Puck/Kurt and very dirty. YUM. Puck wants to bottom.
very slow and VERY good Puck voice. He is never anyone other than himself, even when he figures out Kurt is the only one he's getting naked with.
When did I start shipping Puck/Kurt so hard? Ten years later, and the past comes back with one phone call. To a hooker.

A car crash, and Puck and Kurt say hello. More gen than shippy. I was crying by the end of this. Lovely and sad and hurty.
-Not a Victim
Puck/Kurt, sort of, but more bromance with some making out. Angst, rape, but ultimately kicking ass and being awesome. Kurt needs some protecting, and then he takes his problem out.

*cries laughing* Five different ways the members of Arashi get knocked up. I can't decide which is my favorite, although this line is HILARIOUS:"I don't care if you thought the look on Jun's face would be funny," Sho roared. "You do not tell the angel of the lord that you'll bear the next Jesus even if you DO think it's only a dream."Glee/Arashi
GLEE+ARASHI=YESYESYES. HnA comes to McKinley, for some reason, and New Directions and Arashi do a song exchance. And Puck thinks Nino is a girl, Rachel follows Ohno around, Aiba makes friends, and Jun and Kurt bond on a deeply fashionable level. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL I COULD CRY.Anniversary

Hana Kimi TW:Occupational Hazard
I LOVE THIS FIC. There is not NEARLY enough fic about Hana Kimi TW, but this is a fabulous fabulous example of WHY there needs to be more.
Senior Nan helps Xiu Yi deal with a crisis. *snerk*“It is two in the morning,” Nan growls, fingers clenched on the doorknob. “If your room is not on fire, then I suggest you go back to bed.”
“My heart is on fire,” Xiu-Yi insists, one hand fisted in his shirt for emphasis.
Nodame Cantabile:Modern Inconvenience
Chiaki is a master at justifying. That's why he's curled up with Nodame under the kotatsu. It was with the same ease he had lectured about the winter months being conducive to the propagation of disease, about the health hazard of even trying to live in that hellhole of a place she called home, about eco-friendly measures and the energy efficiency of simply heating a single apartment instead of two—an uncharacteristically frugal statement.Typical
This is lovely. Told in alternate times in snatches and pieces, we see Chiaki falling."I understand," she said, which was extremely discomforting, because Chiaki knew he did not. He had ceased to really understand anything where Nodame was concerned. He only knew he wanted her close.Into the care of Amphitrite, I surrender my beating heart
Another lovely lyrical fic where Chiaki surrenders. In its imperfection, Chiaki could hear the strength of the pianist's soul: pure, giving, spirited and above all, humanly flawed. Something went off in him: his heart raced, his palms sweated and in the span of that single rhapsodic moment, he wanted to both laugh and weep his heart out.
He now remembers also thinking, so this is how it's like to fall in love.Sinfonia Cantabile
This is amazing. I love the tone of this fic, and how it's told in numbers and days. The repetition is gorgeous. Seriously, this gives me chills at the end.Against the passing days, he had made plans for the symphony's first rehearsal. Against the doctors' advice, he had played a few bars every day, hoping and waiting for the notes to register once more. Against his mother's well-meaning dissuasion and his uncle's stern admonishment, he had gone over the score countless times daily, hearing it grow fainter and fainter in his mind as he read the notes and listened to them in his head.
And then one day he had pulled out the score, looked at the notes, and heard nothing but the silence that never left him. no in-betweens
So so lovely. Nodame fic has a tendency to capture either Nodame's madcap insanity and be absolutely hilarious, but I prefer the lovely, lyrical, musical
fic which ebbs and flows, and you can almost hear the melody. I can hear the ebb and flow here.But Nodame's hands tremble a bit and are a strange animal when he brushes his fingers against hers -she knows what he is going to say- and Chiaki really really wishes she would stop joking about “their relationship”.
