I was sick at the beginning of the month, which mean I had two days with nothing to do but read fic! I took the opportunity to finally read a few of the fics that had been on my to-read list for ages. It was both wonderful and immensely satisfying! Here are some of my favorites from the month in a bunch of different fandoms. :D

Title: All It Does Is Rain Series (2 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] theladyingrey42 | favicon theladyingrey42
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17 overall
Word Count: 19,909 total
Content/Notes first time, bottom!steve
Summary: In which the Avengers rebuild their home, superheroes are more than just the things that made them super, and communication is hard.
Sweet little series with a wonderful Steve and Tony. I liked that the two fics are from different POVs, so we really get inside the character's heads. Great characterizations, and a lovely connection between these two.


Title: A Cure For Boredom
Author: favicon emmagrant01
Pairing: Sherlock/John, John/OMC, John/OFC, John/OFC/OFC, John/OMC/OFC (Please note that Sherlock is present for all of the interactions between John and the OCs)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 81,665
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!john, bottom!sherlock, light D/s, dom!sherlock, sub!john, threesome (m/m/f and f/m/f), light bondage, blindfolds, first time, sort of open relationship, rimming, dirty talk, double penetration (female), voyeurism, exhibitionism, public!sex
Summary: They'd never talked about sex in the year they'd known each other. Well, that wasn't quite correct: Sherlock had never said a word about sex; John had bemoaned his personal dearth of it on many occasions.
I must say that I'm normally not a big fan of threesome/polyamory/open relationship type fics, so I was really unsure bout this one going into it. But, like everybody had assured me, it was brilliant. This is quite *my* Sherlock and John, but I loved them nonetheless. I adored the relationship between Sherlock and John here, the love and trust, and fear and uncertainty of the other's feelings. The sex scenes were smoking hot, but even hotter was how in control of everything Sherlock was. Even though most of the fic is John getting off with other people, Sherlock is an undeniable presence throughout the fic. I thought the ending was great, and very fitting for this Sherlock and John.


Title: Superman For Sale
Author: favicon dm_wyatt
Pairing(s): Clark/Lex, mention of past Clark/OMC and Clark/Lois
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 80,830
Content/Notes: post-rift, future!fic, magic, dub-con, bonding!fic, bottom!clark
Summary: Clark goes missing and Lex tries to figure out why. He ends up "buying" Superman from a kidnapper, who had put him under a spell... Things don't go quite as planned.
Really interesting read! Definitely a little mushy in places and not always the most sophisticated, but I really enjoyed the plot, and I loved Clark and Lex's connection.


Title: Our Days of Blood and Sunset
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 11,130
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!nasir, disability!fic (sort of)
Summary: Nasir knows he should not be angry at someone he’d thought lost forever, someone he loves this much who has been hurt this badly; but he can’t help it, either.
Really beautifully written fic that deals with Nasir's understandably complex feelings about Agron's unexpected return from the dead. It all felt so realistic and believable, and it was really wonderful watching both Nasir and Agron deal with the aftermath of Agron's decision, and seeing them work their way back together.

Title: steal me and shield me (Part 7 of the Of Magic and Monsters Series)
Author: favicon venomedveins
Pairing: Agron/Nasir, other background/past pairings
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,051 of 155,638 total
Content/Warnings: AU: Fairy Tale & Fantasy, creature!fic, magic!nasir, werewolf!agron, arranged marriage, rough sex, bottom!nasir, MPREG
Summary: Agron and Nasir are in a race against time as the Wolf Festival approaches and Gerulf's plan begins to be revealed.
Wonderful addition! I liked seeing the Geroff thread wrapped up, but given the introduction of the"Roman" vampires, there is still plenty more to overcome! Super hot, and I adored all of the lovely Nagron moments.

I was able to read some quality Teen Wolf fic this month off of my to-read list, and it made me very happy! (I also read some not-so-quality fic that I had bookmarked, and is there anything more disaapointing than bookmarking a long!fic for later, not getting around to it for months, then finally settling in for what your sure will be a hit, only to have to back button a quarter of the way through because you just CANNOT anymore? But I digress.) Here are some of my favorites that I read this month.

Title: The Weathered Shell
Author: favicon trilliath
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 14,356
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, selkie!stiles
Summary: The young man is standing with an arm casually thrown up to lean against the door frame, displaying his bare torso to advantage, his powerful swimmer's shoulders and lean body pale with moonlight. His cocky grin, however, is fading quickly into a look of shock and confusion. Other than a pelt shaped into a sloppy kilt, his legs are bare too, despite the chill winds coming in off the ocean.
"You're not a girl," he says in a gently lilting accent that's like an odd blend of all the coastal voices Derek's ever heard, squinting at Derek like his eyes might somehow be deceiving him.
Unlikely, given his dark beard and broad, well-muscled shoulders, let alone what he's got under his kilt.
Really beautiful fic. I loved the gentleness here, the beautiful melancholic undertone throughout the fic. Selkie!Stiles is wonderful, and I really enjoyed him coming to terms with his bisexuality. Gorgeously written, and a truly lovely and poignant connection between Stiles and Derek.

Title: This Kind of Luxe
Author: favicon horchatita394, favicon weathervaanes, & favicon wishingonalightningbolt
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, brief mention of past Stiles/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,117
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Royalty, hale family lives, no hale fire, firstson!stiles, prince!derek, switching, first time, bottom!derek, bottom!stiles
Summary: As they have for almost every US President since the 1910s, the Prime Minister and the royal head of their country pay a visit to the United States after inauguration. Which is why, when President Jonathan Stilinski is elected into office, Queen Talia Hale of Norland plans their trip.
Such an adorable fic! I'm always a big fan of firstson!Stiles and prince!Derek and getting them both in one fic was beyond awesome! Super lovely romance here, and just a fun, lovely read.

