sugar blue by rangerdanger, chris/tom, NSFW, au, 25k
    tom flees west. or goes on another weird vacation. ranch au.
    Oh, no, I think this fic has ruined me right from the beginning. It's actually kind of a perfect fic for me to start reading Chris/Tom fic from, because it's decently long at 25k and it's an AU fic that lets me ease into the idea of reading English-speaking actor rpf (because it's entirely different from reading/writing Japanese boyband porn, whom I'm pretty sure will never read my smut) and it was so charming that I just instantly got sucked into it. I've been edging around the fandom for awhile, I've certainly reblobbed a lot of gifsets and pics of the two of them having little personal space or practically waxing poetic about each other, but it was a conversation with velociraptor-hands that got me to decide that, okay, I'll at least try one of the recs given to me. And then this is going to ruin me because I want a hundred fics just like this, all this long, and this well written. But I loved it so much and kind of immediately wanted to dive into more of the fandom, especially when the author was just so very good at writing the tension between the characters, the attraction and gravity they had towards each other, that sense of when you first meet someone and they just have this presence to you. I loved that I spent the entire time reading this fic reveling in the build-up and waiting for something to finally snap, so that when it did, boy, was it super good for me.

And I love this fic for all the world-building it did, for making me fall in love with an AU that I might not have normally been that interested in, for making me feel like I was right there with the characters, for putting in so many details without getting hung up on them, instead making it easy to just picture the whole thing, right down to the way the characters' expressions were described or the way they moved or the way they looked. I loved it for all of that. But, man, did I ever read the hell out of this for the super, super hot sex. It's the kind that's not pulling any of its punches, it's not half-described or vague, it's the kind of sex that's detailed and gorgeous and sexy as hell for the intensity of it. It's the kind of porn that'll spoil you for the rest of the fandom, quite frankly. Basically, this fic was everything I wanted and everything I didn't want because, fuck you, now I'm ruined. orz

again and again by rangerdanger, chris/tom, NSFW, au, 18k
    au fics written for and prompted by various people across tumblr.
    Still super mad at velociraptor-hands for finally dragging me into properly reading rpf fic. I danced around it for ages but giving me a quick list of recommended fics like this, making them au fics, which means they can be more complete stories (which means better chances at happy endings, which is a surefire way to get me interested) and then this series of au fics just followed neatly up on that, each one of them sucking me into the story and winning me over, well, again and again. My favorites are probably the first two, the adventureland au and the daycare au, which may or may not have to do with both of them having scorching hot sex scenes in them (the kind that are super detailed, but without being distracting from the flow of the scene, there's no awkward descriptions here for all that they're super explicit, which is my fucking favorite when authors can pull that off), but also because they had that same magic to them, where I could feel the attraction to and the feelings for each other, and all the right touches of humor and building of a relationship.

I love the writing here because it has all these great little touches, like the way Chris smiles or the way Tom laughs and it shows off that long, long neck of his and everything is just so fucking charming and delightful and I want to write a coherent rec, I really do, but all I can manage is keyboard mashing, sorry. It's just... this author has a way of writing the way they touch each other, the way it's so easy to picture, there's a certain intimacy to it, no matter what else the emotion of the scene is. The way I can practically feel those touches right along with the character, the way I practially fidgeted whenever they were dancing around each other and I just wanted them to get together already. Basically, just... the kind of fic I would genuinedly read for hours and hours and hours every day, if I could.

ergonomics by rangerdanger, chris/tom, NSFW, office au, 22k
    office au. work is hell but chris tries to cope.
    The third fic velociraptor-hands recommended for me and yet another one where I'm going to have a terrible time writing as coherent a rec as I really want to write, but here goes. Once again, the fic just sucked me right into the AU of it, the world building is fantastic, as it unfolds at a perfect pace, giving me the details to picture it fully but without interrupting the flow of it, and that's actually not a small thing, when it comes to writing an alternate universe that's completely different from the source material. But there's also just a certain quality to the writing, the little touches here and there that make the characters feel so fully realized to me, they feel like fully formed people to me, with traits that aren't necessarily good or bad, they just are. Of course, the real reason I'm reading is that delicious tension between Chris and Tom, how they meet as boss and assistant, how Chris doesn't want to like his boss, but winds up falling for him anyway, there's a pull there that neither of them can resist, despite that they're both so different, they just fit together. And I love--as much as I hate it, because it makes everything feel so short--that I could whip through 22k of fic practically like it's nothing, because it's so well written and well paced and I just wanted to know what happened next, when they were going to get together, how their relationship would go, how it would all play out.

As much as it's kind of nerve-wracking (though, generally, I already trust this author to be the sort who likes happy endings, or at least really promising endings), I also love that finally having sex doesn't mean that everything is going to go smoothly. I love that there are still bumps along the way, there's still a lack of certainty, there's still a lot of ground to cover and you don't really know what's going to happen. I really loved the ending, because it was about the only way it could go and be satisfying, which it definitely was. As well as the sex being that kind that... that takes its time without being too drawn out, it's descriptive without getting stuck on unnecessary details, but not skipping those that add to the mental picture you have. It's hot and gorgeous and enthusiastic and satisfying and, seriously, I cannot overstate how much I love this kind of writing and how it's ruining me in this fandom. Eventually I'll adjust to being ruined, but for now I'm going to complain long and loudly, especially when I've finished the fic and that means one less to read. /grumpy

drop it doe eyes by rangerdanger, chris/tom, NSFW, au, 8.8k
    tom, who is nineteen, spends an interesting summer at his host family's farm in australia.
    As I've mentioned, I'm in the middle of a couple of other, longer fics that I haven't finished yet (a lot of them genfic), so I paused and thought to myself, yes, I need something with resolution right now. I had planned to be a bit more rationing but whatever. I started this one and couldn't stop until I was done, because I love love love this author's au fics, especially the ones with Tom as a bit of a fish out of water and then he meets Chris and... it's not precisely written this way, but I sort of feel like something in his life comes into focus once that happens and I fucking love stories like that, all the better if that's not really the point of the fic, it just sort of happens. It's... more subtle than how I'm putting it, but one of my favorite things when an author does it right. As well as nailing (once again) that sense of tension building between them, the sheer level of attraction between these two people, the gravity pulling at both of them, without making it too overdone, so you understand why they're hesitant and still feeling each other out. When an author can do that right, it's exquisite.

