Various movie fandoms, 7 recs, multiple pairings  
Fandom: Pacific Rim
Pairing: Mako Mori/Hercules Hansen
Title: This One's Not Pretend series
Author: Enchantable
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/series/54062
Rating/Warning(s): Rated T-E
Word Count/WIP?: 8573/No
Recced on LiveJournal By: super_tricie341 (LJ) | blackestglass (tumblr)
Special Rec: 49 of ?

Why This Must Be Read: Set post-movie, this is a series where Mako becomes Herc's right hand woman as he navigates the responsibilities involved with being Marshal. I love the slow burn of their relationship and Herc's struggle to reconcile his feelings against his friendship with Stacker and the fact that he's known her since she was a little girl.

Pairing: Mako Mori/Hercules Hansen

Special Rec: 50 of ?

Why This Must Be Read: Post-movie, Herc and Mako take comfort in one another, but what starts as comfort sex, slowly deepens to something more. Racier and not so much with the slow burn compared to the first rec, but just as enjoyable!

Pairing: Mako Mori/Chuck Hansen
Title: Clear a Path

Special Rec: 51 of ?

Why This Must Be Read: An AU where Chuck tells Mako how he feels before they blow up Striker Eureka and Stacker saves him for Mako by activating his escape pod. I love the hints of the history between the two of them and their reunion in the middle of the ocean feels very in character for them.

Fandom: Star Trek: Alternate Original Series
Pairing: Nyota Uhura/Spock

Why This Must Be Read: I do not exaggerate when I say that after reading this story, I have been Changed as a Person. It's an Academy-era story where Spock and Uhura fake being in a relationship because the alien ambassador Spock is negotiating with for materials for the Enterprise refuses to work with anyone who isn't in a relationship. And this story is. everything. EVERYTHINGGGGG. Everything you could ever want out of a fake dating story!! 300K WORTH OF GLORIOUS SLOW BURN AND IT IS SO GOOOOOOOOD. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Pairing: Gaila/Hikaru Sulu

Why This Must Be Read: I love this story so much. Gaila, with her history of slavery and being taken advantage of by men, is quick to mistrust, but Hikaru is different from the men she's known before. This is such a sweet fic.

Fandom: Mad Max: Fury Road
Pairing: Furiosa/Max Rockatansky
Title: two creams, one sugar series

Why This Must Be Read: The first story in this series was recced on this community, but it has since expanded to include 2 more sequels. If you haven't read the story before, this is a modern AU where Furiosa is a mechanic and helps run a shelter for women escaping domestic violence and Max is a former cop turned barista. In the sequels, Max's past comes back to haunt him, with consequences for Furiosa given their relationship with one another. A coffee shop AU for this fandom shouldn't work as well as it does, but....it TOTALLY does. A fantastic read.

Fandom: Deadpool
Pairing: Vanessa Carlysle/Wade Wilson
Title: Lifeline

Why This Must Be Read: Vanessa and Wade have a Real Adult Conversation post-movie. This was the epilogue I needed, with the two of them really sitting down and talking about the consequences of Wade leaving the way he did. The character voices are spot on, the fourth wall jokes are all there, as well as so many dick jokes because Wade. In short, it's got everything you would need in a Deadpool fic.

Mods, I need a fandom tag for Deadpool. I also need pairing tags for Mako Mori/Hercules Hansen, Gaila/Hikaru Sulu, and Vanessa Carlysle/Wade Wilson.

DUUUUDE. I strongly dislike Uhura/Spock in Nu!Trek because of the teacher/student relationship, buuuut I think you're about to convert me with your rec! Fake Dating is one of my FAVORITE tropes and it fixes what I find problematic about this ship, so yay! Thanks again!

Yesssss, do ittttttt. Fwiw, Spock isn't directly her teacher anymore but her thesis advisor, but teacher/student relationships also aren't considered taboo in the academy culture the author has created. All in all, I feel like it was handled well in this story.

So many great recs nearly on a daily basis for random ships I've never thought about or haven't found much fic for, and it's thrilling my heart.

I just spent the last week in a haze as I binge-read that Spock/Uhura fic. SO DAMN GOOD. ♥

I kid :p I'm so glad you're enjoying!! I read a lot of fic and I have no concept of moderation and I like winning even when there's nothing TO win, so when I asked blithers what's the most anyone had ever recced as a special reccer and she said, 111, I was like...CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. :p

Thank you for reccing that Spock/Uhura fic. I'll have you know that I spent the last week doing nothing but bingereading, and it's actually brought me back to reading fanfic after a long hiatus (and converted me from being fond of the ship to I love it so much)

Oh man I love how many people have told me they enjoyed reading that fic!!! :D :D :D and I'm so glad you're back to enjoying fanfic!!!