Title: The Boy and the Beast
Author: favicon Dira Sudis
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, past Derek/Kate
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 118,749
Content/Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, wolf!derek
Summary: In which events in Beacon Hills go rather differently from the start, and a Beauty and the Beast (ish) story ensues. (Scott is not a teacup and no one sings about their feelings.)
This was a wonderful, slow burn fic, sort of a retelling of Canon. There's wolf!Derek and curses and dream sharing, and lots of wonderful, gentle pining. I just adored everybody here, and how all of the relationships are portrayed. Derek and Stiles were amazing, and their connection was just great. I also particularly enjoyed Derk and Scott's relationship here. It's like how it could have been in canon if they'd had a different start and Scott had more of a choice in the bite. Just an awesome read.


Title: 5 Reasons Stiles Stilinski is a Horrible Roommate
Author: faviconKuriKuri
Pairing(s): Scott/Stiles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,072
Content/Warnings: sex toys
Summary: 1. He’s bad about remembering to do laundry.
2. He's loud.
3. He never empties the dishwasher.
4. He has no sense of personal space.
5. He doesn't actually want to be Scott's roommate.
Really adorable fic with mutual pining an excellent characterizations. I can totally see their relationship coming about like this.

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,692

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,609
Content/Warnings: tattoos, tattoo artist!draco, bottom!harry

Funny and sexy update to an awesome fic! Loved the banter and the obvious love between Harry and Draco. Plus some super hot role play and blow job action.

Title: Tooth Fairy Fights and Wisdom Teeth Wars: Draco and Harry's Great Big Dental Adventure
Author: [livejournal.com profile] icmezzo
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 12,970
Warning(s): veela!draco, creature!fic, bottom!harry
Summary: Harry never had a visit from the Tooth Fairy when he was a boy, but now that he's had his wisdom teeth pulled, he's tempted to try again. He knows it's silly. Obviously it is. Ridiculous, really. But then, sometimes it feels nice to believe in a little magic.
Oh this fic is just so much fun! Draco and Harry's voices here were great and the whole thing was just so funny and charming. The concept of the tooth fairies was really clever, and I liked the incorporation of veela!Draco. Awesome build-up, and some super great sexy times!

Title: Promises to Keep and sequel Worth Keeping
Author: [livejournal.com profile] silentauror
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Harry/Ginny, Draco/OFC, background Ron/Hermione, Dean/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,112 and 4,760
Content/Warnings: semi epilogue compliant, infidelity, bottom!draco, implied switching, sort of bonding!fic, the eros affair
Summary: Written for The Eros Affair: Harry to Draco: I promise to go down on you. H/D, DH spoilers.
Really lovely fic with Harry running into Draco while at the playground with his children, and them feeling an instantaneous connection. I really liked Harry's headspace here, his confusion about his attraction to Draco, his strained marriage with Ginny, his love for his children. The relationship development between Draco and Harry is a little fast, but the chemistry between them is scorching. Satisfying ending, and the whole thing felt very believable with both it's ups and downs.

Title: Not Less of Love
Author: [livejournal.com profile] literaryspell
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, past Harry/Ginny
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 36,131
Content/Warnings: eighth year, veela!draco, bottom!harry, mates, first time
Summary: The war changed everyone. Harry comes back to eighth year knowing exactly what he wants, and unfortunately for him, so does Draco. Is it just Harry's imagination, or is his worst enemy harbouring a secret? Harry finds out about Draco's new side and definitely doesn’t want to help. But it's not really up to him.
Wonderful eighth year veela!fic. I loved the connection between Draco and Harry, and I thought Draco's Veela instincts were wonderfully described. I liked that there were some bumps along the way to mate-hood, and the ending was lovely.

Title: The Alpha-Omega Bond Series (2 Fics)
Author: favicon Becstar7
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Ron/Hermione, Lucius/Narcissa, Lucius/Narcissa/Snape, past Dumbledore/Grindelwald

Summary: Harry goes into heat unexpectedly. Malfoy stakes his claim.
Super hot a/b/o fic that starts during sixth year and then goes slightly AU. Loved the way the omega!verse dynamics were incorporated into the HP world, and the discussions about alpha/omega dynamics and the laws/views on everything were really interesting. Really enjoyed the connection between Harry and Draco, and the sex was seriously, seriously hot.

Have you discovered Check, Please! on tumblr, yet? Because it's basically the cutest fucking webcomic to ever exist and you should hustle on over there and take a look. I started reading this comic a little over a week ago and quickly sucked down the rabbit hole of awesome. I ship the hell out of Jack and Bitty, and I naturally had to check out the fic situation. My favorites are below!

In the Notes section of each entry I have different tags, so if you are looking for something specific (like "dub-con" for example) just ctrl+f and enter your tag and it should highlight the relevant entries!

Word Count: 1,811
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!!bitty, first time
Summary: It’s not that Bittle doesn’t swear. It’s more that Bits doesn’t swear as much as the rest of them, Jack thinks. Bittle swears for emphasis, carefully picking and choosing when to drop a curse into his sentence, just to pack a little punch in whatever he’s saying.
Super sweet and sexy fic with Jack finding it particularly...arousing when Bitty swears, especially because he does it so rarely. The sex was super hot and it was just a really lovely and sexy snapshot of their relationship.

Bitty coughs out a laugh. "Glad you're satisfied."
"Almost satisfied," Jack says. "I still have my shirt and socks on."
"Good," Bitty says, and he leans to press them together, forehead to forehead, chest to chest with only cotton worn thin between them. "I like you like this. It's cute."
Adorably hot drunk!sex, basically.

Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,558
Content/Warnings: established relationship, valentines please! fest 2016
Summary: There are whispers. There have always been whispers. Jack doesn’t hear them, doesn’t care to listen. He goes home to his apartment and climbs into his bed and kisses at Bittle’s shoulder before tucking his knees up behind Bittle’s and exhaling. The sound of Bittle’s soft snoring is better than any noise Deadspin could make.
Really lovely established relationship fic that takes place a few years down the line with Jack thinking about coming out and his future with Bitty.

