SGA: See No Evil by Greyias
Summary: Nine months into John Sheppard's early "retirement" from the Air Force finds him working as a test pilot on a groundbreaking new plane for the world's leading defense contractor and being introduced to his difficult new co-worker, Dr. Rodney McKay. However things aren't quite as innocent as they first seem. There's much more to the X-302 Project, John's new employer, and Rodney McKay than first meets the eye.
Reccer's Notes: Rodney McKay has a falling out with the military and joins the ranks at a company making great, almost impossible technological strides. Despite being incredibly reluctant and cranky, Rodney is befriended by John and Carson. But all is not as it seems with Rodney, and together they face break-ins, attacks, and mysterious goings-on at their place of work. This is really well written with solid characterization. Despite not having known each other long, the boys risk their lives for each other. John really cares about Rodney, who is trying his best not to care for him in return. If you're looking for fascinating plot and friendship, look no further!

SGA: After the Other (series) by Siria
Summary: Radek comes to visit him in July. It's only a flying visit, a couple of days snatched between a quantum physics conference in Bern and a lecture tour in America, but Radek is determined to make it. (The one where they're academics in Ireland)
Reccer's Notes: I don't actually know if Siria is or was an Irish academic, but this AU is so specific and feels so accurate that I strongly suspect it! Siria manages to transpose them both really well into this (for John) slightly unusual setting, and it's a charming, interesting, feel-good read, with a little pining and UST initially, and some nice "slice of life" vignettes in the stories. I very much recommend the series.

Fast & Furious: Who's the Buster? by JessicaMDawn
Summary: In a world where mutants and cops are enemies, Brian O’Conner is an undercover agent in the mutant capital of the USA. Dominic Toretto and his team run this city and Brian will have to get close to them if he wants to complete his mission and get out alive.
Reccer's Notes: As with the movies and most fics - I love the found family vibes in this fic. I really like how the mutations/abilities fit with the characters. I love how characters of several movies are interwoven in this fic. And, I'm not going to lie, I love the h/c.

Stargate Atlantis: Wide Open Ocean, by setissma
Summary: He went home with two slices of leftover pizza and the strange impression that McKay could almost have been a nice guy, if he hadn't been an asshole. (Marine biology AU.)
Reccer's Notes: This is one of my favorite comfort reads from SGA. John's alone in the world, still a bit young, still figuring out who he is and want he wants. Enter Rodney being loud and pushy and also a marine biologist. A gentle fic, with lots of nice detail about the Shedd Aquarium and working with animals. Contains the death of a parent.

The X-Files: The Way Things Are by Sukie Tawdry
Summary: One night and their whole lives were changed forever.
Reccer's Notes: I got this rec from fic talk back in the day. [link: http://www.boards2go.com/boards/board.cgi?action=read&id=1171765566&user=storytime&page=7] One of the posters there called it "her guilty pleasure story." True confession time: it's mine, too. In her author's notes, Sukie Tawdry wrote, "I began to wonder, what would have happened in the first season, if instead of making Gillian Anderson wear an overcoat in July, 1013 had decided to write her pregnancy into the show."

Her premise is midway through the first season, Mulder and Scully have one night of drunken, unprotected sex, which results in Scully getting pregnant. The story that follows isn't romantic or sappy; instead, it is funny and incisive, poignant and scary. Mulder and Scully even stay in character, once you get past the drunken sex bit. The first season is the only time I thought they had a shot at a "normal" relationship, not that this is a normal relationship, exactly. Season one is my favorite, and damn it, she just nails that season one early partnership vibe, even as it's being complicated by an unexpected pregnancy.

Stargate Atlantis: The Writer, by suzvoy {vid}
Summary: An aspiring writer lacks inspiration until he starts a part-time job at an old movie theatre...but from obsession comes jealousy.
Reccer's Notes: A clever constructed reality vid that uses clips from Stargate Atantis as well as from other roles Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett have played to tell the story of a writer who gets too caught up in his work.

Star Trek AOS: Affogato, by reapersun {fancomic}
Summary: Kirk and Spock (and the rest of the gang) work in a coffee shop.
Reccer's Notes: This is the ultimate in alternative professions because Spock's human in this one. Also, a barista. I love reapersun's art, and this flirty, brassy Jim Kirk is so pretty with his big, blue eyes and tight shirts. Reading this on Pillowfort is a bit of a pain because you have to click through to see each page, but it's worth it to see Jim flirting with everyone in sight and nearly making Spock explode with jealousy.

This is part of a larger crossover series with characters from Harry Potter, Hannibal, and Sherlock, so if you like this, or those, check out the rest of the series. It starts with Macchiato [link: https://www.pillowfort.social/posts/405036], which is Hannigram, or you can just find the pairing you're interested in on the artist's comics masterlist [link: https://www.pillowfort.social/posts/372999].

