Days 22-31: Multiple fandom/pairing, 12 recs

Stuck in Florida because of Hurricane Sandy, so I might as well take this time to finish up the 30 day meme.

Day 22 - A canon pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Captain America
Pairing: Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: and don't you dare be late
Author: irnan
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: Time Travel!AU, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Peggy and Steve's doomed romance in the movies just breaks my heart, so I love seeing them get a second chance in fic. This story features what might be my favorite Peggy/Steve reunion ever, ever, EVER. Seriously, ALL THE TEARS. And it's only one part of a series called interesting landings so you can get more of Peggy and Steve's story, if you so please.

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

Fandom Category: Ouran High School Host Club
Pairing: Fujioka Haruhi/Ootori Kyouya, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Kaoru, Fujioka Haruhi/Suou Tamaki, Fujioka Haruhi/Haninozuki "Honey" Mitsukuni, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Hikaru, Fujioka Haruhi/Morinozuka "Mori" Takashi
Fic Title: Five Men Fujioka Haruhi Didn't Kiss (And One She Didn't)
Author: sophiap and aishuu
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Five Things Meme
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is a lovely character study and I like that it's left up to interpretation as to which kiss is real.

Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?/Where's Waldo
Pairing: Carmen Sandiego/Waldo
Fic Title: Escape
Author: Lady_Ganesh
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Established relationship, crossover
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Carmen/Waldo is one of those pairings that takes you aback at first...and then you realize that it is completely AWESOME. Most of my favorite Carmen/Waldo stories have already been rec'd but here's a lovely little vignette that hits all the right notes.

Fandom Category: Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys
Pairing: Nancy Drew/Frank Hardy
Fic Title: Nancy Drew and the Tipping Point Mystery
Author: medie/Medie
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13. Warnings for sexual allusions
Genre: Crossover, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Nancy/Frank is a crossover pairing that's actually happened in canon, although the two of them have always been in relationships, which prevents them from taking things further despite their mutual attraction. In this story, an older Nancy and Frank are working another case together except this time, neither of them are in a relationship. This is a seriously sexy read without being explicit.

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

Fandom Category: Lord of the Rings
Pairing: OC/Elrohir, OC/Faramir (unrequited), OC/Imrahil
Fic Title: Captain, My Captain
Author: Isabeau of Greenlea
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13. Warnings for violence, mentions of past torture and rape
Genre: Action/Adventure
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: To be honest, I find it difficult to describe this story without making the OC, Hethlin, sound like a terrible Mary Sue. On paper, it may seem like she hits a lot of those cliches: traumatic past, unknowingly related (however distantly) to Aragorn, hiding her gender to become a part of Faramir's Rangers (with their full cognizance), unusual abilities, and so on. But Hethlin is a fully fleshed out, realistically flawed, genuinely noble character. The supporting cast is also fantastic--as with Hethlin, everyone in this story is very humanly written, with all their virtues and their foibles. My favorite part of this story though? Imrahil, Prince of Dol Amroth, and Faramir's uncle. Isabeau has taken a completely tertiary character and made him a vibrant, compelling character with a family that is impossible not to love. Many LotR OC stories tend to focus on the characters of the Fellowship or the Elves, but if you want a chance to spend some time with a different cast of characters--namely the Southern Rangers and the people of Dol Amroth--this is a story you'll want to read. Check out the author's profile to see some of the other stories she's written in this universe.

Day 26 - A future fic.

Fandom Category: Gundam Wing
Pairing: Sally Po/Chang Wufei
Fic Title: The Phoenix and the Dragon
Author: Nightheart
Rating/Warning(s): K+/PG
Genre: Future fic
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Sally Po is my absolute favorite Gundam girl and I feel like this story perfectly captures her badassery. I really, really enjoyed this take on the Chinese clans in the colonies and on Earth. I also feel like Wufei, in this story, undergoes a realistic change in his views--instead of holding on to his misogyny, he matures and comes to appreciate Sally's agency and her strength.

Day 27 - A pre-series fic.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Riza Hawkeye/Roy Mustang
Fic Title: Lemon Tea
Author: Shimegami-chan
Rating/Warning(s): K/G
Genre: Pre-series, gen
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is an old, ooooooold favorite of mine. Features some fun Roy and Maes banter and a lovely, burgeoning friendship between Roy and Riza.

Day 28 - A kink fic.

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: The same deep water as you
Author: musesfool/victoria_p
Rating/Warning(s): E/NC-17. Warnings for kink- domination/submission, cross dressing, light bondage, spanking, collars, implied pegging
Genre: PWP, smut
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Not only is this a super sexy and kinky read, but it's also a great character study for both Natasha and Steve, written by one of my favorite authors.

Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: Safe
Author: cassandraoftroy
Rating/Warning(s): M/R. Warnings for light BDSM and kink negotiation
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I really, really adore this fic. Not only is it hnnnnngh, seriously sexy, but both of the characters feel very true to themselves and it's actually very romantic. I especially love Steve in this story.

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

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Hermione Granger/Cedric Diggory
Fic Title: "The Boy Who Died" and "A New School Year"
Author: koalathebear
Link: Part 1:
Part 2:
Part 3:
Part 4:
Part 5:
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Words cannot describe how much I adore this story. The author does an amazing job of weaving a story wherein Hermione comes to befriend, and eventually fall in love with, Cedric during the events of the Goblet of Fire. The first 2 parts, which makes up the first story, "The Boy Who Died" follow canon events, but the continuation (the last 3 parts) assumes Cedric didn't die and that he's joining them for the events of The Order of the Phoenix. A seriously fantastic read.

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

Fandom Category: Harry Potter
Pairing: Hermione Granger/Viktor Krum
Fic Title: Winterwhere
Author: thimble_kiss
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, fluff
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I've rec'd thimble_kiss in an author rec challenge, so I don't know if this is cheating or not, but this is one of my favorite stories from her, that I love to read over and over. Her Viktor is a thing of beauty and I love how much he appreciates Hermione and his insight into her character. This story perfectly captures the feeling of first, teenage love and the prose is gorgeous. It makes me swoon every time.

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Pepper Potts/Tony Stark, background Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers and Clint Barton/Phil Coulson
Fic Title: every man's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed girl
Author: leashy_bebes
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: Comedy, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: In honor of Halloween, here's a fun Halloween-themed Avengers fic. The reveal of each character's costume is delightful and Tony and Pepper's interactions are pure gold.

Hi mods, may I have fandom tags for The Hardy Boys and Gundam Wing? Also I need pairing tags for Fujioka Haruhi/Haninozuka "Honey" Mitsukuni, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Hikaru, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Kaoru, Fujioka Haruhi/Suou Tamaki, and Sally Po/Chang Wufei. (Don't worry, all those anime pairings have been listed in accordance with the new policy on anime pairing tags.)
