July Multi-Fandom Recs  
I was reading all over the place this month. Just a few fics here and there spread across many fandoms. Though the majority of my time has been devoted to hd_tropes (I think I only have 2 or 3 lefts to read!) and indulging in my new Kirk/Spock Star Trek obsession. :D

Title: No Longer the Maid of Tarth
Author: lodessa | favicon lodessa
Pairing(s): Brienne/Jamie
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,118
Warnings: first time, marriage!fic
Summary: His lips were rough but tender against hers. She remembered the night they'd reunited in the rain of that wretched forest, half thinking one another a ghost and the way his body had shaken and the sweet ache as he'd knelt before her, begging. His kisses had been desperate that night and the way he'd pulled away had been jerky and awkward. Since then, he'd behaved chastely as a story book prince, as if chided by a septa. Even tonight he seemed tentative, as if unsure as to whether she might startle away like a doe.
This was just so sweet and perfect. Amazing characterizations and pretty much exactly how I like to imagine their wedding and wedding night would go.

Title: my mouth is full of stars
Author: honey_wheeler | favicon honey_wheeler
Pairing(s): Jon/Robb
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 19,061
Warnings: first time, switching, sibling incest, incest, bottom!jon, bottom!robb, major character death (canon)
Summary: Jon’s always belonged to Robb, in any way Robb would have him, since they were barely more than babes and he was called Robb’s Shadow more than he was called his own name. He’s been Robb’s and Robb has almost been his and that’s just the way things have always been.
This was so freaking beautiful. Jon and Robb's connnection was so powerful and, well, it's canon complaint through Storm of Swords, so the ending is heartbreaking, but in the best way.

Title: Theft
Author: erinye | favicon Erinye
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 124,770
Notes: AU: Thorin Lives, switching, first time, dirty talk, rimming
Summary: Thorin Oakenshield agrees to an alliance of dwarves, men and elves against the enemy approaching Erebor. But he makes some demands and one of them is for Bilbo Baggins to be tried for the theft of the Arkenstone, accordingly to the dwarvish law. Bilbo is taken into Erebor as prisoner and Thorin is going to learn that many things can still be stolen.
This fic is just so freaking good. Intricate and interesting with really wonderful characterizations. Definitely a bit heartbreaking and gut-wrenching in places, but with a beautiful ending that makes all the pain worth it! Wonderful read.

Title: so I can breathe you in
Author: purple_cube | favicon purple_cube
Pairing: Katniss/Peeta
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 28,547
Notes: post-mockingjay, het, first time
Summary: I know this would have happened anyway – Katniss Everdeen (Chapter 27, Mockingjay).
Mrs. Everdeen returns to District 12 with Katniss, while Peeta searches Panem to find a home – and himself.
Really wonderful post-mockingjay fic. Fantastic characterizations with a lovely buid between Peeta and Katniss. It all felt very believable and the sex was hot and sweet.

Title: The Future is X-Rated
Author: favicon Renne
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,758
Content/Notes: barebacking, bottom!arthur
Summary: In which Arthur gets an unexpected return visitor and things take a turn for the sexy.
Super hot PWP with a dripping wet Eames and Arthur pretty much just attacking him.

Title: Lifetime Achievement (Part 9 in the Performance in a Leading Role Series)
Author: madlori | favicon Mad_Lori
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 47,352
Notes: AU: Hollywood, established relationship, actor!john, actor!sherlock, switching, bottom!john, bottom!sherlock, marriage!fic
Summary: John Watson has just won an Oscar and gotten engaged in the same day. Now what? (Sequel to "Performance in a Leading Role")
Sequel to one of my all-time favorite Johnlock fics. This whole series is fantastic and this most recent addition was really wonderful to read. We get to see all of the event leading up to the wedding and then the event itself. Light fic, dealing with family and friends and their relationship in the aftermath of the first fic. Sexy and wonderfully written.
Current Mood: busybusy

Argh, I shouldn't look into your recs after 11pm. I sat there reading until 1.30am. And I can't blame myself, can I? LOL
Loved the ones by renne and purple_cube.
Maybe I should try the one about Bilbo/Thorin too. Though Tolkien is a bit like the Holy Grail to me and I'm not sure about reading slash in this world.
wicked smut goddess: Hobbit: Thilbogracerene on August 6th, 2014 02:47 pm (UTC)
Aww you are my favorite! I love that you are into other fandoms! :D

yeah, purple_cube is fab. She does really excellent canon-ish Everlark, which is my favorite! There are a lot of modern AUs that feel really OOC and I love reading about them in the Hunger Games verse and I really love her characterizations.

And I was totally obsessed with Arthur/Eames for about a month there. I've moved on to new obsessions since, but I will definitely be going back!

And OMG I am in love with Bilbo/Thorin. I totally get what you mean about Tolkien, but so much of the canon used in the fics is from the movies a la events, physical appearance, and characterization, that I sort of separate them in my mind, you know? Like this isn't fanfic of Tolkien's Hobbit, it's fanfic of movieverse Hobbit. At least, that's how I desperate it out. :D
