something everyone should read

Two Sides to Every INTJ:

INTJ: why are humans such idiots? All these idiots, running into walls and screaming and gossiping behind each other’s backs. Teenagers suck. Why are we all so horrible. This is why everyone hates me, I am evil.

also INTJ: KITTY FRIEND COME PLAY WITH ME I LOVE YOU

I can’t wait to read the 10th book hnnnnnnnnnng cries in Spanish bc it will take ages for the book to be translated but stops crying bc I’ll get it in English and then it’ll take me years to finish it

Les Mis fics for Inception peeps

Originally posted by graphicdesignblg

I CAME IN LIKE A RECCING BALL.

So as everyone here knows, I have yet to shut up about World Ain’t Ready, which was finished in April 2015. Some of you have had the very good sense to say, “I don’t read Les Mis, but I’ll read this like original fic and shit it’s 3a.m.” (For those of you who haven’t yet: I’ll see you in 185k.) 

For everyone going, now what, here’s what to read. 

Let’s start with the obvious: idiopathicsmile’s other two fics, In Defiance of All Geometry (51k, T) and Lovesickness (11k, T). The latter is a charming “Enjolras is bad at feelings” fic, while the former is an excellent OT3 co-op AU (disclaimer on this fic: like WAR, it’s in need of an epilogue). 

Since you’re in the Inception fandom, you might want to check out this stellar OT3 White Collar AU, Still the Same (74k, E), not to mention this assassin AU, Hit Me With Your Best Shot (10k, T). 

Everybody loves a good college AU. First, there’s the Combeferre’s-thesis-is-an-opera fic, You Dance Dreams (61k, E). Then there’s insomnia in the library, If there’s no rest for the wicked, well, then we’ll never get no sleep (10k, E). Plus someone sneaking food into Enjolras’s room in A Tupperware Full of Love (3k, G). 

And everybody needs some famous musician AUs, right? (Or maybe that’s just me). My favorites are Ten Years (16k, E) and I Don’t Want to Be Your Friend (9k, T). 

Every fandom needs accidental baby acquisition: In the End We Have Each Other (50k, E). 

Not to mention fake dating. Enjolras needs a boyfriend in Best Kept Secrets (38k, T); Grantaire needs one in the quiet truth (13k, E). 

Let’s move on to cohabitation. Before they’re dating: Years Since It’s Been Clear (10k, E). And a different AU where they’re already in a relationship: home is where you are series (5k, G). 

IDENTITY PORN TIME: We Are Who We Are (29k, T). 

A mess of short fics, mostly sweet: Plan M (10k, G); Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood (8k, not rated); Green, So Much Green (2k, M); A Lesson in Perspective (2k, G). 

Two short fics, with misunderstandings and happy endings: Crossed Wires (2k, G) between the shadow and the soul (2k, G). 

Super slow burn featuring that classic trope, what defines a date: these things take time (63k, E). 

For writers, editors, and road trip aficionados: They Write Books About This Sort of Thing (50k, E). 

A superb modern/mythology AU in which Grantaire is a selkie: The Lonely Sea and Sky (53k, E). 

And now for the grand finale, the only not-a-happy-ending fic I ever rec, the only one I’ve ever willingly read while not deliberately looking to provoke cathartic tears (although this fic did make me cry in public), I present a beautiful, imaginative fic that will break your heart, a fic in which cities are personified and Paris has been missing for centuries: Paris Burning (45k, E). 

@dandalf-the-disco​, @thewibblywobblystuff@teacuphuman09 , @justgot1, @katiewont , @thingsbeginningwitha

There are so many great fics out there that need to be recognized! If you find something you like on this list, be sure to show it the appreciation it deserves with likes, reblogs, and messages to the author! I hope you can find something to enjoy and remember that if you’d like me to see your work, be sure to tag me in it!

Just a reminder that no all/mostly smut fics will be added. If they’re part of a series I will link non-smut parts.

