Why This Must Be Read: Just an adorable snapshot of family life in the Jones household after Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Naturally, Indy and Marion are going insane when faced with a normal life. A really sweet, amusing fic.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Angst, post-movie, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's a rare thing for high school romances to survive beyond high school, and Kat and Patrick were no exception to that. But that doesn't mean that they're out of the game. Meeting again when they're adults might just give them a second chance. I just love this story. Elzed took the characters and really expanded on them, made them grow beyond their identities from the movies. They've matured, while still retaining that special spark they had as young adults. An adorable fic.

Pairing: Rebecca St. Clair/Jack Secord
Fic Title: Living in America
Author: minkhollow
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/series/10088
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Alternate Universe, family, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: For anyone who has a soft spot for this show and who liked this secondary pairing, this is a story for you! An excellent AU where Jack didn't die in the prime of his and Rebecca's lives, allowing them a chance to have a life together and how that life inevitably led them back to the Warehouse, even after decades of staying away. Simply brilliant.

Pairing: Dana Barrett/Pete Vankman
Fic Title: Long-Term Memory Loss
Author: Omorka
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/40143
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Occult, post-canon
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A spot-on story taking place after the second movie where the Ghostbusters attempt to answer the question that you just have to figure Dana was asking herself: "Why does this keep happening to me?" The guys are great in their quest to find out why Dana seems to always end up in the center of supernatural happenings, and Dana is also perfectly written, the mixture of fear and determination that we saw in the movies. The relationship between Dana and Pete is kind of in the background, but it's presence is still very much there, especially in Pete's protectiveness of Dana as well as his reluctance to cause her any more pain than she's already been through. It's an amazing story.

Fic Title: Noli Me Tangere
Author: athousandwinds
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/154250
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A brilliant short fic where two former lovers meet again, both having been pushed far away from each other, only to find their way back. I absolutely adore this story because it focuses on a great part of Anne Boleyn's history that The Tudors completely cut from the show -- her romance with Henry Percy, the heir to the Earl of Northumberland. It was almost a fairytale romance for them, only to have it shattered by a multitude of parties -- Percy's father, who had already arranged a marriage for Percy, Cardinal Wolsey, who had also already planned for Percy's marriage and for Anne's as well, Anne's family, and quite possibly even the king himself. An excellent look into the minds of two people who'd once loved each other, but whom neither got happily ever after.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, character death

Why This Must Be Read: A tragic look at the events of the movie through the eyes of Alice Munro, and just how she endured everything that happened, and how she finally stepped out of her fiery sister's shadow. A beautiful and sad story.

Fic Title: All Odds On
Author: Lisafer

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A lovely look at Rhett's book-verse proposal to Scarlett, from his point of view. Lisafer wrote Rhett's thoughts and perspective perfectly. Rhett Butler is the epitome of a scoundrel, and we love him for it, Lisafer really portrays just how much depth the man has. Yes, he wants Scarlett and is determined not to let his chance pass him by again, but the man has layers. He truly does love her, beneath that devil-may-care attitude, and this is an excellent portrayal of it.

Why This Must Be Read: A hilarious fic about Natalie and David's relationship after the events of the movie, as Natalie weathers the ups and downs of dating the Prime Minister. When she stresses, David is supportive (and a little amused). So very fluffy and adorable!

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Fluff, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A sweet, deeper look into a single scene from the movie, when Ichabod comes upon Katrina reading one of her mother's books late at night. Ichabod is rather adorable, and Katrina's wisdom is evident, even if he doesn't see it as such.

Rating/Warning(s): R, character death
Genre: Angst, AU, tragedy
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A heartbreaking alternative to Anakin and Padme's confrontation on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith. Padme's grief is palpable with every word, along with her determination to preserve Anakin's true memory, the good man he once was. I teared up when I read this.

Author: LizBee

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angst, missing scene, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's the perfect missing scene. LizBee writes Delenn and Sheridan's voices perfectly, velvet-covered steel the both of them, and yet it made the contrasting tenderness between them all the more touching. You really get the feeling of them being a military family, all readying to march off to war, both preparing for the absolute worst, and yet hoping, praying for the best.

Pairing: OFC/Edmund Pevensie
Fic Title: To Be Just
Author: caleon
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/174863
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Adventure, AU, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: The first in the Blades of Narnia series, the story focuses on Edmund and the many lingering issues he has regarding his actions during the conflict with the White Witch. Edmund wrestles with his guilt and his innate belief in his unworthiness to be a king of Narnia, while also attempting to head off yet another war. In the meanwhile, Asha, the OFC, must deal with issues of her own, as she at first seeks revenge for the deaths of her parents, but then finds herself stuck in the company of one of the people responsible for her pain. Both characters are equally fascinating, as is their journey together. The story fairly keeps to the book's canon, but the subsequent stories in the series take the characters in a wide, alternate direction.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, epistolary fic
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: For the fans who felt that Sense and Sensibility ended awkwardly, this is the story for you. Mercy retells the entire story of S&S via letters and diary entries, only she follows through on the friendship that grows between Elinor and Colonel Brandon and allows it to evolve into something more. Mercy also provides a lovely look into Colonel Brandon's life, something of which we only received hints of in canon. Excellently written and very true to the characters of the book. I fell in love with this story at first sight and I think you will too.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Episode tag
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Seriously, these two are one of the best television married couples ever! A post-ep. ficlet for 2.14 Payback, we get to see a little more of the fallout of recovering Peter from Keller's hideout. Neal's brief appearance is ten kinds of adorable, but it is the relationship between Elizabeth and Peter that really shines. These are two people who are at ease with one another and yet are by no means settled or boring. The two of them are great in how they stick close together as they finally finish out a very long, stressful day. Very sweet.

Fic Title: Normal Enough
Author: wickedtrue

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angst, reincarnation, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Minako and Kunzite were my absolute favorite pairing when I was in this fandom, and this story really highlights why. The author writes the story through Mamoru's eyes, allowing us to see the bond between Kunzite and Minako, while still leaving it full of mystery. So many questions lie unanswered, but in this case, that's okay. In addition, the author's portrayal of Minako and Kunzite are excellent. Minako is a perfect blend of her many personality attributes (bubbly, silly, but also serious and capable at the same time), and Kunzite is also compelling too, in his quiet way. That he's completely unfazed by Minako's more eccentric quirks is hilarious as well. A lovely read.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for explicit sexual situations
Genre: PWP, humor, romance

Why This Must Be Read: Beatrice and Benedict are hardly a conventional couple, right? So why would they necessarily do the right and proper thing, like we all know Hero and Claudio will do? A great, short story where Beatrice and Benedict throw over waiting for the priest and the proper ceremonies. They do what they want, when they want, and tease each other the entire time. And it'll make you laugh.

Why This Must Be Read: Personally, I think this is one of the best pre-ship stories ever! I love stories that portray Sarek and Amanda's first meeting, and this one is one of the best. I absolutely adore the light and humorous take on the characters, especially Winona and Amanda. Winona is driving George completely bonkers, and Amanda shocks everyone by having the guts to actually stand up to Sarek. What's not to love?
