hi!!!! just wondering if you had any recs like your fic Understand Me??? xoxoxoxoxooxoxox
Hello!! FIRSTLY, I am so so sorry this took so long but a lot of these I haven’t read for a while or haven’t caught up on them so I had to go back all over them and just dhfsdhfadffh so I’m really sorry about that! Forgive me pls
(Also I’m not really sure what pairings you want so I’ll just share some of my fave fics that I’m reading/have read)
Lucky for you I read too many fics for my own good so if you’re looking for fics like Understand Me I have some nice angsty ones I’ve read AND some 2Jae/MarkJin if that’s the pairings you’re looking for ;)
MarkJin: Loves Quiet Place by niazkilam Status - Ongoing. Not rated. College AU. This fic explores what most (even pro) writers stray away from - representing characters with common disabilities. The writer shows how we can adapt to include and support communities of deaf people. A lovely, fluffy, slow-burn fic with cute drawings sprinkled here and there to go along with the story. Gave me serious feels already. High expectations for how this fic will unravel.
Blue Neighbourhood by gotsichi7 Status - Completed. Mature. A wonderfully angsty AU, but beware of issues such as smoking and alcohol abuse throughout. Cleverly (and heavily) inspired by Troye Sivan’s studio album ‘Blue Neighbourhood’. Well-written with a few editing mistakes (but not enough to take away from the story). Graphic scenes of smut. Definitely listen to the album while reading.
No more empty chairs (Route 66) by jinyoungstuan Status - Completed. Teen and Up. College AU in which Jinyoung is the main announcer on his university’s local radio station and Mark is a past street-racer. Deals with heavy topics such as depression and suicidal thoughts/attempts. Angst galore. Well-written with a few editing mistakes. I like a lot this writer’s fics and would recommend you read some more of theirs!
YoonSeok: Oops, Sorry by VeryGhost Status - Completed. Teen and Up. Wrong number texting AU in which Hoseok is a college student and Yoongi is an underground rapper. Very cute and low-key angsty.. Side NamJin and VMin. Quite a simple fic but it really made my heart hurt at points. Haven’t finished it yet but I love it so far.
A simple question by ItsaShrillFeeling Status - Ongoing. General. Idol-verse AU like Understand Me. Sweet and fluffy. Quite simple but has an interesting story-line. This fic explores struggling with/ discovering ones sexuality. Interested in seeing how this story pans out.
Let’s Try and Try Again by forjimin Status - Completed. Explicit. College/Friends with Benefits AU. It explores manipulation in a relationship and the effects of coping with traumatic life events in an unhealthy manner. As surprising as it may be it was one of the few fics that actually made me cry. Feel free to ask me why if you want.
YoonMin: The Letter Thief by d4wndust Status - Completed. Teen and Up. Wrong number texting AU. Explores overcoming depression. Very simple but 100% guaranteed to make you sob by the last chapter. (I sobbed like a baby at the end) Must listen to each song mentioned for added effect. Side TaeKook.
XiuChen: Mechanical by vixxedfeelings Status - Ongoing. Teen and Up. Robot AU (I guess??) Mystery. Slow burn, angst and pining. Very interesting story-line. I anticipate the outcome and discovering just exactly what’s happening. Very slow updates.
TaeGi: (Now for shameful exposure) Where The Heart Is by roachprince Status - Ongoing. Explicit. Pretend boyfriends AU. Quite funny with a slow burn and then suddenly goes from 0 to 100 (aka smut) It’s done for plot and if you read on far enough you’ll find out why. Quite well-written. Mentions of past CSA. Past YoonSeok and VMin. Side NamJin and JiHope.
Finding Home by Bandit4Life Status - Completed. Not rated. AU. Explores depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders and attempted suicide. Please be respectful to the writer as this fic was wholly based on their real life experiences. Hurt my heart so much, but I loved this fic.
JackBam: (I actually don’t ship JackBam lol but this fic is great) Jupiter In Retrograde by amerithotkongs Status - Ongoing. Explicit. 1980′s AU. Had me hooked from the very first sentence. Lovely, flowing writing style - clearly well-written and thought out. Dialogue is exceptional (since this is something writer’s often struggle with) sentences just seem to flow so naturally. Love it. High expectations. Side MarkJin.
