When you revisit old ships and realize ‘wow they’re still very beautiful’

but then you also whisper quietly to yourself ‘not real’ and think about it for .03 seconds and then throw that terrible toxic thought into a trash can

Top 20 All Time Favourite Fics

Contains muliple ships and fandoms. 
Sterek, Destiel, FiKi, Bellarke, Olicity, McShep, Malec, Hictooth, Bagginshield. 
I should just mention I’ve read all these fic’s MULTIPLE times, like stupid amount multiple. 

1. The Best Years of Our Live, My Ass - ireallyhatecornnuts
Destiel. I read this fic all the time, it’s fanstastic. Love all the family elements, the plot is great, the relationship is cute and totally them. It’s just a perfect fic. 

2. Divided We Stand - KouriArashi
Sterek
. Also another I’ve read mulitple times, it’s just so good. I could read this a thousand times and never get bored. This is one of the greatest fics (and series) I’ve ever read. 

3. Cornerstone - Vendelin
Sterek
. Read mulitple times, always amazing, always makes me smile and cry and gives me all the feels. It’s sweet, accurately describes mental illness, it’s got steamy sex scenes and is a little heartbreaking. All you need in a fic. 

4. Angels Among Us - Vaerin
Destiel.
This is always such fun to read. I love all the Asgard chapters, love the chimera, all the squabbling between Angel parents. All The Wing Love! It’s full of fluff and a bit of heartbreak, but it’s amazing! 

5. Our Lives Are Changing Lanes - grimm
Sterek.
I adore this fic, it’s so sweet and I love me some Single Parent Derek Hale. His daughter is a mini version of him and I love Stiles trying to win her over. Also the dates are adorable, and Cop Stiles is amazing! 

6. Hitchups - AvannaK
Hictooth
. One of the best thing’s I have ever read! It starts in the middle of the HTTYD movie, from there it just takes off! Hiccup and Toothless travelling around, growing up, learning to fight and all the mystical creatures! This is just as good as the movies! 

7. Cas, You Had A Baby? - allthebeautifulthings9828
Destiel.
Cas stealing a fledgling and raising it with Dean is perfection. Then they make this little community of baby angels and get the safe, happy life they always deserved. It’s beautiful. 

8. As Luck Would Have It (I’m Already Smitten) - Whisper91
Sterek.
A Perfect Dom-Sub universe. It’s fluffy, perfect amounts of the BDSM universe, and some interesting plot. Love all the Hales and the pack feels. The Liam and Derek / Stiles scenes are too cute! Still a WIP but it’s amazing! 

9. How Dean and Cas Got Fake Married - allthebeautifulthings9828
Destiel.
Clearly this author know’s how to write amazing Destiel fics! While I do kinda wish there were some sexy times, the fic is still amazing without them. I love them living a normal-ish life while still kinda hunting. It’s just great, okay?

10. The Boy and The Beast - Dira Sudis
Sterek.
Derek stuck as a wolf is my favourite. The kind of season 1 retelling with Derek actually kind of earning Scott’s trust, and totally dating Stiles is amazing! 

11. Nightfall - Leletha
Hictooth
. Hiccup got taken as well as Valka. Feral Hiccup not knowing he’s human is amazing. All the dragon talk and how much Hiccup and Toothless adore each other is so cute. I just love this fic, okay? It’s amazing! 

12. Convenient Husbands - Annie D
Destiel.
I just love creature Cas. He’s so snarky and sassy and Dean is happy (which should be canon, he deserves some happy). I love how they interact with each other and the Roadhouse sounds awesome! 

13. Raven Feather, Lion Heart - KiliDurin
FiKi.
Feral Kili is amazing, Fili being all princely is great. The Durin family is awesome and I love all the dwarven culture. Also, friendly warg is everything! 

14. Max Two ‘Verse - heartsdesire456
Malec.
omg, this series is so freaking cute. Alec adopting baby Max, then Magnus adopting Max and Alec. Max is adorable. I love seeing the Lightwood-Bane’s growing into their little family. It’s sweet and just everything good you could want! 

15. Opposites Attract - goldenlionprince, liddie
FiKi.
This is one of the sweetest fic’s I’ve ever read (and re-read). It’s so fluffy and so unbelievably adorable. Plus, Punk-ish Fili is amazing! 

16. Raising Madison Series - MrsHamill
McShep.
This series is so great. I love dad!Rodney, and Sheppard is such a good step-dad. The series is all family feels, and amazing Atlantis life. 

17. I’m Not Asking Much Of You - emmylou
Bellarke.
This is my favourite Bellark fic. It’s so sweet, and I love the fake-relationship, it’s also kinda sexy at points. Hello, Bellamy giving Clarke a lap dance, then vise versa. Also love the Clarke Raven friendship. 

18. What Happens In Vegas… - redtoes
Olicity.
I’m not super into Arrow anymore, but this fic has always been amazing. It’s refreshing to see a fake-relationship that isn’t incredibly angsty. It’s sweet and has a good plot, all around great. 

