Agents of SHIELD
This Is No Broken Heart (4057 words) by nerdwegian - Skye, May, Ward
A plausible perspective on how the team could slowly become a family and Skye could regain some of Ward's trust. Skye is not my favorite character, but this piece made me really like her.

Couldn't Get That Boy To Kill Me (3158 words) by redbrunja - Clint/Natasha
A sexy and plausible look at Natasha when she first joins SHIELD. I envy the beauty of this writer's Natasha POV.

Disney Princesses
Four Things that Weren't Adequately Covered in Mulan's R.A. Training (4541 words) by NaomiK - Mulan, Belle, Rapunzel, Jasmine, Merida, Snow White, Aurora
Mulan is an RA in a college dorm inhabited by Disney princesses. Some of these girls' families are really dysfunctional. A funny take on Disney princesses in the real world, with understated themes of feminism and standing up for yourself.

Death Before Dusk (15816 words) by Yahtzee
Joan and Sherlock investigating an murder on the eve of an apocalypse. So chillingly good it haunted me for months after I read it.

Sleepy Hollow
We'll Take a Cup of Kindness Yet (3000 words) by Jedi Buttercup - Abbie/Ichabod UST
Abbie gets snowed in with Ichabod on New Year's Eve. A short and sweet friendship story with a side helping of UST. Bonus points for recognizing that Ichabod still loves his wife.

Elinor and Marianne (4021 words) by Yahtzee - Abbie, Ichabod, Jenny
Abbie introduces Ichabod to Jane Austen and learns a little bit about her sister along the way. A beautiful exploration of literature, friendship, and family.

Go Wash Your Heart In The River (12738 words) by mardia - Abbie, Ichabod, Jenny
A spooky case of the week narrated from Jenny's POV. I really loved seeing her growing friendship wtih Ichabod and her slow understanding with her sister.

Fast Falls the Eventide (1122 words) by grav_ity - Abbie, Ichabod, Jenny
I recced this yesterday, but I loved it enough to mention it again. A short, sweet character study of Abbie, Ichabod and Jenny by studying the places where they live.

Star Trek
Amnesty For the Brokenhearted (2237 words) by Thistlerose - unrequired Carol Marcus/Christine Chapel
I can't get enough of Carol Marcus dealing with the aftermath of her father's betrayal...which isn't surprising since there's barely any fic about it. This piece is a beautifully characterized portrait of a friendship.
