"My brother is in a polygamous relationship with my two childhood friends," Taehyung blurted out. "And I may or may not need ice cream to recover from the trauma."

|| Not much to it, other than Tae's despair, but it rides on the coattails of supposing a happy and comfortable Jin/Jimin/Jungkook, so like. WHY NOT.

Reasonable Suspicion - Laimelde - The Avengers (Marvel) - All Media Types, Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Clint's new neighbours are a friendly bunch, and enjoy having him and Phil over for drinks on occasion. But pretty soon they notice that Clint often comes home with bruises, and start to worry.

placeholder come and take mine - shikae (39smooth) - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jimin doesn’t walk in. Jimin doesn’t announce his presence with a loud call. Jimin stands there in the doorway, clutching at his snapback absently. He stands there, almost frozen in place, and sees Hoseok run his mouth down the side of Yoongi’s neck, both their backs facing him, one hand sneaking up the front of Yoongi’s worn-out white shirt that he always wears at home.

|| Companion to "and you did it for me," a romance from the outside. The maknae sections are the best--it gets a little heavy handed in the other ones, but still. *drags hands down my face*

Soft Spot for the Hell Raisin' Boy - ifeelbetter - The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
The Winter Soldier takes an interest in Sam Wilson. Bucky Barnes wants to tell him how to be Steve Rogers's best friend.

|| I love Sam in this, and it's a soft, friendly read. I know someone out there is writing the epic that'll make it all work, but in the meantime, I am super happy to read all the fix-it quick jobs that are sweet in all the right places (aka all over).

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.

|| NEW DUE SOUTH FIC. OFC POV, but she is DELIGHTFUL, just like this whole fic. It's Speranza, so. I happily slot this into one of the many happy endings which I have imagined for Ray and Fraser.

“Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”

The Emissary - Beth Winter - Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi | Spirited Away [Archive of Our Own]
"I need a guide." The inspector looked younger when she smiled, like a university student. "I live in Tokyo, but I grew up in a small town like this. You look like someone who knows every path on the mountain, Hiromi."

"Yes, Inspector Ogino."



"My name is Chihiro."

|| KEENS. This is perfect--Chihiro is no-nonsense and practical and OLDER, and the integration of folklore into the story is exquisite, and their antagonistic relationship to humans is beautiful, and the easy, easy, EASY way this Chihiro breathes a history beyond this moment--SO GOOD FOR ME. Not to mention the narrator, Hiromi.

“Um, Alex?” Crosby says, sounding harried. “Oh, shit — look, can you come pick me up from the airport? Geno can’t fly out until late tonight, and I just — you’re the only other person I know here.”

“You called me Alex!” Alex says, delighted. “Crosby, so proud of you.”

“Okay, let’s not get crazy,” Crosby says, sounding uncomfortable expressing feelings like natural and normal adoration of Alex. That he managed to get it together and tell Zhenya anything is a miracle. “But can you do it?”

“I am coming right now, stay warm, Sid,” Alex says, pleased at how far they’ve come. When they finally make it back on the ice against each other, he will check him into the boards so lovingly.

|| AAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. File under things I didn't know I was missing: an uber-ridiculous Ovie POV. I straight up am saving this halfway through the fic.

Superpowers - websandwhiskers - The Avengers (2012), Thor (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Darcy's not sure how that all translates into the life of a reformed Bond villain, but she's a hundred and twelve percent certain that she's right about all of it, because this is her superpower.

Okay, maybe it's not a superpower, but Darcy's really good at reading people – also, at seeing patterns. This is how she ended up playing PA to not only Jane, but also Dr. Banner and, on occasion, Tony freakin' Stark. She doesn't really know a proton from a protein, it took her about three weeks working for Jane to figure out that it wasn't “rosenbridge” but Einstein, Rosen, bridge, three words despite how Jane pronounces them, and she takes a certain sick joy in declaring all Tony's gadgets “shiny” in her best unimpressed voice (even if the unreleased and unnamed device that has replaced her iPod is pretty sweet.)

metisket: beautiful ideas
So it cracks me up that the entire plot is pretty much Mike Stamford’s fault, and yet he manages to completely dodge the fallout. SIR, I SALUTE YOU.

Equally, it cracks me up that ACD Mike Stamford spent a lot of time making it clear to John that this, this living with Sherlock thing? WAS NOT HIS IDEA. Whereas modern Mike Stamford seems to find it all hilarious.

In conclusion: Mike Stamford fic, because I admire the man’s style.

This is hilarious and delightful, and absolutely an ode to Mike Stamford's style.

Obvious; Or, Greg Lestrade Is Good At Detecting And Has Five Pounds To One That Sherlock And John Will Shag - the_arc5 - Sherlock (BBC) - Fandom [Archive of Our Own]
Lestrade isn't the reasoning machine Sherlock is, but that doesn't mean he's blind. And it's obvious to him, if nobody else, that a certain dynamic duo could use a nudge in the right direction.

It says something about me that now, after all the Homestuck fic, this feels like sap. Someone comes back from the dead; people are bad at love; but it's sweet! (Homestuck! The stupid, stupid intricate canon that will make you more invested in the largest number of characters YOU HAVE EVER LOVED [24]). [How are all of my tags about it now, self control, do not own.]
