Favorite SLBP blogs ?

Hi nonny! Firstly I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to reply! Work sucks at the moment.
((…I’m supposed to be working right now, don’t tell my boss. 😂))

Favourite slbp blogs? That’s a tough one, I lurk on so many of them xD

EDIT: this turned into a list of my favourite authors xD! Whoops.

In no particular order~

@zacroix - senpai writes amazing fics that you should absolutely check out! She’s a multi-voltage fandom blog but her Saizo smut fics are defs worth a read!

@yoolee also has some amazing fics, her Saizo fic “Heights” was the first Saizo fic I’d ever read. (Also smut, so nsfw. ^^u)

@incorrect-slbp-quotes for when you need a laugh. I love reading the quotes, some of them are so spot on, it’s hilarious xD

@jemchew please go show her some love and affection. Her works are poetry in motion and they’re all so beautifully written. And she could absolutely use some support right now ♡

@sengokugenkigirl has these amazing modern au series that you absolutely have to read! And their HC are amazing too!

@frywen-babbles I’ve just marathoned all of their fics and now my heart is in pieces on the floor. Absolutely go check them out if you need to not feel for a while xD

@mikawa-province is the go to for all of your Petulant Little Brat Lord needs. The way they write Ieyasu is incredible, I love reading them all over and over again.

As for general sweethearts and fun people to talk to, please see @cottonballwithmustache ((is cotton-oneechan back yet? I haven’t seen them in a while :c)), @saizoswife , @sugoileo, @thedaydreamingotaku, @kakki-neko, @noomsu

Honourable mentions go to the insane amount of rp blogs for the Lords, which I won’t tag her because this post is already very long.

Whew. I still feel like I’ve forgotten people, and I’m really sorry! I’m also really sorry for randomly tagging people in this post 😂😂😂

*crawls back into the abyss*

Positivity Post

Listen, I get that there are some issues with Andromeda. The first few hours of the game really feel like they’re trying to find their footing, which isn’t hard to understand - it must have been really hard and stressful to create a game that measures up to the trilogy.

But I’m really sick of the constant posts shitting all over the game and I’ve talked to lots of people who feel the same. It seems like a lot of people are worried about posting anything positive at all for fear or retribution.

So here, have a nice happy post about some of the AMAZING things about this game, which in my opinion totally holds up as a new addition to the series.

  • Awesome hair animation. I’m totally in love with how natural the hair looks. It moves around, looks great, and flows naturally.
  • The dialogue system. This is probably the first time in a video game that I actually feel like I can develop my own personality and have a truly unique OC. Plus, you can develop different relationships with different characters, which truly makes you feel invested in the world.
  • The side quests. There are some fetch quests, sure, but I’ve never found them to be boring. They’re always grounded in a story. I find the quests to be meaningful and interesting and engaging.
  • SQUAD MATES! This might be the first game where I absolutely adore every single person on your crew. The characters feel real and they all experience really touching character growth over the course of the game.
  • FRIEND DATES!! Maybe my favourite detail that’s been added to this - the nice outings you get with your squad after you earn their loyalty. Every single one was so touching and I treasure those moments.
  • ALIEN SEX okay so I’m obviously biased on that one…
  • Beautiful landscapes. I’ve come across some small landscape bugs, but in general each world feels unique and realistic. I love parking the Nomad on top of a hill and just admiring the scenery.
  • THE NOMAD BANTER! They absolutely nailed the banter in this game, I’ve teared up a few times while listening. I love it when squadmates can help each other with things that you can’t because they have different experiences than you. It feels realistic and wonderful.
  • Truly touching moments. I don’t want to say more for fear of spoiling anything, but I’ve cried so much at this game.
  • RYDER. Holy lord in heaven I love Ryder. They’re so well-written and totally hold their own against Shepard. They experience character development over the course of the game, the voice acting is fantastic, and basically I just really love Ryder holy shit

Please feel free to add your own, I really love this game and I’d love to see more people focusing on the things that make it so incredible.

Also if you see this and absolutely need to be negative, please keep it far away and make your own post. I understand that people have complaints, but I’m 150% done with hearing about them.

Much love to my fellow Andromeda explorers!

Yuuri and Victor Fight


First Fight by apollosoyuz, Gen, 2.4k
The first time they fought was loud and then quiet. In which Yuuri panics and blames Viktor, and Viktor doesn’t realize the impact his petty response will have on Yuuri until it’s too late. Fluffy ending!

Break the Cycle by SigmundFreud, Explicit, 26k
College AU where ex boyfriends Yuuri and Victor can’t stay away from each other. LOTS of mutual pining, arguments, miscommunication, and, of course, angst. Thumbs up!

Submerge by cryingoverspilledvodka, Mature, 38k
The pining and angst is real in this one! Full of angry Yuuri and an equally frustrated Victor. Takes place after their first argument. Relationships aren’t easy, and Victor and Yuuri are no exception.

selfish by MissSpock, Gen, 1.9k
“…Aren’t you going to stop me?” He hated how his voice wobbled and cracked, and he had to fight to keep the tears in his eyes.
Yuuri’s brows creased. The mist had cleared from the lenses of his glasses and he looked at Victor with confused, amber eyes. “Why should I? It seems as though you’ve come to a decision.” Role reversal of ep 11. *sobs*

Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches by Reiya, Explicit, 166k (WIP)
Pretty sure everyone’s read this one… but if you haven’t, do! Rivals AU where Yuuri’s main goal, ever since he was a child, is to beat Victor and win the GPF. SO MUCH ANGST (like, so much) and deliciously hot, hot, hot! You might die from reading this… it’s that good. My personal favourite!

