So I figured I'd put together a list of my favourite stories from 2010 (though some may be a little older). Killing Elvis
by hradzka - Aliens fandom, OFCs and OMCs. A hilarious epistolary fic and one of the breakout hits of Yuletide 2009.Almost No One Makes It Out
, a brilliant and incisive Iron Man AU, casting Tony as himself - but without the class and wealth privilege. 水火
, an Avatar: the Last Airbender story. It's an amazing
look at Azula post-series, coming back to herself and finding a new way to live.The One Where The Fire Nation Clearly Loses
, another Avatar fic by Miarr. Hot, funny Sokka/Zuko porn with spot-on voices. (I just reread it and oh, SOKKA.
) Normally I am not one for stories that are pure porn, but this one's hilarious because
it's porn. Enigmatic Absurdities
by Eponine, a House/Angel crossover where House winds up trying to diagnose what's wrong with Angel. It's four years old but I only stumbled across it this year so it might be new to some of y'all too.Nerds of the Earth, take note!
, an Iron Man/Leverage crossover where Hardison gets coerced into doing a job for SHIELD.Agent Afloat Atlantis
by Mhalachai, a SGA/NCIS crossover AU set at the end of season 5 NCIS and mid-S5 SGA. When Vance breaks up Gibbs' team after Jenny's death, Ziva is sent to Atlantis as NCIS's Agent Afloat.A Partial Map Of Your TARDIS (Subject To Change)
by alibi_factory. Doctor Who fandom, 11th Doctor-ish but not really spoilery. I've recced this before but it's so good I have to rec it again. It's a beautiful, whimsical set of maps to the TARDIS, complete with follies and indulgences and it just makes me flap my hands around incoherently.War Games
, a hundred thousand words of Star Trek Reboot plotty awesomeness. It's Kirk/Spock with fantastic original characters and an engrossing storyline.My Home and Native Land
by Copperbadge. A SGA story in which Ronon is looking for a tribe to call his own, and finds one in an unlikely place. I love this story for Ronon's characterisation.Working Around The Crazy
by Peroxidepest. A Burn Notice/Supernatural crossover (spoilers for S3 Burn Notice and S5 Supernatural) where Lucifer's looking for a new host and has settled on Michael Westen - but Michael has other ideas, and the sang-froid to test Lucifer's patience.Concession
, a brilliantly creepy story about Christine Everhart writing an investigative piece about the disappearance of Pepper Potts and Tony Stark. This is the kind of story that really sticks with you later.Five Universes
by quigonejinn. A brilliant Iron Man five things fic that, unusually for the format, makes some really incisive comments about the characters.
...okay, it's four am and I have to get to bed at a semi-sane hour. So, more later, I hope.
