31st-Dec-2011 02:43 pm Ghost, by SacredNagChampa (R)

My last recommention. I could have post so many recs because there are still a huge load of wonderful fics on Ao3, fanfiction.net and on Livejournal but my RL didn't really want to accept that I need internet time this month. Nevertheless I hope you had fun with my recs even if there were some posting breaks or posting spams. Also I really hope you found some fics which let persuaded you to try out this fandom. Even if it's really small and not so active on LJ it is worth to take a closer look. :-)

My last rec of the month is one of my absolute favorites and written by one of the fandom BNFs.

Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Justin/Alex
Length: 28.416 words
Author on LJ: no
Author Website: Fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

This fic is an AU in the canon-verse. What would happen if Alex wish during the movie has a different consequence? One where she needs to realize what her real true wish is? Could she lives with the consequences? Her new life? Her memories?

Angst, then some confusion, new angst and then ... eh what? Yes, that will be reaction but the end will make everything better. Also the epilogue is really cute. ^_^

I really could rec every fic of this author so read also her other fics! Her writing style is wonderful!

Ghost (FF.net)
--> She closed her eyes tightly and gripped the cold stone until it was cutting into the soft skin on the palm of her hand, she just had to bring Justin and Max back finally she said, “I want everything to be exactly the way it was.

31st-Dec-2011 02:33 pm Days were slipping past, by omens (PG-13)
Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Justin/Alex
Length: 51.282 words
Author on LJ: none
Author Website: fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

One of the few really long fictions in this fandom and maybe it is no surprise that the fic plot concentrates on the angst factor of a incest relationships. Years over years and they struggle with their feeling. Alex is the one who wants to try it but should they really do it? Justin isn't sure. What is with their family? What is if it is only a crush? Could they maybe be happy with other people?

It's one of the classic angst fics and I must admit... in some scenes I want to scream because of my frustation. I only want to see Justin and Alex happy and together but this wouldn't be realistic. The end is another reason for my frustration. It fits to the tone of the story but oh how I hate the author after my first time to read the fic.

I need to read the fic a second, a third and finally a fourth time to think 'okay, yes, this is the only way to end the fic... even if I don't like it.' Maybe you have a similar reaction but to see this you need to read the fic so try it! Maybe you will also scream for frustation or maybe you will love the fic because of the realism. Who knows?

31st-Dec-2011 02:28 pm In lumine Tuo videbimus lumen by SacredNagChampa (PG-13)
Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Justin/Alex
Length: 5.920 words
Author on LJ: no
Author Website: fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

The angst which you maybe missed in my last rec can you find in this fic. Religious, biology, society norms - all these reasons against a relationship between Justin and Alex will be mention and it will break your heart. I can promise this. But I can also promise you another thing. The end even if it isn't a normal happy end will give you a smile. It isn't perfect but it is the only way for Justin and Alex.

One of the best angst fanfiction of this fandom and one of my favorites!

In lumine Tuo videbimus lumen (FF.net)
--> She hated herself. And how acquainted she had become with words like: taboo, abhorrent, incest. Because that’s what it was. This sick thing inside of her.

Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Justin/Alex
Length: 7.093 words
Author on LJ: none
Author Website: Fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

Cute and funny without much incest drama. Alex and Justin both work already and as Alex visits Justin at work she realize he is the new, young hot teacher with various students who have a crush for him. Naturally in Alex opinion this is the perfect situation for jokes... and maybe more. Even in such short fics Omens shows us that s/he is really one of the best WoWP-writers. Funny, hot and various other adjectives like that are perfect to describe the story. :)

Don’t stand so close to me (FF.net)
--> “Does someone have a little crush on the teacher?”

Pairing: Justin/Alex
Length: 23.208 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] amathela
Author Website: none
Why this must be read:

Another [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang-fic which is also a fusion. A fusion with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Alex as a slayer is amazing but all my love for Justin as her Giles. Alone this idea is worth a read. The voices are wonderful IC and the relationship between Justin and Alex is similar to their one in the series. She doesn't want to learn, he wants to teach her something. She does something stupid and he needs to help her. It's like a real episode of WoWP only with vampires... oh wait, I mean bad vampires.

Never Kill A Boy On The First Date (Dreamwidth), Ao3, LJ
--> In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer. In this case, she's Alex Russo - one girl in all the world born with the strength and skill to hunt the vampires, to stop the spread of their evil, blah blah blah. She also might be kind of falling in love with her brother. But first, she has an apocalypse to avert.

