and that last scene was so so sweet

Not Your Average Zutara Fic Rec

So I’ve gone through a LOT of Zutara fanfiction, probably too much if I’m being honest, and finding good fics can be really hard. When looking up fic rec lists I’ve noticed that a lot of the lists are just the same select fanfictions recommended over and over (We get it, everyone and their mother loves ‘His Majesty Prefers Blue’ and ‘Stormbenders’ [I never finished HMPB, sue me]). 

So this list is for all of you who are in my shoes and can’t seem to find anything besides the same ten or fifteen stories recommended and are desperate for something new. Everything listed is complete! (If I listed the incompletes/abandoned stories I’d have a lot more chaptered stories listed… RIP ‘The Confrontational Approach’…) 

I have a lot of bookmarked stories that I have yet to read and am in the middle of (Almost caught up on @firelordandlady ‘s ‘Say Anything’!), so I’ll try to update this when I finish something I think deserves a recommendation. 

Chaptered

In the Same Candlelight by Like a Dove

In a world where there is no war, Zuko and Katara spend their summers together. Growing up is messy, embarrassing, and at times sad, but they think it might be okay because they have each other. Edited summary.

I know. I KNOW. I LITERALLY JUST SAID I WASN’T GOING TO RECOMMEND FANFICS THAT ARE ON EVERYONE’S LIST. But I NEED to mention this one. I spent so long not interested in this fic. I don’t like drastic AU’s, or modern AU’s. My taste is strictly canon divergence, so I didn’t think I would like this. I WAS SO WRONG. Trust me, if you are like me and don’t like big AU’s, read this anyway. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. Characterization is still so spot on, even with such a different take. Aang is precious. There is nothing but fluff, fluff, and fluff. It will melt you. You will probably die and your spirit will rise up smiling and beaming out rainbows and sunshine. That’s what happened to me. 

Lilacs and Lily Pads by sadladybug

A tale of clumsy courtship and calamitous court weddings, featuring awkward family encounters, floral mishaps, cultural complications, and good old fashioned fluff and conflict. Takes place in the five years following war’s end. For Zutara Week 2016. A prequel to Bones.

Clothe Me in Seasons, Dress Me in Snow is a very commonly recommended Zutara fic (And for good reason, I shed many tears reading it). But this two-shot (A companion to Bones, a smut one shot) by the same author is really underrated and beautifully written. It follows Zuko and Katara as they try to plan their wedding, as well as shows two scenes from before they got engaged that solidified the relationship to be one they knew would last. Just really well done overall and very very sweet. 

EDIT: I talked with the author and apparently it isn’t finished?? But they are apparently working on the next chapters so yay!! And each chapter is independent so it doesn’t feel unfinished.  

The Slow Path by Tazainian Devil

Eight years after the fall of Ozai, Aang returns to the friends he left behind - Taang, Zutara, Sukka

This is technically a Taang fic, and if I’m being honest I kind of just skimmed through the non-zutara chapters, but the Zutara storyline was good enough that I think it’s definitely worth the read. And the overall plot has a great premise. Be warned, it has a sequel that was never finished. 

Another Word For Alchemy by FanPanda13

Five years have passed since the Avatar defeated Fire Lord Ozai, and the members of the Gaang have all gone in their own direction. But when Aang invites them all to a Peace Summit at the North Pole and tells them of his new project, for which he will need their support, the group comes together again for adventure, fun and romance. AU. Zutara. COMPLETE.

So this fic is crazy for me. At first, it started as just really good natured fluff. The writing wasn’t anything fantastic (Although I loved how it broke the 4th wall and didn’t take itself seriously), and there were some definite OOC moments. But I had so much FUN with it. The plot (while definitely not the focus as everyone is more concerned about when Zuko and Katara will get together) was interesting, and there were some really sweet moments. It was also HILARIOUS and I had multiple moments where I genuinely laughed out loud. But then about five chapters before the end, the quality SKY ROCKETED. As the plot and mystery come together, the characters all come together in a moment that truly feels like it came from the show. Even the writing quality increases by a lot and I was genuinely shocked and impressed. Definitely recommend. 

Kyoshi Hold ‘Em by cupid-painted-blind

When a blizzard shuts down the fourth annual Peace Summit, the group has to find some way to pass the time. /Zutara, Taang, Jet/Mai, Jet/Everyone, Sukka

If you’re looking for a good crack fic, look no further. It’s post war and utter nonsense. Jet is alive for some reason??? No one questions it and he’s shipped with pretty much everyone. It’s funny, it’s decently written, there are drinking and sexy time shenanigans, and overall just lighthearted. Also, it does a great job of being a crack fic without crossing the line and becoming unfunny and just a trash fic. A lot struggle to find the balance and resort to going over the top and ridiculous, but this one does a really good job. 