2Min: Somewhere Far Away From Here by nonsensicalnonsense Status - Completed. Not rated. High school AU. A lovely lil first person fic about discovering and accepting ones sexuality. Though it’s not tagged as such beware of tooth-rotting fluff. Angst fest. Very cute. Side JongKey.
HimDae: The Thin Space Between Us by Jishubunny Status - Completed. Teen and Up. A one shot exploring into the mind of a person suffering with OCD. Very sweet. Fluffy and cute. A bit unrealistic but a nice and easy read.
The World in a Grain of Sand by jezzberry Status - Completed. Mature. Yoga Au (of all things…) Honestly such a guilty pleasure fic. Very artistically written. Most definitely well-written. Like honestly I was shook by the writing. Lots of metaphors but that just helps in drawing you in.
baby, baby by andnowforyaya Status - Completed. General. Babysitting AU. Single parent Himchan and babysitter Daehyun. One of my personal faves. Just plain adorable. Cute, sweet fluffiness. Also funny. Quite well-written. Tugged on my heart strings a lot.
*** I’m actually so sorry but I thought long and hard about it before realising that I don’t really read a lot of 2Jae, like, I’m a 2Jae hoe but don’t really read any 2Jae fics :/ Also idol-verse fics are very hard to come across so I apologise that I couldn’t tailor to your request that well :(
Despite that, I hope you like some of these :) I specialise in rare pairs but you should definitely give them a try and also these fics a try cuz personally I think the majority are very good! (I’m just so shocked at how many of these were so explicit. Oops?) Please tell me if some of the links are faulty.
in which jonghyun’s tattoos are finally kissed as they should be!! + kisses on his soft tummy!!!!
for the sake of proper tattoo care, this takes place in the future. tattoos are virtually an open wound so pls don’t kiss them for a while. imagine they had practiced that day for their swc in hong kong or something and are staying the night in the dorm before boarding a plane in the morning. i also have no self control and this is way longer than i intended :/
They are seated on the floor of their dorm, drinking wine from crystalline glasses Kibum spent too much money on (“You’ve got to treat yourself sometimes,” he had explained to Taemin, handing his limitless credit card to the cashier) as they watched an uninteresting drama on the television. Taemin and Minho are seated on the left side of the table, Jinki across from them. Jonghyun and Kibum are leaning against the couch, Jonghyun watching the drama while Kibum entertains himself with his phone.
Taemin, the least interested in the Straights™, is watching anime on his phone as he leans back against Minho, who is focused entirely on the bag of spicy potato chips on the table in front. Jinki pours himself his fourth glass of wine.
Jonghyun spins the sparkling juice (“Even if you’re not drinking, you’re drinking with us.”) in his glass as the drama focuses on the uninteresting subplot concerning the main character and her cousin, who bullied her when they were both children. While arguably the most invested in the drama, it’s only because the male lead has a crooked smile and broad shoulders.
Kibum pokes Jonghyun in the arm. “Can I see?”
Jonghyun turns to Kibum, brow furrowed. “See what?”
“Your tattoos!” he whines. “Last time I saw them they were gross and peeling.” Kibum pulls at Jonghyun’s sweatshirt. “Come on, Jjong, let us see them.”
“Fine,” Jjong says with a shrug, straightening from the couch to pull off his sweatshirt, revealing his bare arms and the tank top he had put on earlier before realizing it was too cold in their dorm. He throws it back onto the couch and reaches for his glass. It isn’t until the liquid touches his lips that he remembers its virgin—and that he has no excuse for the blush growing on his cheeks. There’s no reason for him to be embarrassed or nervous right now, he’s just showing his tattoos to his boyfriends, and it’s not like they hadn’t seem them before now…
Kibum wraps his fingers on Jonghyun’s right wrist and stretches out his arm. He has to adjust his position a bit, pushing himself forward so Jonghyun’s arm is behind him. “It’s alright to touch right?”
Jonghyun nods, his free hand holding his sweatpants in a tight grip. “Yeah, they’re all healed now. On the surface at least…so it’s okay.”
Jonghyun watches as Kibum pokes a curious finger directly on the dot between “NEVER” and “THE.” He runs his finger slowly across the rest of the tattoo, brushing the skin slightly.
