Reactions and Reviews: Issue 4

It's Raining Men 4 (multi/) My current obsession, CSI Miami :) The 4 stories in this are far too short (my only complaint :) but they're incredibly true to voice. And hot, too! :) I've had this since MediaWest - spent a great deal of time at MediaWest just re-reading those 4 stories. I'm STIll re-reading those 4 stories whenever I get a chance. And I did read the rest once I came up for air - the SG1 stories are incredibly hot, the Highlander/Beauty & the Beast was not only good, but unusual, the Tombstone one is very sweet and the rest are very good even though I'm not into the fandoms. And did I mention the 4 CSI Miami stories? :) [1]

  • Fine by Khylara - CSI: Miami, Speed/H (Excerpt: Speed hadn't been fine for a very long time.)
  • Leap of Faith by VampyrAlex - Mag 7 (ATF AU)/CSI: LV xover - Ezra/Chris, Nick/Gil, Ezra/Nick (Excerpt: Ezra's gaze turned to Nick, who had been listening to the exchange silently. "Nick, if Chris and Mr. Grissom have no objections, perhaps we could share a cup of coffee and reminisce over old times?")
  • Unsinkable by sparkle731 - Starsky & Hutch - Starsky/Hutch (Previously published in A Love Story 5 as "Down With the Ship". This version has been expanded.) (Excerpt: Despite his sheltered upbringing, Ken had heard of men who enjoyed the company of other men that way.)
  • The Heart Wants by Cynthia Drake - Man from U.N.C.L.E. - Napoleon/Illya (Excerpt: Napoleon stalked her, after shoving his prisoner to the floor. She backed around the bed, pointing the needle threateningly at Illya.)
  • The Sun in Winter by L.A. Adolf - Sherlock Holmes (2009) - Holmes/Watson (Excerpt: Watson tossed off the filched blankets, and accepted the invitation, diving under the coverlet which Holmes then flicked back over him quickly.)
  • Nine Days by lbc - From EROICA With Love - Dorian/Klaus (Excerpt: Klaus' homophobia had been a bitter pill for Dorian to swallow and he had come very close to deciding to give up his NATO work and stop chasing the German major.)
  • Salvation by Lyn- Criminal Minds - Spencer Reid/Derek Morgan (Excerpt: "Morgan," I say without hesitation. He's the only one right now that I think I can bear to touch me. I hope the others will forgive me for that. "Derek Morgan.")
  • Waiting For Morning by Lyn - Criminal Minds - Spencer Reid/Derek Morgan (Excerpt: Though it was a year or more in the past now, the specter of Tobias still haunted Reid, like a persistent shadow at his shoulder, a glimmer of a ghost from the corner of his eye.)
  • Giving It Up by Sekhmet - Star Trek Reboot (2009) - Bones/Chekov (Excerpt: Sulu didn't offer to sleep with him and save him from his celibacy, but he did offer to get someone to do it. Pavel managed not to laugh in his face.)
  • Open Season by VampyrAlex - CSI: LV - Warrick/Nick (Excerpt: The idea that a psychopath of Crane's caliber had been living in Nick's attic for that long, watching him, stalking him, violating his privacy... It was enough to make Warrick want to smash his fist into Crane's weasel-like face.)
  • Palm Trees And Flamingos by Khylara - CSI: Miami - Speed/H (Excerpt: Horatio stood in the doorway, his black suit having been replaced by a faded pair of jeans that hugged his legs and the flamingo patterned shirt buttoned just enough to show off a good portion of his chest. "Like what you see?" he asked, a teasing little smile on his face.)
  • Our Turn Now by Bast & Sekhmet - S.W.A.T. (2003 Movie) - Jim Street/Brian Gamble (Excerpt: But Jim and me... it's different. Not only are we well matched and know each others' strengths and weaknesses, there's more to us than just this, what we are right now.)
  • Life Is What Happens... by Dovya Blacque - Captain America - Bucky/Cap (Excerpt: Bucky nodded to him but didn't speak. Those troubled eyes were verging on desperation so Steve touched the tips of the fingers on his left hand to Bucky's flesh fingers on his right and drew a breath, preparing to step into Captain America's shoes for what he knew might be the last time.)
