Tell the Lord of the Radch what you require. - Crane_Among_Celandines - Imperial Radch Series - Ann Leckie [Archive of Our Own]
Kalr Five, choosing tea sets.

|| Honestly I find the author notes even more satisfying than the fic itself, but it's all a bit of lovely missing scene, tense and fraught and full of people still loving things and the Lord being cutting and giving at the same time.

Imaginary Friend - mousapelli - Haikyuu!! [Archive of Our Own]
It's just a weird coincidence, probably, that Kenma had made a wish on his birthday candles that if being in a Sentai was too much to ask, that he could have least one best friend kind of like that. And then the next day Kuroo Tetsurou was strolling into Kenma's backyard and banging on the screen door like he owned the place. That sense of unreality had never quite worn the whole way off.

"You're like…a real person, right?" Kenma had finally got up the nerve to ask a few days after that. Kuroo had laughed so hard that Kenma hadn't brought it up again, plus Kuroo had put him in a headlock and wanted to know whether hallucinations could do that.

|| Oh my gosh, I love this SO MUCH. It's a little slip of a thing, but Kenma--prickly, and quiet, and mostly settled in it--is perfect: it draws him a little unsure of the luck he has in making a friend who likes him as he is, and it draws it in a couple of brushstrokes. Perfect.

stultiloquentia | who you callin' cactus?
I was in the middle of telling Lis I needed Bitty to mentor a trans frog when the tadpole comics came out. When Lis said, "Trans Whiskey?" I said, "Whiskey is shaped like a Dorito; how has he been on T for less than a year?" but we decided this was insufficient reason to stop me. We'll just lampshade it instead, right? Dorito was his nickname when he played with the Pacific Steelers in the Junior Women's Hockey League. Yeah, yeah, just call him Captain Canada. At 5'10", he was tall. Commentators used to call him a "gritty power forward."

Those were the days.

rewind - Chapter 1 - renquise - VIXX [Archive of Our Own]
It takes all six of them together, but they’re able to determine that:

1. Hakyeon is twenty-two.
2. No one has any idea what happened.
3. Thank god this didn’t happen right before a comeback.
4. All things considered, Hakyeon doesn’t seem too disoriented by the fact that he’s five years into the future.
5. If anything, being the youngest and cutest in the room is suiting him just fine.
6. Hakyeon at a bubbly twenty-two years old is kind of a lot.
7. They really aren’t going to get anything done, so it’s probably best to go home and eat and try to pretend that everything is normal and that this is going to get sorted out by itself. Hopefully before Hakyeon’s morning schedule tomorrow morning, or they’re going to have a lot of explaining to do.

|| Gosh, look at that number 5. Look at it. Look at it taking all of VIXX to establish this. The tone in this is light and delighted and kind of wondering, and it's such a deft Sanghyuk--trolly but observant, even if he's not the BEST at providing comfort... he's certainly not the worst. The specific kind of relationship Hakyeon and he have, too... Just. Really really good. Lots of teasing, lots of tolerating, lots of support.

|| This fic is tiny but it takes me apart in all the best ways; putting a quiet voice to the small uncertain sadness I've been carrying about CLC and not understanding what is up with them, and how they're doing, and this takes the two softest members and has them help each other back to this hard, hard job they've found themselves in.

mutuals; or, how to be a Super Secret Fanboy - jonghyunslisterine - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
taehyung and jimin run big bang fan blogs on tumblr, messaging almost daily.

little do they know- they're actually roommates.

|| This is so cute. Part of me the whole time was just like "TELL THEM," and the shenanigans to not tell each other got a little involved, but that's honestly part of the conceit--"how silly would this be." Also, as part of the someone-sees-you-on-tumblr-will-still-deny-having-a-tumblr-squad, like. I get it. Anyway really fun vmin characterization, and the tumblr messaging parts were delightful.

Jungkook is bad at asking for help, but when a cold turns into something more serious, he doesn't have much of a choice.

|| Is this Hurt/Comfort? It probably.... It definitely is, lol. Anyway, it feels more about the relationship of all 7 members and the way they band together to take care of each other; each of their different responses feel pretty accurate, too, I really enjoyed that. Jin and Yoongi and to some extent Namjoon taking control of the situation or giving direction, Jin mothering, Jimin and Tae and Hoseok trying to provide help physically. I like that the length makes it develop as sickness does; that there's no FIXING it through them caring, but everyone's doing the best they can, once they figure it out. Gen.

“Are you comfortable?” Seokjin asks gently, scooting towards the wall so Jungkook would have a little more wiggle room. Jungkook nods into his shoulder.

|| Touch-starved Jungkook is skittish with Bangtan, but they're willing to wait him out (or drag him into things, if they're Hoseok or Jimin). Really really lovely, if a few grammatical errors. (Ignore me really enjoying Jimin sitting in JK's lap, move along)

"Was FN-2187 a Stormtrooper? I heard he was. Is he?"

It's a woman's voice, trembling and very young. 

Finn pulls the transmitter to his mouth. His lips brush it as he speaks. "Yes. I was. I was, and I'm not anymore. My name is Finn. What's yours?"

The rush of static is a sigh of relief. "They call me Fiver."

|| I started crying here, and still haven't stopped. Finn sparks a revolution.

“Wow,” Jin’s already talking as he walks out of his room, half the boys still asleep while the other three, Yoongi, Namjoon and Jungkook are scattered across the small common area with mugs and half eaten bagels littering the table, “It looks like Yoongi made his bed this morning!” 

