island_of_reil: (cruel ... and beautiful)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
Since the comm’s been revived, I thought I’d try to start putting up regular rec posts again. I’ve never done one for Jean/Armin, and I think it’s time, given the increased emphasis in canon on their relationship. Other than “Antiseptic” and “Speechless,” which are rated teen and up, all of these fics are sexually explicit.

anonymous — “Antiseptic”
A short kinkmeme fill in which Armin notices how attractive Jean is while he cleans his wounds for him. No continuation.
Jean’s body is, well, attractive. There’s definition in all the right places, yet a wiry aspect that sends Armin somewhere else for a moment, committing to memory every line, every detail, the smoothness of his stomach down to the thin trail of hair that leads into places Armin had never really thought about until this second.
926 words.

anonymous — “hold yer horses”
Armin and Jean, who are in an established relationship, are on stable duty during mating season. Armin gets turned on by watching a stallion mount a mare. He has to convince Jean that his new fetish has nothing to do with Jean’s face. Both hot and funny. Jean POV. 1,519 words.

anonymous — “misappropriated military equipment”
They’re 19, they’ve both been promoted, they’re in a relationship, and they’re into kink. A military-issue riding crop is involved.
(“You’re misappropriating military equipment, Commander,” Jean had joked. Armin had just looked at him and said, deathly serious, “Would you like me to gag you as well, squad leader Kirschstein?”)
1,881 words.

alienchrist — “Compromises, Compromised”
Futurefic. Jean’s an MP. Armin turns up out of nowhere after three years. There are lies, betrayal, and the remnants of the Survey Corps plotting against the monarchy. A wonderfully bittersweet ending. 6,598 words.

zury (azurezury) — “To the Wall”
Armin is commanding the MPs, Jean the Survey Corps. Armin’s taller — and dominant.
Excerpt )
Rimming, wall sex. 1,628 words.

anonymous — “Beautiful”
After sex, Jean can’t keep from looking at Armin leaking his come, or from lapping it up, despite Armin’s embarrassment. 811 words.

ragnwn — “Feed Me”
Modern laboratory AU with sex pollen.
Armin strokes the flower with his pointer finger, angling it into the light, and snaps a few photos. He gazes at the stamen. What would it feel like, if he brushed against it? What would it taste like? The way it’s sitting there, presenting its sex so patiently, it’s just begging to be touched…
3,017 words.

anonymous — “Speechless”
Jean and Armin are the last of the 104th. As commander, Jean has to send Armin off on a mission that almost certainly will kill him. Armin’s OK with it. Jean, not so much.
“Seems like forever since we’ve just... had a moment,” Armin says. It’s a tranquil dawn—no approaching ground-shaking footsteps, no abrupt traumatizing deaths. The squads behind them rustle quietly, clinks and determined murmurs of soldiers checking straps and gas levels as they prepare for their final mission.

Jean opens his mouth and finds he can’t answer.
Heartbreaking. 824 words.

[personal profile] island_of_reil
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.
island_of_reil: (cruel ... and beautiful)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
sassanids (albion) — “Loathing” (E)
Jean fantasizes while jerking off about Eren forcing himself on him.
Excerpt )
548 words.

anonymous — “Wide Awake” (M)
Jean could almost, almost get to sleep like this, he thinks. At least, he could if someone hadn’t decided that right now would be the perfect moment to start making noise. That someone making noise in his own bunk is, of course, Eren. Jean gets up to teach him a lesson. It… doesn’t go quite as he planned. 1,082 words.

Greenflares — “A Comfortable Fit” (T, shading toward M)
Jean and Eren have a no-strings-attached relationship, but it’s getting more serious on Jean’s part: Even the sparse freckles that ran over his back were enough to bring out the bubbly feeling in Jean’s chest where once only lust had resided. It felt as though Eren had somehow weaselled his way under his skin, beneath his ribs, and had broken something in him. Which leads him to sneak into Eren’s room and Eren’s tiny bed just to curl up with him, no sex, at three in the morning. Very sweet and real, and kind of hot, too, despite the rating. 1,708 words.

