And then Regina says, “And she’s so, so good. Just like you in that regard.” She turns shining eyes toward Emma and Emma forgets how to breathe. “She wouldn’t think twice about offering herself to her worst nightmare to save her parents,” Regina murmurs, her hand reaching out instinctively to cover Emma’s. “It’s how I know she’s still hiding in you somewhere.”

She turns back to the fire, her eyes far away, and Emma’s never wanted so desperately to be someone else.

If it's not too much bother do you have any fic you could recommend where you can just see them falling in love? Where the author truly shows that process?


these are all over the place in terms of genre/theme but they’re all ones that stand out in my memory as having really excellent relationship development (i threw in a few where there’s amnesia or something like that and they have to relearn each other as well)

Summary: A rival family is stealing the Patriarca Family’s Boston shipments and collecting a neat payday five hours away on the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan. But their Don, Dean Winchester, is wary about reaching out to a long-time New York ally. The Russian Bratvas just do things differently. The young Pakhan, Castiel Krushnic, is hard-nosed and very violent and while violence is mainstay in any underworld family, this boss has a special flair for it. It leaves an uncomfortable taste in Don Winchester’s mouth.
But encouraged by his Consigliere, Bobby Singer, he finally relents. The Pakhan is quite different from what The Don was expecting. Dean learns the man’s secret quite by accident and decides to keep it to himself. They have bigger fish to fry as they discover traitors in both of their organizations while their enemy ups the stakes for each of them. And after members of each family are kidnapped, the stakes get even higher.
Betrayed from within leads to exposing long held secrets and when long denied desires are unleashed it puts each of them on a path that will change their lives forever.

I love mafia stories and this one has everything: violence and betrayal, trusted friends and bitter rivals, territories and alliances. Most of all, The Families. Dean and Cas are powerful and violent men, in a world where even a hint of weakness is unacceptable. When they meet, it is bloody. Dean is no saint, but Cas as the head of the Russian Bratva was fucking scary – and sexy as hell. Oh…and he is an omega.

Yup - this is an a/b/o story, but man what an a/b/o story! The authors provide a great primer to their world in the first chapter and many of the tropes we love are there such as true mates, scenting (in a really cool way), and such. But far more traditions are shattered than preserved. This story brings together the gritty, dark underbelly of organized crime with the romantic draw of a/b/o in a way that I really enjoyed. 

Finally, this fic is a great example of the cooperation in a DCBB with two authors working with their betas and the artist to bring us this well researched, engaging story. I can’t finish this review without specifically mentioning the the >20 graphic art works created for this fic, so be sure to check them out

calli’s fic picks - 12/7/16

It’s midseason finale day! Who’s excited! And who has a nervous pit in her stomach? (this girl) Oh, I think it’s gonna be good. But I’m always at least a little bit on edge until I know the shape of things. I hear Arrow won’t be back till Feb 1 but I’m actually VERY OKAY with that, it means less weeks off during the back half of the season. All the breaks last season really bugged me. LOL! ANYHOW. Let’s get to the fics. 

A Few Stolen Moments by kitchenhoe - did you say season 2 era smut fic with heaps of angst?? SIGN ME UP! There should be more and this is me sitting here, (im)patiently waiting for an update. I love scenarios like this. 

on the edge (of the devil’s backbone) by @entersomethingcleverhere - this one just finished up. I know I rec’d it before but it’s worth saying again: REALLY GOOD FIC. You can tell she put a lot of thought into this, the plot is good and the end makes you sigh. In a good way! 

Heart to Heart by chasethewind - a wonderful post 5x08 Olicity scene… and let’s be honest we need MORE post 5x08 fics. I’m surprised there haven’t been more, flooding Ao3 with their goodness. But this filled a nice gap for me and hopefully it will for you too. 

The Loves of Oliver Queen by Izzyface - another one that is thus far unfinished but I hope the author continues it. It’s a bit of introspection on the loves of Oliver Queen (and how Felicity rises above all others, of course). 

Whatever by smoakenarrow - I would love more to this fic but even if there isn’t, I was delight with what we got. It’s a college AU where Oliver has a crush on Felicity but she assumes he’s only interested in guys, based on his closeness with Dig, Tommy and Barry. 

It’s the Little Things by @pensandarrows - A 5+1 fic about how Billy and Susan realize that there’s more to Oliver and Felicity’s feelings for each other. Actually pretty sweet. No evil love interests! Unheard of. ;) 

Cramped Spaces by Laurabella2930 - This is a delightful little AU where Oliver is a grumpy flight attendant with a crush on a first class passenger (Felicity, obvs). It gets smutty fast but I’m honestly not going to complain. Noooope. 

