A Fashionable Profit by mad_gaters
"Why the hell didn't you tell me they were taking your picture in nothing but a pair of Daisy Dukes?"

aka

John makes Dean get a job modeling for Calvin Klein.

__

For a self-proclaimed crack!fic, this made me feel a surprising amount. I mean, it was undoubtedly funny (Dean's snarky attitude and Sam's sass and John's little quips were perfect), but there were certain aspects that were quietly heartbreaking. The fact that John made Dean do something he was clearly uncomfortable with just to earn them cash (That's your job John not Dean's.) pissed me off but I could completely see his character doing something like that. And Sam! Oh, Sam. I just wanted to squish him for how much lip he gave John and how he kept standing up for Dean. It's a testament to how well-written this is that, despite being a totally humorous fic, it was able to give me so many Dean feels.

Vocabulary by innie
Given a week to define himself, Sam watches Dean.

__

Another fic by innie, as I can't seem to stop adoring them. This one, however, I hold above all the rest (even the Dean/Cassie one, which I worship). Sam is just great in here (as is Dean, of course, but that's a given). I absolutely love the portrayal of the brothers' relationship, and the way Sam struggles to define himself through his family. Everything about this story is amazing, especially the conclusion Sam comes to. It's not long so there's no excuse not to go read it.

The White Whale by innie
Shawn has a new toy. Gus is not amused.

__

This is the only Psych fic I've ever read and liked. Admittedly, I haven't read very many, but the few I have usually fail to capture the spirit of the show. But this story manages to do that so perfectly that it gave me hope that others could do so, too. Shawn's character in here is wonderfully true to the show. I highly recommend this author's works because they're great, a fact I'm even more convinced of after this hilarious story. It's less than 2K words, but it leaves a lasting impression.

Lacuna by innie
Dean and Cassie, the first time around.

__

I'm surprised I decided to read this story as I'm not a big fan of second-person POV, but I'm so glad I set aside that aversion and read this amazing piece. The author weaves together a story so rich in emotion and beautiful descriptions (seriously, her description of Dean through Cassie's eyes will leave you breathless) that you become so immersed in their world, made even more poignant by the second-person POV I'd originally doubted. Towards the end, even my indifference to Cassie had changed, and I fell for Dean all over again. Since reading this story, I keep a lookout for Dean/Cassie fics; unfortunately, I have yet to find any nearly as good.

Crush by stereobone
All Bond has to do is look at his wrists and he knows—he could break Q in half.

__

I haven't read many Skyfall fics, so this is the first one I'm in a position to rec, but it's a great one to start off with. Q and Bond is a pairing that makes a surprising amount of sense when you think about it; this story handles their dynamic so very well that even if you aren't convinced of this fact, you will be after having read it. Plus, it's really, really hot for something that has little sexual scenes.

In Your Frail Gesture Are Things Which Enclose Me by an ardent rain
Cas gets the god juice sucked out of him and, apart from that pesky little human now problem, looks like he's got a bright future ahead of him. But wandering away from the Winchesters leaves him without support and he finds himself floundering. He makes his way to the city of angels and falls into a careless, dissolute stupor - echoes of a collapsed future in every pill he pops. He turns to writing as a release and, realizing he's tired of being miserable, gets himself into rehab. Fast forward to a successful first novel, and a person from his past that he'd never thought he would see again...

__

This story is so, so good! I just love how Dean's hurt over what Cas did wasn't so easily dismissed, as it tends to be in most stories after season 6. I think Dean's reaction was very in-character, and I also love how he comes around to eventually forgive Cas and realizes that the reason he's so hurt is because Cas is more than just a friend. I'm also in love with the way now-human Cas handles being out in the world by himself for the first time. Go read this beautiful story right now; it's one of my favorite Supernatural fics out there.

A Little Touch Of Harry In The Night by Amanuensis
A Potterverse take on Shakespeare's Henry V with an AU Harry who's not really as nice as we remember him. Bit of a bastard, actually. That's okay; I got to write more sex that way. Shakespeare purists will just freak.

__

Be warned, this is not for the faint of heart--the sex is very graphic and the morality of it dubious. Harry is a bit of a bastard, in the author's own words (though I liked him, but I'm a sucker for the bad boys so that doesn't count). It's a take on Shakespeare's Henry V. Pairings include brief Harry/Colin, Harry/Ron/Hermione, Harry/Severus, Harry/Draco; and an implied long-term one between Harry/Severus and Harry/Draco. However, I enjoyed it and you should give it a chance, too. Normally, I wouldn't read something with Harry and Hermione even rubbing up against each other (or Harry and Colin, for that matter), but it turned out okay; plus, the sex was really, really hot.

