anonymous asked:

What are some of your all-time favorite LoVe chapter fics & one-shots?

Hi there! Thanks for the ask! A long whiles ago we received a similar ask and in response Kait and Suzanne put their Veronica Mars fic starter kit together. We’ve been meaning to update it for some time and this was a fantastic kick in the butt.

LOOK AT THEM!! THEY’RE SO PRETTY.

All of the fics below have already been recommended by us but they’re definitely our Logan x Veronica, “YOUR JOURNEY BEGINS HERE” kit. 

We’ve each picked one fic in a wide variety of timeline categories giving you thirteen different fics. Our individual all-time lists would be LONG, but this is a pretty good one for us merging our minds, we think. It will also likely be updated once Mr. Kiss and Tell is officially released as other fics are written which take into account both TDTL and MKAT canon details. 

PRE-SERIES FICS:

A Trace of Meaning 
Author: ghostcat3000
Rating: T
Genre: Friendship/Humor
Setting: Pre-series
Spoilers: None
Chapters: 1
Word Count: 6, 833
Status: Complete
Summary: 13 year-old Logan Echolls and 14 year-old Veronica Mars wait at the Kane Estate for their held-up sleepover hosts to show up. Pre-series canon speculation.
Notes: Veronica is one part sweetness and two parts sass. And Logan is one part “I wanna snuggle you” and two parts “I want to smack you.” If thinking this fic is canon is wrong, then we don’t want to be right.

HIs Friend, Too
Author: arbailey
Rating: T
Genre: Angst/Romance (well mostly romance, tbh)
Setting: Pre-series AU
Spoilers: 1.22, “Leave It to Beaver”
Chapters: 12
Word Count: 42, 162
Status: Complete
Summary: When Veronica catches her best friend with an ageing action star, everything falls apart.
Notes: A “what-if” that changes the course of the series. Well-written. It’s nice to see how Veronica and Logan’s friendship develops past Lilly’s transgressions.

MID-SEASON or POST-SEASON AU:

Sins of the Father
Author: Emiko74
Rating: M
Genre: Romance/Mystery
Setting: AU Season 3
Spoilers: 3.07, “Of Vice and Men”
Chapters: 13
Word Count: 44, 731
Status: Complete
Summary: As their freshman year at Hearst draws to a close, Logan and Veronica’s relationship begins to unravel. But a new mystery could bring them together again.
Notes: One of our all-time faves. Goes AU after 3.07 – so the rapist is revealed but it deviates from canon in terms of the identity. SO damn good. Better mystery than those we got in season three, in our opinion. Funny, and poignant, and super sexy too.

Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own
Author: mysilverylining
Rating: T
Genre: Romance/Adventure
Setting: Season 1 AU
Spoilers: 1.03, “Meet John Smith”
Chapters: 26
Word Count: 249, 611 (so far)
Status: In progress
Summary: Silly Duncan stopped taking his meds. Now, one dead Fitzpatrick later, Logan and Veronica need to get him out of town. Too bad they hate each other.
Notes: Some parts are funny, some parts are angsty, and all will keep you on the edge of your seat. It has UST up the wazoo and you’ll keep reading until your eyes cross. Also has one of the hottest fakeout makeouts in the history of the trope.

FUTURE FIC AUs — WRITTEN BEFORE NEW MOVIE CANON:

Follow the MacGuffin
Author: happilyshanghaied
Rating: T, with some chapters rated M
Genre: Romance/Adventure
Setting: Future
Spoilers: All three seasons
Chapters: 40
Word Count: 204, 743
Status: Complete
Summary: After a botched FBI case sends Veronica scrambling back to Neptune, she decides to lick her wounds while working at Mars Investigations. What starts out as a simple cheating spouse case for one of the city’s most notorious residents, quickly goes awry and triggers a series of events that unravel a twisted plot leading her to the last person she’d expect to find.
Notes: Harkening back to ye olde days of seasons one and two, this fic is noir. You’ll be in awe at her wondrous exposition, and you’ll want to shake every character until all their secrets pop out. And there are a lot of secrets. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE. If you indeed manage to finish all 200, 000 and change words of this fic, there’s a sequel! Yes, that’s right, folks; this fic will leave you wanting more and you won’t be kept waiting – Red Herrings is in progress, and is currently 23 chapters and 235, 758 words so far.

