The Losers/Jurassic Park

Mission: Dinosaur Adventures by [archiveofourown.org profile] pollyrepeat
"Oh no," said Jensen.

"Jensen, we need to... talk," said Clay, like the words pained him.

"We’ve noticed that you seem..." Aisha began.

"Please stop," said Jensen. "Please, please, stop."

"Your head is up your ass," she finished, matter-of-fact. The kind of matter-of-fact that meant Aisha was about wade into topics that made her deeply uncomfortable, like feelings. Shit. "Tell us why."

"Would you believe me if I said I didn’t know?"

"Sadly," said Clay, "yes."
*dies and is dead* This is hilarious and perfect. The Losers v. dinosaurs, and Jensen's complete obliviousness to his own and Cougar's feelings. I laughed out loud many, many times and the story isn't even that long.

Hanna

When You Get Older by [archiveofourown.org profile] evewithanapple
Yesterday afternoon, before Sophie had arrived, she'd wanted to abandon the mission she'd been given entirely- vanish somewhere into the heart of the campus, take up classes, be given a certificate stamped with her name and accomplishments and walk along in the footsteps of those students walking across the courtyard in front of her eyes. Perhaps her mother would have wanted that for her. Not for the first time, she wondered if her mother had gone to school, what she might have studied, if she had dreamed of seeing her own daughter graduate. She couldn't know. She wished she could. For years and years she'd done what was expected of her; what was she supposed to do when nobody expected anything? Hanna goes looking for answers after the movie and meets up with Sophie again. Lovely.

Sandman

Recoil and Grace by [archiveofourown.org profile] Effex
Delirium sends Lucifer on an errand to show him it's not too late. With a very cool crossover thrown in for good measure (I don't think you need any familiarity with the other source for this to work, so I am not listing it; if you get it, you will dig it). I enjoyed this.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Driving is like meditation for Sarah Connor.

Ellison doesn't drive with her; he's holed up in a safe house with young Savannah, making plans, making philosophies. He has the Bible, and she has the road.

Star Trek Reboot/West Wing

Election Days by [personal profile] raven
Wonderful Trek/West Wing crossover - CJ and Donna and the election of the President of the United Federation of planets. It's a ceremony for the media. It's always a ceremony for the media. CJ's actually gone outside for the occasion, though, which is something new after what feels like weeks and weeks living inside her office and sleeping under her desk. They're standing backstage, waiting for the fireworks to start. Above, there is the panoply of stellar light, asterisms of geostationary spacedocks with the familiar stars as backdrop.

Donna squeezes CJ's hand: doing okay?

CJ smiles and squeezes back.

Supernatural/Zombieland

Highway to Hell, Michigan by [livejournal.com profile] southwindow

Highly enjoyable crossover with Supernatual & Zombieland. "No need for names," Tallahassee said coarsely, coming around from the trunk and pumping his rifle. "Only wherever it is you're headed." The two guys exchanged looks. Like, weird looks. Like, we're-pompous-asses-but-for-a-good-reason looks. "Well then." He gestured to himself. "You can call me Lawrence. And him?" He grinned, and fuck all if it didn't freak me out a little. "You can call him Detroit."

Supernatural/Burn Notice

Smoke on the Water by [anonymous]
Kids are disappearing in Miami, and Maddie ropes Michael into finding one of them. The Winchesters are working the same case, and when they cross paths, hijinks ensue. I enjoyed this a lot, though there are some weird formatting issues to watch out for.

American Gods

do zla boga by kangeiko
So why, astute readers may wonder, do some older gods survive? Why are they, too, not forgotten in the wind, lost to newer gods with deeper thorns and larger armies at their back? / If I tell you it is good deeds and miracles, you will know that I am lying. Sharp, creepy story well in keeping with the tone of the book.

