— Yves Navarre, Friends Gone With the Wind

anonymous asked:

You are the first and only writer I have read for this fandom. I love your work so much, I've re read all your Arrow stories twice (even the Firefly one even though I've never watched it). Do you have any favorite Olicity fics to recommend to keep me from going crazy my first hiatus? (I binged the first 4 seasons last year)

This is awesome!! Thank you! I’m super honored. And do I have recs? Oh yes, I have recs. 

First rec isn’t actually a fic, it’s a resource… @theolicitylibrary. If you want recs, they’ve got ‘em. If you want a specific trope or rating or genre, they’ve got that, too. Have a hankering for a fic where Oliver and Felicity are business rivals? There’s a link for that. Where she’s the vigilante instead? There’s a link for that, too. Where one of them is a werewolf? Yup. They’re an amazing resource and you can lose days (and weeks and months) going through lists of alpha/omega tropes and rockstar AUs and friends-to-lovers fics. 

But more specifically… how about I rec some authors, too? I haven’t been reading much lately - I spend all my time writing - so I’m more comfortable reccing authors I know are amazing and whose works I’m looking forward to catching up on. They’re all consistently excellent. This is by no means an all inclusive list.

@dust2dust34 - My co-writer for FiCoN and personal fav (though I admit to no small amount of bias). If you want smut and you want details and mining a scene for feelings, Bre is your girl. She has plenty of oneshots to choose from as well as some multichapter fics.  

@machawicket - Look, I can’t overstate Danielle’s skills as a writer. My husband doesn’t even read my fic but he likes hers. Her writing is funny, sweet, sexy and heartbreaking in turn but it’ll never leave you unsatisfied. She’s a master. 

@anthfan - Nikki is one of those writers that’s so good she makes you forget you’re reading a story, because it’s just something you’re living. It’s an experience. Her characterization is spot-on and her plots are super engaging. She writes both one-shots and longer stories. They’re all worth your time.

@hannasus - Susannah’s writing is the perfect balance of detailed exposition and tight narrative that lets you feel like you’ve experienced the whole setting in just a few lines. Add to that fully in-character characterization and interesting plots that keep you reading and you really can’t go wrong. I recommend reading her Something Like Fate series ASAP as she’s adapted it into the basis for an original novel (which she’s publishing later this year) and it may not be up on AO3 a whole lot longer. 

@rosietwiggs - I can always tell Rosie’s work in just a few lines. Her narrative voice is so very distinctive and so gripping that it pulls me in effortlessly. I don’t believe she’s writing for Arrow anymore, but even her unfinished works are worth a read. I especially recommend The New Normal, Lengths and How The Mighty Fall In Love.

@supersillyanddorky06 - I’d be surprised if you hadn’t heard around about Matty’s writing because she’s right at the core of the Olicity fandom’s best known fanfics. With good reason. She’s prolific, plotty, smutty and evocative. If you have a weakness for Bratva!Oliver, I’d start here. 

@jsevick - I first met Jaimie after reading her Jurassic Park AU (really!) and being both delighted and amazed that she could make it work. I’m extremely lucky to have had her help as my beta pretty much ever since. If you like my writing, she’s a big part of it (along with @alizziebyanyothername). While she hasn’t posted in a while, her stories are just fun and if you like Gilmore Girls, her Arrow AU for Gilmore Girls is a treat!

@realityisoverrated-fic - I have no idea how you would feel about Smoaking Billionaires, Anon (I personally love it), but I’ve got to very highly recommend her Infinite Love series. At 110 parts and counting, it deals extensively with Oliver, Felicity and Tommy’s family longterm, including their kids. It’s alternately hot, sweet, and heartbreaking. But, most of all, it’s just well-written and interesting. If you’re willing to read them as a triad, I cannot recommend this strongly enough.

@geneeste - I would pay for more of Caught a Long Wind. Quite literally. But, that aside, Genie is a top notch writer. Whether her one-shots, WiPs or brilliant, ongoing epic co-written work with @machawicket, everything she writes should be devoured. 

