Day 12 - A fic for your favorite Animated pairing.

Fandom Category: Sailor Moon
Pairing: Usagi Tsukino/Mamoru Chiba
Fic Title: A Million Years Shown On Our Faces
Author: tosca1390
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, a bit of angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is set in the manga-verse after the battle against Metallia and just before Usagi is reunited with the Senshi. This fic shows the aftermath of the battle for Usagi/Mamoru, but there's also a beautiful scene between Usagi and Minako about trust. Really cute fic.

Pairing: Story 1 - Ami Mizuno/Zoisite; Story 2 - Usagi Tsukino/Mamoru Chiba & Senshi/Shitennou
Fandom #: 19
Special Recs: 60-61

Pairing: Ami Mizuno/Zoisite
Fic Title: Don't Look Away
Author: Nalonzo

Rating/Warning(s): K/G
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 60

Why This Must Be Read: I enjoyed this ficlet because it shows Ami in all her shyness. Zoisite is constantly catching her eye only for her to blush and look away. The story is a brief look into Ami's mind as she realizes her attraction to the general. It's short and sweet.

Fic Title: Less Than Perfect
Author: Spriteofice

Rating/Warning(s): Teen/PG
Genre: Adventure
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I saw that someone wanted SM recs for Usagi/Mamoru, so I figured I'd put up my favorite. This one is a 58,000 word story, so nice and long. Basically, Usagi is growing up, and her friends are not keeping up with the changes. They still see her as that clumsy, scatterbrained little girl. She is remembering herself and has to decide who to trust with her secret. What is Mamoru's test? How do the Senshi earn her trust back? I would recommend this for its unique look on the relationships between past and present, between who they were and who they are.

5 Multifandom AU recs (because that's how I roll).

Fandom Category: X-Men (movie-verse)
Pairing: Jean Grey/Scott Summers
Fic Title: How the Leopard Changed Her Spots
Author: Minisinoo
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1647028/1/HOW_THE_LEOPARD_CHANGED_HER_SPOTS
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: AU, Power swap
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: So this is the 3rd time I've rec'd Min's work on this comm I regret nothing! but this fit so well with the current challenge that I couldn't NOT rec it. This is a power swap AU of X-Men 1 so everyone (except Professor X) has someone else's power. In this story Jean has Mystique's mutation and fights on Magneto's side, while Scott has Cypher's mutation, which allows him to learn, understand, and speak any kind of language (e.g. spoken language, body language, computer language, etc.). He's also deaf. It is so, so fascinating to see how these fundamental changes in mutation/ability shape both Jean and Scott. They're so different to their canon counterparts, but at the same time, the core of each of these characters remains. It includes an excellent and sensitive portrayal of living with a hearing disability, as well as a rousing and impassioned defense of diversity, tolerance, and compassion delivered by Scott to the Senate during the hearing about the Mutant Registration bill. So. Good. Go read it! Now!

Four more recs from FFVII, Twilight, and Sailor Moon )

May I have a Yuffie/Vincent tag, please? And I guess an Ami Mizuno/OC tag since that got 2 recs. OC pairing tags for Makoto Kino, Minako Aino, and Rei Hino would be lovely but not necessary.

Fandom Category: Sailor Moon
Pairing: Minako Aino/Kunzite
Fic Title: Normal Enough
Author: wickedtrue
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/68772
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angst, reincarnation, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Minako and Kunzite were my absolute favorite pairing when I was in this fandom, and this story really highlights why. The author writes the story through Mamoru's eyes, allowing us to see the bond between Kunzite and Minako, while still leaving it full of mystery. So many questions lie unanswered, but in this case, that's okay. In addition, the author's portrayal of Minako and Kunzite are excellent. Minako is a perfect blend of her many personality attributes (bubbly, silly, but also serious and capable at the same time), and Kunzite is also compelling too, in his quiet way. That he's completely unfazed by Minako's more eccentric quirks is hilarious as well. A lovely read.

Pairing: Usagi Tuskino/Mamoru Chiba
Fic Title: Untitled Series
Author: [livejournal.com profile] fated_addiction
Link: http://fated-addiction.livejournal.com/tag/series%3A%20untitled
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, superhero, drama, romance

Why This Must Be Read: Right, so [livejournal.com profile] fated_addiction just writes phenomenal fic in general and especially for Usagi/Mamoru, but this is is just out of this world. She builds an AU within the canon that exists in the manga and manages to pull out some of the most amazing Usagi characterisation ever. It's a bit of a What If verse and Usagi starts on the journey to becoming Sailor Moon a bit differently with the players switched around some, but even with all these changes one thing remains: she's the glue and that's so true for the fic too. Usagi binds this fic together and her relationship with Mamoru during this journey of self discovery highlights ever.

But really, just read all of [livejournal.com profile] fated_addiction's Usagi/Mamoru fic if you get a chance.

Genre: AU, general romance
WIP?: nope

Why This Must Be Read: So it's obvious I really like AUs. And if it wasn't I REALLY LIKE THEM, sorry! [livejournal.com profile] tosca1390 also has really excellent fic for these two too, but I love AUs! This AU is currently two fics, which is why I'm reccing both at once and this is a great one because I'm not honestly a big Sailor Moon fic reader for Usagi/Mamoru but I saw this one and it's so perfect. Political AUs for this narrative should happen more often because it lends itself so well to what already exists for the characters. Usagi is unchanged here, just older, but still on a mission to do good and make a change. Mamoru is still on the path to be a doctor and thanks to these paths and their friends their paths cross and it's the loveliest. Their relationship here is so supportive and it just flows. Also I love the roles the other senshi play in this AU and how the Dark Kingdom is introduced. Perfection!

