the thing is, even will swear up and down that isak is the sweetest boy in the entire universe, no matter how often isak denies it. he’s spent so long building up a facade of cultivated grumpiness that it’s easy for isak to dismiss even’s delighted smile when he spends two hours searching for the perfect flowers to give to even’s mom the first time she has them over, when he finds noora staring at old pictures of william on her phone and lets her sniffle into his chest, when isak takes an extra trip to the grocery store to keep his fridge stocked with a healthy supply of sour cream for even.
he’s sweet, and kind, and if the world doesn’t see it enough, that’s just a secret even will hold close to his heart and take to the grave.
“stop looking at me like that,” isak will say as he flicks even off, but that’s unthinkable, because he only looks at isak the way boys who molded the stars in the sky deserve to be looked at.
his best proof of this always comes in their moments alone together, when isak lets his guards down enough to tilt his head up to ask for a kiss, or takes even’s hand just to feel warm skin against his. isak tells him one day that he used to think he could only hurt the people he cares about, and even could tear down the world for ever letting isak feel this way.
they’re lying in bed, sleepy and sweaty from sex, when isak whispers, “you make me feel like a whole new person.” the fingers tracing circles on his hip are so soothing that even’s almost fully asleep, but he still hears the words loud and clear. “i just wanted you to know that,” isak says.
even keeps his eyes shut so he doesn’t startle isak, but he can’t help but think that isak’s wrong. this new, softer isak isn’t a product of even. he’s always been hiding there, underneath the hurt and the pain and the pretending. this is who isak is. this is why even loves him.
even squeezes his hand, so lightly that isak could’ve missed it. he tenses for a minute, but in the next second, isak is nuzzling his nose. even thinks that in that moment, isak finally gets it. but if he doesn’t, even will continue to remind him again and again, for as many times as it takes for isak to understand that they’re permanent.
Molly blinks at him. Touches her hair self-consciously.
Sherlock wets his lips, unable to look away.
“Am I…? Is it falling down?”
And she turns to look in the mirror above her mantle-piece, checks her hair. The thick, dark tresses are wound into a single braid, pinned against her head in an up-do that it is taking all of Sherlock’s will power not to pull asunder.
I’m actually in the process of writing a lists upon lists of fic recs, but I think I’m overdue for another fic rec list to tide y’all over! How about, in the same style of my last “random fic rec list”, a list of the last 50 fics I just recently bookmarked? Listed in word count order, because it’s the easiest way for me to organize these :D Enjoy!
(As a side note, this was only supposed to be “Top 10″, then 20, then 25, and now it’s 50. I had to stop or I would have just done all my bookmarks, LOL)

Want by siennna(T, 1,806 w. || Fluff, Pining, First Kiss, POV Sherlock, Requited, Second Person POV) – When John speaks, you hear more than words. You hear the rise and fall of his tone, the comfortable quake of his laughter, the warm pauses of silence in between.

He doesn’t linger when he’s piecing Sherlock back together after a fight, even though he’s half-dressed and beautiful and right there. He can ignore it. He can control it.

Thirty Three Hours Without John Watson by Bookaholic, mybrotherharry(M, 6,232 w. || First Kiss / Time, Pining Idiots, BG Mystrade, Crackish) – Sherlock can SO TOTALLY survive without John Watson. It should be a piece of cake.AKA the time when Sherlock braved grocery store lines for milk, purchased and gave away a box of tampons and figured out what the X-Factor is. Greg and Mycroft didn’t sign up for this shit. Next time, they are going to the Bahamas.

A Lifetime Together by LondonGypsy(M, 8,886 w. || Tooth-Rotting Fluff, Falling in Love, Friends to Lovers, Slow Burn, Pining Idiots, Alternating POVs, Domestics, Retirement) – John and Sherlock falling in love.
The Devil You Know by PipMer (T, 9,300 w. || Friends to Lovers, Romance, Holmes Brothers, Jealous Sherlock) – The Holmes brothers are behaving oddly. John is dazed and confused. In other words, it’s business as usual at 221B Baker Street. Except when it’s not.

Anytime by SilentAuror(E, 17,995 w. || UST, Porn With Feels, POV Sherlock, Romance, UST/URT, Happy Ending, Drunken Endeavors) – Sherlock blinks and attempts to focus. There is a little too much vodka in his veins at the moment and it’s having an unfortunate effect on his brain and retinas both. There are two Johns sitting across from him, and both of them are frowning at him.“You’re drunk,” the Johns tell him. Sherlock blinks some more. “Says the man with Mrs Hudson’s doily on his head.”

