1. circumstance by agent otter.
i don't even know what to say about this. it was published about a year ago, takes place in the future, and is sydney/vaughn at it's finest. incredibly well-written and just a pleasure to read. i think the first line of it describes it best: "Time is the longest distance between two places." -- Tennessee Williams
2. the domestication of a wild rose by cognacgirl.
i read this recently (after i started reading fic again) and i was absolutely astounded by it. it's a sark/sydney story, and there's a splash of simon in there, too. takes place in the future, and is also described as au. either way, i find it incredibly believable, which is the appeal of well-written sarkney -- the fact that someone's able to make something that's so impossible, given the circumstances, believeable. back to this one, though...it's very well written and it keeps you captivated. even if you think sarkney makes the baby jesus cry, i think you should give this one a chance. the author is amazing -- i absolutely adore her work.
and awesome idea for a community -- i never read much fic because it's so hard to sift through everything to get to the good stuff. this makes reading that much easier for lazy bums like m'self.
