Two of my fave boyss
Me myself and I
It's all about me
[In the Flesh]1. In the Flesh

I love both Rick/Kieren and Kieren/Simon, but i prefer stories that focus on the non-romantic relationships on the show. Friendships, but especially family relationships. That and a further worldbuilding beyond what the show already gave us, and what it's like to be a PDS sufferer in the ITF verse

2. Lucifer

Lucifer is one of the rare cases where I like a character who can be a bit of an asshole like Lucifer, the main difference of what makes Lucifer work, is that he feels like a child who is starting to learn boundaries, morality, and is struggling to grow up. Which is why his relationship with Linda is as important to me, as the one he has with Chloe. I don't mind Chloe/Lucifer so much, but I prefer for it to be platonic, at least until Lucifer is grown up enough to be with her.

Luciferr's relationship with Amenadiel is one of my fave parts of the show, that mix of love, annoyance and hate is just fascinating to me. Combine that with some Amenadiel/Maze and a heavy dose of Trixie, and you have a big part of what makes the show awesome.

[Underground]3. Underground

One of my fave new shows of the past few years. I love that though the show doesn't shy away from the horrors of slavery, that it never makes the black characters mere victims. These are heroes who struggle for their selfworth, freedom and happiness. Showing their strenght, desire for freedom and humanity, and I'd love any story that reflects that.

[izombie]4. iZombie

I love Clive, I love every single character on the show, but especially Liv and Clive, and there are just so few fics that focus primarily on the relationship between the two of them. Whether it's romantic or platonic, I don't care, long as it has the two of them. And of course, can't forget about Ravi, and Liv, or Peyton and Liv, or any of them together and... I just love the frienships on this show.

I'd adore anyone willing to give me a story that has Clive dealing with the reality of zombies, and how one of his best friends is a zombie, and what that means to him. I'd also love to see more of his private life, and why he likes to keep it seperate from his job.

[sky high]5.  Sky High

The sign up page didn't allow me many characters to choose for this movie, but Warren, along with Will, is amongst my faves. I'd just like to see something that focus on how the school works, what their lives are like after they graduate, how this world deals with superheroes, and  how it interacts with the 'real world'


Hug a Spike
I've been a bit out of sorts for the past month or so. So, sorry if I don't respond to things as I should or when I try to distract myself with things.

When I was newborn, my mom had to stay in the hospital for a while, so I was sent to stay with my aunt Gisele and uncle Herman for the first few weeks of my life. (my dad's not really the kind of guy you make watch a baby, period ;-) )

That's when it started. Most godmothers and godfathers are these nice people who give you nice presents and you read them a new years letter once a year and that's that. I was luckier than that. My real godfather didn't really care to make a difference, don't think I've ever seen the man past the time I was a toddler. But instead I got my uncle Herman.

Nonk as I called him, was (and still is)  a flawed man, big, strong, but likely to say stupid racist crap and homophobic nonsense, or anything else that he knew would piss me off. He woudln't mean it, not seriously, but he had this idea that pissing me off was funny. He'd be the kind of guy that'd start tickling you worse, when you begged him to stop. Or who'd try and annoy the hell out of you when he knew he was affecting you.

If this were any other man, I'd probably write him off.

But here's thet hing. Nonk was also the guy who'd soothe my tears when I was bullied in school. Him and auntie were the ones who'd give me all the attention that a kid needed. When my mom was working till I was in elementary school, auntie would come babysit us, and she was the one there for us, and me specifically when I needed her. Her and Nonk.

They were the ones I'd sleep over at, at least once a week, most of the time, I woudln't fall asleep, unless they'd let me sleep in between them, only to then wake up in my own bed in the morning.  (and yes, I did spend enough time at their home, that I had my own room at their place at least until I was over eighteen and their son, my cousin was born.)

I was one of four kids at home, and often needed more attention than my mom could give me, but when I needed it, auntie and nonk were there to do so. Hell, when I was sick, my mom would tell me to go to bed, at most give me a bucket and that was that. My aunt on the other hand would take me to stay with them, let me stay on the couch during the day, and give me a bell to call her or nonk if I needed something.

If I got in trouble, I didn't call either of my parents, I would call Nonk and he'd come save me. Even as a teen or an adult, when my bike had a flat tire, he'd come save me, when my moped broke down, same thing.
Bad snow weather on the way to work? A call to Nonk and with a bit of grumbling he'd get up at five in the morning to drive me to work, even when he was working a late shift that day.

So when a guy like that, who was more of a father to me than my own father gets sick, then it doesn't matter how much he grumbles or nags, you do whatever you can to be there for him. Even if it means daily visits to the hospital, to the point that most of the nurses spent at least some time thinking I was his daughter. Hell, when it was just the problems with his feet, I was probably a more regular visitor than Bart was. (Bart is their son an my nephew) He's a diabetic, and lost half of one foot, and several toes ont he other in the past few years.

Sometimes, when more than I'd like, he'd say crap I utterly disagreed with, and he'd nag even more than my mom does, I'd have to struggle to hold in my temper. But there's some people you just put up with that from. No matter how annoying it gets.

Over a month ago he had one of those few weeks/months that the hospital would let him go home. He wasn't entirely right yet, but he was tired of being in the hospital all the time and got them to let him go home, with bi weekly visits to the hospital. During the night he must have gotten up, felt ill, and needed to go throw up. he was on the couch downstairs, watching television, possibly fell asleep there, or it happened earlier, we're not sure.  He didn't reach the toilet, started throwing up before he got there. Our best guess is that he slipped over the vomit and hit his head. The doctors say he has three brain contusions. My aunt didn't find him untill the morning. She noticed he was out of it, but didn't instantly realize how serious it was. She called the doctor, and instead of to the usual hospital, he was taken to intensive care in Lier.

