I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about this whole internet slash world is visiting author’s pages and getting their story recommendations. Of course – no one does this better than the fabulous Torch, (who writes the best M/K slash ever written), and I thank her for pointing me in directions I would not otherwise have explored.
In that spirit, I’d like to pass along some of my own favorites – both in my "home" fandom and in some others.
If you’ve wandered in here, you’ve probably already been to the Sports Night Fan Fiction Archive. If not – get thee over there ASAP. There are a lot of great stories there. But my absolute favorites are:
Emily Brunson’s "Dancing" series. There’s nothing better on a rainy day than to print out these long form stories and read them under the covers. Em takes the boys to a very angsty place in these pages, where a serious challenge to one of them is the key to bringing them together. Beautifully written, deeply emotional and impossible to put down.
Mona Ramsey’s "Wordplay" series: Mona’s latest SN story series, starting with "Synoymous" is an absolute joy, I think especially for we Danny-fans. Casey’s never had him more adorably baffled. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
If you're a Sports Night fan, you must be an Aaron Sorkin fan -- so you're probably already watching his excellent new drama series on NBC. If not -- start immediately! Sorkin's got a knack for writing very slashable buddy characters. In WW, the pair most often spoken of is Josh/Sam. This is a very, very new fandom -- with only one story I'm aware of at this time, written by Anne Higgins (who also writes wonderful Professionals and other slash). But recently a discussion and fiction list have been started. If you're interested, send a blank EMail to WestWingSlashFanficfirstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're a slash fan you've probably already heard of The Professionals. If not, listen up. Bodie and Doyle are one of the great classic slash pairs of all time -- and this is a fandom with literally thousands of stories going back 20 years -- many of them absolutely incredible. Check it out by visiting the URL's below.
The CI5 Homepage is a great place to start for information about the show and the characters. It can be found at: http://www.rhineriver.com/CI5/. There's a mailing list to join if you're interested.
The Circuit Archive contains a very large collection of Pros Slash fiction. Without permission I won't link you to it, but after the http:// type in solo4.abac.com/CircuitArchive/CircuitArchive.html -- and you'll get there just fine. My personal fave authors are Ellis Ward, O. Yardley and Jane (Rainy Days series -- not the AU stuff).
I’m a Mulder/Krycek babe from the day I discovered slash. And I’ve checked out some Buffy slash featuring Angel – but I just never liked him paired with any of the other guys from that show. Well, luckily for me, Barbara Webb has stepped up to the plate with a brilliant idea, wonderfully executed. Her story "The Witching Hour" pairs Angel and Krycek – a match made in, well, not heaven – more like the creepy kind of dark back alley both of these leather clad guys are known to frequent. All I can say is yum.
This show gets my vote for "Slashiest New TV Series of the Season." (Last year’s vote obviously went to Sports Night) X-Files fans in particular should check out Carter’s new show, which echoes the darkness and conspiracy themes of XF as well as a challenging quest for the lead character, Tom Hobbes. All that’s just fine and dandy – but what really tripped my trigger from the very first ep was the chemistry between the 2 leads, played by Scott Bairstow and D.B. Sweeney. As Hobbes and Pinnochio, two men thrown together by fate and united seemingly only by their shared enemy, these guys are both terrific. And some of the looks that pass between them – omigod. Hot enough to melt the fillings in your teeth!
So far I’ve only found two Harsh Realm slash fics out there, and happily they're both very good:
"Running" by Grey. You may know Grey from many wonderful X-Files M/Sk stories, as well as work in other fandoms. "Running" can be found at the Complete Kingdom of Slash site listed under "Harsh Realm". Grey tells me there may be more to come. Cross your fingers.
"Light of Day" by Amatia. A short but bittersweet snippet, posted on the allslash list at e-groups. You have to join the list to read the posts. Once you're on the list, you can look the story up at message number 3125.
Harsh Realm gen fic
"Tilt" by Megan Reilly. This is a wonderful X-Files/Harsh Realm gen fiction crossover story.Since I love Mike Pinnochio, I can forgive him for being distracted momentarily from Hobbes by memories of a certain blue-eyed redhead whom he encountered in Harsh Realm once upon a time. Especially when the writer is as talented as Ms. Reilly. Travel over to the Wonderful World of Make Believe Archive for this one - currently listed on the "what's new" page. Enjoy!Please – if you know of any other HR slash (or even good gen fic) out there, or are writing any that needs a home, let me know. It’s my latest obsession, and it must be fed or I’ll probably – oh, I don’t know --- DIE!!!
