Frog Kick - aliencereal - 僕のヒーローアカデミア | Boku no Hero Academia | My Hero Academia [Archive of Our Own]
“You don’t know how to swim?”

Tsuyu seems to consider this for a moment, putting a finger to her chin and tilting her head.

“Okay. I’ll teach you, then.”

|| A little slip of a thing, with hardly a fully satisfying resolution, but i loooooooovvvvvvvvvve themmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

these little powerless bones - dirgewithoutmusic - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
well what do we have here?

she’s got a forged hogwarts letter with penmanship that’s perfect down to the ink splatter; she’s got a complicated string of owls, only half of them forged, from parents to administration to ministry that’s so complicated her name ended up on the first year roll call anyway. she’s got ten arguments, four pleas, and one smothered threat on the tip of her mental tongue for why the house that comes out of this hat’s brim better not be squib

she’s got a lighter up her sleeve and an eight and a half inch wand in her belt that will never, ever work for her. 

well, says the hat, better be slytherin then

|| Short, lapslock, but enough about belief, and organizing, and hope, and alternate routes to power that I'm teary-eyed.

(I might be particularly moved by people fighting the system at this point in my life. It's a thought.)

Soft Spot - nivo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Yoongi doesn't particularly care for the well-being of the new trainee. It's just that he doesn't particularly care for prison, either, and leaving the kid to fend for himself would probably constitute criminally negligent homicide.

|| This is so fucking soft and full of promise, I think I remember making a pained noise on the subway when I read it. Nivo is so good at writing fics that speak to tenderness and that cast forward at the hopes one person has for another.

Yoongi watches out for the delicate new kid.

E-9 - 100demons - Ookiku Furikabutte | Big Windup! [Archive of Our Own]
This is it, he thinks, a hot sticky humid summer night at a baseball field, dressed in shorts and his sleep shirt, listening to the sound of Tajima’s laughter echo in the night for the last time.

It’s always comes down to this, in the end.

|| I love love Hanai/Tajima, and this gets all the things about them I love right--Tajima being all arrogance and easy acceptance of his own anxieties, insightful and joyfully insistent on it, almost so much so that his insights sound like simplifications; Hanai, overthinking and worried and just-that-bit-jealous just-that-bit-awed but so so in love with Nishiura and with baseball and easily embarassed but fundamentally, when it comes down to it, as brave as anything. Ugh. Clutches chest, etc.

Best Beloved - mklutz - 月刊少女野崎くん | Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun [Archive of Our Own]
“Hori-senpai,” Kashima stepped forward. He could see the moment she slipped back into her prince persona, clasping one of his hands between both of her own and staring into his eyes. “It would be my honour to make you my beloved wife.”

“Not a chance!” he yelled, pulling his hand back. “What the hell, Kashima? Why did you have to drag me into this?”

|| Oh, good future fic. Short, for the conceit, but gets to a good ending place. I don't love that Kashima seems to have lost a lot of her boyish presentation, but I will grudgingly allow it would help get an acting career off the ground.

Youth - taejinyo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
The first time he sees Seokjin cry, Jimin is seventeen years old, too old to not notice and too young to let it go.

"Hyung," he calls softly, "what's wrong?"

It's dark in their bedroom, and everyone else is sleeping. Namjoon's snores echo through the room, so loud that Jimin barely recognizes the sound of sniffling beneath it.

Seokjin immediately stops. Jimin peers over the side of his bunk and looks down at where Seokjin sleeps. The only thing he can see in the darkness is the bright glistening of tears in Seokjin's eyes. His breath stutters in his throat.

"Go back to sleep, Jimin."

"Are you okay?"

Jimin blinks, eyes slowly adjusting to the low light. Seokjin looks back up at him, expression gentle.

