House

Title: Deriving the Prime
Author: rageprufrock
Pairing: House/Cuddy/Wilson
Rating: NC-17
Warning: spoilers through Who's Your Daddy?

The first time they fuck, it's hot, immolating, all slick skin and Cuddy's breasts, finally free to do as they wish cupped in the palms of House's hands, nipples hard against his skin. She's not a screamer--House only has time for a moment of vague disappointment at that--but she makes an amazing, throaty gasp in the back of her mouth before she closes it over House's in an open-mouthed kiss that makes House groan into her mouth.

Title: Shape of the Universe
Author: descrimeCharacter: Wilson
Rating: PG

The first place he goes is Wilson’s office. He doesn’t bother to knock, just flings the door open and says, “Cuddy knows something’s up.” It’s all very dramatic, but Wilson’s never been a big appreciator of the arts. 

Title: Treading Water
Author: nekosmuse
Pairing: Cuddy/Stacy
Rating: R

Three months to the day and she knows she shouldn't be surprised.
And she's not; at least, she's not surprised that it fell apart, even if it did take three months longer than she thought it would. Stacy's affair with House told her it was coming, after all. It was, however, a surprise when Stacy called her. Her, and not House, and Lisa could have sworn he'd be the first person Stacy told.


Veronica Mars

Title: I Haven't Seen Barbados
Author: monimala
Character: Mac
Rating: PG
Warning: FINALE SPOILERS

Mac doesn't take a dozen scalding hot showers. She doesn't scrub herself raw.

Title: (Inner) Conflict Resolution
Author: strongly_worded
Characters: Dick, Mac
Rating: PG-13
Warning: FINALE SPOILERS

Dick thinks he should have gotten a free pass out of summer school.

Title: Requiem for Uncomplicted
Author: amelia_kay
Character: Dick
Rating: PG-13ish
Warning: FINALE SPOILERS

The way Dick Casablancas sees it, somebody has to have gotten something wrong, and that somebody sure as hell isn't him.

Miscellaneous

Title: Another Blast of the Trumpet
Fandom: Profit (!)
Author: serrico
Pairing: Profit/Bobbi
Rating: R
Warning: pseudo-incest, cross-gen, OMG THE WRONGNESS

Jimmy's first impressions of people were almost always sounds. He paid special attention to those who made themselves heard over the TV. 
When Bobbi arrived, she made herself heard: the crunch and skitter of gravel under slaloming tires, the dull clink of a bottle hitting the wooden porch rail, the uneven clop of high-heels across the linoleum, the cigarettes-and-alcohol rust in her voice. But it was the first time he saw her--the first time he'd seen any of the women, or girls, his dad brought home--that he was truly able to form an opinion of her.


Title: Something
Fandom: Grey's Anatomy
Author: _shades_
Pairing: Alex/George
Rating: R

So Izzie and Alex were fighting, but that wasn’t new at all. It went through cycles, always had, and eventually there would be some sort of desperate reunion that made George suspicious of the beds in the on-call rooms. They would be happy for a few weeks until… something. There was always something; something that went wrong, something that went right and then blundered, something like someone who tried and then failed. For George, something tended to be cute nurses with VD and girls who said yes but then cried.

Title: The Widow Garrett's Wedding Night
Fandom: Deadwood
Author: jae_w
Pairing: Joanie/Jane
Rating: R

There's a soft sound in Jane's ears when she wakes, a low wet pull and drag, repeating over and over again like a river just stirred by the wind. It's been going on a while, Jane can tell by the way she wakes up easy and slow, like she's floating up to the top of that river. She usually wakes up hard and fast, eyes wide open and fingers already reaching for whatever's closest to hand. She usually wakes up ready for anything.

House

Title: Dissonance
Author: bironic
Pairing: Wilson/Julie, Julie/OMC
Rating: PG-13
Warning: spoilers through Sex Kills

It's the silence that gets them in the end.
The griping was awful, but this almost makes him yearn for it again. Now they speak to each other in terse notes slapped on the fridge—"Pick up dry cleaning," "Home late tonight"—and know each other by small disruptions around the house, objects shifted in daily life: the keys tossed in a different position in the bowl by the door, the mail left open on the table, the toothpaste rolled a little further.


