"Luna Lovegood and the Longitudinal Letters" by primeideal (G)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Luna Lovegood/Harry Potter
Fic Title: Luna Lovegood and the Longitudinal Letters
Author: primeideal
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Epistolary, adventure
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This short but utterly delightful fic features Harry Potter and Luna Lovegood going off in search of a stolen Prime Meridian on behalf of the Association for Cooperation in Magical Emigratio (ACME). Part "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" part travel fic, and with a bit of shippy ties dashed in, "Luna Lovegood and the Longitudinal Letters" is funny and clever and perfect for a chilly December morning. Or any kind of December morning, really, I don't know what your weather is doing.

4 Classic Sarah Walker/Chuck Bartowski Recs

I saw that some people have been requesting Sarah/Chuck fics, so I thought I would dig back to a few tried and true favorites. I can rec newer stuff, if people are interested, too (including holiday-themed, if you like). But I thought a few oldies-but-goodies might not go amiss. So, without further ado...

Fandom Category: Chuck
Pairing: Sarah Walker/Chuck Bartowski
Fic Title: disinterested in everything you do
Author: Sorde
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG, non-canon death
Genre: Romance/Humor
WIP?: one-shot

Why This Must Be Read: This was a little Jossed after season four, I think, but it's still one of the most brilliant one-shots to ever come out of the fandom. Sorde has a way of cutting down to the truth of things and using so few words to do it that you just have to sit back and marvel. This story is from the point of view of Sarah's goldfish and it's just masterfully written and told. I regularly return to this story when I need a pick-me-up. It's sweet, fluffy, and it always makes me smile.

Thor: Darcy/Loki rec

Fandom Category: Thor
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Loki
Fic Title: And Begin Again
Author: Sigridhr
Rating/Warning(s): M/sexual situations
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I found this story very fresh and original for this particular pairing, which I don't see that often anymore. When Loki meets Darcy he perceives her as innocent and almost naive. When her actions prove him wrong, it rattles him and I love the way the author plays it out for both characters.
