can we learn your story in the sequel

Sakura Haruno Fic Recommendations

I’m an admitted serial Sakura shipper. If there’s a single man in Konoha (or outside of it), you can almost bet I’ll find a way to somehow ship them. But honestly, even if I don’t necessarily ship them, I may find the story beautiful and put it here for others who ship them. Most are in the Naruto-verse but will be stated otherwise if not. 

Most, if not all, are Rated M. So be warned that almost all of them contain smut/adult content of some kind. I’m trying to branch out and read things that don’t contain smut but it’s a little challenging. I like steamy reads. 

Happy Reading!

Watch Me Drown - Chapter 6

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, to everyone that has been following this story. I can tell you for a fact that this sequel would not exist without the overwhelming support you fans have been giving me, and it wouldn’t have been nearly as good without your feedback and comments as we go along. I have never done anything like this, such a long plot, before and you all have made the experience so amazing. I have learned so much and my gratitude to you knows no bounds. 

I wanted to move the A-story (the main plot) faster than this, but these two still have a lot to work out in their B-story so here’s an 8700 word scene where Ivar and Sigrunn never quite stop touching each other ;)

Spamano Fanfic Recs

I know there are so many Spamano rec lists out there, but I felt like adding another to it.

Most of these are names by some pretty well-known fanfic authors, so they don’t need me to further recommend them. Still, I felt like putting a list together for anyone who just hasn’t gotten around to all of these yet, and also as a point of reference to myself.

So…where to begin?

theuglywolf  asked:

I really don't like the whole EU not being canon...I still count it all as canon though. What do you think?

Personally, I understand why the EU is no longer canon and I think that was really the only realistic way they could go.  That said, I understand it’s very tough for a lot of fans to make peace with that decision. 

And I think you have the exact right attitude - count whatever you want as canon! Of course the filmmakers need to have a very black and white definition of canon, but we as fans don’t.  That’s part of the fun of fandom!  We can pick and choose what we like.

That’s where their rebranding of the EU as “Legends” is particularly inspired.  I studied Ancient Greece in college as my major, and Greek mythology is filled with amazing stories and heroes.  But, since the stories are so old, there are many variations.  For example, the god Dionysius is the son of Zeus and Semele in some versions of his story, but the son Zeus and Persephone in others.  The story of Medea has many variations - in some she kills her children by accident, in some she kills them deliberately, and in some they are killed by the townspeople.  When studying these stories, you read them all and then kind of decide for yourself which version you consider the “truth.”

And I see it similarly for Star Wars now.  These are legendary stories that  took place “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.” Over the years, there are going to be different versions.  In some versions, Luke Skywalker founded a Jedi Academy, married a woman named Mara Jade, and had a son.  In another version we’ll get to see next year, something entirely different will probably happen to him. 

Learn all the versions of Luke’s story and then chose the one that you want to be canon for yourself.  The EU isn’t going away - we’re just adding the sequel movies.  And what that means is we will have options. If you don’t like parts of the EU (and there are certainly parts I don’t), we’ll now have another alternative.  If you end up hating the sequels, you can always consider the EU your canon.  And of course, there is always fandom and fan fic for creating your own stories and your own versions of these legends! 

Apologies for the novel here!  But I very sincerely believe this and want to try and help any EU fans who are feeling down.  Star Wars is expanding, but we aren’t losing what came before!
