I can definitely recommend lots of klance fics. As in, lots lots. I am not completely sure what you are looking for/what you have already read though, so I’m just gonna list some of my favorite authors with some of my favorite fics.
Quick additional info: there are no explicit fics on here, though some are rated mature. All of the stories have klance as their only ship but since I intended this to be author recs rather than fic recs, I will mention what kinds of other ships appear in other fics.
- Crossroads (106k): not quite canon verse, not quite AU - check the summary
- Plunged (6k): canon verse, Lance teaches Keith how to swim
- Roommates (6k): modern AU, Artist!Keith, Photographer!Lance, exactly what the title says
This author’s writing is amazingly smooth and I particularly enjoy their Keith. Crossroads was my favorite fic for a long, long time until I found some others that were just as good :D [this author also wrote some nsfw and sheith]
This author has a style of writing that makes you forget that time exists. Like, you read their stories, look up 2 hours later and go “what the hell I only just started reading 5 minutes ago”. Their fics are pretty action-heavy but the romance part never falls short. [they wrote a lot of nsfw, their newest fic is shklance]
- Entangled (102k): canon verse, Keith and Lance get mind-melded
- Right-hand Man (4k): canon verse, Keith approaches Lance after the end of season 2 to talk about their roles from now on
Amazing characterizations here. I particularly enjoyed the OS because it seemed like something that genuinely could happen like this in canon… sadly I don’t think it will, but one can dream, right :’D Also amazing art! [they wrote some nsfw]
I honestly don’t know why I like this author so much? Probably because they can squeeze an entire story into less than 10k words, complete with character development and appearances from friends etc. I liked many more of their OS but there are just so many, you should check it out for yourself. [they wrote some nsfw and shallura]
- Not That Bad (68k): modern AU, socially anxious!Keith, lots and lots of fluff
- just like that (10k): canon verse, Lance struggles with his crush on Keith
this author just? makes reading feel so good? so relaxing?? Their style is focused on conveying emotions and flows really nicely, I strongly recommend to give it a try. [their newest story is nsfw and includes lancelot]
This author is super good with emotions. You always end up feeling what the characters are feeling and I’d definitely recommend going through their other fics as well - once again, there are just so many that I won’t list them all. [they wrote some nsfw and shallura]
Another author that has a fantastic style of writing and portrays the characters really well. Also another author that wrote so many good things that I can’t possibly put them all on here. [they wrote some nsfw, sheith, shklance, shallura- lots of stuff, check the tags]
- The Quiet (40k, WIP): ghost AU, lance is the ghost
- 7 Days Series (pt 1 - 30k, pt 2 - 30k, pt 3 - 4k): canon verse, lance/keith get turned into babies
Amazing writing, plot-orientated. Don’t let that fool you though, the emotions never fall short. [they wrote some shallura, shance and other ships - also their fics aren’t rated. the ones listed are entirely sfw]
This writer has a really fluent and nice style of writing and they somehow manage to easily let lots of characters interact. Everyone feels extremely in character and nothing feels forced. Also I know nothing about cars and yet their fics belong to my favorites, so give it a try. [they wrote some shallura]
- Barbie Girl (2k): modern AU, soulmate AU, continuation
I’m not sure whether it’s just me but no matter what fic of them I read, they always feel– soft. Easy. Something good for in-between. One of their fics (not the ones listed here) has some pretty heavy topics in it and yet I still feel like that. [they wrote some shallura]
This author is amazing at writing angst. It just always hits you right in the feels. Like damn. I adore their writing so much but ho boy I was too scared to click the one Chara Death fic they wrote. I couldn’t do that to myself, the two longer OS that I listed here already gave me enough feelings. [they wrote some shallura]
I really really really enjoy this author’s Lance!! He feels incredibly in character and I swear I can see him act in canon just like he does in the fics. Their style of writing is fluent, nice and adapts really well to the situation.
[I also really enjoy witty_name’s and freshia’s fics, both of whom usually put background shallura into their fics though so I couldn’t list them here]
Aaaand that’s it for now! :D If you have a specific length/specific topics/specific ratings in mind for what you want to read, feel free to send another message!! You can also visit the fic rec tag on my blog, maybe you’ll find something else there.
/EDIT: now there is a part two with some other of my favorite fics
Your blog is simply amazing. I've read all of your prompts and godd I didn't think I could love this pairing more but you've made it possible. I was wondering though. Could you write a fic where they don't know what personal space is.. like they're always graviting towards each other but don't realize it until several people point it out. You would make my day like you did today and put so many smiles on my face and I felt really giddy. Love your work so much 💕
Hey, you’re awesome! Thanks so much love! I love this prompt, I could totally see it happening on the show.
Reaching over to grab a handful of chips out of Betty’s lunch box, Jughead threw his arm over her shoulder, effectively dragging her even tighter against his side.
Kevin elbowed Veronica in the ribs, causing her to turn and raise an eyebrow in annoyance, dramatically throwing his eyes over to the pair he made some sort of quiet noise along the lines of “mmmhmm”
Veronica’s eyes widened at The sight in front of her, Betty leaning into Jughead while his arm was wrapped lazily around her. To anyone else in the world you would think these two were a couple, the level of comfort and intimacy They shared was unbelievable, they didn’t even seem to realize the closeness continuing with their conversations as if nothing was out of the ordinary.
“Strike two.” Kevin whispered into Veronica’s ear with a wicked smile. She returned it and quickly sent a text to the redhead sitting across from her.
VERONICA: Cheryl, you seeing this?
Cheryl’s eyes turned up from the text on her phone, casting a glance to Betty and jughead
CHERYL: this is totes nothing compared to the walk to physics class.
Veronica laughed out loud remembering the hilarious scene she had watched take place.
Betty and jughead couldn’t seem to stop tripping over each other, every time Betty would move right Jughead was right on her heels, stepping on the backs of her flats, if jughead moved to head the opposite way Betty just so happened to be going the other direction causing at least three collisions in the middle of the halls.
She was silently laughing so hard at the memory tears were streaming down her face.