Rating: PG
Word Count: 4,893
Summary: The night of Lardo’s exhibit, a handful of things go wrong before any go right.

Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,289
Content/Warnings: established relationship, dirty talk, intercrural sex
Summary: Jack's gaze is not exactly heavy, but something deep, powerful, focused, like a spotlight. It has weight, as if it nearly has force itself, and it creates sensation in his gut that’s not part of physical reality but is somehow still absolute in its existence. It makes Eric aware of all his vulnerabilities, but he doesn’t feel judged. He feels soothed, caressed. He feels some way he isn’t used to yet, like its suddenly possible for him to feel vulnerable without also feeling afraid.
Aww, this was just so sexy and sweet. Loved how much Jack and Bitty obviously love each other here, and the infrequency of their time together only served to make this stolen moment even hotter!

Title: forget the wax and the feathers
Author: favicon buchanan
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack, past Jack/Parse
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,104
Summary: Bittle scores against Yale and Jack acts like a son of a bitch. They’re not friends.
Really lovely fic with sort of the evolution of Jack. Beautiful characterization and it was great watching him evolve.

Summary: After Jack retires from the NHL, he takes his time to heal, in more ways than one. Bitty is there for him every step of the way.
Really lovely fic that takes place 10 years down the road with Jack getting a career-ending injury. Watching Jack deal with losing hockey was really wonderful, and his relationship with Bitty was too freaking sweet.

Title: now commence to kick each brick apart
Author: favicon misandrywitch
Pairing(s): Shitty & Jack, background Bitty/Jack & Shitty/Lardo
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6,753

Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: PG
Word Count: 7,044
Content/Warnings: established relationship
Summary: They're happy together, even if "together" is more of an abstract idea than a physical reality most of the time, but he can't help but wish everything wasn't two steps forward, one step back.
Really lovely established relationship fic showing some of the pressures of dating while Jack's still closeted for his career. Surprisingly sweet read.

Title: take the world out for a ride
Author: favicon sparklyslug
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,185
Content/Warnings: established relationship, baker!bitty, secret relationship
Summary: The pressure of acting a bit more or a bit less happy in a Providence coffee shop (roughly the most liberal place on God’s green Earth) doesn’t really measure up to the pressure of being in a NHL locker room, or on NHL ice (roughly the least liberal place on God’s green Earth).
It’s just. It’s just, for himself, Bitty had hoped that it was a performance he was done giving. Just to be able to act happy when he’s happy, and sad when he’s sad. That shouldn’t be so much to ask.
Really lovely fic that takes place a few years down the line with Jack and Bitty living together as "roommates" still keeping their relationship a secret because of Jack's hockey career. There was a quiet sort of angst about the keeping secrets, but even more powerful was the love they both had for one another, and their determination to make things work. I loved Bitty and his bakery, and the ending was really great.

Title: A Clerical Error locked on AO3
Author: favicon 1electricpirate
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,516
Content/Warnings: shared bed
Summary: “There aren’t any twins left,” Lardo’s telling them, stress evident in the corners of her eyes and the tight clench of her jaw. The hotel is cheap and conveniently located, but the payoff for that is terrible management and a logistical nightmare. “Just a double. You’ll have to share.”
Really lovely and sexy fic with Jack and Bitty hooking up on the road during Jack's senior year at Samwell. Super hot sex and some misunderstandings that all get wonderfully resolved in the end.

Title: left the city, my family, my precinct
Author: favicon spock
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 7,663
Content/Warnings: phone sex, sexting
Summary: Bitty uses emojis like a second language, one that Jack's slowly starting to become fluent in.
Oh this fic was hot and super fun! Loved Jack's characterization here, and the evolution of him and Bitty was super interesting (and hot)!

Title: Double Jeopardy
Author: favicon shortlimbs
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 7,976
Content/Warnings: drinking games
Summary: "Eric Richard Bittle does not choke on his drink. He is not thinking about Jack’s hands, nor is he thinking about twisting, checking, or any combination of the two. He is just a small southern boy who came to play hockey and mind his own business."
Super cute fic with a really great ensemble cast, and some beautiful mutual pining from Jack and Bitty.

Title: gonna wanna make it move
Author: favicon buchanan
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 8,173
Content/Warnings: fake/pretend relationship, thanksgiving, holiday!fic

Really sweet fic with pretend dating and Jack realizing that maybe he deserves to have Bitty for real.

Title: Goofè Dean
Author: favicon ohmyloki
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,585
Content/Warnings: established relationship,bottom!bitty
Summary: Five times Jack and Bitty aren't caught and the one time they make an announcement.
So much fun! I love the caught/almost caught having sex trope, and it was super fun watching Jack and Bitty narrowly avoid being found out. I really like that the team wasn't immediately aware of the relationship too, since I feel like that's a lot more believable that the "everybody knows" trope I see a lot in this fandom. Super sweet and sexy read!

Title: just to see that little smile
Author: favicon biblionerd07
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: PG
Word Count: 8,730
Summary: 5 times Jack surprises Bitty, +1 time Bitty gets him first.

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 8,797
Summary: Summer is supposed to feel just like this, Bitty thinks, swim trunks and lemonade and the smooth slide of river rocks in his hand, Jack's fingers curling around the inside of his knee where it tickles, the space between them small and getting smaller.
Oh my goodness this was the sweetest ever! The covers part of the summer after Jack's graduation, and I just adored seeing Jack and Bitty coming together. Really freaking sweet, and some great characterizations.

Summary: When Bittle first showed up at a meeting with management, sitting next to Sara with wide, scared eyes, Jack didn't think he had a chance in hell. Sara hired new assistants all the time, most of whom barely made it through a season.
Really lovely partial AU. Bitty is sort of a personal assistant (who bakes!), and Jack plays professional hockey, and their characterizations and the way they interact is perfect. They are seriously so freaking cute here.

