Fic rec Fridays, on a Sunday! At this point I'm just going to accept that me actually doing these on Fridays is part of a running joke. This weekend's excuse involves a Friday split between a graphic novel brainstorming sesh and a Buffy marathon, with not a lot of extra time in between, and a Saturday spent at a culture fest where a friend of mine's band was playing, plus my housemate's birthday party that went completely insane and involved me throwing someone against a wall to keep them from attacking their girlfriend. I spent this morning in the ER with a friend with a foot that is fortunately not broken, and I am TIRED.
Anyway, thank goodness for fic. Keeps me sane.SupernaturalPilate
(3k) – askance. Beautiful, sad as all hell, meshiach fic. Sam is a modern messiah, and he bleeds like one. Dean is helpless.Harry PotterThrough the Frame
(1k) - I Was Here Moments Ago. Sirius sees the man on the bus every morning on the way to work. He can't help imagining a life for him. (muggle AU)
Starts out as a strangers-meet trope, ends in a lovely and softly happy, softly sad fashion. Remus/Sirius.On a Clear Day
(43k) – Sarah’s Girl. Draco Malfoy is waiting for his real life to begin, and it appears that he's not the only one. Coffee, charity, and the wisdom of the elderly. HPDM. Oneshot of epic proportions.
An old favorite. I love stories about people slowly healing - it's nearly equaled by my love of slow build romance. H/D, post-war. Teen Wolf The Boy and the Beast
(116k) – Dira Sudis. In which events in Beacon Hills go rather differently from the start, and a Beauty and the Beast (ish) story ensues. (Scott is not a teacup and no one sings about their feelings.)
HELL YES well-done longfic. An AU crafted with care, somewhat mushy. I'm always a sucker for characters going through life-threatening injuries in dire places, but this explores even further. Sterek.catch me if you can
(11k) – isawet. What do you think of my solution to the Kobayashi Maru?
Incredibly written shattered narrative. Has hilarious bits and heartwrending bits and don't even get me started on the ending.quick pull trigger
(1k) – isawet. Stiles and Derek centric, focusing on their manpain and the way they're actually, under it all, good for each other.may your path be the sound
– magneticwave. This may make Melissa a terrible mother, but things were so much easier when Scott and Stiles were unpopular and spent their weekends on either her or John’s couch, playing Mario Kart and talking about all of the stuff they were never going to be cool enough to do. Scott and Stiles’ weekends now mostly involve blood and Derek Hale.
Melissa McCall/Sheriff Stilinski. Done with feeling and warmth - not just mashing them together because they're two single people of the same age and opposite genders. Mrs. Stilinski given great character as well, and it's nice to see the parents' side of things in a teen TV show.The Scientific Method
(6k) – uraneia. Stiles’s life was so much easier before his BFF got super powers. “But, so, werewolves have super strength, right? And super speed. And better vision, and better muscle control, and healing powers, and stuff. And some of that’s probably, like, genetic, if you can be born a werewolf. Right?” / “Yeah,” Scott says. From the perplexed look on his face, he doesn’t yet know where Stiles is going with this. “So?” / “So what if you have condom-defeating supersperm?” Stiles has a lot of research to do. He decides Derek's kitchen is the place to do it. Derek probably regrets giving him a key.
It's fucking hilarious. Can you imagine the research montage? GOLDEN. Sterek.when the wind is warm or the crickets sing
(2k) – magneticwave. Being normal is not necessarily a virtue. // Or, the wedding of Dr. Lydia Martin and Jackson Whittemore, Esq.
Practical Magic/Teen Wolf crossover, everything I needed. I LOVE THAT MOVIE ahem. Some fun moments, some pretty moments, some references to Lydia Martin dancing naked under the moon with the Owens girls.just pretending that we’re cool
(9k) – magneticwave. In retrospect, using sex to trick Derek out of stalking Scott had maybe not been the greatest idea ever? Whatever, Stiles’ plans always manage to work themselves out. Chemistry geeks are intelligent, sleepless, and hot as fuck. Just like this fic. Though I did kind of start screaming in horror at the sex scene in an organic chem lab, holy god. I used to put in two plus hours a day in labs, which isn't a ton, but it got me to the point that I understood how fucking toxic everything was and paranoid about touching my lab notebook with my bare hands, much less having sex on a lab table. GLASS. ACID. SELF-IGNITING EVERYTHING. ORGANIC CHEM LABS OH MY GOD. But it's still hot, and well-written, well-characterized. Sterek. Scott not made dumb!!A secret no one knows
– scoutshonor. Hilarious, touching, capped off with some pretty hot sex. Sterek.You’re the message I was heedng
– magneticwave. Stiles Hale: Schrödinger’s widow.
Hurts like a bitch, but I'm kind of in love with fem!Stiles here. Strengths and faults, good things and terrible ones.Pride & Prejudice (with some other Jane Austen tossed in, what even)i’ll write you a harmony in c
(32k) – magneticwave. “Mum, the fact that Lydia was the first of us to end up barefoot and pregnant is honestly a source of continual surprise to me.” // As it turns out, Mary Bennet’s internal checklist to Being a Good Person—go to medical school; join Médecins Sans Frontières; save lives—is a somewhat oversimplification of matters.
SOMEONE WROTE A BISEXUAL MED STUDENT DYED-HAIR MARY BENNET, BLESSED BE. I loved that I wasn't actually sure who she was going to end up with, or if she was going to end up with anyone, clear through most of the fic. And the stress on family life, through thick and thin and absolute batshit madness, wove everything together. True to the original Austonian themes, this modern!AU.
