All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade by [livejournal.com profile] lexiesloan Blair/Tim

“Texas?” Her mother’s nose wrinkles in the same manner and Blair has to bite down on her bottom lip to keep from laughing. “But… I thought we were all going to Paris this summer.”

“Mother… I really need something different,” she tries to explain even though she doesn’t know if she can. She isn’t sure that even she fully understands it.

Eleanor stares at her for a moment and Blair holds her breath. “You’re already so different, Blair,” she says, standing up, coming to her and Blair tilts her chin up so their matching dark brown eyes could meet. There is a moment of silence and then Eleanor sighs. “Texas?” She says again and Blair laughs.


Glee

‘Cause You’ve Got An Awfully Long Way To Go by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch Puck/Kurt, Finn/Kurt, PG-13

“Or be banged by Finn, whatever, I don’t know what gets you off,” Puck shrugs, “I mean, you look like you bottom, but-”

“Oh my God,” Kurt says helplessly and it sort of comes out as a whimper. He must still be asleep, this cannot possibly actually be happening. Puck cornering him by his locker and discussing his sexual preferences is just too unlikely and ridiculous, even after all the other weird shit that’s gone down recently.

“Hey,” Puck says, “for all I know you get all animalistic and bossy in bed and that’s cool too, you know, if you want to top the shit out of Finn. I kind of doubt it ‘cause you’re carrying a girl’s purse and also you make that chick in Legally Blonde look manly, but whatever works for you, I guess.”


Iron Man

Concession by [livejournal.com profile] obsession_inc Gen. Incredible what-if fic. Pepper Potts [and Tony Stark] have disappeared and Christine Everhart, Vanity Fair reporter investigates

There are thousands of available pictures of Pepper Potts and she is out of focus in every one of them. Every one features some combination of Tony Stark, weapons manufacturing mogul, foreground; Virginia Potts, personal assistant, background. If it wasn't so infuriating, it would be damn near poetic. Christine resigns herself to having to request Pepper’s employee badge photo from Stark Industries, fighting their (understandably less-than-forthcoming) H.R. department for a picture that will end up looking more than a little bit like a mug shot. Which, under the circumstances, is a tasteless bit of irony that Christine could do without, regardless of her editor's opinion to the contrary.

Star Trek

A Member of the Nightshade Family** [livejournal.com profile] savoytruffle Adult. Mirror!verse. Spock has a plan for dealing with the new captain. McCoy agrees to take one for the team. Kirk hasn’t quite learned the meaning of “too good to be true.”

“I’ll bet he has…” McCoy skims through Kirk’s file, shaking his head as he goes. “So, this…kid fucks a paraplegic a few times and calls him ‘Daddy’ and he gets command of the flagship?”

“Positions in the Empire have been awarded on less logical bases.”

“Ain’t that the truth.”

“It would hardly be in my interest to construct a strategy based on falsehoods,” Spock notes. “And this conversation would proceed more quickly were you to curb your habitual use of redundant human idioms.”

McCoy rolls his eyes. “This conversation would proceed more quickly if you’d stop using three times as many words as you need to make your goddamn point, but you don’t see me holding my breath, now do you?”

Spock raises an eyebrow. “I will assume that question is rhetorical.”


The Vampire Diaries

Buddy Ficlet!! by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat

At least he was here, with her, instead of trying to fend off five werewolves all by himself. Elena wondered if it was something about being over a hundred years old, or at least about not growing up with the macho ideal so many guys her age seemed to obsess over: when Damon looked at a situation that he couldn’t handle, he actually showed some realism.

Well, sometimes.



But It Can Be Won by [livejournal.com profile] silviakundera Stefan/Elena/Damon OT3
The first time Elena Gilbert thinks she fell in love was a wince-bright sunny day. The memory is vivid, stained glass clear:

The grass smells freshly cut and the necklace he fastened is warm from the sun (but she’d thought it was his palms, so large when they’d settled on her shoulders). It singes the front of her throat as she smiles at him. He is so mysterious and new, and she likes that, likes the impossibly perfect way his mouth fits over hers. He said he wanted her to have this.

