Kafka, Schmafka by ishie (PG)

Fandom Category: The Big Bang Theory
Pairing: Sheldon/Penny
Fic Title: Kafka, Schmafka
Author: ishie
Rating/Warning(s): PG, no warnings given.
Genre: Delicious crack with a dash of romance.
WIP?: No; complete at ~20,000 words.

Why This Must Be Read: The first and most important thing to know about this story is that it has Sheldon and a little girl playing FASHION SHOW. (There are even ponies. It is FABULOUS: "...Without rules, what's to stop me from declaring that my doll is the new wardrobe coordinator and forcing all of yours to wear substandard outfits? Or, better yet, to discard your premise altogether and move the narrative in a direction better suited to my knowledge and skills sets?")

The other thing you should know is that Howard turns into a fairy, so it's kindasorta crackfic, but very, very well written despite that. Love the established relationship between Sheldon and Penny, but it's also wonderful the way the group actually feels like a close-knit group of friends, when too often on the show they simply don't. Six thumbs straight up for tight writing in an urban fantasy.

(If you're new to the fandom, I'd recommend the rest of ishie's fic as a superb introduction to the fandom; you can find her stories under her author tag at sheldon_penny.)
