So, you read a story or a chapter. You’ve either loved it, hated it, or feel ambivalent about it. However, there was just this one part of the piece that really interrupted the flow of your reading enjoyment. You hem and haw over leaving a review, worried that anything you say could be taken the wrong way, but all you want is to truly help the writer improve in his or her craft. Finally, you decide against it, because you just don’t want to deal with any possible backlash. So you either click out of the review feature or you leave a general “good” and move on. You’re sure someone else will tell them what they did. They’ll improve then. Someone will say it better, so why would you take the time to do it?
CHAPTER NUMBER/ONE SHOT: 49-50
FIC SUMMARY: In the third installment of the Descent series, it would seem Loki has it all, a family, friends, the peace of a home. But when that peace is shattered from within, Loki must fight to restore it, at all costs.
The little towns pass by in one continuous blur as Chase reclined in the back of the black Escalade. Even after two weeks, whenever he thought about shaking Loki’s hand, passing his muster, he felt empowered like he’d faced the biggest challenge of his life and come out the winner.
He’d been scared, he couldn’t lie to himself. Before Loki arrived, the only image Chase had retained of him had been the crazed father ready to drag his daughter bodily out of the school. When Loki finally stood before him, however, he was simply a man. A father, charismatic, serious, yes, but still just a man like himself. Brenna had warned that he was powerful, yet he’d displayed no feats of strength, he’d cast no spells, called down no hellfire. Chase thought he could actually like him if he tried.
After the visit, Brenna seemed to become more positive, cheerful even, as if a great weight had been lifted from her soul. That Christmas had been the best one of his life hands down. They had spent Christmas eve and the whole next day together with the small group of kids who had stayed at the school for the holiday. They’d watched Christmas specials, played games with the other students, and eaten themselves into a stupor. Then they’d spent the rest of the week enjoying the break and hanging out with friends. He had almost called his father to tell him he wouldn’t be coming home for New Year’s eve but Brenna had convinced him to go regardless and he had reluctantly agreed. He hated the thought of missing the New Year’s eve bonfire at the school. As Harry held the door for him that morning when he climbed into the Escalade, he could see them building the wood pile down by the lake.
CHAPTER NUMBER/ONE SHOT: Chapter 3
WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: Loki
FIC SUMMARY: Loki has heard about a Midgardian girl who has similar powers to him, he wants to go have a look. THIS IS A FROZEN CROSS-OVER
AUTHORS NOTES/WARNINGS: Okay, this takes place before the events of Thor, Avengers and Thor: The Dark World but Loki knows about his ice powers. I know it’s a little screwy and I’m sorry. It was a thought that I had and had to write down. I don’t think that there will be many chapters but you never know.
“Who even are you and how did you find me?” Elsa asked pacing around the circular room.
“It’s not that hard actually. You’re residing in fairly large ice castle tha-“
“In the middle of the mountains!” She shouted. The walls around them turned red. Loki marveled at it. It was like the castle was a part of her being. It was truly amazing.
Title: High Hopes
Chapter #: Four
Which Tom/Character: Actor!Tom
Fic Summary: Sequel to “Friends, Lovers, or Nothing”. After cutting off all contact with Tom, Grace seems to be on a downward spiral. Tom sees that she is broken, and in the process learns he is broken too.
"More! Pour more, woman! We’re having a heart to heart which means a shit ton of wine." The vivacious blonde giggled, holding her glass out to me insistently. I could only smile and do as she asked, unable to believe where I was at this very moment. I was in Jeremy Renner’s house, sitting on a couch at three in the morning with none other than Jennifer Lawrence.
My phone changed songs, beginning to play “Let Her Go” by Passenger. Jennifer looked at me and raised her eyebrows. “You know what that means. It’s a sign. Talk about him.”
I rolled my eyes. We had spent the last few hours talking about many things. We talked about things only some girls find interesting, she told me about her boy problems, we had stalked people on my Instagram since Jen didn’t have one, and now it was my turn to talk about boy problems. Where to begin?
TITLE: A Little Night Music
CHAPTER NUMBER/ONE SHOT: One Shot
WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: Actor Tom
GENRE: General/Erotica (but no actual smut)
FIC SUMMARY: RATING: Mature
AUTHORS NOTES/WARNINGS: This story was inspired by hearing that Tom listed ‘flamenco’ as a skill on his RADA entry. The prompt was from marthabrooks06. You really need to listen to the tango they are dancing to at the club. The link below might not work as I live in France and they seem to be country-specific. However, you can just search for Por Una Cabeza, by Carlos Gardel. I am not an expert in Argentine Tango, just a fan, so I apologise for any errors or inaccuracies. This is meant to be erotic, but there is no actual smut. Not my forte, you understand.
Be careful what you wish for, that’s the cliché, isn’t it?
Perhaps I should have considered that when I was praying for a little excitement this afternoon. Was this what I had in mind? Not really. Possibly. This club was definitely part of my plans, and Patrice had said there would be single guys here. Of course, I had assumed he meant gay men, since that was what he would be looking for… I was wrong, évidemment.
Sitting in the stuffy room earlier I had tried to stretch my legs discreetly under the table, flexing my stiffening ankles. All the sitting around was driving me to distraction. I was into my seventh meeting in three days; I thought that if I had to look at another pie-chart or power-point, or worse still, drink another weak cup of coffee, I’d go insane. These annual trips are always a bit dull, but this one is turning out to be a prize-winner. It doesn’t have to be like this; when Pierre and I host our counterparts back in Paris we do our best to make it fun, or at least interesting. But this new London guy has to be the most boring man I have ever met. I suppose that’s what you get when there is a down-turn and the board gets scared: they appoint an accountant to run things. Quelle barbe!

WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: AU Tom / Business Man
GENRE: romance / erotica
FIC SUMMARY: Twenty four year old Amelia Hart has never had a boyfriend before. Not wanting to step outside of her comfort zone, she rarely starts conversations with the opposite sex and makes little to no effort in correcting her single status. However, what she did not plan was meeting a man who manages to steal her breath away at every look. A man who does not stop until he gets what he wants. And the one thing he only wants right now just so happens to be her.
RATING FOR THE WHOLE FIC: M
Author’s notes: comments would be lovely. You would think by now I would know what i’m doing but clearly I do not. Thank you for reading. I love you all.
I hope the new theme works for everyone. I will need some help in adding a search box, and that’s the only thing missing.
BUT!! We have a random back. If anyone knows how to play with the html to get an actual search box included, I’d be ever so grateful. I’ve been googling, and I have the coding, I just don’t know where to add it. I can’t find codes they tell me.
Seriously, I’m HTML stupid.
Soooooo…. with RANDOM back: Let’s revisit the random game. Do you remember?
See the ‘Random’ in the last line under the header?
Click on that button until you see a story come up (if asks come up first, which they may… just hit random again). Once you hit a story, read it, or a chapter of it; and if you like it, either let us know, add a note to the story, or EVEN BETTER….send the author a surprise ask on his/her blog telling how much you loved it.
Let’s dig into the library a little bit and see what gems we can come up with! Never know, one or two may inspire YOU to write something, something that can be the next big hit around here.
Or maybe something that will remind us of a story we once read here and loved, and want to share with others.
This will not only inspire others but will help Kris and her league of volunteers to get the archives completed! In fact, Kris tells me that she’s going to be adding on a BUNCH of archived stuff tomorrow so look forward to that.
Now, here’s the COOL PART. Ready for this? Are you sure? Okay.
Those who send in asks based on the RANDOM READ or who like this entry will be put into a RANDOM drawing for three RANDOM participants to win a very very RANDOM three paragraph drabble from one of the admins of any pairing of their liking and any first line they can come up with.
Let’s do this thing! Get random!
We’ll run this thru the end of March!
It was brought to my attention that there is someone plagiarizing authors from this blog. I have seen it for myself.

