Burn Notice/Supernatural


Smoke On the Water by [livejournal.com profile] ratherastory Gen.

Whoever these two guys were, they weren't FBI. They were doing a pretty convincing imitation of Feds, but there was something about the way the two of them moved that belied the act. They moved in synch with each other, which pointed to a long-standing partnership, but if they were Bureau then they wouldn't have been together for more than a year, maybe two at most, and that wasn't nearly enough to account for the unspoken communication I could feel coming off them. Besides, the FBI isn't in the habit of pairing up new agents: it's one rookie and one experienced agent, to prevent screw-ups.

It was Page who gave them away, although I doubt anyone other than a trained operative would have spotted it. Plant was the decoy, all swagger and good looks and loud-mouthed questions, but Page was sizing up the room, sizing me up, and within about ten seconds I saw he'd planned all their escape routes and spotted the pistol I was carrying.


Fake!RPS/Merlin

Pairing Pendragon/Merlin meta-fic, *hysterical* and quite moving too. 80K. Merlin pursed his lips. It was a lot, but he’d read White (fuck he loved White) and it wasn’t like he was actually going to do his coursework. Well, he’d do enough, but the lure of fic was way too much. And it was technically practise. Can’t do a degree in editing without editing something, and he’d much rather edit the sexy adventures of his fictional namesake than his actual Uni work, which had rather different mistakes, a lot less romance, and definitely no porn.

He dismissed the idea that he was ignoring Pendragon’s comment (and if he could surround it in little hearts, he would. He’d already screencapped it for posterity.). He wasn’t avoiding, or ignoring, or anything else -ing. He was participating (shit, that was an -ing) in fandom. And meeting people. And stopping being such an NNF that he got seven responses to anything he posted if he was lucky. Guinevere80 wrote hot knights slash and got a decent comment count; he was fortunate

Fringe

13 Ways of Looking at a Betrayal by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat Olivia, Olivia/Peter. I bet you I've read this half a dozen times already. "Liv," her sister says, and Olivia closes her eyes, wishing that she could cross the distance between Boston and Chicago as easily as she can (now) swap realities. "Are you trying to excuse him, or condemn him?"

Rachel only vaguely understands what's happening, but she seems to have accepted 'identical replacement' for now.

Olivia sighs. "A little bit of both?" she says, missing the old telephone cords that you could twist during your uncomfortable conversations. "Anyway, I should go. Give Ella my love."

"Always," Rachel says.


Harry Potter

The Best Revenge by Arsinoe de Blassenville Teen. Gen. One of the most enjoyable HP fics I've read in years. The author goes right back to the beginning and asks the question, 'what would have happened if Snape saw Harry's Hogwarts letter addressed to the cupboard under the stairs. In this fic, Harry is HAPPY. Adults take care of children. The Heads of House are intelligent, witty, capable, and AWESOME.


A Muggle-born Magic Draco/Hermione Regency AU. Hermione Granger finds herself in need of a way to pay off her father's debts after his death. Draco Malfoy, retired from the politics of the Isolationists, a group of pure-bloods bent on separating 'true' magic from lesser folk, finds himself in need of a tutor for his son, Scorpius, who appears to be incapable of magic and must learn to survive in a world without it. Draco also needs a wife and mother for Scorpius, to satisfy a promise to his unwell father. After she saves his son from an attack by Isolationists, Draco hires the Muggle-born Miss Granger for the former, and after a riot in Vauxhall Gardens and a scandalous discovery made by his mother, weds that selfsame Muggle-born for the latter. While making the best of her marriage of (in)convenience, Hermione discovers that Scorpius' history of wild imaginings and dreams is more than just imagination.
Luther

Single White Female Alice Alice lived at home during university and grad school. Her parents weren’t as smart as her, but they weren’t stupid enough to let their child live with a bunch of coeds and no real adult supervision. So by the time she turned eighteen, Alice was desperate to get out. She found a flat and grad student to share it with and told her parents she was moving out. They could pay for it. Or they could pay for it. Their choice.

They chose to pay for it.



