Rivers of London/Discworld

Rivers of Ankh-Morpork by [archiveofourown.org profile] melannen
Hilariously in character Rivers of London/Discworld crossover. Oh Peter. It's a good thing he's pretty unflappable.

Really lovely AU where Harry comes back to Hogwarts as the DADA professor and finds some contentment for himself.

Riding in Cars With Boys by [archiveofourown.org profile] aj2245
Five Times Dani and Charlie get stuck in traffic (and one time it's clear roads). This story really gets their partnership in both the funny and heartfelt moments.


Miss Marple

The Spirit of St Mary Mead by [archiveofourown.org profile] lost_spook
In which Miss Marple is an avatar of Nemesis, and the genius loci of St. Mary Mead. So clever!

Absolutely delightful Leverage/Rivers of London crossover.


Stranger Things

Ducks on the Pond by [archiveofourown.org profile] ballantine
Sweetly funny story of Steve trying to get Nancy and Jonathan on board with the whole polyamory thing (not that Steve knows the word polyamory).

Devil's Cub

a thing with feathers by [archiveofourown.org profile] hazel
So Devil's Cub is my very favorite Heyer, and possibly my favorite romance of all time, and this version of it is utterly brilliant. I am completely entranced by this version of Mary and Dominic, and their continental adventures, plus the story rehabs Mary's mother and sister, as well! Absolutely amazing.


Gilmore Girls

what are you afraid of, making it better? by [archiveofourown.org profile] dollsome
"But I was happy doing it because the whole time I thought, ‘I bet this will make Lorelai smile.’ I can’t tell you all the stupid stuff I’ve done over the years and liked doing just because I knew you would smile at it. And I don’t want there to ever be a day when you don’t feel like smiling and it’s my fault you feel that way. So if I’m making you feel bad, you have to tell me, okay? Because then I’m letting you down, and that’s the one thing I never want to do.”

“Really?” she teases, starting to smile. “The one thing?”

“I’m not wild about the idea of watching Stars Hollow Elementary’s production of Godspell either,” he says dryly, “but we both know you’re going to drag me into that one.”
Emily saves the day and Luke and Lorelai talk instead of being stupid. The perfect s6 fix-it. *happy sigh*

Quiet, lovely, first time Danny/Rusty.

Molly reflects on life at the Folly.

Fifty silver bells and nine by [archiveofourown.org profile] Shimi
Excellent casefic set between Broken Homes and Foxglove Summer (so no spoilers for the latter). (There is some weird formatting stuff going on though - extra spaces inserted in a lot of words)


Oxford Time Travel Series

Nothing Lost by [archiveofourown.org profile] drayton
Colin's ten-year journey to bring Polly home. Excellent story, filling in the part of the story the novels didn't give us (without some of the more annoying tics). Definitely recommended, but carve out some time - it's 83k words long.



Home is where by [archiveofourown.org profile] jamjar
Dani, in the aftermath of the series finale. Thoughtful and true to all the characters.

Rivers of London

Birdcage by [archiveofourown.org profile] Philomytha
When Nightingale disappears, Peter tries to find out what happened to him. But with the London Olympics opening in a few days and a string of magical crimes across the city, he can't afford to let any more major tourist attractions blow up either. Excellent casefile set after Broken Homes that gets Peter's narration just right.


Young Avengers

But Never Mind The National Anthem by [archiveofourown.org profile] heartequals
"You're suggesting we educate America about America?" Billy asks.

"Yes," says Kate.

"This could blow up in our faces very easily," says Teddy.

"That's what makes it fun," says Kate.
The team tries to catch America up on Earth-Earth pop culture. Aw, heart.

Shoring up the Walls by [archiveofourown.org profile] Philomytha
Peter and Nightingale in the aftermath of Broken Homes. Melancholy and true. (spoilers, obv.)

Zombies of Wimbledon by [archiveofourown.org profile] Philomytha
Nightingale and Peter deal with zombies. They're not quite what Peter expected. Meditative little casefile that takes place after Broken Homes, but touches only tangentially on those events.

Harry Potter

Home by [archiveofourown.org profile] xylodemon
Remus and Sirius live together in a grotty flat after leaving Hogwarts. Oh boys. They have no idea how short their time together will be. *sob*

Lupin's Magical Loaves (Get Your Buns and Alibis Here) by [livejournal.com profile] woldy
"Yes, this is my bakery," Remus said calmly.

The younger Auror frowned at him. "Nobody makes their own bread. People buy it from a shop."

"You're quite right," Remus said cheerfully, gesturing around him as he said, "I run the shop."

Both Aurors looked around suspiciously, taking in the display of bread, buns, and biscuits. Remus wondered what they had expected to find.
Baker!Remus. Oh heart. He and Sirius need to enjoy it while they can. *sob*

Coffee Break by [archiveofourown.org profile] Philomytha

'Tis Impossible To Be Sure Of Any Thing by [archiveofourown.org profile] karanguni
Really excellent story about Vetinari and Moist and Death and taxes.



Stratigraphic Context by [archiveofourown.org profile] Aderam
"What's the plan?" John asked, redirecting the muzzle of the large gun towards the floor and pointedly taking it from Sam's hand.

"Run for the nearest exit," Sam offered ruefully, leading the way into the hallway. She could hear John's huff of disapproval behind her even over the sounds of people running in their direction.

"I don't think I like your plan," he replied.
Post-movie John and Sam for me! I like how they keep rescuing each other, and I hope that they have a peaceful future free of UAC, and this story gives me both of those things. <3



The Art of Bluffing by [archiveofourown.org profile] CousinShelley
"You're going to sit there until I fall asleep, aren't you? Staring me into submission."

