Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Title: Grounded
Author: Pares (kormantic)
Genre: Angst, First Time, Hurt/Comfort, Slash, Humor
Pairing: Jack/Daniel
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Existential Angst
Spoilers: Slight mention of Season Seven, Episode One - Fallen

Notes: This is a short piece, but very enjoyable.  Daniel is going through a mid-life crisis (uh, which life he's not really sure...)   Jack realizes something is wrong when he finds Daniel's notebook, filled quotes from dead philosophers like Kierkegaard.  So he kidnaps Daniel to get him out of the mountain, and things get a little out of hand.  I love the fact that he quotes Sappho - uh, never mind...not going to spoil anything, just read it and enjoy.

Oh, yeah.  There was a website listed for Pares on her Live Journal, but I kept getting an error message.  It may be temporary, so try it again, if you'd like...it may show up later.

Fandom: Firefly
Series: Glue
Author: Rebecca (blueraccoon)
Genre: Slash, Drama, Angst, First Time, Hurt/Comfort
Pairing: Mal/Simon
Rating: PG - NC17
Warnings: BCSM, Dom/sub, Fisting
Spoilers: None, really

Notes: I usually go looking for Mal/Jayne when I look at Firefly fic, but since this was Rebecca, I thought I'd read at least the first one, and see if I wanted to read more.  I finished the entire series that night, and was sad it was over.  Then I read it again.  And today, I decided to rec it, and re-read it again...just looking for warnings and such I might have forgotten...or something like that, yeah, that's it.... 

As usual with Rebecca, it's not an easy journey, but it works for me.  The main pairing in the series may be Mal and Simon, but pretty much all the characters are represented.  And they all fit.  If it weren't for the sex and stuff, this could be an episode - or several episodes, really.  It's all about how everyone fits into the crew, the way they fit together is like a jigsaw, according to River, and Mal and Simon are missing pieces that the other can fill.  The whole crew is like that, really, they just fit.  And Rebecca makes it work, and makes it enjoyable to read at the same time.

Fandom: SG-1
Title: Dare to Breathe
Author: The Grrrl, (thegrrrl2002)
Genre: Slash, First Time, Hurt/Comfort, Angst
Pairing/Characters: Jack/Daniel
Rating: NC17
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None

Notes: One of my favorite stories by The Grrrl.  They're trapped off world, and captured and abandoned by native soldiers, during wartime.  The way they care for each other, and find happiness together is beautiful.  It's not that simple, the way they're drawn is complex and intriguing, and the story holds your attention all the way through.  This story just makes me happy.

Fandom: SGA
Series: The Shark Trilogy, The Shiver Trilogy
Title: The Shark Trilogy: Out of Sight, Obvious Place, Open Blade
Author:  Magus Minor  (magus_minor)
Sequel Title: The Shiver Trilogy: Predator, Shiver, Frenzy
Sequel Author: Ellex (ellex42)
Genre: Slash, First Time, Drama, Angst, Hurt/Comfort
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Dark, BDSM, Violence
Spoilers: Season Two - general mentions of Ronon

Notes: Wow.  When the sga_flashfic's Shark Challenge came up, those of us who like our fic a little on the dark side got lucky.  Not only did magus_minor write an excellent trilogy but more than one person took her up on the opportunity to write their own fic based on hers.  They're all good, but ellex42's trilogy is just as good, if not better than the originals.  Okay, so my bias is showing...there are really only two problems with the first three: they're too short, and there's not enough sex.   You know me.  I always go for the sex - especially when it's kinky sex.  And it's definitely kinky sex.

In the first trilogy, Magus Minor sets up the premise:  John just happens to be a lot darker than people think...he's a sadist, and he enjoys it, although he tries hard to hide it, for obvious reasons.   I can't explain how because it would be a big time spoiler, but Rodney finds out.  The first trilogy leaves us there, without a real resolution - which is why, I'm sure, that Magus Minor threw out the invitation to others to write their own sequels.  And here's where Ellex comes in.  She takes that premise, and has Rodney turn the tables on John, and let me tell you - it's hot as hell.  I'm not going to say any more, you'll just have to read them and find out for yourself.