Make It Or Break It

by [livejournal.com profile] escritoireazul Also for me for Yuletide, also perfect. Emily, Payson, Gen. Sort of, Emily agrees, and she nods. But sort of, too, she thinks Payson is wrong. Because sometimes, what happens off the mat, that’s such a huge deal too. Like, she’s good and she’s getting better, but would she have been good enough for the Rock if she’d come out of another elite gym and not from the Y? How much of her story is the reason she’s here now, struggling to make the National Team? Can she really separate that from whatever talent she has?

Her story makes her Emily, and Emily is the one with that all-important skill. If it’s just about the moves, just about the technical skill, is Emily all important too?

Those thoughts make her head hurt. She puts them aside to deal with later.



RPS

The Doors of Time by [livejournal.com profile] felisbalnco Jensen/Jared ultimately NC-17. This is without a doubt, one of the finest AUs I have ever read, if not the best. The world building is truly astounding.

Sons of Anarchy

A Study of Courtly Love in Leather and Chrome by [livejournal.com profile] escritoireazul This was written for me for Yuletide. It is Tara and Tig and Courtly Love and it is perfect. Picture, if you will, the tableaux: The dark-haired beauty who will inherit the throne and rule beside her prince; all who cross her shall look on her and despair. Kneeling before her, head bowed, the knight who cannot bear to stand one moment more now that he has returned to his most beloved. Her hand, so delicate, outstretched to brush her fingertips against his hair.

She is no princess, this woman, but a doctor brave and true, and he no knight in shining armor.

Fic

Don't Hold It Against Me by [livejournal.com profile] smc_27 Adult. Caroline/Tyler "Stop avoiding me!" she hisses. He rolls his eyes like she's just the needy girl she was...until recently. "Tyler, this is..."

"Look, you saw me cry, okay?" he whispers, looking around to make sure no one can hear them. There's not even anyone else around. "It's not cool."

"It's fine!" She smiles and he narrows his eyes. "I cry all the time."

"You're a girl."

"So? Who cares? I just...I could...We could help each other." She shrugs one shoulder and looks at him, and he tilts his head and shakes it just slightly.

Yes, she's just given him the admittedly adorable look that has always, always gotten her her way.

"You're evil," he tells her. She actually laughs and he cracks a bit of a smile. "Fine. Whatever."

He walks away and she texts him before he's even at the end of the hall. She hears him whisper, "Goddamn," and laughs. When he turns to look at her, she just taps her ear and giggles when he looks totally confused.

She'll have to explain all that to him later.


The Fine Art of Poisoning by [livejournal.com profile] turnonmyheels NC-17 Damon/Katherine, Stefan/Katherine, Stefan/Katherine/Damon. In the Spring of 1864, Katherine Pierce poses as an orphan to gain entry to the Salvatore estate in Southern Virginia. She captivates the household with her beauty and charm. She has everyone under her thumb with one exception, Stefan Salvatore. Determined to seduce him without using compulsion, Katherine decides to use Stefan's only obvious weakness against him—his brother. Pitting the brothers against each other quickly becomes more than a game, turning into full-on obsession as Damon requires no compulsion and little seduction to corrupt his younger brother. As the triangle shifts and the body count rises, no one will remain unscathed.

Lame Ducks Don't Do Well as Parental Figures by [livejournal.com profile] badboy_fangirl. Jenna Sommers. The next time Jenna sees Andie, she's got this beautiful silk scarf tied around her neck in this abnormally stylish way and Damon Salvatore's hanging on her arm. Jenna gives herself a silent high five as she watches them nuzzling each other in a booth; that is until she turns around and sees the look on Elena's face.

Some days she'd rather be lame than parental at all, really. It's only on this day that she realizes she's both.


Like a Dog With a Bone by [livejournal.com profile] eenaangel PG-13 Caroline/Tyler “Tyler Lockwood is following me,” she says in lieu of a greeting, or an apology. She glares at Damon like this is his fault-because even though they get along a bit now, she still likes blaming shit on him. It’s easier than having to find the actual responsible party and it soothes her ego to slap him around when the memories of his abuse resurface and she’s trapped in a haze of anger and bloodlust.

