tbh while I get why people don’t like established relationship fics - as a good portion of the time they’re written with your otp breaking up or their relationship consists of a lot of angst until the very end - I personally love them so much.
Like I don’t get how you could not like your otp being together, being happy, and navigating a relationship, which can be very hard, but then they work through it. Like I love reading about my otp doing the little, sweet things together as well as going through the big things together. If an established relationship fic is written right and written well, it makes for a really compelling story to me. Like, I’m in love with this couple, so I could read about them doing this and that all day long, about them smiling as they kiss and them having little squabble’s over who gets the grocery’s or who forgot to call the plumber because the toilet is still on the fritz, or who is the clean one who gets annoyed at the other’s messiness, etc, etc.
I love reading about their intimate conversations that lead to them falling even more in love with each other.
I love reading about their sexual relationship developing and changing as they try new things, but also how they become familiar with what the other person likes the more they have sex.
I love reading about my otp having a hard time but getting through it. They have fights but they make up.
But even break-up fics with an at first established relationship can be interesting - which, I feel, might be a reason why some people might not like established relationship fics - because then we get to read about them getting back together, which can also be just as sweet.
But really I just love reading about my otp being together and never giving up on each other and always working it out. tbh give me all the established relationship fics, because it feels like we so rarely get a happy ending for our fave couples in the tv shows/books/movies we consume, but with fic we can get that all we want, and with established relationship we get to see them be together when tv shows/books/movies so rarely show us a happy couple - and when they do, it feels like it isn’t long before they break them up. Which can work or not work, if it’s written well, but at this point tv shows/books/movies have done it so often that it’s tiring seeing couple and after couple break up, and most likely not be endgame in the end anyway.
But with established relationship we get to see our otps be together, which is what we really want anyway.
Not that fics that are our otps getting together aren’t amazing, because they are just as amazing and fun and wonderful.
But give me an established relationship too and I’ll eat it up like candy because yes, I get to read a story with my otp being together and happy and in love after the getting together part and I’m not just imagining it. It’s the most wonderful feeling to me to read things like that.
Just, give me all the established relationship pls.
Do you ever feel yourself falling deeper and deeper in love with a character and it’s like becoming such a fixation that it’s getting overwhelming cause you can’t even kind of think of said character without just being overcome with emotions? Cause mood.
clarke gasps as lexa eases her back onto the mattress, and presses her thighs together as she realizes what this means. lexa’s usually pliable beneath her touch. but sometimes she needs to have the upper hand; to have clarke at her mercy.
and on these rare occasions clarke is oh so ready to oblige.
lexa straddles her hips, and clarke glances down at her own shirt, nipples straining against the fabric, showing lexa just how much she wants this.
“spread your legs,” lexa whispers, and it’s all clarke can do not to whimper.
