you have been reading this comic for a while now

Hello friends! Are you all jazzed-up on Wonder Woman now that the DCU finally has a good movie? That’s great! Me too! But it doesn’t have to end there! Wonder Woman has a long history of great comic books that have long been overlooked my mainstream nerd culture!

While plenty of us have read foundational DC books like Batman: Year One, All-Star Superman, or Watchmen, Wondie has plenty of books that are just as central to her character as well! The above image is a general recommended reading list, and I certainly haven’t read all of them, but I can give a few recommendations on the ones I have!

Wonder Woman, by George Perez

This is pretty much your foundational modern Wonder Woman. Nearly everything about the character as she is today draws from this sensational run. It’s widely regarded among Wondie fans as one of the most quintessential runs in the character’s history. If you want to wholly *GET* Wonder Woman, this is a fantastic place to start.

Wonder Woman by Gail Simone

What can I say about Gail Simone that hasn’t already been said? Deadpool, Batgirl, Secret Six, Birds of Prey, the woman just has so many legendary comic book runs. And her run on Wonder Woman is no different. She wasn’t on the book for a super long time, but her run is one of the best!

Wonder Woman by Brian Azzarello

This one I understand is a bit polarizing among some on Tumblr. I get that there’s a number of people who don’t like the changes Azzarello made to the amazonian culture, specifically how they deal with male outsiders and male children. However, consider that characters are not interesting without flaws, and seeing for once a definite black spot on the seemingly-perfect Amazons was pretty interesting!

In addition, the book has fantastic art style, and does a lot to re-imagine the greek gods in a modern, almost horror-esque way. This run’s take on Wondie is that of a warrior goddess, so if you want a Diana that’s ready to throw down, this is the book for you!

Wonder Woman: Hiketeia by Greg Rucka

Wonder Woman has taken a sworn oath to protect a young girl! But when she finds out that this girl has murdered her sister’s killer, this puts her at odds with Batman, who is determined that the girl face trial! A modern greek tragedy penned by the masterful Greg Rucka, and an absolutely fantastic one-shot graphic novel!

JLA: A League of One by Christopher Moeller

An unstoppable dragon has awoken from its slumber! An amazonian seer has predicted that it will DESTROY the Justice League! To prevent her friends from dying, Wonder Woman must face the dragon ALONE! Even if it means fighting her friends to stop them from helping her!

Wonder Woman: Odyssey by J. Michael Straczynski

A pseudo-elseworlds story about an amnesiac Wonder Woman rediscovering her place in the world and her destiny. Featuring all-star talent, a gripping suspense story, and my personal favorite Wonder Woman costume ever. 

Wonder Woman by Bill Messner-Loebs

Hey, did you know that for a while Wonder Woman was a space pirate? This run is fucking nuts and I love every page of it. If you want a run where some guys are just trying to tell compelling and INCREDIBLY varied Wonder Woman adventures, give this one a shot!

Wonder Woman: by Greg Rucka

There is a current Wonder Woman ongoing! It’s by Greg Rucka, who has previously done great work with the character. It’s called Wonder Woman: The Lies. Full disclosure, I haven’t read any of this. But if you want a Wonder Woman comic that’s currently ongoing, just pick up Volume 1 and start from there. There’s currently three books out, so there’s plenty of reading material. 

Final Thoughts

Really, anything in the guide I posted first is a good read. Comics are an incredibly small medium, and need all the sales they can get. If you’ve seen the movie and you’re hungry for more, there’s a LOT of material. The character’s been around for over 70 years at this point. So please, head down to your local comic shop and pick up some Wonder Woman! Diana believes in you, and I do too!

HeL. Lo. 

It feels like I have been away for a long time. But you are still here, and every so often people leave messages or notes or things in the tags on CatFoxWolf posts that hurt in such a good way it feels like my heart has folded in half like birthday card. I remain entirely useless at replying to these things but they mean an awful lot to me. 

