Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Complete in five parts
Special Rec: 31/31

Why This Must Be Read: for my last rec, i bring you the first fanfic that i ever really loved. i believe that i read this either in 1999 or 2000, which dates me terribly, but anyway. this is a beautiful roswell au that is based on the legend of persephone and hades. it is so spectacularly written that i think someone who had never even watched the show would find it interesting. if anything, it's more of a fanfic of the myth than the show. it is slow in a delicious sort of way, filled with rounded characters and a very erotic undertone. it is a fabulous read, and i'm grateful for it to this day, since it started my interest in fanfic.

thanks so much for letting me be your reccer for october, it was really fun to go through and dig up my faves. have a happy halloween, [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers!

Pairing: Sarah Williams/Jareth
Fic Title: Uninvited
Author: astolat

Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Complete in three parts
Special Rec: 30/31

Why This Must Be Read: i've read a lot of labyrinth fic, which is kind of an exercise in self-flagellation all on its own. not because there aren't good writers and plot - there absolutely are - but because the story itself is so unsolvable. do you make jareth live as a boring human? does sarah leave her family for the underground forever? i'm never happy with either ending. this fic, i think, finds the delicate balance. also, it's super hot and beautifully written!

Genre: Romance
WIP?: Complete
Special Rec: 28/31

Why This Must Be Read: a room with a view, anyone? one of the loveliest, most romantic films ever committed to celluloid, and a very beautiful book as well. this fic does a nice job of filling in some of the unseen narrative, and george and lucy being so delightfully george and lucy.

Special Rec: 27/31

Why This Must Be Read: this is a super-short comment fic, but i have a huge amount of love for this effed up pairing. i think the author really gets into franklin's head here, and i've yet to read anything better. it's awesome, slightly disturbing and completely debased. just like true blood.

WIP?: Complete
Special Rec: 26/31

Why This Must Be Read: a floaty, airy sort of fic that hits you in the face with a boatload of tasty angst at the end. its a rare pair for sure but certainly ripe for fic. this is a beautifully swift telling of eponine's story.

Fic Title: The Disobedience of the Heart
Author: Spock Jones

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Adventure/Romance
WIP?: Complete
Special Rec: 24/31

Why This Must Be Read: this fic is, technically, set in TOS, but i’ve only ever seen the reboot and this fic fits nicely into that universe too. i like kirk here – he’s funny and capable. this author avoids the unfortunate fannish tendency toward writing uhura as a bitch, and instead goes for the smart, funny, butt-kicking canon character. well written, and pretty succinct in 5 chaps. it’s worth a read.

Special Rec: 23/31

Why This Must Be Read:you don’t need to be a fan of nancy drew to enjoy this sweet, tremulous fic. viewers of the movie will especially enjoy it, though, i think. nancy is adorable and ned is just plain lovable as we follow his POV as they solve a mystery and fall in love, for real.

Why This Must Be Read: a lovely post-series fic that paints harry and hermione as somewhat lost souls, connecting in ways that even they don’t quite understand. this is a talented author who knows how to use sparse prose for maximum gain.

Why This Must Be Read: this pairing is so tasty, you guys would love it, i swear. just take a little nibble. this author does a great job with the vinnie voice, and y love the depth that she gives him, something that the show hinted at but never hit full on. Its funny, sexy, at times heartwarming, believe it or not.

Why This Must Be Read: arrested development, may you live forever. this fic does a nice job of showing a post-canon GM and maeby and how they might find some sort of happiness together. the humor isn’t forced, like it is in some AD fics, and there are a couple (funny!) references to the other members of the bluth clan.

Why This Must Be Read: super, super sexy, showing a very intense spock in the middle of everyone’s very favorite vulcan sex time. god bless the trek writers for pon farr. this is a little-known fic that doesn’t get enough love. the uhura characterization is awesome too. i love this take on a relatively overdone concept. the author is an author in real life, and her prowess shows!

Why This Must Be Read: l.m. montgomery! i’d wager that most of us here dig her stuff. this is one of the best blue castle fics i’ve read. the characters are real, still, and it manages to say something that is so perfectly in-character, you’d think the lady herself had written it as an epilogue.
