Winter Mile by Brix. Sark/Sydney. 50949 words. Wonderfully disturbing and
delicious. Read your fic warnings if such things matter to you!
Sin For Me by Jinni. Sarkney, PWP that literally leaves you wanting more. (Link unavailable.)
The Twelfth of Never by Yahtzee: Fantastic five AUs story, Jack/Irina.
Weapons by kantayra - Sydney/Sark. Stories like this make me all the more ticked off at the show. All that wasted, glorious potential, used up on Vaughn. Destroy, Sydney, Destroy! *flicks lighters*
Batman, SV/Batman Recs: Found here.
Five Deaths (Laura Roslin) by Rheanna | R
Laura takes a minute to focus her
thoughts, then presses the labeled button on the speakerphone that gives her a
direct line to Galactica's CIC.
If You're the Answer, What's the Question? by Zahra. Kara/various. Excellent, excellent Kara fic - this one really rang true for me. The scenes with Leoben totally had me choking. (In the good way! Sort of! You'll see what I mean.)
Pop Divas After The End
of the World! by meyerlemon
Something Pretty by Kate Andrews | NC-17
She said in a
singsong voice, "Whatcha doin'?"
The Absolutely, Positively True (Sort Of)
Fictional Adventures of Hot Pilots in Love - Part II, Part I is linked in this
post by Widget.
You know, I used to read het before I started in SV. I now read 90% slash. This is one of two fandoms I read primarily het still. John and Aeryn? *heartthud* Also...I have a little thing for Scorpius--and well, anyone. Yes, mostly Crichton. Shh.
Alligator Alley by Regala Electra | PG-13 | Humor/Drama *Crossover with BtVS*
"Erin's a nice name," she says supportively, wanting to hear about the woman who's making his eyes dance in happiness.
"A-E-R-Y-N." He spells it quickly and explains off her confused look, "She's not from around here."
"European?" she guesses.
"Sebeacean." He looks at her strangely. "Have you been keeping up with the international news lately?"
"The whole mission to update IASA and unite the world for a unified space program? Not really. Sunnydale was sort of isolated. I, well, I was sort of Sunnydale-oriented. Never had the time to keep track of national and international news. I don't really know what's the what."
He looks puzzled but amused. "You have no idea who I am."
She gives him a challenging look, "You have no idea who I am."
I do believe in ghosts by Makiko | R | Drama
It feels so good to let go, and he breathes bactine-tinged air and for a moment the chair doesn't hurt anymore. His memories spill out like marbles, and he can't stop laughing.
Light Side of the Moon by M. | R | Drama
In the split breath of absolute darkness between the deception of a sun and the inception of a corolla, John disappears. Scorpius does not look for him in the dark, even if his hands itch to be on John always. He is afraid that the human will wither, flit away like a dream if he loses sight of him for a microt.
John would have faded and decayed had Scorpius not found him. Crumbled like a dried husk, skin cracked and peeled, improbable knowledge carried off into mud when the techs scrubbed the cell clean of his remains. Scorpius was not scheduled to inspect this secret installation for another monen. There would have been nothing left of John before the weeken was up. This must be fate.
Memento Mori by Kixxa | PG-13 | Drama
Scorpius takes a few steps forward and the alarmed soldiers lift their weapons with nervous alacrity. “I finally have what I want...” he says, caressing John with his eyes.
“We got places back on Earth for sick and twisted people like you. They get locked away so they can’t annoy people any more,” John spits back, trying to wash the stare from his mind.
Scorpius smiles slightly and takes a step towards the Human who watches him advance with blazing eyes.
Suddenly, a high pitched voice flutters into John’s consciousness and he jerks his head suddenly to the looming black shape of the marauder.
Warm in the Night, Cold as a Stone by astrogirl12. JOHN/SCORPIUS FIC! *RUNS AROUND IN CIRCLES* (Ah, John/Scorpius, the rarest of breeds in the fic wilds, even more so than Batman/Joker, which is...somehow even wronger.)
I'm a H/D girl all the way, but PoA definitely awakened the R/S reading. Also, I guess I could start with saying I like Maya. I really, really, (no, really) like Maya. Anything here that's not H/D is labeled.
