inmyriadbits: The Sincerest Form of Flattery
All detectives are Sherlock Holmes, and they all have their Watsons. Six iterations of Holmes moments in six fandoms.

This is a super charming and fondly meta look at the influence of Holmes on several modern procedurals, plus a coda with the originals, and pitch-perfect voices for all the fandoms.

anonymous: Click Click Click (Goes The Sound of Matt's Life Falling Apart)
Karen has just returned from her lunch break and Matt is contemplating taking his, when Foggy suddenly barks a laugh and says, “Dude, Matt! The internet thinks you're fucking Daredevil!”

Matt freezes, fingers stilling over the case file he's been reviewing, his blood running cold. “They think I'm what?” he manages, aiming for bewildered. It comes out a bit strangled. He's going to kill Foggy for doing this in front of Karen.

“When I say fucking Daredevil,” Foggy clarifies, “I mean *fucking* Daredevil.”

mizzy: I (created from fantasies) exist solely for you
A comic book office AU, where Steve is defrosted a year too late, Thor has forgotten who he is, the Avengers are considered vigilantes, and Iron Man – spotted with a nuclear weapon trying to take advantage of the situation during the Chitauri invasion – was forever labelled an enemy of SHIELD.

Steve goes undercover for SHIELD with the comics team who create The Retaliators, a thinly veiled fictionalization of the Avengers -- which turns out to be created by the actual Avengers. A touch implausible at times, but delightfully funny and full of secret identity feels.

Harvey sometimes moonlights as a Star Trek BNF. Mike might have an attitude problem on the internet. TiberiusGhost is strangely compelling, for a recluse who never goes to meetups, and Harvey's finding this kid Photohead vaguely familiar...

Best secretly-fannish fic I've come across in any fandom, and a lovely piece of meta while still being true to the characters's story.

glossing: The Pleasures of Civic Duty (1/2)
A young Robin goes undercover to investigate a gay bar. Sounds like a cliche, right? But it's a meta, mind-warping story set in Golden Age comics land, where the characters say 'gee', being upright citizens involves violent homophobia, and Robin doesn't really understand how hypocritical and fucked-up his relationship with Batman is. Disturbing and genius.
