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, 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 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.
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
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.
