Rectober 2015: Day 5 - Fics that Made Me Ship Those Ships

Here is a list of 15 fics (for 10 fandoms) that I remember made me ship some pairings I did not expect to ship. I usually don't remember those, mostly because I read a lot of fics, but I decided to try. I'm actually 100% sure of 6 fics - and those were definitely the first ones, but the rest was definitely among the first ones.
Some of these are old, some new, some of those pairing I didn't expect to get into,

Also, look at the beautiful icon made for me by the amazing tardis_mafia!



Recs Ships





DRAGON AGE


1. Title: Cuddledemon!Cole
Author: Taimat
Pairing(s) Cremisius "Krem" Aclassi/Cole, Male Lavellan/Dorian Pavus, Cremisius "Krem" Aclassi & Iron Bull, the Bull's Chargers, Varric Tethras, Sera, Cassandra Pentaghast, Solas
Rating: Explicit/NC-17
Word Count: 21,373
Warnings: -
Summary: Cole discovers he loves hugs, and solicits them/gives them to everyone; party members, NPCs, the Inquisitor, random passersby.

Why I loved it: This is honestly one of my favourite Dragon Age fics EVER. I love how everyone is written, Krem and Bull are badass, COle is just so sweet and wonderful, I love all the friendships... and thanks to this fic I deiscovered the adorableness that can be Krem/Cole.

2. Title: Two Left Feet
Author: annundriel
Pairing(s) Cremisius "Krem" Aclassi/Lace Harding, Iron Bull
Rating: General Audiences
Word Count: 962
Warnings: -
Summary: Krem signs up for dance lessons.

Why I loved it: This is one of the sweetest, wonderful fics ever. Krem/Lace is one of the sweetest ships, too. It's beautiful!



DUE SOUTH


3. Title: An Officer and a Gentleman
Author: Laura Kaye (laurakaye)
Pairing(s) Harding Welsh/Francesca Vecchio, Benton Fraser/Ray Kowalski, Ray Vecchio/Stella (mentioned), Ma Vecchio, Maria Vecchio, Tony Vecchio
Rating: General Audiences
Word Count: 4,057
Warnings: -
Summary: An Officer and a Gentleman

Why I loved it: I love this fic so very much! Frannie is a good cop, Welsh is a gentleman, I love their conversations and I just like the development of their relationship. Frannie should be treated well and she deserves happiness! Also, Ma Vecchio inviting Welsh for dinner to meet the family in an unofficial setting XD



EUREKA


4. Title: Coming Home
Author: Pixie_Child
Pairing(s) Allison Blake/Jo Lupo, (Nathan Stark & Jack Carter mentioned)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 804
Warnings: -
Summary: Jo's a girl with a gun; well, a lot of guns.

Why I loved it: I admit, I found this one rather recently (comparing to some other fics, even if it was written earlier), but since then I actually ended up enjoying this pairing a lot. It would be cool if more people were writing it.



THE FLASH


5. Title: Leonard Snart and the fact that Barry Allen has been ignoring him and when he's ignored he acts like a child who can't get that new toy that just came out.
Author: flashlegends
Pairing(s) Leonard Snart/Barry Allen, Mick Rory, Hartley Rathaway, James Jesse
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 1,284
Warnings: -
Summary: Barry ignores Len. He doesn't like it.

Why I loved it: This is the fic that made me ship Mick/Hartley, which was pretty much unexpected. Also, Leonard and Mick discuss the fact that Barry ignores Leonard, and it's hilarious XD

6. Title: Tied Up
Author: kipsi
Pairing(s) Leonard Snart/Barry Allen (pre-relationship), Lisa Snart, Mick Rory, Cisco Ramon, Caitlin Snow
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 4,131
Warnings: -
Summary: It had been Cisco's idea when Barry had told him and Caitlin that they would be working with Captain Cold, for the last time. Being suspicious of the man who had betrayed them already once was only reasonable, but this? This was a nightmare.

Why I loved it: Len and Barry, thanks to the circumstances, have to learn how to work together. While other people might tease them. Also, Len is kind of protective. It's a fun fic to read, and definitely one of the first Len/Barry fics I've read - though I've read so many of them by now that I don't remember if it was exactly the first one. But I still adore it.

7. Title: quick thinking
Author: ElasticElla
Pairing(s) Iris West/Felicity Smoak
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 222
Warnings: -
Summary: “They’re coming back!” Iris whispers, glaring at her tablet’s footage.

Why I loved it: This one is short, but I love the idea of Iris and Felicity actually working together. It was one of the earliest Iris/Felicity fics I actually liked.



GRIMM


8. Title: there are different ways of getting there (but we’re about to crash)
Author: ornategrip
Pairing(s) Monroe/Nick Burckhardt, Barry Rabe/Roddy Geiger, Hank Griffin/Drew Wu, Marie Kessler, Angelina Lasser
Rating: Explicit/NC-17
Word Count: 33,088
Warnings: -
Summary: Mall AU. Monroe works at Mad Marvin's Music while pining for the cute clerk of Cool Threads.

Why I loved it: This fic made me ship Barry/Roddy like crazy. And now Barry/Roddy is my Grimm OTP. I love Nick and Monroe and the development of their relationship, too, and Hank and Wu are pretty much badass (and awesome friends to Nick). I like how protective Marie is and I just enjoy the general plotline of the fic.
Monroe is still a Blutbaden and Nick wants to be a cop, he learns about being a Grim - it's really nice.



HOW T GET AWAY WITH MURDER


9. Title: Ritual Madness
Author: clio_jlh
Pairing(s) Laurel Castillo/Michaela Pratt, Connor Walsh/Oliver Hampton, Wes Gibbins, Rebecca Sutter
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 2,511
Warnings: -
Summary: Michaela tries to keep Laurel from attending Connor's New Year's Eve party, because she doesn't need everyone to bear witness to her not getting a kiss at midnight. But she is far from successful at the keeping Laurel away part. The kiss at midnight part, however, is another story.

Why I loved it: While I wasn't convinced at first, I usually like screentime Laurel and Michaela have together, so I was very glad to find this fic. It's nice. And Connor/Oliver is always a bonus.



CRAIG!BOND FILMS


10. Title: With Your Hand In My Hand We'll Still Stand
Author: torakowalski
Pairing(s) Bill Tanner/Q, James Bond, Gareth Mallory
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 5,717
Warnings: Spoilers from Skyfall.
Summary: The crisis is over but no one at MI6 is sleeping yet.

Why I loved it: I love this fic a lot. Q is so awkward and Bill is going through so much after what has happened in Skyfall. I loved them talking about M and Bill missed her so much... and Mallory tries to do his work, and he cares about everyone, too. There's lot of h/c, everyone being affected by what has happened and the scene in the end is brilliant.



MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE


11. Title: I'll love you until the rivers run still, and the four winds we know blow away
Author: bucky_bunny_teeth (buckybunnyteeth)
Pairing(s) Leo Fitz/Alphonso "Mack" Mackenzie, Antoine Triplett/Skye (minor), Maria Hill/Bobbi Morse (minor), Phil Coulson/Clint Barton (minor), Jemma Simmons, Lance Hunter, Steve Rogers, the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy (mentioned)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 5,568
Warnings: -
Summary: Five outside perspectives of Fitz and Mack's relationship and One inside look.

Why I loved it: This is one of the first FitzMack fics I remember reading (I'm not sure if it was the first, but I decided to pick it anyway. There are team feels, everyone is protective of Fitz, Fitz being badass, Phil is awesome, I even didn't mind Skye being there. And Fitz and Mack are wonderful and adorable together.

12. Title: Secret Santa
Author: tryceratops
Pairing(s) Sif/Darcy Lewis, Jane Foster
Rating: General Audiences
Word Count: 1,244
Warnings: -
Summary: Darcy has to come up with a gift idea for Sif.

Why I loved it: This one is wonderful. I want to hug Darcy because she's sweet and I love her friendship with Jane. It's short but very nice.

13. Title: a place where you can get away
Author: Nymora
Pairing(s) Peter Quill/Darcy Lewis, Guardians of the Galaxy
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 1,244
Warnings: -
Summary: When you take advantage of a meteor shower to visit the place/planet that used to be home, Peter Quill thinks it’s only right to finish off the nostalgia with a meal at your mom’s favorite restaurant. And when there’s a hot guy who looks like the world is ending right there on his plate of pancakes/french fries, Darcy Lewis thinks it’s only right to take him home once your shift is over.
This kind of logic is exactly why it comes as no surprise when things start to go completely wrong less than 24 hours after Quill lands on Earth.

