Oh, I want to record Marriage a Trois so much! Ugh, I don't really want to say I will because I've already committed to recording a different fic for a friend, but I'd do a lot of a podfic of that fic.

Thank you for reminding me of it, to say the least. :)

None of these authors are on the blanket permission list.

I particularly love this first one and would be deeply grateful to anyone who recorded it:
Title of Story: Eat it Twilight
URL: http://archiveofourown.org/works/58767/chapters/77793
Author: Liliaeth
Fandom: Criminal Minds/Supernatural
Ship: None
Word Count: 45,775
Summary: The BAU has to deal with a serial killer who believes he's hunting vampires. The unsub's name, Dean Winchester.

Title of Story: Weiß Kreuz
Author: Sorion
Fandom: Weiss Kreuz and Torchwood
Brad Crawford/Schuldig; Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones; Naoe Nagi/Tsukiyono Omi
Word Count: 45,701
Summary: It's been four years since the 456. Four years since the fall of the museum. They are coming.

I don't know if anyone reading this is familiar with Weiß Kreuz--it's a very illogical anime about Japanese florist assassins and European psychics--but it inspired some great fanfiction. This is a Children of Earth fix-it and the author makes the canons work together unexpectedly well.

Title of Story:You Flew Pretty Good
URL: http://archiveofourown.org/works/374936/
Author: operationhades
Fandom: SGA and Supernatural
Ship: none
Word Count: 17,266
Summary: Gabriel has the perfect idea to put the apocalypse on full stop. Really, it's absolutely brilliant. And with a click of his fingers, the idea is set to roll. And no, he won't take Dean and Sam's ungratefulness to heart – he's used to it by now. AKA that time Gabriel clicked his fingers and Dean and Sam ended up in different puddlejumpers far away in a galaxy unknown. Being shot at. By the Wraith. (Plus, for some unknown, innate, reason - everyone mentally insults Dean.)

Title of Story: St. Louis
URL: http://soulcake.skeeter63.org/johnandrodney1.html
Author: Dasha
Fandom: SGA fusion with the Sentinel -- linked to her Imperfections series but independent
Ship: John/Rodney
Word Count: 18,169
Summary: In the mid 80s, Rodney is a fragile sentinel changing guides almost as often as other people change socks.

And who the hell managed to steal his work from the inside of a locked filing cabinet?

Tony wants to help. Coulson wants to keep everyone happy. Clint just wants a garden and for the Avengers to piss off and let him grow weed in peace.

Take the disturbing content warning seriously but it's a very well done story.
