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.
