Best Wrestling Fic_____
Tainted Love
By: Mandy
Category: Slash
Characters: Raven, Stevie Richards

The Returning Series
By: Orchid
Category: Slash
Characters: Raven, Stevie Richards
Comments: This one is simply guaranteed to make you thud. Very, very hard.


Schisim
By: Tamony and Katja
Category: Slash, Het, Gen
Characters: Many!
Comments: Yes, I'm reccing a whole site, mostly because I can't decide between about seven different fics *chuckles*. Read the Gen section; it's one of the best around.


Songs Of Stevie
By: Cheshyre
Category: Het
Characters: Stevie, OC, Hardys
Comments: I couldn't not recc this one, as it takes me far, far back, to a time when children danced more ;-).

Figure It Out
By: Mynx
Category: Slash
Characters: Booker T, Dustin
Comments:I adore Dustin fics, and when folks strip him of the makeup, the glitter and the pretense, I love it even more. Great, sensitive exploration that could even almost work, if it took place IRL.


Firefly
By: Meg
Category: Het
Characters: Nidia, Raven
Comments: Proof that The Machine is golden, but rather more indicative of the incredible talents posessed by Meg. She's a firecely talented writer, and every little piece you get makes you wonder when more will be comming.

Long Way From Yesterday
By: Tamony
Category: Gen
Characters: Stevie Richards, Francine
Comments: For anyone who's an old-school Stevie/Francine 'shipper like myself, this is like candy for the brain. I had the damndest time choosing between this and her Raven/Daffney friendfic, which is beautifully compelling for entirely opposite reasons. The Source of Inspiration
By: Christina Ortega
Category: Slash/Bi
Characters: Chris Benoit, Nancy Sullivan-Benoit, Eddie Gurerro
Comments: It's so rare that I get to read wrestleslash that feels realistic enough to have taken place outside of the rhelm of fiction. This is it, and Christina is a marvel at it.

Turn
By: Tamony
Category: Gen
Characters: Raven, Daffney
Comments: Tammony captures ScottSpeak (which is wholly different from Ravenspeak, by the by) perfectly here. One of my favorite het pairings. I didn't recc it last time, and this time I must!

A Dead Heart's Desire
By: Pretty Duckie in Pink
Category: Het
Characters: Raven, Daffney

Broken Tin Soldiers
By: Alicia Ann
Category: Gen
Characters: Victoria, Christian
Comments: This will make you cry. Period. By: crimson_coin
Category: Het
Characters: Trish Stratus, Chris Jericho mainly.
Comments: Part of CC's Jericho/Trish saga, the other parts being "Unstoppable" and "Endless Love". Wild plot twists, soapy action and pet names await you, but it's worth digging into if you have 'shipper tendancies.

Best Laverne and Shirley Fic_____


Mythos
By: Shotzette
Category: Het/Drama
Characters: Past-Canon AU; uses Frank and Josephine mostly
Comments: This is a true "labor of love" fic; Shotzette felt that no one else would read this consuming back-canon piece concearing a alternate portrait of Laverne's mom. The result is intensely effecting.


Couplets
By: Cheshyre
Category: Het
Characters: Laverne/Lenny
Comments: Just because Chesh wrote it for my birthday doesn't mean it doesn't have mass appeal. An impactful but short piece.


We Gather Together

Lost Till We Are Found
By: Shotzette
Category: Het
Characters: Laverne, Lenny, Many OCS, Shirley, Squiggy

By: Ashley
Category: Het
Characters: Laverne, Lenny, Frank DeFazio
Comments: Ashley's best piece, and one of the most romantic and swoony L/L fics ever. yes, it's a songfic. You'll get over, no?


The One That Got Away
By: Cheshyre
Category: Het
Characters: Squiggy, OC
Comments: Proof that not all OCs are evil beings, and further proof that Cheshyre has a future in this fandom. I once created a piece of fanart reading, "My Fandom Holds Squiggy Down!" pattently true. Cheshyre breaks the mold.


