A while back I requested fanfic recs for my bookclub book choice.  I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to update y'all on the event, but in case you're still interested here it is.  Thank you [livejournal.com profile] fleete and [livejournal.com profile] lazlet for the recs!

Fanfic comes from an impulse to expand upon the original work that inspired the fic writer.  It can be written to fill in a gap in 'canon' (this is how fans refer to the original work that inspired the fanfic), to correct what the fan sees as an error in canon, to ask ‘what if?’ and take that new scenario anywhere the fic author wants to go with it.  Fanfic authors also love exploring the mundane details of regular life that you don’t always get to see in canon - ex. what is daily life like for an Avenger?  Also, pairing anyone together in romances that weren’t in the canon.  Fanfic is what you get when someone explores their ideas in a publication that is not restricted by traditional publishing.
 
Reading fanfic differs from reading original works of fiction because it is based so heavily on the canon.  Most fanfic won’t include quite the same level of detail you’ll get from original fic because the writer presumes that almost everyone reading already knows what X character looks and sounds like, or the details about Y event that was so important to the story or character.  Therefore, I’ve tried to pick fandoms (what we call the communities that build up around a particular canon) that most of you have at least some passing knowledge of, or can watch relatively easily.  The exception to that ‘rule’ is the Alternate Universe genre, which is where the fic author puts the characters into a brand new situation completely unrelated to the one in the original work.  Taking the characters from "Lord of the Rings" and writing about them in outer space is an example.  This makes almost any fandom accessible to someone who has never seen or read the canon, and I’ve included one in my selection - "A Place Where We Only Say Goodbye".
 
As a whole, there are no censuring limits on what can be written in a fic.  Fanfic writers often include explicit violence or sex, or content which can be disturbing in any number of ways.  To the best of my knowledge none of the stories I’ve picked are explicitly erotic, but some contain other mature content.  This content is often communicated to readers through the 'Tags' or in the 'Notes' at the top of the story and is usually thorough.  I've included relevant tags in the story headers below.  If you have any questions about any given story please ask me about it.  I've included some notes about each fic selection (including the length of time it would take you to watch the source material for each story), and indicated them with asterisks.  Reviews by other Fanfic readers are italicized and have been gently edited to remove 'spoilers'.
 

My Fanfic Bookclub Submission List


Freezer Burn by Domenika Marzione | The Avengers all fandoms | 194,178 Words, ~746 pages | Action/Adventure

The adventures of Steve Rogers, defrosted soldier, who is missing time but not really all that lost. He's got a surprisingly broad knowledge of lettuces, a working grasp of modern technology, and may or may not be using both to mess with his teammates and save the world.
**Set directly after The Avengers movie, run time 143 minutes.  It also includes stuff from the comics, but I don't think you need knowledge of the comics to enjoy the story.

“This is possibly the most articulately adult, mature, rational, and believable fic I have ever read.
I am so intrigued by the slow build of crime/thriller elements, the artful way you threw in the politics of agencies and made steve NOT. DUMB. but in a rational way without being bound by hyperbole emotions.
Also the perfect balance of the avengers being a decent team but also having their own lives- as a group of people in their 30's-40's is wont to do. LOVE. IT.I feel like i'm reading a sydney sheldon novel with how believable your male leads are in action and thought, and how matter-of-fact your female leads are.
The military life details and understandings are EXCELLENT. I am engaged to an airforce engineer and I truly appreciate that you have given this facet of steve's life depth, insight, and details!” – Elemenohp

“Breathtakingly done. Thank you for writing such a fantastic, immersive, engrossing story with a layer of realism you rarely find in the canon works, nevermind the fanfiction. I've been enthralled with this since I started it, and have been reading as voraciously as my schedule would allow. You do good work.” – PrimaryFeather

“Wow, that was seriously epic. Loved all the day-to-day details of Steve situating himself in the "now," with the food details (OMG, totally drooling over all the food descriptions) and picking up art again. You write great characters - loved all the team interaction, the insight into Natasha and Bruce, Tony and the way different people react to him - all very believable and honest. Loved your OCs as well (um, I think they're OC's; I'm not well versed on the comics), and all the bureaucratic/ military hierarchy details came though very well. Thank you for sharing this!” – joyouslee

“I am really enjoying the MCU but have never read any of the comics (don't get on with the media), so I suspect there are lots of references I'm missing, but conversely there is undoubtedly benefit in being able to be surprised by what happens next more so than I might otherwise be.
Your writing is always like catnip to me, I always end up more invested in your characters(/characterisations) and universes than the source materiel. As always, I am in love with your characterisation, your long and wonderfully plotty story arc, the funny, the accuracy and realism you bring; you have this knack for lots of detail without unnecessary exposition, and, particularly in the more person centred scenes, leaving just the right amount up to the reader's imagination, and that brevity always seem to pack a more powerful punch.” – vonknibble

“Wow, this was without a doubt the most ambitious, amazing, detailed and awesome story I have ever read in Avengers fandom. It took me ages to get through (which is a good thing!!) and I don't even know what to flail most about. The whole thing is simple awe-inspiring. Thanks so much for writing and sharing it.” – pulangaraw


A Place Where We Only Say Goodbye by weezly14 | Dr. Who | 59,486 words, ~245 pages | Angst, Romance
""And I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never have lain beside at all."  He's served Rose Tyler coffee almost every day for a year, but he's never worked up the courage to really talk to her. Then he finds himself stuck repeating the same day a year in the past. Is this a chance at a different ending?"

**Fanfic can take the characters from the show and place them in a completely different setting so you can see how they stand up to entirely new circumstances. This is called an Alternate Universe - in this case it's a Coffee Shop AU, which is a common fanfic trope.  It's a great way to get into a new fandom if you haven't watched the show because you don’t need any knowledge of the show to understand the plot of the story, as is the case for this fic.  The 'Angst' tag is often used for situations of emotional difficulty.  If you're interested in checking out the characters you can watch Dr. Who 2006 (Season/Series2) on Amazon Prime, iTunes, or Netflix - a good one to start with might be School Reunion.  Runtime for each episode is about 45 minutes.

