Fandom: GLEE

Why this must be read:
This is a great, realistic fic about Brittany and Santana, and how they cope with Brittany's ADD. It's sweet, and the way Santana provides for Brittany is wonderful, but it's also bittersweet because they can't find a permanent solution. It's a good read.

1st-Aug-2011 02:32 am Chances are your chances are awfully good by fakeplasticsnow (PG-13)
Fandom: GLEE
Pairing: Kurt/Mike
Length: 4109

Why this must be read: Kurt is handcuffed to Mike Chang. It's not as kinky as it sounds.
This fic has a fantastic Kurt, Mike, and Brittany voice, and I like that she's just a teeny bit sneaky. I think this fic shows off the hilariousness and absurdity that is Glee, and manages to be sweet while doing it. Plus, Kurt's opposition to Valentine's day seems so like him.

"Hey, I watched you do 'Push It.' You can't judge me, all the goods were on display that afternoon. And then you semi-stripped for me earlier. In the library."

Fandom: GLEE

Why this must be read:
Kurt never thought that losing one's virginity would take so much planning.
This is a great, smutty fic about how Kurt and Blaine eventually lose their virginity together. It's sweet, and cute, and all the trial and error they go through is so appropriate for two teenagers who've never done this before. It's a great read, and [livejournal.com profile] skintightsocks tortures the reader just long enough before Kurt and Blaine finally manage to accomplish their end goal.

Fandom: GLEE
Pairing: Puck/Kurt
Length: 3 long parts
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] jockchic
Author Website: masterlist
Why this must be read:
This is another fantastic AU, future fic. It shows a darker side of Glee, and what could happen to these bright, young people. What [livejournal.com profile] jockchic has done with these characters is so very real, and they have so much more depth than in the show. And a lot of grittiness. I love the feel of the characters in this fic. Also, it says that this is still a WIP on her masterlist, but I think there's a clear end. It's possible more will be written in this universe, but the fic finishes in part three.

It's a little long, and all three parts are not clearly linked, so here's all three parts:

part one
part two

25th-Jul-2011 08:16 am words we use for you and me by carolinecrane (NC-17)
Fandom:GLEE
Pairing: Puck/Kurt
Length: 37,600 words, four parts
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] carolinecrane
Author Website: masterlist and AO3
Why this must be read:
After Kurt transfers to Dalton, his life is perfect. He has friends and a spot in the show choir, and a hot boyfriend who's totally into him, so it's easy to ignore the nagging feeling that something's missing. Then Puck turns up and Kurt's life gets a lot more

This echos a lot of thoughts I had before I started to like Blaine. He's too perfect, he's kind of boring, he's not good for Kurt. I don't really agree with those thoughts anymore, but I still like this fic. [livejournal.com profile] carolinecrane writes great characters, who are all believable, and in character. And she provides a plausible explanation for Puck's random disappearance in season two. It's an excellent representation of a Glee AU.

22nd-Jul-2011 03:21 pm The Music of Your Silence by of_a_crescendo (PG-13)
Fandom: GLEE
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine
Length: 6600
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] of_a_crescendo
Author Website: masterlist
Why this must be read:
This is a wonderfully well written, angsty AU. Fair warning: a lot of stuff by [livejournal.com profile] of_a_crescendo is kind of angsty. The premise of this story is that Blaine and Kurt are neighbors, and Blaine's mother is a musician. The catch: Blaine is deaf. This is the story of how Kurt and Blaine become friends (and more), in spite of the many things they have to overcome.

On a hot and dusty afternoon, it comes as a bit of a shock to Kurt Hummel, reading in his backyard and soaking up the sun under a shade, when a small paper aeroplane lands right in the middle of his book.

Why this must be read:
This is a sweet future, kid fic, that is a little bit angsty, but mostly sweet. It portrays Santana and Brittany's relationship beautifully. Santana is usually the one who takes care of Brittany, but Brittany knows how to take care of her girl.

20th-Jul-2011 08:26 pm How Wes Helped His Gay Friend... by nonexistantpup (PG)
Fandom: GLEE
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine
Length: 8200 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] nonexistantpup
Author Website: Masterlist
Why this must be read:
There are many reasons why people should read this. Of course, Wes is always a good reason, but what made me really stop and take notice was how well the author deals with Wes's "heteronormative conservatism." Wes is very supportive of Blaine, and his (slowly) budding romance with Kurt as long as he doesn't have to see it. And to top it all off, he's not entirely comfortable around Kurt, since Kurt isn't exactly the epitome of masculinity. The author takes this somewhat sensitive issue, and deals with it really well.

