|Mine, All Mine|
Beautiful hospital room h/c piece with upset Protective!Blair holding himself together after a bad scene, because his injured Sentinel needs him to be okay. Nice undercurrent of UST, and nice contrast between what really happened and what Blair tells Jim.
It's a vignette of love and dedication that keeps on even past memories and illness. It's very sad and very real.
|My Life Twice Closed|
Beautiful,heartbreaking yet so believable
This is a superbly well-crafted tale of suspense! Lots of darkness, great twists and turns, stellar characterization, and it is so emotionally gripping that you just can't wait for each new chapter! This story is incredible!
heartwrenching but truly beautiful
|Kith or Kin?|
Superb writing in every aspect: language, charcter development, pacing; Great story in and of itself. Great Angst
Duncan (Garham Scott) and Methos (Aidan Whittaker) are written perfectly. (this is a slash story)
|Do Not Lay Heavy On My Heart|
It's very lovely and a bit sad. (It's a slash story)
|Drowning in Footwear|
Three words-Funny, sexy, adorable
|Flying Into the Black|
Dark!Jim *and* Dark(ish)!Blair, so double the fun! It's a Sentinel/Firefly crossover, so the characters take on a Whedonesque edginess they never had in the original show. It's still our boys, but they've grown up in a much harsher world, and it shows.
Escape Me Never
Velvetwhip pens an heartbreaking story of a shattered Willow, a survivor of being Angelus' captive, who is taken under Angel's wing. Can he heal the girl he loves?
There's a kinkajou in the office and Dan's freaking out. What's not to love?
very true to the character, interesting idea and the right mix of emotions
|Rest Ye Merry|
There aren't many dS gen stories about so it was nice to see this one appear earlier this month. It really follows on nicely from the canon episode but more than that it also builds on the things we expect from canon like the friendship of Fraser and Ray.
It's charming and hot and tender. Slashy spander from someone who knows that as hot as the sex can be, its nice to imagine a couple could enjoy a snow ball fight too.
Spike the Pumpkin Slayer
Spike is totally spot on. Gave me the giggles like nobodys business.
The Thing About Magic
The way Spike's emotion, just in those few words, is so tangable and real.
"The Man Beneath This Mask"
it's so realistic and beautiful, with a deep meaning behind pretty pictures
|art for Man hunter|
It's an astonishing piece of illustration.
Spike and Dawn had such a good friendship going that sort of fell apart. I think this is beautifully done, showing good insite not only into Spike who is the main focus of the piece, but also looking in on Dawn's point of view.
Past Life Regression
Blair revisiting his wild youth, what's not to love. Taking Jim along with him is even better. And the story is amazingly sensual in its details; I can smell and feel and hear everything that happens. And it's hot as blazing blisters.
The author makes these guys funny, touching, blunt, vulnerable, and HOT, all at the same time. Great dialogue between the characters, plus great internal dialogue for Jim, whose voice sets the tone of the narrative.
