I'd Take Care of You by bethaboo (M)

Fandom Category: New Girl
Pairing: Jess Day/Nick Miller
Fic Title: I'd Take Care of You
Author: bethaboo
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/707916
Rating/Warning(s): M for some explicit fantasies and masturbation
Genre: H/C, angst, almost fluff
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: I love pining!Nick! Jess gets the flu not long after the end of Cooler, and Nick tries to fight his natural inclination to take care of her, in a sort of deeper, much less comedic alternative to the injury scenes in Quick Hardening Caulk.

I love the Nick in this story, how he's so not in denial about his feelings for Jess, but so convinced he's not good enough for her he's just going to keep fighting them until he can't anymore.

Suits, 2 recs, Donna Paulsen/Harvey Specter

Fandom: Suits
Pairing: Donna Paulsen/Harvey Specter
Fic Title: where they touch
Author: kissingonconey
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8626732/1/where-they-touch
Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Romance
Special Rec: 21/30

Why This Must Be Read: There's nothing better, IMO, than a fic that focuses purely on the way two characters touch (or don't touch) each other, so to find a fic deliberately structured around the format "x times two characters touch"? Brilliant!

Fandom: Suits
Pairing: Donna Paulsen/Harvey Specter
Fic Title: if you're still bleeding
Author: veils
Link: http://crookedhalt.livejournal.com/16682.html
Rating/Warning(s): pg-13
Genre: Romance
Special Rec: 22/30

Why This Must Be Read: This fic has everything that makes the Harvey and Donna relationship work so well on the show -- banter, sexual tension, good writing -- and throws in some absolutely gorgeous character insights just to make the perfect even more so. A fabulous Donna and Donna/Harvey fic that traces their relationship through the years.

Safe 'Til St. Patrick's Day by EvenAngelsFall22

Fandom Category: Gilmore Girls
Pairing: Rory Gilmore/Logan Huntzberger
Fic Title: Safe 'Til St. Patrick's Day (AU)
Author: EvenAngelsFall22
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3532281/1/Safe-Til-St-Patrick-s-Day
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Every time I feel like a Gilmore Girls fic, I always turn to this one. Logan and Rory are so spot on, and so is the pacing, looking at their relationship while Logan is in London. I really wish this was how it went. Plus, its one of my favorite John Mayer songs!
