I'm not generally one to plug fanfic, but...this is seriously the most amazing thing I've ever read. And I'm only on chapter 5.

Harry was breathing in short pants. His voice came out choked. "You can't DO that!"

"It's only a Transfiguration," said McGonagall. "An Animagus transformation, to be exact."

"You turned into a cat! A SMALL cat! You violated Conservation of Energy! That's not just an arbitrary rule, it's implied by the form of the quantum Hamiltonian! Rejecting it destroys unitarity and then you get FTL signaling! And cats are COMPLICATED! A human mind can't just visualize a whole cat's anatomy and, and all the cat biochemistry, and what about the neurology? How can you go on thinking using a cat-sized brain?"

McGonagall's lips were twitching harder now. "Magic."

And it only gets better.

Day 18 - Whatever tickles your fancy

Somewhat weirdly, I'm going to go back to fanfic for today. Because apparently I'm reading more of it now. I'm not sure if that means I'm more disappointed in the shows I watch, or I'm realizing more of the value of using fanfic to flesh out areas that the shows never will.

Anyway. Today I give you Ten Nonlinear Moves, a wonderful NCIS fic. It takes place in the period of time after Gibbs left, when Tony was in charge of the team.

And just for fun, The Scottish Play (No, the Other One), a Community fic from the [ profile] help_haiti auction.

Day 15 - A fanfic
Hmm. Well, I don't really read fanfic, but there are a couple of exceptions. First is the excellent Virtual Gilmore Girls. Since I was so disappointed with the way the show ended, I was happy to see someone carrying the story on, into a much better place. Virtual Season 10 is currently on hiatus (the episodes "air" as if they were the actual show) and I can't wait until it comes back!

Secondly, here's a one-off story I thoroughly enjoyed: Journey's Dawn. It's a crossover fic between new-Doctor Who and Diane Duane's Young Wizards universe. And it frames Ten in a way that I really enjoyed, because there really has been something "off" about him. Manic and enjoyable yes, but also just a bit off. Plus, it gives Donna a wonderful story.
