My Favorite Anime

Many of us have watched a lot of anime through the years, but there will always be that one list of anime in the back of your mind that become timeless and close to your heart. No matter how many years have passed they still remain the best of the best,  because let’s be honest, anime is not what it use to be.

This will include series/movies/OVAs. there are also many series in this list that i couldn’t decide which i love the most, so there isn’t a particular order.

Ghost in the shell

I really like the Ghost in the Shell franchise, but the 1995 animated movie was my favorite. the execution of the animation and the story/plot was definitely something special, and no matter how many years have passed it still remains one of the best. The fact that the Matrix was inspired by the GITS 1995 movie supports my point.

The music for stand alone complex by Yoko kanno was awesome.

Rurouni Kenshin - Trust and Betreyal  OVA mini series. (the franchise better known as Samurai X)

You guys have no idea how much i love this OVA, because not only am i a sucker for symbolism and everything that has to do with Feudal Japan,  but because this mini series did a wonderful job at conveying  so much wisdom and depth. It has something poetic about it. to me it’s a masterpiece. 

i have the DVD somewhere around my house, but, i can’t find it and i’m freaking out about it,  cuz from what i’ve heard you can’t find that original version anywhere anymore since it was discontinued , so basically it’s a rare relic.  3 :’D

My recommendations for fall of anime 2017 (based on my first impression)
  • Houseki no Kuni

I’ve seen a lot of people dropping this because it’s 3D, but the colors are beautiful and the story is just as beautiful, I say you should really give this one a chance, go through the first episode until the end, I don’t think you’ll regret it

  • Garo: Vanishing Line

badass MC with really cool animation and the art style is so nice and the plot is crazy af and it’s the good kind of crazy.

  • Inuyashiki

just watch the first episode, you’ll know it’s gonna be good.

  • Juuni Taisen

survival game! with amazing animation and art style, the character designs are really cool, it’s pretty damn nice.

  • Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World

you don’t have to watch the original series to watch this, so you can go ahead and enjoy Kino’s journey, there’s a lot of things to love about this (but the original series is really good, maybe watch that one too?)

  • Net-juu no Susume

this one is so relatable like, SO relatable like oh my god! + it’s funny and cute and it’s most likely going the romance path which is great, because the two of them are just adorable together. I love this one.

  • Mahoutsukai no Yome

need I say more? I think everyone’s already watching this and loving it.

  • Kekkai Sensen & Beyond

this one is the second season of Kekkai Sensen, so if you haven’t watched the first, I highly recommend you do and then come and watch this one.

  • Just Because!

this one has high potential to be a really good romance anime, in my opinion. But if you’re not keen on high school romance, then I guess this one isn’t for you.

  • Code:Realize: Sousei no Himegimi

a princess and a thief and this time around he just wants to steal her heart. Pretty art style.

  • Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau 

the world this anime presents is so interesting and beautiful but despite how beautiful the visuals are, I sense a lot of heartbreaking things coming our way.

  • Animegataris 

I’m not really too sure about this one, but I found myself enjoying the first episode, it’s an anime about people who love anime. It could get really good.

  • Konohana Kitan 

a gay anime about fox girls doing cute things together and falling in love while doing so, worth it.

  • Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou 

two girls, the only ones left in the world, always with each other, trying to survive.

  • Ousama Game: The Animation

it looks okay so far, I say we should stick with it for a few more episodes to see how they handle it because it could get really good

Rebecca's Guide to Starting Star Trek

Holy Representation, Batman! You may have just heard that Star Trek Discovery is happening and it has a black woman as the lead, and Asian woman as the captain, and a confirmed interracial/interspecies gay couple, and you’re gunna watch!

Perhaps you want to start Star Trek now, but shit, there’s 13 movies, seven separate tv shows, all ranging somewhere between 3-7 seasons of 45 min episodes, plus there’s all those comics and novels.

First of all, if you don’t want to do anything other than Discovery, THAT IS 1701% OK. DO NOT LET GATE KEEPING BULLSHIT KEEP YOU FROM ENJOYING THINGS.

But if you do want to start, here’s my recommendations. Other people may have their opinions, but here’s mine.

