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.

Title: Head Over High Heels
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gracerene
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~2,750
Content/Warnings: established relationship, mild cross-dressing, Arthur in red high heels, anal sex, partially clothed sex, bottom!arthur
Summary: Oh. Eames wasn't interested in wearing the heels. He wanted Arthur to wear them.
Notes: This fic was completely inspired by the show 3rd Rock from the Sun. There's a scene in the episode Red, White, & Dick (6x08), in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character wears some patent red high heels. And, of course, all my pervert brain could think of was ARTHUR WEARING HEELS FOR EAMES! The idea would just not leave me alone until I wrote it. This is my first time actually writing these two (though I've been reading them for ages) and they were, as expected, a ton of fun. :)

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] oceaxe for the wonderful beta work! <3

Sort of a grab bag of fandoms this month.

Title: Tony's Oral Ministrations and sequel Really a Sensitive Soul, Deep Down
Author: favicon eternalsojourn
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,869 total
Content/Notes rimming, bottom!tony, heavily implied switching
Summary: Tony really likes it when Steve is eager and embarrassed. Really really.
Really sexy fic with Tony loving how sensitive Steve is, and doing his best to make him fall a part. Hotter than hell, and I loved the little glimpses of Steve and Tony's characters and relationship here. (The first fic says it's a WIP, but I think it's complete)


Title: Fucking Great
Author: favicon ohfreckle
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,583
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, firefighter!eames, implied bottom!arthur
Summary: Eames is a firefighter. He loves dogs, taking selfies and Arthur, not necessarily in that order.
Smoking hot fic with Eames as a firefighter posing one of those sexy calendars, and, of course, Arthur is immediately attracted to him. Some sizzling chemistry and super hot sex.

Title: (This kind of Thing) Only Happens in my Dreams
Author: [livejournal.com profile] 1lostoneficspot | favicon 1lostone
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,365
Content/Notes: size!kink, [livejournal.com profile] i_reversebang 2016
Summary: None of this would have happened if Eames would have just shown him the fucking tattoos.
Super hot fic with Arthur being obsessed with Eames and his tattoos, and deciding to PASIV Eames out of his system. Which, of course, doesn't go quite according to plan--not that Arthur ends up minding!


Title: Highlight of My Lowlife
Author: favicon EggMuffin
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,812
Content/Warnings: AU, daddy!kink, light D/s, bottom!eggsy
Summary: Eggsy might be largely uneducated, but he’s not actually stupid. He knows that most people think he’s nothing more than a glorified whore, but the fact is that Eggsy is currently on vacation in Cape Verde, while most of his critics have to deal with the shitty November weather in England. This is not the life Eggsy had in any way imagined or planned, but if an attractive older gentleman wants to take him on expensive vacations and buy him nice things, he’s certainly not going to complain.
Super fucking hot AU with Sugar Daddy Harry and a cheeky Eggsy building their relationship slowly and culminating in some amazingly hot sex.


Title: Fight The Wind & Wait For You
Author: favicon hewhomustnotbejames
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,739
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!ronan, rimming
Summary: Adam's back in town for his 21st birthday.
Pretty much just a super freaking hot PWP with ALL THE SEX.

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

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 did a lot of reading in random fandoms this past month! Partially because I've been trying to work through some of my "to-read" backlog.

Title: twitter porn doesn't deserve a title
Author: favicon Aja
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,398
Content/Notes: office!sex, desk!sex
Summary: Eames tells eager, subby little Arthur exactly how he'll take it. And then shows him.
This is pretty much the hottest thing ever. That is all.

Title: Don't Think About Elephants
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 3,192
Summary: IO, during the watch party today, speculated on whether Cobb had to drive around in Yusuf's dream picking everyone up. Somehow, this is what came of that.
Such a funny and sexy and silly little thing!

Title: A Delicate Art
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 3,363
Summary: Four shots of tequila is all it takes to get Arthur drunk.
Such an adorable fic! Drunk Arthur is always a treat, and I really just loved the characterizations here.


