Adrenaline by wizefics

Fandom Category: Burn Notice
Pairing: Fiona Glenanne/Michael Westen
Fic Title: Adrenaline
Author: ficwize
Link: http://bn-coverstories.livejournal.com/13227.html
Rating/Warning(s): Adult/no standard warnings apply
Genre: PWP

Why This Must Be Read: "Adrenaline's" a short PWP, but the characterization for Michael and Fiona are spot on, and the situation the two find themselves when they decide to make love--in a chaotic environment where explosions are going off at any moment--seems fitting for the two of them.

Veronica Mars, 4 season one recs, Veronica/Logan

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: Girl on the Wing
Author: stainofmylove
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/86170
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Character Study
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This is a sharp and wonderfully written look at the period of time, pre-series, when Veronica and Logan were at each other's throats after Lilly's death. The anger and bitterness is palpable and real, but there's still an underlying spark of too-intense attention and shared history that bleeds through.

Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Duncan Kane, Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: "The Comeback: The Vanity Fair Profile"
Author: yahtzee
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/45339
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Future Fic, Media Study
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I went back and double-checked, but it doesn't look like this story has been recced here yet - "The Comeback: The Vanity Fair Profile" is an eerie, Hollywood-esque take on the aftermath of season one, as seen by a celebrity reporter doing an article on Aaron Echolls. While it's a future fic, the author's note says it was written at the end of season one and "disregards all subsequent canon", so it's safe from future spoilers within the Veronica Mars universe. This is one of my favorite V. Mars fics - insidious, clever, and deceptively dark.