@juliesioux - Julie uses the setting in a story as another character. There’s so much life to the world she puts her characters in that it practically breathes. Above that, she doesn’t shy away from hard topics. She will rush in head-first and dig deep to explore what her characters are going through. When you read her work, take her warnings seriously, but if you’re looking for a rich story to read that challenges you, she’s the perfect option to turn to.

@thatmasquedgirl - One of the most prolific Olicity fic authors (with 110 fics, including the absolute opus Technical Assistance). She’s consistently excellent, creative and she gives us as a fandom a whole lot to read. You can probably spent a huge chunk of hiatus happily buried in her work.

@entersomethingcleverhere - As a rule, I do not read first person stories. Not even when they’re published books sitting on shelves at my bookstore. I will break that rule for her writing. I like it that much. It’s heartfelt, moving, well-paced, and the connections between her characters are both real and evolving as you go. 

@arrow-through-my-writers-block - Shelby is… well, she’s just fun! She’s a solid writer who never disappoints. She’s got quite a few one-shots and a few ongoing multi-chapters. She’s probably best known for Starstruck, but all of her work is worth reading.  

@wagamiller - I just really love wagamiller’s work. Like a lot. There are very few authors I have on alert, but wagamiller is. Stories that make me laugh out loud are few and far between, but the 35B series surely did (as did @machawicket‘s Unbearable Hotness of Being, btw). Strong, sharp, witty writing that will leave you with a grin on your face.

@callistawolf - When I think of Callie’s work, I think of the fanfic version of sitting down with some hot cocoa and curling up with a warm blanket to watch a Hallmark Christmas special. She’s consistently excellent about finishing her work, which is lovely, and you can pretty much always count on a feel-good romantic ending. 

@hopedreamlovepray - Writing one-shots that stick with your reader is hard. Keeping a story to 1-2k and still being impactful is even harder. She absolutely manages it every time. Hope27 (as she’s known on AO3, so you can find her) has something like a hundred Olicity fics. These are, in my opinion, absolutely perfect if you want to lose yourself in a story on the train to work or during your lunch hour. 

@dettiot - Mel has a lot of great stories (like really great). My favorite is probably the “ink in my pen ran dry” series, but that’s a really tough call. Core Curriculum is super hot. The Felicity Stark series (crossover with Avengers-verse) is brilliant and fun and made me giddy while reading it. Beauty in the Breakdown is excellent. Jerry the EA series features one of the best takes on a relative OC I’ve read in fics. Love is Red made me squeal like a teenager with excitement (I’m not ashamed; it was warranted). And Two Men, Same Name (written with @melsanfo) is one of those that I am absolutely dying for the time to catch up on. While I’m at it, let’s rec Mel Sanfo, too. Her Masquerade is another novel-length fic absolutely worth a read. You really can’t go wrong with either of these ladies. 

@ash818 - Ash is freaking awesome. So, here’s the thing. Her Legacy series is mind-blowingly good. I have to admit, I’ve only read The Man Under The Hood in the series (this is intentional, for a reason you’ll see in a moment, but you need to read all of her work ASAP, okay? You do). This series… you’ve got future, married Olicity with teenage children as they continue their mission. There’s action, plot, heartbreak, angst, love, everything you could want. It’s in first person from their son’s perspective which is something I would probably never have clicked on in the first place had it not come highly recommended, but good lord is it amazing. All of her characters have life. All of them have depth. Her OCs are fully formed and vital to the story without overshadowing characters you already know. I haven’t read the later stories because after I decided to continue on with FiCoN verse, I didn’t want to inadvertently shade my views on Olicity’s growing family and continuing mission with anything she did in her series. If anything I do happens to run parallel to her work, I want to know beyond any doubt that it’s 100% coincidence. But her stories are something I’m absolutely itching to get to read… eventually. Her writing is excellent.  

@tinaday3w - I’m tempted to say “JUST READ IT” but that’s probably not enough… But really, just read it. No one does slow burn like Tina. Victorian era AU with pirate!Oliver? Yes, please. Hello. I’ll take two.

