Jack/Bitty (Check Please)
Something Like This by emmagrant01
Jack thought his first year in the NHL would be 100% about hockey, but the reality is so much more complicated. (AU where the Goodbye for the Summer comics didn’t happen, because I had already written 80K words of this. But just because it’s canon doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy long, angsty, get-together stories, amirite?)
So, the reason I haven't recced anything for a few weeks is because I have been slowly (very slowly) reading this amazing piece of writing. You know those fics where you don't want to stop reading but you also don't want it to ever be over? This is one of those. I absolutely loved it. I was fully invested in Jack and Bitty's story, of course, but I also fell hard in love with the original characters. This whole thing was so great!

Will/Hannibal (Hannibal)
A Remedy for Love by emungere
Hannibal takes Will to Venice. A sequel to Consenting to Dream; you may want to read that one first.
I recced the first part of this a few weeks ago and I don't know why I didn't immediately read the sequel. It's wonderful

Provenance by drinkbloodlikewine and whiskeyandspite
A delightful AU about a rare book dealer, an owner of a high-end coffee shop, and murder. This does involve Hannibal Lecter, after all.
I am constantly amazed and delighted that the Hannibal fandom manages to cover all the usual tropes yet still keep it in keeping with the show and the the characters. This really was delightful.

Sea Change by xzombiekittenx
Will Graham is in love with Hannibal. He is also straight. This is the story of Will coming to terms with the fact that he's in a relationship with a man. It's less difficult than he thought it would be.
This is a lovely post-finale exploration of feelings

Bloodline by xzombiekittenx
Someone is murdering fledgling vampires and it's up to Will Graham to figure out whodunnit while coming to grips with his own undeath. Ostensibly, Hannibal Lecter, whose noble and ancient linage opens doors for the investigation, is supposed to be helping. Helping, is not the term Will would use.
I do like a good vampire AU and this is a great vampire AU

Gabe/Tyson (Hockey RPF)
As Tall As Cliffs by oflights
Tyson and Gabe both made 2015 resolutions to give each other more compliments. It turns into a whole thing, and ends about how you'd expect.
Honestly the reason I have become an Avs fan is 60% because the players are adorable dorks and 40% because oflights writes amazing fics like this

Will/Hannibal (Hannibal)
Blackbird by emungere
Shortly after Will kills Garret Jacob Hobbs, he and Hannibal stumble into a D/s relationship. It's a relief to have Hannibal telling him what to do, but the closer they become, the closer he gets to realizing who and what Hannibal really is.
I really do love everything this author has written in this fandom. This one is beautiful

Where All Ladders Start by emungere
Will is slowly losing his mind in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. He makes a deal with the devil to get out.
I've recced a lot of stuff by this author but I think this is my favourite of all the fics of theirs that I've read. So good.

A Great and Gruesome Height by mokuyoubi
In his mind, the fall lasts a small eternity. In reality, it's maybe two seconds.
Will and Hannibal go over the cliff, just like they planned.

And I think this might be my favourite fic in the fandom out of all the ones I've read so far. It feels so perfectly in character

Gabe/Tyson (Hockey RPF)
Love on Top by lovershour
On this Valentine's Day, the #Avs' Gabe Landeskog & Tyson Barrie wrote love notes...

...Then Gabe & Tyson read them to each other. #Avs360 ❤️

Yeah, I ran out of Pens fic to read so I decided to branch out into other teams and the video that inspired this fic was pretty much what converted me to this team. If hockey players are going to write each other Valentine's and then read them to each other what am I supposed to do except go looking for fic

Left-Handed Kisses by oflights
The one where Tyson's fooling around with Gabe, already way out of his league, and then finds out he's apparently fooling around with a prince. And he might be a little bit in love with him. It's pretty brutal.
This has all my favourite things. Pining, secret identity, matchmaking, friends who are 100% done with this nonsense. I loved it.