Summary: “Bitty, you have finally rose to the rank of ‘bad roommate who brings people home and has loud sex,’ and we love it. It’s lonely here at the top. And now, you’ve joined us.”
No one notices Jack, at the far end of the table, staring at his bacon.
[A bunch of ways in which everyone finds out.]
Really fun fics! Each chapter is an unrelated ficlet showing the different ways that people may find out about Jack and Bitty. Really clever, and each chapter is a ton of fun. Listed as incomplete because the author is adding ideas as they go, but each chapter stands alone.

Oh this is so perfect! Loved all of them going on a trip to New York and finally making their moves. The characterizations were perfect here, and the connection between Bitty and Jack was fantastic. Super fucking hot, and just a really satisfying and believable fic.

Title: deets
Author: favicon applecrumbledore
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack, past Jack/Parse
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,104
Content/Warnings: first time, implied bottom!bitty
Summary: The grainy cellphone photo on the cover of the magazine is of his own back, his red Samwell t-shirt. He's got a forearm braced on the wall, his other hand holding the face of someone small and blond, mostly blocked from view, who has his hands on Jack's chest and a blue hoodie tied around his waist. Emblazoned across the bottom of the cover are the words IS JACK ZIMMERMANN GAY? and it feels like someone just punched him in the stomach. (now with epilogue!)
Really lovely fic that has Bitty and Jack coming together during a party (adorable! sexy!) and then Jack being outed. Interesting scenario, and I really like how it all played out. Great read. [It's listed as part 2 in a series, but the first fic, while super awesome, isn't in the same verse as this one, which is why I'm reccing them separately.]

Title: evidence
Author: favicon applecrumbledore
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack, past Jack/Parse
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,405
Content/Warnings: first time, bottom!bitty
Summary: Bitty finds a photo booth strip and almost doesn't recognize Jack because he's not sure he's ever seen him grin off-ice before, and his hair is so long it curls around his ears, and he's so, so young. Someone else is next to him, and it takes Bitty a few long seconds to realize it's Kent Parson, with the same backwards cap and everything.
Super fabulous fic with Bitty and Jack having feelings for each other and dancing awkwardly around each other. Their relationship was just too freaking sweet, and holy jesus was the emotional sex at the end super hot! Some mildly confusing POV switching in places, but nothing too distracting. There is a sequel/alternate ending fic with some Bitty/Parse & Jack/Bitty/Parse, which I haven't read since it's not really my thing, but if it IS your thing, then I'd hazard a guess that it's pretty good as well. :)

Content/Warnings: outsider POV, het
Summary: Shitty Knight takes a post-graduation road trip. Four friends, six thousand miles, two tents, several embarrassing photos, a giant rabbit, three cops, and a bear.
Really interesting and well written fic. I loved Shitty's POV and the connection between him and Lardo and Jack and Bitty and all of them together was wonderful. I thought Lardo's character was wonderfully characterized, and this fic has one of the best polyamorous-type relationships I've read. Hard to describe, but I really enjoyed.

Title: The Left Hand of Godlessness

Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack, past Jack/Parse, background Shitty/Lardo
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 38,044
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!bitty, bottom!jack, addiction recovery
Summary: If Jack’s learned anything from Shitty, it’s that Jack deserves nice things now. There is not a timetable on happiness. And Shitty is certain a future means “fucking fuck all” if Jack’s “a miserable, broken robot”. And regardless of any promises, Jack is certain no one could protect him from Eric Bittle because even the armor of Jack’s recovery had done nothing in the face of southern hospitality and unconditional, unapologetic love.
Between Shitty and Bitty, Jack is spoiled with the now.
Wonderfully real fic that cover's Jack's addition and continuous recovery. Jack was really beautifully characterized, and the development between Jack and Bitty's relationship was perfection.

Word Count: 70,791
Summary: His first year in the NHL isn't easy, but Jack has spent his entire life playing through the hurt.
Really wonderful fic that starts with the end of Jack’s senior year and goes through his first year in the NFL. I loved Jack’s characterization here, his anxiety and loneliness, his love for Bitty and his almost paralyzing fear. Beautifully written with a really satisfying ending. There is also a fourth sequel fic that details Jack and Bitty’s life together in the first year or so after Bitty graduates. They definitely have their problems, but it’s a really lovely and moving fic.

Summary: For the Can't Hardly Wait challenge, I present to you: my on-the-fly-written account of Bitty and Jack's Skype conversations between May and July. It starts modestly and gets deeper & more heated as it goes on.
Oh this was just the sweetest thing! It's the story of Bitty and Jack's developing relationship from the graduation kiss all the way up until they see each other again in July. I loved how the author develops things through skype calls and shows how a long-distance relationship between them could work. Lovely and sexy fic, and I sincerely hope the author adds more of this verse! I'd love to see what happens when they finally physically are in the same room together and some of that crackling sexual tension finally has an outlet. :D.

Dex makes a sound like he’s sucking a breath through his teeth.
“Aren’t you?” Farmer looks back and forth between Derek and Dex, and then blushes. “Oh, shit. I’m sorry, I just assumed.”
Such a sweet fic! Really loved the characterizations here, and the ending was too freaking sweet.

Really wonderful Harry Lives AU that deals with the aftermath of Harry's "death." Loved Eggsy's hurt and anger, and the way their relationship heals and develops felt very natural. The sex was crazy hot, and I really liked how the fic addressed the potential issues on Harry's side of things after the church massacre and being shot. Wonderful read.

Summary: Eggsy slumps against the wall, feeling every bruise like it's new, and tells the truth.
"You want to make sure I jump when I'm told?" he demands. "It'd better be you doing the telling, Harry."
This fic is super hot. Seriously. The first one was gloriously sexy, and then we have the gorgeous second fic, with some really lovely characterizations. I loved the slightly different take with the lack of angst over Harry being alive, and the lack of too much "will they, won't they" back and forth. The relationship develops more slowly, but very surely, and the whole things is lovely and super fucking hot.

