Just a few congratulatory tweets to the ever so graceful Lupita Nyong’o!
This is going to be mainly ziam. I sometimes read other stuff and those work will be listed here as well, but, yeah, ziam.
Here we go.
Everything transgenicveins writes is a gift from the heavens but these three stories are my favourites:
If you haven’t read Bioluminiscent Vampire Squid yet, please reconsider your entire life. Giselle is an absolute wonder, her writing is hilarious and moving. And my darling Elena did the illustration for the fic. So, like, get on with it. You can come cry with me when you’re done. Giselle’s other fics are also marvelous so be sure to check out The Dreams That You Wish and Bitter Sweet And Strange.
You can’t possibly be in this fandom and not know who Caitlin is. She rules the ziam writing kingdom. She wrote 28 stories and every single one of them is worth your time but these are my top 5:
I’ve been stuck looking at my blinking cursor for the last five minutes trying to find the words to introduce this next rec but I am failing miserably. I’ll just tell you that I read it twice in a row without stopping for sleep or food. That it’s one of the most awesome thing I have ever read and that I thank God every day for its existence. But The Sun Comes Up Instead. And by the same author, you should definitely read Kill Monsters In The Rain , You Look Great When I’m Fucked Up and The Truth Or Something Beautiful. Alex has a way with words that makes me hate myself a lot.
Lea is a gift. She doesn’t write often but when she does! Boy, she hits every spot. I love her writing so much. It’s so detailed and vivid and rich. She’s amazing. Read every single one of her stories. Read them all and weep! My favourites are: Let’s Pretend It’s Love and You’ll Never Treat Yourself Right, Darling, But I want You To.
Galaxies by biggrstaffbunch is such a warm, feel-good, happy read. I love it a lot and I think people should talk more about it.
snuffleslove is truly a wonderful writer. I spent about a week, last month reading all her work and I was left speechless. People can do so much and I am always astounded by that. That’s what I think when I read her/his (I dunno) stories. My top 3 are:
I would be a poor excuse of human being if I didn’t rec Rave’s writings. I could scream about Rave for days on end. She’s amazing and unapologetic about her tastes and it’s amazing. It bring me so much joy. If you haven’t read the Some Girls series, we can’t be friends. I’m sorry, I don’t make the rules. U Got It Bad is unfortunately a wip but it is still worth your time. It’s actually all you should read, tbh.
Hollow Creatures Don’t Feel the Earth Shake by wasp gave me all the feels. Definitely a good read.
There’s a The Porposal AU somewhere on the internet and no one on tumblr ever talks about it. SHAME ON ALL YOUR COWS!!! It’s called Where I Belong (and Long To Be) by rubycrowned. Go read it and come back with a full report.
Listen, if you haven’t read jannika’s work, then there’s nothing I can do for you. It’s the basics. She’s so fucking amazing and talented, I can’t sleep at night. I love every single one of her fics and you should read them all but if you only have time for one fic (for the rest of your life) then read Cold Gym Floor Honeymoons and its sequel With Affection, I promise. I still cry about it. But seriously, every one of her fics is a gem. Read them all.
A few weeks ago, for the big bang, Jaya published what became one of my favourite fics of all time.
I can’t even talk about it, I love it too much. *clutches boobs in agony*
When We Met On A Cloud by retts is one of the 1st ziam fic I’ve read and it’s one of those fics I keep re-reading for the sheer fluff and witty banter. I love it a lot. And from the same author, the glorious series Tennis Almost Rhymes With Dick.
Cards On The Table by StormDancer is the fic that stayed with me for weeks afterwards. I couldn’t read anything else for days after I read it. And I’ve reread it so many times since, I almost know it by heart. Bliss.
Yours Faithfully by threeturn is the wackiest, strangest most awesome, coolest, funniest, hottest fic ever written and if you haven’t read it than you have to! NOW!
I Want To Be Part Of It All by shadesofmediocrity. If you only read one roadtrip AU in your life, it has to be this one.
Sam writes beautifully and for all the ships and she’s amazing and I love her and her fics and I wish I could express myself more clearly but my love for this author is making me dumb. For ziam, you have to read Connected. And she wrote a big bang fic that was published on my birthday and it was everything I never knew I wanted. Seriously, this fic changed my life. OT5 FTW!!!! Under All Circumstances. READ IT! I rec’d it to a friend of mine and after she read it, she sent me a PM: “fuck that was unexpectedly hot!” OT5 is the answer to everything!!!!! (5 dicks, 5 lovely boys falling in love with each other! WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!)
Of course, I wouldn’t be who I am today without These Inconvenient Fireworks. I mean, was there ever a better fic? I don’t think so.
If you’re a larry shipper as well you should definitely check out these authors: vashtaneradas , dangerbears , zarah5. Flawless. Actually super serious about this. They are flawless. It’s a miracle I haven’t stopped writing after reading what these people can produce.
I guess that’s it. I think I included everything. If I didn’t, well it’s after 2 A.M. Don’t yell at me, please.
Enjoy your reading and drop me a line after you’re done reading. I love discussing fics.
saw one of these things for the USA. decided we needed an english version.
We’re going to rob an armored car? Well…we’re gonna try.
i wanna continue reign, but mary and bash are notp, i just want frary back
