Think Tidy - nivo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“So these are the rules,” says Hoseok's new roommate, his voice brooking no argument. “Don't touch my shit. Don't leave your stuff lying around the place – I'm serious, anything I find is going in the trash, I don't care if it's a napkin or a midterm paper you've been slaving over for days. Don't mess with the furniture. Don't leave dishes in the sink or on the counter. Whatever you use in the kitchen, you put it back exactly where you found it, and I mean you put it back pronto. None of that 'I'll do it later' bullshit. I prefer to get stuff like laundry and groceries done on Saturday, and it'd be cool if we could do it together, but it's fine if that's not your style, I'll figure something out. And I guess that's basically it. Questions, comments, early regrets?”

“I think I'm a little bit in love,” Hoseok confesses in a rush.

|| This is great, this is so, so, great, the characterization is great and the turn at the end--GREAT. So great. I think of this fic and grin.

|| 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.

Exclusive - Chapter 1 - copperbadge - Marvel, The Avengers - Ambiguous Fandom [Archive of Our Own]
There are a thousand questions I want to ask. How he's dealing with losing a world, and for that matter with finding a new one. How he's learned about modern technology, what he thinks of history, what he hoped for when he put the uniform on again. It's hard to speak, however, over his grief. And I reason, perhaps a little guiltily, I have two weeks here. I can ask later.

Still, I'm opening my mouth to speak when Jarvis does instead.

"Captain, our guest has an engagement."

"I do?" I ask, looking up.

"Right," Captain Rogers says, and looks determined. "I'm supposed to take you to see Clint and Natasha."

It appears my carefully thought-out plan for how to approach the Avengers is being preempted. By the Avengers.

|| OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS. I kept aching while reading it--the way you do when you see a stranger do something so utterly, relentlessly HUMAN that the world expands and constricts a little--these are the Avengers, flawed and prickly and COMPLETELY team. Furthermore, copperbadge creates an underlying plot in the person and backstory of Bruce/the Hulk, that is just brilliant as a focusing device.

Not to mention the reveal at the end, which had me grinning at the screen and waving my hands like a lunatic. Extremely recced.

Crowning Glory - lazulisong - Star Trek (2009) [Archive of Our Own]
Spock is not proud of her hair, because pride is an emotion, and vanity is worse, but it is long and straight and shines blue-black-green like the pictures of the ravens she sees in the holos that Mother brings from Earth for her. It is longer than any other girl's at school, kept braided and looped up in the simple, childish verison of the style she will wear as an adult of her clan. It is undeniably Vulcan, not like her eyes or her nose or especially her ears or build. Nobody mocks her for her hair.

hso2012_collabs1 | Fic/Art: The Shadiest of Bars (Alpha!Dave<3Alpha!Rose)
Opening weekend of SBaHJ: Behidn the Scenes. Ten minutes into the first screening the Internet was already decoding it, as piranhas decode a capybara. An hour after the credits reached the key grip there came the first flash mob. Twenty-nine teenage girls had all linked hands on a subway platform and begun murmuring the opening lines one after another, a beat delayed, as though singing in a round. They had kept it up nearly four minutes. Someone had sent him a badly oscillating clip: red sweatshirts in the dimness, a felt-tip maze drawn on a plump arm, the blue sudden brightening of a screen through a pocket. The overlaid harmony in their recitation, unintelligible, implacable, a conduit carrying the world’s long current of voices of girls who warn rightly, and aren’t believed. At the margins he had seen passers-by shut up and stop. A chill had passed over his own shoulders, as they all drew out the last note. Attagirls.

|| Oh. Oh, oh, oh. Really picks up steam in the second section, where the politics mirroring life nearly took me apart (quoted above), and then just--the ending is phenomenal. All much, much sadder and more beautiful than I can really imagine the Homestuck world ever being--but how sad. How stunningly, gut-clenchingly wrought.

1stclass_kink: Prompt Post: ROUND ONE
Charles knows there are ways he could be better, things he could be making more of an effort to understand. Raven, for example: but he has promised to stay out of her thoughts. Denied this, he knows, he has trouble comprehending the nature of her preoccupation with her mutation, with her body—his own body is something of an afterthought, just a vehicle for his mind. This doesn't mean he has divorced himself from it—he takes care of himself, eats well, has a long run every morning before breakfast, tries to minimize his vices. He likes sex, likes the soft yield of another body beneath his, but he's never been desperate for it. He's never understood how it can ruin a man.

Look at the characterization in this shit:

"I was vaguely aware," says Sherlock, slowly. John isn't predictable at all, and he rather adores that. That had been the reason for the decorations after all, hadn't it? To read John's reaction. Like texting, tea, and technology, John has become essential in a way. Life is the more pleasant for his existence. Sherlock could do without the lot of them, but he'd really rather not. The realisation is accompanied by mounting horror.

By mid-week, the panic has subsided and he is bored again.

Warm Light of Morning
"In which there is inevitably a morning after." Oh my god. This is so great. I'm loving that, more and more, I'm seeing different ways that people can put these two together and still have them recognizable characters. And this? This may be the one I was waiting for.

"The night the aliens came was the first time John understood the extent of his predicament." Oh, I want to quote the ending to you, but I won't, I won't. Lovely development, characterization, and a well-orchestrated ending--hit all of my narrative kinks, why don't we.

Thought Experiments
"On the television in the background a lion has just brought down a zebra and it's still kicking feebly. It feels like some sort of strange metaphor for his life at the moment."

|| Oh my god, this this this. I believe both of them wonderfully and their development, and libraryofsol does a lovely job of rendering the intelligence of the BBCWatson. I shiver with it.

Raising Sand
Oh my god. The Brad voice is amazing. And I completely believe this Ray--the way he thinks more than he wishes he did; the way he keeps going after the cheap thrills, even though they always let him down; the way he's a little bit in love with, a little bit in awe of, Brad. I love the sand everywhere. The ending is perfect.

Listen for the Sound
"Three times Toph misses home, and one time she doesn't." OH. Toph. Oh. They are all lovely, but the last one is killer.
