It's been a very long time since I last recced here, but I'm trying to take off the dust-covers and open a few windows. I'd like to do a bit of a tag system overhaul, but the size of the project is fairly daunting. Anyway, here's a meagre selection of recs, read over the past two years.

Harry Potter
The Never-ending Road by laventadorn
Harriet/Snape [WIP] [pitch-perfect] [long-fic] [genderswitch]
Does really well with the girl bits - the stress about being short tying into stress about not having breasts. The slowly developing interest in boys. The giggling with the girls and teasing guys over crushes, Ron pulling away and coming back because he thinks he should have guy friends. Just in general the change in dynamic of the trio because two are girls and the change in how Harry reacts to things as a girl is well observed.

D.S.S. Requirement by esama
[WIP]
The HP crew discover the space ship and begin to systematically work through the benefits of having access to superior technology. They don't just pass over the utter coolness of the spaceship and instantly use it for war/plot reasons. It hits my worldbuilding/exploring kink. It's WIP, but possibly abandoned, so while the war starts to come in, there's no actual fighting.

Crossover
Mad House by MissE
NCIS/Buffy [crossover]
Crossover done right - it's v short, but secrets are kept and while the reader can work out what's going on, the characters don't give it away.

Island of Fire by esama
Temeraire/Harry Potter [crossover-fusion]
There's no Temeraire characters directly involved. The focus is really just on the HP crew learning how to survive on a desert island and the enjoyment of their magical worldbuilding

MacGyver
O My Enemy by jane carnall
Murdoc/MacGyver, [amnesia!fic], [angst] [intense] [emotional kick] [ust] [hurt/comfort] [powerless!kink] [foe-yay] [long!fic]
This is in the mode of arsenicjade's hurt/comfort. It's really heavy on the hurt. Has that intensity where the character is so stressed and in such a heightened, fearful state, they no longer know what normal rules of society are or how to function normally. Plus it has all the drama of being both an amnesia fic and foe-yay. Hits a lot of my spots, basically. Plus it's long.

Avengers
make one dream come true (you only live twice) by beardsley
Steve/Bucky, [hotness] [ust]
While the author mentions in the note that this is a nod to James Bond and ridiculous spy movies, it makes me think of Shadow of the Templar, I think because they both kick off with a fake identities, ballroom party, ridiculously smexy type scene. (Which is admittedly a spy movie cliche). Anyway, Steve is so earnest, and the UST is sparkling hot.

Life of Crime by neveralarch
Clint/Natasha/Bucky, Clint/Carol [AU] [pretty damn funny]
I love that it incorporates Clint's deafness into the storyline. I also love the whole right side of the wrong line, not really bad guys but not really good guys thing it has going on. As the author's note says, it definitely draws on the Aja/Fraction comics and has that whole, Clint's just a human, he's out of his league drama. The tone is great, lots of quips, dry humour. A fun read and a good length.




The link is on the left, but I do have some more recent recs over at AO3. I don't give much info with each rec I'm afraid, just a sentence to help me remember them better, which can sometimes mean spoilers.

And I'll point you in the direction of [community profile] kink_finders , where I've made a few posts and left a few recs over the years.

Teen Wolf
Jackson/Stiles
Slightly towards the sweeter end of the spectrum. Still full of Jackson angst. Lots of wonderful werewolf training and some actual training action from Derek as well.

Teen Wolf
Jackson/Stiles
Lovely writing here, lots of great imagery. Poor Jackson's so full of self-hate.

useless, but not for long by queenitsy
Teen Wolf
Jackson/Stiles
This gets Jackson, it hust gets him, all his awful neuroses, his stress, his angst. It's wonderful and tense. The ending is maybe slightly too sweet, all loose ends hurriedly tied, but the build is lovely.

came home, like a stone (fell heavy into your arms) by queerly_it_is
Teen Wolf
Isaac/Scott
The first section, where Isaac is describing Scott is absolutely perfect. It nails what is so great about Scott. Yes he's occasionally boring and yes he's a complete and utter potato. But he's just so NICE. He's adorable. He really is.

