Attack on Titan, 5 recs - Mikasa Ackerman/Levi Ackerman  
I'm starting out my month of reccing with the ship that currently dominates my life. This is the no spoilers edition (basically fics written before chapter 50 of the manga), I'll do another post towards the end of the month with newer fics.

Why This Must Be Read: This is THE fic for this ship. Written after the first season of the anime aired but before we got to the parts of the manga heavy on these two characters' interactions, it is nevertheless a fic with great characterization, pacing and plot.

Why This Must Be Read: Subtle is the best way to characterize this ship and this fic epitomizes that. It's slow and gradual building of a relationship. Again, an older fic with a wonderful characterization.

Why This Must Be Read: A perfect example of how two fairly stoic people can become an emotional support for each other.

Why This Must Be Read: Because there are horror undertones. Because the writing does great at evoking feelings of struggle and fear and hopelessness. Because even if the romance is extremely subtle, it's wonderfully done. Because it's really, really good.

Why This Must Be Read: This is the obligatory dark fic. It may not be to everyone's tastes but when both characters are canonically hailed as the 'humanity's strongest', pushing some boundaries can be interesting.