And I cannot stress enough how quickly this sails by (without being dissatisfying for it! just that I hardly notice the time passing, like I should when reading something good), how I only meant to read a quick bit before bed, just a little something with some resolution, and then, wham, before I knew, I was finishing it up. It was perfectly paced and beautifully built up to the climax of the story (pun half-intended there, I suppose) and, again, as always, the sex was charming, delightful, and super fucking hot. I keep thinking, oh, I'm just going to read this for the porn, that's all I'm looking for out of this, and that is probably the most satisfying aspect, but... well, I fall in love with these people every time I read this author's fic and now I'm having all these feelings and, ugh, this is the most ridiculous rec just about ever. *goes away to hide forever*

The End is the Crown by Velociraptor_Hands, chris/tom, NSFW eventually, mafia au, dub con, 6.9k
    Tomorrow night he had a date with a sociopath; a criminal, Russian sociopath who was known for clawing out the eyes of his enemies. It was easy to dismiss those reports as rubbish when sat in front of the man in question. Chris didn’t seem unbalanced, just arrogant and too handsome for his own good. Back on familiar territory with Ben, the harsh light of reality told Tom otherwise. He needed all his wits about him if he was to come out of this unscathed and still employed.
    Fic like this is the kind where... it reminds me of two things. One, why I started reading Hiddlesworth fic in the first place--because I get stories like this one. And, two, that this fandom has been one of the most satisfying to be in--because I get stories like this one. It's a wonderfully built AU fic where the writing is fantastic, the premise and execution of it are intensely intriguing, and there's an incredible charisma to it. The author does a gorgeous job of pulling me into the wild attraction between these two people, from the way Chris flirts with Tom in Russian to the dangerous aura that Tom can't resist to the way Chris openly says filthy things to him to get him off balance to the way you don't really know what is going on in Chris' head.

It is absolutely deliciously well built, the way little details of world building are woven in (ahhhh, from the lives of the people to the buildings they stood in to the clothes they wear, it's all a delicate balance to make a richly written world without sacrificing pacing or smooth writing, but this is gorgeously done here) and that would have been enough for me to love it. But when the heart of the fic is still on that ridiculous amount of chemistry your two main stars have, when that is still portrayed perfectly, and then set against the backdrop of a darker scenario? Oh my goooood, give it here forever. I mean, nothing has really happened yet in the sense of actual fucking (just some suggested ideas) and yet it's one of the most super fucking hot things in this fandom for me. Ugh, I really need chapter three soon.

hiddlesworth office au by thisdorkyblogthing [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, NSFW, 4k
    Chris started looking into getting a personal assistant upon his dad’s urging. He’d just gotten the promotion of a lifetime after years of hard work, slowly making his way up the corporate ladder, from lowly intern working absurd hours and making copies to having his own office with view that made him get why some of these guys got on weird power trips.
    Speaking of fic that's just purely fun! Goddamn, do I love AU fics and this was a good example of why that is, because it's just so much charm and joy to read. Office AUs aren't that common in this fandom, which is a shame, because you can see how delightful they are in the right author's hands, especially when it's a light-hearted story about two characters working together in the office and dealing with their attraction to each other. The fic does a lovely job of staying in that light-hearted area without making it too sweet or sugary, instead there's just enough pining to keep it interesting--plus Tom helping Chris pick out the best suit to wear to a business meeting!--until the tension finally breaks between them. The sex was just as delightful, because they were fucking in an office closet during the Christmas party and if you don't want to read that fic immediately, especially when it's satisfying porn and Chris is a dork and Tom is an amazing assistant, well, then I'm not sure how to help you.

Otp challenge - 24. Roleplaying by takemetothedungeons [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, NSFW, role playing, references to thor/loki, 3.2k
    Chris was giddy, there was no other way to put it. No amount of pinching costume, caked make-up and itchy hair extensions could put his good mood out. There were good parts of playing Thor, there were bad parts of playing Thor and then there was Tom. We are back.
    This was super fun, with a great mixture of their roles that they play and the easy chemistry they have, which was conveyed really well here! It's such a smooth and satisfying read, so playful and fun (with brief moments of angst, of course) and some really hot blowjobs and handjobs. It could have veered into awkward/secondhand embarrassment territory when they first discuss the attraction between them, but the fic sticks to the light-hearted well enough (without being too saccharine sweet) that I just wholly loved it and it was good. Everything about it was good and happy making and adorable and fun and sexy! It's a great read after all the promotional material lately, it really fits the tone of the ship perfectly.

30 Day OTP Porn Challenge! - Oral by amberfox17 [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, NSFW, catboy!tom, 2.9k
    Chris has almost, almost finished job three of the sixteen on his to-do list when he hears a dull thud from the living room and a distinctive, displeased yowl. This is swiftly followed by another thud. And another yowl. And again: thud and now a louder yowl. Thud. Longer, louder, the-world-will-end-if-no-one-pays-attention-to-me-yowl and ok, Chris has had enough.
    This is everything I want out of Hiddlesworth fic, right down to the clear affection for demand little shit cats, which is so much fun. You can tell the fic and the author both have great affection for cats, that they like them for their behaviors, not in spite of them, and that resonates with me on a spiritual level. I love, though, that this isn't just (for example) Lokitty fic masquerading as Hiddlesworth fic, because catboy!Tom is openly affectionate, if still in a very cat-like way, which is another reason the fic works so well for me. But then there's also wall sex and mutual blowjobs and tail porn and all these little moments were Tom is such a cat. Like, I really cannot express how great that was or how much pure joy it was, how it was just the right balance of everything.

One very special cat by amberfox17, chris/tom, nsfw, catboy!chris, 17.3k
    Catboy Chris AU: Tom wasn't even sure he wanted a Hybrid, yet somehow he's ended up taking home a six-foot Feline/Human cross named Chris who likes bacon, ear scratches and sleeping naked. This is going to be a problem.
    I've been distracted by other things lately, so I hadn't read much Hiddlesworth lately and this one languished on my reader for a bit. In a way, though, I'm glad about that because it means I had it on hand for when I read the catboy!Tom fic previously and totally wanted more of that kind of thing. And, oh, this was so much fun! I whipped through it in practically one sitting because I absolutely could not put it down and because the pacing of it is perfect, where it just sails right along and devotes just the right amount of time to each scene that's necessary. It also amazes me how well the background worldbuilding was worked in, all the little details that painted a fuller picture of this world, all without... trying too hard, without losing that sense of sheer joy and delight at writing a catboy fic.

It also amazed me how well Chris works as a cat here, which I wouldn't have thought at first, but I had zero trouble seeing it while reading this, because balanced stereotypical cat aspects with ones that were more unique to Chris and that worked for me. It's genuinely a glorious fic and it reads amazingly and it strikes such a great balance of how the Hybrids are human-like but definitely not human, while still not making it weird or creepy. I had feelings while reading this, one of those I JUST SHIP THEM SO HAA-AA-AARD moments when they bonded with each other, when Tom grew to love Chris and how well they fit together. Plus, oh, man, it wasn't super lengthy sex, but Chris being one of those big cats that just holds Tom up against the wall while fucking him? Nnnghh. I needed a minute to recover after that.

All At Sea by curds_and_wheyface, chris/tom, NSFW, au, 9.2k
    Tom spends a month after University graduation in Cambodia. There he finds a lot of rain, a dubious-looking tourist boat and a man named Chris.
    Oh, this was the perfect read for me tonight! It's a gorgeously written piece that does a beautiful job of building up the attraction between Chris and Tom, who meet while Tom is on vacation in Cambodia, where there's just enough detail about the scenery around them, the things Tom does on his vacation and the places he stops at, to lend a really lovely, lush feeling to the story. That works together with the sense of... I hesitate to say it's a light-hearted fic, but it sort of is? In a really good way, without giving up the heavier tone to it, at the same time. There's something almost lonely or bittersweet about this Tom, but that things are turning towards the better, even when nothing is really wrong. I love fic that can be written in such a clean, smooth way, but still give me that feeling of so many undercurrents that aren't being directly said, it's my favorite style of writing to read!

