FIC LINK: Freedom in the Eyes of Another
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] Ouroboros69 ([profile] ouroboros69)
RATING/WARNING(S): T | Graphic violence, some gore
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 26,300
MAIN CHARACTERS: Haruno Sakura, Hatake Kakashi, Uzumaki Naruto, Uchiha Sasuke

FIC SUMMARY: The Wave Mission is a failure. Team Seven is captured. Sasuke is gone. Kakashi is next.
Sakura has no choice but to be a hero.

RECCER'S NOTES: An AU adventure in which Sakura has to grow a backbone several years early and finds, perhaps to her surprise, that it was already there. Sakura's voice is my favourite part of this fic: she sounds genuinely young, scared and rather shellshocked, and so, so determined to survive. Very Nasty Things™ happen which are not dwelt on - trust me when I say this isn't a darkfic, although it has some gloriously creepy imagery. And in among all the stabbity bits is some pretty wicked humour, so all in all there's no good reason not to read this.

WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 700
MAIN CHARACTERS: Lin Beifong

FIC SUMMARY: Lin always paid attention to the stories.

RECCER'S NOTES: Because I'm still disappointed we never got a Lin Prison Break™. LizBee never fails to deliver, and bending or no Lin Beifong is steel to the core.

RATING/WARNING(S): Teen / adult themes (prison camps, riots, etc)
WIP?/WORD COUNT: complete / 158 700 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Leonard McCoy, Spock, James T Kirk, OCs

FIC SUMMARY: McCoy's transport is destroyed in what is thought to be an accidental containment field explosion. No major character deaths.

RECCER'S NOTES: I try to always be honest about who a rec is meant for, so I will admit that if you feel like there is never a reason for a story to be over 100 000 words? This is not the fic that is going to change your mind. If, on the other hand, you love a good rollicking space adventure? Vulcans, Romulans, intergalactic politics, daring escapes, and the crew of the Enterprise being good at what they're good at? Then this is the fic for you. Fascinating examination of some of the Big Themes that come with Roddenberry's take on space exploration, and lovely characterisation of the classic triumvirate.

RATING/WARNING(S): PG
WIP?/WORD COUNT: one-shot | ~ 6,100 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Anakin Skywalker, Donna Noble; Yoda, Tenth Doctor

FIC SUMMARY: What do you do when you wake up in a space prison with no idea what's happened to your ride home? Well, it helps if there's a Jedi Knight in the next cell.

RECCER'S NOTES:

This is such a fun romp! Love the blending of the two fandoms. Donna's interaction with Anakin is great, and I love her characterization here.