Nakimochiku — “Quick and Dirty” (E)
530 words of Jean fucking Eren against the wall of a shed. Rough, filthy-talking, bloody, animalistic sex.
“Hurts so good.” Eren moans, back arching, nails scraping hard against the wall. “Don’t stop, don’t stop, keep—” Jean picks up the pace, wants him to stop talking, wants him to forget his name, his breath, his reason for living.
(Warning: blood.)

anonymous — “on top of his game” (E)
Jean thinks he’s going to top Eren from the bottom. Like a lot of Jean’s ideas, it had worked a lot better in theory than in execution. And also like a lot of Jean’s ideas, it ended with Jean getting the short side of the stick. Jean does end up enjoying himself, I’d say, but his dignity takes a hit. 1,360 words.

tanyart — “stand down” (E)
Jean likes to fight, then surrender. Including in the middle of a (deserted) hallway.
With his arm still holding Jean against the wall, Eren presses his free hand over the front of Jean’s pants, deliberately rough. He does nothing to pin down Jean’s wrists, and Eren knows Jean can push him off anytime he wants, fight him off or say something–but he doesn’t. Jean’s hands are braced against the wall, nails scraping over wood as he gives a ragged gasp and juts up against Eren’s palm.
There are humorous bits, too. 2,187 words.

lonelyantics — “Off Track” (T)
Canon divergence written last November, set two years after the 57th Expedition. They’re passing through the Forest of Giant Trees when it happens. “It” refers to an encounter with a titan, a broken leg, bickering over would-be heroics and emergency bone-setting, and… well, as Eren says, Jean having the world’s worst timing. 3,187 words.

Variabile — “Go the Fuck to Sleep” (E)
Shadis subscribes to the widespread belief that sleeping next to someone makes you get along with them better. So, after Jean and Eren have fought yet again, their commander orders them to share a bunk, much to the amusement of their barracks-mates. They divide the space up with a Gear strap down the middle. Yet, somehow, after an unusually pleasant dream about Jean, Eren wakes up on Jean’s side of “Belt Sina.” In Jean’s arms, with his face in Jean's neck and his leg thrown over Jean’s hips. And Jean seems to be having a very similar dream… 3,282 words.

[Update: "Days are Gone" by seasideimprovisation is no longer on AO3.]

corbaccio — “Benediction” (E)
Futurefic in which Armin is commander’s aide and Eren a squad leader. Laden with work and frequently in Sina, Armin doesn’t get to see Eren often enough. So when he’s back at HQ after two weeks away, Eren comes to his rooms… and makes slow, intense, worshipful love to him.
Distance or time spent apart had never upset their relationship. Eren still found relief in that: he feared change in spite of its inevitability, as sure as the shifting tides that Armin still spoke of, simply because constants were so rare in his life. Armin was one of the few. The way he felt and fit around him was, thankfully, the same as always. Eren could imagine the curve of his waist, the dust-soft skin at the small of his back, but nothing could ever compare to the real thing right in front of him. The longing he’d tamped down for the past two weeks came back in a rush—the urge to shell Armin out of his shirt, to remind himself of every quirk and angle and sensitive spot of his body, was near overwhelming.
Searingly hot smut, with the fond familiarity of a long-term relationship. And, in this fic, Armin’s hair is long. :) 4,024 words.

anonymous — “you don’t know what you like” (E)
Not the first time for them, but the first time with any privacy beyond what they get in a shared bunk in the wee hours of the morning.
...“There’s nothing to do in the storage sheds.”

“Not even me?” Armin had said, turning to give Eren his very best wide-eyed, butter-wouldn’t-melt-in-my-mouth, I-didn’t-start-the-fire look.

Eren had paused, eyes wavering.

“Oh,” he’d said, “Oh.”
And then Armin is a total power bottom. XD 996 words.

Homicidal Whispers — “A Whisper, A Roar” (E)
Visitation Day is exactly what it sounds like. … It’s a joyous day for everyone except Mikasa, Armin, and Eren. Mikasa goes off to take out her sorrow and anger on a punching bag. And Eren and Armin — even though “they’re not really dating” — have some fun under a tree, despite the risk of being seen.
     Also, Jean is a homophobic jerk whom everybody else puts in his place. Eren does it with the most panache:
Defiantly, Eren lifts a strawberry from his plate. Fresh fruit like this is a luxury they’re rarely afforded and each student is only allowed two. He holds it to Armin’s mouth. Armin knows what Eren is trying to do; he’s making a statement. His eyes hold Eren’s as he opens up and allows Eren to feed the fruit in. When he bites down, sticky pink juice drips over his hand. Eren waits for Armin to take the last bite of the fruit before bringing his hand to his own mouth and lapping up the juice there.

