Rec: West Eros High by openmouthwideeye

Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire
Pairings: Brienne/Jaime, Renly/Loras, past Cersei/Jaime
Rating: Teen
Length: 66,910 words words (WIP)
Categories: Alternate Universe - High School, Friendship, Drama, Teen Romance

Summary: It started with a whisper . . . And it goes like this: Brienne wants to play hockey, Cersei wants to plot, and everyone's mother keeps getting involved. Jaime just wants to flirt with Brienne when things get boring.

Notes: I love this series is telling a story about a modern teenage girl coming of age in realistic way. Brienne deals with the complexity of friendships, her father, dealing with her relationship with Jaime, and bullying.

I like that the supporting cast are complex characters with their own motivations, and at times, they do hurt Brienne’s feeling in painful ways. I love that Brienne is learning how to live her life.

Rec: Before Destruction by memorde

Fandom: A Song of Ice and Fire
Pairing: Brienne of Tarth/Jaime Lannister
Rating: Teen
Length: 54,295 words (WIP)
Categories: Alternate Universe - Fusion, Regency Romance, Slow Build

Summary: "Pride goeth before destruction". She had grown up with those words tempering her every action, but it would be many years before they began to make sense.

Notes: Pride and Prejudice is great source for adaptation and I love the writer attention to historical and language detail to make this crossover work extremely well.

I love Brienne is playing the part of Elizabeth Bennet, she is still like herself making it more believable that Hyle Hunt can trick Brienne with false sincerity and that she still doesn't know her true feelings for Jaime. Jaime as Mr. Darcy was done brilliantly and that he didn't deny his 'sins' that maybe a problem for Brienne the further we get into the story.

I love how much Arya, Sansa, and the other ladies in canon are feature in this story.

'And we have all the love in the world to set alight.' A Ponds vid.
My favorite Ponds vid and I was so happy to discover it. I never heard the song used before and it fits Amy and Rory relationship perfectly. My favorite part of Doctor Who is watching Amy and Rory loving each other imperfectly in an epic way. I love that River and Doctor are both present in this vid and it made my heart hurt.

Summary: Shortly before her death, Padmé Amidala gives birth to two daughters. The eldest, Lucy, grows up in quiet obscurity on Tatooine -- until the Empire comes to call.

Notes: I always wanted an Always-a-girl!Luke AU since I entered fandom and I'm glad this baby exist. I devour this quickly and it was lot of fun seeing the author making creative deviations from the film version because of the changes in Luke gender.

Guys the Lucy and Leia kiss is still sweet and hilarious as the film version and I will always ship Luke and Leia until the day I die.

It begins with the end. Magic isn't working anymore. Both in Otter's Ridge, where the Aurors are tasked with finding out why magic has simple disappeared in places and from people, and in the relationships that surround Harry. He isn't sure where to look to find Magic again, and when he does seek it out, finds it in unexpected places, and with unexpected consequences. It will take all of those around him to sort through and bring the magic back to life. // This is every thing I need a trio fic, it is more focus on Harry and Hermione but it didn't bug me as much since the other two sides of the relationship are explore too but in a smaller way. The Neville and Luna relationship was wonderful to see and I enjoy seeing it in this fic.

Blaine is thirteen the first time he realizes that not everyone looks at their older brother the way he does. // This is my kind of incest story, there is nothing nice or pretty about this and I don’t know the source material but Blaine I feel for him here.

Inconsolation Prize by [archiveofourown.org profile] Verbyna (Blaine/Cooper, Blaine/Kurt, Mature, 1,348 words)
Blaine wasn’t an asset to Cooper, so when he left, Cooper edited Blaine from his life. The big brother role never fit him. Kissing Blaine, that was different. It was the only real connection they ever had: sex and music, hard kisses and watching movies silently, making a space for themselves where they couldn’t compete. // I prob. need more Blaine/Cooper if I’m going to jump into this fandom. I can’t believe power imbalance is my new kink.

AU. It’s not that he didn’t know that his wife was gay. It’s that it just didn’t really matter, until they got an invite to their high school reunion and the only girl she’d ever really loved was coming back to town. // This fic is my new favorite; it gives me all kinds of feelings and if anyone has read it, please feel free to discuss it with me because it gives me all these thoughts. I can’t even begin to describe the story all I know that I should logically not agree with the situation but my heart tell me I want Finn and Quinn to stay together.

Matt's learned to be more aware in the last year or so, to watch out for the things that go bump in the night.

