As promised - Kradam fic recs!  
Ha, I finally got around to it! Okay, I tried to go with older fics since I have a feeling you've been reading the newer ones, Dani, lol. Of course, a few will be on here (though the one Kris/Adam/Katy one I was going to rec is the latest one posted and you read that! LOL).

So, here it is:


Hunting Shadows in the Dark by dazzamre

This is one of my favorite Kradam fics ever. It was the first complete AU I read and the first one written by someone I didn't know that had me abandoning lurker status to comment over, lol. Also, it's inspired by Latter Days. Well, the setting mostly but whatever because Latter Days. :D I'm linking to chapter 9, which links to the other chapters. The final chapter will be posted on Tuesday (OMG, sad, it'll be over!). Edit: Part 10 - the final part!

“I’m Adam,” the guy told him once he was in the water. It was nice to have a name to go with the face at last, and Kris smiled trying it out in his head. “And you are…?” he asked, amused when Kris didn’t offer to return the gesture.

Kris blushed, glad for the cover of darkness. “Kris,” he told him, floating back a step or two as Adam swam toward him. “With a K,” he added lamely, nearly biting his tongue for saying something so stupid.
With a K? Really, Allen? That’s the best you can do?

“Well, Kris with a K,” Adam grinned, extending his hand to him, “it’s nice to meet you.”

Kris tried to ignore the little tingle up his spine when Adam said his name, but failed completely when Adam’s warm hand wrapped around his. “Same here,” he murmured. He’d only gotten a glimpse of Adam earlier, but up close he was beautiful, even with his black hair plastered to his face and rivulets of water running off the end of his nose. Kris realized he was staring and quickly let go of Adam’s hand.

Colliding with Reality by dark_orion

Okay, I have serious love for this one and I have no idea if this is complete or if it's still a WIP because the last chapter leaves off in a place that could fully wrap it up or could leave it open to continuing. But I reread this one quite a bit. I love the way Kris's thought process is written and the way Katy evolves in this one (basically, I think Katy is awesome and love her, lol, so I tend to stay away from ones that make her unredeemable and a bitch). Each part links to the next through 4b, yay! EDIT: Chapter 5 is here.

“Hey, guys,” he says, the wide smile that comes over his face quickly disappearing as he takes in their expressions, because Kris and Katy have had enough time to turn their heads to face Adam, but not to get their expressions under control. Adam can’t miss Katy’s red face and tear-filled eyes and Kris’ expression of stunned bewilderment and rising anger.

Adam quickly takes a step backwards, holding up his hands in a warding off gesture, light coming off his iPhone lighting his face strangely and revealing that he’d been listening to the studio version of one of Kris’ Idol songs, as much as he always denied it. Kris hopes Katy can’t see that from her angle, because really, the last thing their relationship needs right now is that kind of fodder for Katy’s new theory.

“Whoa, bad timing,” Adam says, more to himself than to Kris or Katy, spins on a heel and quickly exits the kitchen, and that tiny, tiny part of Kris’ brain, present in all humans of the male persuasion, the one that makes them hormonally driven cretins at sixteen and dirty old men at sixty, can’t help admiring, if only for a split-second, the grace with which Adam executed that maneuver, or the trim cut of his body barely revealed by the loose sleepwear as he disappears into the shadows of the mansion.

A split-second only, with no intent behind it, but of course Katy would notice.

Haters to the Left (or: How Kris Allen Learned to Embrace His Inner Kanye) by buffyx

Friendship fic but I love this one. The title alone makes me grin. Hee, Kris! (And, okay, I feel kind of bad for putting fics on here where Sarver is a homophobic asshole but it is what it is. The guy has gotten a lot better since the tour started and even protected and defended Adam from gay protestors in San Jose but when he was first on the show, not so much. So, yay for him for growing as a person but I figured I'd let you know now that some of these fics are going to show that side of him.)

“When Kanye West steps on stage, he tells the haters to suck his dick. He does it through his lyrics. Through his swagger. He doesn't think he's important— he knows that he is, because if nothing else, he leaves it all on the stage. That’s the difference between him and Danny. Love him or hate him, you have to respect Kanye. You need to be like him. You need to go out there and just kill it, no apologies. Make a statement, and have it be enough to tell everyone you deserve to be here, and if they disagree, then, well, they can suck your dick.”

