4 recs, 3 fandoms  
Fandom: Veep
Pairing: Amy Brookheimer/Dan Egan
Title: i might like you better (if we slept together)
Author: diaphenia
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): teen
Word Count/WIP?: 2744
Recced on LiveJournal By: throwingpens
Special Rec 10 of 30
Why This Must Be Read: Diaphenia, in addition to being one of my best friends, writes the antagonistic relationship between Dan and Amy so beautifully. I think I only had to pressure her into writing this one for about an hour before she did it? It’s truly remarkable how she’s managed to capture the magic from the veep-verse and bring it through to five different universes, so many what-ifs. Also, Dan and Amy stuck on a freaking boat.


Fandom: Trainwreck
Pairing: Amy Townsend/Aaron Conners
Title: you can’t be a quitter if you’re caught up in glitter
Author: diaphenia
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): mature
Word Count/WIP?: 2505
Recced on LiveJournal By: throwingpens
Special Rec 11 of 30
Why This Must Be Read: So apparently I didn’t realize this until doing these recs, but I have A Thing for eloping. If there were two characters in fiction who would do this, Amy and Aaron would be at the top of the list. The As get together and feel *real* to me, which...I love. Diaphenia writes dialogue like nobody I’ve ever read in my life, and there are these conversations where they’re doing bits that feel like I might have them with someone I know, and it just feels *good.*

Fandom: Mad Men
Pairing: Peggy Olson/Stan Rizzo
Title: where evening comes, we smile
Author: lovelee
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): mature
Word Count/WIP?: 5096, WIP (10/12)
Recced on LiveJournal By: throwingpens
Special Rec 12 of 30
Why This Must Be Read: I love stories like this: they’re easy to digest, they feel like I’m just seeing a snippet of a couple’s life together. Peggy and Stan were so inevitible, I think, that I was afraid it would never happen. This fic shows how apprehensive and tentative (and also how NOT apprehensive or at all tentative) a relationship between people who know each other so well can be.

Fandom: Mad Men
Pairing: Peggy Olson/Stan Rizzo
Title: we’re up all night to get lucky
Author: lovelee
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): mature
Word Count/WIP?: 1610

Special Rec 13 of 30
Why This Must Be Read: “Peggy. You actually think that I came over in the middle of the night to kill a rat in exchange for sex.” Come on. UST, friendship, rat-murdering? What’s not to love?!!?!

Mods, all of these seem to be new fandoms/pairings to the community, so if you could add those tags, that'd be super cool.

Tags added! (The Trainwreck ones actually already existed, but I can't believe nobody's recced Veep before today!)