An Open Letter to the Person With Whom I've Been Engaging in Various Sordid Acts, Including but Not Limited to Mutual Masturbation, Terribly Sloppy Oral Sex and Also There Was the Time That We Attempted Actual Intercourse Only to Discover It Was Horribly Awkward by Breed | R | Humor | *D/R
4. The biscuits your mother baked for your birthday were hard and I threw them in the dustbin after eating one. Rather than apologising, you complained that I'd stolen your birthday biscuits. Do us all a favour and grow up.
A Slytherin in Gryffindor's Clothing
Mahaliem. Harry/Draco. OMG, this was absolutely
*adorable*. I can't believe I haven't read this before. Draco crosses over into
another world (uh, so to speak) wherein he's a Gryffindor and his BFFs are
Granger and Weasley. The *horror*. And Potter's a bloody Slytherin!
A Thousand Beautiful Things by Duinn Fionn | R | Drama
And in this dark, empty corridor, where he stood balanced between two worlds - here between the past and the unknown future - he could pretend that this kiss was the only thing that mattered. Here, he allowed himself to imagine he was no longer Draco Malfoy, with every bit of history that name dragged with it, but just a lonely soldier headed off to war. And here, he could almost believe that Potter was different, too.
They both pulled away as reality slowly reasserted itself. His heart pounding, his breath unsteady, he reluctantly dropped his hands and took a single step back. He'd acted with recklessness, with no reason he could name, and his head was whirling. He certainly hadn't expected to relish or to take pleasure in their kiss quite like that - but he had.
"What - what was that for?" Potter managed to stammer.
He smiled without any effort. "For trying. And maybe for luck."
Blowing Origami or Those Things that Really Suck by Zahra | PG-13
Potter in the nose is very soothing to Draco’s nerves. Correction: having
Goyle punch Potter in the nose is very soothing, because Draco’s not stupid
enough to start a fight like that without someone to do the dirty work. And even
though violence of this sort doesn’t solve Draco’s problem, it certainly makes
him feel better in the short run.
Tarie--Ah, Old School
Dancing Queen by Maya| R | Humor
When the door opened Harry was confronted with the most bizarre thing he had ever seen.
Emotion and Squishy Armchairs
from Ceresi. Draco isn't the best judge of expressions. Adorable little story.
For Those With Anger Management Issues by Zahra. I think this just might be my first Ron/Draco. Zahra made it a nice and painless entry. Great sense of humor, and wonderful dialogue and tone. (For Malfoy! And *Ron!* Wow.)
Four Letter Words by Breed | NC-17 | Humor
It only takes two hours
for most of the sixth year boys to find out that Draco Malfoy has a pornographic
novel on him, and at lunch the Slytherin table is crowded with a cluster of boys
from every house pestering him to let them see. Malfoy is at his prime, here.
He sits back in his seat and feigns innocence, though it is clear that this is
exactly what he wanted when he acquired the smut in the first place.
Friend Like Me by
ladyvader. It came up recently that I never actually
put this on my recs page, despite it being one of my favorite HP fics of all
time. Crazily engrossing and fascinating and heartbreaking and okay, basically
it's a Harry-is-sorted-into-Slytherin-fic which is...happymaking. Don't let the
POV or some of the prose selections throw you off, trust me - this is gold.
Harry Potter and the Eagle of Truthiness (Crossover)
Invisible to See by FayJay | NC-17 | Drama/Romance
"What are you doing here?"
"I'm asking myself that very question. This place is a morgue."
Esme crossed her arms across her narrow chest and scowled. She seemed considerably less cowed than she ought to be.
"Does Professor Dumbledore know you're here?" she asked. Draco rolled his eyes.
"No, Esme. I broke in unnoticed, miraculously evaded all the alarms and wards and charms that the combined might of Dumbledore and all his cronies have built up around this place and happened to stumble across the right password to get through the door on my very first shot." She stared at him blankly. "Of course Dumbledore knows, you prat. I've seen the light, haven't I? The scales have fallen from my eyes, and all that clichéd rubbish. I'm taking a stand for truth, justice, bunny rabbits and baby Muggles. The prodigal returned. Bring out the fatted calf. Did you miss me?"
Heart by Emmagrant01
Lightning Has Just Struck My Brain by Mousapelli | R | Drama *H/N
There were a lot of things about Neville that weren't making sense to Harry.
Like why they had him use his father's wand all this time instead of getting him one of his own, when everybody knew you wouldn't do as well as with your own and clearly Neville needed all the help he could get.