“You okay Ronnie?” Archie said eyeing her watery eyes and reaching a hand out to wipe a stray tear.
“You’re crying!” Betty jumped up knocking jugheads arm right in his face , causing her to break into another fit of uncontrollable giggles.
“I’m fine, I’m fine. I’m just having….spacial issues.” At this she set off Cheryl and Kevin, they were now laughing equally as hard she was.
“Did I miss the joke?” Jughead said confused
Betty raised an eyebrow as the lunch bell went off “apparently I missed it too.”
Everyone stood to head back inside, feeling slightly high from there five minute long laugh fest
“You guys are so weird.” Betty huffed as she grabbed her bag.
Jughead just shook his head, nudging Betty over so he could walk beside her.
As the group walked to their final class of the day, one of the mathletes accidentally shoved Betty into jugheads arms
“Watch where you’re going! I’m sure solving derivatives can wait.” He snarled towards the tiny freshman.“you okay?” he asked, his arms still comfortably holding her from behind
She nodded, resting her head against his chest.
Veronica stared at the pair, looking around at her swooning friends, she had to get to the bottom of this.
“Okay what’s up with you two, it’s like you can’t be apart for more than three minutes and it’s like gravity keeps pushing you two into each other.” She said sassily
Jughead dropped his arms from her waist and Betty stepped away blushing.
“What are you talking about Ronnie?”
“Oh come on guys, everyone can see it except you two, you’re like destined to be close.” Cheryl answered giddily, she loved a good romance.
“Totally agree, like Romeo and Juliet.” Kevin nodded.
Archie laughed “its totally true, I haven’t seen one of you without the other in weeks.”
Jughead was smiling down at Betty now and she looked up at him with a curious smile
“Whaddaya say bets? We can’t let the universe down can we?” He smirked holding his arm out for her to take.
She laughed loudly, sliding her arm into his.
“You’re so right juggie, physics and all that.” Smiling and holding each other close the couple made their way down the hallway, leaving their friends to stare in shock
The silence was broken when Archie mutter d happily
This maybe is a really unpopular opinion, but I don't like what they are trying to do with the legend of korra comics. It was bad enough that they pretended to be inclusive when they make korrasami canon when it was the fandom who did all the work, they didn't care to give them a properly development because they knew the power of the fandom and now they know that the fandom is still on tumblr and they are writting fan fiction in order to sell the comics. I don't like when people use my +
sexuality to appear to be inclusive, they are not the first one to try it and sadly they won’t be the last.
I’m going to start off by saying that I think you’re preaching to the wrong audience here friend. I’ve always been aggressively pro-Korrasami and pro-Bryke and I’m one of those people who will take LGBT representation in whatever form its given to me (except for like…Irredeemable villains and obviously token characters who are there for one ep and then gone *coughRedKansascough*.
I am apologetically a slut for queer rep, but I like to think I’m still aware and critical of representation that’s obviously been half-assed, and I have never felt that way with Korrasami.
That said, just because I don’t feel that way doesn’t mean I don’t think your feelings are extremely valid. I can see how you and others might feel a little taken advantage of with this whole influx of LGBT inclusive material in the Korra comics when, in your eyes, they didn’t try very hard to do so in the show. From that perspective it seems like an attempt to cash in on their queer fans.
The way I’ve always looked at it, though, is that they have more freedom in the comics to do what they’ve always wanted to do (”Always” meaning since the developing stages of Book 3 when Korrasami became a real possibility). Nickelodeon is still a children’s network and, much as it hurts to admit, we as people are still largely considered “taboo” for the kiddies. Abuse, adultery, and murder-suicides are cool for them to see tho. Many kids shows today have begun to show more LGBT characters, so we seem to be moving away from that mindset.
But Korrasami was a thing in 2013-2014, before gay marriage was even legalized country-wide. Censors were a real problem in showing LGBT content on networks like Nick, Disney, and CN. We already know from Bryke (or one of them, can’t remember which though lol) that Nick censored a kiss in the finale. It stands to reason then, that Nick was probably fairly strict when it came to developing Korrasami. The fact that they got what they got approved (Like the Hug n’ Blush, which was probably the most forward moment outside of the finale) still amazes me tbh. I believe that they’ve begun to include more LGBT material in the comics due to a lack of censors and more creative freedom, not to attract more readers, though I’m sure that’s definitely a bonus.
(Young Justice did something similar in their tie-in comics with Marie Logan by the way, only LoK did it better by not killing off the Lesbian 2 seconds after her reveal)
I do take issue with your insistence that the fandom did all the work, however. Contrary to popular belief we didn’t just pull Korrasami out of our ass based on breadcrumbs (And neither do Bumbleby fans or SQ fans, or most other fans of f/f ships but that’s another discussion for another day). Korrasami was so prominent in the fandom because of what they were doing on the show, not the other way around. Did fandom play a part? Of course, I’m sure we helped to plant the seeds and I’m sure the OG and most diehard Korrasamis would have found something in the show to feed into their ship with or without the writing team backing them up.
But I was there from the start, and I watched the Korrasami fandom grow exponentially in Books 3 and 4, which is when Bryke have said they started working hints and moments in. It’s not a coincidence that the ship drew more support in after the writing started leading in that direction and, I’ve come to realize, it’s not a coincidence that I myself started shipping Korrasami in book 3 either. Bryke and the crew fought hard for Korrasami to become a reality and I truly believe they did their best with the restrictions they were given.
Really, whether you see Korrasami (and all the other LGBT things they included in the comics) as taking advantage of their queer audience or a genuine attempt to be inclusive is dependent on whether or not you’re willing to give the crew the benefit of the doubt. I am, but if you’re an LGBT fan who feels differently then that’s your right and I can’t question it or judge you for it.
At the end of the day though, when I think of all those finale reactions that show queer fans jumping for joy or crying actual tears because of Korrasami, or see posts with stills from Turf Wars talking about how much this means to them, I find I really don’t give a damn about their intentions. What matters is the impact, and Legend of Korra’s impact on LGBT fans cannot be denied.
