Jily Fanfic Recommendations

So I haven’t made a Jily rec post in about 2 years, but I have started reading them a lot again, so here are some recent reads/favourites:

Title: So This Is Love
Author: petalstofish
Summary:  James accidentally calls Lily Evans, Lily Potter, while arguing.

Title: Sunshine in My Eyes
Author: monroeslittle
Summary:  Mr. and Mrs. Evans are killed when Lily’s only a girl, and she’s supposed to go to a home with her sister. Instead, a relative they didn’t know they had comes to collect them, and introduces Lily to manners, magic, and a life that’s just the slightest bit different from the life she was supposed to live.

Title: The Shortest Order
Author: fyeahjamesandlily
Summary: Pretending to be in love with James Potter would be hard for Lily Evans… except for the small fact that she’s pretty certain she’s been in love with him since sixth year anyway.  

Title: Pepper Up, Peppermint
Author: fyeahjamesandlily
Summary: The jolly chime of the doorbell cut through Lily’s medicine-induced fog, rousing her. Even after the last echoes died away, she made no move from her nest on the sofa. She was closest to the door, sure, but she was also closest to death.

Title: Pas De Deux
Author: petalstofish

Title: Untitled

Summary: It started with the goodbye of their sixth year. This is what Lily knows to be true.It was the first goodbye they had said as friends. Not as enemies, not as a potential couple, just as friends…

JG’s Everlark AU Fic Recs (1/2)

Following #ficreddays, here are my Everlark fic recs for stories set in a historical or modern alternate universe. These are my all time faves because I love Civil War era sagas, class/age gap/reunion/forbidden romances, crossovers galore–and everything in between. I’ve also been reading for nearly five years, so my lists reflect that history.  

Each of these stories stayed with me with happy thoughts or anguished tears because there wasn’t more! All of the kudos to these brilliant writers, thank you for sharing your talents with us!

Creation of the Modern AU tag. Created April 21, 2017. Number of Recs: 5

Oblivious by shortystylee | R:G | W:6K+ | 3/3

A five plus one story. Five people who noticed Gendry and Arya’s relationship before Arya, and then finally when Arya did. 

hope will put the colors in the sky by monroeslittle | R:M | W:16K+ | 1/1

“The story she fed her parents about spending the night with Shireen, the twenty pounds on cab fare into town, and the incessant whining from Micah were all totally worth it. This is going to be the best night ever.” modern AU.

I am another sucker for monroeslittle's fics, and you sound like you're a friend of hers so if you link me to her fics and drabbles on AO3 and Tumblr (if that's okay of course) I'll be indescribably grateful. And for god's sake Jessa, UPDATE! We want more!!!!! thank you :)

Hey there! I knowww, it’s been forever and a day since I’ve updated or written anything. I hope to change that soon, I’ve just been focused on originals lately and even that’s taken a backseat to real life (damn day job). 

But anyway, here’s the links to Maggie’s stuff:

Chapters: 80
Word Count: ~
Summary: “Love wasn’t the way you felt as you looked at someone. The stirring in your stomach. It was the complete willingness to throw yourself in front of a knife to save them. And it was having the nerve to accept this, because you’d rather die a thousand times than to see them get hurt.“ A Soul Bonded Hinny fanfiction. Jily lived too. Romione at a slightly younger age, more pronounced than in the books at least. I do not own Harry Potter, JK Rowling does. Harry James Potter was always a different boy. Whether because he was a marked man, or because of his family, he never realized just how strange he was. That is until the Bond started to grow.

I just hit my next thousand (whee) so to celebrate, I thought I’d show my appreciation for the amazing writers of the bellarke fandom by compiling a list of my all-time favourite bellarke fics! Hope y’all enjoy, x. 

Like Ships In The Night (Passing Me By) by viansian [11k, one-shot, immortal au, historical au,]

This fic gets a special place in my heart because it was the very first fic I read for bellarke and I fell in love with it immediately. Basic premise? Bellamy is an immortal and Clarke isn’t, and he meets her seven times throughout his life. It’s heart-breaking and poignant and the characters are written with so much thought. (With an happy ending, to boot.)

First Impressions Often Lie by @antebellamy [9k, multi-chapter, completed modern au, boarding school au, enemies to friends to lovers] 

Listen, this fic is amazing. Mia writes like magic; it’s nostalgic and sweet and angsty all at once, and there are some lines in here that just make me shiver and cry and have a lot of feelings, okay. Overall, it’s engaging and fun and will stick with you for days after.

loudman1  asked:

Happy Friday! Do you know what the most read Hunger Games story is?

That is difficult to know accurately.  Here is my best guess based on the number of reviews, number of favorites and number of follows on ff.net and based on number of hits, number of comments, number of kudos and number of bookmarks on AO3.  Keep in mind that the more chapters a fic has, the potential for more reviews and comments, especially if readers leave comments on every chapter.  So it is not an exact science but still gives you an idea of the popularity of a fic.  Also, I filtered for fics that appear to be primarily Everlark fics.

