Heartbeat by quackers
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane, AU. "So the guy Ryan sits next to at work is a vampire. That's no big deal, right?" The other intern assigned the desk next to Ryan's is an extremely tall vampire, the only one in their office and first one Ryan's ever met. He gradually gets to know Shane better and becomes more and more intrigued by and concerned about the well-being of the good-natured if periodically morose dude who's generally up for being victimized in BF food and ghost investigation videos. // 66K. Ryan POV. A verrry slow-build relationship fic that works out its own mythology. Eventually it does get around to sexy tiems (featuring blood, natch). Good read.
For something that would prove to be one of the biggest turning points of his life, it was an oddly simple exchange.
“Hey, Shane,” he said, slipping his headphones off one ear.
Shane glanced over, taking his own headphones off. “What’s up?”
“You want to do Unsolved with me? Brent is leaving.”
“Yeah, sure,” Shane said without hesitation, giving an easy shrug.
“It might be a time commitment if it takes off,” Ryan warned. He thought about suggesting that Shane could just do a couple of episodes to give Ryan the time to keep looking for someone more permanent, but Shane was already bringing up his Google calendar.
“Looks like I’m pretty clear for a bit.”
Ryan smiled in relief and started clicking on a couple of his episode files. “Cool.”
The headline of an article caught his attention. His smile grew wider.
“How do you feel about exorcisms?”

Catch My Disease by Rhovanel
What We Do in the Shadows, gen. "Vladislav goes viral. The Beast is not impressed." After Nick introduces everyone to the concept of Twitter, Vladislav takes to the Internet like a possum to trash (literally) to get one up on his ex. // 2.5. Cute. :D

Failure to Communicate by quackers
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. "Shane thinks Ryan knows about his feelings. (Ryan thinks Shane is a vampire.)" // 3.7K. Shane POV. Fic about a fundamental misunderstanding, the sort of thing that always seems to inevitably end in a trainwreck of embarrassment, but this one manages to avoid that -- it mostly stays goofy and sweet.

* What We've Got Here, https://archiveofourown.org/works/16493003 "Ryan still doesn't know if Shane is a vampire or not. He might have become a little obsessed." // 7K, Ryan POV. Ryan coming to terms with the idea of having a relationship with another dude. But also still wondering about the vampire thing. Sort of. Or maybe just about biting.

Honestly, the followup fic bumped the whole thing firmly into delightful territory. I've read it a couple of times now.

The War of Silver and Ash by astolat
Witcher, Geralt/Emhyr. After killing/surviving the master vampire Orianna, Geralt writes a book on the threat posed by vampires, and he delivers it to someone he thinks might be interested. Emhyr, having conquered the known world, is at something of a loose end. // 16K of conspiracy and plottiness. Pretty engrossing extension of the universe, seems like. The shipping is mostly secondary to the main plot. The linked vid immediately sets up the fic, so I think it's a necessary watch, but knowledge of the game in general not needed.

Nice Jerseys and Other Adventures in Knitting by Tarash
What We Do in the Shadows, gen. "Basically, Deacon loves knitting, Anton and Stu and the other werewolves could do with more jerseys that don't tear apart when transforming a little, and the Ravelry forums get another passionate member." // Deacon's Internet and knitting and Stu passions combine. NZ mockumentary/curtainfic about vampires, fic expands on the subplot about knitting in a rather goofy-cute way. Ignore typos.

All the Damn Vampires by LithiumDoll
Brooklyn 99, gen. "It's the little things: glittering skin, cape, fangs. Wolves howling on the roof." // Short, funny. :D
“Wait. What? This is real? You’re actually a vampire. A vampire detective?” Peralta’s smile faded a touch. “That’s been done -- have you considered vampire ballerina?” he couldn’t seem to help adding.
“I knew this would happen.” Rosa tightened her crossed arms defensively. “You’re always saying I don’t talk about myself enough. I reveal one personal thing and everyone goes crazy.”
“In our defense,” Terry pointed out, “that thing is that you’re an unholy, blood sucking creature of the night.”

Interlude With Some Vampires by binz, shiplizard
Discworld, Glenda/Nutt. "Glenda and Nutt in Quirm. Romances aren't as tidy when they happen in real life, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth having." An orc and a pie-maker on a daytrip fall in amongst terribly refined vampires. Some of whom sparkle a bit. And deliver makeovers.
The one bad shock she had was passing one of the curtained alcoves and having it pulled open from inside. A figure lurched out, pale and red-lipped, face in a mask of anguish. She recoiled against Nutt, and she felt something dig into her wrist.
"Antoine!" whined the figure. "Where is the count?"
"Go back to bed, Marcus," Antoine said, unmoved. "You're scaring the guests."
"I must speak with him, Antoine! I am undone!"
"You had another rejection letter," Antoine translated.
"It is treachery. Treachery! Favouritism! I was reborn to play this part!"
"We have guests," Antoine said firmly, and shooed the wine-soaked vampire away like a stray cat. Quirmian swearing echoed down the stairs.
"I-- apologize." He looked nearly sheepish. "Once, this was a theater of the damned. The damnation, we have taken it out, but the theater-- that we could not get out. This is-- pardon me-- a hive of *actors.*"
"We'll brave the danger," Glenda said, not entirely sarcastically.
// LOL. Haven't even read this particular book (Unseen Academicals?), but this was so, so sweet, with loads of sendups of vampire fiction (eps. Rice, Meyer).

