The Final Goodbye

It’s finally finished! I originally wrote a short little blurb that was inspired by this post, but some of y’all wanted more pain and asked for a continuation, so here’s the full fic. Just a heads up, this is the first fic I’ve ever written so yeah. Enjoy *cue the evil laughter*

Thanks to @clockworkofbooks for beta reading and coming up with the title. 

     Aelin was surrounded by bodies.

     The battlefield was pure chaos. They’d been fighting since dawn, all the forces of Maeve, Erawan, and her finally clashing in what was the bloodiest battle she’d ever witnessed. Their lines had collapsed, and it was now a melee, every man or woman or witch for themselves. She was right in the middle of it, and everyone fought on around her, unaware that Adarlan’s assassin and the Queen of Terrasen was right in their midst.

     Rowan had been separated from her almost as soon as the battle had begun, and she’d caught glimpses of her Court throughout the day. Every time she did, some corner of her killing-numb brain had registered that they were still alive, and been grateful.

     The sun was shone high above them, beginning its descent as the day wore on. Her body was aching and she moved like someone possessed, brain on automatic. Every blow she landed was aimed to kill. She was a whirlwind of flames and death and destruction.

     Truly, the Valg prince that had chosen to go after her didn’t have a chance.

     She spotted him first, the ebony collar stark against the silver of his armor and his host’s pale, beautiful face.

     Blood sprayed as she dispatched her current opponent, but she paid it no heed. Hefting the dagger in her hand, she threw it right at him, the silver of the steel flashing. He caught it right before it hit him right between his eyes.

     The Valg’s slow grin at the sight of her was enough to send shivers down Aelin’s spine.

     “It’s the fire-breathing queen herself,” he hissed. “You die here and now.”

      Aelin smirked. “As if you’d be enough to kill me. I took on three of your brothers and burned them all to a crisp. You really think you’d fare better?”

     “I suppose we’ll find out!”

     Their clash sent shockwaves of flame and darkness throughout that battlefield. She thought she heard someone calling her name, but all she could think of was the battle before her. Her weapons were coated in her flames, and step by step she drove the Prince back.

      He swept his sword in a great arc, an attempt to disembowel her. The fool didn’t realize that he left himself open to her.

     She stepped into his guard, and with a dagger of pure flame beheaded him.

     His body stayed upright for a moment, then fell to the ground with a crash.

     She burned it to a crisp for good measure.

     Aelin’s breath was coming out in harsh pants. Black blood coated her, and despite her massive reserves her flames were running out. She allowed herself a moments reprieve to survey the battlefield. The screams of the dying and the clang of metal on metal and the roar of wyverns were deafening.

     She didn’t know how long they could last.

     Aelin looked around, searching for her next opponent to fight. And then she saw him.

     And her world began to crumble to ash around her.

     Across the field, he dispatched his opponents with the same cruel efficiency that she’d been taught. As he gutted a soldier wearing Terrasen’s colors -one of the Bane, some part of brain dimly recognized- he saw her, and turned to face her.

      The din of the battlefield faded to the background as a strange ringing took over her ears. Time slowed down.

      Sam Cortland was grinning at her, a black collar around his neck.

      “Hello, Celaena.”

      She could hear nothing but the pounding of her own heart. Images flashed through her mind. A dark, damp dungeon, a mutilated body, the smell of a rotting corpse.

     Athril’s ring pulsed on her finger.

     “Oh, wait,” Sam said, cocking his head to the side in a predatory way that was so decidedly not him. “You go by Aelin now. Who would have known that you were the lost princess of Terrasen. Then again, I suppose Arobynn did. That was why he favored you, wasn’t it?

     It couldn’t be him. She’d seen his body years ago, laid next to it, been to his grave. He couldn’t be here.

     She didn’t think she was breathing.

     A piercing shriek was heard above the noise of the battlefield. Their gazes snapped upwards, just in time to see a bird plummet down and shift in a brilliant flash of light in front of them.

     “Get away from her,” Rowan snarled, covered in crimson and brandishing a bloody sword. Somewhere along the way he’d lost his hatchet, and most of the sheaths on his weapons belt was empty.

      “If it isn’t the King of Terrasen,” Sam sneered. “Nice to see that you’ve moved on, Aelin. Was that all it took for you to forget me? Some Fae Prince making eyes at you?”

     His words hit her like a punch to the gut.


