Carmilla Fanfiction Favorites of Mine

MULTICHAPTER

Music To My Ears by Latchingontoyou

Sum: A highschool AU where the whole cast are all in band and orchestra and have their own secrets. The music unites them all in the end where they all become friends that help each other through the trials of growing up. Carmilla and Laura teach each other that love can help anyone survive even through the worst. A lot of angst and fluff. Not smuf. But there is a sequel with smuf. This series has made me cry and laugh spontaneously. It’s beautifully written and I would reread it again.

Find Me Through The Radio is the sequel to this, and it’s a lot of angst and it’s oh so wonderful. Warning: Both of these with kill you with fluff. Make sure to have kleenexs on hand.

Well That Was Unexpected by HollisteinFF

Sum: I really like this author, they have more works that I will mention because they are so good. This story is alot of smuff with some fluff and a plot that creeps up on you and turns into a mystery. It all starts out when Carmilla gets dragged into a strip club with her brother and she spots a small innocent looking honey haired woman that, ironically, goes by the name Honey, who she finds out is actually Laura. They start going on different escapades as they make their way through each other lists of fantasies, until Carmilla finds out that Laura may not be who either of them thought she was. There is also a sequel to this that I have yet to read, Unexpected Consequences by BloodandPaper, HollisteinFF

Good Enough by HollisteinFF

Sum: (This is a fanfic version of the movie Cruel Intentions. It’s beautifully done.) Like I said before, this author is amazing! This about Laura being a music prodigy and she gets accepted into a prestigious school, but before she goes her father decides that she needs to go out and do something besides just music. So he gets her to go to cheerleading camp where she ends up meeting a certain broody girl that has the whole camp of girls in the palm of her hands. (Literally. There’s lots of smuff) This certain brood also happens to be Laura’s new roommate. Which for the entirely too tightly wound blonde, may be the worst or best possible thing to happen to her. In the end they realize they may not be so different after all and that they both have issues. They show each other that love is possible and they can get through anything. Btw you’re in for a huge shocker in the end, and you’ll never expect it. So please grab some kleenexs.

Finding Real Love by KarnsteinRosenberg

Sum: Carmilla is royalty that forced into a life of obligations when at a very young age of 12 she was snatched away from the life she had grown to love. She learns that she must become true to her new self and accept it as the new heir to the throne.

Laura is a princess, who cares for her sickly father who just wants his little girl to be safe and in desperate times decides she needs to marry her off. The two girls lifes collide and they realize that they will need to work together in order to survive what has become their duties and responsibility for their kingdom. A really great story!! The only thing that I could complain is that english isn’t the author’s first language, but they do a good job otherwise. I read so much of this story in just one sitting. There’s 69(teehee) chapters full of angst, smuff, and fluff.

Where Your Treasure Is, There Will Be Your Heart There Also by churchofyourcurves

Sum: If you didn’t realize it from the title and the hint at Lily’s grave, this is a Harry Potter AU in which Laura and Carmilla and the rest of the cast are all wizards and witches that have grown into powers that require them to go to Hogwarts to learn about their abilities. Along the way Laura’s journalism desires get them all digging into things they probably shouldn’t until they all slowly unravel the secrets the school has to offer. This is a really nice twist for those that fell in love with the Harry Potter series and also enjoy reading about the Carmilla characters. Enjoy! Also when you’ve made it through (you’ll need lots of kleenexs with this one as well) all of the teenage angst, and fluff, (no smuff) then please buckleup creampuffs for the sequeal that it also has to provide. Somewhere I Have Never Travelled, Gladly Beyond.

Under Cover of Darkness by Heligena

Sum: Laura tries to sneak into the dorm that she shares with her broody vampire roommate. She comes home with injuries that she’s sporting from a long night and she doesn’t want to have to explain any of it to Carmilla. Her plan backfires when her roommate hears her shuffling around, and she ends up having to explain everything that eventually leads up to them unraveling the mysteries of the happenings that are taking place at the Silas University. All while they try and pretend they aren’t using it as an excuse to spend more time with each other.

