You & Me & The Pegasus Galaxy - CartWrite - Stargate Atlantis [Archive of Our Own]
“Atlantis has a hook-up board?!” Rodney McKay’s initial conversational blast could be heard in every corner of the mess hall as he approached their usual table. His accusing glare skated from Teyla to Ronon and landed on John as he sat down with his full tray. “How am I just finding out about this? We’ve been here literally years. How long has this been going on? It isn’t even online, in a city where even the moppingest floor-mopping moron can write code. When were you going to tell me about this?” Rodney demanded of them all, but John especially.

John took a slow bite of his fishy sandwich. Pegasus catfish tasted like Earth catfish in every way, but the texture was off. It took a little more chewing than normal. This gave him a few extra seconds to decide whether or not to admit he had no idea what Rodney was talking about.

Teyla stepped in. “This is the board near the northwest pier?” she asked.

Ronon’s fork twirled up a load of noodles. “In the porn room.”

[The one where John finds Rodney's post-its on the hook-up board and feels weird about it.

This was terrific. Good build, characterization and writing. Somehow, someone wrote SGA fic in the year of our lord 2018. I don't know how, I don't know why, but I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. Five.]

Wayne Manor - Unpretty - Batman - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
He had made a serious miscalculation. "I apologize, Mrs. Wayne," he said stiffly, and he did not make excuses, because a butler wouldn't. A small detail, one he'd missed; who would ever notice the knot in his tie?

"Oh, no," she said, still smiling as she rearranged his tie into a Windsor knot, "don't apologize Mr. Pennyworth. Pennyworth. I just love saying it, Pennyworth. It's the sort of name you'd get out of an Agatha Christie novel. Absurdly British. Did you choose it because you thought it would make you seem harmless?"

It made his blood run cold, the way she said it. "I fear your sixth sense may be steering you astray, Mrs. Wayne."

"No, no, none of that," she chided, that same way she might say it to Bruce, "we both know I'm not psychic. Do you know what a woman's intuition is, Mr. Pennyworth?"

"I have a feeling you're going to tell me, Mrs. Wayne."

"A woman's intuition is her subconscious mind's way of telling her when a man wants to murder her," she said matter-of-factly, and though she had finished with her knot she was still holding his tie, like a leash. "That's why men pretend it's silly, you see."

[This is amazing. I wish there were even a little more of Martha Wayne in this series. So far, there is not. It is well-written, intriguing, and just a little bit discomfiting. I'm not familiar enough with the canon to say whether it's AU or not, but it is brilliant. Five.]

And like the cycle of the year, we begin again - katherynefromphilly - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
For many long years Merlin waited.

For the other part of his soul, for the other half of his life. He was born to serve Arthur. So that meant he was also born to wait. Even if it took a thousand years. Even if the wait seemed never to end.

Until one day, suddenly, it did.

[I had a slight quibble with the characterizations but this was remarkably well thought-out, paced, and made for a really enjoyable experience. Four, four-five.]

Kaleidoscope - damnslippyplanet - Firefly [Archive of Our Own]
Over time, as Serenity becomes a home, River becomes a collector of tiny things. They aren’t her own missing pieces, not quite, but they help on the days when she is all shards, all knives.

[When you can't control yourself, you control what you can, instead. Three-five.]

our golden age - augustbird - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Wherein Bucky is the crown prince and Steve still becomes a hero.

[Took me three days to read and sometimes I had to put it down and walk away because I was getting so wrapped up in the upset. Really well-plotted (after the first half), enormous epic story. Felt like two different stories that were merged, though it worked for the fic. Four-five.]

Mutiny on the Reliant - WerewolvesAreReal - Temeraire - Naomi Novik [Archive of Our Own]
It's bad luck to have a dragon aboard a ship, and this tiny black creature can't be natural at all. Slowed by a gale and bad-luck, the Reliant mutinies and puts Laurence and Temeraire alone on the Amitié. The journey back to England is difficult, and on the way Laurence accidentally finds himself leading a small fleet of fighting ships. As one does.

[The one where Laurence kinda sorta becomes a pirate (but not really). Four.]

seasons change (but people don't) - ftmsteverogers - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“If there’s a girl I’m meant to be mourning, I want to know,” Bucky persists, as though Steve hasn’t had a close brush with asphyxiation right before his eyes. His foot twitches against Steve’s under the table.

“There wasn’t a girl,” Steve coughs. “Why…?”

Bucky’s gaze is sharp and discerning as his eyes flick back and forth between Steve’s.

“There was,” he says, right hand gripping the counter behind him in a white-knuckled grasp. “A girl. A small blonde girl.”

[Disjointed but worked really well. Might be triggering for trans* ppl but as a cis woman it was fabulous. Mind the notes. Four.]

Bruises - PutItBriefly - Pride and Prejudice - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
“You see what a strange circumstance it is,” Elizabeth said, feeling some fleeting relief. “You know our acquaintance has not been easy.” “I admit we did not have the best of beginnings,” Darcy said, “but you must understand, that was many years ago. We have moved beyond all of that.”

Elizabeth wakes up to discover she and Mr. Darcy have been married ten years.

