So I am going to try and get caught-up on the meme tonight, but I decided to break them up in case I miss the deadline. Happy Halloween!

* Day 08 - A fic for a pairing about a wedding and/or baby.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Humor, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I seriously LOVE the idea of Sheldon being obsessed with procreation. This fic has it all: wonderful Penny/Sheldon banter (and hints of a blossoming realtionship between the two), Sheldon babysitting, and a fun group dynamic. This continues to be one of my favorite Sheldon/Penny fics.
Days 9, 10, 11, 12, 14 )

Mods may I get tags for Fandom: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Pairing: Lisbeth Salander/Mikael Blomkvist, Fandom: Pretty Woman, Pairing: Vivian Ward/Edward Lewis? Thank you! :)

Rating/Warning(s): teen/mature Genre: ongoing series. epic
WIP?: series is ongoing, but there's two finished stories within it.

Why This Must Be Read: Wow. Best BBT voices ever. The first story in this series is a nice one-shot, the second one is longer and more meatier, and the third is ongoing epic. I find every single character in this stunningly in character. Clever lines, smart characterization, and funny. It's a realistic portrayal to Amy and Sheldon's ongoing relationship, including the hang ups and the obstacles facing them. Really, really enjoyed this.

Special Rec: 96/100

Why This Must Be Read: It seems only right that I end my specialreccers month the way I started it -- with fic from one of my favourite 'ships that will (likely) never happen on-screen but, damnit, should.

[livejournal.com profile] cereal writes some of the best characterisations in Penny/Sheldon fic and here she pairs that with one of my favourite fandom tropes -- two characters pretending to be in a relationship -- and spins out an evolution of their friendship into something much, much more with science, humour and a lovely sensual touch.

Why This Must Be Read: Penny realizes that Sheldon can count cards and decides they need to go to Las Vegas. The character voices are just fantastic and even though this is a very un-Sheldon situation the author manages to make it perfectly believable.

Well, today is my last day as your special reccer. I had a great time doing this, and I hope you've enjoyed it as well! Since I get a bonus leap-year day to rec this month (and, to quote 30 Rock, nothing that happens on leap day counts!), I thought I'd do something a little different today and recommend some of my favorite crossover stories.

Special Rec: 14 of 34

Why This Must Be Read: I don't know what it is about this ship that produces such wonderful fanfiction. I enjoy the show, but many of the stories written for BBT, and for Penny/Sheldon in particular, just go above and beyond. Juniperlane is one of the many incredible authors for this ship, and "The Costume Coincidence" is the epitome of a feel-good read, full of geeky adorableness (Doctor Who! Fett's Vette! The Guild!) and sweet romantic fun. Sheldon dressed as the Ninth Doctor will always be a perfect image to me, and I have this story to thank for it.

Fic Title: Calling Bluffs
Author: DSieya

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 for some language
Genre: Romance/Humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is the fic that made me an S/P shipper. I was mid-way through discovering the show, popped onto FF.net, and clicked on this out of curiosity ("Sheldon and Penny? How could that work?") and suddenly by the end of it, I realized they HAD to be together, and nothing else would be good enough. This takes the events of The Panty Piñata Polarization, and is a sequel to The Gothowitz Deviation (the one where he tries to train her with chocolate!). It has sensational writing and characterization, and off-the-charts chemistry between the two of them - and it shows Penny's excellently devious side. I can't gush enough about this (plus there's a sequel), and ANYTHING by this author. I could rec her forever and ever.

Fic Title: The Paladin Protocol
Author: SpaceAnJL
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5623923/1/The_Paladin_Protocol
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 for swearing and implied sexy-times
Genre: Romance with some angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is my all time favourite epic story in the BBT world. It takes off from late season 3, and spins a fantastic world where Penny embraces her inner warrior-strength, Leonard is forced to confront what a horrible friend/boyfriend he's been, and Sheldon grows up and lets the world touch his heart. What makes this story for me is that it is filled with so much beautiful and occasionally painful character insight, for the entire gang but especially Sheldon, Penny, and Leonard. The author is gently humorous and lets the characters and relationships develop through evolution, not contrivance. And the fic clocks in at a little over 90,000 words, so there's lots of funny, sweet, awkward, adorable Shenny goodness.

