But in fandom news, my fic has been posted over on xover_exchange on livejournal!
Created for jedibuttercup:
Title: When Atlantis Rings
Fandoms: Narnia/Stargate Atlantis
Characters Rodney McKay, John Sheppard; Susan Pevensie
Spoilers: Through the end of the Narnia books, no spoilers for SGA
Warnings: Slight religious subtext
Disclaimer: Stargate Atlantis and Narnia belong to their respective creators
A/N: Strongly inspired by Neil Gaiman's short story "The Problem of Susan" in his collection Fragile Things.
Summary: Susan is old when the news beaks that governments had been sending people to other worlds. She isn't surprised when she hears a knock at her door.
I've recently started watching the BBC's Sherlock series, which is... amazing! The 3rd and final part comes out tomorrow and I'm sitting on my hands waiting for it. :D So in light of that...
I realize the downside of recing all these good fics is that I have to admit how much fanfiction I actually read. XD *giggles*
The Perils of Urban Warfare by Phantomjam
Summary: "The problems of acclimatising to civilian life a.k.a the travails of John, his therapist and Sherlock."
Why this is worth your time: This is just well written, nuff said. Since the fandom is in its infancy (not Sherlock Holmes fandom, obviously, but this incarnation) it's lovely to see good fic birthed out so quickly. Mostly I'm just impressed. I wish more fics would include outside people such as Harry and John's therapist. John and Sherlock are wonderful, but they are only a small part of the Holmes world. They're great characters as well as great story telling tools. :) Now if we could get a story with the therapist, Harry, AND Lestrade? I'd be pleased as punch. Also, army!Watson is totally under appreciated. :( He invaded Afghanistan and got shot to hell. Let's not forget that.
* In addition, there appears to now be an audiobook - I haven't listened to it yet but I am looking forward to it. :)
** Warnings: Slash : Holmes/Watson, some gore.
X-Files & Highlander Crossover
Summary: "The door to the attic was locked, of course, but he wasn't going to let that stop him. He worked carefully with a credit card, then muttered about rust and simply shoved, until the lock yielded to him with no more than a complaining squeak. He couldn't find a light switch, but it was daytime and enough sun filtered in through the narrow attic window that he could pick his way easily up the creaking wooden steps, painted a long time ago, now leaving little blue paint chips on the soles of his bare feet."
Why this is worth your time: This is epic and amazing and in character and everything a good crossover should be. It utilizes everyone, doesn't forget its plot, and is just plain good. It's slash, but not overplayed and it doesn't (gasp) forget about Scully! She still plays an important and character-true role. <3 I really, really wish it was still online :(
* Warnings : Mulder/Methos slash. Slash doesn't take the front seat, just sorta hangs around. :)
Visions and Revisions by Etherati
Summary: "Stupid Dan breaks his stupid arm. Laurie has to stand in for him - and work with Rorschach - on a critical mission, and reevaluations are made all around."
Why this is worth your time: Laurie! Laurielaurielaurie! Laurie who actually has a character, and opinions, and is worth more than just her really tight latex suit. It takes place in Etherati's Zombi!Verse (which I will rec later *coughs* probably should have reced that first) but all you really need to know is that Rorschach's body temperature is ... below normal... and he is "metabolically impaired" :D Makes people a mite bit nervous... including Laurie.
* Warnings: Slash. Again. Rorschach/Dan (well within its PG-13 boundaries - in fact, the rating is for the violence and gore that we know and love about the Watchmen world...)
And that's all folks.
Apparently half my favorite fics are slash. That sneaked up on me without warning. XD Next week I'll vary up the list and throw in some gen and het as well. :D
BUT I've decided to start reccing fics that simply need to be shared. :) This will be a Saturday thing as (surprise!) today is Saturday. :D
So let's start this off with some good stuff!
The Not Your Teaching Tool Job by BlackEyedGirl
Summary: "Parker doesn't understand why it has to be more complicated than: "I want to be with you, I just don't want to sleep with you." It's everyone else who has the problem. (Parker as a biromantic asexual)"
Why this fic is worth your time: Because this is asexuality in a nut shell and in well-written Leverage form. This fic just makes me warm and fuzzy inside every time I read it. It gets a little repetitive in its message, but that only mirrors the way people actually react to the concept of asexuality. It's wonderful to see asexuality presented in fandom and the fact that it's a well written fic only makes it more lovely.
Ray of Smoke by Tassos
Summary: "Future fic AU after Fractures. Cycles in the future in the midst of war, Moya stumbles across Earth where awaits politics, paranoia, and a decision that will tear John apart."
Why this fic is worth your time: Basically everything by Tassos is amazing and deep and gives me shivers, but this fic in particular is well worth your time. I have a true week spot for outside povs and fics that deal with the harsh reality of the world they are set in, and this fic does all of that. Earth is not the romanticized haven John remembers, and it's heartbreaking. Plus, the John + Aeryn + children relationships are just wonderful. Read this. Warning, it is epic (in length and in content) but well worth it.
Doctor Who/Narnia Crossover
(Yes, you read that right, don't stop reading yet.)
From a World More Full of Weeping by Azar
Summary: "Two people meet who have nothing in common…except a world of loss."
Why this fic is worth your time: The summary doesn't do it justice. This fic is the fix-it that Narnia needs, because (damnit!) Susan just wasn't treated right and it bothers me. This fic is short and sweet and will make you glow. And you know it totally happened. >__> Yup.
Author: Orockthro (aka BalrogsBreath)
Summary: The Guildhouse is nothing like Serenity. From the prompt: "Firefly, Inara, the Guildhouse is solid and unmoving (and nothing close to Serenity)," for havenward.
Rating/Warnings: PG. Implied sex/sex acts. She's a companion, it comes with the territory.