I was wondering if you would be willing to do a dark AU where the clones are really, probably unhealthily, possessive. Preferably one where the find the chips and order 66. Heck, maybe that's what triggers the whole kit and caboodle; the clones find out they're supposed to kill their Jedi and just nope the heck out and decide no one's going to harm their Jedi, or make them do it, either. Regardless of the methods they have to use. Thanks!
Lowering his cup slowly, Wolffe stared
at Rex. “What do you kriffing mean that we’re suppose to kill
them?” He growled out.
The captain growled back and shook the
chip at the others. “That’s what this is going to make us do.
That’s what Fives said and what Tup figured out. These things.”
He shook the jar lightly. “Are wired up to wipe us of our loyalty
to our Jedi and make us consider them traitors…and then we kill
Cody touched his own head, staring at
the glass jar. “We ALL have them?”
“Not all of the early generation but
who’s left of them?” Rex looked around. “Four or five out of
what? We are a whole army, a whole army against the Jedi? The old?
The young? The disabled of them? What about the cores?”
Several vods paled until they looked
They could already imagine what would
“And our Generals? Who trust us with
their lives? Who shows us their backs? Stars light, Kenobi even lets
Cody carry his lightsaber.”
Cody gave a full body spasm.
“How many blaster bolts can a Jedi
dodge even with a saber?” Rex continued, driving in each point. He
then looked to Wolffe. “What about General Koon in his ship with
the Wolf pack behind him? He doesn’t stand a chance.”
Wolffe crushed the cup in his hand,
water pouring over his glove as he stared at his vod.
“…Then what do we do?” Someone
“We do what we were made to do. We go
to war and we serve and protect our generals.” Rex leaned in.
Rubbing a hand over his face, Obi-Wan
slowly set his cup aside. “Force…I feel exhausted.” He sighed,
wondering where the sudden tiredness came from.
“Perhaps a small rest or meditation
then sir?” Cody asked. “We’d inform you if our situation
changes of course.” He added when he saw the Jedi open his mouth to
That got a small pause then Obi-Wan
nodded. “Yes, that does sound good. Inform me if anything changes
“Of course General.” Both Cody and
the comm personnel watched the Jedi go, Cody slowly counting to
twenty in his head as everyone else milled about as normal.
And then he turned to the comms.
The clone smirked. “Come in Echo
team, what’s your position?”
“Still hunting, the bitch is running.
“Currently sleeping, you have half an
hour before he works the drugs out of his systems.”
“Copy that sir.”
Cody switched channels. “Commander
Pond? How goes?”
“Droid bait is wearing down. He’ll
burn soon.” Came the icy cold voice of Pond in return and Cody
couldn’t help a vicious grin.
“Good. Any news from Captain Rex?”
“He has a dot on the Sith Master he
says. Refuses to tell us who but he has him.”
Cody nodded that, taking a deep breath.
From what Rex had hinted at it was something high up in the Senate
and therefor anyone still chipped would not be told. Beside, what
they didn’t know they couldn’t reveal.
“And Commander Bly?”
“Still tracking the Count. He says
his General is getting suspicious though.”
Aayla Secura was one smart cookie and
that could be a problem. “Does Bly have any plans of action.”
“Tranq. Its his only plan.” Pond
suddenly went quiet for a few moments. “Kark, General Windu is
waking up.” He hissed. “Razor, tranq him, now.”
‘We’re doing this for a reason, its
for their sake.’ Cody reminds himself, fiddling with the tranq in
his own utility belt. He hopes it won’t come to that point, he’d
rather not have to drug his Jedi twice in one day.
It felt like forever until the comms
suddenly crackled again.
“Echo squad reporting in. The bitch
is down.” There was a blaster impact. “And dead.”
One Sith down, three left.
“Pond reporting in. Droid bait lit up
like a bonfire.”
Cody had to leave the tent to distract
his General when the third report came in.
“Count is cornered and scared. He’s
surrendering to our General.” That was not part of the plan but
obviously Bly couldn’t get around her. Well perhaps the information
the count would give the Order would help.
And then Rex reported in. “And then
there were none.” His voice sounded viciously satisfied.
Cody would have asked what Rex had done
when the holo display suddenly light up, General Skywalker looking
pale and shaken as he demanded to see Obi-Wan.
“Obi-Wan! The Chancellor is dead! A
Cody exchanged a look, startled look
I don't know how friends are acting in Korea when they're REALLY close, like brothers, as Jimin said, but what I know if, in my country (I'm in Europe), two males was acting like half they do, they'd be labelled gay for sure (true or not, but still). I don't know korean's usual behaviours on the subject, but in my eyes, these guys absolutely don't act like brothers. There is something going on and not only between JK and JM ¡ sorry for my english
They don’t act like brothers to me either anon (whether they are or not). I really feel like there is something going on with Jimin and Kook that runs deeper than just brotherly relations too. I can’t say we’re 100% right but I definitely can’t dismiss the thought. Now I’m not Korean either, but this blog ( @satellite-jeon ) gives you a Korean perspective on them. She does insightful analyses of them from that standpoint, so check her out. I think it’s safe to say that the K-shippers think they have a special relationship too. They blur the lines of typical “hyung-dongsaeng” relations. I mean just looking at Jimin’s behavior, reactions, interactions and just the things he says to and about Jungkook implies otherwise. (Allow me to have a small rant here lol)
1. He says things like: He wants to go on dates with Jungkook. He teases JK with lines like “Do you like hyung that much?” and “Are you happy because of me?”. He asks Jungkook for kisses/tried to kiss him. Once when they were at a photoshoot, he asked Jungkook to bear his children. Now he said this as a joke but really is this the kind of jokes you say to your brother?
