Hey, friend! Thanks so much for this request! Disclaimer: THIS WAS SO HARD TO DO BECAUSE I LOVE SO MANY FICS! But if I have to narrow it down to just *gasps* 5 fics, then here they are! These aren’t in any particular order!

My Top 5 Victuuri Fics (So far!)


Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches by Reiya, 147k (WIP)
Rivals AU where Yuuri’s main goal, ever since he was a child, is to beat Victor and win the GPF. SO MUCH ANGST (like, so much) and deliciously hot, hot, hot! You might die from reading this… it’s that good. This is SO GOOD! Seriously, it’s better than most published novels I’ve read!!! I AM 1000000% TOO OBSESSED BUT I DON’T EVEN CARE IT’S SO AMAZINGSFLA

ebony & ivory by wbtrashking (fan_nerd), Explicit, 20k
A little longer than your average one shot, but OH MY GOD THIS FIC IS AMAZING. Yuuri, a pianist, moves into a new apartment complex to play with the ASO. Not long after he starts practicing, he starts getting requests from his mysterious upstairs neighbour. THIS FIC CLEARED MY SKIN AND SAVED MY SOUL IT’S SO SO AMAZING

The Fundamentals of Caring by braveten, Explicit, 20k
One of my favourite hurt/comfort fics! Yuuri comes down with a nasty cold and Victor tries to take care of him the best that he can. Full of hilariously delusional Yuuri, caring Victor, and ALL THE FLUFF! So cute, definitely recommend! LOOOOOVE!!!

Amateur or Expert? by Watermelonsmellinfellon, Teen, 1.9k
AU where Yuuri is a ice skating instructor and Victor is thirsty for him and will do whatever it takes for Yuuri to get to know him. Even if that means pretending to not know how to skate at all, even though he’s a five-time world champion. VERY cute, lots of fluff, and Victor is hilarious in this. I CAN’T STOP SCREAMING!

all the world’s a stage by braveten, Explicit, 112k
AU where Victor is the the most famous actor in Hollywood and Yuuri is a silver medalist at this year’s GPF… and also has a huge crush on Victor. Yuuri auditions to become his skating coach for a movie with the help of Pitchit and cuteness ensues. Fun, great writing, good plot. Lots of fluff, some angst, and a little bit of smut. SO FREAKIN’ GOOD ASHDGALSJFHGSJ

  • (When D.Va first got her Mech)
  • D.Va: Dibs on the Pink one!
  • Winston: D.VA, you do not want that one. It’s our newest current model; it’s bright pink and has the latest upgrades.
  • Which is a nice way of saying, everyone and their dog will be gunning for that thing!
  • Seriously, it’s like running around the battlefield asking to get shot.
  • D.Va: Pink’s my favourite colour!
  • Winston: On second thought, that robot was made for you.

“Nikos, keep it moving,” Yang says. She takes a drink, eyes still locked on Blake’s.

“Never have I ever given a blow job.” Pyrrha says. She’s probably blushing but Jaune somehow can’t look over at her. Yang whoops at it, glad to be safe on one. Then, Ruby puts a finger down across the room and Yang makes a face like she’s been shot.

“I had to learn about you getting to third base in a breakfast eatery!” Ruby shrieks. Nora laughs the loudest, but Weiss is a close second.

A scene from one of my favourite RWBY fics by @masonjo, and I have more to colour but seriously y’all should go read it? I’ve reread this College AU fic so many times and it still makes me laugh. Libs also writes hands down the best Nora, and frankly? A super likable Jaune. I don’t hand out that credit lightly. Go read it!

dreamingbrownie  asked:

Why is nobody talking about the Robert Downey Junior adaptation on Sherlock Holmes? I only saw the first movie from 2009 but it's so good?!? And a bit confusing for me because I'm a massive Iron Man fan which is the reason for me finding Tony FFs in which he dreams of his past life as Sherlock Holmes absolutely hillarious. But. So good! I still have to watch the second movie with Moriarty tho. And I love it that Sherlock clearly has ADHD there. Whatever, sorry for bothering you. Cheers!

Hi Lovely!

OH GOSH I LOVE RITCHIE HOLMES NO BOTHER AT ALL I’M ABOUT TO BOTHER YOU WITH MY MINI FREAKOUT. I mean it has its own faults and problems but I can overlook them because of the way Downey Jr. and Law play their Holmes and Watson! They so OBVIOUSLY love each other so much, and I adore the chemistry. Law even said that it’s a romance movie and BLESS HIS FUCKING HEART FOR THAT because HE KNOWS, and OH GOD RDJ loves Law so much. LIKE LOOK AT THESE FUCKERS:

*SCREAMS INTERNALLY BECAUSE I’M AT WORK*

OMG you’ll love the second one too; it’s a tad sad with the wedding, but Mary, OMG I love her in the Ritchie-verse… she KNOWS how much they love each other, doesn’t try to keep them apart, and she acknowledges how important Sherlock is to John AND AND AND she’s also a bamf too on the sidelines.

OHHHHH it’s so important that the audience is made EXPLICITLY aware of why Holmes goes after Moriarty – because he threatened Watson and Mary – and when *THAT SCENE* happens, the last thing Holmes ensures he sees is Watson, and then GOD the heartwrenching slow mo’ of that, where you see Holmes is at peace with his decision and FUCK it makes me cry thinking about it.

OH!! And Sherlock and John dance, no denials at all, just start dancing with each other, right there on screen… Like… I have no idea why people disllike these movies, honestly, they’re a treasure trove of Johnlock Moments.

OHHHH and Moriarty is genuinely frightening, imho, honestly. This Moriarty is played off as a completely “someone you meet every day” and I find that even scarier. He’s not Mags-levels of creepy, but fucknuggets he just… has an on-off switch and it’s scary. A calm sort of evil with intense levels of intelligence is more terrifying to me. 

AND THE MUSIC OMG And HNNGGG the cinematics of the second one OMG IT’S ORGASMIC THE SLOW MOTION CHASE SCENE HNNG. The action shots are AMAZING and ASDFASFD Seriously WATCH IT. AND AGAIN I WILL MENTION THE SLOW MO SCENE AT THE END. FUCK. Just FUCK, it’s a beautiful bit of cinematography that makes my heart cry EVERY time. It’s one of my favourite movies of all time and I just. GOD RDJ and Law are just so perfect. There is torture in the second one though, so slight TW for that.

Maybe it’s because RDJ was my re-introduction into Holmes and therefore it holds a special place in my heart. And I know that this is sacrilege but RDJ / Law are my Victorian Holmes/Watson, but BBC is MY Sherlock and John, you know what I mean? Like BBC got me in DEEP into the fandom, so I love them for that, and I just really love Johnlock. SO MUCH JOHNLOCK.

ANYWAY I’M RAMBLING. I can’t WAIT until the third movie, it’s been SO LONG, and I am so excited. While I love the first one because of the Garridebs moment in it (not really but John gets hurt and they have A Moment ™) I think I liked the second movie better because the “love interest” was virtually non-existent and it focussed on Holmes/Watson’s relationship and the case at hand and getting to Moriarty. It was fantastic.

And RDJ Holmes is a different kind of smoll and I love it. And Watson is so BAMF, god. Just the deadpan comedy of Law is amazing.

