CLASSICS (favorites)

The Art Of Being Extraordinary - if you haven’t read this already, wyd? The ending will destroy you - be prepared to cry. 

Letters From War - another extremely well known fic among swen. a heart-wrenching and beautifully written AU fic. even if AUs aren’t your thing, seriously, give this one a try.

Emma is a soldier on reserve in Fort Benning. Regina is the Mayor of Storybrooke. Through a pen pal program designed to ease the ache of homesick soldiers, Emma and Regina begin sending letters to one another as their relationship grows from cordial acquaintance to something neither woman would have expected - until the letters stop coming.

A Trail Of Destruction - DEFINITELY a classic imo. this is one of my favorite fanfictions of all time.

A hostage situation in City Hall leaves behind a battered, broken sheriff, and a mayor wracked with guilt. Trigger warnings for violence and gun threats and general angst. Slow-burn swan queen.

Miles To Go - AU; emma and regina meet at a party and the rest is history. this ones pretty long (80 chapters), but so worth the read! angsty & lots of ‘sexy times’ 

Everyone has their own story, this one is theirs and it paints the picture of a love story that spans over two decades, with all the ups and downs and everything else in between. SwanQueen AU
 

Of Love and Loathing - a lot of angry sex in the beginning, which eventually turns into lovey sex. another well known and well written fic - this author is one of my favorites. *reaaallyyy hot smut 

“I have been sleeping with someone,” Regina began tentatively, an acute awareness that once she said the words out loud that the madness behind her highly unorthodox situation became all the more real, “whom I absolutely loathe.” •Emma/Regina•

Meet me Halfway - one of the first swan queen fan fictions i ever read! still a classic to this day. AU

Emma Swan works hard every night as a bartender, struggling to raise her son and save up enough to own her own bar. Regina Mills is an upper class New York photographer who wouldn’t normally spare a second glance at people below her. When their paths cross, their lives adapt to each other, but how much are they willing to change?

Love Undefined - in the process of re-reading this one because of how much i love it. angsty as hell but such a beautiful story.

It’s been eight years since the last time Regina and Emma saw each other, eight years since Emma lost part of her happiness, her family, and everything fell apart. But she hasn’t forgotten those three years in New York, or any of what Regina had brought into her life. A late night phone call to Regina takes Emma back eleven years to when they met, saved each other from loneliness, and Emma started learning what it meant to live. She relives the moments that had changed her life for the better, and even the ones that had hurt.

Teacher’s Pet - KNOWN AS THE ONE TEACHER/STUDENT FANFIC THAT EVERYONE HAS READ. 

Emma Swan is starting her senior year. Her friends tell her about the Creative Writing teacher that she has on her schedule and how no one had passed her class with an A, not even her bookworm friend, Belle. What will she do? And who exactly is this ‘bitchy Evil Queen’ as they claim her to be? SwanQueen. Student/Teacher. M for language and future chapters.

Lost in Translation - i wasn’t sure about this before reading it but i LOVED it. the description pretty much sums it up.

AU. Regina is deaf. Emma is the only one who refuses to give her pity. In response, Regina is thrilled by this new challenge and the stand-offs commence, but over time she finds out there is more to the blonde woman than just a target to throw a stinging quip and pointed glare at.

Send Up a Signal - emma and regina are actresses and their fans ship them with each other. ;)

Emma Swan is catapulted into stardom, the newest lead actress on a sanitized show featuring modern fairytales. Regina Mills is a long-undermined star with a chip on her shoulder and a thousand reasons why she’s invested. Naturally, they loathe each other on sight.Their characters’ fanbases, however, have other ideas.

Reset - SO. GOOD. 95 chapters. if you’re looking for long fanfics, this is for you. 

Following the breaking of the curse everyone in Storybrooke is finding their happy ending, with one exception. Resigning herself to having lost Henry’s love and respect forever, Regina decides there is only one path available to her.

Take Me Home Tonight - AU!! lots of smut :) this is a newer one that i’ve seen around twitter and tumblr and i really enjoyed it! this one’s pretty short (14 chapters)

AU: Nineteen year old Emma Swan is a senior at the exclusive all girls boarding school, Foxhaven Academy. When her friends find out she’s a virgin they send her to the city to find a guy to take her v-card. But Emma is more interested in a sexy older woman she meets in a bar. A SwanQueen story.

The Staircase - non-consensual sex in the first chapter, so please be aware of that; its not for eveyone. this story is very dark but has a happy ending i promise!

