Slings & Arrows

Legacy (9195 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] DesireeArmfeldt - Ellen Fanshaw/Geoffrey Tennant, Jack Crew/Kate McNab
Characters: Geoffrey Tennant, Jack Crew, Ellen Fanshaw, Kate McNab

Jack and Geoffrey and their enduring friendship. I love everything about this story, but especially the way we see Jack and Geoffrey's relationship change and grow as their lives change.

We Shall Remain in Friendship (1449 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] spuffyduds

Really great Anna and Geoffrey friendship fic. I love the dynamic between them in the show and I really love this take on how they first met and became friends.


Life

Pieces of a Whole (485 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] aj2245

Short but wonderful. Really captures Dani and Charlie's relationship.


Fame

Being What We Can (12390 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] oliviacirce - Ralph Garci/Montgomery MacNeil, Ralph Garci/Doris Finsecker, Montgomery MacNeil & Doris Finsecker

Wonderful, slow-building poly-fic, that is also most-definitely a love-letter to the theater.


The Thin Man

Climb Into The World (470 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] bessemerprocess - Nick Charles/Nora Charles

The one where Nick and Nora are Time Lords. Of course! Because that explains so much…

Considerably Before the Thin Man (2211 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Fabrisse - Nick Charles/Nora Charles

Nick meets Nora. Of course there's a murder involved. Simply delightful!


Singin' in the Rain

Girl Of My Dreams (1438 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Andraste - Cosmo Brown/Don Lockwood, Don Lockwood/Kathy Selden

Absolutely delightful Cosmo and Kathy friendship fic.


A League Of Their Own

Hear That Call (4595 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] isbmlamloi - Jimmy Dugan/Dottie Hinson, Mae Mordabito/Doris Murphy

Captures the feel of the movie and the characters wonderfully. A lovely look at a friendship that slowly turns into something more. WIth bonus background lesbians \o/


Sunset Boulevard

Lebenswerk (9874 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Selena - Norma Desmond/Max von Mayerling, Norma Desmond/Joe Gillis

A marvelous and chilling backstory for Max and Norma. Max's obsession with Norma is just the right kind of disturbing. And the rapidly shifting, emotionally charged power dynamics between them, the way they push and pull and ultimately wrap around and destroy each other is heartbreakingly perfect.


Casablanca

It's Still the Same Old Story (2618 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] misslucyjane - Rick Blaine/Louis Renault

A great character piece focusing on Rick trying to find his place after the war. This felt very right and true to the character to me.


How to Train Your Dragon

This is Berk. This is My Home. (1533 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] billtheradish

A lovely exploration of Astrid and her history and motivations. I love this idea of what Astrid's mother might be like, and how complicated their relationship is.


Into the Woods

the rope you began with (was never that straight) (3819 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Fahye - Baker/Cinderella

A charming look at the future of Cinderella and the other survivors of Into the Woods. The Cinderella-pov is wonderful, and the incorporation of glimpses of other fairytales was delightful.

As great a pang of heart by [personal profile] sage - Slings & Arrows, Ellen/Geoffrey - Holy fucking GUH. Scorchingly hot, and deeply, deeply queer het. New Burbage puts on Twelfth Night, Oliver wants to really play up the Cesario/Orsino subtext and Ellen and Geoffrey really get into their roles. Twelfth Night is one of my favorite of Shakespeare's plays, largely because of how deliciously queer it is, and I have a major kink for performances that not only acknowledge, but really forefront that queerness. Sage not only forefronts it, but makes it gloriously, twistyly explicit, in a way that feels entirely in character for Geoffrey and Ellen.

No Man's Land by [personal profile] ellen_fremedon - Lord Peter Wimsey/Doctor Who crossover, Gen - An absolutely brilliant crossover. Peter and Bunter and Jack Harkness in World War I, with complications. Ellen is the only author I know who can seamlessly combine old school and new school Who canon believably, while staying true to the spirit of both. I was nervous and uncertain when I saw this crossover listed, but it works beautifully.

