Why is the Buffy the Vampire Slayer in the description? It helps too understand the trope better, but that's the entire point of having examples listed below the description anyway.

I have a question on the fanfiction section of this page: shouldn't those entries go into Fanfic Recs? To me, it seems out of place.

No one is actually recomending those fics. Those are just examples of crossovers.

Then we'd be here all day or just link the Crossovers sections of Fanfiction.net and be done with it. It's become superfluous fluff, IMO.

I disagree. Fanfics are probably the single most popular genre of fiction to employ crossovers. Of all the folders on the page it easily contains the most elaborate uses of the trope.

That's not a valid counterpoint. My point is that there are so many it becomes almost a discredit to itself. Saying "It's popular" doesn't negate the fact that it's over-common, it reinforces it. I say we make a Fanfic Recs section just for crossovers and put a re-direct there. Saying there's a notable crossover fanfic is basically giving a fanfic rec. I see no difference between the two. You post it—you're recing it.
