a story worth reading

Then suddenly, you met someone who told you the same story. Who told you about the same path you’ve walked through. And this time, you truly listened. You looked at them in the eyes while all the memories started coming back from the past. Suddenly you were like listening to an old song. You were like seeing an old scene you thought you have already forgotten. You were like in the darkness again. A darkness that was surrounded by voices you thought will never exist again. You were like watching an old movie. The one you don’t want to witness anymore. You’re hearing the same story from a different person. This time, the tears and sobs were not coming from you. It’s from someone you haven’t known when the same story happened to you. It was the same, yes, but still different. Because this time, you already understand. This time, you knew why it has to happen that way. This time, you were different. Because you already learned the lessons behind that story. And it’s time for you to try telling that someone how you overcome passing along that obstacle you thought you can never get through.

Art from the book A Monster Calls written by Patrick Ness and illustrated by Jim Kay.

It’s a children’s book about a boy (Conor) who starts having nightmares about a monster every night since his mother started her cancer treatment. One night when he wakes up, there is an actual monster right outside his window. The monster is a yew tree in the cemetery behind Conor’s house during day-time but the monster we see at night. I wont go into more detail about the story because it’s really worth reading. You might want to have some tissues and ice-cream ready though.

It was inspired by Siobhan Dowd, who passed away due to cancer and could not write this book herself

Before the very special moment comes, you expect the sun to rise in the morning. So it will light the whole day. You expect it to celebrate with you while you turn your head up high and smile at the sky. Before you went to surprise your friend on his own house, you expect him to be there knowing he would not go anywhere else. Before you call your best friend to tell her stories in the middle of the night, you expect her to answer your call and tell you that she has her ears open to everything you’re going to say. When you fall on your knees while you are surrounded by a lot of busy people, you expect someone to lend you a hand and lift you up on your feet. When you fall in love with someone who matters to you the most, you expect to be with them forever knowing that you will never fall out of love with them. Never. Yet when your dreams shattered to the ground, when your heart gets broken, you become disappointed and blame yourself for expecting too much. Your walls break down and you let them be replaced with negativities. Suddenly you lie awake at 3am thinking what you have done wrong. Thinking if there’s still a way for you to step your feet and walk on. It rains. Stars are falling. People are leaving. One by one. Not all at once. As if they let you see them disappear like leaves on Autumn. But you and your hope is still there, sleeping and waiting for your call. You knew that expectations are different from love and hope. And you still have the latter. Your heart is still beating. This world is still revolving around the sun. The stars are still going to shine. Billions of people are still alive. And you’re still there, breathing, existing. Hope, my dear, but never expect. Because in the end, with love, it still remains. And someday you will understand that these things are some of the best things you’ll ever have in your life. That even if you refuse to feel them in a while, these are some things you’ve been possessing from the very start.

Reylo Fic Recs Part 2

Works in Progress 

Hex by @pissbabysithlord For a moment he assumed she was someone’s familiar, but there were few witches in the area. Kylo sincerely doubted any of them would be so cruel as to have their companion fend for themselves in the streets, especially when considering how small she was. Still, there was something undeniably clever about her. He sighed; either way, it was of no consequence to him. Magical AU

Thwarted by @perrydowning It has been nine months since Starkiller and Kylo Ren has become something more. The light still pulls at him from time to time but after the price he has paid, he has been relentless in his pursuit of the dark. And then when Snoke had dared stand in his way, tried to take Rey from him … new power had been born that day. Black and deep. The endless abyss that is Kylo Ren in love.

Reformation by @corariley​ For the past six months, Rey has been living the life she only thought possible in her dreams. Finally having a family to call her very own, she believes that nothing can ruin her perfect world. Little does Rey know that a woman from Ben’s past is back with one goal in mind; to turn her dream life into a living nightmare. Set six months after CassonadeModern AU

Sovereign Loyalties by @clockwork-cameo While visiting Jakku for business purposes, Emperor Kylo Ren spots a scavenger who is unknowingly strong with the Force. Enticed by her beauty and her power, Emperor Ren decides he must have her and will do anything he can to get her. When Rey is taken to the Empire of the infamous Kylo Ren to be his pseudo concubine, she finds herself attracted to him despite her best efforts. Determined to go back to Jakku despite her attraction to him, Kylo offers her a deal she cannot refuse and Rey agrees to stay with him in exchange for his help in finding her family.

