Day 29: all over these eyes a storm is rolling over by electrumqueen (All ages)

Day 29 - A fic that best deals with that character you loved who was unfairly fridged/killed in canon.

Fandom Category: Dark is Rising Sequence
Pairing: Jane Drew/Will Stanton
Fic Title: all over these eyes a storm is rolling over
Author: electrumqueen / electrumqueen
Link: all over these eyes a storm is rolling over
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: General/AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: There was always something about Jane, Jana, Juno, Jane.

If you've ever read the five-book series, you'll know that the Drews' ending is somewhat bittersweet. As someone who loved Jane, there were a lot of lingering questions, too, about her connections with the Greenwitch and the Lady that were left unanswered. I won't say more, to avoid spoilers, but in this story things end a different way for Jane.

There is also a fanmix to this story, for those who are interested.

Day 30: Heartburn by yamikinoko

Day 30 - A fic you've read and reread a dozen times.

Fandom Category: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Pairing: Ema Skye/Klavier Gavin
Fic Title: Heartburn
Author: yamikinoko / yamikinoko
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4231110/1/Heartburn
Rating/Warning(s): K+. Spoilers through Apollo Justice
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: She doesn't have much talent but of what she does have, she has an abundance, more than enough to share.

Ema/Klavier is one of the more popular het pairings in this fandom, but this is the first story I've read where I understood why one of them had feelings for the other, and gives it actual development. It is also one of the few stories where Klavier's professional side isn't shafted in order to play up the playboy image that's so omnipresent in fandom, but rather, he gets some very insightful character work. It's a quick read -- check it out if AA is familiar to you!

Admin - Anime/Manga Names in Tags Decision

Having read comments and discussed the issue with irony_rocks we've come to decision that we're going to go forward and use Canon Naming Within the Anime.

That does mean the majority of the names in tags will have to be changed to the Last Name/First Name Japanse style of naming, but for the animes or mangas that do not rely on that style (eg. Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Final Fantasy 7, Baccano!) we will not be changing them. Also from now on we will require that when reccing that the names should be written according to the canon of the anime/manga to keep things organised when tagging.

So from now on:

Ship: Chi-Chi Son/Goku Son should be recced as Ship: Son Chi-Chi/Son Goku
Ship: Faye Valentine/Spike Spiegel should still be recced as Ship: Faye Valentine/Spike Spiegel.

eta: This should also apply to other forms of Asian media such as Jdrama and Kdramas, which I would imagine have the same issue. (I'm not sure many have been recced on the comm anyway.) So if anyone who is familiar with the dramas would please also look through the tags and point any out it would be appreciated.

Now this is going to take a while to change so please bare with us while this happens. Also acenpokerface was kind enough to wrangle up a list of names that so far need to be changed, but if you see any other in the tags that need to be alternate please let us know. If you have any more questions about this please let us know!

Day Thirty: Rites of Spring by lanna_kitty (NC-17)

Day 30 - A fic you've read and reread a dozen times.

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Elizabeth Weir/John Sheppard
Fic Title: Rites of Spring
Author: lanna_kitty
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, graphic sex
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I have to say that pretty much all of the fics that fall under today's category are for John/Elizabeth, so choosing just one was quite difficult. But this is definitely one I never tire of reading again and again. It sounds like a AMTDI fic at first, but really, it's a 'Aliens Suggested They Do It And They Did' kind of fic. ;) The characters are all spot-on, it's beautiful and sexy and hot, and all the things that we love in John/Elizabeth! And this is one of my favourite fics, period.
