Fandom: Leverage (characters), Emelan (fusion, universe but no characters)
Genre: Fusion
Length: Short (2,687 words)

Author's Summary:
Parker moves into Discipline.

Review:
I have a special love for Emelan fusions and or Parker, Hardison and Eliot so I jumped on this fic as soon as it was posted. Some really good choices were made to translate the characters into the Emelan world - their magics in particular. The characterization of all the characters is spot on too.

Title: Homecoming Frost
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Emirael
Fandom: Emelan, Frozen (Disney)
Genre: Fusion (Frozen characters in the Emelan universe)
Pairing: Elsa(& or /)Crown Princess of Namorn
Length: Medium (50,441 words)
rec'd on fancake

Author's Summary:
After the discovery of her ambient magic, Elsa was sent away from Namorn to study, leaving Anna alone in the wake of their parents' deaths. Years passed and, with Elsa's return imminent, Anna will have to navigate a delicate political landscape with a sister she barely knows to facilitate Elsa's arrival to Berenene's imperial court. Expectations are whirling and rumors already fly. The last time an ambient mage-heiress arrived from Winding Circle, she didn't exactly set a good precedent.

Review:
If you liked Will of the Empress, this is a must read!  I really liked it and it was nice to see some development of the unresolved cultural/political problems in Namorn at the end of Will of the Empress.  (Knowledge of the Frozen universe is not necessary.)

Title: The First Fold Of A New Paper
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] gala_apples
Fandom: Teen Wolf, Emelan
Genre: Crossover
Pairing: Boyd/Erica/Isaac, Stiles/Derek
Length: Short (2,954 words)

Author's Summary:
It’s been ten years since the last person in Emelan was murdered by unmagic. Ten years, and there’s his dad, smeared with it. Isaac can’t say it killed him, the broken neck seems more to blame, but the unmagic is a twist the Provost Guard might find difficult. It figures that even in death his father is impossible.

Review:
Just a short scene fitting the Teen Wolf characters into the Emelan universe. Isaac-centric. It's nothing complicated, but I liked the care and detail making the fusion work, and I liked that it briefly touched on class issues and privilege.

Fandom: Emelan (Tamora Pierce)
Genre: Family, Slice of Life
Length:  Short (Words: 7,440)

Author's Summary:
Dinner at 6 Cheeseman Street is a rather unpredictable affair.

Review:
A lovely, well-written slice of life fic where the four young mages from the Circle of Magic series are grown up and sharing a house together in the city, looking out for each other, and referencing some things that happen in canon that perhaps aren't explored enough.
