Eight Lorelai Gilmore/Luke Danes recs

There was a request for Lorelai Gilmore/Luke Danes in this month's special requests, and I thought I'd oblige. This would have been a lot simpler before Black & White & Red went the way of the dodo. I've had to use the Wayback Machine for a couple of these. Recs linking to the Wayback Machine are (*) starred.

Fandom Category: Gilmore Girls
Pairing: Lorelai Gilmore/Luke Danes
Fic Title: Any Other Day
Author: LegalBlonde
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1831868/1/Any-Other-Day
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance/Fluff
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I'll let the summary speak for itself: "Hi, Luke, I was wondering if I could get some coffee and some waffles with whipped cream and… blueberries and a side of bacon and two eggs – over easy – and possibly a meaningful relationship or just really great sex." Great dialogue, perfect Lorelai characterization, wonderful slow build tension.

Dredd, 2 recs, Cassandra Anderson/Judge Dredd

Fandom: Dredd
Pairing: Cassandra Anderson/Judge Dredd
Fic Title: Faceless
Author: fiesa
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8789333/1/Faceless
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 3/30

Why This Must Be Read: The author calls this story "fractured"; I call it brilliant. From the characterisations to the writing, this story will draw you in and keep you hooked until the final word. An excellent exploration of these characters that I wish I could have written. And did I mention that it's brilliant?





Fandom: Dredd
Pairing: Cassandra Anderson/Judge Dredd
Fic Title: I Am The Law
Author: jelenedra

Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 4/30

Why This Must Be Read: Smartly written, funny, sweet, and with a light touch of angst, this is a great look at Anderson and Dredd after the movie. jelenedra's Anderson is strong and amusing at turns, while the characterisation of Dredd is pitch-perfectly resolute. A fantastic read.