Will/Hannibal (Hannibal)
The Borderland State by nekomuse
Three years after Hannibal's arrest, Will Graham stands on the front porch of his Georgian seaside home and watches twin headlights navigate the winding stretch of his lane. There is only one reason Jack Crawford would travel all this way, in the rain: Hannibal Lecter has escaped from prison, and no one knows where he is.
Yep, I’m still working my way through Hannibal fic. This captures the tone of the first season beautifully

Taken for Rubies by emungere
Will invites Hannibal over for dinner. Hannibal brings him wine and flowers. A dissection of their pasts and the slow convergence of their domestic lives.
I really love this author’s work a lot. Cross-dressing isn’t usually something that I’m interested in but she makes it work so perfectly for these characters

Will/Hannibal (Hannibal)
Shark Tank by xzombiekittenx
Will and Hannibal meet in prison. Hannibal is still the Ripper, Will is still a profiler who had encephalitis. Only now they're cell mates
It’s occurred to me that I haven’t really read any fics in this fandom and since I’ve run of of things in my other fandoms I decided to dive in. A bit weird starting with an AU but it has the most kudos on AO3 and I did enjoy it once I got used to the different setting :D

Yuri/Victor (Yuri on Ice)
Unworthy by heartsdesire456
5 Times Victor Overheard People Saying Yuuri Wasn't Good Enough For Him and 1 Time Someone Told Him Yuuri Was Too Good For Him
This is just adorable

Five Times Viktor and Yuuri Were Jealous of Makkachin (and the one time they weren't) by braveten
"Viktor will do whatever is necessary in order to never see Yuuri cry again. He’d walk miles across broken glass. He’d relinquish all of his gold medals to JJ Leroy. He’d let Phichit hack his Instagram account."

Viktor and Yuuri are jealous of Makkachin on multiple occasions, but the adorable brown poodle might be the only way to get them to realize their love for one another.

These silly boys and their adorableness

Breathe Easy by tolstoyevski
Yuuri breaks down the night before his Free Skate at the Grand Prix Final, and Viktor is there to comfort him. What Yuuri doesn't realize is that Viktor also understands him.
So many feelings

Practice is Cancelled by arisprite
Victor gets a cold, and the Katsuki family is there for him.
Utterly unrepentant sickfic and I love it

Question and Answer by chellethewriter
Viktor is growing old, and his competitors seem to be growing younger and younger. Thus, with every passing year, Viktor finds fewer familiar faces at his Grand Prix banquets, and he wonders whether his attendance has become pointless. What he doesn’t realize, however, is that one unfamiliar, alcohol-reddened face can make the whole night more than worthwhile.
(A canon-compliant retelling of the banquet in which Viktor falls head-over-heels for a certain drunk, Japanese figure skater, and Yuri Plisetsky is both displeased and incredulous).

Oh, god, this is so beautiful

Glass Heart by ProcrastinatingPalindrome
Five times Victor Nikiforov cried (and one time he cried in Yuuri's arms.)
Gah, this is so sweet!

Stay By My Side by paranoid_fridge
“Finally!” somebody shouts and Yuuri jumps. Russian Yuri stomps toward him, expression dark. “He's on his third round of that.” Yuri jerks a thumb to the rink behind his back. “Make him stop before he hurts himself.”

Aka Yuuri says "let's end this", Viktor turns to melodramatic skating, they get to cry and kiss (in that order) and all is well in the end.

Gosh I love these idiot boys so much

Kent/Tater (Check Please)
Careful the Tale You Tell by tiptoe39
Kent has been telling himself a story, ever since the Q. It's the epic story of Parse and Zimms, and he's in love with it.

But sometimes life gets in the way of the stories we tell ourselves.


Kick on the Starter by fabricant
In which Kent Parson plays hockey, learns that grieving isn't a cut and dried process and comes out on Twitter, not necessarily in that order.
This ALSO gave me so many feelings!

New Things by alianne82
Kent has no idea how he even ended up at this stupid Christmas party. It’s not like he’s a big fan of the holidays in the first place, and seriously, this is all just a little much.
Lovely bit of Christmas fluff

When The Moon Hits Your Eye by freefall
When Kent adopts a stray dog the worst thing that he was expecting was fleas or difficulties house-training. He never thought he would have to deal with pack disputes between Russian werewolves.

