8th-May-2010 09:23 pm People Come Around (Story 4 in the Here's Us Together series) by fourteencandles (R)
Fandom: ENTOURAGE
Pairing: Vincent Chase/Eric Murphy, Turtle-centric
Length: 40,000 words in six parts
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] fourteencandles
Author Website: Entourage Fiction Index
Why this must be read:

This story is a single part of an expansive series called Here's Us Together. Earlier sections of this series have been recced here before, but there's something incredibly unique about People Come Around which makes it the stand-out story in the series.

Stories about Turtle are few and far between, much less one which takes place entirely from his viewpoint. While this story chronicles the challenges Eric and Vince face in their continuing attempt to maintain their precarious relationship, readers get in-depth access to the world Turtle inhabits. Far from being an extra, Turtle shines as a leading man.

Turtle's characterization is absolutely spot-on, from his hilarious interactions with Drama to his quiet moments of revelation. The author's portrayal walks the line between Turtle's capacity for self-interest and his genuine respect for friendship, creating a story so authentic that one wonders why the Entourage writers couldn't have included such depth and range in the show itself. Love him or hate him, readers will inevitably come to understand everything that makes Turtle exactly who he is.

This is my final rec. I've really enjoyed reccing this month and I hope I've helped you discover some new fic or rediscover some gems as I have. Here's wishing everyone a wonderful New Year.


Fandom: ENTOURAGE
Pairing: Vince/Eric, Vince/Eric/Sloan, Eric/Sloan, Sloan/Billy
Length: @ 44,000
Author on LJ:[livejournal.com profile] justabi
Author Website: http://archiveofourown.org/users/justabi

Why this must be read: The wonderfulness of this fic can't accurately be described with mere words like funny or hot, or heartbreaking. It's certainly all those things and more. It sweeps you up and keeps you dangling breathlessly for the whole ride and makes you love it. It's Vince's story and E's story, but it's also Sloan's story and Billy's story, and Abi makes you invest in all of them. In the interest of complete disclosure, it was written for me in the Entourage fest, but she turned a tiny vague prompt into an amazing product.

At eleven o’clock at night on a Tuesday Vince is standing half-naked in Sloan’s cavernous closet with E, who is looking very nervous and fiddling around with the elastic waistband of his silk boxers like he can’t decide if he might need to add a chastity belt or something, when Vince’s phone rings.

Author Website:None
Why this must be read:True outsider pov is very rare in the Entourage fandom, and outsider pov done very well is rare period. It's a crossover with Dirt but you don't have to be familiar with the show at all to understand that a tabloid is pretty much the perfect medium to cast a light on Vincent Chase. They are both completely invested and emotionally distant from everything at the same time. And it just works.

“Flakes don’t live with friends they’ve had since they were children,” Lucy counters. “Flakes don’t work their asses off on Oscar-winning movies. Flakes don’t love someone they’ve known for twenty-five years.”

Why this must be read:As fun as the Aquaman ride was I've always thought they should have taken Tapping the Source and I've always wondered where they might be now. Again, Fourteen Candles takes you on a journey that feels like real life. The happy, the sad, the inbetween. Plus I'm a sucker for sucessful E stories and this is one of the best.

Why this must be read:This fic is a big ole' tease. Just when you think it's gonna descend into angst, it pulls back with a quick grin and a 'no worries mate'. It's the guys being the guys for every second of it and it works perfectly.

Entourage looks so pretty when it cries that it's no wonder that most of the fic written for it contains large amounts of beautifully done angst. That's the opposite of the show which is usually about good times and fun and only dips into the angst well occasionally. So, to counter the stress that is the holiday season, these next two recs are all about the fun and frequently, the funny.

Fandom: ENTOURAGE

Why this must be read:Because everybody in the world knows E wants Vince and they have no problem telling him in variously insulting ways. Because Ari is not only spot on but frickin' hysterical in this. Because Vince would indeed make a gorgeous girl.



