Title: A Cure for Boredom by emmagrant01 (very, very NC-17)
Fandom: Sherlock BBC
Pairing: Sherlock/John (essentially)
Categories: BDSM, smut, drama, smut, angst, smut, smut, smut (can't really emphasize the smut too much), favorite
Length: ~81,000 words
Warnings: John has sex with a *lot* of other people (but it's really all about Sherlock)

Review:
Sherlock is bored and John is complaining about a lack of sex. So, Sherlock takes John to a sex club. As you do.

I can't believe I haven't recced this fic before, considering this is quite possibly the best BDSM fic I've read for people who (like me) rarely read BDSM. I'm deeply impressed with the way the author manages to build up an intense sextual relationship between Sherlock and John without actually involving any sexual contact between the two of them. Equally impressive is the way she writes John's gradual understanding of his own submissive desires, without altering his character or making hims suddenly want to be submissive 24/7 (at least no more so than he already is). And I can't forget to mention her skill in writing OCs -- John's sexual partners are an essential part of the story, but at the same time, they don't take the story over. That's a fine line that emmagrant01 handles beautifully.

The slow escalation of the Dom/sub relationship between Sherlock and John, the growing sexual attraction between the two of them, and the emotional impact as all of this drama comes to a head -- all of it comes together for one of the most satisfying fics I've read in years.

Title: Lord of the Tansy Cakes by thesexbots
Fandom: A Knight's Tale
Pairing: Chaucer/Wat
Categories: humor, smut, crack
Length: ~3,000 words
Warnings: n/a

Review:
Chaucer, Wat, and Roland undertake a challenge of gastrointestinal fortitude to win the right to be Will's best man. Somehow, this leads to smut.

This fic is as light and lively as a tansy cake. (For the record, I have no idea what a tansy cake is.) As cracky as the movie and just as much fun, this is an entertaining morsel for anyone needing a smile.

Title: Skin Deep by RivkaT
Fandom: Smallville
Pairing: Clark/Lex
Categories: genderswap, drama, angst, smut
Length: 27,700 words
Warnings: brief unwanted groping (not between Lex and Clark)

Review:
After Clark declines to take over the world, the cave punishes him by turning him into a woman. Ironically enough, that makes it a lot easier to give Clark exactly what he wants: a relationship with Lex.

Apparently I'm on a Smallville kick today. Another fun fic, though a bit more angsty than my last rec, with an inordinate amount of smut and a lot of Kent family angst (they still aren't thrilled about Lex). Good writing and some interesting commentary on the differences between men and women (Clark isn't quite as feminist as he thinks he is) and you have a fun read for fans of genderswap or just of good old-fashioned Clex.

Title: Bad Porn and Back Rubs by ellenscult
Fandom: Chuck
Pairing: Chuck/Casey
Categories: drama, smut
Length: 5,000 words
Warnings: n/a

Review:
While on the run from the government after season 1 (?), Chuck and Casey find themselves in an endless series of hotel rooms with nothing for entertainment aside from bad porn. What happens next probably isn't much of a surprise.

This is an enjoyable, non-demanding, fun read, with Casey gruff but rather nice underneath and Chuck his usual flustered self. Ideal if you're in the mood for a light story spiced with smut.
