Supernatural [outsider pov]
OC, Sam, Dean
Ruthie is the only survivor of a werewolf attack, she insiste Sam and Dean take her with them and learns to becom a hunter. Awesome outside pov on Sam and Dean. Ruthie's a great character, the good kind of OC, believable and layered and fitting very neatly into the canon.

Sherlock/John [au] [interesting idea]
The one where Sherlock lives backwards. Complex, twisty and very satisfying. I was in a short-attention span mood, flicking through a whole load of fics, but this, despite its length and need for the reader to focus, managed to grab me and suck me right in. Engrossing and very well written.

performance in a leading role by mad_lori
Sherlock/John [au] [long!fic]
Where they're both actors. I'm not one for established relationships or talking about feelings, so I ended up skipping a chunks from after they got together, but the lead up was great. I love the insider-feel to the setting. The whole thing is meticulously researched. The first part, with the filming, was all wonderful, and the later press related parts are great as well. I got very choked up when reading all the touching 'being true to yourself' bits about them and their relationship. The characterisation is very well done, still recogniseable and there are some wonderful lines. I love the minor characters as well, Harry, Sally, Clara, but especially Irene.

AVENGERS

magnetic by boombangbing
Steve/Pepper/Tony [yummy happy] [fuck yeah]
Classic epic believable long Avengers fic. I love these and hope people keep on writing them. Part one is adorable UST and Steve being adorkable and sweet. Wanting so much and trying to untangle exactly what it is he wants, TOny being Tony. And Pepper organising everything in that awesome way. Part two is more Pepper being awesome. Very awesome. And part three, despite being Tony POV is very 'Go Team!'

Lovely Loki characterisation hot and ocd and slightly terrifying. Darcy is, of course, wonderful.

Darcy/Loki (eventually) WIP [fuck yeah], [pitch perfect]

I try not to rec WIPs but this is just perfect. The voices, the dynamic. Yummy and funny and hot. And the whole kink-meme meta aspect is spot on.

BLADE TRINITY

Blade Trinity
Abby/King [long!fic] [intense] [ust] [hurt/comfort]
Hurt/comfort-ish but not exactly. The opening scene is lovely and tense, the pace calms for the gradual progress from enemy to friend, and then picks up again as the plot starts to twist. Nice fast pacing towards the end, kept me up late readong. Lots of lovely character/relationship manouvering throughout - trust vs betrayal. Really nice work on the main three of Abby/King/Frank. Lovely slow build of the relationship, with lots of UST and very hot, sparky, sex.

King/Drake, King, Deacon, Drake, Blade [insanity] [non-con] [dub-con]
noncon/dub con depending on how you look at it. Not a happy King/Drake fic. Nice and long and plotty. I like the craziness in King's head.

blood magic and a shade of infinite by manic_intent
King/Drake [au] where King is still a vamp.
Good banter from King, very sexy blood/desire elements. Solid characterisation.

the morning after/the night before by sangga
King [pitch perfect]
The disjointed structure, out of chronological order, emphasises how King felt after getting the cure as well as the time after the Daystar, both game changing moments with a weird re-ordering of priorities following after. This catches the atmosphere very well.

Captain America
Steve
OH STEVE. Very clearly articulated vid showing everything Steve's lost. Very sad, very poignant. I really love the way the vid is structured, the build up for each of his losses, the framing through use of fade to blacks and then the final repetition of black and white scenes to really bring it home.

Harry Potter feat. Glitch Mob by Grable 424
Harry Potter
I always thought HP would go well to Glitch mob, all those laser-like fight scenes. I'm not 100% won over by the canon audio used in the vid, but it's not that it's badly done, just not a technique I'm keen on. The vid itself is very slick; jerky and sharp and perfect to the music.

"...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.

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!

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.

How I met your Mother
Robin/Barney [pitch-perfect]

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.

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.

Pretty hilarious. Stiles having a panic attack, Derek calming him down with kisses and then more. I like Lydia at the end.

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.

“I’m not even going to bother anymore,” he tells Clint, once he can properly move his jaw again. Clint looks at him and nods in something almost like sympathy.

Mal, ensemble. Constructed narrative pre-film. [au], [epic]
Perfect song choice. Epic and inexorable, amazing build. Very good meld of different sources, feels like a seamless narrative. Love the colour work. I love the emotional build, the laughter and smiles at the beginning and the way it all shatters until we're at film canon.