Gryffindor Seduction 101 by jennavere
Charming, crafty Slytherin Blaise Zabini has a dating policy: he only dates Gryffindors. Now he's plotting to seduce Gryffindor Extraordinaire Harry Potter, and Draco Malfoy is NOT happy.

__

Very engaging and humorous. There's just a very tiny bit of Harry/Blaise, though it's a little one-sided...kinda. You'll understand if you read it, and it's totally worth it. I like the way this author writes Harry/Draco, a pairing I usually do not like.

The Unexpected Life by nolagal
It's been a rough year since the war's end and Harry and George are learning to deal with the aftermath as best they can.

__

Very potent, and a good read. It's probably one of the only Harry/George fics I've read that I've liked. I actually like the pairing, but most authors ruin it by making it seem as though George and Fred aren't separate entities. Even though this fic is post-DH, it's made clear that George is not Fred (and vice versa).

Thirty-Five Owls by Letterblade
"Go teach your children, eat your candy, preen your bird and bury me. But we were brilliant together, Albus, and not even you can change history."

(being a correspondence between Albus P.W.B. Dumbledore, Grand Sorcerer, etc., and the prisoner Gellert Grindelwald, of some decades in length)

__

Breathtaking, sophisticated, delicious, and, ultimately, heart-wrenching. It did a wonderful job of making me forget this actually didn't happen in the books. My love for this beautiful story cannot be expressed in words. READ. IT. NOW.

Lost chances by redsnake05
Dusty offices, grey skies and outside pressures. Ignatius despairs of ever marrying Lucretia, and Antonin seeks escape from the influence of the newly-named Lord Voldemort. Where will their reluctant attraction lead them?

__

Ugh, this is just so, so good. I love the progression, and the intensity between the two characters once they get past that point; I mean, it's rather short, but it really leaves an impression. And Dolohov is just awesome. Seriously, if you don't like him as more than just a random Death Eater after reading this, I'll be surprised.

Brief Freedom by redsnake05
Sirius is ripe for adventure and rebellion. His cousin Fabian, debonair and gorgeous, shows him more than he expected. He learns that sometimes you have to do what's right, not just what's easy, and it's about making the best decision day after day.

__

I don't read a lot of rare pairings that aren't Harry-centric, but I'm really glad I stumbled upon this. I love Sirius and my fondness for Fabian Prewett became more than that after having read this. The sex is hot, but that's not all it has going for it; the characters are also well-rounded. If you're up for more rare HP pairings, this author has written quite a bit.

Perfect Situations by Jeconais
A eulogy for a Gryffindor.

__

As you can probably tell by my recs, I'm not a big reader of het stories. Not at all because I don't like them, but because there's hardly any that spark my interest enough to want to check them out. But, for some inexplicable reason, I really like Daphne Greengrass, so I wasn't going to pass this up. I'm really glad I didn't because, het or no, it's one of the best fics I've read to date. Don't take it too seriously and you'll love it, too.

The Migratory Habits of Seekers & Other Birds of Prey by Femme
One choice, one mad, desperate choice and everything I loved was gone. I'd known it would be the moment I said yes.

__

Upon starting the story, I was a little skeptical. I'm not really fond of fanfiction in first person POV, but the writing turned out to be brilliant and captivating so I trudged on. Then the plot scared me because I thought it was going to be one of those awfully angsty post-DH stories where Harry does something completely out of character (well, he kinda did), but it turned out all right—and it wasn't even that angsty. After reading the whole thing, I was in love. Really, it was absolutely amazing, amazing enough for me to recommend that others read it. Go read it now, even if you aren't a big fan of this pairing. You'll love this version of it.

One of my favorite Snarry stories. If you're new to this pairing and want to know which stories to start off with, you can't go wrong with this one. Not only is the sex hot, but the emotions are handled brilliantly, too.

There's a simplicity and charm to this story that makes it—not unique because it's been done to death—but kinda amazing. I never get tired of this, and I don't know what it is about it that I love so much (maybe it's the whole Snape and Harry in a college environment thing), but I really, really do. Eh, just go figure it out for yourself.

Practically all of Aucta Sinistra's stories are amazing, but Scratch and its sequels "The Holly and the Ivy" and "This Thing of Darkness" are my favorite. (Especially "The Holly and the Ivy;" it's particularly delicious!)

Monster story with many parts and side stories and spin-offs. I've read and highly recommend each one except The Last Battlefield, which I haven't read because there's some Snape/Ginny that I find very off-putting. But the main story is gorgeous and, if you're susceptible to that kind of thing, it'll make you weep. Seriously, so much angst.

Great story that provides a unique alternative to Tom Riddle gaining immortality. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated since 2008, and it doesn't look as though it's ever going to be finished. The 17 chapters that are up are worth the read, though.