Regina could still smell her cologne and feel the cheap pleather pressing into her back. The brunette sucked in a breath. She was still lying on the floor at the staircase’s base and she stared back up at it. Everything was different now. Changed. She felt broken by what had just happened, appalled and enraged, dirty. WARNING: NC17 for non-consensual sex. Dark. (But gets lighter.)

the trouble with emma - very very well known within the swan queen community. i’ll be honest, i never really got into the story but i can acknowledge that it is the most well-written fanfiction i have read to date. the author is truly talented. (the first in a series of fanfics)

Post ep 4x23, Emma becomes the Dark One and learns nothing is quite as it seems or as simple as black versus white. When Regina removes the curse no one in Storybrooke is prepared for the far reaching fallout which leaves none of their lives unaltered or untouched, least of all Regina’s.

SMUT 

shadow haven  - the one smut fic everyone has read.

Emma Swan is a PR agent who is sent on a holiday by her boss. Regina Mills is the owner of a private island named Shadow Haven. There is more to Regina than initially meets the eye. This story dips heavily into the BDSM subculture. Swan Queen romance / BDSM story.

the wicked stepmother - the one kinky fic everyone has read- or attempted to. i couldn’t get through the whole thing but the first few chapters,,, holy hell.

When the Evil Queen catches baby Emma along with Snow White, she decides on a new revenge. In Storybrooke, Snow White will be allowed to raise her daughter… but on her eighteenth birthday, Regina will come for her. Emma might just enjoy that.

in control  - Regina had never been in the habit of relinquishing control, but when it came to Emma Swan, she was starting to find out that giving in had its benefits. - Established Swan Queen - One Shot. Rated M for language and content.

the collar - It will carry strong mature themes as well as a Mistress/Slave relationship but it is also a lot more than that. However, as a warning this story will celebrate the shades of grey of our favourite couple as they find their way to each other and will deal with darker elements of their characters. Emma’s history differs a little from canon but will be covered by the story but there is no Henry and she is an adult in this fiction.

a little taste  - author of A Fine Line and Letters from War. 

Emma has been desperate to know what it’s like to kiss the smirk off of Regina Mills, but when she finally gets the chance, it doesn’t seem to be enough.

tempest - A storm ushers in an expected opportunity for Regina to finally rid herself of Emma Swan. She will posses the sheriff’s heart and then crush it. But what happens when nothing goes as planned? Rated M for language and Swan Queen sexytimes.

come on be nice - Regina has decided that the quickest way to get rid of Emma Swan is to scare off the commitment phobic woman with a come-on. This, as with many of Regina’s plans, does not go as, well, planned. Rated M for Swan Queen sex.

black lace - Emma and Henry find a way around the 'no visiting’ rule involving binoculars and the walkie talkie. Emma’s attention is fully on her son, she truly doesn’t intend to watch Regina at all. At least until the mayor begins undressing in front of her window..

dirty words - Regina is plagued by thoughts of a certain blonde. Deciding she is in need of cathartic release, she writes a quick narrative in hopes of cleansing her system. However, by a happy accident, the story falls into the wrong hands. What will Emma do with this new and intriguing insight into the mayor’s mind?

damn you, miss swan  Emma visits the mayor one night with a bottle of wine to cheer her up. Anger issues and smeared lippy ensues. WARNING: Includes a non-explicit passing reference to rape. This is my first story. A/N Jan 2015: Way back when I wrote this, no one knew anyone’s back stories, so I just made up stuff. Don’t be upset for canon divergence if you read it now. It wasn’t canon then.

mirror tricks The Evil Queen has made her way to Storybrooke, but she only seems to be interested in one thing: Emma. When Regina realises this, her jealousy starts to get the better of her.

my enemy’s enemy After her mother’s death, Regina finds a terrible surprise hidden among the witch’s belongings. Unfortunately, the only one able to cure her from the ailment is Emma…if she agrees. Strong language and mature themes. First stab at SwanQueen :)

ANGST

to remember her happy ending - “She doesn’t even remember her family! How am I going to explain this to her when she hates me!” She was falling apart now. The way the women in the other room had just looked at her, with such disdain. That wasn’t her wife. That was the Mayor, the Evil Queen maybe…but not her wife.

for endings are where we begin Regina Mills is your average working mom - she spends long hours at her bakery, loves her son Henry with all that she is, and can touch dead things and bring them back to life.Emma Swan is an orphan, an ex-convict, and a bail bondsperson residing in Massachusetts. She is also currently dead.This is the story of how they meet.

