All righty, so it took just a couple minutes, but I am quite pleased to announce the formation of the brand new hurt/comfort community specifically for recommendations: [livejournal.com profile] hcrec
AKA http://community.livejournal.com/hcrec/

Join and post recs/links to your favorite h/c pieces (one fic/art/vid/piece per post please!) or watch and see what goodies others are enjoying. Make sure that if you've enjoyed something someone reced, let them know you appreciate him/her spreading the word.

You can rec things you've enjoyed within the sneeze fetish community or things you've stumbled across outside you think other h/c-lovers will enjoy.

If you have any questions or need anything clarified, just ask me :-)

I've been in a Neville mood lately, so most of these recs are from Nev communities I lurk on...

FIC: Watch the Sky by [livejournal.com profile] mnemosyne_1 (Neville/Charlie, PG)- This is a 3-part fic that I absolutely fell IN LOVE with. The premise is that a dark curse has permanently hurt Neville's wand hand. He must hide this because of Ministry backwardsness, and it forces him to choose a different path in life. No longer can he be a herbologist. The path he finally chooses is a brave one and takes him all around the world. Even though his world's expanding and he's growing... his thoughts seem to revolve around Charlie. There are some great danger sequences, massaging of Neville's injury, some wonderful characters, plenty of strong emotions, and one heck of an ending. HIGHLY recommended!

FIC: Rebuilding by [livejournal.com profile] coffee_n_cocoa (Harry/Neville, PG)- A short ficlet/drabble set after the war dealing with Neville and Harry and plenty of post-war angst. I describe it as "dark, quiet, and tender at the same time".

FIC: A Cure for Hiccups by [livejournal.com profile] suntzu_s (Neville/Harry, NC-17)- Neville is hit by a spell in DA practice and can't stop hiccupping. Harry helps him out in some very caring, hot way.

ART: St. Mungos (NC-17!)- [livejournal.com profile] hump_day_smut's challenge this week was St. Mungos. We've got Lockheart, er, discovering himself. But we've also got a kinky Pansy preparing to take Draco's temperature. And we've got Harry giving Snape some special treatment to heal him.

Came upon this Snupin rec and wanted to put it here before I lost it!

DRABBLE- Sick by [livejournal.com profile] uthien82 (Snupin)- A very cute drabble done for a mood theme, containing sick Remus and Severus *G*

ART- Sick by [livejournal.com profile] karasu_hime (Snupin)- And if the drabble isn't cute enough, there's also adorable art in the mood theme with Remus and Severus all sick and sniffly, together, wrapped in blankets.

These were made for the Snupin Mood Theme at [livejournal.com profile] lupin_snape

A few communities I thought might be of interest:

[livejournal.com profile] hcfic- A great community set up by [livejournal.com profile] brigidmn to house all types of h/c fics. Highly recommended and needs love. Go, post, and enjoy! :-)

[livejournal.com profile] 10_hurt_comfort- An easy-going a multifandom fanfic challenge similar to dealing with hurt/comfort fics following ten themes. Claim a fandom & pairing and start working on your table! Check out the user info for rules, info, claims, etc. And check out the community itself for all the wonderful pieces that have been written thus far!

[livejournal.com profile] hurtcomfortrecs- A rec community for hurt/comfort fics! Everything under the sun is rec'ed here.

[livejournal.com profile] hd_hurtcomfort- Harry/Draco H/C community. I'm not really into the pairing (though I've written it so, yeah, I'm not one to talk) but the banner alone is nummy. Certainly a large, frequently-updated place for all your H/D H/C needs

[livejournal.com profile] remuslupain- Because you always hurt the one you love. I definitely love my Remus Lupin, and here's a community just for his suffering. It's got a variety of offerings at the moment- nothing that really jumps out at me, but certainly a community I will attempt to keep an eye on because of the concept alone.

So today I was listening to The Signal podcast at work and the ample amount of coughing and sneezing during the fic section made me all happy (and cautious about the volume). And for my own reference as much as anyone else's, here's my first Firefly/Serenity fandom rec post.