Rel, PTSD, Codependency, Fluff & Angst, H/C, Smut, Demisexual Sherlock, Experiments) – John wonders if this is how it’s going to be: A life speaking in code, because they’re both too stupid to figure out how to say, “I love you.”
Once Upon a Beast Becoming by antietamfalls (T, 24,042 w. || Beauty and the Beast AU || Magical Realism, Folklore, Celtic Mythology) – An act of pride, a druid’s curse, an enchanted leaf; Sherlock’s torment has lasted an age.

Don’t Leave Anything Out by lookupkate(E, 27,422w. || Epistolary, Falling in Love, Misunderstandings, Alternate First Meeting) – The first letter John writes home from Afghanistan is meant to go to a woman he went on only one date with. How it ends up in Sherlock’s hands is completely innocent. What happens next is not. What do you do when you find out the person you’re in love with has been lying about something as monumental as who they are? What do you do when you’re the one who lied? How on earth do you put the pieces back together?
“finally kiss the bloody idiot” by Salambo06(E, 29,812 w. || Mutual Pining, Fake Relationship, First Kiss / Time, Angst, Misunderstandings, Fantasies POV John) – Inspired by a fic idea on tumblr : “John and Sherlock know the Yard has a pool going for when they’re finally going to get together. It’s been running forever, and it’s worth thousands of pounds. It’s all fun and games, hahaha, until they find out Lestrade is in dire financial straits (dog needs emergency surgery, he’s putting his kid through gymnastics training, I don’t know, something), and they decide to fake a relationship to win the pool for him. Sherlock figures out the day and way that Lestrade thinks it’s going to happen, and they act it out. It’s all for a good cause, fake relationship style, until it’s not.” Part 1 of The Pool
A Promise Made to Be Broken by PlantsAreNeat(E, 37,018 w. || Fake Relationship, Pining, Slow Burn, RST, Eventual Relationship, POV Sherlock) – A young John makes an ‘if we’re still single at 40, we’ll get together’ pledge to a woman who ends up all wrong for him. She keeps reminding him of the promise, and won’t let go of it. John asks Sherlock to pose as his boyfriend at a family wedding, so as to dash her hopes permanently. Sherlock, who has at last acknowledged his feelings for John, reluctantly agrees despite knowing how painful it will be to ‘have’ John, but not keep him.
Resistivity and Relative Charge by liriodendron(E, 41,750 w. || Synesthesia, Angst, Case Fic, Romance, Est. Rel., Homophobia, Religious Content, Victor Trevor, Mild Jealous John, Mild John Whump) – In which Sherlock Holmes meets an old acquaintance, John Watson doesn’t enjoy a trip to the country quite as much as he thought he would, and the past absolutely refuses to stay where it belongs. Part 3 of Conductivity
Fan Mail by scullyseviltwin(E, 53,942 w. || Stalking, Obsessive Fans, Angst) – “WatsonChick143 has been rather maniacal in her commenting as of late… she’s left comments on everything you’ve posted John, something so obvious can’t have escaped even your attention.“
A Cure For Boredom by emmagrant01(E, 81,665 w. || Dirty Talk, Threesomes, Light Dom/Sub, Sex Club, Experiments, Anal, Mildly Dubious Consent) – They’d never talked about sex in the year they’d known each other. Well, that wasn’t quite correct: Sherlock had never said a word about sex; John had bemoaned his personal dearth of it on many occasions.
The Stars Move Still by BeautifulFiction(E, 96,022 w. || Magical Realism, Demons, Slash to Pre-Slash, AU, Happy Ending) – "What could I want so desperately that would make me sell my soul? What could possibly compel me to surrender the part of myself that makes me who I am: the source of my magic, my self-control, everything?”
The Heart In The Whole by verityburns (E, 101,650 || Post-TGG Canon Divergence, Drama & Angst, H/C, First Time) – Events after ‘The Great Game’ leave Sherlock dependent on his best friend and colleague. But John has a secret of his own…
between each beat are words unsaid by darcylindbergh, hudders-and-hiddles(T, 107,998 w. || Epistolary, Slow Burn, Friends to Lovers, Angst, Happy Ending) – On their wedding night, John and Sherlock gift each other with the things they each said when the other could not hear, the things they each put down where the other could not see: a collection of writings that illustrate the way their love for one another has grown over the years. Part 1 of between each beat

