Multiple Kenzi/Dyson recs from "Lost Girl".

Recs and visual illustrations behind the cut!

Had to do it, guys. Aren't they pretty?



Fandom Category: Lost Girl
Pairing: Kenzi/Dyson
Fic Title: Wolf Hunt & Will You Offer Your Throat
Author: tres_mechante
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/241041
http://archiveofourown.org/works/242536
Rating/Warning(s): R-ish, Violence.
Genre: Friendship, angst, AU, supernatural, episode-tag (season 1.)
WIP?: Both are complete.
Why This Must Be Read: To me, even the very idea of this pairing grows out of the strangely intimate friendship Kenzi and Dyson have patched together. These two stories do a great little intro to the pairing in that they're both based very firmly in the friendship Kenzi and Dyson share, and that everything else grows from that. I also have a huge weakness for the idea of wolf-loyalty, and I love how these two play with that.

Pairing: Kenzi/Dyson
Fic Title: What's Done is Done
Author: Someone Else's Dream
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/285100
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17/M, external dub-con for the situation, not the sexytimes?
Genre: Angst, Romance, AU, supernatural.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: Now, I'll admit that Lost Girl is absolutely not the show for everyone. Especially because it very much plays with the idea of degrees of consent and permission, especially when it comes to sex and ownership. The mythology of the Fae in the show has some pet/slavery stuff going on, and this story grows out of that aspect of the show. This story grows out of that aspect of the show, but as dire as I just made it sound, this is an interesting possibility for a relationship catalyst for Kenzi and Dyson. And one that reads very much in-character on both sides. The writing is smart and tonally pitch-perfect for the show and the characters.

Fic Title: Nobody Sees (Nobody Cares)
Author: Someone Else's Dream
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/319764
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, Magic Made Them Do It
Genre: Friendship, Romance, AU
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: I love this story. To me, this pairing is all about potential, and a little spark could totally set it on fire. This is short, but lovely, and wonderfully in-character. Especially Kenzi's reaction at the end. And I love that I BUY Dyson's reaction (HEE!) because of Kenzi and how she opens him up in ways not many others do or can.

Fic Title: Apparently Probably Definitely
Author: Southerncross
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/485524
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13? External dub/con? Magic Will Make Them Do It
Genre: Friendship, post-episode tag, supernatural.
WIP?: Complete!

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, so some fairly heavy stuff goes down between Dyson and Kenzi at the end of season 2. This is a possible reaction to the season finale, and one that's funny and completely possible. Although, I think the thing I love most about this is how hilarious Hale finds the whole situation, as well as Kenzi's innate practicality. I love Kenzi to bits because she's so practical about her world. She takes it as it is, rolls with it, and does the best she can with the life she's been handed. This is the epitome of that characterization for me, and works brilliantly within the space of the story.

Fic Title: Five Times Dyson protected Kenzi – and the one time she saved his ass
Author: irishcookie/irishcookie
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7423306/1/Five-times
Rating/Warning(s): PG, spoilers for season 1.
Genre: Friendship, episode-tag, romance, AU.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: I like this a lot because it illustrates and adds to Kenzi and Dyson's interactions during the series, as well as does a little touch of AU for season 2. But it's little moments - and honestly, that's what the basis of Kenzi and Dyson are... little moments - that are both quiet and small, and very much not quiet or small at the same time. Also, definitely check out the author's other work.

Fic Title: Certainty
Author: TheCivilState
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7966117/1/Certainty
Rating/Warning(s): PG, spoilers for season 2.
Genre: Friendship, angst, romance, episode-tag.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a nice little, bittersweet capper to the series finale. I like that the ending is ambiguous and that there aren't certain answers one way or another. But there's hope and potential in the bittersweet. Plus, I love that Kenzi's upfront about her feelings and isn't shat on for it.

Fandom Category: Lost Girl
Pairing: Kenzi/Dyson
Fic Title: Tag Team
Author: Diana Crescent
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8035660/1/Tag-Team
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17/M, violence.
Genre: Adventure, Angst, Romance, Friendship, Camping.
WIP?: Complete!

Why This Must Be Read: It's wonderfully cracky (Dyson and Kenzi go camping for a team-building exercise), full of action, and Kenzi's voice is just wonderful. I love this a lot because it's got Kenzi and Dyson working their way into talking about their shit, and kicking ass at the same time. I also LOVE Competent!Practical!Kenzi, and this is absolutely chuck full of her. Just a fun, silly romp with sexytimes.

Fic Title: The Devil In Me
Author: venkaskribbles
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8452452/1/The-Devil-In-Me
Rating/Warning(s): Hard R/M, spoilers for season 2, violence, dubcon (not sexytimes, body possession).
Genre: Adventure, supernatural, angst, AU, friendship, romance.
WIP?: Yes, but updated regularly!

Why This Must Be Read: Last but not least, we've got my favorite story in the fandom. It's plotty, moves well, and addresses the season finale in a really thoughtful and good way. This is a really engaging work, and I'm really curious to see where the author goes with the setup. Also, this thing just has moments of SUCH sexiness.
