Byzantium: Iterations of Burn
Boston: Running to Stand Still
Rating/Warning(s): M/R. Warnings for violence, death, and attempted suicide.
Genre: Drama, very AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This series leaves me absolutely breathless and is one of my all-time favorite Syd/Sark stories. The characterization is fantastic--the author is unflinching in her portrayal of these ruthless, complex, and morally gray super spies. Highly recommended.

Day 01:  A fic for your current favorite ship

Fandom Category:  Suits
Pairing:  Donna Paulsen/Harvey Specter
Fic Title:  Tangential
Author:  [livejournal.com profile] abvj
Link:  HERE
Rating/Warning(s):  PG
Genre:  Romance, friendship, angst
WIP?:  No

Why This Must Be Read:  This fic outlines all these different things Donna and Harvey know about each other, and it really underlines that no matter how they feel about each other, they're best friends and they will always know each other better than anyone else.  It's really a beautiful look at their relationship.

Day 01 - A fic for your current favorite ship.

Fandom Category:  Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing:  Molly Hooper/Sherlock Holmes
Fic Title:  The Full House
Author:  Emcee
Link:  here
Rating/Warning(s):  PG-13.  SPOILERS for The Reichenbach Fall.
Genre:  Drama, Romance, Action
WIP?:  No

Why This Must Be Read:  Fantastic take on the series post-Reichenbach, directly following Sherlock's fake suicide.  Sherlock decides the safest place for him to stay is Molly's flat and living in close quarters with her brings all types of feelings and frustrations to the surface.  Plus, an excellently-written Irene Adler drops in and flirts teasingly with both Sherlock and Molly!  A great read.

Day 01 - A fic for your current ship

Fandom Category: Hunger Games
Pairing: Katniss Everdeen/Peeta Mellark, Joanna/Haymitch
Fic Title: Hope in the Darkness that I will see the Light
Author: deathmallow
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Rated M. Author warned for Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death, Rape/Non-Con
Genre: AU, Drama
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: While still gritty, it's more hopeful than the original. A very believable pairing, goes on forever, and there's more in the universe.

Fandom Category: Batman Beyond
Pairing: Terry McGinnis/Dana Tan
Fic Title: Through a Dark Mirror
Author: aiwac
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): rated T, author gave no warnings but there is canon character death and violence appropriate for the original canon.
Genre: Drama
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the first stories that truly sold me on Terry/Dana, who suffered from inconsistent writing in the last two seasons of the show. The writer tied the entire canon together in an interesting way while making the characters seem strong and real, even though they're flawed.

This is actually a shared account, so throughout we'll be each choosing our answer.

Genre: Hurt/Comfort, Introspection

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is difficult to pinpoint and describe. It is Katniss healing in the aftermath of everything that has happened to her. It is at turns hopeful, sorrowful, disturbing, and poignant.

Pairing: Katniss Everdeen/Peeta Mellark
Fic Title: If You Found Me at Last
Author: monroeslittle
Rating/Warning(s): M(+), adult themes, sex, violence
Genre: Angst, hurt/comfort
WIP?: No. 13,000~ words.

Why This Must Be Read:

This is a long one-shot, and written so beautifully. It takes its time getting Katniss and Peeta to their happy ending, winding all these important little moments together to tell the story of their lives after they return to Twelve.

And he doubts she'll ever apologise for what happened, for the way she faked her feelings, bounced back and forth between he and Gale, refused to admit any kind of affection for him for so long. She doesn't need to apologise, and she won't, because Katniss doesn't really use words.

His father used to call him a man of words. If he is, that makes Katniss a woman of ways.

It's in what she does, not what she says. He wouldn't have her any other way.

Pairing: Katniss Everdeen/Gale Hawthorne
Fic Title: Knightingale
Author: DBlaZe
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7966677/1/Knightingale
Rating/Warning(s): M; Some sex and violence (equal to an R rated film)
Genre: Adventure/Romance
WIP?: YES (author has posted 20 chapters of an estimated 40...)

Why This Must Be Read: I am just now starting to read fic in some alternative fandoms of mine and found this just in the last 3 days. It is a well written and well plotted AU version of "Catching Fire" (with some parts of the original book kept in place) wherein President Snow has announced a significant rule change for the Quarter Quell; rather than the previous winners going in, a 'regular' reaping will occur with the exception that each reaped person will need to chose a partner to join them in the games. And along with that a not so veiled threat to Katniss results in Prim being reaped a second time... and Gale volunteering to be her partner, causing two of the people Katniss cares for the most to be sent to near certain death. In the midst of this Katniss and Gale start to move closer... I don't want to add anything more here but this is very definitely worth the read (there are 379 reviews for 20 chapters and he earns every single one) and hopefully more reviews will speed him to finish that much sooner!

Pairing: Katniss Everdeen/Peeta Mellark
Fic Title: We Have Not Touched the Stars
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zombieboyband
Link: AO3 | LJ
Rating/Warning(s): R - torture, sex, intentionally triggering a character, ptsd
Genre: Character development/angst/drama
WIP?: No; 11803 words

Why This Must Be Read:

"Sometimes I miss the shackles," Peeta says.

Peeta trusts Katniss enough to break him and put him back together, so that's what he asks for. Rough and tender, hard and sweet: love is complicated.