Stefan and Damon share an ominous vampire look that must be something they inherited from their father, because she can never look that serious/frustrated/amused/worried without also looking constipated (so she’s trying out her vampire looks in the mirror-she doesn’t really need to sleep as much and sometimes she gets bored). Stefan wanders over to the windows, peers through the blinds, and then gives Damon a grave nod.

“And you led him here,” Damon rolls his eyes, but doesn’t lose that amused light in his eyes. “Thanks Blondie.”


No Claim On You by [livejournal.com profile] summerstorm Gen. Caroline Forbes This one time they're having coffee together outside, a couple of weeks into spring weather, and Bonnie says, "So how are you dealing with, you know, the cravings?"

She's halfway through a sip so that it looks almost casual, the way her voice is soft and she looks all concerned and stuff, so Caroline spouts off some crap about the tricks she's learned to quell her thirst when it gets dangerous, and thanks Bonnie for asking.

It's kind of awkward, because she doesn't want Bonnie to freak out or think Caroline thinks Bonnie supports vampirism as a rule now, which means she can't say what she actually means, which is Thanks for asking like you're concerned about how I'm doing instead of like you're a criminal profiler trying to predict a serial killer's next move.

But it's not glaringly obvious in a bad way, she doesn't think. She just points out that what she's saying is kind of personal, as an apology, but Bonnie reads it as an accusation and says, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to—"


Not Your Rosalie Hale by [livejournal.com profile] iphignia939 Gen. Caroline Forbes

”Because it was safer if you didn’t know,” Elena says.

”But I wasn’t,” Caroline says – not rude or anything, because she gets it, now. She still thinks people messing with her head, like, once a week is messed up, but there are some things you don’t remember and stay the same. Like that nurse at the hospital. No one wants to remember being someone else’s salad bar. “Damon used me like a salad bar that gave blowjobs, and there was this dark-haired lady, and Stefan made me forget that night when he slipped me vervain to mickey Damon. I wasn’t safer. I was just stupider.”

And oh, man, now Elena’s crying. “I’m sorry!” Caroline says, waving her hands. “I mean, I’m not, really, because I’m not wrong, but I’m sorry I said it that way—“

”No,” Elena says, sniffling. She wipes at her eyes. “You’re not wrong. And – it’s kind of nice, actually, to know you’re still you. Only Caroline Forbes could say that that way.”

“Well, duh.” She shrugs. “I’m still me. I’m just bitey.”


The Pitchfork Play (Not) Its Part Well by [livejournal.com profile] havocthecat PG. Liz Forbes The vervain clears its way out of Liz's system in three days.

Throw Yourself From Skin to Skin by [livejournal.com profile] turnonmyheels Adult. Damon screws (with) Mystic Falls, episode by episode. Damon is a vampire. There will be death, rape, torture, sex, bloodplay, etc.

“What do you think they’re talking about?” Alaric regretted the words as soon as they were out of his mouth. He’d known better than to make small talk with Damon since the moment he met him.

“I’m sure Isobel is all ‘My darling girl, I can’t believe I let you go. Please come closer so I can drink your blood.’” Damon rolled his eyes and stared at Alaric. “And then Elena says, ‘No! You can’t drink my blood, but I’d like to get to know you, you’re my mother after all.’”

Alaric leaned back against Damon’s car and kept his eyes on The Grill. “Forget I said anything.”

“Generally speaking, I can’t even remember you exist much less your inane excuse for banter.”

The absurdity of the statement forced a chuckle from Alaric. “You are so full of shit.” Damon huffed out a noncommittal sound. “Seriously, you’re always, ‘Let’s go kill something, teacher!’ You can’t keep your hands off my weapons, you stalk me through town at any given opportunity, and now that my not exactly dead vampire wife is in town you’re shadowing every step I make.”

Damon kept his eyes on the entrance to The Grill and didn’t speak.

“I think you like me.” Alaric didn’t bother to hide the dopey grin on his face. “I think you want to be” -- he nudged Damon with his elbow and clasped both hands together in front of his heart -- “friends.”

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.

He might need to call in some help. Good thing his best friend is an expert at both. Con is perfectly clueless and earnest.


