the last best hope for a cast

STAR WARS is really good for time travel fic, the urge to give the characters a chance to fix things, now that they have an idea of what went wrong or what to look out for, while still having to relive so many painful things, that balance of suffering and yet it’s worth it for the hope it offers, it’s exactly what the best fic is made of. I LOVE TIME TRAVEL FIC SO MUCH, so I’ve collected together a bunch of my favorites!

   Han Solo, after being killed by his own son, wakes up as an eight-year-old on Corellia, then runs away from home. just his luck (or the Force) that his ride crashes on a world being squabbled over by the Republic and the Separatists. just his luck (or the Force) that he runs into Anakin Skywalker and Obi-wan Kenobi, too.

Old Man Luke by scarletjedi, obi-wan & anakin & luke & cast, 10.4k wip
   Obi-Wan narrowed his eyes. “Who are you?” He asked, hoping a direct question would yield answers. The old man seemed adept at side-stepping information when asked a bit more deftly. “I’ve never heard of a Master with your level of talent.”

   Obi-Wan has always had a secret. And Qui-Gon could not, must not, ever know. If he did, then they would never even make it to Tatooine, let alone deal with the rest to come. One perfect possible future, that’s all Obi-Wan needed to achieve…that’s all.

2nd redraw is finished!

Personal Thoughts: One of the best Starco moments. EVER. I mean, think about it. Star really didn’t want to leave Marco, so she cast one last spell and something beautiful came out of it. The fact that she wanted to stay with him SO badly, that she was probably thinking “I have to give everything I’ve got. I can’t lose Marco… I won’t let this happen… I’ll do whatever it takes to stay here with him.” just makes me bubbly on the inside and gives me hope that they WILL BE CANON.

SnK Chapter 93 Poll Results

The chapter 93 poll closed with 1,143 entries. Can I start with a wow? With so many responses, this is going to be a long one.

RATE THE CHAPTER
(1024 responses)

The Marley Files continue to grow on us. 77% of respondents rated Chapter 93 very highly.

Best chapter I’ve ever reviewed in a while. I hope next month will deliver heavy stuff.

My Jaeger reunion hype was amplified by 3000 eggplants after this chapter

Loved the diversity in the new characters. Riener is so torn mentally & emotionally. I believe few more pages on the warrior are still needed before getting back to Paradise. I sense a glimpse of hope in escaping a doomed end. somebody will live & achieve freedom. who? hard to tell.

Everybody has different opinions about the plot, but I do not think anyone can argue about the art. Love this manga. Want to see Levi again!

I never imagined I could love these characters even more. Now I do. Bravo Isayama-sensei, I never felt so hyped for this chapter for the longest time!

Stop trying to make these new kids happen, Isayama. It’s not going to happen.

My interest in the manga is reaching an all time low with this focus on Marley. And it looks like we’ll still be there next month. I’m so done.

I haven’t minded these recent chapters, but I haven’t felt like I enjoyed them since its a virtually unknown cast. I did however enjoy chapter 93!

Whatever else you might want to say about STAR WARS fandom, I have SO MUCH AFFECTION for it, there are so many people writing really good stories and drawing really beautiful art and coming up with really great scenarios and especially in PT fandom there’s a group of people that I never have to apologize for being a fan of the prequels. I don’t have to feel like I’m expected to preface everything with qualifiers, instead I can just whole-heartedly embrace what I love and that it’s good for me, that I honestly enjoy it genuinely, that this part of fandom absolutely embraces the good and loves these characters and this world/galaxy with me.

Every time I sink into a really good fic, when I come out of it, I remember, yes, I am so glad to be here, I’m so glad there are others who are filled with just as much genuine love for these characters as I am. So here’s another list of fics that give me that happy, fizzy feeling of being in a fandom I love. (Fic recs every Wednesday.)

STAR WARS FIC RECS:

Echoes of Mortis by wreckageofstars, obi-wan & anakin/padme & ahsoka, 67.3k
   Post-Mortis Arc AU. In a universe where the Father failed to take away Anakin’s vision of the future, the Hero With No Fear struggles with the knowledge of what he will become and the knowledge of who, exactly, is responsible. Drastic steps are taken and in the process things go a little bit…sideways.
Conspiracy Theorist Obi-Wan Kenobi by tcf-dendral, obi-wan & cast, 1.1k
   His hindsight, Obi-Wan thinks, was not twenty-twenty in this instance, and he wishes he had thought ahead to the possible consequences of what seemed like an inconsequential action at the time. Mostly, he would do better in the future to remember how information, true or not, tends to spread like wildfire across the HoloNet.

