hi!!~~~ i never had read any haikyuu fics. could you please rec some?

hoo buddy you came to the right place. here are some of my all time faves:

Like a River Through a Mountain by skinnedkneedmisfit Iwaizumi thought he was destined to be the Very Best like no one ever was, until family circumstances cuts his quest for pokémon glory short. Years later, he earns his seat as the ground/rock-type Gym Leader in his hometown, but his life doesn’t really begin until he gets an obnoxious neighbor across the lake. or, maybe not the slow burn Pokémon au that we want, but the slow burn Pokémon au that we get.

Rough Draft by shions_heart Kozume Kenma’s a novelist tasked to write a romance into his action-adventure stories in order to attract more readers, something he has no idea how to do. At a loss, he recruits his attractive next-door neighbor Kuroo Tetsurou to assist him in experiencing what a relationship feels like. He should have anticipated the way things grow more complicated. (oneshot, rated T, 16k)

Read between the lines by wayward_stranger “You know, Iwa-chan,” Oikawa whispered, turning around in his seat. Hajime narrowed his eyes at him. Oikawa had a sneaky look on his face, the same look he usually wore whenever he was about to do one of his powerful serves. “I think you’d make a pretty good Romeo,” he said. The Cultural Festival is coming up soon and Hajime’s class decides to perform Romeo and Juliet. However, Hajime’s plans of staying in the background and painting sets are destroyed once he’s chosen to play Romeo. And to make matters worse, that idiot Oikawa who pulled him into that mess has been cast as Juliet. (multichapter, rated T, 62k)

Armed with a prosthetic leg and a whole lotta firepower, he keeps everything a secret so he can continue playing. Of course, secrets never stay that way for long… (multichapter, rated T, 11k)

When You Wish Upon a Star by emerald1963 Hajime has no idea how this situation is even possible, but he’s one hundred percent certain that it’s all Oikawa’s fault. Oikawa blames the aliens. The Iwaoi body swap fic that this fandom needs, if not the one it deserves. (multichapter, rated T, 32k)

you’re looking like you fell in love tonight by anyadisee “So, let me see if I understood this correctly,” Hajime says, slow and careful like he’s still waiting for some kind of punchline. “You want me to help Oikawa Tooru, a guy I barely know, because your boyfriend owes him a favor?” “And you owe me a favor,” Hanamaki adds helpfully. “That doesn’t even make any sense!”“Sure it does.” Hanamaki’s smile widens. “Issei and I are practically the same person by now, anyway, so whatever favor you owe me, you also owe him. And by repaying me, you are repaying him, and in turn he is repaying Oikawa. Think of it as, like, the transitive property of equality. A equals B equals C. A equals C.” “I know what the transitive property of equality is,” Hajime snaps. [in which iwaizumi pretends to be oikawa’s boyfriend.] (oneshot, rated T, 35k)

Rainbow Hanamaki slammed his hands onto the table. Fortunately, only the hotel receptionist gave any notice. “I get that we’re going to be performing at the world-famous Chicago Pride Festival tomorrow, but there’s a HUGE difference between supporting gay and actually being gay, okay? Especially when it’s your BEST FRIEND that you have a crush on, because that’s goddamn terrifying. ”Iwaizumi’s mouth fell open, because in a few sentences, Hanamaki had just summed up everything that had been building up inside Iwaizumi ever since he was little. (oneshot, rated T, 6k)

quiet and sad and happy by norio Sometimes, Bokuto would wait for Akaashi at early morning practice. Bokuto could practice by himself, of course, or jog a lap around the school. But he thought it’d suck for Akaashi to have to practice alone. If he waited long enough, the heavy door would always creak open and a ray of light would always shine into the room. (oneshot, rated G, drabble) (warning major character death)

this really isn’t the best representation of all the haikyuu fanbase has to offer i’m sorry i’m such iwaoi trash and have no self control but yeah ~em

You Again

Once there, you bumped into Draco Malfoy, your former best friend and former boyfriend. But almost eight years have passed, and you’re in for the surprise of a lifetime. (Muggle/Modern AU)

Word Count: About 2,200.

Warning(s): Some swearing.

Tag List: If you want to be tagged in this series, either comment or reblog saying you want to be added to the list. Those who ask me through my ask box will be ignored.

To say you were shocked to be back in London was an understatement.

After graduating from Columbia Law School, you expected to stay where your network was strong and self-built. Still, with cutthroat graduates all looking to partner with the best firms in New York, you knew your only options were to stand out or to get out.

