Rec Post!




I don't think I failed and I hope I got all the points I need. I doubt I met my predicted scores, which were ridiculously high, but I did well enough (I think) which is all I wanted. I'm just so glad it's over.and to celebrate, I have made a rec post!

My ways of dealing with stress mostly involve reading fic, 'cause it gets me out of my brain and calms me when I start panicking, so I went through a lot of fic over the exam session and I've posted a selection of my favorites here. They're mostly newish, apart from a couple that I saw linked on my twitter feed. I also mainlined [personal profile] littlemousling , [personal profile] inlovewithnight and [personal profile] lalejandra 's back catalogues.

Seperated by fandom, with writer summaries and my notes. Read warnings on the actual fic.


Run Full Speed by la_dissonance
Band: Empires (Sean/Ryan)
Summary: If there's no kindness left, Ryan will have finally gotten away.

Notes: ugh, this is lovely. Ryan breaks up with Sean and leaves the band by just not ever coming to practice again and avoiding everyone. It's really good emotional porn and is a great bandom tradition: characters sabotaging themselves because they're kind of assholes but trying to be better.

Never Be Done by jae_w
Band: Panic, Empires (Jon/Tom)
Summary: Post-WWI AU. Jon wants to see something new.

Notes: I'm a total sucker for a good historical AU and this captures the atmosphere of post-WWI America so well. You can feel the close hints to the past and the world outside but the story is very contained and lovely. Very beautiful.

Watch Them Busting Out by manipulant
Band: Panic! At The Disco (Brendon/Spencer)
Summary:Spencer finds out that Brendon's nipples are wired straight to his dick. Oh exploitable.

Notes: Pretty self-explanatory from that summary but very hot Amazing dirty talk.


One Direction

Writing Moments on the Wall With Different Colours by fiddleyoumust and lissa_bear
Summary: He’s not going to find the right answer by making lists of pros and cons. The truth is that he loves them both. He doesn’t know why everyone tries to sell some true love fantasy about finding “the one”, because now more than ever Harry knows that doesn’t exist. He is definitely in love with two people, two completely different people with completely different personalities, and there is no right choice.(Zayn/Harry, Harry/Louis, Louis/Zayn and then Louis/Zayn/Harry)

Notes: kjhfslkjfa, this is amazing. A really lovely build up to polyamory and reads very nicely in its context. Everyone's motivations make so much sense and I love the relationships that already exist as part of the story. Amazing romance and realisation, I loved it and have read it about six times since it was posted.

Wishing (Will Make It So) by harriet_vane
Summary: a WWII evacuated kids AU for the One Direction kids

Notes: basically, this is the most adorable thing of all time. The five boys are evacuated from London to the countryside and they don't know each other but soon become firm friends. Liam worries about everything and everything is adorable.

Hello Sunshine by drunktuesdays
Summary: Harry Styles met Louis Tomlinson on the train to Hogwarts when he was eleven years and two days old. (a wand erection au)

Notes: A Harry Potter Au! You'll probably get tired of me saying "adorable" about One Direction fic but this is very cute. It's quite short but the writer makes it feel a lot longer, the story feels very complete and the characters really fit into the world. Wonderful comfort fic.

Follow Us by harriet_vane
Summary: Zayn kissing boys ♥

Notes: EEEEEE. Zayn is my favorite of all time and this is just a short piece about the boys being silly and Zayn kissing Liam but ♥ ♥

Be Still by harriet_vane (sequel to Follow Us)
Summary: Zayn has a funny restlessness building inside his chest and he doesn't know what to do with it.

Notes: &ZAYN; Basically Zayn is confused about ~~kissing boys and he tries with a boy at a club but it's NOT THE RIGHT BOY (Spoiler: Liam is the right boy. ♥ ♥ ♥) Ugh, these boys.

i can't tell, you're already red by amongseafarers
Summary: "Even when he's not around, Liam still manages to invade every part of her life."

Notes: always-a-girl Zayn (who, be the way, I imagine as being smoking hot) jerks off alone and then Liam walks in and they have sex. Sounds simple and a little odd? Well, it's not, it's awesome.

The Difference Between Knowing and Knowing by loxover
Summary: “They say I’m in a band,” Liam tells his mom. He squeezes his eyes shut, his phone pressed tight against his ear. “I don’t even remember any of it.” In which Liam gets temporary amnesia and forgets things even more important than the fact that he's in a band.(Liam/Zayn)

Notes: ADORABLE. Liam has amnesia! All the band are still his bros! It is fantastic.


The Avengers

I've been using these two amazing rec lists that someone linked on twitter, which have been very useful. I haven't read everything on them, just the stuff I liked the sound of.

