Guinevere of the High Seas by [livejournal.com profile] hyel is Gwen/Morgana, PG-13 and it is PIRATES!! We all know how I love the pirates. I also love it that this is a colonial re-setting of the Pendragon myth. Works so very well here. Of course I want MORE. But who wouldn't want more of Guinevere, the pirate queen? The escaped slave who, with the help of her former mistress, takes over the pirate ship that once held them captive (and Morgana for ransom)? Srsly? *thud*

Amateur Deconstruction by [livejournal.com profile] harper_m is Criminal Minds, Emily/JJ, MATURE. Astonishingly good fic that's a wonderful character study of Emily and JJ. Everything about this fic rings true, especially Emily's reactions and this is really an Emily fic even though it's JJ's pov, which is astonishingly difficult to pull off, but it's done perfectly here. A BAU profiler, particularly a female one, would have serious control and intimacy issues. Nothing about romancing and/or seducing Emily would be easy. Amazing writing. I love all of harper's writing, but I seem to be especially fond of the one's she's...not so sure about? ;)

The Truth Will Get You Laid by [livejournal.com profile] thrace_ is SGA, Cadman/Keller, PG-13. Hilarious story about the accident-prone Cadman and 'truthiness'. Great stuff! you had me at the title. *G*

How to Survive a Broken Heart by [livejournal.com profile] faithtastic is Buffy/Tara, BTVS, Mature. Really fantastic piece that uses the PWP setup for a really fascinating character study.

written for [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang:
My Heart is Plotting Treason by [livejournal.com profile] pirateygoodness is Gossip Girl, RPF, AU, Mature. It's 1964. Blake is one of the CIA's finest, even if she does tend to do most of her spying dressed as a gentleman. Leighton is a Russian girl working for the greasiest, most corrupt Bolshevik gangsters in London. Oldest story in the world. Srsly? It's as good as it sounds. And then some. And pirateygoodness can WRITE.
leavethesky: (queer as in fuck you)
This is just f@#ing incredible!

The Truth the Girl Knows by [livejournal.com profile] trixiefirecra is a crossover of The L Word/BTVS, Buffy/Bette Porter (!!), Very Mature and it is EXTRAORDINARY and not just because she quotes one of my favorite writers (Ali Smith). Incredible writing, incredibly hot sex and the pairing?!? Inspired!

The incredible icon is [livejournal.com profile] sravenk's. You know you want one.
A Thousand Enemies by [livejournal.com profile] harper_m (on [livejournal.com profile] ralst's P&P site) is Friday Night Lights, Lyla/Tyra, Mature. This is wonderful. Harper really captures the hell of living in a small southern town and the incredible class divisions that seem to be magnified in such a small space. Love the details (the scene where Lyla has to get out of the truck to open the gate rang so true to me who once lived on a farm) and the fact that Tyra is working so hard to deprive herself of the thing she wants most - Lyla.

Love is a Seasonal Thing by [livejournal.com profile] escritoireazul is Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Lena/Bridget, PG-13, Yuletide fic. This is a lovely fic that will leave you breathless and in love. Beautiful.

Never Brought to Mind by [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu is Faith/Dawn, Mature, BTVS. I LOVE this fic. It takes place long after S7 when Dawn, now a college student, begins to notice that no one remembers her. queenzulu does wonderful things with the amnesia trope, reversing it into something fresh and new. And it makes perfect sense with canon, which for some reason, is so incredibly satisfying.
Because Xmas is really the straightest holiday EVER (except my anniversary/Valentine's Day) and I can't take anymore!

Taking Me Home by [livejournal.com profile] jennyo is Faith/Jo, Eureka, BTVS crossover and hotter than hell! [livejournal.com profile] jennyo really is the master of pr0n, particularly oral sex. nobody writes it better. Period. I'm so tired of, "she kissed her way down ____'s body and then, boom, orgasm and straight to the cuddling." I know it's hard. I can't write a good smut scene to save my life. If you're trying to write a sex scene, read the experts. and jennyo definitely counts as one. And possibly two and three.

Also from [livejournal.com profile] jennyo, Technique which is BSG, Kat/Roslyn.

The Same Old Story by [livejournal.com profile] minim_calibre is BTVS, Buffy/Faith, graveyard sex.

Cultural Exchange by [livejournal.com profile] quasiradiant is Teyla/Weir, SGA, dildo sex.

Funtime, BTVS, Buffy/Faith. More dildos.

