Fandom Category: Star Trek (Reboot)
Pairing: Spock/Uhura
Fic Title: in her aspect and her eyes
Author: liviapenn

Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Pre-movie, pre-ship
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: As one of the other reviewers said, this story is a perfect protrayal of "how these character fence with language; this pairing has really inspired fandom to pay extra attention to dialogue, and that's awesome." Indeed, it is. Spock and Uhura met in a quiet bookstore, pre-movie. The characterization and dialogue is fantastic. Go and read!

Cauldron, by Randomrattle (nc-17)

Fandom Category: In Plain Sight
Pairing: Mary/Marshall
Fic Title: Cauldron
Author: randomrattle
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/mary_marshall/110441.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, for sex and language
Genre: general romance,
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Summary: Mary and Marshall take the show on the road in an assignment that turns hazardous and forces them into exploring the dynamics that shape their relationship. A great look at their dynamic, and the characterization and voices are spot-on. I wasn't even looking for M/M fics, but I stumbled onto this gem, and yes. This is them. This is them as I couldn't have even imagined, but it works because the foundation is all there in the show.
