Summary: Bleach characters play "Spin the Bottle."
Why: I know, it's a horrible cliche. It's also, I'm not going to lie, complete crack. Harukami has great comedic timing, and I laughed like a madwoman when I was reading this. Rukia and Orihime are especially memorable to me, although I'll admit that Ichigo and Renji did amuse me.

If you're looking for substance and seriousness, this is not for you. But if you're looking for a quick laugh on a cloudy day, this is what it's all about.

Fandom: Narnia
Pairings/Characters: Peter, Edmund
Rating: PG-13

Summary: Some lads stand out when they're called up.
Why: OK, so here's a question. How do the Pevensies cope with the 'real world' after their time in Narnia? We see a little bit of this in Prince Caspian, but not enough, in my opinion. This is one possible answer, based on the idea of first Peter and then Edmund ending up in the army.

Gunbunny uses outside perspective perfectly in these stories, showing just how out of place the Pevensies really are, and the ways that it simultaneously benefits them and isolates them. None of these stories is very long, and the rating doesn't go above PG-13, and yet there's something dark about them. Maybe it's the glimpse of the skills that they learned in Narnia, or maybe it's the question of why they needed those skills at all. Either way, it's a fascinating look at the way that Peter and Edmund fit back into the world, and the places where they make the world fit around them. My only regret is that we only see Susan and Lucy in the last fic; I'd really like to see more of how they're coping as well.

Fandom: Harry Potter/Psych crossover
Pairings/Characters: Hermione, Shawn, Gus
Rating: PG-13

Summary: Hermione is determined to make people listen to her - even if she has to pretend to be psychic to do it.
Why: I've been all for Hermione-centric fic lately, and this is a product of that obsession. If you are a fan of both the Psych and Harry Potter fandoms, then this might be a good fic for you. I don't know that it would stand alone as well if you're not familiar with Psych though, so reader be warned.

Of course, you could read it just for Hermione, who is pretty lovely. I really liked her in this, taking action and doing things that she wasn't sure she could. I also liked the occasional outside perspective of her that the story gives us through the eyes of the Psych characters. And even though it's 9 chapters long, the story goes quickly, buoyed by good character interactions and the development of the plot.