Please check out QueenofMischief13 on FF.net. She’s got various Marvel/Avengers characters and actors: 91 stories in all and I don’t think any one of them are hers. I cannot report her on FF.net as I don’t have an account there, but I encourage any and all of you that do: report her immediately. I’m going to see what I can do from my end, but this is NOT TOLERATED HERE.
We have dealt with this only twice before and within twenty-four hours the violators were taken down. I will back up any of the victims, if you need me to. Please let me know. But I’ve dedicated tonight to getting this taking care and addressed.

My phone buzzed insistently on my bedside table, but I didn’t have the motivation or inclination to answer it or to identify the caller. I was increasingly more despondent when my apartment got quiet, unable to regain my equilibrium on my days off when Terry wasn’t around. A month and a half had passed since Tom walked out of my life, taking my heart with him. The loop of our final moments together replayed in my mind at regular intervals. I couldn’t escape the memory, but I didn’t want to either. I treasured those moments, but I missed him. I told him that I loved him, and he returned the sentiment. We shared what we’d been feeling for months, and the emotion hadn’t faded since Tom left, at least for me.
I was numb, and today of all days, I wanted to wallow. Immediately after my phone ceased its vibrating, it whined with an incoming text. Mondays, my days off, were difficult days to find the will to do anything, and I just wasn’t feeling the need to move. Evening television programming droned on in the background, another source of distraction that I ignored, too lost in memories. The novel that I started back in October lay forgotten and open on my bed next to me, bookmark still in the same place. The week after Tom left, I buried myself in helping Terry prepare for his new role, took on more dance classes, more voice classes, more yoga classes. I stayed busy to keep from missing him, but when life went quiet like tonight during a blizzard and nowhere to be, I couldn’t move on from missing him.
I glanced at the blue digital readout of the time across my room, 9pm. Unsurprisingly my mind calculated the time in California as I did more often than I cared to admit to anyone, including myself. I wondered what Tom was doing at that moment, and if he was thinking of me as I did most days, all days, every hour.

CHAPTER NUMBER/ONE SHOT: Chapter Nineteen
WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: ActorTom
GENRE: Romance, comedy
FIC SUMMARY: Caitlyn Bryer is enjoying the taste of success that comes with having written a bestselling novel. But what will happen when she finally meets the inspiration for her book’s beloved hero?
RATING: M for swearing.
AUTHORS NOTES/WARNINGS: Yep, totally lied. I said two more chapters and an epilogue – two more chapters AFTER THIS and an epilogue. Not a lot happening in this chapter, just some relationship building. Plus, my little tribute to the South. As always, I’d love to hear what you think!
Their last few days in Cait’s hometown were quiet and easy. Cait stopped using outings with friends and family to avoid Tom, and the couple spent the days talking and sharing more of themselves with each other. Cait finally opened up to him about her history of insecurity without the usual glib diversions she’d always employed. The fact that he listened and talked with her about her issues without judgment or pity went a long way to soothing Cait’s lingering fears about their future.
For his part, Tom shared with Cait his own feelings about the overwhelming changes that had occurred in his life since being cast in “Thor.” She’d never realized how different things must be for him now that he was the subject of media attention, as well as such a passionately adoring fanbase. As much as he loved his fans, and as grateful as he was for their support, he admitted that it sometimes frightened him just how much he could mean to people he didn’t know. She fell even more in love when he told her that he was determined to live a life that was worthy of the faith his fans had shown him.
Cait resumed her therapy regimen, visiting her doctor once before continuing with the email correspondence that worked best for her. Even Tom was brought into the program – Dr. Mitchell sent a few questions to both Tom and Cait, sparking several in-depth conversations that went a long way to helping Cait sort through some concerns. Dr. Mitchell was optimistic about Cait being able to conquer this particular demon, but warned both of them that it would take work and open communication.