Luring liberty by @nightkeepyr - As soon as I saw she updated this fic, I think I had a heart attack. I love all of her smutty little tales and what she does with Smoaking Billionaires is just magic. This chapter this week was purely Olicity and purely SMUTTY. Bless it. 

the light that guides his way by CSM - another MUCH needed post 5x08 fic, but far more focused on the importance of Felicity to Oliver’s journey through that alien dreamscape. Simply fantastic. Give it a read. 

Vows by Abbie - Who doesn’t love Fake Marriage? EVERYONE LOVES IT. This one is canon divergent after season 2 and has been an absolutely delightful read. 

That should keep you guys going! I would like to continue with my rec posts during winter hiatus, but I can’t promise much, especially once I start posting my NaNoWriMo fic, “all eyes on you”. That should be in the next week or two. But I will be here, reading fic and trying to keep you guys abreast of the best things I’ve been reading. Never fear, fic reader is here! 😉

The motions are familiar… Victor realizes its his own dance, the one he had done so long ago when they had first seen each other. Victor is close enough to see Yuuri close his eyes as he skates, for gods do not need vision. Victor has a thought, an urge to skate out to him.

“What is the harm?” He thinks.

Read The Sum of my Heart Here

Inspired by @linddzz’s adorably chaotic fic: in which Newt, our blessed protagonist who does not, and never will truly understand self-preservation, tries to fly on something that is not a fantastic beast. Credence must, as always, protect this man from himself.

Read It Wednesday

Week four already! This is a compilation of all (or mostly all) the fics I’ve been tagged in this week. If you’d like to be included in these, feel free to tag me in your fics! Because these are starting to get a little long, I’m going to put everything underneath a cut. Now onto some amazing works!!

anonymous asked:

Okay hey help me. Tomorrow I have a drive ahead of me and a long wait so I was wondering if you could rec me a few Larry fics! Any amount really, just need something to pick from. Fics that pull you in immediately and won't let you leave. Maybe hate to love, needy harry, friends to lovers, smut or fluff maybe some mild angst, hipster harry, punk Louis or punk Harry.I just need your personal recommendations that fit any of these possibilities.

Oooh I love this kind of requests !! Let’s say :

-These Constant Stars : Louis’ career has nowhere to go but up. He’s living at the height of New York City on the precipice of an epic promotion. Life is good and only getting better. And then one day, things turn disastrous.This is a story about life, death, and punk rockers turned guardian angels. (31k)

- somewhere only we know  : Personal assistant Louis knows something is up with his best friend and employer Harry. And it’s not just his big tour coming up or the ever-increasing womanizing rumors about the popstar. To get to the bottom of Harry’s moodiness, Louis decides he has to kidnap him and take him on a roadtrip up the California coast to Portland.The roadtrippiest road trip fic ever written. Basically an excuse for gratuitous fluff and smut with a pinch of angst tossed in for good measure. (44k) 

- Long Before We Both Thought The Same Thing  :“So are you admitting you love Harry yet?”Louis pauses in the middle of his story about the movie he and Harry went to see last night to raise an incredulous eyebrow. “What are you on about? Of course I love Harry.”Has Zayn lost his mind? He’s been friends with Louis for nearly seven years and Harry for six, under what circumstances did it appear like they didn’t love each other? “Okay, let me rephrase,” Zayn says, an amused little quirk to his mouth like he knows something Louis doesn’t. “Are you admitting you’re in love with Harry yet?” Louis stares at him in bewilderment, mouth working as he tries to form a response. “I…what?”*Or, Louis maybe, sort of realises he’s in love with his best friend of almost twenty years and he maybe, sort of thinks that said best friend could love him back? (36k)

- language or the kiss:  “I’ve heard about you, Louis.”Louis just looked back at him, hands on his small hips, foot tapping out an angry beat on the hardwood floor, a verse just under his tongue, waiting to spill out.  “Yeah?  What have you heard?”  Harry slowly stood up, his long lean body feline as he came forward, slowly closing the two feet between them.  “Yeah…I’ve heard about you.” Harry whispered, so close Louis could smell his cologne, something spicy and fruity, soft and wild.  “You’re the one.”Louis looked up at him; unfortunately he had to look up.  The fucker had about three to four inches on him.  “The one what?”  His eyes flickered from Harry’s intent stare to his wet obscene lips.  Louis wasn’t proud.  But his dick may have twitched a little.  Just a little. “You’re the one to beat.”OR the one where Louis’ the best at everything until Harry comes along and makes him think twice.  About everything. (31k)

