Day 22 - A canon pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Captain America
Pairing: Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: and don't you dare be late
Author: irnan
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/433715
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.

Hi mods, may I have fandom tags for The Hardy Boys and Gundam Wing? Also I need pairing tags for Fujioka Haruhi/Haninozuka "Honey" Mitsukuni, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Hikaru, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Kaoru, Fujioka Haruhi/Suou Tamaki, and Sally Po/Chang Wufei. (Don't worry, all those anime pairings have been listed in accordance with the new policy on anime pairing tags.)

Day 17 - A short fic

Fandom Category: Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Pairing: Belle/Beast
Fic Title: Fur
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mahaliem
Link: http://oxoniensis.livejournal.com/394717.html?thread=21907677#t21907677
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 (Porn Battle fic; includes rough sex and explicit sexual content)
Genre: Drama/Smut/Stream of Conscious
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: "Some nights I dream I'm back in the cupboard". This manages to be erotic, claustrophobic, and pulse-pounding in so short a time, and focuses on Belle's emotions after marriage, after they've all been transformed back, and how it relates to her attitude toward the marriage bed. Written for Porn Battle several years ago, this still sticks with me as being impactful and erotic, all in under 300 words.

Day 25 - A fic where a canon character is paired with an original character.

Fandom Category: Will of the Empress
Pairing: Trisana Chandler/OC
Fic Title: Clear Skies
Author: KrisEleven
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3188952/1/Clear-Skies
Rating/Warning(s): T.
Genre: General
WIP?: No. Completed MC.

Why This Must Be Read: Willing to try anything to be normal, Tris hides her powers and her name to go to Lightsbridge. But of course the life she's chosen is not without its own perils... Will she be able to survive when her new life demands she give up everything she once was?

During Will of the Empress, Tris reveals to the rest of the Circle that she wants to attend Lightsbridge. This has spawned many fics based on the idea, and in my opinion, this is easily the best. The cast of characters are well developed enough you love them even as you want to shake some sense into them, the plot is engrossing, the character development on everyones' parts is very well done, and, of course, the cameos from the rest of the Circle gives it a nice touch. Tris herself is just perfect, in between her cynical view of the world, her wisdom from experience, and her insecurities.

Day 25 - A fic where a canon character is paired with an original character.

Fandom Category: Sherlock BBC
Pairing: OC/John Watson
Fic Title: The More Things Change
Author: Goldenbuttons
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, character death
Genre: Angst, romance, drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I don't read that kind of fic usually, but since I wanted to rec for today too, I found this one. This is a beautiful fic that is set post 'The Reichenbach Fall' and it deals with Watson's reaction to what happened in the episode. The OC is great, I love her quite a lot, and the relationship is really believable. You'll need tissues here and there, because this is not a happy fic at times.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; dubcon (sex pollen trope)

Why This Must Be Read: This is a smutty classic in Torchwood fandom. Tosh and Ianto are dosed with sex pollen. The only thing to do is let them have at it.

Rating/Warning(s): All Ages, None
Genre: Alternate Universe, Romance
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read:
Summary: "Every story is his story." A retelling of the Doctor and River Song's romance with magic and iPads.

A dreamy, magical AU that wonderfully shows the epic, mythical nature of Doctor/River. Terrific writing.

I am definitely behind my goal, so you'll see a couple of entries from me tonight in an attempt to catch up.

Fandom Category: Sky High
Pairing: OFC/Warren Peace & Majenta/Zach
Fandom #: 20
Special Recs: 62-63

Pairing: OFC/Warren Peace
Fic Title: War and Peace in Mind
Author: Jeune Chat
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3263773/1/War_and_Peace_In_Mind
Rating/Warning(s): K+/T
Genre: Drama/Sci Fi
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 62

Why This Must Be Read: First off, this is an EPIC length Sky High fic, which is practically impossible to find. I like how the author shows the characters dealing with the fallout of homecoming as well as the knowledge that just defeating the villain once doesn't mean the trouble is over. Smart villains always have backup plans, and this is an intriguing journey centered on Warren in particular as the group works to become the heroes they are supposed to be. The romance is slow in building, but it will happen!

I'm doing a second fandom today because I'm two days behind my goal!

Fandom Category: King Arthur
Pairing: Original Female Character/Tristan
Fandom #: 13
Special Recs: 51

Fic Title: Little Bird and the Hawk
Author: Tracy137
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2320888/1/
Rating/Warning(s): K+/T
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 51

Why This Must Be Read: This is a lovely AU of the film. It has drama and h/c, romance and adventure, angst and happy endings. It centers on the most mysterious of the knights and a woman they rescue along side Guinevere. If you've seen the film, you know the basic storyline - this adds an extra thread which changes the entire weaving without changing the central plot.

Fandom Category: Harry Potter

Fandom #: 12
Special Recs: 48-50

Pairing: Ginny Weasley/Harry Potter
Fic Title: Dumbledore's Army
Author: Bobmin356

Rating/Warning(s): M/R - warning! abusive!Durselys and manipulative!Dumbledore (mostly)
Genre: Adventure, Angst
WIP?: No

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.

So, in addition to participating in the Het Big Bang, I betaed three frickin' awesome epics, so I'd be remiss in not telling other people to read them in their finished forms.

