It's Not The End Of The World, Dear by jessthereckless
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "After averting the apocalypse, Crowley and Aziraphale re-examine their relationship and reach the obvious conclusion: they're retired, they're in love and they're damn well going to enjoy it. Providing, of course, that they can stay out of trouble." // 20.7K total.

* "Lie Back and Think of Dinner," Even though Crowley has been pining away industriously for thousands of years, he doesn't immediately twig onto Oxfordshire's sudden spurt of Foretean mysteries and fracking side effects as attempts to lure him into a picnic. // 11K. Fun, bantery, and ultimately a bit porny.

* "Still My Heart Has Wings," "The story of how an angel and demon somehow set up home together." // 10K, sequel to previous. Aziraphale gets to try Many Naughty Things, Crowley gets to sort out his own role in the relationship -- and confront the whole idea of retirement.
Aziraphale looked like he very much wanted to swear. “This was you, wasn’t it?” he said. “IKEA instructions?”
Crowley grinned. He always liked to take credit for bad work.
“I knew it,” said Aziraphale. “Driving people slowly insane with affordable Swedish furniture. Of course it had to be you.”
“Look, you were the one who said I should get a hobby.”

Strange Pilgrims: Being the Account of a lost Angel, the Journeys of a Demon, the meaning of Free Will, of the Unravelling of a Prophecy, and of Being Unravelled by it in Turn by sousverre
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. Aziraphale goes missing, and after a lot of trouble (and a short prophecy), Crowley finds him human and married to an investment banker. After inveigling himself into Aziraphale's new life as a small, chatty pet snake, Crowley first has to solve the puzzle of Aziraphale's amnesia. // 30.4K, Crowley POV, WIP. Actually enjoying this enormously, but ... WIP. Argh. Last update: C6, 07/09.

Back Room by forthegreatergood
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "Aziraphale actually does have quite an extensive collection of pornography in the bookshop. Like most of the questionable things in Aziraphale’s life, it’s Crowley’s fault." // 5.6K, Aziraphale POV. Crowley keeps 'finding' valuable porn then turning it over for various reasons; Aziraphale finally catches a clue. A fanfic about porn, which is not itself porn, lol.

The Inevitable by Toft
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "That night at Crowley's flat." // 2K. Crowley POV. Wherein, as it turns out, Aziraphale is DTF, but all Crowley can take is "a bit of a cuddle."

Not So Blue by pineapplecrushface
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "Aziraphale presses his suit. Crowley mostly has a lot of questions." // 5.5K. Crowley POV. Fic in which nothing in particular happens but aftermath hanging out, with Crowley reeking of pine scent and pathetic, but it still manages to be readable. This is the one with the talking swallow, btw.

Let Sleeping Snakes Lie by kythen
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "The world doesn't end. Crowley falls asleep. And Aziraphale stays by his side, waiting for him to wake up again." After Crowley goes into hibernation for a year, Aziraphale carts him around and pines. // 4.6K, Aziraphale POV. Rather cool notion but not esp. well written. Fic would be half as long if author simply stopped repeating same ideas over and over with slightly different wording.

A City Wall and a Trampoline by kafkian
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "5 times Crowley knows he’s in love with Aziraphale + 1 time he knows the reverse." BFFs move out of London, share a cottage, a laptop, and an invitation to a wedding. All the while Crowley pines for things he can't have. // 4.7K. Crowley POV, purest curtain fic, with nuclear-grade pining.
Crowley gestures vaguely to humanity, which was presumably getting on with its business somewhere in the distance, comfortably far away from their small abode. It wasn’t that Crowley hadn’t liked London while he was living there, but it’s occurred to him since their relocation that he’d been warping the city around his own needs and desires for so long that he no longer knew it particularly well outside his carefully carved corner. He’d been rather startled to discover that he actually did want peace and quiet. He was getting old.

