I've been reading Veronica Mars fic fervently again since news of the movie, so here be some recs. Enjoy!

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls (side Lilly Kane/Logan Echolls, Veronica Mars/Duncan Kane)
Fic Title: Bait and Switch
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] stainofmylove
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/86168
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Drama, Angst
WIP?: Nope.

Why This Must Be Read: A pre-series AU, this fic offers an alternate version of events in the romantic lives of Logan, Veronica, Lilly, and Duncan leading up to and just after Lilly's death. Logan's note to Lilly and dismissal of Veronica take on a whole new, gut-wrenching meaning.


Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Cindy "Mac" Mackenzie/Dick Casablancas
Fic Title: Dark Places Where Monsters Dwell (Secrets and Lies Remix)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] soundingsea
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/50120
Rating/Warning(s): Mature; Character death
Genre: Apocalypse/Dystopia
WIP?: Nope.

Why This Must Be Read: The summary reads, The apocalypse leaves Mac with Dick Casablancas for company. Super. I never thought I'd read Mac/Dick. However, admittedly, in an apocalypse, all bets are kind of off, and strange bonds are formed. This fic is moving and has that great tone end-of-the-world pieces can have--sort of sad but hopeful in the end.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: Dear Veronica
Author: [fanfiction.net profile] katjen
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3049142/1/Dear-Veronica
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Angst, Romance, Second person (partially), Epistolary (partially)
WIP?: Yes, but each chapter feels standalone

Why This Must Be Read: I almost stopped reading this fic because the first chapter is essentially a letter from Logan to Veronica where he's very emo post-"Look Who's Stalking" (the "epic" speech). BUT the next two chapters are amazeballs, the concept being that each uses a song on a mixtape Logan references in the first chapter (however, I wouldn't consider this a songfic). Chapter 2 is from Veronica's pov and gives us "extra scenes" from the beach on prom night with Lilly, Logan, and Duncan, while Chapter 3 is Logan pov and set at that fateful Shelly Pomeroy party. Killer last line.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls, side Meg Manning/Duncan Kane
Fic Title: Inertia Creeping
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] sinaddict
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/80158
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Angst
WIP?: Nope.

Why This Must Be Read: Semi-AU post-"Russkie Business," this fic inventively explores Logan and Veronica's growing connection in light of the loss (real and felt) of their mothers. We see this connection through their interaction (there's a superb Logan voice) and through Duncan's gaze and contemplations, which are jealous, sad, and filled with the (also superbly written) interjections of his dead sister.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls, Original Female Character/Logan Echolls, with mentions of Veronica Mars/Stosh "Piz" Piznarski and past Lilly Kane/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: Mexicali Blues
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] flyingcarpet
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/45283
Rating/Warning(s): Mature; References to child abuse (Logan's)
Genre: Angst, Introspection
WIP?: Nope.

Why This Must Be Read: Fics that go nowhere or just plod along drive me nuts--when they pretend to have a plot that really just meanders. This fic is meditative in the best of ways; not much happens, but really SO much does. It's Logan, alone, at the beach, working through stuff the summer after the first year at Hearst. And it is wonderful.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: Narcolepsy
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] kartography/[livejournal.com profile] the_spin
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/36580
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit; Dubcon for drunken sex (with one partner more intoxicated than the other), Alcohol abuse,
Genre: Angst
WIP?: Nope

Why This Must Be Read: Because this fic perfectly captures the mess that is a post-breakup Logan (set during Season 3 after Veronica learns about his liaison with Madison). Because it showcases the angst, the fierce, mutual protectiveness and emotional fuckwitedness of both parties, what keeps them apart and keeps them coming back for more.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: We Will Fall Apart
Author: [livejournal.com profile] cartwheel_dizzy
Link: http://veronicamarsfic.livejournal.com/1218499.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angst
WIP?: Nope.

Why This Must Be Read: Summary: Veronica's a bit of a fatalist when it comes to relationships. I love the form of this, the repetition of the title phrase that, by the end, takes on a different tone. It's about doubt and, ultimately, hope. Basically, Logan/Veronica in a nutshell. Veronica pov.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: yellow lights and caution signs
Author: [livejournal.com profile] cartwheel_dizzy
Link: http://veronicamarsfic.livejournal.com/1665330.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Ficlet
WIP?: Nope.

Why This Must Be Read: Summary: Logan can't slow down and Veronica can't catch up. Set in the summer between seasons 1 and 2, Veronica POV. Another sophisticated exploration of LoVe from this author, using the unexpectedly effective metaphor of Logan's (in)famous yellow XTerra.