Death’s Shade by Susan Zell, obi-wan & anakin & cast, 30.9k
   A devious plot by the enemy is initiated that could wipe out the Jedi without firing a weapon, leaving Obi-wan Kenobi fighting for his last breath as Anakin races to save him.

You were unsure of the time you were woken from your sleep, but you knew it was early. Even with your curtains drawn, you were acutely aware of how dark it was outside. Shaking off your sleep and trying not to trip over your own feet as you shuffled across your floor, you arrived at the door. Simultaneously tugging your hair into a ponytail and peeking to see who was at the door, you were surprised to see no one standing in the hallway of your building. Perplexed, you opened the door to check again. Peering out into the hallway, you shivered in the cold air conditioning the building ran and almost missed the envelope with your name written on it. You bent down to pick it up and stepped backwards back into your apartment, closing the door behind you with your foot. Leaning your back against the door, you tore the envelope open. You never were one for patience.

“I need Lin, Renee, Pippa, and Anthony to Room 103 in 5 minutes!” I shout into the break room. It’s time to dance, which is what I do best. Quickly, I hurry back into the room to get the mics ready. The interns scuttle around, clearing out the area. They take their places at the speakers, with one at the controls. As I finish connecting the last mic, all of the cast members walk in. 

“What are we working on?” Renee asks as everyone lines up. I push my hair back as I take my place in front of them. 

“Take a Break,” I reply, “everyone ready?” They all nod, waiting for my command. I take a deep breath, and nod at the man by the stereo. He starts the track, and we begin the routine. I watch them all go through it, paying attention to the movements. I look from Ant, to Pippa, to Lin, then Renee, them back to Lin. I have a hard time keeping my eyes off him, but I manage. It’s simple enough that one run through is enough. They’ve been through this number over a hundred times probably, so this is just a quick run through. As the music stops, I applaud them. 

“Great job everyone!” I say, smiling. They thank me, and turn in their mics to an intern. This was my last number of the day, so I go to pack up my bag. As I put some papers away, I feel someone standing behind me. I turn around to see Lin, who is awkwardly messing with his hands, talking to Anthony. I can’t help but wonder what they’re talking about, as Ant is starting to move his hands. Then, he points at me, and I can feel my face reddening. Quickly, I bend down and finish packing my stuff. As I sling the bag over my shoulder, I hear Ant behind me. 

“Y/N, hold on!” He yells. He runs in front of me as I’m walking out of the room, and I nearly crash into him. 

 "Jesus, Ant,“ I mumble, not realizing he’ll hear me. He laughs, and I look up at him. 

"Did you need something, or are you just being Anthony?” I joke, and he laughs again. 

 "Uh, my cousin over there,“ he points back to Lin, "with his tongue hanging out, has been meaning to ask you..” he waits for me to pick up. I can’t help but laugh, but inside I’m screaming. 

“Yes?” I continue. 

“…what a lady, such as yourself, might be doing tonight?” After he says that, I can see Pippa down the hall giggling, and Renee hushes her. Jaz peeks out from behind the wall. When I look over my shoulder, I see Lin staring at us, with his hands in his pockets. The look on his face says he’s nervous, and my heart flips at the sight. I turn back to Anthony, and motion with my hand to start walking. I carefully step backwards. 

“Does your cousin… dance?” I ask, loud enough for Lin to hear. Ant grins as he follows me into the studio. 

“Like a drunk Chita Rivera,” Ant says. Lin laughs, and I turn to him. 

“Okay,” I say, shaking my head a little for emphasis. “After I get ready, we could go out for dinner, then check out the fireworks.” Lin’s face breaks into a huge smile. He nods vigorously, and I laugh. Suddenly, Pippa is at my side, dragging me off. I can hear her talking about the dinner, but I can barely focus over my racing mind. It finally hit me that I’m actually going to go out with Lin. I’m so lost in thought that I don’t realize where I’m going, until Pippa pulls me into a room where Renee and Jaz are waiting. 

 "We want to help you with your outfit for tonight!“ Jasmine says excitedly. 

"If that’s okay with you,” Renee interjects. 

