but i couldn't find the author

Никогда такого не было, и вот опять (не было pronounced as one word with the stress on не) – ‘It has never been like this and now it is exactly the same again’, a famous quote by a Russian politician Viktor Chernomyrdin (that guy has some pretty ridiculous quotes, most of them are untranslatable, though)

To Ficwriters With Love

I personally think all fanfiction writers are just AWESOME and great and just wow… But there are some that catch my eye more than others

So, instead of recommending fics, I shall recommend you fic writers that are just the absolute best

impolitecanadian @impolitecanadian I always love it when writers give more personal author notes and reply to your comments

princedeadend  @princedeadend I just personally consider this fic awesome and so that extends to the author

Watermelonsmellinfellon @helly-watermelonsmellinfellon If you write 208 fics and they are all awesome (at least the ones I’ve read), you are bound to be awesome and just… woah… thank you?

PuppetMaster55 Black to Blue is just so good and getting an update of it (that come reasonably often) has always brightened my day so the author just stuck to my mind, I don’t need to read further than the author name before I already recognize the fic I’ve gotten an update email from, so thank youuu for creating that awesome fic (and some more)

MilkTeaMiku @milkteamiku 97 fics and the 10 fics I’ve read are pretty much like masterpieces so, yeah, they are awesome and I love love looove how all of their fics’ word counts are round numbers and they reply to comments and all that so personally, I think milkteamiku is the perfect author and I’m not completely convinced they aren’t an angel or something like that

surveycorpsjean @zanimez Kudos to you, you are great and I love your fics

IronScript A sweetheart, an astounding person and so strong, I thank you for your fast updates and for the fact that you are so dedicated to your readers even when you’re having a hard time.

Richonne Fic Rec...

This beautiful, one-shot Richonne fic has me still in awe! I mean, the details and the imagery are perfection!!!

It’s called “just put your skin, baby, on my skin” written by wrappedinrosegold and here’s the link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12506400/1/just-put-your-skin-baby-on-my-skin

Seriously y’all, read it and leave this amazing author a review!

WASSUP BOOK FANS,

I’ve spent the last 3ish years collecting hardback copies of my favourite books (or, slightly more truthfully, buying any copy of my favourite books that I find in charity shops because I don’t want them to feel unwanted), SO I now have ALL MY FAVOURITE BOOKS IN HARDBACK AND PAPERBACK, and my parents, whose house is Home Of Books, are packing up and moving to Ireland so I’m getting a storage unit/trying to downsize somewhat, and I was wondering if I did a BOOK GIVEAWAY of all the SPARE COPIES I own of my FAVES, would you guys fancy it?

tl;dr considering doing a book giveaway of my faves, whaddya think

Dea’s 2015 Haikyuu!! ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE FIC REC LIST

I saw @downmoonwrites made a small list of fics she liked and wanted to try it, too. I failed in containing myself…
Read more runner ups in my other lists: RAREPAIRS, PWP
Seriously. Do it. They’re all great. Coosing favourites is SO HARD ALREADY

Against All Odds by @sharkbaitsekki (with Oikawa, Kuroo, Bokuto, Daichi, Suga, Iwaizumi, T-rated)

Being a young parent is not easy, and newly-single fathers Daichi, Oikawa, Bokuto and Kuroo come to learn this the hard way through the daily challenges of raising children on their own. However, all is not hopeless, and when the four of them meet in a support group program, they will come to learn that together, they can get through anything, and fight despite the odds stacked against them.
A mostly light-hearted story about how even single parenthood is just another bump in the road if you have the right people around you to pick you up when you fall.

This fic changed my life. Literally. Go read it.

Below Destiny by volleyball_crow (with Ennoshita and Karasuno, G)

The one in which Daichi tries to ambush Ennoshita to give him a suitably emotional speech about the joys of captainship, and Ennoshita will have absolutely none of it, definitely not, not even if you payed me, thank you very much.

If there is one fic I want EVERYONE to read, it is this one. This is a masterpiece, incredibly thought out and characterized. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Philos series by @crollalanzaa (Iwaoi, G-M)

I am finally reading reading the book that has partly inspired this and can say with absolute certainty that this is an amazing collection of writing and I adore it.