Jonghyun yelps in surprise as Minho grabs his other wrist. “I want to see the other one,” he explains, encouraging him forward with a light tug.
Jonghyun complies, scooting toward the table as Minho readjusts his position, spreading out his right leg straight past Jonghyun and Kibum’s back and bending his other at the knee, socked foot brushing Jonghyun’s thigh. His touch is less inquisitive than Kibum’s, determined but still gentle as he swipes his thumb over the word. “Inspiration,” he whispers and Jonghyun’s blush intensifies and he draws both arms closer toward his body.
“I’m still looking,” Kibum grumbles, pulling Jonghyun’s arm out again.
“I want to see too,” Taemin chimes in, putting down his phone. Jonghyun blinks up at him, amazed that he had managed to look up from his anime at all. He rises to his feet and squats beside Minho. A moment later Jonghyun feels the soft, almost ticklish touch of Taemin’s pinky across the red line of his tattoo. Minho lifts his own finger so Taemin can trace it in its entirety.
Jonghyun only realizes Jinki has joined in on feeling out his tattoos when he feels his finger join Kibum’s on his left arm. He looks over at Jinki, who flashes him a large smile. “They’re cool, Jjong.”
“It makes me want one,” Taemin breathes. “Maybe like… a cross somewhere.”
“Or you could get One Punch Man,” Kibum says dryly, to which Taemin frowns.
Minho pushes Taemin away from him. “I”m going to check out the tattoo on the other arm.”
Jonghyun’s blush flares up again. “Why are you guys doing this to me? I’m not a doll or something.”
“But you’re our boyfriend and you did just permanently mark your skin,” Kibum replies. “We have a right to investigate.”
“Yeah, we have a right,” Minho parrots, rising to his feet stepping around Jonghyun. Kibum follows suit, Jinki scooting forward to resume Kibum’s old position while Taemin slides forward into Minho’s. There’s a moment of shuffling before all four are again prodding his skin and tracing the inked words.
“Why are you guys like this?” whines Jonghyun, voice straining. “This is so embarass—ah.”
Jinki giggles into his skin, leaning forward and kissing his tattoo gently again. “Hmm?” Jinki asks, rubbing his thumb beneath the tattoo.
Minho pushes Jinki to the side, leaning over him to press his lips to “LESS.” Jonghyun holds back a gasp, the area sensitive and the feel of both of their lips sudden.
He really shouldn’t be shocked when lips press to “INSPIRATION,” but he still inhales sharply. Taemin, who has dropped to his stomach, pulls back to giggle before kissing his tattoo at the far left, then again a little to the right, and again and again as he traces his way over the tattoo’s entirety. Jinki and Minho, too, are peppering his skin with their soft lips, gently kissing his inked skin.
Kibum, who cannot join Taemin in kissing the INSPIRATION tattoo due to its odd placement, looks up at Jonghyun, who is so red one would think all the blood in his body has pooled in his cheeks. “Are you thinking of getting tattoos anywhere else, Jonghyun?”
“Um, probably… I think I might get another little one on my wrist but I’m not sure,” he answers, if only to distract himself from the feel of his boyfriends’ lips on his skin.
Before Jonghyun even finishes, Kibum shifts downward so he is on his knees right where Jonghyun’s hand is resting against his thigh. Closing his eyes, Kibum leans forward and breathes softly against the inside of his wrist once, twice, and then presses his lips gingerly against the sensitive skin.
“K-Kibum, what are you doing?”
“Getting it ready,” he replies simply, eyes still closed. His breath ghosts teasingly over Jonghyun’s wrist as he speaks. “Tattoos aren’t great for your skin, so I’m kissing it better preemptively.”
Speechless and embarrassed beyond belief, Jonghyun watches as Minho, too, pulls back from his tattoo and begins to kiss his opposite wrist. “M-Min…”
Raising to a seated position, Taemin drags his finger along the INSPIRATION tattoo, but his breath flutters warmly against the base of his neck. “I think you should get one here, too,” he mutters before pressing his lips against the skin there.
Both Kibum and Minho are now making their way up Jonghyun’s arm, pausing briefly at the inside of his elbow because of how sensitive Jonghyun is there.