I can never begin to say how much it hurt to sit there on the second time I went to visit (which I could only do in the weekend, due to how hard it was for me to get to Lier on the visiting hours), and have him not even realize who I am.
Once he was stable he was taken back to Herentals, where he is now. During his first week there, the doctor responsible for the department he was in, said there was nothing to be done, they even mentioned that if he'd die, that they wouldn't do anything to bring him back. Luckily for all of us, he was removed from that floor and sent up, back to the fifth floor. The floor where he knew all the nurses, because he'd been there in various rooms for the past two years. Within a day he improved.

Last week, for the first time since the accident, he remembered my name again. He still doesn't remember everything, and he keeps forgetting things. But most of the time, he 'seems' himself again. But he isn't.
It's hard to explain what it feels like when you're happy he's actually angry at something. Even if it's something as stupid as us refusing to remove the board on his chair, that serves both to hold his food and keep him in his chair. But to know that he remembered what happened and why he was angry over it for the past two days is a huge improvement over the past month.

I miss my uncle, and as much as it annoyed me, I want him to start nagging again. To hear him say ' be careful', and have it be more than just an instinct, something he's always said. Something that would make him ask me to call as soon as I arrived, after driving back home to my mom and dad's place when I was a kid. It's weird to call one place home, when auntie and nonk's place was just as much my home as my parent's place was.

I just want him back, whining, annoying, infuriating, irritating and overly protective as he's always been.

I was trying out a tutorial I found in a photoshop magazine, and figured I'd make it with Jensen, instead of with the picture on the CD.

Think it came out pretty well :-)

Summary: Three years ago Jensen Ackles had been a feral beta, caged and dangerous to anyone around him. Three years ago the council sent Jared Padalecki and his team into the Two Forks pack to find out the truth about the claims of beta abuse and neglect. What Jared found was a vicious fight to take the pack away from the Alpha and mated to the feral Pack Beta.
Jensen was sent away to heal but Jared stayed behind to clean out the pack and see if it was worth saving. After three years though, Jensen is ready to go home and confront his past. Jared is hesitant but after their reunion at a Beta Right’s conference, he agrees. It isn’t a smooth journey though and not everyone is happy to have Jared as the Alpha of the Two Rivers Pack. When outside forces try to tear their fragile pack apart, will they be strong enough to stand together? Or will Jared and Jensen fall apart, and take the Two Forks Pack with them?

Cause of death still to be determined.


Pretty sure she wasn't even thirty years old.

My brother and his girlfriend just had their first baby. The poor dear was born almost three months early.

The newest member of the family will be called Jasmien, and weighed only a little over a kilo. But she's under good care so hopefully she'll be fine.

I'll describe 10 pairings that I like in one sentence or less, and you try to guess which pairing I'm talking about. Some are canon, but not all are. All pairings are two people, unless marked "OT3". :) At least one pairing is an RPF pairing, but I'm not telling which one(s). ;)

1. Her obsession with him started out of a sense of guilt, it turned into love where he supported her until he found out the truth. Now they've both been violated by the monster that destroyed her.

2. She's a survivor, an abandoned child, who is finally finding what she's meant to be, he was a child soldier forced into a destiny he never asked for. They found companionship in one another. (Finn/Rey, Star Wars)

3. She's the last survivor of a world long gone, he's the best friend of her last remaining relative, they are one another's strenght when they need it most

4. They were childhood friends, brothers in arms, until one of them was taken and turned into a weapon, it was only their love for one another that brought him back. (Bucky/Steve, Captain America, mcu)

5. They are both sons of neglectful fathers, given far more responsibility that any person should have to carry at too young an age, now they find strenght in one another to keep going

6. One is a kid who had to grow up way too fast, take on far too much responsibility and become a leader when no one, himself included thought he was ready for it, the other is a dark broody anti-hero with a tragic past who finds redemption and inspiration in a young hero's desire to be more than a monster.

7. A Broken young man who didn't dare to truly live until after he died, found love with a religious fanatic who finds a new purpose when he denies his cult leader's demands (Kieren/Simon, In the Flesh)

8. One is a leader who's closed herself off from all the pain and suffereing she's been through, he's the saracastic monster who finds himself inspired by her to be a man. (Buffy/Spike, BTVS)

9. One is a dark broody hero, the other is an ancient who manages to see the world into a new light, both find new ways to see the world through one another

10. She is a demon, he's an angel, both are forced to work together towards the same goal for different reasons. (Mazikeen/Amenadiel,Lucifer)

Hoping these are somewhat clear, though not too obvious.

Edited to make the genders on 10 a bit clearer

Author:Hunters Retreat
Artist: liliaeth
Title: Choices
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: NC-17 for violence and overall themes.
Word Count: 25K+
Warning: Slavery, mentions of past rape, past non-con/dub-con, torture,
Summary: Jensen Ackles was a man on the run. Sure, his name was revered by the Sentient Android Rights Movement, but he was just another face in a sea of J-N_S56s. He had won his freedom in a court of law, but his previous Mistress and Master cared little for the law. Jensen had been on the run for almost ten years and he'd stayed free because he was smart and kept to himself.

When Jensen met Jared, he tossed him out the door as soon as he could. Jared wasn't pushed away so easily though. Jared came back but unfortunately, so did Jensen's former mistress. On the run with Jared at his side, Jensen struggles with his emotions, and the fear that his programming might be taking over. Jared is far more tempting than anything Jensen has ever faced. How can he keep them both safe when he's fighting with himself while on the run from the people who want to put him back in a gilded cage?
