Title: In Defiance of Reason
Author: metisket
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Rating: G
Warnings: Ed's not quite right in the head, so some of what he says or does might come across as disturbing? Don't think it warrants tagging though, nobody's dying painfully in technicolor graphic detail.

Summary: “Yeah, yeah, I know. You’re doin’ your best. It’s just your best isn’t quite good enough, Colonel. So while you’re doing whatever the hell it is you do, I’ll be here cleaning up after you.”
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: Or, That Fic Where Metisket Killed Al And Made Ed Crazy. How fun.

So, metisket! Very awesome. May be better known for being the author of the Teen Wolf fic(s) play it again. Has this ability to put angst and humor and character analysis in a blender and have a masterpiece come out. The kind that takes your heart without you noticing and plays it like a xylophone or something except you have already been eaten by the fic and are past caring.

Additional note: this fic is part of a series.

(Though, yeah, metisket's strengths lie more in characterization and gut-bustingly funny writing than plot)

Summary: What if the YJ team were the child soldiers/covert team of a Crime Syndicate/Justice Lords fusion.
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: Focuses on Superboy after he's... rescued... from Cadmus, and inducted into the Team.

<3 the characterization. Their reasons- which I won't spoil- for being "evil" are quite fitting.

There's also a(n incomplete) sequel and sidestories/backstories at the anon meme.

Summary: Xanxus is the most ungrateful bastard alive.
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: In which Xanxus is lovesick and oblivious, Tsuna is secretly scary under that fluffy exterior (or is perhaps scary because of that fluffy exterior), and Squalo is fed up with everything and matchmakes. Hilarity ensues.

(what is this first khr fic I rec and it's X27 but it's so funny so)

Summary: Sometimes, her grandmother has said, in the simplest, strongest of magics that’s all that’s required – a sacrifice and an intent. Her blood, and his words: I want to forget.

In which Joanna Watson is a witch, Sherlock Holmes is himself, and every spell has its price.
Excerpt )

Reccer's Notes: The magic aspect is fit so well into the story.

Summary: Newternia's streets are merciless, especially if you happen to be a hard-boiled human detective on your first case with a crazy Legislacerator.
Oh, your city lies in dust my friend. Your city lies in dust.
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: This is one of the more well-known fics, but it is just so damn good that it needs to be rec'd everywhere and anywhere possible. The characterization is stunning, especially the Dave-voice it is told in.
