Why This Must Be Read: What's Your Number is a movie about sex, though the definition of sex might vary greatly from person to person. Honestly? The first half reminds me a lot of high school -- and I think that's the point of it-- and the second half is adult relationship conversation. I loved the juxtaposition and I think it really works here.

Why This Must Be Read: Sometimes, you don't realize you're falling in love with someone until it's too late. Even though everyone's saying otherwise, Rebecca is adamant she's not falling in love with Greg (Until she isn't anymore.) I love fic that feels like it's conversations you're having with your friends -- this fic has honest conversations, people who deny their feelings like you would in life, and texting patterns that are the patterns I use with my friends.

Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Word Count/WIP?: 15,570 (complete)
Recced on LiveJournal By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: This fic takes two characters that I thought I was a little sick of and pitches them perfectly—both together and separately. Darcy is at her awesomest here, kicking administrative ass and outsmarting Hydra's finest at their own game, while Bruce's self-sacrificing is painfully believable—as is, for once, the relationship between them. Plus, there's Pepper and Maria pwning everyone and a nod toward everyone's favorite Avengers Tower fanon: air duct!Hawkeye.

Why This Must Be Read: The Office is real, sort of. Jim and Pam are actors playing themselves “falling in love.” Pam hates Jim, thinks he’s a pretentious asshole. Until she doesn’t anymore. You WILL crave a big beef n cheddar after you read this story, I swear to you.

Special Rec 14 of 30
Why This Must Be Read: Well, first, you should go watch A to Z, and then you should read this fic. A to Z had so much freaking potential, and we’ll never know how Andrew and Zelda ended up. Which is why you need this fic. Because any one of these scenarios was plausible, and for that, I’m grateful. There’s plot twists and turns, especially with details that aren’t 100% related to the plot...just like life.

Title: Forever Is Composed Of Nows

Rating/Warning(s): Mature

Recced on LiveJournal By: angelica_rules
Why This Must Be Read: Because it is simply amazing? Set in mid s2, this fic has *stefon voice* everything. Barry brings Oliver and Felicity's future daughter to them back in 2014 because Zoom is after her, when Slade at the moment is their only worry and everything changes. First of all, well, Oliver is with Sara and Slade is wreaking havoc in Starling... but then Ellie Queen shows up and makes Felicity and Oliver realize things they were keeping deep down. Bre and SoCaffeinated also wrote some of my fave other Arrow fics and they update this monster of a story every monday. Just trust me and read it.

Fandom: The Flash
Pairing: Barry x Iris (with slight mentions of Oliver x Felicity)
Title: perhaps we should've got married

Rating/Warning(s): Teen+

Recced on LiveJournal By: angelica_rules
Why This Must Be Read: Slightly inspired by the movie "Four Weddings and a Funeral", this fic indeed shows us how Barry and Iris are through four different weddings and one funeral where they finally give into their feelings. There are awkward drunk moments, there is jealousy, there is family trying to plan things behind their backs. And there is Wally! It is really amazing.

Recced on LiveJournal By: angelica_rules
Why This Must Be Read: Another of JSevick's "Alias" crossovers, this might be the one fic I liveblogged to my friend with all my feels because it is amazing? Basically Felicity is the Marshall Flinkman of this universe (well, not really Marshall-like) and Oliver is Sydney Bristow; ie. Felicity is the IT girl of SD6 and stumbles upon some information that leads her to the fact that SD6 and its lead Malcolm Merlyn work for the bad guys and then goes to CIA to work as a double-agent, only to find out that Oliver has already been a double-agent for years. They go on missions and they even act as a fake married couple! What else would you want?

Special Rec 10 of 30
Why This Must Be Read: Diaphenia, in addition to being one of my best friends, writes the antagonistic relationship between Dan and Amy so beautifully. I think I only had to pressure her into writing this one for about an hour before she did it? It’s truly remarkable how she’s managed to capture the magic from the veep-verse and bring it through to five different universes, so many what-ifs. Also, Dan and Amy stuck on a freaking boat.
