AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] grenadine
RATING/WARNING(S): T | liberal use of the letter f; spoilers for Spinners and Losers and the beginning of Season 4
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 6,300
MAIN CHARACTERS: Nicola Murray, Malcolm Tucker, (Ollie Reeder, Glen Cullen, Julius Nicholson)

FIC SUMMARY: During the election, Nicola Murray hits a wall.

RECCER'S NOTES: Politics fic! Nicola gets a rare chance to shine here, because for all her many (many, many many) flaws, she was one of the few ideologically honest people in DoSAC. And her voice is brilliant, and the dialogue is brilliant, and the characterisation is brilliant, and of all the fics I want to write on my skin until they can be absorbed as a permanent part of my system, this one's damn well near the top of the list.

And when you're done with that, head to Close Your Eyes and Think of Agincourt, by the same author and set prior to Uncertain.

WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 3,400
MAIN CHARACTERS: The Twelfth Doctor, Clara, Nicola Murray, Ollie Reeder, Glenn Cullen, Terri Coverley

FIC SUMMARY: There's an emergency on-board a spaceship. Thank God the Doctor's been called in to help.

RECCER'S NOTES: The title should tell you everything you need to know. It's sweary, it's funny, it is magnificent. None of the other characters are named, but you can tell who's who almost immediately - the voices are creepily accurate. (And as accompaniment, have this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Blf073f2Lc)

WIP?/WORD COUNT: 3854| complete
MAIN CHARACTERS: Harry Potter, Gene Hunt, Edmund Blackadder, Ros Myers, Loki(Marvel), James Bond, Kelly Bailey, Sherlock Holmes, Malcolm Tucker, Eleventh Doctor.

FIC SUMMARY: Director Blackadder of SHIELD had a dream. A dream of getting other people to do all the hard work saving the world while reaping the benefits of a huge pay check at the end of the day.

RECCER'S NOTES: A lot of multi-crossovers tend to be overwhelmed by trying to fit a multitude of characters in to a fic, but netla pulls it off with aplomb or even a turnip. This fic is a very funny version of ‘The Avengers Assemble’ movie but reworked with British super-heros, um, well, shall we say British characters for the sake of accuracy. Not only are the characters swapped but the locations are very British too. Marvel’s SHIELD has a swish HQ, while the London HQ has plastic Ikea chairs and our heroes go searching for Loki on a council estate. Perhaps not for people who can’t take the majority of the humour coming out of taking the Michael out of their faves. And with Malcolm Tucker involved there is some sweary-sweariness.
