Delivery
by noveltyhorns
and
How Karkat Vantas Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Con Air
by urbanAnchorite
because i think you're ready for some Human-Troll Relationships In Space now

Cherchez La Femme
by Blue_Thallium
if you're not feeling the trolls yet, scale back to a pwp featuring some human siblings and some Cybersex (webcam-style)

Rita, Bob, and Mary Sue
by paraTactician
or one featuring some human siblings and an alien and some Cybersex (fanfiction-style)

Puppy Training
by CapriciousPancake
or one featuring some human siblings and a human/dog hybrid and Rimming and Knotting but no cybersex or aliens

Say, Lady, the Tentacles Ain't Half Bad
by kayliemalinza
or one featuring a magical girl and a human/dog hybrid and Tentacles and yes i'm just running down some popular Tropes okay i thought it might make you feel more at home

Stabdads
by lucky_spike
and now for something completely different in which i will introduce a third alien species to you via the friendly delivery mechanism of Hardboiled Noir Kidfic

Clockwork Little Happiness
by DottedLine, Person
everyone in this story is a Human Superhero but most of them are trolls in the canon, not that this should matter if you aren't into the canon (yet) but i would feel bad if i recced it irresponsibly

Taking a Fall
by Laylah, Manisoke
and just to reiterate, one of the best stories i've read this year and definitely accessible as BDSM crosses most boundaries well
