15th-Oct-2013 08:52 am The Sentinel/Calvin and Hobbes (G)
Title: Through the I.U.I. by Starwatcher
Characters: Blair Sandburg, Jim Ellison, Hobbes
Length: 6100 words
Author on LJ: on Dreamwidth (see website)
Author Website: at Dreamwidth and at AO3

Why this must be read: This is a cute epilogue/sequel/missing scene for a Calvin & Hobbes story written by Dolimir, which can be found here. In Dolimir’s story, Calvin and Hobbes, as they grow up, theorize that they can interact with each other (but no one else can) because they exist in separate planes of existence, but occupy the same space. They decide to become brilliant scientists when they grow up in order to figure out how to join the two existences. Starwatcher’s story starts with Hobbes successfully appearing in our universe and, purely by chance wouldn’t you know, ending up on Rainier’s campus.

Starwatcher writes mostly lovely slice-of-life stories that cover interesting subjects. And what could be more interesting (or more improbable), than Blair and Jim meeting the so-called imaginary friend of a little boy? I certainly would not have though this crossover possible, but she makes it work. I like that it takes the talents of both Jim and Blair to fix the situation. Enjoy.

15th-May-2012 12:02 pm Incurable Weirdness (Lions and Tigers), by Starlingthefool, PG-13 - R
Fandom: INCEPTION / Calvin & Hobbes
Title: Lions and Tigers; The Physiological Response to Absurdity (The Incurable Weirdness Series)
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Length: about 14k in total

Author Website: Author's works at AO3; masterlist of (earlier) fics on author's journal
Why this must be read: Of all the amazing fics [livejournal.com profile] starlingthefool has written in this fandom, this one (along with the tattoo parlor AU) sits at the top of my list. In this fic, as in all the best crossovers, Starling manages to take a completely unexpected premise and run with it until it fits so naturally into the universe, it seems like a foregone conclusion all along. Starling makes Calvin Eames so plausible and real and heartbreaking, without trading in one iota of characterization from either canon, that the idea of Eames having grown up in Ohio with a giant stuffed tiger for a best friend seems totally canonical. The results are fascinating and charming and--in keeping with all the best Calvin & Hobbes fics--more than a little poignant, heartbreaking, and profound. Arthur having hesitant conversations with Hobbes will melt you into puddles of feelings, and the sequel from Eames' POV might actually find you weeping joyfully into your hankies, as Hobbes helps him reconcile with his past and deal with the terrifying process of falling in love.


a tiger; massive, lithe, striped orange and black in great big fuck-off stripes, paw frozen in the act of stepping towards him, green eyes fixed on Arthur's. )

30th-Oct-2011 10:08 pm The Cable & Deadpool Yuletide Special by David Hines (Mature)
Fandom: FANDOM... ok, well, mostly MARVEL COMICS (specifically, Cable & Deadpool), but also FANDOM (also, this is kinda a crossover, but also really not, so I"m not really cheating)
Pairing: none
Length: 10,407 words

Why this must be read:
Raise your hand if you love Yuletide! It's been a fanfic tradtion for, what, a decade now? Well, this story was written in 2009 for Yuletide and it's about a story being written in 2009 for Yuletide... yeah. Deadpool is in it. Thus, the 4th Wall is not only broken, but OBLITERATED and then scattered beyond the fringes of the nastiest corners of the internet.

Deadpool and Cable make their way through the Yuletide archive, visiting a (rather infamous) story from each year in search of a perfect Christmas. It is not only meta, it's nostalgic meta and the end is very touching. This is on my HIGHLY recommended list for anyone, even people who are not really fans of Cable and Deadpool.

15th-Apr-2011 06:53 pm Upholding the Laws of Time by Astrogirl (G)
Fandom: DOCTOR WHO/CALVIN AND HOBBES
Pairing: Ten, Donna, Calvin
Length: 181
Author's Website: AO3

Why this must be read:

In this fic the Doctor meets another famous time traveller and sabotages his time machine. What a horrible thing to do! Of course when the other time traveller is Calvin it's the only thing to do. Can you imagine him lose in the time stream? :D

"You built this yourself?" said the Doctor, tilting his head this way and that as he inspected the cardboard box. "Very impressive work. Adapted from a basic Transmogrifier design, am I right? 'Course I am. Brilliant!" He clapped the smugly beaming kid on the shoulder, then patted the box on one of its flaps. "Well, have fun!"
