You know why I love AUs? Because the whole point of them is that everything is changed, and yet these two people are still going to meet and fall in love- that they’re so set in stone and so meant to be that you can change literally everything in a hundred universes and they’ll fall in love over and over again.
hoppspindel said: What are your top three favourite fanfics that you've read?
My top 3? They’re a SAD three.
Home, by lanaea. I think. I forget to spell it right. It’s Star Trek ‘09, abandoned just before the end. It’s bitter and I think that sometimes I’d burn things just for the author to just admit she wasn’t going to finish it.
Tales From the House of the Moon by resmiranda, from my Inuyasha days. I stalked it like prey in the desert. It finished.
Bulletproof by foxxcub, a Steve/Tony that helped drag me in. College AU. I loved it.
Hi. I’m a fanfic writer. I write fanfiction.
When I first discovered fandom and fanfiction, I thought about what I wanted to add to it. This was maybe before your fandom; probably even before the one I identify with now.
I decided that the thing I could do (the thing I might be good at) would be fanfiction. I can’t draw well. I can’t make gifs that paint plots. I can’t make lists of music that match to stories. But I could write stories - things that maybe other people would like to read, too.
I can write. Writing is what I’m good at. When I don’t have my own self-generated inspiration I like to write things based in other universes.
Sometimes people want me to write faster than I’m able to. Sometimes people want me to write things different to the things that inspire me. I do want to please everyone — who doesn’t? But I can’t write what isn’t inside me. I can’t write faster than my inspiration allows. I just want to tell the stories that are inside me to tell.
There isn’t a writer here who doesn’t want to please everyone. I feel like I can say that with confidence. But sometimes, please, please understand: we’re not your vending machines. We’re not filled up by other people’s ideas. We’re fuelled by possibility, by impossibility — the same as anyone, I suppose. Writing isn’t easy. We need the spark of inspiration to go with it, else we write something cardboard and stale and contrived.
We’re giving you everything we’ve got, fandom.
Please wait for us. Because when we’re ready?
We’ll give you worlds.

Stilinski’s Car Service by TantUlsa (complete | 1,187 | Rated E)
Derek’s car breaks down in the middle of nowhere and he has to call for help. Stiles, the mechanic, turns up.
“So” Stiles says “before I start working on your car, maybe you want some lubing up yourself?”
Passenger Seat by blue_sweater (complete | 1,537 | Rated M)
This time, it’s Derek’s turn to ask Stiles for help when his car radio breaks. Small spaces will result in interesting situations.
Gotta love the classics by aprettysmalldose (complete | 3,979 | Rated E)
“Or you could just blow me,” He says, casual as all fuck.
Yup. That’s pretty much the fic.
doesn’t matter what you say (i love you anyway) by IAmNotLost (complete | 2,544 | Rated T)
Sometimes, Derek thinks it would be easier if he had just died.
An Introductory Guide to Vehicle Maintenance by p1013 (complete | 2,250 | Rated T)
Derek’s car breaks down. He doesn’t know how to fix it. Help comes with too many moles.
It’s only about 1k. I’m not going to sell it here since people still haven’t seen the movie, but…it’s not what I’d call serious.
Anonymous said: What is this Poison everyone keeps mentioning? Where can I read it? I DO NOT CARE IF I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE FANDOM IT BELONGS TO, YOUR WRITINGS ARE WORTH THE READ ANYWAY. Wow, that got intense. But seriously. Gimme.
I can’t believe how much attention POISON is getting these last few days (yes i still have to capitalise the title or certain people get angry with me for breaking my own rules).
I will always remember P.O.I.S.O.N. with love and admiration. I was always happy when there was a new update. :’>
FrostIron Prompt #1
I keep having ideas for FrostIron fics, but I’m not a great writer, so I’ve decided to post some of them on here as prompts. Please, if you like this idea, feel free to take it and do whatever you want with it (then please send me the link for it when it’s done because I’d love to see it!)
#5: the one where mass effect AU
Commander Steve Rogers. Used to be kind of dead. Can’t dance.
A crew of dysfunctional, bitterly loyal misfits with black humour and enough munitions to take down a small moon.
A shackled AI running the ship that loves to screw with its pilot, a crack-shot smartmouthed guy named Clint.
The tech expert, Tony. Secreted in the main battery usually, except for when he’s in the poker room pretending to smoke a cigar.
Chief medic, Bruce Banner. Drug addict after a voluntary medical experiment gone wrong. Wants to do his duty. Rogers is the only one who’d still give him the time of day. You probably don’t want to make him angry.
Intelligence expert Natasha Romanoff. What it says on the tin. She can dig you up anything, anything at all — except her own past. Top contender for next shadow broker, if she gave a shit about stuff like that.
Loki, unofficial ruler of Omega. Wants what you have and isn’t afraid to take it. Has…issues with one of the crew. The biotic, whatshisname, Thor? Escaped from his father some while ago. So perfect, in every way.
Nick Fury, or as the world might know him, the Illusive Man. He’s in the wind before you can even feel it blowing, but boy does he have some money behind him. He just wants what’s best for everyone. Until he doesn’t.
Something something villain wiping out civilisation and it’s the end of the world as we know it—
—but the Avengers feel fine.
