I'm a Wesley slut so expect quite a few stories to be Wesley paired with someone. I'm not particularly picky who. Some characters and/or fandoms I just don't have a pairing loyalty to. Others I do. Buffy/Angel is one I can go with alot of different pairings.
and Mrs. Bickerson by Shrift
Before I start the
rec, would anyone mind if I just made a little comment here. Actually,
it's more of a question that's been bugging me. What in the fuck is
up with Wesley's hair this season? It's started to look better in the
last few eps. So I think at the beginning of the season it might have been
some transition thing of Alexis (Denisof, actor who plays Wes) growing
it out. Still, I wish they would fix it. He was among People's 50 most
beautiful people this year, that was before they saw that hair, I'm sure.
Ok, rant over. On to the rec now. I just love this story. Who could resist
a story with a title like that. It just begs to be read, so you can see
what it's about. I think Shrift captured the boys quite well in this. I
could really hear Gunn's voice in it. There's a certain routine to the
story that tells you the guys have been together for a while, so it's an
established relationship. I think the guys are just starting to figure
out that they want each other for more than just a buddy fuck. Starting
to care, but no one makes any great protestations of love. I don't think
they are at that point just yet, but getting there. Sort of a glimpse part
way into the relationship. After the beginning, when everything is settling
into comfortable, but close enough to the point where the "I love you's"
should be popping up. There's some sexy scenes of just making out, hot
sex scenes, and in between just everyday relationship stuff. Shopping,
watching tv, killing demons you know the everyday stuff of being in a relationship
that we all experience. Ok, minus the demon fighting, what we all go through.
The stuff that tells you if you can stand having this person in your space
a good chunk of the time. Letting you figure out if it's going somewhere
or not. I really liked that aspect to it. The guys just trying to get on
with their lives and see where they are going with this thing between them.
A great fic, that explores that really well. I just love Wesley slashed.
Mmm...Wesley. I will seek out much more of it. Trust me on that.
and Water by Kath
a shower. All sleek, soapy, and slippery then 'oh, my' who should show
up to join him, but Gunn. Now there is an image that will fuel several
happy thoughts for me. This isn't much more than a PWP, a damn good one
too. Mainly, the story is about just when you resign yourself to not getting
what you want something comes along and changes all that. Sometimes you
have to be bold, take a chance, throw a little caution to the wind. Test
the boundaries and stop assuming that things are a 'certain way'. Sometimes
you never know until you ask, whether with words or actions. Sometimes
you just have to make a move to alter things. Have a little hope that it
will be for the best. Things get to a boiling point sometimes and you can't
help, but make an attempt to change things. Sometimes it's for the best
and you get the reaction that you hoped for. The story's really not all
that angsty, but this short fic packs alot of meaning. I really just stumbled
upon it when I saw it on an update, I was happy that I had. It's an enjoyable
read, filled with a great deal of passion. Going to go read it again, just
for the heck of it.
This is the second
story by Shrift I've rec'd this update. There's a Sports Night story by
Shrift and Nestra I'm rec'ing over on the Miscellaneous
page too. I just keep finding fics of hers/his? (don't want to presume)
that I like lately. This one starts out with Gunn messing with Wesley's
glasses. I've worn glasses for ten years, you have no idea how annoying
it is when someone messes with them if you've never had to wear them. So
I was sympathizing with Wesley there. In this one Wesley has been hiding
his attraction to Gunn for quite a while, because he doesn't want to lose
his friend. In an unguarded moment Gunn accidentally discovers how Wes
feels about him. Not through anything Wes says, but a look he's able to
read all to well. Gunn freaks a little and Wes figures he's lost his friendship.
