“Hey, it’s Science Barbie!” some guy in a baseball cap and a tank called, loud enough to carry over the excited hum of three hundred little girls packed into the auditorium.

[Ten moments in the life of Honey Lemon]

|| *HIGH-PITCHED WHINING NOISE* This is perfecttttttt. I got teary.

Keep Calm And Curbstomp HYDRA - tielan - Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Maria plants her feet and sighs. “I never liked you, Jack, even before I realised you were so damn stupid.”

He blinks. She doesn’t. And then Rollins’ three cohorts go down like the Triskelion’s spires, and Rollins gets a ‘brainshock’ arrow in the forehead.

|| The author casually using the fall of the Triskelion spires as an analogy in Maria Hill's POV should give you a sense of how tightly wound and focused this is. Nice.

so I couldn't fall asleep last night, and I started thinking
about a reverse little mermaid, in which the prince’s sister has always dreamed of life under the sea, and then they are in a shipwreck, and as she hangs onto a piece of driftwood, she sees her brother rescued from drowning by a mermaid. Everybody thinks she’s mad, later, after she’s been rescued. But her brother did turn up alive and unharmed on the beach, and she knows what she saw: a girl, beautiful as the dawn, with a fish’s tail, keeping her brother safe above the waves. She grows sick with longing.

So the princess goes to visit the witch who lives in the woods, and she tells her that she can give her a mermaid’s tail and a mermaid’s breath—but she will always be human in her heart and in her soul, unless she can convince one of the merfolk to fall in love with her. For humans live short lives, and their immortal souls vanish to distant realms after death, while the merfolk live for hundreds of years, and when they die they remain in the sea that is their home.

|| Mostly dialogue-free tumblr-fic (the main character has no voice, though, so), but it is an EXCELLENT retelling, all ladies and learning and non-traditional desires, and I'm super into it.

Paper Bag Diplomacy - galaxysoup - The Paper Bag Princess - Robert Munsch [Archive of Our Own]
“I had just finished recataloging the history section,” the Chief Librarian moaned. “All that work!”

“Our training ground was state of the art,” the Captain of the Guard said mournfully. “Now all of our weapons have been melted!”

That wasn’t the only bad news, unfortunately.

“I have a cousin in the Northern Kingdom,” the Captain of the Guard said. “He says the King wants to take over your kingdom now that it’s been burnt up.”

“Most of it is still fine,” Elizabeth said, annoyed.

|| !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's the aftermath of The Paperbag Princess, and it is tonally PERFECT, what are you waiting for, GO--

still frames in your mind - quintenttsy - 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) [Archive of Our Own]
She still does things properly, of course, picks up the dress she fell in love with months ago with Cameron so he'll know what colour corsage to get her, gets her hair and nails done at the salon, even lets her dad take picture after picture of her and Cameron and weep over how much his baby girl has grown without rolling her eyes. Much.

Hide Of A Life War - Etharei - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“We have received confirmation that there is a hostage situation in progress at a warehouse compound two hours out of Los Angeles, following a multiple-vehicle pileup on Highway 101 this morning...”

The one in which Stiles has lived to (legal) adulthood and, along the way, become a bit of a badass himself.

|| This is honestly amazing. Tightly paced, beautifully characterized, and heart-poundingly awesome. W o w.

mirrors for princes - paraTactician - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
The first thirty-seven times you run the simulation everybody dies.

It’s not gory. This isn’t Call of Duty; no pixel blood or tinny screams. That just makes it worse. You watch a glowing jade-green point move into the pale violet firing-arc of a twin-linked sentry cannon and disappear. You watch as a tide of purple dots drowns a single sky-blue mote atop the tallest tower. You watch as a scarlet and a teal light, so close they’re almost one, blink out together.

Rose and Dirk, plotting. Or, the Strider-Lalondes, and their propensity towards self-sacrifice.

Thicker Water - pprfaith - Inception (2010), The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur and Natasha rarely make it to their Gamma's birthday, but business keeps them in touch.

I can't believe how much I love this.

Arthur has been at the orphanage for almost as long as he can remember. He was three when he came, Gamma, who isn’t really anyone’s grandmother, tells him. He remembers only flashes, bright, brief moments. Blood, noise, pain. They never tell him that his mother died, but he’s not a baby and he knows. He thinks he may have seen it.


Arthur finds her on her first day with the strange women in the strange old house. She doesn’t even know his name before she decides she likes him. He has dark hair and dark eyes and he looks sharp, like the knives of the men that made her daddy so afraid and then set the house on fire when he didn’t want to play anymore.

Übermorgen hol ich mir der Königin ihr Kind - waldorph - Once Upon a Time (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Spawned from a conversation I had with dodificus about why Rumpelstiltskin is so obsessed with taking people's babies. Obviously he just wants to be a daddy. Title taken from the original German, roughly translates to "tomorrow I'll have the Queen's child".


YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Like fairytales? Like ladies? Like grey characters and mythos and families and the edge of horror?


(Oh, I just realized this is waldorph, and now I am the opposite of surprised, yes, lovely.)

Have You Ever Noticed? - Witchofnovember - Labyrinth (1986) [Archive of Our Own]
“Have you never noticed, in all your years of stealing babies, it's never the child's mother who ends up standing in front of you? Stepsisters, younger brothers, even wandering heroes. But no one I talked to had ever heard of a mom being here, before now. Do we create you, I wonder, or do you create us? Either way, human fairy tales have the same rules as your world. The authors never send the mother on the quest.”

synecdochic: [fic][marvel movieverse] when i'm awake i make the same mistakes they make
The meeting breaks up when a harassed-looking man in an ill-fitting suit opens the door without knocking, says, "Excuse me, Captain," and executes a complicated-looking gesture in midair. The quiet woman (either Natalie or Natasha; she hasn't been directly introduced to him yet but Steve has heard people call her both) and the archer excuse themselves (her politely, him coolly) and trot out of the conference room; Thor (Thor Odinsson) beams like the puppy he's been reminding Steve of from the beginning, booms something about valiant battle, and follows. Steve's just closing his mouth and wondering if he should be following when Miss -- Dr -- Toni tosses the tiny ... sliver of glass ... thing she's been playing with down on the table.

Direct follow up to the "I know better than to say I'm not writing this." Toni convinces Steve to follow her outside.

The badassery in this is of a different flavor; more along the lines of feelings and empathy and sticking it to SHEILD, all of which is so believable from Toni (and Tony), and abso-fucking-lutely what this Steve needs it is great.

mesmiranda | Keeping the Doctor Away
AKA the amazing Girl!John pre-relationship fic where she solves a crime with her boobs that everyone has saved but me. The first part is a little wonky (there's some mix-up with names and a character whose providence I cannot figure out), but the rest is pure BAMF, and Joanna is distinctly John and distinctly female.

Which I am always, always weak to.