Like how even with the new wand there wasn't fantastic improvement. There was a little bit, but nothing like the dramatic improvement that had happened when Ron had got his own wand instead of his brother's.
Loved Those of Great Ambition
by Maya | R |
by Calico and Julad | NC-17 | Drama
Magic Words by Pru. Remus/Sirius. Great pacing, characterization and dialogue in a story that is alternately sweet and funny as all get out (poor, poor Remus) and a very good introduction into getting a feel for this pairing.
Momenti Diversi by Zarah. Featuring
Harry in Italy and extremely possessive/hot/sexy/calculating Draco. So. Damn.
Hot. (Link goes directly to website; just go to the HP section and scroll.)
Naked Quidditch Match
by Anya | PG-13 | Humor
(written in e-mail format)
Mates, we're going to lose the bet. Harry's gone AWOL. I overhead Dumbledore talking to McGonagall and they think he's just handed himself over to Voldemort rather than play the game starkers.
Never Mind The
Bollocks, It's Draco/Harry (Shake Your Groove Thing)
Older, Wiser, Sadder by Shalott | G *HP/SS
The next month he had the belladonna and ariseth right, and Snape scowled at the cup. "You've done something wrong, and so egregiously that I would have to perform a detailed analysis to determine what," he said. "Save yourself a great deal of trouble and turn to activities that suit your talents. Lavatory cleaning comes to mind."
Harry mastered the first remarks that occurred to him. "If I get it right, you won't have to brew the Wolfsbane anymore."
Ouroboros by tkp. Post-DH fic. Or, why the epilogue was creepy.
Prelude 1/1 by Nifra. HP/Sandman crossover this time. Tom Riddle? Meet Dream. Especially strong and creeptastic finish.
Scrap Paper by Nattish. Awkward, adorable H/D. And the endingggg.
by Amanuensis | R | Drama *H/L
Snatch by didntyoupotter. H/D. Excellent Draco POV, really cool story. Great dialogue to boot!
Take It And Like It
Ten Thousand Forfeit Heartbeats by
The Familiar by Resonant. Harry/Snape. Harry gets turned into a frog and...go! This is yet another one of those well-known stories that I never managed to put on my recs page. I feel so inferior!
The Properties of Being Lost by Aja | NC-17
like someone with a crush. He dresses his best on days he will see Potter. He
stares when he doesn’t mean to. He plays out imaginary conversations wherein he
is sparkling and witty, only to have them go horribly awry when he tries them
out, thanks to Potter’s spectacular loathing and indifference. He cannot blame
Potter, since he loathes Potter as well, and since he knows Potter is taking all
his attempts at talking to be veiled threats. This is, in its way, a sort of
comfort: at least Potter seems to judge Draco capable of making the
threats, even if he doesn’t take them seriously. Draco himself hears only the
thin-voiced almost-pleadings that keep inexplicably coming out of his mouth
(Sequel: The Properties of Voyeurism)
The Recruitment of Harry Potter by Craig Berman,
Underwater Light by Maya | R | Drama/Humor - This is kind of the greatest story in the HP world. I think there's a kind of slow start in the first few chapters, but then the author totally finds her footing and it becomes Epically Amazing. Right around the part where Harry's talking to Narcissa and she says how much Draco had wanted to be his friend, only he doesn't quite get it/hear it. Gah. Crazily beautiful and again, EPIC.
completely incoherent sod, are you trying to be my friend?”
Unfinished Business by Cupiscent | R | Drama
He sat in bed, covers round his waist, hair loose against his shoulders, and turned the letter over in his hands. The fires were already lit in the room, dispelling the chill. Last night, the morning to come had seemed to be just one more winter's morning in a neverending line of them. Now, suddenly, he was holding a letter from a man he hadn't seen in ten years, and everything about the day was strange.
He kept a dagger under his pillow; with a small smile, he used it to break the seal, split it right through the middle of that lightning bolt.
There were two papers in the letter. One was an invitation, gilt and official - "Lord Harry Potter beseeches the company of... etc, etc". Draco passed it over for the accompanying note, just half a page of handwriting he almost recognised from school. Time and use had given the hand firmness and confidence, but it still wavered here and there, and Draco found himself scanning the lines for those discrepancies without reading the words themselves.
He started again.
I stopped sending you these after a couple of years. I got tired of your refusals, however politely phrased. But it's been ten years now. I thought I'd try again. It would be good to see you.