“Ari will get on board when he realizes how great the script is,” Vince says confidently, his arm still around Eric and his mouth therefore distractingly close to his ear. “Now come on, I went mascara shopping this morning. Help me decide which one makes me look like the prettiest girl.”

Why this must be read: Because Freddy calls Vince 'beautiful boy' and it's incredibly sexy. Because the show totally shafted us on that scene. Because Vince gets broken a little and put back together with pieces that don't quite fit the same anymore. Because this is scorchingly hot.


“I thought we were talking about a blowjob.”

Fandom: ENTOURAGE
Pairing: Eric/Charlie
Length: 4k
Author on LJ:[livejournal.com profile] black_eyedgirl
Author Website: Fic Masterlist
Why this must be read:The Eric and Charlie relationship on the show was adorable. This takes it to the next level. Charlie sees Eric in the way Vince and the others don't or can't, and he wants both more and less than what E gives to others. It's about Charlie and E and it's about Vince and E and in a lot of ways, it's just about E. It's lovely and heartbreaking and makes me wish even more that they had kept the character of Charlie on the show.


Eric blinks at him, very slowly, like he’s trying to figure out the question beneath the question. Charlie doesn’t know if Eric has always been this suspicious, or if it’s a new deal since the Medellín fiasco – Charlie wouldn’t be able to tell. Eric dropped into his world fully formed – a professional miracle-worker who won’t let Vince buy a new house until they book the next film. Eric over-thinks everything because of something that happened before Charlie knew him.

Author on LJ:[livejournal.com profile] dancinbutterfly
Author Website:None
Why this must be read: Originally written for Oxoniensis porn battle this is hot,hot,hot! But it's also edged with angst on Eric's part and a desire to get his power back. The fact that he can partly do that by screwing Michael Phelps into the mattress is just a lovely bonus.

“He says he’ll try and means it because the guy’s got a bit of a goofy face but under his button down shirt is a body he wants to see naked. But he doesn’t think it’ll happen.”

Why this must be read:I love epic fics just like the next greedy little fangirl but this story is like a hard jab-quick, short and still a knock out. One of my favorite Entourage fics--this offers a great Ari pov and it captures everything frustrating, intoxicating and addictive about Vince.


“Not if the romance doesn’t sell.” Ari really is going to kill this guy. A string of bad career choices have in no way affected Vince’s ability to moisten every pair of panties in the room. Danby looks Vince up and down. “He doesn’t look like he could be gay.”

Vince/Eric is pretty much the default pairing in the Entourage fandom, and absolutely my OTP but one thing about small fandoms is that pretty much any pairing gets read and appreciated. So these next few recs are all about mixing it up a bit.

Fandom: ENTOURAGE
Pairing: Eric/Ari
Length: @ 1,000
Author on LJ:[livejournal.com profile] paragraph
Author Website: http://www.thelongdarkteatimeofthesoul.com/

Why this must be read:Eric/Ari is the 2nd most popular pairing in the fandom. It's like the strong, slightly bitter black coffee to Vince/E's creamy cappuchino. This story is all claws and teeth like their relationship, and it's good like that.

Eric checks them in at the desk, asks for a double room, like they're business partners on a budget, pays in cash and doesn't wait for Ari once he has the key. Ari has to fucking jog to catch the elevator and he wants to smack the shit out of Eric, but that's not how this game is played, so he just raises an eyebrow.

Length: One-shot. Under 12k

Why this must be read:The evolution of a relationship in 5 parts--except it's still evolving and that's what makes this so affecting. There's no foregone conclusion, no pat ending and you're swept along for the ride.

They've been fucking for a year and a half, on and off. Mostly on. Kevin has yet to figure out what this is really about, for Adrian. The one time he tried, Adrian asked him if everything had to be about something, and ended up down on his knees in Kevin's kitchen, with his mouth hot around Kevin's cock. Pretty much anytime Kevin has a question, he just seems to end up coming so hard he can't breathe, or even remember what he wanted to know.

Adrian slows a little, wrinkles his nose. There are a lot of ways Adrian isn’t Vince, about as many ways as Kevin isn’t Eric.