"Don't worry about me," he smiles. "I'll be fine."

|| The controlling metaphor in this is a bit much, but around it everything is soft and well-observed and a bit achey. My favorite scenes are probably this one (too old not to notice and too young to let it go UGH) and the scene in the car at the end, but again really good cameos from everyone.

welcome, ghosts - ohyousinners - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Hoseok and Taehyung end up one hour late to soundcheck, and Namjoon berates them for well over five minutes. Hoseok just loops an easy arm around Taehyung’s waist, dragging him in, leaning on him for support as he counts the seconds that Namjoon goes without breathing. They get shuffled to hair and make-up after that, and from then on Hoseok can’t breathe without inhaling the foggy, cloying scent of hair-spray. He probably can’t touch his hair without being cut by the sharp edges.

|| Short thing from a band au that feels about 20 to 30k longer, but the relationships and the fundamental conflict are developed so effectively that you can see the problems and the ultimate resolution. Really really enjoyed.

the ocean's at rest - vass - Imperial Radch Series - Ann Leckie [Archive of Our Own]
Skel is all very well. It's comfortingly familiar to most Radchaai, easy to grow and store and prepare, and very cheap. Cheap enough that it's worth Medic's having to treat a few soldiers every year for the consequences of an insufficiently varied or individualized diet. It provides the required energy and macro- and micronutrients, in a standard proportion for an an average adult citizen living in space, adjusted upward to allow for a soldier's activity levels, but no one's requirements are exactly the same, nor are they static, and eventually there are always problems. And that's not good enough for Ship's captain, comfort food or not.

|| I'd love to see more of this, but a nice character sketch in the midst of all the plot that makes up the IR books. Plus, I got actual chills from the song the author says the title comes from--it's PERFECT.

This is uncomplicatedly delightful, which is exactly what I needed right now. I love that whoever is behind the camera--Jungkook? Namjoon? A staff member? It doesn't really sound like either of them--is cracking up, I love how often the staff members crack up, it makes me feel really fuzzy about all of their working relationships.

Also I love the layout of people at that table, tbh.

Cause We're the Special Two - licornes - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
By the time he collapsed into a chair near the stereo, chest heaving, there was already a dangerous itch growing. Jeongguk recognized the change in himself immediately, that familiar need for something to make him feel the way extra practices are supposed to make him feel--satisfied, grounded, in control.

|| Oh, I thought I saved this already. A VKook I enjoyed--neither of them caricatures, leaning softly on each other and making space, Jungkook a little entitled and demanding, but Tae responding without disappearing, if that makes sense. (I was ... annoyed at the implication that everyone else would be in bed at 3 am, 1. hahahahahaha, 2. excuse you there are bts members everyone says practice too much and kookie is not one of them BUT ANYWAY other than that.)

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.

eyes big moonstruck, lu han + xiumin, r, drabble-y... | puppycat
He gets used to it.

Lu Han, Minseok discovers, craves touch the same way that Baekhyun craves attention, or Joonmyun craves acceptance, or Chanyeol craves praise.

|| Sad, and a bit sharp, and honestly, Lu Han's disregard of Minseok's boundaries makes me uncomfortable, but it's a fic as much about sensation as it is about anything, so characterization isn't quite-exactly the point.

he liked to scratch at the edges of the cuff, twist his fingers into the material and pull it tightly around his hand, or just curl his fingertips around the very bottom and hold it securely, grounding himself and stilling his itchy fingers.

it's all very discreet, and he supposes he's lucky he can stim so easily with just a big enough shirt.

romance is (almost) dead - jflawless - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
So what if Jimin didn’t have an instrument? His voice isn’t half bad, and he could probably write a song in the several weeks he has to plan his grand prom proposal. Originality isn’t that important to him, and Jimin has been watching couples pair up day after day as they get closer and closer to the big day, waiting for inspiration to hit. He’s not sure what he’s going to do, but has to do something.

|| This was really cute, ugh. (Taehyung is also in it, so this author can stay comfortably on probation. I'm watching them though.)