sparkly pens 'verse by mm_coconut
Teen Wolf
Derek/Stiles
Mixed media awesomeness. Sterek doodles hearts and Sterek notes all over his notebook, then accidentally leaves it in Derek's car. This is the most quotable thing I have read in FOREVER.

quietly into the night by loony_lucifer
Alex Rider
Alex/Yassen [underage], [ust], [D/s]
One of those sparking hot gorgeous UST fics. Found thanks to kink_finders in my request for eromenos/pederasty fics, so be aware of the underage aspect. Hot more because of, rather than despite that: power imbalance, Alex is a hostage, kept off-balance and with no real chance of escape, plus Yassen is so unreadable and (hot) scary. UNF. Straight up id-fic, no lie.

habits and companionship by Sarren
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Peter/George, [ust]
The Peter POV is spot on, chock full of 'falling for the straight person' pain and not a little internalised homophobia. It captures the tone of the movie pretty well: all long atmospheric silences and lots left unspoken. There's bucket loads of UST - each touch is imbued with meaning, it's really brilliant. You know the kind of writing I mean, where every sentence drips tension and just a look between characters gets you hot under the collar. Oh yeah.

handle with care by Alchemy Alice
Tinker Tailor
George/Peter
This is really yummy. The propmt is about hair stroking, but there's a delicious D/s understone as well.

magnets, mirrors and misdirection by Lunik
Sherlock/Thor [crossover]
John/Loki
This is WIP and I try not to rec them, but I have a reason here. It's by Lunik so of cpourse the characterisation is perfect, the banter is sharp and everything is wonderful, but the reason I'm reccing is because part one is a perfect example of starting in medias res, and giving backstory without falling in the trap of clunky expo.

five avengers who were hunger games champions (and one who wasn’t) by pearldrop
Avengers/Hunger Games [crossover-fusion]
A real gut punch, this fic. OH BUCKY. OH STEVE. The Clint/ending section is clever

red by waldorph
Avengers
Natasha (Natasha/Hill)
So. Natasha. She's awesome. This is how. Also this is the Maria/Natasha I was wishing for. But mostly it's Natasha and her awesome and her story and her utter win.

we were emergencies by gyzym
Avengers
Clint/Natasha
This is fucking awesome, it's Clint POV and focuses as much on him as it does her, but it's about them as much as anything. Read the warnings.

when I say jump by lc2l
The Avengers
Clint/Natasha (off-screen), Clint/Loki, [mind-control], [D/s], [powerless!kink], [emotional kick]
Clint POV of the movie, with focus on the earlier, mind-fucked part. This is utterly wonderful. Clint's thought processes are perfect and read just right, and he really notices the awful drained drawn-out look Loki has the entire way through. The ending is tragic, but not as gut-wrenching awful as some of this pairing can be.

debt by storynerd
Avengers
Tony/Loki [au]
Towards the fluffier end of the spectrum, started pre-movie, so AU. Loki saves Tony's life and Tony wants to know why.

halo by paxlux
Avengers
Tony/Loki
Tony realises he wants Loki and that puts him at a disadvantage. Great prose, very dream-y and stream-of-consciousness-y without getting confusing. Written from the trailer I think? Somewhat AU either way.

"It’s like perfect engineering, that smile, Tony can read genius in the lazy curve, whether the smile is manufactured or not, and he recognizes it: it feels like any time Tony’s seen the lines come together to form the whole, that instant moment of sheer thought and power, everything is so very easy, blood rushing to light up all the points of his body, I am a motherfucking god, and now, now he’s staring at a motherfucking god who tossed him out a window, and maybe he has glass embedded in his brain.
Tony thinks, Shit, I’m vulnerable."
"

awkward by penknife and better awkward than pretty (the jealous little sister remix) by igrockspock
Hary Potter
Andromeda and Narcissa Black
I love it when remixes dovetail so perfectly. igrockspock's picked out some lovely little pieces from the original and given us a complimentary picture of Narcissa to put against Andromeda. All we need now is one for Bella as well.

