otp : that day is just no good

Fabled (Karai/Shinigami)

oh my gooood. I was so stuck on this first one for so long because apparently my brain is bad at the angst I was trying to go for. Then my good friend @guide-to-the-galaxy posted her piece and reminded me “hey you have the option to au” and i slammed the table and suddenly could write again so thank you Jo I dedicate this piece to you.

I just love Karai and Shinigami together, their chemistry and their friendship is great and the mystery of their history just has me wanting more, so they are probably my overall OTP in the show if I’m honest. so this is my contribution to @lgbtmntweek for Day 1 (OTP)!

There is a legend that surrounds an ancient forest. One that has lived long and passed from parent to child for many generations. A great snake, Kiba, who guards and protects this sacred domain. She was said to have scales as white as freshly lain snow, and fangs as sharp as the finest katana forged.

There used to be a shrine for her at the edge of her forest. But it had been burnt to a crisp like the rest of the wood and the grass and the stones and the life.

It is all nothing but ash and black and death when the witch begins her trek through it. If Fire could see this, it would be devastated.

She calls herself Shinigami, though she is not Death herself. She only follows close behind, letting Death lead her to where it is called. Shinigami sees what Death has had to take in the charred and blackened remains of it all, and looks on in pity. There is nothing that she can do to reverse this tragedy. But she can give means of avenging it.

That stream truly gave us so many great moments. Have some random headcanon doodles cooked up with help of the usual suspects @spinetrick @professor-cinnamon-roll @thesnadger

the worst thing about trying to decide to read a fic:

-horrible writing.

-the summary is good but the story is written in a different language or is badly written.

-opening it to find no spaces between the paragraphs.

-both your otp and notp is tagged and you have no clue if you want to take a risk or not.

-tagged major character death and you start sweating.

-hasn’t been updated in 80 years but the summary is on point and their the best fucking writer ever.

-you start reading only to find that the person updates every ten years and you just happened to catch them on a day they finally updated.

-you find a writer and check them out, only to find out they mostly write about your notp - and of course they always update, have perfect writing and have stories that are epic.

-stories with so many fucking tags, you just shake your head and move on.

-the “i suck at summaries please check it out still” and you just, pause because it has your otp and you debate whether or not to take the risk.

-you find a pairing you never considered before and think holy shit, that could be hot and spend all day hunting through the tag.

-you ship a pairing so fucking hard, only to find like two fics and you start weeping.

-when you find a perfect story only to check the tags and see some weird shit that disgusts you and you scream why.

-a fic with good writing and summary but it’s so short or is only fan-art.

-a crossover fic where you have both of your fandoms but don’t have both of otps, just one.

-one shots that are so good you wish they were longer.

-when your notp is tagged but it’s labeled as a past relationship or says your otp is endgame, and you have to go through the notp’s awkward breakup in order for your otp to happen.

-when someone doesn’t tag properly and a plot twist hits you and you want to cry.

-you finally find a great fic that has been updated and the last update says writes block, personal issues- can’t do this, asks for co-writer, discontinues it or says lol i hate how this is turning out, deleting.

-when a writer as twenty stories to update and you cry because you like all of them and you have to wait.

-when you remember a story from like five years ago and you search for it, only to find it’s been deleted or can’t seem to find it anywhere.

-when a writer gives you an update schedule and you’re excited because they follow it but then they start missing it and you just…

-when a writer deletes a story and rewrites the same story but you like the original better.

-when your reading a story about a rare pairing that interests and your otp hate each other or just friends and it’s just so weird to read.

-when one half of your otp is in another relationship and the other half shows up with someone else and then you remember, right i’m not reading a story about my otp so i can’t get mad.

-when your otp is popular but it’s not as popular as another ship in the fandom and you hate how the other ship as so much more stories than your ship.

-when you try to read an ot3 relationship because it has two characters you love but the other character is usually from your notp and you hate when your notp share moments.

-when you beg an author (usually one where they aren’t in the fandom really) to write more stories about your otp and they say maybe and it never happens.

-when the writer literally shits on your favorite character and you can’t go through it anymore.

-when your otp isn’t the main pairing and you don’t really care about the other pairings in the story and skip to your otp parts.

-when a story has a million words and it’s so good and you know that you will spend all day and night reading it until your eyes hurt.

-when a story have 200 parts to it and you lose all hope after a while because the story is dragging.

-when your otp is going through something and so many stories are filled with angst, fluff and hurt that it makes you cry because yup, i need to read about my pain for my otp.

-when the writer refuses to write the smut you been waiting for and your otp is stuck in unresolved tension mode forever.

-when the writer unexpected changes the story’s events and you are disappointed by the direction.

-when you find a great au and the characters are so out of character… it makes you sad.

-when you open a fic only to find you hate the point of view and you scream.

-when you request a prompt and the author writes it but you are disappointed and just smile through the pain.

-when you have such a good idea in your head and you try to write it but it’s so bad that you delete it and cry, hoping someone else writes the brilliant idea that you had.