Fic Title: Choices
Author: harukami
Link: http://harukami.livejournal.com/300228.html
Rating/Warning(s): G, Spoilers for the episode where the senshi all go to the future
Genre: Romance/Adventure/Drama

Why This Must Be Read: I stumbled into this fic by accident, drawn in by the author's presentation of it... and well, I was charmed in a very odd, bitter way. This is set in anime verse, and it takes in account every inconsistency in Usagi and Mamoru characters to weave connections and explanations that make a FRIGHTENING lot of sense. It's a mature Endymion POV  on how Crystal Tokyo and his future with the Queen Serenity came to be, despite Usagi and Mamoru's immaturities and weaknesses.

While the razor-sharp edge of this piece hurt a little the romantic in me I can't deny it has a bitter, dark allure. It should be read by any and every fan of the pairing or of the Fandom.

Pairing: Serena Tsukino/Darien Chiba
Fic Title: When Dawn Comes
Author: kimra
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/729050/27/When_Dawn_Comes
Rating/Warning(s): M, sexual situations
Genre: romance, aganst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:It's seldomly you find a poetically written version of Sailor Moon, written for a more 'adult' public. This story goes AU after episode 32 of the anime (The Tuxedo Melvin episode where Sailor Moon loses the scouts only Rainbow Crystal) and it has Serena waking up naked inside Darien's bed, with only fragmented memories of the night that brought her there. Unfortunately, Darien has no more clear idea of what occurred between them. And so they must both deal with feelings of loss, violation, guilt and shame while trying to deal with this new connection between them and hiding the truth from the Scouts.

Great psychological evolution of the characters through it all.

WIP?: yep. It does get updated but not as regularly as I would like.
Special Rec: 22/30

Why This Must Be Read: This one is also an AU, but a darker one. The relationships here aren't as pretty and neat as the previous rec. I will be honest and say there are somethings I don't fully agree with in this AU, but I find it paints such an interesting picture of how the Silver Millennium could have gone and it's politics. None of the romances, except Serenity and Endymion arguably, happen all that happily this time around. (Honestly, they're all stupid in love with each other. Emphasis on the stupid.) The characterisations are fresh for the setting and there are never enough Silver Millennium fics out there.

Why This Must Be Read
: Reccing this is like coming out of a fandom closet. Sailor Moon and the senshi/shittenou pairings were my first serious ships AND fandom ever. I love all of them so much and they are like the otps of otps to me. This is definitely one of the lighter and funner fics of them out there as they usually have to do a lot with the Shittenou making amends for their ~dark pasts and betraying their King. But! This is an AU! A wonderful AU that lets you see how they all would interact if they were just normal people with normal problems. What I love most about this is how distinct each character is and how all the relationships are intertwined and built upon. Mina is struggling artist who thanks to her friend Darien (Mamoru's English name) meets Kevin (Kunzite's English name here) and low and behold LOVE OCCURS. Of course things are never that simple when you bring their families, their lifestyles and exes.

VO1's other fic, As We Were, is also a staple in the senshi/shittenou world imho. Fun and bringing in more elements from the show/manga it is definitely worth a read, don't let ff.net mean formatting deter you!

* Because of the fact that a lot of these characters have Japanese AND English names I'll ask the mods to tell me which they prefer. I've used the Japanese versions here.
** The gents in this fic and others have American or different Japanes names than used in the tags in most fics where they are included which usually has to do with the ~rebirth they undergo.
*** Also the Minako Aino/Kunzite, Rei Hino/Jedite, Ami Mizuno/Zoicite (not Zoycite, who is more commonly known as the dubbed America female version of the character), Makoto Kino/Nephrite are all usually considered, and clumped together as, the Senshi/Shittenou pairings in their corner of the fandom I think it would be fine when tagging this fic (and maybe future fics) to use senshi/shittenou as a tag for these four pairings. More often than not they are included together anyway. Mod's call, of course.

So there are a grand total of no Sailor Moon rec's in this community. Which is depressing in and of itself. So I present you with three Sailor Moon Rec's - all Senshi/Shitennou (or Senshi/Generals, Scouts/Generals if you prefer) - meaning Makoto(Lita)/Nephrite; Minako(Mina)/Kunzite; Ami(Amy)/Zoicite; Rei(Raye)/Jadeite. Hopefully this inspires somebody else to post more.

Sailor Moon
Pairing: Usagi/Mamoru; Makoto/Nephrite; Minako/Kunzite; Ami/Zoicite; Rei/Jadeite
Fic Title: Six Degress
Author: crystal_rose2
Link: At fanfiction.net
Rating/Warning(s): R: Non-graphic sex; AU - no senshi; English names; 
Genre: Drama/Romance
WIP?: Y -Chapter 7, not updated regularly

Summary: Serena just became Darien Shield's (family friend) secretary. Her roommate, Amara, got a job at the same company; but never bothered to tell Serena she's in love with her. Lita is cheating on her dying husband with Nathan. Mina is trying to break through into acting, and avoid prostitution while she's at it. Irene's bored of being a housewife. Ami's trying to keep her career going even if she's a loner. Raye's causing trouble at her school. We're all separated by six degrees of separation.

Why This Must Be Read: Brilliant, insightful and enchanting. It will take you through the full range of emotions and the detail in connecting everyone is spectacular. Each seem to be in a hearbreaking situation with their signifcant other with seemingly impossible obstacles - a significant other, the workplace, etc.