the loudest silence - New to Chicago Emma, a professional cellist, is shocked to find that a beautiful deaf woman is her new president of the board. As their friendship grows Emma begins to wonder, what does it look like when a world of sound and a world of silence meet somewhere in the middle? SwanQueen AU

broken 16 year Emma Swan is a preachers daughter on a tight leash, what happens when Regina Mills returns to town, dark, mysterious and dangerous? Will her father’s expectations take over or will Emma follow her heart? Is Regina legit or is Emma cute little pawn? Will Emma be able to love Regina for who she is or will her dark past ruin it ALL! SwanQueen G!P Some BDSM

bring her home Cora’s dead. Henry lives with the Charmings. Regina continues spiraling through grief and loss and hatred. Then Emma suddenly falls unconscious and Henry shows up at Regina’s door because he needs her help to bring Emma back. Reluctantly, Regina embarks on a wild swan chase through Emma’s mind, a whirlwind of ‘roads‐less‐traveled’ and ‘what‐ifs’ and ‘might‐have‐beens’, in order to bring her home.

if the blazer fits Emma decides to dress up like Regina for a Halloween party at The Rabbit Hole, a seemingly innocent decision that surprisingly leads to a relationship. The romance is openly feared by some and secretly despised by an unlikely source, who plots to end it.

a fine line Upon Regina’s banishment, the small town of Storybrooke becomes protected once again by an enchantment that prevents anyone from leaving or entering Storybrooke. Emma and Regina find themselves on the edge of the town, wishing for a way to the other side.

a pale imitation Regina is furious with Emma after she brings back Marian, but since she can’t take it out on her, Regina creates a mindless clone of Emma to hit instead. The clone doesn’t stay mindless for long though, developing an obsession with Regina. Written for summer 2014 Swan Queen Big Bang. (TW for sexual assault/rape and graphic depictions of violence)

FLUFF

one fine mess - Regina’s gut twisted with an agonizing pull and, for just a moment, she thought she might need to take up the same position as the woman crouched before her. “You’re pregnant?” she whispered grimly. Emma’s only response was to turn and retch into the toilet again. — Swan Queen, magic!pregnancy

coffee at midnight - (so good) Slow burn AU that starts with two women from different parts of the USA meeting on Twitter. Emma is an insomniac loner who is a Personal Trainer. Regina is a writer with a sleepless baby. Their lack of sleep and love for coffee soon brings them together and after that they find it hard to part. This is a fic where coffee is taking to mythical levels, despite it’s bad effect on people with insomnia and people with babies - showing that sometimes what you need and want isn’t always the thing that is wholesome and harmless. But also that denying yourself it will only lead to misery, something which Regina has to apply to other parts of her life.

all the single ladies With the library in desperate need of renovation, Storybrooke prepares for a fundraising dinner and bachelorette auction. What mischief and romance can be found as a result? SwanQueen with some RedBeauty Rating has been raised to M - now including adult content.


TEACHER+STUDENT / EMPLOYEE+BOSS

teacher’s pet - see above (classics)

take me home tonight - see above (classics)

step into my office, baby  - This is what you get for doing the nice thing, Emma thinks. You do that whole Pay It Forward bullshit - you buy a lady some coffee and you pretend like it isn’t totally motivated by how she looks in a pencil skirt - and she goes and insults your business card and turns out to be your company’s new Executive Director. Real fucking cute.From now on, she is drinking tea.or, the one where they’re in an office.

teaching miss mills  - Swan Queen Teacher AU: Emma is a gym teacher, who moves to Storybrooke Academy after becoming disenchanted with her job back in Boston.

is that so, miss swan? - College student, Emma Swan, is confronted by her favorite professor and secret heart-throb, Dr. Regina Mills. What happens when Emma is forced to reveal her secrets? We shall see. AU. Slightly OOC at times. No magic. SwanQueen. Rated M for serious language and eventual sexy times between our two favorite ladies.

butterfly effect - in her final year of college, Emma finds she has more to account for than the extra credits she needs in order to graduate. Only… she doesn’t expect it to come in the form of her newest instructor, Professor Regina Mills. Complete. AU Swan Queen

a sophisticated seduction Emma’s a college student, working as an intern at the Dazzle Magazine for a powerful woman she has never had the good fortune of meeting. But everything in her life is about to change when they finally meet. Especially when one falls so deeply in love with the other and the insecurities from a broken marriage comes to light. (Not Based on The Devil Wears Prada)

some other faves

down east decisions - Massachusetts State Police Capt. Emma Swan leaves her red-hot career to become the police chief of sleepy Storybrooke, Maine. She’s hoping for a less-complicated, less-dangerous life, a desire that is dashed on both counts. AU. No magic. Crime drama and romance. Swan Queen is endgame.

that drunken night - Emma’s wasted and accidentally calls Regina instead of her mom. And Regina isn’t as loathe to talk to the blonde as she usually pretends. Did things change between them so radically while they were in Neverland? (No copyright infringement intended.)

chasing henry - SQ. Tired of the tricks and lies of both of his mothers, Henry follows the dwarves, Red and Granny when they use Tiny’s magic beans to return themselves to their old land. Emma and Regina both chase after him, and they reluctantly travel together through the Enchanted Forest in order to find him and bring him back home safely.

so does this make us both the other woman? - Set after 3b in a peaceful Storybrooke where Regina is with Robin and Emma’s fallen into a relationship with Hook. Shame about all that subtext that’s rapidly threatening to become text.

