“FN-2187 was real, right?” She sounds very young again. “Please tell me he was real."

"I'm real,” said Finn, who was on his first patrol since his back healed. “And my name’s Finn now.”

Her eyes widened. “You have a name?

Or: The resistance is starting to get stormtrooper defectors. Finn helps them out.

|| For all that I don't really feel shippy about this movie at all, the gen keeps making me cry like a baby. (Some punctuation errors.) I think because they're all about hope, and horizons expanding.

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.

Habits - noraebangbang - EXO (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Somehow, nineteen-year-old prostitute Baekhyun finds himself in possession of one teenage boy named Jongin who refuses to leave him alone.

|| This ends up a really cute found-family fic; I really enjoyed everyone's dynamics, even if they're mostly vaguely-EXO shaped, I'm totally down. (I loved them going to his graduation, so good.) Tagged Baekhyun/Kai, but it's actually Baekhyun & Kai--their effect and strengthening of each other. I really really enjoyed it.

this time around - andnowforyaya - K-pop, B.A.P [Archive of Our Own]
"Do you wanna get married," Daehyun says, and Youngjae's fork clatters to his plate. Daehyun's wearing this ridiculous pink t-shirt that Youngjae swears he threw out ages ago, smiling behind his sunglasses. He reaches over and twirls Youngjae's spaghetti onto his own fork. Eats it like it's the last slice of cheesecake in the bakery.

|| Oh, this is a lovely future fic. Daehyun is a pest, BAP is supportive, Daehyun and Youngjae are (improbably, but it's lovely) out.

it's just home - screamlet - Boy Meets World, Girl Meets World [Archive of Our Own]
“We’re waiting for Maya’s mom,” Riley said. “Ms. Sajadieh won’t leave until she comes to pick her up and Maya said her mom was working and she’s probably late because of the trains and I said we could take her home but Ms. Sajadieh said she couldn’t do that so could we wait for Maya’s mom, please?”

Cory was about to say something, but Riley interrupted.

“WE CAN’T JUST LEAVE HER HERE,” Riley screamed. 


“Wow,” Cory said. “This is familiar.”

|| I baaaarely watched Boy Meets World other than at random episodes caught at my grandma's, but even then I knew there was an unaddressed love triangle, and I'm so glad fandom's coming in with the OT3. Really really lovely family fic, this and the sequel. Really really.

Korra and Asami three years after the series finale, continuing to have their happy ending.

In Wade We Trust (We Are So Screwed) - dentalfloss - The Avengers (Marvel Movies), The Avengers (Marvel) - All Media Types, Deadpool - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
“Wade Wilson dropped by last night,” Clint explained, like it was any other Friday. “Brought pizza and beer.” There was a thoughtful silence through the phone and then:
“You had a pizza party with Deadpool.” Phil said and Clint slid down the couch onto his back. Yeah, that pretty much summed up the situation.

Or: the one where Clint does something nice for Wade, and Wade decides to never let him go.

|| I barely know Deadpool at all, but I loved him in this, and I loved, loved, loved his relationship with Phil, and the spaces he and Clint and Phil etched out for and around each other. The other Avengers are good too.

celestial mechanics - Lirazel - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
It was as close to perfect as a plan could be. Which is to say: not quite.
Myungsoo had plans and Howon had a dream, but the future is never that simple, no matter how certain it had seemed.

|| I'm too tired to give this a proper save, but here goes: long, satisfying, good. ABO that reads mostly like a figuring-out-soulbond story (which is why it worked for me so well), but warning with the worldbuilding: its founding conceit is that people can't resist heats, and so the soulbond is instigated by Hoya and Myungsoo having non-consensual sex (for both parties). Both of them are messed up over it, but I DON'T think the fic really deals with how horrible of a world that would be, and sometimes it was distracting, a sick jolt of oh GOD that is AWFUL. Part of the fic's interest--especially at the end--is Hoya and Myungsoo's interest in being activists against the stereotypes etc, but it feels a little tacked on.

Over all though, a really sweet, satisfying story about people falling in love. Really, really romantic: growing up, growing into each other, learning (and wanting) to make decisions together. Additional warning for two scenes of parental abuse, not extended or graphic.

