The Social Network: Disentanglement by rageprufrock
Summary: After the abject shitshow of Palo Alto, Eduardo's plans are to stop proving his father right about all his life decisions, shut up, graduate, and keep abusing the slow-healing wound from Mark's knife in the back until all the scar tissue is numb from dead nerve endings.
Reccer's Notes: I don't actually know if rageprufrock has ever worked in investment banking, but the amount and vividness of detail in this fic is breathtaking. The sections about Goldman Sachs really feel like tagging along to work with an analyst to watch him and his coworkers get abused by their soulless employer while the US economy collapses around them. If you're hesitating because of the original characters, let me assure you that you will get so attached to these nerds and it is so satisfying to see them form an unconventional little family (and make tons of money by being very smart). The epistolary and outsider POV tags are included because there's a industry magazine feature on Eduardo's company threaded throughout the story and it is honestly my favorite part -- it really reads like something out of the Wall Street Journal, and it ties the whole story together perfectly.

The X-Files: Failure to Die by Kel
Summary: Set during Season Four. Told from the POV of a veteran FBI agent working with other agents whom you might recognize.

An undercover assignment lands Agent Jerry Luskin and his colleagues in a "cursed" hospital. Can Dr. Scully handle an emergency without calling for the paramedics? Just watch.
Reccer's Notes: I'm a retired RN. This means I've spent a lot of time complaining to anyone who would listen about how inaccurately the media in general, and The X-Files in particular, portrays hospitals, nurses, and physicians. Special Agent "I'm a medical doctor" Scully was no exception to that rule, in episodes, and in fic, to my dismay. However, very occasionally I'd run into a fic writer whose expertise in all things medical exceeded my own. "Aha!" I thought to myself when I first read "Failure to Die." "This Kel person didn't just research university hospitals--she works in one!"

When a writer puts their characters and story in a familiar setting, it's easy to fall into a trap. You can include so much detail that the reader gets impatient. Kel's genius move, the one that keeps "Failure to Die" from bogging down in medical minutia and unnecessary explanations, is her POV character, Special Agent Jerry Luskin. The reader only knows what Jerry knows, and therefore needs only to understand what he understands. In this fic, along with Mulder and Scully, Agent Luskin is undercover, playing a version of himself: a retired FBI agent who takes a job as head of security at the university hospital in his hometown. If you enjoy Jerry's dry wit, he plays a supporting role in "Basketball Therapy," and takes point again in "The Beginner's Guide to Tightrope Walking," my favorite fic by my favorite X-Files writer.

In short, Kel's "Failure to Die" is a compelling casefic, with an original x-file at its center, and plenty of classic Mulder/Scully interaction to enjoy.

Star Trek: T'Kay Tales by LJC
Summary: From The Terran Coyote to The Klingon K'Ortar: Tricksters of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants (Revised Expanded 4th Edition).
Reccer's Notes: In the 80s and 90s, there was a string of REALLY GREAT Star Trek: The Original Series novels published. Because Star Trek was by that time such a cultural juggernaut, there were a LOT of really talented writers just itching for the chance to write Star Trek novels. And a surprising amount of what was in those books later became canon (including Sulu and Uhura's first names). (If you're interested, I can give you a list of all the awesome ones you should totally read.)

One such awesome work was Uhura's Song, in which information provided by Uhura sends the Enterprise out on an adventure, which happens to involve a prolonged first contact involving lots of talk about folklore, and specifically trickster-figures, and Spock notes that the trickster figure on Vulcan is called T'Kay. ljc took that and wrote a really interesting ficlet, both exploring what T'Kay folklore might be like, and also what non-Vulcan academics might make of it. You don't have to know anything about the novel to enjoy this fic.

