Think Tidy - nivo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“So these are the rules,” says Hoseok's new roommate, his voice brooking no argument. “Don't touch my shit. Don't leave your stuff lying around the place – I'm serious, anything I find is going in the trash, I don't care if it's a napkin or a midterm paper you've been slaving over for days. Don't mess with the furniture. Don't leave dishes in the sink or on the counter. Whatever you use in the kitchen, you put it back exactly where you found it, and I mean you put it back pronto. None of that 'I'll do it later' bullshit. I prefer to get stuff like laundry and groceries done on Saturday, and it'd be cool if we could do it together, but it's fine if that's not your style, I'll figure something out. And I guess that's basically it. Questions, comments, early regrets?”

“I think I'm a little bit in love,” Hoseok confesses in a rush.

|| This is great, this is so, so, great, the characterization is great and the turn at the end--GREAT. So great. I think of this fic and grin.

The penny jar theory - Deputychairman - due South [Archive of Our Own]
“How - ” Fraser cleared his throat. “How long is the contract?”

“Six months,” Ray told the stew.

“And will you,” he stopped. Ray heard the deep breath he took. Taking it on the chin, attaboy, Ben. “Are you planning to come back here, afterwards?”

|| Ooof. I read this whole thing with my heart in my throat, not sure it was going to stick the landing on the emotional resolution, and then it DID, even better than I anticipated.

in a sea of people (it's your eyes i drown in) - namgi - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Five times Namjoon notices Yoongi and Jimin's particularly close moments, and five times he tries not be completely, irrationally jealous. He fails miserably.

|| I ended up liking this SO MUCH. There is a moment mid-fic where I was like, EXCUSE YOU, WHY ARE YOU MESSING UP MY PINING, THIS IS NOT 10/10 EXECUTION OF THIS TROPE, but then it sticks the landing and I was so happy. (Still don't entirely buy it, but I think my headcanon of Yoongi as aro kind of... gets in the way, sometimes.)

safe as houses - thecanaryfalls - Leverage [Archive of Our Own]
Parker and Hardison comfort Eliot, in their weird multimillionare-convicted-felons-who-are-planning-a-life-with-him kind of way.

Set right around The Rundown Job.

|| Oh my god, this is perfect. I love the push-and-pull of what is said, and what isn't said, and the way the author makes both of those mean something. Nnf.

"Chanyeol, my favorite Korean," Zitao says when Chanyeol picks up the phone. He can practically hear the narrowing of Chanyeol's eyes.

"What do you want?"

"Can't I just call to say hello?"

|| Um. I'm shallow and also like fake relationships. Okay? Okay. Also, I like the way this one ends; swifter but with significantly less drama, and a kind of looking-forward.

Spring, Summer, Fall - longleggedgit - Big Bang (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Some relationships take longer to figure out than others.

|| Oh, I liked this. I don't have enough of a handle on Taeyang's personality--on or off-stage to really know how this hit me, in that respect--but I really enjoy this GD: settled and knows what he wants in so many respects, kind of a wild person in others. Loved the ending.

Jean becomes progressively more protective of the worst possible candidate.

|| Oh my god, this is delightful. I like Jean so much--I've always liked Jean so much, I think including him in the cast of main characters is a stroke of genius, an outside, selfishly, goodly human character who is frustrated and befuddled and drawn to the crazy three--but anyway. Yes. J'accepte.

The ending kills me.

Clint and Natasha ruin Christmas.

|| So lovely--everyone is variations on clever, which is hard to do. A lot of writing makes all clever sound the same, so this is a breath of fresh air, and just as funny and kistchy and fast-paced as you'd expect of a scene from the movies. Maybe even better.

conundrum cordis - keptein - Welcome to Night Vale [Archive of Our Own]
The first time Carlos notices it, they’re in bed, enjoying a Saturday night in. Cecil lies back, a satisfied sigh falling from his lips, and Carlos lays his head on Cecil’s chest, fingers intertwining over his stomach. He’s lying on Cecil’s left side, and he settles, snuggles closer, expecting to hear that faint rhythm, but –

Nothing. Carlos frowns and listens harder, pressing his ear more fully against Cecil’s chest. “What are you doing?” Cecil asks, laughing a little.

|| Very sweet. I really like how Carlos and Cecil are with each other, here, and the ending is not whoa in a painful way, but in a glowy (literally) way. Very worth it.

Mostly void, partially stars - dee - Welcome to Night Vale [Archive of Our Own]
This is largely based on archetypalboner's post on Tumblr wherein ey muses: i wish the night vale fandom were less overwhelmingly trusting of carlos [...] what if carlos isn’t who he says he is. what if night vale is all an experiment carlos is running.