Come With Me by Steamboat Ghost

Coauthored by fuzzytomato. Troubled over his newly restored honor, Zuko finds solace in the familiar guise of the Blue Spirit. In a chance meeting with the Painted Lady, a friendship is forged as the two heroes seek to help the Fire Nation’s neglected.

I’ll admit it: I’ve never gotten into Blutara fanfictions. I only read the first couple chapters of HMPB and dropped it after the tree scene. I don’t know, it felt really OOC for me and I may go back and read it again just because EVERYONE raves about it, but IDK. I’ve never been a huge Blutara fan because while I love the concept, I’d much rather see the Painted Lady and the Blue Spirit come together as equals. Most fics present Zuko behind his mask to Katara, and it feels imbalanced. There aren’t a lot of stories where we see their alter persona’s come together even though that’s the entire point of the parallel between the two. Insert this fic. I only wish there was a sequel dealing with Zuko in the Gaang after these events. Hey, a girl can dream. 

A Zutara Story Anastasia by LastSunset

Katara, the only suviving waterbender of the Southern Water Tribe, joins two con men, Zuko and Iroh, while a fearful admiral chases for her death. A Zutara Story. Based on the movie Anastasia.

So this isn’t so much a retelling of Anastasia but with Katara and Zuko as it is a fanfic version of the movie but with the characters names and world changed. It takes a lot of lines from the movie. But WHO CARES? It’s Anastasia and Zutara!!! What more do you need??? 

Oneshot

this burden you bear by cowlicklesschick

Word travels, and war stories will be told round campfires and on freighter ships until every person in the world knows what Master Katara did for the new Fire Lord. She fights the burning in her throat at the thought of people knowing why she had to heal him in the first place. Post-war Zutara.

This is an angst-with-a-happy-ending, which I say is the absolute BEST type of angst. Katara deals with the guilt of what Zuko did for her as the Fire Nation celebrates what she did to save his life during the Agni Kai. The two come together beautifully while struggling to see the feelings they both share. Really well written and like I said, it has a happy ending, which we all need. 

The Best of Me by Laririn-Shadow

The night before his eighteenth birthday Zuko wraps a bandage around his left wrist. He has a country to run and no time for frivolous things. It will make everything easier if he waits. Zutara Soulmates AU

Soulmate AU’s usually aren’t my thing (With the glaring exception of one Until Dawn Soulmate AU, but that’s besides the point), but I really enjoyed this oneshot. It isn’t sweeping or insanely romantic and the reveal isn’t “OMG I’VE LOVED YOU THIS WHOLE TIME” But it’s a subtle love that grows, which I really like. 

snuggling dysfunctional cats by emletish

Toph thinks Katara and Zuko were a ridiculously, incredibly, stupidly adorable couple. There is only one problem, they were not actually going out. This confuses Toph. could stand alone or be read as a companion peice to my stalking series

Fun fact: Before this oneshot, I had only ever read one fanfiction over 200k words, and had no desire to read another one again. And then I read this. This one shot was so fantastic that it was the reason I ended up reading the ‘Not Stalking Zuko’ trilogy (Also by emletish), which totals almost 900k words because this companion piece had me so sold. Yeah, it’s THAT good. 

my salvation, he’s not anything by sarsaparillia

Let’s run away and start another war. — Zuko/Katara.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ What can I say? I love the ‘Let’s run away together, consequences be damned’ trope. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Time is Ripe by Casa Circe

ZUTARA WEEK 2012 Day Seven: Seasons. There are many stages that a heart goes through before it can finally be ready for the love it was meant to have. The road is often a rocky one but eventually, it leads you home.

A oneshot for the Zutara Week 2012 prompt ‘Seasons’. Not too much to say about it. Short, sweet, and well written. What more do you need? 

Serendipity by Boriqua-chan

Iroh goes hunting for tea leaves and finds something…interesting. /Zutara week, day 1/

Secret relationships! Fluff! Happiness! And all from Uncle Iroh’s perspective!! Everything I love in one great oneshot! 

Too Close for Comfort also by Casa Circe

ZUTARA WEEK 2010 Day Three: Pain. After watching “The Ember Island Players”, no one is in the mood for teasing. But a little slip of the tongue leads to the painful realization that the play was more accurate than they were willing to admit.

