|07:41 pm - Boosh fanfic recs|
I just had a WONDERFUL weekend reading Booshfic and I thought I'd share.
I spent days on the amazing Mint Royale series by thieving_gypsy. There are over 30 chapters now, folks! For the full lot you have to be on her f-list on LJ, but otherwise start here. Howard Moon/Vince Noir (in their roles in the Mint Royale video, as bank robbers) NC-17, much violence
There was a particularly lovely chapter involving ice lollies. Thus my icon. An even better chapter involving a very hot bath. I'm breathless at the memory. This is perfect yet twisted stuff.
Other lovely fic.
Howard Moon/Old Gregg by speth
Finally Got My Hands into Howard Moon NC-17, locked on BSH (you must be joined)
I love anything with Howard/Old Gregg! There really doesn't have to be any other reason for me to read a fic than Old Gregg is in it, having his horrible fishy way with Howard. Especially if it's in explicit detail. Even more so if Howard is all hating the fishy times and enjoying them at the same time. Extra points if it's horribly funny. THIS ONE WINS ON ALL COUNTS.
Vince Noir/Bob Fossil by obeythebunny and pat_o_cake
Are you loathesome tonight?, NC-17, locked on blue_boosh (you must be over 18 and a member)
And oh God, warnings! And I really can't describe this fic except that it's more funny than any fic has a right to be. And if you have a weak stomach, stay away.
Padre/Thornton Reed from 'Garth Merenghi's Darkplace' by toratio
Embrace The Infinite Rated Mature (but not too explict, I think) locked on BSH
I love Darkplace-style, it's so ridiculous. This one gets the mood spot on. And Padre-fic? Yum.
For more Darkplace fics, see thymeth
As always, all my Booshfic favourites from forever are in my LJ memories. I have over a hundred bookmarked.

|07:00 am - Rec: Booshfic|
At last! That didn't take me long, only a couple of months.
I finally figured out how to filter my LJ flist, so I can remain friended to the comm I post my Booshfic to, booshslashhaven, but it doesn't appear on my flist any more so I don't have to get bombarded with the vast quantities of RPS on it.
I feel an incredible sense of relief. To celebrate, I'm going to rec one of my favourite recent Booshfics:
Close your Eyes by thieving_gypsy Locked on BHS, Also on the BSH Archive here
Nathan Barley/Boosh Crossover, Dan Ashcroft/Vince Noir (NC-17)
Why I love it:
It was written for the Boosh kink meme for the prompt: "Vince getting a spanking from Dan Ashcroft." So it's a spanking fic. And yes, that's done well - but that wouldn't be enough for me to rec it. The real reason I went crazy over this was the feeling of backstory that gyspy's managed to create. It crackles off the screen. I'm completely convinced as to why these two characters would meet into the first place, what they are looking from each other, and all the emotions and expectations they're bringing to it.
Although Dan is quite antagonistic and emotionally reserved by the end I'm really feeling for him. There's less of Vince, but in just a few sentences she manages to say so much.
There are bits that are very, very funny, in their dry observation of character. It has the genius line, "Sperms in my HAIR, you tosspot, that is WELL RANCID!" How could you possibly resist? I laughed out loud where I least expected it, often where it was saddest. The atmosphere is wonderfully seedy, and angry and vivid. Brilliant. Yet at the end there's a flare of hope, and it was totally believable as well. I was left completely emotionally satisfied - and it's not often you can say that about a fic.
