Three Jessica Jones recs, all Jessica Jones/Luke Cage

Jessica Jones is a dark, snarky heroine inhabiting a dangerous, violent world, locked in battle with monsters inside and out. She's just MADE for fic, particularly angsty, tear-your-heart out stuff. Three of the best so far:

Fandom: Jessica Jones
Pairing: Jessica Jones/Luke Cage
Title: Red Lace and Third Chances
Author: Nyxierose
Link: At AO3
Rating/Warning(s): M
Word Count/WIP?: 1100/No

Special Rec:  24/29

Why This Must Be Read: An exquisite little fic that aches with perfect characterisation; Jessica's hard shell cracking a little in the face of Luke Cage, and how he gives her what she needs.

Title: Strike

Why This Must Be Read: Jessica and Luke go bowling, and the result is very much not cute and fluffy. But it is a pitch-perfect exploration of how Kilgrave's abuse has affected Jessica, and how acknowledging and recognising that abuse is a step towards healing.

Title: That old evil spirit

Why This Must Be Read: Jessica faces a milestone in her relationship with Luke: having sex sober. Spot-on dialogue and characterisation makes this so real it jumps off the page, and despite its dark substrate it still manages to be funny and hot as the author tackles Jessica's alcohol dependency and PTSD. Extra kudos for what might be the most real sex scene you'll ever read in fic.

* Mods, could I have a fandom tag for Jessica Jones and a ship tag for Jessica Jones/Luke Cage please :D
