Fic rec: Klemmata by greygerbil | Historical Fantasy

Klemmata by greygerbil

*Original M/M Slash

*Rated Explicit

*Available on ao3

Summary: King Melanthios is well aware that Prince Hesperos has other intentions than pure love when he starts courting him, but it’s difficult to resist him nonetheless.

Tags: Sensible but Lonely King/Charming Prince Marrying Him for Political Reasons; Pseudo-Ancient Greece; Fantasy; Switching; Mild Honour Bondage

Thoughts: I really like this story about a prince who works very hard to get a king to like and marry him. Both the prince and the king are wonderful characters and I love the Ancient Greece-infused and magical world that the author has created. There’s lots of (reciprocated) pining and I love how well the two characters fit together. A very enjoyable read!

Fic Rec: spin me right ’round

On AO3

  • oneshot
  • 2038 words

Riley and Alexis haven’t actually talked to each other in a long time. When their meddling friends set them up on a Ferris wheel ride all alone, though, they’re forced to.

A cute fluffy story about a closeted dude and his long term crush. And his fear of heights.

Fic Rec: Daz The Destroyer Conquers Prom | Demon Summoning, Prom, Cinderella Elements

Daz The Destroyer Conquers Prom by Fair_Feather_Friend

  • Original M/M Slash
  • Available on AO3
  • Complete, 8k, Teens
  • Contains: Demon Summoning, Prom, Cinderella Elements, HUMOUR, Happy Ending

Summary:

When Melchior Gordon is faced with the prospect of either attending prom alone, or not going at all, he summons a demon to escort him.

Daz the Destroyer is not the date Melchior expected.

My thoughts: This fic is sooo funny!! Both Daz the Destroyer and Melchior have such great lines, and Daz the Destroyer is soo deadpan about crushing everything that Melchior mentions. Melchior ends up having a pretty great prom with his demon date. A really humorous, light-hearted (with pinches of angst!) fic!!

Fic Rec: With Love in Mind | Daddy Kink, Sugar Daddy, Asexual Dom

With Love in Mind by TuppingLiberty

  • Original M/M Slash
  • Available on AO3
  • Complete, 81k, Explicit
  • Contains: Sugar Daddy, Dom/Sub, Daddy Kink, Asexual Dom, Lots of kink negotiation and aftercare

Summary:

Tongue stuck between his lips, his mind goes quiet for a few precious moments as he concentrates on the polish. He sighs with happiness when he’s done, admiring his toes, wishing he could wear the color on his nails.
Graeme Webster, 20, is clawing at survival the best way he can. He works two jobs, but can’t make rent. He has an anxiety disorder, but can’t afford his meds. He’s trying his best, but he needs help.

“You might be leaning on urban geekster a bit too hard.”
“Okay, I’m probably going to regret asking, but ‘geekster?’”
“Geek-hipster. Geekster.”

Alan Garry, 30, is an app programming millionaire with a middle class background. He may be a workaholic, but he’s carved out time for the Seattle kink scene since being introduced to it in college. He sits somewhere on the asexual spectrum, and the fact that he can’t figure out precisely where bothers him more than he’d care to admit.

“It’s going to be okay, Graeme. Where do you hurt the most?”
An unfortunate chance encounter brings them together, but they realize quite quickly that neither of them are willing to part again.

My thoughts: I love this fic so much. Some physical hurt turns to platonic comfort that builds into a lovely relationship between the two. The domination is so very caring, and there’s so much good conversation and negotiations between the two, and both of them show so much vulnerability and grow together. The asexual dom part of it is also really fantastic, and there’s also scenes set in the kink community.

I’m just wondering if I can recommend a video here… It’s a 2-part music video, but it’s more like a short film. I’m more familiar with the livejournal page, I don’t use tumblr at all, so I have been following this site in a while… Thanks!

Definitely! We welcome all original LGBTQ+ media 😀

I would like to plug our subreddit, since most of our mods have moved away from Tumblr, BUT you are welcome to rec music videos here, too. (Posts to the subreddit automatically cross post here!)

