Do you have a list of favorite gradence fics you think everyone should read?
(only E rated b/c im trash) newer things not on that list that I made ages ago and still like/re-read are (me going through the tag by date posted to find my faves lol also things not mentioned on other lists- its long, strap in). mostly completed works, though i cheated a few times.
hold on, enjoy the ride - first sex pollen AU i ever saw, from the OG discord chat group discussions. desperate to be fucked graves is my fave thing ok? where are the other sex pollen/fuckordie fics???
roche limit - another first. first omega!graves and alpha!credence and the day it posted and i saw 19k completed i think i swooned. i can call myself lucky enough to know the lovely author @rospeaks and we’re geographically close enough to hang out. its amazing.
shadow dreams (against my skin) - a one shot by the author of other peoples poetry, which i still havent read because its 11/12 and its been a while so, ergo, im sad but grateful we have this one thing.
boy we’re gold - if you like modern au’s and feminization, you’ll love this. technically this part is complete but overall its part of a series.
the night before - omg here i am reccing all this stuff and not mentioning its got somnophilia in it oops. this is basically a sweet soft version of my all time fave WIP sin ‘graves goes to hell’
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
i’m a count, not a saint - COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO AU + INCEST ok. sorry. im just so happy someone wrote for one of my au ideas :’)
beautiful boy - ‘the man i warned you about is getting closer’ fics need to have their own classification as i love seer!graves i need more even though thats not at all what this fic is lmao, its pure smut.
unfortunately i cannot offer any specific recs from the fics in the anonymous challenge without giving anything away and/or my commentary relies on knowing the author sooo, it’ll be a while til i can, but for now, i recommend the whole challenge collection.
this list too, its old but there’s a shit ton of things on there, some may be wip’s.
im very picky about what i read, hence its mostly E and/or complete. i try not to read too many WIP’s because the sheer amount that havent been updated in 6+ months are too fucking sad to consider. hint: its a lot.
Rereading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: Chapter Eleven - Hermione’s Helping Hand
this chapter title has got me thinking all kinds of things. and none of them are appropriate.
- so basically the trio are a bunch of little shits and havent even gone to go say HELLO to hagrid after that swerved his care of magical creatures class. im so disappointed.
“I hate not talking to Hagrid,” said Hermione, looking upset.
ME AND YOU BOTH KID
“Oh, come on, Harry,” said Hermione, suddenly impatient. “It’s not Quidditch that’s popular, it’s you! You’ve never been more interesting, and frankly, you’ve never been more fanciable.” Ron gagged on a large piece of kipper.
“You can still see the marks on the back of your hand where that evil woman made you write with your own blood, but you stuck to your story anyway…” “You can still see where those brains got a hold of me in the Ministry, look,” said Ron, shaking back his sleeves.
“And it doesn’t hurt that you’ve grown about a foot over the summer either,” Hermione finished, ignoring Ron. “I’m tall,” said Ron inconsequentially.
OH RON im sorry but if this aint the cutest shit
Harry had received no mail since the start of term; his only regular corespondent was now dead and although he had hoped that Lupin might write occasionally, he had so far been disappointed.
jesus harry. youre breaking my heart.
- STAN SHUNPIKE IS A DEATH EATER YALL well not really but still
- GUYS the hormones in this chapter are off the charts. i cant even quote it all but like lavender is thirsty af, hermione is salty af, and ron is just stupid.
- ron is described as being a ‘delicate shade of green’ before his quidditch try out and its adorable
- cormac mclaggen is the biggest douche. as if anyone didnt already know this
After a few seconds, Buckbeak sank into a bow too. “How are you?” Harry asked him in a low voice, moving forward to stroke the feathery head. “Missing him? But you’re okay here with Hagrid, aren’t you?”
- ok hagrid is really upset at the trio and like i dont blame him but, HIM BEING UPSET IS MAKING HERMIONE UPSET TOO. I DONT LIKE MY FAVES BEING SAD
- sidenote aragog is dying oh well
- ron is pissed that slughorn isn’t inviting him to the parties but like, really those chapters are hella boring, youre not missing anything kid
-aaaaaaand as per usual, snape is an ass and harry has detention tonight!
WELP if you liked this, follow me for more chapters!

