Why This Must Be Read:

It's always hard to take such a cracky concept and play it straight, but this fic does it wonderfully. Natasha and Steve have such great chemistry, and there are a lot of ~feelings~ woven through the humour.
A fill for the "sex pollen" square on my het_reccers bingo card.

WIP?: yes

Why This Must Be Read: Tony discovers the Home Shopping Network! Funny and with great conversations this fic feels as canon as the movies. I keep hoping the author will write the next part in the series. This reader is dying to know what Tony will try and purchase next.

* Day 15 - A fic that convinced you of a pairing you previously hated.

Fandom Category: Star Trek
Pairing: Nyota Uhura/ James Kirk
Fic Title: Who Shall Inherit This Earth
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sinverguenza
Link: http://unfinishedline.livejournal.com/25655.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance, Adventure, Angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Everything Sin writes is excellent, which is why when she took on this pairing I gave it a chance. I was never a huge Uhura/Kirk fan, I preferred Uhura with Spock from the time that I was a little girl and was so happy when the ninth movie came out and them being a couple became canon. But then I read this story. I tell you, I fell in love with this pairing. Not only is the fic beautifully written, it makes the possibility of this couple make sense. By the end I was rooting for them and as a shipper I never looked back.

Days 16-21 )

Mods, may I have tags for Fandom: Freaks and Geeks, Pairing: Lindsay Weir/Daniel Desario, Fandom: Say Anything, Pairing: Diane Court/Lloyd Dobler, Fandom: Everafter, Pairing: Danielle de Barbarac/Henry II of France? Thank you.

During this month, I recced for a different pairing each day, but I still seem to have a few pairings for which I haven't recced. I've limited myself to ten of them, but there's more. And yes, now that I realise that, I'm quite afraid by the amount of shipping I do....

WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I have to say that for the past few weeks Leverage pretty much pwned my mind (yes I've just discovered this show and it's awesome), and while I love both Official Couples, I just can't live without Nate/Sophie. This fic is beautiful and it shows the progression of their relationship after San Lorenzo. Nate and Sophie are just spot on and this fic is a must-read!

More under the cut for The West Wing, The Pretender, NCIS, CSI, Avengers/Iron Man, Ringer and Unforgettable. )

Mods, can tags be added for 'ship: kate harper/will bailey', 'ship: catherine parker/sydney', 'fandom: unforgettable' and 'ship: carrie wells/al burns'? :P

Why This Must Be Read: Peggy and Steve's doomed romance in the movies just breaks my heart, so I love seeing them get a second chance in fic. This story features what might be my favorite Peggy/Steve reunion ever, ever, EVER. Seriously, ALL THE TEARS. And it's only one part of a series called interesting landings so you can get more of Peggy and Steve's story, if you so please.

Rating/Warning(s): M/R. Warnings for violence, death, and attempted suicide.

Why This Must Be Read: This series leaves me absolutely breathless and is one of my all-time favorite Syd/Sark stories. The characterization is fantastic--the author is unflinching in her portrayal of these ruthless, complex, and morally gray super spies. Highly recommended.

Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/James "Bucky" Barnes
Fic Title: this bullet lodged in my chest, covered with your name
Author: Cinaed
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/492587/chapters/860851
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Out of every Natasha/Marvel character pairing, Black Widow/Winter Soldier has to be my favorite. I love a good amount of angst in my pairings, and these two are absolutely fraught with it. This story explores the possible relationship that Natasha and Bucky had back in the Red Rooms and it is so beautifully crafted and nuanced that it's my headcanon now. Natasha is glorious in all of her assassin glory, intelligent and sharp and lethal, set against a backdrop of humanity and humor that few authors seem to give her. And when she cares...well. This is one of the best Natasha stories I've ever read, and the Natasha/Bucky bits are just the icing on the cake. Various warnings abound for violence, language, and horrible situations in general.

Mods, may I please have a tag for this pairing? Thank you!

