I have a few different rec lists, so here is a handy-dandy post linking you to all of them. Be warned, I am a huge fan of smut and almost all of my recs are rated R or NC-17, so if you are looking for lower-rated fics, this is not the place for you. This is also almost exclusively slash pairings, though every once in awhile a het pairing manages to sneak its way in there.

I've recently started dabbling in fanfic writing, so if you're interested, you can find that HERE.

If you are curious about my likes/dislikes/preferences in fic because you want to make me something (or because you're just nosy), you can find those HERE.

Really not too many recs here for two reasons. One, I didn't read a ton of fic this past month, due to my crazy writing goal. And two, what fandom reading I did do, was primarily in the Criminal Minds fandom, hence yesterday's rec post. Still, a couple gems were read and recced! :D

Title: tu ne t'intéresses pas au sexe?
Author: favicon heyfightme
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,543
Content/Warnings: established relationship, implied switching
Summary: bitty has shown himself to be uncertain and nervous about sex. but, hey, that doesn't mean he doesn't want it. talking is always helpful.
Really lovely fic with newly established Jack and Bitty figuring out what they like together and Bitty becoming more comfortable with sex.


Title: Better Slow it Down
Author: favicon BeautifulSoup
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,006
Content/Warnings: established relationship, car!sex
Summary: Ronan was sprawled indolently across the seat, in blatant violation of seatbelt laws. Adam might have believed it was just standard Lynch belligerence if it hadn’t been for the very intentional way his foot had been grazing against Adam’s ankle for the past fifteen minutes, or the way he had been looking at him from under his eyelashes since he and Gansey had arrived at St Agnes, or the way he was biting his lip while giving him that look.
Seriously smoking hot fic with Adam and Ronan getting busy in the Pig while Gansey could come back at any minute. :D

Title: say my name and i'll lie in the sound
Author: favicon oftirnanog
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,002
Content/Warnings: established relationship, first time, bottom!ronan
Summary: It’s almost too much, Ronan splayed out in front of him, all hard lines and sharp angles, his fingers trailing up and down Adam’s ribs like he’s something to be treated with care, not fragile, but deserving of softness.
Really lovely and super hot fic with Ronan and Adam's first time.

I didn't manage too much multi-fandom reading this month. Between the craziness of work & RL, the busyness of modding/proofing, and every spare fandom reading minute being dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] hd_fan_fair, there wasn't a lot of time for other fandoms to make it on the list. But there were a few gems this month. :)

Title: blaspheme
Author: favicon kirkaut
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
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.


Title: in the soft of the early evening glow
Author: favicon redhoods
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: R
Word Count: 2,720
Content/Warnings: established relationship
Summary: When he had gone back to school in January, Ronan’s scalp had still been shaved. This is the longest Adam’s ever seen it, outside of pictures from before Niall Lynch’s death. He wonders if Ronan’s growing it out purposefully or if he simply hasn’t taken the time to trim it back down, then thinks that Ronan rarely does anything without a purpose.
Ronan runs a hand through his hair and more curls make themselves known. Want hits him then, hot and heavy, curling in his gut.
Lovely fic with Adam not being able to come home for entire semester, and when he comes back, Ronan's hair has grown out. Which, of course, he finds incredibly sexy. Sweet and hot little slice of life.


Title: A Deck With a View
Author: favicon zjofierose
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,921
Content/Warnings: RPF, established relationship, secret relationship, intercrural sex
Summary: "It feels like the day is impermeable, wrapped in the cotton wool of sea fog and cut off from the rest of the world. Their phones struggle to find signal, the freeway is miles away, and even the seagulls are minding their gossiping tongues. It’s like they exist in between the lines on a page, like they’ve fallen off the edge of the world, and, Zach thinks, he could get used to this."
aka: Chris and Zach rent a beach house.
This was so great! The connection between Zach and Chris was lovely, and their stolen vacation together was lovely, if a little bittersweet. The tone here was wonderful, and I loved the hopeful ending.

I read a little bit in a lot of different fandoms this month! Mostly I was reading published works in September, but I still managed to sneak in some fanfic! :D

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: The Hospitality of Hobbits
Author: [livejournal.com profile] diemarysues | favicon diemarysues
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,865
Content/Warnings: bottom!bilbo
Summary: An important visitor deserves only the best of everything. My version of the "Bilbo seduces Thorin the first night they meet" trope.
Smoking hot fic with Bilbo offering Thorin a little extra hospitality...Delicious, delicious porn.