19. Convincing A Hobbit - seekerluna
Bagginshield.
I don’t read much Bagginshield but this is so freaking amazing! I love courting fics, and the drawven and hobbit courting rituals are amazing. Also Fili and Kili being adorably childish. 

20. Settle Down - wearing_tearing, whatthehale
Sterek.
I love mpreg fics, and Daddy!Derek is so cute. Love their building relationship and merging of the packs. Everything is sweet and adorable. 

So there you have it. My All Time Favourite FanFictions!

Another humor video!!  I’m currently working on a heavier, Rodney-centric video and decided to lighten the mood for a bit by editing this.  I hope you enjoy!  I love these Space Idiots so much - such sassy space nerds!!

  • Rodney: Well, in other news, a mirage of a door has appeared in the East living quarters. Everyone can see it, and it won't go away, but we've proven through both records, and science, that it does not exist.
  • John: ...is... is it hurting anyone?
  • Rodney: Nope, but we've got it under surveillance. Your marines are standing out front of it daring each other to knock on the door, but they're all too chicken to do it.
  • John: Oh god.
  • Stargate Atlantis Writer: Ha! We will write an episode where John has a love interest! This will thwart those nasty slashers!
  • Joe Flanigan to David Hewlett, probably: So yeah, if you give me a look like this at this point in the script, then I give you that look here, I bet we can make this whole thing sounds really gay.

anonymous asked:

I lolove your John and Rodney art. Do you have any favourite fan fictions that you would recommend?

Hi there!!  First - THANK YOU.  I’m happy that you like my art; it’s always fun to see people’s reactions to it :)

Second - I had to dig a little bit for this because I’m actually horrible at bookmarking fics I like!  @callunavulgari - this is an excuse for why I didn’t recommend stuff sooner, too.

But, here goes!  I’m sure I’ll be leaving a ton of stuff out that I just can’t think of in the moment, so maybe I’ll do another one of these later.

(NOTE: Under every title is a short reason why I personally like the fic and then a brief summary.)  


IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:

Junk Cheap by Devil Doll

(Slacker!John is a big weakness of mine.  Also “crap - the lazy & annoying neighbor is also hot and very attractive” trope.)

If you were thinking you’d love to read an AU where Rodney is a college professor and John owns a junk shop, this is the story for you.

Transcendental by astolat

(HOT and PERFECT characterizations.  Maybe my favorite McShep fic.)

After a chemical attack lands Elizabeth in stasis, Rodney takes charge of Atlantis.  John reluctantly, hesitantly, and happily works at his side as the Genii become a bigger problem.

Ordinary Life by astolat and Speranza

(Second favorite McShep fic of all time, I think.  You should just read everything by these 2 authors.  They never disappoint.)

Rodney is working on a classified project on Earth.  John tags along for ‘company and protection’ (in all definitions of those words).

Mosquito, Gnat and Midge Season by esteefee 

(I think this subconsciously sparked my desire to write Depart & Act when I read this last summer actually?  It’s a wonderful AU that made me smile a ton.)

Senior Special Agent and unbonded Sentinel John Sheppard gets called up to chase a fugitive headed for the Canadian border. Unfortunately, this means working with Corporal Rodney McKay, RCMP—a Mountie, Guide, and royal pain in the ass.

All The Way To The Bone by respoftw

(I always love seeing Rodney’s passionate mind and heart directed into new AU ventures and tattoo artist fit him so well!  I also have personal feelings having beta’ed this one xo)

John is ready for a new beginning and he wants the tattoo to commemorate it. Too bad the address that Ronon sent him to looks more like an accountants office than a tattoo parlour.

Benched by Speranza

(Rodney!Whump is life.)

Captured by aliens.  Rodney is tortured.  John is livid.  Especially when Rodney kisses him and pushes him through the gate without warning.

The Work of Mourning by Popkin16

(If you feel like crying over how much Rodney loves his team, this is the fic for you.  Life and loss and never giving up on John always gets me right in the gut and heart!)

Once a year, per tradition, the expedition gathers on a pier, paper lanterns in hand.

Pegasus Non-Verbal by igrab 

(Adorable and always makes me really happy.)

AU where Rodney is mute from the beginning of the Atlantis program.

The Labeling Approach by deltacephei 

(FUNNY and really great characterization.)

Post-it note flirt-pranking that is highly adorable.


AND OF COURSE:

Freedom’s Just Another Word For Nothing Left to Lose by synecdochic

I can’t properly summarize this one.  It’s just…ugh, ITS EVERYTHING.  I read this for the first time about 10 years ago and I never forgot it.  It makes me cry no matter how many times I’ve read it and in light of circumstances in America right now, learning where your limits are and pushing them to the breaking point so you can make yourself stronger is very, very apt.

A few things I wanted to mention about S4E4 ‘Doppelgänger’ when Rodney and John are both inside John’s nightmare:

a) John’s nightmare includes Rodney dying (and we see John walking around in complete shock/numbness after he thinks McKay is dead) and it being his fault.
b) no, no hot chicks in John’s dreams Rodney. Just you saving his life.
c) John’s own slight confusion about b).
