Bad Dreams Keep Haunting You

*Remus is now fully conscious, He starts looking around the room looking for Sirius*

*Remus goes and looks around the house, he finally enters the lounge room*

Sirius: Yeah, Hey Moony. Couldn’t sleep

Remus: Can I sit?

Sirius: yeah sure

Remus: When you’re ready to talk, I am right here. I know you still have nightmares. I hear you screaming in your sleep. About Azkaban. You may have lost everything, but you didn’t lose me.

((Sirius: @ask-themaraudersmap / @nymphali-dae ))

Hey there. A while ago you posted a fic rec post and said you might do one for original fic too. Just wondering if you're still planning on doing this as i'm curious as to what you like reading?

Hey there nonnie! I did say that didn’t I - my bad. Work and uni kind of got in the way. Anywhoo, how about a list now?

General fic

House Rules  by Jodi Picoult - A teenager with aspergers who is obsessed with forensic science. And then the police come knocking.  ‘ Jacob’s behaviors are hallmark Asperger’s, but they look a lot like guilt to the local police.’

Losing You  by Susan Lewis . There are so many stories interwoven into the tragedy that occurs the night Oliver accidentally runs Lauren over. Like the reason Oliver was even behind the wheel that night, despite the fact that he’d been drinking, in the misguided attempt to save his  mother from herself, the toxic relationship between his dad and alcoholic mother, and Lauren’s own relationship with her mother and the secrets she was keeping from her. All come to a head that night and are slowly and painfully peeled back, exposing harsh truths and the damage they can do to each other and the consequences of those actions.


I have a soft spot for  Barry Lyga ’s books, particularly the  I Hunt Killers series. This features the son of a serial killer over 3 books. Also, the audiobooks narrated by Charlie Thurston make it even better. He seriously nails ‘dear old dad’s voice perfectly. Think Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds, but younger and much more psychologically damaged.

Barry Lyga also wrote  Boy Toy . This is quite a taboo subject but very emotionally hitting. It’s about a young teen (17?) who finds out the woman he lost his virginity to when he was 12 - his teacher - is being released from prison early. The story flits between present day and when he was 12 and the following months/years. It was sometimes uncomfortable reading but refreshing to read from a male point of view.

Split by Swati Avasthi . This starts with Sixteen-Year-Old Jace Witherspoon arriving at his estranged brother Christian’s apartment after being beaten by his dad. They haven’t spoken in years. Christian has built his life up again after years of abuse and had hoped his younger brother escaped it. Of course, with Christian out of the way, Jace takes the brunt of it. After an incident with his dad and some unspecified event (that you learn about as the book develops) Jace arrives hoping to tentatively re-build his relationship with the brother who walked out on him. This book deals with domestic and child abuse.  Also fits perfectly into my love for protective brothers in books.

Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig . This was an interesting read with a mystery that keeps you turning the pages. The main protagonist’s ex-girlfriend has disappeared.  Nothing seems to make sense. As well as the mystery factor it’s also a story of self-discovery for the MC.  This is really a gem of a read. The only issue I had with it is the characters seem much older than they are depicted in the book, but that’s really only a slight issue.


Lisa Henry (aka @thisdiscontentedwinter ) and J.A. Rock have written some of my fave books. The above recs were more YA and these are definitely not:  The Good Boy  (and it’s sequel) is both an angsty and kinky read. Lane’s parents have been found guilty of fraud. His mother is in prison and his dad’s on the run. Lane - suspected of being involved and wholly innocent - has been left with nothing and ends up trusting the wrong person. Physically and emotionally hurt and traumatized, Lane is taken in by the one person he never thought would help - Derek, one of the victims of the fraud. It’s a dom and sub story, pupply play and some BDSM. This was one of my first forays into MM fic and remains one of my faves.

