I’m honestly crying do you guys even SEE how ridiculous this is? BTS got TWO ROOFHITS and an ALLKILL and suddenly Melon wants to change their entire system?? Meanwhile BIG BANG has THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN ROOFHITS and Melon didn’t care???
The Big 3 are not trying to sabotage BTS you guys need yo get your heads out of your asses tbvh it’s embarrassing at the point, YG, SM, and JYP have better things to do than go after a single boy group. Hello?? SM has SNSD, EXO, TVXQ, SHINEE, SJ, ETC– Taeyeon ALONE creates more roofhits than all of BTS’ releases combined. JYP has TWICE, whose had Perfect Allkill after Perfect Allkill. YG has Big Bang, Winner, and Ikon + newly added Black Pink all who have done great digitally. AKMU alone EXCEEDS all roofits you an think of. For the last time, melon changing their system is because they no longer want fans to manipulate their charts by spamming, creating fake accounts, and streaming with playlists, using bots, and buying streams etc. They have to preserve their reputability.
Same with Youtube. You really think youtube wouldn’t notice that 800 K OUT OF A MILLION COMMENTS and THIRTY MILLION VIEWS were SPAM, yes SPAM, a result of using bots, buying views, mass streaming and methods of inflation which Youtube does not allow for ANY artists on youtube. Inflated numbers and records aren’t something to take pride in because at the end of the day the system WILL recognize that someone is manipulating stats, and they WILL fix it. That’;s what happened here and it’s just the normal way to do things. No one actually gives that much of a shit to feel the need to constantly be out to get you– it’s just how the world works and the sooner some of you realize this the sooner you’ll save the rest of us from this embarrassing delusional mess.
By now you all know how I feel about solohux and how much I love everything they write. Established relationship future fic in which Kylo loses his memory and forgets his marriage to Hux. This is only just getting started and it’s already made me cry twice.
Oh man this is perfect. It’s techienician with a perfect blend of heart-wrenching emotion and soft loving moments. Matt’s characterisation is one of the most interesting interpretations that I’ve read.
This fic is beautiful. Kylo is a street musician in Prague and Hux is touring with an orchestra. I adore the characterisation of this, and it makes me want to hop on a plane to Prague right now. (I googled it, it would only cost me about £50. Does anyone wanna come to Prague?)
Wilford I... man can I just give you a hug, you've been through so much bud, here have some cotton candy and bubbles. (Reverse I swear you've made me cry twice today why is everything sad)
(*hides* Sorry, cutie pie! Just happens sometimes!)
Wilford takes the gifts from you and sets them aside so he can give you a hug. “Thank you,” he mumbles as he rests his head on your shoulder for a bit before backing away with a blush on his cheeks. “Sorry about that.”
Hi! Hello! I thought this might be the best way to show love for my fellow fan fiction writers in the ML community on this the day of appreciation for such folks. I’ve posted about the majority of these authors before in a blog rec list, but I want to put out a formal review of each author and their fics because reviews are important. There are so many fic rec lists out already, but writer types NEVER tire of attention (trust me, I know) so here we go (in alphabetical order to keep things classy and neat):
A lovely university AU. I love the way she writes Adrien and Marinette’s rekindled friendship, it’s just so warm and comforting. There is drama and fluff and romance and it’s just such lovely story. Also, her description of high fashion clothing is just #writing goals 100%.
An exciting expanded magical world AU. This world that Thorn has created is just so rich and detailed and could easily stand on its own entirely. Adrien, Marinette and the whole crew drop so easily right into the middle of it and meld perfectly. Her OCs are beautifully developed characters and stand wonderfully on their own two feet, I could honestly read a whole book just following them. It’s full of action, angst, hilarity and Sin™.
An adorable art school AU where Adrien ends up as a nude model in Mari’s figure drawing class. Need I say more? Hilarity and adorable drawing sessions and art lessons ensue. This fic is pure and unaltered cotton candy and Reyxa does a wonderful job spinning it while throwing some Sin™ on top for good measure.