Why this must be read:
This gives a really nice look at all the complicated social aspects of Glee that were mentioned in the first overview. Members of Glee may be a family, but they also have an image to maintain to remain in their specific social circles, and this fic does a great job of showing that. It also does a great job of capturing the atmosphere of high school. It also does an amazing job of going beyond all that. Even though things have started to really look up for Kurt since season two, this is a great take on how the writers could have done it.

"Because if this is — I don't know, some kind of date," Burt says, "I want to talk to him."

Kurt has a vivid and terrible mental image of how that would go. "Oh, sure," he lies.

"And by talk to him," Burt elaborates, "I mean hit him with this tire iron."

Length: 2100+
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] skintightsocks
Author Website: Masterlist
Why this must be read:
Let me just say that everything [livejournal.com profile] skintightsocks writes is excellent. [livejournal.com profile] skintightsocks is a pair of authors, and most of their fiction is Kurt/Blaine, but even their other pairings are always in character. This is a really hot fic, and I love the way Tina and Mike interact with each other. The dialog is fantastic, and Tina is just the right amount of bossy, and Mike is sweet, but also a little devious. I hope you enjoy!

"Please stop talking about your mother," Tina groans. "That is not an unreasonable request."

Author Website: Masterlist
Why this must be read:
It's really difficult to write a good facebook-style fic, but this is excellent. And extremely funny. Kurt's exasperation, Blaine's trusting nature, and Jesse's (good-natured) bitchiness make for a great combination. Plus, this is an ensemble fic, and all the voices are done very well. If you need a laugh, this is definitely the fic for you.

Why this must be read:

"Would you want an SAT vocab book for your birthday?"

This story has great Finn/Kurt brotherly interactions. It's amusing how quickly they start to act like actual brothers. I also love any time Finn and Blaine interact, and this fic has tons of these interactions. And of course, Blaine and Kurt are sweet, as always. There's not really much to say about this fic except that it's funny, cute, and well-written. Something everyone should read.

13th-Jul-2011 10:26 pm Fandom Overview Update: Glee
It’s been a while since [livejournal.com profile] ashedrake wrote the fandom overview for Glee. Which leaves me with a season and a half’s worth of updates for you all! Since her overview was fantastic and thorough, and there’s no way I can live up to it, I’ll just try to fill you in on the general plot, new characters, and things that have happened to the main cast as best I can. Sorry if it’s a little long, there's a lot to cover.



General Summary
First, let’s start off with what happens in the second half of season one: there’s a lot of great drama and character development as we watch New Directions’ further struggles to actually make it to regionals. A lot of great stuff happens here, but spoilers abound for episodes 13-22 of season one, and all of season two, so don’t read any further if you don’t want to be spoiled.

5th-Jul-2011 04:26 pm I'm Too Busy Becoming a Beer Pong Champ to Study by Bekkis (NC-17)
Fandom: GLEE
Pairing: Finn/Kurt, Finn/hot college girls, past Finn/Puck
Length: 7377 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] bekkis
Author Website: [livejournal.com profile] tiny_infinity
Why this must be read: He doesn't know how it happens but Finn actually gets into college. Turns out, Kurt lives in his hall and they become BFFs. And then Finn has a gay crisis.

This is a college fic. And not only does [livejournal.com profile] bekkis write great porn, the whole gay crisis that Finn has is so believable, and so in character. Obviously the second half of season one kind of makes this story very AU, but it was one of the best stories written during the break. Her Finn voice completely makes this story, and I love how we get to go through his crisis with him. Plus, the way Kurt and Finn develop a friendship first is really sweet, and Kurt is understanding and caring. I think this is a great read, and it has a lot of great one liners.

Why thismust be read: I love stories about how Brittany and Santana meet and become friends, and this story is a great example of that. Santana is fiercely protective of Brittany, and I love how she gets Brittany. There's also great friendship development between Santana and Quinn, and Puck, and I think there's not enough friendships in this show, so I love it when an author does it well.

Hey everyone, my name is [livejournal.com profile] fincalian and I'll be driving the van for Glee this month. I'm going to rec as much as I can, in as wide a variety of stuff as possible, so I hope you all enjoy it! Sorry for starting a little late, things have been busy, but keep your eyes open because I plan to make up for my tardiness!

Fandom: GLEE
Pairing: Quinn/Rachel
Length: 6000 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] anomalousalanna
Author's Website: [livejournal.com profile] ficsbyalanna
Why this must be read: I've only recently become a Quinn/Rachel fan, but this is one I've had saved for a while. I love the slow evolution of Quinn and Rachel's friendship, and eventual romance, and I like how each character has to adjust to the new family dynamic. I think [livejournal.com profile] anomalousalanna really captures the softer, more insecure side of Quinn really well, and her Rachel is very adult, something we don't see enough of on the show. Everyone should read this, because I miss pregnant Quinn, and [livejournal.com profile] anomalousalanna shows another way she could have developed.

