look at me, everything looks different - Chapter 1 - elfiepike - CLC (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Finally Sorn looked up, holding her hand palms flat against the frets. Sorn’s face was soft and open but Seunghee knew that Sorn was even better at playing her part than Seunghee was.

|| This fic is tiny but it takes me apart in all the best ways; putting a quiet voice to the small uncertain sadness I've been carrying about CLC and not understanding what is up with them, and how they're doing, and this takes the two softest members and has them help each other back to this hard, hard job they've found themselves in. All in about 500 words, god, I love it so much.

Though Oft We Break - o2doko - Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle, CLAMP - Works [Archive of Our Own]
They have their revenge, and the constant threat looming over all their lives has finally passed - but both Kurogane and Fai still have a lot of healing left to do. Fortunately, neither of them has to do it alone.

[Set between the final battle and the end of the series, during their convalescence in Clow Country.]

|| I loved this, but just as it captures the way everyone talks sideways at each other, leaving room for the big huge Issues they all carry around, it captures CLAMPs complete disregard for satisfying endings, lol. So--not unexpected, just. Gosh darn it!!

We all defend the role we play - holograms - Hamilton - Miranda [Archive of Our Own]
The first time Hamilton appears, it's only a little over a month since he's died.

au where Hamilton is a ghost and haunts Burr after the duel

|| hahahahahhahahaha this is fine

I really like the way this builds itself around historical events--also, how fiery and asshole-y and smart Hamilton is, as Burr is desperate and melancholy and making do. (Warning for mentioned self-harm in fic and in the next sentence.

Burr set himself on fire. Damn.)

Burr is haunted by Hamilton's ghost. Alexander has been talking for eight solid days about the importance of an independent judiciary. He doesn't have to stop for breath anymore.

This is heartbreaking, and funny, and heartbreaking.

tell me about the big bang - thebrotherswinchester - Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015), Star Wars - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
The seventh night, Finn gets back late from physical therapy in the medbay. He’s limping maybe a little less, getting used to the new pull of scar tissue over his back, regaining flexibility in his spine. The medics keep telling him he’s pushing it, he doesn’t need to go so fast. Finn ignores them, because this is a war, and he is a soldier, and the Resistance doesn’t have any use for broken boys. 

The seventh night, he walks into Poe’s room to find his mattress right next to Poe’s bunk. Poe is already in bed, cheek smushed into the pillow, breathing slow and deep. D’Qar’s twin moons shine in from the window, pale silver light falling across Poe’s face, his dark hair. One of his arms is half off the edge of the bed, curving toward the floor.

Finn crawls onto his mattress and slides beneath the blankets.

|| I LOVE FINNNNNNNNNNN. This fic is Finn/Poe, and it's lovely and aching, but gOD I love Finn, traumatized, scared, brave, selfish kid with his entire heart to give.

have you heard - Chapter 1 - peradi - Star Wars - All Media Types, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015) [Archive of Our Own]
"Was FN-2187 a Stormtrooper? I heard he was. Is he?"

It's a woman's voice, trembling and very young. 

Finn pulls the transmitter to his mouth. His lips brush it as he speaks. "Yes. I was. I was, and I'm not anymore. My name is Finn. What's yours?"

The rush of static is a sigh of relief. "They call me Fiver."

|| I started crying here, and still haven't stopped. Finn sparks a revolution.

Currently the first part of 3, but works as a standalone. Good gOD, fuck me up. I would read a million of these the-stormtroopers-rebel fics. A million.

“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.

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.

Keep Calm And Curbstomp HYDRA - tielan - Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Maria plants her feet and sighs. “I never liked you, Jack, even before I realised you were so damn stupid.”

He blinks. She doesn’t. And then Rollins’ three cohorts go down like the Triskelion’s spires, and Rollins gets a ‘brainshock’ arrow in the forehead.

|| The author casually using the fall of the Triskelion spires as an analogy in Maria Hill's POV should give you a sense of how tightly wound and focused this is. Nice.

Hoseok shifts back up, and stretches languidly. “Come on, hyung,” he says, “ramyun break.”

“It’s two,” says Yoongi, snorting, “and it’s snowing.”

“Come on,” says Hoseok, a little more insistently, “we barely get any time to ourselves. Namjoon’s out cold, and everyone’s at home, and I’m sure we’ll be back under an hour flat.” His voice drops, a little lower, a little quieter than before. “Please?”

|| I really liked this. The softness and stylization of the narration is off-set by the boys sounding like themselves, and it's angstiness is honestly edged by their kind of... determined hope. I don't ship this in particular, but I liked it a lot. (I think.... this made me ship.... rapper line..... actually..... working around the production tables oh no /o\)

wakinghyde: Fanfic: Implication
Leo sees it happen only a few feet before him and freezes for a moment when his shy euphoria is broken down and his heart leaps a little too high because this wasn’t supposed to happen.

|| Sometimes a little choppy with early-writer forced mysteriousness, but I really like this Leo, and his mix of focus, resolve, and absolute uninterest in the unimportant. Don't think VIXX is treated this poorly, but I like the Leo in this enough to keep it.

It takes heartbreak but it doesn't do the overselling that less subtle, graceful authors resort to. (But seriously fuck you.)

Sleight of Hand - Fahye - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
Love is the hardest thing you will ever do in your life.

|| Graver and happier than the series, both, and so, close enough to what I want for them, always. I will never not forgive the manga for fucking up their storyline irredeemably.

The tone is a little weighted, sometimes distracting.

Sam knows it’s going to be one of those days when he walks into his kitchen first thing in the morning to find the Winter Soldier already there, staring at the doorway—at Sam—with unblinking eyes.

Sam stops in his tracks and gives himself a generous five seconds to sort out his thoughts, some of which are dammit Steve and fight or flight’s not gonna cut it here and at least I’m not wearing the Cap boxers.

|| I love this. I love this Sam, and I love this Bucky, and god, I want all the gen for this movie, all the shippy gen, put it in my grasping fingers and let me rub it on my FACE.

The Winter Soldier is moving slowly.
