NOTICE: Unfortunately, maintaining these recs pages has gotten to be too much work, given the amount of fic that I read. So from now on, I'll be keeping track of good fics via my AO3 bookmarks and the delicious account Grey Bard started for me.

The Great Old Pumpkin
By John Aegard
A Snoopy/Cthulhu crossover. "As you are no doubt aware, I am the issue of solid Dutch stock—the prosperous Van Pelt family of St. Paul. Mine was a comfortable and happy childhood, and I spent much of it in the devoted service of the Great Old Pumpkin."

What Ho, Gods of the Abyss!
(c)2007 Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill.
Lovecraft/Jeeves & Wooster crossover.

I Cthulhu, or, or What's A Tentacle-Faced Thing Like Me Doing In A Sunken City Like This (Latitude 47° 9' S, Longitude 126° 43' W)?
by Neil Gaiman

A Study in Emerald (PDF file)
by Neil Gaiman
Sherlock Holmes in a universe where the Old Ones have risen.

The Terror From Bohemia
Irene Adler as a hunter of the Old Ones.

Author: sound-of-bells
Fandom/Pairing: Sherlock Holmes, Holmes/Watson
Word Count: 41,500
Rating/Warnings: R for violence, language, drug use, general content
Summary: In a world dominated by an alien monarchy, criminals Sherlock Holmes and John Watson work to take down the royal establishment while detective James Moriarty and his associate Sebastian Moran try to track them down. Also featuring by Irene Adler and Roderick Maclean, who did in fact exist. AU based on Neil Gaiman's phenomenal short story "A Study in Emerald."
Disclaimer: As far as I am aware, Conan Doyle's work is in the public domain, and Lovecraft encouraged others to make use of the world he'd thought up. It was, however, entirely Neil Gaiman's idea to combine the two, and I am merely playing in his sandbox.
Webmistress's note: written before the airing of A Scandal in Belgravia

The Queen's Guard
Author: lavvyan
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock Holmes, John Watson, Irene Adler, James Moriarty
Rating: PG-13
Summary: In the caves of Afghanistan, John died once already. But in a world ruled by creatures more terrible than divine, death isn't always permanent, and when a half-human stranger stumbles into his life, John has to decide what he hates more: the Royal bloodline, or that peculiar heart which won't let him die...
Notes: I love summaries that end with dot dot dot. Dearest recipient, you asked for plot, crossovers, Neil Gaiman's A Study in Emerald, and said that sex wasn't a big deal. Here you go then: a plotty BBC/Study in Emerald crossover/fusion-type squinty-gen story. Hope you enjoy!

bending time with Death
Characters/Pairings:fem!John, Sherlock; gen
Rating:PG-13 to be safe
Warnings:possible butchering of both Lovecraft and Sherlock universes, and some disturbing (?) scenes
Summary: Once upon a time man's soul was very powerful, but then man made a pact with the Elder Gods, and in exchange for their protection, they gave up that power. Joan needs to recover that power if she wants to live, and Sherlock is more than who he seems to be."

Never Look Back by thedeadparrot
Fanfic of A Study in Emerald.
"Thus always to tyrants, then?" John says, inspecting the polished metal. Just yesterday, it had been smeared with blood and entrails, dripping a putrid, ugly green onto the floor. "I like it."

The Case of No. 118
by Grondfic
Raised from the dead by Dr Willett, the mysterious "No. 118" must rely on the good doctor to sift the evidence about the activities of Charles Dexter Ward, in order to ascertain his role in the horrifying occurrences in early twentieth century New England.


A Statement in the Ice
Author: meganphntmgrl
Lovecraft~Watchmen xover.
SUMMARY: Suppose Adrian Veidt came across the Necronomicon while buying some Egyptian artifacts for his collection. He starts reading. What follows is the inevitable slow descent into madness...

The Deadly Light
Author: anactoria
Lovecraft~Watchmen xover.
Fandom: Watchmen
Characters/Pairing: Various, mainly Adrian/Dan.
Rating: PG for this part, probably R-ish overall.
Summary: Lovecraft-inspired 1920s supernatural horror AU.
Notes: This story may contain: Eldritch Horrors, non-Euclidean love triangles, references to real historical events, wholesale abuse of that nebulous collection of names and ideas sometimes referred to as the Cthulhu Mythos, and quite possibly some smut. No Eldritch Horrors in the smut, though, I promise.
Thanks to flyingrat42 for all her beta help. :) Any remaining mistakes are, of course, my own.

The Cats of New York
Author: anactoria
Lovecraft~Watchmen xover.
Characters: Adrian, Adrian's secretary, Dan & Laurie (briefly), lots of cats.
Rating: PG
Summary: Bubastis is avenged, Lovecraft-style.
Notes: Will probably make no sense at all if you're unfamiliar with H. P. Lovecraft's The Cats of Ulthar.
Written for a kinkmeme prompt, though this differs slightly from the original. (I think, like so many of the best unspeakable horrors, they've just eaten his sanity.)

Bloodbath time
Lovecraft~Watchmen xover.
SUMMARY: The OT3 face evil mutant squid people in a post-GN AU

Squid/Cthulhu fluff
Lovecraft~Watchmen xover.