Eren takes a moment to look around the room. “Anyone else have a problem?”
4,849 words.

phollie (larouille) — “shrinking violets” (E)
When they’re seven, [t]hey meet on a summer’s day where the heat hangs like honey and the sky looms with a threat of a storm. They haven’t been acquainted for more than an hour before Eren wants to marry Armin, and Armin thinks maybe they can do that someday when they’re older. Eren leans in and plants a rough kiss to Armin’s cheek, like the sealing of a promise, a pact.
     The author takes us through five more kisses between Eren and Armin: Innocent, happy childhood pecking. Still-mostly innocent kissing in the reclamation camp after they’ve quarreled. A sudden shift in the atmosphere between them when they’re fourteen and in training, and their fears of how it could change their friendship. A fiery makeout session in Eren’s dungeon bedroom under the courthouse (with an amusing cameo by Levi, who’s surprisingly sympathetic in his inimitable way). And then, after the 57th Expedition, a hurt/comfort–laced consummation of all that’s gone before. 9,646 words.

anonymous — “Let the Awkward Abound!” (M)
The title sounds cracky; the fic is anything but. It had been the two of them forever, or so it felt to Armin. And then Mikasa comes along, and it’s the three of them. Then come the years in the reclamation camp, hope and love blooming amid grief and privation. Training, with more opportunities for companionship — and jealousy. And, finally, Armin tending to Eren in the first-aid room after the sparring match with Annie:
He sees what he wants. I see what is there. All he saw right now, all he could feel, was Eren, his warmth and the tension running through both their bodies. All his senses were filled with Eren, his scent, earthy under the sharp smell of sweat, his breath, the pulse beating through his body, the salt of his skin a memory on Armin’s tongue. Right now, Eren was the whole world, and he didn’t want it to end.
3,191 words.

Raevell — “Campfires and Tents” (E)
He’s completely exhausted and sore after the 104th goes on a summer endurance hike into the woods, and Shadis screams at him while he lies inert on the ground. But Armin still manages to find himself entranced by Eren’s fire-lit smile, and warmed by Eren’s encouraging words in the privacy of their tent. When he wakes up in the middle of the night with Eren (and Eren’s sleep erection) pressed against him, he realizes he won’t be able to go back to sleep unless…
Turning his head again, he glanced at Eren, felt him still breathing against him, arm around him, and he felt struck with guilt at how the image and the situation provoked him. That guilt became a physical pain in his gut when he acknowledged what he was now considering. Was he really going to do this? Touch himself with Eren’s body flush against his?
Of course he is. 4,960 words.

sodas — “a moment on the moon” (G)
This postcanon fic is labeled gen but can be read as very tame Eremin. Both of them survive to see the outside world, but “see" is only figurative on Armin’s part, as he’s lost his sight. Eren, leading him out into the newly conquered wilderness, describes it to him while watching over him.
"There are all these purple flowers around us,” Eren says into Armin’s hair. The wind keeps blowing it into his face. "They group on really long stems. They’re like... columns. Big leaves, too."

Armin smiles off to the left and fingers a bit of the horse’s mane. “They might be larkspur,” he says. “When we get back, you should tell someone they’re here. I think larkspur’s toxic.”

“No one’s gonna be eating any flowers,” Eren says, a little incredulous. He can, admittedly, picture Sasha with a bouquet between her teeth, and Jean with a daisy sticking out of his mouth.

“Kids, though,” Armin chides, face turned forward. His chin is tilted up and Eren imagines that the sunlight is spread over his mouth and the bridge of his nose. Lucky sun.
Armin, consumed as always by his hunger for knowledge, seems to accept his own blindness better than Eren does. A sweet, hopeful fic, despite the note of angst. 1,067 words.
island_of_reil: (levi)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
Other than the untitled fic (cigarette smoking), which is more or less teen and up, and "The Strength of Your Shoulders," which is for general audiences, all of these fics are sexually explicit.

anonymous — untitled
Eren, out after curfew, follows Levi to a seedy Underground bar. Levi is smoking as well as drinking, and Eren finds the sight of Levi sucking on a cigarette, no pun intended, hot. The fill was never continued beyond part 1, but what's there is intensely noir-atmospheric without being trite, and there is some delicious UST. 1,373 words.

grayangel — "This Is Pure Porn (Really It's Just Porn)"
1st-person Eren POV. I think this can aptly be described with the sentence WELCOME TO OUR YAOI DUNGEON.
Excerpt )
1,575 words.

