My Pathetic But Adorable Big Brother, Hiro: Part I

Older bro!Hiro & Younger bro!Tadashi AU

Prologue Here, Part 2 

AHAHAHAH it finally starts, at a snail’s pace….

Tip Toe

Pairing: Hermione Granger x Draco Malfoy

AU: Modern, non-magical, high school AU

Word Count: 1,223

Written For: muclbloods + the iconic yellow BMW


Draco has loathed Hermione Granger from a safe, perfectly practical distance for about as long as he can remember.

She’d shown up on the first day of sixth grade with her powder-blue Kipling backpack stuffed with five individually labeled plastic folders—fucking color-coded, too—and she’d proceeded to beat him at everything.

Everything.

If he got a 99 on an algebra test, she got a 100. If he was publicly praised by their English teacher for his astute use of simile in an essay, she was invited to participate in a district-wide writing contest. She took pristine notes on college-rule notepaper and she stole the state spelling bee trophy right out of his elegant, neatly-manicured hands after he misspelled the word ‘sanctimonious’ and she won the mock Continental Congress debate in their eighth grade history class—while playing as Alexander Hamilton.

She made him feel like the fucking coyote in those old Saturday morning cartoons; wily and arrogant and always just on the cusp of winning—until she inevitably arrived with her laminated book reports and her environmentally-safe highlighters and her ridiculous fucking ergonomically designed mechanical pencils—just in time to either push him off a cliff or directly into the path of an oncoming train.

He hated her.

Cursed Child Scorbus Rec List

This really has become more of an index than a rec list, with categories of: 

Full length chaptered stories, Series, arcs, collections and short chaptered stories, Atmospheric, poetic, ficlets and drabbles, Pre-slash, Fluff, Established relationships, Flangst, Dark Angst, Humor, Holidays, Coming Out, Smut, Fix-Its/Re-Writes, and AUs

Last time I counted there were over 200 fics on here!

Basically my requirements for this list are:
Is it Cursed Child compliant, in the CC universe or do the characterizations feel close enough to CC?
No disturbing side-pairings or themes (i.e. no dub-con, abuse, drug use, infidelity or major character death. Exceptions will have warnings.)
Is it decently written, easy enough to understand and not cringe-worthy?
Did it make me smile or feel things?
Have I actually read it?

There are many stories, especially multi-chapters and WIPs, that I haven’t gotten around to yet, so this list is mostly made up of one-shots. It is my New Year’s resolution to read longer works. Feel free to add your recommendations in your reblog! Happy Holidays you wonderful little fandom! 

Note: I have categorized these fairly loosely. Some fics may fit into more than one category, but I don’t list them twice unless they are individual parts of an arc. The first section is uncategorized. They are a few of my faves, though I definitely have favorites in other categories like atmospheric and fluff, however these ones seemed slightly more complex and are a bit longer. So consider this category…


A Good Place to Start

*Best Mates- picascribit

“You deserve to be with someone who really likes you. Who thinks you’re brilliant.“

Scorpius grinned. “I’ve got you for that.”

One of the first Albus/Scorpius stories I read after CC, and still one of my favorites. This is Part 1 of Pica’s Scorbus Arc, but it is perfect as a stand-alone. The stories do get more mature.

*The First Date- rainystreetlights

“Still under the impression that you should have been the first to get a girlfriend eh? What can I say… Ladies love me.”

“Ladies tolerate you.”

‘One-Shot set in Albus and Scorpius’ sixth year at Hogwarts. When Rose doesn’t show up, Albus and Scorpius end up going on an accidental first date. Pure Scorpius and Albus fluff. Awkward conversations and a lot of strange situations’.

I love this so much. This author has seen the play and it shows. Her characterizations and dialogue are so spot on. So awkward, adorable and heartfelt!