Ordinary People (The Anything But Ordinary Remix) by cimorene
Good Omens, Aziraphale/Crowley. "Crowley has started to take a proprietary interest in Aziraphale's bookshop." That is, Crowley has finally decided to make his move and begins by way of interior redecoration. // 14.4K. Charmer. I really loved Daegaer's fic at the time, and I'd no idea cimorene had remixed it. In this variation there's just as much painting, but they're the usual two rather than humans.

A Road Bright and Swift by Dorinda
Lord of the Rings, Legolas/Gimli. The two travel back via Fangorn to their respective peoples: Gimli learns to swim, a parlous side quest is undertaken, and Legolas frets like a porpentine. // 15.6K, Legolas POV.
Gimli, freshly-wakened, was lying with his head propped on one hand, his blanket at his waist. And he said, his voice morning-hoarse, "If my memory doesn't fail me, we'll be reaching the River Limlight soon. I'd dearly love a wash."
Legolas's heart seized and tightened. The Limlight was in the very north of the forest, and once across it, they would emerge from their easy wandering, cracking out of the chrysalis to the pain of the open air. No more Fangorn, no more careless peace, no more Gimli at dawn stretching his muscles limber and grumbling about the wear of a bootsole.
And all the future losses lined themselves up.

Fight Like Girls for Our Place at the Table by napricot
Captain America, Sharon/Natasha (Steve/Bucky). "'It sure feels like a demotion. You’re taking me out of the field and out of intel analysis to babysit Captain America.' How Sharon Carter gets her groove back, fucks up some Nazis, and gets the girl, with unasked-for assists from a super soldier couple." // 52K. Sharon POV all. Pretty entertaining, v.v. slo-mo romance for Sharon, who's smitten with Natasha and later comes to think the regard could be mutual. Starts before CA:WS then forks after, so lots of agenting around for the CIA. (I'm kind of enjoying this seeming fandom consensus that none of the movies after that matter.)

Flyboys by aerialiste
SGA/Captain America, John/Sam. "John Sheppard is on convalescent leave--or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself, though it looks a lot more like hiding in a crappy apartment in Houston, never leaving except for physical therapy and more alcohol. So he’s not sure why he turns up at a kink club, much less why he starts hanging out with Sam Wilson, probably the only other guy on the planet with a tighter security clearance than his--not that either of them much wants to talk about work.
Two airmen, both with troubled pasts, find solace in each other one humid Gulf Coast summer. And the strength of the pull John feels toward Sam surprises him more than the odds of their meeting at all." // 100K(!), AU crossover. Post-CA:WS fork on the Marvel side; might also fork on SGA side (never watched last season, so dunno). Alternating POV. LONG, ~angst and unrequited pining galore, military jargon, lots of convoluted BDSM junk that's lost on me (John wants his ass kicked; Sam wants to kick it, I guess), background character death, pretty necessary glossary squirreled away in a side fic. But, all that aside, it's weirdly readable, generally well written with a good effort to sync the canons, and I wasn't bored.

* Timestamp + Glossary, A kinda ehhh prefic threesome (John/Teyla/Kanaan); tagged on the bottom is the main fic's glossary. Wish I'd known it was there when I was reading the other fic. I'm sure this arrangement made sense to someone.

Phoenix by forgetme
Naruto, Kakashi/Guy. "Kakashi comes back to life. It takes a while. (takes place after chapter 450)" // 8K. Kakashi wandering around Konoha Crater, aaaangsting about how he never told Guy he was into him before he died (and generally being kinda useless), but now he can't seem to corner Guy to tell him anything ('cause he's busy being kinda useful).

It Started Like This by sky_somedays
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. "Shane thinks that if he can just pin down when it started, maybe he can do something about it. Think himself out of it, somehow. Understand the problem to solve the problem. (He tries not to think about what, exactly, the problem is.)" // 2.4K. Shane POV. Spinning his mental wheels until Ryan puts the moves on him. Not a complexcated fic, but nice for what it is. No smut. (Also nice to see fanfic show up on popular/fandom once in a while...)

Your Love Is My Drug by tinsnip
Set of two fics, Garak/Bashir. // 21.5K total.