Sucker Love by Nifra Idril, Buffy/Faith, BTVS. Hatesex!

Truth or Dare and The Gift by Meghan O'Brien are original although they come through the Xena fandom and both are incredibly hot.

Speaking of hot original fic in the Xena fandom, Artemis Callaghan is another great writer who writes incredibly hot, um, erotica. Try her Hen Night series and Something So Close to Love. Both having linking issues, so just go to her page at the Academy (click on her name above).
Since I am the grinchiest of all Grinches I thought I'd put together a Xmas post and spread some femslash cheer. Tis the season, etc. And what better present (as [livejournal.com profile] mantaraggio often reminds me) than pr0n!!

So some of my fav dirty fics or fics w/the bestest sex, in no particular order:
Champagne Supernova by [livejournal.com profile] fembuck is Gemma/Felicity, A Great and Terrible Beauty and it is SUPERhot!

Like the End of the World Still Counts by [livejournal.com profile] pirateygoodness is Racetrack/Seelix, BSG.

Reason by [livejournal.com profile] harper_m is Ash/Scribbs, Murder in Suburbia. School uniforms and hot sex!

Six Keys by by politicx is Scully/Reyes, X-Files.

The Conqueror's Touch by Xena's Little Bitch is Xena/Gabrielle.

Untitled from [livejournal.com profile] fembuck is a ficlet that's a sort of incredibly porny spinoff from her ongoing Twilight fic, Alice/Bella. Vampires, periods and hot, hot sex.

The Show by BL Miller is Xena/Gabrielle. Gabrielle and Xena unwittingly sit through a live sex show at an all-women taverna.

Missionary Position by JustSkipIt is Willow/Tara, BTVS. This isn't soft and fluffy W/T. Tara is an evangelical xtian who seduces girls to Jesus by whatever means necessary. Hilarious and incredibly hot!

What Do You Do by Imagine is Xena/Ofc. The OFC is a whore Xena meets as a 17 year-old warlord. Hotter than hell!

Five Times Jill Barnhart Had Sex With Lindsay Boxer, And One Time She Didn’t by [livejournal.com profile] trancer21 is Lindsay/Jill, Women's Murder Club and it's unfuckingbelievably hot!


um, wow that's a lot of smut. And there's sooooo much more out there. but only so much time. Just enough to get you in the spirit...so to speak. Happy holidays!! More smut to come...feel free to help me out. With more fic that is. *G*

ETA one of my fav smutfics EVER, Pit Stop, SPN (I know! wtf?!), Jo/Jess. Soooooo pornaliciously perfect.
So, a few recs (because my torec list is completely off the hook!):

First, some BTVS:
Ghost by Sailor80 is Buffy/Willow and some Faith/Buffy, Mature, novella. I don't think I've ever rec'ed this pairing before, but that's not because I don't like it. It is one of the rarest animals in the femslash world. Following the events of S7 and the closure of the Hellmouth, Buffy wanders aimlessly, seeming to become more and more detached. Is she detached, going crazy, or is there something more magical at work? What I love about this fic (besides the fact that it's a fantastic story and Faith figures prominently) is the depiction of the aging slayer(s) and witch and the emotional complexity of their interactions as the new generation of Watchers and slayers try to take over what were once their roles. Extraordinary. Also, did I mention there's a prophecy? And the Hellmouth? Perfect story. PERFECT!

these two come via [livejournal.com profile] firstmoment's BTVS recs:

when all the wild summer was in her gaze by [livejournal.com profile] solvent90 is Buffy/Faith, PG. This is a short and beautifully breathless fic about the aging slayers.
Faith dreams, sometimes, at abrupt intervals, of Buffy as she used to be

Gemini by [livejournal.com profile] only_passenger is Buffy/Faith, PG. and it's just extraordinary. If she could cut herself in half, part of Buffy would follow Faith anywhere.

Then some Criminal Minds:
two entangled fics from [livejournal.com profile] _astralis: Real Time and Colour and Light the Bitter Dark, both JJ/Emily, PG. These are both lovely and understated glimpses of this fragile relationship as it develops in the stolen, secret moments within and between the horror of their work. Beautiful. The Will storyline has really destroyed this pairing for me, but astralis does a wonderful job of returning this pairing to us.

and finally, some Pepa/Silvia:
Over Again by [livejournal.com profile] random_flores is Pepa/Silvia, Mature and was written as part of [livejournal.com profile] ralst's Pepa/Silvia ficathon. This is another exceptional fic from flores. What I love about this fic is the way she fills in the past for us, revealing so much about the characters and their motivations. As you're all probably aware, I love this pairing, but there isn't really a lot of story for them, which is either a problem or an opportunity and flores makes the most of it.