Welcome to my fan fic rec master post! I have worked for an exceptionally long time to get this together, and the following fan fictions are my favourites from the The 100 writers of this fandom! There were loads and loads to choose from, so it was really hard to narrow them down to this amount. There are about 30 fics here, and are 97% Bellarke, but there are other pairings scattered about: Minty, Wellvan, Clarphy and Bravenlarke being the ones with their own fics.

Take a look and see if there’s a fic for you! They’re organised by genre, and some even have little comments to show you how I felt about them! I have tried to link the authors to their tumblrs, too, but if you spot your fic, or someone else’s, that isn’t linked, just give me a shout and I can fix it! Thanks for reading!

(Each tumblr user is tagged by their fic, if you’re tagged more than once it’s because you have more than one fic here!)

Your Mess Is Mine by monroeslittle @argyledpenguin

Bellarke | 42k

Summary: They left soon after, deciding they needed drinks to celebrate Clarke’s new, awesome ability to hit a ball with a bat. But before they went, Clarke threw an arm around Bellamy’s shoulders, forcing him to duck a little so that she could press her check to his, and snap a picture. She put it up on Instagram, labeling it suck it, Octavia! Octavia liked the photo about eight seconds later.

“I’m glad she’s hard at work,” Bellamy said.

On the T, Clarke made it the background on her phone. It was a really good photo.

modern AU, Clarke grows up with Octavia, and Octavia’s brother.

Comments: Okay, so this was the first ever fan fic I ever read? And I didn’t stop, just kept reading until two in the morning, and this was the fic that sent me down the rabbit hole. I would be angry, but the rabbit hole is absolutely awesome.

Hey! I have kind of a vague request (that I really hope doesn't sound mean). I'm hoping you could recommend the most quality fics you've ever read, or a few exceptionally talented authors. Bcdaily and monroeslittle come to mind. Do you know of any that are on their caliber of writing? Much love and thanks! :)

anonymous asked:

curious, what does your pen name (monroeslittle) mean? have been reading your work throughout the years, from Jily to Bellarke -- your writing is so wonderful!

Hi, anon! It’s kind of a boring story actually. Basically, my sister was called “Monroe” in college for reasons, and when I would go to visit her, all of her friends affectionately called me “Monroe’s Little.” I adored my sister (still do!) and was proud of being her “little”, so I used that for a name when I created a LiveJournal many, many years ago. That’s it! Anyway, I’m glad you like my writing! Sorry it’s taken me such a long time to respond to this; I’m on a semi-hiatus of sorts from tumblr. :)

anonymous asked:

Hey, I've seen you talk a lot about TLAT but have you ever read Commentarius? Would you do a list of your favourite jily fanfics?

i do talk a lot about tlat because… well i love it and it’s unfinished it’s so frustrating! and i’ve read it twice when i only read commentarius once but gosh i love commentarius too!

tbh they’re not my favorite fics, but they’re like a monument you know?

here’s a short list of my fav jily fics (no order because im incapable of doing this):

i aslo read a ton of drabbles on tumblr so i cant remember everything but here’s so authors i like! so check the wirters other works and check these ones too:

OMG OMG OMG!!!! I just read my first monroeslittle's the 100 fic (The Love You Bring) and OH MY GAWWWD!!! In a way it feels like I just lost my the-100-fandom virginity and I kinda want to die already but I gotta read the rest of her stories first...

Maggie slays at everything she has ever written, no matter the ship. Her 100 fics are by far the best I’ve read of that entire fandom and the tragic part is once you’re done with hers, it’s like where do you even go from there.

Really, truly, the best Bellarke fanfiction out there.

Well, according to me. Many of the below contain adult scenes, so proceed with caution. I give the rating listed by each separate site’s rating scheme, so as usual, AO3′s “M” may not be equivalent to fanfiction.net’s “M,” and anything posted to Tumblr is listed as unrated unless given an official rating by the author.

anonymous asked:

Any multichaps that have been completed relatively recently? Or WIP's/abandoned works that end happily? I usually don't read those because I can't stand cliffhangers, so I'd prefer if they were mostly resolved. Ignore this if it's too much work, thanks!

These are all complete and tend to end on some sort of happy note (we also have a tag with completed fics). These all stick to the magic universe but some are AU timelines etc.:

anonymous asked:

hey, do you know of any HP "if everyone had lived" AUs? like, lily and James raising Harry?

You came to the right place friend because this is my favorite trope. All kinds of fics and headcanons live here in my if they lived tag. I’ve written a series of if they lived drabbles (the flip side) but I have tons of recs to share!

misc lists/fics:

au fics where survival isn’t the central theme

thesnowyangelwriter  asked:

There's a fic I read a while back that was an AU depicting what would have happened if Katniss and Peeta grew up in every district other than 12. Do you guys know which fic that is? BTW thanks so much for what you guys do here! I've discovered so many hidden gems thanks to ya'll!

Hi,

That sounds a lot like Shine On My Name by dracoisalooker76 (Katniss and Peeta are from Districts 1-11, and 13)

It could also be My Kingdom Come by monroeslittle (thanks @icbiwf !)
