island_of_reil: (levi)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
Sorry for being so late with this rec post! I’ll make it a little longer than usual this time around.

noero — “Indulgent” (E)
Levi often gives Erwin a massage, and Erwin one day offers to return the favor. Levi has only ever known sex as a tool, as a game, but this feels like neither… Levi realizes it’s not just the oddly gentle way Erwin maneuvers about him, but that it’s Erwin and that he wants to touch Levi. This is what renders him helpless, at his mercy. 2,687 words.

singie — “Hand to Hand” (G)
Pre-slash; based on but divergent from A Choice with No Regrets. Levi, too keyed up to sleep out in the field on his first mission, joins Erwin on a tree branch. After some bantering about their difference in height, Erwin presses his palm flat against Levi’s. Fluffy and mildly humorous; not much UST, although you can find some between the lines. 1,306 words.

tokiNOOO (tokino) — “The Still of the Silence” (E)
Established relationship. After the devastation of the 57th Expedition, Erwin knocks on Levi’s door to see how he’s doing. Levi’s grief over his squad manifests in an anger at Erwin that literally leaves him speechless — and violent. And, once Erwin bests him in the fight Levi starts with him, looking for a different sort of physical outlet for his rage. 1,807 words.

angriff (refusals) — “amechania” (T)
An alternative take on chapters 49–51.
Levi’s lack of direction came not from aimlessness but from infinite inertia. He was the immovable object to Erwin’s unstoppable force.

Levi is no scientist or scholar, but he’s familiar enough with the way things work to know that it’s impossible for two such concepts to coexist at the same time.
“Sir, Commander Erwin Smith has officially been reported missing in action a-and… and presumed dead.” And, with that, an injured, infuriated, terrified Levi goes out to find him: It’s not enough just to know that [the Titans] are dead; Levi has to be the one to personally take everything from them just like they have taken everything from him. The author knows their characters and nails them perfectly. 7,867 words.

NanakiBH — “Fulfillment” (E)
Erwin turns control over to Levi for one evening, and Levi wants him on his knees.
[Levi’s] actions spoke loud enough for him to understand what intentions he had, but it was the heat in his gaze, the firm set of his shoulders, and the tension in his muscles that really told him in what way Levi needed him tonight.

He wasn’t going to make him fight for it. They fought for everything else in their damned lives.
2,851 words.

DaftDays — “Hands off” (E)
Levi, who’s wanted Erwin for years, watches him train early one morning from the shadows at the edge of the sparring field. Erwin, noticing him, invites him to spar, as they’ve done many times before. But this time is like none before:
Levi has never known he has a thing for being overpowered, not before he met Erwin. If it was anyone else, Levi would be fighting for his life, but now all he can feel is arousal, strong and powerful, all the pent up lust and frustration he’s been storing inside him rushing to the surface now that he finally has the commander where he wants him.
I’ll add only that the tags include “dubcon,” “frottage,” and “Levi comes in his pants.” And that there may be a sequel eventually. 2,208 words.

Metallic_Sweet — the Anabasis series
These fics, Levi POV and readable as either Eruri or gen (and each as standalone), cover his five years in the Survey Corps from the fall of Wall Maria to just after the Clash of the Titans. The writing juxtaposes emotional devastation, dry humor, and keen characterization. The author’s take on Levi's cleanliness quirk is obsessive-compulsion with an edge of paranoia, borne of horrendous childhood experience and intensified by later ordeals. Aside from canon-typical violence, there is famine, non-sexual bedsharing, drinking, hurt/comfort, moral ambiguity, and, rather canonically, “Shitty Situations and Shittier Coping Mechanisms.”
  • “Xanadu” (3,919 words; T) — The SC officers watch the refugees be marched in from Wall Maria, then marched out to their deaths. Afterward they go into Utopia to beg the Sina nobles for money at a sumptuous banquet. All the while, Erwin and Levi grow closer.
    “So the swine hide away and gorge themselves,” he'd said over dinner after a particularly late mapping session.

