Land of Regrets and Second Chances by messageredacted (R)
Your wriggling day is in three days, and while you normally celebrate this event with the apathy it deserves, this particular sweep is different. That’s because it will be your eighth sweep, and it happens to coincide with the arrival of the imperial drones. This is a milestone that every troll looks forward to with a heady combination of excitement and terror. For most trolls, when they reach their eighth sweep, they become adults. Not you. When you reach your eighth sweep, you will die.

Had We But World Enough by Smuttysmutwriter (R)
Loki and Thor have been married since they were little and they grew up sharing a palace wing. The boys never shared a bed because Odin and Frigga wanted to make sure nothing inappropriate could happen while they were still young. They also used to get chaperoned a lot so that there could be no hanky panky. Everyone assumes that Loki and Thor’s marriage has progressed to include sex now that they’re adults and if the maids notice that there are still two beds being used in the princes’ wing, they know better than to gossip about it. Loki and Thor both desperately want to move their relationship to the next level. It’s just really awkward to change up a centuries old platonic relationship with your spouse. Neither of them ever had a change to figure out this romance stuff naturally and neither of them wants to pressure the other. It all comes to a head when the boys take a trip to another realm and are given a single room when their hosts hears that they’re married.

Ten years after ROTS, tormenting nightmares of his unborn child drive Darth Vader to extraordinary measures with unexpectedly drastic consequences. Clearly, experience has taught Darth Vader nothing...

It's sort of Star Wars Remixed--you'll find many of the same themes, events, characters, and so on, put together in different and hopefully creative ways. Features Luke, Vader, Han, and Leia, with nearly everyone else jumping in along the way: the Lars, Obi-Wan, Lando Calrissian, Wedge Antilles, Bail and Breha Organa, Yoda, Boba Fett, the Emperor, Captain Piett, Artoo, Threepio, Ferus Olin, and so on, with cameos from Grand Admiral Thrawn, Mara Jade, Admiral Ozzel, Jan Dodonna, and any number of others, not to mention a handful of original characters. AU, obviously. My first fic and my longest.

[In the sequel,] Charles and Erik, unintentional co-rulers of the newly-formed Independent Sanctuary of Genosha, have a multi-national navy surrounding their island. Charles takes on the UN, leaving Erik to take on fatherhood and a brand new kind of responsibility, and together, they take on the first true enemy of Genosha.

McGarrett wants to help the fiery little number behind the lens, but he can't because his secret life as a navy SEAL has him deep undercover.

Post-“Gift” epic. Giles has a moment of clarity, but it’s too late. How he deals with Buffy’s death and how she comes back to him.

The Slayer is dead.

She leaves behind her friends, her sister, and her Watcher.

He should not be so surprised. He has read the Watchers’ Diaries, whose pages all end so abruptly. He has been raised and guided towards this destiny since the age of ten. And so he should have known that this moment was inevitable.

But she was not like the others. And in the end, she did not die like the others. Not cut down by her foe in battle, his Slayer sacrificed herself to save her sister and the world. And he is left alone, empty, a lifetime’s purpose lying dead atop the rubble before him.

But there is another who can understand his pain, a dark power who will not let this Slayer rest in her grave. And though he believes he has already lost everything with her death, he will learn that he still has more to lose…

Jaws of the Jaguar by Scribe Mozzell (NC-17)
Once again the Impossible Mission force moves into action, this time to stop a Columbian drug lord from realizing his ambition to expand his empire by going into partnership with an international drug runner.

I:M agent Ethan Hunt is assigned the daunting task of infiltrating Olivero de la Montana's stronghold in the guise of Connor Galbraith, a tough Irish drug runner. He needs an operative to act the role of Galbraith's constant companion, and lover, Daniel Ballard. Special Agent Fox Mulder, a near twin of the decadent young man, is recruited.

During the course of the mission, Mulder learns something about himself, and the two agents come to realize that Connor and Daniel may not be entirely irredeemable...

Unexpected Plot Twist by ethrosdemon (NC-17)
Eames asks Arthur to leave retirement post-film to fight a human trafficking ring. In the aftermath of their op, they get engaged and go on the talk-show circuit as a cover (as Arthur says: "You know what'll happen if we popped up in the media married. This is a big story right now in the States, you know that. We'd be untouchable by a gang of Ukrainian sex traffickers with CNN is sitting on the lawn.") and actually fall in love in the process, meanwhile avoiding assassins.

The Chosen and Defined Verse by language_escapes (NC-17)
Chosen and Defined is first and foremost about a close-knit community of girls that are all in their own way different. The only thing that connects them is that they went to the same school, at the same time. The fic delves deeply into the character’s background, into their families, into their reasons for becoming who they are. Some of them become spies after leaving St. Trinian’s, some of them stay-at-home-moms, and again others become teachers at the very same school that they attendet, but the one thing that is true for each and every one of them is that they always stay St. Trinian’s girls.

Time Enough And Space by ashinae and linden_jay (PG-13)
In this wonderful crossover, River isn't Simon's sister. She's a Time Lady whose mind was shattered when she used a Chameleon Arch (for those less familiar with Who-canon, a Chameleon Arch is part of a process for completely changing a Time Lord's genetic make-up, generally used for cross-species transformation) to hide herself away from the Time War.

There's no help in sight for her -- until the Doctor and Donna Noble enter a little shop on the edge of the System and find themselves confronted with ex-Time Lady and her companion and in true Doctor-like fashion set out to help them.

Near Miss by beachkid / binz and shiplizard (NC-17)
Three years ago, Tony Vargassi died and left his flourishing criminal empire to his son Marco. Gang violence is rife in the streets, but Harry Dresden's concluded, reluctantly, that it isn't his kind of problem. He's about to find out that the real power behind Chicago's throne is a lot worse then a spoiled mobster's son -- and maybe more than he can handle.

John 'Johnny' Marcone is a mechanic with a bad limp and a bad history with Vargassi. He doesn't want to get back into the business of the Business; he barely escaped with his life before. But in Harry Dresden he sees enough raw power to save the city he loves. Will he risk it all to back his crazy friend against the powers that be?

And can Harry and his car survive what Chicago has in store for him, even with a full-time mechanic?