Shit Happens by [livejournal.com profile] omiceti (omiceti is back!!!!) is PG-13. This is really a stolen moment at the beach for our girls and it's absolutely lovely.

There's more pepa/silvia fic (that I haven't read yet or that was written by me) and spectacular vids at the Pepa/Silvia ficathon so check it out! I'm hoping this is only the beginning of MUCH more Pepa/Silvia fic and work because this canon pairing is just too hot and lovely to pass up.

Phew!
Did anyone else see The Closer tonight? Unfuckingbelievably good! Just when all of my fav female-centric dramas are circling the drain (In Plain Sight has managed to castrate once-kickass!Mary in just two eps, Saving Grace is just too Xtian for me), The Closer frickin' Delivers. No, there's no femslash, but DAMN!

As for the rest of my femslash universe...I've been very, very sick involving hospital time, etc. I even missed IDF, which...is just so very, very wrong. I'd rather miss Xmas and New Year's and I'll throw in that other holiday, Easter, or maybe Groundhog Day. I do know that it produced some knockout fic which I'll get around to reading and rec'ing at some point.

I have a few more recs from [livejournal.com profile] femslash08, but really, I've yet to read a fic from that con that isn't rec-worthy. Srsly.

[livejournal.com profile] jengrrrl's Hope for the Hopeless, South of Nowhere, Spencer/Ashley, Mature is astonishing and right. Ashley's gone through rehab, but Spencer still doesn't trust her. This is very much Ashley's fic and the voice is spot on.

[livejournal.com profile] liz_estrada'z Never the Twain Shall Meet is a Buffyverse AU, Faith/Cordelia, Mature. No one gets Faith quite like [livejournal.com profile] liz_estrada. She's one of my fav Faith writers and this fic, even though it's Cordelia's POV, doesn't disappoint. Cordelia's father moves them to Boston where she meets bad girl Faith.

Rekindling by [livejournal.com profile] shelled_avenger is Harry Potter, Luna/Tonks, Mature and it's a lovely post-war story.

Love is a Painful Thing (The Second Best Mix)[livejournal.com profile] escritoireazul is a collection of 'second best' pairings from a variety of fandoms including Faith/Dawn (second best to Faith/Buffy), Blue Crush (Eden/Lena instead of Eden/Anne Marie) and a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants/She's the Man crossover that hits my soccer kink. This is an extraordinary fic on so many levels. Great writing and characterization and really, the Faith/Dawn would have been more than enough for me, the rest were a wonderful bonus. Extraordinary fic.

Like I said, I'm still making my way through these and everything's rec'able, so enjoy!

edited to correct attribution on Rekindling. Thanks [livejournal.com profile] sporkmetender!
How do I love my femslashers? Let me count the ways:

more smut under the cut )
[livejournal.com profile] thelastgoodname gets her second rec in a row. This time for her own recs for The Office (Karen/Pam) and BTVS (Buffy/Faith). Ahhhhhh, I love it when the fic comes to me! *g* It's almost like having minions...except for the part where they don't do my bidding (dammit!). Have to work on that.
Thank you [livejournal.com profile] thelastgoodname! She always finds the good stuff.

Be warned, there are a few het and even gen recs mixed in here. I'm not sure what 'gen' means but I'm sure it's something frightening. ;) Proceed at your own risk. heh.
leavethesky: (patsy)
I remember begging for this particular pairing long ago and [livejournal.com profile] daemonluna (I think?) brought this brilliant fic to my attention:

Her Beauty and Her Terror by [livejournal.com profile] ijemanja is Wednesday/Harmony, PG-13, BTVS x Addams Family. For those of you who loved Addams Family Values and noticed that Wednesday's nemesis is none other than BTVS's Harmony (and hoped for slashy goodness someday!), you're in for a gorgeous treat. Srsly. The characterization is PERFECT which leads to unbelievable hilarity and deliciousness because of course Wednesday is working at Wolfram & Hart. Of. Course! This is like an early B-day present just for me (even though it wasn't:). It is made of nineteen kinds of win!!


