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 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.

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

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,953
Warnings: established relationship, switching, bottom!spock, bottom!kirk, kid!fic

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
Author: favicon leupagus
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto
Rating: NC-17

Author: favicon sidnihoudini
Pairing(s): Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto

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.

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 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

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

Rating: NC-17

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

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.

As Spock's normally orderly life starts to spin out of control, will his obsession with Jim prove his salvation or his undoing?
Such an awesome, sexy Academy AU! Loved the teacher/student aspect and the connection between Jim and Spock was seriously hot. Fabulous read and a fantastic ending.

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

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

Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 8,173

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 19,763
Content/Warnings: shower!sex, rimming, implied switching
Summary: “So we should ask Bits and Lardo to come with us to New York,” Shitty said.
Jack turned to look at him, frowning. “Seriously?”
“Yeah, man. I mean, I know this was supposed to be just you and me, but… We both know those two are gonna be part of our lives after graduation. It’d just be like. Getting a head start on it.”
Oh this is so perfect! Loved all of them going on a trip to New York and finally making their moves. The characterizations were perfect here, and the connection between Bitty and Jack was fantastic. Super fucking hot, and just a really satisfying and believable fic.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 21,532

Word Count: 35,786
Content/Warnings: outsider POV, het
Summary: Shitty Knight takes a post-graduation road trip. Four friends, six thousand miles, two tents, several embarrassing photos, a giant rabbit, three cops, and a bear.
Really interesting and well written fic. I loved Shitty's POV and the connection between him and Lardo and Jack and Bitty and all of them together was wonderful. I thought Lardo's character was wonderfully characterized, and this fic has one of the best polyamorous-type relationships I've read. Hard to describe, but I really enjoyed.


Title: Lose It

Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,409
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!adam
Summary: “I can’t believe y’said that,” Adam whispered, eyes still closed. There was a small smile on his lips. Ronan pushed himself up to kiss it.

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.

Title: Do Not Wake

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

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


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

Title: tricks or treats (Part 6 of the Domestic Series )

Such a sweet update to the series! I liked getting to see more of Gil, and the kids being a little older was super cute. Just some happy fluff to make you smile. :)

Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon
Rating: NC-17

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

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

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

I've been listening to [livejournal.com profile] mab's podfic of Turn by [livejournal.com profile] saras_girl, and it's so hard to pace myself! I only have chapter 12 left before I'm all caught up (though it's so long, it's more like 2 chapters) and it's going to be a struggle not to just give in a go read the fic for the last two chapters! The second half is my favorite part and it's been such a joy to hear the characters and conversations come to life in the podfic. I definitely recommend giving it a listen. It's perfect for commutes and cooking and blocking out boring work chatter and as background for playing The Sims 4....It's been giving me a lot of nostalgic H/D feels, since Turn was one of the earlier fics I read on discovering fandom, and I remember staying it bed until literally 4am reading it on my laptop, just obsessed.

So I've been going through my "Marked For Later" list on AO3, trying to find H/D fics I've been meaning to read. It turns out that The Price of Valour is the fic that has been on my list for the longest amount of time. And, well, it's 400K words long, so that's not exactly surprising. It's a bit daunting, really. But I think I'm going to start it today. The plan is to read one chapter a day to pace myself. Unless I get obsessed. Which is a definite possibility. In that case, I probably won't be sleeping for the next few days!

I actually should probably be reading, Leave No Soul Behind, this wonderful Kirk/Spock fic I was startedon the plane ride back from DC a few weeks ago. It's over 250K words (which is about twice as long as the longest fics I normally read), and I was halfway through it by the time my plane landed. The problem is, I just can't seem to motivate myself to finish it. I think the biggest problem is that where I ended, things were really good. They had just had sex for the first time and the morning after was sweet and there weren't any misunderstandings and it was all lovely. But there is still 125K left to go. No way are things staying happy for the rest of the fic. I'm too nervous to continue! Maybe I'll do the chapter-a-day thing with this one too...

I should also be reading The Silkworm, since I was finally able to check out the ebook from my library after being on the wait-list for ages. I also have the audiobook, so maybe I will listen to that to prevent me from pining for the rest of the Turn podfic. On a mildly related note, I put myself down on the wait-list for The Goldfinch, since I've heard such good things about it (mostly from [livejournal.com profile] kedavranox) and I am number 653 on the list. :/ There are 165 ebooks available, but I still think that one is going to be awhile...

Are you guys reading anything good?

CLICK HERE to get to the Kirk/Spock recs with more than 15,000 words.

GUYS. Have you gotten on board the Kirk/Spock train yet? Because it's AWESOME. Have you even seen Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto? Look at this! I'm not even sure if it's photoshopped but who cares? Or how about this one? because OMG Quinto in leather on a motorcycle...But I digress.

This is all from the Abram's 'verse, because I'm not familiar enough with TOS canon to really get into the fic. But it's just so much fun because pretty much ALL THE TROPE work so well for this pairing. Fuck-or-die and heat cycles are literally canon for Vulcans. How awesome is that??

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