The Avengers seems to be the new Harry Potter. Everyone's doing it, any pairing goes, and it's all awesome. )

Fandom Category: Star Trek (2009)
Pairing: Original Female Character/James T. Kirk
Fic Title: Potausu
Author: ArjetLuna
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7352916/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 | character deaths (not main characters)
Genre: Adventure, AU, drama, romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: I don't often rec WIPs, preferring to wait until they're finished so people can have the full experience at once, but on this occasion? I just can't help myself. This story is AMAZING. The ship is slow-building, and fits well into the many different subplots that the author has going on. There is so much happening, and it all comes together so incredibly well! An incredible story, one that should be read many times over and then given a rave review so that the author will know how well-liked it is and be encouraged in her writing. *shoos* Go go go!

Fandom Category: Rurouni Kenshin
Pairing: original female character/Saitou Hajime
Fic Title: Terms of Engagement
Author: Tamlin
Link: www.fanfiction.net/s/3403925/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, None
Genre: Comedy, Romance
WIP?: No, complete at 12 chapters, 42,627 words
Setting: just before the Meiji Revolution, so 10 years before the series starts
Special Rec: 17/28

Why This Must Be Read: All we know of Saitou's wife in canon is that she exists. In this fic, the author created an engaging woman equal to Saitou's presence, and gave us a romance-novel-style tale of how they met and the shenanigans their romance endured. If you're looking for something fun and light, this one's for you!

It's good to read fic about fascinating side characters. ^^

Pairing: OFC/Dean Winchester
Fic Title: A Foreign Country
Author:[livejournal.com profile] casspeach
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, romance, drama
WIP?: Nope

Why This Must Be Read: This story breaks from canon after In My Time of Dying, and explores the life that Dean makes for himself after an accident leaves him with no memory of who he is or where he came from. This fic could fall victim to a number of cliches that plague fandom, including the ol' amnesia plot and kidfic, but this story is thoughtful, well-crafted, and just beautiful. The OFC, Sally, is smart and strong and flawed enough to be realistic. And, really, I'm a sucker for any story where the Winchesters get anything approaching a happy ending.

Fic Title: Surfacing
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nyoka

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: A lush tale of two strangers coming together for myriad and complex reasons that help sketch them out as human but do not define them. Dean and Eva are whole persons unto themselves yet they are better together as they go about a day in the life and finally give into the pull between them. [livejournal.com profile] nyoka's OFC are always fabulous, but Eva is one of the best OFC I've read in fan fiction because she's everything special and yet entirely relateable.

5 Multifandom AU recs (because that's how I roll).

Fandom Category: X-Men (movie-verse)
Pairing: Jean Grey/Scott Summers
Fic Title: How the Leopard Changed Her Spots
Author: Minisinoo
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1647028/1/HOW_THE_LEOPARD_CHANGED_HER_SPOTS
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: AU, Power swap
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: So this is the 3rd time I've rec'd Min's work on this comm I regret nothing! but this fit so well with the current challenge that I couldn't NOT rec it. This is a power swap AU of X-Men 1 so everyone (except Professor X) has someone else's power. In this story Jean has Mystique's mutation and fights on Magneto's side, while Scott has Cypher's mutation, which allows him to learn, understand, and speak any kind of language (e.g. spoken language, body language, computer language, etc.). He's also deaf. It is so, so fascinating to see how these fundamental changes in mutation/ability shape both Jean and Scott. They're so different to their canon counterparts, but at the same time, the core of each of these characters remains. It includes an excellent and sensitive portrayal of living with a hearing disability, as well as a rousing and impassioned defense of diversity, tolerance, and compassion delivered by Scott to the Senate during the hearing about the Mutant Registration bill. So. Good. Go read it! Now!

Four more recs from FFVII, Twilight, and Sailor Moon )

May I have a Yuffie/Vincent tag, please? And I guess an Ami Mizuno/OC tag since that got 2 recs. OC pairing tags for Makoto Kino, Minako Aino, and Rei Hino would be lovely but not necessary.

Pairing: OFC/Peter Pevensie
Fic Title: The Maenad of the Maquis
Author: [livejournal.com profile] rthstewart
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/157627
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Character Study
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 9 of 34

Why This Must Be Read: This is a lush, history-rich continuation of the Narnia series, with Peter fighting behind enemy lines in France during WWII. The use of mythology here is just stunning, as are the connections from our world to Narnia. I'm normally skeptical of original characters in fanfiction, but Marie (the OFC here) is wonderfully written and serves a very distinct purpose in the story. Beautiful and poignant, this is a story that has stuck with me ever since I read it.

"But Narnia is my world!" Peter retorted, resisting the urge to kick a stone like the child to whose body he would be returned.

The god frowned and Peter heard a roll of thunder and a cracking of artillery shells with his disapproval. "Aslan belongs to many worlds, High King, and I as well. If you are able to give your love to only one place, you are not the man I thought."

Pairing: Original Female Character/Remus Lupin
Fic Title: Living With Danger
Author: whydoyouneedtoknow

Rating/Warning(s): PG13/T
Genre: AU/Drama
WIP?: No (the story is complete...the series it starts off is WIP)

Why This Must Be Read: This is the first epic story (200,000+ words) of an epic series (1,373,603 words and counting)! The author, Anne, has created a wonderfully complex HP alternate universe. She makes a couple of simple changes and the story spirals from there. This story starts six months after James and Lily Potter are murdered. What would have happened if just the right woman had met Remus Lupin? How would they have shaken up the Wizarding World? This series has become so popular that other authors are writing AUs of this AU and asking to do crossovers! If you enjoy Harry Potter, give her a chance you won't be sorry!
