2 Brisco County Jr. Recs

Fandom Category: The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.
Pairing: Dixie Cousins/Brisco County Jr.
Fic Title: Patriarchal Blessing
Author: pepperlandgirl
Link: http://yuletidetreasure.org/archive/66/patriarchalblessing.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (mild violence)
Genre: Western/Humor/adventure/romance
WIP?: Nope!

Why This Must Be Read: Brisco is my favorite cancelled-to-soon show of all time, and this is one of the best fics out there fore it. Brisco and Dixie's relationship is beautifully realized in this years post-canonical tale, in which Bowler has to come roust Brisco out of his peaceful, domesticated life to track a criminal.

Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Western/Humor/adventure/romance/family
WIP?: Nope!

Why This Must Be Read: I'm a bit biased with this one - it was my Yuletide gift two years back. A cozy, adorable, sweet-natured, romantic story about how Dixie and Brisco's relationship might have progresed post-canon.

"How To Save a Life" by Troll Princess (R)

Fandom Category: Supernatural
Pairing: Jessica Moore/Sam Winchester
Fic Title: How To Save a Life
Author: apocalypsos (Troll Princess)
Link: http://apocalypsos.livejournal.com/1011458.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Character Study
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 25 of 30

Why This Must Be Read: Four times at college that Sam was a Winchester, whether he liked it or not. If that summary doesn't get you, I don't know what will. This story is total competency!porn, with Sam being a pocket badass despite all his efforts to leave his old life behind and fit in at Stanford. There's an aching undercurrent of inevitability in this story, and how Sam can never stop being exactly what he is, that really gets to me.
