N/G technicolor_8 Greg um nick
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

By geekwriter143, if only I could fit them all here
One Good Man as most of you know is probably by far my favorite Nick/Greg ever, has everything you could possible want, humor, angst, casefile, more angst, and oh yeah, great smut, my favorite Nick/Greg fic ever, and still is!

The Vest Fic Because you have to read it NOW, go run!!!
Rose Tint my World dressing up and bathroom sex.
Absolutely Zero but it's angsty, in every sense on the word, but I just love it, it's hurts it so good, but it really should't be missed because the writing is just outstanding. It is a WIP
Not Even Poets You wanna know why we call it the Fort? Well than read on, another WIP
Curtain and All Greg really does try.
Such Great Heights, which most of you probably won't recognize, what would happen if Greg's two biggest dreams came true, what is he was dating Nick and Sara at the same time? Not a threesome fic, but hot as hell, trust me.

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.

Also by fred_bear

This jem is by robinyj69 at "WMTDB" and Goody over at FF.net
Painful Journey's This is a friendship piece, yes friendship, no smut, no kisses, but I just love this story, and it is one of the best Nick/Greg stories I have ever read, deep friendship, casefile, adventure, angst, and the characterizations are wonderful, post-ep for "Stalker"

How to Catch a Cowboy for Dummies Just a fun little fic.

Kink this one is by it_glitters and Dreama, I forget your LJ name, so please staple it to my forehead.
Some Domestic War Part 1 of the "Accidental Music" Series
You're Just One More Hand Me Down" Part 2. Come on, the name alone makes it look so temping.

This wonderful author was rec'd to me, she has written for other fandoms, but this was her first foray in Nick/Greg and certainly hope first of many by rurounihime
"Twenty-one Breaths" This was rec'd to me by anmani and was I blown away. This is one of the best N/G stories I've read in a long time, and a first time venture for this pairing, believe me, must read. Excellent Nicky angst and charaterization, don't pass this one up.
"Vital Sounds" Post-Ep for Fannsmacking, characterizations of Nick and Greg are so spot on it's scary, and so so wonderful again, a truly gifted writer in our fandom.
"Sea of Vegas" Our first NC17 fic from rurounihime, and wow, it's not just smutty, but powerful and the way she captures Nick is perfection.

chemfishee wrote a three part series that I am completely addicted to, the first one is
Things I Learned Today, followed up by
Things I Wish I Didn't Know, and now it's multi-chapter sequel
Things We Never Expected which weaves a wonderful story about heartache, and loss, and longing into GD, and I so cannot wait for more.
Thought I Saw You In Vegas (Old Habits Die Hard) Absolute perfection in character writing, for the whole team. This is a gem not to be missed. Bittersweet but beautiful.
The Seduction of Neon

Absolutely love these from WMTDB
First Down Football, beer, and fist kisses
On Flirting and Champange Post ep for WSSH, a great first time drunk fic, and what happens when you just can't make it home in time, great PWP

Love these fics by saras_girl, I just finished rereading them actually...
Wet A great little PWP about... you know
Dry A sort of complement to Wet, and just as delicious...
Because, a four tissue fic, at least, one for each page... A beautifully simple fic about what he loved most
After You Were Mine It's my fave, so of course it's horribly angsty, some things never change....

And I'm sure there's more, but these are my stand out favorites, and now I can edit this list at will. I know it probably isn't a lot differnet from the list I gave most of you at Talk CSI, but I tried to be a specific as I could, and and hour and a half later, here it is.
I hope you all enjoy.

I've probably read most of these, but it's nice to have them all in a list.

Aww Greg/Nick. I can't wait till CSI s7!
13th-Sep-2006 11:35 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I used to post and send some out, so I thought, "well this is stupid" for I finally just posted my recs, and that way I can update when needed, and it's handy when I need something quick.

And Season 7, only eight more days. AAAHHHHHH!!!
13th-Sep-2006 11:30 pm (UTC)
Wow! *adds to memories* Thanks! I trust your taste since the first on the list is also my fave!!!
13th-Sep-2006 11:36 pm (UTC)
Ah, thanks, I hope you aren't dissappointed. I will hopefully remember to update more often, as I get to read. It's been a busy summer, so hopefully I'll get to those others soon.
14th-Sep-2006 12:07 am (UTC)
Oh some of my fics are on here. That makes me feel very special!
14th-Sep-2006 12:26 am (UTC)
Well, it's because your fics rock, and you know how much I loved Lab Rat....
14th-Sep-2006 05:09 pm (UTC)
yay, this is great. i love finding huge batches of goodies all in one place!!! thanks for doing this!
14th-Sep-2006 06:55 pm (UTC)
You're welcome. I feel odd thinking that there are just "my favorites" and why would anyone really care what I think, but these are just some of the best ones out there I think, and hope you all like them too. And do you mind terribly if a massage your icon for a while????
15th-Sep-2006 10:18 pm (UTC)
Thanks for letting me link to this! It's a great list.