OH OH OH AND STEVEN FRY AS MYCROFT. OMG I LOVE HIM. PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT.

GAHHHHH. It’s such an underrated movie series because **HOLLYWOOD** and that makes me sad, but seriously I love it so much and jump at any chance to watch it. The first one, I could have done without the Adler subplot (bleh), but it’s a great movie too.

Anyway. Sorry for this momentary diversion into Ritchie-verse. Continue on Johnlocking <3

Jerome Valeska x Reader: Our Love

a big thank you to my lovely friend @im-not-dead-but-i-should-be who made writing this story possible by helping me so much!

also idk  but it really took me long to write this and it’s so short….. omg kill me


‘Perfect. Fucking perfect.’

[Y/N] was going to be late. Thanks to her alarm. She knew that shit is going to broke sooner or later and she didn’t do anything about it.

She would’t even care but today was Monday and her first class on Monday was English.

She despised her English teacher. He was an asshole. Always making rude comments about her and the other girls.

‘[Y/L/N] why do you look so sad? Smile, kid! You look so pretty with that smile!’

‘[Y/LN] what’s with that stupid smile? You’re supposed to read something!’

He was so annoying.


[Y/N] realized she’s already late anyway, so why should she bother? She wanted to have a proper breakfast.

After doing her morning routine she grabbed a backpack, keys and left the apartment.

Ugh. It was snowing.  

As she peacefully walked on the iced streets of Gotham, she checked the time and she couldn’t believe herself. This is what you get when you “shouldn’t bother”.

[Y/N] was going to be late. Again. To her second class.

So she did the only think she could think of.

She ran.


When [Y/N]’s feet met the slippery bridge, she didn’t slow down. She knew it was very risky but she could’t be that late, she would be in trouble!

She thought she’s going to be just fine because she was already in the middle of the construction but oh boy, how naive she was.

Then she was running and now she wasn’t.

Her face was in the snow..

Yes, she slipped.

[Y/N] groaned and was about to start getting up but she heard a laugh.

Quite maniacal one.

It was a male, he sounded young. She didn’t want to see him, she was to ashamed to show him his face.

It was obvious that her fall looked hilarious but seriously, she could have hurt herself!

Now she was mad at this guy.

Still too embarrassed to get up though.

So poor [Y/N] laid there until she heard the person walking away still giggling a little.

‘Wow. What an asshole.’ She thought and finally stood up.


She arrived to school after her English class. She made it right on time.

At least she didn’t have to confront her teacher.


Classes passed by very quickly, thanks to [Y/N]’s five friends.

They were supposed to grab something to eat and go to the movies. [Y/N] loved cinema.

As the laughing pack left the building they heard an explosion and people screaming. Just around the corner.

“What was that?!”

“I don’t know, let’s check it out!”

‘Very fucking smart..’ Thought [Y/N] but didn’t say anything.

Now while walking in the direction of even louder screams she seriously wanted to say something. It really wasn’t a good idea to go there, now with everything happening with Jerome Valeska being alive and his cult–




–And the penny drops.

‘That laugh. It was him!’

When running people started to pass them by she stopped in her tracks.

“Okay guys, this is very stupid of us. We really shouldn–”

“My, my, what do we have here?” Somebody cut her off.

The group slowly turned around to meet Jerome Valeska, in the flesh, standing there and smiling madly at them.

‘Oh no…now we’re screwed’

As they stared at him, too afraid to run, a school bus pulled up.

Those lunatics. Those lunatics from his cult were in this bus. 

[Y/N] could’t take a good look from her position but it seemed like all of them were ugly men with clown make up on their faces, holding weapons. 

Jerome started to laugh darkly as he saw the fear in their eyes.

“Come on children, the bus is hereee! Now, get in or..” He targeted his gun at them.

“..die.”

Scared pack could only nod, expect [Y/N].

“Alrighty then…” She spoke, wanting to play it cool. She didn’t want to give him satisfaction of her shaking in fear.

All of her friends were already in the bus, probably sobbing and not knowing what to do.

[Y/N] really wanted to save her ass, so she started to think about the plan.

The moment she was about to step into the bus, passing Jerome, [Y/N] flirtatiously smiled at him, kinda praying he’s not gay. Her plan was to use her looks to save herself. She didn’t expect anything just yet, she didn’t even have a full plan, it was all so spontaneous.

When their eye contact broke she heard him say “C'mere, Angel.”

A little shocked [Y/N] skipped to him and gave him a small smile.

She felt him put an arm around her waist.

“We can’t let you fall and hurt yourself again, can we?”

Now she was sure it was him laughing at her earlier. Douchebag.

[Y/N] only nodded as she let him hold her waist and sensing him entering the bus right after her.

Then she felt somebody hitting her head with something hard and she fell straight on the bus floor knocked out.


“Rise and shine, Beautiful..” A hot breath on her ear was present as she started to wake up.

Her vision more clear now, so she could see she’s been lying on the hard floor, and noticed the Ginger hovering over her.

She whined because her head hurt like hell.

Jerome’s face softened as he caressed her cheek.

“I’m so sorry about it, Doll. That idiot who did that to you is already dead.”

He helped her to stand up and took her to another room of wherever they were.  

What [Y/N] saw before her was absolutely terrible. Her friends tied to the chairs, crying in pain. Three psychos torturing them.

When they saw Jerome coming in, they left the room one by one, still laughing.

“Alrighty!” He shouted smiling widely at her almost lifeless friends and then turned to [Y/N].

“Listen [Y/N]..” She wasn’t even surprised he knew her name.

“When I saw you for the first time.. I knew you were just like me. Different. What I’m saying is, join me. You can be my queen of hearts. Well, more like of my heart. I know you feel the same about me, Doll Face.”

Okay, this is crazy. [Y/N] wanted to play with his mind and make him think that she likes him because she wants to be alive. Nothing wrong with that.. but she wasn’t prepared for something like this, for God’s sake. It’s not her fault nobody ever loved Jerome this way. Or at all.

What is he gonna do to her friends?!

“What about my friends?”

“Thought you’re not gonna ask! That’s the funny part, Darling!”

“..What?”

“You’re going to kill ‘em! Bang! You don’t need ‘em do you?! I’m everything you need!”

[Y/N] forgot how to speak English. She started to pray this is all a cruel joke or better - a nightmare.

“Are you crazy?! I’m not doing this!”

“Yes. You. Are.” She could tell he was angry.

He pushed a gun into her hands.

“You’re doing this, Lovely. Now.”

She targeted the gun at them, shaking like mad. She didn’t want to do this.

“Pull the trigger.” He hissed.

Too many emotions. [Y/N] was so nervous she started to sob, look on her friend’s faces not helping at all. Hopeless like they were expecting her to do it..

Now Jerome was seriously annoyed and bored.

“Guess I have to kill all of you now…”

He shot her friends in the head and dropped the gun. He took out his knife and just as he was about to hop in her way–


–There was a shot “GCPD! You’re surrounded!

And then she realized. She didn’t even flinch. She still had a gun pointed at their direction. She was too shocked to do anything.

This is so stupid.

So stupid.

“Amazing job, Honey!”

Oh no.

No.

Stupid.

He did it on purpose.


