    My favourite Person of Interest fanvid. Great editing, fantastic song choice, really speaks to the characters.

    This is one of the best alternate universe - canon divergence series I have had the pleasure of reading.

    There are plenty of very good fic where the events of The Hobbit go differently but I recommend this whole series as a must read. It is a brilliant epic.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I have linked to Katie Forsythe's webpage, The Seventeeth Step, rather than directly to the fic, The Lucky One.

    Although that story is my favourite, I really would like to recommend everything she has written.

    If I had to sum up Katie Forsythe's writing in one word it would be 'romantic.' It's not purple prose nor does her writing have a lot of graphic sex, it's just... incredibly romantic. In a really good way, the kind of way where you feel genuinely moved.

    Katie is a connoisseur of the works of Arthur Conan Doyle and writes Sherlock/Watson stories usually based around or on the events of the canon. She has canon Watson's voice down pat.

    I've been longing for the opportunity to recommend her somewhere and I hope you will gain as much enjoyment from her works as I have.

    Everything KouriArashi writes is good. I mean it.

    I have read everything she has posted on Ao3 in the Teen Wolf fandom and have no doubt that she rocks every other fandom she writes for too. This author is also incredibly prolific: if she posts a story you can usually expect at least one or two chapters a week until it is finished (and it is always finished).

    I came to the Teen Wolf fandom on the ship that most people sail, Derek/Stiles. That's how I came across KouriArashi's writing... but I've got to admit, she's the person that turned me onto other pairings within the fandom as well! Right now I'd say I'm more of a Peter Hale/Chris Argent shipper - and that's mostly KouriArashi's fault.

    KouriArashi's largest series, The Sum of Its Parts, is a prime example of how wonderful the type of fic where the main character is a very special snowflake but also just a guy can be. The Searching Ceremonies series, however, remains my favourite. I love Divided We Stand and the rest are pretty good too! KouriArashi is excellent at long, plot-filled fic.

    What are you doing still reading the recommendation? Go! Go read them all!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I know Katsu's work from a good decade ago... I feel old... when I used to read her Gundam Wing fic. She has a very engaging writing style full of joie de vivre.
    The Calculator is without a doubt my favourite story of hers.
    It has very amusing footnotes in the style of the late, great Terry Pratchett. Katsu is very good at writing action and though the story is Gen the interactions between Clint and Loki were so enjoyable to read that I actually ended up kind of shipping them. Talk about a rare pairing!
    I recommend reading The Calculator as a stand-alone story.
    It is the main story in a small series but I wouldn't bother reading the last, incomplete installment of that series, The Law of Unintended Consequences, because I don't believe it will ever be completed. A sad fact considering it had a lot of promise.