(you are) here, there, everywhere (Ennoaka, T)

“Oh,” Konoha says suddenly, staring up at the ceiling with Akaashi like he might find answers there, “is this about your boyfriend?”
“He’s not my boyfriend,” Akaashi replies on autopilot.
“You kids are so technical these days,” Konoha says, as though he is not a mere one year older than Akaashi. “He’s basically your boyfriend. You guys watch movies together every other week and message each other on LINE in between.”
“As friends,” Akaashi corrects.
“As friends,” Konoha mocks.

Very relatable, adorable and cute. One of my absolute all-time favourites.

il mio ragazzo falso by @karasunovolleygays (Bokuaka, T)

With his grandparents’ fiftieth wedding anniversary looming fast and large, Akaashi finds himself urged to bring a date and not quite to the point where his family knows that said date will not be of the female variety.
At some point, he has to decide which will be the least frightening prospect — braving coming out to his family or endure Operation: Find Keiji A Girlfriend 2k15.
And why is the only person he can think of to drag along to this thing his overly-spirited volleyball captain?

One of the reasons I can never ever get enough of fake dating fics. Too good. Also I won’t get Bokuto crooning Disney songs out of my head. Forever ingrained…

Happy copy of Eden by @veto-power-over-fanworks (Kurotsukki, T)

Tsukishima Kei’s summer-break included an improvised trip, booze, seafood, the messiest soundtrack ever, too many texted conversations with Tanaka and Yamaguchi, embarrassing amounts of pining, a new word and one relevant question. Also, what might have been attempts to convince him of the power of friendship.

Best Tsukki characterization I’ve seen. Great soundtrack and even better OCs!

Stop My Bones From Wondering by @cerasi-nalamine (Asanoya, T)

After graduation, Asahi hides from the world and needs help from a few sources to find his way back.

Incredible story and charactreization. Stunning!

Like Perennials by @companions (Iwaoi, T)

“I figured it out about a month before graduation.”
When Oikawa explains this, they are sitting together in a boat in the middle of Lake Pichola, India, hiding at the end of the fourteenth century with no one to bother them. Hajime sifts his hand through the water to cool his face while Oikawa pauses to collect himself, sights fixed on the royal blue of an emerging night sky. He holds two fingers up to the yellowed moon, pinches it into forced perspective, and palms it completely to force the light out of his eye. At the view, he smiles like he’s defeated all the knowing gods, the fates and their fickle futures, and humbles himself from the stratosphere.
“You know the story, Iwa-chan,” Oikawa tells him, back on earth. “Boy jumps to Miyagi in attempt to run away. It is raining, when he meets another, and they are both five years old. Neither of them can decide if he is from years past, or years to come. Hell, he could be a monster, for all they know.”

Fuck, this is well thought out. Breathtaking storytelling. I bought art for this fic because I loved it so much. Read all the other fics of this series, too!

another sunny day by musicalitea (fukurodani gen, T)

Fukurodani loses at Nationals. No one on the team handles it very well.
Konoha is no exception.

Heartwrenching. This fic set my bar for great fanfic higher. AGAIN.

The Laws of Gravity by Kittywu (kurotsukki, G)

In which Kuroo and Tsukishima go on a road trip together, in which they travel through half of Europe in Kuroo’s old Toyota and in which they of course end up falling in love.

I cried so hard. This is soo good and develops so amazingly!

Half Asleep / Wide Awake by @citrusfluegel (Kurodai, E)

“Y’know why she broke up with me?”
“Cause she realised she could never be good enough for you?”
Daichi blew air through his nose. “Because I’m still living with my ex.”
“I’m not your ex, I’m your best friend.”
“You’re both.”
In which Daichi wants change, Kuroo doesn’t want to lose his best friend, and life has never been kind to them.

So slow and captivating. Emotions galore!

Performance Anxiety by @mysecretfanmoments (Kuroken, E)

Kuroo lets his perfectionism get in the way of exploring the more physical side of his relationship with Kenma; Kenma decides to take matters into his own hands.

Yes, I know everyone agrees that Val’s fics are a blessing and this is perfect, but that’s not gonna hinder me putting it on this list! Give me characters struggling and growing and communicating every day…

love me like you do by @yamazaki-sousukes (Bokuroo, E)

Kuroo and Bokuto realize they’re in love each other without ever having to say it.

