4. Friendship (?)
6. Henry gets off a plane...SiHanChul are there when he loses Donghae.
7. Beautiful glimpse into Henry's mind; wonderfully written. Heechul is not so bitchy, but totally believable.
2. Picture of You
6. Donghae is a famous photographer looking for a perfect model. Enter Kibum. Cue lights. And... action!
7. it's a brilliant story line and it deserves to be read. Over and over again.
2. Unique for You
6. Two new AI units join Hangeng's police units. He doesn't think there's anything special about them; they aren't human after all... However, he is soon proven wrong.
7. Written for SJ rare pairings, the Hangeng/Kyuhyun is simply spectacular. And the Sci-Fi is wonderfully believable and intriguing. I wish there was more.
2. Original Flavor
6. Kyuhyun buys ice cream for his niece and desires a treat of his own
7. PERFECT story for Kyumin. Fluffy, happy, with a little bit of "omg, yes, right there, that's perfect..."
Doing this in a slightly bizarre format this round, since I'm packing to leave in less than 12 hours! Plz forgive, and I'll miss the next round of recs, at least.
If you're not reading everything mytigerhobbes has been writing, lately, you're missing out.
Examples I enjoyed were The Love Song, The Reeds Still There, and of us, a history complete, which literally made me sit and cry for 15 minutes after I read it.
Another prolific author to watch out for is coley_merrin, who has been branching into KiHae with Underneath, as well as returning to The Life I Live universe, SiHan style, with multi-chaptered fic-in-progress The Air I Breathe (4 of 7 chapters complete, at the time I'm writing this).
papered brought some KiHae movieverse with feels like love, and thundersquall returned with some KiHae of her own in AU-style Picture of You.
If KiHae isn't to your taste, try a rarer sample of adorable het!pairing fluff with tamryneradani's Henry + Minzy fic Red and Blue makes Purple. Or, check out hotarumyst's K.R.Y threesome AU, Poker Face and enjoy the dynamics and some delicious description.
2. title: of us, a history complete
3. author: mytigerhobbes
4. genre: gen, romance, angst
5. rating: R
6. brief summary: Chronicling the lives of two members after Super Junior. Hankyung/Heechul, Heechul-centric
7. why you're recommending it: I don't usually like future!fic because it has a tendency to be really depressing, but this manages to be heart-wrenching in a rather nice way. Although this still pulls your heart out and stamps on it with combat boots, the fact that the two stay together for as long as they do, and remain as happy as they do, really does give you hope. It's future!fic written the way you kind of want their lives to pan out.
8. On his twenty-eighth birthday he makes an announcement via mass text.
2. title: Quiet Places
3. author: wobaozhewo
4. genre: drama, angst
5. rating: PG
6. brief summary: A million things you want to say. A million things he doesn't. And then it's too late. Yehsung/Ryeowook
7. why you're recommending it: again, another genre I don't usually read, but done so well that I loved it. It is very well written, therefore making the rather cliched plot line work in a new way. I mean this in the best way possible: not being able to say what you want to say is an affliction of life, and it's explored well here.
8. In the silence that comes after, you know (just know) that things will be different. He will treat you different.
2. Picture of You
4. AU, romance
6. Famous photographer Donghae is surprised when ordinarily haughty model Kibum turns out to feel a little more than friendship for him.
7. A lovely AU, the characters are so adorable and I loved their dynamic in this.
2. Poker Face
4. AU, romance
6. In which Ryeowook is manipulative, and Yesung and Kyuhyun are poker rivals.
7. Sex, poker and a love triangle, where can you go wrong? Featuring the rare pairing YeHyun and a clever ending.
2. The Love Song
4. Angst, romance
6. Kyuhyun meets someone special on the bus home from the recording studio.
7. Absolutely breathtaking. More rare pairing (the author intended it to be a surprise so I’ll leave that there), beautiful prose; I could wax lyrical about this fic.
2. Quiet Places
4. Drama, angst
6. Yesung doesn’t fit into Ryeowook’s world.
7. So raw and painful. Minimalist writing but it completely works, and adds to the starkness of Yesung’s emotions. Another one I could go on and on about but I’ll just say this: so, so pretty. And so sad.
4. PWP, orgy
6. Ryeowook is a slut for his bandmates. SJM OT7 sexfest.
7. This was filthy hot. Long and satisfying; some of the best sex I’ve read in Suju, hands down.
6. QMi – Kyuhyun has scars, but Zhou Mi doesn’t care about that. He just has to make Kyuhyun realise that.
7. Sweet, cute and well written. I’m sure it mimics all our sentiments about any scars Kyuhyun might possess.
2. Anatomy 101
6. Kyuhyun and Sungmin take advantage of Siwon. In the awesome sense.
7. Amazingly hot OT3, kimonochi can write some serious smut.
2. Leading Scorer
4. Genderswap, smut
6. Player!Kibum and girl!Donghae have some dirty, school sex.
7. So, so hot. Het sex at its best.
2. Of Us, A History Complete
4. Angst, romance
6. Super Junior after debut, and the direction their lives take.
7. One word: exquisite. The focus is on HanChul and it’s so bittersweet I could cry. The angst is perfect; the author treats the audience as intelligent people and it pays off – subtle, aching heartbreak abounds.