An extremely accurate theatre AU. The first, but not the only, Bully fic on the list. (Honestly I had to stop myself from putting them all down.) This short and sweet fic is hilarious and if you were/are a Theatre kid you will appreciate ever inch of it. Bully will capture you every time with her tongue –in-cheek humor and spot on characterization and this little fic is no exception.
A perfectly done Project Runway AU. Bee just does an absolutely phenomenal job translating the classic reality competition TV show format into the written word which is no small task. One of the things that impressed me most about this writing is that I could visualize every single scene perfectly. It is clearly and beautifully written and honestly made me fall deeper in love with the cast of ML.
The beginning of the end for me and ML fics. This fic took my ML fic virginity and I have never looked back. If there is one thing Taylor knows how to write its Sin™ and luckily for us she knows how to write more than that. I love, love Taylor’s descriptions of actions and the thoughts and feelings of characters while they’re in the middle of those actions. (I also have this fic to thank for plunging me into the depths of Taylor’s OC heaven. Seriously, the girl has an armory full of AMAZING OCs, go check them out.)
An exquisite tattoo/soul mate/flower shop AU. I just…I will never be able to stop talking about Matchaball’s writing. Her prose reads like poetry and in some spots like a song. It has rhythm and grace and leads you slowly and easily through the world she’s creating. It can be a hard feat to find an author who not only writes beautifully but also has the world building, plotting and characterizing skills. Matchaball has all of these and more. Reading her writing is just so lovely and relaxing. I just cannot get enough.
I think technically this would be a mating cycle AU? It doesn’t matter because it’s FANTASTIC and I am just so pumped to see where it goes. Written by the fantastic Kay, how could you go wrong? I will expand more on how much I love Kay’s writing in a bit, but I’ll just say I’m so pumped to see her write some sexier things because I know it will be done RIGHT. Jump on this train, it’s going places.
If you’d like to see Adrien embarrassed and stuttering for once, this is the fic for you. I cannot even begin with the level of cheese that Kay has going on in this fic, but it is just an amazing amount. If you’re lactose intolerant steer clear. This is a purely fun, purely hilarious fic and its just so much fun. If you need to smile, this is the place you need to be.
This fic is so hilarious it altered my state of mind and caused me to write the most ridiculous and off topic comments on each and every chapter. It got so bad that the author was forced to message me to ask me to stop. Then he followed me on Tumblr just to make sure I would leave him alone. He messages me occasionally to make sure I’m not going to comment on his fic again. Jokes on him. We live in a free country and I CAN DO WHAT—
Okay, here’s what I have to say for real. Anyone can pop open a word doc and start writing a shit post meme fic and throw it up on AO3 and call it a day. But it takes a true writer to do it WELL. Humor does not come easily and written humor is often times one of the hardest forms to nail. Phil nails it (HEH HEH) perfectly. His comedic timing is spot on and the sheer amount of pop culture references are just staggering and I’m sure I’ve missed about half of them. On top of that he stays true to character while exploring edges we’ve not seen (and definitely WILL NOT see) in the show. Okay, now I’m done.
An extremely delicious, definitely NSFW BDSM/friends with benefits/fake dating AU. This fic is just so much more than it’s AU. It goes so far beyond its BDSM theme and I was just not prepared for it when I dived in. What you might think you’re getting: crazy kinky sex everywhere all the time – What you’re actually getting: deep and meaningful character development, ANGST, FLUFF, lessons on safe and healthy sexual relationships, lessons on safe and healthy relationships in general, lessons on how NOT to pretend like you’re not in love with your partner. And all of it extremely well written. If you are not an Innocent Child you must go read this. It will save your soul and send it to hell in one fell swoop.
