Set Fire to This Card House, by zarah5
Fandom: Hawaii Five O
Pairing: Steve/Danno
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: zarah5
Author Website: Picture The Word, but most of her stuff is on her AO3 account
Why this must be read: zarah5 writes both Steve and Danno so well it's like she has them living in her brain, arguing out of her ears. She knows them inside and out, and she can throw them into any situation and have them react not only completely believeably, but without losing a moment of the snarky banter we know and love.

This fic is a fantastic example of this. Set in a world where Danny joined the CIA instead of the Jersey PD (and gets teamed up with Seal-trained Steve), it's not only an action-packed James Bond type romp through the wonderful world of esponiage, but it's heart is so intrisically Hawaii Five O you believe every word of it. Read it and love it.

So, yeah. That happened.
So, I kind of forgot this community existed. Oops! Since it has been half a decade since my last post (holy crap, btw), I figured rather than pick up where I left off, I would just post from where I'm at now in fandoms and backtrack if I have time and inclination.

Since I created this community 90% as a cheat sheet for easily found awesome fic I can read at work, and 10% sharing with the rest of the world, I think these terms are acceptable.

So, uh, yeah. Let's get started!

Home Fires Burning, by shusu
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: up to Letters From Pegasus (ep 1x17)
Author on LJ: shusu
Author Website: Red For Pleasure
Why this must be read:

I can't really say much about this fic without giving it all away, but I CAN tell you that it messes with your head in the most delightful way. Working with the idea that everything is like a dream in that everything makes sense only not really, I loved the raw emotion that finished this piece off, and left me wishing there was more to read. Check it out! ^_^

Rollin', by tzi
Fandom: Supernatural/Stargate Atlantis Xover
Pairing: Dean/McKay
Spoilers: pre-season 1 Supernatural, general first season Atlantis
Author on LJ: tzi
Author Website: Caffiend's Assylum
Why this must be read:

At first glance, there's no way these two worlds should work together, because they're just so bizarely different from each other, in a way that you couldn't really expect them to coexist in a believeable manner. tzi, however, takes both fandoms and slides them together so perfectly that you just kind of sit back, nod your head and go, 'Yeah. I could see that.'

Her characterisation is spot on, and whilst there isn't a whole lot of plot, per se, there is some very soul satisfying character depth on both parts of the boys. Plus it's way, way, WAY hot. Go read. Now.

Day Break, by giddygeek
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: general season 1
Author on LJ: giddygeek
Author Website: The Geekdom
Why this must be read:

Who could go wrong with multiple first times? *g* A variation on Stargate SG1's season 4 episode Window of Opportunity, I LOVE how giddygeek handled this storyarch. It was still the same, and yet completely different, and I have to applaud her skill because I seriously doubt I could have done the same. A wonderfully interesting, playful fic that is just adorably amusing. Go read!

And Sometimes You Get Toasters, by giddygeek
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: general season 1
Author on LJ: giddygeek
Author Website: The Geekdom
Why this must be read:

Hee! This fic was SO much fun *g* Rodney becomes an adrenaline junkie through his exposure to constant peril, and Sheppard has to figure out a way to channel the energy before his astrophysicist gets himself killed. A highly entertaining look at their often disasterous missions, as well as Sheppard and McKay's relationship, I enjoyed this fic immensely ^_^

Aftershocks, by shalott
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: Season 1, ep 10-11, The Storm/The Eye
Author on LJ: astolat
Author Website: Imitations
Why this must be read:

A little intense, this relatively short h/c fic deals with the aftermath of what happened in The Storm/The Eye, and is quite interesting. Lovely, purposeful angst, coupled with shower!sex, and slightly broken main characters makes for a good read ^_~

Call Soft Enough, by torch
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: flambeau
Author Website: The Flambeau Factory
Why this must be read:

Torch is trying to kill us all with her unbelievable porn. Seriously, she will be the death of us yet. This fic is nothing more than a pwp, but it still manages to make time stand still. I have no idea how she does that, but I'd love to learn.

Cred, by Resonant
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: general season 1, nothing specific
Author on LJ: resonant8
Author Website: in medias Res
Why this must be read:

Sheppard is determined to find out what it takes to get Rodney's full attention for more than two seconds. Although this fic is short, it's incredibly entertaining, rather amusing and pretty sexy ^_~

Advantage, by Resonant
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: general season 1
Author on LJ: resonant8
Author Website: in medias Res
Why this must be read:

Damn, this fic is good. Normally I balk at slave!fic, or pretty much any BDSM stuff, but I loved this beyond reason. Aliens have managed to infect Sheppard with a pseudo-virus that makes him believe that he's Rodney's personal slave. Oh yeah, already you're seeing the potential *g* Thing is, this fic isn't about dominance, it's about equality, which I think is a fantastic angle to take with a plot like this. Funny, adorable, sexy, and emotionally angsty, with fic is definately worth a read.

