( cunningly hidden under this cut )
I'll add them into the main lists over the weekend.
So to cheer myself up, I've updated another recs list. This time it's the domestic bliss one, otherwise known as already in a relationship fic recs. I've got to give big thanks tomoorspede for giving me hand when google went
Let me know if there are any problems!
And in summary, coding is boring - so let me know if any of these are really really wrong :D
Man, themeing is really hard to do. I've tried to put them in categories based mainly on genre or job if it impacts story, but chances are I got it horribly wrong. If there are any you think really don't fit, let me know :D
Clicking on a letter in the content will take you to all the fics that start with that letter. I know, what technological wizardry is this?
Would anyone find it useful to have this in a themed version as well? Or is that overkill?
Thanks to moorspede :D
Some are new. Some are old. I'll add them in to the main lists over the weekend.
( Under here )
But that means I now get to rec my favourites to you. I've labelled the list porn fics but what I really mean is stories where sex is the focus of or reason for the fic but that they can still sometimes be more than that. Only that didn't sound so catchy as a title.
Because of my preferences, these lean more towards bottom Jensen fics - but any fics totally in that direction can be found in the toppy Jared / bottom Jensen rec list - the toppy Jensen fics have been described as such.
( porn fic recs )
Also, happy birthday ala_tariel :D
EDIT: I had to split the au list into three because there so many good fics. Still, what a pain when lj hates me. Does anyone know how to change an lj cut without messing everything up?
There are trillion more fics from there that I want to rec, but that will have to wait for the next time as I do believe I've reached my typing limit.
Happy Tuesday :D
To tide myself over, I've been re-reading some older fics & enjoying lots of new ones, so here's some recs of the things I've read. I know you'll have read them, but I feel like pimping. As per usual, I'll add them to the themed lists.
How are you all doing today? I'm sleepy.
( under here )
Nothing to do with anything, but I'm sooooo in lust with my smiley Jensen icon. Isn't he just the cutest?
Or not. Life seems a lot cheerier now I'm home and relaxing with some good tunes. Also I'm still working my way through all the clips from the con and making squeaky noises at how cute everyone is. Thanks to everyone who has been putting them up and I'm glad to hear people had a great time.
So abouttwoboys is almost over and there were so many great stories that I really wanted to add them to the rec lists (along with some other fantastic new stories) and I thought I might as well use the time to share the love on a few older stories whilst I'm at it. As per usual, you've probably read them all but it would be cool if you find one or two new ones to like.
I'm currently working on the whole big bang thing. I'm determined I'm gonna do it (although posting just a snippet yesterday was pretty scary) and seeing some of the other quotes has made me really really excited to see those fics. I bet I turn into such a squeeing fangirl over some of them. So, if you don't see any recs or anything from me for a while, that's why.
I hope you're all good :-)
Today is about catching up on all the great abouttwoboys epic stories, checking in with you guys and generally relaxing. I have an only semi-psychotic cat on my lap, some chocolate, some smokes and a very large and very hot cup of coffee. Is anything better than that?
Anyway, here are lots of the boys in an established relationship of domesticy goodness fics that I really like and I hope you do / will too.
( fic recs hidden under here )
Schmoopy domestic day in the life kind of story with added value porn. “It’s time like these – when Jensen walks into the kitchen wearing only his pajama top like he’s some kind of a leggy, busty blonde that Jared suspects that maybe Jensen is secretly a leggy, busty blonde. Only with a cock that fits so nicely up his-”
And I Will Never Be Sorry For Knowing What You Taste Like by nemo_88
An accidental outing causes the boys to re-evaluate their relationship. This does the fine-line balancing act between angst and sweetness so well, that the ending is made all the more perfect for it. “One second later (because it doesn’t seem to take longer than that to throw the trailer door open) everything just stops. Jared’s eyes go big as realization hits him. Everything stops, except Jensen’s head bobbing down Jared’s shaft - it takes him two seconds more to feel the presence of the intruder and go still. They’ve been caught.”
Apologies by benitle
The boys get tired and cranky on set and a small accident happens. Thankfully Jared knows how to make things up to Jensen. This is so much fun and just a really genuinely entertaining story.
Attendance Mandatory by tuuli1109
The boys are forced to attend the big Hollywood wedding of a network executive, so of course Michael Rosenbaum spikes the punch with ecstasy. Jensen gets dosed and finds boyfriend Jared in order to relieve some of that sexual tension. This is really hot but also incredibly cute at the same time.
