“i find myself at times wondering what might’ve become of the girl with the beautiful golden mirror, but such fantasies have no place amidst reality.”
so like, morrigan is ashamed of loving fancy stuff, and forces herself to dismiss them because her upbringing has forced her to only consider survival and power to be worthy goals, right? so i feel like she’d start out in origins with much more practical clothing and only start wearing stuff like her canon outfit after some time spent recovering from flemeth’s influence… but idk, that’s just my onion
If you have the time and if you don't mind, what are some books you really recommend? Doesn't have to be all time faves, but anything that pops into mind that you want more ppl to read and love, Extra points if lgbt+ , i got the whole summer with little to do and i wanna spend it reading some good quality writing and honestly so far your recs have introduced me to so many faves its unbelievable
[blushes profusely] oh wow, thank you!!! i’m so glad you’ve trusted me enough to check out some of the stuff i reblog; that is like the ultimate compliment, i can’t even??? i don’t mind at all(!), fair warning though: i only started recording what i read partway through last year and my mind is like a sieve so i’ll do my absolute best to remember what’s sang to me in the recent past. warning number two: i’m in an open relationship with absolutely every genre out there so i’ll try to note which belongs where so you can avoid those that hold no interest for you.
i’ll give you the sun. i loved this book, the writing is fucking transformative and all the characters are so damn likable, while still being realistically flawed human beings.
the raven cycle (tetralogy). definitely my favorite series since harry potter. the writing, the world-building, the characters, it’s all on top-form. i wrote a little, mini non-spoilery review of it: here, back when i was better (worse?) wordly-wise and my feels were brand new.
more happy than not. i’m still not sure how i feel about this book. it was hard, but it felt very true to the characters and the lingo and style matched the ages of the players and i have a lot of respect for that.
the watchmaker of filigree street. woooow i loved this book. i admit ‘historical fiction’ kind of makes me cringe. it never precludes me from reading a book but it does knock it down the list by a book or five because they’re often very dense and very clunky and end up taking me ages to get through. but this one was gorgeous. i loved the plot, the attention lovingly placed on every character and the historical elements. the surprise gay in an already brilliant book felt like winning the lottery honestly.
captive prince (trilogy). okay, truthfully, i’m only putting this on here because the second book is such a high point for me. it was never bad at any point but it had unfortunately been hyped far too much for it to live up to my, admittedly, very high expectations. hopefully it’ll fare better with you?
everything i never told you. i go back and forth on this one. i like the writing a lot, i like the LGBT aspect a lot, and i like the mystery aspect a lot but there are definitely characters i would cut out entirely for sheer predictability if i could and that killed a lot of my enjoyment at the time (but i think much more highly of it in retrospect?). so, take that as you like.
the diviners. (also has a minor LGBT character, who may play a bigger role in the sequel?) fair warning, i have not read the sequel, lair of dreams, because it is somehow still not out in paperback (yes, i read physical books, yes, i pretty exclusively read paperbacks so i can lug them everywhere with me, YES, I PRE-ORDERED THIS ALMOST TWO YEARS AGO AND IT’S STILL NOT OUT, NOT THAT I’M BITTER ABOUT THAT OR ANYTHING) so i can’t speak to that one finishing on a high note as i don’t know. but this was the first historical novel i managed to like in a long while. it does such a good job of fusing in 1920s lingo and dress and aspects that i couldn’t help but love it. add in the fantasy elements and i can admit i’m the perfect sucker for it.
the scorpio races. i’m not sure why but it took me a long-ass time to get into this book, i wasn’t flipping pages with gusto until well towards the end but - especially as i was reading so much YA at the time - i really appreciated coming across a romance that lets both people come into it as themselves and stay themselves, neither puck nor sean were ever smashed or crumpled or shaved away to fit into their relationship, which was so refreshing. plus the water horses were fucking cool.
the night circus. the writing, the atmosphere, the circus. just… it is all very whoa.
i’ll meet you there. there was something about this and i just… ended up liking it way more than i expected to. i might’ve just read it at exactly the right time, i’m not sure, but i really enjoyed it.
the invoice. this is honestly just hella cute and so freaking surreal. swedes, man.
why not me? i like mindy kaling a lot. i make no apologies for that. plus you can read both her books in about five seconds, haha.
station eleven. i loved this book. the way the narrative is woven is so refreshing and i wish the comic book miranda was writing in this book was a real thing more than anything else in the woooorld.