“Considering I have nothing to wear except my sweaty dance clothes, I’ll take any help I can get,” I respond, and we all laugh. I sit down in a chair in front of a mirror, and the girls start working. Renee messes with my hair, while Jaz is trying out makeup. I can hear Pippa talking to herself as she tries to find an outfit for me. We all talk about the show and about the choreography. They compliment me a lot, but I know that this would be nowhere without them. 

After roughly an hour, I’m ready to go. The outfit Pippa found for me is an off the shoulder dress with a floral design, and some flats to go with it. I’m wearing the same moon necklace Pippa gave to me a few months ago, and my rings that I bought a year ago. The makeup is simple enough that it doesn’t look overdone, and my hair is in loose curls. I can’t help but smile when I see myself. 

“Guys, this is absolutely amazing,” I gush, “thank you so much!" 

"Of course!” Jasmine says. I grab my purse as I head for the door. Then, I stop, and turn around. The girls look at me worriedly. 

“Is everything okay?” Renee asks. I can see the confused looks on their faces. 

“Yeah, I just..” I start to talk, but stop. I don’t know how to talk about this feeling in my stomach. I’ve never been so nervous in my life, even when I applied to be a choreographer for the show. Looking down, I notice my hands are shaking some. I don’t know how to hide it. 

“Hey, it’ll be okay,” I hear Pippa say. I look up to see her nodding along with the others. They all look at each other, then sing a line from one of my favorite musicals. 

“Just breathe!" 

I giggle a little, then turn back to the door. Taking a deep breath, I step out into the hall. As I walk to the door where I’m supposed to meet Lin, I run into Anthony. He grins when he sees me. 

"Lin is gonna lose his mind when he sees you,” he says, chuckling a little. I laugh some too, and keep walking. I stop at the door, take a deep breath, then step outside. Lin is out there, facing the street. When he hears the door, he turns, and his mouth drops open. I can’t help but blush, and he walks toward me. 

“Oh my god,” he says, gesturing at me with his hands. “You look absolutely astounding.” He smiles widely, and my face just gets redder. 

“Thank you,” I say, fiddling with my hands. Suddenly, he takes one of them in his. I look up, and see panic cross his face. 

“Oh my god I’m so sorry,” he starts rambling, “I thought, since you said yes, I mean, I know I didn’t ask you out, but I mean, since we were going on a date, I thought-" 

Wait,“ I cut him off, then take a dramatic breath. ”This is a date?“ The sarcasm drips off my voice, and Lin starts to laugh. I join him, and suddenly, all of my nerves have disappeared. As we head to the car, he stops again. 

"Oh, I got this for you a couple weeks ago, but I kept forgetting to give it to you,” he says. “Guess now is a good time, huh?” I nod, and he pulls something out of his pocket and places it in my hand. It’s a simple bracelet, a thin golden cord with a small stone in the center. It shines in the sun as he helps me clip it on my wrist. 

“Do you like it?” He asks. I nod, and throw my arms around him. I look up at him, aware of how close he is. His eyes stare into mine, and before I can think about it, I close the small space between us. The moment my lips touch his, I feel butterflies explode through my stomach. His hands fall to my waist as I move mine around his neck. Everything seems to stand still, and it’s just us in this moment. We finally break apart, and a small smile has appeared Lin’s face. I return it, and we walk to the car. He opens the door for me, and we head to dinner. 

Little did I know, this would be the first of many dinners, and time-stopping kisses.

Prankster

Simon pranks Baz the Normal way, using flour, and hair dye, and a fake love letter and yeaaaah you know how it’s going to end.

Simon’s POV.

I’m standing in the middle of the Magickal History classroom, still in fighting stance, heart still beating too fast. I can feel the last hint of my magic around me, the air in the room still crackling with energy before slowly dying away. Everything smells like smoke. I look around me and survey the devastation I’ve caused.

The desks and chairs are blackened to cinders, scattered at the sides of the room, pushed back by the force of my explosion. The students are cowering on the ground, and just now, as the heady smell of magic recedes, they start stumbling to their feet, brushing black dust off their clothes. The only one still standing, who has remained standing throughout the entire debacle, is Baz. He hasn’t moved even half an inch from where he was standing before I went off, right next to me at the centre of it all. His arms are folded and his chin is lifted haughtily. He looks at the chaos surrounding us with obvious contempt.

mxrobotnik  asked:

I'm hoping when it comes to the final show down with Dr Eggman in Forces that the custom character doesn't play as big a role as Sonic does as that is really going to rub me the wrong way, the last thing the Doc needs is some nobody coming out of nowhere and managing to defeat him. And please don't let them have a super form.

