Recs – 20 July 2012

Another week, another batch of recommendations. At least I hope. Sometimes I read a ton, sometimes I read nothing at all. And I definitely go through trends in what I am or am not reading.

Recs – 6 Jan 2011

Another batch of my reading. Since this one includes a “not off AO3” item, I’ll do that one in the old style, simply so that it’s done in some way consistent to something. This means there are two ways of doing things, and I’ll place all the “old style” entries at the top, and all the AO3 styled entries at the bottom.


Psych

Recs – 30 Dec 2011

I’ve been ages in not doing recs, and really need to get back into it, since I still do read a fair bit of fanfic. Since I’ve gotten an account on A03 and that’s where most of my fic-reading happens I’ve decided to just take to using the codes they’ve got for sharing bookmarks/recing through them. The feature is there, and I’m damned well going to use it.

They will still be filtered into my own format on my various recs pages, though.

Recommendations – Week of 12 June 2011

This is not everything I read, just those things that stick out and I consider work retaining a record of. Things I think others should read, too.

 

Avengers

  • Call Me Old Fashioned by Oohshasha
    (Thor/Steve)
    PG-13: Slash, Cuteness
    Five times Thor tried to woo Steve and failed. One time that it worked. Adorable, though a touch abrupt at the end.

 

Fast and the Furious

  • Caught by Twilighthdfan
    (Brian/Dom)
    NC-17: Slash
    A very small and yet profound made by changing the target of a single sentence can change an entire moment.

 

Trigun

  • Visible Scars by Andraste
    (Vash/Wolfwood)
    NC-17: Slash
    Maybe it’s the warmth of the sun finally driving him crazy, or dehydration making him light-headed. Nick doesn’t care. By the time they reach a town and find a cheap hotel, he’s so far gone that when the girl behind the counter winks at him and asks if he wants her to charge them by the hour or the night, he just blinks

Recommendations – Week of 5 June 2011

This is not everything I read, just those things that stick out and I consider work retaining a record of. Things I think others should read, too.

 

Avengers

  • Thirst by Velithya
    (Steve/Tony)
    PG: Slash, Blood, Vampires
    I’m a sucker for a good vampire story, and while this one doesn’t get into the hows and whyfors, it certainly puts a character you wouldn’t expect to in a vampire situation.

 

Natruto

  • Ties That Bind by Miko no Da
    (Kiba/Neiji)
    R: Slash, Mild Hurt/Comfort
    Decidedly fun story in which Neiji and Kiba become bound by a jutsu and learn not only to tolerate each other, but to appreciate each other.

 

Trigun

  • Fait Accompli by MissJinny
    (Vash/Wolfwood)
    R: Slash, Violence, Hurt/Comfort
    Wolfwood dosen’t die. I don’t feel like more needs saying. Certain episodes of the show just happen to be above my notice.
  • Sweating Bullets by Tenshi
    (Vash/Wolfwood)
    NC-17: Slash, Hurt/Comfort
    Improvised medical services followed by debauchery

 

Recommendations – Weeks of 22 & 29 May 2011

his is not everything I read, just those things that stick out and I consider work retaining a record of. Things I think others should read, too. This pair of weeks I read very little online due to homework, school finishing (I’m a college Grad now!) and a week long Vacation outside the country in which I didn’t have a ton of interneting time.

 

Crossovers

  • Traditional by DameRuth Sherlock (BBC)/His Dark Materials
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash, Fluff
    The Holmes at Christmas. With Daemons and John Watson in tow.