My favorite (and the first sickfic I ever encountered in the fandom):
Drabble & Podcast Episode: Chicken Soup is Good for the Soull by [livejournal.com profile] squish_67 (G)- OMG This is a wonderfully shiny, clever drabble with Mal and Jayne both sick. Mal is especially complainy and both are beautifully in character. I first heard it as part of the Jayne drabble series on the Strangely Literal podcast ([livejournal.com profile] sl_podcast) and the reader does a damn perfect (kinda congested, dare I say it!) job of reading it. So definitely check that out in audio here: Episode #14.5- Jayne Drabbles

And speaking of fics on audio:
Ficlet & Podcast Episode: Badger's World- Sick by Nick Edwards- features the two loveable "henchmen" in search of medicinal libations amidst lovely cold-like symptoms attacking everybody. Bonus is Kari & Les discuss people being sick. Plus, it all takes place during the first 8 minutes of the epsiode so you don't have to jump around within to get to it. Of course, the whole thing is worth listening to anyway, while you're there! Listen to the episode here: Episode 2 of Season 4

Some others I stumbled upon:
Excerpts: Excerpts by Space Wolf- some excerpts from a sneezefic (not much sneezing but some decidedly lovely h/c moments!) our very own Space Wolf was playing with. Gotta love the dialogue- it's perfection! I especially love the Kayle bits :-)

Fic: Wine Glasses & Cheese Cutters by Fish & RSB- Sick!Jayne deliciousness. Not a bad plot, to boot! And there's some additional h/c to be had since things on the job don't go quite as perfect as planned, but I won't spoil it for you. The Jayne moments alone are fantastic, though.
Jayne faltered, and let the weight sit on his chest for amoment. He started to lift the weight, but only made it halfway, before hisarms started to shake. This began to puzzle Jayne, and he started to say,"What the-" but he was cut off by a violent sneeze, and the weight almostjumped out of his hands.
Fortunately, Book caught the weight before it crushed Jayne, and he loweredit back onto the arms of the bench. Jayne sat up and wiped his nose on hisarm, then sniffled.
"Seems to me as you might be getting a little under the weather," Booksaid, handing Jayne a towel.

Ficlet: Sick Day by Lipton Lee- Okay, so this ficlet has its moment, but generally it didn't really rock my world. The writing is less than stellar (and the stuffy talk is strange) and Simon's first line struck me as totally OOC. Still, the idea of Mal being well and the entire crew coming down sick is rather cute.

And I've got to end with some shiny sorta slash:
Ficlet/Drabble: Cold by iety (Simon/Jayne?, PGish)- I'm seriously undecided about where I lean regarding slash in the 'verse but if I were already a fan of this pairing, I'd probably have melted on the spot. As it is, this is a wonderful ficlet with Jayne all freezing cold, shivering, and sneezing and Simon sweet and... well... Simonesque *G* Love it.

Harry Potter Fic Breakfast in Bed by [livejournal.com profile] tresa_cho (R, Remus/Sirius)- *v-ing warning!* This was written for the Sirius/Remus Fuh-Q-Fest. Once in a while there's a story like this that I can not only stomach (pardon the pun) but that I actually really like. This is a short story in which the Slytherins are very, very mean to the Marauders and take it out on Remus. Lucky for my favorite werewolf that Sirius is very caring and attentive.

Harry Potter Fic/Podcast episode: Henry Fischer's Enchanted Mailbox by AlexG2490 (12+, Gen)- I discovered this story in the form of a podcast! You can hear it (and other stories) on the HarryPotterFanfiction.com Podcast. It's not a typical h/c story, to be fair. It's more humor than anything else. But the general idea of the story is that one day, when muggle Henry Fischer just happens to be home with a cold, a letter shows up in his mailbox from Harry Potter. Why? He lives in NUmber 11 Grimmauld Place and number 12, naturally, has no muggle mailbox. I think it's a fascinating look at the story from a muggle pov (even if it veers from canon) and is filled with quite a few laughs as well. Listening to it was almost like re-discovering Harry and his adventures again through new eyes! But I mention it here because, yes, Henry just so happens to have a cold and that certainly helped me enjoy the story *G*

Torchwood Fic: Sick Day by Taurenova (PG-13, Jack/Ianto-ish)- This was recommended to me last week by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] _la_mysterieuse and, boy, do I love it! Poor Ianto is sick and called in to hold down the fort while Torchwood is out on an important case. Naturally, things aren't easy for him. And, naturally, Jack drops some innocent enough hints *G* I love this story so much that I just want to hug it.

