rosa isn't here right now

as the moon was rising in your eyes by youcallitwinter (pg-13, Harry Potter)

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Luna Lovegood/Harry Potter
Fic Title: as the moon was rising in your eyes
Author: youcallitwinter
Link: http://youcallitwinter.livejournal.com/68756.html
Rating/Warning(s): I'd say pg-13. post DH. Epilogue compliant. Effects of post-war trauma
Genre: Romance/Oneshot
WIP?: Nope, oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: the boy who lived and the girl who lives; it is a terrible affliction, you know, to not be able to dream.

It's beautiful, lyrical (as everything youcallitwinter writes), and a nice coda to Harry's journey after the war.

Yuletide 2012 | Up and Away by Starlingthefool

Fandom Category: A Life Less Ordinary (1997)
Pairing: Celine Naville/Robert Lewis
Fic Title: Up and Away
Author: Starlingthefool
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/599848
Rating/Warning(s): M (violence, language, innuendo)
Genre: Action, Comedy, Drama
WIP?: No - 5,493 words (oneshot)

Why This Must Be Read: A brilliant and clever followup to the quirky 1997 movie, starring Ewan McGregor and Cameron Diaz, this fic follows their characters immediately after the events of the film. Robert & Celine go on a jet-setting international honeymoon, only to encounter disappointment, relief, and continued meddling of the ethereal in their business. This author has captured not only the narrative style of the film, but also the complexity of the characters - especially gun-toting Celine, who thinks nothing of putting a few bullets in a few bullies if it means getting her husband back in one piece.

Yuletide 2012: the rope you began with (was never that straight) by Anonymous (Teen)

Fandom Category: Into the Woods
Pairing: Cinderella/Baker
Fic Title: the rope you began with (was never that straight)
Author: Anonymous
Link the rope you began with
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Family/Romance
WIP?: No

Why this must be read:

After the curtain has fallen Jack, Red, Cinderella, the baker and his son have to adjust to life together but can never quite escape the aftermath of what happened in the woods. Other fairytale characters find themselves coming to the baker's house for advice and Cinderella wonders whether it is enough to be known for being good with feelings.  I especially like that the author has named all the characters and the names work for everyone. 

Mods can we please have tags for Into the Woods and Cinderella/Baker? Thanks
