Why This Must Be Read: I have enjoyed tumblr-watching the Missandei/Grey Worm romance and think it's SUPER CUTE. This is a great modern AU that doesn't avoid the whole "castration" issue; in this story Grey loses his junk when he's injured in Afghanistan and he and Missandei have to figure out what their future is going to look like when he comes back from overseas. This is a beautiful story.

Fandom: Criminal Minds
Pairing: Penelope Garcia/Derek Morgan

Why This Must Be Read: Every once in a while, I check back into the Criminal Minds fandom to see if Morgan and Garcia are married yet, AND THEY STILL AREN'T, WHY????? Sigh, this is why we have fanfiction. This fic is an AU where Garcia owns a cafe and bakery that the BAU members like to frequent. One day Derek Morgan comes in and he and Penelope immediately strike up a flirtation. I love how even though she isn't a member of their team, Garcia still manages to be their heart and supports them the best way she can with baked goods and kind words. And at least in this story, Derek sees sense and decides to go for it with Garcia, unlike the canon *pointed glare*

Why This Must Be Read: 5 impromptu duets between Kelly and Andy. This story is so so adorable! I love the way it gradually becomes clear that the two of them are perfect for each other. Andy never thinks that the things Kelly likes are shallow or stupid and their particular flavors of crazy are completely compatible. The character voices are pitch-perfect.

Fandom: iZombie
Pairing: Liv Moore/Ravi Chakrabarti

Why This Must Be Read: Another show I enjoy tumblr-watching. These two are ADORABLE and I would like them to put their mouths on each other soon please and thank you. Anyway! This story is a series of scenes wherein their friends/family walk in on the two of them in situations that are easily misinterpreted as romantic, which ultimately leads them all to think that Ravi and Liv have been a couple longer than they actually are. This was ADORABLE.

Fandom: Sense8
Pairing: Sun Bak/Capheus

Why This Must Be Read: Oh gosh...this pairing is my stealth OTP and I do not have words to describe how much I adore this story. Capheus asks Sun for fighting lessons. And the thing is, when you're hopping in and out of each other's bodies and sharing sensations, sometimes things get a little...heated. I love the gradual burn of their attraction, the realization of their feelings, the way the rest of their Cluster tries to check in on them. This is a beautifully written story, filled with so much yearning and tenderness and sensuality. There's also a multivoice podfic of this story here.

Why This Must Be Read: I've always loved this pairing and thought Sydney deserved a sweet, adoring guy who listens to her and makes her laugh, which is exactly who Weiss is. Eric is convinced that Sydney will never see him as more than a friend, but Syd surprises him. This was adorable and I love that things don't go smoothly, but they're still able to laugh at themselves and it doesn't ruin the mood at all.

Mods, I need pairing tags for Missandei/Grey Worm, Kelly Kapoor/Andy Bernard, and Sun Bak/Capheus.

MCU & Daredevil, 5 recs, various Darcy pairings

Why This Must Be Read: An AU in which Darcy hires Steve to help her renovate her home. Imagining Steve as a handyman is...yea, that's a good look in my head. I enjoyed the building attraction and the way that Darcy finally decides to go fuck it, and goes for what she wants.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a really cool soulmate AU wherein you have a psychic bond with your soulmate. So Darcy and Sam develop this psychic bond which allows them to comfort each other mentally and feel when their soulmate is experiencing strong emotions--but they've still never met.

Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Bucky Barnes

Why This Must Be Read: I love this story SO MUCH. In which Bucky (post CA2) saves Darcy from a mugger and she decides to hire him as her intern now that intern Ian is no longer in the picture. This is SCREAMINGLY funny and I love how much Bucky adores Darcy and enjoys his work as Darcy's intern. Thre is also an incredibly delightful podfic by litra. I highly recommend both the story and the podfic.

Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Matt Murdock
Title: do it all again (think you're my best friend)
Author: shuofthewind
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/5777647
Rating/Warning(s): Not rated, Author warns for mental illness (depression) and discussion of it; emotional manipulating/abuse, some gaslighting, alcoholism, slurs of LGTB+ identities (especially lesbianism and asexuality). Darcy has a dysfunctional relationship with her mother and family to put it mildly

Special Rec: 166 of ?

Why This Must Be Read: A no powers AU. Darcy needs a fake boyfriend to take to her cousin's wedding, and Matt offers to play the role. The problem is...Darcy has kind of had a crush on him forever? This is a long, plotty read and I really like how the author allows the characters to be flawed and complicated. I also enjoyed the way the romance builds and how Matt is such a fucking champ with dealing with Darcy's family.

Mods, can I have a tag for Darcy Lewis/Matt Murdock?