Sorry for the lack of recs lately, but between classes and my frighteningly large torec list I just want to crawl under my desk and whine. With chocolate.
Yes, it's the beginning of the semester...and I'm already burned out. Just a quickie because there are so many great fics going on.

Virtue by [livejournal.com profile] faith1922 is BTVS, Buffy/Faith, R. Wonderful fic that deals with Buffy's dark side. Of course Faith is the only one who can bring her back. Great characterization, writing, and a believable alternative to S7.

And Tissue by [livejournal.com profile] shati is Buffy/Faith, PG. I may have recced this already, but it's brilliant and worthy of more praise. Stunning writing and a great story in a 1600ish words.

from the Dawn round over at [livejournal.com profile] femslash_minis:
Goodnight, Demon Slayer, Goodnight by [livejournal.com profile] escritoireazul is Faith/Dawn, PG-13. This is really Dawn's fic and it shimmers with her personality. Understated and almost sweet. I can't believe I'm saying that about a fic with the dark slayer, but, yeah. Faith still has her edges, but she gets to have a little sunlight as well.

A New Shade of Green by [livejournal.com profile] callmesandy is Dawn/Faith, PG-13. Again, Dawn's voice, so this sparkles more than your typical Faith fic. Dawn and Faith are undercover to protect another pathetic chosen one. There are some LOL lines in this one like:
"Thanks for waking me up," Dawn said, rolling her eyes. "Do you want to play Boggle or something?"

"You're sleeping with Faith, not Willow, baby."


Ah yes. I needed some Faith today. Thank you universe (and femslash writers) for bringing it.

There's also Where the River Meets the Dawn by [livejournal.com profile] alixtii which is Dawn/River, R and it's obviously a Firefly/BTVS crossover. Alixtii manages to make these universes collide with startling and again, sweet results. Serenity lands on the beach in front of all those babyslayers...and the Key. This moves effortlessly back and forth between River's lyrical, streaming thoughts and Dawn's more down-to-earth voice.
My new obsession is updating my own [livejournal.com profile] alien_altars-inspired rec list...too frequently. I think this is proof that inspiration and often brilliance can come from a new approach to what should be a tired old cliché. Or it's proof that I'm insane. This is also, as usual, a cry for help. In the sense that I'm always looking for more cliché fic to add to my collection. Bring 'em if you've got 'em. Support my madness.

My list again:

About to die, must have hot sex
Like You Really Like It by Xena's Little Bitch is Xena/Gabrielle, Mature, impending apocalypse...again.

Aliens made us do it
Upset, Upended, and Upgraded is SG-1, Pink Rabbit. Also from the SG-1 fandom is Another Sip of Wine by JSwrdsmth.

Amnesia

Fade Out to Black by [livejournal.com profile] bluflamingo is Mature, Laura Cadman/Katie Brown. Wonderful fic!

I just recced two Xena fics by Ella Quince that met this criteria:

The Tavernkeeper's Sister and Well of Sighs both by Ella Quince. Both are NC-17, both classic and both stories use amnesia as a plot device to very different ends. I'm convinced Ella Quince (yeah, I finally get it -- Eloquence) is the pen name of a professional writer. Her prose is just that good. It's efficient and elegant with moments of absolutely breathtaking writing. But beyond that, the stories are wonderful and her classic Xena and Gabrielle are flawless.

and there's also the wonderful Purest Love by Seana James.

and Everything You Know by Nut56

Bound by Bailey B, J/7, Voyager. There's also Symphony Twisted also J/7.

There is No Fucking in Hades by [livejournal.com profile] mirabile_dictu is SGA, Teyla/Elizabeth, NC-17 and if I haven't recced this already I should have. It's EXQUISITE!

Je me souviens by [livejournal.com profile] queen_zulu is Buffy/Faith, mature.

In the SGA fandom a standout from [livejournal.com profile] alien_altars: Fade Out to Black by [livejournal.com profile] bluflamingo is Laura Cadman/Katie Brown and the author deftly uses amnesia to essentially recreate Atlantis for Cadman. Amazingly done.

Another brilliant fic from the SGA fandom, must be something here by [livejournal.com profile] lilysaid is Teyla/Sora, Mature.

Aphrodisiacs/Sex pollen
from the Xena fandom there's The Enchantment by friction.

Daring by Blaze is SG-1, Sam/Janet.

Caught masturbating
The Water's Edge by Tegan Jovanka, Xena, NC-17.