It's nothing like Matt and his sandbox, stole-your-toys grin. It's like running away from home, convertible top down, the wind in your hair.

He thanks her for pushing him; she’d always wanted to push somebody.

oh, this is it, she hums in her head. this is what I’ve been waiting for.

**

She’s wrong.


The Quick brown Fox by [livejournal.com profile] entangled_now Damon/Alaric NC-17

He's careful not to slice into the skin because Alaric is already a heady combination of sex and rage and guilt, and adding blood to that would be too much like chumming the water.

Damon only has so much self-control after all.

“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

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.

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?”

Fast and Furious

land meets water meets sky by Carla. Beautiful Letty fic. Letty scoops up a handful of sand; it dribbles through her fingers, chafing her skin as it falls. It should be so easy to release her thoughts. Usually she can; she’ll tip back a beer and stand with her feet shoulder-width apart and smirk in the light of the bonfires. She’ll shove Dom up against one of the cars, their bodies tight together, and she’ll swallow the past in their kisses.

Gossip Girl

A Little Pomp and Circumstance Blair/Dan PG-13 My not so secret fandom shame. If Chuck was a puzzle – an enigma – then Dan is a straight line.

It was just one kiss in that café in New Haven the summer after graduation, the smell of coffee in his hair. But she remembers how his hands dropped to her waist so that she could hold his face, how he tilted his head to welcome the press of her nose against his cheek. He kissed her like it was the first time he had kissed anyone, with the wonder of a pianist learning a score, his mouth and tongue and fingers pouring over her with nothing but reverence and adoration.

And she felt the shift. Heard the scratch of a line being drawn behind them, separating then from now. As though her past was something she could discard like a too-tight pair of shoes at the end of the evening. As though her future wasn’t a red carpet that had unfurled in front of her the moment she was born; she could do whatever she liked with it.

So if Chuck stood in her way, then Dan stepped aside to let her stand next to him.


These Things She Keeps Behind Her Eyes by [livejournal.com profile] kymess_jr Serena/Blair, Serena/Georgina, Serena/Nate, Serena/Random Guys, hinted at Serena/Chuck. Dark and what I believe realistic look at the characters pre-series. By the time Serena and her guy (ugh.) sit next to the other two, Georgina is already snorting up two lines. Two more lines, cut perfectly, stare up at Serena. It’s kinda hard to see them, the white powder on the white coffee table, but Serena knows they are there, she knew they would be even before she sat down.

Serena grabs the rolled up hundred-dollar bill—‘cause it’s always a hundred—from Georgie’s fingers. Within two seconds, she is feeling the sting. And it’s not like the first time; it never is. That first time when Georgie told her it would be the best rush she ever felt, better than any orgasm, and fuck was she right. That first time in the cramped washroom stall with impatient club-goers banging on the door, and Svetlana squeezing her throat slightly as she ran her tongue along Savannah’s jaw before handing her the hundred to use as a straw.

No, it’s not like that. But it’s getting the job done, and Serena is so caught up in it she doesn’t notice the hands fumbling along her body or the lips scraping along the column of her neck, rushing to her mouth. She just lets herself get caught up in all the sensations, lets it wash over her skin.

A mixture of tingles and rough strokes replace her thoughts. It’s nice; there’s a distinct, familiar pleasure in losing herself in movements—the movements of his fingers; their tongues; her blood.

But tonight there is something else. The pleasure is there, kind of, and then gone as fast. She’s left empty (maybe emptier?). She can feel his hand slide under the hem of her skirt and dart at an awkward angle under the elastic of her underwear. And fingertips brush in a way that makes her moan, but not because of the reasons it should. She moans, Serena realizes, because she has become aware of what she is doing, of what she is expecting to happen. She is moaning into his mouth because it is an integral piece of pretending to be Savannah the innocent southern girl who gets fucked by strange men.

