Summary: post apocalypse or cyberpunk detective agenc

Review: The wold building in this fic packs a real wallop for its length. The fic is a casefic, so the backstory on all the characters is left purposely vague.

Part Noir novel, part post apocalyptic Virtual world, it makes for a dreamy and dark cocktail that will drag you under and not let you back up for air until it's finished.

Summary: He watched Cap—Rogers—take in the gleaming armour on the floor, the outfit Tony had on, and the utilitarian but still fairly sophisticated interior of the medical bay. Watched as consternation gave way to creeping dread. “How long?” he asked, after a long moment. He sounded hoarse and far off. “Have we won?”
The door slammed open and both of them jumped. Tony put a hand tentatively on Cap’s wrist. Cap looked at him, watchful, but more trusting than Tony deserved. He tried to keep his voice steady.
“We won,” he said. “We won seventy years ago. My name’s Tony Stark. I’m Howard’s son.”

Review: How much do I love fics that actually address PTSD? A Ton. As you've probably noticed by this point in reading the fics I've recced.

This is Steve Rogers fresh out of the ice and terribly wounded by the war. Mixed with a Tony Stark who just recently became Iron Man.Two men walking the path of trauma recovery and helping each other along the way.

Despite my raptures about PTSD, it is really the way that this fic is written completely without the over the top villainy that you see in the movies. Yes they are superheros who are out saving the world, but they are also regular people living their lives.

It is fairly short but definitely worth a watch.

Summary: When their attempts to recreate the super soldier serum failed, Hydra started trying to breed Captain America clones from his genetic samples. Unfortunately, the serum's effects aren't passed down genetically, so instead of an army of tiny Captain Americas, they get a bunch of tow-headed, asthmatic, allergic, immuno-compromised little Steves.

And then the Winter Soldier stumbles across Hydra's failed experiment...

Review: Baby Steve Roger clones and actual realistic PTSD issues, What more could a girl want?

Neery did a great job with this fic. I read the whole thing in a night. Each of the Clones has their own interests, issues, and personalities. Something that is amazing in a fic about a bunch kids, much less a bunch of clones.

I love Bucky in this. He's so in fully rendered and his thought processes are so right for somebody dealing with past imprisonment and brain washing. And to see him deal with raising a bunch of tiny Stevens is just too cute!

Summary: This video is an M.A.P. (Multi Animator/Artist Project) done in honor of Alex Hirsch's wonderful cartoon, Gravity Falls! 30+ incredibly skilled people all came together to bring this video to you over the course of four months, so leaving a like, fave, and comment really lets us all know you appreciate our effort!

Review: This is an interesting collab from a large number of different artists. Each of the different lines of the song are used to represent a different episode in the Gravity Fall's series.

Each of the episodes is illustrated by different artists. If you are familiar with the episodes, it is definitely neet to see them visually summarized.

As well as to see the different parts of the series that each of the collaborators wanted to highlight.

Summary: This is simultaneously a tribute to my favourite movie of the year and a nod to my favourite band and one of my favourite music videos of all time.
I know many of my old MCR era friends loved the movie as much as I did and it inevitably reminded them of Danger Days as well, so if any of them are reading this, know that I thought of you and the times we had on tour a lot while making this vid. ♥

Review: The Epic mashup between two post-apocalyptic desert and car themed fandoms.

Violace did a great job matching up elements of the movie with elements of the song. I particularly love how they wove in the drum beats of the song with drum beats of the movie.

A fun vid to get your blood pumping.

Summary: Either a dark prediction or an alternate timeline, all depending on when you watch this! Please support the amazing artist that let me/help me make this video!

Review: Lyric Comics are big in the Gravity Falls fandom. And I admit to a softspot for the medium.

They are basically comics/pictures, set to music with lyrics as the narrative to pull you through the story.

The art here is a nice call back to the original art in the series. And the narrative takes you through the events of the first half of the second season.

Definitely worth a watch if you are a fan of the series, I'm not sure how easy it would be to follow if you weren't familiar to begin with.

Summary: Not as grey as it seems. A post-apocalyptic postal service AU.

Review: This fic takes place in an atmospheric post-apocalyptic world that has stuck with me for a long time.