Title: Golden Ticket
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 11,216
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: Fusion, Willy Wonka Fusion
Summary: Arthur's nephew Charlie finds a golden ticket and wins a tour of the Eames Chocolate Factory. Yes, it's a story you already know, but this version has a lot more making out in edible gardens.
Super charming Willy Wonka fusion with Eames perfectly cast as Willy Wonka. Loved Arthur as the doting uncle and the connection between Eames and Arthur was lovely.


Title: Obedience
Author: [livejournal.com profile] bookshop
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,250
Content/Warnings: mild dub-con
Summary: idk, unredeemable smut? In which there is no consent because it's Merlin--like Arthur's going to ask him how he feels about anything, please.
Super hot blow job fic. Loved Arthur's voice in this one.


Title: Preserving Minutes
Author: favicon geoblock
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,834
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!ronan, recreational durg use, mind altering substance, stoned!sex
Summary: So Ronan (accidentally on purpose) dreams some devil's lettuce, and he and Adam get high. Obviously, sappy, drug-fueled sex ensues...
Lovely sexy fic with a wonderfully characterized Ronan, a really great dynamic between Ronan and Adam, and some super hot stoned sex! :)


Title: X Marks the Spot
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden | favicon thehoyden
Pairings: Charles/Erik, brief mentions of Charles/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,195
Content/Notes AU: Fusion, Indiana Jones Fusion, bottom!charles, rimming, first time, shared bed
Summary: The year is 1962, and Charles Xavier is a professor of archaeology who knows how his students feel, whether he wants to or not. He spends his spare time researching a mythical artifact, but he knows better than anyone that X never, ever marks the spot.
Sort of an Indiana Jones-type fusion that was immensely enjoyable. I loved the way the canon people and relationships fit really well into this 'verse, and the connection and build-up was really lovely. Hot sex, and a happy ending made this a wonderful afternoon read. :D

Decent spread this month. I actually read several more reccable fics towards the end of the month, but I've been swamped and haven't had the time to actually format them...So they'll be added to September. :D

Title: The Flag Unfurled
Author: favicon mistyzeo
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 11,305
Content/Warnings: established relationship, first time, bottom!bitty, car!sex
Summary: Jack arrives in Atlanta in the early afternoon on the third of July, and Eric has baked four pies overnight out of sheer nervousness. Nothing can go wrong. Everything is fine.
Really sweet and sexy fic that takes place during Jack's visit to Madison over the fourth of July. This is pretty much my headcanon of what happens, and I loved this seriously hot snapshot. :D


Title: Synchronicity
Author: favicon stereobone
Pairing: James Bond/Q
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,600
Content/Warnings: bottom!q
Summary: It goes on like that for months, and then Q realizes that James Bond is "hanging out" at his flat.
I think this is the first 00Q fic I read and still one of my absolute favorites. The characterizations are perfect, and I love how the relationship develops between these two. Plus, there's some seriously hot sex at the end. ;)


Title: Not at All Casual Series (2 Fics)
Author: favicon pendules
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,192
Content/Warnings: established relationship
Summary: Adam and Ronan slowly learn about casual affection that isn't casual at all.
Really lovely series showing Adam and Ronan right in the beginning of their relationship, learning how to be with one another, how to give and accept affection. Great characterizations and the second fic is wonderfully hot.

Title: Adam Parrish and the Scientific Method
Author: favicon poorchoices
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,082
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!ronan, first time
Summary: Adam explores his budding sexuality. Post-TRK.
Oh, this was lovely and so freaking hot! I loved logical Adam thinking about his physical attraction to Ronan and pushing it farther and farther. :D


Title: L'appel du vide Series (2 Fics)
Author: favicon jouissant
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,953
Warnings: established relationship, switching, bottom!spock, bottom!kirk, kid!fic
Summary: In which Jim pops another sort of question, and Spock needs time to think.

Title: Pretty Tied Up
Author: favicon semperama
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,615
Content/Warnings: RPF, bondage, breathplay, light D/s, tie!kink
Summary: Fill for the Pinto Kink Meme. Prompt: Zach tugs a little too harshly on Chris's tie and Chris realises he's turned on when Zach's done fixing him up
Super hot fic with Chris realizing he has a bit of tie!Kink and a thing for breathplay, and Zach being more than willing to indulge him.

