My view of Longmire is informed by both the series and the books. I watched the series first, then started reading the books, and each enhances my appreciation of the other. I picture the series cast when reading. I love the relationships on the show and in the book series, and am definitely rooting for the Vic/Walt romance for the long haul.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a really neat story that manages to be deeply personal and intimate without any explicit content, and it's sweet without being cloying to boot. It's also *made* of hurt/comfort, so...dig in!

Why This Must Be Read: When one's OTP gets it on in formal wear, one takes notice. When one's OTP gets it on in a closet, one takes notice. When one's OTP has a quickie...in a closet...in formal wear, well, it's enough to send any good shipper into spasm. When it's this heated and snarky, one does not stand a chance.

Why This Must Be Read: A Sunrise As Brief As Hope is an introspective fanfic from Jemma's POV. The author explores Jemma's observation of her predicament (her adventures on the planet and her interaction with Will). At first, I didn't notice that there were no conversations in this fanfic. To me, it seemed as if I was hearing Jemma talk to me; the fanfic is very in character (from Jemma's reactions to her insights). The best thing about this fanfic are the little things which Jemma notices about Will and herself. It's so believable, it might as well be canon.

I finished watching both series of Fullmetal Alchemist for the first time recently, first the '03 anime and then Brotherhood, and while I liked but didn't feel that strongly about Roy and Riza during the '03 series, OH MAN, I shipped the two of them together so hard in Brotherhood.

Why This Must Be Read: This story is competency porn with a grounded, underlying sense of ache. Roy and Riza go undercover on a date, and it showcases both their working relationship (and all the ways they communicate without speaking, how good they are at their jobs) and the yearning underneath it all, the few, simple moments when they can drop the act and all the times that they can’t.

Recced on LiveJournal By: blithers

Why This Must Be Read: This is such a beautifully restrained fic - there are all sorts of political and emotional currents and character notes, centered around a simple military ball. There’s Roy and General Armstrong, ridiculously dancing together in a way that nails the humor of the anime, there’s the fundamental creepiness of the Fuhrer and his son, and there’s Roy and Riza, kept apart even when so many things between them have such depth and such history.

Title: Too Much

Word Count/WIP?: 767. Complete.
Recced By: devon380black

Why This Must Be Read: The missing scene in episode 2x06 (Enter Zoom). "Too Much" gives us Iris' perspective in the aftermath of Barry's defeat. Terror, anxiety, and worry are just some of the feelings explored in this fanfic which is written with a perfectly in character Iris West. The author highlights Barry's importance in Iris' life and echoes Iris' desperation when Barry was brought to the hospital after the particle accelerator accident.
