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.

IDK why, but I was in a major Sterek mood this past month, and I totally dove into a ton of fic. I used to be mega-obsessed with this pairing, and it was kind of nice revisiting them. :D

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.

Not too many recs this month, as most of my free time was spent writing, but still managed to find a few gems. :D

Title: quite new a thing
Author: favicon annundriel
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,676
Content/Warnings: established relationship, panty!kink
Summary: Bitty buys them on a whim.
OMFG this is hot as hell and beautifully written. Love the idea of Bitty wearing sexy panties for Jack, and Jack's reaction as perfection.


Title: Ivy and Diamonds (out-take directly following Chapter 41 of Sansûkh)
Author: favicon determamfidd
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,105
Content/Warnings: praise!kink, dirty talk, piercing!kink, implied switching
Summary: There's not a lot to do while waiting for someone to wake. After the last few weeks of fear and worry, the stillness is odd and unnerving.
Well, perhaps there's one or two things that could pass the time...
Lovely and super sexy outtake with Bilbo and Thorin finding ways to overcome the fact that they can't touch one another. Beautiful. [FYI: This is a “Deleted Scene” from Sansûkh, which is an amazing Thilbo & Gigolas WIP that I highly recommend. I think you’d probably be okay to read this fic without having read Sansûkh, but it’ll make a bit more sense if you read the main fic first. It's long but SO, SO WORTH IT.]


Title: I Seem to Be a Verb
Author: [livejournal.com profile] bookshop
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, Arthur/OMCs, background Mal/Cobb, past Arthur/Yusef & Eames/Fisher
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 93,873
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: Bookstore, AU: Fusion, Notting Hill Fusion, actor!eames, rimming, switching, bottom!eames, mostly bottom!arthur, light D/s
Summary: Notting Hill AU, written for the i_k prompt, "I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." Arthur owns a quirky hipster science bookstore. Eames is a world-famous mega-celebrity. Clearly this calls for a meet-cute.
Oh, this fic is just so wonderful! Beautifully written with fabulous characterizations and a connection between Arthur and Eames that just sizzles. There's no small amount of angst, but it makes the ending that much more satisfying when you get there. Plus the sex was seriously, seriously hot.


Title: A Thrill of Hope
Author: favicon bigboobedcanuck
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,059
Content/Notes: rimming, holiday!fic
Summary: Stiles crashes through the forest with Derek in his sights, stopping every so often to launch another snowball and duck one of Derek’s. Obviously Derek could outrun him in a heartbeat if he wanted to, but for some bizarre reason he apparently wants to hang out with Stiles and have an epic snowball fight. Maybe it’s a Christmas miracle. Or maybe Derek is just as bored and lonely as Stiles is.
Oh, this was just lovely and sexy and beyond sweet. Really wonderful little Christmas fic..

Title: (don't) blame it on the alcohol
Author: favicon wishingonalightningbolt
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,041
Warnings: barebacking, bottom!stiles, implied switching
Summary: Stiles brews wolfsbane beer in the hope of getting drunk with Derek - for ya know, male bonding purposes. With Scott still at Davis and everyone else so busy all the time, Stiles and Derek are the bestest of bros now, and it's only right that they be allowed to get sloshed together.
Unsurprisingly, Stiles catches the feels.
This was lovely! Super adorable watching Stiles and Derek bond and become closer, and Stiles begin to realize that he's totally in love with Derek. Luckily, Derek definitely returns those feelings. Sweet and hot!

I 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.

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

Title: shine for you
Author: favicon buchanan
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,558
Content/Warnings: established relationship, valentines please! fest 2016
Summary: There are whispers. There have always been whispers. Jack doesn’t hear them, doesn’t care to listen. He goes home to his apartment and climbs into his bed and kisses at Bittle’s shoulder before tucking his knees up behind Bittle’s and exhaling. The sound of Bittle’s soft snoring is better than any noise Deadspin could make.
Really lovely established relationship fic that takes place a few years down the line with Jack thinking about coming out and his future with Bitty.