"God, I am so in love with this verse. And I'm going to be that person who'll suggest you just go right ahead and sell this to publishers. Get an editor, an agent, anyone. Because if something like Twilight or 50 Shades or Mortal Instruments got published, I don't see why the hell this can't. Because the premise, the pacing, the characterizations... as a fellow writer and storyteller, I am just so, so in love with this.
At one point, I was reminded of Audrey Niffenegger's book, The Time Traveler's Wife. I know that the plots are quite different, but this story has encouraged a similar level of emotional attachment to the protagonists as with that book. I do not doubt for a moment that if you let someone who has not even heard of Doctor Who or the term 'fanfiction' read this, it would still be much appreciated. I could go on and on, but let me just end it with a thank you. Thank you for giving us this absolutely wonderful story. I look forward to the day you'll get to treat us to a brand new literary journey with The Doctor and Rose." – rarelycanon

 
Dudly Dursley and the New Normal by alikat522 | Harry Potter | 53,167 words, ~226 pages | Drama/Tragedy
Bad things happen. Life gets strange. Dudley tries to carve out a little bit of normality in a world that has gone mad around him.

**Fanfic can redeem characters that are portrayed as bad or difficult in the book by putting them through events that give them the opportunity for growth.  This one is not offered as a download at Fanfiction.net.  If it is chosen you can either read it on the web, or I will make sure an ebook copy is available to anyone who wants it.  There are 7 books and 8 movies in the series - obviously a lot to watch if you're starting fresh.  I know the club read most of the books together and I think most of you have seen all the movies so I thought I'd take a chance and include it.  We'll see if it gets picked :)

“Thanks for this unusual story! I think what I liked most is how you stayed in character for Dudley AND combined that with the important after war themes. Great original characters too.” – Mari83

“An excellent tale, well told. I thought you did a good job of providing a realistic journey for Dudley to choose to step up instead of passively fading away. I like that you ended with hope and that you didn't brush away the aftershocks of the war and the cultural divides as if everything would go back to just fine after Voldemort was dead. All in all, thank you for writing!” – Phoenix Flight

“Great story. Dudley's journey just fits - no hurried redemption, no overdose of angst, a good, logical mix of drama and evolving characters.” – Starfox5

“Great story! I loved the format you used with news articles at the end of each chapter. And the final one - Molly's article was a perfect ending to the story, put the message of the whole fic into perspective. You are so right about Dudley's "side character" status, which is not only limited to canon. Even in the HP fanfic community, his story is rarely explored and his character seldom a protagonist. So bravo! Great fic all-around!” – Inexplicably Waiting

“I have not read such fanfiction in a very long time. Incredible portrayal of characters. Dudley's transformation from Big D was the in-depth reveal that I always wanted from jkr. And making him a werewolf? Clever. I also loved how you let readers learn what happened to other characters though Dudley did not realize the significance. Very well done. I will be keeping my eyes open for new posts!” – bloombaby26

“I was lucky enough to stumble across your story today and got to read it all at once. It was heartbreaking and warming all at once.
Your characters didn't pull a deus ex machina and make everything perfect at the end or "magically" make everything better by getting involved, but they did make a difference by moving past apathy and taking action.
You showed Percy finding the cause he was looking for. Loose ends that bothered me in the books were neatly wrapped up or proved to not be loose ends at all. And, quite importantly, Dudley found a new normal. That's not an insignificant achievement.” – Code Aster


An Avalanche Of Detour Signs by gyzym | Sherlock (TV) | 56,053 Words, ~267 pages | Romance, Sexual Trauma
In which Molly Hooper gets a job, gets a degree, breaks a heart, has her heart broken, falls in love, keeps a secret, saves a life, runs a morgue, falls apart, pulls it together, and finds exactly what she didn't know she was looking for--not necessarily in that order.

**Fanfic gives minor characters, particularly women in this case, a lot more life than they are given onscreen.  An audiobook version of this story is available here, recorded by magicranberries.  This story comes after the season finale of Season/Series 2 of BBC Sherlock.  Each season consists of 3 1.5 hour episodes, totaling almost 9 hours for both seasons.  You can stream/buy them on Amazon Prime, iTunes, and Netflix, or you can borrow my copies if needed.

"How do you take these characters that we know relatively little about, and breathe life into them, and make us care about them, and put them in relationships that are loving and wonderful and amazing and fully complement the characters?" - Wex

"What an utterly gorgeous piece of work--the story and the art. Love and adoration to you both! I wasn't intending to read all of this in one go, but there wasn't any way to stop. The whole arc unveiled itself so smoothly, so effortlessly--just spot on, from start to finish." – sheffiesharp


Kista by Jane Land | Star Trek Original Series | 94,060 Words, ~365 pages | Romance, Drama
Spock and Christine are stranded on a planet with a paleolithic technology level, they have to adapt to the local culture and a relationship develops between them.

Kista is "...an attempt to rescue one of Star Trek's female characters from an artificially imposed case of foolishness. Try to think objectively for a minute about what we know of Christine Chapel's background, education, accomplishments... and you will come up with a far more interesting character than she was ever allowed to be...I like her. I hope you do too."

**Kista was originally published in 1986 by Jane Land in a Zine she put together herself and mailed out to those who wrote to request it.  This was the way fanfiction was widely dispersed before the internet came about, and the way fans kept in touch with each other.  The story has since been put up on the web, where you can download your own copy.  It does contain romance with at least a couple of sex scenes, but best I can tell they aren’t explicit.  You can read about Chapel here (including some of the most significant episodes for the Chapel/Spock relationship) and you can stream/buy original episodes from Amazon Prime, Netflix, or iTunes, or stream the episodes for free on YouTube.  Each episode runs 50 minutes.

“So good to see this wonderful piece of writing published here, and now easy to read!” – Jackie

 

We Two Alone by Shoreleave | Star Trek 2009 | 101,877 Words, ~350 pages | Angst, Slavery, Major Character Illness/Injury, Hurt/Comfort, Dark, Drama, Action/Adventure, Friendship
"Academy fic. Dr. Leonard McCoy thinks he has nothing in common with command-track cadet Jim Kirk, until a series of events forces them together. When a simple training mission is derailed into a seemingly hopeless situation, both have to learn to trust one another, and they’ll need all their wits and survival skills to stay alive.
Author's Note: I love plot holes, and here’s a biggie:

Pike: “And if all else fails, fall back and rendezvous with the fleet in the Laurentian system. Kirk, I’m promoting you to first officer.”

