Why This Must Be Read:

In a small fandom heavily dominated by Wheeler/Linka, ozqueen offers readers a refreshing story that focuses on some of the sadly overlooked Planeteers. The author begins to explore the budding relationship between Gi and Kwame, who decide to make the most of each others company away from the rest of the Planeteers.

Ozqueen has a talent for reeling us into her stories and developing the characters into tangible, three-dimensional beings and this is no exception. I love the interplay between the two characters. It's very believable and as always I love how the author describes the setting, the emotions and allows the story to engulf us in the moment. The couple are cute, but there is depth too. There is personality development of Gi and Kwame, how they behave away from their duty and the others, but it still rings true to canon. 


Fandom Category: Smallville
Pairing: Chloe Sullivan/Oliver Queen
Fic Title: The Last Job You'll Ever Have
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: AU, Angst, Romance, Humor
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 19 of 31

Why This Must Be Read: 
This fic is really long. Like really, Really long. But SO worth it. It's one of the best. Seriously. Outstanding. It's an AU that starts nearing the end of the 6th season, maybe (the time frame is not really clear) and it all begins when Oliver makes Chloe a proposition that she cannot refuse. The great thing about this author is that she always brings all the Justice League together in her stories. Somehow, someway, she will make you think of them as a family. And this story in particular will leave you with a smile on your face. I guarantee it.