Title: The Gentleman is Not for Sale (But He is for Rent)
Author: favicon mongoose_bite
Artist: favicon mizore
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 53,089
Content/Warnings: AU: Modern, AU: Prostitution (sort of), praise!kink, intercrural, light daddy!kink, bottom!eggsy
Summary: When Michelle won the National Lottery, life became slightly easier for Eggsy, but no less complicated. Their new social circle neither likes nor respects them, despite Michelle's best efforts, and for Eggsy the feeling is mutual. Meeting the toffs up close only confirms what he's always suspected; money does not make you a gentleman.
It does, however, allow you to rent one. An Ossan Rental/Reverse Sugar Daddy AU.
Fun and sexy fic! Really enjoyed the role reversal here, with Eggsy having just won the lottery, and Harry as an ex-tailor, turned gentleman-for-hire. Lovely characterizations and the connection between them both was lovely. Plus some great side characters. :)


Title: And No Birds Sing
Author: [livejournal.com profile] omi_ohmy
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 34,783
Content/Warnings: memory loss, amnesia!fic, ambiguous/open ending, canonical major character death, first time, bottom!merlin
Summary: Merlin has been cursed and lives as a hermit, knowing he has lost something, although he cannot remember what. One day he finds a knight, weak and injured, by the lakeside.
Oh goodness, this fic killed me! The writing here is gorgeous, and the longing tone of melancholy is really fabulously done. It's definitely not a fluffy fic, and the ending is not what I would call happy, but the whole thing really is so beautiful and meaningful. It's the kind of fic that will stay with you for a while.


Title: Powder
Author: favicon what_alchemy
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,852
Warnings: sex pollen, sex toys, bottom!kirk
Summary: Kirk gets a face full of sex pollen on an away mission. He’s ready to take matters into his own hands when the object of his secret affections makes an offer of assistance.
Wicked hut sex-pollen fun!


Title: Fascination
Author: favicon kalpurna
Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,314
Content/Warnings: underage, first time, bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles is sitting in English class when the thought first occurs to him. They’ve been talking about the ending of Jane Eyre, and Rochester’s fate, and the concept of disability as punishment, and his mind jumps to Derek ordering him to cut off his arm, and he wonders idly whether the arm would have grown back or, more likely, just healed over the stump immediately, and huh, he thinks with a sudden thrill, huh, there’s no way Derek Hale is circumcised.
Super hot old-school fic with Stiles wondering (fantasizing) if Derek is circumcised, and then getting quite the practical demonstration.

Title: This Started As Only Make Believe
Author: favicon thepsychicclam
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Derek/Jennifer
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 44,197
Content/Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, dad!derek, teacher!stiles
Summary: Derek is trying (and failing) to juggle his career, coach lacrosse, and raise his 5 year old werewolf daughter. When he adds his bitter ex-wife and his daughter's slight attachment to him, Derek knows he doesn't have any time for a life of his own - and definitely no time for the super cute daycare teacher.
I do love me some dad!Derek, especially when partnered with awesome teacher!Stiles. :D Rose as Derek's daughter was too adorable, and I really loved the slow development of Stiles and Derek's relationship. Jennifer as the complicated, bitter ex of Derek's added for an interesting twist.

I actually got a ton of fanfic reading done this past past month. Partly due to my plane trip, which gave me an excuse to finally read some long!fic. :D

Title: shine for you
Author: favicon buchanan
Pairing(s): Eric/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.

Title: walk with you through everything
Author: favicon idrilka
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: R
Word Count: 6,619
Content/Warnings: established relationship, future!fic, valentines please! fest 2016
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: the last kick of courage
Author: favicon buchanan
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: R
Word Count: 6,765
Content/Warnings: valentines please! fest 2016
Summary: He has to be better than this.
Really lovely Jack-centric fic that starts after winter break his senior year. Loved Jack's head space here and his connection with Bitty was wonderful.


Title: Pining for You
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 18,750
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, thief!eames, holiday!fic
Summary: Eames has a pine tree that Arthur really wants. And that is not a euphemism. Well, not *entirely.*
Aww, such a sweet and sexy and silly Christmas read. Arthur and Eames are just fabulous in this and I loved Arthur as a company's point-man and Eames as a thief in hot water. So perfect.

