Why This Must Be Read | The Burkes make some mischief. As the summary reads, “Peter robbed a bank, Elizabeth stole a painting, crazy hotel sex couldn’t be far behind” Glorious, even if you don’t love smutty smut.

I've been saving these up for no real reason. )

Fandom Category: Chuck
Pairing: Chuck/Sarah
Fic Title: What Fates Impose
Author: Frea O'Scanlin
Link(s): FFnet, ebook formats
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, S1 spoilers
Genre: AU, Action/Adventure, Romance, Spy Thriller
WIP?: In progress

Why This Must Be Read: As a show, I've always felt that Chuck held a lot of promise, but that the writers fell down a lot on execution. This fic takes the things I had problems with and reworks them awesomely. As it stands right now, it's a 50+ chapter epic AU that's like Chuck rewritten as several really excellent novels with forthcoming sequels. It follows through on the darkness that canon only ever implied or handled badly, including things like spoiler for fic & season 3 ). It gives Sarah and Ellie the narrative time and respect they deserve as characters, refusing to keep Ellie in the dark past the point where someone as smart as she would have realized something's going on. It adds nuance to Chuck and Sarah's dynamic. It's epic white knight!woman/damsel in distress!man stuff, but with the full acknowledgement that there are many ways to be brave and heroic, and that physically taking out a room full of guys is just one of those ways. Frea's Chuck is brave and heroic in his own way, through his resilience, loyalty, compassion, and one or two believable combat skills. It's freaking fantastic. She's not in a hurry to move past the inner conflict Sarah faces over being Chuck's protector while falling in love with him, and the problems of Chuck needing to rely on Sarah so much and how that pushes them together but also keeps them apart is well handled. The story kicks ass in concept, plot, characterization, dialogue, plotting, prose... basically, ass is kicked all across the page.

You can read the main story in either web or ebook form at the links above. It's Chuck POV, but the author does Sarah POV side-stories. The one I'd most highly recommend is the prequel. I jumped straight into the main story before reading it, and that way works pretty damn well, but if you want more background it would be good to start with the prequel, I suppose. There's another fic that's meant to be read after certain chapters of the main fic here. There are others as well, the chronology of which you can see explained in her FFnet profile.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

Fic Title: Let's Play A Spy Game
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hariboo_smirks
Link: http://hariboo-smirks.livejournal.com/253482.html
Rating/Warning(s): Spoilers up to end of the most recent season of White Collar, all aired eps of Chuck
Genre: Action/adventure, undercover, crossover
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:
Oh, the world-blending is just a sight to behold in this. Honestly, with Carina as the bridge between WC-NY and Chuck-Burbank, and with both universes and every character involved just so wonderfully present (Morgan! June!), I can't rec this highly enough.

Fic Title: Anna saves the world. A lot.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] omfgsh
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/killthefreshmen/7804.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Written for an "awesome ladies ficathon," this little fic does everything in its power to prove that Anna Wu is every bit as awesome as you think she is.  And that there's a reason she's so good with a camera tripod.  Bonus points to the author for calling the obviousness of Operation Bartowk

Special Rec: 32/35


Fandom Category: Chuck
Pairing: Sarah Walker/Chuck Bartowski, Ellie Bartowski-Woodcomb/Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb
Fic Title: Twas the Night
Author: GoldenGirl
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5594793/1/Twas_the_Night
Rating/Warning(s): PG
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Set in the nebulous post-Season 2/pre-Season 3 time, Devon and Sarah chat while the Bartowski siblings engage in their annual Christmas screening of The Twilight Zone.   They also drink eggnog, which results in possibly the most hilarious back-and-forth I've read in a while.  You don't really have to read past "1 am," to be honest, but it is well, well worth your time to go up to that point.  I'd also be totally up for filling in some of the blanks in their conversation...you'll see why.

Pairing: Diane Beckman / Roan Montgomery
Fic Title: Three Times Diane Beckman Met Roan Montgomery (and One Time She Didn't)
Author: misura
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/143116
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: For what it's worth, this fic was written *before* "Chuck Versus the Seduction Impossible" aired and proved the author right. It gives a glimpse into Beckman's life pre-Chuck--her motivations and goals and independence. As we later see in the show, she certainly doesn't need a man, but a sweetly characterized Roan doesn't hurt.

Rating/Warning(s): R; none
Genre: romance, AU, fork in the road, action adventure
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 7/30

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, so another Chuck/Sarah fic, because I've recced the previous fic before, but since it's my favourite, I cheated. ;) This one I'm sure I haven't. AUing the events of the show in 3x01 it gives a wonderful look at how things could have gone had Chuck gotten on the train with Sarah in Prague. Chuck and Sarah are amazing here. Working out how their relationship will evolve now that they're technically on the run while still trying to deal with the ghosts of their past. I love this fic because it really does a good job at showing how Chuck and Sarah can function as couple in and out of the spyworld. Plus, sexy times.

Why This Must Be Read: This was one of the first Chuck/Sarah fics I read for the fandom and to this day it's still one of my favourites. Seriously, I go back and read it at least once a month. A six part series that depicts every aspect of the show and the ship wonderfully. Chuck and Sarah are spot on in their actions and feelings. A wonderful read.
