Anne of Green Gables, 5 recs, multiple pairings

1. Fandom Category: Anne of Green Gables
Pairing: Not really evident at first, but Walter/Una
Fic Title: Rilla Blythe's Wedding: A Not Entirely Comprehensive Account (special rec: 4/30)
Author: Scylla
Link: Rilla Blythe's Wedding: A Not Entirely Comprehensive Account
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Humour, drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: As with much LMM stuff, there is no smut (and for once, I'm not bothered about that - this is one fandom where, childhood nostalgia reasons aside, it would just feel wrong). In fact, the OTP kind of takes a backseat to everyone else until almost the end, by which time it is totally worth it. But the tone is near-perfect, the closest to canon I've ever seen in a fic, and the dialogue for most of the characters is spot-on - by which I mean, scarily spot-on.

Spark me Up, by korynnvictoria (NC-17)

Fandom Category: Teen Wolf
Pairing: Cora Hale/Stiles Stilinski
Fic Title: Spark me up
Author: korynnvictoria
Link: Spark me up (Ao3)
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Romance, Friendship
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:
“Y’know – if you don’t want to go home right now – or any time, really – it’s just. My door is always – well, my window, because apparently not knowing how to use doors is a Hale trait – it’s always open, is what I’m saying.” (canon divergent after 3x08)

K became fast THE writer for the Stora pairing and s/he deserves this title. She handles the characters fantastic and even Cora who almost has no canon background and personality is a wonderful character with strengths and weaknesses in this fic. The relationship between Stiles and Cora doesn't develop over night but instead they become friends and then more. It feels like a normal 'teenager love' even if the characters live in a world with werewolves, murder and panic attacks.

But personally I need to rec this fic because the insights into Stiles character are simply perfect. He and Cora are both broken and this fic shows that two broken ones can repair each other. Also I really wished we would have seen such a Cora in the show.