...Those That Can...
By: Shotzette
Category: Het
Characters: Lenny, Laverne

A Crash Course in Love

Full Life Wo Sagashite
By:
Category: Gen
Characters: The Simpsons Cast

Three Of Us

Characters: Leela/Fry
Comments: Where the heck is more of this fic?! Deep, self-deprecatating Fry stuff.


An Eye For An Eye
By: Oliver
Category: Het
Characters: Leela/Fy

Characters: The Futurama Cast
Comments: Another one of those "well, where's more?!" pieces. I'm a Zoidy enthusiast, can you tell?


Leela's Return
By: Silverwolf
Category: Het
Characters: Most of the cast.

Amy's Wedding
By: Kryten
Fandom: Futurama
Category: Het
Characters: The entire cast

The Ouvre of Enhaus
By: Enhaus
Category: Drama/Comedy
Characters: Main Cast, Feela 'centric, some Fry/Morgan
Comments: Enhaus brings a fresh perspective to Frama fics, and he's a promising, rising talent. While Fry and Leela are rarely happy in his fics, thier journey is well-articulated. Not for the 'shippiest of 'shippers.

Full Circle
By: Mel Miller

Fandom: Baby Sitter's Club
Characters: Various
Comments: This is the sort of thing that's only funny if you're aware of the sudden explosion of BSC femmeslash, Dying-Young-esque deathbed reunions and teen-pregnancy hootfests in the fandom. In any case, it's hysterical, though it could use a bit more character-related color.

By: WeyrdChic
Category: Mon.
Fandom: Lilo And Stitch
Characters: Jumba/Pleakley
Comments: When I started reccing fic, I vowed that it would either be challenging to the reader, appealing enough for me to share, or such a curio that the world must read it, in order to learn. This is all three.

The fanfiction of Yorickjones
By: yorickjones
Category: various
Fandom: Various
Characters: Various
Comments: Specializing in "relisim" - transplanting character from fameous literature into real-world versions of their universes - yorickjones gets my highest reccomendation. Beautifully written and truly unique, they're well worth reading. Of particular worth are "Practically Perfect," which envisions Jane Banks of "Mary Poppins" as a nurse in World War II, and "Not Fade Away" - an obituary for The Fonz.


The Shower
By: Valtiel
Category: humor
Fandom: King of The Hill
Characters: Main Cast
Comments: Intelligent KOTH porn is rare. Incredibly rare. This was in-character, and it's a shame to see it abandoned.

By: redhandedjill
Category: Romance
Fandom: Peter Pan
Characters: The Darling Parents
Comments: A lot of the Peter Pan fic I've read over the past few years? Scared me. Scared me big time. This is something unique - a romance that covers the parent's early days. Has a certain Victorian charm to it that I'm not sure will last, 'cause it's an aff.net story.

Autumn Rain
By: Cockneysparrow
Category: Het
Fandom: Dirty Dancing
Characters: Main cast
Comments: A solid fic, which finally examines AFTER that summer. It's more likely that Johnny and Baby's romance would cool, at least a little, and this explores that option in an interesting way.

By: Lioness Black
Category: Het
Fandom: Babysitter's Club

Fear and Loathing In Baltimore
By: JDLady
Category: Het
Fandom: Cry-Baby
Characters: Main cast
Comments: Confession: Cry-Baby was my favorite movie when I was a teenager - my love of JD (that's juvenile delinquency, not Johnny Depp) pics (and John Waters) lives on. This is a great expansion on the universe - and, warning, it's wonderfully smutty.

A Cracked Polystyrene Man
By: Morosetintedglasses
Category: Slash/Het
Fandom: Mythbusters
Characters: Kari, Adam, Jamie
Comments: I've been on the fence about this fic for a long time - on one hand the writing's excellent, and Adam's POV is both sympathetic and understandable. On the other hand, cheerful dorky Kari Byron doesn't come off as a cold, manipulative kinda gal IRL. This is so richly written that I have to give it a cautious thumbs up, however.

Family Duty
By: Rhiannonhero