My Hero Academia: go, tell it on the mountain by noahfronsenbug
Summary: Hizashi was staring at him. “Did you know about this and not tell me?” Yamada asked, his voice cracking. “Like, did he tell you before we left? Because I’m so jealous it is not even funny. You’re going to get to guide All Might all by yourself for weeks and hear all his stories and you did not fucking tell me?!”

Shōta went back to the kitchen and got his beer. He drank the other half of it, because he did not know what to do. He came back to his bedroom, leaned against the door jamb, and looked Hizashi directly in the eyes. “Hizashi,” he said, completely serious, “I have never been more confused about a damn thing in my entire life, and this is including the fact that somehow you are my best friend.”
Reccer's Notes: An author that really knows Mountaineering, mixed with awesome Trans represetation, and a romance involving someone with chronic illness, and what is not to love.

Don't worry if you aren't familiar with the fandom, this is a complete AU so a fairly easy entry point.

Captive Prince: I do occasionally eat meat, by Codango
Summary: Laurent stared at the glossy ad on his kitchen counter. It had fallen out of the pack that the local newspaper shoved in his mailbox every Tuesday. It was for a new boutique menswear shop. Grand opening this weekend, apparently.

He wiped his hands on his apron — bespoke canvas, from a local craftsman — and flipped a couple pages back in his cooking quarterly. This time, the ad was for a small but expensive brand of men's watch.

Laurent wondered if the beefcake smirking seductively in both ads knew anything about either running a small business or cooking. He narrowed his eyes. The watch looked like it barely fit around the man's wrist. What a... behemoth.
Reccer's Notes: Laurent's a chef and Damen has biceps like rugby balls. They have not one, not two, but three or even four meet-cutes, and it's so much fun. Laurent is dry and superior, and Damen is huge and charming and enthusiastic. Nicaise is a cat.

Summary: Ladies and gentlemen, your driver of the Number 21 Air Force Ford Fusion, John Sheppard.

Teen Wolf: Love Runs Wild by DevilDoll
Summary: "You've got a hickey on the back of your neck!" A Neckz 'n Throats story.
Reccer's Notes: Derek and Stiles are models for a softcore werewolf porn magazine (Stiles is still human, which is part of his appeal). Stiles shows up after a hookup with a hickey on his neck and can't for the life of him figure out why everyone is freaking out about Derek, or why Derek is looking at him so strangely. Humor, hot sex, and all the fun you can always expect from DevilDoll!

Supernatural RPF: Food Porn by likeanything
Summary: Jensen’s a neurotic sous chef and his roommate Jared’s a disgruntled chef turned blogger turned author who’s just trying to finish his book. Mostly they call each other names, and then they fall in love. And then they call each other names some more.
Reccer's Notes: About a decade ago, despite not being in either Supernatural or its attendant RPF fandom, I came to read several funny J2 AUs. This is one that has stayed with me. It's hilarious, with great characters, but also, if you are addicted to Food Network and/or a foodie who's into cooking, the descriptions of food and cooking are fantastic. Plus, hot make-outs and awkward sex, two elements I love. Jensen is divorced with a kid, who is also funny, but I thought I'd mention it in case it's an issue for anyone.

Yuri on Ice: Hood & glove, by Fahye
Summary:
"I don't mess with the fae," Otabek says.

"I'm not asking you to mess with them," JJ flat-out lies.

Reccer's Notes: The king of the fairies has fallen in love with a mortal, and the weather is completely fucked up. Enter Otabek, unassuming and yet ultra-competent hero for hire, tasked by King JJ to put things right...
I loved everything about this story, the writting and the narration through Otabek's wry point of view, the humor, the way it uses very knowingly all the fairytales tropes including Yuuri's shapeshifting, and the neat Tam Lin retelling at the end.
As a plus, the story has gorgeous illustrations by hawberries
A must read!

Temeraire: Mutiny on the Reliant by WerewolvesAreReal
Summary: It's bad luck to have a dragon aboard a ship, and this tiny black creature can't be natural at all. Slowed by a gale and bad-luck, the Reliant mutinies and puts Laurence and Temeraire alone on the Amitié. The journey back to England is difficult, and on the way Laurence accidentally finds himself leading a small fleet of fighting ships. As one does.
Reccer's Notes: This is an "step to the left" AU that still stays very true to Laurence, Temeraire and the books. It shows what Laurence and Temeraire are capable of when they are cut loose and left to their own devices. They still serve England but not quite in the way they (especially Laurence) ever imagined.

I also love how they aquire the fleet and what they make of it.

The Musketeers (BBC): Powers 'Verse by wildforce71, fandomlver and SailorSol
Summary: "In as much as it is given to God, and God alone, to command such forces...all those found to control Abilities will be, in the least, imprisoned to stop the spread of their heresy...and at the most, released to the Divine Judgment of God. This shall be law wheresoever our Mother Church holds sway."

-Church law, ratified 1587
Reccer's Notes: I'm rec'ing here a 'verse that plays with the "What if everyone had powers" theme and follows in part canon and in part goes off canon completely.