    “Some do,” Erwin answered, slicing a small bite of the steak on his plate. “But none of them have ever seen the open sky.”
  • “Xibalba” (3,557 words; M) — This fic, named for the K’iche’ Maya underworld (literally “place of fear”), is set at an unspecified time in the four years after “Xanadu.” Levi, thrown by a titan, spends a week in an abandoned farmhouse with a wound to his back he can’t reach. He sinks deeper and deeper into fever, hallucination, and agonizing sepsis before he’s rescued. He deals with convalescence about as well as you’d expect, and with caretaking attempts from Hange, Petra, and Erwin even less well.
    Levi had closed his eyes, reached back inside of his mind to the shredded bits that litter the memory of before he was Humanity’s Strongest, and found only dust and ash. Dirty, like everything that he was and still could be again.
  • “Xenophon” (7,880 words; T) — After Erwin loses his arm, Levi — with the help of Moblit, Armin, Jean, and Sasha — takes over the running of the Survey Corps. Which he desperately does not want to do, because
    “I’m not a fucking replacement —”

    As soon as the word leaves his mouth, it’s like the floor has been ripped out from underneath him, and he has to catch himself against the desk to prevent his knees from buckling. He feels like he’s going to blow apart, fall in upon himself, simultaneously burn up and evaporate into nothing. His vision tunnels, becomes a single speck within blackness, and he has to clench his right hand tightly around the side of his own neck to ground himself, to stop himself from breaking more of Erwin’s things.
    Oh, and as for that keen characterization I mentioned earlier? Try this on: “Okay,” Moblit says, and he’s been around Hange too long: he’s developed that ability to say one thing but clearly communicate he doesn’t believe a single word that just came out of Levi’s mouth.

andtheheir — “Find Hell With Me” (E)
Levi’s early days with the Survey Corps and Erwin (they’re “Rivaille” and “Irvin” in this fic), jossed of course by ACWNR. The fic opens with a trial for Levi that echoes Eren’s in canon, as do his first days with the Survey Corps. You can cut the UST with a knife: in Levi and Erwin’s physical altercations, in their slowly developing mutual respect and trust, and, especially, in a haircut scene that is far hotter than many sex scenes I’ve read. Also, holy goddamn loyalty kink — including a formally given oath, and it’s not what you’d expect. Bonus: a nonbinary, level-headed Hange who watches out for Levi. 11,979 words.
island_of_reil: (cruel ... and beautiful)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
anonymous — untitled
Levi/Erwin. D/s, knifeplay with blood, other painplay, breathplay, humiliation.
Excerpt. )
Characterization of the two of them, and their relationship, is dead-on, if somewhat jossed by ACWNR. 1,987 words.

anonymous — untitled
433-word Erwin/Reiner ficlet; D/s with no bondage or painplay.
Excerpt. )

anonymous — "a boy and his sword"
Jean locks himself into a storage room and fucks himself with the hilt of his sword. There's blood and pain, but there is also an incredible amount of hotness. 2,906 words.
Excerpt. )
anonymous — "Stay"
Levi/Eren, Eren bent over a chair with his pants down, spanking, belt whipping, possessive D/s… HNNNNGGGHHHH. 1,460 words.
Excerpt. )
Carthage — "these tides of men"
A series of five Eruri BDSM PWPs; they switch roles. Bondage, including shibari; orgasm denial; and one incident of calling the scene off because the other isn't enjoying it. 2,498 words.
Excerpt. )
daphnerunning — "When We Need It"
Hange, Levi, a strap-on, and 750 words. Hilariously IC: Hange is something of a sadist. Sometimes, Levi needs that.

sparklecringe — "sweet thing"
A panicked Eren flies to Armin's rescue on the battlefield, only to find the titan dead and Armin coated with blood and gore. Relief turns to arousal, fueled by the smell of blood — and Armin tops from the bottom.
Excerpt. )
Roughness, biting, handjobs, UNF. (Oh, and at the very end, Levi shows up, and then it's hilarious.) 2,867 words.

