I have ebook versions for all the stories listed here (except for Family Matters) if you'd like a mobi/epub version of a story listed here and the author doesn't already have one email me at amalthia at gmail.com and I'll share my copy with you.

I'm using the cut tag because I have a month's worth of recs and I didn't want to kill anyone's bandwidth. :) I'm also about a month behind on updating the Ebook Library. But I think I needed the break. School for the semester is almost over but I'm going to take 2 classes in a 5 week period for Summer I so I'm not sure how that'll go in terms of time required? I suspect updates may be few and far between until summer is over.

Recs behind the cut! )

This is about a months worth of recs...I think this may be my only rec post for the month of February and second post of the month. I think school is keeping me far too busy. That and re-watching all of Farscape...I'd forgotten how awesome this series was and I'm having a tough time finding good fan fiction in the Farscape fandom.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Sex Ed Teacher by skydark - The Adventures of Roy Mustang (Pairing:Ed/Roy) INSTANT REC!!! I had a blast reading this story. I don't think I've laughed this much from the antics of the characters in forever.

In Loco Parentis by Dolores_Crane (Pairing:Hermione/Harry Harry/Snape) INSTANT REC!!! This wasn't like any Harry Potter fic I've read in ages. It's probably because it's told from Hermione's pov but it also it touches on some much deeper issues and I could not stop reading once I started. I'll also add that one part made me cry.

Rough Trade by whiskyrunner (Pairing:Arthur/Eames) It starts off with hot sex and just gets better. :)

Quartering The Odds by eighth_horizon (Sam/Dean) This is an AU of the Turn of the Wheel series and though it was short she packed a whole bunch of good stuff in this story. But I think I was pretty much sold at Hooker!Wingfic! and then Sam and Dean being themselves. :)