2. He uploaded a tweet of them on Valentine’s Day. I’m pretty sure he knows what the day is. Does he expect others to see them as brotherly when he does this? Do brothers do that? He could’ve just uploaded the vid on another day that doesn’t even remotely imply couple. (I’m probably overthinking this one but Jimin is a sly person so blame him lol)
3. He doesn’t tell Jungkook to stop, like seriously and legitimately stop. He only encourages JK’s behavior. And we all know how JK behaves when it comes to Jimin. He let’s him manhandle him. He let’s him intimately hold on to his waist and sway in a back hug.He leans into it.He knows that he can make Jungkook flustered, make him blush or react and he acts on it.
4. He said Jungkook was his. In Run ep.15, when Hobi was talking about JK seeing him in the shower, he was not amused. In fact he got up and redirected the spotlight on him and JK, implying that JK uses his toothbrush. He eyes down fans who interact with JK a little too intimately for his liking. Do brothers show this kind of jealousy?
5. How he watches JK with intense looks (like in the vehicle after JK’s graduation).
He checks him out.
He shares heated intense stares with JK.
I didn’t know brothers lick their lips and watch the other with hooded eyes. Who watches their brother like this? Do brothers have tension filled moments? I mean ain’t this a nice brotherly moment. This is definitely how you carry out an apologetic gesture with your brother. (Jin’s reaction reeeally verified that.) 😑
6. Let’s not even talk about those fan accounts from Japan or even their recent 21st CG actions because I’m pretty sure they could’ve behaved more brotherly.
Now I really can’t say anything about any other ship other than Jungkook and Jimin’s because really and truly their dynamic was the only one that stood out to me when I got into BTS. So although I like the other ships in BTS, some romantic, others platonic, I can’t say I have as much of a strong feeling for any other ship being something more as I do with Jikook/Kookmin.
That’s Emma’s tale, and she’s sticking to it. She still
isn’t entirely sure how writing a song turned into, well, this. She was going
to just watch it on the TV. She wanted to stay in the background. But here she
is, sitting backstage with Ruby and the rest of the Norway team, blinking in
the flashing lights and trying not to look overwhelmed by the ridiculousness
all around her.
Because Eurovision is ridiculous. There’s a guy on stage
right now singing a high-pitched song about bread or something, while five
other men dressed as rain drops dance around him. Or maybe they’re tear drops;
Emma isn’t sure.
The point is, all Emma ever wanted to do was write a song,
and yet here she is at the weirdest music event she’s ever attended and wondering
about Europe’s collective sanity.
Elsa’s performance goes amazingly well, though, so there’s
that. The ice theme was the right choice, as Ruby remarks with satisfaction,
complementing the song while being weird enough to leave an impression. Emma was unsure about the robotic snow man whizzing around the stage, before, but she
understands the reasoning now. It’s probably the next meme already.
The crowd loves it, anyway.
Emma suffers through another ballad, this one sung by a
German lady who could really do with a bucket or something to help her carry
the tune. She’s only half-paying attention, most of her mind on Elsa and Ruby
and trying to look calm and relaxed for the cameras, in case any show up.
“Next up is the UK—let’s meet their candidate!” one of the
hosts (Emma keeps mixing them up) calls.
There are screens everywhere, showing the little clip that
plays before each country takes the stage. Emma pays no attention, because Anna
has started talking again, her nerves running away with her.
“… because really everyone says neighbours vote for each
other, but we don’t have that many neighbours and I’m not sure Sweden would
vote for us anyway, but I think that a lot of people also vote for the song
they like best and really Elsa has been the best so far, hasn’t she? And—”
“Anna,” Emma says, reaching over to put a calming hand on
the girl’s shoulder before she can drive them all to the brink of nervous
collapse again. “Anna. Relax. Elsa did her best, and now we just have to
wait and see.”
“I know, but—oh, he’s handsome, isn’t he?” Anna’s
eyes have snagged on the stage, where the UK’s candidate is about to begin his
Emma follows her gaze, thankful to the UK for distracting
Anna—and does a startled double-take.
This idea has been bouncing around in my head for a while and while I don’t feel like writing a fic about it I’m just going to dump out my ideas:
-Ruby is in charge of building sets and/or props. Yang keeps trying to get her to audition for the cast but she’s shy and also happier backstage where she gets to build things. She’s also on crew. She prides herself on being the only one she knows who can rap “Guns and Ships”.
-Blake is definitely the stage manager who is done with everyone’s shit. The only cast members she likes are Yang and Pyrrha. Yang brings her coffee every day and Pyrrha’s too nice to hate but other than that she’s a massive pile of salt. (This is true of most SMs. The last show I called half our conversations between cues were just *deep sigh* “Actors”)
-Weiss is the prima donna who nobody really likes because she’s a snob, but they tolerate her because she’s a fantastic leading lady. Super high strung and stressed out and everybody wishes she would just chill it’s just a high school production please Weiss calm down.
-Pyrrha is a supporting character/Weiss’ understudy? in the cast, and she’s totally the cast Mom. Like the one who brings in Timbits on weekend rehearsals and enough tea to fill an ocean during show week so that no-one gets sick
-Yang is an ensemble member who sometimes gets bigger parts, usually comic relief stuff. She’s always super up-beat, and that one person who goes around talking about how she feels like the whole cast is one big family and it’s super cheesy but people love her anyway. She’s also a fantastic dancer.
-I feel like Ren is the choreographer just because of that one chibi episode. He’s a bit of a slave driver but everyone knows he’s damn good at his job (they’re all so screwed when he graduates)
-Nora…honestly I’m not sure what Nora would do. Makeup? Costumes? She mostly got involved ‘cause Ren was involved and those two are inseparable in any AU
- Jaune walked into auditions by accident and somehow landed the lead he doesn’t know what he’s doing and Pyrrha might be brainstorming ways to take out Weiss so she can stage-kiss Jaune and he’s so confused send this poor boy help.
Anyways listen I will talk about rwby theatre kids until I die so if you wanna know more (or even if you don’t idc) hit me up
I have been seeing really nasty comments about Ellie Bamber the actress playing Shawn’s love interest in TNHMB music video and I’m disgusted by them.
