FK Recommendation June 2010

What's Good?  As we head into summer, I recommend [personal profile] james's "In the Beginning, James Created..." (1995, rated R), the first complete-AU fanfiction I ever read.  This story makes Natalie the vampire cop, and shuffles all the other characters by matching rarely-observed affinities.  But while different characters fill the roles, the relationships stay with the roles.  I see a serious interpretive argument underneath the funhouse ride of this AU; I enjoy that.

I don't want to spoil the story's biggest mind-bender, but I'll hazard that no one but [personal profile] james could have imagined it for us.  It's weird.  And it's worth a thought.

What's New on FKFic-L?  The fiction email list did not see a single new story in May.  But nine have dropped in June to date!  So there will be a list here next month.