Be It Ever So Humble by belyste
Delightfully warm story where Jared makes Jensen help him find his new Vancouver home. “Jared’s been talking about buying a house ever since they came back from summer hiatus, but Jensen figures it’s just that – talk. Jared talks like other people breathe, and if Jensen hadn’t learned how to filter out the meaningless stuff by now, he’d have a head full of random crap like Jared’s Guitar Hero scores or his feelings on the great Pop Tarts vs. Toaster Strudel debate, and no room left for his own thoughts or Dean’s lines.”
Bigger Than by mijmeraar
Wonderful dialogue only story where Jared and Jensen have had a fight. For some reason everybody blames Jensen.
Blowjobs Are Key by iwantacar
Jared looks after Jensen, who is exhausted from a long day filming. This is cute and funny and with some smut thrown in for good measure.
Check The Gate by kashmir1
Short vignettes tracking the adorably goofy things the boys do when they get a video camera for a present. The one where Jensen tries to wake the elusive Padalecki beast is made of awesome.
Clipping Coupons Is So Domestic by marishna
A funny fic about Jensen trying to cope with an excited Padalecki when they go grocery shopping together.
Douche by lemmealone
Warm fuzzies inducing fic where Jensen gets upset because the internet says the fans think he’s an ass. Jared shows him otherwise.
Domesticated!verse by mikhale
All the stories in this series are just ridiculously adorable, but by far the stand out part is ’29 and hedonistic’ where Jared throws Jensen a birthday party and then they have lots of hot sex. “Because seriously, there is no way a 6 feet and 5 inches of Padalecki is going to be silent. Jared's just not built for subtlety and stealth. Which is why Jensen's been a bit iffy on the public sex - usually everyone within a fifty mile radius knows that Jared is getting his dick sucked in his trailer. He watches as Jared sneaks into their bedroom, carrying a large box. He knows that Jared is going to hide it behind the even bigger box of porn. If it wasn't so goddamn adorable, he'd make fun of Jared's sad attempt at ninja stealth.”
Driving 30 by mijmeraar
This is a sweet story about Jared panicking that Jensen may change his life when he turns thirty.
Equation by imogenics
Beautifully written fic with a unique take on flow and language and structure. Jared and Jensen’s past and present shown for our delight.
Extra, Extra (Read All About It) by sarcasticpixie
Wonderfully unusual story that reveals Jared and Jensen’s burgeoning relationship through scraps of released and discovered information.
Five Times Jensen Quit Smoking by lemmealone
This is a very funny, but uncomfortably realistic, story about Jensen’s attempts to quit smoking. Really enjoyable. ““Stop being so nice to me, you fucker,” he groaned wetly, feeling the tears start up again. “Yes I want a fucking cigarette. And probably a hug. And my penis back.””
Frame It With Our Fingers Entwined by krisgoespop
Amusing and cute story about Jared house-hunting and dragging a bemused Jensen along. “Jared tends to talk and think with the speed of an oncoming truck loaded with about five tonnes of cement hurtling down a steep hill with the brakes disconnected. In between telling Jensen about what his parents had for dinner last week, one-sided discussions about Nike versus And 1 and southwest sauce compared to mustard, and what Harley dug up in the backyard last week and whether anyone will notice that his socks don't match, Jared does happen to say some meaningful, serious stuff. He was a freaking presidential scholar, for fuck's sake; it's not just tumbleweeds and dustbunnies up there. It's just that the meaningful stuff gets lost in translation, squashed in between random facts and ponderings.”
Holding On To You by agt_spooky
Warm and affectionate story where Jensen worries that he won't be able to keep Jared once Supernatural finishes filming. "And at night, tangled together in his bed or yours, there’s an almost desperate, frantic edge to your lovemaking, like each time may be your last. So you kiss harder, grip harder, thrust harder – imprinting yourself on each other. In case memories are all you have left after the phone call."
I Hear The Ocean In Your Hardwood Floor by arabella_hope
A hilariously sweet story about Jared and Jensen’s disastrous attempts at sex after some heavy drinking at a network party. Possibly the best drunk boys story ever. “”Hrm?” Jensen mumbled. Jared was kind of sparkly, kind of…well shit. There were two of him, how awesome. Jensen traced his fingertips over the soft fabric of Jared’s black button down shirt, proving to himself that yeah, Jared was indeed real. He could feel the rumble of Jared’s laughter shoot up his arm, the heat of his breath as it rushed over his temple.”
I Hope We Didn’t Break Yet (But I'm Glad We Broke The Rules) by marishna
Jensen really wants Jared but Jared isn’t sure what he wants in this fic. There is a really good mix of angst in amongst the hot sexing and domesticated joy.
If This Is What It Feels Like by _doodle
Written for fluffandfold
Awww. This is so adorable. A nice long fic where Jared changes his mind about families after watching Jensen look after his niece.