Little angst ensues there. (Like that's ever a bad thing.) Everything manages
to work itself out in the end though. This story is really just a PWP,
but a darn good one. The sex has a slow build up to it that hints of this
being more than some one night stand. Where it goes from here is an open
question. I really liked this one. It's short, but doesn't have alot of
angst to it and has the happy ending thing going on. I've so needed some
happy endings lately. Thoroughly enjoyable.
we last met by James Walkswithwind
Note: I just found that the Big Guns archive has moved. When I went to go update the links to it on my pages, I found a finished version of this story there. So I've updated the rec with a link to the completed fic, that's all in one neat little file (instead of several parts). It's finished so no more cliffhangers leaving us hanging, thank goodness. I really wanted to know what happened. Now I do.<g> *sigh* Such a sweet ending. I'm a big romantic sap, so sue me.
At first, I just thought
this was a really cute, sweet story. I really liked it and knew I was going
to rec it pretty much by the time I had gotten to part 2. Was in fact working
on the links before I got to part 3. It has a really great humor to it
that isn't forced and just catches you out of no where. Alot like the show
can. I kept reading and I kept liking it. I almost forgot about a little
seed of plot that had been placed in the first chapter, then came part
9. I was just reading along, enjoying myself, and then that little plot
seed took root and started to come together. Suddenly, I was getting hooked
on this story, I was really wanting to know what was going to happen next.
Beyond were Xander and Graham going to have sex again. (Though on the sex
side it's tame really.) I was really wanting to know what came next. Then,
wouldn't you know we were left hanging at part 12. Dammit. Right at the
part where things were coming together, and the question that had been
hanging since part 10 was going to be revealed, James just cut us off.
I'm so not happy about that, because I really want to know what happened
next. Yes, I'm whining. I got all caught up in this thing and then *cliffhanger*.
To be continued, I'm presumming/hoping. I always hate when it says To
be continued at the end of a tv show. Drives me nuts. I know I'm not
revealing much plot here, but if I gave you the set up it would spoil it.
You'd really enjoy it better if you find out what's going on in the story
for yourself. Oh, I will say, that if your wondering who Graham is? He's
one of Riley's Initiative buddies. Dark haired and cute, really cute. You
should see the pic of him at the Big
Guns Archive (all Graham slash). Totally hot, it's right on the front
page. You can't miss it. The plot build up to this one takes it's time.
It really just hits you when James decides it's time to let that plot seed
develop. I'm so looking forward to more of this story. I hope more gets
posted soon. No, I'm not whining. This time I'm pouting. It's very pretty
Tiger, Hidden Dragon by Kath
This one isn't really
much more than a PWP. In it Wesley talks Gunn into going to a movie with
him. Want to guess which one? Just look at the title. Gunn likes the movie
well enough, but he likes spending time with Wesley more. It seems to make
him hyper-aware of his friend in this one and just sends him right over
the edge of wanting him just so badly. He at least manages to make it to
the car before pouncing and ravaging him. Not that Wes is complaining.
Not in the least. More like moaning in ecstasy. Hell, I can't blame Gunn,
Wesley is just too hot. I am such a Wesley slut. I totally admit it. I
love seeing him hot and wanton. This story really did it for me in that
respect. Kath said this was her first experience in doing a story from
Gunn's POV. She seemed a little worried, hoping she got it right. I could
hear Gunn's voice pretty good there, so I'd say she did just fine. Captured
him well. I really liked this one. Why don't you check it out. You just
Came, We Sang by Shrift
Another hot and sexy
PWP. I told you I'm a Wesley. I like seeing him get fucked or fucking someone
in any manner or position either party would like. (As long as it's somewhat
vanilla, I don't like the darker stuff.) This one picks up right after
Angel fires Wes, Gunn, and Cordy. It's a Gunn POV thing. Where we follow
them to the bar and watch them get blindingly drunk to not just drown their
sorrows, but kick them while their down. So they drink way to much, sing
some really bad karaoke, hen in the midst of it Cordy has a vision, and
they go kick some demon ass. Afterwards, Gunn takes an injured Wesley home.
You want to guess what goes on then? Do I really have to say it? I already
mentioned it was a PWP. That should clue you in enough. Ah hell, I just
like saying the word, so I'll say it. SEX. They have sex, really hot sex.
