shesgottaread: (7 ate 9)
I don't often do this, and perhaps I should more often, but here are a couple of recommendations for some Devil Wears Prada femslash. Written by [ profile] girlie_girl_23 in response to prompts offered from winning bids in the [ profile] help_japan auction last year, I found them both to be very enjoyable, and they will go on my permanent to-read-again (and again) list.[Bad username or site:     The Sweet Science  This one was written in response to my own prompt for Andy and Miranda in an old-school boxing gym. At the time I came up with the prompt, I'd been listening to NPR and a story they did on a boxing gym and that establishment's guidance, mentoring and support of disadvantaged youth. That story reminded me of the craze from years back (1980s perhaps?) for boxing as a fitness regimen. Since I tend to think Miranda is the sort to be into more active exercise activity, and she was "coming up" at the same time that boxing became the "hot" thing to do, I wondered: wouldn't it be fun to see Miranda doing something other than yoga or pilates? And then, what would it be like to see Andy and Miranda go at it in the ring?  girlie_girl_23 @] drew me the picture wonderfully, and I loved it from the setup to the action and then to the aftermath. (Additionally, now I'm going to have to find out who Erica and Kate are, and see what other fic is out there for them. A new fandom or two? One never knows!) *g*

Not Made to Woo
This story (in 2 parts) was also written for the [ profile] help_japan auction; this time for [ profile] perks123, who asked for a story that was "a humorous story that showcased Emily in a good light and had Miranda having to work a little harder to get Andy." And boy, does Miranda have to work for it! I loved this. Emily is such a good sort here, doing spy-duty and doling out advice. For the woman who never asks Miranda anything to be giving dating advice; this was terrific and quite funny! Of course, Miranda being who she is, there will be mix ups and miscommunications which add to the plot and "characters" of the story. [ profile] girlie_girl_23  and I share a love of Broadway and Not Made to Woo even brings the theatre to Andy and the reader in ways only Miranda might do.

A couple rounds of applause from me for both these stories, and I will look forward to future stories from this talented writer.
