Rectober #6: Multi-Fandom Recs Part 1  
I play around in a lot of different fandoms and I try to check in every month or so and see if anything new has been written or if there are any must-read fics I missed the first time around. I didn't read too much in these fandoms in the past month or so, but what I read, I liked! :D

The John Blake/Bane pairing from The Dark Knight Rises is actually a completely new fandom for me. One of my favorite Sterek authors, Circe6, mentioned that she had written a Blake/Bane fic, and I adored Joseph & Tom together in Inception (as evidenced by my love of Arthur/Eames) and I liked the movie, so I thought I would give it a go. Definitely an interesting pairing with a lot of darker fics. Not a ton written for them (not surprising since they never actually had any screen time together....), but there were a few fics that I really enjoyed.

Title: Sworn by the Noose
Author: favicon gnosiophobic
Pairing(s): Brienne/Jamie, past Cersei/Jamie
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,907
Warnings: first time
Summary: No matter what you do, you're forsaking one vow or the other. After finding Jaime at Pennytree, Brienne must make a choice.
Excellent post-A Dance With Dragons fic that deals with Brienne and Jamie on the road to Lady Stoneheart. I thought the characterizations were really amazing here and the connection between Jamie and Brienne was beautiful and felt very authentic.

Title: Ravished
Author: whiskyrunner | favicon Whisky
Pairing(s): Bane/John Blake
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,061
Content/Notes: established relationship, rape fantasy, rough sex, light bondage, bottom!john
Summary: John comes home late to find the masked terror of Gotham in his apartment.
Super hot fic! I don't read a ton of rape fantasy fic, but I thought that this one was really well written.

Title: Blakes on a Bane
Author: favicon Bambichi
Pairing(s): Bane/John Blake
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 41,365
Content/Notes: AU: Future, AU: Space, cop!john, prisoner!bane, first time, virgin!john, bottom!john, attempted rape/non-con
Summary: John Blake is a cop for the galactic Colonies based on Gotham Planet. He's assigned the mission of acting as security on board a prison transport ship, relocating inmates from the notorious 'Pit' to a new prison complex known as the Fortress.
God this fic was amazing. Wonderful AU that really incorporates the canon characters and motivations really well. Bane and John were fantastic and their connection and relationship development was powerful and perfectly paced. Darker themes without getting too dark, and a wonderful ending.

Title: Metamorphosis Series (2 Fics)
Author: favicon OneWhoSitsWithTurtles
Pairing(s): Bane/John Blake
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 116,792
Content/Notes: bottom!john, attempted rape/non-con, rough sex, size!kink, rimming, talk of switching, withdrawal, light D/s
Summary: Blake has been causing problems for Bane in Gotham City. When Bane finally gets his hands on Blake, he decides to keep him off the streets where he can’t cause any more trouble. Prisoner to a terrifying madman, Blake tries to survive until someone saves him. In the interim, with Blake and Bane often each other’s only company, they decide to learn a little about their enemy.
Probably the best canon AU fics I've read for this pairing! The relationship development between John and Bane is believable and the characterizations feel authentic and believable, without the fic glossing over any of the moral and ideological differences that would stand between them. The chemistry between the two of them is scorching and the sex is even hotter. Wonderful fics.

Title: I Listen for Returning Feet (Part 9 in the Marriage in the Manner of Dwarves Series)
Author: diemarysues | favicon diemarysues
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: G
Word Count: 1,234
Notes: AU: Thorin Lives, established relationship
Summary: “Dance as though no one is watching you,
Love as though you have never been hurt before,
Sing as though no one can hear you,
Live as though heaven is on earth.”
― Souza
Super sweet fic in one of my favorite verses. Bilbo and Thorin are basically just an adorable old married couple who are still crazy about one another. Lovely..

Title: Overtures
Author: entangled_now | favicon entanglednow
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: Hard R
Word Count: 2,637
Notes: AU: Thorin Lives
Summary: Bilbo knows that cities are not built on companionship and the occasional plate of scones.
Funny and sweet fic with Thorin attempted to court Bilbo and, of course, Bilbo is just completely oblivious. :)

Title: Inadvisable and Irresistable Series (2 Fics)
Author: ladyvader | favicon LadyVader
Pairing(s): Joseph Gordon-Levitt/Tom Hardy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,349 total
Content/Notes: RPF, voyeurism, exhibitionism, face-fucking, light dub-con
Summary: Tom gets Joe thinking about the joys of working it for the Camera Phone. // Joe gets a taste of precisely what he was really asking for when he sent Tom that video.
Crazy hot fics. God I am such a sucker for face-fucking.
