Why This Must Be Read: This is a scorchingly hot V. Mars fic, taking place after the season 2 finale - it's actually the last of three linked stories in different fandoms, but I read "Demolition" as a standalone first and didn't even notice, so no need to read the other chapters unless you feel like it. When I think of this story, I have such strong images - of Logan in thick protective gloves, demolishing his father's mansion, of Logan and Veronica out by the pool under the sun making out - it gorgeously captures a specific feeling and mood of the downtime these two characters must have needed and craved after everything they went through on the show.

Fic Title: Like a Knife Cuts It Clean

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, angst, roadtrip!
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I love post-series fic that works to give us an ending to the show that the WB/CW never gave Veronica Mars, and this one is a masterful one that has Veronica and Logan working at being friends and working through their issues as they take a summer road trip together across the United States. The author really delves into their emotional baggage (individual and relationship-related) and it all comes to a really satisfying conclusion.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica/Logan
Fic Title: Everything Hits at Once
Author: annie_oakley
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Angst, mystery, romance (it's epic!)
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This story starts with a future Logan and Veronica, faced with solving a crime that hits very close to home. As the mystery unfolds, we also get a number of flashbacks that show us how Veronica and Logan got here, as well as where all of our favorite secondary characters have been. The mystery is really well-crafted and will keep you guessing until the end.

Fandom Category: The Hunger Games
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Fic Title: I Do
Author: HalfHope
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Action, angst, romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This story is an AU that asks what would have happened if the Quarter Quell didn't occur and Peeta and Katniss had to go through with their wedding? Would it still all be an act? What's interesting about this fic is how much their story still gels with canon, despite the fact that it's technically AU. This will definitely help hold you over until the first movie comes out. (March 2012!)

Fandom Category: The Office
Pairing: Pam/Jim
Fic Title: The Love Song of Squirrel McPants
Author: time4moxie
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance, angst, humor
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: After Jim returns to Scranton from Stamford, he secretly joins a chat room to meet up with Pam (unbeknownst to her) and find out how she really feels about him. The problem is, once he knows, how will Pam feel about his deception? The banter here betwen Jim and Pam, the other Dunder-Miffinites, and the OCs is just perfect. This is a really fun read--I promise you'll laugh out loud a few times.

Its funny, sexy, at times heartwarming, believe it or not.

Fic Title: In a Hand-basket
Author: elerimc
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): M, Violence, Major Character Death, Language, Non-Explicit Sexual Situations, Torture
Genre: Crossover, Drama, Apocalypse
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:  A crossover that is well done is a treasure to read, and this story is a absolute gem.  The author blends the two worlds seamlessly together.  A year has passed since the end of the world, when Dean and Veronica meet.  Dean is on a quest to find his brother and Veronica is just trying to stay alive.  They decide to help each other with these goals.  Why I liked this story:  The author does not pull any punches with this story, there is such a sense of realism in the description of the world after the apocalypse.  Also the interaction between Dean and Veronica is really well done, the friendship that develops is pure gold.  The story is so gripping that when it ends all you want is more.  Thankfully the author plans to write a sequel.  I highly recommend this story.   Enjoy!  :)

Why This Must Be Read: 

Amazing story! It's five years after graduation and Logan comes back to ask Veronica for help. It's an AU after 2.22. And it's spectacular! The characters are real and incredibly well written. You feel for them, you really do. And their love, God, the way they painfully love each other...Truly amazing.

Rating/Warning(s): T-M, Language, sexual situations, a rather big age gap between the characters
Genre: Romance, humor
WIP?: No, three stories
Special rec: 3/31
Author’s Summary: A crossover series with 21 Jump Street. Will life on Neptune help Tom Hanson escape the past?

Why This Must Be Read: Because yes, you read that right. Veronica Mars and Tom Hanson from 21 Jump Street. Tom owns a bowling alley and Veronica is in college. They are snarky, they are sexy and they are smart. The dialogue is fast and fun and there are some really thoughtful character insights that ring very true to both characters. And besides, didn’t you always wonder what happened to Tom?

The first link is more of a setting-things-up kind of chapter, the second link brings in Veronica.

P.S. While you're there, read everything else this author has written, including the Veronica Mars/James Bond crossover. You will not be disappointed!

Pairing: Hermione Granger/Dean Winchester, Ginevra Weasley/Sam Winchester, Faith Lehane/Xander Harris
Fic Title: Cracked Stars Shining series
Author: Azipherin, Author at Ao3
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/21206?view_full_work=true
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, explicit sex, violence, language, mentions of rape
Genre: Romance, drama, angst, action/adventure, supernatural, mystery
WIP?: Yes, but don’t let that stop you! It’s already reached epic proportions.
Special rec: 2/31
Author’s Summary: For some, the war is over; others are still living battle to battle. New York is a good place to lie low for a while, but no one can hide forever.

