3rd-May-2010 09:38 am "A Cappella " by Kit Spooner (Rated T)

Hi, I'm Haina and I will be reccing for Card Captor Sakura this month.

Pairing: Eriol/Tomoyo
Length: 52,000+
Author on LJ: [ profile] pitofthesloth
Author Website: Kit Spooner on

Why this must be read: This is one of the first fic I've ever read and it has always been one of my favorites. I think it is the classic story in the Eriol/Tomoyo fanon. The writing is beautiful and, unlike many Eriol/Tomoyo fics out there, the story is believable. Tomoyo goes to England amidst family tragedy to find the one person who actually understands her sadness. If you have been in the Card Captor Sakura fandom and have never read this fic, this is the time to do it! This is a gem.

Fandom: Card Captor Sakura
Character/Pairing: Yamazaki/Chiharu, Sakura/Syaoran, Eriol/Tomoyo

Why this must be read:

Yamazaki is possibly the most criminally underused character in the CCS series. Tin makes up for this, a little bit, by writing a fic in which Yamazaki teaches sex-ed. Given his propensity for making stuff up, you can imagine the results...! The explanations he gives would be hilarious to anyone, even those unfamiliar with the series.
    "Indeed, ladies and gentlemen," he continued into the stunned silence. "Which means, following my logic, that if you were to enact this Position, you and your partner have to be Sixty-Nine Degrees apart."

    The class boggled.

    "Is that--is that even _possible?" Syaoran asked. "I mean, how the hell do they do that? I mean, I like math and all but... I mean..."

    Yamazaki smirked. "Obviously, Li-kun," he drawled, "they use a--" And he whipped out something from his jacket. "--PROTRACTOR!" He slammed said object on the blackboard with happy force. Everyone jumped. Even Eriol looked nervous.

4th-May-2007 01:47 pm ...and last, Hope by Luriko-Ysabeth [G]
I'll be driving for the Cardcaptor Sakura fandom, along with the House one (that's a lot of reccing for one gal, in a month!). To be honest, it’s been over four years since I was last actively reading CCS fic, so my recommendations are of the "classic," "tried and true" variety.

That said, if you, the readers, have any suggestions, I’m all ears! Be forewarned, however, that I won’t read Sakura/Syaoran. Yeah. Not cool, I know. I'm game for anything else.

Pairing: Sakura/Syaoran, Tomoyo/Sakura
Author on LJ: Doesn’t have one
Author Website: The Coming Adventure of Elaine and Miyu
Why this must be read:

I’ve always been a fan of Luriko-Ysabeth’s writing because not only does she have a lyrical, soothing style, but she also knows how to pack a whallop of a story. In “…and last, Hope,” she plays with the idea of Pandora’s box and comes up with an intriguing explanation as to why Sakura didn’t forget Syaoran at the end of the second movie.

It’s a hopeful fic, but also a little bit sad. Then again, isn’t hope always a bit tragic?