But mostly it's just a really good story and then there's ridiculously hot porn, the kind that I actually had to stop mid-reading because I wanted to set it aside for the last thing I read tonight, as I knew it would ruin me. And it pretty much did, especially when Chris parted Tom's cheeks to lick him open before sliding his cock in and just. Hnnnngh, super hot and ridiculously good. The chemistry between these two people is perfectly captured here, everything has this fantastic charisma to it, and it's gorgeously written. I practically sighed dreamily afterwards and I don't regret that a bit.

Company Policy by homesweethomicide13, chris/tom, NSFW, office au, fluff, 60k
    Tom's just a temp PA working in a single department for one of the biggest companies in the city. He doesn't expect much to come from it - just a bit of money and some experience to help him along the way whilst he writes his novel. When he finds himself rather unexpectedly trapped in an elevator with the head of the company - Chris - his life unknowingly takes a rather bizarre turn. Chris is a billionaire, a man with the world at his fingertips and anything he could ever want is probably already his - so what does he want with an ordinary temp whose only claim to riches was a savings account left by his grandparents five years ago?
    Chapters 01-06: This fic actually updated since I read it/started writing the rec, so this rec will be based on the first six chapters, but I don't think it'll really make much difference? And, oh, I love Hiddlesworth AU fics a ridiculous amount, especially when they're ones that are designed to just make me happy! One of the tags on the fic is "so much fluff it'll put you in a coma", which is an accurate description--it's not sugary, saccharine fluff, but instead the kind where everything is going to work out and you don't have to worry about the ups and downs of the relationship, which we all know I am a ridiculously huge fan of when author's write that kind of story.

Which means I love pretty much everything about this story. Workplace AU! Where Chris is the super rich, but super nice boss' boss! Where RDJ is the playful, but genuinely good spirited immediate boss who is totally going to help nudge them towards each other! And Tom doesn't want to mess things up, but he's so attracted to Chris! And he's working through some stuff, but slowly getting there! And Chris is just so taken with this charming man and doesn't want to overstep boundaries but can't stay away, either! It's all of the fluffy romantic feel-good things I could ask for! And I really enjoy that the author just has a certain charm to everything, that certain something that pulled me in for the 30k+ words I read far past the time I should have been asleep and didn't even get mad that they hadn't gotten to the porn yet! Usually, I'm ready to give the author a dirty look over that! But, here, I don't mind it so much because this is about the slow, sweet build up to a lovely relationship. It's also a bonus that the author has said everything is already written, so the update schedule is quick which, ahhh, yes, I love it when authors do that!
    Chapters 07-10: I decided to wait until the rest of the fic had been posted before doing a rec for this fic because the author was posting a chapter a day and one of the things I really liked about the fic was being able to read it all in one go, which worked with the tone of the fic, the way it was lengthy, but not drawn out. It wasn't padded, but it was satisfyingly long and being able to read 25k words in one sitting (as the whole thing is over 50k words) was wonderful. And, oh, the second half of the fic is a lovely continuation of what the first half achieved--it's such a sweet, heart-warming office AU fic where you never doubt that everything will work out and that it'll be perfect and loving and darling, which is exactly what it is. It's a fic about falling in love and just being completely gone on the other person and this instant connection they have that's all-consuming in a heart-warming sort of way.

I loved that it was paced well, that I never felt like it was dragged on for too long, that the events of the story just sailed right along for me, that I hardly felt the time passing at all as I tore my way through this fic, that I was easily engrossed in it. As much as I sort of hate that, because it means the fic is over that much sooner, but also those are the ones that I find that I want to keep reading forever. All of the scenes where they get to know each other's lives or they found themselves in domestic situations, oh, that hit right on my domestic kink, you have no idea. Plus, two sex scenes! And I greatly enjoyed that they both had different tones from each other--where the first one was sweet and gentle, the second one was more intense, more "hurry up and fuck me now", which I always love. This way I get the best of both worlds! And, boy, did they ever need to fuck twice, because I really needed that. I loved this fic a lot and bless the author for writing a long fic that was the right length for the story being told, I feel much better about the fandom all over again.
    Chapters 11: This is an epilogue to the fic, but it sort of reads like a fairly lengthy sequel fic at probably around 10k words. It's a continuation of the story and even the feel of the rest of the fic, which means it's pretty much pure happiness, warmth, joy, and family, all the things I loved about the fic in the first place. It's set three years later, so they have time to have settled into their relationship and their lives, and both their families are in town for Christmas and absolutely every inch of this fic is about happiness. It's the kind of fluff I love, though! It still has substance to it, just that they've worked everything out and figured themselves out and their family is full of love, which is exactly what I wanted.

It continues to read well and, boy, I just absolutely flew through the entire chapter like it was nothing, because the author has a way of pulling me in and wrapping me up in the story until it's done and I don't realize any time has passed at all. With a lot of fluff, it sort of feels like there's no point to it (even if I still like that sort of thing), but here... idk how to describe it, just that it's about the happiness of a relationship that's working out and being with the ones you love and not being able to keep your hands off each other and fucking constantly and nieces and nephews running around underfoot and opening cute Christmas presents and cooking holiday dinners and... and I think it's the details and thought that went into their lives that really makes this a delightful read, because it felt like it was about their lives as a whole, not just the relationship. And that's the best kind of fluff.

Between Us Now, Two Thrown Together by Fickle_Obsessions, chris/tom, NSFW, au, period au, 3.2k
    A picture of Tom got me and a friend all worked up (nothing new). But this time we got together and plotted out a bit of what would happen if that dapper early 20th century Tom went walking and came across a good looking and very forward lower class lad like Chris.
    Period AUs are generally not one of those things that I immediately jump on as an omg give that noooooow!!!11 sort of thing, but I like this author, so, okay, I'll give it a shot. And, sure enough, I got sucked into it quickly and couldn't put it down and, before I knew it, I was rather in love with the story that was being told here. There's just something about the meeting of these two that sparks an intenese attraction between them, even before they know each others' names, beautifully done in that atmosphere of needing it to be a secret, of having the Victorian era over and that repression is starting to really come undone, but not all the way, just that I could feel it. As well as Tom is just... missing something in his life, until he meets Chris and that sense of quitely being entirely restless, not hammered into the readers' heads, but instead felt, that worked really well for me. And that's all before they even get to the final sex scene, which was delicious and entirely satisfying and the reason I picked it up in the first place, but wound up being one of many things I enjoyed about this piece.

this bath tub is unrealistic by Fickle_Obsessions, chris/tom, fluff and angst, 1.8k
    There's not much to this, but it does contain the following in varying amounts: 1) Tom, 2) Chris, 3) Russia, 4) a bath tub, 5) feelings.
    Well, as long as I was reading rpf, I was hardly going to stop with just one fic that night, not when I had this one sitting right next to it on my list.... And this one is more based on reality, except with a stable triad of Tom, Chris, and Elsa and I find myself really kind of sad that there's not more to this one. Not that the fic doesn't stand well on its own, because it does! But there's a brief moment of Tom thinking about all the things the three of them do together and it was just so instantly vibrant in my head and so darling that I wished for 100k words of that cuteness. Though, I do also like how the author gets across the bone-deep tiredness that comes from being on a press tour and the difficult lives they've chosen for themselves, especially as their careers are getting going. There's a moment where I just had so many feelings that these people never really had time to be together and happy, that Chris misses Elsa and India terribly (UGH, MY HEART, JUST HAVE IT, OKAY) and is looking forward to seeing them again, but then is reminded that Tom has to go off elsewhere and it's just. That sense of it never ending was beautifully, subtly done. All of this and a gorgeous quiet intimacy and such easily picturable imagery (good imagery in fic can be terribly difficult to find!) as they share a ridiculously large bathtub and just be for awhile. This was beautifully done.

