Another entry for this month's smut challenge!

Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/James "Bucky" Barnes
Title: come and get your love
Author: tremontaine

Word Count/WIP?: 8,433 (complete)
Recced on LiveJournal By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: I really enjoyed this fic, in which a new couple explores and experiments together, for its embrace of a relaxed, open dialogue and its ability to get adventurous without defaulting to darker themes. It's fun, funny, and heartfelt, and that's before you get to how great the actual sexytimes get.

Mass Effect, 6 recs, various pairings

Fandom: Mass Effect

Why This Must Be Read: So Joker isn't romanceable canonically but this is a great imagining of how a romance with him could work out, especially given the ending of ME2 and the guilt Joker feels over the fact that she died to save him. A beautiful and long, plotty read.

Pairing: Female Shepard/James Vega
Title: The Challenge

Why This Must Be Read: Shepard and Vega decide to do a 21 Day Sex Challenge to spice up their relationship. I adore this story. Like, yes, obviously it's super hot, but it's also incredibly sweet and I love their relationship and how they can laugh about some of the more ridiculous things they do as a result of this challenge.

Pairing: Tali'Zorah nar Rayya/Kal'Reegar

Why This Must Be Read: I refuse to believe Kal died! This is my favorite fix-it fic, featuring Tali and Kal showing their bare faces to each other for the first time on Rannoch. This is so lovely and tender and just. FEEEEEEEEELINGS. SO MANY FEEEEEEEEEEEELINGSSSS. SOB

Why This Must Be Read: This was so. flipping. cute. Tali and Garrus attempt to have sex but Garrus appears to be allergic to her disinfectant. Have you ever heard a Turian sneeze?? IT IS ADORABLE. THIS WHOLE THING IS SO ADORABLE.

Mods, I need pairing tags for Shepard/Joker Moreau, Shepard/James Vega, Tali'Zorah nar Rayya/Kal'Reeger and Tali'Zorah nar Rayya/Garrus Vakarian.

Elementary, 6 recs, Joan/Sherlock & Joan/Marcus

Fandom: Elementary

Why This Must Be Read: Words cannot express how much I love this series. It's a glorious slow burn and written with such perfect understanding of the characters. Not only is their relationship written well, but the cases are also interesting and the procedural parts dovetail nicely with the shippy stuff.

Why This Must Be Read: An alternate path Marcus could have taken after getting shot. I love the slow careful relationship that's building between Marcus and Joan, and the equally careful reconciliation between him and Sherlock, but above all, this is a story about Marcus and it's fantastic.

Mods, can I have a pairing tag for Joan Watson/Marcus Bell?