@emmilynestill - She’s just so good. And sooooo hot. I don’t know if you know this, Anon, but writing a good sex scene is hard. You don’t want your reader pulled out of the scene by wondering if a position is actually possible or when underwear came off (or if it did) or how gravity isn’t making them collapse. Like… smut is difficult. But it reads so effortlessly with Emmilyne’s writing. And, beyond that, she weaves it in beautifully with plot that keeps you wondering what’s next and emotion that builds and grows in an organic way. Orgasms and organic feelings. Honestly, what else could anyone really want?

@ruwithmeguys - Jess will gut you and leave you asking her to do it again. Indecent Proposal… just… read the warnings and be ready and read it with a lot of time on your hands and probably in chunks because ouch. But still… read it.

@academyofshipping - Sarah has this dry sense of humor that comes out in her fics that’s as clever as it is fun. Fluffy, funny, smart, cute and rich with feeling, Sarah’s writing is consistently strong. 

@someonesaidcake - Felice is fantastic for completed, multichapter AU fics. She has quite a few and I’m pretty sure every single one included smut at some point (if that’s your thing) as well as plot. 

And… I’ve spent like an hour and a half on this which was a lovely diversion for my day. I know I’m forgetting amazing people but I have to stop here. When in doubt, take the title of a fic you like, google that name in quotes along with “rec list” and find someone’s list where that story was included, then explore the others. Or, check the bookmarks on AO3 of an author you like, that’s a great place to mine for fics, too. And, again, I can’t rec @theolicitylibrary enough. That said… happy reading, Anon! We’ll get through this hiatus together… through fic and sheer force of will. ;-)

I’m emotionally exhausted and angry: Why Sense8 being cancelled is not about losing a good TV show, it’s about what that says about the current state of the world.

[READ ON MEDIUM]

My list of favorite shows (other than sense8) includes things like Torchwood and Agent Carter, so clearly I have a thing for doomed TV shows and I’m not new to the feeling of betrayal and lost that comes with your average cancellation, but I believe that sense8 is not your average situation and that’s why it has been trending worldwide on twitter for 8+ hours and it made so many people deeply upset.

Sense8 being cancelled is the entertainment industry equivalent of Trump winning the elections. In Freema Agyeman’s words: ‘A real kick in the teeth for everyone who is striving to make TV more representational & inclusive’. And, because that’s the way media works, a direct reflection of what’s going on in the rest of world right now. And it happened in the fucking first day of pride month, no less.

Touching final tribute to #PeterCapaldi! Fan’s #sonicscrewdrivers pointed to the sky captured in a selfie by @DoctorWho_BBCA cast #SDCC17 (x)

therealpearlmackie Adventures from #SDCC

A few of the 6500 people in Hall H that screamed for us on our #doctorwho panel today, and quite rightly, gave #Petercapaldi a standing ovation for his beautiful work as The Doctor. I think I cried about three times. Not really sure what will ever top this experience. Thank you for such an amazing reception!
#Billisback one last time for the Christmas special. You’re gonna love it about as much as I loved today.

soft wolfie headcanons, part 2

I have more to say about this!! his softness can’t be contained in just one post

  • He used to love painting in art class when he was younger and even though he doesn’t do it as a hobby or anything now and he’d never admit he likes it, he’ll jump at any chance he gets to do it (remember evil santa in the Christmas special? My boy likes to paint)
  • Also he has a really nice singing voice!! He had a solo in his school’s choir presentation ffs, you know he can sing. He also gave that up as he grew older because then his dad was an asshole but We Don’t Talk About That, but he still sings sometimes - karaoke bars with Felix, singing in the shower, listening to music in the car, you name it. It reminds him of the times when he was really young and his dad was gone and he and his mum would put on music and dance for a bit
  • His lil red nose in the winter. just. let that sink in
  • He looove love loves watching the first snow fall. He loves the fresh new smell in the air, he loves sitting at the window in his flat or a coffee shop or anywehre he happens to be and quietly watching, waiting for it to start sticking and building up. He likes how new it looks, how full of possibility before it inevitably turns grey and sludgy and stepped on
  • He and Kala are aaaalways holding hands when they’re walking around the city. He just likes it! They both do. Feels good, feels organic
  • Woflie’s also super soft with the rest of the cluster? Like if someone drops by or he shows up in another city (and if no one’s getting murdered or anything) he’s just so nice? Helping Lito cook dinner for Dani and Hernando, lying on the couch with Nomi and Neets watching american TV, talking about favorite action movies with Capheus… he just likes hanging out with the fam

