The Overnight Sensation, by samirant (PG)

Hey all! Sorry I've been a no-show for the last two weeks, I was on vacation, and then I contracted a cold from said vacation. As I prostrate myself to your glorious personages, dear readers, I shall announce it is Theme Week! This month: Small Fandoms!

Title: The Overnight Sensation
Fandom: Ugly Betty
Pairing: Daniel/Betty
Categories: Crack, Humor, Fluff
Length: medium (~2900 words)
Warnings: paparazzi

Author on LJ: samirant
Website: Fic Tag

Summary: A rookie paparazzo captures a scandalous picture of Daniel Meade and his "newest beau". His coworkers feel compelled to pass on the Legend of The Betty.

Review:
In my opinion, their is not nearly enough Betty love in the series (which was kind of the point, I guess, BUT STILL.) So when I found this fic, I did the happy dance of fannish glee as I read it, because it contains two of my (non-sexual) fanfic kinks: outsider point of view, and the press. I loved the original characters, who have this great balance of jaded cynicism and genuine enthusiasm about their jobs as paparazzi. There's some great banter, and the setting of a tabloid gives the 'outsider' characters just enough inside knowledge to understand what is going on with the canon characters, and yet they still retain a fresh perspective for the reader. Any fan of Betty Suarez is bound to enjoy this fic :)
