So, somehow in over five years of LJing I've never compiled a list of my favorite fanfics. I tend to save stories to my hard drive (and now I upload them to my kindle) which might be why I haven't bothered to rec them here.

This is a WIP. Check back for updates!

So, in order by fandom:

Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Title/Link: The Gift of Sorrow
Author: The Rainbow Writers
Rating: PG, later chapters NC-17, all clearly noted
Pairing(s): Willow/Tara, gen
Spoilers:Everything up to and including all of season six.
Warnings/Triggers: Psychic trauma, depression, medication
Summary: It would be fair to say that the events in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Six created a schism in the fan base of this popular show. Not only did it divide all of the existing couples, it killed one of the most recent popular members of the cast, dragged one of the shows most beloved characters to the very depths of her soul, making her someone that people hardly recognized and made fans watch the moral demise of the slayer herself. It was a very hard season to watch, and caused many long term fans turn away from the show. We, like many were unhappy with the progress this season began, and decided to write our own next season, to address some of the issues that we felt needed righting. This story is the result.

The other chapters can be found HERE, towards the bottom.

Title/Link: The Silken Cage
Author: Margot LeFey
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): Buffy/Angelus
Spoilers: AU after season three, with small nods to the first few episodes of season four.
Warnings/Triggers:Highlight to read (spoiler warning) Non-con, rape, abuse, fetish, bondage, blood play. If you want nice fic where all is sweetness, light and fluffy, consensual and happy with frolicking kittens, or in which Angelus is tamed by his love for the Slayer and turns into a slightly more cranky version of Angel, you have come to exactly the wrong place. However, this is one of the most erotic and compelling stories I have ever read. If you can handle the themes, I promise you will not be disappointed with the story.
Summary: Angelus is back and he's taking what's his.
NOTE: Margot's site was taken down in June. She is currently planning on restoring her fics, but for now they are offline. You can find them via The Way Back Machine, or I have a few saved as pdfs. Feel free to contact me if you want to read them, and I'll make sure you're hooked up.

Title/Link: The Lamb
Author: Tara the Phoenix
Rating: PG - NC-17
Pairing: Willow/Tara
Spoilers: Canon up to Chosen, except Tara never came to Sunnydale.
Warnings: None
Summary: Tara is a hospice nurse in Los Osos, California about to get a new patient: Willow Rosenberg, the sole survivor of the Sunnydale implosion.
Notes: This fic is epic and glorious. The characterizations are exquisite, the plot is twisty and intricate and surprising. One of the best epic length fics I've had the pleasure of reading.

Title/Link: Season Four Behind the Scenes
Author: SpikeMe4Now
Rating: PG, later parts NC-17
Pairing(s): Willow/Tara
Spoilers: All of season four
Warnings/Triggers: None that I remember
Summary: Detailed focus of Willow and Tara's relationships, filling in and extending scenes from each episode, following cannon.

Title/Link: Better Luck with Girls
Author: [ profile] shrift

Author: [ profile] leonhart_17
Timing: Post Series
Rating: PG/PG-13
Pairing: Willow/Faith
Warnings: None
Summary: Willow has something she needs to tell Buffy and Xander about who she’s been sleeping with...
Notes: I’m new to the idea of Faith/Willow, but this story is sweet, playful and honest and has made me ship them like burning. [ profile] leonhart_17 is first and foremost a W/T shipper and she writes this story with great respect for Tara.

Title/Link: i burned safe and warm in your arms
Author: [ profile] webofseaweed
Rating: NC17
Pairing(s): Willow/Faith
Spoilers: none
Warnings/Triggers: none
Summary: Willow isn’t gay. Sure, Faith’s hand is up her skirt at the moment, and sure, she’s enjoying herself, but that doesn’t mean anything. Anyone would get all hot and bothered if a hottie like Faith was feeling them up.