Fluff

  • Permanency by @idreamofhazel (Reader x Sam) - Short and sweet! I loved reading this and it’s perfect for just a little sweetness on a bad day! This made me so happy; it was adorable.
  • Breakfast by @wayward-oneshots (Reader x Sam) - Sleepy Sammy!!! He’s such a weakness of mine, ugh. You’re so good at describing things and I could totally picture everything in my mind. I loved this!!
  • The Only Exception by @impalaimagining (Reader x Sam) - This was amazing! I’m such a sucker for everything southern/ranch related when it comes to the boys, and I think that the whole concept of the reader’s mom not liking guys/love things made everything so much more exciting and detailed! This was so cute!!
  • Mouth of a Sailor by @impalaimagining (Reader x Sam) - I loved this one; it was short and Dean’s reactions were so funny! Plus, I could totally be this reader and that made it so relatable and fun to imagine what the boy’s reactions would be. I think you got them spot on!
  • Angel Wings by @mysaintasinner (Angel!Reader x Sam) - I feel like I’ve read this one before, but it’s great! There’s some Destiel in it, but since the main focus was on the reader and Sam I thought it just added to the plot and made everything so much more exciting and fun to watch unfold!
  • Rendezvous Revelations by @bringmesomepie56 (Reader x Dean) - This was so, so cute! I loved getting to hear Dean’s thoughts as they slowly revealed more and more about their locations. I think having it from his perspective was a really great move!
  • Lily in Hand by @femmewinchester (Reader x Dean) - I was really worried how Dean would be portrayed as a florist because that’s something I’ve never really pictured him as, but you did such a great job! This was adorable. I’m always a sucker for fake dating tropes, lemme tell you. 
  • Makin Me Look Good Again by @ravengirl94 (Reader x Dean) - This was amazing! Dean needs more of this kind of love, in my opinion, and it was so cute to see him finally getting taken care of!
  • Mixup by @jpadjackles (Reader x Dean) - I loved this fic! It cracked me up to see poor Dean dealing with everything, but it was really sweet to see how the reader was taking care of him (and I hope that Dean learns not to be so whiny and take things for granted).
  • Daisy by @hunters-from-stark-tower (Reader x Dean) - This was so great! It was funny at parts, with just a dash of angst, and I love dogs, so that made it even better. The ending was definitely not what I expected, but I think that it was absolutely perfect and definitely true to character!
  • Preference: PDA by @supernatural-jackles (Reader x Dean, Sam, or Cas) - I love preferences because sometimes I just want all of TFW instead of just one of them, and this was absolutely perfect! I think you captured all of the boys’ essences so well! The Cas one definitely made me laugh!
  • Late Night Musings #1 by @lipstickandwhiskey (No Pair) - This isn’t really fanfiction, per se, but it’s adorable and I think that it’s something sweet everyone should read before bed. It made my stomach all fluttery and happy!

In-Between

  • Night Time Demons by @katymacsupernatural (Reader x Sam) - A little angst, a little fluff—this was perfect! I have a lot of feelings about Sam talking about his feelings, and who wouldn’t love Sam Winchester reassuring them they were great? Also, I really loved the part at the end where the reader was “shy from all the praise” because that’s totally how I feel when I’m complimented and it made it so relatable and realistic!
  • Club Soda and Whiskey by @nichelle-my-belle (Reader x Dean) - This has smut in it! I skipped over it, but this was fantastic nonetheless! I loved how the reader fooled him in the beginning and it was great to see Dean making some connections with people who don’t have perfect lives either. Plus, I really liked how the reader described him not being so cocky and everything because Dean’s a real sweetheart!
  • So Close by @whispersandwhiskerburn (Reader x Dean) - What a plot twist! The little bit of angst from Dean trying to figure out what was going on made this fic amazing, and I loved the way you incorporated the lyrics and the themes from the song!
  • The Estate by @just-another-busy-fangirl (No Pair) - I loved this! It was really unique and I hope you write more parts! I can’t wait to see if she ends up with somebody and what they’ll all do now that the houses are connected.

Series Works

Links in the series section are always to the masterlist, or if unavailable, the latest post will be linked.