trashcan — "squad leader down"
At 19, Jean's now a squad leader, Armin a strategist. Trust the strategist to make an art out of ravaging Jean, waging war on his senses with an efficiency that was just unfair. Bondage, gag, blindfold, biting, bruising, begging, praise, rough fucking. There's a reason I had a note for myself next to this link that said "GODDAMN. O_0" 1,846 words.
island_of_reil: (cruel ... and beautiful)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
bur — "Freckles"
Jean has made it his mission to count all of Marco's freckles. Erotic fluff ending in Trost!angst. Canonical character death, needless to say. A wonderful job of showing, not telling, for both the fluff and the angst. Mature (graphic gore); 730 words.

asuralucier — "Memento"
Sweet and sad. Sasha is assigned to clean for Levi while he recuperates. She realizes someone used to share his room with him. A very nice character study of them both. Teen and up; 1,550 words.

anonymous — "Always want what you can't have"
Levi/Petra, getting off during sex on the possibility of him getting her pregnant. Strangely (to me, as this is so not my kink) hot — and bittersweet, knowing what we know ultimately happens. Sexually explicit; 630 words.

anonymous — "the drop of water hollows the stone" (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Parts 4a & 4b)
Erwin and Levi come together, then grow apart, over the course of their working together in the Survey Corps, from Erwin first teaching Levi to salute to the aftermath of the 57th Expedition. There's a little Levi/Hange at the end. Beautifully written and characterized for all three of them; full of poignant observations about mortality and psychological damage. Because when it comes down to it, for all his bitterness and resentment and anger and grief, the only thing Levi truly blames Erwin for is not letting him die with them. Mature (graphic violence); 9,928 words.

anonymous — "Draining the Ocean"
The author of this WIP intended to have Armin kidnapped by slavers instead of Mikasa, then for him and Eren to reunite at 15, with Eren a soldier and Armin a sex slave — and the only one who can control Eren in his titan form. However, they left SnK fandom for health reasons, and the fic ends at the doorway to the kidnappers' cabin. Still, it's very much worth reading. The writing is breathtaking, the author crystallizes essential elements of the boys' characters at age nine, and there is already achingly sweet if poorly understood romantic longing on both their parts. Mature (graphic gore); 7,912 words.

queertitan — "as long as there are stars above you"
Men are toy soldiers in Erwin's hands, and like toys, they break. Warning: Major character deaths. This highly regarded Eruri fic is bleak, gutting, and absolutely worth reading for its brilliant use of language and its incisive character study of Erwin. Explicit for both sex and violence; 3,645 words.

anonymous — "to the old world"
Lyrically written second-person Eren POV, present tense, from childhood until a canon divergence in the 57th Expedition arc (warning: major character death). Can be read either as gen or as pre-OT3 for the Shinganshina Trio:
The three of you wander outside, and it's dark—it's very dark, and you can see the stars shining brightly above you. Their soft twinkling is warm somehow, and the moon-glow illuminates your skin in a pallid color; Mikasa makes a knowing noise beside you and Armin raises his hands to the sky and names off the constellations one by one—"Draco, Bootes, Lacerta, Perseus, Cygnus, Leo Minor, Canes Venatic, Serpens Caput, Ophiuchus"—and he continues reciting them, index finger delicately poised to trace over imaginary lines in the sky.
There are some lovely moments with others of the 104th too. Mature (graphic violence/gore); 4,546 words.

Anarhichas — "Parasitoid"
This Eremin mpreg fic is mostly known for body horror, and there's certainly that, but it also made me choke up at numerous points. The author chooses not to warn but has given permission to provide a few warnings whited out: loss of bowel and bladder control, surgical guro, and major character death. There are also a few funny lines. Mature, shading toward explicit at points; 10,587 words.