Sereethemere — "Tryst"
965-word PWP of Levi fucking Eren stupid. A few sentences ) Orgasm denial, forced begging, biting.

joouheika — "Congruity"
An erotic reworking of the "Do you resent me?" scene, with Levi realizing that he enjoyed the courtroom scene rather more than he'd expected.
Levi snares his other hand in Eren’s hair, one hand digging his blunt cleanly trimmed nails into the boy’s scalp while the other pulls so hard back Eren’s head snaps back, his sharp moan so loud Levi is sure if there’s anyone in the room over or the hall they fucking heard it.
Blowjob, with hairpulling that ends up being more severe than Levi intended. Amusing ending. 2,129 words.

foreverautumn — "the mess we're in"
2,000-word first-time PWP of Levi sitting in Eren's lap and riding him. Both awkward and steaming-hot.
Excerpt )
anonymous — "don't make a scene"
Whenever Levi watches Eren eat in his dungeon cell, Eren makes a show of displaying his throat as he swallows and sucking his fingers clean. He’s no sadist, but there’s something smugly satisfying about getting Rivaille so riled up like this. He didn't think his commanding officer would do what now? ) Freaking hot. 2,863 words.

milleandra — "Serenade"
2nd-person Eren POV; consensual voyeurism/masturbation. 1,121 words.
Levi puts the cloth away in the bowl and pushes the shirt away from his arms, arching his back as the material slides down, revealing the expanse of pale skin. You hold your breath, staring at the muscles flexing under his skin, your mouth watering, the urge to lick him, clean him even stronger than before. You wonder if he’s teasing you, but the fleeting look on his face tells you nothing. His expression remains unaffected by your presence, almost like you’re really not there and he’s in the room alone, washing his body before going to sleep. He takes the cloth again to move it along his arms, down his sides, across his chest. You can’t take your eyes away from the droplets staying on his body, the warm temperature of summer evening making them quickly disappear.
Nakimochiku — "The Strength of Your Shoulders"
2nd-person Eren POV, about Levi carrying him to bed. Sweet but not saccharine. You’re a little surprised he’s so warm. You’re surprised that he can bleed, breathe, cell divide. You’re surprised he needs food and water, that he isn’t impervious to rain. You’re fairly sure you spent the entirety of your childhood believing him immortal, invincible, infallible. And now you discover he couldn’t possibly be more human. 776 words.

shotgunsinlace — "A Good Friday"
Jean blackmails Eren: "I won't tell the Captain you stole the Commander's liquor... if you offer him a sensual massage." Who could have guessed Levi would take him up on it.
By the time he looks up, Levi has already accommodated himself on the cot, face down, arms by his sides.

His eyes are closed, dark lashes brushing his pale cheeks. His dark hair is combed out of the way, and it frames his angular face to the point where he looks well and truly beautiful.

This is a bad idea.

This is a very bad idea.
Not for us it isn't. 3,677 words.
island_of_reil: (Default)
[personal profile] island_of_reil
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.

Week 7 here! Find me at my personal blog and fic blog if you want to talk or rec stuff to me! 

1) 
TITLE: Disgusting 
AUTHOR: LithiumNails
SUMMARY: 
A dark high school AU, in which Annie Leonhardt is a sexual masochist, relying on her bitter rival Mikasa Ackerman to get her off and keep her secret. Unbeknownst to one another, each girl has a great deal struggling with the implications of their relationship.
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Mikasa/Annie
STATUS: incomplete, 14502 words
COMMENTS: Mikasa and Annie struggle with their sexualities in this fic- Mikasa figuring out whether she's gay or straight, and Annie accepting her own kinks. Maybe it's because I can relate, but I really, really enjoy this fic so far, and I think I would enjoy it even without the smut. 


2) 
TITLE: black dirt
AUTHOR: FerrisWheeling
SUMMARY: Nobody ever bothered to tell them that being scared was okay. 
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Reiner/Bertholdt/Annie
STATUS: complete, 11777 words
COMMENTS: A good argument can be made for this fic being platonic, but as a Titan Trio shipper, I like to think there's more. Modern AU about Annie, Bertholdt and Reiner's friendship from children to older teenagers, each of the three chapters from one of their points of view. Annie is as physically isolated here as she is emotionally reclusive in canon, living on an island with her father, and this touch and its effect on her personality is one that kept me reading to the end. 


