Hey, for anyone who was interested in the ebook on Zine history I recently posted about, I have something else you might enjoy.  Slashcast's latest episode is called Back to School/Old School and has an excellent discussion on slash history - from zines to mailing lists to Livejournal to AO3.  They touch on everything from different fandoms (Star Trek: The Original Series, The Professionals, X-Files, Harry Potter, Lotrips, and Supernatural) to different topics (underage sex, bdsm, rps, ship wars, and the move from dial-up internet to high speed internet).  It was really interesting to listen to.

ETA:  The part I'm referring to is the Meta Discussion, though the whole episode was fun.

I had the good fortune recently to be a beta for two excellent projects that I wanted to rec to you all.

Parallel Motion (Or: Fate, Crunchy Cheetos, and a Bunch of Other Things Chris Pine Didn't Believe In) by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy, art by [livejournal.com profile] karneol_visionStar Trek Reboot RPS, Chris/Karl, NC-17, knotting and Mpreg
In a world with a happily secret, slightly oversexed, Hollywood-centered underbelly of werewolves, Chris Pine is a reluctant hipster alpha just trying to make a name for himself and still maintain the freedom to flip off the paps and wear however many white t-shirts he wants. He has no interest in being weighed down by centuries of tradition and the responsibilities of his station; he just wants to get laid.
Then he meets Karl Urban, and finds out all the lore he never believed is actually true--there is such a thing as a perfect mate. The only hitch? This one's married. Oh, and human.

I had the pleasure of reading along as Thalia wrote this, and it was so much fun seeing her bring this to life.  The concept of a werewolf alternate world was new to me, as was knotting, but both ideas were really fun.  I always love Urbine, but she turned the tables on me by writing Chris as the dominant in the relationship, the Alpha Male as it were.  I typically read Karl as the dom (in relationships with power exchanges), but damn did Thalia make me enjoy toppy!Chris!  There was angst and destiny and babies, and a fantastic Pinto friendship.  And as always, Parallel Motion sparkled with her brand of witty and emotive dialog.  I very much enjoyed this fic.  The art for this is also amazing.  It's gorgeous and heartbreaking and so evocative. 


The Winter of Banked Fires fic by [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 read by [livejournal.com profile] podcath, [livejournal.com profile] crinklysolution, [livejournal.com profile] luzula, [livejournal.com profile] helens78, [livejournal.com profile] heyiya, [livejournal.com profile] rhea314, and [livejournal.com profile] reena_jenkins.
X-Men movies, from First Class through XM3, Erik/Charles, Marie/Logan, Raven/Hank, NC-17
Charles Xavier has returned from the dead -- but is lost within his own mind. Rogue has cast aside her own power and doesn't know where she fits in the world any longer. The production of synthetic Cure means mutantkind itself is newly at risk. And Magneto, turned human against his will, is in despair until the day he feels a familiar consciousness tugging at his own --
This is an absolutely amazing fic.  Yahtzee did an excellent job of taking the existing cannon and remaking it into something powerful and rewarding.  The characters were believable, the plot was exciting, and the relationships were phenomenal.  Truly excellent relationships between Erik/Charles and Marie/Logan.  And the podfic, which was what I helped beta listen, was an excellent union of many readers making the story come to life.  So many wonderful readers!  This fic is long, and the POV shifts from chapter to chapter.  Each reader read one particular character, so each chapter had a new reader.  It was an excellent premise for a group podfic, and [livejournal.com profile] podcath did a wonderful job of tying all the chapters together.

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.

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.
pslasher: (Default)
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.

pslasher: (Default)
I've been reading a lot of long fics lately, both slash and het.

24/7
by [info]xanthestories, also on the AO3 here:  X-Files, Skinner/Mulder, NC-17.  Slave fic with very heavy BDSM, kink and D/s
This one is very long and very intense in every way.  Mulder signs a slavery contract with a Master without even knowing his identity.  The master turns out to be Skinner, and he sets out to train Mulder right away.  It starts out as a physical need for Mulder, but he grows to realize that the relationship means so much more to him than that.  If any of the warnings above squick you in the least don't read at all, it's really that intense.  It has some of the most amazing BDSM scenes I've ever read, both private scenes between Skinner and Mulder and group scenes with their friends.  It's intensely emotional through most of it, both the despair / anger and love / joy type of emotions.  And after a bit Skinner and Mulder even relax enough to play;  there is a lot of roleplay and dressing up.  The slave aspect is heavily accented and very well carried out.  Even though slave fic isn't one of my biggest kinks it was so beautifully written here that I began to love what it did for Mulder.  I don't watch the X-Files, but I recommend this fic for anyone who enjoys their sex downright intense.