Harry Potter and the enemy within and Harry Potter and the chained souls by theowyn
Warning: character death, description of funeral and grieving.
Snape, Harry/Ginny (mostly pre-ship in part 1) Hermione/Ron

Part 1: Good characterisation for the most part. Snape starts off as being a little too evil, but he soon balances out. Well written prose. I like Harry's indecision and general boyish fail. A fair number of 'oh Harry' moments where you want to grab both him and Snape and make them talk. Does a really good job delving Harry's loneliness, ignorance and despair, post-OotP and the reveal of the prophecy.

Part 2: I liked this part slightly less. Not all of it -- the still growing friendship aspect was very good. The whole Snape/Harry idiot dance was realistic, since neither of them are paticularly good at talking about their feelings. My issue was with the plot: Harry's continuing rashness and lack of paranoia, his constant insistence on disregarding rules and danger. Plus all the adults' continual holding of secrets, even after hints have escaped and Harry has a thread to pull on. You'd expect them to know what he's like by now, instead they tell him, 'don't investigate' then act shocked and angry when he... wait for it, investigates. That said, these are issues I have with the books as well, so really my problem is that the fic is just too IC!

resonance trilogy by greengecko
I had issues with Candide the first time I read this, after reading again, I'm not really sure why, there's nothing wrong with her character. I think I was still a bit too invested in the exclusivity of any Snape/Harry relationship, whether sexual or familial. Either way, this is long and plotty, (really long) Part three is a WIP though. I like the worldbuilding and the magic, I like Harry's powers and the way they tie into the plot. The plots themselves are intriguing and mysterious enough to keep you guessing, and the cast of characters are well fleshed out, whether canon, minor or original.

chivalry by branwyn
Harry, Snape, Luna
Starts off with a slightly nicer Snape than usual, which means the turn from hate to ambivalence is over pretty quick and it's more about the development from like to love. Also boasts a wonderful Luna. Deals quite heavily with the repercussions of Harry's abuse at the hands of the Dursleys. PTSD and self-worth issues and so on. The epilogue... well, it's an eilogue, but it's not nearly as bad as canon.

a history of magic by PrinceEdwin
Harry/Severus [time travel]
This is a good one. The plot is pretty straight forward. Read it for the emotion, all that UST and drama in Harry and Severus' relationship. Nice use of an out-of-chronological-order structure.

fall into charybidis by Nimori
Harry/Severus [incest]
Severitus Slash (Snape is Harry's father, slash) fucked up and hot. Harry is cursed, he needs blood-kin to heal him. Snape is willing to make a deal. Gay chicken ensues.

Clint/Darcy
"...but even Jane's multiple fancy degrees couldn't hide the fact that she was fundamentally a Crazy Hot Chick." -- HAHA best description of Jane EVER.

It's electrifying by striped_fic
Clint/Darcy [pitch perfect]

Clint from the Avenger Initiative looked distinctly uncomfortable. "I'm a marksman," he said to the wall behind Jane's shoulder.

Well, that was horseshit. Darcy felt insulted. And a little brainfreezy again; she put down her Slurpee on the filing cabinet behind her. "God, don't be an asshole, Clint. If your superpowers are classified then just say that, don't lie to me."

When she turned around again, he was blushing a little. Actually blushing. "Oh my god," she breathed. "You're not lying, are you? Youareactuallyamarksman," she said in a rush with her hand over her mouth to hide her smile. "That is so lame!"
-- Best Clint/Darcy ever, I love it. The banter, the characterisation. Perfect.

Fright Night
Jerry/Charley [hotness]
HOT HOT. This is what I wanted the film to be. I know, I have unrealistic expectations.

new dawn fades by omphalos
Doctor Who
Doctor/Master [epic], [pulling on the heartstrings] [hotness] [long!fic] [dark] [intense]
Utterly amazing, kept me up way later than I intended. I know barely anything about Doctor Who canon beyond being able to fit names to a handful of faces, but the characterisation in this was detailed and wonderful, totally swept me up in the story and the emotion. I especially loved the sheer need the Doctor has for the Master. Well, actually I love the Master POV as well, so basically I love all of it!

