torachan: maru the cat sitting in a bucket (maru)
Haven't posted any reviews in a while because mostly all I've been reading is [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match and I'm not posting those reviews until after the fest is over. But I did read one SGA fic and one Sherlock, and already had another SGA review on my hard drive, so I figured I'd go back and finally review the rest of the fics I read during the Transfic Mini Fest and then I'd have enough for a post. And so I have!

Batman

Might Spit Like a Girl But I Hit Like a Guy by [personal profile] gloss Rec+
800 words. The best thing about being Robin is that he gets to fight (back). A bunch of thugs put their thick skulls together and decide to whale on a few of the kids working the stroll, waiting for johns? Robin can swoop down and take those motherfuckers to *school*.

I don't really know much about Batman, certainly not this incarnation or this Robin, but I really liked this a lot.

Glee

What if I'm a Mermaid? by [personal profile] starlurker
1400 words. Teen. Kurt is changing.

This is sweet and cute. I had misread the prompt as asking for ftm!Kurt, rather than mtf, and I actually really want to see that, but I liked this a lot, too.

Katekyou Hitman Reborn!

This Heart's Still Solid Like a Knife by [personal profile] eisen Rec
500 words. It is noise, but it is her name.

This was in answer to one of my prompts, "this has nothing to do with Mukuro; this is about me". I had in mind Chrome being ftm, but I really like this take on it! There is all sorts of interesting stuff that can be done with Chrome and Mukuro.

Leverage

It's Not a Question (But a Lesson Learned In Time) by [personal profile] pixel Rec+
800 words. PG. He's just tired of waiting to be ready to do it.

I have wanted trans!Hardison for a long time and this was just perfect. It's gen with Eliot and Parker helping Hardison find some closure. I really loved this bit especially: " He thinks for a brief moment of keeping them, something tangible, he was here. The idea dies as soon as he flips open the top folder, wrong name, wrong person, wrong life scribbled all over the neat little lines and boxes."

Pokemon

'Cause You're Always Burning Up So Bright by [personal profile] agent_squeaks
100 words. He wasn't born right, he realized, right after he had evolved into a pikachu.

Aww, this is cute! I never would have thought about Pokemon transfic about the actual Pokemon, but this works.

Powerpuff Girls

From the Desk of Bubbles: Things I Will Keep on Doing as a Boy by [personal profile] dagas_isa Rec
500 words. General Audiences. Bubbles is a boy now, but he's still going to be himself.

I had asked for fic about Bubbles being ftm, but still being sparkly as a boy and this is just exactly what I wanted. I would love to see more of this Bubbles!

Sherlock

A Facade Faded by [livejournal.com profile] starjenni Rec
2200 words. T. Alternate Ending. You know that person who we thought for a split second might be Moriarty? Well, he is.

Ooh! I really liked this. spoilers for the show ) But I really like the idea! And I think this did a really good job with it.

Stargate: Atlantis

A Mark in Time by [personal profile] busaikko Rec
2700 words. PG-13. It turns Rodney on; John gets something else out of it.

This is a very sweet and adorable fic about Rodney being a plushophile and owning a Hello Kitty costume. XD

Backdoor Baby by anonymous Rec+
12,300 words. "I'm sorry," she says again. "I'm afraid I have to tell you, um..." She pauses, her eyes on his. "You're pregnant."

Wow, I really don't know what to say. This is 12K of Jennifer/John mpreg crack and I started reading it for the lulz, fully expecting it to be badfic, but it's actually really good! Like, in every way. The writing is great. The characterisation is spot-on. It's hot. It's funny. It explains how the pregnancy works in a way that satisfies me (it's an Ancient machine, natch, but even then, a lot of stories don't bother trying to explain the mechanics and it frustrates me to have it be so handwavey). I was unable to see this pairing at all before, but it totally made me buy it (they weren't together at first). I am really kind of floored at how much I enjoyed it. XD