Spotlight by on_my_toes 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. Modern AU

The Girl on the Stairs by PoorQueequeg The year is 1913 and it is Winter in Moscow, the snows are frequent and the ice never melts. Kylo Ren is a respectable gentleman, except of course, when he isn’t. Historical AU 

anonymous asked:

Hey I don't mean to bother, but I was wondering if you had a list or so of your fav Bellarke fics(AU)? I love all your fics (Bellarke and Stydia) <3 Thanks!

AU?! Oh, man. I assume you mean non-canonverse AU. And I’m not much of an AU reader, but here are a couple of my all-time favs.

Take Me to Church by @hawthornewhisperer | M | priest-in-training!Bellamy is definitely not supposed to develop feelings for the girl he goes running with in the mornings. And they probably shouldn’t have sex either. He knows this, and yet. (link to all 6 chapters in the link) 

I Choose You by winterwaters | M | 17k | Clarke’s a society girl who doesn’t want to get married, despite her mother’s wishes, but then a farmer shows up, with a deal that intrigues her. (I’m an arranged marriage AU hoe and this one is so sweet. I’ve read it like a bedtime story many times.)

Worth the Trouble and Worth the Pain by @ponyregrets | T | 6k | Princess Clarke has one year to get married. Her personal guardsman is not pleased about the situation, but there’s not a lot he can do.

like ships in the night (passing me by) by viansian | T | 11k | He met her seven different times. Once when she was a child, twice on her deathbed and four times in between. (Alternatively, The Fic Where He’s Immortal and She’s Not)

I Make My Own Luck by somethingofatrainwreck | M | 23k | Poker Night was simple enough. Show up at Clarke’s every Thursday night. BYOB (no cans, always bottles), turn your phones off, don’t get in the middle when Mom and Dad start to bicker, never mention Mt. Weather, and for the love of God don’t bring any randos…It was simple. It really was. The thing about rules though? People can’t help but break them.aka five times someone ruined Poker Night and the one time all bets were off.

i’ve seen love go by my door (it’s never been this close before) by safeandsound13 | M | 5k | Every story begins somewhere, usually with a shared look from across the room and the exchange of names. Theirs starts with an abduction and a set of handcuffs. Or, the less fancy version of it: Clarke and Bellamy plan Murphy’s death while being cuffed to a bathroom sink. (this is kinda a crack fic, kinda just really funny, and i love the author so lemme throw it in there)

Keep Your Enemies Closer by PaintedGhostOrchid | NR | 51k |  Bellamy and Clarke are co-workers and bitter rivals who live to compete with one another and can barely be civil- at least, until their respective partners start having an affair and Clarke and Bellamy have no choice but to team up to win back their cheating lovers. (I have a massive boner for this one, don’t even ask why because idk.)

To anyone who hasn’t read Skip beat: please read Skip Beat.

  • It’s about a girl who gets into the showbiz industry to exact revenge upon a bastard who used her and played with her heart.
  • It’s a wonderful story about a girl learning how to love herself before anything else. 
  • The female protagonist is so very talented and so very strong.
  • On her journey to self discovery she makes new friends and enemies. 
  • Almost all the women in the series are hardcore feminists who value their work and career over their love-life.
  • All the characters have amazing depth to them, and the emotions are very realistic.
  • The female protagonist is a hardcore badass that could possibly kill a man and still look cute doing it.
  • So is the male protagonist. 
  • Hilarious and inspiring side characters.
  • Seriously the complexity of the characters is mind-blowing.
  • It has unique humour which will keep you laughing the whole night.
  • It also has angsty scenes that will make you cry. 
  • It has good slow romance which is completely torturous. 
  • Has fluff so sweet it’ll rot your teeth.
  • The plot is unique and quite frankly a masterpiece.  
  • Basically Skip Beat! has all the elements of an excellent story.
  • Nakamura-sensei (the mangaka) literally planned out everything from the first chapter to the last, so there’s a lot of foreshadowing, which is really cool, and so the story is very grounded. 
  • It also has an anime for those who prefer watching over reading.

Literally the only downside to this manga is the unattractive art style in the beginning, which later on gets better and trust me, the story is so worth it. So please read Skip Beat.

