Review:
She’s a rational person but there are a lot of things in the universe that Sam doesn’t want a scientific explanation for.

Despite the mess I felt the writers made of Sam’s character later on in the series, I’ll probably always have a soft spot for her and this fic is a good example of why. Delving into who she was and how she felt while growing up, I really enjoyed this look into her past and the idea that she always had a sense of wonder in the world around her within herself. Though I would have liked this to be a bit longer so we could have seen a bit of Janet and Sam’s relationship, it’s nonetheless a satisfying short for a character that I still miss seeing every week.

The $64 Question by bewize (PG-13)

Title: The $64 Question by bewize
Fandom: Clue
Pairing: Mr. Green/OMC
Categories: Angst, Drama, Hurt/Comfort, Romance, Established Relationship
Length: Medium (3,000+)
Warnings: Homophobia

Author on LJ: n/a

Author’s Summary: Mr. Green -- the man behind the mystery.

Review:
I never would have guessed that anyone could take a screwball comedy like ‘Clue’ and use it as a basis for such a serious fic as this one. It just doesn’t seem to fit; at least that’s what I would have thought before I read this. Told through a series of possible scenarios (just like in the movie), Mr. Green is transformed from just another part of the comic relief to a fully realized person, one who must hide who he truly is but also use it to his advantage (even if he doesn’t want to).

I really loved that the author took the time to include historical figures and tidbits and mold the entire story to fit around the movie. Which it does superbly, so much so that I’ll happily take this as my personal canon from Mr. Green from here on out and likely do a re-read the next time I watch the movie. All in all, if you’re a fan of the movie or just want to read a clever take on Mr. Green’s background, this is the fic to read.

Review:
Remus and Harry communicate best through letters.

One of the things that always really bothered me in the Harry Potter series was that Harry and Remus never seemed to get enough “screen time” together. At least not enough for me to believe that they had any sort of lasting bond between them, so I’ve always turned to fan fiction to fill that void for me. Told through a series of owl posts, this fic, though short, goes a long way towards doing just that.

Telling in both the things they write to each other and the things they don’t, I really enjoyed the way the author managed to convey so much about Harry, Remus, and their relationship with just a few letters. It made me wish that the entire back-and-forth between them had gone on a bit longer, if only so that they could bond a bit more. In the end, however, this fic was a wonderful read no matter the length and gives a nice glimpse into a relationship not really explored in the original series.

Review:
When they started this, there were very serious rules. No strings attached. Somewhere along the way, that was simply impossible.

Despite the inevitable angst that comes with storylines like this one, I found this fic to be a fun and non-demanding read. I loved Chloe’s self-imposed obliviousness to things sliding sideways in her “no strings attached” relationship with Oliver and how, when everything it put on the table, it doesn’t necessarily make things all right. Though some of the dialog does get a bit too saccharine for me at times, I’d still recommend it if you’re looking for something to put a smile on your face.