One month later, Arkham Asylum

‘’[Y/N]! How is my favourite inmate doing?” said Jerome, squeezing her hard.

She pushed him off and didn’t say anything.

“Awww, c’mon Baby, you can’t possibly be still mad at me? I did it for our love!”

Great. Now she was stuck with him in this crazy place.

At least they had their love.. Right?

Just… wow. Holy crap.

Once upon a time, I had been the girlfriend of a one Draco Malfoy. We had been happy. Really happy. Of course, deep down I knew that it wouldn’t last. We were teenagers in the middle of world approaching a war and we were clearly on different sides. We never acknowledged it, but we both knew it. I wasn’t oblivious to Draco’s family history. He was related to people that were known death eaters and his father probably was one. He knew I didn’t share his opinions on muggle born witches and wizards, he knew I was close friends with Harry Potter and a number of other Gryffindors that he didn’t approve of, but we ignored all of it. A voice in the back of my mind told me that the heartbreak would only be worse the longer we stayed together.

The end of 2015 is near and I decided to rec my favourite fics of the year (which doesn’t necessarily mean that they were written in 2015 but that I’ve read them in this year). They’re 12, one for each month, I hope you’ll like them as much as I did.

Rating: Teen and Up Audiences
Details: 57k, 14 chapters, Merlin/Arthur
Summary: When Arthur is invited by the openly magical kingdom of Harmatia to form an alliance, the King is forced to reexamine his outlook on magic. But whilst an alliance could change the course of history, among the shadows a vengeful enemy plots to turn the two great kingdoms against each other and plunge Camelot into a devastating war. If only Merlin wasn’t having to deal with his growing feelings for Arthur at the same time…Merthur.
Comments:  Great OC characters, thrilling magic reveal and one of the best descriptions of battle I’ve ever read. And oh, the cliffhangers! (Thank you robintomybatman for the advice!)

- Time Forward by kianspo
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences
Details: 23k, one-shot, AU, Merlin/Arthur, Arthur/Gwen
Summary: While still at uni, Arthur Pendragon meets two people who become his best friends. He falls in love with one of them… but marries the other. This isn’t his story to tell; it’s Merlin’s. And Merlin will always remember that he met Arthur first.
Comments: I still have the chills. I wasted a whole night of sleep to read it. Is it enough to make you read it?

- A Heavy Heart to Carry by Thursday_Next
Rating: Mature
Details: 12k, one-shot, Merlin/Arthur
Summary: When Merlin is captured and injured, Arthur must face up to his own feelings for his manservant as well as the many secrets he discovers are being kept from him.

- Damsel in a Phone Booth by Blackwidina
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences

Summary: I was on Tumblr and found this AU prompt:
“it’s the middle of the night and i’m walking home alone in the dark and there’s this guy following me and he’s starting to gain on me and i found this phone booth with a lock on the door and i tried to call my best friend but my hands were shaking so badly i accidentally dialed the wrong number and i don’t even know you but help me” au And this was born. Enjoy!
Comments: Short, funny (even though there’s stalking involved) and absolutely worthy of your time.

- Falls the Shadow by Cookie
Rating:
Mature
Details: 47k, 4 chapters, Merlin/Arthur
Summary: The King is dead. Long Live the King. Camelot is Arthur’s now, and Merlin had believed they would achieve their destiny together. But when Arthur pulls away and betrays Merlin utterly, he goes to find the one person who understands his hurt the most.
Comments: Probably one of my favourites EVER. The first chapter simply destroyed me (I love angsty fics, sorry), in the second one I was so happy I could cry, it’s a rollercoaster of emotions. Highly recommended!


-This Silly Ol’ Dance is Perfect for Two
by SlantedKnitting
Rating: Explicit
Details: 80k, 4 chapters, AU, Merlin/Arthur
Summary: Arthur is young, gorgeous, talented, and captain of one of the best football teams in England; his life should be perfect. But he can’t keep a girlfriend for more than a few months, and it’s not just because he isn’t ready to settle down. When his most recent girlfriend dumps him, he has a rough night at the pub and has to be dragged home by his neighbour, Merlin. Merlin is an archivist, a Ph.D student, and he hates football almost as much as he hates Arthur. They both have their own reasons for not wanting to spend time with each other, but after that disastrous night, remaining silent neighbors doesn’t seem like much of an option anymore.
Comments: I wasn’t a fan of football!AUs, then I read this fic. Now, read this one and give me more football!AUs!!!


- Looking at you looking at me (sometimes it lasted love, but sometimes it hurts instead) by lunchee
Rating:
Teen and Up Audiences
Details: 7k, one-shot, AU, Merlin/Arthur
Summary: Arthur can’t let go. Merlin forgets.
Comments: If I had to choose my favourite, I’d probably pick this one. It’s just that I cant stop thinking about it, it completely broke my heart. (I told you that I love angsty fics!). But seriously, don’t read it if you’re sad/depressed, DON’T.

- Pining for the Moon
by EachPeachPearPlum
Rating: Mature
Details: 13k, one-shot, Merlin/Arthur
Summary: First, there is the rage, like nothing Arthur has ever known. It’s hot, hotter than anything, hotter than the kitchen ovens and the blacksmith’s forge and dragon’s breath. It fills him to the brim and carries on, washing over him in waves that scald, and, as Arthur looks around him at the carnage, the man at its centre, he has no idea how he is ever meant to let go of it.
“I can explain,” Merlin says, his eyes still blazing as he kneels there, charred by the fires he lit, blood on his hands. So much blood. “Arthur, sire, please, I can explain.”
First, there is the rage, and then there is a knife at Merlin’s throat.
Comments: It’s a…strange fic. I don’t know how to define it, but I liked it very much. It got me at “there is a knife at Merlin’s throat”.

- Fathom Me Out by supercalvin
Rating:
Teen and Up Audiences
Details: 21k, one-shot, Merlin/Arthur
Summary: After ten years, Arthur thinks he has Merlin all figured out. But as he watches Merlin, he finds out that he has more questions than answers. The longer he thinks about it, the more uneasy he feels. So he pushes it aside. Except, he can no longer ignore the questions he has about Merlin.
Not your everyday reveal!fic.
Comments: I think that everyone in this fandom knows this fic, but well, I didn’t, so it’s in this year’s rec. The author said it, not your everyday reveal!fic.

- IMPRINTING
by b92morgan for Lunaris Dies
Rating:
Explicit
Details: 145k, 28 chapters, Alpha-Omega!AU, Arthur/Merlin
Summary: Arthur Pendragon is what the dictionary defines as the perfect Alpha, except for one small detail: he hates Omegas. He does not intend to mate with one. Merlin Emrys is an Omega, different from the others: he hates Alphas. He does not consider even remotely bending his existence to the will of the dominant race.
Comments: I actually read it in italian because the author is italian, but, by the number of kudos and comments it has on AO3, I suppose that the translation is well made. If you love Alpha/Omega dynamics that’s the fic you should choose!

