Another "Must-Read" pack of fics.

I present you with even more fics that I love and you should too. And I'm still covering my favs *g*

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
Second Chance by denied_heaven (Spike/Xander)
Fic written for fall_for_sx. And while putting a summary would give away too much, I can tell you that this fic starts with a strong kick and than keeps you tied to the chair all the way to the epilogue. It's beautiful and well written. Deserves all your attention.

Bent Justice by toobusy2write (Spike/Angel, Wes/Gunn, other minor pairings)
Yet another AU. I wouldn't be myself if I didn't rec you at least one AU *g*. It's a Prison AU with Spike being an undercover operative trying to bust a drug dealing circle and Angel as one of the convicts. Sparks flies and so is the UST. Go. Read.

Black Tie Optional by Katie (Wes/Gunn)
Gunn. Wes. Changingroom. Formal wear. Pretty.

Body of Evidence by RealMitzvah (Wes/Gunn)
Wesley's skin documents his relationship with Gunn. And its a hell of a story if you ask me.

Closets by tesla321 (Xander/Larry)
"I'm not---I'm not gay," Xander stammered. "I'm---m-m-making out in closets with Cordelia Chase!"
"Closets being the word," Larry said, kindly, and picked up his dopp bag.

Stay A Spell, Hands Clean, Hands-On DIY Project for Beginners by RealMitzvah (Giles/Xander)
Willow's magical mistake is Giles' Xandery gain. Really worth reading.

'Ho Lord by Andrewsee (Giles/Xander)
Giles needs a date. This is the hellmouth, it could get messy.

Weakness Defined by deani_bean (Cameron/Teal’c, Daniel/Teal’c)
General Landry has figured out Cameron's kryptonite.

Gratitude by helenish (Ronon/Zelenka)
Ronon saves Zelenka. Zelenka is grateful. And yet it all stays PG13. Cuteness warning.

Dendrophilia by dracostella (Parrish/Lorne)
Lorne almost stepped on Parrish who was lying on his back amidst all the tree roots. Fluff.

Dandelion by thesh_t (Parrish/Lorne)
based on the first of the pics in the following link. no warnings or spoilers needed, very short hope you like. http://community.livejournal.com/sga_post_secret/7981.html#cutid1

Not Her Way by tielan (Teyla/Lorne)
Teyla is accustomed to the interest of men. Sometimes she is interested in return, although it is not her way to show it.Once again. Tell her, I sent you.

This rec post? Totally AU. There were some AUs in my previous post. This time? There's even more.
I have a thing for AUs... And for WIPs.... Sorry.
Here are my All-Time Favs

StarGate SG-1
The Bus Trip by Nessessitie (Jack/Daniel)

Camera Obscura by Gateroller (Jack/Daniel)
Jack is a famous photographer, Daniel is a university professor.

Mystic Minnesota by Mystic (Jack/Daniel)
Charlie survives the accidental shooting, but suffers from brain-damage. Jack moves to his cabin and becomes a coach in a high school after Sara divorces him. Daniel, having no money and no prospects, become the school's language teacher

The Pirate And The Scholar by Rachel (Jack/Daniel)
And it's exactly what it says.

StarGate Atlantis
The Wrong Kind of Guy by tielan (Weir/Ronon)
When Ronon Dex arrives at Shermer High, Elizabeth Weir doesn't initially notice him. But when Ronon helps her out of a tight situation, Elizabeth finds herself becoming friends with this guy who isn't her kind of guy at all! Once again. Please tell her I send you and she should write another epic AU

The Boondock Saints
Home by zebraljb (Connor/Murphy)
Connor and Murph were split after birth and met again at University. They didn't know they were brothers. Beautiful. Perfect and worth reading.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Blood Wings by frk_werewolf (Spike/Xander)
WIP, Posted regularly on Tuesdays.

Those are the must read in my opinion:

Lord of the Rings
I don't read much of LotR fics. And if I do Boromir/Eomer are certainly not my first pick. Nonetheless Riderless by Stewardess is one of the best fics I've read. Adult Only.

