RATING/WARNING(S): M
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 10,155
MAIN CHARACTERS: Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanov, Pepper Potts, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Thor

FIC SUMMARY: An AU where Steve's essentially a failed experiment, corporal punishment is the predominant form of discipline and team leaders take the punishments for those under them.

RECCER'S NOTES:

I think this is one of those "everyone has read it" kind of deals, but JUST IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T, here's the link. Delicious Steve Rogers hurt/comfort and team feels all wrapped up in a well-written package. This caters to my id in a big way, but there's so much to enjoy I'm sure I'd love it even if iddiness was taken out of the picture entirely.

RECCER'S NOTES: Another fic that would fit in quite well among Asimov's work. The last line in particular is very in character for Susan.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Richard III
FIC SUMMARY: A soliloquy from Richard III, reflecting on his greater and house-specific family legacy.

RECCER'S NOTES: Impressive enough to write a soliloquy like Shakespeare, even more so to do it well. Great imagery.

FIC LINK: Sons of York
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] the_alchemist
RATING/WARNING(S): General audiences / Implied/Referenced Child Abuse, Postpartum Depression.
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 2289 | Complete.
MAIN CHARACTERS: Richard III of England, Richard Plantagenet Duke of York, George Plantagenet Duke of Clarence, Edward IV of England, Edmund Plantagenet Earl of Rutland, Cecily Neville Duchess of York, Anne Plantagenet, Elizabeth Plantagenet, Margaret Plantagenet.
FIC SUMMARY: After the main festivities are over, the seven children of the Duke and Duchess of York share their traditional Christmas midnight feast. One of Richard's sisters has overheard their mother talking about her plans for Richard's future ... plans that do not please him at all. But Richard has some secrets of his own, and finds an ally in his father.

RECCER'S NOTES: This was a Yuletide gift for me, but it's still a lovely tale of family love for a young Richard III. The seeds are sown for the future, but overall it can't get rid of the warm glow this fic creates.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Alanna of Pirate's Swoop and Olau, Nealan of Queenscove, Jonathon of Conte.

FIC SUMMARY: Alanna and Neal investigate rumors of bandits. Along the way, Alanna is confronted with the consequences of the decision Jonathan made at the commencement of his reign and has to square the need to punish the families of conspirators from a coup twenty years old against her sense of honor.

RECCER'S NOTES: Reassuringly Pierce-like and the characters are sympathetically handled. A deceptively easy read with neat banter between Neal and Alanna. Made me want to read the books all over again.

FIC SUMMARY: Or, the five times Briar Cudgeon Didn't Get What He Wanted

RECCER'S NOTES: This is one of my favorite "5 times/things" fics. I like the fact that it focuses on a little-used character and how it incorporates a quote from Alice in Wonderland. Word of warning, I don't know how long the fansite it's hosted on will be active, with Artemis Fowl being over and all...

FIC SUMMARY: As K9 carries Orac they share a dialogue.

RECCER'S NOTES: Short, but full of humour. The fic is driven forward by the perfectly in character comedy. Orac may be the cleverest computer, yet doesn't dominate K9:)

FIC SUMMARY: Georgie goes undercover at a village fête.

FIC SUMMARY: Vila makes an SOS call and instead of help, gets an unwanted breakthrough in scientific progress.

RECCER'S NOTES: A fic where no knowledge is needed of the other fandom. Vila and Georgie's confusion is perfectly pitched with humour. Georgie's insistence of helping even when she thinks Vila is crazy shows her irrepressible energy to a tee.

RATING/WARNING(S): T
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 17402
MAIN CHARACTERS: Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanov, Logan (X-Men), Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, Clint Barton, Wade Wilson

FIC SUMMARY: Steve's sick of not understanding what's going on, and the team are not all that helpful, so he starts keeping an illustrated notebook for further research. With the help of wiki, google and Logan he starts to settle in and find his place in the twenty-first century.

RECCER'S NOTES:

I loved this -- it's not just a fic about Steve trying to adjust to the 21st century, it's a fic about Steve trying to adjust to the Avengers, and how he fits in with them. His relationships with Tony and Natasha are particularly well done, and the little glimpses of his backstory and time during the war are beautifully woven through Steve's efforts to establish himself in his current situation.

FIC SUMMARY: There's something decidedly odd about the Grace Bros. Ladies and Gents' clothing department. Sapphire and Steel investigate.

RECCER'S NOTES: Lols all round. In this fic Steel meets something more deadly than time, but this is to be expected in the world of a 1970s sitcom....

RATING/WARNING(S): General Audiences.
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 2387 | Complete.
MAIN CHARACTERS: Puss in Boots
FIC SUMMARY: Puss’s owner dies and leaves him to the youngest son, who’s gone and fallen for a dame well above his station. It’s up to Puss to unite the two loves and solve the case of a stolen jewel in the process. And maybe, just maybe, get himself a sweet life on easy street.

First in the Two-Booted Tales series.

RECCER'S NOTES: A fairy tale AU where Puss is a hardboiled 'tec. Of course, with the tale involving a boot wearing cat the perp isn't run of the mill either. Great use of noirish dialogue makes the tale a pleasure.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Sarah Williams, Toby Williams, Hoggle, Sir Didymus, Jareth.

FIC SUMMARY: After her journey through the Labyrinth, trick-or-treating is an entirely different experience.

RECCER'S NOTES: Post-canon, Sarah is still having adventures with her friends and even a night trick-or-treating isn't free from peril. This fic joins together the fun and fearful aspects of Halloween. The author also keeps the story within what Sarah learned during the film and strengthens and repeats this.

Not all children are happy that their nightmares have disappeared, and as such North finds himself receiving a very unexpected letter several days before Christmas.

FIC SUMMARY: Being Queen means a lot less time to read, amongst other things.

RECCER'S NOTES: There are few fics inspired by Pierce's Trickster novels which is a shame as they feature some of her best writing. This is a lovely tale of how two separate gestures bring the chance of a welcome break from duties into Dove's life.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Elmo, The Count, Telly Monster, Grover, Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Murray Monster, Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Tony Stark, JARVIS, Thor, Natasha Romanov, Bruce Banner, Nick Fury, Phil Coulson

FIC SUMMARY: This fic is brought to you by the letter Y, the number 12, and the Avengers' decision to help fix what Loki and the Chitauri did to destroy parts of Manhattan. (Mostly that last part.)

RECCER'S NOTES:

Somebody rec'd this to me ages ago and I dismissed it as "not my thing" - but oh, I was wrong. This is DELIGHTFUL. Played so much straighter than I thought it would be, and it's adorable and funny and the perfect pick-me-up fic.
