Fandom: Smallville
Pairing: Clark / Lex
Author: Alax and Dana
Author's LJ shaggirl
Author's email: shaggirl@livejournal.com
Author's web page:

Why I loved this: This is fluff. It's fun silly, romantic AU fluff. In this story Clark is a very pretty woman who needs $20k to save his widowed mother from eviction. What's a boy to do? Use his super powers to find buried treasure? His strength to press coal into diamonds? No, of course not! The only answer is to sell his virgin ass to a very rich buyer. OK so it's silly, the premise requires a certain suspension of disbelief, but it’s Smallville. We already have a teenage gay alien rescuing people while wearing bright read underwear outside of his tights. One more little step ain’t going to hurt, and this story is worth it. Because besides contributing to the sorely under stocked category of Hooker!Clark fics this has a fun, adventurous story to it. There's angst, drama a nasty bad guy and sex. Pretty hot sex. So warm up some mulled wine and cosy up to this fic, it's worth the evening -

Why I loved this: Curse you bubosquared, for you have corrupted me!
Every so often you find something that trancends fanfic. This is one of those. You don't need to be a fan of the show - hell you don't even need to watch the show - to enjoy this story. This is a walk on a darker side, those "what ifs?" that nag the back of your mind as characters jump those suspension of disbelief hurdles with the ease of; "Oh, you're an alien? Cool, lets fuck". Because what if those hurdles weren't so lightly jumped, what if there were questions and wrong answers and what if there was more. This fic will haunt you days later. You can hate me then for prodding you to read it.

Dark Leaf - Jastaelf
Fandom: LotR
Pairing: hm... several, I guess...
Author: Jastaelf
Author's LJ jastaelf
Author's email: jastaelf@hotmail.com
Author's web page: http://jastaelf.tripod.com/royalmirkwood/index.html

Why I loved this

This is a rec celebrating a long expected update I almost gave up on.
The last chapter was posted a year ago or something.

Dark Leaf is the mother of all Legolas torture fic (literally?)
But it's not your average Leggyrapefic. It's Tolkien fanfiction, no less *g*.

The 'prequel' Leaf and Branch (PG) is a story of how little Legolas is kidnapped by orcs. We get a feeling it's Elrond/ Leggy pre-slash, but it's not chan :P

Dark Leaf (Nc-17) is not exactly a sequel, but a what if? of her own fic. What if they had been too late!?!?
Incredible amounts of angst and awful things ensue, and poor, poor Legolas suffers badly.
However, it's a great story with wonderful characters; and her nancing-elves-free fic has got more of a Tolkienesque air than most. *g*. It's worth reading for that alone, the Elves (not those fanonised umpteenth generation copies...)

Hopefully the warnings won't scare anyone away. This is one of the best Tolkien fics imo.
One could always read the very sweet and happy ending Leaf and Branch, and then decide whether to move on to Dark Leaf... :P

Chapter 16 is posted in her Yahoogroup It will be posted on her homepage soon.
(But the first chapters are not there, so the link goes to another archive.)

(A couple of shorter fic by her can be found at ff.net.)

Fandom: LotR
Pairing: several
Author: Deanna
Author's LJ sweetsorcery
Author's email: NA
Author's web page: http://www.geocities.com/sweetsorcery/stories.html

Why I loved this etc
This is an 'early' and influencial LotR author. Her fic tends towards the elegant PWP *g*

I've found several of these irritating expressions overused by the fandom in her fic; but here they are in a meaninfgul setting - I suspect they were 'borrowed' and recycled into the cliches they are now ...
Facing Legolas, Haldir stood like an elven statue - his tunic in a pale blue pool around his bare feet, his legs still encased in dark velvet, his upper body glistening in the night... he was pure temptation.
Could be a quote from any badfic? (Only better worded...) No, it's from
Whispers in the Water Legolas/Haldir [NC-17] h/c
A 'magical' story of healing in Lorien, during the fellowship's stay. Beach sex, Lothlorien style *g*.
"You enchant me, my Prince," Elrond said breathlessly. He lifted the slender hand still in his grasp and touched his lips to it. His heart began to pound fiercely when he heard Legolas' sharp intake of breath.
This is irresistably silly and far from as clumsy as some elves who are understandably swept off their feet:
The Grace of Elves followed by
To catch a falling Star Elrond/Legolas [NC-17]

Make the World disappear [NC-17] The first Boromir/Faramir that sucked me in. Angsty and romantic and no wonder they all but explode in the end. I'm not quite sure why this is so sexy, but it sure is.
(Adoring Eyes independent companion piece that might be read first.)