When I started drawing Lost, the current CatFoxWolf story, I had no intention of taking so long. But life interferes with one’s plans; sometimes sneakily, and sometimes by bursting through the metaphorical door, doing high kicks and jazz hands. I leave it to you to imagine what might have derailed or distracted me. I am 97% certain that the primary reason that people have been so lovely towards me and so kind about the comic is that both I and the comic tend towards an ambiguity that permits them to feel or imagine whatever they like. The truth is that I have been so extraordinarily lucky to find a readership amongst such generous, earnest, loving, creative & funny people that I cannot possibly deserve it. 

I have been gradually posting new pages here and there and Lost is very nearly finished (for now). After that I think I will try going back to stand-alone strips and things for a while. 

All this is just to say if you’re reading this, thank you. It’s been a strange couple of years.

So, like. How’ve you been? 

The Seven Stages of Canon Alteration

1. Anger. 

Wow this all fucking sucked, I think I need to rewrite it because the actual canon of the show/comic/book/movie ruined everything

2. Research. 

Rewatching/reading over and over again. Getting obsessive over it. Really obsessive. I watched the scene 45 times but did this character really react that way or have I been dissociating this entire time?

3. Planning. 

okay I think I know the timeline perfectly now let’s get to writing

4. Progression. 

let me plug my rewrites in while still following the canon timeline, just you know, explaining shit better right?

5. Derailment. 

well there’s no way I can explain that reaction/scene/etc away so um maybe I’ll try to tweak the timeline just a little. Just a bit. I won’t go too far off base or else it’ll just get weird.

6. Self-reassurance. 

Well, it got weird and I may have lost control for a bit but I think I can bring it back without it getting too wanky and self-righteous and OOC

7. And finally, Acceptance. 

This is my world now. The actual writers can no longer be trusted with their creations and so I, as a responsible writer, have decided to take custody of all characters. Look at me. I’m the captain now.

fantasizing-in-code  asked:

Do you have a Masterlist? :0 so many comics to read

I do, actually! I can’t link it to you right now because I’m on mobile at the moment, but if you’re on a computer then under the banner at the top of the blog there’s a link to the Story Archive page which lists all the comics going on at once, with a link to each. The Five Nights at Fatal’s event isn’t up there yet but it will be when I have the time!

If you’re on mobile then I don’t have a mobile-friendly archive just yet. I’m sorry about that! I’ve been saying it for a while now but I’m going to get that together hopefully soon!

3K+ Followers!!!!


I would like to say hi to you all :D And thank you for following and supporting me. It really means a lot, for so many reasons my words cannot convey at the moment. But thank you, so, so much. I might throw ‘thank you’ a little bit too much but what do you say to the people who make you inspired? I’m pretty sure all I could say and will say will be thank you.

So thank you.

Special thanks for the people who send me little messages and all. Every time I read one, there’s a stupid smile on my face and I just want to launch myself out of space just to hug the moon. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!

Know that every new peep on the street here following my little blog is always welcome to drop in :D And I’m sure I’ll make art, do doodles, create comics, and share my ideas because it’s what makes me happy. And it makes me happier to see you guys having a smile because of it.

I’m sorry I haven’t been here for a while. Mid-Terms happened and now it’s on the transition to Finals period, and well, school. Thank you for understanding my plight ahaaaaaa

(This community is really, really awesome. I still can’t believe I’m part of it.)

anonymous asked:

do you any recommendations for stuff where they actually portray Superman as a citizen of the world? I want to read something more uplifting 😞


“But for that minute – for the first time in my life – I felt like a citizen of the world instead of an unwelcome grunt from the States. The world cried when Superman died…and I cried with them.” - Action Comics #800 (omg i love this issue so much i cry everytime)

Action Comics #810 - Clark flies around the world fulfilling the wish of people who sent him letters! (Greenland, Brazil, China, etc…)

Action Comics #900 - the issue where Clark renounced his US citizenship :D

Superman vol 1 #674 - honestly if you want wholesome Superfam content, just read Superman vol 1, Kurt Busiek and James Robinson’s run (Superman Annual #13 has the whole fam (Clark, Lois, Chris, Kara, Pa and Ma) went on a picnic on another planet!!! 

