Why this must be read: Not so much a cross-over as a fusion, but it's one of those things that if you know and love Winnie-the-Pooh, you're going to laugh extra hard. The team is doing a job for Disney, and their best strategy is to go into a dream of the Hundred Acre Wood and let the dream assign them to be characters ... Rabbit, Eeyore, Piglet, etc. Okay, so it sounds like crack fic - I know - but the thing that makes this story extraordinary is that it's not just that.

Yes, the premise is absurd, but the personalities of the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh characters fit so well with the Inception team. There are laugh out loud moments - Arthur/Rabbit's obsession with carrots (and pot) is hilarious. There are moments that are absolutely heart-breakingly poignant and sweet ... like when Eames realizes he's lost the ability to forge within the dream. And besides the wonderful characterizations, there's also an underlying plot that ties it all together.

'This,' Arthur says, blinking asleep, 'is the weirdest fucking thing we've ever done.' )

Why this must be read:

In a crossover for the ages, Pooh and company meet Darth Vader and Jango Fett. This story mixes delightful characters from Milne with the grim helmeted visages of the GFFA, and it's telling that the winners seem to be Milne's, even though Tigger gets stapled to a tree in the Hundred Acre Woods and decides that 'us tiggers don't like staples.' How the two universes mixed and how they separate again make for a charming story with a wry off-screen narrator, and Vader's character 'voice' so excruciatingly right that you'll agree with Jango that the Avogadro Constant must have been implemented, despite protestations to the contrary. Read this story, and smile for a week. Cover art here.
