Fanfic Recs: Potpourri  
It's a real mix this time but I've been waiting since April to see if I could find something to go with two of these to make a themed post and not coming up with anything. The closest I can come is that these three all deal with transformations of a kind and at various points play with the idea of Home.


Fandom: Spirted Away
Title: To Make a River
Author: Harukami

Beautiful continuation fic in which Chihiro works towards a happy ending. I can't say much more without giving things away.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fandom: Lord of the Rings
Title: Of Shape and Hue and Home
Author: Thundera Tiger Summary: Take a master of shape and hue. Stir in a troubled wizard and four hobbits. Add a dash of surprising Ranger. Mix thoroughly until shape and hue begin to blend...

A mostly lighthearted humor fic with a few really touching serious moments and some gorgeous descriptive passages. Radagast the Brown has a featured role and he's a character I don't see enough of. Best of all, we get to see how Gandolf might deal with it if he got turned into a hobbit. Totally gen. Rated K.

Fandom: X-Men
Title: The World Outside Was Hungry
Author: tzigane, Zaganthi (Caffiends)
Summary: He supposed that he wasn't the only member of the psychology department who heard voices, nor was he the only one who did not attribute it to illness.
Warnings: Graphic violence, graphic depictions of Auschwitz in flashbacks, explicit sex, slash

Novel length AU that draws heavily from the new movie and Marvel canon. Charles meets Erik and finally finds someone who is like him and we follow the results over 30+ years. Straight or not, canon or not, the thing that fascinates me about the relationship between Professor X and Magneto has always been the way that they are so connected to one another, even when it's as opposite sides of the same coin. In this story that connection is explored and I would have read it in one sitting if it weren't for petty things like having to sleep and go to work..