Start with the movies, sorta. It’s much easier to get through all the movies than all the seasons. But, I say sorta, because don’t actually watch Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The first movie is just, well, it’s not great, and there isn’t enough plot to justify sitting through it. One day, for kicks and giggles, go back and watch, but for now, leave it alone.

What you’re gunna do is replace the first Star Trek movie with a few episodes of The Original Series (TOS).

You’re gunna do:

Space Speed (Season 1, ep 22)

City on the Edge of Forever (season 1, ep 28)

Amok Time (Season 2, ep 1)

Journey to Babel (Season 2, ep 10)

If you wanna toss one out to get to the movies faster, City on the Edge of Forever isn’t like, super plot important, but it’s generally considered one of the best episodes of all the series, and I think it’s really good for understanding characterization.

THEN START THE MOVIES

You’re gunna watch 2-6, and then I’d recommend pausing. You can just keep going, but I’m gunna suggest a few The Next Generation (TNG) episodes first before you move onto movies 7-10.

Q Who (Season 2, ep 16)

Best of Both Worlds part 1&2 (Season 3, ep 26, Season 4, ep 1)

Chain of Command part 1&2 (Season 6, ep 10-11)

The last one is similar to The City on The Edge of Forever. I think one more is best for understanding the characters moving forward, and this is a great ep for that, also it does my favorite Star Trek thing, which is discuss reverent political issues (use of torture in this case) while also getting you acquainted with the Cardassians, who will be around more in Deep Space Nine (DS9). But if you’re eager to get back to the movies, go ahead with the rest of the movies.

Movies 7-10 are all with the TNG cast, and then 11-13 are all the alternate Kelvin timeline (AOS).

Woo! At this point, you should feel much more aquatinted with this universe.

Now if you still want to watch more of the TV series, honestly, this may be controversial, but you can just watch whichever one strikes your fancy. The stories usually hold on their own, and one crew my be more interesting to you than another.

The Original Series and The Animated Series are the same crew, just one is animated.

From having watched the movies, you should have already met The Next Generation crew and should be able to tell if you want to see more of their adventures.

Deep Space Nine is not actually about a ship, but rather a base. This is the first time the captain was not a white man. Benjamin Cisco is played by Avery Brooks, a black man. Also, his first officer is a Bajoran (an alien) woman. This one also had the closest to the occasional LGBT+ rep with Jadzia Dax, an alien that is gender fluid and changes gender based on their host. It’s not perfect, but it’s at least not the regular cisgender heteronormative character we’re used to. Both Worf and O'Brein from TNG are in this series.

Voyager is about a ship that gets put 75 years away from Federation space and is about their adventures on their journey home. This features the first female captain, played by Kate Mulgrew from Orange is the New Black. It also has a Native American first officer, and a black Vulcan (not the first ever seen, but the first one as a main character), a half Klingon/human woman as the engineer, and later on in season 4, a former Borg assimilated woman. There’s even more than I’ve mentioned here actually, diversity wise. Other than Discovery, this is easily their most multicultural Bridge.

Enterprise is a prequel series that follows the crew of the Enterprise 100 years before Kirk took command. It’s, much less diverse to be honest. There’s a lot I like about it, and tbh I’m always a little Gay for T'Pol (Vulcan Sub-commander) but there’s a lot of white dudes, so if you’re looking for diversity, this…. may not be your jam.


Later, I’ll do a follow up post that has abridged recommendations for each series, because if I’m being totally honest, there’s really some episodes you can skip.

For now, this is my starting point for everyone.

ENJOY!

Please Watch Shin Sekai Yori

a plea by me, tumblr user findingschmomo

Shin Sekai Yori (Also known as From the New World) is a fantastic anime that little people know about and it deserves to be more popular. So hopefully by the end of this post I’ll have convinced a few of you to go check it out. 

First of all, whats this anime even about?

Shin Sekai Yori takes place 1000 years in the future, in a world where everyone can use telepathy. Their society is the product of this new ability. The story follows the lives of a group of children as they grow up and learn about the world they were born into and the dark secrets it holds. In fact, we follow their lives and progression from the age of 12 to their late twenties. 

