i just reread the whole damn series

anonymous asked:

Idk if it'd be too much to ask but off the top of your head could you give us a few of your fave writers? Ty!

do you mean fic writers… or novel writers…??? cuz I don’t read books at all (haha…) tho my fav fic writers are all klance writers and from the top of my head they are… 

I have a whole bunch of favorite FICS by authors but they’re all one hit wonders (as in they didn’t write anything else?? sigh) 

anonymous asked:

Do you have any fic requests? Anything you want us to read by the other admins or some tumblr friends?

I sure do nonnie! Sit tight and buckle in this is going to be long (maybe) I’ll start with friends and pick some of my favs from them okay? Everyone I’m picking I promise you should read every thing they’ve written all of it is amazing and honestly I personally believe some fics should be turned into movies. Anyway these particular fics have changed the way I read and write fanfiction so you should also follow these blogs (all the admins I’m about to shout out are amazing and kind) If you want me to do another and separate them by groups and genres then I can do that as well. 

By @kpoppantydrop: A Rose Coloured Rogue that has four parts to it. It’s a SHINee fic but features Jimin (BTS), Wonho, and Xiumin written by admin Winter for Rogue’s birthday. A warning though it is smut. 

Another one is Prettiest Pink a Jin (BTS) smut by Admin Lily. It’s filth from start to finish and I love it it’s so great I think I actually blushed whilst reading it. 

Also here’s a cute as fuck Jackson (GOT7) fluff by Admin Desire called Something Good. It’s a birthday fic and it made me smile so hard whilst reading it! 

Of course I have lots of others (Their masterlist is endless you’ll be on their blog forever I promise you wont regret it.)

By @xiuminsm : Here’s a super long Yixing fic that is Royalty AU and omg its so fucking amazing, it’s titled Until Hell Freezes Over  it’s another smut but the smut is rather brief and its easy to skip over if you want to (I don’t recommend it though.) 

Another installment in the Royalty AU for EXO this is for Suho and it’s titled Bete Noir the world that Liv spins in this series is seriously breathtaking. It’s a smut (yet again, I’m sorry most of the fics will have an adult theme) but its soooo worth the read. 

By @smutfictionaddicted (also @kpopthirstaddicted) she’s moved to @writings-by-cl but a lot of her fics are on her old blogs: Crocodiles in Sin City is a fic based off the Sin City universe that became movies how friggin cool is that?! There are heavy warnings with this it’s very mature so be cautious before clicking. 

Strawberry Ice Cream is a drabble by CL based off a series by @chanyeolspout (which I’ll be linking you to as well.) I don’t usually read Chanyeol fics but its so gooodddd

By @chanyeolspout : Here’s the mini masterlist for Breeze as said above a Chanyeol fic of about nine parts you won’t regret it please read! 

In Abstenia really fucked me up like ??? Why did you do this to me??? It’s optional bias and v smutty 

Welcome Back is a Sehun oneshot with exhibitionism, lots of smut, and a fresh from tour Sehun who misses you a lot. (Just punch me in the face tbh)

By @soobadnoonecanstopher : I will ALWAYS recommend The Boxer, I laughed and cried and honestly this whole series was a fucking rollercoaster ride strap yourself in it only goes up (and down very fast) from here. Lori isn’t technically my friend (I feel bad calling her by her first name gah I’m so sorry plz don’t hate me) but I’m friends with her fics because I’ve reread them all like ten times

By the other admins: I’d recommend you read Park It (written by Takara-yeolie its a Jooheon smut and a damned good one at that) and Overlooked (written by Memesol it’s Jimin (BTS) angst lol Memesol is so great at angst I hate her)

by non-friends/tumblr famous people I wish I were friends with:

@duizhangdeluxe wrote a series for OT12 EXO and I recommend it to EVERYONE Blanc et Noir is a smut series playing around with EXO’s “powers” and it is beautifully done. 

