Why This Must Be Read: Like I think a lot of Whovians, I didn’t have a ton of emotion invested in this pairing—until I read this fic, at which point I’m so happy to have read a fic that’s just nice as well as happy, and to see a characterization of Danny that’s neither Mickey 2.0 nor Rory 2.0.

Why This Must Be Read: This series of stories is so incredibly charming. Chash as a writer basically uses Clarke and Bellamy to troll the ever loving shit out of each other until they make out (or during the make out), and this series is pretty much the best example of that. My favorite is the last in the series (Oh, That'd Be Reason Enough For Me), but mostly because Clarke uses her powers for evil and it's basically the best thing ever. I've desperately needed some light, fun, reading and this absolutely hits the spot in the best of ways. Actually, here's an excerpt from the last story, and if you can't get on board with this, this series is not for you:

"There is something seriously wrong with you," says Bellamy, with clear admiration in his voice.

"I love you too. Can you spit in his drink?"

"Way ahead of you, Princess."
