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 [livejournal.com profile] 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.

A Better Where to Find by Doyle – Beautiful, hopeful coda to “You’re Welcome”.

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.

techsupport@demon.com by Perri Smith – The Scoobies and the staff of Angel Investigations work together to stop another apocalypse. Between seasons 4-5/A1-A2

Dial N for Nancy-boy by deird1 – Spike and Angel have kept in touch. S4 through S7/A1-A4

Once More, With Lorne by hello_spikey – The Host makes a visit to Sunnydale while another nattily dressed singing demon is in town.

Battlefield of the Gods by bob_tales – Two hellgods walk into a cafe…

Past Perfect by HonorH – Dawn learns more about herself and people come back to life. Meanwhile, Buffy gets caught up with recent events, like the fact that Dawn’s new boyfriend is Angel’s son. After “Not Fade Away”

Sidenote: Dreamwidth has this nifty multiple-tags filter I’m trying out, so instead of creating hierarchies of tags like (hypothetically) recs: btvs, the equivalent is recs,btvs.