Full Circle (on LJ. Link goes to epilogue; links to each chapter there.)
Author: gertinator
Rating: PG-13 to R, with some chapters rated NC-17
Genre: Romance/Mystery
Setting: Future AU
Spoilers2.22, “Not Pictured”
Chapters: 22, with an epilogue
Word Count: 134, 297 including epilogue
Status: Complete
Summary: Veronica and Logan find their way back to each other and solve a mystery, too.
Notes: Another perfect future fic. It’ll make you laugh, cry, and fall in love even more with the characters (especially one Logan Echolls). You just… you need to read this fic. Uses the addiction metaphor like the movie, but from Logan’s POV and makes it a little more clear.

MOVIE-VERSE FICS: 

“I Fell in Love Again” Series
Author: 
bryrosea
Pairing: Logan/Veronica, Ensemble
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Drama/Mystery/Romance
Setting: 
Movie
Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie
Chapters: 7
Word Count:
 24, 389
Status: Complete
Summary: A series of one shots set in and around the Veronica Mars movie, all from Logan’s POV. These can be read independently. All of the titles are taken from song lyrics from the movie soundtrack.
Notes: What a fantastic movie-verse fic. Like the summary says, this is a series of one-shots that focus on Logan’s POV. And it’s done BRILLIANTLY. If you ever wanted to fall in love with LoVe again (see what I did there?), or if the movie’s focus on Veronica’s POV left you yearning for Logan’s take on things, this is the series for you! 

The Long Way Home
Author: absolutelyiris
Pairing: Logan/Veronica, Keith, Wallace
Rating: E
Genre: Romance/Drama
Setting: Movie through Post-TDTL
Spoilers: The Thousand Dollar Tan Line
Chapters: 3
Word Count: 18, 439
Status: Complete
Summary: “We should take the long way home.” Veronica’s POV. Snapshots that begin in the cab ride which we see in the movie through Logan’s return from deployment. 
Notes: This. Fic. THIS FIC!!!! Holy mackerel. This fic. Is that not a clear enough statement of our love for this fic? We feel like it is. First off, we’re not joking: this is close to perfection. The only reason we’re not giving it the full “perfect stamp” is because absolutelyiris is still writing and we have no doubt some of her future stories will knock us on our ass with feels. But…it’s poignant, and honest, and SEXY, and just damn good. Read it once. Take a break. Read it again, because DAMN.

MOVIE-VERSE AU FICS: 

Learning to Count on You” Series
Author: CaitlynMacKenzie (aka susanmichelin)
Pairing: Logan/Veronica
Rating: PG-13 through R
Genre: Romance/Mystery
Setting: 
Post-Movie AU
Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie
Chapters: 73 thus far
Word Count:
 255, 552
Status: In progress
Summary: The story picks up after the Veronica Mars movie. Logan is still on deployment and Veronica is working at Mars Investigations on a routine cheating spouse case, when Wallace walks into her office with terrible news. Now Veronica is drawn into a case that is very personal for her and the stakes to solve this one are extremely high. It continues with “A Closed Set” (complete) and “Espionage” (in progress) but there are other mid-story or prequel elements sprinkled throughout. 
Notes: Rich character interaction, exciting mysteries, and a pretty cute addition to the Echolls family, this series is 255,000+ words of a pretty compelling argument that a happy ending is not outside the realm of possibility for Logan x Veronica. Above all, this fic is SMART and is clearly written by an author who loves every individual character for what they bring to the Veronica Mars table. 

Waypoints” Series
Author: 
machaswicket
Pairing: Logan/Veronica, Wallace, Dick
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Friendship/Drama/Romance
Setting: 
Future AU

Chapters: 4
Word Count:
 27, 673
Status: In progress
Summary: Based on a spoiler that was leaked prior to the movie, Wallace runs into Logan while they’re both on the job. They talk, Logan gives Wallace his number to pass on to Veronica.
Notes: What do we want? Part five of “Waypoints”!!! When do we want it? NOW!!! A series of fics (right now a quartet, but we are hoping and praying for a fifth fic) that has Logan in his movie profession, Veronica in her pre-Neptune movie profession, and the two of them being so freaking adorable and wonderful and grand that we just want to punch their faces.

