I wanted to share some of the fics that I really loved. What I'll be posting here are fics that made my heart flutter, or my soul ache, or my body double down from laughters. I tend to read about all pairings, but I'm very picky about stories with some of them. Plus, I'm obviously going to read more fics about my favourite ships, so I apologise for a possible lack of variety.

Please note:
+ The order is alphabetic.
+ A star means that that fic was written for me.
+ Where either the genre, warnings or summary weren't provided, I tried to fill those fields myself. (For summaries, I took the first sentence of the fic.)
+ This list is leisurely updated (read: when I remember to), so please do come back to see what was added in the meantime. (Last update: 2017.04.21)
+ If you find any mistakes, please don't hesitate to tell me.

My comment (could be spoiler):Just the fact that it has my favourite OT3 says it all, but this has my favourite OT3 and an oblivious Aiba being played by both Sho and Jun. It's just hilarious to think how Aiba is being played into the whole thing (oh, but he isn't shy about it either, the old fox) and how their whole relationship comes to life. Also this has sexual innuendos (gotta love those puns), Sakumoto bossing Aiba around, Sho in a wet t-shirt, Aiba misunderstanding stuff, and Junba fluff. And Sho telling Aiba he's a good boy. I will always be weak to that.

You just flooded my email for referencing my fics :D :D But thank you so much for recommending them. (And I just saw your comment about "Door to Heaven". That one will always have a special place in my heart, I don't think I can write anything like it in the future!).

you're not talking about MY fics, are you? Also, I might have to disagree with you right there. Reading it again, I think the kiss Nino shared with Sho was, um, better than the kiss he shared with Ohno (sorry, baby leader, I still love you and Nino together, no offense meant) but that's just me. :D

My dear! I'm sooo happy to find these two fics of mine listed here! ^^
These stories are really sad, I know it, but in the same time they're probably the most 'realistic' ones I've written so far and perhaps that's why they have a special place in my heart!
I'm really glad you enjoyed both of them so much! <3