*DEEP BREATH* I am still not and never will be over this fic or Kay’s writing. It just cannot be done. Kay’s understanding of these characters and their world is so insanely in depth its mind boggling. She handles each and every one of them with such love that it takes my breath away. Nothing is done without out a cause and effect and everything is woven into an intricate web. I sometimes get so profoundly sad that this is not cannon because it’s just so authentic and accurate. I know I can’t really say that because we don’t know what will be “cannon” or authentic or accurate, but it just is. If you’re not reading SF or planning on reading it, you’re doing yourself a terrible disservice.
DOUBLE. FAKE. DATING. AU. Holy hell, how Sadrien even got through the fic summary without getting vertigo I have no clue. This fic delivers something that I think the fandom required. A fake dating square to walk hand in hand with our love square. It’s still early on, but I can already tell it will be filled with a bunch of hilarious situations and shenanigans. I’m just so excited and you should be too!
Who else but Bully would/could deliver unto us a beautifully written…Sugar Daddy AU? Just the mere fact that she fully has me believing this could really happen between Adrien and Marinette is the achievement of the year. This fic is in the early stages, but has such a promising beginning and will surely be a hilarious ride.
Oh man. The infamous TLATB. So, this is the third Bully Fic™ on my list and I could talk about how it’s the flagship sin fic and all that, but I’m not. I want to talk about how much I love Bully’s writing and how great of a writer she is, really, truly. As I said in my little blurb about Porte-Boner, humor is a truly hard thing to write and get across the right way. Bully does this flawlessly, every. single. time. But there’s more than that, when TLATB started to take an unplanned off-road detour to angst-ville, Bully managed to keep her readers right with her. Folks, that is an extremely hard thing to do, to keep your readers with you, no matter what crazy shit you do. To keep them believing and to not jolt them out of the narrative. That’s the main job of the writer, to kidnap their readers and keep the believing all the way through to the last page. Bully, you’re a great writer, I know you’re having a rough and unpleasant time right now, but keep your chin up. You’re great.
The premise of this fic is just so undeniably adorable and everything that follows is undeniably adorable as well. I just love how Sophie writes the dynamic between Chat and Mari. It’s so true to their characters and so adorable. HAVE I SAID ADORABLE ENOUGH. I’ve actually probably said it too many times for the amount of sin happening (and will be happening) in this fic. Sophie captures my attention with lovely turns of phrase she uses and wonderful character interactions. It’s such a great read and you should GO READ IT NOW. Also because Sophie is a sweet little dumpling.
Okay. So, um…it’s like really hard to get me to actually cry, like blubbering tears and unattractive hiccups crying, during movies/shows/books. I can count on one hand the amount of times a book or movie or show has made me cry. You Don’t Know Me has DESTROYED me. TWICE. While reading it. If you’re ready for a soul-crushing amount of angst Ferisae is your dealer. She delves deep, deep into Adrien’s character and pulls out everything that is sad and lonely and uses it to crush you in the best way. Even if you’re someone who actively avoids angsty fics (like me) you absolutely must give yourself the chance to read this. Just make sure you have a nice warm cup of something hot and a blanky and maybe some baby animal photos open in the next tab over.
Okay this got super long, whoops. Sorry not sorry because all these author’s deserve all the love.
Thank you to each and every one of these lovely people and every fic author out there. Y’all are truly amazing for the amount of time, work and love you put into your writing. It shows a true passion and even if writing isn’t what you want to do with your life full time, the passion you have can easily be transferred to any aspect of your life. Passion is fuel to live and live happily. Thank you for sharing your passion with us.
I pull open the heavy Starbucks door, the smell of coffee and hum of the chit chat fill my senses. I wait in the line, staring at my feet like they are the most interesting things in the entire world. My body involuntarily moving with the line until I look up to face the cashier.
“Y/N my goodness, no offence but babe, you look terrible!” Gabby was right, I had locked myself away for a week after Jason had left me for the girl he had been cheating on me with. I had puffy, red eyes from crying and the bags under my eyes made me look twice my age. I was a total wreck.
