TV fic recs

Still working on cleaning out my recs backlog. Here we have recs for TV fic!


Jeeves and the Inferior Valet, or, Thomas and the Kindest Man in England
, by [archiveofourown.org profile] Alex51324 - Jeeves & Wooster/Downton Abbey crossover
Thomas Barrow + Jeeves/Wooster, 13k. Recced to the moon and back already, but I shall rec it again, because it is delightful. Wooster rescues Thomas from an unfortunate situation, but of course it's up to Jeeves to actually bring things to rights, which he does, despite how Thomas's utter ineptitude as a valet pains him. The voices are perfect throughout. I laughed out loud multiple times. Highly recommended.

What Is Dark Within Me, Illuminate by [archiveofourown.org profile] sprocket - Babylon 5
Timov, 2.6k. I've read almost no B5 fic on account of avoiding spoilers, but someone told me that Timov never returned to the show, so I felt comfortable reading this one. It's set mid-episode and gives us Timov's own perspective and state of mind, and I was immediately fascinated by Timov in the episode, so I enjoyed this a lot.

Keep the Bouquets, Throw Away the Grooms by [archiveofourown.org profile] Netgirl_y2k - Game of Thrones
Margaery/Sansa, 2.8k. You guys, it's Margaery/Sansa arranged marriage fic. It is made of sunshine and light and knowingly raised eyebrows. I would read another 40k of it if I could.

Queen in the North by [archiveofourown.org profile] brutti_ma_buoni - Game of Thrones
Sansa/Brienne, 1.6k. The world is burning, Sansa and Brienne are fleeing north, and they find some unexpected solace in each other. Bittersweet and exactly the right length.

Go Wash Your Heart in the River by [archiveofourown.org profile] mardia - Sleepy Hollow
Jenny + Abbie + Crane gen, 13k. A casefic aside in which a woman is murdered and the trio is haunted by crows. This has everything I loved about Sleepy Hollow when I tried to watch it - Crane vs the 20th century, Abbie and Crane's weird but willing relationship, Abbie and Jenny's damaged sibling relationship still in the process of mending, and a gray New England moodiness - and only glancing reference to the stuff I didn't, like the apocalypse plot. Basically if the show were this, I would watch it every week, and as it isn't, I would gladly read tons more fic in this vein. (Recs welcome.) Everyone here feels like a fully-realized person on their own right, with all the complexity that implies, and the Jenny-Abbie part of it in particular gets some lovely nuanced development. Just wonderful.

Right? I don't read much fic for that fandom in hopes of avoiding spoilers, but those both made me so happy! Although in very different ways. :)

I don't watch the show but I've read the books so I'm not spoilerable at the moment. There were some good GoT fics in the remix challenge on Ao3 this year. I'll try to find some links when I get on my laptop. I don't know where the show is though....

Hah, well, I'm also two years behind Game of Thones, which is my main problem. :D

I just read the Jeeves/Downton one, it was lovely. Now I am embarking on the Sleepy Hollow one. (For some reason I just can't bring myself to go near Game of Thrones in any form.)

Yeah, the Jeeves/Downton one was just so much fun. I marvel at anyone who can capture that Wodehouse voice so well. FULL-ON LABIAL PRESS. :D
