Squad Goals - igrockspock
"We should take the general on a mission," Rose said. "One that's useful and not fatal."

“We have those?” Finn asked.

“Probably not fatal if well-executed,” Rose amended.

The surviving members of the Resistance decide the best way to help Leia is to take her on a recruiting mission to Rose's home world.

Asphalt, River, Mother, Child - Isabel Yap
The girl does not come to Mebuyen, so Mebuyen goes to the girl.

She is standing ankle-deep in the river, looking down, her mouth open. Mebuyen notices, as she draws closer, that the child’s calves are skinny, her cheeks chubby, and her SpongeBob Squarepants sando has a bullet-sized hole above her ribs. Mebuyen frowns as she steps into the river, waiting for the girl to speak.

Conservation Laws - Vandana Singh
“Ah yes, the ill-fated expedition of 2031,” he said, shaking his head. I was delighted to recognize in his heavily accented English the speech mannerisms of Bihar, the state in India where I am from. Biharis are not very common on the moon. But before I could say anything about my origins, he launched into the story behind the space-suit.

What Gentle Women Dare - Kelly Robson
When Satan himself came to Lolly, she didn’t recognize him. She wasn’t on her guard—hadn’t been for years. Why should she be? Her immortal soul had long since drowned in rum and rotted under gobs of treacle toffee. If any scrap was left, it was too dry and leathery to tempt evil. But even the most pious of parsons wouldn’t have recognized the Devil in the guise of a dead woman floating face-down in the Mersey.

To Us May Grace Be Given - LS Johnson
When I finally went in she had cleared the table and pulled the carpetbag out from under the bed. It was grey with dust; even before Da died Mam and I weren’t supposed to touch it, though I used to open it when no one was looking. It’s the past, Da would say when I asked him about it. From when we thought we knew better than God. We came here to get away from that.

The way Mam was laying things out, I knew I wasn’t the only one who had peeked inside. She didn’t even have to look, just put out the candles and the fancy drawings, and even the vials that I liked best. In your hand the stuff inside looked black, but when you held them up to the light you saw that it was really a dark, sweet red.

Beside these Mam put a knife I had never seen before, with a thick handle and two round blades folded up like a flower.

“I’ll show him,” she said. “I’ll show him my god-damned claim.”

awful and ouchy and well-written and intense

Oshun, Inc. - Jordan Ifueko
“Our job is to make people happy,” she purred, raising a playful eyebrow. “Fulfill their requests. Help them make connections.”

“Connections with their fellow eniyans,” I shot back, pointing at the Iyami Aje mission statement on my cube wall, engraved on a glittering obsidian plaque. “With their own fragile kind. I don’t work like you, Bola.” I fiddled with the ergonomic levers of my swivel chair. “I don’t just ignore the hazards of getting entangled.”

Blessings - Naomi Novik
The five other fairies scowled at her. They too were all drunk and well fed, and the meal in their bellies was taking on the sour heaviness of an unpaid debt. They had all brought trinkets for the baby, of course, all the gifts that could formally be expected by a low nobleman—which was why six of them had been invited in hopes of getting at least one blessing—but the feast had also exceeded what could formally be expected for their having deigned to grace the occasion. They could hardly refuse the cake, either—and didn’t want to—and would have a lingering sense of a favor owed.

regular miracles, just like you - Anonymous
Peter never actually sees Ms. Potts much, but he’s vaguely aware that she’s been sick or something, and as a Friendly Neighborhood Stark Intern he feels like he should find out if she’s okay.

He’s gotta admit he would not have put money on where he finds her: locked in what looks like a Hulk-proof glass cage in a sub-basement, with the Human Torch. There’s a Clue joke in this somewhere.

“Do you still paint your nails at all?” Yuuri asks.
“Yeah,” Victor says—and it’s a moment before he realizes this is a lie. He still intends to paint his nails. He still thinks of himself as the sort of person who paints his nails. But he hasn’t actually done it in years.
