Really good crossover between BattleTech and the 2003 Battlestar Galactica by evilauthor.

140k words and counting, often with multiple updates per day. Hit the Reader Mode button if you just want the story, none of the discussion.

Holy crap, that's high word count!  I thought 2ndAcr's The Quest at 14k pages was up there.

well, he bypassed mine in sheer scope and scale, anyway.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty,
the tranquility of servitude
better than the animating contest of freedom,
go home from us in peace.
We ask not your counsels or your arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you,
and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-Samuel Adams

Yeah, I have to recommend Fighting Uphill, the latest chapter just did a great setup of future conflicts and well, it has a great AU twist to canon events.
