5 Classic Angel/Cordelia Fics  
It's so difficult to narrow down a list of Angel/Cordy fics. The fandom has seen and still has excellent writers. I chose five that I find myself reading over and over again, but there are many many more that fit that description that should be here as well.

1. starlet2367 - "Queen of the Night"
One of the best fics that poses an alternate way of dealing with the death sentence the visions hold over Cordy's head. Novel length and has one of the best original characters I've read.

2. starlet2367 - "Heat Stroke"
What can I say? Starlet is the queen of C/A fic and it's a title she richly deserves. This, another novel length fic, puts season one Angel and Cordy trapped in an alternate reality - a bleak, deadly desert - where they have to lean on each other to survive and find a way out. The descriptions are lush and gritty and the sex is as hot as the desert.

3. Syn - "Armadillos and Salsa"
Post season 4, AU fic that has the entire cast plus Faith on a road trip to heal all the damage season 4 did. Fun and sexy with spot on characterizations with ships for everyone plus Fred's mom and dad! I would have much preferred this on my tv than W&H and S5.

4. Samluvsharrison - "Swan Song"
A xover with BtVS post season 4 Angel. Angel must go to Sunnydale to assist with The First reluctantly leaving Cordy still in a coma. Things with Buffy are cordial but strained. Cordy wakes up and head to Sunnydale to help out. Great characterizations with a dramatic twist that will gut you. Simply one of the best post S4 AU fics out there. Multi-ships mentioned/implied.

5. Loki - "Radiance"
Cordy and Angel are invited to celebrate a momentus occasion with the Scoobies in Sunnydale. Buffy and Angel face some realities and Cordy is faced with something totally unexpected. A realistic and fabulous look at a "what if" situation. Spot-on characterizations with great heart. A C/A fan's dream fic.

Enjoy these great stories during the longer winter ahead. :)

Another nice AtSverse list. Could you make the last entry go directly to the story you've chosen?

Oops, all fixed. Thanks for the heads up.

It's true, because Classic Recs is always open to everything but our current year there's SO much to choose from!

Psst, can you tuck an lj-cut in after your first entry?

Sure I can cut. I just saw quite a few entries without them, so I thought it was okay not to.
