So, uh, I've been reading a lot of hockey fic lately?

Sid/Geno fic
you'll never have to wonder by [ profile] nebulia
Sid/Geno. As the summary says, Sidney is telepathic, which explains 95% of his idiosyncrasies.

All Great and Precious Things by [ profile] hapakitsune
Sid/Geno. Geno comes out to Sid. Sweet, low-key, surprisingly non-angsty.

Feed Your Head (is what the dormouse said) by [ profile] Axis2ClusterB, [ profile] o_contrary
Sid/Geno. In which someone recommends Sid some, ahem, alternative medicine for his concussion. I was amused.

magic in the midnight sun by [ profile] hapakitsune
Sid/Geno. In which someone has cast a curse on Sid, and Geno is secretly a wizard.

knit one purl two by [ profile] bropunzeling
Sid/Geno. In which Geno is a stress knitter, and I go "Awwww" a lot.

all I remember is what I have lost by [ profile] mousselinegateau
Sid/Geno. Geno gets concussed and is bewildered to find that he and Sid broke up three days ago. A different use of the amnesia premise than I usually see. Neat.

Reset and Restart, Sweetheart by [ profile] VampireSpider
Sid/Geno. Sid starts avoiding Geno after Geno gets a concussion, and Geno doesn't understand why. Established relationship fic with realistic yet not earth-shattering conflict! W00t!

Closed Fracture by [ profile] lightgetsin
Sid/Geno. Sid breaks his arm during a kids' hockey game, Geno helps tend him. I often wonder why there isn't more straight h/c in this fandom, given how many injuries there are. In any case, this one is nice.

cardinalis by [ profile] magneticwave
Sid/girl!Geno. I have tried and failed to make any headway with hockey femslash that genderswaps both characters, but apparently het can work just fine. Girl!Geno is the star of the show here; she's still 6'3", she wears dresses (but only if PR makes the guys dress up, too), and she's otherwise pretty much exactly the Geno we know.

other fic with Penguins
One Year Later by [ profile] missmollyetc
Genfic. You need a decent grounding in Penguins events the last five years or so to appreciate this, but given that, this is some of the saddest horror and/or the creepiest angst I've read in a LONG time. Also a stealth crossover with one of the fandoms of my heart.

Flip Shut, Hang Up by [ profile] thehoyden, [ profile] twentysomething
Sid/Geno, but from Alex Ovechkin's POV. There is not nearly enough Ovie fic out there, especially given what a personality he is IRL, and you will be even more disappointed about that fact after reading this fic. I was HIGHLY AMUSED.

to make us public sport by [ profile] Petra
Slings and Arrows crossover. Genfic. Someone has the bright idea to make ads hockey players reciting Shakespeare on camera. I don't know Slings and Arrows at all, but this was nonetheless hi-larious. Features Sid and Fleury from the Pens as well as Jonny and some other Blackhawks.

going up flying, going home by [ profile] autumbral
Sid/Toews. Sid and Jonny hook up during the Vancouver Olympics, play a lot of hockey, and maybe get their lives changed. This is the fic you want if you want a fic with LOTS OF HOCKEY. I actually skimmed some bits because I just did not need that much hockey. The Sid/Jonny relationship feels very real and immediate.

Cold Days in Hell by [ profile] nebulia
Geno/Sean Coutier, background Sid/Geno. In which Geno and Sean (of the Flyers) beat each other up, wear themselves out having angry sex, and then bond over Die Hard, English as a second language, and being in love with their teammates. If there's such a thing as an adorable hatesex fic, this might be it.

Glass Houses by [ profile] pikasfire
Sid/Claude Giroux. It starts as hatesex, but it doesn't end there. So I guess this is the second cute hatesex fic in this recs list.

when you're feeling warm, the energy can drop away by [ profile] OpheliaRising
Sid+Tazer. Genfic. Several months into Sid's concussion, he shows up on Jonny's doorstop. I want ALL THE HOCKEY GENFIC, and this about one previously concussed team captain advising another is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for.

Kaner/Toews fic
Shot right through with a bolt of blue by [ profile] mermaid
Kaner/Tazer. Jonny has this problem where when he gets mad, he shoots bolts of energy from his eyes, which explains pretty much everything you've ever heard about Johnny Toews, Hockey Robot. I really like Jonny in this one, and his struggle to keep himself under control and its effects on the rest of his life pulled all my heartstrings. Kaner's pretty great, too.

Bluehawk by [ profile] aohatsu
Kaner/girl!Tazer. Another always-a-girl hetfic. It's interesting how much the Kaner/Tazer dynamic changes here, but I think that's largely due to Kaner and how much differently he treats Jo Toews than he would Jonny. In any case, I enjoyed it.

Never Face the Music (When It's Dire) by [ profile] notamagnet
Kaner/Tazer. Jonny's captain of the Blackhawks, and Pat works at the local CVS. This fic features the kind of woebegone circumstances (for Patrick) that yank at my id and make my nose run. If you're looking for a "character is in dire straits and also has low self-esteem" fic, then this is your fic.

Tour de Force by [ profile] thehoyden
Kaner/Tazer. If you want to read about Patrick Kane discovering he's in love with Jonny by way of accidentally writing a bestselling hockey novel, this is the fic for you. The publishing end of things is definitely, uh, adjusted to suit the plot, but the fic as a whole is really adorable.

say it with flowers by [ profile] hazel
Kaner/Tazer. In which Kaner talks to plants. That's pretty much the fic. It's very sweet. There's flower language involved towards the end, which is much less saccharin than you might expect.

Bye Bye Blackhawk by [ profile] jedusaur
Kaner/Tazer. Kaner's a Blackhawks fan who wins a week hanging out with the team, flirts with Patrick Sharp a lot, and doesn't understand why Toews is always scowling at him. Fun and sweet, with some background closeted gay anxiety if that's your thing.

you're with a winner so, baby, you can't lose by [ profile] zarathuse
Kaner/Tazer. Kaner knows the internet is wrong, but that doesn't stop him from flying up to Winnipeg to convince Jonny not to get traded to the Jets of all places.