  • Saving Lives by @purgatoan (Doctor!Reader x Doctor!Sam) - Ahh, I can’t wait to find out how Sam and Dean will work everything out! The dialogue between everyone was great, and it was so funny to see how Sam and Dean are so alike in what they say about the same situation.
  • Sensation by @littlegreenplasticsoldier (Reader x Sam) - This series can be tough to read at times, just because it’s so heartwrenching and Sam’s philosophical thoughts are way too intelligent for me at times, but I really cannot get enough of it and I can’t wait for more parts! The idea behind it is so unique and I’m in love!
  • Invisible by @just-another-busy-fangirl (Reader x Dean) - I’m obsessed with this series! I can’t wait to see how/if the reader ever gets to be seen again, and the exact reason why Sam can’t see her but Dean can! This is so intriguing and it’s been one of my favorite series lately.
  • It’s Always Been You by @sleepywinchester (Reader x Dean) - This series was so, so cute and I loved how you stayed true to the episode while still making it your own. I was literally so invested in this series and I’m a little sad it’s over, even though I loved the ending!
  • Finding Home by @willowing-love (Reader x Cas) - Wow! I am so in love with this series! It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to find a Cas series I adored, and I’m so glad that I took the time to read something I normally wouldn’t! The whole idea of this is incredible and I can’t wait to see what happens between the reader and Cas and, well, the reader and Cas!

Non-Reader Works

  • One More Day by @percywinchester27 (Sam and Dean) - My poor Dean Bean and my poor Sammy! This was heartwrenching to see poor Sammy getting yelled at in the heat of the moment, but the fluff at the end made it better. I loved how Dean knew just how to make Sam feel okay again.
Josh Gad’s Tribute to Robin Williams

I recently came across a heartfelt message that Josh Gad wrote the day Robin Williams passed away, and I think it’s something everyone should read. 

“Every actor has that idol that inspires them. That makes them want to bring joy and laughter to the masses; to make people cry and think; to give people a two-hour escape from the pain of their daily lives. For me that actor was Robin Williams.

As a product of the ‘80s, I grew up with Robin’s antics. One of my first cinematic memories was seeing a one-eyed, muscled Robin singing and dancing in Robert Altman’s Popeye. His spinach-chewing drawl and bow-legged walk were fodder for imitation in my house. Looking more like a younger Bluto than Popeye, I never quite got it down, but it never stopped me from trying to emulate a master. I remember sitting through Hook and watching as Peter Banning remembered what it was like to be a boy again; to fly above the clouds and to remind us all that the power of imagination and childlike wonder is as ageless as the stories of Neverland.

I remember learning about unique words for male and female genitalia when I accidentally tuned into Comic Relief and laughed until it hurt (up to the moment my pale and mortified mother walked in and changed the channel). But above all, I remember sitting in a dark theater in South Florida in the winter of 1992 and watching a Genie come to life in Aladdin and tear a hole in the very fabric of space and time for me. It was at that moment that I realized … “That’s what I want to do with my life.”

Cut to the summer of 2011 when I was performing in The Book of Mormon on Broadway. By that time, it was common for celebrities to visit. Everyone from Bono to Oprah had come to see what the buzz was all about. It was always a thrill to look out in the audience and see a familiar face that had inspired me. But on this particular summer night, May 15 to be exact, I looked into the audience as I sang the opening lines to Hello and saw a bearded hero smiling back at me. That night, I gave what was probably the best performance I have ever given on a stage. I felt intoxicated with the knowledge that I was entertaining a man who had raised me on his comedy specials, his movies and his TV series. It would be like Luke Skywalker bringing the Empire down as Obi-Wan sits atop the Death Star and simply smiles. Or in this case, a heavyset Jedi warrior, who is desperately out of breath, performing for a master Jedi.

At the end of the show, I went up to my dressing room and received a message over the loudspeaker. Someone was waiting for me backstage. I slowly walked down the stage, trying to think of what to say when I came face to face with my hero. I remembered that he had just moved into my building on 63rd Street. As I turned the corner and saw him beaming like a proud father, I blurted out, “Hey, you live in my building!” He smiled at me and without missing a beat, exclaimed, “No boy. You live in my building!” And so began my relationship with the idol I was fortunate enough to call a friend.

