Fanfic by Category

Note: To avoid Gossamer author pages being indexed in Google, where Goss is the only option I can find for a story, I’ll link to their search page and provide the author ID after their name for ease of searching. **Beginning November 2018 I’m trialling other methods to link fics and you won’t have to do the author number thing any more.  I’m coming up with some groovy ways to link to stories without any pesky search engines following those links, so as I update the lists I’ll eventually replace the author ID method.**


These lists of fics by category aren’t necessarily a recommendation, but I try to remove any really awful ones I’ve read.  I haven’t read all of them, and my reading has slowed down as I’ve tried to tidy up the library a bit, so the odd non-purposely bad fic may slip through.  However, there are some large lists, such as “First Times”, in which would be impossible to list every story, so special marked categories only include fics I’ve really enjoyed or which were different or memorable in some way.

As these lists are only generated from the fics I like to read, there will be a lot of types of stories I won’t be able to list.  For example I’m not really into historical AUs, slash, threesomes, hardcore BDSM etc, pregnancy, baby or kid fics, so I have too few of those to list.  I don’t like Doggett or Reyes much, and I’ve decided that everything after season 7 is AU, so there’s not a lot after that (unless they’re fixing Carter’s headcanon AU).  It’s pretty much straight MSR or case files, generally smut biased.  I have a penchant for severe angst but I have to counteract this with a lot of stories that have no business being taken seriously.

A note about ratings.

First Times by Trope

All first time lists are Adults Only. 
I’ve started doing lists of between 20 and 30 first time fics at a time under a particular trope.  Unfortunately these don’t lend themselves to the abomination of the propagation of alliteration that was undertaken in the favourite first time lists.

First Times – Recommendations

I’m adding around 50 recs at a time to this list, although the First Fifty contains a number of series which more than double the number of fics in the first list.  They’re a mixture of everything from comedy to angst, from seasons 1 to 7.  My preferences tend to swing between extremes of angst and PWP ridiculousness so be warned.