DRABBLE- Comfort Me by [livejournal.com profile] styxion- Awwwwww. This is a tender, sweet and heartbreaking drabble about a hockey player who's been eliminated from the playoffs. It just might be my favorite drabble ever!

I really need to update this journal more.

HP ART: The Curse of the Were-Flamingo by [livejournal.com profile] _minks (click on preview image for full comic)- Awww poor widdle Ronikins! LOL!
hcrecs: (Default)
I thought I might list out some of my favorite essays on the subject of H/C. I find it interesting to read others' thoughts about a genre I adore.

To start, there's... Hurt/Comfort: a Confession and a Celebration by Renae- A nice, personal essay explaining in great detail what it is about h/c that appeals to Renae. Several different fandoms and examples are used to paint the picture. I found myself nodding a lot while reading this. I read it for the first time years ago but it's timeless.

Theories on Why People Write Hurt/Comfort Fic by [livejournal.com profile] thelana- A very nice listing that include many/most of the reasons people write h/c. I certainly fit into most of these categories! LOL

We Always Hurt the Ones We Love by Lucy Gillam- Similarly, this essay poses possible theories (3 of them, in lovely detail) about why people enjoy writing h/c.

RE: Hurt-Comfort and reader crushes- This is a follow-up sort of post/thread but I enjoyed it enough to make a note to revisit and re-read it. Regarding the Harry Potter fandom specifically, the author looks at various characters and reasons readers write them into h/c situations (or not) and if that might be why readers/writers enjoy the characters so much.

When Bad Things Happen to Good Characters by Lucy Gillam- This time, Lucy looks at the sorts of h/c which don't work for her. She looks at several examples from different fandoms and hits on a lot of points I've thought of as well (such as the practically unrealistic repeated, violent hurting of a character, or the extent of the extreme hurt). This is certainly very subjective, but it's definitely the sort of thing that makes you think about what you do and don't like in h/c.

On the Borderline by Shomere- Short but meaningful article which brings up the brilliant point about how often h/c and slash walk hand in hand... but that relationship should not necessarily be implied or expected or analyzed (unless you're reading my stuff and then even gen h/c can easily come out as slash- LOL!)

The Origin, History, and Correct Definition and Use of the Fannish Term "Smarm" by Kitty- Similarly, this longer essay addresses the term "smarm" and its relationship (accurate and perceived) with the terms "slash" and "hurt/comfort". This was a very interesting read for me.

Why Does Obi-Wan Get All the Pain in TPM H/C Fic? by Alias Solo- I very much enjoy this essay, because I write far more hurt!Obi than hurt!Qui (maybe 80:20?). Personally, I think the appeal to me is that I'm such a Ewan fangirl and (as the younger and less experienced) I see him being the weaker and needing his master to take care of him in a traditional padawan & master situation. But I do adore Qui and I love hurt!Qui even more, so this essay made me think a lot about the M/A list and the collection of fics in the online fandom.

Last and least is A Writer's Life: Hurt/Comfort by Lee Goldberg- An interesting POV from a writer of TV show tie-in novels who has a brush with a hurt/comfort fan. I tend to disagree with Goldberg... which is sad because I love Monk and would gladly buy Goldberg's books if he wasn't such a jerk sometimes about fanfic and people who read/write fanfic. Anyway, I thought this was still worth noting here.

FIC: Company (Starsky & Hutch, PG) by K. Hanna Korossy- What is the one thing that a sick partner needs? Awwwwwwww! So nice. I love their interactions here and how sick!Hutch is described. They're so comfortable and natural around each other... and yet the h/c still comes out loud and strong. This is just lovely. I highly recommend everything K. Hanna Korossy writes. Downtime... Comfort's Cost... A Textbook Case... just read everything, seriously: http://www.korossy.org/khk/

FIC: Cold (The Man from UNCLE, I/N) by Julia Justina- He’d stopped shivering a while ago, that was bad. He knew all about hypothermia How much do I love hypothermia fics? MUCH! Men being desperate to keep each other warm... what's not to love? This has wonderful slash and Illya-whumping :-)

FIC: Fever (The Man from UNCLE, I/N, R?) by Kate D.- "I am not a stray puppy," Illya said stiffly. "And I am quite capable...."
The other two exchanged commiserating glances. "I'll take the stray Russian home with me," Napoleon said with a grin.
YUM! Yes, just: YUM! Every bit is light and lovely yumminess. See my previous comment about men keeping each other warm... especially when it leads to... *sigh* Such absolutely yummy h/c.

