In Plain Sight, 4 Mary/Marshall recs

syd15 requested Mary/Marshall, so here are my recs, just as I promised, bb. :)

Fandom Category: In Plain Sight
Pairing: Mary Shannon/Marshall Mann
Fic Title: Five Times Marshall Didn't Kiss Mary And One Time He Did
Author: RandomRattle (links to her website)
Link: http://randomrattle27.freeservers.com/M2-5TMDKM.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Five things meme
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: So...this is really more of an excuse to rec the author. RandomRattle was one of the most prolific Mary/Marshall writers (although she, like myself, appears to have given up on the show around the 3rd season), with about 80 stories to her name. This story is a nice little primer for her writing, showcasing her lovely prose and deft characterization. She's spun 2 of these little ficlets into long, full-blown stories (Secret Agent Mann (READ THIS ONE) and Number 84). She's written Mary and Marshall in all types of relationships--as partners, friends, friends with benefits, committed lovers, spouses, and vampire mates (yes, really, and it is long and AWESOME). She also writes incredibly researched and thrilling action/adventure stories, with epic car chases, gun fights, undercover work, you name it. So basically my advice is to read this story, then go to her website and read ALL THE FICS. All of them.
