Why This Must Be Read: In the earlier seasons, the show briefly touched on how weird (but also how unexpectedly fun) it might be to date someone whose personality and interests change in such drastic but quasi-predictable ways as Liv's do. This sweet series of missing moments covers a few less murder-tastic brains she might've sampled over the years, as well as how the people in her life (and a human Major in particular) help her steer around the curves.

Why This Must Be Read: The longer the show's gone on, the harder it is to see the "real" Liv through the many, many characters she takes on—and this fic (though it tends toward gen, it's definitely got its shippy moments) takes a careful, balanced approach to what that means and does to a person, as well as to those around them. Well worth exploring, it turns out.

Why This Must Be Read: Elektra is a difficult character to inhabit, but the author takes on the challenge with grace and not a little darkness in this exploration of Elektra's past, future, and the choices she makes—especially those related to a certain lawyer she's not quite going to quit.
