The Vampire Diaries Fic Recs  
I used to watch Vampire Diaries fairly regularly and was a pretty staunch Damon/Elena shipper. I stopped watching sometime last season (I didn't have as much free time and I just got bored) and while I still love Delena, I've found that when I ship I adore is canon, I don't really have an interest in reading fic. It might just be the case with my het ships, or with ships that I wasn't already reading by the time the become canon. Who knows.

Either way, lauren3210 recced a Damon/Alaric fic for Rectober, and I quickly read as much as I could get my hands on. Here are my favorites. :D

In the Notes section of each entry I have different tags, so if you are looking for something specific (like "vampire turning" for example) just ctrl+f and enter your tag and it should highlight the relevant entries!

Alaric/Damon

*NEW: 11/25*
Title: Kiss With a Fist
Author: ellensmithee | favicon Ellen Smithee
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,196
Content/Warnings: hate!sex
Summary: A missing scene after Alaric punches Damon at the Grill (1x17 "Let the Right One In").
Hot little ficlet with hate!sex in an alley. :D

Title: Five More Minutes
Author: pleasebekidding | favicon pleasebekidding
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,862
Content/Warnings: established relationship, somnophilia, rimming
Summary: A significant problem with relying on a human to satisfy your sexual needs on an ongoing basis is that they need to sleep, for hours at a time, when there are orgasms to be had.
Super sexy fic, with a bored Damon taking advantage of a sleepy Alaric.

Title: In the interests of full disclosure
Author: pleasebekidding | favicon pleasebekidding
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,290
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!alaric, implied switching
Summary: Alaric and Damon have to come clean to Elena, before she gets any more attached. Warning: Low-grade Elena bashing ahead.
Fun and hot fic and really barely any Elena bashing.

Title: Before I Tumble Homeward
Author: dametokillfor | favicon dametokillfor
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,207
Content/Warnings: implied bottom!damon
Summary: Set post 2x22, Damon decides the best way to deal with everything is with a little kidnapping, home invasion and cookery. Of course, he’s also quite happy with Alaric’s alternate ideas.
Sexy fic dealing with the fallout from season 2 and them dealing with their grief. One warning, the POV changes within the text with no dividers, which was confusing at first, but still worth a read.

Title: Apparitions and unseen things
Author: et_in_arkadia | favicon Ark
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,610
Content/Warnings: ghost!alaric, past relationship, major character death (canon), implied switching
Summary: Alaric's on the couch, across from Damon in his armchair, arms crossed, watching him. It's surreal not because Ric's dead but because he'd rarely ever sat like that without a drink in his hand. It seems unnatural.
God this was so gorgeous and just completely heartbreaking.

Title: The End Of Everything
Author: et_in_arkadia | favicon Ark
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,967
Content/Warnings: established relationship, vampire turning, switching, bottom!damon, bottom!alaric, light bloodplay
Summary: It's the last night they'll ever be like this.
God this is so beautifully written and I adored Alaric and Damon here! Their relationship was wonderful and I loved the switch of having Alaric want to be a vampire, and the gorgeous portrayal of that process.

Title: We did it when we were young
Author: pleasebekidding | favicon pleasebekidding
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon, background Elena/Stephen
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,581
Content/Warnings: AU: High School, AU: Human, underage, first time, bottom!damon, child abuse
Summary: Alaric has been dragged to Mystic Falls for senior year. He meets Damon Salvatore and the rest is history.
Interesting and wonderfully written High School Human AU. Loved their relationship in this and Alaric's parents were just so awesome!

Title: You Can't Always Get What You Want and sequel An Education in Bourbon... or The Art of Seducing a Teacher
Author: kachera | favicon kachera
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,488 and 5,895
Content/Warnings: light bloodplay
Summary: Damon saves the day and has a crisis of conscious - which he takes care of with alcohol and Alaric.
Sexy fics! Loved their "relationship" here and the incorporation of the bourbon in the second fic was awesome!

Title: Lapis and bourbon, amen
Author: pleasebekidding | favicon pleasebekidding
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon, background Elena/Stephen
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,581
Content/Warnings: established relationship, switching, vampire turning
Summary: Alaric has something on his mind, but he's not talking.
Wonderful established relationship fic that shows Alaric's process as he decides whether or not to become a vampire. Great characterizations and super hot!

Title: The edge of the deep green sea and outtake Something we need to talk about
Author: pleasebekidding | favicon pleasebekidding
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon, background Elena/Stephen
Rating: NC-17 overall
Word Count: 16,189 + 1,968
Content/Warnings: established relationship, implied switching, vampire turning, light bondage
Summary: Damon Salvatore had spent the better part of the last two years trying to convince Alaric Saltzman to let him turn him into a vampire. He hadn’t been a particularly patient human and he wasn’t a particularly patient vampire, but he’d been holding out, keeping his end of the bargain, drinking blood bags. Keeping their secret. Being a good boyfriend.
And now it was all going to go to shit.
Established relationship and spur of the moment turning with all the wonderful indecisive feels. Loved the characterizations in this, they both felt very believable. Plus sexy outtake is sexy!

Title: Alaric Saltzman and the Vampiric Potions Partner
Author: pleasebekidding | favicon pleasebekidding
Pairing(s): Alaric/Damon, background Caroline/Tyler, past Alaric/Isobel, past Damon/Isobel
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,371
Content/Warnings: AU: Hogwarts, AU: Magical, AU: Crossover, AU: High School, Harry Potter crossover, first time, switching, bottom!alaric, bottom!damon
Summary: When Damon Salvatore came back to Hogwarts in seventh year, there was something different about him.
Firm believer in every fandom needing a fabulous Hogwarts AU, and this one fits the bill! Loved their relationship, and I thought it was super interesting seeing the potential differences in Alaric and Damon's personalities at a younger, less jaded, age. Plus, hot!

Damon/Stefan

I love how the lesson we have clearly learned here today is that pleasebekidding OWNS THE STAGE when it comes to Dalaric, lmao! And she deserves it, PBK is my fanfic idol, I love everything she writes! Ark too, I adore her stories.

Fantastic rec list darling!

Oh I know! I feel like I read almost all the explicit fic on AO3, and PBK and Ark were definitely some of the best!!

Wow, Grace! When do you do all the things you do besides the things you do besides them??? I'm impressed by the amount of stories you can read, beta and rec while you are constantly present in fandom and mod a fest. Great job!
wicked smut goddessgracerene on November 24th, 2014 08:18 pm (UTC)
LOL, I don't know how I do it either! ;)