Wesley the one on top. Which is hot enough in it's own right. I love seeing
Wes fucked, but the only thing better is when he gets all aggressive and
takes charge. Gotta love that in a guy. Well, that's about it. It's a PWP
what do you want. It's well-written. Like it would be here if it wasn't.
So just go read it. It's a hot little piece that will set your screen on
Question of Style by Janete
This is a great little
Janete piece where Wesley ponders about friendship. About what it means
to have friends. About the fight they all face against the darkness. How
their group in L.A. differs from the Scooby Gang in Sunnyhell. Friendship
is the main theme of this one, even with the hot sex. It is still the closeness
of his friends that Wesley is pondering here. How for the first time really
he has some very good friends. People he is close to. Not lovers or peers,
but friends. They may all come from different backgrounds, but they have
all come to care and respect one another. Been able to see past their differences
and find the commonalties among them. Their shared goal in devoting their
lives to fighting evil only a stepping stone to becoming close friends.
A way for them to see past all crap that makes them seem so far apart.
I liked how Wesley and Gunn had gotten so close on the show. Seen one anothers
strengths and really become good friends. It was sweet in a way. They didn't
know what to make of one another at first, but they became close friends.
You feel that in this story the closeness that they've come to share. There
is also an added heat that I really liked. It all starts to come together
when Gunn is hurt in a fight and Wesley take care of his wounds. Seems
to be a recurring theme, but then they probably do need patched up alot
on the show after some of those battles. You can just imagine where things
go from there. The story flows really sweetly and takes it's time. Builds
the heat up slowly and gently. Till it's just overflowing. I really liked
this one. Knew I had to rec it right after I read it. This story sent me
trolling for more Wesley slash, which led to the other two recs here. This
is truly another fabulous one by Janete here. Definitely worth checking
out if you like Wesley slash.
This is basically
just a PWP where Gunn ponders what exactly is going on between he and Wesley.
Not a lot of graphic sex in here. More Gunn thinking about what he and
Wesley are doing. Why are they fucking like bunnies? At first,its one of
those life affirming things they sort of stumble into doing after a battle.
'We won! Good god let's fuck so we can really and truly feel like we made
it out alive.' That sort of thing. Then he starts to show up at Wesley's
when he has no excuse like that. He just wants to be with him and he doesn't
exactly know how to put it into words. Wesley is as confused as he is,
not really knowing what Gunn wants from him. In the end I think Gunn just
starts to realize he wants Wesley. He likes him and wants him. Wesley feels
the same. You get a feeling that maybe there was something underlying that
caused them to turn to each other those first times after the battles.
That they might have been harboring a desire there and the after battle
interludes were just a way to express that. Who knows really though? Ask
Gunn maybe he's figured it out by now.<g>
by Jane St. Clair
Pairing: Wesley/Spike, Wesley/Angel implied
The last time I was
on Jane's page was when I think I developed my Wesley slut issues, with
her Restaurant Dogs Series (which you can find a rec for below). I was
back over at her page browsing around to see if anything was new when I
decided to give her other Buffy & Angel fics a try. Like I've mentioned
I like to see Wesley fucked by just about anybody. I'm not real picky about
whom. So I thought 'what the hell?' I'd give her Wesley/Spike stories a
try. The first one is really just a set up for the second. Not much really
happens in it except a chance meeting and well...read it for yourself,
you'll find out. The second one picks up some time after that and isn't
much more of a PWP. After reading some of Jane's Wesley fics I think I
can finally pinpoint what bugged me about the eps where Faith appeared
on Angel. That she tortured the shit out of poor Wesley, who held up under
that admirably by the way, and she got the poor baby treatment from Angel.
