life: crews/reese: maybe we're insecure

Life, 5 recs, Dani Reese/Charlie Crews

Fandom: Life
Pairing: Dani Reese/Charlie Crews
Fic Title: Interpersonal Hygiene
Author: [personal profile] amathela
Link: http://amathela.dreamwidth.org/176746.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 36/100

Why This Must Be Read: The shower scene in the Pilot episode was one of the first defining moments in Crews and Reese's partnership, and this fic takes that further by showing the next four times Crews and Reese also showered together. Wonderfully written, this is something I would have dearly loved to have seen on screen.

Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, 5 recs, Buffy Summers/Spike

Fandom: Buffy: The Vampire Slayer
Pairing: Buffy Summers/Spike
Fic Title: Love is Blind
Author: Avalon
Link: http://www.allaboutspike.com/fic.html?id=48
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 41/100

Why This Must Be Read: Remember those days in season five, when Spike was realising he may feel more about Buffy than just a desire to kill her, and Buffy was still totally blind to any possibility that she might feel the same? Well, this story takes that time period and puts a more literal spin on things. The characterisations and dialogue in Love is Blind ring so honestly true, you'll think you could be watching an actual episode from the show.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, 5 recs, Olivia Benson/Elliot Stabler

Fandom: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
Pairing: Olivia Benson/Elliot Stabler
Fic Title: Accidental Cuts
Author: annakovsky

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 46/100

Why This Must Be Read: Accidental Cuts is a look into Elliot's head when he was waiting to find out whether he'd been infected with HIV back in season two and matches so perfectly with that timeframe, and Elliot and Olivia's characterisations, that I often have trouble separating it from what we actually saw on screen. A terrific look at something that should definitely be considered canon.

"The Fourth Estate" by catie56 (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Pride and Prejudice
Pairing: Elizabeth Bennet/Fitzwilliam Darcy
Fic Title: The Fourth Estate
Author: catie56 (catharsis)
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/163688
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: AU, Romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Pride and Prejudice has inspired some pretty awesome AUs, and this one brings us a modern take on the story, with Darcy as an aloof Hollywood star and Elizabeth a professor at the local university. It's a fun, fast, and charming read that draws interesting parallels with the original work and has some surprisingly insightful things to say about celebrity culture and media at the same time.
