As Time Goes By by Yahtzee

Take two great series, cross with one of the all-time classic films (Casablanca), add a seasoned writer and a bleak but believable background -- what's not to love? The characterization stays true to the series, even though the plot follows the film surprisingly closely. Yahtzee writes the AtS ensemble at least as well as the series writers do, and this is my very favourite of her output (AtS/BtVS/Casablanca)

Blood & Water by Rheanna

'Since when do we run the Undead Red Cross?' Deftly executed adventure set after 'To Shanshu in LA', which feels just like a bonus episode

[Added 15/01/2004; Drama; 20,000-50,000; Angel; Characters: Angel, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Cordelia Chase, Lindsey McDonald, Kate Lockley, Charles Gunn]

Captive of the Soul by Yahtzee

Among my favourites of Yahtzee's prolific 'Angel' output, set after 'To Shanshu in LA'

[Added 08/07/2004; Drama; 20,000-50,000; Angel; Characters: Angel, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Cordelia Chase, Kate Lockley, OC]

Vivere by Rheanna

One of the most interesting takes on Angel's shanshu that I've read. Rheanna's stories never fail to delight, and 'Vivere' is probably my favourite
