The People: Open the Gates by Parhelion
Twyla was never one to sit with her hands neatly folded in her lap, not even while waiting for magic.
Reccer's Notes:
This story follows on from "Captivity" in The People: No Different Flesh. Twyla is the protagonist in that story, and this one follows her life after the end of it as she grows and finds herself and eventually reconnects with Francher -- who has undergone his own journey, but we only get bits and pieces of it. The author has both Henderson's authorial voice and the flavor of the period (mid-20th century America) down cold, which makes it even more of a delight to read.

Lois McMaster Bujold's 5 Gods Universe: The Maul of the Weald by Parhelion
Author's Summary: The odd loves of man for man had their place, of course, but that place was not serving the Father of Winter.

Summary: The OMC, Learned Edric, a Divine of the Father returns home and must deal with his romantic feelings for his friend, Learned Lewko, a Divine of the Ba****d, only to discover that they are mutual.
Reccer's Notes: In my opinion, this is the best Chalion fanfic around (if not the best fanfic for any of Lois McMaster Bujold's books). Certainly, it's the one I've reread the most. Parhelion captures her tone and style excellently. Don't let the author's summary put you off—which upon rereading the summary I just realised would now put me off! A quick note: the 5 Gods in this universe (Father, Mother, Daughter, Son and Ba****d) and their clergy are not parallel to God and clergy in our world.

One of the things I really like about this fic is because of the worldbuilding, neither Learned Edric or Learned Lewko have to choose between their calling and their relationship; instead, this fic is about two old friends starting on the path to becoming lovers and they just happen to be Divines.

If this was the only fic in this fandom, I would be happy.
