Being an Account of a Journey to the strange new California Republic (and a most peculiar Hotel therein) by Sineala

  • Recommended by: Cameoflage
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A Fallen Londoner with rather debauched habits, who has managed thus far to avoid being killed and can therefore return to the Surface, is entrusted with the task of seeing a shipment of Mr Wines' wares safely to California. The final stop is the hotel that bears the Republic's name. However, the protagonist is warned against staying at the Hotel California, and with good reason.
  • Notes: Crossover with the song "Hotel California" by The Eagles. One-shot. Available in podfic format here, recorded by Culumacilinte.

broken crown by sharkie

  • Crossover: Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
  • Recommended by: smallturtle
  • Status: a sporadically updating series of complete, self-contained works
  • Synopsis: Consign me not to darkness. The course of English magic is once again irrevocably altered when London is dragged under the earth by capitalist giant space bats in 1862. Twenty-nine years later, a young Reader of the King's Letters pursues a descendant of the King's Book into New Newgate Prison...
  • Notes: Though a crossover, many of the works are Fallen London-exclusive. The series focuses on the Jovial Contrarian and an OC, the Despondent Correspondent. Sometimes it focuses on both at the same time.

Heroes and Devils by marinarusalka

  • Crossover: Marvel Comics
  • Recommended by: Progeny Ex Machina
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Three years after Dr. Doom cast the entire island of Manhattan into the dark depths of the Echo Bazaar, life goes on. The people of Lowered Manhattan, including the Avengers, have adapted as best they could to their shadowy new existence. But then the Avengers find themselves in possession of a mysterious locked box that could save them all — if it doesn't kill Tony first.

Fulgent Engineering by deepandlovelydark

  • Crossover: MacGyver (1985)
  • Recommended by: pointillist
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: MacGyver wanders a hundred years back in time, and ends up signing onto a zee-farer's ship as a mechanic. There, he takes the place of Sunless Sea's Tireless Mechanic, and starts trying to build the Fulgent Impeller. Fantastically characterized OCs round out the rest of the ship's crew.
  • Notes: nothing beside remains is a complete sequel of comparable length, branching off as a sort of AU. It's about MacGyver seeking Mr. Eaten's name. Yes, that MacGyver. Yes, that Mr. Eaten's name. No, I don't know why this Crack Fic premise works so well.
  • Notes: There are also a good handful of sequels and related works, some of which are random oneshots, some of which are crossovers with Stargate SG-1 or Doctor Who instead, and some of which are larger stories in various states of completion.

How well does it match the trope?
