In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
Okay so like I absolutely loVE A/B/O. I really really do. I think it has to do with the fact that werewolves are my thing, and the two are very close. I really like the porn aspect, obviously, but also - the casual intimacy, the nuzzling behaviors, the protective instincts and knowing you were valued to your alpha - all of that really presses all my buttons. You can often find that in Sentinel/Guide fics, too - which is also why I'll add a Sherlock and Losers rec that are just amazing.
- Humbugs and Heart, MCU
- Hello, Heartbreaker, Teen Wolf
- Observations on Sentinels and Guides in Victorian London, Sherlock
- Kindred, The Losers
Another beautiful trope is miscommunication/misunderstandings. I love it when two idiots in love just don't talk to one another. (I love it in my fanfic, and the angst that comes with it - not so much in reality or even in movies I watch, when talking about adults who are supposed to be adults) [Also most Steve/Bucky/Tony stories use this trope and it gets me eVERY TIME]
