Yep still doing the challenge.

Day 2

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

Here are three fics I rec. They're all very different, but they have one thing in common.

The Boy Who Spoke With Ghosts by [archiveofourown.org profile] AvocadoLove.

An Inception/The Sixth Sense crossover. It's a lovely interpretation of the characters and their interaction with each other. The eerie feel of The Sixth Sense blends all too well with the creep factor that was Mal in Inception. There's also a very special ghost there in a a yellow dress and she's the reason I'm rec-ing this fic. In Kid!fic the kid is usually alive but even dead, this little girl is a wonderful presence in the fic and great foil for the characters.

The Quiver and Cry of my Heart by [archiveofourown.org profile] Electric_Apple.

A Hawaii Five-0 fic. It's actually part of a series, but can be easily read alone, I read it before I knew there were other fics in this 'verse. It's a story about Steve being deployed and those he leaves behind. It's quite poignant in places, but I get teary eyes at the drop of a hat so what do I know. But I love the way Danny is a father here to a little girl he loves, because she's Steve's.
A very heart warming Kid!Fic all around.

A Ring in a Black Sea by [livejournal.com profile] basingstoke.

A Stargate: Atlantis/Torchwood crossover. I don't read Stargate, I've never actually even seen the show, but I read this when I was on a Captain Jack in alien worlds binge and boy, is Jack far away from Torchwood in this one. There's a slow build and I think if you don't know either fandom that well you can be confused a bit in the beginning (I was), but the world building is lovely, as is the interaction between Jack and Teylas, showcasing how alien they are compared to the Stargate and Torchwood teams.
It's a great depiction of a different kind of family, the kind we chose, and rearranges itself as life changes.
There's a kid in there, somewhere, for a good reason.

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on me...an adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
