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.

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.

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

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.

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.

That Fragile Kind of Forever by [livejournal.com profile] hoosierbitch Riggins Brothers PG-13

And when they give him Tim, Billy wants to give him back. This isn’t the sweet, quiet kid he’d teased growing up. This kid is sullen, greasy, angry, and won’t look him in the eyes. This kid has bruises all the way up and back down the right side of his face, sick-yellow on the edges and still blue-black in the middle. And so okay maybe that’s not new.

She considers his words for a moment and then leans toward him. “Are you saying we should be friends, Brooklyn?”

“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.”


Harry Potter

Dumbledore's Army and the Year of Darkness by Thanfiction Neville Longbottom and all the brave students left at Hogwarts. A little *too* sugary at times but otherwise, the what *really* happened at Hogwarts during DH fic I've been YEARNING for.

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.

Some People Paint by [livejournal.com profile] with_a_kay R Parker/Eliot/Hardison

"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.



Torchwood

Well, Tomorrow We’ll Wake Up Entwined In Red Tape by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch PG-13 Suzie/Jack

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.

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.
