Sherlock

I don't recall what fics started me in on this fandom.  I have no idea how to find rec sites in this particular fandom.  But this is what I've found...

All of these are Sherlock/John

Northwest Passage Kryptaria. Seven years ago, Captain John Watson of the Canadian Forces Medical Service withdrew from society, seeking a simple, isolated life in the distant northern wilderness of Canada. Though he survives from one day to the next, he doesn't truly live until someone from his dark past calls in a favor and turns his world upside-down with the introduction of Sherlock Holmes.  95K

Cooperative Principle by bendingsignpost.  As the newest instructor at St. Bart's, John has been explicitly warned to never do Sherlock Holmes any favours. Too bad the sex is so good. 56K

Behavioural Modification by bendingsignpost.  Whatever it took, he was going to make this work. 24K

Nothing to make a Song About by EmmaGrant01.  When Sherlock returned from his faked death, John could not forgive him for the deception and broke off their friendship. Ten years later, John returns to London in search of yet another new beginning. Sherlock, not surprisingly, is waiting.  37K

The Faithful Compass by KeelieThompson1.  John is five/six years younger than Sherlock and is studying at university when he meets a bored, addicted Sherlock. But Sherlock still needs to become sober, learn his skills and become the consulting detective while John needs to train, find his place in the world, and in the army, to become the man that can match Sherlock. The problem is they may not be able to become these people while in a relationship with each other.  258K

To Light Another's Path by BeautifulFiction.  Sherlock comes down with the flue.  "Teaching John to observe seems to be a losing battle, but when Sherlock falls ill and submits himself to John's care, will he realise that there is more to life than the science of deduction?

Bring me back to Life by yalublyutebya.  After being injured on the Front, John Watson is sent to Craiglockhart Hospital for psychiatric treatment and finds himself sharing a room with the mysterious Sherlock Holmes.

Two Years as Your Interpetor by prettyvk.  John isn’t scared of Sherlock or of the adults around them. But he is scared of this Message. He is scared he’ll be there, in two years, right next to Sherlock, watching and unable to do a damn thing when he dies. Because the true Message was, “Don’t expect to make a career out of this interpreter thing. I’ll die in two years.” For the first time in his life, John wishes he’d never taken the Cassandra Tests.  (Ignore the character death warning... I don't like stories that end sad)

Shopping List by Moranion. John Watson keeps on meeting people he can't manage to keep. Sherlock Holmes seems to be no exception to this rule.

Crazy for Love by prettyvk.  It starts with five words: "Is my father really dead?"  Or maybe, that's how it ends.  There exists a podfic, and the podfic's sequel is being recorded.

Adventures of a single girl in London by EarlGreyTea68.  Sherlock Holmes keeps choosing flatmates who fancy themselves to be bloggers.  32K

Gravity by WendyBird.  On the three year anniversary of Sherlock's death, John finds something unusual in his flat. He shouldn't be so thrilled to be finally going mad. But is he? Oh god, yes.  63645

A small miscalculation by SailorChibi.  Thanks to Sherlock's inability to resist satisfying his curiosity, he's been turned into a small child of about seven (or five, depending on who you're asking) years old. Rather than let Sherlock be taken to a laboratory, John volunteers to look after him. After all, he's had to look after a man-child, how hard can a child-child be?  58K

The Real Meaning of Idioms by feverishsea. 
After two weeks away, John finally texts Sherlock. He doesn't expect Sherlock to respond. He doesn't expect Sherlock to keep texting him. And he really doesn't expect things to spiral out of control so rapidly.  28K

A Study in Winning, of the Tennis series, by Jupiter_Ash.  John and Sherlock are professional tennis players and it’s Wimbledon.

Eight Days a Week by cassyl.  When a handsome consultant shows up at the office, John thinks his biggest worry is being made redundant. Little does he know, things are about to get a lot more complicated. AU inspired by Office.

A study in winning by Jupiter_Ash.  No matter where you put Sherlock and John, they click. Including the Winter Olympics

The real meaning of idioms by feverishsea.  After two weeks away, John finally texts Sherlock. He doesn't expect Sherlock to respond. He doesn't expect Sherlock to keep texting him. And he really doesn't expect things to spiral out of control so rapidly.

Naked and Stripped Raw by Nikoshinigami.  In the six months since John's marriage to Mary, very little has changed and still nothing is quite the same. With Sherlock run down with exhaustion and temporarily suspended from Yard involvement, a retreat to the ruin scattered cliffs of Mounts Bay may hold the cure more than just the physical ailments of man.



WIP's

Illusion of Free Will by LeopardWrites.  It’s hard to keep track of all these different Sherlocks at different ages. It seems like just last week he was convincing a seven year old Sherlock to smile because it was his birthday and then fighting the awkwardness of him asking if John was married in the future.  Probably because it was...  65K+
The Loss of Flesh and Soul by deuxexmycroft. Five years after John Watson puts the murderous Sherlock Holmes behind bars, a vicious copycat killer emerges.

Audio fic

Last updated: 09/17/15 (US date format)

Ya know what I've realized?  there's a lot of short audio fic out there, and little in the way of long fic.  I'm apparently length-ist.  I'm lucky to find a fic more than a few hours long, but I only listen to fic that are long.  I'll more likely read a shorter fic than listen to one, but I think I'm length-ist there too.


JinJurly's list is here
amplification is here
fellytone is here
Archive of our Own has an option to hunt by podfic, but it's not the easiest of searches... I'd google over using their search program.



Harry Potter:

WIP  Drop Dead Gorgeous,  by maya, read by mcollinknight.  Last I knew, there were six chapters.  HP/DM.
DDG's parallel story, The Way We Get By, is told from Draco's point of view.  It is currently at 2 chapters.  No author descriptions that I can find, so I'll attempt my own.  Harry (veela) and Draco are aurors.  The rest is pure fun.

WIP Forgive those who trespass
by lomonaaeren, read by rhicauldrie.  Harry was convinced he had an ordinary, if inconvenient, life.  Then Ron and Hermione vanished into the Department of Mysteries.  And it seems the only person who might know where they are is a mute Draco. Four chapters so far.

Reparations, by Saras_Girl, read by 6shotamericano: Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places. HPDM.  Also found on jinjurly's site here.  I think this story is absolutely fabulous
Followed by Foundations: The sequel to 'Reparations'.
When one door closes, another one opens... with a bit of a push. Life, love and complications. HPDM slash.

Tissue of Silver by Fearless Diva, read by fayjay.  Draco is going to die.  Harry is determined to keep it from happening.  I don't do the story justice in that description, but fayjay reads it very well.  As to how long it is... eight sections?  HP/DM.

Transfigurations by Resonant: Harry returns to England to help start up Hogwarts again. H/D.  Maybe 17 chapters?

TURN by Saras_Girl, read by Queenie_Mab.  20 years down the road, Harry wonders what would have happend if he'd done things differently.  Then he finds out.

WIP Stealing Harry, by sam_storyteller, read by various. 
When Sirius and Remus go looking for Peter Pettigrew, they make a wrong turn and someone else finds him first. Eight years later, Sirius owns a book store and Remus manages it for him. When Harry stumbles into the store and they find out the truth, they decide it's time to be Stealing Harry. Last I saw, there was 1 chapter.  SB/RL.

WIP  A Year Like None Other, by aspeninthesunlight, read by various. 
A letter from home? A letter from family? Well, Harry Potter knows he has neither, but all the same, it starts with a letter from Surrey. A letter that sends Harry down a path he'd never have walked on his own. It will be a year of big changes, a year of great pain, and a year of confronting worst fears. It will be a year of surprising discoveries, of finding true strength, of finding out that first impressions of a person's true colours do not always ring true. It will be a year of paradigm shifts. And from the most unexpected sources, Harry will have a chance to have that which he has never known: a home ... and a family. (A Snape adopts Harry fic.)
Last I saw, there were 56 chapters. 