Kris is pretty sure Adam uses the words “suck your dick” solely because he likes making Kris blush.

He grins and says, “Somehow I think you’re better at telling people to do that than I am.”

And then Adam bursts out laughing, and Kris feels a sudden rush of pride, because he loves when he can do that, when he can catch Adam off-guard that way. It’s not easy to do.

Kris & Adam's Infinite Playlist by phaballa

I wish this were longer than just a one-shot but I love the 'verse so it's going on here, lol. Seriously, this needs to be continued.

What happens is, Kris is just standing at the bar, minding his own business, ordering a Banana Hammock from the cute rocker chick tending bar who reassures Kris that his drink will taste nothing like tequila and everything like bananas, and that's when Adam walks right up to him, settles a hand on Kris's shoulder and says, "I know this is going to sound really weird and fucked up, but I really need you to pretend to be my boyfriend for five minutes."

And before Kris can point out that he's not even gay and that he's actually never met this guy in his life,

(but if he were gay, Adam would be totally Kris's type, with his anime hair and ridiculous eyes and pale pale skin against a black leather jacket that's totally unnecessary in Austin, being that it's like at least eight-five degrees at all times)

Adam leans down and kisses him.

Percentages by cathalin

asshole, he finally texted back. choked 2 ways during interview, almost died. probly deservd it tho.

He waited a few seconds, then grinned and sent a follow-up: can I quote u on the 1%?

The text came back immediately: f u.

Well, that was a softball if Adam had ever seen one: u wish. He stopped to think for a second. Should he? Yeah, fuck, he was who he was, and Kris wouldn't have it any other way. He sent the message.

The response came back immediately.
Still 99% U shld b so lucky oops gotta go. Adam pretty much couldn't stop grinning the rest of the day.

Still a little bit of your taste in my mouth by ruby_fruit

One-shot but, hot damn, smexy times!

They’d been wandering around the furniture store, indecisive because they’re furnishing a house now, their house, and not just another apartment and it had felt weirdly serious. Adam was frowning at frames and headboards and Kris just flopping on them – because that was how you tested a bed and who cared what it looked like when you’d either be asleep or having sex when you were in it – when Kris had dropped onto this one and Adam had looked down at Kris, starfished out on his stomach with his head exactly even with Adam’s groin, and grinned, wide and delighted and dirty. Kris had to wait a few minutes to stand up again while Adam laughed at him and they had shelled out for same-day delivery.

They hadn’t even gotten the sheets on it before Adam grabbed Kris, swung him off his feet and tossed him onto the bed. It smelled bright and dusty and felt resilient and new and Kris had pushed his hands up under Adam’s shirt and his shoulders back against the coarse stitching of the bare mattress. Adam had rubbed his face against Kris’ throat, the scrape of his stubble making Kris shiver and reach up with all his limbs to pull Adam down against him, heavy and warm.

Afternoon Sunbeam by dreamblossoms

This one...oh, this one stuck with me. Kris.

Adam half-turns, reluctantly, slowly. “I kind of need to rehearse myself. Is it important?”


His eyes snap to her, surprised. He certainly hadn’t expected that.

“Bullshit,” Katy repeats. “You don’t need to rehearse right now. You’re just trying to get out of a conversation you think is going to be awkward. Well, it may be awkward, but it sure as heck is necessary. So you’re going to come over here right now and park your butt, and you’re going to listen to me until I tell you we’re done.”

Adam keeps watching her, horribly transfixed. He’s simultaneously reminded of his mother, on certain dreadful occasions when he’d been especially bad as a child (one he distinctly remembered involving his 9-year-old self going to town with her cosmetics), and one of his first boyfriends, a bossy mouthy number with a lot of charm and a hard edge. The combination, wrapped into a petite blond straight Southern woman, actually may scare him.

House of the Living by astolat

Zombies. OMG, zombie fic. And it is AWESOME. (And leaves you wrecked but you'll like it!)

"We've been sitting inside here the whole day because the streets are full of crazy infected people trying to kill anyone they see," Sarver said. He held up his phone: he still had a Google Maps page on the screen. "There's a gun store twelve blocks from here—"

"This is not fucking Night of the Living Dead!" Adam said. "These are people. They're sick. And you seriously want to go around shooting them?"

"There's no cure for this thing," Sarver said.

