i will choose what i believe - nevershootamockingbird - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
In a different timeline, Vesh rises from the ashes of the Chroma Conclave. [9962]
“I’m fucking useless, now,” he says, aiming for furious but falling short by a few fucking miles. He sounds-- shit, he sounds weary, sounds guilty, and Kash shuts his eyes against the sharp flash of knowing in Zarha’s eyes. There’s a low buzzing in his ears; he thinks he might be sick. “I can’t help any of you, and I got you all into this mess, and now--”

“And now,” she interrupts gently, hands leaving his skin before she grabs his wrist again, beginning to wind the bandages up his arm meticulously as she continues, “you let us pick up the slack. We came running into this mess on our own volition, Kash. You’ve already done your part.”

The Art of Self-Fashioning - Lomonaaeren - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
In a world where Neville is the Boy-Who-Lived, Harry still grows up with the Dursleys, but he learns to be more private about what matters to him. When McGonagall comes to give him his letter, she also unwittingly gives Harry both a new quest and a new passion: Transfiguration. But while Harry deliberately hides his growing skills, Minerva worries more and more about the mysterious, brilliant student writing to her who may be venturing into dangerous magical territory.

Shiro escapes the Galra earlier this time, and the Garrison take him away before Keith can break him free. [35,111]

“This is entirely your fault.”

“Maa, maa, Zabuza, it could technically be your fault. Whose apprentice wanted him to live and conspired to make it so?" [1116]

[Tagged as Kakashi/Zabuza, but can also be interpreted as flirty gen.]

The Changeling - Annerb - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Ginny is sorted into Slytherin. It takes her seven years to figure out why. [182,592]

[So good! Long read and amazingly satisfying. This is one fic where Ginny is not a freaking doormat; she forges her own path, by accident or otherwise, with a supporting cast of multiple strong, caring, fully-fleshed Slytherin OCs and side characters that are primarily female.]

under their own vine and fig tree - herowndeliverance (atheilen) - 18th & 19th Century CE RPF, 18th Century CE RPF, American Revolution RPF, Hamilton - Miranda [Archive of Our Own]
George Washington wants to give his newfound son the world. For now, though, he'll settle for getting Alexander back to Mount Vernon in one piece.

This...presents more challenges than he would have thought. [series; 63,452]

[Gorgeous series about G.W. being 10-year old A.H.'s actualfax dad, with all the stuffiness and emotional constipation and heartbreak and turmoil that comes along with it. Beautiful, and at times hilarious.]

Of Harrowed Hearts - Sable_Scribe - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
In which Naruto discovers the real meaning of the word monster, Sasuke discovers power and strength and learns the difference between them, and Sakura discovers that being herself is not as selfish as she thought.

Where Kakashi learns to fight again for what he loves, and Obito never stopped. [187,242 at 34 chapters; WiP]

[...There are no words to describe the sheer awesomeness of this fic. An epic in the original sense, a marvel that sweeps you off your feet and keeps you glued to your screen. There is no character-bashing, no character-blinders here; Naruto may be the main character, but as the fic goes on the lens widens to include every one of the Rookie 9, the jounin-senseis, several elite-jounin, a few missing-nin and most of the tokujo. It is riotously funny in parts and heartbreakingly sad in others, with a continous thread of friendship woven throughout the entire tapestry. IT'S A WIP, BUT DON'T LET THAT STOP YOU.]

In Defiance of Reason - metisket - Fullmetal Alchemist [Archive of Our Own]
“Yeah, yeah, I know. You’re doin’ your best. It’s just your best isn’t quite good enough, Colonel. So while you’re doing whatever the hell it is you do, I’ll be here cleaning up after you.” [4391; first in the Demon Alchemist series, 88,462]
Rogue alchemists were always a lot of trouble and paperwork, but the Demon Alchemist was special. He was the kind of vigilante that anyone could get behind. He never tackled situations that were morally gray; he stuck to rapists and murderers and people only a mother could tolerate. He’d been at this for three years, and by now, he was a hero to the average person on the street. They (the newspapers, not the military) had given him the title Demon Alchemist in honor of his tendency to transmute demon-shaped rocks and hurl them at deserving people. It was the kind of thing that made for an instant fan following.

All of which would have been fine if he hadn’t been a serial killer. (Though sometimes the hypocrisy of that thought choked Roy to a standstill.) A heroic serial killer. What was the law supposed to do about that?

Giant headache.

Sand In The Wind - rain_sleet_snow - Tortall - Tamora Pierce [Archive of Our Own]
Kourrem bint Kemail fulfils a dream. [19,720]

[I have to say that I honestly never really got into any of the Alanna books, *especially* Woman Who Rides Like A Man, so I don't remember this character at all; even so, this series is SO GOOD FOR ME. This Kourrem is my favorite kind of character: a no-nonsense, no frills, thou-shalt-not-suffer-fools-gladly steam roller who is highly intelligent but lacking in fucks to give. She is Tortall's Leonard McCoy, and she will light you on fire if she has to.. I LOVE IT.]

Mental Scarring - blackkat - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
For an anon prompt on my Tumblr that I kind of hijacked: gai/obito tho, kakashi's utterly terrified of the two ever coming together. "I've met Gai, Kakashi, and guess what? I'm going /to befriend him/." "You wouldn't DARE, Obito." "Oh, I would. We're going to be best friends." Obito and Gai hit it off instantly, and it all goes downhill from there. Kakashi finds them making out once and it's so horrible. He's never going to get that image out of his mind. [649]

What the actual fuck is happening, no one says aloud, as a Bulstrode goes off to Hufflepuff and a Longbottom cousin goes into Slytherin. [22,735]

Quiet Like a Fight - MzMinola - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Harry Potter and the Dormitory Under the Stairs -- In which Harry Potter sleeps the whole way to Hogwarts, gets Sorthed into Slytherin, and spends his first year making friends, forging alliances, and breaking Snape's will to live. [33,796]
“How do you feel about Slytherin?”

-What?- Harry thought, startled. His stomach abruptly unknotted and he sat up straighter. -Um, fine? Anything’s fine, really. Um. Thank you?-

“Excellent,” the Hat said. It sounded…smug? Before Harry could think about that further, it roared out the name SLYTHERIN! so loud that Harry jumped.

The hall went sharply silent.

As Harry handed the Sorting Hat back to Professor McGonagall, he saw that most of the teachers at the high table behind her were rather stunned. One in particular, with long black hair that was so greasy Aunt Petunia would have fainted, looked as though he had been hit on the back of the head with a board. Only Professor Dumbledore seemed unsurprised, though thoughtful.

skywalker and sky-walker - dirgewithoutmusic - Star Wars Original Trilogy [Archive of Our Own]
anonymous asked: What if Luke and Leia were "switched at birth" (or rather, the difference is how they were split)? Prince Luke Organa? Leia Skywalker?
When she is nine, Leia sits her uncle and auntie down and, small face screwed up with determination, asks for an increase of her allowance. She has prepared points and counterpoints. She cites both local and intergalactic codes of labor law.

Her uncle frowns at her for a long minute once she’s done. She holds his gaze, stare for stare, chin untrembling, because that’s how he’d taught her to when they went to barter for parts at Toshi Station.

“Alright,” he says.

“My bedtime should be pushed an hour later, too,” Leia tries and her aunt laughs and tells her to go do the dishes.

When Leia is twelve, she organizes all of the children of local farms into a union. Their parents think they’re kidding until they hold their first strike.