in a lonely place by flamethrower
Star Wars
Obi-Wan Kenobi/Qui-Gon Jinn [au] [long!fic] [dark] [hotness] [secretly!a!good!guy]
AU where Obi-Wan goes undercover in the Sith to expose Sideous. I'm not all up on Star Wars canon, so there was some wiki/google flailing to place names. But most of it was pretty straightforward. Obi-Wan's cahracterisation was brilliant, all cold and clever and opaque. Lots of nice complex plottings, sexy sex scenes and the really good kind ofhurt/comfort. Nice and long

fish out of water by dark_roast
Veronica Mars [crossover] with Lovecraft
Logan (Logan/Veronica, but she's not there in-person for most of the fic) [interesting idea] [long!fic]
Very good Logan character study wrapped up in a plotty, crazy crossover (he is so broken, my God). Author calls it crack, but the story isn't written in a comic or flippant way. I've only a passing knowledge of Lovecraft and I still got most of the references, and hey, that's what wiki is for. The first chapter throws you into a dream sequence, which I found a bit disorienting (as it's meant to be). But the plot itself is perfectly well structured. I liked the OCs a lot.

missing persons by dsudis
Numb3rs
Charlie/Don [long!fic] [amnesia!fic] [kidnapping!fic] [incest] [intense]
Epic long. Really long, totally ate my weekend. I have no familiarity with canon beyond Charlie being that guy from 10 things and solving crimes in some maths related way, but that was no obstacle. The entire fic is well paced, and maintains tension through the emotional plot as well as the action. It just ratchets right up there. Definitely un-put-downable. Really good twisty look at the incest, no brushing away of the issues. Pretty dark in places, when dealing with the trauma, torture and abuse etc. Fair amount of violence.

metal heart by kartography
How I met your Mother
Robin/Barney [pitch-perfect]
Clever, great Robin voice -- awkward commitment-phobe and how she falls into a relationship anyway. Really really hot sex. Nice sprinkles of humour and banter.

toys by litgal
BTVS
Spike/Xander [bdsm] [d/s] [kidnapping!fic] [dark] [long!fic] [drug use]
Good old fashioned evil Spike. pitiful, needy Xander. Not quite Stockholm syndrome, but not far off. Lots of dub-con manipulation. I'm not so into the practical BDSM stuff, (spanking and kneeling and bindings etc.) so there was a bit more pain than I'd like mixed in with the pleasure. Nice slow build - wallowing in Xander's feelings, his shame, his need. Lots of sex/sexual play. Wasn't so interested once the focus shifted to the rest of the cast, ended up skipping from about 3/4 of the way into the second part. But the fic is loooong.

the sniper at the gates of heaven by JoeLawson
The Losers
Ensemble [interesting idea]
Nice use of the 3rd person Omniscient. Definitely fits the tone of the story, disjointed and sprawling, but also about community. Post apocalyptic setting shows how the Losers deal with the repercussions. I like the Aisha character study that's tied into it as well.


TEEN WOLF
Derek/Stiles

rollover by strofeof_genie
[powerless!kink]
"It's not like either of us planned it to go like that, dude! And it is a terrible idea, pretty much for the reasons that we argued about. I mean, I'm not like you, how can I hope to even - okay, why are you transforming holy shit please stop,"
Mmm, that bit where fear suddenly spikes, but we know it's all wrapped up in arousal and a desperate need to submit but the conscious brain won't let you. Also part three has the absolute best Stiles/Chris conversation EVER. I adore it, it's total payback for all the creepy car breaking Chris does in the show.

Stiles nods, confused and wary and generally accepting. "What are you guys, hunters?" Stiles can't help but ask, and the expression on their face is priceless. Stiles is going to get himself shot one day, probably by these people.

civilian disguise by starbeast.

Funny little fic, but such a tease.

the sanctuary by chase_acow
[secretly!a!good!guy] [powerless!kink] [dubcon] [interesting idea]
Takes a little while to really hit its stride, but by the time you reach the cabin it's steady. Has the nice secretly a good guy thing going on, ambiguous on Derek's motivations. Great Stiles voice. I like the AU, interesting set up. Lots of yummy powerless type stuff -- body wanting, brain not quite there yet.

drive carefully and dont forget to fasten your condom by chase_acow
[intoxicated!fic]
This is ADORABLE. and it has drugged wandering hands Stiles, which is awesome. I like the character study of Derek that's slipped in there though, the references to his aimlessness, desperationa nd lonilness

along this road by elandrialore
LOVE THIS. the characterisation is somewhat less angsty than in show. But I love it all the same, the Sheriff pov is wonderful, and the descriptions of Derek are gorgeous.

the pros and cons of freaking out by bumblebee
Pretty hilarious. Stiles having a panic attack, Derek calming him down with kisses and then more. I like Lydia at the end.

bittersweet between my teeth by melfice
Stiles/Derek [intoxicated!fic] [ust] [hotness]
Drugged!Stiles wanting and UST and lots of heat.

