Rec: Snark and Explosives by TigerKat and The Secret of the Mysterious Coat by Scarlettgirl

Today is crossover crack ficlet day!  Because they're both so very short, I'm giving you two recs for your reading delight.  (Mod, if that's not OK, I'm sorry!)

Snark and Explosives
Author:  TigerKat
Rating:  Teen
Word Count:  366
Author's Summary:  Ace McShane and Jayne Cobb. Ain't life nice? Crossover with Firefly.
Characters/Pairings:  Ace/Jayne. 
Warnings: Sexual themes? Also crack.

Recced because:
Ace/Jayne  (Can we call it Jayce?)  may be the best crossover crack pairing ever.  The author puts a lot of character, laughs, and explosions into very few words.  Shiny!

Story:  The Secret of the Mysterious Coat
Author: scarlettgirl
Rating: None given. I'd say Teen, less for actual content than because if you show it to your ten year-old cousin her brain may explode.
Word Count:  616
Author's Summary:  There is a strange disturbance in the universe. Can Nancy and her gal pals, George and Bess, get to the bottom of this strange mystery? A totally crack!fic Torchwood/Nancy Drew crossover.
Characters/Pairings:  Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, plus the Nancy Drew crew:  Nancy, George, Bess, and their associated boys.
Warnings:  Possible corruption of childhood memories through innuendo.

Recced because:  If you, like me, read dozens of Nancy Drew novels as a child, you may be sent into helpless giggles at the mere concept of a Torchwood/Nancy Drew crossover.  Even if you only read one or two Nancy books and barely remember them, you should still enjoy this wonderfully silly story.  The author does a fine job of mocking the characters and writing style from Nancy Drew, but in a loving sort of way.  (Since Jack is around, it's a very loving sort of way. *wink*)

“The information you require Miss Drew, is in my private office. This way, please.”

Nancy was many things: resourceful, quick-thinking and even spunky. She knew what the challenge in Jack Harkness’s eyes meant.
