Baby Love

A Love Story is Better With You: Baby Love - One Shot Series #5

-

Your morning had begun slowly. You had woken up to a cold mug of tea sitting by your bedside, with a little note, scribbled with Harry’s handwriting. 

Morning my love, had to pop out to the grocery store, was going to make breakfast, and realized we didn’t have eggs among other things. I should be home soon, love you x -H

You sighed, leaning against the headboard, with a steady groan, placing a palm on your belly giving it a soft rub. “You better come soon, little bub. Mumma can barely move with you being so low” you chuckling, feeling a soft kick. 

You grabbed your tea, taking a small sip, letting the cool liquid sooth your dry throat, before slowly swinging your legs over the bed,resting on the floor and waddling to the bathroom, to use the toilet and brush your teeth. 

-

You were making your way down your stairs slowly, when you heard the front door close, and Harry’s head popped into the foyer. 

“Oh, you’re up! Good morning gorgeous” he smiled, waiting for you to reach the bottom of the staircase before pecking your lips. 

You chuckled dryly, before peeking into the brown grocery bags he held in his hands, fingers curling around the handles of the bag.

“Not feeling that gorgeous this morning, but thank you” you softly smiling, following him into the kitchen as you placed a hand on your hip, giving it a soft rub, while trying not to show your discomfort. 

“You alright? How’s our little girl?” he smirked, pulling all the groceries out the brown bags, and placing the things that needed to be in the fridge, in the fridge along with other things in the cupboard. 

“Backs just been playing up, feels really sore” you whispered, feeling a strange pain make it’s way down your back.

“And who said it was a girl?” you retorted. 

“Fathers Intuition. Hasn’t to be a real thing, hmm?” he questioned and you clicked your tongue and nodded, just to wipe that smirk off his face. 

“Mhm, alright, whatever you say, mister.”

-

You were sitting on the couch, snuggled into Harry with your feet planted up on Harry’s thighs as he softly rubbed them and kept his eyes focused on the telly, as Friends was playing reruns. 

You suddenly closed your eyes, scrunching up your nose as a sharp pain made it’s way down your back and you winced through your teeth.

Harry’s brows furrowed, hands quickly stopping their movement on your feet and calves thinking he had hurt you.

“You sure you’re all right?” he questioned, sitting up more firmly, eyeing you suspiciously.

“Yeah, it was just this weird pain, I’ve never felt it before” you whispered, wiping your eyes as the tears suddenly appeared out of no where and you chuckled. 

“I don’t even know why i’m crying”

He chuckled, leaning over kissing your forehead before standing up and cleaning up your two dirty mugs that were finished with tea.

-

The pains had died down for about an hour, but they came back when you decided to lay down on your bed to take a small nap, tiredness hooding your eyes.

Crap” you winced, sitting up straight and pressing a palm to the bottom of your back.

“Harry?” you called, hoping he had heard you. 

“Harry?!” you whimpered out, eyes closed trying to focus on your breathing as tears coated your eyes. 

You had gotten up, just about to look for Harry as he stormed into the room.

“Hey, hey. You alright?” he cooed, making his way over to you, wiping at your wet cheeks as he pressed your head into his chest. 

“It hurts so bad” you whimpered.

“Are you sure you don’t want me to call the midwife, you’ve been having these pains for a while, maybe you’re going into labor-”

You moaned lowly, leaning your head against the his chest, putting up your hand in attempt to get him to shush, and hush he did, as you swayed your hips back and forth.

“No, there isn’t a point!” you shouted suddenly, wiping the sweat off your forehead with the back of your hand as you swayed your hips back and forth.

It seemed that your sudden outburst had him push back a little and guilt immediately sat heavy on your chest. 

“I’m sorry” you whispered. “I didn’t mean to shout, it just hurts so bad, and I didn’t mean to and now I feel bad-” you rambled, but he shook his head, bringing you closed to him again before pressing his lips to your forehead.

“Nothing to apologize for my love” he reassured.  

You sniffled with a nod.

“It’s just, my water hasn’t broken, and they won’t admit me unless it has” you panted, suddenly feeling that pain creep it’s way down your back and through belly. 

“Oh, shit” you panted. 

Harry kept his place, right where he was as you leaned against him, swaying your hips back and forth. 

“That’s good, just like that.” he praised, hearing your pant through the contraction.

You tearfully nodded, as he pressed a kiss to your forehead. 

“I’m just so scared.” you whispered, shakily and he nodded. 

“Me too, and that’s okay” he whispered, bringing you close, and rubbing your back. 

“Leave me to be scared. You have nothing to be afraid of, you’re going to be safe. I’m right here. Let me be worried for the both of us” 

You nodded, sniffling against him as another sharp pain was making it’s way down your back and you squeezed your eyes shut, biting into his shoulder. 

“Breath with it” he spoke again softly into your ear, leading by example by ushering a few breaths and you followed. 

