My HP Fic Recs. I tend to like multi-chapter epics (50,000+ words) and the majority of them are rated R/NC-17. I much prefer fics that aren't on fanfiction.net, but I won't rule out reading them if there are good reviews (gushing over the author doesn't count) even then I'm leery however. I also prefer completed fics, I've been burned too many times by WIP's, my one continual exception is AYLNO.

A note to all HP authors: If you have fic on FF.net, please consider moving it to AO3 or another HP archive. There are many to choose from, if you need help finding one, ask, please, it will only work to your benefit.

Why, yes I've found a fandom where I like Het pairings. ;) It happens so rarely it deserves special notice. *grins*

NOTE: Updated July 20th 2017

Recs are divided up by pairing

You can find more recs in my memories here, with my recs tag here and on AO3 here. All these links have multifandom recs, not just HP. You will also find more recs in many fandoms here

NOTE: Some links may be broken, I am trying to list other places to find those fics. If you find a broken link, leave a comment and I'll try to fix it.

I'm always looking for new fics to read. If you know of a fic you think I'll love, based on these recs, feel free to leave a comment here. You can see other pairings I'm interested in here.

This will likely be my last rectober post. It's going up today because I won't have any time to post tomorrow. All these recs are [livejournal.com profile] samhain_smut entries from previous years. This is just a sampling, there are plenty more lovely fics over there. Take a look through the masterlist from each year to make searching easier. :)


6 Halloween /Samhain inspired fics )
arenee1999: (Fanfic)
None of these are Harry Potter fics! :) They are all crossovers and from a myrid of fandoms.

Seven fics this time ... )
arenee1999: (Fanfic)
These are all WIP's and all of them can be considered abandoned at this point. However, they are still really good stories and deserve some recognition. Obviously I love them or I wouldn't be recommending them.

They are also some of the longest fics I have ever read!

5 recs this time )

Title:Unguarded
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] birdsofshore
Pairing(s) Draco/Albus Severus
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15,030
Warnings: Shaving (facial) kink, Age Disparity (43/17)
Summary: Staying with Scorpius for the first time proves to be more eventful than Albus expected, right from the moment when he walks in on Mr Malfoy shaving.

Why I loved it:
It's so unbelievably HOT it melted my brain. No seriously. Go. Read.


Title:Portus
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] eidheann_writes
Pairing(s) Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,846
Warnings: Exhibitionism
Summary: It was just a stupid training exercise; why did he have to be paired up with Malfoy?

Why I loved it:
This is Harry and Draco at their best really. They're tired and dirty and wet and supremely annoyed and they can't stop picking fights with each other and it just keeps building until they're horribly horny and can't keep they're hands off each other. What could be better?!?


Title:Come For Me
Author/Artist: [livejournal.com profile] frayach
Pairing(s) Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,663
Warnings: Watersports (Important! See author’s notes), fleeting mention of H/OC infidelity, a brief "threesome," gender-bending fantasy role-play – and a ridiculously happy ending.
Summary: After Draco is paralyzed in an accident, he and Harry discover a new way to make love.

A/N: You may think you’re squicked by “watersports,” but this is NOT your grandmother’s watersports kink fic; in fact, I’m even reluctant to call this a “kink fic” at all (although it definitely is very very kinky). This is a romantic story that features a new way of making love when one of the partners has suffered a severe spinal cord injury and can no longer have a "traditional" orgasm. Until now, I’ve stayed away from reading & writing watersports fics because they so often involve humiliation, which I don’t like unless done exceedingly well. There is no humiliation in this story, only intense desire and a will to overcome any kind of adversity for the sake of love. *blushes at own sappiness & hides under bed* So that's what the fic is. What it is not is a "disability kink" fic. There is no fetishization of disability and no weird & creepy sexualized power dynamics related to disability.

Why I loved it:
The beginning is so heart-wrenchingly angsty. Then it's just beautiful and romantic and HOT as hell. I am such a sucker for fics that combine all of that into one story and this one does it brilliantly.
arenee1999: (Fanfic)
Title:Love Like a Sunset
Author: [livejournal.com profile] snarkyscorp
Pairing(s): Harry/Scorpius
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 20,713
Warnings (Highlight to view): *ADW: 45/19, some homophobia but that's what the fic deals with ;)*
Summary: The Wizarding community in Britain is a very conservative place. Scorpius is the leader of a rebellious group of queer young folk, out and proud and pushing as hard as they can against the strictures of their society. He's the most over the top, wild, flamboyant man that Head Auror Harry has ever met. Scorpius might as well walk about under a giant sign that declares him the gayest man in Britain (and once, he did). Harry is terrified that Scorpius will figure him out, but, god, he can't stop thinking about what might happen if he did.

Why I loved it:
This could have turned into crack!fic so easily and it didn't. It beautiful and real and brilliant.



