THECLEXA FANFIC MASTER LIST

As you may (or may not) know, a few months ago I embarked on a journey to create a document for the Clexa fandom that would serve as a resource for those of you who enjoy reading fanfiction about our favorite lesbian warlord and bisexual space leader (and any AU personas they may take on…). Today, with much help along the way from the best co-captain and technology wizard ever  (@ayokidd), WE ARE EXCITED TO RELEASE THE FIRST DRAFT OF THIS DOCUMENT! (Containing over 600 completed fics!)

Please continue reading for the download link, as well as more information on how to use the document!

It’s a good thing you all love reading so much, because this post is quite long…but hopefully informative!.


Check out Clexarkives or keep reading to access The Clexa Fanfic Master List!!


What is the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Clexa Fanfic Master List is an on-going Microsoft Excel document that will eventually contain ALL completed Clexa and Lexark fanfiction - categorized, organized, hyperlinked, and listed all in one exportable document for your reading and fic-tracking pleasure! YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT…all 5,000+ fics (or whatever the final tally is!) will eventually be included! The document will be periodically updated and re-released as more fics are added to it over time. This will all be located on our blog @clexarkives, where you can find the frequently updated Master List and some other cool features.

How do I access the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

You need Microsoft Excel (or a program that opens Excel files) to access the document. You can download the document by clicking this link here. This link will take you to Google Drive where you can download the file and open it on your computer.

DO NOT view the document in Google Drive - the hyperlinks won’t work! YOU MUST DOWNLOAD AND OPEN THE DOCUMENT IN MICROSOFT EXCEL. We are also working on a Google Sheets version of the document for anyone unable to access the document through Excel or a similar program. Hang tight!

Once you download the document, save to your desktop and enjoy!

What fics are/will be included in the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Clexa Fanfic Master List will only include completed fics (it is simply impossible to keep updating such a large document with individual fic updates…we’ll leave that to the internet). We are, however, keeping track of current on-going fics and these will be added to the document as they are completed. Unfortunately, any fics that have been started but abandoned (author has no plans to finish or hasn’t updated for an extremely extended period of time) will not be included (unless they are one day completed) because I’m sorry but my heart can’t take that kind of investment and let down.

How is the Clexa Fanfic Master List organized?

The entire document functions as one large Excel workbook. There are four main sections, accessible from the Table of Contents:

1) Master List: contains a list of all the fics in the workbook, organized alphabetically by author
2) Canon: contains fics set in the canon universe, organized by ‘Season 2’, ‘Season 3’, and ‘Canon Divergent’
3) AU Categories: contains fics set in alternate universes, organized by specific categories (ie., ‘Enemies to Lovers’, ‘Teacher/student’, ‘Fake Dating’, etc.)
4) Smut: contains sexy time fics, organized by specific categories (ie., ‘Fluffy Smut’, “Strap On’, ‘3x07’, etc.)

How do I navigate the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The entire document is hyperlinked to make navigation as easy as possible. You can click through individual tabs if you so desire, but we HIGHLY SUGGEST using the hyperlinks to navigate through the workbook.

Navigating within a main section:

The Table of Contents contains four main sections, or pages (as described above). Clicking on each of these sections will bring you to the page set up for that specific section.

Example 1: If you click the “Canon” section from the Table of Contents, you will be directed to the “Canon” page where the “Canon” categories ‘Season 2’, ‘Season 3’, and ‘Canon Divergent’ are hyperlinked.

If you click on one of these three categories, let’s say ‘Season 2’, you will find a list of Clexa fics that take place during Season 2 of the show organized by Author, Title, Chapters, Word Count, Summary, and a link to the fic on AO3 where it was originally posted and made available by the author.

Example 2: If you click the “AU Categories” section from the Table of Contents, you will be directed to the “AU Categories” page where you will find a list of AU categories.

Let’s say that from the “AU Categories” page you’re interested in the ‘Fake Dating’ category. You simply click the ‘Fake Dating’ category, and now you have a list of ‘Fake Dating’ AU fics organized by Author, Title, Chapters, Word Count. Summary, and a link to the fic on AO3 where it was originally posted and made available by the author.

Same goes for the “Master List” and “Smut” sections as well.

Navigating between the main sections and throughout the document:

Each of the four sections has a hyperlink that will take you back to the Table of Contents in the upper left hand corner of the page.

Each individual category has two hyperlinks, both in the upper left hand corner of the page.

1) The “Table of Contents” hyperlink will, you guessed it, take you back to the Table of Contents.
2) The specific category hyperlink will take you back to the main section of whatever category you’re currently in. (For example: If you’re in the ‘Season 2’ category, clicking the “Canon” hyperlink will take you back to the “Canon” page. If you’re in the ‘Fake Dating’ AU category, clicking the “AU Categories” hyperlink will take you back to the “AU Categories” page.)

How do I know I am looking at the most recent version of the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Master List will be updated periodically as we add more fics and as more fics are completed. You can find the most recent version of the document by checking our @clexarkives blog! We will also keep an updated link to the master list in our individual Tumblr bios (@ayokidd & @swan-heda).

Isn’t the Clexa Fanfic Master List basically like AO3 and FF? Why create a separate document?

