Top Ten Awesome Fanfics *

* yep, not “all-time favourite”, because I cannot choose in all objectivity only ten fics. This list is a list of ten fics* chosen in my five main fandoms that I love and feel like they should be read, but it could have been ten others … It’s very hard to choose. One day I’ll do a real masterpost fic rec …
* yes, I’ve cheated. There are waaaaay more than just ten fics here … Sorry not sorry.

The lovely @justkeeponthegrass had a brillant idea : to make a collection of our favourite fanfics to show writers just how much we appreciate, respect and admire their work. I personally owe a great deal to fanfic writers, especially in the Merlin fandom, for they helped me get through a very hard period of my life. Fanfic writers have been and are constant companions of my life, whether I’m sad, happy, tired or feeling excited, they always deliver, they are amazing people who do an amazing work just because they like it. I admire the hell out of any of you, and the following ten titles, plus the special and honorable mentions, are me trying to tell you how much you mean. Very, very long post incoming …

Summary:

“Well, what?” he challenges lightly. “Gonna tell them all to hells with the law? Leave the Night’s Watch to what?”

“To go home,” she answers, drawing up her knees to hug them for added warmth. “That’s what I’ll do.”

“Well, then you haven’t got much sense,” he tells her softly. “That’s a right stupid plan.”

“So was sneaking into the King’s Hand’s tourney.”

My personal JAIMExBRIENNE fan fiction list

All credits go to these amazing authors. Enjoy!

ONE SHOTS:

*searching for a heart of gold by janie_tangerine. Involves Jaime defending Brienne’s honour and knighthood. Amongst other things. Words: 8745.

*Home is Wherever I’m with You by BrienneofThrace. Jaime and Brienne’s first kiss takes place at the top of the Wall. Words: 5815.

*The Warrior by researchsociety. Honestly the best smut fic I’ve found for this ship. There is intense feels too. Words: 4298.

Valkyrie by pearypie. Intense sweetness! Jaime’s thoughts before he meets Brienne at siege of Riverrun. Words: 999.

*For Honour’s Sake by coaldustcanary. A simple story about how Jaime and Brienne try to keep each other warm in a blizzard. Smutty-smut-smut! Words: 6970

i carry it in my heart by bergamot. Season 7 spoilers! A much need filler taking place between the second last and final episode of the season. Words: 3390.

Blossoming Roots by gnsiophobic. Desperate tale of survival in winter with a more established version of JaimexBrienne. Words: 5110.

He Chose Honor by 13letters. “She was always so stern. Stalwart. Strong. Stoic.” Words: 2618.

MULTI-CHAPTER STORIES:

The Higher Education of Brienne of Tarth by BrienneofThrace. I usually hate modern AU’s, but this one is an exception. An easy read and deliciously fluffy. Words: 8377.

*Of Ignorance and Honor by twistedkaleidoscope. This fic is funny and sentimental - especially the end of the last chapter. The story is unfinished, but that last chapter is really packed with feels and worth a read. Words: 7585.

The Covering Sky by Rellie. The most-praised and popular fan fiction in the JaimexBrienne fandom - and with good reason! A definite for this list. Words: 136 469.

**Sworn by the Noose by gnsiophobic. Book-universe fic where Brienne takes Jaime to the Quiet Isle after making an oath with Lady Stoneheart. I was hooked from the first sentence. This author writes just like George RR Martin except he/she does not leave out the tenderness I feel Martin sometimes lacks regarding romance. Words: 24 908.

**Remember: Spring Swaps Snow for Leaves Unknown author (full story explained in the A/N’s). I am a sucker for angsty stories but this story caught me off-gaurd. I was still upset three hours after reading it. This story is ridiculously beautifully written (and an absolute must-read!) but be warned: “the tissue warning needs to be taken seriously.” Words: 28 769.

Obstructed View by AlynnaStrong. Very strong start but the story drifts a bit later on. It is still incomplete, so my opinions might still change. Still worth a read. Words: 28 898.