Title: The November 9th Letters
Author: [livejournal.com profile] oliversnape
Pairing(s): Gen
Rating: PG
Word Count: 5,513
Warnings: None
Summary: Every year Harry Potter writes a letter to his second son, who is growing up surrounded by friends and family, new and old. Ignores a good chunk of the epilogue, happy and light.

Why I loved it:
This type of story isn't usually my cup of tea, but it is adorably sweet and the ending put a huge smile on my face.



Title: The Love of A Good Wizard
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sweetsorcery
Pairing(s): Harry Potter/Tom Riddle, Pansy Parkinson/Minerva McGonagall
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 75,027
Warnings: Time Travel, AU
Summary: History of Magic has something to teach after all, and two resourceful students decide that the key to having any future at all lies in the past, and in Tom Riddle's heart. Assuming he has one.

Why I loved it:
Wait!!! Don't run away! I know the pairings are a bit shocking but this story is worth it! Come on, give it a try, you know you want to. ;) It's SweetSorcery's most popular story for a reason after all. It even has a happy ending.

I've decided to give this a try. I'll be posting recs for fics that, for one reason or another, aren't on my HP rec list. Including at least 1 post dedicated to seemigly abandonded WIP's. I'll try for 1-2 posts per week with 2-3+ recs per post. I'll also try to slip in at least 1 post of fic for something other than Harry Potter, but really it's been well over a year since I've read anything else. Oops.
arenee1999: (Autumn)
So, I posted a prompt over at [livejournal.com profile] hp_darkarts for the Taboo Kink prompt fest and it's been filled!!!

Dreams by [livejournal.com profile] tiraen (Harry/Voldemort ; PG-13) After seeing Harry's erotic dreams, Voldemort decides to make them come true. [Taboo Kink: Rape Fantasy/Bloodplay]


I also wanted to rec a hilarious crack!fic

Truth or Dare? by TheFatalIllusion (PG-15)
When unusual circumstances leave the Dark Lord, Lucius and Draco Malfoy, Severus Snape, Ron, Hermione, Ginny and finally Harry Potter trapped together, unable to use their magic, what will happen when Harry suggests the innocent game of Truth or Dare?
Warnings: Crack!fic, Stupidity, Ron Bashing, Dumbledore bashing, slight Ginny bashing, OOCness, Extreme Silliness, Slash (snogging), Het (snogging), pranks, Embarrassing/Humiliating revelations, Hilarity
Note: Re Warnings, this is a game of Truth or Dare the questions and dares are meant to be difficult and embarrassing. That's the whole point of the game.


Both of these will likely make it in to my HP Rec List eventually.
arenee1999: (Fanfic)
My love of fanfic began in the Buffy fandom and quickly spiraled out of control. XD I generally gage how fannish I am about a show/movie/book series by whether I want to read fic about it and if so, how much fic I read before I get bored with it.

By that definition the only thing I am truly fannish about at the moment is Harry Potter. While I am still reading fic in a few other fandoms, mostly for [livejournal.com profile] epic_recs, HP is the only one I currently am still at the stage where I HAVE TO READ EVERYTHING!!!! *g*

Over the years I have read fic in the following fandoms: Highlander, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Doctor Who, Blake's 7, Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Harry Potter, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Tin Man (Sy Fy), Robing Hood (BBC), Sherlock Holmes (RDJ!Movieverse), Andromeda, Star Trek TOS, White Collar, Torchwood, The Beatles RPS, The Who RPS, RDJ/Jude Law RPS

I have even written a few fics. Most of them are now up on AO3 or can be found here under the 'my fic' tag or in my memories. I have written in Highlander (I don't suggest reading those), Blake's 7 (I actually like a few of those), 1 Star Trek Drabble (I wish I knew how to make this longer), 1 HP ficlet (which I actually like quite a bit), and 1 Sherlock Holmes/Iron Man crossover double-drabble (that is hilarious).


A few favorites (in multiple fandoms):

Survival of the Species by Romaine [Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, NC-17]
Draco approaches Harry on the 9 ¾ platform, after their sons have boarded the Hogwarts Express, and invites him over for tea. The discussion they have leads them on an adventure that neither could have expected. There be dragons! HPDH compliant.
Note: This is the fic that made me love Lucius. He's not even in it until the end, but something in those last few scenes made my heart melt. Oh, and despite the warnings on this one it does have a happy ending!

Kiss the Steel and Kiss of Shadows by esjay [Highlander, Duncan/Methos, NC-17]
"Nobody else dies because of me." Then someone did. And he might not be the last.
Note: There is so much angst in this, but it is a beautiful story.

Death Brings Clarity Series by JK Philips [BtVS, Buffy/Giles, R] (with optional NC-17 scene)
Post-“Gift” epic. Giles has a moment of clarity, but it’s too late. How he deals with Buffy’s death and how she comes back to him.
Note: One of the 'must reads' of the pairing.

