As Lovers Go by Arabesque05 (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Samurai Champloo
Pairing: Kasumi Fuu/Jin
Fic Title: As Lovers Go
Author: Arabesque05
Link: www.fanfiction.net/s/3301657/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, None
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No, one-shot at 8,087 words
Setting: begins right before the end of the anime
Special Rec: 14/28

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is written in an unusual style, almost stream-of-conscious, that makes a sweet story truly powerful. Rather than reading about the development of Fuu and Jin's relationship over time, we can experience it first-hand. An excellent example of writing outside the regular narrative box. ^^

Mods, I need yet another set of fandom and ship tags. Thank you! :D

Transcript ST245 by dracutgrl (T)

Fandom Category: Iron Man (post IM2)
Pairing: Pepper Potts/Tony Stark
Fic Title: Transcript ST245
Author: dracutgrl
Rating/Warning(s): T (for threats of violence)
Genre: humor, dialogue only
WIP?: no, oneshot

Why This Must Be Read: Pepper and Tony have been kidnapped and of course they spend more time arguing about the situation than actually doing anything about it. I can't say much else without ruining some of the fun, but this is just the perfect dialogue only fic. Nothing feels like it's missing and the fast pace only makes it feel more true to the characters. Plus, a couple SHIELD agents make cameos.

Four Times Pepper Considered Quitting and the One Time She Did by seren_ccd

This is for the person who requested Pepper/Tony. Sorry it took me so long, but I couldn't remember where I had read this fic, and I remembered just today where I had saved the link. :P

Rating/Warning(s): PG, first movieverse canon
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This nice fic show us five moments between Pepper and Tony, since the first time they met until the end of Iron Man 1. The tone is playful, their dinamic is perfectly described -Pepper's sarcasm is spot on, and Tony is as inmature but caring as we know and love about him-, and we can see that under all their differences the slow blossom of feelings they were not yet prepared to admit. Nice and short little read.
