you must read that fic but read the warnings first

Been a busy day so only just getting to this! (It’s still Friday somewhere right?) 

I love the idea of @freshmeatfriday​ and definitely have some fics to rec!!! (I’ve also tried to include tumblr names where I know them - sorry if I’ve missed anyone!)

I’m usual really particular about how I lay things out but I’m on a timke crunch right now, so in no particular order here are some recs from me!! Fair warning a lot of these are going to come from Hannibal CreATEive challenges/fests as that’s mostly what I’ve been reading recently!

That said, my first rec is not from a fest it’s actually from a lovely writer who is a new writer in the fandom who contacted me about my Chiffack (Le Chiffre/Jack Ganzer) fic and then wrote one with the same pairing. And it is breathtakingly beautiful and deserves so many comments and kudos that it hurts. Seriously, you must read it! - 

Piano by SeeingRed ( @till-proven-guilty)
Casino Royale/Tempo - Le Chiffre/Jack 
Chiffre would smile just the tilt of his lips an edge of fang eyes watching in intrigue and Jack, Jack would grin baring his teeth bright like the morning dawn harsh as the rising sun notes played together triumph in the tune of A minor.

Another fantastic new writer who must be encouraged - 

First Serve by thymogenic ( @thymogenic)
Adam (2009)/Charlie Countryman (2013) Nigel (Charlie Countryman)/Adam Raki (Spacedogs)
Adam and Nigel have been together for a while now, living in domestic bliss in Adam’s Manhattan apartment. Recently, Nigel has taken to playing and coaching tennis again, reviving an old hobby from when he still had free time as a youngster and didn’t have to worry too much about offing troublesome competitors and maximizing profit margins in the Romanian drug trade. Leads to a bit of role play fun for the boys!

A new to me writer I am just getting to know and loving! -

Discoveries by DrJLecter 
Hannibal (TV)
The day was supposed to be normal and eventless. Just a little murder in between. Nothing special. Then things turned weird. (TENTACLE PORN!!!)

An astounding and emotional piece by a new writer, this stayed with me all day! -

The Last Temptation by stone_cold ( @stonecolddesign)
Hannibal (TV)
Will Graham teeters on the brink. (very risky gunplay)

Another writer I’m getting to know whose work I love and this one especially this amazing fic, because I am a sucker for different takes on the ABO genre! - 

New World  by supastag (findo) ( @supastag)
Adam (2009)/Charlie Countryman (2013) (spacedogs)
Nigel (Charlie Countryman)/Adam Raki
A charming omega meets a strong thoroughbred alpha. Since the omega is Nigel, guess who the alpha is…

This new writer needs encouragement because I really NEED more of this!!! -

Drunk? He most certainly was. by sofialhene
Hannibal (TV) (Vampire AU)
One night, after supper, Will and Hannibal are sitting in the living room in front of the fireplace, drinking wine. Apparently, the young man had not stopped after his second glass…

This one is so cute I wanted to go back and read it again immediately, what a fantastic pairing! - 

Grigg´s bad, awful, terrible, horrible week by The_owner ( @gio-hannigram)
The Jane Austen Book Club (2007)/Bleeder (1999) - Grigg Harris/Lenny (Bleeder)
Grigg showing us the meaning of the saying: “Every cloud has a silver lining.”
Lenny being a huge part of it, of course.
Also check out her The Seven Paths to Your Soulmate which is just wonderful!

I love so many by this wonderful writer but I think this is my favourite for its beautiful simplicity - so much action conveyed in only words - 

Loose Lips Save Ships by victorine ( @victorineb)
Hannibal (TV)
“You’re drunk.”
“You’re beautiful.”
“See? Drunk.”
“See? Beautiful.”

I have recently had the pleasure of getting to know this writer and was blown away when I realised she actually wrote one of my favourite ever Spacedog AU fics! - 

Merrie by Llewcie ( @llewcie)
Adam (2009)/Charlie Countryman (2013) - Nigel (Charlie Countryman)/Adam Raki (spacedogs) (Robin Hood AU)
Adam doesn’t reverse-engineer gunpowder for the fame and inevitable wealth– he does it because his father is sad. But it sets off a chain of events that forces him to relocate to London to teach the king’s alchemists how to make things explode. However, the king isn’t the only one who wants to make things explode. Robin of the Merries, an egalitarian group of pirates and thieves, sends her best mercenary to ‘rescue’ Adam from the king’s guard. Enter Nigel, a battle-hardened war veteran who is not a fucking baby sitter, thank you very fucking much.

This one is jointly by Llewcie and a couple of other amazing writers. Firuflies for one needs to write more please!! - 

Stages of Pursuit by FirufliesLlewcie and starkaryen ( @firuflies @starkaryen)
Hannibal (TV)
If Will kisses Hannibal when he’s drunk, he has plausible deniability, right? Even when it happens more than once?