Genre: Romance, AU/Band!fic
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 1 of 30

Why This Must Be Read: Best. Band fic. Ever. In the history. Of the entire universe. She takes the Big Bang characters you love and transports them effortlessly into this world. Even though they're doing something that's almost completely different from what the show is, she keeps all of them totally in character. Her Penny and Sheldon voices are spot-on, and their relationship builds slowly throughout the fic, not rushing into anything, yet not jumping out of nowhere at you. I'm not even really a huge fan of The Big Bang theory, but this fic made me a fan of Penny/Sheldon. And if all band!fics were this good, I don't think anybody would bother to read anything else.

As for the special recs, I'm hoping to get 30 different pairings in here, since I don't have nearly enough fandoms to do just fandoms.

Special Rec: 3/20

Why This Must Be Read: Sheldon time travels to the time of unicorns. Penny is a warrior. Somehow, it works. I think montycrowley's other work has been recced here too, so her work has a history of being excellent. This is no different.

Rating/Warning(s): teen
Genre: preship, gen
Special Rec: 4/30

Why This Must Be Read: If you've gone looking for Sheldon/Penny fic, you've probably read this. And it walks the fine line between ship fic and gen fic, but still. I love it so much I'm still going to give others the chance to find it for the first time. Both these recs have a time travel theme, as in this one future!Sheldon comes back to present!Penny's apartment to stop him going to the university. Hence, a road trip! Future!Sheldon is believably described, and the voices are spot-on. I really think this fic sets the solid groundwork for future Sheldon/Penny.

Rating/Warning(s): PG, no warnings given.
Genre: Delicious crack with a dash of romance.
WIP?: No; complete at ~20,000 words.

Why This Must Be Read: The first and most important thing to know about this story is that it has Sheldon and a little girl playing FASHION SHOW. (There are even ponies. It is FABULOUS: "...Without rules, what's to stop me from declaring that my doll is the new wardrobe coordinator and forcing all of yours to wear substandard outfits? Or, better yet, to discard your premise altogether and move the narrative in a direction better suited to my knowledge and skills sets?")

The other thing you should know is that Howard turns into a fairy, so it's kindasorta crackfic, but very, very well written despite that. Love the established relationship between Sheldon and Penny, but it's also wonderful the way the group actually feels like a close-knit group of friends, when too often on the show they simply don't. Six thumbs straight up for tight writing in an urban fantasy.

(If you're new to the fandom, I'd recommend the rest of [livejournal.com profile] ishie's fic as a superb introduction to the fandom; you can find her stories under her author tag at [livejournal.com profile] sheldon_penny.)

Fic Title: The Ozian Declaration
Author: [info]elsiesnuffin
Link: HERE @ ff.net
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance/Drama/Angst
WIP?: No

Why this is a must-read? Though the story spans over only eight days, it seems like a lifetime as Penny comes faces some tough decisions about her future as an actress and whether or not she should even remain in Pasadena. By introducing an fun original character—Penny's niece, Emma—to the mix, the author finally has someone else see what we, the reader/viewer have been all along with the special dynamic that Penny shares with Sheldon. There's a nice, natural pace to this story. Elsiesnuffin let's the characters and their dialogue do most of the work, and nothing about the relationships feels forced.

Also, there's a miniature golf outing, which is about when I fell in love with the story.
[identity profile] cuban-sombrero.livejournal.com
Sheldon/Penny is quite possibly one of my few ships across all my fandoms that isn't defined as canon, and yet I think they have one of the strongest relationships demonstrated on TV, mostly because they compliment each other better than one would suspect.

There's literally hundreds of awesome fics archived at [livejournal.com profile] sheldon_penny; these are just a few of my favourites, so if you're looking for more, I'd recommend starting there.

Flying the Coop )

What Science Cannot Cure )

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the first fics I read, back when this show's fandom was little more than a blip in LJ's existance, and so, the fact that I still remember reading it, so long ago, says a lot for how much I appreciated Sheldon's characterisation in this. He's just so perfectly Sheldon, rational and overly-scientific and so befuddled by love.

Fic Title: "Back Through Interruption"
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lilyayl

Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance/General
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read:I never imagined I'd particularly enjoy a fic where the two protagonists spend a good portion of the story apart, but through [livejournal.com profile] lilyayl's well-crafted story, that's never a problem. We follow Penny as she strikes out on her own, leaving the boys in apartment 4A with a terribly brief note, giving no explanation for her sudden departure from there world. As she begins her life anew, we begin to see how much she was affected by her time living across the hall from geniuses, and Penny as well as the reader are able to see first hand how special her relationship with Dr. Sheldon Cooper, Ph.D really is.