Reflections by Van [Doctor Who, Two/Jamie, NC-17]
Charged with saving the universe, can the Doctor overcome his own darkness to defeat the Daleks? A Mirrorverse fic.
Note: Just choosing one of Van's fics was nearly impossible. I highly recommend any and all of his fics. He's written in multiple fandoms over the years, but the majority of them are probably DW.

The Price and Courts of Honor by Syn Ferguson [Star Trek: TOS, Kirk/Spock, NC-17]
A newcomer to the Enterprise awakens troubling feelings in both Kirk and Spock. Before they have a chance to resolve things, Kirk sends Spock on a difficult mission from which the Vulcan will not return unscathed.
Note: Go read it! No, seriously. Go. Read.

Ok. I think I'll stop there. As always my HP recs can be found here. There are quite a few pairings in there and not all of them are slash.  I also have quite the collection of recs in my memories here. Those cover multiple fandoms. If you find something with a broken link, I may have a working link. A few links broke when GeoCities went down a few years ago and I haven't gone back to add the new links. And my recs at [livejournal.com profile] epic_recs can be found here.

I'm always willing to give recs in any fandom I read/have read in. :) My pairings list (for all fandoms) can be found here, If you've been thinking of reading something in one of those fandoms or need new recs, I'm always willing to give a list of my favorites or a list of places I go to read certain pairings/fandoms. ;)

Epic-Recs

arenee1999: (Serenity - Keep Flying)
I will be starting on Saturday Feb. 25th at [livejournal.com profile] epic_recs and continuing every Saturday (Tuesdays for now) for the foreseeable future. :) My official claimed fandoms are:

Highlander
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Blake's 7
(more about B7, for those that are curious)
Firefly
Doctor Who


with the option of recc-ing in any unclaimed fandom I want.

I can rec in any pairing (Slash, Het or Gen). Although I am more likely to rec in pairings I already like, I'm not opposed to trying new pairings. At the moment the only pairings I refuse to read in those fandoms are: (Yes, Harry Potter fandom has made me quite flexible in what I'm willing to read)

Doctor Who: Simm!Master/Any, Seven/Any
BtVS: Buffy/Riley

I don't care for femslash, but if you know of a fic that is absolutely brilliant, I'll be willing to give it a go.

With that in mind, feel free to leave any fic suggestions here and I'll try to fit it into my rec list if it fits the qualifications of the comm. I'll keep a link to this post on my side bar for easy access and keep it updated with what I can rec in.

Also, if you know of any fic archives for those fandoms that I might find useful, PLEASE leave me a link to them.

Read more... )

I have a few author websites saved as well, but I could really use more archives that have multiple authors and multiple ships.

arenee1999: (HL Endgame Quote)
I've been invited to be a recc'er on [livejournal.com profile] epic_recs. I have a long-ish list of fics I will be using as a starting point for my recs, as well as looking up more on my own. At the moment I've been cleared to rec in the following fandoms:

Highlander
Firefly
Tin Man
Robin Hood - BBC 2006 
Blake's 7
Sherlock Holmes -- RDJ Movie!verse

I may be given the go ahead for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Doctor Who as well. And I can rec in any fandom that hasn't been claimed by another recc'er.

So my question is:

Are there any fics in those fandoms or any of the smaller fandoms I have listed here, that you think deserves recognition? They need to be well written with no or very little grammar/spelling errors and preferably 10,000+ words. There can be some that are shorter than that, but the point of the comm is long, plotty, well written fic.

arenee1999: (Draco)
I've come to love reading fic on AO3 for the simple reason that the multi-chapter EPICS that I am drawn to can easily be downloaded and put on my Kindle. Reading novels off the computer kills my neck and back. Most of the HP fic rec posts I've found rec fic on ff.net, which I despise, or here on LJ. So,  I've compiled a list of recs mainly from AO3. There are a few thrown in from other places as well.

I hope to keep adding to this list as I read more, as well as adding more pairings.



Why, yes I've found a fandom where I like Het pairings. ;) It happens so rarely it deserves special notice. *grins*

The Honor Harrington book series by David Weber is a Science Fiction series set in the future.

Having made him look a fool, she's been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her. Her demoralized crew blames her for their ship's humiliating posting to an out-of-the-way picket station. The aborigines of the system's only habitable planet are smoking homicide-inducing hallucinogens. Parliament isn't sure it wants to keep the place; the major local industry is smuggling; the merchant cartels want her head; the star-conquering, so-called "Republic" of Haven is Up To Something; and Honor Harrington has a single, over-age light cruiser with an armament that doesn't work to police the entire star system. But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They've made her mad.  ---Synopsis from 'On Basilisk Station'
