Fic Rec List.  
That's right, I finally did it. I don't even remember when I mentioned it (or if I mentioned it here or just randomly to Jade and Luna). Below the cut you will find some of my favorite fics, both completed and WIPs from many different fandoms. Since some of these are slash, I will say so in the little blurb I write about each fic in case you don't read slash.



Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel

Hold Me. Thrill Me. Kiss Me. Kill Me. by amejisuto
This is slash, people. It's an AU version of season 2 and explores what could have happened had Spike and Xander become friends that summer after season 1 when Buffy was in LA before becoming more. Awesome characterization and dialogue. Definitely one of my favorites and one I actually squee over when it's updated. About...46 chapters and going strong! Yes!

Spike Does the Alphabet by kantayra
One of the funniest pieces you will read as Spike has interaction with a person for every letter of the alphabet. Many are smutty, many are hilarious, others are poignant, some are slash. Enjoy! I did.

Double Spiked by kantayra
Basically? Season 2 Spike appears in the future....season 6. And he finds out how truly screwed up his life has become (to him) and that he's sleeping with the Slayer. Which leads to Buffy getting to sleep with both Spikes, the lucky bitch.

The Devil Within by kantayra
A Spike/Tara fic and one I read after reading the ficlet in Spike Does the Alphabet. Technically, this one comes first. To sum up? Dark, wonderful, and hot. This got me interested in the pairing of Spike/Tara.

Amnesty Drabbles and Anything For Love by amejisuto
This is a Xander/Angel. Xander and Angel become friends after Faith tries to kill Xander, then they become roomies and feelings develop but nothing happens until LA. Which means that Anything For Love has Doyle! So all you Doyle fans will enjoy seeing him since he's actually there and gives Angel much needed kicks in the butt. ^_^

Pedestal by kantayra.
This goes AU after season 5 and starts off two years after season five. Tara and Willow are no longer together, Xander and Anya are married, and Tara has developed feelings for Spike and is Dawn's guardian. He thinks of her as a really good friend it seems. And then due to a random thought of Tara's, the universe changes...quite a read, definitely worth it.

Not Forgotten by suki_blue
Not only is this slash (S/X, can you guess my fave slash pairing?), but it contains Vamp!Xander. So, if you don't like that then...well, I guess you won't read this one. But if you do, expect to be taken for a ride starting with Spike finding Xander after he's turned but going on to the Scoobies finding out.

The Crimson Codex by kantayra.
A S/D/B fic that I just love. It's an AU from "School Hard" that explores what would have happened if Spike had won and turned Buffy. Three books were written for this and the fourth book was put on permanent hiatus as Kantayra has retired from writing the Buffyverse. Despite this, I definitely think the first three books are worth a read. To know what would have happened in the final two books and epilogue go here.

In Fire and Blood by kallysten
This is an AU that takes place in a verse similar to the Wishverse. It's a Spuffy and starts out with Spike and Buffy fighting but she has to go to Sunnydale (since she's on the non-active Hellmouth...*rolls eyes* That makes so much sense, stupid Watchers) and Spike follows to be sure that no one but him kills her. A WIP that was just started and has 2 chapters but's great already.

Superstar Revamped by kantayra.
The title is self-explanatory. The only difference is that this is Spuffy. If you're not a Spuffy fan though, don't dismiss it. One of my friends can't stand Spuffy on the show. Spuffy written by kantayra or kallysten is all she likes to read. So there's a reason to at least try it.

How To Date A Vampire by suki_blue
Pure comedy. Suki is one of the best comedy writers out there and this just proves why. It's slash and all I have to say is...Spike and Xander's first date. Chaos and hilarity ensues. Enough said. You should also try a lot of her one shots like the parody of the movie Speed. All in her memories. ^_^

Blurred Bloodlines and Blurred Memories by kallysten.
A fic that takes place after NFA and goes off the assumption of "What if the senior partners got their hands on Spike during the final battle?" This is a H/C fic and is also Spike/Angel. Blurred Bloodlines is the first fic and Blurred Memories is the sequel. Both are wonderful.