Title: walk with you through everything
Author: favicon idrilka
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: R
Word Count: 6,619
Content/Warnings: established relationship, future!fic, valentines please! fest 2016
Summary: After Jack retires from the NHL, he takes his time to heal, in more ways than one. Bitty is there for him every step of the way.
Really lovely fic that takes place 10 years down the road with Jack getting a career-ending injury. Watching Jack deal with losing hockey was really wonderful, and his relationship with Bitty was too freaking sweet.

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


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

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

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

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


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


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


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

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


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


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

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

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

One of the things I've wanted to be better about this year is cleaning out some of my "to-read" fics. I have a ton of AO3 notifications in my inbox from authors I subscribe to, and so many of those fics immediately go to my TBR pile and never see the light of day again. My goal is to read at least two longer fics per week (over 25k) and since I read several great Teen Wolf things this month, I thought they merited their own post. :) More multi-fandom recs to come tomorrow.

Title: On and On and On (part 3 of If We're Talking Body Series)
Author: favicon alisvolatpropiis
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,492
Warnings: AU: Human, cop!stiles, artist!derek, tattoos, bottom!derek, implied switching, established relationship
Summary: Heart pounding with anticipation and excitement, Derek tosses aside the towel he was using to dry his hair and drops his knees to the bed, running his hands up Stiles’ calves. They’re thin but muscular, pale, dusted with dark hair. Derek knows the exact curve and feel of them quite well by know – after all, he’s drawn Stiles countless times, painted him over and over, snapped hundreds of photographs. Derek has memorized every detail of Stiles’ gorgeous body, but he still can never get enough of exploring him; each touch, each kiss, feels as wondrous and new as it does familiar.
Sweet and hot update, this time with bottom!Derek! :D

Title: Blind Date With A Book
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thepsychicclam | favicon thepsychicclam
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, past Derek/Paige
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 30,361
Warnings: AU: Human, no hale fire, hale family lives, Laura lives, matchmaking
Summary: Stiles thought the Blind Date With a Book trend was a great way to drum up business for his small bookshop. He definitely thought it was a great idea after the hot guy kept returning and buying more blind dates with books.
Derek didn't know how he kept getting set up on blind dates by his family, or why he kept going on them. The highlight of his night was when the date was over and he could go to the little bookshop in town and buy something to read for the rest of the night. He wanted to read, not date.
Really sweet fic with Stiles as a bookshop owner and Derek as an avid reader who keeps escaping into the bookshop after his blind dates. Loved the development of their relationship in this one. The matchmaking Hales were a little much at times, but overall a really enjoyable fic with an adorable ending.

Title: There's a howling that stays beneath my skin
Author: favicon LunaCanisLupus_22
Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles, Cora/OMC, brief Stiles/Malia, past Derek/Braeden
Rating: NC-17

Really lovely, sexy fic that takes place mid-season 5. Loved the characterizations here, and the fallout from Stiles killing somebody was well handled. Wonderful connection between Stiles and Derek, and a nicely uplifting ending.

Summary: (Maybe Stiles has had a few errant fantasies, and he knows that’s weird – that it’s not normal to imagine having sex with your twin brother – but it’s not like he’d ever act on it.)
Super freaking dirtyhot sibcest fic with bonus omega!verse. :D

In your own space, create a fanwork. Make a drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. Create something.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,214

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.

Summary: The Wolf Festival is finally here. Agron and Nasir must deal with being newly crowned royals.

Word Count: 63,458

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

Summary: The laws are clear: omegas are required to have an alpha guardian. So when the sheriff gets shot, Derek is roped in to stepping up as Stiles' temporary alpha while he recovers.
Derek knew it was going to be a bad idea, but he never could have predicted all of the ways that Stiles would end up turning his life upside down.
Really lovely fic with Omega!Stiles having to stay with Derek because his dad is hurt, and of course Derek is prickly and likes his space, but ends up warming up to the charming Stiles. Really sweet and enjoyable read.