Why this vid kicks ass:

I must admit I mostly want to rec this video because I love the song. The lyrics fit almost to a T to the story line of this relationship. The choice of the scenes is great and even if the vidder couldn't show completly the drama/angst of the song it is still an angsty video where lots of happy scenes of the show transform in moments full of angst through the music and the combination of scenes.

Pairing: Justin/Alex
Length: 1:05
Vidder on LJ: no idea
Vidder's Website:
Why this vid kicks ass:

The video is really short but nevertheless it's enough to show a more... adult side of Justin/Alex. The vidder used a combination of WoWP-scenes and scenes of Skins. The music is only background for a dialogue of the Wizards of Waverly Place movie. Nevertheless together with the choice of scenes it is enough to show why so many people love this incest pairing.

Sorry for the waiting time. I finally got my laptop back with my prepared recs. Because of the (briefly) loss of my laptop I will now post a rec spam. Sorry for this! Also the recs aren't betaed. I hope my English isn't too bad.

...okay I must also admit that I really want to forget the video rec day. You know, fan-made videos and Germany have a... funny relationship which basically has the result that almost all videos are blocked. Almost every day I could delete another video in my playlist so it was hard to find a rec but I tried my best and tried to find for all main genres/pairing a video.

Why this vid kicks ass:

My first (video)rec for today is for the main pairing of the fandom. The quality of the scenes is good and mostly similar to DVD quality. The video shows us some of the most beautiful scenes between these two and combines this with a beautiful song. Okay the choice of interpret is clichee but it is a Disney-fandom so it's really no surprise that there are lots of videos with Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers and co.

Sorry for the long time without recs. My laptop broke down and my brother doesn't want me to borrow his computer so often. I hope that I get my own one back after Christmas and then I will again post a rec every day!

Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Gen but with hints of Justin/Alex
Length: 8.518 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] save_vs_magic
Author Website: fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

Today my country celebrates christmas so it's the perfect time to rec this fic. You could call it a crossover but it's more a fic where Alex and Justin use a spell and meet so the characters of a well-known christmas movie. I'm a huge fan of this movie and watch it again every year so you can't imagine how happy I was to find this fic. Especially because I sometimes have the same wish/problem like Justin... But no, I don't want to spoil the fic.

But even if you don't know the movie (which you should really change! try to watch it in the next days!) the fic gives you a slightly warm fluffy feeling of christmas and you will have no problem to follow the storyline.
[livejournal.com profile] save_vs_magic describes beautiful the scenery with the snow, the coldness and Alex who wants to wear the new winter collection and Justin who trys to fit in. The dialogue between Justin and Alex and later between them and the villain of the movie are perfect. Funny and IC and nevertheless charming.

This is really a cute fic who shows perfect the sense of christmas... or that what Alex understands by this.

And with these last words it's time for handing out of the presents. :)

Wizards Vs Christmas (LJ), FF.net
--> Justin and Alex magically transport themselves back to Christmas Eve, 1945, to finally put right a wrong that's been nagging at Justin his entire life. But does Alex have an ulterior motive for tagging along?

Why this must be read:

I must admit I was unsure if I should rec this fic or not. I love how the author describes Zekes thoughts and feelings in so few words. Alex is a little bit ooc but then I thought... okay this is the nice Alex of S4 and then it fits better.

At the end I chose to rec this fic because I love the pairing and this is the only good fic with it. Really, every other fic with them is either extremely ooc or horrible written. So I was very happy to find the fic and even if it's not super amazing or perfect I want to rec the fanfiction because it saved my faith that these two can fit together.

Author Website: fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

A new boy wants to bully Justin. Alex isn't amused...

The POV of Toby, the newcomer, is great. Through his eyes as an outsider he gives us an amazing look into Justin's and Alex's sibling-relationship which is a mix of love and rivalry. They drive each other crazy but nobody else is allowed to do this. Toby needs to learn this and how Alex teaches him this lesson is simple but more than fitting for her. The fic shows us the evil mastermind called Alex which we all love perfectly. :)

As the Worm Turns (LJ), (FF.net)
--> For about half a second, Toby felt uneasiness slither down his spine. He would've almost called it fear, except there was no reason for Toby Gant to feel scared because some skinny girl he could break like a twig was watching him.

Pairing: Miranda/Alex
Length: 265 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] kaiwynn
Author Website: [livejournal.com profile] fateful_hour
Why this must be read:

In the episode "First Kiss" we get to know Miranda who is Justin's first girlfriend. He has problems to kiss her so that Alex helps him. It's a great episode and Miranda is a great character but sadly this is one of few fics with her.

