Day 31 - BONUS - Wildcard/Catch up on a missed day
During this month, I recced for a different pairing each day, but I still seem to have a few pairings for which I haven't recced. I've limited myself to ten of them, but there's more. And yes, now that I realise that, I'm quite afraid by the amount of shipping I do....

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Sophie Devereaux/Nathan Ford
Fic Title: There's nothing new under the sun
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alinaandalion
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, graphic sex
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I have to say that for the past few weeks Leverage pretty much pwned my mind (yes I've just discovered this show and it's awesome), and while I love both Official Couples, I just can't live without Nate/Sophie. This fic is beautiful and it shows the progression of their relationship after San Lorenzo. Nate and Sophie are just spot on and this fic is a must-read!

More under the cut for The West Wing, The Pretender, NCIS, CSI, Avengers/Iron Man, Ringer and Unforgettable. )

Mods, can tags be added for 'ship: kate harper/will bailey', 'ship: catherine parker/sydney', 'fandom: unforgettable' and 'ship: carrie wells/al burns'? :P
merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (michael's team burn notice)

* Day 21 - A rare pairing fic.
Fandom Category: Torchwood
Pairing: Toshiko Sato/Ianto Jones
Fic Title: Impolitic
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kayliemalinza
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; dubcon (sex pollen trope)
Genre: smut
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This is a smutty classic in Torchwood fandom. Tosh and Ianto are dosed with sex pollen. The only thing to do is let them have at it.

* Day 22 - A canon pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: River Song/Eleventh Doctor
Fic Title: Postcards from Atlantis
Author: marginaliana
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: action/adventure, fluff
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: The Doctor and River have adventures and send letters to Amy and Rory. It's a fun read; it's like the postcards are coming to life before your eyes.

more DW and TW, OUAT, Leverage, Boardwalk Empire, Burn Notice, Luther, Suits )

Mods, I need the following tags:
Toshiko Sato/Ianto Jones

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.

10 more recs below the cut. Fandoms include Glee, Hunger Games, Leverage, Suits, and Wicked )

merryghoul: River sonic screwdriver comics (michael and fiona)
[personal profile] merryghoul
* 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.

I just did a Shipper Manifesto on this ship, so I'm using one of the recs that didn't make it onto that list. If you want to see those recs, you can find them HERE.

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Eliot Spencer
Fandom #: 15
Special Recs: 53

Fic Title: People Like Us
Author: serenelystrange
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5033047/1/
Rating/Warning(s): K/G
Genre: Pre-ship, Friendship
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 53

Why This Must Be Read: This is Parker's thoughts as she observes Eliot's interactions with the rest of the team. She comes to realize how alike the two of them are, and why they need more than the others. I like this view into Parker's head...it recognizes she is not normal, but doesn't make her completely mental either. It's sweet without being syrupy and accepting rather than angst-filled.
[identity profile] death-of-dreams.livejournal.com
Fandom: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Eliot Spencer; side Nate/Sophie
Title: Call it a Tribe
Genre: Romance, Comedy, AU
author: chasingtides
Rating: PG13
Summary: Part of the 'St. Nicholas' Home for Troubled Youth' Series (which is fantastic to read) - an AU where Sophie and Nate adopt Eliot and Parker (teenagers) and little Hardison (7 years old) and the family they make. In this particular piece, Parker is very determined not to go to prom.
Warnings: Underage romance; 
Why it must be read: Sheer adorableness. Laughter is easy to find and it's just so...oddly fitting, the way this family unit reminds you of the one the real adults have in the show but as younger characters in a different situation. Even if you're not wild about the pairing, read this series, because it's too funny and cute to miss out on.

The last admin post included a request for Parker/anyone Leverage fics, so here are some of my favorites:

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Hardison
Fic Title: Beginning at the End
Author: [livejournal.com profile] ladylioness
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: fluff
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This is a short piece about a potential future for Parker and Hardison. It's a sweet little story that will leave a smile on the face of any Parker/Hardison shipper.


Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Eliot
Fic Title: Breathe
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tommyhanson
Rating/Warning(s): G/PG
Genre: angst
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This could be read as a friendship fic rather than a romantic relationship, but it's all in your perspective. It's a beautifully written insight into Eliot, and why he and Parker probably have the most in common than any other members of the team.

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Alec Hardison
Fic Title: Untitled
Author: [livejournal.com profile] longsufferingly
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): Not rated – I’d give it a PG
Genre: Humor
WIP?: No
Special rec: 24/25

Why This Must Be Read: You might have noticed a theme with most of my recs – I like funny. This is set during the first season after The Wedding Job...Hardison asks Eliot to be his wingman and find out if Parker likes him. How desperate do you have to be to ask Eliot to be your go between?

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Alec Hardison
Fic Title: Understanding and Feeling
Author: [livejournal.com profile] emily64cooper
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angsty
WIP?: No
Special rec: 25/25

Why This Must Be Read: On the other hand, I also like fics that make me go “aww” and sniffle a bit (must be the dust in here). This one is set right after this season’s The Hot Potato Job…Parker is learning how to deal with feelings, hers and other people’s. It’s not easy to love Parker, but it’s not easy to be Parker, either. This season of Leverage has been all about her journey toward the light, and this fic captures that perfectly.
Hope you’ve enjoyed my recs this month…it’s been fun highlighting some of my faves. Good luck to October’s special reccer!

