steady as it goes by silviakundera
Caroline, Damon, Stefan [future fic]
I read this as a lot more hopeful than maybe other people did. This is the healthy threesome, as oppose to the Elena angstfest, and Katherine painfest. Caroline's got a great bounce-back-ability to her. That said there is an undertone of sadness at her leaving behind her human life. Unable to stop thinking about and remembering it, even while she tries to move on.

all the same to me by silviakundera
Damon/Elena/Stefan [pretty damn funny]
Stefan POV, as a sort of bemused narrator to the insanity that is Damon Salvatore. That is Damon Salvatore rail-roading him into an incest 'ship. That is Damon Salvatore rail-roading him into a threesome with Elena. That is Damon Salvatore running for Mayor at the same time. Brazilian stripper orgies would make more sense. Epic, wonderful crack.

much more complicated by iphignia939
Damon/Alaric [fuck yeah]
Hilarious Alaric POV. Love their violent/sexy/insane relationship. I like the outsider look on what Stefan is like as well.

Sam/Dean [epic] [pulling on the heartstrings] [long fic]
It's a big bang, got that lovely grand, epic feel to it. Very angsty painful. Really, take your heart apart and put it back together. I have a thing for characters growing old and dealing with that, settling into their bodies and recognising the differences. It's especially poignant for ex-hunter types as they have often lost more through injuries, and have more to lose, since they really used their bodies. So older!Dean here, is just wonderful.

a man with his insides out and his outsides off by brotomart_is
Dean/Sam [crying now] [timetravel]
Unf. Killed me, little bit. So heartbreaking and inevitable. Sam 'Moore' is one sad, broken, compelling guy. And poor Dean, all naive and trying to fix it and save everyone and so very Dean in doing all of that.

Sam/Dean, Dean/OMC [non-con] [insanity]
Creepy, veeeery creepy. Good and confusing at first, with Dean all crazy and Sam not there.

heroes for ghosts
Sam, Dean [timetravel] [long fic]
Love the details of the 1800s, get to feel all of Dean's childish glee at being back there, being a gunslinger. Just very good atmosphere to the whole thing, feels very wild west. I love Zeke, love the whole demon/gate plot. Very tense, action-filled fic, there's just something damn cool about riding in on your horse, guns blazing. Big damn heroes. Lots of brilliant hurt in this. Old-timey medicine was harsh. I love the complexity of the brother's relationship as well, The moments we get inside Sam and Dean's heads.

Sam, Dean [timetravel] [long fic]
Yeah I was on a bit of a wild west/cowboy au kick. This ones just brilliant as well, nice ambiguity at the beginning and sustained by the awesome outsider POV. Love all the OCs. Again, loving all the details about how the boys dress. the whole into sequence is basically a love story to Dean's eyes and lips and body and everything. UNF.

HOT this is fucking hot. Oh wow yeah.

Ryan/Seth [au] [long fic]
I think I recced this back when it was a WIP. but it's complete now. Wonderful AU. Great characterisation, lovely slow build up 'ship, Seth all adorable and persistent. Ryan all broken and afraid. Deals extensively with grief and loss (character death, not Ryan or Seth).

Seth/Ryan Ryan/Marissa [ust]
Totally overcame my gag reflex to the pit. Lots of lovely UST sparkiness. definitely good ;)

Ryan/Seth
established relationship, not normally my thing, but I like the details here. And jealous/petty Seth is kinda adorable. Some interesting things about being gay and coming out tied into it as well.

a bruised road by k
Ryan/Seth [pulling on the heartstrings]
God, I love Ryan's thought processes in this, the way he connects love and violence over and over. The way he's totally hurting and just flying blind, but keeps coming back to Seth as his anchor even though he doesn't quite realise it and can't quite trust it, a bit heartbreaking. Lots of Seth-funny in his rambling, particularly the over-45 thing.