The Ficlet Dumping Ground by thisdorkyficthing, chris/tom, NSFW, 8k
    A bunch of little drabbles and a few three sentence fics based on prompts and pairings my tumblr followers sent me.
    This fic is going to be terribly difficult for me to describe and do a rec for, because it's several shorter ficlets bundled together. They're all really fun to read and they start off with Thor finding a kitten, which of course Loki wants nothing to do with and then, as was inevitable, he finds himself completely attached to. In a prickly, tetchy sort of way. Then they try to pick out a name for it! And it's not overly saccharine, but instead it's actually sharp and cute and funny! And then there's a lovely Chris/Tom scene that's warm and happy, that's about this intimate moment, just the one scene of a lazy morning, until Tom is fucking himself on Chris' cock and it's even more delicious. Just exactly what I wanted to find from a series of ficlets that included Hiddlesworth! And then there's even Thor and Loki getting married, each of them separately flipping out about it, until they see each other and then everything else is unimportant. The scenes are all of varying length, there's actually a decent variety of interactions and relationships here (Loki also has scenes with Nick Fury, Darcy, and Sif--the Loki and Sif one was especially amazing, for all its brevity) and everything here is just really fun. It's a light read, each of the ficlets are all short, but they make for a tasty set together, each of them charming and well-written. Plus, you know, Chris/Tom porn. I am not going to turn that down.

Throw in the Towel by Velociraptor_Hands, chris/tom, NSFW, spanking, 3.1k
    As if of its own accord, Chris’s hand had swung out and smacked one of Tom’s pale buttocks, leaving behind a startlingly red mark that was quickly fading. There was moment of shocked silence and then Chris opened his mouth to apologize but Tom recovered first, “Did you just….What was that for?”
    This fandom is trying to destroy me. Maybe it's because of all the chemistry between Chris and Tom that fandom has a really strong desire to porn the hell out of them? Or maybe that's just why I crave it for them even more than I do their characters. Whatever the reason, this fandom has been incredibly rewarding with some super hot porn and intensifying kinks I didn't know I had--like making spanking fic really super hot. And I love just how casual and laid back Chris is about how he likes the view he has when Tom's towel slips almost off him, it reminds me of all the times that he's given that smile and friendly shrug in interviews, it was one of those details that just totally made the fic for me.

But it's also the playful banter between them, the way Chris doesn't really know why he swatted Tom the way he did, the way Tom has that spark of michief to him and enjoys goading Chris and Chris enjoys being goaded, this mutual enjoyment they both have for this, and just, oh, I love that. Like, that makes the porn even hotter! Especially when, oh, it's really good porn. More playful banter, then Tom riding Chris, the heat from the earlier spanking adding a bit of a new feel to it, and just-- ugh, leave me here to deal with my feelings for this fandom's wonderful gifts.

Elevators. by MarbleAide, chris/tom, NSFW, wall sex, 2.1k
    Tom and Chris get trapped in an elevator during a storm. They find a way to pass the time.
    Speaking of good porn in this fandom! Sometimes, especially when I'm reading longer genfic (as I'm in the middle of several right now), I just really desperately want to read some good porn. The beginning is a little cliche, with them getting stuck in the elevator and Tom pretty much immediately throws himself onto Chris in fright, but it's hard to complain when it results in them being a tangle on the floor and Chris teasing him about, oh, aren't you supposed to be the level-headed one?, and then deciding the best way to distract Tom is to fuck him right there. Yes. Yes, give me that right now. The fic is a fantastic combination of suggested imagery and actual sex (my favorite being Tom wondering what happens if the lights come back on and Chris answering with, "Then as soon as those doors open, I will carry you down the hall with my dick still in your ass until we get to your room to finish up." because, nope, I'm done, leave me here and go on without me, that kind of possessiveness always gets to me), both playful and intense. The fic is satisfying for being both about that fun dynamic of distracting someone from their anxiety by making them focus on the other person and just really good, delicious, possessive sex. Bless this fandom.

These are all good things for me. *__* It's also a surprisingly sweet dynamic here, combined with utterly filthy sex, which is a perfect combination the way it's balanced here. It's so hot, every which way Chris turns him, whether on his knees or on his back with his legs just about back to his ears, ahhhh. And the nurse's uniform! And red panties! Just. Guh. Super hot and sweet enough to make me feel light-hearted and joyful. So very good for me, mm.

    This was another short one, but it was very light-hearted and fun! It's all about those long days of summer that seem to last forever and yet fly by at the same time. And it's about the slowly building attraction between Chris and Tom that sweetly comes to a head, everything easy and low-pressure, which made this a joy to read. I probably would have loved it just for the image of Chris and Tom in those waistcoats, but it really was a lovely piece that just made me feel good after reading it.

30 Day OTP Porn Challenge - Rimming by amberfox17 [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, NSFW, au, rimming, 2.2k
    The fact that Ewan had insisted on embracing his Scottish heritage and putting Chris, as best man, in a matching kilt is another thing he’s not particularly thrilled with, although he will admit privately that having a furry purse strapped to his belt is genuinely useful. At least Tom is here as an usher, to keep him company and do a much better job of being ‘that nice young man’ to Ewan’s hordes of relatives, and it means that Chris isn’t the only bloke in a skirt besides the groom and the four-year-old pageboy.
    So apparently tonight is the night for reading rimming fic and I am pretty much 100% okay with this, especially when it's so ridiculously hot. I love how happy and enthusiastic it is here, how much Chris just utterly and completely loves Tom's ass, how much he enjoys Tom's reactions to it, how sensitive he is and how Chris can make him nearly come from just this, how you can feel the affection between both of them here. But also because it's just ridiculously hot, the kind of writing that clearly embraces what it's doing, that's detailed and happily filthy about it

Risky Business by Ange_de_la_Mort, chris/tom, NSFW, 1.1k
    After Tom wins his Empire Award, Chris feels slightly jealous.
    This was a short but very nice piece and the kind of rpf that I'm more used to--the kind that's based on the moments we see in an interview (or at an awards show, in this case) and spinning a story from there. I have such affection for that kind of connection to a real event, especially working in little details of what happened there (like how Tom was adorable and perfect and kissing his award) from my time in Japanese boyband rpf fandoms and this fic uses it to great effect. It's an excuse for backstage blowjobs, but it's also about the delicious kind of jealousy that I love so much and the attraction between them and the satisfying porn, it's about the emotions driving the porn as much as it is about the porn itself. But, yeah, also the really nicely done imagery, the way it's all too easy to picture everything here, the little details blended in with the actual actions itself--my favorite being the way Chris finds Tom's hair too short currently and how he thinks about he can't wait until they grow back so he can grab onto them with his fingers again. A little detail but the kind that makes everything so much more tasty.