Yes and no. We’re hopeful that the Clexa Fanfic Master List will give you more control over your fic reading than using AO3 or your web browser alone. If you’re like me (really neurotic and anal), you might also hate having 1,000 bookmarks saved on A03 and your computer browser that you have to search through every time you’re looking for a specific fic, and you might desire a higher level of organization and control. This document will help bring fics right to your desktop. We will update with fics we find and any fics you send us, which delivers a “master list” of not only your personal bookmarks, but everyone else’s as well!

This document is intended to make searching for new fics to read and keeping track of fics you’ve already read as easy as possible. Using Excel functions like “search” make it possible to find any specific fic you may be looking for anywhere in the document, on a specific page, or in a specific category.

Once you download the Excel file, you can edit, change, and personalize the document however you’d like! You can highlight fics you’ve read, sort by chapter or word count, or color code or rank fics based on whatever system you want to create. You can even delete fics or fic categories that aren’t for you if you know you’ll never read them. The world is your oyster! (…or more so this doc is your oyster?…)

Can I make suggestions for the Clexa Fanfic Master List ?

ABSOLUTELY!!! We both love fanfiction. We both read A LOT of fanfiction. However, we are only two people, and there are likely many fics we have yet to include (this IS a first draft after all), so:

READERS: If your favorite fics aren’t listed and you’d like them to be, tell us and we’ll add them! (Please also tell us if you’d like to see a specific category added - if there are fics written that fit it, we’ll add it!)

AUTHORS: If your fics aren’t listed and you’d like them to be (there are A LOT of fics and chances are if it’s not included, we just didn’t get to yours yet!), please tell us and we’ll add them! If your fics ARE listed, but you don’t want them to be, please tell us and we’ll remove them! Also, let us know if you disagree with the category we placed your fic into and suggest a new one, and we’ll move it!

EVERYONE: PLEASE reach out to us with any questions, comments, concerns, suggestions, advice, love, dislike (polite, respectful dislike) etc. you have to offer! Please feel free to contact us in any way you feel comfortable, anonymously or not (reply to this post, message us, flood our ask boxes, send us submissions, etc.) We are both super friendly and would love some feedback! Tell us what you like, what you don’t like, what you’d like to see in future versions, etc. Any feedback you provide us with will only make the subsequent updated editions of the document even better. This is, after all, for each and every one of you.

Enjoy!

May We Meet Again,

Swan-Heda and Ayokidd

If you are an introvert or suffer from social anxiety I implore you to read/listen to Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. It is 400 pages of the heroine being terrified of social situations and triumphing in the end without having to change or come out of her shell. It drives me insane that  the only love MP gets on this site is some gifs of the Billie Piper adaptation where Fanny is “improved” and made less insipid and introverted.  There has never been a worthy adaptation of this book in my opinion, though there is a very excellent audio book read by Juliet Stevenson which I highly recommend. 

anonymous asked:

Blurb idea: you find harry watching his SNL musical performances by himself the next day being all critique-y with his brows all furrowed and his lips all pouty and you kiss all over his face telling him how amazing he was and how proud you are of him and fluff on top of fluff!!!

When you wake up he isn’t beside you. The hotel room is not too large though, so you it doesn’t take you long to find him.

He’s sitting at the table, hovered over a laptop. He has headphones so as not to wake you but you can see what he’s watching, and it makes you sigh. He’s watching his performance from Saturday Night Live. Again.

With a yawn, you roll out of bed and make your way over to him. He’s so focused, he doesn’t even notice you. You lean forward and wrap your arms around his shoulders. He jumps, a little harder than he’d intended, and rips the headphones out.

He softens as soon as he sees you. You giggle, leaning down to press a kiss to his lips. “Didn’t mean to scare you.”

“You didn’t,” he lies. “Did I wake you?”

“No.” You kiss his cheek again and nod to the laptop. “What’re you watching there?”

He sighs, tapping a button to pause the video. “M'just watching the performance.”

“Again?”

He chuckles. “Yeah. Again.”

“And?” You move to go plop yourself in his lap and he wraps his arms around you. “Did the song sound different this time?”

He scrunches his nose in response to your teasing. “No. Still sounded bad.”

You frown. “Hey. No it didn’t.”

He rests his cheek on your shoulder. “Yeah. Could’ve been louder. Could’ve done a lot of things differently.”

You groan and nudge his head so he looks at you. “You could’ve. But you didn’t. And it was still perfect.”

He smiles. “You’re perfect.”

“Shhh. Its not about me.”

With a little giggle and a squeeze, he kisses your shoulder. “No? Should be.”

You reach over to close his laptop and squirm a bit in your seat to face him. You push your forehead to his. “Stop being so hard on yourself.”

“Can’t.”

“Why not?!”

He sighs. “That’s like…. asking why humans can’t breathe underwater. S'just not possible.”

“It is if you have like… diving gear.”

“Mm. So I should get diving gear then.”

You laugh. “Yeah.”

“Oh excellent. Well that solves the problem then.”

You’re sharing soft little kisses through your giggle fits, and you reach up to play with his curls. “I’m serious, Harry. You’re perfect. Over analyzing everything is not going to change anything. It’s over. It was lovely. And the entire world thinks so, too. So stop it.”

