Five Recs, Two Fandoms

Fandom: The X Files
Pairing: Dana Scully/Fox Mulder
Title: Home, Home
Author: onpaperfirst
Link: http://onpaperfirst.livejournal.com/2664.html
Rating/Warning(s): Teen, I believe. No Major Warnings
Word Count/WIP?: 4,695
Recced on Tumblr By: @dontbelievethetrolls

Why This Must Be Read: This fic takes a serious look at the question of how you build a home when you’ve been without for so long, the concept might be a little foreign. It is a beautiful, in character, sweet, sometimes heartbreaking, exploration of what life must have been for Scully and Mulder in the years after leaving the FBI.  Bonus: any fic with the line “A moose wouldn’t fit in the actual kitchen sink” needs to be read. You know I’m right.

Fandom: The X Files
Pairing: Dana Scully/Fox Mulder
Title: TouristsAuthor: Discordia

Rating/Warning(s): R. No Major Warnings
Word Count/WIP?: 5,827
Recced on Tumblr By: @dontbelievethetrolls

Why This Must Be Read: “Mulder and Scully come back, now  as a couple, to revisit their past” seems like the plot of a bottle episode of The X Files revival. But in a twist of brilliance, this fic has them literally, physically, picking up and going through all the places they left behind when they quit the FBI in an odd sort of holiday/road trip, and reading it feels a little like being along for the ride. It’s a little rambly -in a good way, they way road trips can be- but the character interactions are always, always on point.

Fandom: Battlestar Galactica 2003
Pairing: Laura Roslin/William Adama
Title: Didn’t, Shouldn’t, Don’t
Author: datsue

Rating/Warning(s): T

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of my favourite BSG fics. It’s a kind of meditation, through Kara’s eyes on different kinds of love and different kinds of family, as she reflects on the Admiral’s decision to find Laura -and the developments that followed.  I don’t think I need to say that much more. It’s a great third person look at the Roslin/Adama dynamic from someone very much in the midst of it.

Fandom: Battlestar Galactica 2003
Pairing: Laura Roslin/William Adama
Title: If Not, Winter

Rating/Warning(s): M
Word Count/WIP?: 53,137
Recced on Tumblr By: @dontbelievethetrolls

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is a bit of an undertaking, but in the best possible way!It is one of those amazing pieces of fic where no, things don’t follow canon, but it doesn’t matter because the AU is so well constructed, it’s basically a full-fledged adaptation of the source material (a happier, less traumatic adaptation of the source material). Anyway, this fic has everything: female alliance/friendship, families of choice, families of blood and of course, lots of the Roslin and Adama being not-really-but-actually-yeah-totally married, like they were from half-way season one.  Fic takes it a lot further than the show, but that’s the beauty of it.

Fandom: Battlestar Galactica 2003
Pairing: Laura Roslin/William Adama
Title: Through the Startled Sky

Rating/Warning(s): T+
Word Count/WIP?: 15,000

Why This Must Be Read: The main reason I’m recommending this one (other than it is very, very good and you should definitely read it), is that you wouldn’t know about it from reading ‘If Not, Winter’ at ff.net. It’s a companion piece to that one, told from the Admiral’s pov, and it does a good job of exploring the empty spaces you sometimes get in a single pov story.  It’s a solid fic on it’s own, so even if you don’t read the other one, you can absolutely read this one.

From Dusk Till Dawn, 5 recs, Kate Fuller/Seth Gecko

Hello everyone~ It is I, your special reccer for the month! And in honor of the monthly challenge, I have some smutty smutty recs for you. And in keeping with a common theme for many of my recs for this month, I'm not even in this fandom!! As in I have legitimately never seen a single second of this show. Someone reblogged a Kate/Seth gifset on my dash, I thought, "THAT LOOKS LIKE MY JAM," and immediately started looking up fic for them, because that is a thing I do. And you all get to reap the benefits of my fannish magpie habits! *jazz hands* :D

Fandom: From Dusk Till Dawn
Pairing: Kate Fuller/Seth Gecko
Title: Good For You
Author: quiet_rebel
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/4396652?view_full_work=true
Rating/Warning(s): E, Warnings that'll apply for basically every rec: the potentially squicky thing about this pairing is the age difference. Kate is 17 going on 18 in the show and Seth is quite a bit older. Most fanfic doesn't have anything occurring with them until Kate is past 18.

Special Rec: 1 of ?

Why This Must Be Read: Because this is a Magic Mike! crossover/AU. Seth is a male stripper who's been paid by Kate's friends to give her the lapdance of HER LIFE after she's been dumped by her boyfriend. Are you sold yet??? If you enjoyed the amazing and cheesy but sincere REVELATION that was Magic Mike XXL, you will definitely enjoy this. It's a nice lighthearted break from the ANGST AND GORE that is the show (at least from what I can glean from context having never seen it) and I really enjoyed Kate and Seth's connection. And oh yes, the sexy times are sexy.

Special Rec: 2 of ?

Why This Must Be Read: My quest to rec everything seren_ccd has ever written continues! This is a lovely long read which spans Kate and Seth's time on the road as a Mexican-vampire hunting Bonnie and Clyde and over the course of 3 years until Kate is 21. Not only is the characterization on-point, but the story captures everything about their dynamic that pushed my shipping button hard: their unflinching loyalty, the fact that they're unquestionably equals despite the age difference, Seth's protectiveness, Kate's undeniable badassness, and, oh yeah, THE SEXUAL TENSION GOOD LORD. And when that sexual tension is finally resolved....WELL.

Here, have an excerpt:
