  • all of these are in english
  • if you have any recommendations or additions, please let me know!
  • some fanfictions that i originally planned to include on this list were deleted by their authors :( 


CLASSICS (favorites)

The Art Of Being Extraordinary - if you haven’t read this already, wyd? The ending will destroy you - be prepared to cry. 

Letters From War - another extremely well known fic among swen. a heart-wrenching and beautifully written AU fic. even if AUs aren’t your thing, seriously, give this one a try.

Emma is a soldier on reserve in Fort Benning. Regina is the Mayor of Storybrooke. Through a pen pal program designed to ease the ache of homesick soldiers, Emma and Regina begin sending letters to one another as their relationship grows from cordial acquaintance to something neither woman would have expected - until the letters stop coming.

A Trail Of Destruction - DEFINITELY a classic imo. this is one of my favorite fanfictions of all time.

A hostage situation in City Hall leaves behind a battered, broken sheriff, and a mayor wracked with guilt. Trigger warnings for violence and gun threats and general angst. Slow-burn swan queen.

Miles To Go - AU; emma and regina meet at a party and the rest is history. this ones pretty long (80 chapters), but so worth the read! angsty & lots of ‘sexy times’ 

Everyone has their own story, this one is theirs and it paints the picture of a love story that spans over two decades, with all the ups and downs and everything else in between. SwanQueen AU
 

Of Love and Loathing - a lot of angry sex in the beginning, which eventually turns into lovey sex. another well known and well written fic - this author is one of my favorites. *reaaallyyy hot smut 

“I have been sleeping with someone,” Regina began tentatively, an acute awareness that once she said the words out loud that the madness behind her highly unorthodox situation became all the more real, “whom I absolutely loathe.” •Emma/Regina•

Meet me Halfway - one of the first swan queen fan fictions i ever read! still a classic to this day. AU

Emma Swan works hard every night as a bartender, struggling to raise her son and save up enough to own her own bar. Regina Mills is an upper class New York photographer who wouldn’t normally spare a second glance at people below her. When their paths cross, their lives adapt to each other, but how much are they willing to change?

Love Undefined - in the process of re-reading this one because of how much i love it. angsty as hell but such a beautiful story.

It’s been eight years since the last time Regina and Emma saw each other, eight years since Emma lost part of her happiness, her family, and everything fell apart. But she hasn’t forgotten those three years in New York, or any of what Regina had brought into her life. A late night phone call to Regina takes Emma back eleven years to when they met, saved each other from loneliness, and Emma started learning what it meant to live. She relives the moments that had changed her life for the better, and even the ones that had hurt.

Teacher’s Pet - KNOWN AS THE ONE TEACHER/STUDENT FANFIC THAT EVERYONE HAS READ. 

Emma Swan is starting her senior year. Her friends tell her about the Creative Writing teacher that she has on her schedule and how no one had passed her class with an A, not even her bookworm friend, Belle. What will she do? And who exactly is this ‘bitchy Evil Queen’ as they claim her to be? SwanQueen. Student/Teacher. M for language and future chapters.

Lost in Translation - i wasn’t sure about this before reading it but i LOVED it. the description pretty much sums it up.

AU. Regina is deaf. Emma is the only one who refuses to give her pity. In response, Regina is thrilled by this new challenge and the stand-offs commence, but over time she finds out there is more to the blonde woman than just a target to throw a stinging quip and pointed glare at.

Send Up a Signal - emma and regina are actresses and their fans ship them with each other. ;)

Emma Swan is catapulted into stardom, the newest lead actress on a sanitized show featuring modern fairytales. Regina Mills is a long-undermined star with a chip on her shoulder and a thousand reasons why she’s invested. Naturally, they loathe each other on sight.Their characters’ fanbases, however, have other ideas.

Reset - SO. GOOD. 95 chapters. if you’re looking for long fanfics, this is for you. 

Following the breaking of the curse everyone in Storybrooke is finding their happy ending, with one exception. Resigning herself to having lost Henry’s love and respect forever, Regina decides there is only one path available to her.

Take Me Home Tonight - AU!! lots of smut :) this is a newer one that i’ve seen around twitter and tumblr and i really enjoyed it! this one’s pretty short (14 chapters)

AU: Nineteen year old Emma Swan is a senior at the exclusive all girls boarding school, Foxhaven Academy. When her friends find out she’s a virgin they send her to the city to find a guy to take her v-card. But Emma is more interested in a sexy older woman she meets in a bar. A SwanQueen story.

The Staircase - non-consensual sex in the first chapter, so please be aware of that; its not for eveyone. this story is very dark but has a happy ending i promise!

Regina could still smell her cologne and feel the cheap pleather pressing into her back. The brunette sucked in a breath. She was still lying on the floor at the staircase’s base and she stared back up at it. Everything was different now. Changed. She felt broken by what had just happened, appalled and enraged, dirty. WARNING: NC17 for non-consensual sex. Dark. (But gets lighter.)

the trouble with emma - very very well known within the swan queen community. i’ll be honest, i never really got into the story but i can acknowledge that it is the most well-written fanfiction i have read to date. the author is truly talented. (the first in a series of fanfics)

Post ep 4x23, Emma becomes the Dark One and learns nothing is quite as it seems or as simple as black versus white. When Regina removes the curse no one in Storybrooke is prepared for the far reaching fallout which leaves none of their lives unaltered or untouched, least of all Regina’s.

SMUT 

shadow haven  - the one smut fic everyone has read.

Emma Swan is a PR agent who is sent on a holiday by her boss. Regina Mills is the owner of a private island named Shadow Haven. There is more to Regina than initially meets the eye. This story dips heavily into the BDSM subculture. Swan Queen romance / BDSM story.

the wicked stepmother - the one kinky fic everyone has read- or attempted to. i couldn’t get through the whole thing but the first few chapters,,, holy hell.

When the Evil Queen catches baby Emma along with Snow White, she decides on a new revenge. In Storybrooke, Snow White will be allowed to raise her daughter… but on her eighteenth birthday, Regina will come for her. Emma might just enjoy that.

in control  - Regina had never been in the habit of relinquishing control, but when it came to Emma Swan, she was starting to find out that giving in had its benefits. - Established Swan Queen - One Shot. Rated M for language and content.

the collar - It will carry strong mature themes as well as a Mistress/Slave relationship but it is also a lot more than that. However, as a warning this story will celebrate the shades of grey of our favourite couple as they find their way to each other and will deal with darker elements of their characters. Emma’s history differs a little from canon but will be covered by the story but there is no Henry and she is an adult in this fiction.

a little taste  - author of A Fine Line and Letters from War. 

