A huge rec list post  
I had a few people asking me for C/A recs so I figured instead of PMing and replying back, I would just do a mega big list on my LJ. So here goes, there is a lot here, a lot of different genres/ideas/ratings. Hopefully something for everyone or if not, maybe just understand why I love this pairing and it's fandom. Feel free to pimp, link, direct, etc to this post

As of right now there are almost 2000 fics on the main C/A Archive, Just Fic. So picking just a few or so was a damn near impossible task. There are a lot of great stories I left off this list so if you have some recs dear to your heart, please leave them in the comments.

Huge thanks to the MGs for putting up with me and my "what was that story where Cordy and Angel had the food fight?" type of questions for the past four days. You girls are the best. *hugs*

Hey. I'm a late comer to the fandom who still appreciates old content and
just thought I'd give you a heads up that all fics you've listed here that are linked to the Angel Oasis are no longer accessible because that archive is gone.

If you don't mind I'd like to share two of my favorites that I've read so far which are not here:

'Leaving Hell' and 'Home' by anr. (They are a set, 'Home' is the sequel to 'Leaving Hell').
Rated: NC-17.


In an AU of the Wish!verse, Angel and Cordy, being the only Scooby survivors of the harvest are brought together and journey to find a new start outside of Sunnydale.
It's beautifully characterized and tied in with the canon.
There's powerful emotion, angst, and very satisfying hot sex.

'Deal with a Demon'

At 18, Cordy's father made a contract with a demon that promised his first born daughter's virginity to a demon prince on her 21st birthday in exchange for financial success. Presently, Cordy's 21st birthday has arrived and the demon prince shows up to collect.

Timeline: Season 2 of AtS just after 'Disharmony'.
Rating: PG-13

As far as I'm concerned this is how the Groosalugg should have been used.
Angel's protective mode with Cordy is set to max-feels and the popular belief that she let him off too easily with the clothes in 'Disharmony' is satisfied. I also massively appreciate another altered element that I can't disclose without giving away the ending.
Furthermore, I find myself liking this author's version of the Groosalugg better than the canon.

I'm attempting to write some Angel/Cordy fics of my own but I'm so much of a perfectionist when I write that it's almost ADD so it could be a while if I ever get them done at all. :P

On another note, I must know, your journal banner, is that a real comic or fanart?

I'm basically at the end of the C/A fic line here, I've been to all the archives and found my way back here.
It seems Angel's Oasis comes and goes because I've been through there recently.

I just tried to read 'The Memories We Make' but couldn't finish it.
The reveal of the Cordy-has-to-push-this-because-she-thinks-it's-her-only-Halloween-with-Connor-before-she-dies-of-the-visions angle and Angel's asinine attitude about Connor's clothing and costume spoiled the fluff/cuteness for me.
Admittedly, I'd prefer to dress my imaginary infant as a vampire vs. a pumpkin myself but I have nothing against a pumpkin costume.

On a side note, I doubt Wesley's had a lot of experience with Halloween. My best friend studied abroad in England sometime last decade I believe and she said Halloween isn't much recognized there.

FYI: 'Playing with Fire', 'Queen of the Night', 'Heat Stroke' and perhaps more, those are just ones I've tried so far are broken.

I just made a rec list myself, feel free to check it out. I selected very few of the same ones you did and may still be adding.