Title/Link: By Design
Author: [ profile] beer_good_foamy
Rating: PG13
Pairing(s): Mr Pointy/Faith's knife
Spoilers: post The Gift
Warnings/Triggers: none
Summary: They're both here by accident. They were supposed to be someone else's, they were supposed to be something else. Made to kill, made to protect. And yet here they are, gathering dust at the bottom of a weapons' chest. And what's a weapon once it's clear that it'll never be a weapon again

Title/Link: Conversations with Another Dead Person
Author: by [ profile] erimthar
Rating: PG
Pairing(s): Willow/Tara reflected
Spoilers: some of season seven

Title/Link: 12 Weeks

Rating: R
Pairing(s): Just Willow
Spoilers: Season Six - Season Seven's Same Time, Same Place.
Warnings/Triggers: Highlight to read (mild spoiler) Suicidal thoughts, suicide attempt.
Summary: Willow's life and thoughts after the season six ender 'Grave' and her time in England.

Title/Link: Seasonal Shift
Author: ivywatcher
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Pairing/s: Friendship (W/K mentioned)
Characters: Buffy Summers, Rupert Giles, Willow Rosenberg, Xander Harris, Dawn Summers

This is the year after Sunnydale, told in bits and pieces with the changing of the seasons. Life goes on, even when we don't expect it to. For Giles, Buffy, Dawn, Xander and Willow, it turns out that some things stay the same even when everything is changing. It's time to come home.

Title/Link: Saviours
Author: [ profile] laeria
Rating: PG13
Warnings: None, religious tones
Pairing/s: Buffy/Tara
Characters: Tara, Buffy
Summary: Prompt: fawn in the woods

Title: Fractured Mirror
Author: [ profile] shakensilence
Rating: NC-17
Characters/Pairing: Dark!Willow/Vamp!Willow
Summary: Halfrek grants Xander a wish in the episode “Two to Go.”
A/N: These are just a couple deleted scenes... in theory they could fit right into the episode without changing anything.
Warnings: dub-con, bloodplay, breath play, character death
Prompts: threading a needle, broken glass, bootlaces, "every me in every you", candle wax, spanking, pain/pleasure. I fit in what I could.

Title/Link: Days of Grace
Author: [ profile] watch_yer_back
Rating: PG,
Pairing(s): Willow/Tara, gen
Spoilers:Everything, limited reference to Willow's appearances on AtS.
Warnings/Triggers: None
Summary: In this story, Willow eventually left the Scoobies (though she kept in touch and often drops by to visit) and traveled pretty widely, returning to the coven in Devon several times. Years later, Willow returns briefly to the place that was Sunnydale.

Why you should read it: I have a bit of a weakness for post series, "adult" Willow stories, and I kind of stumbled on to DoG at random. I was merely looking for a long fic. I didn't think I'd find a gem. I devoured it. Empathy, angst, and beautiful storytelling coupled with an impossible challenge - two weeks reunion with a lover long lost in order to save the world. I'm seriously disappointed that it's unfinished. I often shy away from fics with Kennedy in them, but she was palatable in this (to this die hard W/T shipper anyway). The story simply swept me away.

Title/Link: Tempus Fugit Series
Author: LipKandy
Rating: PG13/R
Pairing(s): Willow/Tara, gen
Spoilers:Everything through Season Six
Warnings/Triggers: None
Summary: Willow attempts to deal with her growing feelings for Tara and a strange machine that Buffy essentially drops into her lap. Timey wimey things happen.

Why you should read it: Since figuring out how to load fics onto my e-reader, I've been rediscovering stories that were short WIPs "back in the day" that have grown into epic novels. Tempus Fugit was one I somehow missed years ago. It's a wee bit confusing at first, most people recommend reading TF Season 4 first, then TF Season 7 and then the sadly unfinished TF: Absolute Zero (I actually read S7 first, then S4). Not many fics bring tears to my eyes, and yet this one I actually had to down a few times and regain my composure (LipKandy beautifully connects Willow's return to Tara with Buffy's chance to see her mother). Overall, an excellent story, great action and character moments, and an adorable crush for Dawn.

Title/Link: The Wish of Three Hearts
Author: LonelyTara
Rating: PG13/R
Pairing(s): Willow/Tara, gen
Warnings/Triggers: None
Summary: It's been three years since Tara's death. Willow travels to the canyon that was once Sunnydale California to celebrate her lost love's birthday. Willow makes a wish, and everything changes...

