Day 24: Passing the Years Among the Stars by jessicaqueen (pg-13)

Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Doctor Who/Firefly
Pairing: Rose Tyler/Malcolm Reynolds
Fic Title: Passing the Years Among the Stars
Author: jessicaqueen
Link: http://jessicaqueen.livejournal.com/185549.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13. Implied character deaths.
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: "Me? I’ve always been more about the journey. She’s a ship that flies and she has a captain who clearly loves her enough to keep her that way. The rest is just dressin’."

Firely and Doctor Who is a relatively common crossover choice. This pairing isn't, but this story makes me ache for what could be. Set after Journey's End and Serenity (the film), Rose finds herself on Serenity, and meets the captain. It's wonderfully intriguing to see two damaged souls as they get to know each other.

Day Twenty-Five: The More Things Change by Goldenbuttons (PG-13)

Day 25 - A fic where a canon character is paired with an original character.

Fandom Category: Sherlock BBC
Pairing: OC/John Watson
Fic Title: The More Things Change
Author: Goldenbuttons
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, character death
Genre: Angst, romance, drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I don't read that kind of fic usually, but since I wanted to rec for today too, I found this one. This is a beautiful fic that is set post 'The Reichenbach Fall' and it deals with Watson's reaction to what happened in the episode. The OC is great, I love her quite a lot, and the relationship is really believable. You'll need tissues here and there, because this is not a happy fic at times.