Emma has been desperate to know what it’s like to kiss the smirk off of Regina Mills, but when she finally gets the chance, it doesn’t seem to be enough.

tempest - A storm ushers in an expected opportunity for Regina to finally rid herself of Emma Swan. She will posses the sheriff’s heart and then crush it. But what happens when nothing goes as planned? Rated M for language and Swan Queen sexytimes.

come on be nice - Regina has decided that the quickest way to get rid of Emma Swan is to scare off the commitment phobic woman with a come-on. This, as with many of Regina’s plans, does not go as, well, planned. Rated M for Swan Queen sex.

black lace - Emma and Henry find a way around the 'no visiting’ rule involving binoculars and the walkie talkie. Emma’s attention is fully on her son, she truly doesn’t intend to watch Regina at all. At least until the mayor begins undressing in front of her window..

dirty words - Regina is plagued by thoughts of a certain blonde. Deciding she is in need of cathartic release, she writes a quick narrative in hopes of cleansing her system. However, by a happy accident, the story falls into the wrong hands. What will Emma do with this new and intriguing insight into the mayor’s mind?

damn you, miss swan  Emma visits the mayor one night with a bottle of wine to cheer her up. Anger issues and smeared lippy ensues. WARNING: Includes a non-explicit passing reference to rape. This is my first story. A/N Jan 2015: Way back when I wrote this, no one knew anyone’s back stories, so I just made up stuff. Don’t be upset for canon divergence if you read it now. It wasn’t canon then.

mirror tricks The Evil Queen has made her way to Storybrooke, but she only seems to be interested in one thing: Emma. When Regina realises this, her jealousy starts to get the better of her.

my enemy’s enemy After her mother’s death, Regina finds a terrible surprise hidden among the witch’s belongings. Unfortunately, the only one able to cure her from the ailment is Emma…if she agrees. Strong language and mature themes. First stab at SwanQueen :)

ANGST

to remember her happy ending - “She doesn’t even remember her family! How am I going to explain this to her when she hates me!” She was falling apart now. The way the women in the other room had just looked at her, with such disdain. That wasn’t her wife. That was the Mayor, the Evil Queen maybe…but not her wife.

for endings are where we begin Regina Mills is your average working mom - she spends long hours at her bakery, loves her son Henry with all that she is, and can touch dead things and bring them back to life.Emma Swan is an orphan, an ex-convict, and a bail bondsperson residing in Massachusetts. She is also currently dead.This is the story of how they meet.

the loudest silence - New to Chicago Emma, a professional cellist, is shocked to find that a beautiful deaf woman is her new president of the board. As their friendship grows Emma begins to wonder, what does it look like when a world of sound and a world of silence meet somewhere in the middle? SwanQueen AU

broken 16 year Emma Swan is a preachers daughter on a tight leash, what happens when Regina Mills returns to town, dark, mysterious and dangerous? Will her father’s expectations take over or will Emma follow her heart? Is Regina legit or is Emma cute little pawn? Will Emma be able to love Regina for who she is or will her dark past ruin it ALL! SwanQueen G!P Some BDSM

bring her home Cora’s dead. Henry lives with the Charmings. Regina continues spiraling through grief and loss and hatred. Then Emma suddenly falls unconscious and Henry shows up at Regina’s door because he needs her help to bring Emma back. Reluctantly, Regina embarks on a wild swan chase through Emma’s mind, a whirlwind of ‘roads‐less‐traveled’ and ‘what‐ifs’ and ‘might‐have‐beens’, in order to bring her home.

if the blazer fits Emma decides to dress up like Regina for a Halloween party at The Rabbit Hole, a seemingly innocent decision that surprisingly leads to a relationship. The romance is openly feared by some and secretly despised by an unlikely source, who plots to end it.

a fine line Upon Regina’s banishment, the small town of Storybrooke becomes protected once again by an enchantment that prevents anyone from leaving or entering Storybrooke. Emma and Regina find themselves on the edge of the town, wishing for a way to the other side.

a pale imitation Regina is furious with Emma after she brings back Marian, but since she can’t take it out on her, Regina creates a mindless clone of Emma to hit instead. The clone doesn’t stay mindless for long though, developing an obsession with Regina. Written for summer 2014 Swan Queen Big Bang. (TW for sexual assault/rape and graphic depictions of violence)

FLUFF

one fine mess - Regina’s gut twisted with an agonizing pull and, for just a moment, she thought she might need to take up the same position as the woman crouched before her. “You’re pregnant?” she whispered grimly. Emma’s only response was to turn and retch into the toilet again. — Swan Queen, magic!pregnancy

coffee at midnight - (so good) Slow burn AU that starts with two women from different parts of the USA meeting on Twitter. Emma is an insomniac loner who is a Personal Trainer. Regina is a writer with a sleepless baby. Their lack of sleep and love for coffee soon brings them together and after that they find it hard to part. This is a fic where coffee is taking to mythical levels, despite it’s bad effect on people with insomnia and people with babies - showing that sometimes what you need and want isn’t always the thing that is wholesome and harmless. But also that denying yourself it will only lead to misery, something which Regina has to apply to other parts of her life.

all the single ladies With the library in desperate need of renovation, Storybrooke prepares for a fundraising dinner and bachelorette auction. What mischief and romance can be found as a result? SwanQueen with some RedBeauty Rating has been raised to M - now including adult content.


TEACHER+STUDENT / EMPLOYEE+BOSS

teacher’s pet - see above (classics)

take me home tonight - see above (classics)

step into my office, baby  - This is what you get for doing the nice thing, Emma thinks. You do that whole Pay It Forward bullshit - you buy a lady some coffee and you pretend like it isn’t totally motivated by how she looks in a pencil skirt - and she goes and insults your business card and turns out to be your company’s new Executive Director. Real fucking cute.From now on, she is drinking tea.or, the one where they’re in an office.

teaching miss mills  - Swan Queen Teacher AU: Emma is a gym teacher, who moves to Storybrooke Academy after becoming disenchanted with her job back in Boston.

not a virgin anymore When college student Emma Swan wakes up one morning with no memory of what happened the night before she’s very surprised she finds herself in professor Mills’s bed. 

is that so, miss swan? - College student, Emma Swan, is confronted by her favorite professor and secret heart-throb, Dr. Regina Mills. What happens when Emma is forced to reveal her secrets? We shall see. AU. Slightly OOC at times. No magic. SwanQueen. Rated M for serious language and eventual sexy times between our two favorite ladies.

butterfly effect - in her final year of college, Emma finds she has more to account for than the extra credits she needs in order to graduate. Only… she doesn’t expect it to come in the form of her newest instructor, Professor Regina Mills. Complete. AU Swan Queen

a sophisticated seduction Emma’s a college student, working as an intern at the Dazzle Magazine for a powerful woman she has never had the good fortune of meeting. But everything in her life is about to change when they finally meet. Especially when one falls so deeply in love with the other and the insecurities from a broken marriage comes to light. (Not Based on The Devil Wears Prada)

some other faves

down east decisions - Massachusetts State Police Capt. Emma Swan leaves her red-hot career to become the police chief of sleepy Storybrooke, Maine. She’s hoping for a less-complicated, less-dangerous life, a desire that is dashed on both counts. AU. No magic. Crime drama and romance. Swan Queen is endgame.

that drunken night - Emma’s wasted and accidentally calls Regina instead of her mom. And Regina isn’t as loathe to talk to the blonde as she usually pretends. Did things change between them so radically while they were in Neverland? (No copyright infringement intended.)

chasing henry - SQ. Tired of the tricks and lies of both of his mothers, Henry follows the dwarves, Red and Granny when they use Tiny’s magic beans to return themselves to their old land. Emma and Regina both chase after him, and they reluctantly travel together through the Enchanted Forest in order to find him and bring him back home safely.

so does this make us both the other woman? - Set after 3b in a peaceful Storybrooke where Regina is with Robin and Emma’s fallen into a relationship with Hook. Shame about all that subtext that’s rapidly threatening to become text.

lurkeymclurker  asked:

Can you tell us about the Empires propaganda machine?

