One Sick Kookie - lilithlamb - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jungkook is bad at asking for help, but when a cold turns into something more serious, he doesn't have much of a choice.

|| Is this Hurt/Comfort? It probably.... It definitely is, lol. Anyway, it feels more about the relationship of all 7 members and the way they band together to take care of each other; each of their different responses feel pretty accurate, too, I really enjoyed that. Jin and Yoongi and to some extent Namjoon taking control of the situation or giving direction, Jin mothering, Jimin and Tae and Hoseok trying to provide help physically. I like that the length makes it develop as sickness does; that there's no FIXING it through them caring, but everyone's doing the best they can, once they figure it out. Gen.

Jammed - minverse - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
The rational part of Jimin's brain screams at him to remember what his mother said about strangers and vans. But the rational part of his brain is no match for really bad whiskey and Kim Taehyung.

((au where Jimin gets stuck on the interstate in the middle of a blizzard and Taehyung lives in a van))

|| Okay, apparently I didn't save this--probably read it on my phone? Maybe? Idk, too many devices to keep track of--but it's a fun romp, even if I don't QUITE buy this Tae's ability to machinate. Or that this is how snowstorms work. Ever. Doesn't matter! Fic! (Jimin's on his way to Hoseok and Yoongi's wedding, for anyone wedding-mention averse.)

never shut us down - dollyeo - GOT7 [Archive of Our Own]
Jinyoung, for all intents and purposes, isn’t really a fansite master for love. The money’s just enough to make him forget how much he can’t stand Jackson Wang.

|| Jinyoung and Jackson go way back--Jinyoung was Jackson's Korean tutor when he was still a trainee, and "somehow" he got roped into being Jackson's fansite master. Fun; lots of denial.

Coffee, Please. - troubleseason (cats_cradle6766) - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
This one, the man that's just walked in, has been a personal favorite, and somehow always, every time, Jimin gets stuck with him.

"No," Jimin says immediately, turning to look at Hoseok who has taken that exact moment to step back and flag down Yoongi to take over for him at the machines. "No, I hate you."

"Have fun," Hoseok tells him with that sort of forced cheerfulness he adopts every morning.

|| This was cute! The set-up is kind of ridiculous (o no! shocker! in fic? never!), but I really liked that Jimin never suddenly swooned, that there was a push-pull the whole way through.

Johnny Storm's in love. With Spider-man. Except no one seems to even believe Johnny when he tells them. Everyone thinks he's totally joking. What a buzzkill. Even his bff doesn't react supportively, which is rude, disrespectful, and completely awkward when Johnny walks into a time anomaly and wakes up in the future married not to his beloved Spider-man, but to Peter Parker.

Huh, no wonder Parker reacted so badly to the news.

A month before GOTSTAR's first tour, Mark has to step down as the band's drummer. Turns out that this is the least of Jaebum's problems.

|| Oh, I liked this, the twisty-tangled nature of JB's feelings and worries and insecurities, all the members' personalities--particularly Mark and Jackson, feeling very themselves, operating with their own motivations and reactions. Lots of obliviousness and pining.

you're gonna give your love to me - irnan - Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
“Oh my god,” says Natasha. “Please don’t hit on me, please.” She falls into a chair despairingly and puts her head in her hands. Such a bad idea, Jesus Christ, if they do hit on her, if they both hit on her, if the words you don’t have to choose cross anybody’s lips –

Such a bad idea.

She hears Steve put the newspaper on the table; the kettle boils; then there’s silence. Finally James says solemnly, “Nobody’s going to hit on you in this house. By my Aunt Ida’s grave I swear it.”

“Everybody hated your Aunt Ida,” says Steve.


In which Natasha Romanov gets dosed with sex pollen, pines self-indulgently for her best friends, dreams a lot, and has to deal with being dated.

|| I love this. I haven't seen AoU, and I likely never will, but this deals with that love plot and lays it gently to rest, all while giving us back Natasha fucked-up for her Actual Reasons and also Steve and Bucky being great. No non or dub con, Natasha rides the sex pollen out.

a nice girl, slightly dilettanteish - transversely - Chihayafuru [Archive of Our Own]
“I am by nature given to flights of extreme perspicacity. It’s your turn to add a flavor, don’t make it messy. It has to retain this air of delicacy, since it’s a flavor expressing Snowmaru’s winter melancholy. Don’t think that simply because he is a snowman, he isn’t prone to winter melancholy, that is a rookie mistake.”

|| Parts of this are hard to follow, but I really enjoyed Shinobu--incisive, vain, insecure, aware of herself as a prodigy but turned-topsy by the ephemeral nature of that term. And weird. Which is IMPORTANT. I also really liked her interactions with the adults--that she takes herself totally seriously, but they can see how that seriousness is letting herself down, limiting her.

It's a good thing Minseok doesn't have a complex about his short height, because all his friends seem to tower over him “Hyung, this is Lu Han.”

|| Band AU, set in Korea. riots does sympathetic but emotionally distant narrators really well, in a way I find very personally satisfying. It's not super surprising she seems to gravitate towards the more introverted members of EXO. I like the development a lot.

Hongbin is a hoobae, but he debuted long enough ago that he doesn’t need to feel like a rookie around someone like Myungsoo.
“They’re really great, sunbae,” Hongbin says, and he sounds sincere, but not overly enthusiastic like some people might. “You have a really good eye.”

A little frisson of pleasure snakes up Myungsoo’s spine, the kind he feels whenever someone compliments his pictures and he can tell they mean it.

|| I really liked this, even though I don't really know Infinite at all--the idea of Hongbin having someone to bond with over his photography is really pleasing to me, and I liked the pacing of this, and Myungsoo's obliviousness.

