Fandom Category: Naruto
Pairing: Haruno Sakura/Rock Lee, Haruno Sakura/Nara Shikamaru, Haruno Sakura/Uchiha Sasuke, Haruno Sakura/Uzumaki Naruto, Haruno Sakura/Inuzuka Kiba, Haruno Sakura/Hyuuga Neji
Fic Title: Cataclysmic
Author: Annie Sparklecakes / practiqueal

Rating/Warning(s): T. Character deaths.
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Five boys Haruno Sakura kissed, and the one she never would.

This story deals gracefully with six very different dynamics Sakura has, or could potentially have, without falling into the trap of comparing them against each other. My absolute favourite thing is the angle it takes with Sakura. Here, Sakura's life is a tragedy, and as confusing and jagged and broken as you would expect from a ninja, and the writing, in all its starkness, is definitely strong enough to support the themes.

Day Twenty-Four: Everyone is slightly abnormal by kaitlia777 (R)

Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Castle/Sanctuary
Pairing: Martha Rodgers/James Watson
Fic Title: Everyone is slightly abnormal
Author: kaitlia777
Link: Part One | Part Two
Rating/Warning(s): R, language
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: It's hard for me to ship two people who have never met, but Martha/James just work. Really, when you think about it, it just fits, and it would explain a few things from the Castle verse. This fic is so well written, the characters are spot on, and once you start reading it, you just can't stop. And with this, I've officially recced the only two Martha/James fics out there. There should be more. ;)
