Chuck, 2 recs, Sarah Walker/Chuck Bartowski, by ndnickerson (Explicit)  
Fandom: Chuck
Pairing: Sarah Walker/Chuck Bartowski
Title: the secret you don't know how to tell
Author: ndnickerson
Link: LJ | AO3
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit / no warnings
Word Count: 3038
Recced on LiveJournal By: tinnny

Trope: First Time & Screwing the Chain of Command (all s1-2 Chuck fic qualifies for that :) )

Why This Must Be Read: Sarah and Chuck have to share an apartment for a mission, and their sexual frustration is palpable. Like all of ndnickerson's fic, this is really well written. Heartbreaking but still optimistic, and just a little bit kinky. "If you talk, it's over." She said it so faintly, but he had never expected anything else. Not really.

Fandom: Chuck
Pairing: Sarah Walker/Chuck Bartowski
Title: to keep the sky from falling
Author: ndnickerson

Rating/Warning(s): Explicit / no warnings
Word Count: 5311
Spoilers: explicit spoilers for all of Chuck season 2
Recced on LiveJournal By: tinnny

Trope: Mind Games (it would have fit a few other tropes as well, but not all is as it seems in this story, so I chose the best-fitting one)

Why This Must Be Read: Chuck and Sarah are ordered to announce their fake engagement, and they're not happy with that at all, for several reasons. Beautiful depictions of both Chuck's and Sarah's conflicting thoughts, as per usual in ndnickerson's fic, plus hot sex. Everyone's keeping secrets from everyone else, and the story holds a few surprises on the way - for the characters and the reader.


(actually, both stories belong to ndnickerson's Chuck S3 AU, but I hope it's okay to count them as two tropes)

You're welcome! Such great fic!

I hadn't seen before that your fic is on the AO3 too. Now they all went to my Later pile. :D

I'm having so much fun rereading old fics on my computer to check them for tropes. :D

And now I want to rewatch Chuck. //)

FYI on the first rec—you can use a single square to count toward two bingos, but you cannot use one fic to count for two squares. Does that make sense? I think we neglected to clarify that in the guidelines, but we want to make sure you have all the info to get your bingo!

(Also, these recs look fantastic and I'm super-looking forward to reading them. Cannot think of the last time I found good Chuckfic!)

Hee, I'm sorry for the confusion. I did not count the first fic towards two squares. I just put "First Time" as a... hint that it's also first time. But I already filled the First Time square with my last rec. :)

I was just wondering if the two fics in this post count for two squares, even though they're part of one series.

(Thanks!)

Sweet, sounds like you're on top of things! We've just had to clarify that for a couple of others, so I wanted to make sure there was no confusion. Thanks :D
