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!

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.

Summary: Isabelle Lightwood publicly humiliated me. I’ll make her pay by hurting the thing she most cares for: Clary Fray. Oneshot, OOC, AH. Rated T for language.

My oh-so-humble thoughts
Okay. I’ll admit. I was skeptical of this one. I fully went into this one shot EXPECTING to throwing me phone at something. Buuuuut- you know what they say when you assume right?

This was so perfect. It’s absolutely…darling is the word that pops into my head. She correct when she says in the summary that the characters are OOC, but it’s not as bad as I thought it’s be.

I can’t really say much more without giving it away, although I’m fairly sure I gave a way a huge bit just above, but whatever. Y’all know I usually only read HEAs. :)

It’s a quick read and adorably fluffy, so if you want some *awwwwwww* feelings you should really go read. Considering this was her first TMI fic, it was really well done.

Summary: I think my inspiration for this was another trip to the salon, and no, I only got my hair done! (you’ll understand my reason for clarifying once you read, lol).

My oh-so-humble thoughts
OH.MY.GOD. This might be the pinnacle of my week-seriously, this story…. *hold for a moment while I compose myself*

Okay, now-yeah, this one shot is so many shades of awesome!!! I have so many things I could say, but I don’t want to ruin the brilliant amazingness that she’s managed to put together.

Let me just say, as a frequent patron of….this kind of thing…this story rocked so much. I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard at a fic in so long…and then had to stifle moans in the gym sauna cause of how hot it was…and no, not the sauna. Yeah it switches gears quickly, but amazingly smoothly.

Ugh, I can’t even put into words how much you should really go read this. Seriously. Now. Go.

 

Hola Lovelies

Hey my lovelies! It’s been a much better day here in my house, only a slight fat lip this morning from a well placed head butt. But that gave me time to fiddle a bit on the computer and actually write today.

So, here’s another reminder to get your votes in for the Get Inked Contest.

Voting is open until Friday at midnight and you can vote as many times as you like. There are 3 fics in the running, all of which are awesome. Seriously. :)

And…surprise, surprise…I have a new one shot for you! It’s not the smutty one I’ve been hemming and hawing about but I *think* you’ll still be satisfied. In a flufferific kinda way that is. :)

This was actually inspired by a Buzzfeed article (specifically #8). But I actually had a few brainstorms so there may possibly be more of these flufftastic little tidbits. Yeah this was *supposed* to be like 1 page, maybe 500 words….didn’t happen. This blossomed into a nice 1700+ word one shot. Ah well, what can ya do? :) I’m sure y’all are so upset. So click the banner and it’ll take you right there.
