“Have you ever –” Jimin says, and then stops. He lifts his elbow a little and peeks sideways at Taehyung, before he drops his arm over his eyes again.

|| Jimin and V, the first kiss that they mean for real. (OKAY I DON'T??? ACTUALLY BELIEVE??? THAT I HAVEN'T SAVED THIS??? But maybe I haven't, and all one really needs to know is I just tried to kudos it again. In lieu of that, here I am, possibly saving it again.)

not funny - applecrumbledore - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
This whole thing feels so weird, like they're betraying some clause of the homosocial bro code that says it's only for fun, you can't actually be gay, like they're letting someone down. But on the other hand, being with each other is the most natural thing they've ever done.

|| Oh, this was great, and kind of achey, surrounding a meet the parents kind of thing. CW for implied racism against Ransom. The build is tense and done well, for a pairing that's basically got no boundaries or distance by the time the series even starts.

let's get going - gangbang - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
"Spit it out," Taehyung huffs, after Jimin's opened his mouth, paused, and closed it one too many times. He's careful, usually, but this is too much.

"I—" Jimin pauses, before finishing furiously under his breath, "I think I lost my dildo."

"You what?" Taehyung feels like he's been hit with a sledgehammer.

|| This was strangely lovely--hijinks-y and lighthearted, but Jimin and Taehyung love each other just as much as they should, and are awkward and sweet in just the measures that they should be, and Taehyung is overwhelmed by Jimin and it's just. All very nice.

Love on Top - bazooka - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jimin flushed and fumbled with the bag, almost dropping one of the styrofoam containers as he fought to pull it out. "They were out of your favorite so I got the other one you get sometimes, but—"

"You should go home, Jimin. Get some sleep."

"No," Jimin said, voice quiet as he stared down at the shrink-wrapped ramen in his hand.

|| I liked this a lot, and the above illustrates a big part of why--Jimin isn't pushy or demanding, but he's sure of himself--what he wants, and what actions he's going to take, even as he takes others' feelings into account and wants them to be well. It's a really good characterization--especially, for me, since he's the omega in this. May stand on its own, but these particular abo dynamics make more sense in the context of the linked Namjin.

Sic Transit Gloria - Chapter 1 - taethereal - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jimin leans back against the headboard, a pillow tucked tightly between his knees. He doesn't know how this happened, or more specifically, why it's happening now, but the only person he knows who can help is Taehyung. Taehyung presented as an alpha when they were only fourteen, his pheromones strong enough for Jimin to smell from a mile away. Jimin had held out hope for far too long that he'd come into alpha status as well, but by the time they started college, he'd contented himself with life as a beta. At twenty-two, he never expected for something like this to happen so suddenly.

|| ......Listen. Surprisingly sweet. Ah--there's a second chapter--I didn't even realize. I kind of suggest stopping after the first.

where songbirds nest - markerlimes (sunmi) - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“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.

maybe tomorrow (maybe next year) - Sandrine Shaw (Sandrine) - Generation Kill [Archive of Our Own]
Iraq did a number on both of them, no matter how much they pretended they were fine afterwards; it ate them up alive and spat out their mangled remains. It takes Nate years to acknowledge that. Takes Brad even longer. Sure, OIF was a clusterfuck of epic proportions, but they're fucking Marines – they make do, they deal with whatever shit gets thrown at them and don't let it get to them. Except when they do.

But that's just the thing: you can't take in the bigger picture when you're too close, even less when you're part of it. You inevitably get lost in the details, and you need to take a step back or ten to see the whole thing.

|| GK fic: always good for feeling like you've been kicked in the sternum and then helped up by someone who won't stop calling you a bunch of rude names.

Parker and Hardison comfort Eliot, in their weird multimillionare-convicted-felons-who-are-planning-a-life-with-him kind of way.

Set right around The Rundown Job.

|| Oh my god, this is perfect. I love the push-and-pull of what is said, and what isn't said, and the way the author makes both of those mean something. Nnf.

“You’re an absolute idiot,” she tells him, shortly. “Did it ever occur to you that I agreed to marry you, Aleksis Kaidonovsky? You didn’t steal me or force me into it. I said yes. I’m wearing your damned ring here on my finger. The next time you cheapen one of my decisions, including the one I made when I married you, I am going to drag you out of this room by your hair and I will remove your one remaining kidney personally. And then I will feed it to the dogs.” She scowls. “Now sit up. You’re bleeding through your other bandage.”

It's not about being unmade; it's about remaking, one aching step at a time.

And oh, is it. These are clearly gyzym's versions of these characters--and they ache with it, and I literally recoiled, a number of times, from what she was choosing to do to me, and oh goodness, good. Good.

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.

"Everything about Dave is wonderful, especially when it's not."

Three years after the game ended, the kids and their guardians live together as a big, goofy family, and John is so happy he could explode. The thing that makes him happiest is Dave. They are the best snugglebros and everything is perfect.

Except that people are giving John looks like he's missing something important here, and he's not sure he wants to figure it out...

WIPVEMBER: The One Where Charles Is Still A Lady But At Least She Gets To Do It With Erik This Time [twentysomething]
He would not hesitate to call Charlotte naive. But, despite the wicked streak in her humor, which probably stems from her sister, he would not call her childish. There is an ancient, dark sorrow inside her- no match for his own- but that suggests that she too, has looked into the hearts of men and found them wanting. However, where Erik draws a pragmatic mistrust of humanity, Charlotte adopts a foolish optimism that he- against his intention and better judgment- cannot help but find charming.

These traits aside, she has a damnable tendency to catch Erik off his guard.

Charlotte heads straight in to the "concierge" and asks for a room for herself and her husband.

Attitude Adjustment - thefourthvine - Top Gun [Archive of Our Own]
Maverick's watching the planes overhead, thinking about never flying in one of them again. Never feeling the jet engines rumble, never riding 45 tons of steel and fire into the blue. 

Never losing again - never falling out of the sky, never bailing out, never looking at the body of a friend whose death is his fault.

It's a tradeoff he's willing to make.

Okay, aside from healing cock--yep, that's what it is, let's not front, although the dialogue is spot-on and part of the catalyst also--this is fascinating. Maverick is a crazy character to get your head in, and I love the trip there. Also the ending is r-i-g-h-t.

postcardmystery: you've been acting awful tough lately
“You remember that time I wasn’t dead?” says Bucky, and Steve, not remotely ashamed about the fact that he’s crying, says, “Yeah. Yeah, I do.”

“Feels awful familiar right about now, don’t it?” says Bucky, and Steve grabs him and holds on tight, says, “You have no idea.”

“I need a fuckin’ drink,” says Bucky, his voice breaking, and Steve says, “Whatever you like. Just never do that again, or I’ll kill you myself.”

“Promises, promises,” says Bucky, and Steve grips him tighter.
