[sticky entry] Sticky: Recs

I figured it was high time for me to finally get around to posting all of my recs. Anyone at anytime can feel free to leave suggestions in the comments, and I will review them and add them to this post at my discretion (although of course I'm not going to stop anyone from making their own recs post if they want).

Updated 02-15-17 )

Also there is a prompt post here, feel free to add new ones!

New Member Introduction

Hi there! Hopefully this isn't out of place, but I didn't see any other 'introduce yourself' type instructions. If this is spammy, feel free to delete. :)

I'm Florian! I'm super new to this fandom. Like, finished-the-books-8-days-ago new. Since then, I've been devouring all of the fic and art I can find. I seem to have found the right comm though, because while I devoured the books and adored Vanyel, Medren, Stefen, Yfandes, et al, I have

*so*
*many*
*questions*.

Cut for whining... )

I did enjoy the books a lot, despite my complaints. I think part of the reason why I liked them was that I was looking forward to exploring the canon through fic, meta, art, etc. After reading Magic's Pawn I googled for fanart of the series and found this painting that I cannot stop drooling over. It gave me a lot of motivation to finish the series, knowing that there was a pretty active fandom. I didn't realize at the time how lucky I would get in that respect. It seems like this community has attracted a delightful group of fans, with a level of talent and productivity that really outstrips the size of the fandom (at least as far as I can tell, it seems like a pretty small fandom).

So anyway, I guess I just wanted to say hello, share my grievances, and say a enormous, giant *thank you* to all the fic, art, podfic, and discussion creators. Your work has been thrilling me all week since I finished the books!

context is purple af

I had writer's block for a sad long while aka 2016 but recently I put up the edited version of Strandline and a new Van/Stef pwp on AO3.

The pwp was a massive detour that came out of a Vanyel Sulking About His Lovelife scene from my snoverse file, which I figured I could share a bit more of here. It being snoverse only matters in that it's some context for Van wrestling with sexual trauma. Hoping I can liberate something else out of that file soon (there's even half a plot brewing there...)

[podfic] Pygmalion by Typhe

 My podfic of the amazing Pygmalion by Typhe!

this podfic contains: Dirty Talk, D/s, Humiliation, Light Bondage, Arguing, Classism, Comeplay, Face-Fucking

my fav thing abt this entire podfic is the consensual humiliation. I love it. you so very rarely get to see it, let alone see it done as well as Typhe has written it!

Also: apologies for butchering Stef's accent I just sort of...did a very broad australian accent ahahaha whoops in other news, i tried to do it as it was written, and I still can't fucking pronounce r's 

here is the mp3, click to stream, right click and save as to download (size: 37MB | length: 40 min 07 sec)

While this is part 3 of the Pact series, it can be read/listened to as a stand alone fic

Enjoy ;)

Fic, gen, ~2500 words

So I got seasons 7, 8 and 9 of Doctor Who for Christmas. This is the result of me rewatching all of the Vastra episodes. I actually started writing this last Christmas, hit a wall, then forgot about it, because who the fuck else would care? Truthfully an LHM/DW crossover has been the stuff of my cracky dreams for a while now. Then I finally actually wrote one and it’s…not crack. idk. (I hesitated to even post this here because honestly, it’s more Doctor Who than LHM, then I realized, it’s my comm. Muahahaha.)

oh and that other part of Strandline epiloguing

Some end-of-year deck clearing. I've been kicking these scenes around for way too long, as is evidenced by the fact that I posted the first two for Gilda's birthday. Pillow talk here but no porn. Also alludes to sexual abuse, no details.

Sex never used to mean a thing )

Amnesty - have more of The Lost One

For anyone who liked The Lost One (aka the Krebain/Van slave fic) - it unpacked itself a little more after the challenge was over. Much fluff.

Part 1
Part 2

i don't know what i'm doing but

Me trying to explain LHM to the friends like:

"you should totally read them, there are sad gays and talking horses"

"gimme those canonically queer pretties or gimme death, u feel"

"stef's like 'I wanna bang the hot guy' and vans like 'oh no he hero worships me and will do anything for my approval, even bed me' and stefs like 'WHY IS THE HOT GUY SO STUBBORN I still wanna bang him'"

why do these books read like a really good, if melodramatic, dark fanfic? i don't know, but i love it.

Fic, untitled 21 Days prompt fill, 7120 words, NSFW

Here are my efforts at participating [community profile] 21_days. I still kind of wish I could have written more of the Big Showdown, but eh. It's got porn and Vanyel not being a shitty boyfriend, that's all points covered, for me.

Chapter One )

The Dead Vanyel Memorial Party!



Main Post

21 Days of Valdemar is a three-week fic and art fest designed as a rapid-fire, short-term kink meme. Prompts begin Aug. 9; fills begin Aug. 16; fills end and reveals happen Aug. 30.

The fest was inspired by the FFA Woobie-Off and the successful campaign to crown Vanyel Ashkevron as the Woobiest Woobie of All Time. As such, while we're excited to prompt and fill for all Valdemar books, we're also totally okay with 75% of prompts focusing on Vanyel/Further Trauma and Vanyel/Protective Blankets.

fic - Strandline, epilogue 1/2

GILDA, WHO IS OLD TODAY <3

I have been poking at four Things That Happened After Strandline; this is two of them. Much awkward, much self-indulgence. :P

What if I'm only prolonging another grievous mistake? )

fic - Serendipity - end

- but not so much of an ending. If you don't recall, this was started 3 years ago - I've made a few tweaks over time and have simply edited the two old posts, here and here. More polished version of this fic now available here on AO3. eh. Ngl mostly posting this so as not to waste thousands of words of Stef whining. this is my crack.

bleeding and scratching against all I can touch of that compassion )

Strandline - end (for now)

agghfffghgh this took a while. But it is wrapped up for now? I have a halfassed epilogue lying around but no idea how long that will take to become presentable. At some point I'll also likely polish this fic up for AO3, so please tell me what you think needs fixed (all of it) (etc)

That was madness speaking )

Strandline, part 8 (slightly NSFW)

-this one took...a lot longer than I expected. Stuff happened; technology meltdowns, travel, etc. I only wrapped it up due to getting stuck in this god damn blizzard (I KNOW RIGHT. THIS SHIP). Lessons learned; never write 30k of build-up to a bad one-liner. It makes carrying on kinda hard.

Nothing graphic here - bit of softcore. There is also some passing mention of sexual abuse - again, nothing graphic or descriptive.

(no subject)

So, while I can't hope to possibly compete with thene's INCREDIBLE au, and I am not even trying to, I did promise my strange ghost (porn?) fic post-AU-pirate-porn, so here goes nothing.

Remembering hope, part one )