Inspired by Pottermore entry: #F5. Potions
Rating: PG
Medium: Pencil sketch.
Word Count: 510
Warnings/Content: None.
Summary: The weather is rotten, Draco’s been hanging out with the potion mob again, and Harry just wants his dinner. Featuring cats, bad knitting, terrible taste in pizza, and more potions ingredients than you can poke a stick at.

Another one of my prompts! This was one of my silliest ones, and I was so thrilled when I saw it was claimed, because I was super curious what the creator would come up with. And this is so much fun! Draco channeling Snape at his most potiony-dramatic, and Harry delightfully exasperated. The three art panels art gorgeous, and the little drabble to go along with is perfect. Though, I must point out that, while all of it is fabulous, the second art panel, where we get to see Draco in his potion's lab, is seriously freaking awesome and impressive. I seriously stared for five minutes straight, zooming in on all of the little jars and giggling with delight at all of the little details. So much fun!

Rating: PG
Word Count: 2,370
Summary: Having met each other again in an unconventional setting, Harry and Draco begin an unconventional relationship. Now Harry is faced with a challenge he isn't looking forward to: telling his friends.

This was written for one of my prompts at [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair's Pottermore fair, so full disclosure, but it was just super lovely. It's a really quick read, and a wonderful little peak into Harry's head as he gets ready to tell Ron & Hermione about his new relationship. We get to learn about how Draco and Harry met, and how Draco makes Harry feel, and that, even though he knows Ron and Hermione will be supportive, he's still nervous because he wants it to go well. Sweet, charming little ficlet well worth a read!

[Also, decided to use some of the rectober banners [livejournal.com profile] nerak_rose made because they are lovely, and I wanted a thinner banner. Plus, variety!]

Reveals just went up at [livejournal.com profile] hp_drizzle, and since it's rectober and all, I figured I'd post a few quick recs. I only picked a couple of my very favorites, but there were 40 submissions this year with all sorts of pairings, so I definitely recommend checking out the masterlist for more! :D

It has been a long while since I read enough awesome Sterek in one month for them to merit their own rec post! But I've been trying to work through some of my "Marked For Later" fics on AO3, and some of my fav authors posted some Sterek this past month, so there's a mix of new and old. :D


banner by [livejournal.com profile] capitu

Title: Red in Tooth
Author: favicon the_ragnarok
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,200
Content: established relationship, biting, light blood play, vampire!kink
Summary: Stiles squirms. “Like, they have the whole narcotic bite thing? And I kind of like having things in my mouth but people are wusses and it’s like, No, Stiles, it hurts, No, Stiles, I need to retain the use of my fingers, and at some point I started fantasizing about biting that made whoever just melt and let me—”
Really hot and a very cool and clever take on this kink.

Title: lick me, lave me, love me
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tryslora
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,373
Content: established relationship, xenophilia, implied bottom!stiles, rimming, lip service comment meme
Summary: It’s not the first time he’s woken like this, a huge paw pressed against his chest, holding him in place. Derek likes to groom him in the morning, likes to let the wolf explore Stiles, taste him.
Super hot established relationship fic with wolf Derek "grooming" Stiles.

Title: Set It Running Free
Author: favicon KuriKuri
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,765
Content/Notes: dub-con, switching, bottom!derek, mostly bottom!stiles
Summary:So after reading several fics back to back that talked about Derek’s “wolf” like it was a separate entity, I need The Fic. You know, the one where Derek’s “wolf” is so separate that Derek's “human” is unaware of what it does. And what it does is Stiles. Frequently.
(Note: Stiles is receptive to Derek/Derek's wolf's advances. The dub-con is more on Derek's part.)
Really interesting concept with Derek's "human" and "wolf" parts being more separate. Which of course leads to wolf sexy times with Stiles that Derek doesn't really remember. Super hot. :D

Title: Delicate? I Went Through That Phase (Part 3 of the Happy Birthday, Mr. Hale Series)
Author: favicon mikkimouse
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,817
Warnings: AU: Human, dad!derek, age difference, light D/s, dirty talk, role play, spanking, desk!sex
Summary: Stiles is coming back from college. Derek has some ideas about how they can spend their time. Smut ensues.
Seriously hot update to a sexy, fun series! Loved the teacher/student role play here, and the little glimpses of ~feelings~ were wonderful.

Title: la raison ne connaît point (Part 2 of the Mates Series)
Author: favicon aprettysmalldose
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, implied Allison/Scott
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,237
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, underage, barebacking, mates, bottom!stiles, outdoor!sex, road head, no hale fire, hale family lives, dirty talk
Summary: 'that one classy-ass fic where derek brings stiles home with him but doesn't know his name'
Super fucking hot sequel! Stiles's voice is amazing, and getting to see more of their reactions post-mating, and meeting the Hales, was such a treat!

Title: Show Me How We Can Escape
Author: favicon secondstar
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Kira
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,858
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Hollywood, actor!stiles, switching, mostly bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles needed a vacation. He deserved it, after working nonstop. Australia felt like a world away from the limelight; just what he needed. He didn't expect to meet Derek, though.
Fun and super sexy fic! The ending was maybe a bit rushed, but overall a really enjoyable read!

Title: Everything's Better Under the Sea
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tryslora | favicontryslora
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Aiden/Lydia/Jackson, Allison/Scott, Isaac/Cora, Erica/Boyd, Laura/Jordan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 19,985
Warnings: AU, creature!fic, mermaid!stiles, shapeshifter!derek, surfer!derek, laura lives
Summary: Everything changes when Derek goes under while surfing, hits his head on a board, and sees a man with a tail swimming away. He wants to know who that was, and what it has to do with Beacon Hills, the one place he never meant to come back to.
Really cool AU! I loved the sort of twist on the Beacon Hills mythology and the soul mate trope, and the ending was great.

