Alone in This Story's Pages by Medie (G)

Fandom Category: Once Upon A Time
Pairing: Tinker Bell/Captain Hook
Fic Title: Alone in This Story's Pages
Author: Medie
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/543476
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: Drama
WIP?: Nope

Why This Must Be Read: Captain Hook just made his first appearance on OUaT, but already he's one of my favorites (and, I suspect, I'm not alone in that). He's the reason that I clicked on this fic, and I'm so glad I did! I love Medie's portrayal of both characters - the subtle dance between them that's as much antagonism as it is friendship. I also really like the fact that Tinker Bell is not just Peter Pan's sidekick, but a powerful magic-user in her own right with a life and a purpose outside of Peter and the Lost Boys. Their characterization may get jossed as more eps emerge, but I love that Medie has made both Hook and Tinker Bell multi-faceted, a little bit dark, and a good match.


Dearest mods, may I have a Tinker Bell/Captain Hook tag? And yes, I never thought I'd ask for such a thing. :)

Five and a Half Hours by sap1066

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Rose Tyler/The Doctor
Fic Title: Five and a Half Hours
Author: Sapp1066
Link: http://www.whofic.com/viewstory.php?sid=10188&warning=Adult
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17/M.
Genre: Retelling, AU, romance, friendship, angst.
WIP?: Complete!

Why This Must Be Read: Anyone else wish we'd gotten a bit more time with 9? This is a fairly interesting and original idea on how Rose (and later, the Doctor) spectacularly fuck up their own timelines because they've got the collective emotional IQ of an amoeba. No, amoeba's are likely pretty self-aware. Okay, of Sigmund Freud. I like this story quite a bit because it doesn't sugar coat Rose or the Doctor's OR the TARDIS' flaws, but rather leaves them out there and forges a new path on its own. (I totally need to do an AU-9 rec post some day.)

Day Twenty-Three: Five Women Daniel Jackson Didn't Date (But Should Have) by jedibuttercup (PG)

Day 23 - A pairing where one character is paired in multiple ships.

Fandom Category: Stargate SG1
Pairing: Sha're/Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter/Daniel Jackson, Janet Fraiser/Daniel Jackson, Sarah Gardner/Daniel Jackson, Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: Five Women Daniel Jackson Didn't Date (But Should Have)
Author: jedibuttercup
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG, canonical character deaths
Genre: Five things, angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Daniel is one of a few characters that I really multi-ship. Out of all the pairings listed above, only Sam/Daniel is a big no-no for me. But Daniel had chemistry (and sometimes something more) with all these women, and jedibuttercup transcribed that perfectly in this fic. Also, you do need tissues for part 1 and 3, really.

Mods, can I have tags for Sha're/Daniel Jackson and Sarah Gardner/Daniel Jackson, please?? ;)