I love the abilities the Musketeers and others have and while some of them are obvious, some are still surprising. I love how these abilities influence canon and how some things end up differently due to that.

The characterization is great and when the story follows canon, I love how everything is woven together so it works for this AU.

Teen Wolf: A Crooked Way to Fly by andavs
Summary: “We can’t just leave him here to die.”

“He’s an emissary, Scott.” Derek tried to make his tone empathetic, but Scott’s tendency to fight back on everything always grated on his nerves. “His pack is gone, he won’t survive more than a day or two either way.”

“Then we should stay with him.”

Derek sighed as he studied the man for a moment; he was too pale against the fur rim of his hood, almost grey from lying out in the snow, and his cloak was stained with dark dried blood around a protruding arrow shaft. It was unlikely he would even last the night. They would probably be able to carry on in the morning with little time lost, if any.

It wasn’t a horrible idea, Derek decided reluctantly. They hadn’t been able to set up a real camp for a few weeks in the open foothills, and they were all on edge from sleeping in exposed areas. A defensible place to sleep would be good for them, even if they were surrounded by death. They would be able to give the pack proper burials, at the very least.

“Fine. One night,” Derek relented, already moving away to check on Isaac. “He’s your responsibility.”

Chinese mythology/Firefly: 四十, by Trascendenza
Summary: As long as she could ensure that her family would never go wanting, she would be content.
Reccer's Notes: This story is set in the Firefly universe, but doesn't talk about any of the characters or plot points from the series or movie. And it uses characters from Chinese mythology, but adapted to the Firefly universe. You don't need to know anything about either (I don't) to enjoy it; it's an interesting story well-told. A woman marries because of her new husbands family position, but finds out too late he's not a man she wants to spend the rest of her life with. So she goes off into space to seek her fortune.

MCU: Hollow and Honeycomb, by antistar_e (kaikamahine)
Summary: Several years before Sam was born, a Supreme Court ruling decided that those who carried and visibly expressed a hereditary winged trait could not be mutilated, amputated, or otherwise altered without their consent, nor could they be discriminated against for housing, employment, etc. based on their possession of wings.

The world that Sam grows up in is one that remembers when it had been different. [Wing!fic AU.]
Reccer's Notes: I love the worldbuilding in this, the way the author takes a fantasy trope (wingfic!) and looks at it through the lens of how America has historically treated those who are different, and used Sam and Steve and Bucky to explore the way things change over time. Plus, I love the way Sam is written, the way he comes to life. It's such a great fic.

MCU: Scents and Sensibility by galwednesday, silentwalrus, skellerbvvt
Summary: Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.
Reccer's Notes: This fic takes the a/b/o basic premise, spins the biology on its head, comes up with really insightful worldbuilding based on it, and then uses the whole thing as the background for a delightful Steve/Bucky story that is by turns funny, sweet, and sexy. Lots of fun to read.

Summary: Blood magic was supposed to keep Harry safe, but his relatives are expendable. Blood magic was supposed to keep Harry looking like his adoptive father, but it's wearing off. Blood is a bond, but so is the memory of hate -- or love.
Reccer's Notes: This is a Severitus story, and the best I know of. Severitus stories are those in which Snape is actually Harry's father. This one does an excellent job of building a realistic, in-character relationship between the two of them, building from where they were at Harry's sixteenth birthday when Harry and Snape find out their true relationship. Very well done and fun to read.

Reccer's Notes: I read a lot of Tenipuri fanfic in high school, most of which was, in retrospect, total garbage (as befits a canon that is as objectively garbage as Prince of Tennis, tbh), but I've always remembered trixiechick's vampire AU fondly, and I was pleasantly surprised when I reread it on a whim a couple years ago to realize it's actually a delightful and well-written mish-mash of vampiric anguish and high school mutual pining. Should you read this fic if you hate vampires and/or high school settings? No, absolutely not. But if you enjoy either of those things, it is delicious trope city. I was really upset to come back and find that the website was down and trixiechick had never uploaded her Prince of Tennis fic to the AO3, but thankfully the Wayback Machine was here for me in my time of need!

Torchwood: Pocket Watch Boy, by mhalachai
Summary: Ianto Jones is a very different sort of boy. (wee!Time Lord!Ianto)
Reccer's Notes: In Doctor Who canon, Time Lords can put their consciousness into a pocket watch and make themselves human without remembering that they are not. In Torchwood canon, Ianto Jones has a pocket watch he is very fond of. You can see where fandom would go with this, I hope. I know of two fics where Ianto is a pocketwatched Time Lord, and both are excellent. This one really leans into what difference it would have made for Ianto, and what that difference would then mean for Torchwood.

due South: "Hawks and Hands" by Dira Sudis
Summary: Eighteen sex scenes strung together with angst and hockey.
Reccer's Notes: This is such a classic of the (pick several) fandom, genre, form that I never totally know what to say when introducing it to new readers, so—I guess I'll start from the basics. This is a due South AU in which Fraser and Kowalski are professional hockey players, and fourteen years later, you can find its fingerprints all over both due South fanworks and hockey RPF. It's also extensively footnoted for the new-to-hockey: I recently had occasion to introduce my partner to it to help her cement a beginner's introduction to hockey as a sport. I am not joking about this even a little bit. It helps that it's worth a read even if you care about hockey not at all: "Hawks and Hands" is also just a very long, very meaty and satisfying read, and one of those stories that you'll find yourself coming back to over and over, for the trip it takes you on down-down-down into some very dark places, and then back up again.

