Why this must be read:

This story is about how George is a gentlemen. He is good and kind and thinks low about himself and really, I think this story is pretty much about the guy getting the girl. Which is a nice thing to read about every once and a while.

Excerpt: His mother taught him manners, taught him to be polite to women. You open doors for them and buy them dinner and pat their shoulder when they cry and you love them, even when they break your heart, because some girls can't help but do that. Pick up their books when they drop them, pull out their chairs, never make lewd comments, never let your eyes linger below their neckline, women have eyes, they have brains, they should be respected.

Why this must be read:

This story covers the beginning of something, and it's wonderful it watch their relationship develop and become more, and how it's just that easy. I find it interesting to read stories of how Izzie and George could have been done well, through it makes me more sad about the fact it wasn't.

Excerpt: Intimacy that just is.

He reaches out, and she bends with his winds so she can keep him from breaking. He has her to fall back on, and they share confidences and fears and gossip; they bond over bad horror movies and popcorn and comparing notes on surgical techniques.

They become better friends.

I was surprised when I realized I had yet to rec this. It's such a wonderful and interesting concept and really shows two different 'worlds' coming together well. Very unusual and very good.

Excerpt: George was shy, and geeky, and easily embarrassed, and sometimes when Izzie looked at him she could only see Alex, her Alex, and had to walk away.

This is my last rec and more so it's probably my favorite story from the Grey's Anatomy verse. It is the sequel to something and it's even better then that. And for a while I really didn't think that possible, but then I found this sequel and, well, wow. It's a bit tougher, a bit harder, a bit more cynical and a bit more sweeter. This is how I imagine the characters, I think this story best portrays them. I think a lot of this story.

Excerpt: They had made plans to watch a game the next night, but when George showed up with a case of Miller, Alex had cracked the door half-naked and just starred at him expressionless until George heard Izzie laugh somewhere in the apartment and got the clue that it was over.

He drank most of the case himself that night, and apologized drunkenly to Burke when he puked on the rug.

Why this must be read:

This story is what really brought me into the Grey's Anatomy fandom, it is the definition of wonderful. It's Alex's and George's love story
and it is fantastic. And it's so much like the show, like an episode or two from George's point of view and, it is the best.

Excerpt: Alex was already asleep when George left, so after only half a second's pause, he picked his alarm clock up off the night stand and turned it off. Just because he could.

Why this must be read:

This is the George fic. This shows you why you should love him if you don't and why you do love him if you do and it's amazing. And this IS the show, it's just another episode written down from George's point of view so the characters are so in characters and it's wonderful.

Excerpt: George just nods his head. When he grows up, he wants to be badass like Dr Bailey.

Why this must be read:

Izzie and Denny were one of the nicest and sweetest pairing on the show and this story really shows that. It's nice to see Denny, well, courting Izzie and it's like the scenes we didn't get to see showing the build up to them loving each other so much.

Excerpt: Alex looks up from the chart then – aha, Denny thinks, got your attention. He clicks his pen like he's cocking a gun. "I'm saying you can walk to the cafeteria. But if you're asking if you can have sex, that's running a really big risk that your heart would essentially – let me use layman's terms for you -- explode."

"In other words, you're telling me not to do it."

Why this must be read:

Another nearly Supernatural crossover but the thing with these crossovers is that they work and the idea of Denny and John being one in the same is interesting and can, as this fic shows, be well done. And this is set after The Prom when Izzie is an intern again and it's a little bit heart breaking. In a good way.

Excerpt: The first thing Izzie thinks when she steps into John Winters' room is that George said kind of. He said that the patient looked kind of like Denny.

He lied.

Pairing: Izzie Stevens/Denny Duquette
Author on LJ: trollprincess

Why this must be read:

This story is all about Denny and it's great. It's also in kind a Supernaturnal crossover but more than anything it's about how Denny Duquette came to be and how Izzie helped shape him. It's a must read for anyone who loved Denny or loves the show.

Excerpt: Denny is ten years younger than you and losing the beard is just the touch, and if you've got to lose that to make yourself younger, then shedding that dark heavy sadness that drapes your eyes like velvet curtains is a must, too, while you're at it. You crack jokes more. You smile. You let yourself flirt without guilt for the first time in years.

The intern looks like Mary when she tilts her head just so and grins at you, and that helps.