* "When You Go Away," "How dare Garak go off-station and miss lunch with Julian? Really, he's quite put out about it. Unusually so... Wait, what is this?" // 4.5K. Prequelish, a bit of introductory pining as Julian more or less trips into a realization he's crushing hardcore. Again.

* "Your Love Is My Drug," "Julian's research project in speculative reproductive xenobiology is turning out to be a little more complicated than he'd hoped." Julian attempts to court Garak ~subtly using Cardassian novels as a guide. // 17K. This is an Early Julian fic, so he's high-octane ~overly in all aspects, which is YMMV. With that in mind, it's a fun version of a popular theme -- Julian trying to figure out and enact a traditional courtship -- that mainly rolls along on pining and UST. Doesn't feel finished (we don't get the benefit of all that xeno research...), but evidently it is.

Victorious by Neery
Transformers, Optimus/Megatron. After Optimus accidentally stumbles over a sex stim recording of Megatron from back in his arena days, Optimus finds his ability to negotiate a peace treaty somewhat compromised. // 4K. Optimus POV. Technically a smutty sequel, but works on its own.
See also "Champion," Astolat,

* "Victory Lap," "Rumble was gonna have to warn Megatron." He's noticed Optimus Prime has been giving Megatron strange looks -- clearly something hinky is afoot. // 1K, Megatron POV. LOL.

Get Religion Quick (Cause You're Looking Divine) by brinnanza
Good Omens, Aziraphale/Crowley. "So it was fine. Even if Crowley couldn’t love him, he clearly liked him well enough, and that was almost the same thing. It no doubt would have continued to be fine, or at least fine-adjacent, were it not for a narrowly averted apocalypse and several bottles of a really quite nice Riesling Aziraphale had found in the back room of his newly restored bookshop." // 4K. In vino veritas, basically. Fairly sweet, fairly typical GO fic. (No smut.)

That First, Initial Feeling by varnes
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane, AU. Shane mistakes a crystals shop for a sex shop, and is offended by the whole idea of a crystals shop while finding himself intrigued by the biceps of its hippie owner. Eventually this leads to them doing a Buzzfeed pro/con show about woo-woo New Age/alternative stuff while not admitting they're attracted to each other. // 21K, alternating POV. The same general setup only with Ryan as a contractor and Shane as an employee in search of a recurring series. It's mildly amusing, complete with an onsen episode.

The Gift We Cannot Destroy by susiecarter
DS9, Garak/Bashir. "Julian has no soulmark. He knows what that must mean, and he's learned to accept it. Meeting Garak, getting to know him, is almost enough to make him think--but it's not possible. Garak must have a soulmate, and there's simply no way it could be Julian. Right?" // 5.7K. So. Two things I dislike: soulbonds and "5 things" fics. Yet this one has such good interactions btwn the two that I periodically wind up rereading it anyway. Ah, whatever.

Talking to Strangers (No Stranger Than You) by susiecarter
Deep Space 9, Bashir/Garak. "'Arguing,' Miles says. 'It's like flirting for them, or something.' 'What?' Julian says. (Post-3.15: Julian learns something he didn't know about Cardassians, and then has to decide what to do about it.)" // 3K. Always a great fic subject, and this one's a nifty variation on it, with both obliquely setting themselves up as failboats. (No smut.)

And I Alone Have Escaped To Tell You by astolat
Transformers, Cyclonus/Megatron, gen. Cyclonus, sole survivor of the final battle on Cybertron, attempts a warp back to base but finds himself 13 years in the past in an alternate dimension. He can use what he knows to save this world, but it's a secondary goal. // 52K. Do I want to read a bazillion words of unfamiliar fandom and characters? After some debate ... apparently yes. A twisty, complicated, engrossing sort of fic loaded with Decepticons. Very mildly slashy, but mostly filled with extreme pining for Lord Not-Appearing-in-This-Fic.

* "Elegy," Cyclonus/Megatron. // 3.5K. Short, mournful fic where Cyclonus mulls over the glorious conquest of the universe that his true lord will never get to achieve. Megatron is less-than-impressed by that idea when it comes up during interfacing.