The language is gorgeous and every scene is rendered in loving detail.

Even if you aren't familiar with the My Chemical Romance fandom you will be able to enjoy this fic.

Summary: There's a dingo hanging around The Citadel at night and, when Furiosa befriends the dingo, she notices a few odd coincidences involving the dingo, which she names Max, and another Max quite dear to her.

And then a new threat appears.

Review: Max makes such a cute were-creature! The story is nice and straightforward which is in-keeping with the feel of the movie.

It allows us to get to know Max better and it's nice to see him getting a happier ending.

The fic also has an interesting take on lycanthropy. I can't say much more without giving anything away. But this is definitely worth a read if you like modernized Supernatural worlds.

Shelter Me Series by ThingswithWings (Nc17)

Title: Shelter Me Series
Fandom: Leverage
Pairing: Parker/Eliot Spencer/Alec Hardison
Categories: Action Adventure, Friendship, First Time, Hurt/Comfort
Length: Long (20k)
Warnings: Off screen torture

Author on LJ: http://thingswithwings.dreamwidth.org/
Website: Ao3

Summary: Eliot's their hitter, and taking on any physical threats to the team is his job, but there's something beyond professionalism – even beyond the obvious fact that Eliot relishes the fight itself – in the way he puts his body between Parker or Alec and any potential threat. Alec has a good view of Eliot's back on a lot of jobs, and he reads something in the tight line of Eliot's shoulder, in the slow turn of his foot as he steps into a fighting stance.

Something possessive.

Review: This is an interesting take on both a post-canon fic and a fic for our favorite trio of thieves to get together.

Even though the fic is narrated from Alec's POV, it is very much centered around Eliot and his changing role in the team. I'm glad to see it after the recklessness that was shown in the Rundown Job, our only Canon evidence of how a team of just Eliot, Alec, and Parker would function.

The romance is nice and slow building, and different enough to feel right for people who see the world as differently as Parker and Eliot seem to. The first fic covers their getting together.

The second fic in the series is kink heavy so make sure you read the tags

Categories: AU, Domestic, Hurt/Comfort, Romance,
Length: Epic (77k)
Warnings: Rape, Dubious Consent

Author on LJ: gingersnapwolves.tumblr.com
Website: Ao3

Summary: Stiles hates being left behind with Peter while the pack is fighting monsters, because he never knows exactly what Peter will get up to.

Review: This is not my usual rec, there is graphic rape in this. Read with caution. The main relationship starts out somewhat triggery as well.

I don't usually read or rec anything that is this triggery, but KouriArashi is one of my favorite authors and I enjoy Peter/Stiles and their respective snark so I decided to give the fic a try.

I am very glad I did. Despite their relationship's rocky start. Peter and Stile's manage to put together one of the most mutually respecting relationships that I have read. They push each others boundaries, they make mistakes, they are intentionally mean to each other, but that is what makes their relationship what it is. It is so nice to see amoral people getting a realistic relationship of mutual support. Instead of just two people using each other.

tdlr: Read the warnings, and feel free to skip both chapters 8 and 9 if you want to give the fic a try anyway. The first seven chapters can stand alone.

Summary: Peter is a Deaf werewolf. Stiles is a CODA (Child of a Deaf Adult). They’re a kind of unlikely pair. But sometimes things you wouldn’t think of as a good combination, end up turning out to be the perfect combination, you know?

Review: A fic that actually uses ASL!!!!

The author includes a glossary of ways that they indicate for signs and uses them throughout the fic, instead of just indicating a sign was used.

The story is short and sweet, with nice, realistic character interactions. I particularly appreciated being able to see how Stile way of dealing with Peter changed over the course of the story so that his and Peters's eventual romance felt organic.

A Shot in the Dark by Silverpup (R)

Pairing: Bilbo Baggins/Thorin Okenshield
Categories: AU, Hurt/Comfort, Time Travel
Length: Super-Epic (213K)
Warnings: Character Typical Violence

Author on LJ: n/a

Summary: When he opens his eyes again, he finds himself in his old bed in his old home in his old body. Is this death? Or a trick of magic? Either way, Bilbo recognizes a second chance when he sees one, and this time his adventure with Thorin is going to go a bit differently.

