fallingtowers: there's a special providence
Anna should be insulted to rank somewhere above the new copying machine and far below open-bar night at the actors’ pub in the general attention. Frankly, she prefers it that way: as long as it stays like that, nobody will ever guess her secret.

Anna loves the theatre.

dsudis:The Importance of Accurate Moaning
"I didn't realize what that meant. We didn't have dissonance storms in California."

"No?" Cecil said, and then, with a slyly amused look, "I suppose the mountains blocked them?"`

patho: a love song for schrödinger
With his own two eyes Carlos has observed a house that empirically doesn’t exist. He’s never seen a quantum particle, but his computer models and lab readouts reassure him of their presence. Cecil – lovely and wonderful and strange Cecil – is comforting and solid in every way…except in Carlos’ peripheral vision, when his edges waver as though the lack of direct observation has left him unsure of what shape he should be.

It means absolutely nothing, to see a thing in Night Vale.

margo_kim: The Untimely Disappearance of the Voice of Night Vale
City Council announces a new secret law. The Night Vale Astronomy Club has officially denounced the existence of stars. The Night Vale Historical Society is throwing a barbecue for a tragedy that no one is allowed to talk about. It's the usual week's news in Night Vale except for one tiny detail-Cecil isn't the one reporting it. And as Head Intern Jessica ignores her normal inclination to not do any work ever (you don't become head intern by being a go-getter) to fill in for him while Carlos conducts his desperate search, she's beginning to think that maybe Cecil isn't the only one who'll disappear.

empty_mirrors: Knowing Me, Knowing You
A simple joint mission goes awry in a way that neither Kakashi nor Iruka could have predicted.

Spot-on bodyswap shenanigans!

tucuxi & pentapus: Breaking and Entering
Kakashi notices an intruder in Iruka's apartment, and finds rather more than he bargained for.

The opening is slyly hilarious as well as a fun action sequence, and I like the established relationship.

Jeff called her Mrs. Lonelyhearts, and called him the Songwriter. But they looked out their windows too ...

This is absolutely wonderful, a lovely elaboration on a great movie.

belford: Bigger Than You Think
"You descend chasms, you crawl through low chambers. Occasionally you see a discarded scrap or a bootprint in the mud, for these tunnels are not uninhabited, but you leave these signs undisturbed and add few of your own. Companionship on the journey is not what you seek. Silence, the unchanging textures of stone lull you; you push ahead into the dark, but your mind wanders. Did the children of Atalantë explore here as you do? Did they lose themselves, fade into shadow?

You come to yourself at a chimney's precipitous lip. Not so peaceful an end, had you stumbled! Will you climb upwards or downwards?"

An interactive story of exploration -- basically like one of those old text-based adventure games, based on the xkcd comic Click & Drag and a book I don't know but didn't need to. Yuletide magic! \o/

irnan: war is never cheap dear
Jason meets the Batgirls. Predictably, they win.

First in a series about Jason reconciling with the extended Batfamily, despite his best efforts to resist. Layered and lovely.

elfinblue: When Worlds Collide
When a kidnapped Tony DiNozzo is rescued by legendary - and supposedly dead - serial killers Dean and Sam Winchester, the NCIS team takes over the Winchester investigation. What they find is a file filled with contradictions and impossibilities.

A solid old-school crossover casefile. Some of the character voices aren't as consistent as I'd like, but there's tons of fun, clever investigative plot that I adore.

winterhill: Handle With Care
“I don’t want careful,” said Q, because he hated himself or his inventions being treated with kid gloves. “If I wanted careful, I’d have picked a different career.”

Lovely inversion of the 'Bond never brings back Q's tech' trope, paired with an equally lovely and pragmatic take on their relationship.

philomytha: Fashion Victim
"I don't understand why this is happening," Simon said plaintively. "Cetagandan assassination squads, I know how to deal with. Becoming ... popular ... with the young ladies of Vorbarr Sultana is not--is not something I'm trained for."

Dancing and flirting while dealing with some minor intrigue: this is so adorably *them* in such a short story.