About A Lamp, by Torch
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: general season 1
Author on LJ: flambeau
Author Website: The Flambeau Factory
Why this must be read:

Hehehe imagine if your wish came true, and you didn't even know it? This fic is SO good, I love the different format, and the ideas that torch has are just so interesting. I could totally see most of this happening, and the rest SHOULD happen, damnit! *g* She writes the characters fantastically, the story is great, the fic is funny, and the sex is hot. What more can I say? Except go read! :D

A Rush of Blood to the Head, by dirty diana
Fandom: Popslash
Pairing: Chris/Lance
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: dirty_diana
Author Website: Shocking Pink
Why this must be read:

I don't know why I like this piece, but I do. Established relationship, Lance breaks up with Chris and takes the couch. It's not very long, but the dialogue is great, and the undertone of the whole thing is so well done without being overly subtle so you miss it, or so blatantly obvious you feel patronised. Short, funny and painful. Great read ^_^

Matter and Antimatter, by Synchronik
Fandom: Popslash
Pairing: Lance/Justin
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: synchronik
Author Website: Joe's Eats and Christian Bookshop
Why this must be read:

I first read this fic aaages ago, when I first got into popslash, and even though it's not a ship I really follow all that closely, I keep coming back to these two stories again and again. I LOVE Synchronik's Lance, and her Justin is such a brat, yet so endearing you can't help but like him anyway - which is kind of how I see him in rl *g* Anyway! The fics are companion pieces, happening simultaneously, and it's just so well done, so well written and well executed, I love it lots :D

A Better Fate, by chelle
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Spoilers: general season one
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: unknown
Why this must be read:

This fic starts out as kind of domestic, but piece by small piece we are shown something that lurks beneath the surface, memories of a recent mission gone horribly wrong. It's kind of long, and a little annoying how often the author repeats the character's names, but this fic isn't bad, with a style that hooks you in and keeps you reading. Plus when the sex happens, it happens a LOT, which is always nice. An interesting story diluted with fluff and sex; there are worse things in the world *g* Worth checking out, at least.

Bored, by Tink
Fandom: Popslash
Pairing: mild Chris/Joey
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: apetslife
Author Website: Bury Me Deep
Why this must be read:

It's short, but man I love it. It's Chris-centric, set in the middle of a tour, and boredom leads to some interesting realisations. The slash is there if you squint, but this fic isn't really long enough to develop anything deep and significant. A nice little read, wonderfully self-contained. Give it a go ^_^

True Romance, by Rhys
Fandom: Popslash
Pairing: Chris/Joey
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: rhyssj
Author Website: Experiment V
Why this must be read:

Because it's Rhys, you automatically know it's going to be awesome (let's face it - a large number of my popslash recs are gonna be by her), but this fic is seriously fantastic. It's fun and hysterical, angsty and warm and loving and just plain GOOD. *nods* Chris has devised a plan, and it is completely foolproof. Or at least dimwit resistant *g*

Slight warning for length.

True Romance

Werewolves and Boybands Mate For Life, by Merry
Fandom: Popslash
Pairing: Chris/JC
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: merryish
Author Website: Any Road
Why this must be read:

This is perhaps just about my favourite Chris/JC fic of ALL TIME. It's so funny and adorable, and the guys are just so clueless and completely themselves, and I just love it to pieces. This is the first Merry fic I ever read, and damn was it a good introduction to her stuff. Read it and love it people, it's just that good. ^_^

Twenty-Three, by synecdochick
Fandom: Popslash
Pairing: Lance/JC
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: synecdochick
Author Website: Venus in furs
Why this must be read:

Established relationship. A smidgen long, this fic is simply a look at the lives of our pretty popstars during a single twenty-three hour period. I really like the way this is written, and even though I tend to stay away from established relation fics (for boringness and uber fluff fear), I quite enjoyed this one. Highly recommended ^_^

The Play's the Thing, by Chester
Fandom: Popslash
Pairing: Lance/JC
Spoilers: none
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: unknown
Why this must be read:

High school AU, this is nothing but pure, unadultered fluff *g* Nothing really substantial, but it gives me nice warm fuzzies every time I read it, so I thought I'd toss the rec out there in case other people feel the same way. Plus, drama students *g*