Why you should read it: This starts off like a simple reunion fic, but quickly develops into an exciting rush of action, angst, and drama. LonelyTara doesn't shy away from Warren's truly evil character. This story is easy to fall into, and each chapter made me leap for more.

Fandom: Farscape

Title: Riddles
Author: carly_gal
Rating: at times NC-17
Pairing(s): John/Aeryn
Length: Epic
Spoilers: The whole series
Warnings/Triggers: Small amount of (non-gratuitous) non-consensual stuff (not worse then you'd see on the show)
Brief summary: Aeryn's summer vacation and a loosly cannon based season four with several big surprises.
Excerpt: Silent is she, the one who haunts empty buildings, her robes cradling her as she travels untouched by land or sea; travelling as a guest with the wind, a ghost with the tide. In the morning she is pale just as sunlight bleaches a room of its colours; in the night she glows with the same pearly light as the moon. Her eyes are wide in the moment before death. She has no mouth; instead she drinks that which she sees.

Note: This epic story somehow missed the fandom's attention and that's a tragedy. It's a glorious story that weaves in and out of canon in unexpected ways. So very much worth your time.

Title: Scientist, Astronaut, and Nymphomaniac: The nine lives of John Crichton
Author: feldman
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): John/Aeryn
Length: Long
Spoilers: Season Two, specifically Out Of Their Minds
Warnings/Triggers: None that I saw
Brief summary: Possession is nine-tenths of the law. One of the most well known adult fics; this is the highest quality kink you can get in this fandom.

I also recommend anything written by [ profile] sugargroupie. Her writing is almost poetic, and her smut is smoldering. Her Farscape works can be found HERE.

Title: Undertones
Author: Thea
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): John/Aeryn
Spoilers: Season Four up to Twice Shy
Warnings/Triggers: I don't remember any.
Summary: He'd planned and plotted and consulted with Pilot, the universe's strangest Yenta, and had him make secret arrangements at one of the inns.

Title: Asystole
Author: Maayan
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): John/Aeryn
Spoilers: Season One
Warnings/Triggers: Only if the effects of the Aurora Chair bug you, but if that does, why are you watching this show?
Summary: There's this tough soldier, this humbling woman, the strongest creature he's ever met, and she lets him wrap his fingers around her throat.

Title: All for Love
Author: [ profile] kazbaby
Rating: PG
Pairing(s): John/Aeryn
Spoilers: AU after Prayer
Warnings/Triggers: Death... but it's Farscape, you should be used to it.
Summary: There once was a boy named John. And John had this girl. He loved his girl. A lot. So much that once he offered up the universe for her, her name inscribed in fire along each of its borders. Species, even the ones that he'd never heard of, were extinguished in the blink of an eye. Because of love.

Title: Walls of Jericho
Author: birthsister
Rating: PG-13
Pairing(s): John/Aeryn
Spoilers: Post Fractures
Warnings/Triggers: None that I recall.
Summary: He pictured her in his mind and for a moment it was like imagining his own funeral. He remembered those first days without her aboard Moya had been bad enough. He remembered finding himself outside her quarters more often than not. An easy walk then knowing she was still alive. He'd had no souvenir but memory.

Title: The Talyn Suite
Author: Robyn Bender
Rating: NC-17
Pairing(s): John/Aeryn
Length: Epic
Spoilers: All of Season Three
Warnings/Triggers: None that I recall, but each chapter has a detailed author's note about content.
Brief summary: Aeryn and TalynJohn had the time to develop a real partnership. This is about that time. Follows cannon, but is one of the most well developed stories in this fandom. I highly recommend this fic. Subsequent chapters can be found HERE.

Title: Down Along the Barrel of a Gun
Author: KodiakkMax
Rating: PG
Pairing(s): John/Aeryn
Length: Short
Spoilers: Season One
Warnings/Triggers: None
Brief summary: It was a long moment of breathing and bodies, holding hands and the view down along the barrel of a gun.
