steve & natasha au! series / ‘crazy stupid love’ inspired

“You!” she shouted through the bar, ignoring the dozen of eyes on her.

“Buck?” he asked as he saw his friend pause in the midst of a sentence. Seeing how his best friend had stopped abruptly his sentence, the blonde turned around only to see a redhead, the one from the other night. She’s the friend of the brunette Bucky tried to pick up, he remembered.

(“He’s sweet and smart, okay, but he kinda looks like a cauliflower” the brunette told her friend.

“Who looks like a cauliflower?” Bucky interrupted the ladies. “Hi” he smiled, “I’m Bucky, this is my friend Steve” he added, unable to take his eyes off of the brunette.

“Hi” the brunette said smiling, while Natasha looked confused and a little bit annoyed by the intrusion of the very handsome pair “I’m Wanda, this is Natasha”, Wanda added.

“Who looks like a cauliflower?” Bucky asked again.

“Uh, Bruce Banner” Wanda said, almost stuttering her words. Oh, she was so under his spell. “My friend thinks he’s sexy." 

"Well, see, my best friend here, thinks you’re very sexy.” Bucky said turning to Natasha. “As for me, I happen to find you very attractive” he said turning back to Wanda. What a charmer.)

Her heels almost clicking with the faint music of the bar, she walked towards the blonde decidedly. Furrowing his eyebrows, he wondered what all this was about. Why was she shouting across the bar? why was she walking towards him? why was she walking towards him like that? and most importantly, why was she kissing him?!

Her hands were on both side of his face, seizing him; her body was leaning close against his, and her lips were pressed against his own. So, yes, she was kissing him, he wasn’t hallucinating!

Sure, the kiss had surprised him at first, but what surprised him the most was the way he reacted to it. Because as soon as he realized the pair of lips he had on his own and how soft they were, he wrapped his arms around her tiny waist and actually lifted her up in the air, deepening the kiss and tasting the vodka she had sunk down a few minutes before.

“Remember me?” she said when they broke away, still in his arms.

“Yeah” he faintly said, looking in her eyes.

“Still find me attractive?” he nodded.

“Want to bring me home?” he nodded again.

THIS IS SO BAD OMG IM SORRY. THE EDIT, THE TEXT. I CANT WITH ME. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS SO BAD WHY AM I EVEN POSTING THIS LOL (probably because i spent my night on this instead of studying for my exams lol) if i delete my tumblr it’s probably because of the embarrassment i got from posting this rip me. also english isn’t my first language and uh this is also another reason why this is bad lol 

elmarayahs  asked:

Omg I saw all the Korrasami on my dash from your blog and I got hit with nostalgia because Korrasami is my OTP forever and always. Do you have a fic rec by chance?

Yeah sorry about that, I fell into a Korrasami shipping hole. I have extremely high standards for fan fic so most of the fics on my list are nothing short of amazing.



They say that true love hurts. Well, this could almost kill me. by frenetic_core

“In a world where you share in the pain of your soul mate, the Avatar’s other half has it pretty rough. (Soul mate AU where they can feel each other’s physical and emotional pain to a degree.) Updates sporadically. Will cover Books 1-4.” This is pretty fucking amazing but it’s not finished. I still highly highly HIGHLY recommend you read this. 


Venti Sized Crush by ZoeReed

“Tumblr prompt: I’m a barista and you’re the obnoxious customer who comes through and orders a venti macchiato while talking on the phone the whole time so I mispell your name in increasingly creative ways every day AU.” This is pretty good, it’s not my favorite but it manages to be fluffy and somehow still angsty. 


The Seeking Balance Series by SimplyKorra

“The story of Korra’s recovery, starting from the night after her fight with The Red Lotus. This is a detailed account of the things she went through, how it affected her and those who love her. With the added twist of her saying yes when Asami asks to go with her to the Southern Water Tribe to heal.” Definitely my favorite Book 3 fic, or even my favorite one ever. It does such a wonderful job dealing with Korra’s recovery and PTSD and the priority of their relationship and ugh, just go fucking read it already it’s just everything I imagined it to be. 


Cool For the Summer by iamyouropus (adieu_sweetamaryllis)

“It’s been three years since Korra left for college. Three long years since she’s talked to her friends. Now, she’s coming home for the summer just in time for a road trip with the old gang.Korrasami beach-house AU slow burn. Mentions of past Korra/Kuvira. Might be mentions of Mako/Wu.” This is one of my favorite AUs ever. It deals with Korra struggling with coming out and it’s just fucking amazing. It’s still being updated and I’m a beta for this story and you HAVE to read this.


