is my stereo on - idolaters - Animorphs - Katherine A. Applegate [Archive of Our Own]
Marco clings to Ax for dear life while imagining being put on trial for war crimes. Exactly the right mix of sweet and funny and totally depressing.

In the Time of Stones - magicgenetek - Babylon 5 [Archive of Our Own]
Under the burning eye of Cartagia, the only people Vir, Londo and G'Kar can turn to is each other. Londo gains and loses a second chance, G'Kar sees things he could not before, and Vir begins to grow up.

This section takes place just after the whipping scene in 4x3, The Summoning.A ton of thanks to Avelera for helping me write and tame this fic!
Happens sometime between 4x3, The Summoning, and 4x4, Falling Toward Apotheosis.Takes place at the end of 4x4, Falling Toward Apotheosis, during the eye removal scene, and the days afterward.Takes place during 4x5, The Long Night, after Cartagia's death but before Vir starts drinking.Takes place after 4x5, The Long Night.
Alternate summery: Taking down a sadistic emperor with a party of three isn't easy, especially when one of the three is being tortured by the emperor, the second is a nervous wreck and the third is Londo Mollari. Vir, G'Kar and Londo only have each other to rely on; that will have to be enough to survive Cartagia.

In Flagrante - Amatara - Babylon 5 [Archive of Our Own]
Three times Londo and G'Kar were caught in the act: one happy, one angry, one sad.

Londo and G'kar over the years, in all their comedy and tragedy. Sniff.

Every Shining Thing - shell_and_bone - Babylon 5 [Archive of Our Own]
Fantastic Centauri and Narn worldbuilding, in their respective mythologies. And some contemplation of Centauri death dreams, and G'Kar just being so steady and understanding while Londo rages at the universe. This made my heart ache.

Ghost in the Shell - SoloMoon
Tom isn’t quite sure how he ended up helping Eva run a support group for ex-hosts, or why his high school crush is still interested in him given their complicated history, or how he managed to become so fascinating to tabloid reporters, or why Jake feels the need to feel guilty for so many things that are not his fault.

But he’s going to have to figure everything out pretty quickly, because ex-hosts are dying at an alarming rate, and no one but him seems to notice or care. Much as he doesn’t want to get involved, Tom is pretty sure he sees a pattern emerging: that someone, somewhere out there, is getting the worst kind of revenge.

This story picks up a few weeks after the end of the war, and will go through pretty much the entire year following the end of the war.

Most Humane of Princes - ConvenientAlias - Animorphs - Katherine A. Applegate [Archive of Our Own]
In which Cassie is the leader of the Animorphs instead of Jake. And it's hard to keep the moral upper hand when you're leading a guerilla force against an interplanetary empire. Sometimes it's hard to even keep yourself together.

the warmth of your doorways - gyzym - Leverage [Archive of Our Own]
Don't let me in with no intention to keep me.

The story of Eliot's feelings for Parker and Hardison, told through a series of vignettes set from S2 to S5. Angsty and painful and great.

like you know i am better than the worst thing i ever did - postcardmystery - Leverage [Archive of Our Own]
“I’m goin’ to die for them,” he says to Sophie, before he ever says it to Nate, and it is not a simple statement of fact but a barebones confession, the helpless bleeding of a wound that he was too smart to not know had been made but he’d been putting pressure of for years, hoping that with spit and a prayer that he could make it heal, but he never could, isn’t sure that the stitches that could close that wound have even been invented. “Yes,” she says, “And how long have you known that?”

An Eliot Spencer character study.

We all defend the role we play - Anonymous - Hamilton - Miranda [Archive of Our Own]
Wherein Hamilton is a ghost and haunts Burr after death. It distills down their relationship so perfectly, all the fucked up ins and outs of it, and really it's just the Hamilton/Burr fic I wanted.

"Jack has team spirit. Rose has alcohol. The Doctor has issues." Or, why it's never a good idea to play drinking games with a Time Lord. Beautiful and atmospheric, leaving you vaguely breathless and aching.
