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
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] hradzka
Author Website: David Hines on AO3
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.

Fandom: Ocean's Eleven
Pairing: Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] mousapelli
Author Website: The Rat Box
why this must be read:

Because it's hilarious, with a dead-on Saul voice, plus, we get the gang sneaking into a movie theatre, with all the hilarity that entails. Saul harasses Rusty to get back together with Danny. Slots right into canon, and will put a big grin on your face.

Rusty's working for the Man, and Danny drops by for a visit. And the details of a real heist are put to good use. Funny, smart, hot and in character. Never has one slice of pizza been so meaningful.

Author Website: LJ memories
why this must be read:

Everyone thinks Danny and Rusty are a couple. Danny and Rusty are the last to know. Saul takes matters into his own hands. Hilarious and hot, with awesome cameos by Linus and Saul, and sparkling banter that will leave a smile on your face.

Author Website: [livejournal.com profile] marinarusalka
why this must be read:

And another one from [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, 2005 vintage: "The Deal" is a fantastic story in which Tess leaves Danny, and Danny goes back to Rusty, or he would, if Rusty would stay in one place long enough for Danny to get there. Funny, hot, smart, and cool, just like Danny and Rusty.

Fandom: Ocean's Eleven
Pairing: none - Linus-centric gen
Author on LJ: [unknown at this time]
Author Website: [unknown at this time]
why this must be read:

Another from this year's [livejournal.com profile] yuletide challenge, this story is hilariously awesome. Linus is having an existential crisis. Possibly there are superhero metaphors involved.

Danny Ocean is absolutely Batman. Crazy, mortal, invincible through sheer force of will and wits. Changes identities with the flip of a switch. Looks good in a suit. Batman.

Fandom: Ocean's Eleven
Pairing: Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] angelgazing
Author Website: Skyehawke profile
why this must be read:

This is a long, languid, luxurious story of the road trip Danny and Rusty take before everything falls apart the first time. It's hot, beautifully written, heartbreaking and hilarious.

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] sparky77
Author Website: Q's Fic
why this must be read:

This is a really fun story with some brilliant insights into Danny and Rusty and Linus, and the complex relationship amongst the three of them, and a sharp, spot-on Linus voice. And the ending is hilarious.

Author on LJ: [unknown at this time]
Author Website: [unknown at this time]
why this must be read:

This is brand spanking new, from this year's [livejournal.com profile] yuletide challenge. It's a bittersweet, elegiac post-O13 story. Danny and Rusty spend one last weekend together in Paris. Spare and sharp and insightful.

18th-Dec-2007 10:55 am Six to Eight Months by Cherry Ice (PG)
Fandom: Ocean's Eleven
Pairing: Rusty Ryan/Tess Ocean, Danny Ocean/Tess Ocean (implied Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan)
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] cherryice
Author Website: Cherry Bombs
why this must be read:

Because it fleshes Tess out and makes her a person instead of the brittle construct she is in the movie. Because the pacing is languid and the language is lyrical, and because this is a Tess I can believe Danny would fall in love with, and who I believe Rusty would share him with.

This is Rusty and Tess on the road while Danny is in jail after the first movie, and it's lovely.

13th-Dec-2007 11:52 am Trading in Your Own Name by Gale (R)
Fandom: Ocean's Eleven
Pairing: Linus Caldwell/Rusty Ryan
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] iphignia939
Author Website: Get on Board
why this must be read:

Because this is a sharp, smart look at Linus -- his intelligence, his ability to fade into the background, his keen sense of observation -- and it provides him with a really cool history -- it's all done here and done well, along with a nice look at Rusty and an understanding of the things that bring them together.

7th-Dec-2007 02:48 pm Leave Emotion @ the Door by zahra (PG)
Fandom: Ocean's Eleven
Pairing: Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan, with incidental Rusty Ryan/Linus Caldwell
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] hackthis
Author Website: dysfunctional
why this must be read:

Another classic, this one handles the problem of Tess with aplomb. It's also a smart and funny look inside Rusty's head, with some neat back story about his relationship with Danny, and his feelings about Tess, the Benedict job, and those pesky Incan matrimonial headmasks.

4th-Dec-2007 04:42 pm Confidence Men by Dorinda (R)
Hi hi. I'm victoria p. and I'll be driving the getaway car for this month of Ocean's 11 recs. I am pretty hardcore OTP about Danny/Rusty, so that's pretty much what all my recs will be, possibly with some gen sprinkled in.

I'm starting with a fandom classic.

Fandom: Ocean's Eleven
Pairing: Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan
Author on LJ: N/A
Author Website: Dorinda's Bare Bones Page
why this must be read:

Confidence Men is the granddaddy of O11 fanfic. Written for the first [livejournal.com profile] yuletide challenge, it's the kind of story that launches a fandom into the bigtime, with sharply observed characterization, snappy dialogue, deftly understated emotion both past and present, and a believable back story for Danny and Rusty. It's a classic for a reason.

I know we're only supposed to do one crossover, but I was basically being asked to choose between Christian Kane and Brad Pitt and that just ain't right, so this can count as one of recs for the month and you can send me to bed without supper or something

Title: You Can't Have Confidence Without a C-O-N by Hackthis
Fandom: Lost/Ocean's 11
Pairing: Rusty/Sawyer, Rusty/Danny, and a wee bit of Rusty/Linus
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] hackthis
Author Website: Dysfuntional

Why this must be read:

Did you see the pairings? And also it's hysterical. And there are french fries. And Danny was just kidding about the Tess thing. And it has the best ending ever. And, okay, so it's kind of more of an Ocean's 11 fic with a guest spot by Sawyer, but he's there, and it's awesome, and did I mention the french fries?
