Day 31 - BONUS - Wildcard/Catch up on a missed day
I decided to go with: Fanfics for couples that you don't ship.
Fandom Category: Yu-Gi-Oh
Pairing: Mazaki Anzu/Motou Yugi
Fic Title: Say Something
Author: Chibi's Sister
WIP?: No. Completed at 65,000 words.
Why This Must Be Read: Anzu thinks she has everything she's ever wanted in life... until she gets invited to Yugi's wedding. Priorities and past feelings abound. It's really an ensemble story (with background Rebecca/Yugi, Serenity/Tristan, Joey/Mai and a surprise pairing), and I love that the author uses the opportunity to showcase everyone's friendships and different voices. The core triangle isn't annoying, either, but fully realised and sympathetic to everyone involved -- not to mention featuring some of the best writing I've ever read, in the sense that it rings so true to life. I cannot recommend this story highly enough, or love this story more even if it had been written with one of my OTPs as the centre. It's that good.