Nights Without Armour by bratanimus. An unlikely dream team - Jaime, Bri-Bri, Pod and Sansa - go on a quest to make someone Queen of the North. Background Podrick/Sansa; which is very interesting indeed. Words: 32 285.

A Septa’s Advice by Currawong. Jaime comes to Tarth after the war is over. “A gentle romance between two people who have travelled a long way together.” This one is fluffier than a newborn unicorn. Words: 11 481. 

*one of the better ones

Creation of the angst tag. Created March 25, 2017. Number of Recs: 5


To What End? by  LoveNicolette | R:M | W: 5K+ | 5/?

After the war, Gendry has begun to be content with the life he’s built for himself within the walls of Winterfell. That is, until Arya unexpectedly returns to show him all that he’s been missing.

The Lost Princess by  mophieisreal | R:M | W: 1K+ | 1/?

… Winter is here, the north reunite and so does the Stark, I am most happy to present you my dearest sister, the lost princess Arya Stark”
The crowd cheer and applaud filled the great hall but all his senses seems to blackout except for his sight. 

Gods by  Littleladie97 | R:T | W: 1K+ | 1/1

He looks straight at her once again and she swears nothing could be as beautiful as the look in his eyes in this moment.
He feels words beat against his chest and he bites his lip to keep them from spilling out: I missed you. I wish things could be different. I love you. I will always love you.
He ignores the emotions that are tearing through his heart and utters the words that scream at him in his mind, “You deserve better. You deserve more than a bastard who grew up a smith.”

Storms May Draw Us Closer by JonsaInTheNorth | R:G | W: 1K+ | 1/1

There is love all around Winterfell, but Arya still aches and no one seems to see.

To Keep Warm In The Cold by 13letters | R:M | W: 1K+ | 1/1

“Stupid,” she mutters, but not for the first or last time before she walks off.

Reylo Fic Rec Extravaganza!

In response to a recent ask, behold my really quite massive list of Reylo fanfiction recommendations! I prefer well-written longer fics rated M or above with happy endings, or at least not unhappy ones (rare with this pairing). I dislike anything focused on Ben Solo knowing Rey at Luke’s Jedi Academy (for reasons I cannot explain) and anything with Dark!Rey. Also I tend to prioritize unique premises and length. So this is by no means an exhaustive account of all the amazing Reylo fic out there! These are just the stories that stuck with me, or that were long and kept me engaged at least. It’s up to you to decide if you can trust my taste…

Reylo Modern AU's

I’ve seen a few reylo shippers on the prowl for some modern au’s so I’ve made a recommendation list for yas :3 xx

The Downs and Outs

By:  Rellie and snowfright

Summary: Rey Niima– licensed PI, unofficial dog sitter, possibly living in her car –is working the most interesting case of her career, reuniting the two most famous people on the planet with their missing renegade son. It soon becomes apparent though that after his vanishing act fifteen years before, Ben Solo has simply ceased to exist.

In his place Rey finds Kylo Ren– shadowy SnokeCorp flunky, person of dubious morals, highly allergic to dogs –who seems completely unwilling to patch things up with his estranged parents. Rey’s made a promise though, and come what may she’s going to stick to it…

Whether Ren likes it or not.

Rated: T

Type of AU: Private Investigators

Link: (X)

I’ll Take My Coffee As Sweet As You

By: cazzy

Summary: Rey’s damn proud of her coffee shop, frilly tablecloths and pastel-pink walls included, and if this handsome, sopping wet, leather-clad bad boy wants to encroach on her happiness, then he’s messing with the wrong girl.

Rated: T

Series: Coffee and Leather

Type of AU: Coffee shop

Link: (X)

The Vampire of Starbucks

By: snowfright

Summary: He could, theoretically, be a vampire. If vampires existed. Either way Rey’s rudest and most dismissive Starbucks customer certainly does seem to wear a lot of black. And always appear exactly when she’s been left on her own. She’s pretty sure his name isn’t actually ‘Kylie N.’ or ‘Kai Lauren’ but hey, if she’s spelling it wrong deliberately on his incredibly pretentious order who can blame her?