Le Vertu abandonnée (Virtue Forsaken)
by [info]arieltachna and [info]sileyascribbles:   Lotrips, NC-17, Orlando/Viggo with a little Bean/Orlando and Karl/Bean
Rich and bored aristocrats in pre-revolutionary France play high-stakes games of passion and betrayal.  This one is pure romance.  Orlando seeks to seduce Viggo, but finds more than he bargained for.  It's very sweet, and so worth reading. 

Der Falke (The Falcon)
by [info]arieltachna and [info]sileyascribbles:  Lotrips, Karl/Bean, NC-17 BDSM Sequel to Virtue Forsaken. 
Having suffered ruination in French society, Marquis Sean Bean opens a new chapter of his life by traveling to Germany with Prince Karl-Heinz von Urban, in the fashion of what he thinks of as a trained body servant. But he discovers their relationship is far, far more complex.  I love Karl and Sean together and they are written so well here.  Sean struggles to figure out how to make Karl keep him, while Karl tries to show Sean how to stay.  This one has a fair bit of angst with a lot of rough, possessive, kinky sex.  Both of these fics made me sigh and grin like crazy over the characters.


Real forever if by [info]astolat:  American Idol, Cook/Archuleta, Mature, 'bonding' Archuleta spontaneously 'bonds' to Cook. 
American Idol fic!  This is actually the first AI fic I've read, but I knew even while watching that David Cook is just perfectly slashable.  He has some unquantifiable sensuousness that just oozes out of him and screams "Slash me!"  I wasn't too sure about Archie, but astolat made his sweetness work perfectly with the story.  It's sweet and hot and it made my heart clench up for them at the end.  I've gotta find more, maybe even some rough Cook/Simon...


Lately I've been really into Firefly fic, River/Jayne in particular.  I don't usually do het in fic, but the hard, dangerous fierceness of both characters is very attractive.  They can do both rough or sweet equally.

Thoughts colored Ugly by [info]lit_gal  NC-17, Rayne, slavefic, bdsm
Jayne's thinking too hard, and River shows up, making him face parts of himself that he doesn't really want to face.  Jayne winds up getting himself sold into slavery for trying to avoid the issue.  River's really persistent and dangerous, though not quite sane, and Jayne's really introspective.  The dialog and sex are excellent, and there is some fantastic fighting and rough handling between them that you don't usually get in het.  Lit_gal also got the submissive part of Jayne down pat, it's a joy to read their relationship as it develops.

The Broken series by Mik109  NC-17, Rayne, rough sex
Jayne and River have sex as a way to save River from a cult that wants her virginity. Then River must find a way to fix Jayne since the experience 'broke' him.  There is a lot of angst in the beginning that leads to very hot sex and a very possessive Jayne.  This one's fantastic, I really love Jayne possessive and hopelessly in love with River and defending them against the rest of the crew.  "Morning After" Jayne is superb.

Partner Ship by [info]fabledfigment
Jayne and River court for two weeks after they realize they have feelings for each other. Long, very sweet and romantic.

Serious Games
by [info]fabledfigment
There's fighting, talking, and sex, then Jayne's never letting go of River.

Freedom's Just Another Word For Nothing Left To Loose by [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic  

This is so beautiful it made me tear up at the end. On the surface this is Rodney's life after the fall of the Wraith for good and the change in the SCG to "weapon's research" when all civilians are removed from the project.  He comes back to Earth to teach at the physics department of some small university.  Slowly he brings his lessons from Atlantis to the classroom.

Underneith it's Rodney coming to terms with everything that happened while on Atlantis.  How he learned from Atlantis and the situations he was in.  How he came to love Atlantis and her people and how they became home to him.  And how he can do that again.  It's not a plotty fic; the beauty is in the details of Rodney's life, and how through the telling of the day-to-day stuff you come to understand Rodney's emotional state and how it changes over the years.  This fic is really subtle, and she handles the subtle nature perfectly.  She never says outright what Rodney is feeling, you have to infer it from what he's doing. 

