Oooh, a lot! I used to collect them, but… the fics are saved somewhere I can’t find right now but here’s my favourites (they’re all Ben/Leslie centric):
Caitlin’s It’s Still The Same Old Story
cmdrjade did a lovely Parks/Doctor Who crossover that I am ridiculously sad I can’t find, but someone here might so check the notes?
Honestly though, the Parks fandom has an array of the most wonderful fic writers. Many of them my friends, which is why I am absolutely lucky to have been in this fandom when it was starting to really grow because I got to request for so many and was always obliged. Just go to this livejournal page or this (again, Ben/Leslie centric) and you’ll have fun going through them.
AHEHEHEHE I FORGOT RACHEL DID A RATHER EXTENSIVE LIST THAT IS BEAUTIFULLY ORGANISED BY EPISODES/AUS/DRABBLES - do read the summer camp AU called Dear Friend, because dear fucking lord
I tend to read a lot of shippy fics in this fandom. If not Ben/Leslie, it’s Ben/April, or Ben/Ann? There were a LOAD of great ones in the kink meme from like, season 3 that got a lot of people in the fandom into Ben/ANYONE. Like, there were some pretty good threesome fics in there, not gonna lie. It’s why so many people who started out with the fandom (which really started growing in season 3) are open to any ship. :P
Hunger Games AU where Effie is chosen as a Slayer and Haymitch is her watcher.
On the fourth day she kills a vampire and Haymitch tells her he’s her Watcher. At home she sits in the shower until the hot water runs out and she dyes her hair sky blue.
The curious tale of how the Avengers adopted Maria Hill and her daughter.
“I still can’t decide if it’s funny or terrifying,” Pepper murmurs as Pippa beams through a mouthful of beads. “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes wrapped around the pinky of a six month old girl.”
GUYS I CAN’T HANDLE THIS FIC
No title, because it was just a request on LJ, but the premise is basically Chaff and Seeder mentoring Rue and Thresh. It’s just a short thing, that I’m gaining feels for. I’m going to recc everything written by FernWithy because she’s expanded so much in the Panem world, with all the characters she’s written so far. Just read her stories, okay?
“But if he does protect me, then he’ll have to kill me, and they’ll hate him anyway,” Rue says. Thresh looks shocked. She shrugs. “I figured that out already. You go off one direction and I’ll go the other, and then we won’t have to worry about it unless we’re the last two.”
Haymitch’s POV during Catching Fire. The author’s also got other stories that tie-in with it and MJ, from different POVs including Johanna, Delly Cartwright, etc.
I think the reason I enjoyed Catching Fire the most is because how it goes behind the scenes as to what goes on behind the games. I mean, obviously, we don’t see it in the during the the third Quell, but it gets touched on in the Victory Tour and afterwards. The politics behind it, and all those alliances that was happening between mentors. It’s the one reason I sometimes want to tear my hair out for only seeing things through Katniss’ eyes.
This fic has everything I wanted in the books, and more. Give it a read :D
Ah! This is surprising! I barely talk about Harry Potter on Tumblr (though I reblog it), and I don’t think I’ve let people know of my obsession with the next generation aside from the reblogs of nextgen fancasting/graphics.
I’m not a huge Marauders fan enough to have read lots of fic, and most of the time they were mostly Lily/Snape fics before their friendship fell apart. There was one really good one I read that was kinda Snape-centric by this author/fanartist I follow on deviantart, that… um, I can’t remember anymore. And there was this other one fic with Marauders friendship that… I can’t remember either D: I swear, nonny, this would be a lot easier if my external harddrive would actually open. All the fics I’ve saved from 2006-2011 disappeared along other things :/
BUT! I can rec you some REALLY REALLY REALLY good next gen fics. I’m a huge fan of the supposed next gen trio (Scorpius/Rose/Albus) though I’ve always been a snob as to where there put Albus. I’m very much adamant he’s a Slytherin.
Anyway, some good reads (most the trio or Albus):
And fuck fuck fuck. There was a really good one by Cassandra Clare (of Draco Trilogy fame) that she took down after she became a published author, and I’m just ridiculously annoyed because that was my favourite portrayal of Scorpius in a fic. Still as arrogant as his dad, but very protective of Albus, and friendly with Rose. I’m trying to remember her old lj handle, because maybe I could find in somehow? AUGH I JUST WISH MY FUCKING LACIE DRIVE DIDN’T BREAK DOWN OR SOMETHING
Updated the list, because I stumbled upon *the* prompt fill page.
[edit #2) Holy shit, I haven’t updated it so long. I’ve added at least ten new fics.
Delivery for M Holmes
Full of Stars (a sentence fic with a mix of A/M and S/J)
Spend All Your Time Waiting
Car Sex (adult content well duh)
The Ten Commandments (list fic, wing!fic - I think these are fallen angels trope fic requested on kink memes)
Facts about Mycroft’s P.A. (Anthea list fic)
Eyes That Burn Like Cigarettes (Anthea character study again. There’s a ton of these, but the ending made me laugh)
Anthea (no title; fill) (pure fluff, tbh but whatreeeveerrr)
Shortest fill of my life (lol no title) (shortest fill ever and I am fucking cracking up)
Five Drabbles: Sixth Sense, Thunder, Lightning, Christmas, She (mixed drabbles)
Memory (regarding the speculation about Anthea’s memory, also probably the closest to canon!Mycroft)
Mycroft’s Companion (What if Anthea was just the Doctor’s Companion who decided to stay behind in London?)
