Your Weekly Fanfiction Recommendation (Except for the one week I forgot)
Welcome back everyone to the column in which I tell you stuff you should read, or should have already read. And this week, I promise the recommendations won't kill any kittens.
First this week, let's talk about DrMcDuck, shall we? I'm sure many of you have read his/her (I think her, but I'm not sure) stuff, and if you haven't, well, that's what I'm here for.
A long time ago, way back in late 2008, DrMcDuck appeared on the scene with their first one-shot. It was good, but what to come was even better.
McDuck began an alternate universe that branches off from canon around mid-season 2. There' s some excellent Chuck/Sarah stuff, and in this story, the WT/WT is handled, very, very well. As a fan of the couple, you're always left wanting more, but not in a bad way. And the story surrounding the romance is entertaining to carry the story on its own, so you get a double-dip of entertainment. It all started with a story called Chuck vs Sweet Home Alabama, and that's what I'm recommending to you today. But by all means, once you've read that one, keep reading.
I'll admit, a part of my motivation for recommending this is in hopes that you guys will read the series (which is still incomplete), and beg the author to come back and finish it, and that there will be enough of us to garner just that. Yeah, I'm evil like that. I always have other motivations. Welcome to the world of Wep. Heh. Anyway, go read Sweet Home Alabama today!
As for my one-shot recommendation, this week I'm going to pick one that follows a theme that is rather common in fanfic in general, and that's seen many times in Chuck-fic in particular.
The fairy-tale version of Chuck and Sarah's story has been done many times over. It's been done well by Mystlynx, and it's been done very well by ne71 (by Casey no less, telling the story to Anna via IM in his fic Emoticon), but no one has done it better than FromPen2Paper.
In her early 2008 story, The Prince and the Intersect, FP2P details a more mature Chuck Bartowski relating to story of Chuck and Sarah to his young daughter via a fairy-tale. There are some awesome cutaways to the actual events, and the story itself is really sweet, and well told. But then, everything FP2P did was pretty awesome, so that should come as no surprise.
So after you're read Sweet Home Alabama, head straight to the Prince and the Intersect. I don't think either story will let you down. That's all for this week, and I hope you'll join me again next time in "What the Frak is Wep Reading?"