Aisca — "The Enemy"
Plotty canon divergence in which Levi's squad survived the 57th Expedition. The MPs abduct him, flog and otherwise beat him, and gang-rape him — while his squad watches in horror from the rafters, unable to rescue him without risking arrest for treason and disbandment of the Corps. The beatings are very, very graphic. But the author only hints at the rapes, interspersing them with Levi's memories of reuniting with his squad after the 57th, and the effect is emotionally pulverizing. That said, I wasn't in tears until his post-rape reunion with his guilt-stricken squad and the touch of Ereri at the end. The themes of leadership, loyalty, and sacrifice strongly undergird this entire fic. Mature, shading toward explicit at points; 10,083 words.
island_of_reil: (Scherezade)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
Except for "Keep it On," which I'd rate as "Mature" per AO3 guidelines, these are all sexually explicit.

asmallwave — "Caught"
Armin and Jean are "a thing." Eren doesn't know that, so when he and some other Survey Corps personnel find them in the woods, he thinks Jean's raping Armin. Needless to say, it doesn't go well for Jean after that. And, after they're marched into the mess hall during dinner and have to Explain Themselves To Captain Levi, it doesn't go well for any of them.
     Jean and Armin are absolutely adorable in their clumsy awkwardness, Jean's solicitousness for Armin is sweet, and the smut, while not terribly explicit, is hot — well, until Eren rudely interrupts them, anyway. If embarrassment is your squick, you might want to pass on this one, but I found the ending funny. 3,416 words.

anonymous — "Fucking Eren"
Set early on in training. After fighting with Eren in the mess hall and thinking resentfully about how Eren doesn't deserve Mikasa's devotion, Jean goes off into the woods and tries to beat off to thoughts of Mikasa going down on him. But instead of imagining dark eyes, long black hair, and pale hands, he finds himself imagining green eyes, short brown hair, and tanned hands… 1,124 words.

anonymous — "The Perks of Being A Levi Flower"
Prompt: "Levi is a flower that Carla bought for Eren for his room and he watches Eren masturbate…. I have no excuse for this and I am not sorry." Neither am I. You get all that and "plantacles" too. Grade-A crack that is also quite hot. And in character, insofar as photosynthesizing!Levi can be in character. 861 words.
     ETA: There's a second fill there now called "Double Trouble," 1,726 words, also quite hot and quite funny.

gaygaygaygaygay0 — "Keep it On"
Eren/Jean, with Jean POV. Things are getting hot and heavy between them until Jean starts to take his pants off — and Eren protests. The reason? Nudity reminds of him titans and is therefore a boner-killer. The dialogue is perfect: "Eren, if you haven't noticed, I, unlike Titans, HAVE A DICK. It's pressing RIGHT against your LEG, and it's telling me that you're being fucking stupid right now." "Well, tell your dick to shut the fuck up because we're not having sex naked." Fortunately, Marco's there afterward to suggest a workaround to Jean. 909 words.

anonymous — "Dust Bunny"
Armin's on cleaning duty in an unused area of the barracks. He sees a clump of dust roll under a bed, chases it, and finds himself stuck there. And then he learns that this part of the barracks, and especially this bed, aren't as "unused" as he thought. Featuring Reiner/Bertholdt, Eren/Levi, Eren/Erwin/Levi (with the funniest line of dialogue you will ever see attributed to Erwin, I promise you), and, last but not least, Ymir/Christa. Poor Armin. Lucky us. 1,726 words.

anonymous — untitled
Armin sneaks into Eren's dungeon quarters after the trial and, after a joyful reunion hug, shamefacedly asks him to fuck him. Unsurprisingly for a couple of virginal teenagers, both of them are terrible at sex. Hilariously terrible. Sex in their case is a series of painful mishaps that culminates in them getting stuck together and yelling at one another. Which Levi overhears and decides to investigate. And then it gets even funnier (and more embarrassing for our boys). 3,265 words.

