Stargate: Atlantis

Fandom:  Stargate: Atlantis
Titles: Over The Edge & Under The Skin
Author: Danvers  [info]sdraevn
Genre: Slash, Humor, Hurt/Comfort, Angst
Pairing: John/Rodney
Rating: PG & NC17
Warnings: Mention of torture
Spoilers:  Nothing specific, but Ronon is on the team, so it's got to be Season Two 

Notes: I really like Danvers' work - she was one of the reasons I started reading SGA fic in the first place.  (I'd read her SG-1 fic, and when she started writing SGA, I was tempted to read it.)   She wrote Under The Skin first, and I liked it a lot.  Well written, as usual, and I always enjoy the way she writes her characters - very insightful.  Then, she wrote a prequel (Over The Edge), so now we know a little more about how they got to where they are in Under The Skin.  I really love Over The Edge.  There's not a bit of Smut in it (yes, I know it's hard to believe that I read something without Smut, but hey, every once in a while, I can manage.)  But it's just so funny.  It really makes me laugh, out loud.  Not too many fic can do that.

Steven Brust's Dragaera Series

Fandom: Steven Brust's Dragaera Universe
Title: Witchcraft
Author: Truth  [info]dhaunea)
Genre: Book, PreSlash, Drama
Pairing: Vlad/Morrolan
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: The Jhereg Series, through Taltos

Notes: My favorite fantasy novels for the last decade or so have been by Steven Brust, and of this whole Universe he's created, by far my favorite novels have been the ones with Vlad Taltos as the lead character.  Vlad is a fascinating character...a "business man" whose "business" includes untaxed gambling houses and brothels, and the protection racket. 

He also happens to be an extremely deadly assassin, an excellent cook, a witch in a country full of sorcerers with an entirely different kind of power, and "human" in a world of Dragaerans - creatures that stand several feet taller than he does, and live thousands of years longer than he will.  Yet he stands out, makes a name for himself in a totally foreign land, and makes powerful allies and formidable enemies in deadly games of politics and power. 

My first interest in slashing this series was in bringing together Vlad and Morrolan (his friend, and one of the youngest and most powerful of the Dragonlords).  They have a lot in common, but at the same time, are totally, widely different in many, many ways.  I always thought they belonged together.  Way before I ever heard of slash.  But then I learned all about fandom, and eventually even found some people who also want to write in this fandom.  This fic makes me happy.  It was the first one I found, and I think Truth handles Vlad and his trusty Jhereg familiar Loiosh, very well.   Good fic.  Worth reading.
