Anonymous said: Do you have any Style fic recommendations? I've already read all of your fics but I'd like to read more!
Yeah, thanks for asking! I’ve been meaning to make a Stan/Kyle rec list (I thought I had, but only in scattered comments over the years):
SekritOMG was the most influential South Park writer for me in terms of making me want to settle into this fandom and try writing longer stories myself. She really brings Stan and Kyle to life for me, her execution is always thoughtful, plot and character choices are both appropriate in terms of drawing from canon and are also often unique in the fandom, and her stories are both very funny and emotionally effective, to the point of making me just ache for things to go right for Stan and Kyle, wah.
My favorite of hers is an AU: The Rectum is a Tomb
This domestic/holiday story is delightful, and it introduced me to the concept of cock docking, which is forever a Stan/Kyle tradition for me now: Fruits and Birds
Her high school Stan/Kyle getting-together story is one of the first she did, and already the voices of major and minor characters are spot on, I think: The Other Table
Julads is my favorite newer writer. She writes with a confidence and style that I really admire, and I feel like she ‘gets’ Stan and Kyle. Her fics always feel very true to their dynamic together, and she does an excellent job balancing of humor and emotion, which I find ~essential~ in my South Park reading.
Rerooted - Is her ‘high school prom’ story that takes an approach to that typical subject matter that I really love.
Substatrum - Kyle and Stan share an apartment and the tension in their friendship builds into something more.
Two Christmases - A holiday fic about Stan and Kyle dealing with their families, a subject that is addressed very well here and something I love reading about in general (it’s also a sequel to the above story).
Swarm & Handle - An amazing historical AU about Stan and Kyle hopping trains together. Contains my favorite Stan/Kyle first time scene that I’ve read so far, an excellent Kenny, and lots of fantastic and absorbing detail in the world building.
Petroica traversi has written some great Stan/Kyle:
Hamamelidaceae Cute oneshot about Stan associating plant names with Kyle.
Gay Pirates - An AU where Kyle is a captive on Cartman’s pirate ship, and Stan takes care of him.
Black Mirror - Responsibly researched and well-handled WWII AU.
SqueakGirl was a writer of mostly fluffy romance that I really enjoyed:
Of Love and Marriage - Cute fic that starts out when they are show-age.
Things This Apartment Needs - Very enjoyable domestic fic.
Dirt Wizard by Applecrumbledore is excellent, and I also love Missed Connections (beware some heavy Kyle/Cartman content in the getting-to-Style process).
Jerk by Delires is a short but good porn story, and if you like that you could check out her other two Stan/Kyle stories.
I don’t like a lot of the older stuff, but I’m sentimental about Red String, which was the first South Park fic first I ever read (warning: it’s unfinished in a kind of devastating way).
Psychic BS was also a fun read when I was first looking into the fandom, but I wouldn’t say it’s well written and I honestly don’t remember that much of it.
Check out the Stan/Kyle section on the Kink Meme for anything you might have missed there. There’s some great stuff by anons that hasn’t been posted elsewhere to my knowledge.
My SP reading has slowed down lately — I’ve been struggling with time management and mostly trying to get my own fics done — but I recently read the first chapter of a WIP called Losing Days by GhostGenocide. It’s enjoyable and looking promising so far!