Harry Potter: Contemporary Magical Innovations, by H. Granger by kaiz
Summary: The difference between History and What Really Happened.
Reccer's Notes: As with all the entries for this round, a true blast from the past! Over a decade after my first read-through, I have some very strong ethical concerns about the actual magical innovation that forms the backbone of the plot, but other than that it's still a thoroughly enjoyable read, with a slightly crack-y sense of humor that characterizes a lot of the great mid-series HP fics. (I'm not sure when exactly Contemporary Magical Innovations was first posted but the presumed canon backstory seems to diverge around Order of the Phoenix or thereabouts.) The sections of academic prose explaining the historical perspective on what is happening throughout the fic are a lot of fun, and let the story end on just the right note!

Batman: The Next Best Thing to Normal
Summary: Everyone thinks Jason has two mommies.
Reccer's Notes: In the early 2000s there was a good-sized DC comics-and-cartoons fic-writing fandom, and Merlin Missy was one of my favorite authors. This fic takes Harley and Poison Ivy, expands their implied relationship, and showcases it through the eyes of a child. If you don't like kidfic, take a chance on this, because it is not sappy or sentimental. It's about things unsaid, and what it means to live life outside the system.

Canon note: you can probably read this without knowing the specifics of BtAS and BB. However, just in case: in Return of the Joker we learn that Joker kidnapped Tim Drake for long enough to brainwash him. Batman and Batgirl eventually found him, and in the ensuing fight Tim shoots and kills the Joker.

Stargate SG-1: Almost A Statesman, by Katie M.
Summary: Rya'c, Teal'c's elder son, was intimately involved with the Jaffa rebellion from his mid-teens onward. Here, in a brief English-language memoir written in response to a graduate student's query in the early 2020s, he sets down his memories of his father during late 2003 and early 2004. While excerpts were used in the resulting thesis (Caron, A. (2022) The Price of Freedom: Politics of the Jaffa Rebellion, 1997-2007. Ph.D Thesis, University of Wisconsin, 422 pp.) this represents the full text's first publication.
Reccer's Notes: This is quite thoroughly AU (besides the fact that the author wrote it as an AU, it was written towards the middle of the show's run before the Orii were even dreamed of). I love the Jaffa worldbuilding, and the perspective on Ry'ac and Teal'c's relationship, and the relationship of Teal'c and the Free Jaffa.  pairing:(gen).no.pairing  character:teal'c  character:ry'ac  length:01.000-5.000.words  creator:katie_m  theme:old.fandoms  theme:outsider.pov  theme:kidfic  theme:kidfic:next.gen  theme:future.fic  theme:interspecies.stories  theme:family  theme:characters.of.color  theme:au  reccer:beatrice_otter

Figure Skating RPF: The Advancement of Learning by mosca
Summary: Twenty-five things Galina knows about her students.
Reccer's Notes: I've read and loved all of mosca's Ben/Johnny fics, but this is the story that sticks in my mind the most. There are so many amazing lines stuffed into under 3000 words! And the portrayal of Johnny's friendship with Stephane absolutely warms my heart. I will never in this life or the next know as much about figure skating as mosca does, but her stories are still really accessible and enjoyable without getting all the references.

TMFU: Paint. There lies salvation by ScribeofArda
Summary: Art defines humanity, and humans never want to be alone, even if the only other person accompanying them is themselves staring back from their canvas.

The Cortauld Institute, London, is full of the brightest art students in the country. Still, they will take any distraction from the impending doom of finals that they can get. The new Modernism professor, Solo, is more than easy on the eyes, but what makes it even better is the elusive husband that none of them ever see. The only proof is the ring on Solo's finger, and the few stories they manage to get him to tell. It can only get more interesting from there.

Napoleon just wants a quiet life to enjoy his retirement from UNCLE, teaching art history at university and dabbling in a few heists on the side when Gaby sends them his way. There's been a wedding ring on his finger for years now, a matching one on Illya's, and all he wants to do is live out his life with the man he loves. But things are never as simple as that, and neither of them have been left unharmed by the games they had to play.

