Multifandom, 3 recs, various parirings  
Fandom: Angel
Pairing: Cordelia Chase/Angel, Cordelia Chase/Lindsay MacDonald
Title: As Time Goes By
Author: Yahtzee
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Word Count/WIP?: 38573, complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: zantedesha
Special Rec: 26/31

Why This Must Be Read: Combining two challenges (Special Recs and Once and Future Fics) this story by Yahtzee is a classic: A fabulous story with a bite (pun intended). All main players are represented, but it's the triangle of Cordelia, Angel and Lindsey that's the main focus. Going AU after season three of Angel and season six of Buffy, Yahtzee draws on both myths and contemporary fiction to create a story that stays with you long after you've finished reading it. Maintaining a perfect balance between romance and action, it is also my favourite Cordelia story out there.

Fandom: Doctor Who
Pairing: Rose/The Doctor
Title: Coming Around

Why This Must Be Read: I got into fandom around 2002 (accidentally stumbling onto Draco Dormiens while crusing for spoilers on the upcoming HP books) but it wasn't until the revival of Doctor Who in 2005 I really became part of fandom as a whole. Nine being my first doctor means that despite a fondness for Ten, Eleven and Twelve, nothing compares to the heartbreak I felt when Christopher Eccleston left the series. Coming Around is the pefect goodbye to Nine. Set post-Doomsday it is both a terrific resolution to Rose's arc and a glimpse of Nine just after the Time War. And while the pain of loss resonates through the story, it is ultimately a hopeful story.

Fandom: Daredevil
Pairing: Karen Page/Frank Castle
Title: and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
Author: nagia
Link: AO3
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Word Count/WIP?: 10950, complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: zantedesha
Special Rec: 28/31

Why This Must Be Read: Set in the universe of both Marvel and Pratical Magic (you know, the movie with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman) in this AU Karen Page is a witch; a witch with no heart, for love always, always comes with a heavy price in the Page family. The crossover shouldn't work, but it does - the tinge of (magical) horror turns out to be perfectly in sync with nagia's version of Karen and Frank.

The sudden return of Karen's long-buried heart throws her life into turmoil, as she realizes what it has to mean: her father has done the impossible. Her brother is alive.

I love that you're reccing so many classics that I haven't read! Both Rose/Nine and Cordy/Angel are pairings I love revisiting.

Thank you! Turned out my favourite fics were (almost) all 'older' fandoms (now I'm off hunting down Stranger Things and Rogue One fics ;))