"That's what they said about AIDS," Adam said. "They only spotted this thing at all four days ago. For all you know they just need a fucking retroviral cocktail."

"Hey, come on," Anoop said. "Seriously, man, I'm not crazy about us trying to Rambo our way to the city limits, but—the news said, by the time somebody's taking to the streets, their frontal lobes are mush. Nobody's coming back from that."

A Little Down That Road by gypsy_scribbles

My state, FTW! Ha!

Kris heard him move around a little, chuckling at the cacophonous sounds produced by whatever outlandish outfit he was sporting.

“Jesus Adam, it sounds like a small vehicle crash over there. What the hell are you wearing?”

“What am I wearing?” Adam’s voice was suddenly devilish. “Hmmm. Well, that’s certainly one way you could slut it up. What do you want, me to be wearing, lovah? Or should I just take things off?”

“Oh my God, shut up,” Kris chortled, “You ass.”

“What about my ass?” Adam simpered prettily, and then they were both giggling and undoubtedly a little punch-drunk, but Kris was smiling more than he had in months.

Seven Songs

This is actually seven drabbles, though the one that was inspired by Joey has been turned into a full-blown story if you're interested. (Personally, I wish the first one or second would be one too.)

“… What do you wear with those?” Matt asked, nose scrunched up.

Adam looked at Kris with a wink and shrugged.

“Not a whole lot. Think… Victoria’s Secret. But more masculine,” he nodded. Allison cracked up and Kris held a hand over his mouth, eyes crinkling at the corners.

“Leave it to you to butch up a lingerie store,” Kris laughed.

“My wings are in the OTHER luggage, Kristopher.”

All the More For That by jerakeen

Like you didn't know this name was going to pop up at some point, lol.

He remembers walking into the kitchen one day and hearing Adam's bored voice saying "I'm not ashamed, or embarrassed, or apologizing." The scene was one of millions he'd witnessed between the two; Danny sitting on a stool enjoying his breakfast and probably making Adam think homicidal thoughts while doing it. "I am what I am and I'm not going to hide."

Adam adopted that bored tone of voice only when he was annoyed. It was hard to really get under his skin. Kris didn't think he'd ever seen Adam really angry in all those months.

Kris walked in, looked directly into Danny's eyes and said, "Because he's fabulous just the way he is," and took a sip of Adam's coffee to hide his smile. Danny made a disgusted sound, but it was hard to irritate him to the point of abandoning food. Kris couldn't care less about him. Adam looked pleasantly surprised and bumped their shoulders, saying "Damn right, I am." It was almost like the old days again.

So Much Now by preromantics

Adam squeezes up by his shoulders and they meet halfway, the press of lips less hurried and forceful this time, Adam taking time to press into Kris' mouth, a delicious wet slide of friction.

They end up laying back, Kris holding himself above Adam's torso and Adam pulling him down with a hand sliding through the short, soft hairs on the back of his head.

"You have to tell me what you want, Kris," Adam says in a small break. Kris grips at his shirt, presses his hips down, rolling, and Adam moans low, snapping his own hips back up.

"Want you," Kris says simply.

Thumpa-thumpa by i_bleed_magenta

Kris/Adam/Drake. Yay threesomes! :D

Drake and Kris shared a meaningful glance as Adam shimmied and shook his way through the crowd, pulling both the smaller men behind him. He grabbed Kris around his waist with one hand, pulling him backwards against his body. He reached behind him to grab Drake, and the three men began to grind and sway with the loud thumping music. Kris could never have imagined doing this, but somehow it made sense. He leaned his head back to grab Adam’s lips in a kiss, and pushed his hips backwards to grind a littler harder against him. Adam groaned against his mouth and pushed his own hips back against Drake’s. They danced this way for awhile, alternating positions, occasionally one of them running off to get more drinks. When it was finally Adam’s turn to get the drinks, he returned to find Kris and Drake dancing without an inch of space between them, tongues thrust far into each others mouths and Drake’s hand working their way into Kris’ jeans. Adam pulled them out of the crowd quickly, and handed the panting men their drinks.

Sugar and Spice by cjmarlowe

Same author who did the hot Kradamaty threesome!

"Is it really going to ruin the curry if the ginger isn't minced into perfect little symmetrical pieces?"

"Yes," says Adam, "but I promise the shot will help."