Supernatural RPS:


Things I learned my Freshman Year of College by Ashley, read by Celtic_Cookie.  Jared/Jensen.  Really cute.  Jared enters college and decides he may need to steal all his roommate's socks (sock on the door means do not enter).  Spends a lot of time hanging out in other people's rooms.  Including the RA's room down the hall.  :)

Queensguard by aramuin, read by various. 
It's been nearly three years since the war against the alien race known as the Others changed the world and nearly four months since they were beaten back by Earth's natural superweapons, the dragons. Jared's looking forward to reconnecting with his best friend and picking up life where he left off. It doesn't seem much to ask but after three years, how much has really changed? And are the secrets Jensen's hiding better left alone? Oh, my heavens!  this fic is marvelous!  Dragons rock!  The alien description made me a little hesitant about this fic, but it's written very well and absolutely delightful.

In from the cold by ladyjanelly, read by paraka, diurnal_lee and kronos999Jared works in a free clinic. One day he meets Jensen, a remarkable, damaged young man who lives on the street.

When you care enough to hit send: Jared/Jensen.  written by Chash, read by Juice817.  Near as I can tell, it was written as snippets of their lives in random order, and the story developed around that.  There are two different orders, the order written and the chronological order (see here).  I found it a very comforting story.  They meet in college.  Jensen didn't exactly realize he had a thing for jailbait, partially because the jailbait in question is six feet tall.  Poor Jensen.  Jensen is never hooking up with a prospective student again...

In the Army Now, by cfriskney, read by yasmine32068
Jensen Ackles joins the ARmy to help pay for college.  He meets the drill Sergent called 'big daddy, and decides he probably should have just taken a job flipping hamburgers.

Kept boy by poisontaster, read by superstitiousme.   Jeffrey/Jensen.  Nice and LONG fic.  Still a WIP, and it's currently recorded up to the 83rd chapter.  Good reader.  It is a slave fic, but that's almost more the world they exist in than the type of fic it is.

Smoke and Lightning, Heavy Metal Thunder, by bloody_adorable and eviltwin, read by Fartinminney or by Kreutzmarie.  I don't have a reader preference; they both read well.  The audio is a WIP, up to 20 chapters by now.

Starstruck, written and read by fayjay.  
a J2 movie AU based on 'Notting Hill', featuring misunderstandings, secrets, lies, twists, turns, comic books, Japanese-Ethiopian fusion cuisine, a lesbian wedding, several fabulous movies that really should exist, heartache, tequila, some exceptionally awful blind dates, hot boy-on-boy sex, and true love. All told in 42,000 words.

Do I seem Bulletproof to You? by Fleshflutter, read by Cath.  Jared/Jensen.  When he can’t find any acting work, Jared takes a job as driver and bodyguard to Jensen, who is an extremely expensive prostitute with a bad habit of attracting crazy people. This one can get a bit squicky.

Then again I just might by Anyothergirl415 and Cha.  It's not totally wierd to be in love with a person's voice, is it?  If it is, Jared's pretty much okay with being weird.  Jensen is a DJ and Jared... well, he suddenly loves his radio.

Reanimated by Tigbit, read by exmanhater.  In which Jared manages real estate in Heaven and Jensen works as Hell’s attorney in Death Trials. Extreme ambiguity and a distinct lack of beer push Jared to accept a different kind of job in a hotter, more southern locale. The boys meet. Hi-jinks and grocery-stealing in Hell ensue. Featuring saints on book tours, love on trial, after-life bureaucracy, and sin. Surprisingly not as cracktastic as it sounds.

Hearthstone by mollyamory, read by exmanhater.  Jensen lives alone in the small town where he grew up, dividing his time between the bookstore he runs (with no customers), the bar he half-owns (but doesn't run), and the big, expensive dream house (that he bought with tmoney he doesn't know what to do with).  He lives quietly at the edge of the circle of friends he went to school with, and avoids everybody else -- until the new guy in town crashes a bike in front of Jensen's store and wedges himself into Jensen's world.

Someone you might have been by fleshflutter, read by fayjay.  A J2 AU in which Jared is a secret agent and Jensen is support tech.  I just finished this.  Oh my god, Fleshflutter has put me through the wringer again.  Still reeling.

Sherlock Holmes (BBC series):

The Road Less Traveled by verityburns, read by sly_hostetter and podfic_lover.  Sherlock realises that John's dating habits involve an unacceptable level of risk... what if he meets an unusually tolerant woman and ends up getting married?

The Progress of Sherlock Holmes by ivyblossom, read by cellardoor.  Sherlock is head over heels for John, but you wouldn't know it by looking at him.  I didn't think I'd like the narrative style, but the longer I listened, the more I fell head over heels for this fic.

The Quiet Man by ivyblossom, read by finnagain.  "Do you just carry on talking while I'm away?"

Crazy for Love and the James Holmes' Cronicles by prettyvk, read by bagofthumbs.  It starts with five words.  "Is my father really dead?"  Or maybe, that's how it ends.

Ink your name 'verse by prettyvk read by axemeaboutaxinomancyThe metaphor is imperfect but still workable. If my long term memory is a hard drive, then my short term memory is RAM. The hard drive became read-only following the illness. New data is stored in RAM and can be used while I remain awake. Going to sleep – ‘turning off’ – wipes the RAM, returning the system to what it was prior to the illness.

Dear John by WendyMarlowe.  With Sherlock dead, John eventually (under duress) makes a profile on an online dating site.  And falls into a long-distance relationship with an enigmatic partner who reminds him of Sherlock in all the right ways...

Nature vs Nurture by earlgreytea68, read by jinjurly.  The British Government accidentally clones Sherlock Holmes. Which brings a baby to 221B Baker Street.

Merlin:


Student Prince written and read by fayjay.  A modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews.  I loved this!  fayjay is, as always, awesome!

Drastically Redefining Protocol by rageprufrock, read by lunchee.  In which Prince Arthur meets Merlin in a broomcloset at a hospital and all hell promptly breaks loose. 


Arcane Asylum by new_kate, read by sophinisba.  Modern AU.  For the last twenty two years Uther Pendragon has been waging war on magic.  Now his son Arthur has been framed for a magical crime and sent to the prison for magic users.  Arthur is instantly targeted by the inmates, but mysterious top dog Merlin takes him under his wing.  They form a bond, and Merlin decides to help Arthur clear his name. I liked this... despite the flashback that lasted several hours.  Necessary, but disconcerting.

Radiant Under Every Sort of Light
Sew Right



Teen Wolf: (like most of the fandoms I follow, I've never actually seen the cannon)

Play it Again by metisket, read by mothlights.  In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

Sacred in the Ordinary by idyll, read by knight_tracer.  The Pack, after college, graduate school and the starting of careers, comes back to Beacon Hills. Nothing's gotten less complicated after all this time.

Cupboard Love by mk, read by rhea314. He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain.  If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.

Alpha Spikes by starbeast, read by rhea314.  Alphas are like royalty and are offered their choice of any age eighteen-and-up virgin Omega for each year's heat season, as a 'thank-you' to all they've done for their compounds throughout the year. Derek is an Alpha and...yeah, Stiles. Stiles is an Omega. And still a virgin. In every way. And he's just turned eighteen. This...is not his day.

Cornerstone by vendelin, read by jinxy.  Suffering from PTSD, ex-Marine Derek Hale moves back to Beacon Hills to open a bookshop and find a calmer life. That’s where he meets Stiles, completely by accident. Stiles is talkative, charming and curious. Somehow, despite the fact that he’s blind, he’s able to read Derek like no one else.

It's called a heart boner by remainnameless, read by RsCreighton.  In which everyone and everything ever in the history of the world is trying to ruin Derek's life before he can finish his master's, especially his evil twin sister, his weird ability to start relationships on accident, his best friend's obsession with his sex life, people with dimples, his subsequent inability to end relationships, manipulative sorority queens, and oh yeah, that stupid drunk ass freshman he keeps running into.ORThe five times Derek saves a very drunk Stiles and the one time Stiles saves him back.