Harry Potter

Mistaken by LadyRaye
This may end up being the only het story in this section simply because I've lost track of many other stories that are Draco/Hermione, like this one. An awesome post-Hogwarts story that manages to keep both Draco and Hermione in character as they have a drunken night together that turns to using each other for sex to more. And hey, there's a nifty plot to go with all that as well.

Gold Tinted Spectacles by beren_writes
This has to be one of my absolute favorite Harry/Draco (with Ron/Hermione) fics. It takes place in 6th year, and since it was written long before HBP came out, is obviously AU. The plot has devices that have been seen in other fics before but it's done very originally, while keeping the characters in character. Over 40 chapters long, this story has been completed.

Not Your Average Veela Mate by Janara
Just as Harry's not the average Veela mate, this is not your average "Draco is a Veela, Harry is his mate" story. They don't fall into bed with each other, which I'll admit can be hot. But I love this because instead, they choose to work on the relationship before hand. This is a complete AU of year six. Ron, Hermione, and Dumbledore bashing though. So you're warned.

A Vampire's Love by beren_writes
All I have to say is Vamp!Draco. That's all. (Oh and that this too is a Harry/Draco.)

Veronica Mars

Bohemian Carol and Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot by kantayra
These two fics are both set in the 2018 and as Kantayra puts it are the same in the sense that the secondary characters have made the same choices in their lives. Each one though shows the consequences of two different choices Veronica has made in her life. Both are Logan/Veronica and in each Duncan plays a central part in the big mystery. He just doesn't make an appearance. LOL. Love these...check them out. Go!

Holding the Curve by __tiana__
Another Logan/Veronica, this goes AU right after Logan's breakdown in "Ruskie Business" and continues from there. The characterization for both Logan and Veronica is dead on and it's a great read. Always a treat when a new chapter of this gets posted.

Alive by queen_haq
A complete AU look of what if Logan and Veronica were together from the beginning. It's also AU in that Lilly's not dead and Veronica really is Jake Kane's daughter and Lianne never even met Keith (whose last name is Fennel in this...guess who he's with? ~_^) Awesome read that starts in the HS years and goes to at least five years after. A WIP and one worth reading.

Immicible Mixture by queen_haq
Don't die of shock folks, but this story isn't centered around Logan/Veronica. Nope, it's a Mac/Casey story and one that makes me smile every time I read it. Their encounters are so wonderfully in character that it's a joy to read. WIP.

Crossovers

Blood Play by txtequilanights
A Buffy/VM crossover. In this Logan encounters Spike, Dru, and Angelus outside of Wolfram & Hart (Aaron's lawyers, fittingly enough) and becomes the newest addition to their vamp!family. And the fact that Spike's his Sire? Wow.

Wolf Tracks and Lycanthrope, Vampirism, and Magick by amejisuto
This story contains slash once more (except for Wolf Tracks which is the first part)! Angel/Xander/Spike. It's a crossover with Charmed and while I don't normally watch the show, this was an awesome crossover in which Xander ends up in San Francisco after that road trip before season 4. Why? He got bit and voila! Werewolf!Xander. The story itself takes place after season 7 of Buffy.

Killer Crossover by ladydisdain225
A Buffy/VM crossover that takes place in season 3 of Buffy and around the episode "Hot Dogs" for VM, I believe. Basically, Sunnydale's basketball team is suddenly doing great while Neptune's best players (and other rivals of Sunnydale's) are falling ill or being benched. Veronica heads to Sunnydale to find out why. (V/L, B/A)

The Summer of Our Discontent by The Gramayre
A Buffy/HP crossover. AU after season 6 and takes place during an AU 6th year since this was written long before HBP. Buffy and Willow must go to Hogwarts to help out with Voldemort and take a potion that makes them 16 (with their 22 year old minds still) again so they can get closer to Harry to help him out. But they get sorted into Slytherin. (Buffy/Draco, Willow/Harry)


And that's all for now, folks. I have many more fics that I'd like to put on here but then I'd probably need a separate post for each fandom so I'll just have to make another list in the future. Hope you enjoy these!