Summary: Phil calls Dan a slut during sex and Dan doesn’t like it.
Genre: Fluff/Angst/Smut Warning: degradation, dub-con Wordcount: 1.8k A/N: I decided it’s time to finally start working on the prompts in my inbox. I have no idea how old this one is, I’m sorry it took me so long.
If someone would ask Dan how his sex life was, he’d confidently reply that it was great. Him and Phil, they had plenty of sex. In the bedroom. In the living room. In the kitchen. In the shower. And not only did they have plenty of sex, they also had good sex. Mind-blowing sex. The kind of sex that made you come so hard that you’d feel boneless afterwards, needing a minute or two to catch your breath again.
The Auror Department is instating a K9 Crup Unit, and Harry is the first to sign up. Turns out the professional trainer is Draco Malfoy, and he has to live with Harry as part of the Crup training programme.
K9 UNIT I MEAN COME ON!
“As soon as he reached them he dropped to his knees, getting his jeans soggy in the mud, and the puppies all lost their composure. They yipped, squirmed and leapt excitedly up into Potter’s waiting arms. His warm, full laugh echoed out into the crisp morning air. Draco opened his mouth to tell him off for not waiting for permission, but the sight of the puppies happily wiggling their way through Potter’s arms to lick any part of him they could reach made warmth spread through his stomach.”
BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD. PUPPIES MAN PUPPIES.
““…and that is why, to this day, they remain the number one choice for trainable companions of wizards and witches,” Malfoy finished, sounding every bit as proud and haughty as he had at school.
Harry nodded, not wanting to draw attention to the fact that he hadn’t listened to most of what Malfoy had said”
Same Harry. When there’s a puppy, all attention goes to puppy. It’s a rule.
Okay tbh this review will only be of me screaming about how much I love puppies, but if puppies haven’t convinced you yet, you’re weird and cruel. This is an absolute masterpiece, Harry is super hot and totally got the hots for Draco and it’s super cute and fluffy. And there are puppies.
There was talk about Harry’s childhood with the Dursleys, which is always something I love, praise kink (HNG), Draco has like a million and one jumpers and Harry and Draco’s banter. Just. Love it.
They must have some form of kinks right? Viktor could have a kink for men in uniform, as well as being handcuffed and screwed with a large objects... which inadvertently leads him towards dating cops.
I mean, they probably have kinks XD THOUGH IF VICTOR’S FANTASY IS ANYTHING TO SHOW BY IT HIS KINK IS DOMESTIC BLISS I don’t think he has a tendency to want to date cops P: I think he he just wants Yuri XD The fact Yuri is cute and sexy and looks good in a uniform is a bonus X3
“Now, when I got you this kneazle, you were supposed to be responsible, to take proper care of it. It’s your pet.”
Percival was struggling with the armful of orange furred catlike creature, and Credence was just trying not to laugh.
“Why can’t we share her? It doesn’t make sense. She lives here with both of us…”
Wide eyes, and a hint of a wobble to his lower lip was usually a guarantee to get him what he wanted, and this was no exception. Percival sighed, and then carefully handed over the creature, which Credence had dubbed ‘Charlie,’ though he still wasn’t sure why. He hoped that Scamander hadn’t had anything to do with it, beyond adopting it out in the first place.
“Thank you Daddy.”
Credence held his cheek up for a kiss, and Percival obliged, before putting his hand on his other cheek, and turning him so he could kiss him properly.
“Go on. Let her loose around Central Park for a bit. Make sure you use the shield charm if she tries to climb any tall trees.”
“Why? Don’t cats always land on their feet?”
Percival gave him a look, and Credence just smiled innocently.
Dean doesn’t have to say they’re going shopping for rings. Sam can see it, the way he drums the steering wheel and fiddles with Mary’s ring. The way he glances at Sam whenever a love song comes on, smiling for himself.
When they arrive to downtown Lebanon, Dean shoots Sam a nervous glance and parks the Impala close to a Tiffanys.
Right before they walk into the shop, Dean slides their mothers silver ring off his finger and pops it into his jacket pocket.
Sam raises an eyebrow at his big brother before opening the door to the store. Dean smiles contently, throwing his brothers arm around his shoulders.
“Hello”, he says blatantly. “We want to shop for some wedding rings.”
Hey there. A while ago you posted a fic rec post and said you might do one for original fic too. Just wondering if you're still planning on doing this as i'm curious as to what you like reading?
Hey there nonnie! I did say that didn’t I - my bad. Work and uni kind of got in the way. Anywhoo, how about a list now?
(some will be NSFW)
House Rules by Jodi Picoult- A teenager with aspergers who is obsessed with forensic science. And then the police come knocking.
Jacob’s behaviors are hallmark Asperger’s, but they look a lot like guilt to the local police.’
Losing You by Susan Lewis . There are so many stories interwoven into the tragedy that occurs the night Oliver accidentally runs Lauren over. Like the reason Oliver was even behind the wheel that night, despite the fact that he’d been drinking, in the misguided attempt to save his mother from herself, the toxic relationship between his dad and alcoholic mother, and Lauren’s own relationship with her mother and the secrets she was keeping from her. All come to a head that night and are slowly and painfully peeled back, exposing harsh truths and the damage they can do to each other and the consequences of those actions.