There are two Zutara plots/tropes that I am a complete and utter SLUT for. The first is the ‘Let’s talk about that EIP show’ trope. This is one of my favorites. 

The Color of Truth is Red by Mrs. Pettyfer

Written for Zutara Week prompt “awkward.” Zuko and Katara discuss the Ember Island Players.

Another post EIP oneshot

Enlightenment by Blade Quill

Choices are made on the day of Zuko’s coronation, and sometimes, enlightenment is just the simple truth at hand. Zutara. AU of the final moments of the Book 3 Finale

The OTHER plot/trope I’m a slut for is finale rewrites. LET ME SEE THEM COME TOGETHER AFTER HE TAKES LIGHTNING FOR HER. Ugh, I love it. 

Framework by profoundlycan

What if in “Sozin’s Comet” Katara had come into the room instead of Mai? Zuko/Katara. Prequel to Schema.

 Another finale rewrite! Let’s just get Mai out of the picture here… 

Lightning Shocks the Heart by drunkzutarafeels

Why do our hearts remain dormant until a climactic moment makes time stand still?

And here’s yet another finale rewrite. There is a really popular Zutara gifset that someone animated of the Agni Kai ‘Thank you’ scene, but Katara kisses Zuko after she hugs him. This is the fanfiction equivalent of that gif set. 

Sunrise by lewilder

The days go on and on, and even if she feels more comfort from the moon, Katara learns to cherish the promise of each new sunrise. Zutara AU, largely finale-centric. Oneshot.

LAST FINALE AU I PROMISE. Really sweet, starts right after The Southern Raiders and goes past canon. 

all the ghosts we cannot kill (we learn to love) by raisindeatre

Zuko and Katara; the moments we didn’t see. Or: Maybe we are all somebody’s ghost. And maybe sometimes we can be more than that.

“…My quarrel has only ever been with you, Zuko,” she says, his name sharp on her tongue. “This has only ever been about me and you.”

“You’re wrong,” he rasps, his voice rough in the late afternoon sunlight that falls around them, tangles them in golden nets. “This has only ever been about me and the Avatar. Not you and me. What we hold between us has nothing to do with it.”

This is a really beautiful one-shot that follows a battered, war torn and hardened Zuko and Katara through the scenes we DIDN’T see throughout the entire show. A Zutara must-read.

Drabble Collection/Series

And Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Advocaat

A collection of humorous and crack-tastic oneshots corresponding to the days of Zutara Month

Really great Zutara Month themed drabbles, and it contains the only body swapping plot that I’ve read and really enjoyed. Also the chapters ‘Potential’ and ‘Festival’ are some of my all time favorites. 

Zuko Was No Coward by hootowl

Zuko was many things, but a coward he was not. A collection of Zutara100 prompts. Title may change.

Definitely some heartbreakers and angsty drabbles in here, but all well written and thoroughly enjoyable. If you read ANYTHING from this list, read chapter two of this drabble collection. I MELTED when I read it. It’s perfection. Aunt Wu’s prediction has always been a plotline I’ve loved in Zutara fanfiction, and this one just does it PERFECTLY. 

Zutara Week 2012 by ichilover3

A collection of oneshots inspired by the prompts for Zutara Week

Not much more to say. The first, third, and fourth prompts are my favorite from this series. 

Zutara Week 2015 by bianca_anna

It started at a tea shop and ended with forever. My entries for Zutara Week 2015. I hope you enjoy them.

Oh my GOODNESS. So they’re Zutara Week prompts, but all set in the same universe. The Zutara!Family depicted in these drabbles has become my headcanon. I’ve seen many a Zutara family, but this one is by far my FAVORITE. This is now my official family for them. I want the very last chapter fully animated because it’s so good and epic and I want more of this families adventures. 

‘It was Blue’s shoulder and her collarbone and her legs and her throat and her laugh her laugh her laugh.’ | ‘It was this: Gansey saying, “I like you an awful lot, Blue Sargent.”’

i did not mean for this to be 5k words.  i was actually gonna stop after the rooftop scene but i have NO CHILL WHATSOEVER.  anyway ya’ll so this is the last part of homecoming, but there will be an epilogue, which i have already planned.

Okay so, this is officially my first digital piece- kinda besides crappy first tries ages ago. I did all the line work on paper because I can’t figure out how to do so on my app without screwing up! Haha, anyways to the important bits!

