All of these recs could be under multiple days, but I've tried to match each one to a paticular day.

Day 04 - A fic that demonstrates how a pairing with little canon romantic chemistry/interaction can totally work.

Fandom Category: Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.
Pairing: Myrcella Baratheon/Robb Stark, Arya Stark/Edric Dayne, Margaery Tyrell/Renly Baratheon, Loras Tyrell/Renly Baratheon, Sansa Stark/Willas Tyrell [many more, including some that are spoilery at the link]
Fic Title: Acts of Treason
Author: SecondStarOnTheLeft
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Mature, character death, sex, spoilers for the novels
Genre: AU, romance/adventure, war
WIP?: No.

Summary: A rebellion in ten acts, beginning and ending in Winterfell. Or, How Myrcella proved herself a Baratheon, regardless of her blood.

Why This Must Be Read: The premise of this fic is that Myrcella is betrothed to Robb Stark at the beginning of the first novel, and how this spirals out and changes things. But I think the biggest leap is giving Mrycella her spot in the limelight. We don't know terribly much about her in the canon, and she has maybe one chance to meet Rob. But she is the daughter of Cersei and Robert (in name at least), and it really shows in this fic. The author gives her a hugely stubborn will, and a great deal of perception. This could just as easily have been the "epic" fic rec, but what really sells this story is the way the romance between Mrycella and Robb is strung out from puppy love to true partnership. I do warn you, that like the books, some things will utterly break your heart. But it's so, so worth it.

Also I picked it for this catagory because of the sheer number of ships for characters that haven't even canonically met.

four more pre-canon/AU recs )

Mods: Could I request Elia Martell/Rhaeger Targaryen, Lyanna Stark/Rhaeger Targaryen, Sansa Stark/Willas Tyrell, Ashara Dayne/Ned Stark and Daenerys Targaryen/Jon Snow? The rest are fairly minor one-off ships.

I apologize that I have been so terrible at staggering these fics. :/ I have them all compiled, and will be sure to get them all out this last week of August. 

Fandom Category: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones
Pairing: Brienne of Tarth/Jamie Lannister
Fic Title: lions for lambs
Author: honey_wheeler
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/260669
Rating/Warning(s): M; explicit sex; spoilers through A Storm of Swords
Genre: Romance, Smut
WIP?: No

Special Rec: 11/21

Why This Must Be Read: This is an absolutely brilliant and thoughtful characterization of Jaime and the way he sees Brienne.  Love and lust, affection and desire all mix together perfectly in this fic.

There is no yielding here, no soft surrender. She loves like she fights: fiercely, deliberately, whole-heartedly. She shares none of Cersei’s womanly affectations, none of her prettiness. Brienne grunts where Cersei would have moaned, hisses where Cersei would have sighed.

Fandom Category: A Song Of Fire And Ice / Game of Thrones
Pairing: Sansa Stark/Tyrion Lannister
Fic Title: Beautiful Is The Mother
Author: mrstater
Link: Here
Rating: T
Genre: Fantasy, Childbirth, Marriage, Future Fic
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: It's a great character study of Sansa, as after giving birth to Tyrion's children, she reassesses their marriage and begins to see things differently. I love how their relationship is portrayed here. There's a great sweetness to it but Tyrion is still very much Tyrion and Sansa proves to be bold and strong and there's wonderful underlying heat to their relationship which I love. They're a great match for each other. This fic really solidified for me my love for this pairing and left me with a big smile on my face. It's completely believable and I love it.

Fandom Category: A Song of Ice and Fire
Pairing: Myrcella Baratheon/Robb Stark
Fic Title: Heliotrope
Author: sharkygal
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/232634
Rating/Warning(s): (Going by Ao3): NC17. Underage, non-graphic mentions of abuse and rape.
Genre: AU, PWP, an answer for a kinkmeme, romance...
WIP?: Nope.

Why This Must Be Read: This is the first Myrcella/Robb fic I've read, and I've been shipping them since.  I think I'm going to go with what sharkygal had written in the summary notes..."Gratuitous appreciation of Myrcella." Really, it's a delicious PWP that I've read more than once...

