Sherlock Fic: The Habits of a Lifetime by out_there
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing: Mycroft Holmes/Greg Lestrade
Rating: Mature
Length: ~ 54,000
Summary: The idea of Sherlock and Eurus connecting over music, over anything, is terrifying. Mycroft has spent decades watching over Sherlock, talking about their fictional family dog and the myth of the east wind, trying to protect Sherlock from the things he doesn’t remember. He’s worried about Sherlock and stood guard over Eurus, and been worse than useless in the end. He was complicit. While he thought he was juggling both threats, maintaining enough control over the situation to keep everyone safe (mostly Sherlock, but the rest of the world as well), he had allowed the threat to escalate.

In which Mycroft is not an easy man to know and an even harder one to look after. Fortunately, Lestrade is diligent and determined, and knows how to pay attention to people. Where family comes with obligations, but it also cares, even when you don't want them around. Where life mostly goes as expected, but sometimes has unanticipated joys.

Reccer's Comments: In the wake of The Final Problem, this is the fic I needed to read. Great Mycroft POV! Reading about his fears, and about the consequences he drew after everything that happened in TFP, the changes he put into motion - that's really how I could see it going. So much so, I'm already thinking of it as part of canon.

DW/TW: History Repeating by telperion_15
Summary: The rift dumps Jack in the middle of a rather famous historical event, where he meets a familiar face.
Reccer's Notes: I adore this story! Jack feeling vulnerable - meeting "his" Doctor but not being able to talk about what's bothering him, and how they connect anyway. Loved the ending a lot, too.

HP: Hit The Ground Running by Tozette
Summary: The Horcrux in Harry's head wakes up and begins talking to Harry long before he's ever heard the name Voldemort. Philosopher's Stone AU.
Reccer's Notes: This is brilliant! Tozette takes several of the most beloved(hated) HP fic tropes and rearranges them into something awesome. It makes me want more!

Also, I usually can't stand Draco, but here...their friendship was pretty cute. I loved all of Harry's relationships with the Malfoys, ambiguous as they were.

TW/In the Flesh: Trade This Life for Something New by KouriArashi
Summary: “Affirmation?” Deaton says.

It takes effort for Stiles to squeeze it out, as it always does. “I am a partially deceased syndrome sufferer, and what I did in my untreated state is not my fault.”

An In the Flesh fusion wherein Stiles is a partially deceased syndrome sufferer coming home, Scott joined the HVF and took a level in badass, and Beacon Hills turns into a battle ground over reintegration.
Reccer's Notes: Even if you haven't watched In the Flesh, you'll have no trouble getting into this story. The worldbuilding is exquisite!

Tolkien J.R.R.: Drawn in the Air by Talullah

Reccer's Notes: I can't tell you how happy I was to find a Gandalf/Legolas slash fic, and not only PWP, but with a really nice plot and relationship development, too!

EFC: In Search of the Truth by tag0
Summary: After the events of the third season episode "Thicker Than Blood", Liam and Sandoval's relationship starts to change. But is either aware of how far those changes will go, or how they will affect the future of both Taelons and humanity?

It's a bad week, for everyone. A series of vicious, escalating attacks leads Sandoval to the discovery of a shocking secret; meanwhile, Liam receives several shocks of his own.
Reccer's Notes: This is a nice, long and plotty fic that deals with the relationship between Sandoval and Liam. The fic is part of a series, but this part of the story stands very well on its own.

MCU: A Place To Stand by KageOtogi
Summary: When Tony Stark finds himself trapped in a parallel universe, there’s only one place he can turn to for assistance: Asgard. Unfortunately, the god that answers his call isn’t the one he was trying to reach, and Tony is left relying on Loki to help him take down Amora before she makes the change permanent and leaves Tony stuck in a world where Steve Rogers never became Captain America, Bruce Banner never turned into the Hulk, Clint Barton never went straight, and Natasha Romanoff doesn’t even exist.
Reccer's Notes: This is amazing. Interesting plot and characterisation, engaging, funny, bittersweet and hopeful. More please!

Summary: Academy fic. Dr. Leonard McCoy thinks he has nothing in common with command-track cadet Jim Kirk, until a series of events forces them together. When a simple training mission is derailed into a seemingly hopeless situation, both have to learn to trust one another, and they’ll need all their wits and survival skills to stay alive.
Reccer's Notes: I'm a sucker for academy era, and this is one of the most amazing fics I've ever read. The plot and the characterisation are great, and the attention to detail is exquisite!

Summary: In which Iris and Eddie go house hunting, Eddie has a lot of feelings and makes a lot of coffee, and everyone has to apologise at least once.

