I read three fics over the last 24 hours, and I loved all three, so here are recs in no particular order:

Feel upon my lips (the taste of you) (1.5k) by i-am-my-opheliac
Beautifully described emotions that keep you at the edge of your seat and you just want them (D&P I mean) to get on with it. It flows so well!!! And to top it all off it's perfect for the Halloween season :candycorn:

if none of this goes anywhere (1k) by templeofshame
This fic just broke me completely? I rarely cry when reading, I cried while reading this. DON'T GET ME WRONG - IT'S NOT ANGSTY. It's just so beautiful in every sense of the word. I have no words, please read it and see for yourself.

liminality (1.5k) by dizzy
This is a fantastic, subtle fic that made me feel a lot. Mandy's characterization is always spot on, and this one has such a bittersweet take on Phil who is lonely (for reasons you wouldn't expect) and finds comfort in Dan. Amazing fic.

A really good WIP has just finished: Shapes and weights to choose by queerofcups.

It's an a/b/o fic where Dan's a sex toy blogger and Phil's a nearly-retired porn star. It talks about a lot of different queer themes and is also super hot.

Virus by Lackless is set in a dark dystopian future where Dan is a hacker who finds some mysterious old technology. The worldbuilding is beautiful and the story is amazing.

I am not sure if this has been recommended before because it's from May, but I just got to read it. (Side note: Where did 2018 go? When did time start passing so fast)

just once to be lifted strong – The_Blonde

Without spoiling anything, expect some
e serious emotions.

Hey guys! I don't have a rec for you yet, but I'm hoping to soon! I saw a really cool post in another fandom I follow compiling a list of everyone who posted a fic for the first time in 2018 to showcase the ‘writers class of 2018.’ This seemed like such a great way celebrate all the folks who posted for the first time in the past year and find some new fic to read, so I thought I could do one for the phandom!

I've made a tumblr post if you want to see the full info there, or reblog to help spread the word. I've also made a google form so people can submit their info to me. I'm just asking for tumblr/ao3/whatever username, a link to a fic they want to self-rec, and the date they posted their first fic. Once I've got all that (ideally by Sunday, January 13th) I will compile it all into one post celebrating the 'phanfic writers class of 2018.'

If you posted your first phanfic in 2018, congrats and please fill out the form if you want to be included! If not, please feel free to spread the word! Thanks! <3
it's a useful thing

Thank you for recommending this, it made me cry my eyes out which was exactly what i needed yesterday (then the cats I'm cat sitting both came and laid on me and that made me cry even more lol).

Another rec while I'm here: to roll with what comes by symmetricdnp. Phil ends up with a soul bond to the handsome barista down the street.

Hiya, I was wondering if anyone has ANY fanfictions written by RamonaSpeaks downloaded - since she deactivated her Ao3 account and has gone private on tumblr, and I quite enjoyed reading them. I keep on making the same mistake of not saving my favourites :| Cheers <3

I know this thread hasn't been active lately, but since most of us are probably stuck inside for a while, I thought I'd link a few of my favorite WIPs:

just find that dappled dream of yours (come on back and see me when you can) by The_Blonde
I have always loved this artthief!dan universe and I never expected to get more, so I am hyped about this one.
https://archiveofourown.org/works/23201 ... s/55542115

If You Don't Love Me, Pretend by phantasticworks
Because I am a sucker for a fake relationship and a sucker for foster parents lol
https://archiveofourown.org/works/22948 ... s/54858211

dancing on the blades (you set my heart on fire) by kishere
Why hasn't anyone written a Yuri!!! On Ice spinoff sooner? It's great.
https://archiveofourown.org/works/22341 ... s/53369662

'til death by waveydnp
It's just so sweet and so realistic yet so crazy
https://archiveofourown.org/works/22114 ... s/52781671

Anyone else got any recs? I'm so bored lol

This is such a stretch, but I've been searching for a fanfic in which Dan and Phil get sucked into the Sims universe. It is not Our Simphany, but I think it was written around the same time. It is somewhat of a Crack fic, and I distinctly remember a section where Dan strips (?) for an audience of Sims. It's a getting together fanfiction!

Hi I'm sure everyone and their dog has read this one, but if the sky that we look upon is ART.....my heART.

That wasn't even a pun but anyway this is your sign to reread :tu:

Its lovely to see my thread survived this whole time <3

Since I'm apparently FULLY BACK IN...

Any good fanfic recs? Anything new that came out the last few years? Preferently either in present times or a complete AU? :)

Oooh I'd love to see some new fic recs too!

I tend to go more for the AU's but some of my favourites bookmarked in the last year or so are;

Time's Tide by Intoapuddle - heartbreakingly lovely 80's AU
https://archiveofourown.org/works/23197 ... s/55532248

Linger on by dizzy and waveydnp - heartbreakingly lovely modern-day AU
https://archiveofourown.org/works/24321 ... s/58635085

Some Other Light by jestbee - just needs to be read tbh
https://archiveofourown.org/works/21123 ... s/50267225

Home for Christmas by dizzy - beautiful and needs a sequel like yesterday
https://archiveofourown.org/works/21632 ... s/51582862

Super soul by waveydnp - probably my favourite take on the soulmate troupe ever
https://archiveofourown.org/works/21920548

And honestly so much more. There may have been a Dan and Phil draught but the fanfiction community stayed strong! I'm also just now realising that I love a lot of angsty fic for someone who usually tries to avoid it :lol:

The Lover Dearest (amnesia) series by dayevsphil is well worth reading (or anything he writes tbh, but amnesia is my favourite)
https://archiveofourown.org/series/1449553

The trope seems like it would be cheesy, but this is amnesia written by someone who knows what they are about, and with first hand experience. Expect angst, but also cute moments.

Lately I have thoroughly enjoyed Inheriting Love by Fictropes, very much feelgood romcom vibes.

And Sparks of light by Judearaya is a gorgeous magical au!

I’m so glad you liked it! 😊 All of daye’s back catalogue is worthwhile!

It occurs to me that if you’ve been out of the loop for a few years, you will have missed the juggernaut that was Monochrome by intoapuddle
https://archiveofourown.org/works/19253134

It is LONG, and ANGSTY but extremely good! There is a print version available and everything. This was one of THE Event Fics of the second half of 2019

Puddle also writes very good E rated fics over a broad spectrum of uh.. specialities, if that is your thing 😳

One of my favorite chaptered fics from the last few months was No Man is an Island from strawberrysunflower (https://archiveofourown.org/works/28404 ... s/69600444). It was beautifully written and had a very strong sense of place and character.

Okay I always avoided this series because I didn't know the writer and thought it would be cliché, but after seeing your rec I gave it a shot and oh wow, my heart has been ripped out and handed right back to me again.