BONUS FICS (aka, we were too stubborn to take them off our list):

Change Is All I Got
Author: wowsugarpuss
Characters: Veronica/Logan
Rating: M
Genre: Romance/Angst
Setting: Season 3, AU
Spoilers: 2.22, “Not Pictured”
Chapters: 1
Word Count: 12, 941
Status: Complete
Summary: Logan comes home for the holidays to spend Christmas with Veronica and her family.
Notes: Veronica and Logan are in a long distance relationship, which makes the time they’re able to spend during Christmas seem incredibly crucial. The emotions and FEELINGS are just RIGHT THERE. Each person fighting to be normal, and it’s just sigh inducing to see Veronica completely in character be open about needing Logan. Also, SEXY. Sexy like, WOAH. And heartbreaking because IT’S CHRISTMAS and both Veronica and Logan want some things to be different than they are. Appearances by Wallace, Keith, and Alicia.

Genre: Romance/Drama
Setting: AU pre-series to future
Spoilers: 3.20, “The Bitch is Back”
Chapters: 2
Word Count: 16, 428
Status: Complete
Summary: Logan is a time traveller.
Notes: Not a crack!fic. Actually just an amazing fic tbh. Based on The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, though familiarity of the book isn’t necessary. Logan involuntary travels back and forth through time, visiting Veronica throughout her life. This fic manages to be sweet and angsty at the same time. It’s just perfection, honestly.

A Strange New Story Every Time
Author: 
gyzym
Rating: PG-13, with one NC-17 scene
Genre: Romance
Setting: Future
Spoilers: All three seasons
Chapters: 1
Word Count: 19, 295
Status: Complete
Summary: Ten years clean of Neptune living, Logan’s past finds him at an all night grocery store.
Notes: This is absolutely essential reading for the fandom. Probably one of the most popular and most recommended fics EVER, and for good reason. The characterization of Logan is perfect: he’s grown up and responsible but still witty and charming. (To quote Ryan Hansen, Veronica’s great, too.) Seriously, read this fic if you haven’t already. If you already have, read it again. It’s just that good. (We’ve probably read it twenty times between the two of us. You think we’re joking?)

when your otp isn’t really a rarepair but also when you search for them on ao3 you mostly get fics when they’re the side pairing.

“Magnus?”

“Alexander,” Magnus says from the bed, and Alec enters the room fully, closing the door behind him. “I’m afraid I’m not in the best state to greet you properly.”

Alec chuckles, taking in the sight before him. Magnus is sprawled onto his lavender silk sheets, hair a bird’s nest on the top of his head, and he’s shirtless. The trash bin next to the bed almost overflowing with tissues, and Chairman Meow is curled up at the end of the bed, fast asleep.

Suddenly his entire body felt tingly and sensitive and he could swear gravity had failed on him just then; he couldn’t feel the chair he was sitting on, or where he’d planted his feet on the floor, or the clothes he was wearing, or the pen he was holding, and then his vision started blurring and morphing into a picture of some place that was not his classroom.

“Oh, shi—”

“—it,” he finished with a different voice.

Or, the AU in which, on their 22nd birthday, a person will switch bodies with their soulmate and is left to figure out whom they’re temporarily inhabiting, and how to get back to each other. But because Stiles is Stiles, he forgets that it’s his birthday, and the bodyswap takes him by surprise.

Comments: It was the cutest and sweetest thing ever. I just love all the misunderstandings; it’s so cute and adorable.

Summary/thoughts: “Remus doubts himself and Sirius plays Space Oddity.”

Total and complete fluff, in which Remus (who is trans) is experiencing some dysphoria and Sirius reassures him. Really really sweet…the kind of fic where as you finish it you realize you’re smiling and you can’t quite remember when you started.

Hello, I search for a fic where Stiles is going to university and Derek just won't go back to BH, instead accompanying Stiles to his lectures as wolf in order to 'protect' him. Over the time he becomes kind of an attraction with the university, but cue in jealousy when a female friend of Stiles comes back from an exchange year and Derek thinks that the two have something going on. Thank you so much for your help!

i absolutely adore this fic it’s one of my favourites! Here you go!

Theory of Overprotective Canines (1/1 | 11,798 | PG-13)

Stiles is totally looking forward to living alone in his super cool apartment off-campus. He is. He is also very excited to bike to school every day, ready to set up an awesome game room, and definitely over his crush on Derek Hale. Completely over it.

Or at least he is until Derek decides he’s moving in with him. And then turns out to be the perfect roommate. And then starts attending all his classes. As a wolf.

This is not going according to plan.

never again left unsaid by hufflebee
By Organization for Transformative Works

It wasn’t until about two months after Valentine was arrested that Magnus noticed it. (…) Alec never left the loft without saying it. Magnus thought back to the weeks after they’d first said it and found that, as far as he remembered, Alec and him never parted without Alec telling Magnus he loved him.

