So, when I asked what I should post for 3W4DW, a couple people said fic reviews, and I haven't really been reading a lot of fic lately, but there is what I have read!

Babysitters Club

Accordingly Adorned (The BFF Remix) by [personal profile] velvetmouse Rec+
1300 words. G. Stacey & Claudia. Good fashion sense is gender-neutral. So is friendship.

OMG this is perfect! It's a remix of a fic that was written for me for Yuletide, so it feels like an extra remix present! I'm so thrilled to see more of Claude (or any trans!Claudia).

Full House

Round the Corner Straight by [personal profile] busaikko Rec+
1100 words. Michelle. The first two years, Glen doesn't want to see his family at all, not even cousins or people related by marriage. Joey jokes that he called in his debts, making his voice all Godfather-y, but Glen's pretty sure he actually had to go and explain things to Dad, and that there was a whole bunch of trouble involved.

I...did not know I needed Full House fic about Michelle being trans? (I mean, it actually took me a minute to remember which one Michelle was; at first I got Michelle and Stephanie confused.) But apparently I did, because this is awesome. It makes me want to watch Full House again (I loved it when it was running, but haven't watched it in years and years), but I know that Full House wouldn't be this Full House, so I guess really I just want more of this universe? XD

Harry Potter

Freaks, Geeks and Post-War Resolutions by [insanejournal.com profile] kaycee
3000 words. PG. Dudley feels out of place at Harry's party until a sweet girl asks him to dance.

I liked the idea of this a lot, but not so much the execution. Very tell, not show. Still, it's cute enough.

Hikaru no Go

Daylight (The Quiet Understanding Remix) by [archiveofourown.org profile] hostilecrayon
200 words. G. Touya/Hikaru. Touya doesn't know, but he understands.

This is a POV shift of my one and only Hikaru no Go drabble. It works really well as a companion piece (and also stands alone, which is always a plus in a remix, IMO).

RPF

Nothing to Say but It's Okay by [personal profile] cesare Rec
500 words. Teen. Jude Law/Ewan McGregor. The man who wriggles out of the linens is every bit as wrecked as the room.

Ces was asking for prompts and I asked for sleepy morning-after-the-first-time sex with either Jude/Ewan, Dom/Elijah, or John/Ronon, and she chose Jude/Ewan, yay! :D It's more funny and cute than porny, which is just fine with me. ♥

Stargate: Atlantis

Ganymede's New Groove (The Erastes Expansion) by [personal profile] sabinetzin Rec
3900 words. Explicit. John/Rodney. It's hard to believe he's twice Rodney's age.

This is an expansion of a drabble I wrote a couple years back for the McShep Match drabble tree. I really like what the remixer did with it. I think I had a more predatory John in mind, whereas this John is just sort of sad (especially in the second and third chapters), but I like that reading a lot. It certainly works with John's character. And I like snarky, jaded teenage Rodney.

Digimon 02

To the Future by [personal profile] beccastareyes
3700 words. G. Yamato is moody and everyone thinks its a bad breakup. Jou just finished his college entrance exams. And Takeru intercepts a Digimon-driven plot to solve these two things via matchmaking.

This was cute.

Futurama

The Way to a Femm-Bot's Heart by [archiveofourown.org profile] chibifukurou
1400 words. Mature. This wasn't how Coilette's plan was supposed to go.

Ehhh, this really wasn't funny at all and seemed like a pretty straight retelling of the episode, to boot. (Also the word is thespian! Thespian!)

We Three Robots by [archiveofourown.org profile] nevergoodbye
4100 words. Teen. It's X-Mas eve at Planet Express, and to settle a bet with the Robot Devil, Bender must undertake an impossible challenge: make Leela fall in love with him.

This had some funny lines and was definitely a lot better than the previous one, but still not anywhere near as funny as the show.

Hyperbole and a Half

The Alot, The Tuit, Mrs. Gradgrind, Sophie and Me, Allie by [personal profile] gehayi
3800 words. Teen. Allie's mom, teacher and best friend all insist that Alots are not real animals. Allie's friend the Alot is determined to prove that "imaginary" doesn't mean "unreal."

This was cute, but nowhere near as funny as the actual Hyperbole and a Half.

Baby-sitters Club

Accordingly Adorned by [archiveofourown.org profile] piscaria Rec+
600 words. G. The night before he meets Stacey McGill for lunch at the Hard Rock Café, he stays up until midnight assembling just the right outfit. It had to be perfect. Nothing, he thought, had ever driven him further in his quest for sartorial perfection than Stacey. They used to delight in being equally fabulous, albeit in different ways.

Another fic for me! I was late in seeing this because I didn't get a notification, but it is just perfect. BSC fic is probably the only place I'm ever going to love a long, loving description of someone's outfit, but it really is kind of necessary for Claudia. I really love this.

Let the Right One In

Hearts and Snow by [archiveofourown.org profile] gentlezombie
1200 words. Teen. The evolution of a human/vampire relationship.

This was interesting. There was actually one bit that really made me want more about that, but it's not what the story was about. At one point, Oskar, who is now seventeen, wonders what will happen as he keeps aging and Eli doesn't, and then he wonders if that's what had happened with Hakan. And obviously it's not. Hakan met Eli when he was already an adult, but I want to read the story now of Oskar continuing to age and freaking out about that.
