A/N: @faslaidir asked for my take on the Newtina prompt ‘letters’, and then this happened. A couple things to note: this is kind of canon-compliant but not really? There’s no war, and it takes place a year after Newt gives Tina a copy of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.
He writes her a letter every day. Rain or shine, there is a
sharp tap at her window every evening at 7, and there it is, every day the same
owl with a letter tied to its leg. She doesn’t think of the hands tying it on,
because she knows that the letters are sorted before being transferred across
the oceans, and that the hands that tie them to the owls are not the ones she
misses. No, Tina focuses on the letter, the messy scrawl at the front
scribbling out her name in green ink. Miss
Tina Goldstein, followed by some nearly illegible lines that she knows are
Aaaaaaand this officially gets added to the “fics that made me cry” list.
This is a really beautiful exploration of all the different emotions one person can feel for another. It’s a self-awakening fic where Louis discovers no matter how hard relationships get, how complicated things may seem, his Home is Harry.
I love, love, love the dimension travel aspect of this fic. It sets up the perfect opportunity for Louis to learn about himself, but it’s also just really fun to see different versions of characters we already love.
This fic is SO GOOD. I absolutely cried during the last chapter - the emotions just swept me away. Read this! Read this! Read this!!!!!!
hey <3 can u recommend some gangster-themed yoonmin fanfics?
experto creed: it is a truth universally acknowledged, that min yoongi in possession of a heart will be in want of sleep.
the meaning to live: there’s a difference between surviving and living and yoongi hopes one day to show jimin that.
the drug i need: working yourself to the bone to keep an empire under control when everything is fucked up isn’t easy. sometimes a man just needs to let go, to become another person for a while, to release everything that’s been building up inside. at least min yoongi does.
repaying the favour (you’re my lifesaver): jimin’s not too sure when repaying the favour turned into a battle of pride, but he’s not about to back down now. not when yoongi’s saved him again, bursting into the abandoned warehouse with daredevilish fanfare.
valentino summers: whether or not Jimin was smuggling drugs really didn’t matter. he was hustling, and these days that was all there was to it. hustle and survive or struggle and die.
sugar and spice: yoongi hates a lot of things in this world, but if there’s one thing he cannot stand, its weakness. and park jimin seems to be the embodiment of it.
gangsters love better: as the leader of a gang yoongi is busy a lot; killing, stealing and smuggling is a lot of hard work to do after all. but there is still some room for a beloved pet, and who would suit better into this role than jimin…?
gi-give it to me: min yoongi, aka agust d, is one of the most successful drug dealers in seoul. his boss, mr jeon, has found a new supplier in the korean-american family kim, and it is yoongi’s job to secure an alliance that would mean billions of dollars worth of trade. shame that yoongi has about as much charm as a leperous eel. luckily, professional escort park jimin is there to help him.
Because she was feeling a bit discouraged the other day and because I admire her greatly as an author–both her incredible ability to produce constant amounts of high-quality fic in short amounts of time and her amazing attention to detail and nuance–I’ve taken it upon myself to recommend you all my favorite stories by @mandatheginger
1. Objective: I binge read this entire story on a bus ride from Boston to Philadelphia and let me just say that I was thoroughly entertained the entire 7 hour trip. The story is classic post-ANH Han, Luke, and Leia with a perfect amount of action and romantic sub-text. One of my all-time favorites.
2. Approach: TRIP TO BESPIN SEXY TIME. Enough said, am I right? Perfectly in-character, we get a flawless portrayal of the early stages of Han and Leia’s romantic involvement, with just enough emotional vulnerability and a degree of UST that makes you desperate for more. Spoiler alert: they don’t even have sex and it’s still some of the best smut out there. Go read it.
4. Pretty Good: ROTJ explicit yet romantic smut. Plenty of touching character exposition. M-Rated HanLeia ficlet of the highest quality.
5. It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time: This is her current project and it’s Ord Mantell!!!! And while I’ve read many interpretations of that particular mission, this one is shaping up to be one of my favorites. The pre-ESB dynamic between them is spot on, and the romantic and sexual tension is just perfect, not to mention that there’s a plot underway that extends past the scope of their relationship. I’m thoroughly enjoying this story and I cannot recommend it enough. Go read it!
