formal absences of precious things - pettey - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
The first night he spends at Jimin’s new place, Jeongguk decides it’s finally the right time to start catching up.

Or, that tedious post-disbandment fic.

|| Parts of this are weirdly hard to follow, like the author leaned to far into compression and got not-enough-information, but there are ALSO a bunch of beats that worked for me really well, in terms of emotion. I did kind of ache the whole time--disbandment, augh, and this is a vision where they love each other but are not super in touch--but that distance provides the space for the: what happens when you start to grow up separately, start to make your own adulthood--and then get back in touch. How do the pieces fit together. It's a compelling question.

all of your sides are good - conditionally - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
It's Jimin's birthday and Taehyung has to do whatever he wants. (Or where Jimin doesn't know what he wants, is what Taehyung wants too.)

|| This goes from pining fic to porn PRETTY QUICKLY, but it's still a good romp, and I really enjoyed all the details from Jimin's birthday that were pulled in. (I still can't believe Tae's fancafe post, either, author.) (Although I wish there'd been mention of them taking the Jimin bus together. That's okay though.)

maybe in another universe - monsterplaza (aesthesiae) - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Jimin wakes up four times, in four different parallel universes. Annoyingly (or thankfully?) enough, his ridiculous clown of a best friend and maybe the subject of his nighttime fantasies Kim Taehyung happens to be a fixture in Jimin’s life, every single damn time.

|| I kind of ached through this, oof. The canon version isn't REALLY long enough to feel as satisfying as I wanted, but it was dealing with the length of the others--anyway. I liked it. The warnings are real; although none of the things mentioned are graphic.

would you believe me if i said i'm in love? - Chapter 1 - cumulus - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jimin offers to be his date for his family's annual holiday party, and Namjoon can't say no. His crush is just a little bit of a problem. He's not in love with him or anything. Definitely not.

|| This was so cute and satisfying. 3/4 pining, j'approve.

Say You Will, Say You Won't - Traincat - Spider-Man (Comicverse), Fantastic Four (Comicverse) [Archive of Our Own]
Johnny Storm found him on a Friday afternoon, wearing the kind of beseeching look that filled Peter with dread.

“I need to ask you a favor,” he said.

“No,” Peter said, swinging away.

|| Marriage of convenience!! I don't go here, but I totally go here. Apparently 616 (is that the right number?) comics canon, refers to some canonical events that aren't hard to figure out. Mostly in it for the banter and the dynamics, which deliver exactly what you want from a marriage of convenience between two superheroes, basically.

And Kageyama could pretend like he didn’t care one way or the other all he wanted, Shouyou wasn’t going to let him pout his way through winter holidays with that grim-reaper look on his face.

quadrilateral - Lirazel - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Hoya sometimes has the brief impulse to email Sunggyu back and demand, “What are you supposed to do when you fall in love with your members?”

Hyung line heads off for their military service, leaving Hoya as leader of a four-member Infinite. And that’s when all his troubles start.

|| I opened up four tabs in Google to learn about the four different members included in this fic, and it was totally worth it. Hoya's arc is great here: learning to be a leader (and good at it), and falling in love with multiple people, and giving decisions to Sungjong when he can--he's a very easy narrator to like, and root for, and it's really fun (and hot) to see his members through his eyes. A+ recommend. Some (very light) d/s dynamics between Hoya and Sungjong, mostly in Sungjong makes all the bedroom decisions so Hoya can relax.

can't fight (the moonlight) - curledupkitten (chanyeol) - EXO (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Kyungsoo had never questioned the story about the broken tree branch and a reckless unicyclist, but maybe he should have.

|| Kyungsoo's a werewolf, and Jongin is distracting. I really enjoyed this, and its approach to werewolf ~mating~--it's actually not very romantic, and Kyungsoo is terribly practical and resistant throughout, only gradually coming to realize that he doesn't want to EAT Jongin, he wants... a different thing. I also very much enjoyed the portrayal of demisexuality--not understanding the fuss at all, until... And the kind of mental gymnastics and confusion that go along with figuring out what your brain and body are doing. Some weird emoticons, but as c'estwhat says, easy to roll with them.

Notorious - Chapter 1 - bob_fish - Fullmetal Alchemist [Archive of Our Own]
Twenty-five years ago ... Chris Mustang is having a very bad month. The censors killed her show, she's in debt to a couple of very dubious businessmen, and she's working as a hostess in the worst bar in town. As if that wasn't enough, her estranged big brother seems to have gotten himself in an auto accident, and some nut decided to make her guardian of his four year old brat.

|| This fic is so absolutely rewarding. I got completely swept up in Chris, in her revelations and her faults, her worries and plans, and the slow-building trust she finds with Grumman and the love for baby Roy. Fantastic, fantastic fantastic.

no heart to recall - KiaraSayre - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
He's been in Steve Rogers's company for less than twenty-four hours and he's already losing sight of his mission.

|| I'm much more INTERESTED in a Bucky that has the thought process to be strategic, so I really enjoyed this. (I'm not sure it holds up--the "I knew him" scene is SO WRENCHING because he seems nearly non-verbal otherwise, and "Shut up" is not exactly the exclamation of someone in charge of his responses. BUT. Totally worth the read.) Often nearly funny, which is rare in this fandom right now.