You awoke to the sound of your phone vibrating on your nightstand. You groaned sleepily, the sun was just barely up. Who could be calling this early? Didn’t they know you needed your sleep?

“Hello?” you grumbled.

“Happy anniversary!!!” You heard an excited Jaebum yell from the other end.

So, 
The last 20 years of my life has been pretty hard. I grew up bouncing from home to home, not having a home, staying with friends, eating ramen and pot pies for all my meals, living in horrible conditions, and honestly making due with anything I had. I am thankful for what I did have. Now that I’m coming out of the bad I can actually see how BAD it was. When I was there I didn’t think any of it was bad, I loved getting to go shopping with my mom at goodwill for my birthday, it wasn’t that I was getting something it was the time I got with my mom. I have gone through decent years and I’ve gone through really bad years, years when Thanksgiving and Christmas didn’t exist, we just acted like the day wasn’t special. That might be why I find Christmas so special. As a child I was surrounded by family during Christmas, we may not have gotten a surplus of gifts or had an extravagant dinner, but my family was there and that did mean more than any gift could ever mean to me. Of course as a child I didn’t realise family meant more than any gifts, so sometimes I thought my Christmas was so horrid compared to my friends. Money wise it was really bad, but now I see it shouldn’t have mattered. So this year, I am away from home and it honestly couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m about 16,000 miles away from my family and yes it’s hard. Especially with my own birthday coming soon. But as hard as it is, it seems so natural. I’ve needed this. This is my light at the end of the tunnel. I’m not drowning in money, I’m not even really financially comfortable, but before I left home things got worse, way worse than I could have even imagined.  My family divided in a way, in a way I can’t really describe. Sides were taken and I was left trying to fight for something I wanted: Family. But it’s not there anymore. There are some people who just don’t understand the value of relationships, some people would rather pick hatred over kindness in any form. There are manipulative upon us, you can’t and won’t beat them, it doesn’t matter how kind you are or if you become hollow shell, they find this way of making you seem like something you aren’t. I learned walking away can sometimes be the best thing to do. Fighting a battle that will never end in my favour isn’t healthy. You cannot give love to someone who doesn’t want it. 
So, I did it. I walked away and I feel free in a way. 
I will never forget how I was raised and the hard times I’ve gone through. It doesn’t matter what I do in the future, how much money I make, or how amazing life is in the future. It was hard, it was really hard. But I made it work, when I was very young, I figured out I wasn’t like the others and I wanted to be like them. I have wanted to be like the rest for 20 years but today something has changed. I’m so ready to accept the past, and walk on out of my tunnel. 
I guess what I’m trying to tell you is, it may seem like more than you can take right now, but you’re stronger than you seem, trust me. There will be fights, there will be sadness and everything in between. But you will come out of whatever you’re in with a whole new perspective. Even if your tunnel is 45 years long, there is relief. 

