Busy couple of months! Good job, little hockey fandom. *pets it*

Pens fic
Bow and Arrow by [archiveofourown.org profile] oflights
Crosby/Malkin, 46k. Delicious long angsty fic where Sid gets jilted at the altar, takes Geno on his would-be honeymoon and has string free sex, and discovers that there were more strings than he realized.

Clotting Time by [archiveofourown.org profile] downjune
Crosby/Malkin, 4.6k. Geno gets injured during sex, which prompts some much-needed communication on both their parts. One rather expects that a sex injury fic will be funny, but this one is not; it is all about the FEELINGS, which as we know is what I want most out of any porn.

What Happened in Moscow by [archiveofourown.org profile] pinetreekate
Crosby/Malkin, 9.3k. On a whim, Sid takes Geno up on his offer to visit Moscow, but it's in the aftermath that things really start to get confusing for him. Very sweet and gentle.

Pass It On by [archiveofourown.org profile] thefourthvine
Crosby/Malkin, 9.2k. Sidney Crosby, agony aunt. That is really all you need to know, except that in truth the primary ship in this fic is Sid/his sexuality, which is one of my OTPs.

but it's the only game in town by [archiveofourown.org profile] Sour_Idealist
Girl!Sid, 4.5k. A girl!Sid fic that has her playing in the CWHL and participating in a Pens practice one day. Neat look at what, more realistically, Sid's life might look like if he were a woman.

I Think I Know My Geography by [archiveofourown.org profile] downjune
Crosby/Fleury, 22.4k. Flower discover's Sidney Crosby's name on his skin and thinks it's the worst thing that could happen to him. Angsty teenage soulmates FTW! Lots of awkwardness and upset and slow build, which I love.

forgotten how to stand, by [archiveofourown.org profile] inlovewithnight
Johnson+Crosby gen, 4.1k. Sid's getting blackmailed, which brings up all sorts of memories he'd rather forget. Quiet friendship piece. Warnings for past sexual assault, use of RL family members as villains.

neon tulips by [archiveofourown.org profile] verity
Amanda Kessel/Sidney Crosby, 4.8k. AKA the You've Got Mail mistaken identity fic you never knew you wanted, BUT YOU DID. You so did. This is the most adorable.

this place is really nowhere by [archiveofourown.org profile] pr_scatterbrain
Crosby/Semin, Malkin, 2.5k. I would never have thought of this ship. Geno wouldn't have, either, and his perspective is what makes this fic work.

Bruins fic
You For Me by [archiveofourown.org profile] Las
Marchand/Seguin, 2.9k. Marchy and Segs are going to try this long-distance thing, but they're maybe not very good at it. MY HEART. I've seriously read the final scene at least ten times; I left it open in a tab and kept going back.

A guide to being pregnant while being an NHL superstar, by superstar Tyler Seguin, by [archiveofourown.org profile] ice_hot_13
Marchand/Seguin, 1.2k. A fic in list form. I was amused.

Subject to Verification, by [archiveofourown.org profile] Butterfly_Beat
Marchand/Seguin, 4.7k. In which Marchy and Segs were secretly married a while back, but now that's about to be less secret, and Segs is freaking out. This is the final part of a series, but this was my favorite part, and IMO it stands alone just fine.

Southern Light by [archiveofourown.org profile] bookhousegirl
Bergeron/Marchand, 8.9k. I'm not much for AUs in this fandom, but apparently I have an Antarctica AU exception. This is utterly delightful. Lovely descriptions of the south pole and of just how much these two enjoy and delight in each other, unlikely as it seems to everyone else.

Other fic
Touch Therapy by [archiveofourown.org profile] darkrosaleen
Pearson/Jones/Toffoli, 3.2k. For all your magically-motivated cuddling and pining needs.

Special by [archiveofourown.org profile] crispierchip
Benn/Seguin, 5.3k. In which Segs offers to let Jamie fuck his armpit, which shockingly doesn't go all that well and prompts a lot of feelings and maybe some stuff getting talked out.

Crisis Management by [archiveofourown.org profile] escherzo
Saad/Johansen, 4.9k. Joey has a midlife crisis in his early twenties. Brandon is there to help him out. First-time-with-a-guy fic, which is one of those things I love. Just very sweet.

Something Old by [archiveofourown.org profile] uraneia
Briere/Giroux, 13k. Ten years after they broke up, Claude has to be Danny's date to a wedding. This fic will pull your heart right out of your chest, stomp on it, and then wash it off and stitch it back in, ever so gently. So, AAAAANGST but with a happy ending. If you like getting-back-together fic, this is for you.

Ice Ice Baby by [archiveofourown.org profile] hatfulofcrazy
Briere/Giroux, 51k. In which Claude gets pregnant at Worlds, and Danny's there to help him pick up the pieces, just like he always has. Mpreg + epic pining, my fave.

A Wish Your Heart Makes by [archiveofourown.org profile] hapakitsune
McDavid/Eichel, 7.4k. Connor starts dreaming of Jack when he's fifteen years old. A neat little fantasy fic, where one of them has been pining for years before they've even met, and the other is really not sure what to do with that.

The Brook Horse by [archiveofourown.org profile] WeagleRock
Backstrom/Ovechkin, 11.6k. Swedish water monsters, loneliness, EVIL WATER LILIES. The water lilies are so evil. If you want some spooky fantasy with a romance component, this is for you. I love this fic so much.

Baby Boom by [archiveofourown.org profile] WeagleRock
Backstrom/Ovechkin, 7.3k. In which hockey teams are kind of like horse herds, and the captain has to knock up all his mares every so often, For Hockey. This is surprisingly way less overtly kinky than it sounds? Basically it's the excuse for a lot of utilitarian sex + mpreg, which is sooooo my jam.

1,000th customer by [archiveofourown.org profile] humvee
Gallagher/Galchenyuk, 14k. Alex is a college student; Gally plays hockey on that team Alex doesn't care about. Alex may or may not win a week with Montreal Canadien Brendan Gallagher, but he suffers through with good grace, mostly.

Would Things be Easier by [archiveofourown.org profile] blue_spruce
Shannon Szabados/Scott Darling, 11k for series. This pairs nicely with the girl!Sid fic from above. Shannon has a gold medal, but Scott has a Stanley Cup + gets recognized on the street + no money troubles ever again, if he plays his cards right. At its heart, this is about two people with really different opportunities in life who nonetheless like each other a whole lot. I really liked how the fics kept bringing up but not dwelling on those differences.

young love, so much potential, by [archiveofourown.org profile] blamefincham, [archiveofourown.org profile] teaboytoaliens
McDavid/Nugent-Hopkins, 6k. Connor and Ryan did not expect to be soulmates, and it takes them some time to adjust. Cute little fic about soulmates and communication.
