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.

Summary: How was Neo Tokyo founded? and why does Chibi Usa never grow up? these questions and more...
Why: The summary to this story nearly deluded me into thinking that it wasn't worth my time. However, I'm here to tell you that this story has depths beyond the simple summary. Yes, it answers the questions above, as advertised. However, it does a lot more than just that. To me, this story is a study in who Usagi is and who Mamoru is and just what it is that binds the two of them together. Although there is action, this definitely a story that focuses on character more than anything else. The author obviously put a great deal of thought into this story and into this time. The result is a well-crafted and intriguing story.
