one of my recent fave collections

People were interested in me doing a thing like this, so here we go! I figured I’d do a short little blurb about each writer, including one or two of my favorite works by them. So, in no real order (like, I literally randomized the list) here are some of the most talented people* whose art I’ve had the pleasure of reading:

*Please note that some of these people haven’t written for bellarke in a while! That doesn’t mean you should pester them about it! Appreciate the heck out of what they have written instead. Cool? Cool.

1. Maria @rebelprincebell AO3

Maria’s written a good variety of longer and shorter fics, and each of them is excellent. (She’s also an amazing human/friend, but that’s more of a side perk.) She’s currently writing Things We Shouldn’t Do which is what everyone wants out of a multi-chap, fake-dating, actors AU. Or for something shorter, check out T.O.P. S.E.C.R.E.T. for some friends-with-benefits/feelings-reveal goodness. And maybe if she loves me she’ll finish Let’s Go to the Mall but it’s nbd.

2. Steph @ofhobbitsandwomen AO3

I read The Squire (multi-chap, medieval AU) when I was pretty new to the fandom, and I’m still completely in awe of it. Steph’s also written a million other amazing bellarke fics, like this fluffy-af youtubers AU (and, recently, some fucking amazing Jyn/Cassian stuff, if you’re into that) so make sure to check out all of her incredible writing.

3. M @ahmren AO3

M’s writing is magical. At the risk of sounding cliche, it wraps you up and carries you to another world. I could survive on nothing but her collection of soulmate AUs for years to come. 

4. Chash @ponyregrets AO3

Chash has written a million and one amazing fics, so obvs read everything she’s written, but one of my particular faves is Some Cheese With That Whine. It gives me all the best-friends-to-lovers feelings. Amazing. Plus she likes all my posts when I’m flailing about ffx <3

5. Katelyn @nathenmiller AO3

Secrets is the only arranged marriage fic you ever need to read. Period. I also love this fluffy lil childhood-friends-meet-up-ten-years-later AU. Plus, on top of all the fantastic writing, K’s one of the incredibly hardworking ladies behind bff. What a girl??

6. Lana @marauders-groupie AO3

Lana’s another one of those writers where I know I’ll like everything she publishes. She’s like, the queen a soulmate AU’s. Her most recent one is here–a cool iteration where you feel whatever pain your soulmate feels. As with all the other authors here, don’t forget to check out all her other stories!

7. Kacka @katchyalater AO3

I discovered Kacka this summer, and her stories saved me from boredom on the countless train rides I was taking across Europe. By which I mean you should just read through everything on her AO3 page, like I did. Everyone loves a good coffee-shop AU, right? Check out Got to Find Those Extra Cups to Fill. She’s a fantastic, inspiring writer and an even lovelier human being.

8. Emily @prosciuttoe AO3

Emily had the nerve to make me cry by posting a canonverse fic, Hold This Heart Steady, today. So do yourself a favor and read that. Other Emily faves include: Your Heart Is Your Own (So Build Me A Home) and Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic (for all your Hogwarts AU needs).

9. Brianna @jvnscass AO3

Bri’s another one of the authors I first read when I joined the fandom! She doesn’t write much bellarke anymore, but it’s all still up on her AO3 along with a ton of quality Jyn/Cassian fics, if that’s your jam!

10. Nai @hiddenpolkadots AO3

Want canon-verse smut? Nai’s got u covered: Mouth Like Heaven, Kisses Like Stars. Or for something on the fluffier/hurtcomfort side, try the light that sits at the bottom of your chest. You literally can’t go wrong. She writes Jily too!

11. Kayla @kay-emm-gee AO3

Kayla’s the first person I ever considered my “favorite fanfic author” and the title still fits, even if I do have about a million “favorite” authors now. Full Circle is an older, post s2, fic of hers, but it’s undeniably still one of my faves. A more recent fave is: this is your heart (can you feel it). These are both canonverse, but she writes amazing modern AUs as well. <3

12. Meghan @bellamyfrecklefaceblake AO3

I feel like Meghan writes the best epic-feelings-reveal scenes?? Some faves are: A Drunk Mind Speaks A Sober Heart and You Won’t Get Rid of Me Without a Fight. I want to live in the feelings at the end of these fics pls and thx. (Also, hope your hand is doing better!!)

13. Mel @caramelkru AO3

Is it getting old for me to keep saying I like everything insert-name-here writes?? I’d stop, except that it’s TRUE. Mel is fantastic. Her last installment in Good Times Gonna Come is so cute I can’t actually stand it. Something In The Air (That Night) is also super good. (She also writes Sethkate and Jyn/Cassian!)

(Okay I’m running out of time for these last few–gotta get to class–so I’ll just do one fic rec from each writer, BUT they’re all such fucking talented authors. Everything they write is amazing.)