Okay, so I admit that when I read the line in Mockingjay about the shackles bringing Peeta back to himself, I immediately thought, "There has to be fic based on that line alone." And there is, and it's amazing.

It's by no means a light read, and if violence and sex aren't your thing you really need to stay away, but oh my gosh, this just works. Peeta and Katniss are both written flawlessly - Katniss especially - and it's so hard for them. I love this fic so much. I went looking for something like this and found better results than I had dared to hope for.

Pairing: Annie Cresta/Finnick Odair
Fic Title: Treading Water
Author: sabaceanbabe
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/316078/chapters/507670
Rating/Warning(s): Mature. Warnings for implied self-harm, purposeful self-harm, suicide, past and present situations of dubious consent, forced drug use, intentional drug use, references to past rape, and something that could maybe be considered domestic violence (between a main character and a minor character).
Genre: Drama, Epic.
WIP?: yes

Why This Must Be Read: They don't tell you when you go into the arena that the lucky ones are those who die. This story gives a strong sense of characterization to both main characters, as well as their deep connection to one another. I love how the language flows, and the story really does a fantastic job of flushing out the story of Annie and Finnick. It's long, at over a 110k already, and it's still a WIP but if you're a fan of this pairing, give it a go!

Rating/Warning(s): R, spoilers up til Mockingjay
Genre: Five things fic
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Five things that almost happened to Gale and Katniss, because according to the odds they could have happened. I love the AUs, and honestly it was only a twisted fate that made it so these two didn't have a life together. They're tragic and the possibilities of them are all the more painful. Lovely read.

One more fic. Peeta/Katniss. )

Author: [livejournal.com profile] nicalyse

Rating/Warning(s): hard R
Genre: Hurt/Comfort
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

Part of what I love most about Johanna/Finnick is their friendship-with-benefits vibe. The way they genuinely care for each other and help each other through what the Capitol does to them. This is that fic.

They met for the first time on her Victory Tour. He acted as her escort at the dinner in her honor in District 4, outwardly appearing to be everything that she'd seen of Finnick Odair on television over the years. It was the way that he acted when no one else was watching that made her like him. The jokes whispered at the expense of the other guests, how he pointed out the people to avoid and rescued her when she wasn't able to get away on her own.

Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: One-shot, character study
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Though this is more of a reflection on Peeta as an artist than it is an outright het fic, his characterization is so tied to Katniss that it seems possible to mention her name just once in 900 words and still make note of the pairing. This one-shot is a beautiful examination of what painting means to Peeta and how his artistic vision colors his view of a dark, messy world.

Why This Must Be Read: A gorgeous ficlet that makes ghostly presences of Katniss and Peeta as they attempt to make room for their fears as they cling to each other. Haunting and unforgettable.

Why This Must Be Read: She was bred for slaughter. He was made for glory. Alliances are a funny thing, you see. 'Cause I walked out of the movie thinking I saw something between these two, and hell, there's already fic. God bless fandom. A very intense, brilliant look at what it's like to be raised to be a Career. It's an honor, you see.

Deftly written.

Genre: post-Mockingjay. Hurt/comfort.

Why This Must Be Read: So, now I'm converted to Johanna/Gale, and this is the fic why. The both of them, after the war, growing together. This author has several Hunger Games fics, each with different pairings (I recced the Johanna/Finnick one the other day), and she has a deft had at writing this world. It breaks your heart and then mends in its own way.

Give it a shot. It's worth it.

Fic Title: And Our Dreams Will Break the Boundaries of Our Fears
Author: electrumqueen
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/113640?view_adult=true
Rating/Warning(s): Mature. Spoilers for Mockingjay. Dubious consent (nothing graphic, but heavily implied). Hurt-minimal comfort. General THG unhappiness (incl. marked alcoholism). President Snow, who requires warnings in and of himself.
Genre: Pre-series. Hurt-minimal comfort. drama
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Johanna and Finnick flirt with rebellion, and learn that the Capitol has teeth. Oh, my god. This fic is so well written, and the premise gives you chills but you can't look away. It enraptures you. Johanna gets called for the so-called "duty" that Snow foists upon her after she becomes a victor, and the friendship that springs up with Finnick is wonderful and deep and honest, and my personal canon. It isn't a true romance/pairing fic, because Finnick and Johanna truly see each other as just best friends. But the way the Capital tugs and pulls at them - oh, just read it. It's really good.

I am so happy I can finally answer a special request! I hope whoever requested this pairing enjoys the fic. I love rare pairings the most, but know how hard it is to find good fics.

Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: PWP
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:

This short fic explores the pain and trauma that Finnick and Katniss shared, and in few words manages to give us a realistic version of how them getting together might have happened. I only wish I knew who the writer was so I could leave more thoughtful feedback.

Pairing: Katniss Everdeen/Haymitch Abernathy
Fic Title: Darling, Believe Me (Things Stay the Same)
Author: Avox
Link: http://sirenalley.dreamwidth.org/725.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13. Violence, references to character death. Age difference.
Genre: Angst, Romance

Why This Must Be Read:

It's hard to find fic for this ship at all and I was very pleased to find this one. It's a post-Mockingjay AU, in which Katniss has lost everything and only Haymitch is there to catch her fall. Except of course he doesn't do that at all, because he's Haymitch. But as we see from canon he's not completely incapable of serious thought or of some form of redemption either. As Katniss heals what they find together here is believable and well-characterized.
