Revolution, 4 recs, Charlie Matheson/Bass Monroe  
Fandom Category: Revolution
Pairing: Charlie Matheson/Bass Monroe
Fic Title: Alliance Doesn't Mean Forever
Author: Corycides
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/862863/chapters/1654213
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Angst, Romance, Adventure
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: In five chapters this author takes the most unlikely of couples and makes them work. It takes time to build trust between them and this fic goes slow, giving the characters time to sort through their past and learn to be together. There is a slow build to them being a couple and I found myself rushing to the end to see if they managed to get a HEA.

Fic Title: blood in her eyes
Author: shiegra

Rating/Warning(s): Explicit
Genre: Angst, Sex
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This fic perfectly captures the dynamics between Charlie and Bass, there is no trust and they don't even like each other. But at the same time there is an attraction there, simmering under the surface. And when it ignites, look out! This story is smoldering without being over the top and is believable.

Fic Title: What Would Happen If We Kissed...
Author: ImLuvinMyThesaurus

Rating/Warning(s): Explicit
Genre: Angst, Romance, Sex
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is a take on Bass and Charlie working together and pretending to be a couple. This goes in the direction you would expect, but along the way it is funny with snarky dialogue (everything I love about these two characters)! The author doesn't forget the past that these two share and she manages to seamlessly incorporate it while making this story believable and in character. (Also, it's freaking hot!)

Fic Title: In Name Only
Author: Corycides

Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Angst, Romance, Marriage of Convenience
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: This story incorporates one of my favorite tropes: forced marriage! Bass and Charlie marry to end the war between the Rebels and the Militia. Neither is happy with the arrangement, but they begin to tolerate each other. Slowly things begin to change between the two and feelings develop. As always with this author, the dialogue is wonderful and the characterizations are spot on.



Mods, may I have a tag for ship: Charlie Matheson/Bass Monroe? Thank you.