     This wasn’t Sam. Sam wouldn’t be saying these cruel things to her.

     The collar at his neck gleamed. Somehow the Valg inside of him had accessed his memories and he was using them to hurt her. It was just another one of Erawan’s tricks.

     She refused to be manipulated by him.

     “Is that the best you can do?” she smirked, forcing that easy arrogance back into her voice, the one that had been as easy as breathing. She took a step forward until she was standing right next to Rowan. Her mate’s warmth was a comfort. “Wearing the body of a dead lover that I’ve moved on about? Really, you and your master will have to try better.”

     Valg-Sam smirked. “How cold, Aelin. We thought for sure this would be enough to bring you to your knees. You’re even more heartless than we anticipated. Tell me, do your subjects know what kind of person you are? Does your Court?”

      Rowan stepped forward with a snarl as a bolt went through her chest.

      “Enough talking,” he snarled. “We’re in the middle of a battle. Are we going to fight or not?”

      Sam’s smirk developed a wolfish gleam. “Be careful what you wish for, King.” Then he struck.

     Rowan shoved Aelin back, parrying Sam’s blow with his sword.

     “No!” she yelled. “I’ll be your opponent!”

     They both froze.

     Sam’s grin deepened. “If that’s what you want.”

     Rowan stepped up to her side. “Aelin, you don’t have to do this.”

     She looked up at him, his green eyes shining with fury, love, concern.

     “Yes, I do,” she whispered.

     Her mate, her heart, opened his mouth to say something, probably to argue, but he closed it after a moment. “I’m here,” he said instead.

     “I know,” she said, the corner of her mouth tilting up. She turned to Sam. “Let’s do this the old fashioned way, shall we?” she said, motioning with her sword.

     Sam grinned. “As you wish.”

     Taking a breath, she took a step forward. And like a snake, struck.

     Sam parried the blade with that same easy arrogance that’d he’d once possessed.

     “You’ll have to do better than that, Aelin,” he sneered.

     “I’m just getting started,” she snarled back, and went right for his throat.

     It was like being back in the Guild and sparring with him, except this time he had the strength of a demon prince from another realm to help him. Back then she’d always beaten him easily, but now it was taking all of her skill and concentration to not die.

     She felt Rowan behind them, watching them like a hawk. His magic pulsed in the air, ready to provide support should she need it, but he maintained his distance as she and Sam circled each other.

     He moved first, sweeping his sword in a blow aimed straight at her head. She ducked and danced back out of reach as he lunged for her. She spun to meet his sword.

     They were a blur of armor and steel.

     All of her tricks, he countered, just as she did the same to him.

     The sound of metal up metal was deafening as they clashed and sprang apart and struck at each other all over again.

     Then he lunged, leaving the tiniest opening for her to take advantage of. 

     Stepping into his guard, Aelin disarmed him. He froze. A blow to his head with the hilt of her sword was enough to make him collapse to the ground.

     “You bitch,” he wheezed when he’d come back to his senses.

     Aelin could barely get the words out. “Is that really the only insult you people can come up with?”

      “Well? What are you waiting for?” Sam struggled to get to his knees, but he pushed himself into an upright position. “Finish it.”

     She opened her mouth, but she didn’t get a chance to speak.

     The only warning she had was another pulse of Athril’s ring on her finger. Darkness exploded from Sam, screams erupting everywhere around them.

      Before she or Rowan could make a move, the darkness disappeared as quickly as it came.

     In front of her, Sam was on all fours, chest heaving with the force of his breathing.

     He looked up at her, and it wasn’t the Valg inside him that was staring at her with desperation.

     “Celaena,” he groaned. “You have to kill me.”

     Aelin froze.

     Something in his face shifted, but he was back in a second. “Please, I can’t hold him back much longer.”

     She finally forced her voice to work. “Sam, I can’t -”

     “Please!” he screamed, voice breaking on the word.

     She took in the sight of Sam struggling to stay on his knees before her, the Valg Prince inside twisting his features into something unrecognizable as it took over once again.

     Aelin raised her flame-coated sword and, tears streaming down her face, plunged it through the heart of her first love.

     And then the screaming began.

     The flames vanished as they were drawn into Sam’s body, and Aelin stepped back. Rowan reached for her, joining their hands. As soon as they touched, Aelin felt his magic pouring into her, bolstering her diminished reserves.

