30 Day Shipper Meme: Day 15-21

* Day 15 - A fic that convinced you of a pairing you previously hated.

Fandom Category: Star Trek
Pairing: Nyota Uhura/ James Kirk
Fic Title: Who Shall Inherit This Earth
Author: sinverguenza
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance, Adventure, Angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Everything Sin writes is excellent, which is why when she took on this pairing I gave it a chance. I was never a huge Uhura/Kirk fan, I preferred Uhura with Spock from the time that I was a little girl and was so happy when the ninth movie came out and them being a couple became canon. But then I read this story. I tell you, I fell in love with this pairing. Not only is the fic beautifully written, it makes the possibility of this couple make sense. By the end I was rooting for them and as a shipper I never looked back.

* Day 16 - An epic fic.
Fandom Category: Avengers
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Loki
Fic Title: Galatea
Author: Sigridhr
Rating/Warning(s): Mature, Rape/Non-Con
Genre: Adventure, Romance, Angst
WIP?: yes

Why This Must Be Read: Coming in at 34,240 this wip promises to be an epic and wonderful fic about Darcy and Loki. (What if Darcy was the one with all the power?) This author writes the best Loki I have ever read. He is complicated and hard to understand, and I imagine difficult to write. When I read this fic I feel like I'm watching an Avengers movie. The characterisations are perfect, the story-line is believable, and the romance is drawn out. Love this one,the author really explores the power dynamics at play between Darcy and Loki. I look forward to every update.

* Day 17 - A short fic.
Fandom Category: Freaks and Geeks
Pairing: Lindsay Weir/Daniel Desario
Fic Title: One for the Road
Author: NeoVenus22
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Romance, PWP
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Coming in at under 1000 words this story shows us a stolen moment between Daniel and Lindsay. While watching the show I always believed there was undeniable chemistry between these two. A lovely glimpse of a couple creating secrets.

* Day 18 - An Alternate Universe fic.
Fandom Category: Avengers
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Loki, Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: Hysteria
Author: Skadi
Rating/Warning(s): Mature, Possible Dubious Consent, Doctor/Patient, Light BDSM
Genre: Alternate Universe, Romance
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: There is too many things to say about this fic and why you should read it. Here's what the author's summary says: It's 1883, in the beautiful English countryside, and Loki runs a clinic for the treatment of Hysteria. And the young newly married Darcy is his patient! This one is a fun romp with lots of sex and fun supporting characters. The author also manages to take on the stigma of women's sexuality that existed at the time.

* Day 19 - An angsty fic.
Fandom Category: Say Anything
Pairing: Diane Court/Lloyd Dobler
Fic Title: The Biggest Fool
Author: wearemany
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Angst, Romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: You can't get much angstier than Lloyd Dobbler from the movie Say Anything. This fic features Lloyd through the years, dealing with the break-up from his true love Diane. As I read this I couldn't help but hope that these two crazy kids manage to work it out. Also, Lloyd's voice is spot on in this!

* Day 20 - A fluffy fic.
Fandom Category: Everafter
Pairing: Danielle de Barbarac/Henry II of France
Fic Title: The Flight of the Queen
Author: Rana Eros
Rating/Warning(s): Gen
Genre: Romance, Fluff
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Danielle has a gift for Henry, and with the help of Leonardo da Vinci she is going to surprise him. I loved the movie Everafter and I was thrilled to read this and see a glimpse of Danielle and Henry's happily ever after. Perfection.

* Day 21 - A rare pairing fic.
Fandom Category: Avengers
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Stever Rogers
Fic Title: Button Up Your Overcoat
Author: musesfool
Rating/Warning(s): Adult
Genre: PWP, Romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Darcy teaches Steve about safe sex. And of course it does not go according to plan. There are far to few fics featuring this pairing. This one has them bantering and being cute and ultimately showing us a glimpse of friendship that promises to be something more.
