Watching season 5 of Angel made me hunger for Cordy fic. Here are some of the gems:
And When the Sky Was Opened: The Passion of Cordelia Chase by eleusis_walks – An essay on Cordy's roles in all 5 seasons of Angel
Off the Board by Doyle – (crossover with Sandman) Cordelia dreams; or, “You were a pawn who briefly became a knight – or a queen. And you’ve just been taken off the board.” (I couldn’t say it better than the author’s summary; it’s so perfect, I can just see Cordy falling into a coma (end of S1), learning how to use a sword in S3, wearing white or black in S4.) The resonances about pregnancy, sleep, and supernatural agency (enough to power scholarly volumes for both works, I’m sure) are chilling.
Now that I've finished watching Angel (having finished BtVS a couple of years ago), I’m enjoying the crossovers between two different shows in the same ’verse.
More on shipping in future posts; these are genfic, fairly funny and likely to appeal to most people.