Hey I saw a couple posts back you mentioned you like Zatch/Gash Bell! Would you be willing to do a little doodle of him sometime, maybe as a silly warmup? I don't have a lot of friends who know of/cared for the series so it's a big low key fave of mine. ;v;
I WAS SO SURE I PUT THIS IN MY QUEUE! Well, I guess I’ll just post it real quick before bed, most tumblr users are awake at midnight anyway~
It really is just a little warm-up but I hope you like it anyway! I threw in Kiyomaro because It makes me sad to see one without the other QuQ
Jesse decides to take Hanzo in a date by the sea. Hanzo loves the sea, it’s calming, beautiful and blue, his favorite color. Jesse loves the smile on his boyfriend’s face when he sees the sea. And it’s by the sea he decides to take the next step.
My pal its your birthday so obviously HAPPY BIRTHDAY I HOPE YOU HAVE THE BEST DAY. You and joshua are my otp and your there when i freak out over school so thanks for being the best pal and WRITING SO WELL YOUR HONESTLY MY FAVE WRITER AND YOU MAKE ME CRY
Please it loads of cake for me and give my boi some cuddles
what is ur absoloute fav ziam moment ? have a good day
Now if I was being smart then I would say simply ‘the moment they met’ but I’m not so…well. 1 moment? Nope, nu-uh, how can I choose between so many amazing moments? Therefore this post contains outrageous cheating and a very low key final moment.
So the things I’ve discounted are as follows:
10. The time Liam and Zayn were ridiculously charming and polite with the pregnant lady and then proceeded to name their future children and Zayn’s face as Liam talks about Taylor being the name for his first born and his face is all ‘Yeah we’ll talk about THAT after the interview babe cos NO WAY’ were just so adorable and Louis had to go in there at 4.42 onwards and join the interview.
9. Zayn’s reaction to Liam doing the walrus impression. Have you ever seen anything as adorable? I mean god, i hate this.
8. The first 25 seconds of this interview and Liam’s reaction to Zayn and Louis completely noticing and well agreed Louis. Ughhhh.
Basically - Harry says something to Zayn related to Liam and Zayn gestures at Liam’s arse then Zayn says to Louis what looks like ‘he’s got a wet bottom’ or possibly ‘patch’ and then Louis says something and then Zourry have a laugh and basically it ends up with Zayn going and lifting up the bandana to have a look and Harry and Louis’ reactions are so funny and Zayn’s and then Zayn tells Liam and oh just watch okay.
6. Ziam at the NRJs
For the top 5 onwards to number 1 we’re going under the cut cos I get really cheaty now.
MOVIE : NOT MOVIE PEOPLE : THOMAS BRODIE SANGSTER X READER RATING : SMUT AND LOTS OF IT WRITER : WE AND MY IDEA
note : luke is the name of your boyfriend not sure why just the name i came up with at the time
i was walking home from my job i only work five minutes walk down the road from the flat i share with my boyfriend, luke as i get to our apartment block i see he’s already home as his car a range rover TD6 vogue is in the usual place i don’t have a car i don’t mind walking to town for work and shopping anything else luke does i slowly but surely get to our apartment on the 13th floor and stand just about to unlock the door when i hear the voice of a woman giggling and the voice of luke i slowly open the door and i can definitely hear voices more clearly
“come on mary” luke says
“i don't know if we should today, y/n could be home soon” the female voice replies
“oh who cares about her” luke replies i then walk further into our apartment to see our bedroom door is open and lights coming from it i walk to it silently and look through the opening to see some girl i don't know sat on our bed in her underwear and luke sat just beside her the two of them snogging looking like any second about to have sex i can feel the tears welling up in my eyes but i dont want to burst in and make a scene so i just go to the front door again and take his car keys and leave without making at sound i run down all 13 floors to get to the ground floor i then collapse and start crying my eyes out against the wall i don't know what to do i dont even have anywhere to go,
scratch that i do have somewhere to go i then storm out the apartment block and get in his car still crying and start driving to the only place i know i can go i get my phone and put it on the dashboard and call up my best friend thomas i know he’s back from work at the moment as i was going to see him tomorrow anyway after three rings he answers
“hey love” he says with his always sweet sounding voice
“hey tommy, i have to ask a favour” i reply still crying
“sure what” he asks sound a bit concerned
“can i come and stay with you tonight something’s happened with me and luke” i say crying my eyes out again
“course you walking or driving” he asks
“driving i stole his car” i reply
“quite the criminal aren't you love its fine i'll open on the the garage doors and you can park the car there” he says
“thanks tommy see you in a sec” i say
“see you love” he replies before hanging up i then just keep driving luckily thomas doesnt live that far away from me now i know what you're thinking how the hell do i know him simple really he was my next door neighbor growing up and i've always been friends with him i have even visited him on sets before when i get to his house its huge and he has opened one of the garage doors so i just park the car in the one that's open and get out with in seconds he’s there looking as he often does when i see him not really awake in skinny jeans and a light blue button shirt with sleeves rolled up to his elbows looking if in honest like a teenager but when doesnt he honestly he looks me up and down noticing im crying “what the bloody hell happened” he asks stepping closer to me looking very worried