Post-Mockingjay. I’m just not sure; not sure of anything but maybe death, pain, survival. I don’t wave back but I do watch him motionlessly until he’s just a speck of regret in the distance.

Wonderful what-if story, the portrayal of Katniss's mental heath got to me, the first person narrative works here.

Inception:
How to Know (or here, here) by [personal profile] citrinesunset
Arthur/Cobb, Mature/R, 22,000 words
Arthur builds a relationship with Cobb, which begins as casual sex between friends and gradually becomes more. But as it does so, Arthur's lack of confidence in Cobb weighs on him.

Arthur's jaw and tongue are starting to ache, but he doesn't stop. He strains his eyes upward, trying to look at Cobb's face without removing the cock from his mouth. Cobb's eyes are closed and his lips are parted. The usual lines are gone from his forehead and around his eyes, making him look five years younger. It might just be the light.

Arthur and Cobb having a relationship that is real, complicated and their parts in this fic that hurt my heart and Arthur is just as flaw as Cobb. The kids are real kids, horrible and great at the same time and love that this story was long, I miss reading this pairing.

Sherlock (BBC):

Sally and Lestrade first meeting, it’s wonderful and the insight into their characters is great.

Triage (or here, here, here) by [personal profile] morganstuart

The bright light receded until it was just the sun in the corner of his vision. He had to squint to make out Elena's face. She was leaning against a tree, sipping from a delicate china cup, and he was sitting beside her. The bright springtime sky matched the color of her eyes perfectly. It was the kind of day that seemed to be made just for her.

I love this, full of the right amount of horror and its feature my favorite character, Matt.


Favorite film I watch this year Apocalypse Now Redux and The Godfather. I just recently seen both of these film and I enjoy the hell of them. (Both are long ass movies and watch them all the way through, so good these two and I'm obviously intrigue by them. Totally not the type of films I actually watch regularly.) Ironically, both have Robert Duvall (I'm kind of in love with him right now) in them. I’m now able to talk about them now but not in this journal, it will bore the public. My sister already gave me a strange look for watching these movies so I won't gush but if you haven’t seen these two go do it, they are great entertainment in my opinion.

My favorite deancasbb right now, there so many details that I love about it, lots more ppl should read this.

Redemption | [livejournal.com profile] freckledwings [Dean/Castiel, R, 30,816 words]
An action-packed AU. Dean is an agent for a secret organization devoted to take out corrupt leaders. Castiel Novak is an agent for an organization devoted to protecting them. When Castiel is shot during one of their many collisions, Dean reacts out of instinct and saves him, immediately marking himself as a traitor. And so begins the biggest journey yet for Dean, Castiel, and Sam, where Castiel teaches Dean about the power of redemption, forgiveness, and second chances, all while trying to stay alive.

I love the world the author presents in the fic and love the beginning, with Dean and Cas pointing guns at each other.

Cold air has final blow through my corner of the world. I have an ulcer in my mouth; I suck at dental care apparently. I think I’m getting better at typing on my laptop I feel accomplished. The new kindle looks good; Amazon new website annoys me though.

Finally read Watchmen (check out form the library), I actually enjoyed even though there is parts that I despise. The forward and backwards in time narrative of the Dr. Manhattan with hurts my head. I think I favor and enjoy the film more for the story and the stunning visual. I like the graphic novel for making me think more on some subject matter I'm interested.

Here are more of my October recs. Hover over the link to get any warning(s).

.: Avengers :.
Tomorrow Belongs To Me | [livejournal.com profile] valtyr [Steve/Tony, Jane/Thor, Explicit, 87,241 words]
Steve wakes up in the 21st Century. He doesn't think much of it, and it's dubious about him. He meets a Norse God, joins a superhero team, and feels terribly awkward about the whole monument at Arlington he's rendered obsolete by not being dead. Meanwhile, Tony is trying to make his mark on history by being the man who finally drove Nick Fury over the edge.

What a fun ride many great things to enjoy about this story but I love it because it about Steve, I just want to hug him and keep him forever.

Magnetic (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] boombangbing [Pepper/Tony, Pepper/Steve, Pepper/Steve/Tony, Clint/Natasha, PG-13, 28,537 words]
Tony and Pepper are in a committed relationship, everyone knows that. Tony still flirts relentlessly with Steve, though, and Steve doesn't know what to make of it. Then he starts having weird feelings about Pepper too, and he really, really doesn't know what to make of that.

Pepper POV is full of brilliance, my favorite fic featuring her.

