"Rule Number Nine" by DevilDoll (NC-17)

Fandom Category: Avengers
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: Rule Number Nine
Author: DevilDoll
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/558511
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Romance
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 22 of 30

Why This Must Be Read: Out of the myriad of ships to come out of the massive and awesome Avengers fandom, I never would have guessed that pairing together Darcy and Captain America would be the one I'd fall head over heels for. (Hint: it's because they're AWESOME together.) This fic has Steve and Darcy falling into a friends with benefits relationship - I was a little skeptical of the FWB plot when I first saw the summary, but have no fear: this fic is sexy, warm, and totally right.

"The Stairs Creak As You Sleep" by a red burn (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Arrow
Pairing: Oliver Queen / Felicity Smoak
Fic Title: The Stairs Creak As You Sleep
Author: a red burn
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9065784/1/The-stairs-creak-as-you-sleep
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 / T (ff.net rating)
Genre: angst, romance
WIP?: nope; oneshot

Why This Must Be Read: It's set in a future where Oliver and Felicity are together, and it's fantastic. The prose is absolutely lovely; Oliver and Felicity are well-characterized; and the relationship between them is believable. Plus, it has this line from Felicity: "I can spot your lies a mile away; do you think I can't see the half-truths?"

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, 2 recs, Jordan McDeere/Danny Tripp & Harriet Hayes/Matt Albie

Fandom Category: Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
Pairing: Jordan McDeere/Danny Tripp, Harriet Hayes/Matt Albie
Fic Title: The bend of her hair
Author: Dipenates
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance, a tiny bit of angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I'm rewatching the show, and re-reading some fics, and this one is one of my favourite. Not to mention that it fits the current challenge. This fic is a few years after the series finale, and it deals with the two canon couples beautifully. This is what I would have loved to see had the show continued. The characters are spot-on and Becky is just so adorable. There's a tiny bit of angst as I said above because there are mentions of the series finale, and it's perfectly written.