WIP by zooeyrye (scroll down for first part)

He doesn’t really want to analyse what the huge teeth marks on his chest mean, either. Knowing that they’ve given he and his dad an extra layer of protection is more than enough for Stiles, and he knows that if he psychoanalyses it further than that, he’s not going to like the unknown territory of Dangerville, which is adjacent to Werewolfville and parallel to Scarytown,

[epic] [magical!bond!fic] [au]
Stiles takes Derek's mark for protection, things progress from there. More serious than most Derek/Stiles usually is. The bond doesn't magically make everything all right. They haven't secretly been lusting after each other for ever. It's a bit of a reversal fic, the bond comes first and the relationship second, it's slow and painful and epic. It all feels very well world-built. Very solid despite branching off into AU territory. I like the darker tone, everyone a bit more ambiguous and complex. The Stiles pov is perfect, tense but still with the edge of Stiles-craziness.

Lovely oblivious Stiles and broody monosyllabic Derek. Stiles goes away to college, Derek keeps on turning up.

Great portrait of Narcissa after Voldemort's fall, scrambling to save her family without losing face.

in loco parentis by dolores_crane
Hermione/Harry, Harry/Snape, Tonks/Hestia (Hermione centric)
Absolutely amazing. Very detailed, well thought out look at the wizarding world, muggle/wizarding tensions, the reality of living in a claustraphobic little boarding school within a claustraphobic little society. And the balancing act Hermione has to play between conflicting interests: being part of the war, school life, growing up, the changing dynamics between the trio, dealing with her family and just generally her place in the world.

Very intense, angsty. Really pulls out the empty, frustration line that the Winklevi and Divya had in the movie. I like the insights, through Tyler, into Cameron. And Tyler was an engaging narrator as well. There's something about the dynamic between those three that is weridly endearing despite all the angst, and the writer has really nailed that.

Starts shaky, but gets better. Writing out the accents mostly works well. In general the voices sound pretty true to the show. Bit too fluffy and happy to fit neatly into canon. But, well, getting Raylan and Boyd into bed together is always going to ask for some selective reading of their canon characters.

STXI
graduate vulcan for fun and profit
Ensemble, gen
“[Amanda Grayson is] in her late forties, a beautiful woman still. She lives with her husband, the ambassador to Earth, on Vulcan. She has multiple PhDs -- one in education, one in computer programming, and a third in xenolinguistics -- and did major work on the Universal Translator. Also, somewhat bizarrely, she's a contributing consultant and sometimes guest star on Starship Sesame Street. Jim squints at the picture. Yes, that is Miss Amanda, who appeared to talk about how we all need talk to each other, no matter how we do it, on Starship Sesame Street when he was growing up. Jim may or may not have wished that Miss Amanda was his mommy, or at least his auntie, or possibly to marry her, when he was five. God.”

HAHA yes. This is just lovely. I enjoy fics that deal with Tarsus, and the way it shaped Jim. And I absolutely adore these extended family network style fics. Love the idea of the Kelvin crew 'adopting' Jim. (Um, excerpt may be misleaeding, Amanda is not main charac, I just thought it was funny. It's actually Vulcan OC and Jim POV).

This is my latest 'rewatch to death' vid. It keeps making me grin. The opening section, muscles, “working my strut.” Love the editing at about 1.00-1.05. And more grins at “girls in stripper heels.” All that writhing naked in the underworld, mmmmm. 2.38 onwards with Rahl in that hooded cloak, closeness, Rahl's O face, apple, almost kiss. Death by slash, basically. And then ending with the boxes of Orden and hitting my powerless!kink dead on, twice over. With the last time being the bad guy winning? Seriously. This vid UNDOES ME.
