Marvel (X-Factor), Monet St. Croix/Theresa Cassidy. Woooooow. This is really well-done, the sort of story I wish would be canon, because it's so compelling and satisfying. M is the focus for much of the fic, and she's complex, prickly, coming to terms with the depth of her emotions for Terry, and all-around a well-characterized person.

One of my favorite things about WWE fandom is the MVs. Wrasslin in general has a long ways to go re: representation of women, but the fans' worship of the Divas as goddesses is impassioned and sincere. This is a fantastic MV about the Divas from what is arguably their greatest era, 2000-2004, with bonus points for focusing more on their actions and interpersonal conflicts than romantic storylines. They're not just romantic props, they are warrior goddesses.

Delicate in Every Way but One by spibsy (A03)
WWE fandom, Bray Wyatt/Dean Ambrose. The author takes what could be a crack pairing and plays it straight, and it's actually good. She also nails Bray Wyatt's speech patterns -- you can almost hear his dialogue being spoken in his voice. Besides, who can resist the thought of a magical realism romance fic between Dean Ambrose and Bray Wyatt, of all people?