SPECIAL MENTION TO THE BROLIN FICS:

- We All Write Our Own Endings
by nu_breed
Rating:
Explicit
Details: 23k, one-shot, Bradley James/Colin Morgan
Summary: Five years ago after Merlin ended, Bradley headed for LA and success. Homesick and dissatisfied, he returns to the UK and a challenging film project, but he hadn’t banked on having to work with the last person he wanted to see: Colin.
Comments: The hottest sex scene ever. Bradley’s POV is exactly how I imagined it and I’ve lost the count of how many times I’ve read it

- The Art Of Sleeping With by nu_breed
Rating:
Explicit
Details: 6k, one-shot, Bradley James/Colin Morgan
Summary: Bradley isn’t gay. He’s just unnaturally obsessed with Colin’s sex life, is all. (contains Bradley/other, Colin/others)
Comments: Same author as before, in case you didn’t understand how much I love their works. And again, I’d give an award to them for the sex scenes.


Every fic is available on AO3. I hope the links work, in case they don’t send me a message.
Happy new year to you all!

Dads react to Tiger Shapeshifter dadsona :0? (Love ME some giant cats )

I love, love, love shapeshifter AUs. Next to Omegaverse, they’re my favourite, so writing this was a lot of fun! They all ended up a bit longer than usual. Mat’s scene was inspired (and based on) @daddy-hotline‘s robbery ask, but no one gets shot here. No bears were seriously injured writing this. - Mod Mare

🥃 “This is a stupid idea,” you say, for the umpteenth time. By now, you don’t expect a reply anymore and simply voice your protest so whoever’s in charge up there can note your unwillingness for this endeavour. But you can’t leave Robert on his own, in the middle of the night, following large paw prints leading deeper and deeper into the forest, either. You lower the phone on the ground so Robert can see where he’s going, paying close attention to your surroundings. Even in your human form, your hearing is a thousand times better than his, so when the sound of wood breaking comes from somewhere close by, you hear it, even if Robert doesn’t. “Stop! Robert, stop!“ Robert throws a glance over his shoulder, but doesn’t stop. “What, you got spooked by a squirrel?” Again, there’s a sound, loud enough for Robert to hear it too. He freezes; you see his grip on his knife tightening, knuckles white. “Stay behind m—“ A deafening roar, then, a large brown bear breaks through the thicket. It’s standing on its hind legs, sending drool flying everywhere. Robert stumbles backwards and lifts his knife-holding hand. “Y/N, whatever you do, don’t try to run. Back away slowly. I’ll cover your exit.”
“The hell you will.” Without second thought, you shift, clothes be damned. Muscles stretch and bones break in a matter of seconds. Letting out a loud roar, you push past Robert. Pale as chalk, he moves out of the way and stares as a tiger lunges at the bear and buries its teeth deep in the animal’s neck. The bear roars in pain. You let go, growl, and the bear runs off. Behind you, Robert says, “Holy shit”. You turn around to find him approaching you cautiously. He puts the knife away and reaches out. There is no fear in his eyes, only fascination as he puts a hand on your nose and runs his fingers up between your eyes up to your ears. “I found a cryptid.”

🍸 ‘Stop wriggling’, you try to convey, but unsurprisingly, Joseph doesn’t understand. He’s far too busy doing just that – wriggling, or rather, struggling to free himself from the tiger that got its teeth buried in his shirt, even though said tiger is doing its darndest to make sure he doesn’t drown. You’re still unsure just how it happened, but on a trip with Joseph’s yacht, the captain somehow managed to go over the railing and fall into the water. His body weight plus his wet clothes would have rendered any attempt to pull him up useless so you did the first thing you could think of: You shifted and jumped in after him. With a lot of clambering and scratching the coating, you manage to heave Joseph back on board. He scrambles away from you immediately, holding up his hands. “Good tiger… good kitty… don’t eat me please…” Joseph scans the deck, probably for something to protect himself with. “Y/N? Y/N! Where are you?!” You wave and give a tiger grin. He stares at you, looking very much like he was about to faint; he’s soaking wet and trembling badly. You try to think of what to do next, how to show him you’re no threat, but your thoughts are cut short when your nose starts tickling. A second later, you sneeze, a full-body shudder going through you. Joseph stares. You look away, doing the tiger equivalent of a human pout. Suddenly, Joseph starts to laugh. “It’s… it’s you,” he breathes out in surprise. “But… how? How is that possible? It’s you… only hairier.” With an indignant huff, you turn your back to him. When Joseph somehow manages to find that spot behind your ear on his first try, a pleased noise escapes your mouth, despite your intention to sulk. “Don’t sulk, Y/N,” he chuckles. “Thank you for saving me… could you… um, turn back again? I… we really need to talk. About. Well, that. I have so many questions—”

☕ It’s a lazy morning at the Coffee Spoon, just Mat and you, seeking a caffeine boost before your run with Craig. Things come crashing down within seconds. The jingle of bells alerts you to the arrival of a customer. Mat is halfway through his greeting when the man suddenly pulls out a gun, shouting demands. You’re frozen in shock and can only watch as Mat quickly empties what money he brought for change into the bag; as the robber takes in his measly gains and starts shouting, waving around his gun. It all happens so fast. You shift mid-jump, knock into the robber and send him flying on the ground. A shot rings through the air as the gun flies out of the robber’s hand. The bullet shatters the display case, but thankfully doesn’t hit anyone. You roar in the robber’s face and press your massive paw on his chest, press down until you hear the faint cracking sound of bones about to break. He’s sobbing, begging for mercy, but that falls on deaf ears. The only reason you don’t tear his throat out is Mat; Mat, who’s cowering behind the counter, breathing too fast and shallow. Without second thought you let go of the robber, who is too shocked to move, and shift back. “In and out, Mat, in and out. Just do as I do. Here,” you press his hand on your chest, “follow my lead. In and out. That’s it, baby, that’s it, you’re doing great.” Once his breathing slows down again, you call the police, who arrive within minutes. By then, you’re dressed in some of Mat’s spare clothes and hid the evidence, so the robber’s rambles about a tiger only make the officers think he’s high or insane. They take your statements, neither you nor Mat mention the tiger, and that’s it. You’re alone again. You don’t know where to begin, what to say, but Mat beats you to it. His strong arms wrap around you and he buries his face in your chest, sobbing. You return his embrace and sink down on the ground, pulling him into your lap.

🌹 Damien is at work, won’t be back until seven, and since Lucien is staying over at a friend’s place, you have the manor all to yourself. It’s been a while since you last transformed, but it’s still second nature to you. You welcome the ache of muscles as they shift, embrace the widening of your jaw, the sprouting of striped fur from your skin, and once your two limbs become four, you stretch. Not wanting to get any fur on the (probably very expensive) furniture, you head outside into Damien’s garden, which is a lot more interesting anyway. So many smells! You stay on the path, careful not to damage any of the flowers, but entertain yourself by chasing butterflies, scratching on a tree and napping in the setting sun. Your slumber comes to an abrupt end when someone screams. Confused, you startle awake and whip around. Damien is standing there staring at you, still dressed in his work clothes. Has it gotten so late already? You stretch and yawn, drawing another scream from your boyfriend. He’s still as a statue, not a muscle twitching, even as sweat forms above his brows. “Good tiger, you won’t hurt me, right? You wouldn’t like human meat, it’s nasty. Good tiger. Just… stay right where you are.” He takes a tentative step backwards towards the door. When you don’t attack, he takes another, then another. Slowly, as to not startle him, you sit up and walk up to him. Damien freezes. You sit down in front of him and reach up to poke him with a paw. His heart beats rapidly in his chest as you bump your head against it. You tilt your head and chuff, the closest thing you can make to a purr. Damien looks down into your eyes; you can see the exact moment he realises. “Y/N?” You chuff and bump him again. He stumbles with a surprised gasp and puts a hand on your head to steady himself. When he, after a few moments of hesitation, starts petting you, you make a delighted noise and close your eyes. Damien chuckles and scratches harder.

