Sarah/Derek The Tower

A Lifetime's Worth by monimala


Fandom Category: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Pairing: Sarah/Derek
Fic Title: A Lifetime's Worth
Author: monimala
Link: monimala.livejournal.com/461939.html
Rating/Warning(s): R: mild sexual content and language
Genre: angsty showery smut
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's gorgeous and hot and totally in character. Derek isn't Kyle but then Sarah isn't that Sarah of seventeen years ago and mala manages to make that distinction without ever labouring the point. And it has one of the most beautiful final lines ever.

A Little Less Conversation by monimala


Fandom Category: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Pairing: Sarah/Derek
Fic Title: A Little Less Conversation
Author: monimala
Link: monimala.livejournal.com/529627.html
Rating/Warning(s): R: mild sexual content and language
Genre: A tag for episode 2.2, Automatic for the People, If you fill a silence with unnecessary noise, you can't hear the enemy coming.
WIP?: No

Why this must be read: A companion of sorts to A Lifetime's Worth. An episode tag full of Derek/Sarah style tenderness, lovely character details and oh yeah, it's hot as hell. After the violation of Automatic..., this is the perfect resolution for Sarah.

And So It Went by indiefic


Fandom Category: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Pairing: Sarah/Derek
Fic Title: And So It Went...
Author: indiefic
Link: indiefic-scc.livejournal.com/909.html 
Link is to the first part, the rest of the series can be found here: indiefic-scc.livejournal.com/

Rating/Warning(s)
: Teen to Adult
Genre: Angst, smut... Derek didn't like Sarah...much.
WIP?: Sort of!

Why this must be read: A ongoing series of Sarah and Derek snapshot scenes. Fantastic characterisation; sweet, brittle, harsh and hot. Well worth a read to remind yourself exactly what the show lost when it decided to break apart the Connor family dynamic they'd established so beautifully in season one. Indie's one of the best S/D writers out there, and there's a tonne of good stuff on her main fic page. Enjoy.

Grin and Bear It (Woodlake: an Interlude) by everagaby


Fandom Category: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Pairing: Sarah/Derek
Fic Title: Grin and Bear It
Author: everagaby
Link: everagaby.livejournal.com/71648.html
Rating/Warning(s): Adult
Genre/Summary: Kitten sweaters, town gardens and Parent Teacher Conferences: Derek Reese's own personal hell.
WIP?: No

Why this must be read: I think I've already seen this recced on here, but not for this challenge and it's so good it bears a re-rec. Sarah and Derek playing mom and pop in small town America. It's the ideal cover. The contrast between their lives and the lives of the small community around them is perfectly drawn. Sarah Connor and Derek Reese were never meant to live on Pomegranate St and go to Meet the Parents nights, but playing a happy couple has its advantages and there is fantastically hot up-against-a-wall-sex to compensate for the kitten sweaters and marriage certs. It's funny and awesome and very very hot. Go read.

Dominus Tecum by Enchantable (R)

Fandom Category: Supernatural
Pairing: Joanna Beth Harvelle/Dean Winchester
Fic Title: Dominus Tecum
Author: Enchantable
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5525426/1/Dominus_Tecum
Rating/Warning(s): R, spoilers for 5.10, violence.
Genre: Epic, supernatural, mythology, angst, au, friendship, romance.
WIP?: Yes, but updated.

Why This Must Be Read: This is the Supernatural story I absolutely, hardcore, want to read. It's a bit of a fixit of "Abandon All Hope", but keeps that canon while heading in an entirely new direction. Basically, this is the epic Angel showdown the show keeps hinting at with Dean, Sam, and Jo all caught in the crossfire. So far, it's an absolutely fantastic ensemble piece that's made me consider watching the rest of season 5, if just in the vain hope that we get these characters on screen. I'm also 100% in love with the turn the author took Jo in and I want to print out and mail the whole thing to the show writers with a post-it on top reading: "Like this, jackasses."

Redefinition by monimala


Fandom Category: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Pairing: Sarah/Derek
Fic Title: Redefinition
Author: monimala
Link: monimala.livejournal.com/487101.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre/Summary: There are a lot of things Derek tries not to think about.
WIP?: No

Why this must be read: Because Derek is a great character - desperately short-changed by the show - and this short fic gives a great insight into him. The end section is beautifully written. monimala manages to say so much about Derek and Sarah in so little time. But then the devil is in the details and, for some reason, learning Sarah's preferred flavour of ice cream just makes me smile and then miss this show terribly.

Next to Godliness by indiefic


Fandom Category: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Pairing: Sarah/Derek
Fic Title: Next to Godliness
Author: indiefic
Link: indiefic-scc.livejournal.com/2082.html
Rating/Warning(s): Adult for explicit sexual content
Genre/Summary: But for all his persnickety, clean-freak ways, there was one thing Derek Reese preferred dirty.
WIP?: No

Why this must be read: This almost gave me a heart attack the first time I read it. And it's just awesome; explicit, naughty, funny and totally, desperately right for these two. Probably best not to read it at work though...
