Why This Must Be Read: I've been reading through all gryfndor_godess's works because she is fantastic but this has to be my fav so far - seriously, you should drop everything and read this fic. Here's the summary: "A Knight of Hell is on the warpath. The Queen of Hell and a hunter seek the First Blade. The year is 3014." I honestly don't want to say too much without giving what happens away, but it's brilliant. This fic is original, unique, and incredibly well done. It's told from the POV of a character that doesn't know any of the history between "Cain" and Bela which allows the author to reveal things in perfectly doled out portions to keep the fic mysterious and intriguing. There's a fantastic emotional undercurrent and all the little details - from "current" references to story parallels to characterization of all the characters involved - come acorss effortless yet totally deliberate. And even when I thought I'd figured things out, some fantastic little twists came along to prove me wrong. This is the type of rare fic that goes in the "To Re-Read" pile. :D

Why This Must Be Read: In which the press is convinced girl!Sam and Steve are dating after they share the story of their meet-cute on national television. This is so sweet and lovely. Sam is so oblivious and Steve is so obviously smitten and their banter is cute and!!! Just. FEELINGS!!! There's also a podfic of this story by knight_tracer.

Why This Must Be Read: 5 times Bucky made Steph come and one time it was mutual. This is short but sweet, with a fair bit of feeeels and angst to go along with the sexy.

Why This Must Be Read: FAKE. DATING. MY WEAKNESS. This is a modern AU wherein Dom tries to get Kel to take a break from studying for the bar by going on vacation with him and his family and pretending to be his girlfriend so that his grandmother won't be disappointed in his bachelor ways. This was so good. The author got Kel and Dom so right and I legitimately giggled like a schoolgirl every time Dom went shirtless and Kel appreciated the view. :P

Why This Must Be Read: Faleron's mother is after him to get married and make babies and Kel offers to pretend that Faleron is courting her to get his mother off his back. Unfortunately, Kel is completely unaware that Faleron has had a crush on her ever since they were pages... It's not overly romantic (more friends with benefits) but I really enjoyed it and it's got some nice humor.
