July Special Recs: 4 recs, BSG, MCU, The 100  

Special Rec: 5 of 20
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica 2003
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama
Title: Watching You Without Me
Author: apodixis

Rating: Mature
Word Count: 28024 complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: lanalucy

Why This Must Be Read:

Kara and Lee meet again during a visit to the Galactica museum/old stomping grounds, then they keep running into each other. Things have changed enough maybe they can make things work this time.

It's angsty, as Kara and Lee should be, and realistic, and ends with the hope of a happily ever after.

Special Rec: 6 of 20
Fandom: MCU
Pairing: Natasha Romanov/James "Bucky" Barnes
Title: A Case of You

Why This Must Be Read:
In this sweet slow burn, Natasha is friendly with Bucky, but she really falls for him through a letter his sister sent to him way back in the day. It's silly and adorable, with both funny and angsty moments.

Special Rec: 7 of 20
Fandom: MCU
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/James "Bucky" Barnes

Why This Must Be Read:
Bucky doesn't know what to think of Darcy, but he appreciates that she treats him like she treats everyone else. Except for the cooking. It's funny and has a family of friends feel, with non-superhero-time cameos by Steve, Sam, and Jane. It's another slow burn, which I guess I was in the mood for this month. :D

Why This Must Be Read:
It's hilarious. It's also one of the hottest het things I've read without penis-in-vagina sex. And big brother Bellamy gets the last word.

The rest to come tomorrow.

Dear sweet Oz, I looooooove "A Case of You." Irnan is such a gift to the Buckynat fandom!

I guess I'll have to go find more. I love Bucky/Nat and Bucky/Darcy. But then, I love Darcy with just about anybody. lol

I've read and enjoyed a decent amount of Darcy/Steve and Darcy/Clint (with a dash of Darcy/Bruce) myself, but once you go full Bucky/Nat, you can't go back. They're just too good a pair. (Check the tag here—I've recced so much because they are the actual best ship everrrr.)
