Rating/Warning(s): All Ages, None
Genre: Alternate Universe, Romance

Why This Must Be Read:
Summary: "Every story is his story." A retelling of the Doctor and River Song's romance with magic and iPads.

A dreamy, magical AU that wonderfully shows the epic, mythical nature of Doctor/River. Terrific writing.

1.Fandom Category:Angel
Pairing:Cordelia Chase/Angel
Fic Title: Prism Series

Why This Must Be Read: I love the way the author captures the changing nature of the Cordy and Angel relationship during season three. It feels relaistic, and her handling of the off screen meeting between Angel and Buffy is one of the best I've come across. I'm a sucker for slow build up and this fic delivers that in spades. Each part of the serires could fit between an episode of the show.

2.Fandom Category:Angel
Pairing:Cordelia Chase/Angel
Fic Title:Profaned

Why This Must Be Read:This is one of the darkest Cordy/Angel stories I've read. Angelus does to Cordelia and in turn her relationship with Angel is sadistic and completely in character.

Fic Title: Demon Days
Author: trolllogicfics
Link: http://trolllogicfics.livejournal.com/63781.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: Demon Days is one of my favorites. It's an AU, so instead of being raised by a human mother and only becoming aware of his demonic side once it manifested when he was twenty-one, the Doyle of this world grew up Brachen clan and green skinned from the jump. This alters the Cordelia/Doyle dynamic a bit, because Doyle is secure with who he is - what he is - and his demomic lineage isn't a dirty secret he's afraid Cordelia will one day find out about.

Why This Must Be Read: Because she's awesome. No, seriously, she is. So go read NOW. In all seriousness though, when you read a fic by Yahtzee not only you get the feeling that she thinks long and hard about the story she's telling, but it makes you think, and it makes you wonder what could have been, and it makes you see the characters you're reading about in a new light. Her stories sometimes make me want to cry, and sometimes they make me laugh out loud, but always, always, make me want more.

Pairing: Angelus/Darla, Spike/Drusilla
Fic Title: Red as Any Blood
Author: D. M. Evans
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): Listed as "Mature", but it seems more like Teen/R to me.
Genre: (Twisted) Holiday fic, horror, humor

Why This Must Be Read: D. M. Evans writes the Fanged Four at the Christmas holidays, doing what normal people might do - you know, caroling, visiting houses, eating the people inside. This is more a horromedy than anything, with all the trappings of Victoriana lurking in the background.

Snippet! )

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Edward Elric/Winry Rockbell, Maes Hughes/Gracia Hughes, Roy Mustang/Riza Hawkeye
Fic Title: Love is a Battlefield
Author: D. M. Evans
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance

Why This Must Be Read: First, this is a chapter fic, and while the plot is pretty much a trope in FMA fandom, D. M. Evans was one of the first writers of this particular trope. Fuhrer King Bradley is holding the traditional midwinter ball to celebrate the season, and Winry has been asked to help with creating the rotating ballroom floor. Edward, as a major in the military, has been ordered to attend the ball, with a date, and Winry decides to teach him a lesson when he's slow to ask her.

This is a cute story, with a lot of humor, some sexual themes, and a lot of Edward/Winry and Ed+Winry+Al interaction. This is usually my go-to story for reading when I'm feeling blue, no matter what time of the year.

Fandom Category: Angel
Pairing: Lilah Morgan/Wesley Wyndam-Pryce
Fic Title: The Ninth Circle
Author: Mess
Link: http://archive.shriftweb.org/archive/8/theninth.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / none
Genre: Character Study, Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 7/30

Why This Must Be Read: Because this story has one of the greatest first lines I've ever read in fan fiction. This author's characterization of Wesley is just amazing with the all the bitterness of the man seen in the later seasons of Angel. A clever piece about the nature of evil that everyone should read.

Maybe that is why he feels disturbingly at home with a whiskeysoaked agent of Hell than with the ones to whom he should confess and draw penance. Maybe that is why he prefers not to think about that or talk about that but just let this particular state of being slowly take him over. Like blood poisoning. It will be softer, if he can fall on her. He cannot be dark if she is darker.

Her grin is sickening. He cannot see it, for it is marking lipstick into his pillow, but it's sickening nonetheless. Because he knows her. "See now? I know you could be reasonable. Once you apply that brain of yours to something other than prophecies or fucking you're actually not as deluded as I'd originally thought."

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 6 of 31

Why This Must Be Read: 

It’s all about Cordelia, with little glimpses at Angel and the gang. It’s placed in the middle of Season Three. When the whole gang was happy (most of the time) and together. I have no words for describing how amazing this fic is. No words. Just keep in mind that is THE best Cordelia-season3-real-introspective fic I’ve read. No doubts.