(Not so) Pure Imagination


Stargate Atlantis:

The Neighborly Detective and the Tragic Woobie Widower written by elayna, read by cookiemom6067.  Is adorable.  Detective John Sheppard starts his new life in suburbia and becomes steadily captivated by his neighbor, Dr. Rodney McKay, and his son Timothy. Really adorable fic.

Fair Trade Complex



X-Men:

Paper Monsters by clocks, read by analise010.  Charles meets Erik Lehnsherr, his favorite novelist of all time at a coffee shop, but doesn't know it's him, and Erik just criticizes his own writing in front of his biggest fan.


Rise of the Guardians:

From the Darkness we Rise

J2 AU Completed Fics *Repost*
Last updated: 3/4/13 (US date format)

Original commentary: In case you haven't noticed me adding to my Audio Fic list recently, I've discovered a new fandom.  All derived from tired eyes and refusing to stare at a screen for any more hours than necessary, and H/D isn't terribly flush in the way of audio fic.  Didn't have any clue what the fandom was when I started listening to it, which is just the way I like my fanfic.  They're in the order I've read them in...So, the fics.  All Jared/Jensen.  And I'm trying to stick to AU on this list.

Completed

Things I learned my Freshman Year of College, by aleia.  Really cute, and my favorite so far.  Jared enters college and decides he may need to steal all his roommate's socks (sock on the door means do not enter).  Spends a lot of time hanging out in other people's rooms.  Including the RA's room down the hall.    This is the core of the College 'Verse fic.  There is also College 'verse from Jensen's POV, Summer 'verse, and Second 'verse (which I've only just located!  yes!) and several other ficlets associated with the original 'verse.  I shall organize and link better later.  College 'Verse and Summer 'Verse come in audio format.  For links to Audio, please see my Audio Fic list.

In From the Cold, by ladyjanelly.  Jared works in a free clinic. One day he meets Jensen, a remarkable, damaged young man who lives on the street.

The Doors of Time by felisblanco.  It’s not like he doesn’t try to fit in and make friends, he really does. It just seems like nothing he does is good enough for them. If he smiles they blink. If he speaks they stare. And whenever they see him coming they get this panicked look in their eyes like they want to run away and they don’t even know why. Jensen knows why. It’s the same thing that makes his dad worry and his mom cry. That makes Nana tell his parents he’s going to Hell, not even caring that he can hear her. It’s what makes him ‘weird’.

When you Care Enough to Hit Send, by Chash.  They meet in college.  Jensen didn't exactly realize he had a thing for jailbait, partially because the jailbait in question is six feet tall.  Poor Jensen.  Jensen is never hooking up with a prospective student again...  If you want Audio, please see my Audio list for link.

A Lesson a Day (Could Kill You), by lycaness.  Jared has an abusive past, and when his boss sends him to learn how to become a flair bartender, that past is brought back in a storm of pain when he falls in love with his teacher, Jensen. But Jensen has his own problems and soon their attraction causes nothing but trouble, especially when Jared tries to face his fears.

Everyone Experiments in College by indysaur.  When Jared starts in college his new roommate is Chad and new friends are Sandy and Sophia; who apparently likes to blog about his sex/romance life (or lack thereof)... and then he meets the TA and lacrosse captain; Jensen.

In a Mirror Distorted and Indistinct, by felisblanco.  They keep calling him beautiful. Pretty. “Come on. Look this way. Give us a smile, Jensen.” He smiles and blinks against the flashes, fighting the urge to lower his eyes, to hide the blush burning under layers of makeup. Sweat runs down his back, his hands tremble.He’s not pretty, not beautiful. He’s small and weak and pathetic and one day they’re all gonna figure it out. One day…

Veterans of the Psychic War, by Kalireynn and Kellwyntar.  Along the front, soldiers waged war at terrible cost against an enemy that was truly inhuman.  The tides of war turned on the work of battlefront Psions and their Guardians, elite warriors who could change the course of a battle with their skill and power.  At the most desparate moment in humanity's history, two men would face the battle.  Apart, they are broken and incomplete.  Together, they might just save the world, and maybe even themselves.

The Sinister Nature of Cul-de-Sacs by goddamnbatman.  Recently divorced, successful landscaper Jensen Ackles thinks he's moved into the house of his dreams. Trouble is, the yard next door is a nightmare, and rumor has it that its owner is even worse. Jensen's friends and neighbors are convinced he lives next to a ruthless and reclusive killer, but the more Jensen learns about Jared Padalecki, the more convinced he is that the rumors are wrong. But would he bet his life on it?

After Ever by Blynnk.  Jared is a kindhearted, hard-working guy plagued with low self-esteem. Stuck in a prolonged adolescence, he is enabled by dysfunctional personal relationships. When he meets and begins to date Jensen online, Jensen first is a friendly voice in the dark, but when they finally meet face-to-face Jared realizes Jensen is nothing like he expected. It becomes Jared's challenge to earn Jensen's hardened heart, to overcome the barrier Jensen's deafness creates between them, and to discover that first we must love ourselves before we can be truly happy.

Man in the Water by morrezela.  Jared is too shy and insecure to ever talk to the man that swims in the lake every morning. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t fall in love with him.   .

Three grams by frostian.  Jared Padalecki’s closest friend is Jensen, a hybrid doll he rescued as a child. As they grow up, Jensen takes on the role of tutor and mentor, preparing Jared for the arduous task of entering a prestigious tech in order to continue his father’s tremendous legacy. But the greatest lesson is one that can only be learned, not taught, as Jared realizes that just because a creature isn't made of flesh and blood does not mean it can't have a soul.

Early Mornings and Late Nights Under an Overcast Sky by sxeraven: Jared’s girl (Sandra) breaks up with him. Jensen tries to help. Things go (rapidly) downhill from there... then fester... then get better?Unfinished sequel... Mid-Afternoon Sun on Texas Sky.  let me know if you see any chapters after 36.

Fated to Pretend or the Weekend Jensen was Jared's girlfriend by Katja: Due to extraordinary circumstances Jensen offers to spend a weekend pretending to be Jared’s girlfriend. Jared soon realizes that he got a lot more than he bargained for.

Stockholm by kenda1l: Jared wakes in the cold and dark, bound. The victim of a kidnapping, the only silver lining is that he's not alone. Jensen, a man he'd met and lusted after only the night before, has been dragged along with him as 'collateral damage'. Now, they have to discover a way out of their basement prison before their captor realizes that Jared and his multi-million dollar father have been estranged for years. Together, they begin to plan their escape, but things aren’t as they seem, and as things take a turn for the violent, secrets threaten to tear apart their budding relationship.  8 chapters

Seek to know no more by chiiyo86: Jensen is a transparent – hard to notice, easy to forget, he’s spent his whole life fading into the background. Jared is a psychometrist – he can read bits and pieces of thoughts and memories from people and objects. They had casual sex a few years ago, and when they meet again Jensen is surprised that Jared remembers him. They have sex again, but Jensen is wary of Jared’s ability and generally not very good at relationships. In the meantime, people with abilities are getting killed, a mysterious journalist visits Jensen and Jared, people are following Jensen, Jared has a vision he can’t explain, and everything becomes very complicated and very dangerous.7 chapters, but something doesn't seem quite finished about this story...

