Multifandom, 8 Recs, Various pairings

I could not resist this month’s challenge, but I also could not resist procrastinating on it, so here are all of my anniversary gift recs at once!

Fandom: The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
Pairing: Frankie Landau-Banks/Alpha
Title: we spies, we slow hands
Author: disco_vendetta
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/601052
Rating/Warning(s): Not Rated
Word Count/WIP?: 3003; complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: purficklyclean

Why This Must Be Read: This story is for my paper rec, due to both the origami dog in the fic and the postcard that makes a notable appearance at the end. I love the book The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, and the general lack of fic for it is a tragedy; luckily the fic that does exist is great. This fic takes place after the novel and looks at Frankie and Alpha in their college years and beyond. It uses the tone and style of the novel beautifully, it involves spies, and most importantly, it involves Frankie continuing to be a genius – what more could you want?

9 Recs (8 Fandoms)

Fandom: The Book Thief
Pairing: Liesel Meminger/Max Vandenburg
Title: But You Built Me Dreams Instead
Author: olivja
Link: @ AO3
Rating: Mature
Warning(s): PTSD, references to death, as well as nazism, as one might expect from the canon.
Word Count/WIP: 13,348 (Complete)
Recced on LiveJournal by: galfridian
Special Rec: 13/20

Why This Must Be Read: This begins where The Book Thief ends and follows Liesel and Max through the following five years. Like the canon, it strikes a balance between the grimness of the setting and little joys. The evolution of Liesel and Max's relationship feels sincere and earned.