He’s smiling at you as if he’s never been more in love with you. It takes him a moment before he speaks. “Did you know I love you?”

You can feel your cheeks reddening. “I love you too, Harry.”

Imagine an AU where Oikawa had bad eyesight and crooked teeth when he was still a kid, so he had to wear glasses and braces:
— at first Iwaizumi laughed at Oikawa and teased him about it, but stopped once he realized that he was genuinely hurt by that;
— Oikawa wasn’t popular at school, students bullied him for being clumsy and looking kinda nerdy;
— Iwaizumi always ended up fighting to protect Oikawa, kept getting beaten and always had lots of plasters on his body;
— Oikawa didn’t like being protected and constantly asked Iwa to stop standing up for him;
— Iwaizumi couldn’t stand when something or someone made his friend cried, so he only protected him even more fiercely;
— when smoll Tooru was sad, Iwaizumi had to give him his rare beetles. Naturally, Oikawa let them all go instantly, but the fact that they were precious to his friend warmed his heart;
— when Oikawa got into volleyball, Iwaizumi supported him wholeheartedly, so that his friend would do something apart from studying;
— volleyball turned Oikawa’s life upside down;
— his senpais and couches were really kind to him and praised him a lot, claiming that the boy had quite some potential. Oikawa gained all the support and love that lacked from his peers from them;
— of course Iwa wasn’t as thrilled, since he couldn’t learn as quickly and was scolded more often, but he still never left, because Oikawa stopped crying and became more decisive, more confident;
— when they got a little older, Tooru was always upset because the girls wouldn’t pay any attention to him;
— Iwaizumi thought it was stupid;
— when Oikawa got rid of the sorry braces and started using contacts instead of glasses, his peers started treating him better;
— thanks to volleyball Tooru was in excellent shape and he wasn’t a scrawny nerd anymore;
— not much longer after that he was surrounded by flocks of girls and always found time for them and treated them well too, convincing himself that everything was different now;
— volleyball has completely changed the life of little Tooru, and Iwaizumi never stopped supporting and protecting him, even though it might not always be obvious.

FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY TWO!!!  Four hundred and thirty two of you have decided to stick with me despite it all. I really don’t know what I’ve done to deserve all of you or why you’ve stuck with me, but I’m so grateful. I’m so grateful to be able to write one of my favorite characters with extraordinarily talented writers such as yourselves. It’s an honor, a blessing, and I couldn’t ask for a better group of followers. Some of you have now become close friends of mine who I don’t know what I would do without now. It’s crazy to think how lucky I am to have met you let alone write with you. Right now, things have been very tense within the fandom and we could all use a great bit of positivity–as a whole the human race needs some love. So with my bias list, I’m going to share some love because I feel that love from all of you and I want to share it.

Weekly Voltron Fic Recs #20

Rules: You can find past rec lists here. This is stuff I like, and I have a huge bias toward Lance, hurt/comfort, and general fluff, in that order. Gen unless otherwise noted. Please comment on the fics if you read and enjoy them!

I’m going to be busy this weekend with friend and family stuff, so I wanted to get this done tonight. I was going to try to make a separate list for the fics with spoilers, but there are just too many of them, so press J to skip this post if you haven’t finished Season 2 yet and don’t want to see major revelations about it.

This is a very long list. It’s been almost two weeks since the last one, and there’s been an explosion of fics with the new season. 

Here Stands a Man by awkwardCerberus
Words: 2,568 (WIP 1 / 4)
Author’s Summary: Following his disappearance after defeating Zarkon, Shiro is found floating through space and picked up by a Galran transport delivering a hold full of prisoners to a construction colony. Back at the Castle, the remains of Team Voltron are doing whatever they can to get Shiro back and trying hard not to fall apart in the process.
My Comments: Heartwrenching Post S2 fic where Shiro gets pulled back into basically his worst nighmare once again. Can’t wait for him to get rescued, please.

A Couple of Ticks by easternCriminal
Words: 1,533 (WIP 1/?)
Author’s Summary: After an unaccounted for variable does their best to assist Voltron during their final battle with Zarkon, Hunk and Lance wake up in the Galaxy Garrison… a few months before Shiro crash landed back on Earth.
My Comments: I am a sucker for time-travel AUs where a character comes back with knowledge of the future and tries to change the past. Plus this is my two faves, so you can understand why I’m excited about it. And they have a psychic connection, which is also fun. I’m really looking forward to more.

pull out your heart by valkyriered
Words: 1,965
Author’s Summary: After two weeks aboard a Galra ship, Shiro is rescued by his team.
My Comments: Really nice hurt/comfort focused on Shiro and Allura. I want Shiro to get all the hugs, please.

Spar Session by theoncomingwolf
Words: 3,025
Author’s Summary: In which Allura takes the training bot’s place as sparring opponent for the day. Set after s2, all paladins present.
My Comments: Really fun action fic in which Allura is a badass, but everyone gets a moment. It’s cool to see her leadership qualities come out and her reflections on the paladins’ skills.

Pause and Wait by the_authors_exploits
Words: 1,319
Author’s Summary: Keith and Shiro are stranded for the night, and Keith watches over Shiro while he gets some much needed rest
My Comments: Season 2 was great, but it sure seemed to skip over a lot of stuff we would have liked to see. This is a nice missing moment from Episode 1.