The world building they put on their run is just beautiful and I love the way they explore more of Clark’s alien heritage *wipe tears*

That’s all i can think of for now as it’s been a while since i read all the old stuffs…but i guess i have to revisit them soon at this point XD 

anonymous asked:

post/159918431327/more-team-gai-bc-im-deeply-attached-to-them whats up witht he nazi symbol on one of the characters?

I think i need to clear up some things because for some reason this isnt public knowledge? 

Taken from wikipedia:
The Swastika (also known outside the Indian subcontinent as the Hakenkreuz, gammadion cross, cross cramponnée, croix gammée, fylfot, or tetraskelion) (as a character 卐 or 卍) is an ancient religious symbol originating from the Indian subcontinent, that generally takes the form of an equilateral cross with four legs each bent at 90 degrees.[1][2] It is considered to be a sacred and auspicious symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism and dates back at least 11,000 years

Im also gonna put a link to the wikipage, so that you guys can be more informed:

Taken from

The symbol, as most of you likely already know, has been around for thousands of years, and out of those thousands of years, for only roughly 70 or 80 has it been associated with anything negative. It’s also oriented a bit differently. The Nazi version usually sits in a diamond shape, while the manji version is a square. Some will also say they face opposite directions, but that’s not altogether true: Japanese Buddhism has both a right-facing and left-facing manji.

and obviously you and some of the people who commented didnt read the manga so im gonna put a page from the manga right here. 

Now if your question is why would neji have that symbol on his forehead then maybe you should actually watch the show or read the comic. 

please make sure you are well informed and do your research first before saying anything regrettable, you’re just shaming yourself for not knowing a well known fact. 


Can we just talk about how powerful this scene is? 

There are no words needed. Each panel shows us how their relationship was with each other. Silence often offers us a more powerful understanding than a thousand words ever could. Ursa knew she never showed her daughter how much she loved her. You can see the love and affection on her face for her high strung little girl… as well as regret and worry. Even in the last panel and the way she looks back…she was hesitant. She did not want to leave Azula, knowing how much Ozai influenced her at such a young age…she even chose to see her daughter first before Zuko. Maybe she had planned on saying something to Azula…but the words got lost on her tongue. What could she say? Instead she opted to give her a kiss on her cheek as a sign of love instead, praying she would be safe.

If only Azula knew…

I have a lot of Azula Feels now…excuse me while I go cry in a corner.

anonymous asked:

I just saw your post on Oswald being an equestrian, and not only do I now see that as being completely possible and most likely true, it reminded me of something that I've been mulling on for a while: Jon as a horseback rider. He shows up with a horse a couple times in the comics, and to me it makes a lot of sense considering his Scarecrow: Year One origin story. What are your thoughts, if any, on this idea? Have you considered it yourself? Thanks for reading!

I’ve always considered many of Jon’s talents born of necessity (as opposed to formal training), but Jon is definitely an accomplished rider. Growing up on a farm, Jon would’ve had to learn to be of any use, and having been bucked off at an early age, riding was somewhat scary to him which only made him want to do it more.

Of course, using the horse for crimes was Scarecrow’s idea because really it only served a dramatic purpose. The Horse and the Rider LOOKS scary, but it’s not practical at all (much like the straw-in-the-suit phase that didn’t last long). A few easy catches from Batman saw the end of the horse being used (also, Jonathan, who likes animals far more than humans, didn’t like the danger the horse was being put in).

Jonathan still rides whenever he goes home. 

Useless Fact: Arlo Tully (an old family friend) minds Crane’s horses while he’s away (which is, sadly, a great deal of time)

voltron comic dub auditions!

so i’ve been thinking about doing these for a while, but it only occurred to me now that i could make a tumblr post promoing it, haha. anyway, what i’m doing sound exactly like it does on the tin: voltron comic dubs! 

have you ever seen a voltron comic and thought: “oh man i’d love to hear that actually read out by the voice actors”? then this isn’t directly for you, bUT if you’re one of the people who would want to voice act that yourself, then this is for you!


