Title: Crescendo
Author: SiennaSky
Link: AO3
Rating/Warning(s): Mature. None.
Word Count/WIP?: 15,329 words. Complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: profshallowness

Why This Must Be Read: I really appreciated how this story developed, with unexpected twists as Beca and Jesse grow up alone and together. I haven't seen a fic that delves into how Beca's lack of stability growing up had affected her so much. But at the same time, there are knowing, Hollywood moments to enjoy.

Fandom: Push
Pairing: Cassie Holmes/Nick Gant
Title: roll the dice
Author: vinylroad

Rating/Warning(s): Teen. Canon-typical violence.

Why This Must Be Read: This story does a great job on Cassie and her developing partnership with Nick over the years and through three separations.

Rating/Warning(s): Teen. None.
Word Count/WIP?: 8,182. No, but there is a shorter second part.
Recced on LiveJournal By: profshallowness
Why This Must Be Read: To enjoy watching Snow both settle and grow into her role and the slow-burn development of the love story.

Fandom: Snow White and the Huntsman/The Huntsman: Winter’s War
Pairing:Snow White/The Huntsman
Title: From Darkness Into Light
Author: Jedi Buttercup
Link: AO3
Rating/Warning(s): Teen. None.
Word Count/WIP?: 4,200 words. Complete.
Recced on LiveJournal By: profshallowness

Why This Must Be Read: If, like me, you came out of Snow White and the Huntsman shipping Snow/Eric (and, let’s be honest, going to see Winter’s War thinking it was a prequel), this is the fix-it fic you crave. I love the treatment of Eric and Snow's feelings and the development of the magic here.

Fandom: True Grit (2010)
Pairing: Mattie Ross/LaBoeuf
Title: The Good Old Way
Author: ishie
Link: AO3
Rating/Warning(s): The writer doesn’t give one, so say teen. No warnings.
Word Count/WIP?: 4,040. Complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: profshallowness

Why This Must Be Read: Mattie may have misinformed us about one thing in her account of the hunt for Tom Chaney...

It’s so great to spend more time with Mattie of the distinctive voice, and the writer has fun with how the plain-speaker is a transparently unreliable narrator.

Fandom: While You Were Sleeping
Pairing: Lucy Moderatz/Jack Callaghan
Title: Bonne Nouvelle
Author: in48frames
Link: AO3
Rating/Warning(s): General Audience. None.
Word Count/WIP?: 1,076 words. Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: It’s a charming, grounded story about Lucy and Jack in Paris.