They never really leave the game. But there are worse things than to fade into obscurity, leaving only the art behind.
Reccer's Notes: This fic is from the POV of an original character who is Napoleon's art student. It's a very fun read as she uncovers the truth about her professor and his mysterious husband.

jason todd is alive and faked his death so he could become robin: a conspiracy theory thread

Batfam conspiracy theories meet social media.
Reccer's Notes: Batman has some truly excellent fake-social media fic (if you've never read BRUCE WAYNE BANNED FROM WALMART [snapchat compilation], Bad Publicity, or Gotham's Favorite Son, do yourself a favor and set aside a few minutes to marvel at what the Gotham side of tumblr would really be like) but this one is a hidden jewel. (Plus, it's mobile- and screenreader-friendly, which is hard to find in this genre.) There would be so many conspiracy theories about the Batfam! And Bruce would 100% take Cass to Pride!

Prince of Tennis/Petshop of Horrors: Wild by Branch
Summary: While visiting the US, some of the tennis boys come across an unusual pet shop. This evolves, as such things do, into some strange situations for a few of them.
Reccer's Notes: Like most of [ profile] Branch's Tenipuri fic, this is a very introspective piece, where more is thought than said and more is said than done. In this case the style is a lovely complement to the doubled outsider POV -- Count D observing how Tezuka interacts with his teammates while the Seigaku boys explore D's petshop. I particularly enjoyed Tezuka in this fic; he's such a black box in canon but the interpretation of him as quietly but intensely possessive of his team makes perfect sense.  pairing:(gen).no.pairing  character:echizen.ryouma  character:tezuka.kunimitsu  character:count.d  length:05.000-10.000.words  creator:branch  theme:amnesty  theme:crossovers&fusions  theme:families.of.choice  theme:mythical.creatures  theme:mythical.creatures:other  theme:outsider.pov  theme:secret.identity.reveal  reccer:meretricula

Summary: In the words of quiet_tiger, "If Clark Kent's throwing up, it's probably not just the flu."
Reccer's Notes: Clark gets sick and can't stop throwing up, so Lex takes him to House to find out what's wrong. The story is told mostly from the POV of the House team as they try and diagnose (and treat) an alien for the first time, all the while with Lex hovering over their shoulders with threats and bribes. This is a really entertaining story, and you don't need much knowledge of either fandom to enjoy it.

Hannibal: When the Devil Smiles Back by GoldenUsagi
Summary: Four years after his escape, Hannibal Lecter is once again imprisoned at the hospital in Baltimore. He's the same as ever, except that he refuses to discuss Will Graham, who there hasn't been a trace of in years. When the Buffalo Bill killings start, FBI trainee Clarice Starling is sent to interview him, and Hannibal has his interest piqued.

But it’s not for reasons anyone would suspect, and as usual, his motivations are all about Will. A remix of Silence of the Lambs, where Clarice finds herself occupied not only with catching Buffalo Bill, but with unraveling the mystery of what exactly happened to Will Graham. And Hannibal knows more than he’s letting on about both.
Reccer's Notes: I love the characterization in this fic, and it has the same odd, dissociated tone as the Silence of the Lambs film.

One Piece: The Red Coast by Maldoror_Chant
The plan was simple, as good a plan as a clan of shipwreckers and bounty-hunters could ever come up with. Capture one of the weaker Straw Hats, the ones without bounties, and make them beg for mercy until the stronger ones surrendered. Nothing can possibly go wrong with such an easy, straightforward scheme. Time to make some money!
Reccer's Notes:
I love some good outsiders point of view, and the sadly outmatched crew of The Red Coast delivers perfectly... and is made even funnier by the fact that they don't know they are outmatched. The writing is sharp and playful and the strength and special brand of craziness of the Strawhats shine through, even when their evaluations by the villains are laughingly off target.

