Reveals went up precisely at midnight, allowing me to compulsively stalk the writers of several fics I enjoyed. The passing of anonymity also means that I can mention that my own story this year was a Back To The Future story titled Alternates, written for [livejournal.com profile] drworm. It's about Marty and his father, primarily, and how the former comes to terms with the strange new version of the latter he's accidentally created. I'll crosspost it to [livejournal.com profile] wildgoosery soon (I'm not allowing myself to post any fic there until I've finished with the BSSAU) but you can read it over at AO3 in the meantime if you're curious!

I also have some recs! This isn't as complete a list as I'd like, but I'm still clambering my way through the archives as of yet.

No Reservations: Narnia, by Edonohana (Anthony Bourdain: No Reservation/Chronicles of Narnia)
I’m crammed into a burrow so small that my knees are up around my ears and the boom mike keeps slamming into my head, inhaling the potent scent of toffee-apple brandy and trying to drink a talking mouse under the table.
This was utterly hilarious and charming, and I don't even care about Narnia.

The Spiral of Lives, by Damkianna (James Cameron's Avatar)
An AU of the movie, wherein the Avatar Program never existed.
I really hope she comes back to this, because it's a fantastic yuletide fic but it could be a killer novella length story.

"Weaker" Sex, by dropsofviolet (Oglaf)
Kronar's son was named Beth, and she knew from very early on that she was different. She wore the Bow of Honor, after all, and none of the other kids got to fight wolves until they were at least three.
Deeply silly. But then, so is the comic it's based on.

Sharktopus: In His Own Words, by airspaniel (Sharktopus)
I didn't ask for any of this.
Written from Sharktopus' point of view. Listening to [personal profile] hoshizora read this aloud was a highlight of my Christmas, let me tell you.

spiral out, keep going, by heinrichfrei (Moon)
GERTY's life, both cyclical and evolving.

The Lonely Traveler, by Becky (Mushishi)
After becoming snowbound in Adashino's village, Ginko realizes it's no natural storm keeping him there.
A funny, charming little story that fits very well in the Mushishi universe.

AND ALSO, some things friends of mine wrote!

Sincerely, Cindi. by [livejournal.com profile] sainfoin_fields (Metropolis: the Chase Suite/The ArchAndroid - Janelle Monae)
Being of sound mind and a silenced body, this is your messiah speaking.

No More Alphabet, by [livejournal.com profile] meredyd (PlanetES)
Sometimes she came up for breath and remembered with a slight shock that her feet were no longer planted firmly on the ground.

Ancient Artifacts and Modern Rituals, by [livejournal.com profile] jlh (Community)
From TV Tropes: "The Vacation Episode is a one-off episode where the characters leave their familiar grounds for a well-deserved rest. The vacation will invariably be set in a faraway and exotic location for maximum impact; given the higher costs of shooting on location, the episode will often be longer than usual, to make best use of the budget. A Special Guest or three might also be included."
or, the one where the gang go to New York City for spring break.


YEAR OF THE MK III SONICARE ULTRASONIC TOOTHBRUSH, by [livejournal.com profile] hoshizora (Infinite Jest)
Hal Incandenza struggles to find his way out of his own mind. More or less.

I am no doubt leaving out a ton of stuff, but that's a start anyway!
