Days 21-31, multiple pairings, eleven recs

* Day 21 - A rare pairing fic.
Fandom Category: Torchwood
Pairing: Toshiko Sato/Ianto Jones
Fic Title: Impolitic
Author: kayliemalinza
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; dubcon (sex pollen trope)
Genre: smut
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This is a smutty classic in Torchwood fandom. Tosh and Ianto are dosed with sex pollen. The only thing to do is let them have at it.

* Day 22 - A canon pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: River Song/Eleventh Doctor
Fic Title: Postcards from Atlantis
Author: marginaliana
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: action/adventure, fluff
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: The Doctor and River have adventures and send letters to Amy and Rory. It's a fun read; it's like the postcards are coming to life before your eyes.

* Day 23 - A pairing where one character is paired in multiple ships.

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Sarah Jane Smith/Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith/OMC
Fic Title: Before I Let You Go
Author: sleepismyfriend
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): All Audiences
Genre: angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: On the day before she's supposed to get married in 1985, the Doctor comes back to visit Sarah Jane. This visit changes the whole wedding. There's really tense and great moments in this fic.

* Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Once Upon a Time/Leverage
Pairing: Emma Swan/Eliot Spencer
Fic Title: Gaze In Your Mirror (and see yourself)
Author: mizzy2k
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Crossover, Action/Adventure
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Eliot meets up with a love he left behind to help her with a problem. Good characterization and transitions from the Leverage universe to the OUAT universe.

* Day 25 - A fic where a canon character is paired with an original character.

Fandom Category: Boardwalk Empire
Pairing: OFC/Richard Harrow
Fic Title: The Human Seasons series
Author: lefthandedwife/HellToupe
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences-Mature; some parts of the series have major character death in them
Genre: Alternate Universe, Angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I'm not usually a fan of works where the OC in a fic falls in love with a main, but this is a well written fic about how Harrow finds what he's always wanted in life--a love life and a family--after meeting up with Jimmy Darmondy in canon. This is well written, and if you're sad about Harrow's current fate in the series, this may be worth your while.

* Day 26 - A future fic.

Fandom Category: Burn Notice
Pairing: Fiona Glenanne/Michael Westen
Fic Title: The Waiting Game
Author: rise_your_dead/Missy
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: Fluff, Future Fic
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Fiona and Michael have their first child. Fiona and Michael being Fiona and Michael, it's chaotic.

* Day 27 - A pre-series fic.

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Sophie Deveraux/Nathan Ford
Fic Title: This is Not a Con
Author: midnightair
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Genre: Fluff
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Nate (working with his insurance company pre-show) almost captures Sophie at a Scottish castle. But first, he becomes smitten with her.  Very clever fic.

* Day 28 - A kink fic.

Fandom Category: Doctor Who
Pairing: Amy Pond/Rory Williams
Fic Title: And I Like What I See
Author: fizzyblogic (phizzle)
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit; cunnilingus and vaginal sex
Genre: Smut
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: A take on the first time Amy and Rory have sex. Written for Kink Bingo, it demonstrates the striptease kink well.

* Day 29 - A fic that best deals with that character you loved who was unfairly fridged/killed in canon.

Fandom Category: Torchwood
Pairing: Toshiko Sato/Owen Harper
Fic Title: classical mechanics (or: it's the fall that's gonna kill you)
Author: hyacinthian
Link: part 1; part 2
Rating/Warning(s): R; major canonical character death and sexual content
Genre: Alternate Universe, Angst, Fix-It
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Although the end of this story is bittersweet, it does give a happy ending to Tosh and Owen's tragic end at the end of the original Torchwood run. Also, this story spans Tosh's relationships in the series (told through her POV), so you won't be lost reading the story. (There is a background canonical femslash pairing, but it's not the focal point of the story.)

* Day 30 - A fic you've read and reread a dozen times.

Fandom Category: Luther
Pairing: Alice Morgan/John Luther
Fic Title: like a sin
Author: listedheart
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Mature; knifeplay
Genre: Smut
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Knifeplay is one of my favorite kinks. Knifeplay would be something Alice would do if Alice and John took their relationship further--she's fascinated with blades of all sorts. The teasing, the knifeplay--everything about this is so sexy and so them.

* Day 31 - BONUS - Wildcard/Catch up on a missed day

Fandom Category: Suits
Pairing: Jessica Pearson/Harvey Spencer
Fic Title: Run Home Slow
Author: o_contrary
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; BDSM, pegging
Genre: Smut
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the first Suits fics I ever read in the fandom. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it posted somewhere on a Suits comm I've since forgotten.  Harvey/Jessica isn't a popular pairing in the fandom. For a first time het fic, I think it's done well.