Why This Must Be Read: What’s better than a fic that has Hermione Granger paired up with Dean Winchester? A fic that has Hermione Granger paired up with Dean Winchester while living in New York where she works at a supernatural bar run and owned by Xander Harris. Any description I give here isn’t going to do this story justice. It is everything I ever wanted out of Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural. The characters are intelligent, strong, sensual and the story draws on all the various myths of each fandom. Not to mention New York itself being a bit of its own character. Oh, and did I mention the incredibly well-written sex? Settle in a for a long, fullfilling, sexy read. Don’t forget to check out the Ginny/Sam stories as well! It’s become my personal canon.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: Molasses and Taffy
Author: [livejournal.com profile] wily_one24
Link: link to part 1 (subsequent chapters are linked at the end of each chapter, 14 in total, plus an epilogue)
Rating/Warning(s): rated from PG-13 to R (subject matter), depending on the chapter; warnings for angst and anger and a pretty intense discussion of rape
Genre: did I mention angst?
WIP?: nope, it's all finished

Why This Must Be Read:
Oh. My. God. This fic is amazing. The entire thing (except for the epilogue), 80+K words overall, takes place between the rooftop and Veronica waiting at the airport in 2.22 ("Not Pictured"). Just about every question I had (and some I didn't even know about) but that were never answered when season 3 started are answered in this heartbreaking, but ultimately true to the world of Veronica Mars fic.

I started reading this yesterday and I could not put it down. Erm, I mean, I could not make myself close my browser. All the major players are in it and we get a shifting POV from Veronica to Logan to Keith from chapter to chapter. Which you'd think would be repetitive, but really, it so isn't. Nothing is white-washed; this fic is occasionally brutal. I'm going to be thinking about this one for a long, long time.

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, the summary reads "Ten years clean of Neptune living, Logan's past finds him in an all-night grocery store," but that's only a teaser. This fic is a second-chance story that has all the elements everyone loves about the show-that-was: humor, romance, snappy dialogue, and tender moments. Also, there are bonus FBI crossover character(s) you'll have to read to find. Sold you yet? :)

For challenge 56: TV Shows That Were Canceled Too Soon

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls  and Meg/Duncan with a secondary Veronica/Duncan
Fic Title: La Doleur Exquise
Author: [profile] shangri__la
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/veronicamarsfic/658700.html

Rating/Warning(s): R, Spoilers only up to "One Angry Veronica." However, this story takes place after "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner".
Genre: Angst, Romance, Drama
WIP?:no

Why This Must Be Read: Loving Logan Echolls is a doleur exquise, but loving Veronica Mars is certainly not any easier. This is a fic that doesn’t sugarcoat the darker, damaged aspects of both Logan and Veronica, but looks at every character with great honesty. Veronica has huge trust issues and a certain problem with being completely available on the emotional plane, whereas  Logan has his scars from Aaron and Lily, a self-destructive edge that is sometimes hard to control. This fic shows that beautifully. Yet it’s not a dark story – far from it.  Logan and Veronica slowly and gradually learn to face their traumas, learn from their mistakes, and build a life together. There’s a unique level of depth in this narration the show writers for VM should have envied. The prose is beautiful, which never hurts. And the epic saga that starts in this fic continues in two sequels that thread their alternate season 3 mixing the author’s wonderful perspective with season 3 canon elements. Also, the friendship that develops between Jackie and Logan here is something you grow to love fast, whether you loved or hated Jackie Cook onscreen. And Meg is alive and stays so in order to have a family with Duncan – how awesome is that? This my quintessentially perfect Veronica Mars fic, by definition!

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica/Logan, Veronica/Piz
Fic Title: A Fine and Endless Cycle
Author: [livejournal.com profile] the_spin
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/veronicamarsfic/1573057.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Angst, Romance, Drama
WIP?:no

Why This Must Be Read: Probably my favorite VM fanfic. The writing is fantastic. The characters are incredibly in character. It's got angst and romance, but it's dark and restrained and complicated, just like the characters. The story takes place where Veronica Mars ended too soon, at the end of season 3, with Veronica still with Piz, with her and Logan orbiting each other as they do, trying to figure out who they are, and who they are if they are together. If the show had to end too early, this is possibly the scenario I would have wanted to see play out in the TV show afterlife.