    It’s a laborious process, driving Chris to distraction.
    I have many favorite kinks/tropes in fandom, I'll admit. But that doesn't make it any less true when I flail over any given one and talk about how intensely I love this one--where one character doesn't want to be treated gently, so they drive the other to distraction until they snap and fuck them properly. And, oh, this fic did a beautiful job of that trope, where Chris is patient and calm with Tom, which is nice, but not what he really wants. So, he begins a bit of a game, finding ways to keep them at arm's length or he's too busy for anything righ then, always fraying a bit away at Chris' patience, until he finally snaps and just takes Tom and, oh, yes, that's so good for me right there. I love that kind of dynamic, I love the build up and the tension of it, I love that moment when it finally breaks, I love the rough sex that results from it, which this fic all did really well. I love the sense of teasing, that Tom kind of enjoys watching Chris suffer, not in a cruel way, but in a delightful mischievous way, especially when the sex is super hot when it finally happens, that sense of a dam finally, finally breaking really nicely done for me. Very hot, very satisfying, a really good read for me tonight.

Of Cops and Hostages by anonymous, chris/tom, au, cop au, 1.5k
    The barrel of the gun presses into his side as a gloved hand yanks his arm behind him. He swallows a wince at the motion, and this only seems to spur the robber into shoving the gun even harder into his side.
    This is a short, three-part AU with Tom being taken hostage at a bank robbery and Officer Hemsworth being one of the police to help deal with the situation and it's just a quick thing, it's about the scenario itself (though, the aftermath would have been fun to see, as their relationship developed, but that wasn't what this was about) and one of those intense moments of your life, the life-changing ones. Plus, the ending was so cute, with traumatized Tom and just kind of going for it, when the police officer is obviously interested in him and I just kind of-- fell in love with them all over again? Plus, oh, man, Tom with a police officer boyfriend. That's going to give me a lot ot think about for awhile now.

    Ahhh, I love it when fic takes little snippets of interviews and writes fic around the details we learn! And, oh, Tom being hopped up on Red Bull and vodka, being so affectionate and wanting to dance and Chris can't refuse him and the light touches of dancing and grinding against each other are lovely here.

    Chris never asks if Tom has lost someone before - he doesn’t want to offend him if he hasn’t - but he can’t shake the feeling that Tom never expects them to have another day together.
    I love how much these five sentences fics can convey, especially when they have a bit of a bittersweet tone to them, the way it doesn't have to entirely examine everything that motivates Tom, especially since this is a Chris pov, but it's about Chris being patient and slowly showing him that it's worth it to open up to the possibility of holding onto someone. Plus, oh, the sex interwoven with the piece, not just added on but actually part of it, all in five sentences. Yes, lovely.

    Chris teaches Tom a lesson.
    I really adored this fic today, because I love really good kissing and I love the balance between Chris, Tom, and Elsa that really quietly worked for me here. I love the scenes of Chris and Elsa in flashbacks, the way she's such a good influence and they way they're also just so in love and so darling, the way everyone loves everyone. But then Chris nudges Tom into learning how to kiss open-mouthed properly and it's just. Kissing, kissing, and more kissing. I felt delightfuly floaty and warm after reading this.

    Speaking of things that I don't usually read or didn't expect to find that hot! But, jesus fuck that was hot. This fandom (and this rpf pairing) is destroying any boundaries for kinks that I thought I had. Especially the final lines, jeez.

Good Puppy by marble-aide, chris/tom, NSFW, puppy play, 3.5k
    It’s become routine by now, whenever Tom starts to lose himself it’s placed on Chris’s shoulders to bring him back into reality.
    I found this far hotter than I expected to, honestly. I feel like it should have given me secondhand embarrassment or just not been my cup of tea or something, but... I think a lot of it was the willingness that Tom had here, that Chris had as well, that both of them were turned on as hell by the puppy play, that it felt soothing to Tom and he wanted this. It's probably not going to be for everyone, but I found it alternating between surprisingly sweet and kind of hot as fuck when they'd played for awhile and then finally wanted to actually fuck, especially with the addition of a few toys in the mix. It's like. Kink that's really kind of got an edge of sweetness. That's what really made it for me. That and the sex being really hot, that's always nice, too.

    It’s almost too sweet, the way they kiss like hey haven’t seen each other in months when in fact they’d bid one another farewell just that morning as they’d both ambled off to work.
    Oh, this was totally sweet! Like, sometimes you think that RPF fic shouldn't be sweet, that that's not what I'm here for, but then... well, I love happiness and sweetness and two people just being completely enamored with each other in a way that makes everyone else around them sick. I love that Chris and Tom light up when they see each other again, there's that warm intimacy between them, despite that they only had parted just that morning. It's just pure sunshine and happiness. ♥

    When they can’t all be together, they make do.
    I was excited about this one from the moment I saw it was Chris/Elsa/Tom and pegging and, boy, this fic did not disappoint. I love love love when an author can make these people a steady trio together, I love love love when Elsa gets to be lovely and awesome, and I love love love when the Tom/Elsa side is explored as well as the Chris/Elsa side. But a video chat where they surprise him with the gift of Elsa pegging the fuck out of Tom? l;asdkfja;lja no, no, go on without me, I'm just going to be on the floor unable to move for the satisfaction of having read something so perfectly hot that I'm done now. It was also really sweet and, oh, I love that Chris was turned on by both of them, of Elsa being beautiful and charming, of Tom making those needy little noises they both knew so well, the details worked in and how suddenly he wasn't tired at all and really wanted to be there with them and wants to touch both of them and just. Oh, man, this was really fucking hot. Elsa pegging Tom fic, I did not think this is something I would get in my lifetime, but now it's here and I can be happy.

Balls on the Table by kimmu, chris/tom, NSFW, 4k
    No one beats Tom Hiddleston at table tennis. No one.
    Do you know what I really intensely love? When there's the implication that one character is a manipulative little shit to get what they want, especially if it involves being fucked while bent over a ping-pong table. Like, I love the friendly rivalry between Tom and Chris, I love that nobody beats Tom at table tennis (someone being really good at something is always a favorite of mine), and of course I came here for the sex, which was super goddamned hot as Chris orders Tom to bend over the table and hold his position and then teases him a little before properly fucking him. All of that is really super good for me, but it's the way Tom goads him further along, the way he likes what Chris is doing, the way they both really enjoy this, that just makes it even hotter. Mischievous!Tom getting the proper fucking that he wants is pretty much always and forever going to be a favorite of mine and this fic does a lovely job of it.

