i warned you i was probably going to start doing book recs


As it’s coming up to Valentine’s day I thought I would put a rec together of all my favourite Valentine’s themed fics!

Hope you enjoy, and remember as always, make sure you check rating, tags and warnings on all fics!

Always (1/1 | 1,066 | Not Rated)

Derek’s in love with Stiles but thinks he’s about to lose him. Stiles was never going to let Derek go in the first place. Fluff ensues.

Sometimes love is an obligation to your grandmother (1/1 | 6,982 | Rated M)

Dearest Derek,

Welcome to your 21st year! As per the wonderful tradition of the house of Hale, you will be attending some of the best places to be single that Beacon Hills has to offer today. First, it’s to the Coffee Shop on Main where you will get two lemon zest chocolate chip muffins. Listen to me very carefully, I’m going to ease you into the way this works. Buy two muffins, but you’re only going to eat one. Find someone cute to give the second one to…

The letter went on, but Derek was staring at it in horror, unable to process how terrible that sounded in just the first paragraph. Today was going to suck.


Or: Derek’s grandmother relishes setting her single grandchildren up on Valentine’s Day. Only, less ‘setting up’ and more ‘forcing them to run a singles-only scavenger hunt where the prize is love or at least sex’.

Derek never wins. Derek never WANTS TO win.

Kiss Me Under the Light of a Thousand Stars (1/1 | 5,631 | Not Rated)

“It was a true love spell,” he admits quietly. “It was supposed to help me find my true love. And apparently I suck at magic as much as I suck at dating because I screwed this up too.”


In which Stiles’ Valentine’s Day love spell goes very wrong.

Or perhaps very right.

Valentine’s strike (2/2 | 6,015 | PG-13)

Stiles hates Valentines Day. It was the bane of his existance. But he’s home for the 'holiday’ and has nothing to do since everyone he knows is busy. Except Derek, Derek is the only one alone as him.


The five times Derek and Stiles date by accident and the one time one of them actually ask.

Thank Jackson for me (1/1 | 3,187 | PG-13)

Derek keeps asking the wrong kind of questions.

Hot for Teacher(’s Aide) (1/1 | 8,050 | PG-13)

“He invited you to his apartment.”

“To do a lesson plan.”

“Yeah and to probably lesson your plan while you’re there,” Scott said, waggling his eyebrows.

“That made no sense, but you still managed to make it sound dirty,” Stiles said. “I’m impressed.”

kokkynly  asked:

Hey I was wondering if there were any fics where Harry or Draco gets a snake and Harry can talk to it. Thank you so much!!

I actually had so much fun making this rec list! I forgot how much I loved stories where Harry spoke to snakes <33

  • A Sound Like Serpents Singing - by Lomonaaeren (12k)
    When Draco Malfoy wants a magical snake for his son, he turns to the best in the magical world—serpent-breeder Harry Potter. Harry, who thought that all his past grudges had been settled, is startled by the way he responds to Malfoy. For many reasons.
    (Lomonaaeren has been able to create a rich and detailed world full of numerous, intricate details about snakes and snake breeding. It was such a fun read, a real pleasure to the eyes)

  • Hyperion by Lomonaaeren (6k)
    Scenes in the life as Harry gets to know Draco and Scorpius and breeds a snake capable of seeing the future in the stars.
    (This is the sequel to A Sound Like Serpents Singing. I loved reading this because it brought you right back into the world that Lomonaaeren created for A Sound Like Serpents Singing. Marvellous!)

  • Serpentes - by xErised (29k)
    It’s a shame that Draco Malfoy looks so good stripping in a club with stolen snakes, because Auror Harry’s got a job to do.
    (With the help of a viper named Bacon, Harry is investigating Malfoy’s gay dance bar that doubles as headquarters for an illegal snake trafficking ring. This story is amazingly hot, with so much sexual tension going on between our boys! There was heapsss of sexy scenes and you’ll honestly fall in love with Bacon as he’s the king of sass)

  • Turn - by Saras_Girl (306k)
    One good turn always deserves another. Apparently.
    (Harry has a snake called Frank. This fic destroyed me! A strange man gives Harry a glimpse into a life where after the Sectumsempra incident, Harry offers his Help to Draco. He’s transported to this alternate reality, but because it’s only a glimpse, Harry has to come back to his real life. It’s devastating when he comes back though, as he’s fallen so in love with the alternate reality where he and Draco are together. All of the characters are stunningly portrayed and I was completely engrossed in this story)

  • Draco’s Secret Box - by seri-kun (vanijane) (2k)
    Harry is bored while waiting for Draco to finish his bath and so, his pet snake has decided to help him pass the time–
    “Whatever is inside this box often leaves Draco with a loss of time. Surely this would benefit you right now.”
    Harry was certain that wanking off while Draco was humming in the showers wasn’t proper and if Draco would catch him, Harry was sure Draco would never let him live it down.
    (Harry’s a Slytherin and he has a pet snake that shows him all the letters Draco ever wrote to him, but never sent. Very cute and adorable!)

  • The Sounds of Sibilance - by create_serenity (Sivany) (5k)
    Draco really wished he’d never suggested buying that bloody snake!
    (Draco and Harry are auror partners. Draco has the grand idea of letting Harry buy a snake to help them out on their missions. Unfortunately for Draco, he has a massive kink for Parseltongue ;) This fic was undeniably hot!)

  • Slithering - by astolat (27k)
    Draco found the nest down in the Manor’s cellars, while he was clearing them out.
    (In which Draco finds Nagini’s nest and raises one of her hatchlings + some Drarry drama and angst)

  • A Brother to Basilisks - by Lomonaaeren (419k)
    AU of PoA. Harry wakes in the night to a voice calling him from somewhere in the castle—and when he follows it, everything changes. Updated every Friday.
    (Harry has a basilisk familiar named Dash - who, by the way, is the most adorable and loyal companion anyone could ever wish for. Once again, Lomonaaeren has created a stunning and utterly captivating universe. I really don’t want to spoil anything more because I love this story so much, and I hope you guys do as well! Warnings: Incomplete, but author updates fic every Friday.)


  • Coffee, Cakes and Doorknob Snakes - by Omi_Ohmy (40k)
    Harry’s house is trying to kill him, and only one person can help him: pity it’s Draco Malfoy.
    (Okay so Harry’s house, which is Grimmauld Place, is trying to kill him. In comes Draco Malfoy, the best curse-breaker there is, who tries and figures out what’s wrong with Harry’s house. Harry actually speaks a fair amount of Parseltongue in this story to the doorknobs (which have been designed as snakes and come alive when talked to). Let’s not forget how turned on Draco gets whenever Harry speaks parseltongue as well!)

  • Leo Inter Serpentes Series - by Aeternum
    Just one conversation between two eleven year old boys goes slightly differently, and the world changes. Just how much will be different with Harry being sorted into Slytherin, and how much will stay the same?
    (Harry converses with a garden snake every summer, there’s a painting of a snake - called Ollie - who he talks to quite a lot from 2nd year onwards (during this year Harry also tries to teach Draco Parseltongue!), and then Severus gives Harry his very own snake companion in the 5th book (which he named Ladon). Leo Inter Serpentes is a retelling of the whole HP series, but with a Slytherin!Harry. The storyline for each year is quite unique and it’s honestly one of my favourite series/fics out there! Warning: Year 6 is incomplete but author still updates and Year 7 has already been planned out)

  • Cunning and Ambition Series - by MinaAndChao
    One small gesture and one simple sentence change lives, and through it, history.
    (Draco gives Harry a snake for his 13th birthday in the 3rd of the series. Cunning and Ambition has so many heartwarming and heartbreaking moments - I just fell in love with it from the start! Warning: Series goes from years 1-5, but unfortunately year 6 has been abandoned :()

  • Hissy Fit - by dysonrules (28k)
    Harry is an under-utilized Auror and Draco is an auditor for Gringotts. He lives to torment the Ministry and, of course, Harry Potter. He is also a Registered Animagus.
    (Hilarious and fun! It’s where Draco helps Harry on one of his auror missions by transforming into his animagus form - a snake. The banter between Harry and Draco is amazing and you’ll probably suffer from a cuteness overload while reading this story)

hula-hoopist  asked:

(If you have the time) you should do a book rec list!!

