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
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3912678/1/Say-Something
Rating/Warning(s): K
Genre: Romance/Drama
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.

Day 11 - A fic for your favorite Book pairing.

Fandom Category: Madeleine L'Engle's book universe
Pairing: Vicky Austin/Adam Eddington
Fic Title: How like a winter hath my absence been
Author: hesychasm (Jintian)
Link: Here.
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance, Friends to Lovers
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's beautiful. Adam/Vicky is the pairing of my teenage heart and I basically love all fic for them, but this one is particularly lovely. It's quiet, almost, in the way that they are in the books and it just feels like them in the best possible way.

* Day 11 - A fic for your favorite Book pairing.

Fandom Category: Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell
Pairing: Arabella Strange/Jonathan Strange
Fic Title: every little thing she does is magic
Author: leiascully
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Mature; no standard warnings apply; sexual content
Genre: smut
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: While I like book series like The Hunger Games, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell is one of my favorite books released in the last decade because of how the book is formatted (like a book from the 1800s) and its well-plotted narrative. This fic captures the spirit and the writing of the book perfectly. Also, smut.

* Day 12 - A fic for your favorite Animated pairing.

Fandom Category: DCU Animated Universe/Batman: The Animated Series
Pairing: Selina Kyle/Bruce Wayne
Fic Title: Damsel
Author: mithen
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: Action/Adventure
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Batman: The Animated Series is still one of my favorite cartoons. I can totally see the events of this fic (Batman catching Catwoman) happening in the cartoon canon if the cartoon was still on the air.

CW RPF, Doctor Who, Gossip Girl, Burn Notice, Sherlock BBC )

Mods, I need tags for:
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell

* Day 01 - A fic for your current favorite ship.

Fandom Category: Burn Notice
Pairing: Fiona Glenanne/Michael Westen
Fic Title: Going South
Author: [livejournal.com profile] msmojorising
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): no rating given (PG-13ish); no standard warnings apply; "hints of violence" and general spoilers for seasons five and six
Genre: Action/Adventure, Alternate Universe
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I have no idea why Fiona and Michael are my favorite ship at this moment in time, but despite all their moments (good, bad, zany), I've fallen in love with them. This is an AU where Michael searches the world for Fiona and endures the wrath of Anson Fullerton (the fifth/sixth season's big bad, who was assassinated in Atlantic City in canon) and Fiona's mysterious family.

* Day 02 - A fic for your very first ship.

Fandom Category: Gossip Girl
Pairing: Blair Waldorf/Chuck Bass
Fic Title: Schadenfreude
Author: [livejournal.com profile] valiant
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; no standard warnings apply; "PWP, graphic hate-ish sex, dirty talk, light humiliation, light non-con (but not really)"
Genre: Smut
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: When I first started out in Gossip Girl fandom, I first fell in love with the Chuck/Blair ship. I thought they had great sexual chemistry at the time, and this fic feels captures what I felt about them perfectly. I'm surprised this hasn't been recced until now.

Days 3-10: Leverage, Gossip Girl, Doctor Who, Burn Notice, Inception )

Mods, I need a tag for Vanessa Abrams/Rufus Humphrey.

Fandom Category: Gossip Girl
Pairing: Blair Waldrof/Dan Humphrey
Fic Title: The Mean Reads
Author: [livejournal.com profile] artemis_sparks
Link: http://artemis-sparks.livejournal.com/36410.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; some Dan/Vanessa, and Blair/Chuck, but not the focus of the fic. Some language.
Genre: romance, intellectual romcom,
WIP?: nope

Why This Must Be Read: Oh Dan and Blair, the ship tumblr and season 4, I think, made me care about but they're so precious to me now. The socialite and the writer, the dreamer and the realist, the ones that want and think and think about everything they want. Also, the ones with the best ship construction the show has done. This fic is great for them. It's set in mid season three where they both start to move past their prescribed — and excepted by others — intolerance for each other and start getting somewhat closer. Using a line from Breakfast at Tiffany's, which is a brilliant move on the author on it's own merits, the "mean reds" is exactly how their relationship with the fic begins: afraid of what the other means. Dan and Blair do something that changes their perspective on each other. At least Dan's at first and then it's when starts getting complicated because they're not supposed to like each other. Here, Dan and Blair are snippy and snarky as each other always but they slowly fine that past all they say they hate about each other is someone that they don't hate at all.

Genre: Angst, Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 27 of 31

Why This Must Be Read: 

I was in love with these two, back when things were good or not good but not awful like they're now. They were amazing in season 1 and 2. They really were, and then I don't know why things got really complicated and I just lost interested in them. BUT, even though I don't care anymore about them, I do love some stories that take place in the early seasons. This two in particular were the first GG stories I read and they were pretty damn good! Sweet and angsty! Just like them!

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance

Why This Must Be Read: Never thought this pairing would work, but it really, really does. Wonderfully written.

Fandom Category:  Gossip Girl
Pairing: Blair Waldorf/Dan Humphrey
Fic Title: Dirty Pretty Things
Author: FallAway
Link: @ fanfiction.net
Rating/Warning(s): nc-17, sexual content, language
Genre: drama, romance, hurt/comfort
WIP?: No, big one-shot

Why This Must Be Read: The story picks up after graduation.  During this time, Blair and Chuck are going through the motions of a sick and very unhealthy relationship.  Blair knows this already but can't let go; she half-despises him, half-loves him.  And just when she can't take it anymore, when Chuck Bass is grating on her last nerve, making her feel used and nearly pitiful, Dan Humphrey manages to rescue our favorite Queen.  The two decide on being "allies", due to Dan's suggestion.  From there, Blair still goes through self-loathing routines with Chuck until she's at her breaking point and turns to her new "ally", knocking on his door with bleeding feet from a long walk and mascara running down her cheeks.  It's a story that shows development in character and in relationships, because it takes time for Blair to grow, as well as Dan himself.  This story was the first Dair fic I had ever come across and I am delighted it was; it's given me a pretty good impression of the pairing.

Title: Between the Shadow and the Soul

Fandom Category:  Gossip Girl

Author: Nyx Underwood
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6434706/1/Between_the_Shadow_and_the_Soul
Chuck  Bass/ Blair Waldrof
Genre(s): Romance/Drama
Rating: Rated: T
Summary: "I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where." On the
night of The Truce, Chuck is in an accident that wipes out his memory of the
last three years. What would happen if pilot-era Chuck wakes up to a Brave New
World? Post 4x06,
Why This Must Be Read:
Nyx Underwood writes well enough to be a professional - her chracters are tragic and yet hauntingly beautiful and complicated, so she manages to remind me exactly why Iove Chair even after the mess that Season 3 made of them. Maybeyou are thinking that the plot is such a clichè that you won't certainly bother to read it, but trust me, Nyx sells it so good than it nearly looks like a perfect real life situation.
