Day 11 - A fic for your favorite Book pairing.

Fandom Category: Temperance Brennan Novels/Bones
Pairing: Temperance "Tempe" Brennan/Andrew Ryan, Temperance "Bones" Brennan/Seeley Booth
Fic Title: Dr Brennan Meet Dr Brennan
Author: LizD
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, Angst, Mystery
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: First of all, there's a serious lack of Tempe/Ryan fics out there, and someone must do something about it so the wait between novels is easier. ;) Tempe/Ryan is my ultimate book pairing, and I'm glad I've found at least a fic to rec for them. LizD is writing this fic with the idea that Tempe and Brennan are two different characters (which, when you know both characters, is true, because they're really different and not just in age). Tempe/Ryan are written beautifully, true to their characters in the book. It's set during season 6 for Bones, I think when Booth and Brennan fell apart (I haven't seen the show in years, so correct me if I'm wrong).

Can we have tags for the pairing and the fandom, please?? :D

Ah, here is the last of my special recs for August.  I apologize for the lateness and cut it down to 21 but tried to keep a variety of fandoms and ships at least.  I'm glad I got to share some of my favorites!

Fandom Category: Downton Abbey
Pairing: Mary Crawley/Matthew Crawley
Fic Title: You & Me of the 10,000 Wars
Author: allthingsholy
Link: http://allthingsholy.livejournal.com/158762.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (R in later chapters)
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP?: Yes

Special Rec: 16/21

Why This Must Be Read: This is a modern AU where Downton Abbey becomes Downton Industries.  There are only two chapters thus far (out of a projected four), but I’m already completely taken by this author’s absolutely brilliant characterization of Mary -- a woman who can play the part of the perfect, proper eldest daughter to the tee when needed but also rejects the role, a woman who in one sense loves the glamour of the lifestyle she leads even as she cannot bear its superficiality.  Everyone else is also thoughtfully portrayed, and the writer has creatively and smoothly adapted Downton Abbey to the 21st century.

Special Rec #: 4

Why This Must Be Read: It is an older story (written in 2008) so it would definitely be beyond AU by now, but it is a hugely fluffy Christmas story that gets Bones & Booth together. It also includes Parker in a big way.

Fic Title: Bones and Soul
Author: Amilyn

Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Missing moments, fluff
WIP?: Not clear, but it's a series of one-shots, so it doesn't *really* matter

Why This Must Be Read: Short and lovely, each of these one-shots pulls on different heartstrings. Whether it's a missing moment, a small AU, or a prediction of what might happen in tonight's season premiere and beyond, you'll find a lot to love in "Bones and Soul." Bonus points go to the author for a reasonably plausible scenario to have Zach Addy discuss ladies' underwear.

Why This Must Be Read: It's a lovely post-ep for 6x22 that had me melting in front of my computer upon first read (and they're both still perfectly in character). I've since re-read it numerous times.

Rating/Warning(s): M-15
Genre: Romance, Angst, AU
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 12 of 31

Why This Must Be Read: 

Fics like this make you realize how much you miss Zack even if you weren’t aware until this very moment. It’s an AU that gets started a few years in the future and the whole story is told by Zack but it has a little bit of everyone in it. It’s incredibly good. Really, just wonderful.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] fluffernutter8

Rating/Warning(s): PG
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read:
This fic feels totally canon (or better, because I'm finding that fic writers in the Bones fandom tend to be better at this than actual writers on the Bones TV show) without being too shippy--rather, it's a frank exploration of a whole bunch of pieces of Seeley J. Booth.  I tried to pick out a couple items to highlight in particular, but they're all so there that I'm not sure I can.

Rating/Warning(s): F
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read:
Post-coma, Booth tries to figure out how to tell Brennan he's in love with her.  Told partly through dialogue, partly in stream-of-consciousness, and a bit of prose poetry, we can only wish cannon was this eloquently rendered.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Because there are few things better than actual shipper payoff, and Hodgela are going to make awesome parents.  Because Hodgins is the kind of dad to bring his kid plush creepy-crawlies, and Angela is the kind of mom who is secretly okay with that.  The Brennan bits here are sweet, but the Hodgela bits are sweeter.