Taurus: Mushishi - 46 Episodes (2 seasons)

“Mushi”: the most basic forms of life in the world. They exist without any goals or purposes aside from simply “being.” They are beyond the shackles of the words “good” and “evil.” Mushi can exist in countless forms and are capable of mimicking things from the natural world such as plants, diseases, and even phenomena like rainbows.

This is, however, just a vague definition of these entities that inhabit the vibrant world of Mushishi, as to even call them a form of life would be an oversimplification. Detailed information on Mushi is scarce because the majority of humans are unaware of their existence.

So what are Mushi and why do they exist? This is the question that a “Mushishi,” Ginko, ponders constantly. Mushishi are those who research Mushi in hopes of understanding their place in the world’s hierarchy of life.

Ginko chases rumors of occurrences that could be tied to Mushi, all for the sake of finding an answer.

It could, after all, lead to the meaning of life itself.

This system works thanks to a fundamental rule wherein each party must wager something they deem to be of equal value to the other party’s wager. In this strange land where the very idea of humanity is reduced to child’s play, the indifferent genius gamer duo of Sora and Shiro have finally found a real reason to keep playing games: to unite the sixteen races of Disboard, defeat Tet, and become the gods of this new, gaming-is-everything world.

We need to talk about Hurricane fucking Irma.

We need to talk about this bitch. First of all, BEFORE she even arrives at Florida, Irma will go through the Caribbean as a Hurricane category 5. Now, is not the first one in history to go through the Caribbean leaving chaos and havoc behind. Irma is, though, the strongest bitch since Patricia. I’ll get to that. 

So Houston, Texas just went through Hurricane Harvey, cat. 4. If you think that, that display of destruction was bad, just wait until Irma starts showing off. Puerto Rico is a really small island, THERE WOULD NOT BE A PART OF THE ISLAND UNTOUCHED BY IRMA, WITHOUT A MIRACLE!!!! 

Katrina category 5, former princess baddest bitch in town, ain’t shit compared to Irma. Don’t get me wrong Katrina left a trail of destruction, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Multiply that shit by 100 and that’s exactly what the Caribbean is about to get. 

Sandy, category 3, one of the deadliest of 2012, is about to be turned into child’s play by Irma. Irma is not here to fuck around. People were hoping for Irma to chill, the bitch said, aha? LOL NO. 

Hurricane Andrew category 5. LOL boy, 1992 called,  they just said good luck. You people do not understand, Irma, is stronger than all of these hurricanes. Is even stronger than Wilma former, heir to baddest bitch in town throne, category 5 from 2005. 

Then we have Hurricanes Georges, category 4, 18 years ago; and Hugo category 5. I personally lived through Georges, it was scary, i can still hear the wind and the sound of the windows about to burst, but we got through it. I am fine with hurricanes strong enough to reach category 4, but the moment it hits category 5, my heart stops. Hugo left a shit ton of destruction, chaos, and havoc as well. Irma is about to cover ( no seriously, cover all the island) my island and destroy it, unless, somehow it chills the fuck down. 

Now, Irma by the time that was entering the Leeward Islands was already with winds at a whooping 185mph. Bye Katrina ( winds up t 175 mph). Bye Wilma (winds up to 183 mph). We are talking about gorgeous small islands like Antigua, St. Kitts, Barbuda, etc… we literally have nowhere to evacuate to.

 From more recent hurricanes, Irma is second to the baddest bitch in town, Patricia, with winds up to a whooping 215mph. Irma, what’s good? no seriously, Irma chill.  Hurricane Patricia was baaaaaaaad, like reaaaaally bad, and somehow we managed to avoid that. IDK how, but I am not complaining, now Mexico and the US weren’t so lucky. Irma is only 30 MPH BEHIND PATRICIA! Guys 30 miles per hour, is like ONLY 10mph over a school zone at the USA. LET THAT SINK IN!!! Irma is going for it!!! The only difference is that Irma is sooooo powerful that you can get readings of Irma on devices to detect earthquakes, well thanks Irma. 

