    So anyway my favourite CATS fanfic right now is To Be Blind When You're Born. It's ongoing, updates about every two weeks or so, and it features cats who act like cats, and it's about Mistoffelees moving into London and and, uh, growing up and meeting cats? Actually just have the AO3 blurb

    London, February 1939 - and an inquisitive black cat is learning how to grow up.

    It starts with a pair of tiger-striped rogues with identical grins breaking into his humans' house. Then it's a whole new world to discover, full of fascinating cats who all have a little magic and a little wisdom of their own.

    The world is changing - the humans are acting strangely, and there are very strange rumours about - but for now, there's a junkyard full of cats, and a city full of dustbins, and a sky full of stars.
    It seems pretty setting/period accurate and I'm really liking how the characters are written.
    Author seems like a cool lady.

    opened Ao3 and was surprised to see trailerstuck still updating, am going to read the whole thing through over the next week because the damn thing is probably as long as the GoT books by now, and contains more gore, heartbreak, and deceit. also probably incest.

    its better than GoT tho, read it instead

  4. Can we also ask for fic recs here? (Plus I'll rec some in general!)
    Anyone got any personal Harry Potter fic rec lists? I'm mostly angling for Drarry (character study stuff) but I'm also into like those year rewrite AUs, interesting premises (like what if Ginny was slytherin)
    I've been trawling around those Drarry blogs but I figure someone might know some hidden gems or stuff I just missed in general!

    I lied about trailerstuck, its a little too heavy for me right now, with the 'Rona going around

    rereading all of the UFUT (Unwanted Free Ugly Troll, oldy but a goody, most of you probably know of it but just in case I am legally obligated to share) universe because I want tiny trolls with a happy ending tonight

    Might be the wrong thread to ask, but some of my ao3 bookmarked fics have been deleted by their authors and I don't remember what they were, but I'm afraid one of them might have been the "yacht" fic. I'm not even sure if it was hosted on ao3, but it was a post game fic with the trolls, humans, parental units, and davesprite on a...yacht. Relationships ensue. I'm pretty sure it was written before the beta trolls showed up. Cant remember if it even had the alpha kids honestly. I miss it and if it's been erased I'll be super sad :(

    I don't remember much else or what the ships were. Might have been davespite/karkat?? Also DS had only one arm but otherwise I'm pretty sure he was humanized again and he went by a nickname so there weren't two daves. Also angst over who is the "real" Dave. Y'all know how it goes

    Much thanks, this fic has been bothering me for a few days <3

    New Horizons by ArmIa
    “Hey, I know that place!” the cat asserts. “Deimos is one of my favorite vacation spots!”

    You cannot help but be skeptical of this.

    PotteryWalrus halfway hideous and halfway sweet

    Since the remake is out, anyone wanna rec me some FF7 fics from way back? Ideally NOT any cloud goes back in time and FIXES It plots since I've had so many of those lol let the boy rest

    I will accept Sephiroth resurrected and repentant though because that shit is my jam

    Fave pairings are Cloud/Zack/Aerith, Cloud/Zack/Sephiroth, and the ever rare Cloud/Zack/Aerith/Sephiroth. I will also accept Aerith/Tifa because I don't read enough of that and I should

    Oh whew! I would have been Number One Sad Person if Askerian had gone missing.

    Verily surprised Xue Yang peddler

    Let me blanketly recommend Ciceqi. She has written far, far more than is currently available, but there was an incident involving some extreme harassment. She has been slowly uploading her old works, so it’s worth checking in from time to time.

    Hey, if this is the right place for asking for fic recs, y'all know any good FMA fics? I just finished Brotherhood recently and realized that now I am free to consume fancontent. Any genre, character-focus, or ship is A-OK with me...I kind of just want to know what the Good Fics are in this fandom that I am coming to so late......although if I did have to choose, I'd appreciate a little Greed/Ling.

    I really like Elfpen's stuff. It's post Manga/Brotherhood. Mostly Ed as a uni professor, but there's also some on Al and Ling doing politics in Xing.

  18. More fun alternative fanfic!
    Someone made a page on a rate my professors website for Lionel Elliot, the biology professor from that one episode of The Magnus Archives, then rated him as if they were the students from said episode

    Just a little delight, it's pretty silly, and who knows if the website will take those reviews down lol

    Very long Skyrim fic, Vilkas as love interest, Farkas as best bro ever (if he isn't you done fucked up the fanfic but I adore my Big Boy)
    A modern-women-into-vidya-game fic, with some interesting thought into the dragon language and shit. I'm on chapter 62, there are Many More chapters but the "main quest" is finished.

    The author is currently writing a Foresworn!Dragonborn fic as well so I'll be reading that next thanku
