torachan: a happy cartoon guy with the text "it's like a blast of happy up my ass" (blast of happy in my ass)
Whew! I am not used to reading this much fanfic lately! Or, indeed, ever. XD It helps that a lot of these are shorter fics, but still, I am amazed at how much I've been reading lately. I have been taking my ipod to bed with me and reading a bit before going to sleep (and sometimes a bit when I wake up, too), and today I also read three or four fics while walking back from the post office.

Elementary Murder Mystery Analysis (3618 words) by faviconjibrailis Rec
Fandom: Community
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Abed Nadir, Troy Barnes, Britta Perry, Jeff Winger, Shirley Bennett, Pierce Hawthorne, Annie Edison
Summary: "It's come to my attention," says Pierce, "that Jeff is dead." (But Sherlock Abed is born).

Good character voices. I enjoyed this.

Clocks Are Dumb Anyway (1183 words) by favicongertie_flirty Rec
Fandom: Hark! A Vagrant
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Nancy Drew, Ned Nickerson, Bess Marvin, George Fayne, Frank Hardy
Summary: Nancy Drew reflects on her old cases. And also fails to fix a clock, but nobody cares about that part.

This was really funny. I love how the lack of punctuation in dialogue makes it read more like the comics. I was head-scratchy about George randomly being a dude. Someone in comments assumed that it was the author deliberately adding a bizarre twist, which could be the case, but my first reaction was "wtf have you never actually read Nancy Drew?" So idk. XD Regardless, the story is hilarious and I love Beaton's Nancy so much.

Mystery Solving Teens Confirm the Obvious (1304 words) by faviconBow
Fandom: Hark! A Vagrant
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Mystery Solving Teens, Nancy Drew, Vanessa (Hark! A Vagrant), St. Francis, Birds (Hark! A Vagrant), Foul-mouthed Duck
Summary: The Mystery Solving Teens land their highest-profile assignment yet. Will they crack the case...or fail to care entirely? The Shit Talker--the high school's most illustrious student newspaper--reports from the scene.

I loved the addition of the "aw yiss" duck and St. Francis (I never read headers, so I didn't even know they'd be in it until they appeared, so it was a fun surprise). I'm not too interested in Mystery Solving Teens at the moment and was mainly reading this for Nancy, who was funny when she appeared (especially her confession! XD) but was not as big a part of it as I'd hoped.

Tool Time with Ron Swanson (1185 words) by faviconkatsumeragi
Fandom: Parks and Recreation
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Ron Swanson/Chris Traeger
Characters: Ron Swanson, Chris Traeger
Summary: Chris finds a way to break his coffee table and Ron takes it upon himself to teach him lessons of craftsmanship, Swanson family traditions, and to stop buying things from the Swedes.

Good Chris and Ron voices, but apparently it doesn't really feel like Parks & Rec to me without reaction shots and people talking to the camera. :-/ Still cute and funny, though.

Red Letter Day (7678 words) by faviconshinealightonme
Fandom: Parks and Recreation
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Ann Perkins, Leslie Knope, April Ludgate, Andy Dwyer, Ron Swanson, Ben Wyatt, Tom Haverford
Summary: Eight holidays Ann Perkins survived thanks to (or in spite of) the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department.

Cute, but uneven. It seems I'm very picky with this fandom. :-/

0.0109% of the Way to the Moon (2806 words) by faviconmyrifique
Fandom: Parks and Recreation
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Leslie Knope & Ann Perkins
Characters: Leslie Knope, Ann Perkins
Summary: How Leslie and Ann single-handedly made "being healthy in Pawnee" awesome. Or possible, at least.

Also cute. Leslie and Ann, yay. :)

I was lazy and used the AO3 rec formatting, which I don't particularly like and also makes every entry way long (also I quoted a lot!), so they're going behind a cut. So far I've really only read by recs, so these have probably been mentioned quite a bit already, but whatevs. I enjoyed them!
