name me mountains, call me stone by Damkianna
The palace was captured by the Chen-Pa sometime in the afternoon.

Jiayi couldn't have said when with any certainty. It felt as though she should have known, as if someone should have sounded the temple bell to announce it; it was strange, kneeling in the dimness of her chamber in the women's palace with maidservants huddled close around her, listening to their quiet sobbing and realizing all at once that she couldn't tell. If battle continued, it was not close enough to hear. Perhaps it was all already over.

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.//

SUPERB worldbuilding

(the end of fear is) where we begin by samyazaz
"What if there was?" Combeferre asks abruptly, when she's halfway to her feet.

She stops and blinks at him. "Was what?"

"Someone willing to marry you." There's a flush of pink on his cheeks that's enthralling, but his gaze doesn't waver.

"Then I'd tell them no." Éponine snorts. "Anyone who wants to marry a strange woman sight-unseen is after something, and I've had my fill of being used."

"Someone who's not a complete stranger, then. Someone you've shared a conversation with." He glances around them at the cafe, at the table between them, and clears his throat. "Shared a meal with. What would you say then?"

i have named you queen (listen) by Damkianna
Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

(Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

This! Is! So! Good!

Better Natures by etirabys
“Work with me here, Frank,” Karen snapped. “Make some sense here. Talk to me. We can’t figure out what our next move is until you explain why you’re so disgusted at the thought of my being attracted to you — an attraction which, by the way, I’ve never let interfere with our work or our friendship —“

“I’m not disgusted,” Frank said in a strained, calm voice. “You have ghastly taste, but I’m not disgusted. No. It’s just the feeling of having carried a torch for miles and miles in the dark and... having the sun come up.”

Practically Married - Giulietta's Lair
Fraser'd bought him a ring.

Fraser'd bought him a fucking ring.

What the hell.

Ray's got this thing about rings, this thing where he looks at 'em and thinks things like Stella and forever and stupidity and being way, way too young to know anything about anything. Fraser, maybe, doesn't get that, or maybe he wouldn't have bought the damn thing in the first place.

It's not like Ray'd remembered that yesterday was their anniversary, because it's not like it was a real anniversary, anyway. It's not like this is a real marriage.
