Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Lyric (lyricality on LJ): "Abracadabra" (Charlie/Wonka. "Eight years after that fateful day in February, Charlie has finally learned how to want." Elements of both the Wilder and the Depp films. Charlie, here, is of age. An insightful first time story.

Harry Potter

corianderpie (corianderpie on LJ): "Caramel" - requires simple site registration (Snape/Hermione. " Is there such a thing as a harmless crush? Over the course of a year, two people experience the perils of wanting what they just can’t have." Spoiler/Content/Warning(skip)Much sex - both of the fantasy and reality varieties - and Hermione is under 18 and a student in this story. Not a particularly happy romantic ending, for a variety of reasons. Part romance and part heartbreak. Check the warnings if you must.)

Dolores Crane: "In Loco Parentis" (Hermione-centric, Hermione/Harry, Snape/Harry, Hestia/Tonks, Others. "Hermione is back at school after a summer in the Muggle world, and everything is changing. But getting closer to Harry doesn't get her any closer to the war - until she's unexpectedly enrolled in the Order of the Phoenix, and meets Hestia Jones, the founder of Mud Pride." Utterly fantastic Hermione pov, and an excellent looooong story about love and family and politics and all the prejudices, large and small, that inhabit our world(s). Spoiler/Content/Warning(skip)Underage sex, and an abortion. Cross-recced in het and slash)

Nahimana (emerald_dragon8 on LJ): "The Visitor" (Snape/Harry, Harry/Ginny. "When Potter visits, it is never for long." Spoiler/Content/Warning(skip)Character death. Portrait fic. A sometimes sweet, sometimes sad story about so many things that "might have been.")

sarkysue (sarkysue on LJ): "Revealed, Gently" (Snape/Harry. "Snape isn’t dead, he’s back at Hogwarts and in need of an assistant. Coincidently, Harry is hanging around Hogwarts, reluctant to move on with his life. Cue sniping and snarking, tears and laughter and, possibly, love." "Revealed, Gently" is a lovely "Return to Hogwarts" story, with a relationship that develops in a relatively believable manner. Note: the link takes you to the last chapter, so click on the "Chapter One" link to read.)

Highlander

Sylvia Volk (sylviavolk2000 on LJ): "The Good Student" (Duncan, Methos, OCs. Gen. "They say [...] that for every teacher, there is one perfect student." A dozen years old, as of this recommendation, but not dated in any way. The voices ring true, and the flashbacks work as well as they did in the very best episodes of the series. More stories by this author can be found here)

Sherlock

AJ Hall (legionseagle on dreamwidth): "Breakfast at 221B" (Sherlock-BBC. Sherlock/John. ""Anyway. Enough of my embarrassing sibling brothel stories. Tell me yours." (A Sherlock conversation, over breakfast.)" An insightful look at an asexual Sherlock. The story within the story is rather quietly sad, but the future seems very bright.)

Basingstoke (basingstoke on LJ/DW): "Intemperance" (2009 version. Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Mary Watson, Irene Adler. Spoiler(skip)Sherlock Holmes, in this story, is Transgendered and Pregnant. "Intemperance," a story from the secret journals of Doctor John H. Watson, intimate friend and long-time companion of the infamous Sherlock Holmes: A most curious and instructive report of the great man's improbable fecundation, gestation, and parturition." A wonderful story, as domestic as any perfectly in-character Holmes story allows with as much patience for an unexpected yet inevitable child as one might imagine Holmes ever having.)

Candle Beck (candle_beck): "Space Travel" (Sherlock-BBC. Sherlock/John. "The night the aliens came was the first time John understood the extent of his predicament. " Wonderfully written. It's hard to imagine two more perfectly/bizarrely suited people.)

cj_ludd18 (paisley_pie on LJ): "Sonata Form" (Sherlock-BBC. Mycroft-centric gen. "Mycroft Holmes has always revolved his life around that of his little brother, whether he wishes to do so or not." Mycroft, who's wonderful and almost sympathetic, and Sherlock's relationship - difficult and tense and yet strangely more honest than [almost] any other either is likely to have - is perfect here. An excellent look at at a pair of quite uncommon siblings)

Miss Pamela (misspamela on LJ): "that thing you like" (BBC version. Sherlock/John. "Happy Christmas, etc. etc" John is invited to spend the holidays with the Holmes family, and...yes, this is definitely Sherlock's family. A first time, long after everybody thinks a first time took place.)

Sam Vimes/copperbadge (sam_storyteller on DW): "Paper Chase" (Sherlock-BBC. Crossover with White Collar. Peter, Neal, Elizabeth, Sherlock, John, others. "One criminal consultant. One consulting detective. One serial killer. And one perhaps inadvisable bet..." Once you handwave away the set-up that brings Sherlock and John to New York, what you're left with is a wonderfully clever tale that seamlessly blends both 'verses. Great fun.)

wordstrings (wordstrings on LJ): "The Death and Resurrection of the English Language" (Sherlock/John. This story is about as close as one can come to being lodged somewhere inside Sherlock's head, and lucky, lucky Sherlock that he has John to not be utterly terrified of the prospect.

White Collar

Hilangel (writing journal: canape_rouge on LJ): "Occam’s Razor" (Peter/Elizabeth, Peter/Neal. "Peter has never been able to say no to Neal; but saying yes is much more difficult" Good pacing and very in character, Peter in particular.)

Sam Vimes/copperbadge (sam_storyteller on DW): "Paper Chase" (Crossover with Sherlock-BBC. Peter, Neal, Elizabeth, Sherlock, John, others. "One criminal consultant. One consulting detective. One serial killer. And one perhaps inadvisable bet..." Once you handwave away the set-up that brings Sherlock and John to New York, what you're left with is a wonderfully clever tale that seamlessly blends both 'verses. Great fun.)

When most of us think of a candidiasis, we think it is rengidrag the ladies. On the other hand, the Candidiasis fungus (yeast) could cause infections in anyone of frequently girl or boy, because it is seen in each of our our bodies. This can are available as a possible unwelcome shock to men, but hold on tight, because it gets worse. Fellas, when you have sex using a lady who's got yeast infection, she'll very easily give it to you.