Oh my god, the feelings. I melted to the floor. I don’t know how often I’ve reread this now, but it’s an unholy amount…

Constellation by @fukurokeiji (Kuroyaku)

The beach is quiet, except for at night.
Morisuke doesn’t move from it; he can’t bring himself to, lost in his own desolation and fury, because how dare he abandon him like this, after taking him away from his home. During the day, Morisuke only ventures far enough into the trees to gather fruit, biting into it and relishing the bitter taste of unripe juice on his tongue.

Oh my god this is so perfect. I love this fic so much I commissioned a gorgeous piece of art for it.

a kiss of smoke by @tivruskis (Bokuroaka, T)

Akaashi inhaled it quicker than before, closing his eyes again. He leaned forward, chasing the smoke out from Kuroo’s mouth, and then their lips were touching, just briefly before Akaashi broke away to exhale the remaining smoke.
Koutarou didn’t realize he’d made a sound until Kuroo looked over at him. “You okay, bro?” he asked, the teasing tone in his voice almost hidden by the roughness of it.

My first encounter with Bokuroaka and DAMN was it contagious. Favourite polyship ever.

jaywalkers series by Batman (Kurotsukki, Bokuaka, T)

A collection of stories the morals of which all amount to: if something can go wrong, it will. Also, if something can go right, it also will.
Alternatively, that one college AU where everyone fucks all the shit up.

THE UNI FEEL. I love it, also it’s hilarious!

Valhalla by @suggestivescribe (Iwaoi, M)

Oikawa is a Valkyrie, and Iwaizumi is the warrior who refuses to fall.

The first fic I ever recorded as a podfic for myself. I’m so in love with it, Scribe is a blessing!

The Beat of a Drum by Crollalanza (Keisae, T)

“She’ll breeze into your life just when you least expect it. Make sure you look up at the right time, huh!”
On the outside, Keishin Ukai has a decent life. He works hard, plays hard, and is relishing his role as Karasuno’s coach. The one niggle - his parents nagging him to find a wife - he can easily ignore, ‘cause between his work, the harvest, and training, Keishin has no time for a girlfriend.
Then she sashays into his life, and he’s not just thinking about volleyball and fava beans.

Oh god, this fic. Hurt me, healed me, made me feel. Simply amazing.

burning bright (OiKuroo, M)

The tale of how Kuroo Tetsurou invades and subsequently ruins Oikawa Tooru’s life with his larger-than-life fire magic and his terrible hair.
or
The elite Spring Leaf Academy for Talented Young Magicians has a pecking order that’s been carved out across twelve complicated years of blood, sweat, and charisma. Tooru is more than a little stressed when the arrival of the famous Kuroo Tetsurou threatens to change everything.

A very new addition, author will be revealed tomorrow! I love love love the worldbuilding and character interactions… this is dreamy <3


RUNNER UPs:

just can’t get enough by cultvalue (Bokuroo, T)

Throughout their years together—first as friends, then as boyfriends—they’ve exchanged “I love you"s plenty of times, but never like this, never so meaningfully.

This is short but incredibly full of feeling. Makes my heart warm every time I read it.

rechording by @hananapeel (Ennofuta, T)

ennoshita’s a film student, futakuchi needs a music video, and hearts are plucked like guitar strings.

So cute and romantic!

yours is the light by @downmoonwrites (Oisuga, M)

He dreamed the first night Suga crawled into bed with him, hazy, vague ideas of temples and conversations with himself, the touch of a lover. He’d forgotten about it, until now, and the little details come flooding back, like he’s dreaming it all over again, and with such clarity he could almost reach out and pull a wisp out of his mind.
or-
Tooru’s always loved the moon.

Such poetic writing, truly unique! Passionate and subtle at the same time aaahhhhhhhh

if it works by @arsenicjay (bokuroo, T)

“Do you think that’s progress?” Akaashi asks. He can’t help the dubious note in his voice.
“They get so caught up in each other that they forget everyone else,” Kenma points out, without bothering to look up. Just continues tap tap tapping on his PSP. “Not that they realise.”
“I suppose not,” Akaashi says, after a moment. He glances over at Kenma. “This is turning out harder than we thought.”
There’s an odd tension between Bokuto and Kuroo, one that everyone seems to be able to pick up on. Everyone of course, except for themselves.

This is fucking hilarious and so well characterized. A dream.

Ask a Stupid Question by @darkmagicalgirlwrites (with the future captains, G)

Captains Futakuchi, Ennoshita, Yahaba, and Shirabu are interviewed for a TV spot. Futakuchi has a little too much fun.

