Scarecrow and Mrs. King, 4 Recs - Amanda King/Lee Stetson  
I'm starting out with the first show that I ever taped off television in my youth. I even wrote up little blurbs to remind me what episodes were on which tape (they were reruns airing in entirely random order but I loved the show and persisted despite this). I shipped Lee and Amanda long before I (or probably anyone else) ever heard of shipping.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a well-written case fic which gives Amanda her codename in my headcanon forever. There is a nice thread of romantic attraction throughout that never seems out of character. It’s a thrilling plot with interesting and fully-fledged characters on both sides. Most notably, Amanda really shines here. She is a strong, quick-witted and determined woman who shows how tough she can be without ever betraying who she is at heart.

Why This Must Be Read: A “missing episode” postulating what helped the change between “Three Little Spies” and “All The World’s A Stage.” This has a very sweet insight into the burgeoning romance between Lee and Amanda provided via an interaction between Amanda and her eldest son, Phillip.

Why This Must Be Read: A very unique viewpoint on Amanda and Lee’s relationship at the end of the show that results in a very apropos fix-it.

Why This Must Be Read: I will never forget this fic. It is deeply moving and beautifully plotted. You will come to know and love Amanda’s family in a way the show never really gave you space to. Lee and Amanda are fully married (no subterfuge) which is lovely to see and they deal with what that means for her family in a well thought-out manner. The case they are involved in is multifaceted and thrilling as well. Many well-developed background characters (including Joe) make appearances. With all the awesome characterizations and all the nail-biting action, the author never loses the thread of how grief can change us and it’s a cathartic and powerful ride. Afterward, I always feel like I, along with the characters we know and love, can take on anything!

When you mentioned taping it, I had flashbacks to having to study for my college exams during the finale and asking my Mom to tape it for me.

She did.

Or she tried.

She tried to edit out the commercials and wound up taking all of them rather than the show.

Siiiigh.

Oh my goodness! What a sweet thought leading to an epic disaster! I would be crushed. It's so strange to remember how we feared we would never be able to see something we missed back then. Now watching something when it actually is being broadcast seems rare!

Let me know what you think of the fics if you get a chance to read them. I love sharing favorite scenes!