In honor of yuletide posting day, I'm reccing the tiniest fandom within a tiny fandom. Entourage RPF.

Length: One-shot. Under 12k
Author on LJ:[livejournal.com profile] dirty_diana
Author Website: http://shockingpink.compromisingpositions.net/
Why this must be read:Well, when I said it was a tiny fandom I should have said miniscule. As far as I know, this was the first ever Entourage RPF. It was also a Yuletide gift for me, so I'd be a little biased even if it wasn't awesome, but it is. Those things make it unique--the fantastic writing, poignant undertones, fun cameos and kick ass characterization make it a must read.


Adrian worries about what's going to happen when they're not so into this anymore. This being going out at night, getting drunk and fucking in the early morning, damp kisses and slow, teasing handjobs and falling asleep in each other's beds and getting woken up at awkward hours by friends and agents on the telephone.

Author Website: Entourage fic tag
Why this must be read:I'm a sucker for a good hitman story and this really one works. It begs the question--E and Vince without each other, what would they have become? And maybe it begs the question of when is it too late to meet that person. It's all draped in a well created universe with perfectly framed cameos by canon characters.



Later, watching Vincent Chase, inelegantly sprawled on his back where he‘d been deposited, snoring to the heavens, Murphy realized that he wouldn’t be killing Vincent Chase in the foreseeable future. He didn't kill puppies. And that's what Chase was, a shaggy, goofy puppy that had made a gigantic mess on the carpet. He could be corrected. But there was still the matter of the contract.

Why this must be read: Yet.another a/u with the guys in different lives entirely, proving once again that they really do work in almost any scenario. The author does a fantastic job of keeping them in character and that is the thing that really makes this click for me. Vince is a dancer instead of an actor, but with the same natural talent, luck, laziness and lack of discipline, only here in an art that requires all that and more, it's not really working for him, until Eric. Cameos by the rest of the gang in parts perfect for them just make this a delight.

Length: Novel length

Why this must be read: By turns funny, hot and heartbreaking, this is pretty much the hookerfic to end all hookerfics. Based on the blog/book/tv series by Belle Du Jour, it runs the gamit of sexual acts. And the kink is fun, but the heart of it, is Vince at a crossroads in his life. Written as a series of journal entries, the story sweeps you up. Vince isn't 'a hooker with a heart of gold' and this ain't Pretty Woman. "It's a comedy and a tragedy, just like life."

I realize that I forgot to mention before that I fuck people for money. I like it. And more importantly, I'm good at it.

This was actually one of my prompts in the Entourage a/u fest and I couldn't be happier with this. Fun and twisty and good.

There are three rules. The first is: never mix business and pleasure. (And if you really must, then make sure you never mix business and love). They break them all the time, of course, but Ari really wishes E would stop doing all three at once.

I'm going to be doing a/u recs for this week. Most of the a/us in the Entourage fandom are of the 'what if you turned left instead of right' type. They pretty much stick to the canon of the show with small changes here and there. Not that there's anything wrong with that. This week though, I'll be reccing stories where the changes are significant in some way--some of the 'what if' variety that set the guys on a different course and the delightful few that take the characters into a completely different life.

Why this must be read: Because really the Entourage gang was made to be mobbed up, and this story does it in a dark, heartbreaking, yet completely awesome way. If you squint, yeah, they could be these guys.


Vince wants to scream or cry or punch something. He wants to storm back into the house and demand that Eric tell him the truth. He wants to pretend like Special Agent Gold never walked into his life because he's never so clearly been given the choice of betraying Eric or risking losing his life.

Why this must be read: Small fandoms often don't hit a lot of the tropes the larger ones manage--period pieces, supernatural stuff, crack fic, etc..., so it was a double joy to get this. It's Mpreg, fair warning, but well written, funny, angsty, believable Mpreg. Abi is a terrific writer with a knack for digging the knife in just right and then pulling it out again and healing you up.