Honey, I Can See The Stars (or here, or here) | [personal profile] twentysomething [Steve/Tony, NR, 11,701 words]
"The most he'd ever cared about anything remotely related was his uniform, which, beyond the stylistic, was pretty necessary. But now his suit comes from a lab far more advanced than the basement of a Brooklyn antique shop, and the only decision he really gets to make is if his pants are too tight. (They were, but he doesn't really think they changed them. He doesn't know why, but he thinks that might have been on purpose.) That being said, he doesn't know what he's done to deserve the double take Tony gives him as he walks in the room."

Sweet, Tony having a crush on Steve and wooing him, great fic to read if you want some fluff.

.: Dresden Files :.
Crosswind | [personal profile] medie [Dresden/Marcone, PG-13, 50,813 words]
Boy meets girl, girl falls in love with boy, girl is secretly a wizard, girl kills mentor and faces White Council, has boy's baby. Not exactly the stuff of fairytales, but with Harriet Blackstone Copperfield Dresden so few things ever are. Even with the fairy godmother and company in tow.

Harry born as a woman and the author wrote her brilliantly too. Go read it if you always wanted genderswap AU of the Dresden Files.

.: Final Fantasy VII :.
Against Regulations (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] chibirisuchan [Zack/Sephiroth, R (Explicit), 11,625 words]
There had been quite an argument about it later, behind closed doors -- nearly as impressive as the one over his uniform, in fact. The compromise reached was that Sephiroth would politely hold whatever they handed him until he was off the stage, and then he would give it to Zack for safekeeping afterwards -- because it was bad publicity for Shinra's most honored general to treat his ribbons as though they were frivolous and demeaning trash, or for someone else to fish them out of the wastebaskets in which he'd deposited their wreckage.

I love that this fic explore Sephiroth and Zack, their friendship and the complications. This fic is great and I wish more people will write more about their friendship and how does it work.

.: Sherlock (BBC) :.
A Ship In Harbor (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] impishtubist [Gen (Ensemble), PG, 5,200 words]
Five times Lestrade was there for someone, and one time someone was there for him.

I love everything Imp writes, seriously canon all the way for me.

.: Star Wars :.
Need to Know (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] hikarific [Luke/Han/Leia, PG, 1,312 words]
There are some things Luke and Han will always wonder about, but when it comes down to it, do they really need to know?

Great ficlet featuring my beloved OT3 that no one in fandom writes but I glad this exist.

.: Supernatural :.
Close to Broken (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] shadowrose81 [Dean/Castiel, Castiel/Meg, NC-17, 34,000 words]
It is 1932. Castiel, the adopted son, serves as the Sant’Angelo crime family’s hitman, a ruthless soldier who kills indiscriminately without questions. It is only when Castiel is contracted to kill Dean Winchester, his childhood obsession, that his world is torn asunder. Suddenly, in the face of the man he once loved, Castiel begins to doubt himself and nothing can prepare him for how quickly everything seems to fall apart.

I love the whole cinematic quality to this fic, totally feels like you watching a gangster film in my opinion.

The Sharp Edge of Earth (or here, or here) | [personal profile] dotfic [Gen with Dean/Castiel UST, R, 29,000 words]
Having sold his soul to save Sam's life, Dean finds himself in Hell at the mercy of the demon Alastair, who is intent on breaking him. But all that Dean was and is, everyone who's had an impact on him, are still a part of Dean, and he won't break easily. As Dean takes refuge in his own mind to escape the torture, angels gather, ordered to undertake an unusual mission: rescue The Righteous Man from Hell. Castiel knows an invasion of Hell will be difficult, but he has no idea how much this mission will demand of him, how wrong the best-laid plans can go – and how much everything is about to change irrevocably. Meanwhile, Dean's defenses and his hope start to fail. He thinks no one is ever coming to save him.

He's wrong.

.: The Vampire Diaries :.
The Past is Prologue (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] lit_chick08 [Miranda/Grayson, John/Isobel, John/Jenna, Grayson/Liz, Carol/Richard, Jenna/Logan, Jenna/Mason, Miranda/Richard, Isobel/Damon, Isobel/Alaric, NC-17, 70,548 words]
Everyone seems to forget they were young once too. Find out how Grayson found out about vampires, how Miranda ended up Mrs. Gilbert, how Richard became Mayor of Mystic Falls, what really happened between John and Isobel, how Liz became Sheriff, why Jenna only has "dirty shame," and how Isobel Flemming became a vampire.

