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!

Yin's x-over fics
So, for some reason my brain went "hey, didn't you read that fandom made up of one author that one time and declare it cracktastically epic?" I haven't read these fics in, y'know, a couple years (bookmarks lost in one or another computer crash) but they are awesome.

The basic premise is "what failed series/bad sci-fi movies have Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett been in?"

The first series is Sherman's March (Flan the Ad Exec!), crossed over with SGA, and later Slings and Arrows (Paul Gross! Shakespeare! *faints*).

Title: The Accident!verse series (http://yin-again.com/xoindex.htm)
Author: Yin_again (yin-again.com)
Fandom: Sherman's March/SGA/Slings and Arrows xover
Pairing: Pete/Rodney, McKay/Sheppard, Pete/Geoffrey

Told from the view of Pete Sherman, it is the story of Pete and Rodney, two exiles in Carolina. Takes place after Rodney gets back from Siberia, but before he joins the Atlantis expedition. Continues on with the further adventures of Pete after Rodney takes the Atlantis job, ending in his eventual move up to Ontario in the second series in the 'verse, No Such Thing as a Planned Happenstance, and meeting Geoffrey Tennant aka Paul Gross the Insane Shakespearean Actor.
I love Yin's fics because they work, they really do, and while they may have some angst in the middle there is always a happy ending. She makes crackfic not crack.

The second series is First Monday (Flan the Law Nerd!), SGA, and Boa vs. Python (feat. sweaty!Hewlett).

Title: The Snakes and Lawyers 'Verse
Author: Yin_again
Fandom: First Monday/SGA/Boa vs. Python xover
Pairing: Lodge/McKay, McKay/Sheppard, Lodge/McKay/Sheppard, Lodge/Emmett, Lodge/Emmett/McKay

This one has yet another Sheppard look-alike, law clerk Julian Lodge. He comes to Atlantis to prepare for the arrival of his boss, the Supreme Justice, who is being debriefed on Atlantis. He has a fling with McKay, which opens Sheppard's eyes, which leads McKay to make an interesting suggestion (see above pairings list). Afterwards Julian meets Dr. Emmett (McKay look-alike) back on Earth, and isn't scared off by his massive snake Betty. :D