While I was watching the music video I was crying my eyes out not because I was jealous of the girl (I’m a little bit) but because how you see & feel their chemistry they had in the video. We obviously don’t know if they are dating but they are I ship it so hard 😻with that being said Ellie is a professional actress she obviously she’s playing the role of his lover.
Look as part of the fandom I’m disgusted by the comments what if they are dating how can you say horrible comments to the person who is making Shawn feel happy. Real or not don’t hate on Ellie cause you wish you were that girl in that video.
Moving on I loved the music video it’s better then I could ever imagine. I love that we can see & feel their chemistry, I love how he involves the fans cause he was playing his show. I love it how they shown anything sexual Ellie wasn’t dressed all sexually and wasn’t being exposed. Once again Shawn is setting a high standards for boyfriends all over the world. I love the scene where Shawn’s gets off stage and you can see he & Ellie running around exploring Paris at night & day time that was the moment i stared crying my eyes out cause it was so beautiful put together.
Now I'm kinda curious. Why can't you see Fiona and Scourge together?(Neither can I. But probably for a different reason then yours :P) You don't really have to answer if you don't want to. I just like hearing the reasoning behind stuff like this. Nice to hear how other people see characters.
Okay,I was waiting for this question. I’m going to say what I think (yeah you read right MY opinion, NOT EVERYONE will have the same ideas so don’t throw hate on me) ((also English it’s not my language so, sorry if I make mistakes))
First of all we have to know who are we talking about, Fiona Fox (Gal that was first good, then bad then good again… oh no, she was evil all along, need to keep that in mind) and Scourge (”Sonic’s evil twin” who was born in a twisted world and had to grow up without attention or love, what made him the villain he’s now). I can see how people blindly ship them because they are cannon on the comics and they kinda get along and work well together, I thought that too, for a long time. Then I was re-reading Sonic Universe to remember the good old times and I saw this line:
This… THIS. I realized Fiona’s true intentions, she wasn’t there to help her loved one, she was there to get him and finish their job, some job for
Dr. Finitevus that we never got to see because SOMEONE… *coff*kenpenders*coff*
We know Fiona’s past, she can’t trust anyone.
This is why I belive that she’s just using Scourge as backup for her plans, he’s really powerful and she’s not stupid, being his girl allows her to get close and manipulate him. Here’s an example of how Fiona can change Scourge’s mind when she wants to get something:
She’s not trying to help him, she’s just telling him to do what was part of her plan to begin with. This reminds me to mention the fact that Scourge alone did all that stuff, think how Fiona might feel knowing that she can use him for different works.
To finish with her, we’re talking about Fiona… I can’t see her really loving anyone as far as the comic’s stories went with her development. Sorry if there are some Fiona fans, I’m not saying she’s a bad character, well she’s… You know what I mean.
And about Scourge… Well…
He’s clearly attracted to her, there’s no doubt of that. But I’m talking about a character better developed and with more personality (in my opinion) For me he’s just too cool to be with her. And we saw how he’s easily manipulated, I find funny the way he thinks he knows or controls everything and obviously that’s not the case.
Now, knowing how Fiona feels I can’t stand people saying this
I get the part of “they’re evil” but I don’t care. Sally and Sonic have a proper relationship, they get along, they respect and trust each other, you can see the love between the two (Sorry Sonamy fans, I’m talking about Archie Comics and it’s cannon) You can’t say that it’s the same relationship but evil, even with their personalities the should be able to show more love, all their interactions are calling each other “babe” and hugging with an edgy pose. This may be because the short time we got with the characters, they’re not the protagonists so I get that it’s not the same
This are my reasons why I can’t ship them (and some more, but this is too long already) and I get kinda annoyed when people say they are a great couple when they’re just… Together.
I love how (at least with the later seasons of the show) there's this trend of shipping Sam with a minor character that would love and support him. Sammax, Saileen, I'm sure there's others I'm forgetting.
Okay so I’ve noticed this too, and I love this trend, but I have a hypothesis.
(Quick note: This is not a meta. I don’t write meta. This is just an idea.)
So I’ve been in this fandom long enough to have witnessed a bit of its history. Not so long ago (soon enough that I still see remnants of it), there was this #givesamaboyfriend trend. It’s still a thing that people want Sam to have a bf, but this was like. A movement. The idea being that 1. Sam has been Claimed By The Queers, and 2. Sam needs someone to love and care for him, because lord knows the showrunners keep putting him through the wringer with little to no acknowledgement afterwards. Our queer boy is being treated poorly and needs someone to hold him and tell him nice things. Of course, there were times where this painted Sam as a damsel in distress who is unable to stand up for himself, but to be fair, there are times in actual canon that paint the same exact picture. So, y’know, I’ll let it slide.
So we see a hundred posts that all read like: “Season x wishlist: Sam meets a man (played by Steven Amell) during a hunt and saves his life. Hunter guy sticks around for a while, sees how people treat Sam, and helps Sam re-learn to stand up for himself.” Details change, of course, but that was the gist.
And then, we started getting characters that fit the bill, or could be molded to. Anyone else remember when people were shipping Sadreel/Sezekiel when we first got wind of Gadreel’s existence? WEEKS before the s9 pilot aired, before we knew who Ezekiel was or why he was there, he was the big strong man who would protect Sam. And even now that we know everything about Gadreel, there are some shippers (myself included) who not only held onto this idea, but thought it was ten times better that Gadreel was at least as tragic as Sam was. That’s not to say that Gadreel was the first character that this happened with, but it’s the first I can think of off the top of my head.
So in the case of SamMax … come on, he pretty much fits that description from earlier: They met on a case, Sam helped save everyone’s bacon, Max (and Alicia) see how Sam is treated and stand up for him. (I know it was a humourous moment, but they could have easily freaked out that Sam was possessed. Instead, they both go “wow, that’s kind of personal, dude. You can’t just bring that stuff up like that, wow, have some tact.”) Max didn’t need to be altered as a character. We didn’t need to use our imaginations like we did with Sezekiel. Max was everything we were looking for with Sam, without changing the character or filling in blanks, and that’s why I think it got as popular as it did. It persists now because Max has survived so far, unlike other characters like Gadreel.
