Fic rec'd by Dusty: blueraccoon/Rebecca

Why this author? I started reading her pwp's because they were really hot, and perfect for rec'ing on Smut Day Wednesdays.  She writes a lot of BDSM and Dom/sub, and she does it well, which is an improvement on about 90% of what's out there, and that makes me very happy.  I enjoy her characters, they're well rounded and fun when they're supposed to be, and angstful when they're not. 

She's very prolific, it seems like she's writing another fic every other day.  I like her short ficlets and "60-Second Porn" installments, which often don't make it into the NCIS FanFiction Archive, so at the moment, you have to read them on her journal or her brand new website, Rebecca's Realm.  They're listed in her memories on her journal and under NCIS fic: "60 Seconds" on her website.  And they're well worth it. 

She doesn't just write slash, I just rec'd a series that starts out het.  She has a writing partner, [info]skripka (who you may notice, I've rec'd before), and the two together often write het.   As a matter of fact, I just noticed that skripka started a new NCIS comm [info]gibbs_abby, and if there ever was a het pairing I could get behind it would be that one, so I thought I'd mention it.  It's sure to have Rebecca's fic in it. 

Rebecca doesn't just write smut, either.  For instance, I've been debating whether to rec her 4 part series Paradigm Shift, which involves a lot of case files, as well as a slowly developing relationship between Gibbs and Tony (no BDSM, this time, either), and I've read it at least three times, which makes it more than eligible for this rec journal.  But I just rec'd my third or 4th fic by her, so I decided to just mention it here, and try and give a few different authors a chance, you know?

Edited To Add: Since I wrote this, Rebecca has written a new series that is threatening to become one of my favorites, ever. It's called Geometry and it starts out as an NCIS case fic with BDSM overtones. The only sex is with her two Original Male Characters who live a heavily BDSM lifestyle, and it's only peripherally involved in the plot. The rest of the series, however, involves Tony becoming a friend of Stephen and Joshua's, and becoming interested in their lifestyle. I'm enjoying them a great deal.

I believe there's only one more in the series, and it will be the first we've seen of Gibbs/Tony. So I'm especially looking forward to that one. But you can read the others without feeling like you're hanging on waiting for the last part. They finish quite naturally, and could end there, if it weren't for the fact that Rebecca has promised me she'll get Gibbs and Tony together before the series is over.

The Usuals:
Usual Fandoms:  NCIS is what I ususlly rec, but I just read a Firefly series that blew me away, and I'll be rec'ing it later today.
Usual Pairings: NCIS: Gibbs/Tony, Gibbs/Abby, Gibbs/Abby/Tony
                          Firefly: Mal/Simon
Usual Genres: BDSM, Dom/sub, Bondage, Smut,  Angst, Hurt/Comfort
Usual Ratings: R - NC17
Usual Warnings: Her BDSM can get harsh, with lots of Hurt before the Comfort starts, but she always warns for this in her notes, so just pay attention before you start reading.

Fic rec'd by Dusty: Xanthe

Why this author? 
Between the X-Files fic that I've been reading for months and months now, and the new SGA fic she's been writing, I know I'll cover the three fic limit, as soon as I start fic'ing her stories.  So I thought I'd get a head start on it, now.  The first thing I read by Xanthe was very, very heavy on Torture/NonCon/BDSM and as she put it, "Physical, emotional and psychological abuse."  So I had a good idea of what she could do from the very beginning.  I've never made it through all her X-Files fic - she wrote many pairings including Het and Gen, so you know me, I never got around to a good many of those.  I have no doubt that they live up to her standard, but they're just not my thing...

And since she's been on LJ, she's been getting into SGA.  She's already written a couple of long fic, including one novel-length fic that's full of all the Angst, NonCon and Torture you could expect from a Xanthe fic.  She's fond Carson, so I expect we'll see more of him, as well as Sheppard/McKay.    I understand she's working on a long piece right now - I think she called it BDSM-Lite.   She can actually get a little on the heavy side for me, sometimes, so this should be interesting for me.

Check out her website if you like Dr. Who and West Wing, she's written in both those as well.  And she's started two new comms on Live Journal:  [info]slashspank - a multi-fandom journal for Discipline and Erotic Spanking, and [info]atlantiskink - a predominantly slash, but open community for Atlantis fic, discussion and art of the Kink persuasion.  Well, she manages to keep busy, doesn't she?

Her Usuals:
Usual Fandoms: 
X-Files, SGA
Usual Pairings:  lots of Skinner/Mulder and some Krycek, McShep, Carson,
Usual Genres:  Slash, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Novel Length, some Het
Usual Ratings: R or NC17
Usual Warnings:  BDSM, Torture, NonCon, Extreme Violence, Bondage, Kink, Dom/sub, Spanking for Disciple, Erotic Spanking

Favorite Author Post: Komos/Paian

Fic rec'd by Dusty: komos/paian

Why this author? 
Her fic are incredibly dense - everything is intense and extremely well thought out and realistic and they just make you yearn for a happy resolution - a resolution that does not always come.  And even when it does?  It's often bittersweet and melancholic, and even when I know the ending isn't going to be one of the happy ones (I should know, I've read them all more than once), I still wish for it, anyway. 

Her fic are usually high on angst and drama, with extremely well rounded characters that grab you and just don't let go.  I really love to read her Jack O'Neill.  You'll see the crazy oaf that you see portrayed in canon and fic, but what I love seeing is the deadly, black ops Colonel that you know is in there, and only seems to comes out when needed.  You see a lot more of him in Komos' work, and that makes me happy, because you know he didn't get to where he is now by being a baffoon.

Oh, yeah, and she writes some of the most intense sexual situations I've ever read. 

She hasn't written that many fic, you can read them all in a fairly short time.  I'd recommend it.  She also recs a lot from her journal; it's worth keeping up with, she has good taste in fic.

Did I mention I want to be her when I grow up?

Her usuals:
Usual Pairing: Jack/Daniel
Usual Genres: Slash, Angst, Drama, Character Study, Hurt/Comfort, Very Intense Sexual Experiences 
Usual Ratings: R or NC17
Occasional Warnings: Could contain talk of Non-Con, Torture (mostly refered to in past-tense)

I rate this Author:  This Is The Best Shit
She is also worthy of: The Dusty Seal of Approval
