I need to not do Secret Slasha next year, 'cause I keep writing not good fic.
I forget exactly what I requested, but I got Dawn/Olivia ("Jewel Mirror") by overthetiber. Not a pairing I would have ever considered (which is saying something, right?) but I love both characters, so I was excited to read it. Definitely some interesting stuff going on there, and some really outstanding bits.
Edit: The next story I read was the one written for Ari: "Unto the Breach" by Dolores -- Jenny/Joyce (another pairing I never would have thought of). Bravo.
Edit2: Shockingly (ha), the third fic I read was the first listed fic Ari wrote: "Amazing Grace" (Nina/Tara), which I also really like.
Yay for pairings I wouldn't have thought of, and ways of doing them that I wouldn't have thought of, and well-written to boot.