The artwork is also fantastic. The animation is usually superb. 

The greatest part of Shin Sekai Yori though is the world that it has developed, and the puzzle that the children and viewer piece together at the same time as they discover the darkness within this new society. Plus, there is no wrong in Shin Sekai Yori in a traditional sense. No one is right. No one is wrong. It’s the kind of story that is conflicting for the viewer. It does not put you at easy. It does not offer easy answers but provides difficult questions. It’s the kind of show that spawns discussion on what humanity even means.  

Also of note: Canon Bisexuality. The characters in this show explore their sexuality, and it’s not looked down upon. It’s integral to the relationships they build with each other. But its portrayed as something normal and that is honestly refreshing.

I don’t really want to talk about all the things that I adore about this show because that would ruin it. The best thing is to go in blind and immerse yourself into the world this show creates. And to figure it out yourself.

One last thing though, unlike most shows, the ending to this anime is honestly the best part of the series. It sticks with you. It fucks you up in more ways than one. It leaves an impact. It makes everything worth it. When I finished it, I couldn’t think about anything else for weeks. Nor could I rid myself of the pain in my heart. 

To be completely honest, this is the kind of series to marathon. The pacing will keep you wanting more, to know more. And you should let it take you on this journey. 

Idk. This series is really good and you guys should watch it. I’m done my rant. 

If you’re interested you can find the whole series available to watch on crunchyroll here for free. It’s only 25 episodes and it’s completely worth your time. 

Thanks for reading this post. 

hanayou343  asked:

Hey, if you wouldn't mind, could you talk a little bit about what the stormlight archive is? I see you talking about it a lot and it seems really interesting and cool, but also very confusing. I can also turn to Google if you'd rather not, but you definitely seem to know a lot on the subject so I figured I'd ask. Have a fantastic new year!!!

Oh, I don’t actually talk about it that much; it’s just that I recently dashed through the newest book so I’m all hyped up.

Short answer: Stormlight Archive is a book series by Brandon Sanderson. High fantasy doorstoppers, planned to be 10 books and right now the 3rd just recently came out. They’re really good! Well-rounded characters, fantastic worldbuilding, intriguing mysteries and high stakes plot…every bird is called a chicken…

Long Answer: Once upon a time, a young man named Brandon Sanderson thought he wanted to write a long, epic fantasy series like the ones he loved, like Wheel of Time or the Belgeriad. Then he thought, maybe he should make it a little more accessible to lay readers, allow them multiple starting points rather than a huge long series you had to read start to finish in order to understand.

So he started building the Cosmere, a whole universe of different planets with different magic systems, connected by some basic underlying principles, very very long-back backstory, and this one sneaky asshole who appears at least once in every single book.

Then he thought up a little more background plot, and reasons people would travel between worlds, and totally played himself because now there’s this web of books set on different planets with different magic systems that are just connected enough to give clues as to how each other work, and the main characters from one standalone (thus far) book are playing not main but certainly significant roles in another series, and that one aforementioned sneaky asshole is getting more characterization, even though we’re not going to find out much about him until the promise very-very-prequel, which will explain some of that very-long-back backstory, and-

Ahem. Like I said, still a little hyped up.

The Cosmere, as it stands, consists of four main series:

  • Elantris (single book, maybe sequel someday)
  • Warbreaker (single book, maybe sequel someday)
  • Mistborn Trilogy (3 books); Mistborn Chronicles (¾ books written)
  • Stormlight Archive (3/10 books written)

The Mistborn books actually have 2 more trilogies planned, to what extent I do not know. The original trilogy is fairly high fantasy, the current Mistborn Chronicles is deliberately reminiscent of the American Old West and actually started as a short story that got WILDLY out of had, and the next two trilogies are supposed to be 1 urban fantasy and 1 full scifi, though still with magic, but also spaceships. Mistborn is supposed to be kind of the “spine” of the Cosmere, and I frankly assume that by the time we hit spaceships, there will be no point in distinguishing between individual series or planets. As mentioned, there is also a planned prequel to the whole damn universe, which should explain some things, and there are assorted short stories set on both the aforementioned worlds and a few others. One of them is in graphic novel form.

