Last of the Guardians rec? o_0 It's been a while.

I missed some GW and 1X5 action, scoured the internets and somehow, I stumbled upon BlackIce. I'm still not sure what happened, honestly but the fandom is pretty satisfying. It's like the world of Thor mixed with the dynamics of Harry/Snape, sorta. Except for the fact that Jack is much more Slytherin.

Untitled by Lindzzz
Pairing: Jack/Pitch
Prompt: Kozmotis goes enraged to pick up Seraphina who sneaked out to a club but gets sidetracked into dancing with that one cute twink ;D
Comments: Modern!AU. Cute, awkward, and strangely adorable. Plus, it inspired fanart! Hot Dad by Besteck.

Also check out Besteck's tribute to the Shadows and Light series.

Shadows and Light series by not_poignant
Pairing: Jack Frost/Pitch Black
Summary: (From the Darkness We Rise) Twenty two years have passed since the defeat of Pitch, and Jack lives alone, touch-starved, with only the company of a solitary Nightmare. One evening the Man in the Moon sets him on a path that will lead him to unexpected relationships, draw the attention of the Guardians to a new coalition of villains, and challenge Jack's every notion of what it is to be good, evil, and what it is to live in the shadows.

Shadows and Light: Fae Tales by not_poignant
Pairings: Gwyn/Augus primarily
Summary: A collection of stories from the fae side of things, including Game Theory, sequel to the Shadows and Light series. (Game Theory summary) Six months after Gwyn's defeat of the once Unseelie King, Augus Each Uisge, Gwyn has the fae waterhorse locked down in a cell, beneath the Seelie Court. In a difficult position himself, ruling an unwanted throne and waiting out the years between now and the time he can step down as King, Gwyn finds himself unable to stay away.

Comments: A warning: this series is not for the squeamish; loads and loads of porn, noncon and BDSM. That aside, I fell in love with the original characters. Usually, I'm not too much of a fan of original characters but Not Poignant's OC's are complex, intelligent, and thoroughly interesting. They have their own back story and Not Poignant writes some of the best character interactions I've ever read, fanwork or otherwise. Well, more accurately, it's some of the best weaving of character history and interactions. Character's limited perception is taken into account and misunderstandings can happen in the most organic way as they try to understand each other, sometimes with very brutal methods.
I love Gwyn. He very much reminds me of Berserk's Griffith. They both have a ruthless, manipulative, indomitable will and you can't believe how happy I am to find Gwyn older, wiser, more vulnerable, and less controlled (and if also slightly less clever). I love what I've seen of the Raven Prince and Augus's role as an antagonist is not a black and white issue.