     Sam’s screaming grew more intense as Rowan’s magic increased the power of her flames.

     Tears streamed down her face. She knew that this was how he’d screamed when he’d been taken apart piece by piece by Rourke Farran. And so Aelin didn’t look away, even as she felt the wound being torn wide open once more.

     Sam’s veins, his skin, was glowing from the light of her flames. His eyes shone golden. And then it all stopped.

     “Sam!” She shrieked, diving for him as the collar around his neck cracked and fell off, and he collapsed to the ground. She gathered him into her arms.

     His eyes fluttered open.

     “Celaena?”he whispered weakly.

     Celaena. The Valg Prince was gone, and Sam was back.

     “I’m sorry,” she sobbed. “Gods, I’m so sorry.”

     “Don’t be,” Sam groaned. “It wasn’t your fault. You had no way of knowing what would happen.”

     “How…how is this possible?” she whispered, taking in his face. Though his brown eyes were filled with pain, they were still his brown eyes, the ones that she’d grown up with, the ones that she’d come to love.

     “I don’t know. All I remember…is waking up in a dungeon and then getting that stone collar put around my neck.”

     Aelin swore softly.

     “There are so many things that I want to tell you,” she whispered. “Arobynn…he was the reason you…” She couldn’t bring herself to say the word. “Lysandra was the one who killed him.”

     Sam blinked. “He’s dead? And at Lysandra’s hands?”

     She nodded. “It’s been months. The Guild is Tern and Mullin’s now.”

      “Those bastards can have it,” he coughed, no small amount of cold satisfaction on his face.

     “Sam…I’m sorry,”she repeated. “This…everything, it was all my fault. Arobynn wasn’t the only one who was responsible for your death. It was my fault too, for daring to defy him.”

     “Celaena, it was my decision too. I knew…on some level that Arobynn….wouldn’t have let us live in peace, and yet…whatever time we had…I’m grateful for it.”

     “I never got to tell you,” she whispered, “that I loved you. Some part of me always did, and always will.”

     His eyes were shining with tears. His looked over her shoulder, gaze falling on Rowan.

     “Does he make you happy?”

     Aelin glanced back at her mate where he was guarding them, making sure that no one would interfere.

     “Yes,” she said, unable to keep the smile small off her face even as a pang of guilt went through her.

     Sam smiled, and her heart shattered a bit more.

     He sighed in what sounded like relief. “I’m glad…that you found someone who makes you happy, even if it’s not me. You…deserve it.”

     A violent cough wracked his body. Blood coated his lips, and he groaned in pain. “You should leave me,”he said. “I’m not…worth staying with any longer.” She heard his unspoken words.

     I’m not worth staying with because I won’t last much longer.

     “No,” she moaned. “Please, you have to hang on. You can’t leave me again. We can heal you. Rowan -”

     Sam stopped her with a hand on her cheek. “You know I can’t stay. I don’t belong here, not anymore.”

     “I don’t want you to go,”she whispered, almost like a child.

     “I know.” He coughed again, more violently this time. He took a shuddering breath. “There’s something you should know.

     “What is it?”

     “Your parents are proud of you.”

     Silence washed over her mind.

     ”What?”she whispered. “You…”

      “They were all there with me. When we realized that Erawan was trying to bring me back, they wanted me to pass on a message.”He took a breath. “They’re proud of the person, the queen…that you’ve become, and they wish more than anything they could tell you that in person. Marion…wants to thank you for finding Elide. She wants you to tell her that she’s proud of her. Orlon says there’s no one more worthy of being the next Queen of Terrasen. And Nehemiah…”

     Aelin sucked in her breath.

     “Nehemiah loves you. She’s sorry for sacrificing herself, and she hopes you can forgive her. More than anything, she’s proud to be your friend, and she’s happy that you’ve found good people to surround yourself with. She’s grateful that you protected Eyllwe as if it were your own kingdom. And she’s glad to see that you lived up to the name she gave you.”

     Aelin was sobbing now.

     “And I…despite the circumstances, I’m happy for the chance to see you again

     Sam gasped, coughing again. His mouth was completely crimson. His breathing accelerated.

     “Celaena, I’m scared,” he whispered. He was losing consciousness, fast. “What if I don’t go back there?”

     “Shhh.”She held him a little tighter. “It’ll be okay.”