But it's one thing to know who Sidney Crosby is, and another to pick him out of a lineup.

They said that questions pooled there unanswered, so that one could stay for ten years—or a hundred—and only gather confusion like a stone gathers moss. They said that a kraken slept curled at the foundations of the university, waiting for the deluge that would swallow the world. They said that one would have to be a fool to go to the University of Oxenfloode.

|| A Midsummer Night's Dream, at university, with Puck, oh Puck, studying with Oberon and Titania both, and madly in love with one.

In which Susan identifies "Where's My Cow" as a proto-talismanic anchor for Young Sam's continued health and existence, and tries very hard not to wonder what the Vimes' butler does on his day off. There may also be a lesson about the meaning of Hogswatch, but no one wants to talk about that.

|| Oh my god, it does everything it promises to in the summary AND MORE. Susan is perfect, and I let out a breath I didn't realize I'd been holding when I finished. A++++.

"Dan Rydell. Is going on vacation. For two weeks." Sam gave them a doubtful look. "You hire someone to write your scripts, don't you? Someone much smarter than either of you."

"But I'm not going on vacation," Dan said. He looked at Casey. "Am I?"

"No." Casey sat up straight in his chair. "And certainly not for two weeks."

You and Me in the Wreckage - hapakitsune - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Sidney never felt like he was missing anything from his life; he had his job, he had his friends - and then Geno showed up and turned his world upside down.

Although sweet, the basic premise of this nearly ruined me. Ruined. But hapakitsune makes it work. (Mostly. Ouch.)

try to map the ocean - oflights - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
He gracefully withstands the accusations of being boring and married, despite the fact that only boring makes sense in this context, but he’s sure the stress of the situation is muddling his English comprehension skills. Jordy claps him on the back and tells him he’s a good bro, which Geno already knew, because he doesn’t know of many bros that would take care of their penguin best friends without dumping them in a zoo or attempting to dress them up and take pictures. He is an excellent bro, and if Sidney tries to bite him again, Geno will remind him of that.

Or: the one where Sidney turns into a penguin, and Geno's life is really hard. (God help me, I am developing a serious Geno problem. He is like--guh. The best.)

There are certain expectations in troll society about taking in a freeloader with no place to go, as Dad Egbert finds out when he offers to host two of his son's stranded friends post-game.

AGHHHHH. This is heartbreaking, and so, so good--and it does SUCH A GOOD JOB going through how to kid, and deal with kid, it's like, all the negotiation and respect and firmness that I want from every kidfic, ever. DAMN.

Zombiestuck - sunbreaksdown - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
“Well, shit,” Sollux says, making a commendable effort to break the silence. “Looks like LL's the first one to become a zombie. Did anyone have money on that?”

(They forgot, after a while, that destroying and recreating the universe wasn't ever going to be the long and short of it. They thought they had seen the worst at the tender age of thirteen, thought that they'd been dragged through trials enough, and never suspected that their new world would be threatened by something that didn't revolve around making heroes of themselves.)

Oh my god. Zombie apocalypse, and how. This is horrible, and tw for body horror and gore, like whoa. I read this leaning away from the screen. But I read it.

Scarlet and Bible Black - paraTactician - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
TT: One is not easily shaken from the broodfester tongues, John.
TT: They are stubborn throes.

You know how, when you're reading a story, and you get to a part--a line of dialogue, a piece of imagery, a choice--that encapsulates the way the character thinks, and yet still surprises, and you think:


And you are sold, heart and soul? This fic is like that. I will never think about Rose in the same way--or Sollux, either--and you should have that.

I was avoiding this because of the body horror warning tags, but 1. it may help (if somehow you haven't read it already!) to know that the horror is imagined, and more or less not actually perpetrated by the main protagonist, and that 2. this is extraordinary. This is Rose Lalonde in all of her glory, hard and cold as a diamond, smart as a whip, and, fundamentally, twice as loyal. This is a girl who knows her weaknesses and still has them, who sees them in others, and still loves them, a girl with rage and a girl who laughs at it--and I may, in fact, be a little in love with her now.

Space Bro - Chapter 1 - JumpingJackFlash - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
In which Karkat Vantas is a surly ex-Marine who is absolutely for sure NOT a gray space alien, nor has he ever been a gray space alien at any point in his life ever, regardless of what this weirdo Sollux Captor claims when they meet in a bar one miserable Friday night.

Your name is Karkat Vantas, and you're American, fuckdammit. You were born in fucking Chicago. You served six years in the United States Marine Corps and came home with a purple heart and a titanium knee. You do not have to take this kind of bullshit from spray-tanned college girls or anyone else.

See above for proof of awesomeness; I admit to avoiding this one because I was less than totally excited about the summary, but it's lovely, and Karkat is so well characterized. Also, the bb!KK and Sollux scene had the power to suddenly make me ship them, damn it. ADD IT TO THE LIST. TELL MY MOTHER I SHIPPED KK WITH ALL THE BLIND TROLLS

Construction (The Girl in the Machine) - Chapter 1 - everlit (Ink), helyorin - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
When you're five sweeps old, yet too young for proper quadrants, a failed alliance is almost the bitterest thing you can imagine. It doesn't matter that you'd never desired or pacified Vriska, or she you; she was your sister, yours. And then she wasn't.

Five people whose stories Terezi Pyrope helped write: a tale of games momentuous and trivial, of kingmaking, and of post-Sburb malaise.

I literally hit myself in the face after I finished this, it is that good. (Also, internetspeak is bad for real life dramatics, take note.) UGH. This is AMAZING: a character study that takes all the underlying sweetness and tragedy inherent in Homestuck and lets them breathe. Plus, the art is fantastic.