I wouldn't be myself if I didn't recced Centaurs!AU. And yes. I know how it sounds, but believe me; it's one of the best series ever. Myths&Revelations are NCIS!AU and contain Gibbs/DiNozzo. It kicks off when Tony finds out that Gibbs isn't in fact human. And as much as it really sounds cheesy, crimsonquills (the author) managed to maike it believable and she stayed true to the characterisation we get on the show.
And there is a spin-off *g* (The New York Connection - CSI:NY/Numb3rs; also available in the link)

Five Stages, NCIS gen story, can be find (surprisingly) at fanfiction.net. But unlike majority of stories posted there, this one is actually good. It deals with post-Twilight reactions of all members of the team.

80% by pixie_on_acid is a wonderful characterisation of Tony DiNozzo. It's not long, but definatelly worth reading.

Stargate SG-1/Angel/The West Wing/House/NCIS/Miracles
How To Manage Your Alpha Male by ELG is a "slashy gen crossover silliness". Imagine all the beta males in an AA meeting room, debating on how to best handle their alfa males. I'm afraid it is a crack. But, damn, it's a good one.

Stargate Atlantis
To Serve a Queen by tielan is what I call a hardcore AU. Set in a verso of Anne Bishop 'Black Jewels' trilogy with Weir as a queen of Atlantis and Ronon as an enslaved Prince. Why yes, it is Ronon/Weir. But it is well written and you won't be able to stop until you read it all.
And on a personal note, please make sure you inform tielan that I sent you. I'm hoping for yet another epic AU *g*

First entry :)

First of all, hello. Welcome to Cala and Noelia's Recs Journal.
You see, we read a lot. Mostly fanfiction, as it happens. And quite often we feel like sharing our favourite fics.
No, I lied. Not sharing. More like making everyone else read and squee with us.
So, feel free to join and stay with us, we will try to offer you as wide selection as possible. Multifandom, crossover, slash, het and gen, comedy and angst, porn and fluff.
Let's start this.


Let me start by reccing Library Science
I've recced it so many times that I have no more words. What you need to know it's that it's Fred/Giles and it's absolutely bloody fantastic. It's beatifully written, with a spot-on characterisation... how often do you read a fic where every word falls into place with a perfect click and even the structure is true to characters? This is one of the fics I could read thousands of times and still fall in love with every line. Wait, not 'one of the fics'. This is 'the' fic.

Stargate Atlantis

Seven Ways To Abandon Your Life, Without Even Trying
A gen fic that is both funny and sweet and amazing and beautiful and oh, so sad. You feel a distinct, clear voice of each character, and that's a powerful writing.

Coming Soon to a Galaxy Near You!
Starbucks in Pegasus. This is crack, boys and girls, but it's a wonderful crack, and as addictive as coffee.

Stargate SG-1

Jack and Daniel. If you squint, maybe a pre-slash. A series of moments of their friendship, the few in-betweens, written so lovely and so skillfully... This fic shows exactly what I love about Jack&Daniel.


Daniel drabble
It's only a drabble, but terribly worth reading. It's brilliant and witty and oh, so, so funny.


Merry Hogswatch to All (And to All a Good Night)
Angua/Cheery Hogswatch tale. If Terry Pratchett wrote femmeslash, this would be it. Wonderful character voices, and Terry's humour shining through.

Mostly Human
Susan and Vetinari, and the question of time(Time?). Written in amazing way, and so true to the of the most complicated discworld characters...

In A Name
Vetinari and Vimes. From the very firsts Watch books their game and their war, their constant pushing and playing each other is what makes the Night Watch series my favourite from all Pratchett novels. In one of the books the Patrician remarks that he created Vimes in a way. 'Night Watch' put another spin on the characters - in some way, we feel, Vimes helped shape Vetinari. This story spins it around in a truly marvelous way.

Harry Potter

Nine Adulteries
Snape/Harry, NC-17. S/H always was dirty to me, but always was fascinating. But this story... it's so powerful, intense, so dark and beautiful, and disturbing and wonderful... this is a fic that stays with you.