The X-Files: "Certitude" by Justin Glasser
Summary: Spoilers through "Fight the Future." Mulder and Scully are taken off the ice, but they wouldn't call it being rescued.
Reccer's Notes: "The X-Files: Fight the Future" is about two people who will literally go to the ends of the earth to save one another. For all its virtues, the film left a huge plot hole: what exactly did happen after they escaped from the alien ship? How did they get from Antarctica to Washington DC and what happened in between? "Certitude" tells that story so well, I've probably reread it a half dozen times with pleasure, and recced it, well, everywhere but here.

Besides an absolutely riveting plot, Glasser give us a Mulder-and-Scully who come as close to the characters on screen as any writer before or since. There are three POV characters in the fic: Mulder, Scully and a brilliantly realized OC, Captain Neill, whose assignment is to observe Mulder and Scully and record everything he sees. The title and the chapter headings are from Matthew Arnold's poem, "Dover Beach."

Harry Potter: This Is An Essay, by Dee Laundry
Summary: Margaret would rather write the same thing a hundred times.
Reccer's Notes: I know what you are thinking: OFC! Harry Potter! Stay away! But you would be wrong. This is not some adolescent's first try at writing, full of blatant self-inserts and purple prose. This is, in fact, a very nuanced, understated look at an unexpected corner of the Potterverse. Margaret, the OFC, has autism (although the Wizarding World's understanding of mental health and developmental disorders isn't good enough to make that diagnosis). This is life at Hogwarts, from her perspective. As someone with Aspergers, with an autistic brother, this author has done a great job of capturing Margaret's perception, and doing it in an engaging and thoughtful way.

As she watches Blair cleaning his gun, and then later how he and Jim are together, she's flooded with memories of Blair growing up, and reflects on the path that led him to his current life.
Reccer's Notes: Brighid's stories are so rich emotionally and she uses language beautifully. If you haven't read her stuff, you should immerse yourself. Enjoy.

The Sentinel: Third Party by Sis
Summary: The story begins in a staff meeting where Cassie is fantasizing about Jim, and wondering why Blair is still welcome at MC after his dissertation press conference.
Reccer's Notes: This is for the handful of people out there who don't hate Cassie. I found her annoying but ultimately sympathetic. Having to scuttle your dreams because you have health problems seems pretty unfair. Sis doesn't like or dislike Cassie; she just writes her with credible thoughts and reactions. Enjoy.

Star Wars: the Vader Identity Controversy & SECOND CORUSCANT REPUBLIC by 4thofeleven
Summary: Excerpts from Encyclopaedia Galactica, tenth edition
Reccer's Notes: So what kinds of evidence would there actually be for historians to put together a report on Vader's identity and the Empire and the old Jedi Order and the formation of the New Republic? Not much, given how enthusiastic Palpatine was about destroying the Jedi and the fact that the Jedi and the Rebellion were trying to stay covert. And, let's face it, the truth as shown in the movies is pretty improbable without the kind of evidence to back it up that simply wouldn't exist any more. These two ficlets are a great look at the kinds of theories that historians have put together many centuries later, long after the questions are safely academic.
...the Order of Skywalker Knights believe that their founder, Luke Skywalker, was the son of Anakin, and it was the relationship between the two that allowed the younger Skywalker to survive his encounter with Darth Vader during the First Battle of Endor. However, as many historians have pointed out, this only serves as evidence to support the theory that Vader was Luke’s father; it does nothing to prove that Anakin and Vader were one and the same. As the Jedi of the late Republic were traditionally celibate, most mainstream historians consider Luke Skywalker’s claims to be dubious at best...

Marvel: My Brother, the Hero by Odsbodkins
Summary: Becca Barnes is eight years old, and her big brother can do no wrong. The events of the two Captain America movies, from the perspective of one of the sisters Bucky leaves behind.
Reccer's Notes: Bucky's little sister Becca is a wonderful narrator -- both as the little spitfire who idolizes her big brother at the beginning of the story, and the elderly "minor Twitter celebrity" who welcomes Steve and Bucky back home at the end.

Marvel: The man on the bridge by boopboop
Summary: Steve Rogers turning up at Tony's door in the middle of the night might be a bit out of character, but it's not completely out of the realm of possibility. Stranger things have happened.

