Riverrun Series, By Sophie Richard (NC-17)

Fandom Category: Firefly
Pairing: Mal/River
Fic Title: The Riverrun Series
Author: srichard
Link: Part one, the whole series
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, for violence and sex
Genre: Drama, Angst, General
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Post-movie, River leaves Serenity to keep the crew safe. Mal brings her back, and in deciding to do so, sets into motion the second War for Independence. But war is never easy and Mal and River grow closer and begin to heal each other as they struggle to keep the galaxy from coming apart at the seams. The Firefly universe is treated as such. Places visited on the show, minor characters created by Joss and the writers become vital components. Unlike many Mal/River fics, Mal/Inara isn't brushed aside, but dealt with with painful honesty, and River is never made magically sane. Both Mal and River have deep issues, but they find solace, and even humor in each other, in the midst of a war that would be lost without them.

Lead you into the night by cryptictac (PG-13)

Fandom Category: House MD
Pairing: House/Cuddy
Fic Title: Lead you into the night
Author: ticcyyy
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: angst, baby!fic
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This fic was written for this year's House Big Bang, and it's just awesome. ticcyyy wrote the characters wonderfully. Though it takes a different direction than canon, we see the not so perfect Cuddy that we had a glimpse of in Big Baby. It really shows that nothing's perfect on the first try, and that change can be good sometimes. There's tension, there's banter between House and Cuddy, and if you like that in the show, you'll like this story.