Genre: Romance/Humor, some team/squints/lab too
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 10/31

Why This Must Be Read: Gordon Gordon teaches Booth how to make mac and cheese over the course of two months. I feel like this fact alone merits a read. If you need more (although really, you shouldn't!), this story from start to finish feels like it could have (maybe even should have?) happened on the show, and it keeps the characters true to themselves.

Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: one-shot
WIP?: No.
Special Rec: 8/20

Why This Must Be Read: Cute, you guys. It's not specified whether this is an established relationship fic or preship fic, but it doesn't matter. Brennan and Booth being themselves, Brennan with no knowledge of social boundaries and Booth not realising how obviously intertwined they are. Short and sweet, but packs a humorous punch.

Special Rec: 9/20

Why This Must Be Read: Booth and Brennan, finally realising they should have sex. This is the conversation that comes after that (after the realisation, not the sex).

Why This Must Be Read: How the end of season five could (should?) have gone. Pitch-perfect characterisations with an almost lyrical writing style, this story will capture your attention and not let it go. Just beautiful.

Rating/Warning(s): R, sex, language
Genre: Comedy , Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Lovely little piece that shows the wonderful dynamic of Booth/Cam, both in a relationship and just as friends. This author nails Cam especially, capturing her smarts, humor, and inner-strength wonderfully. The setting of this fic is also unique - Cam and Booth talk over an autopsy. It's perfect for this fandom. I only wish there were more fics like this.

Highly recommend this one. ;)

Rating/Warning(s): R/Vague spoilers for 3.09, Santa in the Slush
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:[livejournal.com profile] nekare writes Bones and Booth in a way that is both true to the show and somehow more. Lines is a of basketful of moments, each one moving our couple forward in small ways, until what started out as a "kiss on a dare" slides neatly into a natural (and believable relationship).

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/Published in July, 2008 (summer after s3) spoilers through 3.15, The Pain in the Heart.
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This one's a beautiful retelling of Brennan and Booth's life together, with all the little moments that make it special and theirs. Jules did a masterful job of taking their beginnings and weaving them into a present and future in a way that will make you believe, as I do, that "of course that's the way it all happened." Go. Read. You won't be disappointed (but you might need a tissue).

Rating/Warning(s): M - language and innuendo
Genre: Humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the first 'Bones' fics I read that was laugh out loud funny. There is always angst to be found in a pairing that is yet unrequited, but this one-shot is one of those fics that I read every time I need a chuckle. As an added bonus it has Zack in all his awkward glory which makes it a tad bittersweet at this point.

Rating/Warning(s): R (Spoilers for 4.12, Double Trouble in the Panhandle)
Genre: AU/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This delightful AU takeoff on the fourth season episode Double Trouble in the Panhandle will leave you feeling more than a little nostalgic for Buck and Wanda Moosejaw--ridiculous knife-throwing act and all. Ever wondered how Booth and Brennan managed to share that tiny little trailer without "crossing any lines?" [livejournal.com profile] daygloparker does more than wonder. She puts it in writing in a way that is both imminently believable and utterly satisfying.

The one-year anniversary of the comm seems a uniquely appropriate date on which to post a rec, so here goes:

Fandom Category: Bones
Pairing: Temperance Brennan/Seeley Booth
Fic Title: Punctuated Equilibria
Author: Bite-or-Avoid
Link: http://bite-or-avoid.livejournal.com/1175.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance/Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the most intimate non-explicit stories I think I've ever read. [livejournal.com profile] bite_or_avoid does a beautiful job of showing us the push and pull of Booth and Brennan's relationship and the way they work so hard to control the brewing "something" between them until it boils over and becomes something else altogether.
