Why This Must Be Read: Author's Summary: Claire Temple is her own kind of hero: she saves lives and helps people in broad daylight, in a costume of surgical masks and scrubs. I love Claire Temple. She was a gift to all three shows she appeared in and in this story she gets to be front and center. The way the author writes Claire's pov throughout this story is perfect. I love how she interacts with the each character and how much we learn about her through each interaction. The long-distance phone calls between her and Luke are so lovely and pitch perfect. This story is exactly what I wanted after the last episode.

Star Trek, 2 recs, Amanda/Sarek

Honestly, my only real familiarity with Star Trek is through the reboot movies—which means I fell in love with Amanda Grayson purely through fics like these. Lucky thing I did, because she's fantastic!

Fandom: Star Trek
Pairing: Amanda Grayson/Sarek
Title: A Profound Coming Loose

Why This Must Be Read: A lovely first-time fic. As the title says, this fic is indeed profound in its navigation of interspecies intimacy—sex, but not only sex—and its handling of two characters who very much care for and want to understand one another.

Why This Must Be Read: Written well before the 2009 reboot but perfectly in line with it, this fic grapples with Amanda's adjustment to Vulcan's strict culture and her now-prominent role among an alien people. Her refusal to compromise herself balances with her love for her new husband and his planet, and her gradual understanding of the nature of change is excellently rendered.

Weird and Interesting by kethni (Teen and Up Audiences)

Special Rec: 3/20

Why This Must Be Read: This is the first story I remember reading for this pairing. When I found it I was so elated that someone else was getting more out of the sparse minutes of screentime Sue and Kent were sharing in S3 and decided to fic one of the best stories for the couple ever written. I love what kethni does with both individuals. The backstory kethni gives Kent satisfies the angst whore in me. It’s probably why I am so addicted to the author’s VEEP stories. There’s fluffy stuff as well and it makes watching these two fall for each (with the backdrop of S3) delightful.

Mods can I get a Sue Wilson/Kent Davison tag?

Star Wars, 9 recs, Jyn Erso/Cassian Andor

I've been to watch the film twice in the past two weeks, and have basically spent all my free time in between going through fics for Cassian/Jyn (or rebelcaptain) like air. And now I will share to drag everyone down with me. Some of my favourites so far.

There's a ton more fic I haven't read yet - this is an active, talented fandom, with long fics I haven't had time to read, and this only covers what I've seen on AO3.