"More than the two that came before it?" says Kris, licking at the corner of his mouth. "You know I don't drink that much."

"That's part of the fun of it," says Adam, but when Kris doesn't pick up the shot he takes it back himself. "Fine, your loss, but I'm not letting this go to waste. Tilt your head a little further, would you?"

"Hm?" says Kris, but he instinctively trusts Adam's voice and does exactly as he asks, tilting his head to the left even as he makes another pass at the ginger. "Why?"

"Body shots," says Adam, and licks a stripe up his neck.

Kiss and Tell, part 1 and Part 2 by i_bleed_magenta

Kris/Adam/Brad. :D

“You’re not…mad?” Kris asked tentatively.

“Why would I be mad, sweetie? Brad’s a friend of mine and we took these pictures when we were crazy in love. There’s no reason you shouldn’t see them!” Adam reassured Kris, smoothly standing to take the smaller man in his arms. He kissed the top of his head and said with a smile, “There, all better, right?”

Kris just pressed his face harder into Adam’s chest, and Adam could practically feel the blush burning on Kris’ cheeks.

“What it is honey? You can tell me!” Adam said, holding Kris out at arms length so he could see his face.

“It’s just…well…I was looking at the pictures because…” Kris laughed nervously, before continuing. “Brad’s…kind of cute.” He finished, finally daring to look into Adam’s eyes, a small, shy smile turning up the corners of his mouth.

More Myself With You by jerakeen


Adam has written 'I'm a fan of your package!' next to it. Kris smirks. Katy will not let him live this down.

That night, he sends Adam a text: Katy loves the shirtless pix. Sends her love.

Adam's reply comes in the form of a picture that makes Kris blush as it opens bit by bit. It's a picture of Adam sleeping, tangled with sheets, but obviously naked. Idiot, Kris texts him, and deletes the picture quickly. It's just what Adam's career needs, his bare ass all over the Internet. Kris would die if something like that happened because of him. It would also be kind of hard to explain why he had that picture in his phone in the first place, but he is used to making embarrassing fumbled explanations when it comes to Adam. Their friendship is hard to explain.

And to wrap up this Kradam rec post, may I suggest The Epic Bromance Guide for Idiots by buffyx with all KINDS of Kradam canon stuff in it. It lives up to the word epic.

Enjoy! (Damn, I just realized I left off 2 stories. Oh well, lol. They're new, you've probably read them!)

Yeah, so I've read every simple one of those fics, but this post still made me unusually happy.

::rereads them all::
Nicole: Adam likes the topblue_icy_rose on July 25th, 2009 03:29 am (UTC)
LOL! I had a feeling you'd have read them all. I need to do another one I think. I keep thinking of stories I meant to put on there but didn't. The count's gone up to at least four! *facepalm*

Yay for rereading!
Rachel: AI: Krismissyousofaar on July 25th, 2009 03:39 am (UTC)
I seriously can never narrow down the fics I think people should read. I love so many, so much, that I would just post a link to my memories and tell them to read them all. (Though, I totally want to rec "He's The Earth and Heaven to You" to. . .everyone, but mostly to umbralillium/Dani, since she asked for recs.) *hugs*

I know, right?!
Nicole: Adam kissing Kris's cheekblue_icy_rose on July 25th, 2009 03:47 am (UTC)
I'm the exact same way! LOL. Gah, too hard to pick just a few! (And YES. That's one of the fics I meant to put on here and then realized I hadn't and went "Son of a bitch." Seriously, another post is going to happen. I can just feel it.)

I kill so much time that way!
Rachel: AI: K/A; Proposalmissyousofaar on July 25th, 2009 03:52 am (UTC)
Ahaha, us FTW. Seeeeeriously. (It's so awessssomeeeeee. I love AUs! :D And Kris' obliviousness is, like, amazing. I don't know. I love it. YAY!)

Dani: easily distracte--bunny!umbralillium on July 27th, 2009 08:21 pm (UTC)
Ack! I really meant to reply and thank you for these, I did. I just...*gets distracted by Kris' beautiful hands in your mood icon* Know any good hand!porn fics with our dear boys? Piano hands. Mmmmm.
Nicole: Adam is fierce!blue_icy_rose on July 27th, 2009 09:26 pm (UTC)
Oh, you're welcome! LOL, I actually had more recs for you but I didn't want to make it too much. So maybe next time. (I think between me and Rae, you've got tons of reading material now! LOL.)