This.

And I’m also hoping that “Buddy” isn’t going to best the rest of the cast by coming to the Sonic’s rescue or something whilst leaving them as glorified cheerleaders on the sidelines.

There’s so many ways in which this concept can be done including narrative-wise that’d rub me the wrong way…

How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days AU - Part 1 (Bucky x Reader)

Synopsis: This is a fluffy AU based on the movie How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. (If you want to you can check out the trailer here.) This is part of @stories-from-stark-tower Stark Tower’s 3k Celebration Movie AU Challenge! You work at Radiance magazine and have been assigned the task to find a man to date and ‘lose him’ within the span of 10 days making the typical mistakes women tend to make, writing it up for your article. Easy right? Bucky Barnes is your ever so charming victim and it turns out he has his own 10 day task and may prove to be more of a challenge than you thought. 

Pairing: Bucky x Reader

Words: 2792 

Warnings: None. (Maybe mild cursing?)

A/N: Okay, so this is my first Bucky Barnes fic so I apologise is advance if its bad. I just love this movie so so so much and I feel like Bucky suits the character of Ben so well! This was so much fun to write and i can’t wait to write the next parts although I’m so nervous it won’t turn out very good.

anonymous asked:

what about rfa + unknown finding out that this is actually a game?

You should’ve seen my face when I read this one I was so excited to write this.

Saeran’s is my favourite. I don’t know how it became that but I like it?

(P.S. My internet’s been out since Tuesday and will not be back until Saturday T_T I’ll write the ones I have and I’ll try to post from public/friend’s wi-fi but I might not be back until Saturday I’m so sorry T_T)

Zen:

  • Zen doesn’t want to believe it.
  • He’s… in a game? He’s not real?
  • He wishes he could say it’s impossible but
  • Anything is possible, right?
  • He doesn’t like thinking that he isn’t real, that his friends aren’t real, that your love isn’t real
  • In the end he decides it doesn’t matter
  • He feels happy
  • That’s what matters.
  • Anyways, being a game character is just like acting right?
  • And if he really is a game character…
  • Well, he’s honoured that you, the player, chose his route and that you seem to like him.
  • As long as he can make others smile he’s happy.
  • So he’ll happily play his part and recite his lines until the grand finale.
  • And when your eleven days are up, he watches you disappear…
  • And he can feel his memories being reset…
  • His last words are “Thank you for everything. You’ll always be my prince(ss).”
  • He’s just happy you can’t see him crying.

Yoosung:

  • He takes it the best but also the worst?
  • Because it… makes sense?
  • That’s why he has no motivation for the future, isn’t it?
  • Because there is no future after the party. Some part of him must have known that.
  • It makes so much sense he almost feels bad that he didn’t figure it out sooner.
  • That must be why he likes games, he says with an empty laugh.
  • Because he is one.
  • Or, well, because he was programmed to like them.
  • He completely stops eating and taking care of himself.
  • What’s the point? He doubts this game is programmed to let him die.
  • And if it is, so what? It’s not like he really existed anyways.
  • He doesn’t play along anymore.
  • And the game can’t continue.
  • So on Day 5 the Bad Ending comes along to reset the game, and his memories. 

Jaehee:

  • Jaehee is used to working out problems logically.
  • How do you logically work out something so impossible?
  • She would probably try to deny it at first.
  • Just brush it off and keep working.
  • But she can’t ignore the truth.
  • It certainly explains why she’s always felt like the supporting cast in her own life. Because she is.
  • She was never meant to be the main character, with hopes and dreams and adventure.
  • She’s just background extra #3.
  • She just kind of… resigns herself to it.
  • She’s a background character.
  • So she’ll continue to do her work assignments and play her part quietly in the background, supporting the main characters as she watches the story unfold.