Trouble in Paradise by DarkDemon, Gen, 1.3k
After their first fight as a couple, Yuuri feels absolutely horrible and tracks Viktor down at the rink so they can talk about it. Thumbs up!

turbulence by fan_nerd, Teen, 1.9k
Yuuri could get frustrated and tired and impatient, but he’s never called Victor out of his name. He’s far too polite for that. The word idiot rings in Victor’s head like he’s been slapped. They fight, they make up!

Nerve Endings by Phyona, Explicit, 47k (WIP)
When Yuuri moves in with Victor in St. Petersburg, they have to work through Yuuri’s anxiety and Victor’s secrets to find their balance. LOVE THIS FIC OMG!

Hold Me Tight by smudgesofink, Teen, 11k
To say that Victor is touchy-feely is the understatement of the century. So when Victor just stops touching Yuuri, without explanation, without reason, it makes for a painfully jarring experience. It’s all fluff… then goes straight into the depths of angst.. *cries*

The Argument by Woubazoid, Not Rated, 1.1k
Viktor wants to pick a fight. Fluffy!

From The Moon by ButterBeerBitch, Mature, 4.8k
That one time Victor finds out why Yuuri has never let him inside his bedroom because….well, we all know why… happy ending!

Of Glass and Gold by smudgesofink, Teen, 4.4k
In which Victor is gold–magnificent, breathtaking, brilliant–and Yuuri is glass–transparent, thin, breakable. Great fic!

Anything You Want by Flightless_Bird, Teen, 2.6k
Victor’s heart stung. He knew that he shouldn’t get annoyed when he was clearly in the wrong; but it still hurt to think that Yuuri believed a few flashing cameras were more important to Victor than him. Love this!

Do you know any Drarry fics with Harry or Draco being an animagus?

Do I know any animagus fics? BOI I LIVE FOR THEM!! They’re my absolute favourite trope ever and I’m so excited and happy that you requested this because I can now unleash the mass of animagus stories I’ve been accumulating in my archive.

Enjoy!

  • Between A Tiger and A Stag - by Copper Vixen (65k)
    Can six illegal animagi survive the Forbidden Forest, Death Eater attacks, and each other?
    (This was the first animagus story I ever read and it brought upon my love for the whole trope! The writing and words are so mesmerising and beautiful. I think I fell more in love with the story because it wasn’t just one character that was an animagus, but 6 (Harry, Hermione, Ron, Draco, Pansy and Blaise). The fic was left on a bittersweet ending which I found marvellous. Honestly, my words can’t do it justice, this story was just fabulous)

  • Where’s Granger When You Need Her? - by playout (11k)
    Hogwarts’ Potions Master is working on an experimental brew. He really should know better than to turn his back on an unstable potion. Now if only there were someone in the castle who could help…
    (This fic was amazing because Draco is a FERRET! Yes, that’s right. A ferret. What more do I need to say? :D)

  • Secret Heart - by alaana_fair (4k)
    Draco had long ago admitted to himself that he’d fallen in love with the tiger, but he still refused to admit that he’d fallen in love with the man. That admission would simply cost too much.
    (Gahhh I adored this fic! Harry’s animagus form is a tiger, but he has difficulty changing back to a human. So each time Harry transforms, he is sent off to Draco Malfoy who happens to be the only other tiger animagi in the UK. But omg plot twist, when he turns back into a human Harry never remembers what happened when he stays over with Draco. or does he? You’ll have to read to find out! :D)

  • A Panther’s Heart - by Copper Vixen (80k)
    Harry gets caught while in his animagus form and is purchased to be a familiar to his worst enemy.
    (By his father’s wishes, Draco is bonded to a familiar…it ends up being Harry in his animagus form)

  • Fur and Feathers - by Lomonaaeren (4k)
    Lucius thinks Harry and Draco’s desires are as incompatible as their Animagus forms. It takes a momentary glimpse to change his mind
    (Narcissa is dying. Draco and Harry constantly fight and Lucius is confused about their temptestuous relationship)

  • The Kitten Prince of Slytherin - by thenerd1026 (10k)
    Draco’s animagus form is a Kneazle. A baby Kneazle. When he gets stuck in Kneazle form, guess who takes him in?
    (OMG SOOO cute and flufy! I loved how expressive and Draco-ish Draco was as a kneazle. I loved all the sweet moments Harry and kitten!Draco shared together. And I especially loved Harry calling Draco ‘Blondie’ while he was a kitten)

  • Hissy Fit - by dysonrules (28k)
    Harry is an under-utilized Auror and Draco is an auditor for Gringotts. He lives to torment the Ministry and, of course, Harry Potter. He is also a Registered Animagus.
    (Hilarious and fun! It’s where Draco helps Harry on one of his auror missions by transforming into his animagus form - a snake. The banter between Harry and Draco is amazing and you’ll probably suffer from a cuteness overload while reading this story)

  • Dragons With Silver Linings (or Harry Potter is a Treasure) - by megyal (9k)
    Harry is living a life most ordinary; maybe a dragon can shake things up.
    (Harry works at Gringotts in retribution for stealing the dragon during the war. He didn’t expect to see Malfoy, as a dragon, guarding vaults. Sexy times ensue)

  • Please, Not a Ferret - by Elfflame (0.8k)
    Draco’s about to find out what his animagus form is.
    (And he prays that his animagus form isn’t a ferret)

  • The Wolf Pack - by HowDracoGotHisGrooveBack (14k)
    Nobody said achieving your animagus form was easy. Draco could handle being a wolf pup for a while, right? How bad could it be?
    (A story where two wolves regularly meet in the Forbidden Forest, yet neither of them know that the other is an animagus. Love, love, loved reading this story!)