Oh, yeah...I honestly can't tell you how happy it made me to have Magus Minor use Mac the Knife to tie her three fic together.  I love The Threepenny Opera.  And another thing: Ellex's Frenzy was written for the 2006 version of the Kink and Cliche Challenge.  Damn but that challenge has had some good shit come out of it!

Author: Nyssa
Genre: Slash, First Time, AU
Pairing: Napoleon/Illya
Rating: NC17

Fandom: NCIS
Title: Words
Author: Nix (crimsonquills)
Genre: Slash, PWP, Established Relationship
Pairing: Gibbs/DiNozzo
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Kink (blindfold)
Spoilers: None

Notes: I just love this fic.  Sorry, had to get that out before I said anything else.  I put PWP down under genre, but it's more than that.  Yes, it all happens in bed, and the sex is intense and hot as hell, but it's the revelations both Tony and Gibbs make while they're there that make this such a wonderful fic. And both characterizations just shine.  I can't really say too much more without spoiling it for you, but even if you don't read NCIS, you can read this one, and totally understand what's going on.  She puts it right out there for you, and I love her for it.

Fandoms: Oz/Alias
Series: Cat and Mouse
Title: Cat and Mouse, With Teeth
Author: Sistersleep (visionofblue)
Genre: Slash, First Time, PWP, Angst, AU
Pairing: Keller/Sark
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Dark
Spoilers: None

Notes: I don't know a thing about Alias, except what Sistersleep and a few others have told me, but I love the character of Sark.  It's almost enough to get me into a new fandom, but I'm holding out, for the moment.  This AU is pure sex - hot, steamy and dangerous.  A perfect combination.  I love Keller, so real, so deadly, so in character, and I've been told that Sistersleep has captured Sark just as well.  I'm not surprised.  She's good like that.  So if you like your sex just shy of lethal, this is a good combination for you.  There are only the two right now, and she's said that there won't be more, but I keep my fingers crossed, 'cause I'd love to see another one, and besides, she has been known to give in to peer pressure...let her know if you like these, you never know.

Fandom: Oz
Title: Sweet Motherfucking Dreams
Author: Sistersleep (visionofblue)
Genre: Slash, Het, Hurt/Comfort
Pairing/Characters:  Simon Adebisi, Ryan O'Reily, Miguel Alvarez (every which way)
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Bondage, voyeurism
Spoilers: Through Season 2, Episode 1 - The Tip

Notes: I'm not really sure why I haven't rec'd Sistersleep before - I didn't realize I hadn't until just now.  So I'll take care of that.   This is another one of the Kink and Cliche fic from last year.  Her prompt were: something with leather and voyeurism, and she covered them rather well I think.  And a few others as well.  This takes place during The Tip, when Adebisi is suffering from withdrawl and is restrained in his hospital bed.   When Alvarez slips him a pill to ease the pain, his drug-induced dream is fascinating, chilling and totally hot all at the same time.

Title: Choirboy
Author: Mairead Triste
Genre: Slash, Angst, First Time
Pairing: Beecher/O'Reily
Rating: NC17
Warnings: NonCon
Spoilers: Through Season 1, Episode 6 - A Game of Checkers

Notes: Beecher and O'Reily share the POV here, and you get a good sense of the relationship between the two during that whole first season.  I was totally suprised by the turn in the end, not expecting it at all.  But it's actually in character for both of them, especially if you take into account O'Reily's Season Two "I'm not a fag" attitude.

Title: Abandoned
Author: Rustler  (rustler)
Genre: Slash, Angst, First Time
Pairing/Characters: Beecher/Mondo Brown, Keller
Rating: NC17
Warnings: None
Spoilers: Through Season 4, Episode 6 - A Word to the Wise

Notes: I don't know why, but I've always loved the scene between Beecher and Mondo in A Word to the Wise.  I love the way Beecher stares at Keller through the glass, the way he laughs at Mondo, and the way Mondo comes right back at him.  It's really a three way: Keller/Beecher/Brown, because despite the fact that they're in different rooms, Keller is very much a part of what happens.  This is a short piece, I kinda wish she'd done more, but it packs a punch, and just like  the rest of Rustler's fic, this one draws me in and makes me glad I read it.