Jumin:

  • “I’m… a game?”
  • He doesn’t react much externally. But internally, his mind is racing.
  • He has twenty six years of memories. Surely no game would be that thorough.
  • Was losing Rika just a game then?
  • If it’s a game, shouldn’t Luciel be able to hack it?
  • How long has it been a game? Has he always been a game?
  • Games have objectives, right? This game’s objective must be the party. That’s why you were brought here.
  • So they should keep working towards that objective.
  • But what happens when they reach it?
  • Where do a game’s characters go when the game is won? He’ll have to ask Yoosung.
  • Either way, it’s pretty clear that if there’s an objective, that’s what they should be heading towards.
  • Things change when he starts to realize his feelings for you though.
  • Is this part of the game?
  • The party is no longer his objective. You’re his objective.
  • He’s torn. The goal is clearly to reach the party.
  • But if he lets you go home and the game proceeds as normal… what happens to him? What happens to you?
  • He can’t risk finding out. He can’t risk losing you.
  • So he decides to suspend the game. If he never lets you leave, then the game can never be over, right?
  • It’s what’s best for both of you, to remain together.
  • He doesn’t anticipate the screen going black as the Bad End message takes over
  • And he doesn’t anticipate the game resetting.
  • He’ll do better next time

Seven:

  • He knows.
  • He’s known from the beginning.
  • The beginning of what? His life? The game? When the first line of his code was typed?
  • He doesn’t know why he knows.
  • Was he programmed to know? Is it part of his character?
  • Or is it punishment for all the things he’s done?
  • Because he doesn’t care if it is just his programmed backstory, he remembers leaving his brother. He remembers joining the agency. He remembers the last ten years he spent doing their dirty work.
  • Being aware must be his punishment for making all those choices.
  • And doesn’t the fact that he’s aware mean they were, in fact, his choices?
  • He knows that the things he’s saying in the messenger are preprogrammed
  • He could say other things
  • He knows he could
  • But he doesn’t
  • (Usually.
  • Sometimes something slips. When that happens he just adds it into the program. Who’s going to care if a phone call or two sound a bit out of place? If he sounds like he’s breaking down, or if he mentions his feelings when it’s not his route, it won’t change the outcome.)
  • Because he also knows the game’s true ending
  • So he doesn’t care that it’s just a game.
  • He doesn’t even care if he has to suffer through watching the love of his life fall in love again and again with his closest friends.
  • He doesn’t care that he has to suffer through everyone’s, including his, Bad Endings.
  • He doesn’t focus too hard on whether or not it’s real.
  • Because it’s real to him.
  • And he’ll play along with every sad torturous script if it means he gets his true ending.

V:

  • It’s… not real?
  • All the pain he’s gone through, all the pain he’s caused… none of it is real?
  • That doesn’t excuse it, he knows
  • But games have happy endings don’t they?
  • He hopes Rika will get her happy ending.
  • He hopes that all the RFA will.
  • As for him… he’s the enemy in this game, isn’t he?
  • All of the bad things they have to overcome are because of him.
  • He’s the final boss
  • He has to be defeated before the happy ending can come to pass.
  • (He hasn’t played many games himself but he does listen when Yoosung talks about them. He knows how they go.)
  • So when the bullet tears through his chest, he feels nothing but love and hope. Hope that with him gone, everyone’s happy endings can begin.

Saeran:

  • To say he doesn’t take it well would be an understatement
  • This is a game?
  • His life has been a fucking game??
  • What the fuck???
  • Eleven years of constant torture
  • Followed by ten years of betrayal, abandonment, and suffering…
  • Which part of that was a fucking game?
  • Because he sure as fuck wasn’t having fun.
  • Are you?
  • Is this fun for you??
  • Do you think it’s fun to watch him suffer???
  • To see all the things he’s been through from behind your screen????
  • He’s not a game. This isn’t a game.
  • It’s
  • not
  • a
  • GAME!
  • Shut up.
  • Shut up shut up SHUT UP!!!
  • Code runs across the screen as his character model starts to glitch
    He flickers between his default graphic and the Secret Ending CG with the gun
  • Until it morphs into a whole new CG
  • Saeran, blue eyes wide and an unhinged, smile on his face as he points a gun directly at the screen
  • His distorted voice rings through your speaker
  • “Here’s your fucking game!”
  • BANG!
  • You drop the phone, your heart racing as the familiar words stare up at you from the ground
  • Bad Ending.