Your Every Wish by Maya | NC-17 | Drama
I sort of love everyone on this show in S1, but especially Peter, Nathan, Sylar and Mohinder. Recs will tend to be some combination of those characters.
A Newtonian Co-Dependence by Lenore. Peter/Nathan. 2121 words. Ambition rattles around in the Petrelli DNA, and Peter has none of the practicality that keeps the rest of his family safely moored to earthly endeavors.
And This Too Shall (Not) Pass by Zahra. Peter/Nathan, Heroes. Really enjoyed this, and then totally *loved* the ending. That was his issue, these were his demons, and so, he held his peace, because he could wait this out.
Break by Ladyvader. Gen, approaching Sylar/Mohinder. 1543 words. This woman wrote the one and only story that ever made me actually cry in HP fandom. (Okay, fine, not the only story, but the only *good* story that made me cry. Semantics!) I was naturally elated at seeing her name pop up over at mylar_fic. In which Mohinder breaks a drugged Sylar out of the Company's clutches. I like Mohinder best when he's plotty and ruthless. And I like Sylar best when he's killing annoying people and heading home for Mohinder. This fic features both!
Buoy by barely_bean. Peter, Nathan, Gen. Protective!Nathan, with solid, good characterization. I'm always there.
Distractions by Squills. Sylar/Mohinder. I so enjoyed the Sylar POV in this.
Face In The Crowd by Saestina. Claire fic. Wow. This story was just...beautiful. Claire finds out she's not aging. She feels her father’s hands on her shoulders, guiding her up out of her chair and steering her back to their car, but she’s numb to the real world, seeing instead the death of a hundred thousand dreams play out before her eyes.
Five Games Sylar Never Played by Hope. Wherein there is Mylar, murder and children taking care of business. Freaking awesome. *resounding!*
More Than You Know by Nutkin. J2. 3602 words. J2 roadtrip fic. Between you, you have: four parents, three girlfriends, an almost-fiancée, a movie about a painter, a movie about a sandwich shop, $30K in a bank account, a case of Corona and a pack of Doublemint. That's what they start out at the beginning of the fic; what they have by the end of it is just a...smidgen different. What a gleeful story!
Nascent by Kate Andrews. Heroes, 22,000 words of Peter/Claire. Peter/Claire that I *believed*.
Solipsism by Handsomespeck. Sylar/Mohinder. 2989 words. Hmm. So that was totally evil. And interesting. And evil. Heed the warnings. (Or if you're like me with this pairing, embrace the warnings.)
Stolen Virtues of Lesser Men by
them0rgue. Sylar/Mohinder. Five Years Gone Sylar POV.
by Kadorienne. Hiro-centric.
The Love Song of Gabriel "Sylar" Gray by Zahra. Mohinder/Sylar. 1139 words. Oh, this is so my Sylar. There might be loud purring when one reads this story. At night, Mohinder calls Sylar's name, and he knows this because both Gabriel and Sylar are very much attuned to Mohinder's whereabouts: when he's sleeping, when he's eating, when he's excited or tired or jerking off in the shower and trying to muffle the noise.
Tomorrow Never Came by mneiai. Sylar/Mohinder, Heroes. Because I have a black, black heart, I really loved that last line. Oh Mohinder. You so are.
What You Wish For by Cerebel. Matt
Parkman, Mohinder/Sylar, Heroes. Awesome Matt POV.
Batman. Superman. This show made me think of the Flash as a *sex object*.
Duty by Merlin Missy. No one wants to pull patrol duty. Cute. It's *always* a Martian Holy Day. *snickering*
Wally swallows and Batman reaches out before he can
think, stopped only by another one of those laughs. "I don't. I really don't
want to know what you plan to do about the fact that I have. Bodily functions."
by Nifra. Post-"A Better World", Lois p.o.v. that's dead on.
Three Vignettes for 'A Better World' by Kassia06
OTP on this show--Jack/Sawyer. Or mostly, Jack/anyone. Big Jack fangirl here. Sawyer's a close second.
Adrenaline by elise_509. Lost, Jack/Juliet, NC-17. Okay. Jack and co. have only been on the island for less than three months. Only, it feels like three years. Go figure. I'm basically of the mind that if Sawyer's not going to get his act together already, the new pretty lady doctor is worthier of Jack than Kate these days. Also, I learned from this story that the pairing is called 'Jacket' in Lost fandom. I--I'll go with that.
