On Solitude - by Toft - fandom Aubrey-Maturin Series - Patrick O'Brian [Archive of Our Own]
[Cracktastic fannish trope + O'Brianish sensibility in plot and narrative style. -L]

Excerpt:
"The doctor 'as tellypathised 'im. Which as 'e 'as hentered into a mens communis" - Killick laboriously pronounced the phrases with absolute incomprehension, the sounds acquired only by dint of the number of times he had heard Stephen repeat them through the door - "in consequence of a wicked fish what they ate in Portsmouth."

Bonden whistled. "A bad fish can set you down something cruel. My cousin Bob Sullivan - you remember him, out of the Minerva - ate a nasty old plaice in Gibralter that had him laid up for a week. Running back and forth to the head on the hour, he was, until the first lieutenant, a right hard horse, had him stay there until he didn't have nothing more left in him to shit out. But you mark my words, the doctor will set the captain up with a purge and a draft, and he'll be better before you know it."

The Pinocchio Fallacy - by Toft - fandom MythBusters RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Summary:

Sci-fi AU. Adam is a sexbot on the lam with a developing personality. Grant and Tory dreamed of changing the world, but sold out to the man. Kari works in robot rights activism in her off-hours. Jamie specializes in making things do what they weren't supposed to.

Excerpt:
"Adam, this is a complicated situation, but as it seems that Mr. Demanes has not yet completed his payments to Myth Incorporated for you, Myth retains a stake in your ownership, and we have been able to make a deal with him that Dr. Imahara will retain you in San Francisco for three months, at which point we'll make a further assessment of the possibility of repurchasing you from Mr. Demanes, pending an internal review of the viability of Dr. Imahara's research."

Adam's face has gone totally blank as she talks, which Grant has to remind himself doesn't mean he's mad or upset. It means, probably, that he's trying to process what she's saying and hasn't got the RAM to spare to also decide on an appropriate facial expression. He can't blame him; Grant isn't sure what's appropriate either.

[Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. -L]
