Author: ellie_kat89

Rating/Warning(s): mature
Genre: time-traveling, drama/romance.
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: In the year 2024 cyborg turned Resistance soldier Marcus Wright will partake in the most important mission of his new life, save Kyle Reese from the T-800 in 1984. But can the strands of time really be changed so simply and destiny fooled so easily? A story of love, second chances, and sacrifices set post Judgment-Day. Awesome look into Terminator Salvation, and the world there, and how that could cut back to changing the past if only Marcus had lived. Give it a go if you love this 'verse as much as I do.

Rating/Warning(s): teen and up
Genre: post-movie
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Set Post Terminator Salvation, Kate struggles to understand her own role as a leader while still being a wife. A lovely look at John/Kate in the hellish aftermath of Salvation, and I just love how their connection and feelings run through the length of this fic so well. Kate's strength and voice is so strong, and John is, here, not the leader of the resistance so much as he's just a banged-up guy and a husband. This pairing gives me so many feels, and I really wish there was more fics centered around them.

Rating/Warning(s): Explicit Sex, Pegging
Genre: Hurt/Comfort? More like "she's trying to make him sleep."
WIP?: Nope

Why This Must Be Read: I just started reading all this author's stuff last night because she writes burning hot stories and stumbled upon this gem. It's in Cameron's POV and has her comparing John to future!John, which is totally fascinating. The sex is hot and their relationship hella interesting. Also, pegging, if that's your thing. :)

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: action/adventure
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Long, plotty Terminator fic that is just perfectly written for this verse. I was waiting for this story to be complete before reccing, but I've known I was going to rec it for a while as it slowly built chapter by chapter. The action, the complexity of their situation, and best of all, the author posits Kate Brewster front and center as she goes from being a passanger in John Connor's fate to an integral part in it. This romance is more slow-burning than I would have expected, but I guess that makes sense as there's, y'know, an apocalypse going on and they've got to keep focused. But the characterization and the journey is deflty written. Another thing that has my envy, and I say this because I myself struggle with it as a writer, is the action sequences. Very, very well written, with detail and grit and a thousand small details that make you think the author just lived and breathed this verse.

Why this must be read: To say too much about this one would give the game away. It's a beautifully written piece, playing with the time-loop paradox that defines the Terminator story, and in the space of 2,500 words it manages to be poignant and hopeful and really very lovely. Enjoy.

Why this must be read: Because Derek is a great character - desperately short-changed by the show - and this short fic gives a great insight into him. The end section is beautifully written. monimala manages to say so much about Derek and Sarah in so little time. But then the devil is in the details and, for some reason, learning Sarah's preferred flavour of ice cream just makes me smile and then miss this show terribly.

WIP?: No

Why this must be read: I think I've already seen this recced on here, but not for this challenge and it's so good it bears a re-rec. Sarah and Derek playing mom and pop in small town America. It's the ideal cover. The contrast between their lives and the lives of the small community around them is perfectly drawn. Sarah Connor and Derek Reese were never meant to live on Pomegranate St and go to Meet the Parents nights, but playing a happy couple has its advantages and there is fantastically hot up-against-a-wall-sex to compensate for the kitten sweaters and marriage certs. It's funny and awesome and very very hot. Go read.

Why this must be read: A ongoing series of Sarah and Derek snapshot scenes. Fantastic characterisation; sweet, brittle, harsh and hot. Well worth a read to remind yourself exactly what the show lost when it decided to break apart the Connor family dynamic they'd established so beautifully in season one. Indie's one of the best S/D writers out there, and there's a tonne of good stuff on her main fic page. Enjoy.

Rating/Warning(s): Sex
Genre: Smut, angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Season One fic where Derek finds out that Kyle is John's father, and all the fallout of that. This story explores the tension between Sarah and Derek of S1 perfectly, how they're kinda antagonistic, but they both have the same goals and mindset. Hot, in character, and wonderfully in character. Great exploration of these two, without sugarcoating any of the issues inherent in this pairing.

Why This Must Be Read: Derek and Sarah pretend to be a happy married couple for John's Parent-Teacher Conference. Oh, yeah, there's no way that could go wrong. I love this fic because it's so them, constantly testing each other and pushing. Yet hot, and funny, and just very unexpectedly appealing (considering how hardcore Sarah/Kyle I used to be). Very good stuff.