Not because it's not a relationship, but because it is not a joke.Immortal Beloved
Longer fic, exploring Nodame and Chiaki's reactions and denials of her, and how everything can all fall apart all too easily.As he spied on her from the corners of his eyes, every movement she made he knew. The way she cut the potatoes with nimble fingers, thanks to years of piano playing. The way her eyes spread back and forth from the pans to the pot and back to the pans, as if reading a score. The way her mouth pouted in a ridiculous sort of way as she concentrated on taking out the chicken fillets out of the pan. Every habit he knew and though he would never admit it, he felt a sense of pride in knowing her that well.
Mei-chan no Shitsuji:
I WILL BRING THE WHOLE WORLD AROUND TO THIS FANDOM, I SWEAR.Two Drabbles: Imaginary Girl, this is a song for you - I'll Follow the Sun
The first is a teasing look at Rika/Aoyama, where he thinks he failed, and she shows him he didn't.
The second is all Kiba/Izumi, and Kiba is such a PUPPY omg. Lost Cause
Rihito losing his cool over Mei is my favorite thing on earth
. And here, he is all butler, and all man, and he's so mixed up and in love and MEI and YES, and I love this so much.The minutes are ticking by, and Rihito has not moved. Neither has the comforter. His inaction is a disgrace, his failure a dark mark upon Mei-sama's honour, and yet Rihito can do no more than stare at the bed he had shared with his lady.The Last Step
*babbles* i love this fic like CANDY. Mei is fed up, Rihito is repressed, and Mei knows exactly what she wants. Mei is feisty, here, and I love how she's written. I love the cracking of Rihito's butler-y calm, and how neatly she walks him into everything.He seemed to know what she was thinking, because his smile grew even wider, and his eyes seemed to darken with something she didn’t know. “That’s a lot,” he said, and looked to say more when Mei decided she simply couldn’t sit through another second of small talk and he’d have to start liking grabby girls whether he liked it or not.Two Steps to a Successful Evening
mdksajdklsajdkals! This is funny and suggestive and yummy and HILARIOUS.It was, Rihito thought, surprisingly satisfying to help Mei tear the bed apart.
Love Shuffle:Ladies Choice
Love Shuffle is a show that starts off completely goofy, and then proceeds to blow your mind in places. This fic fixes something skeevy that happens in the last episode, and it does so without cheating, without tricks, and with the idea of being warm.He had promised Mei, on their last day as husband and wife: it is her turn to choose, now.
I still have 43 fics saved to my Arashi fic recs folder. orz.
FIC IN WHICH ARASHI DOES NOT FEEL QUITE THEMSELVES:Jun as a cat
...Jun as a CAT. It's so beautiful. And it's all Aiba's fault."Hello? Matsumoto-san? I AM VERY SORRY, I TURNED JUN INTO A CAT."A Day In Our Life
..and now Sho is a puppy. It's not his fault!Nino only knew it was Sho and not some hapless stray because he'd watched the puppy struggle with a ballpoint pen and a scrap of paper that morning until it could scratch out the simple message, "I AM SHO SAKURAI DON'T LAUGH I'LL PEE ON YOU."
FIC IN WHICH ARASHI ARE ALL BITCHES BECAUSE THEY LOVE EACH OTHER:Five Ways Jun Spends Hanami with his Retarded Bandmates
- very vaguely Jun/Aiba and Ohmiya
I LOATHE the use of the word "retarded," which comes up often in Arashi stuff, but it is the title, so im using it.When Jun idly remarked that Aiba's hair smelled like his shampoo, Aiba had kissed him, opened-mouthed, against a tree, for a solid five seconds. That was for the bird bento, Aiba exclaimed happily, even as he spent the next five seconds clutching at his shin.
FIC IN WHICH THERE ARE INSANE AND/OR AWESOME AUs:Chasing Rainbows
They are PIRATES. Aiba befriends strange sea beasties. Nino tries to throw Jun overboard. Ohno makes decisions.Nino can hear splashing and shrieking giggles that probably means Aiba has found yet another possibly lethal ocean animal and befriended it.How I Met Your Other (self)
I love this! I do. It's just..Aiba works in a bakery, Nino likes to argue, Sho dials wrong numbers, and Jun is dating Nino's SISTER, and it's all completely AWESOME.But when he gets next door there's a guy in a suit sitting at a table with Aiba and three cups of coffee. "…a fish and my place is a mess," the guy is saying.
