Here we go - a whole month in one post. There's a few days missing because I just didn't have anything good enough to rec or because everything in that category was already on the site.

The tags are gonna be madness!

Day 01 - A fic for your current favorite ship )

Day 02 - A fic for your very first ship )

Day 03 - A fic for UST )

Day 04 - A fic that demonstrates how a pairing with little canon romantic chemistry/interaction can totally work )

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

Day 06 - A fic with the most heartbreaking scene )

...and the rest )

Day 30 - A fic you've read and reread a dozen times.

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Elizabeth Weir/John Sheppard
Fic Title: Rites of Spring
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lanna_kitty
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, graphic sex
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I have to say that pretty much all of the fics that fall under today's category are for John/Elizabeth, so choosing just one was quite difficult. But this is definitely one I never tire of reading again and again. It sounds like a AMTDI fic at first, but really, it's a 'Aliens Suggested They Do It And They Did' kind of fic. ;) The characters are all spot-on, it's beautiful and sexy and hot, and all the things that we love in John/Elizabeth! And this is one of my favourite fics, period.

Day 29 - A fic that best deals with that character you loved who was unfairly fridged/killed in canon.

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Laura Cadman/Carson Beckett
Fic Title: First, do no harm
Author: HyperCaz
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: First, it's probably the cutest pairing in the Stargate verse, and even Elizabeth said so in-universe (and John totally rooted for them too). Of course, TPTB had to go and messed it up, as always. Still, it's a beautiful pairing, and it could have been great if they hadn't split them up and killed Carson (still can't forgive them for the mess that was s3.5 onwards with him and Elizabeth). This fic is beautiful, and it shows that Laura is there for Carson when he needs her. It's well-written, the characters are spot on, in a word, awesome!

Day 04 - A fic that demonstrates how a pairing with little canon romantic chemistry/interaction can totally work

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Kate Heightmeyer/Evan Lorne
Fic Title: Time to spare
Author: [livejournal.com profile] melyanna
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: romance, AU, baby!fic
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Kate/Lorne is the perfect example for this day, as they had only one scene together right, ONE! And the fics for them predates this little scene. [livejournal.com profile] wildwest_lantis has been recced before as a whole, but I felt like reccing this fic for today. It's a beautiful fanfiction for these two, and it really shows the chemistry they could have had on the show. And if you've never read [livejournal.com profile] wildwest_lantis what are you waiting for???

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Jennifer Keller/Ronon Dex
Fandom #: 22
Special Recs: 65-68

Fic Title: A Question of Trust
Author: Nika Dixon
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4474069/1/A-Question-of-Trust
Rating/Warning(s): K+/T
Genre: Hurt/Comfort
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 65

Why This Must Be Read: This is pre-ship/early-ship. It involves misunderstandings, injuries, theft/borrowing (depends on who you ask) and basically the mixed up maze of a pre-ship mixed in with the usual trouble of the Pegasus galaxy. The place where Murphy doesn't have a set of laws - he's actually running the whole show. Jennifer's got a question, but Ronon's had a bad day...everything goes down hill from there.

Pairing: Various (Buffy Summers/John Sheppard, Dawn Summers/Ronon Dex, Buffy Summers/Angel [plus Willow Rosenberg/Bobby Goren], Buffy Summers/Jon O'Neill [plus Willow Rosenberg/Xander Harris], Buffy Summers/Jack O'Neill [plus Willow Rosenberg/Teal'c, Samantha Carter/Xander Harris, & Faith Lehayne/Daniel Jackson], Buffy Summers/John Winchester, Joyce Summers/OMC)

Pairing: Buffy Summers/John Sheppard
Fic Title: Daddy Can Fix Anything

Rating/Warning(s): K/G
Genre: Fluff/Family/Humor
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 9

Why This Must Be Read: This is an adorable bit of fluff. Buffy gets to overhear a sweet moment between father and daughter. It gives you a look into a happy family with everyday troubles...even if mom and dad are heroes on the side.

Fandom Category: The Mentalist
Pairing: Teresa Lisbon/Patrick Jane
Fic Title: Five Times Jane Watched Lisbon Die (And One Time He Didn't)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lady_of_scarlet
Link: LJ / AO3
Rating/Warning(s): M (violence); character death (x5)
Genre: angst, friendship, bits and pieces of case!fic, UST, and (oddly enough, given the title) moments of complete fluff
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, usually I don't read character death fics; I'm in it for the happy endings. The promise of "one time he didn't", though, was enough to lure me in and so I gave it a shot, and yeah, this is a very well-written fic. It's going to tug at your heartstrings all over the place, but it's definitely worth it (just make sure you're in the right kind of mood, or have fluffy fic standing by as a remedy!). No real spoilers, IIRC. ~10K words.

Fandom Category: Warehouse 13
Pairing: Myka Bering/Pete Lattimer
Fic Title: Four Times Pete and Myka Lied, and One Time the Truth Came Out
Author: [livejournal.com profile] irony_rocks
Link: LJ / AO3
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: friendship, UST, humour, some A/A/case!fic, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: The characters' voices? Bang on. Seriously. You'll swear these scenes comes straight out of an episode, they're so accurate. Banter, artifacts, bonding, flirting... it's all here. (In the interests of fairness, I should point out that I betaed this one. But still, the quality stands on its own; give it a shot ASAP.) Low on spoilers and posted two years ago anyway, so. ~5K words.

two Castle (Beckett/Castle) and two Stargate: Atlantis (Elizabeth/John) Five Times recs under the cut! )

(Mods, I don't know if it's worth adding a Kate Beckett/Josh Davidson tag for a fic that shares its 'ship with Beckett/Castle?)

