Summary: “Detective, when the Antichrist does make his grand entrance, which I assure you I’d have to know about well in advance, he won’t be killing people one by one,” Lucifer said dismissively.

Review: This is a crossover between the tv shows Lucifer and Damien. I've only watched Lucifer, but Astolat ' s characterization is so solid for the characters from that show, I'm sure her Damien voice is equally solid.

Despite the darkness of the two shows involved the fic is very sweet and heart warming. Mostly revolving around Damien and Lucifer shared need for someone that won't die out and leave them.

Fandom: The Flash (TV)
Pairing: Caitlin Snow/Iris West

Warnings: none

Summary:The first words that Caitlin Snow ever say to Iris are, “I need you to urinate in this.” (Or, au where Iris West is The Flash.)


Review:
I love these kinds of AUs where the girl ends up being in the male heroes shoes. This is one enticing story and one amazingly well written AU where Iris West ends up becoming the Flash instead of Barry. Essentially it's a retelling of season one but with the dazzling twists and turns that come with putting Iris into the role of protagonist and hero.

It's wonderful to see her figure out her powers, her life, the feelings she has for Barry, and fall in love with Caitlin.

Absolutely a recommended read.
