hockey recs #15 - non-Pens pairings

LOL, so I posted the Pens half of these recs TWO MONTHS AGO, which means I now have a bunch more recs bookmarked, both Pens and otherwise, but as they're not written up yet I will just post these old ones for now.

Working Extra Service by anon
Kesler/Perry, one-shot. In which Corey feels weird about his post-baby body, and it takes him a while to fess up to it. This is just really sweet with bonus body worship, and I liked it a lot.

Give In by [archiveofourown.org profile] bookhousegirl
Lucic/McDavid, 8k. Looch and Connor work the same event and get to know each other. I am so on this Lucic/McDavid train – Looch on the downswing of his career, Connor just starting his and so vulnerable to being used by his organization. Here they feel each other out, one small moment at a time.

A Little Bit Low Key by [archiveofourown.org profile] agentpb
Eichel/McDavid, 7.5k. Rivals-turned-fake-boyfriends, and what a great use of the trope it is. I love how they become friends, most of all, and how that leads to other things.

capital c by [archiveofourown.org profile] othersideofthis
Thornton/Pavelski, 2k. In which the C is stripped from one Joe and given to the other one, and it really strains their relationship for a while. I don’t see a lot of fic about how sports tensions can push people apart rather than bring them together, but this was a really neat example and makes me wish for more.

I guess it's all working out, now by [archiveofourown.org profile] electrumqueen
Crosby&McDavid, 7k. In which Connor comes out and Sid wishes he had. This is really ouchy, but in good ways? But still, not something I’d read when looking for a happy time.

The Past and Pending by [archiveofourown.org profile] Las
Bergeron/Krejci, 8.5k. Looch is gone, and Bergy makes a poor substitute, but he tries anyway. Ouchy and hurty and good.

can't choose what stays and what fades away by [archiveofourown.org profile] absention
Gallagher/Marchand, 1.6k. Gally and Marchy soulbond at Worlds, because of course they do – and it turns out it's not so bad, really. Short but sweet.

Let Me Down Gently by [archiveofourown.org profile] torigates
Marner/Strome, 7.8k. Angsty teenage breakup and makeup, for when you're in the mood for that sort of thing.

What You Came For by [archiveofourown.org profile] forks
Gallagher/Galchenyuk, 26k. Alex gets a free visit with a high-class hooker. He doesn't stop at one. Very pleasant emotional slow-burn hookerfic.

bread sugar sex magic by [archiveofourown.org profile] inlovewithnight
Ekblad/Mitchell/Mitchell, 12k. Really lovely contemporary fantasy, infused with all those things in the title. Homey and delicious – reminds me a bit of the baking parts of Sunshine, the McKinley novel.

The Knights of Winter by [archiveofourown.org profile] 7iris
Domi/Duclair, 6k. I would not have thought the Arizona Coyotes and the Faerie Queen would have been a natural fit, and yet this fic feels organic and wonderful.