I'm [livejournal.com profile] rebelliousrose and I didn't drive the van as fast as I wanted to this month, since I contracted a computer virus that took me off the playing field faster than Kurt in need of hair spray. I'll hit you all again sometime! (Shh. Don't tell Coach Sylvester, she'll make me smell my armpits.)

Fandom: GLEE
Pairing: Puck/Rachel, Finn/Quinn
Length: One-shot.
Author Website: une fille on FF.net
Why this must be read:Mostly because it's FUNNY. Rachel and Puck are supersonic versions of themselves and it manages to wrap up most of the emotional issues of the kids of Glee without ever being condescending or failing to find the underlying emotional truth. Also, did I mention it's funny?

11th-Jun-2010 01:45 am Just Like Last Tuesday, Except With Zombies by angel_dawes, rated PG-13
I'm [livejournal.com profile] rebelliousrose and I am a Gleek. I've beeen waiting a long time to rec this fandom, so of course by the time it got around to me, I was incredibly busy. I'll try to catch up, and I am leading off with a bang.

Fandom: GLEE
Pairing: Will/Emma, Brittany/Santana, Finn/Quinn, Tina/Artie, and pretty much every other character one way or another.
Length: Ten chapters on FF.net, but each one is a self-contained gem.
Author on LJ: angel_dawes is not on LJ, but posts on FF.net
Author Website: Go here for more.
Why this must be read: This fic is approaching near brilliance; it was the first in the subgenre of Glee/zombie fic, which somehow works. angel_dawes manages to slide in references to BSG, the entire Whedonverse, Dr. Who and more Glee meta than you can shake a stick at- and it's FUNNY. And then touching, and then funny again.

Why this must be read:
It's future!AU, it's smut and it's. So. Fucking. Wonderful.

It's perfect. I lovelovelove how there's no easy fix or quick break, there's no rom com kiss that makes everything alright or angry storming out of the room that causes more drama. It's just... real. Very, very real.

The top/bottom dynamic really worked. It didn't seemed cliché at all, which it often does in Kurt/Puck fics, it slid very easily into the rest of their character traits and what they wanted. Now that I've read them like this (10 years in the future and grown up), it's the only way I can really imagine that they would fit together on a long term basis.

14th-Dec-2009 05:13 am Denial Isn’t Just a River in Egypt by mundaneone (PG-13 - R)
Fandom: GLEE

Length: 3,027
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] mundaneone
Author Website: Fic List

Why this must be read: It's Finn teaching Puck how to date Kurt, what's not to love? It's just very sweet to get an outside perspective on Puck fumbling through falling in love and how to deal with that, and it's great to see a Finn who may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but who really gets his friend and knows how to help him. And I really love the way Puck's in love, it's enough to make you swoon.

Why this must be read: This has me cracking up every time I read it! All the character's voices are spot on and the plot feels true to the show.

Author Website: Fic List

Why this must be read: Honestly, it's a story about Puck in a dress. Remember how he said "I'm a stud, dude. I could wear a dress to school and people would think it's cool." Yeah:D It's funny and sad in parts and Kurt's great... and in some ways it has that same quality that the show has: it shows us a person who's having a really hard time in that humiliating way you can only experience in high school - and then it turns everything upsidedown. It's my feel good fic because of that - and because of Puck in a dress.

Why this must be read: Quinn and Rachel fit so wonderfully together in this fic. Their explosive personalities make for so much hilariousness, it's heart warming to see the entire club get together to care for Quinn and the baby - and Rachel's dads are there! And they're awesome! Also the way she writes the pregnancy is just beautiful.

Why this must be read: I love how incredibly funny this is. It makes me laugh and laugh and it's still very realistic - you can identify with the emotiions behind Puck's actions. I wish maybe it could've ended three lines earlier, just to keep that amazing dry wit all the way. I adore how being bad just didn't work out the way Puck planned.

Why this must be read:
Slash and it's with my favorite Glee pairing, Kurt and Puck (because Foe Yay = hot)! This fic smutty smut smut and it's damn good. It's a porny setup that plays out wonderfully with just enough give and take - and Kurt talking dirty, too, which is yummy. I'm reccing this so early because one of the saddest things about riding this ship in the beginning was the lack of porn - and while I love non-porny fic just as much as the next girl/boy, I'm all for eating my dessert before my dinner.

Show Me Secrets You Didn't Know Was Inside is also a good example of how smut is at its best when it's supported by well written characters.