Comic Rec: A Man of Virtue | Power Dynamics, Humor, Obsession, Pining, Slapstick elements

Title: A Man of Virtue

  • Original MM Slash (Korean BL)
  • WIP (But the main emotional arc has been resolved)
  • Mature
  • Warnings: Dubcon elements, situations that would not be acceptable IRL
  • Pay-per-chapter on Lezhin

Summary: What’s it like spending your whole life coming in second place? Ask Nam Jinwoo, he’s been living in the shadow of his rival, Ma Sangtae, his whole life. From high school to college, and now in the office. But passion is strange, it can start as envy or hate and turn into something… erotic. Now Jinwoo’s head is filled with the dirtiest and most erotic thoughts, none of which are in his control. More than anything, he wants them to stop. But the only way to stop them might just be the last thing he wants to do…

Tags: Pining, enemies to lovers, workplace setting, obsession, comedy, some fantastical elements, mature, miscommunication, not-realistic BDSM

Thoughts: “What’s it like spending your whole life coming in second place?” A summary that opens with a line like this will always catch my attention. A Man of Virtue has some of my favorite tropes: MC who feels inferior to the love interest. Obsessive love interest. A lot of back-and-forth in terms of power dynamics. They’re both fully-formed characters. And they have a Past.

They’re also terrible at communication, so if that’s a hard no…fair warning.

Fic Rec: Seven Tears into the Sea | Magical Realism

Seven Tears Into the Sea by lynadyndyn

  • Original M/M Slash

  • Rated Explicit

  • Available on ao3

Summary:

“Was that really called for? I was just making conversation, you don’t have to…” And then he thought about the hard authority in Malcolm’s voice when he talked about MacCordrum’s choice of collectibles. He looked at Malcolm, a rare, pretty thing.

Later, Dylan would remember this moment as the first time he felt the wrongness of the situation. His first glimpse into true mystery and ugliness and the dark.

Tags: Magical realism, fantasy, warnings for mentions of rape/non-con

Thoughts: A really good story weaving Scottish mythological elements, magical realism and the attraction between a consultant to a very wealthy man and the wealthy man’s very mysterious, beautiful and distant secretary. This is a bit older, but I’ve reread this story so many times and loved it each rereading. I really enjoy the author’s writing style and how they set the story up as serious and thoughtful.

Fic Rec: Starsfall | High Fantasy, Assassins

Starsfall by thedevilchicken

*Original M/M Slash

*Rated Explicit

*Available on ao3

Summary:

General Dorrand is fifty-two years old and the best swordsman in Talis. He’s severe, austere, devout, and the king’s most trusted advisor.

Reylen of Lorand, son of the Duke of Lorand, is a spendthrift thirty-something with a taste for wine and casual sex. But he’s also not exactly what he seems to be.

When Dorrand finds Reylen standing over a dead man with a dagger in his hand, the obvious explanation both is and isn’t the right one.

Tags: High Fantasy, Assassins & Hitmen, Age Difference, Swordfighting, Getting Together, Secret Identity, Blood and Violence, Power Dynamics

Thoughts: A really enjoyable take on unavoidable attraction, with a heaping dash of secret identity and assassins. This fic follows two characters who have been orbiting each other for a long time with different goals and allegiances, both complete opposites in appearances. It’s on the shorter side, so I don’t want to spoil too much, but it’s enjoyable and the power dynamics are fun.

The Absence of You by shukyou

Illustrated by TOFU

  • Original M/M and poly (M and F)
  • Complete
  • Explicit
  • Free

Summary: In an alternate Victorian England, Lucian wakes up with two years of his memories removed as punishment for a crime that he now has no knowledge of committing. Alone and uncertain, he reaches out to the theurgist who removed his memories.

Tags: alternate universe, magic, minor allusion to sexual assault, discussions of violence/death.

Thoughts: A really interesting look at an alternative Victorian England where magic is freely practiced and certain crimes can be expunged by removing the memories which lead to the crime. I loved the chemistry between the two main characters as well as the chemistry that the narrator has with the other people that he comes to work and live with. The author’s writing is so lush and immersive–it is one of those rare stories where I felt transported to this world. I don’t want to spoil too much, but I loved the world and thought the story was really unique and interesting.