TRUE BLOOD
Ensemble, [interesting idea]
Clever idea, works even better on the second watching. I'm always going to love anything that has Eric/Godric in, but, just very clever lyric/clip matching. Some lovely, 'oh yes, this is what True Blood is' moments. Some nice complex/ugly relationships in there with series three knowledge of Bill/Sookie, and with the whole Maryann part. In fact I love how you get this entirely different spin on each relationship, while they're all fundamentally the same, blood and power.

Oh clever. I love that I didn't get what the song was until about half way through and had a sudden OH RIGHT! moment. It is a perfect choice, the song itself, the cover. The editing is sharp. The layering of little hints and glances is awesome. I love the pacing, very quick and energetic.

MERLIN

truth is a whisper by seperis
Merlin/Arthur
I love Merlin being in control in the bedroom. Really, really love it. It's so refreshing to get this dynamic. Very very hot and I love the possessiveness.

Merlin/Arthur [intoxicated!fic]
I love having the POV character unaware of what's going on with everyone else. The reader can see Arthur's piecing something together, but it doesn't all come together until the end. Drunk!Merlin is adorable.

arcane asylum by new_kate
Merlin/Arthur [au] [epic] [longfic]
AU where Arthur is framed for a magical crime and sent to the magical version of SONA. Merlin makes him his bitch in a very affable and awkward, Merlin sort of way. There's revolution and magic and lots of angst and drama. I love that it's all complex and difficult. People who hate Uther and people who want revenge, terrorist vs freedom fighter type thing. Brilliant tying of the canon myths/plots and characters into the AU setting. Merlin's backstory in particular, is utterly gorgeous and heartbreaking.

Merlin/Arthur [reveal!fic]

to be known by sometimesophie
[pulling on the heartstrings]
The one where Merlin vomits up his magic. Good and angsty. I like this kind of reveal, the one that starts with a sword at the throat. The whole vomiting up/losing magic thing, is just. Really painful. Poor Merlin.

denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance by mellacita
The one with dead Balinor. Yummy angsty reveal!fic.

the tale of the sea serpent by seperis
The one with the sea serpent. First part, with all the chronology jumping, is worth reading twice. I like Arthur's POV a lot. He's all earnest and trying so hard and so very in love. And I love the idea of Arthur as King of the magical creatures as well.

revelation by lamardeuse
The one where Arthur has a beard. Very sweet and adorable. Love the so very in-love Merlin POV in this one.

the definition of a life saved by shinetheway
The one where Merlin hits his head. I like the trippy/dreamy/painful atmosphere with Merlin still recovering from his injury.

BATMAN

Bruce/Jim [dark] [ust] [hotness] [au]
Deliciously dark Batman AU. Very very very very hot. Unfortunately abandoned, but it gives you some resolution. Love the darker!Gotham world building. Like the idea with little Jimmy and the similarities Bruce sees in him. Love Jim, earnest, adorable Jim. The page style is eye-killing. Enlarge the text.

The Antichrist needs an heir. Post/during apocalyptic world. Sort of ambiguously dark!Sam. Awesome OFC, love the outsider POV.

Fuck, fuck. That's just. Absurdly hot.

Sam/Dean [epic] [interesting idea]
Totally epic. Awesome idea. Great writing as usual, very intense.

the air moves in to fill the spaces where my body's been and sequel by britomart_is
Sam/Dean [ust] [hotness]
My God. The UST in this is unbelievable. I prefer the first one, mainly because I like reading UST over actual sex.

Sam thumbs the drop of cherry from his cheek, sucks it into his mouth and groans appreciatively. “That’s good, Dean.”

Dean knows perfectly well that Sam hates cherry flavor, and any minute now they’re going to drift into oncoming traffic and die in a blaze of steel and flame and unresolved sexual tension, because Dean’s looking at Sam, not the road.

Sam/Dean [future!fic] [omfg cuteness]
Oh this is absolutely adorable. I like future fic/characters growing old, but seriously fic at this level of adorableness is a rare thing.

Aw team fuckup. I'm head-canoning this into a couple of years before Looks on Tempests

Sam/Dean [yummy happy]
Oh yes, very very much yes. It's the perfect wonderful happy ever after, 'true love solves all' sort of way you want it to end.
