They're Us by Goldenbrook15 - A Justice League/Young Justice crossover. A funny concept treated more or less seriously, in which the Young Justice team fall into the Justice League universe. What with various misunderstandings, the JL mistake the team for their younger selves and are horrified at what their world must be like to have forced them to form so early. Incomplete.
Fixations by Mathismagic - Another Justice League/Young Justice crossover. Very heartwarming. Here, the JL Wally is the YJ Wally who was transported by the speed force into another dimension and became that dimension's Flash. Both teams' relationships with their speedster are examined. Complete.
Brave New World by dyaoka - Damian Wayne falls into the YJ world. Complete.
Collide and the sequel Convergence by LaLaCat1 - Jason Todd falls into the YJ world and just can't deal with a Dick Grayson who's now thirteen and a Batman who's actually good at expressing feelings.
Luthor Family Values by nev_longbottom - More a fusion than a true crossover. In which Luthor (Smallville's Luthor) finds out that his father has created him a clone that has fallen into the hands of the Justice League and sues for custody.
New Kid on the Block by itsxandy - Wherein Wally's transformation into a speedster isn't immediately discovered and he becomes Central City's best thief. Very interesting fic, at times very funny, but also comes with a large dose of angst. This Wally is decidely less hopeful and a lot more cynical than canon, though he never quite loses his heart of gold. Incomplete.
Somehow I'm the Mother of the Year by Katty008 - Talia rejects her father's plans and marries Bruce Wayne, ensuring that Dick is going to have a very... interesting mother figure. Hilarious and heart-warming, just what you need for some feels. Single chapter, complete.
Caged Bird by velkynkarma - Dick Grayson isn't adopted by Bruce Wayne and grows up on the streets of Gotham. Really interesting to see how Dick's relationships/attitudes change accordingly. Written in response to a kink meme, so the formatting's a little odd. Complete.
Blondes Really Do Have More Fun by anonymous - The YJ team are transformed into the opposite gender. Most of them are horrified, at least one is indifferent, and one finds something they didn't know they were looking for. Not a comedy fic, whatever the title suggests. The real tragedy is the character's inability to recognise or articulate what they're feeling, when we as readers can see it as plain as day. Complete (or at least stops in a place that could be considered complete...?)
Kryptonian soul-bonding by anonymous - Based on the concept introduced in the classic fic Biopsychology that Kryptonians telepathically link to loved ones, but humans can't reciprocate properly. The author uses it to simultantously explain a lot of Superman's behaviour toward Superboy and explore the idea of alien psychology trying to function within human ways of thinking. Complete.
A silent ringing in your skull by radioactivepiss - The same concept as above, just shorter. Complete.
Contact by anonymous - Another kink-meme fill. Robin reads some research about the need for positive physical contact for healthy childhood devleopment, and the team decides to hug Superboy because he is technically a few months old. Very cute and heart-warming. Complete.
Kid Stuff by calenchamien - Superboy is deaged and, without any other babysitters available, given over to Superman's reluctant care. There's several fics out there with this concept, but this is my favourite because it doesn't dismiss Superman's feelings in the matter. He might not be reacting like a saint to Superboy's existance, but there are good solid reasons for him to feel ambiguous about his clone and the steps in their relationship are all the more gratifying for it.