A Place Called Home
5 insignificant things Sherlock Holmes deleted from his “hard drive” and one he just can’t seem to forget (has a small bit with Mycroft)
(prompt fill - no title)
Diffidentia (lots of Latin here, just as a warning)
Social Anxiety (this is honestly fantastic, a different take to Anthea’s character)
Boundaries (Not ship!fic but still fun)
You’re Not, You Don’t
So Often do I Need (10 genres fic)
Idle Hands (Anthea attempts to quit smoking)
The One That Matters (another first meeting story)
How It Happens (prompt: “I never meant to be a political assassin, but he invited me out to the point, and he tried to kiss me.”)
No title (Another prompt fic: Anthea is given the job to assassinate Mycroft. The end resulting in his hiring her)
No title (Ahaha, Adele wrote me a message-fic on here. It’s short, and incomplete but SO FUCKING DELIGHTFUL)
The Card (Mildly depressing. Just after Reichenbach)
Armistice Day (short Apocalyptic fic. Sort of :P)
Manifesto of Pataphysical Echo (short Doctor Who (sort of)/Sherlock crossover where Anthea isn’t really a human)
Importance (a pretty great gender equality fic. Anthea is chivalrous)
Longer one-chaptered fics:
She Can Get What She Came For (adult content >_________>)
Evelyn Harriet Holmes Watson (more focused on an OC character who is effing precious but has bits of A/M and is definitely S/J)
Grecian Lament (Anthea fic, eventual Mycroft/Anthea)
A Day in the Life (purely a Mycroft fic, but still enjoyable so I’ve added it here)
Whatever Love Means (I don’t even know. I just cackled at the end)
The Art of Scheduling or How Mycroft Came to Realise He Was Well and Truly Fucked (this might be my favourite of EVERS)
Equivalence (genderfluid fic that leaves me clutching at my face for dear life)
Distinction (counterpart to the above)
A Gift from M
Yes (Anthea fic, meeting up with Mycroft for the first time)
No, or, A Very Delilah Day (sequel to the above)
The Problem of a Miserable Assistant (not sure of the sounds I just made; also the amount of fluff people manage to squeeze on these two is surprising and IT IS GOOD)
Tesselation (good God, headcanons are FUN)
En Pointe (um o_o it’s written nicely, is all I can say. I don’t know why I linked it, but I do like how it’s written, so)
Deus ex Mycroft (not really a ship-fic, but more of how the two work with each other)
War (hints at the ship, but still a hilarious read)
One Sentence Stories (it’s one sentence stories, with all the characters but I put this here because it is LONG. SO MANY GOODIES! just as joyful to read. I can’t remember if there were any specific!Anthea ones but there’s some great Mycroft in there)
Five Birthdays (number 4 is relevant to our interest, also a few other ships)
Studies in Power (You know power when you see it, and Mycroft Holmes is the most tempting thing you’ve ever seen. - holy shit, just READ)
Comforting Power (sequel to above, somewhere after Reichenbach)
Credibility (Anthea constantly asks Mycroft out, only he thinks she’s making fun of him. … this is a lot more serious than how I explain it)
In Momento Temporis (More Anthea, no actual shipping but it has Mycroft)
Appearances (My GOD this is cracky as hell and hilarious)
(Fill, no title) (Anthea attempts to show an oblivious Mycroft she’s attracted to him; this is almost so cracky due to the fluff and I’m just cackling at the most random places, but I actually like it)
Five Ways Mycroft is an Awesome Uncle
Incompetent (friendship fic of sorts)
Masters of Disguise (my current favourite fic right now. Author’s dealing with irl things so it’s still at chapter 13, but everything up till then is still fantastic so go give it a read. Anthea and Moriarty are really siblings with an troubled incestuous relationship that gets gets worse when Anthea starts working for Mycroft Holmes. JUST. READ. IT.)
A collection of 100 drabbles (4 parts) that includes all the cast. It’s so wonderful because all of them seem to intertwine with each other, especially with the characterisation. I think my favourite (besides the Anthea ones) are where Sally and Anderson are actual people who respect Lestrade, but still hate Sherlock. It makes sense that one of the reasons Sally would dislike Sherlock is because she thinks highly of Lestrade, and whatnot. ANYWAY. SO. GOOD. Nothing shippy between Mycroft and Anthea, but the drabbles with the both if them are some pretty damn good characterisation.
(ps, the comments next to them are mostly for Grace’s benefit, whom I sent this entire list to in e-mail format)
Sherlock Holmes is promoted to crown prince at the age of 13 after Mycroft abdicates the throne. Confined within the palace walls, his mind seeks thrills and adventure. John Hamish Watson is the son of an aristocratic family closely tied to the monarch. His sister, Harriet, is expected to marry Sherlock when they are adults. While he’s attempting to sneak out of the palace, Sherlock runs into John. Meeting their families’ expectations, following society’s unspoken laws, and remaining true to themselves become increasingly difficult as the years pass and they fall in love with each other. AU.
