For those who know how much I've been freaking out about not knowing who wrote this: turns out it was [ profile] srin/[ profile] mad_poetics. She reposted it here.

So yeah, turns out I already did know and love her fics :D

This can't wait until the next batch because I'm still feeling all dizzy and blissfully happy and I just need to rec this NOW.

'All in the timing' by Anonymous (5,700 words, AU, Arthur/Merlin, NC-17)
I don't want to say too much about this fic, just that it hit a couple of my kinks (some of which are a bit embarrassing actually) so very hard. Ok, I have a kink for age-difference, adolescents exploring their sexuality and losing their virginity with someone patient who really cares for them. Also the combination of one being very seductive and the other trying very hard to 'do the right thing' and resist does something very interesting for me. I really gasped my way through this fic in utter delight of getting so exactly what I didn't even ask for (because I wasn't the one who came up with the prompt.

[edit] Turns out it was [ profile] srin/[ profile] mad_poetics. She reposted it here.

Last Sunday I went to see the movie with my daughter and youngest son and we were all three delighted; that was an awesome cinema experience! Absolutely something to go see in a theater and not wait for the dvd.

I've started looking for fics, which proved to be difficult because I hardly know any of the writers or the reccers in this fandom and I'm not even sure what exactly I'm looking for. What attracts me most in the movie is actually the way the team grows and all the different bonds that are getting tighter. So here's a hap-hazard list of things I've been enjoying for totally different reasons and some links to rec-lists I've found useful to get me going.

A vid

'Circus' by [personal profile] butterfly
Kirk centric vid, set to a Britney Spears song. Yes I know, watch it anyway, and make sure to watch the download, because the quality is so much better than the streaming files and it's so worth it! Makes me want to dance around the room and then run to the theater to go watch the movie again.


'The birth of slash' by [ profile] eggblue (250 words, Kirk/Spock and Uhura, R)
Uhura gets off on watching Kirk and Spock get it on. More like 'The birth of a slasher'. Fast, hot and funny in a 'oh my god, that's us...' kind of way.

'Just lie back and think of the federation' by [ profile] ifyouweremine (1,300 words, Kirk/Spock, NC-17)
An 'aliens make them do it' fic, but not in a traumatizing way. Silly, snarky and dirty.

'An unorthodox approach' by [ profile] spocktacular (850 words, Spock/Uhura, PG)
Student Uhura approaches teacher Spock and it takes quite some hinting for him to get what she trying to get across. Sweet and thrilling.

'Destiny' by [ profile] gigitrack (1,700 words, Spock/Uhura, Kirk/Spock UST, G)
The growing bond between Kirk and Spock as seen through Uhura's eyes. Painful and subtle, with lovely characterizations.

'To the best of my recollection' by [ profile] svilleficrecs (3,400 words, Kirk/Spock, R)
Spock helps Kirk when he's got trouble with the after-effects of the mind-meld that future-Spock performed on him. Kirk is not happy with the result. I love the concern each feels and shows for the other. A warm and thoughtful fic.

'Nature, structure, variation of' by [ profile] anowlinsunshine (1,500 words, Kirk/Spock, NC-17)
Kirk and Spock having sex in the Captain's chair. Kirk talking dirty and Spock trying to find logic in wanting this. Very satisfying PWP.

'Taking the slower path (we'll get there in the end)' by [ profile] black_eyedgirl (7,400 words, Spock/Uhura, Kirk/Spock pre-slash, PG-13 for violence and angst)
Exactly the kind of fic I was looking for; a team fic, focusing on the growing friendship between Kirk and Spock. Lovely slow build.


[personal profile] butterfly over here, here and here.
Lots of recs with a short but helpful description, different ratings, genres and/or pairings but especially a lot of Kirk/Spock.

[ profile] beachan18 over here.
Long and clear list of recs, different ratings, genres and/or pairings. New recs are marked as such. Includes a convenient list of kink meme fics.

