Update September 2009 - Hey I everyone... I know it's been forever and many of you are wondering when the new site make over will be done. I'm not exactly sure yet, but I will find out what I can. Matt is the only computer genius here, so he is doing it all solo. I will find out what I can. Here's a revamped rec list to help tide you over with some Nick/Greg goodness I have found throughout the years. I added some new favorites I have recently discovered and added new parts to favorite series.. I'm always looking for new stories to add to my list, so feel free to add, and I have a ton more on my computer, some which are no longer posted, so if you're looking for one, let me know.... I or Matt will post with an update soon. Thank you for your patience, and I hope it will be worth the wait.
Oct 2006 - Long long ago, in a different place and time, OK so it was over at TalkCSI, when I had the nickname "The Librarian" because for some reason I had an uncanny way to remember stories, summaries, authors, titles, fic in general. Any of you remember those days before websites and videos and all the other stuff? I first posted this list back in March.
So yesterday, it_glitters
asked me if I had any recs to share, and I'm like, Hell, I have a whole post of them. So, I took them out, dusted them off, and added some more. These are a list of my favorite stories over the past couple of years, and in my opinion, some of the best stories in the N/G fandom. Great writing is a treat and not always easy to find, but these authors have brought it to us, and I just wanted to thank them for sharing their work, and to let others know about it. Some of these writers have been around since before I ever heard of Nick and Greg, and others new in the past few months, but all have written some wonderful works that I love.
Here are my some of my personal favorites and hightly recommend any of these stories for a wonderful read
, if only I could fit them all hereOne Good Man

She wrote it for me, how could I not.Masquerade Series"
written with fred_bear
which is a series where are boys put themselves into interesting sexual situations, hey, but it's all for fun."Greg Sanders, Private Dick Case #1"
and "Case #2" "Case #3
and Case #4 Case #5 Case #6 Case #7
Another wonderful AU taking place in the 1940's about a dead dame who was a dancer, a gentleman's club, a piano player who Red Rose the dancer loved, and run by the local big whig name Mr. Big. I so love this series, and I'm not one for the different time and place AU's, but this is Nick and Greg in there true selves like we've never seen them. Greg the confident and cocky Private Dick, who finds out he has a heart and Mr. Big aka Nickalos Stokes, who cannot seem to resist the temptation that is Greg. This is a fun fic that shouldn't be missed, remember the Greg voice from "Rashomama", oh yeah.

This was rec'd to me by anmani
