Long-Term Memory Loss, by Omorka (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Ghostbusters (movies)
Pairing: Dana Barrett/Pete Vankman
Fic Title: Long-Term Memory Loss
Author: Omorka
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/40143
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Occult, post-canon
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A spot-on story taking place after the second movie where the Ghostbusters attempt to answer the question that you just have to figure Dana was asking herself: "Why does this keep happening to me?" The guys are great in their quest to find out why Dana seems to always end up in the center of supernatural happenings, and Dana is also perfectly written, the mixture of fear and determination that we saw in the movies. The relationship between Dana and Pete is kind of in the background, but it's presence is still very much there, especially in Pete's protectiveness of Dana as well as his reluctance to cause her any more pain than she's already been through. It's an amazing story.

Challenge 82 - whydoyouneedtoknow

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Original Female Character/Remus Lupin
Fic Title: Living With Danger
Author: whydoyouneedtoknow
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2109424/1/Living_with_Danger
Rating/Warning(s): PG13/T
Genre: AU/Drama
WIP?: No (the story is complete...the series it starts off is WIP)

Why This Must Be Read: This is the first epic story (200,000+ words) of an epic series (1,373,603 words and counting)! The author, Anne, has created a wonderfully complex HP alternate universe. She makes a couple of simple changes and the story spirals from there. This story starts six months after James and Lily Potter are murdered. What would have happened if just the right woman had met Remus Lupin? How would they have shaken up the Wizarding World? This series has become so popular that other authors are writing AUs of this AU and asking to do crossovers! If you enjoy Harry Potter, give her a chance you won't be sorry!