There’s a teasing edge to his tone, the surprise forced and overdone, lips quirked into a knowing grin as he gives Yoongi a suggestive look. They all know what he means, but Namjoon still, uselessly, adds, “It’s only because he hasn’t slept there in months.”

|| This is really sweet. The conflict is more with the members than between Yoongi and Jimin, and it doesn't go farther than bedsharing, but. Sweet.

Mayu's classmates weigh in on the current arc of "Let's Love!" and Mayu takes a nap, which is a mistake.

A-chan sometimes laughed to realize that she no longer thought of the day she got her powers as The Day She And Her Two Best Friends Became Superheroes, even though it still stands out as one of those unforgettable moments, with Princess Kyary appearing in her TV like the girl from Ringu, if the girl in Ringu had been wearing neon gothic lolita and trailed dancers and court nobles behind her. Also, it was right in the middle of an episode of Music Station, so not the most ominous of entrance moments.

|| I clicked on this thinking, "No way. NO WAY." but this was delightful and fun and really INTERESTING, the way watching a car crash that also takes out half a city block would be interesting. If somehow all the people in that city block were also evil.

Anyway, a really wonderful take on what Ichigo would do to the HP universe, and how his presence would change things. His outsider perspective is really aces.

the places we call home - jan - Natsume Yuujinchou [Archive of Our Own]
As it turns out, moving in was the easy part. The difficulty was in moving away: in the instant that the train pulled out of the station and the platform began to recede, and in the sudden shock of distance carried down a crackling phone line, and through the moments and moments since, at breakfast or dinner or half-asleep in a room whose shadows he had yet to learn. But he learns those, eventually, as he learns many other things -- things that, years ago, he would have lacked even the vocabulary for. For instance: forming a new home does not mean abandoning an old one. Many things can endure across distances. To be apart from someone does not mean you have lost them.

|| Oh, I loved this. Quiet and meditative in exactly the way the series is, with a fantastic grasp on both Natsume and Madara's voices. Has a couple of brief cameos of Madara in human form that were unexpectedly really compelling for me.

|| Oh. I was worried I was going to be disappointed by this--but I actually really liked it. Strikes the dialogue tone of holic that is so odd: part daily banter, part loaded vagueblogging (basically), part stunningly and awkwardly honest.

Yoongi brings his camera along to the event without thinking much about it, but Jimin really is too cute to resist photographing.

(Alternate-reality where Yoongi becomes a Jimin fansite master.)

|| This is actually just gen, for all that Suga has a raging crush on Jimin and Jimin is adorable back, but I liked it actually really a lot. (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? Okay whatever whatever it's fine.) Part of the fun, I think, is to see the mirror of the slide into OOPS I'M REALLY INVESTED IN THIS BAND, but Suga's very cute about it, and also has a side life. I still don't understand this pairing, but they are both adorable rabbits so okay.

The rules of the book club are as follows:

1. Book club is called book club. If you have some other stupid name for it, don't say it out loud.
2. No inviting boys.
3. No inviting Gina. She only reads Twilight.
4. No graphic violence (in books, or at meetings).
5. Nothing approximating a romance novel.
6. No setting disagreeable selections on fire.

A/N: humans of new york//humans of seoul au (both of which you should check out!) that features the exo members! mainly chanyeol-centric with hints of other pairings.

|| I liked this way more than I expected to! The side-effect of making all the people Chanyeol photographs his band is that--because of the distance--it's even clearer than normal that there aren't any women, and that's disorienting and distracting. But I genuinely liked this a lot; it's kind of saccharine, but like a pancake breakfast.

agine Bucky looking from Sam to Tony, staring at their height, their snarky attitude, their intelligence and loyalty, and also their ALMOST IDENTICAL FACIAL HAIR, and then turning to look at Steve.

His eyebrows climb slowly up.

Steve turns red from his forehead to where his throat disappears into the collar of his shirt and he buries his face in his arms on the table.

"I’m not growing one of those," Bucky says mildly.

Steve makes a deeply humiliated sound in his throat and refuses to move for fifteen minutes.

He’s not one and he’s not the other, and he’s not sure if that makes him anything worth saving.

It's going to be hard to put the relearning Bucky needs into one fic, especially since they gave us SO LITTLE TO GO ON, and what they did was horrifyingly child-like, but this is still good, and substantial, and takes on the dysmorphia and identity trauma.

"Okay," Sam says. Steve's voice isn't shaking anymore, and he's sitting up straight again. Sam's met guys before who were like this, who were careful to never bleed on other people.

|| That insight (which apparently belongs to Chris Evans BLESS HIM) is matched by the rest of the fic, which wonderfully captures being really really into a person, but unsure of your place in their life, and standing up for it anyway. Ugh. Love it.

It also perfectly captures my stance post-movie which is that everyone is functional--even sometimes happy!--but god they all need bros. Bros and support and time.

“Umm,” she said, her hands up by her head as sterile procedures dictated. The roomful of doctors, nurses, and members of an ancient and powerful cult that she was supposed to pretend she didn’t know about all stared at her. “Sorry. That’s mine. Let’s just keep going.”

“Isn’t that the Parks Department ringtone?” asked the slender figure in the scarlet robes with a face Ann knew she must never look at.

“It is,” the less slender figure in the silver robes said. “I recognize it. Your phone plays ‘You’re My Best Friend’ by Queen when Leslie calls.”
