A Most Convenient Mishap
When the clock struck three, Elizabeth felt that she must go, and very unwillingly said so. Miss Bingley offered her the carriage, and she only wanted a little pressing to accept it, when Jane testified such concern in parting with her, that Miss Bingley was obliged to convert the offer of the chaise into an invitation to remain at Netherfield for the present. Elizabeth most thankfully consented, and a servant was dispatched to Longbourn to acquaint the family with her stay, and bring back a supply of clothes.

//

Variation on canon, where Elizabeth and Darcy are accidentally assigned the same room when Jane was sick in Netherfield, and misunderstandings and a desire to avert a loss of standing in society put Lizzy and Darcy in a marriage of convenience.

It was entertaining enough. Lizzy's behavior is explained enough by her youth/inexperience and her ~secret trauma from her parents' unhappy marriage, but I was really surprised at the last bit, where instead of the story winding down, the Darcys' relationship was dealt another blow.

Throughout the story they had multiple honest conversations after their blow-ups/misunderstandings but on the very last one they had a truly emotional scene which ... was kinda boring tbh. Especially since there were no stakes at that time, considering you knew both their feelings/affection for each other. It just felt that that extra scene was unnecessarily dramatic just for the sake of adding in tension.

Crossing Paths
Author's Note: This story was inspired by the "Tempus, Anyone?" episode of "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman".

Elizabeth Darcy rolled onto her back and flung an arm across the bed.

"Oof," said her husband, opening one lazy eye. "Is that any way to wish your husband a happy first anniversary?"

She smiled and rolled onto her side facing him. "Probably not," she admitted. "But is a complaint any way to say good morning to your four-months-great-with-child wife?"

"Definitely not," he agreed, and moved forward to kiss her.

"Much better," she said when he drew away, and sweetly: "Happy anniversary, darling."

He laughed. "Happy anniversary."

//

Story: the maze at Pemberley is magick and a very pregnant Elizabeth Darcy stumbles through it one December day, to find herself in a universe where Mr Darcy has NOT married her and Georgiana Darcy is married to a truly villainous Wickham. Elizabeth of course changes that universe's Mr Darcy's life (turns it around), & eventually makes her way back to her Mr Darcy. An interesting enough diversion.

The Unwinding of Loki (19 Parts)
Unsure of his place on Asgard, Loki runs away to Midgard.

//

This is a particularly interesting fic. Premise: Odin isn't the worst dad of the year, and Loki actually loves Asgard. Loki goes to Midgard to avoid being made to wage war against Jotunheim - and thereby break the peace Odin brokered - and there accidentally joins the Avengers and creates AND unleashes a creature-between-universes that's intent on devouring all the energy of his reality.

This fic was actually REALLY well-written. I liked the plot, the characterization, the resolution, Loki's machinations, schemes, plots, and behind it, the sacrificial heart that would do anything to keep Thor alive.

But:
1. It's Loki/Thor but it's not actually. Loki and Thor barely spend any time "on screen" together, as the bulk of the fic is Loki's adventures on Midgard. Not a lot: a bunch of it is his missteps as he creates and unleashes the Serpent-between-Worlds, which calls him Father. Seriously, that was interesting, creepy stuff, and I loved it, but this is like, superficially a Loki/Thor fic.

2. This tag: "Steve and Loki could be a thing if you squint"
If I SQUINT? Bro. I don't HAVE to squint. It's right there, on the fuckin' page.

3. Again, this fic is has the tag "Arranged Marriage", but that's like, incidental to the fic. It's not what drives the fic. Which I appreciate, but I was looking for good arranged marriage fic, not plotty adventure fic with the thinnest smidgen of arranged marriage.

Note to self: Considering how much I enjoyed this fic I went to the sequel, "Through the Mirror" and looked at the last couple of chapters, to see if the payoff is Loki/Thor 'cause it had a lot of other tags. Not sure it is, so ... might skip that one.

Second chances don't have to be painful - BeneaththeBrim - 魔道祖师 - 墨香铜臭 | Módào Zǔshī - Mòxiāng Tóngxiù [Archive of Our Own]
Set in the AU from "traversing" by baekyun (baruna), in which Jiang Cheng is sent back to his teenage body and changes history.

This sequel is primarily a fluffy alternate universe getting together story for WangXian, but there is also some LXC/NMJ and WQ/Original female character.

I also explore the political implications of the power vacuum within the Wen sect following Jiang Cheng's actions.

An excerpt:

The stability of this routine, rooted in generations of tradition, spans his existence like a vast, ancient forest; it is there for him when he is six and his mother is gone for good, is scattered ashes blown far away; it is there for him in moments of stillness when he gazes into a glassy pool and sees his father peering back, so distant and melancholy; it is there for him when a rowdy boy yelps his given name, like wind rustling his leaves, whistling sweet melodies as it gushes past his many branches and trunks.

Only Wei Ying can pique his curiosity enough to climb up, out of the security of his forest, to face the wind naked, to see the world and hear its music from a different vantage.

Waiting (2 parts)
Not wanting to think on it took much, Stiles took a step forward and passed his hand between the bars, moving the bleeding side closer to Derek’s mouth.