Teen Wolf: Whatever Works by KouriArashi
Summary: The problem with having your soulmate's first words to you tattooed on your arm is knowing your whole life that you're fated to be with a jerk. It's enough to make Stiles want to date other people ... which is how he winds up dating his soulmate's nephew.
Reccer's Notes: I'm usually not all that keen on mundane AUs, but this fic is simply awesome, and I love the worldbuilding in particular. Also, Peter, Stiles and Derek make for an unstoppable team, and I really really enjoyed reading this one.

Kingsman: Ace of Spades by manic_intent
Summary: “This is your next target,” Merlin said into Harry’s earpiece, as Harry leaned forward to look at his laptop screen.

It blacked out, for a moment, then a clip out of some interview began to play. The video was in black and white, crisply and tightly shot, its subject a young man shown seated from the waist up, against a pale gray background, grinning at the camera. He was probably in his mid twenties, dressed down in a black leather jacket over a pale t-shirt, loose over denim jeans, his hair long enough to feather slightly over his forehead, a hint of stubble over his chin. He was also, quite possibly, the most beautiful young man Harry had ever seen, and disturbingly… familiar, somehow.

As the young man laughed noiselessly at the camera, elegant serif type faded over the lower third of the screen: Gary Unwin, by Vanity Fair. Harry blinked, and studied the young man’s pretty face more closely, the crinkling around his eyes, the joyous curl to his mouth, the way he sat, relaxed yet alert, like a hunting hound, waiting to come to heel.
Reccer's Notes: In this AU Eggsy gets recruited by Valentine and doesn't join Kingsman. Manic Intent manages to not only make it work, but make it brilliant, too.

Reccer's Notes: After watching all those interviews of them being so cute together and saying such nice things about each other, I just had to try looking for fic. And found this one, which is really awesome. Colin and Taron notice the chemistry between their characters - and between themselves, too.

Cowboys & Aliens: Written in the Stars by lonelywalker
Summary: Even with his memories back, Jake still has nowhere to go.
Reccer's Notes: I'm going to quote another reviewer (inkling) here, because that comment was simply perfect: I love this look at Jake and how he really didn't have a purpose after everything was said and done. And why not Absolution, the town and the act, in one.

Kingsman: Kingmaker by manic_intent
Summary: “Eggsy, I really don’t think-“ Merlin began, and stopped, because at that very moment, Eggsy walked right into a lamp post.

Across the street, at a sidewalk corner cafe, reading a paper, sandwich part-eaten on a plate, sleek, long legs crossed neatly under the table, was Harry Hart.
Reccer's Notes: If this would be the plot of the Kingsman 2 movie, I'd be over the moon. The characterisation, the plot (an argument could be made for labeling it as casefic), the smut - everything's perfect!

Teen Wolf: Play It Again by metisket
Summary: In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

"Laura wants to lure the kid in with food and kindness and make a pet of him, like a feral cat. Derek wants to have him arrested for stalking. They’re at an impasse. (And the rest of the family is staying emphatically out of it in a way that suggests bets have been placed.)"
Reccer's Notes: This one is probably my absolute favourite Teen Wolf fic ever, and I kinda can't believe it that I haven't recced it before. Or that nobody else has. *g*

Kingsman: Care and Custody by esama
Summary: Eggsy takes out the medal in slightly worse circumstances, asking for a miracle.
Reccer's Notes: This one is the first fic I read in Kingsman fandom, and it set the mark really high. I'm not that big a fan of kid fic usually, but I love how Eggsy takes on the task of raising his sister and how all of his decisions always have her as his priority.

Kingsman/MCU: #standbylegion by esama
Summary: V-day takes out the Avengers. JARVIS copes, one tweet at a time.

Kingsman/Stardust: Strange Sights, Strange Wonders by manic_intent
Summary: In the glade where the star had fallen, the gloom of the gnarled old woods was deeper than night, save around the blackberry bush that had broken his fall: the grass and the battered leaves were now luminous, moon-touched. There was a long pause, broken by the sounds of twittering insects and the forest folk, then, there was a loudly groaned, “Fuck!”

The star rubbed a hand over his eyes, then flinched and held his hand up, spreading unfamiliar fingers up against the night sky. He turned his hand this way and that, curling and uncurling fingers, then he let out a softer, yet just as vehement “fuck!” and sat up, wincing.
Reccer's Notes: Even though I haven't read the graphic novels (only watched the movies), I loved this fic too bits. The worldbuilding and the characters are simply fantastic!
