Sense8 - 2 Riley Blue/Will Gorsky recs

Fandom: Sense8 AU
Pairing: Riley Blue/Will Gorsky
Title: trials and tribulations of a tiny couch
Author: Esyla on AO3

Recced on LiveJournal By: vikingprincess

Why This Must Be Read: If you’ve watched Sense8, you already know that Will and Riley are super-sweet together, and that it’s a Bad Idea for all sorts of reasons. In this AU, however, as the two of them stumble from a fake relationship arranged for Riley’s protection into a real one, we’ve got all of the sweetness with very little of the badness. Even if you haven’t watched the series, this is an adorable take on the “fake boyfriend” trope.

Fandom: Sense8 post S1
Pairing: Riley Blue/Will Gorsky (Amanita/Nomi, Hernando/Lito)
Title: When the devil is on your tail
Author: Hannahteresia on AO3
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/4223859?view_full_work=true
Rating/Warning(s): Mature – author chose not to include warnings (but reccer says, if brief non-graphic –so far— mention of same-sex couples is not something you want as part of your het couples’ stories, skip this one)
Word Count/WIP? 2600/Yes
Recced on LiveJournal By: vikingprincess

Why This Must Be Read: True love sacrifices. In this case, it sacrifices senses, brainpower, and almost any awareness at all in order to protect lover and family. Canon-compliant, with what may be answer to the terrible question of “how in hell will they manage to escape their own minds” that ended the show’s first season. While it’s a WIP, it definitely gives the ensemble balance and sense of urgency that the show provided, and the characterization rings quite true.

Mods, could we get fandom and pairing tags, please?
