"It Was a Dark and Stormy Night" by MaryPSue
Summary: Sarah is woken in the middle of the night by a knock on her door. Suddenly, she finds herself thrust back into a fairy-story, with the most unlikely of allies at her side. But Sarah's forgotten that fairy tales can be cruel. With her little brother's future on the line, she will be forced to make a choice - and, once again, learn the hard way to be careful what you wish for.

Notes: This is unusual for a Labyrinth story in that Irene gets a good part; for once, she isn't the villain here. No, the villain is someone quite unexpected. Sarah is forced once again to face her past and her insecurities and overcome them. Toby has some insecurities of his own. I really liked the characterisation in this; all around good characterisation for everybody.

"The Boy Who Spoke With Ghosts" by AvocadoLove
(Inception/Sixth Sense)
Summary: No one suspects Arthur. He's too practical, too organized, too sensible to believe in the supernatural. Based on the kink meme prompt: Arthur's real name is Cole Sear.

Notes: I love this, not just for the crossover idea, but because, like both Inception and Sixth Sense, the characters are forced to wrestle with their demons in order to overcome the real dangers they were facing.

Caveat Emptor: this is marked as both slash and gen. I think one can read it either way.

"PUSH" by Tree And Leaf
(Harry Potter)
Summary: Amy thinks magic is evil. So the Hogwarts letter is a bit of a nasty surprise... A story about faith, doubts, and growing pains.

Notes: This treats the topic with affectionate ribbing and sincerity. Well done.

"On a Cloudy Day" by Lyrstzha
Summary: After defeating Bo, Sunshine would like to rest and recuperate and get back to her simple life---even if that life isn't so simple anymore, even if it does have a vampire, magic, and a war against evil in it now. But when is anything ever that easy for her nowadays?

Notes: This follows on from the book in just the right way, with yet another "oh shit" situation that Sunshine gets plonked into.
If you can cope with the whopping great plot-hole that's used to push Sunshine into that situation, that is.
But if one doesn't let technicalities about fingerprints bother you, it's good. The characterisation is just right.
It feels like the first chapter of a longer story, but it gives you a good taste of what might have happened next.

"Brought to Light" by Innocentsmith
Summary: There were actual things we actually needed to discuss, if I could figure out a good way to say, hey, so I seem to be working a lot with people whose entire purpose is wiping out your kind. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but the world appears to need saving. Is that something you could maybe help with? (Coda to the novel, gen-ish, in which Sunshine needs a good night's sleep.)

Notes: This is good; it feels like the book, it has Sunshine's voice, and the torn-in-different-directions feel of the book. It also gives us the people around Sunshine with their different sorts of wisdom.
And, like the book, it is open-ended; it gives us a mere taste of what-happened-next.

"Anthropology" by Nicola Mody
(Blakes 7)
Summary: Vila takes Orac and uses it to sabotage the Federation. In the meantime, Avon is looking for him. (PGP)

Notes: Sharp and bittersweet; this author always does good Vila and Avon, and this story is no exception.

"Future Is Now Remix" by AstroGirl
(Doctor Who)
Summary: He said once that he'd make a very bad god.

Notes: This is a remix of "Beyond the End of Time", and a very lovely remix it is too.
It resonates even more than the original, resonates with who the Doctor
is and his past and his future and what he loves.

"Stunned By Love" by Nicola Mody
(Blakes 7)
Summary: Kertis Chevron's new business partner was not at all what he'd expected. Beautiful and outspoken, Valanne Ward was also the perfect image of a woman he thought was dead, a woman who had once ruled a star-spanning empire and had almost won his heart--and almost killed him. But was she a schemer out for revenge, or an innocent caught up in circumstances she didn't understand?

Notes: Take some romantic cliches, add our snarky and suspicious crew, and mix well.

"Silent And Alone" by Nicola Mody
(Blakes 7)
Summary: When Vila withdraws and refuses to speak, Avon takes him to Kaarn for help, but they find more than that.

Notes: I like this because of the healing and reconciliation for all parties; not an instant fix, which makes
it more believable. Of course, this being a Blake's 7 story, there is absolutely no soppiness whatsoever.
Just a gradual movement from despair to hope.

"The Hand Of Friendship" by Nicola Mody
(Blakes 7)
Summary: PGP; Vila's hands have been damaged, and nobody volunteers for the therapy needed... except Avon.

Notes: Lovely Avon-Vila friendship story. Avon makes amends, and it isn't an easy road.

"Vila's Emails" by Nicola Mody
(Blakes 7)
Summary: Vila Restal's emails to his Mum, and other people.

Notes: This story (if story one could call this massive effort) had also been mentioned on the Lyst, and I confess I was intrigued. This chronicles Vila's emails to his mother (and various other people) and their replies, covering the entire series from start to end. In one sense, the whole idea is silly, since one couldn't realistically expect, in such a hard-bitten and grim universe as Blake's 7, that anybody could successfully get away with carrying on a correspondence with his mother and not have dire repercussions. But, if one considers this a sort of alternative universe, a bit more light and fluffy than the real one, then one can happily plunge in and be heartily entertained. Even this light and fluffy universe couldn't ignore the darkness of the fourth season; by the time we got to the description of what happened in "Blake" I almost had a tear in my eye. The characterisation of Vila was very good, offering plausible explanations of some of the inconsistencies, and showing him in a far better light than some of his compatriots might have imagined. It was also good seeing the others, especially Avon's insults and Servalan's intimations of what she'd do to Vila if she got her hands on him.
