"There you are," he said.
"Here I am," she answered.
In celebration of Logan & Veronica Appreciation Week, another fic rec post! There’s a lot of repeating authors and LiveJournal material happening in this post, but I can’t really apologize because it’s all so good. A few weeks ago, I decided to expand my fic horizons beyond AO3/FFnet and oh my god. These new-old discoveries quickly became some of my favorites of all time and they were written back when the show was still airing. A different world. This post includes those (many of which are angsty but ultimately worth it even if you aren’t super into angst, I PROMISE!) plus more recent stories from some of my faves, because of course. !!!!
(Also, make sure to check the lvaw tag for lovely celebratory meta, gifsets, ficlets, and graphics. This fandom is too good.)
Affirmative Defenses (NR, post-movie, oneshot) He let out a breath and continued to the car, dropping the bag near the front tire before he wrapped her in a big, comforting hug. “Veronica.” She squeezed his waist, nodded a bit against his chest. “Sorry,” she muttered, embarrassed now. It’d been more than ten years, she should be over this by now. “Don’t you apologize,” he said, fingers clutching her closer.
Vast Reserves of Patience (Acquisitions) (M, S2, oneshot) You used to come and visit me after your sailing lessons. You always smelled like the ocean, and it made me happy, because I was so tired of being cooped up inside. And you brought books, and you read to me.” “Oh man,” he groaned. “You were such a trooper. That was when I was in my fantasy novel phase.”
The Harsh Blows Dealt (T, S1, oneshot) Logan nodded. Veronica inched closer. She smelled good, like lemon cookies, sugary and tart. Even at her most miniskirted-with-shitkicker-boots tough, Veronica Mars always smelled sweet. Like home. He covered his face.
Twelve Stops And Home (T, post-S2, oneshot) "Awesome,” a sharp grin splits across her face as Veronica grabs the ends of his fingers, falling back into the couch and pulling Logan down next to her, “then I can steal the throws." His head falls to the side, leaning against the top of the couch to watch her carefully. "I don’t know which should be considered the bigger crime." Veronica mirrors his action, pressing forward to steal a quick kiss as she decides, “Then you definitely need a decorator.”
Two Funerals (PG, post-S2, oneshot) "So, um, have you thought about where you’re living?" She shifts against him and sits up, her elbows rounding into his elbows, and folds her fingers together with his like kneading bread.
All Shades of Blue (NR, movie filler, oneshot) She rolled her eyes, but let him hold her hand while she jumped down. The moment her feet were on the ground, he bent to her, kissing along her jaw and playfully backing her into the fuselage. “Thanks for flying with me,” he said as he moved to step away.
Superconnected (M, S1, oneshot) “This doesn’t make any sense,” she says. “I hate you,” she tells him, and when he kisses her, she presses up on her tiptoes to meet him partway. She had closed the door behind her, and they fall against it. It is flimsy beneath her back, and she hopes it can withstand their force, because whatever is happening, it is staying out here. It’s not coming home with her, not any more than it already has.
Can Make A Good Man Turn Bad (M, everything, oneshot) If he glances over twice, he does not do it a third time. She knows because she does. “I missed you,” he says, just once, staring straight at the open road ahead. Everything is different now. But when it comes to words, he makes an honest living; this she knows about Logan.
Waypoints (NR, post-S3, 20k series, WIP) Their burgers were long gone, and they were three beers into the evening before Logan cracked. “So,” Logan said in a rush, “how is Veronica?” He sounded almost sheepish. Wallace grinned and checked his watch. “Almost made it an hour and a half,” he commented. “I’m impressed.” If he didn’t know better, he’d think Logan was actually blushing.
Awake All of A Sudden (M, S1, oneshot) She climbs into his car, all California-girl in sweatpants, tank top, and flip-flops. She’s dragging her comforter with her, like she might just sack out in the backseat of the car while he drives around town. He wonders if she sleeps in those pigtails, or if they’re a treat just for him.
Devotion (PG, S2, oneshot) Eventually, she pads out in sock feet and sits beside him on the floor, crossing her arms over her knees and resting her forehead on top. He looks her way, briefly, and misses a pixellated banana. ”Duncan ?” he asks, and she shakes her head. “Oh.” The ape swings from a rope bridge while Veronica stares past the television screen. “So- you need to go home ?” ”No,” she says, into her sleeve. ”I can give you a ride home, Veronica.” ”It’s okay.”
And Said Nothing (T, S1, oneshot) When she kisses him, she’s not struck by his difference, the flat solidness of his chest, the width of his arms and the dry, smooth lips; no, she notices only their sameness- his eyes shut, lashes fluttering against her cheek, and the soft confusion of his hands as he holds onto her waist.
Home Soon (M, post-S2, oneshot) He smiles at you, real and tiny. “Later,” he says, then he says, “Please,” and you bury your face in his chest and climb on top of him and his hands are doing this touch and hover thing until you settle on top of him. He makes a good pillow, all together.
Tilt-A-Whirl (M, S2, oneshot) She collapsed against him, her head dropping against his chest as he cradled her and she wanted to cry from the relief of it all. He was kissing her shoulder gently, and a part of her hoped maybe they could fall forever and never hit the ground.