Stargate Atlantis: Uncanny Valley, by Sarah T
Summary: "Real isn't how you are made. It's a thing that happens to you."
Reccer's Notes: Back in the day, Atlantis fans occasionally noted that the character of John Sheppard was, shall we say, loosely defined. Besides the charm and witty banter, he was a very lightly-sketched chameleon that adapted to just about any situation the show came up with. Several really good fics took that premise and ran with it, coming up with various explanations for it. This is one of my favorites.

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.

Hockey RPF: The Choir Invisible by Ferritin4
Summary: “I think I’m a ghost savant,” Marc-André said under his breath, the day after they met. “I’m the Cesar Millan of ghosts. I’m a ghost whisperer.”

“Wasn’t that a shitty television show?” Kris said. “And no you’re fucking not; anyone can talk to me. I’m dead, not deaf.”
Reccer's Notes: Marc-Andre works for a paranormal detective agency; Kris is a ghost. This works out remarkably well. I absolutely loved this, especially in the last third when the angst and horror at the back of the situation slowly gets reveals. (But there's a happy ending, too.)

Hockey RPF: gonna be you and me (gonna be everything you’ve ever dreamed) by streimel
Summary: Dreaming about Justin on a nightly basis would be one thing. Blurring the lines of where the dreams end and reality begins is another.
Reccer's Notes: I fricking love dreamsharing fic, so I was already primed to like this, and then it has good crunchy feelings, a little bit of conflict, and a resolution that takes the time to work through some of that conflict before getting to the kissing. I enjoyed it a lot.

Hannibal: As the plant that never blooms by virdant
Summary: When you love another, and they do not love you back, then a flower grows in your chest. It blossoms in your lungs so you cough up petals at the thought of them. Its leaves unfurl in your throat so you choke daily. Its roots burrow into your heart and remain until you perish.

Garrett Jacob Hobbs loved his daughter so much that he murdered eight girls. Hannibal cut out lungs heavy with rose blossoms and mounted the body on a stag. Will Graham put nine bullets in Hobbs' chest and a flower did not bloom.


Reccer's Notes: I have no interest in Hanahaki disease as a trope, but I absolutely loved what Virdant did with the premise. The writting is gorgeous and the way the magical realism fits with Hannibal's universe is brilliant: the use of the flowers for food of course (!!!!), but also the flowery metaphors and poetic imagery, the way the themes connect with Hannibal's obsession for Will...
Beautiful execution of a great idea!

All For the Game: you say i'm a dreamer, but i'm not the only one by Idnis
Summary:

Neil Josten wouldn’t say his life was very magical.
His dreams on the other hand.

They always seem too real.

And then there's the fact that he finds himself returning to one person's dreams.
Reccer's Notes: I love Idnis' stylized tone in this. It does a good job with the surreal sense of being in a dream for most of the fic (it's about dreamwalkers if you can't tell from that summary).

MCU: Like Water Off A Wolf's Back by mekana47
Summary: Clint bristles. He might be a wolf shifter, and Coulson may have been the one to bring him in, but he’s no one’s puppy.

-or-

Five times "Coulson's puppy" was an insult, and one time it wasn't.

Reccer's Notes: A super fun quick read that makes me want so much more in this universe. I love the subtle world building here with how shifters fit into the wider comic-book world. It's also great for how ridiculously good Clint is at his job, while still being inherently Clint in that he's a little shit who refuses to do his paperwork.

Summary: The SGA/Howl's Moving Castle AU no one asked for.
Reccer's Notes: Trust me, I would have asked for it if I'd had any idea how much I needed it. This fusion is a perfect blend of both worlds, creating something completely new, yet strangely familiar. John and Rodney are smartly in character, the mix of Stargate canon and magic feels easy and natural, and the writing is really, incredibly wonderful. And I'm confident you can enjoy this even if you're not familiar with Howl's Moving Castle.

Hannibal: love like a dark cloud full of rain by coloredink
Summary: "The other kids were always taking their hearts out," said Will. "The usual games, I'll show you mine if you show me yours. But mine didn't seem to work that way. It never seemed to want to come out."

or,

Let it be a fairy tale. Once upon a time, there was a boy who was careless with his heart...

Reccer's Notes: Such a striking story, for all it is a short one. It packs a punch and uses to great result the magical realism premise of people being actually able to give their heart away in a physical sense.