Title: La Consommation D’Astrologie
Author: aheartfulofyou
Pairing: Cuddy/Foreman-ish
Rating: PG

He may wear the same shoes as House, but the statistics have to say that’s not an indication of similarities in personality or predestination. His possible own inherent coldness does not stem from the same place his boss’ does. House pushes people away because of his own disturbed internal views of human nature. Foreman? Not so much. He’s well aware that he keeps his distance, but it’s called professionalism. It’s called actually following codes of conduct. Cameron may have looked like an injured puppy when he calmly told her the plain and simple facts: he wasn’t harsh because of lack of emotional well-being (House, obvious, though he doesn’t like to name names). It was the truth. He’s fond of her. He’s not planning on becoming lifelong friends with her.

Title: My Freudian Nightmare (Scrubs crossover)
Author: mandysbitch
Pairing: Jordan/Stacy, implied House/Cox
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: I've decided to stop warning for explicit sex (at least where there's a rating), but this might be a little strong for some tastes.

His name was Billy and he was twelve years old. I was ten. Twelve was mature, practically adult. He had blue eyes, dark hair and freckles, or maybe he didn’t. The memory is a blur.
Actually, his name probably wasn’t Billy. Maybe it was Tom? I can’t remember the name of my personal trainer or the lawyer who administered my father’s estate so Billy will have to do. Weren’t they all called Billy?



Miscellaneous

Title: Cloudbusting
Fandom: Big Love
Author: jengrrrl
Pairing: Sarah/Heather
Rating: teen

It’s not done. Not by anyone she knows. What she means is, they all know it exists, pretty much, but it seems like something people do on another planet. Another universe.
Turns out, the universe is small.


Title: My New Pants
Fandom: Scrubs
Author: runpunkrun
Character/Pairing: JD, vague JD/Cox
Rating: PG

Sometimes I surprise myself. Like I get a tricky question right during rounds, or I do a perfect orotracheal intubation on the very first try, or I make it past the janitor without insulting him or getting tripped or being shoved in my locker or used as a mop.
Sometimes I even surprise Dr. Cox.


Title: Tangling Shadows
Fandom: Deadwood
Author: septicemic
Character/Pairing: Charlie-centric, peripheral Joanie/Jane
Rating: R

Before Bill died, seeing Jane cry brought a weight of unhappy confusion to Charlie Utter's stomach. After, it became a regular thing.
She wasn't a girl to cry prettily, either. Her face got red, eyes puffed and squinty and snot ran down her lip. Her moods were patternless and impossible to predict: much of the time she threw empties at Charlie if he got near her when she was sobbing, but sometimes she'd aim her pistol at him, or in his general direction give or take a few feet, until he sat down with her. Sometimes she just wanted him to talk--not about the old days; about the postal system, new folks in town, the hardware boys' tribulations, the Widow Garrett and Sophia, whore gossip. He did what she wanted, even after he'd taken her bullets away. Sometimes she wanted to lie in his arms until she cried herself to sleep. He did that too. It was always the same when she woke up: "Fuckin' let go of me, Charlie Utter, or I'll fuckin' gut you, you fat cocksucker."

Angel

Title: No Oceans Left
Author: untrue_accounts
Pairing: Wes/Justine, Justine/OMC, implied Holtz/Justine and Wes/Lilah
Rating: R
Warnings: blood

He never once touches her, not the entire summer. 
(He chains her, unchains her, gags her, ungags her, helps her fasten and unfasten her diving suit.) 
He never once touches her. Not like--


Title: Mortal Taste (Theodicy, the Lilah Morgan Remix)
Author:  karabair
Pairing: Lilah/Angel
Rating: R
Warnings: character death

He sat alone at the bar, three shot glasses turned down in front of him. She couldn't sneak up on him; she had a reflection. The mirror across from Angel revealed an obvious void, but no one questioned. It wasn't that kind of place.

Title: Sweet, Sour, and Sweet Again (The Monster at the End of this Book Remix)
Author: wisdomeagle
Characters: Fred, Cordelia
Rating: PG

At the end of this story, Fred will be dead. (Just so you know. If you read further, you will kill her.)

