Why This Must Be Read: Because the story gives us an introduction to all the characters and makes us root for them or hate them. It reads like a fairy tale and has aspects from Arthurian legends and Norse mythology. Summary --> AU story. Following an interesting tale of Morgana's dealings with Odin's sons (Tyr and Baldr are included since they are brothers to Thor in the mythology). A broken promise is the catalyst for a sudden journey. The journey is filled with obstacles and oddities. Loki and Morgana cross paths like ships in the night.

Special Rec:30 of 30 (whew!)

Why This Must Be Read:The Never a Good Day series is an incredible read for T:SCC fans, but it's also so well written you could read it with only a minimal knowledge of the show. And you should. Why?
Well, because it's an epic resolution to a complicated show. The series diverges from canon a few episodes before the end and takes the characters on an amazing series of adventures that leads to a satisfying conclusion for everyone (well, not the bad guys). These stories are fully of snappy plotting, snarky humour, and a wonderfully drawn Sarah/Derek relationship. Strongest of recs.
