    ok so this was so cute to read...how guillermo and nandor were both depicted was so great, and the plot had so many fun twists and turns along the way. this rly captures the spirit of the show, and if anything, i could see this really as a real episode !!! the scenes between our favorite vampires and their adopted chimera baby were really cute too, and guillermo finding out abt his sexuality was written so realistically and beautifully too -- i also loved how nandor's past was delved into as well, and I need to see more of khosrow, who btw I know is kind of a jerk, but I'm crushing on him he's best boy. read this if ur a fan of what we do in the shadows in general, or if u just craving a cute monster/vampire romance (fuck u Stephanie meyer: kyrilu's portrayal of nandor / guillermo are and will always be a hundred more times better than whatever the fuck bella and Edward are)

    Summary

    After his father's death, Draven Kondraki sets out to discover more about who he once was.

    (Shameless fanfic of thefriendlyvandal's Portraits of Your Father, which in turn started out as a fanfic for my character Draven, who until POYF had not officially appeared on site. We have some inception going on here.)

    (Posted here as in my opinion it's a little too fanfic-ish to pass as a Tale.)

    ok so i had sm feelings while i was reading this. the author just portrays kondraki and draven so good, so humanly and so real and viscerally, and if u want some good scp fanwork off site, i'd def recommend this. everything comes back together to make this beautiful cycle of legacy and love given even subsequently after death, and the themes of family and grief are explored so beautifully (also kudos to the author for exploring the kondraki fam's jewish identity as well). this would be such a great tale if it was published onto the wiki itself, and no doubt it is a great fic too -- got me more invested in benjamin kondraki and draven as characters, and keep in mind i usually am not that interested in the doctors side of the fandom (stan scp 076 and 073 rights forever !!!). the writer's use of language and prose is amazing too

    “She was saved from that debacle of a conversation when another customer walked in. The guy looked about ready to jump out of his skin at any moment. ‘Uhm, hi, welcome to the bread bank. How can I help you?’ His gaze suspiciously wandered around the room, which was quite honestly very close to caving in on itself. ‘Hi, do you sell… brioches?’” im so glad i became a tarrlok stan for this. but srsly audrey is iconic, and her writing is iconique as well — we stan her so much !!! this is such a great crack fic; loved how everything was set up for the meme and i literally found myself loudly cackling as i read this fic so much that my auntie in the next room got startled bc she thought i was choking on something (im not joking around btw this actually happened). this is such a hilarious, fun, and cleverly-written read, and def check it out if ur tired of some of the more serious feels-sy stuff in atla fandom, or u just want to see a good depiction of the bloodbending brothers thats not an am*rra or k*rrlok (or something incest-y bc surprisingly THOSE do float around for some reason) fic

    Summary

    ❝ Ex hoc momento pendet aeternitas ❞ (Eternity is hinged upon this moment.)

     

    Salomé came from an old aristocratic family in which the first-born daughter inherits a special power that would allow her to travel in time, to the past. It was her older sister, Madeleine, who was supposed to get it, not her. Suddenly, in the middle of Madeleine’s birthday party, she disappears, only to find herself in another period of history

    When she manages to return to the present - France under the rule of Emperor Napoleon III - she is sent to accompany her uncle in his expedition to Egypt as his personal assistant. Unexpectedly, she is thrown into the past once again, but this time, she is in Egypt during the Crusades. When Frankish knights come to her aid, she is brought back to Jerusalem against her will. Thinking they are helping her, they are causing her more trouble. She must find a way to head back home, to present-day. Admitting that she comes from the future is not an option.

    Summary

    He can fight well, but he is no scholar—not like Zelda. Zelda, his best friend, the cleverest, most brilliant person he knows. Zelda, who grew up on books the way Link grew up with a sword in his hand.

    But they’ve fought Ganon and won, and there’s so much to do, now— to learn, to try in new ways. Link thinks there is no harm in reading Zelda’s books—in learning about the world he lives in beyond simply living in it.

    Reading her books turns into an interest in poetry, for he can’t help being stirred by old Hyrulian sonnets, more so than any other texts.

    His unexpected newfound interest in poetry turns into an exploration into writing some, for the hell of it. He isn’t very good at it—no, they’re not good poems. But they are sincere, if nothing else.

    Of course, he’d never show Zelda his poetry. Not when so much of it is about her.

    nita's writing on here is just. like the most beautiful prose u will ever read ??? it reminds me sm of hans christian andersen stories, and reading it feels like drinking a warm bowl of soup or getting a really great hug. zelda and link's romance have always been one of the most important part of the zelda games, and here it's put on this beautiful forefront. the devotion, tenderness they feel for each other is so human, yet still transcendent in a way, creating a beautiful dynamic. you will cheer and celebrate with them in their happy moments, pine for zelda the way link does, be moved by interactions between the main couple and the other leads. already i can't wait for more, and this is one of the greatest fics i have read for a long time; do urself a good favor and check it out urself !!! it is such a beautiful, moving piece of art and i cannot stress this enough (also go check out some of nita's poetry and other creative work on tumblr !! esp her other sonnets of fic/poetry inspired by the loz series zelda writes to link; its also vv beautiful too)
