rec: one

I just really need to share with everyone that I’ve been enjoying an absolutely extraordinary Rogue One fic titled The Crystal’s Song. The story follows Baze and Chirrut a decade or two before the events of the film, detailing how they meet, become mentor and acolyte to each other, and slowly but surely fall in love. The Crystal’s Song has everything I could ask for in a story: world building, stirring supporting characters, organic and earnest conversation and a breathtaking writing style. You want pining? You want character development? You want to absolutely fall in love with how charming and clever Chirrut is and how smitten and zealous Baze can be? You got it. This fic isn’t even halfway through and it’s already become one of the best I’ve ever read- it’s made me cry, it’s made me smile, and it’s made waiting for the daily updates an insufferable and delightful experience. Please do give it a try!

an awfully big adventure by Thealmostrhetoricalquestion

“Oh,” Magnus says quietly, all the breath rushing out of him. He grips hold of the doorframe tightly, knuckles whitening, shocked by how strong his reaction is.

Alec is lying on the carpet, surrounded by throw cushions and his discarded shirt, dressed only in a pair of threadbare sweatpants and holey socks. His hair is a ragged mess of curls, and there are dark circles under his eyes – he looks about as tired as Magnus feels, but he’s still eerily beautiful, and he’s holding the baby against his bare chest. Her eyes are closed, and she is lifted up and down gently with each rise and fall of Alec’s chest, her ear pressed against his heart.

“Oh no,” Magnus says faintly.

(Or, the prompt was a Parent AU and this was what I came up with.)

nehirose  asked:

::wails unhappily:: PHIL. WHY IS THERE SO MUCH MUSKETEERS FIC THAT IS JUST BAD. WHY DOES THE AO3 TAG TAUNT ME. (yours is not bad. your musketeers fics are perfectly wonderful, may the block never affect your writing.)

LOL IT IS TRU MY HEART ACHES ALWAYS WHY IS THE FIC TAG DRY AS A BONE BUT HERE ARE SOME ICONIC FICS THAT MAKE ME REALLY HAPPY:

a nice young man by RobinLorin;;; summary: “Constance brings Aramis to Thanksgiving dinner as her fake deadbeat boyfriend. Based on the real-life Craisglist ad that went viral recently.”

the opposite of people by roselland (AN ICONIC FIC);;; summary: “The community theatre AU of BBC’s The Musketeers you never knew you wanted. Athos as stage manager, Porthos as props, Constance as costumes/makeup, Aramis as the quintessential Actor, and D'Artagnan as everybody’s favorite ingenue.”

the most devoted servant by pristineungift (aka the fic where i CRY);;;; summary: “I will watch over your son and guard him with all my strength and heart. I will lay down my life for him, if necessary. He will have no more devoted servant.”

a royal crown by suzieshooter;;; summary: “The Queen’s whimsical requests are not to be disobeyed. Aramis is happy. Athos less so.”

all you’ve been allowed by evenwithanapple;;;; summary: “Constance makes her escape.”

starts with goodbye by ladyofglencairn, sweetrupturedelight;;; summary: “The Queen is with child. Perhaps with time, he would find acceptance in what had become the greatest injustice of his life.”

friends in high places by obstinate_as_an_allegory;;;; summary: “When Bonacieux is taken for ransom on a business trip, the musketeers are tempted to sit this one out.”

winter, late in leaving by MDJensen;;; summary: “April of 1625 had been one of the hardest months of Porthos’ life. But in a strange way, it had probably been one of the best as well. Savoy-centric origin story, in which Aramis is grieving, Porthos is a saint, and Athos just kind of shows up, eventually.”

Five Times Magnus Isn't a Good Boyfriend And One Time He Is by vulturemonem
By Organization for Transformative Works

Being a high profile celebrity makes it difficult for Magnus to find enough time for his personal life. Alec’s feeling lonely after spending yet another night alone.

Or, in which Magnus is spending too much time at work, Alec confides in Chairman Meow, and Magnus tries to make everything better.

i try not to be a ~*Beer Person*~ publicly but here’s some of the nifty stuff I’ve tried recently. gotta award bonus points for Anime Elf.

not sure what it is with beers and seafood (or maybe just me and seafood-beers) but I’ve had oyster, fish and kelp-containing beers so far. Nitro and Garún were the winners for me!

“You’re being dramatic,” Alec said fondly, unsurprised. “Again.”