That summer, as Robin was a delivering his brilliantly fierce and underappreciated performance in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, he and I became Broadway buddies. Every night, we would get back from the theater around the same time and share war stories about our respective shows. Soon, however, our nightly encounters evolved into a written correspondence that began as a joke and ended as one of the most cherished collections of letters I have in my possession. About once a week, we would leave notes to each other at the front desk. Opening up a letter from Robin became a ritual that I would look forward to like a child opening a gift on Christmas morning. The contents of those letters are too personal to share, but what they meant to me can never fully be expressed. Sadly, Robin’s show ended all too soon and he retreated back to San Francisco. He left me his bicycle, the same bicycle he would ride around the Hudson River daily before his shows, taking in all the splendor and beauty of the city. A moment of tranquility for a man so desperately in need of it.

As many know, my performance as Olaf in Frozen is inspired by the great Robin Williams. When I first met with the film’s directors, I told them I wanted to create a character as free and as wonderfully surprising at every turn as the greatest Disney sidekick I had ever known: the Genie. Olaf will never remotely touch the tour de force that is Robin’s Genie. Because there is only one Robin Williams. But the joy and laughter that my little snowman has brought to children is because of the man who has left this world far too early. A man who taught me to be free, to be childlike, and a man who taught me to get out of my own way as a performer. His gift was to take all of our pain away and to allow us to escape. If only we could have returned the favor.

As my best friend, Seth Gabel put it, I feel like we just lost our life coach. The one who always reminds us that regardless of the hardships we face, he will always be there to lift up our spirits. But, I like to think of him more like the clown. The one in the kingdom who entertains and lifts up the spirits of kings and paupers, knights and yeomen. The one who juggles, distracts, dazzles and mesmerizes at every turn. The one who brings us all together, despite our differences and holds court by virtue of the fact that he is not like any one of us, for he is unique and talented beyond the rest. Unfortunately, as we all too often forget, once the makeup comes off, the clown is just a man like the rest of us.

Well, today we’ve lost the clown. And now we’re left with the fools. Goodbye, friend.”

–Josh Gad, Aug 12, 2014


Josh Gad, you are my Robin Williams.

Finally getting a chance to read The Dark Horizon by @qqueenofhades and I have to say it is making me furious.

It makes me furious that this story isn’t considered like THE story in the fandom. This is FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND PLUS words of beautifully written, brilliantly researched amazingness and it just reminds me how completely unfair fandom can be. How the system is designed to reward smaller, easier to digest stories while mostly casting off masterpieces that are several novels worth of work.

There are some incredible stories by incredibly talented people that should without question be the top results of any search, that should without question have hundreds and hundreds of notes. This is one of them.

There are many others, ones I try to highlight and promote because they DESERVE it. And it rankles to see a 500 word Drabble get 500 notes but a 10k word chapter of wonderfully plotted and beautifully characterized multichapter might get 60-70? 100 is considered pretty tops for a multichapter chapter even by the arguably top authors of the fandom. A few can rack up a couple hundred for a chapter for one of those elusive “hit” stories but it’s rare.

It just. It sucks.

I wish multichapter writers got the recognition they deserved, for YEARS of work, for writing us free NOVELS and doing a much better job of doing it than actually paid authors. There just isn’t the same level of appreciation and attention for multichapters and it makes me sad to see that.

The whole system makes me sad actually. Fanfiction is so precious to me and it feels like it’s not worth it to put that much work into something when only 100 or so people appreciate it enough to take the time to do something to show they do.

anonymous asked:

lexa and a fedora lol what are you reading

Lmao I’m not reading it. A few months ago I was bored af because I couldn’t sleep so I was like “lets see if there’s anything worth reading” and I sorted the CL fics by kudos because dumb me thought that would be an indication of quality. I feel like I made it to the sixth or seventh page without anything calling out to me until I got to one where I was like “eh…maybe”. At that time the thing had like 4k kudos and almost as many comments. “That many people can’t be wrong” I assume. First mistake.

Within the first paragraph I was like “apparently they can.” Before the first chapter is even over they had Lexa in a fucking fedora. I read the sentence like three times to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating, but no, Lexa is most definitely wearing a fedora. Against my better judgment I decide to overlook it and keep reading. The chapters are short, so I’m like “Maybe it gets better.” Mistake number two.