Pairing: Lilah Morgan/Wesley
Fic Title: a fight so old
Author: anythingbutgrey
Link: http://anythingbutgrey.livejournal.com/787051.html
Rating/Warning(s):Light R?? Mentions sex, though nothing explicit.
Genre: AU, angst/dark
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: A simple prompt: "Lilah is Angel's liaison to the Senior Partners." And honestly, who here didn't want that to be how s5 went down? But this fic has wonderful prose and fills in the what if of this scenario, highlighting the messy complication of the s5 memory erase that Wesley and the others went through, and how that effects the relationship Lilah has with him. It's messy, and achy and very, very real - just like their relationship in canon. Love this fic so much.

Fandom Category: Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Angel: The Series
Pairing: Cordelia Chase / Xander Harris
Fic Title: Echo
Authors: Vatrixsta
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/25701
Rating/Warning(s):Unrated by author, but PGish
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Another entry into the canon-Xander-pairings file. Cordelia/Xander was a delightfully unlikely pairing and (unlike most from either series) exist pretty much outside of the supernatural world. Instead, the pairing plays strongly on the high school themes in which "Buffy" was rooted, and it does so with wit, a heap of chemistry, and a strong dose of emotions that anyone who's survived high school can relate to.

Vatrixsta's fics are always worthwhile in my experience, but in this one, she really shows where and how Cordelia and Xander shine together--the clever little barbs, the emotional confusion and raging hormones, and the underlying sense that they could've really been something if Angel hadn't needed a sidekick in L.A. I always wished that the older and wise Cordy and Xander we knew in the last seasons of "Angel" and "Buffy" had had the chance to meet again--and here, we get a taste of that.

Author: IceMink

NC-17, explicit sex, language
Romance,angst, supernatural, mystery
Why This Must Be Read:
It's the one post series Angel/Darla story I've ever been able to find. It has Angel reverted to his evil ways, and running his evil firm - but you don't get to know that until the very end, because for the most of the story, you only see a 1603 Virginia Colony,  where a young prostitute runs into trouble with one of her clients, and mysterious stranger who calls himself Angelus and acts strangely modern, comes to her rescue. Obviously, the young Elizabeth is the woman meant to become Darla someday, and Angelus is certainly not here to save her, like she will find out after a night of unrestrained sex.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Post-series
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Post-series, Angel is found as an amnesiac human and it's up to Buffy to take care of him. Glorious, moving writing that gets this bittersweet atmosphere that just... oh, it's so beautifully painful and gorgeous. Watching Buffy move around him and everything she can and can't tell him, and how all those feelings are just beneath the surface. I loved this piece.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Humor
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: In which rogue demon hunter Wesley decides that seducing one of Wolfram & Hart's top lawyers is a brilliant tactical move, Lilah is more amused than she'd expected to be, and Cordy just wants Wesley to shut up about the torrid details of his love life. Preferably ASAP.

Hilarious look at an AU idea about what would happen if Wesley and Lilah had hooked up back in older days when Wesley was still a doofus. Somehow, Dollsome gets the dynamic to work anyway, by twisting the s4-sexual-tension-and-dark-motifs into an hilariously wonderful, feel-good fic. And Lilah even stays in character. Couldn't stop laughing!

Why This Must Be Read: Misty is one of the original -- and best -- Cordy/Angel writers in the fandom. Whether it was long and plotty novellas and fic series, or witty, intense standalones, Misty's stories always delivered. This story -- an AU fixit to the Connor (and Groo) storyline(s) -- is an awesome mix of comedy and romance (and a trace of angst) to give us the happily-ever-after tptb denied.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Drama, Romance, Angst

Why This Must Be Read:

It wouldn’t be long now, though. Wesley would find a way to fix things, to make it so that Fred never had to die, so that Holtz never took Connor.

Wesley would put right everything he’d managed to destroy.

Why is this my Favorite Het Fic of All Time?
Well, I do have a passion for long, well-written time-travel fics.
What would happen if you were given the chance to set things right? Wesley is thrown back in time, only to discover later that he should have been more careful what he wished for...

Also Tuff, the OFC, is wonderfully crafted... - Really, she writes sarcastic commentaries in the margins of romance novels, what's not to love? ;)

Fic Title: Another Life
Author: Inamorata
Link: http://www.dbfandom.com/anotherlife.htm
Rating/Warning(s): NC17
Genre: Romance, AU

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of my most favourite AU's ever. Described by the author as the episode Birthday "turned upside down and shaken", this is an excellent and well-written "what if". The story runs with the simple premise that Cordy never met with Winters in the pilot episode, never needed to be saved from Winters by Angel, and so never came to work at Angel Investigations, and does so in a way that is -- sadly -- wholly believable. This Angel and Cordy may have never graced our screens, but in this story they're just as possible and beautiful.
