Rating: Teen/PG (not rated on AO3)
Word Count: 3991 complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: lanalucy

Why This Must Be Read:
Well, frankly, anything alyse writes is well-written and usually scorching hot. This one is one of my favorite tropes: friends to lovers. It's awkward and funny, and yes, hot, even though it's fade-to-black.

Kirk and Uhura are forced to marry, for reasons. This is the hilarious aftermath.

Why This Must Be Read:
Jane Foster and Thor Odinson at Hogwarts. Jane and Thor keep their signature personality traits while fitting perfectly into Rowling's universe. It's a lot of fun.

Special Rec: 14 of 30
Fandom: The X Files
Pairing: Dana Scully/Alex Krycek
Title: On the Wall

Rating/Warnings: Explicit, rape/noncon
Word Count: 3985 complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: lanalucy

Why This Must Be Read:
There's wonderful insight into Krycek and Scully, and each of their feelings for Mulder, by virtue of their decisions when they're forced to make choices.

The noncon is more coercion from an outside party, but it could definitely still be triggery.

Special Rec: 15 of 30
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Pairing: Emily Prentiss/David Rossi
Title: A Friend Who'll Tease is Better

Why This Must Be Read:
Sometimes when the pressure gets too much, you just need to relax. This is a great example of that friends-to-lovers trope I mentioned above.