  • send me a tumblr message with an mp3 file on a hosting site of your choice with your lines for whoever you want to dub from here and  here and if you’re doing allura, from here. it’s important that you do both so i can get a feel for how close you can get to canon voices but also how you would interpret your character’s inflections, emphasis, etc. 
  • fill out this form: (x)
  • that’s pretty much it


  • please, no antis! this is going to be an all inclusive group, and if any ships make you uncomfortable, then it’s probably best for you to not audition bc we might be doing comics with ships that youre uncomfortable with
  • if you can, please reblog this post so i can reach out to more people! i’d really appreciate it if you did
  • even if you don’t think you’re not good enough to audition, try anyway! it never hurts to try :3
  • have fun!! no matter what, i think this is the most important part of this whole shebang


  • it’s okay if we have multiple voice actors for one character! in fact, this is what i’m hoping to be able to have to lessen the workload for some of the voice actors
  • there’s nothing i wouldn’t do shipwise, but i have a very heavy klance bias, so there’ll probably be a lot of klance if the va’s also want it. 
  • honestly, all that’s going to be dubbed will rely on what the va’s want.
  • i’m a pretty capable editor myself, so i don’t need an editor, but it’d be nice to have another one to help me
  • if you need/want examples of comic dubs, i suggest you check out these videos: (x) (x)
  • auditions will end mid may! I don’t really have a set date right now; it all depends on how many auditions i get before then. after that i’ll have a week grace period/week to look over auditions and choose people

Good luck!

edit: added canon line auditions whoops


Evidence that this is not Syaoran: BUILDING. 

Including but not limited to: hurting the nice murder dogs, looking utterly bored while he does it, and also whatever is happening in that first panel. 

He looks like he’s doing one of those pin up poses that comic book artists put women into whenever they’re trying to convince me never to read a comic book again in my life. You know the ones. 

But also, like. PHYSICALLY, how are you doing that, Syaoran? HOW?


Big change

Hey guys, I just wanted to address some things so you guys can feel updated on some “changes” and comments I’d like to make on my comics.

First, I would like to say thank you all for 3k followers! I actually feel guilty getting this many because Tumblr is the least used social media where I post comics besides imgur and Reddit (which I have slowly drifted away from) so I’m going to try and step up my game with posting and being more active on tumblr. The two social medias I use are twitter (username is @blumod_), where I constantly update on status of comics, do art or fan art, or just do funny tweets, and my second most used social media is iFunny where every single comic I’ve made has been posted unlike tumblr since I originated from iFunny, so if you want to see those, go to to read the rest.

Second thing is kinda major; I’m changing my artstyle.

Now this one I have been wanting to talk about for a while. My original artstyle of poorly drawn marshmallow people is very unoriginal. A lot of other users can pull it off and still seem original such as TheOdd1sout, SeaRabbit, 8BitLiam, and many more. But I want an art style I can call mine and not feel guilty of thinking it’s a copy and paste of some one else’s idea. I make comics, and I want to make sure my jokes are 100% original, and I want to do the same to my artstyle, which is what I’ve done.

Anyways, sorry for the long rant but that’s my situation. Thank you to all who cared to read that. You guys are the best! :)

You should be Reading the comic 7″Kara

7″Kara is a wonderful comic about Tiny people living alongside humans and is for all ages! It’s all online! So go read it! 

It’s hand drawn and painted with watercolor!!! Have a look: 

(these are photos I took from my copy of volume 1, and chosen to show off the beauty of the comic without giving you whole pages because you should go read and reblog it from the source, I’m not about to re-post someone’s art!) 

Yesterday I had the amazing honor of meeting @nattosoup, creator of the comic @7inchkara at the Alternative Press Expo! And she has been trying to find other fans of tiny people for a while now!

Well we are right here, and we should welcome her and her comic with open arms!

Hey. I've been reading your comic for a while now, and following you on twitter & here and whatnot, and I am the opposite of schadenfreude with how you've been doing lately. You seem happy, you have a cool guy in your life, and I want nothing but the best for you. Keep up the great comic & have a blast.

