bet u look good on the dancefloor

(Art)ic Monkeys

been reading a lot of klance fics lately so i thought i’d share it w you guys!! here’s 14 of them and definitely my favorites. comes with the title (duh), description, a review by yours truly, and link to the fic. the writers of said fics also have some gorg other masterpieces so be sure to check those out!

1. ) Smile for the Stars by maIikcutie


Though he’s been dealt many bad cards, Lance isn’t sure he can handle this one: winding up stranded, a million lightyears away from home, with only Keith to keep him company.
The universe is cruel.


amazing a+++ fic but i strongly advise not to read this unless you are willing to live the rest of your life broken hearted and Sad. i promise ur heart will be wrecked but in the best way possible!!! a buncha artists on tumblr made art for this so be sure to check those out & also there’s a epilogue-ish thing for this that dulls the pain a lil less and its called The Stars Smile Back in case yall were interested

2. ) Dirty Laundry by Gibslythe


“Two whole months of free laundry in exchange for two weeks of being my fake boyfriend. Deal?”
Keith hesitated for a moment. Was this really worth it? Hardly. Lance was an asshole, and he wasn’t sure what fake dating would entail. But, free laundry was free laundry, right?
“Alright, it’s a deal.”
Or: Lance makes the mistake of telling his Mom he has a boyfriend coming home with him for Christmas. Keith makes the mistake of agreeing to be Lance’s ‘fake boyfriend’.


if u love slow burn then BOY ur gonna love this !!!! mama lance is so warm i luv her !!! fake dating aka one of my fav tropes so 11/10 and i just rly love this ok im in tears

3. ) call me, beep me by safra


(00:31) Do you think she gave me the wrong number on purpose?
(00:31) Or was it a genuine mistake?
(00:32) Like maybe she writes funny and I misread it?
(00:32) Some of the numbers do look a little dodgy…
(00:33) Cause, you know, her threes couldvery easily be poorly formed eights? And maybe she writes her sevens like her ones?
(00:45) What
(00:46) The
(00:46) Fuck??
(00:47) Oh good, you are awake!
where lance messages the wrong number and things kind of snowball from there


i love through-chat fics therefore i am so in love with this!!!!!! your everyday "wrong number” trope but so so so much better!!! cute and happy

4. ) Seasons by fairietailed


“Do you think we’ll be together, still, by the time we make it home?”
Lance is quiet for a moment, thinking. Then he says, “That depends. Do you plan on going somewhere?”
Keith laughs, threading his fingers through Lance’s hair.
“No, I suppose I don’t.”


their relationship is just SO PURE AND SOFT and so well written i’m in luuuv but the open ending will shatter and will most likely rip u apart

5. )  Don’t Break Connection, Baby by princedeadend


Keith works part-time as a phone sex operator and receives a prank call from Lance. This does not go as planned for Lance. Thus begins the adventure of our dear sweet idiot continuing to call Keith to fuck with him (but not like fuck fuck with him…at least not yet). And y'know, eventually having legit conversations with him and getting attached and growing on Keith.
aka the phone sex operator fic no one asked for


this is soooooooooo cute and adorable and wow i luv ittttt!!! made me smile so hard it hurts

6. ) He Who Fights Monsters by magisterpavus


In a world where monstrous dragons terrorize humanity daily, the Garrison trains valiant Knights to slay the evil beasts and defend Earth. But when Knight cadet Lance Espinosa is kidnapped by a strange red dragon who kills its own kind, certain truths are revealed…and so are the true monsters.


oh my god the buildup may be slow but i promise it’s worth it like everything just falls perfectly into place !!! and its so adorable and creative and just wow not ur usual klance fanfic and that just makes it 1000x better and also,,, dragons !!

