MFU Illya Fanfic

Another fandom meme

Half-inched from draycevixen.

Post a link/links to at least one piece of fan fiction that you think is excellent in some way, even though it's not your fandom and/or ship and/or belongs to a genre or kink that's not usually your thing.

Hopefully your friends will do the same and so perpetuate the meme.

All righty! *rubs hands together* Once upon a time I used to read a lot in the Hercules: The Legendary Journeys fandom and this was my favourite fic of all. It's a long, rambly, enjoyable gen/het romp through New Greeceland as seen through the eyes of Buffy. Yeah, that Buffy, the one with the thing against vampires. This is the first (and only) Buffy fic I've ever read, proving that a canonical knowledge of the show really isn't necessary.

The author's summary reads: Buffy, Xander, Giles and Willow are accidentally sent through a dimensional doorway to a strange new world, where they run into our favorite pair of mythological heroes, Hercules and Iolaus. Together, they uncover Ethan Rayne's terrible plot against this world. Jason, Autolycus, Xena and Gabrielle are also major characters.
Yes, we know what you're thinking, but it works! Come on, give it a try! You know you want to. Everyone has doubts at first.

You can find it here. It's long, at over 600kb (broken into chapters) so grab the popcorn and brew the coffee before you click. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
