leavethesky: (Rizzoli Isles in bed)
Rizzoli and Isles fic:
Pretty much anything by [profile] snuffnyc is worth your time and she tends to write very long fics, which is a bonus. Her LJ is friends only though, so you'll have to ask nicely to access her wonderful fics. A Whole Person is Maura/Jane, Mature with some serious hurt/comfort thrown in (can you tell I feel awful and am relying on f/f to get me through?:). I really love snuff's characterization and pacing and the fact that she's a cop IRL gives her fic an added depth and 'realness' that the show can't really capture. I wish snuff wrote this show. Then we'd get the gritty policework AND the romance instead of lameass plots and the man-of-the-week.

ETA [profile] laurel_hardy makes all our lives easier with snuff's fanfiction.net account. Thanks!!

When Maura Isles Made it Rain is Mature with the added bonus of 'undercover as a stripper' and it's by one of my favorite authors, [profile] harper_m. Difficult and complex, Maura and Jane stumble and trip and eventually fall into romance. Nothing is simple with these two and harper really makes the most of these complex, very adult women. It's such a fucking relief sometimes to read about real women with real jobs and real consequences for what is essentially a life-altering decision.

Criminal Minds, AU, Crackverse, WTF
And finally, some levity, [personal profile] wizened_cynic is one of my favorite writers, but she tends to write fic that is unbelievably difficult to categorize, including her crackverse Alex(SVU)/LorelaiGilmore Stars Hollow/witness protection with its multiple pocket universes that include fpreg. Always Take the Crazy with You
is like that only it's RPF Criminal Minds AU, AJ/Paget Brewster set in some crazy workplace and...I don't know. It's awesome and insane and go read it! Crap. I think her LJ is friends only too. Go make friends!
Until It Disappeared by [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com profile] deej.

She's the Wave by [livejournal.com 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.
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.

Sorry for all the drive-by postings lately (in other words, my lack of replies to comments), I've been very sick. Not sick enough to stop the femslash:

Death and Syntaxes by [livejournal.com profile] liz_estrada is Women's Murder Club, Lindsay/Cindy, Mature. This is one in a series of loosely interlinked stories that easily stand on their own. I've raved before about Ms. Estrada's writing and this story doesn't disappoint. Fascinating story peppered with wonderful dialogue and inspired details. And did I mention the hot hot sex? Gah!! No one can ever say that I have my priorities mixed up.

yanno, I've meant to rec Murder in Suburbia fic for some time. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ralst's pimping there's lots of it on [livejournal.com profile] passion_perfect and it's all worth a read. Of course the tone of the show lends itself to fluffier fare and that may be the reason I haven't taken the time to write up well-deserved recs. Until [livejournal.com profile] harper_m gave me some smutty inspiration.
Reason and Promise are both Murder in Suburbia, Scribbs/Ash, Mature. Both involve delicious use of schoolgirl uniforms, and both are indescribably erotic and just flat out hot as hell. The perfect characterization, humor, and dialogue just add to the hot.

and I just realized that the other fic I wanted to rec is trapped behind a flock. [livejournal.com profile] fewthistle set your murderous smutfic free!

eta okay it's not flocked. In fact, it's on [livejournal.com profile] passion_perfect! Similar Features by [livejournal.com profile] fewthistle is Criminal Minds/Law & Order Xover, Emily Prentiss/Serena Southerlyn. When you can't be with the one you want, a hot blonde in a club will most certainly do. This fic even inspired an answering fic form [livejournal.com profile] darandkerry, A Revelation of a Different Kind from JJ's POV. Sadly, it doesn't involve Lindsay Boxer visiting Quantico regarding the kiss-me-not killer and loads of sex w/JJ. What?! One-track mind people!
It appears that, as usual, I was wrong. [livejournal.com profile] ralst pwns Criminal Minds. then again, I'm pretty sure that [livejournal.com profile] ralst owns most of teh fandoms. [Unknown site tag] does have the highest fic rate. So, thanks to that post and the comments, I have a few more recs:

Predilection by [livejournal.com profile] harper_m is Criminal Minds, Emily/JJ, OFC/JJ R. Very hot character study of JJ and her type.

Five Times Jill Barnhart Had Sex With Lindsay Boxer, And One Time She Didn’t by [livejournal.com profile] trancer21 is WMC, Lindsay/Jill, NC-17. Okay, this is a spectacular fic. Not only is it scorching hot (including meeting the criteria for this post of favorite kinks), but it's also a gorgeously rich character study, or relationship study. Or lack-of-relationship study. [livejournal.com profile] trancer21's mastered the show-don't-tell with truly amazing results. This isn't fluffy and there's no happy ending. In fact, the story runs backward, so...no happy beginnings either. But hot ones. absolutely! And a gorgeously written and heartwrenching study of Jill's motivations and Lindsay's manipulations. Because really? Who could resist the Boxer?