Vanderwood:

  • Their life
  • Is a game.
  • Of course it is.
  • Of fucking course it is.
  • Because that’s just the kind of weird shit they’ve gotten used to over the last… well, their whole life.
  • Okay. So it’s a game. Now what?
  • Do they play along?
  • What happens to them if they do? What happens to them if they don’t?
  • They already know they’re going to play along, what choice do they have?
  • You’re the one with the choices, not them.
  • So they just let themselves be dragged along for the ride
  • And hope for the best.
  • They’re not jealous Zero Seven has a route and they don’t not much anyways
  • They don’t want the drama focused on them anyways tbh they’re cool with being the supporting cast
MY FIC RECS

So no one on here actually knows who I am! I’m not a writer, however, I’m a constant reader and I loved this idea so I wanted to make a rec list as well! There are so many amazing authors out there that I adore and I discovered tumblr just because of all these amazing stories I’ve read. Whether it’s the stories or drabbles or even just the asks, these authors put the time and effort out there that I’m forever grateful for. Here is my rec list:

The Nice Guy by @onismanxiety: this story is just so amazing. I’m a sucker for angst and I love stories where Harry and the OFC are famous. It seems so realistic to me and if you haven’t checked this out, you definitely should!

Down & Out by @inkoasis: because who doesn’t love football Harry? I may not be a Packers fan but this story definitely makes you want to be Packers fan. The family and friend dynamic of this story is awesome and Nikki is such an amazing writer!

Slow Burn @allywrites: firefighter Harry?! I don’t think I can think of a better AU than this. Maybe because I’m a huge fan of Chicago Fire and that show made love firefighters. So imagine Harry Styles as a firefighter. You’re welcome :)

Valley of the Dolls by @onismanxiety: because JoJo is the absolute shit and she managed to do it again with another amazing OU. Seriously, Digger and Harry are the ultimate goal relationship and I love them.

Fanfiction by @stilesharrystyles: Lucy is the cutest OFC I have ever encountered and this story is so beyond anything I have ever read. Eliza is so talented and I’ve read all of her fics but this is by far the most unique!

Nom de Plume by @stylesprimes: this is one of the first stories I started in this community and will always be one of my favorites! I adore Leigh and Harry so much and I can’t wait to see what else she has planned for this couple!

Evaporate by @standingfacingwest: I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS FIC. Harry and Matilda are just amazing and this fic is so realistic in terms of a famous relationship. I love how the author portrays a not-so-perfect Harry because let’s face it, nobody is perfect!

The Golden Hour @standingfacingwest: she strikes again! I’m also a sucker for UNI AU fics and this is just amazing! It’s so realistic and reminds me of when I was back in college.

Breathe by @wildestdreamsfics: this is the ultimate UNI AU. Literally, everything about this fic is perfection. The ensemble cast and the relationship between Harry and Blair is just everything and amazing! It’s so realistic and again, reminds me of my time back in college. Aside from the relationship aspect of this fic, I’m obsessed with the friendship aspect of this fic!

Butterfly Boy by @looselucy: I love this fic! The author has done such an incredible job of portraying a hate to love relationship and if you haven’t checked this out, you should.

Salute by @bioluminescentwriting: I actually just re-read this two weeks ago. It’s one of those fics that I constantly need to re-read because I never get sick of it and I adore Piper so much. I adore Harry even more. Plus there are a ton of amazing drabbles written by this fantastic author that I constantly re-read as well!

Sugar on the Asphalt/Tennessee Teacakes by @justanchorandhope: because who doesn’t love Graceland Ainsworth?! These two are classics in my opinion and I love these fics so much! I probably re-read them every few months because i can’t get enough of the storyline and I’m basically obsessed with Harry and Grace’s relationship (Ren and Niall too!)

Silver Springs by @lifesbetterasamermaid: again, I’m a sucker for angst and Sav is just so good at it! I love the endless torture of Harry and Willow’s relationship and I can’t wait to see what she does with this!

Journeyman by @littlebird006: Boxer Harry! I mean, how can you not love that! And I love the way he acts towards Beth and treats her! I read the originals of this (Red Dawn and When the Sky Turns Grey) and I loved those just as much! I can’t wait to see where she takes this story!

Stuck On You by @northernsunrises: this is so unbelievably realistic because we live in the time of snapshot, Facebook, and Instagram and this fic portrays it so well! It’s so interesting to watch the development between Harry and Jamie and I can’t wait to see what happens!

Above Average and First Base by @stilesharrystyles: both of these stories are just fantastic. AA is so refreshing because it follows the story of your average Tenny and the adorable Harry that likes her. First Base is so good because it’s another fantastic UNI AU that shows the cute relationship between Blake and Harry. This author spoils us with so many drabbles as well!

Just Anchor and Hope/When We Sink We Float by @justanchorandhope: to be honest, I re-read these two within two days this week while bored at work (it’s a super slow time of year) and they are just classics! I love the buildup that the author portrays regarding the relationship between Harry and Eliza as well as the downfall. This is just so raw and amazing and I love it!