“I think a little drama can be forgiven,” Magnus said, mock-indignantly, conjuring a cocktail glass out of mid-air with an elegant flick of his fingers. There was a little paper umbrella floating inside it, an alarming shade of yellow, and Magnus fished it out and pointed it threateningly in Alec’s face. “Considering I almost choked to death during what should have been an intimate, sensual experience.”

(Five times that Magnus wins an argument and one time that they both sort of win.)

Fanfic Recommendations! ^_^

Originally posted by jeonsshi

Hey everyone! *waves*

So, I decided to make a list of some fics I’ve read that I recommend that you guys read! (Duh @ me, hence the title of this, why are you so dumb sometimes? cx)

I spend a bit too much time reading fanfics sometimes, when I should really be either doing homework/writing my own stuff buuut… cx 

But yeah, these are going to be pretty much all BTS fics, because I’m trash that belongs in a bin somewhere buuut cx Please do check them out, I think these authors deserve recognition!

I will also update this list as I find more cx

These are also in no particular order!!


Last updated: 22/01/17


1. Wanderer by @roseok

Reader x Park Jimin - soulmate!AU (ongoing)

So, I really liked the concept of this and how beautifully written it is c: The storyline is rather quite unique (although I haven’t read a whole lot of soulmate!AUs, it does still come off as unique!)

2. The Joker by @astro-child

Suicide Squad!AU - BTS (ongoing)

So, I’m still not over how well this goes, with Jungkook as the Joker, and Jimin as Harley Quinn?? I’ve kinda been bugging Shanel over how much I liked it, but I needed her to know that I really liked it! cx

3. Catalyst : Unbroken by @zephyoongist (collaboration/one shot)

Hunter!Yoongi x Angel!Reader (One shot)

This was honestly beautifully written, the details are really well done c: And the ending, ah the feels cx

4. Tenacious by @jin-oppa

Reader x Yoongi - Mafia/gang!AU (Ongoing)

Because I’m a sucker for mafia!Yoongi cx I really liked how this was written, and it was interesting to see how each member was portrayed as a gang member c:

5. Masquerade by @happy-meo

Reader x Jimin x Hoseok - Office!AU x Hosts!AU (Completed - 4 parts with a sequel which I also recommend)

Ah, this one had me binge reading for ages cx It also had me conflicted between Jimin and Hoseok, I couldn’t choose who I wanted (Y/N) to be with cx But it was honestly written really well, I enjoyed it ^.^ (warning: This one does have slight smut in it cx)

6. Red Skies by @jungk0oksthighs

Werewolf!AU - BTS (Completed - 10 parts)

This had me curious to find out more, and it was interesting that Jungkook is the alpha here, rather than one of the older guys like Jin or Yoongi cx

7. Strings by @minsuxga

Soulmate!AU - BTS (Completed - 2 parts)

The feels with this one was too much, ah my heart T_T But it was so so well written, the details and everything, and the ending, ah my poor heart T_T

8. Out of the Egg by @happy-meo 

Jungkook x Reader - War/Rebellion!AU (Completed - 6 parts)

So, I just read the first part of this, but I’m already hooked, the concept and storyline are so good, and it’s written so well ^_^ Ah, it’s so good!

9. Wishful Wings by @writeiolite

Jimin x Reader - Royals!AU (One shot I believe cx)

This was so cute, had me swooning over Jimin (but then again, when am I not swooning over him and the rest of BTS? cx) And I really liked the detailing of the story c:

10. Heartless by @bangtan-spells

Namjoon x Reader - Fantasy!AU (One shot I think c:)

This was unique, I haven’t read any fics with this concept/storyline before c: And as with many on this list, really well-written, props to the writer! ^.^

11. sinners to saints by @seoulscapes

Jimin x Reader - Spy!AU (Ongoing)

So, there’s actually one only part of this out so far, but that first part had me intrigued and genuinely wanting to read more ^_^ I really like the concept, and it’s written really well, even the action ^_^

12. the heir by @taegonia

Jimin x Reader (I am literal trash for this boy as you can see cx) - Mafia!AU (I’m not sure of the status of this one)

Looks like I found myself a new fanfic to binge read cx I really like how it’s written, I’ve only started reading this, but I’m already really liking it so I thought I should add it to this Fic Rec list ^_^


I will definitely be adding to this in the near future, but for now, please do check these out and support the writers! I know as a writer myself how gratifying it feels when someone leaves feedback on a story, so please do go read these, I assure you they’re good! ^_^