     “Will…“ his eyes fluttered as he struggled to keep them open, “will you stay with me?”

     “To whatever end,” she whispered back, voice strong despite the tears streaming down her face.

      “The battle raged on around them, but Aelin held Sam as his breathing steadily grew more and more faint. He let out one more exhale, and then his chest stilled.

      She gently laid him down on the grass, closing his eyes, and slowly rose to her feet.

     “Fireheart…” Rowan took a step towards her.

     The flame inside of her guttered, then exploded. 

     Every one of Erawan’s minions within a 100-meter radius was burned to ash. 

     On her forehead shone the mark of Brannon as she looked at her mate, the killing calm overtaking the turmoil of her mind.

      “It’s time for Erawan to die.”

Love Like Salt // Samifer Fairytale

Words: 3570

Summary: King John rules over a beautiful and blooming kingdom, but his time is limited and he needs an heir. To find it, he asks his three sons how much they love him and while the two eldest please him with their answer, his youngest son, Sam, does not. In his anger and rage, he sends his son away, but he is not aware of the consequences or what Sam will find outside of his kingdom.

Read on AO3!

 Once upon a time there was a king who had three sons and ruled over a very wealthy and beautiful kingdom. His people were happy and so was the royal family, but the king was not the youngest anymore and he knew it was time to choose which of his sons would rule over the kingdom when he would not be there anymore. For many days and nights the king contemplated until he eventually came up with an idea. Knowing that he could only give his kingdom to the most loyal and trustworthy son, he decided to test their love for him. One evening, he called for them to find out.

i was talking to a friend about lesbian poets today. just briefly i mentioned the ones i’ve read–adrienne rich, marilyn hacker, audre lorde, sappho–and, inspired by a tumblr post, i then checked out a book by mary oliver. oliver was 70 when she lived through the death of a woman who had been her partner for more than 30 years. thinking about that, the timespans of these women’s lives, made me think a little bit about my personal history and my sexuality. i was going to make this a comic - and i still might, some day - but for now i just want to put it down in prose. thanks in advance for reading, if you do  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

anonymous asked:

I've been reading your Lego Movie fic since you started writing it, and I just wanted to finally break my lurker silence and say this: you're doing God's work by continuing to write and post Lego fic, and the past 3 years for me have been made a bit brighter by both the Lego Movie itself and your contributions to the fandom. You're a huge inspiration to me for writing, together with Paperspot (I'm so sad they died/left/disappeared!!). You're the best, Cleversnail. Stay classy.

Oh my god this is lovely. I’m…just so touched by this message, Anon. Thank you for reading, after all this time. Thank you. ❤️❤️❤️

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy the thought of Harry and Draco back at Hogwarts years after they leave? If not, let me take a few moments of your time to elucidate:

  • Banter
  • Inter-house rivalry at the head table
    • inter-house rivalry between classes
  • Knowing (memorizing) each other’s schedule and casually bringing it up in conversation–with or outside of each other
  • Seeming like a married couple to everyone else but not realizing it themselves
  • Intense quidditch debates in the staff room
    • students like to hang around outside because they’re always loud and always hilarious (and sometimes often result in creative new insults to add to their repertoire)
  • Grading together in one of their quarters and snarking over ridiculous student answers
  • Quibbling over teaching methods to the point of pedantry just to be annoying to the other
  • Trying the “I’ve never been more shocked by student behaviour in my life” approach on students who misbehave, none of whom believe it because they’ve heard stories of Harry and Draco’s time at Hogwarts (usually by the other in classes, ex. Draco climbing a tree because he wanted Harry’s attention)
  • Patrolling the hallways over Christmas hols
    • “Here. This is the statue Flitwick said he’s caught kids fooling around behind. Go check it out.”
    • “Why do I have to go?”
    • “What are you, scared?”
    • “… Fine, you absolute tosser. …Woah, Malfoy, come check this out.”
    • “What? What is it?”
    • “Just get back here and you’ll see.”
    • “I’m not going to fall for your tricks, Potter. I’m not going back there.”
    • “Malfoy….”
    • Fine.”
      • They end up necking behind the statue like students
      • It becomes a repeat occurrence


A recent episode of my show OK KO!, “A Hero’s Fate” is a fully-absorbed finale of my old comic RPG World. RPG World was a comic that I made when I was a teenager(Starting in August 2000). A lot of people ended up liking the comic and I was a little too young to take that fact seriously. I never finished the comic’s story because… I was a flighty teenager and I ended up going to animation school. After a fruitful decade-plus of working in animation, I was thrilled to return to my old characters.

