Fandom Category: Alias
Pairing: Sark/Sydney (but the entire cast is there, too)
Fic Title: Complicity
Link: This is her memories, where you can find links to all the chapters
WIP?: Yes, but at a whopping 42 chapters, you won't feel cheated; plus, by the time it stops, you'll have a pretty good idea of where it was going and that everything would be okay for these crazy kids.
Why This Must Be Read: Set in a season 3 AU, this fic does the best job I've ever seen of blending gripping drama with non-cracky, realistic hilarity. The Sydney (3rd person) POV voice is spot-on and that of a real woman. The snarky banter between Sark and Sydney is a dream. She doesn't woobify Sark's character; he's still an insufferably smug bastard, but oh-so appealing, and you get why Sydney is simultaneously disgusted by and attracted to him. (She also includes my personal idea that underneath the smooth spy exterior, he's just a little bit socially awkward). The missions they go on are really well-done, the sexytimes are very sexy, and the romantic angst is delicious. It's loooooong, but you'll be unable to stop reading, so make sure you have at least a free hour. If you liked Alias, I promise this will make your week. :-)