Steve Rogers turning up at Tony's door with an amnesiac assassin - who may or may not have some of Tony's personally designed hardware attached where his arm should be - well that's just far too interesting to turn away, even if Tony is trying to avoid all things S.H.I.E.L.D these days.
Reccer's Notes: Exxxxcellent outsider POV. I really do think Tony should narrate every Marvel fic out there.

Harry Potter: Family Therapy by gemmadw
Summary: Before there was Hogwarts for Harry, there was the Dursley family with two children, one of whom had no friends, hobbies, or even much of a life. Thanks to the generosity of the British Public Health system, the family was bound to be referred for therapy.... Beware of broken or falling glass! And yes, the author is actually a psychologist.
Reccer's Notes: This epistolary fic is written in the form of therapist's session notes and it's about kid!Harry getting the help he needed and a professional finally dealing with the Dursleys. There are a lot of abbreviations (a key is provided at the beginning) and the notes are written in a dry professional manner so it may not be to everyone's liking, but I thought it was a good read and very well written - the author's professional experience in the same field as the POV character really makes this fic special.

Dangerous Liaisons: Deuxieme Appendice by Amanuensis
Summary: An additional collection of letters reveals that the conquests of the Vicomte de Valmont were not confined to the ladies of the controversy.
Reccer's Notes: This fic seamlessly integrates the possibility that Danceny and Valmont had their own liaisons. It offers the perspective of a male friend of Danceny's as he secretly courts Cecile--and is taught to in turn, along with other lessons--and learns of others' treachery.

Summary: The Complacency of the Learned fandom isn't big enough for both of them, and neither of them is going to be the one that flounces first.
Reccer's Notes: This fic is astounding, and everything a fandom!AU should be. It's written as a wank_report writeup for the Complacency of the Learned fandom, in which Rose and Calliope are two equally large (and equally wanky) BNFS whose passion for the canon is matched only by their passion(ate hatred) for each other.

Summary: "When Miranda Hunter's Muggleborn nephew receives his first Hogwarts letter, Albus Dumbledore offers Miranda the Muggle Studies position. BNW explores how a Muggle might view and adjust to life in the Wizarding World."
Reccer's Notes: This is one of my favourite Harry Potter fics overall, let alone my favourite OFC fic. It's well written and engaging, and as it was written before Order of the Phoenix it takes off in a completely different but plausible direction. It mostly focuses on Miranda and her nephew, and puts them at Hogwarts during Goblet of Fire while still managing to stay canon-compliant. Snape is not sugarcoated and Miranda is no Mary Sue, and their romance, once it gets going, really works. The other characters are all beliavable and in the case of canon characters true to themselves.

Stargate: Atlantis: Written by the Victors, by Speranza

Caroll, Franklin R. Atlantis Revisited. New York and London, Routledge, 2011.
Chapman, Denise. Several Kinds of Genius: The Life of Rodney McKay. NY: Harper Perennial, 2015.
Croft, Rosalind. City of Spires: A Memoir. Toronto: The Mercury Press, 2009.
Dugan, Paul. A Political History of Atlantis. Oxford: OUP, 2012.

Reccer's Notes: I've found this round proof that there aren't many Atlantis fans reccing, because there are quite a lot of SGA Harlequin AUs which feature marriages of convenience of one kind or another. This isn't one of those.

This is one of the true classics of SGA fandom. It's an AU wherein the SGC decided to recall Atlantis--the whole city--to Earth, and John and Rodney refused. They led a mutiny, sent back everyone to Earth who wanted to go home, and set up a new society in Pegasus, throwing open the doors of Atlantis and establishing themselves as a leader in trade and taking the fight against the Wraith to a whole new level. John and Rodney are lovers, but John marries Teyla for political reasons. But note the title: it's taken from the old saying "history is written by the victors." Most of the story is told from the point of view of historians arguing about what really happened. It's fascinating to piece together the different interpretations and the scenes we're given.

