Day 28 - A kink fic.

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Ise Nanao/Kyouraku Shunsui
Fic Title: Destination
Author: Charis M / [livejournal.com profile] myalchod
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3958120/1/Destination
Rating/Warning(s): K+. Character death, sort of.
Genre: Supernatural/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: From one beginning to another, the lives of Ise Nanao.

Sorry about the lack of nc-17 content. Weirdly, when I thought of kink, the first thing that came to mind for me was reincarnation!shipping, so I'm gonna run with it. There's some stunning prose, and the author manages to pack so much in each short snippet -- a lifetime in less than 100 words.

An example of that stunning prose )

Oh, this going to be fun. 30 Days of Recs in a week! So let's start this off. I have to say to rec stuff I haven't recced before was tough because I've recced so many of my faves already, but I'm always up to a new challenge.

Day 1 - 5 )
[identity profile] sandystarr88.livejournal.com
Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Rukia Kuchiki/Ichigo Kurosaki
Fic Title: Hello, Again
Author: hello heartbreak
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3792896/1/Hello_Again
Rating/Warning(s): T / character death
Genre: Humor, Romance, Post-Canon
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's the perfect ending, with Ichigo old and grey ready to die and Rukia waiting to bring him back to the Soul Society. This piece really captures their slightly odd at times relationship, leave it to Rukia and Ichigo to ruin such a solemn moment.

He doesn't bother squinting to find out where she is, because she always enters through the window. It doesn't matter where he is – his room, the kitchen, the hospital – she never uses the door.

Day 11 - A fic for your favorite Book pairing.

Fandom Category: The Infernal Devices
Pairing: Tessa Gray/Jem Carstairs
Fic Title: Secondary Liberties
Author: [livejournal.com profile] angel_gidget
Link: http://angel-gidget.livejournal.com/166491.html
Rating/Warning(s): R. Warnings for sensuality
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is a gorgeous one-shot, beautifully written, brimming with sweet yearning and breathless sensuality. Reading this always reduces me into a puddle of shipper-goo. I have no doubt Cassandra Clare will put us in agony in the next book, so I'm desperately trying to savor all of Tessa and Jem's happiness before canon destroys my soul.

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

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Rangiku Matsumoto/Byakuya Kuchiki
Fic Title: The Stage
Author: Feilyn
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3830297/1/The-Stage
Rating/Warning(s): M. Violence, mentions of character death, mild sexuality
Genre: Drama, futurefic
WIP?: No, completed MC.

Why This Must Be Read: It's called The Stage. Every woman in the Seireitei goes through it. Falling in love with Kuchiki Byakuya. The number one rule, however, is to never expect him to fall back. Psht. Rangiku never played by the rules.

Rangiku's wit, humour and strength are the cornerstones of this story, but its other strengths: minor characters are given development, odd pairings that somehow completely work, respect given to their more canon relationships, and, despite the story being primarily drama, the plot is surprisingly compelling. It also features Rangiku stalking Byakuya through the streets and eavesdropping on rooftops. And other places. What more do you need?

An Excerpt: You know, I've never understood why so many people come to me for advice. Is it the boobs? Do they somehow scream 'EARTH MOTHER' when I'm not looking? )

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: (Kusajishi Yachiru/Hitsugaya Toshiro)
Fic Title: Blue Moon
Author: Empatheia
Link: www.fanfiction.net/s/3176700/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG, character death
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP?: No, one-shot at 3,444 words
Setting: after the Soul Society arc
Special Rec: 7/28

Why This Must Be Read: I thought this fic would be pure crack, and I was pleasantly surprised to find a touching drama instead! I never thought I'd read a fic with Yachiro as a believable romantic interest. I am glad to be proven wrong!

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: (Inoue Orihime/Ishida Uryu)
Fic Title: Dandelion Fluff
Author: Sweet Danish Yummy
Link: www.fanfiction.net/s/2647944/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG, none
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No, one-shot at 965 words
Setting: this one is rather timeless
Special Rec: 8/28

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is worth reading for the amazing imagery. It is short, sweet, and beautiful.

Mods, I need a tag for the first ship. TIA!

Pairing: Ulquiorra/Orihime
Fic Title: Muse
Author: Princess Kitty1
Link: Chapter One
Rating/Warning(s): M- for abuse, alcoholism, prostitution, and some language.
Genre: Drama/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: You can't mention an Orihime fic without mentioning Princess Kitty1. She did an amazing job at transforming Hime into a jaded, independent woman with a troubled life, and it all changes when she meets Ulquiorra. I can't say more without giving it away, but this has to be one of the best Ulquiorra/Orihime fics out there.

