smutrecs fest day 18

In honor of a certain scene in "Cyborg," today's recs all have the theme of "bound or tied up."



Today's Clex rec is Penemuel's Experimentation.

Clark finally tells Lex his secret. Lex suggests that for Clark's own safety, they should test Clark's limits--first in his convenient basement lab, and then in bed. "So, now that you're my helpless captive, what should I do to you?"



Today's mystery Smallville rec is hackthis's Restrained. (Clark/Lex)

This time Lex is the one tied up, and Clark's in control. He tightens his hold because he can, but it never actually occurs to him that Lex is trying to get away. If he really didn’t want to be at Clark’s mercy, he never would’ve agreed to the padded cuffs in the first place.... It would be easy to just suck Lex off and be done with it, but that’s not what Clark wants. He wants more than shouting and kicking; he wants Lex completely unhinged. Unrestrained and raw.



Today's other fandom recs are all Harry Potter stories.

Today is a good day for me to rec Harry Potter, because for some reason or other my favorite stories in this fandom are mainly perverse and scary non-con (though I'm also including one that is not, just in case the other two are too dark for my readers).

Amanuensis's And Just Plain Wrong is without a doubt the darkest and most perverse HP story I have ever *enjoyed*. Warning: rape, non-con, bestiality, and unhappy ending. If that doesn't scare you away: Harry and his fellow Gryffendors are basically sexual slaves of the Death Eaters, who have won the war and turned Hogwarts into their personal fiefdom. Unlike a lot of stories that explore this scenario, they *don't* escape in the end. Nevertheless, this story is unbelievably hot, and features Harry/Draco, Harry/Snape, Harry/Lucius, Harry/Voldemort, Hermione/Bellatrix, and probably some other pairings I'm forgetting.


Compared to "And Just Plain Wrong," Isis's An Eye for an Eye is light and fluffy, but it's still basically non-con (Harry/Lucius). It's funny, I don't even *like* Lucius, but I do have a weakness for "forced marriage" stories, and apparently a kink for Harry torture. Although Voldermort has been defeated, Lucius is still alive, and he uses an arcane wizarding law to force Harry to marry him. And this *isn't* a story where the marriage eventually leads to love.

Finally, just for folks who don't like non-con, here's a nicer HP rec:
Mad Martha's The Lodger (Harry/Draco). After the war, Harry is lonely and has trouble making connections with people. Because he is a social outcast, Draco finds himself boarding with Harry, and the two eventually learn they have a lot in common.

well, for a couple of years i read every snarry story i could find. i got into that fandom because i had such a case on alan rickman. then i got into david thewlis as lupin and found i liked snape/lupin a lot. i even read snape/DD that was appealing. of pairings among the younger set, i liked harry/ron best.

authors i liked, among others, were dementor delta, isolde, and nym. did you read Nym's Shattered? wow, i liked it. i'm still following A Bittersweet Potion by Alchemia and Bugland, the only HP WIP i follow. when a movie comes out, i get interested again for a while and check out Pornish_Pixies. *g*

the amanuensis story, btw, i did try to read when it was fairly new, but it was a bit too strong for me. she can sure write, though!

I mostly read Snarry too (though also a lot of Harry/Draco, and Snape/pretty much anyone else), and I've read all those authors that you listed, but for whatever reason the stories that *stick in my head* for this fandom are all extreme darkfic. (I don't usually like darkfic--at least, not without some sort of happy ending, so I really don't know what it is about the HPverse that makes me like those particular stories).

there is a lot of excellent writing in the darkfic category. i know what you mean about finding them fascinating even though they're not your favorite. i read plenty myself but found the amanuensis one just a bit too harsh, maybe. she's fearless.

dementor delta's story about harry and the snake is one i'll probably continue to reread once in a while, just because it's so lovable. a good writer can make me read things that, if i stopped to think about it, i wouldn't be inclined to try. (wanking by snake!)
