Mardia writes some amazing fic. First her AU of Doom is about what would have happened if Dan and Blair became friends during the year Serena and Vanessa were away. Each story deals with an epiosde of the show. She is up to 1x09. This fic is amazing, not only because she writes all the characters sympathetically, but also because she shows how a tweak can change how so many of the characters interactions. Dan and Blair will have a romantic relationship later on in the series.Right now these stories are about the Blair/Dan friendship. Climb A Ladder Up To The Sun,Never Bitter, All Delicious,A Thunderhead In My Heart, New Steps Don't Come Easy,A Change (Would Do You Good), Paper Faces On Parade,Standing In The Way Of Control,The Infrastructure Will Collapse,A Clear And A Deafening Sound
I also like her Nate piece set after the events of 1x14 called Everything I Do (Has Got A Hole In It)
lila82 writes some beautiful character studies. My favorites are All You Ever Wanted. This is a five part story about Blair growing, while at Yale. I linked to the first part. First Breath After the Coma (Or Four Times Someone Else Saved Chuck Bass and One Time He Saved Himself). "No One's Gonna Love You" (Nate), and "Doll Parts" (Alison)
DaeDreemer has written some great friendship stories. Mermaids, Pirates, & Eggos(Nate/Serena/Chuck friendship),Three Together(Chuck/Serena/Eric family bonding after 2x16),Own It (Lily/Bart after 2x09), Not A Habit(Nate/Chuck after 2x05) and New Rules(Serena/Blair mending their friendship after 2x05)
I find it almost impossible to find well written Serena fic so I really loved this story. what it's really like for a girl (to date dan humphrey).
