ratcreature: RatCreature as Spock (trek)
I just posted my seventh and last Star Trek TOS fanart rec over at [community profile] fanart_recs. You can browse them under the Star Trek TOS tag, and surprisingly I ended up reccing not a single K/S piece, but only gen and het stuff.

I'm not completely sure yet whether I'll rec in January or pause and do a set in February, but next on my list will likely be Lord of the Rings fanart. However in January others have signed up to rec Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, Final Fantasy VII, Harry Potter, Inception, Hellsing, OZ (HBO), Stargate Atlantis and Supernatural, so you should definitely subscribe, if you haven't already.
ratcreature: RL? What RL? RatCreature is a net addict.  (what rl?)
Last month I recced Merlin over at [community profile] fanart_recs (five recs in total, the sixth unfortunately vanished shortly after I checked my link in a weird coincidence so I took the rec down).

This month I'm going to rec Star Trek: The Original Series fanart there. I've just posted my first rec.
ratcreature: RatCreature as Linus: Dear Great Pumpkin,... (halloween)
I posted my sixth and last Star Trek Reboot fanart rec over at [community profile] fanart_recs (you can browse them under the Star Trek Reboot tag). In November I'm going to rec Merlin fanart there, and others have signed up to rec ATLA, Bandom, Dragon Age: Origins, Harry Potter, Hetalia, Marvel, Sailor Moon, Sherlock Holmes, and SGA, so you should definitely subscribe, if you haven't already. And maybe sign up to rec your fandom in December or January!

And happy Halloween, if you celebrate it. :)

Avatar the Last Airbender

Enslaved by sharkflip. Het, Katara/Zuko. WIP (ca. 98,000 words so far)
In this AU Zuko is captured by the Water Tribe and adapts. It's still a WIP and I'm enjoying the worldbuilding with the Water Tribe, though I'd really like to find out more about when and how the war went differently in the past on the larger scale. Still, it's very enjoyable.

Merlin

The Peasant King, by a8c_sock. Slash and some het, Merlin/Arthur, Balinor/Hunith. (ca. 37,000 words)
This rec comes with the caveat that the story misses the final editing polish (I'm not assuming this merely because of the remaining typos, but because some beta notes in brackets are still in the posted version), so you need a certain level of tolerance for this. However the premise is quite cool in that Ygraine survives rather than Uther, and flees with her infant son to protect him from the ensuing chaos. Arthur grows up with Merlin and Will, and eventually he tries to win back his throne.

The Young Dragonlord, by Eldee. Gen, with some background Balinor/Hunith and Uther/Ygraine. (ca. 58,000 words)
In this AU Balinor stuck around to raise Merlin. I enjoyed both the background story and how this changed the present.

Post hoc, ergo propter hoc ('After this, therefore because of this') , by hitome_bore. Slash, Merlin/Arthur. (ca. 95,000 words)
This mixes Merlin with The Sword in the Stone, that is Arthur finally finding out about Merlin's magic has gone horribly wrong, so Merlin decides to time travel and befriend a younger Arthur as his teacher.

Arcane Asylum, by new_kate. Slash, Merlin/Arthur, Merlin/Edwin. (ca. 126,000 words)
I can only rarely get into Modern AUs in Merlin, but this one has great worldbuilding. It still has magic and prophecy and all the fun stuff, and both characters and certain plot elements form the series were transplanted well into the present day, without it seeming forced or too contrived.

Numb3rs

Lucky by Leah Harper. Gen. (ca. 24,500 words)
In this AU Don and Charlie's estrangement lingers longer, and I enjoyed this angstier version of their relationship.

Sherlock

Asterioidea and Highly Intelligent, Observant, and Destructive When Bored, by etothepii. Gen, Sherlock and Mycroft, and Slash, Sherlock/Watson. (ca. 1,850 and 5,000 words)
This is a His Dark Materials fusion with a great twist.

