The Sharp Edge Of Dreams by SGCbearcub

Fandom Category: Labyrinth
Pairing: Sarah Williams/Jareth
Fic Title: The Sharp Edge Of Dreams
Author: SGCbearcub
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: romance/angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Sincerely, it's the overall best Labirinth fic I've ever read. Ten years later the events of the movie, Sarah is still haunted by disturbing memories...and fantasies.Until Jareth's mother, Jiann,  calls her back the Underworld, to defend Jareth's right to rule. The fic gives a wonderful glimpse of Fae politics, and a convincing backstory of how Jareth ended up ruling his Goblins, and it goes ahead taking an unexpected twist again and again.The unfolding relationship between Sarah and Jareth is surprisingly mature and wonderfully complex and the background  'mythology' gives the plot a mesmerizing depth. Plus, Jiann is AWESOME.

No One Belongs Here More Than You BY tia8206

Fandom Category:lost
Pairing: Juliet Burke/James Ford
Fic Title: No One Belongs Here More Than You
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: romance, aganst, time triveling
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: LONG, exceptionally well-developed, EPIC story. Suspence and dramatic tension are built up in a crescendo that becomes so addictive than once you started reading, you can't stop until you are either exausted or finished. By official summary: Post-S5. Juliet's finally escaped the island, but facing her past, present and future all at the same time is enough to give any seasoned time traveler one hell of a headache. And whatever happened to "whatever happened, happened"?
In other words, this story is about Juliet being her incredibly strong self and surving the trials of time travel before being finally reunited with James and have the joy to introduce him to his son Jonah. Also The 'Others' Juliet befriends and lives with while struck in the past for a time are fascinating, strongly characterized guest stars.


Fandom Category: Supernatural
Pairing: Carmen Porter/Dean Winchester
Fic Title: Daydream Believer (For All The Walking World)
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Romance, Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 5 of 31

Why This Must Be Read: 
This story is one of my favorites for this fandom. Dean's been thinking about Carmen since the dream and he starts having this memories of them being together. Beautiful and painful memories that just break your heart because in the meantime he's looking for her but she doesn't actually exist. It's really angsty but also hopeful and that makes it an amazing amazing story.

Worth, Regret, and Peace by angryzen

Fandom Category: the vampire diaries
Pairing: Greta Martin/Klaus
Fic Title: Worth, Regret, and Peace
Genre: aganst, romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: It's a both lovely and tragic exploration of Greta and her relationship with Klaus. It takes place after Greta finds out that her family died to 'rescue' her from her lover clutches. The young witch must come to terms with the part she played in her family's ruin and it ain't easy. Still, this fic makes you wonder about the Martin's family dynamics while staying choerent with what the show showed and what it neglected to say. After reading this piece, I can only say i will be extremely disappointed for any other characterization of Greta or Klaus. Because this fic makes them into one badass couple, even if their relationship is not quite the focus.