He envies the power of his superiors, but he does not yet know what it means to yield to that power. His condition necessitates that he be taught to subject himself to those more powerful, and by extension, yourself."

Draco's mind latched onto the word "arrogance" and he fought the urge to clench his fists. Belatedly, he tried to work through the muddle of words.

The Dark Lord chuckled and Draco was struck with a horrible suspicion that some insinuation in Snape's words had eluded him.

"How intriguing." The Dark Lord chuckled again as if he couldn't contain himself. "Intriguing, indeed, Severus. Am I to assume you would like to be the one on whom these responsibilities are bestowed?"

NC17.

If you haven't read this and you like Castiel you're missing a fabulous treat.

I fell in love in Hell, and it is simply so distressing by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat Dean/Castiel R Castiel tilts his head. “When will I earn your trust, Dean? Will you require me to Fall?”

Dean struggles in silence for a minute. It is nothing for Castiel to wait, but Dean’s face is tight with discomfort. He blinks rapidly and his mouth twitches, half-formed protests discarded before they can be spoken. Even when he tries to close himself off, Dean is so open. His brother considers it a weakness, which is perhaps the primary reason that Castiel does not expect this cycle to end well for Sam. At last, Dean sighs. “You told me how to save Sam from Lilith. I—I appreciate that.”

Castiel shifts his weight, coming half a step closer. “Is that all that you feel for me?”

And Dean’s earlier shock is a faded echo of his stunned expression now, as if Castiel has knocked his world flat and built it up into a completely new configuration.

Castiel is going to have to do the hard work here. It is not work to which he is accustomed, but he has an idea of what is necessary. “I would like very much to know that you … return my regard.”

“I assure you that this was not my idea.”

She closed her eyes briefly. “I see.”

“Do you, now?”

“Still,” she began again, at full strength, “In the event that you were to survive…I would want some assurances.”

“Ha,” Snape spat. “So now you show your true colors. A monetary amount, I assume? How many galleons, Miss Granger, would it take to buy your soul?”

“That’s disgusting,” Hermione said quietly. “Neither my soul nor my life are for sale. If I chose to marry you, Professor Snape, I would want assurances that both would remain my own.”

“As I have no use for either, I don’t see where that would be a problem.”

“And would you…would you want an heir?”

Snape stared at her, disbelief drawn in broad strokes across his face. “Do you take me for a rapist? I assure you that I have as little use for your body as I do your soul.”

“So we would not be required to--”

“Absolutely not.”

“Severus,” Dumbledore began.

“What?” he snapped.

“You know that to bind this marriage, to prevent annulment in the instance that someone were to discover it--”

“No, Albus. No. I would rather be kissed by Dementors.”

Faint Heart Never Won Fair Lady by [livejournal.com profile] hackthis PG-13 Parker/Maggie, Eliot/Hardison

"I'm going to ask Maggie out," Parker announces during lunch, which is mostly a loaf of bread and a jar of jelly. She doesn't like peanut butter much.

Eliot looks up from whatever's he's doing that's annoying Hardison. Parker knows Hardison's annoyed because his mouth is twitching, and he keeps glaring at Eliot over his sports drink like he wants to fuck him or kick him in the head and he can't decide which one to do first.


It's All So Clear To Me Now by [livejournal.com profile] fools_game

The first time she fell asleep at Hardison’s she woke up scared out of her brain and nearly took Eliot’s eye when he came to wake her. Because she’d fallen asleep on the couch, and when she woke up she was in an unfamiliar bed, under the blankets, with no shoes on. She’d fallen asleep with other people around. They’d moved her while she slept, and she hadn’t noticed, hadn’t even stirred, and she freaked so hard she was fleeing through the lobby before she realised she was barefoot, and then she had to go back up to get her shoes. Alec gave her coffee as she walked gingerly back in, and there was an omelette waiting for her, and Eliot was hardly smirking at all, so she stayed for breakfast.

