Harry Potter: In Care Of by Fang's Fawn
Summary: During the summer before sixth year, Harry finds an injured bat in the garden and decides to try to heal it...and an unwilling Snape learns just what kind of a person Harry Potter really is.
Reccer's Notes: I love Snape-Harry reconciliation stories. I decided to read this story because the idea of Snape as a bat... is irresistible. I liked how this kept in character for both Harry and Snape; that Snape doesn't want to have to re-evaluate his assumptions about Harry, but he isn't going to ignore the truth when he's actually seen it for himself. I like how Harry is just the kind of person who would look after an injured animal, how it makes him feel better to be able to look after someone else when he feels so helpless. I like how this isn't all sunshine and puppies when it all comes out, either.

Harry Potter: Root of the Matter by Noxiaa
Summary: Hermione Granger thought she knew exactly who, or what, she was, but an unexpected run-in with a former Death Eater reveals a part of her that she could never have dreamed existed.
Reccer's Notes: This is good. This is very good. It has: (a) inventive creative masterful world-building, (b) a mystery with twists and turns (and clues), (c) emotional depths and heights, from horror and torment to true love, (d) good characterisation of Hermione and Snape, (e) good characterisation of Mrs. Figg, (f) a creepy original character, the Wizarding equivalent of a Mad Scientist, (g) friendship and love and self-sacrifice, (h) foolishness and desperation and the things we do for love.

Doctor Who: Mad Nursing Skillz by Sahiya
Summary: In which the Doctor has a very bad day, Rory gets to do what he does best, and Amy kicks things. Well, people. Well, one person, specifically.
Reccer's Notes: Canon hasn't paid much attention to the fact that Rory is a nurse, except to imply that he would rather be a doctor. This story makes up for that lack, and shows us that Rory is really good at what he does; not just in actions, but in astute observation. Not only that, but the three of them demonstrate a mutual affection which warms the cockles of my heart. Lovely.

Harry Potter: Turn To Dark by Kribu
Summary: Some days, waking up is different.
Reccer's Notes: One would think that it wouldn't be possible to blend Sci-Fi and a magical universe like Harry Potter, but this author manages it. From the dramatic opening through to the end, we are led on a vivid journey full of suspense and mystery, twists and turns and questions leading to more questions. But it isn't just the plot, the characterisation is good too, with the point-of-view Hermione full of wry observations as well as shock and fear and attraction and smarts. Snape is as snarky as ever, though not quite as grumpy. He is only human too, he isn't a robot without feelings, even if he tries to hide them. A fantastic story.

Harry Potter: The Princess Of Gryffindor by Aurette
Summary: No Harry. No Ron. No hope. A broken Hermione goes through the motions of living until the one comes who can truly make her feel alive again. Canon through pg309 of DH. AU, Multiple Character Death, SS/HG. Rated M for reasons.
Reccer's Notes: If I had known that this was a Voldemort-wins story before I started reading it, I probably wouldn't have read it, and then I would have missed out, because this is very good. And it does have a hopeful ending, which would have been a deal-breaker for me if it hadn't been. This is heartbreaking in a good way. Severus and Hermione give each other a reason to live, support in dark times. Severus is brilliant, and Hermione is the only one he can be vulnerable with.

Doctor Who/Farscape: Travel Light by AstroGirl
Summary: The Seventh Doctor and Ace become involved in a rebellion against the Peacekeepers.
Reccer's Notes: It makes perfect sense for the Doctor to become involved in a rebellion against the Peacekeepers. Of course if the Doctor happens to drop into a situation of rebellion against oppressors, he's going to help. It's what the Doctor does! Since this is told from mainly Ace's point of view, one doesn't have to be familiar with the Farscape universe, really. This has got so much in it: adventure, rebellion, plans, betrayal, dilemmas, good, evil, good intentions, gizmos, loyalty, encouragement, and a hopeful ending. And Baniks, of course. With a great Stark, and Planning!Doctor and GungHo!Ace, and, like, it's great, okay?

Narnia/Doctor Who: The Wooded World Of Worlds by Lady Yueh
Summary: There exists a place where trees grow tall...
Reccer's Notes: One wouldn't think that Narnia is the kind of thing that could be crossed over with Doctor Who, or if they were, then the result would be silly. But this story captures them both where they intersect best -- in the deep and the mythical. Here we have the 9th Doctor, post-Time War, trying to lose himself in the peace and forgetfulness of the Wood Between the Worlds... and then he is visited by a Lion. This resonates so well; sad and beautiful, with a touch of hope.

SGA/Doctor Who: The Holes In The Ground by Fahye
Summary: Rodney has absolutely no clue what to do, what to say, but the Doctor keeps spinning and keeps talking and maybe all he's expected to do is sit there and listen.
Reccer's Notes: This was a fantastic, brilliant story. The characters were spot-on, and the plot was one of those lovely ones where people meet each other in different orders due to time travel. And it managed to be character-ful and poignant and light and dark and profound and snarky.

Doctor Who/ST:TNG: Tea And Sympathy by Selena
Summary: Sometimes meeting each other in the wrong order means you know just what to listen for. Guinan and the Doctor through the centuries.
Reccer's Notes: This captures both characters wonderfully. Insightful, touches of gentle humour, poignant, bittersweet.

ST-Reboot/Multiverse: People Who Repair Quantums, or Five Planets the Enterprise Never Visited
Summary: 'So you're a drug-addicted messianic cult dedicated to drinking your own distilled urine so your descendants generations down the road can grow palm trees. How's that working out for you?'
Reccer's Notes: Part of the fun of reading this story is figuring out which well-known science-fictional planets these are, but you don't need to know them in order to enjoy this story. The first four sections vary from good to very good, serious to funny, but the last one is just stunning, haunting, evocative, and makes this story a must-read.