Bring the Rain by sinestrated: In a future torn apart by war, Jared and Jensen were two orphans just trying to survive in the filthy slums of Dallas, Texas. But when Jared was kidnapped and nearly sold to a prostitution ring, Jensen signed himself over to the military’s Supersoldier program, effectively giving up his life and his memories so that the government would keep Jared safe. Now, fourteen years later, Scout Padalecki has arrived on a military base in Boulder, Colorado, intent on finding a Supersoldier with hazel-green eyes, but when he meets Captain Ackles, it quickly becomes apparent that things aren’t going to be as easy as he’d hoped. Struggling with his own emotions and a Jensen who doesn’t remember who he is, Jared must find a way to save them both – before the war destroys everything they’ve worked so hard to build.  10 chapters

Airborne by insane_songbird: In a world where three mighty powers are at war, Jared lives a comfortable, if unremarkable, life as a Healer in a little valley as yet untouched by the battles and pillaging. His days get a lot more interesting when a Harper, one of the winged soldiers of the Overlords, literally crashes at his feet. Bound by his healer's vow, Jared takes in the injured man, over time earning his trust and companionship. Little does he know how fast Jensen's presence – or absence - will turn his life upside down. Jared and his best friend Chad begin an epic journey that will see them cross paths with the one warrior, who is so unlike any others of his kind, once more.  It was a beautiful fic.  27 chapters

A Slow Process of Understanding by arabia764: It's a world like this one except for the all-powerful State that's very firmly in control and, oh, the fact that slavery is legal. Jared had never really thought about it, or the fight for freedom going on around him, he was too busy enjoying his privileged life as an actor on a sci-fi show. But what is he meant to do when he's forced to permanently bond to a slave he doesn't want just because he made one silly, drunken mistake? 12 Chapters, guaranteed to drag you through the emotional wringer, but totally worth every moment.

Pandora's Box by ratherastory:  RPS based on the movie Avatar. Marine Jensen Ackles thinks his life is over when he becomes paralyzed in the course of duty, but when his twin brother is killed in a robbery everything changes. Struggling to make sense of his loss, Jensen decides to take his brother's place in a mission on the distant moon of Pandora, where a private corporation has a large mining concern. New cutting-edge technology allows Jensen to form a psychic link with an avatar — an artificially-grown body composed of the DNA of both humans and the Na'vi, the aliens native to Pandora— and thus interact directly with the otherwise hostile, if beautiful planet.In exchange for the spinal surgery that will allow him to regain the use of his legs, Jensen agrees to infiltrate the Na'vi. Once he's there, though, he becomes close with the tribe, particularly the chief's son, Jared, his guide and mentor. Under Jared's tutelage, a whole new world opens up for Jensen, along with the first blossom of love. But when tensions between the Navi and the military branch of the human operations run too high, Jensen is faced with having to make a choice between the world he comes from and the world where he has found love and where, for the first time in his life, he truly feels at home.

The Sealgaire and the Dragan by hunters_retreat.  Jared Padalecki wanted to be just like everyone else.  A new town, a new school, and only his best friend from high school knew anything about his family.  Life was perfect, especially when he met his new roommate, Jensen Ackles.  Everything is settling in place in Jared's life, up until the day his parents show up in town, not to cause him trouble, but to remind him of who he is and give him a warning.  What's a guy to do when he's a modern day dragon hunter and there is a dragon to slay?

Species Interaction by Morrezela. Despite making themselves known to the world over a century ago, the seraph race was still shrouded in mystery. All Jensen Ackles had ever wanted was to get into one of their academies to learn about them and their care. All Jared Padalecki wanted was to find his mate

Hail Mary by Rythmsextion.Three years since becoming the first openly gay coach of a Division I collegiate football team, Jensen Ackles is hired by the Dallas Cowboys as their new quarterbacks coach. Though happy to return to his hometown and eager to return to the NFL, Jensen's new position puts him directly in charge of former teammate, Jared Padalecki, with whom Jensen had a somewhat complicated personal relationship ten years before. Jensen also finds his new position comes with a price when the organization makes it clear they intend to use Jensen's sexual orientation to further their own status. When an old high school friend steps back into Jensen's life, the situation becomes increasingly complicated as Jensen struggles to balance his professional life with his private while attempting to control his reawakening feelings for Padalecki.

Semiautomagic by cala.  When Chris Kane, detective with the Special Investigations Unit, asks Jensen to consult on a gruesome murder case, Jensen doesn't know what he's getting himself into. Within days he has to find the killer, solve the case and try to stay alive, as apparently more than one powerful creature is interested in the outcome of this case. Or rather with the case never being solved.

The Ghost by hunters_retreat.  Thirty years ago, humanity was changed.  The magic they scoffed at as nothing more than fairy tales and children's illusions was real and the barrier that separated them from that and the world of the fae came crashing down.  In the wake of that phenomena, new government agencies were created to deal with the problems of magic in the modern world. Humans relied on the men and women of the DMI to protect them from the abuses of magic.  But when Agent Padalecki finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation with a civilian on his scene, he realizes it's not just any civilian.  The intruder is the Ghost, a fae that even the high Seelie court fear.  Faced with a murder investigation and a possible connection to a string of killings, Agent Padalecki must find a way to work with the Ghost to stop a killer before he can do the unthinkable; start a war between humanity and fae.

I will Love You 'till my Muzzle Turns Grey by spnkinkfan.  'Wolves don't do well without their mates.  After Jared's rejection, Jensen struggles to lead his pack.

It walks like a Duck by inalasahl.  Jared hates bots, especially his sister's neighbor Jensen.  But he'll have to accept Jensen's help if he wants to get his sister back after she goes missing.

First Taught the Chosen Seed by reading-is-in.  Novice Samuel, orphaned ward of the Church and the One State, is a student at Central College with a luminous career as a lawyer ahead of him. He may not have a family, but he has friends, a great mind, and a protective mentor in the form of Elder James Murphy. One day, a charismatic green-eyed foot-soldier breaks into the College on an act of petty theft – Sam reports him, and though uncomfortable at his treatment, puts it behind him and quashes his sinful attractions to the stranger. It works – until a Resistance plot to kidnap Samuel is narrowly thwarted and the soldier – now an Elite Guard – is assigned to protect him. As if that wasn't enough trouble, Sam begins to manifest abnormal abilities. Sam and his mysterious protector – who calls himself Dean –are soon on the run from both the State and the Resistance, making strange alliances, and ever pursued by the enigmatic General R Q Zachariah, Head of State Security, who seems to know more about their importance than either of them ever dreamed.

The War Prize by Meri-Oddities. Summary: Jared, Monarch of Valdesco, did not want to get married. He especially didn't want a political marriage to someone who was part of the negotiations for peace. There was no way he could deal with a spouse whose culture was completely alien to his own.
Jensen Ackles was appalled to be the War Prize his country offered up as reparations. He sincerely did not want to go from being the High Chief's youngest son to being without status. And mostly, Jensen did not want to live in a country that was so technologically advanced that he had no hope of beginning to understand it.
But, like a lot of things in life, neither one of them was going to get a choice about it.

I think Therefore I Am by oschun.  Dean is a privileged member of the dwindling original population of North America that has been decimated by viral outbreaks and low birth rates. Human clones have been created to bolster the work force. They are a segregated underclass relegated to the status of soulless drones by their Geneticore creators and by powerful religious groups like the Mothers Union, who consider themselves to be the blessed vessels of God’s greatest creation: the human soul.
This is a story about the complicated relationship between two boys who are forced to grow up into hardened soldiers by a society teetering on the brink of civil war.

Angel in Blue by nicslash.  Officer Ackles is a hardened city cop who finds himself in the worst situation, staring down the barrel of a loaded gun. When Jared rescues the officer, Jensen owes Jared his life... or perhaps, it’s the other way around.

Eldrich City by beadslut.  Jensen's country elf upbringing could never prepare him for what he would discover in the City. Following his ward on a frustrating quest, he finds beauty in architecture, unexpected friendship and a challenge to the vow he's lived with most of his life. It's really nothing like the Hill.

Compass for my Heart, by Rana.  Jensen’s world is poisonous and dying, but when he’s given the chance to heal it in exchange for a small favour, he’s skeptical. When it turns out that favour is escorting a spoilt, duty-shirking prince from one kingdom to another so he can get married, Jensen can’t really see how it matters, on a saving-the-world scale. And then he actually meets Jared, and it still doesn’t make sense. But if it saves his world, then Jensen guesses it doesn’t really matter. He’s always been good at doing his job.

