I do not care if you are my mortal enemy, if you ask me to do a period check on your behind to make sure your pants are still good i got your back dude
#and such are the rules of girlhood#thou shalt check thine sisters’ behinds for period stains#thou shalt walk behind thine sister to hide said stain until she can find something to cover it with#thou shalt never deny a tampon to a sister in need#and thou shalt offer ibuprofen whenever possible
i think the name ‘frodo’ has a certain ring to it
If you’re like me, you desperately want to read longer stories. You want to get lost in them for hours - perhaps even days - on end. You want to immerse yourself in beautiful writing, and never surface again!
Well, if that sounds like you, then here are my absolute favorite novel-length and novella-length stories from a variety of fandoms! ALL OF THESE STORIES ARE ABOVE 20,000 WORDS. Many are even over 100,000 words. Rejoice!
There are currently a whopping 1,888 recs in this post, which, at an average of 50,000 words per story, add up to a mind-blowing 94 million words worth of reading. That’s, uh. That’s a lot. You might well be reading stories from this collection for years, and every one of them is worth reading; these stories are hand-picked for their high literary quality, and are the best stories I’ve come across in more than a decade of fannish involvement.
The very best stories, however, are compiled in a top 10 list before the general recs list, and are stories you absolutely must read. Don’t recognize the fandoms these 10 stories are from? Unfamiliar with their associated canon? No problem. Read them as works of original fiction (except for the ones that already are original fiction), because - and trust me when I say this - if they were published books, they would win awards. Don’t believe me? Read them and see for yourself. These novels are works of such creativity and incandescent passion that they will consume you like a moth in a flame, and make you like it.

WHAT KIND OF SADISTIC MONSTER CREATED THIS!!!
That is not what I was expecting…..
But…then what’s the point?
Happy 36th birthday, Jensen Ross Ackles! (March 1st, 1978)
i just needed dispatcher!derek and stiles calling into the sheriff’s dept to talk to the dispatcher bc he was lonely, and subsequently, falling for derek’s voice.
“Beacon Hills Sheriff’s Department,” an unfamiliar male voice answers. Stiles pulls the cell phone away from his ear and stares at it like he accidentally dialed the wrong number. “Hello?” The man’s voice is annoyed, and then the line goes dead.
Stiles hits redial immediately. “Beacon Hills Sheriff’s Department,” the same voice says, more annoyed than before.
“You’re not Edna,” Stiles says. “Edna’s the evening dispatcher, where’s Edna?”
“Stiles Stilinski. The better question is, who are you?”
“My dad doesn’t work with a Derek Hale. I know everyone who works in that department, and I’d remember a Derek Hale.”
“You’re the sheriff’s son?” Derek asks.
Stiles grins, despite the fact that he’s on the phone. “So, you’ve heard of me?”
“I wouldn’t be proud of that fact.”
Stiles huffs and hangs up.
The next night, he calls again. The same Derek Hale answers the phone.
“Where is Edna?”
“She’s out of town for awhile.”
“So, you’re a temp?”
“I’m a deputy.”
Stiles frowns. “I don’t remember seeing you around.”
“I’m new. Is there anything I can actually help you with?” Derek’s irritation is evident through the line.
This time, Derek hangs up.
Stiles calls two nights later, and ignores the way his stomach flips when Derek’s voice comes over the line. “What are you doing?”
Derek sighs. “What do you want, Stiles?”
“Edna used to read me the word from her word of the day calendar.” Derek remains silent. “Well? What’s the word? Unless you rearranged her desk.”
There’s some shuffling on the other line. “Suidefenestration. It means – “
“To kill yourself by throwing yourself out of a window.”
Derek grunts. “How did you know that?”
“Uh, duh? I took Latin as an undergrad, four years. I learned a word or two. Did you not know what it meant?”
“I thought you were in high school.”
“Grad school, dude.” Stiles laughs, and hangs up.
The next time Stiles calls, he opens with, “Has my dad been eating donuts? Because either it’s that, he somehow got freaky with a chalkboard, or he’s becoming a coke addict. I’m not sure which is more disturbing.”
“I don’t spend my time monitoring the Sheriff’s diet.” Derek doesn’t bother to sound polite or nice. Stiles thinks that maybe he should complain and that the BHSD should hire a better dispatcher. But Stiles is too selfish for that.
“Go look in his office.”
“I’m not going to snoop in my superior’s office!”
“Please,” Stiles begs. “Derek, pleasepleaseplease.”
“How old are you again? Grad school, really?”
“You’re just sad that you’re not this awesome.”
TW Bingo - Whisper
"Why… Why did you do that…" he asked, his voice shaking.
The answer was barely more than a whisper “I can’t lose you.”
