Title: Corner of Your Eye
Author: Maychorian
Fandom(s): Crossover SG1, Supernatural
Warnings: No warnings apply.
Word Count: ~26,000
Summary: Jack O'Neill is not very good at being retired. Dean Winchester is not very good at staying out of trouble. And there's something lurking in these here woods.... What if Jack had retired after Season 8 and met Dean just before the beginning of season 1 of Supernatural?
Commentary: If you loved the early seasons of Supernatural, and wanted to see more of Jack O'Neill this is a great way to get both. These are wonderful versions of the characters, who build a convincing friendship while dealing with a haunting.

'Dean flapped a hand in easy agreement. "Hell, yeah, man, I can do anything. I'm Dean Winchester, doncha know."

Jack chuckled gently. "No, I didn't know that. But right now I just need you to stand up. C'mon kid, I'm not as young as I used to be, and it's been awhile since I packed a buddy out of the jungle."

"Dude, you are freakin' Rambo."

"Yup, that's me," Jack said with a sort of indulgence. Then his voice became hard, commanding. "Now, on your feet, soldier!" '

Title: Miss Dora Baggins' Book of Manners
Author: Dreamflower
Fandom(s): Tolkien
Warnings: Technically a WIP, but as it's not a story as such, the lack of a decreed final chapter doesn't really matter.
Summary: Or The Shire Hobbit's Guide to Proper Behavior for Every Occasion "Dora was Drogo's sister and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she...had written reams of good advice for more than half a century..." In S.R. 1403, at the age of 102, she presented her life's work to the Shire.
Commentary: A wonderful piece of world-building, adding to the society of the Shire as portrayed in Tolkien's books, with a wise and gently amusing take on proper manners for any number of situations. Even if you don't usually read Tolkien fanfic, this is well worth the time of any Lord of the Rings fan.

'It is the duty of every Hobbit to endeavor to present a good example of Proper Behavior. A Hobbit of the Shire should always keep in mind the Principles of Respectability, which are to be Kind, Hospitable and Predictable. Propriety demands no less.'