Author: LouBlue

Rating/Warning(s): K+ / violence
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, Romance, Adventure
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I've shipped Pepper and Tony since I first saw them on screen together in the first Iron Man movie, and the thing that has always struck me about their relationship is how much Tony really needs her. The author does a wonderful job showing the impact Pepper has on Tony's life, and when she gets hurt how much he really loves her. Along with a great supporting cast by the rest of the Avengers, the relationships between all the characters were very well written in this piece.

Day 10 - A fic for your favorite Movie pairing.

Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Clint Barton
Fic Title: Li.ber.tas
Author: [livejournal.com profile] anuna_81

Rating/Warning(s): R, nudity
Genre: drama, hurt/comfort
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is just lovely. As Anuna put it, it's a story about Natasha and especially Clint reclaiming themselves after the events of the movie. She captured the characters and their relationship perfectly. Plus, the description of the landscape and of Dubrovnik (and the whole story related to the word 'Libertas') makes the story even better. Go read it if you haven't already.

Day 07 - A fic for a pairing with a lot of baggage.

Fandom Category: Twilight
Pairing: Bella Swan/Jacob Black
Fic Title: No Good Deed
Author: MeraNaamJoker
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8357521/1/No-Good-Deed
Rating/Warning(s): M/R. Warnings for language and sexual content
Genre: Breaking Dawn AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Anyone familiar with Twilight knows that to say Bella and Jacob have a lot of baggage is an understatement. In this AU, Bella doesn't become a vampire--she divorces Edward and leaves the Cullens to raise her baby on her own after Edward tries to abort the pregnancy against her wishes. 8 years later, a posthumous letter from Edward comes to his daughter--now named Saisha--imploring her to convince Bella to reconcile with Jacob since his actions have caused the both of them so much pain. This is actually a really thoughtful story, with a much more mature and confident Bella--one who recognizes her mistakes, owns up to them, and is willing to tackle her issues with Jacob in a reasonable and adult fashion. Jacob, while understandably resentful at first, is similarly able to put aside his own anger and meet her halfway to work things out. Of course, things hardly go smoothly and the author doesn't just ignore the issue of imprinting, choosing to address and resolve it in a very interesting way.

Day 06 - A fic with the most heartbreaking scene.

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Clint Barton
Fic Title: Phase
Author: SLynn
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/497316
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13. Warnings for discussions about mind-control/brainwashing
Genre: Aaaaaangst, Post-movie
WIP?: This story is complete in and of itself, but is part of a larger ongoing series that can be found here. It does work as a stand-alone read though.

Why This Must Be Read: I felt this story like a punch to the gut. Everything about this fic is heartbreaking--Natasha's backstory (which is written and presented with great skill), Clint's reactions, Steve and Tony being unfortunate observers of this particular trainwreck, and especially the last scene in the story. Just...utterly devastating to read, knowing how much Clint and Natasha have been through together, and then to see them having to take opposite sides, both for valid and understanding, if frustrating, reasons. The rest of the series is worth reading as well. There's fantastic Clint backstory, an intriguing treatment of how the team is learning to negotiate team dynamics and trust, and some truly wonderful characterizations.

Day 3: A fic for UST

Fandom Category: Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol
Pairing: Jane Carter/William Brandt
Fic Title: Needy, Desperate, Greedy
Author: havent_got_a_clue
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/340314
Rating/Warning(s): M/NC-17. Warnings for dirty talk
Genre: PWP
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Jane has to work her wiles on a mark, but has trouble getting into character as it's a particularly repulsive mark. Brandt proves he's a team player and helps her get "in the mood" by regaling her over the comms with the hottest dirty talk I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I could imagine Jeremy Renner's voice as I was reading and I think I may have actually whimpered a little. Seriously guh-inducing. It's evident that Brandt isn't just making things up off the cuff--he's been imagining it for a long time, and Jane clearly reciprocates judging by the ending. *g* Plus, Benji provides fantastic comic relief.