Yuri!!! on Ice fanfiction recommendations

Okay, I just hit 500 followers and I thought it was a good occasion to share some of my favourite YoI fanfics! I hope you find some you like!

Viktor x Yuuri

Beside the Dancing Sea by lily_winterwood and MapleTreeway
Rating: Explicit, finished (13/13 chapters), words: 186584
This has to be my favourite fanfiction of all times. It is just everything you want a fanfiction to be and more: fluffy, sexy, emotional, funny, and creative.The story takes place in a fictional town in Scotland, Viktor is an author seeking for inspiration and Yuuri is a selkie. The setting is amazing, the characters are all beautifully portrayed, the writing is amazing, it is even multimedia, adding a nice touch to everything and it is overall just amazing and wholesome and an experience. Once you start reading, you don’t want to stop.

starstruck by shizuoh:
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences, finished (18/18 chapters), words: 58955
An AU in which Viktor is a famous actor and single father of a young little boy named Yuri.Yuuri, who is a simple barrista, somehow ends up as the babysitter. A beautiful slow burn fanfiction with a lot of feels and dorks who are pining and and the sweetest little boy Yuri. One of the first fics I read after getting into the fandom and still one of my absolute favourites.

Rise Above the Tides by Kashoku:
Rating: Explicit, finished (11/11 chapters), words: 34869

This fanfiction, my guys… It’s very angsty, dark (in the truest sense of the word) and sad. But it’s amazing and it won’t leave you alone after you start reading, you just want to know how it goes on and you really want to hug the heck out of poor boy Yuuri. The story revolves around Yuuri who becomes blind after an accident and how he has to deal with his new disability… which isn’t good.
It’s gonna be okay, though.

It Doesn’t Have to be a Lie by Recesskup:
Not Rated, unfinished (20/? chapters), words: 54986
This fanfiction is set in a College AU and is about Dance major Yuuri who has a raging crush on Photography major Viktor and accidently tells his parents that Viktor is his new boyfriend and will come with him to Japan. To his surprise Viktor is willing to visit Yuuri’s family and pretend they’re in a relationship. Overall just really fluffy and cute, mostly two dorks who are pining over each other with a little bit of angst as well.

Tu meum Animum by bratinella:
Rating: General, unfinished (13/? chapters), words: 47879
My favourite Hogwarts AU out there. Unfortunately I don’t know if the story will be continued, but it’s either way worth to read it. It’s about a certain Russian Slytherin boy who is pining over a certain Japanese Gryffindor boy and how they become friends and very slowly even more than that. But there is also the Triwizard Tournament which is making things a little bit more dificult, for Viktor at least.

What happens in Vegas Stays In Vegas by Gayson:
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences, finished (4/4 chapters), words: 21525
The most hilarious bachelor party. In Vegas. Honestly, I laughed so hard while reading this fanfiction. All of our boys are really drunk and do some really stupid things, but they have the time of their lives. Also Viktuuri wedding, what more do you want?

Otabek x Yurio

More Than He Bargained For by Follow Your Dreams:
Rating: Explicit, unfinished (15/20 chapters), words: 60838
My guys. I’m hooked since I started to read this fanfiction and I always wait anxiously for the next update, because it is that good. Because Yuri has done something wrong his parents sent him to the Altins in hope that their son Otabek maybe is a good influence on him. Lots of feels, lots of fluff, lots of moments in which you just want to hug them and tell them they will be okay. There is some angst going on, but at the same time it just. So. Sweet. My heart.

Wolves of the Wilderness by NinjaMatty:
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences, unfinished (33/? chapters), words: 127277
This story is set in a dystopian future in which Otabek is a citizen who knows he has to die, because he is seen as useless for the society due to his unability to have children. Someday his doctor Viktor Nikiforov appears at his doorstep and leaves him with a blond, wounded boy…. This story leaves you on edge the whole time you read it. It is something so entirely different from everything I’ve read so far and you could easily think this was a real novel. Beside the amazing plot with a lot of unexpected twists and turns, it’s also the most bitter-sweet slow burn ever.

