FANDOM: Fake News (The Daily Show and The Colbert Report)
FIC LINK: Ye Merrie Olde Adventures of Duke Stephen (and His Knights)
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] PlotDohOh
RATING/WARNING(S): PG
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 14,700 (3,300 + 11,100)
MAIN CHARACTERS: (the fake personas of) Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart, all the correspondents and a number of quasi-political figures whose names I don't feel like typing out right now.

FIC SUMMARY: It all started when the new young Duke, Lord Stephen de Colbert, finally got around to arresting that loudmouthed troubadour — the one who wouldn't stop badmouthing him all over the Duchy of Newest York.

RECCER'S NOTES: Because sometimes you want a dark and serious deconstruction, and sometimes you just want puns. A very funny, very silly fairy-tale AU set in the land of Amurrica. There are swords! There are bears! There is multivariate statistical analysis! There are, most of all, clever, clever puns!
Trust me on this one.

Also: it turns out there are no fanfics beginning with X.
Also also: looks like Photobucket has decided to ransom off its hosting. Thus beginneth the migration...

RATING/WARNING(S): gen, none
WIP?/WORD COUNT: one-shot | ~ 1,140 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Eris (Astronomy), Pluto (Astronomy), Planet 9 (Astronomy)

FIC SUMMARY: It's another day at work in the Solar System, and Planet 9 has to deal with its coworkers.

RECCER'S NOTES: This is the best kind of crack, in which the characters are still recocnizable. This made me laugh and giggle.

FIC LINK: A Very Hard Sale
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] Tish
RATING/WARNING(S): General audiences.
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 522 | Complete.
MAIN CHARACTERS: Sapphire, Steel, Mr Humpries.

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....

AUTHOR LINK: Primsong
RATING/WARNING(S): All ages
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 2611| Complete
MAIN CHARACTERS: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, The Doctor (3rd), UNIT, The Doctor (10th)

FIC SUMMARY: Because everyone needs a little exploding fruitcakefic for the holidays, especially with Three and Ten.

RECCER'S NOTES:FANDOM: Cake!fic! The ingredients consist of character X naked, except for one item of clothing, chained to Y and covered in cake. Optionally, it’s all the fault of their arch-nemesis. An obscure genre which despite the potential for smut generally swerves it, largely due to the fact evil geniuses prefer to put cake to diabolical uses.

Written by Primsong who is a bit good at writing for the classic UNIT family. The exchanges between the Doctor’s Tenth and Third selves are excellent and there’s even a plausible reason for this cakeyness. Ish - the Master was always fond of a daft plot. Not that there ever needs to be a reason…

RATING/WARNING(S): PG-13
WORD COUNT: ~ 5,040
MAIN CHARACTERS: Merlin, Arthur, ensemble

FIC SUMMARY: With the beginning of Arthur’s reign and the unbanning of sorcery, a new era of communication begins in Albion. Soon even parchment will be obsolete! (Warning: Here be puns.)

RECCER'S NOTES: This is so hilarious. The puns alone crack me up. I love intelligent humor.

RATING/WARNING(S): G according to the author, but there's language that's not G-rated, just FYI if it's not your thing :)
WIP?/WORD COUNT: 1762
MAIN CHARACTERS: Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanov, Bruce Banner, Thor, Phil Coulson, Nick Fury

FIC SUMMARY: So there's this project Tony has been working on since he was ten years old which is only marginally less awesome than the specs for the TARDIS he totally could have built if Fury would've just let him had the Tesseract for a couple hours longer.

RECCER'S NOTES:

This is hilarious and awesome. I just love it, I can't even. The voices are amazing, and there are heaps of little nods, quotes, quips and homages to other fandoms throughout, including Firefly and Doctor Who. There's also a podfic by [archiveofourown.org profile] susan_voight.