I get to the second chapter and one of the first things I see is Octavia and Raven calling Clarke “Clarkey” and I’ve never closed a fic so fast in my life. I can’t deal with “Lexie” and “Clarkey” in fics. I can’t. No tolerance for it because in what universe would Raven, Octavia, or Lexa call Clarke that and in what universe would Lexa ever let anyone call her Lexie? Like…no. That’s a glaring misunderstanding of these characters at the most basic level. “Clarkey” would never come out of Raven’s mouth under any fucking circumstance. Much less Lexa and I’ve seen people make Lexa call Clarke that. How? Why? No.

Something really important that everyone who follows me should read

-read the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning

-please.

-that’s it.

-back to our regularly schedule programming :)

Caffè Mocha — Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland 

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Our Chemical Hearts is thought-provoking yet hilarious book. Who doesn’t love a book that makes you think while laughing out loud?

Chai Tea Latte — Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick

I order Chai Tea Latte every single time I go out. I feel like it’s such an underrated order. Every Exquisite Thing is underrated but absolutely fantastic. I devoured this book in one sitting. I’d hand it out to anybody.

Iced Caramel Macchiato — The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind is one hell of a ride. I feel like the iced caramel macchiato is a staple for a lot of people. This book is definitely a staple fantasy read.

Refreshers — Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

It’s a refreshing read. It covers a heavy topic but shares it in an uplifting way. It wraps up wonderfully making your heart feel all warm. It’s one of the best.

Pumpkin Spice Latte — Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell 

You’ll understand once you read it. Trust me.

Dark Roast — The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

The Kite Runner is a book that’s hard to swallow so it made me think of black coffee. (This is coming from someone who orders tea at Starbucks.) It’s definitely a raw and difficult read but it’s worth it in the end.

Coffee Frappuccino — The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth 

Frappuccinos have many flavors and are preferred by everyone. This book has absolutely everything needed to make a perfect novel. Every ingredient is spread throughout it nicely and it has one of those endings - the kind of endings that leave you wishing you had more. It’s such a wonderful and important coming of age novel.

Cappuccino — Leave Me by Gayle Forman 

Leave Me is Gayle Forman’s new adult debut that shares a deep message within awe-inspiring aspects, making the story feel absolutely real.

Iced — Wonder by R.J. Palacio 

Iced Coffee is incredibly basic but also at high demand. Wonder is something everyone and anybody should read. It’s a book that’s always stuck with me. The message is shares is remarkable and a rule that everyone should follow. It’s about being kind.

Starbucks Doubleshot on Ice — Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen had me rolling after I read it. I needed that sequel terribly! It’s fast-paced and full of magic and action. It has elements of several different books that we know and love - making it absolutely to die for.

KLAROLINE FANFICColored You In by lalainajanes

Rebekah asks a favor that turns out to be kind of life changing (life ruining?) for Caroline. Living with a temporarily broke Kol is one thing. A really, really annoying thing. And then Klaus is suddenly always around, planted on her couch, drinking her wine and adding snarky commentary which Caroline DOES NOT appreciate. Mikaelson’s and boundaries apparently did not mix.

“Unlike the hallways, the lunchroom was suspiciously silent. There was a tension that filled the space, immediately setting Alex on edge. Navigating through the crowd, he managed to slip to the front with ease. In any other case, his small stature would be a brittle thorn in his side, but on the occasion it had its advantages. The scene that laid before him was one that would not soon be forgotten. Lafayette was towering on top of a table, shouting in a mixture of French and English at another boy who was standing on the ground looking up smugly at the enraged teenager. There was a small circle of students blocking entrance to the faceoff, keeping any administration interference at bay. Teenagers are like sharks, Alex thought, a fight is like a drop of blood.”

Aaaaaand here is yet another drawing from @damn-man-ham-fam‘s brilliant fic. I can’t seem to stop drawing Hamilton how did this happen

May Master List

Thanks to everyone that posted in May. I hope you had fun with the prompts. Hopefully everyone should be able to find something they’ll enjoy reading from these amazing works. You can also find all previous works here. Happy reading!

