MY REC LIST (updated 28 May 2013):
TRANSLATIONS (français, Deutsch)

August 14 2014, 05:34 PM



Some days I really need to silence the little voice in the back of my head that’s saying “oh, this is too self-indulgent / tropey / unrealistic, I shouldn’t put it in the story”

and remember that it’s fanfiction

and I’m writing it

so who else should I be indulging?

YEP. It’s all well and good to write high noble pieces of art meant to say Great Things about Life, but sometimes there’s just nothing like a good old-fashioned Pretend Marriage Telepathic Secret Spy AU.

Anonymous: Here it says you take prompts, so I thought I'd ask for a different pairing: Emma/zelena, what do you think? I'd lov a story where zelena is not killed and she and Emma grew close.

I am kind of toying with this idea, I’ll see if I can make it happen.

You Left Me With Nothing (But I’ve Worked With Less)


Title: You Left Me With Nothing (But I’ve Worked With Less)

Author: fictorium

Summary: So usually people write Swan Queen conceiving accidentally through magic and after a brief moment of confusion, Emma goes along with it and happily ever after ensues. But I’d really like to see a small glimpse where Emma didn’t believe Regina and turned her away.


Rated: T

Type: Drama, Romance, AU

Chapters: 1/1

Words: 5,287

Warnings/Triggers: None

Note: Pretty heartbreaking, but it’s not a sad one-shot. Emma’s an idiot as always.

Next To Normal


Title: Next To Normal

Author: fictorium

Summary: Regina and Emma have been together for well over a decade, married and living together in Storybrooke. They adopted two children: Henry and Snow. We join their lives one Fall evening, in what turns out to be the calm before a very specific storm.


Rated: M

Type: Drama, Angst, AU

Chapters: 6/6

Words: 41,563

Warnings/Triggers: Mental health issues (depression, bipolar disorder), Drugs, Attempted suicide

Note: Shit gets real in this one. The pure realism just drowns you in heartbreaking emotions. I can’t really say more than that without giving the plot away. This is an amazing story that you guys won’t want to miss out on. Be warned, it’s dark.

Anonymous: this fic in your last reblog - will it ever be finished? it's an abso-frikkin-lutely amazing story, I finished reading ch 14 like a week ago and it would just be the most awesome thing to tie up all the ends there...

I’m actually working on it now, alongside my Big Bang. I think it’s probably going to be 6 more chapters. Thanks for reading, and hopefully not much longer to wait now!

We Need To Talk About Henry


Title: We Need To Talk About Henry

Author: fictorium

Summary: We diverge from canon at the moment Cora’s heart is returned to her body, and this time not by Regina’s hand. What happens from there leads to a new Dark One, a family in turmoil and new alliances being formed to protect the most important person in all of their lives. Hey, like Hillary Clinton said: it takes a village.


Rated: M

Type: Drama, Family, AU

Chapters: 14/?

Words: 88,551

Warnings/Triggers: None

Note: SQ isn’t the main focus, although it in no way diminishes the story. What it does focus on is how Henry is raised and the problems that arise after he becomes the Dark One. It’s such an interesting premise (one that I haven’t seen before) that you can’t help but want to know more.

Dirty Dancing


Title: Dirty Dancing

Author: fictorium

Summary: It’s a Dirty Dancing AU. Soon after arriving, Regina meets Ruby and Emma, dancers at the resort who teach routines to bored families to pass the time. Befriending other employees like manager-in-training, Sidney and boss’s son, Neal, Regina is soon caught up in the lives of these people who feel like they’re from another world entirely.

Site:, AO3

Rated: M

Type: Romance, AU

Chapters: 4/4

Words: 35,221

Warnings/Triggers: Mentions of abuse

Note: Beautiful AU, beautiful SQ romance, beautifully written story with a great plot. I expected nothing less from fictorium. Dirty Dancing is one of my favorite fics. It’d be a shame if you guys missed it. Only four chapters!

Addict Fic


Title: Addict Fic

Author: fictorium

Summary: Set in season 2, after Hook and Cora have been dealt with. Regina is rattling around in her lonely life and Emma is struggling to handle the strangest year of her life, with unfamiliar support systems and too many responsibilities. Is it possible the one person who’ll understand is the person she can’t quite bring herself to trust?


Rated: M

Type: Drama, Angst

Chapters: 12/12

Words: 67,050

Warnings/Triggers: Suicidal Ideation, Gunplay, Substance Abuse

Note: A brilliantly written story looking into how Regina and Emma deal with their own separate addictions. It’s very dark and insanely true to reality. The way it’s written makes you live every emotion that Regina and Emma feel. The details are both amazing and heartbreaking. Definitely read, no doubts about it. (Unless you’re easily triggered because as I said, dark. Be careful.)
