— Good Omens: Aziraphale/Crowley, 8k, General Audiences, no warnings.
— The revelation that Aziraphale might have been in love with him for thousands of years is surprising. The fact that literal books have been written on the subject comes as even more of a shock.

Technically written before the newest GO version (TV show), but incorporating some of the promo stuff and folding it into the book version– a lovely little story, almost meta about history and books and scholarly stuff. Good for romance nerds, book nerds, and historian nerds.

Lie Back And Think Of Dinner by jessthereckless [2019-06-08]
— Good Omens: Aziraphale/Crowley, 11k, Mature, no warnings.
— “Crowley, this is a disaster. This is everything I ever wanted. We’re in love. And there’s a picnic. And we don’t seem to be able to get…amorous without causing earthquakes.”

Aziraphale attempts subterfuge. Crowley sees right through him.

The first GO fic I read since watching the new Amazon miniseries and it’s totally re-inflamed my love for this fandom (having previously read and loved the minuscule amounts of fic available in the early 2000s). Very cute, very sexy, great character moments and I love the weird occult/ethereal power shenanigans angle.

11 Explicit Symbrock Fanfic Recommendations

Hello, and welcome to doctorsidrat’s Very Dirty Symbrock Fanfic Recs List!

All of these fics are Eddie/Venom, rated EXPLICIT (18+), and most of them feature some kind of tentacle situation, let’s be real. Some of these are comics-verse, most are movie-verse. Check the warnings on any fic before you start reading, as always. Continue reading “11 Explicit Symbrock Fanfic Recommendations”

— Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Julian Bashir/Elim Garak, 5.5k, Mature, no warnings.
— “You want me to read to you?” Julian repeated, somewhat taken aback.

A sweet little fic about semi-accidental seduction by literature. One of the nicest things about most Bashir/Garak fics I’ve read is they get really invested in the cultural differences between the two characters, and a lot of the relationship development is through the navigation thereof. This one does the same, through the lens of popular fiction/courtship! And linguistics jokes!

Away Childish Things by lettered [completed 2018-11-07]
— Harry Potter: Harry/Draco, 153k, Teen+, warnings: past child abuse, homophobia.
— Harry gets de-aged. Malfoy has to help him.

I am a HUGE SUCKER for stories where Draco and Harry figure out Hard Truths Together and also do nice things for each other despite wanting to be snippy. Kid!Harry broke my damn heart, and grownup!Draco was so sweet. I’ve already read this fic TWICE and I’ll probably reread it several more times in the future.

Hermione Granger’s Hogwarts Crammer for Delinquents on the Run by waspabi [2017-05-21]
— Harry Potter: Harry/Draco, 94k, Teen+, no warnings.
— ‘You’re a wizard, Harry’ is easier to hear from a half-giant when you’re eleven, rather than from some kids on a tube platform when you’re seventeen and late for work.

Harry Potter AU where Harry never goes to Hogwarts but still gets to make friends and kick ass. Featuring POC!Harry and POC!Hermione, plus hot Neville. I’m always interested in AUs which present a slightly different version of the characters we know, because of how the different plot has changed them, while also balancing their core characterization. This fic does a good job of that– Harry is angrier and less trusting because he never got to go to Hogwarts as a child, etc.
