Teen Wolf, 2 recs, girl!Stiles Stillinski/Derek Hale

Fandom Category: Teen Wolf
Pairing: girl!Stiles Stilinski/Derek Hale
Fic Title: But I'm Not a Soldier
Author: idyll

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Humor, AU, Genderswap
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 4 of 30

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, cards on the table: I love the Stiles genderswap trope in Teen Wolf fanfiction. There's some seriously fantastic stuff out there, and I find it fascinating how different authors find the essential Stiles-ness in the character while still picking out the little differences that come from growing up as a girl. This story, for example, is a pointed and hilarious take on the whole Derek-is-really-into-intimidating-people-by-slamming-them-into-walls thing. Spoiler alert: the answer here involves pepper spray.

“No, see, no, because I am human and a female! You don't get to domestic violence me, dude. Just, no. I'm not going to become some Lifetime story because, sure, my life is sort of pathetic and, now, sort of tangentially supernatural, but--” It's important. This is important. She takes a huge, gulping breath, exhales unsteadily, and when she finishes, her voice is focused and clear: “I am not that girl and that shit's not on.”

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, warning for underage sex
Genre: Romance, AU, Genderswap
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 5 of 30

Why This Must Be Read: In contrast to the first rec, this story is unabashedly romantic. I've re-read this fic a couple times and I'm always impressed with the building of the Stiles/Derek relationship, the characterization, and the way that the female friendships between girl!Stiles, Lydia, and Allison are written. And it's sexy! Very (werewolves) sexy! Go, read, enjoy.

"You Will Always Fall In Love, And It Will Always Be Like Having Your Throat Cut." by redbrunja (R)

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Clint Barton
Fic Title: You Will Always Fall In Love, And It Will Always Be Like Having Your Throat Cut.
Author: redbrunja
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): R/NC-17, sexual content, sexist slurs.
Genre: romance
WIP?: no
Summary: Natasha Romanoff moves like the flash of light off a knife blade.

Why This Must Be Read: I must admit I don't read a lot of Natasha/Clint fic, but this grabbed me because it's both wonderfully written and has a really interesting Clint POV. It's also quite short, but it manages to convey a lot about their dynamic. Also great sex, ha.
