Why This Must Be Read: Another Sue and Kent AU from end of S2. Told from Kent’s POV it’s so delightful. I love Sue becoming his assistant and him trying to stay in denial about his developing feelings for Sue. Ben needling him about those feelings could have come direct from the series. I love the language kethni uses when writing these characters. The ending makes this fangirl happy.

Why This Must Be Read: Amnesia. Angst. Trips into the memory machine. What more do I need to say? I love this story for the memories alone. They feel right for Melinda. These two never discuss anything about what they are really feeling and it’s glorious. I keep recc’ing angst-filled stories but I can’t stop myself. I’m so drawn to it and this is a very good example of angst for my fave spies.

Why This Must Be Read | This is a truly lovely piece of writing, much like the other Rogue One story I recc'd here! The voices and descriptions of these characters are perfect, and the way they interact with each other feels like exactly where and how they might have ended up if the two of them had continued further in movie canon. Also, there's a scene toward the end that had me going: I QUIT, I'M DONE, I'M FIREDDDDDD. My heart has both shriveled and exploded in my chest.
I'm living firmly in denial about what's happening in Washington, D.C. later this week. Ahem.

Why This Must Be Read: Josh and Donna and a variety of road trips over the years. There is nothing not to enjoy about this, including/especially the author's awareness of Virginia congressional districts and the perfect, perfect conversation during the Santos campaign.

Why This Must Be Read: I’ll warn you this is baby fic and OMG it’s so fantastic. It’s set after S1 and the way it happens feels right. I love the exploration of their relationship in this. How Melinda and Phil grow all the closer due to the pregnancy. Is it sappy? Heck yeah but isn’t that what we all love? Another thing I like in this is all the family. That’s one thing about the series I like, with how the team are, and it’s in this story. Also the Avengers show up and I love the friendship that pops up with Melinda and Cap. Then there’s the scenes with Phil and Mrs May. Yes I fangirl over this story so much. I love it and can’t even tell you how many times I’ve read it.

Why This Must Be Read: An episode addition for “Falling Darkness”. A small moment for the couple that is so sweet and fits in perfectly with the tone of the episode. I like how Laura talks to Robbie and as always tries to bring him out of the shell he’s put himself in since Val’s death. This fic has their friendship at full strength but there’s the shippy undertones that make me love this fic all the more.

Why This Must Be Read: Academy fics for Phililnda are always fun. Watching as they become friends and then realise they feel more is awesome. There are lots of little actions and dialogue that feel just like the Melinda and Phil we know from the series. ddagent really has a good grasp of these two characters. She treats them and us, the reader, right. Oh and there’s fluff, lots of glorious fluff.

Why This Must Be Read: This was one of the first fics I read for my OTP and it remains one my go-to’s when I get down thinking they are never going to sail. There’s so much angst (it fits in perfect with the events of S1) and so much smut. Awesome, fantastic, delicious smut. There’s lot of not talking going on but luckily that doesn’t stop any of the sexy times. If you love Philinda this is a must read.

Why This Must Be Read: It’s Selina and Kent starting as hate sex and going into so much more and well I love it!!! Yes I have a serious thing for Kent and he’s so damn awesome in this but I love how kethni writes Selina and the rest of the characters. The dialogue is spot on and then there are all the things that will satisfy the shipper reading. I really can’t wait to see how it ends. I’m holding out hope for a wedding. Yes I am that sappy.

Mods can I get a ship tag for Selina Meyer/Kent Davison?

Why This Must Be Read: This is a fave from before every Chelsie lover died from the proposal. It’s sweet and fluffy and fits the couple perfectly. It’s nice to see Charles out of his comfort zone but so committed to wooing Elsie. With this story it’s very easy to forget all Carson’s gruff manners. He’s a man in love and he wants to show Elsie just what she means to him. I really like how Hogwarts Duo has letters with the two of them throughout the fic. They get sappy but it works because I think it works for the time period and when you remember who the two are, finding love so late in life I think they deserve more than a little sappy happiness. Such a lovely piece of work.
