    Jack's dreamscape of Concetta and Phryne – this follows a somewhat experimental unconscious structure that's very layered and vivid. Sad but lovely! And it's such a treat to see a little more of what Concetta is (or could have been) to Jack.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    An odd premise for a story: all the ways they can get naked together before they actually have sex. But it becomes unexpectedly serialized, and bittersweet, and serious. Jack has a severe war wound, and that's handled very well as the axis of a character-driven story. I found it so interesting and engaging and seductive!

    I have never wanted a missing scene as much as I wanted this one – it solves the whole finale for me, weaves in and transforms details from the episode. Intense, wistful, grave, gorgeous. They oscillate perfectly between serious emotion and light banter.

    Summary

    Phryne comes up with a gem of a fundraising idea for the annual Ladies Auxiliary of Melbourne Holiday Ball. Involves Jack, Hugh and ten other gorgeous gentlemen as 1930 Calendar Boys. Jack deserves to be a centerfold, doesn't he? Don't worry...he & Phryne might play dirty behind the closed doors of the boudoir, but the calendar will be as Honourable as Phryne. It's going to be a great year for all the lucky ladies of Melbourne. And just wait until the auction begins!

    A fun premise, and a tenderly domestic established relationship (Dot and Hugh essentially live with them!). The story doesn't wind its way to the calendar or auction, but the final chapter has an especially lovely sex scene.

    Summary

    Mac takes a breath; Phryne exhales. The trailing skirt of Phryne’s shining dress – starlight and sparkle – brushes the backs of Mac’s hands as she slides them up to Phryne’s knees. Her stockings are soft; her thighs fall open, softly, under Mac’s hands, which clench, just slightly, with the heat that sends to her gut.

    I want 100 fics like this, but since there's only the one I'm glad it's so fantastic! Wherein Camellia is smart about sex and relationships, maybe even smarter than Phryne. Beautiful exploration of Camellia's character and her marriage, and even with the tight POV the author manages to suggest that she's attracted to Phryne (although she doesn't know it consciously herself). You can look forward to a sexy ending, even though it's G. (Polyamory, bisexuality, threesomes.) [L]

    Summary

    Phryne watched his lovely face, from his pale lashes to the slightly upturned slope of his nose, the hollows of his smooth cheeks, the determined line of his jaw. It would not be easy for her either, to go without seeing that face for ten long days.

    But she was Phryne Fisher—surely she could find a way to keep both of them entertained in her absence. It was only a question of how. She would need to leave something behind, something of herself, something wicked and forbidden for him to find, something to torture him and keep her first in his thoughts.

    Lord, this fic. One of the many wonderful things about this premise is that it's smutty throughout but there's still a delicious buildup to the grand finale. And OMG masturbation and phone sex! It seems like it would be ridiculous, and perhaps it is a little, but also so beautifully executed and grounded in character and genuine emotion. This author is a fave and commits with admirable sincerity to a concept. A+++ [R]

    OK so I started reading more recent G/T fic – these two will ruin me. Very glad I didn't miss this one, which is a quietly lovely established relationship (young vintage). With the suggestion of polyamory! Jack's POV, and all the subtle ways he observes and thinks of Phryne are so well done. [L]

    Without her permission her hand found its way onto Jack's thigh as they sat in the large parlour of her aunt's house and shared polite conversation and drinks with a young woman -unmarried and hinting she preferred to stay that way- the girl was called away by her stern looking father, and once she'd left Jack covered Phryne's hand with his own, moving it from his leg to her knee.

    "That is not," he murmured quietly, "what I would call behaving, Phryne."

    Summary

    This is Jack's story, told through his interactions with and memories of three women: his sister Tabby [made up by me and in my head she's played by a brown-eyed Yvonne Strahovski], Rosie, and Phryne. The Phryne parts are in chronological order and the rest skip around in time as Jack's memories dictate. The first case mentioned is the Rene Dubois case (1x07), and the last is the Sanderson and Fletcher case (2x12). I could not get the timing of the Christmas special (2x13) to work for the story, so I ignored it entirely. This fic uses canon from the show only, not the books as well.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Every bit the tour de force that it promises to be, when it comes to Jack fic (his POV, first time). Reading it requires a certain mood – it proceeds at a deliberate pace and doesn't offer instant gratification. And while the story works its way up to some evocative sex, it's not really one to read for porn. The prose is spare and graceful, a bit distancing and mannered, but pleasant in its rhythms. I'm fully willing to accept this extensive backstory (Jack growing up, Jack during the war) as fanon. He's painted as oddly asexual (demisexual?), but I liked the idea of an erotic awakening. My eternal gratitude for an unusually sympathetic portrait of Rosie, and their marriage! [L]

    One of the HOTTEST series, in my opinion – it only really gets cooking a few chapters in, so let it escalate. The premise has a rather heteronormative cast, but to me the kinky powerplay counterbalances that. Very visceral writing style, but peppered with arresting and elegant turns of phrase. [R]

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I've been considering how to write this rec for some time. No single fanfic has ever enthralled me (in every sense of the word) like this story, and probably no other ever will. At the same time, the fic might not be so inviting for everyone – this note is mainly about how I read it, in hopes that you might read it too.

    In my opinion, one mark of good smut is that it forces the reader to undergo vicariously what the characters are experiencing. Jack and Phryne claw their way to bliss with some difficulty in this story, and thus reading it can similarly be a struggle to slice through distancing grandiloquence and allusions to reach the heart of them. The writing is unabashedly baroque, unlike anything I've encountered at this archive, but it flows fluently in its heterodox extravagance. If you accept that you must submit to it, the prose is dazzling and sometimes cataclysmic in its beauty, and there's a virtuosic treatise worth of historical and literary references crammed in. I'll co-rec, here, the meta annotations in progress, which brought me almost as a delirious a pleasure as the fic itself: https://archiveofourown.org/works/3259520

    It's far more 1929 than the show, this story, and if it takes some liberties with canon, it's to allegorize a broader confrontation between the 19th century and the 20th (at the pivot of the former's last gasp of resistance to modernity). So that's Jack, carrying the whole baggage of periodization – not exactly my Jack, perhaps, but a Jack with such an eloquent voice about his own internal battles. Phryne is all of 1929 in one great gasp, a dissertation (one might guess) tumbled onto the palimpsest of the page, but a more concentrated concoction of herself for that. She's interlaced with veins of backstory and context that I absolutely cherish (not least of which, an interlude of Phryne/Mac!).

    Despite its unity of time and place, the encounter chronicled here is a microcosm of the whole arc of their relationship, so if the characters seem to have a series one-ish distance at the outset, have faith that they will change and grow. I think I love every chapter more than the last, and by the end it's staggeringly romantic and profound. I look at this story, sometimes, as an ambivalent love letter from the 21st century to the 20th. I ended my comments with: "It was my Alexandria for a time." Let's acknowledge the orientalism, but also embrace the ways that eroticism, television, shipping, writing and reading can be uncomfortable, fraught, cerebral, and still inextricable from our voracious souls.

    That's what this story said to me, for what it's worth.

    THIS FIC. I've read it so many times. Sometimes porn needs a first time to get its charge, but here one swirls right into the delicious twists and turns of an erotic journey in progress. It's hot in the familiar ways, but also in idiosyncratic moments that are arresting in their vibrancy. Phryne's POV. [L]
