Rating/Warning(s): General Audience, no warnings apply
Word Count/WIP?: 6,420. Complete.
Recced By: shallowness

Why This Must Be Read: It's season 1 Christmas fluff, featuring the ensemble. I laughed a lot (especially at Scully and Hitchcock) as the precinct celebrates Christmas and Jake and Amy flirt in their own special way.

I've been meaning to rec these fics for a long time, so I'm just going to do a massive fic dump in one post.

Fandom Category: The Amazing Spiderman (2012)
Pairing: Gwen Stacy/Peter Parker
Fic Title: promise not to promise anymore
Author: ProfessorSpork
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/486601
Rating/Warning(s): teen and up
Genre: post-movie
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: A wonderful look at what was going on with Gwen at the end of the film, capturing all the emotion we didn't have time to see. From grief to anger to need to forgiveness, this is a great fic about Gwen and her struggle and confusion over Peter's decision.

Fandom Category: Inception/Harry Potter (infusion)
Pairing: Ariadne/Arthur
Fic Title: Further Studies in Impossibility
Author: metonymy
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/228321
Rating/Warning(s): Teen and up
Genre: fusion crossover
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: When I first read the idea, I was entirely dubious. But this is a surprisingly well written fusion where Ariadne is actually a witch in Harry Potter's world, and how she comes into Cobb's Inception world with that history. Her relationships and viewpoints are tainted by her experiences, and the muggle world is suddenly just as complicated as her wizarding world. Very well written.

Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: Time Travel!AU, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Peggy and Steve's doomed romance in the movies just breaks my heart, so I love seeing them get a second chance in fic. This story features what might be my favorite Peggy/Steve reunion ever, ever, EVER. Seriously, ALL THE TEARS. And it's only one part of a series called interesting landings so you can get more of Peggy and Steve's story, if you so please.

(Don't worry, all those anime pairings have been listed in accordance with the new policy on anime pairing tags.)

Day 19 - An angsty fic.

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Lily Evans/James Potter
Fic Title: When Saints Die, The World Stops Spinning
Author: forsakenphoenix
Link: http://www.harrypotterfanfiction.com/viewstory.php?psid=104085
Rating/Warning(s): 15+. Canon character death.
Genre: Angst, Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Hope, loyalty, love, despair, and tragedy. Through it all, Lily discovers the truth about the Marauders, the affable troublemakers who hide behind smokescreens but still glitter in shattered light. They aren't the glorious, graceful men they are often perceived as, but stumbling, awkward boys who are still trying to find their way out of darkness.

Instead of stumbling around and babbling incoherently, I'm going to leave you with one of the reviews to the story:
it's just... you write them as imperfect and special and lily as something binding and whole that comforts as well as seeking comfort. its the world and the people in it explained in four different people. the broken the beaten the bruised. all of those who help yet find it hard to seek help. the destructive and the mending, the hurt and the whole. people who remain faceless and in shadows when compared to those that seem naturally attractive to us. the mothers, the fathers, the broken children. all of it.

i cry at the start at how sad it all is, i keep crying. i cry at the end because of the injustice and lies. yet i'm not depressed because i know that the truth helps. that the people so broken found what they needed - even if it was evil and cruel - because its how it is supposed to be.

Fic Title: as the moon was rising in your eyes

Rating/Warning(s): T / spoilers for Deathly Hallows
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Luna and Harry's relationship is just so unique, she understands him in a way that no one else in the books really does. It's bittersweet and reminds me of why I fell in love with this pairing in the first place.

He thinks his dreams would be mundane if she didn't waltz through them. Then they would be about war and blood and death and so much death and trivial, monotonous things like that. These days in his dreams he believes in magic.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] zauberer_sirin

Rating/Warning(s): PG-ish / underage
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: He's the boy who psychologically tortured her for a year, and she's the girl who ends up marrying the hero; it's hard for a pairing to have more baggage than that. But I can't help but love Tom and Ginny in all their fucked-up glory. As the author demonstrates beautifully in this piece Ginny will always be haunted by the diary and will never really escape Tom.

It's just a name just a name just a name she repeats but of course it's not. No name is just a name. (Tom taught you that.) And this name is less of a just a name than any other Ginny has ever heard.

Rating/Warning(s): R / sex
Genre: Romance, Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Of all the sex scenes I've read in fandom this piece is one of the most memorable. The way the author uses colors to show the progression of Remus and Tonks's relationship really works. A beautiful story that really showcases this pairing in all its facets.

He told her she was beautiful. She traced the scars on his back with her fingers as she came. She couldn’t see how her hair changed colour when she lost control. It came and went with every time they were together.

Two Harry/Luna fics )

Why This Must Be Read: These are two old, whimsical one-shots with a fairytale feel to them. They use the figures of hero and villain wonderfully, getting to the core Harry's character. Not particularly centred in the romance, but you can feel Luna's love and admiration for Harry in them. Both authors manage to capture Luna's voice, which isn't easy to do.