I was able to read some quality Teen Wolf fic this month off of my to-read list, and it made me very happy! (I also read some not-so-quality fic that I had bookmarked, and is there anything more disaapointing than bookmarking a long!fic for later, not getting around to it for months, then finally settling in for what your sure will be a hit, only to have to back button a quarter of the way through because you just CANNOT anymore? But I digress.) Here are some of my favorites that I read this month.

Title: The Weathered Shell
Author: favicon trilliath
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 14,356
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, selkie!stiles
Summary: The young man is standing with an arm casually thrown up to lean against the door frame, displaying his bare torso to advantage, his powerful swimmer's shoulders and lean body pale with moonlight. His cocky grin, however, is fading quickly into a look of shock and confusion. Other than a pelt shaped into a sloppy kilt, his legs are bare too, despite the chill winds coming in off the ocean.
"You're not a girl," he says in a gently lilting accent that's like an odd blend of all the coastal voices Derek's ever heard, squinting at Derek like his eyes might somehow be deceiving him.
Unlikely, given his dark beard and broad, well-muscled shoulders, let alone what he's got under his kilt.
Really beautiful fic. I loved the gentleness here, the beautiful melancholic undertone throughout the fic. Selkie!Stiles is wonderful, and I really enjoyed him coming to terms with his bisexuality. Gorgeously written, and a truly lovely and poignant connection between Stiles and Derek.

Title: This Kind of Luxe
Author: favicon horchatita394, favicon weathervaanes, & favicon wishingonalightningbolt
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, brief mention of past Stiles/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,117
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Royalty, hale family lives, no hale fire, firstson!stiles, prince!derek, switching, first time, bottom!derek, bottom!stiles
Summary: As they have for almost every US President since the 1910s, the Prime Minister and the royal head of their country pay a visit to the United States after inauguration. Which is why, when President Jonathan Stilinski is elected into office, Queen Talia Hale of Norland plans their trip.
Such an adorable fic! I'm always a big fan of firstson!Stiles and prince!Derek and getting them both in one fic was beyond awesome! Super lovely romance here, and just a fun, lovely read.

Title: The Boy and the Beast
Author: favicon Dira Sudis
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Allison, past Derek/Kate
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 118,749
Content/Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, wolf!derek
Summary: In which events in Beacon Hills go rather differently from the start, and a Beauty and the Beast (ish) story ensues. (Scott is not a teacup and no one sings about their feelings.)
This was a wonderful, slow burn fic, sort of a retelling of Canon. There's wolf!Derek and curses and dream sharing, and lots of wonderful, gentle pining. I just adored everybody here, and how all of the relationships are portrayed. Derek and Stiles were amazing, and their connection was just great. I also particularly enjoyed Derk and Scott's relationship here. It's like how it could have been in canon if they'd had a different start and Scott had more of a choice in the bite. Just an awesome read.


Title: 5 Reasons Stiles Stilinski is a Horrible Roommate
Author: faviconKuriKuri
Pairing(s): Scott/Stiles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,072
Content/Warnings: sex toys
Summary: 1. He’s bad about remembering to do laundry.
2. He's loud.
3. He never empties the dishwasher.
4. He has no sense of personal space.
5. He doesn't actually want to be Scott's roommate.
Really adorable fic with mutual pining an excellent characterizations. I can totally see their relationship coming about like this.

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

It has been a long while since I read enough awesome Sterek in one month for them to merit their own rec post! But I've been trying to work through some of my "Marked For Later" fics on AO3, and some of my fav authors posted some Sterek this past month, so there's a mix of new and old. :D


banner by [livejournal.com profile] capitu

Title: Red in Tooth
Author: favicon the_ragnarok
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,200
Content: established relationship, biting, light blood play, vampire!kink
Summary: Stiles squirms. “Like, they have the whole narcotic bite thing? And I kind of like having things in my mouth but people are wusses and it’s like, No, Stiles, it hurts, No, Stiles, I need to retain the use of my fingers, and at some point I started fantasizing about biting that made whoever just melt and let me—”
Really hot and a very cool and clever take on this kink.