Star Trek: Reboot

Homo homini lupus, by Casspeach and Chaosraven. Slash, McCoy/Chekov. (ca. 13,600 words)
This is a Viking AU done as collaboration for the Trek Reverse Bang. The art was lovely, and Bones as somewhat reluctant Viking raider was great.

Knives in the Water, by green_postit and steam_pilot. Slash Kirk/McCoy. (ca. 18,500 words)
This is a collaboration done for the Trek Reverse Bang, and the art is very stylish, with a stark, noir-like atmosphere. The story is a gangster AU, and it had me really hooked, even though I'm normally not that into Star Trek AUs not somehow still set in space. It convinced me of them as mob for the duration of the story, and how Bones was drawn into this was great. Also, normally I don't emphasize warnings again in my recs that the header gives, but the warning for torture and abuse on the story is really not kidding, it was great, but brutal and intense.

Like A Riot (Don't Need Order), by Jane Potter. Slash, mainly Kirk/Spock. (Some stories are finished, but the universe is still a WIP.)
In this AU Vulcan is isolationist, and Earth has an alliance with the Orions. Meanwhile Kirk, Spock & Co. set out to become space pirates. The universe is still a WIP and I like the first story more than some of the later parts, and some of the characterization (in particular of McCoy as this kind of alcoholic) doesn't really work for me, however this is still quite a lot of fun to read.

In Which We Change, by salvaged_pride. Slash, Kirk/McCoy. (ca. 14,160 words)
This is a AU with Kirk as werewolf, and I really like the werewolf premise here that the wolf is not aware of the human self, and how it was handled.

X-Men

The Uncertain Trumpet, by bliumchik. Het, Scott/Jean. (ca. 525 words)
This is just a short comment fic, but with the cool premise that the material for Scott's glasses hadn't been developed, and yet he still manages as a member of the X-Men in the field (through his connection to Jean) while truly blind.
ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
My RL is rather stressful at the moment, and since yesterday I have a nasty cold on top of everything else. (Thanks a lot, body. Not.) Anyway last night I woke several times both from shivers as well as from weird suffocation nightmares in which I peeled sticky layers of mucus out of my throat (even though my cough and sore throat aren't all that bad, certainly not bad enough to hinder breathing, but the phlegm is the hard-to-cough-up kind, so my throat feels constantly icky and covered in something, which is what I assume manifested itself in my dreams in even worse ways :P). </gross tmi>

However, as I've spent the morning so far huddling under my blanket drinking fluids and dosing myself with paracetamol in hopes it'll help with the muscle aches and the shivering, I used that time to compile some AU recs:


Merlin
Leashed, by Riventhorn. Slash, Arthur/Merlin. (ca. 12,800 words)
The premise here is that Uther doesn't kill all sorcerers but enslaved some. Admittedly slavefic AU with mindcontrol elements is sort of like catnip as far as my kinks go, but this is not a kink wallow.

Numb3rs

Sacrifices of the Keeper, by Pygmymuse. Gen. (ca. 28,340 words)
In this AU Don and Charlie's parents are killed in a car accident, when Charlie is still a teenager.

Stargate: Atlantis

Strangers When We Meet, by Jendavis. Slash, John Sheppard/Ronon Dex. (ca. 14,000 words)
In this AU the expedition encounters a Sateda that didn't fall. I really like how the society was developed here, and seeing different aspects of Ronon.

Star Trek: Reboot

Take Refuge in What You Know, by Corpus Invictus. Slash, Kirk/Spock. WIP
Kirk and Spock are neighbors, and Spock is agoraphobic. Which sounds like a weird premise, but I'm enjoying how their relationship develops here, and the story makes this work.

Walls Burning, Towers Turning, by Leftarrow. Slash, Kirk/Pike. (ca. 5,000 words)
This is a fantasy AU with really neat worldbuilding.

Fighting Gravity, by Pantswarrior. Slash, Kirk/Spock. (ca. 138,700 words)
In this AU Spock doesn't join the Enterprise for its first mission. He and Kirk run into each other on earth afterwards, and this story slowly develops their relationship and reveals the backstory of what happened to Spock.