$Definitely!! I’m just going to include the ones that I’ve read that have resonated with me personally, so please feel free to message me for specific recs (Scifi, romance, wlw, etc) and i’ll look into making a more refined list for you.  Reading is truly such a positive outlet, regardless of age, and I really hope there is something on here for everyone to love as much as I did.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz.  Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be. 

This book is so important.  It follows two Mexican-America boys, through the 80s in Texas, and at the very heart of all of it, is a love so pure and intense, it made me genuinely choke up with how intimate it was. (Try not to fall in love with Dante, I dare you, you will fail, just as hard as Ari)

Girl Mans Up  by M-E Gerard. All Pen wants is to be the kind of girl she’s always been. So why does everyone have a problem with it? They think the way she looks and acts means she’s trying to be a boy—that she should quit trying to be something she’s not. If she dresses like a girl, and does what her folks want, it will show respect. If she takes orders and does what her friend Colby wants, it will show her loyalty.But respect and loyalty, Pen discovers, are empty words. Old-world parents, disintegrating friendships, and strong feelings for other girls drive Pen to see the truth—that in order to be who she truly wants to be, she’ll have to man up.

Girl Mans Up is such a great book about gender identity for queer girls.  Pen is amazing narrator, and having it in the first person perspective is perfect for seeing just how frustrating it is to be a girl that doesn’t fit the gender role she’s expected to. (She also has a girlfriend who she stays with in the entire book and they have a wonderful relationship, no one dies 10/10)

Whatever: or how junior year became totally f$@ked by S.J. Goslee @pantstomatchJunior year is about to start. Here’s what Mike Tate knows:His friends are awesome and their crappy garage band is a great excuse to drink cheap beer. Rook Wallace is the devil. The Lemonheads rock. And his girlfriend Lisa is the coolest. Then Lisa breaks up with him, which makes Mike only a little sad, because they’ll stay friends and he never knew what to do with her boobs anyway. But when Mike finds out why Lisa dumped him, it blows his mind. And worse―he gets elected to homecoming court.With a standout voice, a hilariously honest view on sex and sexuality, and enough f-bombs to make your mom blush, S.J. Goslee’s debut YA novel Whatever. is a fresh, modern take on the coming-out story.

I’m honestly 100% certain there isn’t a summary that could do Whatever justice. I read this book because another librarian I work with suggested it to me, and I haven’t laughed out loud so much at a book since the Georgia Nicholson Diaries.  Mike is a bisexual teen who frequently doesn’t shower and hangs out with the most endearing group of straight boys you could possibly conjure up.  This book also has incredibly refreshing male/female friendships and the sweetest sibling relationship between Mike and his eccentric little sister, Rosie.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who’s ever been chosen.That’s what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he’s probably right.Half the time, Simon can’t even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor’s avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there’s a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon’s face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here–it’s their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon’s infuriating nemesis didn’t even bother to show up.

It’s Harry Potter but funnier and Harry and Draco end up together!! Actually, it’s Simon and Baz, but honestly it’s what all of our thirteen year old selves were starved for, like junkies of fanfiction.net, just looking for a fix.  I’m always a little hesitant of YA romance novels with vampires (For good reason, I think we’re all a little jaded still), but Baz is my Favorite Vampire™.  He’s funny and sarcastic and moody and just a little bit lonely, the poor thing. 

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater @maggie-stiefvaterEvery year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little.For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn’t believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore

This sort of sounds like a lovey dovey romance novel right? It’s not. There’s magic, and psychics, and dead Welsh Kings (this medieval lit major was shook), and the most fleshed out characters I’ve read in a series in about 8,000 years. I didn’t think I could fall in love with a group of spoiled prep school boys, and neither does the main character Blue, but here she is with her four husbands. 

Timekeeper by Tara Sim. In an alternate Victorian world controlled by clock towers, a damaged clock can fracture time–and a destroyed one can stop it completely. It’s a truth that seventeen-year-old clock mechanic Danny Hart knows all too well; his father has been trapped in a Stopped town east of London for three years. Though Danny is a prodigy who can repair not only clockwork, but the very fabric of time, his fixation with staging a rescue is quickly becoming a concern to his superiors. And so they assign him to Enfield, a town where the tower seems to be forever plagued with problems. Danny’s new apprentice both annoys and intrigues him, and though the boy is eager to work, he maintains a secretive distance. Danny soon discovers why: he is the tower’s clock spirit, a mythical being that oversees Enfield’s time. Though the boys are drawn together by their loneliness, Danny knows falling in love with a clock spirit is forbidden, and means risking everything he’s fought to achieve.
But when a series of bombings at nearby towers threaten to Stop more cities, Danny must race to prevent Enfield from becoming the next target or he’ll not only lose his father, but the boy he loves, forever.

I didn’t think steampunk was my thing, but I see maybe I was wrong.  Or maybe I just really love this one particular steampunk book.  Danny is so full of moxie and sarcasm and nervous sweating and tea it’s easy to see why Colton falls for him.  This book also tends to tackle really heavy subjects without you realizing its done just that.  

Malec Fic Recs

Something like six years ago I tried to read The Mortal Instruments books. I got partway through the third before failing out pretty hard. There wasn’t enough Magnus for my taste and the Magnus/Alec storyline wasn’t enough to keep me slogging through the rest of it. Then the movie was terrible too, and when the TV show came out I was like, “Nope, I’ve been on this crazy train before.” 

Luckily, I don’t live in a vacuum, and the odd gif started popping up on my dashboard. People seemed genuinely impressed with how the TV show was adapting the source material. I was bored over a weekend and decided to give it a shot. Boy, am I glad I was, because three days later I was completely caught up and making my way through the Magnus/Alec tag on AO3.

Here’s the inevitable rec post that’s resulted.

Kiss From A Rose

Shunk Week Day 3: Flower Meanings

(Fill 2/4)

Summary: Hunk and Shiro bond over a shared interest in an Altean novel series, which escalates into learning Altean flower language.  It turns out trading flowers is more fun that passing notes.

AKA No one ever make me make up fake flowers ever again

Thank you to @xagrok for beta’ing!

As Shiro opened the door, he nearly walked right into Hunk.  

“Woah, hey there,” he called, stepping carefully out of his path.  "Everything okay?“  He glanced back the way he’d come, as though he could see the reason Hunk was rushing, then realized it wasn’t because he was in a hurry - it was just that Hunk had his nose in a book.

It took a few moments to respond, and then Hunk blinked and looked up.  "Huh?  Oh, Shiro.  Hello.”  Another second passed, and what happened seemed to register.  "Oh!  Did I nearly walk into you?  I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to.  I was just distracted.“

"I can see that,” Shiro replied fondly.  "Good book?“

Scorbus Coming Out rec list

So last Tuesday was National Coming Out Day and I didn’t really do anything to mark the occasion. I came out to my friends and family when I was 13 and I’m about to turn 31. Being in a monogamous relationship with a man gives the illusion that I am heterosexual, but I was once very open about my bisexuality, I even founded our high school’s GSA. However this post isn’t about me, it’s to celebrate the wonderful Scorbus coming out stories that have come out post Cursed Child.

