What I've Been Reading - W/E 01 FEB 2019
Still on "A Dying Light in Corduba" by Lindsey Davis
Still re-reading "Frederica" by Georgette Heyer
Discovered a new fandom and a bunch of new authors this week, so there's a certain... theme in here. If you've never played or are only partway through Persona 5, a lot of these fics are as spoilery as all hell. You have been warned.
It’s a Compliment, Really by Moczo - Persona 5 smutfic. This one is hilarious, and it's clear the author has done a lot of good research watching bad pornography so the rest of us don't have to.
Freudian Slip by TwilightKnight17 - Persona 5 angst fic.
late night, brakes lock (hear the tires squeal) by fall_into_life - Persona 5, non-sexual three-way service submission.
plot contrivances by unsungillumination - Persona 5 fic, done from a prompt mix, and very well crafted. I particularly enjoyed the protagonist of the game being vaguely genre-savvy throughout the story.
contact buzz by beesandtoes - Persona 5 pining fic. This one is a companion piece to a long thread of Twitter roleplay stuff, so I strongly suggest people read that as well, for the wider context. (The twitter roleplay has a glorious moment of one character trolling another by threatening to live-tweet the second of the Star Wars prequels).
Rank Up! by beesandtoes - P5 again, this time it's a bit of a fix-it fic, where a certain piece of gameplay is taken straight.
Once More, With Feeling by beesandtoes - P5, first chapter of a "Groundhog Day" style fix-it.
ashes and ruin by SpookyVern - P5, AU fixit.
Be Bold by Blackwings91 - P5, fluff fic, heterosexual first kiss. Very cute, and very much in character for both of the characters.
Through Another’s Eyes by Miles_to_Hastings - P5 WIP soul-bond body-swap AU.
Fourth Wheel by HamToasT - P5, double-date, heterosexual.
New Game + by Tayani - P5 WIP long fic New Game + AU fix-it - or in other words, the protagonist has prior knowledge of what's going to happen, and uses that in their efforts to fix up their reality. This gets as syrupy as all heck as we go further through things, so be warned. Also, Tayani has the besetting literary sin of referring to the protagonist of the Persona 5 game using the epithet of "the raven" on a reasonably frequent basis, rather than by name. At least it isn't "ravenette"?
Of Courage, Promotion and Skirmishes: A Narrative by Captain Strife, Vol II by Gotham’s_Only_Wolf - FF7 AU fix-it series WIP. Latest chapter in the work in progress. Learn how two eight-year olds and a robot cat can improve the situational awareness of the Shinra military.
NG+ Chapter 29,5 by Tayani - P5, side story (reverse-shot type - other main character's point of view) for her New Game + fic listed above.
NG+ Chapter 34,5 by Tayani - P5, side story (reverse-shot) for her New Game + fic listed above. This is basically a slashy erotic interlude; you have been warned.
Beautiful Ones by Tayani - P5 post-game fix-it. Emotional hurt/comfort.
Fifth time’s the charm by Tayani - P5 Four times Akechi didn't get invited up to the attic of Leblanc, and one time he did. Pre-slash.
I always knew by Tayani - P5 fic-it hurt/comfort.
Love is Blind by Tayani - P5 smutfic, slash, unrevealed identities.
Dare me by Tayani - P5 "truth or dare" getting-them-together fic.
May You Never by Tayani - P5 friendship fic
Immersion by Tayani - P5 AU, mild erotica, slashy implications.
Moments of Calm by Tayani - P5 post-game AU family fic.
Time Limit by Tayani - P5 slash, explicit.
Study of Perception by Tayani - P5 m/m erotica, using a different pairing to her usual one. I'd class this as "soft porn" rather than anything else; it's more about the emotions than the plumbing, so to speak.
Spinning in your Eyes by Tayani - P5 getting-them-together fic, this time it's the "in vino veritas" version.
Butterfly Dance by Tayani - P5 slash, cross-dressing, explicit erotic content.
Snowflakes by Tayani - P5 retail AU schmoop.
Cradled in Love by Tayani - P5 retail AU schmoopy erotica.
Where Dreams Come True by Tayani - P5 retail AU schmoopy erotica.
So, that's what I've been reading. What about everyone else? Any recommendations?
