Why you should read it: Orwellian take on the Jemverse made even creepier by the suspicion that in this post-nipplegate world, we may not be so far off. Poor Stormer, always stuck in the middle. Excellent look at intra-Misfit dynamics, and terriffic plotting as well as characterisation of the entire ensemble.

Author: Charabok
Summary: Stormer's budding romance may lead to a lot of female-bonding and togetherness Author: the Misfits. Or not. Rated PG

Why you should read it: Stormer! Stormer/Riot! Femmeslash! It's like I've died and gone to ink and paint smut heaven.

Author: Kanna-Ophelia
Summary: The Holograms and Misfits join together in a beautiful celebration of Christmas spirit. Rated PG-13

Why you should read it: Excellent Kimber characterisation, snarky passive agressive hate for Jem, and Pizzazz has some laugh-out-loud funny lines. And did I mention the Kimber/Stormer goodness?

Works In Progress

Title: Bad Influence (slash)
Author: Kanna-Ophelia
Summary: Set during The Bands Break Up . It's humilating to Stormer to beg Jerrica and the Holograms for help, especially when she keeps forgetting she's no longer a Misfit, but she'd do pretty much anything for Jerrica's little sister... Rated PG

Why you should read it: this is a stunning missing scene/continuation story for "The Bands Break Up" which deos a lovely job of not just showcasing Kimber and Stormer's friendship, but also some lovely Stormer/Kimber as well. And it beautifully reminds the reader that Stormer was born a Misfit, after all.

Title: Open Secret (slash)
Author: Kanna-Ophelia
Summary: Set during "World Hunger Shindig." Eric sleeps on the couch, dreaming of a better world for rock managers everywhere. Rated PG

Why you should read it: More fun with Eric! Also, all the voices of the characters come through loud and clear.

Title: Versatility (slash)
Author: Kanna-Ophelia
Summary: Set after "Britrock." Jetta's tongue has landed her in the mess of all messes, and to make things worse, she can't figure out what Roxy thinks about it all. Rated PG

Why you should read it: Beautiful, beautiful continuation of the episode. The plane-ride chock full of tension is just a delight. Excellent characterisations all around.

Title: Our Time Is Now (gen/het)
Author: Aja
Summary: A continuation of the series, revolving around the personal reasons why Jerrica chose to create Jem. Rated PG-13

Why you should read it: Another story that actually makes me care about Jerrica and Rio. Who knew? Also, excellent Kimber & Stormer friendship, and wonderful Eric, as well.

Title: Totally Above It All (gen/slash)
Author: Charabok
Summary: Set during "Starbright: Falling Star." Pizzazz's life has become a kind of eternal slumber party, which she likes more than she's willing to admit - if she could only figure out just where Roxy fits into it all.

Why you should read it: Fabulous look at what makes Pizzazz tick, and how she views her sisters-in-rock. Plus, fun with props and costumes.

Title: Forbidden (slash)
Author: Iztayul Tepes
Summary:Anyone else sick of Kimber's love triangle? Rated R

Why you should read it: Why should the girls get to have all the slashy fun? Here Jeff and Sean discover that maybe they have more than Kimber in common.
