RATING/WARNING(S): PG | Canon-typical violence | Major spoilers for Ch.43 / Ep.31
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 1,700
MAIN CHARACTERS: Levi, Annie Leonhart

FIC SUMMARY: When they are sent out on a joint mission Levi and Annie find a common ground. Future-fic, speculative AU [following chapter 43].

RECCER'S NOTES: A commander is responsible for his squad’s happiness.
Fittingly enough the dub just hit Episode 31, so this fic is now safe for everyone in the English-speaking fandom. A beautiful, vivid little oneshot about two people who might actually get along, and also all the feels. ALL OF THEM. After reading this I found myself desperately craving more Annie-Levi fic which of course does not exist. Dammit.

WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 6,500 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Roj Blake, Kerr Avon

FIC SUMMARY: Blake struggles with fundamental questions of trust, friendship and political ideology in the harsh environment of the Earth domes.

RECCER'S NOTES: In honour of my first post, here is the first fanfic I ever read. Ten years (!) and several thousand fics later, it still stands as one of my all-time favourites. Blake's voice comes alive when he talks politics; Avon is simultaneously a very different person and very much himself. Life in the domes is described in elegant detail, and while it might not be correct to call it a thriller there's an undercurrent of tension to every scene. While still being canon-compliant, the story puts a very different spin on Avon and Blake's relationship, and it packs a hell of a punch. I hope it'll stick in your head the way it did in mine.

WIP?/WORD COUNT: No/2630
MAIN CHARACTERS: Elizabeth Jennings, Elizabeth's Mother

FIC SUMMARY: Nadya's mother is sick, her classmates lack revolutionary commitment and the Communist future is still far from being built. But she struggles on.

RECCER'S NOTES: A glimpse at Elizabeth's life before she was a spy back in Russia, and how crapsack her life could have been at that time with an ailing mother, an awful neighbor, and no time to spend time as a child. (Although the fic is a pre-season fic, there is information revealed from the latest season of the show.)

RATING/WARNING(S): Teen
WIP?/WORD COUNT: complete / 67 000 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Barry Allen, Iris West, Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon, Joe West

FIC SUMMARY: Three months after the singularity, a wave of impossible robberies strikes Central City, and there is one obvious suspect: the Flash. But as Barry and his friends unite to track down the real culprit, they find themselves facing a dangerous new enemy in a pursuit that may cost them everything.

Post season 1.

RECCER'S NOTES: An epic, plotty imagining of what might have happened after the season one finale. If you spent the summer hoping Iris would finally get to be part of the gang, or wondering what DCU villains might make an appearance, this is the fic to scratch that itch. Plus: friendship and teamwork! So many feels.
