Apr 20 – Apr 25: Hover over the link to get any warning(s).

Boy Meets World: The Next Thing by [archiveofourown.org profile] Merry - Shawn/Cory, General Audiences. When he took a step back from his Master Plan and looked around, there was a whole world there. It was scary as hell, but he thought it was probably going to be okay. (5,965 words)

Cory/Shawn Snow Day For Allyndra by [livejournal.com profile] oncethrown - Cory/Shawn, NR. College snow days were so much better than high school snow days, Shawn reflected. I love how horrible their first time was and their relationship still all new, loves this. (1,615 words)

Doctor Who/Sherlock: Second Fiddle (or here) by [personal profile] gracie_musica - Donna/John, PG-13. They... have a secretary. The thought is sort of terrifying. I'm in love with the author’s characterization, and I love Donna being awesome. Donna and John as a couple is just an amazing idea. (WIP: 4,188 words)

Thy Mother's Glass by [livejournal.com profile] flecalicious - Sherlock/John (later parts), Amy/Rory, PG-13. Mycroft, they decide, and then seven years later Sherlock; alien names for not-quite-alien children. In which Sherlock's parents are called Amy and Rory and he's born outside of time. This is so heartbreaking beautiful and totally believable story. (WIP: 8,000 words)

Dresden Files: A Kiss from a Handsome… Mafia Boss by [livejournal.com profile] jade_dragoness - Harry Dresden/John Marcone, PG-13. Post ‘Turn Coat’. Fairy godmothers are a freaking pain! I love the use of the fairytale clichés, so funny to read, love it. (11,790 words)

Inception: (It seems to me that I'm definitely) Hearing the best that I've heard by [livejournal.com profile] merle_p - Arthur/Cobb, PG-13. Arthur makes mix tapes. Dom is oblivious. Both are old-fashioned and possibly emotionally stunted. I love reading a clueless!Cobb. (6,850 words)

disguise fair nature with hard-favoured rage by [livejournal.com profile] 1001cranes - Arthur/Eames, NC-17. Eames is beginning to realize how greatly he underestimated Arthur, or perhaps overestimated Cobb. He was so convinced Arthur was propping Cobb up — keeping him going, keeping him in line — he never realized how greatly Cobb was holding Arthur back, and that, perhaps, all original evidence to the contrary, it was Arthur who needed Cobb, and not the other way around. This is really good, one of the few Arthur/Eames fics I have read and I don't think anything else can top it for me. (17,215 words)

A Brighter Thing: Art Masterpost by [livejournal.com profile] fanlay - Arthur/Eames, SFW. Eames walks away from the arrivals gate, incomprehensible chatter swirling around him, and the heavy weight of the PASIV in his hand, never dreaming that this machine is real – that it will bring him anything more than a tidy profit. I haven’t read the story but the art is so freakin’ beautiful, I love the color palette, the line work, the poses on the fighting one.

Iron Man: Your Fixed Point by [livejournal.com profile] quigonejinn - R. Genderflip AU. Identity and gender and Obadiah Stane and Pepper Potts and Jim Rhodes and Tony Stark. Just to clarify: there are two women in the Funvee. Amazing story, some parts were hard for me to read regardless, anyone who is a Tony fan should read this. (14,996 words)

Iron Man/Spider-Man: Clunkie by [archiveofourown.org profile] Basingstoke - Peter/Tony, Explicit. Movieverse. Comment (11,757 words)

Sherlock BBC: Lestrade Understands that Sherlock Needs by [livejournal.com profile] blooms84 - Sherlock/OMC, Sherlock/Lestrade, NC-17. Incredible. Just bloody incredible. It’s like watching a fucking magician or a mentalist. (3,570 words)

Blue Steel [working title] by [livejournal.com profile] gloria_scott - Gen, PG-13. Sherlock, John, Lestrade: A writer interviews the boys to research a new tv show he's writing. A cop show starring a character based on Lestrade. I love the interview format, all the characters felt in character and I love that Sherlock's interview was the last and best one. (3,252 words)

The Distance Getting Close by [livejournal.com profile] morganstuart - Gen, PG. What Lestrade needed that night was distance. What he wanted was a few hours alone in which to grieve. What he got was Sherlock Holmes picking the lock of his front door. I love this, Sherlock being both a jerk and a nice guy. Love the progress in their friendship. (2,580 words)

Supernatural: Older, Too (or here) by [livejournal.com profile] prettify - Dean/Castiel/Sam, NC-17. Spoilers for 4x22. It's peaceful inside Bobby's when they celebrate Sam's birthday, but there's a storm outside and Dean's the one feeling older. I like this a whole lot, I miss reading about season four Castiel. I want more of this threesome. (6,200 words)

Toy Story: Under the Table and Dreaming by [livejournal.com profile] snooter - Sid/Andy, NC-17. Andy met Sid when he was four years old, and while some things change, a lot of things stay the same. I can't believe this even exists and the writing is brilliant. I love Andy’s POV, how Sid was flesh out with all his flaws and good qualities. The sex was filthy like I image two teenage boys will do it. (15,000 words)

It Starts with the Hat by [archiveofourown.org profile] florahart - Andy/OMC, Explicit. Andy doesn't expect to see someone so familiar at college. I love that Andy called the hot guy in his class Woody, just love it. (2,277 words)
