Rec: No. 6
Title: No. 6
Author: Asano Atsuko
Format: Anime series
Published/Free: Published
Length: 11 episodes
Status: Complete
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Uh…blood (not a consistent amount or anything, there are just a couple scenes toward the end that get a little rough) oh and subtitles
Link: http://myanimelist.net/anime/10161/No.6
Summary: No.6 is a utopia, there is no poverty, there are no conflicts, there are no problems. You will live happily and peacefully within these safe walls, and you will wear this lovely bracelet that is your identity. Oh, and one last thing: if you doubt us, we won’t hesitate to eliminate you. Ignorance really is bliss.

On his 12th birthday, Shion hides and helps an injured Nezumi (“Rat”), a national criminal. This leads to being stripped of his rights to live in the upscale part of the city and qualification to enter higher education. There’s a time skip, and suddenly it’s four years later and instead of studying ecology, Shion’s a park worker. After witnessing two people strangely die, he’s taken away by the Bureau of Safety. At that point, he’s rescued and whisked away to the Western District to discover the truth about No.6.

Review: So i watched this without knowing it had slashy goodness and ohmagahdddd. It blew me away. This is not something to watch if you are looking for sexy timez but if you want a story, a great animation job, a dash of dystopia, and two boy kisses that make you work for it - don’t hesitate, watch. I was utterly enthralled throughout the series. The ending is a little weak, but that last few seconds gripped my heart, man. Just keep in mind I would have warned you if there was character death and ya’ll be fine.

P.S. Things that confused me a little at the beginning. Depending on where you watch the first episode, they call the character “Rat” by the name of “Mouse”. Just keep in mind they are the same person. I was also confused at first as to why the characters in the first episode didn’t look like characters in the pictures on the reviews and stuff. Its because there is a 4 year time skip between the first and second episode…and other plot relevant things.

MOVIE RECOMMENDATION: WOLF CHILDREN AME AND YUKI
(written by Lotta)

“Wolf Children Ame and Yuki” is by far one of my favourite creations ever made in the world of film. I first watched it one night 2 years ago, after seeing a gif of it I liked on tumblr. I didn’t know what it was about, how long it went for or if I’d even like it. It was a spur of the moment kind of thing. So I cuddled up in bed, with hot tea and began a film which left me speechless. Throughout the duration of the movie my jaw just kept on dropping more and more, tears streaming down my face as I was sobbing profusely, plus the occasional sniffle and smile. 

This movie truly let me feel all emotions, from inflamed anger to sadness to utter happiness. The characters are so very relate-able, and by the end of it they grew on me, forever staying in my heart.

Read on to find out more about the film (info + trailer + extras):

queerasfucklupin’s mega wolfstar fic rec in celebration of 2000 followers

so like i should probably apologise for the fact that this fic rec is mainly au’s but i’m always a slut for au’s what can i say

this rec is for the fics i re-read all the time and are my favourites. it’s by no means saying that these are the best fics out there so pls don’t be offended if i haven’t included your fic or a fic that you think is amazing! also i’ve definitely left some fics out by accident so yeah

also i just want to apologise in advance for my descriptions. i can’t seem to find any other description than ‘this is so cute and fluffy gah’ but so many of these fics are just so cute and make me melt inside so i can’t help it tbh it’s the writer’s fault for making the fic so cute

important note: please make sure to read the tags/warnings of these fics before you read bc some do feature things that may be triggering

Non AU

Multi Chaptered 

Completed

+ Of Seducing Moony and Murdering Lily by Bottled Chaos - Sirius fancies Remus and goes to Lily for help. She gives him some tips and hints to gain his wolf. Chaos ensues. FUNNY, FLUFFY SLASH. MWPP era.

i remember loving this fic back when i read it as a 15 yo, and i still love it! it’s super funny and cute and fluffy. the classic sort of mwpp wolfstar fic

+ Nameless by Avahin - Sirius has never cared for Remus. In fact, the only reason why they were even “friends” has been because of James. But when fifth year comes around and Remus has suddenly changed, according to James, can Sirius still say he doesn’t care for Remus?

this fic is adorable and it has such a good story line, i’ve read it so many times it’s getting ridiculous. but seriously read this fic!

