Down by the Beach by binz and shiplizard
Forever, gen. "The year: 2040. The place: Kaanapali, Maui. The occasion: the 30th annual IndieHouse amateur horror film fest. Chief ME Lucas Wahl is taking a well deserved vacation to showcase some of his amateur films and catch up with fellow horror nerds when he runs into an old, old friend. Funny how Henry Morgan doesn't seem to have aged a day. More importantly, though, he's a mess. Immortality's really cool, but friendship is more important." // Future fic, Lucas POV. Sweet, gentle plot where an older Lucas falls over a wrecked Henry on the beach, dusts him off, and gets him back on his feet again. And takes him to a roman-a-clef horror movie screening (LOL). Never watched this show, but the fic doesn't really require it.

Tik Tok by binz, shiplizard
Rivers of London/Forever, Peter & Lucas, Walid & Henry. "Well, tonight he either saved Henry from being spied on by UNIT or he got a British visitor drunk and gave him a really fun club crawl to cheer him up. Either way, victory. Good job, team." // Lucas POV. Meet-cute: So Lucas's Internet nerd-buddy is in NYC on biz and turns out to be, surprise, Peter. I've not watched Forever, but this is rather fun anyway. Background unseen shenanigans with Walid and Henry. Could have sworn I'd saved this one; evidently not.
* "Nil Mea Refert," Peter POV, sort followup fic.

Ship to Wreck by binz, shiplizard
Hornblower, Bill/Horatio, AU. "Mutiny and madness aren't the only troubles stalking the Renown. Luckily, Bush knows how to take anything in stride." Horatio is a murderous captured siren. Well, captured in the sense that he's now impersonating an officer and refusing to leave. // LOL, very short but weirdly adorable.

Interlude With Some Vampires by binz, shiplizard
Discworld, Glenda/Nutt. "Glenda and Nutt in Quirm. Romances aren't as tidy when they happen in real life, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth having." An orc and a pie-maker on a daytrip fall in amongst terribly refined vampires. Some of whom sparkle a bit. And deliver makeovers.
The one bad shock she had was passing one of the curtained alcoves and having it pulled open from inside. A figure lurched out, pale and red-lipped, face in a mask of anguish. She recoiled against Nutt, and she felt something dig into her wrist.
"Antoine!" whined the figure. "Where is the count?"
"Go back to bed, Marcus," Antoine said, unmoved. "You're scaring the guests."
"I must speak with him, Antoine! I am undone!"
"You had another rejection letter," Antoine translated.
"It is treachery. Treachery! Favouritism! I was reborn to play this part!"
"We have guests," Antoine said firmly, and shooed the wine-soaked vampire away like a stray cat. Quirmian swearing echoed down the stairs.
"I-- apologize." He looked nearly sheepish. "Once, this was a theater of the damned. The damnation, we have taken it out, but the theater-- that we could not get out. This is-- pardon me-- a hive of *actors.*"
"We'll brave the danger," Glenda said, not entirely sarcastically.
// LOL. Haven't even read this particular book (Unseen Academicals?), but this was so, so sweet, with loads of sendups of vampire fiction (eps. Rice, Meyer).

Like I Like My Coffee by binz and shiplizard
Hornblower, Bill/Horatio (main), Horatio/Edward Pellew, AU. "Bill Bush is a long-suffering business analyst and massive extrovert; his flatmate/occasional fuckbuddy Horatio Hornblower is a neurotic programmer and massive introvert. Between them, they're desperate to keep a dysfunctional software office afloat in the face of paranoid managers, incompetent interns, corporate espionage, and a shocking, shocking lack of decent coffee. Now a man named Pellew's come from the London branch with a new project to redeem their struggling crew. Marketing is calling it Project Hotspur...." // Modern AU for an age-of-sail fandom, with canon(ish) events transposed into a high-pressure office environment. (And here, Maria is the third flatmate.) Fairly engrossing.
* "Coffee Break," Prequel. Bill's dad drifts through, makes fry-up, survives the garage's version of coffee.

Loose Ends by binz, shiplizard
Dresden Files, Hendricks, Charity Carpenter, Maggie Dresden, gen. "Tying up loose ends is part of Hendricks' job. Sometimes that's not even a euphemism for murder. But this is going to take a personal touch, and Hendricks might get a little tied up in it." Marcone provides suitable cover for the newest Carpenter kid; Charity isn't pleased with the situation. // Another Hendricks fic of awesomeness. I don't grok the Carpenters or their motivations in canon (they strike me as more quiverfull than catholic), so I rely heavily on fanfic to make them comprehensable; with b&s fics in particular, I love the less obvious, interesting ways they approach this canon.
This fic tackles a major canon fail: Why would anyone think Maggie is "hidden" at the Carpenters' house, particularly when Dresden's Very Distinctive Dog has moved in as well? How could they get legal guardianship? Why would anyone assume that Marcone isn't keeping close tabs on the household of a dude who's collecting disability as a direct result of saving his life, esp. in a canon where favors and debts are critical?

