Rating/Warning(s): M (adult content/language), spoilers through S7.
Genre: drama, comedy, romance, AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's four "Five Things" ficlets, all in one convenient location. And they're by an author who astounds me every single time with her ability to master small details and pack all of a character's senses into one single punch. This is a post season 7 AU that explores a Jack and Renee relationship in realistic and well-characterized beauty. The mini collection is delightful and angsty and sexy and all things at once.

Rating/Warning(s):R; sex, violence, language, references to physical and sexual abuse, spoilers for the entire series
Genre: Drama/Romance/Action
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: In short? Imagine a story whose writer is as good at writing as the artist ([livejournal.com profile] dealan311) is at art. More specifically? It's an epic and brave exploration of these characters post-series. After all the things that were taken from Jack over the years, this fic gives him back one, and in such a quiet, beautiful way. There's angst, love, action, awesome plot and a caliber of writing that you don't often get for free.

Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Crossover, oneshot
WIP?: No.
Why This Must Be Read: Aside from pairing up two of the greatest badasses of the last decade? It's how perfectly you can see this happening for both canons. The CIA would totally send Syd in for Jack, and Jack would be in that sort of danger.

Fic Title: Water's Edge
Author: [livejournal.com profile] leigh57
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/24_fanfic/327504.html
Rating/Warning(s): R-ish? Because of graphic, vivid memories of rape, without any sugarcoating at all.
Genre: Episode-related, hurt/comfort
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I cannot believe I never recced this fic here before. I thought I had, and when I realized I hadn't, I immediately went to fix that. Season eight of 24 was riddled with a lot of horrible writing, and one of the biggest horrors was the events of 8.07, where something rather horrifying happened to Renee Walker and the fallout of that was, at best, brushed aside because of the nature of 24's writing and timeline. Please read the author's warnings and take them seriously, and I am normally one that doesn't touch a fic written about the repercussions of rape with a ten foot pole, but this one - oh, it's written gorgeously.

This is wonderfully written. Great prose and wonderful insight into Jack and Renee. The author has got the post-8.07 mood down so perfectly, and ouch. It hurts. It really, really does. But there's also a glimpse of healing in the pain, one that canon never provided us. She did such a great job exposing Renee's emotions and having her deal with the issues, as well as crafting a lovely piece on the nature of her relationship with Jack.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 sex
Genre: Romance, angst
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: First, because the language is lovely, lyrical, and gorgeous, and Jack and Renee are so in character it hurts. Second, because all Jack/Renee shippers need a happy place in which the end of 8x17 never happened.

Rating/Warning(s): Hard R? There's some sex.
Genre: Romance, angst
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This story combines Jack and Renee with Christmas, so what's not to love? But it's also a beautiful AU where there's still hope, and it includes some wonderful interaction between Jack and his family.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] paladin24

Rating/Warning(s): Adult, for sexual content and spoilers for events from 8x17.
Genre: Episode Related, Drama
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I can't really say much without mentioning a major spoiler for 8.17, so I'll keep this brief. This fic is gloriously written, with such an intense and authentic Jack POV that I'm kinda left breathless at the end of it. It's the best 8.17-related fic I've read to date, and I doubt anyone can do it better.

This is the real Jack, and... damn.

Rating/Warning(s): T, for language and vague sexual situations
Genre: AU, now that S8 has started
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: The summary says this: 100 things that could have happened to Jack and Renee, and I can't think of a better way to describe it except to say that it's a 100 awesome, in-character, brilliant moments in their lives. This begins S7, and jumps off from that point. It's wonderful, gorgeous, and about a dozen other words for just, yeah, greatness. I love the short snippets she shows that tell so much more than what's written. The author has a grasp of their characters that's perfect, because they're as hardcore as you expect, but still very vulnerable. Though S8 has gone a different route, this is equally plausible for Renee/Jack.