Kent would like it to be known that he is a cat person and he never signed up for any of this shit.

I haven’t read a lot of Check Please AUs but this one was wonderful!

Sid/Geno (Hockey RPF)
Say My Name by cloudcover
The guy’s face was ruddy with cold and his black hair, when he pulled the knit hat from his head, was damp and curling at the ends. He stood blinking in confusion at the Cyrillic menu above the counter, twisting his hands together to warm them.

The picture he made was so completely pathetic (and familiar, if Zhenya was honest about it), that Zhenya decided to step in. How many times had he himself stared up at the incomprehensible jumble of an English menu, hoping someone would take pity on him?

Gah, this is so adorable!

Phil/Carl (Hockey RPF)
A Charmed Life by cloudtrader
There was something... not quite right, though. He knew the bitter tang of the Leafs magic was slowly fading from his aura, like trails of oily residue being washed away as more Toronto fans put him out of their thoughts and more Pittsburgh fans learned about him, but there was something... something left over. He still had bits of Boston seasoned into him, of course, but the remnants of Toronto felt like a permanent frog in the back of his throat, like saliva burning under his tongue. It was kinda weird, but he figured it was just a Canadian hockey magic thing.

“It's not a Canadian hockey magic thing, Phil!” Sid said exasperatedly.

I love the worldbuilding in this one. Such a fascinating idea.

Yuri/Victor (Yuri on Ice)
Praise Please
Viktor is a good coach. Strict, talented.

But Viktor is kind. He gives praise like a waterfall, overflowing and loud and it makes Yuuri drown.

This is so sweet and perfectly in character

Clark/Lex (Smallville)
Play Forgiveness
The call comes in when Clark is drunk on sleep and his face is buried deep in the pillow. "The President requires your assistance."
I don’t know why but I felt an urge to read Smallville fic this week and I found this wonderful one that I hadn’t read back when I was active in the fandom

Male Hawke/Fenris
In for the Kill
Hawke and Varric run a small yet accomplished criminal empire, specialising in theft, espionage, and assassinations. When a big new job comes in, Hawke goes to seek some outside help from Fenris, an infamous (and expensive) assassin who just happens to be in Kirkwall. (AU with canon setting but different career choices)
This is so much fun. A bit like a Leverage AU and I loved it
hils: (Default)
I'm in the middle of replaying Dragon Age 2 and it got me in the mood to read some fic :D

M!Hawke/Fenris (Dragon Age)
Ace in the Hole by etamiss
Hawke spends most of his time getting rich and getting drunk (not necessarily in that order) while playing cards in taverns. While away from Kirkwall, he ends up playing against an overly confident Danarius who bets his slave, Fenris, as the main prize. (AU with canon setting)
I loved this one, especially the way Hawke was written

Fenris/Anders (Dragon Age)
From These Emerald Waters Doth Life Begin Anew by andrastesknickerweasle
As the Chantry burns, Fenris makes a mistake that will lead he and Anders into the Inquisition’s path, and a promise that will change their lives forever.
This was absolutely amazing! Can’t believe I never read it before

MEMENTO MORI by spicyshimmy
On one of his earlier escape attempts from the Circle, Anders makes it as far as Tevinter, but it's not the liberation he'd hoped for. Many years later, as part of Danarius's retinue, he meets up with the gang in Kirkwall during Act 3--but as a very different man. Hawke often enjoyed exploration after a skirmish, to cool his blood by picking through a vanquished foe’s meaningless effects. There were times when Fenris permitted it as a personal indulgence, and times when, for whatever reason, he did not.
Really interesting canon-divergence story

Paper and Cotton by calligraphypenn
Over the centuries, there developed in the Circle of Magi a tradition of showing affection, regard and intent through the giving of small, practical trinkets. It became a way to dodge any suspicion from the Circle authorities--who could object to the gift of some paper, or a single coin?

