A Matter of Time by @thatscomplex (Complete) Xena crossover. This is probably the best possible way to solve season 3. The kitsch of Xena’s world brings enough humour and nostalgia to make this Cophine make-up fic the light-hearted but heartstring-pully foray it should be.
America’s New Hope by @probablytatiana (Ongoing) Captain America crossover. I have little knowledge of Captain America but that’s okay because this fic is told in great detail and the slow building of the Cophine relationship is pulling me in.
Good Tidings We (Don’t) Bring by bs13 (Ongoing) The Family Man AU. I am in awe of writers who make billion-word chapters. I love opening a fic update and seeing that the scrollbar is tiny. This story, with Delphine waking up in the life that could have been, is wonderfully told and full of domestic fluffs that will kill you.
The Proposalby temporarytravesty (Ongoing) The Proposal AU. Being the Sandra Bullock fan that I am, this immediately grabbed me. I love the premise of Delphine on the verge of deportation, having to fake-marry Cosima. I have not had my fill of bossbitch Delphine and never will!
9 minutes, 47 seconds by Saffello (Complete) Anomaly AU. I thought this was the neatest fic. It’s not the typical relationship dynamic you find in Cophine fics and the premise is really cool, unraveling bit by bit. Just read it.
Pheromones by @enferauparadis (Complete) X-Men AU. Of course this would be Delphine’s mutation. ;) Very cute one-shot for the mutant in you.
By Myth and Modal Melody by @residentgeekscientist (Complete) Percy Jackson crossover. In which Delphine is a demigod and Cosima is (or isn’t?) Medusa. A fluffish re-do of Cophine’s origins with a little mythology thrown in. Splendid.
Petri Dishes by BitterBlue (Ongoing?) His Dark Materials AU. I like this universe, even though I am unfamiliar with it. The way all these little Cophine moments that make you swoon pop up in these vignettes is wonderful and intriguing and I wish there was more.
Elevators (for a Brighter Future!) by immunologie (Ongoing?) Glee crossover. Lt. Cormier. You really don’t need any other reasons to read this, but it’s expertly written and the Cophine is super, so there’s that.
One Day We’ll All Be Ghosts by Sanetwin (Ongoing?) Les Revenants AU. I fear this fic has been abandoned but what there is of it is so good. Cosima returns not knowing she was dead, setting up for great Cophine angst. Great beginning.
As I’m hitting the tenth theme mark, I am also approaching my two-year anniversary as a theme maker (can you believe it’s been so long and how far I’ve gotten? it’s a bit surreal, man. or, okay. a lot surreal), I decided to celebrate by putting together a theme pack…and good god, what a ride it has been. This set took inspiration from nature — specifically, from honeybees — and the result is my best work yet. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. ❤
Special thank yous to bane, for being helpful (as always), to alex (for sending me memes at 4 am to power me through), and to the people at bibtown for being very understanding of my slow descent into madness. Y’all rock.
「 THEME #010: HONEYCOMB by angelicxi 」

Honeycomb is where it all started. I’ve been
meaning to make a theme pack since the beginning of this month, but I
lacked the inspiration. Then, one night, I dreamed of bees…and eureka
happened. It’s a versatile, fun theme, and it will work great with
personal & aesthetic blogs.

This would’ve featured even more hexagons but, alas, they didn’t want to cooperate with me. So instead you get something that is extremely simple and extremely clean to freshen up your palette. A bit like ginger, only…without the sushi.