Later, after, in all the holonews segments and all the long ‘net articles furnishing further analysis, they—and here ‘they’ is vaguely defined, reporting is is too scattershot in a galaxy marked by lightyears and hyperlanes—will not be able to pinpoint the place where they went wrong. Where it was all tipped from earnest republican v. separatist reporting to laying the groundwork for imperial v. everyone else. When they stopped, or when their blades met with armor they couldn’t pierce, or—

But by then it’s too late. It’s too late, the Empire is already wound itself through every word spoken and every reference made; it’s in everything, a dark undercurrent of emotion and justification—don’t you love the Republic? don’t you care about other galactic citizens? don’t you want to follow the laws and reward those who have justified their existence as you have justified yours? you have worked so hard, the day is long and the rewards few, why would you give those to others? why would you share?

(’Sharing’ is a dirty word, under the Empire. To each according to his strength, that is the Imperial motto. But ‘strength’ is a narrow gate, and it cuts many off at the knees, the ankles, those unguarded places—)

There is no question that human beings are afraid of difference they have been afraid of that since whatever primordial swamp they crawled out of but—they have always put it aside, they have always at least pretended to the idea of recognizing other species, the claim of xenos to homeworlds. the equal right of existence. Et cetera. Never mistake how hard human beings will try, when confronted with tentacles, if there is profit or benefit in ignoring any difference.

But humans also reproduce like orburs in spring, and they colonize, multiply out into the galaxy like a plague. Like a—spore. Like something biological and not, because nothing in nature moves without regard to the animus they generate. And they are a tetchy species, measuring everything in relative value. It doesn’t matter if—

Luke does not stop to question the holoradio adverts he hears, the faded propos papering the Toshe public hall, saying ‘JOIN THE EMPIRE TODAY! FLY FOR THE EMPIRE! BE BRAVE BE TRUE BE STALWART!’ Anywhere is better than here, right? Get closer to that bright center and anything is better—

(It is still hard to find that bright line between the Republic under the tyranny of the Clone Wars and the perpetual state the Empire embodies. That is just how these things go.)

Leia is on the first line of defense for the Rebellion, she watches propos and listens to senators argue, quoting lines from holodramas—ironically, but also as illustrations. (She learns very young that a well-told story, even fictional, has quicker legs than one badly told and true. She disapproves, but that is the way of things.) It is amazing how many late Republicans would have supported he Empire despite explicitly stating they did not support the Empire, its agents, or any move toward a less democratic structure of government. It is amazing how weak it makes them seem, given what she knows about the inner workings of the capitol. It is—

Han is good at finding cantinas where, if the Imperial propos cut into he grav-ball match, everyone groans aloud. He smiles a little against the curve of the mug as everyone curses out the poor bastard who has to—

(Han always feels a little bad for him. Her. Whoever—he knows what it’s like to have your neck under someone’s boot, to know you don’t really have choice in this. At least he’s busy smuggling, can’t be much a spokesperson that way.)

The Resistance does not have the access the Empire does, but the Rebellion has feed hackers, holonet ‘ware corrupters. The Alliance blasts every inbox with public reveals of complaints, salaries, donations. Saw Guerra’s people de-encrypt transmissions, and release them to the ‘net in vicious anarchic fashion. (Make of it what you will, that Tarkin sent a transmission to Krennic saying ‘stop being so gentle on your workforce,’ after Krennic’s 12-hour days resulted in its first overworked, dehydrated, malnourished death.)

Regional reporters dump their findings onto the holonet, saying, look at what the governor is doing, we buried the jedi but we found, we—

look, they say in unison. look at this. you are not alone. you are not crazy. something has shifted, something significant has changed and you are not alone in thinking this. We are here, together, and this is dangerous, this is—

you are not alone. you are right, your perception of the world is—there is an objective reality, and they depart from it. you are right. you are sane. it is the galaxy that has gone insane in the interim.

“Senator?” the holonet reporter asks, when Mon Mothma falls silent, and she is smiling down at the podium. “Senator, if you could—”

“According to the study conducted by the Galactic Agency for—” she begins, and the briefing room falls so quiet she is afraid she has lost them. But there is a holonet reporter in the first row who has pressed her hand to her mouth, even as her eyes are wide, fixed on Mon’s face; and out of the corner of her eye, Mon can see Leia Organa (so much Bail and Breha’s daughter, even now) pressing her lips together, her eyes shut. And this is good. They are good, they are better. Here is the study. Here is the definition. Here is the closest she knows how to get to objective reality.

She justifies. From the root word, meaning justice. Meaning to make right. Meaning, more than what is what is available on the surface, more than what is unquestioned. More. 

So much more.

Cariña - Dear or Darling

Tag List: @the-a-ham @philipandlaurens


You were doing your usual, sitting and doing your grueling work on your computer, when the door opened.

“Cariña?” Lin called. “I’m home!”

An smile crept on your face, as it always did when your boyfriend came home from work. You sat up and yelled “I’m in the living room!”

He pranced in, grinning and holding a large wooden object. You looked at him quizzically. “What’s that?” You pointed at the object. “It’s for you!” he smiled like a giddy child and held it out to you.

You took it carefully and inspected it. It was a large book, carved and put together beautifully. Looking at Lin and raising an eye brow, you said “What is it?” his brown eyes sparkled. “Well, look at it!”

The cover was carved with a title at the top in swirling letters. “The Perfect Fit”. In the middle, two detached pieces of wood shaped like a Yin Yang sign were there, one had a picture of you carved into it, the other a picture of him. In between the two was carved “A story of two people who fit perfectly together.” You looked at Lin, then tried to turn the page and found you could not. “No, no, it’s a puzzle!” Lin chuckled. He put a hand on the piece that had your face on it, and you looked at him for a moment before putting your hand on the other one. You pushed it and it moved, Lin pushed his, so that they came together, and a click could be heard.

You turned the page.

On one side, there was more writing. You inspected it.

“Once upon a time, there was an awkward young Latino boy and a beautiful girl with [eye color] eyes. She was energetic and kind, he was nerdy and whimsical.” You giggled lightly.

“One warm Spring morning, the two were walking to school when they bumped into each other, causing them to drop their books. They apologized at the same time, helped each other gather their things, and when they walked away they both hoped they’d see each other again.”

On the opposite page, there was two half circles with knobs. You tentatively turned the first knob and where the half circles ended there was an array of characters and things. You smiled when you saw the familiar one, a little ghost, and you remembered that when you’d met, he’d been wearing a shirt of Casper the ghost. Reaching for the second knob, you stopped it on another familiar object, heels. You’d been wearing heels that day. Never again.

A click, and you looked up at Lin. His eyes were wide and he looked at you expectantly. There was a sense of something in his eyes. Anxiety? Fear? You turned the page.

It was titled “The Journey”. Your eyes flitted over the writing and you couldn’t help but smile like a dork.

