Hands that Pray, Hands that Heal, by quirkysmuse, PG

Fandom Category: V, the series
Pairing: Erica Evans/Jack Landry UST
Fic Title: Hands that Pray, Hands that Heal
Author: quirkysmuse
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: UST, AU, Future fic
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: A lovely piece. The voices here are perfectly in character, and the author captures Erica's thoughts and the taboo of her affections wonderfully. This story does a great job of showing Erica's frustration, with herself and the inability to do anything about her emotions because of the unintended chemistry between her and Jack. It shows her strengths and weakness, and the backdrop of the war against the V just manages to add a layer of intensity to it.

They started this Resistance together, and when they met others and made alliances, they were never apart (Erica made sure of that ever since Jack was attacked). Without his white collar, sometimes strangers assumed they were involved.

Burn by katjenfic (R)

Fandom Category: X-Men
Pairing: Rogue/Pyro
Fic Title: Burn
Author: katjenfic
Rating/Warning(s): R sex, language
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:
It is in the X-Men (X3: The Last Stand) movie-verse, so anyone that has seen the movie can easily pick up where this story takes off from.

This is probably the best thing to come out of that last movie. *winks* Seriously, I really enjoyed the way this story was written. I didn't want this story to end, and I still hold out hope that there may be some sort of follow up.
