The Grand Master of Daemonic Cultivation - Chapter 1 - FayJay - 魔道祖师 - 墨香铜臭 | Módào Zǔshī - Mòxiāng Tóngxiù [Archive of Our Own]
So on Twitter I mentioned I’d love to read a daemon AU of MDZS.

And Kim said “Daemon fic - can you IMAGINE what WWX's daemon has gone through?!?!?”

And I didn’t really get it, until she added:

“I'm actually thinking more along the lines that with cultivators, daemons are linked to their golden core.


And then I burst into tears. Because how could Jiang Cheng not know his “new” daemon was Wei Wuxian’s? And how could WWX hide his own loss? And a whole new world of knives unfolded before me, so here is a window into that AU, through a series of vignettes, as posted on Twitter.

With thanks to those who were reading and responding on Twitter along with me.

good for the soul - singingtomysoul - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
The demon raises an eyebrow in an unnaturally perfect arch. "Not really my purview, is it, confession?"

"You'll think it's funny. Well, you might." The corners of his mouth turn up, nervously, though there's that look in his eyes - a combination of warmth and weight that tugged at Crowley even before he knew what it meant. He's still not sure what to do with it, even after all this time.

"Angel," he begins, "you don't have to-"

"For the longest time, you see, I worried it was a - I think it's called a long game."

Aziraphale doesn't feel guilty, for once, but has some things to confess.

Crowley doesn't think he has guilt, and doesn't plan to confess anything. On both counts, he's wrong.

freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose - synecdochic - Stargate Atlantis [Archive of Our Own]
Because the meaning of life is "do the next thing", and we all carry the seeds of the past into our future. Futurefic, Rodney-centric.

There is a gravestone in Arlington National Cemetery. It sits watch over an empty grave, and there is a vine with small blue flowers, one the gardeners can't identify from any book, twining up its side.//

I have pretty consistently cited this as the best fanfic I've ever read, regardless of fandom. It's ... nothing like most of what I read. But it's so beautiful, and so utterly unique that I keep coming back to it. It's very grounded in the actual world of SGA and yet at the same time transcends it. It's desperately sad and beautifully hopeful. I have never read it and not cried. It's about grieving and loss and how you never "get over it" but you do learn how to move on and "do the next thing."

Warning for major character death prior to the start of the story.

Sheppard's Law - Speranza - Stargate Atlantis [Archive of Our Own]
This is the story of...John Sheppard's whole life, and it takes about forty years to tell. *facepalm* No, seriously; I apparently need to keep building John up from scratch. //

The one where John gets put in a, uh, bad luck box and essentially has to live his whole life over, except that anything that can go wrong will go wrong, and if he dies in the box he dies in real life. So Rodney has to help him. It's weird and great and one of my all time faves.

“And you’ve never done this before?”
Something tingles at the base of Sebastian’s spine. He shakes his head.
“Hm. I find that surprising,” Chris says thoughtfully. “You’re very obedient.”
“Jesus,” Sebastian mumbles.

Chris offers something Sebastian doesn't realize he needs. Someone to take care of him. Someone to keep him in line. Sebastian is instantly addicted, and Chris is willing to give him anything he wants, as long as he asks.

When Tony Stark was seventeen years old, he built his first AI. On that day, he ceased to be his father's creation, and became a creating force in his own right.

Falling - Chapter 1 - KPP (mad2Bhere) - Thor (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
In which Thor has visions, Loki has issues and the two of them are completely unable to have a serious conversation without it resulting in some sort of physical confrontation.


Loki stares at him in a way he has not looked at Thor in centuries. There is so much awe and adoration in his gaze that Thor feels a little self-conscious. For years Thor has not been able to surprise or impress Loki in any way, but now here they are. He has forgotten how good that feels, how much he missed this.
But then Thor has to open his mouth and ruin it all.

One second before Loki lets go of the spear, Thor knows.

He knows, he sees what will happen if his brother falls. He sees Loki dying, once, twice, thrice – and each time the loss cuts deeper. He sees their mother, sees her gown stained by her own blood, sees her soul ascending to the stars. He sees their father slumped on his throne, old and tired and broken by grief.

And then he sees himself, standing amidst shield brothers both old and new, sees himself fighting, feasting, laughing. He sees himself sitting on his father's throne, and feels secure in the knowledge that the realms will be at peace. He sees Jane by his side.

It is his worst nightmare, and at the same time it is everything he has ever wanted.

And he will not have it.

Wild Ambition Fortune's Ice Prefers - Chapter 1 - amberfox17 - Thor (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
When Thor went storming into Jotunheim he was looking to start a fight, but accidently winds up a pawn in Odin and Laufey's plans for a permanent peace between the realms; namely, in exchange for the return of the Casket of Ancient Winters, Laufey is offering his firstborn child Loki, the Aesir-sized sorcerer, in marriage to Thor. Such a momentous decision is not to be taken lightly, so Odin sends Thor to live on Jotunheim - without Mjolnir - for a season with Loki, to get to know his prospective consort and to teach the wilful prince some diplomatic sense. Thor is horrified, his parents are insistent and no-one really knows what Loki is thinking, but he hasn't stopped smiling...
Or, a jotun AU arranged marriage worldbuilding fic, featuring a confused Thor, a manipulative bastard Loki, Jotunheim politics, a slow burn developing relationship and a motley arrangement of characters from Marvel and myth.//
