This morning I saw in a Retweet that @cee_m was requesting recs for fave AU or Constructed Reality vids, and I felt like obliging.  It's been a while since I did a vid rec post.  It got too big for a tweet though, so here's a post with recs.  :)  I'm going by the definition here at Fanlore: A constructed reality vid recontextualizes footage from the source (and sometimes footage from outside sources) in order to tell a story that did not happen in canon. [1]   I really wanted to include some Trek vids that combine AOS/TOS footage, but felt in the end that didn't count as outside footage, or excessive manipulation of the source.  However, I did include shipper vids that use manips and outside footage to sell the ship, since I feel that counts.  So, my recs:

Battlestar: Galactica/Farscape
Hurricane by [personal profile] laurashapiro , Starbuck/Aeryn
Very hot, and also an extremely interesting pairing that I think would really work.


House/Sherlock BBC
Cat's in the Cradle by [livejournal.com profile] daasgrrl
Creates an entirely realistic Father & Son relationship between House and Sherlock.


Inception
Under the Sheets by gaby0189x Arthur/Eames
HOT!  An excellent story of their relationship.

Teardrops by gaby0189x Dom/Mal, Arthur/Eames
The story of how the four came together, and the aftermath of the movie.  Beautiful, touching, heartbreaking.


Merlin
There Are Legends by [livejournal.com profile] ras_elased Merlin/Arthur
Phenomenal tale of love through the ages. 


Smallville
I Swear by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny, [livejournal.com profile] greensilver, and [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain, Clark/Lex
OMG if you haven't seen this you need to.  It is CRACK, crack to be watched in a space safe for loud noises.

 



Supernatural
Family Business by [livejournal.com profile] newkidfan, Dean/Castiel
An amazing AU in which Castiel is an assassin and Sam and Dean are the FBI agents hunting him down.

I Want You by Maichan2, Sam/Dean
I love the way Maichan manipulates the footage to make it look like the boys are having an actual conversation about their relationship, with Sam asking and Dean saying no, until he gives in. Maichan actually makes a super-hot 'make the boys do it' type vid into a realistic study of their relationship and how Dean would respond to Sam's requests.  I very nearly put all of Maichan's Sam/Dean vids in this list, but I decided to pick just one since they are all pretty similar.  It was hard to pick.


Torchwood
Papa Don't Preach by fan-eunice and greensilver, Jack/Ianto
Jack's made up his mind, he's keeping his baby.  This is the most adorable and squeeful thing ever.
 

X-Men: First Class
Never Tear Us Apart
by Maichan2, Eric/Charles
Gorgeous, gorgeous use of many different sources to create a relationship through the centuries.  Maichan says "Basically, this vid is an excuse for boys in cravats, suits, and uniforms."

First: Karl Urban is melting my brain. Thalialunacy posted these two interview videos in her LJ the other day and they rock! The first one is funny as hell, but the second one has Karl Urban speaking, and OMG THAT ACCENT!! How did I FORGET that he was from New Zealand?!? How did I forget from all the LotR interviews and DVD Behind-the-Scenes stuff? I'm ashamed to admit it since I'm a pretty big LotR fan for years now, but I really did. Now I get to revise my mental image of him to include that accent ;) That makes everything better!
So, moving on to the fic that did me in:
Don't Say My Name by [livejournal.com profile] simons_flower ; NC-17, RPS, a little D/s: Chris wakes with a sore jaw, a heavy arm around his waist and little memory of the night before. This fic is awesome for the mystery the writer starts out with, and for Toppy!Karl! Toppy!Karl was a fave of mine from Lotrips, I'm so glad to see he's back. There is more Karl/Chris over at [livejournal.com profile] pinecity.

After that fic I went on a Reboot RPS spree. I found this one and the previous one over at[profile] slash_elitistsThere are some really great recs there. First up: The Old Man and the Frat Boy by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy ; NC-17, RPS: Beer. Jokes about sororities. Sex. An almost-typical Tuesday. Chris talks Karl into playing Beer Pong. This one has funny dialogue and a great twist, which I won't ruin for you ;) But she links to another fic in that 'verse and It's fantastic too; I got all caught up in reading it and forgot about posting!   ETA:  she and [livejournal.com profile] starsfell keep writing more chapters, and it's gotten amazingly good.  Not only is the pr0n hot, it's gotten emotionally intense; it's fucking fantastic.  This is probably my favorite ST RPS series.  The latest installment with links to the previous ones is here.

More Fun With The Kiwi Bastard by [livejournal.com profile] smutjunkie ; NC-17, RPS, D/S, spanking, talking dirty: YEAH THERE IS NO PLOT. Basically, Chris and Karl and lots of hot hot sex. More Toppy!Karl.