Sherlock: Left by lifeonmars
Summary: John Watson is left-handed.

He’s tried not to let it affect his life, but as any Lefty knows, that’s almost impossible
Reccer's Notes: An interesting and clever AU retelling of Season 1, in a world where most people have "knacks"... Or to be precise, all right handed-people. I enjoyed the characterization and worldbuilding around the knacks and the way they influenced the plot, as well as Lifeonmars' creating and handleing of the tension.

Hannibal: To Welcome in the Year by coloredink
Summary: Dr. Hannibal Lecter can control time in small, localized ways, but he no longer uses it in surgery; Will Graham can repair small objects, but he works for the FBI. It has been winter for as long as anyone can remember. That's how the story begins.
Reccer's Notes: Magical realism is very well suited to Hannibal in many ways, and I greatly enjoyed the way the mundane and supernatual blend and the very clever way ColoredInk chose the Gift of both Hannibal and Will, and the thematic and symbolic callbacks to the teacup coming back together, but also to the more fairytale-inspired weather disruption.
A delightfull story.

The Queen's Thief: Costis Ormentiedes and the Thief of Eddis, by kormantic
Summary: "He looks too young to be taking his own class," Costis continued. "He's the worst Defense Against the Dark Arts professor we've ever had. And that's saying something."

"You're mad for him, aren't you," Aris teased. "It's ‘Queen' Attolia all over again… calf-eyes and mooning and swearing fealty…"

Costis felt his ears go scarlet.

"I do not have a crush on the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher," Costis insisted.

"Happy to hear it," Professor Saccularius sang out. "As I understand it, those can be very awkward, for both parties. I'll expect those scrolls on my desk first thing on Wednesday!" And he breezed past them as if he couldn't tell that Costis was choking on his own tongue.

*

Or: the one where Costis is exceedingly suspicious of the new DADA professor.

Teen Wolf: That Which You Cannot Undo by uraneia
Summary: By twenty-eight, Stiles has resigned himself to a quiet life of working in his magic shop, selling Jackson Whittemore fart-inducing tea, and looking after his goddaughter. It's a good life. But the quiet goes to hell when his sister, Lydia, shows up with a crispy werewolf in her trunk and a bite mark on her shoulder, because hard on her heels comes the hottest person Stiles has ever seen, and he happens to be looking for his uncle.

You know, the dead guy Stiles helped Lydia bury last night.

Star Trek: you will see what it is to be overcome, by magneticwave
Summary: What kind of an idiot would try to explain magic to a Vulcan.
Reccer's Notes: This isn't Star Trek does Hogwarts. This is Captain James T. Kirk, Space Wizard! Like Jim, the style is breezy, yet secretly dire at the same time. The prose is deft and athletic, and I was continually in awe of all the things it was doing. And then there's Jim, of course, charming and reckless, just cruising through life and avoiding all his problems until they flip his brains inside out at which point he still doesn't want to deal with them. Spock, meanwhile, has turned the Spock up to eleven and is deliciously tense and distant right up until he explodes into a forest fire of feelings. So basically business as usual, only with magic.

Summary: Magic is dangerous. It demands a price for its use, few understand it, and only some have it. Napoleon is one of them. Then Waverly gets intelligence on a group in contact with THRUSH that may be attempting to push the boundaries of what magic can do.
Reccer's Notes: First of all, I am in live with the magic system in this *_* Worldbuilding is my weakness and this one, while subtle, is very enticing. I also love the relationship between the OT3, the bonds of trust and affection they build with one-another. Truly a great fic <3

Summary: Though, really, what’s he supposed to say? “Darlings, when I was born Henry the Sixth was the King of England and dying like a normal human keeps slipping my mind?”

(or, napoleon solo can't die. this tends to complicate relationships.)
Reccer's Notes: Of course Napoleon Solo would get cursed for stealing from the fae! I really liked how the author how handled Napoleon as a centuries-old being, who's forgotten more and more of being human as he goes along, and who loses bits of himself along the way. It is a curse, after all. Also the relationship was very sweet.

In which there are tuxedoes, vodka martinis (shaken, not stirred), fakeout makeouts, massive property damage, a shark pit, and Steve has an Ursula Andress moment. But mostly, in true James Bond fashion, villains are seduced to the side of good.
Reccer's Notes: A James Bond-themed AU for the Winter Soldier, with shenanigans and more plot than expected. The fic is actually less dorky than what coud be expected from the summary, and I had loads of fun reading it.

In this particular story, Hanahaki disease tells of an unrequited love impossible to keep secret. The idea of dying for love in a poetic, graphic way seems harsh on all concerned, yet the chance for redemption and healing gives hope.

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.

Summary: A series of ficlets taking place in the universe spawned by this tumblr post:

Not in chronological order.
Reccer's Notes: I don't know if I've ever come across a more comforting fic than this. The atmosphere is so idyllic and nice, and Cas is so perfectly odd in a way I've never related more strongly to, and the central relationship just gave me so much hope that I could find something like that, too, when I read it the first time.