(If you think that a collection of excerpts from fake history books would be dull or dry, you are completely wrong. Academics often get into bitch-fights of epic proportions over interpretations, and so besides the puzzle of piecing together what really happened, you get to watch the infighting of the historians.)

Reccer's Notes: This is a lovely post-CotW fic in which part of the fun is figuring out the details of the ways Ray & Fraser's relationship has evolved through the eyes of the Mountie who calls them in to assist her on an apparent murder case. It's a wonderful glimpse.

As Rogers makes the rounds, talking to other MC detectives, we learn that each of them also has an opinion about Jim and Blair and their relationship status.

In fact, from the first time she visited she was sure they were on the verge of becoming lovers, but each time she visited she found that they were not. Now she realizes that they might need a little push shove in the right direction. Will her interference this time be for the good?

Summary: Jim and Blair are captured by a reclusive religious group, who accuse them of being homosexuals, a great sin in their estimation. While the elders are trying to decide their fate, Jim is convinced that they will be killed because they've seen the group's compound, not because of the initial charges. Watching it all is our narrator, who is trying to make sense of these "outlanders" while also giving us an insider's POV of the society she's a part of.
Reccer's Notes: Legion is one of the few authors who has been writing in the fandom while the show was still originally broadcasting and has continued through to the present. Her stories are many and varied. Again, this is a story I read early on when I discovered TS fanfic. Enjoy.

The X-Files: Hollow Day by Kel
Summary: October 1973. Think Watergate. Think oil embargo. Think Samantha.
Reccer's Notes:
I've been wanting to rec this fic for years. It's one of the reasons I voted for outsider POV. I must warn you: this is not the usual, cheery, feel-good holiday story, nor is it the sort of story we've come to expect from Kel, i.e. humorous. This story is sad, with a side order of sinister, which only proves how versatile a writer she is.

There are not many fanfic writers who can create such believable, compelling original characters. Her narrator, now an adult with children of her own, recalls a traumatic day she spent at the Mulder's, specifically the Thanksgiving immediately following Samantha's abduction.
Most of the gentry on the Vineyard were summer people, but there was one rich family that lived there year-round. The Mulders. They weren't exactly Kennedys or anything, but you could tell they were loaded. I'm sure they were the only people on Martha's Vineyard with a summer house someplace else. Mrs. Mulder was always redecorating. My dad was a house painter, which meant he was always over there painting.

I didn't mind that my dad painted the house, or even that he fixed the drips and put up the storm windows. But I burned with resentment because every year my mom would spend Thanksgiving over at the Mulders', cleaning and serving and doing all kinds of things that she should have been doing for us, and that the Mulders should have been doing for themselves.

My freshman year at UMass, when my mom picked me up at the ferry the day before Thanksgiving, that was the first thing I said to her.

"I *hope* you're not planning to spend my visit working for the Mulders."

"Oh, my God, Linda, you haven't heard!" my mother said. "Something terrible happened last night. Samantha was kidnapped."

Captain America/MCU: Medvezhonok by lanyon
Summary: The Winter Soldier is on the run and no one is more surprised than he is by the fact that he is accompanied by a little boy who seems convinced that he is his father:

“What’s that, Papa?”

Papa flinches and looks at Stefan. “It’s called a Kalashnikov,” he says, in a strange voice. “You’re not to touch it, okay?”
Reccer's Notes: Nominally a Bucky/Steve and Bucky/Darcy story, but really a fic about the Winter Soldier, his love for his lab-hatched son and discovery of himself. The story is told from the viewpoint of that son, and so is limited to what a young child would know and understand, but somehow never feels like the reader is missing any important part of the tale. Stephan's narration ends up being a refreshing counterpoint to the angst inherent in the Winter Soldier's story, because of his faith in his papa.

(Written well before Captain America 2, so no spoilers for that film. Don't spoil me, either!)

