Blurb: I pretty much suck at any kind of summaries, especially ones that have to be so awesome as to describe the Logan and Veronica (referred to as “LoVe” in the fandom) relationship. I’ll try, though.
The characters are from the tragically canceled, Veronica Mars and they’ve been it all to each other: friends, enemies, friends, lovers, semi-enemies, semi-friends, lovers again and back around. They’re epic (see episode 2x20 for that explanation and the best group of lines you’ll ever see on TV) and no matter what happens, (in their non-existent television future) I believe they will always find their way back to each other.
And since I suck so much with words, I’m linking you to some great graphics that will show you just how much you should love them, too. Of course, since I read A LOT of fic, I’ve linked you to a few of my favorites. It’s really impossible to narrow it down to one or two favs per category, though. I love fic too much!
First and foremost, the first kiss that was heard ‘round the world.
A picspam of the “Epic Scene” in 2x22.
Another “Epic Scene” picspam. Did I mention it was one of the best scenes on TV?
A picspam of the chemistry between the actors who play them - only one of the many reasons why it’s so hard not to love them!
A picspam of the super hot bathroom makeout ; )
Now onto the fic recs!
Fic Rec #1 - Best Drama Story: Some Truths Hurt
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 and all that implies
Why This Must Be Read: This is in script format and I usually don’t care for that but, man, this author is a brilliant writer. Her plots are intriguing and well thought out but most of all, she makes you feel so much when you read this. If this were on the big screen, it would be a box office explosion! She’s also started a sequel that I haven’t had the pleasure of reading yet, but I have faith that it will not disappoint.
Honorable Mention: Take Your Time
Why This Must Be Read: This is actually from Keith’s point of view- how he sees Logan and Veronica’s relationship and the aftermath of season two. It tears you in two, but in a good way. This writer has some of the most amazing descriptions I’ve ever read. It’s like I’m looking at the characters in real life. Simply beautiful.
Fic Rec #2 - Best Action/Adventure Story: Normalized Relations
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; sex and violence
Why This Must Be Read: Man, this fic just came out of no where. I fell completely in love with it from the first couple of paragraphs. It’s not only extremely well written, but the author does a great job of balancing the action with emotion. Plus, I do love me some secret agents!
Honorable Mention: I’ve Got a Dark Alley and a Bad Idea
Author: wowsugarpuss or aka sexycereal
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; sex and violence
Why This Must Be Read: It’s awesome when Veronica gets in trouble and it’s awesome when Logan gets into trouble… but when they’re both in danger? It keeps me glued to my seat wanting more. Welcome to this fic. It’s definitely worth the ride. Also, as a side note, I’m so jealous of how prolific this author is – she can crank out awesome VM fic like nobody’s business. Of course, I do love to read all them.
Fic Rec #3 - Best Alternate Reality/Universe Story:
Rating/Warning(s): from R to NC-17. There are sexual situations and adult themes, including non-consensual sex.
Why This Must Be Read: Not only is this AU but it's wonderfully original, too. It gives the Logan and Veronica relationship an unique twist but doesn't make them any less epic!
Honorable Mention: Fear and Loathing in Neptune
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; there’s sex people.
Why This Must Be Read: I’m not sure this really belongs in this category since it’s only AU from a couple of episodes into season one and on, but I love this fic and I love this author – so I’m putting it here. Deal. Ha! This fic puts an interesting twist on the love/hate relationship that Logan and Veronica had going on. Truly, this author has some mad imagery skills, because I can practically see everything right before my eyes – and that’s a good thing! There’s a sequel that’s awesome, too!: Any Love is Good Love, Baby
Fic Rec #4 - Best Angst Story: Three A.M.
Rating/Warning(s): R; there’s language and adult situations
Why This Must Be Read: This fic is Angst with a capital A. It literally makes my heart hurt every time I read it. This author packs quite a big punch in this fic and if you feel like Logan and Veronica are more on the ruined lives side of epic, then this is a fic for you.
