Summary: I have never been claustrophobic. I had a feeling I wouldn’t be saying that again for a while. I also haven’t been afraid of the dark even though I know more than most of what can be found in the dark. Yet another fear I would probably end up developing. Something about being trapped in a dark car trunk for hours would probably do that to some people. Starts in Club Dead.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay so I read this years ago, when she was first publishing. It’s the first in a trilogy and dear GOD I was so on edge reading this!!! It’s masterfully written!

Like I said, this is the first of three. And it starts in Club Dead during…that scene. You know the one. And her interpretation of the events following as well as the continuation of the story is genius. She’s hit all the major points from the book while still giving it a unique twist. I love how she’s developed the characters in a more real way and especially how she’s changed the Witch War-so freaking awesome!

Because this is the first of three you will probably want to reach through this screen and strangle me for recommending this when you get to the end. However, the other two parts are finished so you can go ahead and read on asap. I will get to spotlighting them as well, but I’m not sure when. I promise you this fic (and it’s sequels) are totally worth the read. If you like new and unique and a stronger Sookie, this is definitely for you. Head on over and read-and don’t kill me! Enjoy lovelies!

Summary: “Trying to convey the benefits of modern vaccinations, or modern medicine in general, to a pirate whose first aid kit was made entirely of clothing scraps and rum had been one the more difficult battles she had fought since the job of “modernizing” Hook had been taken on by her and her family. Or, Operation: Sparrow. As Henry liked to call it. (Yes, Sparrow as in Captain Jack, because, hey, her son was 13 and thats what happens when Mom starts dating a pirate).”

Or: Emma takes Killian to the hospital to get all the suggested booster vaccinations for this world and discovers that even pirates have their limits.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
I found this-like always-on the Captain Swan Forever Facebook page. It’s probably safe to assume that I get everything Captain Swan from there simply because it appears in my Facebook feed and I don’t have time to search for myself.

But this is a hilarious one shot that I loved!! It’s hilarious. Seriously this is something I can totally picture. And it’s so simple, just like the dentist one I posted awhile back. Of all the things in this world, these are two that I can totally see Killian being freaked about. Medicine is barbaric. >:(

It’s worth the read and it’s short so it’s not like you’ll be languishing over it to get to the funny parts. It’s all funny, all 2500 words. So go over to AO3 and leave her some kudos and comments. Thanks lovelies!!

Summary: 700 years ago Prince Niall gave up his most precious possession- his mostly Human great granddaughter- to end the war between Vampires and Fairies. A/U

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Wow-this fic…just duuuuuuude! I read this back in 2011 when she first published it and I can remember vividly the anxious waiting between chapters. It’s a tragedy that it’s taken me so long to spotlight such an awesome fic.

This fic takes you so many places emotionally and the way she weaves the happy moments in with the dark ones is genius. Seriously, the way she melds this fic together is perfect. She’s emphasized the best traits of our favorite couple and given us a slew of new characters to love.

So head over and gobble up all 25 chapters like NOW! And then, of course, leave her some love! Thanks darlins and enjoy!!

Summary: AU Emma decided to keep Henry when she got out of jail and is working at Granny’s diner when she meets Killian. Killian falls for her quickly, and Henry seems pretty taken with him too – it’s only Emma that remains at a wary distance.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
This fic is so incredibly sweet. Seriously. This is exactly how our Captain Swan duo would be in the real world. Fo’shizzle. (…did I seriously just type that?!? *facepalm*)

It’s so endearingly sweet. Like my little shipper heart just fluttered and very nearly died of cuteness. I can’t even begin to tell you how perfectly she’s written our lovely couple.

It’s a one shot-a long one at 11,000+ words-but still just a one shot. I mean, I’d be perfectly fine if it continued… *hint hint* :) So head on over and give it a read and leave her some love. Cause it’s awwwweeesome!

Okay so this isn’t really a one shot, so much as a tumblr drabble. But it’s hearted on my page just the same and it has been for awhile. It’s so simple. It’s really just a snippet of our fave TMI characters at the beach.

It’s adorable and teasing in its simplicity. It sounds like something that could happen to any one of us on a summer day at the beach. People are teasing each other, swimming, tricks-everything.

This is actually over on tumblr and she’s so talented. You should really go follow her cause she posts all kinds of stuff. :)

Summary: Eric is owner of a multi-million dollar corporation. He is content and single until life throws a monkey wrench in his program. This piece is funny; sad; light and has it’s moving moments. It is my first all human FF and I have shaken things up.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
This fic is older, but a shining example of a perfect AH fic. At least in my eyes. It’s so real and gritty and evokes all the emotions. ALL.THE.EMOTIONS. I’m not even kidding a teensy bit.

It’s about life. And how even in the twists and turns good things come. You take the good with the bad and everything will work out the way it’s supposed to. You know, with our favorite characters interspersed. :)

It’s a 30 chapter fic, but it’s complete. I can breeze through in a few days in and around my other daily mommy duties, but it’s HIGHLY worth the investment of your time. This chick is soooo talented and I can’t wait to read her newer stuff that I haven’t had a chance to yet. So go-read and leave her love. Enjoy lovelies!

Summary: After Killian moves in with Emma, she quickly learns that he has quite the sweet tooth, so it comes as no surprise when he ends up needing to see a dentist. What does shock Emma are the extreme, and somewhat humorous, measures her pirate takes to get out of that appointment.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
This fic-I have to say-made me laugh. And not like a gentle chuckle or a feminine giggle. This was a full out guffaw, sprinkled with a bit of cackle, and a snort at the end for good measure.

When you think about it, it makes TOTAL sense that Killian would be…wary…of the dentist. I mean, dentistry is a pretty barbaric profession. Can you tell how alike Killian and I are in this regard?!?

So yeah, this quick little one shot will tickle your funny bone completely. So, head on over to AO3-read, comment and leave kudos. Because this chick is awesome!

BTW-the link above is for AO3, but is ff.net is more your thing, head here. :)
