First off, hi! My name's Susan, I read a lot and write a little (bookturnedmind
respectively, and yes both Skulduggery Pleasant books have been reviewed. :D) and I bring both recs and a ficbit!
The rec is for the first fic ever written in this fandom (or at least, as far as I know): Dirty Work
(Set after the first book). It is awesome and hilarious and if it were any more IC it would be canon, trust me.
Advertising quote of doom behind the cut!: When Stephanie reached the Waxworks Museum she was out of breath from running, and Skulduggery was already there waiting for her, his skull hidden behind a scarf and sunglasses and a very large hat. He was standing in front of Ghastly's statue without a trace of urgency about him. "There you are," he said genially, and handed her a bucket.
Stephanie blinked and took it, wondering if it was some kind of
magic bucket, and had to take a moment to lean against the statue and catch her breath. "What is it? What's happened? Have you found a spell to fix him?"
Skulduggery tilted his head. "Whatever gave you that idea?"
Stephanie began to have a sort of sinking feeling in her stomach. She noted that the bucket contained soapy water and a sponge, and found herself hoping, a little pathetically, that maybe it was a
magic sponge, for fighting evil. "You rang me up and said, 'Stephanie, come quick, we've got to help Ghastly!'"
My own contribution isn't as fabulous as Baco's, but I'm posting it anyway!Title:
