Title Double Blind
Author: medie
Rating: PG-13
Fandom:  Star Trek: The Original Series
Characters/Pairings:  Chapel, Uhura, Misc. Female characters; Gen
Genre:  Adventure/Drama/
Summery: It all starts with a sneeze.

Why:  This story is awesome, that's why.  It gives us canon characters (all but one of the characters in this story is from canon) and puts them in a situation where half the crew is sick and Chapel and Uhura as well as others have to take on command of their departments and hope they find a cure before its too late.  It has great characterization and there is use of many characters that don't really see fic much.

Title: Consumed
Category:  Harry Potter
Author: theliningsilver
Rating:  R, T (Possibly NC-17/M)
Genre:  Romance
Pairings/Character: Pansy, Ron, Ginny, Draco, Harry, Hermione;  Pansy/Ron, Draco/Ginny
Spoilers/Warnings:  Not Epilogue friendly
Author's Summary:  (none available)

Why:  This is one of my favorite Pansy/Ron stories.  Its actually a sequel to a Draco/Ginny story, but I actually like this one the best.  Basically, it starts with Draco and Ginny getting married and Pansy and Ron arguing in their usual way. Except things get out of hand and they find themselves involved during the few weeks D & G are off on their honeymoon.  And then it turns out to be something more then what they were expecting.

I'm still looking for this somewhere else, because she has it posted amongst other things so sometimes it can be hard to navigate the story.  The story it comes from has been locked on LJ so I'm not sure how to retrieve that either.

The Doctor paused mid bite and peered at her suspiciously. 'I... should get married?' he said eventually.
'To Rose,' added Donna, as though that clarified everything.


Why:  I'm a sucker for Ten/Rose fluff.  Add Donna and I'm positively squeeing.  Plus its a good fic.  And it has this line:

I really need to stop placing bets on you,' said Rose, eyes still shining with mirth. 'I owe Jack twenty quid, after all.'

'Whatever for?' asked the Doctor, trying to remember what Jack had said last time they'd visited.

'For not thinking you're as gullible as you actually are,' she said. 'I can't believe you honestly thought he was the Face of Boe! He bet me twenty quid he could convince you that and you actually believed it.'
