I think I need an intervention…I’m addicted to SanSan fan fiction and specifically to Sandor Clegane! Sweet, smutty, fluff, it doesn’t matter because I’m reading it! Some of my favorite authors are Littlefeather, LadyTP, Maroucia, AdultOrphan, SassyEggs, Starbird1, SnowWhiteKnight, redcandle17, Nosow, winterwasp, the_moonmoth. A big thank you to such wonderful writers of fan fiction!
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
Being an Avenger means continuing to be Captain America and smiling and being honorable for the public and Harry does his best. But it doesn’t give him time to figure out who he is supposed to be once he takes off his uniform and puts the shield to the side. Just being Harry had always involved Louis, and Harry fears he doesn’t know how to exist without him.
or: Harry is Captain America, and Louis’ been dead for 70 years.
But when it came right down to it, the skin of my wrist looked so white and defensless that I couldn’t do it. It was as if what I wanted to kill wasn’t in that skin or the thin blue pulse that jumped under my thumb, but somewhere else, deeper, more secret, and a whole lot harder to get.
Heads up! In January, a new yuri anime called Yuri Kuma Arashi is coming out! You might know the artist of the original manga, Akiko Morishima, from her other works such as Hanjuku Joshi, Romance Girls File, The Conditions for Paradise, and Holy Girl Paradigm. Look forward to it!
Well I have no freaking clue what I did to deserve the hardest question in the history of ever today but fuuuuck, man. Okay, well, the Steter one jumped right to mind because it just straight-up has no other contender out there. Nothing’s so much as brushed up against the pure, brilliant fantabulousness that is:
This is actually the first Sterek fic I ever read. Which means I’m either horribly biased in favor of it because I could not have imagined a better introduction to this fandom or it actually is the best Sterek fic I’ve ever read. It has all the perfect highs and lows and characterizations in a totally AU setting, plus extra special bonus: beautiful, engaging writing!
theroguesgambit / @halekingsourwolf has scenarios that speak STRAIGHT TO MY SOUL, like, they make me aaaaache inside with how perfect they are for me. They’re exact and to a ‘T’ what I want to read. We have a wave-length; they don’t know it, but we do. Because we’re angst-twins and I have never been angst-twins with anyone sooo courtesy apology for how weird and intense and stalkery I am about you, stranger [bright-eyed deranged grins].

it’s really amazing how much of my personality and personal philosophy comes from terry pratchett’s writing
like, i discovered the discworld series at the exact right time in my life and emotional development to be profoundly affected by them and i honestly think i’m a better person for it
that’s the power of good writing, nearly subversive in its complexity and depth: without having ever met me, terry pratchett changed me for the better, showed me how to believe in people and set aside bitterness, as well as how powerful (and difficult, yet rewarding) optimism is as a philosophy
and as a life choice, that optimism and naivety are not the same thing, you can be realistic about humans and their nature and still choose to see the best in them and believe that they can be better, that there’s no gray, “just white that’s got grubby” – that without any greater purpose in the universe, any inherent natural order or justice, we have the power to make those things be, to shape the future, that “here and now, we are alive” and just. just.
terry pratchett, guys.
terry pratchett taught me how to have faith in humanity and find my place in it, and i never got the chance to shake his hand and thank him for that
