[Week 8] - Supernatural RPF

Until You're Resting Here With Me (Supernatural RPF | Jared/Jensen | NC-17 | 63,425 )
Author: nyxocity
Summary: Accidentally trapped traveling through time through a project of his own design, Dr. Jensen Ackles finally finds himself twelve years in the past, in his own body, face to face with Jared Padalecki. His memory shot through with holes from time traveling, Jensen doesn't remember exactly what happened between them in the past, but he knows how he feels about Jared, and he knows things ended badly. Given a chance to do it right this time, can he change history—or does destiny have bigger plans? Based on the TV series Quantum Leap.
Reasons for Reccing: Quantum Leap!! *ahem* Okay, so it's not exactly hard science, but I love the premise! I have strong roots in science fiction and well written time travel will always appeal to me. Plus the idea that love conquers all speaks to my cynical heart. This author takes the idea of Quantum Leap and makes it her own. This story manages to bring everything full circle to a beautiful, touching conclusion that makes the whole wild ride well worth it. This is another one of my 'go to' fics that I've read many times. It transcends fandom, IMHO, because even if I stop reading J2, I know I'll always treasure stories like this one.

Nyxocity! Can't wait to read this one!
Isn't Quantum Leap super old? - I looked it up on Netflix. Do you recommend it? My reading list and my netflix queue just keep growing...

Quantum Leap is old. At this point, it's so dated that you might not enjoy it. It depends on what you like. :) It's been years since I've seen it, but I could still draw the parallels regardless. This fic will be enjoyable without any prior knowledge of the show.

So many shows, so little time! We're actually watching a foreign film now that I've been meaning to watch for ages.

What's the name of the foreign movie? We watched Battle Royal which is the Japanese version of The Hunger Games and was made way before the Hunger Games books were written.

It was a Bollywood film called 'Three Idiots' and I highly recommend it. Very inspirational.

How was Battle Royal? Do you recommend?

I saw the three idiots, and I loved it. All is well!
Battle royal was bizarre. Not inspirational at all. You might like it if you like Quintin Tarantino. Very brutal and bloody and senseless. But a decent story.
