"Just Friends" by dentedsky (pg)

I'm so sorry I have been remiss in my reccing duties! First there was Christmas, and then I caught this fever and it gave me a horrible headache to sit in front of the computer. But I'm back now, on a sped up schedule :D

Fandom Category: Merlin
Pairing: Merlin/Morgana
Fic Title: Just Friends
Author: dentedsky
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: modern AU, superhero AU
WIP?: No.
Special Rec: 16/20

Why This Must Be Read: Maybe calling this a superhero AU is overselling it because there's not many superheroics going on (it's more of an interesting background detail, really), but it's how I got lured in so I'm dangling in front of you guys as well. This is just a cute story where Morgause sets Morgana up on a series of terrible blind dates, so in true romantic fashion, Morgana realises what she wants is right in front of her. There's no reason to mess with the classics, folks.

"Kindred" by dollsome (PG)

Fandom Category:  Merlin
Pairing:  Morgana/Merlin Emrys
Fic Title:  Kindred
Author:  dollsome 
Link:  Here
Rating/Warning(s):  Spoilers through 3x07
Genre:  Angst
WIP?:  No

Why This Must Be Read:  She likes Merlin knowing. Like most beautiful girls, she has always enjoyed an audience.  Perfectly in character and angsty, I only wish the writers were keen on going down this road with the characters.  ;)

Challenge 55: Star Trek 2009 Rec


Fandom Category: Star Trek (2009 Film)
Pairing: Sarek/Amanda Grayson 
Fic Title: The Native
Author: StarTrekFanWriter
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5566846/1/The_Native
Rating/Warning(s): T -- It does get steamy in later chapters!
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No, it's complete

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of my all-time favorite Sarek/Amanda Grayson origin stories. They start off on the wrong foot, then slowly a friendship develops that turns into something more. Both are totally in character, and the development of their relationship is believable.