Lit_chick08 I want to live in her brain, all the details she set up in her back-story to match canon were all wonderful and emotional. Several parts of the story made me tear up leaving an emotional ache. Everyone gets a moment to shine in this story but I love Jenna and Liz parts the most. Go read it and leave feedback for this author

A fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi (A precipice in front, wolves behind) (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] swirlsofblue [Stefan/Klaus, NC-17, 19,755 words]
This is an AU story show-casing Stefan and Klaus’s relationship through the last ninety-four years; exploring its dysfunction, and the obstacles and issues they face. It begins in 1917, with them alternately challenging and accepting each other; while on a wildly careening path of violence and destruction. As the tumultuousness of their personalities ebb and flow, their relationship does with it, and there are transformations and acceptance encompassing many shades of grey. Running parallel to this is Katherine’s present day story, wherein she is held captive and tortured by Klaus.

Haven: Cold Light by [archiveofourown.org profile] novembersmith [Audrey/Nathan/Duke, Explicit, 32,936 words]
"Parker," Nathan says in greeting as she comes up beside him, shoving her hair behind her ears and squinting down at the rocks by the pier. They've got the floodlights on, silhouetting the scene in long, deep shadows.

"What have we got?" she asks, no-nonsense and on point, as always.

"You're going to love this," he assures her, and she cocks an eyebrow at him, clearly intrigued. "Go on. What weird mythological creature *haven't* we covered yet?"
Everything I could ever want in a Haven story is in this fic, having Nathan, Audrey, and Duke ending up together is just the best topping on already great cake.

Naruto: I got nostalgic to read Naruto fics for some reason and found some good ones.
A Thoughtful, Moving Exploration of Passionate Youth (or here) by [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden [Gai/Iruka, NC-17, 15,424 words]

A chance encounter with Lieutenant Jim Kirk - who's changed since they first met five years before, and not for the better - forces Leonard to face reality about his own situation while trying to keep Jim from heading down the same path. So good, I read this one really quick, and was sad that there wasn't anymore to read, lovely AU.

Sucker Punch: forgive me darling, for every word i say (my heart is just too full of you) by [livejournal.com profile] immortality [Blondie/Amber, Sweet Pea/Babydoll, Rocket/Babydoll, R, 33,680 words]
AU. At prestigious Lennox Academy, every girl has her role, something which is especially true for a group of four loosely connected girls: there's Sweet Pea and Rocket, step-sisters and co-captains of the intramural soccer team who couldn't be any less alike; Blondie, the notorious bad girl with a reputation that precedes her; and Amber, the popular junior class president. However, the girls' neatly defined lives are thrown into chaos by the arrival of the new transfer student Babydoll and some startling revelations about themselves and each other. This was lovely, full of emotions and was so dreamy and hopeful, made me happy to read it even when drama was happening. Love that it was also set in period.

The Eagle: Fighter (or here, or here) by [livejournal.com profile] planjane [Esca/Marcus, Explicit, 65,291 words]
Marcus Aquila is an undercover Metropolitan police officer. His assignment is to infiltrate a slave-trafficking organisation which trades in men, bought and sold to fight in cages, sometimes to the death. When he makes the impulsive decision to intervene during a 'kill fight' involving a fierce young fighter called Esca, Marcus inadvertently finds himself the owner of his very own slave. Now Marcus has to find a way to complete his assignment, as well as gaining Esca's trust, without blowing his cover. The question is, can he do it before the secrets and lies catch up with him, and Marcus loses everything?

Cuban Beach AU. Charles discovers that death does, in fact, solve everything.

First Impressions by [archiveofourown.org profile] sirona [Erik/Charles, Hank/Raven, Teen, 26,712 words]
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a spouse -- or the nearest set of curtains to hide behind, if you were to believe Mr Charles Xavier. Little does he know that he himself will soon put test to that very truth.

What Not To Expect When You're Not Expecting It by [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden [Erik/Charles, Explicit, 9,659 words]
“I wasn’t hiding it from you. Honestly, I didn’t know for certain until yesterday, which I think we can agree was bad timing and not the sort of thing one springs before the heat of battle,” Charles says earnestly. This is the best kind of crack go read it.

Although I did have issues with the editing and especially didn't like the abrupt ending. I enjoy the song a lot though so that makes it up to me.

Work is keeping me busy and too exhausted to read more. Updating is hard man. Hover over the link to get any warning(s). Mark with ♥ are my favourites.

Doctor Who: Invincible by [livejournal.com profile] humansrsuperior - Eleven/River, SFW. "Invincible" by Ok Go. River Song kicks butt (and Eleven/River is hot). Every new vid made about them made me love them more and I love the vidder editing style so much.

