Law & Order, 4 Fics, Connie Rubirosa/Mike Cutter

Fandom Category: Law & Order (The Mothership)
Pairing: Connie Rubirosa/Mike Cutter
Fic Title: Different Meanings By the Same Word
Author: daygloparker

Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Romance/Humor
WIP?: No - One-shot

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's hilarious and so freakin' good! *ahem* It's very well-written, in fact, the way it's written is one of the things I love about it. It jumps a little in a timeline but in a very fluid way. It's from Connie's POV and is just so good, funny, touching and intelligent. Jack McCoy makes a glorious cameo along with other L&O characters.



"Rubirosa?" She nods. "Oh, so you're my..." She can tell he's not sure whether she's going to be offended if he calls her his assistant. Which she is (his assistant, that is, not offended). Sort of. Just not in the way you ordinarily use that word.

"Yeah," she says, just to save him from himself.

"Good. Good." He pauses. "Jack had nothing but praise, by the way."

"I bribed him," she deadpans.

He gives her a sardonic smile. "I knew the Rolex looked out of place."

And that's how Mike and Connie meet.

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: General/Romance
WIP?: No - One-shot

Why This Must Be Read: It's post-Dignity of season 19 and just sort of hits you in all the right places. Mike is very Mike and Connie is trying to align her own moral ethics with the job. Which is rather difficult. Especially because they're both aware of the thing between them. It's very powerful with extremely tactile descriptions. This packs a lot into a small story and it leaves you feeling almost optimistic when the episode it's based on left you feeling a bit lost.

Excerpt

“Thought you weren’t –”

“Shut up,” she mutters and takes another drink, watching him. She covers her mouth to hide a cough. The corners of his mouth are turning and she wants to be annoyed, but she can feel herself start to smile too.

“I hate you,” she decides to say too.

He laughs softly.

“You’re a terrible liar, Connie.”

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Crime/Romance, basically a case file
WIP?: No - Chaptered

Why This Must Be Read: This is my favorite of this author's due to the well put-together murder case file set during the Christmas season in Manhatten. The detectives Lupo and Bernard are in it and are fantastic, she's really got their dialogue down. It follows the same format as the show does and is an enjoyable read. Plus it's set in Manhatten at Christmas! The romance between Connie and Mike is quiet and feels very real in a will they?/won't they? way. It does a very good job of combining the grittiness of the detective work and the fluffiness of the season. It doesn't dwell on either and the result is a very fun story with an obligatory misteltoe scene that doesn't go the way you'd expect and yet is spot on!

Excerpt

“You look nice.” Mike replied. Actually, she looked beyond nice. Amazing, stunning, beautiful, gorgeous, sexy… not just nice. But it did the trick, and in spite of Connie’s best efforts, a soft pink blush dusted her face, just as it had earlier in the office when she had seen him staring. It must’ve been the holiday mood getting to her; no other time of year did he have this effect on her. She knew full well that he was attracted to her; he had only made it slightly obvious. But she had always remained professional. Where was that natural professionalism now? Yes, it must’ve been the holidays. Or that damn dress. One of the two.

WIP?: Yes, sadly, but it stops in a good place - Chaptered

Why This Must Be Read: I normally wouldn't rec a WIP, but this story manages to nail what a possible behind-the-scenes romance between Connie and Mike would entail and it is fantastic! It takes place during Season 19 and it's a realistic portrayal of them just easing into a relationship. Neither character pulls their punches, especially during cases and yet the amount they care for one another is very present and honest without either losing their ingrained (and different) moral codes. The dialogue is intelligent and the cameos by the other characters in the series are fabulous. Oh, did I mention that it has definite sizzle, as well? Because it does and rumpled button-down shirt!Mike Cutter makes a few appearances, which is a personal fave!

A very, very entertaining and sensual story that never fails to pull me in.

Excerpt (edited slightly for room)

Connie suppressed the urge to roll her eyes. “I was in preschool when you started to work here, remember?” She turned and moved away towards the elevators. His voice followed her.

“That was Estelle Adams, not me!”

She could hear his steps behind her a moment or two later, and he caught up to her just as the elevator arrived. She stared straight ahead, pressing her lips together to keep from laughing. He looked more closely at her, realizing what she was doing. Out of the corner of her eye she saw him shaking his head.

“Cheap shot, Connie.”
