You need to find a cup with a wide brim that’s light in colour, find a wide saucer.

When you are finished drinking take the cup in your dominant hand and place your non-dominant handover the top of your cup. Turn the cup tree times in a clockwise direction. Pour any remaining water down the sink. Place the cup upside down on the saucer or a napkin and turn it clockwise three times, turn the cup over look for the leaves that have taken shapes. When you have finished your reading it is customary to turn your cup over, place your index finger on the base of your cup and make a wish
Meanings You can twist and turn the cup for new angles to find symbols in your cup, the closer the symbol is to the rim of the cup the sooner it will happen. the further down the longer it will take, tea reading can only predict up to a year. symbols at the bottom of your cup will take almost a whole year to take effect.

A Winter’s Tale by @justadram (96k, M, book canon compliant, future fic) The War of Three Dragons comes to the Vale, bringing Jon Snow and Sansa Stark together once more.
A nice longer fic you can sink your teeth into. (I read so many fics where I’m like … this is so great … but what if it was 50k longer?) I especially like Sansa coming to terms with not going home and the roles other characters play in the story (especially Jaime and Asha). Sadly lacking in other Stark sibs (my perennially unfulfilled desire) but at least there’s hope for reunion in the future. Also: there needs to be more Sam and Sansa being friends in the world. So much more.
All the Way to the Moon by @misshoneywheeler (5k, E, book canon compliant, future fic) The Dragon Queen had been gracious. Sansa would keep
her name and her home. Her children would grow in Winterfell as Starks,
just as she once had. Sansa had forced herself to thank the Queen, her
steady tone betraying none of the bitterness that curled beneath her
tongue. That she should be a brood mare to ensure succession sat uneasy,
no matter that it was a life she most likely would have sought for
herself, more or less, given time and a husband of her choosing. That was not the bargain, though. Jon Snow was the bargain.
Hot smut, but also some delightful identity issues re: Alayne. One of my faves is Sansa trying to manipulate Jon and Jon just going along with it instead of being tricked. I don’t know why I like that so much, but this is definitely a good example.
A really enjoyable example of the “Dany makes them marry” trope. Is this the trope progenitor? IDK, but it seems like an early example.
break me like a promise by honey_wheeler (5k, E, book canon compliant, future fic) “Seems we are siblings after all,” Jon had said, his voice forcibly
light, as if to make the words a jape. Perhaps to soften the news, or
diminish the realness of it. Perhaps because he had as much difficulty
believing it as she, having known himself a Targaryen near as long as
he’d thought himself a Stark bastard. And they had been married such a
short time; it was too fast to be real, too sudden to seem anything but a
The incest angst fic of my dreams. You know how a lot of fics do the cousin reveal and they’re like “oh phew, thank the gods, I thought I was banging my brother”? This is the opposite of that. Hot and sad at the same time. Contains A+ sexual crying.
Broken Pieces by @justadram (7k, M, book canon compliant, future fic) Jon is good and kind, but he wants things from Sansa she doesn’t know whether she can give.
Almost more of a Sansa character piece than anything else. I love stories dealing with Sansa’s identity issues and this delivers.
Crossing Flatlands to You by @maybetwice (6k, M, book canon compliant, future fic) It takes them years to get it right, for the right reasons, at the right time. Five reasons Sansa had to seduce Jon, and the one reason he had to seduce her.
If for no other reason than a change of pace, it’s really good to read fics where they fall in love before marrying, and I really dig this one. Very tight and focused writing. Quite a bit less smut than you’d think from the summary. (Not a criticism; just FYI.)
Major tearjerker. Prepare yourself. And heed the warning.
Gods, Let Me Try by @justadram (3k, E, book canon compliant, future fic) Jon told Sansa to remain in his tent for her own safety, but she continually frustrates his attempts to protect her.
I am perpetually in need of more angry sex for this ship (there’s so little, y’all. so little). This is still not quite enough, but it does scratch that itch somewhat. Jon and Sansa arguing is everything to me.
Expect lovely evocative writing (seriously, ugh, to a truly unfair degree), LF being a creep, Jon and Sansa having an increasingly strained relationship despite their growing attraction (”Tell Baelish to get you your fucking crown,” be still my heart), political machinations, and a nice bevy of side characters, including Arya and some well-drawn supporting original characters. It also gave me a taste for epistolary fic for this ship, a thirst that goes as yet unquenched.
Moon Cycles by caesia (7k, M, book canon compliant, future fic) Sansa receives a visitor to the Eyrie who reminds her of her past, but his past is complicated too.
I honestly think this might be my favorite? And I’m not totally sure why? Like, the premise is literally just that post-resurrection Jon is a werewolf. You’d think that might be dumb, or at least cracky if played tongue-in-cheek, but it’s actually really melancholy and bittersweet, especially the second fic.
Snow Kisses by caesia (3k, M, book canon compliant, future fic) The sky sends icy kisses falling against her cheeks, but Jon’s kiss still burns on her lips.
The little details of everyday life bring this fic to life.
True North by lit_chick08 (6k, M, book canon compliant, future fic) It is official business that brings Jon Snow to Winterfell. It is personal business that damns him.
Normally infidelity is a huge turn-off for me, and yeah part of me was a little :| at first, but the things to like about this fic just overwhelmed all that. For some reason I also have a huge “Sansa has a kid (or two) out of wedlock” kink, so that probably helps. A killer ending line, also.
Unmade by @misshoneywheeler (2k, M, book canon compliant, future fic) Jon has a vague memory of Sansa picking a nosegay of those blue flowers,
smelling them deeply before holding them out for him to do the same.
SEX POLLEN, MY FRIENDS. Strangely innocent, sweet sex pollen that is all the more hot for those aspects alongside the dubious consent. Also, frottage.
So I’m all about the “stone by stone” “Ned/Cat 2.0″ marriage fics, but a lot of times it’s either focused on the very beginnings of the relationship (the wedding and first night, usually), or on the end where they finally realize their feelings and have super hot sex. No shade intended, I like all flavors of this trope, but sometimes you want more of the actual “stones” themselves in between–the difficulties, the disagreements, the miscommunications, the compromises, etc. This is a story about conflict and I really dig how this is ambiguous and open instead of resolving everything neatly.
Trope prompt list: arranged marriage for Rumbelle. ;)
Ooooh. This is one of my favorite trope and one I’ve never been able to plot, because Rumple always slips away from such deals. But since it was asked, I guess we’d start with that?
Twenty years ago…
Ogres attack Avonlea. As a last resource, the king decides to ask for the Dark One’s help and sends him a letter offering their most precious treasure in exchange for his power: their gold.
Rumpelstiltskin, being the kind of man who cannot let a chance to see a nobleman beg go unremarked, presents himself at the Avonlea castle and proceeds to merrily mock them for daring to offer gold to the spinner of gold. But since he is a merciful soul… deep down… (giggly sniggers), he has decided to give them a chance. Give him a good reason for the Dark One to exert himself in their favor, and - cue deep bow - he will be glad to help them.
Any reason at all.
Any? At all?
Enter the lady of the land.
“The history books claim you drove the ogres away from the Marchlands.”
Rumpelstiltskin scoffs, never liking the reminder of those days. “The stories also claim I eat children for dinner.” A glance down to the lady’s growing belly. “Are you offering?”
Every man in the room steps forward - starting with the lady’s husband - but she raises a hand to stop them.
“Colette,” the king mutters, nerves on an edge.
She squares her shoulders and pretends a dozen grown men didn’t just almost commit suicide. “I said history books, sir. Not nursery tales to scare the little ones into good behavior.”