Everyone thinks we're doing it<
Rumours of Love by Ella Quince is Xena/Gab, Mature.

Forced marriage
From SG1 and [livejournal.com profile] alien_altars there's the hilarious and entertaining Hey Baby, Let's go to Pegasus" which is Sam Carter/Laura Cadman.

Forced to share a bed/sleeping bag/tent
Fuzzy morning after or "do you remember what we did last night?"
Genderswitch (one or both women is turned into a man)

Huddling for warmth

Snow by Rebelgirl is Voyager, T/7

Insomnia


Jealousy
Family by Harriet (SG-1, Sam/Janet) is the first fic to come to mind for this category.

Rumours of Love by Ella Quince is Xena, Mature. This could also be characterized as Everyone Thinks We're Doing It and is.

Kid fic
ugh!
eta okay, I've changed my mind. You MUST check out [livejournal.com profile] wizened_cynic's AJ fic (scroll to the bottom and start with the fic there). This is the crackiest crack!verse ever. This version of the crackverse has Alex knocked up at 16 and A.J. is the result. The rest of the cracky Alex/Lorelai is told from kidpov.

Multiple universes (the characters meet versions of themselves from a parallel universe)
Wow, I just realized that I completely misunderstood this category. Most of these are one character meeting another version of another character from another universe. uh, yeah.
I think SG-1 pretty much pwns this category. As One by Harriet has an alternate Janet coming back.
and Everything by Pink Rabbit involve alternate Sam's and are two of my fav fics in this fandom.

Tempus Fugit by me (yes, I'm a walking cliche!) is BTVS, Willow/Tara, Faith/Buffy.

The Broken Thread by Ella Quince is Xena, Mature.

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained by Tonya Muir is Xena, Mature. Xena chooses to stay in the "Remember Nothing" AU with the slave, Gabrielle.

16 Hours by Bailey B, J/7, Voyager.

Pregnancy (hey,women can get pregnant too)
[livejournal.com profile] wizened_cynic's Alex/Lorelei fpreg Rosemary, Rosemary over in the [livejournal.com profile] bun_in_oven comm devoted to that strange fic creature known as fpreg.

Found Family is SGA Teyla/Sora

That Unfamiliar Activity by Xena's Little Bitch is Xena, Mature.

Baby, the Skies'll Be Blue is Imagine Me & You, Rachel/Luce, PG-13, mystical lesbian pregnancy!

It's Yours is Ash/Scribbs, PG-13, Murder in Suburbia (of course!) by the goddess herself, [livejournal.com profile] ralst.

Slave fic
I'm pretty sure Xena's Conqueror stories pwn this category so I'll only mention a few:
The Conqueror's Touch by Xena's Little Bitch.
Penance by Penumbra
The Gift by Megan O'Brien is uber.
The Gift by Carola "Ryûchan" Eriksson is PG-13 and turns the tables making Xena the slave. Also by Carola is Gladiator which is warrior!Gabrielle hotness!
Tale One:Journey's End by LJ Maas is essentially a sexfest that goes a bit crazy at the end in search of a plot. But definitely, entirely of the hothothot!!
Conquering Liaisons is another Conqueror fic.

Telepathy/Soulbond
Tether by Harriet is SG-1, Sam/Janet. Not my fav Harriet fic, but still good.
A Warrior By Any Other Name by Melissa Good is actually only the first part of this enormous Xena, soulbond epic.

Già Cogli Angeli, Ivanova? by Penumbra is Babylon 5, Susan/Talia.
also Babylon 5, Susan/Talia Night by Metis. Hot telepathic sex in a shuttlecar.

Trapped together in a cave, shack, etc
A Moment of Truth by Curiositee is Xena, Mature.

Apparently, "trapped together in a turbolift" is such a cliché in the Voyager fandom that [livejournal.com profile] ralst's P&P has devoted an entire page to these fics: Turbolift Stories.

Undercover as a prostitute
I got nothing. sorry.

Undercover as lovers or a married couple
Chicago 5am by L.N. James is Xena uber/original and it's a great story with a smokinghot love scene.

Not sure if this counts, but Weir and Cadman posing as a couple in order to stay together on a Wraith slave planet is surely worth something: A Place Called Home by [livejournal.com profile] muppetmanda is SGA, Weir/Cadman, Mature.

Undercover(s) by [livejournal.com profile] racethewind10 is CSIMiami, Natalia/Calleigh, WIP. A serial killer is targeting lesbian couples: one blonde w/blue eyes, one brunette w/dark eyes. hmmm, sounds like most of the f/f pairings on my list.

