X-Men, 4 recs, 3 Jean Grey/Scott Summers, 1 Rogue/Gambit

I was going to post for this challenge, but exam week happened, and. Well. It's only the 18th though, so I'm squeaking in on time!

Fandom Category: X-Men (movie-verse)
Pairing: Jean Grey/Scott Summers
Fic Title: The Presence of Horses
Author: ridesandruns
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1613175/1/The_Presence_of_Horses
Rating/Warning(s): R for language. Mentioned (canon) character death.
Genre: Angst
WIP?: Nope, oneshot

Why This Must Be Read: This is hands down my favourite fanfic in all of the X-Men's various fandoms. Set after the events of X-2, Scott does his best to cope with his loss. You know the one. ridesandruns is probably best known for the witty, funny dialogue in her fanfics, but here she takes a different angle and delves into Scott's head. It's features a very powerful Scott voice, beautiful framing using his horses, and it has made me cry every single time I read it. It's definitely worth your time to read.

Honey and Clover, 2 recs, Yamada Ayumi/Nomiya Takumi

Fandom Category: Honey and Clover
Pairing: Yamada Ayumi/Nomiya Takumi
Fic Title: Cake
Author: canis_m
Link: archiveofourown.org/works/142029
Rating/Warning(s): G, None
Genre: Drama, Comedy
WIP?: No, one-shot at 1,395 words
Setting: after the series
Special Rec: 18/28

Why This Must Be Read: Pretty much everyone in Honey and Clover goes through emotional trauma, and Ayu endures more than her fair share. Her one-sided love for Mayama is difficult to witness through the early volumes...and then the playboy Nomiya enters the scene.

Nomiya became one of my favorite character in H&C, and I did end up shipping him with Ayu. Like canon, this fic is both touching and hilarious.

Fandom Category: Honey and Clover
Pairing: Yamada Ayumi/Nomiya Takumi
Fic Title: Chapter Two
Author: anime_babble
Link: archiveofourown.org/works/411600
Rating/Warning(s): G, None
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No, short one-shot at 776 words
Setting: towards the end of canon
Special Rec: 19/28

Why This Must Be Read: A sweet and piognant fic that shows the changes in Ayu over the course of a month, after Nomiya tells her he loves her. I want to hug both of them at the end! *sniffles*

Mods, may I have another set of fandom and pairing tags? Thank you!
