Four Kensi Blye/Marty Deeks ("NCIS: LA") recs

for April Special Requests

Fandom Category: NCIS: Los Angeles

Pairing: Kensi Blye/Marty Deeks
Fic Title:  Parenting for Dummies
Author: tobinfic
Rating/Warning(s): I'd say PG-13 for most of the fic; the last chapter is rated M.
Genre: Romance, case file
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: The scenario of Kensi and Deeks going undercover as husband and wife has been done a hundred times in this fandom, but never have I seen it done so believably.  The balance between the adorable facade they don while undercover and the dedication they have not only to their jobs but to each other is downright exquisite; we still recognize them as canonical Kensi and Deeks, but slowly as the cover falls away and the aliases bleed into every day and each other, we see that the lie isn't all that far from the truth. It's utterly engrossing and mesmerizing to see. It's one of those fics that shows you just how one word -- partner -- can be a substitute for three even stronger ones in "I love you."

[Rookie Blue] 2 Recs, Gail Peck/Luke Callaghan

In celebration of the recent news that this super cute little show will be back a whole month earlier than initially indicated (May 24th for those of you who care!), have two Rookie Blue recs.

Fandom Category | Rookie Blue
Pairing | Gail Peck/Luke Callaghan
Fic Title | So Many Things I’d Say If I Were Able
Author | catteo
Link | http://catteo.livejournal.com/35790.html
Rating/Warning(s) | R (written for porn battle 13)
Genre | Drama. Future fic
WIP? | No
Special Rec | 4/?

Why This Must Be Read | What happens in Vegas probably won't stay in Vegas... Case!fic! Which are few and far between in this fandom. And extremely well fleshed out case!fic at that. Set in a future where Luke and Gail are both detectives, this fic explores the development of their professional relationship and then neatly tips them over the edge and into something... more.

Fandom Category | Rookie Blue
Pairing | Gail Peck/Luke Callaghan
Fic Title | Never Wanna Fall Apart

Rating/Warning(s) | Barely R (according to the author - written for porn battle 13)
Genre | Drama. Smut
WIP? | No
Special Rec | 5/?

Why This Must Be Read | Perfectly in-character porny goodness. Seriously. If these two do not end up as an actual thing on this show, I'll be so freaking disappointed and this fic is one of the reasons why.

Two Tales of a Romance by Accident by EusYram (T)

Fandom Category: Once Upon A Time
Pairing: Emma Swan/Mr. Gold
Fic Title: Two Tales of a Romance by Accident
Author: EusYram

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I've always loved non-canon couples, the rub being that there is always much less fandom love and far fewer fics for them. But sometimes we get lucky, sometimes there is a fic so beautifully written, so heartbreaking, so damned good that you have to share it with everyone and hold it up as a shining example of how perfect even the most unlikely pairing can be. The characterizations are well done and by the end all I could think is my heart, my heart. Even if you don't like this particular pairing I encourage you to give the fic a try. It's that good.