Why I loved it: So, technically, the first think that made me consider Peter/Darcy was a random prompt I found somewhere, but this is actually the first fic I've read about it, and I decided I like it. They would be kind of badass together. And just imagine all the sass and teasing! I like it.



PERSON OF INTEREST


14. Title: An Officer and a Gentleman
Author: Laura Kaye (laurakaye)
Pairing(s) Joss Carter/Samantha Shaw
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 4,057
Warnings: -
Summary: At some point Carter seems to have become Shaw’s unofficial partner in Finch’s merry little enterprise. When she confronts John about this, he just looks at her mildly and says, “You work well together.” Which she figures is John for “Which means I don’t have to,” with a side order of “Please keep her away from Finch as much as possible,” and a dash of “I trust you to rein in her more homicidal impulses.”
Yeah, like it's going to be that simple.

Why I loved it: While I liked the idea on Carter/Shaw before I've read fics, it was actually very nice to read one. I love how Shaw and Carter are written together. I like how them working things out is established and how they actually learn how the other works.



TEEN WOLF


15. Title: Mahealahey (WIP)
Author: verdreht
Pairing(s) Danny Mahealani/Isaac Lahey, Jackson Whittemore, Stiles Stilinski, Derek Hale, Scott McCall, Allison Argent, Peter Hale, Alan Deaton, Original Characters
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word Count: 55,936
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Summary: "Tutu always says nothing makes a bad day better than a little something sweet, and Isaac looks like he could use a better day."
Essentially, Danny's finding his way to Isaac's heart through his stomach, and Isaac's being cute a little (lot) emotionally damaged and maybe not quite as oblivious as Danny thinks. Isaac/Danny slash fluffiness!

Why I loved it: This is the first Danny/Isaac fic I've read and it definitely convinced me that this pairing just works for me. After reading the next chapters of this series Danny/Isaac became my favourite TW pairing. Also, comic books are discussed, Danny's trying to woo Isaac with Hawaiian pastries, Isaac is wonderful, I love the friendship between Danny and Jackson, Danny finds out about werewolves, I want to hug Isaac and Danny... I just like this series in general. Hopefully it'll be continued.

Nice Recs. So many people seem to ship Barry and Leonard :D it's kind of funny :D
verdande_miverdande_mi on October 24th, 2015 10:04 pm (UTC)
Butting in, but this ship suddenly became so obvious to me with the last The Flash episode and now I cannot seem to unsee it :D :D
Adommy-Fangirl: Flash - Barry *bloody*bm_shipper on October 25th, 2015 04:51 pm (UTC)
Same actually. I mean, I KNEW that this ship is very popular in the Flash Fandom, it IS. It's one of the biggest slash ships, but never really felt the spark. Until last episode... now I'm like "okay, I can see it now..." :D
Megan Moonlight: singhmegan_moonlight on October 27th, 2015 07:24 pm (UTC)
I kind of felt the spark right from the second episode Leonard appeared in, but I actually got into this pairint after I started reading fics about them. That's why I'm very happy many people seem to be into it as well :)

At this point I just love reading fics about all the Rogues, doesn't matter which pairings or friendships XD I really like the Rogues.
verdande_miverdande_mi on October 29th, 2015 10:48 am (UTC)
After I have done some more useful things today - I hope to have time to check out some of the fics you recced - I'm curious now :) :)
Megan Moonlight: singhmegan_moonlight on October 30th, 2015 06:50 pm (UTC)
Enjoy! I'm so happy that so many people seem to be interested in writing fics about the Rogues :D

And I guess more fics about them will appear after Legends of Tomorrow starts.
Megan Moonlight: singhmegan_moonlight on October 27th, 2015 07:29 pm (UTC)
I like this pairing since the second episode Leonard appeared in (I even included it in the icon post I made), so I'm very happy it got popular :)

At this point I just love all the Rogues and I love reading about them, doesn't matter which pairings people write XD
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Riddler/Jimtardis_mafia on October 24th, 2015 09:15 pm (UTC)
Also, look at the beautiful icon made for me by the amazing tardis_mafia!
