The Mentalist, Five Recs, Jane/Lisbon


Fandom Category: The Mentalist
Pairing: Teresa Lisbon/Patrick Jane
Fic Title: Till the red morning light
Author: Afterglow04
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Friendship/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Jane calls Lisbon his knight in shining armor, and she calls him her damsel in distress. Just in case that isn't enough reason, this is just a lovely documentation of four moments of the course of a year when Jane and Lisbon's relationship could change. It's refreshing to find a new author (or, relatively new at this point) in this fandom who takes obvious care in terms of characterization.

Fic Title: Scarlet Woman
Author: Cathartes
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Friendship, Case (sort of)
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Jane and Lisbon go undercover as a married couple in need of counseling. But it's not what you think! In the course of trying to get a read on the marriage counselor, their own personal issues keep getting in the way. This story is more about intimacy and friendship, and not really romance at all. Pitch perfect dialogue and snarky, sarcastic Lisbon, whose memory palace is the CBI data annex. It really reads to me like it could have been an episode. I don't want to call it "fun" because it does verge on bittersweet and/or honest at moments, but it is a genuinely enjoyable read.

Fic Title: Keeper of Secrets
Author: Arcadya

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, some violence
Genre: Romance, case
WIP?:

Why This Must Be Read: Good case fic in this fandom is rare. Really, really rare. (This is a frequent complaint of mine, actually.) Anyway! This fic is a more traditional undercover case story, although it's not Jane and Lisbon going undercover together but Lisbon going undercover with another man, one she used to know. Jane, naturally, does not like this and has to get involved. I haven't read it in a while and it was written even before season 2, so it's a little bit dated. But if you're looking for a long case-based fic that isn't really related to Red John and does a good job with the case aspect, I would definitely recommend giving this a try.

Fic Title: Something in Between
Author: yaba

Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Admittedly, I'm a little bit biased. This was written as a gift for me, so it has a lot of things that I really like. A slightly different take on the morning after, one that hits on a few of Lisbon's own relationship issues and not just Jane's. The beginning of an established relationship between Jane and Lisbon, following the events of 2x15.

Fic Title: I think is not I know
Author: not_as_we

Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Angst, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A few minor formatting issues, but otherwise a gorgeous, raw story that has almost a lyrical feel to it.



This was a special request and I wanted to do more (although I do feel bad that I seem to be the only person reccing for this ship), but real life has been getting in my way. Anyway, like the last time I tried to include a few different kinds of stories so hopefully there will be something on here for anyone who has been looking. :)
