First of all, I am very, VERY proud that the very first -- and as yet only *g* -- Third Watch fanfic in the Yuletide archive was written expressly for MEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Bosco and Yokas were great with the angst and torment, but they also did excellent work in the lighter storylines. This fic reads like one of those, where the humor comes from the way they interact with each other, the way Faith was a ROCK STAR for putting up with Bosco at his most obnoxious. A Can of Beer and Thou, check it out.

(I know the story was written by a pinch-hitter, and I swear, I almost think it might have been someone on my flist. Whoever it is gave me EXACTLY the Asshole Bosco that I love. Who else would know that unless they've been listening to me swoon over him all these years? Hee!)

Second of all, there are some awesome stories coming from shows I adore. Such as:

-If you liked and miss The Class, you will enjoy An Unexpected Christmas. Not a pairing I expected, but the voices in it ring true.

-For the Mac/PC commercial fans, Hasta La Vista and Hanging Out, BFF are worth reading. COOKIES. Genius!

-Friday Night Lights has a number of good stories, including:
Permutations -- not all the pairings worked for me, but the Matt/Julie and Tim/Tyra tore at my heart.
Sun of a New Season -- Tami and Julie, still working on figuring each other out.
The Biggest Win -- Coach meets Mrs. Coach for the first time. As messily perfect as you thought it would be.
That Guy -- Billy, Billy, Billy, Billy, BILLY!

There's a bunch more in that fandom I still have to read, too.

-The definitive How I Met Your Mother fic this year for me is Leave No Man Behind. I've been a secret Robin/Barney shipper for a while now; this story cements that for me. It is legen -- wait for it -- DARY. Suit Up is a lot of fun as well.

-I don't particularly remember loving Jennifer Crusie's "Faking It" (I like "Crazy for You" more), but Do wa diddy makes me want to pull out my copy and read it again. Very fun.

-The greatest thing about Medium is the wonderful oasis of normalcy in the middle of all the chaos. A Morning Conversation highlights that, letting Joe and Lee have a much-needed conversation between the two of them, non-psychic to non-psychic.

-Northern Exposure is the perfect show to support a multi-fandom crossover, as exemplified in Strangers in a Strange Land. Not really shows I watch, but I did recognize most of them through fannish osmosis. Not sure about the Marilyn segment, though. Can anyone fill me in?

-I never saw Terminator 3, but knowledge of 1 and 2 is all that's needed to let How To Change the World Without Even Trying rip your heart to shreds. It's John's world through his eyes, and it's not easy.

I think I still have the Janet Evanovich and Rex Stout stories to dive into, but these are the ones I've found and loved so far!

I'm pretty sure the Marilyn segment is "Heroes," what with Nathan Petrelli the "flying man."

The one I think I should recognize but don't is "The Pie Hole" one.

Ahhh, thank you, that makes sense.

I think the Pie Hole one is "Pushing Daisies". Just the kind of cutesy environment that Adam would hate. Heh.

<--note I only know either of those two except via fannish osmosis

Marilyn's flying man is Heroes' Nathan Petrelli. And the Pie Hole is from Pushing Daisies.

(and glad you guys liked it!)

You know, I saw the Third Watch one and almost went, "Oh! I have to e-mail upsy_daisy and let her know there's one here!"

Then I saw you actually *were* the recipient.

Some day I will make you watch a TW episode. Some day!