Hashtags by abrandnewheart:
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences, one shot, words: 7192
This fanficition devasted me. This is the saddest shit you’ll ever read, probably. No, really, it is amazing and I loved it, but it’s just very sad. So if you’re in the mood for a little heart break and a few tears, than go ahead and read this. For a little twist is this not an AU, but canon compliant if I remember correctly and is based on Otabeks unrequited love towards his best friend.

Not your usual love story by arcsinx:
Rating: Explicit, unfinished (18/? chapters), words: 62034
Not gonna lie, this fic is very smutty and full of sexual tension. But I really like the idea of Model!Yuri and DJ!Beka and how it’s portrayed. I really love their dynamics here and also Gentleman!Otabek. I have a great weakness for Otabek being a gentleman, to be honest (and so does Yuri).

Six Kinds of Love by Frilly_Axolotl:
Rating: Explicit, unfinished (13/? chapters), words: 50920
I put it to the Otayuri fraction of this list, because Viktuuri already has so many fics, haha. This fanfiction is really dark and if you are interested, please read the tags beforehand. There might be some triggering things… The story is set in a world in which slaves are legal and the Yuris have been slaves of two terrible men until they are rescued by Viktor Nikiforov. The story is very interesting. It shows the process of the Yuris to adjust to the new situation, which isn’t abusive anymore and their new masters Viktor and Otabek, who both insist that they aren’t really their masters. Needless to say, it’s very angsty and not very fluffy or romantic.

sea town by dolcette:
Rating: Mature, one shot, words: 1682
This is a short and sweet fanfiction about our boys going on vacation, but way better put into words. This one is more about the feeling and the atmosphere of the story than the actual plot itself. The writing is beautiful and poetic.

anonymous asked:

Can you give us some book recommendations?

Okay book recs. Oh my god I have so many. I have a question after this that say’s POC book recs, so I’m going to keep this post to book recs that arent poc to keep these separated just for the sake of the anon’s that asked. 

Red Rising by Pierce Brown (Trilogy with a new book - a ‘spin off series’ coming out next year) - I will fucking promote this book series until I die. This is hands down, one of the best books I have EVER read. Honestly, for me it sort of beats out Harry Potter (Which if you know me, I’m obsessed with. I mean, I had a Harry Potter Sweet 16. [I’m from Long Island. Everyone there has a Sweet 16]) Not only is Red Rising extremely diverse and beautifully written,  but the storyline is incredible and the characters literally jump off the page. I dont think I’ve ever read a more human character than Darrow. Honestly PICK UP THIS BOOK. IT NEEDS MORE FUCKING ATTENTION. 

^^^^bolded it so people know that this is the best book ever and needs the read. 

Abarat by Clive Barker (Four books so far) - Now, this may not be everyones cup of tea. Maybe because I’m a painter, I appreciate him more. But his books are wonderfully illustrated with his paintings that follow along with the beautiful storyline. I recommend this book to the fucking stars. Its a fantastic story with amazing paintings. (Clive Barker, for those who don’t know, also created Hellraiser [Pin Head] and Midnight Meat Train along with a plethora of other stories. It’s worth the read.)

Song of Achilles (novel) - I mean, If you want to fucking CRY  then this is the book for you. It’s so fucking depressing but so FUCKING GOOD. I mean, if you know the story of Achilles, then you know why its depressing. But that doesnt take away from the beautiful story between Achilles and Patroclus. Definitely recommend this book. 

Along with that last book, a book that I feel goes hand in hand with it:

Captive Prince by C. S. Pacat (trilogy) - Now. A lot of people have a problem with this trilogy. I personally, as a (mixed, black) poc, have no problem with this book. It’s about two kingdoms, one of poc, Greek-like, and the other of boujee af french-like, white kingdom. In short, the Prince from the Greece inspired Kingdom is framed and shipped away to the french kingdom as a slave. Now, he becomes a slave (as a dark skinned man) to a white prince. There are a lot of things that happen like he gets whipped and other horrible shit. People have a problem with the book because of the dynamic between the two. They find it racist and insensitive. Here’s a great post as to why people don’t like the post, and the second comment is why I read it. I honestly find it to be a beautiful story that develops amazingly over time. I definitely recommend it. 

