*~cherik fic rec~*

so, to keep record of some things I’ve read, I decided to do a list, then I thought: why not make a fic rec of it?
it’s not in a favorite/rate/word count order, it’s very random, though I’ll include these infomations

when I say random, it’s because some of them are just 2k of porn with plot that you can read in 30 minutes before going to sleep and some are 100k+(or almost 100k) that will take days to finish

and I’m going to add more fanfics everytime I finish one

I LOVE EVERY SINGLE FANFICTION ON THIS LIST, OKAY

thank you to authors for the beautiful writing and for making me cry or roll on the ground or laugh out loud 
i love you all

they’re all cherik

Summary:
Erik is the grumpiest, most foul tempered worker at Stark industries. His grumpiness is the stuff of legends.
So it’s obviously the talk of the office when Erik is being made to go to the company party and he’s bringing his husband.

What they weren’t expecting was the confident, charming, adorable and unbelievably nice Charles that turns up on Erik’s arm. What they certainly weren’t expecting was how much Erik obviously adores his husband and how happy he is to let others see this.

Summary:
"Good God, Erik thought. The Prince of Wales is gay.”

Charles lives in the unceasing glare of the public spotlight, yet keeps his sexual orientation a closely held secret, afraid he could lose his throne and force his deeply troubled younger sister into a role that would crush her. Erik, journalist and world traveler, has been a loner most of his life; he has little patience for closet cases. But a chance meeting in Kenya brings these two opposites together and sets in motion a love affair that will challenge the British monarchy – and their most deeply held beliefs about who they are, and who they should be.

Summary:
(or you won’t be cummingtonite)

Charles is an internet celebrity who garners his fame from posting educational, in-depth videos about a different animal every week, though for some reason his viewers are always more interested in his sex life with his geologist husband, Erik, who happens to frown heavily upon all living things.

Except for Charles, of course, whom he’s missed these past couple days while attending a geologic convention–though considering the subject material of Charles’ newest video, he’s wishing he would’ve stayed away longer.

Summary:

Then the pizza man says it back. And Charles is pretty much smitten from there.

“I found that meetings with players who’d reached the same level of technology went as follows:

"Hello, are you friendly?”
“Depends. Is that a gun?”
“Yes. Is that a gun?”
“Yes.”
“Then I am friendly.”

Funny how many friendly people you meet when you’ve got a gun, isn’t it? It’s almost like the NRA were right all along.“ - Ben "Yahtzee” Croshaw: Zero Punctuation: Survival Special.

“Easy there, Love.” He tells her, lying a hand gentle on the arm closest to him and she doesn’t know if she’s shivering because she’s sick, or she’s dead, or if he’s just really pretty, but it’s a shiver all the same.

Squinting up at him, Y/N moves her other hand (though it requires some effort) anyways to pat at his, “I’m dead right?” She asks him seriously, sniffling, “Are you an angel?”

The little head start she had didn’t much matter because she slows on the stairs complaining about  "you rich people, and your fuckin’ 700 stairs, why don’t you just get an elevator for Christ’s sake?“ and Harry zeros up behind her, placing gentle hands on her hips and giving her nudges.

"You’ve got this, Darlin’ only twenty more to go!”

“Eat. My. Ass.” She punctuates with each step, but she doesn’t bat his hands away.

“Now, is that any way to talk to your boss?”

But I don’t think Ubisoft hates women, if for no other reason than because there’s no profit in doing so. And I don’t think Tomodachi Life hates gay people. It is at worst only trying to avoid complexity in a rather poorly thought-out way. There may be some who genuinely do hate you for your gender or race or sexual orientation (Finnish Hearthstone tournaments, maybe), and by all means hate them back, but when you cry hatred where none exists, you do nothing but weaken your position. You will persuade no-one to a cause by associating it with unfounded hysteria.

And besides, these arguments distract from the broader issues. Don’t hate Tomodachi Life for homophobia, hate it for being dull with no apparent purpose to its existence. Don’t hate the games industry for being sexist, hate it for being bloated, uncreative and dishonest. And don’t hate me for being a heterosexual white guy disparaging slacktivism, hate me for all those murders I’ve done.

“Don’t be dense Niall, of course he’s spotty about this one,” Liam interjects, “How is he supposed to advance in a relationship with someone who doesn’t speak?” He reaches for his second roll from the basket set in the middle of the table, “The most he knows about her is that she likes animal printed shorts, she has a cat, and knows how to bandage someone properly –”

“Not true,” Harry pouts, “I also know she likes lemonade.”

Nostalgia is based on the fallacious notion that things were better in the past. They weren’t. You were younger, more innocent, less exposed to negative news reports and with a child’s inbuilt sense of loyalty, and so you remember it more favorably than it was. Trends show that things have always been on a steady pattern of improvement, with regards to technology, awareness of societal issues, equality, and the reduction of crime and global conflict. There may be more reportage of unpleasantness nowadays, but that doesn’t mean there was less unpleasantness in the past, just that we now have access to wonderful technology that allows more information on unpleasantness to be spread around.
