message 2: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena I'm not familiar with that one, but please go ahead and add it to the list.


message 3: by Syfy (new)

Syfy Hehe, I may be the only one in the world interested in seeing m/m Immortals After Dark...


message 4: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena That doesn't disqualify you from voting.


message 5: by Syfy (new)

Syfy ;P


message 6: by LenaLena (last edited Aug 31, 2012 10:48PM) (new)

LenaLena I don't have a whole slew of books for this list either, but once in a while you just run into one that makes you go: have sex already!

I knew the Ward books would end up high, but I love seeing Tolkien and the Bible up there.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

The bible, oh man, that thing is just crazy with pairings. And oh you know, there is some awesome Silmarillion fic out there.


message 8: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena Wondering what the disciples got up to?


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

No no, the old testament is where the party is. Disciple fic is just woobie meaningful sex with lots of eye contact. For beatings and bondage you need to go pre-Jesus.

Eta: for every pairing, there is a fic. Sigh.


message 11: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena I quit after Transformation too. I really liked it, but if any bromance should have been consumated it was that one.


message 12: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena That's the problem with fanfic of written works: getting the voice right is almost impossible. I had to stop reading Bujold fanfic for the same reason.

Yes. Although it doesn't bother me with Potter-verse stuff. OTOH Rowling doesn't have a really distinctive voice. It's all clear prose and basic story telling.


message 14: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena Potter doesn't bother me either.

I'd vote for that :p


Sarah ♥ dog crazy ♥ I'm not surprised LU and LR are at the top. :-)

Oh wow, I never did ship any M/M pairing in HP, but wow. I am definitely considering boarding that ship...


message 18: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena Let me know if you need me to point you towards some Harry/Draco fanfic, Vivian. One of my favorite ships!

Hmm that sounds quite tempting.. I'll be sure to :D


message 20: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena You can check my 'Drarry' shelf and/or join the Freeloaders, which has dedicated Drarry thread where people post their recommendations.


message 21: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper I could add dozens - spent a lot of years slashing other people's fiction, from Elvis Cole and Joe Pike, to Lord Peter Wimsey and Bunter (sacrilegious as that may be.)


message 22: by willaful (last edited Feb 07, 2013 02:50PM) (new)

willaful Syfy, who did you want to ship with in Lothaire?


message 23: by Anna (Bananas) (new)

Anna (Bananas) Had to vote for the Bible, because David and Jonathan were a great love story.


message 24: by Anna (Bananas) (new)

Anna (Bananas) What was that book where one of the MCs was named Phinneus and his friend pushed him out of a tree?

Rainbowheart Anna (Bananas!) wrote: "What was that book where one of the MCs was named Phinneus and his friend pushed him out of a tree?"

A Separate Peace. Oh, yeah, that belongs on the list!


message 26: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena Go ahead and add it!


message 27: by JG (new)

JG My reactions:

The Compleate Sherlock Holmes: Ahh, got it
Harry Potter: What the freak?
Twilight: This is getting weird


message 28: by Kaje (new)

Kaje Harper All of those have big, big slash fan fic lists...


message 29: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena Yeah, the only one on this list that puzzles me a bit is the Bible.


message 30: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart The Bible was probably added for David and Jonathan?


message 31: by LenaLena (new)

LenaLena Aren't they pretty canon though?
