with moonlight in your hand, by cypanache

Fandom Category: The Newsroom
Pairing: Sloan Sabbith/Don Keefer
Fic Title: with moonlight in your hand
Author: cypanache
Link: http://cypanache.livejournal.com/16735.html
Rating/Warning(s): pg-13
Genre: romance
WIP?: yes.

Why This Must Be Read: There may be other more obvious pairings in the show, but I am hands down declaring this duo my OTP for the show. The intriguing chemistry between these two characters wasn't in-your-face. In fact, it was subtle, and quiet, and gave you some ponderings throughout the season until, BHAM, it was there in the season finale. This fic shows how all of this developed, with wonderful insight into both characters and their interaction and how/why they could work despite being opposites. They're more complimentary than opposites. This fic is WIP, but the first part (5k) is so well-written that I had to recommend it for any Newsroom fans. I can't wait for the next part.

"Solecism" by Marguerite and Ryo Sen

West Wing rec for this election season!

Fandom Category: The West Wing
Pairing: Donna Moss/Josh Lyman
Fic Title: Solecism
Author: Marguerite and Ryo Sen
Link: http://national-library.net/viewstory.php?storyid=6348
Rating/Warning(s): PG, none
Genre: Missing scene, humor, light fluff
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Will Bailey watches in awe as he ends up in an overcrowded cab with Josh, Danny, Toby, and Charlie to go fetch Donna during "Inauguration" when she's taken the fall for Jack Reese's comment. And it's delightful and delicious and a little ridiculous: full of banter, some CJ/Danny bits (always my favorite), and some incredibly loopy White House staffers. Plus, since it's from Will's perspective, you get a real sense of how difficult it would be to keep up with these people.

Will slowly shook his head. "Are you aware that the whole lot of you talk very strangely?"

"Yes," Danny answered cheerily. "But you'll catch on. Just try using seven words when two would suffice."

This Doctor Who fixation of mine is taking a toll--I almost typed "Donna Noble" at least twice in this post. Although I also almost typed "Kyle Reese," so Doctor Who may not be the only thing hijacking my brain.

Circle of Magic (Tamora Pierce), 5 Recs, Trisana Chandler/Briar Moss

Oops! I missed a day, and its late tonight. Well, one day this week I'll post two fandoms! here is the fandom for today.

Fandom Category: Circle of Magic (Tamora Pierce - Emelan series)
Pairing: Trisana Chandler/Briar Moss
Fandom #: 4
Special Recs: 16-20

Fic Title: Summertime
Author: CalliopeMused
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3146943/1/Summertime
Rating/Warning(s): K+/T
Genre: Fantasy/Romance
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 16

Why This Must Be Read: This is a lovely multi-chapter fic. The author captures Tris extremely well - she is prickly, self-conscious, stubborn, and scared. She is the girl who has never been kissed; the woman who thinks she's not anybody's "type". What about the man who knows her best? The story starts in spring and ends in spring - a year of the up-and-down journey of love.

take your cues by abvj (r/nc-17 )

Fandom Category: Suits
Pairing: Donna Paulsen/Harvey Specter
Fic Title: take your cues
Author: abvj
Link: http://abvj.livejournal.com/242637.html
Rating/Warning(s): hard r/nc-17
Genre: Romance
WIP? No

Why This Must Be Read: This story is pure win and all kinds of fabulous but the thing that really sells it is the pitch-perfect Harvey (and Donna) characterisation(s). abvj fleshes out the Harvey we know from the show with wonderful little insights and moments of character growth that fit absolutely perfectly as he realises just how much Donna means to him. A truly wonderful read.