Plus it's smartly in character, with a terrific Turtle, poignant and romantic, and just goes once again to prove that crack in the hands of a a really good writer becomes the pure, uncut good stuff. Check this one out, plus you can say you read the only Mpreg Entourage fic to exist--or at least to show it's face to the world.

Why this must be read: The thing about Fourteen Candles is that she writes gorgeous, plotty, long fics that feel like the truth in the way that a lot of fanfic feels like lovely fantasy or wish fulfillment. The story feels real, feels like we've seen it play out in headlines before.

This story is her take on the romantic comedy and if Hollywood actually did romantic comedies with the character development, plotting, and consequence of this story, I'd still be watching them.

I'll be driving the Entourage Crackvan this month. It was last taken for a spin in early 2008 so the field is pretty fresh. Entourage is still a tiny fandom and there aren't a lot of writers, so expect multiple recs by certain authors. We may not have many, "...but what's there is 'cherce'". Most of the recs will be Vince/Eric as that's the main pairing in the fandom and also my favorite, but I'll try and mix it up as best I can.

This is the original over view here overview

and one I did for another comm. 2nd overview. I've received permission to include Entourage RPS since there's such tiny amount it can't stand on it's own. Minor overview here

Why this must be read:Written for Yuletide, this is one of my favorite Entourge stories by one of my favorite authors. Astolat is amazing writer in multiple fandoms and I just wish she did more Entourage fic. Several of hers were recced previously but I didn't want this one to be missed. It's fun and hot with an Eric that spends most of the fic on the tilt a whirl in a wonderful way. Add in a fabulously acerbic Ari and an aspect of Vince we rarely see and you've got this gem.

Eric looked at the bill and the neat little line of coke lying on the polished desk. This was clearly the beginning of the end, doing coke with Ari Gold on a Friday night, just so he could get i's dotted and t's crossed.

Fandom: Entourage
Pairing: Vince/Eric
Author on LJ:: [livejournal.com profile] fourteencandles
Author Website: entourage tag on LJ

So for my last Entourage reccomendation for the month, I saved the absolute best for last. I only found this story recently, and was absolutely blown away both by the scope of it and by the astonishing truth of it. Fourteencandles understands both Vince and Eric so very very well; the characterization in this story is note-perfect. This story is, god. It's like my one true story in this fandom. This is them, this is why I love them, this is why I want all of you people to love them as much as I do. I cannot reccomend this story enough.

Things you should know: it is very long! Be prepared to lose some hours of your life reading it. In fact, earmark a Saturday, make a pot of tea, and sit down in a comfortable location, because you will not want to leave in the middle of it. Also, the Turtle characterization--and yes, I said Turtle, in a Vince/Eric story--is absolutely stunning. I wish the show wrote Turtle as well as this author does.

So if this fawning effusiveness isn't enough to get you going, here's a taste:

The thing between Eric and Vince had rules. Eric liked this. He liked the idea of order being imposed. He’d had rules in every relationship he’d ever been in, from his mother on down. With Vince, the stakes were higher, so the rules were more absolute. Eric didn’t write them down anywhere, but he kept track. Even after things were over, he could have quoted the rules as quick as he could come up with his home address in Queens, the license plate number of the first car he’d ever outright owned, or the first line he’d ever heard Vince say on the big screen.

Rule number one: No one could know.

They figured this out in high school.


If We Were Anybody (Here's Us Together Series)

And that's it for me. There's more Entourage fiction out there! Don't despair! I hope you've enjoyed this fandom and these stories as much as I have.

Vince is maybe a little jealous. And maybe a little clueless. He's lucky that he's pretty. And that he has Eric.

"Are you really this stupid?" he asks Eric as they make their way to the car. "Because if I'm the smart one, we're in serious trouble here, E. Come on."

Eric snorts at him. "Are you really this fucking stupid? Because if you keep that shit up, that going to bed shit, next week the tabloids are gonna start saying you're fucking guys, I don't know, you're in bathrooms with Lance fucking Bass."

Vince slams his door and says, "Well, you know what? Fuck that, I'll just tell them he's awesome in the sack," and they both sulk all the way home.

