If you’re like me, you desperately want to read longer stories. You want to get lost in them for hours - perhaps even days - on end. You want to immerse yourself in beautiful writing, and never surface again!
Well, if that sounds like you, then here are my absolute favorite novel-length and novella-length stories from a variety of fandoms! ALL OF THESE STORIES ARE ABOVE 20,000 WORDS. Many are even over 100,000 words. Rejoice!
Saucery has posted a rec list with 1890 long fic recs, and 74 (!!) of those are from Inception, which actually makes it the 6th most recced fandom after HP, Sherlock, Star Trek, Avengers, and X-Men. Tell me that’s not impressive. I’ve copied the Inception recs directly because loading it on my phone made my browser crash, but there’s a lot of fics and fandoms so go check it out!
Artist: Zitten (짙은) Song: Zoo (동물원) Album: Hommage to Moonrise, Pastelmusic Presents (결코 끝나지 않을 우리들의 이야기)
The nostalgic-sounding legato string instrumental in the beginning sets the mood for this beautiful song. The lyrics are full of childhood memories like merry-go-rounds and zoo animals but they’re sang in such a longing tone. I love how Zitten uses the setting of a zoo to express youth and the passing of time, along with simply growing up.
