This year was the year of newtmas au fic. Fic authors removed the constraints WCKD placed on Newt and Thomas’ relationship and explored how their relationship would grow and flourish in different worlds. Sometimes these fic were happy, allowing us to escape the pain of the dreaded page 250, but other times these fic were downright depressing. Authors certainly set a precedent for future tmr fic, and to show our appreciation to our wonderful fic authors below are the top 20 newtmas fics of 2015, as voted by the shipdom!
Two things to note before looking at the fic rec:
italicized titles are my personal favorites
** indicate that you should carefully read the tags before reading the fic
After numerous failed attempts to become popular, Thomas and Newt are mistakenly outed as a gay couple, which launches them to instant celebrity status. Seduced by their newfound fame, Thomas and Newt decide to fake their relationship to win homecoming kings.
Things were going perfectly as planned, but then one of them fell for the other.
Newt’s supposed to be gone, but he isn’t. Thomas still sees him everywhere, hears him everywhere - feels him everywhere - ever since the car accident that left Thomas with a hole in his chest and a dead boyfriend. Except he isn’t really, truly dead, or else Thomas wouldn’t be able to talk to him (among… other things).
Minho only wants to help. And if that means getting his only remaining best friend sent away for god knows how long, so be it.
Newt’s parents thought he was special, but the football players thought otherwise. Actually, a majority of the school thought otherwise. He spent most of his time participating in geeky clubs and obsessing over Thomas Taylor, the star football player who had golden brown eyes and a smile that could kill millions - including Newt.
Newt was fine with admiring from afar, but when his Math teacher makes him tutor Thomas, he can’t help but fall apart from anxiety.
Thomas turned his head to look at him, grinning. “You going to tell me your name now, Greenie?”
“Not a chance, shuckface,” Newt shot back. He could feel Thomas’ breath on his neck and felt his cheeks heat up. “Why’d you drag me here, anyway? Seems a lot like a bloody dumb date.”
After his father’s death, Newt, the Prince of the Scorch, starts to sneak out of the palace at night as a peasant. Thomas finds himself intrigued with the stranger he sees only at night. But as trouble stirs within the castle, it’s revealed that things are much more complicated than they originally thought.
It’s possible that Thomas loves to fall in love with other people’s love. It’s possible that Thomas is merely a hopeless romantic who likes hearing people’s stories about meeting their soulmates. It’s also possible —_ possible_ — that Thomas may have accidentally fallen in love with someone who’s not his soulmate. It’s possible.
AU in which Teresa’s soulmate surprises everybody, Minho is explicitly obsessed with dancing to ridiculous pop songs in the bath, Thomas’ supposed soulmate doesn’t exist, and Newt is the new cute neighbour who moved in next door. No one expects anything to go wrong. Except everything does when love is thrown into the mix.
Working full-time at his coffee-shop, Thomas enjoys a basic yet carefree lifestyle. That is until a certain blonde guy starts visiting on a regular basis. Newt has a story of his own to tell, not with words, but with the bruises and scars that are almost poetically sprawled over him. Thomas likes the front cover of this story, its almost to good to be true, and he vows to be the one to open up that book, and lap up every page, kissing away the bruises as he does.
Thomas Edison had spent his whole life waiting for something. He felt it in the pit of his stomach, a constant anticipation that burned in his limbs and underlined all his thoughts, his actions. It led him through life at a brisk pace, never allowing him to smell the roses as it were.
Thomas was never sure what he was searching for but he hoped that when he found it, he’d know.
Request: the Gladers are playing Truth and Dare drunk and the game starts to get a bit dirty and Minho makes Newt straddle Thomas. Shit gets out of hand and in the end they have to find a room to do some rough and angry sex in cuz they can’t take it anymore.
I used to not wanna see the way things are. It’s not that I couldn’t. It’s that I didn’t want to. But this is what life looks like now. We have to see it. We have to fight it. If we don’t fight, we die.
You were right. So I’m here now. And I’m going out there and I’m helping you. We have to get her off that platform. She’s hurt. She needs help getting over the wall. I can climb up the gate. You can distract them. We do it together. I’m just gonna follow you, anyway. You keep looking for the Bible Glock. I’ll make her something to climb down.