Title: Blind Items

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,946
Content/Warnings: RPF, first time, rough sex, bottom!chris

Seriously freaking hot! Really, there are no words

Title: suture up your future
Author: favicon sidnihoudini
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,949
Content/Warnings: RPF, first time, rimming, bottom!chris
Summary: Bending at the knees to unceremoniously drop himself back down onto the sofa, Zach reaches for the remote and says, possibly joking, "God, you'd make the worst two beer queer ever."
"I've been mistaken for gay before." Chris sounds offended. Zach looks over at him, completely boggled. "Is your laptop around?"
Zach shakes his head and finally, finally changes the channel.
Wonderfully sexy fic with Chris and Zach ~watching porn together~ and then, of course, sex happens. Pretty much just awesome, filthy, smut.

Title: Faggot
Author: favicon littlebirdtold
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,076
Content/Warnings: RPF, AU: High School, teacher/student, rimming, barebacking, infidelity, bottom!chris, dub-con, homophobic language
Summary: This started as a response to this prompt and has taken on a life of its own: Teacher/Schoolboy Kink AU: Chris has been a bad boy, acting like a jerk. Mr. Quinto teaches him a lesson during detention…
Jesus this is hot. Not normally a huge RPF fan, but this is so AU it doesn't really read like it. Crazy freaking hot.

Title: I Cannot Tell a Lie
Author: Anonymous
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 10,903
Content/Warnings: RPF, AU: Politics, established relationship, secret relationship, barebacking, bottom!chris, homophobic language
Summary: If he wins the election, Zach will be the first gay president. Even if Chris, and the rest of the campaign staffers, are the only ones who know it.
Really wonderful fic! Loved the relationship between Chris and Zach here, and the political backdrop was super interesting and exciting.

Title: On Edge
Author: favicon SuedeScripture
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 11,589
Content/Warnings: RPF, shaving!kink
Summary: Zach shaves with a straight razor. Chris likes to watch.
OMG, I have such a think for shaving!kink and it was gorgeous here! Loved Chris being super into it, and Zach was as sexy as ever.

Title: Let's Stay Together
Author: favicon semperama
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 34,754
Content/Warnings: RPF, rimming, first time, bottom!chris, phone!sex, dirty talk
Summary: In which Chris thought he was straight, until Zach. It takes facing the fact he isn't going to be making movies with Zach every few years for Chris to realize that his feelings for him are more than platonic.
I loved that this fic actually starts off with Chris admitting his feelings for Zach, and then the two of them moving on from there, which I thought was a refreshing change of pace. I liked that there was still the discovery aspect as Chris figured out what exactly he wanted, but instead of angsting about it alone, he had Zach with him helping him along. Lovely and super hot.

I spent most of the month gorging myself on H/D fic, so this list is a little sparse this month. But here are some of the fics I read and enjoyed in other fandoms. :D

Title: all in, how could i not be
Author: favicon competentmonster
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: The Skype Dates
Author: favicon tiptoe39
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 73,328
Content/Warnings: phone sex
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.


Title: ignite our bones
Author: favicon pendules
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: R
Word Count: 1,136
Content/Warnings: established relationship
Summary: "So…that thing I just said," he starts as casually as possible.
"Don't worry about it. I assumed it was just the exhaustion. And, you know, the orgasm," Ronan deadpans, but he can see the corners of his mouth twitch like he's suppressing a smile.
Really lovely and sweet moment between Adam and Ronan. Quiet and sexy and lovely.

Title: all the stars are coming out
Author: favicon asael
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: R
Word Count: 5,612
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!adam
Summary: People normally give gifts on a birthday, and people normally receive them. It’s no one’s fault that Adam hasn’t done that since he was six years old, and isn’t sure how to react to it now.
Really lovely fic with Adam learning to become okay with receiving gifts and accepting that his friends love him. Really wonderful Adam characterization here. :D


Title: Fiction Romance
Author: [livejournal.com profile] entrenous88 | favicon EntreNous
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 30,079
Content/Warnings: AU: Mobster, AU: University, RPF, light D/s, first time, mob boss!zach, rentboy!chris, dub-con
Summary: Chris Pine, college student and nervous wreck, somehow gets in over his head with gambling debts. With no money to pay what he owes, he'll have to rely on the generosity of Mr. Zachary Quinto, a powerful mob boss with a shark-like grin and a keen interest in some of the other assets Chris has to offer.
OH, this fic is fabulous! Mob Boss Quinto is beyond delicious and the dynamic between him and Chris is seriously fantastic. Super freaking hot and just generally a ton of fun.