Palladium by Zubenfic.  Jared Padalecki was sixteen when Earth was invaded, shattering the world as he knew it. A year later, he was stunned when the leader of the human resistance, Jensen Ackles, was captured by the aliens, crushing the humans' last gasp of hope. Since then, Jared has made it his life's mission to rescue and restore Jensen, even if he never expects to get the chance to do either. But when that chance unexpectedly comes, Jared has to overcome the obstacles that he's put in his own way before he can work with his former hero, who's been a captive for years. If they can overcome the ways they've both been changed, they might be able to figure out a way to stop the invaders and maybe even save the world.

Love Lies Burning by anniespinkhouse.  Jared Padalecki heads up one of the largest companies in the mix and bake market. He is ruthless, devious and successful. His personal assistant, Alona, will tell you that he’s an asshole. His best friend Misha will agree. When a Padalecki factory burns down, killing the homeless squatters inside, Jared finds out he has a stalker and his life starts to spiral out of control.

On these Ashen Wings by Sinestrated.  Long ago, a bitter war was fought between two great dragons—brothers: Deioryn who wanted to enslave the other dragons, and Damos who wanted only to protect them. In the end, Damos managed to seal Deioryn away, but at the cost of his own life. Jared grew up listening to the legends, but as an adult he now pays them little heed—until he runs into a lone dragon named Jensen who has been Sealed, permanently trapped in his human form because of a terrible crime he committed in the past. Jensen has his own secrets to keep, but as Jared gets to know him better, he soon comes to realize that Jensen’s connections to the ancient legends are deeper than he is willing to admit—and war may be closer than any of them ever imagined.

Superheroes Suck by cleflink. Jensen hates superheroes. Having grown up with not one, but two, of them in the family, he's more than aware of just how much having a spandex-clad alter ego can cock up the rest of your life. Luckily, his own powers tend towards the more passive, hippie florist side of things which - while embarrassing - means that all that superhero crap is someone else's problem. Or it would, if not for the frequent interference of superhero-obsessed friends, hostage situations, hotshot new superheroes and irritating relatives. Not to mention a boyfriend who has the uncanny ability to go missing whenever bad things are going down somewhere else in the city. Sometimes, Jensen's life is kind of bullshit.

Short:
Charades by Bertee. Jared is a super villain, Jensen's a superhero. They fall in love in their civilian identities, neither of them aware of the other's extracurricular activities. Jared is faced with a choice when his teammates manage to capture and unmask Jensen: his friends and the life he knows or the man he loves

Glow series by Cleflink.  In which Jensen is an empath and Jared is insanely cheerful and completely incapable of leaving well enough alone.


Possibilities You Don't Even Know You've Got by Poor_Choices. Teen superheroes and the high school newspaper reporters who stalk them. Or, the one where Jensen is kind of Superman and Jared is kind of Lois Lane, but not really. 7300 words

Sam/Dean

Don't know where to put my Sam/Dean fics, as I havne't collected enough for their own list:

The year of letting go by Lynsey.  A hunt gone wrong leaves Dean Winchester barely alive, and helpless for the first time in his life. Can Dean let go of his need to be the big brother and let Sam help him heal, or will the complicated feelings both brothers have been hiding from each other pull them further apart than ever? As Dean’s deal comes due, both Sam and Dean will have to let go of their fears, or face losing each other forever.  Ok, not J2... but I don't have a list for Sam/Dean, so you'll just have to forgive me.  This is an incredibly emotional fic (for goodness same, Dean's blind and deaf), but ooooh so good.

Random update
Big Bang challenges are fabulous.  I love them.  and it's a sad thing that I am about keeping up with the current one.  I will have no wonderful stories to read by the time it's over, at this rate.  But I just read a story about a boy with wings... There was much wonderfulness.  And before that was the story about a guy who signed up with a government program to erase his memory and become a supersoldier so that the one he loves will always be provided for... Took Jared a while to track him down.  Ah, fic is fabulous.  I need to update my lists with the new stuff...

On the more depressing side of things, I just watched Dear John.  I thought it was a sweet and rather dreamy movie until it decided to get depressing, and while it technically had a happy ending, I didn't quite manage to recover.  At least they had years to cope.  I probably had thirty minutes to run the gamut of emotions.  Joy.

Adventures in Original Fiction


And now I'm hunting for the fun stuff in original fiction.  :)
Last updated May 6, 2013

Complete:
Intrigue at the Crowned Jewel by IceraMyst.  Here at the Jewel, we offer you beautiful men with split personalities, mind-reading courtesans, betrayal of the highest order, dragons, unicorns, ill-fated romance, and more magic than you can shake a stick at. What more could you want? Slash.  And that description intrigued me not in the least, but I read the sister because my sister told me to, so I'll attempt one of my own.  It's about a courtesan who is normally a dom, but due to a last minute emergency becomes the substitute for one of his gentler co-workers.  The very skittish and unusual client makes giving up his usual role totally worth it.

Undesirable by Velvet_Mace.  At the height of the Cold War, vampires came out of the closet and staged a coup to save humans from destroying themselves. All the Vampire protectors wanted in return was a simple monetary tithe and, of course, blood. But not George Handle's blood. He tastes foul. Maybe. Possibly. Okay, that might be a lie. Shit. Getting home from a business trip becomes very hard when every vampire around is suddenly after your skin.

Technicolor Something by Zebbie.  An architecture project finds wheelchair-bound Matt paired with Abel Moser and he's determined he won't become that perfect souvenir for the bohemian student out to experience it all and make the world a better place along the way.

Chemistry by myheartisinohio.  Chemistry is the story of Travis McCall, a seventeen-year-old track star and straight-A student with a crippling case of depression, and enough medication to keep him appropriately numb. When he meets Garen Anderson, the charming, musician son of Bill, Travis' mother's boyfriend, everything changes. Travis is caught up in the love affair of a lifetime, trying to balance the extremes his life has come to; his annoyance with his military-school-brat stepbrother and his love for his beautifully catastrophic boyfriend. His severe depression and his role as "the perfect guy." Not least of all, being a gay boy in a very, very straight world

The Falcon Banner by crvboy. A lone man picks up a battle standard cast down three hundred years before, beginning a journey that will lead him to find the lost fleet and a forgotten ship at the edge of nowhere. Darien Taine must accept his role, guiding his crew on the long road to free their people from Amsus tyranny. Uncovering along the way the sins that led to humanity's downfall, and reforging alliances long thought forgotten. Three hundred years of slavery, of persecution and of tyranny are at an end.

Incomplete:

Captive Prince by freece.  Damen is the true heir to the throne, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity and sent to serve the prince of a rival nation as a pleasure slave. (oh my word, there was just another update and I am completely and utterly in love with this story!)

The Last Pure Human by Twisted Hilarity.  Prince Kasan has a problem. His mating heat is almost over, and unless he has sex, NOW, his life is over as well. Which is why he's so happy to meet a small, human male...

Spliced by flighty_dreams.  In a world where clones are created and sold as commodities, Matt Muldane can't resist purchasing an intriguing slave.

Teiresias series by delyth penrose.  On the night they'd met, a decade ago, when Rhys had still been a child shaky with a summer fever and all his meager strength was focused on not passing out in his layers of velvets and silks, he had somehow misunderstood the ceremony of fealty to the heir. He'd fully expected the tall, intimidating young knight had come to fight him -- to guard the kingdom from his weakness and insufficiency as the nearest in line to a throne that needed an older, stronger heir than a six-year-old boy.

The Blue Prince  by DancingGrimm.  A battle-scarred soldier, a lonely Prince and a magnificent painting are key to a conspiracy that could destroy a nation.

Nothing to Lose by Cattails. I was depressed, drunk, and suicidal. The hot redhead in the bar seemed like a good idea at the time. The morning after, however, has made me rethink the wisdom of my decision to go home with him. The ring around my finger isn't helping.

The Coquette and the Thane by Anihyr Moonstar.  Whatever Kedean expected when he signed up for this job, attending to the every whim of a moody, arrogant, and sometimes suicidal nobleman with a bad case of a witch's curse was not it—nevermind falling in love with him.

