Rectober #15: Multi-Fandom Recs  
I was sick at the beginning of the month, which mean I had two days with nothing to do but read fic! I took the opportunity to finally read a few of the fics that had been on my to-read list for ages. It was both wonderful and immensely satisfying! Here are some of my favorites from the month in a bunch of different fandoms. :D

[The Avengers: Steve/Tony]Title: All It Does Is Rain Series (2 Fics)
Author: theladyingrey42 | favicon theladyingrey42
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17 overall
Word Count: 19,909 total
Content/Notes first time, bottom!steve
Summary: In which the Avengers rebuild their home, superheroes are more than just the things that made them super, and communication is hard.
Sweet little series with a wonderful Steve and Tony. I liked that the two fics are from different POVs, so we really get inside the character's heads. Great characterizations, and a lovely connection between these two.


[Sherlock: John/Sherlock]Title: A Cure For Boredom
Author: favicon emmagrant01
Pairing: Sherlock/John, John/OMC, John/OFC, John/OFC/OFC, John/OMC/OFC (Please note that Sherlock is present for all of the interactions between John and the OCs)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 81,665
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!john, bottom!sherlock, light D/s, dom!sherlock, sub!john, threesome (m/m/f and f/m/f), light bondage, blindfolds, first time, sort of open relationship, rimming, dirty talk, double penetration (female), voyeurism, exhibitionism, public!sex
Summary: They'd never talked about sex in the year they'd known each other. Well, that wasn't quite correct: Sherlock had never said a word about sex; John had bemoaned his personal dearth of it on many occasions.
I must say that I'm normally not a big fan of threesome/polyamory/open relationship type fics, so I was really unsure bout this one going into it. But, like everybody had assured me, it was brilliant. This is quite *my* Sherlock and John, but I loved them nonetheless. I adored the relationship between Sherlock and John here, the love and trust, and fear and uncertainty of the other's feelings. The sex scenes were smoking hot, but even hotter was how in control of everything Sherlock was. Even though most of the fic is John getting off with other people, Sherlock is an undeniable presence throughout the fic. I thought the ending was great, and very fitting for this Sherlock and John.


[Smallville: Clark/Lex]Title: Superman For Sale
Author: favicon dm_wyatt
Pairing(s): Clark/Lex, mention of past Clark/OMC and Clark/Lois
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 80,830
Content/Notes: post-rift, future!fic, magic, dub-con, bonding!fic, bottom!clark
Summary: Clark goes missing and Lex tries to figure out why. He ends up "buying" Superman from a kidnapper, who had put him under a spell... Things don't go quite as planned.
Really interesting read! Definitely a little mushy in places and not always the most sophisticated, but I really enjoyed the plot, and I loved Clark and Lex's connection.


[Spartacus: Agron/Nasir]Title: Our Days of Blood and Sunset
Author: aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 11,130
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!nasir, disability!fic (sort of)
Summary: Nasir knows he should not be angry at someone he’d thought lost forever, someone he loves this much who has been hurt this badly; but he can’t help it, either.
Really beautifully written fic that deals with Nasir's understandably complex feelings about Agron's unexpected return from the dead. It all felt so realistic and believable, and it was really wonderful watching both Nasir and Agron deal with the aftermath of Agron's decision, and seeing them work their way back together.

Title: steal me and shield me (Part 7 of the Of Magic and Monsters Series)
Author: favicon venomedveins
Pairing: Agron/Nasir, other background/past pairings
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,051 of 155,638 total
Content/Warnings: AU: Fairy Tale & Fantasy, creature!fic, magic!nasir, werewolf!agron, arranged marriage, rough sex, bottom!nasir, MPREG
Summary: Agron and Nasir are in a race against time as the Wolf Festival approaches and Gerulf's plan begins to be revealed.
Wonderful addition! I liked seeing the Geroff thread wrapped up, but given the introduction of the"Roman" vampires, there is still plenty more to overcome! Super hot, and I adored all of the lovely Nagron moments.

Haha, I knew you would love A Cure for Boredom, no matter how my OCs were involved. I really, really wish she would add the most interesting chapters from Sherlock's pov too. One day...you know. :D

It was lovely to talk to you yesterday (even though your internet had other plans at times). *hugs*

I definitely enjoyed it, though I don't think I loved it as much as everybody else seems to. :D

And yes, it was lovely talking to you too! We'll for sure have to do it again!