Not quite as much fanfic reading as usual this month, as I've been writing up a storm, and I actually started reading some published books again...

But some good ones below! And as this last week was a Check, Please! update week, I'm hoping to read lots of adorable fics in the near future. :D

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: 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: You Touch My Mind
Author: favicon aknightley
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,917
Content/Warnings: established relationship, rimming, implied bottom!ronan
Summary: Adam contemplates Ronan's tattoo. Spoilers for The Raven King.
Gorgeous and seriously smoking hot rimming and fingering fic. LOVE!


Title: the difference between going back and going home
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thepsychicclam | favicon thepsychicclam
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, various past relationships
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 34,219
Warnings: AU: Human, no hale fire, hale family lives, Laura lives, bottom!derek
Summary: Stiles and Derek were inseparable growing up, but then college, jobs, and life happened. When Stiles comes back to Beacon Hills a decade later, he doesn't expect to reconnect with Derek, and he sure doesn't expect to fall in love with him.
Really sweet AU with Stiles and Derek as childhood friends who've grown apart. It was lovely seeing Stiles move back to Beacon Hills, watching the two of them rekindle their friendship, and then see it grow into something more. Sort of a different vibe from a lot of AUs in that most everybody has sort of grown up and apart, which made for a refreshing change of pace.

Not too many recs this month, as most of my free time was spent writing, but still managed to find a few gems. :D

Title: quite new a thing
Author: favicon annundriel
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,676
Content/Warnings: established relationship, panty!kink
Summary: Bitty buys them on a whim.
OMFG this is hot as hell and beautifully written. Love the idea of Bitty wearing sexy panties for Jack, and Jack's reaction as perfection.


Title: Ivy and Diamonds (out-take directly following Chapter 41 of Sansûkh)
Author: favicon determamfidd
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,105
Content/Warnings: praise!kink, dirty talk, piercing!kink, implied switching
Summary: There's not a lot to do while waiting for someone to wake. After the last few weeks of fear and worry, the stillness is odd and unnerving.
Well, perhaps there's one or two things that could pass the time...
Lovely and super sexy outtake with Bilbo and Thorin finding ways to overcome the fact that they can't touch one another. Beautiful. [FYI: This is a “Deleted Scene” from Sansûkh, which is an amazing Thilbo & Gigolas WIP that I highly recommend. I think you’d probably be okay to read this fic without having read Sansûkh, but it’ll make a bit more sense if you read the main fic first. It's long but SO, SO WORTH IT.]


Title: I Seem to Be a Verb
Author: [livejournal.com profile] bookshop
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, Arthur/OMCs, background Mal/Cobb, past Arthur/Yusef & Eames/Fisher
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 93,873
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: Bookstore, AU: Fusion, Notting Hill Fusion, actor!eames, rimming, switching, bottom!eames, mostly bottom!arthur, light D/s
Summary: Notting Hill AU, written for the i_k prompt, "I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." Arthur owns a quirky hipster science bookstore. Eames is a world-famous mega-celebrity. Clearly this calls for a meet-cute.
Oh, this fic is just so wonderful! Beautifully written with fabulous characterizations and a connection between Arthur and Eames that just sizzles. There's no small amount of angst, but it makes the ending that much more satisfying when you get there. Plus the sex was seriously, seriously hot.


Title: A Thrill of Hope
Author: favicon bigboobedcanuck
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,059
Content/Notes: rimming, holiday!fic
Summary: Stiles crashes through the forest with Derek in his sights, stopping every so often to launch another snowball and duck one of Derek’s. Obviously Derek could outrun him in a heartbeat if he wanted to, but for some bizarre reason he apparently wants to hang out with Stiles and have an epic snowball fight. Maybe it’s a Christmas miracle. Or maybe Derek is just as bored and lonely as Stiles is.
Oh, this was just lovely and sexy and beyond sweet. Really wonderful little Christmas fic..