And I thought: Sure. Why not?

People ask him, sometimes, what it’s like to be, y’know. Intimate with someone with no Eyes. It’s not that they have anything against the Eyeless, said people always hasten to add. But it is sort of creepy, right? Outsiders can’t help the way they are, sure. But still. Being… like that with one? Weird. How could Cecil possibly be sure Carlos really Sees him? How can Cecil be sure he really Sees Carlos, without Eyes to gaze back into his own?

|| The tags say mostly angst, but oh--the ending. My heart.

Daniel sends their whole improv group an e-mail saying "check this out its fun1!1" and a link to a web comic called The Adventures of Spaceman Spiff.

|| I know I've read this before, but god is it delightful. I love the way it lets Calvin and Susie grow apart, but still care for each other; it feels grown-up and still really hopeful and delightful at the same time. Plus, a good Susie POV is hard to beat. Excellent.

and every map is blank - gyzym - Welcome to Night Vale [Archive of Our Own]
It's -- topography, Carlos thinks, of a person, of two people, it's so complicated, it's so much easier to just go it by yourself. He doesn't want to hurt Cecil but he doesn't want to keep any part of himself from Cecil, either, and it scares him that that's true, and it scares him to know it's what Cecil wants.

|| So, a tale of two lovers learning each other, once again--but when gyzym makes them strike against each other--oh. Oh. The last section, in particular, got me, viscerally. (I'd rather that Carlos wasn't from Wisconsin, I want, terribly, the story of Carlos growing up in immigrant family, somewhere in the southwest, a Carlos who curses in Spanish, and maybe tries to call home, and and and, but. Anyway.)

Further Materials Toward a Theory of the Man-Child – The New Inquiry
Like the nice guy from your grad-school program who tries to cover up his hurt feelings by concocting a general theory that explains why he never got a text after his one-night stand, the book portrays the Young-Girl as vain, frivolous, and acquisitive. She serves the traditional female role of reproducing the population and social order, but here, the social order is corrupt. Therefore, Tiqqun suggests, their intervention requires an ironic performance of misogyny. The question remains: Why is misogyny their only option? And why are so many ­thoughtful people ready to accept that a layer of irony suffices to turns hateful language into the basis of a sound critique?

We believe that Tiqqun has mistaken its object.

|| An EXCELLENT essay, and one that rang true--not only for ManChildren in others, but for the ManChild in myself, who shies away from conviction like it's leprous. Really, really interested in the ending.

Exclusive - Chapter 1 - copperbadge - Marvel, The Avengers - Ambiguous Fandom [Archive of Our Own]
There are a thousand questions I want to ask. How he's dealing with losing a world, and for that matter with finding a new one. How he's learned about modern technology, what he thinks of history, what he hoped for when he put the uniform on again. It's hard to speak, however, over his grief. And I reason, perhaps a little guiltily, I have two weeks here. I can ask later.

Still, I'm opening my mouth to speak when Jarvis does instead.

"Captain, our guest has an engagement."

"I do?" I ask, looking up.

"Right," Captain Rogers says, and looks determined. "I'm supposed to take you to see Clint and Natasha."

It appears my carefully thought-out plan for how to approach the Avengers is being preempted. By the Avengers.

|| OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS. I kept aching while reading it--the way you do when you see a stranger do something so utterly, relentlessly HUMAN that the world expands and constricts a little--these are the Avengers, flawed and prickly and COMPLETELY team. Furthermore, copperbadge creates an underlying plot in the person and backstory of Bruce/the Hulk, that is just brilliant as a focusing device.

Not to mention the reveal at the end, which had me grinning at the screen and waving my hands like a lunatic. Extremely recced.

Crowning Glory - lazulisong - Star Trek (2009) [Archive of Our Own]
Spock is not proud of her hair, because pride is an emotion, and vanity is worse, but it is long and straight and shines blue-black-green like the pictures of the ravens she sees in the holos that Mother brings from Earth for her. It is longer than any other girl's at school, kept braided and looped up in the simple, childish verison of the style she will wear as an adult of her clan. It is undeniably Vulcan, not like her eyes or her nose or especially her ears or build. Nobody mocks her for her hair.

|| Oh my god, the ENDING.

Clint Barton has an ongoing and complex relationship with libraries, used bookstores, and that one box of his mom's romance novels he found in the coat closet when he was five.

|| AL:KSDJ:ALJDSA:L AHHHHHHHHHHHH. I'm not crying, it's just raining on my face. God, characters having feelings about books and escape and families and running augh. It took me a bit to realize the numbers where Clint's ages, but it's lovely. The last section (not the epilogue) is KILLER.
