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)

Rating: T

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: In which Stiles is female and writes a lot of lists and the author a) has no idea what she's doing and b) can't seem to stop writing fandom love letters.
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: In short, a fic about how messed up everyone is. But that hardly does it justice. (Go read it plus the rest of the series, because pprfaith's work is just so jaw-droppingly amazing. Because characterization and and the list thing and just asdkjfl.)

Summary:Rangers who have lost half of themselves do not return to the drift. It is madness to try. But it was madness that made the Jaegers in the first place, madness to think that the world might be overrun by monsters out of drive-in movies, and therefore Kenshin does not think that a little more madness will do much harm. Pentecost agrees.

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