(Another interesting note: I see people doing this with older episodes too. They see an old gifset from one of the first three seasons and ship Sam with a male one-off character.)
Now, Saileen is different. Not necessarily because she’s female (the “Sam is Queer” thing isn’t diminished by that, I mean), but because there wasn’t the whole #givesamaboyfriend background. I think the most likely reason Saileen got so popular is because she was Sam’s friend. Not to say that males and females can’t be Just Friends, but when was the last time we saw someone who was Sam’s friend, who not only treated him well, but wasn’t Dean’s friend first? Sorry to say, it’s been a long time. Even Charlie doesn’t fit both criteria. I don’t have the encyclopedic knowledge of SPN I used to, but the first friend of Sam’s that I can think of is Sarah. Guess what, she’s dead. Meg 1.0? Not only was she a demon, but she’s also dead.
Then I think of Dr. Cara. They weren’t friends, necessarily, but they could have been. She took an interest in Sam and was kind to him. But I hate how their interaction was treated on the show. Not only because Dean constantly griped about Sam “cockblocking him” (even though she showed exactly negative interest in Dean), but because it was later painted as a bad thing when they hooked up because Dean thought she might be the siren. (I could write a fucking dissertation about this whole thing tbh it pisses me off so much, but I digress). And that’s a really common theme in the show too. Sam can’t just have girlfriends or hookups anymore. Barring early seasons (and Piper), all of Sam’s partners have either had ulterior motives or have been painted in a bad light by other characters. (Think: The hippie girl and Amy Pond (who I admit wasn’t a romantic partner but was still Sam’s friend – and is now dead, thanks Dean.))
Anyway, Eileen was a breath of fresh air: She was nice to Sam. She was Sam’s friend (not Dean’s friend who later met Sam). She was a badass and capable hunter, which was important because we all know that hunters (or, at least, the Winchesters) can’t settle down with non-hunters. Dean approved of her. She didn’t have ulterior motives, wasn’t using Sam, and nothing about the storytelling made it seem like their friendship was a Bad Idea. Also, until recently, she was alive and presumably kept in contact with Sam. He even learned a little ASL from her now come on that’s fanfic fodder just by itself.
ANYWAY, this got long as shit, but I think that’s why such rare pairs are popular, with special emphasis on SamMax and Saileen. And I sure as hell hope the trend continues because I live for this shit.
I think it's beautiful that Jikook never does anything excessive in shows... sounds like a 'we DON'T need' and this makes me believe more. Idk It's okay that sometimes something happens, but it's so rare. And Jungkook plays with this side of Jimin, like "Oh, hyung don't be like this". This is my point of view. And even though I expect millions of things happening to them is not that what makes them real to me. what i think: "we do not need to show anything to anyone just to ourselves".
I agree 100%, Jikook don’t need to show off and hug each other every 5 seconds. They’re relationship is realer than just fan service. (I’m not saying other ships do fan service.) I think the subtle, small moments that jikook do have are super sweet and part of what makes me think jikook is real. I think that since a lot of jikook moments are found when you zoom in on the video or just really subtle, then it just shows how much they actually like being around each other. In 2013/2014 we had quite a bit of fan service with jikook (im just saying, but jimins “i love jungkook” thing in every bangtan bomb and video was over kill), but now it’s pure love and appreciation for the other person. They don’t need to prove anything to us to know how they feel about each other.
The fandom has become so toxic, Matty. I don't even know how to stay here anymore without going berserk. Uttering a single word gets me such backlash it makes me weep. I've blocked and muted and everything in between. Nothing works. I don't know why I'm telling you this but please help me. I don't know what to do anymore.
Oh, anon. I’m so, so very sorry to hear this. Have a hug, first and foremost.
I’m nobody to tell you what to do but since you left this in my inbox, I cannot leave this unanswered.
Trust me, we all have our moments. I did as well and I took a break because sometimes that’s the only thing you can do. So, you do you without any hesitation.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - the thing is that the fandom is sentient. It’s something that I realized a while ago but this fandom is sentient. It holds so many people within itself, from different backgrounds, cultures, genders, and what not. Imagine every difference you can conceive and put it all together under one blanket. So many thousands of people with so many different energies. And all of it feeding the fandom. Nobody is a nobody. Every single one of us is important. Everything is symbiotic.
For me, fandom is a sentient being. When there is a great moment (think the teaser for 3x20) it thrives and lives spectacularly. When there are hard times (think entire season 5), it slumps and sighs in weariness. The fandom lives because of us. We hold the reins of its life, and as so many different people, it’s inevitable that the lows will come with the highs. It is also inevitable that there will be people who disagree with you, people who’ll never like you, people with whom you’d never mix. But there are also people who would. Those are the ones I focus on.
I love Oliver. I love Felicity. Together and as individuals. I love them because they are not perfect. I love them because they are flawed human beings who make mistakes and learn and persevere through situations that break people. They inspire me and I love them.
I may not agree with the show sometimes. (I definitely don’t)
I may think the story sucks sometimes (I definitely do)
I may think the characters deserve better most times (I absolutely do)
I may miss the old way (I really do)
I may want to smack Oliver on his head or shake Felicity sometimes. (I do)
I may want to invade the Writers Room and change the scripts (a lot)
But that does not change the one basic fact underneath everything - I connect to Olicity. (Even when they’re going through the bad times, I connect to them)
And that’s the entire point, anon. All of us are here because, despite our numerous differences and stands, at some point, we connected to them. We are united by one simple thing - Olicity.
It’s not just a ship or a phenomenon anymore. It’s a way of life. And life has a way of being harsh sometimes.
Everyone has a right to their opinion and they should - that’s what makes everything dynamic and stops us from being sheep. Sometimes it gets rough, sometimes it’s smooth. But the most important thing is that this fandom is here because of the connection each and every one of us feels to Oliver and Felicity.
