hi! that fic rec list you wrote out was very thorough and i was wondering is you could add some more! i think what the fandom needs right now is a much good fic as possible.
I agree w you, doll!! and this fandom is blessedly full of good fics (seriously I’ve read a lot of fics from a lot of fandoms and I’ve never read as many beautiful ones as I have in the CS fandom) I was asked by @e98mh for a list w a lot of Captain Ducking so I’m gonna include as much of that as possible ~previous list~
Beyond the Horizon by @alexandralyman: Princess Emma’s ship is captured by the pirate Captain Killian Jones. She offers herself for ransom in place of her crew’s safety. It’s a beautifully written story. I’ve been following it for about two yrs now and boy has it been a wild ride. It’s a moderately slow burn and the payoff is spectacular. 212k words. Rated M. Another sinfully delightful fic by the same author is Between Heaven and Hell. An angel/demon AU, Emma’s the Angel, Hook’s the demon. Full of smut and forbidden romance. 113k words. Rated M.
I am mind boggled that I somehow left @this-too-too-sullied-flesh off the last list because I mean come on how to you have a fic rec list w out her? (smdh @ myself) The Next Wounded Soul: Killian, a sailor recovering from wounds received during the war against the Dark One, is aided by a noblewoman, who’s exact identity he is unaware of. A Captain Duckling fic full of slow burn, mutual pining goodness, bedsharing and foulmouthed princess Emma. 41k words. Rated E. Also of note, possibly my favoritest smut of all time, Theoretically: Let’s just put it this way, for Emma’s 30th birthday, Killian gives a gift that she will never forget. 36k Rated E.
Walking on Waterby @msstarlight: Captain Duckling AU. Princess Emma, on her way to meet a powerful nobleman to help aid her kingdom in the ogre war, is kidnapped by…. you guessed it! pirate captain Killian Jones, set on avenging his brother’s death. Twisty and turny and the best kind of drama, that at one point, forces Killian to chose between vengeance and love. Ya wanna read it don’t ya? Some nice Captain Charming moments as well. An overall excellent fic. *side note: I wouldn’t say for certain that it was the first (I was horrible at clicking the follow button and would always have to go back and search for fics for new chaps lol) but it was definitely one of the first multi-chapter fics I started following for this pairing and it has a very special place in my heart. 138k words. Rated M.
Under the Crimson Flag by @a-fictional-life : Captain Ducking AU feat. an arguably bi Killian. Emma Swan disguises herself as a boy to escape upon the open seas but her ship crosses paths with Captain Hook’s. This is just like a really freaking good fic. I’ve read it multiple times and each time reading it is as good at the last. Family feels abound. 98k words. Rated M.
I’m gonna include some fics by @caprelloidea because by golly her writing is breathtaking. It’s captivating, her imagery lifelike, and I’m never disappointed after reading something of hers. Also, maybe an odd thing but I love her titles. Duodenary (the link to this is a stunning graphic of the story and the actual story link is attached to that but I just couldn’t not add the graphic link): A beautiful fairytale in which Killian finds himself in a place that’s existence allows for Neverland and its inhabitants’ immortality. There he meets a princess looking for help. 36k Rated M. Another notable mentionAmaranthine: The most beautiful soulmates AU you shall ever read. 41k Rated M.
As You Wish by @gentlesleaze : A PRINCESS BRIDE AU, NEED I SAY MORE? Just as lovely as the film w Bonus drama. 38k Rated T. (The only fic not rated M/E on this list; idk what that says about my tastes…)
I just want to thank every person on the list for bringing such beautiful content to such a beautiful fandom. Shipping Captain Swan would not be the same w out you guys. ♥
I’m actually yelling about the virtual self porter robinson shit. Genuinely wild. He bust out with a fuckin new release. Whole storyline n shit. Final fantasy lookin ass typeface. Edgy emo graphics. Sounding like cascada. And I fuckin love it. Take my money. God just take my god damn money. What are you doing? Idk. If I knew I would’ve said so. Damn. You got some crazy ass biblical shit? Ok cool. I don’t even care anymore bc I know damn well I’m gonna love it and pay like $50 to see that tour.
