Fandom Category: Bones
Pairing: Temperance Brennan/Seeley Booth
Fic Title: Lines (Make Me Want to Cross Them)
Author: nekare
Link: http://nekare.livejournal.com/368047.html
Rating/Warning(s): R/Vague spoilers for 3.09, Santa in the Slush
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:nekare writes Bones and Booth in a way that is both true to the show and somehow more. Lines is a of basketful of moments, each one moving our couple forward in small ways, until what started out as a "kiss on a dare" slides neatly into a natural (and believable relationship).

"The Ozian Declaration" [T] by elsiesnuffin

Fandom Category:The Big Bang Theory
Pairing: Sheldon/Penny
Fic Title: The Ozian Declaration
Author: [info]elsiesnuffin
Link: HERE @ ff.net
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance/Drama/Angst
WIP?: No

Why this is a must-read? Though the story spans over only eight days, it seems like a lifetime as Penny comes faces some tough decisions about her future as an actress and whether or not she should even remain in Pasadena. By introducing an fun original character—Penny's niece, Emma—to the mix, the author finally has someone else see what we, the reader/viewer have been all along with the special dynamic that Penny shares with Sheldon. There's a nice, natural pace to this story. Elsiesnuffin let's the characters and their dialogue do most of the work, and nothing about the relationships feels forced.

Also, there's a miniature golf outing, which is about when I fell in love with the story.

Conversations Between Two McKinley High Students by Glow (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Glee
Pairing: Rachel Berry/Noah Puckerman
Fic Title: Conversations Between Two McKinley High Students
Author: Glow
Link: link
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; spoilers until 1x05.
Genre: friendship, UST, humour, general romance.
WIP?: nope!

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is just wonderful and probably the fic that made I like this couple so much. It's completely adorable, true to each character, and funny as hell at times. Centered about the growing friendship between Puck and Rachel, it's really about their friendship, and the bridging the gap between two people who seem to have nothing in common and can't stand each other. It also has some lovely moments with the other characters, especially Puck's mom (who I love in this fic), and Quinn.