7. ) Bonding Time by magisterpavus


“Shiro, I fucked up,” Keith blurted, wringing his hands.
Shiro paused mid-punch, shooting him a quizzical look. “What? What happened?”
“I think,” Keith whispered, “I think I accidentally roofied Lance. With my dick.”


galra keith will always and forever be my fav au so this is a definite fav for me !!! i love the other 3 sequels it comes w too!! and nsfw content too dont even lie ik u guys are thirsty for that

8 .) Just Static by Jessadilla


-iro, Hunk, Kei—, nybody? I’m—-
–I’m sorry guys. This is all my–
—I found my coordinates. They’re–
-guys. I hear something—
-end transmission-
Alone on a hostile planet, transmissions aren’t getting through. How did it come to this?


this fic got me sad and crying in the middle of the night )’: wont leave u too sad tho the ending is pretty nice

9. ) What a Healing Pod Can’t Repair by Remember_Me


The compromised wormhole was ripping apart at the seams, sending everyone spiraling away in completely different directions. Lance could feel himself being pulled and bent in ways he was definitely not supposed to be.

Stitching the team back together after everyone is separated is difficult, and for one Paladin rescue wouldn’t be coming for a very long time.


no words. literally no words. this was so painful and just wow the buildup will shatter u i swear )’: also poor bb lance i sob. comes with cool-looking art which makes it a whole lot better

10. ) Seen: 5:29 by SpeedOfSins


AU where Keith is some important guy who has a business suit, and lance is a good housewife. (tha ts a lie, i honestly dont have a summary but this fic hurts, i have been told by at least 3 people)
Written in text format


will wreck u, beware!! may be short but enough to bring u to tears honestly

11. ) On Thin Ice by Minadora


Once upon a time, two Canadian nerds decided to start a figure skating au about their two space sons and their wonderful misfit friends. Ten pages of headcanons later we finally put electronic pen to electronic paper and created this monstrosity. This multi-chapter fic chronicles the lives of a hockey player named Keith who gets forcibly enlisted into figure skating lessons by his brother, Shiro, to “work on his footwork”. There he meets a pompous - yet talented - figure skater named Lance and gets swept away by both the sport and the skater.
Enjoy the ride because it’s only just started.


the description says it all !!!!! a fic beloved by the vld fandom and gosh whats not to love honestly???? also the whole gang is so happy !!! (sidenote: this is unfinished and its killing me)

12. ) I bet you look good on the dancefloor by xShieru


“So like in 'Step Up’?” Allura shrugs. “Now that you put it like that - yes. I guess it’s just like in 'Step Up’.” The smile that she sends Shiro’s way - followed by a shy wave, eugh - is sickening to say the least, and Lance still doesn’t believe in dance camps.
Lance McClain’s dancing career begins and ends with Keith.
Keith just wants to find out what Lance’s deal is.


if u love step up ur gonna LOVE this !!!! i love it so so so so much can i just say and wow keith is so hot ffs

13. ) thunderstruck by xShieru


Lance doesn’t pine for anyone ever, Keith’s never been to a dance, Hunk tries his best to be supportive, Shiro is very done, and Pidge steals a car.But hey, it could’ve been worse.


space prom!!!!!!! and cute pining gays!! whats not to love about that?

14. ) In English, Please


Lance thinks he can get away with flirting with Keith if it’s in Spanish. Lance thinks if he says the words angrily enough no one will catch on to the ruse. Lance thinks his secret crush is safe. Lance, my friends, is very…very wrong.


two words - too. cute. i can’t even with this fic

Rosi’s Ideal Arctic Monkeys Setlist

Shoutout to @monsieurlennon @jossmayfair @arcticmonkeyys @train-inthedistance and @esparafuso for tagging me in this painful and brain breaking exercise.

What would your current perfect Arctic Monkeys set list be?
Rules: TLSP and Submarine Soundtrack are off the table but all the AM b-sides are obviously fair game. OKAY let’s do this: Cap 20 songs including the encore (and in order!!) 

(First off. PICKING ONLY 20 SONGS IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. IT’S LIKE WHEN SOMEONE ASKS ME WHAT MY FAVE AM RECORD IS. Spoiler alert, they’re all my faves. This is like asking a parent to choose a favourite child. Anyway, moving on to this monumental task.)

1- Do I Wanna Know? (I have an intense feeling of nostalgia for the dramatic instrumental intro from the AM era. I swear that intro could raise me from the dead.)

2- I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor (Bonus points if Alex yells out “Señoritas” before starting the song.)

3- The View From The Afternoon (Matt would ABSOLUTELY KILL IT ON THE DRUMS. Bang bang Mr. Drummer Man. Y’all are welcome for that visual.)