I secretly would LOVE to open an online store one day and sell happy little: buttons, phone cases, stickers, motivational graphic tees, stuff like that. If I actually put forth the effort, would anybody be interested in that?
Joseph absolutely hated when he couldn't hold his children when they were first born. He'd hold them as often as they could. When Chris was born, Joseph cried and when Mary slept that night, he'd whisper promises that he'd whisper to each of his kids the night they were born. He whispered promises of always loving them no matter who they grew up to be (I sent this to the wrong person first and want to d i e)
Oh man, that’s so cute, I love it. I have 0 experience with babies, but I do remember my dad telling me how much of a total bitch it was to cut the cords off of each of us shortly after we were born only to have us handed off to our mom directly after.
I can imagine him having a very “I JUST GOT TO TOUCH MY BABY AND NOW YOU’VE TAKEN HIM AWAY also brb gonna puke because that had no right to be so SINEWY-” reaction, and it really didn’t change each time they had kids. I also like to imagine that Christie and Christian were surprise twins?? Like maybe not because of the technology today, but like…
I can picture Joseph being the most doting husband besides Mary in the delivery room. She’s screaming, he’s freaking the fuck out, he’s lost feeling in his hand like thirty minutes ago but he’s too focused on trying to calm Mary down (and, no, it is NOT WORKING, Mary’s shouted so many expletives by this point Joseph’s considered giving up on the whole ‘swears are a sin’ thing)…An then Christie is born. A son first, and now a daughter?? He’s thrilled, but something’s different. Mary hasn’t calmed down, and the doctors rushed Christie away instead of handing it to Mary like last time.
Mary starts screaming again and Joseph just loses his shit, okay, like oh my God, is she dying?? Was Christie (or, ‘unnamed baby girl’) dying?? And then the doctor draws back with another baby in his arms. Mary’s crying but desperately asking to hold her babies at this point, just happy the ordeal is over, and Joseph’s just stunned, like, two babies?? Two more lovely children?? Chris was already his life and now he has TWO MORE BABIES?? HE SCREAMS??
And then Mary has to start telling her husband to calm down okay because now the drugs are kicking back in and the babies are fine and wow he really just needs to shut up okay, like, calm down, it’s okay, breath, just breath. She still makes fun of him to this day for freaking out, and Joseph completely agrees that he totally lost his cool and had no right to start sobbing like that. Especially since he wasn’t the one who just delivered two babies.
Every time new kids entered the house he basically spent every hour he could with them. It got to the point that Mary had to force him to leave because dammit her boobs are sore and her head hurts and he just needs to fucking?? Leave?? Oh my God. She was more than willing to let him put the babies to sleep every night, though, and go to bed early herself. She deserved the rest, and he loved getting to do it.
Well, most nights, at least. Some nights were full of equal crying from both father and children because they just…Wouldn’t…Go to sleep…And it’s two am and he has to work in the morning and he wishes he could say he regrets asking to do this…
But he doesn’t. Because he loves his kids too much, and he always will. He promised.

“What if we do? If we’re so guarded, it’s not going to be anything. Let’s do it fucking for real, Lara Jean. Let’s go all in. No more contract. No more safety net. You can break my heart. Do whatever you want with it.”
sometimes you need that extra push, sometimes you fall asleep, most times you just plain forget. you can use it for yourself. you can use if for your family members. you can even use it for pets, actually. it’s all around very useful
allows you to make user profiles (lets say you need one for you, and one for your child)
saving everything on these profiles to a cloud storage, so you can sync them across different devices
allows you to set alarms for each medication. you can specify:
the name of the medication (either the actual official name, or the purpose of it. for example: anxiety)
the time interval needed between each intake (in hours)
the amount/dose to be taken each time
other details, like if you should eat before taking it, shouldn’t drive after taking it, etc…
since they’re alarms and not notifications, even if you have your phone volume down they’ll still go off
allows you to set a certain location as your “home” location using gps. if you stray more than, say, 50 meters from “home” a notification/alarm goes off reminding you to take your meds with you.