This is intimidating! I’m sorry about that. It doesn’t need to be. You really CAN start anywhere, and you DON’T need to get into the Cosmere as a whole. Individually, each series is still really good, and while it’s true that the Stormlight Archive is being more mixed up with other worlds than any previous series, it stands on its own very well. 

…okay, no, you actually do need to read Warbreaker first. But Warbreaker is a great book, as are Elantris or the first Mistborn book (Mistborn: The Last Empire.) I suggest you look up back-of-book plot summaries yourself, and pick whatever strikes your fancy. Whichever you pick, just know you are getting into:

  • well-rounded characters, grey morality but not in the Edgy way, just…that’s how the world is. He’s good at writing everyone thinking they’re in the right.
  • crazy-elaborate and thorough worldbuilding, and a plot that consists at least partially of figuring out how said worldbuilding works - the mechanics of the magic, and the history of the world (inevitably different from what they’d been taught)
  • gratuitous flying sequences like you’re at a 3D movie from 2010
  • Hoid

HAVE FUN!

Winter Anime Final Impressions

I was supposed to do this like two weeks ago but with Gundam ending so late and me getting swept up with many things, I didn’t have the time, but here’s a quick rundown of the best and worst of the Winter season. I’m gong from best to worst and also since I watched very few shows this season, I ‘m not gonna break them down in best/meh/worst

Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen

A masterpiece to the very end, as heartbreaking as it was full of joy and love. There was this weird insinuation at the end that didn’t sit well with me at all and I’m not sure why they felt the need to do it, but I can overlook it because the rest of the picture is so wonderful and special and heart-wrenching. When Konatsu asked Yakumo to make her his apprentice, I actually cried. What a beautiful show. Don’t let the obscure antique Japanese art keep you from experiencing one of the best anime of this decade.

Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto-hen

I was a bit worried about this one because lately, when an “old” show gets a sequel many years after it last aired, said sequel turns out underwhelming and poorly done. See D.Grayman HALLOW (which also adapted my favorite arc from that manga) and Berserk (production values aside, the decline of this is due to Miura’s gross storytelling, so I guess it was inevitable). But I was more than surprised and ecstatic to see this rendition of the Kyoto arc did justice on the source material, with excellent production values, a good pace and wonderful emotional and action scenes alike. AoEx is one of the finest examples of the battle shonen genre and that translated wonderfully to this new iteration of the anime. I can only hope we’ll see Izumo’s and Shura’s arc eventually too.

ACCA-13-ku Kansatsuka

I was a Little on the fence on this one at the start, but once they laid down all the cards and tied all the loose threads, it became absolutely amazing. I’m sorry I ever doubted you Natsume Ono, your ability to craft smart and fascinating adult stories shall never be questioned again. Definitely worth checking out if you want to try something different to your usual anime genres. Helps that the visuals are really interesting and that Mauve is such a bae. I still feel Jean was the weakest link with his absolute nonchalance, but even that somehow worked at the end. Definitely worth going through the somewhat slow initial episodes.

Yowamushi Pedal: New Generation

NGL i’m not a fan of Kaburagi, he’s so much like Naruko I don’t feel he adds anything to the team. But this is now officially the Teshima show and that compensates for the snooze that is Kaburagi because Teshima has become so fabulous and cool I’m just excited every week to see what he’ll do next. Also the First-year race was a true highlight and I’m very disappointed Sugimoto didn’t make the cut, they did a fantastic job in making him likable, so it was sad to see him lose. Hopefully he’ll get to assist Imaizumi when they’re 3rd years.

Little Witch Academia

This show’s a lot of fun, with really sweet animation and it also sports the Best Girl of the season, Sucy Manbavaaran, although I gotta say there were a bit too many fillerish episodes and it was frustrating to see them take so long to get the plot going. I’m not hating on the show, it is in fact extremely entertaining, but it’s a little lacking on the plot department. Hopefully we’ll get more of that on the second cour.