FIC: A Day in the Life of Illya Nickovetch Kuryakin (The Man from UNCLE, G) by Deb- Illya allowed himself the luxury of a flash of genuine indignation that he was always the one to get dirty, wet, hurt or saddled with a cold while Napoleon generally sailed through missions looking like the cover of Esquire. Guuuh. Ohhh yes. Illya all sick and sneezing but going on with the mission anyway. GOT to love it.

A few HP recs I've been meaning to post...

ART- Sick Voldy by [livejournal.com profile] vikingcarrot- Okay, this one's strictly for laughs (or terror, depending on one's imagination and one's perception of Voldemort's nose). But, at any rate, it's a version of Voldemort with a head cold.

ART- After Quidditch by [livejournal.com profile] myrafur- Harry all sore and bruised after playing a rough game of Quidditch. Awwwww! *wants to snuggle*

ART- Crying Harry by [livejournal.com profile] myrafur- Okay, so I don't really see the GI Joe connection but the point is: awwwwww! Harry's crying! :-(

FIC- Picking Up The Pieces by Annie (Starsky/Hutch, NC-17)- This is the definition of yummy for me :-) It follows a rather typical plotline (that I am certainly guilty of following in several stories, myself) but the overpowering hurt/comfort elements and adorable characterizations really save this. The hurt at the beginning is wonderful- it's got all the elements that I adore. And when the comfort portion comes around, it does so with understanding and emotion and hot hot sex. Who could ask for more?

FIC- By Candlelight by Annie (The Sentinel, Jim/Blair, FRM)- Squee! I don't even know this fandom, apart from a few fanvids and fanfics, but this is sooo right up my alley. This is so my idea of romance... and so absolutely adorable. I especially love the touches, the kiss, the sneeze, and the dialogue that follows. "Ah crap," he says huskily as he sits up, wiping a hand under his nose. "Sorry, big guy." *dies with happy* Even if you don't know TS, this is sooooo worth a read. Because it's delicious and adorable and at the height of numminess!

A few more HP recs...

[livejournal.com profile] tinadp rec'ed this to me a while ago, and I've been meaning to do so here as well:
Abner of Astlegate's Most Splendid Pox by [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon (Remus/Sirius, PG-13)- Awwwww! Da puppies are never cuter to me than when one is sick (unless it's when both are, maybe). The beginning with Remus sick and sleepy is just to die for. But Sirius' inability to understand the situation initially... and the oatmeal bath are just hilarious. This is a wonderful read and I'm happy to pass it on as a rec!

These two were posted on the SBRL Yahoo List but also have LJ links, thankfully:
Creature Comforts by Rhea Silvia ([livejournal.com profile] lupa_larentia) (Remus/Sirius, NC-17)- How much do I LOVE the "character has nightmare and gets scared and goes to sleep in another's bed" scenario? Muchly. Especially when there's so much lovely comforting and the lovely comforting turns into lovely sex between my favorite OTP :-) This is a great fic.

Lies that were never told by Kettle ([livejournal.com profile] trailingoff (Remus/Sirius, R)- Guuhhhh! This is beautiful. Okay. The whole thing revolves around Remus' handkerchiefs so I was probably predisposed to like it. But I really like it. It's beautifully written. Little bits of Remus & Sirius told over the years, happy Marauders, poor PoA Remus... *sigh* This is definitely a must-read packed full of nummy hurt/comfort and everything else I love to see where Remus & Sirius are concerned.

[livejournal.com profile] symphonyflute just sent me this rec and I couldn't resist sharing.

