Right. Last time around I recced you a little Harry Potter. This time I’m going to tell you about some wonderful The Mortal Instruments stories (awkward segue is awkward), i.e. Malec fanfic. Canon slash! Yay :)
I read TMI ff for the first time a while ago. It wasn’t a pleasant experience. I managed to find fics where fifteen-year-old girls wrote stories about anal sex in a way that you’d believe they REALLY had no idea what they were talking about. *shudders* It threw me off quite a bit. But I love Malec…so I eventually had to try again…and this time it went SO much better!
I’m the kind of person who easily falls in love with writers…Original or Fanfic, doesn’t matter…so after I found one story I adored by this author, I had to try yet another one to see if I’d found something lasting
(I sound so pathetic). The two stories are very different, but they’re both great.
The first one is called Sandwich Boy
Alec only wants one thing - Magnus Bane to acknowledge his existence. M for later lemons. This is an AU/AH fic in which Magnus and Alec are in high school. Alec is rich and a closeted jock, but he’s secretly, or not so secretly, obsessed with the mysterious and openly gay Magnus. Magnus is a scholarship kid at a private school who hates rich kids, because in his experience they only want one thing from him, but maybe that kid with startling blue eyes who is always following him around is different? It’s really sweet and a little angsty, mostly really cute and fluffy though. It’s got such beautiful details, and just a wonderful atmosphere. I’m really glad I read this because not only did it make my heart swoon like crazy, it also led me to the second, and even better, fic!
The second story is called From the Cold (and it made me cry so badly!).
Magnus wakes up in a stranger’s apartment. As a prostitute who caters to vampires, he’s used to being battered come sun up. But this time there’s a boy at his bedside wanting to know exactly what he never asks: what happened the night before? This story is AU, but it actually retains a lot of elements from the canon plot…only in different ways than the original. It’s mega angsty and really stirred up emotions in me…it’s got a lot of things in common with Cassie’s writing… the ability to be infuriating, frustrating, and wonderful at the same time is just one of them. It also has the most wonderful line ever “We bonded super intensely. I don’t think that’s love. But I think we can fall in love. I think we can fall in love very easily.” Yes! Thank you! Brilliant.
Both stories are written by FFnet author Dr. Blind.

Just read this cute thing by @buildmeapyramid thought I’d share.
"I have no idea how my mom is going to react, but today is the day. I’m going to tell her that I’m gay." Entry for the Remember When This Was Fun contest. Slash, E/J, awkward situations, insane mothers, and lots of pamphlets.
It was a funny O/S. Thought it might brighten your day.

So what have I been reading lately you ask? Nothing much actually *hangs head*…but I have read some Drarry fanfic.
For all you aficionados out there…look away. I’m not an experienced Drarry reader and am still looking for those “big” authors, so I won’t be able to tell you about any hidden gems. But for you who are newbies like me…I’m gonna gush…and it’s gonna get uglay!
Nothing excites me more than when I find an author I like. Except when I find that the author I like is extremely prolific!! So is the case with this author that I’m currently in love with…not exaggerating. I love everything she writes, at least a little…often a lot!
Her name is faithwood, and even though she’s most active on her LJ account I’m linking to FFnet…because me and LJ are incompatible! From what I’ve gathered so far her stories are more focused on romance than smut, so keep that in mind.
Here are four of her stories that I LOVED:
At Your Service COMPLETED. Hogwarts students are in danger; Harry is determined to save them all. There’s only one thing he knows for certain: Draco Malfoy is somehow involved. An eight year fic. Post-DH. EWE. HPDM. SLASH. Mature content. Really well written with lots of action, but very little smut.
Sealed with a Kiss Harry Potter will fall in love with the first person who kisses him. Draco knows what he must do. A Christmassy Hogwarts kissy fic, this. An eight year fic. Post-DH. EWE. HPDM. SLASH. HUMOR. COMPLETE.So incredibly sweet with a fun twist that I didn’t see coming.
There Comes a Mist and a Weeping Rain It always rains for Draco Malfoy. Metaphorically. And literally. Ever since he had accidentally Conjured a cloud. A cloud that’s ever so cross. SLASH. HPDM. Humour. Metaphorical angst. Hufflepuffs. A peacock. An eight year fic. Post-DH. EWE. Again a really sweet story. Light on the smut but heavy on the adorableness.
Slightly Wrong Destination All Draco wants is sleep, but his bed won’t stop talking. More importantly, it refuses to stop looking like Harry Potter. HPDM, SLASH, HUMOR, COMPLETE. Made me smile, laugh, and swoon. Snarky, cute, and just a little sexy.
I encourage you to check out her stories if you like sweet and well written fics! <3s
(P.S. thank you to whoever made the lovely gif!)

