Day 26 - A future fic.
Fandom Category: The Hunger Games
Pairing: Katniss Everdeen/Gale Hawthrone, Katniss Everdeen/Peeta Mellark, Katniss/Character Resolution
Fic Title: Wanted
Genre: future fic, angst, war torn kids
Why This Must Be Read: Honestly, I think this captures pretty perfectly how Katniss deals the events of the series and fills the time left from the last page of the last chapter and between up to the epilogue and has it make sense. The language is lovely and settles the bonds and thread of her relationship with Gale, Peeta, and herself in a realistic and lovely way.
Day 27 - A pre-series fic.
Fandom Category: Star Trek
Pairing: Winona Kirk/George Kirk
Fic Title: What To Expect When You're Expecting
Rating/Warning(s): R, lots of language!
Genre: backstory, spies bc Alias!
Why This Must Be Read: I was going to rec another fic here but then I read this and OMG I COULDN'T NOT REC IT. It's INCREDIBLY hilarious and touching and sets up an amazing and delightful backstory for Winona and George.
Day 28 - A kink fic.
Fandom Category: The O.C.
Pairing: Taylor Townsend/Ryan Atwood
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, kinks, so many; teenagers having sex.
Genre: AU, sexy times, kinks (sub/DOM, blindfold, public-ish sex, vouyerism, dirty talk, spanking, handcuffs, candle wax),
Why This Must Be Read: It has Ryan and Taylor hooking up in season three and finding they're both very interested in exploration of many kinks. So many. The last chapter especially it covers various kinks even some accidental vouyerism. Pow chika pow.
Day 29 - A fic that best deals with that character you loved who was unfairly fridged/killed in canon.
Fandom Category: Pitch Black, Aliens
Pairing: Carylon Fry/Richard B. Riddick, Ellen Ripley/Dwayne Hicks
Fic Title: Leaving Monsters in the Dark Series
Genre: fix it fic, crossover, AU, violence
WIP?: No? Series of oneshots that can all be read on their own.
Why This Must Be Read: So I was only going to rec the first fic A Moment of Dying that fixes Carolyn's death but I had forgotten that it's part of a series and the series continues to fix ANOTHER canon death: Hicks, from Aliens! Two for the price of one! The first fic, A Moment of Dying, deal with Carolyn and Riddick, the second with Ellen and Hicks, and the series blends the two verses in a very cool and realistic way.
and because as you can tell I REALLY LOVE Carolyn(/Riddick) you get a second!
Fandom Category: Pitch Black
Pairing: Carylon Fry/Richard B. Riddick
Fic Title: Chronicles of Fry
Genre: fix it fic, sexy times, UST, RST
Why This Must Be Read: Yes, let all the fics fix Carolyn's death! Carolyn is found on the planet, not dead but gravely wounded, and fights to live and find her way back to the others. Canon-compliant with Chronicles of Riddick.
Day 30 - A fic you've read and reread a dozen times.
Fandom Category: Sailor Moon
Pairing: Tuskino Usagi/Chiba Mamoru, Aino Minako/Kunzite, Minuzo Ami/Zoicite, Hino Rei/Jadeite, Kino Makoto/Nephrite
Fic Title: As We Were
Genre: team, friendship, romance, humour, people get drunk in college (a lot), violence,
Why This Must Be Read: First thing first: the formatting sucks. It's not the author's fault, this was written years ago on FF.net and some of the changes made to the site have messed with a lot of fic's formatting. Still, I've read this fic on and off since it was published in 2001. I just love it?! It's so much fun! It's like a college AU but isn't! It funny and sweet and just really fun to read. The girls and the guys act like such college kids and omg the dialogue! I don't if I'd called it the best fic I've ever read but it's one I keep going back to and smiling over.
Fandom Category: Gilmore Girls
Pairing: Lorelai Gilmore/Luke Danes
Fic Title: Twelve Days
Genre: sexy times, romance, holiday fic,
Why This Must Be Read: I read this fic even if it isn't the holiday season! Mag1 takes the theme of the Twelve Days of Christmas song and adds it to Luke and Lorelai's interactions. The results are a wonderful!
Day 31 - BONUS - Wildcard/Catch up on a missed day
Fandom Category: NCIS
Pairing: Ziva David/Tony DiNozzo
Fic Title: Perspective
Author: [Unknown LJ tag]user="ygrawn">
Genre: UST, RST, multiple perspectives, team, friendship, romance
Why This Must Be Read: I love fics that show couples from an outsiders perspective. This is one of my favourite because brings in the team and how much they care about Tony and Ziva's happiness.
a bonus fic in the bonus round? I'M A REBEL.
Fandom Category: Supernatural
Pairing: Jo Harvelle/Dean Winchester
Fic Title: Love Conquers Everything (And If Not, There’s A Giant Arsenal In The Cellar)
Author: [Unknown LJ tag]user="chaletian">
Genre: RST, HAPPY ENDINGS!, AU, domestic hunters is a thing right?
Why This Must Be Read: I was going to rec this in the AU or future fic categories but I found ones I liked better. Still I wanted to rec this. This give Jo and Dean a happier, and definitely healthier ending to what the show would have ever done. The end of this fic links to others which I also recommend because it's a short series of individual fics in the same setting and they're all pretty great.