In Media Res by winterlive
Fights, bitching, watching a game on TV and sex all take place within their world of domesticity. Is there anything better than two boys in love?
in the desperate kingdom of love by maboheme
This is a beautifully written story, poetic and graceful, and full of vivid imagery. It truly is a delight to read and is one of my absolute favourites. “WHEN THE WINTER KING rises in the brittle cold of the north, the skin of the earth cracks, and the skin of man becomes goosefleshed and dimpled. There is never enough warmth. So at the first turning of the leaves, Jared prepares for hibernation at Jensen’s apartment. He hides stashes of candy and cookies in holes in the closet and under the bed and in dresser drawers. He burrows deep underneath Jensen’s thick comforter, plays hide and seek below the layers of cotton sheets and polyester throws, builds fortresses out of foam and goose-down pillows. He nestles himself into the comfort of Jensen’s space, waiting.”
In This Moment by destina
A tender and loving story where the boys take care of each other to ease the exhaustion from filming.
Jared's Right. Of Course He Is by kinkynicky
Soft, sleepy and sweet early morning fic where Jared helps Jensen get ready for the day. This is so lovely. ““That’s mine.” Jared mumbles, not like he minds, but like he just thought he’d put that out there. Jensen takes a sip anyway. “Jay, you thought I’d be hungry at four thirty in the morning?””
Jiggle The Slot With The Thing by mijmeraar
The boys drunkenly decide it’s a great idea for them to break into Michael Rosenbaum’s house in this joyful and amusing story.
Kristen Fucking Bell by keepaofthecheez
Jensen challenges Kristen Bell to a karaoke duel. Jared is amused.
Like It’s Going Out Of Style by atimi
Funny, yet still damn hot, fic where Jared decides that Jensen has given him way too many new fetishes. This is full of so many great one-liners. “In the years before Jensen, he'd been a fairly vanilla guy. Sure, he'd owned a pair of handcuffs at some point and since his hands were paddle-sized already, it would've been a waste not to playfully spank a few asses over the years, but otherwise his sexual preferences fell strictly within the normal range. When he and Jensen had first hooked up, he didn't see that changing, but somehow, like a stealthy sex ninja, Jensen had sneaked into his brain and set off more kinks than Jared even knew he had.”
Make You Love Me by audrarose
Ridiculously cute story where Jared eases Jensen through the pain of a hangover. “Because the sun is out there. Hovering behind the huge picture window and reflecting off the snowy slope with about a zillion watts of pure, evil energy. He’d looked up earlier, when Jared had bounced out of bed on whatever cheery errand was so fucking important at dawn on their day off, and it had been like 10,000 giant flash bulbs going off in his face. He wouldn’t be surprised if he has retina damage, because that would totally explain the excruciating headache.”
Manna To A Starving Man by mikhale
The porn and the schmoop go together perfectly in this slice of Jared and Jensen’s life fic.
No Regrets by siubhlach
An adorable Jared comforts Jensen after he returns from a not successful coming-out visit to his parents. This is so very sweet.
Nothing Says I Love You by _doodle
Jared embarrasses Jensen with his Valentines Day gestures but makes it up to him with lots of hot sex. This is yummy.
On My Way To You by mijmeraar
Schmooptastic story where Jared sends Jensen on a memory driven clue hunt through the streets of Vancouver. The back and forth between past and present works really well for the narrative and in showing the reader just how their relationship bloomed. “Fifteen minutes and twenty two seconds later, Jensen’s in his car and on his way to the bar. Supper he can do without, but it’s been a whole week with no Jared – no touching, kissing, fucking until they forget their own names, forget everything except each other – and he’s not waiting idly around for that. His mind, body, everything can’t take it. His right hand surely can’t take it.”
On the Cusp. The Hem (or: Two Megapixel Hero) by the_oscar_cat
Two words: kilt porn. But it’s also a lazy-summer, a deepening of attraction, an organic development and fluctuating sensuality.
Preferably During Business Hours by marishna
“Jared was truly a mastermind of evil.” Jared uses his mad small towel and no pants skills to drive Jensen crazy on set in this sexass fic.
Problems With Easy Solutions by erin2326
Written for fluffandfold
It’s New Years Eve and all Jensen wants is to kiss his boyfriend at midnight. Featuring an adorably cranky Jensen, gratuitous use of the word baby and a gently amused Jared.
