Why this must be read: I missed crossover day! That made me so sad I can't even express it. So... I'm making up for it now and hope the mods forgive my lateness!

Blood of the Saints and it's sequel, Every Time I Look in the Mirror, are based on a concept that is done amazingly well. Blood of the Saints crosses over with Constatine, and Constantine's voice is pitch perfect and his opinion of the MacManus twins is sharp, biting and blunt. The plot is subtle, but very present, and the idea behind the plot is vastly engaging.

The sequel, Every Time I Look in the Mirror, takes place after a time jump of irrelevant length and crosses over the MacManus brothers with the Winchester brothers. The twincest is far more subtle and this story can be read without reading Blood of the Saints, as long as you read the author's notes. I was completely enthralled by this fic and knew I wanted to rec it as soon as the mods tapped me for the month!

Both fics are pitch perfect, but the sequel is really the fic I wanted to rec here. I hope you all enjoy them both!

This will be my last BDS rec and it's been a hell of a ride. :D

Why this must be read: The thing about the DCU is that while it is full of superheroes, not everyone wears spandex. Some people in it are a whole lot darker and creepier than anything anyone would expect. And occasionally, this darker side interacts with the lighter one.

John Constantine, hero of Hellblazer, is a trickster and a magician, the zeitgeist of London in the 80s. His title is darkdarkdark, and oddly visceral, and so's the character. Here's a little ficlet that works perfectly as a tiny appetizer for the shifty bastard that is Conjob, and that's why I love it.

On the fourth day...