Genre: AU, fantasy, a bit of everything
Brief Summary: An alternate universe where everyone knows about the Gifted living among them, and the Soo Man Academy for Gifted Individuals is a school made specifically for them. HanKyung comes all the way from China to learn control, and even though he hadn’t wanted any friends, he is soon taken in by one group in particular.
Recommendation: If you haven’t been stalking Miracle for updates, you’re missing out on a LOT. The storyline is so realistically portrayed, and you really feel for the characters when something happens to them. This is one of those fics that, even if it hadn’t been of Super Junior and had been completely random people, you would stalk for it all the same. Yes, that kind of fic. You’d have to read it to see just what I mean.
Title: YeSung Explains… Productivity and Parents
Brief Summary: A hilarious collection of YeSung’s views on life. In this update, KangIn is left to explain to his parents that no, he’s not pregnant, with YeSung complicating matters through the phone.
Recommendation: My ‘summary’ doesn’t do it justice. This is the PERFECT retreat from the many angsty fics most of us spend the majority of our times reading. Every update will have you on the floor laughing, and the author writes her YeFail so well it could actually be happening. And, come on, who DOESN’T crack up at YeSung’s repeated attempts to tell KangIn he’s pregnant?
Genre: Fluff, Drama
Brief Summary: A recollection of the different times Henry has been afraid of the music industry. From the first time he stepped on the plane to Korea and had to leave everything he had known behind. When he met Super Junior and again as he listened to the angry chanting of the fans. Even when he is on the plane to China after Super Junior M is formed, starting over again for the second time. But the time he was most afraid of the music industry, was when he saw the effect it was having on RyeoWook.
Recommendation: This fic has very strong visuals, and is one that anyone who has ever felt like an outsider can relate to easily. Reading fanfiction about how Henry came into the music industry has always been very thought-provoking, but this is probably one of the deepest there is. The protectiveness Henry shows for RyeoWook at the end is very sweet, and helps to ease the bitter reality of the subject.
Title: The Last Night /Umbrella
Genre: Drama, Angst
Brief Summary: EunHyuk approaches Tablo a few days after his engagement was announced, to offer him his congratulations. Old memories of their time together was brought up, but even though they never stopped loving each other, it was time to move on. Even though it might not be easy.
Recommendation: Even if you aren’t a BloHyuk shipper, this is going to make you cry. So much can be felt in here, it’s really expertly written from beginning to end. A perfect farewell to the pairing, though hoping it isn’t the end of BloHyuk on this site. EunHyuk’s emotions come across loud and clear, and you just can’t help but echo them.
2. Why Do I Always Die?
6. Why is it that Hankyung is always the one to die?
7. Very short fic that shows Hankyung wondering a good question; why is it that he is always the one to kick it in the MVs and many of the fanfics? :/ Inquiring minds want to know.
2. If I Were a Boy
4. Humor, romance, angst, AU
6. Eunhyuk makes Siwon have a sexual identity crisis. :)
7. Rare!Pair + college AU + Genderbending Hyuk = AWESOMENESS! It helps that the plot is well developed, I adore dancing!Hyuk, and am a sucker for DBSK cameos.
2. L is for the way you look at me
4. Romance, Fluff
6. Sungmin ponders on love...
7. ASDFGHJKLSAS~~ the song fits the KyuMin romance so very well! Written mostly from Sungmin's point of view, the fic goes over the development of the KyuMin relationship.
2. Substitute for Honey
6. Mean Hankyung is mean.
7. The Super Junior members with whom Hankyung interacts boys are stunned by his meanness...but there's a reason for it. So amusing imagining Hankyung, of all people, being mean.
2. The Roundabout Confession
4. Humor, Fluff
6. Kyuhyun has a crush, but performs some recon first.
7. Rare!Pairs are awesome, and Kyuhyun is really quite amusing in this fic. He makes sure his bases are covered before doing anything. :)
2. It's all fun and games (until someone loses the remote (then it's just fun)
4. Humor, Fluff
6. The Wii is taken to China with SJ-M, and chaos ensues.
7. Resistance is futile, as Han Geng learns, when it comes to making rules having to do with the Wii, which is in of itself an addicting and dangerous contraption no matter in whose hands the remote is in.
2. You knew it was coming...
6. Offspring generate pairings and create chaos.
7. Playing on the amusing train of thought that different group members are paired together to create 'offspring' in the form of new group members. Confusing, but amusing.
2. Fantasie Impromptu
4. Romance, AU
6. Fantasy come to life to bring life back to reality.
7. I miss KangTeuk, and this one is a beautiful piece! Kangin is lone and lonely, but a mysterious figure "breaking into" his house late at night to play his piano changes him for the better.
Next time, yoomie will be joining the rec team with her contributions. ^^
