Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls
Fic Title: Into the Blue
Rating/Warning(s): Mature; Mentions of Logan's abuse, Veronica's trauma, underage/statutory rape
Genre: Drama, Angst
Why This Must Be Read: This fic is pretty close to how I wished things would have gone post-season 1, at least when it came to Logan. One of my favorite things about it is the way it withholds Logan/Veronica interaction to great effect; it's all Logan pov, although you get emails from Veronica, and you wonder how they'll come together and when and what will happen. It's a (fraught) pleasure reading how Logan comes to terms, faces Aaron, and begins to move on.
Fandom Category: Veronica Mars
Pairing: Veronica Mars/Logan Echolls, with side Veronica Mars/Duncan Kane
Fic Title: Sleep, Perchance...
Rating/Warning(s): Mature; Noncon, slutshaming and bullying
Genre: Angst, Romance
Why This Must Be Read: This is an interesting, harsh, pre-series to AU look at Veronica's life at and after Shelley's party, via Duncan's, her own, and Logan's perspective. It's crushing to read about the kinds of things that may have happened to her afterwards and Logan's hand in them. In this story, Logan feels guilty, and there's a back-and-forth and eventual reconciliation when he learns what happened to her and that she suspected him. The ending is hopeful, but don't look for much sympathy for Duncan here.