Non-Smut: Movie Night

  • Movie Night - by @barpurplewrites: Most families had started a movie night after the Second Curse, there was a desire to actually see the films they had dim false memories of watching.
  • Be Our Guest - by @worryinglyinnocent: Belle parks up beside Gold and Bae at the drive-in movie theatre. When Bae invites her to share his popcorn, Belle and Gold end up paying a lot less attention to the film…
  • The Way Forward - by @woodelf68: Adult!Gideon fluff, and a way to fix the fact that (in this ‘verse) Rumbelle never got a chance to raise their own baby.
  • Scary Movie - by @worryinglyinnocent: Post-S1. Belle is eager to learn as much as she can about this new world, and watching horror films is all part and parcel of that. Rumpelstiltskin can’t help thinking, however, that her suggestion of a movie night has ulterior motives.
  • Meet Me in the Courtyard - by @mariequitecontrarie: Belle hosts a monthly movie night in Storybrooke, always leaving the seat next to her empty. Gold loathes movies, yet movie night at the library is the one community event even he can’t seem to resist.

Smut: Strip Club

  • Bouncers and Shakers - by @worryinglyinnocent: Whilst working behind the bar of the local strip club, cocktail waitress Belle reflects on her relationship with the club’s head of security, Mr Gold, and they share an intimate moment together after the club has closed.
  • Take It All - by @worryinglyinnocent: Working at Gold’s burlesque strip club in order to make rent, Belle is tired, and bitter, and she really wants to hate her employer. It would be easier if she didn’t find him so intriguing and attractive…
  • The Hen Party - by @worryinglyinnocent: Having seen a male strip show whilst on Ruby’s hen party, Belle wonders if she can get a repeat performance from her man at home…Part six of the Cave of Wonders series.
  • Bright Lights - by @still-searching47: (Please note there is no smut)  As clandestine meeting spots went, going undercover at a strip club was hardly Belle French’s preferred option. For a start where was she supposed to put her gun? The silver lining is that Alistair Gold is her contact. Belle has hidden her attraction to him for months and once she starts to dance, she isn’t sure if the provocative position is a blessing or a curse.
  • Laid Bare - by @little-inkstone: Agent Belle French’s employers believe that small town businessman Rumford Gold is more then he appears and is actually the notorious Spinning Wheel Thief a menace that’s caused trouble for years.  Belle is inclined to agree with them; until she slips into the cover of Lacey Avonlea, a stripper working at his club the Golden Thread.  Her mission demands she get close enough to prove his guilt, but her heart tells her he’s innocent.

FAVORITE BOOK OR SERIES MEME (1/?) » Daughter of Deep Silence by Carrie Ryan

Every life I’ve touched since jumping from the Persephone, I’ve ruined. I begin to sob, finding it difficult to breathe. The pain is too great, an undertow dragging me too deep. Already I feel Frances beginning to drown inside me. She’d broken through the surface for one last choking gasp but it wasn’t enough.

She was never strong enough for this. From the beginning it has always my job to survive. It’s what I do best. What I was made for.

Sterofic writers appreciation week: Day 01: Favorite angst fanfic(s). 

I’m pretty sure that I’m forgetting lots of fics here, cause I’ve read many angst fics and loved most of them. But these are my personal favorite that I can remember, some of them are my favorite fics not just angst fics. Huge thanks to the writers who blow my mind with these pieces. And everyone who didn’t read one of those should do something about that and just read everything on this list.

anonymous asked:

Hi!~ I'm very new to Taekook and I've read a few fics so far (five or so)—only one has really stuck out to me though. I don't know where to look since there are so many. I was wondering if you could recommend some of your personal favourites or some fics that are widely viewed as being the definitive ones that everyone should read? (Also – something with slow-burn? Not necessary but preferred.) Thank you kindly. ♡

welcome! you’ve come to the right place^^ we’ve listed our personal favorite authors here and we have a fave fics page for the admins here. I’ll go ahead and list some fics that I personally feel are fandom favorites or fandom classics in a way, but keep in mind that this is subjective haha (also we have a slow build tag if you’re ever interested in looking through it)

cuz in a sky full of stars (i think i saw you) by wowoashley - taehyung always has bad ideas. and jeongguk thinks this might be the best.

(this fic is the queen of all fake dating aus imo)

Something To Do With Hands by lethallergic - “It’s a lot like falling in love with a city you’ve never been to.”