+ Chasing Love by Children_of_the_Shadows - Just because you’re in a relationship doesn’t mean you’re cemented for life. Remus suffers from issues of sexy, Sirius from general melodrama, James from best friend withdrawals, and nothing says disowned like meeting your boyfriend’s very gay parents.

i love this?? the characterisation is soooo on point and whilst it’s super fluffy it still shows the anxieties you can get in relationships and stuff which is so gr8 in a fic

+ Summer Nights by QuirkQuirk - It’s the summer holidays – the last one of their Hogwarts years – and they’re going to make it count.

+ The Prettiest Star by Totally Raven - COMPLETED: It’s the 70s and love is brewing in Gryffindor tower. Remus and Sirius can only hide their feelings for so long. A tribute fic to ‘Fairy Boys’.

WIP

+ These Four Kings by escribo - (No description)

+ Remus Lupin: BAMF by Sasparilla123 - He’s slightly insane, addicted to chocolate and allergic to jam. This is the story of the real Remus Lupin. Marauders-era, eventual slash. (“Are we talking midget rabbits? Are those even real?” asked Sirius. Remus fixed him with an exasperated look. “The term is 'vertically challenged’,” he said reprovingly. “We’ve been over this.”)

okay i’ve cheated, this isn’t a wolfstar fic. but it has badass remus!!! like what more do you want in life??

+ No Mum, He Really Is My Boyfriend by showmeyourtardis - If Remus has to go on one more date set up by his mother, he will maul his own face off. It was nothing against the boys, they were… Well, they were horribly dull, but it was mostly the werewolf thing. So when an escape plan, in the form of Sirius Black, presents itself, Remus is more than happy to take it.

this has a really cute story line, it gets kinda angsty but i’m all about that angst life so i’m into it

+ Casting Moonshadows by Moonsign - Lonely and outcast by his classmates, Remus wishes on a moonshadow for a friend who understands him. To his amazement his wish is answered not once, but three times, by his former enemies, the Marauders.

One shot

+ Daft Mutts and Hogwarts Gossip by Children_of_the_ShadowsGossip isn’t a new thing in Hogwarts, but when it transforms Remus into a heartthrob that all the girls and a few boys want to have a go at, things start to get nasty with Sirius. Remus just wants answers and Sirius is too daft a mutt to give him any.

this is probably my fave non au one shot tbh i love everything about it, it’s angsty and fluffy and amazing

+ Sometime Around Midnight by Eligh - Based of the song by the Airborne Toxic Event. Sirius and Remus broke up months ago, but Sirius is miserable, missing something. Oneshot, M for Sirius/Remus slash.

+ Five Times Sirius Black Interrupted Remus Lupin’s Dates and One Time He Didn’t by mrs_jack_turner - Sometimes, Remus just wants alone time, or at least time away from the Marauders. Sirius isn’t so keen on letting him.

Once there, Remus finds himself rooming with the devilishly handsome bad-boy, Sirius Black. Will he give in to temptation? Could the attraction he feels for Sirius be more than physical? Non-Magical 1970s AU

this fic is probably my favourite of all time. it’s just got such a great character build up and i love the way you see sirius and remus’ relationship grow

+ The Door Through The World by Amuly Growing up under the stern hand of Walburga Black was nothing less than torture for young Sirius. Until one day, he found a small, forgotten door, hidden in a store room. It was through this door that Sirius discovered a whole other world, and a whole other life.

i only read this one recently for some reason but wow it’s amazing. it’s such such such a brilliant concept and such a beautiful story

+ TransFigured by picascribit - We thought you might be a werewolf,“ said Sirius.
"What?” Remus almost laughed at the absurdity.
“Last year. James and I thought — but the dates didn’t quite match up. With the full moons, I mean.”
“Well, I’m not.”
“I know. All I meant was, we thought you might be, and we still wanted to be friends. Whatever you’re not telling us — how much worse can it be?”

words cannot describe my love for this fic. it features trans!remus and is just beautiful and heartbreaking at times and man this needs a movie tbh

+ This Is You and Me by Children_of_the_Shadows - The first time Charlus Potter met Remus Lupin, he was reminded of a past he was trying to forget.
The first time Dorea Potter met Remus Lupin, she was reminded of her own limitation.
The first time James Potter met Remus Lupin, he was indifferent.
The first time Sirius Black met Remus Lupin, he threw a punch to his face.

okay okay so this is like one of my absolute favourite fics ever. i’ve read it a few times and the story is just so gripping! it’s quite angsty which i also love in a fic tbh

+ Hairy Snout, Human Heart by Wuff - When Remus is sixteen, he is finally allowed to go to Hogwarts. But life is not as easy as that if you don’t know how to behave around other teenagers and, worse, if you are bullied by a gang led by the infamous Sirius Black. 

this fic is one that i’ve liked for sooo long, since i was a tiny wolfstar shipper aw. it has the perfect amount of fluff and angst and everything u want in a fic. the sort of fic that makes u cry ur eyes out but in a good way you know?