A Balance of Harmonies by frogs_of_war.  Kurt is sleeping with Emil's lover, but Emil won't give Peregrine up. He has a unique solution for when one true love isn't enough. "All was fair in love and war and Emil was waging both."

Sailor General's Superior and Corsair's Crown by IceraMyst.  Calentine is having a bad day. His head's bashed in, his ship is sunk, and the most important man in the kingdom just fell in love with him in the worst way.

To the amazing women in my life
This has been one of those days that I spent about six hours laughing and enjoying life with a joyful and confident woman, and I am once again reminded of how much I am blessed in my friends.  If I have not reminded you often enough, you are beautiful, smart, and dearly loved.  You enrich my life (even without our daily talks).  Thank you for being who you are.

Really need to get around to planning some sort of reunion...

Audio Fic

I've found some audio fics.  Still hunting, though.   Good search terms:  "audiofic" or "podfic"


Ya know what I've realized?  there's a lot of short audio fic out there, and little in the way of long fic.  I'm apparently length-ist.  I'm lucky to find a fic more than a few hours long, but I only listen to fic that are long.  I'll more likely read a shorter fic than listen to one, but I think I'm length-ist there too.


Corruption, by Beren, read by Beren.  Voldemort has captured Harry and for his own twisted reasons has chosen not to kill him outright. Revenge in the Dark Lord's mind requires a fate worse than death and Harry is about to find out what that is.

WIP 
Drop Dead Gorgeous,  by maya, read by mcollinknight.  Last I knew, there were six chapters.  HP/DM.
DDG's parallel story,
The Way We Get By, is told from Draco's point of view.  It is currently at 2 chapters.  No author descriptions that I can find, so I'll attempt my own.  Harry (veela) and Draco are aurors.  The rest is pure fun.

WIP
Forgive those who trespass by lomonaaeren, read by rhicauldrie.  Harry was convinced he had an ordinary, if inconvenient, life.  Then Ron and Hermione vanished into the Department of Mysteries.  And it seems the only person who might know where they are is a mute Draco.  Four chapters so far. 

Reparations, by Saras_Girl, read by 6shotamericano: Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places. HPDM.  Also found on jinjurly's site here.  I think this story is absolutely fabulous
Followed by
Foundations: The sequel to 'Reparations'. When one door closes, another one opens... with a bit of a push. Life, love and complications. HPDM slash.

Tissue of Silver by Fearless Diva, read by fayjay.  Draco is going to die.  Harry is determined to keep it from happening.  I don't do the story justice in that description, but fayjay reads it very well.  As to how long it is... eight sections?  HP/DM.

Transfigurations by Resonant: Harry returns to England to help start up Hogwarts again.  H/D.  Maybe 17 chapters?

WIP
Stealing Harry, by sam_storyteller, read by various.  When Sirius and Remus go looking for Peter Pettigrew, they make a wrong turn and someone else finds him first. Eight years later, Sirius owns a book store and Remus manages it for him. When Harry stumbles into the store and they find out the truth, they decide it's time to be Stealing Harry. Last I saw, there was 1 chapter.  SB/RL.

WIP 
A Year Like None Other, by aspeninthesunlight, read by various.  A letter from home? A letter from family? Well, Harry Potter knows he has neither, but all the same, it starts with a letter from Surrey. A letter that sends Harry down a path he'd never have walked on his own. It will be a year of big changes, a year of great pain, and a year of confronting worst fears. It will be a year of surprising discoveries, of finding true strength, of finding out that first impressions of a person's true colours do not always ring true. It will be a year of paradigm shifts. And from the most unexpected sources, Harry will have a chance to have that which he has never known: a home ... and a family. (A Snape adopts Harry fic.)
Last I saw, there were 56 chapters. 

JinJurly's list is here 
amplification is here
fellytone is here



In the way of non-Harry Potter:

Stargate Atlantis:

The Neighborly Detective and the Tragic Woobie Widower written by elayna, read by cookiemom6067.  Is adorable.  Detective John Sheppard starts his new life in suburbia and becomes steadily captivated by his neighbor, Dr. Rodney McKay, and his son Timothy. Really adorable fic.

Supernatural

The Time Dean Was Sam's Girlfriend & Jess Entered the Winchester Family Business, written by fleshflutter, read by sadcypress.  Apparently birthday wishes have more power than regular wishes, but this is one of those "be careful what you wish for" fics.  Dean and Jess switch bodies for a night.  Highly entertaining, keeps you laughing, but it's only an hour long



Supernatural RPS


Things I learned my Freshman Year of College by Ashley, read by Celtic_Cookie.  Jared/Jensen.  Really cute.  Jared enters college and decides he may need to steal all his roommate's socks (sock on the door means do not enter).  Spends a lot of time hanging out in other people's rooms.  Including the RA's room down the hall.  :)

Queensguard by aramuin, read by various.  It's been nearly three years since the war against the alien race known as the Others changed the world and nearly four months since they were beaten back by Earth's natural superweapons, the dragons. Jared's looking forward to reconnecting with his best friend and picking up life where he left off. It doesn't seem much to ask but after three years, how much has really changed? And are the secrets Jensen's hiding better left alone?  Oh, my heavens!  this fic is marvelous!  Dragons rock!  The alien description made me a little hesitant about this fic, but it's written very well and absolutely delightful. 

In from the cold by ladyjanelly, read by paraka, diurnal_lee and kronos999Jared works in a free clinic. One day he meets Jensen, a remarkable, damaged young man who lives on the street.

When you care enough to hit send: Jared/Jensen.  written by Chash, read by Juice817.  Near as I can tell, it was written as snippets of their lives in random order, and the story developed around that.  There are two different orders, the order written and the chronological order (see here).  I found it a very comforting story.  They meet in college.  Jensen didn't exactly realize he had a thing for jailbait, partially because the jailbait in question is six feet tall.  Poor Jensen.  Jensen is never hooking up with a prospective student again...  

In the Army Now, by cfriskney, read by yasmine32068Jensen Ackles joins the ARmy to help pay for college.  He meets the drill Sergent called 'big daddy, and decides he probably should have just taken a job flipping hamburgers.

Kept boy by poisontaster, read by superstitiousme.   Jeffrey/Jensen.  Nice and LONG fic.  Still a WIP, and it's currently recorded up to the 83rd chapter.  Good reader.  It is a slave fic, but that's almost more the world they exist in than the type of fic it is.

Smoke and Lightning, Heavy Metal Thunder, by
bloody_adorable and eviltwin, read by Fartinminney or by Kreutzmarie.  I don't have a reader preference; they both read well.  The audio is a WIP, up to 20 chapters by now.

Starstruck, written and read by fayjay.   a J2 movie AU based on 'Notting Hill', featuring misunderstandings, secrets, lies, twists, turns, comic books, Japanese-Ethiopian fusion cuisine, a lesbian wedding, several fabulous movies that really should exist, heartache, tequila, some exceptionally awful blind dates, hot boy-on-boy sex, and true love.
All told in 42,000 words.

Do I seem Bulletproof to You? by Fleshflutter, read by Cath.  Jared/Jensen.  When he can’t find any acting work, Jared takes a job as driver and bodyguard to Jensen, who is an extremely expensive prostitute with a bad habit of attracting crazy people.  This one can get a bit squicky.

And just what does it mean when young people start inheriting powers based off of magical creatures and finding soul-mates? HP/DM, WIP



J2

United States of Jensen, by takobella. Jared needs a new place to live, and fast. Salvation comes in the form of a cute redhead named Danneel in his English class. Living in a huge spacious house with four other roommates seems like an ideal solution, but trouble has always found itself around Jared Padalecki, and this time is no different.

Jensen Ackles has been trying to fit in with everybody else for as long as he could remember.

Pets
Knowingly or unknowingly, main characters become pets.  There aren't enough of these for me to be picky, so I'm just collecting what I find.

Bittersweet potion:  Harry's animagus is a cat.  Snape adopts the "stray." novella

The Company You KeepThe war is over. Severus Snape wants to be left alone. Draco wants Snape. Snape decides a stray cat is a better companion than a Malfoy, given what he learned about both Malfoy and Potter in the days after Voldemort had captured Harry. 1 chapter.