“What about here?” Jinki asks teasingly, lifting up Jonghyun’s shirt and kissing his tummy right beside his belly button.
Jjong gasps in surprise. “S-stop, I’m ticklish!”
“That’d be cute,” Kibum says, sliding beneath Jonghyun’s arm and kissing his stomach. “What about flowers right here? Going around your belly button…”
“Cute,” giggles Minho, pulling away from his tattoo and kissing his shoulder. “You could get something here, too.”
Taemin’s lips, climbing up his neck, pause beneath his ear. “Something little here… A bow, maybe?”
“Y-you guys…” Jonghyun whines.
Minho slides his hand beneath Jonghyun’s chin, turning his head so they are facing one another. “You’re really cute.” He leans forward and pecks Jonghyun’s lips.
When Minho pulls away, Jonghyun breathes. “I’m not going to tattoo my lips.”
“Oh?” Minho breathes, one hand traveling toward the hem of Jonghyun’s shirt and lifting it upward. “What about here, then?” he mutters, leaning his head downward to join Kibum and Jinki in kissing his shot tummy. Taemin, too, clambers over Kibum to press his lips right over his belly button.
“M-maybe…” Jonghyun mutters, finally giving into the warmth that lingers on his skin with each loving kiss.
1. Hold My Breath (zarah5) - It’s possible — possible — that his three-week ban from the football pitch makes Louis just a tad antsy. Surely it’s not so bad that it warrants punishment in the form of his friends signing him up for a yoga class? Either way, Louis is determined to hate every second of it.
He didn’t count on a yoga instructor who wears flower-patterned headscarves and smiles like summer won’t end.
2. Shine (togetherwecouldbealright) - Louis is an actor who needs to get away from the real world. He does the only thing that he can and runs away, finding himself in a small town where he happens upon Harry. What Louis doesn’t expect is to somehow fall in love and end up having to face what he was running from all along.
3. As You Are (zarah5) - Five years after The X Factor launched his career as a radio host and songwriter, Louis Tomlinson returns as a judge. Falling for a contestant is the last thing he needs. It’s also against his contract.
4. Sing When You’re Winning (hazmesentir) - Harry’s a chronically underpaid magazine intern and Louis is the Premier League’s first gay footballer and pretty much the last thing they need is each other.
5. We’re Afire Love (soleilouis) - Harry and Louis are best friends. Harry has the whole “crush” thing under control, honestly. Until, of course, he moves in with Louis and his baby.
Hi! I hope it's not a bother to ask if you have any fic recs?
okay, this is a question i get a lot, and i’m never sure how to answer it?? for two main reasons:
1) i usually go searching the tags if i want something specific. i know a lot of people don’t have the patience for that, but that’s just what i do. so, in particular, i don’t have favourite blogs, i just stumble across whatever i do and like it.
2) tumblr moves fast. i had this old habit of adding a fanfic to my chrome favourites if i really like it, so that it’s easy for me to find it later. and i was going through looking for some of those for you guys and most of the blogs that had written some of the most amazing fics had deleted or moved or some other crap. (tbh even if i stop writing i don’t think i would ever delete or change my url just so you guys know where to find my stuff.)
with that in mind, here are my fic recs (which are really just some of my favourite fics) along with some more notes:
Tight by @cuzimsickwithhope - one of the best blurbs i’ve ever read. caught my eye right off the bat. fucking wrecked me in so few words and that’s what really counts. (Jungkook x reader feat. Jimin)
Cotton Bananas (on ao3) - i found this when i was looking through the seventeen stuff on ao3 the other day. it was oddly satisfying for my jeoncheol itch. (Jeonghan x Seungcheol with a nice panty kink ;) )
A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More Touch Me (on ao3) - this is like the fanfic of my dreams. i stumbled upon this completed on a coincidence, and i was surprised and overjoyed. basically, it’s the Taehyung is a kinky motherfucker BTS trainfuck/gangbang fanfic of my dreams. and you might be happy to know it heavily inspired something of my own i have in the works. also the title is a fall out boy song, what more could i ask for???
