    Harry Potter and the Lack of Lamb Sauce is supposed to be a retelling of the series, or some of the series, with a wizard-fied Gordon Ramsay as a potions teacher

    I have read only a few paragraphs but its got like 99 chapters on AO3 and i am not sure if it's in this thread and it seemed Important

    bless

    A Thing of Vikings is so good

    drop httyd 1 berk into real-world history (integrated in, as bascially some very stubborn vikings hanging on in the hebrides out of sheer stubbornness with their social structures changed due to pressures from fighting with dragons) and watch as they break history

    Oooh, link?

    Back on Star Wars time travel fixit, I’ve found a new good one: Feathers on the Sand, main PoV secretly-force-sensitive Padme. Summing up the premise: if I had known then what I know now, I would be a 14-year-old with severe trauma.

    Realistic PTSD! Realistic PTSD for everyone! .... Oh dear.

    Clever worldbuilding & critical examination of societies allowing both child soldiers & child politicians, and the consequences and aftermath of spending any amount of one’s formative years as a slave. Young Anakin especially is very realistically drawn, particularly his boundary-testing and hyper-vigilance with Obi Wan and other Jedi.

    Does anyone have some au/spoiler-free The Untamed fics? Me and gf just mainlined the first 17 eps this week and I would murder for some WWX/LW censor-free romance XDD (Let The Boys Kiss Dammit)

    Does anyone know if the game Xenosaga has any good fanfic? I was bad at the game but I really love the story and aesthetic. Very cute character design and Weird Science Stuff. I guess I should check AO3 but I'm afraid it'll be one of those instances where you can count the fics on one hand. But it is a game instead of a slightly obscure app/web comic so I might be luckier..

    Spent a minute skimming through fic titles and summaries and it appears I will need to do some rereading of the plot because these things are emotional and very plot-specific looking. Also not enough Kosmos. I like Kosmos.
     
  10. prismaticvoid

    prismaticvoid Too Too Abstract

    let me skim through my recs and find the ones that are actually safe haha
    (note: a lot of modern au ones aren't spoiler-free either due to specific character details, I will do my best)
    edit: okay I am back with a few! I believe these to be mostly spoilerless but I make no promises, especially bc most fic writers mix and match cql/mdzs canon together
    you've ruined my life (by not being mine): high school au, explicit in like the last two chapters. wwx and lwj meet during a summer program and develop Feelings that neither is aware of. slooooowburn, brace yourself.
    the necromancer's fairytale: fantasy au, explicit. mind the tags, leans heavily on the yiling patriarch Aesthetic TM. lwj is kidnapped and saved by a monster. (this one does spoil some late-flashback stuff, kinda, regarding the end of the sunshot campaign, decide for yourself how much that matters)
    Wearing Down Every Bone: post-canon groundhog day-ish time loop, explicit. wwx gets cursed to relive the day over and over until he can figure out how to break it.

    Verily surprised Xue Yang peddler

    Welp I was definitely not expecting Xue Yang to hurt my heart in a vague modern AU pwp but here we are.

    Ouch?

    vultures by brawlite

    Mind the tags. Whether or not it’s quite dead dove, it’s proudly sailing the garbage barge. And with a ship like Song Lan/Xue Yang I would be awfully disappointed if it weren’t.

    Verily surprised Xue Yang peddler

    This is a WIP with only four chapters out of a projected 20 so far, but it's so damn good that I Must link it immediately.

    Come From My Inkstone by magicgenetik
    The Untamed/Mo Dao Zu Shi, post-Sunshot.
    Nie Huaisang's brother is worried about him and so insists he go visit one of his friends. He doesn't care which one, just go. Annoyed, Nie Huaisang takes him at his word and heads for Yiling. It's not what he expected, but he has a plan. Oh yes. He will remedy this situation by producing erotica.

    “So your plan,” Nie Mingjue said dubiously, “is to move into the Burial Mounds to write and illustrate erotica about you and Lan Wangji seducing the Yiling Patriarch to earn his trust and sell the public on the idea that he's not a threat, then convince him to give up the Yin Tiger Seal?"

    “The way I said it sounded better,” Nie Huaisang said. “And you forgot the part about me seducing the Ghost General, that is crucial.”

    “I hate this, and as your brother, I am begging you not to actually stick it in a fierce corpse. How much money do you need?”

    The premise sounds like absolutely ridiculous crack, and there is plenty of comedy. But the execution is not just highly entertaining, it's also a very insightful study of the characters, their dynamics, and narrative parallels.

    @prismaticvoid I read necromancer's fairytale and fell down a fic hole that I failed to emerge from for an entire day, so thankyou so much :D


    And @Verily I appreciate Xue Yang SO MUCH MORE now and I kind of hate you for it <3

    ALSO I am about to watch ep33 and I've been holding off because SO MUCH PAIN ALREADY. Please give me all the best timeline fluff recs because my heart aches and here's a couple I've found that have helped immensely:

    The Magical Marriage Ribbons series by starandrea. AU from the Cold Pond Cave Incident and takes the whole 'Headband = marriage' thing and runs off cackling with it. Gentle soft romantic shenanigans. Everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.

    Daemonic Cultivation by CaptainJojo. Okay so as someone obsessed with HDM daemon AUs, I have been fucking Blessed by this this fic. Didn't perfectly follow my own headcanons on the subject, but makes it adorably work. Also, massive fix-it of Canon time lines, solves nearly every death and some besides with the excuse that when your soul is right there going 'THIS IS FUCKING STUPID JUST TALK' communication is far clearer.

    Who wants roughly a million Chat Noir|Adrien Agreste Runs Away From Home fics? 'Cause that seems to be GuardianKarenTerrier's jam. Chat Noir trying to sleep on roof tops and in dark alleys and getting adopted.

    anyone got any good substantial vrisrezi fic to reccommend? I'm mainly interested in post-retcon+post-canon stuff (no epilogues), but tbh I'll read anything if it's well-written enough

    Speaking of the Xue Yang experience, wanna see something spooky? It’s not Xue Yang. I know, he was surprised too!

    Inhuman(e) by dragonofeternal
    Xiao Xingchen/Xue Yang

    You could read it as preslash, or as Xue Yang’s weird troll logic about what it means to care for other people, or some combination. It honestly might appeal to readers who prefer gen as well.

    Spoilers for the coffin town arc. I’m pretty sure it won’t make sense without the context anyway. It’s probably technically drawing on the book canon rather than the show, but it should work just fine regardless of which version you know.

    It’s marked as subtle horror and I thought it delivered perfectly. It gave me shivers in the most delightful way. Excellent early seasonal reading.

    I'm rewatching gravity falls, and was wondering if anyone could rec me a specific form if bipper? I'm looking for Dipper With Bill Powers and similar; NOT looking for bill/dipper. The shared fandom label is frustrating me and I just want powermad and/or angsty boys. Powermad and/or angsty Mabel is also a yes if available?

    I just really have no way of sorting these very different definitions of the word, especially since bill/dipper is so gd popular
