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.

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.

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

Title: Party girls don't get hurt
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs | favicon sirona
Pairings: Steve/Tony, Tony/OCs, Steve/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 12,871
Content/Notes AU: Alternate First Meeting, bottom!tony, age difference
Summary: Steve never slept under the ice. Howard found him, and got him back, and Steve married Peggy, and Howard married Maria, and then there was Tony. This is the story of Tony growing up with Steve very much present in his life, and everything that changed because of it - and some things that didn't.
Really beautiful written and very cool AU, with Steve having been around all of Tony's life, and the MCU movies happening much earlier in Tony's life. LOVED the age difference here and the dynamics between Steve and Tony. Their relationship was wonderfully written, and the whole development was really spot on.


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

Title: Double Jeopardy
Author: favicon shortlimbs
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 7,976
Content/Warnings: drinking games
Summary: "Eric Richard Bittle does not choke on his drink. He is not thinking about Jack’s hands, nor is he thinking about twisting, checking, or any combination of the two. He is just a small southern boy who came to play hockey and mind his own business."
Super cute fic with a really great ensemble cast, and some beautiful mutual pining from Jack and Bitty.

Title: The Left Hand of Godlessness
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tourdefierce | favicon tourdefierce
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack, past Jack/Parse, background Shitty/Lardo
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 38,044
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!bitty, bottom!jack, addiction recovery
Summary: If Jack’s learned anything from Shitty, it’s that Jack deserves nice things now. There is not a timetable on happiness. And Shitty is certain a future means “fucking fuck all” if Jack’s “a miserable, broken robot”. And regardless of any promises, Jack is certain no one could protect him from Eric Bittle because even the armor of Jack’s recovery had done nothing in the face of southern hospitality and unconditional, unapologetic love.
Between Shitty and Bitty, Jack is spoiled with the now.
Wonderfully real fic that cover's Jack's addition and continuous recovery. Jack was really beautifully characterized, and the development between Jack and Bitty's relationship was perfection.


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

JFC this is basically the hottest thing ever.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,579
Content/Warnings: AU: Magical, AU: Modern, bottom!merlin, drunk!sex, rimming, light bondage, accidental bonding!fic, merlin holidays 2015
Summary: Merlin's mum always told him to stay away from Druid festivals. Unfortunately, Merlin never has been any good at listening.
Or, five times Merlin and Arthur shag after waking up accidentally soulbonded together, and one time they don't.
Really lovely and super sexy fic with Merlin and Arthur accidentally getting soul-bonded without liking each other much. Which leads to lots of hot sex and of course ~feelings.

Title: The Lake
Author: favicon Magnolia822
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, past Arthur/Gwen
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,565
Content/Warnings: AU: Reincarnation, AU: Modern, bottom!merlin, memory loss, merlin holidays 2015
Summary: After years of waiting for Arthur, Merlin can’t take it anymore and uses a memory-wiping spell on himself. Since the spell, every year on the anniversary of Arthur’s death, Merlin returns to the lake like a migrant bird. It’s a compulsion he cannot overcome, but he doesn’t know why he does it.
Really lovely Modern Reincarnation type fic. Loved seeing Arthur get used to the modern world, and Merlin rediscover himself with Arthur.


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

Title: a sequence that you never learned
Author: favicon annataylor
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock, past Spock/Uhura
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 65,105
Content/Warnings: fake/pretend relationship, marriage!fic, kid!fic, bottom!spock, implied switching
Summary: When Jim gets it in his head to adopt an eight year old Vulcan, Spock presents a logical solution to the issue of Jim's humanity: marriage to a Vulcan citizen.
Really fantastic fic with Spock and Kirk getting fake married to adopt an adorable Vulcan child, and of course there is glorious mutual pining. The characterizations are fantastic, and the build is really great. Very satisfying read.

Day 4

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.

I just started by new job today, so I do not have time to write anything. I do, however, have some multi-fandom recs of some non-HP fics I read and loved recently.

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.

Title: it's so surprisingly easy now
Author: [livejournal.com profile] tryslora
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,057

Super lovely future!fic with a wonderful characterized Jack and a wonderful relationship between Jack and Bitty.

Title: never could be sweeter than with you
Author: favicon sarcasticfishes
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,024
Content/Warnings: intercrural!sex
Summary: Eric came to a halt, finally noticing what was draped over the bare, stripped mattress. He frowned, picking it up. A jacket.
Lovely, gentle fic that had Jack and Bitty coming together after Jack graduated. The pining is lovely, as is the easy acceptance from them both that they are a thing that is happening.