FIC IN WHICH ARASHI LOVES ARASHI IN MOSTLY NON PORNY WAYS:You Can't Help But Grow Hot
Ohno loves Arashi. Arashi loves him. *hearts*Six Things Arashi Did Not Quite Say
*hearts* this is lovely and sad and gentle. They really do take care of each other.Metaphors
Aiba tries to figure out a way to make everyone understand Arashi.(woman) Nino + (man) Ohno + (me!) Aiba + (drunk) Sho + (cranky) Jun = Arashi = Family?
FIC IN WHICH THERE IS PORN:Twisting the Rules
Ohno/Jun/Aiba, all set around how very bendy Jun is, and how competitive Jun is at Twister. "Jun-kun is really good at this game, right?" Ohno said with a faint nod to himself and Jun could see a look Ohno's his eyes that he wasn't sure he liked. "So Jun-kun should be able to keep playing even like this."Asking Nicely mitsuhachi
Aiba distracts Jun at a photoshoot. YES PLEASE.Aiba lost it, curled over Jun’s bare shoulder to muffle helpless giggling against his skin. “Does that mean you won’t wear the schoolgirl outfit for me again?”Tattoo
ORGY! Captain has a tattoo. It provides an interesting map."So, those colours on your back are having sex?" he asked.Just a Flimsy Pretext
ORGY! Arashi doesnt bother playing games like spin the bottle or truth or dare. They go straight to the making out."If you touch my hair with that soap on your hands," Jun informed Aiba with a sharp smile as he wrapped his arms around Ohno's chest, "I'm going to shove you in the sink."
FIC IN WHICH THERE IS AWESOME OHMIYA:alibi
Nino wants Ohno, but does Ohno want him?"I have to stop giving myself excuses," Ohno continues, sitting next to Nino at the foot of the bed. "I'm giving both of us excuses all the time, but there is no excuse."Barriers
Early Ohmiya. Insanely cute.Ohno’s reaction was the most curious to Nino, though, in that there was none. Other than an ever so slight shift to lean closer, Ohno acted as if it was an every day occurrence. As if having Nino in his personal space was as natural as breathing oxygen or drinking water.importance
Nino waits, not realizing that someone else is waiting too. Gorgeous.Every time Ohno doesn’t connect the admittedly scattered dots, Nino feels that much farther away from him. things to do in uzbekistan
I couldnt decide whether to put this under AU or Ohmiya, but even though the boys aren't in Arashi, they are still Ohmiya. and it's not like they're pirates or cavemen. This is beautiful - Nino goes traveling, and meets a boy in Uzbekistan. I LOVE Ohno's family here.The boy's face has lit up with relief and curiosity, and he's halfway smiling at Ohno, the corner of his mouth curled wryly. There's a mole on his chin, and there's something about the corners of his eyes that makes Ohno want to touch them with his fingers.What I Like About You
Nino likes girls like Leader. Ohno has no idea what that means.He thinks about asking Aiba, but that would probably eventually involve flowcharts and diagrams and scientific inquiry, and Ohno has better things to do with his weekend.Years
Lovely love fall into Ohmiya. And I love both of their mothers so much."Excellent," Nino's mother said, clapping her hands together brightly. "You make an honest wife out of my boy, now. I am expecting no less than two grandchildren."
I havent updated here in forever. Ive been reading fic like crazy, but not posting. Because ive been head down in watching dramas, not in reccing them.
Here's a random selection of stuff in my recs folder, all of which got saved to the folder "Random Japan." Which might or might not mean these recs are from Japanese dramas.
A tiny look at He Qun through Vincent's eyes.
Nobuta wo Produce:Stars
Lovely little look at Akira and Shuji on one side of the country, and Nobuta on the other.This Geometry
A look at triangles, through three sets of eyes.
Separately, Together part one
, part two
, and To Be Great
Part of a series about Akira and Nobuta's evolving relationship. These are the two I like best.Lonely
Akira follows Shuji, and adjusts without Nobuta.drabble series
I ship Akira/Nobuta hard, but this little series with Shittaka/Nobuta just works so well. His nervousness, her silence, Akira's urge to throw things at people...