Review: This fic ate my soul. I couldn't put it down for around three days straight.

The Characterization is spot on, and while I've read a lot of going back in time to fix the past fics, I was really impressed by how Silver_pup changed not only Bibo's behavior but that of all the secondary characters as well.

The same events happened, but Bilbo's chanced behavior and outlook had some unexpected effects, even to Bilbo. I can't say much more without messing up the lovely twists and turns Silver_pup works in, but if you are looking for an epic, with a lot of personal character growth and suspense then this might be the fic for you.

There are some spoilers for both the Hobbit and LOTR so read with caution if this is your first time reading in the hobbit fandom.

Summary: Raleigh Becket is stuck with an apartment that's too expensive for him to pay for by himself, a severe lack of stable employees, and a complete lack of control over his life. Luckily, he meets Mako Mori, an engineering student who is starting school in a week and has found herself homeless and broke as a result of apartment fraud.

This is the story of their adventures. It includes Mako being 100% badass, Yancy taking stupid selfies of himself, Russians flying helicopters, and Raleigh *continuing* to have a complete and utter lack of control over his life.

tl;dr: Coffeeshop!AU where Mako Mori is a flawless human being, and nothing hurts.

Review: This is a sweet story where Raleigh and Mako end up helping each other out of a series of bad days.

There isn't a lot of tension to the story, but that is kind of the point. It is a short, light fic that will leave you with a smile.

Summary: For Throwback Thursday I dusted off an old ficlet request fill I started back in 2012 when an anon asked for a How to Train Your Dragon AU. This isn’t quite that, but there is a dragon. (And a happy ending!) It’s ultimately Derek/Stiles but mostly Derek/Original Dragon Character, and is for general audiences. Hope you like it anyway. :D

Review: Hilarious and fast paced, this fic reminds me of Patricia Wrede's Dragon series.

Derek gets kidnapped by a teenage dragon who is convinced he is her princess. It follows his amusing attempts to survive on various stolen baskets of food and clothing.

Even if you are only minorly connected to Teen Wolf canon, so even if you aren't very familiar with the fandom this might be a nice, fun romp to spend a half-hour on.

Summary: The Winter Soldier and Tony Stark have run into each other many times over the years and, despite the brainwashing and the memory wipes, something about the genius just seems so familiar. It kind of makes the Soldier want to keep him safe.

Review: This is a fast moving alternate origin story for Iron Man that includes a multitude of great concepts.

I love protective Peggy Carter and the Howling Commandos, and the chance to see how things would changed if the Iron Man movie had been created taking the events of Captain America into consideration.

Also Tony meeting Bucky for the first time and informing him that he is being followed around by baby ducks.

Summary: After Pete's summer at boot camp, Pete's parents move their family to New Jersey, where Pete meets Gabe Saporta and Gabe's dad. Contains on-screen panic attacks, discussion and descriptions of child abuse, references to child sexual abuse, dysfunctional family dynamics, teenagers exploring their sexuality (mentally and emotionally, not sexually). Upbeat ending with the implication of happy lives. Co-authored with lalejandra.

Review: This fic is primarily comfort, following Pete's period in Bootcamp. Still make sure you read the warnings first.

This is a touching take on highschool AUs. Pete is the new student at Gabe's school and Gabe finds himself helping Pete not only with school, but with dealing with his trauma.

InlovewithNight does a great job fully fleshing out ever character in the story, even the side characters. Despite its serious premise the story is ultimately very sweet.

Summary: The fact that she was still a little annoyed with him for the “I’m closer to a dog than you” quip might have informed what she did next.

She patted the warm cement next to her, and said, in the firm tone she’d heard animal trainers use:

“Caine, sit.”

[Pretty much what it says on the tin. Jupiter Jones and Caine Wise figure each other out, post-canon. Basically my exploration of their relationship and where it might lead. EDIT: Now COMPLETE! Enjoy the sex and plot and wacky OCs!]

Review: A lot of kinky sex, with lots of interesting world building, and relationship building along the way.

Octosally has a deft hand with weaving together long, intricate sex scenes with character building experiences. Jupiter experiences the complications of universe sized business inheritance while trying discover what it means to be queen of the earth and Caine's mistress.
