room to grow - Mysecretfanmoments - Haikyuu!! [Archive of Our Own]
“You’re too noisy!” comes a voice from behind. Shouyou doesn’t have to turn to know it’s Kageyama running after him; he continues yelling.

“Stop shouting!”

Something inside of Shouyou releases. It’s been so long since Kageyama has shouted at him like that, chasing him like he’ll literally tackle him if he has to. It’s immature. Not something third years should be doing—but no one else is up yet. Shouyou runs faster, doesn’t shut up.

|| Third year fic is always a dangerous endeavor, but I love this soft ache of this, the sweet edge and nervousness as they try to renegotiate how to relate to each other.

keep you in my focus - cumulus - GOT7 [Archive of Our Own]
Jackson is a variety star with a regular gig and Mark is his longtime VJ.

|| This is feels longer than its 10k: it's soft, and really satisfying. I really liked all the scenes with them being soft and unwound in each other's presence--that seems like what WOULD be the foundation Mark and Jackson's realtionship. The world feels pretty completely built-out; I enjoyed it a lot.

relief - countingpaths - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
His bones feel like they're being pulled forward, like he has to fight them from curling into the curve of Jimin's body.

There's only so much he can do– His body leans in anyway. They giggle all the way up to their room, half pressed against each other. Holding each other up. Trailing behind the rest of their group and tripping over their own feet, cushioned by the safety nets they find in each other's arms.

“Lost in their own little world ,” he thinks he hears Seokjin mutter.

|| This fic is ostensibly about the first-time that happens in the second half, but it's mostly about BUILD--and what really makes it work for me is the way it weaves this backstory of a 95line who have been circling each other for ages, laughing and semi-breathless every time their gazes catch for too long--and this is the story of them FINALLY giving into that. It hits like you've been reading the gleeful pining for 10 or 20k already; you're that certain these kids are crazy about each other. The Tae has synesthesia thing is almost a little too played up for me in places, but I also really like it, so.

They have their revenge, and the constant threat looming over all their lives has finally passed - but both Kurogane and Fai still have a lot of healing left to do. Fortunately, neither of them has to do it alone.

[Set between the final battle and the end of the series, during their convalescence in Clow Country.]

|| I loved this, but just as it captures the way everyone talks sideways at each other, leaving room for the big huge Issues they all carry around, it captures CLAMPs complete disregard for satisfying endings, lol. So--not unexpected, just. Gosh darn it!!

Mint Yoongi - Chapter 1 - imasinner - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
AU where Min Yoongi is a model from Big Hit Agency and Jung Hoseok is a professional hair stylist. Yoongi hates bleaching his hair, and Hoseok massages Yoongi's head for longer than is probably necessary. Hoseok might be a little too gay to deal with a stunning male model.

|| Okay I don't REALLY BELIEVE Yoongi as a male model, but this is really cute anyhow--lots of Yoongi doing that 'I am quietly judging' but then also slipping into shenanigans when he doesn't notice, and Hoseok taking care of people as a general MO, but getting flustered and loud to distract. Their mutual crushes are cute.

Connection - novilunar - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“I’ll tell you what,” Jimin says, giving Jungkook a quick once-over before taking a pen from Jungkook’s desk and writing another telephone number on the pink post-it. “The next time you’re having technical problems, call this number and you’ll get to me directly. It’s quicker, and you won’t have to worry that Yoongi is the one to pick up. He hates doing user support.” Jimin laughs, putting the pen back in Jungkook’s pen holder. “That’s why he sent me down instead of going himself. I don’t mind as much, especially not when—” Jimin steals another short look at Jungkook and then shakes his head, eyes curving as he smiles. “Never mind. Company policy says I probably shouldn’t finish that sentence.”

|| Exactly what that paragraph implies. Fun, meet-cute-y, not really actual office behavior, but not the point anyway.

When you got skin in the game (you stay in the game) - kleinergruenerkaktus - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
“Rub one out, get some sleep, everything will be better in the morning.”

It slips out before Ransom can stop it. “No.”

“What do you mean, no?” Incredulous. “You’re not seriously going to study now.”

