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.
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
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
“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
[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.
New IN THIS MOMENT to VM Fic Recs (and maybe to you?!?):
A Joy You Can’t Keep In Author: lorien829 Pairing: Logan/Veronica Rating: T Genre: Romance/Angst Setting: Post Movie Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie Chapters: 2 Word Count: 11,025 Status: Complete 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.
The Crowd Author:ghostcat3000 Pairing: Logan/Veronica Rating: M Genre: Romance Setting: Post Movie Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie Chapters: 1 Word Count: 3327 Status: Complete 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.
September Ends Author: youcallitwinter Pairing: Logan/Veronica Rating: T Genre: Romance Setting: Post Movie Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie Chapters: 1 Word Count: 1,050 Status: Complete Summary: “You’re still talking,” she notes, “don’t you have any setting that’s ‘vibrate only’?” 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.
Waste of Breath Author:bryrosea Pairing: Logan/Veronica, a little Logan/Carrie Rating: M Genre: Romance/Drama Setting: Pre-Movie, (nine years of radio silence) through Post-Movie Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie Chapters: 1 Word Count: 22,108 Status: Complete 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
A Quartz Contentment Author:bryrosea Pairing: Logan/Veronica, a little Veronica/Piz Rating: M Genre: Romance/Drama Setting: Pre-Movie, (nine years of radio silence) through Post-Movie Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie Chapters: 1 Word Count: 24,646 Status: Complete 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
Metal Under Tension Author:machaswicket Pairing: Logan/Veronica Rating: M Genre: Romance/Drama Setting: Post Movie, Post 180 days Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie Chapters: 1 Word Count: 6,106 Status: Complete 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.
Lean Not on Your Own Understanding Author:petpluto Pairing: Logan/Veronica Rating: General Audiences Genre: Romance/Drama Setting: Post TTDTL Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie, The Thousand Dollar Tan Line Chapters: 1 Word Count: 3,075 Status: Complete Summary: 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.
Legs Author: semele Pairing: Logan/Veronica Rating: M Genre: Romance/Drama Setting: Post Movie Spoilers: The Veronica Mars Movie Chapters: 1 Word Count: 1,379 Status: Complete Summary: 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.