Classicaloid

I’ve never been happier of not quitting a show as I am about Classicaloid. By episode 3 I was on the verge of giving up because it wasn’t what I had expected, but I kept going and I ended falling so hard in love with this show I’m ecstatic it’s getting a second season. Once I embraced the absurdity, it became the best comedy of the season, and I honestly would watch Schubert’s fishy misadventures for 52 weeks a year. It’s an acquired taste for sure and not easy to recommend, but if you’re willing to let go of all reason, you’re sure to have a good time.

All Out!!

I have a lot of love for this show and its characters (and Sekizan’s ridiculous hair), but I’m afraid the pacing they chose basically doomed them because with the abysmal sales, it seems unlikely we’ll ever see a second season and therefore we’ll never get to see if Jinko does get to Hanazono. It’s a perfectly competent sports series, that does a really good job of developing its huge cast, definitely much better than the likes of Prince of Stride or DAYS, but its inconclusive ending is quite frustrating. I really do hope we get to see more of these boys, but Madhouse’s never been all that good with the whole getting-sequels-done so…

Kuzu no Honkai

In spite of its low ranking, this is actually a really good show and a unique take on teenage female sexuality that you wouldn’t normally see in this mostly sexist medium. Hanabi made for a truly interesting protagonist and I liked seeing her explore herself and her relationships. I was however quite disappointed by how little focus we actually had for Hanabi and Mugi’s relationship. I felt there was more telling than showing in that regard, especially in the latter half of the show. The ending was pretty good and mature in spite of everything, and as always, I’m just really fond of all the vaginal imagery in the ED animation. Could’ve done without Moca though.

Gundam: Tekketsu Orphans

At the end of the Fall season, I expressed my concern about pointless, meaningless deaths. Clearly the Gundam writers thought I wasn’t concerned enough because the amount of characters that died pointless deaths went on to, I think, the double digits. I wouldn’t have minded the carnage if there had been some sort of payoff to the sacrifices. For example, if Shino hadn’t stupidly and conveniently missed his one shot because the show couldn’t afford to kill Rustal yet. I always felt Orga, Mika and Akihiro had a ton of death flags looming over their heads, but I certainly didn’t expect all three of them to get to the chopping block. Orga’s death was particularly random and pointless, but then again, what they did with Orga in general was very confusing. That he agreed to McGillis’s sketchy propositions to become “king of Mars” never made a whole lot of sense to me and that’s the result we got. I’ll also never get over how creepy and weird the whole Atra giving Mika a baby thing was. In short, I have very mixed feelings about it.

I could write thousands of words for everything that was wrong with this series but I think it wouldn’t make justice to the absolute experience that is watching this amazing trainwreck. Go watch it to see a masterclass of how not to anime. Honestly I had such a good time hating this show, it was so horrible in every possible way. Good job GoHands, even animate, who sponsored this show, won’t give it any publicity.

Super Lovers

I’m not sure of how this production team managed to put out 20 episodes of nothing actually happen. Like you just have to give kudos to the writers for managing to simply not do anything over the course of 6~ hours of content. No drama, no decent comedy, no character development, not even relationship development in a BL romance. It’s kind of amazing how pointless the whole thing is. The dog’s still cute and the relationship is still creepy and gross and that’s about all there is to say about this.

Although most of the shows I watched turned out great, it did feel like a weaker season because there wasn’t that much that was interesting (my Wednesdays were literally empty). Or maybe everything looks lackluster in this post-Yuri on Ice world D: But there was Rakugo and rakugo is good and I’m glad we live in an age in which such a niche, quiet and adult artistic show could be made and tell a complete story.

Birthday present to a dear friend of mine on Twitter ♥ Wasn’t sure if I would upload this here on Tumblr as well, but on the other hand, there’s never enough puzzledorks playing video games. 

Atem’s playing Assassin’s Creed: Origins btw. I know next to nothing about that game-series, except that it’s a really good one and you can pet cats. 

(I should draw Atem in another shirt than that one, but daaaaaaaamn it’s my fav! It’s his fav! It’s everyone’s fav!)(okay that last one was a lie)(sorry)(but yes to more cool outfits for the pharaoh ♥)

** The Blood-Dimmed Tide 
Multi-Chapter
OK so OHMYGOD JUST GO READ THIS NOW. The writing is just amazing, its like reading art and the plot is sooo good and it really draws you in and just go read pls. Post-Avengers but realistic so the economy is down and everything is in ruins, Loki is a prisoner, Darcy somehow gets assigned to watch him. Mama Frigga is manipulative. Also, the butchering of Norse mythology but heh, Marvel does that anyway. Just so you know, this is VERY dark. Trigger warning for torture and sexual harassment/rape.

