[Murdoch Mysteries] William/Julia - In t

And West of the Moon by seren_ccd (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Once upon a Time
Pairing: Belle/Rumpelstiltskin
Fic Title: And West of the Moon
Author: seren_ccd
Link: Near to the Sun | Near to the Moon | A Harmony of Life
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angst, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: And West to the Moon is actually a series of three fics. I would have recced the first one the moment I finished reading it, but I thought it better to wait until the rest of the series was posted. And let me tell you that all three fics are amazing. It shows the slow and natural progression of their relationship in Storybrooke after Belle is freed from the hospital. These are the best fanfictions for this pairing as of now. If you've fallen in love with these two, you'll love this series, I can guarantee you.

I know the other pairings for this show were listed with the Storybrooke names for the characters, but I listed it as Belle/Rumpelstiltskin as we don't know Belle's name in Storybrooke for the moment. ;)

Pirates of the Caribbean, 5 recs, Elizabeth Swann/Jack Sparrow

Fandom: Pirates of the Caribbean
Pairing: Elizabeth Swann/Jack Sparrow
Fic Title: Aftermath
Author: salr323
Link: http://salr323.livejournal.com/45379.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 16/100

Why This Must Be Read: salr323 is one of the best writers around, and her Jack/Elizabeth fics are especially superb. With effective writing, pitch-perfect dialogue, moving character developments, and lovely historical insights, salr323 takes the end of At World's End and shows how Jack and Elizabeth's story's might have continued on. This is a wonderful conclusion to the trilogy, and one that I know a lot of Jack/Elizabeth fans probably hoped for.

Merlin, 3 recs, multiple pairings (AU recs)

Fandom Category: Merlin
Pairing: girl!Merlin/Arthur Pendragon
Fic Title: Less Than One Blow
Author: lady_ragnell
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/304867
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Alternate Universe, genderbending
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Perhaps one of my favorite genderbending Merlin fics ever. lady_ragnell recreates the first series of the show with a born-a-girl!Merlin, and one that finds a way to inspire Arthur Pendragon to become a better, greater man despite the difference in their circumstances. From start to finish, the story will make you smile. Such a sweet fic.