In Case Of Emergency (on ao3) - this might have given me a weird abo pregnancy kink someone help me i’m so deep deep in hell (Jimin x Namjoon abo au)
Play House (on ao3) - one again me being hybrid au trash (Namjoon x Jungkook x Jimin hybrid au)
Baby, Why The Sudden Change? (on ao3) - this was the fic that turned me onto the whole hybrid thing, and single handedly convinced me that Jimin is made of marshmallow fluff and sunshine (and Yoongi’s cum) (Yoongi x Hoseok x Jimin hybrid au - with a slight, slight hint of Jin x Jimin)
and for a real fucking throwback, an old 5sos fanfic i found in my favourites:
Kiss Away Young Thrills (on ao3) - i actually love this prompt so fucking much. i saw a couple of edits of them with it and i love it. i remember seeing their selfies and twitter posts and damn son. Malum is real. anyway. (Calum x Michael, drug use warning)
and finally, the best for last:
Do You by @thewritingsinquestion - some fucking quality smut. ugh namjoon in such a daddy, but this is just such a good daddy smut anyway. you have no clue how many times i’ve read this and… wait, that’s tmi. anyway, it’s a goodie. everything on this fucking blog is ace. but this is my absolute favourite. (Namjoon x reader, Daddy kink)
you will also notice that if you go through the name tags of a couple of the people on the masterlist, there is some reblogged recs for some of them, if the links for those are still active (as stated to the problem above)
and okay, two more things:
a lot of these are gay. that’s given. becauase i find, as i have mentioned on stream before, a lot of problems with reader fanfics. so gay fanfics is just easier to… meet my needs most times. otherwise i’m overly critical. (it takes a lot for a reader fanfic to properly satisfy me)
a lot of these are from ao3. because a) the fanfic is dirtier there. and b) i like the formatting and c) the fanfic is mostly gay there.
also, @hoseoksadamsapple is such an amazing blog for fake snaps, even though they don’t write fanfics, i visit that blog every single day and look at everything like crazy cause hot damn. that’s a rec like crazy.
aaand, i know that this is mostly just straight up smut, cause i figure that’s what you guys are talking about, but i know a lot of you love to dabble in the au’s, soo…
There’s this brilliant writer. (Personally I hate the format of AFF but that’s the only thing I had to link here) this is au’s on top of au’s. it’s perfect. my personal favourite is Order of the Wolf, so if you’re gonna read any, start with that one.
okay, i think that’s it for now. you have no clue how fucking long this post took me. but it was worth it. i hope you enjoy the shameless filth, babes.
Pairings: Key/Jonghyun, Onew/Key, mentioned Key/Taemin & Minho/Jonghyun Genre: Smut, Angst Word Count: 4, 027 Warnings: Omegaverse, mentions of m!preg, swearing, descriptive sex (no smut this chapter tho but sex is discussed) Summary: Love can be hard to define.
look who finally wrote the 3rd chapter. this bitch.
also: look which character finally shows up.
“Can you pass me the shampoo? It’s the pink bottle.
Jinki, nodding, reaches behind himself to grab the bottle and pass it to Kibum, who mutters a soft thank you.
It’s late Monday evening and Kibum’s heat faded less than an hour ago. He isn’t entirely certain how he ended up showering with Jinki. Not that it’s strange—Jinki had spent the last nearly twenty-four hours buried in Kibum’s ass with little break, after all. But it is certainly awkward. Jinki is awkward. He had been awkward before the sex, during it, and even now is keeping his elbows tucked tightly against his side to keep from disturbing Kibum.
“You can relax a little,” Kibum says. “It’s okay if you bump into me or something.”
Jinki blinks at him and hesitates for a bit before lowering his hands. He probably had not realized how tense he was until Kibum had pointed it out. “S-sorry.”
Kibum pops open the bottle of shampoo and squeezes some out onto his hand. As he massages the soap into his scalp, his eyes meet Jinki’s. Jinki looks away first, his gaze dropping to the tile floor. Kibum holds back a sigh.
Yesterday had been not only his first time with an Alpha, but his first time having sex with a stranger, yet he has enough common sense to realize the oddities of Jinki’s behavior. Whether it is due to Jinki’s natural personality or something deeper, however, Kibum is unsure.