+ A Cure For Nightmares by picascribit - 1976-78: There’s a mysterious new boy at St Godric’s boarding school, and Sirius can’t stop thinking about him, but the secret Remus is keeping might break Sirius’s heart.

a really really beautifully written angsty fic perfect for all your angsty fic needs

+ Black by Dragon Mistress - Remus Lupin is a shy, innocent London schoolboy. Sirius Black is a intimidating, mysterious young man with a startling background and attitude to spare. When the two cross paths, it becomes a matter of fate… and obsession.

a really cute fic. great for if you fancy something fluffy.

+ Rebuilding Block Castles by sopdetly - A number of chance encounters with an intriguing man named Remus Lupin sets Sirius off on a path to fall in love, and to learn what it is to fight for the people he loves.

i remember being absolutely obsessed with this fic when i first read it. it’s a proper feel good fic i love it

Slughorn’s Sanitarium for Troubled Boys by MelloPie - AU - Rated M for later chapters. Sirius is sent to a mental institution after the ultimate prank on his parents fails. Here he meets Remus, a strange boy accused of murder. Can Sirius solve the mystery and save Lupin’s life? And will Remus let him?

this fic is really quite dark but i like it bc it’s a really good mystery sort of story. it’s really well written as well, reading this was like the first time i realised fanfiction could be just as well written as books

+ Remus Lupin’s Guide to Successful Courting by Children_of_the_Shadows - Remus has lived for twenty five years now. Due to his incapability to emote or feel many complicated things at the same time, he has always maintained a straight face, his facial features sitting at an angle of approximately a hundred and seventy four point two d though he has practiced it many times before in front of the mirror, Remus has truly never smiled.

this fic is brilliant. completely original, hilarious, sad, fluffy and amazingly written. just wow

+ The Pursuit of Slow Realisation by Children_of_the_Shadows - Remus has always had bad taste in men and he tops the polls when he starts to find Sirius Black attractive. Sirius is pompous, loud, plays horrible pranks and is ridiculously flirtatious. Worst of all, he is Remus’s best friend. Muggle AU.

another amazing fic by children of the shadows (are you starting to realise who my fave fic author is yet aha). so incredibly fluffy and sad and another one where i can feel sorry for remus which is my fave thing to do

+ Likewise Variable by ssstrychnine - James has plans, Peter is the nurse, Sirius keeps fake blood up his sleeves, and Remus just tries to stay alive.

i remember absolutely adoring this fic when i read it and i was super excited whenever it got updated, definite one to read

WIP

+ Text Talk by merlywhirls - Sirius is in boarding school, Remus is in hospital, and they don’t know each other until Sirius texts the wrong number.

gahh this is just the perfect fic. it’s a completely original concept with loads of fluff and a great story line

Sirius Black is an immature twenty-something, living with a couple other immature twenty-somethings. Both are obsessed with the same obscure book, which becomes their coping mechanism for navigating their instant and torrid love affair. Life, they discover, is precarious at best, but from each other, they learn how to make it something that’s worth living.

i love love love the characterisation of remus and sirius in this fic, they’re both so precious aw. such a good story, one of those fics where you get super excited about an update

+ Queer As Day by philiatran - Sirius Black, a hopelessly queer boy with hopelessly queer friends, has two things.1. A penchant for photography.and 2. A tumblr blog dedicated to picture after picture of Remus Lupin.

i absolutely love the setting of this fic and the queer representation is just…. *wipes away tear* everything you need in your life

+ Aesthetic: Trash Boys by Emaly and merlywhirlsA story that starts with dick pics but is really about friendship, falling in love, and summer hols fun.

great characterisation, all the characters are so loveable! and this is another fic that is so on point with queer representation which makes me so happy

+ The Holiday by AngelElleth and jarofhearts - When Remus gets his heart broken shortly before Christmas, the best thing that happens to him is a stranger asking for a house exchange. Like that he ends up in California, and if anyone had told him that it would change his life, Remus would have laughed. Until that’s exactly what happens. - The Holiday AU

i loveeee the film the holiday so this fic is perf. it’s so cute and i just love the story line