Something weird has happened to me lately. I skip lemons. *collective gasp*
Yes, you heard me.
I’ve grown a bit tired of all the sexin’ in fic, and since a lot of slash fics tend to be very graphic, I’ve had some trouble finding stories I can actually read without getting bored. Thankfully, I recently found one, thanks to a rec on twitter. It’s called "The Trip Home Prequels", and it’s written by the talented MsKathy.
The main story “The Trip Home” is a poly story, with lucky girl Bella in the position we all wish for - in the middle of the deliciousness that is an Edward/Jasper sandwich.
"The Trip Home Prequels," on the other hand, is purely slash, and focuses on how Edward and Jasper fell in love. It’s short and sweet, and tells the tale of growing up, experiencing strange feelings for your best friend, wondering how to interpret all the new emotions and if they, by any chance, are mutual. Now, there are some sexy parts, but they are so sweet and tender that they melt my heart.
The line that drew me in was Jasper’s description of the first time they touched. This is universal, no matter your sexual orientation, and that is what I like about it. It shows that the first love, the first awkward and hesitant touches, they are the same for everyone.
"The very first time we touched was in his bathroom. Edward had just taken a shower before bed, and I had to go pee. It would have been nothing for me to walk by him and take a piss as he towel dried, but this time, I let my hand swing out just a little farther than normal. The moment the edge of my right hand brushed across his towel-clad thigh, I got hard. So hard I thought I might pass out. Thankfully, I didn’t."
Their relationship evolves, and finally Jasper finds the courage to touch Edward deliberately, in a way that can’t be misinterpreted. The POVs switch, and we get to experience their budding love from both sides. Edward is a little more confused than Jasper…
"I had no clue what had been happening with Jasper and me. The first time he came into the shower with me and began touching me, I was so full of need. I didn’t even know what I needed so badly: the release? The intimate touching? Jasper? I remember thinking it couldn’t have been Jasper. I wasn’t gay."
I recommend starting by reading the Prequels and then move on to the slightly more graphic main story, if you’re not opposed to bring Bella in to the equation. After all, it’s pretty nice to imagine yourself in Bella’s place, whether she is on top of one of them, between someone’s legs giving head, in the middle of the Edsper sandwich, or just watching the two boys having fun… The bond that forms between the three of them is a strong one, and it’s interesting to explore their relationship. I have yet to finish the main story, but so far I’m very happy - and I haven’t even skipped the lemons so far!
You can find MsKathy on Fanfiction.net and on Twitter as @mskathy. Be sure to leave her some love!