Throwback Thursday

Happy Thursday, Philes! Today’s throwback is a fic that we feel deserves more recognition, a story that deserves your time and your love.  Click that link, read the fic, and enjoy!

We love a good stake-out fic.  That probably stems from that if-there’s-an-iced-tea-in-that-bag tête-à-tête from Tooms that has become one of the most iconic scenes in MSR history: Tight quarters for hours on end, low murmured voices, unintentional slips that maybe reveal more than either had anticipated, you get the idea.  Today’s fic is a quick read that takes place post-Arcadia.  The banter is on point and the conversation is one we wish would have actually taken place.

Title:  The Third

Author:  Susanne Barringer

Rating:  PG

Synopsis:   Mulder and Scully, a car, a late night, lots of conversation, iced tea.

"A Heart Is A Heavy Burden" by Lielabell (Sterek Fic Review)

Fan art by kickingshoes for this fic

A Heart Is A Heavy Burden by lielabell

Official Summary: In Which Stiles: is accosted by unhappy witches, becomes friends with fire demons, is rescued by darkly handsome wizards, discovers hidden inner depths, is introduced to princes, and finds true love. Though not necessarily in that order. (Or the Howl’s Moving Castle AU fusion fic you never knew you wanted but are delighted to have.) (41,242 words)

My Take: Great - this lovely story overflows with charm.

What a delightful story! And a well-handled crossover.

If you’re familiar with “Howl’s Moving Castle,” you’ll know that the book by Diana Wynne Jones and the movie adaptation by Studio Ghibli are both beautiful works; and also that, although they tell the same basic story, they diverge in some important ways.

Lielabell has deftly bridged the gap between both movie and book versions and “Teen Wolf.” We are left with a fast-paced, engaging story that puts Stiles into the role of the Witch of the Waste’s victim, cursed into a creaky, elderly body. His only hope is the powerful wizard Hale.

Aside from masterfully adapting the original story, the author has managed to keep all of the charm and whimsy of the original version alive in this one, making it a pleasure to read. Most of the Teen Wolf characters fit into the story remarkably well, including Jackson as the Fire Demon and Kate as the Witch of the Waste. (A few others feel a bit more shoehorned in, like Scott, but they detracted nothing from the fun experience of reading.) The pacing of the story was perfect, and its length was perfectly fit to the depth of story being told.

I did feel the romance was under-served. This is a your-mileage-may-vary kind of thing, because the emphasis of the original story is not romance so much as adventure; and if you’re looking for the same thing here, you’ll find it. But I read this stuff for Sterek, and I didn’t buy into their relationship at all. They got together solely because that’s what they were supposed to do. At no point did I believe they were really in love; for that matter, I couldn’t even begin to tell you why the Derek of this story was interested in Stiles (but then, this is also an issue I personally have with 85% of Sterek fics I read; it’s always taken for granted that of course Derek will experience epic love for Stiles).

By the way, if it’s not clear, I also highly recommend the original “Howl’s Moving Castle” – both movie and book versions – if you haven’t already experienced them.

I’m sure you’ll also agree that the art for this fic is absolutely gorgeous; I think it may be one of my favorite Sterek pieces ever. You can find more curated art from kickingshoes here. Her tumblr is here

“He watched with a sadness he couldn’t define as Alec drained the last drop of his drink. A toast to the dying, he thought, and took another sip of his own. Magnus supposed Alec had stuck to their agreement: One more drink and then decide. He’d decided.”

An Archive of Our Own, a project of the Organization for Transformative Works
By Organization for Transformative Works

Cora appears on his doorstep in early September, face determined and belly rounded. Her scent is still familiar, but it’s also changed, somehow: more complex, fertile.

“Cora,” Derek breaths.

He thinks the thought in full standing in front of his mirror, brushing his teeth, and the way it drops into his mind unannounced and unwelcome yet ringing with truth makes him freeze, meeting his own gaze in the mirror, toothbrush still hanging askew out of his mouth.

‘I want to raise this child.’

“Derek,” Stiles says, in a faux patient voice that he uses when he thinks that Derek’s being particularly dense. “You think that this option didn’t pop right into my head when you first told me about Cora? Come on, babe, I know you. I was totally prepared for this. I’ve reconciled.”

OR: The one where Cora turns up pregnant, Derek decides to raise her baby, and Stiles is (happily) along for the ride.

I know I'll fall in love with you, baby
