  1. Summary

    Short and introspective pieces, mainly addressing questions or issues raised by canon.

    Probably the best story here is the most recent one, "my joy would be complete" (The Magnus Archives), but my favourite is "I'll Remember April" (History Boys).

  2. Summary

    Stories where the romantic relationship(s) are the central focus, and the plot is secondary or non-existent. I think most of these are pretty accessible even if you don't know the canon.

    Probably the best story here is either "Between the shores of your souls" (Rogue One) or “be yourself my ally” (Wonder Woman), but my favourite is "Tired Boys and Wired Eyes" (Bandom).

  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.

  5. 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 “A Good Dog in a Dark Place” (Yuletide mini-fandom: Vitamin Water ad), but my favourite is "And Other Animals" (Hitchhiker's Guide).

    Summary

    “I could devour you,” Samiel says gently, and Jay can feel the heat of his words sinking into his translator. “Won't you let me, pretty human? I'd make it ever so good for you.” His voice is intimate, filthy, that of a lover; of a predator that has caught its prey.

    Or:

    Wing Commander Jason Lane is doing his best. He's got a political coup to stop; a peace treaty to negotiate; half a planet out to kill him and, oh yes, Samiel.

    Always, Samiel.

    Summary

    “What? It’s totally an improvement. He’s not scowling, or dating bad guys, or slinking around in unsanitary places. Still a bit paranoid, but what can you do. At least he’s a lot easier to get along with when you can buy his affections with ear rubs.”

    “And you always wanted a dog,” Sheriff added wryly.

    “And I always wanted a dog.”

    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.
