People! Are writing awesome stuff! On the internet!
Linkdrop the first: to prove that you can make fanfic off of anything (and really f!ing amazing fanfic, too), I give you Goodnight Room, based on the ubiquitous children's bedtime story Goodnight Moon.
Linkdrop the thirdsixth: Velveteen vs. the Ordinary Day, by Seanan McGuire. Watchmen meets the Incredibles meets... well, Seanan McGuire. (If you like that one, there are apparently many more Velveteen stories here, which I will set to devouring as soon as I finish this post.)
