AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] maychorian
RATING/WARNING(S): G
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 40,020
MAIN CHARACTERS: Shiro, Lance, Pidge, Hunk, Keith, Allura, Coran

FIC SUMMARY: After a Galra attack splits Voltron, the blue lion is damaged and falls toward the jungle planet below. Shiro follows, and now he and Lance are stranded in hostile territory, fighting to survive. Lance is injured, Shiro is having flashbacks, and help is far away. And the Galra just...keep coming.

RECCER'S NOTES:

One of the most hurty/comforty hurt/comfort fics I've ever read. So much admiration and nurturing and cuddling in this and I love it so much. I think the relationship between Shiro and Lance is captured really well and the voices are great.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Homer Simpson, Lisa Simpson

FIC SUMMARY: Homer observes Lisa as she becomes close to Patty's newest girlfriend.

RECCER'S NOTES:

This is gorgeous. Homer is so in character and his voice is spot on - it doesn't go too far into over the top stupid, but it points out his flaws as well, including the ones that have only gotten worse as time has gone on, gently steering him right again without changing him into someone else. His relationship with Lisa is really sweetly done, and Lisa is her bright, clever little self. This is just beautiful.

RATING/WARNING(S): G
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 1152
MAIN CHARACTERS: Bob Belcher, Tina Belcher, Gene Belcher, Louise Belcher

FIC SUMMARY: The Belcher kids try to find the secret treasure of Cowgirl Kelly, while Bob just tries to beat Jimmy Pesto at the Wonder Wharf's Barbecue festival.

RECCER'S NOTES:

This could be lifted straight from canon. The character voices are wonderful and the entire adventure reads just like an episode - whacky antics and amazing Belcher interaction.

FIC SUMMARY: Five times that no one was thinking of Shiro as a dad.

RECCER'S NOTES:

This fic has a mix of everything. It's the first in a series but it's complete within itself and it's like a rollercoaster of all of my favourite things - found family, angst, fluffy feels, hurt/comfort, and there's a great sense of humour all woven through it as well.

MAIN CHARACTERS: James "Bucky" Barnes

FIC SUMMARY: The Winter Soldier tracks down each and every HYDRA agent that forced him to kill and watches them die. He also tries to become a well-rounded individual with interests and hobbies. The results are mixed.

RECCER'S NOTES:

This is somehow not as cracky as it seems. Bucky tries to recover from being the Winter Soldier by hunting down and killing the people responsible. He discovers things like sudoku and guitar along the way and tries to incorporate them into his life as a tactical way of fitting in, but also as a way to just be more NORMAL. It's funny and dark and weird and I love it.

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.

RATING/WARNING(S): General audiences / Implied/Referenced Child Abuse, Postpartum Depression.

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.

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.