Puerto Rico hasn’t recently had a hurricane like Patricia, but Irma is the first one of its strength and power since the 1928 hurricane Okeechobee a.k.a the San Felipe Segundo .Ask your abuelas and abuelos about it, shit ask them about Hugo too, he was an asshole too. Officially classified as category 5 hurricane and one of the deadliest tropical cyclones in the history of the Atlantic area. So, Okee had winds up to 160mph, but then Irma is here like 185mph, HIIIIIIIII and we are like NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! BITCH BYEEEEEEEEE!!!! It might not seem like a lot but here’s  a perspective of all the people Irma is about  hit and again no airline will take the risk to fly anyone out and i get it. In moments like this one, the Caribbean Islands are usually on their own, until the storm passes. 

Irma is getting stronger and by the time it reaches Florida, the bitch will die a little. The moment a hurricane hits land and cooler waters, it dies, which HEY FLORIDA GOOD NEWS, Irma might just be a category 4 for you!!!  I take a category 4 over a 5 any given time. I’m not saying is good, but compared to what is about to happen….you have to choose your deadly posion. The USA media is focusing in Florida and glossing over the Caribbean, and I get it Florida is at risk, but let’s face it, so ARE WE. 

Irma is giving the Typhoon Tip a.k.a the Typhoon Warling, a run for it’s money too. Cause coming after Patricia is not enough. Ask your parents about this Typhoon, form back in 1979. The highest wind speed recorded were up to 190mph sustained for a minute or so, unlike Patricia, who just reached it… hold me bitch!!!!  In other words HIIIIIII!! WE ARE THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS AND IRMA IS FUCKING SHIT UP!!! WE WILL APPRECIATE THE HELP, THANKS!!

So, keep in mind that yeah Florida is about to get fucked up, but the Caribbean is up  first!!!! And we are about to get HELLA FUCKED!! That’s all!! Thanks for your attention, and PLEASE TAKE YOUR PETS WITH YOU!!! AND CONTACT YOUR LOVED ONES!!

ALSO SHOUT OUT TO THE USA MEDIA FOR GIVING US AND THE REST OF THE CARIBBEAN ATTENTION…..let me know when it happens!!! 


Edit: Just so you have an idea about the wind power!!

Why Slowpphire matters

Note: the following theory is the brain child of an anon on /sug/. I do not claim responsibility for this theory, only for this explanation and a minor modification of its framing

I’m sure by now a lot of you have seen Slowpphire the adorable pink sapphire whose grasp of the future seems a few minutes out date. Between her quirky defect, her top-notch character design and her tentative shipping with Pink!Lars she’s taken the fandom by storm, and leaving a trail of destruction in her wake the FEMA seems disinterested in attending to.

Fans were hasty to catch on to Slowpphire’s defective future vision and nickname her based on the assumption that her sight is out of sync by a matter of minutes. But first glances can be deceiving, and Slowpphire’s ability may not be what it seems.

Seeing the future from a few minutes ago is a disability as far as Sapphires go, but if Sapphires were designed for short term prediction alone they would not be valuable enough to be considered Upper Crust. If this Sapphire is considered a defective outcast on par with pair of conjoined twins, a mixed-gem fusion containing a pearl and whatever that monstrous gem centipede is, it suggests that her defect is far more debilitating than a syncing issue. Slowpphire doesn’t have future vision, she has Past Vision!

As far as super powers go, postcognition generally stands on the power tier beneath such classics as talking to fish, detachable arms, and having giant sticky grapes for hair. The ability to see the past is useless to those of us who are confined to the present, and though homeworld has access to at least two forms Faster Than Light travel and a time machine it’s pretty clear from where I’m standing that gems try to avoid fucking with the timeline.

However, even useless superpowers can be handy if used correctly, and Slowpphire is no exception. You see, hindsight can’t tell you what comes next, but it can tell you what happened, and in all of Steven Universe the greatest remaining mystery to both the viewers and Steven is a question of what happened. Pink Sapphire can show us what happened to Pink Diamond!

Yes, I said show. Any old enough gem can tell Steven what happened, but words are limited, memories unreliable and the crystal gems have proved themselves deceitful when it comes to sheltering Steven. Slowpphire and Slowpphire alone can show Steven what happened that night, all she needs to do is pass her vision on to him, something we’ve seen Garnet do twice in the past, and he can open his eyes and watch as a diamond falls before him

My James, Your Bucky (One Shot)

You’ve had it way too sweet and fluffy from me for a while now, so I’m gonna bring you right back to the pit of despair and angst with this one shot.

Something tells me this is something @sebbys-girl would particularly enjoy;)


Summary: You and Bucky live together in Bucharest. One day you come home to find your flat completely trashed.