If you were a fan of RPG World, please seek out this episode and watch it! It’s a special treat just for you!

Originally the story wasn’t going to have any specific call-outs to the comic but the storyboard team for the episode, Ryann Shannon and Parker Simmons crafted a narrative around Hero and KO learning to value the people in their lives AND their heroic ambitions.

Ryann created an epilogue to the episode which showed Hero returning to comic form to finish his story. I felt very embarrassed by this but it made so much sense in the story’s context. I leaned into it and using her rough version as a guide, drew the full ending page myself. I rummaged thru my supplies and broke out the same set of pens I used to ink the comic with, and scanned it on my same old scanner. I tried to emulate my coloring style from back then(MAN ALIVE I was SO into gradients)… I used to do the comic three times a week so doing it again was a surreal experience. 

The whole thing has ended up being very cathartic. Knowing that Hero and Cherry will live on in endless worldwide repeats of this episode is mindblowing.

p.s. If this post inspires you to go look up and read RPG World, I pre-emptively apologize for my clumsy and possibly offensive teenage writing and artistic skills. I barely knew what I was doing! I’m shocked that people even liked it!

It’s on days that I have to fight the hardest to stay alive that I remind myself that maybe, just maybe, it’s the ones who have to fight the hardest that God has the biggest plans for.

Something this episode revealed about Rick is he’s very much a perfectionist, with his need for perfectly level tables, his careful maintenance of his image through erasing memories. He won’t even let his tiniest of slip ups be remembered. 

He wants to be seen as above and beyond. And yeah, he’s the smartest man in the multiverse, but he’s still human and he’s threatened by that. In the Toxic episode, it’s shown that the Toxic Rick cared even more about Morty than Healthy Rick. And yet Toxic Rick also put his Morty down and verbally abused him. I might be reading too much into things, but what if Rick’s worried that if people know how flawed he is as a person and that he’s not actually that superior, they won’t respect or care about him anymore?

How To Attract What You Desire

Before you begin:

• Know what you want. What you really want. And don’t think of “how” you’ll get it.
• Write the desire in present tense on a card. It is now your goal card.
• Carry this card with you and read it often. This is putting the desire into your subconscious mind.
• Check if your goal is really what you want. Can you imagine bigger? Are you letting fear stop you? Are you answering your soul’s calling with this?


• How you fall asleep determines what shows up in your life. Everytime. Without fail. So we start our day how we fell asleep the night before, actually. Ask your self one question before you sleep: “If my wishes were fulfilled, how would I feel?” Fall asleep to that question satisfied.
• Record an MP3 or voice note of your OWN voice, reciting positive affirmations. Get examples online but personalize them. Your subconscious mind trusts your own voice. Use it.
• Never ever let yourself fall asleep feeling stress or failure. Don’t invite it in.


• When your eyes open, set your intention for the day.
• Did you have any dreams last night? Write them down.
• Write 5 things you’re grateful for. Increase to 10 after a while and begin to include wishes that are yet to manifest e.g. “I’m grateful I now weigh __”


• Read Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. (PDF’s online) Read slowly and reflectively.
• Read Feeling Is The Secret by Neville Goddard (PDF’s online)
• The Secret book/DVD is great for beginners but you’re going to have to dig deeper to pull this off.
• Do what makes you smile. Read, play your music, call a friend, go for walks. Do whatever you can to lighten your mood.
Write about your desire as if it’s already happened.
Visualize your life ASSUMING the desire has already happened. How do you feel? What are you wearing? Where are you? Was manifesting easy and fun?