Waterloo Sunset by Philomytha
Rivers of London, gen. "This time, the vampires wake up." Nightingale is bitten. As Peter and Walid scramble to find a cure in the face of historical failure, Molly makes a suggestion. // 9K. Fairly tense with an interesting application of "science" to the problem.

Harry Potter and the Inconvenient Condition by Mirabella
Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. "Harry comes back from vacation with an inconvenient case of vampirism and must learn to cope with blood, Malfoy, and recalcitrant secretaries. And if that doesn't tell you everything about the plot you need to know, you haven't read enough badfic." // LOL. I'd not read this one before. It's mildly fun and funny throughout, weirdly enough. (Aaand I'm only now finding out that quite a few of the links for this author are dead. whoops.)

Blue Sunny Day by firethesound
Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. "Years ago, Harry Potter disappeared from the Wizarding World. When Draco spots him at a club in Muggle London, well, he just can't resist the opportunity that presents itself." That is, Harry's become a reluctant, surly, self-loathing vampire; for his own reasons, Draco talks himself into the position of Potter's designated donor.
"What?" Draco pushes at Potter and sits up a little. "What do you mean, it's not working?"
"I mean, it's not working!" Potter says. He snaps his teeth together a few times and then licks them again.
"It should be an instinct. Are you thinking about biting me?"
"Erm," Potter says again and his gaze slides back to the kitchen. "Not really. I was, um, thinking that I’d really like to have some more tea."
Draco flops back against the cushions and rolls his eyes. "You can have tea later. Would you please focus here?"
"Sorry," Potter mumbles, bending his head down again.
// Surprisingly entertaining fork-AU where Harry died defeating the Dark Lord--and stayed that way. By turns it's funny, angsty, smutty, and interesting. Orig. post: http://hp-creatures.livejournal.com/205739.html

Overkill by tsukinofaerii
Marvel Ultimates (Avengers), Steve/Tony, AU. Tony, still dying from his tumor, accepts an offer that maybe he should have refused. Meanwhile, Steve is refusing to admit either of them might possibly be gay for each other, despite a year's worth of one-night stands. // ~Vampire AU based on the Ultimates canon-verse, with an actual plot, which is split 'bout half between Tony on the run from vampires, and Steve wallowing in a full-blown denial routine. There's one short followup fic, and a potential sequel that may be posted someday, judging from au comments (dated 2012). ETA: Should have reminded myself of how much this fic needs a stern beta. Purple prose, body parts and inanimate objects with agency, typos galore, and even the author loses track of what charas are talking about periodically. Fairly awful, but mostly ignorable.

Die Never by entwashian
The Forsaken, Sean/Nick. "Sean and Nick are closing in on the vampire they're hunting, but the virus is growing stronger in Nick." // Cow harm. Postcanon smuttiness with a pointy ending. Wah. (Bit hard to improve on the near-textual slashiness of this movie, but this manages.)

Evil and a Heathen by imperfectcircle
Generation Kill/True Blood, Eric/Ray. "Everyone knew you were supposed to fuck a vampire before you died. It was practically Ray's duty to smoke a little vampire pole for the team. For the Corps. For Uncle Sam and apple pie and Sunday school. And if it was a vampire pole that happened to be attached to six-foot-fuck of Brad-a-like, well, Ray wasn't going to ask too many questions." // Initially I was deeply confused, as in Why on earth would anyone cross these two fandoms? 'Cause I'd completely forgotten that same-actor bit. It's good of fandom to remind me. Unexpectedly good/funny time to be had here. :D

Flying Weight by fleshflutter
SPN, Sam/Dean. Canon-based AU. Sam discovers that when he'd been soulless, Dean had been vamped -- then the two of them had been having sex. He tracks down Dean and then proceeds to make them both miserable with his jealous asshole routine. Argh. // Unreliable Sam POV, plus legit canon vampires! How often do you see that in SPN fics? But still, the Dean-as-abused-spouse thing's a bit iffy.

I’ll See It Through (The Texas Two-Step Mix) by Dee_Laundry
SGA, John/Rodney. So Rodney is a cranky vampire/mad scientist who orders a thrall online and gets John. Then he has no clue what to do with him, so he just uses him as a lab assistant.
"Look, I don't know what you think you're here for–" Rodney frowned when the thrall lifted an eyebrow. "Okay, I do know what you think you're here for, but what I actually enslaved you for was to assist me with my experiments. And yes, I know, vampire here, very sexy, very mysterious, very dashing–" He ignored a snort – "but I'm not going to hold back the progress of science just so you can get your rocks off with an immortal."
// LOL.

American Idol 8, RPS, AU. Kris, as it turns out, is a vampire. But a really ordinary vampire. From Arkansas. (It's a cute idea, but it could use a plot, and it could be funnier. But still, idea is cute.)

Thicker Than Water by morgan32
Supernatural, gen. Yep, vampire fic, but a slightly unusual direction for it -- no porn, just nastiness. Is interesting. A few! exclamation point! ambushes! but the chosen format keeps most of the purple in check. (spn_summergen)