Most of these are one shots but there are a few chaptered stories at the bottom. If you know of any other Scorbus fics that feature coming out as an important part of the plot please reblog to add on to this list. While I personally see Albus and Scorpius’ coming out to their families as a pretty easy process (I assume the parents figured it out before they did) I like that authors have explored different dynamics. I hope that anyone struggling with coming out themselves can take courage from these stories. I’m also always available to chat.

Albus Severus Potter/Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy

‘Albus’s embarrassment always seems to rub off on Scorpius.’

‘Harry discovered that Albus is gay when Ministry business led him to Hogwarts on what was coincidentally the school’s Pride Day’. Short, slightly crack-ish drabble.

*Firewhisky- amorae
‘Albus Severus Potter isn’t nearly as dense as his father, but if there were a competition for “The Densest Potter Boys Alive”, it would be a very, very close call.’ This quite long, but full of supportive characters and one very clueless Albus.

*When did that start?- smolbirbplant

‘Albus and Scorpius have been keeping their relationship a secret all year. As they get off the Hogwarts express Scorpius decides that he wants to share that secret with their families.’ 
Short, cute, easy. Supportive, yet teasing James.

‘Albus is fed up with his Dad’s attempt at setting him up and comes to a realisation.’ Featuring Fantastic and fierce Ginny.

*The Unfortunate Consequences of Talking to Oneself in the Mirror- TheRogueHuntress

*One Beat- threebroomstickz
'Scorpius released a long, defeated sigh. It was true, he had insisted that they keep their relationship secret. For the sake of their families. The media would have a ball when they find out about the gay sons of the savior of the wizarding world, and ex-death eater.’

*Together- KillianJones32
Well, preparing to come out anyway

*talk to me for hours-clohvers
Perhaps more of a confessional than a coming out, but it has a similar nervous energy.

*Albus Potter and the Crush on His Best Friend- ablondeweasley
‘Harry’s battles, in the original seven books, were always simple, and with two outcomes: beat Voldemort or die. Albus struggles with something much more complicated…’ Veritaserum, confessions, rainbow cupcakes and Poppy Pomfrey, oh my!

*One Step at a Time- teenagewasteland
Pure Scorbus fluff because we can never have too much of that
Part one is getting together, part two is coming out

*In Which Scorpius Malfoy and Albus Potter Come Out- Ravenclaw Scientist
Part 1 of ‘In which… Scorbus is cannon’ series (Teen and Up)
This is a bit all over the place, but as the title suggests… Scorpius comes out to Albus is chapter one, Scorpius comes out to his dad in chapter 3 and Albus comes out to his parents in chapter 6. In between there are drunken house parties and weirdness.

*A very important conversation- Ravenclaw Scientist
Part 4 of 'In which… Scorbus is cannon’ series (rated Mature)
Harry and Draco sit Albus and Scorpius down for “the talk” *together*. Much awkwardness ensues. Scorpius is adorable. Warning for well you know, wizard sex education. Works as a stand alone.

*Love Dorks- pommedeplume
Part 4 of the Albus and Scorpius Series
Albus Potter discusses his gender with his boyfriend. Kissing and dorkiness ensues.

*Someone My Mother Would Be Proud Of- ScorbusDeservesBetter 
Note that I have only read the first three chapters (Scorpius comes out to his dad in the third) but it is a complete story.

*A Knack for Trouble- CoronaAustralis
This is a WIP and promises to have a rather complex and intriguing plot. The boys come out in chapter 2 or rather Scorpius comes out and Albus makes a muddle of it.

*Adventures of a Transgendered Wizard
Note that this is a WIP. It’s written in first person, and while it is not really my thing, I thought it should be included here.

anchestor  asked:

You wouldn't happen to have any fic recommendations lying around, would you? (Bonus points if Gaster and/or Grillby is involved, but anything Undertale related would be much appreciated ^^)

Woooo you’re gonna make me do some real searching around aincha? Ahaha that’s mostly my fault. I always binge read without abandon and then have to go back and find things again later. But here we go!

AO3 Fic Recs:

First Impressions by WatteauYouDoing
This one I originally found because I was looking for Grillster comics and they illustrated what later became one of my favorite parts. It’s an AU where monsters were never trapped underground and the war between humans and monsters is more like a future-past-tech civil rebellion than an actual war between races. Swaps between Grillby, Gaster and a nondescript monster reader with them all eventually becoming a sort of poly relationship (though it’s only briefly touched on near the end of the story that I remember). 

It’s Not Too Late by The Ninja Mouse ( @theninjawrites​ on tumblr)
You’ve heard me rant about this one before. I’ve made fanart for it. It’s beautiful. One of those rare romance fics that I’ve actually managed to fall in love with (so!! cute!!). Don’t dismiss it just because it’s Sans x Reader. Even if romance isn’t your thing, the characterization and personalities and just… I like everything about this one. You should’ve seen me when I read it for the first time, desperately clinging to a treadmill because I refused to put it down for even a second, screaming whenever something shocking happened and trying to hide from the stares of the strangers around me minding their own business. Oh yeah, and there’s like 2 seconds of Gaster / Grillby interaction that literally had me in tears because I just want everyone to be happy goddamnit.

“Acting” by fireweed15
Short and sweet, maybe 3 paragraph flash fiction about an AU where Grillby and Gaster are spies under deep cover as a couple and this is the exact moment they realize they actually have feels for each other. It’s just cute.

Hellfire by renwhit
The first fanfic I ever read that involved Grillby being summoned for the war. I read it after I’d already started Casting Rain, when I realized I had no idea what I was doing. This is the fic that made me also realize I shouldn’t read other wartime fics because they’re Too Good ™ and I’ll inevitably give up on mine because – yeah. Anyway! It’s a good one. Gave me a lot of feels. I did not cry. But I came really fucking close.

What are Friends For by ichikoWindGryphon ( @ichiwashername-o on tumblr)
Also read during my “I have no idea what I’m doing with this fic so I’m reading other peoples’ so I can have some perspective” phase and stopped because I didn’t want to accidentally appropriate anything (though you’ll probably remember I directly referenced it in CR once). Haven’t finished it yet but I really liked what I read so far of it. Papyrus is so well written!! And Gaster has good motivation (cool motive, still murder). 

The Pools at the Cliffs by Starfog
One of the most unique concepts I’ve seen come out of this fandom. It’s a cute Alphyne AU where Alphys is an intern ichthyologist and Undyne is a frickin’ hellfire mermaid. I fell out of reading it because of how long the chapters took to update, and I’m actually not sure if the story was ever finished. But if you want a unique concept then have at thee!

Never a Lovely So Real by Kaesa ( @kaesaaurelia on tumblr)
The best frickin mob/mafia AU story to ever grace the face of the planet I am so so serious. Honestly even if the story wasn’t as good as it is (which it is in fact extremely good) it would be worth reading because of the inner monologue of the main character. And wouldn’t you know it, the MC is Sans. And lemme tell ya, the way Kaesa writes Sans’ inner thoughts is amazing. It sounds real. Like an actor walked off the screen and narrated the story for me. Phenominal. Not finished yet I don’t think, and it hasn’t updated in a hot minute, but totally worth the binge read regardless.

Sticks & Stones by OneType
This one is NSFW, big warning for that now.
The only reason I even recommend this one is because I fell in love with it before the NSFW elements came into the story and the concept is still amazing regardless of their implementation. Underswap Papyrus thinks he gets his time machine working and in a hilarious twist of fate, accidentally get’s stuck in his Fell counterpart’s body instead. After which ensues a conglomeration of embarrassing moments where Stretch has to try and get used to a pointy body and an even pointier reputation, try not to be too over conspicuous with how out of place his moral compass is in Underfell and - you guessed it - try not to get caught doing it. I love it to bits, but unfortunately the NSFW elements are actually fairly important to how the plot progresses, so if you are underage, you shouldn’t read this one, as you probably can’t skip the naughty bits without being confused. This is another one of those fics as well that’s slow to update and - arguably - will not be finished, so take that with a grain of salt.