The Will of the Force, by Verizonhorizon. Slash, Kirk/Spock. WIP
This is a fusion with Star Wars, with Vulcans as Jedi.

Supernatural

My Life's Come Off Its Tracks, by mimblexwimble. Gen. (ca. 28,700 words)
In this AU Dean gets sick as a child, forcing the Winchesters to adjust. We see events from through Sam's eyes and I find good children's POVs really rare, but this one worked for me.
ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
I should not let my rec pages languish this long. It gets ever more intimidating to go through the backlog, with the pile becoming larger and my memories fuzzier...

Stargate: Atlantis

I, Rodney, by [livejournal.com profile] alex51324. Gen. (ca. 42,100 words)
A robot AU with Rodney as a robot. I especially liked that Rodney's "childhood" was not actually over the top tragic as far as fictional childhoods go (especially for AIs), despite his estrangement from his father/creator and family, and also that in retrospect his grown up perspective eventually evolves from the angry teenage AI.

Calling Down the Lightning by [livejournal.com profile] dreamwaffles. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 55,500 words)
In this AU magic is real, however because of its huge destructive potential people capable of doing magic get preemptively executed on Earth, so magic users try to hide their abilities, usually not with much luck as it manifests first for emotionally volatile teenagers. I enjoyed the premise and world quite a lot here.

No Good Deed, by [livejournal.com profile] forestgreen. Slash, John Sheppard/Cameron Mitchell. (ca 65,620 words)
John as a thief is just a fun premise.

A Wing and a Prayer, by [livejournal.com profile] kriadydragon. Gen. (ca. 97,150 words)
An AU with dragon companions, how could I not like that? Okay, I guess some may argue dragons are overdone, but I like them still. Besides, this is a really solid action adventure, so you might want to give it a try, even if the dragons don't sell it to you.

Mercy of the Fallen, by [livejournal.com profile] perryvic and [livejournal.com profile] zaganthi. Slash, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard/Carson Beckett (ca. 102,000 words)
Another magic AU, this time with Sheppard as warlock (there are other magical powers as well). I enjoyed this one because the mix of supernatural elements with the Stargate-kind of pseudoscience worked really well for me, and I liked the action too.

If not by faith, then by the sword: five happy endings for Teyla and Michael, by [personal profile] saraht. Het, Teyla Emmagan/Michael. (ca. 9,500 words)
These AU scenarios for Teyla and Michael were all cool possibilities, though they did not actually all match my own definition of "happy". I especially liked the fourth AU scenario which was a role-reversal.

Untitled Snippet, by [personal profile] saraht. Het, John Sheppard/Teyla Emmagan, Teyla Emmagan/Michael. (ca. 2,185 words)
I've recced Diplomatic Immunity before, but you may have missed this more recent snippet set in the same creepy universe.

Star Trek: Reboot

Love is Strange by [personal profile] garryowen. Slash, Kirk/Spock. (ca. 45,000 words)
I did not actually like Dirty Dancing as a movie, so I'm not sure why I really enjoyed the Star Trek version, or how it could even work with Spock and Kirk, but there you are, and it really does, and you should check this out. Whether or not you liked Dirty Dancing. (Also thinking about this, it is rather disconcerting to realize that I know people in fandom now plenty old enough to have been writing porn for some years, who weren't even alive back when that movie came out, and a ton of my classmates were crushing on Patrick Swayze, who is now dead. Memento Mori moments everywhere.)

all the lights that lead us there, by [livejournal.com profile] irnan. Gen. (ca. 1,880 words)
This is a cool sentient!Enterprise story.

All the Past We Leave Behind, by [livejournal.com profile] northatlantic. Slash and het, Kirk/McCoy, Spock/Uhura. (ca. 22,500 words)
This is a Western AU and still manages to transfer the characters and even the movie plot well.

Emissary: The Illustrated Pilot, by [personal profile] tassosss. Gen. (ca. 2,000 words)
This is a fusion with Farscape, and simply awesome, because the Enterprise as Leviathan and Spock as pilot make me happy.