He spent more time taking care of poor evil Faith than giving a shit about
the fact that Wesley had to be hospitalized after that probably. Angel
is so not Mr. Sensitivity here. I understand that he could relate to Faith,
but from what has been mentioned on the show I think he could probably
relate to Wesley when it comes to problems with fathers. Thankfully they
addressed that in a later ep where Wesley got shot. Angel shows up and
Cordy calls him to task about 'Why?'. Telling him to just get out, they
didn't need him. This story has some Wesley angst about how he has no idea
what Angel wants from him. Spike in this one really just wants to claim
something before Angel has a chance to. Conquer some territory before his
Sire does. (Though technically his Sire was Dru, why he kept saying it
was Angel for so long I don't know, guess the writers don't either.) No
real promises of love here, just an extremely hot interlude that is really
just about going with your desires. Letting go and maybe both of them getting
back at Angel a little bit. I think they both have an understanding of
Angel not living up to their expectations. Both of them punishing him in
some way for who they wish him to be that he just isn't and probably will
never be. I don't know what it is about Wesley that gets me so hot when
I read a description of that lovely Englishmen getting fucked. It's not
even that I think he is a total bottom. I think he could top, he would
just have to be offered first. I don't think he quite has it in him to
ask to do it. That he has the self-esteem to push for it or if he could
get around that proper English attitude long enough to voice that he wants
it. Not that I mind. I like the idea of Wesley being fucked, who knew.
I like him slutty. I can just so see that hidden under that repressed exterior.
take you in by Jessica Walker
Note: The story is really long and in several parts so look for the links in the frame on the left side of the screen to continue. Look for where it says next part.
Warning: Only a teeny one really. Mention of past abuses, but not to graphic. Not really going into great detail. Also, blood as lube. Not gross like raping tearing. More like a bite on the neck, let the blood run down the back and so forth. Oddly sexy in an Anne Rice kind of way. Didn't squick me and I hate it when writers uses spit for lube. I usually prefer the more conventional water-based market brands in stories. You'll have to decide though. The sex is consensual when they use the blood for lube, no violence in it. Sort of the point of the scene, 'we can do this easily without pain for once'.
This whole story is
about trying to gain some penance really. Angel trying to make it up to
Spike for all that he did to him in the past. This one is a sort of 'What
if Spike had shown up at Angel's door after his run in with the Initiative
instead of Buffy's?' It takes you through why Spike would come to him and
why Angel would take him in. (Before I forget this was before we found
out that Dru was Spike's Sire instead of Angel. Why the writers insisted
it was Angel for so long guess we'll never know. Lovely of them to change
their minds after several seasons.) Guilt is the main motivator for Angel.
There is so much pain in his past that he has caused people, which he can
never make up for. So much he did to both Spike and Dru that is done and
he can't take back. He wants to make it up to Spike, though he isn't even
sure why. Spike has done so much to him, he wonders if he's sane. Still
he needs to do something, have a chance to change things with Spike. A
chance for a new relationship with him, a new beginning. We see a different
version of Spike before his transformation than TPTB showed us. I must
say I kind of like Jessica's version better. Spike wants help from Angel
I think because he feels he was owed it. Also, he loves Angel as much as
he hates him. He just wishes things were simpler between them. Which Angel
has to figure out. In the end I think it is about forgiveness and a shot
at changing something that you really fucked up. Making a change in your
life, your relationships while you still can. Oh, that pesky can't have
a moment of pure happiness thing? Well, we learned with Darla that if he
isn't truly happy when he is fucking someone he gets to stay all souled.
Same with Spike here, he isn't perfectly happy with him. He's just close
enough. How the hell is anyone ever perfectly happy, anyway? Must have
been some fuck with Buffy that first time. Him being able to forget centuries
of angst for one moment. For a virgin she must have really been talented,
or he was just really hard up after a century or so dry spell. Maybe he
was just thrilled to be getting some again.<g>
Photographs by Saber ShadowKitten
Note: This story is in several parts so remember to follow the links to the next piece at the end of each section.
This is probably the
first Spike/Angel fic that I have truly loved. I think I knew I was going
to rec it a couple of parts in. It is truly sweet and shows a part of Angel's
demon side that is unexpected, but I found believable. We get to see Spike
before he was turned, not that freaky one that was shown to us on Buffy,
but yet one similar in some respects all the same. An innocent young man
who is teased and taunted that strangely enough touches the demon within
Angel, touches Angelus really. We find that Angel may have only loved one
person, Buffy. Yet, Angelus the demon only loved one person too, a young
human by the name of William Tanner, who would one day become Spike. There
is a bit of a time travel aspect to the story. Tanner (as he prefers to
be called) gets thrust into the future before he ever really met Angel
properly, before he and Angelus fell in love, and before he became a vampire.