Parker giggles from the other room.

"Tell me that's not disturbing," Eliot hisses.

"Okay, it's disturbing," says Hardison. "But she knows what she's doing!"

"How do you know?"

There's no reason why someone who weighed, at most, 120 pounds – and that was soaking wet and wearing a climbing harness - should have made him jumpy. So he didn't jump, quite, when she came out of fucking nowhere, and said, "Eliot. You sometimes have sex with women."

"Uh," he said, and then: "But... no, because y'see we work together and it's not that you're not attractive," and then his brain shorted out like that bad time with the guy who liked electricity in Shanghai, because Parker wasn't attractive. She was good-looking, sort of, but... no.

"Ha ha," she said politely. "Anyway, so, sometimes women must want to have sex with you, right? And you notice."


and

"Hardison helped me name them," she explained. Eliot very carefully did not wonder if she'd called him 'Hardison' all of last night.

"This one is Benjamin," she said, pointing at one who was looking off, unfocused, "and this one is Susan," the one Hardison was using as a posable action-figure, "and the black one is Grover."

Eliot couldn't help help asking. "Like the muppet?" He couldn't quite imagine kid-Parker watching Sunday morning TV in her pyjamas, eating Froot Loops, but she'd grown up in America, so she must have.

Parker looked at him like he was a new kind of idiot. "Like the thousand. They're mommy's little two-thousand and two dollars," she proclaimed. And Eliot had thought Parker in a relationship would be weird.

They pick up Suzie Costello in a tacky Italian restaurant that’s been blown to hell by alien robots; she’s covered in fettuccine and bits of her dead boyfriend, and cries all over Jack’s coat for a while in a detached sort of fashion before tidying herself up and asking a few too many pertinent questions. Jack asks Tosh what she thinks in a perfunctory sort of way – after all, she doesn’t need to know just yet that the only opinions that matter here are his – and she tells him she thinks Suzie seems sort of insane and does she even have the right skills to join Torchwood? Jack shrugs and phones in Suzie’s resignation for her, while Tosh makes disapproving noises in the background.

Dune

Conclusion of the Imperial Planetologist Liet Kines in life and death.

Contradictions. The scientist among the savages, save that the savages were his mother and brothers and wife and daughter, his people. (And also the people his father used, dispassionately, in his great Project, in the terraforming of an entire world.)

(The people he himself continued to use.)


This Harbour We have Never Known Chani character study

The sand slides through her fingers, and she watches the grains return, become indistinguishable against the backdrop of the desert. She is a desert creature, and she bites back her tears.


Gossip Girl

Vid


Into the Groove by Keewick. Blair Waldorf. There are a lot of vids on this page and all of them are awesome, but the Blair vid is divine.

Rome

Hereditas Damnosa NC-17 Octavian/Antony, Octavian/Maecenas

The problem with Maecenas is that he is both observant and insightful, and that you've told him too much. It seemed reasonable at the time. He would sit, silently listening, as you spoke of things you'd never spoke of before. Things you didn't even entirely understand yet, that had started coming together in your mind as your sister held you, and your mother walked away with her lover. Her lover who still had your blood on his knuckles.

RPF

Ed Westwick is Not a Repair Man

And because Ed is not the type to whisper catty things behind other people's backs when their faces are right there, the first thing he says to him is, "Amazingly lifelike. Where's the string I pull to make you talk?"

Chace doesn't get offended, he just smiles an even, bright, pretty smile and says, "You don't know the half of it, dude. I've got molded plastic BVDs where my dick should be."

Ed quickly realizes he may have miscalculated.


Sarah Connor Chronicles

For the Asking

"She will continue to try to separate us. That is a threat-"

"-to my security, I know, I know." John sighs. "How can she do that when we know about her now? It's not like she could take you down if she got loose." Cameron turns her stare back on John.