Pairing: Addison Montgomery/Derek Shepherd
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: http://socalwriter.tripod.com/
Why this must be read:

I'm not a huge Derek and Meredith fan, so don't expect to see any recs of the sort, but I am an Addison fan and well, a well done Addison story can really have me loving anyone, and that's not to say that I really like Derek but in this story he's okay. Or at least learning how to be okay and I wish upon this this is how they had done it on the show.

Excerpt: She sighed, frustrated. "You said that you chose me. You said you wanted this marriage. I have given you out after out, and you stayed. So all I'm doing, Derek, is asking you to mean it. I can accept that you care about Meredith, even if it crushes me to think that my husband of 11 years could run off and... and fall for some stranger in a matter of months, no matter what I did to you. But all right... you care for her. But you chose me. And if you didn't mean it... if you don't want me, the person standing here right now... then damn it, you need to admit it, because I can't do this anymore. I just... I can't do it anymore."

George and Derek is one of the strangest pairing you could have and yet them together makes one of the best Grey's Anatomy story I've read. It swaps Meredith and George around and it does it well, I was entertained and amused the whole story.

Why this must be read:

You MUST read this before it's Addison and House, together. Because it's a well done five things story and because it's good. I think it's pretty obvious that I am a fan of the 'strange' or 'unusual' pairings and this is one of the stories that helps explain why. It's just a short, quick look at five aspects of their relationship and, without a doubt, makes you want more.

Excerpt: Sometimes, Addison looks at this relationship and thinks she's as crazy as everyone else believes her to be.

Why this must be read:

One of the good and fun things about Grey's Anatomy fanfiction is that it crossovers with other fandoms very well and quite easily too (and that's my warning that you are going to get a few crossover fics from me). This story captured my attention from the get-go and it's just nice. It's nice and simple and very touching and you don't need to know the other fandom, SGA, to enjoy this story you'll just enjoy it because it's nice, and truly nice and sweet stories are not as easy to find anymore.

Excerpt: His parents let him go play at her house one night, and his brothers teased him about having a girlfriend, but it was worth it. She had lots of dolls, and he thought they were going to play house, but instead she took him to the back yard, attached a Barbie to the kind of rocket you assemble at home, and set it off.

Barbie had third degree burns, and George had to wrap her arm in gauze. For the next few weeks, every time he came over, he and Laura would check to see if Barbie had had an amazing recovery. She hadn't, but Laura said that even just not dying was really impressive, and George should be a doctor when he grew up.

George grinned. That was so much cooler than driving a truck.

Why this must be read:

Rare pairs are something of a favourite of mine and this pairing is rare - and even better it's a well written story. Two things I really enjoy. Addison and George are not two characters you generally think of together and they haven't even shared that much air time together but this story shows you that they could work and they could work well. The style is also interesting with flash backs of how they began their relationship woven into the story.

Excerpt: George didn’t bother to speak anymore. Instead he moved on to find his jacket and backpack in the living area of Addison’s suite. He paused at the door, wondering what was appropriate to finish off one-night stands. Meredith would probably give the best pointers, but even the thought of her left him feeling a little sick. For her part, Addison stayed in the bedroom – a place he dared not approach again by his own volition.

Scoffing slightly at the ridiculousness of it all, he finally opened the door and left.

Fandom: THE WEST WING
Pairing: Josh/Amy backstory, Josh/Donna current. Derek/Addison (from Grey's Anatomy)
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] callalillykaye
Author Website:
Why this must be read: This is something a little different. It's a crossover piece between The West Wing and Grey's Anatomy, a friendship between Amy Gardner and Addison Montgomery Shepherd. Knowledge of one show or the other is fine, but both is helpful. It provides a convincing backstory to Amy and Josh's relationship in college, as well as her present-day feelings about Josh and Donna. Great characterization, and the friendship between Amy and Addison fits into both canons.

“Of course, not to your knowledge, Amy. It’s a secret society. The whole point is that it’s not to your knowledge.”

“Joshua…”

“All I’m saying is that the Secretary of the Interior, the Secretary of Commerce, the Vice President…all Skull and Bones guys.”

“Also, Republicans,” Addison counters. Amy has figured out how to make Josh laugh, how to push his buttons, how to turn him on.

Addison knows how to shut him up.