  • Flight of the Draco Malfoy - by zionsstarfish (2k)
    The seventh years try their hands at Animagus Transfiguration.
    (Such a charming story! I loved how Harry is a Snidget because it’s just so unconventional and unique (if ya’ll don’t know what a Snidget is, it’s basically a a puffy little golden bird that was used in Quidditch, but they replaced it with the Snitch)) 

  • Unexpected, A Holiday Tail of Mistaken Identity - by amightypenguin (25k)
    After an accident involving a two year old and a wand, Harry much to his dismay is sent to Draco, who believes he’s caring for a pet. A large pet with a bad attitude.
    (DRACO IS THE MOST PRECIOUS AND LOVELY HUMAN BEING IN THIS STORY!!!! Like oh my god guys he’s the absolute sweetest, caring for injured horses (magical and non-magical) and goofing around with a Newfoundland and falling in love with its bumbling and adorable antics (but little does Draco know that the Newfoundland is actually Harry. shhhh))

  • The Kneazle Who Came for Christmas - by enchanted_jae (7k)
    Banished from his home during the holiday season with only his wand and the clothes he’s wearing, Draco has no choice but to take on his Animagus form and hope someone will take him in.
    (I was squeeling at how adorable Kneazle!Draco is. The little domestic snapshots between Kneazle!Draco and Harry were lovely and it was just such a fun story to read!)

  • The Owl Who Came for Christmas - by dracogotgame (17k)
    Draco has a debt to pay off, no matter what Potter thinks. And he has a Very Good Idea to go along with it. Things don’t go as planned.
    (A really nice, feel good story! Draco is definitely my favourite owl (soz Hedwig) and I love how happy Draco made Harry while he was in owl form)

  • Things That Seem - by Maeglin Yedi
    A potion gone wrong. A desperate wish. A new future. And a…horse?
    (A potions accident causes Harry to wake up in an alternate reality where he’s a horse animagus and currently dating Draco Malfoy?? And the ending, oh god the ending is what made me love this story even more because it just ties everything together)

  • The Haumiaroa Magical Society for the Conservation of Indigenous Wildlife - by  musamihi (15k)
    Harry escapes to New Zealand in search of privacy and relaxation, only to find himself caring for an injured (and ungrateful) kiwi chick. After releasing the bird into the wild, he’s more than a little surprised to find it waiting for him when he arrives in Peru for the second part of his vacation – and to discover that it can spell. Poorly.
    (Tired of being in the spotlight, Harry escapes to NZ and stumbles across (lol, he more collided than stumbled) a kiwi. I couldn’t help but grin at Kiwi!Draco’s poor attempt at spelling :D Lovely fic!)

  • He Was He and I Was Bunny - by bryoneybrynn (37k)
    The war is over and “eighth year” is about to begin at Hogwarts. But for Harry and Draco, nothing is quite the same. Harry’s looking for an escape, Draco’s looking for a friend. Does a little black bunny hold the answers for both of our boys?
    (Ahh this fic is one of my all time favourites! Bunny!Harry is so adorable, and I loved how Draco was able to relax and be himself around Bunny!Harry. But then the drama starts kicking in when Draco realises that the little Bunny he’s been caring for his Harry all along and arrggh, I won’t spoil anything more but this story is a must read!)

  • all you ever did was wreck me - by SailorChibi (10k)
    After the war, the Ministry decides to make a clean go of it and sentences all Death Eaters to death. After a year spent imprisoned beneath the Ministry, with his mother safely in France, his father dead and only the Aurors who hate him for “company”, Draco is waiting for his time to die.Harry gets to him first.
    (I burst into hysterics when I read that Harry was a ferret animagus - honestly, that’s the most ironic thing I’ve ever seen. A lovely story and definitely wants me wishing for more!)

  • Love Isn’t Easy - by Bam4Me (5k)
    The thing about letting someone find their animagus so early in life, is that it’s no longer an extension of yourself, it’s like telling your child to choose between human, and not.
    (This was awesome! Kitten!Harry is adorable and it’ll leave you smiling for days. And I loved that Harry communicated to Draco through legilimency while he was in this form)

  • Ain’t No Friend Of Mine - by (lettered) (33k)
    Draco has to face the truth of who he is. The truth has long hair and slobbers.
    (A captivating piece of work! I lived for snarky Draco and and his portrayal as a dog. The non-linear timeline worked really well. And the inner turmoil within Harry was so realistic and credible)

  • Endangered Familiar - by ravenpan (8k)
    After the war, all he wanted was some peace and quiet. What he got, was a penguin that brought the exact opposite
    (One of the most beautifully written fanfictions I have ever read! I loved how despite being a very cute and, in general, lighthearted fic, there was also a more emotional and serious side to it as well)

  • Wascally - by dysonrules (6k)
    Draco finds an ickle wounded birdy in the forest…
    (Sweet, funny and sexy! In which Draco finds a white dove in the Forbidden Forest and names it Harry…Oh if only Draco knew how ironic that name was)

  • Blind Faith - by SunseticMonster (21k)
    Don’t think of it as losing your sight. Think of it as gaining an Animagus who never quite learned the meaning of the word ‘boundaries’.
    (This story can never get enough hearts <333 Draco has been temporarily blinded from an attack in Diagon Alley. It’s now up to a friendly dog *cough*Harry*cough* to help guide him and investigate into the attack)

An overdue list of my favourite pieces and fic writers! The following is a collection of Jungkook x reader fics. A big thank you to all the fic writers included for inspiring me and above all sharing such amazing stories!