Call It by uberaeryn. Jack/Sawyer. Aww, I'm a sucker for 'Sawyer Having Jack's Back' stories. Just--huh. Crazy, sexy fic that probably shouldn't read this well at all, yet somehow does.
Claire's War by yahtzee63. Multiple pairings, characters; it's this really cool, fantastic drabble series, all separately titled with Babylon 5 titles. It *works*. Just amazing pov work. Drabbles are freaking hard to get right, and it takes a real talent to punch in actual emotional content, and wow, this is maybe the best work in the format that I've seen as of yet.
Expectations by carolinecrane. Jack/Boone. Short but so sweet. (Link unavailable.)
Five Views of an Ending by andraste_oz. No pairing. Charlie-centric. This isn't a pretty story by any means. And as you go along, it just keeps getting stronger and stronger.
foxxclub. Jack/Sawyer. The snark! The
adorable, hot snark! *bounces* The glasses!
Lightning Risked it All by
slodwick. Jack/Boone. I just love the
rapport the two of them have in this story. Beautiful descriptions, strong
characterization and doctor-in-training Boone! What's not to love?
Like the New Normal by sinaddict. Shannon/Boone, Shannon/Sawyer. OMG. Shannon. OPI nail polish. This just--*incoherent squee noises*. That's all I've got.
Moral Victory by
thou_art_that. Sawyer/Boone. Boone wants
his damn book back. Also, some sunscreen. *giggles* Damn, hot story.
On Being God by uberaeryn. Jack-centric, Jack/Sawyer. Really beautiful story with this oddly quiet, unrushed ending. Really enjoyed this one. (Link unavailable.)
Prison Break, Michael/Mahone.
Untitled Prison Break Story by eleveninches. Michael/Mahone, written for meeeee. Featuring tattoos and bathroom sex and - yeah, I couldn't stop laughing for a couple minutes because I know this was a total sacrifice for her, writing porn, much less *porn in a bathroom* for a show she probably hurts herself laughing over. Read it and I think you will find that obsessive!Mahone and the freaking tattoo are really all you need to sell a story.
So I started out liking Michael quite a bit, but I grew to feel the Justin love. Brian is going to be a rival with Lex for my affections, I can feel this, but I suspect there is enough room in my heart to love both their jaded asses equally.
Brian Like Me by mlefay and eleveninches | NC-17
In some of the weirdest two days
of Brian's life, both Vic and Justin stop speaking to him. Plants, animals, and
objects visibly recoil when he comes close. Brian enjoys the silence as much as
anyone with an angry boyfriend and a bleeding ulcer can.
Busy Week on the Fridge by Julad | PG
Hmm. Don't want to quote from this. Just click.
International Brian Kinney Day by eleveninches | PG-13
"But if we did get married," Justin continued, in that voice that told Brian he had been thinking long and hard about this, "you could plan the entire thing. Every last detail, from the clothes to the food. It would be like... Brian Kinney Day."
Raw by burnitbackwards. Brian/Justin, NC-17. Brian and Justin decide to try sex bareback. (No, really.) And lo, it is awesome.
No More Ugly Naked Guy by darksylvia. QaF/Friends crossover. 1236 words. The second time they saw Hot Naked Guy, Phoebe was over, serenading Monica and Rachel with the song she'd just written, entitled "Ducks are Deadly" about the duck that had attacked her in the park.
Harry/Peter, all the way. Except when it's not. In which case, I'll put up a little **. I have found *one* recs page that caters to this pairing. This makes me sad and in the mood to try and remedy.
At the Scene of the Crime by Sarah T. | NC-17
There was no one to see them, and you didn't need superpowers to anticipate Harry's slow, awkward punch, anyway, so Peter let himself evade it, catch Harry's arm, and sit them both back down, Harry's head dropping onto Peter's shoulder. Harry gave a great gasp for air and muttered, "Damnit, Peter, don't...you're the only real friend I have left..."
Black by Elektra Pendragon | NC-17 **Norman Osborn/Harry Osborn
Norman Osborn loved the colour black. Black, like Harry's eyes when he's hurting and vulnerable. Black, like the bruises Norman could never explain to his son. Black, like the house when Harry snuck back in, crawling back to family when the rest of the world abandoned him.
