John Constantine: Hellblazer
|||||Mister Monster - "Transylvania Mania"||]|
Rec something, the more hard to find the better
I'll start; Something hard would be the ones on the small sites out there, especially mixed with none Hellblazer fics, such as this site:
*Fonts of Wisdom
- Veritas by 'rith (kerithwyn)
Zatanna muses on her relationship with John Constantine.
-- double drabble, it's like...a taste of a feeling.
- May 10, 1976 by A. C. Chapin
John Constantine's 23rd birthday party presages much of his later checkered career...
-- I liked it lots, there are references to characters in another universe, but you don't have to know them for this short story to make sense, they are just there like easter eggs.
- Deck The Halls by Dex
John Constantine meets Santa Claus -- sorta.
-- This has a rather Garth Ennis feel to it; nasty bits of humanity ahead.
- Paying For It by Dex
A Christmas story, about magic, belief, tricks, dreams and John Constantine.
-- The format is an OC telling John about what she did, it reads like the comic, one of those arcs that is more reflection than action, a downtime between the battles. I like this line; "summoning demons for power is about as brill as dumping a radio in the bath for music. "
- Bad Craziness by David Hearne
In Las Vegas the Pyramid's fountain starts spouting blood, drawing both John Constantine and a familiar pair of FBI agents to investigate.
-- A crossover story where the mood of X-Files and Hellblazer matches, dark humour and curious, vulnerable humanity, told through the alternating narratives of John, Mulder, and Scully.
Then there is
*Yuletide - Hellblazer (comic entries)
Now links to fics that most of you have probably read or heard of already:
- Hellblazer: Hogswarts by Camwyn
Sometimes, life bashes you upside the head with a brick in a sock. Hogwarts is about to get its latest Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, a man cast adrift from his native world- a man named John Constantine.
-- Warning: This is a wonderful, wonderful, unfinished fic with 10 chapters, and it's been unfinished since 2006. There wasn't any huge life and death cliffhanger, but well, stopping there is unsatisfying anyways. Written from John's view of the mad universe he's been dropped into.
- The Laughing Professor by captain_emily
-- stand-alone HB/HP crossover, HP universe's POV of John.
- Sailor Hellblazer
-- haven't read it yet, maybe I'm saving it up for a rainy day, but basically, Genma was supposed to be the new sailor soldier, but her Uncle Johnny took the fall for her.
- Prop me Up Beside The Jukebox If I Die by Tenshi-san, drabble, what it says on the tin.
- Santa's Little Helpers by Smitty, hosted at Firelord's DC Fanfiction...still reading this, found this via googling john constantine and tantric...
- Nothing Constant by sam_storyteller
Fandoms: Lovejoy (by Jonathan Gash), Hellblazer (featuring John Constantine), Lord Peter Wimsey (by Dorothy L Sayers)
Summary: Lovejoy has never met an antique human being before, but John Constantine has bigger worries on his mind than what one divvy thinks. Lord Death Bredon Wimsey has a book he wants, but that poor antique book is only the beginning of the trouble for the three men caught in its grip.
-- Warning: Incomplete and abandoned.