Rated: T

Type of AU: Coffee Shop

Link: (X)

The Edge of Uncertainty

By: writingramblr

Summary: Rey has been a wanderer all her life, until she found her calling in Environmental Studies at NYU. For the first time in her life, she’s got friends, and a pseudo family, but there’s one thing that could tear it all down.

Kylo Ren has fought very hard to get to a place where he could call himself independent, and he’s nearly forgotten the name he forsook long ago, unfortunately, his past is about to catch up to him.

Rated: M

Type of AU: Coffee Shop/University/College

Link: (X)

Start Again

By: porcelainsimplicity

Summary: When he’d left town, he’d been Ben Solo, and Ben Solo had broken Rey’s heart. But now he’s Kylo Ren, and he’s back in town, and the moment he sees her, he remembers everything they’d had before. But he’s not stupid enough to think that it’s going to be easy to earn her forgiveness, and he’s certain that they’ll never regain what they had before, but he’s going to try. He has to at least try.

Rated: M

Series: Light Up The Dark

Type of AU: University/College/Musicians/Bands 

Link: (X)

His Brown Eyes

By: 13letters

Summary: It sounds a lot like forever, tastes a lot like all their life, a laugh in his throat, her palms in his hands.

His brown eyes are closed, and she’s drinking him in, every part of his soul she can’t touch with her fingers. “How about tomorrow?” she wonders, only partially serious.

To think it all started when she’s eight and he’s thirteen.

Rated: M

Type of AU: Modern setting

Link: (X)

Relic Hunter

By: ForeverDelighted (Me)

Summary: Budding student of archaeology Rey is an expert on Jedi lore. Her skills draw the attention of infamous treasure hunters who want to use her knowledge to discover the lost Sanctum of the Exalted, which is legended to contain a treasure hoard of ancient, sinister relics of the ancient Sith religion.

Rated: T

Type of AU: Archaeology/Relic Hunter

Link: (X)

The Scales of Judgment

By: lackadaisical

Summary: When World War Two breaks out, Rey—young assistant to famed archeologist, Professor Han Solo, and his associate, Chewbacca—finds herself at the center of a conflict she thought far away from her life on the dig. But, her expedition isn’t just digging up ruins anymore; the hunt is on for a holy artifact lost to the sands of time that could swiftly, and destructively, end the war: the Scales of Ma’at.

It’s a race and one made deadly with the stakes stacked ever higher by the entrance of a new competitor: ambitious and cunning ex patriot, Kylo Ren, estranged son of Professor Solo.

Rated: E

Type of AU: 1940’s/Indiana Jones Fusion/Egyptologists/Magic

Link: (X)

The Only Exception

By: CartoonJessie

Summary: A psychiatric ward outside of London welcomes its newest patient - Rey - a homeless girl without a last name or family. All she wants is to return to the streets she calls home, but that is easier said than done. She will need a lot of patience if she is to survive her time in the ward, for she has no intention of mingling with the other patients. However, Rey soon grabs the attention of one of the outcasts in the group - a young man who prefers to be called Kylo. He is prone to anger outbursts, but takes an immediate interest in the girl as he recognizes parts of himself in her. How will they ever recover - and will they find their way to a normal life in society, or escape before they’re ready?

Rated: M

Type of AU: Psychiatric Ward

Link: (X)

Spotlight

By: on_my_toes

Summary: Rey wakes up from an accident to discover two equally horrifying things: the last five years of her memory are gone, and somehow in those five years she ended up married to world famous movie star Ben Solo. But as she struggles to reclaim the lost pieces of her past, she is slowly but surely discovering that everything in her happy, well-publicized marriage is not what it seems.