Crup-tion of the Not-So-Innocent. If you thought that befriending Draco Malfoy would be easier than defeating the Dark Lord you’d be wrong. Harry Potter has to grow another pair of legs and a forked tail before he can break down the frosty barrier blocking the way into Malfoy’s heart (and his underpants).  2 pages

Cunning as a Ferret:  Brief one-shot.  To get revenge, Pansy turns Malfoy into a ferret.  Guess who finds him.  

Dark Phoenix:  Harry's animagus is a Storm Phoenix.  He ends up adopting Snape (It's so cute how discombobulated Snape is with the bird following him around all the time), and they develop a rather adorable relationship.  Sadly, it is a WIP, and there is entirely too much "normal" life present after the first six chapters.  I liked the Snape and birdie interlude.  16 chapters as of 2/08

*new* Endangered Familiar: After the war, all he wanted was some peace and quiet. What he got, was a penguin that brought the exact opposite.

Everybody Wants to Be a Cat by Lychee. Harry, in his Animagus form, finds himself getting tickled by his dear Potions professor. He discovers some very strange and disturbing things about himself…and another person. 4 chapters, complete, HP/SS.

The Familiar:  Harry is turned into a frog by a poorly made potion.  Snape takes care of him.  Apparently, being a frog is a calming influence. short

*New* He was He and I was Bunny: The war is over and “eighth year” is about to begin at Hogwarts. But for Harry and Draco, nothing is quite the same. Harry’s looking for an escape, Draco’s looking for a friend. Does a little black bunny hold the answers for both of our boys?  Four chapters, entrancing and adorable.

Kitty Kisses:  Will Draco’s new friend bring him the love of his life?

Life After:  Harry retreats to Grimmauld Place after the war's end. When a white ferret turns up in his garden, things start to get interesting. 17, complete

Mr. Bunny Comes to Tea:  Post-war, Harry's invited to a tea party. Mr. Bunny shows up as well. Warnings: Cuteness overload and no actual smut, but there are brightly colored pictures.  complete, short.

My Little Kitten:  One-shot where Harry!kitten gets adopted by Tom Riddle.  Do not read deleted scenes.

The Nine Lives of Severus Snape:  A black kitten ends up getting rescued from an overly enthusiastic Fang by Remus. short.

A Panther's Heart:  Harry gets caught in his animagus form and is purchased to be Draco's pet.  31 chapters, complete

Peorth:  "After Hagrid dropped Harry off after getting his supplies for first year, things went slightly different. Beaten and not looking at all like himself Harry ends up at Hogwarts."  Harry gets taken in by Snape.  Author needs a beta.  20 ch, wip.

I found this discussion, and completely cracked up.  Had to share, and made people laugh.  A day later, I am still amused enough that I'm actually going to post something on my lj.  Don't stop at the question.  Read the replies.  I don't imagine it's worksafe.

MCA
MCA, as painless_j terms it, is "magically changed age".  Another identifier for these fics is "de-aged", but I'd like to add the prospect of aging to both of those definitions as well.

It irritates me that I can't find an MCA list out there.  Perhaps I'm not using the right search terms.  I've seen baby lists, but that's not only what I'm going for (and there are lots of poorly written baby fics).  I'm just as willing to see something like "Big" or "Freaky Friday". 

Feel free to help me add to my list.


Babysitter, by Spye.  H/D.  "The Curses cast on Draco at the end of fifth year are removed incorrectly, leaving him in a state requiring that he be taken care of.  Who better than Harry Potter?"

Charles Alexander Tompkins by Taran.  Attempted murder, hexes gone wrong and an old man bring Severus Snape back to Hogwarts as a different man -a 16 year old man.  HP/SS, 15 chapters, Complete.


Child of Mine by Lina Inverse the Dramata.  Harry's turned into a baby and the Potions Master is stuck having to take care of him, but now things are different. 17 chapters as of May '06

The Curse of Fate by Mistress Nika.  Immortal Harry, after watching friends and family die over thousands of years, only wants to join his loved ones in death. Believing he's found a way, he sends himself back into the body of his infant self, vowing to change his fate.  23 chapters as of January '08. 


Death Eater Takes a Holiday  Dumbledore decides the staff deserves a break without having to worry about things for a while.  And while he's at it, he might as well remind them what their students are going through.  A few more teenagers get added to the list staying for winter break.  85 chapters, WIP

Decreso Aetas, by Harry's Gryffindor Angel. Summary: "An accident occurs in Charms class that leaves Draco looking after a...slightly different Harry...How will they live through it, and how do others take the change?"  HP/DM; WIP

Fire and the Rose:  Hermione and Snape switch bodies.  It was an accident, but will Voldie understand?  reminiscent of "Freaky Friday."  I'm not entirely sure switching bodies works, but technically a student must act an adult, and an adult a student.  HG/SS 40 chapters, complete.

Harry Potter and the Ferratilis Potion: At the Dursleys the summer after Sirius' death, Voldemort sends werewolves to attack Harry. Taken to Grimmauld Place by his rescuer, Severus Snape, Harry devises a disastrous plan to rescue Sirius from the veil, resulting in his being transfigured into a baby. Snape is the only one who can brew the potion to restore him, and is the only one to realize that Harry still retains his 16 year-old-mind. Over the summer and the first two potions which restore him to age eleven, Harry begins to feel that Snape is the only one who understands and can protect him. Is he right or has his deaging muddled his thinking? WIP, 25 chapters as of Aug '07

An Innocent Gift, by Amber Dream. WIP. Author's summary: "Due to Voldemort's... insanity, Severus is forced to take an unidentified potion. When the effects of said potion take place, what does Dumbledore do? Send him to the one person he feels he can trust of course. Not slash." Snape is turned into a baby. 7 chapters as of June '07.

The Living Years by DementorDella:  "Severus Snape makes the ultimate sacrifice for Harry Potter. No, not that sacrifice! The other one! And finds Sanctuary in the most unexpected of places."  35,000 words, complete.

Lullaby of a Dragon by Mysticalsoul.  Something happens in potions, and Harry is turned into a child. Draco has no choice but to take care of him, and everyday Harry gains one year, changing his mind, his outward appearance and his soul.  9 chapters as of January '03.

Malfoy Child:  by Vorbiza.  Potions accident turns Draco into a four-year-old and Harry takes care of him for the next four months.  21 chapters, complete.

A Nick in Time by Tira Nog. Harry and Severus, as teachers, end up being turned into seven year olds (due to a meddling spirit). This is not slash. Seven year old Snape is the sweetest thing ever! And so very different from Harry. 

Tempus Reversit by mskatonic.  When a magical accident in the heat of battle sends Harry and Snape back to 1943, it's a golden opportunity for a fresh start. But destiny is not so easy to escape, especially when Tom Riddle starts taking an interest...  HP/SS and some SS/TR.  I hate evil Riddle.  3 chapters, complete.

To The Moon by Constant Viligance.  Some angst, but so sweet and happy. Draco gets cursed, and turns into a five-year-old... he stays at hogwarts for the summer, Harry takes care of cute little Draco. HP/DM, complete, 5 chapters.

Reincarnated by WingsofaDream.  Harry Potter defeated the Dark Lord in his Fourth Year and lost his own life in the process. However, he came back as the son of a high ranking pureblood noble and he remembers everything from his last life. HP/DM, complete, 26 chapters.

Remembrance and Renewal by Avatar Arkmage and Nigel T When the negligence of the Dursleys nearly kills Harry, his soul wanders, and discovers truths about Severus Snape, his true father. Can they now unite against a common foe, or are their wounds too deep? No pairings.

Draco Abuse
I fear my draco abuse list has been expanded to other characters.

