An Innocent Man (Sherlock)

Title: An Innocent Man

Author: Fangs_Fawn (AO3)

Summary: "And what about John Watson?" Sherlock had asked. He had expected a rather dull answer...after all, he had been away. He had not expected to hear that John had spent the past two years in prison. Series 3 AU.

Reason for Reccing: This is the first fanfiction I have read since I started college and it was a great introduction back.  This is a series three AU that is completely in character, brilliantly written, and spot-on characterization.  The only thing I will say is that make sure to heed the author's warnings at the beginning of certain chapters.

The Hallways (Sherlock)

Title: The Hallways

Author: blacktail_chorus (AO3)

Summary: "He twitched when Sherlock appeared beside him, then turned to meet his friend's eyes, questioning. It seemed he was always asking Sherlock what to do next. Even now."
John's wife and his daughter are dead, and he stands in a hallway alone with his grief. Then Sherlock comes to his side.

Reason for Reccing: I don't normally rec short fics mostly because I don't usually read short fics, but this fic is Sherlock giving John and hug  and it's completely in character.  Enough said.

That Time of Truth (Merlin)

Title: That Time of Truth

Author: hwc (AO3)

Summary: Druids start to slowly come out of hiding, living their lives peacefully in the kingdom and even sending a diplomat or two to Camelot. After a close call or two, Merlin has to have a chat with them about not revealing Merlin's identity. While no one ever does reveal Merlin is Emrys, a lot of people start to talk about Emrys in Camelot.

Reason for Reccing: This is one of my favorite fics in the Merlin fandom.  I love how the author portrays Arthur's changing attitude about magic as a progression instead of overnight which I don't find realistic.  This author's characterization is so good that every time I read this fic I can hear Colin and Bradley's voices in my head as I read. 
Title: For the Love of Rubbish Servants

Author: kriadydragon (AO3, livejournal)

Summary: Merlin has taken off, Arthur isn't happy,

Reason for Reccing: I have to admit that I am rather partial to this fic since it was written in response to a prompt that I posted.  This fic is blended perfectly with humor and angst, and as always with kriadydragon, the writing and characterization is spot on.  

Waiting in the Dark (Merlin)

Title: Waiting in the Dark

Author: kriadydragon (AO3, livejournal)

Summary: Merlin made a promise.

Reason for Reccing:  Kriadydragon is one of my top favorite authors in all of fanfiction, and this is one of my favorite stories by her.  Her characterization is spot on; the dialogue is heartbreaking and I couldn't figure out who to hurt for more, Arthur or Merlin.  Well worth your time to go and read this gem. 

Unexpected Talents (Sherlock)

Title: Unexpected Talents

Author: grannysknitting (fanfiction)

Summary: Sherlock ponders the myth that doctors have no business holding a pen. John twists his knee.

Reason for Reccing: I absolutely love it when author's put their own spin on characters and add hobbies/talents that isn't canon compliant but fits so well with their personalities.  That's what this author has done, and she did it brilliantly.  She gave John the talent of sketching, and led into the fic with a well-written intro on John's handwriting.  This is an amazing read, for sure.  

Title: Without the Usual Cost of Labor

Author: vain_glorious (AO3)

Summary: "Someone just reported to SHIELD that whatever was stolen produced “viable offspring,” and we’re hoping that doesn’t mean what we think it does,” Bruce says, evidently deciding to take over for Tony after only one masturbation joke.

Reason for Reccing: Written from Tony's POV, this fic is spot on with characterization. The plot is unique and the dialogue is hilarious.  Definitely a win.

Title: Brothers in Arms

Author: copperbadge (AO3)

Summary: Bucky Barnes gets a tune-up, a new pet, and a home.

Reason for Reccing: I feel like I am starting to sound like a broken record because all of the CA fics that I have read in the last few days have been fantastic and this one is no exception.  In fact, if the author would write a series for this fic, it would make my life.  The author did an amazing job of creating a Bucky Barnes who is believable, broken, and healing and it is so beautifully written. 
Title: Clint Barton's Home for Wayward Mind Wiped Assassins

Author: roguewrld (AO3)

Summary: “Where ever you were, whatever you did and whoever you did it for, it’s over. You need to pretend to be a person now, okay?”

Reason for Reccing: This fic was recced to me on avengers_search and I love the author's take on Clint.  His internal dialogue was right on, so much so that I could here Jeremy Renner's voice in my head as I read. The author does a brilliant job in building a believable friendship between Clint and Bucky.  This is a must read if you are looking for Captain America fics. 
Title: The Care and Feeding of Traumatized Ex-Assassins

Author: Sholio (AO3, dreamwidth)

Summary: Steve starts to notice someone's been in his apartment while he's not there.

Reason for Reccing: This is the second fic by this author that I have recced, and I have loved her writing since I was introduced to her White Collar fics.  If you are not familiar with her writing, do yourself a favor and check her out.  This fic has the characterizations dead on.  I love how she rebuilds the friendships between Steve and Bucky from the foundation up.  Beautiful read.