Trust by Keetaspacecat ( @spacegate on Tumblr)
This one is for the GasterBlaster!AU, and while I’m sure everyone is familiar with that by now I’ll explain anyway: Imagine bone werewolves. Except they’re bone dragons really. And also the skelebros. It’s a fucking cool concept.
This one is about a very confused Grillby who stumbles on the poor baby skelebros as they are rifling through his trash, and does his best to help them out. The rest is a montage of Dad!Grillby moments where he does his best to take care of a pair of skeleton shapeshifters while slowly unraveling why they’re even a thing in the first place and being horrified with the answers he’s getting. This one is also a slow to update, and comes attached with some pretty heavy trigger warnings for child abuse topics, so be prepared.

Souls Entwined by Thrones_of_War
This one holds a special place in my heart because I haven’t technically read it. It’s been read to me over Skype by the author and their friend. It has found new life in my soul because of how outstanding their character voices are. Holy shit.
Anyway! Technically a ‘book one’ in a pretty expansive series, it follows Frisk (and the disembodied Chara) as the two try to live normal lives and - oh wait, who the fuck is that godthing trying to kill everyone?? Aaaaaa???
The main antag is a pretty overpowered OC, which I know can grate on peoples’ nerves sometimes. But the characterization is fantastic, and the inner banter between Chara and Frisk is pretty priceless.

The Scientist by talkingsoup
A pretty kickass story about Gaster and how he fell from grace - and into the core. Has a pretty believable fall-into-insanity arc and a really epic final fight scene on a catwalk above the melting core. I found this one originally because of a comic and am beyond glad I took the time to check out the fic itself! It’s basically my headcanon for any evil!Gaster you can think of. I can’t remember too much from it now because it’s been a little over a year now since I read it, but I fondly hold it as one of the first and best short fics I’ve read in this fandom.

Strike a Chord by LilyHellsing (they also have a tumblr but I can’t remember what it is, sorry!)
The first long Grillby-centric fic I ever read. I actually can’t remember why I started reading it. I think I kind of just stumbled into it while I was enamored with Grillby and was following literally every Grillby blog I could find. Anyway. It’s a Reader x Grillby fic so smothered in fluff and cuteness that I could suffocate and die happy in it’s cocoon of warmth. I can’t remember a lot of the plot now (it’s been a hot minute since I read it) other than several of the most adorable dancing scenes I’ve ever read on paper. And also an ending so satisfying I actually sighed and laughed with relief when I read it.

A Promise for a Lifetime by Anchestor ( @anchestor on tumblr). 
Yes I know it’s you. Yes I’m recommending yourself to yourself. Fight me!!(Actually I just realize you’re not the only person who’s gonna read this ahaha, so for anyone else who wants to see my fic recs, here you be!). Fucking adorable and bittersweet and hurts my heart you monster. Gaster and Grillby get married and they stay married and happy forever you cannot tell me otherwise. //is still grossly sobbing//

Literally anything written by @procrastinatingbookworm you want your goddamn Grillster feels punched in the teeth you read their stuff and it’s well written so you better go read it I swear to god.

Flowerfell is a good one that most people have read that doesn’t exist anymore except as a dramatic read on Youtube I think. I know I had more Underfell AU ones that I liked during my Underfell phase last year but like… that was before I had an AO3 account so I didn’t bookmark anything god help me.

Another one I desperately want to read is “A Flame in the Dead of Night” by Sliver_setting_sun. It’s a Grillster wartime AU fic! But I don’t wanna read it until Casting Rain is done so…… uh……. if you have read or do read that one, like, tell me if it’s good? But no spoilers please!

Tumblr fic recs:

A Year Every Minute by @askull4everyoccasion
It’s been awhile since I read this one but it will forever stand out to me as the reason I started reading fanfiction in general, my favorite characterization of Gaster, and my headcanon for a lot of things to do with Undertale behind-the-scenes shenanigans. Follows Dr. Gaster and all his mishaps while raising the skelebros, and beyond. Their writing is fantastic, especially given how they literally uploaded a new chapter every fucking day while it was being written. I am still disappointed in myself for not drawing fanart for it, but now I feel awkward because it’s been out forever and I like… feel as though I’ve missed my chance. Anyway. If you read it and can’t get enough of the universe like I couldn’t then good news! They have / had a running RP with AU versions of their Gaster as well as 1000 shorts to do with the AYEM universe, and a sequel/prequel in the works currently. It’s fucking insane they should be a professional author I swear J K Rowling couldn’t expand on her universe the way this goober has.

I only read AYEM and the related extras, but I have only heard good things about the rest of the fandom this amazing author has created for themselves so like… go for it. Read it all.

BOTWOT and SOS by @abadtime

Another of the very first fics I ever read for this fandom and also forever one of my favorites. This one is an Evil!Gaster story. Tons of mystery especially at the beginning of BOTWOT. SOS is the sequel and is still in the works as far as I know. I’m not caught up on the SOS chapters, but BOTWOT was my lifeblood for awhile there. I used to crouch by the computer clamoring for an update. Another one as well that I wished I’d drawn fanart for, but now feel as though I missed my chance. Plus like… giant bone dragons are really frickin’ hard to draw.

Pressure by @themanicmagician
Ah yes, I did remember one Underfell story that I enjoyed. I can’t remember much from this one now since I read it so long ago, just that I adored it at the time. Lots of Sans / Papyrus angst. I know someone is currently making a comic of the whole thing which is frickin’ fantastic and the writer really deserves it! It’s good. And a cool Underfell Sans / Flowey dynamic is involved in this one as well, which was cool to see. I’ve also been curious about “You’re Gonna Have a Sad Time” by this author because it involves the Empress Undyne Nuetral Ending in the game, but I haven’t taken the time to read it yet. If you read that one you should let me know how it is!
Fair warning that some of this author’s other content is NSFW, so please take care of your likes/dislikes/triggers/age/etc while going through their other stuff.

Spectrum by @that1nkyone
Another one I should draw fanart for at some point :’D
This is another in the GB!AU, is currently ongoing and is frickin’ fantastic. I can’t wait to see how all the ties come together - and I even more want to know what the holy heckaroo happened to Gaster to make him the way he is. A lot has been implied but nothing specifically said. Anyway! This fic is a goddamn labor of love, including an entire chapter in comic form - and lemme tell ya, if you think they’re a good author you ain’t seen anything until you’ve seen their artwork! Anyway, Undyne. So many people forget how epic Undyne is. 1nky does not. I frickin’ love their depiction of Undyne. i would read this story for Undyne even if the rest of it was terrible. As it turns out, the rest of it is far from terrible. In fact, it is all very much on par with how epic their Undyne is, which is pretty damn epic. This fic has made me so emotional. I have literally cheered out loud while reading some parts of this.

Flowey Is Not A Good Life Coach by @unrestedjade
I know everyone and their mother has recommended this one at some point, and I’m going to politely recommend it as well. I could say a lot about this, but all I’m actually gonna say is I probably shouldn’t have been reading it while my anxiety was at one of it’s peaks. It was good. Too good. 

A pretty cool unnamed Grillby shortfic by @saucissans
I link this one because I have no idea if this person writes more fanfics or if this was just a one-time thing. Anyway!
It’s basically a kind of flash-fiction-esque ficlet about Grillby stopping a forest fire on the surface, expanding on a headcannon by sushinfood. It is probably one of the first Grillby-centric things I’ve ever read and marks the beginning of my slow descent into obsession with the fire man. Give it a like and a reblog! It’s adorable!