So this little kylux piece is based on the first chapter of Here Comes Your Man by @hollyhark. I love this fic for many reasons, and that like tender first scene after they do it is pretty much amazing and sweet. I had to draw the armbands because I love the concept and have always liked wearing bands on my arms over my nonexistent muscles lol. I added the smoke after, to kind of represent the way even then on their first night things are already going up in smoke (The heavy fire theme throughout the story is also something I love about it) I’m not that great at much of anything digital art related yet so bear with me! I know the shading on the sheets and pillows is kind of awkward. :/ I hope this is okay to look at, I’m not sure how great it really is haha, but I hope some people enjoy it! <3 Thanks for the inspiration Holly! <3

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.

So I was rewatching To the Last Man (as one does), and it came to The Kiss, and I just…..

I’m really sad we didn’t get more scenes like this because: 

It’s so sweet??? Because Jack’s kinda mopey, but he’s also flirting, and Ianto’s not having any of that, so he just goes straight in for the kiss, and that’s arguably my favorite scene in the entire show.

Ianto’s so assertive here, which is great because I feel like fandom sometimes makes him really passive in the relationship, but he’s also trying to help Jack, because Jack’s obviously struggling with something. And it’s also one of the best Janto moments there is — other than Jack asking him out or the pterodactyl scene (and a few others) — and Ianto’s the one initiating it!

Just… Ianto.

RIGHT! I think Amanda is a great actor- that whole scene is designed to sit Wrong with us- Mary’s last DVD is dismissive and subtly sneering, as shown in Mary’s facial expressions, as you said. (more on the writing side of things in that scene here

Compare that with Amanda’s acting as Miss Mardle in Mr Selfridge- a really beautiful, moving performance, in my opinion.

For example: (spoilers though!)

We feel empathy for her as her character in Mr Selfridge and yet in what should be Mary’s ‘shining moment’ in her death scene, we feel none. That’s deliberate to me, with Amanda deliberately playing into the insincere melodrama of it. She is consciously playing Mary as a villain.

As for Mark’s tweet:

Blue Monday this year was Monday 16th January… I just saw @teapotsubtext say this was the day after The Final Problem… :)   Hopefully the RT means this detective show is worth the watch! ;)

Snowfall.

Summary: It’s your first time experiencing snow and Lin has some definite plans for you. 

Author’s Note: Okay, here comes admission time: I have never even seen snow. I’ve grown up in the South for my entire life and the only way I’ve witnessed snow is through movies, photos, and weather reports. So, please, bear with me as it is hard to describe and I also have no idea how sledding works. 

So, this could not have been completed without the help of my resident winter experts: @tempfixeliza and @strongenoughfoundation ♥♥ 

Words: 2,549 

Warnings: fluff so sweet you’ll get a toothache, no real-life knowledge of snow or sledding, horribly (?) written kiss scenes 

So, here we go with the snow day fic I’ve been promising you all for two days! 


When you woke in the morning, you were acutely aware of the chill you vaguely felt from the world outside. Deciding it wouldn’t be worth your time to get out of bed when temperatures were below freezing on a weekend, you snuggled deeper into the covers, tugging one of your blankets up to your chin. This kind of peace only lasted a few hushed minutes before you heard your boyfriend barreling into your bedroom. It was only then you realized he hadn’t been in bed beside you. You rolled your eyes, an annoyed smile appearing on your face as he ran straight to the bed and jumped into it. You pretended to be asleep, squeezing your eyes shut tighter, as he pulled his body over to you. You could just picture the goofy smile that his face undoubtedly held and resisted the urge to peak your eyes open to see the picture of innocence and delight he would most definitely portray. When you felt him pull you closer, his hands icier than you had expected, you also felt a shiver run down your spine. He took this as sign that you were awake.

anonymous asked:

Okay. How about this? List all of these and why. Favorite WA kiss? Favorite WA angst? Favorite WA love declaration? Favorite funny WA scene? Favorite Barry moment? Favorite Iris moment? Favorite WA moment in general?

1) Favorite WA kiss: Other than the hot make-out in episode 4, I would have to say my favorite kiss between them happens in episode 9 of season 3, because Barry just gifted Iris with their amazing loft and he was so excited to show her. After that, Barry tells her that moving in together isn’t a big step for him (because really, it’s not – Barry has waxed poetic to Iris multiple times, and done things like get her a replica of her mother’s ring). He was ready to move forward with her, to take the next step in their future together. The moment was just so sweet, also because he basically proposed to her when he told her that she was the last thing he wanted to see when he went to bed, and the first thing he wanted to see when he woke up (before Iris cut him off with a kiss lol). I know they had two kisses in the scene, but I’m mainly talking about after Iris said she loved him (and SHE USED FULL NAME WHICH KILLED ME) and Barry told her he loved her too. That moment was so sweet and genuine, and that scene alone showcases how much they love each other. Both kisses had me shook, though!