FIC- What I'm Here For (Roger/Mark) by lovablegeek (Aubrey)- I usually get totally nervous about characters with HIV/AIDS getting sick... and I would never go as far as shipping Roger/Mark because I'm true to RENT canon (even though something in the back of my head is dying to do so and I couldn't have been happier at their hug in the movie) BUT, even with all that, I absolutely ADORED this story and everything about it!
The dynamics are adorable, the characterizations are fantastic (I SO love motherly!Mark and sick&in-denial!Roger is to die for), and the deeper theme in here is just so brilliantly presented. This fic is a perfect example of why I love h/c's.

Okay, yes, I rec more HP than anything else because I read more HP than anything else. I'll admit that. But I just read this and had to rec it before I completely lost the link to the long list of things I want to rec.

Bed Rest by Anj ([livejournal.com profile] rosesanguina) (Sirius/James, NC-17)- Guuuhhhhhhhhhhh! Or, rather Nnnnnnnnnnngh! This has sick, dramaqueen!Sirius in it- which is my absolute favorite incarnation of sick!Sirius. But not only that, it has both James and Sirius being arses (or wankers, rather) and a bloody brilliant (and terribly hot) method of shutting up complaints. Ohhhh yes. I like muchly! To quote the fic: Sick or not, he was still sixteen, and still ridiculously horny... This is exactly how I love to read Sirius/James when I read them, right down to the last touch and the last playful insult. This was fantastic. Humorous and hot and pure perfection. *sigh*

Puddin' Love by Fiendling is an adorably fluffy story in which Ron is sick and Harry attempts to feed him some pudding *G*

A Most Unusual Student by Alkari is a great, long Remus WIP told from the perspective of Madam Pomfrey. Currently it spans years 1-5. As far as H/C's go, I think Madam Pomfrey is terribly underutilized so I was pulled into this story immediately.

Under Me, You by [livejournal.com profile] kasche is a fantastic piece of art featuring Remus and Sirius being all clingy and huggy. *snuggles*

Harry Potter and the Polka Dot Plague by Mariner is a great humor piece about, you guessed it, a polka dot plague called Skittles. Poor Harry! And I'll even throw in a Poor Snape! since I read this before HBP. The summary says it best, though: Harry Potter discovers why polka dots are evil. Snape discovers why it's a bad idea to forge your medical records. Lucius Malfoy discovers why you shouldn't give suprise presents to your boss.

I adore hurt-werewolf!Remus fanart to pieces. So here are some (mostly Remus/Sirius) hurt/comfort fanart pieces I really like:

Visiting Remus by Marta ([livejournal.com profile] seviet)- I know I've mentioned it before, but I still adore it *snuggles*

Helplessness and Shelter from the Storm by Ponderosa ([livejournal.com profile] ponderosa121) are two of my favorite pieces by Ponderosa- though I love pretty much everything Pondy does. I can stare at these forever and get that lovely comforting feeling, though.

After the Full Moon by Linnpuzzle is such a lovely piece of Remus being helped by his fellow Marauders. Linnpuzzle's work is gorgeous, but I especially love this piece. As well as the older, professor Remus taking his Wolfsbane.

Remus hurting by Wenz- can be found at SBxRL. It's an interesting style, with some very bold color choices. But I love poor Remus' position and expression. And Sirius all concerned and looking at Remus crotch- ah, arm. Yes, his arm. That's it.

MWPP in the Shrieking SHack by glockgal ([livejournal.com profile] glockgal)

Remus/Sirius (slight nudity) by Ariel ([livejournal.com profile] blacksatinrose) is a fantastic piece. Dark and bright, smooth and bold. But those hands *swoons* I love this piece

Helping Remus Up from this site is an adorable picture of Sirius and James fixing Remus after his transformation. Note- the page seems to be down... I don't know if that's permanent or temporary.

Found by firefly_wp ([livejournal.com profile] ac1d6urn) is not strictly hurt/comfort but I definitely get that vibe from the picture. Remus and Sirius' expressions are so pained and desperate-looking. It just says desperate and cold and clingy.

Time by Hélène Bruneton ([livejournal.com profile] nassima) is a Remus/Sirius piece and also not strictly hurt/comfort but definitely has a nice vibe to it :-)

Okay, and not R/S but still HP... and not exactly h/c but I have a lot of related thoughts while looking at:
This pic of Harry by Akiko Just that expression and oohh he's so huggable!

