Your Weekly Fanfiction Recommendation (Except for the one week I forgot)
First, we'll talk about Chuck vs Fulcrum, the lone serial attempted by serial one-shot expert ne71. Now this, like some of my other recommendations, is something I'm sure most of you have read. But this column is all about talking about the good, not just the unfound.
ne71, in my opinion, handles comedy better than anyone else in the fandom. And coming from someone that prides himself on being funny, you know that was hard for me to say. But in this tale, he mixes his normal hilarity (and there are more than a few LOL moments) with good action, a thrilling sequence, pop-culture references, and as always, great dialogue.
My favorite moment from this story? Chuck decides he needs to be "sensitive" to Sarah's needs, and let her talk, so he borrows a sweater from Devon. That sweater still makes me laugh. Anyway, I won't bore you with a bunch of detail here. The fact is, if you haven't read this (and if you haven't, where have you been?), you seriously need to go read it, now. And if you have? Go read it again. It's still as good as it was the first time, I promise.
My second recommendation this week is a crossover fic. No! Wait, don't stop reading just yet. I know a lot of readers shy away from crossovers. More times than not, it's just an excuse to hook some character from one show up with some character from another. But this one is different. Well, okay, this one is different because it features, in my opinion, the most tragically underused Chuck character, both in fic, and in canon.
Anna Wu stars in this story, and for those familiar with Julia Ling's resume, it makes a ton of sense. Also, this gives me my first opportunity to feature a story outside of FFnet. This one from LiveJournal. Anna's Secret by klutzy_girl is a fun little one-shot, and I hope you guys will give it a try, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
That's all for this week. Until next time, this is Wep, signing off. you guys are awesome. Peace.
