Pairing: Tiana/Naveen
Fic Title: Diggin' Deeper
Author: raspberryseedz
Link: HERE
Genre: Romance
Why This Must Be Read: The strongest PAFT stories I've noticed are the self contained, drabbe-esque kinds. raspberryseedz's "Diggin Deeper" really captures the surefire personalities of Naveen and Tiana in snapshots from points during the film or their lives afterward (how Naveen deals with Tiana's career-driven mentality that often leads to sleep deprivation and how Tiana relaxes in the presence of Naveen's carefree energy).

Fic Title: Across Worlds
Author: pkatharine
Rating/Warning(s): PG/Violence
Genre: Drama, Romance, Adventure, Crossover
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 17 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: I loved this crossover. Susan finds herself in Mirkwood forest, unsure of why Aslan has brought her there. Eventually she meets Legolas. What is great is that Susan is not a Mary Sue in this story, but she does have a grand adventure and we get to see the events of the LOTR series through her eyes. I also really enjoyed the various meetings between Susan and Legolas as they slowly fall in love. Very well done crossover.

Day 22 - A canon pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Captain America
Pairing: Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: and don't you dare be late
Author: irnan
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: Time Travel!AU, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Peggy and Steve's doomed romance in the movies just breaks my heart, so I love seeing them get a second chance in fic. This story features what might be my favorite Peggy/Steve reunion ever, ever, EVER. Seriously, ALL THE TEARS. And it's only one part of a series called interesting landings so you can get more of Peggy and Steve's story, if you so please.

(Don't worry, all those anime pairings have been listed in accordance with the new policy on anime pairing tags.)

Day 17 - A short fic

Fandom Category: Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Pairing: Belle/Beast
Fic Title: Fur
Author: [ profile] mahaliem
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 (Porn Battle fic; includes rough sex and explicit sexual content)
Genre: Drama/Smut/Stream of Conscious
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: "Some nights I dream I'm back in the cupboard". This manages to be erotic, claustrophobic, and pulse-pounding in so short a time, and focuses on Belle's emotions after marriage, after they've all been transformed back, and how it relates to her attitude toward the marriage bed. Written for Porn Battle several years ago, this still sticks with me as being impactful and erotic, all in under 300 words.

Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Doctor Who/Firefly
Pairing: Rose Tyler/Malcolm Reynolds
Fic Title: Passing the Years Among the Stars
Author: [ profile] jessicaqueen
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13. Implied character deaths.
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: "Me? I’ve always been more about the journey. She’s a ship that flies and she has a captain who clearly loves her enough to keep her that way. The rest is just dressin’."

Firely and Doctor Who is a relatively common crossover choice. This pairing isn't, but this story makes me ache for what could be. Set after Journey's End and Serenity (the film), Rose finds herself on Serenity, and meets the captain. It's wonderfully intriguing to see two damaged souls as they get to know each other.

Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Castle/Sanctuary
Pairing: Martha Rodgers/James Watson
Fic Title: Everyone is slightly abnormal
Author: [ 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. ;)

Fic Title: Impolitic
Author: [ profile] kayliemalinza

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; dubcon (sex pollen trope)

Why This Must Be Read: This is a smutty classic in Torchwood fandom. Tosh and Ianto are dosed with sex pollen. The only thing to do is let them have at it.

Why This Must Be Read: The Doctor and River have adventures and send letters to Amy and Rory. It's a fun read; it's like the postcards are coming to life before your eyes.

Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/James "Bucky" Barnes
Fic Title: this bullet lodged in my chest, covered with your name
Author: Cinaed
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Out of every Natasha/Marvel character pairing, Black Widow/Winter Soldier has to be my favorite. I love a good amount of angst in my pairings, and these two are absolutely fraught with it. This story explores the possible relationship that Natasha and Bucky had back in the Red Rooms and it is so beautifully crafted and nuanced that it's my headcanon now. Natasha is glorious in all of her assassin glory, intelligent and sharp and lethal, set against a backdrop of humanity and humor that few authors seem to give her. And when she cares...well. This is one of the best Natasha stories I've ever read, and the Natasha/Bucky bits are just the icing on the cake. Various warnings abound for violence, language, and horrible situations in general.

Mods, may I please have a tag for this pairing? Thank you!

Fic Title: How like a winter hath my absence been
Author: hesychasm (Jintian)
Link: Here.
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance, Friends to Lovers
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's beautiful. Adam/Vicky is the pairing of my teenage heart and I basically love all fic for them, but this one is particularly lovely. It's quiet, almost, in the way that they are in the books and it just feels like them in the best possible way.

So, in addition to participating in the Het Big Bang, I betaed three frickin' awesome epics, so I'd be remiss in not telling other people to read them in their finished forms.

The Avengers seems to be the new Harry Potter. Everyone's doing it, any pairing goes, and it's all awesome. )

Why This Must Be Read | A post season six finale AU in which Alex does not hang around in Seattle and instead seeks out one time mentor, one time lover, Addison Montgomery. What he finds instead is not what he was expecting. And you, dear reader, won't be expecting this either! These two broken people are so painfully, perfectly wrong for each other, and once you've got the idea of them in your head, you won't be able to get over it. I promise...!

Or, as I like to call it, a study in how Darcy introduces Captain America to the new era. It goes about as well as you'd expect. ;)

5 Multifandom AU recs (because that's how I roll).

Fandom Category: X-Men (movie-verse)
Pairing: Jean Grey/Scott Summers
Fic Title: How the Leopard Changed Her Spots
Author: Minisinoo
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: AU, Power swap
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: So this is the 3rd time I've rec'd Min's work on this comm I regret nothing! but this fit so well with the current challenge that I couldn't NOT rec it. This is a power swap AU of X-Men 1 so everyone (except Professor X) has someone else's power. In this story Jean has Mystique's mutation and fights on Magneto's side, while Scott has Cypher's mutation, which allows him to learn, understand, and speak any kind of language (e.g. spoken language, body language, computer language, etc.). He's also deaf. It is so, so fascinating to see how these fundamental changes in mutation/ability shape both Jean and Scott. They're so different to their canon counterparts, but at the same time, the core of each of these characters remains. It includes an excellent and sensitive portrayal of living with a hearing disability, as well as a rousing and impassioned defense of diversity, tolerance, and compassion delivered by Scott to the Senate during the hearing about the Mutant Registration bill. So. Good. Go read it! Now!

Four more recs from FFVII, Twilight, and Sailor Moon )

May I have a Yuffie/Vincent tag, please? And I guess an Ami Mizuno/OC tag since that got 2 recs. OC pairing tags for Makoto Kino, Minako Aino, and Rei Hino would be lovely but not necessary.
