Day 12: Kim Possible, Avatar: the Last Airbender, 1 rec each

This day was included so the admin could post a pile of YJ stuff, wasn't it?

I'm going assume you mean "cartoons" here and recc accordingly.

Fandom Category: Kim Possible
Pairing: Kim Possible/Ron Stoppable
Fic Title: High School Evil
Author: MatthewC
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2439922/1/High-School-Evil
Rating/Warning(s): Teen. Assault, bullying that may be triggering.
Genre: Drama/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: PostStD. Bonnie pulls a stunt so outrageous, it pushes Kim to cross a line she never thought she would. But what does crossing that line say about Kim?

Kim gets Bonnie back for every time Bonnie has undercut her by letting her dark side loose. The author writes this with great awareness for bullying dynamics, which is absolutely refreshing.

Fandom Category: Avatar: the Last Airbender
Pairing: Mai/Zuko
Fic Title: The Reason You're Not Supposed to Walk on Tables
Author: Heligoland
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3544446/1/
Rating/Warning(s): Teen.
Genre: Humour
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: In which StillPrettyEvil!Zuko and Mai attend a peace summit as Fire Lord and Lady, where they are subjected to the tortures of frostbite and other people's cultures.

Because it's hilarious and the dialogue is witty and perfect, and please don't tell me that the idea of Zuko being forced to attend a peace summit and be diplomatic to people he loathes (making for great snark) doesn't appeal to you. Note: It was written around Season 2, so the canon beyond that doesn't apply.

Day Twelve: A Million Years Shown On Our Faces by tosca1390

Day 12 - A fic for your favorite Animated pairing.

Fandom Category: Sailor Moon
Pairing: Usagi Tsukino/Mamoru Chiba
Fic Title: A Million Years Shown On Our Faces
Author: tosca1390
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, a bit of angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is set in the manga-verse after the battle against Metallia and just before Usagi is reunited with the Senshi. This fic shows the aftermath of the battle for Usagi/Mamoru, but there's also a beautiful scene between Usagi and Minako about trust. Really cute fic.

Days 11 & 12: Multiple fandom/pairing, 6 recs

Day 11 - A fic for your favorite Book pairing.

Fandom Category: The Infernal Devices
Pairing: Tessa Gray/Jem Carstairs
Fic Title: Secondary Liberties
Author: angel_gidget
Link: http://angel-gidget.livejournal.com/166491.html
Rating/Warning(s): R. Warnings for sensuality
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is a gorgeous one-shot, beautifully written, brimming with sweet yearning and breathless sensuality. Reading this always reduces me into a puddle of shipper-goo. I have no doubt Cassandra Clare will put us in agony in the next book, so I'm desperately trying to savor all of Tessa and Jem's happiness before canon destroys my soul.

Day 12: Hello, Again by hello heartbreak (T)

Fandom Category: Bleach
Pairing: Rukia Kuchiki/Ichigo Kurosaki
Fic Title: Hello, Again
Author: hello heartbreak
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3792896/1/Hello_Again
Rating/Warning(s): T / character death
Genre: Humor, Romance, Post-Canon
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's the perfect ending, with Ichigo old and grey ready to die and Rukia waiting to bring him back to the Soul Society. This piece really captures their slightly odd at times relationship, leave it to Rukia and Ichigo to ruin such a solemn moment.

He doesn't bother squinting to find out where she is, because she always enters through the window. It doesn't matter where he is – his room, the kitchen, the hospital – she never uses the door.