"You sometimes have unrealistic expectations of my abilities.

Gossip Girl

Do Right, But Not Right Now by [livejournal.com profile] mosca NC-17, Chuck/Dan How to seduce Chuck Bass, raise your GPA, and become a writer in under five days. WORLDS of awesome ::draws hearts::

Passport Smiles by [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42 Rish, Blair/Chuck. This is something I can see. No excuses, Blair and Chuck are exactly who/how they are.

Harry Potter

Lessons by [livejournal.com profile] entrenous88 Charlie/Draco NC-17. A favorite pairing of mine, for sure, but this is extra nice. Short, hot, dragon reserve fic. d/sish themes
turnonmyheels: (Recs:  B)
Thank you [livejournal.com profile] essene for the very sexy icon. *mwah*

::cracks knuckles:: I've got a *lot* for you today. Huzzah!

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.

Vid

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.



Harry Potter

The Train to Hogwarts by Humantales. Gen. A Next-Gen sorting fic. ::flaps hands:: SO CUTE OMG!! Rose, Albus Severus, Scorpius

Smallville

Vid


Intergalactic by [livejournal.com profile] bananainpyjamas Clark/Lex The song is a mash up of Intergalactic Planetary by the Beastie Boys and the theme song from Veronica Mars We Used to be Friends by the Dandy Warhols. The song couldn't be more perfect and the storyline is flawless.

Torchwood

The Quiet Room by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller R Couplings: (please to note that not all of these are ships) Gwen/Owen, Ianto/Tosh, Ianto/Jack, Ianto/Gwen/Jack "Inside this room, no one talks," Ianto said, his voice carefully neutral. "It isn't allowed. What goes on here stays here and, outside of it, never happened. Other than that there are no rules, in a manner of speaking."

melancholy, achy, and beautiful
turnonmyheels: (GG Blair/Serena #1 kiss)
Not a lot of recs. I looked back yesterday and realized that my weekly recs slowly changed to bi-weekly and then spaced out further to once a month. I almost didn't rec today but I've made recs at least once a month going on a few years now and didn't want to break my streak.

CWRPS

The harder you come, the further you fall by [livejournal.com profile] moosesal NC-17 Sophia Bush/Chad Michael Murray, guest appearance by Jared Padalecki. Warning: Het? Pegging, ass-to-mouth, dirtytalk. Oh wait, some of us don't think of those as warnings ... *g* Sal says Possibly the dirtiest thing I've ever written. I'm kinda proud of that.

She should be.

Gossip Girl

Judge Not by [livejournal.com profile] bigboobedcanuck NC-17 but at its heart it's Chuck/Eric friendship.

Perfectly Chuck. And Eric. But most especially perfect Chuck

Gone With the Wind

No Gentlemen by [livejournal.com profile] solvent90 Adult. Rhett Butler/Ashley Wilkes. \o/\o/\o/ *seriously*

Harry Potter

Three Heroes by [livejournal.com profile] nishizono R Severus Snape/Draco Malfoy. *perfect*

"I always thought your hands would be cold," Draco whispered, bowing his head. The back of his neck was dotted with fine white hairs that shone like strands of glass in the lamplight. And Severus understood, for the first time in his life, what it felt like to be utterly seduced.

Torchwood

Acquaint Me With Your Fuck-Ups by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch PG-13 Ianto, Suzie & everyone else [Jack/Suzie, Owen/Suzie, Ianto/Lisa, slight Jack/Ianto]. Suzie schemes to get Ianto hired.

This is the closest to a perfect Suzie voice that I have read. The character insights are spot-on, the fic is dark like Torchwood should always be, and absurd like Torchwood always is.




