“Where do you feel fear?” he asks, out of the blue, one day.

They’re sitting in Tsuna’s room, sprawled in various places. Tsuna is cross-legged on the floor; sitting in such a way that he can face all of them.

“Where do you feel fear?” he repeats.

What does he mean ‘where do they feel fear’? Fear is an emotion; you don’t just feel it in a specific doorway and nowhere else.

“What do you mean?” Fon inquires. His head is tilted and his confusion paints a clear picture on his face.

Tsuna sighs and touches his throat, “I feel mine here.” It clicks then. He’s asking them where the emotion starts. An intimate inquiry and he has started with the most intimate emotion: Fear.

Tsuna asks again, “Where do you feel fear?” His voice laced with curiosity and warmth. A warmth that says ‘you don’t have to answer’.

Tsuna touches his throat again, “I feel it here,” he repeats, “My throat seizes up and i can’t speak.” He grips his ankles and waits.

“My hands,” Viper says, “When i feel fear they start to tremble.”


Skull hugs his knees. “My stomach twists into knots,” he whispers.

It’s a while before the next one speaks.

“I feel it in my feet.” Lal thinks for a moment, looks conflicted, then quietly says, “They tingle.”

Fon looks up and sighs. “I feel it on my arms. When the Goosebumps start.” Fon closes his eyes and says nothing else.

Colonello falls onto his back on the floor and thinks for a while. “Legs.” He says eventually, “I feel as if i want to run.”

Verde shrugs. “My chest feels tight”. Quick, precise and to-the-point.

Reborn looks Tsuna dead in the eye when he replies. “My spine. It goes straighter when I’m afraid.”

Tsuna smiles and thanks them. Somehow this doesn’t feel as invasive as it should. Somehow, in some way, they feel lighter-as if an unknown weight has been lifted-and they smile back.

Everyone stop what you're doing and read Dragon Delights by xxxkia this is hands down the most interesting plot I've ever read for dramione and I don't say this lightly. The fic is as suspenseful as any Shona Rhimes show. The only thing I'm sorry about is that it's 11 chapters but maybe with an influx of new readers they will update. It's very much worth the read and I'm starving for more. It's amazing how much can happen in a few chapters.


Dragon Delights By: xxxkia - M, WIPDragon Delights is Diagon Alley’s newest bakery. Owner: Draco Malfoy. That’s why Harry and Ron ask him to expand into the Muggle World to spy on Granger. The Golden Girl disappeared after the war, and now it’s Draco’s task to work around a dark curse to get her to talk to him. But he was never good with Granger, so instead of talking, he decides to use his baking skills instead.

I’m Not A Spy

(A/N: I’ve always wanted to try my hand at this sort of AU!)

Soulmate AU: Kylo Ren x Reader

Plot Summary: You are a rouge hacker who tried to get into one of the First Order’s information outposts, yet unfortunately captured and taken to the Finalizer to face up to Kylo Ren. All you wanted to do was to find out whether or not your planet was on the list so you could evacuate if you needed to, but now you were here, wrists binded to a metal chair, feeling a strange, unnatural pull to him. ‘Is it the Force, or just your imagination?’ you wonder.

“God damn it.” You sighed to yourself.

All you wanted was to make sure you wouldn’t be blown up by the First Order, and now here you are. A suspect of the Resistance, you heard one of the officials call you.

You sat in the secluded room, a cold metal chair binding your wrists to the armrests, looking around the dark, bare room, drumming your fingers.

To be perfectly honest, you couldn’t care less about the Resistance and First Order shebang. Just get in, see if your planet was going to explode or not, then just focus on staying alive.

You never were a person who sided with the Light or the Dark. You would walk along the line between Light and Dark, just dealing with what happens as it goes.

Your train of thought was quickly disrupted by the harsh scraping of metal as the door slid open.

Looking up, you were face-to-mask with the infamous ‘Kylo Ren’.

CSBB: Part of the Narrative (9/17)

Emma Swan just wants to write the follow-up to her bestselling debut novel, that’s all. But when she gets off to a rough start with her new editor, Killian Jones, she knows it’s not going according to plan.

A writer/editor AU with a thriller twist.

Rated E. Includes sexual content, kidnapping, some gore, and minor character death–not to mention salty language! On Ao3 here.

Chapter warnings: Lots of profanity, light espionage, and incomplete revelations.

Chapter 9

Cleo figures out what’s going on with Killian working for August and what August wants.


Cleo sighed, looking over the notes she’d been taking on her iPad one last time. Sitting at her desk in her office after hours was hardly her idea of fun, but she didn’t want to bring this kind of work home with her. She didn’t want her “research” to be on the work server, didn’t need anyone to know about her digging into this odd situation with Jones.

And, most especially, she didn’t want to be right.

The Duchess and the Spy

Author name: teaandcathair
Artist name: serenity-fails

Story Title: The Duchess and the Spy
Link to story: Voilà!
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: This is a Genderswap Regency romance AU, containing rampant historical anachronism, slapdash borrowing from canon, trashy regency romance tropes, vague Tevinter nastiness toward queer people, and one extremely brief reference to marital/corrective rape. Plus, fisting!

Story summary:

Doria is the Duchess of House Pavus— the only heir of a powerful and ambitious family, and a favorite of the Tevinter Regency gossip mill. The Iron Bull is a mercenary captain from the colonies, whose service to the Imperium has led her into high society with her small company in tow for several weeks of fêtes and parties.

The two meet first at a soirée, then again when Bull accidentally climbs into Doria’s library window in search of letters regarding a Venatori conspiracy against the Inquisition—and despite how mismatched they may seem, the pull between them is too much to ignore. Has Doria found the answer to her problems in a seven-foot-tall Tal-Vashoth woman with one eye and the most horrid taste in clothing she’s ever witnessed?

You’d think spying on the Russians would require some training, but when Naveed Jamali started working as a double agent for the FBI, he had none. “Probably some Magnum P.I. episodes and a few movies here and there,” he says. “That was about it.”

In How To Catch A Russian Spy, Jamali traces his path to espionage.

growingoldinneverland  asked:

Can you do a lesbian RP? We're desperate for some representation (and I can't even really -find- a historical lesbian with a cool backstory. Maybe you have better luck than I do?)

It’s a little hard to even determine a lot of historical peoples’ sexuality in modern-day terms. Like, if someone marries a dude but starts hooking up with a woman immediately thereafter, is she bi? A lesbian who was playing the best hand she was dealt? Almost nobody wrote in their diary explicit details of who they were and were not attracted to. It’s tricky.

So keeping in mind that virtually everyone I could suggest is on a whole Kinsey scale spectrum, and that someone out there is going to debate what their sexuality actually was, there’s a possibility I’ve already done at least one lesbian RP: Catalina de Erauso. She never hooked up with a dude her entire life, although she did get intimate with several women.

Here are some other interesting historical candidates. Some may be in the book, and take the one-line summaries with a grain of salt, they’re my scratch notes from 3 minutes of googling five months ago:

  • Annemarie Scharzenbach (swiss journalist/explorer who had large number of affairs and died young)
  • Ulricka Eleonora Stalhammar (lived as man, married, was put on trial for lesbianism)
  • Aphra Behn (author, spy, thrown into debtors prison, wrote plays about male impotence and lesbian romance, remarked she was made to be a nun)
  • Christina of Sweden (unmarried, abdicated throne to become art patron and adventurer)
  • Adah Isaacs Menken (stage performer who bounded off stage during one performance to hit critic with a riding crop)
  • Kate Marsden (nurse/explorer who traveled across Siberia alone, was put on trial for homosexuality and won)

Hope that’s helpful!
