30th-Nov-2010 02:30 pm My Own Private Riot by voodoochild (NC-17)
Here's my last rec for Lie to Me this month. It's been fun driving the van!

Fandom: LIE TO ME
Pairing: Cal/Gillian
Length: 1710 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] bluerosefairy
Author Website: Author's page on the Archive of Our Own
Why this must be read:

Fic summary: Gillian gets her control back after the break-in.

This is a missing scene from "Delinquent." voodoochild homes in on the loving friendship between Gillian and Cal, which resonates through the fic.

28th-Nov-2010 04:17 pm Watch and Wait and Wonder by emmademarais (PG-13)
Fandom: LIE TO ME
Pairing: gen; Ria Torres
Length: 600 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] emmademarais
Author Website: The Darkest Corners
Why this must be read:

Torres-centric fics are relatively rare. This character fic examines Ria's feelings about the Lightman Group in the light of her own background history.

26th-Nov-2010 10:37 pm Five Things Gillian Foster Has Never Told Anyone by Pellucid (PG-13)
Fandom: LIE TO ME
Pairing: gen
Length: 1560 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] pellucid
Author Website: Author's fic tag
Why this must be read:

Gillian Foster is a tough nut to crack, because on the show she is so self-contained, and Cal tends to steal most of the spotlight. Pellucid takes the canon information about Gillian and expands it to provide a sympathetic examination of what makes her tick.

26th-Nov-2010 10:31 pm VID REC: Lie to Me: Fields of Gold
Vidder: sweetevangeline
Musical artist: Eva Cassidy
Pairing: Cal/Gillian
Vidder on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] not_as_we
Vidder's website: sweetevangeline's Channel on YouTube
Why this vid kicks ass:

This AU vid (warning for implied character death) tells a moving story of love found and lost. The editing and black and white footage works to show a memory of happier times.

Fandom: LIE TO ME
Pairing: gen
Length: 1460 words

Why this must be read:

One of my favorite aspects of the show is the realistic father-daughter relationship between Cal and Emily. This fic captures their bond with warmth, humor, and great characterization.

20th-Nov-2010 03:43 pm Sum of the Parts by starfirefic (NC-17)
Fandom: LIE TO ME
Pairing: background Cal/Zoe
Length: about 4000
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] starfirefic
Author Website: starfirefic
Why this must be read:

Summary from the fic: Cal's always known he's not a nice man - he could hardly do his job properly if he was. But he'd liked to think on some level that, on balance, he was at least a good one. Season 2 gave us a harder, edgier Cal. This fic examines Cal's thoughts before and during a key scene in the S2 premiere "The Core Of It". Sharp and harrowing like the scene in the episode, it adds another layer of understanding to Cal's psyche. Please heed the warnings on the fic.

15th-Nov-2010 03:27 pm Time, Tide and Cal Lightman by edana_ni_emer (PG)
Fandom: LIE TO ME/DOCTOR WHO
Pairing: gen
Length: 1330 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] edana_ni_emer
Author Website: none found
Why this must be read:

When I think about it, a Lie to Me/Doctor Who crossover makes perfect sense. Who wouldn't want to witness a showdown between Cal Lightman and the Doctor in any of his incarnations? Oh, the possibilities. [livejournal.com profile] edana_ni_emer teases the reader with some of them when Cal meets the (Tenth) Doctor for the first time, after the Doctor drops Loker off at work. Funny, and with food for thought.

14th-Nov-2010 12:00 pm Good Girl by her_pseudonym (NC-17)
First, we'll kick off with a classic Cal/Gillian fic.

Fandom: LIE TO ME
Pairing: Cal/Gillian
Length: 15,000 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] her_pseudonym
Author Website: A Room of Her Own
Why this must be read:

Summary from the fic: Cal loved taking control just as much as she enjoyed surrendering it. A happy coincidence that meant she was now having the hottest sex of her life. With her best friend. [livejournal.com profile] her_pseudonym has a well-deserved reputation for writing brilliantly-characterized Cal and Gillian and smoking-hot sex. Plus, she wonderfully balances angst, fluff and smut.
