Vampire Diaries, 4 recs, Caroline Forbes/Stefan Salvatore + 1 Bonnie Bennet/Damon Salvatore  
Fandom: Vampire Diaries
Pairing: Bonnie Bennet/Damon Salvatore
Title: hold me (like I was born to be held)

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for graphic sex
Word Count/WIP?: 3,628 /no
Special Rec: 25 of 30

Why This Must Be Read: Bamon is my Vampire Diaries OTP and the prison world storyline has inspired many great stores. Canon-divergent from 6x10 (Christmas Through Your Eyes), this is the best of them. It is the most emotionally raw and beautifully romantic smut I have ever read. The sex is incredible, but it's the lovely, complicated mess that is Bonnie and Damon together that makes this piece so powerful. A must-read for fans of this pairing.

Why This Must Be Read: A future story of a relationship that is being built on friends-to-lovers with big (and healthy) boosts of self-esteem and security for Caroline, courtesy of caring and understanding Stefan. This fic highlights everything that could be beautiful about this relationship and fills it with so much love it makes my heart glow.

Special Rec: 27a+b of 30
Why These Must Be Read:These two stories were written long before the show started thinking of Caroline and Stefan as anything more than pals. Written by the always excellent lit_chick08, I like to think of them as a matching set: how Caroline and Stefan's relationship pasts lead them to each other.

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's brilliant! An unsentimental Caroline deals with ripper!Stefan and beyond. Also written before the show jumped on the Steroline bandwagon, this is friends to lovers in the best possible way. Both of them are so well written and there are no punches pulled.