Favourite “pages” of Doukyuusei

I decided to share with you one of my most memorable pages from the doukyuusei series manga :) I absolutely love the whole manga nonetheless I consider some of pages my favourite because of that memorable situation happening there…

This post will be long I believe…

Doukyuusei

I love this page the most in first Doukyuusei manga…and I love situation here a little bit more than in a movie (I just didn’t say that righ now xD –> favourite scene in movie also) …I particularly like this one because of the Kusakabe reaction on drunk Sajou :) The whole situation is SO SERIOUS but drunk sajou made it THE CUTEST :D <3

I don’t know but this page is that one that I remebered the most. Maybe because Kusakabe mentioned dumb xD Here we see the different side of Kusakabe when he’s not with Sajou…like he’s thinking of that kind of stuff too..and asking sensei for advice..and mentionig the yaoi books that his sister reads,,all that in one page :P


Sotsugyousei

The whole page is filled with Sajou’s LOVE YOU…To see Sajou so in love is so precious. He never openly show it..but his is mind is exploding…

Just that situation…lying on bed…kusakabe just took shower…relaxed…kusakabe telling sajou the sweetest things :D <3

Don’t ask me..that scene is in my mind everytime when I think about Sajou being home alone xD I liked the smooth development situation…lying..making eye contact…slowly progressing to the kiss…KISS :*

I was Kusakabe here…I wanted to hug Sajou so badly… so glad Kusakabe did :) feeling glad…soo glad

Sajou my precious baby :’(

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 DELIVERED...

hell yea so here are my thoughts it’s really spoilery because the show came out here yesterday and i watched it just now (at night) so i may be incoherent bear with me!! 

- starting from the ending, ADAM WARLOCK WILL BE IN THE SERIES. so fans speculated he’d show up in this movie because of the after credits scene in the last Guardians movie depicting a broken cocoon. that was a good guess but it was incorrect. he didn’t show up in the movie at all he actually came up in the post credits scene! ‘She’ (or Ayesha) supposedly created him and decided to give ‘He’ the name Adam aka Warlock. 

- in the comics Warlock is given the Soul Stone and currently that’s the last Infinity Stone so it’s going to be amazing to see whether or not he comes into owning it (theories are that Heimdall possesses the last stone, it’s going to be interesting!!) 

- i hate Peter’s dad. screw him HOW DARE HE PUT A TUMOR INTO PETER’S MUM’S HEAD WTH????? die you prick die (though Peter with the cool energy thing from being half celestial was rather amazing, pretty sad he doesn’t have that power source anymore unless the marvel creators decide on a new source) also Ego (his dad) having thousands of children just to find a compatible one to rule the universe (aka destroy it) with him is just awful ew 

- BABY GROOT IS PRECIOUS I WILL KILL YOU  IF YOU COME NEAR HIM (the flipping part where Ego the arsehole was trying kill the Guardians and Groot was being squished and he started crying oh my god my heart) also him not understading crap is adorable (PRECIOUS BABY OF THE GROUP) also the post credit scene with teenage Groot going through puberty was hilarious i’m dead. ALSO HIM DANCING WHILE THE REST ARE FIGHTING A MONSTER AND THEM CONSTANTLY HAVING TO TAKE CARE OF HIM aka GAMORA WAVING HI, ROCKET STOPPING MID WAY TO TELL HIM TO SPIT OUT A BUG AND HIM BEING ANGRY AT DRAX FOR DESTROYING THE STEREO PLAYING THE SONG HE WAS DANCING TO LMAO 

- Mantis is precious and innocent and oh my god Drax going “you’re ugly” and then going “that’s good cause if someone loves you then you know they do.” beautiful people don’t know who to trust - absolutely true. and at the end when he went “you’re beautiful, on the inside” #yes 

- Peter and Gamora are my first hetero ship in years. #thisunspokenthing (them dancing to Sam Cooke was just awwwww) 

- Peter being a precious bean and carrying around a photo of Hassleholf all the time to pretend that he’s his father and all he wanted was to play ball with his father and the first thing he did with Ego was play with a ball of energy. it’s a sweet moment despite how dubious the whole thing seemed. 

- Nebula character development was one of my favourite things ever because she went for “i will kill you Gamora” to “I just wanted a sister” gosh the feels, such a good movie. 

- Gamora, Drax and Rocket referring to the  Guardians as a family #best

- Groot making Yondu an honorary Guardian 

- Yondu being the best father figure to Peter ever and him dying and me sobbing horribly in the theatre (my awesome friend was crying with me and she was handing me tissues bless) 

- okay symbolism time, Peter had his Sony WALKMAN to listen to his mum’s Awesome Mixes and when Ego destroys this, he eventually receives another device from Yondu to listen to over 300 songs on. The WALKMAN is akin to his old family (his mother and Ego) and his new player is a representation of his new family (the Guardians and Yondu) 

- Ayesha (’She’) is pretty cool but christ she is scary. The Sovereignty armada is pretty cool, it’s like a giant arcade where the people are shooting their targets virtually through drones. Pretty interesting stuff (especially with the video game noises) 

- Rocket being referred to as a “triangle-faced-monkey”, “raccoon”, “fox” etcetera. and him being a giant softie inside because of his beginings (also him referring to Ego as a one-inch-tall man and winking with his wrong eye HAHA) 

- i laughed too much during this movie bless me 

- STAN LEE IN SPACE

- Sylvester Stallone !!

