ratcreature: RatCreature is conflicted, and ponders under the influence of hovering angel- and devil-RatCreatures. (conflicted)
I've posted five Star Wars fanart recs in June over at [community profile] fanart_recs, but I'm not sure what or even whether I'll rec in July. On one hand I feel that after nine consecutive months of diligently posting four to six fanart recs I could use a break, OTOH it is sort of a habit now, so maybe I shouldn't break it. Also it's my comm, so there's this nagging feeling that I ought to help produce content for it.

Should I post fanart recs in July?

Some good crossovers I've read recently...

1967 Plymouth GTX Convertible, Black., by [livejournal.com profile] basingstoke. Slash, Dean/Gunn, Angel, Sam. (ca. 2,100 words)
Angel/Supernatural
This one is just a lot of fun. They first meet over anti-zombie supplies, there's banter, Sam and Angel are playing euchre... also Dean/Gunn!

Charm City by [livejournal.com profile] hth_the_first. Slash, Sam/Tim. (ca. 7,630 words)
Homicide: Life on the Streets/Supernatural
I've only watched Homicide sporadically, but the relationships here between Sam and Dean as well as Tim and Sam really pulled me in.

Today's Tom Sawyer (1/2) and (2/2), by [livejournal.com profile] ladyjanelly. Gen, Sam and Ben. (ca. 5,000 words)
Dark Angel/Supernatural
In 2009 Sam runs across Ben, just after the X5 children escaped from Manticore.

The People You Meet, by [livejournal.com profile] mandysbitch. Slash, Chris Keller/Rodney McKay. (ca. 8,300 words)
Oz/Stargate Atlantis
I rarely read crossovers when I just know one of the sources, but I followed a rec somewhere, and the story pulled me in. I have never actually watched any episode of Oz (so I can't judge Keller's characterization), but I think it is pre-series for Oz as well as for SGA. Anyway, it starts when Rodney gets robbed by Keller, and things get more complicated from there at a fast pace.

Case X-1743: Unresolved. by [livejournal.com profile] minisinoo. Het, Mulder/Scully, Jean/Scott. (ca. 24,500 words)
The X-Files/X-Men Movieverse
While still working on the X-Files Mulder and Scully investigate the incident at Scott's high school when his powers first manifested. Years later Mulder notices Scott during Jean's tv appearance and they meet again. The plot is mostly just about getting the characters together, but I really liked how the universes meshed here.

Untitled SGA/Traders series, by Sealie ([livejournal.com profile] jimandblair). Gen, John, Rodney, Carson, Grant.
Stargate Atlantis/Traders
This one is still a WIP, but so far I'm really enjoying it. It's a good take on the "Rodney and Grant are related" premise.

The Monster in the Closet, by Shaye ([livejournal.com profile] fourteenlines). Het, Rodney/Kaylee. (ca. 3,200 words)
Firefly/Stargate Atlantis
Rodney and Kaylee meet as prisoners of the Reavers, so it is rather dark.

Don't Mention the Wookies by [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon. Slash, McKay/Sheppard. (ca 1,400 words)
Stargate Atlantis/Star Wars
I waffled a bit whether this really counts as a real crossover, but I found its slightly wacky premise cute and funny, and it is definitely crossover-ish, so I included it in this rec set anyway.

I updated my AU recs page with the following recs:

DCU

The Compass That You Gave Me, by Zee ([livejournal.com profile] ficbyzee). Gen, Dick, Kon. (ca. 19,000 words)
What if Dick had found Superboy after he escaped from Cadmus Labs and taken him in?

Stargate: Atlantis

A Farm in Iowa and its sequel And Then There Was Finn, by Cate ([livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon). Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 12,000 and 8,000 words)
The idea to have John leave the military after some time in Antarctica, but before meeting O'Neill, just to move to a farm in Iowa he inherited from his grandfather may seem a bit odd, but in this case it really works. Since it's a slash story Rodney's car breaks down near John's farm, and a friendship starts to develop. This story is a delightful slowly building romance, fun to read, and has a great atmosphere with lots of vivid little details.

As Lost As You Get, by [livejournal.com profile] lilysaid. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 10,000 words)
This is an Epiphany AU. It is not a radical AU, but expands the episode so that after Rodney and the others arrive to rescue Sheppard not all villagers ascend promptly and the Atlantis team can't escape right away, but remains trapped for a while as well. That way the story gives us a look at how Sheppard has changed and at Ascension in general from Rodney's POV.

In the Zone, by [livejournal.com profile] littera_abactor. Gen, John Sheppard (though there's slash and het implied, Ronon Dex/Teyla Emmagan, John Sheppard/Ronon Dex and John Sheppard/Teyla Emmagan). (ca. 2,000 words)
It's a fusion with the concept of The Dead Zone. Here John Sheppard has been in a coma for seven years and now experiences psychic episodes when he touches people.

The Dark Side, by shalott ([livejournal.com profile] astolat). Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 7,450 words).
This is a fusion with Star Wars. Rodney is a Jedi, John a Sith, though both are a bit unconventional. This story has lot of great funny moments, and it's surprisingly non-angsty for a Jedi/Sith pairing, yet their respective backstories that we find out over the course of the story still make a lot of sense.

I added some more recs to my recs page, 22 in total this time (11 HP, 9 SGA, 1 SPN and 1 SW). And I'm still not through with my frelling recs bookmark folder. Argh.
ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
I updated my AU recs page. I'm still not through my pile of bookmarks, but I thought 25 new recs (3 for Batman Comics, 3 Harry Potter, 12 Stargate: Atlantis, 2 Star Wars, and 5 Supernatural) was a good place to stop for now.

Also I've been wondering whether my recs page is becoming too large and unwieldy with recs for all fandoms on the same page. What do you think, should I split it into sections or leave it as it is?
