recs please!

Been in the community for quite a long time, but this is only my second time posting (first time was putting an ad on the beta page)

So, I feel like I've hit a rut. I've been a fanfic reader of the Buffy/Angel fandom since 2004. I've done most pairings, mainly slash, but some het slipped through (even had a spuffy phase. I know, I'm trying to block it out)
and I'm still a fan of Angel/Cordelia. The slash I've been into is, to recap, Spangel, Xangel, Angel/Doyle, Giles/Wes, Giles/Ethan, Giles/Xander, Wes/Gun, Wes/Angel, and Spander which is my main pairing and the one I've read most of.
And I mean most. I feel like where ever I go, i've already read it, or it's not good enough to keep me reading, or it's not long enough to really get me hooked.
I need some help. Please rec me to anything you think was worth reading, even if it's not spander. I just want something new that'll really get me hooked.
I do almost any warnings. I'm big on D/s and h/c involving that, I do Daddy!kink if it's not with derogatory language (no bitches and sluts) and I love a really long read, like Beautiful Broken and Repossession.
I don't do non-con, unless it's plot driving, and leads to something that really isn't non-con.

So, please, gimmie all you've got!

If you like long involved 'make your brain work' stories and don't mind het or even stories that aren't particularly focused on any pairing - check out M.McGregor - they have some absolutely wild fics and is just wrapping up their latest (I think wrapping up, its at 50+ chapters) which is my absolute favorite of theirs to date.

you can find most of their completed works on Xanderzone archive:

Have fun :)

I've posted brief reviews of my favorite fics (mostly Spander so far) here. You might also like these oldies:
Shara Nesu's Angel's Slavery series and other fics at (S/A)
"Number One Lowest Common Denominator" by Adsum at
Scorpio's Fractured Images at (S/X/A)

I absolutely loved "Number One Lowest Common Denominator" the first time I read it a year or so ago. Might go and have a re-read :)
Recognise Scorpio, will go and see why and if I've read Fractured Images. Thanks for giving me the heads up about the slavery series, but I have a thing for evil Angel (especially Angel goes bad, but not going Angelus). Is it Angel or Angelus?
I definitely know who you are, will go and remind myself of why exactly :D

Woops I re-read what you wanted and you may not like Angel's Slavery series nor Fractured Images (which is also just one story) as they are pretty non-con without redemption but Adsum's is probably right up your alley and Shara Nesu's and Scorpio's other fics are worth trying. I always fear the older writers who are no longer active in fandom may be ignored so I try to rec them whenever I can.

Nothing as long as Repo, but my Spander fic is here. There are a few multi-chapter fics. I haven't seen your name before, and I'm not a BNF so some of them might be new to you. Good luck! :)

I have a couple finished stories over at my LJ...feel free to check'em out... :)
8th-Sep-2007 09:51 pm (UTC)
The Reconstruction series by Wordsmith is a favorite of mine.
Also, the Matter Of series by Kay
Pretty much anything by Saber
Velvet Crypt has some good long fics
Sweet Memories by Kayla
Anything written by Spikedluv is a must read imho
Esmeralda's Stranger Things

Hopefully you haven't read everything here already
8th-Sep-2007 10:16 pm (UTC)
I was going to go search out Stranger Things myself. Thank god someone's got links handy!

Not sure if my stuff is to your taste and nothing as long as Reposession but my Spander fic can be sourced Here . All but one are longer rather than shorter

One of my absolute favorite Spike/Xander stories is fanbot's Unbreakable. It's post-Chosen. That's the link to the first one in her journal (it's got a link to a non-LJ interlinking posting for it). Or I've got them all in my memories for the story.

Heya, dahl. I've already pimped this comm, so I feel it'd be okay to pimp it again: Try checking out nekid_spike. There are some longer fics popping up as well as some absolutely brilliant shorter bits already there. You get a wide variety of Spike-situations and circumstances,certainly enough to keep you occupied for a long time to come! So, I suggest nekid_spike.

Hi, Maddie, I saw your request in the su_herald. If you're ever interested in Spike/Fred, here's a list of Spred fics that might strike your fancy:

And this is a list of miscellaneous BtVS/AtS fics, some angsty and some comical, various or no pairings, that I've very much enjoyed:

The board that I've linked to, Cold Dead Seed, has quite a few fics, mostly slash, archived on the board itself. To find them, go to the CDS main page and scroll down to the fanfic forums.

Hope that helps! :)
9th-Sep-2007 05:06 pm (UTC)
Oh, what's the su_herald? How'd I end up there? Cool.
You know, I've never tried Spred, might give it a go next time I'm having a het-phase. Thanks :)
I'll have a look at the the misc-y stuff too.

9th-Sep-2007 07:05 am (UTC)
PS sorry about the double dip before but James Chick's stuff is just awesome!!

9th-Sep-2007 07:41 am (UTC)
Tried to find some longer SX fics I like a lot that seem to be not so often recd. I know the feeling when you think you have read everything out there.



Non sequitopia

Getting to know you series

The groom and the bad man

In the Midst of It All

Dark Surprises

Never Say Never

A lot of older fics I haven't heard of before I found at
They stopped archiving 2003.
9th-Sep-2007 05:03 pm (UTC)
thank you, this look like it has potential!
I know I've read Hunger and Non-Sequtopia, thought both were great, but I don't recognise the other titles, so I'm hoping I haven't read them.

How could I forget tabaqui?! A lot of her fiction can be found at her LJ but I'm not sure Changes can. It can, however, be found on her website. I can't say enough good things about that story. Some of the lines in there... my god they're gorgeous.
9th-Sep-2007 06:11 pm (UTC)
Ah yes, Tabaqui is lovely. I've read practically all her stuff though, and I get what you mean about Changes. Wow, you know.

Btw, a very random question: how do you make the LJ names links? And how do you even make a standard link?

10th-Sep-2007 11:29 pm (UTC)
definitely tabaquis changes found here
and right here the wonderful, theres always a sneer in vegas by stillrose