For a moment, Ransom considers going with that, staging a coral reef crisis, anything to distract Holster, but something in his face must have betrayed his embarrassed panic because Holster’s eyebrows knit together and he goes, “Oh, wait. This is your thing, isn’t it.”


Ransom has a system, and it was working just fine before Holster came along.

|| This is delightful okay. Their dynamics are really, really good, and the friendship and the way their particular relationship starts--Holtzer basically challenging Ransom to have an orgasm only on a particular day when he's earned it--builds from a system Ransom already had in place for himself. It feels really natural and delightful and exciting, just like it does for them.

a midsummer's ice cream - conversehigh - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“I don’t even like ice cream, Hoseok.”

“Yeah, I know, hyung,” Hoseok mutters, before putting on an exaggeratedly deep and altogether awful attempt at a Daegu accent. “It gives you headaches.” He doesn’t stop there, eyes browsing the menu above the counter. “I’m Min Yoongi. ‘Taehyung’s Outrageously Amazing Ingenious Sundae’? What’s so outrageous about it? I’ll take a glass of water and a single potato.”

|| This was adorable. Some lowkey pining.

roll with it - conversehigh - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
taehyung’s eyes are wide and full of expectation, practically sparkling in the dim light from the bedside lamp. jimin’s jaw is still slack, mentally grasping for words that just won’t seem to come.

the silence ticks on. he licks his lips. “can you repeat the question?”

“fake boyfriend, jiminnie. fake is the key word here.” when jimin continues to stare in abject horror he tacks on, lip jutting out in a pout, “please. be a bro.”

|| Right, okay, I'm weak. Also I really like the kissing scene at the Halloween party. Supposedly-maybe set in Korea, going by use of honorifics, but it's basically a US college setting.

Chiyo, Nozaki, and Mikorin find complaints on the internet that "Let's Love!" is too boring, so they try to do research on what teenage girls are interested in and are appalled by what they find. Chiyo dresses up like a boy; Kashima is heartbroken that Hori does not dress up like a girl. Waka may be kind of gay for Seo. Mayu's classmates weigh in on the current arc of "Let's Love!" and Mayu takes a nap, which is a mistake.

|| This is silly, and doesn't really go anywhere, but the hijinks are in the same vein as the source material, and I actually do really like the Chiyo/Nozaki arc. Also I laughed out loud multiple times.

Yet even in those early years, before certain...dynamics evolved, I knew that in truth His Serenity preferred to have me at his side, and for reasons that went beyond my service.

"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.

"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.

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.

that may be all i need - theafterimages - EXO (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Chanyeol isn’t sure what to think of Jongdae’s new roommate until they bond over music. Then he can’t stop thinking about him.

|| Yes, a bit bro-y, but I actually liked the way the pining in this was absolutely self-aware: Chanyeol knows he likes guys, and once he realizes he likes Kyungsoo, the rest of the dance is just figuring out how not to put his foot in his mouth and look like an idiot. Fun.

The next time she sees him it's mid-July, the city is disgustingly hot, and she's wrapping up the rest of her comeback with KARA.

Jackson writes a song. And then suddenly, they have a unit. It's not We Got Married.

It's just another day at TS a world where there are three genders, and adolescents gain the ability to shift their gender at will.

|| This is both a really interesting look at people working out their gender (and the author is careful to say that this AU is not supposed to reflect how gender works in the real world, what with settling and age-related gender not actually being A Thing), and at two people coming to grips with how much they love each other.

Precious Things - almostblue (fictionalaspect) - K-pop, B.A.P [Archive of Our Own]
"We all know what the word pretty means. It just means that something is nice. It's attractive."

"Maybe that's not what it means to me," Jongup says.

Jongup thinks that pretty is girls on the street with laughing eyes and wide smiles. He thinks it's pebbles in the ocean but also the way Junhong looks after they've put all of his makeup on him, like a living doll. He thinks pretty is the glow of a cigarette at night and a perfect dance practice where everyone is in line, everyone is in sync. Pretty is improvisation. Pretty is the girls on variety shows.

