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.

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 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.
Really sweet fic with Kirk and Spock thinking through the possibility of having a baby in the first fic, and then going for it in the second! Just lovely.


Title: Brimming
Author: favicon semperama
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,873
Content/Warnings: RPF, rimming, platonic sex, drunk!sex
Summary: “Alright, we can settle this right now.” Chris’s eyes widen as Zach stalks over to the couch. “I cannot, as your friend, let you go one more day without this experience.”
First off, the title is freaking awesome. And second off, so is this fic. Just some good (dirty) fun. :D

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.

The final book in my most recent book obsession, The Raven Cycle, came out at the end of April. It was everything I could have hoped for. So, naturally, I spent May reading all of the new fic that had been spawned from this most wondrous of creations. Here are my favorites!

Title: The World is Wide (but you are its centre)
Author: favicon BeautifulSoup
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: R
Word Count: 2,415
Content/Warnings: established relationship, mild TRK spoilers
Summary: A snapshot during the days leading up to Adam's departure.
Lovey, short little ficlet showing a glimpse into Ronan and Adam's relationship before Adam leaves for college. The writing is beautiful and the emotion is perfect.

Title: dreamers electric
Author: favicon enjolraes
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: PG-13 (Rated M on AO3, but I think Teen is more accurate)
Word Count: 2,460
Content/Warnings: mild TRK spoilers
Summary: Ronan was laying on his stomach, feeling Adam's breath dancing on the back of his neck, his body a livewire as Adam traced the ink of his tattoo, those beautiful fucking fingers skating down his spine. He almost couldn't stand it, his heart was more alive than it had been in years.
Lovely post-The Raven King fic! The writing is beautiful and I really liked the thrumming, electric chemistry between Ronan and Adam.

Title: hold my breath until the morning
Author: favicon seeingrightly
Pairing: Adam/Ronan

Content/Warnings: established relationship, TRK spoilers
Summary: Blue and Gansey sit close in the back seat, the Orphan Girl curled up so as not to disturb them, Chainsaw bundled in her arms, somewhat agitated. It's very quiet. Ronan's fingers twitch, but it doesn't feel right to turn on the music, especially his kind of music.
Adam puts his hand on top of Ronan's. There is a very, very brief moment where Ronan thinks he’s going to lose control of the car, and then he breathes, and he turns over his hand.
Super lovely post-TRK fic with Ronan and Adam sort of beginning to settle into each other. The writing is beautiful and I just adored all of Adam and Ronan's interactions.

Word Count: 10,646
Content/Warnings: established relationship, trk spoilers
Summary: Revised relationships come from the settling dust of unmaking, and Ronan and Adam try to find a balance between grief and joy, love and sex, friendship and occasional hand kissing. They navigate first times and promises and a feeling like magic - even when they're forest-less and wide awake.
Oh my goodness, this was lovely. Really wonderful characterization of Ronan and Adam, and the writing was beautiful. Super great watching them settle into their relationship after the events of TRK.

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.

Title: lovin' you for quite some time
Author: favicon wishingonalightningbolt
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,182
Content/Warnings: established relationship, first time, bottom!bitty
Summary: The sexual firsts of Jack and Bitty's relationship.
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
Content/Warnings: time travel, kind of established relationship, bottom!ronan, outdoor!sex
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!

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.

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.

Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,348
Content/Notes AU: Alternate First Meeting, bottom!steve, car!sex, identity!porn
Summary: A SHIELD agent named Roger Stevens told Tony that his nickname was "Cap". Tony didn't connect the dots until it was much, much too late.

He's going to need more butter.
Such a sweet fic that takes place the summer after Jack graduates. Beautiful characterizations and the build was fabulous.


Title: Unplanned
Author: favicon stubbornjerk
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 2,237
Content/Warnings: established relationship, praise!kink, bottom!ronan
Summary: The thing about being Ronan Lynch is that no one expects you to do something good. The thing about dating Ronan Lynch is that Adam doesn't expect him to be romantic. Or: the two times that Ronan tried his experiment and the one time it actually worked.
This was lovely. Gorgeous and super hot.


Title: i'm the one for your fire (part 8 in the Of Magic and Monsters Series)
Author: favicon venomedveins
Pairing: Agron/Nasir, background pairings

As Spock's normally orderly life starts to spin out of control, will his obsession with Jim prove his salvation or his undoing?

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. :)

“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.

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
Author: favicon stubbornjerk
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,409

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
Word Count: 2,519
Content/Warnings: established relationship, intergluteal sex, somnophilia, dirty talk, bottom!nasir, post-sex fingering *for me
Summary: It’s late at night and Agron is fucking tired. Nasir is hard to resist, though, even when he’s fast asleep.
Super fabulous somnophilia fic that manages to be dead sexy, and funny, and romantic, and perfectly in character all at once!

Title: The Solace of Day Break

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

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.

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.

So a friend of mine just finished reading the first three books in the Raven Cycle, and we have been flailing about it for the past few days. Which put me in a very Pynch mood, so, obviously, I had to go and find some more fanfic. :D

Pynch Recs :D )

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

Title: Toasted Buns

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!

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

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.)

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

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.

Summary: Blue and Gansey sit close in the back seat, the Orphan Girl curled up so as not to disturb them, Chainsaw bundled in her arms, somewhat agitated. It's very quiet. Ronan's fingers twitch, but it doesn't feel right to turn on the music, especially his kind of music.
Adam puts his hand on top of Ronan's. There is a very, very brief moment where Ronan thinks he’s going to lose control of the car, and then he breathes, and he turns over his hand.

Not the answer Adam is expecting.

Summary: He blinked and, behind the boat shoes and tan ankles, Adam's face grew into sharp focus.
He was looking straight at Ronan.
His eyes were round, shocked into complete stillness. His cheeks were pink. One hand curled around grass, and Ronan watched, with a slow dawning of awareness, the way Adam's knuckles grew white as he tightened his hold on the ground.
Cabeswater, Ronan realized. Cabeswater had taken his dream and shared it with the only other person who could ever be close enough to Cabeswater to see it.
Such a lovely, beautifully written fic. I loved Ronan so much in this, his confusion and pining, and then when he and Adam come together...smoking hot!

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!