Hmmm. I don't know of any hand!porn, which is a damn shame. Kink meme is going to be starting up again at ontd_ai though so I just might have to prompt for that! :D Or write some. Or both.

Krystal has this good one with Kris getting a tattoo - no porn but there's just something about it that makes me all happy and nnnngh. I think it's the opening lines and Kris tracing Adam's tattoo. (Oh! Speaking of Krystal, she actually just wrote something where Adam watched Kris at the piano...no porn again but still. Hmmm.) Anyway, tattoo one is Carve Your Name Into My Heart. And the piano one is Through Your Fingertips.
Dani: Kris YEAH!umbralillium on July 27th, 2009 09:52 pm (UTC)
This will keep me going for a while, but I have like four weeks to kill until school starts up again, so don't worry about overwhelming me. *G*

That is a damn shame. You'll have to let me know when kink meme starts, 'cause I'm kind of afraid to watch ontd_ai lol God, don't tempt me to write. I've got enough WIPs waiting to be worked on. (and yes, I know that's totally an invitation for you and Rae to enable me. :P)

Ooh! Yay! Thanks for these. ^___^ I have a thing for hands, especially long tapered fingers playing the piano and *happy sigh* Maybe you should try your hand (pun intended) at hand!porn.
Nicole: Adorable Kris!blue_icy_rose on July 27th, 2009 10:09 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, well if you insist! *grins back*

I know! And lol, I will - though I'll probably miss the prompt post myself since I don't watch it either. I joined so I can see the flocked posts (because OMG, the hilarity - like the vid of Matt stealing the Twizzlers from the back of Kris's pants and Kris's face in reaction, HA Dallas! Or the scorned!Matt vid.) but I didn't want my flist to be taken over so I just pop in randomly. Actually, hold on!

.....okay. Kink meme prompts start getting accepted tomorrow at 4:30 EST. :D Hahaha, found it.

Welcome! :D And lol, maybe I will!
Dani: Adam fucking hot hipsumbralillium on July 27th, 2009 10:19 pm (UTC)
O.o Those vids are seriously tempting!

Wait, is the kink meme post going to flocked? O.O
Nicole: Kris - scrunched nose laugh!blue_icy_rose on July 27th, 2009 10:28 pm (UTC)
Oh, well those videos aren't flocked! Here:

Twizzler vid

scorned!Matt's vid - because someone made a scorned!Matt twitter, lmao

And oooh. Let me check.

Yup - I just checked. All the kink meme stuff is flocked because, well porn, and people who are friends with the Idols (like people who made the top 36) and a couple of the Idols themselves (Sarver, Gokey, I'm looking at you) sometimes lurk. There's also debate on whether positiveneil is actually Adam's brother or just a troll, lol. So that stuff is flocked as well as some other stuff. So to see those posts, you'd have to at least join.
Dani: Kris YEAH!umbralillium on July 27th, 2009 10:36 pm (UTC)
Hee! Yay! Thank you!

Mer. Okay. I'll join but not watch. It'd take over my flist if I did, I think. *laughs* DO NOT WANT.
Nicole: Adam - hand shotblue_icy_rose on July 27th, 2009 10:40 pm (UTC)
:D No prob!

And LOL, it probably would. That's why I just randomly drop in there every now and then throughout the day and see what's going on. (Though the mods are crackind down more on spam, lol.)
Dani: Chris Kane *giggle*umbralillium on July 27th, 2009 10:52 pm (UTC)
*cracks up over both* Kris' face! LOL scorned!Matt was kinda creepy. O.O
Nicole: Kris/Adamblue_icy_rose on July 27th, 2009 11:03 pm (UTC)
I love his face and the way he doesn't even turn around, just goes "Ooh." *snickers* Kris, never change. Oh, scorned!Matt can be very creepy but he mostly brings mucho laughter. The whole thing is a running joke since Kris started out as Matt's roommate so they hung out a lot and then during....Hollywood week, I think, Kris suddenly became Adam's roommate. And, well, we see how that turned out. There's some funny pics where Matt looks like he's waiting for Kris to turn around and acknowledge him instead of Adam. Plus the lone Indian tear joke. Just...ha. (I think, if I remember right, Matt actually knows about scorned!Matt. There's like no 4th wall anymore.)
