wtf could possibly happen in that fic to have those tags

A big dedication to the jonsa fandom

This post is about my history with game of thrones and jonsa and how i realized that shipping jonsa and being part of the jonsa fandom became an important part of me. Pls, friends, remind that i'’ brazilian, so my first language isn’t english, so this post is doomed to have some mistakes.


So, basically, i’m a shipper since forever. I always liked shipping even when i didn’t say  the word “shipping” for it. I remember being seven years old and watching harry potter and loving ron and hermione with all of my heart and wanting them to be together (around the time prisoner of azkaban movie was released), and then i was nine and i would spend the whole day watching youtube videos with this couple from the soap opera, i mean, i seriously watched the whole soap opera every single day waiting for a moment with my couple. When i was twelve i started reading fan fiction and then i became a professional shipper, like if i’m watching or reading something, i will look for something to ship. 

I started watching game of thrones around the time season two after reading a post about Sansa character during this season and how she was made for being queen. I remember thinking “omg this girl is so beautiful and seems to be so amazing, i need to know more about her”. So, i already starting watching GOT loving sansa, even if she was a little bit annoying in the beginning (but i already had a great idea about her from the post i read in this blog that i loved with all my heart). 

Then i discovered got fandom actually hated sansa (like????) and people in brazil calls her “Sonsa” that is a pejorative way of saying “fool”. And i was so hurt and so protective of her like she was my best friend and nobody could speak ill of her when next to me (im still like that). I connect a lot with fictional characters, so i always feel protective of those i love. I'm hardcorely (i don’t even know if this word exists, but, if not, im inventing it) Sansa Stark defense squad. I love her and that’s it. 

So, i started watching got, i read the first book (only the first one) and it was time to start reading fanfiction. Back then, i didn’t ship Sansa with anyone, so i would just look for fics with her in fanfiction.net. Almost all the fics were SanSan (Sansa and Sandor) so i gave up reading fic for the time being. But from time to time, i would look in fan fiction.net to see if there was some interesting ship with sansa. And thats when i found “a winter's tale” from justadram back in 2013 and thats it, i became a jonsa shipper. I mean, i didn’t read any meta back then, but after this pic the idea of jon and sansa as ship warmed my heart. 

It wasn’t a ship that was a lot in my mind. I would sometimes look for a fan fiction and thats it. but then, came season five and when Ramsay said to sansa that jon was the new lord commander and the zoomed her face and the next scene was with jon and stannis (and if im right, it was stannis offering jon the north, i think, im not sure, feel free to correct me) and i remember thinking “does that mean that jon and sansa are going to meet”. And after Sans ran away all of my hopes wore on it. And then, came season six. And they met. And not only that, but they met and they had this great chemistry. I saw 6x04 and i thought to myself “is something happening there or it is just my shipper mind?” AND THEN I CAME TO TUMBLR AND I DISCOVERED THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE SAW SOMETHING THERE TOO AND I DISCOVERED THE JON X SANSA TAG AND I BECAME ADDICTED TO IT. 

i mean, seriously, i never had any hope for jonsa really happening or jon and sansa even meeting. And then, there was a possibility for them to meet? and not only did they meet but they also had chemistry? i mean, what are the odds of this happening???????? IS THIS REAL LIFE?

During season six, i would look almost everyday on the jonsa tag. Even after it finished i would read all the amazing fan fiction that started to appear and all the amazing metas (i live for metas, you can all create how many meta you guys want, i love them).

I’m so deep in jonsa that i can’t see game of thrones ending in a good way without then being endgame. And with the approaching of season seven and the beginning of season seven, i start coming a lot more in the jon x sansa tag and the jonsa tag and looking at blogs that sansa, i even started to make, very shyly, my own posts. i cannot lie, im addicted. 

And what i want to say with this post is “thank you, jonsa shippers”, thank you for keeping my hopes up, thank your for the amazing work you do, the fanfics, the metas, the posts, everything. 

