I have more fic recs for you guys btw! It's a bit of a weird one since it's not anime/ recent TV series/ blockbuster movie but I seriously admire the writing style of some of these authors. Are you familiar with the works of P.G.Wodehouse? His characters are full of stereotypes and clichés- and he was an inventive man- much like what we do today, he creates new words through adding or removing prefixes and suffixes to comic effect.
Some good egs from his Wikipedia page:
👉 When Pongo Twistleton removes the housemaid Elsie Bean from a cupboard, Wodehouse writes that the character "de-Beaned the cupboard"
👉 Wodehouse created new words by splitting others in two- dividing "hobnobbing" when he writes: "To offer a housemaid a cigarette is not hobbing. Nor, when you light it for her, does that constitute nobbing."
Ok back to the recommendations! If you find this style of writing difficult to adjust to, I recommend starting out with "The Long Road" by triedunture (link in bio). There are elements of Wodehouse's style, but not overmuch and it makes for very sweet and compelling reading.
For the seasoned and indoctrinated reader, take up "Jeeves and the Amatory Dilemma" by who_la_hoop (they have also done an EXCELLENT Drarry fic, Written on the Heart- check the #yaoiloverficrecs tag for a longer brief).
In fact, who_la_hoop is the reason I got into reading these- I truly believe a talented author can write anything and without knowing the fandom/ characters, it should still work 👌🏼
"What the Well-Dressed Man is Wearing" by
malacophilous (orphan_account) is not slash, but hilariously done and written in Wodehouse's style. They are a very prolific fic writer and I have read loads of their Hannibal fics.
I highly recommend you give them a try (at the very least, the first one!) 👌🏼 I've put the link in my bio.
Feel free to message me anytime to chat about fics- I may not post like 20 pics a day but I will happily chat with everyone ☺️❤️
