Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Better Luck With Girls Adult, Buffy/Faith by [livejournal.com profile] shrift.

"Ever had sex with someone who had superpowers?" Buffy asked.

"Not yet, but I hear it's wicked awesome," Faith said.

"It's a perk," Buffy said, and kissed her.



Chuck

I Hate This Part (Right Here) by [livejournal.com profile] seperis Chuck, Casey, Sarah, gen-nish Rating: PG-13. there's nothing in the world like finding Seperis has written fic in a fandom you're desperate to read. A mission goes awry and Chuck is ... hurt. Casey and Sarah take care of it.

Null by [livejournal.com profile] nightfawkes PG Chuck/Casey. I'm a sucker for 2nd PPV fic. You’re shaking again, and you don’t dare stop to think about why. You whisper, “Is the whole more than the sum of its parts? Am I nothing but a lie?”

“You are not the lie, Chuck. You are the truth. You are real.”

“But who am I? If no one knows me, then do I exist?”


Only You by [livejournal.com profile] daria234
Chuck goes back over later to help Casey get rid of the bodies. He forgets when this stopped being a horror and started being a nice thing to do as a team player.

Casey is fussy. About everything: all the details of the cleanup, doing things right, leaving no trace. Chuck's used to it by now, but it had taken him a while to understand how all that fussiness could co-exist in a man whose fists and guns and angry eyes could make him seem like a wild animal. Eventually Chuck figures it out, and it doesn't seem so crazy.

It seems like being good at a job.


Crossover! Battlestar Galactica/Star Trek

Rising Sign by [livejournal.com profile] ninety6tears Adult. Kara-centric. When Kara Thrace flies through the wormhole near the end of Season Three, she finds Earth-- but not the Earth that Galactica's been searching for. Instead she finds herself hailed by a ship calling itself the USS Enterprise! And yet it's so much more than that. Kara and Kirk are practically hetero life mates, she and Spock don't see eye to eye and she fraks nearly everyone on the ship. Her relationship with McCoy is beautiful

Crossover! Firefly/Star Wars

by [livejournal.com profile] vaznetti Gen River Tam and Yoda. There aren't enough words to express the genius of this fic.

"Hmpf," says the gnome. "Not wise at all." It turns and walks away from her; when River stands she can feel her feet squishing into the damp ground. Leaves brush her head as she walks around the trees in her path; small insects buzz against her ears as she follows the hobbling gnome. There's dirt between her toes now and a twig in her hair, as if the world was trying to prove itself to her.

She catches up with the gnome at a small round building. "I'm not real," she confides.

"All is not illusion," it tells her. "Learn you must." It invites her in and gives her a bowl of things grown on this very planet; she takes each piece out, one by one, to memorize texture, shape, color, before she tastes it. Earth-that-was had this wealth, she thinks. Maybe it was easier to believe in things, when there were so many of them.


Gossip Girl

Yes, I may have quit the show, although the surprise casting of Billy Baldwin may lure me back, I'm still reading some of the fic

Harry Potter

The House That Cedric Built by King's Cross Rated R. Wonderful Draco POV of an 8th year and a 5th house. Goes back and forth in the timeline. Lovely, lovely voices. Astoria -- or Asteria as the author has chosen to spell it -- is a wonderful character

Leverage


Plot Devices by [livejournal.com profile] entangled_now PG-13, Eliot/Hardison Crackish, amnesia themed fic
in which Eliot is not Brian Westwood, or Jason Bourne.


SouthLand A show I've watched since the beginning and have recced in the past in case you're new and want something to read

A Little Mental Yoga by Dsudis. Cooper/Sherman, Adult. Telepathy fic that isn't crack. That's right, in a non-sci fic/fantasy fandom. Should be impossible, but totally isn't


Star Trek

Little Shadow by [livejournal.com profile] hollycomb Adult, Chekov/Sulu Phenomenal story of Chekov's years in the Academy. He falls desperately in love with his roommate Sulu. The breathtakingly sharp teenage angst is stunning.

