Having met one too many descriptions of brown and black skin that begin and end with food items like nutmeg or chocolate or coffee, I went looking for more ideas. Here is one link. Not all of them are gonna work obvs but for gods sake lets widen our repertoires.
Just as long as you don’t use them for eye colors. :V
whyever not? Especially considering the avalanche of emerald and sapphire eyes I’ve had to wade through?
That avalanche of emerald and sapphire eyes is why not.
Then again I haven’t run across sparkling carnelian eyes in horribad fanfic yet, so let’s run this into the ground!
There are at least 30 gems to choose from in that link. And considering the fact that getting fans to write fanfic about POC characters is like pulling teeth, and convincing the publishing industry to publish books featuring POC has been a several hundred year old war in the West, to say nothing of the unseating of racist depictions of us, I find myself unable to worry about the idea of overuse at this point. And even then, for once, we’ll be having positive depictions of us. Bring on the overuse.
I am going to be overusing the fuck outta these!

Top 5 favorite fan fics?@somethingbeyondprecious
oh girl, too many to name. and i tend to stick to a few fandoms in regards to fanfic (like i love community but i don’t read community fanfic, same with mad men, the walking dead, i’ve read like two true blood fanfic, etc.) imma try this tho.
1. The Exile - Lawd have jesus this fic is actually EVERYTHING. and no i’m not saying that because alia is my homegirl. it’s truly amazing. i don’t think you need too much background knowledge of merlin’s guinevere and arthur, but youtube a few of their scene if you must. if my arthur hating ass love this fic (and i LOVE this fic), you’ll love it.
2. Bewitched - i should have rec this to you when you finally jumped on the klonnie bandwagon. i think it’s a must read for all klonnie fans. this is what officially got me on board. it’s the holy grail of klonnie fic.
3. Shirley the Vampire Slayer: In Cold Blood - okay, so i don’t read community fanfic, but i did read this one and it’s amazing and shirley is kickass and the study group is highlighted as a whole and that’s all i want.
4. Notes on a Scandal - i’m not even highlighting this particular story per se (although this is my current fave from jazzy) but every single story she’s written is aces. every single one. click on her author tag and just read until your heart’s content. and while you do keep a thought out for her.
5. The Spice of Life - so i don’t even know if this is my favorite gwen/morgana fic. however, it’s one of the first merlin fics i read when i got into fandom and it kept me here, it’s pwp, and it’s all the gay fic. i mean, what else do you want?
yeah i so didn’t have time for this. but i hope you enjoy them!
