LOTRIPS Recs: series (WIP)

mood: productive

This is a semi-random selection of some of my favorite series, most of them WIPs (works in progress). It's not everything, by any means, but it's a start. Remember, if you like the stories, comment to the authors, no matter how late it is or if you can't think of anything special to say, because it makes them feel wonderful.

  • "The First Five Times" (parts 1-3), (parts 4 and 5) by uraneia, set during early filming, Billy/Dom, R. This does a fabulous job with the inarticulateness of men, the way they generally hate to talk about their feelings. Billy's thoughts are just right, about the Thing and Change and the way they worry, and long for each other, but don't dare say anything.

  • LOTRiPS: A Brutal Kind of Love 1/? and Part 2 by georgia_mason, set now-ish, Dom/Billy, angst, mentions of bdsm, R. Wow. Unalloyed angst, there. It hits hard and never lets up, a good antidote to the tendency towards schmoopy fluff.

  • The Billy's Best Series: by Lemur, set during filming, Billy/Orlando. Billy's Best Date, Rated G; Billy's Best Kiss, Rated PG-13; Billy's Best [bleep], Rated NC-17; Billy's Best Bath, Rated PG ; Billy's Best Snuggle, Rated NC-17; Billy's Best Break, Rated PG-13; Billy's Best Pull:Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Rated NC-17; Billy's Best Devil, Rated PG-13; Billy's Best Impromptu Fish Party, Rated PG; Billy's Best Fight, Rated PG-13; Billy's Best Second Date: Part 1, Part 2, Rated NC-17; Billy's Best Friend, Rated PG; Billy's Best Goodbye, Rated NC-17; A lovely series, especially the mutually angsty early bits, and the growing heat of sexual exploration. (Jealous Dom, for those who care). WIP but being updated.

  • Braced for Disaster: part 1, part 2, part 3 and related drabble. By montmorency, set during filming, Elijah/Orlando, R. Elijah feels young and unsure of his sexuality, but Orlando is persistent (in a nice way). Vivid descriptions of how it feels, and a fresh take on the situation makes this stand out. WIP, but she promises a part 4.

  • Rain Chain and The Patron Saint of Lost Things, by telesilla, set after filming, Sean/Viggo, PG-13. Very lyrical, great Bean inner voice, things implied and hinted.

  • Complicated series by telesilla and padawanhilary; set during filming, Sean/Viggo, BDSM, rated mostly NC-17. WIP but updated frequently. Classic BDSM freshly presented with sympathetic characters, so Sean's upset at having to leave New Zealand and Viggo does a great deal of thinking and not thinking and learning about submission.

  • AUs - Alternate Universes

  • Robotic AU: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5. By chaya, AU, Dom/Elijah, ratings up to NC-17. Billy and Dom work in a robotics lab, Elijah is the most recent version. Orlando and Viggo are also robots, other cast members appear. Done with wit and sympathy, interesting characters, good dialog. WIP, but fairly recently updated.

  • Lotrips: Beyond the Sea. AU, series, Dom/Billy, ratings vary. Dom is a burned-out social worker on a cruise, and Billy is a lounge singer on the ship. Other cast members turn up in interesting guises. Very satisfying series, with nuggets of lovely hot sex.

  • "Fatherhood, Football, and Other Contact Sports" AU series: by dylan_dufresne, Billy/Dom, G to NC-17. AU in which Billy is a sports doctor, divorced with a son, and Dom is a football star. Tons of sexual tension, nicely written, compusively readable. Currently a WIP, but looks like it will be finished.

  • "Dulce et Decorum" (AU series). By laeglass, Viggo/Orlando, PG to R. Viggo, Sean and Dom are London detectives, Elijah and Jude Law are murder victims, Orlando was Jude's flatmate, other cast members appear as well. WIP, being updated, links from each chapter to the next

  • "Valient Effort" AU series, by thepsychicclam and eleanor_lavish, Billy/Orlando, Dom/Elijah, Sean Astin/Viggo (!), set in New York, G to NC-17. In this AU storyverse, Billy, Dom, Elijah, and Orlando are all living in New York City and are part of a band called "Valiant Effort". Overall pairings Billy/Orlando, Dom/Elijah, and Viggo/Sean. This is a WIP but still updated. It has an angsty sweetness that really works for me. Plus: good sex scenes.

All my LOTRiPS recs.

Are you up to do a quick, hopefully easy beta job? It is the second part of Wing Development: Flourish. Let me know if this is a good time for you to do beta work. And believe me, if it isn't, I totally understand. Also, if you do want it, what e-mail address should I send it to?

Thank you for doing this. I can't rec the Complicated series highly enough. It's fabulous; one of the best I've ever read.

telesilla and padawanhilary are two of my favorite writers, so I love sharing.
