Not fanfiction, but relevant: have you read Dungeon Meshi?
@leitstern oh hell yes I LOVE that Zelda fic!! (despite the fact that I too have never played any of the games lol) I live in hope that it will one day be updated
any videogame fic that plays around with the gameplay mechanics is a weakness of mine too. especially the kind of unrealistic mechanics that you're not supposed to look at too hard from a Watsonian point of view. it's my favorite thing, I love when authors go there :D
AO3 won the Hugo!!!
I am reminded by the gripes thread of my favorite content warning ever, where @jacktrash warned for "violence not typical of any canon, such as moose punching"
That is delightful. :D
Honestly I'm very fond of silly tags in general? I can't think of any specific favorites I've seen, but there are so many really hilarious ones, as the AO3 Tags thread demonstrates, and I like them a lot.
(And I'm frankly mostly-jokingly offended that the only fanfic with the tag "Pearl saying fuck" on AO3 is my main fic, tbh. It's a tag that needs to have more content.)
Found family. Found family where:
1. Everyone apparently has a crush on the canon main character and are very protective of him.The
2. The canon grumpy character who intimidates everyone has a soft spot for kids. (And kids are completely fearless around same.)
3. Everyone. Is so. Fucking. Cute. With lots of domestic flailing. And romance among other members of the household.
The fandom is The Goblin Emperor and the fic is "A Complete Education," and the sequel, "Continuing Education." It is freaking adorable and also hilarious.
this in deadpool fanfic especially is my JAM. (also winter soldier to a lesser degree, but deadpool is funnier. he gets along with kids because he has the sense of humor of an 8-year-old.)
Complex networks of characters. Not all of them may know each other, but everyone knows someone who knows someone.
Writing is a good way to work out how one would handle difficult situations in real life. For the abuse support group fic I'm working on, we have side-fics about various aspects of life in the group, and one of them is an "awkward questions from children" one, where we're getting to work out what would be a good way to explain things like intersexuality, racism, and abortion to kids.
Normal-human AUs giving shoutouts to nonhuman characters. How do we make the robot fit in? Is puppy now. Flawless.
star wars normal au chewbaccas are split about about 50-50 between ‘enormous dog’ and ‘very hairy man whose english sucks’ and i’m here for that
I love Foreign Exchange Chewie! slightly disappointed that I’ve never seen Foreign Exchange Artoo who only speaks Esperanto
I've only read the first chapter of this fic so far but the concept makes me happy - species swap Friendsim!
Spoiler: three houses shit
The fact that Edeleth fans are so dedicated to both giving her teddy bears that she gives very uncreative names to and her dying that they will find ways to combine these two things together into a single fic that will destroy your soul.
Also blessed polyamory content in fic is blessed. I did not know I needed Hubert/Edelgard/The Professor until I read it but now that I have.
boy do i need that
It's also just kind of cool seeing how everyone's version of the Professor is different. Like no one's is the same. We all have our own variants of this motherfucker out there and while some things may be in common mine will never be exactly the same as another's.
Ooh, that sounds delightful. Hubert is-- he's not my favourite, but he is up there. And Hubert/Edelgard/Byleth sounds like such a ship! Would you be willing to share the link?
Here is the link! Thing to note is that it is nsfw.
Thank you for the link!