Dating Undercover by [livejournal.com profile] the_girl_20 is WMC, Jill/Cindy, R.

Undercover by [livejournal.com profile] mercury_chkita is WMC again, Lindsay/Cindy, R. Same prompt from ralst.

Virginity or virgin sacrifice
I'm not sure if this is what the mods had in mind, but Ella Quince's Return from Poteidaia is an extraordinary first-time/virginity fic. Then again, half the Xena fics are first-time fics.

Voyuerism


We almost died, must have hot sex
Near Miss by Meghan O'Brien is Xena, uber, Mature (of course!).

I'm Right Here by Rebecca Hall is X/G, Mature.

Yenta
Yes! My first Yenta fic! Profiler, Profiled by [livejournal.com profile] lysachan is Criminal Minds, Emily/JJ, PG-13. Garcia's the yenta...of course.

That's all I've got now. I'll add more later...

edited to remove the first time ever I've had to remove a fic. I thought it ended at the second installment (it really, really should have), but the author added two more parts of truly horrific (as in disturbingly violent including rape scenes) stuff. I don't get it. It was a great fic...



You should also check out [livejournal.com profile] ein_myria's very own femslash cliché rec list. There is some overlap, but a LOT less that you'd think.
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ralst's Xena Love interest poll and a comment on that from [livejournal.com profile] thelastgoodname, I realized that for the first time in ANY fandom I have an OTP: Xena/Gabrielle. I'm sure you've noticed that when it comes to pairings I'm a bit of a ho. But not when it comes to this particular fandom. So, if you're looking for the odd Xena/Callisto or Xena/Lao Ma, sorry, I probably won't have it here. I mean, I don't even bother putting the pairing on my recs, y'all! wtf?

xena rec of the day:
Another one I've recced before: Penance by Penumbra is a dark, BDSM, Conqueror, NC-17. This is the first of a dark trilogy about the Conqueror and the slave.


I sing the song of Xena the Conqueror
Who with a heart of darkness loved light itself.
...

I sing the song of Gabrielle the Bard
Who with a heart of purest gold loved darkness itself.


Incredibly intense and beautifully written fic.


Also, [livejournal.com profile] anomalys has added even more Xena recs, plus an HP (Hermione/Tonks). Yes, peeps, it looks like my dream has come true and there's another crazy femslash reccer out there! there's just not enough w00t in the world for that!

Also also, [livejournal.com profile] ralst has added a bunch of Xena fics (and media) to P&P. And by Xena fics I mean Xena/Gab.

Bionic Woman
[livejournal.com profile] jennyo re-edits the pilot (in caps) with evil gay sexy results!The Story of Lesbian Robots and Hatesexin' Love. She follows that with the smoking hot fic A Serious Lack of Impulse Control which is Mature (of course!) BTVS/Bionic Woman crossover, Faith/Sarah. Sarah's going hunting and finds Faith. Faith's not Jaimie, but she'll do. Love Sarah's 'voice' in this one, the identity confusion and cyborgisms. There's a malfunction in the wetware somewhere, replacing Faith with Jamie. Not good. Will have to be repaired.You'll need a whole new ranking of hot for this one. gah!
I have had this fic in my enormous 'toread' pile for a while now, but then [livejournal.com profile] thelastgoodname put it at the top of her monster rec (3 posts worth of recs!) and I decided to break down and give up some hours to fic. And holy fucking WOW!

The Devil's Gate by [livejournal.com profile] hesychasm is a BTVS/SPN crossover and it's Faith/Jo, NC-17. This is a SPECTACULAR fic that reads more like a novella of a Faith the Vampire Slayer episode. I have to confess that I've never watched Supernatural (sorry, two guys saving the supernatural day is so not my kink) so I can't weigh in on Jo's characterization at all, but she read absolutely true throughout the fic. It's told from Jo's point of view and has everything from an absolutely stunning story involving her dead father and her quest to redeem him to the ultimate/inevitable meetup with Faith and a host of baby slayers to incredible and evocative writing. This is intricately plotted and incorporates all of your favs from the Jossverse -- Angel, Buffy, Andrew and Willow -- and [livejournal.com profile] hesychasm's descriptions of the spells involved is, well, freakin' magic. Also, hot sex. And did I mention Faith? [livejournal.com profile] hesychasm's Faith is the dark, complex Faith from Angel and earlier seasons of BTVS, not the whitewashed Faith from S7. The Faith I love and [livejournal.com profile] hesychasm's use of such a limited POV lets Faith keep her secrets. Go. Read. Leave the love.
So [livejournal.com profile] ein_myria suggested that we go through our rec lists and find recs that fit each cliche and/or link to any fics that may fit the strict criteria of the [livejournal.com profile] alien_altars challenge. Of course, I'm all over that. think of it as, um, inspiration all you cliche ficcers;

