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.

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

I haven't talked about it too much here, but I signed up this year for the Merlin [livejournal.com profile] aftercamlann big bang. I've had this Arthur/Merlin Modern AU fic idea in my head since last year, but it's not my primary fandom and I wasn't sure I'd ever actually finish it. But that's one of the reasons I love fests, because they give you deadlines and motivation! :D

This is the longest non-HP fic I've written, and I had a lot of fun playing with two very different characters. I've also been wanting to write a BDSM fic that goes beyond just some light D/s, and overall I'm really pleased with out it came out. Especially because I just *barely* squeaked in over the word count minimum... :D

I also got the most AMAZING artist, [livejournal.com profile] karovie! This was the first time anybody's ever created art based on something I've written, and it was a beyond cool experience. I totally lucked out, and it was great working with her. :D

Title: Just to Lose Control
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gracerene
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] karovie
Pairings/characters: Arthur/Merlin, non-explicit mentions of Merlin/Morgana, past Merlin/Will, background Gwen/Lance
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~25,000
Warnings: Modern AU, Non Magical AU, BDSM, D/s, Dom!arthur, sub!merlin, spanking, rimming, anal fingering, anal sex, blindfolds, light bondage, blow jobs, face-fucking, frottage, flogging, butt plugs, bottom!merlin, light praise!kink, past character death
Summary: Merlin may need to submit every once in awhile, but that doesn't mean he wants a relationship, and he certainly doesn't want to fall in love. Of course, he wasn't counting on Arthur.
Author's notes: I have been wanting to write a Merlin fic for a long time, and I'm so happy [livejournal.com profile] aftercamlann gave me the push I needed to follow through! Thanks to my beta [livejournal.com profile] lauren3210 for looking this fic over for me and providing me with wonderful feedback! And a million thanks to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] karovie for claiming my fic and creating some seriously amazing art to go with it. <3

Read on AO3

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.

Lots of random recs! Some of these have been on my TBR list for ages, some are from winter fests, some are super random fics inspired by recent rewatching of television series'...

Title: Party girls don't get hurt
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs | favicon sirona
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.


Title: my heart's against your chest, your lips pressed to my neck
Author: favicon theladyingrey42
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,772
Content/Warnings: Established relationship, first time, bottom!eric
Summary: He can't believe they're finally doing this.
Super hot and sweet fic of Bitty's first time. Lovely relationship between the two of them here.

Title: Double Jeopardy
Author: favicon shortlimbs
Pairing(s): Eric/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: The Left Hand of Godlessness
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tourdefierce | favicon tourdefierce
Pairing(s): Eric/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.


Title: Good Mornin’
Author: [livejournal.com profile] uberaeryn
Pairing(s): Jack/Sawyer
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~1,200
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!jack, implied switching, rough sex, outdoor!sex

JFC this is basically the hottest thing ever.

Really interesting concept and hot as hell.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,579
Content/Warnings: AU: Magical, AU: Modern, bottom!merlin, drunk!sex, rimming, light bondage, accidental bonding!fic, merlin holidays 2015
Summary: Merlin's mum always told him to stay away from Druid festivals. Unfortunately, Merlin never has been any good at listening.
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
Author: favicon Magnolia822
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, past Arthur/Gwen
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,565
Content/Warnings: AU: Reincarnation, AU: Modern, bottom!merlin, memory loss, merlin holidays 2015
Summary: After years of waiting for Arthur, Merlin can’t take it anymore and uses a memory-wiping spell on himself. 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.


Title: Scientific Inquiry Series (2 Fics)
Author: favicon walkandtalk
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: R overall
Word Count: ~56,000
Content/Warnings: AU: Academy, professor/student relationship, kid!fic
Summary: A young Vulcan decides to find a mate for his guardian, Spock. After careful calculations, Cadet Kirk is obviously the superior choice.
Super sweet fic with Spock's cousin, Selik, trying to set Spock and Kirk up, and then detailing their lives together. Just the sweetest thing. (There is also a WIP 3rd fic, but that is primarily Amanda/Serek, and I have not read it.)

Title: a sequence that you never learned

Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock, past Spock/Uhura
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 65,105
Content/Warnings: fake/pretend relationship, marriage!fic, kid!fic, bottom!spock, implied switching
Summary: When Jim gets it in his head to adopt an eight year old Vulcan, Spock presents a logical solution to the issue of Jim's humanity: marriage to a Vulcan citizen.
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.

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

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!

As usual, I did a little bit of reading in several different fandoms this past month. I actually didn't do a ton of fanfic reading overall, as I was getting work done on some m/m romances. :D

Title: Exact Measurements Required
Author: favicon trilliath
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 13,350
Summary: That time S.H.I.E.L.D. quartermasters accidentally put Steve's balls in a vise and it goes exactly as well as you'd expect it to. Tony promptly offers to help. Because he's helpful like that. Obviously.
Oh this is so great! Really lovely team dynamics, and the relationship and development between Steve and Tony is fabulous. I love the idea of Tony working on Steve's costume, and the constant adjustment were too funny! :)


Title: Hard-Knock
Author: [livejournal.com profile] yeaka | favicon yeaka
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,622
Notes: bottom!bilbo, public!sex, alpha/beta/omega dynamics
Summary: Bilbo rides the river in Thorin’s barrel, then rides other things.
Quick sexy little ficlet with a dash of omega!verse thrown in!