Eun Chan's bitchy little sister is such an awesome character! this is an awesome little fic about her and Min Yoep
Hana Kimi TW:Aftermath
both the manga and the twdrama gloss over the attempted sexual assault, which really does not work for me, especially with how hysterical Rui Xi is initially in the drama. this? this is dealing.
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon:down (and dirty)
mmmmmm, Nephrite/Ami. This is set after Ami returns from the Dark Mercury arc, and it's Ami's smile, with Dark Mercury's smirk behind it, and Ami would know if they were more then dreams, right? mmmmmmm.
Nodame Cantabile:al fine - to the end
This is lovely. Chiaki gradually falling, and Nodame gradually moving into his heart (and his apartment and his bed)
oops! i meant to spread these out, and ended up forgetting all about them, so here they are,17 fics of various fandoms, lengths, and crack levels. whoops! and THEN i managed to post them to my personal lj instead of minions. *sigh*
Tamora Pierce - Circle of Magic:
-Molten Metal and Miniature Trees
Daja, in mourning for Rizu, and after. I Love her and Briar's relationship here.
Orson Scott Card - Ender's Game series:
- IsabeauThe enemy's gate is down.
Ender, and how he sees things during training. Very interesting.
Madeleine L'Engle - Austin Murry O'Keefe family
-A Song by Starlight
Charles Wallace's final exam. I love Meg here. She might be grown up with 2 kids, but she is still very MEG. Stubborn and brave, and she loves her brother so much.
Somebody loves me, because all three of these are AMAZING
- Jane Elliot
Mac and Sam, trying to connect and find common ground.
-On the Occasion
AWESOME Mac voice, and I love how he sees Murdoc. Murdoc can't let Mac's 40th birthday pass by uncelebrated, can he? complete with handcuffs, coffin, and a vat of acid!
-It's a Trap
*cracks up laughing* Murdoc catches Mac yet again. I just..i cant..*snicker*
-Ingenium et Fides
Cordelia and Aral, debating about children after Miles. Chilling and funny and plausible. Oh, Miles
- Sadie Flood
Penny and Amber come to a truce. Sort of. This feels in characters and plausible.
-A Heaven of Blackbirds
Jaelle and Paul, Jaelle and Pwyll. Neat introspective into Jaelle's mind before/during/after the trilogy
Paul looking on life after. I love the thoughts on Kevin, and on never being in touch with Kimberly and Dave. I especially love the view on he and Jaelle and their relationship.
Fried Green Tomatoes:
-We'll Take What We Can Carry, and We'll Leave the Rest
Such a lovely look at how life could have been for Idgie and Ruth, if they had caught Ruth's cancer early.
This is hilarious! A reporter tries to get the scoop on what happened by interviewing Leeloo and Korbin. And Ruby. *snickers*
Drop Dead Gorgeous:
-I'll Fit Everything I Need in My Double-Wide
Annette never wanted anything more than Mount Rose, a pack of smokes, and Loretta. This is lovely and true and makes me very happy.
-Choose Water Over Wine
Chas learning his way. I like the feel of this, Chas tended towards optimism, and this feels like how he would see things.
Sarah and Casey, dealing with the joys of retail. *cackle*
-A Happy Ending
Jake follows the stories. Lovely and keeps the feeling of the brother's relationship. Jake/Angelika.
Diane Duane - Young Wizards:
-Lips to the Vessels, Throats to the Heavens
- Yuletide Fairy
This is BRILLANT, and works, and i love the Lone Power here, and the pomegranates.
Recently, i fell in love with yet another jdrama.
Nobuta wo Produce is adorable and fun and very very sweet. And I love Akira, and Shuji's exasperated acceptance of him, and both of their love for Nobuta.
