Okay, Destiel shipper friends, no matter how you felt about the finale…I think you can probably agree with […]
The Hellatus is upon us, friends, and to ease the burden of no new episodes, I’ve put together a little fanfiction care package for you, a part three to my Destiel favourites. So warning, darling, if slash and a profound bond that ascends into the realm of the metaphysical isn’t for you, I suggest looking for recs someplace else, because obviously you took a wrong turn on the Internet.

This list has been years in the making.
If you follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, you probably know that I’m a helpless multishipper in the Marvel fandom. It seems like every other week I’m emerging from AO3 with yet another new ship. So before I begin this list, I do want to disclaim that this list is no way comprehensive; the MCU has given new life to the fandom, and there is too much good fanfiction and not enough time. As I am but one reader, this list contains the fics/ships that I’m currently reading. The Collective has MUCH MORE Marvel fanfic recs over on our Tumblr (with even MORE ships), so be sure to have a look there as well. 🙂
Happy reading, my friends. And if there’s a fic that you think that I absolutely must read, please leave a comment or find me on Twitter! (Please indulge my insatiable multishipping). Fics are organized by pairing(s).

Summary: It’s four days to Christmas, there’s a city in shambles, and the nation is in mourning because of the actions of a single man.
My Thoughts: I love this author. It’s no accident that multiple fics by them ended up on this list.

(There is now a part three.)
The holiday season is here. We thought we’d pass on some good cheer. If you’re feeling the need to have a good read, click the titles below and have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Pairing: Dean Winchester/Castiel
Whoever recced this to me, I love you and I hate you. This is a beautiful story, beautifully written, and it hurts so beautifully. It’s an AU that begins in the 1940s, and it’s the love story of Dean Winchester and Castiel that spans decades.
I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t sob my way through the end of this, but for all that, it’s the happiest ending Dean and Cas could ever have. Recced by: The Collectress
Pairing: Stiles Stilinski/Derek Hale
In which Stiles cooks for Derek, the Hale clan is still alive, and everyone meddles in Derek’s love life. Oh for cute. Recced by: The Collectress
Happy Wednesday, Shippers. This week, I couldn’t choose between two fics, so in the words of the Collectiva Diva, why not rec both?
Rec #1: A Laying On of Hands
Author: fandomfan Word Count: 5675
Pairing: James Bond/Q Warnings: Hand!kink, smut
James has never had a thing for hands before Q.
I must thank fandomfan for converting me/welcoming me into the “hand-loving fold.” 00Q is a ship that I don’t sail nearly often enough (mostly because I read practically everything there was to be read six months ago), but then I come across a fic like this and I swoon. Quite literally, because this fic is hot. It is rare for me to rec a smutty one-shot, but then it is also rare for me to swoon like a Victorian school marm in a bodice-ripper Harlequin romance.
Besides, this is so much more than a smutty one-shot; this is a brief exploration of an intense sexual chemistry between two complex characters, and Bond’s fixation with Q’s hands is both sexy and telling. My favorite bit (well, aside from the extremely well-written sexy times) is this:
James backs off a step and gestures Q to his feet. He stands cautiously, and, touching nowhere else, James presses their hands together, palm to palm. Their fingers align, but they’re a study in contrasts. For each of James’—stubbed, thick, life-roughened—there’s one of Q’s—attenuated, supple, full of grace. They’re well cared-for, Q’s hands. None of the repeatedly broken and reset joints that tell James’ own past in tweaked muscle and re-knit bone. Instead Q has long, limber, nimble fingers that are even now folding over the tops of James’, nearly a whole joint’s length longer than James’ own. They’re keyboard-calloused and several cuticles have obviously felt the wrath of Q’s anxious teeth, but while James’ fingers are the blunt, brutal instruments he needs to carry out his work, Q’s do his bidding with a ballet dancer’s agile poise strung through their ligaments.

Hello, shippers. Today is a red letter day because 1) I’m actually allowing the Collectiva Diva to have an opinion about Fanfic Wednesday and 2) it kind of celebrates that faux holiday, Valentine’s Day.
Now, I think that V-Day is a bunch of PR spun by Hallmark to increase revenues, but if we’re going to celebrate love, I can think of no better way to do so than by shamelessly reccing my OTP: Destiel.
The Collectiva Diva and I have each chosen our top 5 fluffy Destiel fics, so without further ado, here they are, with a little bit of cutesy art thrown in. Click on the title to read the fic.
The Collectiva Diva’s Picks
Try Something Tuesday by almaasi
Author’s Summary: Human AU. Dean Winchester teaches a third-grade class. He’s new to this whole ‘bisexual’ thing – but by pure happenstance, he meets Castiel: a particularly dapper male librarian who moonlights as a substitute teacher. Dean’s curious and Castiel is willing, so why the hell not? Except, fate never intended it to be one-time-only…
My Thoughts: I’m not usually one for AU fics but I apparently have a fluff kink. Librarian!Cas and Kindergarten Teacher!Dean are strangely canonical in character and as cute as they come. And boy do they come. Yeah, there’s smut, but…ok, I have no excuses. You should know this about me.
