FanFiction Friday: Take #1

Alright, it is no surprise that I love reading fanfic (no surprise). I go through phases where all I want to read is fanfic, and I ignore my books and find myself lagging behind. Less than two years ago I didn't know a freaking thing about fandoms, and that there were people writing about characters that I always felt should have been hooking up. So color me surprised, when I could read about Draco/Harry together +_+ DEAD, Edward/Jacob  Edward/Jasper +_+ +_+ +_+ EXTRA DEAD.

I was hooked, and a monster was created, it sort of went to the same tune as when I discovered M/M. Just with like book reading, there is the good, the bad, and the ugly. So I have read through the crap, and will post all my faves bi-weekly. So get ready for a whole lot of Sterek, JohnLock, and whichever peeps on tv I feel should be really bending each other over. Fehu also is getting in on the action and will be sharing some good fics she found.

Get ready, whether you love fanfic, interested but never read it, or just don't care to read it. I am gonna give you the goods. Enjoy!!


Sterek (Teen Wolf Fandom)

His Only Defence
4.5 Pants Off

Summary: Stiles had just accidentally challenged an alpha. Oh God and Scott had just stood by and let him do it. He was the worst best friend ever. Stiles was going to kill him. Except oh right the alpha was going to kill him first. Like beyond dead, ripped into tiny little pieces dead. So far dead that his dad would not be able to identify him, dead.

Thoughts: Absolutely excellent! I laughed so freaking hard at the summary, because if you've watched TW, this is so something Stiles would be thinking. It's sexy and just a whole lot of fun, Kudos to the author for writing such an awesome fic. Recommend

Alpha Spikes
4 Pants Off

Summary: AU. Alphas are like royalty and are offered their choice of any age eighteen-and-up virgin Omega for each year's heat season, as a 'thank-you' to all they've done for their compounds throughout the year. Derek is an Alpha and...yeah, Stiles. Stiles is an Omega. And still a virgin. In every way. And he's just turned eighteen. This...is not his day.

Thoughts: Another hilarious one, Stiles rock it. And well Derek...he's sexy in a fic, on TW, and breathing. I have a thing for wolves being all possessive, and yeh knotting.


The ETA From You To Me
4.5 Pants Off

Summary: In which Derek drives a tow truck and Stiles is the weekend dispatcher who attempts to woo him with his lack of a brain-to-mouth filter and affinity for run-on sentences.

Thoughts: Awesome, funny, and so freaking sweet. Stiles is so annoying in this one, and Derek drives a tow truck and works on cars and shit *nods head* greased up Derek is a good Derek. Writing spot on, and Stiles and his dad awesome. Recommend

JohnLock (Sherlock Fandom)

Performance In A Leading Role
5+++++ Pants Off

Summary: Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?

Thoughts: I think like every person in the Sherlock fandom has read this one, but if not...this is the fic to start with. The best fanfic I've ever read (seriously). The author did some excellent things with this one, I believe I cried, laughed, and lost my pants numerous of times. If you have watched cheekbones Benedict in Sherlock and wanna read about him and John getting it on (well look no further) go read this one. Recommend (Hugely)


My Phone is On Vibrate For You
4.5 Pants Off

Summary: Sherlock texts John all the time. Today’s different.

Thoughts: So much fun, and sexy as hell. This is texting at it's best and John dying from a heart attack (cus of a cheeky surprising Holmes).


Academic Eros
4 Pants Off

Summary: It's John's last year doing theory at university before he starts training in a hospital. But to get there, he first has to pass the infamous Dr Sherlock Holmes' Biochemistry paper ...

Thoughts: John's a student, Sherlock a professor (WIN). I really love this one, but am still waiting for an update because it's not completed (the downside of fanfic is sometimes waiting). Seriously, John is a student, and prof Sherlock gets in his pants.



Fehu's Picks

Merlin/Arthur (Fandon Merlin)

Arcane Asylum
Audio version: Link 
4 Pants Off

Summary: Modern AU. For the last twenty two years Uther Pendragon has been waging war on magic. Now his son Arthur has been framed for a magical crime and sent to the prison for magic users. Arthur is instantly targeted by the inmates, but mysterious top dog Merlin takes him under his wing. They form a bond, and Merlin decides to help Arthur clear his name.
(Warnings: non-con and dub-con, though it's brief and not M/A, violence, death of minor characters )

Thoughts: This story has some darker elements and there is a lot of angst, beware! Merlin and Arthur's characterization is done very well, they are not perfect and have lots of flaws. Merlin is not the happy guy we know from the series. The whole story doesn't make for a nice easy read, since a big part of it is set in a prison. Secrets are abound and of course it's especially hard for Arthur, who was framed, but all inmates know about his father and his crusade of magic, just in this book Merlin is not always there to protect him, from all the evil wizards. It's a page turner, the suspense is high, like the stakes for the characters and the plot is very interesting, as are the characters. My only complain were the flashbacks,but there is only a few.

Drastically Redefining Protocol
Audio version: Link 
Summary: In which Prince Arthur meets Merlin and all hell promptly breaks lose.
Thoughts: One of the best podfics in this fandom, AU. Merlin is a doctor, Arthur is a prince and after a less than stellar meeting, they still manage to annoy each other, but now they are benefits, if you know what I mean, sadly there are also paparazzi. Mostly this is a rom-com, with some angst, oh and Merlin still has his magic! Uther is less than pleased, but really who cares? ^_^