Word count: 2.3k


Warnings: angst, aggressive behaviour.

It was shaping out to be a great day – it was still pre-noon and you had an extra spring in your step as you walked through the cobbled streets of Bucharest. The city you fell in love with, it had it all – alleys lined with tall brick townhouses and red roofs, atmospheric cafes and bars, an impressive market square – where you stopped to pick up a box of plums from ‘your guy’. That’s how you wanted to celebrate, with a cheeky nod to how you two first met.

Pavlov had it all wrong

I am a single adult human living in a house with two corgis. Got Girldog from a shelter when she was about a year, year and a half old maybe; got Boydog a few years later as an 8-week puppeh. And let me tell you something, from Day One, this has been a three-way psychological experiment. I no longer know who is manipulating who on a daily basis.

  • One of the first things I trained Girldog to do was not to bark at the dinner table; if she barked at me while I was eating, I put her in The Quiet Place (her crate) where she couldn’t see me. She learned almost immediately to subvocalize her barks, to let out a breath with just enough vocal cord vibration that I wouldn’t QUIIIITE consider it a bark and move her further away from the food. It’s a sound like this: “Hrrrr. Hrrrr. Hhhrahhh.” I didn’t realize how odd this was until my aunt came over and said, “That dog hissed at me.” “Yes,” I said, “she does that.”
  • Boydog learned to do tricks by watching Girldog. I never taught him to sit. He learned by watching Girldog get a treat for sitting. Once, I told both dogs to sit at the same time, while I held a treat in each hand. When Girldog didn’t sit quick enough, Boydog put his paw on her butt and pushed her down.
  • I hung a bell on the door and taught Boydog to ring it when he wants to go out. Girldog sees no reason she should ring the bell, as it is beneath her dignity, and she can get her way by barking instead. Boydog, however, will ring the bell for Girldog when she lurks around by the door, although he has no interest in going outside himself. Girldog has made Boydog her personal slave in this matter.
  • Boydog rings the bell when he doesn’t need to go out but thinks I have been at my computer too long. By the time I get to the kitchen, he’s nowhere near the door, but hey mom, as long as you’re up, let’s play! He obviously does not believe I can see through this extremely clever ploy.
  • Girldog once climbed onto a sofa, crossed the back of it, leapt from the sofa to my desk chair, leapt from the chair to the desk, and knocked all my stuff off the desk. (I wasn’t there, but it was obvious from the trail of destruction what route she had taken.) Then she got down and proceeded to ignore the bag of corn chips she’d encountered and focus her attention on biting my phone charger in half, chewing up a USB memory stick, and eating a pen. I still have no idea how she could be so smart and so dumb at the same time.
  • Boydog will chase a laser pointer (not uncommon for dogs introduced to them as puppies! Pro tip) but only when Girldog is not around, because she hates it for some reason and will tackle him for it. Girldog also likes to be outside while I want to be in, and Boydog prefers to have us both inside. Boydog will lead me to the laser pointer, pester me until I get it down, and then run around chasing the laser and barking madly. No matter how stubborn Girldog has been about staying outside, she wants to know what he’s barking at and immediately comes inside. (It is always the laser pointer he’s barking at, Girldog. Always.)
  • There is a chair in my bedroom that I cannot sit on. The dogs take turns sleeping on it, depending on who gets there first. The only hard and fast rule is that if the human sits on the chair, they will both lose their cool. The chair is for dogs only. I have not even tried to sit on the chair for about six months now.

I suspect I’ll be adding more of these as the three of us continue to train each other.

have some fic recs!

these are mostly s1-3 but i’m starting to add s4-6! i have them divided by season & arcs. and these are mostly finished fics with a very rare few exceptions (bc i have a hard time keeping up with wips in sorry!) i’ll be posting again when i have some more to add :) *these are in no particular order just as i happen to read them*

and always please leave a nice comment/review!!

@littlereddove bc i told you i’d give you older fics ! so here’s a mix.

Can we all just take a second to think about the fact that this is the first time people have stuck around Dirk long enough for him to see the fallout of their interaction with him? 

We can assume that Dirk has worked with people before, and that he’s had other cases, but Todd and Farah are the first people to actually stick around afterwards. And then Todd drops this bombshell about his pararibulitis and Amanda being missing, and Farah is also obviously not okay, so Dirk’s having to deal with the guilt that it’s all a result of their interaction with him, but also the realisation that he’s probably left a similar trail of destruction behind him throughout his career as a ‘detective’

“Yes of course!” He screamed back at you.

“Fine!” You took a deep breath before continuing to hurl things at Sherlock while screaming, “Taxes! Bills! Funerals! Work! Relationships! Sex! Cooking! Death! Am I adult NOW SHERLOCK?”