The Star-Filled Sky
Multi-Chapter (incomplete)
The sequel to TBDT. Personally, I feel that this fic is kinda slow and pales in comparison to the first one. The writing is still amazing but I find the plot too still. Also, I think this fic is even darker than the first if that is possible. Trigger warning for depression and cutting. 

Food = Caring = Food by fructosebat

** With Pie
PLEASE READ THIS ONE ITS REALLY REALLY GOOD. The plot is very simple, really, but its simplicity is astoundingly captivating and wonderful and there is so much cuteness and fluff. The fic goes from Loki being a little shit to Loki being Darcy’s best friend to eventually them being lovers. Also, pie fixes mental illness.

Burned Risotto and Failure Cookies
idk. I think that this fic would have been better if simply left at the end of With Pie. This fic is more domestic and focuses on Darcy and Loki’s relationship on Midgard. Also, Loki is still a little shit to Thor.

Darcy, Loki and the Yarn Store by Hermaline75
All human AU. Interesting plot, well written text. Loki has lots of issues and lots of sex. This series can be summed up in 4 words: Bisexual Loki likes sex.

In Which Nobody Is Normal Because Normal Is Boring by IffyJr1512

** The Subconscious Speaks Volumes by daxcat79
Ok so this fic is really good and well written. The plot is gets quite personal with our fav characters and contains lots of interesting twists. 1 word: inception.

Also the author of the series Turning and Turning, this author HAS SOME SERIOUSLY WICKED WRITING SKILLS. I can’t even with the intense descriptions that are so vivid and so poetic. Porn with plot, this fic is really amazing. Its very gentle and intimate.

That one time Darcy Lewis outsnarked the God of Mischief by Ambrosia
Amazing sarcasm and snark from both parties. Smut. Well written and a wonderful fic in general.

 Magic for Beginners by Vera (Vera_DragonMuse)
All human AU. This fic has a very captivating plot and comprehensible text. Loki is a magician and Darcy somehow becomes his assistant. Go read it, seriously.

** In the Service of Liars and Killers by MildredJosephine
YOU HAVE TO READ THIS FIC OK. Taking place during the Avengers, Loki basically mind-controls Darcy into minionhood and he slowly falls for her. The plot is so well thought out and amazing I love this fic so much.

* Three Days by mischiefgoddesscomplex
Go and read this now. Its very smutty, very sweet and very well written. The plot is not OHMYGOD CALL A MOVIE PRODUCER, in fact, its quite simple. Its the descriptive writing that really makes this fic stellar.

** Utter Darkness by ElegantMess 
This is no joke, after I read this, I felt like I had been reborn. THIS FIC CAN HAVE MY CHILDREN. A wonderful combination of angst, smut and hurt/comfort, this fic is superb. The plot is engrossing and riddled with plot twists and the writing is beautifully colourful. Warning for pervy Loki, torture and feels.

Daily Disasters by concavepatterns
Lots of snark, lots of sexual tension, lots of hilarious Darcy internal monologue. This fic is really good and features some hot sexytime.

 Watch Them As They Fall by mischiefgoddesscomplex
This fic features the cliché fake marriage trope pulled off with the skilful writing of aforementioned author.

** Shine Without Fear by Yavannie
Go read this now. Its really amazing and the plot pulls many Quicksilvers (you did not see that coming?) . This fic is told from several different points of view as our Avengers get separated. This is so well written and ridiculously original, I really love this fic so much.

** Not Without A Fight by concavepatterns
Is it possible to marry fanfiction? Cos that is what I want to do whenever I read this. Loki is a little shit, Darcy is a dedicated friend and Jane is well… dying. This takes place during TDW and is basically how I was praying the movie would go.

 Little Visits by concavepatterns
ok guys, really. see this person ^ here is repeated several times throughout this list because really, she’s a hella good writer. just read everything she write’s and you’re good. This fic is FRIGGIN BANANABALLS and I find really cute.

