Why This Must Be Read
: First the summary because it explains so much: It took 372 years for the red winter moon to reappear. In 2010, 13 young people are forever changed by that moon. Ensemble. Science fiction-y/supernatural/humor. Puckleberry-blinders now. McKinley Glee club and Blaine. Swear words galore. A pretty perfect depiction of what would happen if these kids ever got superpowers. Hilarious and sweet it's basically candy coated good times with superpowers.

Fandom Category: Without a Trace
Pairing: Samantha Spade/Martin Fitzgerald
Fic Title: Sinking Fast
Author: singingstarryknights

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Friendship, with a hint of something more
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 4/31

Why This Must Be Read: I fell into this fandom a little bit late -- thanks to TNT reruns -- after Sam and Martin had already broken up, and against what was probably my better judgment, I found myself completely sucked into their story. This fic is on the shorter side, but it highlights the easy banter that was so much of what I loved about the pairing, while it simultaneously adds a soft hint of both regret and hope from Martin's POV. It's a nice look into what could have happened after the breakup, after Martin's addiction, but didn't. It's hard to find lighter stories about Martin and Sam without veering into OOC territory. This manages upbeat without going over the top.

Four Harry/Hermione Recs

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Harry/Hermione
Fic Title: when we were young (and ageless)
Author: fated_addiction
Link: HERE
Rating/Warning(s): not rated
Genre: Angst/Friendship/AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A Deathly Hallows AU. Ron has left and they are children steeped in the thick of a war adults are too afraid to fight with only each other keeping themselves afloat. There is a quiet hollowness that resonates throughout this story. It also doesn't discount the importance factor of The Trio and character bashing is completely absent. The subtlety of Harry and Hermione's relationship is illustrated so brilliantly in this story it took me about three or four reads to catch all the nuances and plot. It is everything we love about this ship. In one word? Perfection. This fic has it in spades.
