Only two out of eleven of you who responded to my last post said that you read crossovers, and only three said fusions. I am outraged! Horrified and hurt!
As you may know, or may have guessed from my reccing habits, I ADORE crossovers. Therefore, I am disowning you all. (Except for wickednotevil
. I will let you live.)
Now, believe you me, there are a lot of bad crossovers out there. I especially hate ones where the author's two favourite slash couples meet and everyone is gay. This is not because I hate either pairing, but because I tend to find it awkward and unlikely that they would all be sleeping with what you might call unexpected partners; it's an extension of my hatred of 'everyone's gay!' fic in general.
HOWEVER! A good crossover is an absolute joy, one where characters meet and interact who wouldn't necessarily do so otherwise, and you get to see the way the two universes can be slotted together. Put it this way - I have 141 crossovers bookmarked on my delicious
. Which is why today I'm going to rec you some crossovers, regardless of whether you like crossovers or not! Take that!
(I swear tomorrow I will rec you something you have actually said you like.)

Ianto Jones died on a Monday night at exactly six thirty-seven p.m. This wouldn’t have been so remarkable if not for the fact that Ianto Jones was fated to exist for longer than almost any dead man in the known multiverse.Tags: torchwood