THANK YOU!!! im so happy every day that its foreign and unusual. ive been going to therapy since the start of the year and its done wonders to help me. and literally this week i got the closure ive been lacking on something for years. its been a good time. i worry that it is obnoxious to people who arent me but its still a really new and exciting feeling to know you can fall in love again.

anonymous asked:

With the cancellation announcement, has that been the final nail in the coffin for the chances of you continuing this blog?

Oh no, I still plan on coming back! It’s a very, very small consolation for the bad news we got today, but the silver lining here is that I now have a finite number of comics to read for this blog. Which makes reading all of them a somewhat less daunting task

I’m just having a hard time juggling life and gamedev stuff and art commissions and haven’t felt like setting aside time for this blog in a while. But it’s not dead. I might try to come back soon. We’ll see. Going back to joking about the old comics might be a nice way to say goodbye. But I’m working on a demo and a short tie-in comic of my own for said game, and that takes higher priority

Hell, Mania comes out in less than a month. If I’m not back by then, there’s a decent chance that’ll get me hyped enough to wanna talk Sonic on here

anonymous asked:

hey not to be That Person but. i'm trying to get into dc comics but i dont understand the whole rebirth thing and infinite crisis or its context and im feeling so ! anxiety over it so. can u recommend a starting point so i can have some structure in my life again

unless things have progressed monstrously in the past month i haven’t caught up and infinite crisis is somehow directly connected to rebirth now, then the following answer is bull, so write it off. if things are still the same, you’re still free to write everything i say off because i usually don’t know what i’m doing. i’m here for the memes

the short answer is: read every big event DC has ever published up until the year of our lord 2016. no? no? alright, i’m gonna take you by the hand and try to explain some things about DC. seeing i don’t know the level of your comics knowledge, there is really no short answer if you want to understand some basics so this is going to get long, but still shorter than actually reading everything. i have also consumed an ungodly amount of carbs this evening, all the bread in me will get us through this

when comic companies reach a certain point with their comics that can’t progress their storytelling no matter what techniques they employ (we, in the mortal realm, call this screwing up beyond belief), we have these big events that occur throughout every title currently published, that change/erase, affect and influence the entire comics universe. the very first time DC did it was because they realized all the issues got too confusing for the new readers and the dollas didn’t holla when younglings had no reason to buy stuff they didn’t understand, and that’s how in 1986 they rebooted the DC universe for the very first time with Crisis on Infinite Earths. CoIE basically took this idea of a “multiverse”, an infinite possibility of worlds, stories, and ideas existing concurrently but not necessarily affecting each other up until then, and destroyed it. bye, felicia. everything was unified into one neat bundle and due to this compression, certain characters had to die, others got completely retconned (especially superman), and others kept existing only in a pocket universe (like superboy). generally speaking, the characterizations of all the characters after Crisis on Infinite Earths is what’s commonly considered canon (pre-ColE batman didn’t brood 24/7, for shame)

in the following two decades after ColE, things got so convoluted and messed up that we ended up having an incredible number of inconsistencies even though the goal was to eliminate them in the first place. we had like… doubles of the same heroes that had made it into the ColE universe from the pre-ColE/silver age universe running about like nobody’s business? because why the fuck not, i guess. thus DC had to reboot again… and then again… and then once more… and then they chilled for a bit but that didn’t really matter much because a few things like superboy-prime getting angry and punching a literal hole through continuity happened. through trial and many errors, we get to the point Flashpoint happens, an event that rebooted DC again, and gave us the New 52

the New 52 started every hero’s title from #1 once more. a new start where readers wouldn’t have to know 60something years worth of comics to understand what’s going on. only that that didn’t happen because heroes like batman and green lantern still held their pre-Flashpoint stories/memories/lives, so if you wanted to follow them, you had to have read that period between ColE and Flashpoint i just explained. due to the retcon, certain heroes died/got erased similarly to how people got offed in Crisis on Infinite Earths and that, coupled with storylines that progressively made less and less sense, resulted in the New 52 drawing the short stick and ending a few months ago, with Rebirth following in its steps