I’m starting this rec with a couple of personal disclaimers. The main characters in TC are Jasper and Jacob. That’s right, Jacob. It’s no secret that I’m not a huge fan of him. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate Jacob. However, I typically don’t got out of my way to read stories where he plays a major role.
TC is not only the first fic I’ve read where Jacob is a major character, but it’s also the first one I’ve read where he’s paired with Jasper. To be perfectly honest, I thought I wouldn’t like it. See, I tend to believe that Jasper and Edward were made for each other.
I love Jack (jacksonmccoy), and had previously read his O/S, “Field Trip” which was so hot it left me wanting more. (Go read it!) This is how I found myself contemplating reading TC and having my J/J cherry popped.
So, I dove in. And guess what? It’s fantastic! Jack’s writing and characterizations are so well done that I was immediately swept up into the story.
His description of Jasper and his gift is probably the best I’ve ever read:
"It was quiet out here, acoustically and empathically. Emotions weren’t just there or not there. They were more like gravity; you could never really escape them, only get a little distance."
Jack also perfectly explores Jasper’s inner struggle living with the Cullens and the pressure of having to be someone he’s not.
"This playing the teenager was getting way too damn old. He was no one’s son to be scolded and he certainly didn’t think he wanted to live this way any longer.
Alice always insisted this was where they were meant to be but if he was being honest, he didn’t trust her to know a damn thing about him anymore. All she seemed interested in was pretending he was a Ken in her Dream House that she could dress up and order around.
He appreciated the lifestyle. He was glad to have found a diet he could tolerate and a support system to keep with it, but damn it he was getting real fed up with the fucking rules that went with it.”
Jacob, on the other hand, has his own struggles. He ‘s gay and has been trying to protect that secret from the wolf pack and his family. In a moment of frustration; however, he announces the truth and immediately sees what he feared written all over his father’s face.
"And there it was, no mistaking it. Disgust. His only boy was a faggot. Jacob hated the judgment he saw in his father’s eyes, but he was glad he at least knew. No more doubt. He couldn’t be himself here. Their unconditional love didn’t extend to this."
When Jasper and Jacob do come face to face with each other, their chemistry is pretty instantaneous. Despite all the odds that are stacked against them, including the fact that they are natural born enemies, they are undoubtably drawn to each other.
"An uncomfortable silence descended on the pair as Jacob stared into those golden eyes. He let himself acknowledge, just for a moment, that he wished to close the space between them. As soon as he did, he realized his mistake.
Jasper’s eyes went wide and Jacob began to turn burnt red as he realized the vampire could feel his lust, quite literally.”
Let me just say that the sexual tension between these two is palpable, and Jack writes it brilliantly. TC is only four chapters in, and I, for the first time ever, am looking forward to more Jacob.
You can check out Too Close, as well as Jack’s other’s stories (Including that yummy O/S) here:
***To note, we did lose Jackson a while ago, he is missed, but we made the decision to move the rec over from the other site. I still hope you enjoy the fic, even though Jackson is no longer here to give thanks for reading.

TDR is also an Edward and Jasper O/S. This story begins with Edward on a mission to find work clothes for his new job. While browing in Banana Republic, he is approached from behind by a sales clerk. Edward turns around and is immediately turned on:
"Fuck me, he was gorgeous. His sultry grey-blue eyes stood out against the soft waves of blonde that framed his face. His skin was taut, smooth and sun-kissed. Peeking down at his mouth, I watched in awe as his perfect, pink tongue came out and wet his full, crimson lips.”
The salesclerk proceeds to lead Edward to the dressing room while Edward proceeds to fantasize:
"There was nothing I wanted to do more than to follow that blonde god back to the dressing room and fuck the shit out of him, but even I wasn’t bold enough to fuck out in public. He was just so damn HOT!I needed to get a grip here."
After the clerk leaves Edward to try on his clothes, Edward is so turned on by this point that he begin to stroke himself. However, he soon realizes that he is no longer alone. The clerk quickly introduces himself as Jasper, then the two immediately begin to devour each other. The boysexin here? Fucking UNF!
"How do you want to be fucked, darlin’? Soft and sweet or hard and rough?" he (Jasper) rasped, dragging my hips to him and rubbing his cock up and down my ass."
I’m going to do you a favor now and tell you Edward goes with hard and rough. But you’re going to have to read rmhale’s fic to get the details (Feel free to spank me for that ;). The ending to this story is a sweet surprise. I’m not going to give that away either (More spanks please).