I don’t only love shipping jonsa, i love being part of the jonsa fandom. I speak of it like we’re a club of very the coolest people around that meets to drink wine and play cards and you’re all close friends and when i say that i ship jonxsansa to someone and that person reacts like ‘wtf", im all like “we’re an amazing fandom, you should join us”  or when someone says “i don’t know how you have the courage to ship in game of thrones, everyone dies”, i say “but the good part of got isn’t the end, it’s following the history and trying to discover what is going to happen and being part of something”. Shipping jonsa is being part of something.

So, thanks my folks, lets keep with our shipping and with our comrade and our hopes. And thanks to the people who had the courage of reading this giant post that is basically me talking about myself. 

(if i said anything wrong, feel free to correct me)

here’s a Yoonmin fic rec no one asked for

I’ve been reading loads of these recently and I figured might as well share them with you guys :)

Wash Away My Loneliness by melecs

Words: 8.4k

Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin, 

Summary: There are a lot of car washes in the area that could do a better job, but not all of them have Park Jimin as an employee. So Yoongi keeps coming back.

Comment: This is literally one of the cutest things I’ve read in a while. Like Yoongi is typically quiet and broke, but he has to go get his car washed just to see Jimin and just pines and it’s just SO GOOD. Ugh. 

Experto Crede  by Error401

Words: 10k

Rating: Mature

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin, 

Series: Kickstart

Summary: “I-I don’t understand…” Jimin said, eyes watering as he focused on Yoongi. “I thought…you were going to kill me…in the bathroom.”

“Yeah, well so did I,” Yoongi said wryly, and Jimin flinched, trying to make himself impossibly smaller.

AKA It is a truth universally acknowledged, that Min Yoongi in possession of a heart will be in want of sleep.

Comment: Okay, Imma lay it down how it is. This is a dark series (in the sense that some bad stuff happens to Jimin) but the way that the author writes the characters is so good? Like, I’ve read plenty of fic where the character is a lone wolf and all of that but then they find their one and only and just turn into a completely different person? Well, it doesn’t happen here. Like, Yoongi is still his dark and twisty self, he just allows the ray of sunshine named Jimin in. Honestly, Jimin is also dark and twisty and it’s not all magically solved with romance, but it’s a set in the right directing and seriously, this series is great. There are more from the series which I’ve linked above (the parings are more Yoonmin, NamJin, and VHope). Before reading any of this series please do look at the tags so that you’re all aware of what is included in the fic. That being said, I really do think this is one of my favorites.

Do You Like Your Drafts Rough? by melecs

Words: 9.9k

Rating: Mature

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin, 

Series: Part 2 of Can I Get Your Dewey Decimal Number?

Summary: As a romance novelist, one would think Min Yoongi would have his own romantic life sorted out a little more than he actually did. Because instead of being in a happy, nauseating relationship, Yoongi was juggling both a one-sided crush and some punk who lived downstairs.

Comment: I love key found this by accident? Like, the first fic in the series is a cute little NamJin fic but then I saw that it had a part two and best believe I was all over that and let me tell you, I loved this, honestly it was super cute? And I’m always into the pining thing which Yoongi has down pat and just….. this is amazing and I’m out of words guys. Just go check it out. 

i’m fully operational (and at your disposal) by MauveTarte

Words: 8.5k

Rating: Explicit

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin

Summary: Five times Jimin helped someone, and one time Yoongi helps Jimin.

Comment: This was a hidden gem. I wasn’t expecting it to be the way it was but I loved it? It makes perfect sense to me that Jimin would be completely selfless helping everyone else, and there’s something about a jealous Yoongi that makes this whole thing a lot better. 

in your eyes (it’s where i wanna be)  by bonnia

Words: (5.5k

Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin

Summary: Jimin pauses with his marker inches away from the cup, because — is he really going to do this? Isn’t it a bit old-fashioned to write something flirty on a coffee cup? But no matter what his churning gut says about danger and what the hell are you doing do you want to die, this guy is — with no better way to put it — totally Jimin’s Type with a capital T.

(Or: Jimin accidentally starts a nickname war with the cute blonde who likes his coffee way too bitter.)

Comment: I’m 99.99% certain I added this to my previous fic rec but jfc this is great. I love this so much. Also! I read a fic where Yoongi is the barista and Jimin tells him outrageous names? I’m sure it’ll end up on this rec once I find it. They’re both pure gold. 

