Multifandom recs about female characters for #halfamoon February 25, 2016

Posted by Erin Ptah in Recommendations.

…Compiling this was kind of a depressing reminder about how little fic I’ve read (well, read and enjoyed) over the past year.

But on the bright side: I enjoyed all of these! And halfamoon gives me an excuse to double-share them.

Steven Universe | Connie, OC, Gems | G | that which they defend

You never really thought much of Connie Maheswaran. She was just that one shy, nerdy girl. Then, she comes back in seventh grade and it’s like she’s a completely different person. And this person has a sword.
Sailor Moon | Makoto, Inners | T | The Aerodynamics of Friendship

When Mako faces a troubling school assignment, it’s up to her friends to come to the rescue! For some value of “rescue”.
Narnia, Lord of the Rings | Susan, Eowyn, Ents | G | a home for every season

Susan was across the battlefield when Eowyn faced down the lord of the Nazgul, Merry and his little dagger at her side. Susan was sending arrows into orcs and oliphaunt drivers, guiding her horse with her calves and heels and shifts of her weight.
Sailor Moon | Haruka/Michiru, Kunzite/Zoisite, senshi | T | Haruka and Zoisite Get Together :O

Haruka’s sad because Michiru is too busy with Sailor business to play monopoly with her. Zoisite’s upset because Kunzite got fed up with opening jars of pickles for him. When the two meet up and start hanging out, what will this lead to? Will Michiru and Kunzite be able to get their partners back? Will Zoisite learn to open pickle jars? Will Michiru ever put some clothes on?
Better Off Ted | Veronica, Linda, Ted, Phil, Lem | G | In Lighter News

“And in lighter news,” Veronica said, reading on, “despite the combined efforts of both the American and Chinese cyber-divisions, Jabberwocky has gained control of the stock exchange.”
Better Off Ted | Ted/Veronica/Linda, others | T | Rated B for Brillig

“I can’t believe your solution was to invent an imaginary project,” Linda said. “Isn’t that what got you into this Jabberwocky mess, having to come up with a new product?”
Hellsing | Heinkel/Yumiko | T | Dualität

Yumiko has an important question for her partner.
Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon | Usagi, Phobos, Deimos | G | Feathered Friends

Usagi makes friends very easily.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica | Homura/Madoka | T | Things to Remember

Before your life was reduced to the stretch of time between March 16th and April 30th, you dreamed of something magical happening to you.
Leverage, Animorphs | Cassie, Leverage team | T | The Hork-Bajir Job

When three Hork-Bajir are kidnapped from Yellowstone National Park and sold to an alien zoo, Cassie knows who to call: a team of three morphers, an alien tech hacker, and a former Controller, called Leverage.
Madoka Magica | Madoka | G | Gems and Meteors

Even without its owner, it was powerful enough to destroy the planet. And it only grew.
Kim Possible | Kim/Shego, others | T | Alone, Together

Kim and Shego are straight, archenemies, and trapped in an alternate reality, just the two of them. This is how they fall in love.
Doctor Who, Magic School Bus | Bernice, the Friz, kids | G | Archaeology for Dummies (time-traveler’s edition)

An educational learning experience involving school buses, incriminating stories and eldritch horrors from beyond the grave. This probably wasn’t on the course outline.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer | Spike/Buffy, Willow/Tara, ensemble | T | Gently Down the Stream

Here’s Buffy’s life in a nutshell: dead mom, dead-beat dad, dead end job, dependent sister. She’s pulling double shifts at the Double Meat Palace to make ends meet.

And yet, she’s actually pretty happy! She’s got supportive friends and a sexy English boyfriend. Her life is full of love, and frankly after that accident last year and the coma, she’s grateful just to be alive.

Stargate, A:tLA | Toph, Zuko, Sam, Janet, ensemble | K+ | The Dragon King’s Temple

The spite of the spirits opened a door better left untouched. On the other hand, with Fire and Earth as one’s allies, sometimes escaping is the easy part.
Pippi Longstocking, various | Pippi, ensemble | G | Five Times Pippi Longstocking Turned Down an Offer, and One Time She Said Yes

With guests from Pirates of the Caribbean, X-Men, Buffy, Star Trek DS9, Doctor Who.
Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 | Chloe/June | M | My big fat fake gay wedding

“So we get married for realsies. After a month or two, we just file for divorce and I’ll claim I was going through a phase.”
Sailor Moon | Rei | T | Dear Smut People – Sailor Mars’ Argument on Quality

After being forced to watch several Sailor Senshi-based pornos, Rei writes a letter complaining over the portrayal of Sailor Mars and offers some constructive criticism.
Better Off Ted | Ted/Linda, Veronica, Lem, Phil, Rose | G | Viridian Magnolia

“How is it being married to Ted? Is it magical, like a glow in the dark giraffe let loose in a municipal park?”
Mallory Ortberg | Andrea, Miranda | G | Ayn Rand’s The Devil Wears Prada

ANDREA: Be silent. I do not require explanations. I will never apologize for my newfound excellence. I will speak to whatever man I consider fit to talk to. And I would describe him as more “weirdly ugly-cute” than “hot.” He has no eyebrows.
Qualia the Purple | Gaku/Yukari | T | The Nine (Million) Lives of Hatou Manabu

The road to Yukari is long, but – no matter how many paths it takes – Gaku will find a way.
Revolutionary Girl Utena | Anthy/Utena | M | Anthy’s Turn

After the Duel called Revolution it’s Anthy’s turn to go to Utena. But where in the world is the girl who wanted to be a prince?
