Three fic recs

Ten minutes of non-obligatory activity: go!

Here are three fanfic stories I've read lately and liked (not counting Yuletide reading, which is still in progress.)


Carpetbaggers (119268 words) by faviconcofax
Chapters: 10/10
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Peter Pevensie, Lucy Pevensie, Susan Pevensie, Edmund Pevensie, OFC
Summary: The day after Aslan left, taking the magic with him, just about everyone else left, too.

After the coronation festivities, the real work begins. During/post "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe".

Really thorough thoughtful consideration of just what the state of Narnia must be to account for what we see in canon, and what it would take to become accepted rulers given that state. Engrossing, exciting, chilling in spots.

Boston Marriage (75193 words) by faviconpendrecarc
Chapters: 11/11
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC) - Fandom
Rating: Mature
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Sherlock Holmes/expensive violins, John Watson/OC
Characters: Ensemble Cast - Character
Summary: (see notes for warnings)

In which Jo Watson tries to take this therapy business into her own hands, London produces enough crimes of interest to satisfy even Sherlock Holmes, and the Bechdel test doesn't know what hit it. Game on.

There is way less casefic in Sherlock fandom than I, at least, would like (recs gladly taken), but this genderswap AU is full to the brim of terrific cases. Note: the sequel is a post-Reichenbach Falls story, written before season 2 of Sherlock, that leaves matters at a pause but not a conclusion.

Captain America's Art Crawl Adventure (2008 words) by faviconvictoria_p
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Captain America (2011), The Middleman (TV)
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Wendy Watson, The Middleman, Steve Rogers
Summary: "I think the more pertinent question is, how do we stop a giant glue monster from rampaging through Art Crawl?"

And finally, something much shorter and much sillier. Because, quite simply: Steve Rogers + Art Crawl = genius.