Sense8 cancellation rant

I fell in love with this show from the very first episode back in 2015. I was lucky enough to have found it though, as it was my sister’s friend who gave us the suggestion (I’m not sure how she originally found the show). Point being, Sense8 was never a publicized event.
After binge watching the whole first season, I cried (lol because the finale of season 1 compared to season 2 was so put together), and then I instantly googled to see when season 2 would be out.
Nothing.
A day or so later I googled it again.
Still nothing.
As I waited for any news of the renewal for season 2 I rewatched what had become the only tv show I had ever really formed an attachment to. I followed the cast on social media so I would be up to date with the cluster, and I waited and waited.
I watched the live Google hang out, sure that it was going to include an announcement for season 2, and I was extremely disheartened when Brian J. Smith straight out said they still didn’t have an answer.
I rewatched the season again.
I watched the behind the scenes documentary.
And then I watched it again.
August 8th pulled around and at this time I was well aware of the first renew sense8 scare in the fandom, little did I know it wouldn’t be our last time fighting to keep this fantastic show alive.
I watched 8 hands take a slice of the birthday cake and when they cleared it away and revealed the renewal for the second season I was thrilled!
Then came the waiting, again.
I rewatched season 1 definitely over 10 times and that’s not even an exaggeration. I lived for this show because it was unlike anything I’d ever seen before, and I had really tried getting into cult follower tv before, such as Greys Anatomy, yet the drama in those shows seemed fake and forced, the relationships toxic, and the representation (both behind the scenes and on screen) to be lacking. Sense8 gave me the real life problems, with tangible hope, and healthy relationships that didn’t have petty arguments to fill in for a broken plot. This show is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and I showed it to everyone as I waited for the Christmas special to be released.
My friend got her Netflix account because of this show, and I got so many people to at least watch the first episode because I wanted them to know how great it was.
The Christmas special came out and it was everything I wanted and more, and I fell in love with the show’s fearlessness as it faced all of the problems of today and incorporated them into a beautiful cinematic experience.
We had to write dramatic monologues in my AP literature class one day and I wrote mine about Riley because she is my favorite sensate (although I really do love them all). I read mine for the class and everyone was supposed to guess who it was about, and nobody guessed mine because Netflix never promoted it anywhere. No one had heard of it, and my teacher took off points for choosing a character that was “too obscure”.
Finally season 2 came out and I watched it as fast as I could. It was so much more than I could have expected and I loved everything about it, and as I was reading articles that cited sources saying most of the sensates had already signed up for season 3 I felt confident that that is what would happen, a season 3, because it was a cliff hanger and obviously needed to be resolved. It had all the stars on Netflix and even more of my friends had started watching it because of my recommendations.
And then it was cancelled the first day of pride month, of all days, and within a month of season 2’s release. It was completely unexpected to me, the fandom, and I had so many friends text me saying “SENSE8 IS CANCELLED, WHATTT??” Because absolutely no one saw this coming. It was a growing show that was killed before it could realize it’s full potential and the audience it does have is fiercely loyal to it. This show deserves a season 3. This show deserves it more than 13 reasons why deserves a season 2 and so many other sub par shows on Netflix that don’t have the same supportive messages, representation, acting skill, and intricate plot, so @netflix, please reconsider your cancellation and renew Sense8 for season 3 because this show means so much to so many people and it has been gaining so many new fans who are all now hesitant to keep watching because they don’t want to get attached knowing it has ended (at least for the moment).

anonymous asked:

Which sensate do you think is each other's favorite (outside of their romantic partner for those involved)?

omg I LOVE this question, thank you anon!

Capheus –Kala. They’re both kind of the optimists of the group. I can really see them bonding over all sorts of lovely things. They probably have movie nights every once in a while, and they visit each other when one of them’s cooking and they swap recipes for the other to try and they talk about love and life and wonderful things.

Lito – Nomi. She’s levelheaded without being dry or mean and sometimes it’s just what Lito needs. He actually admires her quite a lot for many reasons, not the least of which is her bravery and her refusal to be anything less than who she wants to be. Plus she can also be a bit of a drama queen herself and she’s witty and funny and lots of fun to be around.

Will – Wolfgang. They’re on the same wavelength a lot of the time. Wolfgang can definitely be the kind of bro’s bro Will can go out for a beer with, but he’s also a fierce friend who will do anything to protect the people he cares about. Will also really appreciates Wolfgang’s mind, the way he’s smart in ways most other people aren’t.

Wolfgang –Sun. They’re the zero bullshit, tell it like it is squad together. He appreciates that she’s straightforward without being unkind, and calculating with just enough of a hint of recklessness. They respect the fuck out of each other, those two. I can see them out having a smoke on a rooftop somewhere, sometimes talking about all sorts of things, and sometimes just staying in silence, enjoying each other’s company.

