Some awesome person bought me a month of dreamwidth! THANK YOU awesome person. You made a horrible day bearable.

Just a couple of recs:

I don't usually rec WIPs, but [profile] whistlesilver's elegant, lovely Witnessed here in Time and Blood: A Lily to the Heat is too good to leave waiting. Fleur/Hermione, HarryPotter, AU, Mature (rec'ed by [profile] angharad_governal) it takes its time with these two as they wait in the eye of the storm before the next round of the war. There's some definite hurt/comfort here as well.

[personal profile] trancer21's Ladyhawke is a Legend of the Seeker, Cara/Kahlan AU set in the Ladyhawke universe while maintaining a lot of world-building from LOTS. Great story and characterization as usual!

Also, kleptosrbetterlovers over on Tumblr has done some great rec posts (including lots of Warehouse 13 fic I haven't read yet) so check hir out. I would link directly to them, but Tumblr is...impossible.
I stopped posting for many reasons (among them, illness and a severe case of Impostor syndrome which I know is crazy since we're all sort of impostors online), but I kept reading femslash by the fuckton. I've decided that not rec'ing is sort of selfish. The reason I started rec'ing fic in the first place was as a sort of huge thank you to the writers. Obviously I can't even begin to make a dent in the enormous pile of fic I have to rec, so I'll stick with those that made me return to them again and again. Also disclaimer/warning: I tend to prefer longer fics, so this list is biased that way:

Legend of the Seeker:
All the Days by [profile] tcbg77 is Cara/Kahlan, Mature, AU (with mentions of a very different past Cara/Dahlia). Kahlan and Richard's daughter is kidnapped and Cara agrees to accompany Kahlan to get her back. Epic with complex characterization and plotting. Just a great fic.

Pieces Form a Whole Another epic, Cara/Kahlan AU (Mature), this one by [profile] simplesetgo. Kahlan has lost her Confessor powers and she and Cara must stop Darken Rahl...again.

A Light That Never Went Out is a very sweet Cara/Dahlia fic (AU) by [personal profile] fembuck that has lots of feelings and Cara muddling and cursing and sexing her way through them.

Warehouse 13:
Left Unsaid by [profile] anamatics is Myka/HG, AU, PG. H.G. didn't die and continues her life as Emily Lake (although still H.G. w/her memories intact). Complex and nuanced look at loss and love.

Two awesome fixits: Time After Time by [profile] muppetmanda (NC-17 with genderswap, bodyswap elements) and An American Warehouse Agent In Paris (and London) by trancer, which is Mature. Both use the time travel cliche in very different ways to reunite our heroes.

We Were Lovers (Now We're Not Even Friends) by [personal profile] scurvyknavery is NC-17 and awesome.

The Future An Experiment by [profile] thrace_ is R and lovely and complex (there's that word again).

[personal profile] fewthistle's epic AU. Although this is a link to the last in the series, Roads that Never Found You, there are links to the prequels in the introduction. This is a beautiful, haunting Alternate Universe with plots that read like non-goofy W13 eps (although Pete still supplies much-needed comic relief).

and one Merlin fic:
The Ivy Crown by briar_pipe is an EPIC Gwen/Morgana fic (AU) that is really about Morgana coming into her powers as Uther's heir when Arthur doesn't return. I'd like to have seen more of Gwen in this, but it really is an astonishing fic.

I forgot how long that takes. Whew. More later...

LOTS, glee

leavethesky: (pepa is sad)
In the Darkness by [personal profile] dreiser is LotS, Cara/Dahlia, NC-17 with warnings for violence and mentions of noncon. This is truly a tremendous, heartbreaking fic. So complex and it holds no punches as it digs into the life of the Mord'Sith. Capturing the hell of a life of unending pain and crippling emotional manipulation. The scars both emotional and physical it leaves on the women who were kidnapped as children is difficult enough without totally alienating the reader, but dreiser manages to do it while leaving pieces of their inner life and ultimately their humanity intact. Pieces they guard fiercely even when they don't really understand their own -- here's that word again -- 'feelings'. This is so good. Don't miss it. It will break your heart in the best way. [personal profile] ein_myria also rec'ed this on her dreamwidth account so you know it's THAT good. *g*

Say Good-Bye to this Heart of Mine by [profile] random_flores is a Glee AU with zombies! Rachel/Santana, Mature and soooooo good. Like [personal profile] dreiser's fic, this is complex and layered with no easy solutions. Rachel and Santana through a series of accidents end up together at the end of the world and fight to survive with only each other to lean on. Everything and everyone they know is apparently gone and it's them 'against the fucking world'. I don't want to spoil it, so read and enjoy!
Did someone send out a memo demanding that femslashers up the production of smoking!HOT fic? Thank you whoever you are!