Title: (don't) blame it on the alcohol
Author: favicon wishingonalightningbolt
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,041
Warnings: barebacking, bottom!stiles, implied switching
Summary: Stiles brews wolfsbane beer in the hope of getting drunk with Derek - for ya know, male bonding purposes. With Scott still at Davis and everyone else so busy all the time, Stiles and Derek are the bestest of bros now, and it's only right that they be allowed to get sloshed together.
Unsurprisingly, Stiles catches the feels.
This was lovely! Super adorable watching Stiles and Derek bond and become closer, and Stiles begin to realize that he's totally in love with Derek. Luckily, Derek definitely returns those feelings. Sweet and hot!

I didn't read too much random fic this month because A) I was reading DTH & DD, and B) I had a little fling with 00Q (recs coming!) But here are a few things I read and loved in other fandoms this past month.

Title: Hold Me Close and Surrender
Author: favicon annundriel
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 2,743
Content/Warnings: established relationship
Summary: They've touched (some) and kissed (lots) and that's all it takes to make them cling, to make Jack's voice shake and Bitty’s heart thunder.
Really sweet and super sexy fic of Jack and Bitty going a little father than kissing for the first time.

This fic is awesome! The characterizations of Jack and Bitty are perfection, and I adored getting to see their relationship through these sexual snapshots. It's so obvious how much they love and care for one another, and the whole thing was hot as hell and beyond sweet.


Title: Time Isn't Real (but you're a constant)
Author: favicon SpiritsFlame
Pairing: Adam/Ronan, Gansey/Blue
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8

Summary: "Time is what prevents everything from happening at once." - Albert Einstein.
Adam wakes up in the future, learns a few things about himself, about time, and about his priorities. But mostly he just wishes that Time was doing it's job better.
Wow, there are no words to describe the amazingness of this fic! Seriously. The time travel aspect was really interesting and well done, and the whole plot in general is very engaging. The characterizations of all of the characters are seriously fantastic, but Ronan and Adam seriously shine. Really cool seeing the younger and older versions of Adam and Ronan and how they are the same and different. Definitely a must-read!


Title: Within Reach
Author: favicon littlebirdtold
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,839
Content/Warnings: (temporary) major character death, bottom!kirk, rimming
Summary: Four years into the Enterprise's voyage, Spock dies in a transporter accident on a routine mission. Jim slowly falls apart and develops an unhealthy obsession that, ultimately, brings Spock back
Bit of an angsty start to this one, but it all ends happily I promise and it's super hot to boot! Featuring a very oblivious Jim, but he gets it eventually. ;)


Title: It's All Just So Ridiculous
Author: favicon Tohias
Pairing(s): Sheriff Stilinski/Stiles Stilinski
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,883
Warnings: incest, parent/child incest, sex pollen, dub-con, intercrural
Summary: In which Stiles finds himself in the ridiculous position of pretending to be a prostitute and the Sheriff has to ‘rent’ his own son just to save him.
It’s an awkward night for everyone.
Really fabulously dirty and gritty fic that has the Sheriff and Stiles coming under the influence of some magical aphrodisiacs and then having to deal with the consequences. The guilt and tension was really pervasive and wonderfully done. The author has promised a sequel, and I really hope they deliver because this was great!

Dex makes a sound like he’s sucking a breath through his teeth.

Pairings: Steve/Tony, Tony/OCs, Steve/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 12,871
Content/Notes AU: Alternate First Meeting, bottom!tony, age difference
Summary: Steve never slept under the ice. Howard found him, and got him back, and Steve married Peggy, and Howard married Maria, and then there was Tony. This is the story of Tony growing up with Steve very much present in his life, and everything that changed because of it - and some things that didn't.
Really beautiful written and very cool AU, with Steve having been around all of Tony's life, and the MCU movies happening much earlier in Tony's life. LOVED the age difference here and the dynamics between Steve and Tony. Their relationship was wonderfully written, and the whole development was really spot on.

Super cute fic with a really great ensemble cast, and some beautiful mutual pining from Jack and Bitty.

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.

Or, five times Merlin and Arthur shag after waking up accidentally soulbonded together, and one time they don't.
Really lovely and super sexy fic with Merlin and Arthur accidentally getting soul-bonded without liking each other much. Which leads to lots of hot sex and of course ~feelings.

Title: The Lake

Content/Warnings: AU: Reincarnation, AU: Modern, bottom!merlin, memory loss, merlin holidays 2015

Since the spell, every year on the anniversary of Arthur’s death, Merlin returns to the lake like a migrant bird. It’s a compulsion he cannot overcome, but he doesn’t know why he does it.
Really lovely Modern Reincarnation type fic. Loved seeing Arthur get used to the modern world, and Merlin rediscover himself with Arthur.

