[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5491932/1/A_Good_Man A Good Man]] by Grindylowe
* Recommended by Ye Mighty Despair
* ''Synopsis'': Mordecai faces an ... uncomfortable situation.
* ''Comments'': In which Mordecai has feelings and yet remains ''in character.'' This is a thing which exists. To elaborate, Mordecai executes a man, like he does, and then attends the funeral for appearances. He meets the man's widow and feels...something that's not quite guilt but the closest Mordecai can probably come to feeling it. Slight onesided Mordecai/OC on the OC's part, but it's not very romantic and seems to be more a desperate attraction borne out of grief and loneliness.

* ''Comments'': A Mordecai-centric fic, focusing on him after joining the Marigold. Innochka, a Russian woman with similar talents as Mordecai sent to St. Louis after the Marigold pretentiously decides to begin artifact smuggling, is introduced. She's a very compelling OC, and has a personality that's anything but flat. [[WordOfGod Tracy Butler]] has even complimented the story and Innochka. While poised to become a romance fic, it hasn't quite yet. Overall, definitely worth a read.

* ''Synopsis'': “We’ve got to stop meeting like this,” says Dom, sliding into the booth across from him. This is a joke; Zib’s never laid eyes on him outside the big house. It occurs to him that maybe the reverse isn’t true - alto sax is the sort of girl that demands attention, and Lackadaisy’s bright for a cellar but dim for a dance hall. You don’t see much from the stage.
* ''Comments'': Dom/Zib It may have been entirely imagined, but this troper always felt there was some amount of flirting between Zib and Dom in their meeting. Jonesandashes runs with this, and continues their banter the day after a memorable night at the Lackadaisy. It seemed like most of the characters voices were faithful to the originals, and the entire thing was an entertaining read.

[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/34901 The Midnight Special]] by prodigy
* Recommended by rockgecko2180
* ''Synopsis'': How Mordecai Heller became wanted for murder in St. Louis, Missouri: a story in five years, five hours, and one irascible Slav.
* ''Comments'': Witty, insightful, and illuminative, The Midnight Special spins out an involving but utterly believable backstory for Mordecai. It explores how Mordecai might've gotten to where he is presently, while remaining true to the characters as they are now. Don't forget to read the "DVD Notes" afterwards; they add a whole other layer of humor and awesome to the fic.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into [[EveryoneIsGay homosexual]] or [[BetterThanCanon non-canon]] territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, {{Shipping}} is {{Serious Business}}.

** Enthusiastically seconded. This fic is so good, [[WordOfGod Tracy herself]] was rendered speechless at its quality when she read it on the Lackadaisy forums.

The last update was in July, which may make it look like a DeadFic, but the author has stated that they are writing more chapters and are sorry for the delay. Overall, definitely worth a read.

* ''Comments'': You know when you find a fic that takes two of your favorite characters- of ''any'' series, ''ever''- and develops them to such a degree that you could swear that the fic itself was entirely canonical? This right here does all of that and more. Essentially, it's a story about the growth and development of the relationship between Ivy Pepper and Viktor Vasko, from the time they first meet to the time when they grow to realize that the dynamic of their relationship has changed, and all of the moments in between. Well, that's what it would be about, if that were not a laughably inadequate, bare-bones description of such a colorful, fleshed-out, detailed story. There is so much to say about this story and yet so very few words with which to say it; contains some truly wonderful dialogue, spot-on characterization, and some very subtle, very moving mythology nods that move in the story like clockwork. Not explicit enough to be technically qualified as a {{shipping}} fic, but there is a definite romantic feel underneath it all. And just as a warning- bring a snack, because this fic is ''long'' and you won't want to budge from your spot until you've finished reading it (and you may also want to bring some tissues). Absolutely wonderful in every way possible.

* ''Comments'': Prevaricate covers a scenario after the current canon timeline but not too far into the future and explains quite well what might happen if Calvin were to be injured on the job. The reactions are completely in character, and the story introduces an OC who is worth a try- she's very original and intriguing, even for the short time she appears in the fic. Those who'd like to read a sequel should check out chapter seven of [[http://http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6766759/1/Lackadaisy_Vignettes Vignettes,]] which fits into the story very well and is also quite humorous.
