The Pretender, 5 recs, Miss Parker/Jarod

Fandom: The Pretender
Pairing: Miss Parker/Jarod
Fic Title: False Steps
Author: Loch Ness
Link: Part I, Part II, Part III
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Drama, Action, Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 51/100

Why This Must Be Read: Epically long and equally brilliant, False Steps is approximately 80,000 words of drama, action and romance. (Think of it as another movie we never got to see!) Set mid-season two, the story avoids some of the more crazy storylines and characterisations that came later in the show, and highlights everything that was so awesome in the early days: Jarod being perfectly Jarod, Parker being perfectly Parker, and the two of them together making a perfectly wonderful duo.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 52/100

Why This Must Be Read: One of my favourite Jarod/Parker stories, and all the more wonderful for its briefness. This story is all about the little details; in it, every word is chosen with care. I would have dearly loved to have seen this play out on screen.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 53/100

Why This Must Be Read: I love this characterisation of Parker (and Jarod), how dysfunctional and perfect they both are in equal measure, and the way they have developed a partnership that Parker would rather eat razor blades than admit to. The language and insights in this story are absolutely beautiful.

Rating/Warning(s): adult
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 54/100

Why This Must Be Read: The Loneliest Valentine is a closer look into Jarod's head as to what he might have been thinking when he wrote Miss Parker that romance novel, and is a fitting and excellent match to what may be my favourite episode, Gigolo Jarod.

Author: Pouncer

Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 55/100

Why This Must Be Read: Snappy one-liner's from Miss Parker, a hot and heated makeout session, and a sweet and touching request from Jarod... all of which make three very good reasons why you should read this story as soon as possible.