Another Boy, Another Planet, by [livejournal.com profile] vaingirlfic. Het, Kirk/Uhura, Spock/Uhura (with implied past Nero/Kirk non-con). (ca. 8,200 words)
This was posted to the het_idcrack challenge for a reason, so whether you'll like it probably depends on what your buttons are. However it pushed a lot of mine. In this AU newborn Kirk was captured and enslaved by Nero, and eventually during the events that parallel the movie Uhura rescues him. Her backstory is different as well, but I do not want to spoil it too much.

Leave No Soul Behind, by [livejournal.com profile] whochick. Slash, Kirk/Spock. (WIP, 30,000 words posted so far, projected to be 72,000+)
This is still a WIP but I'm really enjoying it. It has Kirk, Spock and McCoy in Starfleet, but as part of some emergency service who rescue survivors of battles and the like. The worldbuilding and background for the characters is still becoming clearer as this progresses, but Vulcan was destroyed by the Narada in this universe as well. And there is plenty of action adventure mixed with personal angst. Anyway, it has me completely hooked.

Star Trek: TOS

Shadows of a Man, by [livejournal.com profile] syredronning. Slash, Spock/McCoy. (ca. 32,000 words)
The basic premise is that Kirk and McCoy did not get rescued from Rura Penthe, and a war between Federation and Klingons followed. And this deals with the later aftermath for McCoy and Spock. On the one hand I don't want to spoil this, on the other hand the main reason I'm reccing this was that it did not go like I expected from the way the story seemed at first. In the end it left me somewhat sucker-punched, if in a good way. (I hope that was vague enough.) And on the whole it is quite a bit darker than what I usually rec (starting with that Kirk is dead from the outset, and character death is not my thing usually). However it is not completely bleak, and worth reading.
ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
Doubt, by ALEO. Gen, Don Eppes. (ca. 8,300 words)
Numb3rs/Supernatural
I recced the previous two stories in this series already (Unexplained and Explained), and this one is a good read too. The Supernatural world functions more as a vehicle for Don-whump than as equal crossover partner in this one, but it's not as if I dislike seeing Don hurt, and angst while he adjusts his worldview to the supernatural.

Unwilling Oracle, by Beatrice Otter. Gen, John Crichton, Kira Nerys. (ca. 1,870 words)
Farscape/Star Trek: Deep Space 9
This has a really cool premise meshing the wormhole mythologies.

Angels in the Architecture , by Davincis_girl. (ca. 12,000 words)
Supernatural/Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
I think the two universes are a great mix, especially when it comes to the various teenage experiences of growing up with pseudo-military training, and here John Connor travels back to 1999 and gets the teenaged Sam and Dean to help him.

Downloaded series, by Ennyousai. Slash and het, Kirk/McCoy, Scotty/Six. WIP (for the series, the stories are finished)
Battlestar Galactica (2003)/Star Trek: Reboot
I'm not familiar with BSG, but the author's notes said it would work if you just knew ST and it did work great as a Star Trek AU.

The Time Has Come to Be Gone, by Jujuberry136. Gen. (ca. 28,950 words)
Criminal Minds/Supernatural
I enjoy stories with the Criminal Minds team meeting and dealing with the Winchesters, and this one is a good action/case story.

The Mutant Problem, by Katt. Gen. (ca. 7,900 words)
Spider-Man/X-Men
This is a very cool multimedia fanfic in the form of a fictional photo essay by Peter Parker.

Pigs in Spaaaaaaaace, by Kayim. (ca. 2,580 words)
Muppets/Star Trek
How could I not love a crossover between Star Trek and Pigs in Space?

For I Have Been a Stranger in a Foreign Land, by Mortigi_tempo. Slash, Kirk/Spock. WIP (ca. 10,000 words so far)
Dune/Star Trek: Reboot
This is a very cool crossover setup. Kirk and Spock get stranded on Arrakis.