Title: Hold for the Applause
Author: favicon DivineProjectZero
Pairing: Colin/Taron, background Colin/Livia, mentions of Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 18,393
Content/Warnings: RPF, open relationships, first time, bottom!taron, rimming, fantasy, dirty talk
Summary: The thing is, once Taron sees it, he can’t stop seeing it. (or: the one where Hartwin is to blame for the Firtherton.)
Super awesome, sexy fic that sort of blurs the lines between Hartwin and Firtherton. Super clever, and just a really fabulous read!


Title: Thrill
Author: favicon vorador
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,293
Content/Warnings: dirty talk, semi public!sex
Summary: Eggsy chokes on a moan and shudders against him. "Harry…"
"Shh, darling," Harry whispers and kisses the spot he'd just bitten, brushes his lips against the shell of Eggsy's ear. "I need you to be very quiet now. Can you do that for me?"
Super hot little fic with Harry getting Eggsy off in the bushes during a party.

Title: Exsatio (part 2 of the Recuperandae Series)
Author: favicon DistractionReaction
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 54,317
Content/Warnings: AU: Harry Lives, rimming, mild bondage, bottom!eggsy, rough sex
Summary: Five times Harry tries to wine and dine Eggsy, and one time that things actually work out as planned.
Seriously amazing sequel to one of my favorite Kingsman fics. The characterizations are great, and I just adore their connection here. Loved all the coitus interruptus and the sexy build up of tension. When they finally manage to have sex, it's just about the hottest thing ever.


Title: The Coming of Spring
Author: favicon ingberry
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,746
Content/Warnings: bottom!merlin, outdoor!sex, glomp fest 2013
Summary: Kings, even new ones, were not supposed to long for their menservants. They shouldn't let their eyes linger on their wrists, the plump of their lips, or the shape of their thighs. Arthur knew this, but he still wanted. There was nothing about Merlin he didn't want.
Such a lovely gorgeous fic with pining!Arthur and a seriously beautiful relationship between Arthur and Merlin.


Title: my kingdom for your graces (part 6 of the Of Magic and Monsters Series)
Author: favicon venomedveins
Pairing: Agron/Nasir, background Crixus/Naevia, Mira/Spartacus, implied Auctus/Duro, Pietros/Barca, past Agron/Duro, mention of past Agron/OCs and Nasir/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,551
Content/Warnings: AU: Fairy Tale & Fantasy, creature!fic, magic!nasir, werewolf!agron, arranged marriage, rough sex, bottom!nasir, MPREG, mention of past sibling incest
Summary: Plans begin to be revealed as Gerulf moves towards his goal. Both Agron and Nasir suffer in their own way.
Fabulous update to this captivating series! Agron and Nasir are finally reunited (in the sexiest of ways) and all of the plots surrounding them continue to thicken! Highly recommend this series, though you definitely should start from the beginning!


Title: All Stirred Up
Author: [livejournal.com profile] marguerite_26 & favicon jsea
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Kira/Scott, Lydia/Jordan, implied Boyd/Erica
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 49,430
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, laura lives, cop!derek, barista!stiles, bottom!stiles, magic!stiles, rough sex
Summary: Derek's first duty as a new deputy is the early morning coffee run to The Leaky Carafe, and it's not long before he discovers that the quirky barista has a knack for making the perfect drink. Every time. Even before you order. But is it intuition, luck or magic that has all Stiles' customers leaving happy?
Oh this was just such a fun AU. I really love how the authors interpreted the tropes and themes and canon elements here, but gave them a fresh twist. Fabulous connection between Stiles and Derek and just generally a super enjoyable read.

I was still in quite the Merlin mood at the beginning of the month, so here are some of my favorite recent reads. I'm FOR REALZ going to be starting the final Merlin season when I get back from India, so I'm sure I'll be binge reading more Merlin fic soon! :D

I have been in a major Merthur mood this past month. Probably because I finally finished season four and have started season 5. I've been going really slow through the seasons, because I don't want it to end!

Just a few recs here. I did spend a lot of time fandom hopping this month, but I read enough fics in most of the other ones for them to merit their own post.

Can I just talk about something that bugs me real quick? For me, fics that follow along with canon event in any fandom, are Canon AUs. Because it isn't actually canon, it's canon in an alternate universe of what could happen. Alternatively, fics that take place in the canon world, but don't follow canon events (like in Merlin fics where Merlin never came to Camelot, or grew up with the Druids, etc.) wouldn't be Canon AUs, they'd be Camelot AUs, alternate universes that take place in the Camelot world, but do not follow canon events. But nobody seems to agree with my way of seeing things, and most places refer to the fics in this list as "Canon AUs". C'est la vie.

OBSESSED WITH MERLIN. When I first get into a fandom, I much prefer reading Canon AUs, so this is the longest of the rec lists. I still haven't seen season 4/5, so I've got several fics bookmarked that I know take place after those seasons, so definitely more recs to come!