Variabile — "Get It Done"
On a rainy night toward the end of training, Jean and Eren are sharing a small field tent. Eren can't sleep because he has a boner. Asking Jean to go take a walk doesn't go over well. Jean, not knowing what the problem is, offers to help because Eren's his fellow trainee and you don't let your fellow trainee down (so to speak). And it's aawwwwkwaaaard.
     The POV switches back and forth, they're both completely in character, and their dialogue and thoughts are screamingly funny: Jean really, really, doesn't want Eren to cry, because if Eren starts crying then there's a more than zero chance that Jean will start crying too (he's just built like that, alright, he's sensitive and his mum says that's okay so fuck you) and that, that would be the worst, like, the only way to save themselves from the embarrassment of that situation would be a suicide pact. Oh, and there's some hotness, too. 5,729 words.

saekimchi — "Soggy Biscuit"
If you don't know what the title refers to, Wikipedia is your friend (or maybe it isn't). Eren, Jean, Connie, Reiner, and Bertholdt are the ones playing the game. Trust me, the ending is not going to be quite what you think it is. I LOL'ed all the way through, beginning to end. 1,483 words.
island_of_reil: (cruel ... and beautiful)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
Again, all of these are sexually explicit.

Ai Enmaxjigoku shoujo — "There's A First For Everything," Chapter 6
This is actually a collection of kinkmeme fills, one fill per chapter. In this one, Armin and Jean have desperate, panicky, and painfully hot "Oh, my god, I thought you'd been killed!" sex after a mission (presumably the 57th Expedition) goes wrong. Armin's badly bruised, and Jean's trying to be as gentle as he can, not always succeeding. ~1,780 words.

Raevell — "Running Water over Open Wounds"
Established-relationship Eremin; shower sex with emotional h/c. At the Survey Corps' remote rural hideout, Armin is soothing his aching muscles and troubled mind with a hot shower after everyone else has gone to bed. Well, almost everyone: Eren steps in. In this fic, Eren tops and is dominant, but after sex it's Armin who's comforting him. Really lovely, in writing and in atmosphere. 2,731 words.

anonymous — "Undertow"
Reiner and Bertholdt double-penetrate Armin. It's very tender and caring — They've been building up to this for weeks, and both Reiner and Bertholdt are anxious to make sure that Armin is okay with every single thing they do — and brain-meltingly hot. 2,800 words.

trashcan - "trusted"
Second-person POV for Reiner; set right after the 57th Expedition. Reiner is torn between the soldier's guilt of knowing that his squadmates still trust him and the warrior's guilt of not having killed them himself — and he craves comfort from them, too. Against his better judgment, he offers comfort to both Jean and Armin, who are both badly shaken (as well as Armin having been injured)... and it segues into a scorchingly tender threesome, with an unsettling, heartbreaking note of angst at the very end. 2,594 words.

stereobone - "Knickpoint"
Stereobone is one of those writers who can say volumes in the barest minimum of words. They write some of the fandom's best Eruri, and this one is their most moving IMO. Despite years of UST, Erwin and Levi have never become romantically involved. Now Erwin has lost his right arm, and he's dealing with it well enough. Levi, not so much; the ramifications of that loss keep hitting him squarely in the heart. The resolution of the UST hit me the same way while still being quite hot. 3,017 words.

phollie (larouille) — "honestly"
Deeply emotional first-time Armin/Eren, in the shower again but during training. The language is gorgeous and rich without ever shading to purple. Even the tiniest interactions are packed with movements and glances and breaths and sensations and feelings, bringing out the nuances of their characters, slowing things down so that I felt less as though I were reading fic about them than watching them act out the narrative. It's also the rare fic that features Armin topping or domming Eren, and comforting him in the face of Eren's insecurities, rather than vice versa — and in a way that doesn't downplay Armin's inexperience and nervousness. Oh, and there are some funny bits, too, with the other boys of the 104th toward the end. 12,056 words.

synergenic (Losseflame) - "Give and Take" series
Jean/Eren, set during training. One tag is "dumb teenage boys in love who are learning how to do the communicate," and it's true — and it's much hotter than you'd think. As various commenters have said, the atmosphere of intimacy is intense and atmospheric, embracing fear and anger as well as sweetness and love. Combined with how absolutely filthy Jean and Eren are in bed, it makes for some devastatingly hot porn. Both fics feature mild D/s with a hint of it becoming more explicit in the future (and I truly hope Synergenic ends up writing it).
  • "Twice Shy" (3,333 words) This fic gets serious when, while making out with Eren, Jean learns that Eren's never had his ass played with before. Eren is insecure as hell about his own attractiveness and dealing with more than a little sexual shame. This fic is packed with hot lines, but Jean's implicit Don’t be ashamed with me is one of the hottest.

