Summary: Why does Kyoko have to do her first-ever photo shoot in a bikini, of all things? And why won't Ren quit teasing her? It's an embarrassing day for Kyoko.
Why: I have to admit, I get a lot of amusement out of how oblivious Kyoko is to how Ren actually feels about her, and one of the great things about this fic is that it plays right into that amusement. The author also does a really great job of capturing Kyoko, by turns silly and serious, and always more powerful and special than she thinks she is, and her relationship with Ren.

Summary: When Koichi stops by the window counter to refill a couple's water glasses, he notices that the lawyer is back again, sliding into his usual seat in the middle of the busy main counter.
Why: I'll admit it. I'm a crossover fiend, and the idea of Ariake Koichi and Naruse Ryou meeting rings of cosmic fate to me, and not just because it's AU Ohmiya. Koichi and Naruse have a lot in common, a fact that waxrose skillfully points out. Both lost their families, both are out for murder, both feel alone, so there was definitely something magical about seeing them connect for me. Also, I kind of loved the way that waxrose fit things into the cracks between canon and made them work (and given the ending of Maou, broke my heart all over again).

Summary: Remus is tapped to investigate a magical girl in London and finds himself ensnared in a world full of demons, a secret war, and the life of a rather hyperactive thirteen-year-old Aino Minako.
Why: Argh, I love this crossover. The author does an amazing job of mixing the two fandoms and keeping it accurate to canon. This is set during Sailor V's days in London, when Remus Lupin is sent to investigate both her and the strange dark creatures that she battles. The relationship between Minako and Remus, which seems so unlikely at first glance, is done extremely well. I also found this interesting because it addresses a period of that, as someone who doesn't actively seek out Sailor Venus fic, was completely new to me. Add in top-notch characterization of both Minako and Remus, and you have a first-rate crossover that I highly recommend.