One Shot 

+  Three Card Monte by enjambament - In which you can’t cheat an honest man, or, in which Remus and Sirius steal a piano.

okay so i love the film ocean’s eleven so this fic is perfect for me. everyone is just so badass in this fic i love it. it’s also really well written, definitely read this tbh

+ The London Underground Book of Love by Children_of_the_Shadows - The cardinal rule of the London Underground is to never, ever make eye contact. It is a rule that, among many others, Sirius tends to follow despite his otherwise rebellious, non-rule-following nature. So the first time he makes eye contact with a human being in the subway comes as much of a shock to him as anyone else. Especially when he’s unable to look away.

this fic is just so so so cute and fluffy. it’s such an orginal concept that i haven’t ever read before in a fic so you should definitely read it

+ Some Dream By Day by remus23 - “Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” - TE Lawrence.

i’ve read this fic loads of times, it’s quite sad but it’s really beautifully written

+ The Electric Fizzing Prick Pistols, or Whatever by whitmans_kiss - Everyone is born with Words on their arm that connect them to their Soulmate. James finds his, Sirius had everything figured out back in First Year, Peter doesn’t talk to girls anyway, and Remus thinks he’d very much just like to put his earmuffs back on and disappear.

soulmate aus are always really cute to me but this fic is especially adorable gahhh

so there are a few one shots in this fic, most of them i haven’t read in forever but the first one ‘Red Hood and His Wolf’ is just sooooooo cute omg i can’t

+ 500 Miles I’m Coming Home To You by museme87When Sirius Black left Manchester six years ago for a record deal, he also left behind Remus, his longtime boyfriend. Now they have a chance to be reunited, but Remus isn’t sure he’s willing to make amends with the man who sold their love for stardom.

+ The Cute Clarinet Boy by hgregwallflower - Sirius works at a music store and develops a crush when a cute clarinet player named Remus walks in to buy reeds.

awww remus and sirius are literally my children in the fic, it’s just so frikin cute like wtf 

+ Under my Umbrella by NeonDomino - Sirius shares his umbrella with a stranger at a bus-stop. One-shot. WolfStar. Muggle!AU. Nothing to do with the song at all!

neondomino is the absolute best at writing cute little au fics, but this is my fave of their works bc it’s so fluffy and cute

+ Winning by TopKat AU, present day; Sirius is an olympic swimmer, Remus is a gymnast.

omg i remember reading this during the olympics and thinking ‘this is everything i’ve ever wanted’ and it’s still everything i want in my life

+ Tom Jones (A Love Story) by wook77 - The story in which Remus is a street musician, Sirius is a self-important banker that spends more on his coat than Remus makes in a month, James is James and Peter likes Tom Jones.

ugh i’ve always loved this au so much, it’s such a cute story and busker remus is my aesthetic for real 

+ It Happened Like This by eprimeAU. Remus was never bitten. His time at Hogwarts is marked by a somewhat antagonistic friendship with Sirius as they both compete over the years for James’ attention.

I know you have a magic Stiles rec list but can you rec any fics where Deaton teaches him?

A Thousand Fiery Suns of Angst - Just Press Play by Apocryphal (1/1 | 20,934 | Teen and up) 

All Stiles wants from life is to learn to control his magic, keep his grades up, and not die horribly while saving Beacon Hills from supernatural threats. It’s all going pretty well until Derek Hale, werewolf extraordinaire, has to go and ask him on a date. That asshole.


Patterns of Intention by drunktuesdaze (1/1 | 17,085 | Explicit)

Derek looked like the stuff of his deepest fantasies. His shirt was rumpled where Stiles had his hands in it, and he was breathing hard as well, chest heaving. His eyes—his eyes were glazed over and he looked stunned, like he’d been—like Stiles had—

“No,” Stiles said, blood draining from his face. The word was croaky and felt like it had to be wrenched out of his chest. “God, no.”


Maybe Then A Witch Could Believe In The Moon by kellifer-k (1/1 | 10,712 | Teen and up)

Okay, I get it. You were just asserting dominance. I can relate to that. I do know Derek.


Professional Werewolf Witch by actualbird (1/1 | 5,133 | Gen)

The one where Derek Hale is a Professional Werewolf Witch who owns a magic shop and Stiles fails at being smooth on a regular basis.


