I have a handful of lil recs to make (this is basically just becoming a place for me to rec and rec and rec, I know :'))

Podfics:
  • Merlin (Merlin/Arthur): The Trouble with Courting (PG-13), read by [livejournal.com profile] calliglad   [so funny and wonderful--I've listened to it twice now because her voice for Arthur is just so brilliant]
  • Suits (Harvey/Mike): Good Boy (NC-17), read by [personal profile] dodificus  [Guh--I loved the fic because of reasons *fans self* annnnd, didn't think it could get any hotter until I listened to this welp]
Fanfic:

Skyfall (Bond/Q):
  • Just There (NC-17), by [archiveofourown.org profile] villain  [the first hurt/comfort fic I've where it zeroes in a bit more on the comforting aspect--quite lovely] 
  • Slow Hands Killer (R), by [archiveofourown.org profile] paxlux  [so well written. From all the 00Q fics I've read (and okay, this might be because I've been leaning heavily towards all the Q!whump) there seems to be a certain style of writing in a lot of them, which is almost minimal? But also quite breathtaking and captivating. It's interesting, and I wonder whether authors in the fandom have sort of just picked it up from each other when writing this pairing/this genre. ANYWAY, the point is is that I thoroughly enjoyed this.]
  • ...Would Smell As Sweet (NC-17), by [archiveofourown.org profile] im_not_a_lizard  [*cheers for fanfic trope* Q makes sex pollen, and the rest is history. Perf ending is perf.]
Merlin (Merlin/Arthur):
  • Radioman (G), by [archiveofourown.org profile] Footloose  [okay, so I finally jumped on the Loaded March bandwagon. I couldn't help it, even though I'm usually terrible at reading longfic. Sometimes I can barely make it through longer oneshots, but I couldn't stop reading 'Radioman' which is the first part of this WIP series (which I guess you all already know about). It's about 600k atm, I think? Anyway, I'm going to stagger it because there's no way I can read more than 30k at a time :O I do really love it so far though--it's written excellently, and Arthur's been a perfect dick, whilst Merlin's been adorably bumbling while at the same time being a BAMF genius, so pretty much the best set up for a Merthur fic. Plus, there's the fact that it's a military AU with magic. It's really quite brilliant.]

ceebee: (00Q)
So, I went to see Skyfall last weekend and I loved it--seriously, if you haven't seen it yet and you get the opportunity you should definitely go. The shippy aspect was just an added bonus tbh--I've always liked Daniel Craig's Bond, and this was the best film I've seen in ages. By the time Adele's song started (and that was after the OPENING scene) I felt like I'd had an adrenaline rush, and all I was doing was sitting there and watching.

Anyway! James Bond/Q is an awesome ship (but ugh, the pain because what if THEY GET A NEW BOND AND THERE'S NO MORE 00Q MATERIAL ARGH)

Good thing there's already a tonne of fanfic that's been/is being written *happy sigh*

If you read any of these two recs PLEASE read the warnings from the authors--they're both pretty dark (as in, graphic torture and some non-con dark) but incredibly written. Also, they're series! One is a WIP, but the first part (which is 10 chapters) is amazing. Really, I can't rec either of them enough. They're the first two that I've read so far (admittedly, I haven't read very many yet) that have blown me away by how in character Q is. I'm a bit in awe of the authors' intelligence, because it just comes through in the dialogue and I love it.

I'm gonna be on the prowl for Skyfall/Sherlock crossovers next, because a friend of mine said she'd read a few and they were all sorts of perfect :')

"the hand beneath your head" series
(explicit)
Author: skylights
Summary: Q remembers New Orleans as a dark room and a red haze, a burning in the back of his throat and heroin in his veins. Bond remembers New Orleans as sixty hours without sleep and the sick satisfaction of killing because he wants to. (Or, what happens in New Orleans, on the way there and after. A hurt/comfort series.)

"But Now I've Got You" series (mature, WIP: Part 1 complete)
Author: raven_aorla
Summary: Post-Skyfall. When Bond rescues Q from the hands of some particularly nasty captors, it is only the beginning. 

And now I gotta go downstairs and watch some Game of Thrones with my dad :')
