changing by elaiel
SGU
Chloe/Rush
Doesn't really require you to read the prequel: it's only mentioned once. Post s2 something activates alien DNA in Chloe... and then Rush. Nice steady build to a relationship which feels real. Draws together elements of Rush and Chloe's interaction throughout the show. It's a ship that has definitely built up a certain amount of canon basis. Their relationship is an interesting one and the way Rush relates to her is different to how he relates to anyone else in the crew.

Great voices for both of them, spot on. I really want to rewatch both movies now. Full of yay baby lesbians glee. You know what I mean? People finding out awesome things about themselves and other people, and entering the shiny scary world of girlfriends. Happy making, with a dash of drama and angst along the way.

Morgana, Arthur
Morgana and her sexuality, Morgana and her relationship with Arthur. Very well written, sparse with lots of meaning in the bits left unsaid. I've been a bit weird here and recced the DVD commentary instead of the fic, I still think it works, provided you don't mind mixing a bit of meta in with your storytelling, I like the extra insight it gives you.

Teen Wolf
Stiles/Derek [oblivious!fic]
Great Stiles voice, not at all overdone. He's nice and oblivious as well, which is always fun.

the politician's wifeby pir8fancier
Harry Potter
Hermione/Draco
I love these middle-aged, life not going as expected, boring marriage, whirlwind affair type future fics. They're both recognisable in their adult counterparts, Hermione's still ethical and somewhat stodgy, and Draco's clever and ruthless. A nice 'Englishness' to Hermione's POV. Occasionally slim on the description, but very good banter.

lab rats and tin soldiers by dancinbutterfly
X-Men FC/Avengers
Steve/Bucky, Erik, Peggy, Howard [pulling on the heartstrings]
Nice steady pacing. Focus mostly on Erik, though Steve and Bucky have some to themselves at the beginning of part two. Lovely characterisation throughout, especially Peggy through Erik's eyes.

"It takes Erik a moment to respond because Peggy Carter is radiant to the point of distraction ... He would take any test she set in front of him and fight for every question just for her approval."

Despite the fact all the emotional punches follow canon and are therefore not 'surprising,' they're really well written -- gathering up all your heartstrings and delivering a sharp tug.

Harvey/Mike [Coffee!shop!au]
Best kind of Barista fic, fluffy and yummy and full of coffee and cakes

Harvey/Mike
Donna and Harvey are siblings AU. Where their younger brother is played by Matt Bomer. MMMM. Plus Harvey and Mike are first deliciously oblivious then deliciously angsty for a very long time.

imprimatur by Closer
Harvey/Mike [soulbonding!fic]
Oh the lovely oblivious fools. I love the safety of soul-bonding fics. The way they can let go and love completely because they'll never fall out of love. It's the definition of magical.

pizza and a movie by Closer, also Donna's POV and Harvey's POV
Harvey/Mike
Pizza boy AU. Yummy, yummy banter. Lots of different things brought out through the different POVs. Despite being the same storyline 3 times over, the differing angles keep it fresh.

Harvey, Mike
Teenage runaway AU -- both of them recognisable, but very young. It's adorable. (Not slash)

Mike, OMC, Harvey [secret!identity!fic]
The one where Mike accidentally works for the boss. I love me some mistaken identity fic. Nice Michael characterisation, very hard-working and earnest.

Mike/Harvey
The one where Mike & co get hit with a string of disasters. Solid falling in love shippy fic. Nice slow build

** You may notice most of these are written by Closer. That's a hint. (Translation: go read everything Closer's written).

OH GOD THIS IS AWESOME. The Firefly one just killed all my Firefly love (Chang as Wash? Make it stop) but Troy WOULD cry at the ending. HIS EMOTIONS. I need to find more Community fic. When the voices are right, they're the bestest, funniest things ever, and this fic is SPOT ON.

Hunger Games
Katniss/Haymitch [crying now]
This is horrible, really, grind you down into tiny pieces, sad-making. A brilliant, depressing, realistic look at how things would play out had they not gone the way of the book. There is no light at the end of the tunnel.

Rumpelstiltskin, OC
Can this just be canon please? Can we have a positive representation of adoptive parents on this show please? His daughter runs the risk of sounding Mary Sue-ish, but I think she comes off as plain awesome.

condonare by etirabys
XMFC/Hannibal Rising
Charles/Hannibal/Erik [creepifying]
Shivery, creepy, awesome, but then anything with Hannibal would be. He's really great in this. Fucked up and focused. And Charles stuck in the middle, trying to understand them both and wanting Hannibal despite everything. Not so keen on the final line, but everything else is pitch perfect.

WHIP IT

searching for something that makes hearts move by mazily
Pash/Maggie
Pash's voice really works here, an outsider enough that the audience connects, but not too much, so the characterisation all rings true with what we saw in the movie. I really like her reaction to Smashley. Mostly though, I love Maggie, actually fell in love with her over the course of the fic. Somewhat abrupt ending.

it's a conversation by sprat
Maven/Bliss
OH HOT. I love Maven through Bliss' eyes, in a similar way to the rec above, the POV is pitch perfect, and through Bliss' POV we get to fall for Maven. Though it's a lot sharper and more lust-filled, which makes sense considering the object of affection in question!

the first time by elementalv
Bliss/Pash
Good Bliss POV: unsure and nervy, trying to work out what she wants, or more, knowing what she wants and working up the nerve to go for it.

Mark and Eduardo have this gorgeous D/s dynamic. Deals with Mark's gradual acceptance of the relationship as they go through the setting up of facebook. I love the dreamy blissed out-ness as Mark submits.

you think you've changed your mind by toestastegood
Mark/Eduardo [telepathy!fic]
Mark wakes up with the ability to hear Eduardo's thoughts. It would have been a lot more helpful when they were still talking to each other.
I love how matter of fact Mark is about his new power. In general I love Mark's POV, he's such an angsty, emotionally awkward little puppy. *scrunches*

they smash up in the sky by oflights
Mark/Eduardo [intense]
I adore Mark's characterisation in this. The way he's older and more mature, he's really grown up, but at the same time he's still Mark, still emotionally awkward, but just more aware of it now. there's a great tension to the whole fic, thanks to Mark's angsty POV, which is totally awesome. I usually dislike Eduardo being in the wrong, but it works very well here, this is a set up I can buy into. His reaction to Mark is neatly tied into his own hangups. For all his apparent open-ness, he does have these serious issues. But then, he's till Wardo, he's still utterly in love with Mar, and bouncy and adorable. "Eduardo’s eyes get wide, and then he’s beaming, the only person in the world who could respond to a sexual proposition like you’ve offered him a basket of kittens and rainbows and candy."

Neal/Peter/Elizabeth
Love it, the UST, the pervasive sense of longing. I like the dynamics of the threesome: Neal getting in over his head, Peter wanting but being restrained by his ethics, Peter and El as a team, El being careful and in control of the situation. Definitely the most believable OT3 set up I've read.

SHERLOCK

John/Lestrade [au]
Awesome AU with John as Sherlock and Mycroft's nanny. The first part is sort of a retelling of Hound of the Baskervilles. Love the characterisation of EVERYBODY. Deft and funny. Convincing AU. Also, Lestrade and John have in-universe blogs! Mixed media style awesome. except maybe I should call it meta awesome? viral marketing awesome except for fic? IDEK. Awesome.

on slash
"Slash was the only genre of literature I had ever found that followed the characters into bed and back out of it; that investigated and demonstrated how the people they were outside of bed were connected to the people they were in bed; that modeled how to be with someone in everyday life, go to bed with them, and then wake up next to them and continue everyday life with them."