In Sanguinem Scriptum Est by Secondstar (2/2 | 31,346 | Explicit)

In order to stop a new onslaught of nightmares from plaguing him, Stiles decides to become an emissary. No longer defenseless, he begins to realize that not everything is as it seems.

jamestwinchester asked:

I didn't read Harry Potter back when I was a kid (even though I was in the right age bracket, theoretically), but I recently decided it was time and I'm currently in the middle of the third book. My question is, since I can already tell I'm a stinking pile of Drarry trash, are there some like...quintessential fics that I should read? I'm so late to the party and so old (almost 30!!!), and there is such a huge body of work that searching on AO3 is pretty daunting to be honest.

I don’t have specifics, but here are some rec lists

makoharu + makoto fic recs

Ok this is about 100 years late but a while ago, a new reader asked me for platonic MakoHaru or general Makoto-centric fic recs. This request later expanded to include romantic as well.

…So, basically, all the MakoHarus, but the background of the question explains why I’ve broken down this list the way I have ^^

I’m always pulling links out of my memory/bookmarks to share with people on the fly, so this seemed like a good opportunity to have it all in one place!


Romantic MakoHaru

heart’s departure by tothemoon
I love everything by tothemoon. Basically, just plunder her whole library, but this is her magnum opus, an epic magic realism AU about Haru disappearing. (This is a really bad summary of HD but I can’t say anything more without giving the plot away.)

2 / 13189000 by tothemoon
Slow build, very satisfying Tokyo fic.

Catch A Falling Star by hoshruba
No MakoHaru rec list would be complete without this classic. AU, will tear your heart out (and repair it slowly, lovingly).

The Mating Habits Of Snails by Shimegami
Makoto and Haru are aggravatingly slow at making things happen. Rin tries to help. Any MakoHaru fic that features Rin in a semi-starring role automatically gains 1,000 points in my book, and this one is hilarious.

goldfish
Angst. Pain. Feels. Illness. Avoid if you can’t handle any of these red flags. But seriously so well-written. I always pull this out when asked for MakoHaru angst.

walking after you by orihime
25 lives MakoHaru reincarnation AU. That is all I have to say. /lies down

La Confidenza by gliss
19th Century historical AU + classical music AU + artist Haru AU is basically everything in this universe that I love rolled up into one stunningly written fic. Warning for Major Character Death and period-appropriate homophobia.

you know where to find me by recluse
Another getting-together future fic with generous amounts of Matsuoka Rin sass. Has one of my favourite lines of any fic ever, where Rin tells Makoto that he’d be good for Haru and make him “less of a dick”.

The Camera Loves You (And So Do I) by meiface
All of meiface’s fics are great, and this one’s no exception. Makoto does some modelling for his university magazine as a favour to his friend. Haru is driven out of his mind with distraction. Rin tries to give advice. All in all, love.

Platonic/Gen-leaning MakoHaru

with honors by buttface
Makoto sits for university entrance exams, and Haru finds the right moment to tell him about his decision to go to Tokyo. Heartfelt friendship feels.

the twist in sheets by serkestic
S2E11-inspired MakoHaru fic, flashbacks and nostalgia from their childhood.

waves break, the ocean goes on by miaoujones
Makoto and Haru have a poignant conversation about their past, about things they couldn’t say to each other, and moving forward. Very slight past KisuMako.

Other Pieces to the Puzzles by miaoujones
Speculative what-if fic where Makoto and Haru deal with the possibility of Haru’s parents wanting to sell the Nanase house. Very sweet, and wistful.

Gen Makoto

harbour by lisettedelapin
lisettedelapin is one of the most poetic and beautiful writers in the fandom. This little genfic, Makoto pondering his friendships and leaving Iwatobi, is a gem.

mister coherent by mosaicos
Okay I know I’ve sung the praises of this fic in my gen fic rec list but!! IT GOES HERE TOO because mosaicos just updated it with Chapter 2 which is Makoto’s chapter, a glorious 8,000 words of Future Makoto gen POV, please read.

Landslide by thimble
Makoto-centric AU where he picks up guitar while young and becomes a musician. His friendships in this are lovely. Implied RinHaru.

birthright by bluewalk
Makoto and the twins. Big brotherly feels. A LOT of them. Bring tissues and prepare for heart clenching.

you fill my lungs with sweetness by lisettedelapin
A really sweet, lighthearted piece about Makoto, his love for flowers, and his friends’ love for him.

We’re in the Belly of the Beast by whythehandbasket
This one’s a series of character studies for each of the five main boys, and their narratives weave together in the most eloquent and thoughtful of ways. Really unique. Makoto’s is in one of the chapters, though I won’t tell you which one so as not to spoiler :)
