Mr. & Mrs. Mord'Sith by [personal profile] trancer21 is LotS/Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Cara/Kahlan, Mature with warnings for dubcon (we're talking Mord'Sith after all). This is EPIC. With shoutouts to so many favorites -- Star Wars, D.E.B.S., Burn Notice, etc. -- it's really more of a mashup than a crossover although the Mr. & Mrs. Smith/LotS AU is real here. Srsly. This is just masterfully done. Fantastic plotting with a story and action that keeps you clicking even though it's 3 am. Hopelessly romantic, yet utterly badass and incredibly LOL funny, trancer even throws in some FPREG for the icing on the gigantic cake of femslashtic crack. Cara is everything you want her to be (BAMF w/'feelings') and this really is her fic although Kahlan is every bit her badass mate in every sense of the word. In a world of badassery (there's that word again), magic, Confessors and Mord'Sith (who, thankfully, aren't the good/evil dichotomy I see too often), they complete each other in the best way possible. This goes up there in the Hall of Fame for me.

Yay! I get to use my shiny new DreamWidth account to respond!

What's really weird? I've never actually *seen* 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' (I know - bad Angelina Jolie fan)! So I have no idea if my story resembles that one in any way! Heh, and would you believe this was supposed to be a short little PWP!?!

If I learned anything from writing this fic, it's how much I really need to stop posting WiP's before they're done.

Ha! I think I was turned off by the 'this is the movie where Brad and Angelina fell in LURVE' hype. Like, if I'm gonna watch Real Person (but not exactly) Fiction featuring Angelina Jolie, I'd like it to be with someone other than Brad Pitt!!

?? Why?

No big reason other than my record of petering out in the middle of writing WiP's and, had I posted it as a WiP, some of the more interesting ideas that I came up with later wouldn't have been there at the beginning. Like the news segments, which didn't occur to me until somewhere around the 20k mark.

And, seriously, how the HELL am I supposed to write a sequel for a fic where I threw EVERYTHING, including the kitchen sink, into it?

Well, if it helps, I am about ten thousand words into the sequel and, at the rate things are going, it's probably going to be about as long as the first one.

I may start putting up chapters on my DW since, heh, it's not like anyone's paying attention to what I do over here and I only have three subscribers. Plus, it's a bit.. um, darker in tone. Heh, it's totally the Empire Strikes Back to the original's Star Wars. If, you know, either of those movies had hot girl-on-girl action!
