On the Mating Habits of Muggles & Naturalist Witches by ragdoll (R/NC-17)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter

Genre: Humor, Romance
WIP?: No
Special rec: 10/25

Why This Must Be Read: I know what you’re thinking…Luna and Dudley?? But it works here. They’re a couple of 20-somethings now and Dudley has matured quite a bit. Luna, still as odd as ever, plays Jane Goodall and chooses Dudley as her subject of study. Hijinks ensue. The story is hilarious but very sweet. As a small bonus, the author poses some thought-provoking questions about why Dudley views the wizarding world with fear.

Fandom Category: Parks & Recreation
Pairing: Leslie Knope/Ben Wyatt
Fic Title: Count to Ten
Author: americnxidiot
Link: http://leslie-ben.livejournal.com/167986.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Epistolary
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Through a series of notes and text messages, americnxidiot gives us a fun, flirty, and heartfelt look at the early days of Leslie and Ben's actual-but-super-secret relationship, circa "The Bubble." The giddiness of two otherwise reasonable adults that we see onscreen is present in full force here, and I dare you not to smile when he writes, "Give me a number between one and ten."