“The girl went to school and noticed that awkward but dashingly handsome boy being bullied every day. He was called names, pushed, shut in lockers, and thrown in trash cans. One day she couldn’t take it anymore and spoke up against the bullies for him. This started their friendship.

In college they were dorm roomies and stayed close through everything. Bad relationships, breakups, family loss, you name it. They were constantly there for each other, but neither realized they were slowly falling in love.

When they were 20 hey got into a play in theater together, and both were cast in the lead roles. Their first kiss was scripted, but that’s when he realized he loved her. He finally mustered up the courage to ask her out a month later, right after their performance of the play. She said yes.”

On the other page, there was a little car and a bunch of grooves for it to drive through. As you moved the tiny Chevy, little landmarks swung up. The theater where you had your first kiss, the building  you had your first date on top of overlooking the stars, and it ended at one of your fondest memories, the time when you snuck away in Lin’s car and drove all the way to Florida and played on the beach two days before your exams started. When you reached the end, there was a click. You turned the page.

This one was titled “Little Ankle” and read:

“The two went to Florida at a time that was pretty inconvenient. But they came back not only happy, but with a new companion.

Little Tobillo came running up to them on the beach cold, wet, and covered in sand. A helpless puppy with nowhere to go. They took her in and named her Tobillo because she liked to nip their ankles. They thought she was a boy at first but by the time they found out it was too late to change her name. Tobi it was and Tobi it would stay.”

On the opposite page was a circle with you on one side and Lin on the other, cut down the middle. You glanced at Lin and then separated the two to reveal Tobillo walking in between the two. You giggled and turned the page.

“Perfect Two” was the title, and you read on.

“Now you’re  probably wondering what the fuck I’m doing. Have patience, love, and let me tell the story.

Now, they’re getting older. Not really settling, because everyone knows they’ll probably never settle down. But calming, a bit. He does movies and theater. she does work from home and the occasional theater role. They’ve been dating for going on 7 years. Are they really perfect for each other? No one knows.”

You frowned a bit and looked at the opposite page. It was an eyelet and a moving piece of wood. You looked at him. He was fidgeting in his seat and you could see he was shaking. “Go on.” He coaxed quietly. “Open it.”

You pried your eyes off of him, mind ablaze with questions, and turned the page.

The little compartment opened to reveal a beautiful ring with a sparkling diamond staring you in the face. You began to shake, and slowly picked it up, looking it over. Finally, you looked a Lin. But he wasn’t there, he was on one knee on the floor, his brown eyes sparkling despite his shaking hands.

“[full name], I’ve loved you since we bumped into each other, and ever since. I’ve never stopped loving you and I never will. You’ve stayed with me through thick and thin and that makes me so happy. I know I can always rely on you for anything, and I know for sure that I want you to be my wife. What do you say?”

You didn’t bother wiping the huge tears streaming down your face, you just stared at him, ring clutched in between your fingers, and watched as his face started to fall. You immediately enveloped him in a huge hug, now sobbing into his shoulder. After a few minutes, you pulled away and looked at his face. He had tears on his face and in his eyes, which you wiped away with your thumb. You thought for a good minute, just looking at him as more tears fell from both of your eyes.

Finally, you spoke.

“Of course I’ll marry you, you fucking dork.”

anonymous asked:

Do you have any fic requests? Anything you want us to read by the other admins or some tumblr friends?

I sure do nonnie! Sit tight and buckle in this is going to be long (maybe) I’ll start with friends and pick some of my favs from them okay? Everyone I’m picking I promise you should read every thing they’ve written all of it is amazing and honestly I personally believe some fics should be turned into movies. Anyway these particular fics have changed the way I read and write fanfiction so you should also follow these blogs (all the admins I’m about to shout out are amazing and kind) If you want me to do another and separate them by groups and genres then I can do that as well. 

By @kpoppantydrop: A Rose Coloured Rogue that has four parts to it. It’s a SHINee fic but features Jimin (BTS), Wonho, and Xiumin written by admin Winter for Rogue’s birthday. A warning though it is smut. 

Another one is Prettiest Pink a Jin (BTS) smut by Admin Lily. It’s filth from start to finish and I love it it’s so great I think I actually blushed whilst reading it. 

Also here’s a cute as fuck Jackson (GOT7) fluff by Admin Desire called Something Good. It’s a birthday fic and it made me smile so hard whilst reading it! 

Of course I have lots of others (Their masterlist is endless you’ll be on their blog forever I promise you wont regret it.)

By @xiuminsm : Here’s a super long Yixing fic that is Royalty AU and omg its so fucking amazing, it’s titled Until Hell Freezes Over  it’s another smut but the smut is rather brief and its easy to skip over if you want to (I don’t recommend it though.) 

Another installment in the Royalty AU for EXO this is for Suho and it’s titled Bete Noir the world that Liv spins in this series is seriously breathtaking. It’s a smut (yet again, I’m sorry most of the fics will have an adult theme) but its soooo worth the read. 

By @smutfictionaddicted (also @kpopthirstaddicted) she’s moved to @writings-by-cl but a lot of her fics are on her old blogs: Crocodiles in Sin City is a fic based off the Sin City universe that became movies how friggin cool is that?! There are heavy warnings with this it’s very mature so be cautious before clicking. 

Strawberry Ice Cream is a drabble by CL based off a series by @chanyeolspout (which I’ll be linking you to as well.) I don’t usually read Chanyeol fics but its so gooodddd

By @chanyeolspout : Here’s the mini masterlist for Breeze as said above a Chanyeol fic of about nine parts you won’t regret it please read! 

In Abstenia really fucked me up like ??? Why did you do this to me??? It’s optional bias and v smutty 

Welcome Back is a Sehun oneshot with exhibitionism, lots of smut, and a fresh from tour Sehun who misses you a lot. (Just punch me in the face tbh)

anonymous asked:

I love your writing style, it's so thorough and beautiful, I feel like you'd have good taste in other people's writing. Do you have any recommendations on AO3? Like some fics you really love.

oh thank you so much, that’s very kind of you!!

i’m afraid my taste in writing is a little bit all over the place, but i’ll do my best to put a comprehensive list together :)

[this list isn’t in order of favorite bc i love all these fics so much, so i decided to put them together by wordcount]

first, the hockey at the end of the world series by ionthesparrow. this is one of my all time favs in fanfiction. it’s a dystopian au and it’s a little bit on the darker side, so it’s not going to be for everyone, but i love it to pieces.

some other beginning’s end by turningterrific 71k is another favorite of mine. It’s Sid/Geno kidfic and it’s pretty long; Sid and Geno are so good with each other, and all the kidfic pieces are great.

a good education by rsadelle, 73k. This is Claude/Danny with a heavy serving of Danny’s irl family and a few OCs. There’s not much external conflict imo, but it’s a great exploration of their relationship.

bow and arrow by oflights, 45k. Sid/Geno, Sid gets left int he altar. oflights writes great ensemble fic, and there’s plenty of that in this fic. her fics are also great if you’re looking for geno’s pov.

dig a hole, fill it up by inlovewithnight, 45k. Willie Mitchell/Aaron Ekblad. this fic features rape recovery and polyamory, so it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s truly great. also no magical healing dicks.