14. Katie @dreamingundone AO3

take a running start

15. Jazz @hooksandheroics  AO3

Out of All the Gin Joints

16. S @kinetic-elaboration  AO3

Since There’s No Place To Go

17. Amber @bilexualclarke  AO3

asleep in the bathtub (also, like… her blog title doesn’t lie)

18. Emily @kieraknighted  AO3

Walk With Me

19. Annie @clarkescrusade  AO3

those broken and delicate things

20. Julia @enoughtotemptme  AO3

Aurora Borealis

21. @queenofchildren  AO3

But We Fight For Roses Too

I also asked for some lesser known fic recs, so check these out!

Lay It All On Me by @peetaspikelets

The Thing About Pre-Med by theprincessandtheking

In My Dreams We Are Always Together by andsowemeetagain


OKAY PHEW. I think that’s everything. As a last note, don’t forget to appreciate your favorite authors! A comment or reblog here and there goes a long way. Kudos and likes are lovely, but not quite as tangible as comments and tags.

Happy Reading!

anonymous asked:

hey, rebecca, correct me if I'm wrong, but you like shakespeare, right? do you happen to have any bootlegs of recent-ish (ideally post-2000) performances of ... well, anything? even romeo and juliet would be great. I'm not really sure how popular shakespeare is amongst theatre fans, especially because they seem to focus on musicals a lot here on tumblr? I've just never actually *seen* his plays, so I'm curious. any help in the right direction would be lovely!

you’re in luck!  you don’t even need bootlegs thanks to the lovely company at shakespeare’s globe.  their shows are all staged in more or less the early modern style, but it just adds to the fantastic aesthetic.  if it’s post-2000 stage productions you’re after, i highly recommend them all.  

if you use torrents, then here are links to the following productions of shakespeare’s plays at the globe (there might be more dvds available but these were all i could find):  

all’s well that ends well (comedy) 
as you like it (comedy) 
love’s labours lost (comedy)
much ado about nothing (comedy) 
merry wives of windsor (comedy) 
twelfth night (comedy) 
taming of the shrew (comedy) 

othello (tragedy) 
romeo and juliet (tragedy) 

henry viii (history) 
henry iv part one (history)
henry iv part two (history) 
henry v (history)

and this is a production of doctor faustus put on by the globe.  it’s marlowe, not shakespeare, but a fantastic play and if you enjoy these productions then you’ll love it just as much.   

these are misc stage productions put on by other companies: 

julius caesar (history) (royal shakespeare company)
the tempest (tragedy) (stratford theatre) 
macbeth (tragedy) (royal shakespeare company)
hamlet (tragedy) (royal shakespeare company) 
coriolanus (tragedy) (national theatre live) 
much ado about nothing (comedy) (wyndham’s theatre) 

speaking of hamlet, some lovely person put together this compilation post a while ago, so there are various productions of hamlet there.  

and the duchess of malfi is webster, not shakespeare, but it’s such a fantastic play and he’s another early modern writer.  so again, recommended.  this production was done at the greenwich theatre. 

and i feel like im forgetting some really obvious recent productions, but here’s the collection i devised off the top of my head.   as far as movie versions go, if you are interested in those as well, there have been some great productions in the last few years.  the hollow crown series (bbc) covered one of the history quartets (richard ii, henry iv part one, henry iv part two, henry v) and i greatly enjoyed all four films (richard ii was my personal fave though).  there was also a romeo and juliet movie recently, though they edited a lot of shakespeare’s text so if you’re here for that then i wouldn’t recommend it.  in 2011 there was a film version of much ado about nothing which was particularly popular (a joss whedon production with many familiar faces). 

there are, of course, countless classics as well.  if you’re interested, some of my personal favourite shakespeare movies are richard iii (laurence olivier), much ado about nothing (kenneth branagh), henry v (kenneth branagh), titus (a julie taymor production starring anthony hopkins as titus andronicus - a SUPERB adaptation, unforgettable), romeo and juliet (1968, directed by zeffirelli), hamlet (kenneth branagh - not necessarily a fan of EVERYTHING in this version, but GOD it is a FEAST for the eyes, and when the casting is right it is sooooo right.  def worth checking out).  

and GOD im sure there are many, many, many more BUT I’VE GONE FOR WAY TOO LONG SO THERE.  GO FORTH.   if you don’t use torrents, then i recommend a quick google on how to do so. if you can’t, then sorry!  but at least you know these copies exist and can look for them elsewhere.  and maybe someone else searching for shows can use these.

Mimikyuu Headcanons

  • Locals have nicknamed them “Mimichu”
  • Mimikyuu were rarely seen in the past. It would hide in dark caves, crevices and other spots to avoid sunlight. They adopted cloths as a means of becoming more mobile, and to get closer to people. During the Alolan Pikachu craze they adapted further.
  • It was believed that Mimikyuu used their disguises to lure in children to eat. This old wive’s tale has only recently been challenged by trainers of Mimikyuu.
  • Although they are shy around people and other pokemon, Mimikyuu seem to have an almost telepathic connection to others of its kind. If you befriend one Mimikyuu, others seem to instinctively trust you.
  • Mimikyuu like the rain, but their costumes often end up dripping wet and smudged.
  • They make squeaker noises, much like a popular stuffed toy.
  • Mimikyuu like hanging onto bits of fabric belonging to their trainer, such as an old sock or handkerchief. If your socks keep going missing, your mimikyuu may have started a little collection.

what is your favourite card of your favourite pokemon? this is mine, I used to have it when I was a kid (sadly lost it) and his pose is so cool!


