let me feel your danger by ohmyloki

Pairing: Darcy/Loki

Author’s Summary: This is her chance to stop it before it goes too far and she can’t take it back. She’s standing on the precipice and one more word from her could either send her plummeting over the edge or pull her back to safe ground.

Darcy dresses up as Lady Loki for Halloween and runs into the man himself.

My Thoughts: I wouldn’t have figured this pairing to be as sexy as it was but hot damn! I want a god of mischief to have his wicked way with me.

Love a Man in Uniform by wildknees

Pairing: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark

Author’s Summary: Nothing but an authentic Captain America uniform will do for Tony’s Halloween costume, and luckily for Tony, he knows exactly where he can find one. Steve’s reaction to finding out that his uniform has been appropriated is a little different than Tony expects, though.

My Thoughts: I’m still fanning myself.

Our Names in Blood by Oh Captain My Captain

Pairing: Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes

Author’s Summary: The super soldier experiment results in Steve becoming a lethal killing machine. Isolated, alone, and terrified, Steve finds his way to Europe where he learns Bucky’s been taken by Hydra. When he finds him strapped to a metal slab and moments from death, Steve faces the choice: either let his childhood best friend – and the love of his life – die, or turn him and condemn his soul. Warning: Not recommended for the faint of heart. Deals with heavy violence, sexual content, mature subject matter, and no shortage of kinks and angst.

My Thoughts: This one is actually a rec from Collectiva Diva who says this about the fic: This vampire!AU is violent, scary, sexy and full of angst while not losing the canon characteristics of Steve and Bucky post CA: TWS. Just read everything by this writer. You won’t regret it.

More Than Flesh and Form by jer832

Pairing: Ninth Doctor/Rose Tyler

Author’s Summary: He realized he had to track the creatures, stop their carnage. Instead he searched the house again, calling her name.

My Thoughts: This one is a lot Gothic, a lot spooky, but with quintessential Doctor/Rose banter.

You’ll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties by Saras_Girl

Pairing: Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy

Author’s Summary: Harry abandons the usual Halloween festivities and stumbles across something curious.

My Thoughts: This fluffy fic is a rec from the Collected Mutineer, who says “Draco carves Harry’s face into a pumpkin. Enough said.”

Of Halloween Socks and Poor Timing by QuietLittleVoices

Pairing: Merlin/Arthur Pendragon

Author’s Summary: No one knew he was wearing silly Halloween socks under his patent leather shoes.

My Thoughts: The fluff! The fluff! The cute costumey fluff! Brush your teeth after you read this adorable modern AU, because you might get a cavity from the sweetness.

Bleed Me Out by antietamfalls

Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson

Author’s Summary: John isn’t exactly surprised to discover that Sherlock isn’t human. His vampirism doesn’t pose a problem, even when their relationship gradually grows into something more. That is, until a deadly revelation about John’s blood sends their lives spinning dangerously out of control.

My Thoughts: I wasn’t expecting to like a vampire!Sherlock fic, but I loved this plot and I read this one in a few hours. While it doesn’t take place over Halloween, the vampires are enough to get you in a spooky mood. Also, Mycroft is a vampire politician.

Man and Beast by Jupiter_Ash

Pairing: Sherlock Holmes/John Watson

Author’s Summary: Sherlock is a werewolf who is captured by a facility which wants to experiment on him.  When John is placed into his cage they expect Sherlock to attack him, but instead, he tries to mate with John.

My Thoughts: This one starts out scary, turns sexy, and ends epically.

This is Halloween by ScarletonWhitePetals

Pairing: Ichabod Crane/Abigail Mills

Author’s Summary: Ichabod Crane is still learning about customs in our time. Halloween is yet another custom that Abbie has to introduce him to, whether he likes it or not.

My Thoughts: This is the Ichabbie fic I spent most of my week searching for. Welcome to the armada, S.S. Ichabbie.

Of Pirate Princesses, Cowboys, and Firemen by nerdylittledude

Pairing: Dean Winchester/Castiel

Author’s Summary: It’s the very peak of autumn and the world is an array of colorful leaves and fresh October air. Imminent Halloween’s got Dean’s mouth watering at the idea of Cas in a western costume – it is NOT a fetish, by the way – and he’s so ready to spend the night ogling Cas until all their candy has been passed out by trick-or-treaters. A happy turn of events has their favorite little girl derailing his less-than-innocent plans with need for a trick-or-treating escorts; naturally Dean and Cas are the only men for the job.

My Thoughts: Squeeeeeeeeeeee.

the inexhaustible silence of houses by Askance

Pairing: Dean Winchester/Castiel

Author’s Summary: Almost two years after the world doesn’t end, Castiel falls from grace—and loses his voice in the process. It is the impetus for confession and change; before long, he is settling into a loving relationship with Dean, the Winchesters are tired, and hunting for a place to land has taken precedence to hunting anything else. Dean and Castiel fall in love with the strange little house on the end of Swallowtail Drive, and for a little while life is as it should be—sweet, affectionate, and beginning afresh. But more and more Castiel sees and hears things in the house that beg the question of whether or not a place itself can be alive. The walls and rooms seem to shift and grow and breathe, and one night, Dean comes home from a hunt changed in a way that Castiel cannot explain. In the months that follow, their domestic bliss takes turns for the dark and sour, and the confusion of their circumstances will ultimately test everything Castiel knows about the man he loves, and everything he believes to be true.

My Thoughts: This fic, THIS FIC. I was halfway to in love with Askance for “All Things Shining.” And now I’m entirely in love with everything about this story. It scared me, it moved me, and I cried through the last chapter. Not strictly a Halloween Fic, but the house gives the appropriate ambiance.

Little Red Riding Hood (you sure are looking good) by aohatsu

Pairing: Stiles Stilinski/Derek Hale

Author’s Summary: Stiles hangs out with werewolves. Stiles dresses up as Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween. It’s supposed to be ironic.

My Thoughts: This is one of the hottest things I’ve ever read. I recommend dabbing your laptop/phone/tablet with a cool cloth after clicking that link.

The Haunted Farm of Doom by TheRealNightTempest

Pairing: Stiles Stilinski/Derek Hale

Author’s Summary: Stiles is excited to win the Whittemore’s annual costume contest at their Halloween party, but when Jackson’s great aunt falls sick and leaves Stiles without plans on his favorite holiday of the year, Derek steps in with a plan of his own. For just the two of them. Craziness ensues. The one where Derek takes Stiles to a cheesy haunted house and Derek protects Stiles from fake monsters.

My Thoughts: This fic had me roaring with laughter, grinning like a loon, and awwing like a high school girl. A great humorous Halloween fic.

Happy Halloween, shippers!