The Sentinel: In the Eye of the Beholder by Earth2Skye
Summary: We follow Jim and Blair, who are working on a case that has stalled. It may or may not be related to a crash when they were rammed by another car, with Blair getting the worst of it. Through the eyes of a PD parking lot guard, a disgruntled detective who was disciplined for mishandling a case, Henri Brown, Megan Connor, a clerk in Records, Joel Taggert, Simon, and a Burglary detective who is also working the case, we watch as Blair limps all the way to Major Crime because he's sure he can crack the case.
Reccer's Notes: it's hard enough to write believably from one POV, especially using an original character who you are building from scratch. To do so with a handful of them, plus canon characters, and make them all sound different really shows the talent of the writer. Originally written for Sentinel Secrets. Enjoy.

The Sentinel: I Want To Be In Love by Gryphon
Summary: This time, the outsider is a recent divorcee who's moved to Cascade to get a new start. Being an artist, she was happy to find a loft apartment, which happens to be in Jim and Blair's neighborhood. She first spots Jim as they are both jogging in the local park, and they strike up a nodding acquaintance. She keeps her eye on him, speculating, until she sees Jim and Blair together. When they kiss, right there in public, she's amazed and decides to find out more about the couple.
Reccer's Notes: This is just a sweet little story, written for a challenge. It's easy to relate to the observations and feelings of this unnamed woman, and to wish her well. This was originally published under the pseud "Griffon". Enjoy.

The Sentinel: Bearing Witness by Kim Gasper aka mickeym
Summary: In this story, we meet Emily Bryant, or at least that's her name for now. She's about to enter the Witness Protection Program and needs to be protected by the Cascade PD for one day until the Feds can send their own people to take her. Instead of a safe house, Jim and Blair bring her to the loft, since they're part of her protection detail. She observes them, trying to figure out whether they are a couple of not. Before she can confirm one way or another, she falls asleep in Blair's bed (so that means they're not, right?) But then she wakes up, and gets an eyeful of proof.
Reccer's Notes: I'm not sure I'd buy that Jim and Blair couldn't keep their hands off each other for one day, but the point of the story is not necessarily to make sense. When we read explicit stories, we "see" the guys doing all kinds of things to each other. But, because it's through an outsider's POV, this feels different; sort of like you're a voyeur, as Emily is, instead of an invited guest. Enjoy.

Superman: Letters from a Smallville school nurse by Russel Saunders
Summary: I hope you’re as excited by the new school year as I am. We’re so glad to have little Clark back at Smallville Elementary! I’m sure he’s going to love second grade.
Reccer's Notes: This is adorable. That's all I can say.

The Sentinel: Through Another's Eyes by Rimilod
Summary: We get to see Blair (and hear about Jim) as Janice, a Rainier office manager, is orienting her temporary replacement, Kirsten. It's obvious that Kirstin is taken in by Blair's good looks and playful manner. But he endears himself to her further as Janice explains who he is, as well as by what he does when an emergency situation comes up.
Reccer's Notes: I like this one because it's set entirely at the university where we see Blair in his element. Janice is a recurring character in Rimilod's stories. Enjoy

The Sentinel: Outside Looking In by DL Witherspoon
Summary: Again, this is the POV of a cop; in this case a detective that's transferred in from Spokane and is partnered with Henri (yikes! Where's Rafe?) He's heard a lot about Jim and Blair, but nothing really prepares him for his first meeting--or their first case together.
Reccer's Notes: This was written way back in 1998 and Witherspoon's stories can only be found on her website, so they are easy to overlook. Enjoy.

The Sentinel: Knowing the Man by Ankhmutes
Summary: This POV is from a uniform cop who worked with Jim before Jim became a detective and has kept in touch over the years. He reflects on Jim's past and the present, which includes the events in TSbyBS and its aftermath.
Reccer's Notes: More often than not, when we get a uniform cop's POV, it's someone who doesn't know anyone in Major Crime and is making assumptions. This is a nice change of pace. Originally posted at 852 under the pseud Angie T. Enjoy.