i don't reply just burst out crying again he just takes me in his arms and hugs me tightly so im crying on his shoulder he moves his hand up and down my back to calm me down whispering calming sweet things in my ear as well till he pulls away from me as i stop crying and he takes me into the living room a large room with bookcases of games and films everywhere he sits me on the sofa then goes off into the kitchen i just sit trying to hold back my tears till he comes back with a mug of something and puts it on the table in front of me “hot chocolate, the only truly good drink for sadness” he says making me laugh before i drink some noticing its (whatever you fave sort of hot chocolate is)
“seriously” i ask
“yeah, its always here for if this was gonna happen…..on that not what exactly has happened” he asks carefully
“i got home and found luke in the arms of some girl called mary” i say “they were sat on the bed close to snogging each others faces of when i got there and i overheard him say he didn't care if i was gonna be home he was too wrapped up in her arms to care” i say starting to cry again but thomas just hugs me tightly again
“hey it’s okay, i bet that mary wasn't half as lovely as you” he says
“she looked pretty good from what i saw” i say still crying from what i sore though the door she was beautiful much prettier and thinner than me
“well i bet you're still better than her, and lukes and idiot if he cant see that, he must be blind to want to be fooling around with some other girl when he has you” he says to me
“awe you always know the right things to say” i reply hugging him even tighter
“its true thought hes an idiot to think any girl is better then you, i mean if i was your boyfriend i would be begging to get home to be with you i wouldn't even look at another girl if i had you” he says to me pulling away so he says it to my face
“awe thank you tommy, but no one has me now luke can go fuck himself for all i care, he can go have a threesum with my boss and the queen of england and i still wouldn't care” i say trying to be all brave and stuff even though i know i don't have to be with thomas
“what you gonna do with his car though” thomas asks
“i dont know maybe dump it in a ditch and text him directions to the ditch i left it in” i say drinking some more hot chocolate
“well if you want i have an idea” he says getting up and taking my hand dragging me back to the garage when we get there he looks around some benches and stuff he has for working on cars and bikes and gives me a huge bit f metal no clue what its for in car terms he then gets something similar “Lets Destroy It” he says
“what” i ask
“lets destroy it wreck it then dump it in a ditch on fire and tell him he wants his car its on fire at where ever we dump it” he says making me laugh
“are you sure” i ask
“sure just don't hit me in your anger” he says
“i wont” i say fluffing his hair out its normal place something he hates me doing but because he hates it that i do it at any opportunity
“Y/N” he complains like a child “you're worse then ava for doing that” he says
“i know well ava got it from me” i smirk walking to the side of the car and hitting the mirror right off well that felt good so i continued hitting the car smashing various things and thomas has joined me now both of us destroying his car till these not much on the outside not yet destroyed so i yell stop and sit on the bonnet a bit not completely wrecked and thomas sits beside me “you all don't destroying” he asks
“for a sec” i say a bit tired after destroying his car to this extent “did you mean that” i ask him
“mean what” he asks
“if you were my boyfriend you wouldn't do anything like that to me” i ask
“i swear by that” he says
“i bet your girlfriend wont be happy with that, then again she doesnt like me very much does she old isabel she don't much like me, thats gonna be another argument i can see when she finds out you have allowed me to stay here and you're helping me wreck my ex’s car” i say
“well i imagine she wouldn't but it doesnt involve isabel she’s my ex now” he answers
“when did that happen tommy and why wasn’t i informed” i ask
“happened three weeks back y/n and you went informed simply because you were working when it happened and i didn't want to bother you” he says
“it wouldn't have been a bother tommy, i like to know these things what happened” i ask
“she left me because she doesnt like you” he says quietly
“what” i ask
“she left me because she doesnt like you” he repeats
“what the hell thats stupid im your bestfriend what the hell does it matter if she doesnt like me if she loves you” i ask
“loved me past tense y/n if she loved me, she doesnt like the fact i have a friend that i constantly talk to thats a girl she doesnt like she just assumes i would cheat on her at any moment” he says
“awe poor you” i say putting my arm around him “well what do you need girlfriends for tommy we're two of a kind” i say laying back on the bonnet
“yeah we are just two kids that can't hold down lovers” he laughs laying beside me