About to die, must have hot sex

Like You Really Like It by Xena's Little Bitch is Xena/Gabrielle, Mature, impending apocalypse...again.

Aliens made us do it
Upset, Upended, and Upgraded is SG-1, Pink Rabbit. Also from the SG-1 fandom is Another Sip of Wine by JSwrdsmth.

That Unfamiliar Activity by Xena's Little Bitch is Xena, Mature.

Slave fic
I'm pretty sure Xena's Conqueror stories pwn this category so I'll only mention a few:
The Conqueror's Touch by Xena's Little Bitch.
Penance by Penumbra
The Gift by Megan O'Brien is uber.
The Gift by Carola "Ryûchan" Eriksson is PG-13 and turns the tables making Xena the slave.

Telepathy/Soulbond
Tether by Harriet is SG-1, Sam/Janet. Not my fav Harriet fic, but still good.
A Warrior By Any Other Name by Melissa Good is actually only the first part of this enormous Xena, soulbond epic.

Già Cogli Angeli, Ivanova? by Penumbra is Babylon 5, Susan/Talia.
also Babylon 5, Susan/Talia Night by Metis. Hot telepathic sex in a shuttlecar.

Trapped together in a cave, shack, etc
A Moment of Truth by Curiositee is Xena, Mature.

Undercover as a prostitute
I got nothing. sorry.

Undercover as lovers or a married couple
Chicago 5am by L.N. James is Xena uber/original and it's a great story with a smokinghot love scene.

Not sure if this counts, but Weir and Cadman posing as a couple in order to stay together on a Wraith slave planet is surely worth something: A Place Called Home by [livejournal.com profile] muppetmanda is SGA, Weir/Cadman, Mature.

Virginity or virgin sacrifice
I'm not sure if this is what the mods had in mind, but Ella Quince's Return from Poteidaia is an extraordinary first-time/virginity fic. Then again, half the Xena fics are first-time fics.


Voyuerism


We almost died, must have hot sex
Near Miss by Meghan O'Brien is Xena, uber, Mature (of course!).


Yenta


That's all I've got now. I'll add more later...

edited to remove the first time ever I've had to remove a fic. I thought it ended at the second installment (it really, really should have), but the author added two more parts of truly horrific (as in disturbingly violent including rape scenes) stuff. I don't get it. It was a great fic...
But first, a non[livejournal.com profile] femslash07 rec:

She Likes a Prizefight by Telanu ([livejournal.com profile] somniesperus) is Devil Wears Prada, Andrea/Miranda, Mature. [livejournal.com profile] thelastgoodname recced this and I checked it out to discover that it is in fact for the win! Srsly. Absolutely flawless voice and characterization and incredibly hot. It's miraculous the way telanu manages to keep Miranda Priestley in character yet have her fall for good-girl Andy. It's almost sweet. Almost. :) This is an astonishingly well-written fic.

Now, the [livejournal.com profile] femslash07 recs:
Please understand that I haven't managed to read all of the stories yet (I do have a life and a GF and everything) so if you know of something I missed, please let me know! This is only my first round of recs, so know that there are a lot more coming!

but according to fashion by [livejournal.com profile] quasiradiant is Devil Wears Prada, emily/serena, emily/jocelyn, R. Told in vignettes and flashbacks, this is Emily's story of ambition and almost love.

Bloom and Grow by [livejournal.com profile] musesfool is Firefly, River/Inara, Mature. Actually, this was my assignment and I'm SO glad I had to bail because [livejournal.com profile] musesfoool does wonderful things with this pairing. River is perfectly...River wanting to learn from Inara. With River, there are no sharp edges or angry words, the way there are between Inara and the captain, and no jealousy or fear of sin to cast shadows on the sanctity of who Inara is, or what she does--just the easy flow of two bodies becoming one flesh, broken bits slowly rubbing smooth.