In which Fenris is a practical elf, and accidentally tells Anders through tokens that he likes him VERY MUCH. But (at first) Fenris has no idea, and Anders is daily more baffled and suspicious.

OMG this is just adorable!

Dorian/Cullen (Dragon Age)
The Inescapable Risk of Intimacy by esstiel
Were Dorian back home, they would fuck a few times to get whatever it is building between them out of their systems then go back to their regularly scheduled lives. They would most likely never speak again unless required to by a formal setting, and both parties would be expected to keep their deviant activities a secret.

But they aren’t in Tevinter, and what’s building between them isn’t sexual desire, not really.

Oh, this is a lovely slow burn fic

Sid/Geno (Hockey RPF)
A Perpendicular Expression of a Horizontal Desire by coricomile
"It's so good to meet you," Sharna says, her voice tinged with a soft Australian accent. She hasn't taken her hand off Geno's arm.

"Nice to meet you, too," Geno says, laughing when Sharna slips on the ice. They do a few circuits around the rink, one of the Pens crew following them since apparently Dancing With the Stars doesn't have a person on the film crew that knows how to skate.

Sid heads to the locker room. As long as it doesn't screw with their game, he doesn't care.

This is just adorable!

Lin-Manuel Miranda/Jonathan Groff (Hamilton RPF)
That Zig-Zag Hit Me Like A Dart by audenrain
"They sit like that all the time, now, Lin’s elbow twitching into his side when he jerks the controller and Jon pretending he’s not completely aware of every inch of their thighs pressed together. It’s fine. It's totally fine. Jon’s had crushes before."

[or: in which Jon is too oblivious to realize that they're already dating.]

Yes, I think we’ve already established I’m going to the special hell but this is so sweet!

Phil Kessel/Carl Hagelin (Hockey RPF)
Where I Want To Go by jamesbonds

The rest of his shield comes crashing down and Carl feels like a wave is breaking over him, slamming him into the rocks. He feels breathless and overwhelmed, like some other force out of his control is propelling him, like he’s not sure which direction is which.

“OH.” says a voice in the back of his head in response. Carl can’t stop staring at Phil, eyes wide and jaw hanging open a bit."

Carl gets traded once, twice, waits for a third time that doesn’t come. Instead he finds something else entirely.


Sidney Crosby/Alexander Ovechkin (Hockey RPF)
Heart in Hand by salifiable

In the story of Kent’s life, Jack is the one who got away.

(Or: Kent collects little pieces of Jack, over the years.)

“What? I didn’t—”
“3 AM here and you almost lose your point streak in game last night, Parse. You leave Vegas, go to not-Boston, call me at 3 AM. So you come to Providence, you tell me what happened.”
Kent took several deep breaths, but said nothing.

I never expected to have so many Kent Parson feels

Dot Your T's and Cross Your I's by coffeestars
Zimmermann's mark, the first thought his soulmate will have about him, is on his stomach. It is not the first thing Kent thinks when he meets Zimms.

Kent's own markings are illegible. His soulmate must not think much of him, but it's okay, because Kent doesn't think much of himself, either, as he bandages up his forearm and hides.

Sid's crew is in the business of shipping — mainly. Sometimes, when the shipments from Bettman Corps are slow, they pick up extra shipments, or find things that are misplaced and return them to their rightful owners.

Sid doesn't like it when he hears the word bounty hunter or vigilante thrown around, because as far as the authorities know, Sid's crew has done nothing wrong. But it's common knowledge that if something needs taking care of, the crew of the Pittsburgh can get the job done.

The dogs shut up.

"Hi, shit, sorry," says the stupidly fucking gorgeous man who opens the door in a tank top and boxers. "Shit, were the dogs loud? They get really excited when I come home."

"It’s three in the morning," Jamie says. On cue, a dog pokes its head around the corner to the entryway and bounces over to the — to this guy. It’s followed by another, browner dog, and Jamie has a moment of surrealist sleep-deprived horror where he imagines an infinite string of dogs forever bounding gleefully towards —

"I work two jobs. I’m Tyler," Tyler says, extending his hand. "Do you want to come in?"