Norman barely heard the young man calling out to him, the Goblin's laughter was so loud in his ears. Finally, the cries of "Dad?" broke through, barely audible, almost like a whisper in the storm. It was enough to give Norman the strength to leave the room and appear at the top of the stairs for his son.
Complicated by Glacis | NC-17
Peter shut the door behind him and walked further into the apartment, stopping a few feet from Harry. "I thought ... I thought maybe you'd be at your dad's house," he said quietly. "Doing business?" He had no idea what sort of things an heir had to do when his multi-billionaire father died, so he made it a question.
Harry shook his head. "Lawyers tomorrow. I told them I didn't want to discuss it until I was in a more rational frame of mind." He choked out a bitter laugh. "Like a pack of vultures up at the house. I ducked out the back and came here."
Peter looked around, wondering when they'd show up. Harry laughed again, a little less bleakly.by Katheryne. Don't be put off that it's on ff.net! It's a really solid, thoughtful piece that made my heart clench. POV of one of the people on the train that Spiderman rescued, neat scenario presented here.
One Year, One Month by Dien | NC-17 **
"Yeah. Listen-- It's Otto, right? Otto Octavius?"
Resolution by CCCarioca | PG-13 (Link unavailable.)
Peter brushes leaves away
from the grave and puts down the red tulip he bought earlier, then tightens his
jacket around himself. Sundays were never meant to be this ugly and cold, but as
he looks at the cloudy grey sky, he's just glad there's no rain to make things
worse. The chill November wind is bad enough.
Riptide by Veuki | NC-17
Sometimes, late at
night when Harry stays over at Peter's house, Harry calls for his mother in his
sleep. When this happens Peter always slides silently out of bed, touches his
friend's shoulder, smoothes Harry's sweaty hair back from his cold forehead. He
watches him sleep; watches over Harry, long after Harry has stopped whimpering
and tossing and turning. Peter has never told Harry this.
Sea Change by Shalott | R
"How could you?"
Harry said. "I thought, I trusted--" He slid down to his knees like his legs
wouldn't hold up any longer, whole body slumping, and put his head down on the
pillows next to Peter and just cried.
The Strange Bedfellows Series by Zahra | R
My wife is dead.
Wanted: One Hero, At Any Cost by Zahra | PG-13
People don't write
articles about his dad anymore, but sometimes they write stories about Harry.
Most of the time though, they write about him -- Spider-Man -- because
everybody's been fooled, even Peter.
Chrysostom by tafkarfanfic. Daniel/Vala. No matter what she says, this is so not gen. Daniel! Sex by talking! God.
Instafic by Synecdochic and Frostfire_17 - Jack/Daniel. Evil!Overlord Daniel. Do I have to say anything beyond that in order to rec this story? He...the boy makes for a really good Evil!Overlord. *vouches*
Reveille by astolat
- Jack/Daniel. Characterizations all dead-on, telepathy, cliches, and great sex.
What's not to love, I ask you?
you can buy her things now but she'll never be bought by minervacat. Daniel/Vala, NC-17. This was just so cute, and made me smile all the way through. The author totally captures their dynamic spot-on, and I think this is probably my favorite story with this pairing.
Another Country Beckons by
Rae Trail. 18,000 words. Summary: A starship captain discovers that his
subconscious mind has been busily courting while his conscious mind runs his

also with those of a telepathic alien, who has designs on Kirk.
by K'Sal - Kirk/Spock.
Mimor VI by Jesmihr, Kirk/Spock, NC-17, non-con warnings. (Also note that there is a slightly not-work safe pic at the top of this. Rather, a picture that I would imagine questions would be asked about. *g*) Kirk goes off to rescue a kidnapped Spock. *wibbly* Total h/c fic, and thoroughly enjoyable.
On the Brink by Jenna
Hilary Sinclair. 6,000 words. Summary: Kirk has taken that first big step: he's
asked Spock if he would be interested in an intimate relationship. But Spock's
not even sure that he can react to his captain in a sexual manner. He needs some
time to think about it.
Personal Effects by Jesmihr, Kirk/Spock, NC-17. Some aliens give Spock a robot. Kirk doesn't take it well.
Reality by Tiggy Malvern. It is *hard* to find good Picard/Q. I suffered greatly on the road to this fic. The depth of his fury at Q surprised him somewhat until he realised that it wasn't just the choice Q had given him that he raged against. It was Q himself. After all these months of absence, Q had returned to do *this* to him: to taunt him, to weaken him, to force him to make the decision that Q knew he didn't want. It was a deliberate manipulation and it felt strangely like betrayal.