All chaptered stories are complete unless stated otherwise. If there is a chaptered story linked to livejournal, I have not provided links to every single chapter, only the first chapter. The rest of the chapters can be found on the author’s journal (usually easily found in their masterlist if they have one). Most aren’t in any particular order (but I will put my favorite chaptered stories at the top). Anything with a heart next to it is an absolute must read. I tried to put genres and warnings on all that needed them, but some of these are very old and I don’t have time to read every single one of them again, so I’m sorry if I miss something! I’ll be updating this frequently^^
Fandoms listed (in this order): SHINee, VIXX, DBSK, Super Junior, Infinite, BTS, Marvel, Fullmetal Alchemist, Danny Phantom, Teen Titans, Free!, Attack on Titan
Do you know if any good fan fictions have been written about goblin ?
Ah… Surprisingly most of them just either started or have yet to start - but there’s not a lot of fan fics of Goblin yet since the drama is still ongoing (perhaps people will start to write more once the drama finishes?). It also depends on what you’re looking for: canon relationships, non-canon relationships, etc. Most fan fiction stories I’ve seen are either Kim Shin x Grim Reaper or Kim Shin x Reader, which I don’t really read because I’m not invested in those pairings (as much as I love Gong Yoo… it just seems weird for me to read a fan fiction of a real life person paired with me haha). Particularly for Goblin, I much prefer the canon relationships, lol. But I have read some Kim Shin x GR and Kim Shin x Reader stories… cause why not? They’re very fun to read! ^^
These are some that I’ve read and please check them out! I’ve organized them by genre and pairing to suit your needs/tastes. I think it’s wonderful how people write fan fics and they are the MVPs to fulfill our desires that the drama doesn’t give to us - whether it be canon relationships, non-canon, etc.
Genre: General/Fluff (the cute and bubbly stuff for your happy needs)
In a city where angels are overthrown by devils with ugly minds and beautiful faces, two souls that are no saints fell in to each other. Nothing like tornado or volcano can play the role of their chaos. Nothing like Romeo or Juliet could come close mimicking their love. The forbidden bond told in the same old tales and songs kindled like wild fire every time their lips touched.
This is a tale of their own, a tale that stirs the anger of the gods above.
“There is a tin of letters tucked into his chest pocket, his heart aches
for home, and all that is getting Bard through the stinking mess that is
this war is the thought of his children laughing and happy, picking
flowers in Thranduil’s gardens.”

brown. that was the colour of the eyes of the boy standing across the counter from jinki. actually, they were probably more hazel. or chocolate. or… jinki blinked, suddenly realising the boy’s lips were moving.
•••Her Knight In Shining Armour••• by @ah-maa-zing ‘John Diggle is distraught when he learns about the accident. When he rushes to the hospital minutes after Oliver’s frantic call, Lyla can taste the panic on his lips as he kisses her goodbye, and she can see it on the shaky hand he runs over Sara’s head. She’s worried too – Felicity has become a friend, but she knows that for John, she’s so much more than that. She’s family.’[x]
Jeezus. Put down whatever you’re doing and read this. Eerie and flat out amazing, I didn’t even realize it until I stopped reading, but I legitimately felt like I was in the story. Not in the usual way either. I was actually somewhat frightened for my life. It’s not horror, more of a take on biblical plagues. Really, an amazing read I’m not likely to forget.
When a pair of hunters on the eastern coast witness the arrival of a very disturbing omen, it isn’t long before the news hurtles across the country, piquing the interest—and fear—of people everywhere. In a matter of days, the new, safe world that Sam, Dean, and Castiel have been inhabiting is flipped upside-down. Something enormous is coming—and this time, it’s something they can’t fight.
Faced with rapidly diminishing prospects, holed up in a tiny, empty Nebraska town, they are forced to confront fears, secrets, and emotions that might have otherwise never seen the light of day. It seems every story must end somehow, and the only thing that remains to be done is to make the most of what little time they have left.
Ok, this right here is my all-time favorite. These two are amazing with their work. A lot of Destiel fics are cute, but completely unrealistic in how they get together. This work is as close to canon-compliant as you can get (they started this series a while ago and have actually predicted events that occurred in the TV series). It starts at the end of Season 6 and features human Cas. Basically Bobby, Sam, Dean and Cas living at Bobby’s, but so much more. I’m honestly in love with this series and drop everything the second they update. Dean and Cas’ relationship is beautiful here and true to both their actual personalities.
