Since I have branching out into Other Fandoms these past months, I thought I would link to a few fics I have enjoyed - from some pretty disparate fandoms - in case anyone else fancies a read :)

Subtle Salvation by Abyssinia (3809 words). Aliens AU! Follows on from Aliens (the second film in the series) and gives a much more satisfying account of What Happened Next to Ripley, Hicks and Newt. Not fluffy in the slightest, but still hopeful and kickass.

Love A Loathed Enemy by dollsome (1924 words). Anne of Green Gables fic that perfectly fits into canon. One afternoon, Miss Stacy has the class read some Shakespeare. Guess who end up playing Romeo and Juliet XD

The Green Blade by Verityburns (72912 words). A Sherlock fic that reads incredibly like an extra episode of the show. It’s not slashy (although you could read that into it) but it is totally engrossing, well characterised and genuinely intriguing (I thought I had guessed the serial killer, but I was wrong!). I particularly loved the characterisation of Sally Donovan.

Four Identities Susan Pevensie Never Had To Assume, and One She Might Have Chosen by Cofax (6670 words). Interesting take on the different lives Susan might have had, a mix of dark and light in these.

Untouched by Kyliselle (2500 words). A Star Trek reboot fic. Not Kirk/Spock slash, although this depicts a wonderfully warm relationship between them. It’s mostly a one shot of Spock bumping into Stonn and musing on the differences between Vulcans and Humans when it comes to touch. Has a lovely ending.

Marianne by 55anon (4686 words). Beautiful character study of Marianne from Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility and how she sees the people around her.

A Curious Carriage of Crystal and Gold by Etharei (114215 words). X Men AU (Charles/Erik). It’s been a while since I read this one, but I do remember that I just could not stop reading. It starts off quite interesting and then develops a hell of a plot, with secrets and lies, space battles, deposed Kings and lost cultures. It reads like a proper sci fi novel, and all the usual X Men characters turn up. Fast paced and plotty!

Mascot by dagas isa (469 words). Last but not least, a sweet little missing scene (or rather missing pov) from Tamora Pierce’s ‘Protector of the Small’ series in which Jump the dog decides he’s going to stay with Keladry after all (also features Daine, who I love!)

For all the Merlin and Sherlock fans on my flist - you've probably read and loved the growing number of fics where Merlin and Arthur turn up at 221B Baker Street, but have you ever wondered what it might be like if Sherlock and John turned up in Camelot?? And not time travelling Sherlock and John, but full on medieval sleuths Sherlock and John. Much like making a modern re-imagining of Sherlock, only 1,400 years earlier in fact.


Instead go read [ profile] jamie15's rather wonderful How Sherlock Holmes and John Watson Met King Arthur of Camelot (and Somehow Weren't Burned at the Stake). I was lucky enough to see this as it was being written and it is effortlessly charming, funny and clever. It fits in with series 4 canon and has a PERFECT Sherlock voice. You will love him and totally imagine Benedict delivering all the lines <3

Also, OF COURSE Sherlock would deduce everyone's secrets in about a minute flat and be a total pain in the ass while doing do. He is Sherlock Holmes :D

So it turns out my dad has been getting SNEAKY INTERNET VIA A DONGLE FOR A DAY AND A HALF(for work, to be fair, and on the slowest speed ever). Anyway he is watching a film downstairs so I have stolen his laptop for about a minute and a half).

Anyway, check out this South Korean trailer for Sherlock! My brother sent it to me with the comment "I didn't know it was so romantic".

If anyone asks, I was never here.
