Starfighter Fic Recs  
Day 14: In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

I recently finally made the plunge and read Starfighter (thanks, firethesound) and then immediately had to go and find fic. I've only read a bit so far, but I figured now was the time to post.

Though, can somebody please explain to me the sex appeal of Deimos? I honestly thought his character was a girl until Chapter 3 when Cain calls him a "he" and he reads like a limp fish to me, so I was surprised to see how much fic there was with him and Cain and/or Abel. I don't see it. Am I the only one who finds him negatively sexually appealing? On the flip side, I thought there would be more Abel/Praxis, because Praxis can get it.

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

♥ = favorite

I have no idea about Deimos. I mean, I think he's an interesting character to play around with writing-wise because so much of his character and backstory is a great big question mark. (And I do ship him with Ethos like whoa, my only Starfighter fic is that pairing with an enormous heap of pining for Cain thrown on top.) But I don't know, the amount of Cain/Deimos fic baffles me a bit, I think because I don't quite get their relationship in canon. It's the smelling thing, mostly, how he's always plastering himself all over Cain and sniffing him and I just... don't know what to do with that. Lol. But this story is what made me stop actively disliking Deimos. The writing and characterization are both so damn gorgeous.

I'm also surprised at the lack of Praxis/Abel fic, especially from earlier on when Praxis was clearly pining and Cain was still being sort of a dick. (More of a dick? He's still not quite a nice character, but he's coming around. Slowly.) I did sort of ship him with Abel earlier on, but as Chapter 4 progressed and Cain started coming around I have all the Cain/Abel feels. <3

If you're looking for recs, let me know. But since talking with you a bit about it I've been reading some of my faves over again and you should definitely read this one. Her Cain POV is spot-on for him being more mature but still wonderfully in-character. It's short, and a little bit angsty but mostly fluffy and I just love it to pieces, it's so so good and I sort of want to flail over it with someone else so you should read it. :D It's my second fave Starfighter fic. (My first fave is Through the Stars by the same author, but it's a 70k emotional bludgeoning that's incomplete and hasn't been touched in over a year. So. I will not rec you that one.)

Yeah, I get the weird smelling/draping thing. And I can totally see Deimos having a thing for Cain, but I just don't see Cain reciprocating. And ehh...I find the amount of Abel/Deimos even more baffling. But I can totally see Deimos and Ethos.

Yes to all of that second paragraph! I was shipping them more early on, when Cain was more of an asshole, but I've definitely officially jumped on the Cain/Abel train. Especially after that dressing down Abel gave Praxis recently.

If you have recs you should totally send them my way! I'll read that one you just recced today! But yes, 70k angsty WIPs that haven't been update in a year are definitely things I slowly back away from. :)
cunning as a weevilfirethesound on January 14th, 2015 06:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, the long one is the sort of painful where you're reading and you feel like your lungs are tying themselves up in knots because you just want so badly for the characters to be okay and things just keep getting worse and worse.

But the shorter one omg I am so excited for you to read it. It gives me all the feels and I flail and smile so hard every time I read it. <3 <3 <3

I'll poke around later this afternoon and see what other ones I can rec you. I think I've got your email. :)
wicked smut goddessgracerene on January 14th, 2015 07:50 pm (UTC)
LOL, yeah, definitely staying far away from that one!

But I just read the other one and OMG it's so great! Cain is so perfectly characterized here! I love all his internal freaking out about what he may have done to fuck things up with Abel.

Deimos/Ethos would definitely work. Deimos/Cain...like not even at all! I do not understand why this is even an option for people. It makes no sense to me. Maybe because Deimos seems to want it and people want him happy? I don't want him *unhappy* but he just doesn't feel like he fits with Cain.

\o/ Yay Starfighter! I also thought Deimos was a girl, LOL! I think he's fabulous. I love his hair, and he's such a creepy little weirdo. I ship everyone. EVERYONE.
wicked smut goddess: Starfighter: Caibelgracerene on January 14th, 2015 06:55 pm (UTC)
LOL, see, I think it's the "creepy, little, weirdo" that's been putting me off! :D

I kept thinking a lot of the characters were girls, only to later be proved wrong, so I think I'm just assuming that everybody is male from now on until proven otherwise...

Read your last comment and LMFAO- they are probably all male (and breed a la matrix - half of them black haired, the other half blond). ;p

wicked smut goddess: Starfighter: Caibelgracerene on January 14th, 2015 07:58 pm (UTC)
LOL, probably!

Praxis can get it = yes. With you on all the other stuff, but, you know, that stuck out. It's like the bad boy sexiness of Cain with an extra sanity + ethics bonus.

And generally agree, both about Deimos (the sniffing...creepy) and Abel/Praxis. Not that I've done a huge amount of hunting (yet) but I'm really surprised it's not pretty popular.
wicked smut goddess: Starfighter: Caibelgracerene on January 14th, 2015 09:09 pm (UTC)
Right? Yes, he's got the fighter hotness of Cain, plus he doesn't seem like a sociopath. ;) I'm so sad I haven't been able to find more stuff with him and Abel, though Cain/Abel is my preferred pairing anyways, so it's not so bad.

just fyi, this groceriesinabag account isn't really active. I'm a-social-construct on tumblr and noirakai is noirakai there if you want to link to active accounts, but NK is the only one of the authors you've got listed who is active with the tumblr starfighter fandom any more.
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on January 15th, 2015 12:52 pm (UTC)
firethesound and birdsofshore are a menace when it comes to Starfighter. They get me in, too! LOL
wicked smut goddessgracerene on January 15th, 2015 04:39 pm (UTC)
Right!? Not that I am really complaining! :D
la, zeitgeist!zeitgeistic on February 3rd, 2015 01:51 am (UTC)
Deimos is such a weird character. I think he's to appeal to the folks super into alpha/omega dynamics? Or yaoi?

Is this series not amazing?!? Cannot wait for FTS to write one.
wicked smut goddessgracerene on February 3rd, 2015 04:01 pm (UTC)
Right?! I'm just not feeling him. Though the a/b/o thing kinda makes sense.

But it's so good! It's been on my list for ages, but FTS saying she was going to write for them gave me the final push to actually get on it!