“There you go” he whispered with a gentle smile. 

You smiled, leaning your forehead against his shoulder. 

“Can you imagine if we actually had our baby today?” you whispered, looking up at him with a tired smile. 

“We’d finally get to meet our little bean” you sniffled, wiping at your eyes. 

“I cannot wait” he gushed. 

You smiled, wiping at your wet eyes, when a sudden feeling made it’s way in between your legs. 

“Baby, did you just pee your pants?” he chuckled. “Not that it’s bad or anything, we could clean it up-”

Your eyes went wide, looking down, seeing a small pool of liquid between your two feet. 

“I didn’t pee myself Harry. I think my water just broke” you let out, heart starting to race. 

His eyes went wide for a second, face going pale. 

“W-What?” he stuttered. “Are you sure you didn’t just pee yourself?”

“Harry!” you whimpered vulnerably, swatting at his chest as your back began to ache again and you groaned. 

“Right, okay. okay. Your water broke” he spoke out again, mostly to just get the realization to sink in that today, the two of you would finally be having your baby. 

He quickly grabbed his keys, and slipped on his shoes, quickly slipping on your flats for you, and helping you down the stairs.

“Okay, let’s go” he ushered, helping you out to the foyer and towards the door. 

“Bag” you panted with closed eyes. “Hospital bag”

Right, yes! Hospital bag” he checked, looking around and remembering you had it placed next to your night stand, in the bedroom. He quickly darted back up the stairs, skipping each step before barging into the room, heart pounding and grabbing the bag and slinging it over his shoulder and running downstairs. 

“Got the bag, now lets go have ourselves a baby” he whispered, getting a soft smile from your and a kiss to your cheek. 

-

You waddled your way out the hospital bathroom, in your hospital robe, and had the nurse help you tie the strings in the back. 

“How do I look?” you softly joked, giving him a small spin, as you wiggled your toes in your warm socks, since the hospital floors were pretty chilly. 

“So sexy” he smirked, planting a soft kiss on your lips and helping you into the bed. 

“How are your contractions?” he checked, eyeing you but the nurse interrupted. 

“Very good, about 3 to 4 minutes apart, which is good. Soon they’ll be getting closer. She’s a good 6 centimeters dialed, the last time I checked, so your little baby could be here any time soon” she smiled. 

“Do you know the gender?” she questioned, looking at the computer, to fill in updated information. 

“No, we decided we’d like to keep it a surprise” Harry smiled, stroking the hair off your forehead and smiling down at you. 

Oh, that’s excited” she gushed. 

“Although, he is pretty adamant that it’s a girl” you chuckled, looking up at him with an eye roll. 

“Claims it’s his fatherly intuition”

“Well, we’ll just have to see in a matter of a couple hours hopefully, if he’s right” she smiled, jotting down a couple more notes into your binder of information and putting it away.

“Alright, i’ll be back in a couple hours to check how you’re progressing, maybe sooner if your little bub decides to speed up the process a bit” she chuckled, excusing herself and leaving the room. 

-

“I don’t know if I could do this anymore” you whispered, shaking your head from side to side as the tears slid down your cheeks. 

“Harry I can’t do it. I can’t push” you panted, as he swept the tears off your cheeks. 

“Yes you can baby, I know you can” he whispered, focusing his eyes just on you as the nurses and midwife began to situate everything in place, and begin to get ready for the process of getting you to push. 

“I’m so scared” you whispered, fright lacing your voice, and in this very moment, Harry felt heartbroken. 

Heartbroken because as much as he wanted to help you, he knew there was nothing he could do. He couldn’t take the pain away for you, he couldn’t do the pushing for you, he couldn’t do anything. The only thing he could do was be right by your side and encourage you and let you know that he was there. 

“Look at me” he whispered, beyond all the commotion. “Baby, look at me.” he repeated, placing a hand on your cheek to gain your full attention. 

“I know you can do it, and I know you’re scared, but you are so strong. The strongest woman I know. It’ll be a little bit of pushing and then we’ll finally see our little bub, the one we’ve been waiting for on months” he smiled. “I’m going to be right here beside you. You’re not alone. There’s no need to be scared, I’ll be scared for the both of us. You just take a deep breath and do what you do best, be strong” he whispered, pressing a kiss to your forehead. 

“I’m right here, and I love you”

You sniffled, nodding your head, quickly knuckling at your eyes. 

“I love you too, Harry”

-

“Alright sweetie, you ready to start pushing?” you midwife questioned with an excited smile. 

“As ready as i’ll ever be” you replied, with a nervous chuckle. 

“Alright, well follow your body. When you feel the need to push, just do it. Follow what your body tells you to do” she explained, and you nodded. 

Seconds later, you felt a contraction start to come along and the sudden urge to push, was greater then ever. 

“Perfect!” she encouraged. “Just like that, you’re doing beautifully!” she smiled. 