at home in the uncanny valley by ionthesparrow, 35k. Kyle Rau/Nick Bjugstad. i have only thing to say about this fic and that is that i’ve only cried at fic once and this was it. absolutely heartbreaking at parts but great as always.

sing each song twice over by uraneia. Sid/Geno, 31k. future fic about second chances aka my kink. WARNING: features animal death. 

down by the brazos by ionthesparrow, 23k. Jeff Carter/Mike Richards again, AU. Pretty difficult read, but anything by this writer is absolute gold for me.

uphold the great endeavor by electrumqueen, 21k, McJesus/Aaron Ekblad. this writer has a very distinct style which may or may not work for some, but this fic is def one of my favorites by them.  

the to love and honor series by cephalopody, 20k, Filip Forsberg/Calle Jarnkrok. an arranged marriage au that’s not very rosy. tougher read but worth it. the second fic deals with the aftermath of the marriage. 

you caught the light, you carried mine by lissa_bear, thistidalwave, 19k. Connor/Ryan. hurt/comfort at its best. very soft.

gives you hell by gdgdbaby, 15k, Mitch/Dylan. the enemies to friends to lovers fic that needed to be written about them. also features soulmates. also a v good writer, would definitely recommend their work, but, like, this ask can only get so long. 

i know where to start by rsadelle, 16k. Jeff/Mike. this is d/s, which is another one of my kinks lol. there’s no sexual component to their relationship, just a heads up.

gravel to tempo by capebretons 14k, Connor/Dylan. more lighthearted than the rest, a boarding school au with a lot of feelings. def recommend if you’re into hs aus.

something old by uraneia, 13k, Danny/Claude. this fic is absolutely amazing. it’s a future fic again and it’s all about second chances, which, as i mentioned, is my kink. it’s funny at parts and heartbreaking at others and just. i love it a lot. 

the words i never got to say the first time around by idday, 11k, Jack/Connor. i love future fic and this def worked for me. their relationship is so heartwarming to read for a while. anything by this author is a rec but this is my fav fic by them.

night at sea by sharksdontlseep, 11k. Tyler Bozak/Phil Kessel. aag phil, offseason fic. amazing get together fic. warning for fertility issues.

asset management by sharksdontsleep, 10k. Jack Johnson/David Clarkson. again anything by this author is fantastic, and this one is one of my favorites by them.

as tall as cliffs by oflights, 9k. Tyson/Gabe. *bangs fist on table* READ THIS. seriously this is so funny and in character, and again with great avs ensemble.

we are the ones (the ones you left behind) by idday, 8k. Connor/Dylan. great fic that explores dylan and jack’s friendship. like i said, this author is great, go read this.

five for fighting by disarm_d, 7k. Mitch/Matt Martin. great fic that explores the difference in dynamics between mitch and matt..

secret ingredients by melodiousb, 6k. Kevin Hayes/Yandles. you all know how much i lobe kevin hayes’ voice, but this is so good for so many more reasons.i it’s a great fic, and i’m sad it’s not longer.

these are just some of my bookmarks, let me know fi they work for you/you want more :))

anonymous asked:

Any fics where Clarke meets lexa and she's like athletic and hot

okay, well, i’m gonna answer this in sections, mostly for my own shits

first up are the fics from my sports au tag that i’ve already read and enjoyed enough to have posted them! so like, these fics come with my stamp of approval basically

Love Me ‘Till My Heart Starts
- ok so it’s not exactly your traditional hot athlete lexa. she plays golf. clarke plays golf. but objectively, they are both very hot and they are both athletes and this is a great fic so there.

break your plans
- lmao i feel like this fic has been around since the Beginning of Time but it’s still going strong and i love that! lexa’s a Hot hockey player, so there you go. feat. friends with benefits with accidental feelings so you can’t go wrong.

Pancakes
- lexa is a hot soccer player and she is very hot and that is a problem for clarke and also me

But still good
- so lexa’s a soccer coach, and as we already established, objectively hot. but real talk, this is one of the best and cutest fics you’ll ever read REC REC REC REC

Thirty-Two Minutes
- lexa’s a (hot) star basketball player but she’s also a tragic homosexual and keeps getting distracted by the (hot) blonde cheerleader from the other team on the sidelines. gdi lexa

jump then fall
- really really really really cute high school au where lexa plays hockey and, bonus, is hot

Gold
- yoooooooooooooooooooo. remember that olympics thing people wouldn’t shut up about this summer? WELL. clarke plays soccer and lexa swims and they meet and it’s pretty hot. and great. and amazing. and this is a great fic.

HSAU
- lexa is on the football team and she is really hot and this story is really cute!!!!

this one gets its own section, idk

A Soccer Love Story
- ok i actually did read this one awhile back, and funny enough, i’ve been meaning to come back and reread it. lexa’s a soccer player for the US women’s national team (so of COURSE she’s hot) but when i read this i didn’t even know who they were. so a lot of this went over my head. since then, however, i’ve become about 1000% more invested in soccer and i’d probably enjoy this much more (clarke and lexa are still v cute but the fic is a bit heavy on the uswnt stuff). so just be warned! it was a great fic though and even though i didn’t understand a lot, i remember i couldn’t stop reading it so that probably says something :)

the following fics are ones i bookmarked AGES ago to read for another sports au rec i never answered, but i never got around to reading them. so i’m going to share them with you, but i can’t personally recommend them. let’s hope lexa’s still hot though!

No One Else Like You
- The story of how Clarke and her friends just want to play hockey and Lexa just wants to professionally skate, but there’s only one rink at the university. or the story of how Octavia and Raven (and company) have always been little shits except now on ice.

picture this
-  Ice Hockey Player Lexa is injured during a game and ends up needing phsyio (and guess who is her physio therapist ?) Or: Lexa thinks her physiotherapist is cute

The Weekend
-  Lexa is a professional soccer player and she’s got a simple, semi-charmed life. She’s never dated, not finding any need to. Her roommate Raven and her own a house in Polis, but Raven is away when one of her childhood friends comes to the house in need of help.

How big, how blue, how beautiful
-  Clarke plays tennis for her team in Ark University, Lexa for the Polis University. They’re rivals. What happens when you fall for the one person you’re not supposed to?

and uh, this one, idk, it’s been on my list to read but i haven’t gotten around to it

Waiting for Love to Strike
-  After the death of her father, Clarke Griffin had lost everyone that she had cared about and all she had left was the sport that made her feel most connected to him. So with nothing left to keep her home, the college freshman left for her first year of school with a hope of replacing all that she`d lost. But when her new soccer captain, Lexa Woods, turns out to be more of a dictator than a teammate will Clarke find that she’s in over her head? Or will she find herself ready to take the plunge when love strikes?

anonymous asked:

LOOOOng ask ahead. So I was going through your ask joon blog, which is super cute, and I came across a post where joon says he likes drawing and stuff. And that made me remember that actual namjoon is not that great at drawing. But see it got me thinking, why do we make fanfictions or AUs about real people. Because as I see it, we don’t know these people through and through. Obviously celebrities keep some part of their life private. And yet [1]

yet in fanfiction we assign these characteristics to them, either exaggerating or diminishing their qualities to fit whatever we need it to be. And I understand why sometimes people would want to see a person a certain way, but that’s kinda your private ideas, keep them to yourselves, not spread them around. Like how in so many fics namjin ar so soft and pure and angsty and smexy, when in reality they are just two normal guys who do normal things and chill out. Im not trying to be all [2]

