Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Martha Jones/Doctor
Fic Title: 18, Goshawk Avenue
Author: Flaignhan
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3585836/1/18_Goshawk_Avenue
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Friendship, Humor
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 22 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary:Mr and Mrs Jones, they had called themselves. Naturally, the neighbours had begun to gossip. There are a lot of well written fics about the time Martha and the Doctor spent in 1969. I recently read this one and loved it! We get to see what the neighbors thought of the newest addition to the neighborhood. It is a sweet and funny take on Martha and the Doctor's sojorn in 1969 and how that could have changed things between them.

Fandom Category: Star Trek:TNG
Pairing: Beverly Crusher/Jean-Luc Picard
Fic Title: Evolving
Author: RhyannD
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7346782/1/Evolving
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance, Hurt/Comfort, Adventure
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 21 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: This story takes place after the episode Genesis; you know the episode where the crew starts de-evolving. I loved this story, not only because of the delicious h/c but because we finally get to see these two very stubborn people admit their feelings for each other as Jean-Luc helps Beverly while she recovers.

Fandom Category: Silence of the Lambs
Pairing: Clarice Starling/Hannibal Lecter
Fic Title: Breaking Free
Author: BookishGal
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7464446/1/Breaking_Free
Rating/Warning(s): Mature/mentions past cannibalism, murder, torture
Genre: Drama, Violence, Angst, Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 20 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: Incarceration is merely a minor inconvenience when Hannibal Lecter begins playing a delicate game with Clarice Starling. This is a very unusally dark story for me to read, especially considering the pairing. But the author does a beautiful job of just drawing you into a graceful and yet strangely inevitable dance between Hannibal and Clarice. It is a subtle story that is told from both pov's which is beautiful because we get to see how Clarice and Hannibal see each other and how they see their relationship. But what I really love about it is the fact that Clarice is not a victim, she is a strong woman who makes her own decisions and her own choices. I can't really get into to many specifics as it would give away to much but give this story a chance you won't regret it.

Fandom Category: The Sentinel
Pairing: Carolyn Plummer/Jim Ellison
Fic Title: A Wolf's Cry
Author: Katri1
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6804315/1/A_Wolfs_Cry
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/ Physical abuse against a child
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, Family
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 19 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: What I love about this story is that we get to see a loving marriage between Carolyn and Jim; you can tell they truly care about each other, which is very rare in this fandom. I love Carolyn and Jim in this story as they work as a team to figure out why Jim keeps having dreams that he needs to help a young wolf before it is too late. Plus Blair as a kid is super cute, without being annoying.
[identity profile] honor-reid.livejournal.com
Fandom Category: Cinderella (1950)
Pairing: Cinderella/Prince Charming
Fic Title: Ex Tenebris, Lux
Author: afterandalasia
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/248533
Rating/Warning(s): Teen/Abuse aftermath, Miscarriage, Mentions past emotional and physical abuse
Genre: Drama, Recovery, Depression
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 18 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: When you have lived in the dark, how can you learn to come to the light? When you have been taught evil, how can you teach good? Some things never leave us, and Cinderella fights to escape the ghosts of her past so that she can offer hope to her family. The author does such a great job of showing how difficult it is for Cinderella to adjust to being a wife and eventually a mother. It is a heartbreaking journey she goes on but also a hopeful one.

Fandom Category: Lord of the Rings/Chronicles of Narnia
Pairing: Susan Pevensie/Legolas
Fic Title: Across Worlds
Author: pkatharine
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5184203/1/Across_Worlds
Rating/Warning(s): PG/Violence
Genre: Drama, Romance, Adventure, Crossover
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 17 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: I loved this crossover. Susan finds herself in Mirkwood forest, unsure of why Aslan has brought her there. Eventually she meets Legolas. What is great is that Susan is not a Mary Sue in this story, but she does have a grand adventure and we get to see the events of the LOTR series through her eyes. I also really enjoyed the various meetings between Susan and Legolas as they slowly fall in love. Very well done crossover.

Fandom Category: Miss. Pettigrew Lives for a Day
Pairing: Guinevere Pettigrew/Joe Bloomfield
Fic Title: The Most Important Meal
Author: Dira Sudis
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/143026
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 16 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Joe takes Guinevere to the breakfast that was promised at the end of the movie. This reads like a perfect continuation of the movie. Both Guinevere and Joe are delightfully in character. A short but lovely story, that allows you to spend time with these two sweethearts for a little bit longer.

