There May Be Some Collateral Damage - Chapter 1 - metisket - Bleach, Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Ichigo’s been ordered to go undercover at a magic school to bodyguard a kid named Harry Potter, and this would be fine, except that he’s about as good at bodyguarding as he is at magic. And he considers it a good day, magic-wise, if he hasn’t set anything on fire.

|| I clicked on this thinking, "No way. NO WAY." but this was delightful and fun and really INTERESTING, the way watching a car crash that also takes out half a city block would be interesting. If somehow all the people in that city block were also evil.

Anyway, a really wonderful take on what Ichigo would do to the HP universe, and how his presence would change things. His outsider perspective is really aces.

Play It Again - Chapter 1 - metisket - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
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.)”

|| As good as all the saves on Pinboard are making it seem--long, plotty, interesting. The alternate-universe characters are all interesting recasts of the show-universe, and it deals with that Stiles--and really anyone in the show--are probably dealing with extensive mental issues (here PTSD, among others). This Stiles is perhaps a bit too clever? And exceedingly good at manipulating others. But I've seen all of two episodes of the show, what do I know.

metisket: beautiful ideas
So it cracks me up that the entire plot is pretty much Mike Stamford’s fault, and yet he manages to completely dodge the fallout. SIR, I SALUTE YOU.

Equally, it cracks me up that ACD Mike Stamford spent a lot of time making it clear to John that this, this living with Sherlock thing? WAS NOT HIS IDEA. Whereas modern Mike Stamford seems to find it all hilarious.

In conclusion: Mike Stamford fic, because I admire the man’s style.

This is hilarious and delightful, and absolutely an ode to Mike Stamford's style.

Cause for Concern
"Havoc had been looking forward to meeting the Elric brothers, but he’d been looking forward to it while thinking he’d have the whole office as a buffer. He hadn’t thought he’d have them all to himself in a car for half an hour in traffic." Oh. My god. Oh my god. The brother-banter in this is perfect, Havoc is hilarious, and the tone shift at the end makes a funny character story into a piece that CAPTURES and EMBODIES the FMA relationships in a way that can't be expressed except by itself. !! :) So much love.

Sand Castle
"If Cross had understood, when he was asked to guard the Fourteenth’s vessel, that what he was really being asked to do was raise some broken little kid, he would have said fuck no." Excellent, excellent DGM backstory--metisket captures the bitchiness, arrogance, & care of both Allen and Cross, and the horrific but cracky tone of the manga. Honestly delightful.