For Your Actions are Mine by wolfsan11
Words: 1,368
Author’s Summary: The Red Lion has awaited her Paladin for years, but the figure who fights to reach her is neither what she expects nor wants. Yet, after her imprisonment, perhaps this little one is simply what she needs.
My Comments: FANTASTIC Red pov. I love this view of her and her view of Keith. Lovely.

Insomnia by GriffinRose
Words: 15,278
Author’s Summary: They reunite after the Wormhole Incident all in one piece. Mostly. But some scars can’t be seen. Keith can’t sleep, no matter how hard he tries. Luckily he’s got the best team/family ever who are not about to let this go. No, seriously, they won’t let it go.
My Comments: Absolutely wonderful, subtle hurt/comfort and teamy goodness. What was really wrong and how to fix it was obvious to me early on, but it was fun to watch the team slowly figure it out.

Bromances in Space by ptw30
Words: 2,540 (WIP 4/?)
Author’s Summary: Various drabbles for Voltron: Legendary Defender - mainly Keith and Shiro Story One: Hug It Out (Episode Nine - The Belly of Weblum)
Story Two: Castle in the Sky (after Episode Thirteen - Blackout)
Story Three: How Shiro Became a Dad (Domestic AU)
Story Four: Dad Duties (Domestic AU)
My Comments: Each chapter is a separate story. The first two have S2 spoilers, but the others are just fluff. They’re all excellent.

Okay I can’t just go to bed with Season 2 ending like that I mean really… by Rangergirl3 for 4_angsty_zukos, PrincessMnMz, Zenthisoror
Words: 3,590
Author’s Summary: Literally what I thought after binge watching the incredible, fantastic, and all around phenomenal S2.Goes without saying: Spoiler Alert for VLD Season 2 (especially the finale) Hell of a cliffhanger, and I couldn’t rest without writing something for it, because it’s going to be AWHILE before we know what happens. So, here you all are. I had to write this for myself because otherwise, I wasn’t getting to sleep. :-)
My Comments: What it says! I love reading all these fics and seeing the various ideas people have for what that Big Dumb Cliffhanger meant. No two so far that I’ve seen have been alike.

But a Scratch by manunulat
Words: 1,052
Author’s Summary: This is a brief vignette set after s2ep2. Some things can’t be fixed by healing pods.
My Comments: Would you like some Hunk and Lance being funny, loving bros, with just a touch of angst? I always like it. I like this one, too.

for every bird there is a stone by lacking
Words: 15,954 (4/?)
Author’s Summary: Shiro walks away from his confrontation with Haggar injured and shaken. After falling through the corrupted wormhole and finding himself stranded alongside Keith on a solitary planet, Shiro begins doubting his bond with the black lion and his place among the other paladins. As the team is reunited and his health continues to decline, Shiro is forced to confront parts of himself he thought were long buried, and everyone is left questioning just how far he’s willing to go in order to survive.
My Comments: This is excellent. Fantastic characterization and interaction, especially for Shiro and Keith. We can always use more post-wormhole fics when they’re this good.

your sacred stars won’t be guiding you by contagionangel
Words: 3,233
Author’s Summary: In one reality, a major change in long-past history means that, among other things, Shiro never crash-lands on Earth. Hunk still gets attached to the people he’ll end up going to space with. A story of friendship, alien coverup conspiracies, and starting to grow courage without noticing.
My Comments: I ADORE this. I love the Garrison Trio Plus, and all the ways things change and don’t change with their closer, more involved friendship here. And Hunk’s POV is perfect. I really want more, and the author has promised there will be some more. Like, a lot more, eventually. I am waiting with open hands.

The Core of Him by nightwalker for MusicalLuna
Words: 2,072
Author’s Summary: Shiro wasn’t afraid of doing what the Olkari king had done – he knew he’d choke on the words if he even tried.
My Comments: Absolutely amazing Shiro character study, his view of the team and how important they are and what they mean to him. The other paladins are all adorable and well-characterized too, of course. There were a couple of lines in here that made me breathless with their vivid imagery and strong emotion.

White Hallways by Fernandidilly_yo
Words: 3,159
Author’s Summary: (Set right after season 2 episode 13) Keith’s reaction to finding that the black lion it empty, and Shiro is gone.
My Comments: Utterly heartbreaking, but this also feels so necessary. Lance is a good kid.

Entanglement by story_monger
Words: 1,910
Author’s Summary: Pidge has a major revelation about the castle ship’s technology and absolutely has to tell someone about it. In which Hunk and Pidge yell at one another about quantum entanglement and Lance simultaneously is confused by and loves his uber nerdy friends.
My Comments: ADORABLE. The Garrison Trio is so, so good, in both happiness and grief.

Stating the Obvious by nightwalker
Words: 1,947
Author’s Summary: It occurred to Keith like a punch to the gut that they were talking about Allura now, Lance was going to try to talk about this.
My Comments: Another scene I really wanted in the show and didn’t get. Lance is a good kid.

Between by Silverkleptofox
Words: 2,086
Author’s Summary: Between the biggest revelation of his life and his whole world changing, there is no time for Keith to rest and recover. His teammates make sure he does anyway. Tag to Season 2 Episode 8.
My Comments: Almost unnecessarily detailed hurt/comfort based on canon injuries, haha. I love it.