- Just Hear This and Then I’ll Go : Former boy band member Louis Tomlinson can’t stand pompous indie artist Harry Styles, but with a new record label to launch he is going to have to endure his pretensions to snag up and coming new artist Liam Payne, who happens to be Harry’s oldest friend. Luckily, Liam seems to be very interested in 78 Records and maybe a little more than interested in Louis’ best friend. Too bad Harry won’t be making this easy on any of them. Or a modern day Pride and Prejudice–Louis is Elizabeth, Harry is Mr. Darcy, Zayn is Jane, and Liam is Mr. Bingley. Oh, and Niall is Mrs. Bennett. Obviously.   (44k)

- never shut us down: Tumblr!AU. Louis is an insecure mess and he hides behind his blog. Harry’s a boy with a personality too bright and he’s everything Louis thought he would hate. They end up falling in love. (32k,)

- even with our oath , Though Harry is glad Liam cares about him, he also really hates that Liam cares about him. Liam’s coworker Louis really isn’t Harry’s type - he probably even listens to commercial radio, for God’s sake.In which Harry and Louis go to great lengths to appease Liam, Louis’s taste in music broadens dramatically, and Harry stops pretending to be a Huge Pretentious Douche all the time. (20k)

Also If you can handle rough sex and Daddy kink, read this (because it’s gonna pull you immediately, this is not angsty, smut is awesome, and hipster Harry,  and it’s long enough for a long drive travel)

- The Night Sky is Changing Overhead : Um, sorry, but I believe that’s actually mine,” Harry said a bit awkwardly, pointing at the cup. The man huffed, slightly narrowing his blue eyes, “Nope, large Americano, dash of cream.” He held the coffee up closer to Harry and honestly, Harry knew exactly what was in the cup because it was his  coffee. “Right,” Harry slowly drawled out as if he was talking to a toddler, “Which would make that mine.”“Look, I really don’t have time for this, I’m running late. And this,” he said before he took a sip from the cup, “Is mine.” Harry’s jaw dropped and he held his hands out, failing them slightly, “Wha-you can’t just drink it!” “Well I did, so, do you still want it or can I be on my way?” The man challenged.  Harry shook his head disbelievingly, “Take it, but for the record, it says Harry  on it.” The man turned the cup around and a sharp laugh came out of his mouth, “Well, shit.” He looked at Harry, a smile stretched across his face as crinkles formed next to his eyes. “Thanks, Harry.” (124k)


31 Best Fics Of 2016:

↳7.- Something Great by infinitelymint [@infinitelymint] (31k)

In which a coincidence, instagram, a party, a piano and a planned coming out all come together to make two people fall in love. As it happens, it turns out to be a rather effective combination.

 or, Louis is a student and Harry is the mega-famous singer that happens to post a photo with Louis in the background. Together they kind of break the internet.

(3 chapters, 40k words so far)

Yuuri is at Hogwarts. So is everyone else.

THE HOGWARTS AU WE ALL NEEDED! (i definitely need more though) starts in Yuuri’s 1st year and each chapter is a new school year. Yuuri does ballet, Viktor is really famous, Leo pays Phichit’s smart phone bill. THERE’S MAGICAL FIGURE SKATING. Yurio is Yurio.

Comfort Food (by youaremarvelous) Mature

(5 chapters, 20k words so far)

Viktor is a wildly popular male model who is in crisis over aging out of the industry. He runs into Yuuri, an international university student struggling to make friends in the big city, and decides to make him his pet project.

IT’S MY COMFORT FIC. There hasn’t been much progress yet but I love it already. I’m excited to see where the author’s gonna take us with this.

(Yuuri’s trying to figure out his life after Viktor Nikiforov smashes into it like a meteor, and Phichit can’t decide whether to help or laugh.)

NICE NICE NICE. Yuuri is very confused, Phichit is hilarious, Viktor doesn’t really know what’s going on. Yuuri getting to know and coming to terms with his sexuality AND a bit of him growing up, very nice. READ IT.

Excelsior (by powerandpathos) Explicit

(10/19 chapters, 54k words so far)

Yuuri has won the Grand Prix, which was everything he thought he wanted. But for Yuuri, an end to skating could mean an end with Viktor, and when two female skaters approach them with an offer that could make them or break them, they are put to the test more than ever. Can they rise higher than they already have?

It’s VERY different from all the other fics…I guess it is cause it’s a bit darker? I just really love the plot so far. I’m SO EXCITED for the remaining chapters. Seriously, read it!!!

Editor’s Pick Wednesday

Philes, we wanted to let you all know that Editor’s Pick Wednesday is going to be a little special for the entire month of December.  Rather than posting our usual ‘this is a little bit outside the realm of normalcy’ kind of fics, we are going to use Wednesday as a shout-out to a few lesser known Tumblr writers! 

