I'm not in the Merlin fandom, but you don't have to be to enjoy this fic. I'm sure there are Merlin-things I missed, but I read it as an original slash fic set in fandom. The premise is that two fanboys, one a BNF and the other a lurker, get to know each other on LJ and fall in love. It's so freaking adorable and funny, and taps into the politics of fandom, good and bad, in brilliant ways. The characters are drawn so well that it's easy to imagine that they're real people.

Pairing Pendragon/Merlin by an anon author.

Highly, highly recommended reading, for anyone in any fandom! I should also note that this fic made me think about a certain romance between two HP fanboys several years back (one of whom was a huge BNF), and whose developing relationship was the subject of MUCH discussion and fangirling. At least four of you out there probably know who I'm thinking of... ;-)

Cura Te Ipsum by [ profile] lindmere, Kirk/McCoy, NC-17.

Holy shit, but this is good writing. The characterizations, the universe-building, the details, and OMG the smoking-hot sex -- all of it is amazing. About halfway through this fic I realized this was the Kirk/McCoy fic I've been waiting to read. Gorgeous.
emmagrant01: (ST: Chair!sex)
I'm in the mood for seriously porny PWPs, preferably Kirk/McCoy, but I also like Kirk/Spock, Sulu/Chekov, and Spock/Uhura. What is the hottest, porniest thing you've read lately? Rec meeee, please!!!
emmagrant01: (Kirk: Good for you?)
Holy fucking hell. How many of my kinks does this piece of fanart hit? Like, IDK, 12???

[ profile] cathybites, you rock!

Okay, there will probably be some fic about this one...

I have joined the 21st century and posted my Star Trek recs on here. I should have done that a long time ago, but I guess better late than never, eh? It looks like it's going to be super easy to keep up with.

Link me to your recs pages? :-D

Out of curiosity, I did a search on myself to see if any of my fics had been bookmarked by other people. Interestingly enough, my recent ST fics had a lot more bookmarks than my HP fics!

If you are a Kirk/McCoy fan, you have to go read this short fic (Unlisted Side Effects of Metacetamin-Derived Opiates) by [ profile] fahye. With accompanying porny art by [ profile] lizardspots, OMG!! It pretty much represents everything I love about these characters, wrapped up into one shiny, sexy little package. YUM. :-D
emmagrant01: (Kirk/Spock original OTP)
Oh, I am so loving this fandom!! All porn this time, people. Oh, yes.

Stars Apart, Shine the Same by [ profile] sineala, Kirk/Spock, NC-17. There have been quite a few fics tackling Kirk's reaction to the mind meld with Spock Prime, but this one? Oh, this one. It's so perfect it HURTS.

Medical Observation by [ profile] anowlinsunshine, NC-17, Kirk/Spock with voyeur!Bones. HothotHOT, fucking hot. With cocky-slutty!Kirk and stoic!Spock, and YUM. Did I mention hot?

Okay, I think I want to write something now. *wanders off to check out all the prompts at [ profile] st_xi_kink*
emmagrant01: (Spock/Uhura)
I'm currently reading the novelization of Star Trek, which is an interesting experience. It's been a while since I've read pro sci-fi, and I forgot how dry and emotionless it can be. The book is also surprisingly messy, with glaring continuity errors, almost as if ADF kept going back and editing as he saw cuts of the film. It needs a good beta. :-P

It's kind of fun to read the fleshed-out version of the screenplay, though it still reads like fanfic. I'm enjoying seeing Kirk presented as a major slut, for example. There's this whole exchange where Uhura and her Orion roommate talk about the fact that Kirk has fucked his way through half the cadet corps, including some of the non-humanoids. Notice how there's no mention of gender there? Heh. He's like the Jack Harkness of the Trek world! Oh, and that exchange, btw, was preceded by the PG-est description of oral sex I have ever read. ;-)

Anyway, reading that book has sparked my interest in Spock/Uhura, so I went looking for fic. Okay, I went looking for porn, really. And there was not much to be found. Horror of horrors, the vast majority of S/U fic seems either to be PG (gasp!) or all about pon farr. And I'm just not that interested in reading pon farr fics right now. Maybe it's because that trope has been co-opted into every possible fandom (veela!Draco, pon-farr!Qui-Gon, and every other variation of fuck-or-die out there) to the point of being boring, but it just seems like lazy writing at this point. It's way too easy a tool to hook Spock up with people. I want more than that, you know?

