Feel free to add any recs to this you want. About anything. I mean, I read most fandoms, and the ones I don't are generally easy to figure out (though obviously I'll miss the in-jokes and references, and anything sci-fi might get complicated). This is in no way all recent fic, or stories for everyone, or even the best-written/made stuff out there. This particular list is just Feel Good Recs, baby.
Nick and Greg and little red ribbon. Smut! The Ribbon Greg Sanders, Private Dick.
Super historically accurate? Not exactly. Do I care? Nope. This series is completely fun and totally hot and just cheers me up sometimes. Why yes, I have read it repeatedly.
LEX LUTHOR IN A PLAID SCHOOLGIRL SKIRT! *ahem* Friends Don't Let Friends Wear Plaid Schoolgirl Skirts
Because Saul Panzer in the Nero Wolfe books is just all kinds of awesome: The Christmas Punch
(And Yuletide, btw. YULETIDE!!!!!! Yuletide *is* Fandom Awesome. I ought to do that again this year).
Pir8fancier's Hate Me/Bite Me Memes story. Harry/Draco. (No, I don't read or especially like Harry Potter. But first of all, grown up, bratty, spoiled Draco is love. And secondly, she took a really stupid and negative internet meme and turned it into porn. I mean love. Yes. That too. Draco was pissed off
A short original, fairy tale-ish fic. The Virgin and the Unicorn
omg, *any* Die Hard 4 Slash if you want hot, kinky porn. Because I Have Spent My Day Watching Psych
CAPSLOCK OF LOVE. The Epic Tale of Rodney & John: Two Girl Scout Cookies In Love
Delicious (pun intended) SGA crackfic.
Slash for the movie "Cursed"...which needed it. But there's no fandom, and no expectation of praise, and the author wrote this bit of perfect
Yuletide again! The Strange and Not Entirely Ineffective Courting of Jon Stewart by Stephen T. Colbert
Yuletide! "Smoke Signals" slash!!! EEEE!!!!! Thank you, fandom! Telling Tales
A small bit of DS porn from Spuffy. So thanks, Spuffy! What They Needed
Ray really is so cute.
More Nick/Greg. The kind of established couple fic that doesn't usually get written. Ruminations on Broken Glass and Bare FeetTetchy
The OG Simon/Jayne fic!
Also: Dear Fandom, you are awesome for introducing me to boysinskirts. Lipstick Vogue
And genderfuck! Thanks for that too, Fandom! Gonna Go to Babylon and Get Me Some Whiskey
more Due South awesomeness. Maybe I ought to just thank Due South. :)
And thanks for authors like Thamiris too. And all her fic. I'll just link to one. Tied to the Wrist
(Smallville and SGA, two of the few large fandoms I will read on a semi-regular basis, even if I stopped watching the shows themselves long ago)
Holmes/Watson slash, for existing at all. Sacrilege
Perfect fucking fanvids like this one---> Closer
Kirk/Spock set to Nine Inch Nails.
I'm missing a lot. And yet babbling on at the same time. Because Fandom has given me so much. I mean, would I ever have discovered all my kinks without it? Would I have learned to tolerate and/or accept other people's kinks without it? And, though I may still harbor a lot of il will toward a lot of het shippers for their general attitude regarding slash and slashers, I have also seen slashers do some completely awesome things, just proving how stupid all those narrow-minded het shipper types are.
And icons! I forgot all about icons! How many precious icons have I gotten over the years???
*ack* Running out of time here...
