The Ambassador's Bride by Devilfern, M

Fandom Category: Star Trek (Reboot)
Pairing: Amanda Grayson/Sarek
Fic Title: The Ambassador's Bride
Author: Devilfern
Rating/Warning(s): M (in later chapters)
Genre: Romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: I really love a good Amanda/Sarek origin story, and along with StarTrekFanWriter's "The Native" and Notesfromtheclassroom's "The Prodigal Son" (both of which have been recced here) this is one of my absolute favorites. This story has Sarek and Amanda meeting for the first time on Vulcan, where Amanda is part of an experimental cultural exchange. Amanda is young, eager, intelligent, and totally confused by the young ambassador's hot and cold behavior. Sarek is also portrayed as being young, and his initial reaction to being attracted to a human is...not positive. George and Winona Kirk (pre-marriage) also make welcome appearances. Lovely writing and sympathetic characters make this a wonderful read. The author is taking November off to participate in NaNoWriMo, but I have no reason to think she won't return to this story soon.

Precession by Spatz (PG)

Fandom Category: Life
Pairing: Dani Reese/Charlie Crews
Fic Title: Precession
Author: Spatz
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 11 of 22

Why This Must Be Read: This story takes place after the series finale. Dani ends up back at work before Crews and gets partnered up with Seevers. I really enjoyed Dani's interaction with Seevers and the slow realization of her feelings for Crews. The voices in this story are perfectly done and it makes me miss this show something awful.