I was up reading Star Trek again
till...okay, really, really late, and
by Judith Gran is the first story where I
just--it made me really sad. Kirk/Spock, NC-17. I sat in my chair for a
couple minutes and went and poured myself some juice, and put on some boppy
music to dance around to at four in the morning, but I find that I'm still all:
HEY. HEY. HEY, LADY today.
Still Amok by Jat Sapphire.
9300 words. Summary: Spock told McCoy and Kirk that his pon farr was over, but
is it? And its sequel:
Coals of Fire. Summary: Set
between "Amok Time" and "This Side of Paradise." What happened after the
president's inauguration on Altair 6. 31,000 words. Note: There is a prequel to
both of these, but it's pre-K/S so I haven't gotten around to it. You can find
it on her main page.
The Word Withheld by J S Cavalcante. Kirk/Spock. In which Spock leaves out the third definition of t'hy'la and shenanigans ensue.
What I Am To You by Cimorene111 - Kirk/Spock. Post ST:III fic; You seem perfectly calm as you say, "How long have we been lovers?" And I am certain I have heard you correctly, even as I struggle not to allow my astonishment to show on my face.
With Relish by Jesmihr.
5,100 words. Summary: Why they ought to put warning labels on jars of Kersakkian
Lost in Translation
helenish was adorable,
yet, it bothered me for one reason: You see, I'm in the process of writing my
fic, and if I'd had *her* idea, I could have mindwiped John or Rodney into being
a sex slave and done all the cute things she did in this story, and I'd have a
*kick-ass story* on my hands, but no, no, she had to go and write it. I could
Nice Girls Don't by Somniesperus - Miranda/Andy, Devil Wears Prada. I am having such a blast reading her Prada stories. And Miranda coveting turned out to be just as hot as I somehow suspected it might be.
Uninvited by hayseed_42. Miranda/Andy. Miranda meets Andy's parents. The good times roll.
The Straw & the Camel by Zahra.
Cripples Dancing by Zahra. Hot. Real. Sweet. So hot. A few words to describe
this one, but I think this will do it better justice:
I like Rogue. I like Wolverine. I like Xavier. I like Erik. That covers it, actually.
Songs of a Wayfarer by Marguerite | R (written in e-mail format)
Uh. This is the greatest show on t.v. in S1. I love everyone. Just--everyone.
5 Ways Lilly Kane Never Died by sadiekate. Veronica Mars. Very, very cool story.
Pay To The Order Of by alocalband. Coda-ish for Kanes and Abel's. Logan writes checks. Pretty, soothing atmosphere, just a really lovely story. One of my favorites for this couple.
Sweeten the Pot by romanticalgirl. Logan/Veronica/Weevil. Smart, with snark, naturally.
The Evil You Know by romanticalgirl. Shifting Logan/Veronica p.o.v. that works very well. Also, this one hurts.
Tinkerbelle and I by mswyrr. Veronica/Logan, a nice conversation between the two.
Veronica Mars is Smarter Than This by
fox1013. Veronica/Logan. Great humor,
dark humor, and this pairing is so rightly fucked up in good hands.
Transference by Viridian5, Gabriel/Ian. A shorter fic, and one of the only good Gabriel/Ian stories I've ever been able to find. These two have always held an enormous amount of...potential, and the author captures that quite well. Their interaction is vivid here, and it definitely fits these characters.
Light Inescapable by Sare Liz and Jenn, Sara/Ian. A great look at Ian's role in Sara's lives. (No, not a typo.) A story that makes me feel wistful all over again for the sheer potential of these two and everything it almost was.
by Sare Liz. This is a truly interesting, fun twist using the
"Choose Your Own Adventures" books as a format for the story. What happens when
you pick A instead of B? Pick your own path to follow in the story and see where
you and Sara end up. The author actually says it best in her summation: "...and
as we all know from Witchblade, from our own lives, and from the Choose Your Own
Adventure books, one decision can make a world of difference."
Turn the Page by Mala,
PG-13. It's short, quite short, actually. Yet the story
fits well in that brief frame. It's the only look at Gabriel in those final
moments that I've ever been able to find, and it works. There are some nice
one-shot lines that will linger with you for a while.
