Do you have recommendations for a Klance slowburn fic? (Doesn't really matter if it's an AU)
Friend f r i e n d it’s been ages since I actually got to sit down and read a fic but I’ve read lots of them in the past so you definitely came to the right person :P (I actually wrote one of my own; it’s called Magic Me Some Love and is about Galra!Keith/Magician!Lance in a medieval fantasy setting, if you’re into that.)
Now. Slow burn klance fics that aren’t on pretty much every fic rec list out there already with a minimum of either 60k words or that are unfinished still:
Keith is texted by accident by some idiot one day, and honestly he’s not even sure why he responds. Or why he keeps responding. Yet somehow he finds himself drawn in, and okay, so maybe this fool is mildly entertaining after all. Who would’ve thought.
>>wrong number AU with an extra dash of angst. But if you’ve read any of the other fics this author has written you’ll know that they specialize in fluff and that absolutely shines through in the fic^^
20 years after the legendary sword Voltron was drawn from its stone by Queen Allura, it is stolen and eventually lost in the dangerous Balmeran Forest. To prevent the rogue knight Zarkon, his witch companion Haggar and their army of Galra warriors from claiming the sword and conquering all of Altea, it falls to Lance, with the help of a dark-haired hermit, to embark on the treacherous journey, save his kingdom and reunite his broken family.
>>if you don’t mind OCs that you get to know throughout the fic taking on a more important role, you should totally check out this fic. It’s plot heavy and reads like a published novel :D
Lance has been dreaming of travelling since the first time he heard stories from his family as a child. Now, having finally the time and money to do it, he goes on a trip to Europe to see some of the most culturally rich cities on the continent. Except he keeps bumping into the same guy over and over again, in random cities, doing stupid shit, and ultimately dragging Lance into his trouble, too.
>>it’s one of the few fics that I haven’t read personally yet and still won’t hesitate to recommend. lots of my friends have read and praised it, apparently it’s fluffy and fun. it’s absolutely on my to read list :D
When Keith crashed his Lion into a Galra warship in order to stop it from destroying a solar system, and more importantly, his friends, he was fully prepared to die for it. What he didn’t prepare for was to wake up in an alternate universe where he and Lance were dating.
>>this one. if you haven’t read it yet, go read it. it was my fav voltron fic for a long long time!!!! it’s got it all, plot, romance, character development, realistic amounts of angst- it’s very very good.
The Castle of Lions is the venue for the city’s most dangerous illegal street races where drivers come to test the cut of their tires. Lance has long defended his title as champion, but when a newcomer shows up and threatens his position things take an interesting turn.
>>not into cars and street racing AUs? neither am i, my friend, and yet this is one of the best voltron fics i’ve read. trust me when i tell you that you want to read everything written by this author.
When Lance is thrown through time, his future self from one year ahead is transported to the past in his place. - When Lance is thrown through time, he finds himself one year in the future, in place of the Lance that should be here.
>>WHEN I SAW THAT THESE TWO WRITERS WOULD COLLAB ON A FIC I NEARLY DIED BRUH THESE MIRROR FICS ARE AMAZE JUST LIKE THEIR OTHER FICS
In a world where monstrous dragons terrorize humanity daily, the Garrison trains valiant Knights to slay the evil beasts and defend Earth. But when Knight cadet Lance Espinosa is kidnapped by a strange red dragon who kills its own kind, certain truths are revealed…and so are the true monsters.
>>dragon au i repeat dragon au this is not a drill everyone - this fic!!! is freaking!!!! amazing!!!!!!! it’s in my top 5 minimum go try it out :D
Go back to school they said. It’ll be fun they said. Yeah, sure. It’s tons of fun scaling lava walls, accidentally setting things on fire, and being babysat by the school’s flirt. When Lance signed up (*cough* bribed *cough*) to show the new firebug around the school he thought it would be a piece of cake. He did not anticipate the sour attitude, spontaneous explosions, intimate moments in elevators…
>>the sky high au you always knew you needed :D it’s still in the very early stages but the fic is really fun so far!!
Lance has too much time on his hands, Keith doesn’t have enough. Lance leans more towards being outgoing and sociable, while Keith keeps to himself and can be mostly unpleasant. Neither think they have anything in common. What they don’t realize, however, is that there happens to be a very popular graphic novel that connects them together. Lance happens to be an avid reader and Keith just happens to secretly be the author.
