Bones, 4 recs, Angela/Hodgins  
For this month's "once and future fandoms" challenge, my first thought was Bones. I stopped watching the show years ago, but there was so much great fic in its earlier, UST-laden days...and not just surrounding the title character, either.

Fandom: Bones
Pairing: Angela Montenegro/Jack Hodgins
Title: nobody's up except the moon and me (and you)
Author: torigates

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Word Count/WIP?: 1,006 (complete)

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of those fics where you barely need any familiarity with canon—just an appreciation of one family finding happiness in each other and in becoming more than the sum of their parts. It's a quiet little story but so full of joy.

Why This Must Be Read: Again, I don't know where canon has taken Angela and Hodgins's son, but I like to think it's in line with this sweet five-times fic, where they're bursting with love for their kid at every turn and reveling in the places where he's exactly—or nothing—like them along the way.

Why This Must Be Read: A series of ten one-shots, these missing moments are a wonderful exploration into canon and its characters, even if some of them have since been jossed. And wow, even now it makes me miss this show.

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is admittedly more about Zack, and friend he left behind all too abruptly after season 3. But, as Hodgins slowly realizes, "Our drama fused with our work and our work with our drama," and nothing that happens in their world is totally separate from anything else, really.