Harry Potter/Doctor Who: Out of Time by Dacian Goddess
Summary: Severus Snape and Hermione Granger begin an interesting association. How well can they make it last when neither of them is exactly as they seem?
Reccer's Notes: This is an amazing story. It didn't just take a concept that I thought couldn't work and make it work, it dragged us willy-nilly into an intense and vivid world, painted in shades of grey and fire, concentrated and complex, like burning spices. It jumps back and forth in time, much like a time-machine would, and gives us hints of things we have to figure out for ourselves. One warning, however: this contains a Dumbledore who is at the dark end of the spectrum. That, I think, was the price of making the concept work. Hermione is well done; an older Hermione, who doesn't even realize that she's been ground down to a shadow of herself by the Ministry and the lack of support from her friends. And then... she finds she's running to keep up with someone who makes her feel like she doesn't know anything at all. And nothing is the same.

Vorkosiverse/Temeraire: "In A Name" and "When You Fly" by Sahiya
"In A Name": Young Miles contemplates dragon eggs, the course of Barrayaran history, and the importance of names. Piotr . . . is Piotr.
"When You Fly": Miles wondered if he should go throw up while he had the chance.
Reccer's Notes: This is a Barrayar with Temeraire-verse dragons! What else do I need to say? Well, apart from the great characterisation one would expect from this author.
I'm reccing both stories together, because one follows on from the other, and you'll want to read them both.

Harry Potter: There Where I Can Never Find You by Shefa
Summary: You disappear into a moon lit night, and I imagine I might have seen you go if only I'd been paying attention.
Reccer's Notes: This is so well written. The present-tense gives it an immediacy as well as an uncertainty about how it will end. Sorrow and loss permeates this story like cold soaks through a rainy week. The images and words that begin each section are visual poetry. Yes, this is full of angst, but hope and love shine through like breaks in the cloud - and then the author pulls the rug from underneath us again. Sunlight and Moonlight, clouds and storms, the imagery weaves its way through the story. The characterisation of Snape and Hermione is what makes this even better; they are far from simple, and that complexity shines through even when memory is missing. The complexity and the love. This is a must-read.

Harry Potter: The Power of Suggestion by Leandra713
Summary: Hermione suffers an accident and Severus must come to her rescue.
Reccer's Notes: Amnesia with a twist. Hermione wakes up in St. Mungos after an accident, but not everything is as it appears. This had very good characterisation of both Snape and Hermione. I really liked how plausibly this was constructed, and how the consequences worked out.

Harry Potter: The Mysterious Miss Granger by Duniazade
Summary: It was a good enough life, until this strange girl turned up.
Reccer's Notes: I hadn't expected to like this, but this is so well written (the science, the point-of-view, the mystery) that it drew me in. I like how the author resists the urge to explain, while still giving enough hints for us not to be totally confused. And then, at the end, a happy ending.

X-Files: Possessions by R J Anderson
Summary: When Mulder loses all his personal recollections to a woman who feeds off her victims' memories, he is forced to re-evaluate his life, his beliefs, and his relationship with Scully.
Reccer's Notes: Really really good. Mulder loses his memory - and he doesn't like what he sees of himself from outside. Soul-searching, and true to character - but not mushy.

Harry Potter: Half Life by Scoffy
Summary: Nothing out of the ordinary ever happened to David Harper. Until he died and awoke as Severus Snape.
Reccer's Notes: So many good things in this: the way Snape's personality shows even as he has no memory of his old life; the reaction of someone who doesn't believe in magic to waking up as a magical portrait; the way that David desperately doesn't want to be there, because he wants his old life back; his growing friendship with Headmistress Hermione; and his reaction when a piece of his past comes to Hogwarts. Really very good.

Lois & Clark: Four Days To Nightfall by Nan Smith
Summary: With the Nightfall Asteroid threatening Earth, Lois Lane has another problem as well: Who is this naked man that she found in Centennial Park, where does he come from and what is his connection with Nightfall? An Elseworld Lois and Clark story.
Reccer's Notes: Another AU variation on the episode 'All Shook Up' (where Superman tackles the Nightfall asteroid and loses his memory). In this universe, while Clark had intentions of going to Metropolis, he hadn't actually got there yet; there is no 'Superman', and he had never met Lois. And yet fate decrees that Lois Lane is the one who finds the amnesiac...
I like the way that Lois shines as an investigator here, and how Clark's inherent niceness shines through his amnesia. Also shades of "Unbreakable" as amnesiac Clark of course doesn't know that he's "super"...

Harry Potter: Extinctus amabitur idem by Ianthe Waiting
Summary: When Hermione Granger realizes that important details of her memory are somehow missing, she finds that a powerful Charm has erased all memory of Severus Snape the night he was supposedly killed. In the process of regaining her memories, Hermione finds instead the man, but not the memories she so desperately needs to save him.
Reccer's Notes: Fascinating story, encompassing mystery, self-doubt, determination, manipulation, good intentions, ambivalence and dreams; almost lyrical in places. Not your average romance; not your average amnesia story either.

Harry Potter: Eternal Sunshine Of The Scourgified Mind by Solstice Muse
Summary: The trio have defeated Voldemort but paid a devastating price. How can they cope without each other and without any magical memories? AU.
Reccer's Notes: This is compatible with Order of the Phoenix, AU thereafter.
This story uses an idea which could have been stupid and melodramatic, but the way it is told makes it intriguing, as we are dumped into the middle of events without knowing how they got that way. Despite the distraction of a number of spelling mistakes, it is still very worth reading; unexpected plot twists, original characters that one grows to care about, depths of despair without being melodramatic; love and care without being sentimental.
