Fandom: A Room With a View
Pairing: Charlotte Bartlett/Eleanor Lavish
Word count: 868
Author on LJ: I don't know, sadly.
Author website: As above.

Why this must be read: Another lovely, believable take on the Lavish/Bartlett pairing, this short snippet perfectly captures the mood and feel of Forster's Florence -- or at least, the characters' perceptions of it, as a wild, colourful place, where even the most uptight person can let her hair down.

Fandom: A Room With a View
Pairing: George Emerson/Freddy Honeychurch
Word count: ~1500

Author website: Fics at Skyehawke

Why this must be read: Much as I like Lucy/George (which is a lot), there is something to be said for the sheer charming cuteness of George/Freddy. This short, steamy piece is both hot and delightfully-written -- do give it a try!

Why this must be read: Miss Bartlett/Miss Lavish is one of the most obvious femmeslash pairings I can think of, and this story does it more than justice. It's a perfect coda to the novel, wonderfully-written and true to the characters. I adore stories in which lonely people find happiness, and this one made me sigh in satisfaction.

5th-Oct-2010 04:18 pm A Room With a View fic: "And Have Their Chance of Joy" by Penguin
Hello, my name is Miss M. and I'll be reccing fic for E.M. Forster's novel A Room With a View this month. Though not an active fandom per se, there is a number of excellent stories based on this canon, and I hope to share some of them with you.

: A Room With a View
Pairing: Lucy Honeychurch/George Emerson
Word count: 1934

Author website: Fics on Archive of Our Own

Why this must be read: The characterisation here is wonderful, and the writing is lovely, very true to the tone of the novel and its portrayal of the Lucy/George romance. The piece is romantic without being fluffy, not shying away from the fact that love often comes at a cost -- in this case, the disapproval Lucy faces after having made her choice.
