NCIS/Stargate SG-1 Crossover

Fandom: NCIS/Stargate SG-1 Crossover
Title: Stardust
Author: Kikkimax  (userinfokikkimax)
Genre: PreSlash, Angst, Crossover, Case File, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship
Pairing/Characters: Daniel/Tony, Gibbs, Kate, Abby, Ducky, O'Neill
Rating: R
Warnings: Talk of Torture
Spoilers: NCIS: Takes Place at the end of Season 1.
                Stargate SG-1: Takes place after Evolution, Part 2, Season Seven

Notes: Gibbs and his team are called in for an unusual murder case, and the only witness is the man the dead men had handcuffed to a chair at the time, surrounded by implements of torture.  The only problem?  An unfortunate case of amnesia: he can't remember a thing.  The team take him into protective custody as a material witness, while they try to help "John" (Doe) jog his memory.  The problem is,  the only flashes of memory he *does* have include watching a large, deadly firefight which includes a pyramid shaped "Spaceship." 

I'd never seen NCIS when I read this fic, and had absolutely no idea who they were.  By the time the fic was over (and it's a fairly long fic), I really wanted to know more about those guys.  That's when I started watching NCIS.  Yes, you have Kikkimax to blame for my current obsession with NCIS.  It's all her fault, okay?  Both casts are well drawn, perfectly believable and enjoyable characters, even if you don't get to see near as much of  SG-1 as you do NCIS.   Well, except for Daniel.  The plot is good and solid, the descriptions fascinating, and I can see why both the Stargate Fan Awards and the NCIS FanFic Awards voted this fic top Crossover. 

Excerpt: (Remember: "John Doe" is the name their amnesiac witness is going by.)

Gibbs threw out a hand to stop Tony )

I rate this fic: Damn Good Fic

Steven Brust's Dragaera Series

Fandom: Steven Brust's Dragaera Universe
Title: Witchcraft
Author: Truth  [info]dhaunea)
Genre: Book, PreSlash, Drama
Pairing: Vlad/Morrolan
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: The Jhereg Series, through Taltos

Notes: My favorite fantasy novels for the last decade or so have been by Steven Brust, and of this whole Universe he's created, by far my favorite novels have been the ones with Vlad Taltos as the lead character.  Vlad is a fascinating character...a "business man" whose "business" includes untaxed gambling houses and brothels, and the protection racket. 

He also happens to be an extremely deadly assassin, an excellent cook, a witch in a country full of sorcerers with an entirely different kind of power, and "human" in a world of Dragaerans - creatures that stand several feet taller than he does, and live thousands of years longer than he will.  Yet he stands out, makes a name for himself in a totally foreign land, and makes powerful allies and formidable enemies in deadly games of politics and power. 

My first interest in slashing this series was in bringing together Vlad and Morrolan (his friend, and one of the youngest and most powerful of the Dragonlords).  They have a lot in common, but at the same time, are totally, widely different in many, many ways.  I always thought they belonged together.  Way before I ever heard of slash.  But then I learned all about fandom, and eventually even found some people who also want to write in this fandom.  This fic makes me happy.  It was the first one I found, and I think Truth handles Vlad and his trusty Jhereg familiar Loiosh, very well.   Good fic.  Worth reading.


I remember being slightly shocked  )