“You’re doing so well baby, i love you” Harry smiled, stroking the hair out your face and gently patting it with a cool towel. 

“Alright, one more time!” the nurse encouraged, grabbing onto your knee and counting down from ten, as you pushed with everything you had in you.

-

“I can’t!” you panted, slumping back, forehead all wet with sweat, tears rolling down your cheeks. 

“I can’t do it. I can’t” you whimpered uselessly as Harry nodded his head. 

“I know baby, I know you’re tired, but you’re so close” he whispered, with hope in his voice. “Our bub is only minutes away from getting here. You can do it, I know you can” he reassured, squeezing your hand tightly. 

You felt another rush of a contraction make it’s way through your body, as you pushed as hard as you could. 

“Agh, bloody hell!” you shouted. 

“That’s beautiful! The head is out, would you like to see?” she questioned, with a smile. 

You nodded, quickly, as Harry did as well and she brought out a mirror. 

“Oh my!” you croaked, tears streaming down your face. 

“Oh baby, look at all that hair” Harry croaked, tears streaming down his face, voice rattled with tears. 

“Alright, now all i’m going to need from you for right now, is to pant. You’re going to want to push, but don’t. This is the part where the shoulders are going to come out. You may feel a burning sensation, but don’t push, I don’t want you to tear. So when you feel your next contraction come, just pant” she explained. 

Harry stayed close next to you, one hand around your shoulders as his other hand was tightly in yours for you to squeeze at any moment needed. 

“Oh, shoot!” you groaned, panting through gritted teeth, as you felt a burning sensation. 

“That’s beautiful, just like that, shoulders are almost out!” she cheered, doing what she had to do. 

“Agh, it burns!” you cried, moving your head into Harry’s shoulder, trying to withhold a scream. 

“Alright!” the midwife edged on happily. “Here we are!” she called out happily, as the baby slid out and you released a sigh of relief as she placed the baby on your chest, as the baby wailed loudly. 

It’s a boy!” the nurse called out. “7:48 PM” another nurse called out, noting the time of his birth. 

“A boy?” you breathed, shocked and overwhelmed. 

“Oh my goodness, we have a boy!” Harry exclaimed, tears rolling down his cheeks as he pressed a soft kiss against your lips. 

“Oh my gosh” you cried. “You’re so beautiful” you croaked wetly, swiping a finger down his chubby cheek as you sniffled. 

“Oh my, hey little guy” Harry breathed. 

“Oh sweetheart, you did so well. I’m so proud of you.” Harry grinned, cheeks wet but eyes holding such an amount of love and pride, you just couldn’t help but smile. 

-

“Alright, 7 pounds and 9 ounces!” the midwife smiled, taking your little boy, after taking his length and weight before swaddling him up and handing him to you. 

“Enjoy him, he’s beautiful” the nurse smiling, making sure you were comfortable and reassuring that if you needed anything, to just press the red caller button and someone would be down the assist. 

-

You sniffled, wiping away at your eyes, as your little boy latched onto your chest, quite quickly before nuzzling close to you and suckling away. 

Harry stirred awake, eyes going wide. 

“Are you okay? Does something hurt?” he questioned, getting up from the uncomfortable chair, back a bit stiff before quickly walking over to you. 

“No, no” you chuckled groggily, throat dry. 

“He just latched on so quickly” you whispered, voice wavering. “I was so worried he wouldn’t, but he just started to whimper, and his lips were suckling together so I figured he was hungry, and he just went at it right away” you smiled, looking down at him. 

“That’s my boy!” Harry smirked, lightening up the mood a bit and you rolled your eyes with a giggle. 

“Oh shush” you whispered. 

“What are we going to name him…” you questioned to yourself and to him. “We were so set on the idea that it’d probably be a girl, that we didn’t even think of that many boy names” you chuckled, looking up at Harry as the little boy ate away. 

“Hmm, what about Oliver? We could call him Ollie?” he suggested. 

You look down at the little boy and shrugged your shoulders. 

“He doesn’t look like much of an Oliver to me.” you debated. 

You heart stopped, as a name suddenly came to mind, and you felt as if it were perfect. You and Harry had spent a brief moment speaking of it months back, but thinking of the name, you just knew that it had to be his name. 

“What about, Theodore?” you questioned, looking up at him. “We could call him Theo.” 

“Theodore Styles…” he tested out. 

After a moment of quite, he looked down and smiled at you. 

“I love it” he whispered. “Our little Theo” he sniffled, swiping a finger down his cheek.

-

Harry was awoken to small little whimpers beside him. He cracked an eye open to see you deeply asleep, so he quietly got up and made his way to the little bassinet where Theo was laid. 

“Hey, little guy” he whispered, careful to not wake you, since you needed the rest.

Harry gently placed his hand under his head and swiftly brought him close to his chest. 

Grabbing the soft blanket, you two had brought from home, he sat down on the reclining chair, gently taking off his shirt, and placing Theo on his chest and covering them both with the soft blanket. 