🎣 There’s a loud crashing noise, followed by a shout. It takes a few seconds for your brain to register that the shout came from Brian, but then you jump on your feet and run out into the backyard. The sight that presents itself to you causes your blood to run cold. The project Brian has been working on the last days lies broken, heavy panels of wood and stone piled in a heap of debris under which Brian is buried. You can only see his legs sticking out, the rest is hidden. “Brian!” You hurry over and try to pull off the pieces lying on top, but they’re too heavy for you to lift. At least you know he isn’t dead, as you can hear him call for you from underneath the heap. He’s probably asking you to call an ambulance, but that would take too long, something in the pile could shift and send everything crashing down, he might be crushed… You make your decision within seconds. “Hang on, Brian! I’m getting you out of there!” You efficiently strip down and throw your clothes aside. It’s been a while since you last transformed, but it’s still second nature to you. With the strength of a tiger, removing one piece of wood or stone after the other. At the sight of a tiger pushing off the wood on top of him, Brian screams. You put one of your paws on his face to shut him up. Once you’re done and Brian is free again, you take a few steps back. Brian sits up and takes one of the smaller panels to use it as a weapon. “S-stay back! Y/N! Y/N! Where are you? Y-you f-fucking t-tiger if you h-hurt him—“ Before he can work himself into a frenzy, you shift back. Brian’s mouth drops open. He looks from your clothes back to you, then at the debris, growing paler by the second. You open your mouth to explain, but Brian faints before you can.

👟 You’re not a werewolf, so there were no awkward conversations with Craig during college about why you disappear once a month, no stumbling into the dorm naked (not that that would have been out of the ordinary). He doesn’t know, but you feel like he should. A few days ago, he asked you to move in with him and you said there’s something you have to tell him first, so you wait until the girls are at Smashley’s place before you sit down together to talk. “What do you need to tell me, bro?” You look down to where he’s holding your hands in his and nervously wet your lips. There’s no easy way to let the cat out of the bag. “Showing you might be the best.” He follows you with his gaze as you stand up and strip. “Bro, I’ve seen you naked before, what are you up to?”
“You’ll see. Just… Craig, please don’t be scared.” Before he can talk and weaken your resolve with promises he might not be able to keep, you shift. One moment, there stood a man; now, there’s a tiger in Craig’s living room. He screams out in surprise and scrambles over the backrest of the couch to put it between you. “Holy shit. Holy shit, am I dreaming? Is this a prank?” Moving as slowly as you physically can, you round the couch and walk up to him. Craig flinches away from you, his eyes darting to the door, but he doesn’t run away even as you continue approaching him. You lie on the ground in front of him, belly up, and chuff. After standing still for several minutes, Craig gets on his knees and reaches out. As much as you want to, you don’t give into the instinct to catch his hand between your paws; you hold perfectly still, let him pet you and run his fingers over your belly. “My bro is a tiger. Here, kitty, kitty— Ouch!” He sucks on his finger, where you lightly scratched him. “I deserved that.” You chuff in agreement.

📖 Another sneeze courses through Hugo’s body. Wordlessly, you offer him a new tissue. “Are you sure you didn’t touch any cats?” Hugo asks, then sneezes again. You came home from a short trip to the forest where you shifted to get rid of some pent-up energy and within half an hour, Hugo was reduced to a sniffling mess. You’ve only seen his allergies act up once, when Damien forgot to switch clothes, and that gave him breathing problems, so this is a much milder, but still annoying reaction. Some of your fur must have gotten on your clothes when you shifted. “I’m sure, Hugo. I didn’t touch any cats.” That’s the truth, but you still feel bad. He can tell you’re withholding information, but he’s a teacher, he knows better methods than to ask. Instead, Hugo sniffles pathetically and sinks down into the couch, looking so sick and miserable, it hurts. You manage five more minutes, then you crack. “Okay. I can’t do this. There’s something you should know.” He has the decency not to look smug and simply raises an eyebrow as you climb off the couch and come to stand in front of him. “I’m going to have to show you.” You don’t bother stripping, but simply shift. Hugo drops his tissue and stares. To make yourself smaller and less intimidating, you curl up and rest your head on your front paws. Hugo sneezes again and lifts a hand to his forehead. “Can’t be fever-induced…” Carefully, he nudges you with his foot. You grumble and scoot a few inches to the side, out of reach. “It’s impossible… There’s no way… there would be records of something like that. But you’re here, you…” He makes a gesture you assume means transformed, then sneezes again. From the back of your throat a whine sounds. It’s your luck your boyfriend is allergic to cats and while tigers are only distantly related, your fur still affects him. You shift back and uncurl, stretching your naked legs from you. “I have so many questions,” Hugo says. This time, the sparkle in his eyes doesn’t come from the allergy.

OK, so let me tell you about my favourite character in Jojo part 4 who also has one of my favourite stands.

This actual cinnamon roll right here. Tonio Trussardi

Originally posted by teargrants

With this awesome stand right here. Pearl Jam.

Tonio travels the world to improve his cooking ability and during his training Pearl Jam manifested naturally. He is a natural stand user, not like Josuke who gained it through the Joestar bloodline or getting shot with the arrow like 95% of the stand users in this part. Seriously i think there are 2 maybe 3 stand users who developed their stands naturally in this part.

With this power he used it to heal and make his food even more delicious. Now one could say that hes using his stand to make his food addicting. But here’s the thing, Pearl Jams healing power is only as effective as the quality of the food. Tonio does make damn good food and Pearl Jam replaces all the bad stuff in the body with the damn good food.

Its like Crazy Diamonds ability to fix things but Pearl Jam is more of a stand that cures the body. It needs to be eaten so that it can replace all the bad cells with the ingredients Tonio uses. In a way that’s probably a more effective healing ability, but its not really good in a fight.

Which I like about Pearl Jam. This stand is meant to help people, how many stands out there are actually meant to help people? Sure the stand could probably damage the body as well as fix things. Which just adds to Tonio’s character. He doesn’t use this stand like that, he probably never considered it, not even a ‘what if’ in his mind.

Tonio is one of the rare stand users in all of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure who is saving the world without throwing a single punch and that’s why he’s my favourite.

Fanfiction Tips

Any aspiring fanfic writers out there? I just want to tell you guys a few things.

Don’t write for anyone but yourself. Sure, you can take requests, but only write about what you want to write about. Don’t try to be something your not.

Even if no one reads what you write, don’t stop. If it’s something that you really enjoy. It’s not about how many notes you get, or how many messages. It’s about writing what you love.

If you’re writing about a particular character, try to learn as much about them as you can. For instance, I know a lot about Eobard Thawne. He’s always been one of my favourite super villains and I know a few random facts. For instance, he changes the time line as much as, if not more than, Barry Allen. Seriously. It’s crazy.