- 700 jumps and face warping #priceless 

- Howard the Duck cameo 

- TAZERFACE

- horrendous inneundos everywhere help 

- FANTASTIC SPACE FIREWORKS FOR YONDU’S FUNERAL YAS HONOUR HIM YALL

SUCH A GOOD SHOW IM SO HAPPY GUYS GO WATCH IT SOON OKAY edit : omg i typed this at 3am and wrote Arnold Schwarzenegger instead of Sylvester Stallone oh my brain HAHAHAHA

Hey do you have any drarry fics where children are involved? Like teddy?

Gah, Teddy is an absolute sweetheart in all of these fics, you’ll definitely fall in love with him! I enjoyed making this rec list so much because I totally forgot how much I enjoyed reading stories about Teddy <33

  • Trust Me As I Trust You - by maschapluis (11k)
    While working on a high profile case, Harry receives full guardianship and custody over Teddy Lupin. He takes some time off to get to know the boy, but when work calls he had to find someone to take care of Teddy.
    Harry finds a babysitter in the one person he never thought would ever want anything to do with him or the small boy, Draco Malfoy.  Teddy trusts Draco instantly and without hesitation, so what’s a wizard to do other than to trust him as well? Even if he can’t be sure to trust himself around the other wizard.
    (I enjoyed reading this so much! Teddy was adorbs in this story, and overall it was just such a cute, funny and heartwarming fic!)

  • Somebody to Love - by khasael (31k)
    Draco’s life after the war is quite different than it used to be. When he finds himself cursed, with little hope for lifting the spell, he sets out to make the most of the time he has left. Getting to know his Aunt Andromeda and his young cousin Teddy feels like a good thing to do, even if it can’t help him in the long run…or can it?
    (A fic where Draco has been cursed so that he would die a premature death, unless someone fell in love with him. The slow build up between our two favourite boys was lovely to watch. A slow, and very tender story!)

  • Where your heart is set - by hazel_wand (13k)
    Draco comes home from school to find that his mother has decided to rebuild their family to include Andromeda, Teddy … and Harry Potter.
    (Narcissa and Andromeda begin to amend things between them; thus forcing Draco and Harry to be in close contact with each other and the love story between them is so amazing and pure)

  • It Was We Who Were The Cliché (But We Carried On Anyway) - by ignatiustrout (31k)
    When the reconciled Black sisters go on holiday together, Andromeda entrusts Draco, rather than Harry, with five year old Teddy Lupin for three weeks. Harry is convinced she made the wrong choice, and he decides the way to fix this is simply to keep turning up at the manor and refusing to leave Draco alone.
    (A delight to read! Everything about this story is utterly spectacular and perfect. I had a blast reading it <3)

  • A Second Chance at First - by Lovetaradiane (28k)
    “… I just wanted you to know that you weren’t the only one who’d had a shitty existence for a time. Maybe I hated that you thought I was someone I wasn’t. Maybe … maybe I hated that I thought you were someone you weren’t, but never realised it until Voldemort gave me those glimpses of your life. Our experiences, they weren’t so different after all.”
    (Harry rushes Teddy to St. Mungos’ after falling sick, and Draco is his healer. Healer!Draco is my favourite type of Draco, it just suits him so well, and a Slytherin!Teddy is absolutely marvellous)

  • A Lesson in Love and Ice Cream - by protegonox (18k)
    The only thing keeping Draco together is his structured routine, which begins and ends with ice cream. Then Potter shows up, godson in tow, and his fragile balance is put to the test.
    (Omg I’m in love with stories where Draco leaves the magical community and instead chooses to live amongst muggles. Draco owns an ice-cream shop in Canada and it’s just gorgeous)

  • Against All Odds - by momatu (53k)
    Beauxbatons is hosting the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe, and Harry has promised to enroll Teddy as his birthday present. Meanwhile, Draco is stuck in his office, putting together the first ever Quidditch Summer School for children from all over Europe during, when he should be enjoying summer holidays.
    (Draco, a Flying Instructor at Beauxbatons, is hosting an international Quidditch training camp. Harry brings Teddy and ends up staying to coach. The scenes where Draco tour Harry around France and takes him to all of his favourite place are all so sweet!)

  • Vulnera Sanentur - by sw33tch3rrypi3 (6k)
    Harry can’t believe what’s on the list of required textbooks Teddy needs for his next year of Hogwarts. For DADA it’s Some Bloody Idiot Might Cast It, So You’d Better Be Able to Counter It by Draco Malfoy. Harry thinks the title refers to him casting Sectumsempra on Draco Malfoy in their sixth year and goes to confront him
    (Teddy is just so precious, so very precious in this story!)

  • Muggle Beasts and Where to Find Them - by ashindk (8k)
    Two single fathers choose the same day to take their children on an outing.
    (This fic left me grinning like a huge fool! Harry and Teddy are at the zoo, and they come across a lost Scorpius. They all set off on a mission to find Draco, and it’s all so very lovely. Kudos for Draco being an A+ dad in this story as well!)

  • Like a Real Family - by Queenie_Mab (11k)
    Harry thought he had all he wanted in life, raising Teddy and being the parent he’s always wanted to be, until he experiences what life with a partner could be like. Now if only Draco wasn’t straight.

To quote a friend, re: the first one: “THE BEST PROMPTOGRAPH”

universe-queen-melissa  asked:

Thoughts on Milo and Veronica? :3

If you mean as a ship, absolutely not. I definitely don’t ship that.

