Avengers: The Initiative is the creepiest book on the stands by mightygodking
"It's creepy because Dan Slott is a competent, intelligent comics writer, and therefore he writes the winning pro-registration faction exactly how they should be written: as authoritarian fascist fuckheads."

Firefly

Heroes
a really incredibly rough, non-illustrated timeline for Heroes 1x20 by mimesere
"I went with 2007 as a year because the bumper put the "Five Years Gone" in 2012. Specific dates where I have them, the dates around "Homecoming" are iffy, largely because I couldn't see the calendar in the background clearly and I haven't given this the thorough rewatch that I should and it's harder to tell what the subsequent dates are without those."

The Nurit-Hagar Wave Theory by hagar_972
"The Petrelli family are a good case study 'cause that's a lot of different powers packed into 2-3 generations. nurint and I tried to figure the number of genes (and loci) required to explain this family. This required figuring what each individual actually does on the mechanisms level."


Supernatural
Oh Dean by sharpest_rose

Pirates of the Caribbean: Sharp as a Two-Edged Sword by fabu
"Elizabeth is a satisfyingly complex character. She's a heroine who holds her own with the male characters and is often instrumental in rescuing them, but she's also less worldly than she realizes and more than a little arrogant."
