May Fic Rec Round-up, Part I


Come Get It Boy by jibrailis

Now this is an interesting one. We’ve got sex pollen, car sex, and Harry’s POV, oh my! This Harry is sensible and restrained; he desires Eggsy, but he’s able to compartmentalize it for the most part, so it never tips over to full on pining. As for Eggsy? He knows what he wants.

Besides being incendiary hot, this fic has some great lines.

Harry on himself: Harry takes pride in being simultaneously incredibly deadly and incredibly boring; it’s only Eggsy who lately makes him feel like he needs to make attempts otherwise.

Eggsy on Harry: “I know you’re a ‘confirmed bachelor’ and you cry sometimes when watching Coronation Street. If that ain’t begging to get laid, I don’t know what is.”

And the ending is just delightful. :-)

Discretion (or: Who Likes Short Shorts) by ProdigalQueer

Well, we all knew that Eggsy had some killer thighs.

But seriously, @prodigalqueer​‘s fic is hot and hilarious. Eggsy goes on a mission, kills the mark in an unusual way, and neither Eggsy nor Harry hear the end of it. The dialogue is fantastic and I’m seriously digging the camaraderie between the Kingsman staff; giving each other shit is definitely something that friendly colleagues would do.

Nothing Quirky About It by kissingandcrying

This could’ve been a simple PWP, but @litindecency elevates it with a great Harry voice and some fantastic storytelling to bookend the amazing filth. You really learn a lot about Harry and what makes him tick while he ruminates over Eggsy’s lovely, lovely body.

People Will Say We’re In Love by Damned_Writers

Oh wow. Why aren’t there more Hannibal AUs in Kingsman fandom?

What I enjoyed:

  • Eggsy still feels like Eggsy, not just a Will/Clarice stand-in
  • The interactions between Harry and Eggsy have layers upon layers. Nothing is on the surface. Yes, we have a pretty good idea of what Harry/Hannibal is up to, but what exactly is he planning? And what are his motivations towards Eggsy? I kept parsing each line of dialogue, trying to pick up on each hidden meaning.
  • Everyone here is smart, if a little naive. What bugs me about crime procedurals is that usually the police OR the criminals are intelligent, never both.

we’re only the past by futuredescending

Very interesting character exploration of Harry Hart. How would have Harry turned out if he’d never been recruited by Kingsman? This version of Harry still feels like Harry, but he is a lonelier, more closed-off man than what we see in canon. @futuredescending does a great job of delving into his psychology, complete with giving Harry a compelling backstory. Her descriptions of Harry’s interactions with Eggsy feel fragile and painfully intimate. We can’t help but feel his hurt and embarrassment vicariously and root for him on his journey to his happy ending.

I Say Yes by evil_brainmate

Lovely, sweet and sad. Be warned, though, @oggalahad ends this fic on one hell of a cliffhanger.

This Mortal Coil (Is Actually Pretty Damn Fit) by l_cloudy

What a fantastic AU! l_cloudy inverts the trope, making Harry the perverted angel and Eggsy the resigned demon. The tone is dryly funny, and seriously, the devil (yes, I did that on purpose) is in the details; tidbits like Merlin screwing with London traffic and being promoted as Head Hellraiser as a result, really fleshed out this universe nicely.

The First (A Gentleman Must Always Be Prepared) by ThatGirlOverThere

Incendiary hot. Here Harry is possessive and his desperation is palpable. And his dirty talk? Oooh boy.

The named victims so far:

Georgina Callander, 18

An 18-year-old college student from Lancashire, was the first victim to be identified following the Manchester attack.

Many of her friends have paid tribute to the teen, alongside Runshaw College where she was studying, and a number of celebrities.

“Georgina Callander was a former Bishop Rawstorne pupil studying with us on the second year of her Health and Social Care course.”

Saffie Rose Roussos, 8

She had been at the Ariana Grande concert with her mum Lisa Roussos and sister Ashlee Bromwich when the explosion shook the venue. Her mum and sister were rushed to hospital, but lost contact with Saffie. Saffie-Rose Roussos died from her injuries at the concert on Monday night.

Chris Upton, headteacher at Saffie’s school, said in a statement: “Saffie was simply a beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word. She was loved by everyone and her warmth and kindness will be remembered fondly. Saffie was quiet and unassuming with a creative flair.”

John Atkinson, 28

28-year-old John Atkinson from Bury was the third victim to be identified.

It’s understood that John had been leaving the concert when a lone man detonated a suicide bomb shortly after 10.30 on Monday evening.

Megan Hurley, schoolgirl

It is not known how old Megan was, but earlier this evening the chair of governors at Halewood Primary School said a girl who went to the school had died in the suicide bombing, according to Liverpool Echo.

He added that she had attended with her older brother who was seriously injured.

Olivia Campbell, 15

A heartbroken Mrs Campbell had broken down in tears on ITV’s Good Morning Britain earlier in the day, when her daughter was missing.

She spoke of how she had not spoken to her daughter Olivia since she set off for the event. "I can’t get through to her. I’ve called the hospitals, I’ve called all the places, the hotels where people say that children have been taken.”

"I’ve called the police. There’s no news, I’ve just got to wait. I’m waiting at home just in case she turns up here,” she told the morning program.

Alison Howe, 45 and Lisa Lees, 47

Two mums waiting to collect their teenage daughters after the concert were among the victims of the bomb attack. Their daughters, both aged 15, are understood to be safe.

Angelika, 40 and Marcin Klis, 42

Marcin and Angelika Klis, Polish parents of a student at the University of York, have been confirmed dead after the Manchester attack.

The pair posed for a selfie in the city centre just before going to the concert to pick their daughters up.

Their 20-year-old daughter had posted a plea for help on Facebook after they didn’t contact her following the attack.

The pair leave behind two daughters, Alex and Patricia.

Martyn Hett, 29

Martyn Hett, a Coronation Street superfan who had a tattoo of  Deirdre Barlow on his ankle and with his boyfriend won Come Dine With Me, has been named as one of the dead.

Kelly Brewster, 32

Kelly Brewster was at the concert with her sister Claire and niece Hollie Booth. She died shielding her niece from the blast and leaves behind a young daughter, Phoebe. Hollie has two broken legs but is safe.

Jane Tweddle-Taylor, 51

Jane Tweddle-Taylor had gone to the Arena with a friend to pick up the friend’s daughter. She was a mother of three: “One of the biggest challenges we’ve had is one of my daughters was away travelling in Australia, so we were trying to pick a time to notify her.”

Nell Jones, 14

Her family and friends had posted appeals on social media saying she was missing following the concert. A student at Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School.  She had been recently using crutches after suffering a ligament injury.

These are the 13 out of 22 named victims as of Wednesday, 24th of May at 2pm (GMT)