Tissue by [livejournal.com profile] shati is Buffy/Faith, PG-13. Buffy and Faith meet up in Cleveland. There's coffee, demons, and that scar....

The Same Old Story by [livejournal.com profile] minim_calibre is Buffy/Faith, R. Ahhhhh yes, hot, hot, hot cemetery sex by someone who can frickin' write (and who loves parentheses as much as I do).

Girl in the War by [livejournal.com profile] callmesandy is Bufftverse, Faith/Dawn, R-ish. post-Chosen. Dawn's all grown-up and Watcher-ish and Faith's trying to stay the bad girl...and almost succeeding.

and [livejournal.com profile] mantaraggio recced this fic to me and she was exactly right: Blood and Thunder, a Cha-Cha Challenge by [livejournal.com profile] phaballa is Missy/Torrance, R, set in an AU of roller derby (!!) instead of cheerleading. This is like my special happy place from now on. Srsly. Best. Universe. Ever! She's pretty sure there's nothing better than Missy, though. Well, maybe winning nationals. Because that? Would fucking rock. Yep, manta knows me so well...

more recs soon...

eta thanks to [livejournal.com profile] thelastgoodname for supplying Telanu's LJ ID.

BTVS

I'm trying to return to recs, so I'm going to jump back on that horse with something I just read.
via [livejournal.com profile] femslash_today
if you keep on looking up at night, the stars will all appear by [livejournal.com profile] bestpossibility is BTVS, Anya/Tara, PG-13. I've read some really great 'heaven' fics for BTVS and Angel and this can certainly be added to the list.

This is how things work in heaven.

One night she thinks, "I want something different," and a building appears in front of her.


Really wonderful story and characterization. Speaking of giving underused characters their due...
[livejournal.com profile] cadence_k just posted the master list of Kennedy slash on [livejournal.com profile] femslash_minis. I haven't had a chance to read all of them yet, because I am not really on the internets. I am, in fact, writing a paper. I am not on the internets! For serious.

But you should go read them and I will enjoy the slashtacticness through you.

Oh! Wait, I did read [livejournal.com profile] thelastgoodname's Kennedy/Dawn, which rocked like a very rocking thing and blew my mind with the many-layered metagoodness, but I was saving the r3c for a moment when I actually had my brain back. Guess I blew that to hell didn't I? :)

Go. Read. Leave the love. Or make the love. Or both.

also, GIP! because I so want to see this movie instead of writing a paper.

eta - hint, hint. the 'current music' selection is linkable and downloadable. 'cause I have nothing better to do.

Crack!fic

Apr. 20th, 2006 05:20 pm
Apparently, end of the semester=crack!fic time. *looks up* thank you ghod...or, yunno, whatever's up there.

Fragments Of Lines Written On The Bathroom Walls In Ten Different Fandoms by [livejournal.com profile] fox1013 should come with a warning label because it's so damn funny you may soil yourself. Or spit food. Or something potentially damaging to furniture and/or equipment.
My favorite is from
"05. Watcher's Council Headquarters, Rome, third floor"

Faith is a slut!!!
Faith, stop writing that.

but they're all so LMAO you might just hurt yourself.

also,

[livejournal.com profile] thrace_ is writing a Star Wars uber Alias (what?) Sydney/Rachel, Mature that hits all my kinks: action, romance, and hot chicks with light sabers kicking ass. Episode I and Episode II so far. Warning: WIP.

and crack!tastic for entirely different reasons, [livejournal.com profile] trancer21's Business or Pleasure is SVU/CSI Alex Cabot/Sara Sidle, NC-17. [livejournal.com profile] trancer21 does wonderful things with language, plot, incredibly evocative rapid-fire scenes and imagery to tell a fantastically hot and complex story in 1808 words. Plus, Sara/Alex!! Apparently Witness Protection takes Ms. Cabot all over the country, putting her in contact with so many hotties. But seriously, this is a fantastic read. And FINALLY kickass takemattersintoherownhands Alex returns!

Ficathon!!

Apr. 13th, 2006 04:16 pm
[livejournal.com profile] femslash_minis is having a Kennedyfest this round, so please head over and sign up. Pretty please.

It's amazing how finding out that Iyari Lymon is a big ol' dyke has completely transformed Kennedy in my mind.

psst - there's a link to the complete text of Iyari's coming out interview here. In which she discusses the casting of Carmen on the L Word (she was up for the role) and much more.

Please sign up and bring more sunshine to my slash-loving life.