So, have recs! If you know of other NwP fics, please link me to them, as I didnt find very many at all.Warmer Together
and The Morning After
These are lovely connected ficlets about Akira, Shuji and Nobuta seeing each other again. The details really make it so you can see each character. Can be seen as OT3 or as gen - there is a little cuddling, but that's it.The Roommate
Shuji is very very used to his weird life and weird Akira. He's never really thought about the fact that it is very very weird. Heh. Nice realization fic, and hilarious Akira characterization. Light Akira/Shuji, but really mostly gen. My favorite line:I mixed the red miso and the white miso ‘cuz I thought there would be pink miso but it just turned brown. Kindergarten was wrong.A Man of Conviction
Shuji is working very very hard not to mislead anymore girls. He just..hadn't planned to do it like this. *laughs hysterically* I love this Akira - goofy, insane, and perfectly willing to admit his first kiss was with his hand puppet. *kon* Light Akira/Shuji.Falling In and Out of Sanity
- Nu Hiep
I LOVE this story. Nobuta brings Akira and Shuji Mariko's baby, and insists they take care of it. It's not as silly as most stories about sudden babies, but is a good deal sweeter. Akira and Shuji are a team, and Akira might be an executive, but he's only playing executive - he's still crazy and weird and generally wonderful. I also love how it's just assumed that Shuji's dad took the news completely in stride, because he totally totally would. And would love a chance to play with the baby. The mental picture of Akira and Hikaru pressed together listening to Shuji's singing bedtime songs on Akira's voicemail is just..heart melting.Home and Heart
Akira and Nobuta come home to Shuji. Just lovely. All three of them are growing up - and Shuji sent them away so they could do what they wanted. Now it's Shuji's turn.Good Luck Pig
Akira and Shuji attempt to settle in at their new school. I very nearly wrote, "attempt to fit in," and that is NOT at all what's going on. Akira is very touchy feely in this one, and Shuji lets him with equal amounts of exasperation and fondness. This is Akira/Shuji, and very well handled. I love how Akira ends up basically living with Shuji, and how little Shuji's family even blinks at the whole situation.
I NEED MORE FIC. WHY IS THERE NOT MORE FIC? I NEED AKIRA/NOBUTA FIC! I NEED OT3 FIC! I NEED MOOOORE.
A selection of recs from Buffy and Angel fic, which isnt something i read or think to rec all that often. i have periods when it's ALL i want to read, and then i dont touch it for months. i have a huge folder to rec. it's a little scary.Intervention with the Vampire
Cordelia decides Angel is depressed and needs therapy. 3 therapists down, and then there are dinosaurs.this.is.hilarious."Then she ripped off her blouse and said, ‘Oh, Dark Master, take me. Make me one of your Immortal Children.'"Matchmaker
- Lesley-Ann Colgan
Dawn and Xander decide to help Buffy get a date. things..dont go well. *snicker* So many good one liners in here.Now I Live Here, Another Island
Buffy, Dawn, and Xander, surviving the summer after Tara dies and Willow goes crazy and Anya leaves. Sad and wistful and hopeful and true.Five Bastardized Virtues: Xander
I want to make out with this fic, it is so brilliantly written. 5 different things that could have happened during Buffy, to Xander.Once in a Lullaby
This is an amazing piece. it takes the idea from Normal Again that Buffy really is in a mental institution, and the vampires and everything are all in her mind. How the people around her fit into her imaginary world is the most intriguing part for me. I LOVELOVELOVE the Pike connection. gorgeous and very very cool.
A few more Tin Man recs, which i meant to have up yesterday. whoops!
if it's shippy, it's probably DG/Cain, as they make me happy.The Consort
WIP, but author claims to have 95% written, and it's being posted fairly quickly. Cain agrees to become DG's consort for political reasons. Intriguing and an interesting storyline so far. im looking forward to more.Now I Lay Me Down
a short little missing scene from part 2 of the mini. i like DG's willingness to lean on her new friends and Cain's protectiveness. Not Dark Yet
a collection of drabbles, loosely related. i find the Az/Zero ones to be a really intriguing idea. i particularly like Trust, Schooldays, and Love, or something like.Home for Christmas
another collection of short fics, these all centered around the idea of Christmas and the celebrations that DG
shares with the OZ.You Want to Know the Truth?
i like the way this is set up, and i like how reluctant Cain is, and yet..how not. not nearly as angsty as i was expecting. the ending is a little cheesy, but i really like the whole thing.Learning to Dance
lovely DG/Cain. needs a good beta for some grammer issues, but the story leaves me smiling. i love the playfulness of the fourth chapter - the image of Cain putting his hat on a hedgehog sculpture makes me squeal with cute. the smut is hot, but not overally graphic. overall=YAY.The First Snow in Kansas
i LOVE this. it's DG, back in Kansas, but she's..different. and then one day, a cowboy walks in. told through the eyes of a regular at the diner. wonderful.
