Special Rec: December - 4-8/25 - Star Trek Reboot - Teen Wolf - Supernatural  
Special Rec: 4/25
Fandom: Star Trek Reboot
Pairing: Always-A-Girl!Jim Kirk/Spock
Title: of cloudless climes, and starry skies
Author: irnan

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/Very brief Kirk/Gaila
Word Count/WIP?: ~8,200/Complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: Elivira

Why This Must Be Read: This is everything you could want in the Fem!Jim fic, it had me at the first bit.

“James is a boy’s name,” the girls all sneer at her, caught between laughter and disdain. “What kind of girl has a name like James?”

Jamie draws herself up to her full height. At five and a half, it’s not much of a height, but still. “I do,” she declares with a self confidence everyone in the school will be envying by the time she’s ten. “My Dad gave it to me.”

And that is that. So there.


This fic is Jamie from her early childhood, Tarsus, and beyond. At times it is wonderfully bittersweet, and definitely worth the read. Jamie is heartbreakingly broken and this is not a fluffy happy fic, but it is interesting and well written.

I wasn't sure if I should include this, it does have a quick dalliance into the non-het territory, but it is brief and Kirk/Spock is the end pairing. Still, if anyone thinks its not okay for this comm, please say something and I'll replace it.


Special Rec: 5/25

Why This Must Be Read: Pure fluff. This fic is adorable. OFC fics are often not the best but this renewed my faith in the entire genre. Outside POV, a blind girl meets Dean in high school and, in the sequal, again later in life. It is sweet and a little sad, but mostly sweet. Sequal + more in the same 'verse are also available.

Special Rec: 6/25
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: OFC/Sam Winchester
Title: Mockingbird

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17/ Sam's not all there so it could be seen as dub-com (but not really)

Why This Must Be Read: This was the second Supernatural fanfiction I read (actually I listened to the podfic) and it will forever hold a place in my heart. It is AU after they kill the Yellow Eyed Demon, and Sam is still recovering from the events. He's not all there and a way that both sends shivers down your spine and makes you want to find out what happened to him. A quick stop in a small town leads to a break in traveling for the bays when Dean decides they need to settle down for a little bit.

I have a soft spot for really believable OCs and the ones in this fic are wonderful. Jem especially is great and fits with Sam very well. Jem is a single mother, whose husband died in a nursery fire and her and Sam help to fix each other's broken pieces realistically. Also the sex is incredibly hot, so that's a plus! (One of the things about this fic that i can't seem to forget, is that the author's actually knows what safe sex is! XD)

This fic also has a podfic, nine hours long, so great for long car rides. The mic the reader used to record is fuzzy but i stopped noticing after awhile and have listened to it multiple times.

Special Rec: 7/25
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Pairing: Lydia Martin/Stiles Stilinski
Title: Sincerely, Eternity
Author: Wednesdays

Rating/Warning(s): PG

Why This Must Be Read:

Lydia knows nothing gold can stay. (Maybe Stiles is silver.)

Lydia and Stiles from the sandbox to werewolves. Its not exactly angst, but its not happy-go-lucky either. Lydia's POV as she thinks on how Stiles has always been there, even with Jackson the the way. Bittersweet and a bit sad, this fic captures Lydia and Stiles very well. Lydia is realistic and Stiles is in character. This fic gave me shivers.

Special Rec: 8/25
Fandom: Inuyasha
Pairing: Higurashi Kagome/Sesshoumaru
Title: Embrace the Silence
Author: Trouble_In_Shangri_la
Link: http://www.dokuga.com/fanfiction/story/3612/1
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17/Medical Jargon
Word Count/WIP?: 143,272/Complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: Elivira

Why This Must Be Read: Set in the modern day, years after Kagome's adventures in the past, Kagome is a nurse at a long term care facility in Tokyo and a familiar face appears. This is pretty slow burn as Sesshoumaru recovers from both mental and physical trauma, but it is worth the wait. Features coma!Sesshoumaru, and well written OCs.

I am loving your recs this month so far! :D

I wasn't sure if I should rec this here, it does have a quick dalliance into non-het territory, but it is brief and the final pairing is het, so I figured it would be okay. If anyone has any objections, I'll replace it with another.

I did want to let you know, just for future reference, that this is absolutely okay - any sort of ship is okay as background pairings, we just ask that the main pairing be het for reccing purposes here.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you have coming up next!

Ugh! This should be good! This is my third try posting. I reused the subject from my last post the first time, and thought I'd lost all of it. I'd already retyped it all by the time it was pointed out! I feel pretty stupid...

No worries! Thanks for fixing—you even caught it before the Tumblr feed did :)

ugh, that sucks! It definitely looks good now - LJ can be a total pain sometimes. :\

Yeah, I'm still pretty new to LJ, so it happens to me a lot... I'm glad you like the recs!
