The Good Faun by StarTrekFanWriter

Fandom Category: The Chronicles of Narnia
Pairing: Lucy/Tumnus
Fic Title: The Good Faun
Author: StarTrekFanWriter
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Fantasy/Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read:  I had no idea how desperately I needed Lucy/Tumnus fanfic until I read this story. Told over many years, it builds a steady attraction between them that is both believable and sensitive to the age issue, allowing Lucy to grow up before the sexy times start. The world is as rich and fantastical as the one C.S. Lewis created, except this time around we get to see what faun sexuality might be like on a Midsummer Night's Eve! Wonderful characterizations and an entrancing world make for an unforgettable read.

Fic Title: Persephone’s Footfalls
Author: elizabeth

Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Complete in five parts
Special Rec: 31/31

Why This Must Be Read: for my last rec, i bring you the first fanfic that i ever really loved. i believe that i read this either in 1999 or 2000, which dates me terribly, but anyway. this is a beautiful roswell au that is based on the legend of persephone and hades. it is so spectacularly written that i think someone who had never even watched the show would find it interesting. if anything, it's more of a fanfic of the myth than the show. it is slow in a delicious sort of way, filled with rounded characters and a very erotic undertone. it is a fabulous read, and i'm grateful for it to this day, since it started my interest in fanfic.

thanks so much for letting me be your reccer for october, it was really fun to go through and dig up my faves. have a happy halloween, het_reccers!