2) Favorite WA angst: Hands down, and I think my favorite scene of all time in season one, was the scene from Grodd Lives 1x21, where Joe was kidnapped by Grodd and Iris questioned why the team couldn’t figure out how to save him. The angst aspect was when she walked out, and Barry followed her. I loved their argument in that scene in the hallway, mainly because Iris got to express how she felt about Barry lying, which we all needed to hear since she were kept in the dark for pretty much the whole season. It’s also my favorite because Iris was tearing up, because she was truly hurt that her dad and mainly Barry would lie to her, because “you were supposed to be my best friend, Barry!” That line.. shook! “I am your best friend!” I literally know the entire dialogue in that scene, lol. It was just heart breaking because Iris was truly hurt, because she gave Barry that much capacity to hurt her, because she loved him. Also, I will never not laugh (and roll my eyes) at Barry equating keeping the secret from Iris to her hidden feelings for him. Not only that, but the acting from both of the actors, specifically from Candice was A1. Definitely my favorite scene from season 1. 

3)  Favorite WA love declaration: This is so hard to choose! I feel like moments that can’t be considered love declarations, are in my opinion. I’ll keep this one short, but I guess I will go with Barry’s first confession in 1x09. I think it was so sweet and raw from Barry, and it’s been the most open he’s been to everyone. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and he felt like how owed it to Iris to tel her then – although it was ill-timing. The part that made me choose this declaration was because of Barry’s “I loved you before I even knew what the word love meant.” That line did it for me because Barry defines love int he way he loves Iris. When you’re young, you don’t really know what love is. You know it’s characterized my some feeling, but Barry as a child knew whatever he felt for her, must be love. He essentially said, “that, that right there, whatever I feel for her, it has to be love.” And that makes me cry. Of course Iris’s silent tears added tot he scene, because you could tell she were mad and sad, because it’s like “Why now?” in her mind, everything has completely changed for them. She’s always seen Barry as her best friend, and probably couldn’t differentiate her romantic feelings for him vs her platonic ones, so she buried them – and characterized them as one. Now, that Barry told her he loved her this entire time, you have to imagine in her head she’s thinking about and questioning every single moment they have shared, because for her it’s always been one thing. Now that Barry told her this, she knows that in every moment they have shared, he’s been in love with her. I lied, that wasn’t short at all lol! 

4) Favorite Funny Scene: Have WA had many funny scenes? Lol. I don’t know if this scene be classified as funny, but the first scene that popped into my head was in episode 3x09, when Barry just showed Iris their soon-to-be lovely home together, and Iris said “I got you a wallet.” LOL. That line made me alight and cry, because Iris was so genuine and sweet and she’s in shock that he gave her that, while she gave him a wallet. And Barry’s “I’m sure I love it” made me CRY (but also laugh while crying) because HE WAS DEAD ASS SERIOUS. Barry is going to cherish that wallet for everything it’s worth, simply because Iris got it for him lol. I’m sure he tells everyone t work that Iris gave him that wallet, just to show it off. This scene also solidified that Barry is the better gift giver :) 

5) Favorite Barry moment: If this is speaking about them individually, this is tough, because there are so many Barry scenes to choose from, lol. I don’t know if this classifies as “favorite Barry moment” because it’s his tears and his conversation with Nora in Welcome to Earth 2 on the phone that made me cry. It was the first time Barry heard Nora’s voice since he were a child. Technically it’s not his mother, but Earth 2 Barry’s but it was still all the same for Barry. The moment he heard her voice on the phone, and had to play off as E2 Barry and started to cry (which makes it even more sad? Because E2 Barry still has his mother). It was just a heart breaking scene, and well-acted one all around. Kudos to Grant.

6) Favorite Iris Moment: This is difficult as well, but not as difficult because Iris has had so many wonderful scenes that made me cheer for her. I loved the scene where she’s talking to Joe in Grodd Lives in CCPN, because she was again, expressing her POV which was lacked in season 1 due to her being in the dark about Barry’s secret. My favorite moment so far though, is in 3x11 where she has the conversation with Wally in CCPD. She had so much agency in that episode, but in that scene alone because she wanted to mattered. She got to express her fear of dying, but also getting to do something about it because she got to be. She knew about her potential fate, so she took matters into her own hands and didn’t let her consume her (at that moment). She wanted to be more than just a daughter, or sister, or a girl friend. The dialogue in that scene was A1, and really shows what kind of person Iris is. She loves being all of those things, but it doesn’t always define her. Her compassion, her need for justice and truth is what’s also important, her job as a reporter! I cried and cheered for her so much in that scene and the entire episode (like I always do). 