Gossip Girl: bad sex, literature, and russian hats by [livejournal.com profile] artemis_sparks - Dan/Blair, R. Post S4. I want you, she thinks, and it doesn't make any sense because everything so far has been about as not-perfect as it's possible to be and he's Dan and he isn't right for her, none of this is right. I love how Blair & Dan interactions are so awkward and hot. Artemis_sparks knows how to write these two and can always make me fall in love with them all over again. (6,748 words)

Sherlock BBC: A City Without Walls (or here) by [livejournal.com profile] sidneysussex - Lestrade/Sherlock, PG-13. Detective Inspector Lestrade is dying. At the same time, Sherlock is making it worthwhile to live. Tears! Heartbreaking, beautiful read and love the tenderness between Sherlock and Lestrade. This fic put me through the ringer. (10,084 words)

I figured out how to be happy - ASW by [livejournal.com profile] hehangs - I love the caps hehangs use in these set of remixes. All of them look so lovely.

Star Trek XI: Along Comes a Stranger (or here) by [livejournal.com profile] klmeri - Kirk/Spock/McCoy, Teen. AU. Jim's life in Riverside is uncomplicated until two men, both equally mysterious and compelling, arrive in town, bringing with them the promise of change. I can't begin to describe how much I like these fic and sad to see this fic ends. Everyone is so in character, the trio's interaction is great, and Uhura's back-story is like my favorite part. Go read it I don't want to spoil this story. (WIP: ~104,511 words) *Update: Now Completed @ ~111,944 words*

Supernatural: Goodbye by [livejournal.com profile] cugami - Dean/Castiel, PG. I love the embrace.

"Castiel is in Love" by [livejournal.com profile] usarechan - Dean/Castiel, PG. I'm a 'dude' in love I love how Dean's holding the back of Castiel's neck.

Saudades by [livejournal.com profile] cugami - Dean/Castiel, PG. Military AU. Dean is fine where he is, fighting a near endless war at the border. Then he meets one of the devils of the sky, which are ironically called Seraphs - suicidal paratroopers. A great snippet of an AU, I love the world building in this and I didn’t feel like it needed to me flesh out more. (2,535 words)

Stairway From Zion by [livejournal.com profile] daymarket - Dean/Cas, R. Orwellian AU. During the same raid that had Castiel crashing through the windshield of Dean’s getaway car, Dean loses both Sam and Anna to the hands of the angels. Human and angel should hate each other as circumstances dictate, but life has a funny way of changing the preordained path. I'm enjoying the dynamic between Dean & Castiel; the world-building is amazing, and just go read it I don't want to spoil this one. (63,000 words)

No Brakes Or Take-Backs (or here) by [livejournal.com profile] highermagic - Dean/Castiel, Gabriel/Sam, NC-17. AU. Castiel never wanted a demon. Now the thing's on his mind all the damn time. And his scent is everywhere. PORN, hot porn, enough said. (~12,000 words)

Don't Walk On By by Cas ([livejournal.com profile] virtualpersonal) & [livejournal.com profile] brimstonegold - Dean/Castiel, NC-17. AU. Written for dc_everafter. Dean works several jobs in order to pay for medical care for Sam who has been severely injured. The day he meets Castiel, Dean's luck changes, though it is debatable whether it is for the better or for the worse. Castiel is an angel who has been cut-off from heaven to live with Man for a hundred years. Trying to right a wrong, he accidentally hires Dean as his rent-a-boy and learns a thing or two about being human. A Pretty Woman!fusion that I didn't know I wanted and with one of my favorite version of Castiel. His characterization is so on point; this fic made me smile, sad, swoon, and laugh all over the place. Perfect read. (60,000 words)

Bandom: Across The Lines by [livejournal.com profile] slashxyouxup - Frank/Gerard, Mikey/Ray, NC-17. A summer to change everything.

Draculoids Will Never Hurt You (or here) by [personal profile] sassbandit & [personal profile] were_duck - Frank/Gerard, Mikey/Ray/Show Pony, various minor/background/past pairings; NC-17. Gerard hates his job in the art department at BLI. The only good part of his day is hanging with the smokers downstairs, especially Frank, who shares Gerard’s frustration and rebellion against the corporate norms. But when Frank is fired, Gerard quits his job too, and with Mikey’s and Ray’s help, sets off to find Frank, irritate Korse, and turn art into revolution.

This is an origin story, tracing the lives of the Fabulous Killjoys from their ordinary office jobs to their desert showdown against Korse and the draculoids, as shown in the Na na na video. (94,000 words)