[livejournal.com profile] tremblingmoon told me to check out [livejournal.com profile] fewthistle's Throw Your Arms Up to the Sky (Criminal Minds, Emily/JJ, PG-13) and described it as breathtaking, which it is. I'm not a big fan of Xmas fics (because I'm a grinch), but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Maybe it's the sad note that runs throughout despite the fact that there's a happy ending for the couple. There's still that subtext of making new family because your 'real' family doesn't get you and never will. Which is sad. But also liberating. And [livejournal.com profile] fewthistle makes it just that. And breathtaking.
Apparently, the femslash community has spoken and chicks with guns (who solve crime) are teh HOT. Or possibly it's just the Angie Harmon Effect. Whatever it is, these two fandoms -- Criminal Minds and Women's Murder Club -- have just exploded. And it's a beautiful, sexyhot kind of explosion. So, a few recs while I procrastinate for a moment (only one paper to go!):

Women's Murder Club:
Charge of the Light Brigade (PG-13) and its sequel, Hang Fire (R), both by [livejournal.com profile] liz_estrada are Lindsay/Cindy. First of all, it's [livejournal.com profile] liz_estrada, so you know you're in for a treat. These can be read together or separately and as usual, they're nuanced, carefully constructed stories that give these characters a depth 15 seasons of the show couldn't match. [livejournal.com profile] liz_estrada has a gift for writing those difficult, awkward moments on the way to a relationship.

Cuffed by [livejournal.com profile] random_flores is again Lindsay/Cindy, PG-13. Short, funny, and sweet. And still hot. Hard to manage, but flores nails it.

The Good Pinot Noir Digression of 2007 by [livejournal.com profile] liz_estrada is Lindsay/Jill, R. Can you tell I have a thing for liz? Or her writing? This could be the backstory for Ms. Estrada's other stories. Lindsay and Jill are best friends with benefits. It's hot with a bittersweet hint of sadness...or is that the pinot noir? No, then it would be berries.

Rules of Estrangement by [livejournal.com profile] theholyinnocent is Lindsay/Jill with hints of Lindsay/Cindy, PG-13. As usual, [livejournal.com profile] theholyinnocent manages to be devastatingly funny while drawing profound character and relationship portraits with her efficient prose. This one is really a study of Lindsay Boxer as seen through the eyes of two women who love her. It's really a tragedy in a gorgeous package. Kind of like Detective Boxer. or 'The Boxer' (LMAO!!)

Oh yeah! and this video by [livejournal.com profile] aleatory_6 (I think?) is Lindsay/Jill and it is brilliant!! and LMFAO right frickin' on!!

Criminal Minds
I think [livejournal.com profile] fewthistle kind of pwns this fandom at the moment. She's written so much Emily/JJ that I haven't caught up. I have managed to read a couple:
All for Believing by [livejournal.com profile] fewthistle is Emily/JJ, PG-13. [livejournal.com profile] fewthistle is clearly a hopeless (or should I say hopeful?) romantic. Well, that's assuming a lot, but her fic is breathlessly, hopefully romantic and this is no exception. Another deep look into two characters we only get glimpses of on screen as they make their way inexorably toward each other. Beautiful and breathless.

Answer is also Emily/JJ, PG and just as breathlessly romantic. The tone is slightly different as the two women are drawn together by the tragic events of a recent episode (I won't spoil, but this story will!).

Pieces of Me by [livejournal.com profile] lysachan is Emily/JJ, PG-13. Similar in tone to [livejournal.com profile] fewthistle (actually, it's probably the tone of the show that these writers are flawlessly reproducing), this story begins with our agents stuck in a case gone terribly, terribly wrong. In the aftermath they grow closer. And closer.

There's a lot more fic where these came from at [livejournal.com profile] passion_perfect. Wow, these were all R or less. I'm wondering where the hotsweatysexy fic for these fandoms is. Although I see [livejournal.com profile] trancer21 has a women's murder club fic in [livejournal.com profile] passion_perfect so maybe that will fulfill my, um, needs.

I don't have any WMC icons because I still can't really admit to myself that I think Angie Harmon (she's a Republican!) is sexy. damn.

edited to add the video.
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.


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


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
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.

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.


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.

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.