Title: Pumpkin Spice Latte
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 20,539
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: High School, AU: Coffee Shop, barista!arthur, underage
Summary: In which Eames is obsessed with pumpkin spice lattes, and Arthur completely misses the point.
Oh, and also there's an egg baby.
Really charming High School AU. I really adored both of their characterizations here. There is some child abuse in this one, but it's fairly minor and well handled.

Title: Lucky Series (2 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 44,916 total
Content/Notes: kid!fic
Summary: Arthur finds a baby.
Super sweet series with Arthur and Eames finding an abandoned baby after a job-gone-wrong and taking her under their wing. Just a really adorable read.

Title: The One Where They're Stars on HGTV Series (5 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, past Eames/OMC, background Mal/Cobb, Ariadne/OMC
Rating: R
Word Count: 297,126 total
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: Reality Show, AU: Fusion, HGTV Fusion, mostly established relationship, bottom!arthur
Summary: Have you ever seen "Love It or List It"? In which Arthur is the real estate agent and Eames is the designer.
Okay, so, this series is straight up brilliant. Now, you may not think that nearly 300k or mostly established relationship Arthur/Eames HGTV AU is really necessary, but you would be completely wrong. I love me some home improvement shows, but I don't usually get that invested in the hosts, so I was a little skeptical of this one, but it was wonderfully executed. Arthur and Eames are perfectly characterized here, and Arthur as a real estate agent and Eames as a designer is just amazing. The chemistry and interaction between these two are beyond fabulous, and the whole thing is just SUCH a joy to read. Seriously, I had the biggest smile on my face throughout, and I was laughing out loud almost every other chapter (which is saying a lot). I know it's long, but if you're an Arthur/Eames fan it's totally worth it.


Title: Keep the Car Running Series (5 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, Sherlock/John, John/Mary, implied Mycroft/Lestrade
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 226,879 total
Content/Notes: AU: Cross-Over, Sherlock cross-over, implied bottom!arthur
Summary: If Mycroft Holmes lived in a world where people could steal information from the subconsciouses of others, tell me he wouldn't be all over that when he had Moriarty in custody.
Super fascinating and well crafted verse that crosses over the Inception and Sherlock fandoms. The world blending is masterfully done, and it all feels very natural and believable. On top of that, we get a wonderfully interesting and creepy premise, and fabulous characterizations. Arthur and Eames are particularly spectacular here. The first fic focuses on Arthur/Eames with some John/Sherlock pre-slash action. The fourth fic focuses on Sherlock/John (with some established Arthur/Eames) and I really loved how the season three events were incorporated. I really recommend reading them in order, as there are definitely a lot of references back to the first fic. There's a super satisfying epilogue fic for Arthur/Eames, and I believe there is a Sherlock/John one coming as well, though the series reads beautifully as is.


Title: An Early Start
Author: favicon HiddenKitty
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin, Kíli/Tauriel
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 44,436
Notes: AU: Thorin Lives, first time, bottom!bilbo, outdoors!sex, implied switching
Summary: Everyone knows they were doing it all along, right?.
Really sexy and enjoyable read that takes place after the end of the first movie and carries through the movies and beyond (with a much happier ending!) Loved the connection between Bilbo and Thorin here and there were some seriously hot scenes! Gets a bit exposition-y in some parts, but overall a fun read.


Title: Feel a Little Warmer
Author: favicon blacktofade
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,077
Content/Warnings: AU: Harry Lives, established relationship, recreational drug use, shotgunning, bottom!eggsy
Summary: Eggsy has never been much good at coping around Christmas time. Harry helps take his mind off it.
Super hot fic with shotgunning and riding and a really sweet relationship between Eggsy and Harry.