Northern Lights, by Se_parsons. Gen. (ca. 9,700 words)
Supernatural/The X-Files
In this one we get an outsider POV of the Winchester family as Mulder and Scully run into them during an investigation.

To Become Immortal, First You Have to Die, by ShadowLoverK. Gen. (ca. 3,200 words)
Highlander/Star Trek: Reboot
Kirk is an immortal and has his first death from an allergic reaction during the movie.

Abnormal Psychology (ca. 1,440 words) and A Sam Adams Moment (ca. 1,500 words), by Siriaeve. Gen, Sweets, John Sheppard.
Bones/Stargate: Atlantis
Sweets working for the SGC is just an awesome and funny premise.

A Thousand Pages, by Tartanshell. Gen, Scott Summers, Matt Murdock. (ca. 6,250 words)
Daredevil/X-Men
In this Matt and Scott were penpals fo a while as teenagers, then meet again as adults.
ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
Harry Potter

House Colours, by Sarka. Slash, Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy. (ca. 12,800 words)
This is a Slytherin!Harry with Gryffindor!Draco AU, and I really enjoyed it, not least because it had a Ron who was first friends with Draco and then Harry, rather than the Ron-bashing that is so depressingly common in Slytherin!Harry stories.

Stargate: Atlantis

Snakeheads: A Love Story, by Leah. Slash, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard/OMC. (ca. 17,600 words)
I never really expected to read a John/Rodney/Goa'uld threesome, but this was written by Leah, so of course I gave it a try, and wasn't disappointed. This one was far more fun than you'd expect with this setup.

The Little Sister, by Martha. Slash, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard. WIP
I like film noir AUs, and ever since Vegas I like seeing Sheppard as down on his luck detective even more, but what makes this AU great is that the alternate reality is still based on Stargate. The setup is really intriguing, and I like that in it the Goa'uld were smarter in their take over of earth, smart enough that the majority doesn't even think of them as bad guys.

Strange Aeon, by Slybrarian. Slash, Sheppard/Mitchell, Sheppard/Lorne. WIP (ca. 32,000 words so far)
How could anyone resist a mix of Lovecraftian space monsters and with Stargate? The series is still a WIP, and I'm really enjoy how this is subtly different from canon, and the world building and hints of mythology so far have me hooked. And I like Cam in Atlantis.

To the Wide Outposts (ca. 7,490 words) and The Known From the Unknown (ca. 12,000 words), by Vain_glorious. Gen, Ronon Dex, John Sheppard.
I've recced the other two stories in this series (Where the Ways Divide and In the Nights When I Am Lone) already, but in case you missed these two that have been posted since my last recs update, it doesn't hurt to point the 'verse out again. In it Sheppard has been made a runner by the Wraith and is found and taken in by Ronon and his Satedan squad.

Star Trek: Reboot

Open Up My Eager Eyes, by June. Slash and femslash, Kirk/Spock, Uhura/Gaila. (ca. 15,000 words)
This is a fusion with Pump Up the Volume that was written for [livejournal.com profile] reel_startrek. I really enjoyed this, even though I'm not particularly into high school AUs or into making Spock a human/loosing the SF elements in Trek fiction.

Lensflare Lover, by Leftarrow. Het, Pike/Enterprise, Pike/Number One. (ca. 7,300 words)
This has a cool premise in which the spaceships have avatars.

In Truth, by Mint_amaretto. Slash and het, Kirk/McCoy, Spock/Uhura. (ca. 3,570 words)
This is a really creepy, twisted AU, as any mix with the Dollhouse concept (not the series itself, more the basic premise) should be.

The Sky Was Made for Us Tonight, by Waketosleep. Slash, Kirk/Spock. (ca. 5,500 words)
In this AU Vulcans decided to supervise humanity more closely, and Kirk and Spock are delinquent rebels together after meeting in a holding cell and staging a prison break. I enjoyed this scenario a lot.

Supernatural

Untitled SPN Snippet, by Cofax. Gen. (ca. 1,300 words)
I wanted this to be longer and an apocafic epic rather than a snippet, but the world building was still interesting.

