the hiatus will be torture

When someone finds out you love one direction then asks how you’re dealing with “the break up” and you know they aren’t worth the whole tortured explanation and your belief system re: The Hiatus™ but you can’t figure out what to say other than “fuck off, becky”:

I Will Wait

A/N: My first piece of writing for Karamel. My emotions were too strong after 2x08 and now I’m afflicted with the torture of Winter Hiatus. So I caved and decided to make a new blog and write. This is basically a transcription of the kiss and a tiny bit more. The title refers to the Mumford & Sons song :)

Pairing: Kara Zor-El/Mon-El
Word Count: 1279

His eyes are sore, but he slowly makes them open. Immediately his pain eases when his vision provides not one, but two images of Kara—her golden hair backlit by the fluorescent lights of this medical ward, casting a halo around her… Both of hers…? It barely makes sense to him, but she looks like an angel. This must be heaven.

My OTP in few words
  • Merthur: it was fate and destiny to meet but his choice to stay
  • Sterek: sarcasm is his only defence but to survive he needs him
  • Hannigram: love and caring sentiment is far too often mistaken for curiosity
  • JohnLock: amazing how as long they are together everything's fine
  • Destiel: nothing says love like profound bond, eye-love-making and some back stabbing
Thunderstorm (HuntxMC)

Not sure how this happened and why I’ve wasted HOURS of my actually super packed afternoon on this *sigh* :D

Anywho, I guess you all know by now that I haven’t played the last two Chris Winters dates. However, I loved the idea of Hunt showing up at the MC’s wedding and whoomp, this thing happened. I had originally written a very sad ending but I figured you guys would appreciate this one more (we are on a freaking Hunt date hiatus after all). Anywho, hope you enjoy! :)


‘Cause this is torturous electricity

Between both of us and this is

Dangerous 'cause I want you so much

But I hate your guts

Daughter – Landfill


I study my reflection in the mirror. My make-up is on point and my hair has never looked this orderly. Still, there’s this tiny glimmer of sadness in my eyes. Now that everyone has left to give me some room before the ceremony, I finally stop pretending for a minute. Stop pretending that I am 100% sure about this. That I love Chris with all my heart and that there has never been anyone else. Because there has, and no matter how hard I force myself to forget him I never quite manage.

Chris is sunshine. He lights up my world, he is sweet and warm, he takes me to places I’ve never been before.

Thomas Hunt was a thunderstorm. Dark, intimidating, electrifying. Our encounters were always charged with energy, an underlying tension that could find no relief.

Together

Shameless CS fluff because I’m very impatient and the last week of this hiatus has been torture. One shot, set sometime at the beginning of 4B after Rumple and the Queens of Darkness show up and somewhat inspired by the scene at the end of 4x05.

also available on ff.net


It had been six weeks.

Six weeks of no villains, no curses, no catastrophes, no need for Emma to save Storybrooke.

And it all had went to hell this afternoon. Gold, who had somehow found access back across the town line, had shown up at the Town Square with a new trio of women (his Queens of Darkness, or some kind of crap) and promised to wreak havoc on Storybrooke until villains got the happy endings they “rightfully” deserved. He then used his magic to make the group vanish into thin air before any questions could be asked, leaving the town disappointed with the knowledge that their short time of peace was now over and done.

No one was more disappointed- and angry- than Emma was. Although she probably should have known better than to expect any kind of peaceful life as the Sheriff/Savior, she had thoroughly enjoyed the extra time she was able to spend with her family, as well as the many quiet moments she and Killian had shared together. Even though their relationship was still progressing slowly, she couldn’t deny the fact that she had fallen for the pirate- and fallen hard.

Kathryn’s favorites....

I hope you enjoyed last week’s post and found a story (or 2) that helped you survive another TORTUROUS week of hiatus. If you missed it, check out the link below. 

Previous issue:  May 24th 

To ALL CS fanfic authors: I can’t imagine how much work goes into writing fanfic–my lack of imagination is one of the many reasons I don’t attempt it myself–and I know you guys probably hear this all the time, but it can never be said too much: you are wonderful. Your fics are amazing. The time and effort you put into your work is astounding, and the fandom would be NOTHING without you. You keep us going, and for that, we are all so grateful.

To CS fanfic readers: If you happen to read any of the stories below (or in any of the “Kathryn’s favorites” posts) please, please consider reviewing, giving kudos, or liking the fics. The fabulous CS authors work so hard. Let’s show our appreciation.

Happy Reading! 


Breakfast in Bed by captainswanismyendgame

Official description: Killian has a few surprises up his sleeve for Emma’s birthday.

Rated: General Audiences. Genre: none provided  Chapters: one-shot

A sweet Captain Swan story, but the real highlight is Killian regaling Emma with tales of the previous night’s drunken escapades. Regina and Snow drunkenly apologizing to each other for their past misdeeds? A tipsy Emma proposing to Killian? And her reasoning for doing so? HILARIOUS. I could read an entire fic dedicated to that party! Make it happen, Jenna! Pretty please?


Once Upon a Tweet by Arandil, onceuponsomechaos

Official description: WiFi in the Enchanted Forest? No problem! There’s a magic app for that! This is what happens when Fairy Tale characters get to keep their cell phones and twitter accounts even after they are transported back to their Enchanted Realms. Begins during the episode Going Home, just before Emma and Henry leave in the bug.

Rated: T  Genre: Humor  Chapters: 4/?  WIP. 