Recommendations – Week of 15 May 2011

Sherlock (BBC)

  • Shadows on the Wall by AraSigyrn
    (Sherlock/John)
    PG: Slash, Awesome paranormalness
    I adore anything paranormal in this fandom, and this story is exceptional. It contains great buildup to get to the point where John’s secret needs revelation and employs a wonderful AU rewrite of much the main storyline. A stellar work.
  • Show Me How to Stop Running by etothepii (Stochastical)
    (Sherlock/John)
    R: Slash, Paranormalness
    I have this thing for supernatural sherlock stories, I really do. Werewolves in this one, it’s very much fun. Also, DI Lestrade in a positive light. gotta love that.
  • I Used to Live Alone Before I Knew You by etothepii (Stochastical)
    (Sherlock/John)
    R: Slash, Paranormalness
    Sherlock as a demon. Amazing story with a great deal of feeling to it. Worth a read.
  • They tell me their secrets (will you tell me yours too) by etothepii (Stochastical)
    (Sherlock/John)
    PG: Slash, Paranormalness
    I completely want a sequel to this. Technomancer John is just fun.
  • Lupercalia ‘verse by Mad_Maudlin
    (Sherlock/John)
    R: Slash, Paranormalness
    Such a fascinating universe. I <3 werewolves.
  • An Addition to the Family by i_know_its_0ver
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash
    Because everyone needs a dog.
  • That thing you like by misspamela
    (Sherlock/John)
    NC-17: Slash
    I’ve long been a sucker for a holiday story, but this one is extra fun and very well written.

 

Crossovers

  • Two Doctors, A Nurse, A Detective and A Scot by WritingispudyDoctor Who, Sherlock (BBC) (Sherlock/John, Amy/Rory)
    G: Slash, Het, Humor
    Epic hilarious and clever-offs between the galaxies two cleverest beings. Also, deerstalkers are cool.

Recommendations – Week of 8 May 2011

In an effort to get back into thinking more about what’s what and what I read/ect… I’m sharing things again. This is not everything I read, just those things that stick out and I consider work retaining a record of. Things I think others should read, too.

Sherlock (BBC, 2011)

  • Black Ice by Elvendork
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash, Hurt/Comfort
    A pretty little hurt comfort piece with everyone in character.
  • An Idle Quest by coloredink
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash
    An adorable little tale in which Sherlock takes the initiative to be romantic.
  • Bells Are Ringing by Basingstoke
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash, Schmoop
    So cute. So much fun. Mycoft makes Sherlock French. Absolutely made me giggle.
  • Lab Book by Sam Storyteller
    (Sherlock/John)
    NC-17: Slash
    I adore this one. Characterization is dead on and that can be hard when they’re acting so cute.

Recs – March 9th

This post is a collected list of Recommendations made at my Recs Tumblelog between the dates of March 1st through March 9th.

Fan Fiction
Red vs Blue
– Deconstruction by tsukinobotan (Grif x Simmons) PG: Slash, Language [Reced 3.1.2008] A lovely piece in which Donut and Grif interact on the subject of Simmons.
– Aim by Grimmons88 (Grif x Simmons) NC-17: Slash, Explicit Sex, Violence, Language, Mildly Non-consensual sex [Reced 3.3.2008] This is one of those stories that drew me into the RvB Slash fandom with it’s blatant Cyborg!Simmons and dark tones. Deep darkness is interspersed with moments of shining light. Definitely worth the read. I dream of a sequel… or at least a oneshot with the two (relatively) happy together.

Jurassic Park
– No Force On Earth Or Heaven by Tarlan (Alan x Billy) PG-13: Slash, Violence [Reced 3.2.2008] A retelling of JP3 that includes a touch of homoerotic romance.

Heroes
– Control by flying_monkees (Sylar x West) NC-17: Non-con, underage, mindfucking [Reced 3.3.2008] I’m warped. Nothing more or less. Wonderfully written.

Harry Potter
– Poisons and Remedies by Megyal (Harry x Draco) NC-17: Slash [Reced 3.9.2008] An interesting future-view of the potential world of Harry Potter, in which the key to defeating darkness was embracing it.

Fan Art
Red vs Blue
– Fanart Post by tttroy (Donut x Caboose, Grif x Simmons, Caboose (Alone), Church x Caboose) PG: Slash [Reced 3.6.2008] A lovely set of finished and sketch works. I really love tttroy’s style, and thier take on the characters. I honestly can’t wait to see more.
– RvB Comic by wandamagick (Church x Tucker) PG: Slash [Reced 3.8.20008] An intereesting future-view of the potential world of Harry Potter, in which the key to defeating darkness was embracing it.