Teufelshunde, by July. Gen. WIP
In this AU Sam and Dean grow up with a foster parent after John has been arrested. I really like the OC and the structure with the flashbacks here works for me, even though flashbacks aren't my favorite things.

Rain Falling Down, by Maychorian. Gen, Bobby, Castiel, Jimmy, Dean, John. WIP (the series, individual stories are finished, ca. 20,000 words so far)
In this AU Castiel travels back in time to prevent the apocalyse, but things go wrong and he gets stuck in his host as a kid without his full powers, and lots of angst and h/c ensue.

And Burn the Long-liv'd Phoenix in her Blood, by Tabaqui. Gen. (ca. 6,800 words)
In this AU Mary survives, but they still hunt. I enjoyed the setup and look at their lives.
ratcreature: RatCreature as Spock (trek)
As You Are, by [livejournal.com profile] 13empress. Slash, Kirk/Spock. (ca. 10,700 words)
I don't often rec PWPs, but this one has a really cool perspective, in that it is alien-kink, but from Spock's POV, so the humans are the ones looked at through the xenobiology lense. The AU premise (though I guess it could converge with canon) is that before Spock attends Starfleet Academy he wants to have a human sexual experience, as he has heard all kinds of things about human sexuality. So he spends a day with rentboy!Kirk. It's not humor, but not extremely angsty either.
ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
Stargate: Atlantis

Love Is a Long Long Road, by Hily and Telesilla. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 40,000 words)
If you like romance mixed with kink this AU is right for you. John and Rodney meet in college, get together and start a D/s relationship (with John as submissive). There are even two endings to choose from, one more fluffy, the other more angsty.

In the Nights When I am Lone, by Vain_glorious. Gen, John Sheppard, Ronon Dex. (2,768 words)
This is a sequel to the Where The Ways Divide, a short role reversal story in which Sheppard is a runner and found by Ronon and his Satedan squad, which I have recced previously. This story explores some more how Sheppard might fare on Sateda.

Black Mountainside, by Whizzy. Slash, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard. (ca. 66,000 words)
I've recced the Black Helicopters series before, but this new novel-length story has been posted since, so I thought I'd point it out again in case you missed it. In this AU Sheppard joined the SGC before Rodney, and then they meet when Sheppard crashes an alien craft in a test flight, and recruits Rodney.

Star Trek: Reboot

An Illogically Beautiful Mind, by Anonymous. Slash, Kirk/Spock. (ca. 5,100 words)
This is a fusion with Good Will Hunting.

A Little Left of Ordinary, by Anonymous. Slash, Kirk/Spock. WIP (ca. 6,300 words so far)
This one is a retelling of the movie in a vaguely steampunkish fantasy setting where magic also works. I really enjoy the worldbuilding so far.

Of Sentinels and Anchors, by Corpus Invictus. Slash, Kirk/Spock. (ca. 13,000 words)
The premise of this one is that Sarek died when Spock was young, so Amanda raised him on Earth and he lacks Vulcan training. As a result Spock has also problems controlling his telepathy. I really liked the Spock-angst and h/c. If you mind the "special mental bond" trope you might want to skip, but in that case Kirk/Spock is probably not your pairing anyway. I however have a soft spot for the same.

Nothing Lay Between, by Dancing Mercury and Jantra. Slash, Kirk/Spock, Pike/Spock. WIP (ca. 43,300 words so far)
Spock is given to Kirk by the Vulcans as a reward. The premise sounds as if it could only work if the setup is in alignment with your kinks, but this one actually has good worldbuilding, gradually gives background for the differences and isn't all that over the top when it comes to changing the characters.

The Hounds of Morrigan, by Hounds_morrigan. Het and slash, Kirk/Spock/Uhura. (ca. 20,000 words)
In this AU Nero was smart enough to destroy Vulcan, Earth and the Federation right away rather than wait for Spock to be able to gloat. The resulting apocafic universe is not that close to canon, but who could resist Uhura, Kirk, and Spock ending up as badass and somewhat traumatized crazy space pirates? It has the additional benefit of working for my slavefic kink and some others. On the flipside, if you don't share my fondness for a variety of non-con and power inequality kinks, you might not enjoy this as much.