Title: the things we steal (it was only a kiss)
Author: favicon DivineProjectZero
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,738
Content/Warnings: AU: Crossover, Harry Potter crossover, professor!harry, auror!eggsy, identity porn
Summary: Eggsy whips around to find Harry Hart standing right behind him, holding a martini glass and just as gorgeous as Eggsy last saw him, three years and two months ago.
Thankfully, Eggsy is too busy staring in shock to actually say anything in response, because Harry then says, "Excuse my poor manners. Harry Hart. And you are?" And then extends his hand, which is how Eggsy remembers that he's not supposed to be Eggsy Unwin right now; he's actually undercover.
Awesome Harry Potter AU with Harry as Eggsy's old DADA professor and Eggsy running into him while undercover. Loved the feelings here and the whole thing was super sweet.


Title: Run Away With Me
Author: [livejournal.com profile] noeon
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: R
Word Count: 1,570
Summary: When Ronan finds Adam in Cabeswater, he doesn't know whether to worry that it's real or a dream. Which would be worse?
Really beautiful, lyrical fic of Adam and Ronan coming together in a not-quite-a-dream.


Title: bad habits (i do em all for you)
Author: favicon nymphe
Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,851
Content/Warnings: sex toys, underage, first time, rimming
Summary: wherein: stiles is sexually frustrated, stiles gets a vibrator stuck in his ass, stiles calls derek to help him with it, there's some kink discovery, a few orgasms, and some feelings. yep, that's about it.
Because I will never get tired of the "I got a vibrator stuck up my ass and need to call my crush to help get it out" trope. Super fun and super hot.

Title: My Longing Drives Me Crazy For You
Author: favicon secondstar
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, mention of past Stiles/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,820
Warnings: alpha/beta/omega dynamics, omega!stiles, werewolf!stiles, heat cyvles, self-lubrication, bottom!stiles, rimming, felching, sex toys, secret snowflake 2015
Summary: It's been years since Stiles talked to Derek, but he didn't have anyone else to turn to.
Super cool fic that incorporates some of the a/b/o aspects into the canon world. Fun read and unbelievably hot!

Title: King of the Road
Author: [livejournal.com profile] stoney321 | favicon Stoney
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 30,446
Warnings: AU: Human, switching, bottom!stiles, mostly bottom!derek, rimming, first time, road trips, semi-public!sex, bathroom!sex
Summary: Derek sees the guy--all long lines, furtive glances, hungry--leaning against the diner out in the middle of nowhere. Yeah, Derek's hungry, too.
Wonderful human AU with drifter!Derek and hobo!Stiles. Great connection and banter between the two of them, and the whole thing is super hot. The ending was maybe a little rushed, but it was a fun and overall satisfying read.

Oh my goodness there aren't even words for how amazing this is. I have such a student/teacher kink and this is probably one of the most powerful fics I've read in any fandom with this trope. It was funny and sweet and so heart-wrenching in some parts I was tearing up. The characters are so well written and believable and the chemistry between Arthur and Eames just sizzles.

Summary: Have you ever seen "Love It or List It"? In which Arthur is the real estate agent and Eames is the designer.
Okay, so, this series is straight up brilliant. Now, you may not think that nearly 300k or mostly established relationship Arthur/Eames HGTV AU is really necessary, but you would be completely wrong. I love me some home improvement shows, but I don't usually get that invested in the hosts, so I was a little skeptical of this one, but it was wonderfully executed. Arthur and Eames are perfectly characterized here, and Arthur as a real estate agent and Eames as a designer is just amazing. The chemistry and interaction between these two are beyond fabulous, and the whole thing is just SUCH a joy to read. Seriously, I had the biggest smile on my face throughout, and I was laughing out loud almost every other chapter (which is saying a lot). I know it's long, but if you're an Arthur/Eames fan it's totally worth it.

Several months ago I started thinking about my favorite fanfics. Obviously my rec lists are basically just lists of my favorite fics, but even among those, I have my favorites. The ones I read again and again, the ones I read when I need comfort, or want to feel some gut-punch feels, or want to roll around in the meant-to-be love. I decided that it was necessary to come up with a list of my most favorite of fics across all of the fandoms I read in. This was poor decision on my part. Six months later and I've finally finished, and narrowing things down was a bit more harrowing than anticipated. I ended up with almost as many fics on the honorable mentions list as I did on the Actual list, but some things can't be helped. I figured getting this up for Rectober was an admirable goal, and I'm happy I managed to get this done.