Huh? I mean, that doesn’t make any sense! Jim’s just an untried cadet, and surely there are more seasoned officers on the Enterprise who should be first officer. Unless… does Pike know something about Kirk that we don’t? If he does, it must be pretty compelling…

That got me thinking, and it was the inspiration for this story."

**Fanfic of reboots re-imagines the cannon, just like the reboot itself does. In this case, Jim Kirk's time in Starfleet Academy and on Tarsus IV.  'Hurt/Comfort' is a tag that indicates one of the characters has gotten sick or injured, often significantly, and is cared for by another character.  This is a prequel to the 2009 movie, which runs 126 minutes.

"Hello new head canon. This was absolutely fantastic! One of the best survival stories I've ever had the pleasure of reading!" – dentalfloss

"Superb characterization, clinically tidy, excellent work with the storyline, I'm definitely coming back to this one later. Also, I would totally watch this movie. Even if it wasn't Star Trek." - casicastiel


pslasher: (Default)
[Note: I wrote this up at the beginning of 2012 but didn't post it then. It felt too... self-indulgent, and way too TMI. I felt too raw to put this out there. Now, 8 months later, I'm feeling a lot better about the state of my life, so it doesn't feel so difficult, or like such an enormous mistake.]

There are times when I’m in an emotional funk, when it feels like the wheels are spinning but I’m going nowhere. At those times I look to fic as an escape. Sometimes I want something darker to read, something with some bite to it. Something to kick me out of my funk - or maybe to heighten it, it’s hard to tell. Either way, the fluff and romance and rainbows just isn’t cutting it when I’m in that mood. That’s when I look for Hurt/Comfort, or heavy angst. Sometimes I look for comfort, or at least angst that's heavy on the comfort part, but most of my comfort fics have already been recced elsewhere in my journal, so I won’t re-rec them. So that means this list is heavy on the hurt and angst.

I’m starting each section out with the fics that pack the biggest emotional punch for me, which mostly means the really hurty ones, and ending with more comfort. There is comfort in most of these (especially those towards the end of the list), but a hell of a lot of hurt, too. There's also probably TMI for my general emotional state over the last year or so, but I tried to keep it from being too bad.


 
The Hurt )

My Father Before Me by [livejournal.com profile] telleer: SGA, McKay/Sheppard, R, major character death (in the past), kid!fic
Summary: Even after twenty years, Rodney still has no idea how to raise children. Futurefic.
Author's notes: In all the kidfic I have ever read, Rodney and John are the perfect parents. At some point in February, I got bored with the concept and decided to put my own spin on it.

This has the distinction of being top of the list of fics that absolutely wrecked me. It’s future kid!fic in which everything has gone wrong for Rodney. It’s raw and hurtful, and I sobbed after reading it - I literally cried myself to sleep. It’s like telleer took my most persistent fears about raising children and wrapped them up with my OTP and delivered them to me with a bow on top. This one is pretty much for those times I just need to cry.


In For Repairs by [livejournal.com profile] shinychimera and [livejournal.com profile] yeomanrand (LJ, AO3): Star Trek: AOS, Kirk/McCoy, NC-17 (sex, violence, and filthy mouths)
Warning(s): MAY BE TRIGGERY, please read warnings carefully! Some violent and bloody scenes, including assault and self-harm. Short descriptions of outright rape, other gradations of dubious consent. Discussions of child abuse. Cutting and scarification. Unhealthy pain play, evolving toward something better. (Masochism in a trusting BDSM context is a lovely thing. Pathological self-destructiveness isn't. This hurt/comfort story hits various parts of the continuum in between, but we don't mean to imply that they're the same thing.) Explicit sex. Oh, and lots and lots of profanity.
Summary
: Young Jim Kirk is unstable and self-destructive, Leonard McCoy is withdrawn and wary, and the obstacles to surviving their first term at Starfleet Academy are not easy to overcome. A dark and brutal tale of the tangled borders between healing and hurting, where hard choices between emotions and ethics have far-reaching consequences; dealing with abuse and alcoholism, affection and neglect, piercings and bar fights, hot and cold sex, complicated questions of consent, and loyalty and love between people who aren't comfortable with either. A whole new spin on "I want my pain, I need my pain."

I wasn't prepared for the way this fic knocked me on my ass when I read it. I don't self harm, but I know exactly what it's like to feel trapped inside your head by whirling emotions (I think of it as an emotional storm), and needing desperately a diversion to get away from yourself. As it happened, Jim was going through something similar in this fic, though taken to an extreme I've never gone to. Nevertheless, I identified with him. Jim's journey through the fic was deeply emotional and it was cathartic for me to read. It's a sledgehammer of a fic, and yet I think the relationship and trust between Jim and Bones was developed carefully and beautifully. I was very moved by the end of the fic at the lengths Bones went to help Jim heal. Plus, this takes my desire to whump Jim to a whole new level.


The Harder They Fall and For All the Right Reasons by [livejournal.com profile] mijan (also on AO3): Star Trek: AOS, NC-17
Warnings: Intense, hardcore, and potentially triggery. Mind-fuck. If you want spoilers to decide if it's something you can read, feel free to ping me with questions.
Summary: Jim is having trouble coping with his first failure of the Kobayashi Maru. His bigger problem might lie in the fact that he wants to try it again.

The Harder They Fall was another fic that completely knocked me out of my head by putting the characters into extreme physical conditions. It was somehow cathartic for me to read, despite never having been in any similar situation myself. It contains graphic and intense violence, and it seriously is a mind fuck.

For All The Right Reasons is written as an explanation for Fall. Mijan actually does a good job of fitting such an extreme story into the larger story arc she's telling. If you want to lessen the impact of Fall a little bit, read it first. Both are part of Mijan's Academy Series (which is epic and outstanding), and familiarity with that will probably help you understand For all the Right Reasons a little better.


The Price That Life Exacts by [personal profile] cathalin : SGA, McKay/Sheppard, NC-17, Kid!fic, angst
Summary: When John disappears without a trace during a routine mission, people in a beleaguered Atlantis eventually have to try to move on. Rodney never completely gives up hope of finding John, and though he soldiers on to help Atlantis, a year later he still lives every day with his grief. The story opens with a shocking discovery that may help Rodney come to terms with some truths about himself and his relationship with John, and will have consequences beyond what anyone might predict.
Warnings: I've placed warnings for this story in the Notes at the bottom, as they are somewhat spoilery for the fic. Please scroll down and read the warnings if there are things you need to avoid reading about.