Pairing: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione
Fic Title: Ginderella
Author: Majick
Link: http://www.phoenixsong.net/fanfiction/story/1905/ ;
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: humour, romance, very strange AU
WIP?: two-shot
Why This Must Be Read: I'll just leave you with the summary. Poor Ginny Snape. Quite apart from having the daftest name in the history of the world, she's got a cruel step-father, two evil stepsisters and a bad case of unrequited love for Harry Potter, The Prince Who Lived.
Even worse, she's still got her Potions essay to write, and it's already twenty-five past thirty-two in the Hogwarts kitchens. Oh, yeah, and she's just been assigned the two most incompetent fairy godmothers in the history of the profession, at least one of whom is more concerned with political correctness than actually getting the job done and bringing about the bliss that is Twue Wuv.
Killer high heels! The curse of the toad! A thousand elephants! All this and much, much more, once upon a time...


This fic is certainly weird, but it has the right mix of canon and randomness and it's funny and adorable at the same time.

Fandom Category:  Sherlock (BBC)

Fic Title:  The Full House
Author:  Emcee
Link:  here
Rating/Warning(s):  PG-13.  SPOILERS for The Reichenbach Fall.
Genre:  Drama, Romance, Action
WIP?:  No

Why This Must Be Read:  Fantastic take on the series post-Reichenbach, directly following Sherlock's fake suicide.  Sherlock decides the safest place for him to stay is Molly's flat and living in close quarters with her brings all types of feelings and frustrations to the surface.  Plus, an excellently-written Irene Adler drops in and flirts teasingly with both Sherlock and Molly!  A great read.

Rating/Warning(s): M/R - warning! abusive!Durselys and manipulative!Dumbledore (mostly)

Special Rec #: 48

Why This Must Be Read: After the dramatic and tragic events of Harry's fifth year, his trust in the system is at an all time low. With some insight from a new friend, he realizes he has to change the way he's been handling things. He also moves Dumbledore to his "not-to-be-trusted" list. This year, the DA gets ready for war. This was the first fic that really explored some of the same thoughts tumbling in my head over the less-than-stellar work being done by the adults at Hogwarts. Why was everything being done by a kid? Definitely worth your time.

Pairing: Lily Evans/Severus Snape
Fic Title: Come Once Again and Love Me
Author: laventadorn
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7670834/1/bCome_b_Once_bAgain_b_and_bLove_b_bMe_b
Rating/Warning(s): violence, language, mention of character death
Genre: Drama, angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is the 2nd chance story, after Severus dies in Deathly Hollows, that I never knew I wanted until I found it. The summary is this: Severus wakes up in the afterlife expecting something rather different than being almost-seventeen again. Seriously, what kind of game is this? But wait - Lily's come back, too - from 1981? Perhaps it's a second chance... but to do what?

Severus wakes up seventeen again but is still truly the Severus that's lived a hard, hard 38 years before his death. He's dark, angry, and bitter. So you have Sev back and Lily who's just died in '81 and hasn't seen Severus in years and is dealing with the emotional fallout of having just lost her husband and her son. And here's a Lily that isn't too stupid to live, who slowly starts to realize her own faults, comes to terms with how she could fall for someone who'd treated her best friend so abhorrently, and then finally dealing with the loss of Harry. I could go on and on even more. It's the grown up version of a second chance story for both Lily and Severus. This fic doesn't pull many punches and the author creates a world that grips you and keeps you enthralled to the very end.

Fic Title: there is a light that never goes out
Author: Snapdragons
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG, Mild Language, Sensitive Topic/Issue/Theme
Genre: Drama, Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This story sums up what I love about the Lily/Sev pairing. It never really happened and so there's this unfinished business between them. Snapdragons gives us at least something that closes it, that could've happened in canon and she does it beautifully. The description she uses for these two makes me weep.

Pairing: Hermione Granger/Harry Potter
Fic Title: Sunset Over Britain
Author: Bobmin
Link: http://bobmin.fanficauthors.net/Sunset_Over_Britain/index/
Rating/Warning(s): Mature - Adult situations, sex, death
Genre: Drama/Romance/Action/Adventure
WIP?: No, and neither is the sequel!

Why This Must Be Read: This is an epic length fic! To be precise, it has 378,513 words. (The sequel has 648,987!) Canon exists up until the end of 5th year, and then everything is free game. This becomes a bit of a Super!Harry fic, but it is done in a captivating way. At the end of Harry's 5th year, his life is in shambles. Things aren't going to get much better. He learns even more secrets and finds that trust should never be given easily. Families break apart, friendships become strained, allies become enemies, old enemies become allies, and the world begins to burn.