Glee

Wonderwall by [livejournal.com profile] anomalousalanna R. Quinn/Rachel. I read this fic a while back while Sal and I were on the beach. I immediately recced it to her and by extension thought I had recced it to everyone else. Note to self, telling one person does not mean you ever told anyone else. This fic is perfect. Quinn gets kicked out and winds up living with Rachel and her dads.

“How did I go from head cheerleader to pregnant lesbian?” She asks the other girl thoughtfully.

“I must just be that good.”

Harry Potter
To Make a Wager by [livejournal.com profile] artemis_sparks Harry/Pansy, Draco/Harry light R. Draco and Pansy have been making bets since childhood. Now they can't seem to stop.

"But – But you're not Granger," he said earnestly. "You don't care about N.E.W.T.s. All you want after Hogwarts is to start your own line of nineteen-forties-themed cosmetics."

She shrugged noncommittally and devoted herself to eating her chicken.

Draco adored Pansy, but he didn't trust her one bit. She always had ulterior motives. So did he. It was why they were friends.

So, that night he resolved to follow her. Pansy went out nearly every night to meet some bloke or other. There was a solid chance that it was a bloke affecting her decision because the only thing Pansy took more seriously than boys was mascara.

“Commander Spock, we have located your son,” the Vulcan lady on the screen says, which would be great, except Jim can tell by the look on Spock’s face that he’s never heard of this kid before in his life. “If it is expedient, the child will be sent to join you on the Enterprise within the week.”

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.

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.

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?”

Warnings: In the interest of suspense, I don't give detailed warnings. Read at your own risk. Volume III: Desire and All the Sweet Pulsing Aches

February, 2002. As the situation in Postwar England becomes more dire, Harry becomes more unstable. The other Aurors are tasked with keeping him out of trouble, but the bulk of the work falls to Draco. How far is he willing to go to save Harry? How far will Harry push the situation? While they struggle to define their complex relationship, old secrets threaten their future and that of everyone close to them.

Harry Potter Crossover with Labyrinth

I Wish the Goblins Would Come by [livejournal.com profile] marginaliana. Gen

As Hermione read through it, her feelings of skepticism grew. When she got to the end, she tossed the book down on the table in disgust.

Pure snorkack dung, she thought. Goblin king. It's just like something Luna would make up. Anyway, if the goblins had a king, especially some super-powerful magical king, I don't see why they'd submit to the indignities that the Ministry has perpetrated on them.

She paused. Then again, her eyes were drawn back to the ornate cover of the book. There had been something utterly sincere about the text, a feature which she'd found to be rather characteristic of the most bizarre situations the wizarding world had to offer. Luna's been right about a couple of things. I suppose it might be true.

Counting the Steps to the Door of Your Heart by [livejournal.com profile] annella JA/JP, NC-17. The one where Jensen has the Dalek costume. SERIOUSLY funny.

Jensen keeps his Dalek costume in the corner of his room, next to the computer desk. He tells people it's there because it doesn't fit in his closet, or because the arms are useful for hanging stuff on, but the real reason is to test people out. He's still waiting for someone to see it and say, 'Cool, a Dalek costume!' instead of, 'what the hell is that?' but he's sure it will happen eventually. It's a truly awesome costume. Jensen had to have it custom-made, because most Dalek costumes are either completely lame or only available in children's sizes. But it was totally worth the extra expense, and it even has a voice modulator inside it so he can say EXTERMINATE with that awesome Dalek reverb.

Seven Sunday Mother-Daughter Mornings by [livejournal.com profile] hradzka Catherine and Savannah Weaver. Gen. Brilliant.

"They say you look really young." Her mother didn't change expression. Savannah hadn't expected her to. "Some of them wonder if it's plastic surgery. Botox injections. That new nano thing." Savannah hesitated, then plunged ahead, to make sure her mother understood. "They say it's like you haven't aged a day in ten years."

"I see," said Catherine.

"They're not looking for much," said Savannah. "Maybe some wrinkles around your eyes, your mouth. A couple of gray hairs. Stuff like that." She shrugged, and took a bite of omelet onto her fork. "I always say it's good genes."

"Maybe you'll have them, too, when you grow up."

"Maybe."

