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.

Once again, I sort of bounced all over the place this month in terms of my fandom reading. :D

Title: Toasted Buns
Author: [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge and favicon scifigrl47
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 47,044
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!steve, bottom!tony, hotel!sex, first time
Summary: After seeing Tony naked and tanned -- all over -- in a decontamination shower, Steve realizes he may be in trouble. Tony, meanwhile, is definitely in trouble over those tabloid pictures of him sunbathing nude. The solution is clearly a tropical island getaway.
Oh such a fun and sexy fic! I loved Steve and Tony's relationship in this, and the sex was smoking hot!


Title: Snowmelt (A deleted scene from Chapter 38 of Sansûkh)
Author: favicon determamfidd
Pairing: Gimli/Legolas
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,863
Content/Warnings: established relationship
Summary: For the first time since Edoras, Gimli and Legolas are alone. The battle of the Pelennor Fields has been won. They have an entire suite to themselves in the guest wing of the citadel of Minas Tirith.
And there is a bath.
Such a wonderfully hot and sweet Sansûkh outtake with Gimli and Legolas getting it on for the first time. [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.]


Title: Post-Game Celebration
Author: favicon razielim
Pairing(s): Jason/Percy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,236
Content/Warnings: AU: High School, underage, first time, bottom!percy, semi-public!sex
Summary: Jason finds Percy after the game and offers him some help, but he wants some help in return.
Super hot High School AU with Footballer Jason fucking cheerleader Percy in the locker room after the game! :D


Title: The Only Time I Miss You Is Every Single Day
Author: favicon Zee
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,469
Content/Warnings: breakup!fic, future!fic, bottom!ronan, outdoor!sex
Summary: After Adam and Ronan have gotten together and then broken up, Ronan visits Adam at college.
Lovely, bittersweet fic with Adam and Ronan having broken up in the past, and trying to make things work again. Great ending.


Title: Ice
Author: favicon Molly
Pairing(s): Clark/Lex
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 8,346
Content/Notes: underage, first time, forced proximity, barn!sex
Summary: In which Lex almost dies, Clark almost saves him, and there is almost (but not quite) too much schmoop.
Super sweet and sexy fic with and adorable Clark and a fabulously characterized Lex.


Title: it's shaking the sky and i'm following lightening (part 5 of the Of Magic and Monsters Series)
Author: favicon venomedveins
Pairing: Agron/Nasir, background Pietros/OMC, Auctus/Duro, Crixus/Naevia, Mira/Spartacus, implied Pietros/Barca, past Agron/Duro, mention of past Agron/OCs and Nasir/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,271
Content/Warnings: AU: Fairy Tale & Fantasy, creature!fic, magic!nasir, werewolf!agron, arranged marriage, rough sex, bottom!nasir, MPREG, dream!sex, mention of past sibling incest
Summary: Agron has left for war, but Nasir is now fighting a war at home too. Who is really the hero and who is really the villain?
Awesome update to a fabulous series! Things are starting to get more intense here, and the tension continues to mount. I adore this world the author is creating, and both Agron and Nasir are really wonderfully characterized. (Also, a note about the past Agron/Duro, because that's not generally my thing, but it's all non-explicit and in the past. It does play a part in the story, but this is very much a Nasir/Agron fic.)


Title: Is Forever Enough
Author: favicon GotTheSilver
Pairings: Derek/Stiles, background Scott/Allison, Cora/Lydia
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 10,836
Content/Notes: AU: Werewolves Exist, arranged marriage
Summary: Arranged Marriage AU.
Really wonderful Arranged Marriage AU, with some great chemistry between Stiles and Derek. Just lovely.


Title: In the Long Run
Author: faviconblacktofade
Pairing(s): Scott/Stiles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 12,501
Content/Warnings: AU: No Werewolves, wing!fic, bottom!stiles
Summary: Scott first meets his guardian angel, Stiles, when he's six and playing in a sandbox at the park.
Really wonderful AU that still manages to perfectly capture that awesome essence of Stiles and Scott's friendship. And then seeing that friendship evolve into something deeper was just lovely.