Fandom Category: Little Woman
Pairing: Jo March/Theodore Laurence
Fic Title: Without Him
Author: Alydia Rackham
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4243937/1/Without_Him
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Drama
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 15 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's Summary:Takes place the day Jo rejects Laurie, but puts a stop to the madness before it begins. Jo realizes what she will lose if she lets him go. Before I found fanfiction I thought I was the only one who shipped Jo/Laurie, only to happily discover I am not. I loved the way the author wrote Jo as she works through what had just occurred, as she goes from fully confident in her decision, to starting to have doubts, to realizing she made a awful mistake and must correct it immediately. The best part is we get the ending us Jo/Laurie shippers have always wanted. \o/!!

Fandom Category: Ivanhoe
Pairing: Rebecca of York/Brian de Bois-Guilbert
Fic Title: Deus Vult
Author: hereswith
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1679648/1/
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance, Drama
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 14 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: What if Rebecca of York had not refused when Brian de Bois-Guilbert arranged her escape from Templestowe? Rebecca is my favorite character in Ivanhoe and the author really does a great job with her character in this au story. I love the interaction between Brian and Rebecca in this story and the subtle changes in their relationship as they journey together. Very well written story, which will make you wish this teeny-tiny fandom was a lot bigger.

Fandom Category: NCIS
Pairing: Ziva David/Timothy McGee
Fic Title: The First Time
Author: Eienvine
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6833423/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Friendship
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 12 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: "But this is sophisticated, beautiful Ziva, and he's comfortable, geeky McGee, and such a thing seems like more than even a writer could imagine." This was the story that made me a believer in Ziva/McGee. The author does such a great job with writing Tim's pov in this story, he is perfectly in character and his growing comprehension of his feelings for his co-worker is really well done. Even if this is not your usual pairing for this fandom give it a shot you won't be disappointed.

Fandom Category: NCIS
Pairing: Ziva David/Timothy McGee
Fic Title: Confessions
Author: Precious Pup
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4861064/1/Confessions
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Humor, Friendship
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 13 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: McGee has been brought in at short notice to take the lead in a large undercover FBI operation. He is finding it more difficult than he anticipated and now Ziva has been brought in as his 'wife' What could be worse? The team try and help him through. I love stories where the characters have to go undercover as a couple and this one is so well done. The author does such a great job with the humor in this story, I giggled quite a few times at the various misadventures this couple goes through. The romance between Tim and Ziva is believable and very fun to read about!
[identity profile] honor-reid.livejournal.com
Fandom Category: Life
Pairing: Dani Reese/Charlie Crews
Fic Title: Precession
Author: Spatz
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/299313
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 11 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: This story takes place after the series finale. Dani ends up back at work before Crews and gets partnered up with Seevers. I really enjoyed Dani's interaction with Seevers and the slow realization of her feelings for Crews. The voices in this story are perfectly done and it makes me miss this show something awful.

Fandom Category: The African Queen
Pairing: Rose Sayer/Charlie Allnut
Fic Title: Tale on a Winter's Eve
Author: Meltha
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/273661
Rating/Warning(s): PG/Character death
Genre: Romance, Drama
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 10 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: On a wintery night Rose reflects on her life with Charlie. This was my Dad's favorite movie, so growing up I got a chance to watch it more then once, so it was great to find this story and get a chance to spend more time with these two. I love the way the author weaves such a beautiful tale of the life of Rose and Charlie. The turn of phrase in this story is simply lovely, and so well done.
[identity profile] honor-reid.livejournal.com
Fandom Category: Due South
Pairing: Margaret Thatcher/Ray Kowalski
Fic Title: Love Undercover
Author: TanyaReed
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/492388/chapters/860488
Rating/Warning(s): PG/Violence
Genre: Romance, Action
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 9 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: I loooooove the trope "going undercover as a couple" The author does a great job of bring Meg and Ray from mere acquintences to two people who are falling in love with each other. The case is very intriguing and I love all the little moments between the two of them as they get to know each other better. A really well done story! :D
[identity profile] honor-reid.livejournal.com
Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Rose Tyler/Doctor, Hints of Martha Jones/Jack Harkness
Fic Title: Mama Used To Say
Author: bobsyeruncle
Link: http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=43465
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Drama, Angst, Bitterness
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 8 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: Jackie Tyler shares her fears for Rose's future with Sarah Jane Smith. Missing scene from Journey's End. I had a hard time choosing between a couple different bobsyeruncle's stories, because I loved both of them. In the end I choose this one because I love that this is from Jackie's pov which I think the author gets spot on. Bobsyeruncle does a great job with Jackie's thoughts and opinions on her daughter's relationship with the Doctor. I could see a mother being less then happy with the course of Rose/10's relationship especially the ending. There are no punches pulled in this very well written story.