Today I was skimming through my saved SF stories folder which is horribly outdated (mainly because I wanted to read solitaire_au's Stargate fic, but I didn't get that far in the list). Anyhoo, I spent practically an hour reading Going Goth(ADULT!) by Cath UK. Not only because it's long and I was doing two other things at the same time, but because I kept pausing to make comments to the story/characters out loud. And about halfway through I decided that meant I should probably rec it here :-) Particularly as they were mostly rather good comments ;-)

I've always admired the heck out of this story. The characters are absolutely incredible and... real. They feel very real to me. And the culture is entirely too accurate and adorable. Every so often I get a plot bunny biting to do a smoke-allergy fic and then this story ALWAYS pops up in my mind. Those clove cigs... oohhh. SUCH a lovely plot device. Everyone always says smell is the strongest trigger to memory, and I can practically smell this story. So wonderful, that.

The writing is fantastic. And not just because I've a weakness for British slang *EG* I love the multiple perspectives- it brings SO much to the story. It gives the story so many layers and allows the reader to think from all those different views at the same time. I love the overlaps, and I love the moments of revelation to the reader from one view or another- excellent choices, all. Very creative. Very brilliant. It allows for the repetition of some things and keeps others a bit of a mystery for the reader to think about. Brilliant.

The sex... ohhhh the sex. The fetish elements are fantastic, as befitting a story told in first person. Two of the three characters have the fetish and, thus, their descriptions and observations are quite delicious (and, yet, the variation between the two is fresh and nummy). And the other character is able to provide readers with a first-hand account of the sneezes from how they feel to how he feels about them. His shyness coupled with their candidness (at least to themselves/the reader) about how the sneezes turn them on makes for quite a delicious tale indeed. He was just focused on trying to give the impression he was listening, when all he was noticing was what was going on inside his nose. I could see his eyes going glassy, and the effect was made even more alluring by the liner he wore. He’d been sneezing a bit already that night, like I said, and his eyes were kind of teary, like he was going to cry. Very sexy. I'll say! *G* The story is full of great juxtipositions like that. Not to mention that the sneezes sound fantastic... and the description is quite original. I tried to ignore it, to pay attention to what she was saying, but it was like the inside of my nose was liquefying. I could feel it was just a matter of time before it overflowed and I exploded all over the place with sneezes. It was as if tendrils of smoke were working their way inside me, tickling everything in sight, driving me mad. I'm not even one for the more "liquid" side of things but there's something about this part that always gets to me. Oh, and I'm MORE than happy to see this particular line repeated several times: “Sorry, gotta- gotta-... Hiessshhh!” *dies*

But the characters... gods, I cannot get enough of the characters. Cath writes them so wonderfully; they're all full and deep and diverse. Lovely. But I must admit I side with Paeyl the entire time, no matter what. I totally want him. Even if it is Raevyn doing all the sneezing, and even if he's technically gay, I still want Paeyl. I think it's because I definitely see a lot of myself in him.

My only complaint is the ending. I love the sex- all of it. I really do. But, like I said above, I side with Paeyl, so I felt very un fulfilled by the ending. And when I finish reading this story every time, I can't help but yearn for a resolution that involves him. I feel hurt when he gets hurt and I never fully recover with the story ending the way it does. But maybe that's just because perky, controlling bats bug the heck out of me, too.

Nonetheless, this is one of my favorite original character fics out there.

Because I'm in such a visual mood today... I thought I'd rec chatenoire's Alonia comic series which is an adorable story with fantastic characters and some breathtaking art. As someone who is crap at all things artistic, this really fascinates me :-)

A forty-three page graphic story revolving around one of my favorite H/C situations ever- "sick and stuck out in the snow". It follows two (of a great big bunch from her universe!) very well developed original characters who, well, don't like each other much- another wonderful thing to see when it comes to plots. Vivian and Dylan clash but work together in great and sometimes amusing ways. And Vivian's soft spot for Dylan when he's sneezing... awwwwwww. I can't blame her! He's so very adorable when sick and sniffly and miserable. The story itself is clever and beautifully told.