Loki centric and Tony and Steve centric fics and Steve/Tony rec Masterlist

Gift of Asylum by carleton97 and Sister_Wolf
Summary: The story of how Darcy Lewis accidentally helps found the Avengers while having an epic, failboaty romance with that dude she nailed in a bar two years ago. Tasers, jackbooted thugs, Tony Stark, and life-altering job offers are par for the course when you help discover an alien/god dude with amazing pecs.(Clint/Darcy, other side pairings)

Notes: This is amazing. Multi-chaptered and WONDERFUL, the focus is very much on Darcy and how amaxing she is. Her and Clint work

together amazingly and Darcy kicks ass and basically one of my favorite Avengers fic. Written pre-Avengers movie, so not canon-compliant past Thor but it is FANTASTIC, seriously. It has two sequels, you should read those as well.

Wilt Thou Exchange by twentysomething
Summary: "The first time Steve meets Toni is about a week after he wakes up"

Notes: Really amazing always-a-girl Tony and Steve. They fight together, lead a team and fall in love and Steve woos her. Lovely Captain American voice and Toni is very easy to picture and love.

Tears Will Be Mandatory For This Event by valtyr
Summary: Written for the Cap-Ironman post celebrating the NY marriage same-sex marriage laws - Ultimate Steve and Tony respond to the new laws.

Notes: Short, sweet, domestic and lovely.

Shade Without Color by zeplum
Summary: Based off the thin connection between Captain America and MCR's video verse for "The Ghost of You".Steve takes a drawing class, meets Gerard who's in a similar situation, but also has this band, see...and then worlds collide. Steve POV.

Notes: bandom crossover! Steve and Gerard meet in an art class. Follows Captain America's timeline and the Ghost of You timeline faithfully, so very sad, but a lovely crossover.

Tolleranza by Resonant
Summary: Commandos era. Steve goes to a brothel and learns something.

Notes: A very nice piece about Steve asking a prostitute to let him watch her and her fellow have sex so he can "learn". A nice character piece and very hot, with a lovely atmosphere and sense of world-building.

Under Ether by Lunik
Summary: Loki is captured by SHIELD and deemed not fit to be left alone while on painkillers and in handcuffs. Now he's Darcy's problem.(Eventual Darcy/Loki)

Notes: The best part is when Loki pretends to still be high on painkillers so ha can spend more time with Darcy. ♥

the Loki's Brood series by Lunik
Summary: Nick Fury circles the realm Midgard with his coils. Phil Coulson has seen enough of chains for one lifetime. Darcy Lewis is taking a break from Helheim. But there's still the matter of their brother Sleipnir...

Notes: Nick Fury, Phil Coulson and Darcy are Loki's kids (the mythological ones, Jorgamund, Fenrir and Hel) and they rescue Sleipnir from Asgard and have family!adventures. Cute and a lot less cracky than you would think.

Kinkmeme Made Them Do It by Lunik
Summary: When the Avengers RPF kinkmeme happens, Darcy is all over that shit. So, it turns out, is Loki.They bond over the crack and the pr0n and somehow, end up meeting up - epic WTF and hot metatextual sex ensues.

Notes: Fantastic kinkmeme fill that basically does what it says on the box. Darcy and Loki bond over being RPF shippers. Hilarious and well written and overall greatness.

Margins by gqgqqt
Summary: Phil doesn’t know what, exactly, but something is wrong. Clint shows up two hours late to work instead of the usual half-hour, and when he walks into the briefing room, he settles silently in his chair and sits perfectly still.

Notes: Clint has some serious sub-drop and Phil is there for him. ♥ ♥

One Rule by Perpetual Motion
Summary: They agreed to one rule. (SPOILERS) (Clint/Phil)

Notes: Clint and Phil fix-it fic for The Avengers film.

Art Nouveau Captain America and Iron Man

Notes: really lovely Cap/Iron Man Reverse Bang art in the Art Nouveau style. Seriously, first time I saw these I legitly gasped. Amazing.



and love is not a victory march by andromeda311
Summary: Zoe, post-traumatic stress disorder, and the new pilot. Pre-series.

Notes: A very lovely insight into Zoe's character pre-series and incredibly cute.

Solar Cycle by kaydeefalls
Summary: In retrospect, Zoe figured it stood to reason she'd be the one to forget their anniversary.

Notes: Zoe forgets their anniversary, Jayne joins the crew and Zoe and Wash make up. Lovely day-in-the-life of Zoe/Wash.



What Looks Like Crazy by hermette
Summary: Three years after being diagnosed with HIV, Merlin Emrys is managing, if not quite coping. Enter Arthur Pendragon, the man who doesn't know how to take no for an answer. (Terminal illness: HIV/AIDS, past minor character death, non-explicit alcohol and drug use)

Notes: Heartbreaking and amazingly uplifting in all the right ways. Arthur's characterisation comes off perfectly, someone who means well but is used to always getting what they want. Arthur and Merlin, their love is one for the ages. ♥


And that's all folks! I am exhausted and probably going to sleep for a couple days but I am so excited to do all the things that are not my

exams. I'm booked up to mix for bbb, beta for wave two and write for wave three. I also promised [profile] presseunblau I'd write presseunblausome One Direction porn, for her birthday, so I'm working on that.

*sigh* Not worrying feels amazing