I know sometimes things become very bleak. Sometimes I get upset too, it’s unnatural not to. Thankfully, I have friends I vent to in those moments and they smack sense into me. And with that sense, also comes a reminder. About not just the bad, but the good of this fandom.
This is the same fandom that unites with a fierceness that’s unbelievable when faced with adversaries. This is the same fandom that put everything else aside and got together for a week during MTV Ship of the Year to grab that victory for our babies. This is the same fandom where Person A may not like Person B but they’d slay any outsider raising a finger at them.
I agree it has it’s hard moments, but it has those moments too that will remain with us for the rest of our lives, experiences that we couldn’t have gone through anywhere else. I like to focus on those usually. As long as people know what they are here for, that Olicity is the core of this fandom, it’s all good. I am not here for everyone who agrees or disagrees with me. I am here for Oliver and Felicity and my connection to them. This is my happy place, not naturally, but because I try my damnedest to keep it so.
So, do what makes you feel happiest here, anon. Take a break if that’s what makes you happy. Leave or stay if that does. Meet people or sit in your own corner, ignore what you don’t like or take a stand- it’s all on you. Choose your battles, as they say.
It’s like writing a story (and I’m using this analogy because this is who I am). There may be people who hate it, people who tell you they hate it, people who criticize everything harshly. But there are also people who believe and encourage and take the time to give you the best of their love. That’s who you focus on. That’s how you keep writing.
Have your own opinions. Stay strong to them. Respect what others say. They have a reason for the way they feel too. We don’t know where anyone comes from and being judgemental is the easy path, not the correct one.
Live and let live. Do you. Be happy. Try and make the most of the good bits.
Because we are in a relationship with Oliver and Felicity. And relationships are not easy, but then,
I feel like with queerbaiting the charcters' relationship just plateaus after a certain point, but supergirl keeps developing kara and lena's relationship and we know theyre not even close to being done, hmm
I KNOW. like the thing with queerbaiting is that you can tell its people wishful thinking. usually, it’s not really there, ya know? more like a reading between the lines kind of situation.
they don't really go on dates, don't have lip bites, don't say things that sound romantic, don't give each other flowers, dont constantly say thing like “always” and keep repeating “friends” to the point of it sounding sarcastic. queerbaiting is usually two characters sharing a couple of glances. but with supercorp every scene is them staring at each other like they are about to blurt out “I love you” or start making out. it’s glancing at each other’s bodies and lips and lip bites. it's teasing in a flirty way, eyebrow raises, blushing, flustered laughs and shy smiles, etc… its these things that the writers have also written in the canon romance (lena also did the teasing, flirting and eyebrow raises with jack. kara also laughed nervously in an exaggerated way with james, and blushes) and even the canon romance for kara is lacking most of these.
like supercorp has more canonically romantic moments (not read between the lines but in the actual lines and actions shown) than karamel, that is the canon romance right now. because when it comes down to it being flustered, nervous, blushing and going on dates is much more romantic than fighting and kissing.
so lmao people can call it queerbaiting and maybe it is but you can’t deny that this queerbaiting is more like canon romantic interactions and not a product of people’s imaginations. even if it doesn’t become canon. especially when their relationship has evolved and unlike most queerbaiting it isn't the same throughout the whole thing with no actual explanation for those gay vibes you get. so we are getting a whole bunch of actually visible facts (it’s right there on the screen and the audio, you can’t deny what is being shown to us. its not fanfic, its canon) that show us there is something there (even if they don't make them a couple) and not all ships (especially when they are supposed to last on tv shows) are made canon right away.
to me, it just feels a lot different to any other queerbaiting I’ve seen. considering they would get the same effect without going through the trouble of making it so obvious that even the media noticed it. and without making people start questioning kara’s romantic interest for her canon bf. so lmao why do that when you could create a read between the lines queerbaiting relationship like most shows do? also they already have sanvers so no need to queerbait
Warnings: None :) just a wholesome cute fic enjoy!
Request: @vivere-citta I would like to request a Moana x reader (I’m sorry, I’m obsessed with her) where the reader wishes to help her on her journey to find Maui and restore the heart, but Moana thinks it’s too dangerous. (You decide whether it’s romantic or platonic)
A/N: As always, so sorry this took so long. All the Newt ones you requested are on the way. We are really working on tackling requests and getting them out quickly. Enjoy!
His foot drew back. He measured and analyzed the field in only two moments. Kimo screamed when his foot flew forward, out from under him colliding with the coconut. You and the other kids weren’t sure whether it was an initial scream of dominance or anticipation of pain and regret.
Either way, your brother threw himself on his back and screamed. Monstrous tears pouring down his face. You ran to his side, the other kids clearing a path for you. Moana was right next to you.
“Kimo?” Moana called out. She reached out to your brother and took him in a warm embrace, until your mother came bounding over with a look of disapproval on her face.
“He deserved what he got.” you told your mother as she walked away. She only sneered then returned to comfort your brother and nurse the massive bruise that would be on his foot.
“We could’ve used a ball of tweed or something.” you said walking back to Moana.
She shook her head at you and laughs. “If you kick tweed it’s going to just fall apart. Plus, you dared him to kick it.”
“He didn’t have to say yes.” you laughed.
Moana crossed her arms over her chest and shook her head at you. She tried to force a look of disappointment on her face. You only laughed. She scrunched her nose, raised her eyebrows and bit her lip. She began to turn red. She let out a breath and a smile and laugh broke through.
“I hate you, (Y/N).” Moana tried to say with a straight face, but she only ended up laughing.
You threw your arm around her. “You know you love me.”
The two of you laughed and wandered off to sit on the beach, and let the waves tickle your fit in the sand.
10 YEARS LATER
“I’m so proud of you, Moana.” He embraced her and pulled her close. She wasn’t Daddy’s little girl anymore.
“Thanks, Dad.” Moana said, with a smile. She pulled away from her father and walked towards you. There wasn’t a smile anymore.
She walked past you, the chief crown hanging in her fingers. She walked to the beach and stood on the shore, letting the waves wash over her feet.
You ran over to her. You put an arm around her. “Hey.” you said softly.