Idle Fancy by binz and Grenegome
Dresden Files, Gard/Hendricks. Gard rescues Hendricks, then decides to woo him in the traditional manner. // LOL. I love the way fandom writes these two. With bemused Marcone on the side.

River Front by binz and shiplizard
Dresden Files/Rivers of London, Murphy/OFC. "Harry's not the only one who gets propositioned by great supernatural powers." Murphy gets cruised a cheerful stranger in a coffee shop. // I read it, said HMM, then looked up the other series on Wikipedia. Oh, ha, v.v. cute. :)
Sequel: "Water Color,"
PC Peter Grant requests an audience with Chicago on the worst possible day. (gen)

Bearserkr by binz and shiplizard
Dresden Files, Harry/Hendricks, Harry/Hendricks/Gard. At a small out-of-town club, Hendricks (POV), Gard, et al. are investigating the origins of a new magical drug on the market that interacts with the Nevernever in bad ways. But buying a disguise potion from Dresden may have been a mistake--he can't keep his nose out of a mystery. // 34K. Legit case fic combined with undercover-in-a-gay-bar plus WinterKnight!Harry. The kink aspect here is bears and hairiness and size more than anything else, and it's really well done. I'm really into the way they work with canon details and balancing the precarious character relationships. It's refreshing also read a rather dry, intelligent, (relatively) outsider POV.

The Knight and the Pea by binz and shiplizard
Dresden Files, Harry/Marcone. The Winter Knight is covered with bruises, isn't healing, has no idea why. // Oh, tour of characters, subtle sort of fanfic. (The slash is incidental in this one.)

Mixed Blessings by binz, shiplizard
Dresden Files, Murphy/OFC, (NOTE: add to the Near Miss AU entry). Karrin is tossed out on two-weeks leave, and she jumps on her motorcycle and heads north, ending up in a tiny town on Lake Michigan with an attractive bar owner, where not all is what it seems. // ~Awesome. This is the way Murphy *should* be written: paranoid, cynical, and above all competent to put together the clues and take care of (supernatural) business. The asides about Dresden are mildly hilarious. Also smut.

Near Miss (series) by binz and shiplizard
Dresden Files, Harry/Marcone, AU. The mechanic with the limp who fixes Harry's Bug becomes his friend, his roommate, then more. In the meantime, Madeline Raith has married the head of the Vargassi family, and is taking Chicago for herself. // I was leery about reading this one for a while, but it turns out to be REALLY GOOD, plausible w/in canon parameters, and v.v. plotty w/ a lot of decent twists. In the end, this Alt version of Marcone is just as prone to taking over as the regular flavor. Three (completed) parts posted. A big fourth seems to be in the offing at some point.
* "Near Miss,"
42K, Harry meets Marcone, and a lot of vampire-related ruckus ensues.
* "Missing Scene,"
1.4K. Lea reminds Harry he'd make an excellent dog.
* "Snow Days,"
46K. While Harry is still coming to grips with the sudden (to him) acquisition of a sleep-in partner, a major noble of Winter is kidnapped, and Harry has to rescue him before all hell breaks loose.
* "Threeway Mirror,"
4K. PWP. Alt!Marcone/Harry/Canon!Marcone. One-off, why-not, not-really-related porn.

The original posting of this fic (anon kinkmeme) has a long, long, long meta discussion in the comments.

Dresden Files, Harry, VW Blue Beetle, gen.

* "Blue Hour," Gen, Harry, Blue. On a job in Ohio, Harry is rescued from a sticky situation by a stranger with a VW tattoo. // Not too long, rather sweet dose of H/C.

* "Blue Christmas," Gen, Blue, Marcone, Hendricks, Gard, Harry. Harry's car comes to collect him in Winter for the holidays. // Holiday fic (2012). Aw. Sweet.

Not Even Silence in Chicago (series) by binz and shiplizard
Dresden Files, Harry/Marcone, Gard/Hendricks, etc., etc. Sprawling postapocalypse AU, post-"Ghost Story." Nicodemus kicks Earth's ass basically, lots of people die, and all the Nevernever critters leap at the dinner bell. Harry's the Winter Knight, and everyone else is grouping together and trying to get by in various survivor enclaves, one of which is Marcone's estate. // This one's set up as various fanfics that cover the same span of time in a nonchronological fashion, with a lot of jumps forward and backward to color in the events. It's a bit confusing, but hanging in there totally pays off in the end. The worldbuilding is amazing. I love this so much and reread the whole thing periodically. (Whole series is WIPish in the sense that more can be added on.) (Basically I love this thing to distraction and reread whenever it comes to mind.)
* Not Even Silence In The Mountains. Marcone POV. Basic situational setup, basic relationship setup. Marcone's convoy is ambushed on the way back to the Fort; Harry intervenes.
* Upside Down in Air. Angsty pairing porn with a side-order of the ridiculous (3K).
* This, And Only This, We Have. John sells Harry and Bob up the river. Harry eventually gets over it. Makeup sex ensues, but much angst.
* Dry Bones Can Harm No One. The big, sprawling 88K installment where Harry takes a case for Murphy in Wisconsin (horror ahoy), and it also fills in the backstory blanks on the entire AU.
