we ain't born typical - paxlux - The Losers (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
The wind's out of the south and Cougar's restless.

|| The summary's misleading--this is very much in Jake's POV, and it runs and trips on itself in run-ons and asides, quips and idle curiosity, but still, through that, stays focused. The style's honestly at least half the fun; the rest is atmosphere and warmth.

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.

“Do you ever think about those birds,” Taehyung brings up suddenly. He’s never been good at controlling himself, much less around Jimin.

“Dammit Taehyung, not now,” Jimin groans fisting both hands in his hair in desperation. With the gel and hairspray coming off with sweat, he looks ridiculous. Half-frenzied and entirely too fuckable for the amount of time they have together.

“No. No,” Taehyung urges, pulling back far enough to watch the light die in Jimin’s eyes. “This is important.”

|| I almost didn't read this because the summary is ridiculous but this is SO GOOD, and I love it. It's cute as the day is long, and Taehyung is ridiculous and Jimin is suffering and they love each other a whole lot.

3-paragraph prompt ficlets. (16 total.)

|| HAVE I REALLY NOT SAVED THIS. Each of these is a delight, okay, go read it if you read kpop. There are too many to effectively review, but! little effervescent bubbles! Yay.

Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven? - elfiepike - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
The club was packed to the brim, people sweating off their make up and hairstyles and in some cases their outer layers, everyone trying to cool down with alcohol or heat up with dancing. Hoseok switched happily between the two, dancing until his friends brought him another drink, and then drinking to the cheers of "for the birthday boy!" until the bass got too powerful to resist.

|| This is so much fun. Easily one of the best "someone picks someone up" in a club fics I've ever read--there's so much genuine enjoyment, and no pressure. Plus I love how much I can see of J-Hope and Rapmon's characters: Namjoon making his awkwardness into a sell, J-Hope enjoying people and laughing so much he hiccups.

feiling: mini-dump
Hakyeon cracks open an eye to peek for the reason why. Byungjun’s got his fist in the air, ready to strike, but there’s someone behind him with their hand around his wrist, squeezing threateningly as if it intending to break it.

“Bell’s about to ring,” Taekwoon says, nonchalant and not a hair out of place. “You’re going to be late.”

|| Saving for the second ficlet, quoted above. Not a lot to it, but I enjoy the ending, and N's smug knowing-ness in the face of Leo's shyness.

Exactly What It Says on the Tin - sevenbyseven - BtoB [Archive of Our Own]
A series of pwp ficlets--all pretty cute. The driving conceit behind them seems to be: silly bandmates + touching, so, no harm there. Not a lot of interesting character dynamic work, but it delivers on the Exactly What It Says on the Tin promise. 8 so far.

吹一樣的風 - 5 leon drabbles
When Taekwoon first met Hakyeon, he felt unsettled. Sure, growing up he had always been forced to handle these kinds of people, but Hakyeon was something else than just another person who came a little too close a little too fast. Definitely something else, he thought to himself as Hakyeon cuddled up closer next to him on the train ride home that night.

|| What it says on the tin.

rain sound - glasses / close the door
Hongbin looks up from his camera's display screen as Taekwoon reenters the waiting room.

"So what'd the doctor say? Is it migraines?"


"It's four in the fucking morning." Wonshik doesn't actually know what time it is, but he does know that he went to bed at three, they have a schedule at seven, and that he wants to get every possible second of unconsciousness he can before they have to wake up. "Why are you like this."

"No, get out, you're fine. You don't want to be late for your date."

"Don't be like that," Seunghun says, grinning when Jiyong makes a face at him and ensconces himself deeper into the bedspread.

"Like what?" he asks, all wide-eyed innocence.

|| I honestly don't know what this was about (Seunghyun going to meet his Olympic swimmer friend but also then someone else I do not know there are so many people), but it was cute. Thumbs up.

Picture: Steve shyly asking Sam to be his fella
"So, uh," Sam says, "did you want to share the bed, or should I take the floor?" 

Steve gives him an exasperated look. “Yeah, Sam, take the floor. It’s the least you can do, especially after taking a leave of absence from your job to keep me sane while I hunt down my brainwashed best friend. Actually, you know what? I think you should sleep in the hall.”

|| Decent. Fun.

idyll - Leverage/Avengers Crossover snippet
"Goddamn it, Hardison," Eliot hisses when the robots descend from the sky.

"How is this my fault?" Hardison yells back. His voice is about ten octaves higher and he’s got a boatload of panic coming through.

|| Cuuuuute. Background OT3, but mostly just an excuse to see how Eliot and Captain America would function if put in the same place with the same objective. I'm about it.

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.

Figure Out The Bag I'm In - mardia - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Four times Sydney visited the Staals in Thunder Bay.

|| The genderswap AUverse I thought would never update again! Jordy POV--I wanted to see a couple more moments with the family, but having Sydney there added a nice extra element. Not my FAVORITE of the series, but really really enjoyable, continues the trend of discussing the sexism that would happen, even if it's slightly rosier than it'd be; definitely recommended.

nothing smart, or at least not very, nothing revolutionary - We'll All Float On Okay (gk fic)
It takes them three years. Nate has to come back, leave the Corps, fight through the memories, sleepless nights, apathy and never agains, and go back to college, where he works hard and doesn’t lose sleep over anyone’s life. Brad has to come back, take a trip, drink some, exercise more, feel the water closing around him again and again, go to England, go back to Iraq, live through it again and come back home again.<br />
<br />
It takes them three years to meet again under Mike’s roof and understand there’s still something from back then they haven’t dealt with yet.<br />
<br />
I found the little headers annoying, but they're even smaller than the regular text, so they're easy to skim on by; and then I enjoyed it a lot. Vignettes.