“Hey Theo…” he whispered, gently rocking back and forth. 

“You’re so beautiful, gosh, I really did not think you were going to be a boy” he chuckled softly. “But i’m so glad, I can’t imagine it any other way” he whispered.

“I hope I’ll be a good daddy for you”

“I’ll promise to always be there for you, bud. I’ll be there to kiss the boo boo’s away, i’ll be there at all your football matches, if that’s what you decided you wanna play when you get a bit older. I promise i’ll always be there for a chat if you ever need one, but I promise to love you, no matter what you do, because you’ll always be my little boy” he whispered.

-

You were awoken to a gentle tap at the door. You cracked an eye open, seeing Harry with Theo in his arms, snuggled close as Anne popped her head in.

“Hello, hello!” you whispered excitingly, placing her bag down quickly and making her way to you, giving you a warm embrace, kissing your cheek before making her way over to Harry.

“Oh, goodness” she whispered, hands instantly covering her mouth as tears coated her eyes. 

There was a moment of silence, before her eyes went wide. 

“It’s a boy?!” she gasped quietly, eyes going wide, looking between the two of you, as she saw his bassinet with the words “It’s a boy!” labeled on the side. 

“It’s a boy” you smiled, heart growing warm, as Anne placed her head on Harry’s shoulder, fawning over the new little member of the family. 

“Can I hold him?” she wavered, clearing her throat to get rid of the shakiness of her voice. 

“Of course, mum” Harry chuckled, waiting for her to quickly sanitize her hands before stepping beside him and having the baby placed into her hold. 

He whimpered slightly, but once replaced in another pair of warm arms, he snuggled close, with a snuffled nose, before going back to sleep. 

“Oh, he’s just beautiful” she gushed, running a finger down his cheek, before taking a seat on the edge of your bed. 

“How was the delivery?” she questioned, looking up at you. 

“It was hard.” you spoke truthfully. “If Harry hadn’t been there, I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do it” you softly smiled as he pressed a kiss to the side of your forehead. 

There was a moment of silence, all eyes on Theo.

“So mum…” Harry started. 

“We’d officially like for you to meet…Theodore Robin Styles” Harry whispered, eyeing you with a soft smile as Anne’s head shot up. 

“What?” she whispered tearfully. 

“Mhm” you whispered, wiping at your eyes.

“We figured it would play out well, he was such an amazing man, he was always there for Harry, and we want Theo to have a part of him.” you whispered, tears rattling your voice. 

“Oh goodness, he would have loved it” she sniffled, looking up at the ceiling to try and contain her tears. 

“Oh, mum” Harry whispered, sitting beside her and embracing her.

“Thank you, that’s just…so beautiful” she whispered. “I’m sure he loves it” she smiled softly, looking down at Theo.

“What a wonderful little boy…” she whispered. 

Oh, but was she right, he really was a wonderful little boy.

here we have it, the birth of the first Styles’ baby, Little Theo! Hopefully you enjoyed, let me know what you thought, and if you have any requests be sure to send them to my ask box! lots of love x

Reaching out to fellow autistics, or other people who have a similar problem. Sometimes, even if I know I’ll have fun, I don’t want to hang out with people because the energy involved scares me. I /have/ the energy, but thinking about using it is uncomfortable for me. But I also want to meet new people and make friends and have new experiences. AND I don’t want to get into the habit of saying no to things because it’s so easy to.
Anyone have like, a series of questions they ask themselves (or something similar) to help them decide whether they want to and/or should hang out with certain people or do a certain thing?

Juliet Unscripted

So you know, I get these lovely messages from all of you here and then the ones we get at the scenario blog, and they just make me literally squeal and do the happy dance but I really think I should be honest with you guys. Like seriously, you need to know what happens when I get one of your requests or messages–so I thought I would start a little silly series to offer you a sampling of my thought process and what I think. Maybe then you’ll realize it really IS a miracle when you get something worthwhile out of me lol

You have a dirty–wait, honey, listen to me–we all know that for Juliet–it was Yama-chan and his damn black Porsche. I’m pretty sure my ovaries exploded twenty times just making the mood board. I mean…you try googling his name along with the kind of keywords that are gonna bring up the images you want to use for that kind of story. Let’s get real, you know, you guys already have that search bookmarked and arranged by date.

And you haven’t, what the heck? Open a new tab and google it. I’ll wait for you. Go on.

