Works-In-Progress Reading List (Master List)
First established: 25th June, 2008
Last updated: 21st July, 2013
Warning: Most of these notables are NOT worksafe!

If you're too young or too closed-minded about some of the things you read here, please feel free to leave. If you've got other rec's that are different from what I've got (but are on par in quality, length, and so on) feel free to leave comments. I usually like longer, angstier works, but I'm always interested in a good read ;)

This section outlines fics that I really do appreciate but are unfinished, so if you do intend to read any of these make sure you don't mind the wait! Once completed, fics on this list may or may not end up on the notables list.

Amphierotic Bloodlines33 by Sapphire Smoke ([livejournal.com profile] cuzimastripper) (Bellatrix/Narcissa) (warnings: Lesbian incest, graphic child abuse, dubcon, sex between minors, anorexia nervosa, character death (minor)) (WIP)
"Growing up in the 1960s in a family that expected nothing less than perfection, anything less than such was deemed unfit for a young woman of their status and was punished severely. A house that was classified as 'noble' had dark secrets hidden within those walls, a fear that only the people within experienced. The confusion young girls have growing up was more than intensified in there: it bordered on practically unbearable. This is a story about growing up, about surviving abuse, and about finding salvation and love from anyone you can, even if it’s from the last person on earth you know you should ever hold a deep affection for." Written for NaNoWriMo 2010.

True Blood
The Winning Set by [livejournal.com profile] lil_utterance (Sookie/Pam)

Xena: Warrior Princess

...And Beyond (Part 1 and Part 2) by Silk (uber, unfinished)
A Celtic version of bard meets warrior with tortured past. Although this story has long since been abandoned, I think it's still worth a look. This is one story that could have very well surpassed the superficiality of the uber category easily if the author chose to do so; the background is richly exotic, with an air of mystery. There is also a certain sense that the meeting between the two protagonists signal only the beginning of a larger, more epic journey.
