florence + the machine (flo)

there is a light that never goes out by Snapdragons (PG)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Lily Evans/Severus Snape, Lily Evans/James Potter (implied)
Fic Title: there is a light that never goes out
Author: Snapdragons
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG, Mild Language, Sensitive Topic/Issue/Theme
Genre: Drama, Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This story sums up what I love about the Lily/Sev pairing. It never really happened and so there's this unfinished business between them. Snapdragons gives us at least something that closes it, that could've happened in canon and she does it beautifully. The description she uses for these two makes me weep.

X-Men, 5 recs, Rogue/Wolverine

Fandom: X-Men
Pairing: Rogue/Wolverine
Fic Title: Physician, heal thyself
Author: orange_crushed
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Drama
Special Rec: 61/100

Why This Must Be Read: This story is the X3 movie we should have gotten. Marie's characterisation is wonderful, the perfect continuation of the person we saw in the first two movies (honestly, I get chills just reading her shout of, "can anybody fly?" -- just perfect) and the promise of something more between her and Logan is wonderfully subtle. An excellent AU.

Where the Wind Blows by tresmechantefic (teen)

Fandom Category: Mary Poppins
Pairing: Mary Poppins/Bert
Fic Title: Where the Wind Blows
Author: tresmechantefic
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No (one-shot)

Why This Must Be Read: I have shipped these two since I first saw this movie as a little girl.  The author does a great job of keeping both Mary and Bert in character.  This story takes place many years after the movie, Mary comes to visit Bert and the ensuing conversation is both serious and whimsical.  This is such a delightfully lovely story and has become my head canon as to what happened to the two of them after the movie ended.  Enjoy!  :)

Supernatural, 5 recs, Jo Harvelle/Dean Winchester

Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Jo Harvelle/Dean Winchester
Fic Title: one to omega
Author: magneticwave
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Character Study
Special Rec: 66/100

Why This Must Be Read: magneticwave describes this as Jo's backstory in a "choose-your-own-adventure"-style ficlet and, really, that's probably the best way to put it. Filled with multiple choice and fill-in-the-blank statements, along with snippets of moments, this is a brilliant study of both Jo and her relationship with Dean; a must-read for any fan.
