truth's like blood underneath your fingernails - Chapter 1 - Choices_We_Make, questionsthemselves - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
"Slytherin would do well, help you on the path to greatness," the hat seems to be coaxing him, but for something that can read his mind, it sure doesn't seem to know him very well.

Harry doesn't want greatness. He doesn't need his name in lights and on everyone's lips. He wants meals, hot ones, whenever he wants, with people that he likes and that like him. Friends he can have adventures with, huddle under the blankets with at night and laugh with. People who might think… think he's worth something.


In which Harry is sorted into Slytherin, and Snape deals with the fallout.

Harry's Cousins - Chapter 1 - speculating - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
The Dursleys have never wanted Harry, so when he fortuitously stumbles across a book on Wizard Family Trees, he writes a letter, hoping to find another family to take him in, hopefully one that won't mind when he does 'freaky' stuff....

“When much is taken, something is returned.” - Terry Pratchett, Nation

The Montague Street Doctor - Chapter 1 - The_Circus - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Just because Sherlock stopped, doesn't mean the Work has to. London is John's city now and he will keep it together with stitching, string, his healing, the food off his table, and sometimes the clothes off his back. John Watson keeps going. He's good at that.

:: How John grows into his own person after Sherlock is gone.

A Little Bit of Trouble - Chapter 1 - karategal - Jurassic Park (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
His front door had a hole in it.

Owen had a feeling that he knew who was responsible, but that didn't change the fact that his door had a dog-sized hole in it. Not to mention the busted window and shredded couch on his porch. You know, this was what happened to your personal property when you became a father-figure to four naughty, misbehaving, and ridiculously intelligent Velociraptors.

Rip the Earth in Two with Your Mind - Chapter 1 - Cinderscream - Jurassic Park (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Raising a pack of raptors for science was one thing.

Finding himself making a mental bond with them was another.

Being forcefully bonded with a pair of creatures that shouldn't even exist was so far out of the realm of possibilites Owen Grady had clung to that at this point he's not even sure what to do with himself anymore. Oddly enough, the only person who isn't freaking out is Henry Wu.

who gives a damn about the family you come from? - tempestaurora - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
It started with a harmless Instagram story on Peter's account. Then Tony Stark reposted it. Then Peter Parker's account blew up.

Harley Keener's there because he likes to watch the world burn.

for good - Madelinedear - Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) [Archive of Our Own]
"Sorry, May, we can't all be best friends with a celebrity.”

May opens her mouth to retort reflexively, the words 'we aren’t even friends' on the tip of her tongue before she closes her mouth. Because they are friends, now. They’re way past that point.

Oh my god, she thinks somewhat hysterically. Tony Stark is my best friend.

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.

Midoriya Izuku does not let his lack of a Quirk prevent him from being strong.
Also known as that one AU where Izuku follows the ridiculous training regimen of Saitama from One Punch Man and becomes stronger than anyone ever imagined he could be.

A Professor and a Student - Chapter 1 - LeDiz - Pocket Monsters | Pokemon (Anime) [Archive of Our Own]
Ash seemed determined to stay in Alola, and Kukui had a loft going to waste. He'd boarded students before; he didn't expect anything special out of the experience. As it turns out, Ash isn't the only one who's going to be learning a lot this year.

:: Honestly one of the best characterizations I've seen in fan fiction, period. Captures the genuinely good heart that Ash has, stays true to the show and gives him just the right childlike wonder and love of the pokemon world.

there's a michael jackson song about this - Bundibird - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
It starts out as a joke.

Rhodey takes one look at Tony and Harley tinkering with and squabbling over some piece of tech and demands, “Since when do you have a kid?” and Harley glances up and says casually, without missing a beat, “He impregnated my mom eleven years ago and then left her to raise me alone. He’s a terrible person.”

Tony’s going to be laughing about Rhodey’s expression for MONTHS.

Midoriya looked over the occupants of the room with butter soft eyes. “We should do this again. Seeing everyone in one place … it’s like we’re back in school again.”

Todoroki said, “It feels like a family reunion.”


(Social media fic, counting down the five months to Class 1-A's ten year reunion.)
