Another one (well, two, but they go together) by Gekizetsu. What happens when you take Harry Lockhart and Perry van Shrike and throw them into a world of demonic singers and evil, serial-killing brains? Pure, glorious crack. You don't even have to watch SPN to fall in love with these fics (I've seen maybe a full episode of the show), but I've been told by someone who does watch it that it's rec-worthy just on the Winchester's characterisations alone.

Seriously. Harry Lockhart fighting an evil, serial-killing brain. Do I really need to say any more?

I got into this fandom for the casefics, and this is a great one. While it doesn't follow the usual formula of two cases being the same case, I still quite like this one. Cassyl's Harry-voice is great and the fic shows Harry as having some sort of use beyond just an unreliable narrator for the story. There are a few bits of this fic that have even led to my own headcanon, because they're just that good.

Beyond this, there's not much else I can say without giving the game away with the fic. It's a fun ride. Go read it.

Fandom: KISS KISS BANG BANG
Pairing: Harry/Harmony

Why this must be read:

The thing I love most about this fandom are the casefics, and the thing I love most about the casefics in this fandom is the amount meta and in-jokes you get with them. It's a movie about LA and Hollywood, so it's only expected that a lot of the casefics you'll find have to do with celebrities. This one does sort of blur the lines into RPF, what with the inclusion of said celebrities, but that's not why you should read it. Why you should read it is definitely Harry going out on a case without Perry. That, and Harmony going all A-Rod on a stalking suspect.

Why this must be read:

I'm a total sucker for pairings that don't work. Harry and Harmony don't work. And they probably never could. Things Perry Knows goes into why Harry and Harmony don't work, and has the added bonus of being a rare Perry-POV fic. Well, it's Perry-POV in third person, but close enough. But regardless, Perry knows things. He knows how messed up Harmony is, he knows how much of a hopeless idealist Harry is, and he knows he wants to knock both their heads together.

It also draws a great comparison between Harry and a kicked puppy, which could not possibly be any more accurate.

4th-Dec-2011 08:55 am 50 things Perry Van Shrike never wants to hear from Harry Lockhart, ever by Gekizetsu (PG?)

I don't usually like reccing ultra-short fics, but I do make exceptions if the fic is awesome. This fic is awesome. There's really not a whole lot I can say about this one that the title doesn't already say. Basically, it's fifty worst-case scenarios that are all designed to make Perry's life a living hell. And they're all called Harry Lockhart.

1st-Dec-2011 07:36 pm The Breadwinner by tayberhecate (PG-13)
Fandom: KISS KISS BANG BANG
Pairing: Harry/Perry (if you turn your head to one side and squint)
Length: 3000
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] tayberhecate
Author Website: Author's fanfic tag
Why this must be read:

This is one I quite like because it touches on so many little details concerning Harry's sketchy past and his new relationship with Perry, whatever that actually is. Harry is pretty damn whumpable, and even gets his fair share in canon, and this fic gives tiny little peeks as to why he's slightly pathetic.

There are two things going on in tayberhecate's fic (neither of which are cases, actually), and they both come together brilliantly. Ostensibly, the story is about Harry slowly coming to learn that he doesn't have to steal Pop-tarts from 7-Eleven to avoid going hungry, but there's something else under the surface that's more subtle and human with Perry becoming a little bit more than just a meal ticket. There are several good little moments when Perry lets himself slip from being the arsehole employer and lets himself be Harry's friend which are all just wonderful.

1st-Dec-2011 09:31 am Fandom Overview: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
This is the fandom overview for the neo-noir movie Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, starring Robert Downey Jr, Val Kilmer, and Michelle Monaghan. Anyway, the person posting this is me, Zed, and I’ll be your narrator driver for the month of December. And, uh, just keep in mind, okay, that this overview does contain links to videos and things that may not necessarily be considered safe for work. It’s also like, loaded with spoilers, because there's just like, no way to explain this movie without spoiling the hell out of it.


Corpses floating in lakes, people kissing people, this is wrong. Okay? This is every shade of wrong )

Title: Well, You Walked Into the Party by usually_a_witch
Pairing: Tony Stark/Harry Lockhart
Author on LJ: [profile] usually_a_witch

Why this must be read:

The voice is so spot on it makes me want to cheer with joy. Yes, this works out to be RDJ/RDJ, and yes, that's insane (but maybe not as insane as Tony/Clone Tony, YMMV), and yes, it works. My only wish is that this story was longer and had a sequel and perhaps was made into a movie. Also, it's hot.

The thing about Noir is, the hero never gets the girl. Alright, sometimes he ends up with the Gal Friday, but considering I’m basically fulfilling that function for Perry at the moment, I’d rather not think about the implications of that one. There is guy-on-guy action in this story, but it’s not me and him. Shit, I just gave away the whole thing, you’d think I’d be better at this narration stuff by now.
