    Stranger Things

    Stranger Things by Sonya

    Summary: Buffy meets someone interesting in an unlikely place… Crossover, Humor, Romance, 2,772 Words.

    Guest Rec’d By: Kira

    Why You Should Care: An HP/BtVS crossover set post-OoTP, the first in a series of three one-shots where Remus meets Buffy Summers in a wizarding employment agency.  Sonya does a great job of giving Buffy her trademark witty, but sometimes foot-in-mouth, remarks without grating on the readers’ nerves and Remus gets an in-character, though slightly snarky personality that is reminiscent of Young!Remus in Marauder-era fics.  It’s touching to read this cute fic where Remus finally meets someone who feels just as out of place in society as he does and doesn’t mind the fact that he’s a werewolf.

    Why You Might Not Care: You might not like Buffy.  You might not like Remus.

    Box, Opened

    Box, Opened by Halrloprillalar

    Summary: Girls and politics. Drabble, 100 Words.

    Why You Should Care: It’s a Harry Potter/Adrian Mole crossover. It’s a 100 word drabble. It’s by that girl that did the Snape-counsels-gay-Hogwartians drabble (recced here 07.01.08). It’s funny, and rips the piss out of canon (in a good way) and Dumbledore features.

    Why You Might Not Care: No content, no meaning, no worthy messages. It’s, basically, a witty one-liner. But what’s wrong with that? Also, will make no sense if you haven’t read Adrian Mole. However, if you haven’t, do.

    Fighting To Explain From In-Between

    Fighting To Explain From In-Between by Inkvoices

    Summary: Dennis wishes he was more like Colin, then maybe he wouldn’t be in this in-between place. Oneshot, 1,766 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Colin and Dennis Creevey are rarely written about in this fandom, and it’s lovely to see a piece that considers their situation during the Second War. Dennis, in particular, is very interesting in this piece, and the limbo between the Muggle and wizarding worlds in which he finds himself is especially intriguing. This piece is sad, but ultimately has an ending which, while not exactly happy, is definitely hopeful. Great characterisation for two fairly obscure characters, excellent flow, and an all-over worthwhile read (as most of Inkvoices’ fic tends to be).

    Why You Might Not Care: I wish I’d seen Dogma, because this was written for an Omniocular challenge in which a TV show or film is incorporated into a fic (Inkvoices chose Dogma), and I can’t really fully understand how this ties in with a film I haven’t seen. Those of you who have seen it are better equipped to judge what sort of job she did at the challenge; as Harry Potter fic alone, though, this is wonderful. No criticism.

    Sherlock Holmes and the Ravenclaw Codex

    Sherlock Holmes and the Ravenclaw Codex by Dolorous Ett

    Summary: “The young man who entered presented an indefinably odd aspect. He was of no more than middle height, and dressed in a long, shabby travelling cloak that did not match his mud-stained army boots or his ebony and silver swordstick. A veritable bird’s nest of bright red hair stood up from his head in wild disarray, framing a broad, freckled face. Nonetheless, his voice when he spoke was cultured and pleasant, despite an underlying note of panic.” Crossover, 27,077 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Because it’s an absolutely fabulous crossover! There’s Hogwarts! And Sherlock Holmes! The biggest rule for writers of crossover fanfiction is to understand both of your subjects equally well, and Dolorous Ett sets us an absolutely perfect example. She’s a master of the Potter universe and a master of the Holmes universe, she’s got all of her characters down perfectly, she’s constructed a fantastic little mystery while still being able to provide some very interesting commentary on Wizarding prejudice of the Victorian era, and she’s managed to do all that and give it to us in traditional Holmesian style. Brilliant! A fantastic addition to both fandoms.

    Why You Might Not Care: Some people don’t like crossover fic. And some people don’t like Sherlock Holmes the way I do, either. But if you do, then this is not-to-miss!