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Alec Hardison
Fic Title: Freefall
Author: [livejournal.com profile] wishfulaces
Link:  http://wishfulaces.livejournal.com/319080.html
Rating/Warning(s): None
Genre: episode fill ins, romance, humor, drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:

They got each other’s backs.

Oh, this fic. The Hardison voice is fantastic. The way he understands Parker is sublime. Great Nate cameo. Pop culture references of win. What's not to love? But mostly for me what is magical about this fic is that it manages to provide a sense of resolution, of moving forward, without losing who these characters are at the core. Perfect fill ins for "The Grave Danger Job" and "The Queen's Gambit Job". Enjoy!

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Alec Hardison
Fic Title: Lock & Key
Author: [livejournal.com profile] arobynsung
Link: LiveJournal
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Flangst (which I assume is 'fluff' and 'angst'?)
WIP?: No
Special rec: 7/25

Why This Must Be Read: From Parker's quote in The Beantown Bailout Job comparing people to locks…you have to take your time and be fiddly. The author connects several small moments between Parker and Hardison, showing the truth in Parker's words. It's sweet and funny and perfectly in character.
[identity profile] gorengal.livejournal.com
Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Alec Hardison
Fic Title: Somebody's Crying
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hannasus
Link: Archive of Our Own or LJ
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Humor, Angst
WIP?: No
Special rec: 1/25

Why This Must Be Read: Alec Hardison loves Parker and he is willing to wait for her to figure out what love means. In this story, Eliot knows Parker is crying in the ladies room and he figures Hardison is to blame. What did Hardison do to make Parker cry?

The author does a fabulous job recreating the voices of the characters and blending humor with a touch of angst.

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Eliot Spencer
Fic Title: 5 Times Eliot Was Subtle and 1 Time Parker Wasn't
Author: ASiriuslyGleekyTimeLord
Link: FF.Net
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance/Humor
Special Rec: 36/48

Why This Must Be Read: It's really so adorable to see Eliot noticing all those small (and weird) things about Parker and then how he goes about making her happy. Those moments build up their relationship in quite a believeable way and the last chapter is the true highlight.

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Eliot Spencer
Fic Title: Not Far to Go (Series)
Author: Dance_With_Me_Yo
Link: FF.Net
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Romance
Special Rec: 37/48

Why This Must Be Read: It starts out with Parker/Hardison but that one moment when it all changes is making your skin tingle and your brain melt. Seriously.

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Eliot/OFC
Fic Title: The Library Job
Author: a striking mind
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6313946/1/The_Library_Job
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Romance/Adventure/Drama

Summary: The Team have been called in to help stop two greedy men from destroying the Boston Public Library. The team however gets more than they bargained for with librarian, Charlotte Livingston. How can the team handle two cons and a nosy red head?

Why This Must Be Read:  So I'm as skeptical of an OFC as anyone, but as I'm currently writing an Eliot/OFC fic I like to give them a  shot. And what slam-dunk this is! Charlotte is intelligent, witty and fierce but has a great balance of having that soft underside. Her and Eliot fight like a cat and a dog and it's really fun to watch. The case itself is interesting and I love the fumbles she has written for the team. The true gem here is the dialogue and the slow way she's getting Charlotte and Eliot to realize there's more to each other than the eye sees. 

<Mods, there is no Eliot/OFC tag. Hell, I'm not even sure we tag ofc's.>

 Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Eliot/Parker
Fic Title: Not Gone Fishin'
Author: shabbytiger
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7203471/1/Not_Gone_Fishin
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Romance/Adventure/Humor/Drama
WIP?: Y, and as a total bonus she updates almost everyday. 

Summary: The team has some time off, and Hardison begs Eliot to take Parker with him on his fishing trip so she doesn't get in trouble. So now, Parker's in the truck as they road trip to the wedding Eliot was actually going to. But the two seem to keep stirring up these feelings..

Why This Must Be Read: This is funny and smart and sexy and interesting and oh the tension is wonderful. We get a little backstory for Parker, a whole bunch of roadside antics and pit stops and even a few Bucket list mentions.I  get so excited whenever she updates - which is almost every day. She creates this amazing tension between Parker and Eliot for being attracted to each other while Parker's technically dating Hardison; it's like angst-lite. Totally wonderful.

Title: compasses point north, i only point to you
Author: [livejournal.com profile] cartography
Link: Fic right over here
Rating/Warnings: T
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 18/20

Why This Must Be Read: This author just gets how messed up and tangled up with each other Nate and Sophie are. She gets their relationship so well, and writes it so well. And the language and prose of her stories are amazing as well, which just adds to the rec. I love how she spans almost the whole timeline of their relationship as well.

Genre: Angst, UST/Friendship
WIP?: No (2,900 words)

Why This Must Be Read: The premise is intriguing: Sophie gets lost in the maze of her ficticious identities. I particulary love the intense way Nate's POV is written... watching everything through his eyes, I was completely sucked in.