Atlantis: Old Soldiers, by Sholio
Summary: The old guy in Room 30B was about the most disagreeable human being that the nurses had ever met. But he did get visitors including a retired Air Force Colonel.
Reccer's Notes: Rodney's in a nursing home. And, of course, his naturally sweet disposition wins through (not). This is from the point of view of one of the aides working in the home, and it does a really good job of capturing what Rodney might be like as an old man, and of course leaving the reader trying to figure out what happened to everyone on Atlantis from the hints that the narrator doesn't notice. Really well done.

Stargate: Atlantis: The New Frontier by Sarah T
Summary: Six years after the end of the war, there are still battles to be fought.
Reccer's Notes: This is kind of a weird story. It's a futurefic AU, and sort of apocalypse, sort of a Western. Anyway, John Sheppard is wandering around Pegasus, and one day he rides into town on this little planet. This is the story of what happens next. It's oddly appropriate, how well John Sheppard fits into the Western trope of stranger-rides-into-town.

Summary: I like to think I serve a better class of quick food than the ten thousand other similar espablishments in Tokyo. I rather have to, really-- I have a special clientele.

The X-Files: Strangers and the Strange Dead by Kipler
Summary: In which dead bodies and shivering people disturb the hilltown of Bradenton, and our young, orphaned narrator serves hot beverages to the investigating agents even as she ponders the peculiar, elusive nature of their relationship.
Reccer's Notes:
This story pretty much defines outside POV fic for me. It's also one of the strongest stories written for the fandom, and a personal favorite. We've discussed it twice at xf_book_club.

The X-Files: Other People by Pares
Summary: Pam Driscoll and the longest day.
Reccer's Notes:
In "Monday," we watch Mulder and Scully live one day over and over again. They die over and over again, too, when a robbery attempt goes bad. It's The X-Files time loop episode. But Mulder and Scully aren't the true center of this drama; they don't even remember reliving it. The real protagonist is Pam, the bank robber's girlfriend, whose eventual death is the pivotal event that sets the universe back in motion. This story is about how she tries to stop the time loop, but it's also about what she does and where she goes after she fails, time and time again.

Star Wars: The Smart One, by Fernwithy
Summary: Naboo artist Palo Torezi is called to show his work to Lord Vader, who has very specific ideas of what he is looking for.
Reccer's Notes: Palo Torezi was the boy who gave Padme her first kiss, and later became an artist. Years after Padme's death and the formation of the Empire, Palo meets up with Darth Vader. It's a pretty freaky meeting. Palo doesn't have the information necessary to figure out why Vader is obsessed with what he is, but he's smart enough to put at least some of the pieces together.

Firefly/Doctor Who: Waltz, by Irena K
Summary: Six times Inara Serra ran into Jack Harkness.
Reccer's Notes: Running into a time traveler multiple times when you don't even know time travel is possible is pretty confusing, but Inara's smart. She figures it out. I love her perspective on Jack and her cool, collected way of dealing with someone who may or may not remember the last time they met.

SG-1: Gavilan, by Elysium
Summary: A test pilot, Teal'c, and a death glider. Need I say more?
Reccer's Notes: Early in SG-1, the team captured a couple of Death Gliders (Goa'uld fighter spacecraft) that were used as the basis for designing Earth's own space-capable fighters, the F-302s. But before they got to that part, they had to thoroughly study the captured Death Gliders. This is the story of Gavilan (a test pilot who thinks the craft was captured from the Russians, or maybe the Chinese) and Teal'c, taking the Glider for a spin. They're just supposed to be testing things out, but of course it never works out that easily. Which leaves Gavilan wondering: just who is Teal'c, and where the hell did the craft come from, anyway?  pairing:(gen).no.pairing  character:teal'c  character:jack.o'neill  length:01.000-5.000.words  creator:elysium  theme:outsider.pov  reccer:beatrice_otter  character:original.character(s)
