I was unsure whether to call this a follow forever or a fic rec post, since it is somewhat a combination of both? Shit, I don’t know. But I reached the 3,000 follower milestone today and honestly, I cannot thank all of my readers enough. I know I always say that I write for myself, because I do – but every single one of you helps me to push on and pursue my writing dreams with your wonderful comments, likes and reblogs. There is no feeling greater than seeing your personal opinions on my pieces, no matter if it is a detailed review, or if it is incoherent, caps lock screaming.
Thank you for supporting me, whether you have been here from the very beginning of my persona journey, or if you have only just discovered me now. I think, throughout all of my blogs, I have never created a follow forever so I believe now is about time that I show some appreciation back to the writing community of the BTS fandom. They never cease to amaze me, and I am absolutely positive they will floor the rest of you whom may have not happened upon some of these incredible writers just yet.
As a writer, your greatest source of inspiration, support and encouragement can not only come from your readers, but your fellow writers. Thus, this post is dedicated to my favourite writers who have always, without a doubt, left my hands overflowing with infinite inspiration and have left me awestruck, laughing from the pit of my belly, and even in tears at times over their phenomenal works. Feast your eyes!
Reccer’s Note: One of my all-time favorite Taekook fics! It’s incredibly well-written and it’s such a good fucking read. I am completely in love with this one and I hope everyone gets to read it at least once in their life because this fic is a fucking pleasure.
♠ Pour Up (Drank)by mindheist - I AM NEVER GONNA GET OVER 40k GOODNESS OF FRAT BOYS FALLING IN LOVE. I laughed so many times reading this and my heart squeezed cos of all the romantic tension this fic is a blessing TBQH.
Also not a fic but nikkumeul’s nsfw is… HooOOOoo 🔥🔥her writing is amazing as well I’m such a fan
♠ We’ll find a way to make it rightby fitzgarbage - indie musician!Taehyung and college student!Jungkook.. this pulls at your heartstrings because their concerns and emotions and actions all felt very real to me? Idk. I think the writer handled the angst very well and the sweetness of the ending was worth it
♠Don’t Let Your Love Go To Wasteby krscnl - !!!!! I think this was one of the first taekook fics I read and it will stay with me forever asdfkl; so taekook meet in university and they help each other realize each other’s dreams and become a writer-actor combo.. OKAY MY DESCRIPTION SOUNDS BORING AF BUT THIS IS SO GOOD I loved the characterizations and my heart did the clench thing so many times
♠ Take Me Home (Take It Slow)by buttstrife (stormfall) - Chaebol!Taehyung is BTS’ sponsor, Jungkook’s to be more exact. I really like how the author writes Taehyung - still an oddball but there’s a depth to him - and she references actual events which are like little winks to the readers and I love it personally!
♠ ce monde est une tempêteby astringxnt - This is another author whose writing I’m in awe of, it’s so poetic and beautiful. The romantic tension in this one had me very weak
♠ Hit The Lightsby lethallergic - texting and snapchat!!!! screenshots!! (it has a sequel too BLESS) This fic has images of taekook’s heavy heavy flirting via text and I zyoomed through it I love it a lot
I’m sure I missed many great fics but those are my personal favorites!! I think you’ve heard of them before though :’) (Feel free to rec me too!)
The offensive sound of your cell phone’s alarm pulled you from your slumber. As you slowly sat up you were greeted with a pounding headache that confirmed that you had indeed drank a little to much at the party last night. Why you had let Rafa talk you into going to the Clipping show and the subsequent after party, you had no idea. He somehow always could talk you into going out and socializing.
Jumping into the shower you thought about the previous night. The concert had been amazing. You had listened to the music before, you were a fan after all, but the show was electric. It was unlike any of the concerts you had ever been to before. The soreness your legs and arms were reminded you of all the dancing you had done. At least everyone was to wrapped up in the shirtless well built man spitting fire into the microphone to notice your lack of dancing skills. After that the details of what happened the rest of the night became hazier and hazier.
After dressing and wandering into the kitchen to find aspirin, you sat at the breakfast bar staring into your bowl of cereal trying desperately to dredge up the memories of what had happened once you were at the after party. You couldn’t help but feel something important had happened…
“Rafa! Raaaaffffa! That was amazing! This is literally the best concert I have ever been too!” You were shouting over the excited people in the crowd.
“Thank you for making me come tonight!”
“Don’t thank me yet the night is just getting started,” Rafa laughed before taking a swig of his drink.
“What are you talking about? The show just ended. What are we going to do now?”
You were weaving your way through the crowd to keep up with Rafa and were starting to get nervous about what he could possibly had planned now.
“After party (Y/N), after party! We are going to hang with the guys and get lit!”
“I don’t know man… the guys are your friends..” you tell him nervously.
“Bullshit, you are coming. You’re my friend too and you are going to have the best damn night of your life. I’m not taking no for an answer,” Rafa exclaimed dramatically.
You rolled your eyes at his antics and thought about what he had said. It had been a long time since you let yourself go out and just let loose. Work kept you busy and stressed and you were having the best night you’d had in months. What’s the worst that could happen? It’s just an after party with Clipping. and you trusted Rafa.
“What the hell, let’s do it!”
Rafa’s apartment wasn’t far from the venue so friends from the show were already starting to arrive as the cab pulled up and you both jumped out. Music was playing and everyone was drinking, dancing, or socializing. You made a beeline for Adrienne and she handed you a shot of tequila.
I saw one of your answers to what makes you happy was "reading really, really good fic" so I was wondering what some of your faves are? sorry if you've already answered this before! ^^ I know you've said you're a taekook fan, so I'm curious! :)
i don’t read much scenario fic anymore but i really loved mystline / btswriter’s work (she deactivated tho), but i highly recommend @jespere-hope not only bc she’s my buddy but also her writing style has gone through a lot of changes and i’m loving what’s she written lately! she’s definitely improved a lot from when she first started and now im proud to call her one of my favourite writers :)

Thought I’d do an updated one because I literally have 100 fics in my bookmarks on AO3. I seriously spent my entire summer just reading. :’) Obvi, i’m not gonna add all 100, maybe like 30 or something though.
