move me or move right through me - Lake (beyond_belief) - Hockey RPF, Sports RPF [Archive of Our Own]
A barbeque in Manitoba is one thing. Ending up in some freaky soulbond with Nugent-Hopkins is another.

Have I really not saved this? I've read it, like, four times. I have never re-read fic so often in a fandom before, goddamn.

Four (Or Five) Reasons for Kidnapping Tony Stark - Chapter 1 - scifigrl47 - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
There are four reasons for kidnapping Tony Stark. Tony's sick of all of them. Well, there's potentially a fifth, but it's highly unlikely that Captain America will suddenly fulfill THAT fantasy. Tony's deeply disappointed about that.

Steve Rogers, as always, is oblivious. At least, that is, until someone who isn't him kidnaps Tony. Then he's just pissed.

Sequel to the one about the sentient toaster and Roombas. Delightfully paced, vibrant and funny writing--overall, just really FUN.

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.


3/9, Part 1.

In which Molly Hooper gets a job, gets a degree, breaks a heart, has her heart broken, falls in love, keeps a secret, saves a life, runs a morgue, falls apart, pulls it together, and finds exactly what she didn't know she was looking for--not necessarily in that order.

Cities in Dust (shit let's be hardboiled)
Newternia's streets are merciless, especially if you happen to be a hard-boiled human Detective on your first case with a crazy Legislacerator.

Oh, your city lies in dust my friend. Your city lies in dust.

OH WOW. This is EVEN MORE PLOTTY than it first appears, is wonderfully illustrated (Terezi's DRESS, OH. MY. GOD!), beautifully, achingly characterized, and plays on my Dave/Terezi feels like Nobody's Business. Read it now.

4/8, Chapter 25/29.

Hemostuck - roachpatrol, urbanAnchorite (t_ZM) - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
The Troll-centric AU where the troll blood-defined caste system is reversed: Aradia is Her Imperial Luminescence, and Feferi is a rag-wearing crazypants of delight, and everyone loves Karkat. Also the kids are gods. IT IS AMAZING.

Currently two stories long, and PAINFULLY delightful; the tumblr has extra info, and promises of more stories.

I am loathe to devote myself to something this sprawling and this unfinished, but it crawled into my ribspace and it is STAYING THERE.

Pairings are many and various, but Firmly Established pairings within canon include (although many of these go through developments, switches, and painful side-trips):


While Karkat, Terezi, Kanaya, are floating around fucking shit up. I know where these kids are going based on reading ALL THE APOCRYPHA (srsly, this includes amazing bg, no lie), um, they're not in the story yet, and I kind of ship Karkat<3Eridian, even though it will NEVER HAPPEN, and doesn't really belong at all in the real world ACK

The Finer Details of Gay Cluckbeast - Chapter 1 - clumsyoctopus - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
Your name is Dave Strider and you are 26 years old.

You have just gotten engaged.

The problem being that you have just gotten engaged to your best male friend in a furious fit of stupidity, champagne, one-upmanship and a weird warm-glowy feeling that occasionally (or more than occasionally) rolls around in the pit of your stomach and makes you act like a moron. You have, over the past 13 years and much careful experimentation, dubbed this “The Egbert Effect”.

You would like to state, for the record, that you are definitely, completely and 100% NOT A HOMOSEXUAL.

As Bro carefully describes to you what, as the DJ, he’s going to play at the reception (almost entirely a medley of Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha), you carefully nurse a Rock Star and vodka like a 16 year old girl who just popped her cherry at prom and try to figure out what the fuck happened over the past decade or so to land you in this mess.

(wtf, what even is this; why do I love it so much, it's in SECOND PERSON and I have no idea who these people are; ugh voiiiices)

luciazephyr: The Stars And Scones Bakery And Coffee Shop, part 4/5 (Dresden Files, Harry/Marcone, Bakery AU)
The Dresden Bakery AU I know I have tagged already, but continues to be brilliant. In this update, Dresden doesn't know how to handle having a family and his abandonment issues, and it hurts me. I just want him to wear the pink apron always.

