Pretty Liars→ [hanna] beautiful girl

there's a boy in town by jada-jasmine (pg-13)

Fandom Category: Pretty Little Liars
Pairing: Hanna Marin/Caleb Rivers
Fic Title: there’s a boy in town, says he’ll love me forever
Author: jada_jasmine
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (general series spoilers)
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 27/45

Why This Must Be Read: Not only does this author weave together this beautiful and heartbreaking backstory, she provides some much needed substance to my favorite ship (and one of the few reasons I watch this show). Jada humanizes both of these characters and provides more depth than us viewers will probably ever see on the show. Also, the writing is lovely and almost lyrical.
Suits→ [donnay/harvey] sucker punch

In Reverse by thedeadparrot (pg)

Fandom Category: Smallville
Pairing: Lois Lane/Clark Kent
Fic Title: In Reverse
Author: thedeadparrot
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG (Spoilers through season five)
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 28/45

Why This Must Be Read: Even though I stopped watching this show somewhere around season four, I can still appreciate a good story when I read one. This style of this fic really caught me off guard (in the best possible way) and the writing is cohesive and beautiful. The lack of truly excellent Lois/Clark fic is saddening, but this fic goes a long way to make up for it.
Criminal→ [emily] FBI

Criminal Minds, 2 recs, Emily Prentiss/Aaron Hotchner

Fandom Category: Criminal Minds
Pairing: Emily Prentiss/Aaron Hotchner
Fic Title: another apple to slice into pieces
Author: falseeeyelashes
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (slightly AU post season four)
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 29/45

Why This Must Be Read: Everything this author writes is amazing, but this is probably my favorite. I must preface this post by saying that I hardly even ship these two (although I’ve come to find out that I ship Emily Prentiss with just about anyone) but the world she creates here is so riveting and achy in the most beautiful way. The writing is sparse, not a word is ever wasted – just like the characters would want it to be. Truly excellent writing.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 (Spoilers through 5x01)
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 30/45

Why This Must Be Read: This story just hurts – in the best possible way. The author writes these two characters so honestly and wonderfully that the readers can help but think this is what is going on behind the scenes. After I read this, it honestly became head-canon for me. These two characters are too messed up for their own good, but in this story, in this universe, it works.
