By These Pickers and Stealers - Beautiful written fic that keeps within the tone and style of the play (though it is neither in play or verse form). It integrates lines from canon seamlessly and presence a slash paring that I never thought of shipping but now find quite compelling.
Keeping Watch - This one is wonderful for those who would rather read Hamlet slash without Hamlet. It's a solid peace that gives light to a promising rare-pair.
Blades of Glory
Joy to the World - A nearly incestuous moment wonderfully done with sparking UST.
Waking Early - Adorable.
Sweet Dreams - I like how subtle the femslash is in this one. I also think the two Princesses are well/appropriately chosen.
Under the Sea - A very nice, descriptive peace about what it's like to go from sea to land but told from the onlooker's POV (Eric's). Remains nostalgic in tone without going into deep angst.
Lady Gaga/Taylor Swift RPF
Find Your Jesus, Find Your Kubrick - Seriously hot femslash and as unbelievable as the paring is it works. If you're still struggling, just pretend Taylor had a few shots at that party first and as someone once said, Taylor Swift + Vodka = Ke$ha and suddenly, it's not so unbelievable. No, really though, just read it.
Home and Home - The slash is light, the friendship is obvious, there's some hockey in there and the writing style is light and natural.
Gravity (music video) / Vienna Teng RPF
Hope To See You Again - A spiritually rich piece dealing with love and loss without the usual "character death" angst involved. There is also a wonderful oriental culture element involved.