*

The Graveyard Book

Tipping The Balance by Laliandra
“So, it was a dark and stormy night in Prague,” Eli intoned. Silas frowned and said, “Yes, it was, actually.” “Wow, you two really did grow up together,” Jojo said with a snicker and Bod and Silas exchanged the puzzled glance of the pop culturally illiterate. While I don't really buy the pairing, this is a lovely story of Bod growing up outside the graveyard, and Silas coming in and out of his life, still. Really captures the feel of the book, and the ending is perfect.

Sandman

Schizophasia by Imricita (whatimages)
She tried to make friends with a fairy tale once. It was about a princess who was a cat with emerald eyes; but under the force of Delirium's two coloured gaze, it started to fracture and warp, and soon it wasn't about anything at all. The emerald-eyed cat chases Delirium's fish throughout her realm, and no one remembers her name. Only Delirium remembers it; Delirium remembers everything. Destiny has read much, but Delirium was once Delight, and she forgets nothing. Absolutely dazzling story of the drive to create and the toll it extracts. Paul wants to write a poem. Delirium wants a friend. A bargain is struck. Brilliant.

Lucifer

And End With A Song - by Sullen Siren
"But things will be different." / "They always are. Or they appear to be. The change itself is a constant enough to make it invalidating. Change is constant, and thus nothing really changes," Lucifer said. / Her lips pursed. "You're kind of full of crap, sometimes." / "We can't all be omniscient." / "No, but you're closer than most." Lovely, in character story where Lucifer tells Elaine about Michael. *sniffle*

Sandman

Pieces of Time by [livejournal.com profile] scarletts_awry
The scene in Brief Lives where Delirium and Dream visit Destiny, from Del's POV. I like this story a lot - it captures the wayward nature of Delirium's train of thought, how she digresses and digresses back around to the point maybe even she doesn't realize she's making until she's made it. Lovely. Grief is a floodwater, and it cuts deep enough that it belongs to Delirium. Grief is madness. Grief is knowledge.

Lucifer

Even the Angels by Moontyger
Michael and Lucifer have a conversation. Perfect little snapshot, with one hell of an ending. Short but packs a punch.

Crux by numinicious
While asking for his alliance against the Lilim, Lucifer schools Rudd on a few home truths. I really like Lucifer here. "Are you going to be the pot or the kettle, Morningstar? You, the first among all angels, the cream of the crop, one might say — and you fell. To this pit, to the bottom." Rudd smiles, cruelly. "The metaphor works both ways, Lucifer." "And look at me now." Lucifer matches his smile, kindly. "A Creator. Sometimes you have to fall before you can rise, Rudd."

Gloria In Exelsis Deo (maybe the highest, but not-Heaven) by kassie
I *love* this. I love how it captures Elaine perfectly. I love Duma and his worrying and gardening and his care-taking and his bliss at PIE (I love that there is PIE in a DINER with forward waitresses offering advice). I love grumpy Gabriel and his eons-old feelings of sibling rivalry, and Lucifer's presence at the end, how Elaine still needs his validation, still loves him and how he, in his way, loves her. *heart*

The thing about Dan, the thing that makes him either sexist or chivalrous, a gentleman or a cad, is that he can't stand to see a beautiful woman cry. She doesn't even have to be beautiful, really. Pretty, marginally attractive, homely, hideous, there is something about a woman that is bigger than magic, and there's not a lot Dan believes in, in the way of magic, but women are it. A woman crying means something is horribly wrong, and it hurts Dan's heart.

Something In Between by [livejournal.com profile] dorrie6
Wistful story about Neville and his gran. She loves him, and maybe she hasn't always known how to show it, but he gets it now. Sigh.

Omigod, so very hot. Either Sirius wants to prove he's more perverse than Remus, or he just wants Remus to feel better about his own perviness, or, most likely, a combination of the two. Either way, Sirius wanks while Remus watches. Mere words cannot convey the hotness here.

Harry Potter/Sandman
Place We'd Never Leave by [livejournal.com profile] northatlantic
Snape meets Despair, per my request. It's not pretty, but oh god, the story itself is *gorgeous*. And the *ending*. I never thought I'd find myself feeling sorry for Despair, but Dre manages it. And Snape... *is shamed to admit a soft cry of "woobie" on his behalf almost forced itself past my trembling lips*

Read, love and send the authors feedback. *g*

Happy Thanksgiving!

