Hi! I'm Caiti and very excited to be your special reccer this month. I'm not sure how many recs I'll end up with (don't worry, it'll be way over 20), but I'm aiming for at least one fandom a day. I've got them lined up and ready to go, so lets get this thing started!

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Laura Roslin/William Adama
Fandom #: 1
Special Recs: 1-3

Fic Title: New Life, New Caprica
Author: Child-of-the-Dawn
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4764361/1/New_Life_New_Caprica
Rating/Warning(s): K+/T
Genre: Drama/Romance/AU
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 1

Why This Must Be Read: This is a lovely multi-chapter look into an AU of life on New Caprica. What if these two leaders of humanity had chosen to get married? It explores how that single changed instance would have affected the events which followed. With surprises, both good and bad, balanced by some romance and humor, this story is a wonderful additional to this ship.

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galatica
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama
Fic Title: Clean
Author: [livejournal.com profile] meyerlemon
Link: http://meyerlemon.livejournal.com/45937.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Character Study
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Even with the series being over for years one of the questions still being asked is “Why did Kara leave the party with Baltar?” back in season one.

This story is the best answer to that question that I have read (and is now part of my head canon).

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama
Fic Title: Aerilon Girls Are Easy
Author: [livejournal.com profile] flowrs4ophelia
Link: http://flowrs4ophelia.livejournal.com/113085.html
Rating/Warning(s): R (non-explicit sex)
Genre: romance/drama/AU
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This story explores the possibility of what might have happened with Kara and Lee's relationship if there had been no apocalypse to add to their baggage and complicated history. But unlike a lot of AUs, it doesn't simply carve out an ideal easy world for the characters, instead observing their inherent obstacles to happiness with a realistic sense of uncertainty. For anyone intrigued by the angst factor of Zak Adama's death, this fic cannot be missed.

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galatica
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama (mentions of Kara/Zak)
Fic Title: The Road Not Taken
Author: workerbee73
Link: http://workerbee73.livejournal.com/129076.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:
Bee's writing is a thing of beauty. She manages to give distinct voices to each character and do so with a limited amount of dialog, to pull emotion from out of the simplest of lines and leave you breathless as you read.

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galatica
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama
Fic Title: The Cutting Edge
Author: [livejournal.com profile] taragel
Link: http://taragel.livejournal.com/132069.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / Mild allusions to child abuse
Genre: AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: “The Cutting Edge” is my favorite movie of all time so I was hesitant going into this story, but the author manages to blend the plot from the one with the characters of the other just beautifully.

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Six/Gaius Baltar
Fic Title: Rational(e)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] butterflykiki
Link: http://bsg2003fics.livejournal.com/1563.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / none
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 1/30

Why This Must Be Read: The way this author writes Gaius Baltar just feels so true to the character. His thought processes, his selfishness, and the way he wonders about his lack of guilt and whether or not that signifies that he might not even be human anymore. And as always, Six is there with her non-answers and the absolute certainty that God has a plan and that Gaius will always be hers.

He hates her more than he has ever loved anyone else, quite possibly including himself.

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Sharon Boomer Valerie/Karl Agathon
Fic Title: When I Stop Counting The Days
Author: JPBryant
Link: http://repr0b8.livejournal.com/114012.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angst, Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 30 of 31

Why This Must Be Read: 
It's a story that fills the gap between season 2 a 3. It explains how Helo and Athena got to the good place the were in once the third season began. It's beautiful! Really touching and painful. I would rec this everyday if I could, because so far, I haven't come across anything as good as this for this pairing.

Fic Title: Not Quite a Sucker
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lyssie
Link: click here to read
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: friends with benefits
WIP?: complete

Why This Must Be Read:
In addition to drunken pilots-on-leave antics, this fic has some fabulous interaction, quite aside from the sex, between Starbuck and Helo that amplifies the best friends with benefits theme. It’s a fun and sexy fic, set pre-miniseries.

Fic Title: Forgetting
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nixa_jane, aka [livejournal.com profile] laytoncolt
Link: click here to read
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: one-night stand
WIP?: complete

Why This Must Be Read:
He says "call me Helo" and that's enough for her; an hour later she'll be screaming it like she's shouting for the Gods, and for the first time in thirty days she won't think of Zak at all.

This one line has stuck with me for years, ever since I first read the fic. It’s not the only good line, either. The fic is just gorgeous and it informs so much of their later interaction in canon (even though I’m pretty sure TPTB never read the fic).

Fic Title: A Step to the Left
Author: [livejournal.com profile] summer_smile
Link: click here to read
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: friends with benefits
WIP?: complete

Why This Must Be Read:
Again with the pre-series pilots-on-leave thing, the love and trust between Helo and Starbuck shines through every paragraph. It’s a very quiet fic, reminiscent of a late-night walk through deserted streets, with a UST that slowly builds until you know where the fic is headed, even though it doesn’t explicitly go there. It’s just that step to the left, where everything is the same, and yet everything has changed.

Fic Title: Uncertain Hours
Author: [livejournal.com profile] miabicicletta
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, AU after Six of One for BSG
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: First, because it's a BSG/TWW crossover! Do I need to give you another reason? Ok, then, this fic is just awesome. This is well-written, there's not a dull moment in this fic. And it has Toby, Sam and Josh all falling in love with Laura, which is funny. Seriously, go read it, you'll love it!

Fic Title: a litany of love letters
Author: [livejournal.com profile] bantha_fodder
Link: http://bantha-fodder.livejournal.com/35941.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Drama
Special Rec: 27/31

Why This Must Be Read: Well paced, with spot on characterisations, this story (written in the early days of the BSG fandom) delivers in all the right ways.

The Irreplacability of Things Lost, NC-17
Author:  [info]kag523
Characters/Pairings:  Kara/Lee/Zak; Dom/Mal/Ariadne if you squint
Current Chapter Rating:  M for mature subject matter
Summary:  In the Colonial Forces Black Ops Division, the skills of Dom Cobb are brought into play in order to retrieve the consciousnesses of two officers - Lee Adama and Kara Thrace - trapped in an ongoing dream-state. Spoilers for both Inception and the BSG series.
Genre: SCIFI
Disclaimer:  The following work of fiction is based on Ron Moore & David Eick’s re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, 2003 and on Christopher Nolan's, Inception, 2010.  The rights to the characters, situations and storylines from the series and film reside with the associated authors and studios.  We make no claim to these rights, nor is this work intended for monetary gain.  It is simply a creative process
Link: kag523.livejournal.com/65327.html
WIP?: Complete
Why this fic?: Follows much of BSG and Inception canon, although for Inception it is mostly post-movie. All characters have stayed in character. Though there is romance the overall scifiness of the whole piece is front and center. The balance of both fandoms in the story is very well maintained.

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Six/Gaius Baltar
Fic Title: The name of this story is your name.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria
Link: http://beccatoria.livejournal.com/88835.html
Rating/Warning(s): R / spoilers through Daybreak II, character death, violence, mentions of other het and slash pairings
Genre: Angst, Character Study
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria takes the idea of a Caprica Six who can never die and brings her through the entirety of human history. It's heartbreaking and amazing; this is a piece that everyone should read.

You still remember the names of your children. You remember a farm. You remember the story of Caprica; you remember the name of that story is your name.

This is so horribly late I'm not even sure if I ought to be posting it, but ... here we go. My sincere apologies for sneaking in way past the deadline! I could give the standard excuses (real life, illness, technical difficulties, which were all factors), but nobody is interested in those, I know, so let's just go ahead.

Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (2003)
Pairing: Kara “Starbuck” Thrace/Lee “Apollo” Adama
