Chuck, 3 recs, various pairings

Fandom Category: Chuck
Pairing: Anna Wu/Morgan Grimes, Anna Wu/Chuck Bartowski
Fic Title: Anna saves the world. A lot.
Author: omfgsh
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Written for an "awesome ladies ficathon," this little fic does everything in its power to prove that Anna Wu is every bit as awesome as you think she is.  And that there's a reason she's so good with a camera tripod.  Bonus points to the author for calling the obviousness of Operation Bartowk

Special Rec: 32/35


Fandom Category: Chuck
Pairing: Sarah Walker/Chuck Bartowski, Ellie Bartowski-Woodcomb/Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb
Fic Title: Twas the Night
Author: GoldenGirl
Rating/Warning(s): PG
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Set in the nebulous post-Season 2/pre-Season 3 time, Devon and Sarah chat while the Bartowski siblings engage in their annual Christmas screening of The Twilight Zone.   They also drink eggnog, which results in possibly the most hilarious back-and-forth I've read in a while.  You don't really have to read past "1 am," to be honest, but it is well, well worth your time to go up to that point.  I'd also be totally up for filling in some of the blanks in their'll see why.

Special Rec: 33/35


Fandom Category: Chuck
Pairing: Diane Beckman / Roan Montgomery
Fic Title: Three Times Diane Beckman Met Roan Montgomery (and One Time She Didn't)
Author: misura
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: For what it's worth, this fic was written *before* "Chuck Versus the Seduction Impossible" aired and proved the author right. It gives a glimpse into Beckman's life pre-Chuck--her motivations and goals and independence. As we later see in the show, she certainly doesn't need a man, but a sweetly characterized Roan doesn't hurt.

Special Rec: 34/35

"Five Ways That Forced Intimacy Clichés Made Fry and Leela Do It" by lotesse (Explicit)

Fandom Category: Futurama
Pairing: Turanga Leela / Phillip J. Fry
Fic Title: Five Ways That Forced Intimacy Clichés Made Fry and Leela Do It (And One Way That Didn’t)
Author: lotesse
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, I too was skeptical of the sheer notion of Futurama fic when I first stumbled onto it.  Frankly, I'm still a little skeptical of the sheer notion of fic based on cartoons, especially explicit fic.  But gems like this prove that it can be done well, while keeping everyone in character, being hilarious, and verging on kinda hot.  Special appearance by Lrr, ruler of Omicron Persei 8.

Special Rec: 35/35

Whew, I'm done!  This reccing marathon has been a blast (mostly as a great excuse to dig up and re-read so many of my favorite fics) and I hope y'all have enjoyed it, too.
