The Way Back - Raine_Wynd - Leverage [Archive of Our Own]
Finding the way back home - and to point of acceptance with where home is - is not a straight line, especially when you're Eliot.

all our plans are useless indeed - Anonymous - Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch [Archive of Our Own]
Thomas’s back and knees creak alarmingly when he gets out of bed these days. He’s still an early riser, up with the birds, but it’s getting more and more tempting to stay in bed where it’s warm and comfortable, to perhaps hint to Molly that she could bring him breakfast on a tray and he could rise afterwards, perhaps even start work at a later hour. He doesn’t. He is the last wizard of London and he doesn’t know what will happen when he dies. (Thomas Nightingale, 1900-, wizard.)

Imaginary Friend - mousapelli - Haikyuu!! [Archive of Our Own]
It's just a weird coincidence, probably, that Kenma had made a wish on his birthday candles that if being in a Sentai was too much to ask, that he could have least one best friend kind of like that. And then the next day Kuroo Tetsurou was strolling into Kenma's backyard and banging on the screen door like he owned the place. That sense of unreality had never quite worn the whole way off.

"You're like…a real person, right?" Kenma had finally got up the nerve to ask a few days after that. Kuroo had laughed so hard that Kenma hadn't brought it up again, plus Kuroo had put him in a headlock and wanted to know whether hallucinations could do that.

|| Oh my gosh, I love this SO MUCH. It's a little slip of a thing, but Kenma--prickly, and quiet, and mostly settled in it--is perfect: it draws him a little unsure of the luck he has in making a friend who likes him as he is, and it draws it in a couple of brushstrokes. Perfect.

The Sister Job - zahnie
Eliot has a sister who he's lost touch with. Parker and Hardison help him reconnect with her. Cute backstory and a great Parker POV in the second part.

Social Animals - nivo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
But the next time Hoseok falls asleep in yet another uncomfortable dressing room chair with his head held carefully to protect his already styled hair – Jeongguk can't help but think he would've made one fine court lady back in the day – Jeongguk is there, alert and ready. Hoseok must realize what he's up to – he always does, usually before Jeongguk himself could even make sense of his own actions – but he doesn't comment on it; doesn't tease Jeongguk the way Jimin and Yoongi do whenever they catch him 'playing hyung,' as Jimin once put it with a sappy grin, messing up Jeongguk's hair just to be annoying.

It's not like that, anyway.

|| Goddddddd, this is the fic that convinced me Junghope was something I loved--it packs an emotional wallop for something so short (barely 1k!). All about protectiveness and growing up and knowing something is waiting for you, even if all it is right now is your hand in someone's hair.

not funny - applecrumbledore - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
This whole thing feels so weird, like they're betraying some clause of the homosocial bro code that says it's only for fun, you can't actually be gay, like they're letting someone down. But on the other hand, being with each other is the most natural thing they've ever done.

|| Oh, this was great, and kind of achey, surrounding a meet the parents kind of thing. CW for implied racism against Ransom. The build is tense and done well, for a pairing that's basically got no boundaries or distance by the time the series even starts.

stranger than you could imagine - Sixthlight - Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch [Archive of Our Own]
If Thomas looked at Peter sometimes and saw a handsome young man – well, that was his business. The moment always passed, a strange sort of visual illusion that vanished when you tilted your head the other way. Except when it didn’t.

|| I liked this a lot--soft and working things out. Nightingale is repressed, but trying to undo it. (Spoilers included for Broken Homes; I'm very pissed at Aaronovitch for this narrative choice, gdi, but the fic is good.)

you're gonna give your love to me - irnan - Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
“Oh my god,” says Natasha. “Please don’t hit on me, please.” She falls into a chair despairingly and puts her head in her hands. Such a bad idea, Jesus Christ, if they do hit on her, if they both hit on her, if the words you don’t have to choose cross anybody’s lips –

Such a bad idea.

She hears Steve put the newspaper on the table; the kettle boils; then there’s silence. Finally James says solemnly, “Nobody’s going to hit on you in this house. By my Aunt Ida’s grave I swear it.”

“Everybody hated your Aunt Ida,” says Steve.


In which Natasha Romanov gets dosed with sex pollen, pines self-indulgently for her best friends, dreams a lot, and has to deal with being dated.

|| I love this. I haven't seen AoU, and I likely never will, but this deals with that love plot and lays it gently to rest, all while giving us back Natasha fucked-up for her Actual Reasons and also Steve and Bucky being great. No non or dub con, Natasha rides the sex pollen out.

“Hey, it’s Science Barbie!” some guy in a baseball cap and a tank called, loud enough to carry over the excited hum of three hundred little girls packed into the auditorium.

[Ten moments in the life of Honey Lemon]

drabble from december? | puppycat
backstage at sbs’s gayo daejun is hectic. it’s always hectic, at these things, but more so tonight, with 20 idols shuffled into temporary units, creating twice as many costume changes and half as much coherency in dressing room locations.

on the bright side, it is a lot easier, with so much chaos, for jieun to pull hyojung into an abandoned side-hallway and slide her hands up hyojung’s dress.

|| A little slip of a fic, as thrilling as the idea of Hyorin in a slinky dress; saving partly just because there isn't enough femmeslash, tbh.

The Portal (Sunlight), 1894
He considers the ancient world - a whole wing of plaster cast replicas, tiny cities in miniature, staggering Greek gods in shining white. But that's all tangled up in memory of school trips (he and Steve of a height, their arms flung over each other's shoulders, standing with their noses up against the glass as Bucky whispers stories about the tiny figures on the other side), and he's hardly a child anymore.

AKA, The Saga of Cute Twink Bucky, and his earnest dive into the bourgeois Manhattan gay scene, circa 1937.

the courage to continue
Even a man with a soft-edged definition of morals can lose a lot of faith in his country when he’s out doing the dirty work, but something Alex said to him early on has stuck with him all these years: “People come to embrace peace in two ways, Nick, they either walk through fire or they love someone who has.”

(what a day) — The Agile
Cheedo is thirteen years, or seven, depending on if you ask her. If you ask her, then she’d whisper ‘a little more than 2,500 days’ and someone will pat her head. She had been five for a little over two years until she hit a growth spurt. She tries eating less.