"You wanted to be alone. In Hawkeye logic, that means you don't want to be alone. So I'm going to sit here, yes." She slipped her hand under the edge of the covers and took his, holding it firmly, thumb brushing over the back. "But if you tell anybody I've gone soft and tucked you in, I'll mix castor oil into your still."

Really lovely look at Hawkeye and Margaret's friendship. The ending definitely made me tear up. *sniff*



Hark the Herald Reptiles Sing by [archiveofourown.org profile] Bow
"You see, in essentials we are not so very different. I believe it comes from—your previous life," she says smugly. "There's a kind of affinity between a good surgeon and a talented painter. You grow accustomed to looking inside of people, to seeing on levels that normal people can't reach. Pulling bodies to pieces."

"Some of us do our best to reassemble them," says Joan
Joan and Moriarty share some similarities but it's the differences that are most important. Really nicely done.


Rivers of London

Folly To Be Wise by [archiveofourown.org profile] Philomytha
Excellent casefic that shows how Ettersberg reverberates even now through Nightingale's life.

Understated, sweet, and lovely Morgan/Garcia story where Garcia owns a coffee shop instead of working for the BAU.



Guided by the Beauty of Our Weapons by [archiveofourown.org profile] cjmarlowe
"Well, the nature of our relationship to one another is complicated," said Joan. "Even for your father—who does care about you, by the way, even if he doesn't show it in typical ways—who knows the particulars of my former employment."

"He thinks we should be clearer about the delineation between the personal and the professional."

"Well, I can't argue with that in principle," said Joan, "but since when do we let ourselves be defined by anyone else?"

"Since always," said Sherlock. "I believe that might actually be the definition of definition."

"Well, then it's time we stopped," said Joan. "You're my friend, and my employer, and my mentor, and I am your friend and your colleague and your sounding board. We can be all of those things, as long as we understand the nature of each of them."

"Clear boundaries," said Sherlock. "Consideration. Trust. Occasional bowls of late night ice cream."

Joan smiled at him. "I think we're getting the hang of it."
During a case drought, Sherlock and Joan continue to negotiate their relationship. Nice slice-of-life story.

"What's a community organiser, anyway," she says, "isn't that what we all do, if we're worth anything. I'm a nurse, Ms. Cregg. These days, more of a midwife."

"A midwife?" CJ repeats, again feeling useless and tired.

"Some things take longer to be born than others," Margaret says, and smiles, softly. "Good luck."

Harry Potter/Avengers

Rise and Join a New Order by [archiveofourown.org profile] igrockspock
Natasha Romanov is the Dark Lord's best assassin...until she's sent to kill the best fighter of the Order of the Phoenix, Clint Barton. Cool Avengers/HP fusion where Natasha gets recruited to the side of the good guys in a slightly different way.



well-behaved women seldom make history by [archiveofourown.org profile] Raven
Right from the very beginning, she resolved to make the best of it. And having resolved to make the best of it, she made the best of cockroaches in the shower and scratching noises inside her tent; she made the best of Hawkeye Pierce and his Groucho Marx impersonations and his frightening disregard for everything and everyone; she made some clear-eyed decisions, her first night in camp, about herself and what she wanted and where she wanted to be, and made the best of Frank Burns. Five times Margaret Houlihan was really proud of herself. This is wonderful. <333

Code Name Verity

Dream a Little Dream by [archiveofourown.org profile] osprey_archer
"Maddie!" she said, twisting in a little pirouette. "Come dance!"

"I can't," I said.

"Of course you can!" Julie said. "I shall run up reams of pilots for us both, and we'll dance till dawn." She grabbed my hands. "Come dance, Maddie, do," she said, and gave me her beseeching doe eyes.

Who could resist Julie when she looked like that? She tugged me toward the dance floor, and she'd got me to the edge of it before I recalled that I couldn't dance. "I'd love to, but I don't know how to foxtrot," I protested.

"Don't know how to foxtrot!" She'd had a little too much to drink, I think: her voice was a little too loud, all her sentences ending in exclamation points. She was a bubbly drunk, like it brought out all the joy in her. "I'll teach you," she said, and swung me into her arms: one hand between my shoulder blades, the other holding my hand tight.
This is a really nice happy moment between Julie and Maddie that captures both of them wonderfully, and totally made me cry at the end.

The Surly Bonds of Earth by [archiveofourown.org profile] Emily
"My grandfather has a motorbike garage in Manchester," Maddie said. She couldn't remember the last time she'd had an actual conversation about more than the terrible food or the conditions of the last flight. But she was enjoying this one with a girl who also loved engines even though her accent was more BBC than a mechanic's. *sniffle* This is really lovely, and I was so pleased to read a story where Maddie makes another friend.



Mother Tongue by [archiveofourown.org profile] elle_dritch
'Mother has a strong will and a dry tongue,' she said, 'but to drive a mage to spell her death? That-- Wait, there's no mage on the Overfell but the one at Re Albi.'

'Yes,' said Beech. 'The wizard Aspen.'

'I don't know his name,' said Apple impatiently. 'She never told me that, but Re Albi-- Yes, she said that the mage there had taken a dislike to her because she was a woman.'

'It can't just have been that,' exclaimed Spark. Apple swung her head like a bull to look at him and said, 'For some men that's all that's needed.'
Really fantastic post-Tehanu story - I love getting to see Tenar and Ged from Apple's POV, and this story brings both Apple and Earthsea to life, as well as capturing the characters vividly.
