I have a few different rec lists, so here is a handy-dandy post linking you to all of them. Be warned, I am a huge fan of smut and almost all of my recs are rated R or NC-17, so if you are looking for lower-rated fics, this is not the place for you. This is also almost exclusively slash pairings, though every once in awhile a het pairing manages to sneak its way in there.

I've recently started dabbling in fanfic writing, so if you're interested, you can find that HERE.

If you are curious about my likes/dislikes/preferences in fic because you want to make me something (or because you're just nosy), you can find those HERE.

I read a little bit in a lot of different fandoms this month! Mostly I was reading published works in September, but I still managed to sneak in some fanfic! :D

Title: take the world out for a ride
Author: favicon sparklyslug
Pairing(s): Bitty/Jack
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,185
Content/Warnings: established relationship, baker!bitty, secret relationship
Summary: The pressure of acting a bit more or a bit less happy in a Providence coffee shop (roughly the most liberal place on God’s green Earth) doesn’t really measure up to the pressure of being in a NHL locker room, or on NHL ice (roughly the least liberal place on God’s green Earth).
It’s just. It’s just, for himself, Bitty had hoped that it was a performance he was done giving. Just to be able to act happy when he’s happy, and sad when he’s sad. That shouldn’t be so much to ask.
Really lovely fic that takes place a few years down the line with Jack and Bitty living together as "roommates" still keeping their relationship a secret because of Jack's hockey career. There was a quiet sort of angst about the keeping secrets, but even more powerful was the love they both had for one another, and their determination to make things work. I loved Bitty and his bakery, and the ending was really great.


Title: The Hospitality of Hobbits
Author: [livejournal.com profile] diemarysues | favicon diemarysues
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,865
Content/Warnings: bottom!bilbo
Summary: An important visitor deserves only the best of everything. My version of the "Bilbo seduces Thorin the first night they meet" trope.
Smoking hot fic with Bilbo offering Thorin a little extra hospitality...Delicious, delicious porn.


Title: Golden Ticket
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 11,216
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: Fusion, Willy Wonka Fusion
Summary: Arthur's nephew Charlie finds a golden ticket and wins a tour of the Eames Chocolate Factory. Yes, it's a story you already know, but this version has a lot more making out in edible gardens.
Super charming Willy Wonka fusion with Eames perfectly cast as Willy Wonka. Loved Arthur as the doting uncle and the connection between Eames and Arthur was lovely.


Title: Obedience
Author: [livejournal.com profile] bookshop
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,250
Content/Warnings: mild dub-con
Summary: idk, unredeemable smut? In which there is no consent because it's Merlin--like Arthur's going to ask him how he feels about anything, please.
Super hot blow job fic. Loved Arthur's voice in this one.


Title: Preserving Minutes
Author: favicon geoblock
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,834
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!ronan, recreational durg use, mind altering substance, stoned!sex
Summary: So Ronan (accidentally on purpose) dreams some devil's lettuce, and he and Adam get high. Obviously, sappy, drug-fueled sex ensues...
Lovely sexy fic with a wonderfully characterized Ronan, a really great dynamic between Ronan and Adam, and some super hot stoned sex! :)


Title: X Marks the Spot
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden | favicon thehoyden
Pairings: Charles/Erik, brief mentions of Charles/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,195
Content/Notes AU: Fusion, Indiana Jones Fusion, bottom!charles, rimming, first time, shared bed
Summary: The year is 1962, and Charles Xavier is a professor of archaeology who knows how his students feel, whether he wants to or not. He spends his spare time researching a mythical artifact, but he knows better than anyone that X never, ever marks the spot.
Sort of an Indiana Jones-type fusion that was immensely enjoyable. I loved the way the canon people and relationships fit really well into this 'verse, and the connection and build-up was really lovely. Hot sex, and a happy ending made this a wonderful afternoon read. :D

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

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

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

Today I am going to rec ALL THE FANDOMS! But seriously, though. I've been trying to read one longer non-HP fic per week so I can clear out my to-read list, and it's been a lot of fun. :)

