Fandom Category:Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Sharon/Helo, Boomer/Tyrol; Boomer/Helo
Fic Title: Ghost

K/A - Rapture Hug

Devil Never Met, by Lyssie (R)

Fandom Category:Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Kara/Sam
Fic Title: Devil Never Met
Author: lyssie
Link: Devil Never Met
Genre: Angst

Why This Must Be Read: This takes place on the Demetrius, and Lyssie does a wonderful job of capturing the tensions in Kara and Sam's relationship - neither really knowing who they are and both using each other to cling to their former sense of identity, while at the same time portraying hints of the tenderness and connection between them. It's also pretty hot, in that painful way.

Practice Resurrection (PG) by dayspassquicker

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Laura Roslin/Bill Adama
Fic Title: Practice Resurrection
Author: dayspassquicker
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: romance, angst
WIP?: complete

Why This Must Be Read: I'm not a huge fan of fic for Roslin/Adama, but this is a favorite story of mine anyway. It's poetic and captures what I see as the push-pull of their relationship on the show. Plus it has playful banter--something I can't resist!

Cold Light of Day, by Pellucid (PG-13)

Fandom Category:Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Caprica/Tigh
Fic Title: Cold Light of Day
Author: pellucid
Link: Cold Light of Day
Genre: Angst, Character Study

Why this must be read: A perfect depiction of Saul Tigh, struggling to deal with his identity as a Cylon and his new relationship with the Cylon most responsible for destroying the human race. This is unsentimental, but strangely hopeful, and an excellent character study.

Circumstance, by Elly (M)

Fandom Category:Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Kara/Zak, Kara/Lee
Fic Title: Circumstance
Link: Circumstance
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Angst, Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is a devastating version of events in which Kara and Lee meet and fall in love - and act on it - while Kara is still with Zak. It's told from Zak's perspective, and Elly makes him a fully developed character in his own right, which is no easy task given his .05 seconds of screen-time. Bring tissues.

The Price of Supremacy, Gidget_zb

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: William Adama/Laura Roslin
Fic Title: The Price of Supremacy
Author: gidget_zb
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, there totally be secksings here.
Genre: Romance, drama.
WIP?: nope. all finished.

Why This Must Be Read: Everything gidget_zb writes for this fandom is brilliant, but I adore this one so. This fic is an AU, Laura and Bill meet years before the cylons attack and marry. The fic takes place where the mini-series starts and follows it through to the end, adding a whole new dimension on Bill and Laura's relationship during the mini-series. Its beautifully written and everything fits perfectly, and doesn't feel forced while trying to keep true to the Mini-series plot lines.

and for added bonus, if you want to read how these two kids meet in the AU, you can find the fic where Laura nearly emasculates Adar and Bill comes to rescue her (but then again, Laura never really needed saving) here

Not All That We Are, by Lizardbeth (PG)

Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Sam Anders
Fic Title: Not All That We Are
Author: lizardbeth_j
Link: Not All That We Are
Genre: AU
WIP?: Yes.

Why This Must Be Read:

I find skillful alternate universe stories among the most fascinating to read. This is an AU version of season two, where one of the Final Four - Sam Anders - knew that he was a Cylon from the moment of the attacks. It's a detailed, well-imagined depiction of the way events might have been altered.