  • "Knock on Wood" (2,417 words) We learn one reason Eren's so afraid to become intimate with Jean. Learning it hurts. But it hurts good. And it makes sense. Eren's fucking Jean here, and the dominance shifts back and forth between them in a totally believable (and HNNNNNGGGGHHH) kind of way.
island_of_reil: (cruel ... and beautiful)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
All of these are explicit.

anonymous - "filled" on SNK Kink
Eren gets off on Annie beating him up in public. The writing is beautiful, and the author captures Annie's voice well.

Zee - "Black Me Out" on AO3
They didn't manage to rescue Eren from the female titan. Mikasa, sleep-deprived and furious at Levi, picks a brutal fight with him that involves (among other things) him choking her with her scarf. It turns into... something else. Excellent characterization for both of them (and Armin too), and the fight is well choreographed.

Vee - "Lay Down" on AO3
Extremely dark power dynamics: Levi is more or less Erwin's possession. Bondage, beating, orgasm denial.

J_deandra_j - "Dawk's Suicide List" on AO3
Noncon, Nile Dawk/Levi and Hitch/Levi. Description cut for possible triggers. ) Brutal and well-written; Levi's voice is perfect here.

Nonnamous - "Never Stray and Never Falter" on AO3
Reiner/Eren, with background Ymir/Historia; canon divergence for Chapters 42-50. Reiner and Bertholdt chop off Eren's limbs to keep him from trying to kill them. Before they've grown fully back, Reiner and Eren end up having (consensual) sex. Gorgeous writing, amazing characterization (especially for Eren, wow), searingly hot porn, a funny line here and there, and an ending that is both horrific and heartbreaking.

Week 4 here from sparksofwrite, who really ought to get back to the 5 kinkmeme fills she has only half-finished, whoops. 

1) TITLE: Now and Then 
AUTHOR: naomin at AO3 
SUMMARY:
 Jean hates gentle sex. It's not really a problem until he starts sleeping with Eren. (Repost from the snkkink community on Dreamwidth.)
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Jean/Eren, past Jean/Marco
STATUS: complete, 6985 words
COMMENTS: The way this fic is written in sections (years ago, later, even later to name the first few) is appealing to me (if I'm honest, it's because it reminds me of my preferred writing style). It gives us a look at how Marco's death could affect Jean's relationships in the future, and while Jean misses Marco, he doesn't pine over him. This is refreshing. A good fic for both Jean/Marco and Jean/Eren shippers. 

2) 
TITLE: Necessities 
AUTHOR: Nonnamous at AO3
SUMMARY: Erwin will take his opportunities where he can get them.
Based off a kink meme prompt.
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Erwin/Eren
STATUS: complete, 3496 words
COMMENTS: I read this and enjoyed it when it was first posted on the kinkmeme. So I was pleased when I went to check out this author (per an anon's suggestion) and found that they were the A!A. This fic does involve dubcon, so be aware of that before reading. 


3) TITLE: slow down, grab the wall

AUTHOR: Nakimochiku at AO3
SUMMARYIf Eren hadn't saved Mikasa, and Erwin hadn't captured Levi, perhaps they would have met in the criminal underworld?
RATING: Mature
SHIPS: Levi/Mikasa
STATUS: complete, 985 words
COMMENTS: Okay but can we please talk about this fic? The concept is interesting, the characterization is great, and it's freaking hot despite having literally no smut at all? Can we please talk about it? Because this fic is glorious. Also, I think I read this author's work way back when I was into Hetalia and browsed FFN regularly. Glad to see they've gotten into SNK as well. 