Next Thursday - wldnst - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In which Stiles Stilinski has a werewolf for a best friend, a support group for that, hot chocolate with Lydia Martin and Danny Mahealani every Thursday evening, and an extremely anticlimactic coming out experience.

|| Awwww, this is adorable, and everything that is most appealing about Teen Wolf--awful, awkward, TEENAGERS. Stiles is as clever and funny and self-conscious and oblivious as he is in the best Stiles narration, and I love watching Danny fall for him from the outside, and the way all the human characters slowly come together. Plus all the humans are my favorite. (Marking it hsau not because it's an au, but because it is so perfectly high school.)

Warnings: minor character death, discussion of past abuse.

First Day of My Life - ChibiRHM - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
The first girl Sid ever falls in love with is named Rachel Forbes. When he first meets her, she’s four weeks old, pink, and squishy-looking. Objectively, she’s kind of ugly, but she’s so tiny when he sees her in the incubator at NICU, and he’s never seen a baby that small.

|| Straight-up baby fic, but a remarkably believable baby. Very, very sweet.

Disentanglement - rageprufrock - Social Network (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
After the abject shitshow of Palo Alto, Eduardo's plans are to stop proving his father right about all his life decisions, shut up, graduate, and keep abusing the slow-healing wound from Mark's knife in the back until all the scar tissue is numb from dead nerve endings.

|| Yes. This is probably the last TSN fic I think I will ever need--not about Mark and Eduardo, but Eduardo, about losing and growing up around it, into it. This is the most glorious gen--not free of relationships, because who is--but not, narratively, the point. (The NYC porn didn't hurt either.)

Five Hockey Players Erica Staal Never Dated - mardia - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
AU genderswap, where Erica Staal ends up becoming the first female captain in the NHL. Really, the title basically is the fic.

|| I want to climb into this 'verse and never come out. Oh my god, the best kind of always-a-girl, and GEN too, and male/female friendships, and the media, and talking to families, and settling in with the team, and I have never loved Cam Ward or Alex Ovechkin MORE.

I squirmed, pinned between him and the counter. "It’s not – look, I don’t run to schedule, okay?" I said. "Don’t – I’m not easy."

"You don’t say." Okay, that much sarcasm was uncalled for.

"I mean it," I said doggedly. "I’m not one of those ‘insert coin, pull lever’ girls."

|| I have a lot of feelings about this fic related to female sexuality that I can't quite sort out, but it's really, really great, and a wonderful Harry I am totally and completely behind. <3

This Must Be the Place - thehoyden - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
There’s what everyone else does, and there’s what Sidney does, and there’s not much intersection between the two.

alksdj;laj;lafj OK SO IT'S OFFICIAL, SIDNEY CROSBY IS REALLY HARD FOR ME, I HAD TO TAKE, LIKE, ALL THE BREAKS DURING THIS. But it's in a really delightful way. For example:

When Jordy broke the news at the reception, Sidney texted Geno. Nothing much, just Jordy’s going to Carolina.

He’d clutched his phone in his hand, waiting for a response, and his phone had obediently buzzed a few minutes later with, Sid ((((((((, and Sidney stared at the Russian emoticons for a minute, all weird and eye-less.

Finally, he had typed back, Yeah. ((((((((((((((((((((((((. He’d worried for a moment that it was too many frowny faces, but he’d figured Geno would forgive him the excess, under the circumstances.


Fucking asshole.

At various points, this fic was also titled: "The Corruption of Captain America by Tony Stark", "Tony's Superpower Is Being An Asshole", "Tony Stark Just Needs A Hug Dammit", "Steve Is Stubborn And Will Make Tony His BFF If It's The Last Thing He Does", and "I Accidentally A Cap Character Study via Tonyfeels". I feel like that collection of titles gives you an idea of the degeneration of this thing, plot-wise, and also a much better summary of this fic than the actual summary.

It's true, it does! I was making bleh faces at my compu because of the summary, but this is cute and delightful.

Back to the Garden - Asuka Kureru (Askerian) - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
Wherein twelve trolls and four humans, having bonded in uncommon fashions and gained a significant amount of martial prowess through great hardships, decide to build their hives and live together in hard-won peace, henceforth proceeding to accidentally become the de facto Lord Protectors of the area and eventually changing the fabric of Society as we know it. Contains several instances of interspecies relationships, quadrant flipping, and scandalously out-quadrant concupiscent and conciliatory affairs, as well as several battle scenes containing numerous instances of minor-character culling and incredible badassitude.


You have no clue how old you really are. It's all tick tock tick tock in your head nonstop and you can feel the eons left to this universe (a truly righteous shitload of 'em, we're talking mucking truck carrying three bazillion farms' worth of horse manure here) and the eons past (all the weight of history, ages upon moldy, dusty ages that didn't exist during your yesterday.)

You are technically older than this universe. You don't know if that makes you any older than sixteen.


Oh right, zombies.