7) All of my favorite WA moments are here, although they aren’t that updated. I want to add the scene from 3x10, where Barry tells Iris about her potential fate int he time vault. 1) the acting was so good? Grant and Candice play really well off of each other, but I felt like this particular scene had a much bigger impact because of the context and the emotions. 2) Poor Iris! Her whole life has been turned upside down, and she was so selfless to the point where her first thought was to tell Barry to stop letting criminals go to save her, and to protect Joe after. I loved Barry’s anger in that scene as well because he felt like Iris gave up a bit when she asked when it would happen. For him, it’s like Savitar already won. The entire scene just had me in shambles. 

Hope this sufficed! Gifs by @westallengifs and @valeriemperez

I’ve only super recently gotten into shadowhunters and stuff so I don’t have a whole lot but here are the ones from my ao3 bookmarks, and…wow they’re all malec oops lmao

i’m just going to put terra incognita by reviate at the top for people who didn’t see it. It’s still the best Alec centered malec fic I’ve ever read and it deals w/ super heavy subject matter (detailed content warnings are provided) it’s so so so good. Like read it if you haven’t already, you won’t regret it. 

The Right Kind Of Love by onyxmoon - one of the tags is ‘unnecessarily long sex scene’ and yeah I skipped over that but the rest is quite good. Mostly a character study w/ hurt/comfort and tiny bit of plot. 

Who Ya Gonna Call? by MenckensChrestomethy - Short and sweet. Just a little fic about how people always ask Magnus for stuff but have never given him anything. The last section is my favourite and features bamf!Magnus w/ a bonus of confused shadowhunters

takes on any shape by oh_la_fraise - This is a deaging fic that I absolutely love and has an adorable kid Magnus and the main characters just trying to deal w/ a smol warlock kid while reversing what happened.

we let our battles choose us by oh_la_fraise - the end of the description reads ‘Magnus and Jace become bros on the camping trip from hell.’ and that’s basically what it is. 

Warlock Flu by leetje - super short but it’s a sicfic and it’s very nice and cute.

pillow talk by lacheses - Bit of an alternate universe, although I think canon divergence is more fitting. it’s been awhile since I’ve read it but I liked it and it’s really good. Lots of napping and introspection. 

Under New Management by Thessili - An AU where Magnus and Alec never met, Clary didn’t get her memories back and so Valentine got the mortal cup and the Clave didn’t do anything.  Magnus, Luke, Raphael and a bunch of other downworlders defeat Valentine and create a different set of Accords where downworlders basically supervise shadowhunters to make sure another valentine doesn’t happen. It’s in progress but I’m liking it so far. It’s a slow burn with a cool plot. 

Anyways I hope you enjoy them!

‘It’s You’ English Lyrics

Like a scene in a movie
You and I are in slow motion
Or is that just me? yeah

Last night, I had a good dream
So I feel good today

Girl the way that you do it
so wonderful
You make me crazy sweet lady
so beautiful, girl

What should I say first?
I think I’m still too young

Girl you got me singing

Woh woh
My heart’s fluttering
For the first time in a while baby
Woh woh
Really fluttering
Can’t even talk, baby

When will you come? good timing
My lips are dying to talk
Time cruelly passes, yeah

Filling my stomach with water
Looking at my phone for no reason
Looking at you again

Girl the way that you do it
so wonderful
You make me crazy sweet lady
so beautiful, girl

What should I say first?
I think I’m still too young

Girl you got me singing

Woh woh
My heart’s fluttering
For the first time in a while baby
Woh woh
Really fluttering
Can’t even talk, baby

Oh baby girl it’s you
Oh baby girl it’s you
Oh baby girl, baby girl,
oh it’s you
Oh baby girl it’s you
Oh baby girl it’s you
Oh baby girl, baby girl,
oh it’s you

Baby it’s about time
I stop frontin’
Every time I see you
I feel something
You take me far away
to a better place
Gotta have it gimme
all your loving

Wuh in our own place
I wish we would be trapped
Girl with you
girl with you

Girl you got me singing

Woh woh
My heart’s fluttering today
I’m burning up, baby
Woh woh
Really fluttering
My heart is trembling baby

Oh baby girl it’s you
Oh baby girl it’s you
Oh baby girl, baby girl
oh it’s you
Oh baby girl it’s you
Oh baby girl it’s you
Oh baby girl, baby girl
oh it’s you

Cursed Child 23/04 thoughts !!!