This fanfiction is incredibly well written and has alot of mystery written into it that is nice to see along with hollistein. I feel like it really stays true to the actual show and what it had brought forth to all of us, but this is much darker and will not be easy on you. It has everything you could want in the story. Expect more good things from this author. This was beautiful.

Kept by Bodylikeabattleaxe

Sum: A zookeeper AU in which Carmilla is a Big Cat keeper and Laura works with the cute and fuzzy animals. They end up having to work together despite their differences in their job titles, and begin to see that you shouldn’t judge someone by their covers. This is a cute story that shows you the life of a zookeeper, but also shows you that love can be simple. It also can sneak up on you unexpectedly. Being a zookeeper can tug your heart in many different ways, so please creampuffs be prepared. But don’t worry, Hollstein will get us through it in the end. This has angst, fluff and smuff.

Fool’s Gold by whatsthedamage

Sum: I don’t think there is a creampuff left that hasn’t read this Highschool AU, but it’s always a honorary mention in my books. But this is about Carmilla and Laura going through highschool trying to figure out what they want, and come on people we all know that they are going to end up together, so why is it always so difficult for them to figure that out. Watch as these teenagers do everything in their power to avoid what everyone wants! Erjgh! Also this has to be one of my favorites for the simple implications of The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. Yes, thank you so much for that!!! :D

Absolution by lordvoldyfarts

Sum: This has alot of smuff and makes me so happy they way they supplied it in context to plot and angst. Carmilla has to witness her roommate with her girlfriend, Danny Lawrence, everyday and all she can think about it how she so doesn’t care. Nope. It doesn’t bother her at all. She just can’t stop thinking about the little ball of sunshine, but it still doesn’t mean anything. That is until she realizes it means everything. Carmilla decides that she’s going to wait for the right moment and swoop in to get the girl of her dreams.

The Kind of People You Meet On Airplanes by alterocentrist

Sum: More of a short story, but not really. Carmilla and Laura end up sitting next to each other on an airplane. They are complete strangers that are in for a huge surprise. Inspired by David Levithan’s “The Number of People You Meet on Airplanes”. But please don’t go and read that short story before you read this fanfic. This fanfic is more of a short novella, but please read it so your little gay heart’s can get the well deserved break from all of the angst I had thus supplied. This one is an imagining of what might happen when you sit next to a stranger on a airplane. You never know who you might meet. Expect the unexpected.

Also there is a sequel to this one as well!  "Now We’re There, and We’ve Only Just Begun" Oh how I love sequels! It’s also so hard to give up on such a good story. Isn’t that why we are all here reading fanfics? ;)

Pandemic by Puntrest

Sum: An apocalyptic story where a virus breaks out and the whole cast have to stay in a facility, Silas, to survive the plague of the outbreak. They are the survivors and their sole purpose is to help find the cure for the others that exist outside of the walls. Laura and Carmilla have become roommates that know nothing about the other and Carmilla is determined to keep it that way even as determined as her roommate can be about trying to find out what really is going on within the walls of the Silas facility.

This is a really cute story that feels like I am also reading a zombie outbreak twist, but it’s not at all. It just has alot of mystery and plot twists that I solely enjoy. The love story between the two is really a nice break for all of the angst that builds up as well.

My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose by peerieweirdo

Sum: Carmilla and Laura both own stores across from one of each other. One day Carmilla hears the store next to her making an obnoxious amount of noise while in preparation for them opening up, which prevents her from sleeping at night. Running out of patience, she decides to take matters into her own hands and find out what all the ruckus is. Little did she know that such a small woman could make so much noise and turn her world upside down.

One is a floral shop and the other is a tattoo parlor. You’ll never guess who owns which.

Emancipation by ceceash

Sum: In a world where slavery is lawful, Carmilla’s mother owns her own business that puts them in the upper class in which requires them to have slaves of their own to keep their image. On Carmilla’s 17th birthday, she is finally old enough to own one of her own. She goes to the auction house with her mother, who has allowed her to pick out one of her own. Little did she know she would find one that she would like so much. In order to save the little honey haired girl from the greedy hands of the other auctioneers, she convinces her Mom to buy Laura to be Carmilla’s very own slave.

