Gone With the Wind, 5 recs, Scarlett O'Hara/Rhett Butler

Fandom: Gone With the Wind
Pairing: Scarlett O'Hara/Rhett Butler
Fic Title: Virgil in Hell
Author: Ellie
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2916262/1/Virgil_in_Hell
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 81/100

Why This Must Be Read: Starting with their flee from Atlanta, ellie gives us a closer look at Rhett's thoughts and feelings about Scarlett, and takes that further by spinning a delightful 'what if' during their reunion in the jail cell. A wonderful look into Rhett's mind and a more happily-ever-after ending than the book/movie gave. Just lovely.

Fic Title: Six Years Later
Author: Jengrrrl
Link: http://vintagefic.livejournal.com/14789.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG13
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 82/100

Why This Must Be Read: This story is exactly what it's titled -- six years after the end of Gone With the Wind, Scarlett tracks down Rhett. This isn't a happily ever after, per se, but it is a realistic look at the characters and how they might reconnect. Wonderfully written.

Fic Title: Foreboding

Rating/Warning(s): NC17
Genre: Sex
WIP? No
Special Rec: 83/100

Why This Must Be Read: Two of the great things about Rhett and Scarlett's relationship was their undeniable attraction to each other and their ability to banter back and forth. This ficlet gives a lovely, sexy look into one of their nights together with great characterisation and insights.

Fic Title: The Next Morning
Author: gypsymuse

Rating/Warning(s): PG13
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 84/100

Why This Must Be Read: I'm a sucker for stories that "fix" Rhett and Scarlett's relationship so there's nothing better than a story that takes the morning after that night (the one with the drunken, angry sex) and has Rhett and Scarlett actually talk to each other in a way that doesn't result in him leaving the country with Bonnie. Lovely and hopeful and sensual, with a lovely period touch to the dialogue, this story delivers just the right amount of happily-ever-after.

Fic Title: Five Tomorrows for Scarlett O'Hara
Author: lydia the eleventh
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3947166/1/Five_Tomorrows_for_Scarlett_OHara
Rating/Warning(s): PG13, suicide
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 85/100

Why This Must Be Read: This is definitely not a love story. Here, Lydia spins out five possible futures for Scarlett after Rhett leaves her. Not all of them are happy or hopeful, but they are very true to Scarlett's character and the thread of her love for Rhett permeates every one. The last is my favourite, obviously, but all of these are intriguing 'what if's.
