This year was a magical time for minewt fic. Fic authors explored pre-canon and post-canon realtionships bewteen Newt and Minho, playing on their strengths and fleshing out their weaknesses. Authors brought to life realities where our boys helped each other through the pain that haunted them and aus where our boys were happily or not so happily lovin each other. To show our appreciation to our wonderful fic authors below are the top twenty minewt fics of 2015, as voted by the shipdom!
Two things to note before looking at the fic rec:
italicized titles are my personal favorites
** indicate that you should carefully read the tags before reading the fic
Minho felt no surprise that living in the Glade was getting to him.
Being trapped like lab rats inflicted scars—physical and invisible—on all the boys. But it was a pain that was supposed to unite them. Their shared fears and grief formed a delicately balanced arch of comradeship and cooperation where just one cracked brick could send the entire structure toppling.
Like hell was he gonna be that one.
(In which Minho has a painful, horrible recurring dream, and he, Newt, and the Glade are never the same again.)
there’s a boy - there’s lots of boys, but there’s a boy. he sees him right away, his eyes drawn to him like a moth to a light. it’s kind of embarrassing, really, because he can’t stop staring at the beautiful boy jogging through the glade.
that night, he’s introduced to the keeper of the runners.
Minho is Prince and his kingdom is in money problems, so his father arranges a marriage with a rich boy who will help the family out of debts.
Newt is a young Prince who is forced into marriage with someone he doesn’t know and lives across the world. His kind is only on the world to provide children, norhing more. And everyone keeps reminding him that.
Before they died, Minho’s parents were known for being able to rehabilitate any animal, even half-human ones. Now they’re gone, so Minho’s the one Jorge calls when he breaks up a were-fighting ring. Which puts Minho in charge of one feral Alpha named Newt.
Suddenly, there was a guy beside him. He was of Asian decent, possibly Korean, Newt didn’t know him and Newt thought he was extremely handsome.
“Hello, gorgeous,” the man said, leaning on the bar. Looking at Newt. Newt stared back for a second before blushing and start looking around to see if there was anybody else the bloke could’ve addressed. Instead he sees Tommy and his heart sinks.
Or the one where Minho helps Newt get over his ex.
Desperate for a job, Newt takes up a shady offer from a high school friend. The job is to play the medic for WICKED, an underground boxing ground. Newt doesn’t plan to stay around, but when a certain Korean fighter catches his eyes, his plans all fall to pieces.
Somehow, cupcakes play a major role in the whole mess.
A tiny story where Newt works for as a personal assistant for the owner of a large company in Glade City. The owner is Minho, who is a young billionaire with a long list of past assistants who all took advantage of the position.
Minho wasn’t looking for love or companionship, just a warm enough body to fill the bottomless void of his desire. But Newt, Newt’s only looking for the money. And that’s as perfect as things get in the real world, and apparently that’s all they needed.
This little fanfic is based off a 30-day relationship challenge I found on Pinterest. Basically, it’s thirty different, fluffy stories about Minho and Newt being married and doing married-couple things.
Inkwell Studios released several other films before Ko-Ko’s Reward that I wasn’t able to find online. They are: - No Eyes Today (1/11/1929) - Noise Annoys Ko-Ko (1/25/1929) - Ko-Ko Beats Time (2/8/1929)
“When a beautiful princess escapes from the ink bottle, only to be captured by a villainous knave, Max draws a stove which he has Ko-Ko use as armor, inflates Fitz into a destrier and sends them off in a deed of daring-do.”
