DOWNTON ABBEY: M/M proposal

Various Fandoms: Downton Abbey, Fringe, Iron Man, Merlin, Bones

Ah, here is the last of my special recs for August.  I apologize for the lateness and cut it down to 21 but tried to keep a variety of fandoms and ships at least.  I'm glad I got to share some of my favorites!

Fandom Category: Downton Abbey
Pairing: Mary Crawley/Matthew Crawley
Fic Title: You & Me of the 10,000 Wars
Author: allthingsholy
Link: http://allthingsholy.livejournal.com/158762.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (R in later chapters)
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP?: Yes

Special Rec: 16/21

Why This Must Be Read: This is a modern AU where Downton Abbey becomes Downton Industries.  There are only two chapters thus far (out of a projected four), but I’m already completely taken by this author’s absolutely brilliant characterization of Mary -- a woman who can play the part of the perfect, proper eldest daughter to the tee when needed but also rejects the role, a woman who in one sense loves the glamour of the lifestyle she leads even as she cannot bear its superficiality.  Everyone else is also thoughtfully portrayed, and the writer has creatively and smoothly adapted Downton Abbey to the 21st century.

Let Me Be Your Ride Out Of Town by Empressearwig

Fandom Category: Young Justice
Pairing: Artemis Crock/Wally West
Fic Title: Let Me Be Your Ride Out Of Town
Author: Empressearwig
Link: Here.
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Roadtrip!
WIP?: No.

Summary: On the day Artemis graduates from college, there's someone in the crowd that she never expected to see. When Wally asks her to go on the cross country road trip they'd always planned, her answer surprises them both.

Why This Must Be Read: First of all, I am a sucker for a good roadtrip fanfic. Secondly, I absolutely adore the slow reveal of the reasons for why Wally and Artemis broke up prior to the opening. Third, I love that the author shows how good Wally and Artemis are together - their banter, how well they know each other– and give the audience a good chunk of word count in which these two are happy together - it's not like 'emotion problem resolved - bam, the end.'

Also, I really enjoyed Robin and Zatanna's supporting roles.