I still have..entirely too many recs from yuletide
, but this 5 fics at a time thing works for me. Also, Im not combing through my recs folder trying to find yuletide stuff from the same fandoms. Im just going with whatever is on top. But, hey, more recs more often? AWESOME.
Phil of the Future:Feeling a Moment
Phil comes back to Keely, finally. Sad, and takes into account that Keely couldnt wait for Phil forever.
Princess Bride:There Will Be No Survivors (Except for the Survivors Behind the Curtain, But Pay No Attention to Them)
The future Dread Pirate Inigo is having some trouble settling down as a pirate. Left me grinning like an idiot.
Robin McKinley - Damar SeriesLake of Dreams
- Olivia Circe
Corlath meets Aerin. This fits so neatly into Damar, too.
This manages to weave pitch perfect character voices, emails from the reunion committee, and a Planeteers reference - all into one sweet story about getting back in touch with your friends. Adorable.One Thing Leads to Another
Layla, losing her idealism a little at a time. This is lovely and strong. And WARREN
, oh, Warren. He sounds like the Warren that lives in my own head.
Two sets of recs in two days? IVE GONE CRAZY.
I only have four for today, because I only have four Vorkosigan fics in my recs folder. There is never enough Vorkosigan fic, but what there is is awesome.Three Men Who Never Left Barrayar
Oh, this is an amazing look at how different lives could have been. And when you think about what will happen with those people missing..dude. This is sad and scary and a little wistful.Final Reunion
Taura's final moments. A fairy princess to the end. Lovely and sad and sweet.Five Ways Ekaterin Never Met Miles at Twenty
I love this. It runs the ranges of Ekaterin and Miles encountering each other on blind dates, as students, as random encounters, and my favorite, as a florist and Miles who desperately needs expensive flowers to get himself out of Alys bad graces. I really want to know about that duck, too. The fourth one, though, hurts.Night Visit
Cordelia makes three stops right after Mirror Dance. Aral, Miles, and Mark. Cordelia's strength shines here.
How far I have fallen.
Ive fallen into bandom.
and not just any bandom.
no. ive fallen into JAPANESE BOYBAND bandom.
also, im trying something new, because lately i go to rec things, and then i get paralyzed by the sheer number of fics I have to rec, so im going to start trying to rec 5, any fandom, once a week. or so. you folks know im not too good at schedules.Remedial Dating
Sho is fail with women. This is widely known. So, his stupid bandmates decide to...help. With all manner of useless lessons. That Sho fails. *snickers*Five Things Nino is Forbidden to Say in an Interview
This fic is about so much more than just Nino. Each section title is hilarious, and the way the boys abuse, love, and torment each other makes me grin madly. with evil glee.The Clothes Off His Back
This is lovely. The ending sections have a very dreamy quality to them. Ohmiya. What does it take for Ohno to see Nino like that?Jun Loves His Stupid Bandmates
This starts out sweet and full of Arashi love. And then the pinching and the tormenting starts. YAY. Jun really is so squishy for his bandmates. Even if they are all idiots.Girl!Arashi
So. What would happen if Arashi suddenly got turned into girls? Snark, sniping, and alot of groping. Naturally.
That's tonight's five. Ill try to post another five recs soon. Hopefully, ill post more this way. I still have a whole backlog of yuletide and remix recs. *sigh*
My mind got eaten by Japan. It's really not my fault. All of these are either drama based, or depend so little on manga versions that it doesnt matter.