HETRO HETRO HETRO, im just saying that whatever their actual orientations may be fanfiction will always be off and incorrect because these are real people who are not ‘open to interpretation’ like fictional characters. And that sort of resonates with my problem for AUs as well. As much as Im a sucker for AU fanfictions there is still something that bothers me. I once asked a ReaderXBTS fic writer how it didn’t feel like going too far by writing smuts about BTS members who are(once again) [3]

) actual living people, and I think the answer I got was that ;but you know we aren’t really thinking its them you know…’ which aside from being sort of against the point of a reader insert fic, gives off the vibe that you literally could have created your own character to put in this story but you are just randomly using their names and some habits to give the impression of a certain person but not actually claim responsibility for it. I hope I don’t [4]

offend by using your blog as an example, but your ‘joon’ and actual namjoon are different people, but it feels as if you’ve borrowed his identity for some cutesy fin drawing (which they are no doubt, cute and funny). If these weird ramblings don’t make sense to you here’s a question. Why do people not want BTS to discover their fanfics, why does it embarrass them. Is it because they know that there is something wrong with writing [5]

fics about real people? What are your thoughts? And Im really hoping that you don’t give me a crap response like ‘They are celebrities, they should kinda expect it, it comes with the job’ because Im holding you to a higher standard [end]

lmao ‘long’ indeed XD

Ok let’s start slowly and get some things out of the way. Firstly, please don’t worry, I don’t mind you using my stuff as an example, so don’t feel concerned about that, it’s all good :D 

The reason people wouldn’t want BTS (or whoever else it may be) to find their fics are numerous and all quite different. But generally it’s because they’re fictional and therefore obviously made up and not representing the actual people properly, not to mention it involves the writer’s own little fantasy so it’s embarrassing. Some reasons are: fics containing ships, fics containing personality types pulled to the extreme, not to mention all the smut, kinks, mpreg(why is this a thing) and all very explicit at that. 

So there’s that. 

I agree with you when you say that x Reader fics not actually portraying that actual person is hypocritical. Cuz it’s true. It is. Like that’s the purpose of a x Reader fic/scenario. But that’s also why I really really dislike x Reader fics/scenarios and avoid them like the plague.

Back to normal fics… I think there’s a few more layers to understand for this.

I’ll tell you what my and my friend’s view on this is, because we’ve talked about it before. 

First of all, in real life, Rap Monster and Namjoon are two different people. V and Taehyung, Suga and Yoongi, etc etc. what you see on TV, on your phone, on stage is not the real person. That’s, unfortunately, not something a lot of people seem to understand, but that is the truth. We as fans don’t know them now and probably will never know them, because when a camera in on, so is this little mask that everyone with that kind of lifestyle needs in order to keep sane. 
In that way, what a lot of fans actually fall in love with isn’t the person,, but the idea of that person. And that’s what’s being portrayed in fics as well. Not the person itself, but the idea. What’s in fics isn’t Namjoon, but Rap Moster. Except everyone calls him Namjoon because imagine reading an intense moment and seeing Rap Monster I think I’d burst out laughing.

So that’s one thing. Secondly, “why use them instead of original characters?”. Well… why make fanart? People write and draw about people or characters because they like them and it’s fun. 
Another reason is because it’s easier to insert a person/character that the reader already has an image of in a scenario. Because then you don’t need to waste time on describing hings about them, because people already know, so you can more quickly get into your story.
There’s an extra layer too and that’s because of exposure. You have ideas, if you write or draw something for the first time the chances of people seeing your work is scarcely close to zero. But if you adapt your idea to fit in with a show, or with characters or with people that already have a following, the chance of your work being seen by others immediately skyrockets. A lot of people read fanfiction. A lot of people like seeing art about their favorites. Whether people like to admit it or not, or whether they even did it unknowingly or not, the fact of the matter is that you as a creator have way of a bigger chance of getting your stuff known if you do it within a fandom. Of course, not everyone does it because of that, but it’s a thought for quite a few people, tho I think that’s more in art than writing. 

There’s also the very easy reason of: It’s fun.

I don’t think it’s wrong to write fict starring celebrities. I think it’s fun and cute and a great release for a lot of people. I think some people push it a bit far, but that’s also mainly just because of my personal preferences. 

There’s plenty of people who are well aware of the fanfics and who’ve actually read a few. Fr example Zico and really everyone in Block B made fun of it one time, Zico talked about some smut ones and even commented that they were too soft lmao. I’m pretty sure they would consider it a milestone to find fanfiction XD

So yeah… don’t think too much about it anon.

I’m just… going to… lie down… for a little while… not because… I’ve been… crying over Star Wars fic… again… or anything… no, definitely not….. (Fic recs every Wednesday.)

anonymous asked:

Why do you hate abo?

LOOK MOM MY TRUE CALLING!!! SPREADING SALTINESS AND KINKSHAMING!!!! i feel so free.

okay. *clears throat* i have expressed my hate for this ugly ass trope so many times. if you dont know what abo is, it stands for alpha/beta/omega and is a very popular trope in fics, especially slash fics. it is also known as omega verse. i googled it bc i was innocent and had no idea what the fuck it is. (apparently it comes from the supernatural fandom which im not surprised like, pls delete). if u wanna know what it all is, just google it :d

sadly, abo has become soOOoo fucking popular. not just in the western world but apparently its becoming a popular trope all over the world and even manga artists are using that trope which pls no.

why do i hate it? god. so many reasons. where to even START.

tw: rape 

  • first of all: it’s always explicit. i think somebody once said writing/drawing abo w/o smut is like. i dont even knwo anymore but like u dont write a fic in an omega verse without there being smut. not that smut is bad, but usually those fics are just pure smut with no fucking plot. it’s the kind of ugly fetishization a lot of slash shippers have towards gay ships. they just outward dont care about anything else but the smut. its just pure sexualization of those relationships which is already a fucking problem in the fandoms anyway, but with abo fics its even WORSE. its like yall dont care about other stuff, gay couples arent just there to have hot steamy sex ya know u can also just write them being nice and cute and domestic and fluffy and cuddling 
  • it’s basically just some kinky ass shit usually by straight girls (not always sorry) that try to let their kinks free and no offense but i am a kinkshamer and i love kinkshaming so this is going on my motherfuckign list too and yall cant stop me
  • it enforces ugly ass gender roles. which is disgusting. because there shOULDNT EVEN BE GENDER ROLES BC THEYRE ALL DUDES USUALLY OR JUST ?!?!? i once saw a abo fic where omegas have to wear girls dresses and thats just dude can we stop with that ugly ass feminization of omegas???? i’m all here for boys wearing dresses if they want fuck gender roles but in that fic they were literally forced to wear them, like … , this whole thing just pushes them into those roles which is another role

much more under the cut this is very very long

PSA: How to Critique a Fan Fiction Writer (DITTO)

(This is dedicated to @illyriantremors–girl, you’re amazing.)

Hey, Everyone!