-when you don’t ship something anymore but see a great plot and you click the story and take a deep breath - because shit is about to go down.

-when you reading a great story but get distracted and skip some parts, shit goes down in between and then you think fuck, and have to start over.

-when it’s tagged “slow burn” and you say i can do this and it’s chapter 30 and my ship still hate each other like what.

-when the author says this is their first time writing smut and you think on god they better do this right - only to find out they writing eight pages on your otp making love. like yes.

-when the smut is so rushed or improper you feel cheated and log off because done. like so done.

-when it’s tagged “everyone lives” and your eyes water because that’s all you ever wanted in life.

-when the author leaves a cliffhanger and says in the author’s note “lol sorry about the cliffhanger, i’ll update soon”. you ain’t sorry, stop lying.

-when you see that the story is complete and do a happy dance, only to realize that it ended badly or the sequel/series hasn’t been updated.

No need to hide your thoughts, boi.

Your face says it all.

I was broken, I was choking, I was lost
I was bleeding, stopped believing
Could have died
I was down, I was drowning

But you came on just in time
You saved me…

mood: Eliot advising Hardison to be more assertive in his relationship with Parker, realising he’s the one asserted over the whole evening, ending up secretly proud of it.

LISTEN.


(i would like to think they were exchanging smiles not only because of keith cracking a joke to make lance feel better in that moment, but because they were also sharing an inside joke from the previous moment; keith being like: ah yes I remember back on our first day in the castle when you called me a dropout for correcting you, while lance was thinking: keith, that comeback is a bit late, you endearing little shit)

Just imagine #1
  • Currently in a Bar
  • Drunk Person A shouting to C who was next to B: THIS PERSON BELONG TO ME!
  • Person C: Excuse me?
  • Person B: Omg you're drunk, aren't you?
  • Drunk Person A who ignores B: PERSON B IS MINE! IM HIS ALL! IM THE SUN OF HIS DAWN! HIS MEAN TO BE! THE OXYGEN FOR HIS LUNGS! HIS...
  • Person B: Face to punch if you don't shut up right now
  • Person C: It's a good time to say that I was actually just asking for some change to use the telephone

30 day otp challenge with Nick and Charlie (from @heartstoppercomic)

haikyuu!! fic rec

i’ve been consuming unreasonable amounts of hq!! fic these past few months… here’s a rec list of ~70 fics for 16 ships. 

(edit: if the links aren’t working, right-click to open the fic in a new tab. sorry;;)

Bokuto/Akaashi (otp: my head, his heart)

the better boyfriend battle by norio (M)  ❤

Summary:  It’s two days after their first date anniversary, so Bokuto ruins Akaashi’s life.

i put my hand out, unfolded, into the sunlight by carafin (G)  ❤

Summary:  In which Bokuto Kotarou is woefully inept at conveying his feelings, and Akaashi Keiji has a sort-of superpower. Sort of.

Karma by dgalerab (T)

Summary: Akaashi pulls a muscle and Bokuto offers to help him with yoga. Akaashi knows a bad idea when he sees it, and he really only agrees because he’s suddenly acquired a deeply rooted desire to see Bokuto do yoga.For multiple reasons.

Maybe We’re Airborne, Baby by sterlinglee (T)

Summary: Realizing he’s got it bad for his setter is the easy part. Getting his feelings across might be the hardest thing Bokuto’s ever done, not counting his literature final or putting out the flames on that birthday cake he tried to bake for Akaashi last year, or—or a lot of things, actually.But the point still stands. Reaching out to Akaashi is a leap in the dark, and he wants it more than he’s ever wanted anything (especially the smoking remains of a cake he baked before he really understood his feelings, but knew that it’s what you attempt with your own two hands that matters).

snowflakes by arsenicjay (T)

Summary: Bokuto is a simple wizard with simple needs; a nice date, a little romance, and he’s all good to go.Or, Akaashi and Bokuto spend a day in Hogsmeade just before Christmas.

stating the obvious by ThinkingCAPSLOCK (G)

Summary:  There’s a lot of things Bokuto isn’t sure about now that he’s in university. His program, his new team, his future. There’s only one thing he’s absolutely sure of. He is not dating Akaashi Keiji. Not even a little bit.

Year-Round Love by masi (G)

Summary:  In his first year of university, Bokuto realizes that he really adores Akaashi.

Rest of the rec list under the cut!

otp prompt where on april 1st, person A, who doesn’t know which day they are, confesses to person B, who instantly assumes it’s an april fools joke and goes with it, thinking it’d be funny. person A is super happy because they honestly thought they’d get rejected and person B thinks they’re just really enthusiastic about the joke and doesn’t even stop once to ask themself “what if they’re actually serious”.
after a few months person B is kinda embarassed because the joke still isn’t over and now literally everyone thinks they’re dating. the fact that B started having a crush on A doesn’t help either. one day they build up the courage to tell A about their crush on them and A just stands there really confused because “well we’ve been dating for like 5 months i sure hope you like me” and b is like “what
