Day 02 - A fic for your very first ship

Fandom Category: The Pretender
Pairing: Miss Parker/Jarod
Fic Title: You Run, I Chase
Author: phoenixnz
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Teen, no warnings given
Genre: Drama
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: It starts out like an episode, and it just keeps getting better and more complicated. It's pretty much everything I loved about the show, and it explores the super-complex past and background of Jarod (no last name) and Miss Parker (no first name).

Fandom Category: Star Wars
Pairing: Mara Jade/Luke Skywalker
Fic Title: A Journey of Discovery Book One: Pendulum
Author: Jedi-2B
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: An AU to beat all AU's. It was down to this or Drive You Mild, but I didn't have to choose between the two as that one has already been recced at this site. Slow development of characters and relationships, and the whole cast has something to do. Plus, just the first book in the series!

(technically, this is my third pairing rather than my first, but the first two don't really have any fanfic to speak of)

Now that I only have one day left of my month, I keep thinking of more stories to recommend ;) Not sure how many I will have time to write up before tomorrow, but I'll try my best!

Four Star Wars recommendations (Leia Organa/Han Solo, Mara Jade/Luke Skywalker, Siri Tachi/Obi-Wan Kenobi) )

Fic Title: You Can't Carry It With You
Author: aeternium
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/113018
Rating/Warning(s): R, character death
Genre: Angst, AU, tragedy
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A heartbreaking alternative to Anakin and Padme's confrontation on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith. Padme's grief is palpable with every word, along with her determination to preserve Anakin's true memory, the good man he once was. I teared up when I read this.

Pairing: Luke Skywalker/ Mara Jade, Luke Skywalker/Other, Han Solo/Leia Organa
Fic Title: The Son of Suns Trilogy
Author: Blank101
Link: The Son OF Sun Trilogy
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: EPIC fic (750,000 words long), AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Have you got a good couple of days to while away and immerse yourself in an alternate reality? This universe is super epic of the most glorious nature. An Alternative Universe which spins off from the end of The Empire Strikes Back, featuring all the main characters. When Luke and his companions are caught over Bespin and taken to Coruscant, Palpatine begins to systematically take apart Luke's life to create his new Sith, turning Luke against his allies, his father and his beliefs with devastating effect. Most importantly the main characters that is Luke, Mara, Leia, Han, Vadar and Palpatine etc are still recognizably them and they react in ways that resonate with their personalities in the circumstances that Blank101 puts them in.

Pairing: Princess Leia Organa / Captain Han Solo
Fic Title: Double Twist of Fate Or a Melody
Author: Thistlerose
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/96315
Rating/Warning(s): Teen and Up
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: The author's summary, "A sketch of their relationship, post-Jedi," captures the gist of this fic perfectly.  It's no more than that, a series of outlines of different aspects of their new lives, but the whole thing is beautifully rendered and so totally in character you can just about hear Carrie Fischer and Harrison Ford speaking the lines.  The image of Leia's impossibly long hair flows throughout the piece, which is a lovely trope, and Thistlerose also finds the clearest characterization of Padmé Amidala I think I've ever read.

Rating/Warning(s): pg-13?
Genre: AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: What if Han were a private detective, and Leia just happened to be his new client? What if it was told in first-person noir style? What if Chewie could speak English and was called Charles?

Not my standard Star Wars preferences, and yet it works flawlessly. ;)

Pairing: Padme Amidala/Obi-wan Kenobi
Fic Title: Prophecy Lost
Author: Chasing Liquor on ff.net
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/797794/1/Prophecy_Lost
Rating/Warning(s): M, very graphic violence, language, sexual situations, canon character deaths
Genre: Action/adventure, sci-fi, drama, angst, romance
WIP?: No, long.
Special rec: 18/31
Author’s Summary: AU - set between Episodes 1 & 2 - Obi-Wan, Anakin, and two other Jedi are sent to Naboo in the wake of attempts on Padme's life, but much more is at stake and the future of the Jedi is left in question...

Why This Must Be Read: This is a brilliantly written AU. You will fall in love with Obi-wan all over again and this is the Padme I wish we’d seen. This author writes the best action and fight scenes I’ve ever read. The plot is long and well-though-out, the romance is done subtly and the OCs are fantastic. I will warn any fans of Anakin however, he isn’t treated very well although there is a reason for it. Just an amazing, intriguing story.

