humbug to christmas

anonymous asked:

Okay, so I'm kinda new to the fandom and shipping drarry, so what would you say are the fics that everyone must read? I've read turn and chaos theory already, and I loved both of them, but the number of fics out there is kinda overwhelming so I'd appreciate help with knowing where to start? Thank you so much and I love your blog!!

I have a little secret project I’m working on that will DEFINITELY help you out with this, but until then, I can give you a couple of my favs!

Please fire me. I asked to quit my job a week before I go to college, so that I can pack and spend holiday time with my family. My boss said ‘Read my lips: that’s what weekends are for.’ I now have one day to pack all of my belongings before departing for college in January.

Hi my name is Ebenezer Scrooge and I have thin white hair and a blak hat and icy blue eyes like urchins tears and a lot of people tell me I look like a cruel old man (hint: i am and if u dont like it get te fuck outa here) . I’m not related to Jacob Marley and im glad because he majorly fucking sucks and hes dead. I I have pale white skin. I’m a dick(in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love money and I hate Christmas. For example today I was wearing a black top hat with a matching black coat. I was walking outside town. It was Christmas Eve. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of happy people stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them. Bah Humbug

Please fire me.  This was the employee Christmas party: employees were asked to make cookies so all the managers could taste them for a cookie judging contest.  Hardly a party when we were asked to drop them off at the managers’ office before starting work.

Humbug (A Christmas Tale)
By Organization for Transformative Works

Summary: Draco has been taking his casual relationship with Harry for granted. Visits from four key ghosts the night before Christmas just might shake up his priorities in life.

Review: Oh wow this… this is the fic of your dreams! So this is a version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol but with a Harry Potter twist, where Draco is forced to realise some of the feelings he’s blocking himself from.

Beautifully angsty yet backed by wonderful characterisations, plot and vulnerability to make this such a fulfilling and touching read. And god DAMN the sex was so hot and real and agonizingly perfect, perfectly mingled with their non-sexual moments. Even their undeliberate touches, words and interactions that were so tender and sweet.

Their emotions so life like it was almost visual. You can almost feel the shifting emotions within Draco as he comes face to face with himself and his insecurities. It’s truly heart breaking at times but incredibly fixes it right back again at the end and even shines it up a little bit!

Please fire me. Last Christmas, one of the VPs in my office gave me a present. It was an old garden lamp full of dead bugs, dirt and cobwebs.  This year, she gave me a used scent stick diffuser. Does she think I can’t tell the difference between old and new?

My favouite lines of “Humbug”

aka Adam’s dorkiness

  • “Or does she already own way too many scarves”
  • Yeah, how ‘bout I jump out the window?
    Singing 'Joy to the World’ face down in the snow!
  • I’ll wrap myself in paper and sit under the tree
    'Cause the best gift I can give you is this heart inside of me! 
  • I wander around the store again and again
    But all I do is shrug
  • (Huh. I hate shopping) 

ngl i squealed because he’s such a cutie
