ratcreature: RatCreature smokes Crack (crack)
Untitled Highlander AU/Andromeda, by [livejournal.com profile] basingstoke. Het and slash (though there's no romantic focus, so it feels quite gen), Richie/Amanda, Duncan/Methos. (ca. 2,900 words)
These are more glimpses at a universe than a fully realized story, but the setup is just very cool.

Necessary Changes, by [livejournal.com profile] devilc. Slash, Jason Street/Scott Summers, also Logan/Jean and some other pairings, both het and slash are implied. (ca. 24,000 words)
Friday Night Lights/X-Men
Jason discovers he's a mutant on top of everything else and is invited to attend the Xavier Institute. I'm really liking Jason here so far, and also his friendship with Tim, and of course I always have a soft spot for stories with Scott.
(It's still being posted, one part a day it seems, but the author's notes indicated it's finished and the total length, so in two days or so it should be completely posted.)

Days Like This, by [livejournal.com profile] killabeez. Gen, Angel, Dean Winchester. (ca. 9,200 words)
Dean and Angel meet on a hunt, and fight a gross, tentacled monster, but really the best thing in this story is the banter and the many great lines.

Untitled SGA/SPN snippets, by [livejournal.com profile] kitsune_tsuki WIP
So far more an enticing glimpse at a backstory and an opening snippet than a single story, but I thought the premise that Sheppard grew up as a hunter like Sam and Dean, and now encounters creepy supernatural stuff in Pegasus was cool.

To Conquer Fear, by [livejournal.com profile] marag. Gen, Gil Grissom, Batman and their teams. (ca. 2,800 words)
They work together to catch the Scarecrow in Las Vegas. The story is told mostly in emails and more on the fun than on the angst side of things.

Hailing From Parts Unknown, by [livejournal.com profile] sister_wolf. Slash, Logan (Wolverine)/Alec (X5-494). (ca. 3,500 words)
X-Men Movieverse/Dark Angel
Alec and Logan and cage fights. Why wouldn't you read this?

Office Hours (ca. 10,000 words) and the sequel The Wisdom to Know the Difference (ca. 30,000 words), by [livejournal.com profile] tartanshell. Gen, Peter Parker, Hank McCoy, Matt Murdock, and Scott Summers.
Peter meets Hank (at first not yet blue) as one of his biochemistry professors in college. This is just an awesome and very entertaining crossover, that has a great blend of humor and angst.

Floodlights on the Highway, by [livejournal.com profile] thassalia. Gen, Dean, Cam, Vala.
Stargate: SG-1/Supernatural
How could you not enjoy Cam and Vala meeting Dean at a car show?

Riggins & Winchester, by [livejournal.com profile] thisisbone. Slash, Tim Riggins/Dean Winchester, also Billy Riggins, Sam Winchester. (ca. 4,800 words)
Friday Night Lights/Supernatural
The Winchesters are passing through Dillon. This gives a great look at the characters, also of course it's hot.

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)
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.

...not literally (at least I hope not) but I've been even more unfocused today than usual. As one consequence of that there have been potential blog posts popping into my head, well more like beginnings of blog posts really, only to never quite reach the stage of sufficient content to turn into a real post. Okay, maybe the lecture about instruments to measure pressure in ultrahigh vacuums wasn't the best time to have really focused thoughts about the latest CSI episode (the one with the furries), but that kind of makes my point. I thought about furries and CSI (and the latest Angel, and old Teen Titans comics, and that obscure fandom secret santa project... you get the idea) instead of concentrating on advantages and disadvantages of the Penning manometer compared to other ionization manometers compared to gas friction manometers, and similar topics. And it wasn't the lecture, since my ability to concentrate hasn't been getting any better further into the day.

Anyway, here are (some of) the thoughts of my "not quite blog posts on their own" I had today, in no particular order:

  • I'm thrilled that [livejournal.com profile] tzikeh and [livejournal.com profile] astolat adapted the popslash secret santa idea for obscure fandoms in their "while we tell of yuletide treasure" project.
    Actually from the list of fandom and pairing suggestions/examples it seems to be a "not the most mainstream fandoms and pairings" secret santa rather than just really obscure ones. And I like plenty of smaller fandoms, so I'm fairly sure I'll get some great stories with fandoms and pairings I like out of it, even though I can't sign up myself with a request. Of course in particular I hope for cool Batfic to come out it.

  • I finally watched last week's Angel last night and was less than impressed. I thought about what more I could say about why I didn't like it, but I think it was mostly because I don't like Lorne that much in general, at least not as a main character, and because I was bored with the plot.

  • I watched the latest JL episode and joined the rest of fandom in the squee. So now it undeniable, I've apparently acquired yet another series I like (and why does this keep happening to me? I'm such a sucker, dangle a shiny thing in front of me, and next thing I know I'm watching cartoons and reading Flash/GL and Flash/Batman slash). So far I've watched all of the second season and the pilot of the first. I actually have a couple of episodes more, but haven't yet found the time to watch them.

  • Finally, about the latest CSI episode, spoilers for Fur and Loathing )

ratcreature: RatCreature watches tv. (tv)
I'm not too thrilled about either series anymore (nor totally bitter), but I had this thought about the two big evils this season, The First and Jasmine: They're both old, powerful, and intent on their plans, just a few hours drive apart, and obviously their concepts of doing "evil" are quite different. I've been wondering what might have happened if both "evils" had won, what then? Except for eating a couple of people every day Jasmine's world domination plan is all very HHJJ (in a pod-people way), and the result is a very controlled and organized situation, with all chaos (and with it freedom) gone, whereas from the little we've seen of the First's effects on the general population, i.e. when it's not trying to kill Slayers and potential Slayers and their allies, it's all about talking people to death terrifying people, culminating in totally uncontrolled chaos and death, so what would have happened if those two had clashed? They certainly wouldn't pool their resources...

ratcreature: RatCreature is confused: huh? (huh?)
I'm confused by the new Angel ep.

Spoilers for Angel 4x12 Calvary... )
ratcreature: RatCreature watches tv. (tv)
This season I've been wondering if the Buffy/Angel universes are still connected like they used to be. In earlier seasons there were those crossover episodes, and it really seemed as if the timelines in both series were concurrent, even if the casts were separate. But this season I've been wondering.

Spoilers for Angel 4x09 Long Day's Journey... )
