Fanfic Recomendations  
More odds and ends this time dealing with love and friendship.

Fandom: Peter Pan
Title: Serenity
Author: Arella
Rating: A (G)
Summary: An alternate ending. What does Peter really want? Peter/Wendy
Link: http://www.mediaminer.org/fanfic/view_ch.php/134478/463274#fic_c

Reason to read: 
If you're like me and wanted to defenestrate the book when
Wendy goes home to her mundane life and then has to watch her daughter take off for adventures with Peter and it was supposed to be a happy ending then this is the fic for you. It's the way things should have happened, although it is a small bit too waffty in places.

Fandom: Brother Cadfael
Title: Bittersweet Hyssop
Author: Telsia-Cha'ris
Rating: T
Summary: After Hugh finds out that Cadfael has a son, he wants more details. When he gets the chance he asks. Cadfael tells him a little and remembers how it was with Mariam.

Reason to read:
I always wanted to see a conversation like this between Hugh and Cadfael and I always wanted to know more about Mariam. Since Ellis Peters has died this is the closest I'm going to get. The author captures the feel of the series and the relationship very well.

If you aren't a fan you will be hopelessly lost so instead of reading this seek out a copy of the first book in the series, A Morbid Taste for Bones. It's a really fast read and if you like well researched history, a good mystery, and interesting characters then you'll be hooked. There was one season of TV adaptations that are very good as well. Here is more info on the series: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brother_Cadfael

Fandom: Gargoyles
Title: Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship
Author: Kimberly T
Rating: K+
Summary: This started as a 100-word prezzie for another fan, but it turned into a drabble series about the adventures of Broadway and Bluestone, Private Investigators!
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4373464/1/Beginning_Of_A_Beautiful_Friendship

Reason to read:
It's fun and it captures the characters very well. The drabbles together form a larger story that is probably made more interesting by being told in 100 word snapshots. Not for non-fans. Sorry.

Fandom: Alien Nation
Title: Star Light, Star Bright
Author: Amilyn
Rating: K+
Summary: Emily smells of Earth lotions and the beauty products pre-teens so love, combined with the fresh-air scent of Earth's mountains. These are the scents she's growing up with, not the smell of sweat and fear and metal and fuel.
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2316099/1/Star_Light_Star_Bright

Reason to read: 
It's a beautiful father/daughter moment made even more so by the context. All non-fans need to know is that George and Emily are aliens of a race who were slaves until the ship carrying them made an emergency landing on Earth and now they, like all their people, are being assimilated in to Earth culture.
