ying: jaime reyes and family being fluffy and happy (jaime and family)
It occurred to me this week, while looking for fic in my fandoms featuring characters of color, that weeding through the constant stream of white cock can be a challenge. I'm going to start making a daily or weekly round up of at least five fic recs featuring characters of color in my fandoms.

Fandom: Harry Potter {Cho Chang}
Title: coffee on the prado
Author: [personal profile] lovepeaceohana
Link: http://chromatic-fanfic.dreamwidth.org/25245.html
Content Advisory: N/A

My Thoughts: I liked this fic very much. It does a fascinating job of exploring Cho's feelings of being a person of color in the Harry Potter world. She preened when Diggory sat up and took notice, and pretended not to wonder if he meant because she was Chinese or because she was in Ravenclaw when he laughed and told her, “Of course you did,” because she earned more OWLs than he had.

Fandom: Marvel Comics {Sam Wilson/Steve Rogers}
Title: Growing stronger, warm and wilder
Author: [personal profile] gloss
Link: http://gloss.dreamwidth.org/20508.html
Content Advisory: contains deepthroating.

My Thoughts: Oh, Steve/Sam. My love for Sam Wilson cannot be contained and I wish desperately that there was more of his presence in Marvel fandom. I enjoy this fic very much because it feels like it could be taking place during the original Captain America/Falcon run, the way the characters interact and behave. Steve smelled warm, salty and sour with sweat, exactly like he'd been working outside all day. You stay in school, Sam's mother had told him, scrubbing at the sweat stains on his stepfather's shirts with a pumice stone before adding bluing to the cycle. Don't make a wife of yours work like *this*. :)

Fandom: DC Comics {Jaime Reyes+Teen Titans}
Title: Phenomenon of Sheer Energy
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Mara
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/12089
Content Advisory: First Person POV.

My Thoughts: I just love Jaime and I love the way this captures his personality. XD Fine. For about five seconds, I was standing in the middle of El Paso stark naked. Happy now?

Fandom: Stargate SG-1 {Teal'c POV, team fic.}
Title: Archaeology
Author: [livejournal.com profile] penknife
Link: http://penknife.livejournal.com/507018.html
Content Advisory: N/A

My Thoughts: This is an episode tag to 1x02 "The Enemy Within." I've never been in SG fandom, really, because fandom's pet characters and ships are not mine. I watched the show until the dreaded Mitchell years, however and Teal'c was always one of my favorites. I love his strength and confusion in this piece. He really comes across as a complete character, something that SG-1 missed in its fascination with the Noble Warrior stereotype.

Fandom: Marvel {Sam Wilson/Sharon Carter}
Title: After Steve
Author: [livejournal.com profile] caia_comica
Link: http://caia-comica.livejournal.com/97941.html#cutid1
Content Advisory: Unsafe sex

My thoughts: Takes place immediately after Captain America 25. Sharon and Sam are both appropriately broken by their loss. I like that the author captures their friendship and pain that they're both experiencing. "Sharon--" he says, and he doesn't know what he wants to say. I'm here for you, it's okay, we shouldn't do this, please, I'll help you forget-- so he just says "Sharon!" and pulls the jumpsuit off her shoulders as she pulls the zipper down her chest, and looks up as she sits up to pull the whole thing off, boots and all.