Crossovers

Ultimate Spider-Man/Ultimate Wolverine
Spray Evenly, Until Slightly Damp by Azurine
Peter Parker and Wolverine sounds like an insane idea, especially in Ultimate-verse, but Az brings both the hot and the funny here, and how can you not love a fic with lines like this: Hey, what's a sponge bath between buddies, right? Logan is hurt bad, Peter’s hiding him, and the smell is going to get Peter in trouble. So what’s a superhero to do? Give the man a bath, right?

*

XMM/HP
Curiosities by Penknife
Tom Riddle meets Erik Lehnsherr. Two men with both more and less in common than you'd expect. Let the creepiness begin.

*

Sandman/HP
Prelude by Nifra Idril
Tom Riddle poring over Roderick Burgess’s journals, as Alex Burgess tries to keep him entertained and away from the prisoner in the basement. Eeeee! *shivers*

Edited to add yuletide author names

I’m separating out the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide recs because they don't have authors' names attached at the moment, but once I add them to the Unfit Recs pages, they’ll just be listed with the rest of the fandom recs, and I'll add the authors' names when they're revealed.

also, how are Jack/Will or Xander/Willow rare pairings? But what the hell do I know?

Yuletide recs, by fandom:

Bend It Like Beckham
Friendship and Love by Claire
Bend It Like Beckham should inspire fic, because who *didn't* think Jules was in love with Jess? Well, Jules isn't sure, herself, and there's that whole Joe thing in the way, but she's working through it, and this fic follows her thoughts

Homicide: Life on the Street
All Is Calm and All Is Bright by Seana Renay
Frank visits Tim in prison at Christmas time. Oh, the guilt, the conversation, the perfect Frankentim-ness of it all will break your heart.

Northern Exposure
Oy Magic by Smara
Northern Exposure fic! Whee! Joel and Chris and blowjobs around a fire at the full moon. Guh. And a really good Joel-voice, I thought, which was necessary to make me believe this, because me? I adored Fleischman/O'Connell in all its irritating push-me/pull-you glory. But Chris... mmm...

Pirates of the Caribbean
Out of His Depth by Gloria Mundi
Oddly, I haven't recced any PotC fic, mainly because I haven't read much of it, though I have a list of links. But I really enjoyed this, with Will getting the tour of Tortuga, and discovering that Jack's beautifully tanned skin lingers in his mind's eye. They go for an unexpected moonlight swim, and Will realizes what he wants. Lovely.

Sandman
Alike in Ignorance by Eleanor K.
Desire intrudes on Dream's meeting with Hob Gadling. Amazingly lovely, in character (and Dream/Desire is a hard sell), and hot, with lush prose and an aching sense of need and confusion. *g* Brilliant.


***

Go. Read. Enjoy. Send feedback.

Also, lemme know if any links don't work, if you liked, you didn't like, you find the recs helpful or not...

Happy Holidays!

Buffy
32 Short Fics About Xander Harris by nwhepcat
32 drabbles, each a snapshot of Xandery goodness, from Welcome to the Hellmouth to Cleveland.

BtVS/Good Omens
California Dreaming by daegaer
Crowley is called to account by Hell’s accounting department. The Hellmouth in Sunnydale is his road home. Yes, Good Omens meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Better on the GO than on the BtVS, but still, a damn funny story.

BtVS/Sandman
The Waiting Room by Nestra
Death's not what Buffy expected. Excellent BtVS/Sandman crossover, that nails both first season Buffy and Death. It made me a little sniffly and still put a smile on my face, which is the essence of both BtVS and Sandman, don't you think?

Sandman
The Boy Who Gave Away His Birthday by Mary Borsellino
Lovely fic about a boy who falls in love with Dream.

*

West Wing
As Chaste as Ice by Heather Jarman
Beautiful, sad story in which Josh contemplates Donna's betrayal, and comes to a decision about their relationship.

*