Lunch and Other Obscenities by [livejournal.com profile] rheanna27 PG-13. Nyota liked her roommate just fine until she met her. The main dish is Uhura & Gaila friendship, with a tasty side order of Spock/Uhura
"The light was green," Nyota said, aware that was a conversational non sequitur, but past the point of caring.

Gaila's hands went still as she seemed to realize, for the first time, that all was not completely well. "Well... yes."

"Green," Nyota repeated. "Did you want me to walk in on you having sex?"

"Not especially," Gaila said, sounding puzzled. She frowned. "Are you annoyed we didn't ask you to join us? You know, I would have, except I'm a little pushed for time tonight."

I fell in love in Hell, and it is simply so distressing by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat R. Dean/Castiel

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?”

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.

Riddles and Rhymes by [livejournal.com profile] bewarethesmirk Snape/Draco, NC-17 "I believe Draco suffers from bloated arrogance. 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?"


Supernatural

The Consequences of Falling by [livejournal.com profile] pandarus A story in fifteen parts, in which the angel Castiel finds himself put in an untenable position, and consequentially loses his grace. In which he goes on a roadtrip with a demon, discovers the delights of tequila and french fries and pie, plays a starring role in a virgin sacrifice, is deflowered by his favourite Winchester, and then gets some very unpleasant news indeed. 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.”

“Not—not friends, exactly, but—allies.” He cocks his head to the side. “Do you want to be friends?”

“Absolutely not,” she asserts. “I would rather kill myself.”

“Good to know,” he murmurs.

“I’ll commit to this agreement on two conditions,” she tells him. He arches an eyebrow and she smiles slowly. “One, you never tell anyone that I willingly converse with you.” He rolls his eyes but doesn’t interrupt. “Two, you let me read some of these stories that Serena is always raving about.”

Second Life by Lariope Adult. Hermione/Snape. AU from HBP.

“Miss Granger,” Snape said slowly, “Do you actually expect that I would agree to…marry you…if I thought I would live through the war?”

She stared back at him, unwilling to back down. “If you are so convinced that you won’t survive, why even put this plan into place?”

“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.

"She's high," says Eliot.

"She's hitting on us," counters Hardison.

"Man, it's like date rape."

"No, it's not! Cuz she's raping us! Or, you know, she would be, if you let me go back in there."

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?"

"Because I was a really good boy this year and asked Santa!"

"Tell me you did not ask Santa to get Parker high enough to sleep with you."

The Underwire Job by [livejournal.com profile] brown_betty and [livejournal.com profile] emeraldwoman and its sequel The Cat Burglar Job

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.

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.

::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.

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.

Dark Angel

The Hubbert Peak by [livejournal.com profile] musesfool Dark Angel; Max/Alec; adult She moans and bucks up against him, desperate to be tasted, to be fucked, so hot and wet for it, he can pretend it's for him and not just biology fucking them both.

Friday Night Lights

Get Your Freak On by [livejournal.com profile] devilc. NC-17. Tim/Jean [that's girl Landry for those casual fans] fun, flirty, well characterized, and smutty. yay! [why isn't there more smut in the FNL fandom? It perplexes me]

Harry Potter

The Man Who Lived by [livejournal.com profile] chase820 and [livejournal.com profile] mustangsally78 January, 2002. Draco Malfoy is recalled from exile to a magic-starved Great Britain overrun by monsters. His work would be hard enough, even without a dodgy boss and meddling American aurors keeping things stirred up. And if the job doesn't kill him, Draco's new flatmate--a vastly changed Harry Potter--will almost certainly try. But Harry is not the only one who has changed. Some of the best family history fanon and OCs I've come across in the fandom. They're diligently working on Volume 2.

Stargate Atlantis

Hero for a New Age by [livejournal.com profile] smittywing. Gen. Ronon, Rodney, and comic books. Really, seriously, awesome. Long, fun, feelgood read.

Crossover, Stargate Atlantis/Torchwood

A Ring in the Black Sea by [livejournal.com profile] basingstroke NC-17, The Torchwood/SGA crossover is a new favorite of mine. In this one, Teyla selects her baby-daddy. Love the take on Pegasus Galaxy natives.