Bruce Lee, Jim Carrey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Oprah Winfrey, Big Sean, Conor McGregor and countless others have used this formula. It works, and it will work for you.

it's ok
  • it’s okay to fail a test as long as you did your best, you studied hard, and you learned something.
  • it’s okay to prioritize yourself. to feel the need to be your number one priority.
  • it’s okay to have those smol freckles on your nose or those smol flabs on your tummy or that ball of fat on your chest. that’s biology.
  • it’s okay to be so confused over something. over left and right. over calculus. over everything. it does not mean you’re dumb.
  • it’s okay to accept you’re struggling with a new language that you’re trying to learn. it’s not your first language, im proud of your progress.
  • it’s okay to be soft even when people think you’re just doing it to be cute. you’ve always been cute and being soft is being strong.
  • it’s okay to cry. if you feel the need to, just do it. crying helps me cleanse my sad soul. it might help you, too.
  • it’s okay to use another sheet of watercolor paper. it does not mean you suck or you’re wasting too much money. it means you have so many ideas you’re excited to show.
  • it’s okay to eat. it’s a necessity and it makes you extra healthy! eating gives you the energy to survive life.
  • it’s okay to wear that outfit. as long as you’re feeling cute. you’re alright and you’ll rock it.
  • it’s okay to drink. drink water, drink alcohol. doesn’t matter if you want to hydrate or you want to forget. just try not to intoxicate your body too often
  • it’s okay to struggle with art and writing. we all do, trust me. sometimes, it just won’t get you but that’s alright. it’s all part of the process. we’re all going through this.
  • it’s okay to feel pretty. if you think you look pretty on pink hair that’s alright. but i want you to know that you’ve always been pretty.
  • it’s okay to not be okay. really, don’t hate yourself for being so anxious over everything. it’s going to be okay one day.

You should always check why and how you ship two men. If those two men never/rarely interact, if they are abusive/violent with each other, if there is already an actual established gay couple in the fandom that you choose to ignore because you don’t find them as attractive as your chosen ones (who are more often than not white and straight) - if any of these points apply to your ship, you should try and think whether you are spreading a healthy image of what a real mlm relationship looks like or not. If you don’t care about that, then you are here only to satisfy your fetish. And mlm deserve better than that.

august 21st aka fanfic writers appreciation day.

i saw this post going around and i’ve decided to make a post to a) recommend you some great stories and amazing writers, b) give some sort of feedback. i don’t really have that much time to read anymore, so this won’t be that long. as soon as i get more time, i’ll start reading again :) the list is in no specific order, i was going through my “following” list and through my fic recs blog.

@noona-la-la-la  — i recommend literally everything noona ever wrote. i love her style and her plots and the fact that she always manages to exceed my expectations. she’s one of those writers whose stories aren’t just about the smut, which i love. of course, the amazing smut is just a bonus. my favorite story of hers is either unexpected or conditioned (which is also one of my fave tae stories ever. e v e r.) and her vmin threesome the group project is amazing! i’m so far up her ass it’s not even funny, but i seriously love everything about her blog and her writing.

@ellieljade  — amazing plots! a m a z i n g. and the dirty talk! the smut scenes are just too good, and mr.min is my favorite yoongi series. i love the plot, i love the fact that the characters aren’t labeled as good or bad, there’s a lot of grey areas and you never know what to expect. if you want to cry, read her this is how you lose her series and come bitch about it with me. and did i mention sub namjoon? because damn, watch me is amazing.

@avveh — some of the best dirty talk and pwp ever. i enjoy reading her stories from the first one she posted, which is reveries. i don’t even watch the show it’s based on, but i love the series. emily can really suck you into the plot, regardless of the smut. of course, you know me, my favorite is jealousy games because jungkook AND jimin. you know.

@xhixtape — i could go on about lila forever. the flow in her stories is amazing, i love the slow build ups in some stories, and i love the smut in all of them. she’s a huge inspiration for me and her work has inspired a lot of mine, i think i might be her biggest fan. read everything! my favorites are kitten’s got his tongue, good mornings, and vibrations. vibrations, man!!!

@tayegi — lu is one of the OGs of bts fanfics, so i’m sure you’re all already reading her stories. i lover her ocs, i love that they know how to speak for themselves and that they know what they want and aren’t afraid to go for it. my favorites are fuck, marry, kill (because JIMIN), the golden boy because T A E, and friendship goals because TAEGI.

@kimtrain — okay, one good purr had me hooked ! i loved the slow burn and tae′s character and everything about it, from the plot to her style. that’s also one of my favorite tae stories ever.  also, the wings of a devil? b o m b. she has a huge masterlist and i need to read all of her stories.

@floralseokjin — blessed is the day i found out about jordan’s blog. i love everything she writes, i don’t care what member the stories are about because they’re that good. i love her style because it makes me get into the story so much that i can’t stop reading. the first story i read was salt and shadow and i still love it. her jin stories are the best out there and i love reading them. show me might be my fave. also, playing with fire is bomb.