illuminae. hot DAMN this book was cool. the plot was rock solid, the characters were hilarious and badass and the graphics made out of text and spiraling words and just the way this thing is put together? shit, it’s worth your money and then some.
a robot in the garden. okay this is just cute as hell. i can’t even with tang, he’s the most adorable robot to ever adorable.
annihilation (southern reach trilogy). (LGBT minor characters.) okay, honestly? i don’t know. this was freaking zany but i was invested as fuck in all the kookiness for reasons i can’t articulately elaborate on.
the martian. hilarious, engaging, SPACE. what more do you want?
things we lost in the fire. this is more atmospheric than anything but, damn, could this get me wishing i wasn’t reading this in the dark or looking over my shoulder to make absolutely sure no one was standing behind me. it’s a book of short stories (by the way, i love books of short stories and i definitely realize that is not true for everyone) and each one is so well-delivered and stylized. i really enjoyed reading this.
let the right one in. okay, this is legit horror so definitely stay away if you’re easily squicked out but it is harrrrrd to find good horror (at least in my opinion) and this definitely, definitely qualifies.
horrorstör. i honestly had such low expectations for this, a horror story set in a wannabe-ikea, but it ended up being so ridiculous and strange and funny that i was won over by the finish.
the bigness of the world. there were definitely ones here that hit better than others but the ones i liked, i really liked!
GRAPHIC NOVELS (i read a lot of these so, um, prepare yourself)
saga. (LGBT minor characters as well.) this is world-building to a degree that i’m convinced did not exist before. just, i can’t say enough amazing things about this series and the staggering amount of imagination that regularly goes into it.
ms. marvel. heart-warming as fuck. it’s definitely really easy to lose faith in the world these days, luckily kamala is there to remind you that people are primarily and genuinely good.
black science. this is another one that took just an insane amount of imagination to cook up. i got off to kind of a rocky start with this one but the gray-ness of all the characters really speaks to me, and that doesn’t really blossom until later in the series.
spider-man/deadpool. this was very satisfying for my super duper spideypool-shipping mind. joe and ed did us so good, and joe basically said in his sign-off: i made it absolutely as gay as they would let me, haha.
the wicked + the divine. (LGBT minor characters that you’re going to get way too attached to, and retroactively. it’s awful [sobs].) the concept for this, gods reincarnating into teenagers before they burn up their hosts after a predetermined set of time, is so fucking cool. the humor and the characters and the plot is all just aces.
iceman (LGBT MAIN CHARACTER). okay, so this just started. like issue #2 was only released days ago but 1) i am liking it so far and 2) marvel did it so dirty and barely advertised bobby - an openly homosexual superhero - was getting his own series, like, i found out about it the day before it went on sale and i keep my ear fairly close to the ground (not as close as some BY A LOT, but closer than the lay person i’d say) so if you can support it, please do! pre-orders mean a lot in terms of numbers. :))))
descender. admittedly, this starts out rooough. because the main character, TIM-21 (and his little dog too), are annoying as hell. he’s an android so there’s no dimension to him so he’s booooring as all get out but i am so glad i stuck with it through to the next trade because, probably picking up on the unsustainability of him as a main character, he gets shuffled off and the side characters get the stage and they rock so hard.
paper girls. (LGBT main characters.) i’m kind of just convinced that brian k. vaughan can do no wrong at this point. his plots are so tight and mind-blowing and badass.
monstress. here’s a little tid-bit about me: female comic book writers are 100% more likely to get my money and my time because they are so damn rare and this series is unique, badass, and eye-opening.
black monday murders. i’m a little premature with this since there’s only one volume and i usually try to wait until there are at least two but i check up on a volume two a lot so that definitely means something intrigued me!
nailbiter. okay, i haven’t read the final volume yet ‘cause i’m reluctant to let it go but, so far, a series about multiple serial killers all being from the same town has me VERY HOOKED.
i wish i could remember more but this is honestly way better than i expected to do, haha. they’re definitely not all my all-time faves but they’re ones that have stuck with me for one reason or another and that i didn’t feel i wasted my time on, so that’s something, right? i hope this helps get you started and that you don’t think too awfully of me when you inevitably run across ones that aren’t your cup of tea!
This is how we heal. I will kiss you like forgiveness. You will hold me like I’m hope.