As much as this story seems like it’s pretty fucked, it really isn’t. It’s a good story, that has a lot of beautiful moments. It has it’s unnerving moments with the whole slavery ordeal, but it’s oh so oh so good.

On Your Ground by kaitlynsgonnakait  (tumblr prompt which is really cool)

Sum: Did you know that being intimate with your patient as a doctor is considered unlawful and a violation of hospital policies of the United States and is a justification for imprisonment? So did I, I mean Grey’s Anatomy, obvi, but it still makes for a damn good story. Carmilla and Laura knew that too, but the was the last thing on Carmilla’s mind when she got injured. It was ok, she had a really hot doctor to take care of her though.

Ohhhh soooo much angst. Ughh so good. And smuff with fluff of course. Pfft duh.

Secret Craving by catmilla

Sum: Carmilla is the new history teacher at the Silas highschool. The same school she went to herself. She never really liked school, so she surpised a lot of people when she decided she would teach, but it was her dream. College was finally over and she could finally pursue that dream. She’s nervous, but luckily there’s a little blonde girl that is determined to make her feel welcome to her new class and even more excited to “get to know her”.

Also, did you know that teacher-student relations considered sexual, whether consensual or not, is also illegal in public schools and immediate action of termination is required? Doesn’t this sound alot like that bloomington movie? Anyone else? No? Ok, well carry on.

The Trade We Choose by carmillasleatherpants

Sum: Laura needs a new job and she needs it stat. Luckily her friend LaF decided to put in a request for Laura to become the new personal assistant of the famous Carmilla Karnstein at Karnstein Industries until she becomes the new chairman in November when Carmilla turns 25. Or is she so lucky? When she looks at the reviews of how her possible new boss may act, maybe she isn’t as lucky as she thought she would be. At least that’s what the trail of previous personal assistants have said. Laura refuses to believe that anyone could possibly be that terrible.

This is reminds me of a better version of 50 Shade of Grey, but without the weird abuse. And it’s actually really good. Plus I’d watch this movie over and over again without feeling awkward, even while watching it by myself. *cringe* ok so not 50 Shades of Grey

The Black Cat by marissalyn14

Sum: Laura gets dragged to the Black Cat by her friends in order to get the birthday present of her dreams. Little did she know if would be a Kitty cat in a pretty black robe.

Little does Laura know her world would be turned upside down after she met the girl of her dreams. Maybe the Kitty isn’t as innocent as her name suggests.

This story a nice alternate twist to ‘That Was Unexpected’ that I mentioned before and it doesn’t disappoint. There’s smuff and fluff.

Veni, Vidi, Vici by standoutinacrowd

Sum: A HSAU, but what makes it great is that it has a nice twist of also being a stepsister AU. o.o. Hmm so the gothic broody useless lesbian and the bright and sunny popular girl’s parents decide to get married forcing the two to have to live together. Whats wrong with that? Everything! Carmilla has had a crush on the tiny blonde for 3 years. This can’t be happening! Now her crush is her stepsister. Ughh. (insert broody eyerolling).

On top of that Carmilla has a bad rep of rumors floating in the halls, no thanks to the beanstalk, so the ball of sunshine already has a bad image of her. It can’t get worse, right? Ha! The blonde is straight and her twin brother refuses to give up on his chances of getting in the cupcake’s pants.

This is going to be interesting. Smut and fluff.

-SHORT STORIES-

A Human, A Vampire, And A Werewolf Walk Into A Cliché by WaterBendin

Sum: A short story in which Danny, Laura and Carmilla all decide that they should get to know each other better by playing ‘Truth or Dare’. We all know the cliche of this one, but it turned out completely different than I thought it would. It’s really good.  

Coffee Sophistication by Muse92

Sum: Carmilla works at a coffee shop and she has become an expert at guessing what someone’s order will be. No one has ever surprised her with an order, until now when she meets a tiny journalist. Lots of fluff.