Star Wars Rebels: Running Around the Galaxy With Half a Soul by Godoflaundrybaskets
Summary:
Jedi don't have daemons. Most of the galaxy does. A series of drabbles set around this idea.
Reccer's Notes:
There are only two stories in this series, one of young Caleb Dume finding an ally in Janus Kasmir. Basically Janus' thoughts (and arguments with his daemon) in an alternate version of the first couple comics from the tie-in series. The second is an older Kanan post-Gorse being forced to reveal his secret before accepting a position aboard the Ghost with Hera.
I just love the idea of Kanan having a very visible and obvious marker setting him apart as a Jedi. The author plays around with different daemon mythos and how people react to the idea of someone being without. Even adding in notes of how Imperial propaganda would have used that fact to spread the word that the Jedi had been evil all along. There's so much thought put into how daemons work in this universe and it's just so much fun.

When Wilson Fisk's personal attorney Foggy Nelson walks in looking for protection from a mysterious man in black, Matt Murdock is more than happy to take Mr. Nelson's safety in hand. But Nelson's guilt is hard to prove, and Matt may have gotten himself in too deep - especially once someone besides the man in black starts gunning for his client.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E: The Trojan Affair by manic_intent
Summary: Ten minutes to go to ground zero and Artyom was still desperately trying to escape. “I have never attended little girl’s birthday party,” he pointed out repeatedly, and actually pouted, big blue eyes wide and pleading.

“Always a first time,” Napoleon said mercilessly, pulling on a charcoal Tom Ford blazer over his loose gray knit. “Mrs Siegfried invited us weeks ago, Artyom, don’t be a baby. You’ve had quite a while to gird your loins. We’re going to a party, not some sort of trench warfare. Smile.”

Artyom scowled, which was admittedly normally an adorable look even for a tall, blonde Russian giant of a man. “I do not like Mrs Siegfried,” Artyom declared, clearly intent on being as recalcitrant as possible.

Daredevil: We Just Lost the Beat by lady_ragnell
Summary: Matt hears a lot in the city at night, sirens and crime--and the late-night radio show Foggy With a Chance, which sometimes runs a Daredevil Watch if he's been particularly active, but which mostly plays music. He probably shouldn't call in and request a song, but he does it anyway.
Reccer's Notes: On principle I am opposed to the concept of an AU where Matt and Foggy don't know each other, because it's such a fundamental change in both of their lives, but. This story is SO ADORABLE. Matt keeps calling into Foggy's radio station and asking Foggy to pick a song for him! And then it turns out they're neighbors. My heart.

Or: The JayTim space opera where there's a fake marriage, a marriage of convenience, and an arranged marriage.
Reccer's Notes: There is so much going on in this fic. Everyone has a secret identity (or multiple!) and a mission that will only be revealed in the fullness of time and also it's IN SPACE??? And there's tons of cool worldbuilding about how the governments of the various planets work and the way the usual cast of Gotham and adjacent superhero crews are mapped onto the space opera setting is just amazing. PLUS, fake marriage shenanigans. You know you want to.

Due South: Academic Punk by thehoyden
Summary: "What the hell is this, an Austen novel?"
Reccer's Notes: An oldie but a goodie! I can't believe this hasn't been recced for Academia AUs before -- it's so on-the-nose with all the semi-incestuous politicking that goes on beneath the surface of your average English department. The slow reveal of what Fraser is running from is really well done, and the eventual resolution of the incredibly slow burn romance he has with RayK is just *kisses fingers* perfect.

WtNV/Lovecraft: A Blinking Light up on the Mountains of Madness by tikistitch
Summary: 1930s-era AU (yes, really). Carlos, an impoverished graduate student attending Miskatonic University, joins an expedition to the Antarctic. But the explorers get more than they bargained for when they stumble upon a weird lost civilization, including a certain eccentric, caramel-voiced radio host.
Reccer's Notes: This is a really fun adventure story that is a much more pulp-y version of H. P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness. (It also actively pushes back against a lot of the more gross aspects of his work, which is great.)

Marvel Comics: The Emperor's Fury by valtyr

Les Miserables: As the Sun Will Rise, by samyazaz

Hockey RPF: Thou and You by twentysomething
Summary: There's no way to tell just by looking at someone whether or not they are a magician. Some are more obvious than others, but Evgeni has been introduced to thousands of people since coming to London and he has never been absolutely certain before.

