Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Alec Hardison
Fic Title: Untitled
Author: [livejournal.com profile] longsufferingly
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): Not rated – I’d give it a PG
Genre: Humor
WIP?: No
Special rec: 24/25

Why This Must Be Read: You might have noticed a theme with most of my recs – I like funny. This is set during the first season after The Wedding Job...Hardison asks Eliot to be his wingman and find out if Parker likes him. How desperate do you have to be to ask Eliot to be your go between?

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Alec Hardison
Fic Title: Understanding and Feeling
Author: [livejournal.com profile] emily64cooper

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angsty
WIP?: No
Special rec: 25/25

Why This Must Be Read: On the other hand, I also like fics that make me go “aww” and sniffle a bit (must be the dust in here). This one is set right after this season’s The Hot Potato Job…Parker is learning how to deal with feelings, hers and other people’s. It’s not easy to love Parker, but it’s not easy to be Parker, either. This season of Leverage has been all about her journey toward the light, and this fic captures that perfectly.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my recs this month…it’s been fun highlighting some of my faves. Good luck to October’s special reccer!

Pairing: Donna Noble/The Doctor (10th)
Fic Title: It Happens to Every Time Lord
Author: [livejournal.com profile] shaggydogstail
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): R – Explicit sex (sort of), very slight BDSM
Genre: Crackfic/PWP
WIP?: No
Special rec: 23/25

Why This Must Be Read: Hilarious tale exploring the premise that Time Lords generally aren’t all that good at telepathy, so psychic sex with them probably isn't all that.

Fandom Category: The Bourne Trilogy
Pairing: Marie Kreutz/Jason Bourne
Fic Title: Breathe
Author: fearlessfan
Link: Fanfiction.net
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special rec: 21/25

Why This Must Be Read: Takes place after The Bourne Identity…what sacrifices has Marie made to live a life on the run with Jason Bourne, and how does she feel about it? And how does he? The author creates a wonderful Marie voice.

Fandom Category: The Bourne Trilogy
Pairing: Marie Kreutz/Jason Bourne
Fic Title: The World of Women
Author: seperis
Link: Archive of Our Own
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit (Explicit sex, descriptions of violence)
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No
Special rec: 22/25

Why This Must Be Read: Another post-Bourne Identity story…Marie asks Jason why he only watches the men, never the women. As he explains, they both realize just how vulnerable Marie is. He starts teaching her how to live like he does, which allows Marie to shoulder some of Jason’s burden…and isn’t that part of what love and marriage are?

Fandom Category: CSI
Pairing: Wendy Simms/David Hodges
Fic Title: Tumbling
Author: [livejournal.com profile] savvygal
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Fluff, Romance
WIP?: No
Special rec: 12/25

Why This Must Be Read: A fluffy little story that takes place in a laundromat. It’s nice to see these characters interacting outside of work…their defenses are down a bit and neither of them is as bitchy and arrogant as usual. Wendy and Hodges were my favorite CSI ship and I wish we had gotten a few scenes like this before Wendy rode off into the sunset.

Fandom Category: CSI
Pairing: Wendy Simms/David Hodges
Fic Title: It Was Like
Author: Augusta
Link: Fanfiction.net
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance, Humor
WIP?: No
Special rec: 13/25

Why This Must Be Read: As I said above, Wendy and Hodges were my favorite CSI ship…and I also started to prefer the lab rats to the CSIs. This story has the techs gossiping about The Kiss Sara planted on Grissom, and Hodges gets a little too enthusiastic in his retelling.

Fic Title: On the Clock
Author: YappiChick
Link: Archive of Our Own
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: UST, Humor
WIP?: No
Special rec: 11/25

Why This Must Be Read: It’s Flo the Progressive Insurance girl, isn’t that enough? Ok, it’s Flo and Mayhem from Allstate flirting in the break room before their shifts as insurance spokespeople. Even the Geico gecko has had it with their sexual tension in the workplace! Bonus: Mayhem has checked Flo’s background…what is she hiding?

Pairing: Luna Lovegood/Dudley Dursley
Fic Title: On the Mating Habits of Muggles & Naturalist Witches
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ragdoll
Link: InsaneJournal or Skyehawke Archive
Rating/Warning(s): R/NC-17 – Explicit sex
Genre: Humor, Romance
WIP?: No
Special rec: 10/25

Why This Must Be Read: I know what you’re thinking…Luna and Dudley?? But it works here. They’re a couple of 20-somethings now and Dudley has matured quite a bit. Luna, still as odd as ever, plays Jane Goodall and chooses Dudley as her subject of study. Hijinks ensue. The story is hilarious but very sweet. As a small bonus, the author poses some thought-provoking questions about why Dudley views the wizarding world with fear.

Fic Title: Forget Voicemail
Author: [livejournal.com profile] blueabsinthe
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special rec: 9/25

Why This Must Be Read: We get a quick peek at Mike and Connie’s relationship after Connie moved from New York to Los Angeles. It's sweet and suggestive (and slightly fluffy).

Fandom Category: Law & Order
Pairing: Elizabeth Rodgers/Joe Fontana
Fic Title: Five Times Joe Fontana Knocked Elizabeth Rodgers Over with a Feather
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sipman
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): PG for most; #4 is rated M – Explicit sex
Genre: Romance, Angst
WIP?: No
Special rec: 8/25

Why This Must Be Read: Even if it isn’t your fandom and you don’t know the characters, you really should read this. It’s a beautiful portrait of a relationship between two adults, jaded and cynical from their years as a medical examiner and a police detective. Watching them progress and open up to each other and the possibility of love is a joy.

Pairing: Parker/Alec Hardison
Fic Title: Lock & Key
Author: [livejournal.com profile] arobynsung
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Flangst (which I assume is 'fluff' and 'angst'?)
WIP?: No
Special rec: 7/25

Why This Must Be Read: From Parker's quote in The Beantown Bailout Job comparing people to locks…you have to take your time and be fiddly. The author connects several small moments between Parker and Hardison, showing the truth in Parker's words. It's sweet and funny and perfectly in character.

Fic Title: River’s Handbag
Author: [livejournal.com profile] b_c_draygon
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Humor, Romance
WIP?: No
Special rec: 6/25

Why This Must Be Read: River's handbag saves the day on their latest adventure, but whenever the Doctor tries to figure out the secrets of the bag, River does that thing to the Doctor's ear.... Perfect River Song characterization and voice!

Fic Title: Wrong Turn on the Way to Albuquerque
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nonelvis
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Humor, UST
WIP?: No
Special rec: 5/25

Why This Must Be Read: Apparently the Eleventh Doctor doesn’t trust himself with Amy’s virtue, so he attempts to bring Rory to the TARDIS as a buffer. This is the hilarious tale of the other time the Doctor jumped out of a cake. The author’s Eleven voice is spot on.

Fic Title: Somebody's Crying
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hannasus
Link: Archive of Our Own or LJ
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Humor, Angst
WIP?: No
Special rec: 1/25

Why This Must Be Read: Alec Hardison loves Parker and he is willing to wait for her to figure out what love means. In this story, Eliot knows Parker is crying in the ladies room and he figures Hardison is to blame. What did Hardison do to make Parker cry?

The author does a fabulous job recreating the voices of the characters and blending humor with a touch of angst.