Title: Drop It While It's Hot
Author: favicon esterbrook
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,214
Content/Warnings: outdoor!sex
Summary: As soon as the screen goes dark, Bitty throws himself backwards onto his bed, pulls a pillow over his face, and screams into it. Jack is coming to visit in less than a month! Practically tomorrow! Which is a million years from now!
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

Word Count: 29,510
Content/Warnings: AU: Fairy Tale & Fantasy, creature!fic, magic!nasir, werewolf!agron, marriage!fic, rough sex, bottom!nasir, MPREG
Summary: The Wolf Festival is finally here. Agron and Nasir must deal with being newly crowned royals.
Another awesome update! I liked how the Gerulf thread was closed up, and some new villains perfectly setup for the next installment. This definitely seemed like the calm before the storm, but what a sexy calm it was!


Title: Logical Erotics
Author: [livejournal.com profile] entrenous88
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 63,458
Content/Warnings: AU: Academy, teacher/student relationship, semi-public!sex, bottom!kirk, dub con elements
Summary: Just returned from a difficult space mission and about to begin teaching at Starfleet Academy, Spock chooses a logical way to relieve stress: a sexual encounter with someone he'll never meet again. But when Spock discovers his partner of one night is Jim Kirk, a promising new cadet at Starfleet, he's torn between his rational decision to avoid intimate relationships and his increasing fascination with Jim. 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.

Word Count: 6,414

Oh JFC this was too damn hot. Omega!Verse and cops and porn shoots and basically just amazing.

Title: You're a Mess, But You're a Catch to Me
Author: favicon jsea
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 11,634
Warnings: AU: Omega!verse, alpha/beta/omega dynamics, omega!stiles, heat cycles, tw fall harvest 2015
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.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 13,315 total
Warnings: underage, mates, rimming, accidental bonding
Summary: It's all Scott's fault, but if he's honest, Stiles doesn't mind if it means Stiles gets Derek in the end. Of course, there are complications along the way.
Super fabulous series with Derek and Stiles having some kind of connection, but Derek is, of course, reluctant to seal the deal for ~reasons~/ Cue Stiles doing everything he can to come up with a loophole.

Title: Alone Together

Warnings: AU: Royalty, AU: Fantasy, prince!derek, mermaid!stiles, wolf!derek, tw fall harvest 2015

I was sick at the beginning of the month, which mean I had two days with nothing to do but read fic! I took the opportunity to finally read a few of the fics that had been on my to-read list for ages. It was both wonderful and immensely satisfying! Here are some of my favorites from the month in a bunch of different fandoms. :D

rectober banner 4
banner by [livejournal.com profile] nerak_rose


Title: All It Does Is Rain Series (2 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] theladyingrey42 | favicon theladyingrey42
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17 overall
Word Count: 19,909 total
Content/Notes first time, bottom!steve
Summary: In which the Avengers rebuild their home, superheroes are more than just the things that made them super, and communication is hard.
Sweet little series with a wonderful Steve and Tony. I liked that the two fics are from different POVs, so we really get inside the character's heads. Great characterizations, and a lovely connection between these two.


Title: A Cure For Boredom
Author: favicon emmagrant01
Pairing: Sherlock/John, John/OMC, John/OFC, John/OFC/OFC, John/OMC/OFC (Please note that Sherlock is present for all of the interactions between John and the OCs)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 81,665
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!john, bottom!sherlock, light D/s, dom!sherlock, sub!john, threesome (m/m/f and f/m/f), light bondage, blindfolds, first time, sort of open relationship, rimming, dirty talk, double penetration (female), voyeurism, exhibitionism, public!sex
Summary: They'd never talked about sex in the year they'd known each other. Well, that wasn't quite correct: Sherlock had never said a word about sex; John had bemoaned his personal dearth of it on many occasions.
I must say that I'm normally not a big fan of threesome/polyamory/open relationship type fics, so I was really unsure bout this one going into it. But, like everybody had assured me, it was brilliant. This is quite *my* Sherlock and John, but I loved them nonetheless. I adored the relationship between Sherlock and John here, the love and trust, and fear and uncertainty of the other's feelings. The sex scenes were smoking hot, but even hotter was how in control of everything Sherlock was. Even though most of the fic is John getting off with other people, Sherlock is an undeniable presence throughout the fic. I thought the ending was great, and very fitting for this Sherlock and John.


