we ain't born typical - paxlux - The Losers (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
The wind's out of the south and Cougar's restless.

|| The summary's misleading--this is very much in Jake's POV, and it runs and trips on itself in run-ons and asides, quips and idle curiosity, but still, through that, stays focused. The style's honestly at least half the fun; the rest is atmosphere and warmth.

How You Get The Girl - paperclipbitch - Young Avengers [Archive of Our Own]
Diner!AU. America has never pretended she can’t be hypocritical, but she’s also a hell of a lot better at subtlety than Teddy is. Which is why nobody’s plaguing her to ask out Weirdly Graceful Trust Fund Student.

|| I don't have any background in the Young Avengers other than the new Hawkeye and Kate Bishop being the bomb.com, but I love this pairing anyway. A lot. And this was fun and snappy and totally lovely.

what's my age again? - verity - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
A for effort, H-A-W-K-E-Y-E, Kate says as soon as she frees herself from her harness. They really need to come up with a real sign instead of just fingerspelling all the time. Maybe miming drawing a bow, then pointing to the eyes. Something cool. You have to get over your boner for that boomerang arrow.

"Did you just sign 'angry penis'?" Sam says, distracted from his unresolved sexual tension with Natasha.

"Whatever," Kate says. She flips her hair. "I'm learning."

|| I love this Hawkeye so much--lowkey anti-authority, highkey bisexual and also here to give people a hard time. I really want to read the comics, gosh.

Listen, Changsub starts this cover and I got maybe two seconds in and knew I loved it and it only got better and I'm saving this for a day when I'm sad and need to see Minhyuk harmonizing in a pink bobble hat and Hyunsik doing the rap parts and Changsub having the time of his life belting the high notes okay I know this day will come and I will be very happy for this.

yoongi | Up All Night
Yoongi would love to be an asshole right now and kick Jimin off, but it’s Jimin. Yoongi can never be the asshole he wants to be when Jimin is around. He has this weird muting effect on Yoongi’s personality and Yoongi thinks Jimin knows he has this power over Yoongi and he’s using it right now. He’s evil in a puppy-who-has-gotten-into-toilet-paper kind of way.

“It doesn’t work,” Jimin pouts. “I even tried to count Mario Namjoon hyung leapfrogging Princess Peach Seokjin hyung, but even that didn’t work.”

|| One, that is an amazing image. Two, I really love the ending, and three, some really great bits of soft reluctant pining from the angry cloud.

charm offensive - hardlygolden - Brooklyn Nine-Nine (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“What’s Rosa like?” Amy asks, curious about her absent colleague.

Gina smiles. “She is just the sweetest,” she enthuses and then cackles. “Ell oh ell. I couldn’t even say that with a straight face. She is going to eat you alive.” Gina makes a strange abortive claw gesture, as if miming detaching Amy’s eyes from their sockets and using them as the key ingredient in a margarita.

|| I wanted more from this than its ending, but the voices throughout plus the fact I adore these two is enough to make it worthwhile.

runandgun: Wonderwall, for halcyondusk
With the “trial of the century” in his lap, Defense Attorney Park Chanyeol already has a lot of things to handle. Sleeping with the prosecutor had (unfortunately) not been on his to-do list.

|| Ignoring the terrible lawyering in this (seriously, in what world is this a trial of a century, in what world is lawyering like this AT ALL but okay whatever), fun: Chanyeol and Baekhyun's relationship is actually probably my favorite, but Chanyeol's self-centeredness and interest in Kris are also pretty fun.

colorfunk: old haunts and new
What Jongin has is years of being SM's whittled golden child, learning discipline, learning to turn parts of himself off and on--anger, confidence, sex appeal, disillusionment and a growing sense of being stuck, except this never came up. For all the PR and interview training, no one ever sat him down and said, Here's what you should do if you want to suck face with your bandmate but there are surveillance cameras in your room. Godspeed.

|| Ugh. Not REALLY resolved, but nearly; soft and funny, both, one of the first fics I read in this fandom, which, yes, often means unsaved. I think this is the reason I feel funny when idols have to use their stage names on reality shows. Really sympathetic Kai.

Parerga Atakta, a tsubasa chronicle fanfic | FanFiction
'I found a story about us,' Fye said. He pushed the book against Kurogane's chest, leant close. 'Listen. Listen. And striving still the Twiceborn stood against the poison-bearing beast and struck out its eyes, and from its talons snatched his sword-brother, who lay swooning upon the grass. Thereupon the Twiceborn gave unto him the philtre he had bought from the queen with his own heart's blood, and the Dark Warrior awoke and clasped him in his arms and cried passionately –'

'The hell,' Kurogane said, choking. 'Give me that.'

|| Oh, this is LOVELY--Kurogane and Fai are spot-on, the one, gruff and as bendable as anything for Fai, the other, light-hearted and haunted. Some moments of over-writing, but slides right into CLAMP's whole thing about tragedy and hope and love and the unspoken, and, above all, duality and chances. Really great.

Soul Cake - zhiverny6 - Discworld - Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
Carrot and Angua sat by the fire at the small inn in the Ramtops, waiting out the rain. The inn was decorated for Soul Cake Day, in a casual sort of way, with a few ribbons and candles and a soul cake duck over the fireplace.  It looked like a picture you’d see in a shop window, with less glitter and without the sense that someone was about to try to sell you a crossbow.  Dwarves didn’t celebrate Soul Cake Day, and Angua’s family never really went in for holidays.  But, she had to admit, it was pretty.

Dwarves hated rain.  Few people who weren’t dwarves knew this, since the difference between a happy dwarf and a grumpy dwarf was not always easy to tell, until the moment when “grumpy dwarf” became “raging homicidal dwarf running at your knees with an axe.”

|| As you can see, excellent Discworld-voice. It's ESPECIALLY good on the Carrot front, but Angua is lovely as well.

dress up and coloring... a lot of coloring - Katarin - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Hal gets traded and PK's okay with that, he really is. He's still friends with Hal's kids, though, and Carey isn't jealous at all.

In the same verse as "It's Complicated," and the same effortless narration and complex characterization. Carey is such a douche, I love it.

Stockholm Syndrome and other drugs - AlchemyAlice - The Avengers (2012), Marvel Avengers Movies Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Phil’s last thoughts are of two things: that Stark has apparently managed to finally adapt Clint’s crossbow to take tranq rounds, and that Steve Rogers is far more devious than he’s given credit for.

He identifies, with some horror, that what he feels most about this is a sort of terrible, aggravated fondness.

Christ. Fury had warned him, but he hadn’t expected the Stockholm Syndrome to kick in quite so fast.

Pigeonville, USA. - Anonymous - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Day 214 on the campaign trail of Steve Rogers for President. Twenty-sixteen's turning out to be a hell of a year. (A Day in the Life of Phil Coulson, Longtime Sufferer, with Guest Appearances by Darcy Lewis, Best Assistant Ever, and Clint Barton, Mouthy Boyfriend.)

There are few things that can work him up to a vocal rant – Tony Stark; people being rude to librarians; the state of Delaware – but kitten-hating tops the list. Even Darcy noticed.

"Geez, so Walker hates kittens," she'd said. "What's the big deal?"

"Kittens are small and innocent and delightful and purr," Coulson said, raising his voice just a fraction. "What's to understand?"
