LIKE I COULD CHOOSE ONE.
The Hot 100 Singles of 1965 & 1966 by pepperlandgirl (Mad Men, Peggy & Joan)
This is the friendship I wish they could have.
When All That’s Right is Wrong by ladycat777 (SGA, Jeannie Miller)
I love Jeannie Miller forever and ever and I love sibling fic, and this brings good both. AU, post “McKay and Mrs. Miller.”
Anywhere But Here by Sarah T. (BtVS, Dawn & Ethan)
I don’t even like Dawn, usually, but this is beautiful. Probably my favorite fic in Buffy fandom.
All of Us Amazons by psocoptera (Huge, Alistair & Chloe)
I thought Huge was really wonderful, and I loved seeing this future for Alistair (Alyssa, here, finally getting to be herself) and her sister, one where they got to be loving and supportive without all that crap getting in the way.
No White Flags Here by Senri (Young Wizards, Nita/Joanne)
This is a super rare and kind of strange pairing, but Senri executes it beautifully.
Boston Marriage by Jae (Gilmore Girls, Rory/Paris)
I recently started watching Gilmore Girls, and I’m a sucker for Rory/Paris. This is adorable and very, very Paris.
Abby Stevenson’s Theory of Winnertivity by mizzmarvel (BSC, Abby/Stacey)
Yuletide is always good for Babysitter’s Club fic and I’m not too picky about my pairings. This is probably the most charming produced by the fest.
Friendship and Love by Claire (Bend It Like Beckham, Jules/Jess)
MY HEART WILL BURST, IT CANNOT TAKE THIS.
Every Good Girl Does Fine by Charli J (Peanuts, Marcy/Patti)
Peppermint Patti was always my favorite baby dyke when I was little. Apart from, of course:
The Secret in the Squeaky Springs by Lyra (Nancy Drew, George/Bess)
GEORGE FAYNE. WHO RULES. (Also, Nancy is hilariously oblivious in this.)
And, finally, because they’re my favorites, one Buffy/Faith rec:
Better Luck With Girls by Shrift
A bit of not-quite-smut for the road!
