dresdenfic: The Dresden Omens
In which a demon (who did not fall from grace so much as saunter vaguely downward) is sent to tempt a hero (who's reluctant at best) and has some trouble with the job.

SO DELIGHTFUL IT HURTS. A fun crossover--the 'verses of both books have been kept intact, and it's an actually unsurprisingly good tonal match--but unsurprisingly for me, my favorite parts are the way it nails Dresden and Marcone. The epilogue is not to be missed.

libraryofsol: Fic: Unreliable Narrator
Thor enjoys drinking. He enjoys it immensely.

He especially enjoys the way that the universe sees fit to constantly invent some new concoction. As if to challenge his constitution anew. Some new variation of fruit, honey, or hops, each more fiendish than the last. Thor has accepted each challenge gladly, without fear.

But he does not always win.

A morning after piece that only has one kiss in it--and that kiss is making me weak. So good for me.

libraryofsol: Fic: And All The Towers Come Down
It's not a decision. There's never a moment when Thor considers the options, when he thinks of doing anything else. For all his faults, for all his devious cruelty, Loki is still his brother. A year, ten years, a thousand years of conflict could not change that.

Thor cannot leave him there. His conscience, his blood, his heart, will not allow it.

Secrets of a Successful Marriage - valtyr - Marvel 616 [Archive of Our Own]
They should never have let him join the League. When you started letting Nazis in, you'd cleared the moral event horizon, Tony knew that. He should've kicked up more of a fuss. He should have objected when they let Crossbones join, or even Daken; murderers and worse.

How had he ended up, here, about to watch Captain America die and applaud politely?

|| Mr. and Mrs. Smith fusion. I think everyone's read this already, but it is definitely delightful. There are Nazis, fish, Pepper Potts as a BAMF, and it ends with puppies. What is waiting?

WARNING: Consent issues. Consent issues like WHOA, alongside consent PLAY.

Brad considers it a good sign that when he sits down and says, “I have to hit on you,” the guy’s only response is raised eyebrows. “Sorry. I’d hoped for more creative hazing, but I guess gay chicken appeals to the developmentally stunted.”

The eyebrows drop down into consideration. “Gay chicken is reciprocal.”

Brad lets his most charming grin answer. He’s weirdly relieved when the guy laughs and hooks Brad by an elbow, moving them away from the group he was with to a slightly less exposed, slightly less crowded stretch of wall. “Are we suitably on display here?” he asks.

Sweet Thang - MajaLi - Suits (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Mike hates spending money on himself. Harvey, on the other hand, loves it.<br />
<br />
So much better than the summary, and with an added bonus of Jessica kicking ass. The premise is pretty hard to buy, but the banter is spot-on.

But The Cat Came Back - twelve_pastels - X-Men: First Class (2011), Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“Oh, look! It’s Charles, and he’s been transformed into a cat by a malevolent government program! I wonder how I can change him back and thereby secure his love forever and ever, amen?”<br />
<br />

A Hundred Visions and Revisions - kaydeefalls - X-Men: First Class (2011), Doctor Who (2005), Avengers (Comic) [Archive of Our Own]
In which the CIA and FBI indulge in some inter-agency snooping, Erik hates Cerebro, a new mutant is found, and Charles is very distracting.<br />
<br />
The summary is flippant, but the story very much is not. A fascinating look at power structures and morality, alongside a deftly built hum of ust, so gloriously resolved. Also, the secondary characters are AWESOME--I love them all the time.

Darwin blinks. "Well," he says, "yeah. Obviously."

Voldemort's final defeat does not mean Harry Potter's troubles are over; far from it. In the aftermath of war, he returns to a Hogwarts that is fractured and divided, but this is no break that can be fixed with a spell. New owls, fading scars, surprising alliances-- and along the way, the hardest task of all, to live with it.. 

|| A wonderful post-DH eighth-year; it's Draco/Harry, but it's also about surviving, and keeping in character with the slightly-angsty, kind of rage-filled, but over-all practical, self-sacrificing, and sometimes stupidly certain characterization. Very, very much worth the read.

