Special Request: A Song of Ice and Fire, Sansa Stark/Jaime Lannister

*this is where I say, yes, I ship it and nothing hurts*

Fandom Category: A Song of Fire and Ice
Pairing: Sansa Stark/Jaime Lannister
Fic Title: The Lion and the Wolf
Author: Bl4ckSun
Link: The Lion and the Wolf
Rating/Warning(s): M, Spoilers for the books if you hadn't read them, for the show if you hadn't watched it.  Triggery for rape, violence...
Genre: Romance/Drama/Angst
WIP?: Sadly, yes.

Why This Must Be Read:

I only started shipping Jaime/Sansa last year, hadn't read the books, but I watched the show. And I had tumblr to tell me what I needed to know...and I've been shipping them ever since. Bl4ckSun takes the story of Sansa, and puts a twist on it that is really wonderful in it's own way. I really can't say a lot without giving away the happenings of the books and/or the fic, but hopefully you'll like it.  Bl4ckSun doesn't update very often, the latest being about a week or so ago, so it's a few months between updates...sometimes longer, but it's worth it when it's updated, so worth it.

Challenge 83: Love and the Art of War by DarthAmmonite (PG)

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Ise Nanao/Zaraki Kenpachi
Fic Title: Love and the Art of War
Author: DarthAmmonite
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3891630/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Comedy, Romance
WIP?: Yes. WIP at 3 chapters, 5,657 words
Setting: doesn't matter, though there is one mention of "arrancar"

Why This Must Be Read: Would that all author-declared "crack" fics were this good! I enjoy seeing straight-forward characters show a different side, something canon doesn't always have the page count to give us, and this fic does that very well with Zaraki. While the fic is apparently abandoned, it's still a delight to read. And I really want a Zaraki-made bunny!

"Tim Bisley's (Probably) Not From Outer Space" by soupytwist (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Spaced
Pairing: Daisy Steiner/Tim Bisley
Fic Title: Tim Bisley's (Probably) Not From Outer Space
Author: soupytwist
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/298144
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Humor, Romance, Parody
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 23 of 34

Why This Must Be Read: This story is such a perfect snapshot of the Spaced we all know and love with a gentle crossover/parody of the X-Files thrown in for good measure. This was my Yuletide present this year, and I couldn't have asked for a better one - it's hilarious and sweet and does that pop-culture thing that Spaced was so, so good at.

“I thought I’d be Mulder,” he explained to Mike, as they swung back and forth, ignoring the rapidly forming queue of six year olds and their increasingly irate parents. “If Daisy’s Scully, it only makes sense that I’d be Mulder.”

“Maybe you are,” said Mike, squinting up at the pale blue sky. “Metaphorically. Or something.”