If you’re writing about a real person, make sure your conscientious about them. They are real people, and we should be respectful of them.

Again, be yourself. If you want to write a 70 chapter long OC fic with the trashiest character in existance, then do it. If you’d prefer to write one shots, do that. As long as it makes you happy

Know the lines you shouldn’t cross as well. There are several touchy subjects you should avoid and some you shouldn’t even consider. Whatever you decide, make sure that it’s something you love.

I’m sorry if this sounds presumptuous or arrogant, but I just wanted to put out some tips if anyone wanted them.

Suicide squa--I mean, Skater Squad

Can we please please talk about how JJ sees his skating competitors in this scene?

I mean, it’s a representation of them in his mind. Yurio and Otabek are the closest and biggest, which ties in well with how JJ thinks because Yurio has been his biggest rival in his other tournaments (and he’s paid special attention to him), while Otabek (also a high scorer)’s jumps threw him off. As JJ comes onto the ice, Otabek’s soldier eyes are very noticed. 

So yeah, this little squad shot is in JJ’s head, which means that this is how he’s seeing his competition. I took a moment to laugh here during the (surprisingly) emotional internal breakdown. Seriously, they look like super-villains! Or serial killer tbh.

We got Yurio and Otabek. The soldier boys who definitely will kill you. Probably with their eyes.

Chris who looks like a mafia member that enjoys doing the family’s dirty work.

Pichit, the one that lost his mind. He will destroy all that you hold dear, and then take a selfie to commemorate the occasion. 

And my personal favourite, Yuuri! He looks a like murdering seductress. “Oh dear, did my flirtations give you false expectations?” he says sweetly as he cuts out your heart. 

I find it also interesting to note that although Chris’ performance is a hardcore eros, JJ visualised Yuuri in the more ‘seductive’ pose (and he’s also closer and bigger in this representation than Chris). I feel like that secretly shows that JJ saw Yuuri as more of a threat than he let on in Russia. 

Mina’s Monday Recs: Fanfic Writer Appreciation Day Edition

Well, I’ve kind of been preoccupied with other things, which meant unfortunately that I was away from my laptop for most of Fanfic Writer Appreciation Day. :/ But for me, every day is Fanfic Writer Appreciation Day, so I thought it would be a good idea to do something a bit different this week from my usual recs. This week is entirely dedicated to fanfic. I’ve wanted to do a shoutout thing for ages – to a bunch of amazing writers whose writing has literally made it easier for me to get up some mornings, and whose stories I wish more than anything could be canon. I should also probably preface this by saying that I’m sure I will probably miss someone, but know that if I’ve ever left you a comment on your work, it’s because your story was quality. And of course, you can as always tag me in stuff you want me to read :)

So, in alphabetical order (because I need things to be in some kind of order, haha – but absolutely not in any particular order of awesomeness, because, well, all these writers are amazing):

absentlyabbie – HOLY WOW, Abbie is talented. :D I did not realise until I read her Toliver fic that I even shipped them together, but after I read Discoveries, it was difficult for me to ever remember not shipping them. The way she writes is so fluid and gorgeous, and it is definitely because of her fic that Toliver has basically ruined my life. Just saying. :P 

alanna-the-lionheart – Her 2x23 missing moment fic is definitely one of the best characterised season 2 fics I’ve read. I love how beautifully the missing gaps in that episode were coloured in in No Going Back. Especially the bit when Felicity invites Oliver inside her apartment, hehe. :)

anonymous033 – Ahhhhh, the queen of all things Nyssara! Seriously, though, Sophie’s fic, Here, in This Room (nsfw), remains up there as one of my absolute favourite Arrow slash fics ever, for me. There isn’t nearly enough femmeslash out there, and when both Nyssa and Sara are so gorgeously and wonderfully characterised (not to mention the smut was HOT)… well, what’s not to like? Seriously, even if you’ve never read Nyssara before, you should totally give this one a shot because it is just that well-written. 

anthfan - Wellllll, what can I say about this amazing author that hasn’t been said already? She just gets Oliver and Felicity so beautifully. Whether it’s a small missing moment drabble from 3x08 (The Table) or a fully-fledged smutty kind-of AU (Devil’s Backbone), you can guarantee that it will packed with emotion and incredibly well-characterised Olicity goodness.

arrow-through-my-writers-block - There is something fabulous about reading season 4 spec fics - and not just because they feature CANON established Olicity. It’s also because, well, this author’s New Threads series (my faves are part 1 and part 3) does so brilliantly in tiding me over this hellish hiatus while also weaving in the details we’re slowly learning about the team at cons and so on.

aubvi - Ahhhh, carefree!Olicity and during their road trip, no less, is my absolute fave. Aubrey’s dialogue between my OTP is just fab - especially in this lovely drabble, Caught in the Rain. She is definitely my go-to when I want some Olicity road trip happy fic. :D

dettiot - Melissa is one of my favourite smut writers, and with good reason, too. I mean, check out Now Playing, Number 14 (nsfw). My favourite thing about this fandom is the way everyone grabs at things the cast do or say and incorporate it (rather deliciously, I should add) into fic, and this was no exception. And, you know, I am a SUCKER for road trip smut, hehe. 

dust2dust34 - OH GOD BRE. Behold another Olicity smut goddess! Literally, her fics kill me. Whether it’s a gloriously naughty 3x20 smutlet like this one (nsfw) which happens to be the first fic I read by Bre, I think, or the achey perfection that is Mutual Release (nsfw), this wonderful writer never fails to deliver - and not just in terms of the sexytimes. Her writing is also just so beautiful.

effie214 - GAH. I don’t know how she does it, but literally everything Effie writes is pure poetry. Take come let me show you where life begins, for instance. Her style is so incredibly lush and beautiful and ARGH. And as if that wasn’t enough to ruin my life on its own, her tag fics are also just things of beauty. This one (nsfw) remains my favourite, just because you can never really get enough of Oliver going down on Felicity, imho. :D

gnimaerd - Duuuuuude. Sinceriously, I don’t even know what to say about this amazing author’s writing - except that SHE LITERALLY WRITES ALL THE THINGS I LIKE. Talk about being the queen of all things femmeslash! I could go on and on about her beautiful Olicity fics too, but I will focus for now on her gorgeous (and HOT) Nyssara fic, New Scars (nsfw) which quite literally took my breath away and made me realise how much I love Nyssara. And then there’s this amazing Laulicity fic called Distraction Techniques that does such a brilliant job on exploring Laurel’s character when she’s at her weakest. And of course, Laurel is my darling and there isn’t nearly enough fanfic out there with her in it - much less paired with another woman.

hopedreamlovepray - God, I ADORE how introspective this author’s fics are - to the point that I literally feel like I am in Felicity’s head when reading anything by her. Case in point: this wonderful fic set during 2x08, Just a Dance, which is a great homage to one of my favourite Olicity episodes in season 2 and, I think, a turning point for Oliver in terms of his characterisation. And then there’s this rather sexy fic that is the perfect domestic!Olicity story, Hanging Pictures and is another one of my favourite season 4 spec fics.