When All the World Sleeps is probably my third favourite of the pair. It features a guy who sleepwalks. And when he sleepwalks he kind of does some serious shit. Like setting fire to Kenny’s house. With Kenny inside. Now he’s back home after serving his time and lives in a cabin by himself where he chains himself to the bed so he doesn’t do anything stupid. Like kill someone. Too bad people wont leave him alone. Then there’s the cop who doesn’t believe him. Cue some sexual tension. Of course, after some retribution from the townsfolk leaves the MC unable to save himself, the cop can’t quite rightfully leave him alone and chained up at night. so he agrees to do it for him. And the more time they spend together the more they fall into each other’s lives. Dom and Sub.

Less kinky and much more lighthearted is the Playing the Fool series. I think I have recced this before. This is seriously one of my fave series. Henry is a con-artist who has witnessed a mob-hit in the middle of his own hustle. Mac is the FBI agent who is tasked with finding the errant witness. Need I say more? Well, I will because no matter how many times I read this series (3 of them) I end up cracking up every time. Henry is a hoot. Charming to everyone except Mac who he enjoys winding up. They’re a perfect pair. Kind of. 

Of course, it’s not all a laugh a minute. You can’t have a  Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock without a little angst thrown in. They sprinkle just enough  of Henry’s backstory throughout the series to explain some of the reasons he is the way he is without giving too much away. If any character is going to stay with you after you’ve finished reading, it’s going to be Henry.

Oh, and I suggest you read it with the audiobook too. I love Nick. J. Russo’s voice.

I still have plenty of the author’s other works yet to read in my kindle.

Five in a Bed series by  M.A. Blisher - this is polyamorous. Domestic Discipline. And Daddy kink. One of my guilty pleasures. But there is a backstory to Danny and heaps of psychological angst so it’s not just a pwp offering.

Shadow of the Templar  series by  M. Chandler . Jeremy Archer. Art Thief. Simon Drake. FBI. UST galore. Actually, there’s not a lot of sex in the series. A lot is fade to black scenes. And that’s what makes the series so great. It’s not pwp. It doesn’t need sex to make me want to read the series. There’s actual plot. Cases. Action. And the fact that Jeremy and Simon both circle in and out of each other’s orbits. There’s selfishness, there’s conflicts of interest. There’s feelings. There’s sacrifices. And really, with their backgrounds and history, Simon and Jeremy existed before they were even Simon and Jeremy. * excuse me while I immerse myself in their orbits *.

Although I am yet to read all of the series, I quite enjoy the Voices  series by  Sarah Masters  - psychic and detective. working together. smexy times. Enough said.

Old School Discipline  by  Misha Horne - if you are familiar with this author then you’ll know spanking will be involved. And I just love characters who have smart mouth’s and bratty characteristics.

I still have plenty, but I’ll keep those for a later date

Ich mag deine Theorien :3 hast du noch welche? Irgendwelche? Weil mein Herz aua:')

Meine Damen, meine Herren, darf ich vorstellen: ratz’ headcanon-archiv 

Anbei einige, von mir angeführten Theorien, die ich im Laufe der Zeit gesammelt habe. Sie besitzen kein Recht auf Vollständigkeit oder Wahrheitsgehalt, werden aber mit der Zeit sicherlich um einige Punkte ergänzt werden.

