Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance
Special Rec: 96/100

Why This Must Be Read: It seems only right that I end my specialreccers month the way I started it -- with fic from one of my favourite 'ships that will (likely) never happen on-screen but, damnit, should.

[ profile] cereal writes some of the best characterisations in Penny/Sheldon fic and here she pairs that with one of my favourite fandom tropes -- two characters pretending to be in a relationship -- and spins out an evolution of their friendship into something much, much more with science, humour and a lovely sensual touch.

Fic Title: A White Dove
Author: Jemima Pereira
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, Drama
Special Rec: 91/100

Why This Must Be Read: This is AU fiction at its very best. It's about a Sam, and a Jack, and how they're both a little lost and looking for a way to keep living and fighting. If you enjoyed episodes like, There But For The Grace Of God and Point Of View, and like a good apocafic, you'll love this story.

Author: [ profile] daygloparker
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Drama, Romance
Special Rec: 86/100

Why This Must Be Read: Taking a cue from The X Files and Farscape, [ profile] daygloparker gives a fabulous look into how much things can change when, really, nothing has changed at all. I love so many things about this story: the confusion between what is real and what isn't, the way Sheppard and Weir interact, the descriptions of the first time (that isn't) and the first time (that is)... This story is all brilliance.

Fic Title: Virgil in Hell
Author: Ellie
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
Special Rec: 81/100

Why This Must Be Read: Starting with their flee from Atlanta, ellie gives us a closer look at Rhett's thoughts and feelings about Scarlett, and takes that further by spinning a delightful 'what if' during their reunion in the jail cell. A wonderful look into Rhett's mind and a more happily-ever-after ending than the book/movie gave. Just lovely.

Author: [ profile] liminalliz
Rating/Warning(s): PG 13
Genre: Drama
Special Rec: 76/100

Why This Must Be Read: A lot of Push fics focus on Nick being the alpha and the one in charge so it's refreshing to read a story where the power is most definitely in Cassie's hands. Here, Nick has been captured and wiped and it's up to Cassie to bring him back. Sharp, effective, and absolutely wonderful.

Fic Title: In Transit
Author: [ profile] phrenitis
Rating/Warning(s): PG, RPF, Adultery
Genre: Romance
Special Rec: 71/100

Why This Must Be Read: Every RPF story [ profile] phrenitis writes is pure gold and this one is no exception. In it, Joe accompanies Torri on her road-trip back to LA after her departure from the show, and gradually comes to realise... well. Lovely, lovely writing and characterisations make this one of my favourite all-time Torri/Joe fics.

Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Character Study
Special Rec: 66/100

Why This Must Be Read: [ profile] magneticwave describes this as Jo's backstory in a "choose-your-own-adventure"-style ficlet and, really, that's probably the best way to put it. Filled with multiple choice and fill-in-the-blank statements, along with snippets of moments, this is a brilliant study of both Jo and her relationship with Dean; a must-read for any fan.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Drama
Special Rec: 61/100

Why This Must Be Read: This story is the X3 movie we should have gotten. Marie's characterisation is wonderful, the perfect continuation of the person we saw in the first two movies (honestly, I get chills just reading her shout of, "can anybody fly?" -- just perfect) and the promise of something more between her and Logan is wonderfully subtle. An excellent AU.

Genre: Romance, Angst
Special Rec: 56/100

Why This Must Be Read: Remember when David woke up in Snow Falls and for a moment everyone was sure that he was actually James? Well, this story takes that thought and spins out a lovely, bittersweet AU where James knows exactly who he is, and who Mary Margaret and Regina really are, even if he doesn't quite understand just what it is that the Queen's done to him and Snow and everyone else.

Fic Title: False Steps
Author: Loch Ness
Link: Part I, Part II, Part III
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Drama, Action, Romance
Special Rec: 51/100

Why This Must Be Read: Epically long and equally brilliant, False Steps is approximately 80,000 words of drama, action and romance. (Think of it as another movie we never got to see!) Set mid-season two, the story avoids some of the more crazy storylines and characterisations that came later in the show, and highlights everything that was so awesome in the early days: Jarod being perfectly Jarod, Parker being perfectly Parker, and the two of them together making a perfectly wonderful duo.

Fic Title: Accidental Cuts
Author: [ profile] annakovsky
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Drama
Special Rec: 46/100

Why This Must Be Read: Accidental Cuts is a look into Elliot's head when he was waiting to find out whether he'd been infected with HIV back in season two and matches so perfectly with that timeframe, and Elliot and Olivia's characterisations, that I often have trouble separating it from what we actually saw on screen. A terrific look at something that should definitely be considered canon.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Romance
Special Rec: 41/100

Why This Must Be Read: Remember those days in season five, when Spike was realising he may feel more about Buffy than just a desire to kill her, and Buffy was still totally blind to any possibility that she might feel the same? Well, this story takes that time period and puts a more literal spin on things. The characterisations and dialogue in Love is Blind ring so honestly true, you'll think you could be watching an actual episode from the show.

Special Rec: 36/100

Why This Must Be Read: The shower scene in the Pilot episode was one of the first defining moments in Crews and Reese's partnership, and this fic takes that further by showing the next four times Crews and Reese also showered together. Wonderfully written, this is something I would have dearly loved to have seen on screen.

Why This Must Be Read: [ profile] lowriseflare and [ profile] threeguesses own, like, 70% of the sam/andy fanfiction market on the internet right now which means that, thankfully, at least 70% of the sam/andy fanfiction market is brilliant. Following on from the season two finale, christmas morning, back from the war shows the immediate aftermath of the preceding episodes with pitch-perfect characterisations, lovely writing, and a wonderful dose of sexiness.

Why This Must Be Read: Why do I love this fic? Let me count the ways: the writing is brilliant, the dialogue is awesome, and the characterisations are perfect. [ profile] liminalliz takes everything that is wonderful about Aliens and gives us a continuing storyline that makes a thousand times more sense then the one Aliens 3 gave us. This may be the best Aliens fic ever, true story.

Rating/Warning(s): NC17
Genre: Angst, Romance
Special Rec: 21/100

Why This Must Be Read: There are a lot of stories out there dealing with the effect Somalia had on Ziva so it's refreshing to see one that looks at how others are handling the aftermath of that summer. Burning Bright shows us the night Tony and Ziva shared in Paris, while Come hither, Sleep continues the story through the next couple of episodes. I'm not sure what I adore more about these stories -- the evolution of Tony and Ziva's relationship, Tony's good night wishes for Ziva, or the pitch-perfect characterisations.

Why This Must Be Read: [ profile] salr323 is one of the best writers around, and her Jack/Elizabeth fics are especially superb. With effective writing, pitch-perfect dialogue, moving character developments, and lovely historical insights, [ profile] salr323 takes the end of At World's End and shows how Jack and Elizabeth's story's might have continued on. This is a wonderful conclusion to the trilogy, and one that I know a lot of Jack/Elizabeth fans probably hoped for.

Author: [ profile] silverlining_99
Rating/Warning(s): NC17
Genre: Romance, Drama, Sex
Special Rec: 1/100

Why This Must Be Read: I could quite happily rec every story of [ profile] silverlining_99's, so it seems only right that I should start my specialreccers month with one of my favourites of hers.

Untitled is a response to a kink!prompt for McCoy and Chapel to have sex in the middle of an emergency, with the first part of the story showing a "missing scene" from the battle in the movie, and the second part dealing with the aftermath of both the battle and that moment. While sex is obviously a key aspect of the fic, it is the Chapel and McCoy's characterisations, and the emotions and stress behind their reactions to the battle, that will stay with you, after. Beautifully written.