@choco-seventeen wrote an amazing Joshua fic called Dreamcatcher and it’s a fantasy series(?) dealing with the dangers of dreams, failed friendships, life away from the city, and love. 10000/10

@versigny wrote this Namjoon smut that I think about sometimes (all the time) called Take Home Test, v smutty and A+ go support this blog it’s quality af 

@thesammtimes ahhh what can I say? Everyone’s req list has something of theirs and for good reason so I’ll just give you their masterlist so you can find out for yourself lol 

This is getting really long (I’ve been typing for two hours) sooo if you want a post about more recs just ask okay nonnie? Thank you!!! - Admin Yuuko

FIC REC -- "Convergence" by sfumatosoup - Star Trek: D9
It's only a matter of time before he identifies what's happening. These new feelings are inconvenient and unwelcome and Julian Bashir doesn't know how this happened or what to do about it. Garak knows that good things come to those who wait, only, he's been waiting for awhile for the Doctor to figure it out.
By Organization for Transformative Works

I haven’t shared any recs for a couple of weeks – vacation with my mom, busy, etc. – and maybe I will manage to share more before I leave for another vacation (Berlin!) tomorrow, but meanwhile sharing this SPECTACULAR novella I discovered a couple of days ago.

Inexplicably, I somehow missed it when it was posted to AO3 in early March this year, despite the fact I have the DS9 category on like speed redial on my browser. Maybe Trumpzilla headlines addled me that day or many fics posted that day and this went up all at once. I have no idea, but hot damn, this is amazing! I only noticed because there’s a sequel currently being posted, called “Impact,” and the first two chapters of that blew me away. I kept rereading them and finally noticed it was part of a series. WHAT? So I went back and sure enough… 70,000 words! And reading it made the sequel make a lot more sense, although it wasn’t as if I hadn’t been able to fill in the blanks.

Anyway, covering just about the whole way through the timeline of the series, this story follows canon, attempting to figure out, behind the scenes, what could have been going on in their rocky relationship, supposing they did (they did!) have a super thing for each other. Why didn’t it… happen? Alternating POVs. And you can’t stop reading it. You cannot. I have reread bits of it several times already in just the past couple of days.

Excerpt

(In secret agent Bashir’s Hong Kong apt. having lunch)

“Well, obviously I don’t mind inviting you here to the holosuite to join me for lunch, but I think we could find some sort of compromise that might be a little more convenient in the future. What if I proposed moving our lunches to one of our quarters once in awhile?” Garak looked across at him with a vaguely patronizing smile.

“That is a very…considerate offer—however, I hope you’ll forgive me if I confess my reluctance believing its a genuine one.”

“You’re certainly entitled to feel however you choose, Garak,” Julian replied, feeling a trifle miffed. “But I’m not in the habit of suggesting solutions I don’t intend to support.”

“No, I suppose not,” Garak conceded, still not looking quite as pacified as Julian had hoped.

“This isn’t about those few times in the past I’ve needed to cancel on you, is it?” Julian scrambled out a little desperately.

“I wouldn’t call such times ancient history.”

“Well, in case it’s slipped your mind, I do remember telling you I’ve been rather swamped in the infirmary lately since Jabara’s come down under the weather,” Julian pointed, seizing on the quickly narrowing window of opportunity to salvage this situation from spiraling into the sort of argument that might likely result in leading to some rather uncomfortable confessions. However, by the unimpressed expression on friend’s face, his odds were looking quite grim.

“Ah yes, Nurse Jabara’s mysterious illness,” Garak mused, smirking.

“I’ve been feeling a bit like a chicken running around with its head cut off,” Julian added to support his case, hoping that fishing for sympathy might prove a solid enough diversion.

“Your race certainly has some quaint expressions,” Garak blandly remarked. “Your self-assessment isn’t entirely without merit either. You have been rather preoccupied.”

Julian winced with a sinking feeling in his gut as the ex-spy steadily held his gaze, wondering if his whole little gambit hadn’t exactly sailed quite as undetected as he’d hoped over the windshield of Garak’s impressively sharp radar.

“I would think that would be a little understandable.”

“You sound defensive, Doctor,” Garak warned.

“I’m not defensive, Garak, I’m annoyed.”

“As you have every right to be,” Garak soothed. “It must be rather frustrating for you, considering your nurse’s symptoms appear to be only intermittently debilitating—she looks every bit the picture of health whenever I catch her strolling through the promenade—but what I find so interesting is the consistency of her condition—how frequently she’s bedridden only those unfortunate times her shifts happen to overlap with our lunches.”

Julian’s heart dropped to his stomach.

“Tell me, Doctor, have you had any luck diagnosing the condition yet?”

“Not really,” he reported with little bluster.