[ profile] melloniel over here.
Kirk/McCoy recs and some Chris/Zachary rps. Haven't checked those out myself, because those pairings aren't my thing, but I love her SGA recs so I'm sure what she's pointing out here is of the same quality.

rodneyscat: (merlin and arthur)
Today I gobbled up [ profile] srin's Merlin fics. They're delicious and nutritious; not too sweet, with a healthy dash of humor, some very moving moments that had me blink away tears, some thinky thoughts and sexy scenes ranging from butterflies-in-stomach cute to sizzling hot.

'Underdeveloped instinct' (3,400 words, Arthur/Merlin, PG)
In which Arthur gets very upset about the way in which Merlin is way too careless in risking his life for him, it takes them both a while to figure out why this is making him so angry and then they proceed to get drunk and comfortable with each other.

'On swefnum, incuthra eorthan' (1,300 words, Gwen/Morgana, PG)
Morgana's visions are confusing, disturbing, often upsetting and it never ends well for her and hardly ever for Gwen, no matter what happens to the others. Some of the visions and her ponderings on what's real and what is not made me snicker. Others were a punch in the gut and made me wish desperately for a more deserving ending than it usually goes in the Arthurian legends for these two women.

'The future, and what’s in between' (4,300 words, Arthur/Merlin, PG-13)
An unexpected encounter makes it that Merlin starts fearing the future so much that he doesn't know what to do with himself anymore. Arthur talks him into seeing the bright side again and figures out a way to make Merlin unwind.

'Knowing and nobility' (6,800 words, Arthur/Merlin, PG-13)
Her characterizations of Arthur and Merlin both are exactly the way I love them most, with Arthur so aware of his responsibilities and Merlin so devoted to the man but unimpressed by his station. And it's got giggles and moaning in bed, which (as some of you may have noticed *shifty eyes*) is one of my favorite things ever.

'Force of nature' (3,600 words, Arthur/Merlin, NC-17)
Merlin’s a magical creature who goes into heat, and subsequently has a great deal of sex with Arthur. Well, that pretty much sums it up. I want to add though that I love that she manages to make it all consensual. Also, it's freaking hot *writhes*

'Mcgyffen' (5,400 words, Arthur/Merlin, PG)
This was the fic that made me search for more by the same author: Cracktastic, moving, fun and sweet. It's got it all.

'Virginal' by [ profile] kaneko (Arthur/Merlin, NC-17)
A ficlet written for the porn battle IV. Arthur both teasing and considerate and Merlin all spread out and eager... Ah, Arthur says it best when he says 'Look at you'.

'Be resigned' part 7/? by [ profile] franticsga (AU, Arthur/Merlin, WIP, R this part)
The other parts are linked at the top of this chapter. Modern day Arthur and Merlin serve for the US army in Iraq, and it's the kind of series I never thought I'd enjoy as much as I do. Checking Franticsga's journal for a new chapter is part of my daily routine.
It's interesting and moving, it really makes me feel the close friendship growing between these two and the sexual tension is almost unbearable but also delicious.

Merlin RPF

'The lessons of Murphy' by [ profile] franticsga (Bradley/Colin, PG)
Bradley used to have a cat Murphy he loved to bits, but it took some time for him to figure this cat out and make Murphy love him back. Now, years later with Colin, history repeats itself. Utterly adorable.

'Car sans toi il n’y a pas de chanson' by [ profile] paperclipbitch (Angel/Bradley, PG-13)
This had me smiling and giggling all the way through; with all its hilarious moments it's an insanely sweet fic.

And here are three caps from one of the extras on the second dvd-set of 'Merlin' )

1) Dude, why can't I just stick to one fandom?

2) Specifically on the fanvids: I'm linking some I've had on one of my YouTube playlists for a long time, because when I checked this morning so many of them have been removed for different reasons, that I felt compelled to point some out before they get removed also. These are vids I love watching, for different reasons. It can be a technically brilliant vid, or a brilliant idea, or the music-choice did something for me, or all of the above.