The more I've read in a fandom, the more difficult it was to narrow down, so I had an especially hard time with Harry Potter and Teen Wolf in particular. I tried to narrow it down by only letting myself chose one from a category (one creature!fic, one post-hogwarts era, etc). It was hard. Also, keep in mind that these are 100% personal opinion and totally subjective. I like what I like.

So, here they are, Grace's 25 most-favorite fics! AKA What I would bring to read on a desert island. :D

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.

Summary: Some new formula causes Arthur to turn into a sixteen-year-old. He's overwhelmed with hormones and completely horny all the time. Eames feels like a dirty old man because OMG IT IS KIND OF HOT, but tries to keep business as usual. And then Yusuf suggests Arthur will have to lose his virginity in order to turn back into an adult. Well, Eames isn't comfortable with Arthur having sex "for the first time" WITH RANDOM DUDES, so he graciously volunteers.
Crazy hot and I love how the age difference kink (one of my favs) was worked into the canon verse!

Summary: Many people, Eames would find out later, assumed Eames had wanted Arthur from the moment they'd met. It was true Arthur was devestatingly attractive, but in all honesty, the first thing Eames had thought when he'd met Arthur was, Why did Cobb bring his son? (Or: It's all about trust.)

Summary: After all this time, Arthur has too much pride to simply ask Eames to have sex with him. A story in which the job isn't always glamourous, Cobb thinks Arthur makes poor life decisions, and Eames steals everything (including, maybe, Arthur's heart).
Definitely not at all of dub-cony as the summary/prompt makes it sound. Super hot with an adorably awkward Arthur.

Summary: People assume that Eames likes to be in perfect control of everything: how he presents himself to the world, how others see him, how an extraction goes down. That's true, mostly. Sometimes. The reality is more complicated. A story in which Eames is a sub who doesn't like to be penetrated, and Arthur is a dom that really, really does.
Really sexy fic with a fabulous dynamic between Arthur and Eames. I loved the twist on the D/s role here.

Summary: It’s not that he trusts Eames completely or anything that ridiculous. It’s just that they’ve worked together before, know each other more than peripherally, and it’s sometimes good to have a familiar face around while Cobb goes even more off the rails and off the grid.
Wonderful pre-canon fic with a slow simmering build and a sweet, hopeful ending.

Summary: In part one, Eames forges Satan, and carries hints of this over topside. Arthur gets caught up in it, leading to a d/s scene that both unexpectedly enjoy, though feel guilty about afterwards. In the second part, Arthur comes back for more.
Really interesting concept of Eames' forges staying with him for a bit after a job, and it leads to some super hot D/s and some great relationship development between Arthur and Eames.

Summary: It doesn't surprise Arthur when he hears, eventually, that they've developed a reputation for fighting like cats and dogs—since, in a sense, they are those things. AKA, the verse where catboys and werewolves collide.
I honestly haven't read very many catboy fics in any fandom that I've really loved, but this one was great, especially with the addition of werewolf!eames and all the sexy differences and animosity turned love.

God I really just love this verse and I wish I had so much more of it! I really loved the interpretation of how Arthur and Eames could have originally met, and how their relationship progressed.

Content/Notes: AU: Crossover, Sherlock crossover, implied bottom!arthur
Summary: If Mycroft Holmes lived in a world where people could steal information from the subconsciouses of others, tell me he wouldn't be all over that when he had Moriarty in custody.
Super fascinating and well crafted verse that crosses over the Inception and Sherlock fandoms. The world blending is masterfully done, and it all feels very natural and believable. On top of that, we get a wonderfully interesting and creepy premise, and fabulous characterizations. Arthur and Eames are particularly spectacular here. The first fic focuses on Arthur/Eames with some John/Sherlock pre-slash action. The fourth fic focuses on Sherlock/John (with some established Arthur/Eames) and I really loved how the season three events were incorporated. I really recommend reading them in order, as there are definitely a lot of references back to the first fic. There's a super satisfying epilogue fic for Arthur/Eames, and I believe there is a Sherlock/John one coming as well, though the series reads beautifully as is.