It's Like This Old Inuvit Story I Knew
Thursday morning, Ray woke up with a Mountie sitting at the foot of his bed.

He blinked twice, debated going back to sleep, or indulging in whatever tripped-out fantasy his brain had supplied that night. The Mountie made the decision for him, and when he turned around, Ray saw a totally unfamiliar face with strong, handsome lines and white hair cut neatly.

"Um, hi," he said awkwardly.

|| Looks like I'm tagging old Due South like old HP, as I go along, and with tremendous fondness. (I will say, old DS tends to be much better.) Anyway, if somehow you haven't read this yet, go, and be merry, if you have, read it again, it's short, and oh so sweet.

Pendergast Family Lore - Anonymous - Easy A (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
They've never set out to be cool parents or anything, because then you end up like poor Rhiannon's parents; offering kids inappropriate  bongs and really inappropriate food. Plus, Rosemary hasn't been braless in more than two decades and she really doesn't plan on starting now, you can't give gravity that kind of opening. And Olive spends so much time rolling her eyes in their general direction she's surprised she hasn't damaged something. But god knows, they all love each other like breathing, like murder, like a choice.



In words that are not just screaming about my thematic kinks, this is unabashedly lovely; Rosemary and Dill (ROSEMARY AND DILL HER PARENTS' NAMES ARE *ROSEMARY* AND *DILL* AND THEY NAMED THEIR DAUGHTER *OLIVE* oh holy shit how did I not see that earlier ANYWAY) are delightful, just as they are in the movie. A feel good treat of a read.

No Matter How Far Away You Roam - lady_ragnell - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“I was wondering if you might come home with me.” Merlin stops mid-rant and stares at him, and then down at his panini again, and back at Arthur. This is a panini of lies and pain. He can tell already.

“For Christmas? I’ve got an uncle and a mother and a sister waiting for me at home, in case you hadn’t remembered, I’m not going home with you just because you’re a workaholic.” 

“No, it’s. My mum might be under the impression that we’re a little bit married.”

In which Merlin gets conned into spending Christmas with Arthur's family and pretending to be his husband, because somehow this is his life.

|| In which, if you suspend disbelief, it is as delightful as it says on the tin.

Reconstruction Site - disco_vendetta (brinn) - Pacific Rim (2013) [Archive of Our Own]

The vast majority of Jaeger pilots can drift with each other, it’s just a matter of fit. If someone gave you a pair of running shoes that were three sizes too big, technically you could still use them - stuff the toes, tighten the laces, adjust your gait - but a co-pilot, a partner, is custom-made for you, molded to the shape of you. Try running with the real thing after a lifetime of knock-offs. You might as well have wings.

|| Okay! This gives an explanation for why Raleigh is so set on Mako from the very beginning--as a trained pilot, he's aware of her mind from the get go, and knows she's a perfect fit. I like. However--I was trying to figure out why I actually, kinda, really hated this as I read it--and it's because it's absolutely worshipful. There's nothing wrong with either of them, there's nothing wrong with their relationship, and there are no edges, nearly, anywhere.

HOWEVER. There's a moment, near the end, that is absolutely wonderful, and I'm saving it for that. You'll know it. It's about Easter.

Play It Again - Chapter 1 - metisket - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

“Laura wants to lure the kid in with food and kindness and make a pet of him, like a feral cat. Derek wants to have him arrested for stalking. They’re at an impasse. (And the rest of the family is staying emphatically out of it in a way that suggests bets have been placed.)”

|| As good as all the saves on Pinboard are making it seem--long, plotty, interesting. The alternate-universe characters are all interesting recasts of the show-universe, and it deals with that Stiles--and really anyone in the show--are probably dealing with extensive mental issues (here PTSD, among others). This Stiles is perhaps a bit too clever? And exceedingly good at manipulating others. But I've seen all of two episodes of the show, what do I know.

That part where you have to meet the family - rallamajoop - xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
If you think hiding a relationship from living relatives is hard, hiding it from deceased relatives is impossible. Fortunately, it's also completely unnecessary.

|| Ah. Good. First part from Watanuki's viewpoint, second from Doumeki's, and both do an excellent job presenting how the two view the world differently, and interact with their various Elder-Others. Nice.