You just never thought the option you’d choose would be the latter.

Pick-Up and Chase by SKayLanphear *My favorite author and story

At which point the phrase “just desserts” becomes a permanent fixture in her everyday plans.

Fourteen Days of Valentine by RicardianScholar Clark-Weasley

ihaveaten  asked:

Wasn't 'Myr' mostly a reference to ants? Mythologically speaking myrmidons used to be ants, and the study of ants is called Myrmecology. The Myr on mirroden are also evocative of ants in a lot of ways.

It was a reference to myrmidons which yes, were once ants, so I guess by the transitive property… : )

Posted for friends

the tumblerer formerly known as coyotesqrl asked me to post this birthday tribute to @kfedup and I am happy to do so. 

There is disagreement amongst talmudic scholars regarding the timing of the Jubilee year. Some take it to be the seventh sabbatical; some take it to be the year following the seventh sabbatical. I tend to be in the former camp, mostly because it seems unlikely my ancestors would have let their fields lie fallow for two years in a row. So depending on which camp’s interpretation you believe, either the 49th or 50th year is the Jubilee.

The 49th year, of course, is that span of days from one’s 48th birthday through their 49th; the 50th, it then follows, is the year that begins by blowing out 49 candles and ends after climbing the decade wall.


I don’t know about you, but I’ve five fingers upon my dexter hand and, thanks to bilateral symmetry, five upon its sinister twin. My number system is base 10 as is yours (unless you are a replicant; are you a replicant?). “Seven sevens” might have been significant to a desert-dwelling people with a jones for numerology, particularly a people beset by foes on all sides, a desert-dwelling people who would take to the sword to defend their home; however, I think in tens.

Five tens is a midpoint, a mean, a middle. It is a peak and a center and a summit climbed. Five tens is significant.

Five tens is also full of uncertainty and risk and choices. It is even odds, fitty-fitty, a coin toss. Five tens is that moment the house doesn’t have you over a barrel, but you might yet lose.


Maybe the rabbis who say the Jubilee is the seventh sabbatical are right; maybe the rabbis who say it is the subsequent year are right. But I say fifty is something more, something above and beyond. I say fifty is a universal reset, a cosmic coin flip.


Fifty is cool. It’s the new forty which, Madison Avenue assures me, is the new thirty. So fifty is the new thirty by the transitive property. Fifty is also FIFTY, which thirty is most definitively not.

I remember thirty: flirty and foolish and flippant and full of frippery. Fifty is thrifty and thoughtful and thick with meaning and wisdom.


It’s a good age. It’s a good year. It’s a good time to be hale and hearty and wise and alive.

Enjoy your Jubilee my dearest. Let your fields lie fallow (or, frankly, till them till it hurts). Free your slaves. Blow your horn. Let your freak flag fly. Live your life boisterously and recklessly and crazily and kindly and well. Flip a lot of coins and let the cosmos guide you; the house doesn’t have an advantage over you any longer.

anonymous asked:

I hope I am not a bother, but I think one of the best things about Snarry is Severus' intense capability for love and seeing his undying loyalty in action with someone who is living. I was wondering if you knew of any fics like that, like where the full force of Severus' love is focused on Harry? Sorry if I was unclear or annoying

Oh honey you’re not being annoying at all. I love getting asks and you’re in luck because this is my actual favorite Snarry trope of all time sfhlslklfhlfss. Snape’s capacity for love, his sense of loyalty, and his drive to protect other people (”lately only those I could not save” indeed) s l a y s  me. 

Here’s some fics from my ao3 bookmarks that I think fall into this category (potionsmasters avert your eyes towards the end because That Fic You Hate is gonna be on here). 

Transitive Property (2,745 words)

“I’m glad we’re friends now, Severus,” Harry said. He avoided adding, “And that you survived the war,” but Snape definitely heard it. “But you don’t need to come take care of me when I’m ill.“ 

 A little sickfic. Very, very sweet. I reread this about once a week.

Can’t Take The Sky (57,686 words)

One thing Dumbledore never told Harry about horcruxes, is that they are harder to destroy than to create.

Kind of dark and with a bit of a downer ending if we’re being honest here, but this absolutely fulfills your requirements; I’d go into detail but I don’t want to spoil it for you. Heed the author’s tags. 

