A quick round-up of exchange stories I received over the summer.  I do recommend all of these stories and hope you'll click through to give these deserving authors the hit and a kudos.  :-)

Not Prime Time

Like a Rock by [archiveofourown.org profile] klutzy_girl - An alternate universe story about Grant Ward fitting into the team on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  It's set in the early seasons, prior to the reveal that Ward was HYDRA, and deals with him questioning his own loyalties.  I enjoyed this, because it's a sweet version of events that would have changed some major things in the series.

Sweetening the Loaves by [archiveofourown.org profile] Missy - I hoped very much for a book-verse Little House on the Prairie story, and this more than delivered.  A sweet, introspective look at Caroline Ingalls, just as the family has begun to settle in De Smet.  I really loved the author's take on Caroline and Charles' marriage, and her voices are all spot on.  Highly recommend, especially as there is so little in this fandom.

Time and Again by [archiveofourown.org profile] DesertScribe - A crossover between The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings.  Young Boromir ends up in Narnia and meets the Pevensies, and over time he and Susan fall in love - but they are never together for very long, and there's a lot of angst and adventure in their path.  It's a really lovely story and I just love the idea of Susan and Boromir together, especially the way this author makes it happen.

Room to Grow by [archiveofourown.org profile] StarSpray - Harry Potter is a fandom where the gen possibilities are endless; this one knocks it out of the park.  Neville, Ginny, and Luna, learning to deal with what happened to them at Hogwarts while Harry was off hunting horcruxes.  It's set post-series, but pre-epilogue.  I can't convey in words how much I love the way this author wrote Neville, in particular.  He's perfect.  This story is definitely worth a read.

[community profile] crossovering 
And Bide the Danger by Anonymous - A Narnia/Harry Potter crossover, answering the idea of Susan Pevensie existing in the wizarding world, and having an encounter with Amelia Bones.  The author set this during Amelia's Magical Law Enforcement training, and there is a wonderfully on-target guest appearance, and some incredible world-building to root the reader in the Harry Potter 'verse.  I loved all my stories this summer, but this one made me feel spoiled.  It's very sophisticated writing and I applaud the author for working to fully bring to life both universes so seamlessly.

The cotton yield was going to be miserably small, and Scarlett was afraid. )

Yuletide!

My dear Yuletide author! I am thrilled you're here, and thrilled we matched on something. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I keep reusing this intro. I need to update it. But, generally speaking: I prefer angst over fluff, I like happy endings that come after struggle or discord, I love character studies and backstories. I love minor characters in fic, the chance to flesh out what we don't see on the page or screen. Not into pregnancy AU, high school or university AU, or modern AU. BUT I love canon-divergence or AUs within the given universe (a different meet-cute, or a different ending, for example). While I love angst, I don't love trauma, especially of the sexual variety. Not into threesome pairings in any of my requested fandoms and prefer femslash if any slash (though not graphic).

Obviously, ODAO (optional details are optional).

I do have some ideas and prompts for you, but don't feel married to them at all, please!!

A few of these are requests I've made in the past, but quite awhile back.

Fandom specific prompts, etc )

peace & (mostly) quiet

when we first moved here several people said that it was a quiet area. and it is, for the most part.

you have people yelling at their spouse/significant other.
the loud guy feuding with someone in the first or second row of houses.
people yelling at their kids.
kids that think screaming/screeching is part of playtime.
cars with something wrong that clunk or squeal.
cars that go around with music blaring, especially after "the quiet hours" time period has started.

regarding the third one; my brother heard this from one of the houses behind us last week; "[girl's name] where did you pee? [girl's name] where did you pee? damn it [girl's name], where did you f**king pee?!"