you must mark the alarm as seen for it to stop ringing. unless you have it on snooze mode (or as i like to call it, shoosh mode)
snooze mode only becomes available to activate if:
it is between 9pm and 6am
you are away from your “home” location
if you turn it on, it’ll still send you push notifications. but since that’s a notification instead of an alarm, it has the option to vibrate instead of ring. like other notifications, it’ll depend on your phone’s volume.
if you had your app in shoosh mode and did NOT mark the notification as seen, once shoosh mode is off:
your alarm(s) will ring.
you will be notified of which meds you missed
and how much time has passed since you last took them (aka since you last marked the alarm for that medication as “seen”)
different color schemes (both for those with vision impairments/sensitivities and for aesthetics)
accessibility options (like speech to text AND text to speech)
maybe the option to display some nice message after you press the “seen” button. examples:
i hope you feel a bit better soon
maybe an option to put in custom motivational messages for yourself (or to have friends put some in for you!) cause generalized positivity doesn’t do the trick for a lot of people (myself included)
basically you just input the info that’s on the bottle and the instructions your doc told you about the meds and then the app does the rest of the work for you.
i have like, basic knowledge about coding mobile apps, so i can’t really do this all myself. but if anyone wants to and is able to take this project on legitimately, please contact me so i can be a part of the process. i can - at the very least - contribute more ideas, and also help with graphic design (since ive got professional experience doing that already). i’d love it if this could become like, an actual thing. i know it’d help a lot of people.
“Going through different phases is one of my favorite things about fashion. I love how it can mark the passage of time. It’s similar to my songs in that way—it all helps identify where I was at in different points of my life.” — @taylorswift for Vogue, May 2016
can we just collectively maybe remember that one of the most common reasons for kids to brutalize their dolls, stuffed animals, etc with often seemingly senseless glee or just nonchalance is abuse and that that can carry over to their teenage years too like… someone makes a post about how they just love beating their oc up is a pretty clear sign of unprocessed abuse in that persons life. and usually those people are YOUNG like 12-15 young. and that projection is usually not at all conscious! deeply buried trauma can cause a person to try to process it by projecting it on a non living entity…the brain wants to process a trauma but it also often wants to hide it to protect itself which can lead to things like fascination with abuse or grief or other kind of trauma… that’s also why some people seemingly for no reason are drawn to fucked up ships at a very young age….because…..you guessed it….buried trauma that the brain is now fixating on and can’t really figure out how to handle….
and honestly like…just telling those people to “stop” because it’s “creepy” or “fetishizing abuse” is pretty fucking shitty and shows you know literally nothing about how the brain of a young human being processes abuse when they have no other outlets for it…
also like this weird “okay so then get therapy!! :// that’s not an excuse!!!” rhetoric needs to GO because suggesting that the person takes that destructive energy out on non living things by writing about it or destroying things is one of the things therapists suggest to manage those urges….like 1. it’s pointless and puritanian, 2. it’s really fucking inaccessible considering most of these people are CHILDREN that depend on their parents/guardian for transportation and paying for said therapy and often those guardians/parents ARE THE ABUSERS or protecting the abuser, and 3. its quite literally just fear mongering because any therapist will tell you that it’s way better to direct your bad feelings into writing about them than into like idk abusing actual people
like i mean there’s also just people that like reading or writing fucked up shit. i’m kinda tired of this “you can’t write about graphic murder bc it means you’re a murderer yourself :///“ shit like ok sorry i guess ill just burn all my stephen king books??? bye the entire genre of horror??? the appeal of fictional traumatizing shit to a lot of people is the fact that it’s fictional and safe to explore. i love horror, that doesn’t mean i want to….murder someone irl….in fact i can’t even watch true crime without crying……
tldr basically lol stop being assholes when you clearly have no idea what you’re talking about also i’m really tired and now also triggeredt
I’m 10 away from 300 so I gotta get this out quick before I hit it and have to make a new one