Lies the Color of Your Crimes by [livejournal.com profile] ficsoreal - White Collar, Peter/Neal - In which Neal tries (and fails) to lie to Peter. A little angstier than I usually go for, but very well done.

and anyone who's ever had a heart by [livejournal.com profile] liviapenn - White Collar, Elizabeth/Peter/Neal - Fabulous OT3 stretching from pre-series to well-post current canon. There really is nothing I don't love about this story.

Making Book by [archiveofourown.org profile] LJC - White Collar, Gen - OMG JUNE! I have been wanting June fic so much, and this really is everything I could have wished for.

Yin and Yang by [livejournal.com profile] therienne - White Collar/Leverage crossover, Gen - Incredibly cool concept and execution. Two independent perspectives on the same events. Each story stands somewhat on it's own, but both are required in order to see it all completely. I love that the two narratives are completely independent of each other, leaving the characters all knowing only their half of the story.

the christmas eve job by [archiveofourown.org profile] hardlygolden - Leverage, Gen - Christmas-themed fic that works. Great use of the whole team.

Evolution of a Geek by [livejournal.com profile] gumbie_cat - Leverage, Gen - Twelve year old Hardison discovers geekdom.

Behind the Scenes by [personal profile] pocketmouse - Slings & Arrows, Gen - Season one as seen through the eyes of the tech crew. Exactly the kind of thing fic is great for.

Follies by [personal profile] pocketmouse - Slings & Arrows, Gen - The cast of Hamlet do a charity performance of Hair. Gets musicals in the classics and politics in the musicals. I wouldn't want it any other way.

All That's Best of Dark and Bright by [livejournal.com profile] mmebahorel - Tom Stoppard - Arcadia, Thomasina/Septimus - Lovely and bittersweet like all fic for this play is. Marvelous dialogue every bit as witty, intricate and layered as the original.

The Smallest Chickadee by [archiveofourown.org profile] MissJess - Robert Frost - Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening, Gen - A lovely and unique alternate take on the poem, both in pov and subject.

The Conversations of Women by [archiveofourown.org profile] Aycelcus - Strangers in Paradise, Francine/Katchoo, Casey/Tambi - Wonderful, fluffy future-fic. Great attention to detail.

We Are Six by [archiveofourown.org profile] nope - Eloise/Calvin & Hobbes crossover, Gen - Eloise and Calvin have adventures. Delightfully written in the style of Eloise.

Open Beta by [archiveofourown.org profile] aristgd - Anthropomorfic, Dreamwidth/Fandom, Fandom/Livejournal - The kind of story that reminds me exactly why I love anthropomorfic. A remarkably accurate fictional representation of fandom's love affair with Dreamwidth and with Livejournal.

Delicious by [livejournal.com profile] newredshoes - Eddie Izzard Stand-Up routines - Vikings and Canadians and Nazis, oh my! Reads like it really could be an Eddie Izzard routine.

Clap, Damn You by [personal profile] naraht) - RPF - Classical Composers, Benjamin Britten/Peter Pears - Every thing I know about these guys I learned from [personal profile] naraht's posts about them. Nevertheless I was able to follow this fic with no problems at all. Witty and clever and very authentic-feeling.

Nothing Rhymes With Ignatieff But Orange by [personal profile] trouble - RPF - Canadian Politics, Gen - OMG LOVE. In which Elizabeth May runs Canadian politics from her Secret Eco-Friendly Underground Lair in New Glasgow. So. Much. Awesome.

Second Guessing by [livejournal.com profile] carlanime - RPF - Canadian Politics, Gen - Stephen Harper is plagued by self-doubt, and Peter MacKay is plagued by his crush on Stephen Harper. Unrequited love, and kittens. Well, references to kittens. Really, what's not to love!

And Count Myself a King of Infinite Space by [personal profile] aria - Gen - post-Hard Core Logo Billy Tallent meets pre-Slings & Arrows Geoffrey Tennant. Two men who know better than anyone exactly how hard it is to shake off your past. Aria draws parallels between the two stories that I'd never seen and now can't imagine how I ever missed them. Also, her Geoffrey voice is perfect.
