Ichigo/Rukia



Title: Say Your Goodbyes (by With A Smile)
Primary Pairing: Ichigo/Rukia
Length: one-shot
Rukia is told she can never return to Kamakura. A bit of a sad and tragic story. There is such a tiny amount of good Ichigo/Rukia fic, and this is one of the few that I felt was believable and more or less in character.

Title: Setting Sun, Rising Moon (by Jaina)
Primary Pairing: Ichigo/Rukia
Length: 12 chapters
Ichigo lives out his natural lifespan, and on death, winds up in Soul Society, poised to become a captain. Flashbacks to Ichigo's mortal life are sprinkled within the chapters, and it makes for a bittersweet story with a happy ending.

Other/General



Title: 20 Things We Learnt About Kuchiki Rukia (by afrai)
Primary Pairing: ??/Rukia
Length: one-shot
Even if you read nothing else on my list of recommendations for this series, read this. It's a short but wonderful insight into Rukia's character, and leaves you with unanswered questions in a very good way.

1&2 (primary)



Title: The Drums of Heaven (by Sol1056)
Primary Pairing: 1x2
Length: 50 chapters
Very plot-focused, and full of twists. Also a great many OCs, but all are fairly (if not very) likeable, and contribute to the story very fittingly. I admit it took me a while to think of Heero as a photographer without having to pause and stare, but this is truly a fic worth reading.

Title: Inheritance (by Sparkle Itamashii)
Primary Pairing: 1x2
Length: 30 chapters, epilogue
Starts out a bit housewifey, but turns into an enjoyable action plot. A few interesting twists.

Title: The Deal (by Dyna Dee)
Primary Pairing: 1x2
Length: 10 chapters
A light-hearted romance fic, really. Unlike the two above, it's not dark nor particularly full of non-romantic plot... but it's enjoyable regardless.

Title: Trial and Error (by Maldoror)
Primary Pairing: 1+2
Length: 15 chapters
A hilarious chronicle of Heero's self-assigned mission to try and set up his companions. A lot of misunderstandings; I laughed so hard I had to take a break to make the pain go away.

Katekyo Hitman Reborn [all]

Title: Plus One (by Quillslinger)
Series: Katekyo Hitman Reborn
Primary Pairing: 8059
oneshot. Yamamoto tricks Gokudera into attending a friend's wedding; Yamamoto's father makes an appearance.

Kingdom Hearts [all]

Axel/Roxas



Title: Light Underneath (by VIII of XIII)
Series: Kingdom Hearts
Primary Pairing: Axel/Roxas
6 chapters. I'm not typically a fan of amnesia-fic, but this was done in a way that made it tolerable. There is a deeper plot at work than just the pairing. Some things seem a little ridiculous, but given that this fic was influenced by American comics, it's fitting and forgivable.

Title: Gentian Blue (by mochawhip)
Series: Kingdom Hearts
Primary Pairing: Axel/Roxas
one-shot. Axel is an artist, Roxas is his neighbor. A short, bittersweet story. The grammar is a tad inconsistent, but it's well worth the read.

Riku/Sora



Title: Lose Yourself (by D-chan)
Series: Kingdom Hearts
Primary Pairing: Riku/Sora
prologue + 8 chapters + epilogue. In a fandom overrun by highschool AUs and lighthearted teenage romance, this fic is one of a kind. Based on the book of the same title, it's a psychological thriller and full of twisted romance. Kairi-lovers might be a little disturbed.

Other/General



Title: Scheherazade (by Luc Court)
Series: Kingdom Hearts
Primary Pairing: none; focus on Namine
one-shot. A cute story about how the Organization takes care of Namine; the individual members through her eyes.

Title: Absence (by Casey V.)
Series: Kingdom Hearts
Primary Pairing: none; focus on the Twilight Town kids
one-shot. When Roxas is gone, there's just an empty space left-- Hayner, Pence, and Olette try to understand it.

Harry Potter [all]
(d)evil
quatrepolar
Title: Doppelganger (by schizometriclanguage)
Series: Harry Potter
Primary Pairing: Sirius+Remus, Remus focus
Set after Sirius' fall through the veil, and focuses on how Remus copes, with a surprising element of plot. Follows canon and nobody is brought back from the dead. OCs are well developed and likeable.

Title: Hark! the dogs howl! (by Froody)
Series: Harry Potter
Primary Pairing: Sirius+Remus
23 chapters + epilogue. This is yet another venture into the Mauraders' Hogwarts years, and includes all the usual events. What sets it aside is the brilliant handling of "the Snape incident" and the emotions involved. Actual pairing fluff is minimal.
