Flash Forward: Requiem by BlackMamba_Esq

Fandom Category: Flash Forward
Pairing: Demetri/Zoey with mentions of Mark, Simon, and Al
Fic Title: Requiem
Author: blackmamba_esq
Rating/Warning(s): R - language, sexual content, violence, dark fic
Genre: Angst, Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This was hard. I knew which author I would pull, I just didn't know if it would be a Flash Forward or Ugly Betty fic. Any of my flisters know that this is a show I'm extremely frustrated by. It has so much potential and it's flatlining. Slipping deeper into the abyss each week. However Mamba does an excellent job of pulling her reader from the terrible reality of Flash Forward and into her fan fic author created world.

Cho's Demetri is my favorite character on the show. Tortured by the fact he didn't have a Flash Forward and struggling to come to grips with what that really means. This story covers all of that. How he is so consumed with his lack of Flash Forward that he fails to see what's happening to those tied to them. The ones who have already began to grieve and the others who refuse to give him up without a fight.

It's vivid...clear...depressing...gut wrenching...soul aching...

You have to read it.

I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor by dollsome (PG)

Fandom Category: Modern Family
Pairing: Claire Dunphy/Phil Dunphy
Fic Title: I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
Author: dollsome
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, Humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because Phil and Claire are just so weirdly sweet on the show, and dollsome completely gets their dynamic. I love how-they-got-together stories and the thought of sixteen year old Phil having the flu but still making the effort to go to the prom with Claire just hits my romance button just right.

The first time she danced with Phil (and after sixteen years, it’s usually hard to remember the first time she anythinged with Phil), he threw up on her shoes. In the back of her head, this has more often than not seemed like a fairly accurate summation of their whole relationship, especially when he’s forgetting to take out the trash or calling Dylan “my brotha from anotha motha” or getting mesmerized by Gloria’s magnificent boobs.

Fandom Category: Grey's Anatomy
Pairing: Addison/Derek
Fic Title:Because It Happened One Night
Author: salmon_scrubs 
Rating/Warning(s): Rating varies at times, I'd say anywhere from PGish-NC17 depending on the chapter.
Genre: Angst, Romance with some Fluff thrown in

Why This Must Be Read:
The author writes some really great Addison/Derek fic. This particular one is a little different then her other ones and one of my absolute favorites. She creates a really great OC in this story who is absolutely impossible not to fall in love with. She took something Meredith once asked Derek about him and Addison and basically makes a whole story from it. 

A description from the author herself: This takes place in New York on the night that Addison slept with Mark. Meredith once asked Derek if it would have been different (between him and Addison) if they had kids. Well, this is going to explore what would have happened.

Slow Burn by xdawnfirex

Fandom Category:Castle
Pairing:Rick Castle/Kate Beckett
Fic Title:Slow Burn
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Porn, with a tiny bit of plot
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read:

Okay, I will admit up front that I am the cause of this fic. But, it's very in character and totally, totally sexy. It picks up after "Boom" and speculates on Kate living with Castle and the consequences that result from that. It's the first in a series of fics that are sexy and wonderful and very much in character. You can find links to the whole series here.