Shameless Smut Tropes by novaprospekt

Sum: I have never felt like a story has ever needed a warning in it’s summary, because well in my opinion I think it gives away the simplicity of the element of surprise. That can always make a story that much better. I have especially haven’t ever felt it necessary to add a warning to a story with a title such as this one, but there’s a first for everything. This story/stories has offended quite a few creampuffs, just because it pushes the boundaries, but if you think you can handle it I highly recommend it. I think it brings a refreshing change to the playground of the Hollistein AUs. I thought it was really good, and you get ample warning before each story provided. So far there are 31 or more stories listen and I think the author plans on adding more in the near future. Enjoy you dirty bastards! Shamelessly.

Anatomy Lessons with Professor Hollis by Fox_is_Fandumb

Sum: Smut with Fluff. Carmilla almost loses her job as the TA for her instructor, Professor Hollis, until Professor Hollis decides to sweep in and offer to tutor her student. The lessons go much better than planned. Maybe Carmilla actually knew a lot more than Professor Hollis had expected.

Special Delivery by bodylikeabattleaxe

Sum: Carmilla gets an interesting package in the mail. With all of the impending doom of Silas, Laura is interested in some change. Maybe this mystery package is exactly what she was looking for. Smut with Fluff.

Break Up to Make Up by littlemonster

Sum: Smut with some fluff. The title says it all.Could easily take place right after their breakup in season 2, but the author wrote it before it actually had taken place. It still reads as such.

In-Flight Distractions by Muse92

Sum: I want to say that the title says it all again, but I won’t be cruel. This is really good smut, about Carmilla having a fear of flying. Luckily she has a really cute distraction.

I plan on adding to this list as I go along. Please if anyone has more to add, tell me so I can make it grow. Ill probably read the stories or put them under as suggestions and add the name(if thats ok) of the person who suggested it for credit.

anonymous asked:

This is stupid but I seriously need help. I desperately want to get into the Marvel Comics, but I'm slightly OCD and things ~bug~ me when I don't start from the beginning. No way to do that here--too much history--and I got shamed out of my local comic store when I asked for help. There are so many arcs and reboots and I'm feeling lost and have no idea where to start things off. Any suggestions? Please? I don't want getting laughed out of the store to hold me back from enjoying this fandom. :/

Hi, anon! It’s not stupid! I am here to help you! Many people are here to help you, and we all love talking about comics! First, I think you should maybe find a different comic store if that is at all an option, because people who want to make you feel bad when all you want to do is be excited about comics are LOUSY and do not deserve your money.

Second, I actually have a guide for people in your situation! I am one of the mods of @besafesteve‘s 18+ 616 Steve/Tony Discord server (come see us, we’re nice!) and we all actually wrote up a guide for for How To Get Into Steve/Tony Comics. We also summarize a bunch of the major arcs in the guide there. But you should join us anyway because it’s an awesome server and we have weekly book clubs.

(I assume you are asking me because you want Steve and Tony recs specifically; if there is something else you want, please let me know.)

Third! I get the whole “wanting to start from the beginning” thing! I wanted to do that too. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend reading everything from the beginning, but you could certainly grab the beginning couple Epic Collections of Avengers, Cap, and IM, and see if you like it. Or subscribe to Marvel Unlimited. (My plan was to read everything in order. I have given up. I read what I need to read to write fic.) But if the early stuff turns out not to be your thing, that’s cool too. There are a lot of comics out there!

Fourth! As for specific recs, it depends on what you’re looking for. There are runs that I really enjoy (like Avengers v3) but that I don’t think are particularly newbie-friendly. (Like, the second drinking arc in Iron Man is probably my favorite Iron Man arc ever – with Director of SHIELD a close second – but I would not rec either if you hadn’t read IM and didn’t already know what was going on and/or (in the case of the drinking arc) already knew you liked comics from the 80s.) There’s Marvel Adventures, which is sweet and I love it but it’s not 616, if 616 is what you want. There are shorter arcs (One Night in Madripoor) and collections (the Iron Man/Captain America TPB) that will give you an idea of Steve and Tony’s dynamic but they’re… well, kind of short. If you do want something short and sweet to start with, I highly recommend Captain America: Man Out of Time, which is a miniseries retelling Steve’s early days in the future (when the Avengers find him) that updates it for a more modern sensibility and it has a lovely scene of Tony taking Steve to the Smithsonian and showing him the future.

