  1. Summary

    Stories where the jokes are the point. I think they're better if you have at least some familiarity with the canon.

    Probably the best story here is "Captain's Log: Stardate Unknown" (The High Life), but my favourite is "And Other Animals" (Hitchhiker's Guide).

  2. Summary

    These stories are about the process of learning how to live your best and fullest life after trauma -- and how only you can define what that means. I think they're better if you know the canon, but should be accessible with just a quick wikipedia summary.

    There are only two stories in here for now, and I love them both equally.

  3. Summary

    These are the stories where I really fight it out with canon.

    "Eruv" (Lynes & Mathey series) is both probably the best and definitely my favourite.

  4. Summary

    Crossovers! Some are Discworld fusions, some are excuses for characters from different canons to hook up, some are both.

    I'm having a hard time picking a best or a favourite -- just pick anything from 2007 onwards where you recognise the fandoms.

  5. Summary

    Stories with a crime, heist or con as the A-plot. You probably need to know the premise of each canon going in, but I don't think you need to be deeply familiar with them.

    Probably the best story here is "Load, Misdirection, Switch" (Inception), which is also my favourite.

    Summary

    In which Susan identifies "Where's My Cow" as a proto-talismanic anchor for Young Sam's continued health and existence, and tries very hard not to wonder what the Vimes' butler does on his day off. There may also be a lesson about the meaning of Hogswatch, but no one wants to talk about that.

    Incredibly good Pratchett-voice, and a lovely, sharp, funny, kind story, too. I really like Susan's journey here.

    There's a lot to think about in this one -- all the characters here have such different ways of seeing sexuality and "out"ness that their arguments keep missing each other.

    Summary

    She stands on deck, weight shifting as natural as breathing with each nickitut nickitut of wheels on rails, & she shields her eyes with her hand – her natural one, made of meat not metal – & you ask, out of what stock does one begin to whittle Abacat Naphi?

    Really, really, really well done. Works perfectly as an insight into what makes the Captain who and what she is.

    Summary

    This is a stupid fanfiction and I shouldn't have written it. I have no shame. Don't like, don't read.

    Abandon hope all ye who enter here . . .

    I can't believe something I wrote inspired something this beautiful.
