Stan and his Frenchies!

So, you all know already how I feel about the Stan/Benoît ship. It’s what got me into writing tennis fic in the first place; I will always and forever love it tremendously, write it, and read each and every fic that everyone writes in it.

But at the same time, I’m totally not an OTP-er, and Stan is pretty much my fandom bicycle. (Along with Rafa.) I’ll read him shipped with anyone! (I take that back. Not Nick Kyrgios or Donna Vekic, for diverse reasons.) He’s so friendly with almost everyone on tour, and has such flirty touchy-feely banter with people, that how can you not have ship-goggles when you see him?

(See for example: Roger & Stan’s celebrations after winning Olympics doubles gold and the Davis Cup title (and just them in general). Novak pinching Stan’s butt as he passed Stan during an interview (and other bromantic moments, as well as Stan teasing him by giving him a mini version of the famous shorts). Stan absolutely hosing Ferru down with champagne after a final they played against each other. Stan’s constant smiley flirty banter with French-speaking umpires. Stan cuddling Seve and dipping him in a dramatic hug after Davis Cup. All the horsing around and intimate looks and hilarious moments and cuddles and celebratory hugs he and Magnus do. ETC.)

SOOOO. I recently donated in the Fight Back Fic auction, and decided to ask for a fic of either Stan/Jo or Stan/Gaël. Since they’re such rarepairs, my writer asked for me to talk a bit about their relationships, and thus this squee post/ship primer was born! :)

come right this way! )

I just realised that I've got behind in posting fics on LJ. Oops. :) Here are two Stan/Benoit ficlets from October and November.

Title: the most stylish man in the world
Ships: Benoit Paire/Stan Wawrinka
Word Count: 511
Rating: General Audiences
Summary: Stan and Ben get married, and Ben worries about whether he'll be outshone by Roger. (Total unabashed fluff.)
Disclaimer: None of this is real.

Title: i love the smell of gluten in the morning
Ships: Benoit Paire/Stan Wawrinka
Word Count: 676

Title: as bright as the stars
Ships: none
Word Count: 663
Rating: General Audiences
Summary: Last time they came, he went straight out in the boat after they left, staring at the water.
Character(s): Rafa Nadal
Disclaimer: None of this is real.
Notes: So I ended up failing at Ten in Ten, but I'm trying to get "ten in twenty days" instead (or ten in thirty, depending on how writing goes). I forgot to post this one earlier when I posted it to AO3, so have it now. :)

Enjoy!

Title: the best-laid plans of mice and men
Ships: Benoit Paire/Stan Wawrinka
Word Count: 5000
Rating: Teen
Summary: Benoit doesn’t get bad ideas. It just doesn’t happen. He's constitutionally incapable of having a bad idea; it’d be going against nature, like Andy Murray making it through a match without an audible obscenity, or Rafa getting a code warning for smashing a racquet, or Roger going on court in piratas and a sleeveless shirt.

He explains this to Stan, who blinks at him and continues to slowly stir his coffee.

Disclaimer: None of this is real.
Notes: 1) This fic is entirely outside the universe of la vache et le dauphin. 2) Everything is 'actually' in French except where otherwise stated.

Enjoy!

Title: to everything there is a season
Ships: David Ferrer/Feliciano Lopez
Word Count: 1,628
Rating: Teen
Summary: In which Feli is not allowed to have hot sausages and coffee without putting clothes on, David muses about the seasons, and they have a race to see who can tweet Rafa congratulations for his USO win first.
Disclaimer: None of this is real.
Notes: 1) Inspired by Feli and Ferru's tweets to Rafa this morning. Which really were posted at exactly the same time. 2) Both of them are actually speaking Spanish, of course, but since I don't, everything is 'translated' into English. :)

Enjoy!

Title: the fire of a thousand suns
Ships: Benoit Paire/Stan Wawrinka
Word Count: 1,402
Rating: Teen
Summary: When Benoit loses to Kei Nishikori in the Round of 32 at the French Open, it's a horrible, frustrating, painful match. Afterwards, Stan should be getting ready for his own match, but he interrupts his preparations to go to Benoit's side.
Disclaimer: This is fiction and the characters in it are fictional.