**To be removed for publication**

[I've never found a P&P fic that wasn't an amazing epic of its own, but for some reason I keep reading them in case I'm disappointed for once. This is a gorgeous, very complete work, and I suspect pretty true to the time period because a lot of little details completely enraged me. Very smart, fully thought-out and paced appropriately. I'm sure this author will find a publisher at some point but I can't help but hope it stays up online forever, too. Five.]

Getting Better All the Time - Traincat - Fantastic Four (Comicverse), Spider-Man (Comicverse) [Archive of Our Own]
“We were in People four months ago,” Johnny said. “You know - Stars, They’re Just Like Us.”

It had been a nice picture, too. A late August day, Johnny in a tight shirt and his favorite pair of jeans, sunglasses slipping down his nose. Peter had just swung in, his hair sweaty from the mask and his t-shirt wrinkled where he’d stuffed it in a bag. He was leaning in close to tell Johnny all about what he’d been hitting half an hour before. Their heads were bent together and they were wearing matching grins. Johnny’s arm was wrapped around Peter’s shoulders.

THEY STEAL EACH OTHER’S COFFEE! the caption in the corner gleefully informed, pointing out Peter’s hand creeping towards Johnny’s Starbucks. They looked happy and conspiratorial, like they were in on the world’s best secret. Johnny had kept it as his phone background for weeks.


One year later: Johnny's reeling, Peter's weird, and the press has moved on.

Deets - applecrumbledore - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
The grainy cellphone photo on the cover of the magazine is of his own back, his red Samwell t-shirt. He's got a forearm braced on the wall, his other hand holding the face of someone small and blond, mostly blocked from view, who has his hands on Jack's chest and a blue hoodie tied around his waist. Emblazoned across the bottom of the cover are the words IS JACK ZIMMERMANN GAY? and it feels like someone just punched him in the stomach. (now with epilogue!)

[I saw this making the rounds on my dash on pinboard and had to wait until I was in the mood, but everyone was spot-on. Great fic, well-plotted, well-written. Dropped a few storylines, leaving some things at loose ends, but generally quite good. Four.]

Clutch to the Floor - neveralarch - Mad Max Series (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Max is dreaming. Max knows it's a dream because he's comfortable. He's stretched out across the backseat of the War Rig, his feet pressed hard against the rig's frame to brace himself as the rig shudders through the sand. In reality the cab is full, with no space to stretch. When Max was falling asleep he'd been crushed against the window by the women, listening to them talk, as Furiosa drove and the War Boy kept vigil in front.

[Very weird sex, yes, but also really worked. Four.]

Esca is bare, reclined on the pillows. He stares up at Marcus and then jerks his chin at the space next to him on the mattress. There is no mistaking his meaning.

[Even if it's not your fandom, if it's Helenish, you read it.]

Cross a Canyon (with a broken limb) - theroguesgambit - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“You never graduated,” Stiles says, just to say it. To test it out in the open air. That's... huh.


Stiles spends his senior year battling troll-gremlins, taking on an unexpected tutoring job, and definitely not falling for a certain sourwolf (even though everyone else seems to think he is).

Out of Silence: a Series of Life-Altering Conversations Involving Clint Barton - nwhepcat - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Phil Coulson is the first person in years to discover Clint's weakness. He's also the first in a hell of a long time to realize his potential.


I doubt I'll ever finish this because it was enough of a roller-coaster ride to get through those 19 chapters, but it was excellent. Good attention paid to a deaf character who was not part of Deaf culture, lots of therapy to deal with lots of problems and created a really strong, coherent story that tied Iron man through Iron Man Three (plus Avengers) together. Hasn't yet gotten to Winter Soldier or AoS yet but I was highly impressed with the way nwhepcat wove together plot lines and created plausible explanations for why the Avengers all disappeared from each others' movies. Plus Sitwell wasn't secretly evil, so that was pretty great. Four-five. IF ONLY IT WERE FINISHED. AGH.]

forget the wax and the feathers - buchanan - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
"I’ve never been certain whether the moral of the Icarus story should only be, as is generally accepted, ‘don’t try to fly too high,’ or whether it might also be thought of as ‘forget the wax and feathers, and do a better job on the wings.'"

Bittle scores against Yale and Jack acts like a son of a bitch. They’re not friends.

[Yes. It was somewhat stilted and point-by-point, as most Jack POV fics are. It really worked, even if I wanted to see how those verboten conversations would go. Four.]

By a Law Divine - mirrorkill - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Okay, so, kissing Stiles. That's a weird thing that Derek's doing now. He has no idea where it's even coming from, especially considering bickering and fighting is their usual state of existence.
And then he does find out where it's coming from: A curse that's making everyone in town kiss someone they have mutual feelings for.
…yeah, Derek's not even sure why he's surprised by that.

[Sort of angsty, sort of shmoopy. Three-five. Didn't quite hit that balance between plot and tension.]

There's Monsters at Home - calrissian18 - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“How did you get past the wards?” Derek had put them up, with Peter’s grudging assistance, after the Alpha pack had made themselves at home a few times too many.

The guy pulled a face. “You mean the wards a five-year-old girl with the mental ability of a goldfish could deconstruct?” He blinked wide eyes at Derek. “Gee, I don’t know. It’s bound to go down as one of life’s great mysteries.”

Derek despised him.

[I love it when an author really knows her characters, and by extension, her fic. Four-five. This was everything I wanted out of a magic!au.]