“yeah we are, but if i was your girlfriend i would care who your friends are if there girls, boys, rodents or ghosts there your friends and if they make you happy it would make me happy to make sure you're happy” i say
“awe thanks love” he says turning to face me i just turn to face him two looking into his deep brown eyes a second but before i've really noticed we were both stareing at each other he leaned forward and kissed me a way i have never been kissed before a little kiss sparking butterflies, fireworks and all manner of lovely things as we moved our mouths in perfect sync with each other a while almost fully making out on the bonnet of my ex boyfriends car till we both pull away “wow” he says
“yeah wow” i reply
“why the hell did i wait this long to do that” he says
“i dont know why i waited so long either” i reply before we both re connect our lips with much more passion than before till we both pull away again “i just wanted to say” he says
“what” i ask
“this friendship of ours Lets Destroy It” he laughs
“better Lets Destroy It and taint my ex’s car” i giggle
“you are so a little criminal” he laughs at me
“and proud of it” i say as we both get of the bonnet and go into the back seats the second we both sit down we are making out again my arms around his neck his around my waist but slowly moving down to my thighs in response i begin to lay back and he just crawls on top of me fiddling with my skirt before returning to kissing me i quickly move my hands from around his neck to start undoing his shirt he moans into my mouth as i do till i completely take his shirt off of him the second i do he moves away from me and pulls my shirt of tossing it away into the front seats of the car before scanning me over with his eyes but i just pull him back to kissing me he then moves to start kissing my neck and i twist a hand in his hair as he sucks on a sweet spot on my neck and i moan as he does till his hands move to my skirt again and gently pull it off me completely adding it to the pile of our clothes on the front seats before scanning me again and reconnecting our lips and i move my hands down his chest feeling his toned chest the whole way down just pausing at the top of his jeans “what you waiting for love” he asks between kisses
“nothing” i reply letting my hand undo his jeans and pull them down slightly revealing his boxers before i gently palm him and he moans into my mouth moving his hands to my chest feeling me even though my bra making me moan as well till i let my curious hand slip under the waistband of his boxers taking hold of him in my hand “ah fucking hell” he says in response before undoing my bra and removing it with his teeth making me laugh before he reconnects our lips yet continuing all the way down my chest to the bottom of my stomach just above my knickers before i grip his hair pulling his lips back to mine and use my other hand to completely remove his trousers and boxers leaving him naked in front of me i can't help but sit there gobsmacked i have never seen him naked before, well i say never once after the last day of school all our friends went skinny dipping in the dark lake and we hwee amongst them but it wasn't for long and dark at the time i wasn't really paying much attention but now i am “what” he asks
“nothing just wow” i say making him laugh before he slips his hand in my knickers and slips them off throwing them with the rest of my clothes “i could say the same to you” he says making me laugh “now are you sure” he asks me
“fucking positive tommy” i giggle he just nods before kissing me again and slowly but surely pushing into me filling me up completely almost making me scream there and then before he begins thrusting into me with as much force as possible both of us screaming and shouting for a while till i can feel my climax in the pit of my stomach and i know he’s not far off either by the noises he’s making and the fact his thrusts have gotten much slower and sloppier till i climax screaming his name at the top of my voice we are so lucky he doesnt have neighbours with in seconds he comes into me mixing our juices together and he collapses on top of me “you think we destroyed our friendship now” he asks between his breaths
“yeah thats gone” i laugh
“what about the car” he asks
“one more thing” i say sitting up pushing him off me and moving into the front seat and he sits in the other seat i get my bag from the footwell and get a pack of cigarettes as both me and thomas smoke i take one and bass the pack to him as i get my lighter and light mine and pass him the lighter as he gives me back the pack and we both sit naked and have a smoke making the car smell of both sex and smoke “well that was brilliant in my opinion” he says
“right back at you tommy” i smirk
“so what is this” he asks
“well i don't know, whatever we both want i guess” i reply
“how about boyfriend and girlfriend” he asks
“fine with me” i answer
“how about date for dinner tomorrow night” he asks
“fine with me” i answer
“and how about you pack your stuff at lukes and come here” he asks
“fine with me” i answer leaning over to kiss him again we both then finish our smoke and get dressed again and get out the car “tomorrow we drive it into a ditch and text him where it is and while he’s out we pack your stuff up okay” he says
“okay” i reply letting him wrap his arm around me and lead me to his room i just sleep in my underwear as i don't have any other option.