Comedic genius. I read this on the floor now because I literally fell twice off my chair before when reading it.


HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

THANK YOU FOR THIS AMAZING YEAR OF MAKING FRIENDS, LOOKING AT BEAUTIFUL ART AND READING INCREDIBLE FANFIC!

-
Derek’s only comfort over the past few years has been a novel written by his favorite author. When he decides to teach it at an entry level university course he doesn’t expect a fiery student to disagree with everything he says…

Soulmate AU: World where you have your soulmate’s name on your wrist, right?

They end up going to England for college and realise that the city of London was where they were meant to live to be happy. 

bekadmfb  asked:

*lays a single, deep red rose on the desk* I couldn't find black, I hope that's alright. As a thank you for answering my questions! I was wondering, is The Author from Danger in Fiction one of Mark's figments? Or was that simply Mark? Or... could it have possibly been you?

Dark swept the rose into his fingers in one simple motion, ignoring the fact that its thorns were stabbing into the thin and weak surface of his skin, causing droplets of the strange black ooze to drip down his fingers.

“Thank you, lovely. The entirety of Danger in Fiction was supposed to be regarding how initial character development can cause for characters you read about to begin feeling too real when implemented in real life. How their choices would change if you really allowed them to stay away from the typical cookie cutter scenario. But it all seemed too… boring to me. The very idea of forcing a character away from cookie cutting all felt so… cookie cutter. I needed to step in, don’t you see?”

He growled in rememberance.

“They needed me to make that scene truly special. And he didn’t much deny me either. He knew of my intelligence then, he knew of my creative spark. I turned that bland and monotonous sob story into something chilling, something exciting, something memorable. I gave Mark the extra boost of a psychotic, violent, but oddly seductive undertone that made it hard, very hard to forget such a roll.”

Omg I just read the most satisfying rosvolio one-shot over on ao3. I want to drown in it.

It’s second person POV which I normally hate but it’s so poetic, and so focused on Benvolio’s loneliness and motivations I want to cry.

Magazine for Intermediate Russian Learners

Hello! For those of you studying Russian, Мурзилка is a great children’s magazine (and the longest running children’s magazine in the world) that is very helpful. It includes short stories, riddles, comics, author spotlights, crafts, crossword puzzles, and cultural notes. 

I love the copies I own, but if you can’t get a hold of one, there is also an app for them. [iOS] [Android] Overall, I love the magazine and find it useful for those that want to improve their reading skills.

ecstasykid-deactivated20161227  asked:

Is there a good movie about the day of the assassination of franz ferdinand? I mean like, not the motivations or causes or what happened after or the politics behind it, just about the day--which was ridiculous, just like, sandwiches

Listen!! Friend!!!! trust me my pal if there was a movie entirely dedicated to the comical aspects of the assassination of archduke franz ferdinand I would be right there in the front row. i’d be in the director’s seat and behind the camera and alternating through every acting role and working the lights and catering the whole dang production. I’d Be There.

But unfortunately my internet trawling has yet to unearth such a gem, which isn’t necessarily to say that it doesn’t exist. As far as I’m aware, though, we’re shit out of luck. Most movies you’ll find concerning the subject, as I’m sure you’ve realized, only deal with it in relation to how it sparked the events of World War 1 (fascinating stuff, of course, but the Great War wasn’t, unfortunately, hilariously botched.)

anonymous asked:

Hi there! I love your blog and really appreciate all the wonderful fics you rec/have written! I was wondering if you had any fics that featured Harry and Draco having a secret relationship as the trope? (Sorry if this has already been asked, I couldn't find it anywhere on your blog already.) Thanks in advance!!

Summary:

AU in which Marvel Comics writer Zayn Malik has a phobia of water so intense he can’t even get in a bath. Of course, he’s willing to reconsider that statement on the condition that ridiculously attractive Marine Biologist Liam Payne is in the bath with him. Which probably won’t happen. They may have been exchanging increasingly flirty emails for months, and Zayn might be half way in love with him and he may have named the main character in his new comic series after him but that doesn’t mean anything. They’ve never met and they’re not going to.

That is, until his meddling agent Niall organizes a ‘research’ trip for he and Zayn to go on a deep sea expedition with Liam and his deranged scientist colleagues Harry and Louis. Zayn thought he couldn’t possibly be more afraid of the ocean.

He was wrong.