Title: the first of many
Author: favicon venvephe
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,828
Content/Warnings: AU:Omega!Verse, alpha/beta/omega dynamics, omega!eggsy, alpha!harry, heat cycles, rimming, bottom!eggsy, knotting, mates, marking, biting, scenting, desk!sex
Summary: Eggsy should have seen this coming.
Looking back, he should have payed more attention to the calendar; he’d been good about taking his suppressants until the last few weeks, when the training exercises and elimination tests had gotten so intense that he’d started to forget the little pills. Dealing with a heat doesn’t seem as horrific after jumping out of an airplane, especially when you’d under the assumption that your ‘chute was faulty, and taking the suppressants was one of those little things that got shuttered off to the side in his mind. If he’d been paying attention it may not have come to - this.
Because Eggsy’s in heat, and there’s only two ways it can go from here.
Crazy hot omega!verse AU with Eggsy unexpectedly going into heat and then him and Harry having some ridiculously hot sex.

Title: Patience and Sheer Determination
Author: favicon blacktofade
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 47,368
Content/Warnings: AU: Alternate First Meeting, fake/pretend relationship, rentboy!eggsy, bottom!eggsy, table!sex, barebacking
Summary: Harry goes undercover to infiltrate the circle of a corrupt overlord and is given Eggsy, a young prostitute, as a token of goodwill. Harry has to live with Eggsy and keep him safe, while maintaining his cover.
Such a brilliant fic! Loved the slight AU, with Harry coming across Eggsy in much less auspicious circumstances. But Eggsy's fire is still more than there, and the chemistry between them is fabulous. Interesting plot, and some seriously lovely relationship development. Plus, hot sex! :D

Title: the parting glass
Author: favicon kirkaut
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy, implied Roxy/Merlin, mention of brief Eggsy/Tilde and past Eggsy/OMCs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 48,525
Content/Warnings: AU: Harry Lives, references to past non-con of the rentboy!eggsy variety, rimming, bottom!eggsy
Summary: The words shrivel and die between them.
Harry's chest hitches on an indrawn breath. The contours of his face are cast dramatically in the fiery hues of the street at night, highlighting the wrinkle in his forehead and the soft slope of his chin and the silvery pink of his scar.
He's beautiful, and Eggsy loves him.
“I miss you.” The confession falls. It lands heavily onto the pavement, cracking into the asphalt. “You're alive, you're right in fucking front of me, and I still miss you.”
God, this fic is just gorgeous! I adore he characterization here and Eggsy's reaction to Harry coming back from the dead is both heartbreaking and painfully realistic. Really beautiful build-up and some seriously hot sex!


Title: We Pull These Jobs To Make A Little Money (No One Gets Hurt If They Don't Act Funny)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] leashy_bebes | favicon leashy_bebes
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, Leon/Elena, Will/Freya, Gwen/Lancelot, past Leon/Morgana
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 48,918
Content/Warnings: AU: Modern, AU: Non-Magical, bottom!merlin, implied switching
Summary: Arthur and his friends have been making their money this way for years. It's all they know and they're good enough to get away with it. Merlin grudgingly works in a bank, wishing his days away. Their worlds collide and everything changes.
AKA: Bank robbers of the round table.
OMG this fic is awesome! I love Arthur and his merry band of bank robbers, and adorable Merlin as a bank teller was perfect. I adored the connection between Merlin and Arthur here, and the sex was just unbelievably hot. Really fun plot, and just an all-around super enjoyable read!


Title: Shut Up And Take A Fucking Bath
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,633
Content/Warnings: established relationship, intercrural sex, maassage!fic, dirty talk, bbtp 2015
Summary: Agron has no appreciation for the comforts of a well-appointed bath. Luckily, Nasir is happy to educate. (Such an altruist, that Nasir.)
Nasir teaches Agron about the pleasures of Roman baths and good god is it delicious! Super hot, and I loved both of their voices here.