3) TITLE: An Equal and Opposite Reaction 
AUTHOR: Island_of_Reil
SUMMARY: 
He knows a lot of ways to hurt her without drawing a drop of blood. She knows a lot of ways to strike back with words alone.
RATING: Mature
SHIPS: Levi/Annie, implied Levi/Eren
STATUS: complete, 3943 words
COMMENTS: In which Levi beats the shit out of Annie while she's restrained, but it's their back-and-forth banter that keeps one reading. Totally unpredictable with a flawless ending. 

4) TITLE: How You Have Changed
AUTHOR: AnonCat
SUMMARY: 
Armin had to force himself on the chained girl while grappling with his own tortured emotions. And Annie had to keep reminding herself that this was not the boy she had fallen in love with.
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Armin/Annie
STATUS: complete, 1805 words
COMMENTS: Smut, heavy angst, and rape mean this fic has a big trigger warning stamped across the front. Good for people looking for some major Armin/Annie angst. 

5) TITLE: Alleviation 
AUTHOR: JulyStorms
SUMMARY: 
Hange didn’t move, but he wasn’t surprised. The way she was lying there could only mean one thing. “Bleeding like a stuck pig?” he asked. (Levihan.)
RATING: Teen & up 
SHIPS: Levi/Hange
STATUS: complete, 1682 words
COMMENTS: I'd never really given Levi/Hange a shot before this fic. Who knew period cramps could turn into a fluffy oneshot? It's also unexpectedly funny, but I probably should have seen that coming. This is Hange and Levi, after all.

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.

Week 6 (or rather, entry 6, I guess)! Find me at my fic blog or personal blog

1) TITLE:
Game On
AUTHOR: anonymous at snkkink
SUMMARY: Prompt: Character A 
and Character B are both huge on video games and very competitive with one another. They have an ongoing bet: who's ever won less by the end of the night goes down on the other. Character A loses and has to go down on Character B.
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Connie/Sasha
STATUS: complete, 1513 words
COMMENTS: In which Jean, by some unfortunate twist of fate, is forced to listen in as Connie goes down on Sasha. Hilarious, and somehow hot despite the fact that it's from neither Connie nor Sasha's POV. One of my favorite kinkmeme fills. 

2) 
TITLE: Unexpected
AUTHOR: anonymous at snkkink
SUMMARY: Prompt: 
I just want Armin eating Annie out and treating her like the fucking queen she is. Bonus points if he jacks himself off at the same time. 
RATING: Explicit 

SHIPS: Armin/Annie
STATUS: complete, 1520 words
COMMENTS: Instant bookmark. I know Armin is sexually clueless in quite a lot of fanfics, but this fic makes the cliche interesting and even hot with his eager-to-please, confused enthusiasm. 

3) TITLE: Conversation 16
AUTHOR: ymirkrista at AO3
SUMMARY: 
There’s an electrical pull between them, and if she turned around now then maybe Historia would kiss her, cup her chest with tentative hands.
RATING: Mature
SHIPS: Ymir/Historia

COMMENTS: This fic is by the same author who wrote But I'm a Cheerleader, which is a humor fic. I was really pleased to find that the author is more than proficient with serious fics as well! The writing is beautiful and the ending made my heart hurt more than any fic should. 


4) TITLE: Burn Baby Burn
AUTHOR: ohthelinsanity at AO3
SUMMARY: 
“Connie!” Sasha shrieked, running out from under of the shower. “You fuckin’ idiot!” Her words had no bite, only panic, as she helped him up; she wasted no time and stripped Connie of his shirt. “Now it’s your turn,” Sasha told him as she reached for his belt buckle.
Connie had a dream like this. Sorta. Not really. Well. This wasn’t exactly the shower he had in mind.
(In which there are chemistry accidents and emergency showers)
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Connie/Sasha
STATUS: complete, 2481 words
COMMENTS: "I think we both know it was only a matter of time before we saw each other in our underwear." Chemistry accidents don't sound like the cutest thing, but this fic really is. I usually avoid high school AUs- I'm glad I didn't avoid this one. 

5) TITLE: lend me your ear
AUTHOR: foreverautumn at AO3
SUMMARY: 
Eren's not a vindictive person. Really, he's not. In fact, he considers himself a big supporter of doing the right thing, fighting the good fight (literally, if need be); basically, he's a big proponent of justice.
Sitting here with Jean's credit card clutched in his hand, Eren's sure this is just the beginning of a long and prosperous road full of justice.
(or, the sex line fic that nobody wanted. Officially rated E for chapter 2)
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Levi/Eren
STATUS: complete, 20410 words
COMMENTS: Okay, since Ereri is so not my jam, I was rather reluctant to read this fic. Eventually, through a friend's convincing, I gave it a try. And I should probably stop hesitating to read fics that I don't think I'll love, because I usually do end up liking them. This one is no exception. Good for anyone with... phone sex kinks? Praise kinks? Things like that.


