WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Secretly married fic is my kryptonite; add Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak to the equation and I'm there. The author does a wonderful job incorporating all the tweets and the mixture of humor and angst really works for this pairing.

BJ would tell people, if they were telling people, that this happened because of a series of escalating dares.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] hihoplastic

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, angst, friendship
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: First, let it be clear that I don't read RPF... except when I do! (actually there's only one other pairing for which I read RPF: Torri/Joe) This is real people we're talking about, but my mind helps me by making me think about them as characters. Second, this fic is just fantastic! I've stumbled on it and I've read all the chapters that were posted at the time in one go. My dear [livejournal.com profile] hihoplastic just knows how to write them, and it's awesome! And yes, it's a WIP, but it's updated quite regularly.

Mods, can I have a Alex Kingston/Matt Smith tag pretty please??

Day 13- A fic for your favorite Real Life Pairing

Fandom Category: RPF
Pairing: Scarlett Johansson/Jeremy Renner
Fic Title: You and Me and New York City
Author: wendywatson
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/420394
Rating/Warning(s): E/NC-17. Warnings for sexy times
Genre: Fluff
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I am utterly and completely charmed by Scarlett and Jeremy's chemistry and mutual adoration. The amount of time I've invested in watching all their interviews and reblogging all their gifsets on tumblr is a little worrying. I know I'm not alone in shipping them so I'm a little baffled by how little fic has been written for them. Why have you failed me like this, fandom? Whyyyy??? Finding this story, therefore, absolutely made my life, and everything about it is glorious. The banter, especially, is fabulous--oh dear god, the banter. I can absolutely picture Scarlett and Jeremy saying and doing everything in this story. This fic is an absolute delight and must read. Go forth and enjoy.

Fandom Category: Political RPF
Pairing: Michelle Obama/Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton/Bill Clinton, Jill Biden/Joe Biden, Amy Rule/Rahm Emanuel, Nancy Pelosi/Paul Pelosi
Fic Title: These Crackpots and These Women (Or, Five Things That May or May Not Have Happened This Inauguration Day)
Author: voodoochild
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/68309
Rating/Warning(s): Teen.
Genre: Drama, character study
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Five men and women at the front lines of the Obama administration.

Uh, because I don't even live in the US but the cuteness of Michelle and Barak Obama are second to none? (Statistical proof that is in no way statistical). I never read RPF or ship in RL, but I love this story all the same. Aside from the cuteness, this story features five female voices that are so strong and distinct, like they are in real life, and I can't love it enough for that.

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.

Author: leiascully

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.

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.

Fandom Category: Actor RPF AU
Pairing: Eva Green/James Purefoy
Fic Title: i left you behind in that holy city
Author: [livejournal.com profile] fated_addiction
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): unrated; minor violent imagery
Genre: fusion with The Borgias; angst, romance, horror
WIP?: No; 5,401 words.

Why this must be read: This is one of the most original fan fictions I have read in a very long time, even among other RPF AU. The story is only about 5,000 words yet it seems much longer due to the intricate layers and tight narrative structure. The chemistry and history between Eva and James is convoluted but not confusing, as the reader is shown exactly who they are — as individuals and as a part of a familial unit. The writing style is subtle and evocative; I found myself reading more than a few passages several times.

The Church is well involved in the affairs of the living and the dead; it takes a perfect construction of acceptance and the cunning to understand how to navigate between both worlds – for those of them that exist among the living and the dead. Eva, however ageless, does not agree or participate. There is something to be said about watching with patience.


James leans into her, pressing her against the man, against him, his free hand coming to rest against her hip. He pulls at the fabric of her dress. "I love you," he says, and kisses her. This will be slow and thoughtful for her; he doesn't have to say it. She laughs though and he swallows the sound, biting her lip hard.

And that's just a taste; do not miss this story.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for affair/infidelity, non-AU, sex
Genre: angst, pwp
WIP?: No; 4,866 words.

Why This Must Be Read: This is blazing hot, and while this is definitely a Sandy/Jensen fic, Jared and Danneel are ghosts in the bedroom — adding a mystical quality to their affair. One of the best het fics in this fandom because it hits emotional kinks, entertainment, and the prose is amazing.

Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: first time, romance
WIP?: No. 34,000 words.

Why This Must Be Read: I am such a sucker for RPF that is as non-AU as possible, or musicians are musicians et cetera and this is as good as it gets for a story that includes small details of life in the limelight and how one may meet and fall in love. I've always loved [livejournal.com profile] otherbella's version of David Cook and now her portrayal of Adele is just as nuanced. The sexual tension between them sizzles and their banter will make you smile.

Rating/Warning(s): PG, RPF, Adultery

Special Rec: 71/100

Why This Must Be Read: Every RPF story [livejournal.com profile] phrenitis writes is pure gold and this one is no exception. In it, Joe accompanies Torri on her road-trip back to LA after her departure from the show, and gradually comes to realise... well. Lovely, lovely writing and characterisations make this one of my favourite all-time Torri/Joe fics.

Genre: Smut, Angst
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 21 of 34

Why This Must Be Read: So somewhere along the line I kind of fell in love with the Amy Poehler/Seth Meyers thing. This doesn't make a whole lot of sense when you consider that I am a huge Will Arnett fan and absolutely adore Will and Amy's relationship in real life, but fictionally? Yeah, I'm all over the Amy/Seth. There are only a handful of stories written with this pairing, and this is one of my favorites, weaving together the day-in-the-life details of working for a show like Saturday Night Live with a story about a relationship that is destined to never be more than it is.

Pairing: Anne Boleyn/Henry Percy
Fic Title: Noli Me Tangere
Author: athousandwinds
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/154250
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A brilliant short fic where two former lovers meet again, both having been pushed far away from each other, only to find their way back. I absolutely adore this story because it focuses on a great part of Anne Boleyn's history that The Tudors completely cut from the show -- her romance with Henry Percy, the heir to the Earl of Northumberland. It was almost a fairytale romance for them, only to have it shattered by a multitude of parties -- Percy's father, who had already arranged a marriage for Percy, Cardinal Wolsey, who had also already planned for Percy's marriage and for Anne's as well, Anne's family, and quite possibly even the king himself. An excellent look into the minds of two people who'd once loved each other, but whom neither got happily ever after.

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's mostly dialogue and that dialogue is excellent. David gets all existential about pink and Gillian is worried about Scully's emotional state and their dynamic is as weirdly close and oddly prickly as it ought to be.

Why This Must Be Read: Because there isn't enough for for this pairing, but what there is, is amazing. And this fic is amazing. It's funny and hot and captures the weird bond that Idol seems to create among its participants and features terrible jokes and makes fun of David Cook's terrible fashion sense. It is excellent.

Why This Must Be Read: This is the BEST fic. It's set during the time period when BJ Novak went off to film Inglorious Bastards and the show sent him off to Thailand. Abscence is supposed to make the heart grow fonder, and this fic would agree. Really, just read it.