Casserole by genericfanatic
Words: 1,922
Author’s Summary: After Shiro “dies” on the Kerberos mission, Keith is all alone. Some days are harder than others.
My Comments: This author really excels at sharp, almost harsh depictions of pain and grief that are so realistic that you can feel it yourself. So good.

Nought but Grief and Pain (for Promis’d Joy) by Hedgi
Words: 1,353
Author’s Summary: Keith has always been many things. Stupid has never been one of them. Impulsive, sure. Reckless, yes. Intense, quiet, alone—check, check, check. But not stupid. What’s the point in looking for another way, another plan, when all they need is another person on board Zarkon’s ship? Introspection reaction to “The Best laid Plans”
My Comments: Really painful Keith POV on a pivotal moment in the season. I was glad it ended the way it did.

Basic Chemistry by 15Strawberries
Words: 1,211
Author’s Summary: Hunk has some down time in between battles. He tries to make the most of it.
My Comments: The PERFECT Hunk. This is exactly how I see him. Adorable and beautiful.

Water Vaper and Earthquakes by boredomsMuse
Words:  3,445
Author’s Summary: Hunk is generally a chill guy, well not in the matter that he’s never scared or anything but in the sense that Lance has only ever seen the guy angry like once. Until Pidge gets hurt during an ambush, and Lance is really glad this isn’t the first time he’s seen Hunk angry or things might just have been a lot worse for the paladins of Voltron.
My Comments: Really cool magic AU. I’m a big fan of berserker Hunk, and the sense of history with Lance is really fascinating. I would read a lot more of this concept.

Just What You Want by BossToaster (ChaoticReactions)
Words: 3,265 (WIP 2/5)
Author’s Summary: 5 times Shiro got hugged by the team.Written pre-Season 2 but I think we need it more now. Also, nominally takes place in the Spectrum verse, but that only matters in chapter five. Updates Saturday and Wednesday.
My Comments: Yes good. All the hugs for Shiro. Hunk and Pidge so far, and they were both perfect and adorable and genuine and sweet and made me super happy.

The Melting Milky Way by BossToaster (ChaoticReactions)
Words: 1,827
Author’s Summary: Shiro returns, but he has questions. How well did the team manage while he was gone? He doesn’t get the answer he wanted.
My Comments: Perfect Finale tag. Just read it. I don’t want to spoil it.

the currents you create by theoddoodisnude
Words: 18,501
Author’s Summary: Some days, he woke up even more tired than he’d been when he’d gone to sleep, and willing his body to go through the motions was just—tough. Like wading through thigh-high water or running on soft sand that gave under the soles of his feet.
My Comments: Here’s my obligatory Klance hurt/comfort for the week. I think there’s always one. Anyway, this one is very good. Very realistic depiction of depression, and I liked how supportive everyone was, and how hard Lance tried to deal with everything even when he just wanted to give up. Also some wonderful Hunk and Lance and team bonding in there.

Knowledge or Death (And Ignorance is Bliss) by squirenonny
Words: 2,189
Author’s Summary: Keith tells the rest of the team what he learned in the Trials of Marmora. [Season Two spoilers! Set between “The Blade of Marmora” and “The Belly of the Weblum”]
My Comments: PERFECT missing scene from S2 that we really should have gotten, omg. Unless disproven later by canon, this is how it went for me. Headcanon accepted, stamped, cosigned, and engraved in stone.

Lion’s Call by Wolfie_Dragon
Words: 2,948
Author’s Summary: After nearly getting killed during battle, Lance is confined to a healing pod. However, he seems to disagree with the severity of the situation, especially when he senses a cry of pain. And it’s up to Keith to get him back to the infirmary. Angst/Whump oneshot. Written for the Whumpaween exchange on tumblr.
My Comments: Aww, ouch. This is painful and sweet at the same time. Keith is exasperated, but he does his best.

Silence is Golden by VelkynKarma for BossToaster (ChaoticReactions)
Words: 10,291
Author’s Summary: It’s just a sore throat. It’s really not that big a deal. But the rest of team Voltron doesn’t really see it that way—and Shiro’s taking a day off whether he likes it or not.
My Comments: Aww, everyone tries so hard. What a good team. ::pats them::

Dark Necessities by BossToaster (ChaoticReactions) for VelkynKarma
Words: 9,564
Author’s Summary: Sometimes, the choices are easy. This is not one of those times. Shiro knew what he was agreeing to when he became their leader. It doesn’t make those calls easier.
My Comments: This was a rough read, but it was really well done. Being a leader is hard. I liked the way they talked it out at the end, even if nothing felt fully resolved. It can’t with things like this, sometimes.

Wolfstar AU- Discotechque (cont)

The blare of the alarm bounced against his head like a million tiny hammers. He tried ignoring the intrusive sound, burying his head further into his pillow but to no avail. Growling in frustration, Sirius forced his eyes open, grabbed the moon-shaped clock and shut it off gently despite his urge to hurl it across the room.

The gnawing effects of a hangover began to hit Sirius and he promptly made up his mind to go back to bed. He had just drawn the blanket up to his chin when he froze. There was someone lying next to him.

