Elementary: the truth may vary by beardsley
Summary: Once upon a time, the woman who calls herself Moriarty meets a second-year surgical resident: this is how the story would start, were it known to anyone that the woman who calls herself Moriarty does not work alone.

(This is not the story.)
Reccer's Notes: A well done, clever canon AU: what if Joan met Moriarty before she met Sherlock? And I love how their relationship is written in this fic.

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell: Of Five Adventures That Occurred During The Reign Of The Raven Barista. by Lanna Michaels
Summary: Cracky coffee shop AU with magic!
Reccer's Notes: Don't be wary that this is a modern coffee shop AU (with a parody of a Tumblr post midway through)--this short 5 +1 fic, originally written for Yuletide, keeps the personalities and the characters of the book intact.

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell: A Necklace of Broken Promises and Regrets by Kaesa
Summary: While traveling in Faerie, Strange and Norrell encounter Henry Lascelles. He is half-conscious, ill, and murderous, and he has made a powerful enemy.
Reccer's Notes: Wonderful fic, done in the style of and set after the book, about Strange & Norrell discovering a mystery in Faerie.

The Mighty Boosh: Soulful Soulmates (dot co dot uk) by nikkiscarlet
Summary: Fed up with the local dating scene, Howard's giving internet dating a try. Vince isn't sure he likes the idea . . . at least until he realizes he can have a little fun with it.
Reccer's Notes: I like how this fic envisions Howard, Vince, and the rest of the Boosh crew in an age where online dating (think less Tinder and more Match.com) exists. For Yuletide 2013.

Sesame Street: C Is For Cookie Clicker by donutsweeper
Summary: Cookie Monster discovers Cookie Clicker. Things go about as well as you'd expect them to.
Reccer's Notes: Okay, so Cookie Clicker was a trendy game that appeared in quite a few fics for Yuletide 2013. (It still exists, but it isn't as trendy as it once was.) Despite the inclusion of Cookie Clicker, this fic feels as if it could be a sketch on Sesame Street.

Much might happen in between such short, bookend verses. This is the story of two young people who fell in love, who drifted out of it, and why.
