amy & 11

Days 11-20, multiple fandoms/parings, 10 recs

* Day 11 - A fic for your favorite Book pairing.

Fandom Category: Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell
Pairing: Arabella Strange/Jonathan Strange
Fic Title: every little thing she does is magic
Author: leiascully
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Mature; no standard warnings apply; sexual content
Genre: smut
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: While I like book series like The Hunger Games, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell is one of my favorite books released in the last decade because of how the book is formatted (like a book from the 1800s) and its well-plotted narrative. This fic captures the spirit and the writing of the book perfectly. Also, smut.

* Day 12 - A fic for your favorite Animated pairing.

Fandom Category: DCU Animated Universe/Batman: The Animated Series
Pairing: Selina Kyle/Bruce Wayne
Fic Title: Damsel
Author: mithen
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: Action/Adventure
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Batman: The Animated Series is still one of my favorite cartoons. I can totally see the events of this fic (Batman catching Catwoman) happening in the cartoon canon if the cartoon was still on the air.

Days 11, 13, 18, and 24, multiple fandoms/pairings, 4 recs

Day 11 - A fic for your favorite Book pairing.

Fandom Category: Madeleine L'Engle's book universe
Pairing: Vicky Austin/Adam Eddington
Fic Title: How like a winter hath my absence been
Author: hesychasm (Jintian)
Link: Here.
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance, Friends to Lovers
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's beautiful. Adam/Vicky is the pairing of my teenage heart and I basically love all fic for them, but this one is particularly lovely. It's quiet, almost, in the way that they are in the books and it just feels like them in the best possible way.

[Murdoch Mysteries] William/Julia - In t

Day Eleven: Dr Brennan Meet Dr Brennan by LizD (PG-13)

Day 11 - A fic for your favorite Book pairing.

Fandom Category: Temperance Brennan Novels/Bones
Pairing: Temperance "Tempe" Brennan/Andrew Ryan, Temperance "Bones" Brennan/Seeley Booth
Fic Title: Dr Brennan Meet Dr Brennan
Author: LizD
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, Angst, Mystery
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: First of all, there's a serious lack of Tempe/Ryan fics out there, and someone must do something about it so the wait between novels is easier. ;) Tempe/Ryan is my ultimate book pairing, and I'm glad I've found at least a fic to rec for them. LizD is writing this fic with the idea that Tempe and Brennan are two different characters (which, when you know both characters, is true, because they're really different and not just in age). Tempe/Ryan are written beautifully, true to their characters in the book. It's set during season 6 for Bones, I think when Booth and Brennan fell apart (I haven't seen the show in years, so correct me if I'm wrong).

Can we have tags for the pairing and the fandom, please?? :D
rosa isn't here right now

Day 11: First and Last by kaze karter (K+)

Fandom Category: Bloodlines - Richelle Mead
Pairing: Sydney Sage/Adrian Ivashkov
Fic Title: First and Last
Author: kaze karter
Link: First and Last
Rating/Warning(s): K
Genre: Character Study
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Six times Adrian Ivashkov fell in love. Five times he had his heart broken.

I've recc'd this story around the place before, and for a good reason. It's so sharply accurate, with so much punch in each of its six short sections, and slips into Adrian's mind like the author herself wrote it. Easily one of the best stories in the fandom.

Day 11: as the moon was rising in your eyes by WhenLighteningStrikes (T)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Luna Lovegood/Harry Potter
Fic Title: as the moon was rising in your eyes
Author: WhenLighteningStrikes
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8281302/1/as_the_moon_was_rising_in_your_eyes
Rating/Warning(s): T / spoilers for Deathly Hallows
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Luna and Harry's relationship is just so unique, she understands him in a way that no one else in the books really does. It's bittersweet and reminds me of why I fell in love with this pairing in the first place.

He thinks his dreams would be mundane if she didn't waltz through them. Then they would be about war and blood and death and so much death and trivial, monotonous things like that. These days in his dreams he believes in magic.