Read Me Like A Book (That’s Fallen Down Between Your Knees) by hkath
This is a very funny story, full of delicious one liners, about the time Jensen put himself through the misery of taking part in a bachelor auction for charity. Jared doesn’t really help. “OK, so he's fully clothed, but Jensen is pretty sure he's never felt more naked in his entire life. Not even during that recurring dream where his sweatpants disappear in the middle of cheer practice and George Clooney just happens to be hanging out in the bleachers eating a hot dog.”
Rewind by gigantic
A voyeuristic glimpse into the funny and sexy moments Jared and Jensen have when they play with a video camera.
Slow Sunday by mikhale
Perfect glimpses of lazy days and down time are captured in this fic that is almost the dictionary definition of domestic schmoop. It’s so easy and comfortable that you can’t help but believe every moment.
Stages by annella
Short perfect glimpses into the boys’ relationship spanning over twenty years.
Straylight Automatica by finn21
Beautiful, sometimes achy and sometimes funny fic where what isn’t said becomes more important than what is. This is so delicately done and all the confusion, hurt, want and need blend seamless into a captivating whole. “Briefly, after he’s had a very stimulating conversation with Chad about the differences between having a goatee and a beard and which do you think makes him look better, Jensen considers drinking. Hard liquor would do him a world of good right about now, loosen him up a bit.”
Sugar We’re Going Down by keepaofthecheez
This is stupendous. Jared outs them, so Jensen breaks up with him. “In the end, all he could do was sit and stare in horrified silence as he watched Jared’s interview with the sassy blonde anchorwoman while listening to the words coming out of his co-star’s mouth like a car-wreck that resulted in bloody and broken bodies strewn out along the road…and he just couldn’t. Look. Away.”
Ten Times Jensen (or, how Jared Padalecki is the most unloved boyfriend in the history of the world, ever) by siubhlach
Based on an awesome prompt (um…by me), this fic is so incredibly enjoyable. Jared wheedles Jensen until he agrees to play a game where they each write a list of ten fictional characters they’d have sex with. “The thing about dating Jensen was that handling his boyfriend could be a lot like a military operation sometimes. It needed careful planning and a subtle approach, like a spy mission (which was beyond cool because Jared would have loved to be a spy, like James Bond. He could totally have been James Bond; he’d have made a great Bond. If he was, you know, British). Jared focused hard, schooling his expression meticulously until he knew he had the perfect puppy face firmly in place. Then he looked across the couch to where Jensen was sitting, legs curled up underneath him and nose buried in his latest novel.”
The Bet by ejtheviking
The boys are still in their honeymoon phase, so of course Mike and Tom bet them that they can’t keep their hands off each other for 48 hours. This is very amusing and very cute.
The Jared Padalecki Cookbook by zortified
Jared seduces Jensen with his mad baking skills…just not with the actual desert. This is a funny and unexpected short fic.
The Jensen Ackles Show by annella
Written for fluffandfold
Gorgeous Thanksgiving story where Jensen goes insane in the kitchen and Jared calms him down with dirty talk and sex.
The Kitten Made Them Realize by bksncleverness
I know I've recced this before and that I'm completely biased because it was based on my prompt, but I just can't squee enough about how damn adorable this short fic is. Jared comes home to find their new kitten fast asleep on Jensen.
The Missteps Of Evolution by renjifan
This is chest-achingly sad in places, but so worth the journey. It’s wanting what you cant have, getting what you think you should want and learning to live with decisions you make - all those universals that we can feel along with the boys as we read this. Jared and Jensen get involved, but not properly, and time changes them just like the seasons.
The Moon Is Chasing Me by estrella30
Lovely story about how and when ‘I’ slowly changed into a ‘we’. “There’s a hockey game on tonight, and instead of getting a table, they’re sitting at the bar. Jared’s on Jen’s left and Tommy’s on his right. He and Jared are splitting a plate of wings. Mike’s throwing popcorn at them over Tommy’s head and Jen thinks: This. This right here is a good night as Jared’s leg presses against his just a little too close, a little too long.”
Thin Line Between (Love And Hate) by keepaofthecheez
Written for slashfest
This is a smoking hot fic where, after long days filming, Jared decides to fuck the bad mood out of Jensen.
This, Right Here by dev_earl
Happiness inducing fic where Jared plays a joke on Jensen but both boys really get the last laugh.
This, That and Them by mijmeraar
Domestic episodes in the boys’ lives are shown in this sweet and lovely fic.
Trickle Down To Our Goodbyes by gretazreta
Written for fluffnfold
Gorgeous and charming story where Jensen looks after a Jared who is worried about what their future will bring.