Title: lick me, lave me, love me
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tryslora
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,373
Content: established relationship, xenophilia, implied bottom!stiles, rimming, lip service comment meme
Summary: It’s not the first time he’s woken like this, a huge paw pressed against his chest, holding him in place. Derek likes to groom him in the morning, likes to let the wolf explore Stiles, taste him.
Super hot established relationship fic with wolf Derek "grooming" Stiles.

Title: Set It Running Free
Author: favicon KuriKuri
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,765
Content/Notes: dub-con, switching, bottom!derek, mostly bottom!stiles
Summary:So after reading several fics back to back that talked about Derek’s “wolf” like it was a separate entity, I need The Fic. You know, the one where Derek’s “wolf” is so separate that Derek's “human” is unaware of what it does. And what it does is Stiles. Frequently.
(Note: Stiles is receptive to Derek/Derek's wolf's advances. The dub-con is more on Derek's part.)
Really interesting concept with Derek's "human" and "wolf" parts being more separate. Which of course leads to wolf sexy times with Stiles that Derek doesn't really remember. Super hot. :D

Title: Delicate? I Went Through That Phase (Part 3 of the Happy Birthday, Mr. Hale Series)
Author: favicon mikkimouse
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,817
Warnings: AU: Human, dad!derek, age difference, light D/s, dirty talk, role play, spanking, desk!sex
Summary: Stiles is coming back from college. Derek has some ideas about how they can spend their time. Smut ensues.
Seriously hot update to a sexy, fun series! Loved the teacher/student role play here, and the little glimpses of ~feelings~ were wonderful.

Title: la raison ne connaît point (Part 2 of the Mates Series)
Author: favicon aprettysmalldose
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, implied Allison/Scott
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,237
Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, underage, barebacking, mates, bottom!stiles, outdoor!sex, road head, no hale fire, hale family lives, dirty talk
Summary: 'that one classy-ass fic where derek brings stiles home with him but doesn't know his name'
Super fucking hot sequel! Stiles's voice is amazing, and getting to see more of their reactions post-mating, and meeting the Hales, was such a treat!

Title: Show Me How We Can Escape
Author: favicon secondstar
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Scott/Kira
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,858
Warnings: AU: Human, AU: Hollywood, actor!stiles, switching, mostly bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles needed a vacation. He deserved it, after working nonstop. Australia felt like a world away from the limelight; just what he needed. He didn't expect to meet Derek, though.
Fun and super sexy fic! The ending was maybe a bit rushed, but overall a really enjoyable read!

Title: Everything's Better Under the Sea
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tryslora | favicontryslora
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Aiden/Lydia/Jackson, Allison/Scott, Isaac/Cora, Erica/Boyd, Laura/Jordan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 19,985
Warnings: AU, creature!fic, mermaid!stiles, shapeshifter!derek, surfer!derek, laura lives
Summary: Everything changes when Derek goes under while surfing, hits his head on a board, and sees a man with a tail swimming away. He wants to know who that was, and what it has to do with Beacon Hills, the one place he never meant to come back to.
Really cool AU! I loved the sort of twist on the Beacon Hills mythology and the soul mate trope, and the ending was great.

Title: Your Majesty
Author: favicon grimm
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, background Lydia/Jackson
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,291
Warnings: AU: Human, ceo!derek, camboy!stiles, sex toys, first time, switching, bottom!derek, mostly bottom!stiles
Summary: It wasn’t like he was a pro or whatever, but like any teenage boy he’d spent a lot of time jerking off, and there were a lot of people on the internet that liked watching that sort of thing. And while the idea of doing actual porn - like, porn with another person’s dick in his ass porn - kind of made him uncomfortable, jerking off by himself in front of a camera sounded okay. If you’re good at something, never do it for free, right?
Prostitution-type fics can be a little hit or miss for me, but I really enjoyed this one. I loved how both Stiles and Derek came across here, and I think the potential creepy factor was definitely reduced by giving us both POVs. The sex was hot, and it was sweet watching them get to know each other. Overall a really enjoyable read. :)

Title: Awake and Unafraid
Author: favicon Green
Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles, background past Scott/Allison
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 31,346
Content/Warnings: AU: Fusion, Awake Fusion, parallel universes, mates, magic!stiles, first time, bottom!stiles
Summary: Since the car accident that took one of his parents (or both, or neither), Stiles has been living two alternating parallel lives.
Really cool fusion with Stiles essentially living two parallel lives. I thought the whole concept was brilliantly executed, and I loved seeing the different characters in each verse and how they differed and stayed the same. Super hot fic, with a clever plot, and satisfying ending.

