Merlin, Marvel, Flash, SGA, Star Wars, Hunger Games, Star Trek, and Harry Potter recs

Sorry for the long delay in posting recs. Life got a little busy and I lost track of the time.

Teen Wolf
Lissadiane - Night Owls Early Birds
I had so much fun reading this story. I loved Stile's pov and his owl.

(recs-TeenWolf,Pairing:Derek/Stiles,f4,Length:20k-50k,Trope:Magic)




Marvel Universe (Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, X-Men)
Nonymos - Into That Good Night
INSTANT REC!!! I hadn't read a story this haunting in a long time. I loved the premise, I got tears in my eyes, the characters worked for me.

(recs-Marvel,recs-Avengers,recs-CaptainAmerica,recs-instant!rec,Length:50k-100k,Trope:Crossover)



Speranza - 20th Century Limited
I loved the concept, character voices, and seeing how Bucky and Steve find each other again.

(recs-Marvel,recs-CaptainAmerica,f4,Length:50k-100k,Pairing:BuckyBarnes/SteveRogers)



Teyke - The Undone Universe
INSTANT REC!!! This series is epic and I loved the concept, the characters, world building and use of time travel/super powers. It's not necessarily an easy read, there are multiple level of things happening and time travel shenanigans. But I had a great time reading and plan to read this again now the series is complete.

(recs-Marvel,recs-Avengers,Trope:Powers,Trope:Time-Travel,Trope:Clones,Length:600k-900k,recs-instant!rec,PairingType:General)



Thor
tenaya - Naked in the Eye of the Storm
INSTANT REC!!! I could not stop reading once I started. I loved the concept, character voices, the sex was hot and this hit so many of my kinks.

(recs-Marvel,recs-Thor,recs-instant!rec,f4,Length:50k-100k,Pairing:Thor/Loki,Pairing:Loki/Odin,Warning:Rape)



ArticulatioHumeri - The House of Foster
I liked a lot of the concepts in this story, though sometimes the pov shifts lost me, and I think it counts as a curtain fic. If you want a story where there is a lot of cooking, setting up house, and learning to live together with found family then this is the story for you. It's a lot of slice of life type stuff with infinity stones thrown in.

(recs-Marvel,recs-Thor,f3,Length:200k-300k,Pairing:Jane/Thor,Pairing:Darcy/Loki)



Daredevil

lady_ragnell - Keep a Tender Distance
This was a fun, sweet story. I enjoyed the characters and seeing how Matt fell in love with Foggy.

(recs-Marvel,recs-Daredevil,f4,Length:20k-50k,Pairing:FoggyNelson/MattMurdock,Trope:ArrangedMarriage)




Stargate Atlantis/SG-1

Quasar - Criss-Cross
I loved the concept, the characters, and seeing the other universe after stuff from part 1 is settled.

(recs-StargateAtlantis,recs-StargateSG-1,Trope:Crossover,Length:100k-200k,Pairing:Sheppard/McKay)




Merlin
Etharei - dreams for wings and wanderers
INSTANT REC!!! I loved the character voices, the concept, and seeing how Merlin worked with the dragons.

(recs-Merlin,recs-instant!rec,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur,recs-Temeraire,Trope:Crossover)



Polomonkey - How To Love A Living Thing
I liked this story and felt for Merlin. I also loved that Arthur was there for Merlin.

(recs-Merlin,f3,Length:10k-20k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur)



Mamalazzer - A Modern Manservant
This story was ridiculous and funny! I loved the banter between Merlin and Arthur, the concept, and characters. I think the author described it as "A modern magical comedy very loosely based on Ugly Betty."

(recs-Merlin,f4,Length:100k-200k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur,Trope:Magic,Genre:Humor)


unpossible - Ashes, Embers, Flames
I liked how Merlin and Arthur fell in love.

(recs-Merlin,f3,Length:20k-50k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur,Trope:Magic)



Destina - Para Bellum
This is the sequel to "Stars Above, Stones Below," which I have already recommended. This story continues where the last left off and I loved the politics, the race against time to save Merlin, and all the scenes where Arthur and Merlin care about each other.

(recs-Merlin,f4,Length:50k-100k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur)



McShame - Rheged
I loved Merlin's pov, the sex scenes were scorching hot, and this wasn't an easy story to read because of the cheating.

(recs-Merlin,f4,Length:100k-200k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur)



kianspo - Let Us Dare
This was a fun romance/adventure story. I loved seeing Arthur's pov and how different Camelot turned out when Ygraine lives and Uther is the one that dies.

(recs-Merlin,f4,Length:20k-50k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur)


crimsonswirls, ZairaA - A Beacon In The Dark
INSTANT REC!!! This story made me cry. I loved the flashbacks and seeing how Merlin and Arthur grew up together, it made it so much harder to see where Merlin ended up because of his magic.

(recs-Merlin,recs-instant!rec,f4,Length:50k-100k,Warning:Rape,Trope:Prostitution)


prettysailorsoldier - Immortal and Imperishable
INSTANT REC!!! Seriously, I loved the concept of Merlin infiltrating Camelot and totally failing his mission because he meets Arthur. I loved how the relationship between Merlin and Arthur develops and the reveal was amazing.

