Person of Interest: Hamartia (the hero's fatal flaw) by astolat
Summary: "We're not looking to make friends, Harold," John said. "We want our neighbors to classify us and then avoid us. Being the scandalous gay couple down the street is a good option."
Reccer's Notes: The first fic that came to my mind for this round, this is an absolute delight of a fic in which John and Harold go on the run with a slightly older Leila (the toddler they canonicaly accidentaly aquired to protect her in that one episode) and it is a treasure of a forced curtain!fic and chosen familly under pressure and all the growing intimacy of pretending to be a couple for a case and all the emotional upheavals and self-sacrifce one can expect from John and Harold in such a situation. And plot of course, because this is Astolat.

An old favorite.

Person of Interest: Hamartia (the hero's fatal flaw) by astolat

Reccer's Notes: Look, I have a clear weakness for undercover in suburbia, it's true. This is a slow burn action-adventure with with a two year old and it's great.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: Pine Lake Oasis by infiniteeight
Summary: When SHIELD gets intel that an arms dealer might soon be receiving Chitauri technology, Fury sends Clint and Coulson undercover to establish surveillance, ingratiate themselves with the arms dealer and his right hand man, and possibly intercept the sale. The catch? The arms dealer and his lieutenant are apparently posing as a couple, which means the best way for Clint and Coulson to get close is to pose as a couple, too. The longer the op goes on, the more Clint wonders which relationship is more real.
Reccer's Notes: The only way they can defeat those pesky arms dealers is by being as married as possible. Luckily, Phil and Clint are up for the challenge. Adorable domestic missionfic.

MCU/Agent Carter: Pistol Packin' Mama by Sholio
Summary: "Due to your deplorable habit of showing up at all hours of the day and night, any useful Leviathan-related gossip from the neighbors has been replaced by speculation that 'Marge' is cheating on poor 'Dan' with a blond scoundrel -- Jack, if you don't stop laughing, I will hit you with my shoe." (Or: Peggy and Daniel go undercover as a married couple in the suburbs.)
Reccer's Notes: Really fun undercover as a couple fic, plus Jack who just can't seem to stay away. Lots of in-character banter, and the danger that seems to follow Peggy everywhere.

Arrow: What Happens in Vegas... by redtoes
Summary: Oliver and Felicity wake up married in Las Vegas. But it's not what you think... It's memory loss and fake relationships and diamond heists and dealing with inquisitive journalists. Smut barely enters into it at all.
Reccer's Notes: After an unplanned encounter with Vertigo, the billionaire vigilante and the IT girl wake up in Las Vegas with wedding rings on. But that's just the beginning of the chaos. This is an engaging (ha!), fun romp of an accidental marriage story, from the early days when the door was still open to imagine the Oliver/Felicity pairing as one of light-hearted, tropey romance.

The Sentinel: It's In the Hips by Alyjude
Summary: Post-series, Blair has just graduated from the police academy when Simon comes to the Major Crimes group with an unusual situation. One of the most popular resorts outside of Cascade has had an odd string of accidents. There's a real danger that it might go under as a result.

Joan, Simon's ex-wife, is good friends with one of the owners. With no help coming from the local authorities, Joan asks Simon to investigate. So, the whole MC gang ends up going undercover in one way or another. Jim is head of security and Blair is the dance instructor (think Dirty Dancing). In a twist on the "undercover as a couple" theme, Simon ends up with a cop from Burglary pretending to be husband and wife.
Reccer's Notes: Suspend your disbelief and just enjoy. Aly wrote a sequel called One is a Lonely Number.

Man from UNCLE: The Honey Trap by Mamalazzer
Summary: "So congratulations, Peril," Napoleon drawled, looking so amused that he could see it was literally setting Illya's teeth on edge. "You have the supreme good fortune of getting to kiss me senseless. Now be a good sport and put your hands on my backside, would you? I'm beginning to feel neglected."

In which the boys have to go undercover as a couple, with Napoleon having a whale of a time while Illya isn't sure whether to knock Napoleon's teeth out or kiss him.
Reccer's Notes:
"'Clandestine lovers'?" Gaby repeated Waverly's words, looking like Christmas had come early. She then pointed between Napoleon and Illya with a positively impish look on her face, her eyes sparkling. "These two? They'll kill each other in a day."

"Well, that's rude," Napoleon countered, easing to his feet and smoothly sidestepping the rather sorry-looking telephone Illya had thrown to the floor to pour himself a drink. The phone whirred sadly in response. "I'd at least give us two."

Illya's left eye twitched so dangerously at this that it looked likely to pop out of his head at any given moment.

In a shocking twist, things don't go as planned. :D

Lewis: His Awkward Sod by Sarren
Summary: Lewis and Hathaway pretend to be a couple to catch a killer.
Reccer's Notes:
"Well, he's a good catch."

Lewis stares at her, astounded. "I don't want to catch him! I'm not… that way. Gay."

"I didn't say you were. It's just; you two seem to have something special, and in this day and age sexuality's more… fluid, isn't it."

"My sexuality is not fluid or anything else, thank you," he says firmly.

Famous last words.

The Sentinel: Sex, Lies and... by Ximeria
Summary: Prominent citizens, including William Ellison, are being blackmailed and the Mayor wants it stopped. The plan was for Jim to go undercover with Megan (since she knows about his senses) and do some covert investigating.

But Megan has come down with the flu. The new plan? Have Blair pose as Jim's boy toy. Not only are they likely to overhear something that could break the case, but they might even become the blackmailer's latest target.
Reccer's Notes: Written for a TS ficathon challenge, the plot is as thin as tissue paper, but it's a fun read. Enjoy.

NCIS: Backfired
Summary: When two agents wake up in bed together with no memory of how they got there, it starts them on a path to where they never thought they'd go.
Reccer's Notes: I love Emerald’s stories -- often long, always in character (with a touch of rose-colored glasses view), her stories make great use of canon information and extrapolate from there. They’re complex, detailed, and keep up the tension and interest until the end. This story is one of my favorite (to be honest, out of several with that opinion) of her NCIS stories. I don’t see Gibbs/McGee in the show, but Emerald sure makes me believe it could happen just this way.

Ignore the ‘WIP’ note at the beginning. The story is complete. I hope you enjoy it.