If you mean friendship, then I think it’s one of my favourite relationships in the show. It not only shows how Milo only had one other friend before Melissa and Zack came into the picture, but it also demonstrates that there are more people besides Melissa and Zack who are willing to overlook the Murphy Curse and love him for who he is, believe that he has more potential. Veronica was the first outside source of encouragement for him in life, and I’m sure her personality and confidence in both herself and him, helped Milo become who he is now.

Okay, I just hit 500 followers and I thought it was a good occasion to share some of my favourite YoI fanfics! I hope you find some you like!

Viktor x Yuuri

Beside the Dancing Sea by lily_winterwood and MapleTreeway
Rating: Explicit, finished (13/13 chapters), words: 186584
This has to be my favourite fanfiction of all times. It is just everything you want a fanfiction to be and more: fluffy, sexy, emotional, funny, and creative.The story takes place in a fictional town in Scotland, Viktor is an author seeking for inspiration and Yuuri is a selkie. The setting is amazing, the characters are all beautifully portrayed, the writing is amazing, it is even multimedia, adding a nice touch to everything and it is overall just amazing and wholesome and an experience. Once you start reading, you don’t want to stop.

starstruck by shizuoh:
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences, finished (18/18 chapters), words: 58955
An AU in which Viktor is a famous actor and single father of a young little boy named Yuri.Yuuri, who is a simple barrista, somehow ends up as the babysitter. A beautiful slow burn fanfiction with a lot of feels and dorks who are pining and and the sweetest little boy Yuri. One of the first fics I read after getting into the fandom and still one of my absolute favourites.

Rise Above the Tides by Kashoku:
Rating: Explicit, finished (11/11 chapters), words: 34869

This fanfiction, my guys… It’s very angsty, dark (in the truest sense of the word) and sad. But it’s amazing and it won’t leave you alone after you start reading, you just want to know how it goes on and you really want to hug the heck out of poor boy Yuuri. The story revolves around Yuuri who becomes blind after an accident and how he has to deal with his new disability… which isn’t good.
It’s gonna be okay, though.

It Doesn’t Have to be a Lie by Recesskup:
Not Rated, unfinished (20/? chapters), words: 54986
This fanfiction is set in a College AU and is about Dance major Yuuri who has a raging crush on Photography major Viktor and accidently tells his parents that Viktor is his new boyfriend and will come with him to Japan. To his surprise Viktor is willing to visit Yuuri’s family and pretend they’re in a relationship. Overall just really fluffy and cute, mostly two dorks who are pining over each other with a little bit of angst as well.

Tu meum Animum by bratinella:
Rating: General, unfinished (13/? chapters), words: 47879
My favourite Hogwarts AU out there. Unfortunately I don’t know if the story will be continued, but it’s either way worth to read it. It’s about a certain Russian Slytherin boy who is pining over a certain Japanese Gryffindor boy and how they become friends and very slowly even more than that. But there is also the Triwizard Tournament which is making things a little bit more dificult, for Viktor at least.

What happens in Vegas Stays In Vegas by Gayson:
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences, finished (4/4 chapters), words: 21525
The most hilarious bachelor party. In Vegas. Honestly, I laughed so hard while reading this fanfiction. All of our boys are really drunk and do some really stupid things, but they have the time of their lives. Also Viktuuri wedding, what more do you want?

Otabek x Yurio

More Than He Bargained For by Follow Your Dreams:
Rating: Explicit, unfinished (15/20 chapters), words: 60838
My guys. I’m hooked since I started to read this fanfiction and I always wait anxiously for the next update, because it is that good. Because Yuri has done something wrong his parents sent him to the Altins in hope that their son Otabek maybe is a good influence on him. Lots of feels, lots of fluff, lots of moments in which you just want to hug them and tell them they will be okay. There is some angst going on, but at the same time it just. So. Sweet. My heart.

Wolves of the Wilderness by NinjaMatty:
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences, unfinished (33/? chapters), words: 127277
This story is set in a dystopian future in which Otabek is a citizen who knows he has to die, because he is seen as useless for the society due to his unability to have children. Someday his doctor Viktor Nikiforov appears at his doorstep and leaves him with a blond, wounded boy…. This story leaves you on edge the whole time you read it. It is something so entirely different from everything I’ve read so far and you could easily think this was a real novel. Beside the amazing plot with a lot of unexpected twists and turns, it’s also the most bitter-sweet slow burn ever.

Hashtags by abrandnewheart:
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences, one shot, words: 7192
This fanficition devasted me. This is the saddest shit you’ll ever read, probably. No, really, it is amazing and I loved it, but it’s just very sad. So if you’re in the mood for a little heart break and a few tears, than go ahead and read this. For a little twist is this not an AU, but canon compliant if I remember correctly and is based on Otabeks unrequited love towards his best friend.

Not your usual love story by arcsinx:
Rating: Explicit, unfinished (18/? chapters), words: 62034
Not gonna lie, this fic is very smutty and full of sexual tension. But I really like the idea of Model!Yuri and DJ!Beka and how it’s portrayed. I really love their dynamics here and also Gentleman!Otabek. I have a great weakness for Otabek being a gentleman, to be honest (and so does Yuri).

