Fandom Category: Ironman
Pairing: Pepper Potts/Tony Stark
Fic Title: It's Only a Throne If You're a King
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Why This Must Be Read: Tony discovers the Home Shopping Network! Funny and with great conversations this fic feels as canon as the movies. I keep hoping the author will write the next part in the series. This reader is dying to know what Tony will try and purchase next.
* Day 23 - A pairing where one character is paired in multiple ships.
Fandom Category: Homeland
Pairing: Carrie Matheson/Nicholas Brody, Jessica Brody/Nick Brody
Fic Title: A wind that passeth away and cometh not again
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit, Infidelity
Why This Must Be Read: This author managed to go inside Brody's head and show us how he views the world. It is scary and ever-changing, but Brody survives. The contrast between the two women he shares his bed with and the tragedies that changed him forever are laid bare here. Beautifully written.
* Day 24 - A crossover pairing fic.
Fandom Category: X-Men, Thor
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Wolverine
Fic Title: Someone You've Yet To Meet
Genre: Romance, Angst
Why This Must Be Read: I clicked on this one mostly because I was curious how the author could make this pairing work. Not only does she make this pairing work, she makes it believable. No small feat. Darcy is sent to spy on Wolverine. She's not very good at it. A friendship develops between the two and leads to something profoundly deeper. A delightful read that I wasn't expecting to like as much as I did.
* Day 26 - A future fic.
Fandom Category: Easy A
Pairing: Olive Penderghast/Jack Griffiths
Fic Title: The Staff Room
Why This Must Be Read: I have to admit that I enjoy unconventional pairings best of all. So when I watched this movie I immediately began shipping Olive and her english teacher. I loved their conversations in the movie and I thought it was sweet how he really cared for her. I was so happy to find a fic that explores this couple in the future! Very funny and written in Olive's voice, this one is worth a look.
* Day 27 - A pre-series fic.
Fandom Category: 30 Rock
Pairing: Liz Lemon/Jack Donaghy
Fic Title: Superman Meets Geek Girl
Why This Must Be Read: This fic tells us the story of Liz and Jack's first meeting, which happened years before their first meeting. Liz is the awkward teenager we know she was, and on this day she met a handsome college student. The conversations are whip-smart and make this fic a fun read.
* Day 28 - A kink fic.
Fandom Category: Push
Pairing: Cassie Holmes/Nick Gant
Fic Title: Driving with the brakes on
Rating/Warning(s): Adult, one reference to offscreen sexual assault, Cassie is 16
Genre: Romance, Adventure, Angst
Why This Must Be Read: The kink is mutual masturbation, okay? The premise is that Cassie getting off will clear her head, enabling her to have clearer visions. She asks Nick for help. After reading this I was stunned that it wasn't a trope that had dozens of fics written about it in this fandom. It makes so much sense! And kudos to the author who built an entire multi-layered story around the idea. Very well written and very hot. If you are a fan of this pairing at all you need to read this fic.
* Day 29 - A fic that best deals with that character you loved who was unfairly fridged/killed in canon.
Spoiler for the Hunger Games Books.

Fandom Category: Hunger Games
Pairing: Katniss Everdeen/Cinna
Fic Title: Untitled
Why This Must Be Read: I was heartbroken when Cinna died in the books and I was thrilled to come across a fic that gave Cinna a happy ending. Although not a long fic, this one brought a smile to my face.
Fandom Category: Heroes
Pairing: Claire Bennet/ Nathan Petrelli, Claire bennet/Peter Petrelli
Fic Title: Undone
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, Incest, Dub-con, Underage Sex
Genre: Romance, Angst
Why This Must Be Read: I love fics that make me think "Oh, I'm going to hell for this." And no fic does that better than this one. You can blame it on those gorgeous actors who had so much chemistry oncscreen and fic writers like this one who took what we saw and ran with it. One of my all time favorite fics ever. And I don't even mind this handbasket I'm in.
* Day 31 - BONUS - Wildcard/Catch up on a missed day
Fandom Category: The Office
Pairing: Pam Beasley/Dwight Schrute (friendship)
Fic Title: Out of my Mind
Why This Must Be Read: Okay, look. Yes I ship that. But mostly in the sense that I notice the way Dwight sometimes looks at Pam like he sees something he wants. Maybe not Pam, but someone like Pam. I love their weird friendship on-screen and how despite everything they always look out for each other. This fic has all that and more. Dwight has a dream about Pam. And awkwardness ensues. Keep an open mind and give it a look. It's quite good.