Kids of Appetite by David Arnold (novel) - I’ve just recently read this book and I absolutely fucking loved it. It’s an extremely diverse, beautiful story. Personally, I found the story sad, funny, heart warming, and inclusive. They brush upon the difficulties that black men specifically, have with the judicial system, by having an African man whom is loving and kind, constantly blamed for crimes that he did not commit. Again, it’s a really lovely book and this stuck with me for a very long time. I really recommend it. 

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (novel) - If you don’t want to fucking SOB then don’t read it. If you want a beautiful story, I recommend this book to the stars. Honestly, I went into the book not knowing shit about it, just that people loved it. Then I realized that it was about fucking cancer and I was about to throw my god damned book because I don’t fend well with sad things. THEN I found out that it’s also now a movie with Liam Neeson. Ugh. I havent seen the movie yet, but damn was this book magical and heart breaking and wow… Read it. I personally fucking loved it. 

Fangirl  by Rainbow Rowell (novel) - I mean, I feel like this book actually summed up my early college experience lol! I was writing fanfiction, roleplaying, cooping myself up in my room - the only difference was, I didnt have a quirky, beautiful, sweet man to hold me as I read outloud to him (if you read the book, then you know what I’m talking about). Honestly, this was a fucking amazing book and I loved it so much. it was feel good and extremely nostalgic for people of my generation (’94-’96 specifically) really well. If you loved Harry Potter, grew up with it, went to the midnight book releases and movie screenings, submerged yourself in the fanfiction, then you will love this book. I thought it was fantastic. 

which leads me to this rec. 

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (novel) - Ugh. So in fangirl, there’s a fanfiction that the main character is writing. I know that this book is not the fanfiction, but it is named the same thing - so thats a nice connection. Again, if you love Harry Potter, if you love shipping Drarry (i dont because I find it problematic. But I feel if you like Drarry) then youd love this. I mean honestly, if you just like a cute story, with ridiculous spells, and adorable love, then read it. If you love Harry Potter ESPECIALLY READ THIS BOOK. 

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (Trilogy) - Okay. Honestly, I havent seen many people promote this book series, but it is amazing and arguably, one of the most beautifully written trilogies that I have ever read (besides Red Rising. Ahem. Read it). It’s a wonderful story that comes together beautifully and is such a different book from your usual YA. 

The Archived by Victoria Schwab (Series of two) - So, if Victoria Schwab sounds familiar, that’s because she also goes under V.E. Schwab okay. Listen. I know that everyone loves A Darker Shade of Magic. I havent finished that book yet and I bet it’s amazing. However, we cannot forget the other amazing books she has written. The Archived is such a lovely, creative story that deserves more credit. Honestly, I’ve never read a book like it before and it stuck with me for an extremely long time. Apparently there is a third book coming out that I have actually been waiting for forever. I’m not going to say much about it, but these books are wonderful and deserve the read. 

Speaking of V.E. Schwab

Vicious by V.E. Schwab - This book deserves more recognition. Not only is the cover absolutely AMAZING, but the story is fuckign awesome. If you like Brandon Sanderson books, if you like superheros or Marvel and DC, read this fucking book. It’s fantastically written and needs to be read more. Get on it people. 

I mean, these are just some books. I purposely stayed away from some YA  series because I feel like a lot of people know about them. But I mean, some YA series that are well known that I like are:

Obviously Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas

The Darkest Minds  by Alexandra Bracken

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy (ONLY THE FIRST FUCKING BOOK. THE REST OF THE SERIES IS SHIT AND IF YOU WANT TO JUST READ THE FIRST BOOK THATS COOL. COME TO ME AND I’LL TELL YOU THE REST BECAUSE THAT SHIT WAS RIDICULOUS. IT HAD SO MUCH POTENTIAL, IF ONLY RICK YANCY DIDN’T SHIT THE BED. ALSO THE MOVIE WAS SHIT)


So anyway.. i think this is all I’ve got right now haha. I’ll put my favourite books written by poc in the anon above this!  

10

Chapter 9: Visitors; but way more dramatic XD

Please tell me that Green actually sees through her pain, and it hurts to see her smile because he knows, but despite all that she’s still selfless, putting others before herself; showing concern to those around her, even when they don’t

The words “It’s just been so long since I’ve actually been treated like a person.” echoes in his head; how long has it been since she was last shown respect? He had to, he just had to. 