Notes: So this is, as you might guess, a cathartic piece written in the immediate aftermath of Benoit's loss to Kei. But you don't need to know the details of that loss to understand this fic. Except that Benoit got docked a point on set point in the second set due to a coaching violation (he'd already got a code warning for racquet abuse, that was why a point was taken). He was not happy about it - or about the rest of the match, really.

As always, imagine this to be a translation of the actual French. :)

Title: fly toward a secret sky
Ships: Benoit Paire/Stan Wawrinka
Word Count: 3,019
Rating: Teen
Summary: The thing about the "if you hurt him" speech is that it's pretty terrifying when delivered by someone who could literally knock your head off with a tennis ball.
Disclaimer: This is fiction and the characters in it are fictional.

Notes: As always, everything is happening in French and this is a translation. ;)

Hope you enjoy!

fly toward a secret sky (benoit paire/stan wawrinka)
polkad0tting: (Default)
Title: as you wish
Ships: Benoit Paire/Stan Wawrinka
Word Count: 10,460
Rating: Mature
Summary: Five times Benoit told Stan to stop thinking, and one time Stan had an answer. (Or maybe twelve times, or sixteen. Oops.)
Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction. Nothing is implied about the actual Benoit and Stan or any minor characters.

Notes: So this fic kind of grew and developed a mind of its own. It was initially supposed to be a cute little vignette focusing on Stan's win over Andy, and then, well, it grew into something massive and shaggy and took nearly a month to write. Oops. Hopefully it's still a tiny bit charming, because goodness knows the boys continue to be. :)

As always, imagine this fic to be a translation of what's actually happening (as that would be in French). It follows on that you can rely and becoming stanley; technically you could probably read it on its own, but I'd recommend reading the other two first.

On to the fic! :D

Title: mon copain suisse
Ships: Stan Wawrinka/Benoit Paire, Roger Federer/Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer/Rafael Nadal/Benoit Paire/Stan Wawrinka
Word Count: 1,361
Rating: Explicit
Summary: Stan’s not entirely sure how this happened. He’s pretty sure it’s Benoit and Rafa’s fault, though.
Disclaimer: None of this is true, and nothing is implied about the lives of the actual Stan, Benoit, Roger, and Rafa.

Notes: This is an AU snippet from the Stan/Benoit universe of on that you can rely and becoming stanley. It should be able to be read on its own, but if you want the Stan/Benoit background, those fics will help (there's also a mini Stan/Benoit ship manifesto in the comments of the former).

As always, everything is ~actually in the appropriate languages and this is a translation. Also, this is set some unspecified distance in the future - it takes as its beginning the idea of Rafa and Benoit becoming friends in the upcoming Barcelona tournament, but I'm thinking this is some time after that, when nobody's injured and Benoit and Stan aren't quite as newly-together.

Enough chatter! :) Here's the fic at AO3:

mon copain suisse (benoit paire/stan wawrinka/roger federer/rafa nadal)
polkad0tting: (Default)
Title: becoming stanley
Ship(s): mainly Stan Wawrinka/Benoit Paire, also Stan Wawrinka/Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka/Rafael Nadal, Rafael Nadal/Roger Federer, Mirka Federer/Roger Federer
Word Count: 4,937
Rating: M
Summary: Three questions about relationships that Stan deflects, and one that he answers without being asked.
Disclaimer: This is a fictional story about fictional characters.

Notes: So this started out as "why Stan didn't use to like cuddling but now he does", and then had to get completely rewritten. It also would have been up earlier except Stan's actualfax matches distracted me, including his amazing and triumphant win over Andy Murray (which promptly made me want to write all the celebratory Stan/Benoit PWP in the world, so expect to see that fic up soon as well, haha).

This fic is set in the same universe as on that you can rely, and I'll probably get around to combining them into a proper series at some point (most likely when the celebratory sex fic is done), but it should also be able to stand alone. For background info on Stan and Benoit, though, and the beginnings of a shipping manifesto for the two of them, see that fic.

All right, enough talking! :) Here's the fic at AO3:

Summary: Stan ends up winning in Casablanca, if not perhaps in a way he might have originally anticipated. (Also he and Benoit may just have concocted a plan to conquer the world together, but shhh.)
Disclaimer: This is fiction. None of this is true.