  • then vs. now: Diese Theorie bezieht sich auf die unten genannten Exempel. In letzter Zeit scheint Klaas eine Art Wandel zu durchleben. Viel häufiger kommen von ihm spitze Anspielungen, er sucht den Körperkontakt und und und. Dabei revidiert er vermehrt frühere Aussagen und verstrickt sich mehr und mehr in Widersprüche. Warum tut er das? Meine Antwort: Er ist sich in der letzten Zeit mehr und mehr bewusst geworden, dass er Jokos Nähe durchaus genießt. Als Kopfmensch hat er sich den Schädel vermutlich daran zerbrochen, wieso, weshalb, warum das nur so ist und scheint diese Tatsache jetzt akzeptiert zu haben, weswegen er selbst auch öfter die Initiative ergreift. 
    • “Wir sind keine Freunde” / “Wir verstehen uns privat nicht” vs. “Wir sind Freunde.” / “Er ist wie der Bruder den ich nie wollte.” 
    • “Fass mich nicht an” vs. Klaas fasst ihn ununterbrochen an
    • Joko macht eine versaute Anspielung, woraufhin Klaas den Kopf schüttelt, lacht oder gar nicht weiß, was er sagen soll vs. “Brillenträger onanieren länger” / “… Sexmachine.” 
  • “Wie sehr wir leuchten” hat Klaas für Joko geschrieben. Bei dieser Theorien wurden beispielhaft einige Verse extrahiert und interpretiert:
    • “… wir machen doch schon jetzt die selben Sachen” ~ selbsterklärend
    • “… du kennst jetzt meine Art zu schreiben” ~ bezogen auf Moderationen, Kurznachrichten, aber auch erste Songs?
    • “… manchmal glaube ich ich könnte durch deine Augen meine Hände sehen” ~ Jokos Merkmal ist definitiv seine Brille, hinzu kommt die Zuschreibung, er wäre der Bauchmensch, Klaas der Kopfmensch. Joko hat Abitur, Klaas hat eine Ausbildung gemacht = ist eher der Typ, der “was mit den Händen macht” (Symbolzuschreibung)
    • “… was muss noch passieren damit’s die ganze Welt bezeugt” ~ Warum die Nennung ‘Welt’, warum reicht nicht ‘jeder’? Welt = alle, jeder einzelne Mensch, jeder Kontinent, den sie durch Reisen für’s DudW bereist haben.
    • usw.
  • Ich bin dann mal Kult: Klaas hat die Lesung “seines” Buches abgebrochen, an der Stelle, als “sein erstes Mal” beschrieben werden sollte. Ihm war klar, dass es fiktiv ist, doch wieso wollte er partout nicht, dass darüber gesprochen wird? Ein paar Ideen:
    • sein erstes Mal war traumatisch
    • das fiktiv vorgetragene hatte einen wahren Kern (Erweiterung: Klaas hat dieses Detail Joko im Vertrauen erzählt, Joko hat es kaltschnäuzig weiterverbreitet) 
    • sein erstes Mal hatte er mit einer Frau, was ihm gezeigt hat, dass er eigentlich auf Männer steht. Aus Angst, dieses Thema in der Öffentlichkeit thematisieren zu müssen, brach er die Lesung ab.
  • Alabama gilt seit Jahren als Safeword und wird konsequent eingehalten, ohne Ausnahmen. Dazu gehört ein Mindestmaß an Kontrolle, selbst in den “lustigsten” Momenten einzusehen: Wenn dieses Wort fällt, ist Schluss. Safewörter sind bekannt von Praktiken des BDSM ~ muss ich noch mehr sagen?
  • Fight Club-Ende: Fight Club gilt als krasser Machofilm, der, wenn man ihn länger betrachtet, aber auch homoerotische Aspekte aufwirft (z.B. mit der Fragestellung “Kann wirklich eine Frau mein Leben bereichern?”) bzw. “Männlickeit und die geforderten Verhaltensweisen”. Joko und Klaas haben die Endszene, in der (im Original) Tyler und Marla händchenhaltend vor den Trümmern stehen, nachgestellt. Joko nimmt dabei den Part des Mannes ein, Klaas den der Frau, was gegensätzlich zu dem ist, was man erwarten würde, müsste man die beiden in diese gender-Schubladen stecken. Im Film sind Tyler und Marla ein Liebespaar und sterben gemeinsam. Bezieht man den Film-Plot genauso auf die Wirklichkeit, wie die Szenerie, lässt sich spekulieren, ob diese Szene als Outing gelten sollte und/oder sie beide den Weg durch’s Leben gemeinsam gehen wollen. funfact on top: Wie im Original läuft im Hintergrund “Where is my mind?” von Pixies, der Band. “pixies” ist aber auch „a derogatory slang-term for a gay man“ (Quelle: urbandictionary)