(recs-Merlin,recs-instant!rec,Length:100k-200k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur)


bad_peppermint - Wings to Fly
I loved the concept, the character voices, and seeing Arthur as a father.

(recs-Merlin,f4,Length:50k-100k,PairingType:General,Trope:Kidfic)


mushroomtale, Polomonkey - In Spite of Everything, the Stars
I loved the concept and I felt so bad for Arthur in this story.

(recs-Merlin,f4,Length:50k-100k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur)



Footloose - We Are All Diamonds
I loved the character voices, the plot, concept, and I'm glad Arthur found Merlin. I thought the author did a great job of describing the challenges Arthur faced as a person with hearing loss.

(recs-Merlin,f4,Length:100k-200k,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur,Trope:Magic)




Harry Potter
Femme femmequixotic , noeon noe - The Silent World Within You
I enjoyed the concept, character voices, and seeing how Harry and Draco worked together.

(recs-HarryPotter,Length:50k-100k,Harry/Draco,f4,Trope:MPREG)



astolat - House Proud
I loved the concept, the character voices, and the imagery. I also liked the creepy parts of the story.

(recs-HarryPotter,author-astolat,f4,Length:20k-50k,Harry/Draco)



hazel_wand - Where your heart is set
Summary: Draco comes home from school to find that his mother has decided to rebuild their family to include Andromeda, Teddy … and Harry Potter.
Review: I loved Draco's pov and seeing how the family came together with Draco.

(recs-HarryPotter,f4,Length:10k-20k,Harry/Draco)



firethesound - All Our Secrets Laid Bare
INSTANT REC!!! I loved the plot, characters, and the sex was hot. I also liked the idea of Draco and Harry working together as partners and the use of magic.

(recs-HarryPotter,f4,Length:100k-200k,Harry/Draco,recs-instant!rec)




Star Wars: The Force Awakens
StarMaple - The Future Prince
This was a lighthearted fun story.

(recs-StarWarsForceAwakens,f4,Pairing:Finn/Poe,Length:20k-50k)




Vorkosigan

Philomytha - Aral Vorkosigan's Dog
INSTANT REC!!! This story is absolutely amazing! I couldn't stop reading once I started. I loved the character voices, the plot, it's well written, and I liked seeing the Escobar invasion through Illyan's pov. There are depths to this story.

(recs-Vorkosigan,recs-instant!rec,f4,Length:50k-100k,Warning:Rape,PairingType:General)




Merlin/Harry Potter
Morena_Evensong - Through the Eyes of Minerva's Owl
This was a fun crossover story. I liked Merlin's character voice, the concept, and seeing how the Knights of the Round table came together again. I also highly enjoyed Draco's pov.

(recs-Merlin,recs-HarryPotter,f4,Length:100k-200k,Trope:Crossover,Trope:Reincarnation)




Star Trek: Original Series

WerewolvesAreReal - Blue Fields
I liked seeing Kirk and Spock working together as kids to survive Tarsus IV. The character voices and plot worked for me.

(recs-StarTrekOriginal,f3,Pairing:Kirk/Spock,Length:20k-50k)




The Flash
pissedoffeskimo - Sticks and Stones
INSTANT REC!!! This story hit all my buttons. I loved the concept, the character voices, and I could not stop reading once I started.

(recs-DCU,recs-TheFlash,f4,recs-instant!rec,Pairing:BarryAllen/CiscoRamon,Pairing:BarryAllen/EobardThawne,Warning:Rape-Recovery,Warning:Torture,Warning:Child-Abuse)




The Hunger Games

MockingJayFlyingFree - The miner's wife
INSTANT REC!!! I loved the premise, the angst, character voices, and seeing how Peeta and Katniss fall in love in this universe. So much of the story is tragic so do read the warnings. I could not stop reading once I started.

(recs-HungerGames,f4,Pairing:KatnissEverdeen/PeetaMellark,Warning:Non-Con,Trope:Prostitution,recs-instant!rec,Length:100k-200k)

Thank you!

Downloaded a bunch of the Avengers recs. I agree with your We Are All Diamonds and In Spite of Everything, the Stars recs. I just finished the latter yesterday and thought the author did a particularly good job with their backstories. I think I may have read a few more of the Merlin ones but I'm rather awful with titles and authors so I'm not sure.

Thanks for these!

In Spite also had THE most amazing set of artwork to go with it. I actually came to it from the art first and downloaded it last fall but it only came up in my queue a few days ago. It's just stunning and captures all of the scenes so well.

And yes, while most of what I see is fairly brief stuff it seems that some fests are still going on with longer works which is great. I'm betting that we're going to see a slew of darker-tinged fic this year inspired by BJ's Damien role. It was good to see him in a new project at last though it's unfortunate it was such a poor production.

The final episode of S1 was the best but it was too little too late -- either they needed to unspool the plot far sooner in the season, or they needed to take a different approach with more character-oriented development. My biggest concern is that having this series in his resume isn't going to help him get something else soon.

Thank you so much! I had to go to skip=120 to find this (I knew someone had made a massive recs list recently, but couldn't remember who), but it's totally worth it.
