Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Castle/Sanctuary
Pairing: Martha Rodgers/James Watson
Fic Title: Everyone is slightly abnormal
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kaitlia777
Link: Part One | Part Two
Rating/Warning(s): R, language
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's hard for me to ship two people who have never met, but Martha/James just work. Really, when you think about it, it just fits, and it would explain a few things from the Castle verse. This fic is so well written, the characters are spot on, and once you start reading it, you just can't stop. And with this, I've officially recced the only two Martha/James fics out there. There should be more. ;)

Day 05 - A fic with the best kiss/sex scene.

Fandom Category: Sanctuary
Pairing: Helen Magnus/John Druitt
Fic Title: The Language of Flowers
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nocleversig
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, explicit sex
Genre: Angst, smut
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Not only this fic has the best kiss scene, but it also has a great sex scene. Perfect for today, right? This has a beautiful portrayal of Helen, but also of John. It shows how sweet and romantic he can be when the Ripper isn't in control. And the ship is written perfectly, in its tragic beauty. I think the last line of the fic says it all, really.

Pairing: Martha Rodgers/James Watson, Kate Beckett/Richard Castle, Ashley Magnus/Henry Foss
Fic Title: Stranger than Fiction
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lanna_kitty
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (language and violence), spoilers for Castle up to Rise (4-01)
Genre: angst, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I've read a couple of Castle/Sanctuary crossover before this one, and all of these have one thing in common: Martha/James. And let me tell you that it just works. For this only, this fic is a gem. It's not a Castle in the Sanctuary world, or Sanctuary in the Castle world kind of crossover: the shows are perfect equals, exactly what everyone loves in a crossover. This fic is just awesome, perfect even. And if you're of fan of both shows, let me tell you, you won't be able to stop reading it once you've started.

Fic Title: I'll Leave with Every Piece of You
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zinke
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/zinke_fic/26513.html
Rating/Warning(s): R, sex, hints of dark themes and violence (this is Jack the Ripper we're talking about)
Genre: Drama, angst, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Helen and John are a star-crossed couple with a history, and by history I mean over 120 years' worth. Yet, this fic explores all their intensely complex history and Helen's feelings about it while in-character, comprehensive, and just over 2,000 words. It's exactly how Doctor Magnus should feel about it, but it's also how all of us shippers think Helen secretly feels about her relationship with John. It's all the angst and love and anger and personality issues I love about this couple, rolled into one story. Set in the wake of "Haunted", an episode which called into question everything Helen thought she knew about John Druitt and his past, this delicious little nugget of a fic imagines everything we didn't and couldn't see onscreen, the consequences of "Haunted", and also provides a completely believable (yet unbelievably toe-curling) roll in the hay without depicting much more than kissing. If the end of Haunted left you craving some gritty, but shippy, fic about this duo, this is definitely the fic for you. I consider it part of my personal canon, something we weren't allowed to see onscreen simply because the show doesn't air on a more sexually progressive channel like Showtime. I really can't say enough about it (though if you ask me, I'll sure as heck try - I just cut 200 words out of this blurb). I recommend you go read immediately.

Character: Nikola Tesla
Pairings Included in Manifesto: Helen Magnus/Nikola Tesla

I should note here that I did not recommend any slash, threesomes, or any of my own fics (which are not slash), in keeping with The Rules. There is quite a bit of that sort of thing out there, since Tesla is kind of the Little Black Dress of the Sanctuary fandom, and you should totally go and read them all (I have a tag and everything!). Because in a hundred and fifty years, even Victorians get creative about stuff like this.

Blurb and Recs under the cut )

I really did try not to make them all by [livejournal.com profile] penknife, but it was hard. And I haven't been in this fandom a terrifically long time, so I'm kind of a three-author circus at this point. But it's the BEST circus. And I'm sure it will only get better.

Pairing: Ashley Magnus/Henry Foss
Fic title: Out of the Woods
Author: The Blue Raven
Link: Here
Rating: T
Genre: One-shot, romance, hurt/comfort
WIP?: No

Why this must be read: Because Henry knows how to look after Ashley when she's been shot by the Cabal. This is romantic and sweet yet Ashley remains her spikey self and the banter she shared with Henry on-screen is still wonderfully present. This is two people who grew up side by side in extraordinary circumstances and have always been there for and loved each other. It's a wonderful journey into Ashley realising what that love is now and how much she needs it and she isn't afraid to go after what she wants, even when Henry is. A truly wonderful read that flows beautifully.

Fic title: Truth
Author: [livejournal.com profile] artaxastra 
Link: Here
Rating: G
Genre: Angst, Romance, Family, Missing Scenes
WIP: No
Why this must be read: It's a beautiful sad look at Helen & John's relationship through the ways Helen lies about John to Ashley throughout Ashley's life and what happens when Ashley finds out the truth about her father. The richness of detail is breathtaking and the characters and situations are so three-dimensional and believable. I love how John is not just a bogey-man, he's real and Helen loved him. This is my personal canon.

Fandom: Sanctuary
Pairing: Helen Magnus//John Druitt
Fic title: Suns in Their Courses
Author: [livejournal.com profile] artaxastra

Rating: PG -for discussions of violence.
Genre: Romance, Banter, Angst, Hope
WIP: No
Why this must be read: Because its John and Helen in all their bantery glory, and they don't pretend the past didn't happen or that the other one is perfect. It's them as the flawed characters that they are and there's real believable hope at the end that completely fits them. I never finish reading this without a smile on my face.