Another kid!fic, but this one has a lot more going on than the kid. The angst, for one thing - so much angst. Mildly spoilery bit: John is so, so damaged in this, and the way Rodney brings him back is very touching. Also, there is music that is used in an amazing way.


Losing Touch by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash: Star Trek:AOS, McCoy/Jocelyn, Spock, Kirk
Summary: 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.

The life Bones might have had. This one is beautifully written, and heartbreaking. I was all "Oh god I need a hug!" by the end of it.


The Lovers, the Dreamers, and Me by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy: Star Trek: AOS RPF, Karl/Chris, R
Summary: Chris' birthday sucks. Until it doesn't anymore.

A simple little fic in which Chris despairs of making anything of his life. I love the way Thalia writes emotion into the smallest thing. Also, I love Karl in this. It's like balm for the soul <3








 
The Comfort )

As expected, it's short, but many of the fics and podfics I've already recced here in my journal are also comfort fics for me.

The Horshoe Nails Series by Dyce: Firefly/Serenity, River/Jayne is the primary romance but it's really an ensemble series, Teen, some violence, discussions of mental and emotional trauma, and romance
Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on FF.net.
Summary for Two Gorram Days (part 1): Jayne is left all alone with a bad leg and a crazy girl for two days. It doesn't go as badly as it could.

Dyce does an amazing job of developing the whole crew, but especially River and Jayne, into sympathetic and whole characters. She takes the small amount of info about the Academy we are given in cannon and really delves into its impact on River's mind and life, and then guides River out of the darkness and into a real life with the crew. She takes Jayne, a character commonly portrayed as dumb, uncouth and self-serving in cannon, and makes him into a surprisingly sensitive and loyal partner for River, all in a way that feels very organic and IC to me. Her portrayal of Simon is also fantastic. There is romance, humor, fighting for one's life, and an ending to the Big Damn Movie that is more satisfying than the movie itself. It seems that Part 5 is not actually finished, which is a crying shame. It hasn't been updated since 2008 so I don't know how much hope there is for it. However, I think the whole thing is worth reading anyway.

This has been my number one comfort fic (series, whatever) over the last year or so. I can't even tell you how many times I've read it. There were days where I finished the last story and started right back over again with the first story. It's also my favorite Firefly fic of all time, River/Jayne or otherwise. River's journey through the series is very inspiring to me. Like Jayne says in one of the parts, I respect her fight, and reading along with it never gets old to me.


Found Your Writing On My Wall by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy: Star Trek: AOS RPF, Karl/Chris, NC-17, Mary Sue fic!
Summary: He shouldn't call her. He knows he shouldn't. It goes against his upbringing and his personal morals to call a girl just because her accent makes him miss a possession that was never really his. He picks up his phone anyway.

There is a lot of angst in this one, but it's overwhelmingly a comfort fic for me. The snark, the longing, the dialog, and my boys - it's a perfect Urbine. Plus, it has the best Mary Sue in a fic you'll ever read.

ETA:  OMG, I totally forgot that Thalia recorded this as a podfic here.  It's a fantastic read, I really enjoyed it.
pslasher: (Default)

I spent the day doing domestic things. Laundry (which still isn't finished), cleaning the cars, painting the mailbox. Did you know that mailboxes require regular painting? I didn't, before I owned a house. I do now, though. I am reminded of fic:

sweat, paint and blue jeans by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash: Star Trek Reboot, Kirk/Spock/McCoy, NC-17
In which the boys get *delightfully* messy and have hot sex. My own painting experience was nowhere near as interesting, but the memory of this made the task more fun.

Most of the submissions from Ship Olympics Event 3 are posted, but this one made me double over laughing.  I was going to wait to look at them all at once today, but it caught my eye last night and I couldn't resist.  (Comment here if you like)





And in the way of all the best internet ramblings I stumbled across something new to me on youtube: Kinetic Typography Animation.  The first one I saw was for Firefly, which I LOVED, but it seems there are all kinds out there.

*Note: LJ hates me today and I can't get my LJ cuts to work with my embeds properly.  But I'm out of time to fiddle with it anymore.  So, until I can make my cuts work, there are Kinetic Typography videos for Firefly, Trek XI and First Contact, LotR, Ocean's 11, Braveheart, Monty Python, President Obama, The Matrix, Pirates of the Caribbean, Iron Man, and Star Wars under the cut.  Yeah, I was really on a roll today!  :D*

I PASSED MY TEST!!!




LOL, whew, now I can stop worrying about it.  I know some of you are sick of hearing about it!  Anyway, I've not been doing anything productive on the internets for a while now, but there are a few things that I've enjoyed lately that I wanted to share.

First, I have no idea what the proper etiquette for pimping works that you've beta'd is, but I'm gonna do it anyway because it's an awesome fic!  (And my beta efforts were mostly "OMG, I LOVE IT!" and she did all the work, so it hardly counts as betaing, lol): 

Roll Away Your Stone, I'll Roll Away Mine by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy , Star Trek 2009, Kirk/McCoy, NC-17
You guys, I just love everything about this fic.  Seriously, I can't even really tell you all the things I love without writing a book about it.  Which I did, and sent to Thalia, but I don't think ya'll want to read it too.  So I'll shorten it to a few bullet points:
  • I love the way she plays with the accepted fannish characterizations for the boys with this fic.  It's smart and refreshing, and I loved it.
  • The whole damn thing is smart.  I mean, the dialog, the way she uses fannish cliches, the way she weaves their backstory in, everything.  She makes leaps and expects us to be able to follow, and it works.
  • Stuff like...  Oh hell, I can't even quote anything because every sentence is loaded, and quoting anything will give something away.  Just know that I love her descriptive language.

Coming Closer by [livejournal.com profile] colls :  Pretty, angsty Karl from DOOM!  The vidder really made great use of the footage, I think.  And, it's Karl's pretty face.  What's not to love?

Common Knowledge by [livejournal.com profile] elucreh : J2 RPS, R (Maybe NC-17?), characters discover fanfic
Summary: Jared, your fangirls. Fangirls, I believe you already know Jared. Better than he knows himself.
This is so funny, and so damn cute!  It's one of the best "characters discover fanfic" fics I've read.  And even though there aren't many of those, this one is still amazing.  Plus, it celebrates the SPN/J2 fan, and fandom in general, and it made me squeeful to read it.