The writing style is short. So short that the reader often use more his own imagination instead of the ideas of the authors but this is the reason that I love the fic. Yes, I admit, I would be happy if the fic would be longer but still... There are only so few words and still you learn and see so much about Alex in this fic. Try it! Even if you don't like femslash, you will love the idea of Miranda/Alex after this fic. :)

Why this must be read:

I must admit the first time I saw the fic I didn't want to read it. Why? Simple. I know nothing about Terminator. I saw never one of these movies and I also don't know the fic but still I read the fic and wow... thank god I did this. Even if you don't know a thing about Terminator you can understand everything so that you can enjoy this amazing fic!

It's one of the BigBangs for [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang so be warned. The fic has major character death, mentions of violence including sexual assault and some curse words. Nevertheless it is under my Top 5 of the best WoWP fics. It has drama, angst, a little bit UST, amazing characters who learned the hard way to grow up and an amazing writing style.

The development of the Justin/Alex relationship suited the tempo of the story and there is even an solution for the incest problem at the end of the fic.

I must admit even if the epilogue is a little bit confusing it's one of the best apocalypse fics I ever read. (Also I adore the fanmix and the cover for the fic...).
Btw, there will be more apocalypse fic recs this month. I don't know why but this is one of the favorite genres in this fandom...

The Only Way Out Is Through (LJ)
--> Even after their world is shattered by Judgment Day, Justin and Alex Russo find there is still magic in the world – and miracles can still happen.

Author Website: Ao3
Why this must be read:

I was unsure if I should rec this fic or the sequel but you need to read this fic to understand the other one so... let's start.

First the idea of a crossover between these two shows is amazing. They are both in my Top 20 of the best tv shows and I adore all characters. The author captured their voices perfect.
The same is to say about the humour of the two shows. It's a perfect combination of geeky humour with a little bit more childish jokes.

Second the plot! I would never have thought of the idea to use a convention for a meeting but it fits. Also it's the perfect background for a healthy rivalry between the TBBT guys and Zeke/Justin and a friendship between Alex/Penny who bear the misery to know these guys together. *g*

The fic really captured the charme of both shows so if you love TBBT or WoWP or both... then the fic is definitly worth trying out! :)

Why this must be read:

The author shows the reader only few moments in the lives of Justin and Alex but there are enough. Combined with the writing style, which is more poetic than epic, it is the perfect mix to transfer a feeling of heartbreak and uneasiness with a touch of hope.

Pairing: Gen
Length: 1.337 words
Author on LJ: no
Author Website: fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

A fluffy fic which shows us the sibling relationship between Alex and Justin in the past and the present. Both scenes have the same topic. One of the most important questions for everyone children, crayons or markers? Unsurprisingly Alex and Justin have different opinions about this topic.

Cute is the perfect word for this story which gets a bonus cookie point for the wonderful use of Max at the end. Such scenes are the reason why I love Max so much.

Coloring (FF.net)
--> Alex and Justin argue over coloring, not for the first time.

11th-Dec-2011 01:31 pm Lies You Tell by TheOceanBreathesSalty (PG-13)

Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Justin/Alex, Justin/Harper, Alex/OC
Length: 3.436 words
Author on LJ: no
Author Website: fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

Harper sees how Justin's and Alex's relationship develop but she doesn't want to see it. She loves Justin.

I have a weakness for this fic because of the POV. I love Harper and the author gives her a more realistic twist. Yes, she is nice. Yes, she is cute but she is also a teenager girl with a crush. She is unsure but she knows what she wants and forgets the consequences during her fight for it. She only does want she thinks she needs to do.

The author chose an interesting way to demonstrate Harper's feeling. Normally I have problems with the second-person narrative but here it fits. Even if I think the end solution is too easy the fic deserves a rec because of the not so common writing style. :)

Lies You Tell (FF.net)
--> You see it but don't want to see the truth. (Jalex through Harper's eyes)

Pairing: Harper/Alex
Length: 2.708 words
Author on LJ: [info]amathela
Author Website: none
Why this must be read:

It's time for another bit of femslash. In this fic Alex tries not to use magic for one day and this is a lot harder than she thought. Thankfully Harper is there to help and to remind her that she doesn't need magic. Even if it would make the school field trip more fun and maybe less dramatic...

Alex and Harper are... cute in this fic. Really, there is no other word for them. It's a fluffy, sweet fic about their friendship which transforms into more without big drama. The dialogue is similar to the ones in the show and the writing style is purely and simple like the relationship of these two. :-)

Amusement Shark Rides (LJ)
--> Alex tries not to use magic. And fails.

Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Justin/Alex
Length: 8.116 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] amathela
Author Website: none
Why this must be read:

My new rec is a fill of a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] omgjustinalex and I can only say... I want more like these fills.

