Every Day Is a Reminder by ishie
[Calvin & Hobbes]
"There's a certain fear that some children share as they grow up, that whatever they do will never be as good as what's come before. Among all the other things he will ever be, Calvin has never been one of those kids." Oh, just sit down an dprepare for your heart to break, and then grow three sizes. Wonderful future fic for Calvin (and Suzie, and others); it feels Just Right.

The Lengthy Dimly Lit Coffee Break of the Psyche by dotfic
[Calvin & Hobbes]
Another wonderful future fic for Calvin, lost in the hell of being a grown-up and needing a job. Good thing he's still got his best friends...

The Roommate of +10 Confusion by Grevling
[Calvin & Hobbes/Foxtrot]
"There must be some scientifically sound way for Jason Fox to be able to quantify his new college roommate, but he hasn't found one yet that fits. Especially when he factors in the stuffed tiger." A really fascinating crossover, very nicely pulled off. Yuletide 2010

Spaceman Spiff and the Alien Conspiracy by Froggimus_Rex
[Calvin & Hobbes]
Calvin + Green Lantern Ring = hilarity ensues. My only regret is that this is too short. KikiRec

The Fable of Joyful Wing by shiplizard
[The Dresden Files]
This is so brilliant I can't even stand it. A completely wonderful AU, transposing the Dresden universe (with elements from both books and TV) to a magical China-That-Never-Was (a la Barry Hughart and Bridge of Birds. BTW, if you haven't read Master Li and Number 10 Ox, you're missing a huge treat). The story itself is lovely; the way familiar faces and histories are wrapped into the new setting and universe is just gorgeous. KikiRec

The Accordian Makes All the Difference by Mousapelli
[Dresden Files]
Murphy gives Harry an unexpected present, but Harry suspects that Thomas is really behind it. Murphy/Harry, awesomely so.

Chase Scene by Sholio
[The Dresden Files]
"Harry's on the run with amnesia in a Chicago blizzard. Murphy's on his trail, but unfortunately he doesn't remember enough to know that she isn't the enemy." Not Sholio's usual fandom, but major butt is still kicked. Suspenseful and awesome. KikiRec

Familiarity by Marien
[Dresden Files]
Awww! Mister teaches puppy Mouse how to hunt (with a little help). So adorable!

Good Timing by awanderingbard
[Dresden Files]
"Most dangerous job in the world? Alaskan crab fisherman have nothing on members of Harry Dresden's army." Great dialogue and a battle that equals almost anything in the books.

Rough Diamond by Lyrstzha
[Fairy Tales]
I don't think this actually counts as fanfic, but it's a lovely twist on Beauty and the Beast, and I'm a well-known sucker for those.

Making It by Emeraldwoman
[Faking It]
Nadine figures out what she wants. Simon helps (not like THAT!). Until Jenny Crusie gets around to writing Nadine's story, this is my canon.

Festival Day by Lys
[The Fall of Ile-Rien]
Tremaine's first festival in Cineth, and she's going to bake the bread. Ilias finds this much funnier than he should, really.

A Light in the Darkness by opalmatrix
[The Fall of Ile Rien]
Nicholas visits Cineth as rumors of sorcery spread near Ilias.

When the Sea Is by marycrawford
[Fall of Ile-Rien]
A few months after Tremaine's return, Giliead is called out to fight another wizard... Solid plot and great character voices.

How Rue Became the Mockingjay by aimmyarrowshigh
[Hunger Games]
"She's teamed up with the little girl instead of the boy who loves her. Katniss Everdeen and the girl from Eleven are ruining their best-laid plans. So, 'Caesar,' they say, 'Announce the change.'" Very sad, but a very interesting au.

Spectator by FanficAllergy
[Hunger Games]
"Prim volunteers to take a pregnant Katniss' place in the Seventy Fourth Hunger Games. Peeta vows to make sure Prim comes home alive. Now all Katniss can do is watch and hope that the boy with the bread will keep his word and her sister makes it home. That is until the Capitol finds a way to mess everything up." Katniss's outside POV on the Games gives the AU story a new and cool twist.

A Vote for Survival by Mara
After the events of "I Dare," Miri's got something to say to Val Con. And boy, will he be surprised.

Fair Stood the Wind by Maisedoat
[Price & Prejudice]
AU of the book: What if Darcy was born a second son and sent to sea? The characterization is quite good; the plot is a touch predictable to anyone who's read a sufficient number of romances, but no less enjoyable for that.

Miss de Bourgh in Bath by Pell
[Pride & Prejudice]
SwordSwallower's take on Anne de Bourgh is a wonderful character, flawed but sympathetic. Add in excellent writing, wonderful OCs, and a lovely Austen-esque plot, and you've got a winner! Kikirec

The Prudent Motive by Malini
[Pride & Prejudice]
A fascinating AU: Elizabeth accepts Darcy after The Most Insulting Proposal in History, then has to live with her decision. Written nearly to Austen's standards, with lovely twists and a wonderful dose of romance.

Goes Marching by whetherwoman
[To Kill a Mockingbird]
"In 1965, the issues that affected Scout's childhood are now affecting her children." Truly wonderful future fic.

In Which Eeyore Observes the Passing of the Seasons by Pouncer
[Winnie the Pooh]
Winnie the Pooh fic. Yeah. I know. But I've always had a soft spot for Eeyore, and this is a quiet, sweet, poetic fic that takes you back to childhood, then releases you gently to reality.