First, it's Legend of the Seeker, which I don't even watch because [ profile] pirateygoodness and [ profile] thrace_ picspam much better episodes than anything I could ever get on TV. Also, I don't have to sit through Richard and whatever the wizard's name taking up my valuable Cara/Kahlan time.

Not Unlike a Woman and its sequel Feelings are not the same as feeling by [ profile] scurvyknavery (who is also apparently [ profile] pirateygoodness? according to [ profile] jengrrrl who knows everything and therefore This. Must. Be.) are both Cara/Kahlan, both NC-17 and both just brilliant. I love me some badass characters who are working with the good guys, but only reluctantly and certainly only temporarily. Cara's struggle with her attraction to Kahlan is such a brilliant take on this relationship (if anyone should be having issues, it should be the Mother Confessor and she probably does, but Cara's are so much more fun). She can deal with the physical, it's the rest that's got her completely flummoxed. Super-lethal MordS'ith confused about what that weird, nauseating flutter is in her chest=somehow?supercute. And somehow, simultaneously superHot. Magic, I'm telling you.

Then it's In Which Veronica Gets the Memo by [ profile] random_flores, which is Veronica/Linda, MATURE, and it's FPREG, people. So very, very many of my kinks. Fantastic fic in perfect voice. This should be an episode. Except that they'd cut the hotsex and that would not be right. Because the memo this week was definitely for hothotfemslash. [ profile] random_flores got it, thankfully!

The next two fics involve BDSM, toys, and every all kinds of hot:
Rocky Road by [ profile] trancer21 is Glee, Dianna/Lea, MATURE, BDSM. Dianna's always been the vanilla one in their relationship. Well, that's about to change in all kinds of super-kinky ways. Nobody does toys and the supersexysmokinghot like [ profile] trancer21.

The next fic is, well, I can only blame [ profile] wizened_cynic and her fucking SPN recs (I HATE this show!!). Damn you, [ profile] wizened_cynic! En Travesti by [ profile] lazy_daze is Daneel/Genevieve (I don't know who these people are and I couldn't care less), MATURE and there will be toys. While the boys are doing their own homoerotic male bonding over football at the sports bar, the women are role-playing and having unbelievably hot sex.
Until It Disappeared by [ profile] thrace_ is Emily/JJ, Criminal Minds, PG-13. What I love about this fic (besides the fact that I got to read it before all y'all) is that it is so JJ-centric. We really get a chance to get inside JJ's thoughts and see her life. There's also the fact that it's an AU (Emily's left for L.A.) so we get to see a more fully fleshed, more confident Emily. Also, some hurt/comfort, which is always good.
Also in the awesome Emily/JJ AU is On a Burning Beach by [ profile] calleigh_j. Loads of delicious Emily backstory (she's CIA in this AU) and a great story. Awesomeness.

The Hardest Part About Saying Hello is Goobye by [ profile] kben is Glee, Rachel/Quinn in a Time Traveler's Wife AU, PG-13. Yes, it's a bit disorienting at first (it should be!), but this is a truly wonderful story. Love the way Quinn and Rachel meet and remeet and unmeet... and fall in love somewhere in all of that non-linear time traveling confusion. Love. This.
Also, if this you need some sex in your glee, there's [ profile] trancer21's volcanicallyhot Perfect Pitch, Rachel/Quinn, pwp:
“You are NOT practicing scales while going down on me!”

Also file under OMGsofuckinghot! is Not Unlike A Woman by [ profile] scurvyknavery, Cara/Kahlan, MATURE, Legend of the Seeker. Cara finds It in a marketplace and she and Kahlan renegotiate the terms of their 'relationship' while the boys are away.

the (totally appropriate!) Gay for Kahlan! icon courtesy of [ profile] deej.

She's the Wave by [ profile] austen is leighton/blakelively, rpf, PIRATES!! I don't know why this pair of actresses inspires such pirateygoodness (yes, she's the author of another amazing pirate fic, the mother of them all -- see what I did there internets?), but thank dog it does!

I really have become the worst kind of LJ lurker. Sorry about that all you incredible femslashers. I do, however, keep a list of those fics I've actually read and mean torec over on delicious. Please to check it out. It includes some yuletide fic (Rachel Maddow fic! people!, babysitters' club!, etc.!), some not so recent fic, and other stuff.

One of the greatest things about Yuletide (yanno, besides the greatness of the heroic mods) is that we/I get to read some more obscure pairings (in other words, non DWP or GL). Yuletide=love.
