Days 22-31: Multiple fandom/pairing, 12 recs

Stuck in Florida because of Hurricane Sandy, so I might as well take this time to finish up the 30 day meme.

Day 22 - A canon pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Captain America
Pairing: Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: and don't you dare be late
Author: irnan
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/433715
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: Time Travel!AU, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Peggy and Steve's doomed romance in the movies just breaks my heart, so I love seeing them get a second chance in fic. This story features what might be my favorite Peggy/Steve reunion ever, ever, EVER. Seriously, ALL THE TEARS. And it's only one part of a series called interesting landings so you can get more of Peggy and Steve's story, if you so please.

Hi mods, may I have fandom tags for The Hardy Boys and Gundam Wing? Also I need pairing tags for Fujioka Haruhi/Haninozuka "Honey" Mitsukuni, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Hikaru, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Kaoru, Fujioka Haruhi/Suou Tamaki, and Sally Po/Chang Wufei. (Don't worry, all those anime pairings have been listed in accordance with the new policy on anime pairing tags.)

The Consequences of Flight (M) by winterbones

Fandom Category: Once Upon a Time
Pairing: Princess Aurora/Captain Hook
Fic Title: The Consequences of Flight
Author: winterbones
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/537092/chapters/953783/
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Adventure/Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Princess Aurora was awakened by true love's kiss, only to find that her kingdom is in ruins and her land captured by a curse. What's worse, her handsome prince dies almost immediately after waking her. Who could possibly understand such loss? Captain Hook, that's who. A lovely, sexy story about two damaged people finding strength in each other. Addictive and lyrical, this story makes you wish this would happen on the show.

[Leverage] Nate/Sophie

Day Thirty-One: Multiple Fandoms / Multiple Pairings

Day 31 - BONUS - Wildcard/Catch up on a missed day
During this month, I recced for a different pairing each day, but I still seem to have a few pairings for which I haven't recced. I've limited myself to ten of them, but there's more. And yes, now that I realise that, I'm quite afraid by the amount of shipping I do....


Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Sophie Devereaux/Nathan Ford
Fic Title: There's nothing new under the sun
Author: alinaandalion
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, graphic sex
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I have to say that for the past few weeks Leverage pretty much pwned my mind (yes I've just discovered this show and it's awesome), and while I love both Official Couples, I just can't live without Nate/Sophie. This fic is beautiful and it shows the progression of their relationship after San Lorenzo. Nate and Sophie are just spot on and this fic is a must-read!

Mods, can tags be added for 'ship: kate harper/will bailey', 'ship: catherine parker/sydney', 'fandom: unforgettable' and 'ship: carrie wells/al burns'? :P

Day 31: Various fandoms/Various pairings, 8 recs

Previous Days Collapse )


Day 31 - BONUS - Wildcard/Catch up on a missed day

I decided to go with: Fanfics for couples that you don't ship.

Fandom Category: Yu-Gi-Oh
Pairing: Mazaki Anzu/Motou Yugi
Fic Title: Say Something
Author: Chibi's Sister
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3912678/1/Say-Something
Rating/Warning(s): K
Genre: Romance/Drama
WIP?: No. Completed at 65,000 words.

Why This Must Be Read: Anzu thinks she has everything she's ever wanted in life... until she gets invited to Yugi's wedding. Priorities and past feelings abound. It's really an ensemble story (with background Rebecca/Yugi, Serenity/Tristan, Joey/Mai and a surprise pairing), and I love that the author uses the opportunity to showcase everyone's friendships and different voices. The core triangle isn't annoying, either, but fully realised and sympathetic to everyone involved -- not to mention featuring some of the best writing I've ever read, in the sense that it rings so true to life. I cannot recommend this story highly enough, or love this story more even if it had been written with one of my OTPs as the centre. It's that good.

30 Day Shipper Meme: Day 8-14

So I am going to try and get caught-up on the meme tonight, but I decided to break them up in case I miss the deadline. Happy Halloween!

* Day 08 - A fic for a pairing about a wedding and/or baby.
Fandom Category: The Big Bang Theory
Pairing: Penny/Sheldon Cooper
Fic Title: The Punnett Square Venture
Author: boonies
Link: http://boonies.livejournal.com/296112.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Humor, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I seriously LOVE the idea of Sheldon being obsessed with procreation. This fic has it all: wonderful Penny/Sheldon banter (and hints of a blossoming realtionship between the two), Sheldon babysitting, and a fun group dynamic. This continues to be one of my favorite Sheldon/Penny fics.

30 Day Shipper Meme: Day 15-21

* Day 15 - A fic that convinced you of a pairing you previously hated.

Fandom Category: Star Trek
Pairing: Nyota Uhura/ James Kirk
Fic Title: Who Shall Inherit This Earth
Author: sinverguenza
Link: http://unfinishedline.livejournal.com/25655.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance, Adventure, Angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Everything Sin writes is excellent, which is why when she took on this pairing I gave it a chance. I was never a huge Uhura/Kirk fan, I preferred Uhura with Spock from the time that I was a little girl and was so happy when the ninth movie came out and them being a couple became canon. But then I read this story. I tell you, I fell in love with this pairing. Not only is the fic beautifully written, it makes the possibility of this couple make sense. By the end I was rooting for them and as a shipper I never looked back.

Mods, may I have tags for Fandom: Freaks and Geeks, Pairing: Lindsay Weir/Daniel Desario, Fandom: Say Anything, Pairing: Diane Court/Lloyd Dobler, Fandom: Everafter, Pairing: Danielle de Barbarac/Henry II of France? Thank you.