One of the fun parts about being in a fandom and interacting with fan fiction writers and fan artists like yourself is the conversations we get to have together. Fic writers and fan artists are accessible to us in ways that the actual creator often isn’t, and it’s a lot of fun to be able to interact them as they interpret (and reinterpret) your favorite characters. That said, there are certain things you should be careful of when you’re talking to your fellow fans who work hard on their art and writing. This post focuses on fan fiction writers specifically, but you can apply a lot of the principles to fan artists, too.

First, a quick list of things to remember:

  • Fan fiction writers make no money from their work.
  • Fan fiction writers are not necessarily professional writers outside of their fan work. It may just be a hobby for them or even an emotional release.
  • Fan fiction writers often spend a lot of time on a piece (and they’ll usually say so if they haven’t). 
  • Fan fiction writers are human beings with feelings.

These things are important to remember if you want to critique their work. By “critique,” I mean point out something that you didn’t like or that you think they could do better in the future. Here’s a little acronym to make it easy:


DITTO

Did they ask? A lot of fan fic writers want to know what you think! They want to hear from you if you thought a character was a little OOC or if the AU was awkward or any number of things! They’ll usually say it in the author’s notes. On the other hand, they might also say they’re not looking for criticism and they just wrote the piece to blow off steam or something. In this case, keep it to yourself.

Is it helpful? Will your criticism actually help improve the piece/writing, or will it just make the writer feel bad? This follows D! Only proceed to letter I if you know the writer is open to critique/help! To figure out if your comment is helpful, check to see what the nature is. Does the critique come from your personal opinion and is it something the author can’t actually change without totally reworking the whole piece? That’s not really helpful because most fic writers aren’t looking to do that. Is it a grammar or spelling suggestion? That’s helpful! I’ve had people catch awkward typos in my work and I’m so thankful! Did they get a character’s eye color wrong? In most cases, that’s helpful too, because it could just be the writer forgot. Are you angry about their OC and want to tell them what a Mary Sue she is? Not helpful.

Tit-for-tat? The best way to approach constructive criticism is by offering something you liked along with your criticism. Fic writers aren’t necessarily fragile flowers who need constant flattery, but no one is going to be willing to listen to a ton of critique if they don’t think there’s anything good about the piece and they’re discouraged. You can say, “Hey, the AU in this piece was super fun! I never thought of a spaceship AU! I’m not sure why you put that character in this role, though. It didn’t seem to work with the character dynamics. But otherwise it was a pretty cool fic!” The critique here is cushioned by positivity and the writer will be more willing to think about the critique because they weren’t made to feel awful about their work. 

Tone? In the same vein, check your tone when talking to fan fic writers. Sometimes things are lost in interpretation on the internet, and that happens. Don’t sweat it! But there’s a big difference between a demand and a comment. I’ll have more examples below. Don’t demand an explanation for a fic writer’s choices. Politely ask. Remember, you are not entitled to anything a fan fiction writer produces. If you are not paying them, they’re not obligated to give you anything or listen to what you have to say. Most fic writers love interacting with their readers and hearing from them, but they are not required to make things the way you want them or to treat canon the way you think it should be treated. Also, the assumption that just because someone puts their writing up means they want to hear everyone’s thoughts is a fallacy. It’s a scary thing to share your writing, so please respect the risk writers are taking.

Open mind? Along these lines, fic writers don’t have to agree with you about the interpretation of a character. This variety is part of what make fan fiction and fandom in general fun, so if you wildly disagree with a fic someone has written for personal reasons and you feel angry about it, it’s probably best to keep it to yourself. However, if you’re willing to have an open mind and chat with a writer about why they made the choices they did without being determined to prove them “wrong,” then that’s okay! You don’t have to end up agreeing, but don’t go picking fights with writers who aren’t looking for that. Not cool.


EXAMPLES

I’ve been writing a lot of fanfiction this year, and I’ve gotten a variety of comments, most of which followed all these rules and were super helpful or generally positive. But I’ve also gotten some rude ones, so I’ll put them together to show a SHOULD NOT and a couple of SHOULDS.

SHOULD NOT

First, an anonymous message I received after finishing my 76-chapter fanfiction:

Didn’t like the ending. Beautiful story but u just couldn’t pull it off with how u portrayed the characters. Not trying to sound like douchbag, I’m just giving u criticism. You’ll only get better. And I have faith u can pull it off.

Now, I’m 90% sure this was a troll because there was no actual mention of any specifics of my fic in this message. However, it’s still a good example of how not to criticize a fic writer. It doesn’t matter how many times you say, “I’m not trying to be rude/sound like a douchebag” w/e, if your comment is rude, you’re not excused. And it didn’t follow DITTO. D - I didn’t ask, as I’d literally just finished writing it. I - it wasn’t helpful because there was no specific suggestion. T - there was no balance with positivity or helpfulness. T - it’s pretty obvious the person sounded snotty and dismissive, no matter their excuse Usually if you have to say you’re not trying to sound like a douchebag, you sound like one. And O - There was no open-mindedness, not even a “u tried” thing to say they got where I was coming from. The whole “I have faith” thing didn’t quite matter when they’d just shit on the ending to my 288,000-word fanfic.

Like I said, this was most likely a troll, but I’ve seen other fic writers get actual comments like this and so I figured it was a good representation.

SHOULDS

I have two great examples of these, one from my WIP-fic Realm of Eternity, and another for my fic from the Shatter Me series.

Hiya Sarah, I absolutely ADORE RoE and am basically accepting it as canon. It’s an absolute MASTERPIECE. However, it’s just, I was rereading Eos and: (Page 146-{About Maeve} (“She’s not Valg, is she?” A low laugh. “No. As cold as one, but no.”))

Let’s see how this one does! D - as I link in my response, I had an extensive theory written out to accompany my fic, and I had said that I was willing to talk stuff over to see what other people thought. And generally, I love hearing from people, so it’s good! I - this was super helpful! Because it brought up a point in canon (with a citation) about something I might have gotten wrong. T - it strikes a balance between positivity and criticism (though it’s even a little heavy on the positivity–it’s lovely but no one has to feel obligated to go to that level whenever they offer a critique). T - Approachable and friendly tone! O - Its not confrontational, and even though it’s pointing out something they might disagree with, they’re not accusing me of trampling on canon or anything.

Another example!

I’m not a hater I really love ur writing but I was reading ur SM fics and don’t you think Juliette is v v OOC? she’s so nervous and keeps counting again and again I mean obvs she doesn’t get better in one book and isn’t completely healed but she’s on the road to recovery and she’s not THAT bad. I mean everyone noticed that there weren’t any cross-outs in Ignite Me and that symbolized her character development and idk ur fic really just put her back to square 1 unnecessarily, (still luv ur fics)

D - again, I’m super open to talking about my fics, and it’s not the first time this person has sent me a mesage. So all clear! I - this is useful criticism because it points out something I did differently in canon and mentions how they’re not sure it fits with the character. T - again, it’s balanced with positivity even if this fic wasn’t her favorite of mine. T - The tone is inquisitive and approachable even if it is criticism. O - it’s clear the person wants to hear what I have to say about it and isn’t just demanding that I do it differently. It’s a conversation. And at the end of the day, that’s all fan fiction writers really want. 