This video has made me laugh several times over the last week.  YOU ARE NOT YOUR GLITTERY EYE MAKEUP!!



And now, I'm off to have dinner, with a few martini's for good measure.  Well, one, because I'm a lightweight.  Maybe two, because it's a celebration!  And then I'll try and drop by the party post at [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones , because it looks like fun.  How are you guys?

I've been enjoying the shit out of some podfics lately. It's my new favorite thing while driving, pulling weeds, cleaning the house, or eating lunch. There is something so amazing about having fanfic with you everywhere, even when there is no internet or no hands available to hold a book. The downside of podfics is the feedback part. I listen when I'm away from the computer, and when I get back I don't often remember to go find the author/reader and feedback. Which is lousy on my part, so I'll have to do better. The other downside is that with NC-17 slash Podfics (and voice memos, and wordpad notes) on my iPhone, I get twitchy as a grasshopper in a hen house when anyone picks up my phone. You've got to keep a close eye on what people browse into!

A lot of these links come from the Audiofic Archive.  Almost all of the links to that archive are for the Audiobook format (.m4b) because that's what I prefer.  I like the way my iPod will bookmark my spot in the story, and link chapters together.  For a huge series like Illogical that's important.  However, all the fics on that archive also come in MP3 format.  To find them click on the author, reader, fandom or pairing tag and search until you find what you want.  All of the podfic posts I've linked below contain links to the fic.  You can find more communities that post or host podfics here at my pinboard.

Here are some that I've really enjoyed.

Ship Wars is almost over!!  May 13 is the last day!  However, the mods have opened up voting on this round to the public!  This post is kind of last minute, and I don't know if there is anyone on my flist not involved with Ship Wars, but if you are interested you can check it out at [livejournal.com profile] st_respect  .  I think the battle posts (party post) are a blast, and there are lots of great fic and vids to vote on.  JUST BE SURE TO SUBMIT 3 VOTES, OR YOUR VOTE WON'T COUNT!

The schedule is as follows:

Party Post (also open to public): May 3rd - May 7th

Grand Ceremony Overall: May 12th

May 13th = Ship Wars is DONE


I know that the [livejournal.com profile] team_jones comm plans to stay open after the War is over.  I think they will continue to post pics and fic prompts, and just generally be a cool place to hang out for Jones fans.

I read the most amazingly intense fic recently and I had to rec it.  OK, it was like 2 weeks ago, but better a late rec than never, right?  My thanks to [livejournal.com profile] emiliglia  and [livejournal.com profile] weepingnaiad  for the fantastic rec!

In Perfect Trust by [livejournal.com profile] mijan : 
Kirk/McCoy, Star Trek Reboot, fic, NC-17.  Warnings: BDSM, Medical kink, sounding, needleplay.  Intense kink here, bbs!
Summary:"Everything feels just... it's like I'm itching for something that I can't quite scratch. So I wanted something that could… snap me out of that. Feel like I'm trying something new and dangerous.
It certainly wasn't how Leonard McCoy had ever hoped to discover Jim's more unusual sexual interests, but now that he knew, he wasn't going to let the opportunity slip for either of them... if Jim trusted him enough.
This is one gorgeous fic.  Seriously, I can't even tell you. The trust, it's one of the most beautiful, intense things I've read in a while. I was uncertain in the beginning, very much like Jim, because I've read very little medical kink and I didn‘t know where mijan was going to go with it. But the sensations were incredible, just incredible, and probably intensified by those very feelings of nerves and uncertainty.  This fic was everything I never knew I wanted from these kinks!

Mijan did a wonderful job of showing the logic and thought process behind the things going on in the fic, but also describing the uncertainty and sensations in such a way that I felt them too.  It was as though Mijan was guiding me through these unknown kinks with the information I needed to trust enough to let go and enjoy, while still allowing me to experience the fear of the unknown.  It was actually the perfect read for how stressed I've been feeling lately.  It made me forget about everything and just experience the story.

Also, the kink was written so that it fit surprisingly well with their personalities. I could really see Jim responding like this, getting off on this. It seems to really explain some things about Jim and Bones in the new movie - more discussion from mijan in my comments here, after you''ve read the fic.  I really appreciated the way these unusual desires and activities were woven into the characters as I know and love them, and felt so organic to them.  This fic is perfect for BDSM readers who like to really push the envelope, but still want realistic fic that is safe, sane and consensual.
Now I need to follow this up by reading Blissfully So[livejournal.com profile] weepingnaiad 's sounding fic for [livejournal.com profile] km_anthology !


pslasher: (Chris Karl suits)

This was originally written for a [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones away mission prompt.  I'm really enjoying Ship Wars.  I've even managed to read all the fics for this round and vote, and look through the Battle Post a bit.  And wow, the Battlle Posts rock!  I was laughing and smiling, and I just enjoyed the hell out of the whole thing.  Especially sending telegrams with [livejournal.com profile] lunasky3 !  I commented on a few entries, but felt a bit too shy to post anything new yet.  Maybe next time, now that I've got my feet wet.  On to the fic:

I've been sitting on these recs for a while now, and I figured that I ought to just post them. So, a bunch of vids that have delighted me lately.


Sleeping With Ghosts by [livejournal.com profile] butterfly , Star Trek 2009 and TOS:
Hush It's OK / Dry your eyes / Soulmate dry your eyes / Cause soulmates never die.
This is a really beautiful Kirk/Spock vid that combines footage from TOS and Reboot to show their deep and eternal love. Not only do they get a relationship in TOS, but they are fated to be together in the Reboot timeline because soulmates never die. Really touching, and it reminds me why Kirk/Spock is such an enduring pairing.

When the Sun Goes Down by [livejournal.com profile] buffyann , Queer as Folk:
Gorgeous boys, gorgeous editing and gorgeous source make for one gorgeous vid. The use of motion in this is so perfect, the vid just flows and grooves and *works*. And the boys! This vid makes a strong argument for watching QAF. This is so extremely well done that I can’t really say anything else except GO WATCH IT.

Red by [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24 , Merlin:
Come as you are sweetheart, come as you are / You know you've got nothing to prove. Gorgeous vid for Arthur/Merlin. Arthur is a tragic hero, and Merlin loves him anyway. This was the first Merlin vid I saw, and just from watching it I totally get and ship Arthur/Merlin.