Fandom Category: ASOIAF/Game of Thrones
Pairing: Dacey Mormont/Robb Stark
Fic Title: you impressed upon my shapeless hunger 
Author: Hesperia
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/399660/chapters/657878
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit
Genre: Alternate Universe-Canon
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: This fic looks at the idea of it being Dacey instead of Jeyne who comforts Robb at the Craig. Dacey is very well written, strong and independent but struggling with her love for Robb and her desire to keep him safe. Only two chapters so far but I am hooked.

Fandom Category: ASOIAF/Game of Thrones
Pairing: Dacey Mormont/Robb Stark
Fic Title: Here We Stand
Author: lit_chick08
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/407210
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Alternate Universe
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read: This fic is all about the awesomness of the Mormont women. Dacey is so incredible in this fic. If this fic doesn't make them your OTP, nothing will.

Pairing: Sansa Stark/Sandor Clegane
Fic Title: A Death Which Lovers Love
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zsra187
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/372217
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit / sex
Genre: PWP
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This one-shot is such a hot little 'plot, what plot', between Sansa's initial embarrassment and Sandor talking her through it; this piece is steamy and is everything that I love in my smut.

He caressed her there, rough fingers smoothing gently over soft skin, eliciting a gentle sigh from her parted lips. ‘Tell me…do you do this to yourself, Little Bird?’ he rasped.

Fandom Category: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones
Pairing: Gendry/Arya Stark, Arya Stark/Edric Dayne, Gendry/Sansa Stark
Fic Title: No Featherbed for Me
Author: lit_chick08
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/317779
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Epic.
WIP?: Yes. 10/12 complete, but don't let that stop you from reading.

Why This Must Be Read: I love one shots and whatnot, but nothing makes me fall in love like long, plotty fics with excellent characterization. Ugh, my heart. All the love for this fic. Spanning decades and across the entire GoT 'verse, this story is really flipping good, perfectly capturing the universe in which this show exists. From politics to backstabbing to screwed up and flawed characters to shady ones to just, yes. Everything. It's not often I read a fic that actually tugs at many emotions for me, but this one had me loving Arya and then wanting to ring her neck because of some of the decisions she made, and all of it stayed true to character. (And literally like every GoT character appeared in this, omg.)

The author did a spectacular job with this.

Fandom Category: A Song of Ice and Fire
Pairing: Cersei Lannister/Eddard Stark, Cersei Lannister/Jaime Lannister
Fic Title: The Lion Queen
Author: Laine
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/372050
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/R | Semi-explicit sexual situations, references to incest (nothing explicit)
Genre: Alternate universe
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A fascinating AU of where Eddard Stark takes the Iron Throne after the rebellion that ousted the Targaryens from the Seven Kingdoms. Cersei is absolutely fascinating in this story, and you watch her have the chance to become something other than a madwoman. It's a short story, a snapshot in this 'verse, but you can just imagine how things might go beyond the confines of the fic.

*this is where I say, yes, I ship it and nothing hurts*

Fandom Category: A Song of Fire and Ice
Pairing: Sansa Stark/Jaime Lannister
Fic Title: The Lion and the Wolf
Author: Bl4ckSun
Link: The Lion and the Wolf
Rating/Warning(s): M, Spoilers for the books if you hadn't read them, for the show if you hadn't watched it.  Triggery for rape, violence...
Genre: Romance/Drama/Angst
WIP?: Sadly, yes.

Why This Must Be Read:

I only started shipping Jaime/Sansa last year, hadn't read the books, but I watched the show. And I had tumblr to tell me what I needed to know...and I've been shipping them ever since. Bl4ckSun takes the story of Sansa, and puts a twist on it that is really wonderful in it's own way. I really can't say a lot without giving away the happenings of the books and/or the fic, but hopefully you'll like it.  Bl4ckSun doesn't update very often, the latest being about a week or so ago, so it's a few months between updates...sometimes longer, but it's worth it when it's updated, so worth it.