Fanfiction.net Fic Recommendations

……. none. Zero. Zilch.
Though to be fair I haven’t looked very much. Their tagging system over there sucks though? The only Undertale fic I remember reading on that site was definitely not something I wanted to read, but I was so confused by the writing style that it didn’t dawn on me what I was reading until it was already too late. It’s about like eating one of those bamboozled jelly beans? I didn’t realize until after it was already in my mouth just how bad it tasted, so to speak.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand I’ve been too busy (and scared) to search through there ever since!

That does it for my fic recs I think. That’s everything I can find/remember anyway. Have fun!

anonymous asked:

who are your favourite authors for bts fics??

I have such a good many, this is going to be embarrassingly long oh my. Not in order or something, I’m just going through my fic recs and I’m naming authors I especially liked. 

Just a little PSA, a lot of these authors are TaeKook and YoonSeok faves, because those two ships are my mains.

If you’ve ever read any of her SugaKookies and i’ve read several, you’ll know what I mean.

JungHope is such an important ship and this author is so good at writing it. Probably invented JungHope, honestly.

I don’t think I have to tell anyone about resonae’s YoonJin fics. Really, I don’t have the words. Always a constant fave.

This author writes SugaMon that won’t leave you the same way you came. Occasionally writes seriously amazing TaeKook too, and really. Wow.

Writes a variety of ships, though I’ve only read her YoonSeoks, which I genuinely loved.

Literally, you will almost never find fics that short and that perfect, regardless of what pairing you slap onto the story. I certify it.

I haven’t read all her fics, but I’ve read the VHopes and some TaeKooks and they’re all great.

There’s so many fics this author has written, but the ones I have read yoonseoks hah are so well written.

Never ever get me started on this author. This person is my literal idol, I could cry rivers over this person, their writing changed my entire life, I wish I could personally award this person for saving me and destroying me all at once, I’m not even kidding. A year ago, I came across this author and I’m still not okay, will never be and that’s true power.

This author is basically the human definition of trigger warning, trigger warning, bullets to heart and more trigger warning.

Please never get me over this rollercoaster of fic writing that never stops hurting and making my heart bloom.

The person who wrote the book on how to nail every fic ever written so effortlessly, it’s embarrassing. 

If you guys haven’t read her fics, you like, need to.

Not that these authors don’t deserve wholly separate posts over their writing, which they totally do. If there was ever a Holy Trinity of TaeKook perfection, it’s right here. Probably invented TaeKook, other than Nini.

Only read a few fics, but it’s all A+, seriously.

I read an older TaeKook and was 10/10 sold, it was so good. And then I read all the other TaeKooks and just wow.

I read SMH a year ago, and it was my first TaeKook. Still my holy grail of TaeKook, and every fic after that I read from Nini. Like, TaeKook recs aren’t complete without this. 

There’s so many authors I like, but I wanted my favorites here who I’ve liked more than one powerful fic from so I tried to shorten it. Tried. I hope you read a lot of these authors’ fics, you’ll love them all.

Werewolf Wagon’s Top Ten Themed Fics is a monthly feature suggested by the lovely Juliana, where a list is made of the Top Ten Fics based on an specific theme previously chosen by us or suggested by a follower.

It probably goes without saying, but blanket warning: potential dub-con.

Don’t Look At Me (I’m Indiscreet) by triedunture (1,745 - T)

The pack asks Stiles to find a way to get Derek to chill out. This is the best he can come up with.

I’m breathing in the chemicals by laminy (4,067 - E)

Stiles needs a smoke. He ends up at Derek’s with the promise of one. When Stiles finds Derek’s particular mix a little too strong, Derek tries shotgunning to make it less intense. It doesn’t quite work.

light me up before i go by orphan_account (5,582 - Not Rated)

Come late April, the sun will grow warm while the air is still cool, and there will be just enough greenery for Stiles to hide the Jeep somewhere off the beaten path in the Beacon Hills Preserve, tucked away from the world in a safe little space where he and Derek can get high.

Need for Weed by alisvolatpropiis (2,407 - Not Rated)

Derek was nervous enough about this, aside from his hang-ups about rule breaking. He has no idea what he’s doing, and he’s already accepted the fact that he’s going to look like an idiot to whomever he buys from. He hadn’t counted on the dispensary’s delivery guy being utterly fucking gorgeous, and the type to brazenly (and unprofessionally) check Derek out as well, biting his plump, pink bottom lip.

No Homo by RemainNameless (84,064 - E)

Stiles’ sophomore year starts something like this:
3 FourLokos
+ 1 peer-pressuring cat
- 1 best bro to end all best bros
= 1 Craigslist ad headline that reads “str8 dude - m4m - strictly platonic”.
Derek is the fool who replies.

This Love Like a Hole (Swallows Me Whole) by alisvolatpropiis (6,070 - E)

He thinks he sees something like a smile flash across Derek’s face, so he leans closer, heart racing even faster. His crossed arms brush against the soft leather of Derek’s jacket and he clenches his fists tighter, itching to grab at it and pull him in. “Did you want something,” he asks, voice whiskey-dark, watching how Derek’s eyes fall to his mouth as he speaks.

“Yeah,” Derek whispers throatily, barely loud enough for him to hear. “Yeah, Stiles, I want something.”

We’re Burning One Hell of a Something by calrissian18 (6,031 - M)

Derek’s roommate has already moved in by the time he shows up. And he’s taken up both sides of the room.

there’s a fire going out by wolfiery (7,776 - M)

“Whoa, are you trying to kill me?! Is this payback for that time I switched the bindings in your Physics book to your History book? Because that was just a friendly form of entertainment,” He clutches the armrest with a death grip and his body jerks forward when Derek makes an abrupt stop at the streetlight and Stiles will deny that he lets out a girlish squawk.

“That was you?”

breathe you in by forpony (4,4694 - E)

How Stiles and Derek become weed buddies

Respiration and Inspiration by MajorAccent (31,437 - E)

“Your dad’s the fucking sheriff of my hometown,” Derek hisses when Stiles is pretending to search through the expiration dates on the cartons of 1%. “When were you going to tell me that?”

do you have any drarry recs?

thank you for this ask!!!! as it so happens, yes, i do. i’m a bit frustrated, because i feel like a lot of my favorites aren’t here, but i guess i can work more on this list later. i hope you enjoy them as much as me.

bolded with an asterisk are my favorites. super favorites are bolded with an asterisk and capslocked. not all of them have warnings, only some. i spared you guys the darkest, most fucked up ones, since i know they’re not for everyone. also: the majority of these would probably be rated R/NC-17. total of recs: 79.

anonymous asked:

what are ur fave Harry Potter fics?

This is going to be so long! I’m limiting it just to Drarry, but I do read and love other pairings as well

All Time Favorites That Speak to my Very Soul

Unhook the Stars (jad, 72k): Draco’s a professional Dom, and Harry hires him. Draco is perfect here: arrogant, smug, snarky, and sexy, and with a hidden well of insecurities that he hides from the world. Their sex is electric, and they help push each other’s limits and heal each other.

Secrets (Vorabiza, 395k): Draco shows up at Privet Drive with his daughter and begs Harry to take her in. They end up teaming up to take down Voldemort, along with help from a lot of snarky Slytherins and Harry’s friends. 

I Bet That You Look Good on the Dancefloor (birdsofshore, 28k): Harry finds himself in a Muggle gay bar, confused and curious and wanting, when he runs into Draco, who’s wild and free in a way that calls to something deep in Harry.

REVOLVEVLOVER (firethesound & zeitgeistic, 46k): Harry’s a professional Hit Wizard, and has developed a cold, mechanical resolve that helps him distance himself from the reality of his work. Draco’s an Auror who knows too much and, accordingly, is Harry’s next assignment.

