So here’s the little video I got while at Cymbeline of Raul singing. The ushers were super super serious about not having phones out so that’s why it’s been so hard for everyone to get footage or photos but I secretly shot this little beauty. Sorry it’s not that great.
Of course seeing Raul again was incredible (and seeing his feet in flip flops is even more magical in real life) but the best part was getting to see the show with rauligan and grassysvu67! These two are the best Raul friends anyone could ever ask for. At the parts when he was on stage, we were grabbing each others arms because we couldn’t even handle it. rauligan totally drooled on her playbill, I don’t even care I’m putting it out there. grassysvu67 yelled out “come on!” when Raul got slapped during the play. I, of course, was calm, cool, and coll…just kidding I unf’ed the whole time, it was embarrassing, people stared.
I think what Shakespeareinthepark meant was more of a general 'let us not be assholes to each other because of differences nobody chose anyway' rather than 'let us ignore that there are problems'?
Maybe Im jaded from too many years on this hellsite, but 99% of the time someone pulls out the “dont be mean to white straight men for being white and straight and men, its not their fault!” What they are really saying is “people criticizing white supremacy, homophobia, and racism in tangible and measurable ways makes me uncomfortable, so stop it.”
** Funny That Way by LuvaGoodMrE This fic is very well written, but also very eccentric. All the characters are slightly wackier versions of themselves in the sense that their traits are emphasised and enlarged, like a worded caricature. Bottom line is, this is one of the most popular tasertricks fics for a reason, and that is the simple eccentricity of it.
* Redemption by GoldSilver02 This fic is amazingly written. I especially love the bracketed commentary. It’s written in a unique style caught somewhere in between casual and poetic. The plot behind this is simple but the concepts it takes you through are deep and phonological. Staring contests, chaos and the end of the world.
** Stolen by WorstPenNameEver Told from Darcy’s point of view, this fic is goddamn poetry with avid descriptions and engaging plot. Taking place during the avengers, Darcy is revived by Loki for inexplicable reasons but suffers from amnesia. Loki wants to use her to gather information about Jane which would obviously be hard to do with the amnesia.
Seven Days to Home by AllIsButToys All human AU in which Loki is just Tom with a generous sprinkling more sass. Well paced and fluffy, this is a good read overall.
Beautiful Lies by lokishorcrux This fic has a very captivating plot. Its well paced and dives straight into the plot from the first chapter. Thor plops Loki with SHIELD and him and Darcy get inexplicably bound together by magic.
* Ink And Parchment by The Goddess Of Art This is a fast paced fic that picks up immediately on the first chapter. It’s written eloquently and poetically with vivid imagery that is really amazing. Loki falls to Midgard (er…earth) and into Darcy’s care… And destroys her furniture.
* Woven by BonGarland This is a hella damn awesomesauce good story. It’s told from Darcy’s perspective and jumps from past to present to tell the story of Loki and Darcy’s relationship. With a very unique style of story telling and an astounding plot, this fic is stellar. Currently, Darcy is old, sick and dying. Her daughter Alice catches Loki’s attention and maybe, just maybe, they can help revive Darcy.
Forever and A Day by her-little-musings Darcy goes to Jane (read: SHIELD) for a job after college. Loki seeks redemption by serving the very organisation he despised during New York. The two meet and sushi and drinks get involved.
I Don’t Like You by PeachyLana Filled to the brim with snarky banter that leads to eventual smut comprising of kinda hate sex. So Darcy and Loki are both turned on by sassy arguments.
Magical Incompleted Multi-Chapters: Note: since these are incomplete, I will not review/ rate them. You are welcome to read them and join me in the hell of waiting and praying for updates
You Don’t Need to be Immortal by mispatch Angst Beautifully written and terribly sad. How one manages to shatter feels in a oneshot I do not know. Tasertricks wedding… with a dark twist.
Homonyms by mnemosyne23 This is not even a one-shot. Its like a drabble or a flashfic but its really good and I loved it. Its witty and sweet and smutty and angsty at the same time. I love the concept of this. (features Fosterson and Clintasha)
** A Pen and Darcy Lewis by molescout ABSOLUTE ADORABLENESS! So Loki and Darcy have a not exactly kinda maybe friendship via notebook communication and it eventually escalates into the ancient “asking out” ceremony.
When Duty Calls by Advena Not really tasertricks centric. This fic focuses on a day in the life of Nick Fury dealing with Tasertrick’s shenanigans.
** Showering In The Rain Of Faces by LxIsxJustice Fluffy smut Darcy invites Loki to join her for a shower. This fic is so poetic and beautiful and is one of my favourite on ff.net. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and sexy and sentimentality.
* In Cold Blood by bs13 This fic is absolutely horrible I don’t know why anyone would write this (go read it). Its really dark and angsty and ITS SO TERRIBLE WHYYYYY. The writing is incredibly fluid and enrapturing. The short storyline is a tasertricks shipper’s nightmare. It’s brilliant.
** So It Goes by her-little-musings Deep, deep, abyss dark angst This fic is so horribly, artfully written, I can’t help but want to revel in the fluidity of the words and vibrant imagery. Yet the plot is despairingly bittersweet and ughhhh. Just, why can’t you use your silken words to create something that doesn’t make me die inside? (Sarah-speak translation: I loved it)
~to be updated as new works arise~ note: I’m not really that active on ff.net so it would be very much appreciated if you could message me any amazeballs fics that I missed out or you think belong on this list. thank you <3
