Summary:
What if someone decided to stick up for Blair after his press conference?

Review:
Here comes a nice "What if" fic proposing an alternate ending to the last episode of the show.
Shedoc, as many authors in the fandom, manages what TV show writers didn't and find a solution for Blair to receive his diploma. The author goes then further, as Blair gets a true job.
What's really nice here is how Jim and Blair relationship develops. Both of them are competent adults, and while their relationship is highly symbiotic, they are not unable to live without being together 24/7.
The canon characters are well used and most of her originals ones are well crafted. However I did found their names a bit jarring as they are directly inspired by 'the Lion King'.

Summary:
A disaster brings out the pure sentinel in Jim, much to Blair's dismay.


Review :
Here is one of my favorite fic in this fandom.
I can't say exactly when this fic takes place but Jim and Blair are sure of themselves and of their friendship. Their time of incertitudes and doubts seem far away. And while neither Jim nor Blair exactly knows what's happening Jim trusts in Blair and accept his help.

I love the way the whole police department shines in this story. The way the characters act in the wake of a natural disaster of such a magnitude rings true.

Legion manages to show the utter destruction following a disaster but still instill hope and love all through the story.

Title: GUIDE ME: The Search for a Soulmate by rhiannohero
Fandom: The Sentinel
Pairing: Jim/Blair
Categories: AU, drama, angst
Length: Very long (~36,000 words)
Warnings: Alex is not evil

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] rhiannonhero 
Website: n/a

Review:
After a sensory spike during a hostage situation nearly gets someone killed, guide-less sentinel Jim is given an ultimatum: prove that he's actually looking for a guide or quit the force. And what better way to prove that he's making an effort than to do so on national television?

I have to admit, I don't watch reality television, so I'm probably getting less out of this fic than those who do. That said, this is great fun, with Blair being awesome and very in-character and Jim being denser than lead and, to quote Simon, "the least self-aware person on the planet". I do wish Jim had been a bit less so thickheaded, but fortunately he wises up eventually and makes up for it all with smoking sex. A fun, fast Sentinel fic.

Fandom: The Sentinel
Pairing: Blair/Jim
Categories: angst, AU, BDSM, dark, family, hurt/comfort, prostitute, discussion of slavery, first time male/male sex
Length: Super Epic (~144,000 words)
Warnings: discussion of rape, reliving of rape, PTSD, graphic BDSM, dub-con, some Naomi-bashing if you squint

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt

Review:
On Blair’s thirtieth birthday he does something impulsive. Something he may have never done if it hadn’t been for the fact that there’s a double motive for it now. He hires a prostitute to fulfill his wildest desires. Only instead of the dominatrix he was expecting, one Jim Ellison shows up at his door.

Unlike most prostitute fic, this is actually almost believable. Jim is the owner, retired from the actual prostitution side of things. Blair is his same inquisitive self. All in all, it’s almost realistic that the two of them would get involved in a relationship with each other right after meeting.

When I first read this, it was the first BDSM I’d read that is actually well-written. The punishments are descriptive but not too descriptive. The dom/sub dynamic is a growing thing, not natural or perfect in any way. Perhaps the best part is that the characters are quite flawed.

The supporting characters in this are all fantastic. Sam is perfect as a heartless dominatrix. Simon is just the man you’d expect him to be in this situation. Perhaps best is Naomi; it’s fascinating to see all the ways she affected Blair’s life in this.