Title: Superman For Sale
Author: favicon dm_wyatt
Pairing(s): Clark/Lex, mention of past Clark/OMC and Clark/Lois
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 80,830
Content/Notes: post-rift, future!fic, magic, dub-con, bonding!fic, bottom!clark
Summary: Clark goes missing and Lex tries to figure out why. He ends up "buying" Superman from a kidnapper, who had put him under a spell... Things don't go quite as planned.
Really interesting read! Definitely a little mushy in places and not always the most sophisticated, but I really enjoyed the plot, and I loved Clark and Lex's connection.


Title: Our Days of Blood and Sunset
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 11,130
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!nasir, disability!fic (sort of)
Summary: Nasir knows he should not be angry at someone he’d thought lost forever, someone he loves this much who has been hurt this badly; but he can’t help it, either.
Really beautifully written fic that deals with Nasir's understandably complex feelings about Agron's unexpected return from the dead. It all felt so realistic and believable, and it was really wonderful watching both Nasir and Agron deal with the aftermath of Agron's decision, and seeing them work their way back together.

Title: steal me and shield me (Part 7 of the Of Magic and Monsters Series)
Author: favicon venomedveins
Pairing: Agron/Nasir, other background/past pairings
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,051 of 155,638 total
Content/Warnings: AU: Fairy Tale & Fantasy, creature!fic, magic!nasir, werewolf!agron, arranged marriage, rough sex, bottom!nasir, MPREG
Summary: Agron and Nasir are in a race against time as the Wolf Festival approaches and Gerulf's plan begins to be revealed.
Wonderful addition! I liked seeing the Geroff thread wrapped up, but given the introduction of the"Roman" vampires, there is still plenty more to overcome! Super hot, and I adored all of the lovely Nagron moments.

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

Reveals have gone up at [livejournal.com profile] avengersfest, so I can claim/repost my offering! This is not my usual pairing, and it was definitely interesting trying these two out, but I'm pretty happy overall with how it turned out. It was also my first exchange, and while it was definitely a bit nerve-wracking, it was also a fun experience. Though I still don't think I'll ever be ready for [livejournal.com profile] hd_erised level exchange. I'll just continue to mod in the background... :D

Title: Call it Magic
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gracerene
Fandom: Avengers
Pairing: Loki/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~2,500
Content/Warnings: sort of established relationship, kind of fuck buddies, Tony's not really sure where they're at TBH, magic, curious!tony, light bondage, light D/s undertones, blow jobs, face-fucking
Summary: Magic is fascinating. So is Loki.
Notes: This is my first time writing this pairing, but when I saw your sign-up, [livejournal.com profile] corcalamus, this idea immediately popped into my head. I had a lot of fun playing around with these two, and I really hope you enjoy!

The title is a line from the song "Magic" by Coldplay.

ALSO, I should take this moment to mention that I participated in the [livejournal.com profile] avengersfest exchange! It was my first exchange and my first non-HP fest, and I have some ~thoughts~ I will be sharing about that later, but in the meantime, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the awesome fic I received, To Strike A Match, which is a Stony soulmark fic, and super adorable. :D

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

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

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.

Still on the MCU train, and I recently discovered the Tony/J.A.R.V.I.S. pairing, which is hot as hell and I desperately need more of in my life!

Title: Let's Face It, This is Not the Worst Thing You've Caught Me Doing
Author: favicon SakuraTsukikage
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,722
Content/Warnings: established relationship
Summary: Steve has never given anyone a blowjob before, but he's willing to give it a try.
Basically Steve blowing Tony for the first time and it is unbelievably hot!

Title: (There'll Be Bluebirds Over) the Highway to Hell
Author: [livejournal.com profile] what_alchemy | favicon what_alchemy
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 37,734
Content/Notes pre-serum Steve, switching, rimming, bottom!steve, bottom!tony
Summary: Steve Rogers never expected to find himself back in his original body. He also never expected Tony Stark.
I'm generally not a big fan of pre-serum Steve fics, but I keep giving them a try, and this is probably the best one I've read. I really loved Steve in this and how he had to work through both his issues with his old body, his place on the team, and his feelings for Tony. Really lovely fic.

