    Fantastically written pastiche with some really wonderful original worldbuilding, feels like it could have come straight out of the novel.

    Summary

    In search of their latest way home, Hank and Eric find themselves lost in a frozen wasteland, far from rescue.

    Twenty feet. Ten feet. Five. He was reaching out. His fingertips just barely brushed the Vial, and in response it glowed brighter, welcoming, a wash of sunlight warmth against his face. Hank took another step forward, the way home within his reach—

    —and the ice broke.

    An all-around-fantastic D&D Cartoon story that you can see play out in your head. A Hank & Eric adventure with a really satisfying emotional resolution, with heaps of fun h/c (snuggling for warmth!) without neglecting the others. If you at all like the fandom, you should read this.

    In a slightly different timeline, two great men with a shared past meet for one last time a few months after the battle of Waterloo.

    Is this part of my Unmixable-verse? I don't know. It surely can be read that way. It can be read separately from it. You choose.

    I really love this exploration of the dragon-rider bond and the idea that it's difficult and hard for the rider to adjust to, not just a pure delight. Really nice OCs as well.

    A fantastic look into Connie's mind and at the whole saga from her perspective, especially her relationship with Michael -- it's hard to take an unsympathetic character and make them at once sympathetic and yet still themselves, and this manages it just like the Godfather movies do. Really great.

    Summary

    Jack wakes up in the SGC to the news that his team is dead. If he weren't hearing the news from General Hammond he might not believe it--and even so it's not quite real until he sees the bodies. Once he does, he knows nothing is ever going to be the same again.

    Sam wakes up in the SGC to the news that she is now the senior member of SG-1. Jack O'Neill is dead. For Sam and her team, nothing is ever going to be the same again.

    SG-1 might be able to go on like this--Sam's going to keep her team together if it kills her--but a man who's lost his team is capable of anything, and Jack's about to do the unthinkable to make things right.

    Summary

    In the Scriptures, the story of Michal begins with love and ends with barrenness and death:

    And Michal, Saul's daughter, loved David; and they told Saul, and the thing pleased him. 1 Samuel 18:20

    And Michal the daughter of Saul had no child until the day of her death. 2 Samuel 6:23

    Much might happen in between such short, bookend verses. This is the story of two young people who fell in love, who drifted out of it, and why.

    This story is -- basically it's a really wonderful piece of literary fiction starring the Addams (which would improve most literary fiction immensely IMO). It's funny and lovely and really hit me both as a daughter and a mother.
