Girl by creativeslumber (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Pansy Parkinson/Ronald Weasley
Fic Title: Girl
Author: creativeslumber
Link: http://creativeslumber.livejournal.com/22867.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / language
Genre: General, Humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because Pansy Parkinson is a grade-A bitch, and yet we can't help but love her for it. She's a take it or leave it type of girl and if by the grace of God Ron and Pansy ever managed to get together this is exactly how I would imagine her acting towards Ron's family and friends.

WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: Have you ever been on the internet looking for new stories to read and found a pairing that is so completely out there that it just momentarily stops your brain and makes you go 'huh'? Well in The West Wing fandom this was just that story for me. This fic will just make you love Eleanor Bartlet and will redeem John Hoynes in any fan's eyes. Wedding, what wedding? John's Quest is a fic that has taken center stage in my own personal fanon.

to trust the moon by arias_song (pg-13)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Fleur Delacour/Bill Weasley, Nymphadora Tonks/Remus Lupin
Fic Title: To Trust the Moon
Author: arias_song
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/7spells/45809.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / spoilers for Half Blood Prince
Genre: Drama, Romance, Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: The most heart-warming scene during HBP was Fleur Delacour standing up and declaring that she was going to stay with the man she loved no matter the consequences of Bill's werewolf attack. This fic shows the first full moon after those events as they wait to see what will happen to Bill; the Remus/Tonks side story is a great contrast showing the different points both couples are at.

matters of the heart by skye5052 (t)

Fandom Category: Days of Our Lives
Pairing: Sami Brady/Lucas Roberts
Fic Title: Matters of the Heart
Author: skye5052
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2853612/1/Matters_of_the_Heart
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance, Drama
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: During their run on DOOL Sami and Lucas have been everything to each other; from friends to lovers to enemies to partners in crime these two just can't seem to get away from one another. This fic goes back in time a few years to Kate and Roman's wedding during the Salem Stalker storyline and takes a turn for the worse as Sami is stabbed by the masked villain. What makes this story a classic in the Days fandom is the changing point-of-view of each chapter; from Mimi, and Shawn, to Bo and Chloe each characters view point of Sami and Lucas is beautifully done by the author.
