Heaven Is Ringing With Your Name by bestiary, nc17

Fandom Category: The Borgias
Pairing: Lucrezia Borgia/Cesare Borgia
Fic Title: Heaven Is Ringing With Your Name
Author: bestiary
Rating/Warning(s): NC17, sex and incest
Genre: romance, aganst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: this fic takes incest and it turns it into something pure. It's also painfully poetic, intense, amazingly well-written. Cesare's chracterization in particular is so good than it's scary and it's all in his body language. Even if you are normally weirded out by incest-fics, chances are yoiu will love this anyway and you will find no reason to be weirded out. Because it's C/L down to T, and the piece is that special. Basically in this oneshot, a drunken Juan forces, in his brass manner, his siblings to confront their less platonic feelings toward each other. And everything explodes from there on...beautifully.

The only exception by darley1101, M

Fandom Category: Grey's Anatomy
Pairing: Isobel Stevens/Alex Karev
Fic Title: The Only Exception
Author: Darley1101
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6240706/1/The_Only_Exception

Why This Must Be Read:Reason 1- Because this is where the show should have headed after that shooting. Izzie comes back and faces the issues behind her leaving, stands beside her friends while they deal with the trauma, and patches up her marriage. Reason 2- Because Izzie is truly Alex's only exception, and this fic displays the hows and whys perfectly. Reason 3- Nobody writes this pairing like this author. Darley has written a frightening number of terrific Alex/Izzie fics, but i can't rec them all, unfortunately. So just check her profile and be awed by her talent.
girl awesome

X-men, 2, Gambit/Rogue and Wolverine/Storm

Fandom Category: X-men (movie)/Anita Blake
Pairing: Wolverine/Storm, minor Rogue/Gambit
Fic Title: Vermillion Nights
Author: Digital Tempest

Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Supernatural
WIP?: no; however, the sequel is.

Why This Must Be Read: This is crazy awesome. Taking up a challenge to rewrite a series using another fandom, Tempest chose to rewrite Anita Blake using the X-men. Storm is our badass protagonist, fully using her mutant powers as well as her magic and pitting her intelligence and strength against vampires thousands of years older than she is. Definitely recommend.

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's lovely. Like snapshots in a photo album, mulitcom uses conversations in a bar to highlight how they work. It's adorable and sweet and wonderful. Highly rec.