reparations by saras_girl (or pdf download here, with sequel).
Harry/Draco [yummy happy] [ust]
Healer Potter is assigned to the rehab ward headed by one Mr Malfoy.
Simple enough set up, Harry and Draco moving from dislike to friendship to more, with a solid mystery plot thrown in. The stuff that makes is worth reading are the character details and the way St Mungo's is brought to life. Also lovely yummy UST. And there's a locked-in-a-cupboard scene. I adore cupboard scenes ;)

throwing shapes by Anna S
[hotness] [fuck yeah]
Xander/Spike
OH WOW, this is hot. Like, really, really hot. There's amnesia, and there's a lot of sex. and kissing , and blow-jobs in the car with the music on loud while the cops are chasing. It's extreme. Abrupt ending though. I then went on to read everything Anna S has written, they are all absurdly hot. (I like the Xander POV ones best though) And possibly I think they end abruptly because actually I don't want them to stop. Ever.

compass rose by tabaqui
Xander/Spike [hotness]
Slightly ooc characterisation, but very hot and fun.

credence by tabaqui
Xander/Spike [au] [dark] [hotness]
AU, very AU. IT HAS OZ. I LOVE OZ. Very dark, very fucked up, very hot. Lovely pack dynamics. The Xander/Spike is really really hot. It's slow, teasing sex, burning all the way through.

Very very Oz 'feel', despite Xander POV. Mellow, somewhat stoned. Smooth slide into the relationship

the common fate of all
Sam/Dean [pitch perfect]
Gorgeous fic, great atmosphere, utterly grey and depressing. Very Wristcutters feel to the hell.

Sam/Dean [emotional kick] [pulling on the heartstrings], [amnesia fic]
Amnesiac!Sam. Great build up, brilliant back-story. Lovely treatment of Sam's amnesia, the way it feels realistic and difficult. Leaves you feel wrung out and slightly *ded*.

chaos theory by balistik94
[fuck yeah]
Hardcore violence apocalypse epic vid. I like how it showcases the similarities across these types of movies. The track choice is perfect, all jerky and frenetic. Great matching to lyrics as well.

Wooh! Look at me being a lazy reccer linking other people's recs xD

[pitch perfect] [character study]
GOD, this is gorgeous. Wonderful vid, great mood. Love the disjointed editing, really brings out the whole sleepless/insomniac relentless insanity that Brendan has in the movie. Good pacing. Lovely use of colour, with the bright, saturated flashback scenes.

TRON
dream within a dream by humansrsuperior
I love the use of original Tron footage at the beginning. And I've been seduced by Glitch Mob since watching the Apple Tree. Very slick, very awesome. Very short.

May have recced before, but it's worth reccing again, definitely. Lovely, gorgeous vid, heartbreaking, epic look at the Harvelle women.

I've introduced a bunch of new tags to try and make searching for fics easier. Not sure how well they'll work, but I'll give them a trail period and see. They're for themes, kinks, something about a character or plot, anything really, it's just meant to be a helpful way of grouping recs.

I'm also going to try and do shorter, more regular rec posts from now on.

MASSSIVE POTTER RECS POST

Some real OLDIES in here. This is more a summary of some of my favourite things in Potter fandom, than recent recs. It's all these old links from years ago that I had in my bookmarks and I decided to move here instead.

If you've been in Potter fandom for a while, chances are you've already read a lot of these, but even so, it's always fun to go back and revisit!

My tastes tend to run with a Slytherin slant, mostly slash: HP/SS or HP/DM, or femslash. However there are some gen and het in there as well.

Intro

Dec. 2nd, 2009 06:31 pm
[identity profile] nemo-r.livejournal.com
I've decided to separate out my recs from my other posts and so I have created this 'ere journal.

I rec for fandom only. The occasional non-fandom recs I make will stay on [livejournal.com profile] nemo_r

This is a multifandom reccing journal, my fandoms expand daily. I rec all ships, all genres, pretty much anything, but my main loves are slash, then femslash, and fic and vids.

I don't tend to rec cutting edge new stuff. Mostly I rec by theme. If I'm in a new fandom, my recs will be new. If I'm discovering an old fandom, they'll be old.


Enjoy!
