[personal profile] zana16
One of the panels at Close Quarters was a discussion of our favorite (and/or) desert island fic/zine/episode of Pros; ie what we would take if we knew we would be stranded on a desert island with a solar-paneled dvd player. Some of the novel-length fic made it into both categories, by the way. Most but not all of this is online, but I'm not up to doing links. The Circuit Archive and The Hatstand have the ones that are online. Note: This is not a list of my recs, but CQ's collective recs. There are one or two on here that I hated, though for the most part those on the list that I've read, I've really loved.

My choices
Episode: Hunter/Hunted, for the "You'll save me" scene, Doyle jumping the rail, and the scene in the car with Kathy
Zine: Catch a Fallen Star, which also goes on my top ten fanfics of all times and fandoms.
Fic: Sebastian's Wonderful Tonight. Someday I will write my manifesto on why this is the perfect fanfic. Or at least the perfect Professionals fanfic, as it probably wouldn't be as good without canon knowledge.