(major slow burn, also most people’s ultimate fave when it comes to non-au fics)

Pour Up (Drank) by mindheist - If you can read this, take another shot.

Stop My Heart by wowoashley - “What does it feel like?” “What?” “Knowing you fixed the heart of the man who broke yours?”

Get Me Out Of My Mind (Get You Out Of Those Clothes) by taekookmusings - Taehyung never thought he’d fall in love with his roommate. Then again, he never thought his roommate would have been a literal gift from god either

The Adventures of BTS (Barely Trained Superheroes) by blurrylines - Super Heroes Academy AU. Seven different boys each possess a unique Power, to be trained and controlled within the classrooms of the Academy. In a surprising turn of events, the unlikely group of boys must work together to overcome the greatest threat to their Academy and all they believe in.

(perfect if you’re looking for something chaptered, well-written, and with all the members as central characters. also, superhero aus are the best)

Kiss Me Hard Before You Go by mindheist - Dramatization. Do not try at home.

my world only has you in it by nikkumeul - When Taehyung signed on at BTS Entertainment, he just thought he’d start getting laid a lot more. Then he films with Jeon Jeongguk.

pick me up, buttercup by vppa - AU where your soulmate’s first words to you will be tattooed on your wrist when you meet. Which freakin sucks, because Jungkook’s forearm will now forever read “Hey baby, if you were a booger, I’d pick you first.” What the fuck, universe.

maybe we found love (right where we are) by wowoashley - maybe they’re a little bit ridiculous, but people always did fall in love in the strangest ways.

i’ll be a man (of you, you, you, babe) by monsterplaza (aesthesiae) - Dates are cool. Dates with straight-laced family friends arranged by your mother are not. Thank goodness Jeon Jeongguk has his trusty best friend Kim Taehyung close by to bail him out of any dire situations.

i feel safe in the 5 a.m. light (love in my arms and the sun in my eyes) by JemKay - And Taehyung thinks he’s never loved anyone more in his life than the boy above him who’s a little bit rough and sometimes a bit insensitive and maybe a little bit mean, but he’s also so soft and so gentle, and he treats Taehyung like he’s something so precious to him. And maybe he’s like that because of Taehyung, or maybe it’s because underneath everything, underneath the tough exterior and the sky-high walls, his heart’s more delicate than Taehyung’s, but all Taehyung knows is that Jeongguk fills up all of Taehyung’s vulnerable pieces with parts of himself.

(honestly I can just never find the right words to properly praise this fic and how well she captured taekook’s dynamics. it’s absolutely perfect, for me anyways, and I highly recommend that this be one of the first you read)

trust your heart if the seas catch fire by maxx -  “Sometimes I wonder whether you’d be better off without me. Whether you really need me at all.” Taehyung has always doubted his necessity to the group, as well as to Jungkook. Usually a knock on the head would suffice to bring him back to his senses. But this time, it seems someone was listening to his request. Now, everything has changed. He’s in a world where Jungkook and the rest of the group are still famous, but he isn’t.

Give Me Your Hands (I Will Pick the Stars for You) by mindheist - I miss you like the moon misses the sun, destined to chase you until the end of time.

(the ultimate fantasy fic, so beautifully written and just lovely, but also a bittersweet ending)

the moon and the stars (are nothing without you) by wowoashley - based off the prompt: “Taekook college AU! The college tour guide raved about the uni’s friendly atmosphere and amicable student body, but wanted a high five from a cute student and all he got was a glare”

Comeback Kids by Rix - Taehyung is infuriating and Jungkook’s always been easy to rile up. Which isn’t the best combination, but also isn’t the worst, either. (or: Taekook as hockey fuckboy rivals)

(classic enemies/rivals to lovers. also if you’re interested in bottom jungkook, this is the author to go to)

Our Red Scarf (Keep Me Warm) by MirreRover - Jeongguk is trouble.  Taehyung likes trouble a bit more than he probably should. Just don’t tell Jimin about it.

Don’t Let Your Love Go To Waste by krscnl - Taehyung and Jungkook meet on Omegle.

Hit The Lights by lethallergic - 1-800-HOTLINEBLING