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

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.

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


Title: Snowmelt (A deleted scene from Chapter 38 of Sansûkh)
Author: favicon determamfidd
Pairing: Gimli/Legolas
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,863
Content/Warnings: established relationship
Summary: For the first time since Edoras, Gimli and Legolas are alone. The battle of the Pelennor Fields has been won. They have an entire suite to themselves in the guest wing of the citadel of Minas Tirith.
And there is a bath.
Such a wonderfully hot and sweet Sansûkh outtake with Gimli and Legolas getting it on for the first time. [This is a "Deleted Scene" from Sansûkh, which is an amazing Thilbo & Gigolas WIP that I highly recommend. I think you'd probably be okay to read this fic without having read Sansûkh, but it'll make a bit more sense if you read the main fic first.]


Title: Post-Game Celebration
Author: favicon razielim
Pairing(s): Jason/Percy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,236
Content/Warnings: AU: High School, underage, first time, bottom!percy, semi-public!sex

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 9,469
Content/Warnings: breakup!fic, future!fic, bottom!ronan, outdoor!sex

Lovely, bittersweet fic with Adam and Ronan having broken up in the past, and trying to make things work again. Great ending.


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


Title: it's shaking the sky and i'm following lightening (part 5 of the Of Magic and Monsters Series)
Author: favicon venomedveins

Word Count: 16,271
Content/Warnings: AU: Fairy Tale & Fantasy, creature!fic, magic!nasir, werewolf!agron, arranged marriage, rough sex, bottom!nasir, MPREG, dream!sex, mention of past sibling incest
Summary: Agron has left for war, but Nasir is now fighting a war at home too. Who is really the hero and who is really the villain?
Awesome update to a fabulous series! Things are starting to get more intense here, and the tension continues to mount. I adore this world the author is creating, and both Agron and Nasir are really wonderfully characterized. (Also, a note about the past Agron/Duro, because that's not generally my thing, but it's all non-explicit and in the past. It does play a part in the story, but this is very much a Nasir/Agron fic.)


Title: Is Forever Enough

Pairings: Derek/Stiles, background Scott/Allison, Cora/Lydia
Rating: NC-17

Really wonderful AU that still manages to perfectly capture that awesome essence of Stiles and Scott's friendship. And then seeing that friendship evolve into something deeper was just lovely.

So, for the first time in several months, I actually read and liked enough Sterek in May to warrant it's own post. But just barely. I'm still on the fence with whether or not I'll watch the next season, but I'm hoping fresh canon with breath some life into that fandom. But IDK, things got so wanky that it feels like so many of my favorite people have left. :(

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.

I read so few Sterek fics this month, it was a little sad. I think the combination of my vacation, lower fic output (especially quality stuff), and a dwindling interest in my part is to blame. I don't think it's so much that my love of the characters is diminishing, but the issues with canon, Hoechlin no longer bing a season regular, and just the fact that I've been trying to write a bit more, means TW is getting pushed more and more to the side. We'll see if the start of season 5 will revitalize things a bit. IN the meantime I have a ton of fics marked for later on ao3 to get reading!

Wow, I read almost no good TW fic this month...There has been a serious lack of fic recently TBH, and the stuff that probably is well written is just not my cup of tea content-wise. That, combined with my current Merlin obsession means this month's rec numbers are a tad low.

With Valentine's day coming up in a week I figured I would round up a few themed recs! These are some of the fics I've read and loved in multiple different fandoms that have something to do with Valentine's Day! :D

The Sterek fic output definitely seems to have slowed down a bit. Which makes me a bit sad. But I also have too much to read already, so I'm sort of happy that I'm not drowning in fic. Here's what I read and loved this month.