4) TITLE: Attitude 

AUTHOR: ymirkrista at AO3
SUMMARY: Ymir was not exactly how she would have pictured a ballet instructor, but life is full of subverted expectations.
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Ymir/Historia
STATUS: complete, 8254 words
COMMENTS: THIS FIC THOUGH. I cannot. A+ 10/10 would read again. And again. Fluffy Ymir/Historia with gay ballerinas doing gay ballerina things? It makes me miss dancing, but I never found any lesbians when I used to dance. (Where was I going with this?) Read for precious gay girls, ballet shenanigans, and Ymir's road rage. 

5) 
TITLE: and it makes her but it breaks her
AUTHOR: prefacing at AO3
SUMMARY: A series of vignettes following Marco and Annie, culminating with the two of them swapping gear when Annie's malfunctions during Trost.
RATING: General
SHIPS: slight Marco/Annie
STATUS: complete, 1579
COMMENTS: I understand Marco/Annie isn't exactly a huge ship, but why doesn't this fic get more attention? They aren't even really shipped together here. Very nice, and perfect if you're looking for a short oneshot featuring a surprisingly cute rarepair.

Sorry to post a little late; every time I sat down to write the post I kept getting called away to do things. Week 3 here by sparksofwrite! (Remember you can always message me on tumblr if you know of a fic I should be reading! I spend more time writing fic than I do reading it, so any recs from you will help me out!)

1) TITLE:
always
AUTHOR: songs at FFN
SUMMARY: 
Let me come with you.  
RATING: 
General
SHIPS: 
Eren/Mikasa
STATUS: 
complete, 752 words
COMMENTS:
 This is a short Eremika fic I found on FFN by searching for the most-reviewed fics in the SNK section. I found a fic by this author called andromeda in a thimble, which I will probably read in its entirety eventually, and will most likely rec here. What I’ve read of it has been very good, and this semi-related fic is no exception.

2) TITLE: Wolves of the North  
AUTHOR: ShinjiShazaki at AO3
SUMMARY: 
Christa Renz had long hoped to be of some use to her kingdom, her king. She had worked diligently to this end for years, and was surprised when something seemed to come of it and she was summoned by King Reiss. She was not expecting to be asked to deliver a letter.
She was not expecting to be asked to deliver a letter to the wolf queen of the north.
She will expect what the letter says even less.

RATING: 
Mature
SHIPS: 
Ymir/Christa, Mikasa/Annie
STATUS: 
incomplete, 84177 words
COMMENTS:
 This is my favorite fic in the entire fandom. I was initially skeptical of the AU (“Werewolves? How is the author going to pull off werewolves?”), but that’s only because I hadn’t read anything else by this author. At this point, I’ve read every word they’ve written for SNK, and have total faith in their abilities to write any AU they please, and write it very well. A really worthwhile read.

3) TITLE: A Multitude of Drops
AUTHOR: till_owlyglass at AO3
SUMMARY: 
Ever since the beginning of time, Marco Bodt and Jean Kirschstein have been doomed soulmates - in every reality out there, either Jean or Marco meets an untimely death or they were unable to meet/know one another and live their whole lives knowing something (someone) is missing. They are eternally star-crossed in all realities.
Except one.

RATING: 
Teen & up
SHIPS: 
Jean/Marco
STATUS: 
complete, 4421 words
COMMENTS:
 Reincarnations/alternate universes? Angst and romance? A happy ending for Jean and Marco?! Sounds perfect. (Seriously, read this fic, especially if you like the Jean/Marco ship.)

4) TITLE: But I’m a Cheerleader
AUTHOR: 
ymirkrista at AO3
SUMMARY: 
“There’s meat in here,” Krista says. Her voice sounds stale, very much like the voice of a girl who found out ten minutes ago that the world is an illusion and we’re all going to die eventually.
Ymir’s eyes sparkle. “I bet there are other things you’d like to be eating, huh?”
--
Or, Krista is a very heterosexual cheerleader whose parents send her to a gay conversion camp, and Ymir is another camper who shows her why exactly she's there. A "But I'm A Cheerleader" AU

RATING: 
Teen & up
SHIPS: 
Ymir/Christa, background Mikasa/Sasha, eventual Jean/Eren, eventual Hange/Petra
STATUS: 
incomplete, 5640 words
COMMENTS:
 I’ve never seen the movie this fic is based on, so I’m curious as to how similar the characters are to Ymir, Christa and the rest of the group. I’m in love with the author’s writing style, which is consistently funny and always keeps things interesting. This is why I’ve stuck with this fic even though it hasn’t updated for a while. Even the short length isn’t a problem, because it’s such an enjoyable read regardless.

