Summary: Daemon Spade knew he would get bored of small inside works in the Vongola. It had taken two hundred years, but it finally happened. Now, though, inside work through a carefully groomed heir sounds way more interesting than anything he has ever done before. It must mean something that there are two Sawada brothers, right?

Sawada Tsunayoshi was ten when he realized the story wasn't about him. He was just a supporting character, even if he was the one with the cursed pacifier stone thing, the one who saw all the ghosts and the one with the tutor from hell. Well, maybe he is the damsel-in-distress. Or, the antagonist. Yeah, maybe he is the antagonist, that sounds good to him.

Reborn arrived (peaceful, normal) Namimori to train Sawada Hidetada to be the next Vongola boss, with the orders that no word about the Mafia must reach the younger brother. Hidetada, meanwhile, just wants to live a law-abiding life in his definitely not-Mafia-infested town.

Also known as: the fic where everyone is extremely fucked up and Kawahira is everywhere and ruins everyone's lives. Also, Hellhole Island Namimori feeds on the blood and tears of her citizens.
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: You see that Arcobaleno!Tsuna tag? Do not expect fluffy/smutty Arcobaleno + Tsuna interactions. Or Sky Arcobaleno = coughing up blood angst. Nope, not here.

A summary of major changes to the canon storyline: a)Tsuna has an older brother, Hidetada, who's the future Vongola Decimo etc. etc. b) There is a lot of kooky shit. Namimori is extremely fucked up. In a way which is explained by in-universe flame mechanics, which. Bonus worldbuilding! c) Tsuna being Arcobaleno, though nothing exciting has happened as a direct result (yet). d) Daemon Spade.

(what do I even tag this as. Weird AU? Creepy AU? Lovecraftian elements? *throws up hands* Let's just go with dark AU.)

Title: The Game of Champions
Author: L. Lamora
Fandom: Pokemon
Rating: M
Story Links: FFnet
Author Links: FFnet
Summary: There are many trainers in the world; they exist in degrees, from dabbler to legend. But only one can be the very best - one man, one Champion. I am that one. I am that man. My name? Red.
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: Red's journey, as told by Red. This fic is brilliant. The worldbuilding, the characters, the writing, everything.The author meshes the different games plus the anime together to create a world with an astonishing amount of detail, and Blue and Red's rivalry is something to behold. Much thought was put into this.

Title: The Crown of Mètis
Author: Megii of Mysteri OusStranger
Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: T
Story Links: FFnet | dA
Author Links: FFnet | dA
Summary: 1957. A tree in Albania, she said. Straightforward enough, right? Not if someone else got there first. Tom's journey in acquiring the vessel for his fifth Horcrux just got that much trickier. An exploration of White Magic. Canon-compliant.
Excerpt )

Reccer's Notes: Less about Voldemort finding Ravenclaw's Diadem, though there is that, and more about Light and Dark magic, the similarities and differences between the two.

Rating: T

Summary:Bargaining with the Beasts beyond the reaches of furthest space for the opportunity of a new life, this time without the albatross of Sburb hanging over their heads, does indeed grant Rose Lalonde and her friends freedom from the game—at the price of their humanity. The new universe forged by the Noble Circle is a vivid, indistinguishable replica of the Alternia thought destroyed by all involved. With an oppressive caste system and the grim reality of new lives as trolls, and all that implies, Rose and her fifteen comrades resolve to instigate revolution and overthrow the oppressive regime of Her Imperious Condescension. But they number only sixteen, having barely scraped the surface of adulthood, and they are not the gods they once thought they were, and the Empress is an ancient thing—almost more institution than living, breathing being—with the power of an uncountable horde of trolls under her grasp.

Rose figures that makes them about even.

Title: Tis Femina
Author: Sythe
Fandom: Naruto
Rating: M
Story Links: FFnet
Author Links: FFnet
Summary: Naruto had gone to his last battle with Madara fully prepared to die with his enemy. He did not think he'd be manipulated by old toad sages and thrown to the far past. He did not expect to wake up in the Senju clan compound either.
Excerpt )
Reccer's Notes: I like how Sythe handles the genderbending: there's a valid plot reason for it, there are psychological effects, there are troubles with the body. And the worldbuilding- this is set during the time of the warring clans, of which there isn't much canon info. Sythe does a great job of filling in the gaps (and adding more).
