Honestly, I have no reason to be opening this site, except that every now and then I read stories so good, so honest, that I want to tell people about them...and I guess this is my place to do just that. So forgive me for indulging myself, and enjoy!

Buffy the Vampire Slayer...and, uh, Hercules: The Legendary Jouneys

Okay, I know what you're thinking: this is a crossover that cannot possibly make sense, or be any good. But after reading When Hellmouths Collide, trust me--you'll become a True Believer in the deliciousness that stems from 1) a good sense of humor, 2) a good sense of character; 3) the ability to write a damn fine story.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer...and Star Trek: The Next Generation!

Okay, so I have a thing for crossovers, but you have to read this story!!! Stupid Portal is one of the best things I've come across in a long time. Tara Keezer joins these two disparate universes, creating a story that is one part action, one part romance, and a blender full of funny. Oh, but you'll have to put aside some time to read it. 'Stupid Portal' is long (but full of yummy goodness).

While you're at it, you should also check out Tara's Buffy/Anita Blake crossover. Very good Giles/Dawn father/daughter interaction, and I love seeing Anita Blake, Nathaniel, and Jean-Claude in any setting as well handled as this one.

Stargate SG-1

Campfire Questions, Three-in-the-Morning Thoughts by Perri
I have become a Stargate fan. Don't know how it happened; I must have been drawn in by the humor, the adventure, the fine writing, and the cool (and in some cases, very hot) actors. So anyway, I'm a new convert, and Perri just stokes the fires with her fine storytelling. 'Campfire Questions' is a story about friendship; the good, quiet, comfort two people can take in each other. It is a delightful read.

Changing of the Guard by Ecolea
This, my friends, is a novel. A novel that just happens to star the fine characters of Stargate, and one of my most favorite imaginary men ever: Methos. That's right, our fine five thousand year old surviver and sexy bookworm. Take me, now.


Unbound by Te
Speaking of Methos, he's also the star in this wonderful take on X2, which explains how the heck our favorite Immortal ended up working for the bad guys.

The Devil and the Queen by Mad With Power
This is just the most delightful story - a truly cheerful, exuberant read. Kurt, of course, is a pirate in a tale of his own creation, while Storm is...well, his Queen of the seas.

DC Superheroes

An Unusual Mission by Adrian Tullberg
While I really dig the whole Batman/Catwoman thing that's going down, I wonder how the writers can reconcile the burgeoning romance between Bats and Wonder Woman that's taking place in JLA? Oh, there's trouble brewing, for sure. But anyway, An Unusual Mission is a hilarious look at what might happen if Batman and Wonder Woman finally did begin to "get it on." The parts are a little out of order. Part One is linked above - to get to Part Four, go here.


Taste of Death, Breath of Life by Apocalypse1
On Enterprise, there has always been a nice, somewhat quirky, chemistry between Trip and T'pol. Apocalypse1 pefectly captures this energy between them, telling a haunting story that is both dark and sweet.


The Gift by Maystone
I am ever so bitter about the demise of Firefly. I mean, sure, it's going to be put on DVD, and who knows - Joss may perform a miracle and get it back on television. But not for a while, and that's just a cryin' shame. Maystone makes you feel that loss all the more keenly, writing a lovely character piece that focuses on Mal's feelings for Kaylee.


Coffee, Right in Your Home by Dyce
Third in her 'I Drive the Car' series, and a lovely continuation of Lex and Chloe's blossoming friendship.

Pirates of the Carribean

Shackles and the Sun by Nix
This is just a cool, sweet story - kind of how you might wish the end of the movie had played out.
