Day 17 - A short fic

Fandom Category: Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Pairing: Belle/Beast
Fic Title: Fur
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mahaliem
Link: http://oxoniensis.livejournal.com/394717.html?thread=21907677#t21907677
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 (Porn Battle fic; includes rough sex and explicit sexual content)
Genre: Drama/Smut/Stream of Conscious
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: "Some nights I dream I'm back in the cupboard". This manages to be erotic, claustrophobic, and pulse-pounding in so short a time, and focuses on Belle's emotions after marriage, after they've all been transformed back, and how it relates to her attitude toward the marriage bed. Written for Porn Battle several years ago, this still sticks with me as being impactful and erotic, all in under 300 words.

Plus More in A Mighty Wind, The African Queen, Adventures of Brisco County Jr., The Little Mermaid, Burn Notice, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Hairspray, Evil Dead Series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Venture Brothers, The Secret Garden, The Addams Family (Movies), Moonlighting and Caroline in the City )

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

Fandom Category: How I Met Your Mother
Pairing: Barney Stinson/Robin Scherbatsky
Fic Title: Taking Chances
Author: [livejournal.com profile] buckbeakbabie
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Mature for sexual content
Genre: Romance, Humor, AU
WIP?: yes (first of a possibly unfinished series).

Why This Must Be Read: Just when I thought I could leave this fandom behind, season 6 happened. So I poured through all of my favorite classic pieces: "Metal Heart", and this one, an AU in which Robin is the one to devirginize Barney. It's HILARIOUS, IC, and sexy all at once

Three more in Burn Notice and Days of Our Lives and, plus three Fairy Tale recs! )

Fandom Category: Batman (Nolanverse)
Pairing: Talia al Ghul/Bane, Ra's al Ghul/OC
Fic Title: In Her Mother's Likeness
Author: vestigialwords
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): Teen and up audiences
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I have always been big on fics with an outside looking in theme and this is no exception, the author portrays the complex and striking relationship between Talia and Bane beautifully. She also paints a striking view on the relationship between Talia and her father or lack there of, using his relationship with here mother as a counterpoint. This hits on one of my other all time favorite situations: Two sides of a coin.

6 AU multi-fandom recs!

Fandom Category: How I Met Your Mother
Pairing: Barney Stinson/Lily Erickson
Fic Title: Not Breathing
Author: divine one
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4769010/1/Not_Breathing
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 - Hard R/NC-17
Genre: Angst Angst Angst
WIP?: Not technically, though the author now has at least 9 parts/sequels (all oneshots)
Why This Must Be Read: This is the start of the author's "marshalldeadverse", which is how the first one starts. Marshall dies, and somehow Lily has to move on. The tragedy and heart-break is SO palpable, and some of the parts in this series have made me cry *like anywhere from tight-chested choking up to full on sobbing). Some involve some pretty graphic sex scenes, so warning there, but mostly everything is incredibly well written - and totally depressing, but in such a good way. The evolution of Lily and Barney's relationship is so well done, and so in character. I can't say enough good things about this series, it's mind-blowing and so, so sad but so, so freaking good.

Rating/Warning(s): pg-13 (Set post Benefits)
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 10/45

Why This Must Be Read: This is such a lovely look at Robin and how her feelings for Barney completely throw her in a tailspin. The lovely imagery and near-perfect writing makes this well worth the read.

Fic Title: there will be time to chase the sun
Author: londondrowning
Link: http://londondrowning.livejournal.com/85613.html
Rating/Warning(s): pg-13
Genre: general romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Robin's the mother. So I guess Ted's just been dicking his kids around with this whole epic story. The up side is, his son will still one day grow up to look like David Henrie. I'm a little bit ridiculously in love with this story, because unlike 99% of the fandom, Robin/Ted remains my favored ship (besides the OTP of Marshall/Lily, of course). Read this if you're at all interested in their dynamic.

Fic Title: Red Letter Day
Author: care_says

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Crossover, general romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: In which Pam does what she wants, moves to New York, and ends up living in Robin Scherbatsky's spare bedroom. Yeah, that's right. There's fic out there in the world where Pam Beesley becomes Ted's wife, A.K.A. The Mother. And it works. It works so well.

Fic Title: metal heart
Author: [livejournal.com profile] the_spin
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/kartography/3846.html
Rating/Warning(s): adult
Genre: Romance
Special Rec: 21/31

Why This Must Be Read: Written before the PTB mishandled the Barney and Robin storyline on air, [livejournal.com profile] the_spin's story is a natural, in-character evolution of their relationship that is pitch-perfect in every aspect. This Barney and Robin are perfectly imperfect -- terrible at relationships, brilliant at their own non-relationship. metal heart is the story that should have happened.

Fandom Category: Community / How I Met Your Mother
Pairing: Britta Perry/Ted Mosby
Fic Title: somewhere far away (from the sight of me not moving)
Author: [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com]
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/myrifique/1470.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / Language, Community spoilers through season 1, How I Met Your Mother spoilers through season 5
Genre: Romance, Humor, Crossover
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: In the aftermath of everything that happened with Jeff and Annie, Britta gets away from the craziness of Greendale Community College and ends up working at MacClaren's. Ted and Britta are so sweet together, they're not really a pairing I would have thought of on my own but the author did an excellent job of convincing me in this piece.

When Britta calls Abed to tell him she's going on a roadtrip, she can just about hear him nod wisely just before he says "I understand. This is a classic reaction to an unexpected romantic development. Do you want company? You'll need someone to be your sidekick on the wacky adventures you'll no doubt end up on."

Rating/Warning(s): (pg-13)

Why This Must Be Read: Set before the season four finale, this one follows the evolution of Barney and Robin's relationship, perfectly in character and as hilarious as you'd expect. Love the humor so much.

Pairing: Robin Scherbatsky/Barney Stinson (background Stella/Ted Mosby)
Fic Title: The Distraction Reaction
Author: [livejournal.com profile] imsanehonest 
Link: part 1 part 2 part 3
Rating/Warnings: PG, extreme use of the 'distraction reaction', spoilers up to 4x02-The Best Burger in New York
Genre: comedy, romance, minor angst
WIP: no

Why this must be read:

Because honestly, this could be an episode of the show. Throughout this story the characters, their reactions and their dialogue is all spot on. The result is Robin and Barney getting together in a way that is completely believable and Barney's ego remains strong throughout :)