Pairing: Ise Nanao/Zaraki Kenpachi
Fic Title: Love and the Art of War
Author: DarthAmmonite
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3891630/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Comedy, Romance
WIP?: Yes. WIP at 3 chapters, 5,657 words
Setting: doesn't matter, though there is one mention of "arrancar"

Why This Must Be Read: Would that all author-declared "crack" fics were this good! I enjoy seeing straight-forward characters show a different side, something canon doesn't always have the page count to give us, and this fic does that very well with Zaraki. While the fic is apparently abandoned, it's still a delight to read. And I really want a Zaraki-made bunny!

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Rukia Kuchiki/Ichigo Kurosaki
Fic Title: The "Holes in the Rain" Series
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hallowd
Link: Holes in the Rain, Girl in the Box, and Bones of the Night
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / blood, violence, spoilers for Soul Society arc
Genre: Drama, Friendship
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 16/30

Why This Must Be Read: This author has such a wonderful grasp of these two characters, and I loved reading both Rukia and Ichigo's point of views. Following them through three distinct points in the series these pieces really capture these two people and gives both Ichigo and Rukia such emotional depth; their interactions, banter, and the way they relate to one other is just pitch perfect, making this series a must read for any fan of this pairing.

Rating/Warning(s): G/None
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: A cute oneshot series that feature these two at their fluffiest best. Not quite the adjectives used to describe a pair of Shinigami Captains, yeah? A great sweet fix.

Author: Avelera

Rating/Warning(s): PG for some swearing
Genre: General
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Vizard!Pairing fics are hard to come by, let alone some well-written ones. This twoshot leans more on introspection but clearly showcases the lovable yet highly dysfunctional dynamic that these two characters share in the series.

Pairing: Gin Ichimaru x Rangiku Matsumoto
Fic Title: Fade Away
Author: Annie Sparklecakes
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6146549/1/Fade_Away
Rating/Warning(s): None
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A poignant oneshot detailing Gin and Rangiku's relationship in reverse chronological order. Not a style you see everyday but with a couple this tragic, it works.

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Orihime Inoue/Ulquiorra Cifer
Fic Title: heartplace
Author: Ryfee
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6318527/1/heartplace
Rating/Warning(s): PG/None
Genre: Angst, Romance
WIP?: Completed

Why This Must Be Read: The Ulquihime fandom may be saturated with fan-girls attempting to capture their romance in overdone weepy angst and purple prose but Ryfee's take on her pairings are so heartachingly exquisite. heartplace is a great representation of her work: poetic, soulful, melancholy and absolutely enchanting.

Rating/Warning(s): K+
Genre: Drama
WIP?: Oneshot

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the most beautiful stories dealing with Orihime and Ulquiorra out there. Less romantic and more beautifully touching and more in-character and most romances would be.

Pairing: Yachiru Kusajishi/Byakuya Kuchiki
Fic Title: Wasurenai
Author: Empatheia
Link: www.fanfiction.net/s/3731458/1/Wasurenai
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Humour/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:
One of the best fics for this unfortunately rare pairing, it's a good look at both characters and their rather odd relationship dynamic. The humour is also very well-done.

Pairing: Rukia Kuchiki/Ichigo Kurosaki
Fic Title: When the Sun Comes Up, You Better be Moving
Author: [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3330375/1/When_the_Sun_Comes_Up_You_Better_Be_Moving
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: AU, Adventure, Romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: In a universe where Ichigo is able to defeat the soul reapers that come to retrieve Rukia; the two then go on the run before they can be caught by the reapers that are sure to be after them. The odds are certainly against them, and the author succeeds in making the reader feel the desperate nature of the situation at all times. In canon, Ichigo drops everything in order to go save Rukia and it's very interesting to read as Rukia mirrors his actions in this AU.

Pairing: Nanao Ise/Shunsui Kyouraku
Fic Title: Breathing Lessons
Author: DarthAmmonite
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3629515/1/Breathing_Lessons
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance, Humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because the middle part of this fic has Nanao flash-stepping across Soul Society as she tries to avoid Shunsui (and the author manages to use "Zaraki" as a verb!), who could say no to that?