4- Fluorescent Adolescent (Cue nostalgia because “The best you’ve ever had is just a memory”. Just punch me in the gut. It would hurt less.)

5- Do Me A Favour (Nostalgia Intensifies.)

6- Cornerstone (I’d like for the audience to pull out cell phones and lighters and wave them in the air dramatically as they belt out this particular tune.)

7- My Propeller (Get everyone going again. Ladies and gentlemen, start your propellers.)

8- Crying Lightning (The guitars in this give me life.)

9- Brianstorm (Mat killing it on the drums once again.)

10 - She’s Thunderstorms (Another guitar-giving-me-life song. Also notice the weather theme.)

11- Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair (The intro to this song also gives me life. Also Alex’s hip movements during this. Only real 90’s kids remember. Reblog if you’re a true 90’s kid.)

12- Library Pictures (#1: The instruments in this song. LIFE GIVING. #2: MOSH PIT.)

13- Fireside (Cue visual of potatoes in a pot, the water reaching a rolling boil. You stare at the bubbling water and feel nostalgia for some nameless lover. Second hand yearning.)

14- Only Ones Who Know (From 0 to 100 real quick. Yearning intensifies.)

15- I Wanna Be Yours (Cell phones and lighters in the air. Sway to the beat. Feel the music cleanse your soul.)

16- Arabella (Allow Alex’s hip movements and stripper moves to kill you slowly and revive you all at once.)



18- R U Mine? (The formerly deceased audience returns from the afterlife after hearing the first notes of this song.)

19- Little Illusion Machine (Alex announces a surprise guest. You cannot believe your eyes as Miles Fucking Kane walks onto the stage. THE AUDIENCE FUCKING RIOTS. ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE IN THE MOST AWESOME WAY.)

20- 505 (Alex and Miles perform this pressed against one another as they share a microphone a la TLSP. Tears of joy wash over the faces of everyone in attendance.)


so I got a bit carried away today… dunno if they’re rubbish or what but please don’t hate me 

credit if using (haha yeah right) 

The signs as Arctic Monkeys songs

Aries // Mardy Bum  // Courageous and confrontational

“I see your frown, and it’s like looking down the barrel of a gun and it goes off. And out come all these words. Oh there’s a very pleasant side to you a side I much prefer.”

Taurus // R U Mine? // Stubborn and Patient

“I go crazy ‘cause here isn’t where I wanna be and satisfaction feels like a distant memory. And I can’t help myself, all I wanna hear her say is : R U mine?“

Gemini // She’s thunderstorms // Versatile and lively

“She came and substituted the peace and quiet for acrobatic blood flow.
Concertina cheating heart beat. Rapid fire“

Cancer // 505 // Protective and emotional

“But I crumble completely when you cry. It seems like once again you’ve had to greet me with goodbye. I’m always just about to go and spoil the surprise, take my hands off of your eyes too soon.”

Leo // Arabella // Kind and dominating

“(Rubs her lips) ‘round a mexican coke. (Makes you wish) that you were the bottle. (Takes a sip) of your soul and it sounds like. Just might have tapped into your mind and soul, you can’t be sure.”

Virgo // I bet that you look good on the dancefloor // Watchful and analytical

“Oh, there ain’t no love, no Montagues or Capulets, are just banging tunes and DJ sets and… Dirty dance floors, and dreams of naughtiness

Libra // Fluorescent Adolescent // Flirty and indecisive

“You used to get it in your fishnets, now you only get it in your night dress. Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness, landed in a very common crisis“

Scorpio // Crying Lightning // Tough and secretive
“You never look like yourself from the side, but your profile did not hide, the fact you knew I was approaching your throne. With folded arms you occupy the bench like toothache. Stood and puff your chest out like you never lost a war

…. And your past-times, consisted of the strange and twisted and deranged.”