6S1M belongs to @/raccoonsinqueen / @raccoonsinqueen-taxes , check out their fic here~ X3

So, Tumblr thought it would be cool to eat my birthday post to my lovely friend and dark counterpart @optomisticgirl….which is actually super NOT cool. Anyway, I’m posting this a little late, but here it is! Happy day of birth, my Aries partner-in-crime! You are a lady, a scholar, and a wonderful human being.

A little classic literature and verbose Killian smut :) M-rated for certain.


“Well, that’s a long face if I’ve ever seen one,” Granny announced, leaning over the counter to snatch the empty hot chocolate mug. “What’s got you down, Sheriff?”

Lifting her frustrated eyes from the leatherbound book she’d borrowed from the library at Belle’s insistence, Emma attempted a casual smile before addressing the inquiry of the woman who owned the place. It was a rather half assed try, but what was the point in pretending all was well when it certainly was not? They’d been chasing their tails for days over how to put a stop to the Evil Queen’s most recent reign of terror, galavanting through a handful of untold stories until they landed on an author who was dreadfully familiar and the answer to all their problems - according to an odd inkling Henry had while thumbing through a newly discovered version of the storybook. If she’d known sending him with Killian to the author’s abandoned mansion in search of an alternate text would amount to her reading not one but four Shakespeare books - well, she definitely would have thought twice about needing more information.

The whole idea was starting to feel like ‘much ado about nothing’ - pun very much intended.

Feedback Challenge!

There’s a wonderful post circulating reminding everyone that fanfiction writers spend hours and hours, days, weeks, months, years, working on stories that they provide to you all for free. Often, I feel like the quality of these stories rival (and surpass, even) that of published novels, so it’s really incredible to me that as a reader, I am able to read what essentially amounts to hundreds–thousands–of books at no cost.

Now, no one is obligated to comment on a story or message the writer to tell them how much they appreciate what they contribute to the fandom. But if you sit and read an hour’s worth of a story, please understand that it took way more than an hour of the writer’s time to create. If you liked what you read, sparing sixty seconds to write a comment is not too much to ask for, is it? It may be free media, but I like to think of it more like “pay what you can” in the form of feedback.

So, I’d like to challenge you all.

I challenge you to comment on every fanfiction you read for the next two weeks after you read this post. You can put your comment in the tags, or on a reblog post, or in the replies, or through an ask. You can put your comment on FF.net or AO3. You can even message the writer directly to tell them what you thought! But please leave some feedback on every story, even if it’s just as simple as, “Love this story! Thanks for writing!”

Reblog if you’re up to the challenge! I hope after a couple of weeks, you’ll see that it isn’t a chore or a responsibility. It’s a true pleasure. It feels good to tell others how you appreciate them and their fic. And maybe from then on, you’ll be open to doing this every time! :)

Here are more things you can do to help writers!

anonymous asked:

Hi! I was wondering, do you know any good Yuuri/Yuri fanfiction?

Do I? *rubs hands together deviously* Why, yes, my dear. Prepare to be amazed.

Yuriyuu Fanfic Recommendations:

1. Permanent Ink by @mak-ka-chin
~50k words | Soulmate AU, Angst, Slow Burn | E Rating
This is definitely one of the longest Yuriyuu fics out there. Viktuuri is also present in the fic as Yuuri has two soulmates, but it has really great Yuriyuu development, and I love how the author weaves it all into the plot of the anime.

2. Coup de Foudre by @mak-ka-chin
~4k words | Fluff, Canon Divergent | T Rating
Same author as Permanent Ink. Yuuri never meets Viktor at the banquet, so years later, he sees Yurio perform and becomes inspired to choreograph his new program. It’s very cute, great writing style, and Viktor plays a surprisingly entertaining role.

3. Wildflowers by @axon-a
~70k words | Slow Burn, Mutual Pining, Altered Ages | T Rating
What Yuriyuu fic list is complete without Wildflowers? This fic is even longer than Permanent Ink and really does well on showing their feelings develop over time. There is some Phichuuri and Otayuri along the way, but we do get to Yuriyuu by the end. A good solid read. 