Honorable Mention: Forget that I rang you…
Why This Must Be Read: This is perhaps the only fic with this kind of ending that I like, and it’s ended up on my favorites of favorites list. Go figure – it’s just that good. Wonderfully written, as are all of this author’s fics, and seriously heart gripping.
Fic Rec #5 - Best Fluff Story: What is Love Worth?
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for sex
Why This Must Be Read: You cannot talk VM fluff without talking about this author. She’s the queen! It’s hard to narrow down a favorite fic of hers because she has so many great stories, but I went with this one because Logan comes to the rescue and as an added bonus – Parker gets the shaft.
Honorable Mention: The Sweet Life
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for the sex
Why This Must Be Read: This fic could be in the AU category too, because the author explores Veronica’s graduation dream from 2x22. It’s so sweet, but throws a little drama your way, too. It’s a great read!
Yeah, so on these"Best Hurt/Comfort Stories", I had to go with one of each. I just couldn’t help myself ; )
Fic Rec #6 - Best Comfort Story: The World is Flat
Rating/Warning(s): R; language, character death
Why This Must Be Read: Gah! This fic kills me! I love it because it shows us a very vulnerable side to Veronica and the reason that no matter what, Logan and Veronica will never be over.
Best Hurt Logan fic: Hollow World
Rating/Warning(s): Hard R; violence, rape, language
Why This Must Be Read: This story truly shows the depth of Logan’s character and his love for Veronica. It’s painfully clear and you’ll see what I mean. So painful, yet so, so good.
Best Hurt Veronica fic: Home to Roost
Rating/Warning(s): R; violence, language, adult situations
Why This Must Be Read: Another futurefic on my list? What? Yeah, so I love them and this one is no exception. Plus it has the added bonus of Logan being in law enforcement, which if possible, makes his hotness factor go even higher. This is a great story with some very original flashbacks.
Fic Rec #7 - Best PWP/Kink Story: Out of the Cubicle, Into the Fire
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; hello… PWP category ; ) Hehehe
Why This Must Be Read: This is an awesome little AU fic. And can you say office sex? Yeah. Enough said.
Honorable Mention: The GFE
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; um… there’s lots of sex.
Why This Must Be Read: Dang, I’m flushing just thinking about this fic. It’s a great little futurefic with some very hot sex. It throws some happy couple moments in there, too. Oh, and did I mention there was lots of yummy Logan and Veronica sex?
Fic Rec #8 - Best Long Story: Full Circle
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; language, violence, sex
Why This Must Be Read: This is probably my favorite fic of all. It’s got everything: a little angst, a little fluff, a great mystery, snark, sex, and more. Plus, it’s a reunited futurefic which is my favorite category of fics. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve read this and it never gets old.
Honorable Mention: Keeping Count of Broken Promises
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; there’s sex and more sex ; )
Why This Must Be Read: This is a great futurefic which explores an universe where Veronica chases Logan. The descriptions are great and despite the flip/flop, the characterizations are spot on. This fic really makes you route for them both.
Fic Rec #9 - Best Short Story: 5 Minutes With Logan Echolls
Rating/Warning(s): R for language and sexual references
Why This Must Be Read: It’s no secret that I love futurefics and this one is no exception. This takes a little twist, though. After all the angst and drama on my list, it’s really nice to be able to laugh at loud at this little gem. Complete genius, I say.
Fic Rec #10 - Best Overall Romantic Story: Almost a Love Story
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; not for the kiddos ; )
Why This Must Be Read: So I know I shouldn’t find this story romantic, but I do. What can I say - Duncan should never try and get in the way of epic. He should have known better. That at least makes me feel better about loving this story as much as I do. Plus it’s got a pretty darn hot sex scene. *fans self*
Honorable Mention: For Thy Sweet Love Remembered
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for adult situations and sex
Why This Must Be Read: This is an incredible story that brings out what we all love so much about Logan and Veronica - they belong together no matter the circumstances nor whomever tries to keep them apart.
The end! Now, you just try and keep from shipping LoVe after this! Ha!