You back? Great, so the fact remains, the second the wall of images of him shows up I am literally like:

tell me why this budgetless gay youtube series made for fun by a group of friends has the best editing and writing of anything i’ve watched in a year.

also tell me how this single scene can contain every single one of the top three most iconic lines in history.

edit: whoa, i didn’t expect this to blow up so quick! putting the source in the tags was a bad idea, sorry. this is brian jordan alvarez’s the gay and wondrous life of caleb gallo, and you can watch it on youtube or vimeo! he makes lots of other hilarious gay videos too, so you should check out his whole channel.

some unlucky kiddos :’)

i want an ep where keith confesses to the team he has a crush on a guy and lance goes on full conspiracy mode to find out who he is (trying to revisit in his head all the places they’ve been to, all the aliens they’ve met) and uses a series of excuses to mask the fact he’s lowkey jealous about it: “i’m just pissed he has more game than me right now!!” to “i’m just trying to make sure he’s right for him because you know…that’s what friends do” *sudden coughing*.

eventually, instead of sulking around he resolutes in asking him directly about that. “i mean, if you really really reallyyyy like this guy you should make sure he’s a good one and doesn’t break your heart at some point you know…because that’d be unfortunate……..” “nah don’t worry he won’t” “how are you so sure…….” “because otherwise he wouldn’t care about me having a broken heart.” keith rushes out of the room after saying that and lance makes a very pleasing 2+2

Five reasons to watch Netflix's new Anne of Green Gables adaption, Anne With An "E"...

So I didn’t think I would need to make a post like this but negative reviews that don’t do the show justice (particularly that horrible vanity fair article) have apparently left me no choice….
Overall, Netflix’s Anne With An “E” or simply Anne The Series as it was called when it originally aired on the CBC in Canada, is wonderful. 

here are five reasons why you should watch Anne With An “E” on Netflix:

1. Anne herself, Amybeth McNulty. 

Originally posted by greengableslover

Amybeth completely captures Anne’s spirit. I swear it’s like someone shook the book and Amybeth fell out of it. She plays Anne with all the dreaminess, quirkiness, and charm that we know and love, as well as adding more depth to her than we’ve seen in previous adaptions. This brings me to my next point…

2. Anne is portrayed as an abuse and trauma survivor, as she should be! 

Sure, we all love the lighthearted humor of Anne’s many misadventures in the original stories, and that’s still there in Anne With An “E”, but Anne was also the victim of a lot of mental and physical neglect and abuse in her past life before being adopted by the Cuthberts. In the show, she suffers from symptoms of PTSD and the effects of her past trauma are evident. The result of adding more details of Anne’s past do make the show darker at times, but the dark times only make the light times shine brighter, and we know there are more light times to come in Anne’s story!

3. Besides Amybeth, the rest of the cast is superb as well! 

All around, the casting is spot on and the acting is spectacular! I don’t even know what else to say here, but everyone is just so wonderful!!!

And don’t think I’d forget… you can count on me to give a special shout-out to everyone’s favorite slate smack recipient, Gilbert Blythe.  

Originally posted by violentfille

Lucas Jade Zumann is PERFECT as Gilbert. He brings a slyness and playfulness to Gilbert that was there in the books but glossed over in other adaptions. And by the way, his chemistry with Amybeth McNulty is everything you could ever ask for and more…

(side note: I would also like to throw out a special mention to Aunt Josephine Barry, no spoilers but she’s more lovable than she’s ever been)

4. The show tackles timeless and contemporary themes of identity, feminism, bullying, and prejudice.

Anne’s life, realistically, doesn't become all sunshine and rainbows as soon as she comes to Avonlea. She struggles to fit in and faces bullying at school. The show also addresses issues of sexism and classism and does a great job at it while accurately (for the most part) staying within the time period it is portraying. 

5. Everything about the show is high quality.    

From the aforementioned acting to the cinematography, music, costume design, sets, editing, and the GORGEOUS opening title sequence, everything is the highest quality and you can tell how much thought, time, effort, and passion went into the making of this show. 


Please give it a chance and check it out on Netflix, given the opportunity the show could grow and get even better if it is renewed for future seasons!

