Stargate Atlantis: Cocytus, by eretria & murron.
Summary: They cry for those who have no one left to cry for them.
Reccer's Notes: This was written for sga_flashfic's Dark Side Challenge. I don't want to give away too much of the story, but it deals with the darker aspects of the Pegasus galaxy which are rarely shown on the show. The story's creepy and horrifying in a very real way, beautifully written and has great characterization. The images and feelings evoked stayed with me for a long time.

due South: Leaving a mark, by keerawa.
Summary: Inspired by: stop_drop_porn's knife!kink Challenge. I don't do 24-hour deadlines, but it got me writing!
Reccer's Notes: Oh, this is hot and intense and so very much in character. These Fraser and Kowalski can be extrapolated directly from canon. I really love the insight into their characters.

Generation Kill/Stargate Atlantis: Rock Happy, by ArwenLune.
Summary: "You want to recruit me for what? You want me to go where?"
Sgt. Brad Colbert has been on a lot of strange missions, but this promises to be his most out there yet: Atlantis
This is not a story about falling in love. This is a story about falling in team.
Reccer's Notes: I followed this story when is was being posted, and I really fell in love with it. I love how Brad grows here, and I love his interactions with all the other characters. Through his eyes we see a side of Atlantis we usually don't see on the show.
I really recommend the whole series, the story does stand on its own though.

Anne of Green Gables: Chicken Money, by redgear.
Summary: "I suppose we ought to talk about the chickens," Marilla said, briskly serving Matthew a slice of fruitcake, then taking one for herself.
Reccer's Notes: This is a really neat look at Marilla and how she raises Anne. It could have been in the book.  pairing:(gen).no.pairing  character:anne.shirley  character:marilla.cuthbert  character:matthew.cuthbert  length:01.000-5.000.words  creator:redgear  theme:book.fandoms  theme:family  theme:female.characters  theme:female.friendship  theme:old.fandoms  theme:small.fandoms  theme:amnesty  reccer:thady

The Hobbit: My Fair Hobbit, by Erinye.
Summary: Take a dragon and get rid of it, take a Kingdom under the Mountain and let it thrive under Thráin’s rule, take the King’s eldest son - as proud and arrogant as you can picture him - and then send him to the Shire in order to refine his diplomatic skills. Or, as his sister puts it: to grow them at last. Now, throw in the Master of Bag End playing host for the dwarf prince: you’ll get a clash of cultures, an ill-advised bet about educating a certain hobbit in the dwarf-lore, and all the pride and prejudice business you could hope for, plus Khuzdul.
A retelling inspired by My Fair Lady.
Reccer's Notes: I've read this story when it was still a WiP, and I cheered every time a new chapter was put up. I like the emotional tension in this story, and how the characters grow and learn.

Gilmore Girls: Whatever our souls are made of, by dollsome.
Summary: Edward Cullen tries to woo Rory. Paris does not approve.
Reccer's Notes: This is awesome, I love Paris' voice and Rory is so very much Rory. Love Edward terrible attempt at wooing and how neither Paris nor Rory would have that. I had so much fun reading this story.

Babylon 5: The Quiet Ones, by Amatara.
Summary: The life and death of Regent Virini - one of the quiet ones history is bound to forget.
Reccer's Notes: This is such a wonderful character study. The background Amatara made up for Virini makes so much sense, it becomes my headcanon. I'd love to read more about him.

Harry Potter: No Charity, by fluffyllama.
Summary: Rita sets out on a tough assignment – to interview Miss Marjorie Dursley.
Reccer's Notes: This is a really interesting take on Rita Skeeter, and on Marge Dursley. I don't usually like Rita Skeeter, and this story made me feel sympathy for her, and it left me with the hope that it may yet work out for her.

Famous Five: frenetic, by minarchy.
Summary: Anne was always the only girl.
Reccer's Notes: As a child I've always loved George the most, though I've feared to be more Anne than George.
This is a wonderful view on Anne, and the currents underneath her skin that I couldn't see in Blyton's work when I was a child myself.

Harry Potter: All Made Up of Darkness and Light, by realmer06.
Summary: It isn't until their seventh year that they realize how much they have in common. Leader, quitter, teacher, liar, protector, failure -- some sides of people don't come through until they're put through the worst.
Reccer's Notes: This is an interesting look at the happenings at Hogwarts during the seventh book. I really like this Hannah and Neville. They really come alive here, and I love how I emphazise with.

Harry Potter: The Thing About Traveling, by tetleythesecond.
Summary: Minerva McGonagall goes on a trip to the tropics, though she couldn't possibly tell you why. Well, that is, until our intrepid lady traveller finds out that there is more to discover on a journey than what the bloody Baedeker tells you.
Reccer's Notes: I love this story. Love this grown-up, mature Hermione, how she lived her life, and grew, and made her own path through the world. Love how Minerva learns to see her a-new. And the lovely progression of their relationship.

Narnia: Mansuetus Gentilis Regina, by tiabolt.
Summary: Becoming Gentle is an uphill battle she didn’t expect. How does one become Gentle in Narnia when one does not even know what it means? A story of negotiations, politics, and midnight escapades in the Golden Age as Queen Susan learns to be Gentle.
Reccer's Notes: This is a great look on Susan, and how she struggles with the expectations of those meeting her, and of the expectations she thinks she has to meet. In the end her by-name "The Gentle" doesn't define her as much as she defines it.

Summary: Hornblower introduces his captain to his wife. (A missing chapter from the beginning of Commodore Hornblower.)
Reccer's Notes: This is wonderful. It's been ages since I've read any of the books, but this is Hornblower how I remember him.
The characters' interaction is great and realistic, and I love Lady Barbara, she's great.

Daddy-Long-Legs: What He Was Thinking, by Beatrice_Otter.
Summary: Jervis Pendleton, in his own thoughts.
Reccer's Notes: This is a great story. Pendleton's thoughts are realistic and in-character. I love how it all makes sense.
And I'm grateful that it's a lot less skeevy than it could have been.
