Genre: Romance, SOL

Day Fourteen: What's To Happen All Happened Before by Darling Pretty (PG)

Day 14 - A fic for an Old School Fandom from back in the day.

Fandom Category: Mary Poppins
Pairing: Mary Poppins/Bert
Fic Title: What's To Happen All Happened Before
Author: Darling Pretty
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, family
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I thought for a while which pairing I could rec for this day, and then, I realised you can't get much more old school than Mary Poppins. Ten years after the end of the movie, the winds bring Mary Poppins back to the Banks who seem to have forgotten her lessons. This is a really beautiful where they're all in-character. Plus, there's the ship we all wanted to see happen, but of course P.L. Travers said that no, absolutely not, there's nothing between Mary and Bert (yeah, I don't think we've seen the same movie either :P). And now, I think I'm going to go rewatch the movie. :D

Day 14: Beauty in the Breakdown by hellokatzchen (General Audiences)

Day 14 - A fic for an Old School Fandom from back in the day.

Fandom Category: Hellblazer (comics)
Pairing: Zatanna Zatara/John Constantine
Fic Title: beauty in the breakdown
Author: hellokatzchen
Link: beauty in the breakdown
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences. Mentions of (canon) character death.
Genre: Hurt/Comfort
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: He's very clear when they first meet: "Someday I'm going to break your heart." When he's right, John Constantine is right.

While the story is listed as part of the Hellblazer fandom, the canon for this pairing that the fic draws on actually came out in 1986. What I love about this fic is the absolutely beautiful exploration of Zee and John's history, and the strength of their relationship even outside romance.