“Not too close, he bites.”

Stiles snatched his hand away just as Derek had been about to lick at it. The snarl he got in response was not comforting.

“He what?” Stiles asked nervously, turning to Deaton.

The man looked a little amused. “Don’t worry, only if he doesn’t like you.”

“Well, he probably hates me, now!” Stiles insisted, turning back to Derek.

He looked extremely displeased.


//

Yet another 'Derek is feral' story, but it's AU so it does take a different tack. Here, Derek is ~tied to the town so he can actually influence it magically (earthquakes, storms, etc). To keep him calm (and their town safe), the town has someone take care of him for a year, and that someone is picked through the Blooding. This year Stiles is picked, and things take off from there.

I actually really liked the first two-thirds of the fic. I really liked the whole, taking care of Derek and then Stiles being a huge softy. I'm going to nitpick the denouement/ending though, it just felt like they could've just let the relationship develop further instead of sticking 2 characters in an interrogation room and having one admit 'oh, you're my mate', like ... I just wanted for Derek to take a chill pill, and then for both of them to realize their feelings for each other? Like seeing each other first outside of a 'taking care of each other because magic said so' context, and then realizing they liked each other still.

Still a fun read though!

The Nightmare Club (16 Parts)
Hermione and Ron are going back to Hogwarts to do N.E.W.T.s, Ginny isn't. Harry hasn't decided, until he has, in front of the Wizengamot and now he's responsible for Malfoy as well. A tale of enemies who learn to get along, get it wrong and get it on. Everything is purple, some things are on fire and no-one is sleeping properly. But don't worry, there's tea!

//

I needed to push myself past the first 2-3 chapters, but once I got going it was really quite enjoyable. The fic's super quiet and it's less adventures and more people trying to get over their collective and individual trauma - they were all just in a war - and, like, being friends about it. I loved the scenes with Harry and Draco just in their beds hanging out.

If there's one thing I could critique about it, it's that I wish there was a coda.

Thank you HP h/d fandom, it's 2019 and you're still producing good quality long fic.

Central City, California is beautiful, but it’s not where Johnny wants to be – and he’s not who he wants to be, either. Inspired by the recent return of Spider-Man, Johnny convinces the newly minted Fantastic Four to return to the Baxter Building, the site of the incident that gave them their powers. But not everything is what it seems, and worse yet, Spider-Man wants nothing to do with the Human Torch.

In the wake of Gwen’s death, Peter has finally put the mask back on, but nothing’s the same as it once was, and the thrill has gone out of Spider-Man. The Fantastic Four’s arrival only makes everything worse. The Human Torch is good looking, he’ll give him that much, but Peter has no plans of making friends. A series of strange attacks and a fateful encounter on the docks may not leave him much choice.

Ulysses (15 parts)
“Paperwork for the new head of Q-Branch,” Tanner said.

“Of course.” The words were like glass in his throat. Smoke inhalation was a bitch. His brain felt slow and foggy, like it was full of smoke too. “Who shall I take them to?”

M lifted one white brow. “They’re for you, Quartermaster.”


Bond and Q are drawn together by names, work, and a certain Aston Martin. In which Q is kidnapped once, Bond is poisoned twice, and Eve is a badass on at least three occasions. AKA that time I tripped and wrote 80,000 words of 00Q.

All titles unapologetically stolen from Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Didn't know what I was in for but it was worth it. The story is really quite good and I'm more in favor of this version of their relationship.

Peter Parker's Guide to Secret Identities (18 Parts)
“Oh wow, it’s the Human Torch, Johnny Storm.” MJ whispered to Peter. Peter just hummed back. Maybe it was a little childish to be upset but he totally had that thing with the weird mutant moth under control last night. Peter leaned against the wall while MJ milled around talking to people trying to figure out what the big scoop was here. ‘There always has to be a reason for an exclusive, Peter!’ she had said. Yeah, Peter thought, and the reason is Johnny Storm loves the attention. Peter fiddled with his camera. Action shots were more his thing, particularly somehow managing to take action selfies of himself as Spider-Man or a few of his supercharged enemies. Pictures of egotistical superhero’s shirtless? Not really his area.

//

So I'm going to be real. This has great potential. The banter is funny, the story is fun. But this needs like a really, REALLY aggressive beta. I mean
Peter peaked one of he eyes open and glared at Johnny

and also I'm not sure what happened or if it's a formatting issue but at some point authorperson doesn't have spaces between their full stops and the following sentence? For like whole chapters? Or maybe even the rest of the fic after one chapter?

Seriously. Beta. Needed.

The Unreformed Mr Darcy (23 Parts)

Mr Bingley has left Netherfield, and in his stead a rich but unscrupulous man takes residence of the manor. While Elizabeth is in Kent, visiting her recently married friend Charlotte, she receives letters, which tell her how Jane is soon to be wed to a man Elizabeth can't stand. And then, unbelievably, Mr Darcy, the last man in the world she would ever choose to marry, proposes to her. If she accepts, she could introduce Jane to all the eligible men in England, and rescue her from the clutches of despair. Even if the man offering, has just insulted her entire family and seems to assume that now that he has proposed, he must be accepted.