Beast of Burden by [livejournal.com profile] sweetestdrain , Merlin:
OMG, does Merlin seriously want to make it with *everyone*, or is the vidder just that awesome? She did a fantastic job making him the desperate slut of Camelot.

Metaphor by [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza , Seah & Margie, Multifandom:
So very funny, I got a big kick out of this one.

Beautiful Dirty Rich by [livejournal.com profile] astolat , American Idol - Adam Lambert:
Gorgeous, sparkley Adam in all his dancing and singing glory! I just got so much squee and joy from this, it had to be recced. She’s also written a ton of Idol RPS that I’m loving and will have to rec.

Heaven Is A Place On Earth by [livejournal.com profile] rhoboat  , Supernatural:
OMG crack SPN! It’s Dean/Castiel set to stadium rock! I totally loved it, every gorgeous, absurd bit. I still haven’t gotten up the nerve to watch the show (yeah, I’m a wuss) but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the pretty! Plus, I’m really liking Misha Collins. His Twitter is hilarious, and then there is this video of him, Jared and Jensen at a convention that made me go o.0 SRSLY?!?. Nuff said.  (The second picture on that page is from that video, but the actual video is twords the bottom of the post with the other videos of Misha and J2)
 
Bromance? By Clucking Belles, Multifandom:
Fun vid about all the buddy shows we love. In particular I enjoyed the SGA and Psych parts.

I've just finished watching the last disc of the Return of the King extended edition and I'm missing LotR and Lotrips fandom terribly. It's been 10 years since they started filming!! What an amazingly fantastic and moving experience it was, the whole ride, and I feel so thankful that Peter Jackson and New Line were so generous in providing us so much material in the extended edition DVD's. I wonder if they have any plans for the upcoming 10 year anniversary.

I'm hoping that the Star Trek Reboot cast and franchise will continue on for several movies and grow to that level of emotional connection and history. I'm thinking that they will because the actors already seem to be very connected and the huge Trek fan base and franchise can support many more movies. While nothing can replace the LotR experience, I want Trek to be just as cherished in my memories when this is all over.

I'm struck lately by how much fandom has worked it's way into nearly every thought I have, and today is an amusing example of that.  I went to see a friend perform in her first performance with our state's Master Choral in a beautiful cathedral downtown.  The performance was really beautiful, everyone was clearly quite talented and well rehearsed, but during that two and a half hour span I had three separate instances of fannish thought, during an activity that has nothing to do with fandom in the least.

We got to the church way early so we could get a seat up front.  While waiting I thought I might entertain myself by reading a bit of a fic I started earlier on my iPhone, The People We Are, The Choices We Make by[personal profile] syredronning(Star Trek), when I realized that reading fannish gay BDSM pr0n in the cathedral might be considered sacrilegious by everyone else there and that if I don't already have a ticket to Hell, that would surely get me one.  So I read the program a few times instead.

Then I thought about[personal profile] thalialunacywho is going to school to study Opera.  I thought it would be cool if I could see her perform and then we could hang out afterward.  I amused myself for a while thinking of how we could watch Trek and talk about Chris and Karl and she could tell me all about the new fics she's writing.  Sadly, we live on opposite sides of the country and she wasn't performing tonight.

One of the pieces that were performed was Dvorak's Mass in D (links to the other parts in the box to the right.).  It's performed in Latin, and it made me think of Written by the Victors by Speranza (SGA).  The fic is academic and quite geeky and brilliant and really unique and is a must read for all Stargate Atlantis fans.  But the relevant part is that Aesc made fanworks based on the Victer 'Verse (scroll down to the Ars Atlantinae section).  She wrote a poem about Sheppard called Se Narsaugir, translated it into a language she's creating (a la Tolkien), and Cate recorded herself chanting the aural version.  (The Iohannes Cash Poem was excellent too, and really amused me)  The language sounds vaguely like Latin, at least to my untrained ear, so I spent a while during the Dvorak performance imagining they were singing about John and Rodney and the Atlantis Uprising, and what they might be saying.  It was a really nice way to enjoy the beautiful music.

So apparently reading fic and watching vids every chance I get isn't enough, fandom also has to permeate my dreams and every waking thought I have.  Does anyone else have this problem? ;)
pslasher: (Kirk Spock Uhura are Mine)
I've just seen Apple Candy by[personal profile] talitha78and it's so goddamned beautiful I squeed and rewatched like 10 times.  It's a Kirk/Uhura/Spock vid and it's achingly perfect with Jim's angst and need and desire for them.  This makes me love Jim So Fucking Much for how much he wants the two of them, for how it's just *written* all over his face through the whole thing. Lately Jim is my favorite character from the movie because of the depths he seems to hide behind all the charm and arrogance and BS, and she just captured that SO PERFECTLY here.

Gorgeous song choice, too. It's obviously made for OT3 goodness.  It's deep, and touching, and thrilling and makes me want them to be together in the worst way. Interestingly enough, I heard it for the first time today in a TOS K/S/M vid (What He Knows by Kembas2009) and thought it was perfect for a threesome vid, and here it is again! 

And then I read Apple Candy by[personal profile] lunabee34 and I'm totally gone.  "She is made of right angles, this woman—brilliant, flawless, something sharp Jim could break himself on."  She takes the angsty Jim from the vid and writes them all together and it's beautiful!

Seriously, this has to be the best threesome vid I've ever seen with a perfect fic to boot, and it reawoke my K/S/U OT3!!!! K/S/M has been my OT3 for months now, but K/S/U was there first, and it's beautiful.  I'm shipping Kirk/Uhura/Spock so hard now!  Plz to be reccing fic and vids!  Also icons;  I don't have a proper K/S/U OT3 icon.
pslasher: (Kirk Bones New School OTP)
Title:  Cherry Pie
Author: pslasher
Fandom: Star Trek 2009
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Rating: PG-13

A/N:  Written for [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash 's 69 Meme a while back, where she trades fics with her commenters, but I've just now gotten up the nerve to post it.  Maybe if I get brave enough I'll post it to [community profile] kirk_mccoy

Leonard didn't look up from his PADDs as Jim burst through the door. "I'm studying" he said, a preemptive attempt to get Jim to leave him alone for the night so he could finally work on this damn paper. One that likely wouldn't work.

