RR -- Small Fandoms

Even though we already have a couple of small fandom RR posts, they're several months old and I'm hoping a fresh one will spark new recs.   Remember, any fandom (no matter how large it is in the world at large) is counted as small at ER if there are fewer than five recs posted for that fandom in this comm.  This means, for example, Star Wars, individual Star Trek franchises, The X-Files, and Supernatural all count as small fandoms while Jeeves & Wooster and Sports Night do not.  Check out our tags page or our delicious account to see which fandoms are eligible.  (When in doubt, feel free to rec -- we won't complain.)

Personally, I'm really looking forward to a bunch of reasons why Star Wars and Star Trek TOS should be getting more recs.  And if anyone has some 'Sam and Dean really aren't brothers and thus them getting together isn't really incest at all' recs, I will love you forever:)

Things to keep in mind:
-Recced stories can be any length, any fandom, and any pairing, as long as they fit the theme
-You don't need to write a review (unless you want to). All that you need to include are title, author, and link to the story (all parts if there are more than one).

That said, have at it!

All the King's Horses by probeda.
Gen/het, epic-length, PG-13ish, hurt/comfort

Diego de la Vega (who is also Zorro, for those following along at home) is left in charge of his father's ranch just as bandit activity in the pueblo is getting out of control. A "superhero gets captured in his civilian persona" story that makes nice use of Diego's father issues.

Sherlock Holmes:

You Buy Bones by aragonite.
Gen, long, R-ish, with a very high creep factor (like, cutting up dead people and keeping them in your basement serial-killer kind of creepy).

At Dr. Watson's request, Inspector Lestrade & Scotland Yard find themselves investigating one of the more disturbing facets of the 19th century medical profession: resurrection men. Think black market organ harvesting, except more disgusting.

aragonite's one of my favorite Sherlock Holmes authors; she does a beautiful job with the Victorian time period, writes a wonderfully fleshed-out Lestrade and Scotland Yard contingent, and her Holmes and Watson, while not textually slashed, are definately of the platonic soulbondedness school of not-quite-slash-but-they-read-like-it-anyway.

Ooo, Zorro! Urm, how central to the story is the relationship? (Gen/het confuses me:)

Jan. 20th, 2009 03:50 am (UTC)
The relationship barely shows up at all for the first half-to-two-thirds, and then becomes reasonably central (hence gen/het - it starts out gen but becomes het partway through).

That sounds perfect to me! Thanks:)

Ooops! But I just noticed that the link for the story actually leads to this comm. Help?
Jan. 20th, 2009 03:54 am (UTC)
Um, damn. I don't know how I did that. Here's the real link:

Thank you!

Link to Zorro fic is wrong. Here's the real link:

All the King's Horses.

"All The Kings Horses" is a wonderful Zorro story; it's great to see it recced!

It's one of my favorites - so much angsty h/c goodness.