You wanna stand by my side? Darlin', Your heads not right. by [livejournal.com profile] xsaturated Spock/McCoy [my secret favorite ST ship] Starts with Spock getting de-aged and only allowing Bones to be near him. Ends with a crew against crew baseball game and Spock learning to heckle. Too awesome for words.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Less Than Real by Zulu Faith/Dawn, Explicit. This fic is gorgeous, just gorgeous. It begins with "When Dawn was real ... " and goes from there. The voices are sublime.

Crossover
Leverage/Veronica Mars


Four Times Parker Got Away from Veronica, and One Time She Didn't by ScintillaIo Veronica/Parker. Exactly what the title says it is, also short, simple, and perfect. Veronica always catches her mark. Parker only gets caught when she wants to.

Friday Night Lights/Sons of Anarchy/Supernatural

Not Because You Should, But Because You Must by [livejournal.com profile] devilc Adult Tim/OFC, Jax/Tim/Dean. This is So. Much. Fun. Seriously. If you're familiar with the fandoms [and even if you're not] this is a blast.

Dark Angel

Rage Against the Dying of the Light by [livejournal.com profile] lyl_devil PG-15 Species study. Fascinating look at how the X-series self-governs and the implications [non-porny] of heat.

Dune

This City, The Ruins in Its Heart by [livejournal.com profile] bantha_fodder Gen. Alia character study that nails it so hard I bet Frank feels it in his grave.

She is preborn, adult before her time, and the children of the sietch are not her friends. Abomination, they declare, harbinger, coan-teen, words they can barely pronounce, let alone understand, and if she were on any other planet her eyes would well with tears, and she would leak water for her childhood.

She is Fremen, though, and she conserves her water.

Cultivates her anger.


Gossip Girl

Charlie Foxtrot by [livejournal.com profile] artemis_sparks R Dan/Chuck, Dan/Blair, Chuck/Blair. Future fic, Dan POV he finally gets Blair and Chuck. And himself. Just perfect.

I would like to pause at this juncture and make this an overall Author rec. After reading Charie Foxtrot I was so impressed with how she got the characters and their language and their motivations and skillfully wove together what was great with the books and what was great with Season 1 and ran with it that I read every single fucking thing she has ever written.

Let me tell you, she's good. Other outstanding GG fics include: On How to Be Lovely; A History of Waldorf and Hepburn, 11.27.08, and All the Girls We Could Be

In Harry Potter

try
L'Effet
and Secretary/Assistant

Little Red Corguette by [livejournal.com profile] blamebrampton PG Draco/Harry I love every single thing I've read that Blamebrampton has written and this - is spectacular. Draco works for the Department of Standards. This years corguettes aren't up to European standards. Viva La Revolution!

RPS(f)

The Remedy by [livejournal.com profile] moosesal NC-17 Chad Michael Murray/Kenzie Dalton; Chad/Jensen Ackles; Jensen Ackles/Danneel Harris; ultimate Chad/Danneel/Jensen Warnings/Enticements: het, slash, and threesome sex; cunnilingus; rimming; felching; pegging; double penetration; and one bestiality joke.

Seriously, this is some funny, FUNNY stuff. It's also got amazing voices, wonderfully hot sex, and an ease of reading that makes it fly by and you wish there were more.

DCU/TFaTF


Faster Than a Bird of Prey by [livejournal.com profile] merfilly and [livejournal.com profile] ilyena_sylph

Black Canary goes undercover in the street racing world. Pre TFaTF

Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Torchwood

My Immortal by [livejournal.com profile] elisi Buffy/Jack. NC-17 Jack *is* the Immortal and he and Buffy set out to have a fun, romantic, no-strings relationship while he is in Rome.

This links to the epilogue but there is a link there to take you to previous chapters. EXCELLENT characterization. Cameos by Buffy crew.

Burn Notice/Bandom FOB

People Say A Lot Of Things They Don’t Mean by [livejournal.com profile] scribblinlenore NC-17. OMG DUDE THIS IS SO AWESOME and I had to google to see what band Pete and Patrick are in because I'm THAT clueless. Of course, Michael is that clueless too so I don't feel *quite* so bad.