This week, our Tumblr fandom shout-out goes to @nowwhateinstein !  After a 10 year hiatus, they have recently decided to grace our fandom with a few drabbles and missing scenes, all of which left us screaming for more.  Lucky us!

The story we are rec’ing today is a perfect fill-in-the-blank for FTF, and it left us feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.  Seriously, we wanted to curl up inside of the drabble and just snuggle it.  Read it, enjoy it, and then send the writer some much deserved love <3

Dean and his wife helped the two of you with everything you could possibly need in your new house and life. Dean worked with his employer, getting John a steady job at the garage; despite the chronic limp from the accident that almost claimed his life. Meanwhile, H/N and their son kept you company every day. It didn’t matter what you passed the time doing, you had a family with John, Dean, and H/N; you were happy and safe.

Omg, if AO3 is working I need to know what fic you're reading! Pleeeeeease *big pleading eyes* x


So. Read this : it’s a very long fic (124k, barely angsty, full of smut -and OOMMMGGGg- , and also …. Absolutely fully Daddy Kink and sub Harry. I’m speechless. I mean, I didn’t know chocking could be a thing to me tbh)

Anyway :

The Night Sky is Changing Overhead    , by @domestic-harry : “Um, sorry, but I believe that’s actually mine,” Harry said a bit awkwardly, pointing at the cup. The man huffed, slightly narrowing his blue eyes, “Nope, large Americano, dash of cream.” He held the coffee up closer to Harry and honestly, Harry knew exactly what was in the cup because it was his  coffee. “Right,” Harry slowly drawled out as if he was talking to a toddler, “Which would make that mine.”“Look, I really don’t have time for this, I’m running late.

Fic Rec

Only the Good Die Young (Laurel x Michaela) 

Originally posted by stydixa

“They don’t have much in common, she thinks for a moment. A few not-so-figurative skeletons in their closets, maybe. A handful of secrets they’ll both take to their graves. A similarly shitty taste in men. But out of nowhere, it dawns on Laurel that there’s probably no one on earth who understands her better than the girl sitting before her now.”

Or, post 2x12, Laurel and Michaela cling to each other in the chaos around them, and maybe, just maybe, fall in love along the way.

Can I maybe get a fic rec of stuff made by poc writers? I'm white but I'm trying to support fandom poc more (:

well for starters it’s writers of color, not poc writers. that’s nitpicky, but poc stands for people of color! it’s not an adjective.

and sure! i love writers of color and i definitely know a lot of them. I’ll keep it to three because I’m doing finals rn!

Israa - iluzjonista

first off we have Israa, @blueskysapphic, (fic blog), a Chinese/Pakistani writer, and she wrote To Scale the Blue Sky. This is a Lams fic set in Charleston, South Carolina, in the 1980s at the height of the HIV/AIDs crisis. Israa is genderfluid, bisexual, HIV+, a survivor, and all around just a phenomenal writer. The fic is 25 chapters and a little over 170k words. It’s powerful and honestly the ending punches me in the gut every time I read it, so I definitely recommend it (and not just because I’m friends with Israa).

Featured Fic: To Scale the Blue Sky

Complete? Yes.

Nia - rescuemechinboyandshowmethestars

Okay….I don’t really like chat-fics, but Nia has seriously changed that for me. She wrote Hamsquad™ and honestly??? favorite chat-fic ever. Seriously. It’s just pure fucking fun. It has Elams (Eliza/John/Alex), Mullette (Mulligan/Lafayette), and also Peggy makes out with Rita Ora???? Her tumblr is @irltrash!

Moonz - louisthesixteenth

Fic Rec!

I’m not doing a master fic rec list (yet), but there are two fics I wanna recommend because they are just… so beautiful.

Inertia by @corbaccio (Jearmin)

He rests his folded arms on Jean’s chest, and his chin in the cradle of them. This way, Armin can make out the finer colour of his irises. The shadows his eyelashes cast. It seems suddenly and urgently important to commit Jean to memory, especially like this—with the softness of sleep still on him, gentle and unguarded as he so rarely is. It makes panic well in Armin’s chest. 

Hush by @sugarplum-senpai (Ereri/Riren)

Rain was tapping against the windows.

How he liked this weather.

Those two are so called Morning AU fics and honestly they’re worth a read! The writing is so beautiful, the fluff in Hush is so sweet, while Inertia has slight (very slight) angst at first, but it turns to Jearmin fluff very fast and, all in all, reading both left cozy feelings inside my chest.

Go and read it now and don’t forget to leave a comment! Fics like these deserve much more recognition and appreciation!
