Series: Part 4 of Dangerous Instruments
Steve Rogers, former captain of the HMAS America, had been a rising star of the Royal Aerial Fleet until his airship was destroyed. He was pulled from the wreckage, the only survivor, and spent several weeks unconscious in a hospital bed while the world, and the Fleet, moved on without him. Now, he needs a new plan and a new career, both of which Nick Fury is willing to offer as part of his special SHIELD unit inside Scotland Yard.
But while Steve waits to begin his training, Fury has a small mystery he needs some help with. A masked man has been roaming the towns and villages in the south of England, stealing food and breaking into trains and museums without taking anything of value. A man with a metal arm. It's Steve's home ground, the place he grew up in, so he's the perfect choice to investigate Fury's problem. Isn't he?
(Prequel fic, but can be read as a stand-alone.)
... just me, huh?
So, yeah, I took the trash out last night before I went to bed. Garrus and Tali apparently decided that meant the empty trash can was fair play, and they someone managed to turn it over on top of Garrus. Who then started running in the wall, repeatedly, in an attempt to knock it off of him.
Tali? Perfectly named. Every now and then, though, I seriously wonder if I should have gone with "Grunt" instead of "Garrus".
You've signed up to write for one of my beloved teeny fandoms so that already makes me adore you and utter little squeaky happy noises :-D Thank you!
I'm not hard to please, I don't think. A lot of my fandoms are femslashy this year, but if F/F isn't your thing, I'm a huge fan of female friendships and fics focusing on those. Honestly, apart from one exception that will be pretty obvious, don't feel obligated to throw in femslash just to please me unless it's something you also feel for those characters. And if you do, then go to town on it :-D

Darcy had no intention of falling for an Asgardian. Nope, definitely not. No Asgardians needed in her life.
If only fate listened to those kinds of intentions.

Disclaimer: The only thing that belongs to me is the editing.
First things first: if you really don't like camp, you probably shouldn't watch Xena. You could maybe try my Top 5, but it probably just won't be for you.
On the other hand, if you loooooove camp but don't want to commit to the longest curriculum, feel free to comment and I can write up another list of favorite funny/campy episodes. My orientation is more toward a few of the dramatic plot arcs, Gabrielle's pacifism arc, and Xena/Gabrielle. Obviously this is a YMMV situation.
Also -- some of you probably know Xena better than me! If you see any lapses in good judgement, please let me know and if I agree I'll change it!
I've included content notes of a kind for some of these -- please feel free to ask for more details about specific episodes:
*r: racism of some sort. Included in this is depictions of groups coded as "primitive" or indigenous, generally played by a mix of indigenous, non-indigenous POC, and white actors -- however, this applies to any episode that the Amazons appear in, and I haven't noted it for all of those episodes, only the ones where I find it most egregious. I also note *r for orientalization of Middle Eastern or Asian characters.
However, it is common for Xena to disproportionately cast Maori actors to play "dumb" villains of the week (as opposed to epic antagonists like Caesar or Ares). I haven't noted this as it is very common and I haven't watched all of these episodes recently.
*dv: partner violence
*c: episodes that are particularly campy *and* not essential to an ongoing plot or character arc.
( Lowest commitment: Top 5 episodes for non (or not-yet)-fans )
( Low commitment: the highlights )
( Higher commitment: most of the important plot and character arcs, as well as the best stand-alone episodes )
( High commitment: all the major plotlines and character arcs; I've just removed what I consider the worst episodes. )