He peers out the peephole, and standing there is a dark, skinny mess of a soon-to-be-dead man, covered in tattoos, wearing yesterday’s makeup. Apparently, it’s not early for him, so much as very, very late. Michael considers the possibilities, black ops maneuvers for hiding bodies that involve duct tape, cuticle scissors and a bag of quick lime. The banging gets even louder, the soon-to-be dead man really putting his back into it, and Michael flings open the door. Pistol-whipping in broad daylight, he figures, will work just as well as stealth.

The soon-to-be dead man blinks at him, all big, dark eyes of doom and quivering lip.

“I lost Patrick,” he says mournfully.

Michael sorts through all the code phrases he’s ever memorized, not that they’d be current anymore, not that this guy looks like anybody’s idea of an agent. Old habits die hard. He comes up with nothing.

He crosses his arms over his chest. “Nice eyeliner.”

“Guyliner, dude,” is the automatic answer, as if the subject has come up before. “I’m looking for Patrick. Have you seen him?”


Harry Potter/Supernatural

January Girl by [livejournal.com profile] parenthetical Luna Lovegood/Dean Winchester. PG-13 and absolutely delightful

With Sam trying out normal life at Stanford and his father working an undercover gig across the country, Dean is on his own and getting reckless. While investigating a series of mysterious deaths, he runs into a strange witch called Luna Lovegood, who is searching for what she calls a 'Horcrux'. (Seriously?) Suddenly Dean finds himself dealing with evil wizards, broomsticks, Bat-Bogey Hexes, Dementors, mirrors which order him to wear a pointy hat, and much more - all the while trying not to think too much about Luna's last name and whether it's accurate.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Battlestar Galactica Crossover

Bug on the Cosmic Windscreen by [livejournal.com profile] missmurchison PG. Spike, Starbuck, Roslin, the whole gang. This is brilliant. It's funny and heartwarming and heartbreaking and so very, very satisfying. It's canon compliant with Buffy through Chosen and BSG through Pegasus.

Friday Night Lights

Burn Up Hard and Bright by [livejournal.com profile] inlovewithnight College fic. Read the spoiler warnings at the top of the fic, please. Matt Saracen/Brian Williams. This is truly wonderful. TRULY the Matt voice shines and Brian's voice does too.

Iron Man Movie Vid

Butterflies and Hurricanes by [livejournal.com profile] humansrsuperior Gorgeous vid, chillbump inducing.

Leverage

The Hole by [livejournal.com profile] darkeyedwolf Adult. Hardison/Elliot. Great Hardison voice, good show feel. Very funny.

Supernatural

Better Than Wine by [livejournal.com profile] mirabella Sam/Dean/Castiel, NC-17 From Castiel's POV, outstanding voice. Best SPN fic I've read in a while

Castiel is not a stupid person. Angel. Whatever. He knows what drunkenness is, for yea, there have been fruits of the vine for all the long years of Creation and it wasn't long before Man looked on them and found them good. And there was wine in the temple, wine in the Sacrament, making glad the heart of Man, causing the lips of those who are asleep to speak. He's pretty sure there was something about breasts being as clusters of the vine, except he always feels a little uncomfortable looking too closely at that part of the Holy Writ. The point being: wine. So he knows what drunkenness is. Better than these children do. He's just… out of practice.

Battlestar Galactica

tension like release by [livejournal.com profile] pirateygoodness Starbuck/Admiral Cain NC-17 Cain's eyes say frak me and her mouth says try something, and Kara's not sure how that all adds up, but the slow itch of curiosity at the back of her neck says she's not about to leave before she finds out

very yummy.

Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz by [livejournal.com profile] bop_radar This is a Gaius Balthar character study and it's *awesome* the song, which I never would have thought to pair with Balthar is a perfect choice. Even if you hate him with a passion you should watch this vid.