Rated: T

If you have any recommendations please feel free to add them :D xx

anonymous asked:

can you recommend some reylo fics? thank you :)

Somewhere along the way I have become Modern AU trash so:

  1. we’re a mirror pair, me and you by bittersnake (MATH JOKES! ACADEMIA! WITTY BANTER! MY LIFE)
  2. Janus by englishable (the apartment AU to end all apartment AUs, so tightly written and vividly characterized)
  3. Nine Lives by on_my_toes (broke me and put me back together again tbh, also a huge fan of the author’s current WIP, Spotlight)
  4. The Great Big No by dietplainlite (author truly gets the music industry and the subcultures and it is glorious)
  5. Jakku Java by Copper_Nails (MY FAVE COFFEE SHOP AU)
  6. Satan Wears A Rolex by AquaWolfGirl (Devil Wears Prada AU that delivers just the right amount of assholery from Kylo and not-taking-your-shit from Rey)
  7. His Brown Eyes by 13letters (I’m a sucker for the universes where the OTP grows up together, and the prose in this one is just TRANSCENDENTAL)
  8. Better Lucky by gallifrey_skies (horse racing! Also, Ben Solo is a huge nerd. Also, BEST FIRST KISS EVER)
  9. The Downs and Outs by Rellie and snowfright (super cute and deliciously tropey, I adore it so much)
  10. though it’s just a line to you (for me it’s true) by TheJGatsby (HIGH SCHOOL THEATRE AU GUYS SO LOVELY AND SWEET)
the-reylo-void’s Not-Remotely-Comprehensive Fic Rec List

I’ve been been getting more and more requests for one of these, so I’ll bite. A few notes: 

  • Fics with an M or E rating for explicit and/or sexual content will be italicized (note: some fics listed under the Multichapters/Series (In-Progress) heading currently unitalicized may have sexual content in the future);
  • My personal tastes tend towards drama, angst, and hurt/comfort, with a little bit of tongue-in-cheek humor thrown in. I also have a deep love for Ben Solo/Rey and Kylo Ren’s redemption arc;
  • I’ve organized these as best I can, but they’re not listed by quality, personal preference or anything else, just fics that I’ve personally read and enjoyed as a whole;
  • I’ve done my best to accurately list authors’ names as they’re listed on AO3; if I’ve made any errors (or you’re here on Tumblr and would like your blog linked), please let me know!

7

She told him that she loved him, chapped lips gasping the words she’s held in too long. To the air, to the breath she can feel him hold now that he’s watching her instead of the ceiling with his fingers so close to her wrist. His cheek is resting on her shin, and this is will-they-won’t-they, this is something she’s held onto for too long, him never quite close enough but as close as he’d ever be to her, the epicenter of this fucking explosion and this collision and the point it has to change because he’s been such a goner for natural disasters since the first time they got stuck in that thunderstorm.

She’s sixteen.

She’s in love.

She doesn’t expect him to.. to say anything, or to take her seriously, or – anything.

It’s just that one late night after eight hours at the garage, eight more at the bar, two more to tequila, he drunkenly tried to shake her hand but fell forward into her arms instead, laughing as he slurred that he missed, sorry, but his mouth was so close to her mouth.

She’s said she loves him, and the silence starts to feel calm like the storm is over and for once he’s still, not drumming his fingers impatiently or living like they’ve both known this grave loss that stickers them together, pomegranate juice dripping off her fingers or his mouth as pink as a blood orange,

“Ben,” she tries, her voice so weak. So mouthful of forever and kisses she could soften to forgiveness; she doesn’t meet his eyes because if he doesn’t gaze back at her like she’s hope, like this love between her ribs isn’t blossoming out into his sternum, too, then what the hell has this “Ben,” she says.

“Don’t,” he whispers. “Rey,” he’s drowning here, “Rey.”

And it’s a mistake, she realizes, to look at him.

“Don’t say my name that way,” he tells her like a broken man, like a month from now they won’t be riding in his car and it won’t hit him like common sense, like lightning, he doesn’t ever want to have to be without her, a couple more months and he won’t hold her face in his hands like he’s got hold of her heart, no, she watches him lock his jaw. She watches him turn away from her.

“Not like that, Rey,” he begs. “Don’t say my name like I’m breaking your heart.”
