I know I'll fall in love with you, baby - Chapter 1 - witheredleaf (micooled) - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“I, I think you might be my soulmate,” the boy stutters. And Yoongi is about to laugh because that’s ridiculous, that’s utterly preposterous. There must be a billion people out there with those exact words on their arm, and even then it’s so obviously planned, like this isn't what he says to every single fan coming here, what the fuck, and how will he explain Yoongi’s own bare wrist? Except—

Except the guy’s eyes widen even more, trained on something on the table. A sudden strange sensation traces across Yoongi’s skin. And he looks down at his arm that lies palm up against the table, at the words I think you might be my soulmate in the process of spelling themselves out across his arm in stark contrast and, well. Fuck.

|| I really enjoyed this--its greatest strength is giving JK and Yoongi both believable and understandable motivations and reactions to each other, even if some of the exact plot mechanations seemed a little overblown to me. Maknaeline friendship also really really good. Longish, and sticks the landing--always nice.

#26: catching stars to keep (the heavy heart remix) (for idyleski): kpop_ficmix
Jeon Jungkook is eighteen years, two hundred and one days, eighteen hours, thirty two minutes, and fifty five seconds old when he meets his soulmate.

|| A remix of that Jimin-doesn't-have-a-soulmate fic from Jungkook's POV, EVEN MORE FUCKING PAINFUL, but really good.

Gentle Antidote - x_los - Lord Peter Wimsey - Dorothy L. Sayers [Archive of Our Own]
At twenty-one, Harriet Vane gets her Name. It's rather longer than she expected.

|| I LOVED this. I love soulbond in general, but what I admired most about this was the near-flawless narrative style, the absolutely spot-on characterization--this IS how Harriet and Peter would operate in a world of soul Names, and how they would react to each other--and the subtle, but wonderful worldbuilding. Read with a smile on my face the entire time. If you're familiar at all with the Lord Peter novels, read.

Lead Me Home - riots - GOT7 [Archive of Our Own]
Jackson’s never had a ton of sense, which is probably why he was walking around trying to pet strange dogs and got himself bit. Thing is, it’s a full moon, and he’s starting to feel kinda funny...comeback is gonna suck.

|| I really like Jackson in this: he's that very fandom mixture of sweet frat boy, but I do think Jackson comes pretty damn close to being sweet frat boy IN THE REAL LIFE. Not always stunningly paced, and there are a couple of decisions JB makes that ... aren't totally believable, but the Jackson voice and the sheer FUN of this is worth it. PLUS, bonus werewolf Hyeri, and that's the bomb. ....Also I am weak to pining and soulbonds, nbd.

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.

Jongin’s always had people he likes best. Chanyeol’s pretty sure he’s never going to be one of those people.

Convenient Husbands - Annie D (scaramouche) - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
"It's only temporary, right?" Dean says. "Just until you're healed up, and then we'll never have to see each other again. So what do you say, Castiel, do you want to marry me or not?"

|| Well, yes, hello marriage of convenience, yes I will yes. AU, so you can come at it only barely knowing canon--like myself, although I do think that knowing it might have filled in the details of what the main big-bad was doing, but it was fine; that's not the fic's emotional center. Really enjoyed the dynamic of this; the misunderstandings are real ones.

Fastening One Heart to Every Falling Thing - thefourthvine - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Geno can't. Sidney won't.

|| Soulbond fic--in a world where everyone bonds, Geno's a born buffer, and Sid a 9+. The first half--up until Sid's concussion, is a like a sickening free-fall drop of Sidney MAKING REALLY BAD DECISIONS, but then it takes a quick upturn as he and Geno help put their lives back together. Together. Really nice.

A barbeque in Manitoba is one thing. Ending up in some freaky soulbond with Nugent-Hopkins is another.

Have I really not saved this? I've read it, like, four times. I have never re-read fic so often in a fandom before, goddamn.

Look, some mornings you wake up and little green men are invading New York City; some mornings you wake up and you can hear Captain America's voice in your head. Tony has been an Avenger long enough that he saves his freakout for important things.

Feelings Are Boring - lazulisong - Star Trek (2009) [Archive of Our Own]
This is not exactly what Jim thought the 'exploring strange new worlds and exotic civilizations' was about. Also, Vulcans are kind of crazy. Jim and Spock go through a alien ritual, which, yes, changes everything -- he's hoping for the better. Spock just wants to get through this with his sanity, if not his dignity, mostly intact.

So, so, so delightful. Also Winona is a person! A ridiculous one, but a person. LOVE IT.

Chaos War - astolat - Thor (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
It was never easy to find Loki when he wanted to hide, but he wasn't doing a particularly good job of it at the moment. Probably he didn't think anyone from Asgard would be wasting their time hunting for him while the shining ones churned their way steadily through all the realm.

Waited and waited to read this, and goodness is it worth it. I barely noticed the 35000 words go by, no lies.

Imprimatur - Chapter 1 - Closer - Suits (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Mike was raised to believe Imprint was a life-changing event for those few lucky enough to experience it. Harvey was raised to believe it was a form of mental illness. When it actually happened, neither of them noticed.

This gets major, major, major points for making me believe the world--Harvey and Mike both have ~opinions~ about Imprinting, and there are laws that deal with it. The build up is horribly frustrating in all the right ways, and the payoff is all kinds of adorable and wonderful. All done in a light, vivacious writing style. Closer: rapidly becoming one of my favorite writers.

1stclass_kink: Prompt Post: ROUND ONE
Erik has had Charles in his head before, but not like this.

For this trope, I'm really, really, enjoying the development. It's not the immediate--no, they're not really sure what's happening, no one's vomiting, it's just weird. Also, interesting characterization of Erik. Softer edges than I think he probably would have, but I especially like the way he interacts with Raven.