The story shows us an Alex, who visits Justin to meet college boys but finds something complete different. For example... A Justin who goes to partys or a Justin with friends who have a totally wrong idea of her and Justins relationship... or not?

There are various reasons why I love the fic but the main reason is [livejournal.com profile] amathela's Alex. She is cheeky, self-centered but still unsure of herself and her relationship with her brother. It's Canon!Alex with only a hint of nice Fanon!Alex.

The interactions between Alex and Justin's friends are short but still have a major impact on her because they help to push her thoughts and insights into the direction which everyone saw... except herself.

So... if you love slight cases of denial or relationships where everyone knows the truth except the pair then you should read this fic.

And Our Future's Looking Bright (LJ)
--> There are, like, three thousand colleges in the country, and Justin still picks one right in New York City.

5th-Dec-2011 08:42 pm Prey by noor_us_sabah (PG-13)
Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Mason/Alex
Length: 4.043 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] noor_us_sabah
Author Website: none
Why this must be read:

I mentioned in my fandom overview that you either love or hate Mason and his relationship with Alex. Personally I think he is... okay but I don't like his relationship with Alex. Why? It often looks too manipulative to be real and Alex changed too much of herself because of him.

This fic uses this idea of Mason and the Mason/Alex relationship to show us a darker side. The author thematized the abuse carefully and didn't forget to mention the consequences. Alex is shown as a victim but also as a survivor. She isn't weak but like lots of other people in such relationships she needs time to realize that she isn't to blame.

Flashbacks show us moments which showcase how slowly you can slide into such a relationship and how easy it's to blame yourself. It's heartbreaking to read how Alex loses herself and everything which made her Alex Russo.

Justin is the one who is there to help her. Maybe his characterization seems to some people ooc but personally I always thought he would do anything to help/save his family/sister so I think his role in the story fits perfectly.

For me it's one of the best dark!fics in this fandom. It has also a prequel called "Hunted" which gives us the Mason's POV and explains how Alex and Mason got together. It will also give you chills because it describes how easily someone can manipulate other people.

Prey (LJ)
--> She never thought she'd be the girl who put up with this type of thing. But somewhere along the way she lost herself in him, and forgot who she used to be. Justin didn't. (violence, language and implied non-consensual sex -> abusive relationship and victim-blaming)

Author Website: none
Why this must be read:

This fic shows one of my favorite solutions for the Justin/Alex 'problem' because really... would a catholic family like the Russos accept incest? Would Justin accept his love for Alex? Or Alex?

The fic starts with heartbreak but ends with a smile. I really can't say more without to spoiling the ending so I say only one thing. This story is one of the reasons why [livejournal.com profile] jlxology is one of my favorite Justin/Alexs authors.

A fantastic idea and a great realization with a superb writing style. What do you want more as a fanfic reader?

Fandom: WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE
Pairing: Stevie/Alex
Length: 3.352 words
Author on LJ: none
Author Website: fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

Personally I'm not a huge femslasher. There is only one f/f pairing which could me persuade in the last six years in various fandoms but nevertheless... I'm strangely intrigued with this pairing and their canon friendship/relationship.

The fic doesn't follow the Stevie arc which is no surprise but it still starts with a friendship between Alex and Stevie. Through Stevie's eyes the readers can see how she views Alex and how their relationship develop. Normal and not so normal moments give Steviehope but she still struggles with her feelings. Unsure if and how she can seduce Alex.

The author shows us a Stevie who is a bad girl and a wizard but it's basically still a teenager who is unsure how to persuade her crush. Her way to admit her love is realistic and maybe this is the reason that I like the fic so much. I understand Stevie. Her feelings, her fear and her love for Alex and as I read the fic I wished her nothing more than a happy end. :)

Break Me Down (FF.net)
--> Like Stevie actually gives a damn that Alex is straight.

Pairing: Justin/Alex
Length: 17,545 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] save_vs_magic
Author Website: fanfiction.net
Why this must be read:

Long and well-written fics with a well-developed plot are amazing but sometimes you don't want to think. There are moments when you need something different... where you need smut. But there are also times where you want both. Smut AND plot and this fic connects these two things in a wonderful way.

The author has a beautiful writing style. Her Alex is snarky but still charming. Sometimes a little beast but you love her nevertheless. The same for Justin. There are moments when he is smartass and only few sentences later he is the funny and cute Geek which you only want to sex up hug.