“Do you want your usual?” She asks me softly, like I could break at any moment, like I haven’t already been broken to bits. “Yes please, but could you give me extra sprinkles please Gab?” I wince at how weak I sound. “Of course sweetheart!” She punches in my order and I pay, shoving the change in my hoodie pocket. I go sit down at the bar placed beside the baristas, the last thing I want is to be beside the huge windows that just display how horrible I feel and look.
As I’m waiting for my order my fingers make their way to scroll through pictures of Jason and I, tears well up in my eyes but I hold them back, I will NOT be that girl who cries in public. “You better not be looking at pictures of him Y/N!” Gabby scolded, she knew me too well.
“Hey, um, are you okay?” I hear a deep voice speak from behind me. I look towards it and find two gorgeous boys, they had jawlines that could cut, beautiful hazel eyes, they were tall, basically gods. “Uh, yeah, I’m fine” I nod while looking down, tucking a piece of hair behind my ear as a pink blush hits my cheeks. “Really because from what your friend behind the counter says, you’re not ‘fine’.” He motions air quotes when he says the word fine. I sigh “Ya know, he won’t let up until he sees you happy.” The guy behind him pipes up, someone who I’m assuming is his twin. “I guess since you want to know, I recently got dumped for someone who he was fucking behind my back.” I respond back, my voice dripping with sadness. Tears start to well up, he must have notice as he instinctively wraps me in a hug. At first, I was caught off guard, I blinked a few times, trying to understand the situation, after a few seconds I hugged back, rest my face against his chest. He released me and I wiped the tears from my eyes.
As I do this my attention catches something come through the door. It was them. Jason and that bitch he cheated on me with. Apparently the boys saw my state and looked over to them. “Is that them?” He turns to me, eyes locking with mine. I nod and he steps closer. “Trust me, okay?” He gently grips my hand and steps even closer to my body.
“Oh, hey Y/N, uh, who’s this?” His wretched, yet calmingly familiar voice rings through my ears. “I’m Ethan, her boyfriend. You’re her ex I assume?” The boy who’s name I know know is Ethan, spits his words at Jason.
Before Jason could answer, his new plaything speaks up. “Wait, wait, wait, you’re tell me that a girl like you-” she points to me with a look of disgust “got a guy like him?” She points to Ethan. “She did. Problem?” Ethan raised his eyebrow in annoyance, just as Jason was about to speak, the 3 of our orders got called. I smile at the smiley face and heart Gabby drew on my cup, I sip my drink and look at Jason, he had his jaw clenched. “Babe let’s go, I don’t feel like coffee anymore.”
With that Jason and his bimbo bitch left. Ethan slowly let go of my hand as his twin spoke up “Well that was eventful, I’m Grayson by the way!” I smile and greet Grayson with a hello and my name. “Hey um, can I see you’re phone for a minute?” I look over at Ethan who was still, quite close to me. “Sure, what for?” I hand my phone to the boy. “Well, we gotta keep up the act if we want it to be believable, don’t we?” He winked and typed away on my phone, the grabbed his drink and motioned for Grayson to follow him. A minute later I received a text from him ‘I think you have a beautiful name btw’.

Lee Sung Kyung Explains Her Tears At Final “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” Filming
The actress stated, “I couldn’t watch the last episode because I was crying. Watching the drama when it aired, I sobbed because I was so sad it was ending. When we were nearing the end of filming the last episode, the director kept saying things like, ‘We have two cuts left,’ and ‘This is going to be our last scene,’ and that made me cry again.”
She smiled as she added, “I’ve cried twice working on a drama, and it was this one and ‘It’s Okay, That’s Love.’ Both were dramas meant to be healing for viewers. Usually, I’m pretty calm and able to keep the tears in, but I cried so much at yesterday’s wrap-up session. When I woke up, my eyes looked like sausages. It looked like when Bok Joo had a pimple.”