I got home to my apartment from another fantastically stressful day at work. I threw off my heels, bunched my hair onto my head and opened the fridge to pull out my half-empty bottle of pink moscato. I poured myself a rather large glass and set it on my marble countertop, and went to the cabinets to grab my pita chips. I took both items to my cushiony couch and plopped down in front of my TV to watch random comedy re-runs.

AUTHORS NOTES/WARNINGS: No warnings! The ending of this chapter is quite exciting!
Chapter 5: Christmas and Forever 21
Then I thought, before now I wasn’t ready to leave.
But now I know I’m ready.
I finally went back up to bed and Loki was sitting up with the light on, “Mary? Where did you go?” “I was thirsty, and I had a bad dream” I sat back down on the bed, “What kind of dream, I can fix you” “Na it’s not important” “Please my love tell me” I lied because I didn’t want him to know I knew what his brother looked like, “Um, I died during childbirth, you where there, I could see you and then darkness” He kissed my forehead, “Darling that will never happen to you, I swear on my life” I laid back down, and rolled off the other way. “That’s good to know, I’m going to go back to sleep” He turned off the light and rolled over by me and wrapped his arm over me. I woke quite fast as I rolled over and Loki wasn’t there and our door was open and heard people downstairs I put on a robe over my pajama’s and came out and there was tons of Christmas decorations up. I walked down the stairs, and I heard Loki talking with Madeline and my parents. But when I got to the bottom of the stairs Brian was there, “Hey Mary” I smiled, “Morning Brian” “Are you hungry?” “Of course” We walked into the kitchen, and Brian made us some cereal. After he made our cereal, he paused and just stared at me, “Mary?” “Yes?” “Are you and Leo going to get married?” I took in a deep breath, “He hasn’t proposed yet, so I don’t know about it yet” I took a deep breath, “Brian is there somewhere we could go, where you and me could talk in private without dad or mom hearing?” “Sure” We walked down a hallway until we found a closet at the end, we walked inside it and Brian shut it and locked the door.
TITLE: Under The Table.
CHAPTER NUMBER/ONE SHOT: Oneshot
WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: Tom
FIC SUMMARY: Tom is busy making a business call, Naomi decideds to make it less boring for him.
AUTHORS NOTES/WARNINGS: Heavy smut.
Naomi put her laptop down on the bed next to her and let out a sigh. Cracking her knuckles and stretching, she heard Tom out in the common room he was on his phone talking about work. She got up and walked in to the living room. Seeing him at the dinning room table, he was leaning back with his phone to his ear. Talking rather adamantly about something to someone. He glanced up at her and smiled as she walked past and in to the kitchen, she paused as she looked at him. He was leaning back in the chair, he had his eyes closed.
“Yes, see now that is what I’ve been trying to say.” He said to who ever it was on the other end. A smile came to Naomi’s full lips as a delicious idea came to her. She quietly made her way to the other side of the table; she got to her knees and crawled under it. Tom was still talking with his eyes closed having no idea what she was up to. Once she was down there she was pleased to find that he had his legs splayed open like he usually sat. That made things a lot easier on her. She gently crept between his long legs, making sure she didn’t give herself away. Now face level with his crotch she licked her lips, she could plainly see the outline of his cock in his black jeans it being painfully obvious that he wasn’t wearing any underwear. She leaned in, gently pressing her lips against his cock outline. Tom let out a surprised ‘ack!’ at the feeling jumping slightly and almost kicked her. He looked down quickly to see Naomi in-between his thighs with her lips on his jean-covered cock.

WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: Loki
FIC SUMMARY: Prince Loki is looking for a personal whore. There are many willing subjects, but he chooses Nymeria. His ego makes her sick, she wants nothing to do with him and oh he’s going to have a ball trying to break her.
AUTHORS NOTES/WARNINGS: part one is here
Just imagine this happened as if the events of Thor and The Avengers never took place. So Loki isn’t broken or whatever, he’s a prince, but he still has all the snark and handsomeness as he does in Thor: The Dark World.
Still no smut, the next part will though
and yes I named my OC after Arya Stark’s direwolf.
