book fic recs

I continue to work on thinning out my recs tag on Pinboard, so have some more recs! The theme this time is book fandoms.

Carrefour by Merlin Missy - Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Anaesthesia + Ingress gen, 10k. Possibly my favorite fic I have ever read for this book. Because all of us needed the fic where Anaesthesia survives, rescues/is rescued by Door's missing sister, and saves the day, did we not?

Of Five Adventures That Occurred During The Reign Of The Raven Barista. by Lanna Michaels - Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Gen. 1.2k. Because we all needed a JS&MN magical coffee shop AU, too.

Shalbatana by [archiveofourown.org profile] ellen_fremedon - The Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson
Nadia, Hiroko, Ann. 8k. With Ann's guidance, Nadia and Hiroko set off across Mars to find the Sojourner rover, still wandering. I love this integration of the canon with RL Mars events that have happened since it was written, and I love seeing fic of this particular cast of characters, who never interacted much in canon. ellen_fremedon also does a great job of capturing the majesty and isolation of Mars, the way Robinson did.

The Spanish Castle by [archiveofourown.org profile] LookingForOctober - The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery
Valancy gen, 3.4k. Valancy visits a real life castle and finds a kindred spirit there. Just a sweet and lovely post-book moment.

The Witch [ART] by [archiveofourown.org profile] sassynails - The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkein
I'm not familiar with this character, but it doesn't matter, because this multimedia piece is just stunning.

Thank you for the recs! Very neat Tolkien art, and I had a blast reading the JSMN coffee shop AU, too.