Also he yells at Marcone for his jealous ways, and every ridiculous overdramatic angervomit is actually totally valid and I love it. Lucia Tanaka/Zephyr, I love you.

Chaos War - astolat - Thor (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
It was never easy to find Loki when he wanted to hide, but he wasn't doing a particularly good job of it at the moment. Probably he didn't think anyone from Asgard would be wasting their time hunting for him while the shining ones churned their way steadily through all the realm.

Waited and waited to read this, and goodness is it worth it. I barely noticed the 35000 words go by, no lies.

A Study in Contradictions - Another Vision of Us Part One
In which there is a merry band of con-people called the F. Well, merry until the fucking Winklevii take their greatest asset, the facebook. As if that wasn’t bad enough, their only chance of getting it back requires bringing back their estranged team member. Eduardo Saverin (of the Miami Saverins) is a con-man extraordinaire, weather dork, sometime cat burglar and Mark’s ex best-friend (it totally counts if you only say that when they were unconscious).<br />
<br />
Wonderful fucking world-building, and I love these crazy assholes and their rage and inability to communicate. Also I am a fucking SUCKER for people fitting in shoulders, just a friendly psa.

takmarierah: FIC: Utopia 1/? (WIP)
"Erik has succeeded in taking over the world, but mutant utopia has yet to materialize. Charles is his reluctant companion."

This is phenomenal. The world building is to die for. Erik is quietly, restrainedly crazy and horrifying and partly right, and Charles is partly right and mixed up and horrifyingly probably partly wrong--this is a trainwreck and a disaster and OH MY GOD it is amazing.

History, Repeating Itself - Chapter 1 - gyzym - Sherlock Holmes & Related Fandoms, Sherlock Holmes (2009) [Archive of Our Own]

Okay, so, this is an AU of the 2009 movie--and as I was reading, I felt that more and more, and the characters started to be RDJ and Jude-look-alikes in my head, and this Sherlock loves chemistry as much as he does in the movie--but REALLY? This is the perfectest modern au of Sherlock Holmes in any and all iterations, and I say that with the all the heartburning love for BBCSherlock. I am not sure how Gyzym has all the voices in her repetoire, but she does, and this John is very different than Danny, or Steve, or Arthur, or Eames. GODDAMM. YES.

Really. Sherlock and John are still named Sherlock and John and they think it's ridiculous and how is this their lives, and there are hair-raising shenanigans, black eyes, Mycroft being a boss, and Irene being awesome, and a lot of weed.

Why are you still here?--Go read.

Patience, a Steady Hand - Helenish - Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
They throw him in the hold with the rest of the—what they stole: bags of grain and heavy wheels of cheese with the monastery seal in the wax, ale and gold and iron and cloth. There aren't any other people, he's the only—the only slave, his mind supplies, running more quickly than he can stand. He doesn't let himself think it again, just works around his bound hands until he's not lying on top of them anymore. The ship is moving, yawing slowly from side to side, and it's dark and warm in the hold. Eames sleeps.

|| Oh. My. God. Ohmygod. More of original historical fiction than Inception-based, really, but wow. Arthur is a Viking; Eames was a monk; Helenish does a beautiful, heartbreakingly developed job of developing their relationship, of not romanticizing the slavery, or what their historical attitudes to it would have been. Unf. God. Wonderful.

Arthur wakes up and realizes the last ten years of his life have been a dream. He is nineteen, and he can barely remember where he is. What he can remember is the ghost of Eames’ hands pressed down on his chest trying frantically to stop the blood flooding up around his fingers as Arthur died (as he woke up).

I tend to turn right by instinct when given a decision. Right-handed, evocate with my right side, and try to do the right thing.

A New Covenant - lightgetsin - Dresden Files - Jim Butcher [Archive of Our Own]
The one that starts with Harry as a woman and then he gets rid of his knighthood and then they deal with Maggie; also there is the part where he falls in with Marcone because YES WHAT. Across-the-board great voices, sometimes the plot moves a little quickly, but that's not the real focus, and the romancing is a slow-paced build enough to make it so very, very worthwhile. Followed by Symbology, which reads as if it will also have a sequel.