The Beating Of This Fragile Heart  (33,139 words)

After the war, the last thing Severus Snape needs is the memory of a fleeting wartime kiss and a very persistent Harry Potter thwarting his plans to live a peaceful and solitary life. It’s only when Harry’s life is endangered that Severus is finally forced to confront his feelings head on.

I don’t remember reading this fic, tbh, but I bookmarked it around the time when I was easily reading a 70k Snarry fic a day so maybe I just blurred it together with something else. The description would seem to fit your search parameters. I should reread it probably. 

Laventadorn’s series The Never Ending Road (615,388 words, still being updated)

AU. When Lily died, Snape removed his heart and replaced it with a steel trap. But rescuing her daughter from the Dursleys in the summer of ’92 is the first step on a long road to discovering this is less true than he’d thought. A girl!Harry story, starting in Chamber of Secrets and continuing through Deathly Hallows. Future Snape/Harriet. Chamber of Secrets through Goblet of Fire is now complete. Order of the Phoenix is in progress.

Do not make the same mistake I did several months ago in passing over this story because it’s incomplete and features female!Harry. It is so good. It is so good. I cannot impress upon you how much you should, if you are looking for “Snape’s capacity for love and loyalty” fics, read this massive fic. The reading of these characters that I keep voicing to people when I tell them about this fic is that Harriet develops a crush on Snape based on the fact that he keeps flinging himself into danger on her behalf. Half way through GoF he makes an Unbreakable Vow to always protect her (it’s already had some frankly terrible consequences and I am positive will have some worse ones further down the road). It’s so heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. Snape is so wonderful and brave and loyal and he so clearly loves her, but he’s so closed off and stubborn and has close to zero emotional intelligence and is just generally a miserable old bat and I love watching the two of them interact as Harriet slowly learns not to take him too seriously because he’s got no idea what he’s doing when it comes to her. Gah. I love this fic and I’m so excited to see where it goes. 

Desolation Row (4808 words)

Five stages of grief, prison!fic style. 

Oooh boy is this angsty. I won’t spoil it for you but it definitely falls under “Snape’s intense capability for love and undying loyalty”. This is still haunting me, tbh. This particular author has that effect on me.

The Boy Who Died A Lot (71,767 words, although if you’d rather listen to it I’ve done five of the seven chapters into a podfic… I should really finish that up one of these days lmao)

Harry’s always been known as The Boy Who Lived. Only Severus knows that this is a lie. (Or: a portrait of Severus Snape, in seven acts.)

I love this fic with all my heart. It was one of the first Snarry fics I read and it plays on one of my favorite time travel tropes. If you can overlook some plotholes (which I can, I’m definitely a Stephen Moffat when it comes to writing in that as long as the thing makes me Feel All The Things and has reasonably consistent characterization I’m not too bothered about whether the logic is airtight) and don’t mind the fact that this is… ridiculous in some places (the author states that it started out as a crackfic and it shows) you should be good. Quite funny a lot of the time, but also angsty. Absolutely demonstrates Snape’s love and loyalty. Goddamn. I love this fic. 

Hopefully there’s something on here you’ve not read, I know I’ve seen a lot of these in other fic rec lists (that’s how I found them, after all). Thanks again for the ask!

I was just thinking about the fact that I feel way more awkward around black people than around whites and Asians, and that the reason could be uncharitably (and amusingly) described as “pro-black racism”.

That is, I have the intuition that all black people are more socially competent than all non-black people, and also that I’m at the very bottom of the distribution for black social skills. Admittedly, this probably has nothing to do with actual distributions and everything to do with personal experiences.

You see, I spent most of my life being by far the most awkward and visibly autistic person around my all-black peers. Then I managed to git gud at social skills right before leaving and moving to America where I quickly surrounded myself with a community of almost-all-white-and-Asian very autistic people, putting me at the far top end of the social skills distribution.

So now I have the two sets of experiences: “I’ve met lots of black people and been more awkward than pretty much all of them” and “I’ve met lots of whites and Asians and been more socially skilled than pretty much all of them”. This means, of course, that by transitive property, all the black people are more socially skilled than everyone else. The fact that 1) my own skill levels changed, and 2) I am not seeing a representative sample of pale folks doesn’t seem to register.

This, of course, is annoyingly self-reinforcing. When random black people speak to me I’m really anxious like “Oh no, oh no, I’m so awkward, oh no”, which makes me awkward. Meanwhile, when random white people talk to me, I have the unfailing confidence that my skills are better than theirs, which of course causes me to be smooth. So I can’t get out of this weird intuition equilibrium.

