Why This Must Be Read:

Cozy James and Juliet fic, with James being a stay-at-home dad. This is such an intimate little fic, full of adorable family moments and demonstrating a great "what if" AU spin on the 1970s Dharma canon.
A fill for the "babyfic/kidfic" square on my het_reccers bingo card.

Well, today is my last day as your special reccer. I had a great time doing this, and I hope you've enjoyed it as well! Since I get a bonus leap-year day to rec this month (and, to quote 30 Rock, nothing that happens on leap day counts!), I thought I'd do something a little different today and recommend some of my favorite crossover stories.

'Smash It (Zombies and Time Lords Remix)' by golden_orange - Spaced/Doctor Who )

Why This Must Be Read: One of my absolute fav authors, especially for Lost fics. The fics are consistently compelling and incredibly well-characterized, with amazing imagery. Several of them are achingly raw, and everything is just so fantasically well written - these are fics are have to re-read every once in a while because they set the bar so high on quality. Love, love so much!

Why This Must Be Read: I initially clicked on the link because I love reading stories from an outsider point of view, but [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] does such an amazing job making Molly and Alec characters in their own right that you can't help becoming emotionally invested in them. Don't let the original characters scare you off, this is a great piece that deserves to be read.

Special Rec: 22/45

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is absolutely stunning. Written in the aftermath that encompassed us all after 5x08, it was one of the first of many and still one of the best. Both characters are lovely, in character, and perfectly written. It intertwines backstory and forward-story with remarkable ease. If you love these two, even just a little bit, give it a go. You will not regret it.

Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: romance, aganst, time triveling
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: LONG, exceptionally well-developed, EPIC story. Suspence and dramatic tension are built up in a crescendo that becomes so addictive than once you started reading, you can't stop until you are either exausted or finished. By official summary: Post-S5. Juliet's finally escaped the island, but facing her past, present and future all at the same time is enough to give any seasoned time traveler one hell of a headache. And whatever happened to "whatever happened, happened"?
In other words, this story is about Juliet being her incredibly strong self and surving the trials of time travel before being finally reunited with James and have the joy to introduce him to his son Jonah. Also The 'Others' Juliet befriends and lives with while struck in the past for a time are fascinating, strongly characterized guest stars.

Why This Must Be Read: It's James' story and Sawyer's story and James & Juliet story, all wrapped up in each other and told through a post-series James ' voice-over, putting back together disjoined fragments of his life in Dharma and after the island. This fic will rip you open, leave you bleeding and you will never be sorry about it, because it's just THAT raw and passionately beautiful.

Why This Must Be Read: One shots portraying James and Juliet 's life in Dharma under a realistic light are always a wonderful reading, especially if they combine in some good character' study. Also, this ficlet manages to give off a lovely fatalistic feeling without coming across as a sad fic. The writing is very evocative in its simplicity.

Basically, it's James and Juliet looking through some books one night and discussing why namers matter and why Juliet dislikes hers so.

Why this must be read
: This is a
Post-Reset, Suliet story with undertones of Skate AND Jate.  “Everything disappeared in a flash, much like those he felt as they skipped from time to time, past to present; bleeding noses, bleeding hearts.”  It poetically starts, and the rest of the tale is spun just as poetically, until its very end. A mournful, desperate undercurrent accompanies James’s POV since the bomb exploding brings him and other passengers back to the LAX, every one of them remembering two lifetimes (except those who were dead before the reset, who remember nothing of Island Reality) – at least until he and Juliet find each other again. If you were to read one Sawyer/Juliet story in your life, it should be this one. The plot, the dramatic tension building up, the emotions jumping through the screen as you read, the wondrous way every character voice is captured in here… every detail is just heartbreakingly beautiful. And of course, there’s a sequel just as amazing to read when you are over: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5180058/1/In_Shallow_Seas_We_Sail

Special Rec: 12/30

Why This Must Be Read: Just a lovely story about two people we barely met in the show with too many secrets in their lives as they grow up together. The Lost children tend to get pushed back in the mist of all that happens in show, but at the same time their existence drives more than a few plotlines, so it's nice to have some fic about them. Written before season 6 so there are some discrepancies with canon but nothing that takes away from it.

Fic Title: A Girl That Could Easily Twist Your Mind (But Right Now It Feels So Fine)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gottalovev
Link:http://gottalovev.livejournal.com/295356.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG (a bit of grave-robbing)
Genre: Adventure/Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read:

The sort of flirting is new, too, and frankly Miles doesn't know what to make of it. Oh, he'd love to have a chance at Bela, but he knows she's just way too out of his league for it to happen. Miles pokes his eggs and wishes for this trip to end sooner rather than later before he does something idiotic like fall in love.

Full disclosure: this fic was written for me so that goes a long way in explaining why it’s my all-time favorite. But I don’t just love it because it features my very favorite crossover OTP or because it’s tailored to my own set of kinks, I love it because it’s a layered, plotty, wry road trip fic about Miles Straume falling in love with Bela Talbot.

[livejournal.com profile] gottalovev absolutely nails Miles in this. His snark and his reluctance to fall for anyone is pitch perfect. The way he interacts with Bela is so much fun. Her Bela is amazing as well (and let’s face it, there’s not nearly enough well-written Bela fic in the world.) The whole thing culminates in my favorite fic kiss ever. It involves rain, mud, and an open grave.

It’s a wonderful, fun fic with a unique ship and I can’t seem to get enough of it.

Rating/Warning(s): R, SPOILERS FOR THE SERIES FINALE
Genre: AU (sideways!verse), episode-related
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Summary: In another dimension this is exactly what’s happening.

First off, THIS HAS SPOILERS FOR THE SERIES FINALE. I really am not sure how to rec this fic while avoiding said spoilers, so I'll keep this brief. Beautiful. In-Character. Warming. Perfectly in tune with the sideways!verse, but it's still them, the Saywer/Juliet that we fell in love with in s5. Read it if you love this pairing, because after that finale, you kinda need to find out what happened afterwards and this fic is a lovely exploration of that.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 , some dark themes
Genre: AU, Domestic fic, Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: [livejournal.com profile] valhalla37 is the queen of Dan/Charlotte fics, she does amazing things with the pairing. This fic retells season five from the end of “This Place is Death” onwards. It’s by turns sweet, angsty and sometimes down right scary, but ultimately it’s a very hopeful fic. We follow Daniel and Charlotte as they build a life together in the seventies. The details are stunning and full of realism and the end is far more harrowing than anything we saw in “The Incident”.

He can't fight the grin even though it feels foreign, like his muscles don't remember how, and Charlotte smiles in return, relaxing back into his embrace, sagging against his shoulder. It's a quiet refrain, again and again, until the others find them -- filthy and exhausted and sharing weary, almost-relieved sighs -- even when they stumble across that woman, Amy, and her husband, even when they wake up half-bound in the Dharma rec centre, Horace glowering above them.

We made it -- and this, in all of the things gone so wrong since the freighter left Fiji in its wake, since his mind first sparked and caught at the words time travel, he does believe.
