my delicious runneth over

« previous entry | next entry »

I have been making so many recs, I love reccing, I want all appropriate people to see the gorgeous fic! I also have about 800 recs at delicious.com/msilverstar, maybe you'll like some of those...

My main fandom is now and always will be Lotrips. But I've branched out a bit, and rec fic in lots of other fandoms (including ones like SGA that I don't even watch), because good stories are worth sharing.

So: my last 12 recs: lotrips, bandom, merlin, torchwood:

LOTR RPS: "Scrambled Eggs with a Side of Bacon" by lavitanuova (Billy/Dom)

Set in 2009, a ficlet full of friendship that could be read as slash or gen. Full of telling phrases and snarky dialog, makes me happy. 752 words. "If you didn't want strange men to creep into your room and look at you, you wouldn't sleep naked."


Merlin in Firefly-verse: "Companion" AU by valderys (Arthur/Merlin) </p>

Arthur is a planetary governer's son and Merlin is a newly-graduated Companion (like Inara, only cheerfully awkward). Great Arthur stream-of-consciousness as he rises to the situation. Sweetly hot. 1,583 words


LOTR RPS: "The ABCs of Sean and Orlando" by giselleslash (Orlando/Sean Bean)

Really good series, with Orlando and Sean's alternating thoughts on why they love each other, using the structure of the letters A to Z. The un-gooey kind of schmoop, really cheering to read.


Torchwood: "Performance Review" (Lisa/Ianto)

Backstory set at Torchwood One, just after Ianto has made it on to Lisa's team. She knows exactly how to keep his morale up, and he is very prepared to work under her leadership. Fantastic writing, lots of heat and intimacy, and a great Lisa inner voice. ~4,000 words.

Spoiler quote: (skip) "He sinks down immediately, looking surprised only for a very brief moment, as if he's not shocked at her command but the fact that he's automatically obeying it."


LOTR FPS: "Feasts, Feuds and Frolics" AU by alassenya (Merry/Pippin0

Intimate and only slightly AU, young Pippin tries to lure Merry into bed, and when he finally does, the sex is explicit and almost too perfect. The language is hobbity enough, the various large parties and meals quite charming. Some nice female characters, especially in the beginning. Angsty secondary story about Frodo and cousin Berry. 74,048 words


LOTR RPS "Full Disclosure" by karri (Elijah/Dom)

Elijah inner-voice ficlet, written right after Collectormania 4 in 2003. It takes the discussions of tinhattery during the con to the logical extreme, with great dialog and lovely tension, though ending before anything beyond some snogging. 2,946 words.


Torchwood: "Shift" by iamshadow (gen)

Post-COE somewhat of a fix-it fic. Author summary: "Exploring the ruins of the Hub after a Rift quake, Gwen finds something completely unexpected that could change everything."


Bandom RPS: "Just Maybe We Could Lose Ourselves This Time" by giddy_london (girl!Frank/Gerard)

AU in which Frankie has always been a girl, Mikey is her best friend, and Gerard Way is an art student living in his mom's basement. Frankie's voice is so tough and sympathetic at the same time, Gerard is tender and ardent, and the story is grittily realistically hot. ~4,600 words


LOTR RPS: (untitled mathom fic) by bagma (Sean Astin/Elijah)

Yum, good hot sex! I always like it when Elijah is as into Sean as vice-versa, and the sex toy was a great way to show it. The last line is a great twist on toppy!Sean</p>

LOTR RPS: "Equipoise" by blythely (Orlando/Billy)

This. Wow. I missed it when it was first posted, but that means I get to rec it now. Orlando growing up and into control, not just sex, but power and bondage, and the promise of Billy challenging and luring at the same time, watching to see if Orlando can do it. QUOTE: "'If you were a girl, Billy, you'd be wet for me, wouldn't you?' and the lurching, dirty shock on Billy's face (tilt, thinks Orlando, tilt and tip) is just fucking exquisite." 5,780 words. AMAZING fic: if you like this kind of thing, I highly recommend.


Bandom Fic: "From Countess to Cabin Boy" AU by formerlydf (Brendon/Ryan/Spencer/Jon)

Fantastic fun Romance, as always-a-girl!Brendon runs away and finds a life of action and adventure on the high seas, as well as true love and really hot sex. Also includes the five Alexes, Gabe, Frank, Jamia, William, Greta, Butcher, and a zillion other band members. Funny as all hell, swordwaving lessons with gratuitous French, snarky byplay and Pirate Hijinkis!


Merlin BBC Fic: "Pastimes & Lifestyles" by netgirl_y2k (Gwen/Morgana)

A fabulous re-think of the BBC Merlin, wherein Morgana has the magic and saves everyone, instead of Merlin. She does it her own way, just perfectly, and gets together with Gwen along the way. How I wish they'd film it this way (it illustrates how easy it is to forget that nearly all shows are male-centric).


That would be lotrips, bandom, merlin (mostly RPS and/or AUs), and doctor who/torchwood. Feeds are at delicious/rss/msilverstar, msil_fanfic_recs on LJ, [info - dreamwidth.org] msil_fanfic_recs_feed on dreamwidth.

I would post recs here more often if it wasn't such a huge pain in the ass. This took me hours to fix up and I hate the format. Anyone have a nice delicious to LJ/DW script that runs on Macs? I'll run a command-line program in the Terminal if I have to.

Thanks for the recs -do you know I'd never read that Dom/Elijah one? How did that happen! I now catch up with a really good fic nearly six years later. Sheesh.

I love that about your lists of recs because there's always something to get my attention so thanks for all the hard work too

Thanks for the Blythely rec. I think I, err, need to reread that.

I don't know what script metafandom uses for posting their links from delicious, but I like their format.

I found myself recently searching out and reading stories in a fandom where I don't know the source--Heroes. Well, I know the very general idea (thanks, Wikipedia), but that's all. But Sylar pushes all the right buttons for me *g*.

I asked metafandom and they said it was old and cranky and too messy to let anyone else see. anatsuno says she can help me get the delicious one working though!

Heh, I have no interest in Sylar whatsoever, I like emo!Peter and Hiro and the menage of Matt Parkman, Mohindar and Molly. And Adrian Pasdar seems to be a fabulous person ;-)

I love the care and obvious joy you have in sharing good finds with everyone. I hope you get something worked out so you can share them here more easily.

And just an aside, I should be able to get started proofing the new set of links later on today.

Thank you, it's such a pleasure when it goes well!

I apparently burned myself out on it before posting. Will try again tonight.

I just found this script in my bookmarks: Delicious Glue. It requires PHP, but if your web server supports PHP, maybe you could run it off your server?