“Hey.” she replied, staring at her feet. She kicked up some sand. The crown fell beside it.
“What are you going to do?” you frowned.
The two of you sat down in the sand. “I don’t know.” she shrugged. “I don’t want to disappoint. But, staying here doesn’t feel right.” she pulled at the Heart of Tafiti. Moana glanced up at the tree. The leaves were blackening and it was only spreading. “Everyone is telling to stay and lead.”
“Not everyone.” you raised an eyebrow. “I’m with you, 100% no matter what you do. You know that. But, the real question is what do you want to do, Moana? Who is telling you what’s right? Them?” you pointed back towards the village. “Or you? Don’t forget about that voice inside of you, Moana.”
Your heads turned sharply. Moana’s parents were standing, tearfully.
“Gramma…” Moana said softly.
You stood outside the hut.
Inside, Moana clutched her dying Gramma Tala. You hadn’t gone in with her, because it was personal and she needed to do it on her own. You were just there to make sure it was alright after.
The moonlight sparkled on the water. The ocean was just behind the line of trees. There was a whole world beyond the island and Moana wanted to join it. You would follow her across the world, just to be with her.
You turned to see Moana. Her emotions shattered. You wrapped your arms around her and hugged her. She cried into your shoulder. You held her tightly. You didn’t want to see her get hurt. You didn’t want to never see her again. That seemed like a worthless life.
Moana pulled away. She looked out at the sea. “It’s calling me.”
You looked at her, her hair whipping in the wind. The moonlight cast across her face, making her tears shine. Without saying another word, she jumped off the hill and ran down towards the ocean. Her future.
Moana was ignoring you and everything else as she pulled the sails tight. “You can’t tell me not to go.” she finally said.
“I wasn’t ever going to say that, Moana.”
“Then why aren’t you saying goodbye?” she turned around.
“Because, I’m not letting you go-”
Moana started to shout. “You can’t be serious! You have always said you support me in everything I do. You’ve been telling me to follow my heart. So I am. I’m doing this with or without your support. I’m going to find Maui, show him I mean business and return the Heart and-”
“Alone!” you shouted. “I’m not letting you go alone.” your voice softened.
You stepped into the water beside Moana and stepped onto the sail boat.
You shook your head. “Don’t say anything.” you reached your hand out to her. “Now are we coming or what?”
She smiled and grabbed your hand.
You stood beside her and took a deep breath. “Let’s do this.”
She smiled at you then looked at the sail. She took a deep breath. “Yeah.” she sighed. “Let’s do this.” she grabbed a rope and pulled it back. “I don’t know how to sail, but we can do this. I’m going to go find Maui, tell him to put the Heart back, and everything will be saved. Yeah. I can do this.”
You smiled at her with no doubt in your mind.
Moana was going to save the world.
“Moana!” you cried.
Maui flung her from the ship into the sand. You ran and helped her up. He was getting away. “Thanks for the ship!” he laughed.
He pushed it into the water. You jumped and ran at him. You yanked the paddle out of hand. Swung your arm back, full force and let him have it with one swift whack of the paddle. “Hey!” He fell into the water. He resurfaced. Angry.
You grounded yourself. Moana now by your side. You held the paddle threateningly. “We can do this one of two ways. Moan and I leave you left for dead-”
“I can’t die. I’m a Demigod.” Maui laughed.
“You can suffer.” you said firmly. “Either come with us and restore the Heart, or stay here for eternity with only your massive ego to accompany to the end of time. But as the world dies, you will have to live with the fact that it is your fault. When you could’ve done something about it.”
You were fuming.
Maui was left speechless. Moana a little bit too.
Maui sighed. “Humans. So ungrateful. Get on the boat. We’re going to go save the world.”
Moana smiled at you. Your anger softened at her smile and you smiled back at her. The three of you jumped onto the boat. Off to restore the Heart of Tafiti.
You don’t know when you knew it. Maybe it was her laugh. Her smile. Her love and determination. Maybe it was just her. Before you set sail for Tafiti and all the adventures that would follow it. All the near death experiences.
Anytime you had doubts or fears, Moana was there. You were there for her too. There never was a moment that she was truly alone. You wouldn’t let her be.
You can’t put a finger on a point in time when you knew. Maybe it was that feeling that hit you when she laughed, when you knocked Maui out with a paddle. Or her standing courageously, in front of Tafiti, just a moment from death’s touch. As she restored the heart, you felt she had truly touched your heart too.
You are lost in the haze of applause and praise. The hugs that say I-thought-you-were-gone-forever. The way you hold her all the time. Because you’re so afraid that one day it might be true. You are limp when your family smothers you in hugs and kisses. Thinking of the day you met Moana and how she changed your life forever. Replaying your journey across the world you just returned from. From the beginning she was your everything, and you weren’t going to ever let go of that. You were nothing without Moana.
You tear apart from your family and tear through the crowd. You break free of the haze. Your only focus on one girl. Pushing past everyone. Ignoring everyone who was pulling you back. Finally breaking free of the hold of your thoughts. You had a little voice of your own. It was time you started listening to it.
“(Y/N)?” Moana says, as you push her father away from her.
You just grab her and kiss her. You wrap your arms around her, and hold her as she is your everything.
Moana pulls away. Out of breath. “(Y/N)…”
“No.” you say. “I have to say this.” you hold her hands. “Moana. I would sail every sea. I would journey across the world for you.” you laugh. “I just did. Because it isn’t any different. Moana, you are my world. I don’t know when I knew it. Maybe I’ve always known. I guess I just chose to listen to my own little voice for once. For the longest time, I listened to my doubts and fears. But today I’m listening to my heart. Do you know what it is saying?”
“What?” she laughs.
You move in closer. “It’s calling for you.”
Moana kisses you and takes you by surprise. Pulling away from just a moment. “Mine too.”
You kiss with everyone’s eyes on you. But you only have one focus. A girl who isn’t even seventeen. A girl who changed your world and opened your eyes to a whole new world. A girl who is your whole world.
