Because who doesn't love the Mother of All Destiny gettin' some?

Pairing: Sarah Connor/Kyle Reese

Why This Must Be Read: Though the universe has yet to grant me the TSCC version of the "Kyle lives!" AU we all want and need, I do like this one, which follows the first movie and doesn't let you forget that John was Kyle's commander before he was his son—or that Sarah and Kyle aren't so much deeply in love as thrown together and making the most of their reality.

Why This Must Be Read: A post-series exploration of an assortment of characters and their day-to-day survival and how they view their alleged savior, this story is honest and a bit haunting in the way that the best Terminator fics are.

Why This Must Be Read: "Convergence" will scramble your brains as much as anything actually shown in TSCC canon. Following the cliffhanger of "Born to Run," Sarah does what she needs to do to ensure that humanity still gets its savior and the Reese brothers still go back in time. There's an impressive blend of old and new characters, some good shippy times, and though it'll take a bit for everything to make sense, this story is well worth the read.

Why This Must Be Read: There's nothing star-crossed about the relationship between Sarah and the older Reese brother. It's debatable whether they even like each other as co-people. But they need each other, and the understand each other, and ultimately they don't really have anyone else to connect with, to a certain extent. So here we have a fic that (briefly) explores their relationship and its inherent complications and twists. It's also fairly hot *and* squarely in character—a rare combination.

Why This Must Be Read: I prefer Sarah/Kyle, but I'm open to Sarah/Derek when it's done right, and this is one of those cases. "The Promise" is short but packs a heck of a punch as it circles Sarah's single-mindedness, Derek's desire for life, and their shared humanity. You won't believe what this author can do in so little space, really.

I'm the same, I'm much more partial to Kyle/Sarah than Derek/Sarah even though I love TSCC far more, but Sarah getting some in general is A+

Oh, totally. When I was writing my own TSCC fic, I went out of my way to make sure she ended up with the younger Reese boy, but I think they each bring out different things in her and sort of fit better into different parts of her life. Like, Derek would've been not the best ambassador from the future in T1, but she doesn't really respond that well to tenderness later on, you know?

Either way, she works so hard, she deserves a good lay or several. Yaaaaay fic!