That card is so cool! I don’t have that one! My card collection is unfortunately boxed away, at least the old as shit cards are haha! I have a Vaporeon card stored away that is so pretty!

Pretty sure it is this one and not the holo one, but I might have the holo one in fact too! Also I really like the Light Vaporeon card. 

My recent fave is the HUGE Blaziken card my husband bought me. I need to frame it so it doesn’t bend, there is no way I could play with it, but thankfully a standard sized version was included.  (Link to pictures of that beautiful card)

Relationship Status: working on snagging kipnis
Favourite Colour: PINK
Lipstick or Chapstick: totally different things 
Last Song You Listened To: now journey to the past is playing on repeat in my mind, does that count?
Last Movie You Watched: half of beauty and the beast
Top 3 TV shows?: the office, parks and rec, i guess sherlock?
Top 3 Characters: ?????????????? too many. i guess keith, violet, selina. too many.
Top 3 Ships: sherlolly, ben and leslie, kallura
Top 5 Musicals: really? really?????? ummm…. this is difficult because musicals are all so different. i LOVE both annie movies and the stage musical (the most recent one doesn’t actually exist it was just a collective hallucination). HAIRSPRAY is one of my all time faves. i watched it for the first time with my then best friend and two lines in to I can hear the bells, it was my favorite. the phantom of the opera is another i adore, although i wish there was another movie version based on the book because the book is wonderful. i love both stories equally, but you really can’t compare them because they’re totally and completely different. also one of my favorite things in the book is how raoul is essentially described as a 15 year old in a 20 year old’s body, and it’s painfully and adorably accurate. HOWEVER as much as phantom is one of my favorite movies, emmy rossum’s voice makes me cringe, and i have to go and listen to sarah brightman almost immediately after, with the exception of the point of no return and down once more. sarah brightman has the better voice, but she (imo) lacks the passion to sing those songs the way they deserve to be sung. i would listen to gerard butler over michael crawford any day though. the harvey girls is hilarious, and judy garland is amazing always. i count duck soup as a musical too, obviously. anastasia has been one of my favorites my whole life, and the new soundtrack is amazing too, although i miss hearing kelsey grammer and bernadette peters. do not miss hearing meg ryan. ew. cinderella 1997 (brandy) and cinderella 1957 (julie andrews) are also wonderful. I JUST REMEMBERED I GOT THE 1950 DISNEY CINDERELLA SOUNDTRACK AT HALF PRICE BOOKS TODAY. wicked gets better every time i listen to it. kristin chenoweth is just fantastic. i will always love mary poppins and the sound of music (julie andrews eyyyyyyyyyyy), but i especially love trying to sing the lonely goatherd, and i always cry when they sing eidleweiss and all the austrian people stand up and start singing with them. now i’ve got that song about being single forever from the harvey girls stuck in my head. another one that always makes me cry is the very end of one day more, when they sing, “tomorrow we’ll discover what our God in heaven has in store,” because you know what’s in store? death, that’s what. and it’s not that they die, but how hopeful they sound at the end of that song. on the topic of les mis, i could also ramble on about nick pitera, susan boyle, joanie banville, and lea salonga, at which point i’d also start in about allegiance, which i havent even seen, i just know THAT ONE SONG which i adore.  AND HOW COULD I FORGET STARKID??? honestly there’s nothing on the level of guys like potter from a very potter sequel. or most of those songs tbh. CATS. i finally found out it is betty buckley who sings my favorite version of memory (after literal years of searching because there’s no cast information in my cd info and none of the recordings i found were ever right). there’s a song for each of my cats, and i love it so much. also grease is quickly becoming one of my favorite movies / musicals. i will only date a guy who will sing summer lovin’ with me as a duet. i’m sure there are more, and i’m aware this is way more than 5, but i dont really know what you expected. 

I’ve got 36 figures of Freiza and counting because every time I go on a trip or to a con or downtown I look for whatever I’m obsess on finding atm (usually a new Myth Cloth or recently anything related to JoJo) and the default Frieza because I know there are so much out there and I’m always looking to collect them all xD
And yeah Frieza is one of my favorite characters of all time but is not the most favorite, he is just  the one who happens to have the most merch of all my faves xD

And I’m gonna take this chance that I pulled them all out of the showcase to clean them to take picts of them because is something I wanted to do from a long time. I’ll just apologize for the lack of nice background xD 
Also not shown on this pict but on the individual I’ll include this one from the XPLUS collection which is just to big for the shell so he remains on his box most of the time xD

Also if you wanna block my Dragon Ball spam you can block the tag “Frieza” or “Chibi nerds about Dragon Ball

AH! Okay so since I just recently reached 800 followers (and oh my I’m so thankful wow! Thank you❤︎❤︎ idek how that happened! Eek ) I’ve also never done one of these before but I’ve been collecting together, over many days, a mahoosive list of my all time faves forever and ever and ever and for making this website amazing!