House

Title: How Much Salt
Author: voleuse
Pairing: Wilson/Cameron
Rating: R

Wilson doesn't recognize her at first, because he didn't expect to recognize anyone in the hotel's bar. Certainly not Allison Cameron, anyway, but when he looks up from his table, scans the room out of habit, she catches his attention.

Title: O Brave New World (The All the World's a Stage Remix)
Author: ekaterinn_words
Pairing: House/Wilson
Rating: R

SCENE ONE
Stairs connect the larger lower area of the stage to the balcony; there is a green door with 221B etched on it at the bottom of the stairs. Beyond the door lies a couch and an armchair. At stage right, a bed is pushed next to a piano. On the balcony there is a small card table.


Title: The Non-Art of Verbalization Without Saying Anything
Author: lyssie
Pairing: House/Cameron
Rating: unrated; I'd give it an R

It starts the second week after she comes back.
Well, not the second week exactly, because she thinks she remembers being half-drunk during the first week and kissing him sloppily in his office (and he said Cuddy downed the whole glass without breathing, and she thinks that's why she couldn't breathe when his tongue went down her throat).


Title: the slow pace of the body that skin is
Author: alibi_factory
Pairing: House/Wilson
Rating: R
Warnings: Clueless spoilers

A boy kneels in the desert and brushes sand away from a skull picked clean by the sun. The city moves in the distance behind him, pushing nervously against its ill-defined boundaries. He picks up the skull (a camel, most likely, though without skin and animating muscle the bones look almost mechanical), holds it under his arm as he runs stumbling back to the road, losing purchase with each step. There is no solid ground beneath the sand.

Miscellaneous

Title: An Expropriation
Fandom: Wicked bookverse
Author: miduhyo
Pairing: Elphaba/Galinda, Crope/Tibbet
Rating: PG

“Each time you visit, the evenings seem to come a little later.”
It was preposterous of me to find meaning and sentimentality in the ramblings of a madman, but Tibbett had always had a way of saying things that meant one-hundred things at once.


Title: ratnakara, on becoming valmiki
Fandom: Oryx and Crake
Author: thorne_scratch
Pairing: Implied Snowman/Crake
Rating: R-ish

It's late afternoon, and the sunlight slants down golden through the leaves, spills itself over his hands and gives him nothing to hold onto. Snowman sits with his hands cupped and balanced on his legs, his legs crossed over each other-- awkward position, nothing so easy as the swamis made it look in the pictures dug out of the Encyclopedia Britannica CD-ROM. But that was the point, maybe, to control discomfort and make it pay out dividends.

Title: Strange Bedfellows (Rhapsody in Blue)
Fandom: LA Confidential
Author: musesfool
Pairing: Exley/White
Rating: NC-17
Warning: explicit sex

The memory keeps him awake some nights, heart racing, palms sweaty, more fearful than he ever was at the time. Eyes closed, he remembers.
The gun is in his hand, an extension of himself, the metal warm from his body, the trigger smooth and easy to pull. He can feel adrenaline pumping in his veins, but his vision is clear, unclouded by rage. The air reeks of fear, as if it's soaked into the floor and walls of the Victory Motel the way so much blood has over the years, so much that it lingers to choke them as he and Exley fight for their lives. They say you never hear the shot that hits you, but it's a lie--he hears all the gunfire, and he knows that when a bullet hits you, it doesn't matter which one it is, or where it came from. In the dim blue light of the motel room, he can see blood soaking his shirt like graffiti in some language he's never learned.

House

Title: Chapter and Verse
Author: romanticalgirl
Pairing: Wilson/Cuddy
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: explicit sex

"You’re making a mistake."
"It’s her choice."
"Hers. Not his." Wilson sat across her desk, watching the stiff line of her back as she slid a book back onto the shelf. "He’ll hate you both."


Title: Finger on the Trigger
Author: atlashrugged
Pairing: House/Chase
Rating: R

You remember Chase, chewing on a pencil, eyes behind a curtain of hair, and nowhere else to go but down. Overcast skies (gray-blue) and the windows echoing rain throughout the conference room, you sat with your cane and thought about Chase’s hands soft and capable, and possibly taking advantage of his not so deeply buried daddy issues. You needed a reason, Chase and you don’t have the best working relationship, and you want this thing to start unfolding.