4. Be Patient. It Takes Time by Denymore
~15k words | Fluff, Angst, Viktuuri Breakup | G Rating
This is a very cute fic that follows Yuri and Yuuri after Viktuuri breaks up. (Just a warning: The writer is not a native English speaker, so there are a lot of grammar mistakes, but I think it’s definitely worth reading) It’s a really beautiful, heartwarming story and portrays the Yuriyuu relationship very well.

5. I’m Jealous of the Way You’re Happy Without Me by @ochoth
~3k words | Angst, Character Death, Mourning, Unrequited Love | M Rating
This fic is not for the faint of heart. I cry like a baby every time I read it. Not only is it sad and heartfelt, but it also shows a lot of deep characterization of Yuri and Yuuri. The story felt incredibly realistic, which made it all the more painful. It hurts you in a good way.

6. Yuri Plisetsky, Foulmouthed Guardian Angel by istillfearkanna 
~8k words (ongoing) | Angst, Fluff, Potential Viktuuri, Hurt/Comfort | T Rating
This fic isn’t finished yet, but it has a very promising start. The writing style is nice and there’s a good mix of angst and fluff. It definitely leaves you on the edge of your seat. I really like how we see Yuri’s vulnerable side in this fic.

7. His L Words by quixotic_writes
~5k | Hurt/Comfort, Polyamory, Side of Platonic Otayuri | M Rating
This one is actually Viktuurio, meaning Viktor x Yuri x Yuuri. I don’t read a lot of these, but this one is very special to me. Yuri has a great friendship with Otabek, and he pines after both Yuuri and Viktor, though it takes him a while to discover what his feelings mean. Even if you’ve never read Viktuurio, I recommend giving this one a try. It captured my heart from the very first moment.

So there you go! Seven great fics to get you started. If you’ve got any recommendations for me, feel free to drop them in my ask box. Happy reading~

@artblart here you go!

Sorry this has taken a while by my tumblr is playing up grrrrrrrrrr!

So I saw that you’ve already reblogged the fic post by @ashtosilver (read that stuff it’s sooo gooood) but here are a few others:

Firstly there’s @dracze ! and her AO3 is choc-a-block full of amazing Batjokes stories! Half Way Across is pretty much THE batjokes fic to read!

Noxious Kinda Love is another that’s just great! It’s nolanverse and I dunno if that’s your thing or not, but I love it!

This series by orphan_account is also very good! I have many of these in my AO3 bookmarks list!

@toluenesisterhas some SUPERB batjokes stories that are an absolute MUST! Dissolve and absolve is pretty dark, though so be warned.

@mitzvahmelting has some excellent batjokes stories as well. I particularly recommend the ones part of the Matchjokes series!

messageredacted is another excellent author! So much good batjokes!

@saremina ’s story Somewhere Between Love and Abuse is another delight! Very fun and definitely worth a read!

And on the Wall, Tekel is a small story that, heh, feeds a particular favourite trope of mine: Batjokes, in the RAIN!

Desperation by MischiefMakerMaiden is one that is a little sad but sooooo worth the pain! I love it.

cyranothe2nd is another batjokes author worth checking out! Lots of stories to read there :D

Be sure to check out @altered-eagle on AO3. Dooooooo itttttttt!

And Two Step by @robatics is another one that needs to be read!

Ok, that’s just a few to start with, and that’s just on AO3! There are so many under the Joker(DCU/Bruce Wayne tag on that site. Browse, read enjoy and, once again, welcome to the club friend! :D

Fic Recs for Naruto

NOTE: Most of these pics are Sakura-centric, multi-saku shippy, or dark. I’ll make sure to include TWs that I can remember for as many as possible. We’ll start with authors first. I’ll also include tumblrs that I know for them. They’re all great. 

And these are just my favorites! There’s bound to be so many more out there! So keep an eye out, and feel free to add your own favorites. 

I need a cut desperately at this point.

KYAAAA. Why are they both so cute? Sigh. My babiiiiiess!!
I feel so moved though, because Masa actually discussed something he won’t with Koju, to Kota. Well maybe it’s because it’s about dance but still!! Gyaaaaah. There'a actually a scene from the 4-koma, about Masa trying to chat Kota while he’s gaming kkkk. And another when Koju knows about smartphone LOL I should do the TL for that soon. Sigh.
I’m so satisfied. My 500 diamonds worth this cute story. I haven’t read Kota’s but I think it’ll be cute too uuuuugh look at both of them smiliiiiiing 😍😍

A Thought on Reviews

As fanfic writers we don’t get paid and we write because we love it.  Reviews and comments are a sort of “payment”, if you will, and as writers we love getting feedback, especially positive and glowing praise.  The other day I received this review on the Drarry fic I am working on, What the Room Required, and it has me scratching my head a bit.  