And *blush* ... my crazy little angst series =D I hope it lives up to expectations.
16th-Sep-2006 12:58 am (UTC)
I am like an original angst whore, really, the angstier, the more heart ache, fighting, knock down drag out's, the better, but of course if they follow it up by hot make up sex, and a happy ending. So, of course the title alone makes me want to read it now!!!!! "Just one more hand me down", the title alone deserves kudo's, I'm trying to get through this Buffy/Angel epic, and I'm like five chapters into "Don't Fence me In" which is fabulous also, I love great family fic, then I'm getting a box of kleenex and not stoppig until all three are down. I so cannot wait to read it. I really try to read as much as I can, but with all the RL shit this summer, so I fully intend to start catching up. And also "Keeping You" and it's sequel, I saw that.

I don't know if you've read any of my fics, but I truly love to write angst, I mean angst angst, I think my fave is "laying in the bed i made" (don't mind the lack of capitals, with this wrist splint, stretching to the shift key just isnt' worth the effort.....
16th-Sep-2006 04:36 am (UTC)
Hey it_glitters, had to start a new thingy, OH OH, you just finished season 3, OMG. I got into Buffy last fall, and I've like been obsessed ever since. If you are a total B/A shipper like I am, you have got to watch Angel Season 1 "I Will Remember You" God I still can't watch it without bawling. If you ever get into Buffy/Angel fic, I have some if the best links. The one I'm reading right now takes places, during season 5 Buffy/Season 2 Angel, drifts into AU, Buffy gets turned, and it's just really really good, and angsty, and smutty, and all soul having/not soul having. But if you love B/A, Ducks is the best, and Indie, and Gia, and Tango, and talk about epics.

OK, back to N/G. For me, I like PWP's that have a dominant Greg, not as in DOM, but Greg takes charge, like my latest "Punish the Wicked" Post Rashomama, and even Hungry. When I first entered the fandom, there were hardly any Nick bottom stories, so I was like, maybe I'll write one. I had never written before, never thought about it. The only fandom I had even been in before was X-Files, just as an avid (ok obsessed) reader. I had 78 binders full of X-Fic at one time, and still have a lot. But I love reading Greg in charge fics. But sometimes, I see a darker side, like "Take what you Will" I wanted something raw, simple, no feeling, and it was totally Nick. It was fun. I like PWP's to have a little plot, usually post ep, missing scene. PWP definitely have a place, just something to let go for a few minutes and enjoy the love.

I've seen the recent PWP series you've been writing, and that is definitely on my too read list, but angst just owns me. I swear, I'm gonna have to make a list to start checking things off I need to read, I've marked them all under my favorites so I could at least keeep track of them. So is "Kink" or "Dirty Mango" series better, in your opinion.???
16th-Sep-2006 05:27 am (UTC)
OK --- so is the deal with B/A -- Is that Angel series starts with Buffy season 4 (as in, I know Angel vamooses at in the season finale of season 3, so then does the Angel series start.) And yes - I will be reading B/A fics I believe, as soon as I get caught up with my N/G reading (and watch more of BtVS and Angel).

I love Nick as the bottom, and actually that's the way I've been writing it since "Keep You" (it technically goes back and forth, but right now I'm heavy on the Nick bottoms). I know that Sarah said when the fandom started there weren't any Nick bottom stories, and I noticed even when I started reading a bit over a year ago, there were very few still.

So Kink v. Dirty Mango... That's a hard one for me because I love Kink since I wrote it with mangojunkie... And then I love Dirty Mango because it's all just smutty one shots with some heart.

So I guess I'll just give you a run down of each to let you know what's going on. "Kink" is based off of a bad porn - so Greg kidnaps Nick and brings him into a world of sex toys and some deviance because Nick is with a cheater and Greg is in love with Nick. It's all about the kinky ways that Greg uses to win Nick over. Mostly extended PWP with a hint of angst and a good deal of emotional conflict.

Dirty Mango started as a series of just smut - but then got added to my smut_69 challenge, so it ranges from general PWP - and all of them (with the exception of one 2 part n/g and one 4 part greg/warrick) can be read indiviually and don't need to be read with anything else.

So... I can't really say which one is better since they are both so different... LOL.
24th-Oct-2006 12:38 am (UTC)
Ooh, this is very handy. Thank you very much!
24th-Oct-2006 01:06 am (UTC)
You're welcome, and I just added several more so you might want to take another quick peek....
30th-Jun-2009 02:15 am (UTC)
Can I just say that I love you for this? I'm new to the fandom so it's hard to figure out where to start, and now I've got this entire list to go through. :) Thanks so much for sharing!
30th-Jun-2009 11:27 am (UTC)
Thanks, sorry it's so old....but if a link doesn't work, let me know... I also have every fic on my hard drive... I'm not anal at all... I swear...
9th-Sep-2010 02:55 pm (UTC) - A Familiar Stranger...
God I used to read all these a few years ago and have a major urge to read this one again except the links not working and I literally can't find it anywhere else! Any chance you are a) still around? and b) have a clue where I might find it?

thanks in advance :)
9th-Sep-2010 09:15 pm (UTC) - Re: A Familiar Stranger...
OK, let's try this a third time.... Yes I'm still around and Matt changed a few things around, but you can still find the A Familiar Stranger Here.. and the rest of What Makes the Desert Beautiful Here.... Hope that helps...
