The Retirement of Gabriel Argent - Sixthlight
Gabriel took the tiger by the ears, because somebody had to, and he never had a plan for getting off. Max is somewhat more practical.
I've never even heard of this fandom before but this fic is actually lovely as is with no context, you figure out enough of the context to be going with from the fic itself.

all the ways I got to know - verity
Victor used to glance in the windows of marque studios and look at the flash on the walls sometimes, with curiosity more than longing. What would it be like to feel someone else’s soul? There are songs about it on the radio. Romantic. In his actual life, it’s always Yakov saying, “get over yourself, get more sleep, stop daydreaming on the ice.” Or it was.

Moab - Parhelion
"Whither thou goest, I shall go.thy people shall be my people."
Slash, original characters.

waited too long to bookmark this, don't remember a thing about it except that I really loved it. Reads to me like origfic since I know literally zero about the fandom in question, but works really well as such

on principle, not chance - Anonymous
Soon, the year’s longest night would choke the last vestiges of warmth from both land and men. The numerus, sequestered in the easternmost fort of Gallia Belgica, was barely a hundred miles from the frontier that had brought legions to their knees.
wonderfully atmospheric. very winter in feel, and then the warmth of the caring between the characters

there’ll be no here when you wake up - evocates
“you have learned love but not self-consciousness, because love does not beget self. there’s no need for heart and body to love; no need for mind or soul though you have both, programmed for one and grew the other like a struggling sprout in a crack on the pavement, just for him, just like him. ”

The Passenger and the Computer, in the midst of the all black everything. Time once more has meaning, and humanity must be redefined.

The Wreck at Goat's Head - Alexandra Manglis
The currents seemed to pull the empty ache out of her, as though her body were just a translucent husk. And then the sound of her heart beating inside her would remind her it was time to surface, and she would feel the slight throbbing of her body asking to live, and reluctantly, made aware again of her natural place above water, she would rise.
about a free-diver in the mediterranean. A lovely story of grief and loss and living, well-grounded in its setting.

the small - dirgewithoutmusic
Bandits came for Lalasa’s family and burned the whole farm out, except for her, because she had been at the river washing clothes. Lalasa did not miss her father or her brothers for all the long years of her life, which should tell you something about her.

She cried for them anyway, and that should tell you something too.


Retelling of Page and Squire from Lalasa's POV.

Lost Reflections - esama
Obi-Wan didn't become Qui-Gon Jinn's apprentice, and Ben didn't exile himself to Tatooine. On Bandomeer the two meet.
marked as a wip and hasn't updated in a year, but it feels like a good ending place to me so it doesn't read like a wip.

This fic is a lovely look at how being part of the Agricorps instead of the Jedi Order can actually be a /good/ thing

Essie I particularly recommend this fic to you!

Bodies in Space | shukyou
When he had counted six hundred seconds, he turned on the light again and took two pieces of paper out of his wallet.

One was a picture of Saturn, its rings, and two of its moons; that picture had arrived on earth on November 3, 1980, exactly six years, four months, and three days before Isaac was born, though it had been taken by the Voyager 1 spacecraft before that, because light took time to travel no matter where in the universe you were (at least on the scale at which humans and spacecraft operated).

The other was a list of things from Dr. Mazzy that were okay, and the third thing on the list was 'making mistakes'. He read the whole list over four times, focusing on those two words in particular. He didn't forget things; sometimes he just didn't remember to remember them.

He decided it was okay to make a mistake when he was excited, and he was excited. On Friday, Rick would be back. That made thinking about anything else difficult.
in which the pov character is on the autism spectrum, and his best-friend-since-childhood (and boyfriend now) films things, a job involving lots of exciting travel and stories

It was funny to call it normal, but life can be funny sometimes: that was what Lavender had said, and Dudley, who knew he wasn’t very clever, was bound to agree with her.

Wintertime Poem - sentientcitizen
I am dreaming of peas.

There is a shelling pea called Tom Thumb,
that tolerates the cold.
Eight inches tall.
It thrives in the margins
sets strong roots in small spaces –
but there is also a pea called Homesteader
that can handle the heat and keeps producing,
and shoulders other vegetables aside
to stretch its vines to the sky.
If I can hold them both in my hands
there will be green in my garden all summer.

Points of Origin | Tor.com - Marissa K Lingen
Most people who have reached their eighties without raising children have every right to believe that they will go on not raising them, and Judith and I were no different until the day they turned up with the social worker, neatly scrubbed and pressed inside their vac-suits and carrying cases with all their remaining worldly possessions. There were three of them like stairsteps, their black hair cut in fringes across their foreheads and their dark eyes shining out disconcertingly familiar at me. But it wasn’t until the social worker said, “Mr. Chao and Ms. Goldstein, these are your grandchildren, Enid, Richard, and Harry,” that I remembered, sheepishly, about the genes we had given all those years ago, to that nice couple from New New Prague, before they left for the Oort Cloud.
