Karen Darling / Nick George reccs

Fandom Category: Dirty Sexy Money
Pairing: Karen Darling / Nick George
Fic Title: Through An Open Window I Saw You
Author: bowlerhat_girl 
Link: http://bowlerhat-girl.livejournal.com/6274.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No [oneshot]

Why This Must Be Read: Karen/Nick was a bit of a guilty pleasure ship for me; when the show began I was intrigued at their backstory, but didn't really expect them to get together in the present. I read a lot of fanfiction dealing with their past, and this is one that really stands out for me. bowlerhat_girl  shows us the couple through the eyes of various members of the Darling family, who are all so brilliantly written. She has a lovely writing style and the last line kills me.

Held So Dear by zeldadestry (R)

Fandom Category: The Painted Veil
Pairing: Kitty Fane/Walter Fane
Fic Title: Held So Dear
Author: zeldadestry
Link: http://yuletidetreasure.org/archive/61/heldso.html
Rating/Warning(s): R; character death
Genre: romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Yuletide always seems to give gems for the most obscure fandoms at times-- you know those shows/movies/books that you wish there was more fic for-- and this is one of those fics. Perfect tag for the film; heartbreaking and poignant, you really feel Kitty's longing in the fic. It not only gives you some closure for the film, but it has lovely missing moments that depict wonderfully Walter and Kitty's sometimes difficult relationship.

Yes Sir, That's My Baby by ijemania (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1/Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: Samantha Carter/Rodney McKay
Fic Title: Yes Sir, That's My Baby
Author: ijemanja
Link: http://ijemanja.livejournal.com/61075.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: baby!fic, humour, romance gone wrong
WIP?: nope

Why This Must Be Read: A baby!fic about on of my favorite guilty pleasure couples: Samantha Carter and Rodney McKay. Takes place after "The Road Not Taken" and Sam has come back from with something extra than what she left with. It's cute. It's sweet, but not overly shoompy. But most importantly: SG-1 baby sits and it's HILARIOUS.