Really fantastic fic with Spock and Kirk getting fake married to adopt an adorable Vulcan child, and of course there is glorious mutual pining. The characterizations are fantastic, and the build is really great. Very satisfying read.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 63,458
Content/Warnings: AU: Academy, teacher/student relationship, semi-public!sex, bottom!kirk, dub con elements

But when Spock discovers his partner of one night is Jim Kirk, a promising new cadet at Starfleet, he's torn between his rational decision to avoid intimate relationships and his increasing fascination with Jim. As Spock's normally orderly life starts to spin out of control, will his obsession with Jim prove his salvation or his undoing?

Derek knew it was going to be a bad idea, but he never could have predicted all of the ways that Stiles would end up turning his life upside down.
Really lovely fic with Omega!Stiles having to stay with Derek because his dad is hurt, and of course Derek is prickly and likes his space, but ends up warming up to the charming Stiles. Really sweet and enjoyable read.

Day 3

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

I posted a lot of stuff in this past year, and it's kind of hard to narrow things down, but..

1. What I'm Waiting to Find, James/Teddy - This fic was kind of a big deal for me. It's the longest thing I've ever written, and it was a fic that had been living in my head for a long while. I am pretty proud of how it turned out, and I've been having fun working on the prequel. :D

2. Trouble, Lily Luna/Ron - I had a lot of fun writing this one! I don't write much het, but I saw a prompt that spoke to me and I was ~inspired. It's super dirtywrong, which I love. Turns out I really like writing het as long as there is an element of wrongness to it. :D

3. Number One, Bitty/Jack (Check, Please! Fandom) - I am obsessed with the Check, Please! comic on tumblr, and a few days after reading I had to sit down and bang this one out.

In between bouts of writing and proofing for [livejournal.com profile] hp_nextgen_fest and [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised, I spent November reading through various fandoms. Normally I would probably separate some of these recs out into different posts, but since it's nearing the end of the month, I figured I'd just lump them all together. :)

Title: Driving Me Wild
Author: favicon nautilicious
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,561
Summary: Bittle swings his leg over the seat, his thighs spreading open. Jack swallows. (Or, Jack sees Bitty on a motorcycle and it ignites his pants pretty much on the spot.)

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 19,763
Content/Warnings: shower!sex, rimming, implied switching
Summary: “So we should ask Bits and Lardo to come with us to New York,” Shitty said.
Jack turned to look at him, frowning. “Seriously?”
“Yeah, man. I mean, I know this was supposed to be just you and me, but… We both know those two are gonna be part of our lives after graduation. It’d just be like. Getting a head start on it.”
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.

Word Count: 35,786
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: Lose It

Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,409
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!adam

Rating: R
Word Count: 1,400
Content/Warnings: established relationship, implied bottom!nasir
Summary: As it turns out, goats are hard work and entirely too fond of violent home invasion. 14 goat farm drabbles.
I really need all of the goat-farmer-Nagron fics in my life. This one was brilliant, and I adored all of the snapshots of Nasir and Agron's life after the war (with their goats).

Title: Do Not Wake
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17

Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,111

Word Count: 21,351
Content/Warnings: bottom!kirk
Summary: Spock and Jim crash-land on a planet, and Jim (rather predictably) is hurt, forcing Spock to confront certain truths that can't possibly be logical.
This was a wonderful fic. We've got hurt!Jim and pining and jealousy and broken bonds that all get resolved with some gooey feels and super hot sex!


Title: Our Memories Are Numbered
Author: favicon rufflefeather
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,105
Warnings: memory loss, rimming, implied bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles’ Jeep grinds to a halt, he sees someone running through the rain, he's not expecting it to be Derek. He's not expecting a Derek without any memories either, or an Alpha pack that's coming for all of them. He probably should've, because lately nothing goes the way he expects.
This is great! Love the amnesia trope here, and how it really makes for a softer, more open Derek. It was cool seeing what he might be like without his past weighing him down, and the connection between Derek and Stiles is electric. Interesting take on the Alpha pack, and overall just a really satisfying and sexy read.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.]

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. :)

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.

Really wonderful fic that starts with the end of Jack’s senior year and goes through his first year in the NFL.

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!
