Slash written in this realm has specific literary requirements that usually can be ignored in other contexts. Specifically, voice and vocabulary and character must absolutely
be perfect - or there's no sense in writing it in the first place.
Following, then, are a few well-polished pearls, most quite accessible to persons of the heteromale persuasion.Jeeves and the Understanding
In which Bertie has a birthday and Jeeves has too much to drink.Thank You, Sir
Sequel to the above. In which somebody finally notices Bertie's pages are missing from the Junior Ganymede club book.
These two stories by Timmerryn (rahball
) are full of the sparkling speech, lightning-fast trouble-encounters, and full use of their respective talents (grit in Bertie's case, and wit in Jeeves's) that we all adore so much in the original stories. Guy-safe. More available on her website, the Blue Pages
ETAWooster's School for Wayward Girls
by Yahtzee (PG)
Sufficient to recommend this one is the following: "One bawdy lass I always ran into at the Algonquin had a habit of saying, 'What fresh hell is this?' I never knew what she was on about, but at this moment I began to glimpse her meaning."Jeeves and the Blessed Indiscretion
Shalott is one of those few authors with the gift of creative mimicry: whatever story in whatever fandom in which she writes might as well have been enscribed by the original author, and this one is no exception. An exerpt: "The rest proved remarkably straightforward, at least when one discounts the cat, the housemaid, and the fire, which was put out long before reaching any of the other residences on the street, and without injury to any of the inhabitants, though I have to call that a pity."My Man Jeeves,
by Sue. Bertie is left desolate when an aunt's butler requires Jeeves' assistance. A portion: "'Come on, old thing,' I cajoled mercilessly. 'This is not the Jeeves past form has led us to expect. Where's the decisive thinker? Where's the old get-up-and-strangle-'em spirit?'"Humble Servant
by Bad Faery is a mite darker, more pensive, and definitely more scorchingly hot than the normal sparkle of suggestion in this fandom. This is not to say that it should not be read! But I will not offer any excerpts.