He sighed, dodging back and forth against the things you threw, wincing as some of them smashed against the wall behind him.

“(Y/n), for god’s sake!” He yelled, raising an arm to cover his face as he strode across the apartment to reach you.

Angry tears streamed down your cheeks, “No.” You sobbed.

“No.” You whispered as he got closer, outstretching his arms. And then you gave up, collapsing into his arms with a sob, the tears flowing freely as he held you. The two of you sunk to the floor, where he held you silently as you cowered against his chest. Everything you’d thrown lay around you as a trail of destruction, a tribute to your rage. Neither of you moved, you stayed there still as a statue, the only movement the tears rolling down your cheeks.

“What the bloody hell happened!?” Asked a elderly female voice in shock from the doorway. 

“Not now, Mrs Hudson.” Sherlock said with an unusual softness, “(Y/n) and I just had a bit of a fight, I’ll tidy it up later.”

“Alright.” 

You heard her leave and Sherlock continued to hold you until you were ready to talk. Even if that was hours.

Inktober 22: TRAIL


Elizabeth 3rd leaving behind a trail of destruction her pawn prints at Jaehee’s office. Or just call it: “Jaehee’s suffering part 2″. I’m sorry Baehee, but there are just so many silly situations coming to my mind (sorry sorry sorry).

ok but A Trail of Destruction by starsthatburn is 240k words, which is roughly 400 pages if it were a physical book

i started it yesterday afternoon, and i’m six chapters away from the end

all of that to say, one of the best fics i’ve read in a long time; i highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good swan queen fic

Her name alone invokes awe. Faith. A set of principles or beliefs upon which you’re willing to devote your life. The dark slayer. A lethal combination of beauty, power, and death. For years and years, or - to be more accurate - months, Faith fought on the side of good, terrorizing the evil community. But like so many tragic heroes, Faith was seduced by the lure of the dark side. She wrapped evil around her like a large, evil Mexican serape. She became a cold-blooded killer. Nobody was immune to her trail of destruction. Not friends, not family.

Unsurprisingly, I have more elf thoughts

Lots of people ragged on Tolkien on my last post, but Tolkien knew exactly what he was doing. His elves as of Lord of the Rings weren’t staid and serious by nature, but because they were very old in a young world. Further back, in the Silmarillion, they spend literally all their time just messing stuff up and feuding with each other and making Very Bad Choices for the sake of honor or pride or promise. And it’s a disaster. You can’t have that many Chaotic aligned, high maintenance personalities with superior magical power in the same vicinity before things break bad and you end up with events with names like The First Kinslaying. 

It took literal ages before Tolkien’s elves settled down and thinned themselves out enough and figured out how to maybe not wreck havoc and that maybe being boring and living nice, quiet, restrained lives was better for everyone. (Well, relatively nice and quiet and restrained. There’s still the Mirkwood elves.) Galadriel could be beautiful and terrible but she won’t because she knows how that ends. 

My guess would be that D&D elves did much the same thing, spent a while as just a disaster of a species before realizing that wasn’t a great long term plan as the world got more advanced around them, so they basically back-engineered themselves a civilization designed to civilize the wild. Ceremonies, traditions, exercises in patience, anything to bore the impulsivity out of them and impress on young elves the benefits of functioning as a member of society rather than an overdramatic lone operator. It’s better to be thought of as a species of high-minded, long-winded scholars than a bunch of volatile wildcards. Nobody needs tons of centuries old, incredibly magical, unpredictable high strung elves wandering around making trouble. One or two might add some spice to life. Gaggles of them fight and leave a trail of destruction, shiny things, and overdone poetry. 

But sometimes you get isolated individuals, or forest elf communities out on the edges of things who are a little more eccentric, who don’t get the full dose of Boring to tone them down. Sometimes there’s young elves who are raised in unstable situations far from home, or half elves with an elvish temperament but not an elvish enough upbringing. Once in a while an elf just decides they are really tired of leaves and flowers and really want to try lighting everything on fire and starting a blood feud for giggles. Sometimes the instinct to get all folkloric wins out over all the careful training in restraint. 

Taako and Lup had a disjointed childhood, then ran away from home and lived with assorted strangers, they’ve got nothing except their own feelings about how elves should act to run off of, and it’s not like they’re super concerned about acting proper. Sloane ended up as an illegal street racer and thief, which doesn’t suggest she had a super reliable childhood sitch either, it makes sense she might lean into some of that same basic groundwell of elvish instinct. Lydia and Edward clearly had some stuff going on with the death magic and the dead brother and the cult, they’re potential bad breaks in the system also. Jenkins is an outlier, since he seems pretty straight-laced, but maybe he just woke up one morning and really wanted to get his murder and theft on. It happens. 

