Have a fic rec, because it cheered me up and made me smile:

[fandom: Megamind] Natural by setepenre_set
post-movie. Megamind explains something about his legal classification to Roxanne, who isn't entirely sure he's not joking.

(Megamind is my comfort movie, apparently, because that's what I'm sitting here thinking about watching again. Actually, I would take this movie over all the Avengers and massive superhero franchises anyday. Megamind is hands-down the Best Superhero(villain) Movie Ever Made.)

OMGosh, I got a Yuletide Madness Treat. And it's for The Champions:

Mouth to Mouth by Anonymous for roseveare
Fandoms: The Champions (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
No Archive Warnings Apply
Pairing: Richard Barrett/Sharon MacReady/Craig Sterling
Summary: Craig comes home from a solo mission.

Such an awesome little fic and the character voices ring out in it. And it's bringing into actuality all my thoughts about the link between these three and how I OT3'd them before I even knew that as a concept.

(There is a microfic in the Madness archive, too, which is also lovely. OMG this show needs fandom. If ever a show needs more fandom. It's like the most OT3ish show ever guys seriously.)

I got an awesome Yuletide story crammed full of my favourite Nathan-overwhelmed-by-sensation!kink:

Bone-Deep by Anonymous for roseveare
Fandoms: Haven
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Pairing: Duke Crocker/Nathan Wuornos
Summary: If Nathan was Duke and Duke Nathan, where did one end and the other begin?

It's set during the bodyswap episode, so explores that factor plus Duke's out-of-control Trouble as well as Nathan temporily being able to feel both the good and the bad things that are happening to the body he's in... plus Yuleporn. ;)

[personal profile] rheasilvia asked for a fic rec any fic rec. I've kind of been really uncertain about this one, because lists of recs, yep, I post those here, but one fic rec when it's not a spur-of-the-moment on the spot reccing? How do I choose!? and, well. Chances are that I'll choose a fandom you don't know or you'll have read it, is what I keep thinking. :)

In the end I figured I'd link my old favourite Duke/Nathan fic back from my first mad fanfic binge when I landed in the fandom, which is full of season 3 bitterness (or maybe it's late season 2 bitterness pre-empting season 3 bitterness, but anyway I think it's post-3x03 and I like season 3 bitterness) and numb-but-still-willing-to-sex Nathan (I like him, too) and a general aura of threat and gloom (probably on reflection it's got to be said that I like those, too). It's this one:

We're Made Out Of Blood And Rust by Skyline

It's Duke/Nathan as Nathan pays Duke a very ambiguous one-to-one night time visit after the revelation of Duke's Trouble has come out. There are some awesome twists of language in the descriptions and we get Duke's snarky opinion on Nathan and Duke's snarky opinion on himself, and little hints of backstory. And I did mention the bitterness? There's lots of that. Except it has the odd line to draw a laugh at the same time.

Here's a sample:

In a startling show of restraint, Nathan does not pull a gun on him, which oh, goody, means death won’t come knocking today. Nor is Wuornos wearing his Serious Detective Face. No doubt that means Nathan is here in an unofficial capacity to lord his moral superiority all over Duke’s nice clean bar.

Joy. The floors will get all sticky with condescension and virtue.

(always liked that last line)

(And I don't really know why this isn't ranking higher when I filter Duke/Nathan by kudos on AO3 to find it. Maybe it's the season 3 bitterness? Or the threat and gloom?)
[personal profile] alessandriana asked for Haven recs. There might be more comprehensive recs lists later in December but I'm going to start here with recent fics on AO3 that I've particularly enjoyed.

Aches by Jadzibelle (!unfinished)
Current WIP that claims most of my fic-reading interest. It has 18 chapters and is 50k long already. A canon-divergent look at Duke and Nathan's return to Haven with Jennifer in season 4. Lots of warmth and friendship and occasional fights with indications of building up to something more.

Of Sea Monsters and Safety by embolalia
A Duke and Nathan as children fic with a bit more depth than the usual cuteness and scrapping.

Five Times People Were Utterly Oblivious to Their Relationship and One Time It Was Too Obvious to Ignore by lovesrogue36, Rabbitt
Awesome 5 Things style fic with misunderstandings of the Audrey/Duke/Nathan relationship from various Haven townsfolk, with a bit of action and a bit of humour and a bit of sexytimes thrown in.