I think I'm going to have to write a Spock/Uhura fic. One is forming in my mind, and I'm almost ready to start working on it. I haven't written for almost 18 months, but I think I'm ready to give it a try. Woo!

In the meantime, here are a couple of Spock/Uhura fics I found that I really liked. Enjoy!

Contingency, by [ profile] femmenerd, R. Really nicely written, with perfect characterizations.

Letting Go, by [ profile] inell, NC-17. Good old-fashioned porn, just what I was looking for! Yum..
emmagrant01: (Spock: Bitch please)
I've been reading lots of ST fic, which is harder than it sounds as I'm currently a SAHM and DH is out of town -- so 24/7 toddler chasing. BG is sleeping now, which means I have a chance to make this post. Yay!

I thought I'd be all about the Kirk/Spock, and I am, but I am also all about the Kirk/McCoy, much to my surprise. I haven't yet had a chance to read Sulu/Chekov or Kirk/Spock/Uhura, both of which I'm really excited about. Something else I'm loving is that so many of the people I see writing these fics are familiar to me from other fandoms, as far back as my years in Star Wars. It's so cool to read their work again, you know?

These fics are the best of the ones I've read, and they all hit my personal happy buttons of guys acting like guys, great characterization, and realistic sex. Judging by the number of comments on each, lots of people have already read them, but I'll add my kudos to the pile.

Barely Perceptible Green by [ profile] woebetidesweets, Kirk/Spock, NC-17. Short, hot PWP. Perfect Spock POV.

A Moment of Our Silence by [ profile] keelywolfe, Kirk/Spock, NC-17. Glorious H/C sex, set right after the movie ends.

We Learn Each Other Slowly by [ profile] raphaela667, Kirk/Spock, R. Twisty relationship stuff, great dialogue.

Awake by [ profile] the_dala, Kirk/McCoy, NC-17. OMG, drunk buddy-sex is SO hot!

I'm Just A Jealous Guy by [ profile] londondrowning, Kirk/McCoy, PG-13 (but don't let that deter you). Great relationship dynamics, and still manages to be incredibly hot.

Four Times Jim Kirk and Lenore McCoy Didn't Fuck (and the One Time They Did) by [ profile] telesilla, Kirk/female!McCoy, NC-17. I never liked genderfuckery until this fandom, but I'm reading a lot of it lately, and liking it. This is one of the best: hot, funny, sharp, pretty much perfect.

THIS fic by [ profile] phaballa is probably the funniest bit of crackfic I have ever read*. Seriously. I don't even know who those characters are. It's original fic, as far as I'm concerned, and I seriously snorted some coffee through my nose while reading it. And am now late for an appointment, fuck.

*Okay, the funniest since she wrote that Anderson Cooper/Jon Stewart fic that I also thought was the funniest thing ever.
emmagrant01: (Harry/Draco in bed)
Just when I need a bunch of good, angsty, sexy, H/D fics, this list of fics contributed for the [ profile] serpentinelion Wishes and Fantasies Fest is posted. I'll be over here curled up on the sofa, reading. *happy sigh*
emmagrant01: (pimpin')
Title: Might Be a Sin
Author: Flora
Fandom: Huck Finn
Character: Huck
Rating: R


Short and sweet, and more than worth a few minutes of your time. I love it!
emmagrant01: (laugh)
Lots of fun stuff came out of last night's [ profile] slushes party, but I think this is my favorite:

Title: Pundits for Potter
Author: [ profile] phaballa
Warnings: News anchors getting it on while discussing Harry Potter.
Pairings: Jon Stewart/Anderson Cooper/politics

This is hilarious and hot and really well done considering the condition she was in when she wrote it! And the last line? Dude.
