reasons for recommending: shreya is a poetry master and this particular poem hit me right in the feels because it's really fucking scary and sad and just leaves you feeling shook. she also wrote it in a way that it's two poems that combined make one poem and i'm
i mean look at them up above. stupid fucking idiots in love i mean really.
for those of you who don't know battelstar galactica is a sci fi tv show. probably best sci fi tv show i've ever watched and my ultimate favourite tv show ever.
i mostly read starbuck/apollo (aka kara thrace/lee adama) fics - the two idiots in the gif. they're fighter pilots, there's lots and lots and hella fucking lots of drama and history between them and just yk they're both awesome.
so. i'm not a fan of the game of thrones tv show but i absolutely fucking love the asoiaf books and enjoy reading fics. my favourite pairing is jaime lannister/lyanna stark (pls read the fic i rec'd with them, it'll all become clear because they're perfect), but i also enjoy arya/gendry, robb stark/not dying and becoming king in the north with an awesome wife, lyanna stark/robert baratheon who is not such a dick, oberyn martell/lyanna stark (i think it's becoming obvious i'm a lyanna stark fan o

i don't think i would've ever thought of molly weasley as a dragon rider but fucking hell it's such a glorious headcanon that eli has decided to run with it and run wild and write this hella fucking beautiful mollly/arthur story, but also, it's so much more than a romance story (i haven't read the latest chapter yet but the ones i had, molly and arthur haven't even met yet..) right now it's mostly a story about moll
ink stains on my sheets by @shadowycorner
eli does such a great job at writing a broken hermione after the war in this that it filled me with such longing for something and i don't know for what. hermione feels guilty, she's running but i don't think even she realises what or who she's running from, but she's so used to constant, terrible and unrelenting danger that she simply doesn't even know how to exist without fighting against (for) something and trying to stay alive. and that
the road not taken looks real good now by @down-in-flames
this is a sad and heartbreaky jily featuring the combination of champagne problems and 'tis the damn season by taylor swift and honestly, taylor does such a brilliant job of weaving those two songs into a story, i felt like i was sitting in the car with james and lily, suffering along with them. the story is partly told in flashbacks which work really great in the context of the story, slowly leading us towards the moment tha
six impossible things by @something foxy
deni decided to rewrite revival, her old louis/oc story that i was seriously hooked on and it's this - six impossible things (because lbr all the next gens are a lil mad, aren't they? all that fame and glory...). there's just one chapter up (deni write more pls soon you have to) but it pulls you right into the world of rona mckenna. it's obvious she's had some difficulties lately with her mental health, that's she's been through some stuff an
pomegranate seeds by @page thirteen.
i legit can't tell you how damnably fluffy this original fic is and how seriously jealous makes me of the familial relationship(s) depicted in it. the story is told from the poc of liliana, whose friend's aisha's (later girlfriend's) grandmother, nanny is the grandmother we'd all love to have. she loves to cook for her family and cooking and feeding them is an act of love. she also loves liliana and embraces her as part of the family from the tim
this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne by @tinyporcelainehorses
i love redemption fics, and i've always thought dudley definitely deserved one. so when i saw this story on the archives i couldn't resist starting it and i got hooked from the first couple of paragraphs - the idea that dudley is the muggle cho eventually gets together with is freaking brilliant and i love that take on cho's story (the crumbs we got from jkr at least). the two of them meet at harry's wedding and

i'm legit obsessed with these fics. they're hilarious and amazingly well written and there's fucking TOADOPOLIS in them and just ughhh i feel like everyone absolutely needs to read them, especially if you want to die laughing because you will.

i'm feeling very depressed and black holeish and like i'll never crawl out of it so i thought making this blog post might make me feel slightly better.
anyhow, i was talking to deni a couple of days ago when i mentioned that there are some people on the site with whom i talk fairly regularly like her (++ap) and shreya (++ap) and branwen (++ap1 ++ap2)(#sorrynotsorry for calling you all out, friends) and i'm certain they know i adore all of their stories so please go read their entire aps be
Darktooth's Vampire Emporium by @Rumpelstiltskin
narrated by @crowsb4bros
fic | podfic
rumpels is truly a queen of humour.
the entire Bram Stoker Be Rollin' in His Grave RN is a masterpiece in vampire fiction but Darktooth's Vampire Emporium is a gem - a series of spoofy infomercials about the products made specially for vampires by Karl Darktooth, a self-proclaimed inventor.
the sheer number of special vampire products that rumpels has managed to invent for this story i