In one swift motion, Sirius whipped off the covers and stifled a high pitched scream.

anonymous asked:

So I FINALLY caught up on LOT. What are your thoughts on Doomsday episode in respect to WHO & How the Green Arrow came to be in that reality. Rebecca & Tommy were alive & well...Did the Undertaking & Gambit never happen since Rebecca was impetus for it? Darhk's mask collection was creepy & heartbreaking & I loved seeing Felicity as last woman standing/fighting, but I just had so many questions on the time changes. My canon says Malcolm is intrensically involved with creation of GA. Thoughts?

All extremely excellent questions for which I have no answers. I sort of let LOT wash over me. But what I would LOVE is if you sent me your ideas of what you think happened because I am getting the sense you have some good ones. 

I loved Felicity’s scenes. Bad ass since always. Last woman standing. Hero in any timeline and on any show.

It just made me irrationally happy Tommy and Rebecca were alive. I know it was a living hell but TOMMY WAS IN IT SO HOW BAD COULD IT BE? Yeah I know. Pretty bad. 

This is a celebration of all black hair. Because if you want to keep it natural, that’s beautiful. If you want to relax it, that’s beautiful. If you want braid,twist, dread, weave, put on a wig, or just shave it all of (I mean I did). That. Is. Beautiful. Always. It goes excellently with your dark or medium or lighter skin. It helps to accentuate your stunning facial bone structure. It’s yours. Never change your hair for anyone: Not your partner Not your interviewer Not your boss Not your parents Not for the standard of beauty Change your hair only for you. Because you love yourself and you want to express your versatility. This has been an uninvited public service announcement.

distant masterpiece

“you’re so close but we’re so far away”

Confidence
The most visceral conviction and the most engaging soul
found their way into my life

despite my defects, my failings,
You make me confident I can stand
I can EXCEL
while I’m tangibly, lovingly assured
that I want to stand, excel with you

Never change.
You’re quintessentially lovable,
flawlessly loving
and I eschew my obsessive words and meter
to tell you
in the least poetic fashion
yet with palpable trust and certitude
that

I love you.

when I feel selfish or unneeded,
you remind me that I have it all.
No hopeless romantic here
I am
hopeful, faithful and in love

30 Day Disney Challenge

Day #9: Your Favorite Couple

Belle and Beast/Prince Adam, Beauty and the Beast

These two are goals okay? First of all, I love everything about these two characters. I’ve already told you about Belle on Day #2 and Beast is actually my 2nd favorite Disney prince. They’re relationship is just perfect. At first, they resent and almost hate each other. Beast still has very little hope that Belle could help break the spell, but he soon loses that little hope he had left. He says “she’ll never see him as anything but a monster”, but over time that comment changes. Belle sees his inner beauty, even though he has a beastly appearance. The same person she first saw as mean, coarse, and unrefined, she now sees as dear and kind. Beast falls in love with Belle and she later confesses her love for him, breaking is spell and transforming him back into a human again. I really love how these two are really the first Disney couple where their relationship took some time to form. They don’t jump right into the romance, and I really like that. Also, the movie is very clever about not telling how long they are together. You can obviously see the weather changes a few times in the movie, but it never comes flat out and says how long it took for them to fall in love. I thought that was an excellent choice that the filmmakers made with them. Also, this moment: 

This scene is hands-down one of my favorite movie scenes of all-time. The mood is perfect, the movement is perfect, the setting is perfect, the song is perfect, the animation is perfect. Everything in that scene is just perfect, just like the two characters it focuses on. Belle and Beast, just like that scene, are just perfect. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to call my favorite. Also this kiss:

Seriously, they are goals.

Steal It

Anonymous said:

Hey! Can you please do one where you’re a VS model and Andy’s your bf and he goes with the guys to one of the runway shows to support you? Thank you!

Just like the last VS related thing, I have absolutely no idea what goes on at these things, so I’m just going to make it up, just like I usually do when I don’t know what’s going on ^-^  ♥ -izzi

Also, I’m really sorry this took so long, Anon.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Gosh, I’m so nervous, Andy is out there, and so is his whole band.” You told your best friend as you fanned yourself to keep your makeup from running with the nervous sweat.

“Wow, you must really love this guy, I’ve never seen you this nervous before a show.” Laughed your best friend as she took you by the shoulders lovingly. “Now, we’ve got to get to the more pressing matters.” The blond said with a smile, “Is Ashley out there?”

You groaned. She’d made no secret of her desire for the man in the time that you’d been working together.

“Yeah, he is, are my wings okay?” You asked as you were called to get ready to go on.

“Beautiful, knock ‘em dead, sister.”

You laughed and then it was your turn. You walked out, portraying confidence that wasn’t entirely real. Your eyes locked with Andy’s and he gave you a reassuring smile before he started to wolf whistle and holler like he was prone to. It was completely inappropriate, but you laughed anyway, throwing him a wink before continuing down the catwalk. You could still hear him and his bandmates making a ruskus.

You smiled at them again on your way back and Andy gave you his signature smirk. You had to resist the urge to roll your eyes as you continued back down the catwalk.

“You were great.” Your best friend said before going out. You went and got out your phone because just as he had promised he was calling you as soon as you got off the catwalk.