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.

Hi, I'm trash and I'm very sorry for not posting in forever. Reminder that you can always come pester me at my fic blog or my personal blog and remind me that I made a commitment to this community. 

1) TITLE:
Unicorns
AUTHOR: cymk at AO3
SUMMARY: Kink meme fill. An 11-year old Armin witnesses two members of the Military Police murder his parents, and they force themselves on him to keep him quiet. The aftermath renders him mute, pregnant, and barely able to cope. 
RATING: Explicit
SHIPS: Armin/OMCs
STATUS: complete, 7711 words
COMMENTS: A/B/O elements and graphic rape had me convinced it wasn't the fic for me, but I'm glad to have eventually read it. The second-person narration is different, but interesting. 

2) TITLE:
Comedown
AUTHOR: Island_of_Reil at AO3
SUMMARY:“You know what else, Jean? I’m going to be seeing and dreaming about that woman bleeding out and falling for weeks to come. That was what I was dreaming about when you woke me. Because of you. That was your nightmare to take on. I have enough of my own, thank you, and plenty more to come.”
RATING: Mature
SHIPS: Gen, Armin & Jean friendship or pre-slash 
STATUS: complete, 4551 words
COMMENTS: Originally a kinkmeme fill, this fic explores the possibility that Jean wasn't killed in chapter 58, and that Armin killed the woman before she could shoot Jean. This is a theory to which I personally subscribe, so I hope to see the next chapter play out something like this. (Hopefully it will, because the Armin and Jean interaction was really in-character and believable.)

3) TITLE:
Tower of Babel 
AUTHOR: ohthelinsanity at AO3
SUMMARY: After her previous college roommates moved out, Sasha managed to find the three replacements to keep her flat: Ymir, her alcohol connoisseur co-worker, Annie, a secret underground fighter, and Krista, the bastard of a rich man who pays her to keep her identity a secret. Three's all she needed, but when Sasha meets a homeless, pregnant teen by the name of Mikasa, she can't turn her away.
But in the wake of their new living arrangements, the girls are challenged to see their problems in a new light, and things start to pile up: liquor bottles, hospital visits, credit card bills, and maternity clothes. Sasha is determined to keep together the apartment of people she brought under one roof, even though it comes at a sacrifice. But the cute bald guy at the comedy club thinks she doesn't have to sacrifice a thing: all she has to do is accept a little help.
RATING: Teen & up
SHIPS: Ymir/Christa, Sasha/Connie, Annie/Bertholdt
STATUS: incomplete, 22970 words
COMMENTS: I started this fic because the author runs the popular tumblr blog
textsfromtitanfood, and they have some pretty cute headcanons when the SNK characters aren't busy with texting shenanigans. This fic is an adorable modern AU and definitely worth reading. 

4) TITLE:
Ladyship drabble collection

AUTHOR: ShinjiShazaki at AO3
SUMMARY: Works taken from prompts requested on my tumblr, updated as I work on the backlog between stories. Full to the brim of ladyships and only ladyships.
RATING: Unrated
SHIPS: Ymir/Christa, Mikasa/Annie, Mikasa/Sasha
STATUS: incomplete, 13940 words
COMMENTS: So far, this fic is a collection of nine usually-unconnected oneshots. My personal favorites are chapter 8, which is a continuation of the author's recently-completed fic
thieves in the night, and chapter 4, which is some hella awesome Mikasa/Annie smut. A fic for femslash fans everywhere. 

5) TITLE:
Forget the World
 
AUTHOR: anonymous at snkkink
SUMMARY: Annie, in short, despises her human form and all the sad little commodities (hunger/pooping/periods) that come with it. 
RATING: Mature 
SHIPS: Annie/Armin
STATUS: complete, 2829 words
COMMENTS: Okay, I'm biased- I requested this fic. But even if I hadn't, I know I still would have loved it. A really neat look at Annie's character, even though we have no evidence that she had any preference for either her human or titan form. Somebody was cool enough to turn my stupid headcanon into a fantastic fic, and for that, it deserves a spot on this list. I only wish it was on AO3 or FFN! 

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.

Ymir/Historia
STATUS:

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.

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.

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.

 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.
