I need some good Veronica and Logan 180 dat reunion fics. Any suggestions? Thanks guys you've been a life saver when it comes to my Logan and Veronica addiction ;)

This fic list brought to you by another AMAZING, TALENTED, and FANTASTICAL member of the VM Fic Recs Advisory Panel: lilamadison11​! Thanks, darling dear, for finding us fics for this request that is obviously 1) WAY overdue, and 2) near and dear to many peoples’ hearts. 

Previously on VM Fic Recs:

absolutelyiris, “The Long Way Home,” M, Movie through Post-TDTL.

“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.

alilamba, “The Still Point (On a Spinning World),” T, Post Movie AU.*

Four weeks after he leaves her, Lieutenant Logan Echolls is dead. Veronica dissolves in her grief, because there’s more to their story. Far away and unknown to her, the man she loves is not gone, but lost. He wakes up in the middle of nowhere knowing one thing for certain: he needs to get back to her. *The reunion is not quite 180 days for reasons that would spoil the story

CaitlynMacKenzie, “Come Back to Me” T, Post-Movie AU.*

The first story (Come Back to Me) 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. *The reunion is not quite 180 days for reasons that would spoil the story

fluffernutter8, “Wingspan,” T, Post Movie AU.

”Write me long letters, Veronica.” In the months after her return to Neptune, things return to whatever level of normal they can. Veronica has a case, and a new thing for communicating with Logan.

semele, “Spanning Continents,” M, Post Movie.

“In five months, you’re going to have sex with Veronica Mars,” he remembers as he lies down every night, and his fantasies go wild, but then five months turn into three, two, one, weeks, days, and suddenly Logan finds himself at an airport, and discovers that he’s absolutely terrified.

youcallitwinter, “gravity is gonna keep you tied down to this city,” T, summer after S3 through Post TDTL.

[your life in extended parenthesis] the lone neon nights and the ache of the ocean, and the fire that was starting to spark. From the love to the lightning and the lack of it.

Summary:
Logan has been gone for thirty-two days when Veronica realizes her world will never be the same again.
Notes:
This is one of the wonderful fics to come out soon after the movie was released and is beautifully written.  Set up with vignettes and moments of their 180 days through to a few months after Logan returns, it features well-done characterization, angst and a lot of sweetness.  It also has some very funny quips and I found myself laughing out loud a few times while reading.  A great read.

Summary:
Unexpectedly, their 180 days became slightly more than that. A case took her out of town and they’ll have to wait just a little longer. But what is a couple of extra days? Compared to everything that is them? Of course, Logan Echolls should know by now how crafty an impatient Veronica Mars can be. A Fleet Week fantasia, post-movie, inevitable AU, shameless good times.
Notes:
I don’t think I can express how perfect this fic is or do any sort of justice to it with my notes.  I felt like I was one of the young women watching them reunite as I read it – big smile plastered to my face.  It has one of the best endings to a fic that I’ve read in a long time.  I went and had to reread it just while I was writing this, it is THAT good.

Notes:
A short and very well-done snapshot of Veronica and Logan’s reunion after 180 days that was written by the amazing youcallitwinter soon after the movie was released.  One of my favorite lines is this: “It’s like she’s eighteen and twenty-eight all at once, and every year in between, every year in between that he missed-“  I cannot say enough wonderful things about this ficlit.  You just need to read it if you missed it.  You will not be disappointed.

Summary:
Logan Echolls, the nine years, and the Navy.
Notes:
Part 1 of the Done by Only Me series.  Mainly about Logan’s nine years apart from Veronica, this fic delves into how he came to be in the Navy.  It is one of my absolute favorite fics to come out after the movie and I return to reread it it all the time.  Bryrosea does an incredible job with her research and it shines through.  There is a lovely part near the end around their reunion after 180 days apart.  An incredible fic by an incredible writer.  If you haven’t read this fic and its companion, go now.  Right now.

Summary:
Veronica Mars, the nine years, and a new normal.
Notes:
Part 2 of the Done by Only Me series, as with the first part, the reunion is near the end of the fic.  This is the companion piece to Bryrosea’s Waste of Breath fic.  It is Veronica’s POV and it is one of the most powerful fics I’ve read in a long time.  As with part one, the research that she did for this and the level of care she had for Veronica and what she went through during that time floored me.  I loved the scenes of Veronica at Stanford and there is an amazing moment when she learns of what Logan now does for a living.  I have always wanted to create art for the reunion scene from this fic because it is one of the most moving reunion depictions I have read but I’m afraid it will entirely spoil the fic for those who haven’t read it.  You will not be disappointed by this reunion. The last few lines of the fic are pure perfection (redundancy be damned).

Summary:
Veronica squinted at the line of tiny, white-uniform-wearing figures along the side of the massive ship, looking from one to the next as if she could possibly pick out Logan from this distance.
Notes:
This is another one of my favorite post movie, post 180 days fics.  It has an incredibly sweet scene when Logan and Veronica reunite as well as a poignant dinner that interrupts their reunion.  I adore Keith and Veronica’s relationship and also have a special place for Logan and Keith moments and this fic did not disappoint with that.   As with all of her fics, Macha’s characterization is flawless, her stories are filled with wonderful moments that you can feel and her Logan and Veronica interactions make me melt.

Lianne and Veronica meet up in a diner, with Hunter, the day Logan comes home.
Notes:
Although not quite about their reunion, this Lianne POV fic takes place the day Logan returns. It is so good and I had to recommend it as another way their reunion day could have occurred. This may be more of a family drama fic than a romance, but watching Logan and Veronica through Lianne’s eyes was something I never knew I needed.   And the moments between Veronica, Logan and Hunter are perfect.  I love how petpluto looks at the relationship of Veronica and Lianne in this as well.  She brings these characters to life so beautifully.

There are days when Logan can’t stop thinking about Veronica’s legs.
Notes:
Logan fantasizes about Veronica while he’s on deployment.  When they reunite he attempts to make them a reality.  And as is often the case with Veronica and Logan, nothing ends up as planned and yet it was just as meant to be.  Sweet and sexy all at once.