“You looked amazing.” He chuckled.

“Thanks.” You said smiling, and earning a couple of dirty looks from the other girls.

“Tell (Y/B/F/N) she looks fucking hot.” Ashley said into the phone and you giggled.

“I’ll tell her you said that.” You assured him, knowing how pleased she’d probably be to hear that.

“Fucking sexy.” You heard Ashley mumble in the background, and you laughed.

“He’s literally eye-raping your friend, it’s actually really creepy.” Andy told you, and you smiled.

“I bet she’d loving it, she has a huge crush on him.”

“That’s the friend you were telling me about. Jeez babe, they’re going to annoy the shit out of me on tour.”

“I don’t know, they’re going to be pretty fucking annoying on my end to, I live with her, you know.”

“Well we can fix that.” He said cheekily, and you giggled.

“No, Andrew, we can’t. At least not until I retire and go do something else. I love this, but it’s really starting to get to be a pain in the ass. Maybe I can start a band like my man.” You laughed and you heard him chuckle.

“Well I’ve never heard you sing, but your screaming is excellent.”

You flushed.

“You’re such an asshole.”

“(Y/N), you’re on soon, get changed.” The director said to you, with a small amount of irritation in her voice.

“Oh fuck. I’ve got to go, see you in a few.” You told Andy as you ran off to get into your next outfit. You were barely changed by the time you were supposed to go out, and (Y/B/F/N) was laughing at you the whole time, not even bothering to help, since she had her own walk to get ready for.

“Knock ‘em dead.” She laughed, and you glared at her.

“Don’t get eye-raped too hard.” You told her, and she looked bemused just before you went back out.

This time you didn’t look down at Andy, because you weren’t supposed to look down, you were supposed to look straight ahead, but when you turned you threw him another wink pretty sure that the red outfit you were wearing was going to catch his attention quite nicely. Just as you suspected he was staring at you with an expression almost like marvel.

You continued back down the walk, swinging your hips just slightly more than necessary.

“Who?” Your best friend asked, and you smirked.

“Ashley.” You told her as she went out, slightly flushed. You hurried to get changed, ignoring your phone as it rang, not wanting to be late for your next walk.

When you went back out Andy was seething, you could see it in his face, you didn’t look at him once afterwards, but when you heard your phone ring you answered it.

He was indignant. “Why didn’t you answer my call.”

“I had to get dressed, I’m only given the exact amount of time I would need to change.”

You could’ve answered and changed, he said and you could hear him pouting.

“I know, I’m sorry.” Yoy giggled. “How about I take you out to ice cream to make it up to you, does that sound nice?”

“Yeah,” he said, calming down a little. “I want you to keep the red one.”

“Andy, that’s stealing.”

“Say I told them I’d kill you if you didn’t.”

“Andy, no, I’ll buy some red lingerie later.” You assured him.

“I don’t want you to buy red lingerie, I want you to steal it.”

“Andy, you’re horrible.” You laughed and started changing back into your street clothes.

“But you love it.” He countered and you smiled.

“I can’t argue with that.”

“I love you too.” He chuckled. “Now steal the underwear.”

“No, Andy.”

“(YYYYY/NNN)!” He whined, and you giggled.

“No, Andy, and that’s final.”

“Fine,” He pouted, and you laughed.

“I love you, darling.” You murmured into the phone, making a kissing noise before hanging up. He was a silly man, but he was your silly man.

West Wing Rewatch: S1E1, Pilot

So Mr. Knack and I have decided to do a West Wing rewatch, because we love love LOOOVE the first four seasons.  (And, if I’m being honest, we never finished the series because we lost heart a bit after AS left.)  And I’m totally in love with scribblscrabbl‘s West Wing / Inception AU.  So it seems like a good time.

So here we are on the pilot.  

  • I love how we meet people:
    • Sam is having troubles with women and the press (remember when Rob Lowe was supposedly the biggest name actor on this show?)
    • Leo making a fuss about the crossword and then pedi-conferencing his way through the Oval Office.  With MRS. LANDINGHAM!!!!!!  I love Mrs. Landingham!
    • CJ seeking for life-work balance and giving us physical comedy
    • Josh is asleep on his desk.  Donna whipping him into shape and bantering with Leo.
    • Toby on the plane.  AHAHAHAHAHA.  I love Toby.  I’ve loved Toby from the very first moment.  
    • Mandy is wearing a beret and sassing a police officer.
  • They have pagers.  AHAHAHAHAHAHA.  
  • Poor Kathy (Sam’s assistant).  I feel like she’s the only assistant we never came to know and love.  (Vs. Donna and Ginger and Carol and Margaret. And of course Mrs. Landingham.)
  • Donna getting Josh to change his shirt: “All the girls think you look really hot in this shirt.”  The beat before we see his hand grab out for the shirt.  **gigglesnort**
  • Sam trying to bullshit his way through the tour.  (I find this hard to watch, though I recognize some people find it hilarious.)  ((Wait!  Sam graduated law school only 8 years ago?!  That’s an extraordinary 8 years, no?))
  • “I am the lord your God.”  Excellent entrance for POTUS.  
  • Toby losing his shit with Mary Marsh.  GIT HER, TOBY.
  • “So can I just say as it turns out I was the calmest person in the room?”  Heeheeheehee, Josh.
  • “Mrs. Landingham, what’s next?”   Words to live by.  Mr. Knack and I use that all the time when we’re pushing through the endless to do list.

