>>"hi becca! can you please recommend some good nagron fics? thank you."
sure thing nonnie! i wanted to do well by you so i took my time with this one.
so! the nagron fic-world is a really intensely awesome one, with some really epic writers in it. it has the tendency to learn towards WIPs rather than finished works sometimes BUT that’s okay because even if you’re like me and find WIPs to be the most painful things in all of existence, there’s still plenty to read. and if you’re not like me and read WIPs, well then, you’re good as gold. (we’re ignoring the fact that i’ve read every nagron WIP in existence because i have no willpower) i’ll rec you only finished stuff for now, if you want more, just let me know!