Some of their summaries:
-The writing was on the wall—and now Dean just had to try and understand it. A Post-Season Six alternate universe, going a different route from what happened in Season Seven and exploring a long and difficult relationship between Dean and Castiel. Canon-compliant up through the finale of Season Six, with some Season Seven thrown in.
-Cas copes—or rather, doesn’t—with guilt and his new humanity. Bobby and Sam try to help him deal, and Dean is still hiding.
Almost everyone in the fandom knows this one, and I will be 100% honest, do not read this unless you WANT to cry. I know, you think I’m exaggerating, I thought that about what other people were saying. Trust me, I’m about as stoic as they come. In fact, before Twist and Shout I had been considering the reality that I had misplaced my tear ducts, but damn did they come back with a vengeance when I read this thing. Chapter 11 left me a sobbing mess and I don’t think I’ll ever be completely the same. I can’t listen to Elvis anymore. That being said, it really is a terrific read, just only do so if you’re ready to: cry, change, frantically slap the skip button whenever Elvis comes on.
Here’s how they describe their heart wrenching terror (I’m not going to lie, I had a tear in my eye just re-reading this damn summary, wtf did they do to me?) :
What begins as a transforming love between Dean Winchester and Castiel Novak in the summer of 1965 quickly derails into something far more tumultuous when Dean is drafted in the Vietnam War. Though the two both voice their relationship is one where saying goodbye is never a real truth, their story becomes fraught with the tragedy of circumstance. In an era where homosexuality is especially vulnerable, Twist and Shout is the story of the love transcending time, returning over and over in its many forms, as faithful as the sea.
Stand By Me:
Stand By Me is one of those authors that a) if they haven’t already been published, they damn well should be. b) you just want to stand near in the hopes that their talents will even barely rub against your consciousness. I don’t have the words to describe what Stand By Me does with words, but I wish I did!
A fic about mining… mining. Seriously? If you told me I’d fall in love with a mining fic I’d ask you who you were because I definitely don’t know you or vice versa, yet here we are. I’m not surprised I end up loving it though. This author could probably write about peoples’ bowel movements and it’d still be awesome. An eerie story with a beautiful relationship between Dean and Cas. Bonus points to Sam and Jess who just work so perfectly. Not my favorite of Stand By Me’s works, but definitely worth the read.
By the year 1972 the State of Kentucky had produced over 100 million tons of bitumionous coal. When Castiel, the new continuous miner operator at the Venus coal camp’s no. 6 mine, begins to sense something strange is happening underground, the lines between the possible and the impossible begin to blur, and Dean may be the only one who is willing to believe him.
Road Trip with Sam, Dean, and Cas. Hauntingly beautiful prose and a ridiculously refreshing plot, I don’t think I’ve ever read something quite like it, though the bones are the same.
Something in the world is waking up.
It isn’t long before it’s brought to the attention of the Winchesters and Castiel: miracles are spreading across the country, the paranormal seems to be shrinking back on itself—and it all has something to do with the missing prayer book of a traveling preacher who died over a century ago.
Dean is convinced it’s all the lead-up to another Apocalypse; Sam and Castiel aren’t so sure. Regardless, it sends them out on a less-than-typical road-trip, following the Mississippi and remnants of a very old story that seems increasingly to call to them. And along the way the trio learn much more about themselves—and the consequences and origins of love—than they’d ever have anticipated.
I just really loved this story. The writing doesn’t make me want to frame the prose in my living room or anything, but the characters are just so real and the relationships between Sam, Cas, and Dean are heart warming.
Dean’s life at twenty-four makes him feel like he’s forty—he works two jobs to help pay bills for his house and put his genius little brother through private school, and has spent six years (on and off, let’s be honest) working on his mechanical engineering degree at KU. With so much of his life devoted to his family, Dean has little time in his schedule for class and no time for social interaction. Then, while getting his classes together for the fall, he finds himself in a do-or-die situation: He must take his last literature class now, his spring already filled with those left for his major…except that none of the English classes will fit his schedule.
This is how Dean grovels and begs Dr. Castiel Milton to make a special arrangement for him, and Dr. Milton does.