** A Morbid Taste For Ice by sitehound 
THIS IS ONE OF THE FICS THAT GOT ME SHIPPING TASERTRICKS!!! It is legit so amazing and the plot is so organised and Loki is a lil shit but he’s also kinda sad cos reasons I will not give away JUST READ IT! This fic is like a murder mystery crossed with fantasy featuring OTP meaning PERFECTION.

** Captivated by leftylain
Fun fact: did you know that if you use the filter on the side of the AO3 webpage and use kudos as the form of organisation, THIS FIC BECOMES THE FIRST BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST KUDOS-ED TASERTRICKS FIC ON AO3?! I think that speaks for itself. Go read this. Also, pre-Thor Prince Loki :)))

* Manic Taser Dream Girl by anniemar
Post TDW featuring agent Darcy and fluff and smut and crack and I cannot with this fic just read please.

The Devil Wears Armani by crazynoona
All human AU where Loki is Darcy’s hot sexy drool-worthy boss. There is a lot of hot smut in this. Very well written smut may I add. There are traces of plot.

Appeal to My Humanity by JessiokaFroka
It says its not complete but it is don’t worry.

Blame it on the Vodka by dhauren 
Extremely very amazingly well written. Has lots of feels and Loki snark. Great humor and a unique plot. Go read this please.

** The Flip Side by paynesgrey 
OK WOW so this fic has such an amazing plot that is totally one of a kind,  praise this author’s brain!!! Daddy Odin sucks, Loki is a mean shit even without a body and Darcy is the poor victim caught in the middle of it all. This is superbly written. Both Darcy and Loki’s internal monologues are spot on in character. MUST READ. Warning for torture and outrage of modesty(???) well if you possess someone’s body, it technically is an outrage of modesty and more i’m sure

Magnificent Incomplete Multi-Chapters:
note: I will not review/rate these because they’re not completed yet but yeah, join me in painful wait for updates

Ohmygod One-shots:

** A Little Wiggle And Bounce by leftylain
Smut
Loki is a manipulative little shit. Darcy strip teases.

* Don’t Mix Your Drinks by ThePenguinOfDeath
Smut.
2 words: drunk sex

let me bite, says the serpent by VesperRegina
Dirty talking Loki. heh.

The Talk by Joanacchi
Crack + Smut
This is more between Thor and Loki. This is absolutely hilarious honestly. Thor asks Loki how to pleasure Jane properly. Loki demonstrates with a Darcy clone.

Not Exactly the Worst Birthday Ever (by a longshot) by leftylain
Smut
Ok, so just know that this author is literally the goddess of smut writing.

Tight Spaces by concavepatterns
Smut
Loki and Darcy get stuck in an elevator together. Things escalate (and i’m not talking about the elevator, that thing aint movin)

** Dear Darcy by crazynoona 
Angst kinda, feels
This fic will break your feels guarantee it.

Worship by mischiefgoddesscomplex
Hot valentines day smut. Need I say more?

Darkness by of_raven_wings
Hurt/Comfort, Angst
THE WORDS ARE TOO BEAUTILFUL I CAN’T. Loki saves Darcy
Warning: Rape

Sex On The Beach by MistressofLoki
Smut thrown in with some crack for good measure.
Loki misunderstands Darcy. (not that either is complaining well maybe thor is)

** Inn Mistaka by LadyCharliEM
THIS IS NOT ACTUALLY A SHORT ONE-SHOT ITS A REALLY GOOD LONG STORY THAT IS SIMPLY AMAZING AND YOU HAVE TO READ IT. THIS IS UNDER ONE-SHOTS BECAUSE THE AUTHOR POSTED THE ENTIRE FIC IN ONE CHAPTER THUS IT QUALIFIES AS A ONE-SHOT.

** 23 Skidoo by SilverRumRunner
THIS IS AMAZING I LOVE THIS GO READ!
THIS LITERALLY COULD HAVE BEEN A DELETED SCENE FROM THOR TDW. (meaning, my brain has accepted this as headcanon)

Under Ether by Lunik
Wonderful, hilarious crack.
So Darcy is babysitting a Loki doped on drugs. That’s it. That’s the plot. (and I love it)

Libations of Defeat by paynesgrey
Smut.
So… impromptu outdoor sex.

