Kiss

"Four Hundred Years" by thegranddewru (R)

Fandom: Pirates of the Caribbean
Pairing: Elizabeth Swann/William Turner
Title: Four Hundred Years
Author: thegranddewru
Link: http://thegranddewru.livejournal.com/100622.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Word Count/WIP?: 2,863 (complete)
Recced on LiveJournal By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: As the author says, "This fic takes that whole 'forever' thing very seriously" post-At World's End, as it follows Will in his search to reconnect with Elizabeth on the one day he gets on land. And I take this fic very seriously, because it's quite honestly haunted me for years, such that I've gone back to reread it over and over. It's that good.

Georgette Heyer books, 12 recs, various pairings

So...I said a while ago that I would do a Georgette Heyer manifesto. >.> But I mean, you could consider a lot of the posts I've made this month mini manifestos?? Right? Yes? So Georgette Heyer mini manifesto, let's go!! Georgette Heyer essentially invented the Regency romance genre (see her wiki). Some of her books are straight romances, others are set in the Regency era but are detective/mystery novels as well as romances. All of them are straight up delightful. Heyer was meticulous in her research and her books are incredibly detailed and as historically accurate as possible. She had a healthy sense of the ridiculous and if you enjoy whimsy, comedy, witty repartee, and wacky hijinks/shenanigans, Georgette Heyer is the author for you.