Kala – Will. I feel such a huge potential for friendship between these two. She really appreciates Will’s kindness and how everything he does is born out of love for the people close to him. He’s sort of a big brother for her, and they get along extremely well.

Riley – Kala. They have a sort of sisterly bond. They talk about everything – music and movies and boys and life and sex and books. I bet they have a lot of late night chats, especially when Riley’s feeling down about life (I feel like she has a bit of a depressive streak, what with everything she’s been through), and Kala just sits in bed with her and runs her fingers through Riley’s hair and talks about the chemistry behind drugs or the music in her favorite Bollywood films until Riley falls asleep.

Sun – Capheus. I really liked their dynamic in the Christmas special particularly. She loves the way Capheus genuinely admires her, especially because she didn’t get a lot of that growing up. And with a life as complicated and often shitty as hers, she needs a healthy dose of Capheus’ positivity. She can feel free to put her walls down a bit around Capheus, doesn’t have to pretend to be hard all the time and can instead just relax and enjoy things with him around.

Nomi – Wolfgang. He’s actually really deep and wise when the situation calls for it, which Nomi appreciates a lot. I mean, “Fear never fixed anything”? “Pretending isn’t a life”? Basically Nomi’s life philosophy. Also she honestly just loves how nothing embarrasses him.  She keeps trying to one-up him in that department by asking should-be embarrassing questions out of nowhere, until one day she asks what was the weirdest sex he’d ever had and his answer was So Much she couldn’t look at him for a week straight (hint, there was a strap-on, a makeshift swing, a very angry park ranger, and a hefty public misdemeanor fine to top it all off).

Pardon Our Ectoplasm

Christmas Truce gift for @anemptymorgue, who asked for something humorous to do with Amity Park’s general citizens and their relationship with ghosts. Hope you like it!

This, Wes berated himself, is why you didn’t do last-minute Christmas shopping in Amity. “But you can’t be sold out!”

The blue-shirted associate - Neil, according to his name tag- shrugged. “Sorry sir; we’re technically not sold out- we’re out of stock.”

“What’s the difference?!”

“One has us selling things like a normal store, and the other one is that cyber ghost popping through the ceiling and making our inventory attack people like it was the machine uprising.” 

Another associate sweeping up broken and scorched plastic added, “Only instead of killer robots it was iPads and overpriced HDMI cables.”

“The cyber ghost?” Kwan piped up behind Wes. “Which one is that?”

“Yeah, y’know…the cyber ghost?” At their blank expression, Neil pressed. “Come on: green skin, lab coat, lame shades? Has that shrieky voice that sounds like that one dude?”

Wes glanced back at Kwan, Dash, and Dale, who all shrugged. 

“Wait, Terry would totally know this. He’s a big Ecto-Fanboy.” He called across the store, loud and echoing with nothing but empty shelves between them. “Hey Tere! What was the name of that ghost yesterday! The techie one?”

“You mean Technus?” someone across the store hollered back. “How do you forget that? He talks in the third person! He was constantly telling people his name. The first thing he said was ‘It is I, Technus, Master of Machines and all that goes beep-boop!’ He did it in that weird Gilbert Gottfried kinda voice.”

Neil snapped his fingers. “Gilbert Gottfried, that was it!”

A Sweet Christmas Kiss

2. Kiss on the forehead

Listening to the radio and feelin festive~

(Also Available on AO3)



Harry stared up at the rough wooden beams on the ceiling and blinked. The world was swimming slightly and he frowned at it. Then he remembered, he was drunk. It was, he was… at a Christmas party, no, a pre-christmas party with friends, lots of friends. He had had a drink, recently, but someone had taken it from him and now he was laying on the couch staring at the ceiling. He wasn’t really that drunk, somewhere passed buzzed and treading in the beneficent shallows of drunk but not really one or the other properly. Beneficent. Beneficent, what a fantastic fucking word. He wasn’t sure what it even meant-

The wireless was playing christmas songs and Harry perked up as it switched songs and started singing along absently, “Last Christmas, I gave you my heart~ But the very next day, you gave it away~”

“Must you take up the whole couch, Potter?” Draco sighed.

