But first, a nonfemslash07
rec:She Likes a Prizefight
by Telanu (somniesperus
) is Devil Wears Prada
, Andrea/Miranda, Mature. 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 femslash07
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
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
is Firefly, River/Inara, Mature. Actually, this was my assignment and I'm SO glad I had to bail because 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
is Buffy/Faith, PG-13. Buffy and Faith meet up in Cleveland. There's coffee, demons, and that scar....The Same Old Story
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
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.
recced this fic to me and she was exactly right: Blood and Thunder, a Cha-Cha Challenge
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