Torchwood

A Soft Spot for Apocalyptic Fuck-Ups by [livejournal.com profile] julad Immediate aftermath of Cyberwoman, Jack cleans up the mess

Among the porcelain, among some talk of you and me by [livejournal.com profile] scribblinlenore R Jack/Ianto Jack and Ianto drink tea together. Past and present. The very distant future. Bring your tissues.

And, Yet by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller PG Ianto/Lisa, Ianto/Tosh, Ianto/Jack, Ianto/Rose. Three ways that things were; three ways that things could have been. Extremely moving.

An Illustrated Life by [livejournal.com profile] overchay Fanart and fanfic. Basically, a slow day at the Torchwood Three hub comprised of notes, memos, instant messages, and other form of textual communication. This is just the first story of, hopefully, many to come.

But One Man Loved The Pilgrim Soul In You by [livejournal.com profile] lannamichaels PG-13 Ianto does not believe in: guilt, god, morality, shame, or letting Jack fuck him on a bed. He sees no reason to pretend to be normal. Excellent character study

Cinephile by [livejournal.com profile] nightanddaze NC-17 Jack/Ianto The dark of the cinema is special for Ianto This takes its cue from 02.10 From Out of the Rain but isn't spoilery at all. Really, I was just captivated by the way Ianto looked like he was going to cream his trousers in the beginning of the episode. *excellent*

Loneliness by [livejournal.com profile] notevery NC-17 Ianto/Tosh, And that’s okay, she knows, pressing the back of her hand to her lips to stifle a moan as he kisses lower, lower – imperfect is okay, as long as it does not mean alone.

Of All Trades by [livejournal.com profile] kita0610 NC-17 Ianto/Tosh, Ianto/Gwen, Ianto/John Hart, Ianto/Owen and of course, Ianto/Jack. Ianto is one his knees I like him there *g*

Restraint by [livejournal.com profile] ninjasnano PG Tosh, Ianto Ianto is good at tying knots; Tosh is good at untying them. Down in the semi-darkness of the Hub's lower levels, with rope and a stopwatch, they practice methods of escape.

Myfanwy's Song by [livejournal.com profile] sister_luke Gen. I'm a sucker for Myfanwy fic, this is beautiful and devastating.

spoilers for make me a supermodel )

Those people who tricked me into watching Supermodel will be amused to find out I'm recording the dance show that's taking its time slot and I am going to be *all* over the show that starts next week: WorkOut. Bravo, you may lead me into turning on my TV more than once a week. Yay?
turnonmyheels: (Torchwood #1)
I seem to have fallen head first into a new fandom. YAY!! New characters to discover! New fic! New authors! Meanwhile, I deleted my old delicious account and created a new one which can be found here.

The Breakfast Club

A Lobotomy and Some Tights by Shrift. Brian/Bender NC-17 for sex and drug use Brian and Bender. The lamp, a bong, and Brian really isn't as innocent as he seems even if he hasn't made it with a girl.

Firefly

Different for Girls by [livejournal.com profile] mosca Zoe/Wash, Kaylee. Set at least a year before the pilot episode. Excellent Zoe voice.

Harry Potter

Art


Trust me, just feel (love me) Artist Anon for now. NSFW!! Charlie Weasley/Draco Malfoy. Rimming. Bondage. Blindfold. Tattoo. What's not to love?

Crossover: Sarah Connor Chronicles/Supernatural

Not With a Bang, but With a Whimper by [livejournal.com profile] devilc Derek/Dean. Adult. t's the car that draws his attention to the two guys renting the house next door.

Low-tech. 100% microchip free. Sleek. Black. Dangerous looking.

Sex on wheels.

(Derek loves that car from the moment he first sees it. Which won't happen for a few years, yet, in a manner of speaking.)

So, when it pulls in to the drive and they get out, Derek's knees buckle from the shock of recognition.


and its follow up: Part 2

Sarah Connor Chronicles

Under the City Lies a Heart Made of Ground by [livejournal.com profile] hackthis John, Derek (vague John/Derek) Guns, tattoos, inexplicable compatibility between moms and terminators. It really is a shame that season 1 ended right when the fandom started taking off. I keep hoping for more fic soon, but it doesn't look like that's happening.