*The Ball- torestoreamends

‘A ball is being held at Hogwarts to celebrate the end of fifth and seventh year exams. Scorpius has agreed to go with Rose, and Albus shouldn’t be as upset about that as he is. Dancing, fancy robes, obliviousness, and a small sprinkling of brotherly advice ensue.’

This is so gorgeous. Just her description of the robes slayed me. Read everything by torestoreamends!

*Seasons- starlightpeddlar

‘From the moment Scorpius and Albus get on the Hogwarts Express for their fifth year, things start to change. Albus starts to gain confidence both in the classroom and out of it, and Scorpius’ realization that he has greater feelings for his best friend threatens to leave him more alone than he’d ever imagined’.

Wonderful four chapter prequel to ‘Quietly’. Quietly is quite long and intense, but this is a nice getting together story, though it is still quite meaty and introduces important themes for the series.

*Put Your Guns Away Its Tea Time- frombluetored

‘Ginny Potter estimates it will only take three days into the Weasley-Potter family holiday for Albus to act on his feelings for his best friend. Albus estimates it will only take three days for him to die of embarrassment. And Scorpius, well. Scorpius is just glad to be there with Albus in the first place.’

I love this so much! The characters are so spot on and we get to see other Next Gen kids as well as all the grown up characters we love. Come for the Scorbus, stay for Ginny and the whole Weasley clan.

9) N52 Catherine Todd (who was the daughter of a really rich family) met Wills a bad boy who used to hung out around her school and got pregnant with Jason. The two eventually got married before Jason was born (which wasn’t a happy marriage) and like PC Catherine, she become a drug addicted and died because of it.
10) Jason (PC and N52) really loved Catherine and was (and still is) deeply affected by her death. He also blamed himself for her death. 
11) Jason used to be the one who take care of his parents instead of the other way around and never got the chance to have a normal childhood. 
12) Arkhamverse Todds were really bad parents who tried to sell Jason (when he was just born!) to crime lord to buy off their debts, but the criminal wasn’t amused by this and beat up Wills. 
13) When he grow older (and before meeting Batman), Jason sold out his parents to the same crime lord in exchange of him staying out of his territory.

16) Jason read different kinds of books like science, politics, educational, languages…etc, but it’s noted that his favorite type of books is literature. 
17) Jason and Alfred used to have their own book club where they discuss and read Shakespeare.

25) PC Jason was younger than Dick by seven years and older than Tim by two. 
26) N52 and Rebirth Jason’s canon age is between 18-20 years old (yes, he’s actually underage).
27) PC Jason was Robin for three years. He met Batman when he was twelve and died when he was fifteen. 
28) N52 Jason was Robin for only one year like Dick and Tim (yeah, the n52 time line is seriously messed up and it’s better to ignore it). He met Batman when he was sixteen and died when he was seventeen. 
29) Jason smoked when he was a kid, but he never smoked when he returned. 
30) Jason and Dick were never close, not in Pre-crisis, PC nor N52 (because he was fighting with Batman at that time and also because he was jealous of Jason for being adopted by Bruce first while he was just a ward) which was something Dick deeply regretted after Jason died and made him try his best to there for Tim and Damian.