I'm Your Boogeyman by Miah_Arthur
I can't recommend this one enough. I'm biased, because I beta-read it, but I love it to bits. This is Miah's Halloween fic for spook_me, when we were both knocking ourselves out to try and finish spook_me at the same time. Haven people are disappearing in their sleep after getting a specific nightmare; Nathan has the nightmare and determines to fix the Trouble when he's taken. But Duke's next in line and when Nathan comes a cropper trying to save him, everything's down to Duke.

this night that is past by whiplash
Cute mid-season 5 Naudrey plus Duke friendship where Nathan is sick.

begging at happiness' door by whiplash (!unfinished)
This is the first chapter of a WIP that hasn't been updated in some time, but even chapter 1 hits such an awesome concept and potential that I can't not mention it here.

Lavender by audreythree
Duke/Jennifer drabble, season 5. I cannot say anything about it without spoiling it, other than ow.

Issues of Consent and Old Lovers by lovesrogue36
Duke/Mara/Nathan porn. Yeah. Just that. *whistles innocently*

Theseus and the Minotaur by Miah_Arthur
Haven acts out Greek Mythology, Duke is caught up in the plot, Dwight is somewhat baffledly trying to make sure he doesn't get harmed in the process while getting distracted by the sight of Duke in a robe. Duke/Dwight.

Illustration for Miah_Arthur’s fanfic “Karma” and my pending podfic of it.

Not a kidfic. They are holding back their childhood selves.

Miah's Halloween fic is also complete and you should all go read it now:

I'm Your Boogeyman by Miah_Arthur

Summary: "A monster stalks and tortures people in their dreams for days before they disappear, only to reappear later suffering sudden cardiac arrest. For a month there are no leads and no hope, until first Nathan and then Duke begin having the dream."

M rated for gore. Featuring Nathan's hero complex biting him in the ass and Duke getting terrorised into playing with dolls. Duke/Nathan-ish. OT3ish.
Fly-by crackfic rec (v. short):

Dwarf's 7 by Thesseli - Rimmer and Lister of Red Dwarf in the Blake's 7 verse.

Drive-by art spam of shrunk!Duke and Nathan at the mercy of Audrey, prompted by [personal profile] kerithwyn and this delightful little fic from the Troublesfest exchange:

I have been having a minor freakout because two people hugged and kissed me at a social group tonight and I have issues with the expectation of social touching and the inescapability of it if you wish to maintain politeness/friendships, even from people I know and like, and one of them I only just met tonight, so I am mostly posting this here now to make myself think about something else. I hate the fact that touchy-feely hippie type people who are so understanding and open minded about everything else yet can't grasp the fact that not everyone might like to be touched without explicit invitation. And I kind of flail because so many of the people I choose to hang out with are this type of people.

And witness my Jordan McKee icon comes out.
Mmm. I don't feel like being Yuletide-only on this, so I'm going to rec recent Haven fic regardless of whether it is a product of the Yuletide Challenge or not, although half these are. Possibly I'll do another rec post for Yuletide in a few days. (Consider I haven't yet even read all the 14 new fics the challenge generated in my primary fandom yet - concentration is screwed.) I'll also probably do another Haven recs post sometime with a broader range, since I think I've only ever pasted quick recs links in a few comments.

Like a Bad Version of Freaky Friday by Kateandbarrel
Nathan and Duke. Bodyswap. Hilarious.

The Uncertainty Principle by anonymous
Lexie and Jordan. Jordan stands her ground. (So does Lexie?)

A Very Merry Haven Christmas by anonymous
Duke Crocker. Vs... the Christmas Wishing Fairy.

Complicated by anonymous
Missing scene during 4x01. Oh, Nathan. Ow, my heart.

while there is blood left in my body by Salvation_dear
This is and should have been Jordan McKee... not-leaving Haven. (WIP)

Points on a Map by anonymous
Audrey, Duke, Nathan and a future mapped out for them in living spaces.

Spells Trouble by Kerithwyn
Vince Teagues... and Kenzi... in a bar (Lost Girl xover).

Ode by Kerithwyn
Duke's defining feature.

Okay, I'm not impartial. Because it's [personal profile] katta and we collude about how to make our favourite characters suffer, and speculate evilly on things like how Nathan's Trouble really functions or the alone-time Duke would require on his boat if he got turned into a girl. But, look! Plotfic! And Haven needs more plotfic*!

Eye to Eye by Kattahj
A Troubled thief is turning all of her victims temporarily blind, which makes the case difficult to investigate.

*I would argue that it needs more gen, too. Just because a fic is gen doesn't mean that two - or three - characters aren't still just a nudge off having sex. You know, like on the show! :D (It just means that the fic is choosing not to mention it.)