All I Want by @americanowrites: because who doesn’t love the bad boy Harry of 2013? Honestly this was such an amazing concept and the OFC is so strong and one of the best characters I’ve ever read!

How You Get The Boy by @booksncoffee: I have to say, I’m not a huge fan of triangles but this one is just amazing. I caught up recently and I adore Harry and Tenley aka Bunny :)

Scatterheart by @ellajames213: I love post breakup AUs and this is the ultimate one! I love the building relationship between Harry and Sloane as exes and the author is so good with portraying that!

Bring it Back by @paynethecreator: I just started this and I love it! I can’t wait to see what happens with Norah and Harry!

Pure Feeling by @aceofstyles: I’m obsessed with CEO Harry and the last chapter broke my heart! I can’t wait to see what happens between Harry and Sasha! They’re one of my fave fanfic couples :)

Turned Around by @mindwcrdsfics: this is so heartbreaking! it’s one of those fics that you can’t stop because you HAVE to see how it ends. I can’t wait to see what happens with Harry and Flora and whether they rebuild their marriage or not!

In Your Atmosphere by @fromherlips: Eva and Harry are the ultimate couple. Honestly, there’s no beating them because the author portrayed them so well and everything about this fic is just amazing.

Leather and Lace by @mackabees: I LOVE ROMEE AND HARRY! I’m rooting for them hardcore! When the author started the one shot about how they met and then started this shortly after, I was so excited! I cannot wait to see what happens and I honestly hope we get a happy ending with this!

With Healing Powers by @harry-styleswho: ummm single dad Harry anyone?! Yes please! Also, worried dad Harry? Who doesn’t love a worried Harry?! I love this story, it’s so adorable!

Rivers and Roads by @harrystyluhs: this fic is so raw and the author portrays a relationship so unbelievably realistic in this story! I cannot wait for her to continue this!

Running Home by @1dable: Harry as a father to be? Sign me up! This is so good and I know it’s currently on a little hiatus and I love this author so I hope she gets her mojo back soon because I can’t wait to see what happens!

Vo'ke by @beggingforfics: this has to be the most unique story I have ever read! The plot line is just out of this world and I love it!

If You Ever Leave Me by @inficwetrust: this is actually one of the best and most unique plots I’ve ever encountered. It’s so original and although I’ve never been a fan of anything involving ghosts, this is so interesting and I can’t wait to see what happens!

With The New Crowd by @likeamisfit: when I saw this update the other day, I stopped what I was doing because I was so excited! This is such a good story and the ensemble cast is the best part of this! I love the mystery of Harry’s character in this as well!

Disconnected by @afitzgeraldfic: the angst! I love this and I’m such a sucker for fics where Harry and the OFC are childhood friends. This is so good and I just caught up with the last chapter the other day!

Breakfast at Saint Laurent by @styleslegends: I have to add this one because I love it and again, I love those post break up. You can only hope Olivia and Harry find their way in this!

Ahh sorry for such the long post but all these authors, along with so many more, deserve all the recognition in the world! They take time out of their daily lives - school, work, friendships, relationships, family - just to be able to share their stories with us. Reading is such a privilege because of the hard work these authors do and I can’t thank them enough! I feel like a stalker because I don’t really put myself out there and everyone is probably thinking “who is this random girl?” LOL But I’m just a reader who enjoys 1D (mainly Harry as you can tell by my fic rec) and follows all these authors on this amazing site and I wanted to give them the props and love that they deserve! Because not only do they take the time to write the stories, but they take the time to write these fantastic drabbles and answer every question we all have. You all are amazing 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

captain-onyourleft  asked:

What are you thoughts on possible season 5 of aos? The cast is having a fancy wrapping party and Chloe announced she will be starring in some new kind of series..I'm kind of getting worried :/

i am by no means an expert on predicting things, but i think that aos will probably be renewed for a fifth season, and that season 5 will be its last. since the new inhumans show is coming out this fall (i think), they will try to do some crossovers with that (hopefully) and that will hype up both shows and give them both better ratings.

also, the new project that chloe is working on i think is a movie, so it really shouldn’t interfere with aos’ filming too much. if they don’t film the movie over the summer or when aos is on a hiatus, they might just make daisy not be in a few episodes in s5 in order for chloe to film the movie.

so again, i think it’s likely that we’re going to get a new season, but we can never be 100% sure until abc renews it

kellyabbotts  asked:

bruce finding lois at clark's grave and she tells bruce the things she misses about clark

Lois wades through the grass towards him. She isn’t surprised that he’s here – Martha mentioned to her, the man that visits and places orchids amongst the bouquets every week – but this is the first time that she’d ever actually see him here. She doesn’t try to be quiet and he doesn’t turn to face her, head angled downwards towards the tombstone.

