FAKE fic recs
Yeah I spent a couple of hours looking for FAKE fics. I actually went through a lot more than the three I ended up listing here, but I didn't bother to keep track of the ones that left me going "meh". Yeah, I know these fics are nothing better than just PWP, but even PWP should have *some* standards, right? Yes? No? Well, whatever.
Caution: These links go to fanfics which contain explicit guy-on-guy slash. If you rare offended by homosexuality or are not old enough to read NC-17 rated fics, stop reading this post now.
Move, by Kracken
I like this author because she seems to capture pretty well the dynamics and characters of Dee and Ryo. A lot of fics seem to needlessly stuff these guys into the stereotypical butch/sissy types common to yaoi-fics, sometimes to really OOC results. This one stays pretty true to the characters, even if the plot meandered a little. Or, as the author herself says at the end: "Kracken’s own Critique: Okay, the plot wandered, I lost track of the conflict, and then I tried to cover it up with steamy sex." But hey, that's still better than most.
Venom, by Kracken
I liked this one for similar reasons to the above. This time both boys get injured on the job. Not at the same time tho. NOT (mucho of) a hurt/comfort/angst fic though, so don't worry about that.
Infidelities, by happyberry
And now for something completely different. This one's OOC, but it's an OOC PWP that I can tolerate because the OOC is for the explicit purpose of the, er, physical relationship (aka sex), as opposed to OOC for the purposes of excessive badly-written angst. It's also got an Original Female Character in there which some Mary Sue-ish qualities. But she doesn't have anything to do with the steamy scenes on the end of Chapter 2 and in Chapter 3, which is the only important parts of the fic anyhow, IMO. :p
ADDENDUM: Day of Silence, by Crimson1
The fic is nice and fluffy. But I'm reccing this one mostly for the interesting idea behind it. Is there really a "Day of Silence" type thing IRL? It sounds interesting.