Title: The Hardest Part of Dying
Author: blademistress
Pairings: Stacy/Mark, implied House/Stacy.
Rating: PG-13

Mark doesn’t resent Stacy for being able to walk. He likes the idea of it though. It’s simple and understandable considering his condition. It’s only logical that a man suddenly put into a wheelchair just hours after meeting one Gregory House – former boyfriend of his wife (possible still love of her life) – would resent said wife for basic functions, like being able to walk.
That’s not it though.


Veronica Mars

Title: Dark Places Where Monsters Dwell
Author: apocalypsos
Characters: Dick, Mac
Rating: R
Warnings: character death. LOTS of character death.

The day the four of them try to break into the hospital, Dick's finished off enough of a bottle of Jagermeister to be pretty much useless. Not that he's not useless the rest of the time -- he might not be the smartest person on the planet, but at least he's fucking self-aware enough for that -- but he can barely stand up straight and all he's doing is pissing off Veronica, at this point. 


Title: Necrosis
Author: sinaddict
Grouping: Logan/Duncan/Veronica
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: threesome, explicit sex

Duncan has an excuse.
It's a pretty damn good one as far as excuses go. "Your dad murdered my sister." Kind of hard for Logan to come up with a response to that one. He could probably stretch his excuse to include, "Your dad took advantage of my sister." Lilly was a beautiful, naive, innocent... okay, so he couldn't even mentally get through that without laughing.


Title: we remember our bedrooms
Author: amerella
Pairings: Lilly/Just About Everyone
Rating: R

They’re in Veronica’s bedroom the first time Veronica asks Lilly what it feels like, to do it, and Lilly says, YOU MEAN TO HAVE SEX? even though it's obvious that that’s what Veronica means. Veronica screeches at this response, like the fourteen-year-old girl that she is. Lilly’s fifteen, so she knows things. She says, ohmygod, Veronica, okay, SEX feels like, I don’t even know, like something you want to do over and over again, all the time. Veronica says oh
.


Miscellaneous

Title: Fairytale Ending
Fandom: Shoujo Kakumei Utena
Author: thorne_scratch
Pairings: Anthy/Utena, Anthy/Akio
Rating: Unrated (I'd say PG-13)
Warning: incest

Anthy is thinking about a story that has no name.
It's a story that the shadows did not tell her, about people who don't grow up. She gets most of her stories from the shadows but some of them come out of the books in the room and some of them come from her brother, and some of them come from Dios, and some of them just come right up out of her head like roses.


Title: foreign bodies
Fandom: Law and Order: SVU/RPF crossover
Author: giantessmess
Pairing: Olivia Benson/Mariska Hargitay (I am not even kidding)
Rating: PG-13
Warning: could make your head explode

"Look, I don’t do this."
How many times does she have to say it, before she realizes I don’t believe her?
"Pretty strange thing not to do nine times."
She sits up in the bed then. Is that how I look when I’m desperate?
 


Title: The Wall
Fandom: CSI
Author: theoharaPairings: Grissom/Catherine, Grissom/Sara
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: explicit sex, violence, could be triggering.

Gilbert is investigating the properties of tides.
It had taken Patricia Grissom a solid hour to figure out what, exactly, he was up to. He'd draw a long line in the sand... and stare at it. Draw another line beneath it... and stare at it. It wasn't until she'd noticed that the lines corresponded with the highest point of the ocean's reach that she'd figured it out.

Arrested Development


Title: The Halfway Girl
Author: zarahemla
Pairings: George Michael/Maeby
Rating: PG-13
Warning: incest.

Maeby hates her name. It's like the doctor asked her parents, "Will you love this child and protect her and keep her from all harm," and her dad said, "Sure!" and Lindsay looked at him and said, "Maybe." And that's how it's been all her life -- halfway secure, halfway happy. And halfway unbearable.


Title: game over pink champagne
Author: passionflows
Pairings: Lindsay/Michael, George Michael/Maeby
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: incest, finale spoilers.

They’d only been gone for a day when Pop-Pop yelled something about paying dues to responsibility and that old guy with one arm taught them a lesson, and his dad turned around the boat muttering something – not a swear word, moreso acknowledgment, really – and they were back at the dock, almost like they never left.


