5 Juliet Burke/James Ford LOST Recs

Fandom: LOST

Pairing: Juliet Burke/James Ford
Fic Title: In Ruins
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5070803/1/In_Ruins
Rating: T
Genre: multi-chapter, drama, romance
WIP?: No

Why this must be read
: This is a
Post-Reset, Suliet story with undertones of Skate AND Jate.  “Everything disappeared in a flash, much like those he felt as they skipped from time to time, past to present; bleeding noses, bleeding hearts.”  It poetically starts, and the rest of the tale is spun just as poetically, until its very end. A mournful, desperate undercurrent accompanies James’s POV since the bomb exploding brings him and other passengers back to the LAX, every one of them remembering two lifetimes (except those who were dead before the reset, who remember nothing of Island Reality) – at least until he and Juliet find each other again. If you were to read one Sawyer/Juliet story in your life, it should be this one. The plot, the dramatic tension building up, the emotions jumping through the screen as you read, the wondrous way every character voice is captured in here… every detail is just heartbreakingly beautiful. And of course, there’s a sequel just as amazing to read when you are over: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5180058/1/In_Shallow_Seas_We_Sail

Original Sin: the dark knight fic rec

Fandom: the dark knight/batman begins Nolan-verse

 Pairing: Selina Kyle/The Joker , Bruce Wayne/Selina Kyle/The Joker
Fic Title:  Original Sin

Author: littlebatgirl
Link:  http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5446496/1/Original_Sin

Rating: T
Genre: MULTICHAPTER, romance,aganst

Why this must be read: Unique and incredibly captivating dark story where Selina, the future cat woman, and Jack, the future Joker, grow up together in a Gotham orphanage. Did you love Wuthering Heights? If you did, it’s safe bet you will love this fic as well, because the parallelism is impressive. Catherine and Heathcliff stormy, soul-deep bond, at once destructive and deeply healing, mirrors perfectly the relationship between Jack and Selina, two messed up kids who breathe each other in to survive in a world where it’s kill or be killed. At least until a traumatic event rips them apart for years, forcing each of them separately on a downward spiral that will reunite them once more after everything transpiring in ‘The Dark Knight’. Their connection is still there, alive as ever, but Jack has completely surrendered to the darkness inside him and so Selina find herself caught between a man who offers and represents salvation (Bruce) and another who will watch to burn.

two castle recs

Fandom Category: Castle
Pairing: Kate Beckett/Rick Castle
Fic Title: the confusion of straight lines
Author: missymeggins
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 8/31

Why This Must Be Read: This was the first Castle/Beckett fic I ever read that I knew I loved, and it stood out to me particularly for its characterization of Beckett. This is an AU post-episode for "Boom" which is one of my favorite episodes of the series by far. It mixes in some fun Castle family moments and great Beckett and Lanie friendship along with a very realistic take on a potential beginning for Castle and Beckett.