Trouble On Four Furry Feet by benitle
Let me preface this with “eeeeeeeeeeeee tiny kitty for the win!”. This is pure happiness inducement. Jared finds a tiny kitten, lost and dishevelled, and decides to rescue it by brining it into their home. Jensen resists at first, but soon the tiny fluff ball is winning him over and completing their little family. “Just as Jensen wants to grab her again and set her down, Joe lays down, folding herself into a small bundle. She yawns and then she blinks at him a few times, before she finally closes her eyes. Her breathing slows down and she looks as she wore a smile on her face.”
Yes Sir (I Don’t Mean Maybe) byhkath
Written for spn_j2_bigbang
Featuring some of the snarkiest, sharpest dialogue and a wonderfully insane plot about Jared and Jensen parenting a strange robot-baby in order to be allowed to adopt, this is quite possibly the funniest fic ever! “Everything went smoothly until they got to the checkout line, where six different flavours of beef jerky were sitting in a large tiered plastic display, waiting to blow Jensen's mind. He'd never been more excited about a meat product in his entire life, and that included those Schneiders lunch packs his mom would sometimes send him to school with on special occasions, like when he'd been especially good, or a distant relative had died or something.”
You Make Me Smile (Like Children On A Playground) by unperfectwolf
This is Jeff POV fic where you can really feel the warmth and affection he has for his two boys.
Where It Starts by estrella30
Brilliantly structured back to front fic about the boys getting and then being together. This is packed full of hot porn, funny dialogue and wonderful sweetness. ““You want my hand, Jen? Or my mouth. Come on. Tell me.” Jared’s voice is low and dirty. Jensen thinks that no one in the world would believe what a filthy fucking mouth Jared has, that he could tell people flat out and they’d think Jen was lying, making it all up.”
Because I haven't been around this last week, I'm sorry if I've missed anything important. But, hopefully, you'll point me your way if I have or fill me in here or just tell me how you're doing - especially as you've done me the courtesy of listening (looking?) to me ramble on.
*big hugs to everyone*
So because she's wonderful, siubhlach wrote me some and you should all go read it. It's called 'In Pursuit Of Seduction' and you can find it here. Warnings for teh sexing, Jensen in makeup and delightfully toppy Wentworth.
How is everyone today?
But on the cheerful front, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ulysses3_de. I hope you have a truly fantastic day hon.
And how good is abouttwoboys? I thought I'd rec some new & old stories that I love before I literally ended up typing a list of everything that's on that comm. As per usual, you've probably read them all...but they're so good I can't help myself. I'll add them in to the main lists.
So how are you all doing on this fine Sunday? Any news? Gossip? Random rants?
Chimera by jaguarcaine
This pairing had never occurred to me, but in this epic story it works so well that it actually makes me want to find more. There’s mpreg in it, so if that’s not for you then read no further. If it doesn’t bother you, then I can’t recommend this highly enough. The premise is simple: Ames White encounters an Alec who is giving off a mating scent, but it’s the journey that follows that makes this so captivating. It’s wonderfully written, deftly plotted and very gripping.
Written for superpornsunday
Ben likes the way Alec looks.
All The King’s Horses And All The King’s Men by alyse
Alec’s having seizures and goes to Logan for help. This is a long and well written story where there are fascinating emotions at play beneath the surface of the characters, which are beautifully revealed in stolen unguarded moments. An immensely satisfying read.
The One With the Alleyfucking by veronamay
Yummy porn mixes with fragile and confused feelings in this story. Logan is pissed at Max and turns to Alec for some relief, but things don’t always go as planned.
I'm much perkier than I was last week and, yeah, I did complain about the evil troll again. Wooo. Thanks so much to you all for letting me vent and for cheering me up.
So in return I want to share the joy by telling you about more fics that made me squee and cry and laugh etc. I'm gonna do the other themes I asked about, but staranis suggested jealousy fics and I liked the sound of that. This isn't a complete list, just stuff I like. Also there are other great stories that fit this theme that I've already recced in other categories, but I didn't want to repeat myself. It's only a small list but here you are....Enjoy.
( recs under here )
Thanks to siubhlach for reccing 'Beauty Steals Inwards' to me. I so would have missed out if I hadn't read this again. And, rejoice, Supernatural season 3 has finally started showing in the UK. Jensen and Jared on my bigass TV. Sweet.
So - how are you all doing? I'm happy because, for a change, I have a purry fur bundle on my lap rather than a psychotic fluffball of fury. Woo hoo.
So far 2008 shaping up to be amazing fic wise. There have already been so many excellent & epic J2 fics. So this is recs for new stuff you've probably all read but I wanted to squee about anyway, plus some fantastic older stories. I'll add these into the main posts.
And, as if everything weren't good enough - I got new shoes. Yay. They're really cute Emily the Strange t-bars.
