SSar's Beast
morbane
We got home yesterday afternoon. Our flights were pleasantly uneventful, and I got some sleep on the LAX-SYD flight. I have at least two holiday posts I mean to make, but before then, there is fic to write, and even more importantly, fic to acknowledge.

The Crossovering collection (new this year) and the Fic Corner collection (in its second year) both went live recently, and I received a splendid selection of gifts.

I was a late pinch hit for Crossovering, and to my delight, three people wrote me all the possible pair combinations of Push (2009), Dollhouse (TV), and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV).

a plan without planning (1480 words) by theladyscribe
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV), Marvel Cinematic Universe, Push (2009)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Leo Fitz, Cassie Holmes, Nick Gant, Jemma Simmons
Additional Tags: Crossover, Shady Government Organizations, Some Humor
Summary: Leo meets Cassie in a quiet bar just outside of Washington, DC. Jemma's gone to use the ladies' room, and he's drinking his pint, minding his own business, when this girl with purple hair sits down next to him and says, "Come here often?"

Theladyscribe's fic is a fine set of shenanigans with a lot of fun references to other comics universes, especially the X-Men. There are also some tantalising hints for further developments after the end of the story.


Let's Call It a Job Interview (2081 words) by Teaotter
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (TV), Dollhouse
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Phil Coulson, Melinda May, Topher Brink
Additional Tags: Minor Violence, Coercion, Consent Issues, Mind Control, canon level slavery issues, Dubious Morality, Unreliable Narrator, canon level possession issues
Summary: Topher just wants to get back to work.

In TeaOtter's fic, poor Topher is bouncing around like a pinball on a somewhat-enforced vacation. Well, "poor" - Topher is always an interesting character to sympathise with, and his negative personality traits are apparent here. It's a lot of fun watching May and Coulson team up to handle him.


To Boldly Go (444 words) by misura
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dollhouse, Push (2009)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Cassie Holmes, Topher Brink
Additional Tags: crossovering treat
Summary: The great escape.

In misura's story, Cassie and Topher are an even wackier team. I love how Cassie convinces Topher to come along and I can only imagine how cracky it would be for them to actually work together.


For Fic Corner, my assigned author wrote me a full fic AND a treat in the same fandom, Margaret Mahy's The Pirates' Mixed-Up Voyage.

If Wishes Were Fishes (1645 words) by storm_queen
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Pirates' Mixed-Up Voyage - Margaret Mahy
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Lionel Wafer, Toothpick, Brace-and-Bit, Winkle, Toad
Summary: "Though they had plenty to eat they did not seem to be getting very rich and, after all, a week seems a long time when you are yearning to make your fortune at once."

The pirates' adventure began even before they set foot on Island Nine Hundred and Ninety-Nine.

This story uses a sarcastic, sea-lawyer of a talking fish to fill in the gap between the casting off of the Sinful Sausage and the pirates' first encounters with Packy and the jigsaw pieces and all.


After Hours (687 words) by storm_queen
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Pirates' Mixed-Up Voyage - Margaret Mahy
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Thomas Sump, Hermione Hatchett
Additional Tags: Burglary
Summary: Employees of Silkweed's Academy are expected to commit the occasional after-hours act of villainy.

This treat is especially delightful and captures Hatchett and Sump's voices perfectly. I would recommend it even if you don't know the canon.


I have also been writing things, but I have (somewhat arbitrarily) resolved not to promote them until I finish that Rarewomen fic from May. May.