Pairing: Elizabeth Weir/John Sheppard
Fic Title: Strangers In an Empty Space
Author: [livejournal.com profile] daygloparker
Link: http://daygloparker.livejournal.com/393465.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Drama, Romance
Special Rec: 86/100

Why This Must Be Read: Taking a cue from The X Files and Farscape, [livejournal.com profile] daygloparker gives a fabulous look into how much things can change when, really, nothing has changed at all. I love so many things about this story: the confusion between what is real and what isn't, the way Sheppard and Weir interact, the descriptions of the first time (that isn't) and the first time (that is)... This story is all brilliance.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP? Nope!

Why This Must Be Read: BECAUSE IT'S AMAZING, THAT'S WHY! It was one of the first Great Stargate Crossovers (seriously, you can almost id the exact moment [livejournal.com profile] melyanna fell in love with Elizabeth/John), and it still stands as one of the best I've ever seen. PLUS, it has this SHINY TRAILER, care of [livejournal.com profile] sache8.

Cut for vid )

(And, seriously, watch the trailer again after you've read the fic. It's so good, sometimes I forget this didn't happen in Canon.)

I'm not sure what it was about Stargate Atlantis that sparked such an ENORMOUS number of AUs. Yet here we are.

Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Elizabeth Weir/John Sheppard (primary), also Laura Cadman/Carson Beckett, Kate Heightmeyer/Marcus Lorne, etc.
Fic Title: [livejournal.com profile] stargate_ren
Author: [livejournal.com profile] melyanna, [livejournal.com profile] miera_c, [livejournal.com profile] angelqueen04 and [livejournal.com profile] sache8
Link: http://stargate-ren.livejournal.com/8085.html
Rating/Warning(s): G-PG
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP? Kind of. All the stories are currently complete, but they are still wrapping up the series.

Why This Must Be Read: THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH MOMENTS IN MY LIFE for me to explain why you need to read this. The characterizations are spot on. The historical detail (and accuracy) is STAGGERING. The tension is NEARLY UNBEARABLE a lot of the time. EVERYONE is in it. And it is ENORMOUS.

I do recommend that you start with Ascension of the Queen, and read the stories in the order they were written. It feels more like seasons of TV that way. :)

Other recs under the cut )

And now I'm sure I'm forgetting something...

(I totally gave up tagging this, btw. There are about a million pairings in Ren ALONE, and most of them are kind of unconventional.) :)

Author: [livejournal.com profile] thimble_kiss: All of her stories are linked on her sidebar
Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Hermione Granger/Viktor Krum mostly, Hermione/Cormac McLaggen, Zacharias Smith/Various HP females, and a ton of other rare pairings
Rating/Warning(s): G-NC-17
Genre: Romance, Humor, Smut

Why This Must Be Read: [livejournal.com profile] thimble_kiss writes the best Viktor/Hermione fics in fandom, hands down. Her Viktor is a thing of beauty--complexity, subtlety, ambition, chivalry, compassion, and mischievousness, all wrapped up in a sexy, Bulgarian package that will make you swoon. She handles his accent with incredible skill; his dialogue has just enough stiltedness for verisimilitude, but it is never unreadable. And her prose. Dear god, her prose. It is out-of-this-world gorgeous. Aside from Viktor/Hermione, [livejournal.com profile] thimble_kiss writes a ton of HP rarepairs (her Hermione/Cormac fics have already been rec'd on this comm). And if you're a fan of Zacharias Smith, she is your girl. You cannot go wrong with this author. She'll make you sigh, swoon, squeal, and cry with every word she writes. Personal Favorites: "Winterwhere"; "Practical Magic" and its sequel, "Tiger By The Tail"; and "Friction Point"

4 more author recs and countless fandoms/pairings under the cut )

Mods, I need a lot of new tags. You don't need one for every pairing, but a few important ones include Hermione Granger/Viktor Krum, Sakura Haruno/Kakashi Hatake, Elinor Dashwood/Edward Ferrars, Helena Bertinelli/Vic Sage and Dinah Lance/Bruce Wayne. Could I also get fandom tags for Emma and Justice League Unlimited? Sorry!

Fic Title: Even in the Distance
Author: Reyclou
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2809302/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 | semi-graphic description of physical injuries
Genre: Angst, friendship, romance, tragedy
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Make sure you have a box of tissues handy when you read this fic, everyone, because you'll need it. One of the most tragic stories you'll ever read for the pairing, this is everyone's worst nightmare come to life, especially Elizabeth's. A beautifully crafted story from start to finish.

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Teyla Emmangen/John Sheppard
Fic Title:Short and Sweet
Author: Kariesue
Rating/Warning(s):T-M/some sexuality
Genre:Scifi romance/humor/angst

Why This Must Be Read:Because it's simply amazing how much story this writer can tell in so few words. The stories grew from a 100 word prompt challenge on the Beya LJ. This writer has taken these and just created wonderful little gems. So each story is as the series title suggests *short and sweet* but she's only done about 38 promts and there were 100 so the protential for so much more goodness. Enjoy!
