So I decided to make a reclist of Adam/Tommy fic, because there’s a lot of it, and I know how hard it can be to find the good stuff when you’re new to a fandom. A couple notes before I start:

- I had to limit myself to a few stories for each author, but I strongly recommend checking out the rest of their works as well!
- I did not list content notes or warnings here. Please make sure to pay attention to them after clicking a link.
- Most of these are my personal favorites, and obviously those are just due to personal preference. However, there are also one or two fics on the list that I actually haven’t read (yet!) but felt compelled to include due to how well-known they are within the fandom.
- There’s no real order here. If it’s on the list, I recommend it!
- There are so many more great stories than what I could include here. Please, if you have a favorite that isn’t listed, link it in the comments!



***

Astolat - for a fandom classic. The first fic I (and many others) read for this pairing.

Drive-By Devotion (explicit, 7,000 words)

It seemed like a good idea after five martinis in the Wynn high-rollers bar.

***

Minxie - for some of the best D/s you will ever read

A Need So Fundamental (explicit, 13,000 words)

"It could be so much fucking more." The words are slow and lazy, a direct correlation to the time spent in the air and the amount of liquor Adam consumes when he feels trapped and forced into stillness. "You don't know half of what it could be."

*

Built Upon the Water’s Edge (mature, 10,000 words)

In which Adam is Adam, Tommy is stubborn, and together they redefine things like relationships and authority. And there's some showering too.

*

Learning to Breathe (explicit, 6,000 words)

Sometimes you need help catching your breath.

*

Inherent Attribute of the Soul (explicit, 6,000 words)

Some things are learned, taught to oneself over time, while others are inherent, a permanent and inseparable attribute of the soul.

***

Bluesoaring - for some of the best porn on the internet (and incredible variety)

The Good Times are Killing Me (explicit, 10,000 words)

It's not co-dependency. It's healthy work-life balance.

*

We’re not looking for where we belong (explicit, 5,000 words)

There are lines in the sand and Tommy's allowed to touch them, give them a little nudge, but not step right fucking over them like that.

*

Finish your collapse and stay for breakfast (explicit, 5,000 words)

Adam hauls him in closer, gets down and dirty and oh sweet fucking Jesus, now Tommy is hard for real. This is so fucking awkward.

*

Give you some of my good time (explicit, 3,000 words)

"For real?" Adam says, stupefied, words tumbling over one another he's in such a hurry to get them out, like the whole thing is flat-out inconceivable. "Nobody's ever fingered you?"

*

Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you (explicit, 59,000 words)

Some casual, no-strings affection is exactly what Adam says he needs, what Tommy thinks he wants, and tour is a great environment to get it. But for something without strings, the sex with Adam leaves Tommy feeling awfully tangled up, and eventually something has to give.

***

My_Silent_Hour - for novels so good they should be gracing the shelves of bookstores everywhere

Call the Darkness Light (explicit, 59,000 words)

Adam, a Fallen angel, is in love with Tommy and makes a bet with his guardian angel (Brad) for Tommy's soul, with Adam's freedom at stake.

*

That Good Night (explicit, 67,000 words)

I did not go gently. I fought, and I fought hard. I fought for Tommy, too. I fought until I figured out just what I was fighting for. And when I figured that out… well, that’s when I decided that perhaps gently was the best way to go after all.

*

And Adam Makes Three (explicit, 97,000 words)

“So what do we do?”

“We do what hurts.”

A sickening chill worked its way through Adam’s chest. “I don’t share well.”

“Neither do I,” Sam said, then he turned and looked Adam in the eye. “But we agreed to do what’s best for Tommy. If he needs us both, then we give him that.”


***

NOTE: Gypsy's fic has been removed from the internet.

Riversbend - for sweet schmoopy porn and the best of the high school AUs

You Only Live Forever (explicit, 69,000 words)

Adam hasn’t seen his best friend Tommy much since his family moved to the other side of LA when they were eleven, and hasn’t seen him at all since Tommy’s thirteenth birthday party. Then Tommy calls out of the blue and Adam discovers the whole thing where he thinks he’d like to kiss a boy someday isn’t just theoretical. But Tommy’s changed a lot since they were little, and Adam isn’t always sure what he’s thinking.

A story of friendship, love, sex, and figuring out who you are.

*

Take A Step Before You Leap (explicit, 41,000 words)

Tommy has always insisted he's straight, but he’s an open-minded guy. He has all kinds of friends, and he doesn’t judge any of their actions or preferences. So why is it so difficult for him to accept his own attraction to Adam? This is the story of their relationship, from the first audition to the end of the tour.

*

When Love Fails (explicit, 158,000 words - cowrite with Sulwen)

What starts as rebound sex quickly turns into a downward spiral of co-dependent addiction. Adam and Tommy both bring heavy baggage to their relationship: Adam is being pushed harder and harder every day by an unsympathetic manager and is starting to long for the no-consequences life of anonymity he’s left behind, while Tommy carries the weight of a string of infidelities and personal insecurities. Their relationship takes them to a darker place than either of them could have imagined.
