RPF: Stargate: Atlantis, 5 recs, Torri Higginson/Joe Flanigan

Fandom: RPF: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: Torri Higginson/Joe Flanigan
Fic Title: In Transit
Author: phrenitis
Link: http://phrenitis.livejournal.com/167047.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG, RPF, Adultery
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 71/100

Why This Must Be Read: Every RPF story phrenitis writes is pure gold and this one is no exception. In it, Joe accompanies Torri on her road-trip back to LA after her departure from the show, and gradually comes to realise... well. Lovely, lovely writing and characterisations make this one of my favourite all-time Torri/Joe fics.

Fic Title: Self-reflection's For Pussies and David Hewlett
Author: Kassie

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, RPF, Adultery
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 72/100

Why This Must Be Read: One of the first Torri/Joe fics to surface and, arguably, one of the best. This is an intense look at Joe and his relationships, the prose filled with dozens upon dozens of sharp little commentaries and self-reflections that make for a killer characterisation. A definite must-read.

Fic Title: The Great Canadian Caper

Rating/Warning(s): PG, RPF, Adultery
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 73/100

Why This Must Be Read: There's not a lot of truly "happy" Torri/Joe fics (for obvious reasons, heh) but this comes pretty close. Sure, Joe's still having a bit of a panic attack, trying to figure out what he should -- and can -- do with his co-star, but it's also Joe and Torri and Rachel and Jason on a snow-vacation road-trip with gallons of alcohol. There's banter and drinking games and flirting and a sweet balance of happy-fun-times against UST-angst-times. This story always leaves me smiling.

Fic Title: cracks in this fine social scene
Author: sugargroupie

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, RPF, Adultery
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 74/100

Why This Must Be Read: This has everything a good RPF fic needs: romance, drama, angst, adultery, airport lounges, text messaging, missed opportunities, grabbed opportunities, kissing, realisations... I love that even though Joe and Torri are both so confused and unsure in this, at the heart of it all they're both thinking the same thing. Just lovely.

Fic Title: This Life
Author: kateanderson
Link: http://kateanderson.livejournal.com/540127.html
Rating/Warning(s): R, RPF, Adultery
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 75/100

Why This Must Be Read: Set after Torri's exit from the show, this is a bittersweet look at how Joe (and Torri) might have handled (or not handled) her leaving. This depiction of their relationship is complicated and not entirely happy or healthy, but it is intriguing.