Only Good for Legends, by Leupagus. Het and slash, Spock/Uhura and Kirk/Spock. WIP (ca. 19,300 words so far)
This takes place in the Star Trek universe, but Spock has become a police detective on Earth rather than joining Starfleet. I'm enjoying the worldbuilding and the bits of character background that have been revealed so far to explain the changes. It has some angst (the whole cynical detective aspect and some of Spock's backstory) but is also quite lighthearted and funny without being crack or parody.

Time's Divergence, by Logical_stimuli. Gen, Kirk, Spock Prime. (ca. 6,600 words)
This is domestic kidfic fluff that will make you feel warm and fuzzy: Spock comes through the wormhole at the same time as Nero, and because both of Kirk's parents are killed Spock raises Kirk.

Of Pilots And Groundbreaking Inventions, by Misfit_fandoms. Gen, Sulu (though the author labelled it as pre-Chekov/Sulu). (ca. 4,900 words) WIP?
The premise here is the Enterprise as a steampunk ship with an oddball crew. This feels more like a setup rather than an entire story, and the author said there might be more in this universe, but even as it is the atmosphere of this AU is neat and I enjoyed it as it is.

Twice Shy, by Sarka. Slash, Kirk/McCoy, implied Spock/Uhura. (ca. 20,000 words)
Bones is a werewolf, pining after Kirk. I never knew I wanted a Star Trek werewolf fic before reading this, but this was a fun scenario. It's a bit inconvenient to read posted as it is in a comment thread, and I hope the author will repost it elsewhere eventually. (eta: now available in in more convenient format)
ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
Seven Moments, by Barrowjane. Gen. (ca. 1,300 words)
Sandman/Star Trek: Reboot
There's just something about other characters meeting the Endless that I really enjoy, and this example of the genre is no exception.

Down The Rabbit Hole, by Bluflamingo. Slash, Colby/Lorne, Colby/Daniel. (ca. 10,000 words)
Numb3rs/Stargate: Atlantis/Stargate: SG-1
I like how this handles the relationships, the complications that come with dating outside of your secret alien conspiracy, and the way the SGC happens to tangle with the FBI here works for me too.

People Who Repair Quantums, or Five Planets The Enterprise Never Visited, by Ignipes. Gen. (ca. 2,800 words)
Star Trek: Reboot/Alien/Discworld/Doctor Who/Dune/Star Wars
I really enjoyed the crossovers for which I was familiar with the sources, also, while I don't know Discworld, the bit where Spock reacts to the flat disc and giant turtle and so on in space was awesome.

Bright White Light, by lilacsigil. Gen. (ca. 35,000 words)
Supernatural/X-Files
This is set during the X-Files episode "Fallen Angel", which I barely remembered, but the story still worked for me. We get the events of the episode but seen from the perspective (and worldview) of young Sam and Dean. I thought it was really cool how one side believes it's all aliens, and the other it's all supernatural and I was wondering what was really going on. And I liked Sam and Dean adventuring.

Exiles, by nwhepcat. Gen, Oz, Sam. WIP
The premise here is that Sam runs into Oz during Mystery Spot. I found this via Cofax and am really enjoying it so far. The parts are all quite short, but it is updated very often.

a fucking space opera (or Six Characters Who Didn't Board the USS Enterprise), by Oxoniensis. Gen. (3,169 words)
Star Trek: Reboot/Harry Potter/Merlin/Stargate Atlantis/Supernatural/Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
In the best tradition of wacky crossovers, this was simply a lot of fun.
ratcreature: Squee!! (squee!!)
[livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 just posted the last part of her awesome ST:AOS story Break (Spock/Uhura, ca. 26,000 words), which tells the story of Spock and Uhura's relationship from their first meeting to the end of the movie. You probably have all already read this or bookmarked it for reading anyway, but if not you really should.