I need a new icon for reccing. ::anime eyes::
turnonmyheels: (Torchwood Ianto #2 grin)
Angel/Buffy

Fragments in Hard Voyages by Lynne Mature: Spike/Angel, Spike/Buffy, Buffy/Angel. More Insect!Verse. One of the best S/B, A/B resolutions I've read. Very true to Buffy and who [what] she is. Awesome Dawn

Three Hundred Sixty-Six Degrees by [livejournal.com profile] stoney321 R Spike/Dru Skip through history with Spike and Dru always right in the middle of the scene of the times. Awesome!

Gossip Girl

Beaten Paths by [livejournal.com profile] abvj PG-15 There are some things you just can't ever forget. Or twelve things you didn't know about Blair Waldorf. 12 short vignettes that capture the essence of Blair.


CW RPS
Gossip Girl


American English by [livejournal.com profile] iridescentglow R Ed Westwick/Chace Crawford. "Do you have fuck buddies in England?" Chace asked. How Ed Westwick went from being an average kid from Stevenage to being a notch on Chace Crawford's bedpost.

Dude!! AWESOME FIC \o/\o/\o/

J2

Veterans of the Psychic Wars by [livejournal.com profile] kalireynn and [livejournal.com profile] kellwyntar

OMG. Where to start? The world building in this J2 Big Bang fic (my favorite of all the one's I've read) will make you bow down. Seriously. Also? That thing I swore I wouldn't talk discuss about how much J2 fic annoys me? NOT IN THIS FIC \o/\o/\o/ which is *why* it's the only one getting recommended.

The More You Pay by [livejournal.com profile] cluegirl Gorgeous Draco.

Iron Man

The Kids Aren’t All Right by [livejournal.com profile] samdonne

Journalism style story about the man behind the suit. meticulous. engaging. brilliant.

Stargate Atlantis

My Home and Native Land by [livejournal.com profile] copperbadge PG Gen; a little McKay/Sheppard on the side, but that's about it.
Summary: Ronon's friendship with Chuck, the head Gate Tech of the Atlantis mission, leads him to discover the strange and alien ways of Canadians and helps him lay his past to rest.


Charming Ronon gen fic which celebrates all things Canadian. It's a great read, but maybe I just appreciate it so much because of my recent love affair with Canada?


Torchwood

Lick Your Own Wounds by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch PG. Martha [Owen]; Jack, Ianto, Mickey, Gwen. Painful, achy, and bleak. just like Torchwood ought to be.
turnonmyheels: (Torchwood #1)
Buffy

The Substitute by [livejournal.com profile] snowpuppies PG Buffy/Faith 300 perfect words. I ache for Faith. Always.

Firefly

Like Describing the Alphabet by [livejournal.com profile] mosca NC-17 Mal/Jayne Completely in character. Perfectly executed. Totally organic. And the voices. goh shu (I made that up, I have no idea if it's the right phrase or not) the voices. This is fic to be *savored*

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.

Iron Man, movie

A Small and 100% Innocent Token of Gratitude by [livejournal.com profile] svilleficrecs NC-17, Tony/Pepper Lovely fic, banter is *just* right, plus toe-sucking!!

Real People Fiction, BBC

Close Your Eyes and Think of England by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller PG. David Tenant discovers fanfic. After he recovers, John Barrowman and Gareth David Lloyd introduce him to RPS. His head just *might* explode.

Torchwood

Flipping With A Coin That’s Got A Tail On Either Side by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch PG-13 Gen/Het Owen/Martha, Owen, Martha Owen and Martha keep in touch. Sad, gorgeous fic, with phenomenal dialog
turnonmyheels: (GG #1)
Being Human

Precious, vid by [livejournal.com profile] angelmoogle. Not especially stylistic or flashy, but with only one episode, there's not a lot of source material. The lyrics work and it's nice to see Mitchell anyway I can get him. If you're thinking about torrenting the episode but are wavering, give this a looksee.

Dark Angel

Standing the Heat by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay Alec/Logan NC-17. Alec goes into heat. Yes, it's a fandom cliche, who cares? Very yummy fic.

