testament, authors Alicorn and Moriwen, in progress. Better with prior exposure to Eclipse, Mori's Jean template, and the short story Will, but it's so good.

Shameless self-promotion! Threads of mine that I think are Particularly Good in one respect or another.

Good threads for introductions to...

...the Path to Perfection:
this is the road to ruin
Stalas (a Miles) on the Path. Benefits from, but does not require, familiarity with Stalas

Over the Empty Land
Scott McCall (from Teen Wolf) on the Path

...dystopian Star Trek:
that they were afraid
Hall (a Kappa template) encounters the exploding-planet scenario

no time for the future
Serik (a Serg, also a Kappa template) ditto

climbing walls chasing stars
A Chainsaw (yet another Kappa template) in a less explodey part of Star Trek

...Faith & co:
In Buffyverse, with Throne's Theo

Giggle at a funeral
Buffyverse again, this time with Jarn's Scott McCall

I've got a list of names, authors Alicorn and lintamande, picked up after a stall. Long. Amenta, post-in-color, meets Earth, with wizards, in the early nineteenth century, as introduced in the Unbreakable Vow section of Silmaril. I am told that despite these dependencies it can be read, perhaps not cold, but lukewarm. Particularly Good for fictive politics and contentious alt interactions.

mmm whatcha say, authors Alicorn and lintamande. Silmaril (in the form of pealed Loki) meets Infinity War (in the form presented in this lintafic). I think it requires that context but you could try without; the characters do make some attempt to explain things to one another onscreen. Particularly Good for linta's takes on Tony Stark and Shuri, a problem that can actually be more than a speed bump to the peal, and time travel tactics.
