Does anyone have Generation Kill recs?

Raylan Givens
Does anyone have Generation Kill fic recs? My OTP is Brad/Nate.  I love stories, especially AUs  where Brad is Nate's bodyguard, where Brad and Nate have great chemistry, and Nate knows it, and he really wants Brad, but he's being all Nate-like, and Brad flirts with him all the time.  The one's I've really liked so far are:

You Will Be For Me and I Will Fight For You by hackthis - assassin AU where Nate is Brad's handler

Semper Fidelis Familia by hackthis - mob AU where Nate is the boss's son, and Brad is his bodyguard.  And the mob is made up of ex-Marines.  It's epic.

The Road Not Taken by hackthis - AU in which Brad talks Nate out of joining the Marines when he's in college, and then Nate becomes a professor and ten years later Brad shows up in his class.

And My Glory Shall Be Love by beyond_belief - AU in which Nate is the Vice President, and Brad is hired to protect him.

Noblesse Oblige by alethia - After Iraq, Brad became a reporter who pissed off his boss, and as such he is assigned to write about the DNC, at which Nate, a retired Marine/attorney/politician is speaking.  So basically, reporter/politician AU.

A Crowd Is Not Company by chlorate - Early 19th century AU.  Brad is a farmer, and Nate is the teacher boarding with him.  Less flirting, but plenty of UST.

These are all awesome, and if you know of anything like these, or any awesome fic at all,  I would be eternally grateful if you would point me in the right direction.

I don't follow the fandom but have you checked 'archive of our own?' for fics. They usually have really good ones.

1.) OMG, you're alive!
2.) Thank you, I can't believe I haven't thought of that. They have the best stuff :)
3.) You should totally follow the fandom. Lots of slash potential; dirty, sweaty, uniform-wearing man candy; and an abundance of man!angst and eye-fucking. It's a fangirl's dream.

::waves:: Glad you liked the fic!

As for recs...oh, do I have recs. GK fandom is the best ever - fantastic writers, no drama...no other fandom will ever live up to it.

Here's my Master List of Recs. And part 2 (because there are too many good stories and I ran out of room).

Since you like AUs, you should run to read Sixteen Days in September (B/N, NC-17) by tevere. It's a little darker, but it's epic and it does have Brad protecting Nate. Most importantly, it's superb.

I've collected a whole bunch of recs posts from various places, so I'm just going to link you to my GK Recs section of my LJ memories. There's also a recs and requests tag over at the main comm, which may be helpful.

Enjoy!

I am currently owned by this fic by softshinythings. It's a college AU crossover with Band Of Brothers and The Pacific, and it's glooorious. oxoniensis has a couple of great fic lists on her journal, and there are a number of still active fandom communities about the place, namely generation_kill and gk_fanworks. I can do a list of my favourite fics so far but I'd have to go through them and they are interspersed with Brad/Ray fics, sooooo... yeah. Might take a while lol!

Hope you find what you're after!

Recs and Request
This list is great! A couple I've hit before and a couple new ones I can't wait to sink my teeth in. I've been looking for one on a few other rec lists with no luck. I remember nothing about it but the plot. Basically, Nate comes out and Brad comes looking for him. He finds him in a bar on a date but gets his man, and as they leave the bar you find out he brought Ray and Poke as back up. Any ideas?
