Tag Archives: one shot

Well…..

Okay so I may have found a bit of my muse…

Turns out that all I needed was a bit of exploring the ff.net forums and doing some of the challenges. Who knew?

So this little one shot I bring you is from the Harry Potter Fanfiction Challenges Forum, specifically the Flavorful Prompts Challenge brought to you by the lovely SnarkyAndProudHufflepuff.

You get either a coffee flavor or candle scent (this one is coffee, specifically cinnamon hazelnut), a character or pairing (this one is James/Lily) and a word or two (these happen to be breeze and cake).

So hopefully you like this little thing I threw together in a matter of hours, almost no going over it and definitely no beta. So forgive me any mistakes. I also tried my hand at those nifty collage things I see everywhere in the fandom…not so sure I pulled it off, but….I did my best on the little sleep I got last night.

So without further ado, click the banner/collage/pic/whatever you want to call it to go to the one shot. Enjoy!


Oh and be on the lookout for more little one shot kinda things like these….I’m finding that they’re working to get the creative juices flowing again so….here’s hoping!

I’m going as fast as I can with BTC and working on some other goodies, but I’m not sure when they’ll be done. So in the interim, I figured I’d post some links for fics I’ve written for past Christmases.

Click the banners to go to the stories and hopefully they’ll get you into some kinda awesome Christmas mood.

Story Spotlight: The Waitress

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!

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. :)

Complete? yes

Summary: [It’s Isabelle’s twenty-first birthday, and she’s hosting a party. She also can’t figure out why Clary does not want to drink any alcohol.] “Maybe she’s pregnant.” Alec teases, slipping his arm around Clary’s shoulders. “You’re pregnant?” Isabelle demands loudly. [Turns out Clary is just the designated driver. T.]

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So I literally found this today-as in the day it posts because that’s when I’m writing it. I’m behind on TMI fanfics purely because I have to slog through the masses to find something decent. So I delved into my fave authors and found this little gem.

It’s simple. It’s literally a tiny slice of life fic that is all fluff. There’s no drama, there’s no angst, there’s no problems…which is so totally refreshing. Apparently she found this on a tumblr prompt blog and dude, I’m so glad she did.

It’s a sweet little one shot that will take next to no time (I read in in the sauna at the gym) but it’s so totally worth it cause it’ll be an instant pick me up. Or it should if you have any kind of shipper heart at all. :) So head on over and check it out and leave her some love. Enjoy lovelies!

Summary: Clary goes out to Pandemonium with Isabelle. During the night she meets Izzy’s adoptive brother who needs a place to crash. When they return to the apartment, tequila shots lead to something A LOT more. Rated M, should probably be higher ;) Be warned scenes of a sexual nature (LEMONS) Rate and Review!

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So this is a one shot-an extremely long one shot. It took me most of the day to read…I was reading sporadically, but still.

Anyways, this fic-it’s so simple, but awesome! It’s got a little porny-ness to it, but it has enough plot to be compelling and interesting. It’s also something that almost everyone can relate to.

She’s managed to nail the characters in such a short fic (I say short, but we’re talking close to 15,000 words so…). It’s amazing-really. And to think I almost missed out on this fic. Seriously, I almost skipped right over it. But I’m so glad I didn’t.

So head on over and check it out. Leave her some love while you’re at it cause this fic is the bomb. :) Thanks lovelies!

AU/Canon/AH: Canon pre-season 7
Complete? yes

Summary: Sam Merlotte and Bill Compton could take their vampire buddy system and shove it, as there was no way in hell Sookie was going to have anything to do with it.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Oh my god! So I really wish this lovely lady wrote for True Blood because this would have been fucking perfection. Seriously.

This is the end of season 6 I believe…maybe episode 1 of Season 7. Honestly I’m not sure cause I only watched those travesties once and then proceeded to block it out of my brain. So yeah. But it’s about the “vampire buddy system” idea and a much better way for that entire shit fest to pan out.

This is one of the best fix fics I’ve read…right down to Sookie’s dialogue. (Seriously, I’ve never been a huge fan of ‘dialect’ typed out, but she manages to make it awesome.) I love her characterizations-this is how the characters SHOULD have been. Ugh, don’t even get me started on how that STILL pisses me off.

So yes, it’s a one shot and definitely worth the read. Especially if you’re as pissed as I am at HBO. Seriously. It won’t take you long, but it’s a great started story of hers…cause you know there’s tons more to read right?!? *wink wink* Yeah, keep an eye out for more spotlights from her cause she rocks my socks so hard!! Yay!

So go read and leave her love. Bonus-she’s all on wordpress so it’s such an easy platform to navigate! Therefore you have no excuses. :oP

Summary: No real summary since it’s on tumblr, but I promise it’s good!!! And I swear I saw a summary on Facebook but I can’t find it now. :/

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay, so like I just said in the summary part, I found this on one of my Captain Swan Facebook pages. And this is actually on tumblr. Apparently it was a prompt submitted to her and I must say…*squeal*

I love this short little ficlet. It’s not long. It’s more of a drabble than a true one shot, so it won’t take much time to get through it, but duuuuuuuuude. It’s so adorable. There’s heartwrenching moments that made me want to bawl, but the fluff definitely comes out.

And the Captain Cobra!!! Honestly I’d more classify this as a Captain Cobra fic than a true Captain Swan, but honestly—do you really care?!?! I love the dynamic between Killian and Henry and she’s managed to capture it in a beautifully real way.

So go and check it out. Then scroll through her tumblr cause yeah…fun fun fun. :)

Summary: “I said that I didn’t know I was going to stake Bill and it’s true. I surprised even myself tonight. But, Eric… you need to know… the fact that I didn’t see it coming doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t do this again” – alternative ending of the s6e1. One shot.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
So much wow. Seriously. Anything this chick writes is like gold, but this…sigh. I haven’t read a “fix” fic for season 6 in a while and honestly I remember why. They tend to be unrealistic. But this one is a completely viable fic. I can see this happening-ya know, if the writer’s didn’t suck so much.

Seriously, why aren’t more of our fanfic ladies writing for shows?!?! Anyhoo, this is a perfectly accurate story in terms of characterization. But she’s maneuvered them into suiting her needs, without taking away from them.

Yeah. It’s a one shot so a quick read. And one that you should seriously go read like now.