I have a soft spot for
’s books, particularly the I Hunt Killersseries. This features the son of a serial killer over 3 books. Also, the audiobooks narrated by Charlie Thurston make it even better. He seriously nails ‘dear old dad’svoice perfectly. Think Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds, but younger and much more psychologically damaged.
Barry Lyga also wrote
Boy Toy . This is quite a taboo subject but very emotionally hitting. It’s about a young teen (17?) who finds out the woman he lost his virginity to when he was 12 - his teacher - is being released from prison early. The story flits between present day and when he was 12 and the following months/years. It was sometimes uncomfortable reading but refreshing to read from a male point of view.
Split by Swati Avasthi . This starts with Sixteen-Year-Old Jace Witherspoon arriving at his estranged brother Christian’s apartment after being beaten by his dad. They haven’t spoken in years. Christian has built his life up again after years of abuse and had hoped his younger brother escaped it. Of course, with Christian out of the way, Jace takes the brunt of it. After an incident with his dad and some unspecified event (that you learn about as the book develops) Jace arrives hoping to tentatively re-build his relationship with the brother who walked out on him. This book deals with domestic and child abuse. Also fits perfectly into my love for protective brothers in books.
Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig . This was an interesting read with a mystery that keeps you turning the pages. The main protagonist’s ex-girlfriend has disappeared. Nothing seems to make sense. As well as the mystery factor it’s also a story of self-discovery for the MC. This is really a gem of a read. The only issue I had with it is the characters seem much older than they are depicted in the book, but that’s really only a slight issue.
Lisa Henry (aka @thisdiscontentedwinter ) and
have written some of my fave books. The above recs were more YA and these are definitely not:
The Good Boy (and it’s sequel) is both an angsty and kinky read. Lane’s parents have been found guilty of fraud. His mother is in prison and his dad’s on the run. Lane - suspected of being involved and wholly innocent - has been left with nothing and ends up trusting the wrong person. Physically and emotionally hurt and traumatized, Lane is taken in by the one person he never thought would help - Derek, one of the victims of the fraud. It’s a dom and sub story, pupply play and some BDSM. This was one of my first forays into MM fic and remains one of my faves.
When All the World Sleepsis probably my third favourite of the pair. It features a guy who sleepwalks. And when he sleepwalks he kind of does some serious shit. Like setting fire to Kenny’s house. With Kenny inside. Now he’s back home after serving his time and lives in a cabin by himself where he chains himself to the bed so he doesn’t do anything stupid. Like kill someone. Too bad people wont leave him alone. Then there’s the cop who doesn’t believe him. Cue some sexual tension. Of course, after some retribution from the townsfolk leaves the MC unable to save himself, the cop can’t quite rightfully leave him alone and chained up at night. so he agrees to do it for him. And the more time they spend together the more they fall into each other’s lives. Dom and Sub.
Less kinky and much more lighthearted is the Playing the Fool series. I think I have recced this before. This is seriously one of my fave series. Henry is a con-artist who has witnessed a mob-hit in the middle of his own hustle. Mac is the FBI agent who is tasked with finding the errant witness. Need I say more? Well, I will because no matter how many times I read this series (3 of them) I end up cracking up every time. Henry is a hoot. Charming to everyone except Mac who he enjoys winding up. They’re a perfect pair. Kind of.
Of course, it’s not all a laugh a minute. You can’t have a
Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock without a little angst thrown in. They sprinkle just enough of Henry’s backstory throughout the series to explain some of the reasons he is the way he is without giving too much away. If any character is going to stay with you after you’ve finished reading, it’s going to be Henry.
Oh, and I suggest you read it with the audiobook too. I love Nick. J. Russo’s voice.
I still have plenty of the author’s other works yet to read in my kindle.
Five in a Bed series by
M.A. Blisher - this is polyamorous. Domestic Discipline. And Daddy kink. One of my guilty pleasures. But there is a backstory to Danny and heaps of psychological angst so it’s not just a pwp offering.
Shadow of the Templar series by
M. Chandler . Jeremy Archer. Art Thief. Simon Drake. FBI. UST galore. Actually, there’s not a lot of sex in the series. A lot is fade to black scenes. And that’s what makes the series so great. It’s not pwp. It doesn’t need sex to make me want to read the series. There’s actual plot. Cases. Action. And the fact that Jeremy and Simon both circle in and out of each other’s orbits. There’s selfishness, there’s conflicts of interest. There’s feelings. There’s sacrifices. And really, with their backgrounds and history, Simon and Jeremy existed before they were even Simon and Jeremy. * excuse me while I immerse myself in their orbits *.
Although I am yet to read all of the series, I quite enjoy the Voices series by
Sarah Masters - psychic and detective. working together. smexy times. Enough said.
Old School Discipline byMisha Horne - if you are familiar with this author then you’ll know spanking will be involved. And I just love characters who have smart mouth’s and bratty characteristics.
I still have plenty, but I’ll keep those for a later date