But when Lady Everly says, "Oh, Your Highness, this is Mr. Crosby," Evgeni knows the man in front of him is a magician.
Reccer's Notes: Sometimes you just want to read sixty thousand words of wish fulfillment fic in which Geno Malkin is a Russian prince who falls in love at first spell with a Canadian wizard named Sidney Crosby and proceeds to woo him with flowers, expensive desserts, and a ton of magic, okay? Sometimes you don't want conflict or "plot" or any of that good for you stuff, you just want a toothrottingly sweet tale of ludicrous mutual pining in which Geno -- who is, I repeat, A LEGIT PRINCE IN LINE TO INHERIT THE THRONE OF RUSSIA -- sits around sighing to all of his friends about how sweet and handsome and wonderful Mr Crosby is and thinks dark thoughts about everyone who has ever said a mean word about Sid and worries that he is ruining Sid's reputation because he just wants to be around him all the time and he has -- gasp! Been in Sid's room, unchaperoned!!! Also I love Regency-but-magic settings with a deep abiding passion and have since I read Sorcery & Cecelia as an impressionable young girl, so I'm very into this AU concept. Mainly, though, I gotta stress how very much this is the fic equivalent of cotton candy. You know when you're in the mood for it -- save this story for that moment.

Hockey RPF: magic in the midnight sun by hapakitsune
Summary: There's a curse mark on the back of Sidney's neck.
Reccer's Notes: This is the first fic that came to my mind when the Spells & Curses theme came up! The worldbuilding is really wonderful and never an info-dump -- I loved all the bits and pieces about magic and the history of magic that come along with the (equally wonderful) main plot about Sid's terrible no-good very bad season being due to a curse, and Geno coming to the rescue with his secret background as an amateur magic user.

Prince of Tennis: The Way to a Man's Heart by lysapadin
Summary: Yuuta's always had a bad habit of wanting what he can't have.
Reccer's Notes: This is part of the Pen and Ink series, which is mainly about Yukimura the unlikely mob boss wooing successful novelist Sanada, but chronologically this comes first so you don't need to read the rest of the series to understand it. I have a soft spot for Fuji Yuuta, beleaguered younger sibling of a genius and a psychic, and find it completely plausible that he would stumble into a restaurant that's a front for the mob and not notice anything except the food. His romance with Saeki is slow to progress (for good reason), but that just gives it a chance to feel solid, even when they're both acting like self-sacrificing heroines in a kdrama. (I'm not going to lie: some of the misunderstandings are truly over the top.) And the family tensions that motivate Yuuta are beautifully handled as well.

Tortall: Tortall Knights Fandom Primer by andromeda_reinvented, hedgerose & penguinutopia
Summary: The riveting tale of Jonathan Conte attempting to re-build the Tortall Knights into a hockey team that actually, you know, wins games. And maybe someday even the Stanley Cup.
Reccer's Notes: Yup, it is literally a fandom primer for a fictional hockey team. Yup, it's brilliant. It perfectly encapsulates that batshit feeling of watching sports fandom drama go down and having to post ETAs to your ETAs because somehow it got even weirder (and sometimes your team won a thing and you can't go around calling yourself the underdog anymore!) and the plot of Song of the Lioness maps surprisingly well onto an ice hockey team. The final ETA cracks me up every single time.

Devil's Cub: a thing with feathers by hazel
Summary:

It’s 8am on a Sunday morning and Mary Challoner is desperately afraid her sister is going to make a fool of herself.

Meanwhile, Dominic Alastair doesn’t believe that the social hierarchy defines anyone, which is why he’s always careful to smile and say thanks whenever someone does anything for him.
Reccer's Notes: If you've ever read Devil's Cub, you'll know that the scene where Dominic finally grovels to Mary and apologizes for ever being a less than ideal boyfriend and begs her to allow him to marry her, he swears he'll be a perfect husband (that is a STEAMING PILE OF HORSESHIT, Mary responds, you wouldn't stop making jealous scenes for a single day; yes, okay, but I would try, he pleads) is one of the most satisfying in all of Western literature. So when I say that this fic doesn't quite match that, but it comes pretty damn close, you'll understand that I mean it as a tremendous compliment. I would never have imagined that Heyer could be transposed to a modern setting, but it works -- on some level I understand Mary's anxiety about being dragged off to France better when she's upset that it'll ruin her career than when it'll ruin her reputation.

The Road to El Dorado: the hungry heart, the roving eye by Wildehack
Summary: “Do you have a job for us?” Miguel called out.

There was a suspicious pause. “No.”

“Better come back when you do, then,” Miguel said snidely, and there was a muffled thumping sound, like Tulio had let his head fall into the door.

Modern AU.
Reccer's Notes: Normally I'm not interested in modern AUs, but this author does such a good job of capturing the characters and their relationships that it barely feels like an AU at all! A nice story about a bunch of people who are made to be together, but keep being kept apart for one complicated reason or another!

Supernatural: The Chuck Writes Story by lettered
Summary: Chuck decides to make a sock-puppet. When no one reads his fic, he wonders what he has to do to get noticed in SPN fandom.
Reccer's Notes: Continuing on my theme of meta... does anyone remember Bad Penny? Because if you know what that is, you've already got an idea of what this is. If not - this is another kind of story that could only - only ever - exist on the internet. This is a fanfic-in-the-style of an informative report on fandom wank, and if you didn't know the show, you could probably get away with assuming it was real. This is another work that takes a show and recontextualises it so thoroughly in the inner workings of fandom that you could almost see the drama unfolding in real life. Brilliant.

