A Danes Family Guide to the Rules Series, By Olivia_Jane

Fandom Category: Gilmore Girls
Pairing: Lorelai Gilmore/Luke Danes, (very low key background Rory Gilmore/Jess Mariano)
Fic Title: On Losing, Danes Family Rules, State of Grace, etc.
Author: Olivia_Jane/olivia_jane74
Link: A Danes Family Guide To The Rules Series Page at BWR
Rating/Warning(s): Overall Adult for some sex, but mostly PG-13ish. Angst, eventual minor and major character death
Genre: Romance, Angst, Drama, General, Fluff
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: In case you missed it, a couple of days ago aj posted THE Lorelai/Luke epics rec post. "Separation Anxiety"/"Everything Old is New Again" and the entire "Middle Management" series can never be recommended enough, in my opinion. They, and this fic are my big 3 for the Gilmore Girls fandom. I've re-read them a million times, and each time I find something new to love.

Unlike the others though, this one takes GG canon, warts and all, through the end of the series and builds on it beautifully.

By turns funny, heart warming, heart breaking (when the author says TISSUE WARNING she ain't messing around, folks. No matter how many times I read them, certain parts of On Losing, the end of State of Grace and several points in between always make me bawl), dramatic, and sweet, this series is EPIC, in every sense of the word, spanning the season 6 break up, the season 7 reunion, marriage, children, grandchildren, and beyond.

Also, if you're thinking about giving Middle Management and/or Danes Family Rules a try, but aren't sure, the authors of both fics wrote a pair of short, sweet, meta, cracktastic crossover ficlets that serve as an overview of both universes: Middle Mayhem & The Forms of Things Unknown [MAJOR SPOILERS FOR BOTH SERIES]
BN-Always There for You

USA Network Recs: Burn Notice

Hi there. Burn Notice is my current obsession, so I'm afraid that's all I can contribute. There's a lot of BN fic scattered around out there, mostly at ff.net. I can provide more recs if people are interested, but this should be more than enough to get you started. :)
