2 Once Upon a Time & 1 Lizzie Bennet Diaries Rec

Fandom Category: Once Upon a Time
Pairing: Captain Hook / Aurora
Fic Title: maybe i'm meant for the sea
Author: volchitza
Rating/Warning(s): No warnings archived, but ungraphic sex
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This fic takes Hook and Aurora out of their canon location while still being true to their characters. And not to mention, it is so lyrical and beautifully written the images just float into your brain. I have not read a one-shot this good in a while.

Fandom Category: Once Upon a Time
Pairing: Captain Hook / Aurora
Fic Title: Straight on 'Til Morning
Author: ladydragonstone
Rating/Warning(s): Sexual scenes, graphic death
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is perfect. The biggest issue I have with shipping this non-canon ship is that fic-writers seem to like to gloss over the aspects of Hook and Aurora that fundamentally make them who they are. This fic manages to work around tricky abandonment issues of character arcs by simultaneously existing in the past (Neverland, therefore accounting for that pesky aging thing) and the present. Hook kidnaps Aurora as part of his plot to skin his crocodile, but never abandons that mission. It's beautiful and so ridiculously in character and completely heartbreaking and updated regularly. What more could you ask?

Fandom Category: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
Pairing: Lizzie / Darcy with a side of Lizzie & Charlotte BFF-ness
Fic Title: Independent Study
Author: Peripeteia
Rating/Warning(s): Sexual scenes
Genre: Romance/Humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I love this web show but I've had quite enough of the angst lately, and this is coming from a person who thinks most fandoms ought to have more angst. Other than that the summary basically says it all: “Charlotte, hi. I think I just accidentally slept with Darcy.”