Another writer I’ve been gettign to know recently who just has some wonderful stuff, especially Tristhad - 

No Maiden’s Hand in Mine by Chifuyu ( @staticraining)
King Arthur (2004) - Galahad/Tristan (Tristhad)
It’s said that only the purest and most virtuous of all knights would be able to retreive the Grail - a mystical object with the power to grant eternal youth, happiness and an endless supply of food.
Galahad doesn’t know why Merlin thinks he could be that legendary knight, since he’s neither pure nor virtuous, but if his survival hinges on playing the blushing virgin, then he will play the part to perfection.
Also check out her shorter and very sweet Tristhad -  Courtship

This has to be one of the absolute best S4 fics I have EVER read!! It is so completely satisfying and to me, feels incredibly real! I urge you all to read it! -

Faded Fantasy by Phenobarbital  ( @phenobarbitalfiction)
Hannibal (TV)
Hannibal navigates his way through Will’s heterosexuality…

Another writer I’ve been enjoying getting to know and she is just the sweetest, and this fic is just lovely! -

A Guide to Murdering with Your Serial Killer Boyfriend by FauxFidele ( @hannimeow)
Hannibal (TV)
Hannibal has been acting a bit peculiar lately. Long periods of brooding and silence, giving him the cold shoulder, has left Will at a loss. When Hannibal presents him with tickets to the opera, Will recognizes the opportunity and devises a plan to draw him out of his despondency, by whatever means necessary.
As the evening unfolds, both men are surprised to find that things do not always pan out as they had imagined.

So far absolutely loving this new writer’s fic and can’t wait for more!! - 

About Naiads, Mermen and Their Interpersonal Skills by Vegan_Cannibal (Consulting_Cannibal) 
Hannibal (TV) (Merpeople AU)
or Why Will Thought Trying to Help Was a Good Idea.
For a merman trying to pass as human, Will finds himself constantly involved in the Underwater’s disputes. This time, thought, his - lack - of personal skills lands him in a rather complicated - and multi-limbed - mess.

This random meta fic for JustFuckMeUp is genius - 

You Insisted by Lunarwench ( @lunarwench)
Hannibal (TV)
A short piece of crack fic where Hannibal and Will have a very serious discussion of which kinks will qualify for the kink fest. Shenanigans ensue.
But my favourite fic by this writer has to be the wonderful  Cheap Motel

Last but not least on this set of recs, one of my favourite Hannigram artists co-wrote this amusingly bonkers fic based on the awesome Pastrygram!! - 

“Donut, touch me” by EllieXTwelve and @hannibalssketchbook
Hannibal (TV)
Hannibal and Will meet their match (PASTRYGRAM!!!)


It’s been months since my first “Long Fic” list {x} and thought it was time to not only update but go bigger! All the fanfiction listed below are OVER 100k. So get comfortable and let’s do this! 

To be on this list the fic MUST be completed and not mentioned in the previous list which you can read here. A few of these I have not read myself, though I have vetted the first few pages to make sure they have good SPAG and intros, and an asterisk(*) will be placed beside the ones I have already read. Please be sure to read authors tags and warnings before reading.

My *new* master post for all Stucky recs, ask fills, and rec lists.

PS - also shout out to ohcaptainmycaptain1918, kryptaria and rayvonfox for making it on this list TWICE … that’s just … I can’t … how? and just wow. 

peggyrizzo  asked:

would you ever consider sharing your To Read List? Just out of curiosity. I really want to start one but i have like zero impulse control and normally will just get in a "MUST READ ALL THE FICS" mood and devour a bunch right then. I need to be better about it. How do you organize yours? I know you have a place if people want to rec them for you but what then? Do you sort them, ect? Just curious.

Nope. Never. 

I have several reasons, first of which being that I’ll never recommend anything that I haven’t read first. I know a lot of authors don’t put proper trigger warnings on their fics (even at the beginning to say “Hey, there’s some dark shit in here.”) and it’s awful for some readers to unknowingly come upon a non-con scene in the middle of a story with no lead up to it. That’s why (especially if other authors don’t do it) I have all my fic recs marked with trigger warnings on my website. 

Another big reason that I won’t share my to read list is because I don’t want feelings to get hurt. I’ve had people message me and say that they’ve quit writing because I took their WIP off of my fic rec list. And honestly, while I do understand that my list has become a thing where writers can get a decent amount of traffic to their stories, I really don’t want it to be a thing that writers use to validate their writing. Some AMAZING stories will NEVER get on that list simply because I don’t particularly care for the pairing or trope. It doesn’t mean the quality of the story is bad, it means that it’s not my thing. Unfortunately, not everyone understands that. So if I were to share that to read list and a writer saw their fic come down but then NOT make it to the fic rec list, they might assume that they’re story is bad, when in reality, it just wasn’t for me.

As for organizing it, I have the form attached to a GoogleDoc spreadsheet, so when people send recommendations through it, they automatically get sorted into categories like pairing, rating, etc.

You MUST find time to read this fanfic by tumblr blogger hiilikedragons! You. Won’t. Regret.

Of course you have to know and love the HTTYD franchise to enjoy it, because it is a HTTYD AU.

I’m not even gonna give you a summary, because you just have to find/make time to sit down, undisturbed, and read all of them. It is sweet, amazing, loving, heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, tragical, and perfect! It shows a “What if?” storyline to the first How to Train Your Dragon movie like no other I’ve read.

WARNING: This fic DOES contain smut and language, so obviously it is not intended for younger readers.

Please read them all and leave comments and likes for her, since, in my opinion, this is the best HTTYD fanfic on the internet.
