Two Friday Night Lights, Coach/Mrs. Coach Recs

Fandom Category: Friday Night Lights
Pairing: Tami Taylor/Eric Taylor
Fic Title: Sunday Afternoon
Author: Kass
Link: Sunday Afternoon
Rating/Warning(s): PG, mentions of sex
Genre: Fluff, General
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Eric and Tami Taylor are one of the best written, realest married couples on TV. Quiet moments, leaning on each other, having fun together, growing old together. This tiny little slice of life fic captures that perfectly. Season 2ish fluff, background Matt/Julie.

Fandom Category: Friday Night Lights
Pairing: Tami Taylor/Eric Taylor
Fic Title: The Biggest Win
Author: shell
Link: The Biggest Win
Rating/Warning(s): PG, mentions of sex and underage drinking
Genre: Pre-Series, General
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: A beautiful little "how they met" piece. The dialogue and characterization in this is so spot on. Can't you just hear a young Kyle Chandler saying "No, listen up. You're a, you are a beautiful girl, Tami from Sweetwater High. And guys like, guys like Doug Otem, they do not, they should not hurt girls like you."

Moved to Distraction by kellifer_fic (G)

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Lindsey Novak/Evan Lorne
Fic Title: Moved to Distraction
Author: kellifer_fic
Rating/Warning(s): G, none.
Genre: Humor, fluff
WIP?: No, though the story did become the first of many in the Relationship from Scratch Series, which is ongoing.

Why This Must Be Read: This may not be the first (or last) pairing one would think of in the Stargate realm, but it has become by far one of the most stupidly cute pairings, hands down. Novak is awkward but earnest, in her own geeky genius way, and Lorne is cool and level-headed, but with a healthy sense of humor and an ease with people that draws her out of her hicupping shell. Kellifer has a gift for everyday nuance and dialog, and fleshes out these two background characters to give us a romance that is believable and wonderfully adorkable. Enjoy!