This show is my third time seeing cursed child, second time in dress circle, second time premium tickets. Paid a ridiculous amount of money for the tickets (they were the £250 ones,,, I cried when the money left my bank account) buttttt the seats were amazing. Row C, aisle seats !!! amazing. Incredible. Best seats I’ve had so far.
Little run down of moments that made me smile:

Anto:
Everything. He is a gem, a rare gem. This is the second time I’ve seen anto as Scorpius and (my first one was in August last year) he has changed COMPLETELY. He is so much more gentle and emotional, his voice is still squeaky and charismatic but he’s outgoing in a less obvious way. His movements and voice mean that whenever there is an exciting, funny moment- the audience appreciate it so much more. Everyone loved him today. He was so adorable ??? He kept wiping his nose, sniffing (I thought anto was sick but I’m pretty sure he was fine at stage door), fiddling with his hair. The library scene and staircase ballet ended me. I’m pretty sure he actually cried at the staircases. Therefore I cried. He was so sweet during the owlery scene. He and Sam kept bumping into each other during the show and in the owlery scene as Scorpius says “and wake up everyone at hog warts?” he just echoed “hogwarts warts warts warts” and everyone died. The whole yelling “help” moment was sweet as well. He ran across the stage and everyone lost it. He and Sam were also very sweet during a lot of the play. On the train anto knelt down and held onto sams leg, cute. In the church scene they side hugged and patted each other on their backs. Also as Albus reassured Harry he was fine, anto was sat on the floor and he shuffled over to gently squeeze Sam’s arm. Eeeeep! Special mention to the last scene- the two of them were soooo close, there was a nose boop, several pokes and it was adorable. He also repeatedly overexaggerated certain lines like “you can stand with me” as Albus got sorted into slytherin. I love anto, I can’t wait to see him in something new but I will miss him as my baby Scorpius.

Sam:
Oh Sam. Sam is so under appreciated, today was a Sam day for me. I spent so much time just admiring Sam. He’s exceptional. His angst and emotion, facial expressions and movements destroy me. Even in the first few scenes as he sits on the trunk watching everyone stare he had me broken. His facial expressions…. gahhhhh!!!!! I told him several times today how exceptional he is and he’s responded to all of them so I’m glad he’s getting the love he deserves :’) he looked so sad during the ballet, as usual. And he and Jamie were on fire today during the arguments. Right up in each other’s faces, yelling and so overcome with emotion. He’s the kind of actor who doesn’t just learn what he has to do- he learns the lines but the lines become part of who his character is and it all feels so natural. He’s so talented. His interaction with poppy always makes me cry and his chemistry with anto,,, there would be no scorbus without Sam and it seems that people forget that sometimes. He is so talented and deserves love and acknowledgement of that. He was so incredible during the Delphi/Scorpius/Albus scenes. His face and voice when Scorpius was crucioed god I cried so hard. Sam always brings something new and fresh and I feel so honoured to have seen his Albus three times. He made Albus for me, he is Albus and I honestly appreciate his characterisation so much. Sam clemmett is an exceptionally talented actor and I will be front at the queue to purchase tickets to whatever he does next.

James Howard:
Have only ever seen Alex’s draco so this was a wonderful surprise to see James. And boyyyy he loved up to my expectation. Alex has a more humorous side, his lines have a hint of laughter and he makes draco funny while also sensitive. But James,,,,, god James took it to a different place. He took draco somewhere darker, someone trapped inside his own emotions. I felt the intensity whenever he was on stage. During the duel with harry, he sounded almost sinister on the “I want to hurt you” likes. It was immense. The office scene in part two with Scorpius,,, the way he speaks the line about Scorpius. I was so emotional during his delivery of the speech about Astoria. He built up all these sinister walls around draco and tore them all down in the really emotional moments. I am so glad he is taking over as draco because he is AMAZING. During the church scene he comforted Scorpius at the door, kept rubbing his shoulder asking if he was okay. I felt the malfoy love and he played dad!draco so well. During the next scene watching Lily and James die,,, he pulled anto into his side, comforted him with love while battling his own emotions. Breathtaking. Truly breathtaking. I’m honoured to have seen him perform.

