Wow, not only did I finish every fic in this batch (and there are eight of them), but I actually liked (to some degree) all of them, and am planning on reccing two! This is a first. This is...this is amazing, is what it is. Unheard of! I'm so used to not liking stuff that I'm just in shock.

Anyway, not only was this an amazingly good batch of recs, but it brings me down to only two left. Considering I put out the original call for recs back in August, it feels like I've been working my way through these forever, but now the end is in sight! However, the two I saved for last are extremely long (the Administration and a sprawling Star Wars genfic), so I decided to go ahead and post these, cause God knows how long it will take me to read those two unless I hate them so much I stop reading right away.

Intersections by [livejournal.com profile] kaneko 4/5 Recommended
Stargate: Atlantis. 24,500 words. Rodney's Antarctica is a lot like Siberia in that it's full of scientists who work 16-hour days and bathe once a week (twice when they're feeling social).
Lots of quotable lines. )

The Dark Crucible by [livejournal.com profile] imadra_blue 3/5 (unfinished WiP)
Star Wars. 76,300 words. On a dangerous mission to Dantooine to capture a Dark Jedi, Anakin realizes he has feelings for Obi-Wan that go beyond friendship or brotherhood.
Would totally rec if it weren't abandoned. )

Roundabout by [livejournal.com profile] arakne 3/5 (broken link)
Harry Potter. Short story. After encountering Draco over the summer, he turns up in Hermione's Muggle Studies class and asks her for help.
Interesting, but didn't feel very connected to canon. )

To the Batmobile! by [livejournal.com profile] tamalinn 2/5
Smallville. 1500 words. Lex hits his head and thinks he's Batman.
Had some funny lines, but... )

Castlevania: Remembrance by [livejournal.com profile] shininghalf 2/5
Castlevania. 8200 words. A Castlevania story in a 1950s setting in which the Belmonts have become fairly typical Americans.
Interesting, but not great. )

Ink by [livejournal.com profile] tigertrapped 4/5 Recommended
Constantine. 4900 words. Young John Constantine gets tattooed.
Very cool. )

How Many Ways by [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o 2/5

Well-written enough, but I can't say I particularly enjoyed it. )

Roots Rain by [livejournal.com profile] katallison 3/5
Due South. 11,100 words. Fraser broods in the aftermath of a case gone wrong.
All right. )

Price of Wisdom by [livejournal.com profile] zortified 1/5 - Did not finish
Harry Potter. 34,200 words. Percy has a secret. What will happen when he has to reveal it, to save his brother?
Badly in need of a beta and a Britpick. )

Chance to Make It Real by [livejournal.com profile] wearemany 2/5
The West Wing. 30,000 words. Josh and Sam work together and fall in love, lose touch and find themselves.
This may be a good fic for fans of the show, but was horribly, horribly wrong for me. )

While the Tempest Hurled by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat 3/5
Smallville. 31,000 words. Earth is invaded by Kryptons and Lex leads the resistance.
Interesting idea. )

Rosemary for Remembrance by [livejournal.com profile] tenshi_no_korin 2/5
Suikoden. 9200 words. Suikoden style Yule.
Decently written, but without canon knowledge I have no idea what's going on. )
torachan: (ewan whinge)
The Bet by [livejournal.com profile] xochiquetzl 1/5 - Didn't finish
Harry Potter. 20,600 words. Severus and Remus make a bet that Remus won't want to have sex every night for a month.
32 PWPs...yeah, not my thing. )

Interstitial by [livejournal.com profile] runpunkrun 2/5

Great, up until the lack of ending. )

Two I couldn't make myself finish and two others I did, but wasn't keen on. *hopes for better luck with the next batch*

The Elements Series by [livejournal.com profile] cara_chapel 2/5 - Did not finish
Star Wars. 109,700 words. Qui-Gon Jinn fails to take Obi-Wan as his apprentice on Bandomeer, so Yoda does instead.
Solidly mediocre. )

Subtext by [livejournal.com profile] thete1 2/5 - Did not finish
Smallville. 9100 words. Clark takes Lex to the movies.
More fragments than complete sentences. )

The Old Schizophrenic Jealousy by [livejournal.com profile] scribblinlenore 2/5
Smallville. 4100 words. You force yourself to push away the thought of how close he is, how easy it would be to kiss him again. You are Clark now, no blue suit, no right to know that Lex tastes as dark and sweet as plums.
Not really my thing at all. )

Arcana Nuda by [livejournal.com profile] tanacawyr 2/5
Ultraviolet. 4200 words. After the series, Michael is kidnapped with the intent of rattling his cage.
Interesting, but the writing could use work. )

Save the Last Dance for Me by [livejournal.com profile] ddayspring 1/5 - Did not finish.

OMG SO BAD )

Pretty When You're Mine by [livejournal.com profile] seperis 3/5

Enjoyable, but appears to be abandoned. )

The Importance of Being Brian by [livejournal.com profile] julad 3/5
Queer as Folk US. 17,100 words. Brian/Justin. The weirdness gets unavoidable when Brian refuses to get his job back.
Surprisingly enjoyable. )
