anonymous — untitled (T)
Reiner and Eren, annoyed at Jean for having started yet another brawl, get back at him by tying him to his bedposts with his Gear straps just before dinner, then leaving him there. Marco wanders in and finds him, and unties him… or at least he starts to.
Marco hummed thoughtfully before his hands reached forward to what seemed to the first knot to untie. When his hand brushed against Jean’s stomach Jean jerked away with a yelp. Marco blinked.

“Jean, are you ticklish?”

“Of course not!” There was a pink blush across the usually cocky face, and the way Jean’s eyes darted around nervously was so uncharacteristic of him that Marco couldn’t stop smiling.

“Hey, it’s fine, being ticklish isn’t a weakness. Many people are, I’m just curious where your most ticklish spot is.”
As one of the commenters says, it’s quite hot given how indirect it is. Also, the ending’s funny. 1,069 words.

ragnarokstar — “Open Arms” (E)
Marco watches Jean fuck himself with a dildo and praises him.
Jean bites his lip. He’s getting frustrated. Marco doesn’t necessarily enjoy tormenting his boyfriend, but, god, this. This is something else. Marco knows that when Jean gets close, his brain gets too confused to keep it up as hard and fast as he needs to come, keeping him on a frustrating plateau. He wants to see that. And Jean wants to show him.
982 words.

anonymous — “Your Turn” (E)
Marco survived Trost and now holds down a desk job. When Jean is off on a mission, the two of them write each other erotic letters.
excerpt )
997 words.

100demons — “(you + me) - everyone else =” (E)
Jean isn’t paying attention in class. He’s watching Marco chew on his lower lip and imagining his mouth elsewhere. Much later, in the shower, he decides to relieve the tension… and that’s when Marco realizes he’s left his soap in the same stall. After the initial “oops” moment, Jean blurts out, “You’re welcome to stay,” and doesn’t expect Marco to take him up on it — but he does.
excerpt )
1,605 words.

yukine — “What It Almost Was” (E)
Sex in a barn. It was release. It was just release, for both of them. Anything other than that simple sentiment would complicate things. But it was dangerously close to more than that, for it being nothing. 5,874 words.

anonymous — “lecture time” (E)
Marco lectures Jean about picking fights; Jean distracts him with sex. Marco is wonderfully dominant.
excerpt )
1,877 words.

flecksofpoppy — “Palmistry” (M)
Marco is fascinated with Jean’s hands: first, because they’re softer than his; then, because they harden. He’s traded in the softness of Trost for the stealthiness of survival, and there’s something so compelling and clever about his fingers now, that Marco just can’t resist after a while. So he offers to read Jean’s palm one afternoon. The whole thing (780 words) is just brain-sizzlingly hot, especially for a mature-rated fic — and once you’ve read it, check out the very lovely fanart that a Tumblr artist drew of the final scene.

anonymous — “Help, I’m Alive” (E)
Marco survived Trost, scarred and disabled. Jean, who loves him, takes care of him.
excerpt )
Hot and moving. 2,838 words.

khepria — "Outsider" (Teen and up)
A short (813-word) fic set after Chapter 50. Annie's out of her crystal and in chains with her limbs severed and regenerating. Armin, on the other side of the bars, asks her questions. Annie's hardly at her best, but she fucks quite capably with his head.

anonymous — "Breaking Point" (Mature, for violence)
Armin drives off his bullies by making a blood pact with the powers of darkness, who grant him a large protector named Berholdt. Mikasa is alarmed; Armin reassures her that he's given the demons no more than one drop of blood, so that he'll have just enough power to protect himself. But then Shinganshina falls, and there's so much more threatening him and his friends — including the temptation to fall deeper and deeper into evil. WIP, up to part four. 3,776 words to date.

anonymous — "Kinsman" (Teen and up)
Written immediately after Chapter 56. Levi confronts Captain Ackerman while trying to rescue Eren and Historia — and loses his characteristic sangfroid. WIP (though likely to go unfinished due to jossing); 782 words.

anonymous — "Monster" (Mature, for violence)
In which Jean takes Annie's place as the titan in the Forest of Giant Trees and at Stohess. The brilliance of this fic is how the author takes Jean's canon traits and lines of dialogue and fits them perfectly into a villain role. WIP, 3,878 words to date, with the last of three parts to come.