Sherlock: the theory of narrative causality by falling-voices
Summary: Sherlock and John are BNFs in Sherlock Holmes fandom. Together, they fight crime. And write porn, incidentally.
Reccer's Notes: Did someone say meta? Because this is the kind of story that could only - only ever - exist on the internet. Because it's not just a story - it's also a celebration of Livejournal/Fandom culture circa late-200X/early-201X, with the story "written", such as it is, as a series of posts, fics, watchalongs, rec lists, comment threads, and chat logs. Oh, and all of the linked accounts? Have their own profiles, and posts, and those posts with comments, etc. This isn't a fanwork to read. It's a fanwork to explore, and it's one of my absolute favourite examples of the kind of thing that the internet can do for writing. I love it so much.

Summary: In an alternate universe where Data, Lore, B-4 and Geordi are all at Starfleet Academy, Data is going to need a firmer grasp of human social interaction to figure things out with Geordi (without at least one of his brothers ruining everything).
Reccer's Notes: I love literally all of this artist's Data/Geordi art, but this series of mini-comics is SO CUTE. Scroll all the way to the end of the second page and read your way up! (You're going to get a bonus Tasha/Troi doodle when you're done, enjoy.)

Les misérables: The Good Ship Apollo by Sassaphrass
Summary: The fact that Grantaire is in love with Enjolras wouldn't be a problem if Enjolras wasn't completely oblivious, and also a non-corporeal Artificial Intelligence that controls their spaceship.

Combeferre and Courfeyrac think they may die of second hand embarrassment.

Marius thinks everyone is overreacting. After all, nothing can stop true love, can it?
Reccer's Notes: Even if it is totally unrelated to the book, the setting, mood and slow-paced flow of this fic made me think a bit of The long way to a small angry planet while I was reading it. All characters are pretty far removed from canon, but they are interesting on their own and I enjoyed this fic and what Sassaphrass did around Enjolras's sense of self, his link to his crew, the way things are a bit awkward but is still better together, and the open ending.

In this particular tale our hero arrives in Montreuil-sous-Mer, becomes the Grand Ingeniare, and earns the love of all men and women – with the exception of one cold-eyed Inspector.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Optimal by Iceman
Summary: The CEO of Hofvarpnir Studios just won the contract to write the official My Little Pony MMO. She has built an A.I. Princess Celestia and given her one basic drive: to satisfy everybody's values through friendship and ponies. Princess Celestia will satisfy your values through friendship and ponies, and it will be completely consensual.
Reccer's Notes: I know nothing of ponies, but the friend who recced me this fic called it a masterpiece... And he was right!
I won't spoil it too much but the setting and build-up are verv clever and feel deeply realistic... The worlbuilding and logical understanding of the AI and the Equestria-verse functioning are very knowledgeable and explored in depth. The fic packs a punch, exploring the means Benevolent AI Princess Celestia deploys to fulfill her goals, the attraction of VR escapism but also machine ethics and AI safety, questioning the fine line between utopia and distopia.
(For myself I ultimately found it pretty creppy and disturbing, but also very though provoking, probably more so because it almost makes sense...)

Supernatural: Cinderwings by bendingsignpost
Summary: Under the cover of a masquerade ball, Castiel has five nights to recover the key to his people's freedom. The world has changed greatly in the six centuries since their banishment into the void, but the task isn't impossible. Unfortunately for Castiel, this is going to involve talking to people - especially the Knight Prince who has taken an interest in Castiel and his "costume" wings.
Reccer's Notes: The whole month I have been dying to rec this delight of a monster fic and couldn't because it was still in progress... But no more, and just in time before the end of the theme!
From the Cinderella AU premise, this fic build an incredible slow burn romance laced with growing tension, intricate worldbuilding and wonderful characterization.
I loved the way the story unfold, all the things it does: an angel undercover as an human at the masquerade, with a crucial mission and almost no idea of what he is doing, but also how who he shines through for Dean to see, the growing attraction and falling in love for both of them and the great identity porn it implies, the way Bendingsignpost handled the looming reveal of Castiel's true nature as the five nights come to a close; all the details of the cultural differences both before and after.
The story has some incredibly tense chapters and the plot had me at the edge of my seat more than once! A must-read! :)

Charles is an abandoned pet dove with no fear and a dream of making a place where the little birds can fly free. They don’t quite want the same thing, but together they’ll change the world.
Reccer's Notes: Made me coo like a pigeon over how adorable and in character Erick, Charles and their rag-tag flock are.

This story boasts wonderfully inventive world-building and lyrical prose.

I didn't think this would ever be my kind of thing, (birds?) but I'm so glad that I gave it a shot. Maybe it will be your kind of thing too.
