Battlestar Galactica, 4 Recs, Kara/Lee  
This is a list of canon-based recs for pilots. The spoiler points will be indicated by season, hope that's helpful.

1. Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse (crossover)
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama
Fic Title: Did I Fall Asleep (Special Rec: 27/30) (spoilers for the series finale, Daybreak Part 2)
Author: rayruz
Link: Did I Fall Asleep, Part 1 and Part 2
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: For the simple reason that if any fic will ever make you feel better about the finale while reconciling with canon, this is it. It's a crossover with Dollhouse, involving Kara and Lee as an Active and Handler - but you don't need to be familiar with Dollhouse to enjoy this fic, though you will find some things funnier if you are.

2. Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama
Fic Title: Breathing Room (Special Rec: 28/30) (spoilers for Season 2.12)
Author: callmeonetrack
Link: Breathing Room
Rating/Warning(s): R, talk of rape
Genre: UST
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Kara and Lee adjust to life on Pegasus....and without each other, they kind of suck at it. Which leads to them making late-night gym not-dates just so they can spar.

This is one of the greatest pilots fics I've ever read and much better than my clumsy description makes it sound, not least because Kara and Lee and their relationship as written here sounds genuinely like what it could have been in canon - the oppressiveness of the environment on Pegasus, their absolute comfort combined with off-the-charts UST, and more than anything, their friendship - are all just that perfectly captured.


3. Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama
Fic Title: Nine Lives (Special Rec: 29/30) (spoilers up to Season 2.12)
Author: callmeonetrack
Link: Nine Lives (a remix of Cats by mserrada)
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: Friendship, UST
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Each time Lee has a near-death experience, Kara freaks out a little inside. BSG fic and canon usually have it the other way around, but this trope flip is wonderful because it's another of those stories that feels so rooted in their canon relationship - not too given to mushy verbalising, but with a rock-solid mix of friendship and UST that will warm the cockles of every shipper heart. It's a fantastic one-shot, so do read. (and the formatting on the drabble it is a remix of is a little messed up, but it's a great drabble so read that too!)


4. Fandom Category: Battlestar Galactica
Pairing: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama
Fic Title: Pillow Talk (Special Rec: 30/30) (spoilers up to Season 2.12)
Author: callmeonetrack
Link: Pillow Talk
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Friendship
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:. Because Lee Adama makes a really nice pillow. Also, as a fic that focuses on pilots as best friends who'll always have each others six, it's sweet and funny and pitch-perfect.



Well, that's the end of my 30 in 30 - it's been a pleasure, guys, I hope you liked the recs!