I Could Make You New Legs by psocoptera

“For the first month after Korra leaves, Asami doodles wheelchairs. Post episode 4x02. An Asami-centric companion piece to ‘Korra Alone’.” I’m not going to lie, I cried. This is a one-shot and it’s beautiful and it’s probably not supposed to make me cry but it hit me in all the right spots also here I am crying. Just go read it okay?


all our lives by valedictories

“Asami is her heart; Asami is her home. And soon, now, Asami will be her wife. (Alternatively: Korra really needs to find better hiding places for important things.)” This is also a one-shot and written beautifully.


if these sheets were the states by neurolingual

“(“I love you.” Asami presses her words over the bruise on Korra’s eye. She echoes it on every cut and bandage she can find on Korra’s body, feels Korra’s hand in her hair, feels Korra’s heartbeat underneath her lips, warm and strong and alive. Alive.

Korra’s mouth burns like fire against Asami’s lips, hands framing Asami’s ribs when Asami pulls the sheets over them, closes the world away. Asami stops wondering what it’s like to imagine and curls into the real thing).” Another one-shot that I also cried reading. It’s fucking amazing and I am so happy we have such tremendous writers in this fandom.


eclipse by clarias

“Korra growing up in the South Pole.” This one’s a shorty but it’s so beautiful and gods I need to find more adjectives but there’s just so many great ones out there and just go read this please.


It’s such a gorgeous sight to see you in the middle of the night by natashass

“She texts Bolin: Good news: Asami isn’t a ghost that eats my ramen noodles.” This is the second most read fic in the entire Korrasami fandom I think and for good reason. This was the first Korrasami fic I read and I wasn’t disappointed. 


The Electric Soldier by lupinely

“When Jinora finds Korra in the swamp, she tells Korra that a group calling themselves the normalists have kidnapped and killed Asami. At least, that’s what they say they’ve done. A Captain America: The Winter Soldier-inspired season 4 AU.” THIS. THIS FUCKED ME UP BIG TIME. LIKE. HOLY FUCKING SHIT. YOU NEED TO READ THIS NOW. RIGHT NOW. MY FAVORITE FIC OF ALL TIME. 


All Roads by tofsla

“Republic City to Ba Sing Se, with a number of lessons learnt in the process. Korra and Asami take a road trip.” Another great, great, GREAT one-shot.


Like Broken Thunder by neurolingual

“They’re the last ones in the mess hall, so they’re at the end of the line, but Asami doesn’t care. She can see the skin on Korra’s shoulders move, stretching the dusted freckles near her neck when she motions through the technique she learned from her father when she was waist high, too. Just like Asami.” This is fucking awesome and made me miss camp all over again fuck.



Here is my soul, I hope you like it. 

“You’re not weak. Hey look at me,” she caressed his cheek and turned his chin up to face her.

“I’m sorry, I never cry… It’s jus—” he fumbled for the right words but ultimately lowered his head and shamefully shook it.

Another sob escaped his chest and he heaved a sigh. She held him close and whispered soothing words into his ear.

“It’s okay, I promise you are NOT weak, you hear me? We all need to let it out sometimes,” she said.

He still looked upset, disappointed in himself over something stupid like this…

“I love you,” she whispered truthfully.“ She had never told him those three words before, he picked up his head.

“I love you just as much as I did yesterday and the same amount of love I’ll give you in ten years. I don’t think of you any differently because of this.”

He stared into her deep brown eyes with his blood-shot ones, not fully understanding what she had just explained.

“I’m serious!” She told him. “I think when men cry it’s a sign that they’re capable of emotion and understanding. They don’t need to be strong and tough all the time, you guys have feelings too. I know that.”

A smile spread across his face and he leaned in to kiss her forehead, brushing the loose hair behind her ear.

“If it’s possible…” she cautioned, “I love you more now than I ever did before I saw you shed a tear.”

And it was that day that he knew he had found the right girl. Even when he was at his weakest she still made him feel strong and protective. She cared as much for him as he did for her and luckily, that was all he needed.“

—  for those of you who think men who cry are weak.
Hamilton Fic Reader

I finally dragged @fractalbright into Hamilton so to celebrate, I’ve compiled a fanfic reader for her! If I’m aware the author is on tumblr, I’ve done my best to @ them. If I missed anyone, please let them know! Please tread cautiously; most authors include potential content warnings in the tag, so I haven’t bothered unless something really stuck in my mind. If you like a fanfic, let the author know! Most of them have written fics beyond what I’ve linked here, and you should check those out too. 

* indicates historical RPF rather than musical portrayals
