Like any self-respecting webmaster, I put my own work first. (Aw, c'mon, I'm kidding. Well, I did put my work first. But that's only natural and probably some kind of survival instinct. As for webmasters, I have yet to meet one who hasn't worked their tail off to create the best site possible, or hasn't treated the people who post with them with respect.)
Okay, enough, lol. Offsite recommendations are below. Be sure to check 'em out.
My idea was to find sites where the Roswell slash caught my eye somehow (the imagery, writing style, originality, maybe all of the above), and highlight one or two fics off of each that made a distinct impression on me in some way.
Many of these links were not listed with the written approval of the author or webmaster, although some were and I stayed away from any sites that specifically asked not to be. If you would like your link removed, or even better, would like to suggest one yourself, please let me know, okay? Thanks! I will try to stay as close to my own guidelines as possible. But please remember, I just do this for fun and it's a casual enterprise. When in doubt, assume ratings to be adult.
My listing order is half-hazard and random at best, largely dictated by whatever mood I'm in on a given day vs. whatever I stumble across. Does this put a crimp in your well-planned existence? *g* Then click here to see my picks in alphabetical order.
Note: Debbie hosts a number of authors for a nice variety, has an eye for quality, and updates often. The main focus is on Roswell, but she's branched out into DC and HP. And yes, it is her fault I got interested in either of them. Darn you anyway, Debbie! *g*
Note: Pilar's responsible for a lot of what makes the Roswell fandom great, including GP, and her site is proof. Despite myself, I even started reading some DC, because it's that good. (I know, it scares me too. *g*) Love her Oz-fics, too.
Note: I've always liked Alex, although mostly in a general "gee, I wish I had a friend like Alex" kind of way. But the way Livia sees him through Kyle's eyes is breathtaking. Gives whole new meaning to end-of-S2 canon.
Note: I adore both Ash Jay (even if she is MIA) and Liz/Tess as a 'ship (I'm still recovering from Departure, damn it). And so it's fitting that I love this site, which holds some classic, classic L/T fic.
Note: Loki has a great 'voice', if that makes any sense, that comes through in her writing. Me being me, of course I loved her rare foray into Liz POV, and so I'm including it here, even though it's not technically slash. Webmaster's prerogative. :p
Note: for me, reading I/T fic is a little like biting on tinfoil. It sends a shock through you, and you can't decide if it's fun (the way pulling scabs was as a kid was fun) or painful. But there's no denying the power of some of these offerings.
Note: You know, I was a little resistant to m/m slash at first. I just didn't 'get' it. But then I actually read some, and well, I'm still not sure I 'get' it exactly but it doesn't matter anymore because I know I like reading it, and that's more than enough for me! It doesn't hurt that great sites like this one exist.
Note: So I've already gotten someone who's surprised that *I* included a Maria-centred site here, so I'd like to point out that just because I can't seem to get a grasp on her voice, doesn't mean I don't or can't like Maria, or appreciate people who do! And I'm pointing this out for the m/m action anyway, LOL. Geez. *g* Besides, it's a good site.
Note: Okay, normally I'm a bit of a jerk about webmasters who use cute graphics, but here it's done well and the navigation's solid, so am I going to complain? Nope. Plus, there's a surprising range of stories, and I'm hoping the library'll grow.
Some Personal Favourites:
Love Child, by Aelita Mi/K
Threesomes, Voyeurism, and Bondage, Oh My! by Jennifer Mar/L,A/M,A/L,Mi/Mar
Note: Okay, so Roswell accounts for about 0.005% of Matthew Haldimand-Time's fic. But it's so great, I found myself reading for fandoms I didn't know (or care) existed. Seriously, this is a site to see! (*snicker* Sorry, I love puns; what can I say?)
Note: Okay, I'm not entirely sure what happened to the URL I had before -- perhaps it changed, and I just need to track it down -- but it ain't workin' no more. So I'm linking to DM's board, temporarily, because some is waaay better than none!
Note: This is a site about Zan (well, duh!), and predominantly het and threesome. (Not that there's anything wrong with that ... lol, I love it all, I'm such a slut). There's something about the good girl/bad boy thing ... it only gets better when you add 'good boy' to the equation, lol!.
Note: It just so happens that I love the series this is part of, and I just about jumped for joy when I realised that there's enough suggestiveness in the last one that I think I can make an argument for including it here, although the slash isn't really the point, I know. But hey, webmaster's prerogative. :p
Note: Trixie's well-known for her B/A fic, and I adore her crossovers. How could I not love a Liz/Buffy/Angel love triangle? Just imagine my joy when she turned her attention to the slash 'ship that originally seduced me -- and created a site to house the results.
Note: Tasyfa's still site-building, but I really enjoyed this fic, so I'm providing a temporary addy. Somehow she worked some serious love into the lust, and I've really started to love this threesome with a passion I never expected. What can I say? When I fall, I fall hard, lol.
Note: Holy multifandom action, Batman! (er, Batman people don't sue me either, 'kay? Lol ...) Now, navigation might seem a tad confusing, and the adult pop-ups slightly shocking, but don't let that dissuade you. There's some great stuff here; just hit 'Enter' and then scroll down -- and shared my impressedness on the way -- to Roswell. Whoa, eh?
Note: I know I go on and on about distracting from the fic with graphics
and frames and such, but for some reason, I think it's done pretty well here.
It doesn't interfere with the navigation, at any rate, and loading time isn't
compromised noticeably (on my computer). The site is predominantly het, but
the slash section is rounding out nicely.
