Title: Brother’s Keeper
Author: [livejournal.com profile] melissima
Pairing/Characters: Don and Charlie
Rating: G
Length: 300 words
Why I’m reccing this fic: This is my first fic featuring young Don and Charlie. It surprised me with its foreshadowing of the pilot decades before that watershed case.

One of my favourite drabbles is one that was only published last week, but as I told the author, it really was a perfect encapsulation of what a drabble should be. It hinted at a lot of things, but it also was complete in itself. I found out afterwards that it's part of a series but I think it stands beautifully on it's own. Also: hey, femslash! Rare as hen's teeth; rarer, still, when it's so good.

Anything You Say by [livejournal.com profile] sororcula (femslash; Megan/Amita; 13+)

She feels the heat in her face, but she can't move, frozen in place under Megan's gaze.


[livejournal.com profile] emmademarais is crazy prolific, and she's not afraid to play with her format which is why I like her writing. I also like her sympathetic view of the characters that is so completely canon. (I, personally, love canon but have a hard time writing to it; Emma kicks a lot of ass in that department.) It's difficult to choose a favourite because she publishes so many and it can get difficult to keep them all in order, but this is a recent one that I remember enjoying a lot. Again, it's part of a series, but it reads well on it's own. The beauty of the drabble is that it combines both stasis and action; a snapshot of a moment that changes your perceptions, or your ideas.

A World of Numbers by [livejournal.com profile] emmademarais (gen; Don, Charlie; pre-series)

When their mother was dying, Don would go to the garage and watch Charlie work on P vs. NP.


I don't think there are many people who write Megan/Larry so well as [livejournal.com profile] jestana. I openly envy this talent in her because every time I try to write the pairing, I angst-up. But [livejournal.com profile] jestana brings a loving touch to this lovely couple. Most of her Megan/Larry fic tends to be longer, but I managed to find a drabble, hurrah!

Phone Conversation by [livejournal.com profile] jestana (Larry/Megan; Rampage, S2)

Larry? It's Megan. How are you?


I rarely rec Numb3rs fics without reccing [livejournal.com profile] raeyashi and that's because it would be a sin to omit her. [livejournal.com profile] raeyashi is the sum reason why I read Don/Coop fic, and the reason why I try to be a story-teller as well as a writer. Sometimes when you read her work, she takes a different narrative route. Her writing becomes cinematic: it's wonderful. I don't know anybody who can make me feel like I've stepped out of my immediate frame of reference and into something much more daring. There's backfic, and then there's [livejournal.com profile] raeyashi.

The Love Song of Dick and May by [livejournal.com profile] raeyashi (slash; Don/Coop; pre-series; PG)

You’ve heard this story before.


Finally, a rec that plays to my personal obsession: that is, Megan's history. [livejournal.com profile] neur0vanity is practically a staple of the fandom and yet, shamedly, I've only recently read her work with interest. (This is more to do with my 'cest-squick issues than a negative opinion of NV's writing ability). Obviously I should have come around earlier because [livejournal.com profile] neur0vanity has quite the touch for this fandom. This particular rec gives an insight into Megan that seems so obvious, but is so rarely said out loud. It's also fairly chilling to think of the road not taken.

Somebody's Daughter by [livejournal.com profile] neur0vanity (gen; Megan; post-Two Daughters; 15+)

She choked, but the nausea curbed her hunger.


On a slightly cheekier note: please, someone has to rec David drabbles. There's got to be some good ones out there, yes?

Title: Graceful Escape
Author: Schuyler Lola
Pairing: no pairing
Rating: T
Length: 22,957
Why I'm reccing this fic: Because this is one of the best representations of Megan's childhood, and hardly anything is known about Megan's childhood.

Title: Left Wanting
Author: [livejournal.com profile] spikedluv
Pairing: Don/Howard Meeks (Don/Liz implied)
Rating: NC17
Length: 6059 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: I love the banter between Don and Megan in this - the way she talks about Don's reputation makes me LOL every single time. I'm not quoting anything, because I can't cut a short enough piece without spoiling the flow of the scene. Just, go, read! The story is a sequel to Want Not

Title: Using the Mill

Rating: PG-13
Length: 300
Why I'm reccing this fic: I think this fic beautifully illustrates Megan and Don's friendship.

Title: Untitled
Author: [profile] neur0vanity
Pairing: Don/Megan/Coop
Rating: NC_17
Length: 142
Why I'm reccing this fic: 3 reasons-OMG it is insanely h0t, can you say threesomes and cause [profile] neur0vanity wrote it just for me!

Title: Claddagh:
Author: V. Laike
Pairing: Megan, Don
Rating: T
Length: 2070 words:
Why I'm reccing this fic: Why? When you read the last line you will know why. It is absolutily beautiful piece. I love the depiction of Megan's relationship with Don. It fits so well in with the season opener Spree and then Two Daughters.  Also fit well with the scene in Brutus where Megan comments on the vain in the middle of Don's forehead.

(thanks [profile] fanfictionrules for the episode name)
