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): 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.

WIP?/WORD COUNT: 1091 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Catherine Tilney
FIC SUMMARY: "Under what circumstances, then,” said Mrs. Tilney to herself, taking a seat upon the garden bench, “is one likely to encounter a giant bean-stalk?”

RECCER'S NOTES: This made me smile a lot!  It ends just as it's beginning, but that leaves room for all sorts of fun speculation about what comes next!.