Jongup can't say all of these things to Himchan, because each of them would become a battle.But if pretty is just a lesser level of beautiful, then Jongup really doesn't understand why everyone always says it about Himchan.

|| A great, warm-hearted fic, about definitions and deciding for your own, and support. I really really liked this. It's like a cup of tea and a hug. I don't know if either of these characterizations are accurate, but they're distinct, and interesting, and complex, and I really really liked.

come from behind victory - friday - GOT7 [Archive of Our Own]
“It’s not a competition, you weirdo,” Mark had hissed at Jackson when he elbowed him out the way so Jackson could do the Pepero game with Jinyoung instead. The ensuing escalation of the screams had been totally worth it, as had Mark’s face been as he rubbed where Jackson’s elbow had dug into his side.

Jackson owns Jinyoung at the Pepero game—though, admittedly, not as much as he would’ve owned everyone else, Jinyoung’s always been the best at giving it as good as he got—and then Mark’s throwaway comment catches up to him.

He’s right. It’s not a competition, but it totally could be, and Jackson Wang wins anything he puts his mind to.

|| Honestly, I still only halfway know who Jinyoung is, but this fic is darling, and it gets really great once Jinyoung cottons on. Also I love Mark in the background. (Tagged someone dared them since the basic conceit is that a game dared them. They're just daring themselves.)

|| Okay, so apparently D.O and Chanyeol would travel home together pre-debut, and I'm going to take that as an excuse to believe that yes, they were good friends.

(Even though the idea of BTS debuting without Suga kind of boggles my mind; he has written not only a third of their rap parts but SEVERAL OF THEIR SONGS--and then without Jin too?

And I'm a SUCKER for that kind of dynamic SO. Sungyeol seems like kind of an asshole in this, but there's probably more there, esp. if you're more familiar with canon.

i hate this love song - So Hot (Leo/Hyuk, NC-17)
Sanghyuk is hot. He's hot, and he's horny, and he didn't even know tomcats could go into heat.

|| so jarrah we were just talking about wishing there were catboys that didn't have the weird cute-ified slavery thing it's like they heard us

i hate this love song - 예쁘다 (1/3; N/Ravi, R)
Hakyeon keeps the wig.

|| Oh my god, yes, all the "So Hot" fic, okay, thanks, wow. (All PWPs. I think the Hongbin/Ken might be my favorite, but I'm pretty fond of all three. Leo is terrible in the second, I love it.)

Hazard Analysis of Hurricane-Prone People - Chapter 1 - signalbeam - 月刊少女野崎くん | Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun [Archive of Our Own]
Kashima's fans have reached critical mass! ... and other subplots.

|| The summary does not do this fic justice at all. It's delightful: funny, ridiculous, matching the manga beat for beat. It's separated out in to very short little sections, much like the manga does one or two pages, but I didn't have trouble with that at all--in fact, I liked it tremendously. It helped carry the puns, ridiculousness, and all the gags, which I think is actually necessary to maintaining the characters. Seo, Kashima and Chiyo are SPOT ON.

Spring, Summer, Fall - longleggedgit - Big Bang (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Some relationships take longer to figure out than others.

|| Oh, I liked this. I don't have enough of a handle on Taeyang's personality--on or off-stage to really know how this hit me, in that respect--but I really enjoy this GD: settled and knows what he wants in so many respects, kind of a wild person in others. Loved the ending.

Platonic Shades of Gay by boonies (Jaejoong/Yoochun, G-Dragon/T.O.P)
Seunghyun claimed he wanted to come over to ask Yoochun for acting advice, but Jiyong and Jaejoong tag along and the whole night slides into chaos immediately.

|| I am such a fan of this fic. I still don't know who JYJ is, really (are they YG or SM I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW), but I like both the JYJ characters, and I love, love, love how young GD and TOP are in this. And this GD slid under my skin and vibrated there, rather like the real one. Which I loved. Sorry about the terrible, terrible title. It's really actually well-written--so much more so than that title could ever possibly suggest.

Let Me Grow Young - Vera (Vera_DragonMuse) - Guardians of the Galaxy - All Media Types, Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Between heroic deeds and misadventures, Gamora accidentally does the things she missed out on in childhood.

|| I loved this--particularly the Gamora and Rocket, but there is a fantastic moment with each of the others as well. Loved loved loved the Groot moment, particularly.
