Suits, 5 Recs for Donna Paulsen/Harvey Specter

Fandom Category: Suits
Pairing: Donna/Harvey
Fic Title: Personal Pitbull
Author: wicked42
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8154677/1/Personal_Pitbull
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: hurt/comfort/fluff (seriously)
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is a great take on a common Donna/Harvey trope - it takes a disaster for him to truly clue in but once he does... In a series of brief, intense scenes, wicked42 draws you into Harvey's whirlwind, gives you brilliant moments of the rest of the PH team, and then makes you smile with awww.


Fandom Category: Suits
Pairing: Donna/Harvey
Fic Title: I'm with You
Author: she.a.punk
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7346901/1/
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Angst/Friendship (shippy for shippers)
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Partly because it's one of the earliest fics written for these two, partly because it addresses the pain and anger of 1x11 "Rules of the Game" really well, and mostly because this is an excellent character study of the two of them, as individuals and as a unit. Technically gen, but if you're a shipper it's all there for you.

Pairing: Donna/Harvey
Fic Title: The Tears of Minerva
Author: Weeblswobl
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/252216
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Hurt/comfort
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Like the last one, this is a fix-it for a rough episode, in this case 1x12. Donna and Harvey's trust had been seriously damaged, and this fic addresses that. Again, it's not strictly a romance fic, but Weeblswobl shows the strength of their connection and how much they value and need each other in such a way that it's easy to feel the ship.

Fandom Category: Suits
Pairing: Donna/Harvey
Fic Title: How to See Me
Author: zinfic/Zinnith
Link: http://zinfic.livejournal.com/154590.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: smut/humour
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This pairing is all about the wit - zingers, one-liners, puns, can openers - and this fic takes it to a new level. Donna and Harvey end up having dinner together, have a bad pick-up line contest, and wind up in flagrante. It's funny, it's hot, and it's got a great feel for their effortless connection. What's not to love?

Fandom Category: Suits
Pairing: Donna/Harvey
Fic Title: When the Levee Breaks
Author: harrietspecter
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/465969
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 (vague sexytimes)
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: The story picks up with Donna being fired in 2x5 "Break Point" and offers a solution. It offers creative takes on their history together and as individuals, and it addresses how much Donna has been hurt this season. The story could have benefited from another beta-pass, but the story is good and the characterization of Donna is excellent. Worth the read.


(The recs under the cut include spoilers through 2x5)

mods, could we have a suits tag and a donna paulsen/harvey specter tag? thank you!
