a girl who knew how to be happy even when sad

Primeval, 2 Recs, Nick/Jenny

Fandom Category: Primeval
Pairing: Nick/Jenny, with a bit of past Nick/Claudia
Fic Title: The Double Life
Author: nikkimurray
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6703680/1/The_Double_Life
Rating/Warning(s): Teen; light sexual content, cheating in a relationship
Genre: Drama/Angst/Romance
WIP?: Yes, however the author is continually updating and the story is starting to wind down.

Why This Must Be Read: It's not often these days you find an old-school Nick/Jenny fic, and so this was a pleasant surprise when it appeared on the Primeval homepage. But, I was sucked in by the realistic storytelling, fantastic characterization, and the author's firm grasp on what she's doing and where she's taking everyone. All the characters feel as though they are exactly where they were back in Series 2, like all of this could have happened while we weren't watching. I usually don't read Nick/Jenny or Nick/Claudia, despite the fact that I ship them both, but this was a wonderful exception.

Fandom Category: Primeval
Pairing: Nick/Jenny, past Nick/Claudia
Fic Title: Thanks For The Memories
Author: nikkimurray
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6358541/1/Thanks_for_the_Memories
Rating/Warning(s): Teen; suggestive content, violence
Genre: Drama/Action/Adventure/Future!Fic/AU/Kid!fic
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: In this fandom, it seems like future!fics are done to death (at least on the FF.net side of things), so I almost didn't give this old(ish) gem a shot. But the author weaves an interesting tale and doesn't just give Nick and Jenny a kid with a happy nice stereotypical marriage. In fact, they're not even together anymore. Until, that is, the anomalies escalate and a mysterious group of strangers come through from another time. And things just get more and more complicated from there on. As always with nikkimurray, the characters are spot-on and it feels like it could actually be a part of the show. A bit of advice, however. If you're going to read it, clear out some time to go through it in one go; because once the action starts, you won't want to put it down.
