Anya final stand, S7

hockey recs #26

FYI I have made all my recs public on Pinboard. Those should go all the way back through most of my time in SPN fandom, although probably there's not much from my Buffy days, since I didn't have a Pinboard then.

The Good Spot by [archiveofourown.org profile] downjune
Murray/Rust, 7k. There's no high concept here, this is kind of just a bi guy and a gay guy working through their respective issues together regarding their sexuality. Honestly this might be my favorite June fic in years, because so much about it hits so close to home. Just feels very real and human to me.

Murray/Rust, 18k. A soulmark AU where Matt is the only gay guy in the locker room, and the only guy who doesn't ever get soulmarks, and sometimes he's grateful for that combo and sometimes not so much. A fic about what happens when intimacy issues run into someone who just loves everyone. Tropey and sexy and full of angsty feels, the downjune recipe. :D

untitled Sid/Geno soulbond AU by [tumblr.com profile] 7iris
Sid/Geno, one-shot. I would like to hear more about your feelings on Sid and Geno's soulbond and how it keeps amplifying their injuries and distance only makes it worse so they have to skip ASW. Angsty but with hope at the end. Delicious.

Sid/Geno, 2k. Post-sweep feels and getting-together. I really like the slow reveal of the history hanging over their heads. A very satisfying read after an unsatisfying postseason.

In Waking Life by [archiveofourown.org profile] sevenfists
Sid/Geno/Anna, 8k. DREAMSHARING. This is beautifully written. I love how walking into and out of someone's dreams is just a thing that happens, and I love how Sid and Anna's shared dreams have that perfect dream-like logic to them. This is a fic about secrets and intimacy and sharing parts of yourself with other people. Just really lovely.

Sid/Mat Barzal, 3k. Sid hits on Mat at the all-star game, and Mat just about loses his mind. Love seeing Sid as the pursuer, love Mat's hero-worshipping perspective. Also: hot.

Lehtonen/Niemi, 22k. In which Kari and Nemo get married way too young, fall apart, and come back together in Dallas. Lots of delicious repressed angst.
