Sheldon/Penny Recommendations

Sheldon/Penny is quite possibly one of my few ships across all my fandoms that isn't defined as canon, and yet I think they have one of the strongest relationships demonstrated on TV, mostly because they compliment each other better than one would suspect.

There's literally hundreds of awesome fics archived at sheldon_penny; these are just a few of my favourites, so if you're looking for more, I'd recommend starting there.

Fandom Category: The Big Bang Theory
Pairing:Sheldon/Penny
Fic Title: Two
Author: fujiidom
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Humour
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is the perfect example of how a short story, regardless of whether or not it's fanfiction, should be written. The story is both touching and funny without being over-dramatic, and contains one of, if not the best, surprise endings I've ever come across in fanfiction.

Fandom Category: The Big Bang Theory
Pairing:Sheldon/Penny
Fic Title: Flying the Coop
Author: cereal
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: I'd classify this one solely as romance, but it's far from fluff.
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: While this fic contains more of an introspective Penny than I'm used (albeit one that works perfectly), the real highlight of this fic is the way cereal has taken a small piece of canon information (that Sheldon has a brother), and worked him so perfectly into the Sheldon/Penny dynamic, using him as a catalyst for Penny's realisation of her feelings. We've never even seen this brother on the show, and yet, he feels exactly like he could fit into the plot perfectly.

Fandom Category: The Big Bang Theory
Pairing:Sheldon/Penny
Fic Title: What Science Cannot Cure
Author: galfridian
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the first fics I read, back when this show's fandom was little more than a blip in LJ's existance, and so, the fact that I still remember reading it, so long ago, says a lot for how much I appreciated Sheldon's characterisation in this. He's just so perfectly Sheldon, rational and overly-scientific and so befuddled by love.
