[community profile] smutswap  reveals are over, so I figured it was time for a wrap up post, since I actually read a lot in this exchange.

First things first, my gift of awesome!! I received a wonderful story for the Kate Daniels series, which I hadn't expected at all since I'd requested the rarest of rarepairs in Barabas/Christopher. And honestly, the gift surpassed my wildest dreams. 8k of them figuring their shit out, dealing with their feelings, kicking some magical owl ass, AND ALL THE EMOTIONAL GETTING TOGETHER SMUT.
IT IS GREAT. I love it so much, I haven't been this excited for a fic since my first Yuletide I think.


Something Fierce (8295 words) by anticyclone
Chapters: 2/2
Fandom: Kate Daniels - Ilona Andrews
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Barabas Gilliam/Christopher Steed
Characters: Barabas Gilliam, Christopher Steed, Julie Olsen
Additional Tags: Getting Together, Hand Jobs, Blow Jobs, Wing Kink, Anal Sex
Summary:
"Barabas, if you go any slower, you'll be going backwards." They've been circling each other for a while. Something's got to give.
 
Coincidentally, I got matched to [personal profile] anticyclone for them as well, so when before this exhange they had zero fic, now there's two! I'm honestly hoping this'll seduce other people to write more for them too–the Kate Daniels fandom always need more fics in general–I'm so in love with them, I'm forever hungry for more.

It's the first time I've matched to someone who was also matched to me, and honestly I had a blast, because it was great to discuss them at length in the comments. 

But what I like best is that theoretically, these two fics could coexist in canon, since their timelines more or less match up, and that makes everything all the more delicious to me.

always keep your heart locked tight (3977 words) by Pameluke
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Kate Daniels - Ilona Andrews
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Barabas Gilliam/Christopher Steed
Characters: Barabas Gilliam, Christopher Steed, Derek Gaunt
Additional Tags: Suit Sex, Blow Jobs, Clothed Sex, Pining, Porn with Feelings, Face-Fucking, Getting Together, Semi-Public Sex
Summary:
Barabas refuses to confront his feelings about Christopher. Kate's wedding shakes his defenses however, so he ends up looking for Christopher anyway. Only to talk of course.
 
I also enjoyed a lot of other works in the collection, most of them original work. Rec list below the cut, heed the tags and warnings though, because a lot of it is non/dubcon. And all of it is explicit.


With This Ring (I Give You My Promise) (2181 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Rape/Non-Con
Relationships: Female Human/Male Fae
Additional Tags: Femdom, Mind Games, Predicament Bondage, Painplay, Non-Penetrative Sex, Stockholm Syndrome, (sort of), Fae & Fairies, Inappropriate Uses of Iron
SummaryHe arches and sobs the moment her fingers touch his skin, desperately trying to get away from the pain.

This isn't revenge. It's a means to an end.

Note: Inappropriate Use Of Iron indeed. I loved this for the clean and disattached mindset of the woman, who's just doing this to get what she wants, aka her sister back. The ending scene promises so much more yet to come, it honestly gave me shivers.

Lessons Learned (1145 words) by Starrrz
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Original Female Character/Original Female Character
Characters: Orginal Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: Cunnilingus, Virginity
Summary: Cecily knows that she is so very lucky to be given the gift of her stepmother's experience.

Note: I'm not usually all that into the whole virginity thing, but Cecily's naivity combined with the manipulative stepmother really worked for me.

It's All Fun and Games Until Someone Traumatizes an AI (2957 words) by Megan
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Original Male Character/Original Male Character
Characters: Original Male Character(s)
Additional Tags: Outer Space, Exhibitionism, Naked/Clothed, Anal Fingering, Anal Sex, Safer Sex, Enthusiastic Consent, Explicit Consent, Implied Voyeurism, Casual Sex, Blindfolds, Teasing, Orgasm Delay/Denial, Cock Rings, Light Masochism, Light Bondage, Held Down, Nipple Play
Summary: On the sliding scale of bad decisions, picking up a hitchhiker definitely starts out somewhere in the vicinity of wearing flashy, expensive jewelry into a seedy port. It has since settled down nicely into something more like making eye contact with the one guy in the bar who wants to tell you all about his unbelievable, revolutionary doctoral thesis.

Note: Just super fun characters doing the naughty when and where they really shouldn't be doing it. I really enjoyed the writing style, and the narrator had a great voice. Plus I loved the dinosaurs reference.
 
