18th-Aug-2007 01:40 am Lonesome Confectioner Seeks True Love by Vanillafluffy (PG-13)
Fandom: MISCELLANEOUS JOHNNY DEPP MOVIES (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
Pairing: not really
Author on LJ:[livejournal.com profile] vanillafluffy
Author Website: at fanfiction.net
Why this must be read: It's charming and funny. Mr. Wonka advertises for a potential wife.
Lonesome confectioner seeks true love
Agreeable, intelligent lady wanted for long-term relationship.
Must be willing to procreate.
Expenses paid for travel to first meeting.

He gets a number of candidates, the last of whom is named Mary Sue, yet you'll still be surprised how it turns out. I love Vanillafluffy's wordplay with things like:

In a trice - for there were three Oompa-loompas - Miss Kane was bound with a thick black rope of liquorice and lugged down to the waiting limo to be returned to whence she came.

18th-Aug-2007 12:58 am Abracadabra by Lyricality (NC-17)
Fandom: MISCELLANEOUS JOHNNY DEPP MOVIES (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
Pairing: Willy Wonka/Adult Charlie Bucket
Author on LJ:There is a [livejournal.com profile] lyricality, but I don't think it's her.
Author Website: at fanfiction.net
Why this must be read: Her username, lyricality, is a perfect description of her writing. Charlie's twenty, all his family are gone, and Wonka is all he wants. But when he tries to ask for what he wants, he fears he has lost any chance at it. It's beautiful, really.

Title: Death by Chocolate by Beth Einspanier
Pairing: none
Author on LJ:
Author Website: at fanfiction.net
Why this must be read: The author calls this the weirdest crossover she's ever written. I'm not sure "weird" is sufficient. It's also dark, funny, peculiar, whimsical, serious, brilliant, unique, magical . . . it's hard to know where to stop.

Ten years after the golden ticket tour, the CSI Las Vegas team investigates the murder of a young man found dead in the Nevada desert, a young man who was once the luckiest boy in the world. Yes, canon character death, right up front. That's the "dark" part. From there the story becomes the oddest—well, see all my adjectives above—crossover you'd ever care to read as the team members flounder around in the magical world of Willy Wonka and his chocolate. They have magic gobstoppers in the lab, and oompa-loompas who give their police statements in song. It's just . . . fantastic.

Why this must be read: Because you know Jane. You'd be Jane. If you worked for a genius candy maker who looked like Johnny Depp, you'd worship from afar, wouldn't you? This is short and humorous, and rings very true.

Mr. Wonka – it seems absurd to call him that. Then again, my thoughts aren’t exactly clear when it comes to him anyway. So I suppose it’s for the best.

Where was I…?

Oh yes, the fulfilling aspects of my job.

If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m the woman behind the wrappers. The lady behind the labels. The scribbler behind the scrumdidlyumptiousness.

Oh, that word gave me trouble….

Fandom: MISCELLANEOUS JOHNNY DEPP MOVIES (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
Pairing: none
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: at fanfiction.net
Why this must be read: It's a charming bit of inanity, exquisitely told in the same silly tone as the movie. Willy likes to travel, though he doesn't like to deal with people. Still, he manages a quest for the source of the dimly-remembered softness of his mother's sweater.

Fandom: MISCELLANEOUS JOHNNY DEPP MOVIES (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
Pairing: Wonka/Charlie

Why this must be read: Wowowowow! This was just posted today. SUCH a good read! It's Charlie's 16th birthday, and Wonka wants to know why he's been so unhappy. In a series of flashbacks we learn about Charlie's life at school after winning the contest, and about Wonka's childhood and unlucky attempts at love. Wonderful piece.

"He smiled. “I know I’m a little...I’m not like other people. But I’ve tried to do the right thing by you—to be your friend and your teacher and your mentor. But now that you’re sixteen, I think things need to change.”
...

“You said my Chocolate Room was beautiful. You understood that there’s not supposed to be any point to candy. And I knew I’d picked the right one.”

8th-Aug-2007 10:35 pm True Love is as Sweet as Really Sweet Chocolate by Teriyakikat (PG)
Fandom: MISCELLANEOUS JOHNNY DEPP MOVIES (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
Pairing: Willy Wonka/OFC
Author on LJ: not that I can find
Author Website: at fanfiction.net
Why this must be read: This story is for everyone who ever wanted to take Johnny Depp home for herself. *g* A lovely parody of Mary Sues. And, really, you could like a Mary Sue that was a parody, couldn't you? The author starts the story with, "Author's Notes: Do you trust me?"