Title: Voodoo Economics (West Wing crossover)
Author: mazily
Pairings: Lindsay/Tabatha Fortis
Rating: R

She didn't become a poet to change the world. (Or maybe she did. Grey sky, blue sky, skies of green and orange over I-95 flickering behind her eyelids; maybe she's a poet because words are her weapon and she always came in last in PE. Except she didn't, not really, because she ran track and beat all the boys, and maybe that's why she wields her words like knives.)



Buffyverse


Title: Heads/Tails
Author: doyle_sb4Rating: PG
Pairing: Fred/Tara

Death-the-abstract is a desert with white sand and a burning blue sky, and maybe Death-the-person is the girl walking to her, the only other person in sight. Maybe not, though, ‘cause she doesn’t have a robe or a scythe, and she’s not on a pale horse; she’s all golden hair and bare feet, pink sari sweeping at her ankles.


Title: Like Filth, Like A Star
Author: glossing
Rating: R
Pairing: Darla/Nina
Warning: blood

Nina is early.
Three hours before sunset; the shivers are already setting in. Throbbing flow of white ink across red paper, moonlight threading through her veins, expectation and disgust beating in counterpoint through the chambers of her heart.



Title: Sister
Author: rozk
Rating: unrated (I’d give it an R, for themes)
Pairing: Connor, Justine
Warning: genderfuck

All that summer, Connor dreamed of their faces and woke screaming. 
The peaceful dead face of the man he thought of as his father as Connor set the torch to his pyre, and the loving, tortured face of the undead thing that thought of itself as his father as Connor plunged it and the coffin where it belonged into the depths of the ocean. He stared at the torn white throat of the one and the deadly white teeth of the other and realized that there was a completion between them of which he was hardly even the smallest part.




Firefly


Title: A Lacking in Plastic
Author: angelgazing
Rating: PG
Pairing: River gen
Warning: Serenity spoilers

They don't talk to her. Their mouths don't move and their eyes don't follow her and they don't whisper things to her when she's staring out the window, sitting in his seat.


Title: One
Author: fox1013
Rating: R
Pairing: River/Inara (River/Inara/m, River/Simon implied)

River wakes up.
It's late, or early, or neither or both, but Simon is not near her. She can sense him, usually, even if he's not here; Simon is a part of her and when he's far away it's like losing a limb.



Title: Time Flies You Can’t (The Da Sou Qiang Remix)
Author: iamsab
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: River/Mal, Simon/Kaylee, River/Simon, Mal/Inara
Warning: incest, explicit sex

This girl body does what she asks it to, when she asks it, but sometimes when she doesn't ask nicely enough she finds it does what it pleases. She's been teaching it when to kiss and when to kill, though it wants to do both those things all the time. If they knew, if Mal knew, if Simon knew what she knows they would throw a party for her willpower, a zui wu hui for her flesh instead of her presence, for its change and its control. But today she's allowed to kill, Mal told her to kill, and her body's so grateful it wants to leak and bleed.


House

Title: In The Region of Ice
Author: allthingsholy
Rating: PG
Pairing: Wilson/Cuddy

When she wakes, the sun is sliding in around the curtains and the wind is tapping beats against the glass. She feels the sheets tangled between her feet, the comforter tucked under one arm. Her eyes still closed, she focuses on the pounding in her head, the heaviness in the pit of her stomach; she’s sure she still smells like liquor, like bad vodka and good sex.


Title: Just Like You, Only Worse (American Psycho crossover)
Author: bethfrish
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Wilson/Patrick Bateman
Warning: on serious amounts of crack.

Julie throws more parties than the Unitarian church down the street from your house. Sometimes they're the lady friends she goes out to lunch with, other times they're members of the social circle she thinks the both of you are still a part of. Either way, your house is full of people you don't give a shit about, eating your food and prowling through the cabinets in your bathroom.


Title: Resistance
Author: _vicodin
Rating: R
Pairing: House/Stacy

You were made for one another, most thought. He was the jackass and you the lawyer that kept him in line. The two of you were volatile and passionate and never sweet, but you both liked it that way. You fought and made up and had sex, only to do it all over again the next day.
A lot of people thought you’d last.