jedichick04 - Ahh, Rachel’s characterisation is always spot-on - whether we’re talking about Oliver, Felicity, Diggle or even Slade. I particularly love the funny lines she gives Felicity. In Where There’s Smoak, I was reminded why the timeline of Arrow Season 2.5 is known as the Summer of UST. I nearly spat out my tea laughing when Felicity says (entirely platonically, of course) “You look hot” to Oliver. :D And I have also been loving the stuff she’s produced for the Arrow Summer Rewatch, such as Workouts and Wisdom, which is such a fab missing moment in season 2. I love it when Oliver and Felicity talk things out. <3

juliesioux - I’ve said before that fanfic poetry doesn’t get nearly enough recognition in the fandom, and poems like this one really make me wish I could have that way with words. Such prettiness. Not to mention unaðurwhich is quietly sexy along with being really well-written. (Don’t be put off by the fact that the title is in another language, btw - the actual fic is in English, but I like how the author has used Icelandic words for her titles.)

lostolicityscenes - The author of these wonderful scenes deserves a medal. I adore the script format and the unique way these lost Olicity scenes play out. The Apartment is probably my fave. So much lovely Olicity banter, and as usual, the funniest Freudian slips by Felicity. :D

louiseblue1 - Lou is such a great writer! My favourite is definitely the Unexpected series. I love love love road trip fics, as I’m sure is obvious, and this little series was wonderful. Even though there were definitely angsty moments in it, and some serious Joliver tension in places, too, that angst contrasted beautifully with the much lighter moments. I still giggle at Barry the duck, to this day. ;)

machawicket - AHHH. Macha’s OlicitySpotting story (Hiking is Stupid) remains one of my absolute favourite fanfics based on that ridiculously feels inducing photo Stephen shared with us a while back. Just. WOW. And, actually, it was because of Macha that I even know what the term OlicitySpotting means, haha. I LOVE seeing how outsiders view Olicity and almost always think relationship goals. And then there’s this lovely domestic!Olicity fic which begins with the line “Why are you holding my underwear?” that had me squeeing until I was pretty sure my heart burst with the feels.

quiveringbunny - What would a rec list be without Lisa on it? To this day, The Dark Hours still gives me chills when I reread. I probably have already said I have a thing for missing moments, but especially from 2x23, and this was another excellent one. And one of my favourite things about this fandom is how so many of the amazing authors out there - which includes Lisa - are able to get Felicity’s babbling and lengthy internal monologue down to a tee.

seetheskyaboveus - Whoaaa. Her smut is legendary. I mean, check out Mission: The Wedding Night (nsfw). The author apologised for it being so long, but I LOVED IT. The only thing better than smut featuring my OTP is when the smut is plotty. :D

skcolicity - So there are fics that you enjoy, and there are fics that you squee over and there are fics that you giggle about because really you shouldn’t be reading it in public. And then there are fics like A Moment of Grief, which are so very well-written and stay with you because of how close to home it was. It’s angsty, for sure, but if you’re looking for a fic that addresses mental illness that imo Oliver is likely to suffer from, this is the one. At any rate, it stayed with me for a long time - well after I had finished reading it.

supersillyanddorky06 - Holy shit. That is what I say most of the time when I’ve finished something of Matty’s. I first caught sight of her work when the MTV Reblogs were happening - her Things They Learn series was sosososo good. Such a fabulous exploration of my OTP. And then I came across Underwear - the Door to Opportunities and nearly bust a gut laughing because what a wonderful and lightly naughty fic! It was after reading this fic that I realised how much I was missing out on all the alternate first meeting fics out there. Still, this one is definitely one of the best AUs I’ve read. Especially when it includes my darling Tommy.

susannahmccormick - Holy road trip gorgeousness, Batman! It’s great that we as a fandom use the scraps of info given to us in the hellatus as fic inspiration, and Ceci n’est pas un conte is a great example of that. (I’m assuming this was based on what Stephen said about when he thought Oliver realised he was in love with Felicity… if not, Susannah is obviously a psychic, lol.) There is so much lovely banter between them that I absolutely adore. This is one of those must read road trip fics. 

theshipsfirstmate - Yet another wonderful author of amazing road trip fic. My fave of the series is probably Pack Light, just because of all the tiny details the author picked up on - like the earrings and the Porsche and the dress. And there is such a beautiful, understated sexiness to each fic that I think is just the best.

thevegantargaryen - Okay, I will be honest. I literally only just discovered this author this morning, but my GOD am I glad I did. I am super excited for Sara to come back, however briefly, to Arrow verse, and the way that was explored with a couple of characters in the following drabbles was just fab. For instance, this Nyssara fic has such a unique take on Sara in a way that, for me, totally fits the more mystical mood season 4 is supposed to have. And then I came across this Canarrow fic that literally had me wailing. I’m an Olicity shipper through and through, but I LOVE the Canarrow dynamic and the haunting style of this fic still gives me chills now.

wagamiller - AHHHH. I first came across this delightful author around the time of us getting those 3x20 promos, when she wrote this spec fic called The Eye of the Storm (nsfw). Just. UGH. So many feels as Oliver and Felicity go for round two. :D And then there was this amazing fic, you’re the one that I want, which was delicious in an entirely different way - I’ve fantasised a lot about Oliver and Felicity being on his Ducati before, and MAN was there serious UST in this! There was so much in this fic that made me squee.

yespleasehawkeye - And while we’re on the topic of UST… check out Captivation. I absolutely love the way this author writes. She has such a way with words that I end up reading her fics again and again. The best thing is the way she writes established!Olicity - there is always such a gorgeous familiarity between them and their interactions. And obviously I love it when Felicity teases Oliver. :D And her smut is beautiful. One in Ten (nsfw) is just so incredibly well-written. Sure, it’s angsty, and with some delicate subject matter, but it was also handled and addressed really well. And the smut was gorgeous. I was sobbing by the end of it. You probably will too.

Good Lord, this is a long post. I’m sure I’ve missed people, and for that, I apologise. But if I have ever left you a comment on AO3, or  reblogged/liked your work, or if I’ve recced something of yours before, then that means I think you’re amazing - just as much as everyone on this list. Keep writing, keep reading and keep commenting/reccing/reblogging so all the fanfic writers out there get the recognition they deserve! And if you haven’t already, be sure to follow these fabulous people and leave a comment on their works.

Spread the love, as always, my lovelies. <3

(Also, apologies if you got notified twice. I tried editing something and the whole post messed up, so I had to go through and re-type things. Sorry.)

Recs from last week

My fics

laboria  asked:

Hi! I basically have nothing to say but I just wondered how were you doing. I hope your days are going well and you are happy. I am sry if it’s too random. I am a huge fan of your fanfics (one-shots and THE LOVE OF MY LIFE IKYSS) and wanted check on how my favourite was doing. I am so sorry for my awkwardness. Have a nice day, bye! P.S: thank you for fulfilling my lyvia, gajuvia, gruvia, silvia, urvia & ultearvia (and so on) needs

Hey! This is so sweet of you, and totally just made my day.

I’m doing okay, I won’t say everything’s been perfect (Had a crazy allergic reaction this week that was just like… wft?) but over all I’m doing good.

Please don’t feel you need to apologize, this is not too random and I love hearing from fans of my writing! I’ve actually been writing up a storm since it’s Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) and I’m looking to finish IKYSS entirely before November is up.

