Summary: Anyway, I was clearing away Tumblr and saw this gif of Sookie staking Bill from season 6.  Inspiration immediately bloomed for a one-shot and here it is.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So I usually love anything that Gyllene writes and this little one shot is no exception. It’s simple and perfect.

It’s basically her take one what would’ve happened if Sookie’s stake HAD killed Bill. (Ah, we can all dream, right???) I loved the uncertainty that pervades this fic and the adorable quality that comes in at the end.

(I’ve been watching too many cooking shows…gah!) Anyhoo-it’s a sweet and short little fic that will leave you all fuzzy and happy. So go head on over and check it out. And don’t forget to leave her some love!

Summary: Clary, Jace, Alec, Isabelle and Simon are out hunting demons when one of them gets hurt while fighting. Will they be able to help who got hurt? Or will it be too late? One-Shot! (Rated M just because I’m paranoid!)

My oh-so-humble thoughts
This is just a simple little one shot that totally kinda ripped my heart out. It’s no secret that I have anxiety-I’ve been pretty open about that. And all my anxiety (lately) centers around something happening to Mr. Kelpie or the kidlets. Seriously I’m tearing up just thinking about it.

So putting myself in Clary’s shoes in this fic was absolutely gut wrenching. I can feel the anguish and heartache and uncertainty. And it’s horrible. But extremely compelling, which is why you’re getting a spotlight on it. :)

You should head on over and check it out-she’s got a couple more fics that I may delve into when I recover. Seriously, like no joke. But that’s a good thing!!! So go and don’t have a heart attack cause I did warn you. Thanks lovelies!

Summary: (Formerly Marriage of Inconvenience?) Family and distrust almost tore them apart. Determination and love has kept them together. They believe that they can withstand anything but will this new problem destroy all that they’ve worked so hard to build? Will love be enough this time? OOC/AU

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay so I admit-I read this a long time ago…like over a year ago and meant to spotlight it then. But I forgot and fell off the spotlight bandwagon for awhile. And I just rediscovered it and it’s got so many more chapters!!! Of which I haven’t had time to read yet. I’m up to about 20, which was about where I stopped before but there’s something like 86 now. And that makes me excited!!

I loved this fic before and I still love it. It’s angsty but not in an anxiety producing way, if that makes sense. Usually angst tears me up and if I’m in a funk I can’t read it. But this one is written in such a way that it’s angsty and sad and heartbreaking-but in a hopeful kinda way.

It’s compelling and completely new in terms of originality. And she write incredibly well for someone with a pen name wannabewriter-she is one, don’t let her fool you. :) So head on over and leave her some love cause I want more. Seriously, I’m devouring this fic all over again and I’ll run out of new chapters soon. Thanks lovelies and enjoy!!

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: 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: 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: What if the witches cursed Sookie instead of Eric? How far will Eric go to help her?

My oh-so-humble thoughts
This is such a quick read (7 chapters in total) that explores a completely different outcome of the witch’s curse in season 4. What if SOOKIE were the one cursed? I know there are at least a few fics out there with this premise, but as always, this lovely lady has delivered an exceptional fic.

I love the evolution of the characters in this…and the last few chapters-SO FUCKING true to character! The stubbornness and misunderstandings are just…well, she writes them damn well.

Since this is so short, I don’t want to give too much away. Obviously it’s pretty self explanatory from the summary what the premise is. But I can promise a truly awesome read if you click on the link above. Seriously, when does she NOT give us an awesome story, but whatever. :)

So head on over to her wordpress site-you’ll find this fic, a bunch of others and of course the obligatory SkarsPorn. So read on a leave her some love cause she deserves it. Enjoy lovelies!

Summary: Following the events of the Season 5 finale, Pam turns Sookie. Eric/Sookie AU of season 6 with side Pam/Tara. No Nora or Willa. Angst with smut and a fluffy ending.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So, when this chick says angst she must be speaking a different language than me cause she meant *ANGST*. All caps. Yeah. I cry everytime I read this one-and yes I’ve read it multiple times. Seriously.

Does that tell you how much I love it though? So yeah, there’s definite angst, but I love her take on season 6 stuff because it’s highly implausible, but she’s managed to make it work so fucking well. The choices the characters make are perfect and seem very in character to me, though I believe there is an AN saying they might be OOC. I don’t see it.

It’s not a long fic, only 7 chapters though those chapters are decent sized. I usually breeze through it in about a day in between all the kidlet whining and such. :) So it should be no problem for y’all. So go check her out and leave her some love. Thanks lovelies!

Summary: Sookie is the ADA working on an important case that she’s unknowingly tied to.  Eric is the lead detective.  Can they work together or will their first encounter get in the way? AU/AH

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So, anything Miss KJ writes is golden. Obviously. She’s been a long time fave of mine. And I used to be totally obsessed with L&O. So it stands to reason that this fic grabbed my attention immediately.

I love Sookie as an ADA. Her stubborn personality channels beautifully into that lawerly character. And Eric as a cop-dude, KJ has a thing for Eric in uniform and rightfully so. I love their first meeting, right down to the bonus epilogue type chapter-their interactions are just perfect. I’m on the edge of my seat every time I read this, despite the fact that I know what happens. It’s just THAT good.

I obviously think you should click on over to her site and read this-and all her other fics-cause they all freakin’ rock! So do that, leave her love and bask in her total awesomeness. :)

Summary: After being staked, attacked, almost drained, nearly raped, dealing with a kidnapping scheme, and being assaulted again, Sookie decides that enough is enough. Taking her own life in her hands leads to discoveries, connections, and developments that will forever alter her life and its direction.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
I’ve read this fic numerous times-in fact it’s been up on my phone for a few months (yes, you read that right, MONTHS!!!) waiting to be spotlighted. It was the second tab of…80 something tabs. *hangs head in shame*

So, this spotlight is a long time coming. This is a complete departure from SVM canon and it’s perfect. It gives Sookie power where the books tended to take it away. It gives her control…and she’s made Sophie into a pretty fucking awesome queen instead of the fucktarded twat we usually get. I mean, don’t get me wrong I love twatish Sophie, but it’s refreshing to have her on “our” side.

This is a short ish fic-17 chapters-so it won’t take long to get through. But, like I said, it’s worth the read. And it’ll leave you cheering for everyone involved…especially our duo. :) So go and leave her some love as you enjoy a truly awesome fic. Thanks lovelies!!