Title: Your Majesty
Author: favicon grimm
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Lydia/Jackson
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,291
Warnings: AU: Human, ceo!derek, camboy!stiles, sex toys, first time, switching, bottom!derek, mostly bottom!stiles
Summary: It wasn’t like he was a pro or whatever, but like any teenage boy he’d spent a lot of time jerking off, and there were a lot of people on the internet that liked watching that sort of thing. And while the idea of doing actual porn - like, porn with another person’s dick in his ass porn - kind of made him uncomfortable, jerking off by himself in front of a camera sounded okay. If you’re good at something, never do it for free, right?
Prostitution-type fics can be a little hit or miss for me, but I really enjoyed this one. I loved how both Stiles and Derek came across here, and I think the potential creepy factor was definitely reduced by giving us both POVs. The sex was hot, and it was sweet watching them get to know each other. Overall a really enjoyable read. :)

Title: Awake and Unafraid
Author: favicon Green
Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles, background past Scott/Allison
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 31,346
Content/Warnings: AU: Fusion, Awake Fusion, parallel universes, mates, magic!stiles, first time, bottom!stiles
Summary: Since the car accident that took one of his parents (or both, or neither), Stiles has been living two alternating parallel lives.
Really cool fusion with Stiles essentially living two parallel lives. I thought the whole concept was brilliantly executed, and I loved seeing the different characters in each verse and how they differed and stayed the same. Super hot fic, with a clever plot, and satisfying ending.

Today I am going to rec ALL THE FANDOMS! But seriously, though. I've been trying to read one longer non-HP fic per week so I can clear out my to-read list, and it's been a lot of fun. :)

Title: the first of many
Author: favicon venvephe
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,828
Content/Warnings: AU:Omega!Verse, alpha/beta/omega dynamics, omega!eggsy, alpha!harry, heat cycles, rimming, bottom!eggsy, knotting, mates, marking, biting, scenting, desk!sex
Summary: Eggsy should have seen this coming.
Looking back, he should have payed more attention to the calendar; he’d been good about taking his suppressants until the last few weeks, when the training exercises and elimination tests had gotten so intense that he’d started to forget the little pills. Dealing with a heat doesn’t seem as horrific after jumping out of an airplane, especially when you’d under the assumption that your ‘chute was faulty, and taking the suppressants was one of those little things that got shuttered off to the side in his mind. If he’d been paying attention it may not have come to - this.
Because Eggsy’s in heat, and there’s only two ways it can go from here.
Crazy hot omega!verse AU with Eggsy unexpectedly going into heat and then him and Harry having some ridiculously hot sex.

Title: Patience and Sheer Determination
Author: favicon blacktofade
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 47,368
Content/Warnings: AU: Alternate First Meeting, fake/pretend relationship, rentboy!eggsy, bottom!eggsy, table!sex, barebacking
Summary: Harry goes undercover to infiltrate the circle of a corrupt overlord and is given Eggsy, a young prostitute, as a token of goodwill. Harry has to live with Eggsy and keep him safe, while maintaining his cover.
Such a brilliant fic! Loved the slight AU, with Harry coming across Eggsy in much less auspicious circumstances. But Eggsy's fire is still more than there, and the chemistry between them is fabulous. Interesting plot, and some seriously lovely relationship development. Plus, hot sex! :D

Title: the parting glass
Author: favicon kirkaut
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy, implied Roxy/Merlin, mention of brief Eggsy/Tilde and past Eggsy/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 48,525
Content/Warnings: AU: Harry Lives, references to past non-con of the rentboy!eggsy variety, rimming, bottom!eggsy
Summary: The words shrivel and die between them.
Harry's chest hitches on an indrawn breath. The contours of his face are cast dramatically in the fiery hues of the street at night, highlighting the wrinkle in his forehead and the soft slope of his chin and the silvery pink of his scar.
He's beautiful, and Eggsy loves him.
“I miss you.” The confession falls. It lands heavily onto the pavement, cracking into the asphalt. “You're alive, you're right in fucking front of me, and I still miss you.”
God, this fic is just gorgeous! I adore he characterization here and Eggsy's reaction to Harry coming back from the dead is both heartbreaking and painfully realistic. Really beautiful build-up and some seriously hot sex!


Title: We Pull These Jobs To Make A Little Money (No One Gets Hurt If They Don't Act Funny)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] leashy_bebes | favicon leashy_bebes
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, Leon/Elena, Will/Freya, Gwen/Lancelot, past Leon/Morgana
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 48,918
Content/Warnings: AU: Modern, AU: Non-Magical, bottom!merlin, implied switching
Summary: Arthur and his friends have been making their money this way for years. It's all they know and they're good enough to get away with it. Merlin grudgingly works in a bank, wishing his days away. Their worlds collide and everything changes.
AKA: Bank robbers of the round table.
OMG this fic is awesome! I love Arthur and his merry band of bank robbers, and adorable Merlin as a bank teller was perfect. I adored the connection between Merlin and Arthur here, and the sex was just unbelievably hot. Really fun plot, and just an all-around super enjoyable read!


Title: Shut Up And Take A Fucking Bath
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,633
Content/Warnings: established relationship, intercrural sex, maassage!fic, dirty talk, bbtp 2015
Summary: Agron has no appreciation for the comforts of a well-appointed bath. Luckily, Nasir is happy to educate. (Such an altruist, that Nasir.)
Nasir teaches Agron about the pleasures of Roman baths and good god is it delicious! Super hot, and I loved both of their voices here.

Title: Revelationes In Tangendo
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,568
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!nasir, rimming, bbtp 2015
Summary: It still feels odd to choose. To be not only allowed but expected to shape his own purpose every day, in little things and large. Who to fight for. Who to break words or take meals with. Who to fuck.
Gorgeous take on the "missing scene" from Season 2 when Mira interrupts. Super hot, and a really fantastic take on Nasir. Just lovely.

