hockey recs #14 - Pens Pairings

I've been hanging onto these so long and have so many that I'm splitting it up into two. Here are the Pen/Pen pairings, and I'll post the non-Pens pairings in a few days. And there IS an Olli fic in here this time! :D

Right on the Limits by [archiveofourown.org profile] thehoyden
Crosby/Malkin, 21k. An oldie but a goodie – Sid discovers that he's a sentinel, and Geno discovers that he's Geno's guide.

Crosby/Malkin, one-shot. Sid brings Geno chicken soup, because that’s what you do for your sick friends. Yeah, friends. Inescapably adorable.

How Many Pounds of Flesh by [archiveofourown.org profile] crispierchip
Crosby/Malkin, 5k. Sid sacrifices what he has to for the Pens, and afterward, he can't even regret it. No, he literally can't. Fantastic horror. (No character death.)

The Salt King by [archiveofourown.org profile] ladyblahblah
Crosby/Malkin, 112k. In a past life, Sid was a fisherman and Geno was the selkie he loved. It takes them quite a while to figure out what that means for them in their current, hockey-playing lives. Luxuriously long slow-burn. A great read for a rainy afternoon.

Idiomatic by [archiveofourown.org profile] trilliath
Crosby/Malkin, 6k. There's some slight confusion about the difference between a butt dial and a booty call, but the results are pretty great for all involved (including us). An instant classic, IMO.

Crosby/Malkin, 12k. If belly inflation and oviposition are not for you, then this probably won't be either. But if you they are, then run, do not walk. Very sweet, too.

Other Pens Pairings
kissing in the blue dark by [archiveofourown.org profile] dangercupcake
Crosbycest, 3k. Sid’s still upset about that time Taylor fucked Tanger in Sid’s bed, and finally something breaks. Hot hot hot.

Elastic Heart by [archiveofourown.org profile] downjune
Letang/Maatta, 13k. One day, Kris can suddenly look into people’s eyes and hear their thoughts. This is not the boon he might expect, nor is Olli the person he expects to help him with this problem. A really neat rarepair in just the kind of contemporary fantasy vein I really enjoy.

the most remarkable thing about you standing in the doorway is that it's you and that you are standing in the doorway by [archiveofourown.org profile] faithgirl
Fleury/Letang, 1k. This is just very sweet, a scene that is the tipping point on a very long friends-to-lovers journey.

Rainbow Patches on Our Jersey (One Day) by [archiveofourown.org profile] schneefink
Pens gen, 500 words. Five people who are not the first NHL player to come out, and avery nice collection it is, too.

Cooking for Keeps by [archiveofourown.org profile] theladyscribe
Bennett/Dumoulin, 600 words. I went looking for Dumoulin fic on AO3, but there isn't much. :( This is one of my favorites. Cooking and flirting!

i like the sound of your blood by [archiveofourown.org profile] dangercupcake
Crosby/Letang, 4k. 3 times Sid takes Tanger down. Delicious.

Writ by [archiveofourown.org profile] withershins
Sheary/Wilson, Crosby/Malkin, 11k. Conor has his captain's name on his wrist, and it takes him a lot of thought and a little push to decide what to do about. Utterly delightful.

Maybe I, Maybe You by [archiveofourown.org profile] downjune
Murray/Fleury, 12k. Breeding program fic where Matt is tasked with knocking Flower up for the future of the Pens, whether Flower wants it or not. I'm a sucker for this kind of us-against-the-world stuff (even/especially with the situational dubcon), and I love mpreg, so I loved the crap out of this, basically.

The Choir Invisible, by [archiveofourown.org profile] ferritin4
Fleury/Letang, 6k. Marc-Andre works for a paranormal detective agency; Kris is a ghost. This works out remarkably well. I'm rarely big on non-hockey AUs, but I absolutely loved this, especially in the last third when the angst and horror at the back of the situation slowly gets reveals. (But there's a happy ending, too.)

Bottom Line, Signed, by [archiveofourown.org profile] katwalking
Hagelin/Kessel, 5k. Carl asks Phil to be his official-type heat buddy, in case he has the need. It takes Phil a while longer to figure out what that means. Sweet a/b/o romance interspersed with hot porn.
