First off, blithers and I want to say how excited and thrilled we both are about the support and enthusiasm shown for het-reccers this month. We've been emailing back and forth near-daily, pinching ourselves about how fantastic this community is!

Thank you to everybody who has posted recs, commented on posts, clicked on recs (and left feedback for authors!), signed up to be a special reccer, and cheered this community on. This community is a truly awesome group of people, and we're both so honored to be a part of such a kickass group.

It's also been a delight to see new followers, likes, and reblogs over at the Tumblr mirror as well. We hope rec posts are reaching new people over there and that longtime reccers are finding it useful and fun. (For those who are interested, we currently have 115 followers—and counting!)

Second, a few quick mod-type notes/reminders. In addition to our format for posts, we have a format for titles that we ask people to use:

Single rec: Title by Author (Rating)
Multiple recs: Fandom, # of recs, pairing

As always, all information about how to make a post can be found on our profile page under "Reccing Format.” Feel free to ping either of us if anything is unclear!

Also, LJ user links (i.e. the < lj user = name > thing) don't look great on Tumblr, because the profile icon doesn't load automatically on people's dashboards and instead shows up as a giant grey box. This is not required, but we do recommend avoiding LJ user links in the future when making recs and using a normal hypertext link instead (< a href = link url >) when linking to a user.

THANK YOU again, everybody!

(And for those of you in the United States, which we are: Happy Thanksgiving!)

Fandom Category: Hockey RPF
Pairing: girl!Patrick Kane/Johnny Toews
Fic Title: something old, something new
Author: longtime_lurker
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Word Count/WIP?: 19395 / complete
Recced By: blithers

Why This Must Be Read: Awesome, awesome genderswap fic. This world is one where a woman can play in the NHL, and Johnny Toews has been secretly and desperately in love with his teammate for years. Also, this fic is hot, it is hot like the sun, and has some of the best dancing-in-public-as-foreplay I’ve ever read.

Fandom Category: Hockey RPF
Pairing: girl!Patrick Kane/Johnny Toews
Fic Title: Write Our Names On the Wall
Author: twentysomething
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Word Count/WIP?: 15995 / complete
Recced By: blithers

Why This Must Be Read: This fic takes a bit of a different tact to the same pairing - it’s FWB that morphs into real feelings and is, again, RIDICULOUSLY HOT. I love couples that argue/compete with each other/try to one-up each other the entire time when they’re actually secretly crazy about each other, and this fic is that in spades.

Fandom Category: The Last Ship
Pairing: Rachel Scott/Tom Chandler
Fic Title: Third Time Lucky
Author: Maegfen
Rating/Warning(s): T; angst, mourning, canon character death
Word Count/WIP?: 3.2K
Recced By: raktajinos

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is perfect. Completely perfect. So go read it. Hahah. Maegfan takes a 'three times' approach here, with three times they kissed as the structure of the story. It takes place a few months after the season final; Mrs Chandler is dead and Tom has been mourning her. Seeing this strong, beautiful, devoted husband mourn is heartbreaking but it's important to see him go through it. To feel him go through it, and the friendship with Rachel that supports him. Then slowly, over time, for that friendship to turn into more. There's no infidelity or anything, which I love. It's organic, honest, and captures both of them to a tee. It's just perfect.

mods, if I could please have some new tags that'd be awesome. thanks.

Fandom Category: Arrow
Pairing: Felicity Smoak / Oliver Queen
Fic Title: Technical Assistance
Author: thatmasquedgirl
Rating/Warning(s): T+
Word Count/WIP?: 126,437 and counting
Recced By: angelica_rules

Why This Must Be Read: It is a UA where Felicity first meets the Arrow and then Oliver and doesn't know they are the same person. It is funny and well-developed and also has many, many side stories. The characters are well written, the slow-burn is to die for and it is still ongoing.

Author: mardia
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit; breathplay
Word Count/WIP?: 1,507
Recced By: eevilalice

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's hot and totally in character, with great kink negotiation. I love this Alicia.

Because who doesn't love the Mother of All Destiny gettin' some?

Fandom Category: Terminator
Pairing: Sarah Connor/Kyle Reese
Fic Title: The Unwritten Future
Author: pouncer
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Word Count/WIP?: 5,453 (complete)
Recced By: stars-inthe-sky

Why This Must Be Read: Though the universe has yet to grant me the TSCC version of the "Kyle lives!" AU we all want and need, I do like this one, which follows the first movie and doesn't let you forget that John was Kyle's commander before he was his son—or that Sarah and Kyle aren't so much deeply in love as thrown together and making the most of their reality.


Fandom Category: Terminator
Pairing: Sarah Connor/Kyle Reese, Cameron Phillips/John Connor
Fic Title: Tell Me How This Ends
Author: tevere
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Word Count/WIP?: 9,116 (complete)
Recced By: stars-inthe-sky

Why This Must Be Read: A post-series exploration of an assortment of characters and their day-to-day survival and how they view their alleged savior, this story is honest and a bit haunting in the way that the best Terminator fics are.

Sarah/Derek behind the cut!Collapse )

So...I might have...possibly...gone a little overboard with this. I just have so many FEEEEEEEELINGS about this ship, especially in the wake of CATWS and no one else is reccing them and WHY?? WHY AREN'T YOU ALL OVER THIS SHIP, FANDOM? But, ahem, for your convenience I've sorted these recs into loose categories.


7 epic length recsCollapse )

These next recs are all about the smut, b/c let's be real, that's what y'all are here for. This is just a sampling of some of the smut that's out there, but from what I've gleaned from my ahem, exhaustive research is that the Nat/Steve fandom has collectively decided that Steve really REALLY likes going down on Natasha. LOOK I DIDN'T MAKE THIS RULE, I'M JUST SAYING. (IT'S TOTALLY TRUE THOUGH, LIKE, WHERE IS THE LIE REALLY??)

14 smutty recsCollapse )

And last but not least, have some of my favorite stories that didn't fall into any of the above categories! *jazz hands*

3 more recsCollapse )

AND THAT'S IT. THAT'S ALL THE RECS. *collapses!* Enjoooooy! :D

It’s time—we’re restarting special reccer signups!

Who are special reccers? They are brave souls who take on the challenge on making at least 20 recs in 5 different fandoms over the course of a month (although more recs and more diversity is always appreciated!). We have a single special reccer each month. Months are assigned on a first come, first served basis. We are also continuing the tradition of special reccers getting their own special tag for the month here on the LJ comm.

Sign up by leaving a comment on this post. We’ll confirm your month, and then notify you again a week or two in advance to remind you of your signup when the time comes.

You can see the previous list of special reccers here.

Rec away!