Rating/Warning(s): PG

Why This Must Be Read: A quiet moment between Han and Leia, late at night on the Millennium Falcon pre-Episode V. The writing in this story is lovely: beautiful imagery paired with pitch-perfect dialogue.

Fic Title: A Thousand Pieces
Author: motchi
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5239417/1/A_Thousand_Pieces
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Angst, drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is a beautiful fic that follows through with the original trilogy, focusing primarily on the evolution of Leia. Not only is the writing evocative and lyrical and yet still spare, but the characterizations are right on. This fic highlights Leia's strengths, her convictions, but also her flaws, her fears. Luke and Han are also brilliantly portrayed, the roles the two men play in her life, and this is the Han Solo I love, a guy who is a pirate, a mercenary, and occasionally a goofball pain in the ass, but still sharp and smart with his own view of the universe that is so different from everything Leia has known. He's the perfect foil for her evolution. Even the use of alternating second and third person POV is perfectly executed.

WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I loved the character voice in this, the lyrical lines and the swift POV as Han tries everything in his power not to fall for Leia - and fails miserably.

Fic Title: Air and Angels
Author: [livejournal.com profile] irnan 
Link:  http://irnan.livejournal.com/152420.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (though there is one sexy tiem)
Genre: Humour/Action
WIP?: No. :D

Why This Must Be Read: ""Oh, look, just - show me that holo, OK?" Luke said irritably. "Yes, that one of your Mom. And, see - this - this is my father." Leia, still suspicious of him, took one look at his holo and paled. "Dad!" she exclaimed." So think The Parent Trap, add Skywalker twins and a dash of intergalactic conflict. Shake well. Serves unlimited fic readers. :D

[livejournal.com profile] irnan is an indepth fan, and her meta (especially on Anakin and Padme, within and beyond their relationship -- it provides a lot of background depth to her fics) is well worth a read if you think you can handle it (;D). Her fics however, are also otherwise beautifully accessible, and this one is no exception. This is fun, AU romp and I strongly encourage you to check out everything [livejournal.com profile] irnan 's written. It's well worth wading through the tags. :D Infact I may add more recs to this post, when I find another study break. :D

Author: blank101

Rating/Warning(s): Psychological and physical torture, significantly more in the third fic, character death, violence.
Genre: Epic action, drama and romance.
WIP?: Nope (YAY)

Why This Must Be Read: AU set at the end of The Empire Strikes Back where Luke and his companions are caught and taken to Coruscant. This trilogy of fiction is epic. The characters are incredibly well drawn. Mara is written so strongly and her (and Luke) learning to balance between the dark and light side of the Force is portrayed with just the amount of effort needed. The roles the characters, both good and 'evil' and in the gray space in-between, play are amazingly intricate and well written. The use of the characters, how everything draws to a close is amazingly well done.

I saw the requests posts had a request for Han/Leia recs. I don't read too much of that pairing, most of it is incidental to and Luke/Mara pieces I read but I do have some good ones, mostly Leia-centric pieces:

WIP?: No. (Oneshot)

Why This Must Be Read: [livejournal.com profile] deaka is one of my favourite authors. She captures both Luke and Mara's personality so well. This particular story is set after the NJO, and it offers a brief and tatalising glimpse into 'normal life' for a family that rarely has a chance to live it.

Fic Title: Solo's Girl
Author: [livejournal.com profile] knightedrogue
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2423720/1/Solos_Girl
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, humor
WIP?: No. (There are more fics set in this AU, but this one is a stand-alone.)

Why This Must Be Read: When this ficlet begins, you're thrown into a universe as dark and dangerous as the Mos Eisley Cantina. In fact, it begins in a bar, where an unsavory low-life named Gej is contemplating his chances with various women that night. That is, until he sees Solo's girl, all dolled up and looking for a good time--a time which Gej feels uniquely qualified to provide, especially if it means getting revenge on Solo. Things aren't quite what they appear, though, and Gej may have landed himself in more trouble than he can manage when Solo himself shows up.

This fic does a great job of showing a different side to Leia and Han, playing with the "what if?" concept of the AU and yet keeping both of them firmly in-character. The setting is gritty and the sensory description fabulous, and the ending is funny and fun.
