What? So I might be spamming this comm with my Young Justice love, but I don't hear any complaints.

Fandom Category: Young Justice
Pairing: Artemis Crock/Dick Grayson
Fic Title: Split-Brain Syndrome
Author: asa

Rating/Warning(s): teen and up
Genre: season 1 fic. romance/humor
WIP?: nope

Why This Must Be Read: Girl likes boy. Girl likes another boy. Boy is the same person. —Robin/Artemis/Dick. This is a rather an awesome fic that first converted me to the idea of Dick/Artemis. It's season one fic, so it has them still young. I just absolutely love the whole Artemis/Dick verses Artemis/Robin aspect of this, though you kind feel like "poor Artemis, she has no clue." Still, fun and well written.

I've been meaning to rec these fics for a long time, so I'm just going to do a massive fic dump in one post.

Fandom Category: The Amazing Spiderman (2012)
Pairing: Gwen Stacy/Peter Parker
Fic Title: promise not to promise anymore
Author: ProfessorSpork

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

Why This Must Be Read: A wonderful look at what was going on with Gwen at the end of the film, capturing all the emotion we didn't have time to see. From grief to anger to need to forgiveness, this is a great fic about Gwen and her struggle and confusion over Peter's decision.

Fandom Category: Inception/Harry Potter (infusion)
Pairing: Ariadne/Arthur
Fic Title: Further Studies in Impossibility
Author: metonymy
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/228321
Rating/Warning(s): Teen and up
Genre: fusion crossover
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: When I first read the idea, I was entirely dubious. But this is a surprisingly well written fusion where Ariadne is actually a witch in Harry Potter's world, and how she comes into Cobb's Inception world with that history. Her relationships and viewpoints are tainted by her experiences, and the muggle world is suddenly just as complicated as her wizarding world. Very well written.

Rating/Warning(s): Teen and up
Genre: AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A Young Justice AU set to "The Breakfast Club." Need I say more? No, but seriously, the casting in this was flawless, and the characterization of each person shined through surprisingly well for transplanting them into a new non-superhero setting. Especially Artemis, whose loud-mouth casting as Bender is just epically awesome. It's got a deft touch and hits all the spots that made the Breakfast Club movie so classic, and yet balances that out with the YJ characterization.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, language, major character death
Genre: Adventure, family/friendship, angst, drama
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: So I've been lurking on this LJ for awhile, reaping all the benefits of not having to trawl through heaps of fic to get to the good ones, but I've never really been tempted to post a rec of my own...but this author has totally made me grab an account and start reccing. This particular fic is a what if story where Batman's sudden death leaves the Team without a mentor and the Justice League without one of their important members. So what do they do? Call Catwoman in, of course. In this fic, Catwoman happens to have been married to Batman, and is "reformed," but still retains all the badass-ery that makes her, well, Catwoman. It also makes her a hilarious and oddly touching mentor for the Team. The characterization is spot on for all the characters, and I really particularly enjoyed the serving of Artemis/Wally, complete with banter and teasing and adorable-ness. This fic might be most notable for the excellent dynamics between Team members (particularly the friendships between Wally & Dick, M'Gann & Dick, Artemis & Connor) and between Catwoman and the Team as she struggles with her new role. The team is initially wary of her, but are starting to warm up per the last update. A really great, fun read that I'm happy to have stumbled upon.

Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Because [livejournal.com profile] torigates took my very simple request of trading sex for spells and turned it into something much more than a PWP. It's got great characterization and feelings, and you can feel the weight that's sitting on Dick's shoulders by the end of Depths.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] kittu9

Rating/Warning(s): None.
Genre: Established Relationship, Humor. Babyfic, of a sort.
WIP?: None.

Why This Must Be Read: Because Wally west being incredibly great with kids will never not be something great, and because it fits in beautifully with season two canon and the domestic bliss version of Wally and Artemis we haven't seen nearly enough of. Basically, it's amazing.

Fic Title: Let Me Be Your Ride Out Of Town
Author: Empressearwig
Link: Here.
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Roadtrip!
WIP?: No.

Summary: On the day Artemis graduates from college, there's someone in the crowd that she never expected to see. When Wally asks her to go on the cross country road trip they'd always planned, her answer surprises them both.

Why This Must Be Read: First of all, I am a sucker for a good roadtrip fanfic. Secondly, I absolutely adore the slow reveal of the reasons for why Wally and Artemis broke up prior to the opening. Third, I love that the author shows how good Wally and Artemis are together - their banter, how well they know each other– and give the audience a good chunk of word count in which these two are happy together - it's not like 'emotion problem resolved - bam, the end.'

Also, I really enjoyed Robin and Zatanna's supporting roles.

Fic Title: the crime of having nowhere to go
Author: torigates
Link: Here.
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Humor, Pre-Ship, Meet the Parents
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I'm combining the "this must be read" part for these, because even though they're totally separate fics, I think of them in tandem. Because they are Artemis meets the Wests fics and GREAT. One of my favorite things to think about with these two (or before season two started anyway) was the prospect of Wally bringing Artemis home to meet his parents, because his life is so completely different than hers. And both of these take that premise and execute it so incredibly well that I want to read them again and again. You will as well.

Rating/Warning(s): teen, spoilers for s2.04
Genre: romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Because this is the perfect gap-filler for the five year leap between s1 and s2 for this couple. My personal head canon, for sure. Jade doesn't mean to get into a relationship with Red Arrow, and she certainly doesn't mean to fall in love with him. Sometimes life is surprising. Lovely read!

Genre: smut, but it's not PWP
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: There's more than one way to be in bed with the enemy. Spoilers through Auld Acquaintance. The narration and voices of both characters is wonderfully perfect. It addresses the whole s1 ending shocker, and just - yes. This is why I ship this pairing, and I was utterly delighted to find such a well-written story featuring them.

Why This Must Be Read: Literally so hilarious that I had to stop myself from laughing obnoxiously loud in public while reading it. Wally decides to woo Artemis. It goes about as well as you'd expect. Fantastic voices and funny as hell.

Rating/Warning(s): T. Mentions of sex, but definitely nothing too heavy.
Genre: romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Artemis can't even think about it without wanting to shrink in on herself and die, but there still remains the fact that she had sex with Wally...accidentally, of course. Awesome, awesome fic for this show that perfectly showcases their relationship. The voice of Artemis is especially spot-on.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; language, minor violence
Genre: UST/RST, matchmaking fic, friendship, cuteness all around.
WIP?: nope
(10/20)

Why This Must Be Read: A) [livejournal.com profile] mekosuchinae writes such amazing fic! B) This fic is adorable! M'gann tries her hand at match making and everything kinda turns around on it self and matchmakes herself? Such is the life of a teenage alien superhero! The handle on the characters and ships is so layered and real. These kids are flawed and caring and wonderful. Not to mention the relationship between M'gann and Superboy (at this moment in time he had not chosen his Earth name yet, fyi) is heartwarming like warm cookies.