WSC tells the story Jasper Whitlock and Eduardo Cullen who are both strikers on opposing soccer teams. Jasper plays for the LA Galaxy, while Eduardo is a new player for their biggest rivals, Chivas USA. Jasper is pumped and ready to prove himself by leading his team to victory. Everything goes well for him until he loses his footing in the process of attempting a goal and lands right on top of Eduardo. The reaction is instantaneous:
"My body was on fire everywhere we touched and his eyes were just as wide as mine, his breathing just as harsh.”
Eduardo Cullen was fucking breathtaking…I felt him in every inch of my body, and by the way he looked at me, he felt it too.
In fact, the affect on Jasper is so mindblowing it literally brings him to his knees…in the middle of the soccer game:
"The sheer intensity of the feelings raging inside my body, swirling and sucking me down into a vortex of need, bringing me to my knees and I dropped to the ground and huddled in a ball.’
Jasper manages to pull himself together somewhat, but the two players spend the rest of the game fighing that pull. After the game, Jasper heads to a local pub with some teammates to celebrate their big win. Much to his astonishment, Eduardo is there. One thing leads to another, and the two men soon leave the pub together:
"You know I’m not taking you anywhere to talk, don’t you?" I said, rubbing my cock against his so he knew what I meant."
Unable to fight their feelings any longer, they return to Jasper’s hotel room where things immediately become heated. Just let me say the boysexin that follows is hot and intense. But underneath it all, rmhale does an amazing job of showing that neither man has ever felt a connection like this:
"Eduardo, feel what you do to me," I said as my mouth came down on his while my hips pushed forward. I made love to his mouth until I was fully seated inside of his body, the connection was intense. Our mouths and bodies joined together, his skin against mine. His hands found mine and our fingers intertwined together as I slowly began to move my hips."
Afterwards, Jasper knows that Eduardo is someone he could build a life with:
"… please don’t stay if you don’t want more than this night." I looked away from him, tears stinging the corners of my eyes. "I couldn’t handle it," I whispered.
Fortunately for Jasper, Eduardo feels exactly the same.
Hey, guys! I’m Joanne22Spn on Tumblr (@Joanne22Spn on twitter) and I’m going to review a great Destiel fanfiction for TwistedInSlash. This is my first Supernatural fic review, given the fact that I’ve only joined this fandom a couple of months ago, so I’ll try to do it justice. :-)
Shirley007 is the one who convinced me to watch this fascinating TV series and here I am now reading her Supernatural inspired stories. Calling an Angel is the one which caught my eye and understandably so: “In a drunken stupor, Dean calls his favorite angel. What starts out quite innocently turns into a night neither of them will ever forget. Phone sex. Completed.” Now, who wouldn’t wanna read that?
Life on the road takes its toll on Dean; he has certain needs, both physical and emotional, but how could he satisfy them when he can’t get close to anyone, without them getting hurt by the forces of evil? So he gets drunk and calls the only being that has been there for him and helped him in ways not many would think possible - Castiel, his angel. What starts out as phone sex, turns into something more, when Cas shows up in the hunter’s motel room, taking him by surprise, turning him on with his innocent curiosity and lust. Chapter 1 ends with Dean’s silent promise to himself that he would continue to show the angel that they belong together.
Chapter 2 focuses on Castiel’s feelings about what he had experienced for the first time, on his surrender and trust in Dean, and on their lovemaking (notice I don’t just say sex, because it’s way more than that). I won’t go into details, because you need to read it for yourself. What really impressed me about this second half of the story was how well Shirley managed to convey Castiel’s purity, lust and adoration for the hunter, feelings which were typically human and totally reciprocated by Dean. If you’re looking for something sexy, yet sweet to read, this is the story to choose. There’s just enough kinkiness to spice up the gentleness between the two characters.
I would like to thank Shirley for making slash fanfiction appealing to me and most of all, for welcoming me to the Supernatural fandom. :-)
Another ‘thank you’ goes to Lea aka TwistedIn/TwistedInSlash for giving me the opportunity to ramble on her blog about things I like. =D

A Night in ViennaEd, Jas, Seth, and Emmett are in a band that has been touring for months. But Ed and Jasper have been fighting for most of that time. One day, they get left behind and are forced to deal with their frustration.This one doesn’t have a full blown lemon in it, more like an oh so good rubba-dubba-dubb.
Little Margot: MatchmakerAlice is a ballerina recovering from an injury. Edward is her loyal partner but Alice knows that he deserves more. That’s why she plans to hand him her brother, Jasper, on a silver platter. Luckily, he’s in town.I loved this one, the sensuality in her description of the dance was enough for me to mark it as favorite.
Racerback"As I watch him do the breast stroke through the choppy morning waters, I almost want to be in his place. What would it be like to be so alone?" AH/AU Ed, Jas and pot cookies.Reading the struggle Edward goes through in this is so true to many young gays. This one I am in love with, I am badgering the author to continue it. I have the promise to be the first to know if she does.
Peace Out all my loves, and be safe!