Hana Yori Dango:Scarlet
Domyouji is inappropriately turned on. *purr* This is short, but very visceral. A Million Reasons
This is sweet and touching. Tsukasa will do anything for Makino. Even if she is stupid enough to get sick.All That I Need
Another sweet one. Tsukasa earns his way. With snark.Observation
Interesting little look at two people on a bus. I love the last line.Dilemma
Soujiroh/Akira and inevitability. Lovely lovely.Six Times Makino Tsukushi Was Annoyingly Late, and One Time She Wasn't
YES. Pitch perfect Makino and Domyouji, and her lateness is HILARIOUSLY awesome. Domyouji swings between completely insane and completely awesome, as he should. Well, he says the last bit in English, and it actually ends up "you trying to kiss bus" but Tsukushi is well versed in Domyouji-babble these days.
Gokusen: - Mainly manga-verse, but fairly easily understood by drama fans.30 Kisses
Shin/Yankumi. Falling in love in 30 parts. Very well written, and it allows Shin and Yankumi to handle things at their own pace.Shall We Dance
Yankumi lays a trap for herself. And falls right into it, and in love with Shin. A fun read. Gets a little goofy and a little too convenient close to the end, but still enjoyable.The simplest solution
Soft and lovely and waiting. Beautiful.Slight Misunderstandings
Yankumi misunderstands a few things. Like, the fact that Shin isnt gay. *giggles* Funny and touching.Write For You
Slow and lovely as Yankumi finally realizes. Classroom Interlude
YES. Ive been WANTING angry!confrontational!Shin after Yankumi resigns, and this delivers. Sadly, no porn, but some makeouts.The Absence of Nothing
- Avelynn Tame
Shin's interest in Yankumi, told according to his attendance records at school. Brilliant.
Hana Kimi:All That I Have
Nakatsu and Kayashima, after high school. Cute and adorable and left me grinning.A Little Ghostly Nudge
Nakatsu gets possessed. Sometimes it scares me that I belong to a fandom where people getting possessed is fairly routine. And generally hilarious. Nakatsu/Kayashima, with a little bit of help.Close Quarters
Nakatsu/Mizuki/Sano, in a way. Only not yet. Nakatsu discovers Mizuki's secret during a school wide sleepover.Gift Exchange
Ive yet to understand why Hana Kimi fandom isnt kneedeep in threesome fics with Sano/Mizuki/Nakatsu. IT SOLVES SO MANY PROBLEMS. This time around, Sano and Nakatsu pick out a gift for Mizuki.Crowd
MmMMM, threesome. This is lovely and lyrical in the discovery.Snapshots
I love the feeling of this one. Sweet Nakatsu/Kayashima.Tomorrow
Im a die hard Sano/Mizuki fan, but I love seeing how people handle Nakatsu's crush on Mizuki. This is lovely and sweet, and in its own way, sad. Because we already know how it's going to end.Smiles
It's SEKIME fic! *glee* Short and cute. Ashiya always sees him.
I have a scary number of Arashi fics to rec too. Will try to get to those tomorrow. Hope you enjoyed these!
was looking for nonWincest recs, so have an outpouring of stuff from my overflowing recs folder.White Pony
- creepy and turny and heart hurty. Oh, Sam. *weeps*A Warm Summer Rain
- this is the third in a series, but I really only like this one. Dean comes back to see a teacher who had an effect on him as a kid. it feels real.A Change is Gonna Come
- chilling and terrifying, in a quiet way. John made a wish. Just one little wish.Because I Could Not Stop for Death (He Kindly Stopped for Me
- hilarious and twisted. the boys develop an interesting curse. Again and again and again. *snicker* surprisingly touching, at the end.Six of One
I LOVE THIS FIC. It's amazing and twisty and plotty and so very involved. It took me until close to the end to figure out exactly what was going on, and then I immediately had to reread it. Gorgeous. Thunder Road
- This is such a cool look at something that FEELS like it could easily be canon. Sam gets a girl pregnant. Dean is told to take her to a clinic and take care of things. But, it's so much more than that, and so not simple, and so very Dean
.Days Like This
Angel crossover. Plotty and fun. Both Angel and Dean stay in character, and there isnt a lot of "AAAAAGH VAMPIRE!" which is nice.Crossroad Dirt
this fandom does bring the angst, and it brings it well. AU of Devil's Trap, and after. Sammy does what he has to do to save his family.Tell Dad, the gun works.Accidents Will Happen
- hilarious! told from an OC's point of view. Who accidentally brings John Winchester back from the dead.Wheel in the Sky Keeps on Turning
Countdown to Dean's death. Sam does word puzzles. Awesome and tense.Vocabulary
Highschool!Sam fic. Sam does his homework and figures out who he is. This flows nicely, and his utter confidence in his big brother is lovely.Family Business
- i havent even seen the ep in question, but this left me grinning like a loon.Walk Like a Man
fucking HILARIOUS. age regression fic...except their bodies dont de-age. just their minds. *cracks up*Fifty Miles of Humiliation
Several fics show how much of a spaz Sam is when he first meets Jess. This one? Goes the other way. And it's funny, and it's cringe inducing, and it makes me like Jess as a person.Snuffleupagus
*flaps hands* I cant describe this any better than the author does: Sometimes imaginary friends...aren't.