A Show of Battle Scars by MarbleAide, chris/tom, NSFW, rough sex, 1.3k
    The cast likes to show off their injuries around the dinner table. Some, however, are more inappropriate then others.
    This is such a cute idea, the cast showing off their different injuries that they've gotten over the course of filming an action movie, especially when comparing them to previous mentions of bodily harm that they've accidentally inflicted on each other (which I feel badly about, but are also kind of great stories), which eventually turns into a discussion of how, hm, those don't look like normal action scene bruises and cuts... which, cue realization about just what kind of marks they actually are. Yes, good. This is good for me. I'd have liked it for the cuteness of that, where they're all just so delighted to share war stories, as it were, that they don't quite keep it together, but then there's also a bonus scene of just how Chris and Tom got those marks at the end of the fic--with Chris fucking Tom pretty thoroughly in their hotel room, just intense enough that it's a little rough and leaves marks. It's short, but delightful!

PAIRINGS/CHARACTERS: Chris/Tom, alpha/beta/omega, knotting!fic, NSFW
    Chris wakes up smelling an Omega in heat and can't for the life of him think of who it might be until, of course, it hits him. Tom.
    This is one of those fics where you either say to yourself, "Holy shit, I want to read that RIGHT NOW." or else you just scroll on by. I fall into the former category and that is why this fic was so good for me because, whatever, I fucking love alpha/beta/omega tropes because I fucking love really intense, desperate sex that nearly borders on "fuck or die". Which this fic does well, as it's entirely a pwp with just enough context thrown in that you understand why this isn't precisely a happy fic (though, I choose to think that eventually they work their stuff out and then they're bonded forever, shhhh, I can think what I want!). The point is on that painfully sharp edge of tension between them right before they fuck, where they both are desperately aching for this, it's nearly consuming them, and that is the best part about this story, the way it delivers that absolute need they both have for this. By the time Tom's worked himself open and then Chris is fucking him, it's just really, really super hot and I'm so delighted by this fandom.

    “I’m thinking too hard about this… I’m paying him to come here. He’s not going to give a shit about what I’m wearing.” He groaned, his fingers moving to massage his temples. “Okay, maybe the blue shirt, just not tucked in…”
    Ahhhh, this fic was so good for me, it's a really fun combination of cute and porny. Tom being nervous about his first time with a man, hiring a prostitute, being unsure of what clothes to wear, Chris being much smoother and more sure of how to handle things, all of that is delightful and good for me. I would have enjoyed it just for that, but it's also the porn that came along with the fic, both for just being really good, satisfying, super hot porn, but also because I love it when a character is so super turned on by the way the other person touches them. It's a great combination of Chris liking him and wanting him to feel good and making sure he's enjoying this and Tom really, really likes the way Chris touches him so surely and directly and just spreads him open and fucks him thoroughly and the intense sex that follows because of it. All of that, with just enough sweetness and cuteness to make my heart happy, too. Just. Yes, give me that always.

Marriage Counseling by isaytheenay, chris/tom + chris/elsa, au, 42k wip
    Chris and Elsa are having problems. Arguments between them have escalated and the once-happy marriage has become a burden for them both. India, their three-year old child, is the only reason they have stayed together for so long, but even that isn’t a permanent solution. At Elsa’s request on a last chance to save their marriage, they decide to go to a renowned marriage counselor, Tom Hiddleston. The meetings between Chris and Tom start from strictly business to something more… personal.
    An anon sent me a message about this fic the other night and, well, as long as I was reading Hiddlesworth fic, I figured I'd give it a shot. I promptly read all 17k of the first three chapters and then sat in emotional frustration that I didn't have the rest of it immediately in front of me, because I wanted to read all of it right now. It's a difficult situation that's set up here and the author does justice to two relationships vying against each other and that there aren't really any bad guys, but that doesn't mean that people won't get hurt. I went into this wary of getting my heart broken, because how can it work out when Chris and Elsa are married with a child, but my heart will obviously want Chris and Tom together?

The fic definitely capitalized on that feeling of being torn and I love that Elsa isn't demonized at all, even when Chris is angry at her or when he fears what she'll do, the narrative makes it pretty clear that we're just in his head, so we're seeing this through his gaze, and that doesn't always reflect her feelings. She's trying, probably more than he is by this point, and the fic doesn't excuse that he's a major part of the problem in their lack of connection. And that's why I'm both fearful of this fic and rather in love with it, because it's a portrait of a relationship falling apart in the way relationships just do sometimes, all the more painful when a child is involved and half of the relationship just doesn't believe it can be fixed and a new attraction/new feelings for someone else are starting up. It's complicated and messy all the way around, which this fic doesn't shy away from.

My only caveat is that the updates will probably only be every other week and, while 17k is pretty lengthy and I found it satisfying to read and the individual chapters should all be fairly decently sized, if you really hate waiting between chapters, this one will be waiting for you at a later date. Meanwhile, I'm going to read as it comes out and pine away for a magic wand to fix things, because I'm a sap like that. Plus, I just really like the build up of the relationship between Chris and Tom, there's no bad guys there, either, just two people who hit it off, Tom being really sweet and good-natured and genuinely wanting to help, so you can't really blame anyone for falling for him. God knows, I certainly couldn't resist.

    Not precisely Hiddlesworth, but close enough to count, so I'm sticking this rec in this section anyway. This is pure kink fic (with still lovely characterization, though!), with bondage and a little pain play and so, so very hot. I love that it starts out with a woman, but then switches over to Chris with Nicholls and how enthusiastic everyone here is! It's beautifully written and maybe not my usual kink, but not less ridiculously hot for it. There's something almost sweet about the kink here and that's the way I love it best and why I encourage the reading of this one even if the kinks aren't usually yours, because it's also about the sex and how much both of them like this and how turned on they both are and how happy they both are to be here and who doesn't love beautifully written enthusiastic sex!

Also, oh, man, Tom wearing the Loki outfit one last time, while Chris fucks him as he's bent over the arm of the sofa, just. I will read that for always, especially when the author conveys a sense of urgency and intimacy, a familarity that doesn't mean a lack of passion, which is just as good as the actual porn part of the sex for me. The mutual enthusiasm and how Tom wants it so desperately and Chris works him open and then fucks him just. Unf, yes, so super good for me, both emotionally and porn-wise.

    The next rest stop was further than Tom had anticipated. He headed west, following the road, though truthfully he had no idea which direction he was following or how far he was from the next anything.
    Fuck, that was ridiculously satisfying. This was a fantastic combination of filthy and sweet, a bit like a porn fantasy but with heart and something like the start of love and it's all so perfect. The underage aspect didn't bother me because, despite that itw as part of the draw to this Tom, being sixteen and looking so freshly on the cusp of adulthood, that wasn't what made the relationship tick here, even if it did make twink!Tom all the hotter. (As well as he was sixteen, which is plenty old enough for his sex drive to have kicked in without it being too squicky for me.)

The writing was lovely and, oh, the sex was scorchingly hot, for the size difference/size kink and how intense the fucking was and the thoughts Tom had in while it happened. The thoughts of a home life with Chris, all the ways they would fuck and the contrast of a sweet, domestic life with the filthy thoughts he had, all the ways they would fuck was just... jfc. There's also a few moments where Chris is just looking at Tom, after not having pressed him into this, but Tom wanted it, even as he's new at this and not used to such scrutiny, where Chris pushes his knees back to expose him and the sense of physical intimacy in that moment is amazingly hot. While this might have made me uncomfortable in another author's hands, here, it just hit all the right notes.

