Breathing Underwater by nekare (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Pirates of the Caribbean
Pairing: Elizabeth Swann-Turner/Will Turner
Fic Title: Breathing Underwater
Author: nekare 
Link: http://nekare.livejournal.com/208396.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: general romance, adventure, pirates!
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 10/30

Why This Must Be Read:
As much as it is about Elizabeth and Will's relationship and how it endured during the years he was on The Dutchman, it's about how Elizabeth lived her life during those years. Possibly the closest fic I've read to how things probably progress between the time Will left Elizabeth on the beach and when you see her on the cliff.

Audentes Fortuna Iuvat (Fortune Favours the Bold) by fabu (R)

Fandom Category: Pirates of the Caribbean
Pairing: Elizabeth Swann-Turner/Will Turner, Elizbaeth Swann/Jack Sparrow
Fic Title: Audentes Fortuna Iuvat (Fortune Favours the Bold)
Author: fabu 
Link: http://fabu.livejournal.com/603722.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: general romance, adventure, pirates!
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 11/30

Why This Must Be Read: What I like about this fic is that it gives equally credence to both ships, never pitting one against the other, never making one more important than the other either. Another way Elizabeth's life could have gone after the At World's End. It handles the "triangle", even though I've never seen in such defined terms, realistically with and added dose of maturity that comes from seeing that not all things are as simple as life would have you think.

The End is the Beginning, by spanglemaker9 (M)

Fandom Category: The Hunger Games
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Fic Title: The End is the Beginning
Author: spanglemaker9
Link: The End is the Beginning
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: General Romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This takes place after Mockingjay and before the epilogue, so spoilers! Because of that, I'm just gonna keep this review as vague and short as possible. If you like this book, and you like this pairing, check it out! A great oneshot, with sex, that's perfectly in character.

Point of Interest (PG) by fated_addiction

Fandom Category: Chase
Pairing: Annie Frost/Jimmy Godfrey, Annie Frost/Ben Crowley
Fic Title: Point of Interest
Author: fated_addiction
Link: http://fated-addiction.livejournal.com/671464.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG (by reccer)
Genre: Angst
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: A post-ep to "Havoc." The characterizations and relationships are wonderfully handled - the Annie/Ben dynamic, and, more impressively, the author manages to capture both the tension and the ease that exists between Annie and Jimmy. A great read.

This Side (PG), by Phrenitis

Fandom Category: Fringe
Pairing: Olivia Dunham/Peter Bishop
Fic Title: This Side
Author: phrenitis
Link: http://phrenitis.livejournal.com/163004.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angst
WIP?: Complete. Companion fics: Home and Patterns.

Why This Must Be Read: A short piece that looks at our universe from Alt!Livia's point of view - her internal struggles and the way she views and relates with the people on this side.

Sometimes, when she’s thinking, she worries it’s too easy with Peter, the way they’ve fallen together. The other Olivia has the backstory, but here she has the relationship, and the territory is new for both of them. There aren’t really rules she needs to follow, and it leaves her unsettled, writing this story with him.