I saw one of your answers to what makes you happy was "reading really, really good fic" so I was wondering what some of your faves are? sorry if you've already answered this before! ^^ I know you've said you're a taekook fan, so I'm curious! :)

My dearest friend Gio @alifetimeaheadtoprovethat who is the most caring and dear friend in the world and indulges in my madness made this thing for me cause I wanted something to praise @misocrickette for her wonderful fic Shutter Release, part of a series I hope to keep reading about.
After John is invalided home from the war, he decides to change his career. While working as a forensic photographer, he meets Sherlock Holmes- The world’s only consulting detective.
Seriously, go read this perfect jewel of a fic and also LOOK AT WHAT MY FRIEND DID
Where Your Heart Isby @tvshows-addict and @anhcor (155k): Louis is ready for his brand new adventure. So what if he suffers from a genetic condition that prevents him from being touched? College is going to be awesome. It has to. Karma kind of owes him right now. Forget about his overprotective mother, or Liam– his entirely too chipper step brother– or his mess of a roommate. Forget about the gloves he has to wear at all times. He’s here to expand his knowledge, write and drown himself in books – No matter how distracting ‘Hallway Boy’ may be– The obnoxious, flirty frat wannabe determined to become the bane of Louis’ existence. Or, a college AU set in San Francisco where two lost boys who seemingly have nothing in common find inspiration, each other, and themselves in the process.
You. Hey you!
I don’t know what you’re doing right now, but I know what you should be doing, and that’s reading
Where Your Heart Is
cause, believe me, this fic is gonna change your life. (More under the cut |
It is wonderful. It is a character study on Gabriel Agreste, and probably the best out there. I love how it explores the thought process and pattern of self-justification that can lead someone down the darkest path.
Seriously, it’s masterfully written. I love it so much.
After one too many bad setups, Emma thinks the best way to get out of another blind date is to tell her sister-in-law she already has a boyfriend. But when her brother makes the assumption she’s dating Killian Jones, Emma just might need a Christmas miracle to pull it off.
“You know, I didn’t even get to go to your funeral,” Steve tells him, his hand now flat against Bucky’s chest. He can feel his heartbeat thumping away.
“I’m dead?” Bucky asks, a calmness to his voice.
Steve feels his pulse under his palm and nods. “You’re dead. I’ve been to your gravestone.”
Steve moves into his new apartment in Brooklyn after coming out of the ice and keeps having dreams that Bucky is there with him. He thinks maybe it’s a dream or a hallucination, and he doesn’t know that Bucky is really alive.
Bucky Barnes always knew he’d go down fighting. He just didn’t figure it would go down like this.in which Bucky dies, comes back as Steve’s guardian angel, and stays with him throughout the events of Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers
After Bucky was released from the hospital, it only took him a couple of weeks to give up on himself. Difficult to believe in any kind of future when the simple act of staying alive was almost too big an effort.
Out the frosted window, across the street, there was a tiny homeless guy burrowing under an awning.
It’s six in the morning, and Steve is heading out on a run when he nearly trips over a bouquet of sunflowers on the front steps of his brownstone.
For a second paranoia takes over, and he kicks the flowers a little, waiting for them to explode. They don’t. They also came with a card, which he picks up. The front of the card has a tasteful picture of the Brooklyn bridge at sunset. It’s very nice and sedate, like the kind of card you would buy to give to your boss. On the inside someone has written a short message in big, shaky block letters.
The problem, Bucky thinks now that he has most of his memories back, is that his whole entire world has always revolved around Steve Rogers. Steve has been always been half of Bucky’s identity. Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers’ best friend. Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers’ wingman. Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers’ teammate. And now, well, now Steve had other people to fill those positions. And of course, of course he’d always been a little bit in love with Steve. So when he overhears Steve telling Natasha that he’s finally found someone he’d like to date, someone with similar life experience, Bucky clings blindly to the hope that maybe, just maybe, Steve is talking about him.

The one where Stiles manages to somehow imply that he might be dating his exceedingly hot TA for freshman lit, and ends up inviting him home for the holidays (along with his two crazy sisters) and really hopes that Lydia doesn’t find out he was lying and kill him before maybe he can make it so he’s not lying after all…