Rodney is just gorgeous in this. 
Spoilers! )
The "DVD Commentary" was wonderful, too.

I read this fic after watching This Is How It Works by Lim. 

This is why I love Atlantis and her fanfic; the characters and ideas support in-depth character analysis and emotional depth so well.  It's such a rich world with so much opportunity to extend beyond the source.  The show creaters have managed to create characters that resonate very well with me, and the fans give them a gloriously varied existence.

Indelible by [livejournal.com profile] shaenie : read at the AO3 here or her LJ here
Stargate: Atlantis, R (heavy, just to be safe), spanking themes

I've just gotten done reading Indelible for the second time and felt that it definitely needed to be recced.  Even if you don't read SGA fic I'd still recommend it, it's just that good.

In it John is forced to accept punishment for something Rodney did while off-world. That punishment is spanking and Rodney if forced to watch. The memory and their feelings haunt them, but they must deal with them while simultaneously making major discoveries of new Atlantis tech.

I love this fic for John's wonderful internal monologue and his thoughts about Rodney.  Shaenie pegged them both so, so well and gave John wonderful emotional depths while still keeping him very true to character.  There is friendship and laughter, irritation and anger and great McKay rants, danger and love and fear all wrapped up together.  This fic is long with several different major events but it really doesn't drag at all.  It really seems to take John that long and that many encounters to let himself feel for Rodney.  The plot is detailed and moves quickly, weaving together the plot, science and the emotional moments really well.  The various plot points further John's emotional journey, not distract from it.  Plus Shaenie has a way of describing the scenes that give just enough information to make them really detailed while still allowing my mental image of them to fly.  Her writing is wonderful for the unusual words she uses, the detailed character descriptions and excellent dialog.  Even Rodney, who's dialog I assume is difficult to write because he must be intelligent, scathing and witty all at once.

The new discoveries and the science are beautiful and serve to bring John and Rodney together very intimately.  I love the science it this, how Rodney is driven to his science as his refuge and how it brings them together.  The cathedra are seriously brilliant.  I haven't seen enough Atlantis to know if they are cannon or not.  If not, Shaenie pushed all my science loving buttons with them, and gave John and Rodney a way to feel each other's emotions and souls to boot, so she rocks so much for that!  Even if they are cannon her descriptions are still brilliantly effective at bringing them together.  And John with the math!  God I loved that too.

The tea and the flashbacks are brilliant too, such a unique way to reexamine the issue without it becoming dull.Read more... )Read more... )

I hope you enjoy!

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:

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.

To continue my post from yesterday, here are the rest of my Psych favorites.

"Right Place, Wrong Time"Lassiter  by Regann - PG-13/R - In this one Shawn and Lassie meet ten years before the show starts.  Great strory concept and she really pulls it off well.  This fic has humor, angst, and fate, and I really enjoyed it.  I really like the way she writes Lassiter, he's a little more soft than the show would have you believe.

Quarter Life Crisis by PookaSeraph - Carlton/Shawn  Shawn courts Lassie untill he finally gets him.  I  love the way she writes Shawn, and develops his character.  It feels very true to the show, but he really grows in a believable way in this fic, and I really appreciated that.  I really enjoyed this one, and have reread it several times.  

Later Days by wolfscythe Excellent police story, good relationship development, 
good writing.  Shawn grows up, and Lassiter grows to respect Shawn.   Lots of drama.

In celebration of me starting a Livejournal I thought I'd post some recs to some of my fave slash fic.  Right now my favorite fandoms for slash are Stargate: Atlantis and Psych.

SGA:
A Beautiful Lifetime Event by shalott  John and Rodney have a baby!  It a totally plausible way, no mpreg here.  One of my favorite stories ever.  Wonderful relationship development, some humor, and excellent writing.

Time in a Bottle by astolat  John and Rodney get stuck in stasis together and have to learn to live with each other.  This one is really beautiful, I just love the emotions she develops in them.

Forget Me Not by Maisierita  John the servant turns out not to be anything like Rodney would have imagined.  This one plays with memory, and has such a unique plot.

Theories of Relativity by pookaseraph A great crossover between SGA and Psych, and it totally works.  It had me laughing out loud.  


Psych:
Inreto 'Verse series by ilsaluvsrick Great police stories and relationship development, excellent slash, and a really sweet ending.



More to come.

These are just my current favorites.  I have many more recs at my
delicious account.