Pilot - novembersmith, thisissirius - The Social Network, Stargate: Atlantis [Archive of Our Own]
The first time Mark meets Eduardo Saverin, he’s not really paying attention. On top of the project proposals he keeps mocking up and Erica keeps shooting down, the red-tape the military keeps mummifying the science department in, and the overwhelming rush of adrenaline that comes from the knowledge that in three weeks, he'll be leaving the Milky Way galaxy, he also has to worry about his underlings staging a mutiny.

In the face of all the things going on in Mark's head, meeting one Air Force major doesn't register, much.

I JUST REALIZED THAT THIS IS NOT ACTUALLY A WIP, thank you the 1/1 chapter note at the top of A03, oh my god, my insides are crying and making a lasagna.

This is brilliant, and beautifully designed. I LOVE every.single.one of "the bad guys" recastings, and can't get over Rachel Weisz as Charles (I honestly thought the top right picture was McAvoy for like, thirty seconds, no lies), and Anna Kendrick as Hank--YESYESYESYESYES. The other good guys look good, but I don't know as much about their acting.

There is, however, a big announcement. It comes on a Monday. The President, the Joint Chiefs, and all the other press-seeking vultures gather and make their speeches. When Brad and Nate watch the coverage on the news that night, the editors cut from the press conference to footage of men making out with each other, in uniform, in the middle of some park.<br />

It's one thing to be a woman holding a doctorate and having to deal with the sneers and comments and ruined experiments and stolen data (not that Charlotte has much of a problem with the latter two, telepathy being what it is). It's quite another to be a woman holding a doctorate and know each dark, razor-filled thought behind every cruel smirk and mocking laugh, to feel the resentment like black oil pouring off them whenever she passes.

After defending her thesis to a lecture hall full of people just looking for an excuse to throw her out (and she knew it was true, she could feel it, and every speck of discipline and control she possessed wasn't enough shut out such an immense tidal wave of it), going for a drink is an immense relief. She and Raven choose a bar a long way from the university, far from the thoughts that had clogged her mind like weeds in a propeller, and where Charlotte is finally – finally – able to relax her guard somewhat.

First Impressions - sirona - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a spouse -- or the nearest set of curtains to hide behind, if you were to believe Mr Charles Xavier. Little does he know that he himself will soon put test to that very truth.<br />
<br />
Fusion with P&P--very, very much so. This is basically the book/movie/series reinterpreted through different names. However, there are some gorgeous moments--someone, pru, I think, mentioned that this includes the HOTTEST helping someone into a carriage moment ever, and that is QUITE. TRUE.

A Small Spark Neglected - gyzym - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Someone’s setting fires in Wizarding London, and Teddy Lupin’s going to have to marry a Potter.

Early Gyzym, and a thoroughly enjoyable romp. The elements that make her such a phenomenal writer are there--fun plots, engaging and distinctive character voices, and attention to family detail--but it's quite clearly early work when compared to some of the breathtaking tone and detail work she churns out now. Nevertheless, very, very fun.

alternatively: charles and erik douche it up in amsterdam.

"Uh huh," Raven agrees. "So, I'm going to assume by all that, that you got your clothes destabilised."

Charles will not look sadly down at himself again. Also, he will accept that today was his own fault and no one else's. "Something like that, yes."

"And there were no pants?" Raven asks, as if they can often be found randomly lying around, in case there's a shortage. Or an emergency.

"There were no pants," he says firmly. "I looked."

|| ...OH MY GOD. So, this starts off winkingly funny, gets scorchingly hot, and then winds it all down by sucker punching you in the brain. I CANNOT EVEN, just. This is so good.

1stclass_kink: Prompt Post: ROUND ONE
Alwaysagirl!Hank. I want alwaysagirl in ALL THE UNIVERSES, so this is not a surprise, but I especially want it done like this--where it looks at how the misogyny would change the character--and keep them the same--and I love it. Read this for that, if nothing else. Honestly, the Alex/Hank felt more like a side-story to the character study. (Honestly, I was a little disappointed by it ending there. I almost would've liked it better as gen, or as a piece that moved past that first moment because, as well handled as it is, it still felt slightly reductive. Delightful anyway.)