I had the immense pleasure of commissioning @merwild to draw my hot mess of an Inquisitor, and am so, so pleased with the result. I mean look at this beautiful thing here! If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend you take it; Coco is professional, super skilled (clearly), and fast.
please remember that fiona, ex-slave, ex-grey warden, grand enchanter, leader of the mage rebellion, the legend who said ‘fuck the divine’, lover of king maric, friend of duncan, rival of wynne, mother of the king, and the only grey warden ever to be cured of the taint exists
Authors Note: I got a bit carried away, hope y’all still enjoy!
The first time with Jin was a result of your sexual frustration. You knew from your friends that these frustrations would eventually come around the age of 19, but you didn’t think much of it. It was only until you started your relationship with Jin that you began to grow more needy for his body, Though he wanted to take things slow, step by step.
It happened when you were watching porn, home alone and intrigued by the scenes in front of you. When the doorbell rang, you couldn’t hold yourself back any more. You needed to feel him.
You almost ran to the door, opening it to see Jin standing there. You didn’t give him any time and dragged him inside and into the bedroom. He was somewhat confused, but he let you drag him onto the bed. You straddled him and began kissing him furiously while grinding down onto his clothed cock. He fidget uncomfortable, feeling his member grow with the second. He stops you as he held your shoulders, trying to find your eyes.
’___, are you really sure?’
You nod, smiling down at him as you zipped his zipper down and immediately pulled out his hard dick. He groans loudly by the feeling of your hands on him and now also became very eager. He flipped the both of you so he was above you and it didn’t take him long until he got the both of you naked and he was alining his dick with your entrance. He teased you, sliding his cock through your folds before slowly pushing his tip inside. It hurt, very much. The stretch was something so foreign for you and you needed to ease into the feeling. And so he did, he was careful, soft and caring. He had made sure he took your virginity with not just a quick fuck, but with love.
’Fuck ___, I love you so much.’ He groaned before finally making a pace and planning on making love to you the whole night long.
’Fuck.’ He mutters under his breath as he sees your naked form, walking across the bathroom. It wasn’t planned to walk into such a sight, but he wasn’t sorry either. He doesn’t know what to do since he knows that you’re still a virgin and he wants it all to be special. But seeing you like this made his dick hard in a matter of time.
That’s why he decided to just walk up to you, pushing his body flush against yours and making you gasp in the process. You look in the mirror behind you to see his dark expression and you can feel his cock poking into your back through his jeans.
’___, look what you do to me…’ he now circles his hips around, looking for more friction. ’I need you so bad.’ He growls into your ear and you can feel yourself becoming wet by his words, thighs pressing up against each other. You push back against him, now also growing needy for him and it was a signal for him to go on with his actions. He kisses your shoulder while pushing down his pants and pulling off his shirt until he was fully naked, a condom being slid down his length. He played with your folds, feeling the wetness surround his fingers.
’Are you sure?’
’Yes please, Yoongi…’ you whined and with that, he pushed inside of you, slow and steady to take your virginity with care. After he was fully inside of you and you got used to the stretch, he began an animalistic pace, showing just how much he loves your pussy around his member.
’So fucking tight and beautiful...’
This wasn’t the first time he slept at your apartment, but it was still so different from every other peaceful night. You had decided that this would be the day you’re going to give your virginity to him and you’d gotten yourself ready for it. You bought black lingerie so he could unpack you and rose paddles were spread over the bed. And then, you just waited on your bed. You knew he could return home any moment and it got you very nervous but anticipation still getting the better of you.
Then suddenly your heard to front door close and footsteps coming up to the bedroom. When the door opened, you see a wide eyed Hoseok standing in the doorway. You see his pants getting tighter and a pulge forming slowly, but surely.
’Fuck ___, is this really what you want?’
’Otherwise I wouldn’t have done this all Hobie, now please just come and fuck me’ you pleaded and Hoseok didn’t hesitate any minute longer before his clothes were pulled off and your lingerie were thrown around the bedroom. He had pinned you down, arms above your head as he spread your legs to look at a newfound image he wanted to remember.
’You’re so wet, princess. Can I pleasure you?’ He asks, wanting a last confirmation and you gave him a nod to push his cock into you. He pulled out a condom from out his wallet, which was somewhere on the ground, unpacking and pulling it down around his cock before pushing himself into you, inch for inch. Your back arched into the bed by the ache, but you still felt so complete with him stretching you out like that. He made a slow pace and kept that pace until you started to whine for him to go faster. Then he starts to trust powerful and deep while passionating kissing you.
’Just wait baby girl, I can do a whole lot more than this.’