anonymous — "Preventative Medicine" (General audiences)
When Carla contracts plague, Grisha desperately experiments with titan cells — and ends up vaccinating everybody in Shinganshina. As it turns out, the vaccine has side effects… 1,649 words so far (author may or may not continue it eventually).

anonymous — "Where the Heart Is" (Mature, for violence)
Eren fails to save Mikasa from the kidnappers, who kill him. She's being taken into the city when her captors run afoul of Levi, pre-Survey Corps. He and a few of his associates take her in. 1,988 words; never finished but still worth reading.

daikonjou — "clad in black, weeping Eve" (General audiences, shading into Teen and up)
Ten years later, Jean still carries Marco's bone in his pocket. And Marco's ghost stays with him. A well-written fic full of gut punches; the ninth-year anecdote in particular got me hard in the feels. 5,032 words.

Kyogre — "Mother of All Hangovers" (Teen and up — link updated from SnK Kink to AO3 version)
After graduating from training, the 104th get very drunk. And the last anyone sees of the Shinganshina Trio, they are in full 3DMG, and are hurtling themselves off Wall Rose, screaming something about seeing the world. They come back a week later. There are people outside the Walls, Armin concludes blankly. And these people apparently supplied them with clothing, miscellaneous travel items and a whole lot of booze — the empty bottles Eren retrieves pile up. Then it gets even better. 5,298 words.

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.

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.

1) TITLE: tower, tower
AUTHOR: swapcats at AO3
SUMMARY:
Ymir fights dirty. 
RATING:
Teen & up
SHIPS:
Ymir/Historia
STATUS:
complete, 4340 words
COMMENTS:
Let me tell you something- I don't cry when I read things. Unless the thing is a fanfic called 'tower, tower.' Then I cry like a baby. It helps that it's about my OTP, but this fic, with its abundance of wham lines and interesting characterization, is one of my favorite fics I've read in this fandom. 

2) TITLE: As Much As I Ever Could
AUTHOR: shingekinoboyfriends at AO3
SUMMARY:
 It's Jean's first year at Trost University and, through unfortunate circumstances involving Marco picking up a nude modeling job for the school's figure drawing class, Jean comes face-to-face with Marco Bodt's... extraordinary personality. But Jean's not gay. He swears. 
RATING:
Mature
SHIPS:
Jean/Marco, background Reiner/Bertholdt, background Connie/Sasha
STATUS:
ongoing, 136552 words
COMMENTS:
This is the fic that got me into the Jean/Marco ship. Good chapter length and frequent updates, as well as a good mix between funny and angsty. A really great fic, even if you're not into slash- I know I wasn't as open to it before reading this. 

3) TITLE: thieves in the night
AUTHOR: ShinjiShazaki at AO3 
SUMMARY: Of all the things in the world to expect, waking up one fall night to find a burglar in her apartment was the last thing on Annie Leonhardt's mind. In the aftermath of the break-in and subsequent assault, there are many more things that she comes across unexpectedly. 
RATING: Mature
SHIPS: Mikasa/Annie, background Ymir/Christa
STATUS: ongoing, 43492 words
COMMENTS:
While this fic is ongoing, the next chapter will be the last. It's still a worthwhile read, especially for anyone interested in modern!AUs that do not have to do with college or high school. 

4) TITLE: Aromatherapy 
AUTHOR: Chellodello at AO3
SUMMARY: Levi falls head-over-heels in love with a boy he sells overpriced candles to. 
Or;
Eren just wanted his house to smell nice, honestly.
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Levi/Eren, Jean/Marco
STATUS: ongoing, 8900 words
COMMENTS: The world needs more Bath & Body Works AUs. This fic is good enough that I've enjoyed it, even though Levi/Eren isn't always my thing. 

5) TITLE: I Can Feel You Whet My Appetite
AUTHOR: tokiNOOO at AO3
SUMMARY: "Hm? Oh. I'm going into heat soon," Sasha said, as easily as if she'd told Jean he had a leaf in his hair. "It was supposed to start yesterday but sometimes it's a bit irregular." 
"Sasha!" he spluttered, tripping over a root. 
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Jean/Sasha
STATUS: complete, 2684 words 
COMMENTS: I'm not into A/B/O fics, but I happened to read this one on the kinkmeme and wound up enjoying it. Jean/Sasha is a surprisingly cute ship. The author seems to write a lot of fics involving mating cycles, so I'll probably check them out eventually.
