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

1. Something to talk about | tarantism and thominewt | Complete | 150k | Not Rated

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.

2. thrashing on the line; desperate & divine | sulfuric | Complete | 46k |

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.

3. Fireworks & Team spirit | sesquipedalia | Incomplete | 36k | Mature

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.

4. i know i don’t love you (but there’s somewhere i’ve seen you before) | nowayout | Complete | 9k | Mature **

Thomas is ten when he meets Newt for the first time.

He’s sixteen when they meet for the first time once again.

5. But I’m Not the Enemy | like_vines | Incomplete | 54k | Teen

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.

6.  Love Without Words | Nanashi_Solider | Complete | 3k | General

Thomas falls for the blond who rides the same train as him.

7. Miracle | Val_Creative | Complete | 5k | Explicit **

Thomas has always been highly impulsive, as well as a concoction of horribly dangerous personality traits. He gives Newt more of a headache often than reassurance, but Newt likes him.

Somehow, and some bleedin’ way in the damn universe, Newt feels his affection for Thomas strengthen.

8. His roses bloom | tommys | Incomplete | 16k | Teen

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.

9. In this life and the next, I’ll always love you. | mikki_strange | Complete | 1k | General**

Those moments, when it was just him and Tommy existing together, Newt didn’t have to be strong.

10. Bruises | The_Peddler | Complete | 73k | Mature **

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.

11. There You Are | lugubrious | Complete | 12k | General

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.

12. Newt Should Really Learn How To Say No | why_am_I_awake | Complete | 59k | Teen

Newt should really learn to say ‘no’ to Thomas.

13. Complications | SapphireSoul102 | Complete | 21k | Teen **

14. Bottoms up | newtntommy | Complete | 2k | Mature

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.

15. We all Run From Something | EclipseWing | Complete | 14k | Teen

Her son isn’t even born when she sells him to the government.

Maze Runner/Teen Wolf X-over

16. As if he were finding out he were okay again | Mazelike | Complete | 38k | Teen

When Thomas, a 20 year-old Art student, met Newt, he didn’t expect to fall in love, to feel his heart beat faster at the sight of the blond. He didn’t expect to find love, but he does. 


When Newt, a 20 year-old British student, met Thomas, he tried everything he could not to fall in love. He didn’t have the right to. He tried everything not to fall in love but sadly, he does.

17.  See a Chance and Take It | third | Complete | 3k | Explicit

After a heated argument, Newt starts to avoid Thomas.

18. Promise Me | FreckledDragon | Complete | 20k | Teen

Thomas is late. The doors are about to close, and Newt doesn’t know what to do. He promised always to come back, so he would make it, wouldn’t he?

19. My heart Knows Me Better Than I Know Myself | ashelygail | Complete | 4k | Teen

Minho and Chuck start a bet on Thomas’ emotional feelings… without actually knowing that they did it.

20. He’s None of Your Business | milkmanofkindness | Complete | 19k | Teen

“Oh, so it’s a him,” Lydia replied, her eyes lighting up mischievously. “Who is this mysterious stranger?”

Stiles glared at her, aware of the blush that was creeping up under his collar. “He used to go to my summer camp, okay? And frankly, he’s none of your business.”

Basically a Teen Wolf/Maze Runner crossover with Newt and Stiles, where Newt comes over from London to visit Beacon Hills, and more specifically, to visit Stiles…

Join Ateneo BOx on August 17, Friday at Elements at Centris for our biggest, baddest, and boldest party of the year: BioNight 2012! Reveal your inner criminal… or cop! And party with the naughtiest of both worlds! Whatever you do.. don’t get caught! ;) See you there!

All I could think about was him
His image expelled through my mind
His scent that I had once smelled everyday became distant
And I was longing for the day that he’d return

The light in his soul had dissipated
As he strolled back home from the war
His smiling face and his warm embrace were faded and barely there

There’s never a day that he’s happy the things he must’ve seen
The pain in my heart my soul my mind are begging for one more glance

As I looked back at the broken soul who sent me out the door I see a shimmer a glimmer a sliver of hope but just like that was gone

At least he’s finally happy, he found someone who could make him smile someone who could make him laugh someone who could make him cry

It’s not like it mattered anyway my hearts been ripped in two, but at least he has someone that he could move onto

All I could think about was him
His smell
His face
His warmth

But that was all gone now, I was all gone now. Because everything good about me I had definitely left with him

And my soul is cracking for my every thought is
why wasn’t I good enough
what did I do wrong
I’m not pretty enough
I’m not skinny enough

I couldn’t even make him smile like I had once done before

All I could think about was him
His image expelled through my mind
His scent that I had once smelled everyday became distant

And I was longing for the day that I could finally move on and stop starving myself and stop hating myself

One day I hope I can find someone who can make me feel special