Horseplay (3565 words) by Spindle
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Rape/Non-Con
Relationships: Prince/Mercenaries
Additional Tags: Gang Rape, Spitroasting, Come as Lube, Gags, Forced Orgasm, Humiliation, Rough Sex, Multiple Orgasms, Breathplay, Light Pony Play, Orgasm Denial, Mentions of Public Use
Summary: The horsemen’s tent was like nothing Ao had ever seen before. None of the books had mentioned the lapis lazuli and pearls scattered across the floor of grungy skins, or the heady smell of kush that seemed to cling to his clothes and heavy eyelids, or the greasy men lounging in precious belts and crude boots, laughing and drinking Yavana wine, ignoring the prince standing in their midst.
 
Note: Possibly my favorite from the collection. Super hot, super interesting worldbuilding and characters, and a combination of kinks I didn't knew I'd be into, but boy was I. This author penned another 4 works for this exchange, all of which were hot and well-written.
 
A Fine and Private Place (2795 words) by JackOfNone
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Original Female Character/Original Female Character, Female Zombie/Female Necromancer
Characters: Original Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: Biting, Grinding, Undead, Guro, POV First Person, Danger Kink, Claws, Kinking On The Macabre, Treat, Necrophilia, Blood Kink, Descriptions of gore, Casual Talk of Murder, Mutual Threats
Summary: A roving ghoul with vengeance on her mind. A necromancer just a little too enchanted with her morbid trade. And maybe, just maybe, a chance to feel alive again.
 
Note: I just really loved the concept and the characters. There's so much build-up for so much more to come, I'm honestly hoping we'll see more of these.
 
Seedkeeper (11027 words) by elrhiarhodan
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Rape/Non-Con
Relationships: Jarrah/Asher
Characters: Asher - God of Darkness and Fertility, Jarrah - Son of Jiseth the Priestess and Ydon the Destroyer
Additional Tags: Dubious Consent, Collars, Dom/Sub | Power Play, Humiliation, Asshole Spanking, Whipping, Bondage, Dominance, Seduction, Multiple Orgasms, Involuntary Nudity, Public Sex, Exhibitionism, Cock Cage, Nipple Piercing, Chastity Device, fertility gods, Mpreg, Male God/Male Worshiper - Freeform, Public Use, Rape/Non-con Elements
Summary: Jarrah, the seventh son of Ydon the Destroyer, waits for the invaders to come and kill his hated sire. Ydon had swept through the land of Ur-Avvar, bringing famine and death. He'd destroyed the holy temple and perverted it into a seat of power. But Jarrah is also the son of Jiseth, the last priestess of the God of Darkness and Fertility, and she has taught her son the rites that will bring the gods back to Ur-Avvar and fertility to the land.
 
Note: What an amazing world that was built here. It felt so vast and rich in history, I loved the characters so much, especially because the gods felt suitably godlike and not too human. 
 
So Far Fallen (8224 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: King Sold into Slavery/Male Owner, King/Enemy Prince
Characters: Captured King, Enemy Prince
Additional Tags: Genital Piercing, Dehumanization, Humiliation, Slave Training, Crying During Sex, Deepthroating, Praise Kink, Bondage, Spoils of War, Sensory Deprivation, collaring, Also Fantasy Politics For Some Reason, Treat
Summary: When the war is over and the casualties have been counted, it all comes down to this: a true king makes sacrifices for his people.
 
Note: The other contender for favorite story of the collection. So fucking good. The King is a marvelous character, truly what a King should be like I think, the prince is suitably evil yet likeable, and there is obviously so much more going to happen to the both of them after this. I'd honestly read a novel of this, but then I'm always weak for fantasy politics.

Fandom: Original Work
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Female Space Pirate/Female Intergalactic Peace Officer
Additional Tags: Enemies to Lovers, Oral Sex, Vaginal Fingering, Worldbuilding, Alternate Universe - Space, Implied/Referenced Prostitution
Summary: Patty is an officer in the fleet, a captain, and she should have no business visiting the pleasure circuit. Marina runs the Echelon, and she should have no business with Patty, full stop.
 
Note: This one made me sad. there's so much history between them, and they're so stuck in their position in the world, unable to show the care they have for one another. Lots of feelings with the smut.