I know most of ya'll are my HP frens and aren't into The Hobbit/LotR fanfic, BUT, I need to keep spreading the love for this fanfic because it is still one of the most amazing things I have ever read.

I've posted about Sansûkh before, the 375k+ teen-rated WIP Thilbo/Gigolas fanfic that I adore to pieces. It's seriously awesome, and the author is lovely over on tumblr, and she updates pretty much at least once a month with a fairly lengthy chapter, so the WIPness doesn't even bother me. [you can read my earlier post, where I flail in greater detail, here]

This post, though, is just to pimp the fact that there is a massive podfic collaboration effort going on right now, and it's awesome. The first chapter is now up, and the quality is pretty freaking great. So for those of you who might be more interested in listening, than in reading, that is now an option! I think they're also still accepting auditions for some of the later roles, if any of you podficcers on my list might want to get involved. :D

So I am going to do something I never do, which is to rec a 300k, Teen Rated, WIP. I know. But it is the most beautifully written thing I've read in a long, long while.

It's in the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings fandoms and it blends those two storylines so perfectly I swear to god it reads like actual canon. It's Bilbo/Thorin and Gimli/Legolas pairings, but like I said, it's a PG-13 rating, and it's not at all explicit, so if you are at all interested in Middle Earth, I would recommend reading it even if you aren't a fan of the pairings (TBH I've never been sold on Legolas/Gimli, but I sort of am now).

It was written for this prompt at the hobbit meme: So why was Gimli the dwarf chosen to attend the Council of Elrond? Well, I'd like to think it was because someone pushed him to do so and things went from there. But who? Why, the dead members of Thorin Oakenshield's Company, of course!
Their ghosts/spirits/visions/phantoms have been attached to Gimli since they got word that Frodo, the cute little nephew/cousin of their own Bilbo, was going to end up on the quest to destroy the Ring. So as a favor to their still living Hobbit burglar, they vow to protect Frodo anyway they can, which ends up being through Gimli. Unfortunately though no fault of Gimli's own, he's not with the young hobbit as much as his Elders would like, which in turn makes them very irritable and annoying for as long as hobbit and dwarf are separated. So yeah. Overprotective!Oakenshield Company haunting Gimli to ensure Frodo's safety.


That's the general gist, but it's so much more than that. The characterizations are fucking fantastic and the dwarves are especially wonderful. The fic starts right after the BoFA and right now is up to when Gimli, Legolas, and Aragorn start down the Path of the Dead. I honestly cannot do this fic justice trying to explain how much I adore it. We get to see both the quest/fellowship of the ring and what was happening in Erebor during LoTR, we get to meet so many dwarves(I'm especially happy about all the kick-ass female dwarves!), we get to see Legolas and Gimli and their antagonism and how it evolves into friendship and then more and it's so achingly beautiful and believable. We see Thorin struggling with his guilt over the gold-sickness, his heart-ache at realizing Bilbo was his One far too late, his resolve to protect Gimli and Frodo at all costs. There is a large cast here and every single man, dwarf, hobbit, and elf jumps right off the screen. The research that went into this is just staggering. It's honest to god perfection.

I know most of you on here are not really in the LOTR/Hobbit fandoms, and reading WIPs is risky business anyways, but I just NEED somebody else to read this, because it has consumed my life these past three days. To the point where I am just talking about it with my RL friends trying to tempt them into reading it.

Title: Sansûkh
Author: favicon determamfidd
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin, Gimli/Legolas, Aragorn/Arwen, multiple other pairings
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~303,000
Content/Warnings: major character death (canon)
Summary: The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors. The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.
(Follows the story of the War of the Ring).
(Bagginshield, Gimli/Legolas) In which recovery takes time, the dead members of the Company take to watching Gimli as though he’s a soap opera, the living struggle with being left behind, Legolas is confused, Khuzdul is abused, and Thorin is four feet and ten inches of guilt and anger.

After finishing The Fellowship of the Ring audiobook I was in the mood for the LotR fanfic! This is pretty short for now, since I only read enough to satisfy my craving, but I am sure I will be updating with more fics and pairings in the future! :)

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

♥ = favorite