“Really? And you haven’t found anything amiss in her bloodwork? Nor anything in the diagnostic scans?” Garak pressed, feigning a look of deep concern. “Have you found any comparable precedent in the medical records on Bajor?“

Julian grit his teeth. If Garak was going to persist dragging this out—who was he to call himself out on his own bluff? “Nothing as of yet,” he rallied. “Damned funny thing, isn’t it? But I’m sure I’ll get to the bottom of it.”

“Oh, I do hope so,” Garak deadpanned.

“Perhaps, I should even cut this lunch short to check in on her, don’t you think?”

“Oh, I don’t think there’s any call to go to such extremes.”

“Well, maybe I should still bring her something to cheer her up,” Julian pretended to contemplate. “I’m sure she mentioned just the other day how lovely those Tarcanian wildflowers looked in the window of the florist’s shop.”

“How considerate a gesture,” Garak praised. “I’m sure she would be thrilled.” “It’s really the least I could do.”

Withering a bit under the ex-spy’s oppressive scrutiny, Julian bottomed down the rest of his drink, wishing it were something just a touch stronger.

“Doctor…while I hesitate to bring up anything that might spoil the mood,” Garak carefully prefaced, “Since we’re already on the subject and it’s just the two of us, may I make just one, small request?”

Julian’s shoulders sagged.

“In the future, if you’re going to have the audacity to lie to me, ‘the very least you could do’ is think up a better alibi. I’m afraid your excuses have been just a touch flimsy, Julian.”

Julian stiffened at the informal address; an intimacy his other friends took for granted, but not something Garak had ever presumed to refer to him by. Having observed the effect he’d clearly hoped to provoke, the Cardassian smiled with satisfaction. “I have no intention of arguing with you, Doctor, nor am I seeking an explanation. You don’t have to justify yourself to me.”

“Then no sense beating around the bush, Garak, what precisely are you getting at?”

Garak paused, furrowing his ridged brows. “'Beating around the bush?‘” he chuckled, “I do so enjoy your peculiar colloquialisms.”

yourgiantpinkspacewife  asked:

If I may be so presumptuous to ask, what exactly are the problems you see in Dresden Files?

Sexism. Pretty much just a lot of sexism. Some of it I can excuse because that’s the genre, and Harry does get called out on his chauvanism periodically, but…I can only excuse it as part of the genre if it’s being subverted, or maybe made fun of a little, and it’s not. And Harry periodically being called out for, like, trying to protect women who don’t need it, doesn’t make up for