The same thought has also Alex in this fic after she finds out Justin wants to be a doctor instead of a scientiest. Convinced that this is a joke or something similar she wants to test his abilities as a doctor. Which follows is something I really don't want to experience with my real doctor but between Alex and Justin (or me and David Henrie/Justin)? Hell yes!

I don't like doctor-patient-roleplays but this? This is freaking hot and Justins/Alexs snarky comments are the icing of the cake. One of my favorite PWP-with-Plot of this fandom. :)

Doc Day Afternoon (LJ), FF.net
--> Seemingly out of the blue, Justin announces that he wants to go to med school after college. Alex thinks he’d make a terrible doctor. Justin naturally disagrees, Alex challenges him to prove it, and sexy hi-jinks ensue. (a sequel/continuation of sorts of Episode 3.22, Delinquent Justin)

How would you react when your siblings realize they aren't normal? Their feelings are everything but not normal? Could you accept them? Could you be still the same one? Cheerful with no worries?

Max can't do this. Through his eyes we see the slowly destruction of the Russo family. One vacation, one night, a feeling which should be a reason to be joyful, destroy this family and Max can only watch. It's heartbreaking to see how he falls apart. Nobody helps him... Nobody? No, there is Harper who also lost her path and wants to be his friend. 

Even if the fic is sad and melancholic there is still a shimmer of hope. Maybe it's impossible and unrealistic for everyone to have a happy end but maybe Max and Harper are two of these happy ones.
The author shows us this through simple words and moments but these things make the fic perfect. It fits perfect to show the mix of sadness and hope. So it's maybe no surprise that this is for me the best non-Jalex fic in this fandom and one of my personal favorites (and the reason that I ship Max/Harper....).

Why this must be read:

Twelve years. Such a long time but sometimes you only need few moments to see how much a life could change. One moment and everything is different. One look, one touch and you realize you can't be alone anymore.

This happen to Alex and Justin and the reader can see how their lives change. The fic starts twelve years in the future and shows then earlier moments. The time gapes between them grow till the fics end with the present time and you realize that this future is inevitable. It's the normal, the right path for these two people.

I simple love the style of the fic. The idea to start with the end and end with the start isn't new but as I read [livejournal.com profile] tabacoychanel's fic I still was amazed. Somehow the author give this timeline presentation a new twist. Together with her wonderful characterization of Justin and Alex this is the reason the fic is under my top ten of WoWP-fics. Also the fic gets bonus points for an amazing Max even if there are only few scenes with him. ;-)

So I can only say... read the fic and see how Justins and Alexs evolved.

--> Justin and Alex's lives unfold like a butterfly in reverse.

Why this must be read:

In the show Max is the clown, the stupid kid, the idiot and sadly almost every fanfic author also uses this image of him. Why? Especially in the earlier episodes there are lots of moments which show a more serious Max but still... maybe it's the easiest way to write him. This is the reason that I was downright stunned as I found this fic.

[livejournal.com profile] digitalized_ shows us Max as a normal kid who loves his family and his special ability. Magic is the only thing who makes him different and helps him to find his own self. But is he still the same Max without magic? Who is Max Russo? Is he only Justins and Alexs Russos younger brother? The crazy kid of the sandwich shop? Or is he more?
The author shows us a kid who search for his place in the world and who wants to find out what he wants to do as an adult and who he is as an adult. It's a struggle which is familiar for everyone and maybe this is the reason why the fanfiction is so heartbreaking and touching.

This Max is a person like you and I, a kid who grows up and struggles against his feelings and the world around him till he finds the special place for himself. This is a Max which I could love like I love Justin and Alex. I really wish the TPTB would had given us such scenes with Max but thankfully there are fics like this to solve this problem.

Why this must be read:

Lots of fics in this fandom are very short and only few are able to convey so much feelings in so few words. This one-shot is special for me because it uses the catholic upbringing of Justin and Alex. Together with their feelings the fic shows us their fall into (their) sin.

At first, I must admit, the writing style is a little bit confusing but after I understood it... It's simply fitting. The author uses an unique mixture of texts which is maybe the most interesting thing of the fic and the reason that I chose to rec this fic! Try it, you will be surprised. :-)

Why this must be read:

My second rec is really a gen fic. No joke, there is no pairing except past Juliet/Justin. It is really unusual for me to read gen fics but this one is... special because it is one of the few fanfictions which really could happen like that in the show.

The fic is short but still long enough to give the reader a (perfect) look into Justins and the relationship with his mother and vice versa. Especially Theresa is perfect and I adore the last few paragraphs about Juliet. The author shows within three sentences the love and understanding between Justin and Theresa, the importance of Juliet for Justin and this alone is worth a rec.
