“When I look back on these past twelve seasons, the thing I will remember most is all of you.Our cast and crew has been professional, dedicated, hard-working, but, most importantly, kind. No matter where our lives take us from here, we have shared something very special together. And I am so grateful for that.” - Emily Deschanel
“I just love all the people up here. They respect you, they believe in you. They support each other. And it’s such a great environment to be a part of. I was blessed to meet these people. They’ve got me through lots of stuff in my life. […] We went to war when we started this, and we’re gonna come out with the flag high. […] And I love them all.” - David Boreanaz
This isn’t a very long list; these are just the ones on my to-read list.
Also, there are some works from the included authors that I have not listed because I haven’t looked too closely into their other books, or they aren’t up my alley genre-wise. If you don’t mind female authors or authors of any other genders, feel free to check out this list.
If you have more to add, feel COMPLETELY free to reblog and do so.

I think that this right here is one of the things I love most about Killian. Because although he’s kind of arrogant when it comes to the shallow stuff like the way he looks, or the way he handles his sword, when it comes to the things that are deep inside like the hero that he has become, or his good heart within, he gets really uncomfortable with handling a compliment.
Because in opposed to knowing all his life that he’s good looking, and an amazing pirate, he kept doubting himself regarding the kind of person he was. And he was constantly feeling and having others calling him a villain. So when someone comes and sees the goodness within his heart, giving him a compliment about the kind of person that he is, he’s not too good in accepting it and it makes him feel uncomfortable. This is an unfamiliar territory for him. The same thing happened back in 3x05 when David acknowledged to the rest that Hook saved his life. Back then, and long after, you can see how embarrassed he gets by the compliments that truly matter to him. The ones he truly want to hear, but is too insecure to actually feel comfortable about hearing them.
The anon asked me to gif this specific part, which was the actual therapy session for Hook. I think what I loved most was Archie starting by calling him Killian. You can see that those who do it use it to show him how they see him as a different person now (first it was Emma, then Belle). And you can see how it is important to him to be treated like that. How it is important that David will see him like that as well.
I just loved seeing him reach out for help, he is so desperately wants to be accepted by Emma’s family because he knows how much they mean to her, and how much they also mean to him. He won over Emma’s heart like he promised he would, but he needs to win over theirs too. I think that’s what season 6 is about for Hook. To win the heart of the people he came to cherish aside from Emma and to prove his love to them as well. I’m so glad he has Archie which is kind of an outsider to guide him, especially in the next episode, which we already know he will confine with him over the new revealing.