Title: Weather the Storm
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,186
Content/Warnings: established relationship, implied switching, semi-public!sex
Summary: In which Agron and Nasir deal with the snow storm in absolutely the only medically approved way one should ever deal with life-threatening cold. (Also, there’s angsty musings about Castus. If that turns you off, I cannot help you, because Castus is divine and I want a threesome more than I’ve ever wanted a pony, so there.)
Really gorgeous stolen moment between Agron and Nasir during the storm in Mors Indecepta. They both felt beautifully in-character, and Nasir's thoughts on Castus were particularly realistic, if a bit heartachey.


Title: Desperate Games
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Barca/Peitros
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,770
Content/Warnings: bottom!barca, implied switching, bbtp 2015
Summary: In a life that requires deception to survive, Pietros is ever bent on truth, and Barca fears every day it might mark their undoing.
Seriously gorgeous writing and an amazingly characterized Barca. Sexy and sweet.


Title: Timeline Series (3 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] unforgotten | favicon Unforgotten
Pairings: Charles/Erik, implied Alex/Armando
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 31,625
Content/Notes AU: No Beach Divorce (sort of), time travel, bottom!charles, implied switching
Summary: After Magneto of an X2-ish future succeeds in the unthinkable, Charles sends his consciousness back to 1962 to guide Erik away from the path that will lead to the genocide of the human race forty years hence. Charles knows that Erik has always loved him, and intends to use this knowledge + sex to seduce Erik away from his ideals in his youth. There's no way this well-thought-out, sensible, debugged and 100% bulletproof plan can possibly go wrong.
Really cool set of fics that have Charles going back in time when he first met Erik and seducing him for the greater good. Interesting, and funny, and sexy reads!

I was in a bit of a Stony mood recently, and managed to dig up a few awesome little ficlets. :D

ALSO, I should take this moment to mention that I participated in the [livejournal.com profile] avengersfest exchange! It was my first exchange and my first non-HP fest, and I have some ~thoughts~ I will be sharing about that later, but in the meantime, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the awesome fic I received, To Strike A Match, which is a Stony soulmark fic, and super adorable. :D

Just some super hot threesome sexy times! Loved the little glimpses into their relationship, and the whole thing is sexy and fun. This fic was inspired by/is a continuation of the drabble Making Out by [livejournal.com profile] sdkshelly, which you don't have to read for this to make sense, but I super recommend it.


Title: The Not-So-Mysterious Mystery of the Marshmallow Peeps
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mysecretashes
Pairing: Albus Severus/James Sirius
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~1,700
Content/Warnings: sibling incest, bottom!james, dirty talk, light D/s
Summary: Albus had always known that James was a little off in the head, but this was on the side of ridiculous.
Oh this was funny and crazy hot! Loved the ridiculous marshmellow porn, and cockwhore!James is an eternal favorite.

Title: Festive Errands
Author: [livejournal.com profile] leashy_bebes
Pairing: James Sirius/Teddy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~2,200

Word Count: ~4,700
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!james, rimming, healer!teddy, outdoor!sex
Summary: Teddy and James are both overworked and exhausted, and it's beginning to take a toll on their relationship. When they both get a long weekend off, they take advantage of it.
Really lovely and sexy fic with Teddy and James reconnecting after their busy jobs keep them from spending quality time together.


Title: I'm Worried About Harry
Author: [livejournal.com profile] amorette
Pairing(s): Hermione/Harry/Ron, Hermione/Ron, past Harry/Ginny
Word Count: 4,364
Rating: NC-17
Content/Warnings: threesome, m/f/m, pegging, light D/s, bottom!harry
Summary: Someone has to help Harry figure his shit out, and Hermione is going to be the one, and not for totally selfless reasons because have you seen Harry? He’s gorgeous. And he’s hers. And Ron is gorgeous and hers. And she wants to fuck both of them, basically. That should really be the summary. Hermione wants to fuck them both. So she does.
God, this is smoking hot with some seriously lovely moments! I just adore the relationships between the three of them here, how strong they are and how clearly they all love and trust one another. And the smut is just ridiculously hot.


Title: Worship
Author: [livejournal.com profile] rastavan
Pairing: Dean/Parvati
Rating: NC-17

I'm so excited that Rectober is back! I'm planning on doing a flurry of recs now, and then another batch towards the end of the month. And possible some in between- we'll see!


banner by [livejournal.com profile] raitala

But I figured I'd start the month off right with a handful of recs from my glorious OTP! There are a few older fics (that I finally got around to reading/rereading) and a few newer fics that my mega-talented f-list posted during September. I've been in a major H/D mood lately. Well, I always am, really, but the feels have been extra strong this past month, and I'm uber excited for [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair tomorrow!

Title: Draco/Rest
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] zeitgeistic
Pairings: Harry/Draco, past Hermione/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,661
Content/Warnings: past character death (Not H/D), old age, estrangement, marriage!fic (sort of), bottom!draco, implied switching
Summary: Harry’s estranged husband has never really been estranged to him.
This is a heartbreaking little thing, but just so beautifully written.

Title: Leather Bound Histories (Part two of the The Vanishing Department Series)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] dicta_contrion
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,188
Content/Warnings: established relationship, unusual careers, face-fucking, dirty talk
Summary: “Like the time you Vanished your favourite cock ring?”
“More like the time I Vanished my old Quidditch leathers.”
“The first time or the second?”
“The first.”
A timestamp to The Vanishing Department, occurring halfway between Chapter 8 (drinks, Dickens and bedrooms) and the Epilogue.
Wonderfully sexy update to one of my favorite H/D fics! The sex was super hot, and the underlying emotion made everything even sexier.

