Why This Must Be Read: Ooftah. The last couple years have been hard out here for a Belle/Rumpelstiltskin fan. The show's made a lot of odd choices and (unsurprisingly) not really followed up on a lot of themes and elements they introduced. This story does a lot of heavy lifting and solid work to mitigate that flakiness and lack of consistency. Remember doesn't shy away from canon and what's been established on the show, but it fills in the connective tissue that should be addressed. This is the "show, don't tell" narrative that I've been desperately craving. Let's put it this way, the secondary pairing in this is very much not my cup of tea, but the story doesn't ignore my concerns regarding that couple; it addresses all of them head-on. This is a fantastic fix-it story, and one that I heartily recommend.
[Murdoch Mysteries] William/Julia - In t

Confessions by Fallenbelle2 (PG)

Fandom: Murdoch Mysteries
Pairing: Julia Ogden/William Murdoch
Title: Confessions
Author: Fallenbelle2

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Word Count/WIP?: 2,755 / Complete
Recced By: vickysg1

Why This Must Be Read: This is set after Julia came back to Toronto in season 6 and addresses William's reasons for not stopping the wedding and not finding someone else to love. This is a really beautiful fic and it stays true to who William and Julia are. They're in-character, and it feels like a scene that has been cut from an episode.
The Librarians

Why This Must Be Read: In honor of the Librarians being renewed for a second season(Yay!) I thought I might as well rec my most recent story. It takes place after the episode And Santa's Midnight Run. Basically, all magic has a price and Ezekiel Jones finds this out the hard way. Thankfully Cassandra knows what to do.

Fandom:Doctor Who/Psych
Pairing:Martha Jones/Burton "Gus" Guster
Title: Pluto, Potter, and a Pub
Author: honor_reid
Rating/Warning(s): PG/super fluffy
Word Count/WIP?: 2698/no

Why This Must Be Read: I love crossovers. So when I noticed that both Martha and Gus like Harry Potter, this idea popped in my head. Just a fortuitous meeting between two people.