  • the constant sexualization of Molly, even though - hell, particularly because - every time it comes up, the narration is like, “I can’t think of her Like That because I remember her in diapers, but [description of Molly scantily clad with a model figure, etc.]”
  • I want to ship Thomas and Justine, I truly do, there’s a way that it’s really sweet and periodically even badass - and, you know, 1000% Fucked Up. I’ll take sex vampires as a trope of the Hardboiled Urban Fantasy genre, that’s fine - I particularly enjoyed the scene where Lara tore out Melanie’s organs and it was utterly horrifying despite still being incredibly erotic, and the narration balanced them well to great effect. But, dude. Justine was not there of her own free will for a long time. Just because Thomas “fell in love with her”, and Justine “fell in love with him” does not make that okay, nor, um, should that romance have happened at all. Thomas falling in love with what he thinks this girl is like - heck, what she truly is, kind, caring, brave, etc. except that oh by the way he’s lowkey mind-controlling her? Fine. Great. Typical, and potentially fun to watch as a Fucked Up thing. That never being acknowledged as Fucked Up, and in fact it works out perfectly for him? NO.
  • the Actual Nonsensical Bullshit of Hannah Ascher’s “death”, which I put in quote marks because I want to give Butcher the benefit of the doubt and assume she’s not actually dead. Because otherwise, he spent literally an entire book describing how she truly loves and understands fire, in a way possibly no other magic-user does, only for Harry to be like, “Ascher’s mistake was that she only knew magic, whereas I [a male, truly knowledgable and invested in my craft] understand Physics…so I tricked her into collapsing the roof with heat.”
    • I’m not saying that’s not an incredibly Harry Dresden thing to do - he really is invested in both the physical and arcane aspect of magic; it’s well-established and I appreciate the heck out of it. And that was a very clever trick, and just the sort of thing he’d pull. But it should not have worked on Hannah Ascher.
  • in general, Butcher has about three female types he’s comfortable writing. The Ingenue - innocent, naive, sexual but chaste, enamored of the male protagonist (Molly, Justine, Susan at first, Lash as she learned humanity.) The Mother - non-violent, support class, caring, non-sexual (Charity, Susan later, Isana from Codex Alera). And The Femme Fatale - powerful, deceptive, evil, sexual and acts on it (Mab, Lea, Lash at first, Lara, Bianca, Mavra, probably Elaine, Invidia from CA…) Only the Hero’s Romantic Interest is allowed to be neither innocent nor evil nor a mother (Karrin, CA’s Kitai) but even then she’s inevitably a step behind the protagonist in savviness and day-saving, and not just because he’s the protagonist. Or, kind of because he’s hte protagonist, but it…wears thin, you know? And it’s not like the have sex any time early in the series, so she’s still an Ingenue that way - note that Karrin’s been taken out of her regular combat role simultaneous with her and Harry actually consumating their romance. 
    • yes, there are women who don’t fit these tropes. Gard is pure muscle. Ivy is a girl - though she fills pretty much every other aspect of the Ingenue trope, and I painfully anticipate the inevitable timeskip that puts her post-puberty so Harry notices her equally inevitable new curves. Luccio bounced around - but she was, you know, being used to get to Harry via romance, so…femme fatale just without the agency…
  • also, sometimes he’s just a little too pleased with his own cleverness. Jim. Jim. Harry didn’t need to explicitly, in-narration remember to Uriel that scene where he was wishing for a Knight to come fight Cassius and Butters showed up. First off, that’s called foreshadowing, and you’re supposed to let it lie for clever readers to catch. Second, we all caught it. You didn’t need to draw attention. We’ve all been theorizing about this shit for the whole damn series. Third, unlike the fans, Harry is generally shit at remembering details like that, so it was genuinely out-of-character.

All that said, I do LOVE all the theorizing, and the characters are generally fun, with perhaps a mental filter to ignore some glaring failures and trends. The narration is snappy, the plot twists are solid and exciting, and the elaborate web of supernatural politics and secrets yet to be uncovered keeps me coming back for more. I fully intend to keep reading them, perhaps even do some rereading someday. I just…also fully intend to keep to my habit for the last few books, of not paying a cent for them. They’re fun, but I’m not sure how much I want to encourage all this.

Shocking revelation of the day: Cass Cain isn’t a mopey Batgirl that wasn’t a “real Batgirl.”

Like let’s get things straight: a character shouldn’t be judged on whether or not they smile enough – especially female characters where “angry face” and “smiley face” quotas are pretty much what’s used to judge an entire character’s aesthetic in the comic landscape. Especially with teenagers. 

So the point isn’t that Cass should be smiling all the time. Like any good character, it’s more about the range of emotions she conveys, and I have discussed at length in the past how Cass passes this test with flying colors. 

And no, her “happy” emotion isn’t always seen as her predominant emotion, but she is so far from morose it’s astounding. 

What spurred me into this post is the consistently thrown around criticism for Cass both by fans and people in the industry that she doesn’t smile at all. That she is “mopey” that she is “depressing” – and unsurprisingly these jabs are thrown in favor of comparing her to other female characters (Charlie, Stephanie, and Barbara most consistently). 

These claims are blatantly false, and they drive me up a wall because it is not empowering to one female character to tear another one down and because it gets cited so many times I feel like I’m living in an alternate reality.

So. My somewhat passive aggressive rant in the open, this cathartic photoset made, Cassandra Cain (EVEN IN A FULL FACE MASK *gasp*) smiles. 

In fact she smiles a whole lot. Just in the mild attempt I made at putting this together? 245 panels worth of smiles just across four series alone. 

Shocking, I know. What a difference actually reading the damn comics makes. 

okay but why are there people who don’t ship Will/Alyss when the crown prince doofus bab wasted time, energy, and effort to SIGN OFF HIS ENCODED MESSAGE TO HER WITH “LOVE WILL”

boy is risking enough to send her the actual message, boy is already slow at coding and sending the message, boy stretches out the time it takes him to send the message by another eight letters just to reassure her that it’s really him

love will

fucking hell, leave me here friends, I will go down with this ship in a Summer Gale on the Stormwhite, I swear to god.
