“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."
― Stephen Fry (on censorship)

Reanimated - Tigbit

A highly original, entertaining fanfic from Tigbit. After his accidental death Jared progresses to heaven where he passes time creating real estate.

'He tries not to think of his family too much. He knows what they’re up to, who’s doing what, and it’s a welcome kind of ache; his mailbox is always overflowing with updates, courtesy of some bizarre heavenly watch program.'

The Course of Honour - Avoliot

An excellent original work from Avoliot on AO3, could not put this one down. Prince Kiem is hurried into a marriage with Count Jainan to preserve the treaty between their two planets. Keim puts Jainan's subdued manner down to the fact that he is still in mourning for his partner Prince Taam who recently died in a flybug accident.

50 by hellhoundsprey

50 - hellhoundsprey

Wow, read this non-stop. Sam Wesson is the abusive Dom in this relationship and Dean Smith is the damaged vulnerable sub. Unputdownable, still a WIP but it's mostly there.
Art by jklionheart
'"Give me that control over you, Dean. Let me be your self-control. Let me worry. Give yourself over to me."

Sounds like a good deal, actually. No worries. No responsibility. Sam is watching out for him. Sam knows what he is doing. Sam always knows what's good for Dean. '
