Yuletide Recs: TV shows, Part 1

I'm only through D alphabetically and I have all of these recs! So I figured I'd better drop them off before digging back into the archive (gotta stay in the Top 15! LOL.)

Today's Adventure: Wrigley Versus Wrigley (The Adventures of Pete and Pete)
**I really enjoyed Little Pete's attempts to keep his brother from going to college - each scenario is goofier than the last.

Mm Mm (Animaniacs)
**Such a hilarious Warner Brothers fic! I absolutely adored the random humor, the shout-outs to actual episodes, and there are some great laugh-out-loud lines! :D

Sixty Years in a Water Tower (Animaniacs)
**I never thought to wonder what the Warner Siblings were up to during their long imprisonment... and this story is absolutely hilarious. It gave me giggle fits!

Tiger Beaten (Arrested Development)
**George Michael and Maeby and a boy band! I love Maeby's continued nonchalance and GM's denial of what is really going on. And all the other characters which make an appearance are just icing on the cake. :)

The Eggnog Equivalence (Big Bang Theory)
**The author's Penny and Sheldon are spot-on! I giggled more than once at Sheldon's turns of phrase. <3

The Failure of Einstein's Universe (Big Bang Theory)
**This was completely adorable! I really believed Penny/Sheldon here, and the scenario was so easy to imagine.

The Birthday Party (Black Adder)
**Even at twelve years old, Edmund is his wonderfully snarky self! Actually all of the characters are perfect, just a bit more adolescent. :)

Four Times Chuck Was a Hero by Being Nerdy (Chuck)
**Four vignettes, and each little vignette was awesome! It had everything I love about Chuck. Adored this. <3

A Meeting of Equals (Coupling UK)
**Ah, the author's Jane is perfect! I always loved her character (although it's hard to choose in that cast). Her flights of fancy tinged with selfishness are exactly right.

Routine and Reciprocity (Dead Like Me)
**Mason and Kiffany in what looks like only part one of a story - Mason was sweet and spot-on.

repeat after me (Dexter)
**I love this look into the mind of Harry, observing Dexter in a social situation. We get to see all of the reasons behind teaching him the Code, and how far he has progressed. It's really fascinating. Warning: Language

A MotherF***ing Roly-Ply Chubby-Cheeked S*** Machine (Dexter)
**This was great! I love the idea of Deb being involved in the birth of Rita and Dexter's baby! Her POV was perfect and adored all of the Debra-isms throughout. <3 Warning: Language

Action Figure (Some Parts Sold Separately) (Greatest American Hero)
**Sweet! What an adorable story! I loved Pam and Ralph's affection, Bill's crankiness, Bill and Pam's sniping at each other... and all the comics/superhero talk!

(And The Middleman fic is obviously out of order, but I had to read it right away...)

The Perilous Peanutbrittle Problem (Middleman)
**Lovely Wendy and Lacey fluff! I love how the author used Lacey's predilection for making messes to get the girls into a predicament! So cute. :)

The Ursine Therianthrope Divination (Middleman)
**What a long episodic joyride! The time jumping, the perfect date stamps, the characterization, really terrific work!

The Bellicose Doppelganger Auter-ization (Middleman)
**Very cute fic! And a completely hilarious premise to rescue Lacey. Clones, icy blondes... awesome.

Anyway, three people have guessed at which ones I wrote so far, and only one is close! I'd love to see if anyone can figure me out. :)

OMG George Michael/Maeby fic!

BRB, reading. And sending Michael Cera hate-waves until he agrees to do the movie. ;P

Is he really holding out? I thought that was just a joke made by Jason Bateman... But there is other AD fix to read this year, too. Enjoy!

Mitch Hurwitz says that eight of them are on board and Michael Cera has expressed disinterest, but there is still time to work it out so *crosses fingers*

Anyway thanks for the rec. It was awesome :D