Dancehall Drug by [livejournal.com profile] anythingever ; NC-17, RPS: Voyeurism, exhibitionism... Zach and Chris go to a club together and some dirty, sexy shenanigans ensue. This is what we’d call PWP.

One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato, Four by [livejournal.com profile] smutjunkie  (link to prequel at top of fic); NC-17, RPS, threesom and foursome: Anton and his Kiwi Bastard set their sights on Captain Fine. Porn ensues. That about enough plot for everyone? Anton's the evil sex genius that gets Chris into bed with he and Karl, and then Zach jumps in. Effing Hot, plus wordy humor.

So I'm starting to get the whole Chekov/Anton thing, thanks to the fic above and [livejournal.com profile] xela_fic's Little Black Dress 'Verse. NC-17, slave!fic, kinky: Chekov is Kirk's slave in this one, and the pairings are Chekov/everyone. Not joking. This is her gratuitous smut verse, don't expect anything really in depth here. It's all about getting Chekov spectacularly laid.

Just a Thing by [livejournal.com profile] lafemmechatte ; R: McCoy/Chekov, Everyone has a defining thing - Chekov's is seducing McCoy. McChekov (But not your mother's McChekov) Manipulative Chekov, but his plan may backfire on him. Excellent take on Chekov, great inner voice for him.

Black Holes and Revelations by [livejournal.com profile] rubynye ; R, dub-con, Chekov/Original Tentacular Character, Chekov/Sulu, Chekov/Math: "No wonder we converse so well, comes the reply. Mathematics is the universal language." Very interesting alien, the Chekov/Sulu is very sweet, but the Chekov/Math is fantastic.


Listening To Hear Where You Are by [livejournal.com profile] frostfire_17 ; NC-17, threesome, crossdressing: Kirk loses a bet and has to wear the female uniform to a bar. Spock and Uhura just can't resist him. This one made me laugh and gasp.  It's damn kinky, and so very good.


Losing Touch by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash ; R, McCoy/Jocelyn; McCoy wakes up one day, on earth, still married to his wife, who thinks he's insane when he starts talking about star ships and someone named Jim Kirk. Beautiful descriptions of Jocelyn and Bones and the life he might have had. This one damn near made me cry.

Downloaded Series by [livejournal.com profile] ennyousai_fic ; R for sex and violence: McCoy is the seventh Cylon model. Excellent crossover with Battlestar Galactica, the writer got both the Trek and BSG worlds and characters spot on, mixing them together in a way that feels very real. Bones is excellently written and his relationship with Jim is just heartbreaking.

5 Times Kirk had to Watch and the One Time He Hit That Like the Fist of Angry God by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash ; NC-17, exibitionism: sequel to Keep Your Clothes On! wherein Aliens keep making Spock and Bones do it, and Jim has to watch. Hilarious.

Every Mountain and Hill Shall Be Made Low by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy ; NC-17, telepathy: Bones is given a surprise gift by a space anomaly. And in German, ‘gift’ means ‘poison’. Teaser: Oh sweet heavens to Betsy, he has not just been hypothesizing the extent of his captain’s flexibility. Amazingly hot, very sweet, fantastic.

Come Together by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash ; NC-17, Ponn Farr: Trope crossover! Kirk and Spock get bodyswapped, and Spock's body enters Pon Farr while Kirk's still in it. Only, Spock is already with Bones... Excellent way to get the three of them together, and fantastic tag-team on Bones.

I'm feelin the fic love today and thought I'd rec some of my faves, plus one vid and one podfic.

I was recently reminded of how much I LOVE the Convergence 'verse by [livejournal.com profile] shaenie  (fic) and I felt the need to rec it for posterity.  It is my favorite lotrips fic hands down, and some of my favorite fic of all time.  In it Billy and Dom get together and then include Elijah. NC-17, pretty heavy BDSM and D/s, gorgeous relationship development with lots of tension followed by excellent sex.  She's a skilled writer that imbues the BDSM with love and intimacy, and throws in the angst to really hit your heart.  This is a threesome fic and it's probably the best one I've read.  Usually threesomes have a feel of "the more the merrier" to me.  It doesn't feel real to me, it feels like porn.  That's fine (no problems with porn ;) I just don't get very emotional about them usually.  But in this one the three of them need to be together, it's not a plot device to turn me on, it feels natural and real.  The same with the BDSM.  It's not done for kink, it's what they need.  She has a way of writing that makes it so real to me, I get emotionally moved, not just turned on.  It makes Elijah's journey of discovery so breathtaking.  I can't urge you enough to read it.