You were having a heavy make-out session in the bathrooms of a house unknown to you. It was at a party, celebrities and producers all over the place, but Namjoon and you of course needed to get all touchy with each other. After some teasing he had dragged you to the bathroom to feel you closer against him, his lust of the past few months becoming the better of him.
’Let’s go back to the hotel.’ You breathe while partening your lips from his. ’Are you sure baby?’
You nod, now dragging him with you right to the cars and driving to your hotel. When you both entered the room, you were again all over each other. He pushed you down on the bed and got a condom from the shelf. He unclothed the both of you, taking his time with revealing every single part of your naked body.
He kissed every inch of your neck to your dripping entrance and then began to eat you out furiously, getting you rilled up for what’s about to come. After a while he finally lined up to your entrance and pushed inside slowly, arms around your smaller body and trusting slowly to get you used to the feeling. After a while his pace fastened and moans left your mouth from the pleasure shooting through your body.
’You feel so good ___, fuck I love you. You’re all mine and no one else’s.’
It actually began so innocent, him tickling you out of no where when you were spread along the couch. You giggled loudly while trying to push away Jimin’s hands, but accidentally some skin got exposed during your little play fight. It appeared to be that you weren’t wearing any bra and that got him hard in an instant. He looks carefully up into your widened eyes, but he still saw a glint of arousal into you demeanor.
He lays a hand on your belly, coldness cursing through your body. You swallow as you follow his hand, which is trailing up your body until it reached your exposed breasts, nipples perked. He massages it slightly and his tump is circling around your nipples to get them harder.
Then you pulled him down to connect your mouths and tugged on his sweatpants to pull it off, which he helped you with. After a short while, you both were naked and ready for each other, him between your legs, condom around his cock and fingers sliding over your folds and sometimes inserting a finger into your entrance.
’Are you sure jagi?’ He says, kissing your nose. You nod as you bring his body closer to you. He then pushes into you, slowly and steady to stretch you out nicely. It was hard for him to keep steady before you yourself began to move up, trying to feel more friction. He groaned loudly before beginning a pace into you and working up to a love-making night.
You woke up to a groaning noise beside you. You didn’t dare to look, because you know what Taehyung is doing the moment your name rolled off his tongue. It wasn’t the first time, you knew he sometimes got off when you were sleeping and he simply had a boner, but it never failed to wake you up and to get you all wet and bothered. This time however, you wanted to change things.
You turn around to him, eyes trailing over his body and right to his dick in his hands, thick and hard, standing proud for your attention. He, however, widened his eyes and wanted to cover himself up, but you stopped him. You pulled off all your clothes before straddling his lap, sitting down on his cock, which lays flat against his stomach. Your began to grind down onto it, folds spread because of his cock and Taehyung could swear he had never seen something hotter than this. He groans loudly as he grabbed your sides, pushing you down with more force.
’Fuck princess, are you sure?’ He growls and you nod before leaning in and whispering ’I even take the pill, please fuck me Taehyung.’
That almost made him cum right there and then and was quick to aline you with his dick before easing you down onto his member. You moan by the stretch, pain shooting through your body, but was quick to recover after a minute. Then you began to grind up and down on him as he thrusted up into you while pulling you closer, almost obsessively.
’Baby… you’re so fucking tight and warm. Don’t ever go away from me, you’re mine.’
’I want you to take my virginity.’
You say as you walk up to him, random as always. His eyes couldn’t get wider as he stood there. He just got home and is confused to why you felt the sudden need. but, nonetheless, it still got him horny vastly, images of your naked body under his caring flying through his head.
’Are you sure?’
‘Yes, and now please.’
His expression changed to a smirk as he took off his coat and shoes. ’How can I not follow up to my girlfriend’s needs?’ He says, as a matter of fact, before he lifted you up and you wrapped your legs around his middle as he took you to the bedroom. Once there, he undressed you quickly out of your pajamas and laid you back onto the bed to undress himself. Once both fully naked, he began discovering your body, making hickeys all over your body to finally marking you as his own. Everyone can know what he did to you and he wouldn’t give one fuck. You are his and he can do whatever he wants with you.
After a while you began to whine, wanting to feel his thick member inside of you. He took no time in alining his member onto your entrance and filling you up completely. You gasp by the pain and hold onto his arms. He gave you a minute, kissing you to distract the pain.
As pleasure took over, he began to make a pace and moans left his mouth by the feeling. You also let out moans, even louder than Jungkooks as you both sank in an immense pleasurable feeling.
’___, I will fuck you all night after this. No way in- fuck- hell that I can stay away from that pretty little cunt of yours.’
