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.

Serenity finally opened here today, and I thought the movie was awesome! Also now I don't have to be hyper-vigilant anymore to avoid any spoilers. It paid off though, I managed to remain unspoiled before seeing it.

I was rather surprised how empty the theater was. Admittedly, it's Thursday, not the weekend, I went to an afternoon show and also saw the English original version, not a dubbed one, so I'm not surprised it wasn't crowded, but I think there weren't even ten people in the theater.

Anyway, I was confused about one thing though:
the question is behind a cut for movie spoilers )

On a totally random note, my rats are the wrong pets if you just want to cuddle something warm and furry. It's not that they aren't cuddly or affectionate, they just won't stay put for even a moment. :/ Well they're still young, and as such quite hyper, but surely they could allow to let themselves petted for a short while? Only they won't, instead they prefer to have wild scuffles on my bed (I guess because it's softer than to fight on the floor) so that I'm punched into various soft body parts by a rapidly moving ball of two kicking, boxing and squeaking rats, rolling all over the place.

I woke up around 6:30 a.m., a time I normally wouldn't consider being awake, especially not since I went to sleep just slightly before 2 a.m. However, I decided to stay awake now because it's still cool and pleasant and to take a nap in the afternoon when it's hot. I mean, I like the warm, sunny weather, but highs of 27°C (ca. 80°F, I think) lead to my apartment being much warmer, because I'm right under the roof and have sun from noon through all of the afternoon and early evening. Which really is a good thing most of the time, but not so much when it's really warm and sunny. And I'm even more sloth-like than usual when it's that warm. I realize that people who live in areas where it gets really hot in summer probably think that these kinds of temperatures are nice and cool, but the average high in midsummer here is something like 20°C (ca. 70°F), not some subtropical heat wave.

Anyway, I didn't really want to post a boring weather ramble, I wanted to say that when I woke up my download of the unaired Firefly episode Trash via bittorrent (I found the torrent file on fireflyfans.net) had been successful overnight. And that definitely brightened my morning, though I haven't watched it yet.