I thought there was no point making a separate post for each of these - and I think her other fic is worth reading as well, btw. It's well written and doesn't fall into those usual traps we are so familiar with *g*.

(The reason I thought to rec this now is that there's a new Boromir/Faramir novella The Curse of Anira. I haven't read it yet, but I'm reccing it unseen *g*)

Unspoken Arc - Runedancer
Fandom: LotR
Pairing: numerous elves
Author: Runedancer
Author's LJ runedancer
Author's email: NA
Author's web page: http://www.fanfiction.net/profile.php?userid=325202

Why I loved this:
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then much of the Elf fandom must adore this fic. I know I do - it's a wonderful rolling tale of the elves in Imladris getting up to hijinx as they discover romance. There are several great 'true love' pairings here. Each one works because they are different, the obsticals they face are original with enough angst to keep this moving at a decent clip. It's long - several novel lengths. Perfect for a rainy Sunday

Of Elves and Aphrodisiacs - Tricia
Fandom: LotR Elves / Men
Pairing: Haldir / Legolas / Boromir
Author: Tricia

Author's guestbook: http://www.htmlgear.tripod.com/guest/control.guest?u=fitzkotlr&i=4&a=view
Author's web page: http://www.lureofthering.com/index.html

Why I loved this:
Another aphrodisiac fic, I do love these. This semi non con romp in the woods was, according to the author, begun as a writing exercise in smut. The sex stays fresh and hot, a difficult task in a four chapter PWP. This is a Wicked Marchwarden tale - those who love a selfish!Haldir will love this.

So Wrong
Fandom: LotR
Pairing: Sean B. / Suprise
Author: Cruel Illusion
Author's LJ cruel_illusion
Author's email: cruel_illusion @ livejournal.com
Author's web page: NA

Why I loved this:
I think I entered the fandom backwards. The first fanfic I read was all RPS, it was only later that I discovered FPS. I also think I was blessed in that the pieces I read were just so damn good. This one was one of my firsts and a all time favorite. Sean is just so wonderfully tortured in this, the images are delish and the twist, just yummy all over.

Warning: bondage, slavery, rough sex, angst, hurt/comfort

Why I loved this:
I'm a sucker for a good aphrodisiac fic. This one is one of my favorites. Dark, non consensual need at it's best, with the players fully aware that they really don't want this and yet unable to stop themselves.

The Shut Up series

Author's LJ vivianedesblanc and NA
Author's email: vivianedesblanc@spatulaproductions.net
Author's web page: http://www.ravenswing.com/~keelywolfe/vivi.html

Why I loved this:
Somewhere on the opposite side of the Elijah BDSM fanfic continium from convergence (and no, I can't believe I actually wrote that sentence either) the Shut Up's are equally strong. These funny, wonderfully constructed, and hot-as-hell vignettes are half Dick and Jane discover bondage and half I love Lucy, but pure smutty joy.

msilverstar turned be onto this - kicking and screaming I might add. I do not like Hobbits! I said. I do not like them on the stairs! I do not like them in the Air! I do not like them here or there! I do not like them anywhere!
Well *erm* meet the fic that made a liar of me.
This fiction is just, well, this is what most fanfic aspires to be when it grows up. There simply are no words. I know, I know, ickles Hobbits. karamarie_mckay, you're undoubtably wondering if there's a pod in my basement. Well, there might be. If aliens have stolen my soul this fic makes it worth it.

