All these are out of the ordinary in some nifty way. Enjoy, and don't forget to leave feedback, as it makes writers enormously gratified.

Shimmer (by lelise; set during filming; Miranda/Liv; NC-17 for girlsex). The chemistry (in various senses), the competition, the tenuousness of everything... Bittersweet and hard edged and it leaves little ghost tendrils in my head. (Thanks to lobelia321 for the rec).

Images (by tarteaucitron; set during filming; Dom/Viggo; NC-17). Gorgeous, different, strong, sexual.

Off-Balance (by sparkythehamstr; set April 2005 after Dom does the Kimmell show; Dom, Billy (but not like that); PG-13 for language). I know I'm perverse, and this is my favorite of the Kimmel-show-stories. It feels entirely realistic to me This is beautifully, painfully, perfectly done. Dom knew from experience that any time Billy's face was that blank, it was because he was insanely, incalculably pissed off.

tune in but it's all right (by flusteredspeech; set in New Zealand in 2017; Billy & Dom, pg-13) Friendship fic floats my boat. Fantastic dialog, great descriptions, a wonderful feeling that their lives really do go on and yet the love remains.

AU WIPs I'm enjoying
the king of new orleans (by traveller; AU; set in New Orleans; Viggo/Orlando, other cast; NC-17). Full of lovely images like earth-shattering whimper. I like that she's not pushing the strangeness of the situation too much, but more letting the personalities come through.

A Bad Case of Loving You (by chaosmanor; AU set in a teaching hospital in the UK; Orlando/Viggo; NC-17). Amazing, sweet, sexy, dominant Orlando / sub Viggo, with lots of very erotic kinky sex and modern healthcare politics.

Apparently, Size Matters (by shaenie, AU, NC-17, Elijah/Pet/Viggo) scientist!Elijah is perfect, with his clumsiness and his calculations and his glasses and his unacknowledged desires. and Pet, hot tentacle sex. I never knew I could appreciate that. Of course, these writers...

And yay! west__trips is getting updated some more! Fabulous Old West AU, underlying Orlando/Billy, with Cate, Dom, Sean, Elijah, Harry, Karl, and more as supporting characters.

Bare Naked (by cupiscent; Draco/Ginny; set after the war; NC-17). Hot het with a smart but imperfect Ginny! and a smart snarky but also imperfect Draco! Gorgeous!

All my recs are now in a recs memories list.
