Friday fic recs

Only four stories this week, because a few nights I just couldn't find anything I liked before I was too tired to read...

blood on the leaves and blood at the root (1913 words) by theviolonist
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Sons of Anarchy
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Tara Knowles/Jax Teller
Additional Tags: Character Study

You fell in love with him at sixteen, or maybe a better way to say it would be—he fell in love with you at sixteen. He hooked a thumb in your jeans, pulled you close, said "I love you," not a dare but a genuine revelation. In hindsight you should've known right then, because who says it like that when they're so young, like they're afraid their time is going to run out?

Comments: This is so *painful*. Tara and Jax's relationship is difficult at best, and this manages to make it clear just how torn Tara really is about it all. The ending hurts.

demands (2513 words) by sentbyfools
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Once Upon a Time (TV)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Captain Hook | Killian Jones/Emma Swan
Characters: Emma Swan
Additional Tags: Bloodplay, Knifeplay
Series: Part 1 of if that's what you demand, then that's just what i'll give you

"if that's what you demand, then that's what i'll deliver; if that's what you demand, then that's just what i'll give you"

Emma has a need that only Hook can satisfy.

Comments: This is the first of an ongoing series (there are currently 8 short fics in it), detailing the very kinky play between Emma and Hook. It is hot, it is dirty, and underneath it all is a thin veneer of unspoken emotion that makes it all that much better. It won't be for everyone, and it's not going to change the world or anything, but damn if it's not one of the hotter things I've read in a while. I'm a sucker for Hook.

Dichotomy (5616 words) by IamShadow21
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Greg Sanders & Nick Stokes, Greg Sanders/Nick Stokes
Characters: Greg Sanders, Nick Stokes, Jim Brass, David Phillips, David Hodges, Archie Johnson
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Case Fic, Episode: s13e21 Ghosts of the Past, POV Nick Stokes, POV Male Character, Mental Health Issues, Suicidal Thoughts, Psychic Abilities, Murder Mystery, Friendship, Hurt/Comfort, Trope Subversion/Inversion, Trope Bingo Round 2, Challenge: trope-bingo, Possibly Pre-Slash, Gen or Pre-Slash

Science or the supernatural - Greg had to choose. But what if he couldn't?

An AU where Greg's life takes a different, more rocky path to meeting the CSI team for the first time.

Comments: This was a great little gen/pre-slash if you squint CSI case based on the idea of what if Greg never became a CSI. Greg has really evolved over the course of the show, as has Nick, and I loved this potential take on their friendship.

Say Grace To The Gates We Race (398 words) by Aj
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: General Hospital
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply, Major Character Death
Relationships: Georgie Jones & Malcolm "Mac" Scorpio
Characters: Malcolm "Mac" Scorpio, Georgie Jones
Additional Tags: Canonical Character Death, Angst, Wakes & Funerals, Father-Daughter Relationship

He'd been the first person to hold her after her birth; screaming and writhing, she'd been so full of promise.

Comments: So, um, yes, I watch General Hospital. Every day. Grew up on it, had to stop watching while we were in the UK, but have gotten sucked back in, especially in the past two years under the new management. It's nice having people in charge who actually respect the show's history and love the characters. This ficlet is just a moment in Mac's perspective at Georgie's funeral, but it feels real and in light of recent events, got to me hard.
