Armistice by Adina

'"If I might suggest, sir, I believe this would be more appropriate." This was a species of red vegetation that appeared in his hand as if by magic. It was rather larger and redder than was the Wooster wont, but I have never known Jeeves to err in matters sartorial.' The J&W world notoriously omits WWI; here Adina comes up with an ingenious solution that doesn't negate Wodehouse's choice. This vignette stands independently but is in the same universe as her better-known Green Ice, also worth a try. (Crossover with Dorothy L Sayers)

Deus Ex by innocentsmith

'The Author would like nothing better than to stretch out for a few paragraphs of tangy salt air, cheeky seabirds, and tourists looking dubiously at their white boating shoes and the baskets of shrimp on the pier.' Neat execution of a highly original concept: clever & unusual. Definitely worth a try despite a plethora of typos

[Added 04/08/2009; Drama; 2500-6000; Jeeves & Wooster; Characters: Reginald Jeeves, Cupid, Psyche; Crossover]

The Woosteriad by Silverr

'I noticed a very faint tremor go through Jeeves' manufactured frame at the sight of Melon, and he irised down his visual receptors in a way that made me a tad envious: still, one must stand by one's friends, no matter how radioactive they may appear to be.' Bertie has a more-than-usually off-the-wall adventure, courtesy of some figures from Greek mythology. Not the best Wodehouse pastiche, perhaps, but worth a try for the robotic Jeeves alone (Jeeves & Wooster/Greek myth)

[Added 27/05/2012; Humour; 6000-20,000; Jeeves & Wooster; Characters: Bertram Wooster, Reginald Jeeves, Iphigenia, Artemis, Agamemnon, Achilles (Greek myth), Nancy (Hark! A Vagrant), original characters; Crossover]
