Help with recs?

Hi, I'm putting together 50 Sawyer recs for rec50 and I wanted some input.

What do you think is the fandom cliche when it comes to Sawyer? A fic about The Kiss? Sawyer sharing his last cigarette? Getting drunk? Maybe that's it - getting drunk and playing I Never. Or is it Hurt!Sawyer? (Lord knows I've written those last two often enough myself!) Or the million and one kinky Sawyer/Sayid fics that that torture session inspired?

ETA: I went with "I Never." ;-D

Also, any good fics that fit the "weapons" or "betrayal" prompt?

Thanks!

i think any fic that has sawyer taking a stand on the raft against The Others would fit "weapons". y'know, him and his "just in case" gun.

Such as a certain Han Solo inspired one? ;-D It is a good one!

The first one that came to mind is one I wrote, since it was all about his history with guns. But I don't want to rec one of my own, even though that's allowed. And I guess I've been famliarizing myself with my own archive of fics a lot lately for fanfic100 so that's where my mind went.

Sadly, I don't currently have a Sawyer/Gun icon in rotation.

My Sawyer/Solo icon is the only Sawyer/gun icon I have! *looks for more*

I'm trying to remember which "history with guns" fic you wrote. I'm sure I've read it, I think I've read almost everything of yours, but I can't seem to put my finger on it.

I have about six Sawyer/Gun icons, just not any I'm using right now. He needs to be reunited with his gun, poor boy!

Shoot First is the one I was referring to. I wrote it before we got to know each other, I think.

Good question.

Getting drunk and playing I Never probably is the main Sawyer fic cliche. Hurt/comfort's more of a lifestyle. ;)

Either that, or helping Kate run from the law after they get rescued and she escapes. If you're looking for the bad kind of "this has been done to death!"

I think I'm going with 'I Never' and I have a good fic in mind for that. ;-D I definitely have oodles to choose from!

I actually haven't read any of those kind of future Skate fics but I know they're out there. And I'm trying to find GOOD fics to rec, LOL.

Dude, what about the stereotypical growing-up-on-the-farm-with-grandma fics? ;D

Heh. I already went with "I Never." But I might have to go with Jack-nursing-Sawyer fics as my backup, because we all love them but since I'm trying to write (a variation on) one right now, is there anything new to say...? :-/