Tennessee & Burn - Meg rec
Fandom: LotR

Author: Cimorene
Author's email: cimorene@operamail.com <cimorene@operamail.com>
Author's web page: NA

Why I loved this:
Since I was on the topic of pairings you think you'll hate. It's Viggorli and Sean/ Elijah :P
I still remember it more than two years later, that's got to mean something. I think I liked the unspoken things and the descriptive language - and the sentimental angst. *g

Warnings: Mpreg

Why I loved this:
Somewhere in the Chrystalwank I ended up on a journal where someone recced a Domlijah non-humour mpreg that I felt compelled to read since that was just too wrong to resist. It had kind of a 'Big' premise - quite an accomplishment *g*.

Author's web page: N/A

Why I loved this:
Actually, maybe I'm now looking for unusual (for me?) pairings - and thoroughly enjoy it when people can win me over by something I don't initially expect to be 'hot'.
So I liked this Viggorli precisely since I don't read Viggorli, and it was good. (Although I'm not convinced by Overthinking!Viggo and his Whole-of-the-moon!Orli - but it's fiction, you know, and who knows.)

Why I loved this:
I liked her LotR fic, and now her Black Hawk Down series, though I have no intention of seeing the film. It's the smut effective writing style that I enjoy. (I smile every time she transports people from A to B with the minimal amount of words *g*. )

Ok, so i'll just c&p this first, ok?

A couple of fairly recent fic I remember enjoying:
(Not very controversial, I'm afraid, so chances are you've seen it :P)

Actually, maybe I'm now looking for unusual (for me?) pairings - and thoroughly enjoy it when people can win me over by something I don't initially expect to be 'hot'.

So I liked this Viggorli: Hum/Lo by rowan& - precisely since I don't read Viggorli, and it was good. (Although I'm not convinced by Overthinking!Viggo and his Whole-of-the-moon!Orli - but it's fiction, you know, and who knows.)

Somewhere in the Chrystalwank I ended up on a journal where someone recced a Domlijah non-humour mpreg that I felt compelled to read since that was just too wrong to resist. It had kind of a 'Big' premise - quite an accomplishment *g*. But I can't remember who and where now.

ETA: I found it: You Say That Like It's A Bad Thing

And I'll throw in an old fic: Tennessee - in the mountains & chattanooga and the sequel Burn - ashes & catch fire with day by Cimorene. Since I was on the topic of pairings you think you'll hate. It's Viggorli and Sean/ Elijah :P
I still remember it more than two years later, that's got to mean something. I think I liked the unspoken things and the descriptive language - and the sentimental angst. *g*

Sworn
Fandom: Origific
Author: Maureen Lycaon
Author's LJ: maureenlycaon
Author's web page: http://members.vclart.net/Maureen/index2.html
Warnings: MDom/m Semi-con, S&M, Bondage, teasing oral, humiliation, torture
**WIP**

Why I loved this:
Sworn hits all my buttons. The AU is a mix of scifi and historical drama that works well, the characters are engaging and even amusing at times, but the real pleasure of this story is to read the conflict and pain as the protagonist is taught to lust for what his culture, his pride, and his clan despises. With hot sex, of course. Lord Micheal's mindfuck is creative, cruel, and wonderfully devious.

Blood moon and Mithril
Fandom: LotR, elves
Pairing: Haldir / Legolas
Author: Camilla
Author's lj: camillaspace
Author's website: http://www.angelfire.com/rebellion/camilla/LotrCam.html

Why I love it:
This often immitated fic has to go down as one of my all time favorite Efl storys. Camilla retells the events from various perspectives, allowing the reader to see the misunderstandings, the missed oppertunities, and feel completely frustrated as Haldir and Legolas fumble through fate. There is a feeling of inevitability here, it is movie verse, and is quite a tear jerker. In a good way.

Fandom: LotR, elves
Pairing: Glorfindel / Ecthelion
Author: tehta
Author's webpage http://www.fanfiction.net/profile.php?userid=527195

Why I love it:
This is a wonderfully characterized piece that appeals to both the erotic reader and the canon whore. The banter is delicious, Ecthelion is the perfect in denial elf with Glorfindel as his over-heated foil. The smut is handled delicatly and yet manages to be hot. It has it all: romance, canon and a bit of swashbuckling adventure.