Saggitarius // Snap out of it // Independent and free

“Forever isn’t for everyone. Is forever for you? It sounds like settling down or giving up, but it don’t sound much like you girl“

Capricorn// Stop the world ‘cause I wanna get off with you // Ambitious and practical

“Well I know that getting you alone isn’t easy to do but with the exception of you I dislike everyone in the room and I don’t wanna lie but I don’t wanna tell you the truth. Get the sense that you’re on the move and you’ll probably be leaving soon.“

Aquarius // Brianstorm // Original and detached

“'Cause we can’t take our eyes off the t-shirt and ties combination… Well, see you later, innovator. Some want to kiss, some want to kick you, there’s not a net you couldn’t slip through.”

Pisces // Do I wanna know? // Sensitive and imaginative

“'Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow. When I play it on repeat until I fall asleep, spilling drinks on my settee

….Maybe I’m too busy being yours to fall for somebody new.”

anonymous asked:

hey sorry if you've been asked before but do you know of any fics where draco teaches harry to dance?

lol honestly the only fic I can think of is my own which seems like a cop out. I’m also assuming u mean ballroom and not the always popular Draco is a Sexy Dancer because I stand firm behind the ‘draco doesn’t know how to move his hips in a circle and is not sure he can’ headcanon. I’m going to do a bit of investigation on ao3 and rec some that look worth a read! I haven’t read these, but I think they might work for your criteria/be fun :)

Girls in Peacetime Go Dancing - feelsforbreakfast (me, ik my username has feels in it IM SORRY TOO) - 23k - When the gang ends up back at Hogwarts for their 8th year, McGonagall proposes a Yule Ball to raise morale and promote inter-house unity. Unfortunately, that means obligatory dance lessons. Even more unfortunately, Harry’s a shit dancer and Draco doesn’t know the meaning of ‘follow.’ Feat. the mysteries of fiber art and the repeated butchering of Headmistress McGonagall’s name
Notes: this is femslash where Draco teaches Harry to dance and Harry is not having any of it, until she is 

Such Great Heights - softlyforgotten -  93k - Draco Malfoy, wide-eyed and pale and in a decidedly ragged shirt, was crouched next to the pile of whatever the dragon had been eating.
Harry threw himself to a halt and yelled, “Merlin, how many times do I have to save your life?”
Notes: so this somehow came up in my searching and I’ve heard good things about it already. I think there is more club type dancing involved here and possibly not any teaching, but it looks lovely.

So You Think You Can Drarry - @icanhelpyouthere - 1k - Draco and Harry both make it into a prestigious dance company workshop where they are assigned partners to choreograph and perform a dance with. Having planned on winning this competition with his years of extensive dance training, Draco is dismayed to find himself paired with a loud, untrained street dancer.
Notes: this looks like FUN and DANCING so its goin on the list

Bring Your Dancing Shoes - darkravenwrote - 1k - In which Harry overhears Draco talking about his expectations for any date he takes to the Yuleball and is confident he can deliver, and Draco has always been a master of strategy and getting his own way.
Notes: this looks like 1k of fun tropiness

Quickening - lomonaaeren - 6k - Draco is bored at the holidays, and has volunteered to be a dance teacher at Hogwarts. (McGonagall, for some misguided reason, wants to make the Yule Ball a tradition). Here he meets Potter again.
Notes: this looks like pretty much what u asked for tbh

As You Like It - BelladonnaLee - short? - Track 1: In the ballroom, after midnight.

I Bet That You Look Good on The Dancefloor - birdsofshore - 28k - Harry felt lit up from inside as soon as he entered the bar. There were blokes dancing together, their bodies close to one another, not keeping a wary distance as Harry was always careful to do when he was near another man. God, he wanted this – wanted it so much he could taste it, a metallic tang of heat and desire. He suspected nothing would ever be the same again – especially when he saw who else was in the room.
Notes: this I think is less what you’re asking for but I trust birdsofshore so it’ll be a good read if nothing else.

also in my travels i found a fic tagged Harry Potter/Adam Lambert so ur WELCOME for all the sacrifices i made for u 

alone together - fall out boy // a daydream away - all time low // r u mine? - arctic monkeys // first date - blink 182 // i bet you look good on the dancefloor - arctic monkeys // if these sheets were states - all time low // you had me at hello - a day to remember // everything i ask for - the maine // josie - blink 182 // goodnight moon - go radio // skyway avenue - we the kings // still into you - paramore // with me - sum 41 // stay with me - you me at six // kids in love - mayday parade
