Five Acts Round 5

(About a month ago, I essentially quit LJ. I'm still not back back, for those of you who know me from my personal journal, but I find myself wanting to write again. Fanfic has always been my escapism and I'm not sure why I thought this should end now. To this end, I'm going to try to participate - rather belatedly - in this round of Five Acts, which has always been one of my very favorite fanfic-related events. I think I'm also going to give mini_wrimo a shot this year. We'll see!)

How It Works
-Post a list of your five favorite acts/kinks to read about. Check out this list if you need some inspiration. At the bottom, add what fandoms/pairings you're interested in.
-Post a link to your list here.
-Read other people's lists; the master list of lists is here.
-Post comment-fic based off of other people's interests.

What a Wild-Eyed Beast

Title: What a Wild-Eyed Beast
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Don't own them; just borrowing.
Summary: Abby, Joe (and Luka, by default), and fallout. Things don't so much blow up as just slowly crumble.
Spoilers: Do spoilers for ER even count anymore? Um, I don't know episode names anymore, either. Season 14. This takes place after Abby is out of rehab, and goes AU after that (ie, no Abby-goes-to-Croatia or cheesy rowboat analogy or Boston move).
Notes: For bowlerhat_girl, who requested divorced Abby, with Joe. She said I could go angsty or happy, and I think we all know this is going to be angsty. I hope I do your prompt justice, hon ♥
Also for Women Fandom Hates Fest day 3. And the title is a bit of a line from Dave Matthews Band's “The Space Between,” because it was pretty much the Luka/Abby anthem back in the day, and sometimes I just cannot help myself.

The Quotable Abby Lockhart

[for Women Fandom Hates Fest day 2]

Abby Lockhart, in quotes. Snarky, angsty, funny, sad...These run the whole gamut. Some of my favorites, and/or those that showcase the different bits of her personality the best. Couple of other-people-on-Abby quotes in here, too, but most are hers alone.

{These go in chronological order. Yes, I'm missing some from the end of her run on the show. I had these saved a long time ago, and there no longer exist any really reliable places to go for ER transcripts, unfortunately, so I didn't add quotes for her later episodes.}

In defense: Kate Austen as a mother

[for Women Fandom Hates Fest day 2]

I'm risking catching flak for this one, I know. Even among Kate fans, after all, there are people who vilify her for raising Aaron. It's not exactly uncommon to hear/read "I like Kate, but..." or "She's great, except for...", and these statements are usually followed by references to her 'stealing' Aaron.

I get most of the reasons why people don't like Kate, even if I don't agree with them. I can understand and respect disliking a particular character! But this one, it plain baffles me. Of all the possible reasons to dislike a character, because she loved a little kid just does not compute with me. At all.

Kate Austen: You're Gonna Need Better Shoes

[for Women Fandom Hates Fest day 1]

Since it's the first day of the hated women fest, here's some Kate Austen from the first episode of LOST. Other than this particular scene being most chilling, most affecting scene of the entire Pilot, it's also a wonderful Kate scene. In a few short, wordless minutes, we find out some essential things about Kate's character, even without knowing much about her at all. Prior to this scene, we've seen her scared and unsure. Now, she's swallowed that down and has come back to her default, Doing What Needs To Be Done (no matter the cost, a common theme with her - and the cost is written on her face, this time). Also, and more importantly, this scene clearly shows Kate is disturbed by violence, death, tragedy. Haters tend to forget this about her.
