In The Recombination Hypothesis, Sheldon declares that Zachary Quinto can live long and suck it. But then, in The Love Spell Potential, he sees Zachary Quinto a weird, wonderful, unrepeatable event. What could have possibly changed his mind? Possibly a certain neurobiologist and a Valentine’s Day spent eating a pizza and watching “one of his beloved Star War Trek things”…
You know, I’ve always wanted to write the most awkward Shamy sex ever. And my desire to write it so bad is going to finally make me do the freaking story that I had in my mind for the last few weeks. Anyway, I’m just rambling. Feel free to ignore me. :)
Five Times Sheldon and Amy Didn’t Meet
Story compilation by Lionne6, XMarisolX, Foxphile, xLostInTheSun, WeBuiltThePyramids, and Musickat18.
Read the awesome stories here, in case you still haven’t noticed the wonderful occurrence on the shamy filter in ffnet:
The Homeostatic Adjustment has updated. Listen to this while reading that. End result- lying on the floor sobbing grossly with feels.
So, yeah, I was minding my own business and wondering what’s the problem with the servers of my fansites when a new chapter of Vegas Interpretation showed up.
I was already wondering on this one part of the story when the ending came up.
“Hey, Sheldon left his notebook here. You wanna get kinky and find out what turns Sheldon on?” Penny asked Leonard in a seductive voice.
“That’s the last thing I want to know. Let’s just go to bed. We have an early morning ahead of us,” Leonard said as he made the bed.
“I want to know,” Penny said as she flipped through the pages.
“It’s your funeral.”
She passed question eight, question nine, and there it was –the answer to question ten.
“Oh, my god,” Penny whispered to herself.
“What is it?” Leonard had to know, too.
Penny held up the notebook.
GO READ IT I DON’T WANT TO SPOIL IT!
I CHOKED ON A TOMATO AND ALMOST FLIPPED MY LAPTOP
I’VE NEVER BEEN THIS EXCITED SINCE THE TAPING NIGHT OF LOVE SPELL POTENTIAL!
Shamy one-shot thingy after the break.
Sheldon telling Amy how he feels when she attempts to leave him.
awww :’) So beautiful.
subita morte exstingui, by Coins Compressed
Summary: Sheldon is dying. In the realms of fiction, Amy finds death romantic, but in reality it’s a different story.
Status: Complete - One shot - 3378 words
Why you need to read this fic: Because it’s painful and will leave you dead on the floor, but in a good, beautifully written way. It’s really hard to write about deathly illnesses without versing into pathos and big clichés, but this completely in character one-shot manages to stay true to Sheldon and Amy and to treat Sheldon’s fate tastefully. A must read.
Shit. I’m reading it again, and I’m sobbing again.
Summary: (1) After being away for two years, Amy is in town to take care of some business. Meanwhile, one theoretical physicist has a decision to make that will affect his career… and entire life. (2) Sheldon and Amy wrestle with the increasing demands of modern life and family, but an opportunity comes along that may finally make their dreams come true. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang face major life changes as well.
Status: Both Complete - 74,446 words + 186,112 words
Why you need to read these fics: I can’t tell much about The Connubial Catalyst for I would be spoiling a lot of The Gamete Indeterminacy, but just know that the second part is even better than the first. Out of all the Shamy writers out there, Marisol is perhaps the best one. She portrays their relationship exactly the way it should be: with little, delicate, intimate strokes that give away the bigger picture without plunging you in a pool of overwhelming, fake feelings. Sheldon and Amy are completely themselves, and their love isn’t flaunted in our faces like it often is in stories with huge dramatic storylines. And this is nothing short of genius, because these fics do contain their fair share of huge dramatic storylines. But they’re dealt with the way they should be, and you’ll finish these fics with a satisfying taste of perfection in your heart.