To: Frosty by vindiya
Fluff galore.
An absotootly adorable fic that is a must read during Christmas time.

Run Softly, For I Speak Not Loud or Long by Allecto & blackbird
ok so someone actually recommended this to me and it is really amazing. Its a full blown story too and is very sweet. There is a sort of reference to the comics/mythology in the sense that Loki gets his mouth sown shut. Smut, hurt/comfort, fluff.

Definitely Not Human by LokiOfSassgaard
Crackish Smut.
Very, very awkward sex. Loki makes a fool of himself as Jotun sex has some… unexpected happenings.

Echo by ohmyloki 
Ends on a very sweet note. This features in-the-process-of-trying-to-be-redeemed!Loki.

Of Pranks and Switching Bodies by MyNameIsDarcyLewis 
Crack. So much crack.
Basically our Hiddlestoner joke about Tom’s seemingly never ending legs and Tasertricks pull a Freaky Friday. Also, Loki is a sappy romantic.

** And Then Shawarma by SilverRumRunner 
Fluff + Crack.
This fic is a very much realistic way Tasertricks could possibly meet. Marvel should literally do a one-shot after this one-shot no joke. (AHEM AHEM HINT HINT MARVEL PLEASE) Immediate post-Avengers, the team eats Shawarma and Darcy babysits the megalomaniacal Norse god.

* Down the Rabbit Hole by psychollama
Smut
Darcy gets mind controlled by Loki and the Tesseract apparently ships Tasertricks. Very hot.

Blueberry by amidtheflowers 
Smut
On a hot day, Jotun sex is a very good idea.

Thou Makest a Cunning Linguist by Tawryn 
Crackish smut
I can totally imagine Darcy doing this during sexytimes. Every time I read this, I have to continually pause and walk the second hand embarrassment off. I cringe for Darcy every time

**  I Find the Silence Bearable With You by spikewriter 
This is amazing, beautiful, if slightly angsty, fluff. Its so well written and just wow. This fic explores each character’s own depths to their own extent. Wonderful Thor and Loki relationship dynamics and mouth foaming tasertricks budding friendship. 

~to be continued as new works arise~

anonymous asked:

Hi!! So I love your writing! Masterpiece was honestly such a beautiful series and Purple is really good and just all your scenarios are amazing! I was just wondering if you could recommend some bts fanfics to read? Thank you :)

So yes, I have a few fanfics that I would love to recommend but ask other people too because I haven’t been able to read that many on my time here, and I would love to read more.

Note: None of the pieces of writing I recommend will be smut because I don’t read smut but I know some of the writers do write smut so if you like reading that then check do out those as well :)

Also, make sure you check out every writer’s masterlists and all their works because they’re all amazing writers, I’m just recommending a few in particular which are my personal favourites 

And I have a fic rec tag to which I reblog some of my favourite fanfic so definitely check that out too!

They are in no particular order, I just love them all, okay?

I am so thankful I found this author because I don’t really see much of platonic BTS scenarios and she writes platonic BTS!!! And I just started reading LaFT and let me tell you DAMN it’s amazing.

@exoticarmy127

If you’re have a BTS tumblr and you don’t know Kaye, then what are you doing with your life? And if you haven’t read the story about the adventures of Prof V, what are you doing with your life? This is personally one of my favourite stories on tumblr/wattpad, so if you haven’t read it, get to it! And if you already have read it, why not read it again? XD

@mochirapgod

This is super cute, if you like super cute then read this super cute fic

Love you guys!!

Has anyone been reading the Batman ‘66 Meets Wonder Woman ‘77 comic series? It is really, really good. Still campy, but there are some dark themes popping up in the background. Ra’s al Ghul is main villain right now and it’s great.

The most recent issues have moved forward to 1977 and check out some of the awesome artwork.

Dick has graduated from Robin into Nightwing (I love his outfit):

I also like the older Bruce Wayne:

And Catwoman has joined the forces of good:

Well worth a read.