Gets you in the gut.The Day Dean Wouldn't Leave
This fic makes me snort water straight out of my nose. This is part of the Dean/Dana series - Dana, by the way, is a schoolmarm. And she makes Dean nonverbal and clumsy. And y'all? She thinks he is cognitively delayed.
It is the most hilarious thing Ive read in a while. And the following fics are HOT and awesome. I love Dana.
Yuletide Recs. I DID read in reverse alphabetical order, but then I went back and caught things I didnt see the first time, grabbed things from other people's recs lists, read some of the New Years Resolution fics..and ended up with some obscene number of fics in NO ORDER WHATSOEVER.
I kept trying to do one huge endless list of recs, and I finally figured out that would never ever happen. i value what's left of my brain too much. so, have a short list, with hopefully more to follow at some point in the future.
10 Things I Hate About You:all the things that start with p
Kat and Patrick. And they're snarky and cute and Kat totals his car. Yay!
Billy Elliot:Dancing Boys
They're best friends, even after being apart for so long. And best friends can become something else so easily. Lovely lovely. And they're a little awkward and off kilter, but they're so pretty.Just like - you're my other bit. My right arm
- Iseult Variante
Five jobs Angela has had. This weaves her past jobs and her current job in seamlessly with each other. This has a great Angela voice - she really comes through. Although picturing Angela working at Starbucks is very difficult.
Fairy Tales:The Troll Princess
A retelling of my favorite fairy tale, East of the Sun and West of the Moon, from the point of view of the troll princess. Awesome and hilarious. She's better off without him, the twerp!in the end she's got a husband who will probably beat her and I've got my own small fortune in impractical household objectsBittersweet
A slightly backwards version of The Frog Prince. What happens when the prince was waiting for someone who wasn't going to show? Well..there's always her brother...What the Pea Proved
a very different idea on The Princess and the Pea. Why WOULD a random girl be able to pass that test?The Man in the Mirror
shivery, creepy tale of what happens after the transformation in Beauty and the Beast
Little Miss Sunshine:a fucking conversation about whatever
Dwayne and Frank and a conversation. Nice.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit:The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down
- Merlin Missy
This has been recced all over the place and it SHOULD BE, because it is JUST THAT AWESOME. Campy and twisted and hilarious, with so many awesome references! EILONWY! Captain Caveman! The Warner Brothers and the Warner Sister!
Dead Like Me:The Bitter End
George and a coffee shop, at its simplest. It is, of course, more complicated. I really like how this feels - baristas always feel a little like they will be there endlessly, and it suits George.
Corny's a real gentleman, right enough. And Maybelle wonders if he'll ever get the hint.
The Babysitter's ClubAbby's Hanukkah Tales!
Absolutely HILARIOUS. And everyone is gay!
Frank L Baum - The Oz seriesEverything Changes (Except Oz)
Neat look at Dorothy and the Scarecrow and their relationship throughout the years
Sesame Street:Why Sex Ed Should Stay in Schools
DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILDHOOD TO REMAIN INTACT. READ THE TITLE. And then? Oh, MAN, this is so wrong. And it's even wronger because it actually sounds like something Ernie would do! And the oatmeal. OH GOD THE OATMEAL.
Arthur:Don't Ask, Don't Tell
Reads like an episode, especially the dialogue. A great way for a kid's show to approach the topic of homosexuality.