Six Kinds of Love by Frilly_Axolotl:
Rating: Explicit, unfinished (13/? chapters), words: 50920
I put it to the Otayuri fraction of this list, because Viktuuri already has so many fics, haha. This fanfiction is really dark and if you are interested, please read the tags beforehand. There might be some triggering things… The story is set in a world in which slaves are legal and the Yuris have been slaves of two terrible men until they are rescued by Viktor Nikiforov. The story is very interesting. It shows the process of the Yuris to adjust to the new situation, which isn’t abusive anymore and their new masters Viktor and Otabek, who both insist that they aren’t really their masters. Needless to say, it’s very angsty and not very fluffy or romantic.

sea town by dolcette:
Rating: Mature, one shot, words: 1682
This is a short and sweet fanfiction about our boys going on vacation, but way better put into words. This one is more about the feeling and the atmosphere of the story than the actual plot itself. The writing is beautiful and poetic.

Fic Rec Day!

I’m pretty sure I’m not late to the party! I wanted to first off say a massive thank you to all the fic writers out there! You give up so much of your time and you deliver the most beautiful pieces of art! I wish I was talented enough to draw or photoshop something for each of the fics on the list, but I am a talentless beast. 

Here come the fic!!! (Bold ones are my absolute faves)


  •  One the Other by @ruby–wednesday - My absolute favorite fic in the fandom. It’s a canon divergence. It’s so dialog and plot driven there’s so much character development. It’s absolutely incredible.
  • The Consummation by @josselinkohl - Exactly what it sounds like, only far far better. Probably my favourite sex scene in the fandom. 
  • Marks of Fate by @fahye - It’s the third and final part of the Lines on Palms series and it’s the best one. An absolute treat. 
  • Love of the Second Star by SteelStingray - Another canon divergence au. It’s a WIP so don’t say I didn’t tell you! I only read the first chapter and it’s amazing but I refuse to continue until it’s done! 
  • Size King by magisterpavus - There’s nothing I love more than people in love having sex. Also I am a firm believer that Laurent is indeed a size queen and that Damen is hung like a fucking wildebeest. This fic explores said beliefs.  
  • You’re Always Waking in the Night by @thankyoumerlin - A five and one time fic about them being in bed. So much better than what I make it sound like. 
  • A firm Hold of My Heart by @jithongchy - They get married. 
  • A Better Side of You to Admire by yekoc - I really like the dynamics here. And Damen bottoms. 
  • Relinquishing Control by @exy-king - Part of the Stages of Control series and it’s just wonderful, beautiful smut. Also it keeps up with my headcanon that Laurent and Damen get off on dirty talk. 
  • Murmur of the Land by @blacktofade - It’s an alternative take on the tent scene. Really well done and very much in character. 

Honourable Mentions: 

Turns out I love A Lot™ of works by the same people, so instead of recing each fic I’ll just urge you to go read anything by @delfeur @josselinkohl @fahye @ruby–wednesday. You honestly do not understand how incredible their fics are. I could go on for days about each and every one of them! 

Happy reading!!!!! 

Ok, the “boyband” is cute and all but this bastard was my favourite character from FFXV at first sight. 8))))) First time I saw him in official teasers around 2013, my first thought was “omg I hope this guy will be important!!”

Well, he did not disappoint. He’s absolute TRASH. Sick and twisted, also flamboyant and charismatic af. Just the way I like it. <3
I take some kind of perverse pleasure in watching characters like him fuck shit up. I love him and I hate him and I love to hate him and he has become one of my favourite FF villains, whoops.

Also, Darin De Paul could read a goddamn telephone book aloud and it would be entertaining. :|

where’s the coraline au

so at first i wanted to make it a Zimbits Coraline AU and I knew exactly how I wanted to do that! It would work out! Heck yeck!

And then I realized how much better a Nurseydex Coraline AU would work

And now I have all these ideas. Which are. Under a cut because it got waayyyy longer than expected. (Probably still gonna flesh out that Zimbits version though) (also if there’s a coraline au point me in the direction because Coraline is one of my two absolute favourite movies and I would give my soul for it) (Pacific Rim is the other one and I have the craving for that satisfied. For now.)

Magical cut go!!!

Ten Magickal Metals and Their Uses in Witchcraft

Hey everyone, it’s been a while. I’m in a better place now, and though my mini-sabbatical was necessary, I hated not updating you all! I can’t wait any longer, so I’m back! 

Most people know that certain crystals or stones have associations in Witchcraft, but people seem to forget that this is a relatively new area of Craft. Prior to that, for thousands and thousands of years, Witches and smiths used metals to work their magick and skill, and this shouldn’t be forgotten today! 

Alloys have different associations to pure metals, so I’ll do them separately.


Pure Metals:

  • Iron - Probably the most common metal in Witchcraft, it’s associated with repelling of spirits, demons, Fae, and magick generally. It’s a dousing metal, one that channels magick exceptionally well, and as such will “pull” magick out of the user. Enchantments don’t stick to iron objects, and any spells placed on them will fade almost immediately or simply not stick in the first place. 

  • Copper - An ancient and useful technology, copper is said to be the second metal ever worked by human hands, and the first to be made into tools. It’s primary associations are with craft and manufacture, especially workings done with one’s own hands or skill. Amulets made from copper are said to enhance skill at creative or inventive endeavours, and altar tools made from copper will work very well for constructive magick or rituals. It’s also strongly associated with harmony and balancing, making it an excellent metal to include in altars focused around balance.

  • Steel - Whilst technically an alloy, it’s an alloy of iron and a non-metal (carbon) so I’m going to put it in this section. Steel is strongly associated with weapons and armour, and for this reason it works well for defensive magick, destructive magick, and for athames. It retains iron’s strong resistance to magickal enchantment, which for an athame is a good thing - you don’t want the magick “sticking” to your tools, so something like iron or steel is kind of like using a non-stick pan to cook your eggs.