when we both get up we dress and take the car out i drive the car even though its destroyed and thomas follows me in his car so we can go to lukes and get my stuff when i find a long deserted road quiet far away and stop the car by the side of the road right next to a ditch i get out the car and thomas gets out his car and stands with me “i say don't light it on fire actually” he says
“i agree, but can we put it it facing out so the windshield faces the road” i say
“okay” i answers
“wait” i say just getting an idea and getting back into my ex’s car and sitting on the driver seat thomas then sits on the passenger seat to see what im doing i get my lipstick out my bag and write on the windshield
“i know about mary arse hole
piss of luke
“brilliant love” he says beside me “but if i may add something” he asks so i hand him the lipstick and he writes
“p.s. we did it on the back seat
you cheating lying bastard
making me laugh “brilliant tommy” i say we both then get out the car checking anything we wants out of it and pushing it into the ditch and standing on the road looking at it as he wrapped an arm around me “that is how you get back at your ex” he says we then use my phone to send an exact map reference to luke as to where is car is and a text that says pick me up on it then get back into thomas’s car and drive to my old apartment and wait till we see luke leave out for his car then rush up to the apartment and pack up all my stuff and load it into his car rushing off before luke shows up returning to thomas’s “so lukes gonna let him fuck his little mary, now i've got his y/n” he laughs hugging me
Ive been binge reading your creating a home series (for the fourth time) and its honestly so emotional to read it all so fast, im in the middle of bkya and the part where tae comes home from scouts for the first time and is so exited and telling jin about all his friends honestly made me cry :') my boy is growing up and im so happy for him i love him, i love all your characters, their just so well thought out, their fears, their motivations, everything is so perfect, youre def my fave author
Wow, kid, this is great timing because I LITERALLY just uploaded the new chapter, so you are well prepared for it. It’s probably all fresher in your mind than it is mine!
I am glad you feel like everything is emotional when you read it together. I read through it often, and at this point, if I read Chapter 1 one more time, I’m going to go insane. So a lot of it has lost emotional intensity for me (and also I wrote it, so I can usually see all the techniques, and tricks, and decisions I made, and I know what details I’d write and add next).
But I hope you feel like it goes well together? Like I’m super worried it’s not cohesive enough.
But wah! I am glad you’re happy that Taehyung is growing up. I also love him, and I’m so proud of him.
And I am happy you feel like all their motivations are solid, like I actually have notes that list their hobbies, their talents, their problems, how those problems will be solved, and then the rest of it just sort of… developed. Like I’ve found that Jimin is really driven by shame, even if he’s angry. And that’s like… so clear this chapter. It’s funny how characters sort of tell you who they are instead of the other way around.
do you have a favorite fic/story/book to reread for comfort on bad days?
YES. I am still in America so not at home to peruse my bookshelves, but off the top of my head, these are the books I can (and have) read multiple times, and that I find comforting (I can’t always vouch for quality, because they fill a specific emotional need):
Devil’s Cub by Georgette Heyer
Force of Nature by Suzanne Brockmann (if you have not read about Jules and Robin falling in love, then you need to read Hot Target first, as this is the second book about the two of them)
Katherine by Anya Seton (perfect if you need to lose a day in a historical vacuum of joy)
I Dream of Sadler’s Wells and Veronica at the Wells by Lorna Hill (favourite children’s books ever)
The Gentleman and the Rogue (because Jem is so spectacularly charming I could cry)
Turn by Saras_girl (Harry Potter, Harry/Draco). What if Harry’s life hadn’t gone in this direction, but another?

Into The Woods by manipulant (Panic! at the Disco, Brendon/Spencer). Trapped in a series of fairy tales, the only way back to real life is to live through them.
Unfinished Business by Maygra (Fast and the Furious, Dom/Brian). Everyone’s got their version of what happened after the end of the the movie. This is one.
Open for Repairs by FeelsForBreakfast (Harry Potter, Harry/Draco). After the war, Draco works at a tv repair shop and Harry breaks things. Spectacular.
Switch by Ceres_Libera (Star Trek (2009), Kirk/McCoy). The life and times of Leonard H. McCoy MD/PhD … If Leonard McCoy’s life could get any fucking weirder, it would be … Jesus, he didn’t even want to think what that could possibly mean, because it’s already been too fucking weird to make any kind of rational sense. A Starfleet Academy story, set in the ST:XI universe.
Trade All My Tomorrows For Just One Yesterday by Harriet_Vane (1D, Liam/Louis). “Basically, I’m a superhero,” says Louis. “But only today.” A Groundhog Day AU. Louis gets stuck in one terrible day on tour, over and over and over again.

A Place in the Sun and ignite the light and let it shine by harriet_vane. (1D, Liam/Louis). Louis is looking forward to spending the whole summer with Harry and his friends, working at a summer camp, drinking and being generally stupid.
