book pairings:Adrian Ivashkov and Sydney Sage
from Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

No, you will listen. For once, you’re going to hear something that doesn’t fit into your neat, compartmentalized world of order and logic and reason. Because this isn’t reasonable. If you’re terrified, believe me this scares the hell out of me, too. You asked about Rose? I tried to be a better person for her—but it was to impress her, to get her to want me. But when I’m around you, I want to be better because, well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you’re like… Like light made into flesh. I said it on Halloween and meant every word: you are the most beautiful creature I have ever seen walking this earth. And you don’t even know it. You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.


The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Seventeen-year-old Cassie is a natural at reading people. Piecing together the tiniest details, she can tell you who you are and what you want. But it’s not a skill that she’s ever taken seriously. That is, until the FBI come knocking: they’ve begun a classified program that uses exceptional teenagers to crack infamous cold cases, and they need Cassie.

Soon, it becomes clear that no one in the Naturals program is what they seem. And when a new killer strikes, danger looms closer than Cassie could ever have imagined. Caught in a lethal game of cat and mouse with a killer, the Naturals are going to have to use all of their gifts just to survive.

cs au; athena, the goddess of wisdom & ares, the god of war

They never said it aloud, but somehow they both knew; that kiss had undone an entire lifetime of memories—-brought them rushing back like water flowing from a broken dam. And she could see it in his eyes, the pain, the longing, the desperate need to understand her blatant refusal to acknowledge those memories.

She couldn’t go back to that—-to that hidden, painful and untimely love that destroyed them in the end.

au where ronan is a bad boy vampire and adam is a conservative alchemist with a chip on his shoulder and something to prove.

they both have daddy issues.

they take a self-defense class together.

at one point ronan buys a vintage mustang and pretends not to know how to drive it so adam will have to teach him.

i could go on. 


cs au ; ares, god of war & athena, goddess of wisdom
   ↳ athena stumbles upon the mask ares was wearing during their night together and the memory of what occurred overwhelms her.

It always comes in flashes; the touches, the feel of his body against hers, of him inside her, taking her. But this, oh, this stupid piece of gold painted plaster brings it all rushing back as she holds it in her hand. Heat courses through her and pools in her belly, memories skittering across her mind as she stares at it.

She has no idea how much time passes, how long she stands there staring at the blasted thing in her hands when her sister’s voice pulls her away from her thoughts.

“He’s quite the bed mate, is he not?”

It should not bother her. In fact, it should not even surprise her to hear that Ares has been one of her sister’s many lovers, but against her better judgment she had hoped that maybe she had been lucky enough to avoid her sister’s left overs.

Clearing her throat, Athena turned to face her sister, hoping that her displeasure at Aphrodite’s words was not evident on her face. “You would know, sister.” She murmured, letting the mask fall back onto the sheets she’d retrieved it from, walking past Aphrodite and out of her chambers, trying to will the memory of that night away.

cs au ; Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom & Ares, the God of War.

Baby when we’re touching in the dark, can you feel it?
I can hear the pounding of my heart, can you feel it?
When you take my body to the stars, I believe it
Boy this love is supernatural, can you feel it?

      She told him he should stay away—-there was no possible way they could continue this little game of theirs, in her opinion. No way for them to pursue this—whatever it was—without eventually getting caught and facing the wrath of Zeus himself.

            Yet every night he would walk back to the place where they swore it was the end, and she would be there, waiting, needing, craving.

      She would look at him with that silver gaze, that conflicted, broken stare and his very being ached for her, all the while hating her all the same—-could she not see what she was doing to him? The frustration of being told that she could not be with him, of being told that she refused to let herself love him? She had to know how much pain she was causing him—-causing them by fighting it.

                Their very souls called to each other and still she fought against it.

           Against him.

                        He refused to believe that this was how they would spend the remainder of their existence. He would make her see that their was no other way for them to be, unless it was with each other. No matter if she argued, or or fought—-

                                    He’d be damned if he let her slip right through his fingers.

so i was making a list of classic romantic plot devices that i always look for in fanfic and i came up with:
  • person 1 of otp must grudgingly ask person 2 of otp for favor 
  • otp unwittingly solves mystery together
  • otp gets thrown into a life or death situation (bonding ensues)
  • otp gets thrown into situation where they must pretend to be a couple because of one reason or another (possibly have to hug and/or kiss in front of target to make it seem real) (conflicted feelings ensue)
  • person 1 of otp sees person 2 of otp with a significant other and acts passive aggressively jealous about it much to the confusion of person 2
  • otp gets mistaken for a couple by someone outside their immediate circle of friends and acquaintances (stammering and affronted denial ensues)
  • person 1 of otp gets bullied or chastised by friend/relative/enemy and person 2 of otp comes to their defense to the surprise of both parties
  • otp gets thrown into situation where they have to dance together in front of a bunch of people (lots of blushing and heating up of skin ensues)
  • otp gets into heated argument that ends with heated making out
  • otp gets thrown into situation where they must babysit a small child and/or animal (cute family feels ensue)
  • person 1 of otp makes dramatic decision to leave the city/state/country only to change their mind at the very last minute, running back into person 2 of otp’s arms (happiness ensues)

then i realized

every. single. one.  of those things is canon in Bloodlines

and people wonder why sydrian is the otp to end all otps

words; 10,237
pairing; athena (emma)/ares (killian)

It was interesting, seeing him in action; it was a never-ending series of victories against man - mortal and immortal alike. While being something she’d found tiresome in the past, watching him in his area of expertise had quickly become one of her favorite past times.

Athena found herself watching match after match growing more and more amused. While he had far more skill and brute force, Athena could easily pick every weak spot only someone as trained in battle strategy as she could have picked up on. Oh, she could have had him on his back in a matter of seconds if she wanted.

“You should really stop gawking, father might actually catch you one of these days.”

ashley. ashley is an absolute sweetheart; don’t let her tell you otherwise. she’s my soul mate, my partner in crime, my parabatai, my best friend, the jones to my swan—-the list is very close to being literally endless. she knows how much she means to me, (she fucking better) so she’s got this little spotlight at the top of this list because i think everyone else needs to go fall in love with her.