Temptation on the Warfront (alizarincrims0n, 180k): At the start of their Horcrux hunt, Remus deposits Draco on the step of Grimmauld Place, stating that Draco has defected. Although the trio is naturally suspicious of him at first, Draco ends up joining them on their quest.

Let Me See You Stripped (Down to the Bone) (traintracks, 24k): Harry and Draco are strippers who are paired up to dance together. Their strip club has a no fraternization policy, but they’re quite creative, so they make it work.

The Boy Who Only Lived Twice (lettered, 54k): Harry’s an Unspeakable and has fallen in love with his partner, despite not knowing his true identity. Draco is in love with Harry and is pursuing him hard.

Life Is a Twice Written Scroll (lauren3210, 23k): Their eighth year at Hogwarts, Draco is discouraged with the state of his life and imagines what would have happened if he had done one thing differently; he’s shocked to wake up the next day and find himself living in a world where he had made that particular choice. He explores different realities that hinge on a single choice, and finds himself drawn to Harry time and time again. It has a sequel, of sorts, which is also incredibly beautiful.

Another Mask Behind You (lettered, 116k):  Draco’s a prostitute and has invented a potion that blurs his features just enough to mask his identity, and Harry unwittingly hires him.

Other Favorites That I Would be Remiss Not to Mention

All Our Secrets Laid Bare (firethesound, 149k): After Draco’s Auror partners keep disappearing, Harry is forced to work with him. Harry tries to investigate him without getting distracted by his epic adorableness, but alas, his impulse control is as poor as ever.

At Your Service (Faith Wood, 96k):  It’s their eighth year at Hogwarts, and a series of suspicious events makes Harry suspect that Draco is up to something.

How to Handle an Enemy & Turnabout is Fair Play (who_la_hoop, 18k together): The Slytherins play truth or dare, and Draco ends up in over his head.

IDK My BFF Hermione? (lettered, 19k): Draco is going wild- he’s wearing eyeliner, leather, and silver jewelry, he’s dancing on tables, he’s fucking in public, and worst of all, he just won’t get out of Harry’s head.

In Death’s Dream Kingdom (Kedavranox, 7.5k): Although this fic destroyed me, it’s so gorgeous that it’s still a favorite. It’s nonlinear, so scenes of Draco and Harry’s loving domesticity are interspersed with their current anguish.

In the Company of a Rubber Duck (bidsofshore, 35k): Part of Draco’s community service requires him to spend an hour a day as a random item in someone’s house. He ends up as a rubber duck in Harry’s bath, to both of their chagrin. 

Kiss a Boy in London Town (and Other Intimate Misadventures of a Society Whore) (Femme, 36k): Draco’s a successful prostitute, which allows his family to remain financially comfortable. Things only become messy when Harry hires Draco without knowing his true identity. 

Kiss Me (Under the Light of a Thousand Stars) (@sophiefrench77, 115k): Draco was sent to Azkaban after the war. After Harry finds out that Draco has yet to be released, he frees him and brings Draco to come live with him while he recovers.

Leo Inter Serpentes (Aeternum, 528k so far): It’s a brilliant retelling of all the books with a Slytherin!Harry.

Make Me a Headline (I Want to be That Bold) (@dictacontrion, 31k): Draco’s editor in chief of the Daily Prophet, and comes across a picture of Harry blowing someone else. He decides to extort him for a date, as one does.

Mental (Sara Holmes, 196k): An eighth year fic in which Harry and Draco are accidentally linked by a Legilimency bond and can hear each other’s thoughts. Although they initially resist it, they soon find themselves closer than they ever expected.

Nobody’s Ever Died of a Broken Heart (Frayach, 10k): Harry’s trying to figure out how to move on with his life after suffering an agonizing loss. 

On the Couch (Frayach, 26k): This is told from the perspective of Draco’s therapist. Draco’s wife urged him to attend therapy for their intimacy issues, although Draco is extremely resistant to treatment. Seeing Draco and his relationship with Harry through an outside observer’s eyes is fascinating! 

Plums (Frayach, 7k): Despite both being married and living almost completely separate lives, Harry and Draco have been in a Master/slave relationship for years. In this one realm, their relationship is exquisitely intimate; however, they barely acknowledge each other outside of this, and don’t even know if they can, as they are both so embedded in their roles. It’s probably the most thought-provoking fic I’ve ever read, and has stimulated hours of debate. However, I urge you to please read the warnings beforehand, because it is extremely graphic and intense, and will likely be too much for many people to read. 

Potential Gravity (zeitgeistic, 32k): Draco and Harry are Auror partners and best friends. When Draco informs Harry that he’s transferring to Lebanon, Harry panics and is forced to confront the feelings he’s always tried to keep hidden.

Rather Than Love (birdsofshore, 7k): Harry agrees to take Veritaserum before he and Draco go out to a Muggle club. While surrounded by admirers, Draco asks Harry questions about their love life, making him admit how much he loves when Draco assumes control over him.

Right Hand Red (lumosed_quill, 73k): Their eighth year at Hogwarts, Harry and Draco find themselves drawn to each other like a moth to a flame. Their attraction is exacerbated by the many party games the eighth years keep throwing, which force them into close contact with each other again and again.

Sex, Lies, and Veritaserum (lettered, 18k): Draco and Harry are married, and Draco spikes their wine with Veritaserum so they have to speak openly about their deepest, most intimate fantasies.

Stop All the Clocks (This is the Last Time I’m Leaving Without You) (firethesound, 45k): You watch as they start off hate shagging, each unwilling to admit they want more. You watch them become Auror partners and fall in love and start a life together, and then you watch Harry struggle to pick up the pieces when their happiness suddenly shatters.

Tea and No Sympathy (who_la_hoop, 70k): Draco is stuck in a time loop that forces him to live through the same scenario every day. He goes from panicked to “Ha, I can do whatever the fuck I want!” to desperate, and he keeps falling more in love with Harry.

The Fall of the Veils (lettered, 61k): The veils between the magical and Muggle worlds collapse, causing Muggles to learn about the existence of Wizards. After a long period of war, they’ve reached a tentative era of peace, one that Harry’s determined to upkeep.

The Light More Beautiful (firethesound, 81k): Things go a little differently during their sixth year, and after a heated hook up in the Potions classroom, Harry helps Draco escape from the Death Eaters. Draco returns to London years later and is both thrilled and infuriated when he’s immediately thrown back into Harry’s life.

To Be Where I’m Going (In the Sunshine of Your Love) (@theboywholivcd, 19k):  After attending rival high schools, Harry and Draco end up on the same college swim team. They slowly become close, and as their friendship deepens, Harry finds himself falling in love with Draco. After graduation, they go on a road trip across the country, and Harry can’t help hoping for more.

Touch Me Fall (lumosed_quill, 23k): Draco’s working as a prostitute, and Harry hires him to try to get him out of his system. It works about as well as you’d expect.

‘Twas Brillig (Queenie_Mab, 74k): In this fic, we watch as Harry comes out, gets an amicable divorce from Ginny, and finds himself irrevocably drawn to a sexy, confident Draco. Harry also helps Al (Alice here) with her own journey as they read Alice in Wonderland together and Harry comes to accept that Alice is trans.

Twist of Fate (OakStone730, 302k): Harry and Draco get together fourth year but want to keep their relationship private, so they stage public fights (which are the ones you see in the books). Their journey will break your heart but then piece it back together again.

Worlds Apart (QueenyMidas, 31k): A nonmagical AU in which Harry and Draco’s characters in World of Warcraft meet, and their initial animosity soon gives way to flirting and sexting. They’re both unaware that the boy on the other side of the screen is their high school rival.

Yours is the Earth (Hold On, Hold On) (chickenlivesinpumpkin, 127k): Draco is taken over by a creature, and he has to watch it use his body to commit atrocities without being able to stop it. But when it threatens Harry’s life, Draco begins to fight back.

