My favorite AUs, far and away, category of their own, are written by @thatmasquedgirl. Masque is the AU queen. Bow to her. Her work is brilliant and I will READ IT ALL.Find her on AO3 here: (x)
Just, read all of the things. I’ve made it a goal for my fandom life to read everything she’s written. I don’t even think I’m halfway through yet, but I’ll get there. May I suggest you start with Deathstroke!Felicity (trust me on this one).
40. Do you like fluff?
Oh yes, very much.
I’m selective about it for sure, but when fluff is good it’s so good.
Text message fics? Why yes, please and thank you. Also, DOG BLANKET. The Unbearable Hotness of Being by @machawicket (not sure if you’re sensing a theme here or not, but I am a Macha fangirl full stop. I love everything she writes, even when she kills my faves - which she does, so read those tags).
Now for tiva, I tend to like fluff when it feels real because they are the least fluffy ship I have ever shipped. They are a ship of pain and I LOVE IT (except for canon. I hate canon. Canon can die on a hill for all I care). So fluffy tiva can feel OOC to me depending. I’m selective on that one.
Bawson is delightful in that the writing is SO GOOD from literally everyone and if you’re really determined, you could read everything labeled Ginny Baker/Mike Lawson on AO3 to catch up (you can, I did).
But here are some of my favorites just because:
I’m all in for The Littlest Padre series by @magicinhermadness. Papa!Mike kills me every damn time and OMG Tillie Baker-Lawson shut the front door I love her to pieces.
This little ficlet from @darlinginmyway is like, everything I want from fanfiction…feels real and lived in but also sexy and funny and I WANT IT. Probably goes without saying, but I rec literally every single thing Jen has written for bawson (and olicity too, just saying).
Ok this ten fics that stuck with you list. I’ve been tagged by way too many people, and I’m not tagging anyone. You have to understand, I’ve read actual hundreds of fics, so this is basically the ten I could think of.
Also, this is the long post from hell, so behind the cut to spare your dash.
Landlords: At worst, they’re despicable buttgoblins who take all your money, and, at best, they’re pretty OK people who still take all your money. Taking your money obviously makes you unhappy, but there are tons of things you do that make them just as miserable. We interviewed three property managers – Marie, Nicole, and Jenn – and asked them about the worst parts of their jobs.
Hey, for the person that asked why Dianna is in London. I'm the fan who spotted her on Friday in Omeara and we got to speak and basically she said she's living in between here and New York, but also trying to travel and see more of the world. Also, she doesn't drive, takes uber.
Oh ok, well I try and take anon messages like this with a bit of a grain of salt, but this all seems fairly legit so thanks for the info anon!