  • Tin - The working of iron is called “blacksmithing”, and conversely the working of tin is called “whitesmithing”, because whilst iron oxidises black under heat, tin remains quite pale. In the ancient world, this metal was highly sought-after, as it is the crucial ingredient in the manufacture of bronze, an alloy of tin, copper, and occasionally some other metals. As a result, it was highly priced and much haggled-over, and so it’s primary associations are with money, trading, prosperity and success. It’s also very strongly associated with British Witchcraft, because Britain had so much tin that the Romans and Greeks called Britain “the Tin Isles”. 

  • Gold - The first metal worked by humans, the purity, rarity and unparalleled lustre of gold have made it one of the most sought-after metals of all time. Regarded as one of the “noble metals” by alchemists, and one of the precious metals by almost everyone else, gold is of course strongly associated with money, fortune and trading. However, it’s also associated with intelligence, because of the alchemical pursuits followed to try to transmute things into it; and with purity, because it is biologically so inert that Victorian doctors used to coat pills for rich people in 24k gold leaf to mask the taste without harming the patients. It’s an excellent channelling substance, though I doubt anyone will have enough of it for a whole wand! Perhaps just a tip, then!

  • Silver - Although less prized than gold, this highly lustrous and workable material is also regarded as a precious metal. Due to its unique atomic structure, silver is the most conductive element in the universe - this makes it an unparalleled channelling metal, and it’s much lower cost than gold makes this a theoretically possible metal to make wands for energy-workers and for ceremonial wands for covens. It’s also a very pure metal, and is strongly associated with healing, growth, and cleansing of disease and impurity from the body. Amulets suspended on a silver chain will be imbued with healing energies, strengthening any enchantments upon them, and assisting in the boosting of the wearer’s natural immune system. 

  • Lead - Contrary to popular belief, lead is not toxic to hold in your hands any more than nickel, antimony, or other metals that are often toxic by ingestion. Whilst it’s not advised to wear it as an amulet (because prolonged rubbing against the acidic oils in the skin will cause them to react with the metal over time and be absorbed into your body), holding a charm in your hands or wearing one for only a day or so is not dangerous to your health. This metal is associated strongly with travel, adventure, and safe voyages across both space and emotion. It’s also a metal associated with intelligence and academia, and with magick of all kinds. Pendulums made using lead weights or pendants will be unparalleled for divination. In fact, my own original divinatory pendant is made using a lead fishing weight and an old key, and whilst I now have a fancy new one made with rose quartz and pure silver, my old lead pendulum is still my absolute favourite! 


Alloys:

  • Bronze - An alloy made from the combining of approximately 85% copper and 15% tin. This alloy has many superior qualities compared to both individual metals, and this has made it a first choice metal for a great many people from artists to cooks to metallurgists throughout the ages. Stronger than both tin and copper, and with a higher melting temperature and toughness rating than either, this metal is associated strongly with grand endeavours, imaginative or ambitious projects, and with collaborative enterprises. Bronze would be an excellent component of any spell intended to enhance your performance at your job, in seeking employment, or in advancing your own social or career goals. 

  • Pewter - This alloy has become rarer in these more modern times, but in the Medieval and Renaissance periods pewter was one of the most commonly used metals available. It’s main component is tin, and whilst most pewter is about 92% tin you can get pewter with as little as 80% tin and as much as 99%! The remaining ~8% is usually copper, antimony, and in old alloys lead is often a component (lead is almost always absent in modern pewter for safety reasons). This alloy is the metal that’s most strongly connected to kitchen witchery, followed by cast iron and copper, because it has been used for over a thousand years to make everything from cutlery to plates to flagons. It’s also associated with “common” magick, the magick of everyday people (as opposed to what were traditionally called the “higher” magicks like alchemy and energy-working). So long as your pewter is free of lead, it’s safe to keep it near your skin, or to eat or drink from it. Potions are more powerful when brewed in cauldrons made of pewter, and your kitchen spells will work more effectively when you use pewter in the working somewhere.

  • Electrum - One of my favourite metals of all time, electrum is a naturally-occurring alloy of gold and silver, often with trace quantities of copper, platinum and palladium in the alloy too. Natural electrum comes in two common varieties; 10-30% silver, which is found mostly in the regions of Western Anatolia; and 50%-60% silver, which is found in the regions around Ancient Lydia (a large empire stretching across much of Asia Minor). However, most modern electrum is alloyed artificially, allowing finer control over the quality of the alloy and making it easier to work with artistically. Electrum is very much a metal associated with commerce - many regions such as the Lydian empire used electrum as a basis for their coins, as opposed to pure gold or pure silver, and it has always been a highly valued commodity. It’s also a very strongly artistic metal, as electrum has been used to make everything from the capstone of the Great Pyramid of Giza (sadly, this has long since been stolen by looters over the centuries), to wedding bands for pagan marriages. Electrum is a metal of love and emotion, and in its alloying of two precious and beautiful metals to make a product greater than the sum of its parts, it represents the joining of two lives together into a single whole to produce a love that will last across all time. Personally, I’d like my wedding band to be made of electrum!

——

Metals are a much overlooked, but incredibly useful addition to any Witch’s arsenal of magick tools, and I hope most sincerely that this has been useful for all of you wonderful Witches out there looking to expand your collection of Witchery supplies beyond common items like crystals and tarot cards. Remember that Witchcraft isn’t about doing what everyone else does, but rather it’s about doing what only you’ve ever done! As always everyone, Witchcraft is not a thing you do, it’s a thing you ARE - Witchcraft is in the mind, and so be sure to practice your Craft exactly how YOU know it should be practiced.

Blessed be~!