Why This Must Be Read: Because time travel fic, yessss. Due to a rather convenient deus Loki ex machina, Darcy gets sent back to the 40s, where she's a famous Hollywood actress who runs into pre-serum Steve. There are no words to describe how much I love her Steve and I am fascinated by how Darcy's presence is shaping the events of the movie. This fic is super adorable and full of fun 40s/Hollywood trivia.

Sorry, my week got busy! I am still determined to have 30 fandoms, so here is post 1 for today! My favorite OTP at the moment, and the one I've been looking forward to all month. I had to drop a couple of recs when I double-checked because they've already been recced. I highly recommend you check them out as well.

Rating/Warning(s): K+/T
Genre: Angst, Drama, Romance
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 69

Why This Must Be Read: I like this fic because it explores a little of the darker side of our heroes' lifestyles. Just like regular people, heroes have to deal with nightmares and PTSD. Sometimes these include flashbacks. Clint has a flashback and it puts Darcy in danger. This wraps up sweetly, but you can feel Darcy's concern and panic when Clint doesn't recognize her.

Rating/Warning(s): mature
Genre: Action/Adventure; Drama; Mission fic; Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is not only the most interesting take on the whole idea of 'being unmade' I've read so far, but one of my favorite longfics overall. Great writing style, the characterizations are amazing (down to the original characters) and the plot cost me a few hours of sleep because I didn't want to put it down.

“She didn’t tell you, did she?” asks Rogers carefully. “That she was afraid.”

Clint snorts. He thinks about sitting in a grubby Parisian café across from Nat, telling her about Fury’s issues and not realizing that she was in more danger than he was. He had thought that because her signature weapon wasn’t as obvious as his bow, that because her hands and feet were often the only weapons she needed, she was home free.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17. D/s, sadism/masochism, orgasm control, chastity devices, whipping, H/c, brief discussion of suicide.
Genre: Romance, some angst, all edged with kink. In tone, it goes darker here then lighter there. That's the best I can describe this
WIP?: Completed.
Why This Must Be Read: It's difficult to find fic that features het femdom in any fandom. This is one of the few there is and it's also one full of sublime writing. Loki and Natasha are two very difficult characters to write, and it's even harder when they both dislike each other and you feature them as a pairing in your fic. This fic captures everything well about them. They have banter, a dynamic that works for two harsh people like themselves. It works and it's sexy to boot. Not to mention intense in all the right moments.

Fandom Category:The Avengers/Thor
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Bruce Banner
Fic Title: I'm Gonna Be A Part Of It (Whether I Want To Or Not)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] fringedweller
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/495093/chapters/866425
Rating/Warning(s): M/R
Genre: Post-movie
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: If I could describe this fic in one word, it would be glorious. I just want to roll around in all the feels this story gives me. Immediately after the battle in New York, a couple of intrepid camera people stumble upon Tony and Thor unsupervised. Thor essentially blows up Darcy's spot on national television and Darcy has to be immediately extracted by SHIELD mid-semester, just 20 credits shy of graduating. To add insult to injury, they expect her to slave away at their HQ as a lowly grunt since she doesn't have a college degree. But this Darcy is determined and resourceful, and if SHIELD is going to completely uproot her life, then by god, she will find a way to get her own back and graduate, even if it involves blackmailing rookie SHIELD agents.

If you can't tell, I am in absolute love with this Darcy. She's got real and believable flaws, as well as some legitimate resentment over her situation, but she's also kind, competent, and able to make the hand she's dealt work for her. I love the backstory the author has given her and watching Darcy come into her own is an absolute treat. Aside from Darcy, there are so many other things to love about this story, including a fantastic cast of OCs (Agent Chuck Norris, bwah! XD), PUPPIES!!, food porn (om nom nom), and adorable Hulk antics. Speaking of, the romance between Darcy and Bruce is so lovely. The way their relationship deepens and unfolds feels very organic and just...ugh, all my feeeeeeels. This is such a satisfying story--go read, read, read!