Rebirth, however, isn’t a reboot. it’s a direct continuation of the New 52, this time trying to fix things up. DC stopped trying to erase all their mistakes with reboots (not like they work anyway) and decided to find an excuse as to why the pre-flashpoint universe was morphed into the New 52, meaning everything that happened between ColE and Flashpoint is valid. it’s just that everyone forgot and… got… younger………. why? i’m not gonna explain that. it involves the watchmen and dr. big blue dick and we haven’t gotten a straight answer yet anyway

anyway, to finally answer your question about getting into current DC, here’s what i suggest:

  • have a basic grip on DC heroes. if you have absolutely no idea who is who, you’ll have to do some basic reading on your favorite heroes. here’s my reading guide for batman to get you started
  • after you know why batman is an occassional dick, jump directly into Rebirth. no N52 for you. there have been minimal if any references to the new 52 so far and since Rebirth is trying to get the DC universe back to it’s pre-flashpoint state, you don’t really need to know what happened in the n52
  • do, however, know that new 52 superman died after a series of bad writing and mishandling and our current superman is pre-flashpoint superman even though every other hero is their new 52 counterpart. pre-flashpoint clark made it into the new 52 universe after an event called Convergence, alongside a then pregnant lois lane, and didn’t make himself known up until new 52 clark died
  • interestingly, in infinite crisis pre-flashpoint clark met pre-crisis on infinite earths clark, similarly to how new 52 clark met pre-flashpoint clark now. dam? dam

i know a lot of the above makes zero sense right now but it’s in its most basic form you’ll find at this point. DC has A LONG ASS history of messed-up events and timelines so confusion will ensue even after you’ve been reading comics for a while. jump into Rebirth even if you feel you won’t understand a thing. we all started somewhere, we all still understand about half of what the writers want us to (they understand a third of their own works). try to have fun whatever you do and look up/ask about things you have no idea about. comics weren’t meant to be streamlined, or at least they never managed to be, so you will have gaps for a long time. final crisis what? zero hour who? hypertime not even once

just have fun? just have fun. nobody really understands. it’s okay

anonymous asked:

do you know of any kate bishop or fraction/aja clint barton fics???? or anything about peggy or the red room???? thank you so much!!!!!!!

Probably less than you’d like.  :(  If anyone has any recs, please do add them!

Previous rec posts here and here.

Kate appears in…

Clint, not all Fractionverse but have the Feel, if you know what I mean:

(Honestly, ‘Non, I’ve been wanting to write a Clint-centric Fractionverse fic for a while now, and I can’t right now because of commitments and also my comics are in boxes about to be shipped across the country, but if you send me some prompts and/or ideas and/or your favourite pairing or WHATEVER, I’ll give it a shot when I’m settled in Nova Scotia!!)

Our Sovereign Queen, Peggy Carter: 

I have a lot more fics that feature Peggy as a character, and a magnificent one (prince of the apple towns, cascades, the silver answer, etc etc), but they aren’t about her.  Has anyone written the Great Big Peggy Carter From War To War And After Novel?  AM I GONNA HAVE TO WRITE THAT ONE TOO??

i was talking to a friend about lesbian poets today. just briefly i mentioned the ones i’ve read–adrienne rich, marilyn hacker, audre lorde, sappho–and, inspired by a tumblr post, i then checked out a book by mary oliver. oliver was 70 when she lived through the death of a woman who had been her partner for more than 30 years. thinking about that, the timespans of these women’s lives, made me think a little bit about my personal history and my sexuality. i was going to make this a comic - and i still might, some day - but for now i just want to put it down in prose. thanks in advance for reading, if you do  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Keep reading

anonymous asked:

hey! do you know any batfam masterposts? like in which order to read everything (batman: year one, robin: year one etc..) :>

cracks knuckles
i’ve been putting this off for a while but now… let’s do this thing!
the problem is, there are so many batfam comics, so many batfam characters, and there’s also the problem of pre!52 vs. nu!52, so i’ve compiled as many masterposts as i can: some will offer you links, and others will leave you to find the comics on your own (and if you can’t find them, feel free to ask me! i have an extensive collection of links to various comics on various sites):