Which is all to say that I need to find other black autistics to hang out with.

funnygirlthatbelle  asked:

Okay, Cassie, I'm curious. What do you mean about Neville and the prophecy?

Okay, so Trelawney’s prophecy.

The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches… born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies… and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not… and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives… the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies….

We’re looking at the first half, the half that tells us the requirements whover fulfills this prophecy has to have. There are five.

1. They are male.

2. They are born at the end of July.

3. They are born to parents who have faced or defied Voldemort three times.

4. Voldemort will mark the person as his equal.

5. They will have a power Voldemort cannot understand.

We’re told in the books that Harry and Neville both fit the first three points, and so Voldemort chose the boy he felt was the greater danger, tried to end him, and instead ended up choosing which boy would fulfill the prophecy in full. And Voldemort chose Harry.

So Harry fulfills all five points before the series ever starts. Voldemort marked him as his equal by trying to kill him but instead giving him a necessary tool to defeat him, and the power Voldemort knows not is the protection of love from a life willingly sacrificed, in this case, Harry’s mother.

But here’s the thing. People act like because Voldemort chose Harry, that’s it for Neville, his path with the prophecy is done.

But it isn’t.

Neville fulfills the final two points on the list. It takes him a little longer, but he gets there.

Power Voldemort knows not? Harry goes to the forest intending to die; that intention gives everyone fighting at the castle, Neville included, the same protection Harry got from Lily. That’s why none of the spells hold them in the end of the battle. The Silencing spell doesn’t work. The Petrificus Totalus Voldemort puts on Neville doesn’t work. The people at Hogwarts who Harry died for can’t be harmed. Check.

Marked as Voldemort’s equal? Yep. In two distinct ways. First, he’s marked as Harry’s equal. Harry chooses Neville as his replacement when he thinks he’s going to die in the forest. That’s why he tells Neville to kill the snake. Neville is hand selected to take Harry’s place – that’s the very phrase used – and if Neville is Harry’s equal and Harry is Voldemort’s equal, then Neville is also Voldemort’s equal. Transitive property, bitches.

But for those of you who need Voldemort personally to mark Neville as he equal, okay fine. He totally does. In exactly the same way he marks Harry. When Harry was a child, Voldemort singled him out as an enemy, attempted to destroy him, and in the process handed Harry a necessary tool to defeat him. In the second half of the final battle, Voldemort does the same thing with Neville. He singles him out from the crowd to make an example of him, uses the Sorting Hat to light him on fire and presumably kill him, and in so doing, hands Neville the tool he needs to defeat Voldemort. With Harry, it was the fragment of soul attached to his brain. With Neville, it was the basilisk-venom-soaked Sword of Gryffindor. But were necessary and instrumental in Voldemort’s defeat.

But wait! I hear you saying. Neville didn’t defeat Voldemort! So how can you say he fulfilled the prophecy?

Very easily. First of all, Trelawney didn’t say The one who WILL defeat Voldemort will be born yada yada yada, she said the one with the POWER TO defeat Voldemort, and second of all, Harry didn’t defeat Voldemort either. Voldemort defeated himself. He cast the curse that ended him; Harry just held the mirror up to Medusa, as it were. But Harry’s real role in defeating Voldemort was in removing the obstacles that stood between Voldemort and mortality – his horcruxes. And Neville destroyed just as many horcruxes as Harry did. Harry destroyed the diary. Neville destroyed the snake. Voldemort died at Neville’s hands just as much as he died at Harry’s.

So yeah. Neville and Harry were children of that prophecy together, and they both fulfilled it in the end.

Jeon Jungkook has always been a strange one. With his toned, muscular body and contradictory adorable bunny face, his absurd athleticism and ridiculous ability to do anything and everything perfectly, it’s a wonder how he’s even human.

You’ve watched him grow and change over the last few years, become the man he is today. And that man… That man… Oh boy, where do you start?

When he first came to BigHit, he was so small, so shy. Whenever you did his makeup or helped him get dressed, he would always look straight ahead, never at you, and definitely not in your eyes. You didn’t see this as rudeness. You’ve worked with countless trainees in the past, and knew that having all these people constantly touching you takes some getting used to.

He quickly grew out of his shyness and became more confident (maybe a little too confident)  in his looks and his abilities. Within the first year of his debut, he changed so drastically that, looking back, you have a hard time processing that the little, shy boy who came to you nearly six years ago was the same man who is seated before you right now.