>>another fic i’m super pumped for oh my god. each new chapter mail has me grinning like a maniac. the waiting between updates is suffering but all worth it in the end. it’s fun and interesting and i love it!
Keith commits the ultimate taboo as a grim reaper: he saves a life. More specifically, he saves Lance’s life. Now they are forever linked, unable to survive without the other. Keith must protect Lance from the forces that are trying to right Keith’s wrong and kill Lance.
>>skdfghjksfhgdksjfhgjfjd i cannot describe it. the plot is really amazing and keith and lance are so attracted to each other but they can’t kiss because that would literally kill lance. it belongs to the top most interesting voltron fics out there :D
Keith is a superhero who’s been pining after the cute boy who works at the music shop across the street from HQ. He also doesn’t know that the cute boy is the same vigilante he wants to bring to justice.
>>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! all the chapters are insanely long but they’re all worth it. the plot develops rather slowly but it’s perfect as it is :P the slowest of burns. despite that it never made me lose interest in it so definitely go check it out if you have multiple hours of nothing to do!! :D
I’m gonna stop here because this list is already insanely long but it is faaaaaar from finished, believe me. This fandom produces so many good fics I can’t keep up with it ; - ;
“Come on Y/n! Don’t just stand there!” you freeze in your tracks just as it’s your turn to meet the members of EXO and get their signatures. Your friend takes your hand and drags you up to the first member: Suho.
“Hi! What’s your name?” Suho brightly asks you.
“Y/n,” you shyly say and smile back. He quickly signs your photobook and a little message, “Nice to meet you Y/n, thanks for supporting us!” he gives you back your photobook. The more you interacted with the members, the more comfortable you got as you went down.
The last member was Chanyeol, and you couldn’t help but become giddy at the excitement of meeting him.
“Hello, can I have your name?” he asks in his deep voice. He asks as he picks up the pen he dropped on the floor.
“Y/n, Y/n L/n,” you introduce yourself, patiently waiting for him to sign your book. As soon as he gets his pen, he makes smiles widely, his eyes immediately attracted to your’s.
He maintains eye contact for quite a while, causing you to blush since none of the other members directly stared at you for over 3 seconds.
“You have a beautiful name Y/n,” he says, the smile still on his face. He’s somehow able to sign your book while holding eye contact. You bashfully break the tension by looking away, down at your feet.
You hear Chanyeol sigh, “I can’t help but get lost into your eyes.” His smiles stretches wider. Your eyes dart back up to his as the hue of your blush darkens. You can’t help but widely smile because of how contagious his happiness is.
Chanyeol seems very proud of the effect he has on you and leans back in his chair, crossing his arms.
You’re becoming shyer by the second, slowly pulling your book away. You smile is starting to hurt your cheeks.
“You’re so pretty when you smile, too,” he persistently continues. “Wait! I’m not done signing, I’ll stop bothering you after.” he chuckles, signing more in your photobook and handing it to you himself after.
You tightly hold the book against your chest, your heart beating fast, as you approach your friend waiting by the exit.
“What’s with the smile Y/n?” your friend Zoë questions you, nudging you teasingly.
You open your photobook to see what Chanyeol wrote that took him so long.
imagine jeonghan hearing that you’re trying to relearn your native language so he downloads duolingo and learns with you, too. he manages to grasp the grammar a lot faster than you can, but you have a better vocabulary
the post is a gross oversimplification of a complex issue written to be as polarising and demonising as possible and it makes my trans self very very very upset. Genderbends are not in fact inherently transphobic and I also really hate the tone of the post implying somehow that if we make the character trans that makes them somehow better or more interesting. There’s nothing wrong with keeping cis characters cis while exploring them as another gender. There’s really not. If you want to write trans characters then just DO IT!!! WRITE TRANS CHARACTERS!!! It’s entirely possible for genderbends to be done in such a way that is bad and transphobic sure, but it’s also possible to do them in ways that aren’t that at all, and there are plenty of trans people, such as myself, who enjoy and write genderbends, and I also know trans people who write genderbends as a coping mechanism. So maybe consider finding some chill, my dudes.
