Lotrips recs

mood: tired (as usual, so boring)

Something old, something new -- I try not to feel guilty about taking so long to rec, because these are good stories and worth reading!


Closet Case part 1, Part 2 (by sally_simpson76, Karl/Dom, set during filming, NC-17). Well-written, fun, different, full of twists and surprises.

Caleidoscope (by shirasade, Dom/Billy, set in future, PG-13). Hard to explain why I like this, I guess it touches my realism kink. Poignant but not sentimental. It’s not a bad life, as lives go, it doesn’t make Dom miserable or lonely (anymore).

Baby (by apple_pi, Billy/Dom, set during filming, NC-17). Wow. and loving and surprising and the best kind of tense. ... the words Billy will say unknown even to him until they tumble from his mouth into Dom's body, every syllable winding Dom tighter and higher. (Kinda like fanfic).

Not So Complicated (by apple_pi, Billy/Bean, Billy/Dom (unrequited), set during filming, NC-17). Gorgeous! The grown-up-ness of this, both of them, no melodrama, just real emotion. And it shows how friendly fucking can be incredibly hot.

...And Chocolate (by airgiodslv, Elijah/Bean, set during filming, NC-17). An extended meditation on the nature of sexuality, fantasy and kinkiness. I like the growing self-awareness and the ambiguous ending, which I choose to interpret as hopeful. (For the Valentine's Day challenge).

Mindfuck (by elzed, Dom/Viggo, probably during filming, NC/17). Fresh tone and voice, surprising twists, probably because it's written by a person who doesn't usually write Lotrips. He doesn’t want to be consulted – if Viggo really wants an answer, he’s already got it. It’s all in the body language, Vig, give me a break and fucking get on with it, he thinks.

Bathtime (by sophrosyne31, Billy/Dom/Elijah, set in New York, NC-17). Lusty cheerful splashy pushy sexy sardonic funny sweet loving threesome smut. Yay!

Gifts (by nienor__niniel, Sean/Elijah, set during Mardi Gras 2005; NC-17) Sean's voice resonates so very strongly in this story, it's full of love and confusion and hope and mature!caring!Elijah, and satisfying sex, and it makes me very happy. Sean gives in and trusts that everything is right, that little bubble of pure joy he's carried inside himself all evening swelling tight in his chest, threatening to choke him and send tears of joy over his cheeks again.

Would It Be A Sin (by beizy, Sean/Elijah, set during Mardi Gras 2005, NC-17). An intimate moment outside of time; both characters aware of but not destroyed by the complexities of life. Full of evocative images and bits of great dialog, all senses included: A noise he'll forget he made tomorrow...

Never Been, part 1, part 2, part 3 unfinished AU series (by ingve9, Billy/Dom, set in a dystopian future, NC-17 for some details). Angsty slow revelations of bad things happening to good people. But defeat lies in lending too much credence to inner bruises and injuries. The going price for liberty being what it is in this present market, Elijah considers his sacrifice small. Beautiful and sad and engrossing and OMG I can't wait for the next chapter.

Love Birds Great crackfic, just read it!



HP
Arrivals (by casirafics, James/Lilly, Maurader-era, hard R). Gorgeous first-time het, James's point of view, sweet and very very sexy at the same time.

Dress Up (by mortifyd, Severus/Harry, postwar?, NC-17). Harry requests Severus dress as a French Maid as a birthday present. Smut ensues.

LOST
Falling and Flying I almost didn't read it because I'm not much into Charlie/Liam, but this... this is different. Intense and sad and full of love. Makes me all teary.

Two Birds, No Waiting Totally unsentimental and cheerfully smutty and real in an important way. Thus proving that OFC het/femmeslash can be fabulous fanfic,

Good Omens
Aziraphael Fell It's a gem. Perfectly twisted and surprising and funny and touching in a subtle way.

Battlestar Galactica
33 Minutes (by cupidsbow, Kara/Lee, Stu/Abel, R). I know nothing of the show, but there's enough background here to keep from getting confused (though it's helpful to know that Zach was Kara's fiancé and Lee's brother). Futuristic wartime angst, vivid descriptions, strong characters and fabulous het UST.

Remember, if you like these stories, please tell the authors -- very gratifying to them.