Hope you have a great day too! And you’re totally welcome. I’ve edited two out of six scenes for chapter 25 and will do my best to post it in the next few weeks. <3

Fanfiction Recommendations

I read a lot of fanfiction, and it’s sometimes a chore to browse through hundreds of stories in AO3, Fanfiction.net and Tumblr to find the best ones.

So I did a thing, and compiled a list of some of my favourite fics to share with you guys. My preferences usually lie on the novel length stories, as I appreciate a good plot with well-written characters. I have also included some of my favourite one-shots/short fics.

Enjoy :)

Loki


- Bend Around the Wind by Scyllaya (Loki/Tony Stark): Brilliant FrostIron fic, where Loki and Tony need to team up to survive. Excellent character development and story arc with some seriously hot sexy times. Best (FrostIron) fic I have read. Rating: Explicit.

- A Morbid Taste for Ice by Sitehound (Loki/Darcy Lewis): Funny murder mystery with patented Darcy banter and brooding but funny Loki. One of the best versions of Loki I’ve read. Rating: Mature

- To Be Redeemed by my2browneyes (Loki/Captain America): Steve finds a new side to himself. Intriguing and heartbreaking look into Loki’s family situation. Very heavy on BDSM. Dark!Loki. Rating: Mature (Explicit)

- Tricks of the Trade by Like_a_Hurricane (Loki/Tony Stark): Banter, sexy times and mayhem ensue when Loki and Tony get together to save the day. Rating: Mature.

- Accepted by Arkada (Loki/Tony Stark): Loki wants sex, and who is Tony to say no to a hot God of Mischief. Not much plot, but plenty of banter and suitably horny FrostIron. Rating: Explicit.

Adventures in Babysitting, Mischief Managed, Trouble Lurking by startraveller776 / cimmerianwish (Loki/Jane): Hilarious one-shots of Jane trying to manage one God of Mischief. One of my favourite versions of Mischievous Loki. Rating: T.

Tom

- Bromance: a Hiddlesworth Story by though (Tom/Chris): Wonderfully awkward and hot story of what happens when Tom and Chris give it a try. Because Elsa told them to! Rating: Explicit.

- A Change of Honors by winterlive (Tom/Hadley Fraser): What happens when there is a hot man-kiss in Coriolanus and Tom is curious. “I have no boundaries”. Rating: Explicit.

- Don’t Try This at Home by PeachyLana (Tom/Kat): Tom and Kat revisit their sexy times. Banter during sex. Rating: Explicit.

- Stray Not From Me by furiedheart/mi-delirio-es-el (teen Tom/Chris): A surprise find for me, very AU. Superbly written story of BabyHiddles and equally young Chris. A love story with some sweet (and very hot) explorations into sex. Also some very dark stuff with non-con elements. Rating: Explicit.

- Masquerade, the Joy of (Writing) Sex by losille2000 (Tom/OFC): It’s complicated. Brilliant OFC and someone needs to knock some sense into Tom. What are you to do when hot Professor!Tom wants to help you with your writing. One of the best writers I’ve encountered so far. Rating: Mature

- The Table, The Secret Blowjob, Take Two by laterovaries (Tom/OFC): A set of one-shots, if you get hot and bothered with the idea of Tom having (semi)public sex. Rating: Mature.

Cheating in all Directions

Harry

You had decided to surprise him at the hotel. You really had missed him and your last phone call was a bit spotty so you simply jumped a plane over to the country they were in and explained to the front desk, courtesy of one of the management guys walking by, you were able to get a key. Management had told you he was in his room, and you giggled, the elevator ride taking way too much time. You enter the room, “CURLY-” You were cut short when you smelt the sex in the room, but not only smell but hear it.  You ventured further and watched Harry pile driving into some girl. She was skinnier, prettier, big fake boobs, and she was screaming out in ecstasy. He stops mid moan and pulls out, “Oh shit.” Harry’s eyes were wide, you were the last person he was expecting. You were supposed to be in Beverly Hills, at the house… Harry was supposed to be free to fuck and tour. You turn on your heel and the girl looks up, “That’s her?” She asks, her accent faint. “That’s me.” You yell, flipping them both off. You and Harry had a public relationship. This bitch knowingly went into it. Harry chases after you, holding himself, “Y/N! Wait!” You turn around and slap him sharply across the face, “You disgust me. I waited for you.” You turn and leave the room and go home, tears tracing down your cheek.

Liam

You’d never thought that this would happen to you, not once, but here it was, plain as day on your computer screen. Liam was fucking a girl from behind in the hotel room. You two had been Skyping but you fell asleep and you would think he would turn it off… Liam obviously forgot to do so. The girl was screaming out his name and you knew that was one of your favourite positions and so did Liam. Fucker. You waited until they both cum and are laying on bed, panting. “Well that was quite the show.” You had wiped away your tears and glared at the computer screen. “Can’t say I enjoyed it though…” You say seriously. Liam shot up, “Y/N?” He says panickedly. Oh god, he loved you, he did. But you two were having your issues and even on breaks, you weren’t fucking and it really really bothered him and you but mainly him. “Yup! That’s my name! It’s time to forget it.” You give him a deadpan look and ended the call. Your phone was going off with texts and calls, emails, all of it, all day. But you ignored all of it, while you packed the flat, moving back in with your old roommate. Next to do on your list, change all your information

Zayn

You and Zayn had been together for awhile now… But something was off, the phone calls get shorter and Skype calls had been getting pushed off. He came home less and less on break. Your phone buzzes and you see the emojis after his name and a smile lit up your face. You open up the text and warmth grows in your stomach as you take in his harden dick. “Thanks for the tits, here’s my body’s reaction😉”. You stare at the text, your heart shatters. You never sent him tits nothing… The worst has been confirmed. It was the nagging thought-but it was true. He was cheating. That much was true. “And here’s my body reaction to that.” You sent him a picture of you flipping off the camera and you turned off your phone. Zayn gets the text and his stomach dropped. You tried to call you but it went straight to voice mail. He knew he was distancing himself not on purpose but as he met more girls the more easily he did. He left one heartbreaking phone call, “Y/N… It wasn’t supposed to end like this… I do-did?- love you.” Zayn chews his lip before hanging up.

Louis

Dating one of the five most famous boys in the world kept you on your toes for sure. You had learned to ignore the million rumours that seem to crop up over and over again. And you were lucky to have your time with him now. He had taken an early shower and his phone had woken you up. A girl-half naked-showed up on the screen as the contact photo, the name was unfamiliar to you and you answered it without saying anything, “Ah daddy! I’ve missed that big cock!” She giggles, “This is the umpteenth time I’ve called! Are you still with Y/N?” Your heart sank. Oh god. “Lou?” She asks. You hang up and threw his phone across the room, having it crash and shatter. Louis walked out of the bathroom-towel around his waist, “What the bloody hell was that?” You stand up, glaring him with tear filled eyes. “Who is she?” He looks at you amazed, “She?” “Fucking Tiffany!?” You scream. The blood drains from his face, “Y/N…” “No no. Fuck you!” You yell, running out of the room, grabbing your purse and his keys. You run out and he chases you but can’t leave the flat because he’s just in a towel. “I’m sure Tiffany will take care of you just fine.” You slam the door and go. Louis sighs and shakes his head. He just lost the girl of his dreams playing chase with others.
