Why This Must Be Read: After a fun, flirty start to the second season of Agent Carter, I went in seach for great Peggy/Jarvis fics. No such luck. But since I'm shipping Peggy with almost anybody (because she is that wonderful), I gave this one a shot. It takes the story a few chapters to really settle into the sort of fic it wants to be, but once it does, it's a poignant look at a man who carries more than a few invisible scars from the war, but who tries darn hard to be an honorable man. There is a prequel of sorts called Quo Vadis?, but it's not necessary to read beforehand.

And suddenly she was looking up and smiling politely and saying Maybe another time, all right? I’ve got to meet a friend…. And he was furiously scrubbing the scene from his mind and wondering how long would it take — for God’s sake, how long would it take?

The sooner he got out of New York, the better.

Fandom: Killjoys
Pairing: Dutch/Johnny Jaqobis

Why This Must Be Read: Killjoys is the little, wonderful show that fills the Firefly-shaped hole in my heart. The main character, Dutch, can be stand-offish at times, but she's so, so vulnerable underneath. This fic is a beautiful exploration of a woman who'll burn the world to the ground to save the man she loves; even if she'll never tell him that she cares. I absolutely loved it.

“If you're watching this,” John says on her screen, “things have probably gone to shit.”

“Maybe I'm dead. Maybe I'm missing in an op. Maybe I disappeared to a desert island, but if I retired that quick I probably would have taken Dutch with me, and Dutch, you're probably the one watching.” He sighs, scrubs a hand across his eyes. He's in the upstairs room at Pree's. She recognizes the color of the smudged paint. “So, Dutch … I'm sorry. Whatever happened to me, it's not your fault, I promise, and I don't want you to wear yourself out on this. If I'm dead, I'm dead. If I'm missing, you quit when Bellus tells you.”

He knows she won't. He must know she won't. Dutch can't bear the thought of John waiting in some kind of prison of Khlyen's devising with the expectation that she wouldn't move heaven and earth to find him again

*Mods, may I have a tag for Peggy Carter/Daniel Sousa and for Killjoys and Dutch/Johnny Jaqobis?
