    Summary

    While playing host to the Narbons, Mell gets tracked down by a relative... of sorts. But hers isn't the only unexpected family reunion in store, and soon the whole crew is on a cross-country Narbon-vs.-Narbon chase. Blood may be thicker than water, but are nanites thicker than blood?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    For some reason, I didn't move on to Skin Horse after encountering and falling in love with Narbonic two-thirds or so of the way in. Now I may have to change that, because this is at once a totally spectacular post-canon Narbonic adventure and a dropped-in-at-the-deep-end Skin Horse caper, and while I haven't read the latter strip at all, the story is hyperactively madcap enough that it holds up regardless. Also, if I didn't know better, I'd seriously think I'd written this myself, because its style and structure remind me of my own Kim Possible/Narbonic crossover from some years back. (I emphasize that this is a reminds-me-in-a-good-way note, not a criticism or complaint.) Mad science has never been more fun than these characters make it, whether in Shaenon Garrity's hands or those of the present fanwriter.

    Noteworthy both for the direct look at Companion life from backstage and for the neatly executed reverse spin on Kerowyn's moment of Choice from By the Sword.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A brief, amusing look at afterlife in the Forest of Sorrows. And possibly an argument for either Vanyel or Stefan being a distant ancestor of Calvin's -- and, as the obvious corollary, Hobbes being a Firecat. (This story is not that fusion, but it might well lay the groundwork for such....)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Much of the tiny body of Pollifax fanfic takes place in New Jersey, between Mrs. Pollifax's espionage adventures. This particular story raises the stakes, though, by setting up a face-to-face confrontation between veteran operative John Sebastian Farrell and Emily's notoriously inquisitive neighbor Miss Hartshorne. Impressively, neither character blinks, and yet the resulting fireworks -- muted but undeniable -- arise from another angle entirely. The result is a thoughtful treatment of all three characters that catches the authentic Gilman tone.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A lovely, leisurely depiction of the evolution of a found family, perceptive and sensitive but not at all saccharine, invoking just the right touch of tension without devolving into angst. Very canon-aware, and yet I think it holds up independent of canon; this is first-class writing whether or not you know the series.