"Hey Bones" Jim replied cheerfully, dropping a large paper bag onto the coffee table.

He merely grunted, focusing again on his notes as Jim rifled through the cabinets in his tiny dorm kitchen.

"I brought you a cherry pie from that little cafe you love" Jim said, flopping down on the couch next to him.

Leonard looked up at that, eyes narrowing. "That's my favorite. What did you do?"

Jim affected a hurt look as he carefully lifted the pie out of the bag. "What, a guy can't bring his boyfriend a pie without something being wrong?"

He snorted. "Not you, no. Did they catch you hacking into the security feeds for the women's locker room? Cause I told you that wouldn't work."

Jim rolled his eyes, cutting the pie into large portions and dishing out one for each of them. "No they haven't caught me, I told you I was careful. Besides, I set it up to only be viewable on your personal PADDs."

"Damnit, Jim" Leonard growled, punching Jim hard on the arm. "If I get in trouble for that I'm bringing you down with me."

"Joking! I'm totally joking" Jim laughed, dodging another punch and shoving a plate at him. "Here, have a slice."

Leonard glared and tossed his PADD down on the coffee table. The pie did smell pretty good, tart like fresh cherries and still warm. He took a big bite, leaning back in the couch. "Mmmm. Not quite as good as Momma makes, but pretty damn close. So really, why the pie?"

"I just happened to be over by that place and I thought you might like one" Jim replied around a mouthful, smiling big.

Leonard snorted again, polishing off the last bit of crust on his plate. “Try that angelic face on someone else, kid.”

Jim scooted across the couch to press up against him, offering him a forkful from his plate. Leonard raised his eyebrow at that, but wasn’t about to turn down more pie. Jim grinned, twisting around and lifting his leg to straddle Leonard’s lap. He offered another forkful of pie and Leonard took it, tongue peeking out to lick the fork clean.

Jim fed him another bite, and another, watching his mouth the whole time with a satisfied smile slowly spreading across his face until he had fed Leonard the rest of his pie. Then he leaned down, licking at Leonard’s lips until he gave in and licked back.

Jim tasted sweet, like sugar and cherries, his full lips opening for Leonard’s tongue, inviting him in. Leonard pushed deeper slowly, feeling Jim move against him as one hand stroked up Jim’s thigh to grip his hip and the other tangled in his hair.

Jim broke off the kiss and leaned down to whisper in Leonard’s ear. “Maybe I just wanted to taste how sweet you are,” the stubble on his cheek rasping against Leonard’s skin.

Leonard’s soft laugh caught in his chest as Jim bit his ear lobe, licked his neck just below his jaw. “Only you, Jim. Only you.”

So here are some random things that made me laugh, squee or smile lately, stuff I just wanted to share.

Have you discovered [livejournal.com profile] ontd_startrek yet?  It's perfect for your daily dose of Star Trek pics and discussion related news. Tons of gifs, related video links and picspams of the actors. Tons of crack, it can get pretty absurd, but that's why I love it.  It never fails to get at least a smile out of me, but usually I'm laughing loudly.  I've spent way to much time doing nothing there.  The comm is massive though, so you may not always get through everything.  As an example of the awesomness that is ontd_startrek, check out this post with Gifs of Karl Urban from Doom.  He's totally hot, so I must now see this movie.

Speaking of Karl Urban, check out the Blunty interview with him.  You get almost 8 minutes of him speaking about Bones and Trek, it's delicious.  Want more Trek interviews?  The Blunty interview with Chris Pine  and Zach Quinto is fantastic too.  And then there is the two-part interview with Chris and Zach, the one where Chris says he has a mancrush on Karl - yep, you read that right!  Go watch, they are fantastic.  [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy  always has the best links.

So, more Trek stuff that made me laugh:

TwitterEnterprise by Misfit-fandoms:  A  day on board the Enterprise, as seen through Twitter. Very funny.

Star Trek Cribs:  A tv commercial for G4 channel that totally made me LOL.  Spock takes MTV on a tour of his 'crib'.  There are more funny ones by that user too.
pslasher: (Default)

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.

OT4 Baby!! [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash is writing Uhura/Spock and Kirk/Bones that is going to wind up being one big orgy with all of them!  It's full of UST and dirty talk and some damn good sex.  She calls it the Wet Series, and I highly recommend it.

I've put in a promt at the [livejournal.com profile] st_xi_kink meme here for more OT4.  Hopefully it will get filled.  If anyone knows of any other OT4 fics I'd love to read them!

ETA:  She's gotten to the orgy part!!!  There's mind blowing sex, toys, food and drugs: everything you need for a good orgy!  God it's good, srsly go read it.  It's called One Night.  It's split into chapters, to get to the rest check out her Fic Masterlist and scroll down.

Star Trek 2009 has totally taken over my fannish life.  It's all I read, and watch, lately, so I thought I'd share some of the best I've come across.  Star Trek fandom has exploded, though, so this list is in no way complete for the fantastic stuff out there.

Right after seeing the movie I fell hard for Spock/Uhura.  Their relationship was so touching onscreen that I just had to experience more.  The [livejournal.com profile] spock_uhura  comm is huge, and full of fic, vids and art for the pairing.

Speaking In Tongues by [livejournal.com profile] monimala, Probably hard R:  This was the first fic I read for them and it was fantastic.  It's Uhura's POV, how they start their relationship.  She got Uhura's internal voice spot-on, and the sex was hot as hell too.  (Part 2-ponn farr fic!, part 3)

Boundaries and Discipline by [livejournal.com profile] taraljc, G and PG-13:  A couple of short fics about Uhura and Spock's relationship.  Well written little vignettes.

Letting Go by [livejournal.com profile] inell, R:  She wishes that he'd occasionally take the initiative. 

Primal by [livejournal.com profile] poetics124, NC-17:  When Commander Spock and Cadet Uhura travel to a unexplored planet to find new Federation technology the planet begins to awaken Spock's primal urges.  Ponn Farr, rough sex.



So Spock/Uhura quickly lead to Spock/Uhura/Kirk because really, who wouldn't want to read that?

Rough Estimate by [livejournal.com profile] heather, NC-17:  Uhura and Spock estimate the length of time they have in the turbolift before someone finds them. Kirk as the voyur, Spock talking all logical and technical.  Really hot.