Not to do any overstepping because this is just so lovely, but if you all really are going to begin with this Shamyverse of Marisol, you could also start with The Coitus Consideration, where it all started. :)
Shamy AU (taking off from longlivetheshamy): On the first day of Private Hofstadter’s duties after taking the blame from the newspaper mishap, he was surprised to see Private Cooper in the mess hall and was already half a bucket done with peeling the potatoes. Sheldon insisted that he wanted to help him since it was originally his fault that Leonard got in trouble.
“Although, I leave the latrine duty up to you.”
“Hey, I thought you wanted to pay me back?”
“I did, but I didn’t mention anything about taking care of other people’s businesses.”
Grumbling, the smaller man started working on the rest of the unpeeled vegetable. Every piece or so, Sheldon would comment on his work and point out how there’s still some eyes left on poor Hofstadter’s potatoes.
The two men worked together in companionable silence until only a sack was left for them to do.
“Hey Cooper, how is she like?”
“How is who like?”
“Your gal back home. Well not exactly back at home since based from that paper you ripped from the captain’s stack, she’s now on tour all over the country.”
“Oh, you mean my Amy?”
“Yeah. How is she like? You know, besides what the article said.”
Sheldon paused, a smile playing on his lips. He gingerly placed the half-peeled potato on top of the finished ones then wiped his hands with a dishcloth before taking out his wallet. He took out a folded piece of paper and showed it to his new buddy. It was a picture of Amy that she gave him before he left.
“Wow she’s very lovely, Cooper. You’re one lucky guy.”
“I know.” He finally let himself go and smiled before continuing, “Never will I meet another woman who’s as smart and as beautiful as her. She’s the very reason why I need to get through this war.”
I was minding my own business and then I saw this shit on my email:
A new review has been posted to your story.
Story: Back to December
Chapter: 1. Chapter 1
:Look at me! Look at ME! LOOK AT ME I’M BETTER THAN EVERYBODY!
Look familiar? It should! It’s what you Shamy fans look like when you go around bashing Shenny fans. You become narcissistic assholes who believe that if someone doesn’t like what you like; they’re delusional… Really? Delusional? That’s what they called Einstein and Obama…
This isn’t a bashing post… This is a Shenny fan doing what you little pricks do to us, but better… I want to show you how fucking stupid you look commenting as a guest and making your whole fandom look like an immature, cowardly asshole. That’s tight! ONE FAN can make the whole ship seem like a
group of dickholes! STOP BASHING OTHER SHIPS! The internet is full of people who have different views! I know… It’s hard to find out you aren’t the center of the fucking universe, but deal with it!
This is not just a Shenny fan waving a white flag… This is a fan of TBBT wanting OTHER FANS of TBBT to stop and realize that we love the same show just with different eyes. That too much to ask? Really?
First off, I’ve not updated my fanfic for months. I stopped writing since I don’t even know when and I’m just a reader nowadays.
Second, I rarely review. I’ve been bitten by the lazy bug. So, please forgive me.
Third, dammit I DON’T EVEN FREAKING READ SHENNY FANFICS. Why would I even DARE go read their story and then REVIEW ANONYMOUSLY? I can’t even find time to review my favorite fanfics, so why would I waste time sending anonymous stupid reviews on their stories.
Fourth, I have no idea who’s doing this on both sides. Pot-stirring much?
Fifth, this is the most juvenile thing I’ve read. The intent to “save” their ship is good-hearted but this is such an asshole way to do it. I’ve stopped minding the other ship’s business. So, do you think this would hurt me so badly?
And wow, the warrior angel of the big bang theory fandom. Seriously, please.
So, if ever you get this comment, which I suppose has been reaching every tbbt shamy writer/reader in fanfiction.net who has an account or has written one story, don’t be so offended. Why feel guilty when you’re doing nothing against them?
But bear in mind that if you’ve done something like that, please, stop that. It’s juvenile nonsense. No matter what you’re shipping, don’t even comment on their stories if you don’t like them. End of story.
BTW, I’m not deleting this on my reviews. It’s too enlightening. I feel like a saint has touched me and I feel so holy.