Well, he’s not doing anything illegal, Jamie thinks, shaking it, because no criminal in the history of crime has ever willingly invited a cop into their house, and there is no one in the city of Dallas who hasn’t pegged Jamie as a cop within six seconds of meeting him.

Elastic Heart by cathedralhearts
“It’s so early, G,” Sidney mumbles as he pulls himself upright as takes the coffee and the bagel. Geno laughs and goes back into the kitchen, bringing the rest into the bedroom and settling on the covers, sipping his tea and unwrapping his own food.

Stars Apart by java_genie
It’s easy for Geno to imagine how things could better, out in the black. He’s read all the comic books and seen all the movies about the people who leave the core behind and find a second life, a better life, as pioneers and outlaws on the frontier of space. It means opportunity—the chance to scrub yourself clean of all the bad names and mean labels the core gives people born to parents not rich enough, smart enough or brave enough.

But Sid, he was born with all the right labels—and Geno can’t think of a single thing Sid could find out among the stars that he couldn’t have here at home.

“Flower?” Geno asks, inclining his head in the snoring goalie’s direction.

“Yes, give Flower lots of love. Not like Talbo.” Geno grins. “He not need any, okay? Gets plenty from mirror.”

The Say Love Heals All Wounds by deastar
“Geno? Are you okay? Physically,” Sid asks, which is good, because Zhenya doesn’t think he can put into words how he’s feeling emotionally. He imagines saying, The person I’ve loved for ten years finally took me to bed last night, but it turns out he didn’t want to, and now I can read his mind. No, thank you.

“Feel fine,” Zhenya answers. “Even head feel fine.” And suddenly he realizes how fucking odd that is: he was concussed, and the room is brightly lit – he should be hiding under a blanket right now. He narrows his eyes and asks, “Sid, why head feel fine? What happen to concussion?”

Sid takes a halting step closer to the bed and says, “Our bond, it’s—it’s a healing bond.”

“Holy mother of God,” Zhenya breathes. So. They’re definitely not breaking the bond, then.

Since he got it after his 18th birthday, Sidney's TiMER has always been blank instead of counting down like everybody else's is. Sid's not worried, since it probably means his soul mate just hasn't gotten around to getting a TiMER yet, so really, all Sid has to do is wait.
Oh, I do love a good soulmate fic

'cause it's the only thing i wanna do by bluejays
After a career-ending injury prevents him from being drafted to the NHL, Evgeni Malkin finds a new dream.

In which Geno opens his own coffee shop, makes some new friends, and lets himself fall in love with hockey (and Sidney Crosby) all over again.

Aww! This is adorable!

With Closed Eyes by whatjusthappened
Sidney is five. His mommy’s name is Trina and his daddy’s is Troy. Hockey is his favourite thing in the whole wide world, and when he dreams, he dreams of the future.
I really love all the time travel type fics in this fandom too

I want to scream 'I love you' (but I'm afraid someone else will hear) by Noxnoctisanima
Sid and Tyler come together at Worlds to win gold, commiserate about falling for unattainable teammates, and comfort each other with their dicks. However, when they come home those teammates might not be as unattainable as they thought and are getting the wrong idea.
Haha! This is so fun and very cute

All Across the Field by whatjusthappened
Sid’s got that look on his face, the one that never bodes well for Zhenya. The one where he ends up doing things he doesn’t want to, but can’t say no, because Sidney asked and Zhenya has always been weak in the face of Sidney’s desires.

It’s why he once ended up stealing the Stanley Cup while it had been in Jordy’s custody; they’d made him believe it had been kidnapped for a good twelve hours before returning it.

(There had been police and NHL officials involved.)

God, I can’t believe I read mpreg but it was super adorable. Don’t hate me?

To Love and to Cherish by hapakitsune
Sidney the wedding planner takes up with Geno, pastry chef extraordinaire.
Aww! This is so cute!