She stops at his side, and looks too. 

Clark Joseph Kent. Beloved son, partner and friend. He had hope.

She had insisted that be added, and Martha hadn’t argued. Lois reads over it twice, and curls her fingers until she can touch the band of her ring. She hasn’t taken it off since she got it. The touch makes her chest ache.

“He would hate this,” she finally speaks. She doesn’t look, but she can see when Bruce shifts beside her, eyes darting towards her and back again. He’s curious, but he won’t speak. She doesn’t need him to. “The flowers, the people coming to pay respects, the tears. He’d say he doesn’t need to be remembered.”

If I die, I’ll do it protecting my home. I’ll do it for you. He’d touched her cheek, smiled with such soft affection. That’s enough.

She could still feel his touch if she remembered hard enough. Despite all that strength, his hands were never rough, his fingers never bruised – not her anyway. Her cheek tickles, but she cannot bare to rub it away. It’s as if he’s still there.

When Bruce speaks, his voice is rough. “This isn’t for him, it’s for you.”

“And you,” Lois counters, turns and Bruce’s eyes move to hover on her forehead. He won’t meet her gaze, and that makes anger flare in the pit of her stomach. Bitter fury that makes her want to bite and screech and demand recompense because how dare he? After everything, he should. He should look at her, and know what he did to her, to Clark, to Martha. He should feel their pain and left it fester and burn him just like it does her.

But no. She swallows and controls it. She tells herself that he didn’t know, that things were complicated in those months following Zod’s attack, that Lex Luthor played them all for fools and brought them all to their knees.

“It’s quiet here, let’s me think,” he stops and adds, “say things that I never got to say.”

Too late, she thinks. She doesn’t say it.

“He’d listen. He always did.” She says instead, “Even if he disagreed with you, he’d wait until you were done, taking in every point before he systematically destroyed your argument.” She laughs a little at the memory. She hated arguing with Clark. Even when he was wrong, he had a way to convince you that he was right.

She wishes that they’d got to finish that fight about the vacuum cleaner before he went.

“I’m sure he’d be less than receptive with me. Not that I wouldn’t deserve it,” he adds harshly.

Lois spins the ring around her finger, and feels the diamond press into the palm of her hand. “You would, but that’s the thing with Clark. He didn’t care who you were, what you’d done. He’d always think that you could be saved.”

She remembered holding him when he cried, after the incident with Zod. They were still new, uncertain of how to continue and this was the first time she had seen him so vulnerable. General Zod had been a maniac with the blood of millions on his hands, and the destruction of a planet fed into his soul, and yet Clark had cried because he hadn’t been able to save him.

“He was a good man,” Bruce states. His voice breaks over the words, the briefest glimpse of emotional weakness in this billionaire façade.

Lois bobs her head. “He was. The best.”

She doesn’t need to remind him that he would never know that for himself. Bruce knows that already.

When she leaves, she kisses her hand and leaves it over his name. She hopes that wherever Clark is, he can feel that.

“Oh, and by the way,” she says, glancing at Bruce one last time. “Clark’s favourite flowers were sunflowers.”

The next week, the flower stretches up and sags into the tombstone. It casts a yellowed shadow against the marble, and Lois hopes that Clark can feel the sun too.

anonymous asked:

M, I have been watching from the sidelines as you go through this past week's tragedy and you are so incredibly strong. You remind me so much of my mother, in the best way possible. I truly hope that today treated you better, and that there was even just a hint of a smile on your face. I hope that tomorrow's sunshine casts out last week's rain clouds, and that you continue to blossom. All my love. XxX.

Today was good, despite the sadness. We got the closure i think we needed. It was awkward for my daughter because everyone was a stranger to her, but his whole family was so welcoming and his 96 year old grandma was so happy that we came. I missed her a lot. Another plus side of today, i saw a lot of pics of myself at 18-24 when i was still hot lmfaooooo. It was a good day.

A/N: Hope y’all are having a nice day/night, love you all!