Mr. Knack: “That’s one hell of an episode.”

Yes, yes it is.

CONFESSION: 

Every now and again, you find a game that hits you on a personal level.A game that makes you feel a world of emotions, a game that moves you, stirs you and connects you to such an extent that you become fully immersed as a resident of their world.I’ve had a few games like that in my life.
The Metal Gear series, the Legacy of Kain series, the world of the Three Kingdoms, the Sengoku Basara era of Japan, the Mother/Earthbound series, etc.But, most recently and importantly so, it’s been the world of Dragon Age.Not only is the lore incredibly deep and long-reaching but the characters are actually genuine people in their own right. You connect with them. You love them, hate them. You care for them, even weep for them. You share their happiness and their pain.You connect with them when they suffer things similar to you. Sera was abused as a child. Cullen was addicted to lyrium (drugs).
You connect with these fictional people on a personal and real level.You can have relationships with these people. And, as in real life, their sexualities differ.
Sera is a lesbian elf. Iron Bull is a pansexual Qunari. Leliana is a bisexual chantry sister and spy. Dorian is a smug and intelligent gay Tevinter mage.The game play is deep and detailed, the story is flawless. You really are going on an adventure.I owe a lot to this game. This game has become a huge part of my life.I never thought I’d say this but, honestly and from the bottom of my heart, thank you, EA.You created my dream world.A mythical world full of diverse races, terrifying creatures, excellent dialect, dragons, magic, mages, knights. And you made it a world where I wouldn’t have to change or lie about who I was. Everyone is just who they are.Sure, there’s racism, there’s slavery, there’s prejudice. But it just makes the world all that more deep and complex.It can’t be explained so simply.I will never forget this series nor will I ever love an RPG as much as this.It’s utterly flawless.Thank you for giving me this world to escape to, Bioware. Thank you for helping me through my depression and my anger.Thank you for keeping me sane and human.
Thank you for letting me live another life.I owe you more than you realise.

Your tell Calum about your insecurities

[for all of my plus size girls out there! your bodies are beautiful and you don’t need to be skinny to be beautiful xx]

The feeling of Calum’s arms around you was a very comforting feeling, but you couldn’t help but feel insecure from how big your body was compared to his. If you were smaller, he would be able to wrap his arms completely around your body and not just halfway. You were talking quietly back and forth to each other and it being late at night made you both confess a lot more, so you abruptly wanted to blurt out your thoughts.

You turned over, sliding out of Calum’s hold and turning again so that you were on your other side in front of him. He furrowed his eyebrows, almost pouting at the loss of contact.

“Why’d you leave? Now I’m getting cold,” he complained with a playful frown, tugging up the covers as he looked over at you. When he saw your furrowed eyebrows and distraught expression, his smile dropped and he became completely serious. “Oh. What’s bothering you, babe? I can tell something is.” He propped his head up on his hand, giving you his full attention.

“I just feel too fat for you, Calum,” you said quietly, gazing down at the sheets beneath you instead of his face. “You deserve someone who is skinny and beautiful… someone you can fully wrap your arms around and pick up. You can’t do those things with me and it makes me feel really bad.”

You finally looked up at Calum and his expression caught you off guard. He looked concerned and pained, like it upset him to know that you felt that way. He didn’t speak, so you continued talking.

“The amount of stretch marks I have is insane and I know you always say you like them because they’re like little tiger stripes or something,” you explained, talking quickly. “But my weight isn’t something that can be loved. Every single roll and crease and curve and bump is sickening on me.”  

“Y/N,” Calum softly spoke, reaching forward and taking ahold of your hand. He was staring deeply into your eyes, his expression never changing. “I don’t care that you aren’t skinny and weightless like you want to be. I don’t care about stretch marks and I don’t care about the amount of skin on your body. What I care about is how you make me feel and I love you for you!”

His words made your face warm, the feeling of the pad of his thumb smoothing over your skin sending your stomach into a twist. It was crazy how Calum could make you feel better in an instant, whether it was his sense of humor or his excellent way with words. That was why you loved him, because he didn’t hesitate to make you feel beautiful and loved.

“Why do you go out of your way to make sure I feel beautiful, Calum?” you shyly asked, resting your head on your pillow and blinking up at him. Calum leaned forward, softly connecting your lips together and leaning away just slightly so that your noses were brushing together.

“Because I want you to see exactly what I see. You’re nothing but gorgeous to me, Y/N, so I don’t want you thinking something else,” he replied, lifting your intertwined hands into the air and swinging them above you. By now you were smiling widely, feeling better than you were a few minutes ago.

“Thank you for everything,” you whispered, leaning up and lightly kissing him once more. “For putting up with my shit and helping me feel better whenever I feel down. I appreciate it, Cal.”

Calum nodded, tightening his hold on your hand before he began tugging you back to him with a whine. “Now come back over here and cuddle with me!” You giggled, flipping over and pressing your back against his front to relax in his hold once more. Within second both of you were back to the way you were before, quietly exchanging thoughts about the world and talking nonsense.