As usual the rest of the cast were incredible. Noma always impresses, Paul was as funny as always. The polyjuice scene always brightens my day. Jamie was incredible. He was more emotional than I’ve ever seen him before. During fights and yelling and after the dreams he was so deep into Harry I had shivers down my spine. I also want to celebrate poppy because she is also lovely. I love her Ginny. She makes her the doting mother while retaining the independence and strength Ginny has had all her life. I also just want to appreciate her run- when she runs on and off stage it makes me happy. She has an adorable run. I wanted to tell her at stage door but it seemed like such a random thing to say to someone lmao.

The audience took a while to get into it today. There weren’t many laughs until the second interval of part 1. Which was a shame because the polyjuice potion scene didn’t get as much appreciation as it deserved. A lot of the funny lines also got overlooked (imo) but lord knows hannah was there laughing herself to tears at everything. By the end everyone was enthralled. Standing ovation, cheers and tears and happiness all around. The rightful response. This cast are immense. I love them. I love this play.

I think you guys don’t understand, but I am so glad to watch this scene.

Because it doesnt matter how many times Koushiro calls her “egocentric” or Mimi calls him “insensitive”, this scene proves that true friends can forget their differences and take care of each other.

Maybe Koumi shippers can be a little disappointed because there has only been a couple of scenes with them (and the other one was an argument), but from my point of view, Koushiro had to be focused on research, so he was not allowed to think about “crushes” or something else during the OVA.

In the last episode of Kokuhaku it was so sweet from Mimi, knowing she was still a little mad at him, deciding to check on him and even bringing him his beloved Oolong Tea. She was worried about him because she knows he’s giving it his all for find out a way to meet their partners again, even though the others were not sure about that. They are really the carriers of the crests of Knowledge and Purity. 

So, I dont know about you, but I could see a little koumi development here and I really appreciated it. And with the question: “But what are Mimi’s feelings about him?” .

In romantic meaning, we don’t know it yet. But in friendly meaning well, with this scene, words are unnecessary.

Jessica Jones 105: AKA The Sandwich Saved Me
  • I like that we get to see Jessica as an adult but before Kilgrave, because it’s clear that she’s still angry and disaffected and antisocial, but the scale is so different. I do like that the show established that Kilgrave wasn’t her only source of trauma - that abuse and assault survivors are more than what they’ve been through. (Well, and it’s not all trauma either, obviously.)
  • It’s notable that Jessica tells Trish immediately about Malcolm - she’s come really far in just a few episodes in terms of opening up to and relying on her friend.
  • This scene in a reasonably busy Union Square Park must have been so annoying to film.
  • Interesting that Simpson is not subjected to the rigorous manscaping regimen of every other shirtless Marvel dude. Body hair = evil? (That’s…problematic.)
  • “Hey, last night was fun but that doesn’t mean I want your opinion.” CLASSIC.
  • Trish in the mask is so cute.
  • I like that Jessica has no technique whatsoever - because where would she have learned it, and why would she need to learn it?
  • “I can’t do that thing where I make you feel better, all right? I don’t know how.” JESSICA.
  • The sweet way Jessica says “I helped someone. I made a difference” when she has to answer Kilgrave honestly without her usual prickly defenses is heartbreaking.
  • How did Kilgrave find Malcolm again after seeing Jessica rescue him the first time?
  • “…and save me for once.” Jessica just wants someone to save her. She’s so tired.

Reunion between Montclair and Elara Dorne complete!

As I mentioned to @carterashofficial the cliffhanger from the last post leads directly into that first screenshot where you can resume the romance. It’s kind of abrupt but whatever.

Elara tries to berate herself one last time, but dashing Colonel Montclair will have none of it. After all, it’s not like he did any searching himself (albeit only because Bioware didn’t let him) and being with her again matters more than trying to pretend like someone’s really to blame.

This happier part of the reunion is way too short for my taste - I would have really liked at least a couple of more lines focusing on being together again. Maybe a reference from either of them about being able to bring Havoc (sans Tanno) back together again or, jeez, a Jorgan/Elara/trooper scene (please!), maybe a longer kiss so I don’t miss screenshotting it somehow.

But they look so happy together that I can’t complain too much. One of the reasons this romance is my favorite is because of the genuine warmth and sweetness that it has, and they did capture that feeling pretty well. Seriously, look how happy she looks in the last few screenshots! I just want to pinch her cheeks!

There better be more content with her as this story progresses, though, especially since there was so little on Iokath.