He’d just gotten the promotion of a lifetime after years of hard work, slowly making his way up the corporate ladder, from lowly intern working absurd hours and making copies to having his own office with view that made him get why some of these guys got on weird power trips.
    Speaking of fic that's just purely fun! Goddamn, do I love AU fics and this was a good example of why that is, because it's just so much charm and joy to read. Office AUs aren't that common in this fandom, which is a shame, because you can see how delightful they are in the right author's hands, especially when it's a light-hearted story about two characters working together in the office and dealing with their attraction to each other. The fic does a lovely job of staying in that light-hearted area without making it too sweet or sugary, instead there's just enough pining to keep it interesting--plus Tom helping Chris pick out the best suit to wear to a business meeting!--until the tension finally breaks between them. The sex was just as delightful, because they were fucking in an office closet during the Christmas party and if you don't want to read that fic immediately, especially when it's satisfying porn and Chris is a dork and Tom is an amazing assistant, well, then I'm not sure how to help you.

    Chris was giddy, there was no other way to put it. No amount of pinching costume, caked make-up and itchy hair extensions could put his good mood out. There were good parts of playing Thor, there were bad parts of playing Thor and then there was Tom. We are back.
    This was super fun, with a great mixture of their roles that they play and the easy chemistry they have, which was conveyed really well here! It's such a smooth and satisfying read, so playful and fun (with brief moments of angst, of course) and some really hot blowjobs and handjobs. It could have veered into awkward/secondhand embarrassment territory when they first discuss the attraction between them, but the fic sticks to the light-hearted well enough (without being too saccharine sweet) that I just wholly loved it and it was good. Everything about it was good and happy making and adorable and fun and sexy! It's a great read after all the promotional material lately, it really fits the tone of the ship perfectly.

30 Day OTP Porn Challenge! - Oral by amberfox17 [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, NSFW, catboy!tom, 2.9k
    Chris has almost, almost finished job three of the sixteen on his to-do list when he hears a dull thud from the living room and a distinctive, displeased yowl. This is swiftly followed by another thud. And another yowl. And again: thud and now a louder yowl. Thud. Longer, louder, the-world-will-end-if-no-one-pays-attention-to-me-yowl and ok, Chris has had enough.
    This is everything I want out of Hiddlesworth fic, right down to the clear affection for demand little shit cats, which is so much fun. You can tell the fic and the author both have great affection for cats, that they like them for their behaviors, not in spite of them, and that resonates with me on a spiritual level. I love, though, that this isn't just (for example) Lokitty fic masquerading as Hiddlesworth fic, because catboy!Tom is openly affectionate, if still in a very cat-like way, which is another reason the fic works so well for me. But then there's also wall sex and mutual blowjobs and tail porn and all these little moments were Tom is such a cat. Like, I really cannot express how great that was or how much pure joy it was, how it was just the right balance of everything.

One very special cat by amberfox17, chris/tom, nsfw, catboy!chris, 17.3k
    Catboy Chris AU: Tom wasn't even sure he wanted a Hybrid, yet somehow he's ended up taking home a six-foot Feline/Human cross named Chris who likes bacon, ear scratches and sleeping naked. This is going to be a problem.
    I've been distracted by other things lately, so I hadn't read much Hiddlesworth lately and this one languished on my reader for a bit. In a way, though, I'm glad about that because it means I had it on hand for when I read the catboy!Tom fic previously and totally wanted more of that kind of thing. And, oh, this was so much fun! I whipped through it in practically one sitting because I absolutely could not put it down and because the pacing of it is perfect, where it just sails right along and devotes just the right amount of time to each scene that's necessary. It also amazes me how well the background worldbuilding was worked in, all the little details that painted a fuller picture of this world, all without... trying too hard, without losing that sense of sheer joy and delight at writing a catboy fic.

It also amazed me how well Chris works as a cat here, which I wouldn't have thought at first, but I had zero trouble seeing it while reading this, because balanced stereotypical cat aspects with ones that were more unique to Chris and that worked for me. It's genuinely a glorious fic and it reads amazingly and it strikes such a great balance of how the Hybrids are human-like but definitely not human, while still not making it weird or creepy. I had feelings while reading this, one of those I JUST SHIP THEM SO HAA-AA-AARD moments when they bonded with each other, when Tom grew to love Chris and how well they fit together. Plus, oh, man, it wasn't super lengthy sex, but Chris being one of those big cats that just holds Tom up against the wall while fucking him? Nnnghh. I needed a minute to recover after that.

All At Sea by curds_and_wheyface, chris/tom, NSFW, au, 9.2k
    Tom spends a month after University graduation in Cambodia. There he finds a lot of rain, a dubious-looking tourist boat and a man named Chris.
    Oh, this was the perfect read for me tonight! It's a gorgeously written piece that does a beautiful job of building up the attraction between Chris and Tom, who meet while Tom is on vacation in Cambodia, where there's just enough detail about the scenery around them, the things Tom does on his vacation and the places he stops at, to lend a really lovely, lush feeling to the story. That works together with the sense of... I hesitate to say it's a light-hearted fic, but it sort of is? In a really good way, without giving up the heavier tone to it, at the same time. There's something almost lonely or bittersweet about this Tom, but that things are turning towards the better, even when nothing is really wrong. I love fic that can be written in such a clean, smooth way, but still give me that feeling of so many undercurrents that aren't being directly said, it's my favorite style of writing to read!

But mostly it's just a really good story and then there's ridiculously hot porn, the kind that I actually had to stop mid-reading because I wanted to set it aside for the last thing I read tonight, as I knew it would ruin me. And it pretty much did, especially when Chris parted Tom's cheeks to lick him open before sliding his cock in and just. Hnnnngh, super hot and ridiculously good. The chemistry between these two people is perfectly captured here, everything has this fantastic charisma to it, and it's gorgeously written. I practically sighed dreamily afterwards and I don't regret that a bit.

30 Day OTP Porn Challenge - Rimming by amberfox17 [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, NSFW, au, rimming, 2.2k
    The fact that Ewan had insisted on embracing his Scottish heritage and putting Chris, as best man, in a matching kilt is another thing he’s not particularly thrilled with, although he will admit privately that having a furry purse strapped to his belt is genuinely useful. At least Tom is here as an usher, to keep him company and do a much better job of being ‘that nice young man’ to Ewan’s hordes of relatives, and it means that Chris isn’t the only bloke in a skirt besides the groom and the four-year-old pageboy.
    So apparently tonight is the night for reading rimming fic and I am pretty much 100% okay with this, especially when it's so ridiculously hot. I love how happy and enthusiastic it is here, how much Chris just utterly and completely loves Tom's ass, how much he enjoys Tom's reactions to it, how sensitive he is and how Chris can make him nearly come from just this, how you can feel the affection between both of them here. But also because it's just ridiculously hot, the kind of writing that clearly embraces what it's doing, that's detailed and happily filthy about it

come pick me up by vikingsongs [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, mildly nsfw, 2.5k
    They returned to the hotel with little time to spare before their flight to Paris. Tom was still giddy from the after party, his skin buzzing with barely concealed energy, his movements jittery as he shifted his weight from foot to foot. Next to him, in the lift, Chris was slumped down in exhaustion, dragging a hand over his face as he steadied himself against the lift’s continual whir and churn.
    I love fic that really has a certain feel to it, that I can pick up on the mood of the piece, like how I really feel their exhaustion and yet intense desire for each other, that pull between the two of them. The writing is lovely and does so much with physical intimacy that's not just about sex, but truly capturing that feel of the rest of the world receding when the other person touches you or when you can touch them. This isn't terribly explicit, yet I found it ridiculously hot and just lovely, when they were kissing or pressing themselves together in the bed, like the world was just made of them. I felt that, rather than was told that, which is one of those things that I am forever weak to when it comes to fic.