  • The Kissing Disease by cottonballz_of_death (E, 30,856 w.) – John brings home a boyfriend, shocking Sherlock, who long ago gave up hope that his straight flatmate would ever take a romantic interest in him. In a bid to reconnect with John, he tries to infect himself with a “harmless” virus. Neither of them is prepared for the emotional fallout that results.
  • Surety by hudders (G, 2,477w.) – “Sherlock is pissed because it seems that four pints of larger, two shots of tequila and a glass of wine has resulted in Lestrade becoming a little bit too friendly with everyone. And by everyone, Sherlock really means John.”
  • Butterfly, Pinned Under Glass by billiethepoet (E, 4,648 w.) – It started as a desire to keep John safe and whole, and ended up as just desire.
  • Correspondence by Cleo2010 (T, 8031 w.) – Sherlock’s been spirited away on a case for Mycroft. Part of the deal was that he and John could communicate via letter until the case was completed. Maybe the cliche is true, absence does make the heart grow fonder. Or perhaps something is growing on the feet in the fridge. Read their letters month by month. Written after series one.
  • Presence by LostGirl (M, 8625 w.) – Sherlock has recently noticed a shift in his own perceptions, but he can’t quite figure out when it started.
  • Obsession, Appassionato by shinychimera, Yeomanrand (E, 4,249 w.) – John is late, and he hasn’t called, and Sherlock works himself into a state. Part 1 of Love and Ysaye (FAVE!!)
  • Interlude by sussexbound (SamanthaLenore) (G, 2,837w.) – “Are you actually doing anything?” Sherlock scowls. “What?” “Are you busy? Because if not, I could use your help peeling potatoes.” “I’m not eating what you’re making. Why should I peel the potatoes?” John just shakes his head. “Because it might be a polite and thoughtful thing to do for the person who loves you. Just a tip.”Oh…Part 8 of The Homecoming
  • Understanding by sussexbound (SamanthaLenore) (T, 4,556 w.) – John’s face stretches into a smile that fades again, just as quickly. “It just comes like that, sometimes—all of a sudden. You don’t expect it.” He murmurs against Sherlock’s skin. “What does?” “Grief.” Part 9 of The Homecoming
  • Sibling Rivalry Or Fighting Over John Watson by Jessa7 (T, 8K+ w., Romance and Humour, FFNet) – Mycroft is just as much of a genius as Sherlock is. He keeps randomly kidnapping John for chats, and the locations get better. Cue Sherlock’s younger sibling complex rearing up and jealousy ensues.
  • Come Home by hudders-and-hiddles (E, 3,763 w. | more pining than jealous but close enough) – When John leaves for a medical conference, Sherlock tries to entice him back home.
  • The Semantics of Crop Circle Formation: a case study by Sherlock Holmes [unpublished] by canolacrush (M, 41,710 | Cockblocking Sherlock) – “Look at these photographs,” I said, gesturing to the wall of crop circles. “What do you observe?”“Crop circles,” John replied.“Obvious. What else?”“Are…are those intestines surrounding them?”“Yes. The majority are bovine and ovine in origin. The farmers who have acquired these crop circles in their fields have also had a tenth of their livestock murdered and arranged thus.”“Why?” John said, presumably in a rhetorical fashion.I detest rhetorical questions. “That is what I must find out, John.”
  • Down with this Ship by FrostedFlame (PinkOrchid) (M, 10,862 w.) – Sherlock drags John undercover to a gay bar - for a case, of course - looking forward to seeing John flustered by their surroundings (since you know, he’s NOT GAY). John decides that he has hidden both his orientation and his feelings for his daft flatmate for far too long. He is done hiding, time to be honest with his bloody best friend in the world. He just hopes it won’t change anything between them. And then it does.
  • That Partitioning of the Things of Youth by wearitcounts (Sher_locked_up) (E | 35,353 w.) - Victor Trevor is in town, and nobody’s happy. [[I really like this one. Jealous John AND Sherlock and lots of Angst]].
  • Paparazzi by SilentAuror (E, 10,543 w.) – John moves back into 221B Baker Street after his marriage falls apart and the paparazzi won’t leave him and Sherlock alone about the status of their supposed relationship. Sherlock, of course, never denies it, until one day he does…
  • Pattern Behaviour by SilentAuror (E, 14,835w) – Sherlock doesn’t even know why he resents John’s dates so much. Until the day he does know. Slight angst, unrequited feelings (but don’t let that scare you off!) (FAVE!) 

OBSESSIVE / POSSESSIVE SHERLOCK

  • Perdition’s Flames by i_ship_an_armada (E, Treklock, 63,435 w., | mild Possessive Sherlock) – Sherlock would do anything to save him. Risk anything. Give anything. His money, his life. His soul. What he does, though, is change both of their destinies forever. Genetic re-engineering is the only option left. It turns out researchers underestimated the life expectancy and potential abilities of genetically re-engineered subjects. The British government and what would eventually become the United Federation of Planets, however, had not. Part 1 of PF Universe
  • The Things You Hide *Adult Edition* by verityburns (E, 10,821 w.) – Sherlock and John have been working and living together for nearly a year, each finding the other’s friendship to be the one thing they would not risk or want to live without. Until something happens to disturb the status quo…
  • Let Go by thisisforyou (G, 2,743 w.) – In the end, separating John’s things from Sherlock’s in the chaos of their sitting room is like pulling a limpet from a wet rock. Especially when the rock is clinging on for dear life, because Sherlock doesn’t want to let go. 
  • In the cherry blossom’s shade by Eliane (M, 3,934 w.) – “This isn’t new. Sherlock has already done this – has gone through cities, and dingy hotels, and sleepless nights but it was different before. John wasn’t there before. They’re in this together.”
  • The Marriage Proposal Negotiation by Goddess_of_the_Night (G, 2161 w.) –  Sherlock hasn’t ever really done anything the traditional way, so of course it wouldn’t bother him to propose to John even though they’re not even dating. And the fact that John is already on a date with someone else when he decides to do it? Tedious. Marrying John was the only thing he could do to ensure John was his.
  • The Light of Day by allonsys_girl (M, 7297 w.) – Rewrite of the end of Sign of Three. John actually notices Sherlock leaving the reception early, and chases after him. Angsty Johnlock. Happy ending, for sure. Part 1 of The Light of Day
  • Let the Sun Fade Out by nothingislittle (E, 2711 w.) – “He could warm the sun itself, Sherlock thinks, could heat their flat with just his presence, could brighten the room with one dazzling smile or just the sparkling in his eyes. Everything hurts when John looks this beautiful, but it’s a dulcet, aching pain, one that consumes Sherlock from the inside, that sends soft pangs through his abdomen and lodges a lump solidly in his throat. John glows, he glitters, he’s light itself, Sherlock thinks, and doesn’t even bother to scold himself for exaggerating, because he’s not, he’s not, John is everything, he’s beautiful and he shines, he’s everything.”
  • On a Sunday Morning by SD_Ryan for jimmytiberius (G, 3136 w.) – Sherlock has a little problem. He can’t stop obsessing about John Watson.
  • His by I’m Nova (T, 1K+ w., Humour & H/C) – Sherlock doesn’t share what he’s fond of. (FAVE!!)
  • Foresight by niffler09 (K, 2K+w) – It’s raining and neither John nor Sherlock have an umbrella so they huddle under Sherlock’s coat. And then Mycroft walks past and makes smartass remarks. (FAVE!!)
  • Possessive by Fang323 (T, 850w. H/c & Friendship) – His John did not belong. Not here. Not in this blasted hospital. It simply was not logical.