Angel then has to decide whether to send the young man back or not. The
past changing is causing Spike, who is off in Sunnydale, to begin to disappear.
He is being erased from the time line the longer Tanner stays. Angel has
to figure out what the right thing to do is, save Tanner from ever becoming
a vampire or send him back and preserve the time line as is. I liked that
the writer brought up the issues of 'would changing the past make things
better or worse?' Spike's atrocities would be removed from history, but
how would that effect all those that have known him since. Angel is also
struggling to deal with the memories and feelings that his demon self felt
towards Tanner. Trying to decide if he has a right to take away the only
love Angelus, and Tanner, ever knew before they even had it. Quite a quandary.
Lots of questions and bitter-sweet remembrances of the past. I thoroughly
enjoyed this one. Knew I had to rec it before I even finished it. A great
little piece that got the Buffy and Angel recs their own little page here.
I have a rule if there are more than 4 recs for a fandom on the miscellaneous
page it gets its own. This one pushed it to five so it got moved. This
is a wonderful story that is nice and long and had me weepy at moments,
but I didn't mind. Hey, if it can get me to shed some tears it usually
gets a rec.<g> I hope you enjoy it because I thoroughly did. I found
a tiny rec for it somewhere else and just had a feeling it would be a good
one. It was. I'm glad I found this gem.
Circumstances & Fractured
by Jessica Walker
Pairing: Angel/ Wesley
I've been wanting
to read some Angel/Wesley slash and today decided I'd see if I could find
some. I stumbled across these after some looking. They are angsty to the
max, I must say, but I love angst so who cares. These stories are about
loneliness and wanting things you can never have. For Angel it is the feeling
of being alive again, being human. For Wesley it's a little more simple,
he wants Angel. Though there's really nothing simple in that at all. The
main thing I liked in this was how Wesley doesn't fool himself. Doesn't
make excuse to himself that this is more for Angel than it really is. He
doesn't lie to himself about what Angel wants and feels for him. He understands
Angel's desires better than Angel does in fact. Being truthful with himself
make it any easier or less painful for him. But it does show a level of
maturity I equate with Wesley quite well. I didn't like Wesley much on
Buffy, but he has become endeared to me on Angel. I like him quite alot.
He isn't as much of a geek as he was when he started out on either show
now. Still a geek, just not as big a geek. He has some hidden pain though
that I find gives him some depth. I'd freaking pay to see them put him
in black leather again. Damn, he was hot dressed like that, almost didn't
recognize him at first. His characterization is pretty good in this, as
is Angel's. I think the hidden aspect of who they both are is shown in
this. Pain and wanting, that's what this one is about. Universal feelings
you can always identify with. Gotta love that.
Dogs Series by Jane St. Clair
I've officially become
a Wesley slut, I realize that now. Just have to find your nitch in a fandom.
Apparently, mine is Wesley/whoever. I wouldn't say I'm opposed to him being
paired with any number of people. Even though, the only ones here are Wes
with Angel and Gunn respectively. I still hate multiple partners and pairings
though, so you won't see that rec'd here. This series by Jane is pretty
much what clued me into the fact that I love seeing Wesley slashed. Hell,
I love seeing him fucked. I must say I agree with a comment Jane made in
the headers of one of these stories. More Wesley naked, Wes naked is a
good thing. I think the only sight that compares in my head to Wesley naked
would be him decked out in leather again. Damn, the powers that be for
teasing us with that and then never letting us have a glimpse of it since.