Gossip Girl

The Wake Up Toast by [livejournal.com profile] them0rgue Eric, mild Eric/Asher. My favorite fic in the fandom, hands down

The first thing they make him do in the Ostroff Center is write down, in his own words and handwriting, exactly what happened. What he did, what he said and felt. Everything. The further he gets from the Event, his therapist—“Call me Rebecca,” she says, looking him straight in the eye—tells him, the less clearly he’ll remember it.

Eric gets as far as It was a dark and stormy night before he runs out of steam.

Instead he makes a bulleted list. Went to the bathroom. Turned on the shower. Sat down in the shower. Cut lengthwise down the wrist. Waited.

His therapist reads it in silence before looking up at him. “This is good, Eric,” she says gently, “but we’re really interested your feelings.”

He doesn’t know how to say that he’s not sure he has any.


and



When Eric turned thirteen, he spent the night curled in an unforgiving hospital chair while they pumped Serena’s stomach and hooked her up to an IV. Their mom was there, kind of, pacing in and out of the waiting room, on the phone with their dad, speaking in hushed tones or getting watery burned coffee from the mess.

They weren’t alone. There were other pinched, desperate-looking families glancng up hopefully whenever someone passed through. He remembers thinking that this was where you waited around for people to die. Another mother sat directly across from him with a son, a little boy asleep in one of those wrap-around papoose carriers. She never looked up when someone came in, just scratched into a Times crossword with heavy bags under her eyes.

Rebecca nods when he relates this story but doesn’t write anything down. “Do you think about her a lot?”

Eric nods, then processes the question and shakes his head. “No. The baby.”

“Why the baby?”

He pushes a fingernail under his bandages. He doesn’t really remember wanting to die. More like he just wanted to calm down. “I just thought it would be nice to be able to sleep through all that.”


Really, really amazing read.


RPS

This One Time at Band Camp by [livejournal.com profile] hackthis Ari Gold/Robert Downey Jr., PG-13. The on-going adventures of Ari Gold. Wonderful fun, funny, smart read.

Smallville

Paranoid Android, vid by [livejournal.com profile] bop_radar Lex character study, includes footage for all of season 7. This vid can be summed up in two words.

Fucking. Stunning.

If you have ever for one second of you life had a passing curiosity about Lex Luthor, you must watch this vid. Then watch it a couple more times, because it is perfection.
turnonmyheels: (Torchwood #1)
DC

Not Titled by [livejournal.com profile] romanyg SV/DCU Batman/Superman, Bruce/Clark. Adult. My notes on this fic are: Batman isn't stable. Neither is Bruce. I don't think a lot of people really get Bruce's psychosis and Romany does. This isn't a comfortable read but it's well-worth it.

Gossip Girl

No fic, sorry but an interesting article and some Chuck Bass and his questionable fashion choices picspam.

How GG is changing the way we watch TV

Chuck Bass picspam from ep 1.14, The Blair Bitch Project

Torchwood

Body Language by [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing A writer I have missed a lot since I more or less quit reading SPN fic. Here Lyra's written a Jack/Ianto/John PWP which is steamy, steamy, goodness. It starts like this Any day that ended in an orgy was a good day, in John's opinion. Oh, sure, the day had started out really fucking boring, with Jack's team of do-gooders nattering on and on and on about the Rift and the end of the world and all that. A broken audio loop, playing the same tired song. But considering more recent events, John's side excursion to Earth was shaping up very nicely indeed.

And only gets better.

For Your Own Good by [livejournal.com profile] poisontaster. Major spoilers for Exit Wounds, wonderful [in my very biased opinion] look at Ianto.

I Nothing But To Please His Fantasy by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch Jack/John NC-17 dark!fic set during the time loop. Warnings: Mild spoilers for 2x01 and 2x05, smut, bondage, violence, non-con, torture, and a slightly creepy Jack/Gray implication that crept in around the edges. You’ve been warned.
Summary: What he calls you isn’t your name.
A look at how bad Jack really could have been.
