Day 13

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

I didn't get around to posting my Yuletide recs this year, so this seems like the perfect chance to get it done. :)

1. 3:49 AM, March 26th (6065 words) by galaxysoup
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Breakfast Club (1985)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: John Bender/Brian Johnson
Characters: Brian Johnson (Breakfast Club), John Bender, Allison Reynolds, Andrew Clark, Claire Standish
Additional Tags: Post-Apocalypse, D/s undertones

A brain, an athlete, a basket-case, a princess, and a criminal walk into an apocalypse.

My Notes: I loved this. The character bits were fantastic, and I laughed throughout the whole thing. Really fun!

2. School Spirit (Or Lack Thereof) (1142 words) by Missy
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Calvin & Hobbes
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Calvin' Father/Calvin's Mother (Calvin and Hobbes)
Characters: Calvin's Mother (Calvin and Hobbes), Calvin's Father (Calvin and Hobbes)
Additional Tags: High School, Pre-Canon, First Kiss, First Meetings, Bugs & Insects, Yuletide Treat, First Love

It's her friend Susan's fault she's standing here in the hallway with a bottle of meal worms in her hand and pantaloons slung over her shoulder, talking to this tall goofy guy with glasses sliding down his nose.

Or, Calvin's Mom meets Calvin's Dad.

My Notes: I love this fic. I cannot even say how wonderful it is. Just read it.

3. All Told (2816 words) by 20thcenturyvole
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Crimson Peak (2015)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Edith Cushing, Alan McMichael, Thomas Sharpe
Additional Tags: some description of injuries and corpses, no mention of the dog

“Well?” Edith says, when the silence stretches too long. “What do you think?”

“I think,” the Inspector says, “That I have never heard a better retelling of Bluebeard.”

My Notes: There was so much potential for what could come after the movie's end, and this was my favorite of all the fic that showed up in Yuletide this year. It completely captured the Gothic edge of the events while still making the aftermath realistic.

4. Relocation (2530 words) by Setcheti
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Ghostbusters (Movies)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Library Ghost (Ghostbusters), Peter Venkman
Additional Tags: Yuletide Treat, Post-Movie

The books had always been Miss Eleanor's life. Could she trust the man who promised she wouldn't have to leave them?

My Notes: I actually had tears in my eyes at the end of this. It was sweet and lovely and warm and my new head canon.

5. Whatever You Throw at Me (2568 words) by Mosca
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: iZombie (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Major Lilywhite/Liv Moore
Characters: Liv Moore, Major Lilywhite
Additional Tags: Established Relationship, Zombies

Liv learns to love the many people she becomes, and so does Major.

My Notes: There's so much to like about this. I laughed more than once, the voices felt genuine, and even though I'm not a Major fan, I adored seeing the relationship through the lens of her different brain influences.

6. Never Let Me Go (2007 words) by thecarlysutra
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Jurassic Park (Movies), Jurassic World (2015)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Owen Grady & The Raptor Squad
Characters: Owen Grady, The Raptor Squad, Barry (Jurassic Park)

SUMMARY: Pre-film, Owen and the Raptor Squad tend to each other.
AUTHOR’S NOTES: Written for thisissirius’s 2015 Yuletide. Thanks so much to Carla for the beta.

My Notes: There were a couple raptor fics, but this was my favorite. The payoff was a real treat.

7. With Thanks to Santayana (9924 words) by Fahye
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Jurassic World (2015), Jurassic Park (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Claire Dearing/Owen Grady
Characters: Claire Dearing, Owen Grady, Lex Murphy
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, Yuletide Treat

Some people say that there were two bloodbaths. There was Jurassic World itself, and then there was what came after. Claire Dearing and the art of survival.

My Notes: One of the best fics I've read in a while. The writing was intelligent and vivid, the pacing was tight, and the storytelling was spot-on. These were the characters I knew from the movie. Excellent fic.
