100 | on raven's wings

Mac/Dick recs.

There might some spamming today...

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Cindy "Mac" Mackenzie/Dick Casablancas, background Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: Ghost World
Author: alixnoorchis
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/veronicamarsfic/1029588.html
Rating/Warning(s): R for language; mentions of character death, rape, suicide
Genre: friendship, UST, grief, hurt/comfort
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Mac and Dick are one messed up couple with a hell of a lot of baggage behind them, all of it courtesy of Cassidy, but for some reason they intrigue me and I'm not even a big Dick fan. Still, I think this fic shows why they could work. Both of them are still in the grieving process, but they're trying to get on with their lives, Mac more productively than Dick. Great voices, there are some perfect lines scatter in the middle of this fic, which is about friendship and maybe something new.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Cindy "Mac" Mackenzie/Dick Casablancas, background Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: Inner Conflict Resolution
Author: strongly_worded

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; mentions of character death, rape, suicide
Genre: friendship, character study
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Along the vein of the last fic, this fic too is almost mostly dealing with Dick and Mac's friendship after Cassidy, but there's enough little moments to read ship from. Dick's voice is perfect here; funny mixed with mean, and mostly inappropriate. Mac is lovely, taking with ease all the crazy Dick throws her way. This is also the way I really would see their friendship/relationship going if Dick stopped his jerky ways, towards Mac, at least.

Prayer in the Night by beyond_wonder (R)

Fandom Category: Supernatural
Pairing: Jo Harvelle/Dean Winchester, Ellen Harvelle/Bobby Singer, some Sam Winchester/Ruby
Fic Title: Prayer in the Night
Author: beyond_wonder
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5311143/1/Prayer_in_the_Night
Rating/Warning(s): R; general spoilers up to s4, character death, some violence, sexual situation
Genre: romance, friendship, action adventure, general, AU
WIP?: yes, but it gets updated pretty regularly

Why This Must Be Read: I really enjoy this story because it takes the basic premise of season 4, but adds an extra player: Jo. While the fic still has to do very much with SPN s4, this is really Jo's story during the time. Jo is clever, strong, but still learning the ropes of what it means to be a hunter when the Winchester's crazy lives intersect once again with her own. After she has to deal with demons, angels, not to mention the Winchesters themselves.