“Supremely well-written. I generally avoid all Harry Potter fics because they tend to strike me as being written by, well, let’s say *inexperienced* authors. The characterization was on point and the build-up of sexual tension was fantastic. Bravo! I’m off to read more of your work.“

It’s a glowing review and it made me feel extremely happy that not only did this person take the time to read my story, but to also leave a review saying how much they enjoyed it.  Let’s face it, most people don’t review or leave comments and any praise is life-giving to an insecure author, which I most certainly am.  

Here’s the problem I have with this; it builds me up while knocking others down. I don’t want to criticize this lovely reviewer who took time to tell me they enjoyed this story because I am so extremely grateful and I’m sure they are a lovely person.  However, I do have an issue with the generalization that most HP writers aren’t worth the time to read. 

As with anything in life there is bound to be both good and bad.  New writers are not going to have the polish of someone who has been writing for years.  I read some of my earlier stuff (which is so not seeing the light of day ever again) and I cringe.  I’ve been writing since I was 7 and even though I’ve been published, I’ve been a professional journalist, and I get positive feedback on most of my writing, I still think I suck.  And that’s on a good day!  This chapter this lovely reader is raving about was rewritten by me at least half a dozen times and went through TWO beta’s because I was struggling with part of it.  

There are some AMAZING writers in the HP fandom and I discover new ones every day.  One of my dear friends is one of the most talented writers I’ve ever read, fanfic or published, and she gets incredible abuse because of her popularity and her unwavering stance on what she (and I) considers appropriate reader behavior. It is so unmerited. She is so extremely talented and has written some fabulous stories and I know she is going to have amazing literary success with her original work, but the nastiness she gets is horrible.  It’s not fair and it isn’t right.  

Generalizing an entire fandom based on some “inexperienced” writers isn’t right either. Knocking others down to praise someone else leaves me feeling…twitchy. Of course it feels great when you receive praise and are singled out as being perceived better than others, but at the same time it is generalizing the largest and most popular fandom in fanfiction as being wholly inadequate because it has some stories and writers you don’t consider worth reading.  Of course it’s normal and absolutely fine to have preferences and think some things aren’t worth your time or that you simply don’t like them.  Insulting others to praise another just doesn’t sit well with me and seems wrong. 

Thank you so incredibly much to the lovely reviewer who praised my work because it means more than you can possibly imagine to my fragile little ego and I’m sorry if it feels like I’m condemning your review because it’s truly not my intent. I only want to help illustrate how it can be harmful and hurtful to others when critiquing in this way.  

**Steps off soapbox**

Pride, Prejudice, and more

author:  Jajungmyeon

YoonMin

AO3

Morden Day Pride and Prejudice AU

Description: A re-telling of the classic piece of work on finding love while dealing with issues of individuality and status, dreams and obligations, and promises and betrayals.

In which
Jimin cannot decide if he loves or hates Min Yoongi;
Seokjin tries not to, but has his heart broken;
And Taehyung constantly surprises everyone.


Comments: First of all, I would like to thank the person who told me to read this YoonMin fic based off of Pride and Prejudice. I forget if they did it anonymously or from their blog.  Because of you, I read this awesome 30 chapter and over 70,000 word story, till the sun was rising again.  And I regret nothing.   

This story is based off of Pride and Prejudice, which deals with themes of family, friends, love, misunderstandings, social norms, social statues, unbreakable bonds, trust, betrayal, parental pressure, and misconceptions.  Is so wonderfully.  It is told in mainly Jimin’s POV, but the other characters POV’s are added to give a different prospective on the story.  

Everything about how Jimin and Yoongi meet, to how they try not to fall for the other, to how they fall. Will have you on a roller coaster you don’t want to get off of.  The other members of Bangtan, some EXO, some GOT7, and an orignally character,  are wonderfully in this also and add so much dept to the story.  This is a long read but it will so be worth it.  So read it in one seating, like me, or several seating, just read this story.
