Comes the Tide - darthneko - Final Fantasy VIII [Archive of Our Own]
Another day, another gil. This is life outside the Garden. ~ Seifer and Zell, post game, meet up again in Fisherman's Horizon. [6631]

[A classic, and definitely one of my favorite post-game fics for any Final Fantasy game.]

phoenix - openended - Stargate SG-1 [Archive of Our Own]
No one expected the end of the world to come from the Earth itself. It was supposed to be aliens and explosions coming from above, not a maelstrom of earthquakes and volcanoes and floods turning most of the planet into uninhabitable wasteland. When three-fourths of SG-1 crawl out of the rubble that used to be Cheyenne Mountain, they reluctantly have to leave Jack behind, presumed dead. Threats of alien invasion and hostile takeover are replaced by finding food and shelter; daily briefings and offworld missions are traded for security concerns and rebuilding. Through it all, Sam, Daniel, and Teal’c find that there’s more to survival than supplies and a place to wait out the storm.

And sometimes, ghosts of the past aren’t really dead at all. [37,864]

[...At the end of the world, Canada is the only safe place to run to. It takes ten years for their ghosts to catch up.]

We Two Alone
Academy fic. Dr. Leonard McCoy thinks he has nothing in common with command-track cadet Jim Kirk, until a series of events forces them together. When a simple training mission is derailed into a seemingly hopeless situation, both have to learn to trust one another, and they’ll need all their wits and survival skills to stay alive.

Afterimage - galacticproportions - Star Wars - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Bodhi makes it off Scarif. But he doesn't think he should have. [5453]
A few people in every group are Alderaanian, and their faces look how his feels. He wants to reach out to them, but doesn't know how, so they pass each other, locked in their homelessness, their orphaning.

Bodhi feels like he's been widowed many times, even though he barely knew them—Baze and Chirrut and their deep sufficiency to one another, K-2 who shouldn't even have been possible but was, Jyn with her late-blooming hope, sharp Cassian whose face Bodhi would have liked to touch and see if it could soften. No time, no time. Send them off with Galen, with his mothers and Rohini, with his city. More names to call silently into the darkness.

But Not Buried This Time - Tierfal - Fullmetal Alchemist - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Once Ed decides that he is categorically not going to rot on the Drachman tundra, dragging his ass out of the jaws of death is actually pretty easy. ...except when it's not. At all. Which is most of the time. (AU from end of Brotherhood.) [94,615]
A pause.

Silence.

“This is new,” Roy says, brushing just his fingertips along the edge of the scarring shit around the bullethole.

“Oh, yeah,” Ed says. “Funny story about that.”

Roy gives him a dark look. “Ah, yes. Getting shot is hilarious.”

“Shit happens,” Ed says.

Where the Wild Things Are - TwilightDeviant - The Magnificent Seven (2016) [Archive of Our Own]
At the end of one path, Red Harvest searches for a new one. Jack Horne invites him to tag along until he finds it. [10,506]

[Not a pairing I would have seriously considered before reading this fic, but so, so lovely in this instance. I texted bits of it to my BFF until she broke and demanded I link her to it. Quote, "That's like some Pride and Prejudice shit"]
Jack had been hungry before. He had been hungry so often and for so long in ways he knew Red Harvest never had, not consistently. He knew this because Red Harvest’s horse had a name. Jack’s did not.

Maybe he wouldn’t have thought of it on his own, but soon as he’d heard about it—

So what’s Iceman up to these days?

He went back to grad school. He’s getting a PhD in geology.

Are you shitting me?

Nah. Don’t you get it? He’s going for it, man. NASA.

—well, it was fucking obvious, wasn’t it? There was no other way to keep climbing. He’d dusted off his mech engineering degree and put in his application—first time in his life he’d been glad he’d never broken five-foot-seven. And okay, sure, it had been good, having the old rivalry back. He liked chasing Iceman. It made things more fun when you could give somebody else a little shit while you were taking it by the truckload from the instructors. Just like the old days. Just like the old days. [3468]

wrap your roots all around my bones - shuofthewind - Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Thor (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Darcy’s five, but she’s already learned to read, so she knows precisely why her grandmother gets that weird pinched look to her mouth when she sees Darcy’s marks. On her left wrist, the handwriting—a bit loopy, a bit cramped, but clear all the same—spells out, I am sorry, can we perhaps talk about this later? And on the right, in crooked, hasty script, reads, Maybe when no one is shooting at us.

It sets the tone for a lot of her life, to be entirely honest. [15,759]

Trust Owen Grady to fuck that up.

(Or, three months prior to the Indominus Event, Vic Hoskins makes a bad decision, Owen Grady goes missing, and four six-foot, three hundred pound murder lizards escape into Claire's park. She can hear Alan Grant shouting, "I told you so!" from Montana.)

Tainted - Macx - Jurassic Park - All Media Types, Jurassic World (2015) [Archive of Our Own]
Owen Grady had always had a talent for animals. Like his grandfather. It was a talent that ran in the families.

Masrani Global recruited him to train raptors. It was an intriguing, novel idea, something only a crazy or insane person would attempt.

Owen wasn't crazy or insane. He knew he could do this.

He just didn't know how deep he would get into it, how strong the connection to the pack would become, how close... they, the four of them, would become to him.

His grandfather had always warned him: don't get too close. Don't let them connect. Well, it was too late for that now. [101,210]

nothing is exempt from resurrection - ohmytheon - Mad Max Series (Movies), Mad Max: Fury Road [Archive of Our Own]
They move together as one. He’s never felt something like this before, not even when he piloted Road Warrior. It’s easy to fall into a rhythm of sorts when the person next to him is just as broken as he is, her shattered pieces aligning just so with his. That he can make sense of, that he understands. The more they fight together, the more they pilot War Rig, driving the jaeger like it’s an extension of them both, the more he feels whole.

(Or simply, the Mad Max: Fury Road/Pacific Rim AU that no one asked for.) [5472]

parhelion: The Angel Of Bad Children
Me, I never believed in the Angel of Bad Children until I found the youngling under the East Pier. The fella was fourteen or fifteen years away from his birth, but he wouldn’t be getting any older. His spilled blood was still smoking when I knelt down on the beach sand next to him. The blood glowed puss-green against the sand, just like the tales along the seaside had claimed. He’d been reaped.