Gunn is ok on the show, not my favorite character on Angel. I must say
I'm quite fond of The Host, or Lorne as we now know him. (The green guy
with horns who does the mojo spirit reading at the bar.) I like Gunn in
this series though. Like the way he sees Wesley. In this one Jane lets
Gunn see a side of Wes no one else does. I'm talking about more than just
sex there so get your minds out of the gutter.<tisk> Man, Jane
makes Wesley hot in this one. You know every time I say his name I think
of the movie The Princess Bride, which I saw far too many times when I
was about 13 or 14. Anyway. This is a great little series of stories. That
shows a very sensual Wes that I would just eat with a spoon if I could.
I linked you to her Buffy/Angel page, so just scroll down until you find
the listing for them. They aren't hard to find. There are a couple of other
fics there, one a Wes/Angel pairing, I think. I'm sure you'll enjoy these.
I loved them.
Series by Brat Queen
Ok, apparently I'm
a Wesley slut. Who knew? There were clues, though. I just missed them.
Like the first time he appeared on Angel in those leathers I like to have
fell out of my chair. I don't think it was till he spoke that I recognized
him. Man, I would pay to see him decked out in all that black leather again.
I wonder if all of us who find the 'Biker Wesley' look hot could petition
TPTB to have a couple of more eps with him in leather. I don't care the
story line just give me some screen time of him like that so I can drool.
Sorry, I got lost in my lust there. To summarize my slash leaning fall
to Wesley/whoever. So far I've only found some with Gunn and Angel paired
with him that I like. I might be open to others, however. I can see that
already. Spent half the night looking for more Wes slash. Basically, pared
down to it's essence. I like Wesley getting fucked, totally turns my crank.
I'm getting that. See I have a type and he pretty much fits it. Tall, dark
hair, green or hazel eyes ( blue on occasion, brown preferred over that
though), and thin yet muscular. He fits it. That also explains my lust
for David Duchovny and Nick Lea , they so fit that bill too. I bet you'd
like the rec for the story here sometimes wouldn't you? I didn't forget
about it I just had get that out first. The thing I liked about this series
by Brat Queen is that she so had their speech patterns down. I could just
hear Wesley and Angel in my head. I mean I could picture them saying these
things. She has just got a lock how these two speak. I've read so many
stories where I just find myself going, 'Since when do these guys talk
like this'. It isn't obvious sometimes, but others it is just so blatant
you can't miss it. She totally zeroed in on it and caught their speech
patterns. If you want to know how to write dialogue or even monologues
for either of these characters. This is an example of how it is done. I
thought they did jump into I love you a little quick, but it wasn't overly
so. I was so caught up in how well she wrote them speaking I didn't mind.
I could just hear these characters so clearly that I didn't have any trouble
picturing them in my head.
By the Way
Nights by Lori J
This one is short,
just a hot little PWP. You may have noticed me lamenting the lack of Wes
in his leathers on the show. Well, Lori must have loved him in them as
much as I did. She thought he should wear them more often. Thank God! There
is mostly W/A UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension) in here. I love Wes
in this. He decides that if he can't have who he wants (Angel), that doesn't
mean he should sit around pining away for him like a sad little puppy.
He decides to go out, take some time for himself, and have a life. He decides
to be exactly who he wants. That outside of work he is going to be who
he has always wanted to. He is hot too. All cool confidence and bravado.
Taking what he wants from life. I think Wes could be like this if he wanted.
At work he has alot of angst over the job and being adequate for it due
to family and peer issues. Outside of that he could be this guy. Cut lose
and not worrying about who knows who he really is, what his life is really
like. This to me seems like a reaction to stress and a difficult life that
is possible. I just loved Wes like this. He is hot. I love confidence and
passion in a guy. Those are two qualities a guy has to have at least one
of for me to even blink in his direction. I'd prefer both, but take passion
any day, if it's all I could get. Wes has confidence, I'm not sure he has
passion in this, except for his somber boss. I liked him none the less.
He is so totally hot like this. I could see him like this to, he's showed
alot of strength and courage while on Angel, some leadership skills that
he is coming into too. So check it out. It's not very long, but one that
steams. The visualization of him like this is clear and just great. Way
to hot for me. Go read it. If I ever gave ratings, which I never will this
one would fall under the Steamy category.