Hands down the FUNNIEST OUAT-based fic I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Zelena’s twitter handle: @NewBigBadS3. Killian continuously not grasping (and getting frustrated by) twitter’s character limits. Neal repeatedly hacking into Killian’s account and posting gems, such as: “I smell like mermaid.” EVERYONE hating on Neal. Pure comedy gold. An entertaining; quick-read–especially great when you need a little pick-me-up. 


a one time thing (and other untruths) by weezlywrites

Official description: “She supposes the reason she tells him is the same reason she kept his phone number after all those weeks.” Pregnancy has a way of throwing a wrench in one’s plans.

Rated: Teen and up. Genre: Modern!AU Chapters: 25/25. Complete.

If you read last week’s post, you know my feelings on many CS Family/Daddy!Killian fics. Frequently, I find them prone to being out-of-character and saccharine.  This story is a notable exception. It’s complicated. It’s messy. It’s 1000% realistic. And it still manages to be profoundly romantic. It’s this all-too-rare combination that makes it so unbelievably good.


Quiet by lenfaz

Official description: My take on the scene from the pictures on the set (Kathryn’s note: the 11/18/14 filming pics)

Rated:  Teen and up. Genre: none provided. Chapters: one-shot

What’s so beautiful about this fic is its simplicity. There are no grand declarations. No dramatic romantic encounters. Yet, that’s what makes this story so important. It’s the lack of action that so clearly underlines the central theme. I love reading anything Lena writes from Killian’s point of view. She consistently demonstrates such wonderful insight into his character. This fic was no exception. A truly gorgeous piece.


Rotten Heart by modernkillianjones

Official description: Princess Emma and Prince Killian are supposed to marry to unite the kingdoms, but neither are very keen on a marriage. They’ve never seen each other before and while Emma has to struggle with his attitude toward her, he has a dark secret he’s keeping.

Rated: Explicit  Genre: AU, Romance/Drama  Chapters: 24/?  WIP.

A cursed prince. An innocent princess sent to a distant land. A mysterious creature roaming the woods outside the castle. This is OUAT told in the vein of a Grimm’s Fairy Tale. And not the sanitized; safe-for-kiddos version. This is more like the original Grimm’s stories where the Evil Queen was actually Snow White’s biological mother and Cinderella’s stepsisters sliced off parts of their feet so they’d fit into the golden slipper. It’s bleak and there’s a persistent sense of foreboding, yet it’s also romantic. There’s light in the darkness. But what I love most about this story is that it’s such an entirely unique tale. I love that Sabs inserted Emma and Killian into this really dark fantasy world. It was different, yet it worked. Maybe, if we’re nice and provide lots of amazing reviews, we can convince her to update soon. Please, Sabs!!


The Weight of this Heart by jadeddiva

Official description: She tries not to think about the look on his face, the suppressed disappointment, the vulnerability in his eyes. Emma Swan, after she returns to the loft and before she lets the darkness take her.

Rated: Teen and up Warning: spoilers for the season four finale. 
Genre: none provided Chapters: one-shot

In this fic, Annie demonstrates such an innate understanding of Emma Swan that reading it feels like delving into the recesses of Emma’s brain. It’s painful to read Emma struggle with her demons, but finally getting the opportunity to witness her inner workings is a gift. This story is so incredibly heartbreaking given how the season finale ends, but it’s that quality that makes it so powerful.


When One Door Closes by navykillian

Official description: Just as Milah slams the apartment door in Killian’s face, he meets the gorgeous, challenging, and rather feisty blonde living next door.

Rated: T (one chapter temporarily increases to a M rating) 
Genre: Modern AU, Romance/Drama  Chapters: 7. Complete.

I can be a tough critic of AU. Sometimes, I find that fanfic authors use AU as a  license to completely obliterate a character’s personality. And what’s the point of writing fanfiction if the characters you’re writing about aren’t even themselves anymore? I’m happy to report that this is not the case here. Haleigh fully honors Emma and Killian’s personalities, despite placing them in a different situation.  She’s particularly adept at weaving canon into the tale, sometimes to hilarious result. Mary-Margaret and David meeting in the Modern World was a particular highlight. The last paragraph of the story was so incredibly well-done, it still brings happy tears to my eyes just thinking about it. 


You Weren’t Sure? by effulgentcolors

Official description: Based on this tumblr prompt- The Snow Queen kills Killian and Emma brings him back with true love kiss and beautiful emotional smut after that? I went lighter on the smut, strong on the feels.

Rated: Mature Genre: Romance Chapters: one-shot

If you’ve ever read my meta, you know I discuss the topic of TLKs frequently. If those three magic words are found in a fic’s description, it’s a guaranteed must-read for me. I’ve read so many of these stories at this point I consider myself an expert on the genre. And this TLK tale is my favorite. It’s romantic, without being overly sentimental. And the characterization is spot-on. But what I find most appealing about the story, is the sheer vulnerability displayed by Emma and Killian. The emotional honesty is breathtaking to witness. And the sex scene? HOT. 

The Olitz balcony scene of WIN already has over 17K views (me adding 1000 by myself) on YouTube in the first 48 hours and some change since it dropped. Now, if (probably when...) this new sensible trend with our heroes doesn’t continue into Season 5 and beyond, all I will say to The Creator and her enablers is this: JESUS DID NOT COME DOWN HERE AND GET NAILED TO THE WOOD FOR OUR SINS FOR Y’ALL TO BE THIS STUPID!
