ELEM/BtVS/Angel: i think you need a shotgun blast

Fandom: Elementary (/Buffy/Angel)
Title: i think you need a shotgun blast
Author: postcardmystery
Pairing: none
Rating: R
Length: 2.969 words.
Spoilers: general ones for Elementary & Buffy, and some details from the end of Angel.
Summary: “She is not the Slayer and he is not the Slayer’s Watcher, but their roles are almost as old as human civilisation and they fall into them without even truly having to try. She kills twenty or thirty vamps a night, and he stands at her shoulder, twisting cheesewire between his fingers that he’s cursed with a spell five centuries old, a stake in his belt and blood between his teeth.

Joan Watson is a Slayer, and Sherlock Holmes is her Watcher.”

Comments: dark, original and very well done.

LBD: get loved, make more

Fandom: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
Title: get loved, make more
Author: allthingsholy
Pairing: Gigi/Lydia (implied Jane/Bing, Lizzie/Darcy)
Rating: PG-13
Length: 9.749 words.
Spoilers: general ones for the whole show (at least up to ep.90)
Summary: Lydia’s tried to get better at putting words to the things she’s feeling, at dropping all the adorbs and actually saying stuff sometimes, but it’s so big, what Gigi’s telling her, and Lydia doesn’t want to screw it up with, “Sorry that your mom’s dead.” It would be different, maybe, if Gigi was just Darcy’s sister or just a friend of Lizzie’s, but she’s not, not exactly. She’s Lydia’s friend too now, like really, and so Lydia rearranges the carrots into nothing and tries to think of something to say.

Comments: This is so incredibly well done. It’s about Lydia getting better and Gigi as a someone that has gone through the same. It’s the kind of fic that makes you ship a pairing.

ELEM: Solve for X

Fandom: Elementary
Title: Solve for X
Author: Yahtzee
Pairing: Joan&Sherlock (and a tiny bit of UST)
Rating: PG-13
Length: 5.788 words.
Spoilers: very generic ones, before 1x16.
Summary: Their relationship as it stands has one mathematical certainty: It will end in twenty-five days. At that time, her sojourn as his sober companion will end. Either Watson will pass out of his life forever, or Holmes will have to devise another option.

Comments: brilliant Sherlock voice, and it captures perfectly their dynamic.
