2018 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Update #2

This is a challenge set by Caro @ Cat on the Bookshelf, and you can find out more about the rules etc. in my sign-up post.

Cat notepaper on desk reading '2018 Fanfiction Reading Challenge Hosted by Cat on the Bookshelf'

This quarter I read 96 fic-chapters.

Combined with last quarter's 63, that's 159 fic-chapters. (I hope. That's what the calculator said anyway.)

My goal is 300-399 fic-chapters (the Tuxedo Cat level!) so if I keep to this rate for the 2nd half of the year, I should make it!


Caro's changed the link-ups a little, so after this update, there won't be another until the end of the year, when you can see whether I actually managed to do this or not! XD

The only fics I recommend are those that I've featured in Friday Fics Fix - the rest are read at your own risk, because I read some real trash.

I've marked 18+ for graphic sexy-times, and CONTENT WARNING for fics with particularly graphic scenes, e.g. related to suicide attempts, depression, rape etc.

(This time around there's a lot of these... I blamed myself briefly before I remembered that this is fanfiction and most of it is 18+ if we're being perfectly honest!)

I've only marked what I REMEMBER as being graphic/sexy-times.

And of course you may have different definitions as me - so PAY ATTENTION TO THE TAGS my dearest nerdlets! Take care of yourselves, k?