First Blood by umakoo, chris/tom, NSFW, vampire au, blood drinking/bloodplay, some dub con elements, 14.9k
    Tom's life turns upside down when Chris, a newly turned vampire, stumbles in through his bedroom window one January morning to escape the sunrise.
    Oh, I'm going to write a terrible rec for this, despite that I feel there's so much to say, because I love Nora's writing ridiculously, there is always so much thought and careful, casual detail that goes into every scene she writes, there's a purpose for everything and there's reasons for everything, even if it's just because it's a thing she likes--like vampires!! and all the vampire tropes that come with them!--and that's a lovely thing to find in a fic writer. The overall plot of this is delightful, because it's a modern take on vampires, it turns a few of the usual tropes and expected characterizations around a bit, but not without keeping that sense of id-pleasing vampirism tropes that you're reading the fic for in the first place! What I mean is that, sure, it's a vampire fic and all that comes with it, but it's also a very human piece, it's a lovely blend of both supernatural and completely relatable reactions to it, from both Tom and Chris himself.

There's also a lot of domesticity in this fic, which you know me, I eat that up because it's so good for my soul and because this writer does it so very well, it's just... comfortable and happy and warm-hearted, so that even when there's genuine angst or hurt or frustration at not knowing what to do, it's still trending in a good direction and you know it'll work out. I love love love Nora's Tom here, because he's just so polite and accomodating and British in the way he reacts to Chris and all that happens. I love the balance between Chris not really knowing what the actual fuck has happened to him so is understandably confused, but there's also this really powerful new set of urges he has, and with another fic that might have felt like mood whiplash, but here--here, it feels like a natural back and forth, a natural progress and backslide at times. There is some switching in the fic (which I figure a lot of my recs readers/users would like a heads up on), one scene with Tom fingering Chris in the bath and then a later scene where Chris penetrates Tom, but if that's a turn-off for you, you can skim over either scene easily without losing the plot of the fic.

The other thing I like is that way this fic doesn't feel the need to nail everything down. For all that there's a lot of detail and thought given to the vampires of this world (which means a lot of room to explore where they're going with this!), it's not really easy for them to know what to expect, because there's no guidelines for this and no one to mentor them with it. I really like that they sort of have to figure this out as they go, they deal with things as they come up, and it never feels vague or unsatisfying for this! And, yeah, okay, when Chris' vampire instincts get really predatory and territorial, THAT IS MY JAM THERE, I love the scenes that have Chris backing Tom up against walls and the threat of him biting into Tom is very real, because that does happen. There's some dub con early on in the fic, but the thing that's interesting about the story is that it's pretty clear it's dub con for both of them, that there's this whole set of urges that Chris never asked for taking him over and it does go too far because he doesn't know how to deal with it. And that adds a nice layer of genuine danger (and if dub con, even the working through it and having them work to get over it, squicks you, then it's perfectly understandable to skip this one, even if I would say it's not quite the same usual dub con warning) and gives a nice way to show the progress of the characters and their relationship. Plus, oh, man, the ending is just really lovely and sweet and happy and domestic, in a way the fic really earned for me.

Lock It Up and Leave by curds_and_wheyface, chris/tom, NSFW, military au, 4.8k
    Military AU in which Chris is a Lance Corporal stationed overseas who may or may not have a thing for his Lieutenant.
    This author is such a treasure in this fandom and this is another gorgeous AU that is sharp and clever and immediately sucked me right into it. Even though it's really just about the sex, the story still feels well detailed and like there's a whole world there, which makes for a richer and more rewarding read! Bu, oh, it's when Tom climbs into Chris' lap to rid his cock with a fury that I just about exploded from the ridiculously hot fucking. I love how Tom chases what he wants and touches himself and I love how Chris fucks up into him all the harder for it and just. Unf. A must read in this fandom!

    Sometimes, at the end of their workday, Tom would come home carrying an opaque plastic bag with no label. When this happened Chris would follow Tom into their bedroom, they’d strip to their boxers and Chris would give Tom a full body massage. After that Chris would get to see what was in the bag.
    The fic needs a bit of editing to clean it up and it's definitely a pwp fic, but, wow, did I enjoy this one a lot. Anal beads aren't always easy to make sexy, but I found them very hot here, the sense of fun and enjoyment in the writing, the way Tom writhed from Chris' touch, how on edge he was the whole time--! Yes, this was so good for me. *__*

terrible driver tom + driving instructor chris by amberfox17 [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, NSFW, ~1k
    There’s a horrible clanking noise as the car shudders to yet another halt, engine stuttering as it stalls. Chris resists the urge to bang his head against the window. He is never, ever doing anyone a favour ever again.
    This fic is short, but it's such a great moment between these two, where it's such quality flirting, that kind where it's just a bit silly, so it's adorable and puts a smile on my face, but also entirely charming and genuinely delightful. Semi-inspired by Tom's appearance on Top Gear, I love the details of the driving and how bad Tom is at it and how that leas to cheeky!Tom offering other things in payment and just. Chris kissing him and Tom goading Chris into more, it's perfection and utterly charming as hell.

Going to be Your Last by curds_and_wheyface [ mobile ver. ], chris/tom, NSFW, mention of previous underage (late teenager), 1.9k
    Chris’ boyfriend has been out dancing.
    Oh, this was so excellent for me, because I love this kind of relationship, the playful banter and the not-serious crabbing, the total trust between them, even as Chris doesn't want to hear about other guys Tom was dancing with. There's also a great desription of Tom's dancing that made me laugh, but it was also the sex that really made this fic excellent. I love a happy, demanding, cheeky shit Tom who cheerfully announces that he's going to get fucked and then proceeds to ride the hell out of Chris' cock and it's just so sexy and fun that I never want this author to leave the fandom. SO GOOD.

    He knows the story by heart: a great and fearsome beast lives alone in an enchanted castle. The castle sits atop a hill and overlooks the city, a dark smudge in the horizon eclipsing the sun. Every year a virgin girl is brought, crying and wailing, to the beast’s door, her name drawn at random, from a list of other virgin-girl names.
    Chris/Tom steampunk Beauty and the Beast AU written by vikingsongs. Let me the fuck at this fic right the fuck now! I see absolutely nothing here that does not make me instantly want to read it, because I love all of these things. And it's only one chapter so far, so it's largely just set-up at the moment, we don't even meet Chris properly yet, but I love it and I love the beginnings of it and I love the bits of background world here and the promise for what could be in store! It's sheer delight to read and I love it. ♥