@gukvory —  can you feel it, sugar? is a masterpiece. actually, everything on this masterlist is a masterpiece. i love her writing style, i love the flow, i love the feeling i get when reading her stories. just read everything of hers, you won’t regret it.

@kittae — eva writes for other groups as well! i’ve only read most of her bts stories, and my faves are v-card because it’s the right amount of everything, and favourites and servants is so good! there’s still so many stories on her masterlist to read and i can’t wait to read more. 

@dailydoseofdia — i’m gonna recommend carousel because it’s one of the stories i’ve been meaning to read, but just didn’t have enough time for, even though everyone is praising it. i’ve read dia’s fics and they’re amazing, so i don’t doubt that carousel is just as great. lick was amazing and it’s the first thing i’ve read on her blog.

@chinnychimchim — ah. ah! one of my favorite writers. i seriously love everything she posts, i don’t ever check who the story is about. my favorite has to be reset. it’s such a good story and i haven’t read anything similar, so i love it. cognitive dissonance is also a must read. just read the entire masterist while you’re at it, it’s worth it.

@kstopping  — who doesn’t want a good mmf threesome with vmon? that’s exactly what cinnamon sugar is and i LOVE IT. also tags that crack me up every time.

@jungkookfortunekookies  — for those who don’t read smut, there’s a ton of popular stories on her masterlist, including jungkook roommate series which is so fun and easy to read!

@jeylovestoblog — i’ve heard jey writes amazing reader/girl/member threesomes, so i need to check them out, and i recommend you do the same. she updates often, so i’m sure you’ll find something for yourself.

@rapmonluv — all i’ve read so far is nightcall and it’s enough for me to know i’ll love everything else.

@jingukz — sarah’s stories are amazing and you know that i prefer smut, but her stories are that good. she doesn’t need smut to pull you in, but when it’s there, it’s great. bliss among sinners is probably my fave, but the first one i’ve read is cry me a river and i’m still not over it.

@emboyz — i still need to go through her masterlist, but i’ve read good catch and it’s great!

@pjxmin — i don’t get how everyone’s not talking about her writing. caught in a lie is amazing, proposals is such a good story, her writing is amazing and her stories are fun and they just pull you in. amazing writer!

@cosykims — merlot murders (the crimson killer, kisses of carmine) is the most underrated series i’ve ever read. it has everything and i can’t praise it enough, seriously. you need to read it!

@jiminniemouse — i think i’ve read everything of hers and there wasn’t a single story i didn’t like. i love her style, i love her plots, i just love everything about her writing. purple jewels is so well written and interesting, i can’t get enough. seriously, i recommend everything.

@wonhopes — amanda’s writing is amazing. i think you’ve all read not so honest, but i think my favorite might be cat got your tongue because TAEEEE.

@mindfullofcrazy — i absolutely loved give me love!!!

@hobibliophile — i think i’ve read everything on her masterlist and i loved it! my favorites are take a break (jihope threesome ftw), blue blooded (prince jin!!!), and don’t care about the presents (namjoon being a cutie).

@kainks — i love her writing style! my favorites are new guy and triplicity because damn, hoseok and yoongi threesome? i’m in. orange tulips is on my to read list, i’ve heard great things about it.

@versigny — if you haven’t read miss dial, i don’t know what you’re doing. read it. now. i love it!

@baeseoul  — protege is probably my favorite jungkook series ever. it’s so well written, i love the plot, i love the characters and their flaws, i just love everything about the story. destruction of a muse is on my to read list. just great writing in general, one of my favorite writers.

@protectaetae — i love her writing style! one night snap pt 1 and 2 saved me.

@taehyung-the-baehyung  — closer is amazing and so is the suit and tie series! amazing :)

@jheartseok — i still haven’t read nude, not flowers and i suck because i’ve heard it’s an amazing story. i need to read everything of hers.

@roseok — just read everything. amazing writing.

@drquinzelharleeni’m not a kid is a great series. there’s so much more i have to read from her masterlist, but i like her writing style!

there are a lot of writers who i still need to check out and i’m looking forward to it. i’m sorry if i’ve forgotten someone! if i’ve ever given you a compliment about your writing, i truly meant it. i hope i’ve included everyone. if you go check out these writers, please don’t ask them about updates :)