Tombstone

Blood and Whiskey by [livejournal.com profile] astolat Wyatt POV. Lovely tone, great voices, you can hear the rhythm of Doc's voice.

Torchwood

As We Mean To Go On by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch Owen/Ianto PG-13 Owen is feeling charitable enough to last four hours before going to Jack and telling him to fire the new guy.

Brothers in Arms by [livejournal.com profile] ninjasnano Ianto, Owen. Humor. "And we both know who's going to have to keep you in brains," Ianto said. His eyes met Owen's, and they snickered. "We've got all those cadavers, though... think you can cope with frozen? Or does it need to be fresh?"

Confessions by [livejournal.com profile] out_there PG-13. Jack talks to his team after the cannibals, everyone has something to confess, except Ianto. Pre-their screwing around.

First Date by [livejournal.com profile] derryderrydown Jack/Ianto, NC-17. Hysterical. No really, I mean it, it's hilarious. Hot.

Dresser by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller Jack/Ianto PG-13 The first time Ianto does it, Jack is startled. Ianto's not exactly one to touch other people voluntarily, doesn't even seem to like to be touched without warning, though his skittishness is more understandable after Lisa. But as Jack rises to follow the others out, Ianto takes down his coat as if he's done it all his life and steps into position and Jack remembers this, his muscles remember and before he can notice what's happening he's moved in front of him and put his arms back, and Ianto has slipped the coat over his shoulders and tugged slightly to settle it.

He turns, gives Ianto a look neither one of them know how to interpret, and then bolts for the door after the others.


Getting to Yes by [livejournal.com profile] technosage Jack/Ianto, mentions of past Ianto/Lisa NC-17
Warnings: Abuse of office furniture. Ianto-esque naming conventions. Boys that won't stop shagging. Now that they've settled into this pattern, how is he to tell Jack that, in all fairness, he thinks Jack ought to let him have a go?

In Service by [livejournal.com profile] technosage Jack/Ianto NC-17 Warnings: Emergent D/s relationship. Delayed gratification. Abuse of stopwatch and probably British English. Dude. Stopwatch porn. What more could you want?

Nemo Me Impune Lacessit by [livejournal.com profile] derryderrydown Jack/Ianto R "You let Ianto fall into the Rift," Jack said, with a level of strained calm that had Owen edging towards the door. "Alright." He took a deep breath. "But you should know that nobody sleeps until we find him. And I'm probably going to fire you all." I love how even though Ianto has no idea who *he* is, he knows Jack.

Timewatching; or, Five Ways Ianto Jones Seduces Captain Jack Harkness by [livejournal.com profile] wildeststranger Jack/Ianto, NC-17. really excellent piece. Subtle and crafty much like Ianto

Twenty things to do in Cardiff when you're dead by [livejournal.com profile] phineyj exactly what the title says. excellent atmosphere, great character piece.

We Lied When We Said That We’d Aired All Our Grievances by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch Owen/Ianto [Jack/Ianto, Jack/Gwen] There's a prequel to this but this can be read alone. I love the voyeuristic aspect. It pleases me muchly. You should read all Paperclipbitch's entries marked Owen/Ianto because they are *divine*.

When The Pieces Fall Into Place by [livejournal.com profile] scribblinlenore Jack/Ianto, Jack/Ianto/Owen NC-17 Owen has a knack for puzzles, or maybe it's more a blinding obsession, but he can't solve Jack and Ianto. Great Owen POV. Not to mention *very* hot, Owen's imagination is a very naughty place to be.

Vid

Papa Don't Preach by [livejournal.com profile] fan_eunice and [livejournal.com profile] greensilver Remember in the pilot when Jack said he'd been pregnant before? Yeah. Hysterical.


Stargate: Atlantis

Twelve Things They (Will Someday) Say in the Pegasus Galaxy by [livejournal.com profile] minnow1212. Gen. This is a chilling read, think of it as the birth of Urban Legends in Pegasus. The Ronon and Teyla one's are especially intense.




*damn* that was a lot of coding.