Fandom: Entourage
Pairing: Vince/Eric
Author on LJ:: [livejournal.com profile] astolat
Author Website: fanfic by astolat

This story, jesus wept. It breaks your heart and puts it back together with cellotape and elmer's glue. And that may not sound like a reccomendation, but trust me on this, it most definitely is. The thing about Vince is that--he's a person who takes chances. He's a risky guy. Sometimes those risks pay off, and he's a golden boy. Other times, he falls on his face, but he almost always gets back up again.

The only times he hasn't are when he risks the people he loves.

Um, and the other reason I love this story is because it is very much my wish fulfillment for Eric Murphy. Apart from the catalyst. Anyway, go read.

"Hey, promise not to punch me?" he said, when they got out of the car.

"What?" Eric said, but Eric wasn't going to hit him anyway, Vince knew that, so he went ahead and did it. They were just outside the door; Eric had the keys in his hand. Vince kissed him carefully, holding Eric's head still so he wouldn't mess it up by jerking around, making it serious and going deep, breathing in so he caught Eric's aftershave, licking at Eric's mouth. He tasted like beer, and his mouth was soft, and it wasn't all that different, except he had a little scrapey beard shadow around his mouth that felt kind of cool, and his shoulders, that was different. It was weird, because Eric wasn't a big guy, but kissing him they felt huge, big and solid, and his arms under his shirtsleeves were hard.

"What the fuck?" Eric said, shoving him off. "Are you high?"

Fandom: Entourage
Pairing: Vince/Eric
Author on LJ:: [livejournal.com profile] giddygeek
Author Website: The Geekdom

This is essentially the story about how Vince got Eric to come out to LA. It's such a throwaway line in the show, because we meet the characters after Eric has become somewhat entrenched in LA, enough that he's not leaving. But it adds such depth to the relationship between Eric and Vince--that Vince had to compel Eric to move to California, that he cared enough to do it. That it mattered to Vince's life that Eric was there.

Vince shook his head. "You're spinning your wheels, E. And you know why I'm home? Cause I got a movie. I got the movie, Eric, two million dollars, a house, a car, my name on the posters. Jessica fucking Alba for my co-star. I'm home cause I made it."

Eric was pale, bright red spots on his cheekbones. He leaned back and crossed his arms over his chest. "Good for you, man," he said to the tabletop and Vince couldn't even be mad 'cause he fucking meant it, Eric, he meant good for you when everyone else in Queens had meant fuck you, give me something.

"Thanks. E. Look at me." Vince smiled. "E, c'mon. That's not the only reason I came home. Ask me what else I came here for."

"What'd you come here for, Vince?"

You may notice that this is not a Vince/Eric story. Believe it or not, I can actually be convinced that the world of Entourage does not revolve around Vince and Eric's true, pure, bitchy love; but generally it's only because of zahra's mad skills at Ari Gold characterization. This is a) hilarious; b) from Lloyd's perspective, and thus for the win; c) a great pick up to the season three finale, which left us all hanging like a bitch. It's been jossed, but is so totally worth your time to read. Por ejemplo:

On day three of TVC, Ari comes to the office wearing his best Brioni suit and the blood red tie that always makes Lloyd think of filet mignon and Jaws. Ari only wears this tie when he's been dreaming of sacrificing babies in front of god, the paparazzi, and everyone eating at The Ivy.

Lloyd knows this because Ari told him about this dream the day after Vince told the Foreign Press that the new and improved Queens Boulevard was a piece of shit.

That was a rough week.

Lloyd misses that compared to this.

Today, Lloyd makes twenty-three calls to Eric's cell phone, every last one of which goes to voice mail. He calls Vince six times, Turtle fourteen and Drama none.

Nobody hangs up on Lloyd.

Of course, nobody calls Lloyd back either.

This is another version of how Vince got Eric to come out to LA. But what I love so very much about it is that it's not what Vince does, but what he doesn't do, that brings Eric around.

Vince can't ask this time, he's fucked up something awful and he can't ask, and Eric guesses that's the point.