Draco Abuse:
I am particularly fond of Draco Abuse fics. I love reading the fics where the author has deprived him of sight, sound, limbs, mind, etc. I'm slowly compiling the stories I've read; this is far from a comprehensive list.  I read too much, and just can't remember...  I am restricting my list to stories that I can read (plentiful mistakes/poor story line irritates me), and what I have so far are stories that I've kept b/c I've enjoyed them.  I welcome suggestions, though.

A Thousand Beautiful things: Ok, so this one isn't taken forcefully. Draco still has to learn to live life without speaking. Due to evil fathers' curses, drastic measures must be taken. Is strongly reminiscent of the story of the 7 brothers who were turned into swans and their sister, who was determined to save them. Mute, H/D, Complete

Ambivalent Lucidity: Poor Draco's lost both his parents, and not long after that, his mind went as well. MPD, H/D, WIP 

Blood and Nails: Draco is missing years of his life.  It's more of a mystery story.  H/D.

Concubine: Draco is a Concubine, a magical creature something like a veela, but will actually conform to its mate's wishes.  After being subjected to years of slavery to the Dark Lord, Harry finally gets around to killing the evil b. and rescuing Draco.  WIP

Conquering the darkness: Draco is blind.  it's sweet.  HP/DM. finally finished!!

Cunning as a ferret:  To get revenge on Draco Malfoy, Pansy turns him into a ferret. Ferret-Mafoy runs off into the school where he is found by the one person he least wants to find him.  So it's fluffier than most of the things in this list.  I'm still debating whether or not it fits.

Depths of Winter: Harry is living an ordinary muggle life, which is disrupted by a rather terrible crash. Draco is paralyzed, H/D, Complete

Draco in Darkness: Draco is blind. Harry notices the reading charm is rather monotonous, and keeps putting Draco to sleep. He decides to take over. Blind, H/D, Complete

Dream that the Gods are Good: Voldemort's destruction has disastrous consequences on more personal levels than the wizarding world in general. Spell damage, H/D, WIP

Forgive those who Tresspass: Harry was convinced he had an ordinary, if inconvenient, life. Then Ron and Hermione vanished into the Department of Mysteries. And it seems the only person who might know where they are is a mute Draco Malfoy. Featuring Pensieves, mutilation, torture, orientation denial, and other fun things. H/D, 34chap Complete

Intended: Silly Draco, brewing potions for the Dark Lord and thinking it will all go as plan. When does it ever go as planned when it comes to Harry Potter? Mate, H/D, Complete

Irresistible Poison: Draco accidentally doses himself with a potion. love potion, H/D, Complete 

Knives Out: Several years after the death of Voldemort, a depressed Harry Potter decides to rejoin the world of the living, only to run into his old nemesis Draco Malfoy in a Muggle gay club where things are not as they seem. This one is lovely, but sad. H/D, Complete

Oathbreaker: Draco's part fish.  I'm not sure why this fits here, but it's my list.

Oscillate Wildly:  Draco is in a mental ward.  Fascinating, but disturbing story.  Complete.

Per Solum Lacuna: Linked diaries heal two lives. wounded leg, H/D, Complete

Promises to keep: Draco loses his legs in a landmine during the war. He's a traitor, Snape's been in prison... and we need some fixing up of some very messed up lives. Complete

Redeem me:  Poor abused draco.  I'm not as fond of actual abuse when it comes to Draco, but in this story he has a lot to recover from.  H/D, Complete

Rejoicing In their Strength: I'm hesitant to add draco abuse of the real abuse kind, but this one was calling to me.  Lucius went mad after the war, and he has killed Narcissa and confined Draco to Malfoy Manor while he does magical experiments on him. Draco escapes at times by astral travel. During one of his journeys, he is astonished to find Harry Potter, who vanished after the war, living in the Forest of Dean.  H/D, currently four chapters, but this author updates every few days and hasn't left a WIP yet.

Thicker than Blood: Draco needs a magical link with someone else to live. wounded, H/D, Complete

To the Moon: Draco's been turned into a child. It's incredibly sweet... MCA, H/D (not chan), Complete

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow: Draco's lost his memory, and no one knows what he's given up except him. He'd better remember fast, because he's the only one who can protect himself. Memory loss, H/D, Complete

Waters of March: The war is over. The main casualties? Snape and Draco. One is dead, the other is... unresponsive. Spell-damage/coma, H/D, complete



Harry Abuse: Similar to Draco abuse, but also includes home life abuse if it is extreme.

Blinded by the Dark: Blinded due to the Dursleys. Snape ends up taking him in. Blind, no slash, permanent WIP?

Broken Mind, Fractured Soul: Beautifully written story which starts when Harry is still young, and due to his treatment at the hands of many different people, his mind slowly fractures into many different personalities. MPD, H/D, Complete with Sequel WIP

Damaged: Voldie won. He took over. He made Harry his... pet? personal torture toy? Draco makes plans towards remedying the situation. Issues, H/D, WIP 

Equilibrium:  When Harry comes to Hogwarts, Snape has to reevaluate first impressions.  We have history of abuse.  Complete, sequel is WIP.

Incurable: Harry has not only been abused by the Dursleys, but has also been sent off to a school for juvenile delinquents. He's found not too terribly long after. AU, Abuse, H/D, WIP

Punished: Harry is saved by an unlikely hero. legitimate abuse, H/D, complete 

A Reckless Frame of Mind:  Harry is cursed: he's forced to always tell the truth, but the spell will make everyone think he's lying.  Perhaps Psyche Diver Draco can fix the problem.  H/D, 13 chapters, complete

A Secret History:  Another of Warholhp's very powerful stories.  Turns out Harry has forgotten a lot, but as he remembers, it is explained.  H/D, 5 chapters, complete.

Voice in the Dark: The last thing Harry Potter ever saw was Draco Malfoy casting the Killing Curse. When he wakes, his world has changed. Blind, H/D, WIP 


Snape:

The Birthday Present Snape gets ... sick.  Fun with being exposed to rediculous potions mistakes every day, and between that and everything else that's going on, it's way too much.  Complete, 85 chapters 

Lack of Morals by Kat Reitz and Tzigane.  "He'll sort Slytherin, not Ravenclaw." "Well, I suppose someone must sort there."  Let's see... how to describe this.  Severus Snape grows up, loves and loses, and Voldemort is evil.  It ends happy.  SS/DM and others, complete, lengthy 8 chapters.

Complete
So, I finally got around to sorting through fav fics (evil computer crash stole so many of my links, so I am determined this will not happen again).  This list consists of the complete fics.  Now, I had to teach myself all about links and lj_cuts and I managed to teach it to myself in both Rich Text and HTML because my computer is evil and decided to restart itself when I was almost done in HTML.  


Fics make me happy!Collapse )

You are England!

You have a very fun, sarcastic sense of humor, and

time. Grr

The next time either of you go into town, would you buy me a package of ... what were they... chex? the tastless little crosshatch snack things... Or grahm crackers. If you'd get me either, i'd pay you back. I bought some absolutely delicious marmalade at the craft fair the Princess and i went to on saturday, but i've discovered i have nothing to put it on. Elfling pulled out grahm crackers, which is why I know I like that on it. I thought, surely those wierd grahm cracker like things mother bought me wouldn't taste so bad if the marmalade were on them... i was wrong. They're still awful. They have now aquired an Eat Me sign in the kitchen. I should check from time to time and see if anyone else manages to stomach them.
Oh, I have a "hamster" (which happens to look nothing like a hamster... it's just a ball of fluff. but dont tell it that). ask to pet it next time you come to visit. it's a very soft fluff ball.
question... for the security setting, what's the difference b/w "private" and "friends"?
Reminders: Speed and 28 days, Princess. Oh, and i've discovered why the choral concert is on a thursday night (april 21st). cause once upon a mattress is on that friday. April 22 and 23 for Once Upon a Mattress (whichever day you prefer), 12th Night April 1st. Oh, and I owe C $5.
Ya know, i'm amused at this method of writing reminders to myself. I think i may have finally figured out a use for Livejournal... my online memo pad. Test 12-3 Monday, do research paper, quiz sometime this week... I can do it, i hope.
