Various book fandoms, 9 recs, multiple pairings  
Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire- George RR Martin
Pairing: Cersei Lannister/Stannis Baratheon
Title: Lioness

Special Rec: 21 of ?

Why This Must Be Read: This is an AU where Lyanna Stark lives and Cersei married Stannis rather than Robert. This is a fascinating what-if, and surprisingly, Stannis and Cersei work together really well. Stannis recognizes her strengths and abilities and expects her to be his partner, and Cersei finds herself a husband who not only respects her but would never dishonor her. I love the push-pull of their relationship, the way they complement each other, the way they work to understand one another.


Fandom: The Baby-Sitters Club
Pairing: Stacey McGill/Sam Thomas

Why This Must Be Read: Because this is ridiculously hot, rough, make-up sex. Nnnnnnnnghhh.

Why This Must Be Read: Viktor sees Hermione again for the first time since she snuck away after a one-night stand, and he's not letting her get away again. Krum has always been my favorite of Hermione's canon love interests and I love the idea that even years afterwards, Krum--who's been courted and chased by women the world over--still only sees Hermione. And the sexy times are sexy, yussss.


Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Hermione Granger/Viktor Krum
Title: Summer in Bulgaria
Author: Inell

Why This Must Be Read: Hermione visits Viktor in the summer after sixth year. This is a lovely, gentle romance, that perfectly captures the awkward, thrilling feeling of falling in love, making out, and making love for the first time.


Fandom: Faking It-- Jennifer Crusie
Pairing: Matilda Goodnight/Davy Dempsey
Title: And To All A Goodnight
Author: freneticfloetry

Why This Must Be Read: I am partly convinced that the author is actually Jennifer Crusie in disguise because this is so pitch-perfect in terms of the narrative voice and in the character voices. Davy and the Goodnight clan pull off one more con for Christmas and the hijinks and character interactions are delightfully wacky and enjoyable. Highly recommended.


Fandom: Nation- Terry Pratchett
Pairing: Ermintrude "Daphne" Fanshaw/Mau
Title: What Waves Cannot Take

Why This Must Be Read: I...have SO MANY FEELINGS about this book, and I won't get into them here, but suffice it to say that while ultimately, I agree with the ending and that it makes sense, my shipper heart just wants my babies to get married and have babies of their own. ;_; This fic is EVERYTHING I EVER WANTED for Daphne and Mau and the author gets their voices so right and just...FEEEEEELINGSSSSSS.


Fandom: Nation- Terry Pratchett
Pairing: Ermintrude "Daphne" Fanshaw/Mau
Title: Give The World a Shape
Author: Zee/orphan account

Why This Must Be Read: One of the themes that Nation discusses is imperialism and the way we've historically dismissed the advancements and achievements of indigenous cultures. A conflict between the Nation and the Royal Society gives Daphne an excuse to go to the island and see Mau again in order to smooth over any disagreements. This is so lovely and bittersweet.


Fandom: The Infernal Devices- Cassandra Clare
Pairing: Tessa Gray/Jem Carstairs
Title: The Thread That Lines in Silver
Author: angel_gidget

Why This Must Be Read: 5 times Tessa cared for Jem during the symptoms of his illness. This author has such a beautiful way with words, and the prose is sensual and lyrical. The story itself is so tender and sexy and brimming with emotions. Just lovely.


Fandom: Sorcerer to the Crown- Zen Cho
Pairing: Prunella Gentleman/Zacharias Wythe
Title: Get Me to the Church on Time

Why This Must Be Read: Zacharias and Prunella plan their wedding. I adore this story to pieces. The author gets Prunella's irrepressible sense of mischief and delight in flouting conventions so right, and the way Zacharias can't help but be enamored by her ways. Delightful, delightful, delightful.


Mods, I need fandom tags for Faking It, Nation, and Sorcerer to the Crown. I need pairing tags for Cersei Lannister/Stannis Baratheon, Matilda Goodnight/Davy Dempsey, Ermintrude "Daphne" Fanshaw/Mau (maybe just Daphne Fanshaw/Mau?), and Prunella Gentleman/Zacharias Wythe.