As I’ve said in the past, all my rec lists are of fics I’ve read, so I’m sure I’m missing a tonne more that are probably on my MFL list, but please feel free to add your own recs! 

Why You Should Read/Watch Gangsta

1. Ethnically Diverse Cast

Gangsta takes place in the fictional city of Ergastulum and it is where the main subjects of the story, Twilights -or Tags- try to coexist with humans. And due to things such as prison overcrowding and becoming home to refugees, the city became a very populated and diverse place and you can see things such as interracial couples and even important characters that are POC/ mixed such as:

Nicolas Brown (mixed- Asian/White)

Alex Benedetto (mixed- Black/Asian)

Galahad Woehor (black)

Doug (mixed- Black/???)

Worick Arcangelo (white)

Yang (Chinese)

2. Disabled Main Character That Kicks Major Ass

One of the main characters, Nicolas Brown, is deaf and often communicates using sign language (and on occasions, he will talk though his voice is distorted and slurred).

However, despite Nicolas being deaf, this guy will easily kick someone’s ass all over town with his katana.

In fact, that’s what he’s most known for: being able to kick someone’s ass even though he can’t hear a thing. Making him notorious throughout the streets of Ergastulum.

There’s also another male main character, Worick Arcangelo, who only has one eye and is sight-impaired because of it. He doens’t let it get to him though and his disability doesn’t make him any less threatening than Nicolas and Ergastulum also knows to fear the one-contract holding normal who’s apart of the Benriya Trio.

3. Badass Female Characters  

Probably one of the top reasons you should ever consider this series– the female characters are amazing. Despite some of the girl’s large busts, they aren’t being used for just plain fanservice and actually bring something to the show with varying aspects.

We have Alex, a former prostitute who suffers from PTSD,

but she is brave and won’t let her inability to fight stop her from jumping in to help her friends, even against people who are clearly stronger than her.

Loretta, one of the most accomplished girls in the story at a young age –15 to be precise– who is the leader of her own mafia family. She has men to do her bidding and to use at her disposal, but she blatantly refuses to sacrifice them and let them die needlessly– so she joins the fight too.

Connie, even when out numbered and overpowered due to her status as a normal(human)– she fights. She isn’t indestructible and she isn’t strong, but that’s exactly what makes Connie a powerhouse. She doesn’t step down and her willpower to survive and protect the people she cherishes most is outstanding.

And this is only to name a few of the beautiful women that grace this series (and the ones that aren’t even Twilights). 

4. Accurate Use of Japanese Sign Language

Though this possibly should have gone after reason number two, I digress. Another good reason to start looking at Gangsta is the fact that legitimate sign language is used and could be even be educational in the fact that you can practice reading it.

However, keep in mind that this Japanese Sign Language, so for those who already know some form of sign language– here’s a chance to pick up another type just in case you might actually be heading to Japan and encounter a person who knows it.

5. A LGBTQA Couple

Though not much has been explored on these two characters, Gina Paulklee and Ginger are two Twilight women that happen to be in an implied relationship with one another. Heavily so.

So if you want a series with an actual lesbian couple that isn’t just yuri-exclusive and it’s ACTUALLY canon, Gangsta is the series for you.

6. Nina

Nina is possibly one of the most precious characters in Gangsta and a constant ray of sunshine when things get too dark. She’s a nurse-in-training who works for a gruff doctor named Theo and is a very open-minded, gentle person who doesn’t discriminate people due to colour or species.