CONCLUSION

Fanfiction writers love to hear from their readers, and we don’t mind criticism! But sometimes, it’s easy for readers to forget that there are helpful ways and rude ways to critique a person’s work. Don’t be afraid to offer a critique, but just be friendly and not confrontational. If something a fic writers has produced actually upsets you, it’s probably better not to read the fic or leave a comment. More people, including you, will just end up hurt that way. 

Remember DITTO and you’ll get far!

Happy December everyone! Today is the 20th of December 2016! I decided in honor of my favorite month and because the year 2016 is about to be over that I’m going to make another follow forever. It’s been about 7 years for me on this site, but only about three in dedication to the football world. I cannot imagine life without football and all that I’ve taken in these past three years. Football has changed my life in so many ways. I’ve gotten more confident because of it. I feel like my capacity for love is greater than before. I believe that football is capable of calming me (except you know when it comes to my top three: Argentina NT, River Plate, and FC Barcelona). But honestly, the feelings I have gained and continue to get from this beautiful sport inspire me every day.

Another thing I can say that this sport, this beautiful game, is the people I’ve befriended along the way. There’s the people that I consider my friends even though we don’t live close to each other. Sometimes we don’t have too many conversations, but when we do have them I appreciate every word said to me no matter how small or great in meaning.

There are the people that I follow all over in site. I see beautiful people with personal stories expanding as the world spins. I see people with a whole lot of heart, so much ability to love and to be incredible too! I see everybody so smart, so funny, so filled with potential yet to be achieved and potential achieved and then some. I’m amazed and proud to say I am friends or at least mutuals or at least a follower/followed by incredible human beings.

I see drama on Tumblr. Don’t get me wrong, I have seen it. I’ve witnessed it. I’ve been a part of it. But you know what, there’s a beauty to Tumblr too. It’s the people I’ve met. It’s to the people who follow me. It’s to the people I follow. It’s the people who I am blessed to actually call my friend.

I don’t know how any of your year has been. I don’t know the trials any of you have had to gone through. I know there aren’t words I can say that can make any of it easier, make the load just a bit lighter either. All I know is that I appreciate you, your scrolling through my blog, your following me, your reblogging and/or liking posts I’ve made or reblogged, your replies on posts, your asks, your submissions, and your private messages. I appreciate it all.

Thank you for allowing me to be with you in this community. 2017 is around the corner. It’s going to be grand, somehow and someway. Thank you again.

The words “We need to talk” followed by a no nonsense, commanding “now” leaves no room for interpretation.

Those words have never meant anything good, especially when spoken by a citizen of Mystic Falls. Not now. Not ever.

He switches the screen of his phone off as he walks into the living room.

A pang of regret and a healthy dose of ‘Damn it Damon, your timing sucks!’ flying through his mind at the sight of Caroline sitting eagerly on the couch, legs half folded underneath her, DVD set clutched in both hands.

The smile on her face dims at his serious expression, and she doesn’t miss a beat, “What’s wrong?”

MY FAVOURITE STEVEBUCKY FICS

making this for no reason other than i am INCREDIBLY dedicated to reading nothing but the best stevebucky fanfiction

so here is a condensed list of the very best stevebucky i’ve read

Into That Good Night by Nonymos

Steve Rogers has lived for entirely too long—long enough to see the world’s end. The heroes are gone, and the Earth is pushing what’s left of mankind towards the exit.

But when a makeshift team rises from the ashes, when a mysterious presence all but drags Steve there, he begins to think there may be hope yet. As they shoot for the stars one last time, Steve will get proof yet again that the future is nothing if not an echo of the past.

OK THIS IS MY ALLTIME FAVOURITE LIKE I HAVE NEVER READ A FIC THAT LEFT ME THIS WRECKED I GOT INSANELY INVESTED IN THIS FIC IT IS U N T O U C H A B LE i will never read a fic that i love as much as this fic. it’s an interstellar AU (one of my fav movies) but if u have not watched interstellar u won’t be lost or confused. just fun space things. feat CAROL DNAVERS MY LOVE, confused steve, loki fucking w ur mind, bucky here to break ur heart, bruce getting the recognition in fics he deserves, and some of the most in character writing u will ever see.



One Caress by fuck_me_barnes

Steve’s rarely been touched in a way that didn’t equate to some kind of hurt. The cold metal of a stethoscope against his frail chest or the sting of a needle drawing yet another blood sample, when he was a sickly child. The bone-shattering punches thrown by the neighborhood bullies on the playground, or by his own father at home, drunk and wild. His mother, weak and clutching at him as she grew more incoherent with the drugs as the cancer ate away at her insides. Touch was something he shied away from, something he told himself he just didn’t want.

Except…he did. He just didn’t know how.

Until he finds a flyer for a local “affection and intimacy services” program.

In which Steve learns how to become comfortable with touch, and there is one very good dog, and a slow-burn romance.

this fic is exactly waht u need. read it. u need to read it. go.


Don’t Ask by AnnaFugazzi

Captain America and Bucky Barnes were like brothers. Everyone knew that.

TORE ME INTO PIECES AND THREW ME INTO HELL i LLLLOVE THIS fic so much WARNING for period typical homophobia and the slurs that that brings (read at ur own risk)


Thirty-Eight Days and Counting by thecommodore_squid

It didn’t escape him that Steve shared his assumed last name. “Are you gonna be my cousin?” Bucky asked dully.

Steve frowned. “Husband, actually,” he said easily, holding up his left hand to show a typical golden band.

Bucky scowled and closed the door.

AKA
An AU in which Bucky is put in the witness protection program and Steve is the agent hired to protect him/pretend to be his husband.

i am not one to turn down a good fake relationship AU (many references to star wars, also i am literally steve rogers in this fic bc i am watching star wars for the first time right now do not bully me)

WARNING for mentions of addiction and torture

Itsy Bitsy Yoga by wearing_tearing

Steve frequently sends out care packages for the troops, and when he learns about the penpal program, he’s quick to fill out an application. He’s assigned Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes. Everything grows from then.

mad eme cry i love it sosososososomuch


Steve Rogers and the Tri-Wizard Tournament by gryffindor17

There’s not a person who walks the halls of Hogwarts who doesn’t know Steve Rogers: the boy with the righteous streak, hot temper, and massive crush on the Romanian Longhorns’ star Chaser, Bucky Barnes. But Bucky exists to Steve only on the front page of The Daily Prophet. He has long since resigned himself to admiring from afar, catching games when he can or otherwise following Barnes’s crusade against injustice through printed page.

Until the man himself walks into the Great Hall on the first night of their Seventh Year.

Bucky’s life outside of the spotlight is hardly worthy of a footnote, never mind a headline, but no one wants to read about Bucky Barnes being found face-down and fast asleep between the shelves of Durmstrang’s impressive library. Between his studies and the Quidditch Finals looming around the corner, the last thing Bucky needs is something like the Tri-Wizard Tournament. He knows Headmaster Pierce is expecting him to volunteer, but all Bucky really wants is to pass his N.E.W.T.S. and maybe twist The Minister’s arm into passing the bill about guaranteed pay for House Elves.

That is until he spots Merlin’s gift to man sitting at the Gryffindor table.

Then things get complicated.

same friend who recced me itsby bitsy yoga recced me this one and Let Me Tell U she is a hero because this is the hogwarts au u have always needed