Gelphie Fic Rec List

So this was requested by @alwaysholdingout a while ago and this is just me getting round to it, sorry. I’m going to put them into categories, completed, in progress and one-shots. P.S those in bold are my personal favourites.

anonymous asked:

do u have any fic recs? im like... dying for some good check please fic

okay listen there is SO much good fic in this fandom but personally i’m a total hoe for long, like super long fics, so i’m gonna set you up with my three favorites. (yes, i know three isn’t many, but these are LONG, like entire novels, and they’re GREAT.)

and i’m gonna preface that the easiest way to find these will be to go to ao3, choose check please as your fandom, and set the search filters to “by word count” and “completed.”

1. maybe i’m waking up! probably my favorite fic, it’s currently the longest completed fic there is in this fandom (~150k words, which is roughly the length of the first 2 harry potter books put together, if i remember correctly). it follows jack during his start in the nhl, but following an au of “what if the graduation kiss didn’t happen?” the getting-together angst is DELICIOUS (but relatively short, thankfully–well, relative still being several thousands of words, given that this is a damn novel). i also like the format of this one–while most of this is set up traditionally, there’s also parts that are like excerpts from gossip boards talking about jack and stuff, and it feels really realistic. i have a 7 hour road trip tomorrow, and i’m probably going to reread this for the FOURTH time. it’s that fucking good.

2. the mechanics of poetry. (i know the author is on tumblr, but i can’t remember who it is. if you see this, please tell me!) it’s nurseydex, and i love this so much. for me, it’s right up there with maybe i’m waking up, though it’s shorter (still really effing long, though, maybe 60k? can’t remember). it honestly develops dex’s and nursey’s relationship so well, and we really get some insight as to dex’s home life. it’s slow burn to the point that you’ll want to scream, but the payoff is SO worth it. it deals pretty heavily with homophobia from certain family members, so be warned. still, it ends happily and very domestically, and i love love love this one.

3. i can’t remember the fcukening name of this one, but if you have your ao3 filters set like i said, it should be right up near the top. i’m pretty sure marswithghosts wrote this one. it’s an au where bitty is a children’s librarian who meets jack after jack publishes a kids’ book teaching children about anxiety. it’s super cute and feels so damn honest. the OCs are also my favorite in this one, you have some wonderful side characters with some wonderful kids, and you fall in love with them all. edit: this one is called a little bit closer. thanks to @princesstonybear

these are my favorite fics. i hope you like them!

and if you want some shorter fics, there’s plenty of shorter fic authors right here on tumblr (including myself, though i know it’s unsightly to promo myself on my own asks). personally, i’d check out @marswithghosts, @annundriel, @foxtrot-thelaxbro, and @iboatedhere to start, though that’s just off the top of my head, because there are so many GREAT authors in this fandom. i hope this helps!

Aya's Hank McCoy/Alex Summers Fic Rec Starter Kit

The pairing is Alex Summers/ Hank McCoy (also known as Havok and Beast, respectively) from the movie X-Men First Class. This was written because I am in love with this pairing. Like literally, Cherik is good and all that but Hank/Alex? Stole my heart. I had to do a fic rec kit for them. All of the fics listed here are just so, so good and fully complete and just brilliant really. This kit is also a companion fic rec starter kit to my 00QJohnlock, MerthurJercy, Percico+Jaisco, SpiderflashSpirk, FrostIron, Larry Stylinson and Gallavich ones. All fics are below the cut and I hope you guys enjoy it. Happy reading guys!

anonymous asked:

tbh I'm not a fan of the RR writing style either? ^^" Anyways, since you seem to have been on this subject for awhile, subject change -> do you have any oc-insert stories that you do like? other than ones that you've previously linked!


Of The River And The Sea

Opening chapters can feel a little too edgy and impenetrable at first, but the writer eventually becomes more deft at writing dark and emotionally raw content, and is a HUGE inspiration to me. Also, politics, economy, and worldbuilding porn. If you like A Drop Of Poison (one of the best Naruto fics ever, forever), you’ll probably enjoy the middle ‘filler’ chapters of this fic, and it’s worth reading. Warning: goes SOOOOOOOOOOO SLOOOOOOOOOW. If you aren’t hooked by the time Ryuishi leaves Kiri, drop it, it’s going to be hitting those same notes at that same speed. It’s a billion years long for a reason. But seriously the scene where Ryuishi leaves Kiri is amazing. Has a very 80s-90s Alan Moore sort of tone to it. But with more feelings.

Dreaming Of Sunshine

You’ve read this already. You’ve read it. At least 1 chapter. Don’t you lie to me. For those who have been burned by OC fic and inexplicably haven’t touched it yet, it’s an incredibly sturdy, deliberate, and evenly-paced story that never breaks stride despite its immense length. It is ALWAYS going at the same speed, and that speed is “steady trot”, through a MASSIVE amount of character development and a truly staggering level of worldbuilding and political intrigue. Probably my biggest inspiration ever? Also the Gelel arc and the Grass Chuunin Exam are the two best arcs I’ve ever seen in fic ever. Covers all the filler, including the OVAs, but does it assuming you’ve never seen any of it, so you barely even mind.

I’ve rec’d these 2 like 30 times but like…I love em

Luke Imagine

Prompt: Is that a drawing of me?

Request: No, But they are open :)

Warning: none :)

Boy: Luke

Words: 667



I was sat on my bed with my sketchbook sitting on my lap and my laptop in front of me. Luke was out for the day and I haven’t drawn in ages so I though now might be a good a time as any. At first I was struggling with what to draw, but then I thought I could try and draw Luke. So that’s what im doing, making sure that his lip ring is in the drawing because it’s the only thing that makes him punk rock. A few hours pass and I’ve finally completed the drawing, and if I do say so myself it looks amazing. I looked through my sketch book as I had forgotten what was in it since I haven’t opened it in a couple of months. To my surprise there are multiple drawings of Luke, all of them slightly more detailed than the one before. I decided that it was probably best for Luke not to see this, I don’t want him thinking im creepy or something.

I put it away in the table next to my bed, it was only a small book so it fit perfectly. I heard my phone ding on my bed to tell me that I had just got a text, it was from Luke telling me that he was on his way home. I quickly sent him a reply and went down stairs to make some tea. Soon enough the sound of a key in the door echoed throughout the flat and then a loud;

“Hey Babe, im back.”

Luke came into the living room and sat down next to me, taking hold of my tea and drinking some.

“Hey, make your own.” I wined grabbing the drink back. “Im sure the kettle is still hot.” I finished by smirking at him, causing a smile to appear on his face too.

“Nice to see you too, y/n.” he laughed as he walked into the kitchen to make himself a drink, I giggled and continued to watch my TV show. Fully immersed in all the drama that was going down.

“Hey, is there a pen in there?” I heard being called form the kitchen.

“No, but there’s one in the bedroom.” I quickly retorted. Hearing him run up the stairs. I was too busy watching my show to hear Luke come back in to the living room and see what he was holding.

“Is that a drawing of me?” he asked holding up the drawing that I had finished not too long ago. I stared blankly at him and snatched the book back and held it behind my back.

“Pft, no.” I said avoiding his eyes, and holding the book tightly in my hands.

“Y/n, there is no point in trying to hide it now. It’s too late, I’ve already seen it.” He said rolling his eyes and reaching for the book again, my grip tightened again.

“Y/n.” he said looking at me in the eyes and giving me a warm smile. “Please let me look.”

“They aren’t even very good.” I whispered loosening my grip on the book slightly.

“I bet they aren’t.” he said finally grabbing the book and opening it to the first page. We sat in silence for a while as Luke flipped through the book, until he finally got to the most recent one. He looked up at me and tilted my chin up so that I was looking at him as well.