68) Roy was (is?) Jason’s best friend and the person he trusted the most. 
69) Jason and Roy lived with each other for a while, had a joined bank account and even started their own business which was called Red-Arse (yeah, I know). 
70) Jason and Roy actually met each other back in the 80′s NTT and shared a really nice moment. 
70) Jason was NEVER an official member of the teen titans. He only helped them up when Donna asked for his help when he was a Robin. 
71) Jason was supposed to have a little sister in RHATO, but the plan was scratched after Lobdell left the book. 
72) Didio admitted in one of his interview that DC got so many demands for Jason to have his own series and it was the most requests they got for a series ever. 
73) Jason was part of a team called the challengers with Donna, Kyle and “Bob”. He liked Donna, hated Kyle and didn’t trust “Bob”. 
74) Neil’s admitted in one of his interview that the vote which decided Jason’s death wasn’t legit and it was just one person who made the different. 
75) Jason is semi-confirmed to exist in the DCEU. 
76) Bruce Timm confirmed that Tim in the Batman animated series was supposed to be Jason (which is why he was given Jason’s personality and origin) because he liked how different he was from Dick, but he couldn’t call him Jason because he was dead and Tim was the current Robin at that time. 
77) Jason was born in August, met Bruce in February, died in April and was revived in October.
78) Jason was Robin, Red Hood, Red Robin, Wingman, Arkham Knight, Batman and maybe Red X (he was also nightwing at some point, but we don’t talk about this…). 
79) Jason was brain damaged for a year when he was revived before Talia found him and shoved him in the pit which both healed and drove him mad at the same time. In N52, Rebirth and UtRH movie, it was the pit that brought him back. 
80) Jason currently is teaming up with Artemis (not the one from the YJ show) and Bizarro and they called DC’s Dark Trinity in the new Red Hood and the Outlaws series (which I strongly recommend).

Well, that’s it. I don’t know if you guys noticed, but there’s actually no facts related to Bruce and Jason’s relationship because there are so many and felt they deserved their own post which hopefully will be released tomorrow :)

Note: If you guys have any question related to this post, you are welcome to ask me in my blog and I will do my best to answer you.

I think I may I have finished Chapter 23…

It’s shorter than the last few.  Coming in at around 6k words, but it’s done.  I had to go back and rewrite a couple of scenes because they weren’t working, but I think that they are loads better now.

1. Use the lyrics of your favorite song as the basis for a short story. 

2. Write a mystery. Start with a question and write until you answer it. If you don’t know the answer: even better. 

3.Tell this story: “And it was that exact moment that the power came back on…" 

4. Write a scene that starts with the line, "Darling, stop."

23. What if the story started with this? The bomb exploded.

Aozora Clubbing Heart part 2

Plot: Everybody (except Ruby) is shit faced. The night is wild and everybody is lucky Dia is too busy to kill them all.

Pairings:  KananMari, RubyMaru, ChikaRiko, YouYoshiko, Dia x Mystery Girl

SFW: with strong language, adult content [alcohol, sexual innuendos, hot kisses, and a lot of touching] sex happens but it’s not written.

Summary: Ruby cannot believe what’s happening.

7k words

A/N: Still split in everyone’s POVs with some taking longer than others because quite frankly, they were too funny to cut short. Remember this is a college AU and everybody is aged up!


Dia spots a candidate. It’s hard to see well in the club and her beer goggles don’t exactly help, but she doesn’t need much help distinguishing breasts—her only real criteria.

She approaches smoothly, gracefully, working very hard at coordinating her legs and feet. It’s paying off, thank god. She doesn’t trip over herself as she gets close enough that the girl can hear her shy intonations.

“Hi.” Dia can feel her stomach creeping into her throat. The girl glances at Dia with pale blue eyes set afire by the club’s strobe lights. Her features are on point with Dia’s preferences and Dia is quick to admire her long blonde hair, like doll’s hair, left free to fall past her shoulders. She’s tall, but not imposingly so, and Dia guesses she’s probably a few years older than she is. “Are you having a good time?” Dia hopes she isn’t slurring or at the very least that this is actually going as smoothly as she thinks it is.

I’m currently living in South Korea, but I’m actually from the southeastern United States. I would love to find someone to exchange snail mail letters with. I speak Korean and love learning about other languages and cultures.

I’m into fandom things like Sherlock and Welcome to Night Vale, and I’m a fan of Edgar Allan Poe, H. G. Wells, and Shakespeare. I often write fanfiction, and very occasionally an original short story.

I have virtually no interest in math or sports. Sometimes I like learning things about science (especially if I can incorporate it into a story).

I would like to write letters with someone with interests similar to mine, and who is intelligent and not afraid of serious discussions about frivolous issues. :)