Title: You're Walking the Wire (between pain and desire) [part 6 in the Don't Look too Closely (all the angles are oblique) Series]
Author: [livejournal.com profile] shaenie | favicon shaenie
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 39,908
Content/Notes AU: Pre-Avengers, D/s, dom!tony, sub!steve, BDSM, switching, whipping, bondage, gagging, dirty talk, sex toys, flogging, marking, subspace, aftercare, pain play, costume!kink, blood play, some role reversal
Summary: “JARVIS, do a soft and hard line sweep of the entire tower and a two block radius for redline equipment.”
“Yes, Sir,” JARVIS says.
“What does that mean?” Steve asks.
“It means we both got a call to report to SHIELD thirty seconds after we started talking about the other potential members of the Initiative,” Tony says. “That doesn’t strike you as an unlikely coincidence?”
Super sexy update to one of my favorite series! I just adore the BDSM relationship here, and the way Steve and Tony really branch out and explore their dynamic. This fic has a bit of Steve experimenting with taking the lead, and I loved seeing how that headspace affected him. Plus, watching Tony bring him back was super hot. Definitely gets even kinkier in this one, so mind the tags. :D

Super hot; loved Tony getting turned on by Jarvis saying his name.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,126
Content/Warnings: sex toys, bottom!tony, dirty talk
Summary: "Here goes nothing. Or, more accurately, here goes 223 hours of engineering dedicated to my dick. I can't think of a better expenditure of time."
"The latest satellite control system StarkTech developed for the Air Force AWACs program detected and diverted four missiles over neutral airspace this morning, Sir," JARVIS pointed out.
Tony grinned. "That means I've earned this!"
JFC, I did not know I needed this in my life. But I really, really do. Super hot.

Super hot fic with Jarvis essentially taking control of the suit and showing Tony some modifications that he made...

Content/Notes sex toys, bottom!tony
Summary: This... was not what Tony had in mind when he decided to design himself a new dildo. You won't hear him complaining about the results, however.
So Jarvis takes control of the Iron Man armor and fuck Tony and it's basically the hottest thing ever.

Title: Hold On Let Go
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gracerene
Fandom: The Avengers MCU
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~3,000
Content/Warnings: Age of Ultron spoilers, missing scene, established relationship, anal sex, fingering, tractor sex, bottom!Steve
Summary: The barn smells of stale hay, and some kind of warm wood, and Tony knows that most people would find the scent comforting, but it just makes his skin prickle.
Notes: I was talking with [livejournal.com profile] alby_mangroves when I was in the middle of writing my first Stony ficlet, Heat, and she was asking if John Deere factored in at all. Sadly, it did not, but it got me thinking of tractor sex and how that was a thing that needed to happen.

I had originally been planning on writing some tractor blowjobs, and potentially something cracky and ridiculous (Tony riding Steve riding a tractor, anyone?). But then I was rewatching Wet Hot American Summer, and felt a bit inspired by the seriously hot gay sex scene (NSFW) where the taller/buffer dude gets banged by his dark haired luvah. :D

Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] capitu for the read through and [livejournal.com profile] crazyparakiss for the beta!

So Age of Ultron definitely gave me a lot of Stony feels. I need a million more people to be ficcing right now! :D

It also gave me some Loki/Thor cravings, since I was v sad about the lack of Loki this time around.

The Avengers: Steve/Tony )

Thor: Loki/Thor )

Title: Warmth
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gracerene
Fandom: The Avengers MCU
Pairing: Steve/Tony, vaguely implied Bruce/Natasha
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~3,850
Content/Warnings: Age of Ultron spoilers, post-AoU, blow jobs, dirty talk, anal sex, barebacking, bottom Steve
Summary: After defeating Ultron, Tony and Steve "talk" things out.
Notes: Sequel to Heat. I'd recommend reading that one first, but I don't think it's necessary to understand this one.

I hadn't planned on writing a sequel, but I got some lovely comments asking for more, and then I had a little smutty plot bunny, and here we are. Basically all smut! I hope ya'll enjoy! :)

Two quick notes: I don't mention Pepper in this, but I'm going with the idea that her and Tony broke up before the movie, so no infidelity here. I also find the arc reactor super hot, so for sexiness purposes, I'm ignoring the end of Iron Man 3...aka Tony still has the arc reactor.

Title: Heat
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gracerene
Fandom: The Avengers (MCU)
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~1,850
Content/Warnings: Age of Ultron spoilers, forced proximity/bed sharing, intergluteal sex, hand jobs, morning sex
Summary: Steve and Tony share a bed and end up getting more than they'd bargained for.
Notes: This is not a terribly unique idea and I'm sure there will be tons of fic exploring the obviously missing scene from Age of Ultron where Steve and Tony totally share a bed at Clint's house, but I thought I'd offer my take. This is my first time writing this pairing, though I've been a hard-core since the first Avengers movie came out. AoU definitely jump-started my Stony feels and I had to fic my way through them. :D

Here are a few of the fics from various fandoms I read and enjoyed throughout February. Not too many, as I was mostly reading Merlin fic, TBH.

The Avengers: Steve/Tony )

The Hobbit: Bilbo/Thorin )

Star Trek: Kirk/Spock )
