Summary: Doctor Rodney McKay, Ph.D., Ph.D., compulsively orders books on astrophysics and the like just for the sheer pleasure of writing insulting comments in the margins.

Why You Should Read This: Because as one-shot AU’s go, this is probably one of the cutest, but it’s also one of the most overlooked. And I don’t say cute as in “Awww!”. I say cute as in “Laugh so hard at Rodney that coffee comes out your nose.” See, this fic features the adorableness that is a flustered Rodney McKay, and it is truly a thing to behold. I mean who can resist Rodney realizing he has a crush on John? This is a snippet from the fic that just makes you smile:

He has a crush. He has a big, ridiculous, hairy crush on the delivery guy – John. John the barely-clothed UPS man of doom. John the leg-flashing book handler of lewdness. John the scorching-hot, aviator-sunglasses-wearing strumpet.

Title: (We’re Looking For) Something Dumb to Do
Author: mrsvc
Fandom: Grimm
Pairing(s): Nick Burkhardt/Monroe
Rating: Teen and Up
Warnings: None
Genres: First Time, Romance, Drama, Angst, Medium (10k-25k)
Word Count: 13,623

Summary: “Monroe, you are going to have to explain this to me. How the hell did we get drunk-married at a wesen peace ceremony?”

Why You Should Read This: First off, I’ve been rewatching Grimm this past couple of weeks, which has rekindled my love for these two idiots. But beyond that, this fic is full of just wonderful little Nick and Monroe things; Wesen ceremonies, drinking, custom-carved rings, and romance. And I love how their friends support them throughout it, even if they both sober up and figure, “Well we should divorce at the next equinox”, though neither of their hearts are in it. This is just a wonderful tale of gaining courage through drink to go for what you really want out of life.