What I actually started with was New Avengers v1 (available in various trades; you will want ones that say they are the Bendis run, from 2004, and the first arc is called Breakout), which I will still defend as A Good Place To Start. It’s relatively recent, so the art style and pacing are all modern and probably a little easier to follow than the early stuff. The team is small and for the most part made up of people you will know even without having read that many comics (Cap, Iron Man, Spidey, Wolverine…) and they all get along well and have an excellent team dynamic. There’s maybe 15 issues of this and then Civil War starts. And I know some people will say not to read Civil War – but, let’s face it, we owe the entire 616 Steve/Tony fandom to Civil War. And now that you’re invested, you might as well see how you like the heartbreak. You can just read the Steve and Tony highlights if you want; I can rec a very abbreviated reading order if you’re interested. 

If you want to go back and read Steve and Tony’s BFF years, you can also do that (I mean, the great thing about this pairing is that they are ALSO great friends in addition to all the times they have attempted to murder each other recently), but you should probably at least see Tony crying over Steve’s body. (I recommend Garrideb’s vid Downfall. It got me into this fandom.)

It’s all angst from there on out, basically. When I decided that I was enough into this pairing to actually go to my comic book store and buy a real comic book, it was the week that Avengers v5 #29 came out, so, uh. Yeah. Angst.

I hope that helps!

So this is going to be kind of long. For a starter; A-desu = Weeb, Hono = My best friend.. Excuse any grammar/spelling mistakes too. WARNING this story talks about PDA and covers sexual things that happened as well as slurs and self harm.

Lets start in seventh grade, A-desu is a year younger than me and they are socially awkward. Every time I saw A-desu they were alone, I should have sensed something was up by that but I was too nice of a person to let them be sad and alone. That was the biggest mistake of my life. A-desu and I became friends and we bonded over mutual interests in anime and art, but A-desu started making me really uncomfortable within that year.

They would show me hardcore yaoi porn drawings that they had on their ipod (legend of zelda, furries, and Hetalia) despite me asking them to stop showing me this. At lunch every day A-desu would read yaoi fanfiction, fangirl over it, draw inappropriate things.

3sf: Cas at a strip club

(Ok. Before you read this one, read this one, and then come back here.)

Dean shifted through the garment rack where he kept all his favorite outfits. Firefighter? Nah. Police officer? No. What was with all the positions of authority in his costume selection? He needed to go shopping. His phone buzzed and he pulled up a picture text from Adam. It showed Sam with a man at the bar. 

“The boy does not waste time.” Dean muttered. Victor glanced at the picture over Dean’s shoulder. Back from graduating law school only three weeks now, Sam had wasted no time getting back into the swing of things. 

“Cute.” He said. “Here, do my back.” He ordered Dean as he handed him the glitter he so adored. 

Dean made a face; he was not a fan of glitter. As he finished up, his phone buzzed again. This one was also from Adam. There was a man with an obvious pout on his face.

Sam’s dude’s bro. Sad story. Mikey is calling him Sad Blue Eyes.

I got my hands on an advance copy of the most acclaimed debut novels of the year, “We Are Not Ourselves” by Matthew Thomas. It was, well… I’m man enough to admit that a few pages of my copy are literally warped from tears. I talked about it nonstop for a week and then made my wife read it. She said, “It can’t be as good as you’re saying.” Fifty pages in she was still skeptical and said, “I like it,” in a slightly cavalier tone, “but I think you just read it when you were in a weird mood.” 100 pages in, she disappeared into her room and began ignoring me and the children. When she finished it she found me in the kitchen. Her glasses were wet with tears. She hugged me and said, “Beautiful. So beautiful.” It is beautiful, we agree. It’s a story about a middle-class American woman and her family, struggling to find happiness. I don’t want to say too much and influence your reading, so let me just say, I love this story so much that I decided to start a book club to trick other people into reading it. I contacted the author and he agreed to do an online book-club chat with me. The idea is I’ll chat with him and ask him my questions and your questions, and we’ll all do an old-fashioned book salon (but online). We are going to do the book club/salon in early September, 2014 and the book comes out August 19th, so get a hardcopy, or an e-book, or reserve it at the library–and read it quick! I’ll post again with exact date and time for the salon.
