renée lemaire: blue

we’ll write memories of us somewhere by fated_addiction (R)

Fandom Category: Band of Brothers
Pairing: Renée Lemaire/Eugene Roe
Fic Title: we’ll write memories of us somewhere
Author: fated_addiction

WIP?: No
Special Rec: 11/30

Why This Must Be Read: This author has Doc Roe's voice nailed down, with the cold and heartbreak that should accompany any Bastogne related story. The way he sees the seemingly never-ending war and how Renée becomes his reprieve from all the blood and death, if just for a moment, fated_addiction has done an amazing job with this piece.

And it’s here where he starts to think back to her, finally - he thinks it’s sorta that thing, you see a pretty girl and you know, you know you can’t help yourself even though there’s a something waitin’ tight and ready for him at home. It’s the hands definitely and he’s glancing down at his own, rewritin’ the sorta thing he might go and say to her.

"Renée," he mumbles.

But he likes the way
she says his name, that fancy French and none of that Cajun shit that he loves and learns. He feels his mouth start right on movin’, the slur of her name lost again to the shelter of his hands

Gotta be that he’s too far away from anything now and the loneliness is startin’ to eat way at him, thin between the trees and the occasional duck and fire from the fuckin’ Germans that like to leave him with a couple bodies or two, if he’s lucky.

They’re gonna need morphine soon.
Crossover - Buffy/Dean Lol

Mr. and Mrs. Winchester by akat (FR15)

Fandom Category: Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Supernatural
Pairing: Buffy Summers/Dean Winchester
Fic Title: Mr. and Mrs. Winchester
Author: akat
Rating/Warning(s): FR15; non-explicit sex; violence; language
Genre: Romance and action/adventure with a dash of angst
WIP?: yes

Why This Must Be Read: Akat takes what could be a tired plot device (the adaptation fic) and creates a wonderful, engaging verse based on the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith, only with Dean Winchester and Buffy Summers as the married couple with too many secrets between them. Drawing upon canon, akat keeps everybody in character while exploring the issues of a marriage based on secrets, betrayal, and that pesky thing called destiny. Akat puts her own unique twist on the events of the movie, including the famous tango scene. Even for people not into crossovers, I can't recommend this fic enough.
