angels in the architecture - zihna - Sherlock (TV), Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
John Watson is human. Humans are fragile. Breakable. Impossibly strong, too, in ways that anything that's not human can barely understand.

John is human, and so he is loyal. He has faith. But he has doubts, too, and courage. Anger and sorrow. Hatred, and love enough to spare.

John Watson is human. Sherlock Holmes is not.

(34592) They may not want to save the earth (if you ask Ramiel--seriously, they're not going to call him Thor--they should just let it rot, who gives a damn about the little planet anyway), but you can be damn sure they'll avenge it.

Or, Clint Barton finds a girl in the woods and finds out he's actually a fallen angel. Who would've guessed, right?

shooting stars, falling objects by Zihna
“Inception,” Steve says, “is an art. It isn’t like extraction—it’s not that simple. It’s deeper than that. Rawer. More intimate. Extraction is just pulling knowledge out of someone’s mind. It’s easy. Impersonal. These days we’ve got it worked down to almost an exact science. But inception, inception’s different. It’s not exact. It’s not a guarantee.”

“Oh god,” Tony says, and he’s rolling his eyes behind his sunglasses, Steve can tell. “It’s not a hot babe, Steve, stop talking about it like you want to bend it over the table and—”

 “If this is going to work,” Steve continues, ignoring Tony, “if you want it to stick, we need to know everything.”

On Boden, or the Nature of the Game
Author's summary: He doesn’t have a ‘last thought’ before going over the falls. To have one singular last thought would imply that he is only capable of having one thought at a time, which is just preposterous. He has last thoughts, certainly, ranging from “two hundred and seventy-nine meter fall into thirty meters of water, will reach terminal velocity in approximately seventy-two meters” to “oh, what a lovely draft,” but one, singular, lonely little last thought?

Absolutely not.

Or, Sherlock Holmes on chess.
Reccer's comments: With all the excitement over Sherlock season two, there have been a number of great Game of Shadows fics that have been overlooked, amongst them, this little gem.This story explores Sherlock Holmes' memories and his thoughts on the nature of chess, strategy and sacrifice, against the backdrop of his plummet into Reichenbach. It gives an interesting extra insight into the pivotal balcony scene, and into Holmes and Moriarty's strategies in general.

Author: zihna
Summray: “Raven,” Siri whispers, and the moonlight streams silver onto his scales. He’s a chameleon, a rabbit, a fluttering bird, landing on her shoulder and digging with tiny claws. “Raven, someone’s coming.” (His Dark Materials fusion.)

1. “This is why you should listen to me,” Aella mutters, smacking him in the head with one ragged wing.

Nick Fury glares, but she has a point. Unfortunately, the safety of the planet comes before his personal preferences (such as, say, going a day without a Stark-induced migraine) so her point is moot. He tells her so, and she hits him again.

“Tony fucking Stark,” he growls.

“Actually, it’s Barton this time,” Aella says. She clacks her beak. “We could always blame Stark, though. There’s a good chance he’s done something.”

This is true, and the possibility of yelling at Stark brightens his day. And then he looks at the paperwork left by Barton’s mess and Aella laughs at him.

The story of daemons, and intercision, and souls, and how a ridiculously soft, trusting, naive telepath named Charles had an eagle daemon, and how an idiotic, stupidly fearless martyr named Erik had a tiger, and how the world feared them for it.

light up, light up - zihna - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Charles doesn't really care what his daemon chooses to be. Raven just wants it to happen. Erik has forgotten what it's like to have a soul. Alex is running for his life. And Sebastian Shaw knows, the moment his Pele settles, they're destined for great things.

Or, five different characters and how their daemon settled.
It’s not your fault, she wants to tell Siri. I’m the freak. I’m the one who can’t settle, it’s not you, it isn’t your fault, I’m so sorry.

She can’t tell him, though, and he cowers in the mud miserably, flicking from form to form so fast it hurts to watch him.

“I’m sorry.”

Raven looks at him bleakly, and he’s a rat-dog-lion-hawk-lizard. “Will you ever settle?” She asks, and her voice is hollow.

Siri’s eyes are wide and startled, and she knows.

“No,” he says. “No, Raven, I can’t.”

Her flickering face twists into an almost-smile and she’s crying now, a little. Charles touches her mind again, anxious, but he won’t dive in and she’s grateful. She looks down at her hands and her skin shudders, blue-pink-blue.

The second story in the X-Men Daemons-Verse series. Basically a series of vignettes for how the character's settled. I really wanted a more through explanation/description of why each settled (or not) as they did; it seems like the requisite backstory and character depth is just tantalizingly out of reach.

Follows "floating in sunbeams" and followed by "from the rivers of our palms"