I Know I'm Gonna Be by bropunzeling
“Yes,” he says.

Sid hums, clearly distracted. “Yes what?”

“Yes, I go on trip with you, ” Geno says.

Aww! Another really adorable one

Do We Get What We Deserve by withershins
Sidney takes care of his wolves.
This is apparently a week for reading things I don’t normally like. Not usually a fan of werewolf AUs but this is so adorable!

Lay Me Down by brax
Five times Sid doesn't plan on waking up with Geno, and one time he does.
This is cute

Paws of Life by ladyblahblah
Life in a sleepy small town is a welcome change of pace for Sidney. Eager to leave his old city life behind, he's ready to settle into a quiet routine where the stress of his job peaks at planning a tour of the fire station for the local elementary school. He isn't looking for romantic entanglements, or anything else that might pull his focus away from his work. When he finds an abandoned, injured puppy by the side of a country road, though, Sidney can't do less than anything in his power to make sure it gets the care it needs.

He hadn't been counting on Dr. Evgeni Malkin. With his careful hands and warm smile, it's not long before Geno has the puppy patched up and happy again. And while Sidney never intends to foster the puppy himself, if it means occasional house calls from the local veterinarian, he can't quite bring himself to regret it.

Will Sidney be able to work past the memory of a previous loss and find a way to open his life to someone else again? Or will Geno have to work like a dog to bring this beauty's stubborn heart to heel?

Aww! So adorable!

The State of Marriage by iBear
Geno will always love his country.

Even if it doesn't always love him back.

Awww! So sweet!

Brand New Colony by oflights
The one where Sidney and Geno get drunk-married in Vegas, and the Pittsburgh Penguins go all in.
The slow burn in this one is delicious

King and Lionheart by thehoyden
Sidney’s wedding day doesn’t go quite as he’d planned. When he’d bothered to imagine it at all, he’d thought of a nice June wedding in Nova Scotia, outdoors with the sun streaming down. He hadn’t imagined this hurried affair on the tarmac on a rainy and unseasonably cool day in early September, a month after his twenty-fifth birthday.
I actually read most of this ages ago but for some reason I didn’t rec it. So good!

Up The Arbor To Your Door (And More) by oflights
Sidney’s backseat and trunk is full of hastily-packed boxes, suitcases, books and hockey gear.

“You live in truck?” Geno asks, and he sees Kuni waving him off way too late.

Aww! Lovely!

I Want To Belong Here by cathedralhearts
“Can I come to Russia with you?”

Zhenya’s brain fritzes out for a second. “Sorry?” he asks, thinking he’s misheard.

Years of pining can do that to a person -- make you believe that the object of your affections wants something more than they really do. Sid’s gone bright pink and is staring at the floor, so maybe it’s not pining-induced insanity. Sanja will be pleased.

Another really lovely one. Everything in this fandom is so nice

Once Upon A Dream by omelet
It is the first instance of a penguin proposing to a zookeeper in the history of the Pittsburgh Zoo.
So silly but so adorable

Side Effects Include... by lenore
In this rewriting of history, Sid gets an experimental treatment for his concussion that has some rather unusual side effects. Geno helps him out. There are complications.
I am amazed but also not amazed that a sex pollen fic exists in this fandom

How Sweet It Is by vlieger
The first time Sid gets a picture of a cake from an unfamiliar number, he assumes it's a mistake.
This is so sweet! Pun not intended!

Icy With A Chance of Romance by sirona
In which a graduate student from Russia and a Cole Harbour native have a meet-cute in the midst of terrible Nova Scotia winter weather - a Canadian shack fic.
So sweet!

Work in Progress by omelet
Because his life is a joke, Sidney turns out to be kind of an artist and Geno turns out to be kind of a model.
Aww! This is so lovely!

Mutant AU by withershins
A series of scenes featuring Sid and Geno: mutants in the NHL.
Wasn’t sure about this at first but I actually ended up really enjoying it