Birds of Prey

Mood Theme


Birds of Prey Moodtheme by [livejournal.com profile] falsefoxglove Lemme tell you. This is fucking AWESOME. If I weren't so damned lazy, technologically impaired, and had a photobucket or some such I would have done this. Alas, I *am* lazy, impaired, and without a hosting site, so, I go without.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

How Would Buffy Vote by [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri Gen. This is *awesome* not so much ficcish as little drabbles of each of the characters, each completely perfect and awesome, a little sad, and totally hysterical.

Friday Night Lights

I drove the crack_van all month. 12 fic recs, 1 crossover rec, 1 vid. They've all been recced here before, except the vid so if you're new to me or the fandom you should find something.

Gossip Girl

Do you have a secret!fandom!shame? I do. And it involves Gossip Girl. My favorite GG fic is Blair/Dan.

::Hangs head::

Anyone who knows how I feel about the *show* knows I detest Dan. He's judgemental. He's got a chip on his shoulder. He's more boring and "perfect" than Brandon Walsh and I CAN'T STAND HIM. But then there's Blair/Dan fic and I can't help but draw hearts all around it.

Blair/Dan AU of Doom by [livejournal.com profile] mardia. Starts with Serena away at Boarding School, Blair and Dan get assigned to do a project together and eventually become friends. Several completed stories, on-going universe. This is the tag page, you'll have to go back 20 to get to the beginning. You can fall into this verse for hours.

before the glaciers drown us by [livejournal.com profile] irishmizzy PG-13, Blair/Dan This is a Yale fic which is the best kind of Secret!Fandom!Shame

Some asshole raises his hand and asks about the required books and seriously, Blair can feel herself aging, one second at a time. Someone else stammers a question about the grading rubric and the familiarity of his voice makes Blair's head snap up. She hasn't seen him, not even in passing, since orientation in August. Even though she can only see the back of his head and a hideous sweater, she totally knows it's Humphrey. God, he would ask about the grading system.

Like she needed another reason to drop this class.


Bury Me in an Avalanche of Tingles by [livejournal.com profile] cashewdani Blair/Dan A grouping of stories [all linked to in the header of this post], this is the third they can be read individually and stand alone but should really be read together, and in order. Ratings vary from PG-13/R. AU during the summer between the seasons.

When his caller ID says Waldorf, he answers with no hesitation. He’s actually been that bored recently.

She doesn’t sound like herself as she says, “Humphrey, remind me that Brooklyn is shittier than I feel right now.” Kind of shaky and unsure, and even though he’s getting sick of the borough, he knows Brooklyn is definitely in better shape than she is right now.

Dan starts talking about the used bookstore he went to, and this poem by Larry Levis he found that he can’t get out of his head. He somehow stops himself from quoting his favorite line.

He only gets off the phone with her when she says they’re pulling up outside her father’s house. After hearing the thanks, which seemed like it held a hint of a smile, the line goes dead. He realizes, later on, that in his desire for human interaction, he’d never even asked why she was calling him.



And for something NOT Blair/Dan related I give you,

Lies My Father Told Me by [livejournal.com profile] moosesal Chuck character study. PG. Serious angst warning. Chuck found it hard to remember a time when he didn't drink or pop the occasional pill. Not that he was an addict. He wasn't stupid.

As fucked up as it sounded, his father'd raised him to be smarter than that.

And my own secret, I read this fic and clicked on the feedback button, but the link was broken so I've been too lazy to tell Mosca how much I loved it. Hopefully, she'll see this and know. If not I may have to email her.

Gossip Girl

wherever you go, wherever you run by [livejournal.com profile] kaitoujeanne Chuck/Blair/Nate NC-17

He went to Paris looking for questions to answers that bothered him so. He was impressive, young and aggressive savin the world on his own. But the warm summer breezes, the french wines and cheeses put his ambition at bay. The summers and winters, scattered like splinters, and four or five years slipped away

Oh wait. I'm sorry, that was a Jimmy Buffett song. Oops. I realize I'm probably the only person in the world that would think of this song during and after reading this fic, but there you have it. It's AWESOME.