Title: Unexpected Turn
Author: [livejournal.com profile] oakstone730
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, past Draco/Victor Krum, mention of Ginny/Neville
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 26,881
Content/Warnings: AU: Non-Magical, road trips, american!harry, mechanic!harry, switching, rimming, bottom!draco, bottom!harry, some dirty talk, first person POV
Summary: English real estate developer Draco Malfoy is in America to find his long lost cousin and escape a scandal. When his car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, his trip takes an unexpected turn. Non-Magical AU.
OMG, this fic is so amazing! I love a good Non-Magical AU, but I'm pretty picky about them, and this one is just perfection! The author manages to include so many characters and so many little canon events and details in such fun and creative ways that it's just such a joy coming across them all. I adore the juxtaposition of rich, high-class Draco and low-brow, American mechanic Harry. The chemistry between these two is just electric, and JFC sexy mechanic Harry is everything I ever wanted in life. The sex is incredibly hot, and the ending has just the right amount of sweet hopefulness. Really fabulous read, cannot recommend enough!

Title: Here and Now
Author: favicon Morgan_Elektra
Pairing: Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron, mention of past Harry/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,829
Content/Warnings: bottom!harry, rimming, implied switching, dirty talk
Summary: It’s been 5 years since the end of the war, but less than a week since Rita Skeeter outed Harry on the front page of The Prophet — and made some rather scandalous insinuations about him and his blond former nemesis. A chance (or is it?) encounter on a street corner reveals just how much has changed… and what remains the same. An over-sized courgette, some olive oil, a bottle of wine, and Ed Kowalczyk make things extra interesting.
Really lovely, sexy fic! It gets a bit overly descriptive at times and maybe moved a little too fast, but I really just adored this confident Draco and adorably smitten Harry. And the sex was crazy hot!

Title: He Was He and I Was Bunny
Author: [livejournal.com profile] bryoneybrynn
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Draco/Blaise, brief Harry/Charlie, background Ron/Hermione
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 37,345
Content/Warnings: eighth year, animagus!fic, first time, rimming, bottom!draco, implied switching, hd inspired 2009
Summary: The war is over and “eighth year” is about to begin at Hogwarts. But for Harry and Draco, nothing is quite the same. Harry’s looking for an escape, Draco’s looking for a friend. Does a little black bunny hold the answers for both of our boys?
Such a lovely eighth year fic with Harry becoming an adorable bunny animagus, and then Draco stumbling upon him and taking a liking to him. Harry and Draco were both really great in this, and watching their feelings grow and develop was wonderful. The sex was super hot and meaningful, and the whole fic was just a joy to read.

Title: On a Clear Day
Author: [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 41,519
Content/Warnings: EWE, unusual jobs
Summary: Draco Malfoy is waiting for his real life to begin, and it appears that he’s not the only one. Coffee, charity, and the wisdom of the elderly.
This fic is such a delight! Harry as a shut-in was a very interesting read, and Draco here is fantastically characterized. I loved his voice, and his banter with Harry, and his humour in general as he worked to restore the Malfoy name. Sort of a gentle story, but so lovely, and a really wonderful connection and build between Harry and Draco.

Title: Before the World Was Made
Author: [livejournal.com profile] daftfear
Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, background Hermione/Ron
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 42,576
Content/Warnings: auror!harry, accidental bonding!fic, bottom!harry
Summary: Draco has done everything in his power to leave the past behind him. He’s established himself a successful business and built a reputation around the quality of his work and the breadth of his knowledge. But when aurors show up at his shop one afternoon, seeking his expertise on a peculiar item of questionable origins, they completely overthrow the precarious balance in Draco’s life. Trust Potter to bring danger and destruction in his wake, along with a painful reminder of all the things Draco is trying to forget.
Bonding!fics are one of my favorite tropes and this one was really wonderful! I loved Draco here, and watching him come to terms with the bond, fighting it but also writing it at the same time, was great. The sexual tension between them is really fabulous and the plot was interesting and well-paced. Fun read. :)

I play around in a lot of different fandoms and I try to check in every month or so and see if anything new has been written or if there are any must-read fics I missed the first time around. I didn't read too much in these fandoms in the past month or so, but what I read, I liked! :D

The John Blake/Bane pairing from The Dark Knight Rises is actually a completely new fandom for me. One of my favorite Sterek authors, Circe6, mentioned that she had written a Blake/Bane fic, and I adored Joseph & Tom together in Inception (as evidenced by my love of Arthur/Eames) and I liked the movie, so I thought I would give it a go. Definitely an interesting pairing with a lot of darker fics. Not a ton written for them (not surprising since they never actually had any screen time together....), but there were a few fics that I really enjoyed.

I've been reading ALL about "The Johnlock Conspiracy" theory (TJLC) on tumblr and WOW are people thorough! For those of you who aren't familiar, TJLC is basically the idea that the writers of BBC Sherlock have written the entire show with the idea that eventually John and Sherlock will become a canon romantic pairing. And people have come up with a TON of analysis supporting this argument. Not sure if I necessarily believe it, but it's so interesting reading about everybody's ideas. If your interested deducingbbcsherlock on tumblr has written a ton of metas on the subject, and this one is a great place to start for an overview of why TJLCers believe Johnlock will become canon.

Either way, reading about it put me in a Sherlock mood, so I had to scamper off and find some good fic to read! And I found enough excellent ones for the fandom to warrant it's very own rectober post! :D

Charles/Erik from X-Men was this past month's obsession. I got into them a while ago, but I think I got distracted by something else shiny before I really had a chance to read/rec too many things. So I figured it was time to remedy that! This might be the largest of my rec posts this month and there is a good amount of variety here as well. :D

I'm [obviously] very attracted to pairings that have that love/hate dynamic, so I don't think I ever stood a chance against these two. Getting more back story in First Class and seeing their chemistry together was really just the nail in the coffin. Such a wonderful pairing, and so much history to play around with.

My favorite recent Teen Wolf reads! It still seems like I haven't been reading as much in this fandom lately, but I think part of that is because I've become a bit more discerning with what I spend my time reading. That and I seems to be adding fics to my "to-read" page on AO3 faster then I am actually reading them...

Mostly Sterek fics, as usual, with a few rare pairings, and even a pairing I had never read before!
