Special Rec: 9/25
Fandom: Psych
Pairing: Juliet O'Hara/Shawn Spencer
Title: A Duet Is A Song For Two

Why This Must Be Read: "There are two toothbrushes in Juliet's bathroom now. One is pink. The other is Spiderman-themed and if anyone asks (and who would?), she will say it's her nephew's." Juliet and Shawn as they learn to live with each other, both figuratively and literally. This fic is mostly a fluffy relationship study. Told from both Juliet and Shawn's POV as the muse about how they have gotten to where they are now. Both characters are spot on and Shawn is hilarious as always. A great fic to read if you need a smile.

Why This Must Be Read: This is not a happy fic. It's gritty and down-to-earth with a relationship that would never work. It fits into the aftermath of the movie well and Anr did a god job with both Anderson and Dredd.

Why This Must Be Read: Another sad fic, what is up with me and angst? All of my fav het fics seen to be angst... I this one Jess if a ghost haunting her and Sam's apartment. She doesn't seem to know she dead though. This fic is chilling and sad but very well written.

"It takes three tubes of paint – three shades carelessly selected, though when she finishes Jess sees each one is progressively more red – to write Sam’s name on the wall."

Why This Must Be Read: A retelling of the movie, with Charles as a woman. Usually I'm not a fan of retellings, but this was awesome. I loved it. Charlotte is real and gritty. A woman born in a time when it would have been much easier to be a man. A great read.

I also listened to the podfic (7 hours) and loved it.

Why This Must Be Read: Bellamy is a man who's daemon doesn't fit, and Clarke is a woman trying to make peace. Post season one and everyone has daemons. This fic a wonderful. I've always loved a daemon AU and this is one of the best.

That Shawn/Juliet fic was so well done! It made me smile, and it made me want to get out my Psych DVDs and start watching again!
