So, [livejournal.com profile] frozen_yoghurt told me that the current/next Studio Ghibli fim is going to be about the Chronicles of Earthsea. How cool is that? I wonder how they're going to adapt the books as they're a bit dark, but I have faith. The reason that I think it's taking so long to show up in the States has to do with Disney and their quest to find celebrity voice actors so they can flaunt the big name stars they're most definitely going to sign.

And in this Earthsea vein, I felt like reccing some Dark is Rising recs, because that series needs a movie adaption. Plus I'm avoiding my backlog of Hikago recs. *eeek*

Something Different by [livejournal.com profile] cimmerians AKA Aristide (oneshot, Will/Bran, fluffy) Takes place when the boys are older, teenagers, and years after the events of "Silver on the Tree," Will has been avoiding going back to Wales after everyone forgets the War against the Dark until circumstances compel him to return. Yes, it's schmoopy, but well written schmoop by one of my favorite Highlander and Sentinel writers. It's a nice take on an after series wrap-up that just leaves you happy inside for the two boys.

At fifteen, he was surprised to find that he dreamed about Bran quite a bit, more and more often as the year went on, and he actually wondered if this was perhaps a hint from the Old One side of things that he should follow up on, if Bran were perhaps in some sort of danger... until one night he dreamed with depthless clarity that he was back on that hillside getting lessons in Welsh pronunciation, watching Bran's bow-shaped lips and pink tongue carefully, so very carefully, and the state in which he woke from this particular dream was quite sufficient to illuminate *that* mystery, and to prove that Bran wasn't really in much danger at all, as long as Will stayed away from him.

First Draft by [livejournal.com profile] rhymer23 (ficlet, Merriam, gen) Written for the the [livejournal.com profile] darkisrising100 challenge: the Book of Gramarye. This is short and sweet and most definitely giggle worthy. A lot of the drabbles on the [livejournal.com profile] darkisrising100 community are very well written, but I just have to get off my butt and read them.

Lost prince, Beloved son, New boy, and Chosen heir by [livejournal.com profile] rhymer23 (drabbles, Bran, gen) So as not to spoil the drabbles I'll quote you the author's intro to the them, Bran could have had an entirely different life, if different choices had been made by others round about the time of his birth. So here are four drabbles, three of them AU (each one being a different AU), and one "real."

Falling by [livejournal.com profile] rhymer23 (oneshot, Will/Bran, dark) 'I will never forgive you', Bran says, when he finds out how much Will has hidden from him. Will raises his hand, and speaks a word... 'Anyone can fall, but some must not.' What I really love about this story is the look at Will and how imperfect people are. Imperfection is part of what makes someone human and even an Old One like Will succumbs to it.

On the [livejournal.com profile] shinra_lackey front I'm done editing Title Match and High for [livejournal.com profile] hikago_djs, but I just want to wait until the weekend to post them. I have a ton of work coming up, so my quest to finish Beside You 3 in Emperors by the 14th will be a stretch. Oh well.