Batfam as a whole:

Bruce Wayne:

Kate Kane:

Barbara Gordon:

Dick Grayson:

Jason Todd:

Cassandra Cain:

Tim Drake:

Damian Wayne:

Stephanie Brown:

Helena Wayne/Helena Bertinelli: 

Obviously, I haven’t managed to get every character, but i do have the major ones (also, there are far more masterposts for some characters than there are for others :L)
and yes, it certainly does look overwhelming. my advice? pick a character, either one you like, or one at random, and read about them first. from there, it’s far easier to find stories and comics that will interest you!

(also, be warned that i haven’t looked at every masterpost here, so some may be less useful than others, and there will definitely be repeats)

Zimbits fic recs!

Long time, no fic recs from me…I am so ashamed! So I guess it’s been kind of obvious for a while now that I have become deeply immersed in the OMGCP fandom, and I am Zimbits trash for damn sure! So I decided that it was high time I did a rec post of some of my faves!

Okay! So this should give any of you stragglers a good start, If you haven’t read the comic yet, well, what are you waiting for??? Go immediately to @omgcheckplease and get started! All thanks and praise go to our goddess and creator @ngoziu​ for her many blessings. 

So, without further ado, I present the following:

Being In Motion by @marswithghosts 

This fic. THIS FIC. You know how we all have that one favorite fandom fic that we adore completely? The go-to fic to read when nothing’s going right, or everything’s going right, or you feel crummy, or you feel like a million bucks, or you deserve a treat for working so hard, or you have free time and wish to spend it in the best way possible? 

Well, this is that Zimbits fic for me. Incredibly sexy, fantastically funny, sweet enough to give you a sugar high, and an absolutely perfect build up between confident cam boy!Bitty and shy hockey pro!Jack. I would leave kudos on each paragraph if I could. It is just that good. And marswithghosts is incredibly lovely to boot (shhhhh…of course I tumblr stalked and followed her so I could cry daily over her magnificence…)

Drop it While It’s Hot by @esterbrook

Ok, this is another one that I think I can read over and over and smile like a goof each time. This one chronicles Jack’s visit to Bitty’s over the summer…but they haven’t kissed or gotten together yet. Expect a lovely slow build with lots of mutual pining that once they get down to business really sizzles! (and I’m not real sure why it won’t link her as a mention…Tumblr, why you gotta do what you do?)

Hold It All At Bay by @psocoptera

So anyone who has followed me through my fandom flails knows that I am an absolute sucker for soulmate!fic. This one is particularly lovely with soul bonds and knowing what your soulmate feels or is going through, slow build that works through angst and insecurities, there and back again, all to culminate in a gloriously sexy ending that will have tears of happiness streaming down your face while you smile so hard your face hurts.

Lift And Release and Reason To Cry by @audiaphilios

Again, those who know me also know that dom/sub is kind of my jam. These are two short stories–not related but both delightfully yummy–featuring sub!Jack and dom!Bitty and trust me, they are right up my alley. Mmmmm, yes, good. (and following audiaphilios has now got me low key shipping Kent and Tater, and omg what am I doing but I really think I like it???)

quite new a thing by @annundriel

Which of my favorite kinks will we hit now? Oh! Pretty boys in panties. That pretty much says it all, except I need to add that this story is hot enough to make your eyeballs melt and yeah, this is something I need more of in this fandom.

For all you Hamilton fiends out there, this fic is a delight where Jack and Shitty are headed for New York to see the show and invite Lardo and Bitty to go with them. Fun (and sexy) times had by all, and I am always here for pining!Jack. And if, like me, you are also here for jealous!Jack, check out You Never Said You Wouldn’t So Here I Am by the same author, where Bitty just wants to get over his crush on Jack, but Jack won’t let him. Bitty is hot, other boys notice, and Jack doesn’t want anyone noticing Bitty except for him. Delish!

Now that you know where the AO3 tag is, it’s time to check it out!