Title: Revelationes In Tangendo
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,568
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!nasir, rimming, bbtp 2015
Summary: It still feels odd to choose. To be not only allowed but expected to shape his own purpose every day, in little things and large. Who to fight for. Who to break words or take meals with. Who to fuck.
Gorgeous take on the "missing scene" from Season 2 when Mira interrupts. Super hot, and a really fantastic take on Nasir. Just lovely.

Title: Weather the Storm
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,186
Content/Warnings: established relationship, implied switching, semi-public!sex
Summary: In which Agron and Nasir deal with the snow storm in absolutely the only medically approved way one should ever deal with life-threatening cold. (Also, there’s angsty musings about Castus. If that turns you off, I cannot help you, because Castus is divine and I want a threesome more than I’ve ever wanted a pony, so there.)
Really gorgeous stolen moment between Agron and Nasir during the storm in Mors Indecepta. They both felt beautifully in-character, and Nasir's thoughts on Castus were particularly realistic, if a bit heartachey.


Title: Desperate Games
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Barca/Peitros
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,770
Content/Warnings: bottom!barca, implied switching, bbtp 2015
Summary: In a life that requires deception to survive, Pietros is ever bent on truth, and Barca fears every day it might mark their undoing.
Seriously gorgeous writing and an amazingly characterized Barca. Sexy and sweet.


Title: Timeline Series (3 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] unforgotten | favicon Unforgotten
Pairings: Charles/Erik, implied Alex/Armando
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 31,625
Content/Notes AU: No Beach Divorce (sort of), time travel, bottom!charles, implied switching
Summary: After Magneto of an X2-ish future succeeds in the unthinkable, Charles sends his consciousness back to 1962 to guide Erik away from the path that will lead to the genocide of the human race forty years hence. Charles knows that Erik has always loved him, and intends to use this knowledge + sex to seduce Erik away from his ideals in his youth. There's no way this well-thought-out, sensible, debugged and 100% bulletproof plan can possibly go wrong.
Really cool set of fics that have Charles going back in time when he first met Erik and seducing him for the greater good. Interesting, and funny, and sexy reads!

Title: Bite Me
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gracerene
Fandom: X-Men Movies (First Class)
Pairings: Charles/Erik
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~900
Content/Warnings: established relationship, biting, telepathy, frottage, hotel!sex
Summary: For the prompt: Erik has a lot of teeth and Charles wants to ask him to bite Charles all over but he doesn't know how, so he does it to Erik hoping for reciprocation.
Notes: Written for a prompt by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] alby_mangroves at the awesome Panfandom Lip Service Commentfest.

This is my first time writing this pairing, but I've been reading them for ages, and I was quite inspired by this prompt! Hope you enjoy!

Unbeta'd. I think I caught all the typos, but feel free to let me know if I missed one. :)

Charles/Erik from X-Men was this past month's obsession. I got into them a while ago, but I think I got distracted by something else shiny before I really had a chance to read/rec too many things. So I figured it was time to remedy that! This might be the largest of my rec posts this month and there is a good amount of variety here as well. :D

I'm [obviously] very attracted to pairings that have that love/hate dynamic, so I don't think I ever stood a chance against these two. Getting more back story in First Class and seeing their chemistry together was really just the nail in the coffin. Such a wonderful pairing, and so much history to play around with.

I splashed around in a lot of different fandoms this month. Sometimes I just get a craving for a particular pairing, you know? Plus, I kept stumbling upon awesome reccers who (like me) rec in multiple fandoms. So I obviously had to check out their recommendations. :D

Totally recommend [livejournal.com profile] bea_recs. She has rec lists for a TON of different fandoms (she even has an H/D one that I still need to check out). She doesn't usually say why she's reccing something, but I've gone through her lists in multiple fandoms and they've all been pretty solid fics.

Avengers: Steve/Tony )

Heroes: Nathan/Peter )

The Hobbit: Bilbo/Thorin )

Inception: Arthur/Eames )

X-Men: Charlies/Erik )

The newest X-Men movie was awesome and gave me so many Magneto/Professor X feels! So naturally I had to read some fic :D

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