She’s not portrayed as a weak little girl either and will jump in a surgery as fast as possible, getting info as she prepares.

Also, Nina and Nicolas’s uncle/brother-niece/sister relationship is one of the most endearing and adorable things ever.

7. Delico

Another precious child who must be protected at all costs and is a total bae. (His tarot card representation is the hanged man like Kaneki, you know he needs a protection squad!)

8. Just An Interesting Series In General

Gangsta takes an interesting twist on things like discrimination with it’s dog tag wearing characters called Twilights and the mafia. The diverse cast of characters extends past the fact that they are different races and delve into deeper things like, what past events shaped up their current personality or reasons that lead to make certain decisions with their lives even if it wasn’t the best choice.

The girl characters are used for more than fanservice and there are more than just hetero couples, LGBTQA and interracial couples all included.

While this may be a phrase used to describe many other anime/manga, Gangsta is a series that is taking the otaku community by a storm due to bringing what other, more mainstream stories, fail to include in their storylines and Kohsuke is doing a wonderful job with it.

So at the very least, check out the first chapter or episode of Gangsta and give it a chance because this is a series that is worth a try.

A Life Less Ordinary by Jebiwonkenobi

It takes a few years but eventually they manage to agree on something; Derek Hale is an asshole, and Stiles Stilinski is in love with him.


Burn by night by thebrotherswinchester

Sheriff Stilinski has been kidnapped by Alpha werewolves. As bait. For his own son.


Cupboard Love by mklutz

He’s carefully balancing the sandwiches and the two biggest tupperware containers he could find that both had functioning lids when the front door opens and he almost drops everything right there in front of the stupid fountain.

If that’s Derek Hale, he’s definitely not a mountain man.


Daddy’s Do’s by apocryphal

“Hi Mr. Stilinski!” Lydia said pertly. “My name’s Lydia, and this is my daddy. His name is Derek Andrew Hale and he watches all of your videos on YouTube a lot, but he still can’t braid.”

[Stiles is a celebrity YouTube hairstylist. Derek may or may not have a crush. Lydia just wants a French braid for school picture day.]


Everything’s Better Under the Sea by tryslora

Everything changes when Derek goes under while surfing, hits his head on a board, and sees a man with a tail swimming away. He wants to know who that was, and what it has to do with Beacon Hills, the one place he never meant to come back to.

Villainous Fan-Made Title Cards

There was a Villainous thread on /co/ the other day where people came up with a bunch of potential episode ideas for if the show was ever picked up as a full series. It was fun reading them, so I decided to turn a couple of them into title cards.

Kharaxel (LINK) then swooped in and made them ten times better by adding music cues to make them reminiscent of the old Batman: The Animated Series’ title intros. So here they are! 

Also you should check out his SoundCloud because he has a Villainous fan theme there and it’s great (LINK). 

All the following descriptions are copied directly from the /co/ thread, none are my own ideas, I only supplied the art. 

“Out of Commission”
Black Hat is temporarily put out of commission by an eldritch horror and Dr. Flug and Demencia have to take over selling products to buyers.

“Berserker Bro”
Dark forces race to destroy the world’s last time machine to stop an era-displaced Viking warrior welding a magic axe from returning to the past and undoing the future that is Black Hat!

“Demencia Rim”
Demencia is mutated into a giant reptilian version of herself that proceeds to wreck havoc on the nation. All well and good, but she’s a picky eater and won’t settle for anything less than a taste…of her boss.

“Nightmare on Hell’s Street”
After making a deal with a dreamscape horrific abomination. Black Hat finds all of his cohorts are having nightmares, to his horror none of them are about him! He goes into each of their dreams to make the nightmares properly horrifying, but finds it harder than he anticipated.

SARA’S FINN FIC MASTERPOST

#DateMeBuckyBarnes (Part 20)

Summary: When Hollywood’s heartthrob Bucky Barnes breaks up with his girlfriend, you jokingly tag him in a selfie on Instagram to express your desire to date him. What you don’t expect is a response from the man himself [Modern AU].

Word Count: 960

‘#DateMeBuckyBarnes’ Masterlist

A/N: While this story is drawing to an end, we’re still riding the angst train in this series. It feels like a neverending drop, doesn’t it? However, I hope the remaining chapters will bring clarity to everything. 

Originally posted by buckypupbarnes

You remained silent as you slipped away from Bucky’s touch, leaving his pleas unanswered. Succumbing to his wrath once more, you let yourself drift away from the world as you tried to process everything he confessed to you. So much was revealed and you didn’t know how to react, what to think of his situation. If anything, you were confused and shocked and exhausted by all of this, not having the capability to sort out your emotions anymore. Though he thought his confession gave you clarity, Bucky caused more chaos in your muddled thoughts that ever before, causing more questions to arise than answers.