Paper Chase by SlimeQueen

Words: 9.3k

Rating: Explicit

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin

Summary: Jimin thought that joining a fraternity would be all parties and fun. He hadn’t anticipated falling for his cute roommate, Yoongi.

Comment: It’s the return of jealous Yoongi and I swear my life has been made so much better after reading this. Also, there’s a bit of praise kink and overstimulation going on and I am also here for that so, if you want something smutty and low key kinky, this is just for you. 

Love on Top by bazooka

Chapters: 11.4k

Rating: Explicit

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin

Summary: Jimin has the sense to ask for what he needs, and Yoongi has the sense to give it to him.

Yoonmin-centric prequel to Upside Down, Inside Out.

Comment: So ironically enough, I just realized that this was the prequel to the NamJin A/B/O fic that I love and I had to take a second to breathe because, wtf, how did I just notice that?! Ugh, anyway… As you could probably guess, this was an A/B/O fic but it was also a cannon fic. It takes place with famous BTS and all of that jazz just throw some A/B/O craziness in and you get this! I think, hands down, my favorite fics are cannon fics so I’m probably bias but I highly recommend it if you’re into either. 

Smoke and Mirrors by melecs

Words: 32.5k

Rating: Mature

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin, 

Summary: Jimin went out for a night-time walk a few times a week, maybe just to see the man smoking outside. His life was suddenly not so boring, his routine not so strict, and the friendship with his room-mate not so great.

Comment: I knew someone had to appreciate Jimin’s dancing aside from me. Although I’m still looking for a fic that includes Yoongi getting all hot and bothered due to Jimin’s flexibility (more importantly just watching him stretch) but this was pretty much Yoongi getting all hot and bothered with his dancing. I really loved this and how the author incorporated Yoongi’s piano/classical upbringing with Jimin’s dancing because let’s be honest, they could have been amazing (as we saw on Weekly Idol, am I right?) and it was so well done. Also hella side NamJin if that interests anyone! But! There are moments where Jimin questions his sexuality and the possibility of being gay (more for Namjoon though honestly, and blatant homophobia from Joon’s parents), for those who would like to be aware of that.

The author also has a kpop tumblr if you wanna go say hi

give me a sign by iwillalwaysbelieve

Words: 11.4k

Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin, 

Summary: Yoongi thinks the universe is a dick for a lot of reasons.

Reason #1: It gave a deaf person a soul-mark that revolves around speech.
Reason #2: Once he decided to hate his soulmate no matter what they were like, the universe gave him a really attractive soulmate.
Reason #3: Said soulmate is overly kind, no matter how much of a dick Yoongi is.
Reason #4: Yoongi is definitely fucked.

Comment: This was such a sweet fic! Jimin was the support system Yoongi didn’t know he needed as well as his soulmate so I’m so down. Like, soulmate fics are the bread to my butter. I love them. 

Yellow-Hoodie-Kid by FallingKookie

Words: 334

Rating: General Audiences

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin

Summary:

Prompt: “you give me a different fake name every time you come into starbucks and I just want to know your real name bc ur cute but here I am scrawling “batman” onto your stupid cappuccino”

Comment: Remember how I said there was a fic with Yoongi as the barista? THIS IS IT. I love how cute it is. I’m not gonna lie, I wish it could have been longer, but I understand that the author wanted a drabble so that’s what they did. Either way, 10/10 would recommend. 

The 100-Day Love Challenge by jeosheo

Words: 19.2k

Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Relationships: Min Yoongi | Suga/Park Jimin

Summary: For a variety show challenge, Jimin must tell Yoongi every day for 100 days that he loves him.

Let’s get this shit started.

Comment: Last, but most certainly not least, this is the fic I go back to every week. I shit you not. I’ve read this more times than I can count but literally, I cannot recommend this enough. I’m 100% certain it was on my other fic rec but seriously guys, this was the best thing ever. It was cute, and they stayed in character (which is important to me), and it was so well written holy fucking shit. I cannot describe how amazing this fic is. Just please, do me a favor and read it and show the author some love if you like it. They deserve it!


That’s it for today! I’ve tried to compile my favorites but if you think I missed one please do send it my way because I am always open to reading more!