Harry broke off from his singing and grinned up at him. With some difficulty, he grabbed the back of the couch and pulled himself up.

Draco sat down and Harry dropped back down, his head falling onto Draco’s lap.

Draco glared at him, “How much have you had to drink?”

“Too much an’ entirely not enough.” Harry bemoaned, reaching up and sliding his hand along Draco’s cheek and down his chin, “But is better now.” His hand dropped back to his chest.

“Really now?” He arched one perfect fucking eyebrow at Harry.

Harry was still grinning like a fool. He turned his head as the christmas song caught his attention again and caught on to the end of the verse, “-you gave it away~ This year, to save me from tears~ I’ll give it to someone special~”

“What are you giving away?” Draco asked.

“My heart,” Harry said, looking back up at Draco.

“Muggle music is really so strange,” Draco mused, cocking his head as he listened to the song round out to the last refrain.

Harry happily sang the verse one more time, it was one of his favorite christmas songs because it was just so pretty and lovely to sing, “Last Christmas, I gave you my heart~ But the very next day, you gave it away~” He watched Draco mouthing along to the words silently, whispering the last two he had heard Harry sing already, “This year, to save me from tears~ I’ll give it to someone special~” Harry smiled at the low thrum of Draco’s voice, audible to only him.

Draco’s hand gently threaded through Harry’s hair and he asked, “Who are you going to give your heart then?”

Harry laughed and then relaxed into a gentle smile, “I can’t give ‘way something I haven’t got anymore.” He reached up and pressed his palm against Draco’s chest, “ ’S right here.”

Draco stared down at him and shook his head slightly, “You’re a complete sap and absolutely hopeless, Potter.”

“You’re a Potter too, you know,” Harry said.

Draco placed his hand over Harry’s, “Oh, I know,” he lamented playfully, brushing Harry’s hair back and kissing his forehead.

“What 'bout your heart?” Harry said softly, happily losing himself in Draco’s dove grey eyes.

Draco smiled, “You’re taking very good care of it.”


All Kiss Prompts Completed and Requested Thus Far

I need to get out of the feels.

I’ve joined the fan-base in 2008, just before The Next Doctor Christmas Special and the announcement Matt Smith will be replacing David Tennant. I have really enjoyed the show back then and was crashed that my favourite Doctor is soon to be gone. I remember when the Waters of Mars premiered and it was the first time when the show went really, really dark and people were proclaiming 10th was insane now. But I loved it! I love when the Doctor/Doctor Who goes dark/wrong, does some shady stuff. Cool.

Wasn’t that much of a fan in case of 11th Doctor and it wasn’t until Clara when I started to warm up a bit to this incarnation. But at the end 1) I didn’t shitpost on him 2) warmed up to Matt Smith a bit and liked his relationship with Clara 3) was really looking forward to 12th and Peter Capaldi. I know that 11th is well received amongst fans, but still the vibe of his era just didn’t click with me and Moffat wasn’t as good as he is now.

But from my perspective none of the too above received as much criticism as Peter Capaldi and it’s just ridiculous. I get that his era is the darkest up to date, but also Capaldi has much more outstanding episodes then 10th & 11th combined. I have never felt this show so dear to me before. Yet PCap is the most criticised Doctor overall (in new who at least). I regularly see him being dismissed because of some ageism bullshit (he is old so he can’t act apparently), people not giving him enough love he deserves, shitposting that this is Moffat so it must be bad (despite of not watching a single episode), claiming Jodie Whittaker is already better and skipping entire 12th run. It just saddens me, because PCap deserves so much better both from fans and from BBC, but now it just feels that he will be overshadowed by the 13th Doctor.

And I am just tired of this. I really want to enjoy 13th, but still celebrate my beloved 12th, but I am so bloody tired of this ongoing hatred towards him everywhere I go.