Basically I do think the TAZ take on elves is a result of individuals from a fairly straitlaced background hearing Galadriel’s whole “…beautiful and terrible as the Morning and Night…” quote and going, “Yeah, sure, that sounds pretty sweet. Well we’re at it I would also like to bedazzle everything, and maybe take some snacks from the nearest 7/11. No laws, no limits, you know?”

A Positive Sign // Mark Tuan (M)

Originally posted by marktuon

Pairing: Mark x Reader

Genre: Sad // Smut // Fluff

Summary//Request: Anonymous said: Mark smut/fluff where the reader and him are trying to get pregnant after having a lot of conception issues?

A/N: This scenario contains smut and talks about conception problems - but it has a happy ending, I promise :D


As Mark gently trailed his soft lips across the naked skin of your chest, you held your breath tight in your lungs. Your entire body was tense underneath him, worry clouding your mind – making you unable to enjoy the pleasure laid upon you by beautiful husband who was about to make love to you.

For the past year and a half since you had both tied the knot, since you became Mrs. (Y/N) Tuan, you and Mark had planned to get busy – as in; you had both planned on starting a family. The night of your honeymoon was magical, as was your wedding. You had dreamt of your wedding day since you were a child, and Mark made sure that every single one of your wishes were granted – down to the very last detail. You had it all; the dress, the venue, the cake, the guests and the 1 month vacation to a beautiful, private island for just the two of you. Mark had given you his all on the eve of your honeymoon – both of you making love with the full intent of you getting pregnant and beginning your perfect family.

Yes, Mark had given you everything you could have ever wished for. But upon seeing that after many nights of hot, pleasurable and love filled sex that you just couldn’t seem to get pregnant; it made you think that you couldn’t give him the one thing you both wanted the most – a family.

i’m still alive but i’m barely breathing

a post episode ficlet. robert stands outside the mill, and wonders where in the world he’s welcome. 

The click of the front door behind him felt like a finality.

Just go, Robert.

If he tried hard enough, Robert could still feel the familiar press of Aaron’s lips against his cheek, remember the happier times it had happened, Aaron’s mouth sticky with toast crumbs and a cheeky grin in place as he planted one on Robert, halfway out the door and late for work.

Or those times when they’d lie in bed, late at night, Aaron’s nose pressed to his cheek, lips murmuring against Robert’s face, quiet, calm, reassuring, home.

Robert closed his eyes, focusing on the faint memory of how Aaron’s lips had felt against his face, how his beard had grazed against Robert’s skin (something he always grumbled about every single time it caused a rash on his overly sensitive skin), could pretend like his entire life hadn’t just crumbled in around him.

Just go, Robert.

W h e r e.

Where was he supposed to go now?

Robert Sugden burnt bridges. He left a trail of destruction behind wherever he went in life, and so it wasn’t as though he had an old friend to turn to, didn’t even have a parent who could take him in and scold him for being so stupid, didn’t have a brother to drown his sorrows with.

He could get in his car and drive, he supposed. Dan did say they’d have the windscreen fixed by the end of the day, and he could just, get in his car, and go - drive away from Emmerdale, drive away from everything that had gone so wrong. It had worked before, after all - he’d driven away from the only home he’d ever known, and he’d built a life for himself.

But something had brought him back, in the end, just like something always would draw him home to Emmerdale.

More like someone.

Robert was never going to stop feeling that all consuming, absolute love he had for Aaron. The things he’d done just to have Aaron, just to feel his lips against his own, feel the love the poured from every inch of Aaron, love so easily and freely given, even when Robert hadn’t deserved any of it.

Robert couldn’t forget that, couldn’t walk away from the greatest love he’d ever known.

But he was nothing, without Aaron. No one, nothing, had nowhere to go, nowhere else he wanted to be except with Aaron, whether that was in the Mill, in the pub, sitting in silence, anything.

He’d take five more minutes, just five more minutes to drink in his husband, memorise every inch of him before it was too late and -

“Robert, mate?”

Robert opened his eyes, the world feeling overly bright as he blinked, Adam coming into view. “It’s over,” he admitted hoarsely, not really caring if Adam saw him in a state. Adam had seen him look worse, had seen him on the upstairs landing of Victoria’s cottage, dripping sweat and post a nightmare, reliving the moment he’d been shot over and over and over and over and over and over and over -

“I know,” Adam’s voice cut through Robert’s thoughts, a look of genuine sympathy on his face. “I’ll look after him, I promise ya.”
