Anne of Green Gables, 5 recs, multiple pairings

1. Fandom Category: Anne of Green Gables
Pairing: Not really evident at first, but Walter/Una
Fic Title: Rilla Blythe's Wedding: A Not Entirely Comprehensive Account (special rec: 4/30)
Author: Scylla
Link: Rilla Blythe's Wedding: A Not Entirely Comprehensive Account
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Humour, drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: As with much LMM stuff, there is no smut (and for once, I'm not bothered about that - this is one fandom where, childhood nostalgia reasons aside, it would just feel wrong). In fact, the OTP kind of takes a backseat to everyone else until almost the end, by which time it is totally worth it. But the tone is near-perfect, the closest to canon I've ever seen in a fic, and the dialogue for most of the characters is spot-on - by which I mean, scarily spot-on.


2.Fandom Category: Anne of Green Gables
Pairing: Anne Shirley/Gilbert Blythe
Fic Title: An Inclement Day For Picnicking (special rec: 5/30)
Author: Scylla
Link: An Inclement Day For Picnicking
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Humour
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Again, Scylla nails the tone - from Anne's inner musings to the dialogue (Marilla and Mrs. Lynde <333), this feels like an L.M. Montgomery outtake from the Anne of Windy Poplars era, and when it comes to LMM fic, there is no higher compliment than that. It's funny, and sweet, and everything I love about the series itself (well, almost) even if our OTP doesn't get enough time together it's well worth checking out.


3. Fandom Category: Anne of Green Gables
Pairing: Anne Shirley/Gilbert Blythe
Fic Title: With Ruches of Silk (special rec: 6/30)
Author: lotesse
Link: With Ruches of Silk
Rating/Warning(s): R, Roleplay
Genre: Humour, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Yet another author who hits the LMM tone-nail squarely on the head - the beginning part of this fic, with the poetry references, Patty's Place flirting and Anne/Gilbert UST, is absolutely delightful and reads like LMM deciding to write outtakes (which is a fantastic sign).....but it's not all LMM-ish, note the rating please. And I mean that in a really good way.


4. Fandom Category: Anne of Green Gables
Pairing: Anne Shirley/Gilbert Blythe
Fic Title: Talk of the Town (special rec: 7/30)
Author: Rina (rinadoll)
Link: Talk of the Town
Rating/Warning(s): None
Genre: Humour
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: People gossip after Anne and Gilbert get engaged. It's classic Avonlea style, and absolutely adorable, though very canon-compliant (by which I mean, very G-rated, but Gilbert and Anne together are the best, even with the G rating).


5. Fandom Category: Anne of Green Gables
Pairing: Nan Blythe/Jerry Meredith
Fic Title: Now We Star (special rec: 8/30)
Author: nen_yim
Link: Now We Start
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance, UST
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Nan gets tipsy. Again, not a single thing in here that would make the great Ms. Montgomery herself blush, but Nan/Jerry drunken flirting/UST, plus their knowing siblings are enough to make for some very understated swooniness (there is not nearly enough Nan/Jerry stuff out there for my liking).


Also mods, can I have a ship tag for Nan Blythe/Jerry Meredith, please?