Spike Does The Alphabet Letter 'Y' = HAWT
Nicole: But did it happen like this? Nooo.blue_icy_rose on January 8th, 2006 02:40 pm (UTC)
Ha, I loved that! It just made me giggle. Ah...funny stuff.
Taken From Your Lips, A Hallelujahflitterbye on January 8th, 2006 02:43 pm (UTC)
Hey, I made a new Angel/Buffy rpg. Want a character? ((Must pimp out new com!))

shanshu_in_la
Nicole: Lusty wrong feelings are good.blue_icy_rose on January 8th, 2006 02:49 pm (UTC)
Oooh. I'll definitely check it out. Is there a list of characters available there?
Taken From Your Lips, A Hallelujahflitterbye on January 8th, 2006 02:52 pm (UTC)
Yep. The only ones taken so far are Lilah and Cordy (both by me). So you can have more than one character. I'm working on it now, so it's a little shotty; the user page explains what charas are doing in this storyline, but I've tweaked it a little and that's not explained yet. It's basically at the ends of season three on Angel, six on Buffy, with a bit of a different outcome. You'll see. ♥
Nicole: Timon!blue_icy_rose on January 8th, 2006 03:02 pm (UTC)
Just got back from checking it out and sounds very interesting. I'd definitely like to join. Where do I let you know which characters I'd like?
Taken From Your Lips, A Hallelujahflitterbye on January 8th, 2006 03:07 pm (UTC)
Well, you can tell me here, or I'll be making a post on there about claiming characters. I'm messing with the colors and such right now, but I should have that post up later today, along with the rest of the user info stuff. I'd prefer if people used character journals, but you don't have too. So yeah, let me know now or later, it's all good. ♥
Nicole: Xander through the years.blue_icy_rose on January 8th, 2006 03:12 pm (UTC)
In that case...I'm going to snag Xander and Spike while they're still available. I just love the idea of Spike trying to deal with his soul and Xander dealing with his issues of why he left Anya at the altar. (And after having seen my fic recs, I feel the need to add that you don't need to worry about me making them declare their love for each other or something, lol. In case you were.)

And feel free to laugh at me when I say I was already off and running and trying to figure out what user names would be available and what color schemes I could use, lol.
Taken From Your Lips, A Hallelujahflitterbye on January 8th, 2006 03:14 pm (UTC)
That's great! I'm not worried about a Xander/Spike pairing. It would be interesting, although I'd perfer it didn't happen for awhile, as I'd like to keep the characters realisitic to the shows (for now). I shall sign you up right away! Thanks so much for joining! ♥
Nicole: Ah. Gotta love dead pan!Spike.blue_icy_rose on January 8th, 2006 03:19 pm (UTC)
Awesome! And I'll be happily creating journals then, lol. And don't worry. If I ever decide to work towards a Xander/Spike pairing (which now that I know isn't being completely ruled out, I will admit is tempting), I'll definitely run it by you first, just to be on the safe side. But I'm with you on trying to keep it close to the show. It just wouldn't be as much fun to suddenly have the characters doing whatever simply because. This way...all sorts of interesting ways to try and make it in character!

*runs off to create journals for both of them*
Taken From Your Lips, A Hallelujahflitterbye on January 8th, 2006 03:22 pm (UTC)
Woot! ♥ *works on com in general*
Nicole: Lust personified is right!blue_icy_rose on January 8th, 2006 10:32 pm (UTC)
I wonder if it's lazy that I didn't go to the community to see if the post was up there so I could do this there. Ah well. Sorry it took so long to get the journals done, but I have to use my mom's laptop over break and it completely crapped out on me for a few hours in the middle of figuring out usernames, lol. But I finally got journals for both Xander and Spike done. They're not all customized or anything yet (it's some compulsion of mine that whenever I play a character, I have to customize their journal, lol) but if I don't do it tonight, it'll get done tomorrow. Here's the usernames:

Xander: scoobycarpenter
Spike: souled_big_bad

I'm all excited for this! Hee!

Aww! You like me, you really like me ^_^

Thanks for recommending my story! I'll be sure to mention one of yours when I do this, Hee...

And I'm so going to check a few of these out. Harry/Draco? I'm THERE!