Realizations by [livejournal.com profile] meri, NC-17:  Uhura and Spock realize that they both want Kirk, and proposition him.  Kirk is all grown up here, and it's an interesting change.

Not in the stars, but in ourselves by [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek, NC-17:  Pon farr fic. Jim's not sure why his door chime is ringing at this hour, but it must be important.  This one includes bonding between all three, and I totally love that.

My Brain Comes In Porn by [livejournal.com profile] ninhursag, NC-17:  Classic h/c where all three are trapped on a snowy planet and must huddle together for warmth. And, like, Kirk's right there, and all twitchy and angry and bouncing off the walls. And Uhura's the calm, collected one (Spock just pretends to be) and realizes that he seriously needs someone to bring him to heel or he'll throw himself off one cliff too many and no one will be there to catch him.  Angsty, with Dom/Sub themes.  Links to sequels after fic.  God, Kirk is such a beautiful, angsty sub it's incredible.


Kirk/Spock is the original slash pairing, so of course I had to check it out.  That and the fact that while watching the movie (all three times) I kept thinking "The slash that comes off this is going to be incredible!!  I haven't been let down.

Poker Face by [livejournal.com profile] talitha78, vid:  So this actually got the K/S party started for me.  It's chock full of the subtle glances, the fighting and the outright stares that make K/S so believable.  Loads of fun.

Don't Stop Believing by [livejournal.com profile] arefadedaway, vid:  Fun, squeeable vid about Spock being a small town girl living in a lonely world and Kirk being a city boy taking the midnight train going anywhere.  Makes fantastic use of Chris Pine's expressions.

Of Convenience by Annenberg:  Kirk has to get married in order to keep the Enterprise, and Spock is the logical answer.  They both try to keep from the other the fact that they are interested in more than just being friends.  Long, posted at [livejournal.com profile] st_xi_kink , the Kink Meme of Awesomness.

Stars Apart, Shine The Same by [livejournal.com profile] sineala, R:  It is the third mission of his command, and Captain James T. Kirk suspects he is going insane.  The results of his mind meld with Spock Prime.  Incorporates memories Kirk got from Spock Prime, really well written.

Tremors by [livejournal.com profile] corpus_invictus, R:  Love and sex in the shower, plus an absolutely amazing mind meld.  Mind Melds are one of my big kinks with Spock, and this one is so, so good.

Obscenities by [livejournal.com profile] corpus_invictus, NC-17:  Kirk overhears Spock cursing at the computer and becomes obsessed.

Instructions by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash, NC-17:  Spock has never given a blowjob before, so Kirk has to talk him through it. Very Hot.

"Kinky" by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash, NC-17:  Kirk riding Spock while he recites regulations, very hot.



K/S quickly evolved into Kirk/Spock/Bones, of course, and I found my OT3.  God I love the three of them together, it's like they are all three home together.  Or maybe I just love how [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash writes them ;)

Willing and How We Found Ourselves by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash, NC-17:  Spock goes into Ponn Farr while the three of them are crashed on a deserted planet and has no choice but to bond with one of them.  But he can't choose, so he picks both.  And thus the relationship is born.  The beauty of these fics is in the relationship (though the sex is awesome too).  Spock and Bones don't quite get along, despite being bonded, and Jim often acts as the go-between, smoothing things over and making everything better.  She's written Jim as deeply romantic, as well as sexual, and that is so appealing to me.  The long-term relationship she writes is deep and very fulfilling.

Whiskey and Chocolate by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash, NC-17:  Established relationship Pon Farr right on schedule, they're all prepared with plomeek soup and space Gatorade and lube and 48 hours of leave.  There is bonding again, and the deep love that comes with a long-term relationship.

Fascinating by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash, NC-17:  Kirk gets replicated in a transporter accident. One of him sexes up Spock while the other sexes up McCoy. A little later, the two halves merge and it leads to Spock/Kirk/McCoy.



And then I discovered I have a thing for Kirk/McCoy, maybe even more than Kirk/Spock.  Check out [livejournal.com profile] kirk_mccoy for more.

Two Men and a Motorbike Series by [livejournal.com profile] inell, NC-17:  Kirk and Bones go beyond friendship after they return to Earth.  This one is the best K/M i've read.  It has rough sex, great kissing and some role playing.  It's long, angsty, romantic and a fantastic read.  The follow-up series is Two Men and a Starship

Playmates and Lovers Bring Me Closer by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash, NC-17:  Kirk should be letting Bones study. Prompt includes a HOT gif of Karl Urban from Riddick, fic starts with kissing and is hot as hell.

Proper Motivation by [livejournal.com profile] florahart, NC-17:  Bones hustles Kirk at pool before pool-tabletop-sex occurs. Dominant Bones, subby Jim with a little bit of defiance.  Fucking fantastic.

Shiver by [livejournal.com profile] inell, NC-17:  Jim goes out to a masked costume party in search of a good time.

Unmasked by [livejournal.com profile] cards_slash, NC-17:  Kirk and McCoy are in the same place when Kirk is ~16. Underage!Kirk seduces McCoy.  Another masked party - these two make for great anonymous[livejournal.com profile] st_xi_kink!sex fics.

First Contact by [livejournal.com profile] florahart, NC-17:  A new planet is found and the people won't deal with Kirk until he is married. Thinking it won't matter once they leave the planet, Kirk chooses Bones, only to have the leaders say they have to consummate their marriage in front of everybody (crew, aliens, god).  This one has some funny parts that made me laugh out loud, but still hot.

Sooner or Later by [livejournal.com profile] flyingcarpet, R: The sooner and later of how they become more than friends, how Jim matures and Bones heals from his divorce.  Plays with flashbacks and memories.

Acts of Faith by [livejournal.com profile] flyingcarpet, R:  "This -- keeping his feelings to himself, which is where they belong -- would be a lot easier if Jim weren't so fucking smart." Kirk's emotional instinctiveness eventually figures Bones' attraction out.





Misc:

Takes One To Know One by [livejournal.com profile] sabinelagrande, NC-17:  Stargate Atlantis/Star Trek 2009 crossover.  John and Kirk together: Total PWP, hot.

Vulcanized Pick-up Lines:  from the kink meme, a compilation of pick-up lines.  So hilarious I couldn't stop laughing.  The first comment has a link to even more.
