Title: Plausible Deniability
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] mizstorge
Fandom: Rivers of London, Good Omens
Genre: Casefic, Crossover
Pairings: Crowley/Aziraphale
Length: Short (Words: 5,867)

Author's Summary:
In which Inspector Thomas Nightingale pursues stolen books on magic, Aziraphale presides over a book sale, Constable Peter Grant tries to do his job, and Crowley values his domestic tranquility.

Review:
When there aren't any really spectacular supernatural murders on, Peter and Nightingale still have work to do - in this case, tracking down leads on books on real magic that really can't be left to fall into the wrong hands. Good luck getting Aziraphale to part with such a treasure (or any book) though.

Title: The Shadows Feel Like Home (National Service series)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] burntcopper 
Fandom: Chronicles of Narnia, Torchwood, Good Omens
Genre: Post-series, War, Dark, Crossover, Spies
Length: Long (Words: ~52k)
Warnings: Violence

Author's Summary:
In which the Pevensies trip, fall, and somehow end up in Torchwood. It's not Susan's fault she shot an alien that was trying to kill Jack Harkness.



(Note: this is the sixth fic in a series which, though it has its own story arc separate from those, does require some knowledge of the character of the Pevensies in those other fics so do read those first.  They're rec'd in their own post here because the two story arcs are very different)

Review:
Just as in the other fics of this series, the characterizations are fantastic and, at times, deliciously chilling.  This one doesn't highlight their competence quite like the arc before, and chooses to focus primarily on action rather than character though if you were left wanting more Susan and Lucy from fics 1-5, this one gives the girls their chance to shine.  This fic specifically is a great crossover (mainly Torchwood) that manages to keep me engaged and guessing even though I know all the canons involved.

Title: Arrangements-verse
Author:[livejournal.com profile] icarus_chained
Fandom: Supernatural, Good Omens
Pairings: Aziraphale/Crowley, Dean/Castiel and Sam/Gabriel
Genre: General
Length: Medium (Words: 85,735)

Author's Summary:
Team Free Will meets everyone's favourite angel and demon, and it all spirals from there.

Review:
Knowledge of Good Omens is not necessary.  This is a great story, even for a crossover with a fandom I know little about.  I like the treatment of faith, the Fallen, and Grace in this story as an alternative to Supernatural canon.  This fic is much more hopeful and positive, giving the good guys better powers because they're good.  I do like the canon way of keeping everything uncertain and dark, but this is a nice alternative that works really well for this fic.
