Day Thirty-One: Multiple Fandoms / Multiple Pairings

Day 31 - BONUS - Wildcard/Catch up on a missed day
During this month, I recced for a different pairing each day, but I still seem to have a few pairings for which I haven't recced. I've limited myself to ten of them, but there's more. And yes, now that I realise that, I'm quite afraid by the amount of shipping I do....

Fandom Category: Leverage
Pairing: Sophie Devereaux/Nathan Ford
Fic Title: There's nothing new under the sun
Author: alinaandalion
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, graphic sex
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I have to say that for the past few weeks Leverage pretty much pwned my mind (yes I've just discovered this show and it's awesome), and while I love both Official Couples, I just can't live without Nate/Sophie. This fic is beautiful and it shows the progression of their relationship after San Lorenzo. Nate and Sophie are just spot on and this fic is a must-read!

Fandom Category: The West Wing
Pairing: Donna Moss/Josh Lyman
Fic Title: Accidental Metamorphoses
Author: shutterbug_12
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, sexual situations.
Genre: Romance, a tiny bit of angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I've already recced CJ/Danny in one of the other days, but I have to say that I love all the Official Couples for this show, so I give you three more. First, Josh/Donna, seven years in the making. This fic is set post-administration, and like what happened in the show, Donna is the one taking the matter at hands when it comes to their relationship. This fic is just so well-written! shutterbug_12 wrote the characters, the dialogue to the perfection. When I was reading this, I really had the voices of Josh and Donna in my head. This could really have happened in the show.

Fandom Category: The West Wing
Pairing: Abbey Bartlet/Jed Bartlet
Fic Title: Father's Day Breakfast
Author: Mrs Elizabeth Gibbs
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance, family
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Who doesn't love the First Couple, really? In this fic set post-administration, the whole Bartlet family is up at the Farm for Father's Day. This fic shows perfectly that more than anything else, their family is what is really important for Abbey and Jed. This is probably one of the things I would have loved seeing if the show had gone on for a little while longer. ;) Also, there's the Bartlet flirting blatantly in front of everyone, so that's always a plus! :P

Fandom Category: The West Wing
Pairing: Kate Harper/Will Bailey
Fic Title: Too close to call
Author: urban_stoop
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Once again, it's a post-administration fic because I love those. This is set approximately a year and a half after the end of the show, when Will's waiting the result of the Oregon Fourth. I would have oved seeing Will and Kate reunited, or at least an hint about that in the Three Years Later bit of 'The Ticket'. For those who are like me on this, this fic will fill your need, trust me. It's well-written, the awkwardness they're quite famous for is there, and it's just perfect for them.

Fandom Category:The Pretender
Pairing: Catherine Parker/Sydney
Fic Title: Kindred Spirits
Author: SheSailsShips
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, Friendship
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Ever since that flashback scene in 'Inner Sense', I ship Sydney/Catherine even though I'm pretty sure that with it being the Centre and all, nothing ever happened. This fic is really sad as it's set just after Sydney and Jacob's car accident. I love that Catherine is there for Sydney even though he doesn't think he needs her. This is a beautiful fic, and for those of us shippers, this is a must-read.

Fandom Category: NCIS
Pairing: Jenny Sheppard/Leroy Jethro Gibbs
Fic Title: Stuck
Author: Calliatra
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance, Christmas Fic
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is the fic where the elevator finally rebels against Gibbs' constant abuse. :D Of course, Jen is there too. This is funny, fluffy, and everything you'd expect a Christmas fic to be really. There's some nice banter, perfectly in-character for these two. The kind of fic you need to read whenever you're feeling sad about them, really.

Fandom Category: CSI
Pairing: Catherine Willows/Gil Grissom
Fic Title: Could it be Magic?
Author: csiangel
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: First things first, today is Halloween, and it's a fic set at Halloween. Great timing, uh? :P I'm a GCR, and even though it's been a long while since I've read a fic for them, they're still here in my little shipper heart. This fic has them at a point where they are ready for more, and it's just them. Plus, you get to imagine Catherine in a catsuit, and even if you're a straight woman like me, just try and imagine Marg/Cath in a catsuit. See what I mean?

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Pepper Potts/Tony Stark
Fic Title: And I would give all this and heaven too
Author: speckleberry/cheshire_song
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance, friendship
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is a fic where Tony just thinks too much. And where Pepper somehow ends up turning towards Natasha for comfort, even though neither women really knows how to achieve that. The three of them are in-character... Well, I should have said four, because Jarvis is also acting as he would do in one of the movies. It's really a beautiful fic, and I won't understand if you don't have a huge smile on your fic by the end of it.

Fandom Category: Ringer
Pairing: Bridget Kelly/Andrew Martin
Fic Title: Second Chances (Martins against the World)
Author: misscam
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Angst, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is set post-series finale, and it deals with what could have been after the last scene. This is what I would have wished to see had the show been renewed for a second season. The characters are all spot-on and the slow progression of Bridget's relationship with the other characters is perfect, really.

Fandom Category: Unforgettable
Pairing: Carrie Wells/Al Burns
Fic Title: Here Now
Author: lori51
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): R, sexual situations
Genre: Romance, Angst
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: Ok, first, I absolutely have no idea if the author will update it any time soon, but really, the end of chapter 3 is satisfying enough to be read as the end of the fic for me. This is set post-season finale series finale season finale (yes, CBS cancelled then un-cancelled the show), and it deals with what happened in 'The Man in the Woods'. It's a really cute fic for these two, and there needs to be more because waiting until next summer for more episodes is going to be long!

Mods, can tags be added for 'ship: kate harper/will bailey', 'ship: catherine parker/sydney', 'fandom: unforgettable' and 'ship: carrie wells/al burns'? :P