Fandom Category: Annie
Pairing: Grace Farrell/Oliver Warbucks
Fic Title: Maybe
Author: erm31323
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7276148/1/bMaybe_b
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 7 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: This story takes place between Annie's kidnapping and the celebration at the end of the movie. This is a great very well-written tale. The author does a delightful job of making this story feel real and fleshes out the characters in a believeable way. Really enjoyed how both Oliver and Grace are their own worst enemies in this story, which gives the story just enough conflict without it being tedious. But don't worry they eventually figure it out!
[identity profile] honor-reid.livejournal.com
Fandom Category: The Magnificent 7
Pairing: Mary Travis/Chris Larabee
Fic Title: The Auction
Author: C7
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5725764/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 6 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: What I love about this story is Chris' pov as he struggles with his jealousy and denial when another man starts to court Mary Travis. It all comes to a head at a town barn raising and box social, which finally pushes Chris to do something about his feelings for Mary. A sweet and lovely story that had me smiling.

Fandom Category: Star Trek (reboot)
Pairing: Amanda Grayson/Sarek
Fic Title: Vulcan in Shining Armour
Author: isadore13
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/147207
Rating/Warning(s): PG/Sexual Harassment
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 5 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Amanda's boss is a creeper and Sarek...well the title really says it all. This was a delightful tale of how Amanda and Sarek may have met. Amanda is a special ed teacher, who loves her work. One day a delegation of Vulcans tour the school and Sarek takes an interest in Ms. Grayson.

Fandom Category: The Mentalist
Pairing: Grace Van Pelt/Kimball Cho
Fic Title: Broken Road
Author: [livejournal.com profile] helsinkibaby
Link: http://helsinkibaby.livejournal.com/430676.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG/Major character death
Genre: Romance, Drama
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 4 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: This is a very rare pairing but the author makes it work. Tragedy strikes the CBI team, leaving Grace and Cho dealing with the aftermath. What I liked about this story was the way Grace and Cho go from being casual friends/co-workers, to actual friends, to being a couple. It is such a soft gentle romance, that has moments of sadness, and of course moments of joy.

Fandom Category: Forever Knight
Pairing: Natalie Lambert/Nick Knight
Fic Title: Coming Home
Author: Mary Combs
Rating/Warning(s): PG/ Vampirism
Genre: Romance, hurt/comfort, supernatural
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 2 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: This story is the happy ending I have always wanted for this traditonally tragic pairing. Coming Home starts after the series finale, Nick returns and Natalie is waiting. I loved how determined Natalie is to take care of a very weakened Nick and how resolved she is about how this time it will all be different between the two of them. Her strength of will, and the depth of their love see them through, to their earned happy ending! :D

Fandom Category: Forever Knight
Pairing: Natalie Lambert/Nick Knight
Fic Title: Slippery
Author: Amilyn
Rating/Warning(s): PG/ Domestic violence
Genre: Drama, Supernatural
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 3 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary:Nick shoved Natalie aside and headed for the door; they were not nearly finished and she'd be damned if she'd let him walk away. This story is so well written, about a very tough subject. Amilyn's story made me take a hard look at some of the darker more dysfunctional aspects of Nick and Natalie's relationship and how it could have all gone horribly wrong. But I think that it also transcends the show in that fact that if you took out the supernatural aspects it reads like an abusive relationship in a downward spiral. Both Nick and Natalie keep repeating the same patterns unable or unwilling to change. As you can tell I loved it. Give it a chance you won't regret it.

Very excited to be this month's special reccer! Here is my first rec I hope you enjoy it!:

Fandom Category: Doctor Who/Torchwood/Sarah Jane Adventures
Pairing: Martha Jones/Master + various canon pairings
Fic Title: Now We Have a Map of the Stars
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zauberer_sirin
Link: http://42number.livejournal.com/tag/nwhamots (scroll to the bottom of the page for Prologue)
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/Violence,War,Temporary character death
Genre: Romance, Drama, Angst, War, Humor.
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 1 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: total AU: Martha never left and the Master was never killed. The Doctor keeps his promise of taking care of him. Sort of. Martha helps. Kind of. This story is so well written and the author does such a great job of doing the almost impossible she keeps the Master in character. So don't expect to be overly fond of him for most of the fic, but like Martha you will find yourself sympathizing and understanding him more until he ruins it by being well...the Master. But this story isn't only about Master/Martha's burgeoning relationship, it is about all the relationships in the very dysfunctional Doctor Who family. Both Jack and Sarah Jane and their issues with the Doctor make an appearance. Also there are Martha's host of issues with the Doctor and her very conflicting emotions for and against the Master. Plus the Doctor's issues with companions in general and with the Master specifically, come to play. All of that and they are supposed to be stopping an invasion, that may or may not be happening in their timeline. It is 100,000+ words of delicious drama, adventure, and familial dysfunction.
