Hello! I have three fic recs for you today. Three very different fics.
1) Some amazing person wrote this really, really fantastic BSG/BtVS crossover for me at pilots_presents
! I've read it three times already. It's so good. Thrilling and heart-breaking and so very satisfying. Lovely prose too. It's an AU in which Kara is called as the Slayer back in the 1890s (in the Australian outback! Though they don't stay there). Adama is her Watcher of course, and Lee is tagging along as a Watcher-in-training. Anyway, it's brilliant. Go read it: Prophecy Girl (Part One
and Part Two
2) I don't usually rec WIPs, but I'm enjoying this one so much and it is another BSG/BtVS crossover--and those are so rare. I check Twisting the Hellmouth pretty regularly (for those not in the know, it is a website specifically devoted to BtVS crossovers) but their BSG section is quite sparse. So imagine my surprise when I stumbled across Shaking the Cycle
! In this AU, Dawn is kindasortanotreally reincarnated on the Twelve Colonies...as Kara's younger sister. There are twenty chapters so far, but they're still on season 2.0. I'm really liking it so far.
3) Wounded Wing
. This fic is quite long, which some may find off-putting, but I loved it. Although I must caution you that it's not for every reader--it's very, very dark. This story deals with one possible version of Kara's incarceration on New Caprica and the repercussions once she returns to the fleet. There are scenes of torture and abuse, so if that upsets you too much you're probably best not reading it. Still, the bulk of the story takes place on Galactica, rebuilding Kara's distorted relationships with her friends and family. The link above is to the first chapter, or you can see all the chapters in the tags
Also I randomly watched "Water" today (my dad is rewatching the first season) and I had almost forgotten just how good the first season is. I mean, this episode only has one Kara scene in it and still, it is great! Oh, how I used to love Boomer and Chief and Cally and Gaeta (I still like Gaeta, but the other three are iffy). Also s1Gaius is so very amusing. And Lee, he was so awkward! But of course my favorite part of the episode is when Kara blows smoke in Baltar's face.