“I told you they would be amazing.” He said leaning in and pecking me on the lips and smirking at me causing me to giggle.

“One question though,” he started “Why did you draw me?”

“Well, I guess you just have a nice face to draw.” I giggled pressing my nose against his

“That is by far the strangest and nicest complement I’ve ever gotten.” He laughed pressing his lips against mine once again. Cupping my jaw in his large hands as my arms wrapped around his neck.

anonymous asked:

Hi capitu! Can you rec me some really funny Drarry fics? Thank you! I love your blog! xxx

Dear Anon friend, thank you so much! <333 

And oh my god, longest list ever! I’m sorry! So many fics, and on top of that I tent to ramble about each fic! (So sorry about that!!!!!) ^^ But I’m pretty sure these will have you laughing in no time.

Draco Malfoy: Toilet Supremo by who_la_hoop (PG-13, 26,1K)
Summary: It must be a vision brought on by eating cheese sarnies too close to bedtime, Harry thinks. There’s no way that Draco Malfoy can really be standing on his doorstep, calling himself a Toilet Supremo, and expecting Harry to buy not only this unlikeliest of scenarios, but also a new loo.
My notes: Draco is selling toilets. In fact, Draco is determined to sell Harry a toilet, and Harry is certain Draco’s been cursed into selling toilets. And he’s going to save him (while going along with the whole thing). It’s every bit as hilarious as it sounds.  

The Four Ds of Apparition (or: Destination, Determination, Deliberation, and Dicks) by @eidheann & @firethesound (NC-17, 36,6K)
Summary: After transferring to the Apparition Department, Harry’s life becomes one big dick joke. And all his friends are arseholes. So is Malfoy, but what else is new? AKA Harry Potter and the eighteen twenty dicks.
My notes: Oh my god, how one goes explaining this fic? There’s no—I’m going to try. Harry was transferred to the Apparition department and then there are dicks, dicks everywhere. :D Harry’s being harassed by all of them. And then there’s Draco who has to analyse all these dicks for Harry. I know, it sounds crazy but it’s because it is!!! :D

Aural Gratification by birdsofshore (NC-17, 10K)
Summary: Harry’s not gay – he just likes listening to exciting stories about Aurors. It’s not his fault that the narrator’s voice is so smooth, so expressive… and really rather hot.
My notes: Birds has written some of my all-time fave stories, but this one just might be my favourite. Harry is super into audio books, and he’s bought an Aurors audio book, only then he realises it’s a dirty audio book, and the narrator’s voice only makes it worse, or better, depending. It’s perfect and funny and sexy. A lot of funny.

A Portrait of the Artist by @firethesound (PG-13, 5,3K)
Summary: When Harry Potter, reclusive artist, finally agrees to an interview, Draco can hardly believe that he’ll be the one to do it.
My notes:  That’s right! Harry is an artist, and for the first time he’s giving an interview, to Draco, and share his art. And oh god, nothing can prepare you or Draco for what Harry’s been creating. The hilarity of this fic should be warned. ^^

Potter’s Parselprostate (and the Chamber of Secrets) by @dictacontrion (NC-17, 17,4K)
Summary: Hogwarts’ future depends on Malfoy’s texts. Too bad the key is up Potter’s arse.
My notes: This is another fic that, how you explain it? :D It’s insane! And crazy good. OKAY. Harry is only able to speak in Parseltongue while is prostate is being stimulated. And Hogwarts needs to close the Chamber of Secrets and Draco found the texts that need to be translated, which means he needs Harry to translate them. You see where this is going, right? Yeah, it goes there. :D

Tooth Fairy Fights and Wisdom Teeth Wars: Draco and Harry’s Great Big Dental Adventure by ICMezzo (NC-17, 12,9K)
Summary: Harry never had a visit from the Tooth Fairy when he was a boy, but now that he’s had his wisdom teeth pulled, he’s tempted to try again. He knows it’s silly. Obviously it is. Ridiculous, really. But then, sometimes it feels nice to believe in a little magic.
My notes: Jesus, this fic. Draco is a Veela (with wings!) and he’s looking for a job. You know what job suits him perfectly? Being a Tooth Fairy. Are you laughing yet? It gets better, because Harry loses a tooth and decides he should do one of those things he never got the chance to do in his childhood. And the grumpiest Tooth Fairy shows up.

It Never Occurred to Me That I Would Fall in Love With a Frenchman by lamerezouille (PG-13, 6,5K)
Summary: Harry kisses Draco in a public place. All hell breaks loose.
My notes: Aw, this fic. It’s not only hilarious, it’s super sweet, too. Harry and Draco are together, they kiss but it just so happen the Dursleys see them, and then for reasons known only to Draco, he’s pretending to be a Frenchman through that meeting and later on when they have dinner together. It’s actually incredibly lovely, this fic. And funny.

“Merlin, FINE. You can be Harry Potter for Halloween.” by 606 (PG-16, 2,6K)
Summary: That one where Draco and Scorpius run into Harry Potter (rather literally) in a London convenience store and their Halloween takes an odd turn.
My notes: Short but hilarious. Scorpius wants to be Harry Potter for Halloween. And then Draco and him run into the Real Harry Potter. :)

A Series of Unfortunate Events by plotting_pen (NC-17, 25,3K)
Summary: Harry Potter has a tendency to show up whenever Draco’s in trouble. Draco’s not quite sure he hates it as much as he’d like.
My notes: ~Somehow~ Draco always ends up in the craziest and most dangerous situations, and Harry is always there to save him. Lots of smut, and lots of fun. Guarantee!

Angel Wing by almosttherenow (NC-17, 8K)
Summary: Draco really did pick the wrong time to enter the kitchen. It lost him seven precious months, his looks, and his mind. Still, it could’ve been worse - in the end, it probably saved both he and Harry’s lives.
My notes: This is a crazy story. Somehow (you’ll learn how!) Draco got turned himself into a goose. An ugly goose, and Narcissa calls for the life debt Harry owes him and demands he takes care of Harry while Draco is a goose. Truly fantastic.

How Harry Potter Became a Pervert by faithwood (NC-17, 10K)
Summary: Though others didn’t, Draco had believed the article.
My notes: The link will lead you to the series, just start at the bottom. And this fic starts when Draco goes looking for Harry to settle the pesky business of the life debt. Only, he does this after he read an article reporting just what a pervert Harry Potter is. Promising, yes? Awesome.

Ring of Fire by IvvyMoon (NC-17, 4,6K)
Summary: Draco gets a tattoo.
My notes: As the summary says, Draco gets a tattoo, only the tattoo is around his arsehole and it’s burning his sex-partners. The Healer who will help him is Harry Potter. I don’t think I need to say more. :D


One Night At The Club by faithwood (PG, but NSFW)
Summary: Well, it’s a club fic.
My notes: This is a bonus. It’s not a fic, it’s… ohmy GOD. It’s a ~fic~ told through emoticons and it’s the funniest thing you’ll ever see. I had to include it. 

Hey guys! I was recently asked to do a bellarke fic rec, and with Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day just around the corner (21st of August; go appreciate fanfic writers y’all!), I thought it was a good time to find my favourites. 

I’m posting under the cut, because it got a bit long and I didn’t want to make your dashes annoying. I’ve tagged the writers whose tumblrs I know, and used some people’s names like I know them even if I don’t – let me know if you want me to remove any of that (or add a tumblr I don’t know). I’m giving little review/summaries and mostly just being amazed at all the awesome fics we have in this fandom.

So, anyway – Happy Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day!! This is me letting you know I appreciate you all a lot. Read these fics!!!! They’re great, and I encourage everyone to send writers (all that you like, not just these ones) love and kudos and comments to let them know you like their stuff.
