Pairing: Christine Chapel/Marshall Mann, Christine Chapel/Leonard McCoy (UST), Mary Shannon/Marshall Mann (UST), Christine Chapel/Roger Korby
Fic Title: Will You Meet Me Halfway?
Rating/Warning(s): R/M, crossover.
Genre: Friendship, AU, Angst, Romance
Why This Must Be Read: Because not only is it incredibly original, it's adorable as hell. It's also more of a character insert than a full-on crossover (no spaceships!). That being said, both Christine and Marshall (and Mary and McCoy, for that matter) are just these great characters who deserve happiness and rainbows. Add on the slightly bittersweet tension between Christine and McCoy, and Mary and Marshall... well. It's just masterfully done.

Fic Title: Louder Than Sirens, Louder Than Bells
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, crossover.
Genre: Angst, AU, friendship.
Why This Must Be Read: Because this is the absolutely white-hot sequel to the earlier story that throws McCoy and Mary and their emotional fucked-upedness into the mix and kind of rips your heart out in the process of making you grope for some ice water. I love this AU because the characters are just so PRESENT and dead-on, and it breaks your heart for pretty much all of them, even as you can see exactly why they are where they are and are doing what they're doing.