5) TITLE: This Feeling I’ll Forget
AUTHOR: thefangirlingdead at AO3
SUMMARY: 
Levi suffers from short term memory loss, and while that makes it hard for him to find love, he finds Erwin.  
RATING: 
Mature
SHIPS: 
Levi/Erwin
STATUS: 
complete, 5501 words
COMMENTS:
For a fic about how forgetting your partner affects your relationship, this is really fluffy and adorable. There is a bit of angst, but not so much that it’s depressing for anyone who just wants a cute Erwin/Levi AU.

Title: Hanji’s Field Journal: Calculating Rebound Rate of Currency on the Surface of Commander Smith’s Gluteal Muscles (With Annotations by Captain Levi)
Creator: [personal profile] meicdon13
Pairings/Characters: Hanji Zoe, Levi, Moblit Berner, Mike Zacharius, Erwin Smith, the Scouting Legion
Rating: PG
Summary: Hanji attempts to scientifically quantify just how firm Erwin’s butt is.
A/N: I may or may not have a thing for butts. Booties. Badonkadonks. Also, why are non-gendered pronouns not a thing in English this is so frustrating.

 FANFIC RECS by sparksofwriteEvery week, I'll be posting 5 fanfics that I personally believe are some of the best that I've read in the SNK fandom. 
 
1) TITLE: flowers in her hair
AUTHOR: traineecorps at AO3
SUMMARY: she just leaves and never looks back. 
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Annie/Bertholdt
STATUS: complete, 905 words
COMMENTS: I don't read a lot of het fics, much less Annie/Bertholdt, but this one was sweet and sad. 
 
2) TITLE: maybe it's the heat in here
AUTHOR: ifnotwinter at AO3
SUMMARY: "I'm not gay," Jean tells him.
"Your dick was in my ass," Eren points out. "You're a little gay."
Or how Eren and Jean are definitely, completely, totally virgins, copious amounts of ridiculous sex with each other notwithstanding.
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Jean/Eren
STATUS: complete, 3726 words
COMMENTS: Originally a kinkmeme fill, this fic is essentially literal gold for anyone looking for some cracky Jean/Eren smut. 
 
3) TITLE: girl, i've never loved one like you
AUTHOR: silversnaffle at AO3
SUMMARY: Ymir and Historia meet while running cross-country.
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Ymir/Historia
STATUS: complete, 695 words
COMMENTS: Ymir/Historia is my personal OTP, but I think I'd like this fic even if it wasn't. Perfect for someone looking for a sweet, short oneshot. 
 
4) TITLE: Spit on a Stranger 
AUTHOR: Steve at AO3
SUMMARY: Levi finds a hostile, freckly teenage lesbian on the street. Naturally, he takes her home with him. “Jeez. And the award for Surliest New Family goes to...”
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Hange/Levi/Erwin, (eventual) Ymir/Historia
STATUS: incomplete, 3969 words so far
COMMENTS: The good news: This fic has a ton of potential! The bad news: It hasn't been updated since the first chapter was posted in December. But it was too good not to recommend, so here it is. Not a lot of shipping yet beyond what is implied and what is indicated in the tags.
 
5) TITLE: The Creator and the Master
AUTHOR: Island_of_Reil at AO3
SUMMARY: When a pawn becomes queen, things may not end well for the one who put her in play.
RATING: Mature
SHIPS: Gen, but implied Ymir/Historia
STATUS: complete, 2347 words
COMMENTS: Unlike anything I've read before, this fic focuses on the idea that Levi and Historia's roles will eventually be reversed, with Historia coming to power. After chapter 56, I've seen a few people talking about this concept, and I was very glad to see someone write it. One of my personal favorites on this list.
