In here, everything is beautiful...

Days 5-10 of challenge

Day 05: A fic with the best kiss/sex scene

Fandom Category: Burn Notice
Pairing: Sam Axe/Fiona Glenanne
Fic Title: Without a Spark
Author: bluerosefairy
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): M/NC-17 - contains drug use and explicit sexual content.
Genre: PWP
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: My favorite bit of barn-burning, balls-to-the-wall, house afire sex. This is Sam and Fiona at their most amped and it is intense and beautiful.

Day 06: A fic with the most heartbreaking scene

Fandom Category: Burn Notice
Pairing: Sam Axe/Amanda Axe (Sam's ex-wife)
Fic Title: Redemption for a Fool
Author: Caroline Jessamine
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): G - contains some alchol abuse and violence
Genre: Romance, Drama, angst, SOL
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: My feelings about this fic are mixed. Everything about it is perfect..until that magically-achieved late-in-life pregnancy Sam and Amanda go through near the middle of the story rears its ugly head. Yet this fic cannot be ignored because it eloquently and touchingly explores the trauma Sam's abandoning his family put them through, the grief and residual guilt he feels about having been on the teams, and doesn't sugarcoat the conflict between himself and his long-lost son. There's a particularly touching moment when Sam heads to the beach and Amanda and her dog follow him there - it's quiet, beautiful, and heartrending.

Day 07: A fic for a pairing with a lot of baggage

Fandom Category: Venture Brothers
Pairing: Molotov Cocktease/Brock Samson
Fic Title: Red Handed
Author: zenstereo
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): T - contains some violence and sexual content
Genre: Romance, Drama, angst,
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Brock and Molotov have a hell of a history. They met in Paris. He killed her father. She took his eye. They have battled and kissed their way across every single continent. Much of season 4 has jossed this, but I really like the duality of the melancholy between them.

Day 08: A fic for a pairing about a wedding and/or baby

Fandom Category: Evil Dead Trilogy
Pairing: Ash Williams/Sheila
Fic Title: Growing Up Williams
Author: misskittyfantastico
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG/T- violence
Genre: Humor, kidfic, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I adore the Life and Times of Alice C.F. Williams series more than anything (so much that I've actually requested another chapter). Ash and Sheila co-parenting while kicking zombie ass together is love.

Day 09: A fic for your favorite live action TV show pairing

Fandom Category: Burn Notice
Pairing: Michael Westen/Fiona Glenanne
Fic Title: Never Easy
Author: she-with-the-pen
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/T- violence
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP?: Yep

Why This Must Be Read: I've already recced all of my Sam/Fiona fic, so have some Michael/Fiona pre-canon fic, which manages to write a lovely and gritty story about Mike and Fi's past. Sadly it seems to have been left incomplete, but what exists is beautiful.

Day 10: A fic for your favorite Movie pairing

Fandom Category: Rocky Horror Picture Show
Pairing: Brad Majors/Janet Weiss
Fic Title: Ways Love Can Go
Author: tacky_tramp
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/T- sexual content
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP?: Yep

Why This Must Be Read: Since I've already recced every Ash and Sheila fic I know of, I thought I'd rec one of my side fandoms. Most post-RHPS fics tend to be depressing, or pair Janet off with Dr. Frank-N-Furter. This one takes a new point of view and sees Janet and Brad's sexual awakening as something that might enhance their marriage. It manages to create quite a sweet little fic.