Here is what I wrote to her in my feedback for the latest installment:  "I don't even have the words to tell you how much this fic gets to me. I LOVE the intensity of emotion, from lust, passion, tenderness, love and being overwhelmed by them all. That's what makes all the pain and struggle for dominance and angst so damn good for me. Somehow everything you write them doing emphasizes their emotions and motivations, distilling them down to their pure essence. One of the other commenters said that you get a feeling of there being more than just what's on the page, somehow more to the characters and motivations. I liked that, it's so true. It's like the relationship is actually real, it feels so *right*. The way you reveal what you choose to show us excites and fulfills me, yet leaves me hungry for more. It is a profoundly satisfying mix, and it ensures that I will be rereading these for years."

You can read the series at the AO3 Here all at once, or at her LJ with the following links:

Cusp: Part One, Two, Three

Calibration


Sacrifice by Josephine Darcy.  BSG fic (original series), R, Starbuck/Apollo:  Lots of kissing. 
Plot: Starbuck and Apollo have to pretend to be married to trade for the fuel that the fleet so desperately needs.  It's a beautiful fic, sweet and tender.  I loved it, all of it.  I love the kissing, it was hot and romantic and tender all rolled up together.  I love the way Starbuck recognizes his feelings for Apollo through his physical actions, in a way that his rational brain never allowed him to realize.  I think all the handholding and hugging is very romantic.  I love the way Apollo craves Starbuck's touch, even a simple touch on the cheek or his hand in his hair.  Her descriptions of him in their more tender moments were so beautiful.  I have to admit that I am only familiar with the new show so I see Jamie Bamber in her descriptions of Apollo, but they fit Jamie perfectly to me.  It's all about opening up to love and how sweet that can be.  Even if you don't watch Battlestar Galactica you can read it.  The author gives enough back-story about the characters that the relationship will still be meaningful to you.


Snow On The Sahara by [livejournal.com profile] absrip.  SPN vid R (also on YouTube here):  
"This is a vid about the aftermath of evil!Sam, told from Dean's POV. "   It is officially the vid that will make me watch Supernatural. I have resisted so far because I don't do horror(I scare way too easily and the show has been a bit intense for me) but this is so beautiful I have to see more of the relationship.  Plus Jensen is hot as fuck - that may be my real reason. There is hurt and angst and kissing and hugging - the vidder uses several manips and they are so good I really couldn't tell if they were manips or part of the show.  Absolutely gorgeous.  I usually don't do vid slash because fic can be so much more graphic (thus so much more fun :) and I'm not really into Wincest, but this one was done so well it just melted my heart.

So Snow was the straw that broke the camel's back, but [livejournal.com profile] strippedpink's J2 fics have been buttering me up for the fall.  Particularly her New OTP 'Verse.  NC-17.  It's amazingly sexy.  It's Smallville-era!Jensen and Gilmore Girls-era!Jared and how they get together before the show.  It's got really sexy dialog and it's hot and dirty and just so good.


I recently heard my first podfic.  It was Rebuilding Babel by [livejournal.com profile] fiercelydreamed, read by [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek.  SGA McKay/Sheppard, R: 
Rodney is injured and looses the ability to understand language, and to speak it. John helps him learn to use an ancient tool to communicate in a very unusual way.  She utterly breaks Rodney down to his very core and exposes his soul, and then gives him John to rebuild himself around.  It's so beautiful in a heartwrenching way.  Brilliant concept, and so well written. Dramatic with lots of angst, but also the occasional funny part to lighten the mood. Very well read, the reader lends an urgency to the story that is spot on.  I loved it and stayed up way too late to finish it.

Dog Tag Porn by [livejournal.com profile] xela_fic - SGA fic McKay/Sheppard NC-17: 
Major submission by Rodney, heavy BDSM and an unusual collar.  I love the way the author gets inside their heads.  Rodney's submission feels real and makes *me* feel like flying, and John's so perfect as the top who knows how to push all of Rodney's buttons, as the one in charge.  So so good.


Submission Games By R. Cooper - CSI fic NC-17 Nick/Greg:  Greg comes home early and Nick is surprised by some things, namely Greg in a skirt and collar.  Crossdressing, kink, first time for Nick, minor D/s issues.  I really love the way this one is written.  Nick is shocked to find out about this side of Greg, and the shock and later anticipation just comes through so well in the writing.  It feels exhilarating to read about Nick discovering how much he responds to Greg.

You can find more of the fic that I love at my delicious account, and check out my 5star tag for my absolute favorites.
